Bible Question and Answer
Welcome to our bi-weekly post Bible Question, Answer and Discussion where we provide Bible verses, answers and advice to the questions and concerns you have. During the course of the last two weeks readers have submitted their questions and today we are going to answer some of them. So please join us and feel free to chime in on the discussion in the comments section below this post.

Before we get into this week’s questions we would like to point out that you are helping to spread the Word of God by your continued submission of questions. Because of your ongoing participation these Q&A posts have been read thousands of times. Without your participation this section of our site would not exist. So if you have a Biblical or non-Biblical question you would like to ask, submit it now for our next edition of “Bible: Question, Answer and Discussion“.

Question 1:

Name: Janelle
Question: What does God do to those that commit suicide?

Answer:

Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question Janelle.

I think that is a question only God can answer and I am sure it would be on an individual basis. We do know it is a sin to commit murder and committing suicide is murdering yourself (Exodus 20:13).

However, when someone commits suicide there mental condition is not stable. Other conditions and factors like drugs and alcohol alter the frame of mind so the decision to take ones life is not made with a clear head.

One thing is for certain Janelle, our Father is completely fair and I trust that He will make the correct judgement (Psalm 25:8-10, Deuteronomy 32:4, Proverbs 16:11).

 

 

Question 2:

Name: Helix
Question: Who are Gog and Magog? If it’s supposed to be Russia that doesn’t make sense to me being that Putin is a Christian and Obama is not. My opinion. Aren’t we supposed to be Biblical allies with Russia?

Answer:

Name: Brandon T. Ward & WEB Staff
Answer: Thank you for the question Helix.

Gog and Magog would be the geographical region north of the Black and Caspian Seas which is Russia today (map below).

I have to ask what makes you think Putin is a Christian, because he says so? obama says he is a Christian too, do you believe him? What did Christ say? Please turn your Bible with me to,

Matthew 7:16-20
16Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?”

17 “Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.”

18A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.”

19 “Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.”

20Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”

What righteous actions has Putin done? None. Putin is working hand in hand with the children of Satan accomplishing their goals. Putin is a part of the same game Helix, he definitely is not a good guy as we have documented on this site.

We are not Biblical allies with Russia. The United States was settled and founded by the children of Jacob. You can document this by reading the, “Abrahamic Covenant“. While Russia would consist of the offspring of Esau. Scripturally the two have been enemies. Genesis 25 documents Issac’s wife Rebekah conceived baring twins. Please turn your Bible with me to,

Genesis 25:23-26
23 “And the Lord said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.”

24 “And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.”

25 “And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.”

26 “And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau’s heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them.”

The firstborn always has the birthright, but our Father told Rebekah the opposite would be true in her case. Why? Because our Father knew what Esau did in The First Earth Age and in this age of flesh Esau sold his birthright for a bowl of soup (Genesis 25:27-34). To go a bit further, “Esau despised his birthright“!

Genesis 27 through Genesis 28:1-7 will document Esau actually tried to kill Jacob though the two eventually were able to come to peace in Genesis 33.

The take away here is we need to always analyze the fruits of an individual especially if they claim to be a Christian.

 

 

Question 3:

Name: Violet
Question: My question is what do you think about Russia moving into the Middle East near Jerusalem?

Answer:

Name: Brandon T. Ward & WEB Staff
Answer: Thank you for the question Violet.

Russia has actually been in the Middle East since 1946 when they established an Embassy in Syria. Then in 1971 Russia established a Navel base in Syria as well. So they are not new to the region, though we do see them actively engaged in combat with “terrorists” which is a change from the norm.

There is a large amount of destruction taking place in the Middle East and there are more armies in this region than at any other time in world history. One thing is certain Violet, God’s Word states Jerusalem will be surrounded by armies and it does seem like those armies are being readied (Luke 21:20). All of these armies claim they are destroying ISIS, but the only destruction we can see (their fruits) is the destruction of Syria itself, not any so called terrorists. I believe it will be these terrorists (who are funded, trained and equiped by Western Powers) who will be used to continue to bring down nations who are not on board with the new world order agenda. Of course the children of Satan shift their plans regularly so all we can do is watch and analyze these events.

 

 

Question 4:

Name: Rob
Question: If you got Baptized in the Mormon faith and now know the truth; do I need to get re-baptized? If so, does it have to be in a church like SC? It seems impossible to find churches that are similar.

Answer:

Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question Rob.

We are not baptized in the name of a church, we are baptized “in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost(Matthew 28:19-20). We are baptized “for the remission of sins” and when we are we “shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost(Acts 2:38).

As long as you were baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit you are fine. If not, I would get baptized, a Christian friend can do this for you. No fancy pool is needed, a creek or river will do just fine. Christ Himself was baptized in a river after all (Mark 1:4-5, Matthew 3:13-17).

Depending on your situation if do you need to get baptized and decide to go to a church they do not need to hold certain beliefs, they just need to baptize you correctly as outlined above. Lastly, you can also go to Passover and get baptized by the Shepherd’s Chapel.

 

We would like to thank our Father for giving us this platform in order to spread His most precious Word. We would also like to thank our readers for submitting their questions and giving us the opportunity to share them with the audience.

