The Harlot and the Woman in Rev. 12

Revelation 12 woman was not the Harlot. She may have been Israel or Mary. I cannot be dogmatic on this one. She delivered Jesus Christ, the Word, into the world.  The prophets died in Jerusalem. (Revelation18:24). The Harlot was likely Jerusalem.. Some say it is possible the Harlot of Revelation 17 is physical Rome. It destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD. But the Harlot killed the prophets. Jews killed the Jewish prophets as we see in Acts 7:52: "Was there ever a prophet your ancestors did not persecute? They even killed those who predicted the coming of the Righteous One. And now you have betrayed and murdered him--" I reject that it is Rome because the language of the prophets point to Jerusalem as being the harlot. Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 AD and was buried in 135 AD. This judgement was on ancient Judea, so far not on modern physical Israel!  Rome was the beast, not the harlot. Rome from Nero to the last emperor in Nero's line attacked Christians.  Keep in mind though th

Hell Is Terrifying

 This is from the internet. It is from a guy named Watkins from Grand Valley State University. I view Universities as being without the Spirit. University scholarship can inform us, but universities exist to make money. This peddling of the gospel is not authorized by God according to Paul. 2 Cor 2:17. So could the author be lost? It is quite possible. Do not sell the gospel! I want to mention that the Apostle Paul did not mention hell. But he did mention spiritual death. And in Revelation, the Second Death was eternal suffering. So when Paul mentioned death, that had to be what he meant. These scriptures  have been pulled together to show the serious frightening place of eternal abode of the unbelievers. Few are saved. Most are lost. This had no copyright.  So I am posting it to assist believers. Is the heat of the physical earth hell? I am not sure. The lake of fire will have to be big enough to contain the souls of maybe 50 billion people, all those who have lived on the earth witho

Jacob and Esau and Predestination

 Heb 12:16 See that no one is sexually immoral, or is godless like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest son. NIV  So we see that Esau was godless after all. This verifies that Paul was talking about predestination to eternal life in Romans chapter 9. He wasn't talking about just the positioning of blessings. He was talking about Jacob being chosen for eternal life and Esau being chosen for eternal damnation. Esau was hated from and for all eternity. This is a sobering reality. Many are called and few are chosen for eternal life.  We have had billions upon billions of human beings born since the beginning in Adam. Yet if a few million are saved that could prove to be a generous number!   I am telling you with Jewish DNA the truth like John the Baptist. Few are saved at this moment in history. The Gentiles have been called for 2000 years with many called. Luke 21:24  Now Jews and those with Jewish DNA are being called. Rom chapter 11. This is within t
