• I Stand With Israel Petition

    We want to send a strong, encouraging message to President Donald Trump concerning the importance of the nation of Israel in relation to God’s Word. Mr. Trump has already made strong statements supporting Jerusalem as Israel's capital and the nation's right to exist and defend herself. Let’s be sure to support President Trump in his decision and encourage him to follow through on his affirmations concerning Jerusalem and the Promised Land. Our goal is to deliver a petition of 1,000,000 signatures to President Trump. Read our Petition!

    • Yes, he could come at anytime after His death, as long as it was after the day of Pentecost, after Peter would die with his arms outstretched, after the destruction of the temple buildings, after the time of the birthpangs, after the the gospel was preached to all nations, after the the abomination of desolation is manifest, after the tribulation, after the sun does dark, the moon turns red, after the stars fall from the sky, and other things I am sure I am leaving out.
    • The Church as the People of God of the New Covenant, isn’t a correct statement as it is only individuals who qualify according to their faith and righteousness. In the New Testament no emphasis is given to any select group, but only to the whole company of what the NT calls ‘the elect,’ ‘the saints,’ ‘the disciples,’ ‘the brothers and sisters.’ If we recognise that all baptised believers make up the Body of Christ and the People of God, we won’t make the mistake of identifying the Church with the clergy. The Church is always the whole People of God, the whole ekklesia, the whole Body of Christ, the whole communion (fellowship, koinonia) of the disciples of Jesus. It includes lay persons,  clergy and non church people. All baptised born again believers make up and belong together to the chosen race, the royal priesthood, the holy nation. This implies a second conclusion: that as Christians, all members of the Church are fundamentally equal. All equally have been called by God to belong, all equally have been justified by Christ, all equally have been sanctified by the Holy Spirit. All equally have been called to respond to the message, the person and the work of Christ, by their faith, their commitment, their cooperation, their trust and their love. In principle also, all are equally responsible for the Church’s work in the world, its mission to spread to Gospel. The gifts of the Spirit result in different services, tasks, functions and offices, but they are secondary to the fundamental membership in the Church which is based on true belief, and to the life of discipleship which stems from keeping the Commandments and doing the works according each persons situation.  What counts more than any ministry or office, however exalted, is whether we live authentically as members of the chosen People of God. Do we live in faith, hope and love our covenant                                                     relationship with God and with our fellow disciples of Jesus? For, more than anything, the Church is the community of the disciples of Jesus. Everything else is secondary and subordinate to that. The shared call to baptism and discipleship has meant that from the beginning all kinds of people, sometimes persons naturally opposed, have joined the Church and belonged to the Church. Jews and Gentiles, free citizens and slaves, rich and poor, men and women, have shared with one another in the life of the Church as fellow disciples of Jesus Christ, their Lord. An important point is that only  through Jesus, has every Christian become the People of God of the New Covenant.  This has happened ‘in Christ,’ as Paul says. This truth raises two questions, vital questions in Christian-Jewish dialogue and reconciliation today:   1. Has God rejected His ethnic people and been unfaithful to his promises? 2. Have the Jews ceased to be the People of God?  These are difficult questions, which have been debated by Bible scholars and theologians for many years. To both of these questions the Apostle Paul has given a decisive ‘No!’ But as we see today, most Jews continue to reject Jesus.  So; who exactly is the Israel of God now? We know from Romans 9:27, that Israel is as numerous as the sands of the sea and 1 Peter 1:1 and James 1:1 both send greetings to the Twelve Tribes, scattered abroad. The Jews alone do not fit either of these criteria. The truth, that God has kept hidden from general knowledge, is that the ten Northern tribes, taken to the Caucasus region by Assyria did not remain there and they migrated across Europe, they now comprise most of the Western peoples and have become the Christian nations. That God’s Plan to have a people that bear the proper fruit; as the Jews rejected Him, Matthew 21:43, HAS been successful and that Western Christians are mostly Israelites: actual descendants of Jacob, is nothing short of miraculous and shows God’s amazing Plan of sending Jesus to be our Redeemer and Saviour, to be God’s fulfilment of Deuteronomy 18:18-19, Acts 7:37  Note: that Jesus came to be our Redeemer. To redeem someone means to reinstate them, to buy them back again from a fallen state. Our destiny as born again Christians, is to be the people God has never had, His witnesses, Isaiah 43:10 and displaying His Light to the nations. Isaiah 49:8. It will be our privilege and our honour, as He showers His Spirit and His Blessings upon His righteous people, as they live in peace and prosperity in all of the holy Land.  Amos 9:13-15, Isaiah 35:1-10, Ezekiel 39:25-29, Revelation 7:9   The acceptance of the Gospel by some Jews like Paul means that their apostasy is not total. But the bulk of the ethnic Christian Israel of God are His people who have forgotten their ancestry. In the end times, their eyes will be opened and their ears unstopped; Isaiah 32:3-4 All the true righteous and faithful Christian people from every tribe, race, nation and language, Revelation 5:9-10, will be citizens of the new nation of Beulah, Isaiah 62:1-5, in all of the holy Land, but in order to fulfil God’s promises to the Patriarchs, the majority will be the actual descendants of Jacob. Amos 9:9, Jeremiah 50:4-7 As Paul asserts: in the end "all Israel will be saved.” That is: every ethnic Israelite faithful to God, will enter the holy Land, accompanied by every true Christian Gentile, all members of the Israel of God, Isaiah 56:1-8, Ephesians 2:1-18, but those Jews and Israelites who reject Him will not. Ezekiel 20:34-38, Hebrews 10:26-27  
    •   His second coming     . . . . . Has been a possibility from His death.