  1. Reading all these loving heartfelt comments. I feel led to share a beloved hymn, by John Fawcett, an orphan, from the 18th, 19th century:

    “Blest be the tie that binds our hearts in Christian love; The fellowship of kindred minds is like to that above.”

    So thankful for our meeting place to bind our hearts in Christian love!

    • That was simply beautiful…and well appreciated, Martha! I am also thankful as you are, for WEB and “Christian love”!
      I would not take such love for granted…for it is so precious, and we only have a short time in the flesh to make it meaningful.
      Thank you for sharing.
      We are truly blessed.
      I share this song with my dear brothers and sisters in Christ, which my daughter Nichelle has *selected* for one of her wonderful classmates, who have volunteered to sing at her Mom’s funeral on Thursday. Lyrics included.

  2. I’m still studying what the deadly wound is,could it be that when the armies encompass Jerusalem and be trodden down by the gentiles? Seeing that this is God’s favorite place

    • Thank you for the comment Mark. I definitely think it has something to do with Luke 21:20. I also believe the three kings of Daniel who are removed have some involvement as well. Something I am studying myself more.

      • O’ Brandon, I got a little bit *stumped*…when I read the part of your response to Jerry C…in stating: “The surrounding would be *BEFORE* the Tribulation not after or *DURING* it.”
        I’m not certain *if* this is one of the very few things that we may have agreed to disagree on…in the past…regarding Jerusalem being surrounded by Armies…I may have to re-visit your study on that again. It’s definitely another one of the Biblical Topics, that peaks my interest, as well.

        Just to share my thoughts on that again, if I haven’t already….

        Luke 21:20 “And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.”

        ******I view this verse as the gathering of SATAN’S ARMY at JERUSALEM…all there for the *COMING OF THE DESOLATOR*…their father, commander and chief and god…which *must* occur before CHRIST RETURNS. That is the same “abomination of desolation” spoken of by Daniel the prophet. Matthew 24:15 “When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Jesus was quoting from: Daniel 9:27 “And He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until
        the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.’ ”

        ******This part of Daniel, is the closing part of the gap theory of the seventy weeks of years, from the going back to rebuild the streets of Jerusalem to each of the coming advents of our Lord.
        There was seven weeks of years missing, causing that gap. So Jesus is using that portion of the gap theory in His warning to us at this time of the end. The abomination by the desolator [Satan] is when He stands in Jerusalem calling himself God and the people of the world believe him.

        In the translation, “the desolate”, it is a person, and should be translated “DESOLATOR”. That desolator is the “ANTICHRIST”. and is “SATAN” himself. It is not a king in Europe, or the middle east, for Satan is the “star” that fell to the earth in Revelation 9:1, and he will be given the key, or the authority to the bottomless pit.

        When the seventh trump sounds, the seventy weeks of years will be
        over, and you will face the “LORD CHRIST YESHUA” either as a happy bride
        (the church)…or…in shame for chasing after the Antichrist.

        I believe that’s how I have learned about those Scriptures above, over the years! But I will re-visit again to see how you came to your position on those, and have fun doing it! 🙂 It’s all good, when we earnestly seek God’s Truths!

        • Thanks for the note Eye. Yes, we disagree here. There have been some comment exchanges in the past (see links below). You know the desolator is Satan. When Jerusalem is surrounded with armies then we know the desolator is near. I believe Mark 13:14-16 documents this for us as well.

          Mark 13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

          Mark 13:15 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house:

          Mark 13:16 And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.

          When Satan is about to make his apperance those in Judea should flee, because it will be bad news in that region for a true Christian. Remember, Satan is the one who causes the spiritual desolation. How does Satan appear? Exactly how Christ will appear and where does Christ appear? On the Mount of Olives.

          When Jerusalem is surrounded by armies that is when Satan will show up to help fix our world. These are all interesting topics for sure.

          • Thanks for the links, Brandon! Truly appreciate the quick reference! Just as I thought originally…we had already touched on our differences…so it’s good to have the opportunity to revisit those, and see where it may lead me! Maybe to the same position…but I do appreciate another perspective and all that you do, in any event!
            Know that!

          • You are very welcome.

          • Just remember Satan will be going after those that have the seal of GOD in their forhead and that’s a pretty good target for Him. conquering the rest of the world will be easy, GOD’S elect not so.

        • These armiesI that compass Jerusalem might be the Islamic armies, locust and Arab have the same meaning ( Arbeh). Studying Joel 1-2 they are now in the devouring stage and what better way for the antichrist to come on the seen once they surround Jerusalem cause Rev tells us he only has 5 months, 2 1/2 months behind the seens then appears. I hats not very long at all, just my thoughts

          • Thank you for chiming in Mark. There are a lot of scenarios that is for sure.

            I would have to disagree with the behind the scenes comment. Satan only has five month and Daniel 9:27 documents that Satan is here for all of it and he will make a covenant with world leaders. This is not going to be a behind the scenes show. Even though Satan has supernatural powers, he will need every second of those five months to drag as many people to the grace as he can. Remember, Satan is the false Christ and Christ is returning to the Mount of Olives. I fully expect Satan to show up with a glorious display on the Mount of Olives with his entourage in tow.

