I am sure I am on ground where we say, we just can't know here and now. But, something to chew on. And I have no answer.
God gave us a will. And we exercise that will. And we reap the consequences of that will, good or bad.
Just as with Adam and Eve, when our will is in conflict with God's will, we have problems. When Satans will was and is in conflict with God's will, he had and does have problems.
So, why would God give us a will, when only His will will be acknowledged? In other words, throughout eternity, in heaven, my will, and the will of everyone there will always be God's will.
So, how is my will, my will, if it will always be God's will?
Just as eternity is impossible for us to contemplate, to me, my will...
It is a common error for religious preachers/teachers to assume that the Pauline Gospel of Grace should be blended in with what Jesus and the 11 preached. I feel this is a deadly error that will send many to Hell.
Gal 1:8 NKJV
8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.
It is a fact that God has given humankind different requirements down through history. The Pauline Gospel of salvation by faith in what God did on the cross (His shed blood) is without precedence in the scriptures. When a person fails to see this they will always blend the Law of Moses (what Jesus and the 11 taught to the Jews) with grace and destroy both of them. Paul warned...
Often I come upon scripture that greatly puzzles me; scripture I would like to get feedback from others on. I could post new threads every day. Instead of flooding the board with questions that may be easily resolved, I am creating one thread to discuss open questions.
If anyone else has scripture they want to present before the brethern for feedback yet they don't want to begin a new thread, this is the place. This thread is open to any topic; open to any scripture that causes questions.
I have a question that pertains to:
Revelation 11:8 KJV
 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
Why is: the great city referred to...
...and who we are called to be "in Him."
The sons of Sceva saw demons being cast out easily v.12, and thought they could do the same. But they were unable yet we know that Paul had success!
The sons of Sceva thought that speaking the name of Jesus and the authority of the name of Christ was enough, ....but they didn’t realize that the demons in the man could see that they had no authority because the men were not "in Christ."
They were not yet been fully born-again by the Spirit of God.
Unseen demonic spirits that have managed to gain access into a person’s life can see into the spiritual unseen realm as well as the physical realm.
Again and again in the Scriptures, when demons in people saw Jesus coming, they fell...

Most Christians I have met, from whichever denomination, has a lot of trouble believing that the Resurrected Jesus, can and does choose to Manifest Himself at times, so I went looking in the Bible....The following is some of what I found...( I can't physically type the entire chapters, so please read them for yourselves )
Matthew 28 : All
Speaks of the women going to the tomb, finding the angels there who tell them He is Risen and to go tell the disciples, saying :" He will go before you into Galilee."
Jesus then comes to them and His final Word to them is this :" I am with you ALWAYS, even till the end of the age ( or world as it says in some translations ).
Mark 16 : All
Reads very similar to the book of Matthew....Mary told the...
All of these overly paid football players are using their popularity, due to sport, to further a political advantage. Then when Trump voices his opinion that they should be fired for doing so, then everyone is whining about Trump bringing politics into football. Trump didn't bring politics into football. The disrespectful players did.
I am an avid football fan. But the NFL has literally squashed any desire on my part to watch them even on TV. Much less pay money to go to the games. And I don't think I am alone in this.
If these 'stupid', and yes I emphasize 'stupid', football players think they own the people, then they need a rude awakening. My advice, boycott all NFL football games . Not only do not buy tickets, but do...
