Since most of you except @historyb and @JohnDB don't already know I decided to vote this year and the other two know that from our other website that we're currently on is a clear example why. (Unfortunately for us we can't change websites by voting though) We're gradually losing our freedoms and it's unfair that Liberals can say whatever they want to be us Conservatives can't without paying a price. (For the record I called Biden unfit to be the president and he does absolutely nothing and got banned from one of their politics forums for three months. That's it. When it comes to calling Trump names though they're completely fine with that.)
Would the US government allow anyone to interpret the US constitution without the court system guiding them? If anybody can determine law by their own interpretation, we would have complete chaos! This is what we have in non-catholic christian religions, interpretation chaos. This is why there are 50 thousand different protestant / non-denominational churhes that believe different things.
- Jesus established a Church and gave the Church the keys to the kingdom of heaven, along with binding and losing authority - Matt 16
- Only the Catholic Church can claim that it was established by Jesus
- The early Church Fathers are Catholic
- Who owned back then and still owns the ancient write scripture scrolls?...
A massive, catastrophic disaster brought about by natural causes has struck the earth. Hundreds of millions have been killed or severely injured and every part of the world has been impacted to no small degree. The powers that be are now united, as will often happen under these circumstances, and have reached the consensus that we have angered God to an amount we never thought possible, and that some gesture of repentance must be made to Him. Since it has been suggested before by the religious figures of the west so many times and is practical enough to be feasible a national Sunday law is urged and passed, but the disaster and suffering continue, so the rest of the world decides to follow the lead of the U.S. and now the...
I did a study on this passage yesterday and I wanted to share it with the group.
King James Bible
For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily
Now read the Greek below on the present ongoing meaning of DWELLS . The bodily dwelling of Deity is permanent not temporary. The Incarnation was PERMANENT.
Verb - Present Indicative Active - 3rd Person Singular
Strong's Greek 2730: To dwell in, settle in, be established in (permanently), inhabit. From kata and oikeo; to house permanently, i.e. Reside.
8.2 σωματικός, ή,...
Two thousand, eight hundred years ago God exiled the House Of Israel from the Promised Land. Hashem said that Israel would lose their awareness of who they were. He said that the whole earth would be blessed through their descendants. He also said that during the last days He would wake them up, with their Levites being woke up first. I believe that after a season of repentance, healing, and restoration, He would do through the Levites what He had done in them.
During 1994, I walked into an unknown church, looking for God. He found me as I was looking for Him. He showed me things I found amazing, but the most amazing thing for me was His love for me. The result of this is I've never turned away from Him since. Where would I go?
Don't worry, God's Word does not declare a world-wide famine for the last days. There will be famines as always, from war, but not a global famine like the false pre-trib doomsdayers like to push in order to scare you into accepting their fly away theories.
The famine for the last days God said is not one for bread or water...
9 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day:
Those signs are markers for the very end of this world, as in Revelation 8:12 about the 4th Trumpet. That timing is prior to Christ's return and gathering of His Church. That places the following verses in that time...
Exodus 19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
This was spoken to the children of Israel.
1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
Was Peter talking to the church today, the body of Christ?
Was Peter saying the church today is a holy nation?
Was Peter saying the church today is a priesthood?
Peter was talking to the children of Israel as read in Exodus 19:6.
Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
but how do love the Lord your God?
if you me keep my commandments
so if we love God we should also keep his commandments
But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
then we should not eat blood but how will you do that there's blood all over the meat you eat you may not see it because it is already cooked but it is...
In this current environment, it seems like there is a great deal of division. In this recent post, I'm looking at Ephesians 2:16 -
“Together as one body, Christ reconciled both groups to God by means of his death on the cross, and our hostility toward each other was put to death.” (NLT)
What do you think about this concept when applied to the divisions (political and otherwise) that we see between many Christians today?

Hostility put to Death
After reading about 5 or so pages of debate on whether signs and wonders and gifts of the Spirit are still occurring on another thread here, I thought I would chime in with a post that has a slightly different view.
Heavenly Father grant me the unction to speak what you are showing me, May your will be done in Jesus Name, Amen.
Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. (John 20:29)
Earlier on this forum I have said that the gift of discerning of the spirits has been nullified in this day and age. I Believe this is of God's doing, and by his will that the church is in a state of flux and uncertainty over the issues. We see...