    • You're right, thinking and talking about it only makes it worse. I came up with a saying for this. When someone hurts you often you need to tell someone to get it off your chest. But if you keep talking about it too long instead of getting it off your chest you just dig it in deeper. I have to stop talking about this. I wanted opinions and I got them. We are to forgive regardless of the others. God would like to see perfection and it would be perfect to forgive no matter what the others do.  I'm sorry this happened to you too. Thank you for responding to me.

      I am currently intermittently writing on Worthy Christian forums.  It's not the site or the people, it's my health.  There's something wrong and I don't know what.  I am loosing my balance a lot and feel light-headed occasionally during the day.  I'm having a hard time focusing at times, but at other times, I seem to be 100%.  I've been to the doctor and everything checks out.  My blood sugar is under control as far as I can tell, but I am forgetful besides being light-headed.  With all the meds I take for high blood pressure, anxiety, epilepsy, diabetes, three kinds of arthritis, etc., I haven't varied my routine at all.  It's important to have a routine when taking meds, especially that many.  When I see my PCP in three months, I'm going to ask him if I can reduce my dependence on the blood pressure medicine.  I have, come to think of it, taken more aspirin lately for a previous stroke, but it is interfered with by my blood pressure medicine.  Since my blood pressure was 112/70 last visit, I should be able to cut it down and take 81.5 mg aspirin at a different time.  I really need the NSAID for my degenerative disc disease.  The doctor is trying to get me to reduce my anti-anxiety med which I've been taking since the '80s but that's the only thing working on the side effects of the epilepsy meds.  I am going to resist that if at all possible and legal.  Epilepsy drugs have nasty side effects which change a persons interaction with others.  The anti-anxiety meds keep me normal, for me.  [Normal for me is zero profanity, never giving a second thought for going the extra mile for others, etc.  It helps me be the Christian God wants me to be.]
      Then my wife tells me my stomach is sticking out more.  This could be the non-cancerous mass in my kidneys (non-smoker) or the fact I've regained about 10-12 lbs. since I lost 30 lbs. with my type 2 diabetes diagnosis. 
      If you read this far thanks.  I just felt the need to unburden myself and trust God for taking care of me.  Thanks for reading.

      Proclamation:  According to Isaiah 61, my Lord Jesus is here to heal my broken heart, to proclaim liberty to my captivity, to open the prison door wide wherever I am bound!  I am a planting of the Lord that brings glory to His name!  My soul will greatly rejoice in the Lord, and my soul will be joyful in my God... He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, and He has covered me with the robe of His righteousness.  For as the earth brings forth its bud, as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, so the LORD GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth from me!

      Hey, im back just to say how wonderful it is to have supporters in my current non-belief and how much I appreciate the fact that there are people in this world who believe I can be saved, and I want you to know that this makes me very happy to know this. Thank you for your kindness.