            We briefly discussed this subject in a prior QA, but it mostly focuses on the Two Witnesses. This maybe of interest to you.

          • I see now, I was using PM’s message that satan would be behind the scenes for 2 1/2 months but Rev doesn’t say that it says 5 months, so in other words does the world know that he is satan in the first 2 1/2 or the middle when he makes the covenant in the midst of the week?
            Thanks Brandon for clarifying

          • The world is going to think Satan is Christ day one in my opinion. Christ will appear on the Mount of Olives and so will Satan. In doing so from day one Satan will be imitating Christ. Once Satan arrives he will start working on the covenant with world leaders.

            Something worth noting. Satan and his children have been working behind the scenes for thousands of years even to this very day. When the Tribulation starts (those five months) everything will be front and center. I hope this clarifies.

          • Hi Brandon, when can I ask another question and thanks for all your knowledge

          • If you mean for our biweekly post you can submit your question here https://worldeventsandthebible.com/bible-questions

            Have a good day.

          • Mark, thanks for the response, I appreciate your comment…I
            can see that you have gotten past the milk and getting into the
            “meat” of God’s Word! I’ve read *both* your comments and blessed are those who earnestly seek God’s Truths!

            The *DESOLATION* by Satan and his *Locust Army* biggest punch…is a spiritual destruction which causes the “spiritual death” of the soul, not the physical death of the flesh body. The *Great Tribulation* of the *spurious messiah* is actually a time of *PEACE* and PROSPERITY*…though we should be well aware…that *NO* True *PEACE*…without the *True* PRINCE OF PEACE / CHRIST YESHUA*! The one who shows up on the scene…*FIRST*…is a just a *cheap fabrication*…Satan, in his role as Antichrist! Daniel 11:24. To that end, this Book of Joel gives us the details of that fearsome locust army in the 9th chapter of Revelation and also how God’s warning, His Word, would be “Trumpeted” in the last days.

            It is written: Revelation 8:1 “And when he had opened the seventh seal,
            there was silence in heaven about the space of HALF an hour.”

            *****This first “half an hour” will be completed in the eleventh
            chapter. This is the hour of temptation… the *FIRST* part of that hour, 2 1/2 months, which you are referring to…is what I’ve been also taught, he’ll spend *HEALING* the “deadly wound” and the kings / rulers / leaders of the Earth, will give their power over to him, thus having a *One World System*…totally healed and firmly in place, with *no* resistance, since the whole World will be on-board by that time.

            Satan constantly accuses us and causes much ruckus in Heaven, where he is right now..and there is “silence” when he is cast / kicked out of Heaven unto Earth…and as you already know and Brandon already mentioned…he only has 5 months…he’s quite aware it’s only a very short time!

            TIME TO WORK AT LIGHTNING SPEED TO *DECEIVE* THE WORLD INTO THINKING THAT HE IS TRULY GOD / CHRIST! ALL…*EXCEPT*… THOSE WHOSE NAMES ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE, THAT IS!
            By the *SECOND* half of that hour or 5 months tribulation…Satan will be claiming to be God / Christ Himself, reining in both Political and Religious into *ONE* unGodly System! Maybe that’s what you are referring to…as I believe it’s taught by Shepherd’s Chapel?

            It’s the *Kenite* or locust army, (locust being symbolism, to illustrate their method of *DESTRUCTION*… four (4) stages, which are mostly underground, and their deeds) which will include the “Arbeh” or Islamic forces as spoken of in the Book of Revelation. God refers to this army…as…HIS* army… because He simply *controls* BOTH the negative and the positive.

            The Book of Joel…is written to the people who live in the time of the END as we know it to be…our generation…people that were born following the return of the House of Judah / the Good Figs…along with the naughty or evil Figs of Jeremiah 24 to Palestine, and the establishment of the tiny Nation of Israel, which addresses the events that will usher in *The day of the Lord*…which is at the *7th* Trump.

            The “Kenites” infiltrated the ranks long ago. They took over the offices of the scribes, as reported in (I Chronicles 2:55)…they tampered with the Word of God. They took over the priestly duties that God gave Levi, during the time that the Jews went out of Babylon (Ezra 2:43-67).

            The Locusts have been doing their damage for quite sometime now… they are forcing us into the *New World Order / One World System*! That’s how they are, and that’s how they march! They’ll climb into our houses if we would let them. Just turn on the boob tube and watch. But don’t listen to what is being said…instead, listen to the *Word of our Heavenly Father* and decipher what is *Truth*…and what is fiction.They have infiltrated every denomination perverting the words and meanings in our Holy Bible. Their M.O is written of in…

            Joel 1:4 That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpiller eaten.

