    When do you "expect" Jesus to return?

    I understand the Amillennial viewpoint, but this added, "even in the flesh (theirs)" is unique. Did you come up with that one? You think the Holy Spirit is Jesus and so whenever we look at a Christian, when can say, "There he is, and over there _ Jesus _ in the flesh_ in everyone. No, Jesus in...

    When do you "expect" Jesus to return?

    Back then the future meant anytime, any generation ... 100 years, 1000 years ... not very specific. Now the meaning has been narrowed down to the time we are in, our generation.

    The Godly Heresy of Sinless Perfectionism

    You have put together a good study. I have had conflicts with those who think of "total sinless perfectionisn", which we will not achieve until we go to heaven and rid ourselves of the flesh. Jesus is sinless perfection and we are in Christ. However, I believe we all have moments of perfection...

    When do you "expect" Jesus to return?

    And what year, day and hour is that? Was a poll taken by 2.7 billion people?

    Do Christians sin like the unbelievers?

    Good post. I would just add that being cleansed of sin (past, present and future) is spiritual. So that at any moment, if we die, we go to be with God, presented spotless, white as snow. So where is the sin? "Sin dwells in the members of our flesh." As you pointed out in Romans 7 ( which many...

    When do you "expect" Jesus to return?

    First of all, the context compares this time "as in the days of Noah". Rhe entire world did not believe the warning except Noah and his family. GOD told Noah when to load up the Ark and shut the doors. So if you don't believe, then you can't expect anything to happen. Furthermore, if he doesn't...

    Holy Spirit - The Sin Against

    The Pharisees accused Jesus of performing miracles by the power of Satan. THAT in essence was saying the the power of the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit himself is Satan. That is rejecting the Holy Spirit in the most offensive way. Ultimately the damned reject God. "God draws all men to...

    Why Hell is not a place of eternal conscious torment.

    First of all, this Jude 7 translation word (angels) was added to the verse and is wrong. Out of 60 English translations, only two use this. All the other translations refer to the (people in the towns, surrounding cities), not angels. I like the NASB and use it often. But no version is perfect...

    Is believing/faith a work ?

    Faith is a gift. "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Heb. 11:1 It is the sureness put in your heart, you know and are convinced that it is true, Gidbhas revealed Himself to you through His word and spiritually within. He forgives you and offers eternal...

    Paul claimed 3 times that Revelation 20:4 was a current reality.

    For anyone who cares to read a concise theological argument and presentation of the Millennial Kingdom. https://www.preceptaustin.org/revelation-topics-millennium#4.11.5

    Paul claimed 3 times that Revelation 20:4 was a current reality.

    Okay, time to end the conversion. We have come to an impasse, actually I knew this would happen before I started. I just don't know what compels me to pursue a conversation with an Amillennial anymore? See ya on the other side brother!

    Paul claimed 3 times that Revelation 20:4 was a current reality.

    Really, the boundaries of the land God gave them contained about 300,000 square miles. They only took possession of 10 percent of that, because they failed to obey. And how much do they have today? They only possess 8630 sq. miles today. This covenant of land was never fully realized. It was...

    Paul claimed 3 times that Revelation 20:4 was a current reality.

    ' ...Thy kingdom come, thy will be done ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN..." "The meek shall inherit the earth". That hasn't happened. You still are not addressing that fact that this whole world is falling apart. That it is not and has never been in peace and harmony with all nations glorify and...

    Paul claimed 3 times that Revelation 20:4 was a current reality.

    Spiritually, they are alive in Christ, but their bodies are still in the grave. Jesus' body was resurrected. Christians have not experienced a bodily resurrection. You can visit graveyards all over the world. So this your problem, you identify the spiritual transformation ( being born again) as...

    Paul claimed 3 times that Revelation 20:4 was a current reality.

    Okay, misread that one in post 120. "Those beheaded souls John sees in heaven did not have their heads cut off and then have part in the first resurrection. They had their heads cut off because they were part of the first resurrection." Still, this statement is in error. Though a born again...

    Paul claimed 3 times that Revelation 20:4 was a current reality.

    You hold an Amillennial view, I do not. I have read not only your responses to me but others as well. You have some truth mixed in with (what I believe) confusion and misinterpretation. Of course, you see all of us in a similar way, confused, mixed up. We are all reading the same scriptures...

    Do you think only people aged 25 should be allowed to use and own guns?

    When I was 17, CT. lowered the drinking age to 18 and I was getting into bars. Fortunately I never did anything stupid. A few years later they realized that wasn't a good idea so they changed it back to 21. There are many responsible young adult drinkers and some jerks who actually hurt...

    Who Will Burn in Hell "Forever and Ever"?

    "to the ages of the ages". Aionios has variable meanings. >>Nights will come to an end after the first earth is burned up. There will be no more nights, darkness. So that age will be over and a new one will come, a new heaven and new earth. Pain and suffering and death will not exist...

    A polite question for pretribbers

    Christ resurrected, he was the first, but concerning the Church, the First Resurrection takes place at His Second Coming. (1 Cor. 15:23). The Second resurrection involves those who died after the First Resurrection, during the Great Tribulation and throughout the the Millennial Kingdom. This...
