The Last Days, Were The Last Days Of The Age Of The Law

The last days began on the day of Pentecost and ended when the temple was destroyed in 70AD, we are not in the last days.

In the world today there are many people that claim to be Christian that say, “we are in the last days, so the gospel needs to be preached to everyone on the planet, and then God will destroy the planet by fire”, that teaching doesn’t agree with the truth that is in the Greek New Testament.

The English New Testament comes from the Greek New Testament, if the English New Testament does not agree with what the Greek New Testament says, then it is not the truth. There are words in the English New Testament that have been translated wrong, and because of that wrong translation, people have been led to believe things that are false, that is the case with Matt 24:14, Titus 2:13 & 2 Peter 3:7.

In Acts 2:16-36 the Apostles start preaching the gospel to the Jews and then later in the book of Acts the gospel is preached to the Roman world, once the gospel was preached to the Roman world, the end of the age happened.

The term “last days” in the New Testament is referring to the time period between the time that the gospel was preached and the end of the age of the law.

Acts 2:16 – But [instead] this is [the beginning of] what was spoken through the prophet Joel:

Acts 2:17 – And it shall come to pass in the last days, God declares, that I will pour out of My Spirit upon all mankind [upon all who are chosen by God], and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy [telling forth the divine counsels] and your young men shall see visions (divinely granted appearances), and your old men shall dream [divinely suggested] dreams.

Acts 2:18 – Yes, and on My menservants also and on My maidservants in those days I will pour out of My Spirit, and they shall prophesy [telling forth the divine counsels and predicting future events pertaining especially to God’s kingdom].

Acts 2:19 – And I will show wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth beneath, blood and fire and smoking vapor;

Acts 2:20 – The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the obvious day of the Lord comes–that great and notable {and} conspicuous and renowned [day].

Acts 2:21 – And it shall be that whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord [invoking, adoring, and worshiping the Lord–Christ] shall be saved.

Acts 2:22 – You men of Israel, listen to what I have to say: Eashoa of Nazareth, a man accredited {and} pointed out {and} shown forth {and} commended {and} attested to you by God by the mighty works and [the power of performing] wonders and signs which God worked through him [right] in your midst, as you yourselves know–

Acts 2:23 – This Eashoa, when delivered up according to the definite {and} fixed purpose {and} settled plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified {and} put out of the way [killing him] by the hands of lawless {and} wicked men.

Acts 2:24 – [But] God raised him up, liberating him from the pangs of death, seeing that it was not possible for him to continue to be controlled {or} retained by it.

Acts 2:25 – For David says in regard to him, I saw the Lord constantly before me, for he is at my right hand that I may not be shaken {or} overthrown {or} cast down [from my secure and happy state].

Acts 2:26 – Therefore my heart rejoiced and my tongue exulted exceedingly; moreover, my flesh also will dwell in hope [will encamp, pitch its tent, and dwell in hope in anticipation of the resurrection].

Acts 2:27 – For You will not abandon my soul, leaving it helpless in Hades (the state of departed spirits), nor let Your holy One know decay {or} see destruction [of the body after death].

Acts 2:28 – You have made known to me the ways of life; You will enrapture me [diffusing my soul with joy] with {and} in Your presence.

Acts 2:29 – Brethren, it is permitted me to tell you confidently {and} with freedom concerning the patriarch David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day.

Acts 2:30 – Being however a prophet, and knowing that God had sealed to him with an oath that He would set one of his descendants on his throne, [II Sam. 7:12-16; Ps. 132:11.]

Acts 2:31 – He, foreseeing this, spoke [by foreknowledge] of the resurrection of the Christ (Eashoa the Messiah) that he was not deserted [in death] {and} left in Hades (the state of departed spirits), nor did his body know decay {or} see destruction.

Acts 2:32 – This Eashoa, God raised up, and of that all we [his disciples] are witnesses.

Acts 2:33 – Being therefore lifted high by {and} to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promised [blessing which is the] Holy Spirit, He has made this outpouring which you yourselves both see and hear.

Acts 2:34 – For David did not ascend into the heavens; yet he himself says, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at My right hand {and} share My throne.