            *****Bullinger, in the Companion Bible gives us a good outline of these stages, for us to reference. These four words show the *completeness* of the destroying agencies. The Hebrew, reads:
            Palmerworm: This is named *1st* of 4 different stages of the Locust. English = hairy caterpillar Hebrew gazam, or the GNAWER. The pupa stage.
            Locust…Hebrew : “arbeh = the SWARMER. The imago stage.
            Cankerworm….Hebrew. yelek = the DEVOURER.
            Caterpillar. Hebrew hasil = the CONSUMER. The larva stage. Compare Joel 2:25, and Nahum 3:15, Nahum 3:16.
            “Gnawer’s remnant, Swarmer eats:
            Swarmer’s remnant, Devourer eats
            Devourer’s remnant, Consumer eats. ”

            God gave the Locusts freedom to swarm, while we still have a little bit more *GNAWING* of the Locust to go. The real *DEVOURING & CONSUMING*…would *not* occur until Satan and his Fallen angels are here on earth to join the Locust army…but Satan, their commander and chief…was warned of God…they cannot touch those who have the Seal of God…*in*…their foreheads. We are to stay in God’s Word, have the *Full Gospel Armor, on and in place, thus keeping it loaded with the Seal of God in our brains / minds…we find Satan and his Serpentettes the Kenites…to be an ABOMINATION…*not* at all tempting, they cannot *DECEIVE* us in all that they do, once you are *sealed* with those!

            The locusts would *NOT* be alone in the LATER stages. They would have Esau (Russia + their Alliance along with them to keep them company)…

            There is an evil engineering in this world. Watch Watchmen, it’s late in the day…*BUT*….it is written:
            Joel 2:21 Fear *NOT*, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things.
            *****That’s your Salvation…our Father lets us know *beforehand* what’s transpiring.

            Praises, Glory and Thanks be to our Loving Heaven Father YHVH!!!!!!

          • Thanks EyeonGod
            I’m not a very good writer, and what you wrote was exactly what I have in my brain. God gives us different gifts ,I wasnt very smart in English but the Holy Spirit showed me how to understand what I read, I can’t explain it but you know what I’m talking about
            Thanks brother

          • Thanks for your response, Brandon! We are on the same page, as far as the timing of the “silence” go…agreeing that it would be the 2nd half of the 5 month tribulation. I may not have made that clear enough it seems…but would not like for anyone to be confused or misled by what I’ve stated…so I truly appreciate you addressing that.

            What I was trying to convey in my comment, are some of the events that would transpire in each of the 2 1/2 months of that 5 month period…and the part with the “silence”…I addressed in regards to what poster Mark stated, being:

            “Rev tells us he only has 5 months, 2 1/2 months behind the seens then appears.”……to which I *specifically* responded to…in quoting myself directly below:

            “he’s quite aware it’s only a very short time!

            TIME TO WORK AT
            LIGHTNING SPEED TO *DECEIVE* THE WORLD INTO THINKING THAT HE IS TRULY
            GOD / CHRIST! ALL…*EXCEPT*… THOSE WHOSE NAMES ARE WRITTEN IN THE
            LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE, THAT IS!
            By the *SECOND* half of that hour or 5
            months tribulation…Satan will be claiming to be God / Christ Himself,
            reining in both Political and Religious into *ONE* unGodly System! Maybe that’s what you are referring to…as I believe it’s taught by
            Shepherd’s Chapel?”

            *****Note well…how I’ve ended that paragraph….and compare what half I am addressing there…which is…”the *SECOND* half of that hour or 5 months tribulation”….All other additional information, prior to…and following that paragraph were only meant to share some of the events that leads to…and transpire…during that entire 5 month Tribulation of Antichrist.

            Hoping, that I’m making myself clear enough.

            In other words, I reiterate…I’m stating that we *are* on the same page there. I should have made that much clearer for the sake of clarity and for younger viewers…but you took care of that, which I truly appreciate, Brandon!

            p.s. On a different note a bit here…

            My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I ask that you keep our dear, sweet daughter, Nichelle…not biological, but has been birthed from our hearts, and are her Legal Guardians for almost 5 years now, because of her parents destitute situation. She has just turned 16…and is the most humble, kind and God / Christ loving 16 year old we have ever met…who after being raised Catholic since birth, up till she entered our care…had asked to be Baptized…after studying God’s Word with S.C and WEB along with me…and is always enthusiastic and happy to share what she’s learning, with her peers…

            She has just lost her *biological* mother *AND* father, who have passed on to be with our Heavenly Father…both in their early 50’s…within a couple months of each other…LITERALLY! Her mom passed 2 days ago…and has not been buried yet. But our daughter is witnessing to her blood relatives, who are absolutely devastated at this time… like a champion for God / Christ…being cradled by the “Comforter” Himself…which even I am so amazed by…she is so calm, us knowing fully well how dearly she also loved her biological parents! They raised her with lots of love and cared the best they could for her, but have placed her in our care, in order for her to have a better and more fulfilled life. Both her *biological* parents suffered *multiple strokes* over the past year…with the last, being one to many. What are the chances of that happening…for *BOTH* her biological parents, within a couple months of each other, huh????? God alone knows! Since she’s been with us, Nichelle has moved from being at the *bottom* of her class….all the way to the *top*…making straight A’s in Maths and English, which she totally hated before…thus boosting her confidence in herself!

            What a *WONDERFUL* God we serve!!!!! PRAISES AND GLORY BE TO HIS HOLY NAME!

            We do have another daughter, also placed in our Legal Guardianship…and they both actually run with such enthusiasm and delight, when I call out…*CHURCH TIME*!!!!!!! (Which we do daily with S.C via internet) Can you believe that? It’s true! 7 & 16 yr. old’s!!!! In today’s world!!!! That…never ceases to amaze me…mainly because, I witness such an awesome thing in these two beautiful girls…in comparison to their peers today…and can’t believe how *blessed* we are for having them in our family!

            Please take this, as a Living testimony, while you pray along with us for continued courage and strength, as some of those *giving their sympathy*…*seem* a lot like…those so called friends of “Job” in the Bible, trying to encourage her to show *crying grief* and may even say very insensitive things at this time, to our recently orphaned daughter, in their Biblical ignorance! We are forever grateful to our Heavenly Father, for what He does for those who love Him! I truly believe that she and my other 7 year old daughter…were placed in our care, to raise them up in the way *God* wanted them to go…which may have turned out tragic or differently, had they remained in the care of their biological parents! And I pray that we do just that, by the Grace of God!

            If these words are not coming out right…forgive me…we are coping with with this sad and unfortunate situation, with God’s Help, the best we know how, amidst meeting with folks, whose beliefs are not as strong and are even non-believers, who think my daughter should be crying out her grief at this time…thinking that she is suppressing it! But she truly understands where her parents are…and we are trying to cope..as best and sensitively as we can with those who do this, in extending their condolences. We know that they mean well…they just do *not* quite understand, that it is…

            The *HOLY COMFORTER* at work here!

            God’s blessings upon all those who earnestly seek, love and serve Him!

          • Nichelle and sis, EoG and family, just keep being the light of the world through Jesus Christ regardless of any damage the enemy has done to your families and loved ones. If that means you appear to others to be overly comforted in a time of grief because you know to cry at a birth and rejoice at a death, then so be it. Satan has put a lot of heavy burdens on people and it is very difficult for some to trust God and shuck off those burdens. I know, been there, done that! God bless you to be patient and understanding with them. Thanks for sharing EoG and my prayers are with you all. Connie

          • Thanks so much for your comforting, uplifting words and prayers at this time, Connie! I’ll share it with my sweet daughters, Nichelle and her sis Leanna…I know that they would truly appreciate another *believer* reaching out to them, in blessed reassurance. I do! God works through His willing and faithful servants! Praises be to His Holy Name!
            You hit the nail right on the head…we appear “overly comforted” to those whose faith is not as strong, or they do not *believe* in God / Christ…PERIOD! That’s sad! We are living “witnesses” of His existence…but they cannot understand it! No surprise there, nothing new under the sun! For it is written:
            John 1:5 And the LIGHT shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it NOT.
            Thank you for sharing that you….”know, been there, done that!”
            May God / Christ continue to bless, lead, guide, direct, touch and protect you and yours Connie…and all those who love and serve Him!

          • Eye, I often thought about that verse. I always thought it ironic that Jesus was born at night instead of day, as we are his children of *light*. But I believe John 1:5 explains to us very well why he was born at night. He is that light in the darkness and those who live in darkness comprehend Jesus not!!

          • I truly appreciate your thoughts on that, DFG!
            Thank you for sharing!

          • My prayers are with your family Eye, and I feel the need to say this to you again…that your example in raising your adopted girls in Christ is a true inspiration and blessing to hear by all who follow and love your spirit.
            Peace.

          • Wow! That’s very humbling, DFG!
            To God be the Glory!
            I’ll share this with my girls….they would truly appreciate it!
            Peace!

            2Thessalonians 1:12
            .
            “That the name of the Lord Je’sus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Je’sus Christ.”
            .
            This verse is why Eye, that I consider your example such a blessing, for when I hear you tell us about the job you have done in raising your girls in Christ; it is I who am humbled by your giving spirit of love in the name of Christ.
            God Bless your shining example given to us all, for your example shines that light that should come from us all by following His Word; which is He himself, in the flesh; i.e. Immanuel = God with us.

          • In everything Good…to God be the Glory!
            God uses us in so many ways, DFG! We can only hope and pray, that we meet all of them.
            Thanks for your kind sentiments and that beautiful verse…for our story is a true living testimony, as to *how* God truly works towards a Good end, for all those who love and serve Him. I believe that the following Scripture, summarizes well…what you’ve shared in that wonderful and inspiring comment…and…expresses how I feel about our trials and situations.

            Romans 8:28“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

            ***** God uses people, and nations, and things so that His Word, and Will shall be fulfilled. God will use some people which are called “the elect”, as well as others that have “free will”… but He will not interfere in any free willed person’s right to choose. It doesn’t matter whether you are of the elect or given the rights of the free will, for when you seek after God and repent of your sins “in Jesus name”, and study to know that Will of God; then the Spirit of God will lead you and direct you in accordance to His purpose.

            UPDATE: Nichelle, her sis, Leanna and I continue to do great, by the power of the Holy Comforter and all your prayers, my dear brothers and sisters in Christ…we thank you! Nichelle comes daily to this Forum, and finds comfort in reading your comments as well! She feels the outpouring of your Love…it puts a smile on her face just to re-read your comments, and in even the upvotes :-)! That’s special! God’s using all of you to reach her in such a comforting way!

