Are there any prophecies out there we can actually believe? I am wondering about the times and the seasons and it is like we are not hearing much from God. Plenty of speculation out there, but nothing I can believe as of God.
When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him. - Deuteronomy 18:22
Presumptuously, Zadown in the Hebrew; interpreted - pride, insolence, presumptuousness, arrogance
There are a lot of people prophecying things of the future, including the Lord's coming, but they are doing it from the spirit of their own ego, and God is not in the word they...
Freewill usually refers to the human capacity to choose between good and evil. The idea of freewill has problems on several levels.
It is a poor description - a better way to describe our choice is between being selfish or community-minded. Do we focus on meeting our own needs before our neighbor or are we altruistic?
Also, before the Fall, humans could only choose between good things (they did not think selfishly); afterwards, we put self first, which indicates that we could no longer choose between good things because every choice we made from that point was selfish.
Christ died for the community - everything he did was community-minded. He instructed us to be community-minded and gave us the Holy Spirit to guide us, which is...
1 Cor 2:7-8
7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory,
8 which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
I take these scriptures to mean exactly what they say. Paul's "hidden in God" message of grace was not known before Jesus gave it to Paul. Other wise this verse is not true.
There are 7 suicides in the Bible and All were spiritual failures. It is the ultimate act of UNBELIEF and disowning God and leads to loss of salvation as these passages clearly warn us about.
Matthew 10:33 NIV
 But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.
Matthew 24:13 NIV
 but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.
Luke 8:13 NIV
 Those on the rock are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away.
Luke 14:29-30 NIV
 For if he lays the foundation and is not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule him,  saying, 'This fellow began to build...
Hello; and welcome to the very first book of the Bible.
I'm attempting a systematic, home-spun commentary practically verse by
verse from the creation of the cosmos to Joseph's burial in Egypt.
As of today's date, I'm 73 years old; and an on-going student of the Bible
since 1968 via sermons, seminars, lectures, Sunday school classes, radio
Bible programs, and various authors of a number of Bible-related books.
Forty-nine years of Bible under my belt hasn't made me an authority; but
they've at least made me competent enough to compose this commentary.
Barring emergencies, accidents, vacations, unforeseen circumstances,
and/or insurmountable distractions, database errors, difficulties, computer
Can anyone bring me up to date on what signs are happening in the world today regarding bible prophecy end times. There is much media surrounding September 24th, as there was last year and the year before, yet still nothing happened.. further more, many Christians believe in less then 10 or 15 years Jesus will return for his church, are we really that close until our Lord comes back,
Question: Are there any religions that teach God has ALREADY provided a Pardon for ALL of man’s sins of the flesh. The scriptures below indicate that to me, how about you???
ALL SCRIPTURES FROM THE NKJV
5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,
25 whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because...
I Fear to tread here, for fear that I will be trod on: But I am intrepid, an adventurer and a fool of sorts, so here goes.
Who created the Hell of Christendom? Is hell and hades not just the common grave? What is meant by the "Memorial Tombs". Why would Adam and Eve have needed an immortal soul if they were to live on a paradise earth forever, as was the original promise? Has the promise of mankind living on a paradise earth been withdrawn or is it still in the plan by God? Was Jesus immortal before he was raised to the heavens after his death?
History" The "Life Hereafter" concept did not appear in man's history until the times of the Egyptian Pharaohs, who declared themselves gods.
Pagan Rome, of Constantine's time, had...
Another peaceful march of conservative republicans being attacked by the Democratic leftist, liberal, and minorities. Another peaceful march had to be abandoned due to the violence. The Democratic liberals brought clubs and covered themselves with masks. The police again were told to stand down and let the Democractic left attack the peaceful protest.
No outcry from the Media. No outcry from the Democrats. As far as they are concerned they are glad the conservatives were forced by violence to not have their march.
I have said before, the divide is too great in this country, U.S., to ever be healed. The left knows it. The Democrats and minorities have made sure that conservatives and whites are the...
Did Jesus die for every one who calls on Him?
Well yes He did, That is clear. But I see many think they have power of atourney over others.
To many Christians think they have the right to Judge others.
For insatnce take a preacher like Benny Hinn.
I seen a few comments directed at him. one says He will be judge soon enough.
Well I am sure he will as we all will. But the person saying this Seems to be saying it with glee. So It looks like these persons have decoded Benny is going to suffer for what hes doing wrong. I am not sure what they think he doing wrong. So this sis an oppertunity for all of you guys to stand up and say why you think hes going to hell. be cause that is what you are all suggesting. But may...
