That God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost are three separate and distinct persons, each with a personal body, soul, and spirit ? They are three persons (1 John 5:7, 8; Matt. 28:19). Two and three of these have been seen with separate bodies with the same eyes at the same time (Dan. 7:9-14; 10:5-7; Acts 7:54-59; Rev.4:2-4; 5:1-7; 22:4, 5; Matt. 3:16, 17). If there are three separate persons, then all three would have to have separate body, soul, and spirit, as is true of any three persons we could as an example.

That one man will rule the world soon and he will not be the Antichrist ? The first and only universal ruler of the Earth since Adam fell, will be the Lord Jesus Christ who will come from Heaven with the armies of Heaven and seize the governments of this world in one day and reign forever (Zech. 14:1-21; Isa. 9:6, 7; Dan. 2:44; 7:13, 14, 18, 27; Luke 1:32, 33; Rev. 11:15; 19:11-21; 20:1-10; 1 Cor. 15:24-28; Eph. 1:10).

That there are different degrees of punishment in He11 and rewards in Heaven ? Jesus taught that it will be more tolerable for some in the day of judgment than for others (Matt. 11:20-24) ; that some will be found to be twofold more a child of He11 than others, and will receive " greater ****ation " (Matt. 23:14, 15) ; and that every man will be judged according to his works (Matt. 10:41, 42; 16:27; Rom. 14:10-12; 2 Cor. 5:10, 11; Rev. 22:12).

That blood will soon flow up to the horses' bridles ? This will literally be true at the Battle of Armageddon which will be fought at the second coming of Jesus Christ in the near future ( Rev. 14:14-21; 19:11-21; Ezek. 38:17-21; Zech. 14:1-21 ).

That all true saints will be exempt in the last day wars ? The reason for this will be that they will be translated to Heaven before the last two wars. These last two wars will fought after the Antichrist comes. These two wars will fought after the first of three wars, which brings about the formation of the ten kingdoms (Dan. 7:23, 24) and after the rapture of the church (2 Thess. 2:7, 8; Rev. 4:1).

THAT GOD LIVED SOMEWHERE BEFORE HE CREATED THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH ? This clear from the fact that He is " from everlasting to everlasting " ( Ps. 90:2 ). If He had no beginning and the Heaven and the Earth did have , as stated in Gen 1:1 then God lived somewhere else before they were created. Where He lived is not revealed so we do not need to concern ourselves about that secret of God according to Deut. 29:29.

THAT YOU ARE IN ETERNITY NOW ? Eternity will be made up of time as we know it; so if time continues eternally as it is now, in the sense of being in eternal time we are now in eternity. not meaning that we are now in our eternal state, for that will not be true until we enter into immortality ( 1 Cor. 15:51-58; Phil. 3:20, 21 ). But we can truly say that we are in time that will be eternal and that we are in part of eternity now.

That God's glory will be seen again on Earth eternally as it was seen in Israel in the days of old. This means there will be a pillar of fire by night and a pillar of a cloud by day that will be seen by men when Christ reigns forever on Earth. This is what is predicted in Isa. 4:4, 5; Ezek. 43:1-7.

That there are five horsemen of the first four seals of Revelation instead of four as generally taught . There are four, a white, a red, a black, and a pale ( Green ) horse mentioned and then the account says that "He11 followed with him," that is followed the green horse. If there are four with He11 following the fourth, then there must be five. Both Death and He11 are referred to here as being two separate entities, so must be symbolized by two separate horsemen.

THAT THE SOUL DOES NOT SLEEP IN THE GRAVE AFTER DEATH This is proved by Scripture, all passages used to teach soul-sleep really refer to the body, which alone ,sees corruption and goes to the grave. This is clear from an examination of all passages that speak of the dead knowing nothing in the grave. according to James 2:26, it is the body only that dies; and therefore this is the only thing that is put in the grave. The souls go to two different places where they are conscious after death.

Question for a bible trivia fan such as yourself. Why is there and can there not be such a thing as “Good Friday” as it pertains to Jesus being crucified?
THAT CHRIST WAS CRUCIFIED ON WEDNESDAY INSTEAD OF FRIDAY

This is clear from the fact that He was fully THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS in He11 while His body was in the tomb ( Matt. 12:40; Eph. 4:7-11; Ps. 16:10 ) and that He arose early the first day of the week, which was after sunset Saturday ( Matt
. 28:1; Mark 16:1, 2; Luke 24:1-6; John 20:1-10 ). If He had been buried on Friday before sunset He would have been in the grave only ONE NIGHT AND ONE DAY and this would make Jesus Himself a liar, for He said He would be there THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS . This proves that He was crucified on Wednesday and was put in the tomb before sunset that day. He remained dead Wednesday night, Thursday night, Friday night, and Saturday. He was resurrected soon after sunset Saturday, for He had been resurrected before early morning of the first day, Sunday, as explained in the above passages. Therefore we had better observe a " Good Wednesday " festival instead of a " Good Friday " one. ( Hope this helps ! )

Very good. Not many people get that one. Kinda like everyone thinking Sunday is the sabbath or not knowing Sunday is the first day of the week per scripture. It’s all right there in black and white.