            Her mom is being buried on Thursday, 21st January…and Nichelle is doing just fine! Though I must admit, it still amazes me how well she is handling this. and being strong for her blood relatives and all those who witness her courage, comfort and strength at this time! What a wonderful thing to witness…the wonder working power of the COMFORTER at work! And I’m blessed, that God is using all of you, who reached out to us at this time with your prayers and inspiring words through it all! We acknowledge this…and are thankful for such LOVE!
            God bless you and yours, DFG…and all my brothers and sisters in Christ…and theirs!
            Peace.

          • Dearest EoG & Daughters, Nichelle & Leanna; I also am just now seeing your post and just want you all to know how very inspiring you are during this time and i’m so very sorry for your sadness of missing your loved ones even knowing that they are with our Lord, in Jesus name. Praying for your Family for the Great Comforter will be with you all and with much love from your brothers and sisters in Christ; and if there is anything that you all might need, then please know that i’m here and we are here for you all with much Love. No words are right at this time; especially coming from myself; ((not great in word department)) and you all are Amazing in your Faith and Love and I am Thankful to even know you on this our Bible study and World Events site. Thank you and God Bless you and your Family, in Jesus name. May His Peace be upon you all. Much love to you all as well.

          • To God be the Glory, for giving us each other, Kim! What amazing encouragement and outpouring of love that flow through you, our dear brothers and sisters! Thanks for your prayers and beautiful words Kim…and all of you! Nichelle takes such comfort in them, and so do Leanna and I! What a true blessing you are…God uses you all in amazing ways…we are forever thankful and grateful!
            You’ve found just the right words to say, Kim…don’t doubt that…God speaks through you as well. That’s special!
            UPDATE: Funeral is over, Nichelle cried a bit…she said it’s mostly for all those who do not understand, where her Mom and Dad are, her tears were for them, who are suffer this loss and grief, and is so pained, as if death of the flesh was final. She loved and misses her biological parents, but is comforted to know that they passed on praying to the Lord, and asked Him for forgiveness for all their sins! Her Mom accepted annointing before passing on. The Comforter was at work throughout it all. Nichelle feels so much at peace and she wanted me to express that to you all. She’s keeping busy, hitting the books…and using these moments to share God’s Amazing Love and Comfort with other loved ones of her parents…who seem inconsolable.
            What amazing strength and courage, she displays…she’s a wonderful Seed Planter, who loves our Lord!
            We thank all of you my dear brothers and sisters in Christ! Nichelle loves coming on here to read your replies, as we revisit Topical Studies, keep the Watch,and all of WEB’s Goodness! She feels so special…and she is! Little Leanna is a great little reader too…their eyes light up with such outpouring of Love, from our WEB family!
            We thank you!
            May God / Christ bless, lead, guide, direct, touch, heal, protect and comfort, you and yours…and all our brothers and sisters and theirs!
            Peace.

          • I am really sorry to hear all of that, but encouraged by the actions of your daughter. She sounds like a brave young girl who is keeping our Father close to her heart. Our prayers are with you, your daughter and the other family as well.

          • Thank you so much Brandon for your prayers and comment…it means a lot to us at this time! I’ll share this with my daughter Nichelle…
            She thinks that you are so *cool*…coz of your love and service to our Heavenly Father, and you are young looking! 🙂 She appreciate seeing young folks also, in God’s Service. She doesn’t see that kind of commitment from the young folks today much.
            Hey! If it works for her, drawing her closer to God / Christ…it’s all good! 🙂
            Allow me to share another youngster she admires, with you and my dear brothers and sisters in Christ….Jefferson Bethke…

            Thanks for the video; tell Nichelle I loved it!!

          • Hah alright well tell her we think she is cool because she loves the Lord.

          • EoG, I’m just seeing this, and want to say that my prayers are with you and your family.

          • Hi Martha and all who send their condolences…
            This is Nichelle who has lost both my parents…..
            Thank you my dear brothers and sisters in Christ…
            I appreciate all your prayers comforting words and I love you!

            Nichelle.

          • I think that these verses are fitting to your daughter that lost her parents
            1Thess 4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

            14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him

          • How very comforting those Scriptures are to us, at this time Mark! I’ve shared it with my daughter, Nichelle, who is quite thankful for them, and would also share them with her biological family, who are *not* as strong as she is being, at this time! You are being used by God, to help put a smile and be comforted through her loss!
            God Bless.

          • I know how Nichelle feels and her being as strong as she is, that’s the Holy Spirit. I watched both my parents die, mom from cancer and dad from diabetes in 2000 I lost a14 year old daughter in a car wreck although I was in pain God pulled me thru it. He gave me compassion and scripture to help those in their time of loss. Always remember where they went and that is heaven
            God bless you EOG

          • We’re so sorry for your loss, Mark! What a heartfelt, inspiring testimony on how God / Holy Spirit pulled you through multiple griefs! Nichelle just read this…and is encouraged and comforted by what you’ve shared…since she is taking this, one day at a time…and remembering “where her biological parents went”…is a HUGE part of what gives her the courage and strength to go on! In addition to that, we are witnessing how God is using you and my other brothers and sisters on here, to help pull her through! That’s very special! She feels so blessed, and so do I! The HOLY COMFORTER at work!
            Thank you for sharing, Mark! We also pray for continued courage and strength, whenever, you have those moments, where you’ve missed them terribly!
            To God be the Glory!
            God bless.

