Great Sermon! The mark is a confusing subject. For instance we already have implants that people have now and in 2017 we are all going to be required to get the hand inplants (so say some news reports out of Washington)..so is that the mark of the beast or just an inplants that has nothing to do with this? And if it is the mark then our end time veiw would be wrong given that's only 3 years away and we would have already been raptured. Just makes you wonder how much faith or rather what kind of faith we have in our end time veiw. As for me, pre tribulation makes perfect sence and everything seems to fit, however my faith in that isn't the same as it is for salvation and knowing that God created all that is...so I won't be getting any implants just in case:)
Great Sermon! This is where people get confused. He has purchased 'us' from every tribe tongue and nation'we' will reign with him..is only found in kjv..not in esv nas or niv..kj tells us plainly that the rapture will accure before trib but that is not translated from westcott and hort. Unless you have the original Greek manuscript how do we know what it actually says? Is kjv correct in this according to the original manuscript ? Why does nettles and Allen and westcott and hort disagree here with the popular and generally accepted codex?
