February 5, 2022 added some new sections about some quotes from the second chapter On the Manner of Development of Man from Lower Forms in other famous and influential book by Charles Darwin the Descent of Man in which he states his deliberate or initial intention, stronger than what I was aware of before, to seek to overthrow belief in special creation (such as God's creation of and limiting reproduction of plants and animals within kinds (such as the canine or feline kind)(microevolution but not macroevolution)(by God or overwise) and instead support and promote (macro-)evolution crossing kinds or genetic boundaries and that the process Darwin invoked for evolution is natural selection as the two purposes of his writing the book The Descent of Man. He also criticizes the attempt by some in his day to the present to combine a belief in macro-evolution generally over long periods of time that attempt to use the guidance of a Creator God in the evolutionary process, including crossing kinds or genetic boundaries, instead of natural selection all in the web page Earth and It's Creatures accessible in the section Other Science and Bible Prophecy near the bottom of the home page of Spirit and Truth Ministries web site.

March 1, 2022 added some sections related to the reference to God dividing the nations in Deuteronomy 32 as instead of as in most of our English Bibles based on the Masoretic Hebrew Old Testament as numbered according to the number of the children of Israel (who came into Egypt in the time of Joseph) that were 70 people but instead that which is in the Septuagint, the ancient Greek translation of the Old Testament, that compares the number of the nations to the number of the sons or angels of God that could refer to the heavenly council of good angels and evil angels (including Satan) that are around God's throne as in Job 1 and Job 2 and who could have authority over the 70 Genesis 10 Noah nations comprising all human beings on Earth and their earthly kings, princes, presidents, prime ministers or other leaders (archon in Greek) all in web page The Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ in web section Church and Bible Prophecy
March 2, 2022 added some sections concerning the recent speech given by French Prime Minister Jean Castex that were the words of French President Emmanuel Macron who was supposed to speak, but was unable to because of being called away to address some aspect of the new Russian invasion of Ukraine that French President Macron is quite involved in getting a peaceful solution for, at the meeting of CRIF an umbrella group of French Jewish organizations in which Mr. Macron spoke out in favour of Israeli overall control of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem but in a multi-faith context including referring to his previous visits there and the Bible prophecy context that this could indicate that French president Macron could still be one of the best candidates for Antichrist including his involvement with the tribulation temple in Jerusalem according to Daniel 9:27 and other scriptures in web page The Third or tribulation Temple Part 4 in web section Israel and Bible prophecy
March 2, 2022 added section related to idea that there could be a reference to the heavens, especially the planet Venus and perhaps the planet Mars, becoming cursed from a more perfect original creation in the initial creation week in Genesis sometime between the creation of humans and the fall of the first humans Adam and Eve when Satan earlier called Lucifer or morning star in Isaiah 14 rebelled against God with some of the other stars of God (other angels) to try to take over the universe from God and could have then made the planet Venus the morning star uninhabitable from it perhaps being initially more inhabitable perhaps 6,000 to 10,000 years ago in the early history of the universe and of God's angelic and human creation rather than billions of years ago in the web section Space Science and Bible prophecy in web page The Starry Heavens

The Church (literally the called out (of the world) ones) is the people from every nation and from the Jews that the LORD or God the Father is calling out to be a special eternal people for His Son the Lord Jesus Christ. All people in the true Church have personally trusted in Jesus Christ that He is God's only begotten Son and that He died for us and our sins and rose from the dead to give us new life. When we do this we enter a personal relationship with God Himself including Jesus and become indwelt, led and taught by His Holy Spirit.
The Church Age or Dispensation began at Pentecost in about 30 AD and is almost at its completion point when there will be members of the Church from all 70 Genesis 10 from Noah and his three sons nations, peoples or people groups, languages and all tribes. Then the Church will be raptured or caught up to Heaven with new spiritual or heavenly bodies for all its members to our homes in Heaven. The Church will also have a part in ruling Earth in the Millennial Kingdom of the Messiah - Jesus and a glorious eternal future. If you are not part of it already I hope you join us while they is still the little remaining time in this Age of Grace, the Church Age or the Age of the Holy Spirit. This can be done by praying to God in Jesus' name to personally receive Jesus as your Lord and Saviour from your sins.

