  1. Discontinuity of the flood boundary

    Hebrews 5:8 (KJV) Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;
  2. God and UFO's

    Right, they're demonic activities meddling with human affairs which they've been doing since Gen 3:15.
  3. Is Time Infinite?

    Did you read what SkyWriter wrote that I agreed to? I quoted it... we were talking about getting attacked on this forum... I don't know what made you leap to anything relating to the Catholics...
  4. Is Time Infinite?

    How can one be saved if they don't repent? Salvation changes us. Without a change, were they truly saved or did they just "buy" false fire insurance through formulated words? Repent in Greek is metanoeo which means "change mind". What folks think is what they are, so if one doesn't change their mind, they're not going to change their actions. The way I see it, repentance is two fold, faith (a strong conviction of a belief) in the Lord's ability to save us, and then His action on the believer, awaking the spirit, and becoming a new creation. See, by Adam we're all sinners. Jesus could save us all unconditionally, but then Adam's sin wouldn't be corrected. What I mean is that because Adam chose his will over that of the Lord's, he usurped the Lord's authority. Adam said God didn't know best and did what he wanted, willingly. So at the point of decision, choice, for salvation, we admit to God "It's your way, alone," restoring God to His rightful place as God alone. Does that make sense? All this can take a millisecond and without a full understanding of the process. So yes, one must repent else they don't recognize God's full authority. This is what I understand how the first Adam affected us all, and the Last Adam didn't automatically save us all. We have a gift from God - choice.
  5. Days of Creation - Must they be Consecutive?

    Revelation 8:12 (KJV) And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. After the two mountains and star hit the earth, a third of the day and a third of the night are removed. Those are time-based reference therefore, a 24 hour rotation period will need to be increased by a third. Therefore, one-third of 24 is 8, leaving 16 hours for the day and night full rotation. To speed up the earth's rotation, they will both hit from the west heading east (oddly, just like the movies) because the earth rotates counter-clockwise. To speed up, we increase our counter-clockwise rotation speed by 8 hours. To clarify, the current 24-hour rotation period (to define a "day") will become a 16-hour rotation period, literally, shortening the times, Matt24:22.

    Me too.
  7. Is Time Infinite?

    @Saved.One.by.Grace and @SkyWriting, I love both your exchange. It's refreshing to see agreement. It seems to me that if the universe in the palm of the Lord's hand, that He knows the end from the beginning, and was slain from the foundation of the earth, then God is outside of time, limiting Himself to create our little bubble which has laws that govern it, and is adjusted on the things not seen. The power of the Spirit excels through the beliefs of men, that is, a strong conviction of a belief will render its existence in the physical from the spiritual. Certainly knowing all the variables will allow the knowing of all possible outcomes, but being outside of time makes the math irrelevant. This is why Paul says we see through a glass darkly, we can't know all the variables, therefore, he said, he doesn't even judge himself, but leaves that up to God. Our actions are not solely based on the brain between our ears, but our heart (deep-seated strongman beliefs), and two brains in our gut. Our gut has the equivalence of a dog or cat's brain with over 100 million brain cells, and the same amount within the collective bacteria living there. All these affect the one between the ears. Just my thoughts.
  8. If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath,

    Nothing I say will get through your mindset based on tradition. I leave it to God's word - which you also choose to ignore. You cannot defend your position so like a real philosopher you turn and attack. You've already proved my stance by your reaction. Thank you for proving me right, even though you'll never see it until you humble yourself. Have a nice day.
  9. If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath,

    Phil 4:6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
  10. Wouldn't it be crazy if science PROVED God!

    It's written into our DNA... Proverbs 25:2 (KJV) It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter. We LOOOOVE puzzles, mysteries, and strategy games. There's always a want to discover. It's a gift from God so we can find Him. Science is just man's attempt at understanding God's creation which points right to Him. But some that discover Him and don't want Him, they'll make up another reason so they don't have to recognize that God is Who He says He is. As the word of God says, it's an honor to find the things He's concealed. In fact, modern "science" was first executed by Christians. No matter how much the scientists want to ignore that God exists, every discovery points right back to Him and what He wrote in His word. After all, it is HIStory.
  11. Wouldn't it be crazy if science PROVED God!

