Reading Bible Prophecy 2012, #1

The "four horsemen of the apocalypse" pick up their gallop. The gospel (the first horse and rider, a white horse) picks up its gallop/progression. Then "wars and rumors of war" increase. The 2nd horseman, or element, of the 'latter' age of the year's A.D. is war, a red horse. The 3rd horse's march has to do with trade ("weights and balance" a black horse). All things economic slide. The 4th horseman is called "death" and "the grave" (mass) "follows after him" - this one is "pestilence" including chemical (we've seen this in our age and will see it again). This horseman rides a "pale horse".
- These four horsemen are the first four seals in the Book of Revelation. The 5th seal is persecutions and murders for the faith, and that too accelerates. The 6th  seal is thermal-nuclear winds.
- When each "seal" is described, very early on in the Book of Revelation narrative, they are described in a blend of what they are when first "opened" and what they are at the 'end' in their fully progressed state. [This obscures the Apocalypse vision, a first lock, and key.] This new wind, the sixth seal, was "opened" in 1945, then are seen "four angels at the four corners" (directions, north, south, east, west) "of the world holding back the wind" so it "not harm earth or trees" for a space of time (Rev 7:1). This progressing/galloping element of the years of our Lord A.D. also accelerates, as what's prophesied unfolds and occurs.
- - Matthew 24:7,8 - New King James Version (NKJV) - "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows."

List of Rules or "The Way is Easy"

The Jerusalem Council "and the Holy Ghost" decided gentiles/non-Hebrews did not need to follow all the Law/s of Moses in order to be accepted and acceptable - the moral laws.. of course! But there were also civil laws and dietary laws included in the laws given for Israel in order to prepare a place for Messiah -- it says in the New Testament, God knew man cannot follow the standards of perfection, not now. And trying to, ties one up in knots.. sooner or later. (These days meats are given lots of antibiotics so not everyone needs to choose to have dietary rules. Others do, but both are clearly told not to judge each other concerning such things.)
- Romans 14, Hebrews, Colossians 2:16,17 and Hebrews 4:1

World Peace

It's good, and on many's part, noble, to want to build or attain world peace and harmony of belief. And it's to be applauded, even agreed with. However, in the end, only pure untruth can stand (remain, endure) and humans have the tendency to resort to force.
