10 FAB FACTS - 2 .
FAB FACT 11) Jesus said a tiny bit of Faith can do big things!
Jesus said if you have only a small amount of Faith, Faith as tiny as a very small mustard seed, it will grow and grow and grow, and as the seed will become a tree, big enough for birds to make their home in, you will grow and grow and grow spiritually, until you become a much stronger person in God. Indeed this may be the reason Jesus also said that such a tint seed of Faith could lift up a tree into the sea, or move a mountain, because as you grow in Faith in Jesus you might ask for big miracle and see them happen, or even as soon as you get saved!
"And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?
It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:

"Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:
Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof." Matthew 13: 31-32
"Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it?
It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it." Luke 13: 18-19

FAB FACT 12) There is a glittering sea of glass in heaven!
"And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God." Revelation 15:2 .
FAB FACT 13) The bible tells us that, before the Flood at the time of Noah, there was a water vapour canopy surrounding the Earth. This may have made the temperature move even across the world? This may have been brought down in the Noahic Flood?
"And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so." Genesis 1:7 .
"In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened." Genesis 7:11 .
FAB FACT 14) Everyone in the new Paradise on Earth, will be given a secret name by God, and it will be written in a white stone.
"He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it." Revelation 2:17 .
White stones and black stones were also used for votes in the ancient world. Some say the white stone symbolizes that you are made as white as snow by Jesus, and only because of this you get the "yes" vote from God. This secret name you will be given will be part of your personal intimate love relationship with God!
FAB FACT 15) Top secret thunder! In the Book of Revelation it says that the only two men who know what "the seven thunders said" are Jesus and Saint John, as the angel told Saint John not to write what they said. But Jesus was not just a man, he was also God in the flesh, who came to Earth to save us from our sins, as he is kind, loving, and not willing that any should perish, if a person believes and repents.
"And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not."
Revelation 10: 1-4 .
So why did God tell us what the 7 vial, 7 bowls and seven trumpets were, but kept secret what the 7 thunders said? Perhaps God was simply reminding us all, that without him, we would not know what was going to happen in the future? Or perhaps one day some wise man or women will have it revealed from God what they said, so we can all know? What do you think?

So David Braid told everyone to play it safe and believe in Jesus alone for salvation, and to repent! So they could all escape the sinking of our sinful society!
