    • Please do not be so silly. I do not owe my salvation to observing some of the law. I am still learning. The vacuum cleaner animals that God uses to clean up our habitat, I do NOT want to eat those critters. There are some fairly good medical reasons it has been discovered too. The WORD gave the law (and I do not mean the added words of man). The WORD came and sacrificed Himself for us. He also complied with the law He gave to us all. Nothing has or will pass from the law. My Savior KEPT the law and saved me from its consequences, by proxy, as I am in Him, I also keep the law since He is my Redeemer and Propitiation.
      The Judaizers had a hard time giving up the law and the Apostles were spending a lot of time and effort on them. As did the church fathers, who told the early Christians to do away with the Judaistic (added) components of the Sabbath in order to fully appreciate it as God's Eternal Day of Rest. We are continually warned about replacing Yeshua's salvation with works of the law. Ipso facto. we are NEVER told to ignore the Law or that it will pass.

      All that man's doctrines accomplish is to water down the WORD of YAHWEH and confuse Yeshua's believers. We are not told in scripture that Yeshua replaced the Sabbath (as many claim).
      We are not told in scripture that Yeshua is our Sabbath (as many claim). We ARE told that not one jot or tittle will pass from the Law, until Yahweh ends the age(s) and time is cancelled for eternity's reign.
    • 35 Jesus heard that they had put him out, and finding him, He said, "Do you believe in the Son of Man?" 36 He answered, "Who is He, Lord, that I may believe in Him?" 37 Jesus said to him, "You have both seen Him, and He is the one who is talking with you." 38 And he said, "Lord, I believe." And he worshiped Him. 39 And Jesus said, "For judgment I came into this world, so that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may become blind." 40 Those of the Pharisees who were with Him heard these things and said to Him, "We are not blind too, are we?" 41 Jesus said to them, "If you were blind, you would have no sin; but since you say, 'We see,' your sin remains."
    • If we heed our Lord, He also told us to be on guard against false prophets and deception. The other extreme, which sadly much of the Church is following today due to the 'emergent church' influence, is to downplay prophecy and doctrinal error. Mat 24:4-5
      (4)  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
      (5)  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. Mat 24:11
      (11)  And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.  Mat 24:24-25
      (24)  For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
      (25)  Behold, I have told you before.  1Ti 4:1
      (1)  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;  2Ti 3:13
      (13)  But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.  2Pe 2:1-2
      (1)  But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
      (2)  And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.  2Pe 3:3-4
      (3)  Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
      (4)  And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.  Jud 1:3-4
      (3)  Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
      (4)  For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.  So yes, there are devices of the enemy that we are not to be ignorant of.
       
    • I guess it's possible that such could be the case.  We know that there have been other "world" kingdoms so what's so special about those seven heads?  I think it has to do with the sons of Israel. The beast I see as an evil angel, not a man, since he comes up out of the abyss.  Do you know of anything in scripture that suggests that anything other than evil spirit beings inhabit the abyss?  I haven't found anything.  I understand that people say "who is like the beast" so you might be inclined to think that they actually see him, but it is also said that they worshiped the dragon.  I see it as a proxy situation having to do with the interplay between the evil trio (Satan, the beast, the false prophet).  Worship of one is worship of all. I think the question needs to be asked, "Why would Satan give his power, throne, and great authority to anyone else?"  I think he does so for the purpose of entering the false prophet and deceiving the world by tapping into that power he just gave to the beast, hence the phrase "in the presence of the beast".  Being confined to the fleshly shell of the false prophet must limit his power so he temporarily gives it to the beast so he can access it.  I see the Satan possessed false prophet as the only human in the evil trio. And I agree with your earlier thought on the 10 horns.  I see them as evil angels who also have human counterparts. I think this is born in the fact that three of them (human) are torn out by the roots (destroyed, dead Daniel 7:8), while all ten (angelic) wage war against the Lamb (Rev 17:14).  
    • Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur Yom Kippur is "the tenth day of [the] seventh month"[5] (Tishrei) and is regarded as the "Sabbath of Sabbaths". Rosh Hashanah (referred to in the Torah as Yom Teruah) is the first day of that month according to the Hebrew calendar. On this day forgiveness of sins is also asked of God. Yom Kippur completes the annual period known in Judaism as the High Holy Days or Yamim Nora'im ("Days of Awe") that commences with Rosh Hashanah.   thanks for pointing that out Shiloh. Yes Yom Kipper= Day of Atonement comes after, but not far after. Yeah that makes sense then , that Christ Jesus was born around sukkot time (the first night).

      I'm getting tired of the constant battles and bickering.  To be clear, it is physically and mentally affecting me.  Why am I here?  Would I even be missed if I was gone?  I am losing my enthusiasm for interacting with fellow Christians here.  The anti-science thinking here is a bit much to take at times.
      I am thinking of confining myself to just Secret Societies in the Controversial section, Firearms and maybe Photography.  If people aren't interested in what I think and just what to change my thinking to theirs, what am I doing here?  They don't need me to validate their own opinions.  I value my time more than that.

      Hi, willa! Good afternoon!
      I paid you this visit to tell you that, a week ago, I watched this type of parrots (
      ) flying east of Caracas. They were more than 12 birds in couples (at 50 mt high), and this is very unusual that neighbourhood, and I love their heavy and magnificent way of their movements (although I´m not a bird watcher)