Acts 2:35 – Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.

Acts 2:36 – Therefore let the whole house of Israel recognize beyond all doubt {and} acknowledge assuredly that God has made him both Lord and Christ (the Messiah)–this Eashoa whom you crucified.

The “day of the Lord” that is spoken of in Acts 2:20 is the Lord’s judgement that the Messiah said would happen after the tribulation that is mentioned in Matt 24:21, that judgement happened in 70AD after Jerusalem was destroyed.

The gospel had to be preached to the Jews and to the Roman world and then the end of the age would happen, that’s what Matthew 24:14 in the Greek text says. The age that ended is the age of the law, that age ended when the temple was destroyed in 70AD.

The last days began on the day of Pentecost and ended when the temple was destroyed in 70AD, we are not in the last days.

The gospel was preached to every creature under heaven by the time that the book of Colossians was written, that means that everything in Matt 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21:5-33 has already happened.

Matt 24:14 – And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the Roman world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end of the age come.

Col 1:23 – If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

In the world today there are many people that claim to be Christian that say, “we are in the last days, so the gospel needs to be preached to everyone on the planet, and then God will destroy the planet by fire”, that teaching doesn’t agree with the truth that is in the Greek New Testament.

The English New Testament comes from the Greek New Testament, if the English New Testament does not agree with what the Greek New Testament says, then it is not the truth. There are words in the English New Testament that have been translated wrong, and because of that wrong translation, people have been led to believe things that are false, that is the case with Matt 24:14, Titus 2:13 & 2 Peter 3:7.

Here is a link to my post that will show that the English New Testament translated Titus 2:13 wrong, and because of that wrong translation, people have been led to believe something false about that verse https://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/2014/08/29/the-english-bible-isnt-the-true-word-of-god/

We are not in the last days.

The teaching that says, “the day of the Lord is still to come” is false.
The teaching that says, “the tribulation is still to come” is false.
The teaching that says, “we are in the last days” is false.

The teaching that says, “the gospel has to be preached to everyone on the planet and then the planet will be destroyed” is false.

A Christian is someone that is led by the Holy Spirit, no one led by the Holy Spirit will ever say, “we are in the last days”, or say, “the gospel has to be preached to everyone on the planet, and then the planet will be destroyed by fire”, or say, “the tribulation and day of the Lord are still to come”, because that doesn’t agree with the truth that is written in the Bible. No one led by the Holy Spirit will ever say something that does not agree with the truth that is written in the Bible.

If someone claims to be Christian and says something that is not true, the person is not led by the Holy Spirit, the person is led by the flesh, those who are led by the flesh are not the children of God.

Romans 8:14 – For as many as are led by the Spirit of God [the Holy Spirit], they are the children of God.

In the world today there are many people that claim to be Christian that say it is ok for there to be different denominations in the church, that it is ok for a Christian to believe something different than what another Christian believes, but the Bible does not support different denominations in the church, 1 Corinthians 1:10 says that the church is supposed to believe the same thing.

1 Cor. 1:10 – But I urge {and} entreat you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Eashoa the Messiah, that all of you be in perfect harmony {and} full agreement in what you say, and that there be no dissensions {or} factions {or} divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in your common understanding and in your opinions {and} judgments.

Luke 21 proves the tribulation was the destruction of Jerusalem, here is a link to my posts that will show why a Christian believes the tribulation has already happenedhttps://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/category/a-christian-believes-the-tribulation-has-already-happened/

Matt 24 & Rev 12:9 are both talking about the Roman world, here is a link to my post that will show why Matt 24 & Rev 24 are talking about the Roman worldhttps://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/2014/09/17/matt-24-isnt-about-the-end-of-the-planet/

The Day Of The Lord that is spoken about in 2 Peter 3:7 happened after Jerusalem was destroyed, 2 Peter 3:7 is not talking about the planet being destroyed by fire, it’s talking about people being destroyed by fire, the ungodly people were destroyed by fire immediately after Jerusalem was destroyed, here is a link that will show why 2 Peter 3:7 is not talking about the planet being destroyed by firehttps://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/category/the-day-of-the-lord-has-already-happened/

The Day Of The Lord Has Already Happened

2 Pet 3:7 isn’t about the planet being destroyed by fire, it’s about people being destroyed by fire, after the nations (heathen world) destroyed Jerusalem, the ungodly people were destroyed by fire.

