I think 'sitting' means the same in the biblical passage as it does now, in our day.

Why not Preterism? To respond to this question-Context is the key. Since the "Drying up of the River Euphrates"(Rev. 16:2) occurs as the 6th vial(bowl judgment) is poured out, which was only after the Lamb was given the ability to open the book and loose the seals(Rev. 5), which only happens after John is sent to Patmos(92-95AD) which is significantly ...

Revelation 11:4 is a reference to the Old Testament. So he said, “These are the two who are anointed to serve the Lord of all the earth.” Zechariah 4:14 Very clearly, in both of these references, this is speaking of God Himself.

I like how Matthew Henry's commentary identifies John 12:31 as Christ saying this statement in a triumphant manner. Now is the judgment.

The opening of the Seventh Seal should be placed at the end of chapter 7, not at the beginning of chapter 8. The 6th Seal and the 6th Trumpet begin the Day of the Lord. After the 6th Seal events, the Rapture/Resurrection occurs, the gathering of the elect (see Matthew 24), and seeing the sign of the Son of Man in the sky, the Beast and his armies gather for ...

Having researched and discussed this verse in depth a few years ago for 4-5 months, I would say yes, that is exactly what the verse is saying, though many are far too quick to reach for an alternate reading. In order to properly understand this verse, a few things need to be understood... First, when we look to the lexical field (or sometimes called the ...

Generally put by pre-millenialists, the last trumpet occurs at the beginning of the millennium. in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 1 Cor 15:52 This would be, by pre-millennialists, the first resurrection, or the believers ...

The pre-trib position usually holds that the Rapture is at the beginning of the Tribulation, and the passage above, the second Advent, at the last trumpet, is at the end of the 7 years, bringing an end to the Tribulation. Thus, 2 Thes 2, destroying the antichrist with the glory of His appearing. Thus, the rapture and and the Second Advent, above, are ...

Here's a way out theory. Would love to hear your feedback. According to the bible Heaven is a place where the streets are paved with gold with 12 gates of pearl. According to Sumerian texts the Annunaki are based on planet X and enters our orbit every 26000. The Annunaki were in search of gold for their planet (or heaven). They 'discovered' the gold deposits ...
