Please understand that although this is your position and understanding, it does not equate to being scriptural or doctrinal. Just a few days ago in another we have another member (schooldad3) indicate these are animals that live in the middle east region and they being described for the readers to understand the kingdoms as they are geographically associated with these regions where the animals live. You make interesting points and while possible, they are not absolute.
The lion is the United Kingdom, the eagle’s wings are the United States, the bear is Russia and the leopard is Germany. In the New Testament, a lion is a lion but describes nine different things (Daniel 7:3-4, 5-6, 7)
Maybe, maybe not
The iron and clay empire (Daniel 2:33-34) of the British lion, Russian Bear and German leopard merge into the 10 king Beast
Then perhaps they are not facts! I have been on this site for 4+ years now and what you state is exactly the opposite in my experience here. Maybe other places its not this way, but not true here on Unsealed. Most try to prove the pre-Trib point to the Nth degree, not those holding to other resurrection views that come much later down the line in timing. Please refrain from disparaging remarks towards brothers and sisters who see the resurrection & rapture in a different sequence than you do. Please refrain from insisting on your view of something as right and others as wrong. Please refrain from calling future prophetic events as fact, when in FACT they are not fact until they occur. What you have here is a clear violation of rule #3 of this forum. Refrain from this
But what I find is people who do not understand the facts that we do, that the Rapture is Pre Trib are always trying to prove their points to the nth degree. Whereas if I find out you are different in your thinking I am not going to o out of my way to point out every time I see you in error, because I know I am right, its not faith per se, the Holy Spirit leads us unto all truth, its just not a belief as I see it, so I am not willing to debate it on a continual basis. But what I see with the other side is they have to make sure they let us know we are wrong at every chance, even though we are right.
Perhaps I refuse to understand this too. I dont exclusively speak of the capital T (Tribulation) as Daniels 70th week. In fact I think this approach is incorrect as the 70th week would mean 7 years, and since (in my experience) most pre-Trib thinkers equate the second half, 3.5 years as capital T (great Trib) there seems to be conflict in the statement. Perhaps you didnt mean it this way, however the other piece of "refusing to understand" is that other people do not hold a pre-trib rapture position as for many it is not scriptural. Please consider that others see this time frame differently than you and respect that the position of "other than pre-Trib" is also a valid point of view.
You also refuse to understand that when someone talks of the Tribulation with a capital T they are speaking of Daniel's 70th week.
