This is not going to be a very long article at all. In fact, it’s going to be rather brief. I apologize in advance for any grammatical or spelling errors you may come across in this or the previous article, but my husband, who is normally my editor, has been extra busy these past several weeks with work and helping his family. Hopefully he’ll be able to play catch up one day soon and check these articles for me. This one is about the mystery behind the disciple that Jesus Christ loved. I know there are several schools of thought on whom this could be, such as John the apostle, Mary Magdalene, and Lazarus. I’ll be honest, I have not studied all the different schools of thoughts and why some scholars come to these conclusions. All I can do is share my thoughts on the topic and who I think it is. Please, I kindly ask, feel free to share your thoughts with me as to whom you think it is and why I may be wrong or to share scripture to corroborate why I may be right. All Glory and Praise goes to God in the name of Jesus Christ always and forever.
This article discusses the mark of the beast, which is the number of a man, and delves into scripture about receiving the Seal of the Holy Spirit and rising to the measure of an angel. First, I would like to preface this article with the sentiment that we are all of the same flock – all those that have Faith in Jesus Christ and that follow God’s Commandments.
“Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”
I had a wonderfully exciting message delivered to me recently! It began with my looking over a global map, surveying the shapes of today’s continental coastlines. I was trying to determine, out of curiosity, which piece of land in Africa was more than likely to have been connected to my home state of Florida before they split apart long, long ago. Eyeballing it for myself, it looked like the shape of the coast of Mauritania seemed to fit Florida perfectly.
Above map: line pointing to Florida and pointing to Mauritania to show how they once snugly fit with each other. You can also clearly see how all of Africa once snugly fit with the Americas. Image via Wikipedia Commons.