In 2 Peter 3:6, the Greek word for “world” is “kosmos”, “kosmos” means ” the world, universe; worldly affairs; the inhabitants of the world; adornment.”

Since Noah wasn’t killed in the flood, God didn’t destroy the planet, 2 Peter 3:6 isn’t saying God destroyed the planet in the flood, 2 Peter 3:6 is saying God destroyed the people in the flood, likewise 2 Peter 3:7 isn’t talking about the planet being destroyed by fire, 2 Peter 3:7 is talking about people being destroyed by fire, the “ungodly people” that are spoken of in 2 Peter 3:7 were destroyed by fire immediately after Jerusalem was destroyed. Jerusalem was destroyed in 70AD, “the day of the Lord” happened immediately after Jerusalem was destroyed (Matt 24:29-30).

2 Peter 3:6 is talking about the flood

2 Peter 3:6 – Through which the world [kosmos – the inhabitants of the world] that then [existed] was deluged with water and perished.

The words “heavens and earth” in 2 Peter 3:7 are referring to the world system, they are not referring to the planet. The ungodly people were the world system that God destroyed by fire, that world system was destroyed immediately after Jerusalem was destroyed in 70AD.

2 Peter 3:7 – But by the same word the present heavens and earth have been stored up (reserved) for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly people.

2 Peter 3:10 – But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will vanish (pass away) with a thunderous crash, and the [material] elements [of the universe] will be dissolved with fire, and the earth and the works that are upon it will be burned up.

2 Peter 3:10 is talking about the 2nd world system being destroyed, that happened immediately after Jerusalem was destroyed in 70AD, we do not live in the 2nd world system.

The day of the Lord that is written about in the New Testament has already happened.

We are in the 3rd world system, the time before the flood was the 1st world system, the time after the flood to the time to the day of the Lord was the 2nd world system, and the time after the day of the Lord to now is the 3rd world system, the Bible was not written for this time period.

We are not in the last days.

The teaching that says, “the day of the Lord hasn’t happen” is false.

The teaching that says, “we are in the last days” is false.

The teaching that says, “the gospel has to be preached to everyone on the planet and then the planet will be destroyed” is false.

Matt 24 talks about the tribulation, the tribulation happened when Jerusalem was destroyed, both Matt 24 & Rev 12:9 are talking about the Roman world, here is a link to my post about Matt 24 & Rev 12:9https://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/2014/09/17/matt-24-isnt-about-the-end-of-the-planet/

Luke 21 proves the tribulation happened when Jerusalem was destroyed, here is link to my post about Luke 21https://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/category/a-christian-believes-the-tribulation-has-already-happened/

The Kingdom of God is a spiritual kingdom, it is not a physical kingdomhttps://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/2014/08/21/the-kingdom-of-god/

Rev 11:2 Proves Revelation Was Written Before AD 70

Rev 11:2 Leave out the court which is outside the temple & don’t measure it, for it has been given to the nations; & they will tread under foot the holy city (Jerusalem) for 42 months. Rev 11:2 is talking about the destruction of Jerusalem before Jerusalem was destroyed, Rev 11:2 proves Revelation was written before AD 70. Jerusalem was destroyed in AD 70.

The teaching that says, “Revelation was written after AD 70″ doesn’t agree with Rev 11:2.

Rev 4:1 proves the truth that everything in Revelation hadn’t happened before Revelation was written, which means Revelation wasn’t written after the destruction of Jerusalem.

Rev 4:1  After these things I looked, and behold, a door {standing} open in heaven, and the first voice which I had heard, like {the sound} of a trumpet speaking with me, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things.”

Rev 11:1  A reed [as a measuring rod] was then given to me, [shaped] like a staff, and I was told: Rise up and measure the sanctuary of God and the altar [of incense], and [number] those who worship there.

