      Who is talking about ignoring God's commands??

      I know those kinds too, but thankfully they don't make up the majority.  There are always a few crazies out there, but most people understand that there is a certain amount of speculation that goes along with the rapture view and that it is  not doctrine.    They are generally ready no matter what happens.
    • Matthew 7:21-23 , I never knew you
      By Kan · Posted
      Not so SimpleJeff and Little flower,  Thanks for those answers. There is a text which says that God is too pure to behold or to think evil. He has no room for it in His mind, heart and life. This would also include those whose lives are connected with it, and unwilling to have any conversation and contact with God?  So that when He says I never knew you, He cannot be lying, because it is part of His personality not to become attached and or involved in a knowledgeable way, to or with any person who does not want Him in their life. So out of courtesy and respect, God does not get into their life, and therefor can honestly say "I Never knew you" "I was not invited to be into your life so I respected your wish and stayed out of it."  This proves that God can consciously ignore facts. Here is proof, - "your sins I will remember no more." We forgive, but we rarely forget. But this is saying that if God chooses not to know something or somebody, that it becomes an actual fact - unlike anything human. The Omniscient God can do impossible things. Can God ignore that we exist? Yes. But He actively searches the hearts of men for the slightest sign of spiritual life. These people under that confession "I never knew you" are reminded that they never wanted to know Him. They wanted power and influence - which they got, but never bothered to be personal with God, never shared their likes and talked to Him, never called on Him for victory over sin, never said "hello" or "sorry Lord." Never obeyed, but pretended that their own religious rules were enough honor to God.

      Can we ignore God's commands?
    • Church Attendence
      By shiloh357 · Posted
      Yes it is not enough to go to a church.   One should attend a church that actually preaches the truth, and not a church that teaches salvation is based on something other than Jesus Christ.    Going to church isn't how we are saved, but there fellowship benefits that those who choose not to attend will miss out on.    There is coming a time when it will be better to stay away from churches due to the way so many are falling into false doctrine and are capitulating to the world's system.  Many churches are not even worth attending, these days.

      Unfortunately, I have know several personally that unless something has changed for them, I would be afraid for the strength of their faith.   I have see many who plan do things like run up their credit card debt because they believe they are going to be raptured out and never have to worry about it.    I'm not making this up.    It is a logical conclusion to come to, but  morally wrong.

      I don't know anyone who has a pre-trib view that hold to it to the point that they are so naïve as to think that they can't be wrong.   Many pre-tribbers understand the real possibility that they could be wrong and are prepared for that possibility.  They not going to abandon their faith if their rapture view is wrong.  Their faith isn't that shallow.

      My fear is for those who hold such a pre-trib position, and when the "rapture" does not occur for them, their faith may be found to be so weak, with so much hope placed on an event that did not occur, that they will lose their faith.    
    • Grace......? did you tasted it? or do you know this?
      By thereselittleflower · Posted
      Grace is so much more than favor and kindness.  
      Grace is the Greek word charis.  Strong's Concordance gives this definition; "Graciousness (as gratifying), of manner or act (abstract or concrete; literal, figurative or spiritual; especially the divine influence upon the heart, and its reflection in the life; including gratitude)"   It is the divine influence on the heart, and so it must have power to influence the heart. Paul says:  1Co 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.  It is the grace of God which labored in Paul. So Grace is working in us to accomplish things in and through us.   Thus it is an empowering to do the work of God, and such an empowering that we even more abundantly can work even in an exhaustive state, for the word "labored" here means working even to the point of exhaustion: κοπιάω kopiáō, kop-ee-ah'-o; from a derivative of G2873; to feel fatigue; by implication, to work hard:—(bestow) labour, toil, be wearied. to grow weary, tired, exhausted (with toil or burdens or grief) to labour with wearisome effort, to toil of bodily labour Scriptures speak of being filled with grace - jesus was full of grace: John 1:14  The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only,who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.   It does not make sense to say one is filled with favor - but it makes sense to say one is filled with power. Again: Hebrews 13:9   Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by eating ceremonial foods, which is of no benefit to those who do so.   Grace has the power to strengthen our hearts, so it has real and direct action and effect on us. Again, what does Grace accomplish in us? of the merciful kindness by which God, exerting his holy influence upon souls, turns them to Christ, keeps, strengthens, increases them in Christian faith, knowledge, affection, and kindles them to the exercise of the Christian virtues the spiritual condition of one governed by the power of divine grace   Strongs Concordance   God, through divine grace, exerts His holy influence on souls, turns them to Christ, keeps, strengthens, increases them in Chrsitian faith, knowledge, affection and kindles them to the exercise of the  Christian virtues -   we are governed by the power of divine grace.   Divine Grace is the life giving power of God.    It is through the power of Grace God keeps us, strengthens us, increases us in faith, knowledge and affection, and kindles in us the exercise of christian virtues.    We may call it favor, kindness, etc, but whatever we call it, it is indeed powerful.

      We have a pre trib teaching which if it is wrong many will started doubting the Lord's Second Coming, and erred from the faith thus in this way they will see His Second Coming but missed out on it blessing see Matthew 24:48-51,  Perhaps a better way to put it is don't get so dogmatic in your end time view that you miss out on the Blessing which Christ brings at His Second Coming
