Hello Ragamuffins, Wayfarers, Pilgrims, Bean Counters, Shoe Shiners and any who don't fit these descriptions....Reading these three and a half pages yesterday from the book 'Patriachs and Prophets' chapter 67, Ancient and Modern Sorcery.... I thought it was well presented and would like to share it with you.
“The Scripture account of Saul’s visit to the woman of Endor has been a source of perplexity to many students of the Bible. There are some who take the position that Samuel was actually present at the interview with Saul, but the Bible itself furnishes sufficient ground for a contrary conclusion. If, as claimed by some, Samuel was in heaven, he must have been summoned thence, either by the power of God or by that of Satan. None can...
This bums me out, but we can't give in to the evil Democrats. I hope he and his church still meets
Deuteronomy 4:30 When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;
4:31 (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God ; ) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.
Israel will go through the tribulation in the latter days.
If obedient, they will partake of the covenant of their fathers to possess the land (Genesis 15:18) and be a blessing to the nations in the kingdom (Isaiah 60:3).
Back in January 2017, I had a dream about the Rapture. I began with my mom and I driving in the car and we were driving past the cemetery in my town leading to my house. As I looked ahead towards distant mountains was a huge, bright, shiny Light coming from the Sky, almost seemed like it was a shape of a star vaguely. Getting out of the car in disbelief and in awe by what I was seeing. I fell to my knees a began saying “Oh Jesus my Savior!” and being lost for words. Being on my knees on the sidewalk other people surrounded me looking confused and was looking at me like I was absolutely crazy. But, I knew that this Light was blatantly in the Sky and everybody in the world could look up and see it. I had a sense that the people...
I know that this could spark a passionate debate - and my purpose isn't to create disagreement - but genuinely wanting to see different (and respectable) perspectives on where the bible, and us as Christians fit within this viewpoint.
Even if we disagree strongly - can you please keep this civil - I'm here genuinely wanting to have my thoughts challenged and to learn from this - not to try and prove a point.
My question is: Does the bible support Christian involvement in things such as The American Revolution, or does it restrict against it, or is it silent?
For me - I am passionate about freedom and those who fight for freedom. What I know (which is limited) about America's past - I like a lot of what I see with patriots and...
Is 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
Rev 12:1 And there appeared a great sign in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
Mt 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Is Mary the sign of Jesus?
The desire to know the truth concerning the concept of whether or not one can lose a redemptive position in the Lord Jesus is clearly the most popular spiritual growth doctrine among the New Testament teachings (which of course is a separate issue concerning receiving salvation). It’s clear that Scripture contains language that can appear to support either concept, and I believe there are two certainties concerning this issue: that only one of these concepts is true; that until the translation of the Church there will always remain believers who will accept one or the other as truth.
It’s been wisely said that asking good questions is key to finding good answers! At present one of my most prying thoughts is why Scripture (primarily in...
Without the bodily resurrection which was permanent one has no Savior and you are still dead in your sins according to the Apostle Paul. 1 Corinthians 15:17
Many deny Jesus was Resurrected and Ascended into heaven bodily( a human body with real flesh and bones) and are still dead in their sins even though they might claim to be a christian. That is an oxymoron.
37 But they were startled and frightened and thought that they were seeing a spirit. 38 And He said to them, "Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? 39 "See My hands and My feet, that...
Luke 16:19-20 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:  And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
Acts 3:1-18 Now Peter (a stone, a boulder)and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.  And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, (lame from his mother’s belly, was carried)whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful(seasonable, timely), to ask (beg mercy, beg pity)alms of them that entered into the temple;  Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.  And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John,...
