    • Look I am sorry if I have offended anyone. But there are just some things that people say that I just think are nuts. It may not mean that they are nuts.( I am sure I have even said something nuts a few times in my life)  But what they are saying is nuts. And I just can't help but think that way when something sounds wayyyyy out there to me. And what was being posted by the OP sounded wayyyy out there to me. Would it have been better if I had just said that what they are saying is wayyy out there instead of nuts?
    • John 1 is quite clear about who are the children of God.  12 But as many as received Him, He gave to them authority to become the children of God, to those who believe on His name,
      13 who were born, not of bloods, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but were born of God. Lost folks are not children of God. 
    • George Washington, in his farewell address to the American people, warned that by covert and insidious means, the enemies of America would attempt to hijack the USA and what it stands for: The unity of government which constitutes you one people is also now dear to you. It is justly so; for it is a main pillar in the edifice of your real independence, the support of your tranquility at home, your peace abroad, of your safety, of your prosperity, of that very liberty which you so highly prize. But as it is easy to foresee that, from different causes and from different quarters, much pains will be taken, many artifices employed, to weaken in your minds the conviction of this truth; as this is the point in your political fortress against which the batteries of internal and external enemies will be most constantly and actively (though often covertly and insidiously) directed, it is of infinite moment that you should properly estimate the immense value of your national Union to your collective and individual happiness; that you should cherish a cordial, habitual, and immovable attachment to it; accustoming yourselves to think and speak of it as of the palladium of your political safety and prosperity; watching for its preservation with jealous anxiety; discountenancing whatever may suggest even a suspicion that it can in any event be abandoned; and indignantly frowning upon the first dawning of every attempt to alienate any portion of our country from the rest, or to enfeeble the sacred ties which now link together the various parts. In 1977 – almost 40 years ago -- Douglas Reed posthumously published a little book called The Grand Design, which exposed the conspiracy to destroy America (as well as all nations).  In that book, he made reference to the words of Washington quoted above: The 200th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence has been celebrated and the state of America is woefully different from that prognosis: indeed, George Washington, were he to return, would shrink appalled from the shape he would behold. Inextricably held in the coils of an international conspiracy of which the last eight Presidents were the prisoners, his republic is becoming, de facto if not de jure, a satellite of the Soviet Union and will not see the year 2000 in anything resembling the shape he bequeathed to it. By "covert and insidious methods" (his phrase) the principles and admonitions of his Farewell Speech have been abandoned, and America, like a pirated ship, has lost all control of course and destination. Reed already recognized that the United Nations was actually set up to destroy nations: The conspiracy has gained so much ground in this century that the attempt to bring off the final coup by the time the Christian clock strikes two thousand seems certain to be made. The instrument is ready: the Mafia-like mob in New York called the United Nations: it was created to destroy nations. The conspiracy is so old that efforts to trace its ultimate source flounder in the sands of time: the fanciful might picture it originating with the devil in council [actually there is nothing fanciful about this, since this is really where the conspiracy begins]. It has reappeared periodically through the ages and between times seemed to become dormant or defunct: but it was always there. It is now clear to those who are not afraid of the truth, that the “crowning” of Barack Hussein Obama was meant to destroy America.  In his recent speech to the United Nations (mostly platitudes), he made it clear that the USA should no longer consider itself a sovereign nation, but surrender to a global government:  But I am convinced that in the long run, giving up some freedom of action — not giving up our ability to protect ourselves or pursue our core interests, but binding ourselves to international rules over the long term — enhances our security. And I think that’s not just true for us... But we also have to remember that the choices of individual human beings created a United Nations, so that a war like that would never happen again. The record of the United Nations has been one of standing by while millions have been slaughtered again and again in wars  throughout the world. So to simply refer to a past world war is nonsensical. And to keep naming ISIS as ISIL is even more pathetic, since ISIS was created by Obama and Hillary. We need to see the hijacking of America in light of the rise of the Antichrist. We know that all nations will come under his control, and we can see right now how this will come about through globalization (which will include a one-world religion): And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. (Revelation 13:7,8).
    • Question: "Did Jesus have a tattoo (Revelation 19:16)?"

      Answer: In John’s vision of the Battle of Armageddon, he sees Jesus riding from heaven on a white horse, waging war against the beast’s evil forces. Revelation 19:16 includes this description of Jesus: “On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: king of kings and lord of lords.” Some people have read this verse and concluded that Jesus has a tattoo on His thigh—and, therefore, tattoos are good and proper for all followers of Christ today.

      However, Jesus was, and is, a Jew. The Jewish Law warns, “Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD” (Leviticus 19:28). Jesus, as an obedient Jew, bound by Mosaic Law, would not take a tattoo. Jesus came to Earth to fulfill the Mosaic Law, not violate it (Matthew 5:17).

      So then, what does it mean that on Jesus’ robe and on His thigh He has “King of Kings and Lord of Lords” written?

      The book of Revelation is filled with symbolism, and the description in Revelation 19:16 is symbolic. In the same passage, Jesus’ eyes are said to be “like blazing fire” (verse 12), His robe is soaked in blood (verse 13), and there’s a sword coming out of His mouth (verse 15). Obviously, none of these descriptions are literal; the name written on Jesus’ thigh is probably figurative, too. The mention of the name being written on His robe and His thigh could very well mean that the words were not on His skin at all; rather, they were written on the part of His robe that covered His thigh.

      In ancient times, a king or noble would often have his title or honorific woven into his garments and engraved upon his blade, its hilt, or its scabbard. Given that the scabbard would hang from a band at the waist, the words on the scabbard would fall at roughly thigh level. This would be a reasonable explanation, given that Jesus would never violate Levitical law by taking a tattoo.

      Another possibility is that Christ is pictured as wearing a banner, or a sash, which extends from shoulder to thigh, and it is on this banner that “King of Kings and Lord of Lords” is written.

      In any case, it does not seem that Jesus has an actual tattoo. The best way to confirm the truth of the matter is to be with Jesus when He returns to wage war upon those who have taken the mark of the beast. You can see for yourself.

    • Well brother you are free to twist the scripture to whatever purpose you wish. I do not wish to continue to promote deception and contention. Your perspectives are very opinion based rather than scriptural. It is written that thse things of the spirit are only discerned by those born of the Spirit. I was asked for sound scriptural evidence, which I provided. I would like to note that your continued intent here is to cause dissent, promote disunity, promote deception and continue to cast condemnation on both the Word of God and its minister. These things reflect the spirit of satan; not that of God. I will wash my hands of this matter and simply let God dictate what shall be done with one so iven to deception, hatred and condemnation; for the Word is clear on this.
