This is a multi part series looking at bible/prophecy from the view point of the world that it was written in.
This first video does not address prophecy directly but is produced in order to demonstrate the importance of knowing the historical nuances of the world and thinking of the people of bible times and lands. Your view of the bible is about to be greatly enhanced and your faith made stronger. Links to reading and other course material are provided in the video.

Thanks schooldad, I am excited to hear what you have to offer on historical perspectives. "those who don't know their history are doomed to repeat it" (or however that saying goes). Why don't we as people, humans endeavor to know and understand our history. Both from a biblical perspective but also how the non-biblical world operated. We can learn and glean from the cultures as to what their worldviews were and learn how that shapes things in our time today.
John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
Boymaker2: I have been waiting for UFO proof. I think thus is there pretense for our vanishing.

mike: Boymaker - I recall you see the rapture as pre-Trib (IIRC-could be wrong tho). UFO would only make sense in that context. What if rapture is late Trib, or pre-Wrath? Just curious

bernie: mike/yardstick: I've always been taught and believed we vanish at the Rapture. Somewhere recently I read, our clothing remains, and somewhere else, our dead bodies remain. I looked in the "Rapture" section on the board but didn't see anything?

Boymaker2: Mike, I don't have a plan B, LOL! I am just going with the flow. Having been raised in New Age, I just expect that "ascended masters" will play a part in the great delusion. We've been primed for this for generations.

EnochWalked: If the Rapture occurs after the start of Tribulation, I imagine there will be so much general chaos and/or media control by the AC that many wouldn't notice that the Christians are missing. Especially if there's a lockdown, or Christianity is illegal.

yardstick: @ew: I expect the chaos to be present and we get yanked out of it. Meanwhile everyone else is yelling "peace!"; "safety!"; and clamoring for someone to give them a fix to the problem. Hence, why I believe covid is a practice run.

EnochWalked: YS: That makes a lot of sense, thank you. I imagine that the AC does give a sort of illusory "peace and safety" at least briefly, and maybe that hubris allows him to declare himself a god and be accepted as such by many.
