There is an old puzzle which goes like this..........
If God can do all things, can He create a stone too heavy for Him to lift?
That is actually pretty profound, as we cannot answer it either way, without admitting that there are some things God cannot do...... If we answer :" Of course God can create a stone......", then we are faced with the problem that now God has a stone, which now He CANNOT lift, so back to square one......
Yes indeed there are things God cannot do ( and will not do )..
He cannot lie................He cannot break His Word...........He cannot act outside of Love, because the very substance of what He is.......is Love !
I could no doubt sit here all day and come up with more, but I am sure you get my drift here.
What a great promise from God!!
God says==no weapon forged against me will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me," declares the LORD. Isaiah 54:17
I'm brand new here and I was just wondering if anyone else thinks that Jesus Christ will return this Feast of Trumpets.
I have studied Bible Prophecy for decades, mostly by typing out the verses, and even though the events have not happened the way Bible experts insist they must, every prophecy has been fulfilled except Jerusalem being taken. And perhaps the Sun and the Moon.
But I can't imagine in my wildest imagination that this is all true and out of all the people on Earth I am the only person to notice all of this.
How to be saved (born again) and join the family of God!! Romans: Chapter 10 verse 9-10-13
God says==That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in your heart that God hath raised him
from the dead, thou shalt be Saved. For with the heart man
believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession
is made unto Salvation. For whosoever shall call upon the
name of the Lord shall be Saved..........
Here is an "example prayer" if you have never talked to God..........
I come to you in prayer asking for the forgiveness of
my Sins. I confess with my mouth and believe with my
heart that Jesus is your Son, And that he died on the
Cross at Calvary that I might be...
Wonderful Truth of the Very Near Rapture (Catching Up of All Believers)!! Those Who Died in Christ ===1 THESS. 4:13-18 NASB
13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus. 15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Thenwe who are...
Why be left behind on rapture day??? God Removes His People before His Judgement falls on evil sin lovers!!
God Removes His People before His Judgement falls on evil sin lovers!!
God removed Righteous Noah and his family and shut them up in the ark for their protection before the great flood that destroyed all evil sin loving people.
God removed Righteous Lot and his family from Sodom before God destroyed Sodom.
Jesus will rapture (catchup) all righteous in Christ believers before the judgment of the great tribulation!!! PTL. Will you meet Jesus in the clouds as your Lord and Savior or as your final Judge?? You get to choose!!!
Sword started a thread about the common ground of things that we all can agree upon.
Which has got me thinking about the things that we don’t seem to agree upon!
If we are honest with each other and ourselves, many things that we “hold as to what we each believe , or don’t believe…is nothing more than our personal opinion of how we choose to interpret scripture.
( but many people seem to have a real problem with believing or agreeing, that they mostly have is "opinions”)
We see discussions on here about rapture…which doesn’t really matter much, because it will happen , or not happen no matter what we choose to believe strongly upon!!
We see discussions between Catholic and Protestants …again, it doesn’t really...
Do you know that those who add works to the Gospel of grace are under a curse? I am not talking about the traits of the children of God which are a result of the Holy Spirit within them. I am talking about salvation.
There were believing Jews (they believed that Jesus was their Messiah and King) that followed after Paul teaching that Paul’s convert must be circumcised and keep the law of Moses.
5 But some of the sect of the Pharisees who believed rose up, saying, "It is necessary to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses."
This is obviously the message that James is teaching when he said faith without works is dead (see James 2:1-26 and Acts 21:20).
20 And when they heard it,...
In the 4 gospels Jesus told Peter to feed His Sheep and Lambs. These were the Jews who were His people.
Today, under grace, the children of God are not His Sheep or Lambs. We are "the body of Christ" and sons of God. As sons we are heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ.
15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out,"Abba, Father."
16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,
17 and if children, then heirs — heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and...
