"Jesus answered him, "The Scriptures say, 'It is not just bread that keeps people alive. Their lives depend on what God says.'"" Matthew 4:4 (ERV)
Welcome to a place to be encouraged and truly understand the Bible. We recommend starting with listening to the audio of The Greater Exodus; to glimpse the reality of Christ and the main theme of the Bible.
The crux of life is really to know God and know that He loves you. The Word of God says faith comes by hearing. We can read our Bibles to get to know God, we can study our Bibles, we can listen to others teach us who God is. Also we can talk to God and He listens to us and helps us.
The Bible can be hard to pick up at times, take comfort there is lots to learn and the word says we are perfected day by day. We don't need to know everything about the Bible to love God, love our neighbor and grow our relationship with the God. "For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven." Colossians 1:19-20 (KJV)
Life can be overwhelming and while the Bible doesn't address many topics of today's society it does bring comfort that things will always get better every day. While it might not seem like that for us personally or even globally, things really are better then they were 2,000 years ago. Certainly there are some that are still living lives like the first century believers however many today have comforts and joys never known in the past.
"Don't say, "Why were things better in the good old days?" It isn't wise to ask that kind of question." Ecclesiastes 7:10 (NIrV)
The above verse lets us know it's not wise to say yesterday was better then today. So keep faith that it will get better as a whole. We may be facing health problems whether physical or mental. Life is not easy. The important part is to not give up on yourself or your family. If you need to take a break take a break and refresh yourself. It may appear that no one cares or loves you or that you don't have the resources you need to succeed to the level you'd like. Have patience God works out all things for good for those who believe on Him. It will all work out whether you're in lack right now or abundance.
This section of the site talks about Full Preterism, which is the basic belief that Christ returned in 67AD and in judgment for 42 months with a consummation in 70AD with the destruction of the temple. Daniel talked about this consummation of the marriage.
"And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate." Daniel 9:27 (KJV)
When you die you will still be blessed and not have to experience the second death. We will have eternal life in Heaven with the Father, the Son Jesus, the Holy Spirit, Angels, His Creations and other believers where things will be beyond our imagination. The time line of the Resurrection.
Thank you for stopping by and spending time in the Word. You are valued. You are loved by God. We are thankful for you. Please go out and seize the day!
The full preterist view offers a lot more comfort then Christ returning in the future. You don't have to scare your kids that they are going to die in some return of Christ and the earth is going to be burned up and they could die at any minute. Yes sin will be around forever because we have free will, so from that aspect maybe you might not think it's better. However the end game when you pass away you still get to be with Christ. Also it's better because there is no ending to Christ kingdom. It continually grows; Isaiah 9:7. This is what the Bible teaches. It doesn't teach the earth is going to end and a limit to how many people get to live with God.
