Verse of the Day -- Romans 14:1Now accept the one who is weak in faith, but
not for the purpose of passing judgment on his opinions.THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Overlook unscriptural opinions that come from a weak faith.
MINI BIBLE STUDY FOR THE
God wants us to accept our brothers and sisters in Christ who are weak in faith and NOT pass judgment
on them because of dumb things they do or say. If they are new in faith, the Bible compares them to babies:
(I speak to you as) babes in Christ. I gave you milk
to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. -1 Corinthians 3:1-2
As a new baby Christian, we have a lot of needs. We need good spiritual food to grow strong. We need constant attention
so we don't get into trouble. And we don't make great decisions all the time-because we are not spiritually mature. And just
like growing up and learning, it takes several years (if not a lifetime :-).
A man's discretion makes him slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook a transgression. -Proverbs
QUESTION FOR THE DAY
Do you see any prophetic significance in the peace talks between Israel and their surrounding

There will come a time in the future when a peace treaty will be "confirmed" or enforced
for Israel for a seven-year period.
he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and
grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that
is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate. -Daniel 9:27
architect of the treaty will be a great world leader who eventually dies of a head wound but is revived and indwelled by Satan
... thus becoming the prophesied anti-Christ.
The seven-year period:
Ten nations will be involved in this peace treaty, all from the former
Roman Empire-five nations from the Roman leg and five from the Eastern leg-which would exclude the United States.
For the Lord Himself will descend
from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we
shall always be with the Lord. -1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
- Ends with Armageddon.
And they gathered
them together to the place which in Hebrew is called Har-Magedon. -Revelation 16:16
- And precedes the 1000-year reign of Christ as King on earth from Jerusalem.
Then I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was
given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word
of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their
hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. -Revelation 20:4
As the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of
pottery, so some of the kingdom will be strong and part of it will be brittle. -Daniel 2:42
After this I kept looking in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrifying and
extremely strong; and it had large iron teeth. It devoured and crushed and trampled down the remainder with its feet; and
it was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns. -Daniel 7:7
also Daniel 7:24 and Revelation 17:12.
It is possible that what we are watching is
the beginning stages of a peace treaty that is later enforced by the world leader who gains world power in the vacuum after
The Bible says that post-Rapture, Russia and Persia (Iran) will attack Israel using nuclear
weapons (Ezekiel 38/39). Israel defeats Russia/Iran, wiping out 5/6ths of their army but accepts a peace treaty for future
protection from this world leader.
But the most intriguing part of this whole scenario is that
all the above was written as Bible prophecy over 2000 years ago. God prophesied that after the Jews rejected and killed their

- They would be scattered around the world for some 2000 years.
Come, let us return to the LORD
For He has torn us, but He will heal us;

That we may
live before Him. -Hosea 6:1-2

nations of the earth will be gathered against it. -Zechariah 12:3
