Ok, guys. I am really going out on a limb and posting my first ever made-for-blog video. We spent some time with my favorite pastor and his family last week and I asked him if he would do an 'end-times video' with me and walk us through the prophetic events spoken of in the Bible.
This video might seem radical to you if you have never studied end times. I hope not. It is just simply looking at what the Bible says will happen and taking it for face-value.
I am a 'pre-trib' girl meaning that I believe 'the Church' (Christians) will get taken out of here before the time of tribulation begins. I studied line-by-line and verse-by-verse of Revelation over a period of about 2 years and feel most confident in a pre-trib stand on end times. I just wanted you to know where I am coming from in this video.
I hope you like it. I look like a big dork in it. Try and ignore that and the poor-quality video. We didn't rehearse (as you can tell). We just sat down and started talking. Now, after watching it, I wish we would have done a bunch of things differently (like make the board easier to read) but, oh well. I tried to upload it to youtube so the screen would be bigger but youtube said it is too long and I don't know how to divide it into parts.
I hope it answers some of your questions and that it will send you into the Bible to see if what we are talking about is even true. The book of Revelation is the only book in the Bible that contains a promise for the reader...
"Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near."
You will be blessed if you study Revelation! It is so exciting to have the confidence that we can have in the Word of God. To see so many prophecies being fulfilled and things happening just the way the Bible says they will! The Bible is trustworthy.
It is the lamp before our feet. And I am ashamed of how little I KNOW of this sacred Book. I am so inspired to dig in, study it, and memorize verses so I can constantly be thinking about them.
Mark and his wife, Tracy have been mentors to me since I gave my life to Christ. I lived with them for a while and shared a room with their (then) 2 year old. I slept in a toddler bed just to be near them to learn how to live the Christian life. I wish we lived closer to them. My ministry dream would be to serve at the Church where he is a pastor (www.calvaryknoxville.org). But God has placed us where He wants us and I am blessed here.
Enjoy the video. I am kind of nervous about it. Please tell me if you learn something!!!!
