Deidre, On this forum we stand with scripture. Period. To even suggest that it might be OK to marry outside your belief system, as a Christian could be dangerous to someone who is just not ready to listen or even be strong enough to stand on the word. So my question would be if as you say the Bible is clear on this subject why even bring up that fact you know couples who have done this. I just think it might be a slippery slope. My opinion.
Well the who in verse 7 is what the explanation is about in the opening post I made to start this thread.
The who is Jesus because he is the one who has been given all power in heaven and in the earth, Matthew 28:18. The he is Jesus - "who".... lets the mystery of iniquity take place, which is the mystery of lost-ness, eternally. falling away from believing that Jesus is the messiah, the savior.
Which is the spirit of Antichrist, to deny both Father and Son. This goes on, ultimately culminating in the revealing of the man of sin - son of perdition (eternally being lost) - until "he" - Jesus, not Jesus himself, but his body here on earth, the church, the believers are taken out of the way. Then, after the church the believers are gone, the man sin commits the act of claiming to be God, which the Day of the Christ, the Day of the Lord follows, the great tribulation here on earth begins.
I hope this weekend to finish the book on Enoch I'm reading and start on a book on DNA. Besides that, I'm going to enjoy my 3-day weekend with my wife, dogs and fixing my car, if the relay comes from Amazon comes in time. I really appreciate Amazon's breath of products, customer reviews and quality service. I might even get some shooting done at the range. Hope you all have a safe Memorial Day weekend.
"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. [NASB, John 15:13]
How much more is the love of Jesus for us that He laid down His life for us who were not yet His friends? And let us never forget this Memorial Day the ultimate sacrifice of our men and women in service to this country, who put their lives on-hold, and on the line for all of us. God bless them, their families and friends.
Let us remember on this 3-day weekend those of us whose family members and friends have made the ultimate sacrifice for our safety. To all the men and women in service to this country, both on the battlefield and serving in some support capacity, I solute you, and respectfully ask God to bless you and your families for your service, in Jesus name I pray.
