  1. The Great Tribulation and the Great Deception

    Interesting blog. “And he who overcomes, and keeps my works unto the end, to him will I give authority over the nations: ‘He shall rule them with a rod of iron…’ – as I also have received from my Father.” The "Rod of Iron" is always a reference to judgment, condemnation, etc. The saints rule the wicked with a "rod of iron" during the 1000 years because they go over the books of record during that time and apportion out to the wicked - their portion of punishment due in the lake of fire event that happens at the end of the 1000 years.
  2. Is God responsible for Satan's actions?

    1. Moses and Elijah stand WITH Christ in Glory -- in Matthew 17 -- BEFORE the Cross. 2. The NEW Covenant is in the OLD Testament - Jeremiah 31:31-33 and is UNCHANGED in the NEW - see Hebrews 8:6-10 3. "The Gospel was preached to US just as it was to THEM also" HEbrews 4:1 4. The Giants of faith held up before NT saints as examples to be followed - are all from the OT - Hebrews 11. 4. "The Gospel was preached to Abraham" Gal 3:8 John 1:11-12 - Christ is not talking about evil angels in any part of scripture when he uses the term "sons of God" Indeed..
  3. Is God responsible for Satan's actions?

    True ... I did say that. Yes they are. Both are - but the Rephaim only come along after the flood - from a particular line in Noah's descendants. No they aren't becausee as Christ said in Matt 22 -- Angels have no such function at all ... not even among themselves... let alone with other species. Yes they were. Not true at all. Because of what the actual Bible says -- because Noah was found righteous... not because "Noah was found short" or any such thing as is often "imagined". Fortunately that corrupt text is not included in the actual Word of God. Isn't it great to have the Word of God as our source -- "instead"? True - I did say that That is nonsense. God is not saying "they could eat food but they don't" -- as if God had made them with the biology to eat food - then said "never eat". Jesus did not say in Matt 22 "they choose not to Marry" rather He said that they are "like the angels" not "they act like an angel". He does not make it a matter of choice - but rather their function is changed to be the function of the angels in that regard - similar to them.. There are not "baby angels" no "mommy and daddy angels" according to Matt 22. All the angels are called "The sons of God" because each of them (like Adam) were made directly by God. True ... I did say that. 1. Moses and Elijah stand WITH Christ in Glory -- in Matthew 17 -- BEFORE the Cross. 2. The NEW Covenant is in the OLD Testament - Jeremiah 31:31-33 and is UNCHANGED in the NEW - see Hebrews 8:6-10 3. "The Gospel was preached to US just as it was to THEM also" HEbrews 4:1 4. The Giants of faith held up before NT saints as examples to be followed - are all from the OT - Hebrews 11. 4. "The Gospel was preached to Abraham" Gal 3:8 John 1:11-12 - Christ is not talking about evil angels in any part of scripture when he uses the term "sons of God" All my statements were from the Holy Spirit - divine revelation. Some people on this thread are in fact guessing... I am not.
  4. Persecution

    2 Cor 5:10 -- "we must all stand before the judgment seat of Christ" 1 Peter 4: (17) For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? (18) And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? Dan 7:9-10, 22 22 until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom. Rev 14:7 7 saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.
  5. Defense of the Post-Trib / Pre-Wrath Position

    true we can be derailed by having the actual warning and heads-up ... like the Disciples when they wanted to exclude the children or the syrophoenecian woman. Still it was very handy to know enough to "get in the boat" and to know enough to "accept the Carpenter as being the Son of God"
  6. Defense of the Post-Trib / Pre-Wrath Position

    It is true that the amount of knowledge one has is useless if at the end they have no connection to Christ. But Christ gives us this information about the future "for a reason". For the people before the flood - everything depended on what they would do with the warnings God sent through Noah. Living on the other side of the planet from Noah while claiming to be "spirit filled" and "informed" would not get them anywhere, when the rain started to fall. For the people living in John the baptizer's day - simply ignoring John and being "comforted" by the fact that they have the right church, and the right Bible - would get them nowhere.
  7. LOSS OF SALVATION

