Bible Truth
These Last Days Bible Study

The tongues movement of the churches of the World today was actually prophecied in the Prophetic Word of a Mighty Creator. Fact is, it is also discussed in detail in the Word as to HOW tongues is to be used by this very same God to not only edify the saints, but to cut the hearts of non-believers as well as glorify the Lord Himself.

Many believe that to speak in tongues is to display an open and outward sign that the one speaking is a Christian filled with the Holy Spirit. But does the Bible declare ALL that have the Holy Spirit will do this? No it does not as you will soon see. Yet the people of the world are not only declaring all that have the Holy Spirit will speak in tongues, they also declare they MUST speak in tongues in order to prove their Christian walk! They also state that the speaker of tongues will NOT understand that which is being spoken. Some will even state that it is a "Heavenly language" that only the Holy Spirit understands at the time of utterance.

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!
  • Meet the 'evangelical' Catholics who are remaking the GOP
    "More than 50 years after John F. Kennedy's Catholicism stirred fears that he would be more loyal to the pope than to the people, Catholicism isn't nearly the political liability it once was". --Of course it's not a liability anymore. It's now part of the political landscape. Scripture warned God's people thousands of years ago this day would come and we see yet another prophecy unfolding right before our eyes. Though not mentioned in this story; speaker of the House John Boehner is Roman Catholic as well some non-GOP political heavyweights like Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and John Kerry just to name just a few. In fact, 6 out of 9 US Supreme Court Justices are full-fledged members of the Catholic Church, and the rest sympathize with Rome since it was Rome that set them on that bench. On top of that, so-called evangelical politicians know full well who they serve as George W. Bush once said on camera he saw "God" when looking into the eyes of Benedict XVI. Appealing to the conservative Christian base is a must in order to bring about legally mandated Sunday worship with as little resistance as possible. So a Catholic takeover of the Republican party is no surprise to those of us who have eyes that see. And while it's sad to see the people deceived en masse, at least we can take comfort in knowing only a few more prophecies need to be fulfilled before our true King finally returns to bring this world to an end.
  • Israel Eyes Becoming a Cashless Society  
    "The motivation for examining a cash-less economy is combating money laundering and other tax-evasion tactics, thereby maximizing potential tax collection and greatly expanding the tax base". --Actually the real motivation for going cash-less is to make it that much easier to control buying and selling when every nation on Earth, including the Jewish state of Israel, receives the mark of the beast. Jewish politicians are trying to legally mandate Sunday as an official day of rest as we speak. It's probably no coincidence the 'Israel Today' news service published this story on May 26th in accordance with Pope Francis' first visit to that country. What better way to pay homage to him eh? After all, as prophesied, both the media and governments of this world wonder after the beast anyway. So they're just doing so to further glorify the Lord who saw them do this long ago. Israel's postal service even went so far as to issue a set of 12 stamps commemorating Francis on that very day, no doubt signifying they plane to give the 12 tribes of Israel to him soon. For reasons only they know, the Vatican has a tradition of doing things on specific dates. For example, Pope Clement VII was born on May 26th, 1478. Coincidence? Not when you see that one of his contributions to Catholicism was the Papal Bull Intra Arcana which authorized the use of violence to evangelize "by force and arms, if needful". Not that they hadn't been doing so for centuries prior to that anyway; but he did make it "official." So perhaps this is a way of honoring him. Honestly I don't know for sure, but ultimately it doesn't matter since the Lord Jesus Christ, whom both the Catholics and Jews deny. One in a doctrinal mash up mixing Paganism with Christianity, the other, in an outright blasphemous hatred. Still, this will only go on for little while longer. Until then, He that is hated by most and loved and worshiped by His obedient bride, says, "Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast" (Isaiah 26:20)
For Your Health
Prophecy Study

Safe, Simple Remedies

  In regard to that which we can do for ourselves, there is a point that requires careful, thoughtful consideration. I must become acquainted with myself, I must be a learner always as to how to take care of this building, the body God has given me, that I may preserve it in the very best condition of health. I must eat those things which will be for my very best good physically, and I must take special care to have my clothing such as will conduce to a healthful circulation of the blood. I must not deprive myself of exercise and air. I must get all the sunlight that it is possible for me to obtain.    

     I must have wisdom to be a faithful guardian of my body. I should do a very unwise thing to enter a cool room when in a perspiration; I should show myself an unwise steward to allow myself to sit in a draft, and thus expose myself so as to take cold. I should be unwise to sit with cold feet and limbs, and thus drive back the blood from the extremities to the brain or internal organs. I should always protect my feet in damp weather.    

 

 

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?
