  1. The artwork makes the message alive and so beautiful. I am totally so very grateful for God's abundant blessings on this ministry. Tears stream down my face when I remember the beginning. Thank You heavenly Father for this awesome ministry. Continued pouring of Your abundant blessing please for Jesus's sake.

  2. Thank you for your beautiful works, in art and words! I can't draw a stick figure that looks good so I really enjoy others who are artistic!! I am beginning a new season in my journey by studying books in the bible. I go to these overviews before I begin each one and it is so helpful- I also read the books many times and write in a journal. This is the start of a new year, 2020 and my spirit is telling me it's going to be quite a year!! People like you really help others in their learning of God's word, THANK YOU and may God bless you always

  3. I pray that all of good of Silas, Paul, Thessalonica, the church of Thessalonica the book of 1 Thessalonians are all inside and out all that I have not prayed against. I pray all the evil of these is inside and out all that I have prayed against. In the name of the living and true God and His Son and all his creation this and all my prayers, subjects and stipulations are just all these things amen.

  4. i liked this until you oversimplified the return of jesus by conveniently erasing the rapture of the church, the great tribulation and the mystery of Israels salvation and the millenial kingdom.

  5. Hi bible project. I like your summary. It's very detailed. Thanks for all the hard work that you do on a daily basis to bring us this projects about our Creator and His teachings. The only thing I notice is that towards the end there was a contradiction of Christ's kingdom. You stated that Christ will establish an earthly kingdom, which is not biblical, and then you said that He already started a kingdom. You got the latter right. That kingdom that He started in Acts 2 is the everlasting kingdom. Hebrews 12:28. We have already received His kingdom so when he appears again it will be the end, judgement day. Chapter 4 states that we who are alive will meet Him in the air, that's when he delivers his Church which is His kingdom to His Father 1 Corinthians 15:24. We always have to remember to see His kingdom as a heavenly kingdom not an earthly kingdom John 18:36. Christ already finished his work here on earth John 17:4. The bible doesn't contradict itself. Hebrew 9:28 states that when he appears again it will have no relation with sin. He conquered sin at the cross. Common sense tells us that. Please think for heavenly bound when He appears again. Philippians 3:18-21. God bless you all

  6. 5:27 — I first learned about this in R.C Sproul's "The Last Days According To Jesus". And, as a Partial Preterist, this is what I believe the rapture will be; not a divine escape pod so we'll be safe while God bombards humanity for 7 years or so we'll be free from a global anti-Christ's persecution, but rather the rapture will occur so that we can greet King Jesus as He arrives back into this world, ready to finalize the inauguration of His kingdom that began in the first century A.D (The Kingdom of God is "already, but not yet" as N.T Wright and Michael Heiser put it).

  8. Jesus preached sedition and insurrection. If he had been alive today to spread his gospel of a new government replacing the current one and of the White House, the Capitol, and the Supreme Court buildings being torn down and not one brick standing against another, then you can be absolutely sure that the protective services of the United States from the FBI down to the local policemen and security guards at various businesses in his town of residence would be monitoring him.
