  2. What is God like?

    Hello, I was praying yesterday and I had a few thoughts about what God really is like. 1. If God is a Spirit, than what does that look like? If we're made in God's image than does that mean he has a literal face like a person? Sometimes in Scripture, God seems to be personified. Other times, he seems more intangible. 2. Can any person right now look at God and live? Sorry if that seems like a dumb question. Is Christ the only way to look at God and live? 3. How do you know that you are truly getting to know God? Sometimes I have moments where I seem to "get it" and the Holiness, goodness, and love of God seems very clear. Other times, I feel like I'm just talking to myself during prayer, though less often lately.
  3. Spokesman Mark DeMoss tell The Associated Press that Graham died Wednesday morning at his home in Montreat, North Carolina. He had been treated in recent years for cancer, pneumonia and other ailments. His wife, Ruth, died in 2007. Graham reached more than 200 million through his appearances and millions more through his pioneering use of television and radio. Unlike many traditional evangelists, he abandoned narrow fundamentalism to engage broader society. His message and service to U.S. presidents from Dwight Eisenhower to George W. Bush earned him the nickname “America’s Pastor.” In 1995 his Evangelistic Association designated his son William Franklin Graham III as the ministry’s leader. http://fox8.com/2018/02/21/the-rev-billy-graham-passes-away-at-99/
  4. 2. What is The Mark of The Beast

    No, but our spiritual enemy manifests himself and lures others using physical objects.
  5. Thanks for everyone's answers. Gratitude is something I can focus on when I'm tempted to grumble. But I've noticed that this is a sin I've had very close to my heart. Feeling like I have the right to complain in certain situations. I think when I take these thoughts captive and focus on what I'm thankful for in that moment, I'm less likely to complain.
  6. Michael's relationship to the middle of the week

    Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Omegaman, I just watched the videos, you did a good job confronting the real reason so many get this wrong. So many need the restrainer to be the Holy Spirit to help prop up an eschatological system that has no explicit evidence. Thank you Hallelujah
  7. I am so sad

    I wonder if we could all pray for my upstairs neighbors. The mother, son and his girlfriend. They are one of the tenants that get into screaming fights. The son is a customer of the drug dealers across the hall from me. The son is a friendly, relatively quiet person but once the mother and girlfriend come home then the fights start. They are all hurting people and need our prayers. There are many angry people in this apartment complex that need prayer as well.
  8. Given Me Hope

    What does it matter? You sound like a doubting Thomas. No offense. I’m trying to share something good - something that brought me a glimpse of hope and it seems like you are trying to take that away with judgment.

    No, that source judges all media outlets fairly. It is used by anyone who is looking for facts and needs to verify a source. You will notice they list MSNBC as a liberal biased source that publishes misleading stories and may be untrustworthy. It rates CNN pretty accurately as well
  10. I've never understood how the death of Christ could fall outside the framework of the 70 weeks since that event is central to the prophecy. Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place. Daniel 9:24 And the event that makes this possible doesn't take place during the 70 weeks?

    In order for a hadith to be valid, it can not contradict the Qu'ran in any way. The hadiths you quoted contradict Qur’an. The best example would be the second one where it contradicts the Qur'an in two ways. First, the Qur’an does not prescribe death sentence for adultery, rape, or fornication. It calls for a punishment of 100 lashes. In that hadith the death sentence has been mentioned for adultery which is inconsistent with the Qur'an. Also as I said already, the Qur’an does not prescribe a death sentence for apostasy. Therefore neither of those hadiths can not be used to justify the death penalty for apostasy in Islam.
  13. 1.What is the Mark of the Beast

    Absolutely true. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast. Revelation 13:14a I have a slightly different take on it. I think the false prophet (antichrist) will declare Jesus a failure and discredit the entire New Testament as "wishful thinking". Most people aren't offended at the mention of "God" but bring up the name of Jesus and all of a sudden there are issues. I think that the "interfaith" crowd plays into it as well. And why would Pope Francis say that Jesus failed at the cross?

    You don't associate "the gathering" and "his coming" with the rapture?
  15. See I knew you was all wet

    It is FAR MORE that guessing. It is believing every word Paul wrote in this passage and making sense of every word. An example is, the word "IS" as in "IS revealed" as we read in verse 3b. No one will understand Paul's intent and ignore that word "IS." Most theories of this passage also ignore "And now you know." They have only guesses. Yet in reality Paul TOLD US who is doing this restraining. However, few really believe what Paul is really saying here. The One "taken out of he way" is the One restraining, and the one Restraining must be "taken out of the way" before the man of sin can be revealed. Most theories ignore the theme of the passage: the gathering.

    How many threads are you going to create on the same subject? You should keep each subject in one thread instead of making sub threads of each subject.
  18. Is it just me .... the legacy continues ...

    Hey I live in Swansea and it is almost always wet no matter what your name is
  19. 2. What is The Mark of The Beast

    all I can say to you sir is you need to 2 Tim 2:15 15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. God's Word says it is used to control the populace by monetary means Rev 13:16-17 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. KJV That which is born from functions from - 1 Cor 15:47-48 47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. 48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. KJV Phil 3:19-20 19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) 20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: KJV It is the strength of reality Jesus spoke to Nicodemus John 3:3-7 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? 5 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. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. KJV Worship is not the key to this understanding but possession ... Do we possess the new being by repentance and calling upon the name of The Lord! Are you born from above where the belly is not the priority of Life but Christ alone through His Word Matt 4:4 4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. KJV

    Please note, Paul wrote, AND NOW YOU KNOW...so we SHOULD know, after reading this passage WHO the restrainer is. Sorry, but the Two Witnesses testify during the LAST HALF of the week. But they begin just 3 1/2 days before the midpoint. It is the Holy Spirit who is the restrainer but He works trhough believers.

    Nonsense. Muslims Condemn https://muslimscondemn.com/ I am a follower of Christ who has sacrificed my comfortable life in the West to share the gospel to the lost in places that many sending agencies will not even allow their missionaries to travel to. I speak only the truth. I have proven where your sources can not be trusted. It's sad when members of the Body of Christ take the word of professional propagandists whose intent is to sow discord in the world over a fellow brother or sister.

    I can agree to this from personal experience. Lay your eyes on no wicked thing, if you can help it. It can be difficult, what with such nonsense splattered nearly everywhere, it seems.

    I will agree that we don't know everything there is about God and that it is up to Him to decide who will and will not be saved. His ways are far above our ways that to even think we know how He will judge is arrogant and vain.

    As a Christian I do not entertain videos and other forms of propaganda from websites or individuals who are known to be false witnesses.
  25. Billy Graham passes at 99

    I am sure there will be a lot of news about this, but just wanted to pass this on.
  26. A religion of peace?

    So you are saying that you actually believe that 60,000 Christians were ethnically cleansed in the Philippines in 2013, despite the actual fact that they weren't? If someone lies to you once, do you blindly trust them afterwards? I don't.
  27. A religion of peace?

    Except that it has happened in other countries such as when Muslims slaughtered over 100,000 Timorese Christians in Indonesia, and when Muslims murdered 200 Christians in Nigeria during the 2002 Miss World Pageant. And Christians have been slaughtered in Gaza and Egypt, and not just a few of them. So stories like this are believable and not fake news (except to Muslim propagandists).
