Dear MIQ/Amazing Facts,
I have quite a few questions, but my main question is the first question below.
When or what is the modern day abomination of desolation, and how does it apply to us?
(Please correct me if I am wrong below)
I know that the abomination of desolation is when the pagan armies are desecrating the Holy place, (Which I read was Jeruslaem…) by standing within a few meters of the land, surrounding the walled area of Jerusalem. I also read, that the first time the armies surrounded the walls of Jerusalem they mysteriously disappeared, and that, that was the sign that the true children of God must run to the mountains, but if not; they would be killed, after a few months or years the armies returned and besieged the city of Jerusalem. But my other question is when do we have to run to the mountains? Was Jesus presenting an end-time prophecy in Matthew, or was he presenting a prophecy that fulfilled and finished in (AD 70)? Does this occur after the gospel has been preached to all the
How do I know when to get baptised? I've been thinking about it a lot lately and I'm not sure if I should, I'm kinda scared because usually you have to do a speech or say your testimony to everyone in your church and I really don't want to do that... and do you actually HAVE to get baptised? Is it preferred? Will I not go to heaven if I don't?
Me and my best friend just had a fight about baptising infants. He was baptised when he was born and I haven't yet made the decision. He was saying that his parents wanted an early start for him to live a godly life, but isn't baptism about personally making the decision about committing your life with Jesus and washing yourself clean from your sins? I'm pretty sure babies haven't really sinned, and they can't make that big of a choice, like I knew someone at my old church who had been married to her christian husband for about 25 years and only just getting baptised after all this time, I doubt babies can make that sort of choice. But he's standing his ground and making me feel really miserable, I just dont get how a baby can get baptised, I've found bible verses for him and he still isn't giving in, what do I do? Am I right?
what is the age gap in a relationship? I've always been curious but i never got the answer i desired. for Abraham was 10 years older than Sarah and i wanted to know if the same age gap still apllies or is it changed.
What does the bible say about the lost when they see Jesus at His return? I've heard that they would die, and the saints would be taken to heaven for a thousand years while Satan roams the earth, and then the lost will make a final attempt to overtake the holy city, which will end in their destruction. But is that true? If so, where does the bible say this?
