  1. and 17 My understanding is, the Iron Kingdom has stretch itself through a long period of time and is to be revived again in power. The Iron Kingdom is the 4th and it does not mention a 5th, its still the Iron Kingdom when it became weak being mix with the clay. This is when the ten toe kingdom developed and they did not stay together forever with the HRCC. So Daniel 2 the Iron Kingdom and Dan.7 4th beast and Rev.13 1st beast are the same and is history - 1,260 years on the Iron and clay 538 - 1798 HRCC Rev. 13 2nd beasts is the same in Rev. 17 beast, this still has Iron in it because it has been healed -revived. Now some of those country that use to be the ten kingdoms during the dark ages may be Islam now, then they may join in with the iron for the purpose of controlling Israel with in mind to destroy them. So the Iron Kingdom existed from Caesars to the HRCC and going up to our time. That's over 2,000 years. It was strong and it got weaker and then it got wounded and is going to be healed when the Ten kings in our time give its power to it. Its to be the last Kingdom against Israel, showing in Dan.2 the stone sets Israel free. No other Gentiles Kingdom will rule over Israel again.
  2. 1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
  3. John 13:16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him. John 7:28-29 28 Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not. 29 But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.
  4. To make this a concise statement. When you crucified the old man and was raised up a new creature by baptism, you became a new man. The new man still contained the memory of the old man. The new man now has to learn the new man's ways. His mind(heart) needs to be cleaned up. Ephesians 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, The new man can sin, but he has a power now to help him to overcome sin where the old man did not.
  5. Psalm 106:39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions. Ecclesiastes 7:29 Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions. Genesis 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. Jeremiah 19:5 They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind: As we can see, man can and does create his own evil sinful ways against God without it being pre-existed by God. God created Angels and Man good, but not everyone is content with what God has to offer them. Freewill is evil to man, but it is good to God's works to find a freewill being to love him on their own accord. Freedom from God is against God, freedom is allowed, but not allowed by the laws of God.(example: Adam and was commanded not to eat of the tree of Knowledge of Good and evil, but they did it anyway) Evil was permitted to come into existence by a freewill imagination entity but not created by God himself. Just some thoughts.
  6. Of course who planted the tree of knowledge of good and evil ? If its not a real tree of knowledge but its knowledge that is if you eat it there is an evil coming on you. ?? Evil seem to be in an intellectual point of view as well as a calamity. The results only exist as there is someone of higher power to implement it.
  7. We have OT history how God dealt with Israel. He caused the heathen to come against them, in hope they would turn to him. Mostly generally troubles brings a prayer for help, when it gets serious they will do anything to survive. God has and will again raise up and allow the adversary the Devil to stir the minds of the people. Its seems the love of God isn't enough. Just a thought.
  8. Ok, Ok, I flatly was assuming they got a good resurrection there in Matthew 27 because I feel it was the righteous people in the OT that got that resurrection. I see that you think they were alive and well in heaven enjoying eternal life and blessing with the Father before Jesus came.
  9. Galatians 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. They were righteous in certain points, Abraham was believing in the true God and they kept offering up sacrifices for their sins, but looking for the one to come save them completely. What was their blessing was a resurrection from the dead to get justified by Jesus Christ. Which was their resurrection in Matt. 27. They rose from the dead, because they were dead.
  10. Seem to me what you are saying is that Enoch and Elijah were sinless and they by the gospel of God in the OT period avoided death. The Gospel of God OT salvation plan was good enough to save you from death? So the laws of Moses saved Elijah ? If this is so, the purpose of Jesus's death was in vain as Paul said. My understanding is that nobody can receive life until the Messiah came, if that is true then all died before him. Is that not scriptural ?
  11. So did they suffered a painful death when God took them ? If you are referring to them not being dead: We know they didn't go to 3rd heaven to live. Does it not say nobody yet ascended when Jesus said that in John 3:13 ? Also Paul said something about the Law could not give life, then Jesus was in vain if it did. Gal.2:21 Elijah was under the law. Hebrews 11 says the faithful died, coming short of the promise. Malachi 3:16 says they were put into the book of remembrance Ezekiel 18:4 says the soul that sinneth it shall die - all those in the OT died before Christ came. That is how I see it, so I don't think I contradict the scriptures.
  12. Exodus 33:19 And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy. They both died anyway, I don't think they had a suffering death. They died in the faith but short of the promise according to Hebrews 11
  13. Interesting, does it read that the person that is sick is asking for prayer from the elder(minister). Seem like confession is to be made first, then the elder could by the oil showing a sign to others the person has made it right in their sins and then they can now pray for him. 1 Timothy 5:22 Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men's sins: keep thyself pure. I also see it that the oil is not the healing power, its the prayer in this case. The one in Mark, I think the oil did represent the Holy Spirit blessing. Any thoughts on this ?
  14. As for Romans 3:23 is saying that they have all sinned also them that are under the laws of God. If you were under his laws, then you can be able to get a resurrection if you were trying to live it, but they were weak, this was before Jesus came. Hebrews 11 talks of the faithful who came short of the promise and they all died. So they are the one mention in Malachi 3:16 in the book of remembrance. Compare to Ex 32:33 if you read verse 31 they sinned a great sin, which was a harsh punishment for idol worship. I think our name is put in the book of life during our life time. If you are born in a ungodly home then you are also in the class of people and there is no reward for eternal life from God, but if you get converted and serve God he will put you in the book. Then again if you at sometime reject him, you can be blotted out.
  15. I do think most all of Matt 24 is about Israel destruction in 70 AD The other stuff to me is all history during the dark ages. Rev. 13 first beast is history it ruled during the dark ages, but not the one hour eighth beast.
