    • That was the New King James. I like this site: You can type in a verse in question, like Genesis 6:3, and it will show you the verse in a wide variety of translation so that you can compare.
    • 1950, that was a long time ago. The Scribes or teachers of the law were a class of professional exponents and teachers of the law who might belong to either the Sadducee party or the Pharisee party. While any male Jew could read the scripture in the synagogue and give an interpretation of the scripture, scribes were respected teachers who often had pupils who studied the law with them. And they disagreed with most of what Jesus Christ taught. Not much different than today. The Pharisees belonged to a lay movement or party that defined righteousness as observing every detail of traditional rules designed to serve as a "hedge" or "fence" around the commandments. If one kept the traditions, he would not then transgress the law itself. The Pharisees were relatively small in number, but had great influence in First Century Judaism. As strict observers of the traditional, oral law they are somewhat akin to modern-day Hasidic Jews, and some on here! They also disagreed with Jesus and His teachings, like many so called experts these days.
    • You were doing good until you got into supposition on which 'wrath' event Apostle Paul was speaking of, and started misapplying that in attempt to prove a Pre-trib Rapture of the Church. One of the most important understandings missing from those taught the Pre-trib Rapture theory is a thorough study in the Old Testament prophets about the events for the end of this world. Isa 25:6-9
      6 And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined. 7 And He will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations. 8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it. 9 And it shall be said in that day, "Lo, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for Him, we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.
      KJV That is where Apostle Paul was pulling from about death being swallowed up in the 1 Cor.15 chapter regarding the resurrection. The "face of the covering cast over all people", and the "vail that is spread over all nations" that is to be destroyed is about the veil that separates the heavenly from the earthly, ending the things of this present world, like our flesh. The only type of death remaining after Jesus comes per Rev.20 is the "second death", which is only about the death of one's spirit-soul into the "lake of fire". All peoples alive on earth are changed at the twinkling of an eye to their spiritual bodies on the day of Jesus' coming on the day of the Lord, i.e., the last day of this world. That is when Scripture declares the resurrection will happen, on the last day. The specific 'wrath' Apostle Paul was pointing to is about the events on the day of Jesus' 2nd coming as a thief on the day of the Lord. It's that day of God's cup of wrath poured out upon the wicked, the event you quoted from the end of Rev.6 about which the wicked will fear and want to hide. That specific 'wrath' is not the wrath of the previous vials of Rev.16 that occurs during the tribulation. It is a final wrath on the final day of this world that Paul was speaking of in 1 Thess.5. When he said we are not appointed to that 'wrath', he was covering what the deceived will be saying on the day it comes, i.e., "Peace and safety", and then "sudden destruction" comes upon "them", Paul said. That is a day of the Lord timing event. It is also the day Jesus comes to gather His Church, because in Rev.16:15 He said He comes "as a thief" while still warning His Church on earth. That "day of the Lord" is to come "as a thief in the night" Paul and Peter said. In Matt.24, Mark 13, and Luke 21, Jesus was speaking to His elect of His Church, His disciples during the time of His 1st coming. Now Paul said in Ephesians 2 that the foundation of the Church is made up of the prophets, the Apostles, and our Lord Jesus as its Chief Cornerstone, so anyone who tries to say Jesus was not speaking warnings to His Church with His Olivet discourse is 'off their rocker'. And this is when Jesus said He will come to gather His Church per His Olivet discourse: Matt 24:29-31
      29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
      KJV That trumpet of course is that "last trump" you mentioned from Paul in 1 Cor.15. It is also the 7th Trumpet of Rev.11 that will occur with the final 3rd Woe. Immediately after that 7th Trumpet we are shown all the kingdoms of this world becoming those of The Father and of His Son. That shows of a certainty that Christ is at that moment reigning over all nations and peoples on earth. In the Mark 13:24-27 version of this, the saints on earth are gathered, so these two examples, Matt.24:29-31 and Mark 13:24-27 both align perfectly with the order of events Paul gave in 1 Thess.4. Immediately AFTER the tribulation Jesus comes to gather us, and pour out His cup of wrath upon the wicked. He does not come prior to that. No pre-trib rapture. Only a gathering at the second coming at the end of this world.
    • Um... Is this for real? I know the OT talks about God being Husband - But... if someone can enlighten me, Im not sure about singing Jesus is my b'friend.
    • ADDITIONAL WITNESS OF LANGUAGE/ HEBREW GRAMMAR ON THIS VERSE       Gesenius' Hebrew Grammar, the recognized textbook on the Hebrew language opposes the gap with a host of Hebrew Scholars as witnesses: "A student writing a master's thesis on "Fundamental Christianity and Evolution" polled twenty leading Hebrew scholars in the united States, asking them if there were any exegetical evidences of a gap interpretation of Genesis 1:2. They unanimously replied in the negative."  - E.  K. Gedney, Geology and the Bible, "Modern Science and Christian Faith", (Second Edition, 1950), p. 49

      Mona trevino asked , Can God heal anxiety. My answer to you or anybody else is YES, and I'm living proof. Although my story is quite long I would be interested in anyone who might be suffering from depression also, since God healed me of both. God bless you ALL

      I am in pain today.  It's either my back or my kidneys.  I have degenerative disc disease in my back, an 8" diameter growth in my left kidney and only 54% lung function.   In any event, I'm probably not going to be at my best today.
