The events of the Bible that are repeated

30 Thus the LORD saved Israel that day from the hand of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the seashore. 31 Israel saw the great power that the LORD used against the Egyptians, so the people feared the LORD, and they believed in the LORD and in his servant Moses. (Exodus 14:30-31)

14 “Therefore, son of man, prophesy, and say to Gog, Thus says the Lord GOD: On that day when my people Israel are dwelling securely, will you not know it 15 You will come from your place out of the uttermost parts of the north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great host, a mighty army. 16 You will come up against my people Israel, like a cloud covering the land. In the latter days I will bring you against my land, that the nations may know me, when through you, O Gog, I vindicate my holiness before their eyes. (Ezekiel 38:14-16)
18 But on that day, the day that Gog shall come against the land of Israel, declares the Lord GOD, my wrath will be roused in my anger. (Ezekiel 38:18)
22 With pestilence and bloodshed I will enter into judgment with him, and I will rain upon him and his hordes and the many peoples who are with him torrential rains and hailstones, fire and sulfur. (Ezekiel 38:22)

7 And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will come out to deceive the nations that are at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle; their number is like the sand of the sea. 9 And they marched up over the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, but fire came down from heaven and consumed them. (Revelation 20:7-9)

23 From one New Moon to another and from one Sabbath to another, all mankind will come and bow down before me," says the LORD. 24 And they will go out and look upon the dead bodies of those who rebelled against me; their worm will not die, nor will their fire be quenched, and they will be loathsome to all mankind. (Isaiah 66:23-24)

There is a correlation between Exodus 14:30-31, Ezekiel 38:14-16, Ezekiel 38:18, Ezekiel 38:22, Isaiah 66:23-24 and Revelation 20:7-9. This correlation always concerns the same concept, that is, the glory that goes to God when the formation of the unjust succumbs to the formation of the just. Such types of events make know the power of God. When the Egyptians were covered by the waters of the Red sea, the Israelites whom God had just freed from Egyptian slavery and who were fleeing from the Pharaoh's army, witnessed this event that glorified God.
In Ezekiel 38:14, Gog is the antichrist, that is, the first beast of Revelation chapter 13, that shortly before the return of Christ, along with other nations, will attack Israel. As we can see, the passages of Ezekiel refer to an event similar to that of the death of the Egyptians drowned in the sea, when they were chasing the Israelites. This event of Ezekiel will also make sure that the living Israelites at that time will convert to Christ (Romans 11:24). After Christ's return, the first resurrection of all the just lived in all ages will take place. After the first resurrection there will be the rapture of the resurrected ones and of those still alive at that time that will inherit eternal life (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:4-5 ); and all the unjust in life at that time will die (Matthew 25:41). The earth and the rest of the universe will be created new (Revelation 21:1; Isaiah 66:22; 2 Peter 3:10-13), and the new earth will be ready to welcome all the just caught up after the return of Christ (Revelation 21:2-3).
After a thousand years, the second resurrection of all the unjust lived in all ages will take place. The nations Gog and Magog are the unjust. Nations are groups of people, therefore all nations of any age. The nations are symbolically called Gog and Magog. I want to point out that this is not the same event of Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39, which describe Gog of the land of Magog, ie the antichrist, who together with various nations will attack Israel before the return of Jesus.
All these billions and billions of people will be attracted to go toward the beloved city, that is, the new Jerusalem came down out of heaven a thousand years before (Revelation 21:2), and toward the camp of the saints, which will probably be all around the city, with the wall of 144 cubits which separates it from the outside (Revelation 21:17). The new Jerusalem will be a cube with the side of 12,000 stadia, which is equivalent to 2,220 kilometers (Revelation 21:16). Being a cube with the side of 2,220 kilometers, the new Jerusalem will be visible from anywhere on earth. All the unjust who will resurrect on the new earth without sea (Revelation 21:1), will be attracted to this colossal-sized structure, and will move toward it. At a certain point, the fire will come down from heaven, which will burn all the unjust who will die for the second time. This is the second death (Revelation 20:14; Revelation 21:8).
Isaiah 66:23-24 describes the people who will go out of the new Jerusalem and perhaps even from the camp of the saints, after the fire will burn all the resurrected unjust. In fact, as the verse itself says, the dead bodies of people who rebelled against God are all the people who have died on the way that leads to destruction. Being died on the way that leads to destruction, they have died as people rebellious toward God. When the just will go out, they will see the vast expanse of dead bodies covering the ground. The sight of the visible corpses will probably be limited, since the eyes of the just who are outside can not see the whole surface of the earth covered with dead bodies; in fact, Revelation 20:9 says that the unjust marched over the broad plain of the earth.
The expanse of corpses that will see the righteous, will be a loathsome in their eyes, just because they will see an expanse of corpses. The unjust, having been killed by the fire that will come down from heaven, will burn for a long period of time, and besides that they will be eaten by worms for a long period of time. These concepts do not refer to the fact that the unjust will go to another dimension where they will be tormented for eternity. The worm that will not die and the fire that will not be quenched only describe an indefinitely long period of time in which, given the immensity of corpses that will cover the surface of the earth, the worms will have many carcasses to eat and the fire will have much "fuel" to burn. The event of Revelation 20:7-9, like the others, will bring glory to God. This is also the reason (perhaps the principal) for which God will make the unjust resurrect and then make them die for the second time. The concept of the glory that God makes known to the just also through these events is described in Romans 9:22-23:

22 What if God, choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath--prepared for destruction 23 What if he did this to make the riches of his glory known to the objects of his mercy, whom he prepared in advance for glory.

The world population in this year is at around 7.6 Billion persons. The estimated world population in 82 years, in the year 2100, is at around 11.3 Billion.

Persons who are 20 years in this year will most likely not be here in the year 2100.

Preparing for the future, for our loved ones by teaching, equipping, instructing and all the other 'useful' and 'practical' Christian tools that individuals can apply to their own children might help many in the year 2100, 82 years from now, be equipped as a member in The Body of Christ.

If the world doesn't kill me, time will. Well, up to now, it has been. Daily dying by murder. Yes, The Lord loves All.

Is baptism necessary for salvation?

While we should preach that all people are commanded to repent and be baptized (Acts 2:38), adding any other requirement to salvation by grace, it becomes salvation by works in disguise.
Even though numerous Scriptures speak of the importance of water baptism, adding anything to the work of the cross demeans the sacrifice of the Savior. It implies that His finished work wasn't enough. But the Bible makes clear that we are saved by grace, and grace alone: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9).
Baptism is simply a step of obedience to the Lord following our repentance. Any obedience such as baptism, evangelization, the Lord's Supper, etc., issues from our faith in Christ. Salvation is not what we do, but Who we have: "He that has the Son has life; and he that has not the Son of God has not life." (1 John 5:12).

But what about Mark 16:16?

Mark 16:16 quotes Jesus as saying: “He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.” Does this mean that salvation is by baptism? In no way does this verse establish baptism as a condition for salvation; it is merely the declaration that those who believe and are baptized are saved. Any act of obedience to the Lord could be added after the expression 'whoever believes' and it would remain a true statement, because salvation is the result of faith in Christ.
If baptism was necessary for salvation, there are many significant verses which should be amended to read 'you are saved through faith and baptism.' It is clear that faith in Jesus Christ is what saves a person. (Acts 16:30-31; Ephesians 2:8-9).

Congratulations!!! We made it into 2018. Our God is Faithful. Happy New Year
