You are already sealed for the work; that mark in the forehead thingie, God supplies all our needs, we'll compare notes when this monster ends. By the way, the spirit told me to wrap this up, that he was happy with it, I have a 13 page word doc, trying to think how I can e-mail it to you. I posted it in my other blog, but the blog architecture is too old, it looks real goofy.I don't have the best mind in the world.........but I'm open to being used by Him.
There's no 144,000 virgins popping up in Israel... there is a dispensation; an outpouring of the spirit. There is a river of waters of life flowing from the throne. There is a household economy/administration supplying the holy spirit to the church. There is these two olive branches pouring oil into the lampstand. There is a ministry of the holy spirit unveiling our eyes to understand the scriptures. That ministry is pouring the holy spirit into us, so the unveiling happens as we grow in the Lord. As we are poured into, we pour out into others, so we are built up and we build others up and the holy spirit multiplies. Eventually, what is produced is the 144,000 - which might be just a number - but what is produced is this new church within a church; the manchild. That's why I said, the kingdom doesn't just appear - sure, in the vision it just appears - but in real life we have to build it; we abide in the vine and grow into the manchild, it is a dispensation, a pouring out of the spirit.Kind of confusing. So the 144,000 are still here somewhere and they know who they are and what they must do? And the thousand-year reign is just with them, not everyone?
Society is speeding up. There's scripture talking about the pace of life, and the Lord laments that the people prefer the quicker pace of life; you know; moving at the speed of business, right? Even that word busy*ness, rushing to and fro and knowledge is increased. And then there's, we've sown the wind and we shall reap the whirlwind.I haven't read this yet, @Days, but I have a question for you that's been coming up in my mind off and on lately. Is there anything in biblical prophecy or in your own thoughts about time speeding up in the end times?
Time seems to be going by faster to me, but then, it always seems that way as we get older (I remember hearing my parents say time is faster when you're old). But now I am seeing memes that say things like "seems like this summer just lasted a few minutes". And I've seen a lot of those. So is it just oldness? Or is there anything saying end times will be sped up in a real sense?
Emily if you send me a PM with an email addy, I will forward this 2nd apology to you, it is a word doc, 20 pages. I'll send you the first apology also The Expectation of Faith, also 20 pages.Fascinating take! Just outstanding!
Some of us are listening. More than you might think. You don't realize how liked and respected and appreciated you are around here, do you?
I try to read everything Days posts. Whether or not I have a reply, I probably read it, and would bet a lot of people did.
Please never think you're insignificant. Not in the eyes of God or man.
