Well, are you?



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.


Better yet, are you already beheaded?

1Cr 11:3
But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman, the man; and the head of Christ, God.


Eph 4:15
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, Christ:

So, if we speak the testimony of Jesus, which is the Word of God, are we not already beheaded, with Jesus as the head of the Body of Christ?

Just something to think about......

I believe the "beheading" is literal and prophesied to happen in the 3.5 yrs of Great Tribulation for the "Christians" who don't have God's protection.

The Bible specifically said only the elect... those who obey God's Law will escape all these things. They, I suspect, are those who keep the Commandments particularly the 4th on Sabbath and the Feasts!

So who are the elect? The 144000 (witnesses) sealed with the name of God on their forehead; and the "Woman" who I believe are the true believers/Church... both groups led out by the true Prophet of God (Malachi 4:5).

Rev 12
1:
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
2: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
3: And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
4: And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
5: 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.
6: And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.


Because of their sin (transgression of the Law)... a multitude of Christians now do not have God's armor, but will soon be subjected to a test of faith... beheading... "to wash clean their garments" so they would be found worthy to be in the 1st resurrection to rule with Jesus Christ in the Millennium.

I believe this is a very dire warning to our traditional Christian churches today who declare they are exempt from obeying God's Law; with their usual excuses such as the Sabbath was nailed to the cross; it is only for the Jews; they will be outta here in a "pre-trib" rapture; those beheaded in GT will be the Jews!

Don't you think this is so preposterous... Law-breaking Christians "saved" by God in a pre-trib rapture while Sabbath-keeping Jews beheaded???

now this is a nasty statement, unnecessary and unduly generalized in a forum where we do not really know each other.

funny, you are not being reported and mobbed for that, eh?

Aww Hot, you are taking all the fun out of the future. (BTW I agree with the latter)

For the rest here's a smiley to keep you amused.
