Well, if Jesus tarries longer than we think... our family will, Lord willing, be welcoming a new baby into our home in mid-December! This puts me in a funny position of longing for Jesus yet also hoping I get to meet this little one
The Lord has been gracious to give me this gift of pregnancy though. I'm forced to do something other than study all day... we need to switch our school room and bedrooms around and clean out closets. I need to get the almost 3 year old out of my bed and get him a bed of his own. I've been putting it off because I thought it didn't matter. Who has time to build Ikea furniture when there are prophecies to uncover?!? And I need to get back to eating well like I used to and get back to studying homeopathy again. I realized today that I have really missed these things since I've been thinking that they really didn't matter any more. But as my husband said... Jesus may or may not come within the next 9 months, but Lord willing we know the baby will be here. So I feel like I have a bit of normal life back, and for that alone I'm grateful. And if I'm here to see this baby, that would be kinda cool too. Even so come Lord Jesus!
How are y'all managing the combo of watching and also maintaining the joys of regular life? It is not an easy task! It's only with this new news that I realized how far I had sunken. I am grateful for this new burst of purpose outside of being a watchman.

"I know, right?!?!" as my second daughter likes to say!
Congratulations, witness1 !! Babies are such a blessing. My first, and so far only, grandchild is now 20 months old. Six months ago I was a little worried. His father says he is atheist, but I think it is that he just 'doesn't know', as he said he would be willing to go to church with my daughter if she went, because she wants her son to grow up with God in his life. Six months ago I thought we might be leaving and that, even though I know I am not the judge of who departs and who doesn't, my grandson's father would be left behind. I prayed hard(still do) that my faith would be sufficient to bring all my children and their SO's and my grandson along on this coming glorious event. I have yet to find anything in the Word that says that's possible.
"This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you." John 15:12
That is so hard stormyknight! I understand the thought of pleading with God to save our loved ones and wishing we could transfer our faith to them. I don't think that your faith alone will bring anyone into heaven with you, but God does say some mysterious things about how our faith affects our children and future generations. I will be praying that the Lord will begin to speak to your grandson's father and that the Lord will send just the right person into his life to speak truth to him, whether it is you or someone else. We know our Lord does not wish that anyone should perish!
EnochWalked: www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-53770859 'Israel will also "suspend declaring sovereignty over areas outlined" in President Trump's Vision for Peace between Israel and the Palestinians'.

EnochWalked: 'The UAE, he said, sees this as "a stoppage of the annexation, not a suspension".' Does that mean Israel are giving up not just on the areas reserved for the Palestinians, but also the areas that Trump offered Israel? Is this the real covenant with many?

EnochWalked: Let's see if "Emmanuel"'s 10 nation army will start attacking the forces of the would-be Sultan of the new Ottoman Empire, whose eyes are on Jerusalem. At the rate things are intensifying, this year could really go out with a bang.

EnochWalked: when asked how long Israel had agreed to suspend its West Bank annexation plans as part of a normalization deal with the United Arab Emirates." Presumably the ink won't try until after November, or January then.

EnochWalked: "and in the midst of the week he causeth sacrifice and present to cease" (Young's Literal Translation). Does "sacrifice and present" sound like the give and take of a trade or deal? Could 2020 be the middle of a set of 7 years, starting in 2017?

EnochWalked: "and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate." (KJV) Could the desolation be lockdown and is "that determined" a vaccine "poured upon the desolate"?

JamesVa: Interesting that they call it the Abraham Accord. There is only one Accord with Abraham that god recognized, and the land belongs to Israel. Makes you wonder about the choice of name...

Boymaker2: EW, Brenda Weltner also thinks sweets in the Trib from Detroit 2017.

Boymaker2: Wow. Fat fingers type word salad.

Boymaker2: Brenda has the end already on schedule from the Rev 12 sign
Aug 13, 2020 19:12:41 GMT -6
disciple4life: Boymaker, Brenda Weltner already missed several things and she tripled down on her timeline and predictions, which some have already not panned out. She missed the Tu B Av, and another key event that had to happen in July. Her entire theory uses one source

disciple4life: that incorrectly put Rev 12 sign on Feast of trumpets, in 2017, but a dozen Jewish and Non-Jewish sources all agree that it wasn't.

boymaker: I don't understand how the Trib could have started without the agreement being confirmed.