Currently and throughout current Church Age, one of the important aspects of the true Church and true Christian witness is to rightly divide God's word the Holy Bible including to study or teach God's word from a mostly literal and in context or exegesis intepretation rather than trying to study or teach from a substantially non-biblical perspective where one significantly tries to read non-Christian or out of context ideas into one's interpretation of a bible passage. This is usually associated with the symbolic or allegorical or eisegesis interpretation of the Bible. This type of interpreation began in earnest in Church history with efforts of the Hellenized Jewish teacher Philo in the 1st century and then the very pro-Greek philosophy church father Origen in the 3rd century to revise Bible interpretation from a literal perspective to one that would appeal to followers of Greek or Roman philosophy more and bring them into the professing Church.

A good introductory level devotional Bible to read through the Bible - the word of God in one year in a consecutive basis or in the usual order of the books is the Daily Walk Bible. The devotions in this Daily Walk Bible are in the order in the Christian Bible from Genesis to Revelation and I heartily recommend the use of the Daily Walk Bible. It is available in either the King James Version or the New International Version and is available from Amazon Books online. It is also available from at least some Christian bookstores in Canada and probably in the US or some other places to order through them or in Canada. The Daily Walk Bible is also available in the secular bookstore chain Chapters Indigo to order at their bricks and mortar stores including Coles or online through their website.
This Daily Walk Bible features at the back of it the Bible reading plan to read through the whole Bible in one year. However one feature lacking in this Bible edition is any Bible maps. At the beginning of each day's reading there is a chapter by chapter outline and brief summary. Each day's reading of usually a couple or several chapters includes one or more academic or spiritual insight notes a practical Daily Walk section with application from the day's reading for Christian living. This devotional Bible is good in that it combines emphasis on evangelism and practical Christian living with some academic notes on the background of the day's reading. The background notes are from a primarily literal and in context basis including generally rightly giving a distinction between the true Church and Israel. The true Church is God's chosen spiritual or heavenly people being called out to God from all nations in this present Church Age or Age of Grace from Pentecost 2000 years ago to the very soon coming pre-tribulation rapture to heaven of the complete true Church. This distinction of the true Church is in contrast to God's chosen earthly or physical people Israel that God focuses on on earth and for the believing remnant of them to be with God in heaven from the time of Abraham around 2000 BC to the cruxifiction of the Lord Jesus Christ (Messiah). According to a literal interpretation of the Bible God will also focus on Israel from after the rapture of the Church with the following 7 year tribulation on Earth ended by the Second Coming of Messiah Jesus to earth. The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ (Messiah) to earth will begin His and God the Father's Millennial or Messianic Kingdom on earth centred on Jerusalem and restored Israel (and the true Church and the saved of the nations.) The Daily Walk Bible does hold to the literal interpretation of the Bible including the last days restoration of Israel or/ or including the Jews to God and to their promised land of Israel.Prayer in the Church Age
For an examination of the also scriptural but probably more quickly achievable idea that the nations mentioned in the Great Commission to share the good news, of sure salvation and eternal life through God's only begotton Son Jesus Christ His death on the cross and resurrection from the dead and our trusting in Him to be our personal Lord and Saviour, to all the world being based on the 70 nations descended from Noah in the Table of Nations in Genesis 10 and 11 rather than the probably over 10,000 groups of people in the currently most popular "people group" definition of nations in the Great Commission and for some general scriptures about the Great Commission click on the following web page about the Great CommissionThe Great Commission of the Church to Evangelize the World
A good new book, published in the year 2020, about the nations in the Great Commission, as in Matthew 28:18-20, being the 70 nations descended from Noah in Genesis 10 is Names, Nations and the New Testament by author Madelyn Rose Craig.
Added in Great Commission web page: reference in Luke 8 about Christians not to cover or hide our witness for Jesus from Greek work Kaluptos which is the modern Greek work for face mask. In other words if possible Christians shouldn't wear face mask if it hinders our spoken witness for Jesus and some of the laws made by government now and encouraged by the media partly have the effect of hindering Christian witness for Jesus by forcing also Christians to wear face masks and muffle or cover our witness for Jesus to the unsaved people.12 Ministry of the Holy Spirit For Salvation in the Church Age

