  2. Praise God, I can only add: 2 Corinthians 5:17 โ€œTherefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.โ€ Enjoy today
  3. People are saved by obedience to the Lord. And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him, Hebrews 5:9 Obeying the Gospel. For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17 Obeying His Commandments - He who says, โ€œI know Him,โ€ and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. 1 John 2:4-5 Obeying His Doctrine - Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. 2 John 9 JLB
  4. My typing and editing skills have just been exposed. I knew I would do that sooner or later. Hope it started your day with a smile. Love peace and joy
  5. Absolutely, dear friend. The promises of God never fail. 1 John 1:9 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. Romans 10:9-10 9If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is LORD," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. God bless ๐Ÿ˜‡
  6. Hi Abby, Gracie Slick was/is the lead singer for the band called Jefferson Starship. The band was originally known as the Jefferson Airplane in the late 1960's. However, once Captain Kirk, Spock, and their ship the Enterprise became famous the band changed their name. I admit I grew up on Star Trek and I like all the series they made. Grace Slick has a voice that's almost opera like. Without Grace Slick the song "Somebody to Love" would have been dull. She bought life into anything she sang. think she's still alive and performs maybe every 2 yrs.

  13. Of course I agree with the above. Why would anyone believe the bible if they didn't think it was inspired by God. But inspired does not mean that God wrote the bible...men wrote it with the inspiration they had at the moment. I've been helped greatly to understand the O.T. Some ask how it could be that God said to kill every man woman and child...how He could be so mean. If we understand revelation and inspiration, we tend not to blame God for everything that happened in the O.T. and many questions are answered through this understanding. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, 1 Samuel 15:3 1Then Samuel said to Saul, โ€œThe LORD sent me to anoint you as king over His people, over Israel; now therefore, listen to the words of the LORD. 2โ€œThus says the LORD of hosts, โ€˜I will punish Amalek for what he did to Israel, how he set himself against him on the way while he was coming up from Egypt. 3โ€˜Now go and strike Amalek and utterly destroy all that he has, and do not spare him; but put to death both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.โ€™โ€ 4Then Saul summoned the people and numbered them in Telaim, 200,000 foot soldiers and 10,000 men of Judah. 5Saul came to the city of Amalek and set an ambush in the valley. 6Saul said to the Kenites, โ€œGo, depart, go down from among the Amalekites, so that I do not destroy you with them; for you showed kindness to all the sons of Israel when they came up from Egypt.โ€ So the Kenites departed from among the Amalekites. 7So Saul defeated the Amalekites, from Havilah as you go to Shur, which is east of Egypt. 8He captured Agag the king of the Amalekites alive, and utterly destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword. 9But Saul and the people spared Agag and the best of the sheep, the oxen, the fatlings, the lambs, and all that was good, and were not willing to destroy them utterly; but everything despised and worthless, that they utterly destroyed. Samuel Rebukes Saul 10Then the word of the LORD came to Samuel, saying, 11โ€œI regret that I have made Saul king, for he has turned back from following Me and has not carried out My commands.โ€ And Samuel was distressed and cried out to the LORD all night. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, God commands to kill all... God is sorry He trusted Saul as King... Pretty odd for God to do either of the two So you've explained the O.T. and the N.T. very well,,,the N.T. being the ultimate revelation from God through His Son Jesus....but you neglected to answer my very important question: How is it that Jesus had to adjust/fix/repair, the incorrect teachings that were found in the Mosaic Law if they were correct?? But I do feel that we have already killed the dead horse, so we'll leave it at this.

  15. Thanks. I am glad you are alive.
  16. Hi Jostler, You'll get no disagreement from me on this. Maybe I can propose a further thought. I grew up when folks thought going to Heaven will mean sitting on a cloud eternally playing a harp while saying praise the Lord. (I'm sure some of us will) But I keep hearing from an increasing number of preachers that they think we will be doing work for God, and probably fighting some battles too. A few weeks ago Dr. David Jeremiah joined the preachers who think we will always be doing jobs for God. I'm going to assume you'd agree as well. Anyway, I was praying and meditating on this some 25 yrs ago and I saw myself flying through space (without a ship) because I was on a mission for God. It could have been my wishful thinking or perhaps it was real, I'm unsure. Have you considered that the more we learn about the universe the less we know? I wonder if it's really as big as modern astrophysicists think. And then we have the spiritual realms. All of this put together is an amount of space I can barely conceive of. I wonder, what is God making. Jesus said 1 thing that supports my ideas. I can't quote it exactly, it was something like Jesus said His Father was busy creating. Jesus then implied God is always creating, that's what God does. There is every reason to think that we will work & fight along with the Holy angels after we get glorified bodies. I believe this because no where does the Bible even imply that the Holy angels are ever going to be destroyed. Jostler you sound like you're familiar with some of Mike Heiser's theories, so am I. Since I can't read his books yet I don't know what he thinks "reclaiming the nations" actually means. Although I had noticed that the Bible almost always talks of "the nations". The disconnect is preachers always talk about the individual but the Bible talks of the nations. I do believe God has a master plan going on. I've been asking God what that plan is for decades. I believe He told me enough so I'd stop asking Him. I was surprised to learn that part of what God put in my head agrees with some of the ideas Heiser got from intense study of the text. In any case it's interesting. Thanks for being concerned with my sight. You can reduce the font by 25 to 50%. I was supposed to get my 1st surgery Nov. 26th but I'm almost sure it has to be delayed again. I wasn't going to mention this yet. I went for medical surgical clearance last Friday and part of it was an EKG. For the 1st time ever I had an abnormal EKG. It showed something called a right bundle branch block RBBB. Now I need an Echo-cardiogram asap. I'm going to call a local hospital for an appointment Monday. A RBBB can be as minor as a tummy ache or so serious I might need a pacemaker. It could even mean I'll be leaving soon. I doubt it's minor because now some weird things are making sense. I wish some of my family was still alive. God Bless
  17. Greetings! ....and with a broken and contrite heart, we must always repent when we sin. In verse 2 below, we can see that this is looking forward to the time when the shed blood of Jesus Christ would completely take away sin. Only on the basis of our heavenly Fatherโ€™s Grace can the saints (believers) approach their God. Psalm 51:1-2 51 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. 2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. Psalm 51:17 17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, A broken and a contrite heartโ€” These, O God, You will not despise.
  18. I am thinking last is here in Wales oh look I am right

    How interesting! This Roman Empire map above shows Rome did not go further east than the Levant. I find it interesting that all the maps Alive posted showed the empires stretching to the Indus valley. The Islamic map I posted shows the same.
