Paul, Signs and Seasons

Paul did not provide a detailed outline of the “signs and seasons.” Instead, considering the future, he exhorted believers to live righteously now .  Did the Apostle Paul instruct believers to know the “ times and seasons ” so they could calculate the timing of the “end” and the return of Jesus? In fact, considering that Christ will arrive “ like a thief in the night ,” he exhorted the Thessalonians to live righteously as the “ sons of the light ,” and to “ watch and be sober ” - [ Photo by JESHOOTS.COM on Unsplash ].

John Came to be in Spirit

Four different times in Revelation, John found himself “in the Spirit” and transported to a new location where he received another vision .  In the fourth chapter of Revelation , John “ came to be in the spirit , where he was summoned to heaven to see a vision about the “ throne ,” the “ sealed scroll ,” and the “ slain Lamb .” Previously, in his first vision, he came to be “ in the spirit ” and saw a vision of “ one like a son of man ” standing among the “ seven golden lampstands ,” that is, the “ seven churches of Asia .” - [ Photo by Frank Zinsli on Unsplash ].
