    Those scientists sure do have a lot to say, a lot of conclusions about about a planet the size of a pin-point in their telescopes.

    Babies are cute because our Creator designed them that way.

    And we love him for it.

    turkey13,
    To understand the identity of Babylon the Great in Revelation 18 requires an understanding of the influence the ancient city of Babylon had on the world and its religious history. New York City does not match up as it is a commercial entity, not a religious one.

    turkey,
    You have your referenced scriptures all mess up.

    Most churches/faiths will not be able to do that.
    Very little moral fiber is the reason.

    Regarding the Jews in our time, and the current nation of Israel; any special favor they once had in God’s purposes ended back in 33 C.E. when that nation rejected their Messiah.
    As a result of their rejection of God’s means of salvation through Jesus, the Christ, he said that their house (nation) is abandoned to them and they would be scattered and disapproved. – Matthew 23:37-38

    From that time on, the true Christian Congregation would be the ‘spiritual nation’ that would take advantage of the blessings from God’s Kingdom with Jesus as King. They are the “Israel of God” now since they appreciate and are obedient to the teachings of Jesus our Lord. – John 17:3

    kaydeebeau,
    Excellent insight from you.
    We tend to think everything is corporal, but what occurs in the spiritual realm is more than we sometimes realize. That is why reading and understanding the Holy Scriptures is so fascinating.

    Thanks for your comment.

    THERAPTURCOMES makes some good points in his discussion but he also contributes to the general confusion of the times and seasons of our present world.

    I do not want to contribute to this confusion but to offer an alternative information source that can set matters straight.
    The teaching of ‘the rapture’ is not the answer as it divides people and is not accurately addressed here.

    To offer straight and clear answers to the worlds problems and to see God’s remedy for this troubled world and how we can benefit from God’s Kingdom,
    just visit the web-site; http://www.jw.org

    Don’t worry about it. There is no accuracy of statement under this subject anyway.

    therapture.
    Thank you for the Youtube reference but I will stick to the Bible on this issue.
    In the spring of 31 C.E., Jesus Christ boldly promised: “Just as the Father raises the dead up and makes them alive, so the Son also makes those alive whom he wants to. Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his [Jesus’] voice and come out.” (John 5:21, 28, 29)
    Yes, Jesus Christ promised that millions now dead will live again on this EARTH and have the prospect of remaining on it forever under peaceful, paradisaic conditions. (Luke 23:43; John 3:16; 17:3; compare Psalm 37:29 and Matthew 5:5.)

    Since Jesus made the promise, it is safe to assume that he is willing to fulfill it. I hope you will find this conversation interesting. It changed my life and viewpoint of the future.

    Sean,
    If you die, or I should say when you die, would you want to be resurrected or do you want to stay dead?

    therapturecomes, you said “The soul is immortal and will either be in the lake of fire or heaven”

    I do admire your zeal, but if your zeal is favoring false ideas then it is wasted.
    But you have to realize that is completely opposite of scripture don’t you?
    There is nothing in the Holy Scripture that will endorse your statement that the soul (nephesh) is immortal.
    Unscriptural statements contribute to a lack of credibility.

    YellowFin,
    That “noise” is loud indeed.
    It is no wonder why people get upset over trivial matters.

    Jim S,
    This is 1 Thess. 4:16-17:
    because the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a commanding call, with an archangel’s voice and with God’s trumpet, and those who are dead in union with Christ will rise first.
    17 Afterward we the living who are surviving will, together with them, be caught away in clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and thus we will always be with the Lord. 18 So keep comforting one another with these words.

    “those who are dead in union with Christ will rise first”. – Who are these?
    Hint, Rev. 14:1

    “Afterward we the living who are surviving will, together with them” – Who are these?
    Hint; John chap. 10 and Rev. 14:1

    be caught away in clouds to meet the Lord in the air; – Question: Can flesh and blood enter heaven or do they have to die first?

    Is this resurrection to heaven for everybody?
    John 10:1-16 – Note verse 16

    Sincere Bible students need to meditate on the scriptures to understand. – Luke 8:16-18

    Jim S,
    Just for your information, Jehovah’s Witnesses do not believe in, or teach, the false idea of ‘the rapture’.
    Before you make a statement, make sure it is accurate.

    One of the ‘signs’ or events signaling the presence or parousia of Jesus as the appointed King of God’s Kingdom is the increasing frequency of earthquakes on the earth. – Matthew 24:1-14
    When we see these signs happening with increasing frequency and severity, we can determine the “last days” are here.

    Some will try to ridicule the meanings of the signs but others will be awake.

    jhrusky,
    This idea of going off to “get a glimpse of heaven” springs from the idea that we have an immortal soul that survives after we die.

    Christian denominations that believe in an immortal soul get this teaching, not from the Bible, but from ancient Greek philosophy. The Encyclopædia Britannica says: “Biblical references to the soul are related to the concept of breath and establish no distinction between the ethereal soul and the corporeal body. Christian concepts of a body-soul dichotomy originated with the ancient Greeks.”

    God does not condone merging his teachings with human philosophies, such as belief in an immortal soul. Instead, the Bible warns: “Look out that no one takes you captive by means of the philosophy and empty deception according to human tradition.”—Colossians 2:8.

    Satan is a deceiver who tells lies and influences people to believe unscriptural ideas. He even transforms himself to appear as an angel of light and truth. He has done this since the beginning, telling lies to confuse so many people.
    His motive is clearly seen. – John 8:44
