Hello John and Doves, I just want to stress how important it is not to be harsh against a brother/sister in Christ here at Doves when we don't agree. I suspect all our theology and interpretations will be changed before it's over. It's why they missed Him the first time " He's the carpenters son, He supposed to conquer the Romans and set up an everlasting kingdom, He comes from Egypt," and the list goes on and on.Here is a sample that I felt was a sharp attack on Ron Reese.So when He says:Mat 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.I believe him.
Ron Reese increases the number of days in the 2nd half to 1335 days.Jesus decreases the number of days in the 2nd half.Believe which ever one you want.
Lyle Cooper made a good point on the number of days not changing and Kieth your interpretation is not what the scripture says. It says the days will be shortened not the number of days. Revelation says we will be hit in water and on land by comets or asteroids and they are described as being large enough to easily speed up the rotation of our planet. It might only take 16 hrs or even 12 hrs instead of 24 hrs and the days would then be 16 hr days (surly shortened) thus keeping all scriptures in tact. I don't see Ron increasing the number of days and I see Jesus shortening the days.AgapeCharles Holler Sr
