On the flip side there be true Prophets. 
How do you determine the true from false?

Hi Serenity
Thank you for your post the only answer I have is stick to the scriptures when people start going outside of scripture then its best to reject what they say we know that everything fro Genesis to revelations is from God and can be trusted .
An example the three wise men and their names aren't found in scripture they are the words of man and should be rejected.
Everything that comes after the amen in revelations should be discarded if it is not supported in the scriptures.

Love and peace
Dave

     See, I have told you beforehand.  So, if they say to you, ?Look, he is in the wilderness,? do not go out. If they say, ?Look, he is in the inner rooms,? do not believe it.  For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.  Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.
Matthew 24:25-‬28 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.24.25-28.ESV           


I think what our Lord is saying here is don't believe everything that men say and there are plenty out there giving different interpretations of scripture.

Just done a quick Google and got this

   30,000 Christian
Nearly all of the above large categories or denominations are further subdivided, to the point that there are more than 30,000 Christian organizations (groups, branches or denominations) worldwide, and more than 1,200 in the U.S. alone (see notes 1 and 3).20 Apr 2010           


So which one do we believe for myself I like to stick the the scriptures and not to go beyond the amen in revelations when our Lord returns everyone will know.
Not sure what the last line means anyone have any thoughts on it.

Love and Peace
Dave

     ?Immediately after   the tribulation of those days   the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and   the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
Matthew 24:29 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.24.29.ESV       


The first time these celestial bodies are mentioned is in Genesis on day 4 of creation I interpret these as the sun is Christ the light of the world the moon is his church the reflected light of the sun and the stars are the children of Christ and his church.
So in the end times they will not give there light and looking at the world today I think we can see this happening people are turning away from God in large numbers.
So let us pray thy kingdom come thy will be done.

Love and Peace
Dave

   Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.  And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
Matthew 24:30-‬31 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.24.30-31.ESV           


What will that sign be a cross may be we are not told but whatever it is everyone will see it and all those who do not believe will mourn and they will see our Lord coming on the clouds the same way he left the earth to return to heaven to sit at the righthand of the Father.
He left as the suffering servant he will return in power and glory as King of Kings and Lord of Lords let us pray for this day to come soon.
Then he will  send his angels to gather all those who belong to him those who have been chosen as was the prophets and apostles these are those who will sit on thrones with Christ to judge the world.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

    ?From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near.  So also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates.  Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.  Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
Matthew 24:32-‬35 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.24.32-35.ESV       


Although nobody knows when our Lord will return we are given the signs of the times which in many ways reminds us of the present times in lots of ways but its no good speculating what we do know is when he comes every eye will see him there will be no doubt so lets be sure we are ready to meet him.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

     50  Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

 51  Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

 52  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

 53  For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

 54  So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

 55  O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? note

 56  The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

 57  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

 58  Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord       


This wonderful prophecy of St Paul is a great encouragement to all believers especially those who are suffering persecution so let all believers take comfort in this wonderful prophecy.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Another wonderful prophecy from St Paul.

   But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.
Therefore encourage one another with these words.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-‬17 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/1th.4.13-17.ESV             


This is speaking of all those who sleep in Christ I like the thought of sleeping much nicer than being dead sleeping means we are alive in Christ and we will wake us when he returns.
Then we have those who are alive at his return we will be changed into spiritual beings because flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God.
And when this becomes reality we shall ever be with the Lord how wonderful will that be.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi

 2  That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

 3  Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

 4  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

 5  Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

 6  And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. note

 7  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

 8  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

 9  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

 10  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

 11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

 12  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness         


There is so much in this prophecy of saint Paul hard to know were to start maybe best to let it stand as he has given it to us the only thing I will say is that there are many things in this prophecy that can be applied to our times.

Love and Peace
Dave
