    • Paul talks about a sin unto death and I think that's physical death not spiritual- so I do believe that the Lord will take unruly children home early-- yes I agree
    • Not at all. The authority of the husband is so clearly spelled out in Scripture, that it should not be in conflict with anything else. At the same time husbands are commanded to love their wives as Christ loved the Church (Eph 5:15). Which means that this authority must not be abused but applied in love.  Why does Scripture says that "the Head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is the man, and the Head of Christ is God"? (1 Cor 11:3)  Because certain relationships are essential to understanding the hierarchy within the Godhead as well as the hierarchy within the home and within the church. Even though Christ is fully God and equal to God, the Father is the authority over the Son. So "the Head of Christ is God [the Father]".  Yet all authority has been delegated by the Father to the Son (Mt 28:18, where "power" is the translation for exousia = authority). It follows that the Son is the authority over every Christian man.  Therefore the Christian man is the authority over his wife.  This is God-delegated authority, not be lightly dismissed, or confused because Scripture speaks of mutual submission among believers.  This goes all the way back to Genesis 3:16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. So Peter tells wives in 1 Peter 3:6:  Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.
    • Hi Brakelite  Jeremiah 4:27   For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end.   Jeremiah 4:28   For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it. When the Lord returns, the heavens will indeed be black.  Because just prior to that we have all the nations warring.  This will cause a significant amount of smoke the air, and put that together with the smoke caused by the the 1st angel (1/3 of trees and grass burnt).....we have an atmosphere so polluted, and black caused from men alone.  This blackness of smoke is not caused from God but from our own doings.  This is how it ends up, what man did to the earth.   Man cannot spiritually imprison an angel, but Christ can. Were not the angels of genesis imprisoned?  Those who went into the daughters of men?  Will they not be let out again during the 5th trumpet, ....and their chiefs at the 6th trumpet?  Where have they been all these years?  In a spiritual prison put inside the earth,...(the deep) that only he who has the keys can open and shut. If Satan is locked up because God does not want him to deceive the nations until the 1000 years expire, the there must be nations still about?  I can see you are picturing an empty earth with no inhabitants, and Satan being punished by just being there in a black earth all alone...but what about when Satan gets released? Revelation 20:7   And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

      Revelation 20:8   And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. It says the nations are in the four quarters of the earth when Satan is released from his prison.  There are nations still around.  I don't see how the nations can disappear, then reappear again?   Words in red italics are mine, please consider.  Ezekiel 38:8   After many days thou shalt be visited (Satan): in the latter years (after the 1000 years of rest) thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword (recovered from war), and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them. Satan will do it all over again when he is released.  He will attack that Camp of the Saints where Israel is dwelling safely.  He will wage another war, using a man again of his choice called Gog, and Magog his armies.

        Ezekiel 38:9   Thou shalt ascend (rise up from the abyss) and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.

        Ezekiel 38:10   Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:

        Ezekiel 38:11   And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,

        Ezekiel 38:12   To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
        Satan has been locked up for a thousand years.  The nations have been living without wars, and the kingdom on earth, Holy Jerusalem is dwelling safely because Christ is with them, and the saints, and those dwelling in the kingdom (Israel) have been taught truth.  They are protected, but Satan does not know much, because he has been put away for a thousand years. He gets released and he sees certain nations that have had no rain, people are hungry, because God has not blessed them....they are helpless to do anything,.....then he sees this other kingdom he knew nothing about. The last he saw of it, he had turned it into a wasteland, through war, but now it's changed, it's borders are lengthened, it's landscape is different, the land is restored to a beautiful paradise, and the people living inside there are all dwelling in peace.  This kingdom he never saw before is rich in all things.  Food in abundance, cattle, goods, ....and all those riches, the gold and silver I told you about before is in there.  So that's the idea he gets in his head.  To stir up the afflicted, and gather them to make war, to attack the kingdom with no walls, and take a great booty.  All this happens after the thousand years.  Satan must be so surprised to see all the Jews in there, because last he knew, he destroyed most of them spiritually and physically, but here they are thriving. There are some exciting times ahead my friend.  Do not let Satan rob us of our treasures (truth).  Satan knows his time is short, but knowledge has been blocked from him concerning all of God's plan.  God has shown his plan to those who love him and seek truth, but not Satan.  He's got some surprises coming his way. There are hundreds of scriptures that give us a glimpse of what will happen during those 1000 years, and after - concerning that last final war. Please do not write them off, because they have been given to us to seek, and understand. Only after all this has taken place, will God bring on the second judgement, all the goats into the Lake of fire, and the sheep will be "changed" to spirit.  All we have left now are converted souls, who are just like the angels, spirit.  No flesh is left.  Only after this can the earth be melted and re-made.  Heaven and earth will be as one.  No division. God bless.      
    • I think healthy boundaries can play an important role in a Christian's life. Boundaries are all about protection and safety. They are all about self control. They are also all about saying NO. It teaches us to be appropriately assertive.
    • I think that is a healthy and a Christian way to look at this. A Christian should take an honest look at themselves and ask if they are pushing buttons. They should ask God to search their heart on this issue and to help them take a Christian approach.

      Hi Theo,
      I just finished reading your cry for help in prayer, girl what you wrote sounds like what I too am living with, nearly word for word!  I am sorry that you are going through this, I KNOW how hurtful and grievous it is to bare.  If I didn't know any better I could easily say you are me (only I am 64 and have been married to the man for 42 years).
      It is so hard when you are crying out for prayer and all people want to do is throw scriptures at you when you are drowning! 
      Here is a short video on You Tube by Brene' Brown on Empathy, it is great, so true and yet humorous; it is less than 3 minutes long.  I love it!
      Yes, I can pray for you because I understand.  I am married to a headstrong narcissist.
      I too am having ear problems, noise intolerance and anxiety, just found out today that they are connected; who would have thought that, I sure didn't!?

      Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.

      Not feeling school this semester. Fed up, burnt out and just thinking I bit off more than I can chew. A lot going on, and I am finding it harder to cope with the physical pain since starting back to work. Could use lots of prayer....