    Fallen from grace, severed from Christ - Galatians 5:1-4 " 4 You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace " Forgiveness revoked: Matthew 18: 32 Then summoning him, his lord *said to him, ‘You wicked slave, I forgave you all that debt because you pleaded with me. 33 Should you not also have had mercy on your fellow slave, in the same way that I had mercy on you?’ 34 And his lord, moved with anger, handed him over to the torturers until he should repay all that was owed him. 35 My heavenly Father will also do the same to you, if each of you does not forgive his brother from your heart.” Disqualified from the Gospel : 1 Cor 9:23 Now this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I may be partaker of it with you. 24 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. 25 And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown. 26 Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air. 27 But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified. Stand by Faith yet fear being cut off from Christ: Romans 11:19 You will say then, “Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in.” 20 Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either. 22 Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off. 23 And they also, if they do not continue in unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again Do not be deceived into believing OSAS 1 Cor 6:7 Actually, then, it is already a defeat for you, that you have lawsuits with one another. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be defrauded? 8 On the contrary, you yourselves wrong and defraud. You do this even to your brethren. 9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified Preferences are "nice" and everyone has them... but I prefer actual scripture for doctrine. Finding a text that does not challenge OSAS is not the same as finding one that refutes it. The test of a given proposal is in the area of the evidence that refutes it. Hint - Lucifer did not become Satan "because he was stronger than God" Adam did not fall and need salvation "because he was stronger than God" The warnings in the Bible are not about "beware of being stronger than God because then you might lose your salvation"
  8. Adam

    There were giants before the flood and Adam was likely the tallest and strongest since he had actually eaten of the Tree of Life - and all other humans (besides Eve) had not. But nothing like 90 feet. More like 12-15 http://worldnewsdailyreport.com/5-meter-tall-human-skeleton-unearthed-in-australia/ A little better "evidence" than "Mohammed said" -- but not much since this is from satire internet source.

  10. Future sins of the believer.

    Christ is speaking to his own disciples .. 3 hours ago, BobRyan said: Forgiveness revoked: Matthew 18: 32 Then summoning him, his lord *said to him, ‘You wicked slave, I forgave you all that debt because you pleaded with me. 33 Should you not also have had mercy on your fellow slave, in the same way that I had mercy on you?’ 34 And his lord, moved with anger, handed him over to the torturers until he should repay all that was owed him. 35 My heavenly Father will also do the same to you, if each of you does not forgive his brother from your heart.” This statement is outside the parable 35 My heavenly Father will also do the same to you, if each of you does not forgive his brother from your heart.” This is irrefutable. Any other sidestepping is to claim that Christians need not heed the teaching of Christ.
  11. Daniel 9 is a 70 week -- 490 year timeline. 24 “Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place All Bible timelines are contiguous -- they cannot be hacked,chopped,diced with gaps of undefined time inserted into them. This is irrefutable. Nope. The 69th week brings us to 27 A.D. the Baptism of Christ In the midst of that 70th week the Messiah is cut off - crucified that is when He put an end to sacrifices and offerings according to Hebrews 10. At the end of the 70th week - Stephen is stoned and Paul is anointed for ministry to the Gentiles All Bible timelines are contiguous -- they cannot be hacked,chopped,diced with gaps of undefined time inserted into them. This is irrefutable.
  12. Daniel 9 states that it is a 70 week timeline not a 69 week timeline. All Bible timelines are contiguous -- they cannot be hacked,chopped,diced with gaps of undefined time inserted into them. This is irrefutable.
  13. LOSS OF SALVATION

    your own quote disproves your assertion. Paul is specifically talking about "the Gospel" and not credentialling, or some certifying body revoking his license to preach. And we all know it. He does not want to be disqualified from the Gospel after preaching the Gospel to others. Irrefutable.
  14. LOSS OF SALVATION

    Temporary - as we see in Romans 11 Stand by Faith yet fear being cut off from Christ: Romans 11:19 You will say then, “Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in.” 20 Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith.
