    • God is not Hate. That is of the devil.   Scripture states, "God is Love".  If Jesus, the Word of God, says, 'God is Love', then Jesus is also speaking of Himself. "The Father and I are One". Therefore, we can understand, the nature of Jesus is Love.  Look at the thief on the cross, he cared nothing for himself, but showed compassion to Jesus. Compassion, a form of Love. Christ was already present in the thief, even before Jesus told him " today you'll be with me in Paradise."
    • Heres your throne evidence you have been asking for.   The three are around the throne right now btw. It isnt some future event.       ◄ 1 John 5:7 ► For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary 5:6-8 We are inwardly and outwardly defiled; inwardly, by the power and pollution of sin in our nature. For our cleansing there is in and by Christ Jesus, the washing of regeneration and the renewing of the Holy Ghost. Some think that the two sacraments are here meant: baptism with water, as the outward sign of regeneration, and purifying from the pollution of sin by the Holy Spirit; and the Lord's supper, as the outward sign of the shedding Christ's blood, and the receiving him by faith for pardon and justification. Both these ways of cleansing were represented in the old ceremonial sacrifices and cleansings. This water and blood include all that is necessary to our salvation. By the water, our souls are washed and purified for heaven and the habitation of saints in light. By the blood, we are justified, reconciled, and presented righteous to God. By the blood, the curse of the law being satisfied, the purifying Spirit is obtained for the internal cleansing of our natures. The water, as well as the blood, came out of the side of the sacrificed Redeemer. He loved the church, and gave himself for it, that he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word; that he might present it to himself a glorious church, Eph 5:25-27. This was done in and by the Spirit of God, according to the Saviour's declaration. He is the Spirit of God, and cannot lie. Three had borne witness to these doctrines concerning the person and the salvation of Christ. The Father, repeatedly, by a voice from heaven declared that Jesus was his beloved Son. The Word declared that He and the Father were One, and that whoever had seen him had seen the Father. And the Holy Ghost, who descended from heaven and rested on Christ at his baptism; who had borne witness to Him by all the prophets; and gave testimony to his resurrection and mediatorial office, by the gift of miraculous powers to the apostles. But whether this passage be cited or not, the doctrine of the Trinity in Unity stands equally firm and certain. To the doctrine taught by the apostles, respecting the person and salvation of Christ, there were three testimonies. 1. The Holy Spirit. We come into the world with a corrupt, carnal disposition, which is enmity to God. This being done away by the regeneration and new-creating of souls by the Holy Spirit, is a testimony to the Saviour. 2. The water: this sets forth the Saviour's purity and purifying power. The actual and active purity and holiness of his disciples are represented by baptism. 3. The blood which he shed: and this was our ransom, this testifies for Jesus Christ; it sealed up and finished the sacrifices of the Old Testament. The benefits procured by his blood, prove that he is the Saviour of the world. No wonder if he that rejects this evidence is judged a blasphemer of the Spirit of God. These three witnesses are for one and the same purpose; they agree in one and the same thing.
    • Hi Retro, I agree that the Gentiles are now included into the household of God, fellow citizens with the saints. `Now therefore ye (the Gentile Ephesians to whom Paul was writing) are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints (the holy ones; that is, the ones consecrated for God), and of the household of God;..`  (Eph. 2: 19) (as you wrote) However the assumption that we are now part of Israel has NO biblical foundation. Let`s look at some scriptures. `These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, they were assured of them, embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For those who say such things, declare plainly that they seek a homeland. And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return. But now they desire a better, that is, a HEAVENLY COUNTRY. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.` (Heb. 11: 13 - 16) Here we see the OT saints (Israelis and some Gentiles) who believed God for the promise of a heavenly city. We read on further and see that they await their inheritance in the General Assembly. `But you have come to Mount Zion, and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the General Assembly and Church of the first born who are registered in heaven, to God the judge of all, to the spirits of just men (& women) made perfect, to Jesus, the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.` (Heb. 12: 22 - 24) So the OT saints are awaiting their inheritance, the heavenly city, in the General Assembly. Now notice the other group (besides angels) the Church of the first-born. They are also there but distinguished from the OT saints. If we are all in Israel then it would only say - the righteous ones. However God`s word is very specific and says - the Church of the first-born registered in heaven...and the just (righteous men and women) made perfect, (by their righteous works. Heb. 11: 33). The Body of Christ on the other hand is made perfect, righteous through Christ. The OT saints never had that possibility. Then we read of the two inheritances - `God having provided something BETTER  for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us.` (Heb. 11: 40) We, the Body of Christ have our inheritance in God`s great kingdom and so do the OT saints (& others) also in a part of God`s great kingdom. The question then is where are the different ones placed that God has specifically delineated in His word. regards, Marilyn. 
    • You wrote, "Why must I spoon feed yet again?" For a start you can drop the wise cracks and smart comments. There's no need for any of them. This is a discussion not a competition. You are not our teacher and we are not your students. Rev. 17: 18, And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth. The great whore is a city that has a kingdom reigning over the ten kingdoms.  Playing the whore in symbolic language always refers to religious fornication and idolatry  Rev. 17:1-4, Isa. 23:17; 57:3-7; Jer. 3:2-9; Ez. 16:1-63; 20:30-32; 23:7-49; Hos. 4:2-19; nah. 3:4. Literal fornication must also be understood in some of these. Her causing many nations to commit fornication with her, proves that idolatrous religious practices are being referred to, as in passages above. She is not a political power for she is not classed as one of t"he kings of the earth." She only causes the kings and inhabitants of the earth to be drunk with the wine of her fornication (v 2-4). Since fornication her refers to religious harlotry then her influence over the nations is through religion. The beast which the woman rides is the 8th kingdom, made up of the many waters or peoples inside the old Roman Empire territory (v 1, 3, 11, 15). Since the beast itself is the kingdom, the woman must be religion dominating the kingdom until she is destroyed by it (v 12-17). The attire of the "great Whore" identifies her as a religious system or as a whore committing spiritual fornication, duping political powers by her whordoms and idolatries (v 4.). The purple, scarlet, precious stones, pearls, and golden vessels indicate the wealth of the system. Cp. Ez. 23:40-41. The golden cup in her hand, full of her unclean-ness, spiritual fornication, and abominations by which she dupes political powers proves her to be a religious power. Cp. Ez. 23:23-29. Her mane "MYSTERY BABYLON" indicates she is not LITERAL BABYLON. The word mystery identifies her with the religious rites and mysteries of ancient Babylon. The name MOTHER OF HARLOTS identifies the whore as a religious system (v 5), The harlots refer to many branches which have sprung from her and have become as much apostate as the great whore herself. She is a symbol of apostate religions being linked together  after the rapture of the church to dominate the ten kings of the revised Roman Empire until Antichrist comes to full power over the ten kingdoms by the middle of Daniels 70th Week (v 1, 3, 9-17). The MOTHER OF ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH identifies her to be a religious system fostering and tolerating all the aboninations that go with idolatry and spiritual fornications. The word abominations is used many times of idolatry and whordoms associated with pagan worship (Dt. 18?9-12; 29:17-18; 32:16-17; 1 Kings 14:24; 2 Kings 16:3-4; 21:2-11; Ez. 16:22-58). The great whore of the future tribulation will be the mother of abominations in God's sight because she will exceed all others in wickedness. Her drunkenness - being drunk with the blood of martyrs of Jesus, proves beyond doubt that she is a religious institution. Only religion has killed the martyrs if Jesus in all ages. Governments have carried out the dictates of leaders in religion, doing the actual killing of saints because of religion. Although this prophecy speaks of the future drunken-ness of Mystical Babylon after the rapture of the church, who among us does not know of the martyrdom of 200,000,000 people in the past because they would not conform to organized religion?

      I've decided to not create anymore new threads for now, and I've deleted the old ones with no activity.  I will still address questions asked of me, but I'm going to spend more time writing on other websites in the near future, especially gun websites.  I may write some Op-Ed pieces on politics, society, and western culture.  But primarily I'm going to be writing a fictional story offline.  I want to see if I have any talent there which would make it easier to retire.  There's an engineering design I'd like to work on too, but I'm keeping the details to myself.

      Romans 8:35-39
      35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
      36As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
      37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
      38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
      39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