          • To God be the Glory, Mark!
            You are doing just fine! I thought that’s what you were trying to convey in your comment there! God uses each of us who earnestly love and seek Him, to help each other grow and understand His Word! To whom much is given, much is expected. We are thankful for each and every one of His many gifts!

            Luke 12:48 “But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes.
            For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and
            to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.”

            Just as a note…I am a *sister*… 🙂 I get that all the time! There is no way of you knowing any differently!
            I truly appreciate your reply, and you’re welcome!.

            God Bless!

          • I’m sorry, hope we can have more discussions

          • There’s absolutely nothing to be “sorry” about, Mark!
            It was just an FYI kind of “note”! 🙂
            I welcome the exchange in discussions regarding God’s Word and World Events!
            Very exciting times we live in!

          • Hello EyeonGod
            Done some more studying
            Daniel 9 Gabriel shows Daniel the understanding of the desolator (satan) stand in the Holy place in Chapter 11 there is a raiser of taxes, don’t know who this or do we? And then in a few days he will be destroyed the next verse, and in his estate shall stand up a vile person (satan). That’s a time frame, don’t know when though, these verses tell me that satan, antichrist comes in all at once peaceably and prosperesly
            for the full 5 months and 2 1/2 months later he causes the sacrifice and oblation to cease. I understand what Brandon was saying. The Holy Spirit shows me and I want to share

          • Well….If I could remember correctly….Pastor Arnold Murray seems to think…that this “raiser of taxes”…is none other than… Al Muslimeen Obama… with his cohorts! But there’s also the following, which have been floating around…but let’s go to Scriptures *first*…then *you* decide!

            Daniel 11:20 “Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.”

            *****This verse moves to another period in time, because Iran has not fought in any more battles. Remember, though, in Daniel’s time Persia (Iran) also covered much of the what we call *Iraq* today. What is interesting, is the fact that the one that was to stand for Islam wasn’t even a religious person.

            However, in time that changed. When Saddam Hussein saw how he could use Islam to win over this people, he became religious. “The raiser of taxes” is exactly how the world sees Saddam. He taxed the world (through oil prices), as well as the Iraqi people. Saddam reached a level of wealth the Shah of Iran could not come near.

            Are you alert for current events in the middle east? Keep in mind,
            Daniel is writing to people far in the future from his time. The purpose
            was to let *those people* know the events just prior to our Lord’s return. *We*….are the people Daniel wrote to. This fight over the branches of Islam is history, and many of those people are dead. There is strife in the Middle East….and the conflict now is between Islam (the Muslims) and the tiny *Nation of Israel*…of both the good and bad figs (Jews).
            *****ALL LEFT TO BE SEEN!

          • EyeonGod, what you said about the silence falling in the first half hour when Satan is cast from Heaven to earth is not Biblical. The silence in Heaven starts in the middle of the Tribulation (midst of the week).

            Before I document that I want to go back to my point in a previous post about Satan being in plain sight for the entire Tribulation.

            Revelation 17:12
            12 “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

            Satan is here for the entire Tribulation and he will be in plain sight. This verse documents the fallen ones who come with him, ten to be specific, will, key word here, receive power as kings for how long? One full hour. Not half, documenting they make the covenant with world leaders from the very start as Daniel 9:27 documents and it will be in plain sight. You cannot be a king and hide behind a curtain. The Tribulation is going to be Satan’s time to shine, not hide and he will make a grand appearance.

            As for the silence in Heaven in Revelation 12:7-9 we see a great war in Heaven taking place between Michael and his angels against Satan and his angels. Let us document the results of that event.

            Revelation 12:9
            9 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”

            Satan has just been cast out in this verse, this starts the Tribulation and the one hour of temptation.

            Revelation 12:10-12
            10 “And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

            Silence in Heaven? No. A loud voice in Heaven when Satan is cast out.

            Revelation 12:11-12
            11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”

            12 “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”

            Silence in Heaven? No. Rejoicing in Heaven as Satan has been cast out.

            The loud voice and rejoicing in Heaven at Satan’s departure can in no way shape or form be interpreted as silence. Instead, there is excitement and rejoicing as our accuser is cast out.

            The entire Tribulation is (was) seven years, which is the same one hour, the same one week. If there is rejoicing at the start of the Tribulation, then the silence must fall within the last half of the Tribulation (last half hour), not the first. When the seventh seal is opened Satan causes the sacrifice and oblation to cease (Rev 13:11) as told in Daniel. This is also when he makes war with the Saints (Rev 13:7) for forty two months (Dan 7:25, Rev 13:5) and when the Two Witnesses arrive for 1260 days (Rev 11:3). 42 months is 1260 days, which is 3.5 years, half of the Tribulation, the midst of the week.

            This is why there is silence is Heaven, everything that has ever happened on earth leads up to this last half hour. Satan is here one full hour, one full week and the silence in Heaven does not start until the last half hour, the midst of the week.

