  1. wow.. ive been watching. since genesis… oh wow. its like a cycle. even with alll their failures. God still has a promise … shows mercy. and never changes, always the loving Father.

  2. The New Heaven and New Earth is a metaphor for the Body of Christ. Old Covenant Jerusalem had a physical Temple with a Law written on stone. God removed the Temple in 70AD. Today, the Temple and the Law is in your heart. Jesus even stated plainly before his execution that his Kingdom was not of this world.

    *Luke **17:20**-21*
    Being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, he answered them, ‚ÄúThe kingdom of God is not coming in ways that can be observed, nor will they say, ‚ÄėLook, here it is!‚Äô or ‚ÄėThere!‚Äô for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you.‚ÄĚ

  3. Ohhh come on brother…. in a futuristic vision you don’t draw charriots and horses… in this way you remain in the past… Let me help you!Let’s read again from¬†KJV Now in my humble opinion I will write with big characters what I consider you’ve missed:I will¬†”jump in” here and there…Joel 2:3”A FIRE¬†DEVOURED BEFORE THEM; and BEHIND THEM A FLAME BURNETH”2:4”The¬†appearence of them¬†IS AS¬†THE APPEARENCE OF HORSES;¬†AND AS¬†HORSEMEN, so shall they RUN.”2:5”LIKE THE NOISE OF CHARIOTS on the tops of mountains shall they leap, LIKE THE NOISE OF A FLAME OF FIRE THAT DEVOURETH the stubble, as a strong People¬†SET in battle ARRAY.”2:7-8…”and they shall march EVERYONE IN HIS WAYS, and they SHALL NOT BREAK THEIR RANKS: NEITHER SHALL ONE TRUST ANOTHER; THEY SHALL WALK EVERYONE ON HIS PATH: and when they fall UPON THE SWORD, THEY SHALL NOT BE WOUNDED.”2:9”THEY SHALL RUN TO AND FRO IN THE CITY; THEY SHALL RUN UPON THE WALL…”So as we can see here brother there were not horses and horsemen but ”as the appearence” of them!I think we will have to get an futuristic Image¬†minimum something¬†like in¬†”MAD MAX”Also they will run on the walls, Obvioustly they will not trust each other but still keep together like those bikers, also the noise of their engines… I am sure that those prophets of God¬†watched trough¬†very many… Windows of time!¬†What do you think??

  4. WOW! So cool! I was studying to teach Joel to teens at Camp and this is the PERFECT intro. Thank you so much for using your gifts so that we can understand God’s Word! You guys are a blessing!!!!

  5. As a visual learner, I feel like I’m getting more out of these videos than reading the bible alone. May God bless you, +TheBibleProject and may the Spirit of God guide you to make more videos.

  6. The words written was inspired by God not taken from other prophets as you keep saying. Just because two prophets speak the same thing doesn’t mean they are copying or stealing each other’s prophecies. God can be speaking the same thing to both.
