"And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him." (Genesis 5:24)
Some would not consider this to be an illustration of the ascension of Christ, and perhaps, rightly so. It may illustrate more rightly, the pre-trib rapture of the church. The Bible, speaking of types and shadows in the Old Testament now clearly revealed in the New, are not a few. The Bible tells us, "Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples (Gr. tupos): and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come." (1 Corinthians 10:11) Hebrews 11:5 states concerning Enoch, "By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God." As for Christ, we are told, "Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him." (Romans 6:9) Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead. Death is no longer able to touch Him, as He is "alive for evermore" (Revelaiton 1:18). And after He was seen of many witnesses we are told He was "taken up ... into heaven" (Acts 1:11). So we believe that the arguement can be made, that, if Enoch illustrates the pre-trib rapture of the siants, the only reason they are able to be raptured, is that Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose again, and "ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things" (Ephesians 4:10). Jesus said, "because I live, ye shall live also" (John 14:9). "In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him." (1 John 4:9). We only live because Christ lives. He is the first cause of all things, and so too, the ressurection from the dead, as He said, "I am the ressurection, and the life" (John 11:12), and our ascension into heaven, for He "ascended on high [and] led captivity captive" (Psalm 68:18).
"So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God." (Mark 16:19)
"And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne." (Revelation 12:5)
"And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant." (Genesis 9:26-27)
It is clear that Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Son of God, was born of the line of Shem. The question is whether or not this was foretold in Genesis 9:26-27. We are told that "he shall dwell in the tents of Shem". Does the "he" refer to God or Japheth? It is noted that God's spiritual blessings would fall primarily on Shem whose God is Jehovah. And if the "he" be Japheth, from whom the Gentiles descended, I think that this would imply that Japheth would come to share in the spiritual blessings and fellowship of Shem. This would be totally in agreement with the Scriptures for the Gentiles did recieve light and blessings through the descendant of Shem, and the promised Seed, namely Jesus Christ. Nevertheless, if the "he" be God, and it be He who would shine through and tabernacle with Shem, even until the fulness of time when God sent forth His Son, the true Light of the world, when the Word became flesh and dwelt (tabenacled) among us, this also would be in agreement with the Scripture.
"And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli... Which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad, which was the son of Shem..." (Luke 3:23-36)
"The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be." (Genesis 49:10)
The Seed was first mentioned in Genesis 3:15, then confirmed to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. Now it is confirmed to Judah. The leadership, according to Jacob, was to go to Judah, but this did not happen for over six hundred years. Moses came from Levi, Joshua from Ephraim, Gideon from Manasseh, Samson from Dan, Samuel from Ephraim and Saul from Benjamin. But when David finally became king, Judah became the dominant tribe from that time on. Judah held the sceptre and did not relinquish it until after Shiloh came.
There were many prophecies in the OT pertaining to the coming Christ. "there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel... Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion" (Numbers 24:17, 19) and again, "But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting." (Micah 5:2) This led the wise men of the east to come to Jerusalem saying, "Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him." (Matthew 2:2) From this they knew that out of Bethlehem, from the tribe of Judah, "shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel." (v. 6)
In that day, genealogical records were readily available in the Temple. But after the Messiah died for our sins and rose again from the dead for our justification, in AD 70, the temple was destroyed with all its genealogical records. The Jews were then scattered to the nations of the world, so we could truly say from that time, the Sceptre departed from Judah, for with no certainty can any Jew prove he is from the tribe of Judah. So with this certainty, we knew that Shiloh has come, for He is the "Lion of the tribe of Judah".
"And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn." (Luke 2:1-7)
"But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law" (Galatians 4:4).
"But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying, Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered." (Jeremiah 11:19)
Not many commentators apply this verse in Jeremiah to Christ. Most apply it to Jeremiah, and indeed the people of apostate Israel and Judah at that time were speaking that to him. Nevertheless, what many have forgotten, is that many of the prophets, in one form or another of their ministry, exemplified in his own person some one feature or more in the manifold attributes and sufferings of the Messiah to come, and so that which applied to them, was in fact being spoken also of Christ.
And this is not hard to discern as this was also clearly spoken of the Messiah in Isaiah 53, that He "was cut off out of the land of the living", and ever so clearly in Daniel 9:27, that at the appointed time "shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself", no, not for Himself, but "for the transgression of my people was he stricken" (Isaiah 53:8).
Furthermore, this being conspired in the minds of the detractors, "that his name be no more remembered", would certainly remind us of Psalm 83, where it is written, "Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance." Here speaking of Israel, but once again, typified as Christ (Ex. 4:22, Hosea 11:1, Mt. 2:15) whom is identified as Israel, my firstborn Son whom He called out of Egypt, whom through the loins of Israel He was to come as the promised Seed of Abraham.
And Christ, foreknowing all things prophesied of this also saying, "the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again" (Mark 8:31). And again, "they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again." (Mark 10:34) And this being in their mind, we are told, "the Jews sought to kill him" (John 7:1), the Prince of life. And for what purpose? Even the ignorant Caiaphas prophesied that, "it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people" (John 11:50). And so, Christ died for our sins, He was buried, and rose again from the dead according to the Scriptures. Hallelujah!
There are so many riches and treasures and wonders hidden in the Scriptures that they are just too wonderful for me.
"...the Jews sought to kill him." (John 7:1)
"...come, let us kill him..." (Matthew 21:38)