Rev 11:2  But leave out of your measuring the court outside the sanctuary of God; omit that, for it is given over to the Nations, and they will trample the holy city [Jerusalem] underfoot for 42 months (three and one-half years).

Lk 21:6 & Lk 21:20 are talking about the destruction of Jerusalem. The “tribulation” that is spoken of in Matt 24:21 is the destruction of Jerusalem.

It took the Romans three and a half years to destroy Jerusalem.

Lk 21:6  As for all this that you [thoughtfully] look at, the time will come when there shall not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down.

Lk 21:20  But when you [the disciples] see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know {and} understand that her desolation has come near.

Matt 24:21  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be

Matt 24:34  Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.

The statement, “this generation will not pass until all these things take place” in Matt 24:34 is referring to the time period of the disciples, it is not referring to our time period, we are not that generation, we are not in the “last days”.

The truth is, Revelation was not written for this time period, Revelation was written to only seven churches in Asia that were alive during the time that Revelation was written (Rev 1:4 & Rev 1:11).

Rev 1:4  John to the seven churches which are in Asia

Rev 1:11 what you see, write in a book, and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.”

Everything that is written in Revelation was to happen quickly (Rev 1:1, Rev 22:10, Rev 22:12 & Rev 22:20).

Rev 1:1  The Revelation of Yeshua Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

Rev 22:10  “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near.”

Rev 22:12  “Behold, I [Christ] am coming quickly, and my reward {is} with me, to render to every man according to what he has done.”

Revelation was written before AD 70, that means that everything in Revelation has already happened.

Anyone that says Revelation is about this time period is adding to the book, Rev 22:18 is a warning to anyone that adds to the book.

Rev 22:18  I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book;

Rev 22:19  and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book.

Rev 22:20  He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly. Amen. Come, Lord Yeshua.

There is another verse in Revelation that proves Revelation was written before AD 70, that verse is Rev 1:7, here is a link to my post about Rev 1:7, this link will also lead to more links to my posts that will show that Matt 24:14 does not say the gospel has to be preached to everyone on the planet & then the planet will be destroyed, & that will show that we are not in the last days, & that will show that the tribulation & the day of the Lord has already happened https://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/2014/09/25/rev-17-proves-revelation-was-written-before-ad70/

All Who Live In Israel Aren’t God’s Chosen People

The land in the middle east called “Israel” isn’t Israel, Israel were a people long before 1948, Rom 9 confirms that truth, the book of Romans is said to have been written between AD 56-58.

In the world today there are many people that claim to be Christian that say, “those who live in Israel are God’s chosen people”, but that teaching doesn’t agree with what the Bible says.

Rom 9:6 – For they are not all Israel who are {descended} from Israel;

Rom 9:7 – Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.

Rom 9:8 – That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.

The fact that Israel became a nation in 1948 has nothing to do with any “end time” prophecy, Romans 9:6-8 proves Israel were a people long before 1948.

The Bible was not written for this time period, the “tribulation” that is spoken of in Matt 24:21 happened in 70AD when Jerusalem was destroyed, and the “day of the Lord” that is spoken of in 2 Peter 3:7 happened immediately after Jerusalem was destroyed.

We are not in the end times.

A Christian is someone that is led by the Holy Spirit, no one led by the Holy Spirit will ever say, “All who live in Israel are God’s chosen people ”, because that doesn’t agree with the Bible. No one led by the Holy Spirit will ever say something that doesn’t agree with the Bible.

If someone claims to be Christian and says something that doesn’t agree with the Bible, the person is not led by the Holy Spirit, the person is led by the flesh, those who are led by the flesh are not the children of God.

Romans 8:14 – For as many as are led by the Spirit of God [the Holy Spirit], they are the children of God.

In the world today there are many people that claim to be Christian that say it is ok for there to be different denominations in the church, that it is ok for a Christian to believe something different than what another Christian believes, but the Bible does not support different denominations in the church, 1 Corinthians 1:10 says that the church is supposed to believe the same thing.