    • The deadly wound is one of the kingdoms mentioned by Daniel (& Revelation) that will also become an End Time kingdom. Some believe this to be the Ottoman Empire (Islamic). This End Time kingdom will be made up of 10 kings; after which, the Anti-Christ will subdue 3 of them and the remaining 7 will give their authority to rule over the the AC for a total of 3 1/2 years (or 42 months or 1260 days; based upon a Hebrew lunar calendar). It’s also my understanding that the armies encompass Jerusalem during the mid point of the Tribulation (if you reckon it to be 7 years) starting off the Great Tribulation.

      • The wound is to the system, but that can consist of a lot of things. The surrounding would be before the Tribulation not after or during it. We have documented that many times on this site. Also not 3.5 years, but five months as the Tribulation was shoretened.

    • That’s quite an interesting topic to study indeed, and needless to say, is one that also peaks my interest! I agree with Brandon, in that: “The wound is to the system, but that can consist of a lot of things.”

      Revelation 13:3 “And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
      *****This chapter speaks of two beasts, but when we separate the two beasts, we see that one is a *POLITICAL* beast, while the second and last beast is a *RELIGIOUS* beast. The “deadly wound” would most like happen to the *EARTHLY KINGS* Organization…by *IMPORTANT PLAYERS* rebelling and backing away from that One World Governmental System*…which at some point in our generation…makes it go sour causing it to *NOT* work! That’s the wound to the *POLITICAL* beast, which is a POLITICAL *System*…and today it is alive and ruling under the name of “ONE-WORLDISM”. It’s title is called the “UNITED NATIONS”. It is under the banner of that System and it’s…*GOVERNING AGENCIES*…that the entire World….is getting together; to work for their so-called “PEACE”.

      That’s the *Kenites* hard at work, pulling strings within the United Nations, trying to *bypass* GOD…and create their *own* salvation. Nothing new under the sun! This was also done with Nimrod and the *TOWER OF BABEL*….when God and the angels came down and confounded the only Language at the time! Our Salvation is in Christ Yeshua today, though God YHVH had *types*…before Christ came in the flesh…we are *not* to try and create our *own* salvation! As we see…it brings GOD down, when they take it to such *EXTREMES*! This System and
      *Governmental Order*…was the same as Satan used in the *First Earth Age*…as we saw and read in Revelation 12:3…however, there are some major differences…a different topic for another time!

      Notice, that through the control of that *Kenite* Organization called the “United Nations”, PEACE talks are carried out in various Nations, China, North Korea, Ireland, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, etc… and it is all brought about to draw *ALL* Nations of the world into…and under…the United Nations’ control, and that of it’s Agencies. The *PEACE* presented by them and their people is *NOT* acceptable in any agreement…*UNLESS*…it meets the United Nations agenda.

      I could *speculate* about a few things that can turn this World upside down in a jiffy…causing a “deadly wound”…and one of them would be….messing with the *DOME OF THE ROCK* while under Mohammedan’s / Islamic control!!!!!! Christians, Jews and Muslims all worship at the *Wailing Wall* in that Region…talk about things heating up worst than we’ve ever seen it in our lifetime!!!! But I’ll stick with Brandon, as far as the “deadly wound” could “consist of a lot of things”! Won’t let my imagination get the best of me! 🙂
      Just putting in my two cents! I enjoy when my dear brothers and sisters in Christ, share their position on Biblical topics and World Events, right here on WEB…where we learn so much with Brandon, already!

      Thanks for all that you do in God’s Service…and also allowing us to share with each other…Brandon! That’s special and very well appreciated!

      May God / Christ continue to bless, lead, guide, direct and touch, all those who love, seek and serve Him!
      HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Question #3, Violet.
    Brandon, part of your answer really jumped out at me. “There is a large amount of destruction taking place in the Middle East”.

    For many many years the people in the middle east have been saying they hate the west, they hate the US in particular. It has been reported by the media countless times they intend to destroy and take over the western countries and to convert them to muslim. But look at what is really happening. It is the middle east that is being destroyed. The people who spoke up against the west were just being used to destroy their own people. It appears all the media coverage of the past with all the threats against the west and a handful of false flag events was nothing more than a setup to create a war on the middle east, to justify a war and to disguise it so it does not appear to be a host of countries conquering other sovereign nations. They say it is a war on terrorism, not a war to conquer sovereign nations, but the terrorist just get stronger and one nation after another continue to fall. The fruits as God said, that is the truth. The fruits are the war is to destroy nations for world conquest, it is not against terrorists.

    But still, the muslim threat against the west is coming true. They have invaded the west and are tearing it down, destroying the fabric from which it was built. They are using immigration and refugees to do it, not armies with guns and tanks, they have moved in legally and are destroying the west from within. Already it is okay to be a muslim and wrong to be a Christian, even illegal in many and growing circumstances. Without a doubt muslims are favored over Christians and Christianity is being destroyed and the Christian nations along with it. The west has been invaded and we are being conquered.

    So the East is being destroyed at the same time the West is being destroyed and no one seems to notice what is happening. Both sides are being used as fools, one people against another until their is nothing left, then the kenite bankers who are behind it all move in and take over what is left. Out of chaos comes order. Those kenites have a very ingenious plan and are very smart people, I would not say they are wise since they have left God out of it, but they have smarts in a worldly way.
