Daniel is given visions of four beasts in chapter 7. The little horn is an outgrowth of the fourth beast replacing three previous horns. Verse 17 explains who the beasts are, “These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out [...]
Please explain Mathew 10:23, “When they persecute you in this city, flee to another. For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.”
These instructions were given primarily to the twelve Apostles. Doubtless, they understood them to mean that their mission was not to stay long in a place. As persecution arose, and the people were unwilling to hear their message, they were to go to other cities [...]
The origin of all true prophecy comes from Jehovah God. He is the only being who knows the future. Isaiah 42:8-9 (NIV), “I am the LORD; that is my name! I will not yield my glory to another or my praise to idols. See, [...]

What does Nahum 1:7 mean? "The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knows them that trust in him."
The book of Nahum is a prophecy against the city of Nineveh, the capital of Assyria (current day Mosul, Iraq). History records that the Assyrians were ruthless and cruel to their captives. Sadly, parts of Judea were under Assyrian control. In God's judgment, it [...]
Isaiah 41:17-20, “The afflicted and needy are seeking water, but there is none, And their tongue is parched with thirst; I, the LORD, will answer them Myself, As the God of Israel I will not forsake them. I will open rivers on the bare [...]
This question comes from Genesis 3, verse 15. Satan, the ‘anointed cherub that covereth’ was the guardian angel appointed to watch over our first parents (Ezekiel 28:13-17). We know that he lured Eve into eating the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. As a [...]
Yes, it is possible. Satan can cast out Satan by promoting contradictory partial lies. His response to combat the legitimate increase of knowledge is to “transform” himself into an “angel of light.” 2 Corinthians 11:14-15, 3, 1 Corinthians 15:24-26, Matthew 7:22-23. He disguises himself [...]

Does the Bible prophesy a big war (like a World War 3)? Does it mention millions dying before Jesus Christ’s return?
There are and will be insurmountable problems, including war, but Christ will use the trouble to demolish the old, sin-sick governments and institutions. Christ will cut short the wars to establish His righteous reign on earth. Matthew 24:21, 22 (RSV), “there will be great [...]
Part 1: the Bible foretells great evilness in the last days. 2 Timothy 3:1-5 (NIV), "But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, [...]
About the Virgin Mary why do you say she has kids while the Bible clearly states otherwise? Ezekiel 44:2, "Then said the LORD unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the LORD, the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut."
Ezekiel 40-43 record Ezekiel's vision of God's temple. Ezekiel 43:10 specifically states, "Son of man, describe the temple to the people of Israel." These chapters furnish the dimensions of the walls, the gates, the chambers, the courts, the steps, the furniture, the hooks, the [...]

Whose descendants are the Philistines? Why are they in constant conflict with Israelites 'till this date?
The Philistines were a people of Aegean origin who settled on the southern coast of Palestine about the same time as did the Israelites. According to biblical tradition (Deuteronomy 2:23; Jeremiah 47:4), the Philistines came from Caphtor (possibly Crete, although there is no archaeological [...]
The true student of the Bible is careful. The Bible warns us not to expect to see Jesus in Matthew 24 in verses: 3 …Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end [...]

The person Shiloh is only referenced once in the Bible. Genesis 49:10 (ASV), “The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the obedience of the peoples be.” Shiloh is Jesus. [...]
