Zechariah 14:1-4 (NKJV)
1 Behold, the day of the LORD is coming, ...
2 For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem;...
3 Then the LORD will go forth And fight against those nations, As He fights in the day of battle.
4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east.
Jesus will return to Israel, right where He left!
Someone else here had a post that asked, "Who are the elect?" This is a partly a response to that post and a post unto itself.
Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus: (Eph. 1:1)
Could it be that what most of Protestantism has been taught an error, that all believers are saints? Let me explain a little. As a reaction to the false veneration of the saints by the Roman Catholic church, Martin Luther and other reformers wanted no part in this and did away with this distinction. With the exception of some anglican churches most of Protestantism still holds to the teaching that all believers are saints. But is this what the Bible states. The verse quoted...
Deuteronomy 4:5 Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.
Israel will be brought into the land, and at that time, God will fulfill the new covenant promised them.
God will, by the new covenant, cause the remnant of Israel to keep his commandments in the kingdom on earth:
Deuteronomy 30:8 And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day.
Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After...
In the light of the tremendous fires that have raged, and are raging in the USA and that have also wreaked havoc in Australia. Have sceptics regarding global warming had to re-evaluate their thinking on this issue?
With the decreasing population of creatures on our planet because of the loss of their natural habitat, caused by deforestation and the encroachment of man. The increase in the rise of the water in the oceans caused by the ice caps melting. The increasing problem with refugees fleeing war, famine, flood, seeking safety and a chance to live their lives peacefully, and without fear. The effect of the global pandemic on economies throughout the world. There are so many issues arising, can people continue to...
Working from home during lock-down has given me some time to think about the parables of Jesus. This week I present the parable of the pearl for your consideration. I hope this helps you with your own studies.
Title: Parable of the Pearl.
The video explicates the meaning of the Parable of the Pearl of Great Price, which is Jesus Christ. When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we give up our job as pearl merchants and become a pearl owner.
Isaiah said "in his body he bore our sin and transgressions." What happened on the outside of Christ is what what they were doing to his body (death), but it was "the sin of the world" being completely dealt with by Christ on the cross. What is "the sin of the world" it is all in Adam, the sin nature and all that sin could cause and do was dealt a final death blow, gone forever by the cross. John the Baptist said;
The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. - John 1:29
The sin of the world is singular; in it all sin-sinning-sin nature, Satan nature-ever committed or to be committed sin was in the lamb. How is the sin of the world dealt with; by crucifying...
Over at another forum today, and finding it amazing how little faith there is among believers in the supernatural. We may not have everything right around here, but good Heavens what it is that people even believe these days?! They sound like atheists.
Notice how many "Christians" are posting like they don't believe witchcraft is even real. It's astounding. I thought belief in the demonic, and the influence of evil spirits over the affairs of men was like "Christianity 101" or something.
What is going on? Anyone? I realize there may be a few here who feel the same way, but to me it's like Faithless Central over there or something!
Im going to give you my teaching on the "Book of Life".
There are many of them. "out there".
You probably know of 2 or 3, yourself.
I'll give you what i teach.
Mine is really simple.
The central teaching of the New Testament is the subject of Righteousness.
Jesus came to give it, and if you die without it, that's an eternal problem that you can't solve. Sometimes i teach and state that the Lake of Fire will be burning the unbelievers, for as long as God lives. And that is both harsh and true.
What keeps this eternal reality from being cruel, is the fact that anyone who ends up there, chose this for themselves. They made a fully informed freewill decision to reject Christ, freely......and finally died.
Never will a person stand...
Catholicism, is a deception.
Now, for the benefit of the deceived Catholic, who yesterday, on my "Jesus isn't a Catholic" Thread, posted that """"EVERYBODY in Heaven besides God and the angels is Catholic"""" . . .... So, I wanted to write a Thread dedicated to this false idea.
The Catholic religion is based on the worship of Mary, and it includes the heresy of "water baptism" = Salvation. (Baptismal Regeneration).
It also includes the bizarre demonic idea that "Priests" have the power to change a cookie and juice into the literal body and blood of Jesus.
Catholics will be found as all cultists are found, totally obsessed with their cult's doctrine.
Catholics will be found trying to work their way into...
