Who was this man Cain. It's clear Cain was the son of Satan. What would lead anyone to believe this.
For me Gods word tells me this. The first thing to tell us is we don't find Cain in Adams genealogy. Why isn't he there ? Jesus tells us in Matthew 24 :33-35 Ye serpents ye generation of vipers how can ye escape the damnation of hell ? Wherefore behold I send unto you prophets and wise men and scribes and some of them ye shall kill and crucify and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues and persecute them from city to city. That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth from the blood of righteous ABLE unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias whom slew between the temple and the altar. 1st...
Id like to hear what scriptures those who believe in a Rapture use to support their beliefs.
I would like to say my supporting scripture for the Rapture being False Teaching comes from Ezekiel 13:20-21 For those who understand Gods word you know that this chapter in this book is telling you how unhappy God is with False Teaching. Some of the things being taught include this False belief of Jesus sweeping down to fly you away from the end events.
So please tell me what it is that makes one believe the teachings of man. And have no re guard at all for what our Father has written. I have asked the question many times of Ezekiel chapter 13 in particular these verses . I might say I have never got an explanation.
A family member died 24 hours ago..suddenly. A bad headache, wife took him to the Emerg. He walked in with her, answered questions clearly, they put him onto the bed, he fell asleep, and never woke up again. 63.
They found he had a bad brain bleed, from a stoke...when they couldn't wake him up, they did another CT scan, and pronounce him brain dead. He stopped breathing 30 mins later. GONE!
Wonderful for him...I am sure we'd all like our departure from this old world to be that quickly. ( after our three score years and ten! )
Instantly with the Lord. But a very big shock for the rest of the family.
He was such a gracious, loving, and humble soul..much loved by all.
He has beaten us to the other...
Who do you go to to receive a spiritual gift?
Let us look to where the fruits of the Spirit comes from.
Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:......11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.
Really? Is it possible that all the words of the Spirit are from Jesus Christ as well?
John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive...
This study explains why it is a sin to eat or drink blood, along with the meat of any animal that still has its blood. The study can be found in English here The Sin of the Consumption of Blood | Wisdom of God or in Spanish here El Pecado de Consumir Sangre | Sabiduria de Dios . Let us begin a discussion on these matters.
Think about it. When your church honors and worships the Holy Spirit and seducing spirits come in and fall on them, bringing tongues without interpretation or other sensational signs in the flesh resulting in confusion, you would have a hard time convincing these believers that was not the real indwelling Holy Spirit that had just come.
They were honoring the Holy Spirit and they were addressing the Holy Spirit in worship, so why wasn't that the Holy Spirit that came and fell on them, bringing signs? Isn't that the rudiment or the practice in these movements of the "Spirit" when they invoke the Person of the Holy Spirit to come & fall on them, and yet you say that is not of the Lord at all?
So why would God limit how we, as saved...
So with what I see on this forum, this is an issue that needs to be brought up to the surface, so this is why i created this thread.
We see Christian's brothers & sisters verbally bashing each other way too much, personally targeting each other, verbally attacking each other, throwing insults at each other, Christians are making an argument out of nearly everything, we got extremes on each side. Is it morally right for us Christians to be acting in such a way?
I have my views on this, what are yours?
I personally believe it's damaging to brothers & sisters in Christ, and creates further division. Rather than beating someone down, we should encourage & build up, our mates, brothers, sisters, etc. and give them a good word....
If God's first words were Gen 1:3 "And God said, let there be light..." and it is further written in John 1:3 that "All things were made by him (the word); and without him (the word)was not any thing made that was made." Then how is it that so many Christian sects believe that Genesis 1:1 was God's first act of creation?
In the genealogy of our Lord, and Savior, Jesus the Christ. there is a woman in his linage, according to the flesh, that have been for a long time, surrounded in controversy, and surrounded in mystery. this woman has been portrayed as a harlot/prostitute, but yet, she is without the stigma of a Jezebel, or a Delilah. she is listed among many, according to the bible, as one having great faith, (see Hebrews 11). some have said that this woman was a Tavern-keeper, others, Innkeeper, yet others, in keeping with the biblical record, a harlot and or a prostitute. she has carried this title, harlot, throughout the bible long enough without biblical understanding. many, (including myself), in ignorance misunderstood this word, harlot, and the...