There is much the Bible says about the nations (meaning all nations but Israel) especially for the last days after the Church is caught up (raptured) to Heaven. Then God will work among the Jews and the nations. Sometimes the Bible speaks of nations in general and somtimes of specific nations or group of nations. Often, especially in the Old Testament, prophecies for the nations use the old names of nations that can usually be related to present people groups, nations or regions with some study.
Prophecy of Saint Malachy and Roman Catholic Popes Although I have some reservations because it is not in the Bible, there is a surprisingly accurate prophecy from St. Malachy that from his time in 1139 there would be 112 popes of which Pope John Paul 2 is third last and Pope Benedict XVI is the second last.
February 11, 2013 Resignation of Pope Benedict 16 According to Saint Malachy's Prophecy the Next Pope Will be the Last Pope Peter the Roman but as a Bible Believing Christian I Still Am Not Quite Sure What to Think of These Prophecies. By Some reports they will be more credible if the next pope is Italian.
March 13, 2013 The New Pope Has Been Chosen He is Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio from Argentinia. And he will be called Francis. Although the new pope is neither directly from Italy or named Peter, he is the son of Italian immigrants on both sides and it is significant that he has chosen the papal name Francis after Saint Francis of Asissi. This is because Saint Francis is regarded as the patron saint of Italy and part of the name of Saint Francis is Pietro or Peter after his father. Also this new pope has a reputation of being a pastor that looks after his flock and this is also a characteristic of Peter the Roman. Therefore after I looked into the situation more this new pope Francis 1 can possibly be regarded as a fulfillment of Peter the Roman that is to be the pope that leads the Roman Catholic Church into the tribulation according to Saint Malachy's prophecy but we will have to see what happens and we have to keep in mind that this prophecy isn't inspired of God like prophecies in God's word the Holy Bible.Prophecy of Saint Malachy and the Roman Catholic Church Popes

There is very much the Bible says about Israel especially its future in the last days of the world and God and Messiah's rule on Earth but I will just give you some background first. After the building of the Flood of Noah and the building of the Tower of Babel in Genesis 6 - 11 there was universal idolatry (and immorality) on Earth. Then the LORD - the One True God's solution was to separate from the nations one man and his wife Abraham and Sarah. God used them to build a godly nation for Himself that would follow His laws and be a witness to the nations of the blessings of following God's ways and trusting in Him. This nation and people through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who was renamed by God Israel is the people of Israel or the Jews. God's ways to them was the law of Moses given in the first five books of the Bible.
About 2000 years ago through Jewish geneaology and into a Jewish culture was born, lived, died for our sins, rose from the dead, and ascended into Heaven the Jewish Messiah and Saviour of the world Jesus Christ or Jesus the Messiah. At Pentecost believing Jews in the Messiah became part of the Church. After the rapture believing Jews (the remnant of Israel) will again be distinct from believing Gentiles.
In the Great Tribulaton or 70th week of Daniel God will arrange the building of a 3rd or Tribulation Temple of God for the Jews on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. He will also witness to Jews and Gentiles (people of the nations) through two special witnesses and 144,000 witnesses who will all be Jews that believe in Jesus. They will witness that Jesus was the promised Messiah and that He then will be coming soon to set up His and God's Kingdom over all the Earth ruling from Jerusalem with Israel of the Jews then the Head of the nations in fulfillment of many Bible prophecies. God will also bless Israel in eternity or that part that believes in His Messiah Jesus Christ.
I believe there is only one serious candidate for the Ark of the Covenant current location. The most likely location is under the Temple Mount perhaps under the Chamber of Wood spoken in favour by The Temple Institute and others. Possible Locations of the Ark of the Covenant