After explaining it I’ve been asked more than a few times what’s it matter?” Like you mentioned, it matters because when asked for a sign the only one Jesus would give them was the 3 days, so it matters.

That there is more than one paradise mention in Scripture.
One paradise is mention as the place where Christ and the penitent thief went, which was in the lower parts of the Earth ( Luke 23:43; Matt. 12:40; Eph. 4:7-11; Ps. 16:10 ). Another paradise is mention as being in the third Heaven ( 2 Cor. 12:1-3 ). Then the garden of Eden is generally understood to be a paradise ( Gen. 2:8-25; 3:1-19 ).

THAT THREE SEPARATE AND DISTINCT PERSONS OF THE GODHEAD ARE NOW CARRYING OUT GOD'S PLAN OF CREATION AND REDEMPTION OF ALL THINGS ?

The Bible is very clear that there are three separate and distinct persons in the Godhead: That they all existed as separate beings from all eternity; that they were all capable of doing the same things; and that they all took separate parts in the creation and redemption of all things. All three had part in the drafting of God's plan. God's plan is revealed in three distinct parts, and it is now being carried out by three distinct persons. One person, now call the Father because He had a Son, took the first or headship part and commanded what was to be done. This is revealed in both Testaments David said, " THOU ART EXALTED AS THE HEAD OF ALL " ( 1 Chron. 29:11 ). Paul said of saints, " ye are Christ's and Christ's is God's " ( 1 Cor. 3:23 ). He also said, " I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the HEAD OF CHRIST IS GOD " ( 1 Cor. 11:3 ). this proves that Christ and God the Father are two distinct persons as much as are man and woman.
Any person, now called the Son because he had a Father, took the second or representative part in the creation and redemption of all things. God the Father created and redeemed by Jesus Christ. We are told that " All things were made by him . . . the world was made by him . . . God created all things by Jesus Christ . . . by him all things were created . . . by whom also he [the Father] made [planned] the worlds " ( ages, John 1:3, 10; Eph. 3:9; Col. 1:15-18; Heb. 1:1-3 ). Then too, it is by Jesus Christ that God redeems the world to Himself ( John 3:16; 17:4; 2 Cor. 5:17-21; 1 Pet. 2:24 ).
Still another person, now called the Holy Spirit to distinguish Him from the Father and from the Son, took the third part of direct operation in the creation and redemption of all things. It was the Holy Spirit that brooded upon the face of the deep and operated at the command of God in restoring the Earth to a habitable state ( Gen. 1:21; Job 33:4 ). It was the Holy Spirit that came upon Mary and by whom she conceived the Son of God ( Luke 1:35 ). It was the Holy Spirit that has operated in the lives of all men of all ages, bringing about the work of redemption in their lives and giving them power to carry out the will of God ( Acts 3:21; 2 Pet. 1:21; John 3:3-5; 14:16, 17, 26; 15:26; 16:7-15; Acts 10:38 ). We can say that God the Father redeems by the sacrifice of Christ and through the direct power of the Holy Spirit.

That the large oceans will cease to exist within 1000 to 1100 years? At the end of the thousand years' reign of Christ the Earth will be purified by fire. The oceans will cease to exist, for John saw no more sea in the New Earth ( Rev. 21:1, 2 ). The Millennium is not far off. In fact prophecies are being fulfilled now that prove we are at the very end of this age of grace. When Christ comes there will be only 1000 years before the Earth will be made new and without most of it being under water.

That the great American desert will soon be like the garden of Eden? Many Scriptures teach that the desert shall blossom like a rose and waters shall spring forth in the desert during the Millennium ( Isa.35:1-8; 43:19). After that the whole Earth will be made new and like a beautiful garden (Isa. 65:17; 66:22-24; 2 Pet. 3:13; Rev. 21-22 ).

THAT THE RIGHTEOUS ARE IN A CONSCIOUS STATE OF BLISS BETWEEN DEATH AND RESURRECTION. This was true of Lazarus and all the Old Testament saints who were held captive in the lower parts of the Earth before Christ captured them and led them to Heaven when He ascended on high ( Luke 16:19-31; Matt. 12:40; Eph. 4:7-11; Heb. 2:14-15 ). This was true of Moses who appeared with Christ on the mount while his body was in corruption in Moab ( Matt. 17:3; Deut. 34:5-6; Jude 9 ). This will be true of the future martyrs of the tribulation ( Rev. 6:9-11 ). And this will be true of all who die in Christ now and and go to Heaven until the resurrection ( 2 Cor. 5:8; Phil. 1:21-23; 1 Thess. 4:16 ).

That Satan will be bound for 1000 years and sin will still continue on the Earth

It is hard for some to understand how sin will continue on the Earth during the time that Satan will be bound for the 1000 years of Rev. 20:1-10, but this is easy to understand when we see that sin is transgression of the law and that men will still be free moral agents during that time. There will be laws to obey in the Millennium just as there are today and men will become sinners by transgressing them just as they do today. That there will be sinners in the Millennium is clear from Isa. 65:20-25; 1 Cor. 15:24-28; Rev. 20:7-10; Zech. 14:16-21 ).
