Th 5:2:For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will
come just like a thief in the night.
While they are saying, "Peace and safety!" then destruction will

believe that the Word Generation as it is use above, is referring to
the sons of the serpent, or us before we were born again. We are
being made anew or regenerated by taking refuge in our Lord and walking

So the LORD will spell out his message for them again, repeating
it over and over, a line at a time, in very simple words. Yet they
will stumble over this simple, straightforward message. They will be
injured, trapped, and captured.
Therefore, listen to this message from the LORD, you scoffing
rulers in Jerusalem.
You boast that you have struck a bargain to avoid death and have
made a deal to dodge the grave. You say, "The Assyrians can never touch

at the judgment, and shall condemn it because they repented at
the preaching of Jonah; and behold, something is greater than Jonah

realize that I have the power to release you or to crucify you?"
Then Jesus said, "You would have no power over me at all unless
it were given to you from above. So the one who brought me to you has

the flood. He obeyed God, who warned him about something that had never
happened before. By his faith he condemned the rest of the world
and was made right in God's sight.
ark is Jesus, the flood is the world and its systems. Anything not of
Christ is antichrist. Trust in Him to make a way, and not trust
in the world, He is in control, and the kingdoms of this world
are becoming His. He is telling us to be seperate from.the way the
world operates and He will strengthen us. walk upright and come up here
and I will receive you.)

The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he
was driven from men, and did eat
grass as oxen, and his body was
wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles'
feathers, and his nails like birds' claws.
And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine
eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned
