Part 1- The 2300 days
The point of this study is to examine the prophetic time frame of the 2300 days in Daniel 8:13-14 and the 1290 days in Daniel 12:11. In so doing, it will show when and how that time period took place historically, of which stems from the chronological outline of the events involving the "little horn" Antiochus Epiphanes lV (AE-4).
It was he who raged against israel, as prophesied in Daniel chapters 8, 11 and 12, and shown to be fulfilled by the historical account, as recorded in the book of 1 Maccabees.
In Daniel 8:19, there is a terrible misunderstanding of when "the end" shall be. Many assume that "the end" being spoken of there, by Gabriel, is for the future, as being beyond our year of 2019,...
Ezekiel 38:4 KJV: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
Ezekiel 38:5 KJV: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
Ezekiel 38:6 KJV: Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
Notice all of Israels neighbors do not invade Israel in Ezekiel...
I found this to be an interesting few words in a book that spoke of what Christianity is NOT.
In 1611 A.D., King James of England authorized what became known as the Authorized Version, better known as the King James Version, of an English translation of the Bible. The "Christian religion" of that day was still engaged in competing belief-systems.
King James hired translators to translate the Bible into English. The word for "teaching" in the English language of King James' time was "doctrine." The King James Version refers to the word "doctrine" 56 different times. But languages evolve, and the meanings of words change. So it is with the word "doctrine." Looking at a contemporary English dictionary you will...
In Romans 11:34 Paul asks the question
"For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?"
Then in 1 Corinthians 2:16, he repeats the question
"For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ."
But now Paul says we have the mind of Christ, so what does that mean?
● John 13:35 . . By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you
love one another.
For many of us who grew up in dysfunctional families, broken homes, foster
systems, gangs, and/or orphanages et al; the concept of love doesn't
resonate in our thinking; viz: it just goes in one ear and right out the other
because we quite literally have no points of reference in our minds to aid
comprehending what Christ means by love. We know what Hollywood and
contemporary music mean by love, but we haven't a clue what Christ
This is why the epistles are so valuable-- many of them not only show
Christ's followers how to recognize love when they encounter it; but also
how to exemplify it in...
6:1 “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound?
6:2 - Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?”
6:6 “we should no longer be slaves of sin.”
6:11 “reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin”
6:12 “do not let sin reign in your mortal body,
that you should obey it in its lusts.”
6:13 “And do not present your members
as instruments of unrighteousness to sin”
6:14 “For sin shall not have dominion over you”
6:15 “What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not!”
Paul is rebuking these Roman believers because they are involved in habitual sin.
And that is what this chapter is all about.
He is giving them a dire...
Isaiah 27:4 (NASB)
"I have no wrath. Should someone give Me briars and thorns in battle, Then I would step on them, I would burn them completely.
Let us paraphrase this;
Though someone sins, I will punish and will burn and destroy them completely, yet I have no wrath.
God says; “He has no wrath.” ??
How can such a thing be? For scripture speaks greatly of the “wrath of God”
Than this begs the question what is the “wrath of God?”
That which is called in scripture the “wrath of God” is that thing that is experienced when something that is not perfect touches perfection.
When that man in the OT reached out to steady the Ark he instantly died for the wrath of God consumed him. Why?
Because it was the natural result of something...

Jeremiah 16:14-15 The days are coming, declares the Lord; when it will no longer be said: As surely as the Lord lives, Who brought the Israelites up out of Egypt, but it will be said: As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the Israelites [now; every faithful Christian] up out of the land of the north and out of all the countries where he had banished them. For I will restore them to the land I gave their ancestors.
This is referred to as the ‘Second Exodus‘ and does not only refer to the return of Jews to the Land of Israel after World War 2, but to the Return also of millions of re-identified Ten Tribers who have lost their identity among the nations where they were exiled for 2730 years. The immensity of...