1 Cor. 1:10 – But I urge {and} entreat you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, that all of you be in perfect harmony {and} full agreement in what you say, and that there be no dissensions {or} factions {or} divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in your common understanding and in your opinions {and} judgments.

The teaching that says, “we are in the last days” is false.
The teaching that says, “the tribulation is still to come” is false.
The teaching that says, “Revelation is about the world today” is false.
The teaching that says, “the day of the Lord is still to come” is false.
The teaching that says, “the gospel has to be preached to everyone in the world, and then the planet will be destroyed” is false.

Matt 24 talks about the tribulation, the tribulation happened when Jerusalem was destroyed, both Matt 24 & Rev 12:9 are talking about the Roman world, here is a link to my post about Matt 24 & Rev 12:9 https://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/2014/09/17/matt-24-isnt-about-the-end-of-the-planet/

Rev 1:7 Proves Revelation Was Written Before AD70

Rev 1:1  [This is] the revelation of Eashoa the Christ [his unveiling of the divine mysteries]. God gave it to him to disclose {and} make known to his bond servants certain things which must shortly {and} speedily come to pass in their entirety. And he sent and communicated it through his angel (messenger) to his bond servant John,

Rev 1:2  Who has testified to {and} vouched for all that he saw [in his visions], the word of God and the testimony of Eashoa the Messiah (the Christ).

Rev 1:3  Blessed (happy, to be envied) is the man who reads aloud [in the seven assemblies] the word of this prophecy; and blessed (happy, to be envied) are those who hear [it read] and who keep themselves true to the things which are written in it [heeding them and laying them to heart], for the time [for them to be fulfilled] is near.

Rev 1:4  John to the seven assemblies (churches) that are in Asia: May grace (God’s unmerited favor) be granted to you and spiritual peace (the peace of the Christ’s kingdom) from Him [God] Who is and Who was and Who is to come, and from the seven Spirits [the sevenfold Holy Spirit] before His throne,

Rev 1:5  And from Eashoa the Christ the faithful {and} trustworthy Witness, the Firstborn of the dead [first to be brought back to life] and the Prince (Ruler) of the kings of the earth. To him who ever loves us and has once [for all] loosed {and} freed us from our sins by his own blood,

Rev 1:6  And formed us into a kingdom (a royal race), priests to his God and Father–to him be the glory and the power {and} the majesty and the dominion throughout the ages {and} forever and ever. Amen (so be it).

In the first 6 verses of Revelation Chapter 1, we can see, number one, from the first verse the Christ is not God.

Number two, the things that are written in Revelation are to happen quickly (Rev 1:1).

Number 3, the time is near for the things to happen that are written in Revelation (Rev 1:3).

Number four, Revelation is addressed to only seven churches in Asia who were alive during the time that Revelation was written (Rev 1:4).

Rev 1:7  Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him; and all the tribes of the earth shall gaze upon him {and} beat their breasts {and} mourn {and} lament over him. Even so [must it be]. Amen (so be it).

The statement “he is coming with the clouds” in Rev 1:7 is referring to the day of the Lord, the day of the Lord is the Lord’s judgement upon the ungodly people that are spoken of in 2 Pet 3:7.

The day of the Lord happened after Jerusalem was destroyed. Rev 1:7 says what the Christ says in Matt 24:30. Matt 24:29-30 is talking about the day of the Lord.

The “tribulation” that is spoken of in Matt 24:29 is the destruction of Jerusalem, Jerusalem was destroyed in AD70.

Matt 24:29  Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not shed its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

Matt 24:30  Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn {and} beat their breasts {and} lament in anguish, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory [in brilliancy and splendor].

In Matt 24:29-30 the Christ uses words that he knows the disciples will understand that describe judgement that come from the Old Testament, in Matt 24:29-30 the Christ is not talking about the end of the planet, here is a link to my post about Matt 24:29-30 that will show why Matt 24:29-30 are not talking about the end of the planet https://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/category/matthew-2429-30/

Many people say Rev 1:8 is talking about the Christ, but it is made very clear by what John says in Rev 1:4 about God, that Rev 1:8 is talking about God, not the Christ.