Stever,
Good, you do not believe the false teaching of the "gap theory"
https://www.accordingtothescriptures.org/creation/fossilrecord1.html
https://www.accordingtothescriptures.org/creation/creation.html

God tells us the reason for the Flood, because the wickedness of man was great and his thoughts were only evil continually. He had filled the earth with violence and corrupted God's way upon the earth.

"And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them." (Genesis 6:5-7)

"The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth." (Genesis 6:11-13)

Yes I have read the "book of Enoch", which is not the inspired and preserved Word of God. God preserved one prophecy of Enoch in Jude 1:14-15. There is no Biblical evidence that he wrote a book.

Yes the first sin in the universe was when Lucifer thought to do evil. "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit." (Isaiah 14:12-15) And as we know from Revelation 12 that 1/3 of an innumerable company of angels followed him.

Dinosaurs are just extinct lizards that God had created in the beginning, not "DNA manipulation". Not sure why you folk try to make the Bible say what it does not say, and run to un-Biblical sources to support your case. Before mankind goes too far in his corruption as in the days of Noah, He will intervene in a different way than when He confused the languages of man at Babel (Genesis 11:6-9), and that is with His glorious Second Coming when He returns to save His people Israel, destroy the nations who come against Jerusalem, and to put down evil and set up His Kingdom, when Satan will be bound for 1000 years.

I have read Isaiah 7:1 through Isaiah 7:15 and I do not understand how Isaiah 7:14 has anything to do with Jesus. It looks like a conversation between Isaiah and King Ahaz. Can someone explain to me how Isaiah 7:14 relates to Jesus?

Hi Paul,

Concerning the "sign" or miracle spoken by the prophet Isaiah, of a virgin who would conceive, was also fulfilled in Jesus Christ our Messiah (Matthew 1:18-23). This "sign" was given to the whole "house of David" (Isaiah 7:13), consequently fulfilling also that primeval prophecy concerning the "seed of the woman" (Genesis 3:15). This would be an entirely new thing, that is, this virgin would encompass the Messiah in her womb (Jeremiah 31:22). Men produce genetic seed naturally, but a woman could only generate a "seed" supernaturally, via the virgin birth. God "prepared a body" (Hebrews 10:5) in the womb of the "virgin", and the "fullness of the Godhead" dwelt in Him bodily (Colossians 2:9).

Prophecy was often times written in a way that they would have a near and far fulfillment. Now the New covenant makes it clear that Messiah is that one who would be born of a virgin, the "seed of the woman", but here is something that may help you through this. Now Israel and Syria were confederate against Judah to make war and overthrow Jerusalem. But God promised that it would not come to pass. God then told Ahaz, king of Judah, to ask a sign of the Lord God, and he would not. So what does the Lord say? He does not address Ahaz but says, "Hear ye now, O house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also? Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel." (Isaiah 7:13-14)

Ahaz piously refused to ask as the Lord commanded, so He said, I will give you a sign myself. He said here is a miracle, the "virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel" whose name means God with us. This was the far part of that prophecy, for it was two fold, and the other sign, "before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land that thou abhorrest shall be forsaken of both her kings." Isaiah here is speaking the oracles of God and says, "before the child", what child?, his own son, Shearjashub, who was there, perhaps in Isaiah's arms, before he grows up to know the difference between good and evil, the kings of Syria and Ephraim should come to nought.

Many commentators have said that a virgin in Isaiah's day got married and had a child, but we should keep in mind, that for a woman to conceive and have a child naturally is no miracle or sign at all. Rather, a miracle would be as we read in the New Covenant, "Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost... And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS." (Matthew 1:18, 25)

Joseph did not believe in the virgin birth either until the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream.

"Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us." (Matthew 1:19-23)

Noel,

I now see what the problem is. I am reading it according to the original Hebrew to English translation. You are not. According to the Hebrew to English translation it is a young woman, the translation you are using, uses the word virgin. I do not know the reason for the mistranslation on the version you are using. But thank you for your interpretation.

Paul, virgin is no mistranslated at all. The Hebrew word "almah" is a word that denotes a young woman who is a virgin. In the Septuagint, the Greek translation of the Hebrew Scriptures, "almah" was translated by the 70 Greek/Hebrew scholars as "parthenes" which can only mean "virgin". It appears that they clearly understood the meaning of "almah", to be that of a young woman that is a virgin.

