  1. Are Nebuchadnezzer and the Northern king reversed? It’s been more than a year since I’ve read the book of Daniel, but I don’t remember the King of the North being mentioned and vice versa with Nebuchadnezzer and Isaiah.

    • Lloydsof Rochester I guess it was closer to 5:20 about how people quit working because they thought Jesus would be coming back soon. The JW doctrine on 1975 being the year of Armageddon caused many people to leave their jobs, not attend school, give up their property, waste their retirement money etc. Watchtower’s regular implications that 1975 would bring Armageddon resulted in many Jehovah’s Witnesses firmly believing this was going to be the end.

    • I studied with them for about 2 years. Very nice people with good hearts… just caught in a lot of blasphemous doctrines. They are forbidden to research their religions past, or read anything from the “apostate literature” written by former members. It’s very hard to get out once you are in. Especially those who were born in.

  2. Wait, what!? Are you telling me that Paul DOES’NT recommend for every single Christian to go to bible college and study seminary to work as a pastor, worship leader or church staff? I thought there was no other way?

    Surely this can’t be right. Christians living normal lives? Nooooooo wayyyy

  3. Hey, I’m here just to encourage you guys to keep doing this AMAZING work that is truly so helpful!!

  4. Hello guys, I want to translate your content and take it to Portuguese speakers (Brazilian and Portuguese people). What do you think about it? is that possible?
    I’m a brazilian video editor that lives in Atlanta.

  5. Chptr 2 – It’s about the lawless one in those days – Advocating to change the appointed times and Laws ~ Remember Daniel 7;25?

    “and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; ”

    “Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction,” 2 Thess 2;3

    God’s law is perfect – Psalm 19:7

    Because we are saved we observe the law
    Not to be saved – Jer 31;31

  6. As a new Christian, just wanted to say this is an invaluable channel for building a deeper understanding of scripture and the beauty behind God’s word. Thank you, praise to the highest!