Rev 1:8  I am the Alpha and the Omega, {the Beginning and the End,} says the Lord God, He Who is and Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty (the Ruler of all).

Rev 1:9  I, John, your brother and companion (sharer and participator) with you in the tribulation and kingdom and patient endurance [which are] in Eashoa {the Christ,} was on the isle called Patmos, [banished] on account of [my witnessing to] the Word of God and the testimony (the proof, the evidence) for Eashoa {the Christ.}

Rev 1:10  I was in the Spirit [rapt in His power] on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a great voice like the calling of a war trumpet,

Rev 1:11  Saying, {I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last.} Write promptly what you see (your vision) in a book and send it to the seven churches {which are in Asia}–to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.

Rev 1:11, once again makes it very clear that Revelation is addressed to only seven churches in Asia that were alive during the time that Revelation was written, so whatever is written in Revelation applies only to the seven churches.

Rev 1:12  Then I turned to see [whose was] the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands,

Rev 1:13  And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

Rev 1:14  His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;

Rev 1:15  And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

Rev 1:16  And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.

Rev 1:17  And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:

Rev 1:18  I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Rev 1:19  Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;

Rev 1:20  The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

There is another verse in Revelation that proves Revelation was written before AD70, that verse is Rev 7:14, here is a link to my post that will explain more https://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/category/revelation-was-written-before-70ad/

The Day Of The Lord that is spoken about in 2 Peter 3:7 happened after Jerusalem was destroyed, 2 Pet 3:7 is not talking about the planet being destroyed by fire, 2 Pet 3:7 is talking about people being destroyed by fire, the ungodly people were destroyed by fire immediately after Jerusalem was destroyed, here is a link that will show why 2 Pet 3:7 is not talking about the planet being destroyed by fire https://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/category/the-day-of-the-lord-has-already-happened/

Rev 3:20 Is A Word Only For The Church Of Laodicea

In Rev 3:20 Christ is speaking to the church of Laodicea, therefore Rev 3:20 is a word only for the church (the group of people) in Laodicea that were alive when Revelation was written.

If a book is addressed to you, then that book is only for you, Revelation is addressed to only 7 churches (groups of people)  in Asia that were alive during the time that Revelation was written, therefore Revelation is not about this time period.

Rev. 1:1  [This is] the revelation of Yeshua the Messiah [his unveiling of the divine mysteries]. God gave it to him to disclose {and} make known to his bond servants certain things which must shortly {and} speedily come to pass in their entirety. And he sent and communicated it through his angel (messenger) to his bond servant John,

Rev. 1:4  John to the seven assemblies (churches) that are in Asia:

Rev. 1:11  Write promptly what you see (your vision) in a book and send it to the seven churches {which are in Asia}–to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.

The New Testament makes it very clear that no one can come to Christ unless God makes it happen.

Jn. 6:65  No one can come to me unless it has been granted from God.

In Rev 3 Christ is speaking to the church of Laodicea, Christ is not speaking to people that don’t believe in him, therefore Rev 3:20 is a word only to the church (the group of people) in Laodicea.

Rev. 3:19  As many as I love [the church], I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Rev. 3:20  Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man [in the church of Laodicea] hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Rev 3:20 is only a word for the church of Laodicea, to use that verse to say that it is talking to people today, is using that verse completely out of context, to say anything in Revelation is talking about the world today, is using the book out of context and is adding to the book, Rev 22:18 is a warning to anyone that adds to the book.

Rev. 22:10  And he [the angel (messenger) [further] told me, Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book {and} make no secret of them, for the time when things are brought to a crisis {and} the period of their fulfillment is near.

Rev. 22:16  I, Yeshua, have sent my messenger (angel) to you to witness {and} to give you assurance of these things for the churches (assemblies) [the 7 churches].

Rev. 22:18  I [personally solemnly] warn everyone who listens to the statements of the prophecy [the predictions and the consolations and admonitions pertaining to them] in this book: If anyone shall add anything to them, God will add {and} lay upon him the plagues (the afflictions and the calamities) that are recorded {and} described in this book.