    Scientists even recognize this issue and made up the idea that a previous universe collapsed (like suns do) and as a result exploded to create our universe as a result.
  12. God and UFO's

    Some time ago I remember watching a documentary on UFOs called "Unacknowledged" and what I got from it wasn't about UFOs but about the deep state/dark government existance. Think about the seed planted by the Roswell incident. If actually real, demonic activity; if false, our government introducing a fear that would need to be "dealt with" decades later, also demonic. Either way, it is manipulation. The documentary also stated that since the President of the USA was a temporary government employee, they didn't have the clearance to know the truth. (!!) In it, the guy said that when the government is in trouble, they create a crisis with some madman they have to deal with and they used Hitler and Stalin/Lenin (hot and cold wars) as examples. The point they were making was that at some point there will be spaceships that appear (possibly a false flag man-made by the government or through collusion with demons - my thought) to unite the planet in such a way as to follow one person or idea (like the movie "Arrival"). I recall the word of God says that the antichrist will deceive many with lying wonders like calling fire down from heaven, and a deception so strong it could affect the very elect. A "spaceship" over Manhattan ("Fourth of July") would certainly do that. Most of these shows/documentary can't be taken as fact, but it sure opens the imagination as to how end-time events could occur. What I find amazing is how much people put stock in science ("Cosmos") and don't realize a lot of it is spiritual as well. This is why I love the first "Matrix" movie (the others were junk) where people were living a lie and didn't know how to handle the truth. We're living in the shadows without clarity according to the word of God. As Paul says, we're looking through a glass darkly.
  13. God and UFO's

    To me, the issue is the same since Gen 3:15... destroy the image of God, i.e. man. If you believe in the giants and how they came to be then you can understand the desire of the devil to destroy God's image. When the angels mated with the women, a hybrid was born and they were giants. After a while God said ALL flesh was corrupted and that Noah and his family were the only ones still pure (perfect in his generations). As time went on, the devil continued his assault (giants after the flood) but the means to change all flesh was lost and mankind couldn't live past 80 years old so the evil was put at bay. So the devil could only resort to murdering children. In the USA since 1973, there have been 59.9 million abortions, that is the population of Italy! But worldwide, the number of abortions since 1980 have been over 1.5 BILLION, that's more than the population of China! Steven Spielberg wrote a mini-series about this subject of destroying the image in 2002 called "Taken" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0289830/ that I think hit the nail on the head. All these aliens are nothing more than demons messing with the physical to ruin the image of God. Search for "genetically modified" images online and you'll find (some are photoshopped images) but look for science magazines showing featherless chickens, 20 lbs salmons, glow-in-the-dark mice and pigs. All flesh corrupted. Now you can have designer babies for a price. https://www.nature.com/news/us-science-advisers-outline-path-to-genetically-modified-babies-1.21474 Look at how our society is working on manipulating our thinking on the matter. Evolutionists can't do away with the fact of intelligent design so instead of billions of years, they push it to billions of light years to some aliens who seeds earth. All the sci-fi shows are either about human enhancement, or aliens - benevolent or malevolent. I never saw it, but I remember seeing a trailer where a blue light "raptured" the victims away. I think today, we can imagine Revelations in a whole new light moving from allegorical to literal. But that's just my take.
  14. If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath,

    HUGE Amen!!!
  15. Discontinuity of the flood boundary

    Then you'll love this: Isaiah 45:5-7 (KJV) I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. The word of God is filled with paradox: you must be weak to become strong, you must die to live, you must surrender to win... On a side note, in looking for the truth, there will usually be a counterfeit to choose. The word doubt in Greek means to be torn between two opinions. When Jesus stood before the crowd and they cried out to keep Barabbas, they were choosing "son of the father" which is what Bar-Abbas means, instead of the Son of the Father who is Jesus. Which makes us come full circle regarding the truth. The two camps are: literal reading of the word of God vs. metaphorical/allegorical reading of the word of God. The only time-lapse images we have since the beginning is the word of God. We must go back to the originals to gain the level of understanding we need to the questions we have. Hidden gems are lost in translation like the meaning of Barabbas.
