I started this group for those who TRULY love God?. Many SAY they do? but their actions are different. John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. If you TRULY LOVE GOD then why do you: Not keep the Sabbath ( Curse, Are Selfish, mean, jealous, listen to music that Jesus wouldn't listen to? To sum it all up WE should all act like Jesus. Read your Bible everyday to learn how to have a pure heart. Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. So if you TRULY love GOD join in!

Revelation 6
______________________________ ______________________________ ________________
Revelation 6:12-13 John gives us three signs to watch for at the close of the Dark Ages:
______________________________ ______________________________ ___________________
1. A GREAT earthquake -Nov. 1, 1755 - Lisbon earthquake -The effects of this earthquake was felt from Scandinavia in N Africa in the south; from Europe to the Caribbean and even new foundland.It is still on record as one of the most significant earthquakes of all time.

______________________________ ______________________________ _________________________
2. The sun darkens and the moon turns to blood. The great Dark Day of May. in 1780. The sky turned black in the middle of the day and it became so dark outside that the animals came home and people were forced to suspend their regular business. People could not see their hands right in front of their face. History reported the moon was red as blood the very next day.

______________________________ ______________________________ ______________________________ ________
3.The stars fell from heaven. The Leonid meteor shower made it's most spectacular showing in history on 11/13/1833. Contemporary astronomers compared the frequency of falling stars to taht of a terrible snow storm. As many as 200,000 falling stars per hour shot scross the sky,causing such a disturbance, by 2 am people were getting out of bed to see where all the light was coming from. Abraham Lincoln even thought it was the day of judgment.

______________________________ ______________________________ ___________________________
All 3 events were of an incredible magnitude that commanded a great deal of attention. They made a vey deep impression on those who saw them, even resulting in conversions.
______________________________ ______________________________ __________________________-
These events took place in exact order as they are mentioned in the Bible prophecy. 1st an earthquake, 2nd the darkday, then a blood-red moon, and finally the falling of the stars.
______________________________ ______________________________ ______________________________ __________

The next event in Revelation 6, is the day of the Lord and the return of Jesus Christ. We are now living between the 13th and 14th verses of this incredible prophecy.
______________________________ ______________________________ ______________________________ ______
Revelation 6:14 -17; 8:1 - We must make no mistakes about it. Jesus really will return. One day, heaven really will fall silent as Jesus returns with all of His angels (compare with Matthew 25:31). On that day, only one question will be important: " Who shall be able to stand?" You have a choice. Nobody has to be caught unprepared when Christ comes. You don't have to dread the day He comes back. You can be ready - you can greet Him like you would a longtime friend. All you need to do is begin building that friendship now!




Rev. 14:18 says: "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."

In Matthew Henry's Commentary, Vol. III, p. 1065, note on Rev. 13:18, as to the practice of representing names by numbers, he says: "It was a method practiced among the ancients, to denote names by numbers."

Latin is the official language of the Catholic Church. The pope, in Catholic theology, stands for the whole church. One of his titles is said to be Vicarius Filii Dei, "Vicar of the Son of God." This has been verified in their own literature. (Our Sunday Visitor, Apr. 18, 1915) This title has been said to be on the triple tiara that is used for the coronation of the pope. But more convincing evidence is taken from the first page of Pope John Paul II's book, "Crossing the Threshold of Hope" where he says himself that the "Vicar of Christ" is the title of the pope.

Taking the letters out of this title which are used as Roman numerals, we have V, 5; I, 1; C, 100; I, 1; The rest of the letters had a value of zero. (Originally, in Latin there was no U. The V was always used where we would now put a U). V, 5, I, 1, C,100, U, 5; I, 1; L, 50; I, 1; I, 1; D, 500; I, 1. Adding these numbers together, we have 666.

