  1. Michael's relationship to the middle of the week

    Forget all the commentary. Superimpose this over the center of your chart, and you will have it:
  2. It's Not Our Tribulation And We Want It Now

    Matthew 10:34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword."
  3. "JUDGMENTAL"

    Right on!
  4. When I was at the end of myself knowing that I had arrived in my downward spiral at the place where people take their own life, I cried out to God and told Him I would not - and He answered. It is He who is our husband, the rest is just the role we were assigned. But what we do, we do by choice, and it is accredited to us, it becomes us - it is us.
  5. Marriage between a man and a woman as God has defined it has been revealed in these last days to be an example of God's love for us and His plans to be One with us and we with Him. The example roll of the man portrays God, and the example roll of the woman portrays the Church, His bride. All of which makes homosexual relationships and marriage either God/God, or Mankind/Mankind - either way, it's a death sentence.
  6. 1.The Rapture Theory

    This Jesus did "quickly" soon after He ascended, just as He said He would. Or is it the testimony of your spirit that Jesus has not come in [your own] flesh? The Mount of Olives is a parable on the olive doors of the Holy of Hollies, through which He has returned in the power of the Spirit, and the "divide' is God's judgement. Therefore, John's test is of the spirit of Christ in the flesh, and not only of the flesh as when He first came. How then will you answer, has He come into you, proving that He has come a second time, or not?
  7. 1.The Rapture Theory

    You have proven nothing. But perhaps you would like to make just one point that was false. Even one.
  8. 1.The Rapture Theory

    No. You should have read the whole passage, for you have done exactly what it says not to do: 8 Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power. ...Instead of answering my simple questions honestly, that should have shown you that God who is spirit is greater than the flesh that "cannot inherit the kingdom of God" - you continue to believe in the glory of the flesh. And this you do, "not according to Christ" (whom is God, whom is spirit), but "according to the basic principles of the world", just as we are warned not to.
  9. 1.The Rapture Theory

    I reveal all truth to you and you do not receive it. Then to make it simple for you, and show you one thing in the form of a question that cannot be denied, so that you might receive it as from yourself. Still you do not receive it and say that it is not enough. But your response is quite enough. In answering that very simple question which cannot be denied ("How do you reconcile what you have said and claim will happen in the world, with the biblical fact that "the world sees Me no more", said by Jesus?") your only answer is complete conjecture, showing that you do not know at all, but are more willing to speculate than to hear and believe the truth. That, indeed, is quite enough. And again, you use one scripture from God to argue against another scripture from God, proving that you have no understanding. It would have been better for you if you had told the truth and said you don't know.
  10. 1.The Rapture Theory

    Of course Jesus rose from the death - He also ascended into heaven. Yes, He did both. But they were two different acts. The resurrection was His victory over death, even in the flesh. But even the dead are raised up in the resurrection: "some to everlasting life, some to shame and everlasting contempt." But all do not enter the kingdom, certainly "flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God." "Where is His body" you ask? - We, who have received Him in [spirit] are His body - His church! Did His church rise with His spirit on the day of Pentecost? And since then, "each in his own order" when we too have breathed our last, "go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty", as we shall do "forevermore."
  11. 1.The Rapture Theory

    I explained that He did not enter the kingdom in the flesh, but in the spirit, just as God is spirit. This is not debatable. But, you have this all wrong as well. The flesh dies. But "God is the god of the living." Christ is that "life-giving spirit." "The flesh profits nothing." As for the Mount of Olives...Yes, indeed - but you have the timing all wrong. That was His swan song, His victory march! He has entered into the glory of the Father, whom is spirit.
  12. What is the "Secret Rapture"

    I don't subscribe to any "secret rapture" doctrine, but there certainly is something to the idea of Christ coming in secret. You see, the many quotes listed here that would indicate a public event, cannot be reconciled with "The world sees Me no more."
  13. Yeah, I think that Trump would do well to present his ideas to the NRA with a similar appeasement showing how the concession does not go against the 2nd amendment, but does address the youth issue, then the idea would have merit. Otherwise, he is looking at giving away the next election for going against the NRA.
  14. No Waiting! - That was then, this is now.

    Another way of explaining your idea of two baptisms, is revealed in the two "folds" referred to by Jesus. What happened with Israel crossing the Red Sea and then the Jordan, simply shows each fold coming through "the waters above" separately.
  15. It is an appeasement, and I don't like appeasements. It is a band aid, and what is need is surgery, and I don't mean gun control, I mean what is needed is social rehabilitation. That is the problem we are dealing with, and this is all just the symptoms. We need to learn how to walk and talk all over again. We have lost our way. But this is his (Trump's) chess move - I hope it works and doesn't backfire.
