  1. I understand your concern sister.....but no one said our pilgrimage on earth would be without perils and pitfalls.....we are in a battle here. There is a danger of applying our carnal mind to things apart from the Spirit of God, and there is a danger of going beyond what He is saying in the word, as well as of falling short of it. We are not to try and "figure it out" with our carnal mind but seek and wait for understanding to come from the Spirit. And then we need to also test the spirits and test all things to make sure we are hearing from the HOLY Spirit and not another. Look for other witnesses in scripture, the whole counsel of God, and see if it harmonizes and fits with everything that is written.
  2. Eze 20:49 Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! they say of me, Doth he not speak parables? Hos 12:9-10 And I that am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt will yet make thee to dwell in tabernacles, as in the days of the solemn feast. I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets. Mat 13:3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; Mat 13:10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? Mat 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. Mat 13:34-35 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world. Jesus is the Word made flesh and He speaks to us in parables/similitudes and without a parable He does not speak………….receiving this understanding is a great key in the Holy Spirit to unlocking a lot of scripture. Jesus chided His disciples when they thought He was talking about temporal things and didn’t understand He was using similitudes to teach spiritual things.
  3. The article is only about numbers. Even the Catholic church can boast in numbers....they have millions of members and we know that church is full of idolatry, false doctrine, homosexuality and pedophilia. So numbers have nothing to do with the actual spiritual health of the church. We are in the falling away sadly, regardless of the numbers. Falling away has to do with falling away from sound doctrine. Jesus warned us regarding the last days about those who would come in His name. In HIS name. Jesus also said the broad way leads to destruction and many are on it, but narrow is the way that leads to life and few are on it. So the numbers are completely irrelevant to the spiritual condition of the church. God is not impressed by numbers. Apostate churches don't really care about anything but numbers, they don't care about who is in their pews, as long as they have people following them who mouth the party line and don't cause them too much trouble.
  4. Bless you brother. I hope it wasn't also blasphemous though. If it turned out to have been blasphemous you might need to apologize to the Lord for watching the movie to the end instead of walking out. Yes thankfully the Lord is on His throne and is longsuffering and slow to anger, as long as we aren't knowingly putting Him to the test. 1Co 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
  5. So now we are indebted to the world for giving us a "deeper appreciation of what Christ sacrificed". Jas 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God Its for things like this that the church has become so worldly. It's rare enough to find Christians who have any half-way realistic understanding of what Jesus was like......imagine thinking that there are unbelieving filmmakers who could possibly understand.....and that they have anything to teach the child of God about Him. Oh dear brother, this is seriously misguided and upside down.
  6. Maybe have a look at the book of Esther my friend, and see if you see the last days depicted there and a triumphant victorious church. (Even though suffering......since it is through much tribulation that we enter the kingdom of heaven.)
  7. I am tending to agree with the OP...up to now we have only received the earnest of the Holy Spirit, guaranteeing what is to come. And what are the birth pangs of the last days for if not to bring something to birth.
  8. ...talking about both man and devil who destroy the earth, I believe.
  9. It may be that there isn't really a big gap between the spiritual/miraculous and what we think of as the physical world, but might be more of an overlap... with heavenly/spiritual realities affecting the physical realm. Even when science has plausible explanations for 'natural' occurrences it doesn't mean God's hand is not in it.....everything we can see and touch is still a miracle....created and sustained by God, who set everything in motion and knows everything that will happen from the beginning. There are scientific explanations for the conception and development of a baby in the womb, yet the Lord still calls this process an act of His "creating", and He says that HE knit us together in our mother's wombs. So whether things happen 'naturally' or miraculously, I believe we can still regard it all as coming from the Lord.
  10. This agrees with Revelation 12: Rev 12:7-9 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Just think when the devil (and his angels) is fought against and cast down to the earth out of his place as prince of the power of the air.......it doesn't seem surprising at all if that will manifest in atmospheric and cosmic disturbances, and the earth reeling to and fro like a drunkard!
  11. Many churches have turned into little more than self help clinics unfortunately.......and in spite of this they make no progress in truly being healed, with everyone still gazing at their navels so to speak when you go back to visit years later. We won't get healed looking at ourselves (our navels) and heeding the philosophies of the world and men....we need to come to a place of looking to the Lord alone. He is our only Help and Healer and Deliverer.
  12. Amen......yes, I understand and was just advising everyone in general to keep away. Curiosity sometimes kills the cat, we all just shouldn't let our minds go down any path of thinking that isn't scriptural or we might find ourselves getting caught in the snare. Things can seem so reasonable to the logic of the carnal mind but be from the wrong Tree. There are ways that seemeth so right to man but lead to death. It's so sad when we see churches and ministries going astray.....the falling away is excruciating to watch.
  13. Don't even let your mind go down this road, sister, because it leads astray of God's word. Man and devil in their pride and arrogance are always trying to 'outdo' God instead of submitting to Him. They want to go their own way instead of His way...this is what rebellion is. Meanwhile everything we need for inner healing is in Christ and His word. Seek HIM for healing, cry out to Him and seek to obey His word and follow Him, and He promises healing. Not always an easy battle on our part, nevertheless His promises are yes and amen in Christ.
  14. Haven't heard of this, but I can say without any hesitation based on what you said here to just keep far away from it. There are only two types of people in God's eyes, either lost or saved (Gentile or Jew in the OT is a type and shadow of being lost or saved). Anything to do with new age and occult has demons attached to it.....these things are not innocent toys but are spiritually dangerous.
  15. I've heard the name of Jesus since I was a child so it feels awkward and artificial for me to say His name in a language that is foreign to me....though I do it sometimes for the sake of others. It tells us something of His lovely humble nature that He had such a common name....and it makes Him very approachable. He didn't give Himself any status or titles or offices, much less a special name that stood out. Where we see His "Name" in scripture is speaking of Who He is and His Authority, it's just not about His earthly name being special, it's about HIM being special. But I can't help noticing in general that people always want to add something to what God requires of us....as though it will make them more righteous. Self-righteousness does not please God. And anything of self and flesh will always lead to problems....just look at the fruit of it, the gross error that it leads to that others have pointed out. I find there are things that are just silly to argue about. Not saying in this case, but sometimes the only reason for bringing things like this up is for the sake of appearing righteous outwardly, when meanwhile I think we all have far more important work to do on the inside of our cup.