The fact that the title Vicarius Filii Dei equals 666 in numerical values is not a conclusive proof that the pope is the antichrist since there are many other names that might coincidentally add up to 666. However, it is interesting that the pope's title does fulfill this criterion, along with all of the following identifying points:

A serious study of the biblical description of antichrist will show:

1. It will rise to be a great power after the fall of the pagan Roman empire (after 476 A.D.), (Daniel 7:7, 8)
2. It will be a geographically small nation ("little horn") (Daniel 7:8)
3. It will rule over many people, nations and tongues (it will be universal) (Revelation 17:15)
4. It will be headquartered in the city of seven hills (Rome is located on seven hills.) (Revelation 17:9)
5. It will be a religio-political entity--a political city-state that is ruled by a priest-king. (Revelation 17:3--A beast symbolizes political power, and a woman symbolizes a religious power)
6. Its priest-king will make great and blasphemous claims. (Daniel 7:25)
7. It will claim authority over all kings (Revelation 14:8)
8. It will claim to have power to change the times and laws God set as its mark of authority. (Daniel 7:25).
9. It will be an apostate church that makes the nations drink her cup of apostate doctrine. (Revelation 17:4)
10. It will be a "mother" church with apostate daughters coming from her. (Revelation 17:5)
11. It will be a persecuting power, killing the faithful saints of Jesus Christ as heretics. (Revelation 17:6)
12. It will hold power and authority for 1260 years following the fall of pagan Rome. (Daniel 7:25).
13. It will suffer a deadly wound that will end 1260 years of dominance and persecution, and when it is revived after the deadly wound all the world will wonder at its revival. (Revelation 13:3)

Please understand that it is the system and teachings that we see as defective, and that nothing we say here is directed towards the Catholic members themselves.



****************************** Caller: Pastor Doug, can you explain to me Revelation 17:12?

****************************** ****Pastor Doug: Revelation 17:12.

*****Caller: 17:12

****************************** ***********Pastor Doug: Ok. I?d like to invite our callers, if you?ve got your Bibles, if you?re driving in your truck, I?ll read it for you: ?And the ten horns which you sawest are ten kings that have received no kingdom as yet, but received power as kings one hour with the beast.?

Now Revelation 17 ? to jump right into this ? I probably ought to give a little background: Revelation 17 begins by describing a woman sitting upon a scarlet-colored beast and the beast has got seven heads and ten horns. And later it tells us the seven heads, in the same chapter, are the seven mountains on which the woman sits.

This woman represents Babylon, the mother of harlots, false religion or apostate Christianity. Seven heads it says are seven mountains. It?s a church that sits among seven hills. And then it says ten horns. These ten horns are the ten divisions of the Roman Empire that represent the nations of the world today. Just like in Daniel chapter 2, the last part of that, you?ve got the ten toes of the image ?you?ve got the ten divisions of that Empire.

Then it said there in verse 12 again, ??the ten horns you saw are ten kings.? Now the word kings there means kings or kingdoms ? we can get this from Daniel 7 ? ??which have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive power as kings one hour with the beast.? Evidently, there?s going to be a short time Dennis, near the end of time ? and I think this is a prophecy that is speaking in a special way of the end of time ? where this beast power is going to allow these different nations to have authority as long as they direct their people and the worship back to this religious institution that?s going to be formed; but it?s temporary.

You read on then in Revelation 18 and it talks about the fall of Babylon and these other kings of the earth are bewailing and lamenting her destruction. So for a brief period of time just before the plagues are poured out, the divisions of the Roman Empire are going to once again direct their authority back to the beast.

We have a lesson Dennis that goes into this in great detail that will do a much more thorough job than I have time for on the program. Would you like us to send you that?

****************************** *************************Calle r: Sure. Not a problem. That?ll be good.

****************************** ***Pastor Doug: All you?ve got to do is make a phone call. I can?t do that for you. Call our resource number, there are operators that are waiting, it?s 800-835-6747; and I think you want to ask for the lesson on ? one we?ve called The Mark of the Beast. The other is called America in Prophecy. These are advanced study guides, very serious material. You tell them you?re listening to Bible Answers Live/Amazing Facts and they?ll send that to you.

****************************** *************Caller: Ok that?ll be good. Now when this speaks of one hour with the beast, taking a day for a year in prophetic time ?

****************************** ****Pastor Doug: ?that would be 15 days. By going by Jewish year, 360 days in the Jewish year, 1/24th of 360 is 15.

****************************** **Caller: Fifteen, now is this 15 days, that goes back to 15, no that can?t be ? that would be actual days.

****************************** ****Pastor Doug: I think it might be actual days.

****************************** ****Caller: Yup so that?s a short time. Ok that explains it. Thank you.

***************************Pas tor Doug: All right thank you very much.

****************************** ************************Co-Hos t: Thanks for the call Dennis. Again that resource line number is 800-835-6747. For anyone who would like those lessons, call and tell them you?re listening to Bible Answers Live. That?s 800-835-6747.