Furthermore, "naarah" is the Hebrew word to denote a "young woman". Almah is the Hebrew word to denote a young woman that is a virgin, and when the 54 scholars translated the KJV they chose to translate almah, in this particular context, to be virgin. Here is an example that uses both these words: In regards to Rebekah, "the damsel (Heb. naarah) was very fair to look upon, a virgin (Heb. almah), neither had any man known her: and she went down to the well, and filled her pitcher, and came up." (Genesis 24:16) Rebekah was a "damsel" (Heb. naarah; young woman) but also a "virgin" (Heb. almah) (Genesis 24:43) before she met Isaac.

I would also like to point out, of the seven times that the word "almah" is used in the OT, there is no instance where it can be proved that this word designates a young woman who is not a virgin. "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a SIGN (Note: SIGN is also translated "miracle". What sort of "miracle" would this be if a "young woman" got pregnant by a man?); Behold, a VIRGIN [Hebrew: Almah] shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel" (Isaiah 7:14).

Indeed the "sign" would be a miracle that the Lord would reveal to the "house of David", which the Lord at the first offered to Ahaz to ask any sign to prove that the saying of the Lord was true, but instead, Ahaz wearied the Lord, and in pious unbelief, was afraid to ask. Yet he could have asked the Lord anything for nothing is too difficult for Him.

I believe Isaiah 7:14 should be understood as follows: Behold! The virgin (looking back to that primeval promise of the coming Messiah to destroy the work of the devil, Genesis 3:15), shall conceive and bear a son, "the Seed of the woman" (not of man), who would be God with us, God manifest in the flesh.

I would like to reiterate, that when it is said, "before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land that thou abhorrest shall be forsaken of both her kings" (Isaiah 7:15-16). I believe this may be understood of Isaiah's child, Shearjashub, which he had along with him, and was bidden to take with him (Isaiah 7:3), and who therefore must be supposed to bear some part, or answer some end or other, in this prophecy; and this, to assure Ahaz and the house of David that the land which was abhorred by them should be forsaken of both its kings, before the child that was with him was grown to years of discretion. In the space of a few years, this remarkable deliverance should be wrought, and the Jews freed from all fears of being destroyed by these two kings.

And so this prophecy, as well as many others, offers a near and far prophecy, the near, that it may be seen and fulfilled in the days of the prophet, to prove if Isaiah was a true or false prophet which was punishable by stoning. And would thereby lend credence to the far prophecy, which would be fulfilled long after Isaiah had passed from this scene. And so we read in the Scriptures, "Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven..." (1 Peter 1:12)

Every Hebrew to English source I have checked states that Almah means young woman not young woman that is a virgin. But you are going to go with your story no matter what I state, that is fine. You have a story to tell and you will tell it however you want and need to tell it to prove what you want it to prove. It is a shame that you have to interpret another religion's holy scripture wrong, to make your point.

Well Paul, this could be settled rather easy. Just give me one example where it can be proved that this word "almah" designates a young woman who is not a virgin.

Noel,
The Jewish Publication Society Tanakh had almah translated into English as young woman. Not young woman that is a virgin. In this case I will trust a Jewish source. Like I would trust a Christian source for the New Testament and a Muslim source for the Koran.

I know this is difficult for those who reject the Messiah to accept. But if you will be honest with yourself you will find that of the seven times "almah" is used in the Scriptures it is never used to describe a "young, presently married woman." It is important to remember that in the Bible, a young Jewish woman of marriageable age was presumed to be chaste.

Another thing for you to consider, is when the 70 Greek and Hebrew scholars translated the Septuagint, this was 200 years before the Christian era so the translators had no "Christian" bias, and they translated "almah" as "parthenes" which can only mean "virgin" which rests on the older Jewish interpretation. This was an important translation for at that time, for Greek was the predominant language of the day, and many Jews were still scattered about the Grecian empire.

The modern English translations of the Tanakh which you are referring to came after the Christian era, and expresses the Jewish translators bias against Christ and their rejection of their Messiah.

One more thing you might consider, is that Isaiah 7:14 does not have a history of Jewish messianic interpretation and the very unlikelihood of this passage being interpreted messianically makes the New Testament account all the more credible. In other words, the gospel writer, Matthew, was not trying to fit Jesus' life into a traditional mold, but rather turned to Scripture to explain what had taken place in the event of the virgin birth.

"Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us." (Matthew 1:18-23)

If you read on in Isaiah, you will find out who this Son is. "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this." (Isaiah 9:6-7)

The "time of Jacob's Trouble" (Jeremiah 30:4-7) is right on the doorstep. I pray you are prepared to meet your God.

