Matthew 24:36-44
36.] No one knows the day and the hour. The angels in heaven don't know, and the Son himself doesn't know. Only the Father knows. 37.] When the Son of Man appears, things will be just as they were when Noah lived. 38.] People were eating, drinking and getting married right up to the day that the flood came and Noah went into the big boat. They didn't know anything was happening until the flood came and swept them all away.  That is how it will be when the Son of Man appears.
40.] Two men will be in the same field, but only one will be taken. Two women will be together grinding corn, but only one will be taken. The other will be left. 42.] So be on your guard!  You don't know when your Lord will come. 43.] Homeowners never know when a thief is coming, and they are always on guard to keep one from breaking in. 44.] Always be ready! You don't know when the Son of Man will come.

MATTHEW 24:1-14

MATTHEW 24:3-14
3.] LATER, as Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, his disciples came to Him in private and asked, "When will this happen? What will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the world?"
4.] Jesus answered:
Don't let anyone fool you. 5.] Many will come and claim to be me. They will say that they are the Messiah, and they will fool many people.
6.] You will hear about wars and threats of wars, but don't be afraid. These things have to happen first, but that isn't the end. 7.] Nations and Kingdoms will go to war against each other. People will starve to death, and in some places there will be earthquakes. 8.] But this is just the beginning of troubles.
9.] You will be arrested, punished and even killed. Because of me, you will be hated by people of all nations. 10.] Many will give up, and will betray and hate each other. 11.] Many false prophets will come and fool a lot of people. 12.] Evil will spread and cause many people to stop loving others. 13.] But if you keep on being faithful right to the end, you will be saved. 14.] When the good news about the Kingdom has been preached all over the world and told to all nations, the end will come.

MATTHEW 24:15-28
15.] Someday you will see that "Horrible Thing" in the Holy Place, just as the prophet Daniel said. Everyone who reads this must try to understand! 16.] If you are living in Judea at that time, run to the mountains. 17.] If you are on the roof of your house don't go inside to get anything. 18.] If you are out in the field, don't go back for your coat.  19.] It will be a terrible time for women who are expecting babies or nursing young children. 20.] And pray that you don't have to escape in the winter time or on a Sabbath. 21.] This will be the worse time of suffering since the beginning of the world, and nothing this terrible will ever happen again. 22.] If God doesn't make the time shorter, no one will be left alive. But because of God's chosen ones, he will make the time shorter.
23.] Someone may say, "Here is the Messiah!" or "There he is!" But don't believe it. 24.] False messiahs and false prophets will come and work great miracles and signs. They will even try to fool God's chosen ones. 25.] But I have warned you ahead of time. 26.] If you are told that the Messiah is out in the desert, don't go there. 27.] The coming of the Son of Man will be like lightening that can be seen from the east to the west. 28.] Where there is a corpse there will always be buzzards.
29.] Right after those days of suffering,
"The sun will become dark,
and the moon
 will no longer shine.
The stars will fall,
and the powers in the sky
will be shaken."
30.] Then a sign will appear in the sky. And there will be the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31.] At the sound of a loud trumpet,  he will send his angels to bring his chosen ones together from all over the earth.

REVELATION 4:1-11
1.] After this I looked and saw a door that was opened into heaven. Then the voice that had spoken to me at first and that sounded like a trumpet said,"Come up here! I will show you what must happen next."  2.] Right then, the Spirit took control of me, and there in heaven I saw a throne and someone sitting on it. 3.] The one who was sitting there sparkled like precious stones of jasper and carnelian. A rainbow that looked a emerald surrounded the throne.
4.] Twenty four other thrones were in a circle around that throne.  And on each of these thrones there was an elder dressed in white clothes and wearing a gold crown. 5.] Flashes of lightening and roars of thunder came out from the throne in the center of the circle. Seven torches, which are the seven spirits of God, were burning in front of the throne. 6.] Also, in front of the throne was  something that looked like a glass sea, clear as crystal.
Around the throne in the center were four living creatures, covered front and back with eyes. 7.] The first creature was like a lion, the second one was like a bull, the third one had the face of a human, and the fourth one was like a flying eagle. 8.] Each of the four living creatures had six wings, and their bodies were covered with eyes. Day and night they never stopped singing,
   "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord,
      the all powerful God,
    who was and is coming."
9.] The living creatures kept praising, honoring, and thanking the one who sits on the throne and lives forever and ever. 10.] At the same time the twenty four elders knelt down before the one sitting on the throne. And as they worshiped the one who lived forever, they placed their crowns in front of the throne and said,
11.] "Our Lord and God,
              you are worthy
           to receive glory,
           honor, and power.
            You created all things
            and by your decisions they are
            and were created."

