Unravelations - This Is Big

Image
Below is a link to a fairly short but action packed article that I found quite interesting. It was shared online in a Rev12 group and I believe it is worth some investigation from you guys.  One of his big points here is that if the model from Hosea 6:2 holds, we can expect the church age to be around 2,000 years long.  We are used to using day counts of 360 or 365 in these types of calculations, but you may remember that it was recently discovered how a portion of the Dead Sea Scrolls actually describes a 364 day calendar that was in use by certain Jews.  Here is the link for that: Newly Deciphered Dead Sea Scroll Reveals 364-Day Calendar
My first thought when I heard this was, "Why are you revealing this now, Lord?" As I pondered that, one obvious answer would be that the 364 day calendar could be the key that unlocks all these day counts people are putting together.

Maybe it is... and using that key bit of information the fellow on the site below makes a solid case as to …

Lastly, I just want to say that I believe God is using eve…

Colossians 3:2-4

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Philippians 3:20-21

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