Rev. 22:19  And if anyone cancels {or} takes away from the statements of the book of this prophecy [these predictions relating to Christ’s kingdom and its speedy triumph, together with the consolations and admonitions or warnings pertaining to them], God will cancel {and} take away from him his share in the book of life and in the city of holiness (purity and hallowedness), which are described {and} promised in this book.

Rev. 22:20  He Who gives this warning {and} affirms {and} testifies to these things says, Yes (it is true). [Surely] I am coming quickly (swiftly, speedily). Amen (so let it be)! Yes, come, Lord Yeshua!

The “tribulation” that is spoken of in Matt 24:21 happened when Jerusalem was destroyed, Jerusalem was destroyed in 70AD by the Romans. There is a verse in Revelation that proves Revelation was written before 70AD, that verse is Rev 7:14, here is a link to my post that will explain more https://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/category/revelation-was-written-before-70ad/

The Last Days, Were The Last Days Of The Age Of The Law

The last days began on the day of Pentecost and ended when the temple was destroyed in 70AD, we are not in the last days.

In the world today there are many people that claim to be Christian that say, “we are in the last days, so the gospel needs to be preached to everyone on the planet, and then God will destroy the planet by fire”, that teaching doesn’t agree with the truth that is in the Greek New Testament.

The English New Testament comes from the Greek New Testament, if the English New Testament does not agree with what the Greek New Testament says, then it is not the truth. There are words in the English New Testament that have been translated wrong, and because of that wrong translation, people have been led to believe things that are false, that is the case with Matt 24:14, Titus 2:13 & 2 Peter 3:7.

In Acts 2:16-36 the Apostles start preaching the gospel to the Jews and then later in the book of Acts the gospel is preached to the Roman world, once the gospel was preached to the Roman world, the end of the age happened.

The term “last days” in the New Testament is referring to the time period between the time that the gospel was preached and the end of the age of the law.

Acts 2:16 – But [instead] this is [the beginning of] what was spoken through the prophet Joel:

Acts 2:17 – And it shall come to pass in the last days, God declares, that I will pour out of My Spirit upon all mankind [upon all who are chosen by God], and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy [telling forth the divine counsels] and your young men shall see visions (divinely granted appearances), and your old men shall dream [divinely suggested] dreams.

Acts 2:18 – Yes, and on My menservants also and on My maidservants in those days I will pour out of My Spirit, and they shall prophesy [telling forth the divine counsels and predicting future events pertaining especially to God’s kingdom].

Acts 2:19 – And I will show wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth beneath, blood and fire and smoking vapor;

Acts 2:20 – The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the obvious day of the Lord comes–that great and notable {and} conspicuous and renowned [day].

Acts 2:21 – And it shall be that whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord [invoking, adoring, and worshiping the Lord–Christ] shall be saved.

Acts 2:22 – You men of Israel, listen to what I have to say: Yeshua of Nazareth, a man accredited {and} pointed out {and} shown forth {and} commended {and} attested to you by God by the mighty works and [the power of performing] wonders and signs which God worked through him [right] in your midst, as you yourselves know–

Acts 2:23 – This Yeshua, when delivered up according to the definite {and} fixed purpose {and} settled plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified {and} put out of the way [killing him] by the hands of lawless {and} wicked men.

Acts 2:24 – [But] God raised him up, liberating him from the pangs of death, seeing that it was not possible for him to continue to be controlled {or} retained by it.

Acts 2:25 – For David says in regard to him, I saw the Lord constantly before me, for he is at my right hand that I may not be shaken {or} overthrown {or} cast down [from my secure and happy state].

Acts 2:26 – Therefore my heart rejoiced and my tongue exulted exceedingly; moreover, my flesh also will dwell in hope [will encamp, pitch its tent, and dwell in hope in anticipation of the resurrection].

Acts 2:27 – For You will not abandon my soul, leaving it helpless in Hades (the state of departed spirits), nor let Your holy One know decay {or} see destruction [of the body after death].

Acts 2:28 – You have made known to me the ways of life; You will enrapture me [diffusing my soul with joy] with {and} in Your presence.

Acts 2:29 – Brethren, it is permitted me to tell you confidently {and} with freedom concerning the patriarch David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day.

Acts 2:30 – Being however a prophet, and knowing that God had sealed to him with an oath that He would set one of his descendants on his throne, [II Sam. 7:12-16; Ps. 132:11.]

Acts 2:31 – He, foreseeing this, spoke [by foreknowledge] of the resurrection of the Christ (the Messiah) that he was not deserted [in death] {and} left in Hades (the state of departed spirits), nor did his body know decay {or} see destruction.

Acts 2:32 – This Yeshua, God raised up, and of that all we [his disciples] are witnesses.

Acts 2:33 – Being therefore lifted high by {and} to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promised [blessing which is the] Holy Spirit, He has made this outpouring which you yourselves both see and hear.

Acts 2:34 – For David did not ascend into the heavens; yet he himself says, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at My right hand {and} share My throne.

Acts 2:35 – Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.

Acts 2:36 – Therefore let the whole house of Israel recognize beyond all doubt {and} acknowledge assuredly that God has made him both Lord and Christ (the Messiah)–this Yeshua whom you crucified.

The “day of the Lord” that is spoken of in Acts 2:20 is the Lord’s judgement that the Messiah said would happen after the tribulation that is mentioned in Matt 24:21, that judgement happened in 70AD after Jerusalem was destroyed.

The gospel had to be preached to the Jews and to the Roman world and then the end of the age would happen, that’s what Matthew 24:14 in the Greek text says. The age that ended is the age of the law, that age ended when the temple was destroyed in 70AD.

The last days began on the day of Pentecost and ended when the temple was destroyed in 70AD, we are not in the last days.

The gospel was preached to every creature under heaven by the time that the book of Colossians was written, that means that everything in Matt 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21:5-33 has already happened.

Matt 24:14 – And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the Roman world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end of the age come.

Col 1:23 – If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

In the world today there are many people that claim to be Christian that say, “we are in the last days, so the gospel needs to be preached to everyone on the planet, and then God will destroy the planet by fire”, that teaching doesn’t agree with the truth that is in the Greek New Testament.

The English New Testament comes from the Greek New Testament, if the English New Testament does not agree with what the Greek New Testament says, then it is not the truth. There are words in the English New Testament that have been translated wrong, and because of that wrong translation, people have been led to believe things that are false, that is the case with Matt 24:14, Titus 2:13 & 2 Peter 3:7.

Here is a link to my post that will show that the English New Testament translated Titus 2:13 wrong, and because of that wrong translation, people have been led to believe something false about that verse  https://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/2014/08/29/the-english-bible-isnt-the-true-word-of-god/

We are not in the last days.

The teaching that says, “the day of the Lord is still to come” is false.
The teaching that says, “the tribulation is still to come” is false.
The teaching that says, “we are in the last days” is false.

The teaching that says, “the gospel has to be preached to everyone on the planet and then the planet will be destroyed” is false.

A Christian is someone that is led by the Holy Spirit, no one led by the Holy Spirit will ever say, “we are in the last days”, or say, “the gospel has to be preached to everyone on the planet, and then the planet will be destroyed by fire”, or say, “the tribulation and day of the Lord are still to come”, because that doesn’t agree with the truth that is written in the Bible. No one led by the Holy Spirit will ever say something that does not agree with the truth that is written in the Bible.

If someone claims to be Christian and says something that is not true, the person is not led by the Holy Spirit, the person is led by the flesh, those who are led by the flesh are not the children of God.

Romans 8:14 – For as many as are led by the Spirit of God [the Holy Spirit], they are the children of God.

In the world today there are many people that claim to be Christian that say it is ok for there to be different denominations in the church, that it is ok for a Christian to believe something different than what another Christian believes, but the Bible does not support different denominations in the church, 1 Corinthians 1:10 says that the church is supposed to believe the same thing.

1 Cor. 1:10 – But I urge {and} entreat you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, that all of you be in perfect harmony {and} full agreement in what you say, and that there be no dissensions {or} factions {or} divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in your common understanding and in your opinions {and} judgments.