Dear friends,
I had planned to continue this study of Revelation;however, Revelations is fairly long, I have several studies going on already, and with school beginning next week, I have decided that I will put off doing a study of Revelation until much later.
That does not mean that you can't read Revelation on your own though. It's always good to continue your bible readings and studies in your own home or other places, and reading the bible is always good in any case. I will continue with my other studies as I have the time and I will leave this thread on for you to view or add comment! I promise I will continue to be active on some of the other threads though!
your sister in Christ,
Donna

The Civil War is Over, but Challenges Remain for Burmese Christians
Despite global euphoria over official reforms, the reported changes have had little actual impact on the more than four million Burmese Christians. “Getting a permit to build a church takes at least one year,” says a pastor. “But the cost to become a ‘permanent church’ is beyond our capacity.”

Christians Encounter Ramadan in Bangladesh
“It is offensive to eat or drink in front of a fasting Muslim,” says a Bengali sister. “I once worked for a non-profit organization and my colleagues would bring food during Ramadan… they ate in secret. I did not do it.” She added, “Joining the Muslims in their fasting would bring Christ closer to them.”

Update on Behnam Irani

Within the last week, Behnam Irani became so sick that he lost consciousness. As a result, he was finally allowed to be transferred to to prison hospital. His family had been worried for weeks that he seemed to be suffering from an intestinal issue. Instead, it appears that Behnam suffers from a bleeding ulcer. We are thankful Behnam is being treated by a doctor, but we encourage you to continue to pray for him since the situation is so serious.

Syrian Christians Fear for Their Future if Extremists Take Control: With Syrian President Bashar al-Assad possibly losing his grip on power,  an end to the bloody civil war may be in sight. While the defeat of Assad and the military would be welcome news to most, the sizeable Christian community of over 1.5 million is fearful for its future. “If Assad falls, Christians in Syria are fearful of what will happen when a new government – probably a radical Islamic one – will come into power,” says Open Doors USA President/CEO Dr. Carl Moeller.  Read more>>  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Christians Brace Themselves for Ramadan Persecution Wave: Christians around the globe are gearing up for increased persecution. Ramadan, which began on July 20th, is a month in which Muslims pay special attention to their religious duties within Islam. Some of those may include fasting during the day, praying more, and increased giving to the poor. But for Christians living in the Muslim world, the heightened responsibility to Allah that some Muslims feel during Ramadan can be dangerous. Read more>>    [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Will Christians and Jews Be Protected in Egypt's New Constitution?: The Constituent Assembly committee has revealed articles of Egypt's new constitution.  The document declares that "Islam is the religion of the state" informed by Islamic Sharia principles. However, those statements seem to contradict another included provision for Christians and Jews to be governed by their own religion. Although newly instated President Morsi, of the Muslim Brotherhood, vowed that the new Egypt would be democratic and more inclusive of its minority segments, doubts have persisted among some observers.  Read more>>

Why the U.S. Must Oppose Blasphemy Laws-Not Just Their Abuse: In a recent blog published by National Review, Nina Shea of the Hudson Institute reflects on the recent blasphemy case involving a young Christian girl in Pakistan. In discussing the U.S. response she notes, “U.S. State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland spoke in terms of 'misuse of the blasphemy law.' It is time for U.S. diplomats to recognize that this is not a problem of 'misuse.' No reform or legal tweaking can perfect this law.” Read more>>

Stand Up For Religious Minorities in Middle East: Katrina Lantos Swett, who serves as chair of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), authored a commentary which recently appeared in The Detroit News. In this article Swett reflects that the plight of Middle East religious minorities is unmistakably grim. Although the situation is dismal she believes there is hope, “There is still time for the Arab Spring to produce pro-human-rights alternatives to authoritarian dictatorships and violent religious extremism.”  Read more>>  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