"And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day." (2 Thessalonians 1:7-10)

Noel,

It's not difficult for me to accept that Jesus is not the Jewish Messiah. You can presume all you want about the meaning of words from the Tanakh, but your presumption does not mean it is right.

you make me laugh. Why would the Jewish translation have bias against Jesus for? it is clear that Jesus is not the Jewish Messiah. I say that because Christians claim that G-d is the father of Jesus, not Joseph. According to the Tanakh, the Jewish Messiah must be descendant of King David(Jeremiah 23:5, 33:17, Ezekiel 34:23-24). The Greek Testament traces the genealogy of Joseph back to David, it then claims that Jesus resulted from a virgin birth and that Joseph was not his father (Matthew 1:18-23. In response, it claimed that Joseph adopted Jesus and passed on his genealogy via adaption. The problem with this is that there is no Biblical basis for the idea of a father passing on his tribal line by adaption. Joseph could not pass on by adaption that which he does not have. Because Joseph descended from Joconiah (Matthew 1:11) he fell under the curse of that king that none ofof his descendants could ever sis as king unpon the throne of David. (Jeremiah 22:40; 36:30).

Yup, God was the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 10:32-33; 11:27, John 5:43, 8:19, 10:24-27). Yes, Solomon's line was cut off because of Jechonia's sin (Jeremiah 22:24-30). Joseph was not the natural father of Jesus (Matthew 1:20). While Jesus could inherit the legal right to the throne through Joseph, Jesus inherited the Spiritual right to the throne through His mother Mary, who was a daughter of King David (Luke 3:23-30), carrying the Seed of David.

Noel,

There is no evidence that Mary descends from David. The third chapter of Luke traces Joseph's genealogy not Mary's. Even if Mary can trace herself back to David, that does not help Jesus, since tribal affiliation goes only trough the father, not the mother (Numbers 1;18; Ezra 2:59). Even if family line goes through the mother, Mary was not a legitimate Messianic family. According to the Tanakh the Jewish Messiah must be a descendant of David through his son Solomon (IISamual 7:14; I Chronicles 17:11-14. 22:9-10. 28:4-6). The third chapter of Luke is useless because it goes through David's son Nathan, not Solomon (Luke 3:31) As far as the spiritual, it is not mentioned in the Tanakh. Also, if Jesus is the son of G-d, he is still not part of the blood line from David through his son Solomon. That on its own means Jesus is not the Jewish Messiah. He can be the Christian Messiah.

Joseph's pedigree is in Matthew, and Mary's is in Luke. Mary was of the lineage of David through Nathan (Luke 3:31), while Joseph was of the Lineage of David through Solomon (Matthew 1:6-7). And I would like to remind you, that if any would arise on the scene today saying they are the Messiah, they would not have any pedigree to prove it, for all the genealogical records were destroyed in AD 70 when the Temple was destroyed by the Romans.

You must understand that it would be the "seed of the woman" who would destroy the works of the devil (Genesis 3:15; 1 John 3:8, Hebrews 2:14, Galatians 4:4-5).

I will repeat, Solomon's line was cut off from having one to sit upon the throne of David because of the sin of Jechonia. In 2 Samuel 7:8-17 we will find here a near and far application, but David understood that this was not speaking only of his son Solomon, but looked far into the future, speaking of the everlasting kingdom of the Messiah, for "thou hast spoken also of thy servant's house for a great while to come." (2 Samuel 7:19) In 1 Chronicles 17:11-14 the prophet Nathan is speaking to David not Solomon. Sure, Solomon would be a son of God, but this was also a prophecy concerning Christ (Hebrews 1:5). You must understand that the throne of Solomon's kingdom did not last "for ever". It came to an abrupt end with the Babylonian Captivity in the days of Jechonia (Matthew 1:11). The prophecy of the everlasting throne and kingdom is Christ's (Luke 1:32, 33 Hebrews 1:8), who is the Seed of David and the Son of God (Romans 1:3-4), for even David called him Lord (Psalm 110:1).

And yes, because the Jew's missed their visitation and rejected their Messiah, He is now fulfilling the Scriptures to be a Light unto the Gentile's (Isaiah 42:6-7; 49:6; 60:1-3), and yes, a great many of the Gentiles have received Him as their Messiah, and saved them from their sins, but also a good number of Jews today, for their blindness is only in part (Romans 11:25-28). One day that veil shall be taken away from their hearts, and they shall look upon the One whom they pierced and repent and mourn (2 Corinthians 3:14-17, Psalm 22:11-14, 15-18, 19-21, Zechariah 12:9-11; 13:1, Revelation 1:7), but only after that time that they go through the "time of Jacob's Trouble" (Jeremiah 30:3-6, 7, 22-24, Daniel 12:1-2, Joel 2:1-2, Deuteronomy 4:29-31). Far better to be saved today my friend and save yourself some pain.
