God choose Trump to Save the USA from Destruction. Who is so foolish as to fight against God's chooice??
Trump Chosen by God To Stop America's Destruction Astounding 2011 Prophecy
When David wrote this Psalm I can only believe he actually understood more about God than any of us ever will. It is the most intimate Psalm regarding the relationship of our Father to us, His children...Let's capture that sense of awe that David had...Let us truly understand and believe in a Loving Father who knows EVERYTHING about us, past...present...and future. Nothing is hid from Him!
Search Me, O God, and Know My Heart
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.
1. O Lord, you have searched me and known me!
2 You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar.
3 You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways.
There are many doctrines of men that apparently hate this revealing directly from God's Word that both the "resurrection of life" AND the "resurrection of damnation" happen on the SAME DAY of Christ's 2nd coming.
Apostle Paul said it was his hope there would be both a resurrection of the "just" and... the "unjust".
14 But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:
15 And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.
Do you really...
"""Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:""""
This verse is the cornerstone verse to help you understand that you are always at peace with God.
Notice carefully. ""we HAVE"..... not.... we are earning, or we are keeping, or we are hoping in end to get..
Do you see that? = You are at PEACE WITH GOD !
Its so important regarding your correct understanding of the Blood Atonement that you come to BELIEVE this verse, as if you can find your way there in your head and faith, you will be delivered from ever again trying to keep yourself right with God by YOUR EFFORT.
And once you are in this place of right believing (Grace) you are on your way to perfected discipleship.
But until you...
Yes I believe in the post tribulation rapture. The rapture will happen after the Antichrist and the Mark Of The Beast system is revealed, and the Antichrist desecrates the temple, the temple has to be built first in order for the Antichrist to desecrate it.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-2 (MEV)
"Now, brothers, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and concerning our gathering together unto Him, we ask you not to let your mind be quickly shaken or be troubled, neither in spirit nor by word, nor by letter coming as though from us, as if the day of Christ is already here."
Hmmm, well I have been thinking of Catholic doctrine on Mary lately and the "hail Mary." In this thread we will look at the importance of Mary's role in the Bible, and the Catholic doctrine on Mary and why do Catholics say hail Mary's, if we read Luke 1:28 in the Bible we find out Angel Gabriel said to Mary Mother of Jesus "Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women."
A real interesting view point though lately I have seen though from Father Rob Galea, is about loving Jesus the way Mary did, having a close relationship with Jesus the way Mary did, and I think that is quite a wonderful viewpoint, because when we think about it Mary the mother of Christ Jesus would have...
 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Since this is the prerequisite to enter into the Kingdom of God, I think it is very important to have a full understanding of it. While being born of the Spirit is pretty self explanatory, being born of "water" is less clear; that's why I put that word in all caps in the title: WATER. I say that it's less clear because I've heard many commentaries on it's meaning. Here are two.
1. When were are born of a natural birth via our Mother's wombs, then we are born of WATER when her water breaks. However, that does not make any sense in the context that Jesus spoke. It's as strange as...
I am providing this information because some people here don't want to be reminded of how gross abortion is and how cruel and barbaric it is. After all the baby has done nothing to warrant being murdered in the womb. IF THAT IS YOU, GO NO FURTHER.
Abortion was not on my radar until I saw the ultrasound video known as The Silent Scream, a video recorded and filmed by an abortionist during an actual abortion. The baby being aborted was screaming as the forceps grabbed hold of him.
For people who say it is only a blob of cells, I say go and take a long walk off a short pier.
So here is fact number one. Aborted babies feel pain.
1. Pain receptors develop early.
I was having a discussion with someone close to me the other day. The claim that was put forward was this:
If someone in ministry prays for someone else to get healed in the name of Jesus - and that person is healed - that the person could only be healed in Jesus name if that's what was prayed - and therefore it is evidence of a persons ministry being authentic.
My perspective (which may be quite wrong which is why I raise it here) - is that this is a dangerous precedence to set to know if the ministry is authentic or not. The scripture that was in my mind was Matthew 7:22 - "Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?"
What is "dead faith", as found regarding a verse in James.?
Dead faith is when you become cold to the things of God and probably backslide.
People who get lost/stuck in Hebrews, Matthew and James, which are the heretics handbook, do not actually read those verses in James very closely.. But instead they just teach a bumper sticker ...."dead faith".
First you have to have to recognize that there is the "justification by faith, without the deeds of the law"", and "saved by Grace through faith".....as a one time event where God took our faith and gave us the Righteousness of Christ... So, that FAITH, is singular and one time, as proven by the fact that you are BORN AGAIN, one time.
= We took Jesus and God took...
