Bible Truth
These Last Days Bible Study

Continuing from last month...

The Lord has given me a view of other worlds. Wings were given me, and an angel attended me from the city to a place that was bright and glorious. The grass of the place was living green, and the birds there warbled a sweet song. The inhabitants of the place were of all sizes; they were noble, majestic, and lovely. They bore the express image of Jesus, and their countenances beamed with holy joy, expressive of the freedom and happiness of the place. I asked one of them why they were so much more lovely than those on the earth. The reply was, "We have lived in strict obedience to the commandments of God, and have not fallen by disobedience, like those on the earth." . . . I begged of my attending angel to let me remain in that place. I could not bear the thought of coming back to this dark world again. Then the angel said, "You must go back, and if you are faithful, you, with the 144,000, shall have the privilege of visiting all the worlds and viewing the handiwork of God." -Ellen G. White Adventist Home page 543.2

Lesson 6: Invisible Forces Behind the Scenes

10. How will God protect His people through the calamities of the last days?
  Psalms 91:11_______________________________________________________________

Angels are not the spirits of dead people as some may suppose. No one had yet died when Adam and Eve were driven from Eden. The Bible speaks definitely of the existence of intelligent beings in the universe before the earth was created (Job 38:4, 7)..

11. Are angels assigned even to children?
  Matthew 18:10_________________________________________________________________

Prophecy in the News
Daniel 7:25 “he shall… think to change times and laws.”
Headlines Declare Mark of the Beast (Sunday Law) is Coming!
  • VIDEO: Rome Readying for Sunday Laws
    As expected, disobedient church leaders are right now putting forth a concerted effort to suggest church "action" is now necessary to address the increase in calamities around the world. If you are a student of prophecy you know this "action" will eventually lead to the long prophesied excuse that Sunday Laws are needed to appease God so as to stop the disasters. We also know this excuse will be fabricated as a way to stop the Loud Cry from proceeding. That being said, ARE YOU doing your part to proclaim the Loud Cry?
  • Iranian Leader Celebrates: U.S. Has ‘Given Up’  
    ""Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei took to the stage last week to proclaim the U.S. has "given up" on using military force to stop its ambitions and to boast that a worldwide "Islamic Awakening" cannot be stopped." --This is exactly what was to be expected when we all saw how Obama helped a deserter get home after releasing 5 top officials in the Taliban. Islamic leaders would see this as an open sign of weakness on our part (as planned) and then Rome's puppets in DC could be called upon to allow Rome's puppets in Islam to run rampant across the land so as to further shore up the foundation needed to enforce the mark. The entire world truly is a stage. Problem is, the ones directing it are quite evil and rather childish when you look closer. Once they realize what they gave up for the chance to sit on the top of this huge ball of dirt, weeping and gnashing of teeth will ensue.

Kind Acts and Pleasant Words Promote Health

Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones. Proverbs 16:24{ML 152.1} 

Kind, cheerful, encouraging words will prove more effective than the most healing medicines. These will bring courage to the heart of the desponding and discouraged, and the happiness and sunshine brought into the family by kind acts and encouraging words will repay the effort tenfold. The husband should remember that much of the burden of training his children rests upon the mother, that she has much to do with molding their minds. This should call into exercise his tenderest feelings, and with care should he lighten her burdens. He should encourage her to lean upon his large affections and direct her mind to heaven, where there is strength and peace and a final rest for the weary.  {ML 152.2}

 

 

Continuing from last month...

OK, the two witnesses were just described as "two olive trees" and "two candlesticks" in Revelation 11:4. Before going further I always like to check and see if any aspect of a prophecy is repeated elsewhere in the Word. Doing so makes defining the symbols that much easier. In Zechariah 4:2-4 we read, "I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof: And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof. So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord?"

This is what I truly find fascinating about prophecy and the Scriptures. There are actually many instances in the Word of God where the symbols are directly defined after a prophet sees them in vision. That is a good thing because it allows us a quick and precise definition. So... what are these symbols defined as?
