Scripture verses this conversation reminded me of

  ...If I could insert what these conversations reminded me of, ...


BC   All generated by the A.I., all here right now.
      So now we go back to the Antichrist;
      How is this guy gonna make an announce? 6500 different languages
 around the world!
      He hits a button, here goes this image;  and it speaks instantly all different languages!
      Gary, that technology is right now!
GS  And now I'm looking at my King James Bible;
      "A mouth speaking great things
       ...and the image of the beast..."!
BC   Yeah
GS    There it is!
BC   Right.  And so, what's the point?
      Man! If that's the event that will happen "IN" the 7 years tribulation,
      and we see the techinology for the first time in history of mankind "here &
 now" and now coming,
      Then logically, how much closer is the rapture of the Church which happens prior.So if you're a Christian, get busy living for the Lord; get busy sharing the Gospel. But if you're not a Christian, man, there is only one way out of this mess.( It's not the ___(bug?)out of the shelter... It's Jesus Christwhat did he say?)?

GS   We talked about this before we ccame on today, and
       People can get tired of being told that the Rapture is around at the corner.
       You know after a few years they'd say, "Oh, I'm not in for looking for it any more."
       But we are seeing things unfold at break-neck speed;
       It can't be much longer, and I ma walking "by Faith" in the soon coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, and ...
      If He doesn't come during my life, FINE!  I am not disappointed because "the blessed hope" lends a kind of quality to your life that is just absent if you're not expecting the Lord's return at any moment.

   This last Rev.Stearman's statement reminded me of a few verses from my Bible...(Whomever I mention or quote or subscribe to or whatever seem to be eyed by a shadow something from below, and begin to receive malicious contents, but I had to mention this Youtube in order to give credit to whom the credit is due. That's all, shadow people or whatever!so please don't attack them, and me.)
   It is not only a help specifically when the thought of the Pre-Trib Rapture may evade us, as in this context that these verses can be applied, but whenever we go through times of the testing of our Faith, I thought these Scriptures keep us see through the tests that can come (and go!).
   These verses below are a help during the times when the test enquires our hearts to check the quality of our Faith, and if it is in the right place other than a wrong place.  Or it could be when our Faith climbs up from the infant stage to yet closer to the heart of our Heavenly Father In Jesus Christ:
   I think the kind of Faith, if it's the beginning of our walk of Faith in Jesus, I might say it's perhaps permissible to have a sort of Faith only to want to gain what we want, if an expectation of "something nice to come our way" develops our faith with it, because all good and perfect gifts are from above, but yet in terms of our maturing Faith, closeness to our Creator God Our Heavenly Father, and to walk the path to our "Master" Lord Jesus Christ(Matt 10:24-25*) matters, we begin to be pushed from "gaining our object of expectation" to desiring for "the closeness and beholding Him", in other words, from "getting" from Him to "worshipping" Him, these verses would help us in such testing times.

These verses are firstly:
[N/B: In case someone (probably nearby) have read too much in to my article,... Verses such as Hab.3:17 ; Job 23:8-9 below are NOT necessarily indicating how "I" am now at all. These are hypothetical parts of the verses. People of the Bible are basically/usually quite well off- this is due to God's Faithfulness, but we also go through a lot of stuff also abundantly. -Added in AM,15th,March,2020. ]

1,  Habakkuk 3:17-19

17.  Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be
no herd in the stalls:
18.  Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.
19.  The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.

And then
2, Job 23:8-12
           8 Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him:
9 On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him:
10  But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold. 
11  My foot hath held his steps, his way have I kept, and not declined. 
12  Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food. 
3, Job 13:15-16
Job 13:15  Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him. 
Job 13:16  He also shall be my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not come before him.

Above *
 Matthew 10:24-25
24  The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.
25  It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?

  I think becoming an Evangelist is not a call to "ALL" Christians ( This NEVER MEANT I was "against" Evangelism" !!! I meant NOT everyone is called to "talk" and "explain" ..but as our right hands might not know but our left hands might be leading people to Salvation and we might not know about it-not necessarily intentionally doing something or speaking as a part of Evangelistic activity.)...In fact, the Bible tells us "to do the will of the Father.(Mt.7:21)".  Also our right hand doesn't have to know what our left hand is doing(Mt.6:3= was about Alms giving, not about evangelism or fulfilling of the Calling(s)...though giving is one of The Call to those who are called to(Ro12:8). . BTW, There is a case when an attacker screamed out about someone's almsgiving "against" the giver's will.)...

21. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

3. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

8. Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.
