ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: why do u say that?
Metalhead933: idk just thought it was creepy
Metalhead933: u read any more me story?
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: no not rly sry... but i want to get back to this "creepy" thing
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: do u kno wut it's about?
Metalhead933: not really no
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: have u ever heard of revelation?
Metalhead933: isnt that the book about the apocolipse?
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: it's the last book in the bible, where jesus is suppose to come bak for the second time and take up all the believers to heaven
Metalhead933: yea and wat happens to every one else?
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: and this person (in the story on my profile) was probably one of those ppl who heard the word and never excepted it
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: they have to stay on the earth for the next seven years where there will be turmoil and natural disasters
Metalhead933: wat happens after 7 years?
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: the anti christ will come and make a "false peace"
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: he will tell everyone he is god and persectute the christians (the ones who are now realizing the truth)
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: that's during the seven yrs still
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: then after those seven years of desrtuction jesus will come down and destroy the anit christ (also known as satan) and bring up all the ppl who chosed to believe during the 7 seven years and the rest will be destroyed along with the devil
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: jesus will then destroy the earth, create a new one and rule on it
Metalhead933: now ive got a hypothetical for ya
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: and it will be perfect like heaven
Metalhead933: say some one relizes that hey the bible says after seven years the devil pretends to be God. and they dont get fooled by the antichrist and they escape persecution?
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: escape persecusion during the anit christ's rule tiem u mean?
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: well see the anti christ is the devil so most likely u will not escape his wrath but there will be ways the new foudn believers will try and help eachother
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: but it's amazing all the horrors that will happen during the seven years
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: and all the terrible things the anti christ will do to the christians
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: like ther will be this thing called the sign of the beast. everyone must get it in order to get food and such but the christians must not take it b/c it's evil and that means that the devil has marked u with his sign
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: which is also known as 666
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: but if they dont' take it they will go through torturous things b/c they are standing up for their lord
Metalhead933: see wat i mean...creepy
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: see God has given us so much time to except him and one day he's just goin to say "that's enough" and we can no longer wait. it says like he will come like a thief in the night and take us up, no one knows when he will, and we must be ready and expect him... it could be tomorrow
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: sure it's creepy... for the ppl who aren't sure if they are being taken up or not
Metalhead933: ::raises hand::
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: i have full faith in christ so even if i was taken up in the next few seconds i would not be afriad
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: go ahead
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: u raised ur hand, ask ur question
Metalhead933: ::raises hand:: like im afraid
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: awww well now is the time to figure out if u really believe in christ or not, b/c the time could be any time
Metalhead933: i see
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: and hearing this i'm not afraid for myself but for my friends who don't believe or are unsure, like u. i care about all of you so much sometimes i cry myself to sleep thinkin,if i wke up the next morning in heaven will you be there
Metalhead933: its just like my hart says he exists but my brain says no.
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: i kno wut u mean, but my mom was just telling me it gets dangerous when u start questioning God like that
Metalhead933: its true
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: it's like ... being a child really. ur trying to figure out something so much, like why you can't fly, and b/c ur so small u get frustrated, but u dont' relize that God knows all,m he is our father who has gone through so much more than us
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: who are we to question the almighty when we only use about half of our brain?
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: we don't kno all and we havent' experienced all like our parents so who are we to say we know better
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: that's where faith comes in
Metalhead933: yet the fight between faith and science rages in my head
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: well the question is are you goin to trust science, whcih once said it was impossible to fly, or the Lord God who loves you more than anything and as it says in the bible "only has plans to prosper you and not to harm you"
Metalhead933: believe me i want to believe in God. i try so much and some times i really believe it and other times im realling questioning it
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: yea i know wut u mean, the world has trained us to base our trust on the more we see and hear the more it's real, it's one of the devil's ways of leading us astray
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: wut exactly are you questioning
Metalhead933: its like i know that if there is a God that it is Jesus. but then there is the use of the word if
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: wut do u mean?
Metalhead933: i dont know that there is a God at all
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: and if there was one wut would convince u that there was?
Metalhead933: i dont know. some kind of proof not provided by man
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: so if a person say... healed a person of canser right in front of ur face and said he was God u would believe him?
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: well that's practically wut jesus did thousands of years ago
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: and peopel still didn't believe him! lol
Metalhead933: but how am i suppossed to believe the word of the bible when it was created by man who is fallible
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: how are you suppose to believe it with our own eyes when ppl still didn't believe him back then?
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: we have to have faith that it happened. jesus was God's last chance on the world
Metalhead933: and somehow i know that the seven year period is wat it would take for me to truely believe
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: he gave the egyptians moses and all those miracles, he gave them other miracles by others and even adam and eve he approached just as himself
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: so ur willing to go through all that?
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: all that pain?
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: when u can just believe and he will except u?
Metalhead933: not willing. but i know me. and im thick.
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: lol and GOd knows you, he knows everything about you... now he just wants you to get to know him a little and give a little trust
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: ppl wonder why he just doesn't coem down and proclaim he is God himself but as he says in teh bible he is too awesome that one look at him and you would die
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: since adam and eve sinned God had to be seperated from them for he cannot be with sin
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: and so he is seperated from us
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: until we believe in him and his son
Metalhead933: and that is wat im trying to do
Metalhead933: by having that fight in my head. until there is a winner
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: ...and what if that time never comes
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: ... i'd know i'd cry so much... and always have that guilt that i just couldn't help
Metalhead933: i have to just believe that it will.
Metalhead933: help wat?
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: give you some miracle to help you believe..
Metalhead933: u do help
Metalhead933: these convo's help
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: :-)... i'm glad and i will be so happy to talk about this any time u do and answer quetions u have the best i can
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: i kno u haven't had the best past with girls but this is one who isn't going away
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: do u have any other questions
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: lol take ur time
Metalhead933: u know who ive always felt a strong connection to in the bible?
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: and why is that?
Metalhead933: i could always just relate to him
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: lol can't be more spesific? like any certain points or events?
Metalhead933: last supper
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: ... go on
Metalhead933: he denied God three times
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: so ur saying the likeness in wanting to believe but not wanting to admit it?
Metalhead933: kind of. but i think if i were an apostle i would have cought on a lil faster. but even then Peter was always the first to understand
Metalhead933: to understand God
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: lol yea i see your point
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: u mean to understand jesus?
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: no that they're the same person but u know wut i mean
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: *not that their not the same person
Metalhead933: yea. its like everytime i hear a story about peter i think thats wat i would have done
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: sry i really cna't type
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: lol yea but in the end he knows the truth and becomes a witness for jesus
Metalhead933: and dies for him in an almost = groosome way
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: o yea u can't forget that either
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: it's amazing wut lengths they went for God, and it gives me strenth
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: like if they could do it, why can't i just even stand up for my beliefs in class, whcih i've been mroe able to do recently
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: well i g2g for now but i'll talk to ya lata
ImCmplc8dGtOvrIt: ttyl, and i'll be sure to read more of ur story real soon
Metalhead933: lol nite
