  1. Jerusalem

    Yes and highly recommend going if you ever get the chance. Unfortunately I was working at the time so didn't get to visit all those wonderful Biblical places like the sea of Galilee, Mount of Olives/Gethsemane et al. However, I did get to spend the day in the old city visiting the western wall and joining some tours that take you beneath the surface. You can actually follow the western wall below the surface and via a tunnel with a guide who provides running commentary, its an amazing tour! Also visited the church of the Holy Sepulchre where its alleged our Lord was crucified and His tomb is located. The location is a bit contentious, some say the garden tomb and crucifixion actually took place outside the old city walls at skull hill, I intend to visit that location next trip. The people are amazing and love sharing the history of the place with you. Spent some time with IDF soldiers as well along the border of Gaza, just young soldiers who love their country and are defending it with smiles on their faces and joy in their hearts. Have every intention of going back some day to do the rest of the country, cant wait.
  2. What will the mark of the beast look like?

    It doesn't. The main passage in the Bible that mentions the “mark of the beast” is Revelation 13:15-18. Other references can be found in Revelation 14:9, 11, 15:2, 16:2, 19:20, and 20:4.
  3. What will the mark of the beast look like?

    Deceived and coerced yes. When one knows the truth and refuses to obey it, he is subject to any lie, any deception, any untruth that man can conjure up.
  4. What will the mark of the beast look like?

    It would appear that taking the mark of the beast will be a blasphemous act of willful defiance against God. Christ does not save those who do not want to be saved, nor does He save those who reject Him. Receiving the mark of the beast is essentially worshipping Satan. Those who take the mark have made the choice to serve Satan rather than obey God and receive Christ as Savior. When people make that decision during the tribulation, God will grant their request to be eternally separated from Him.
  5. What will the mark of the beast look like?

    Understand what your saying brother, however both verses refer specifically to the MoB. I lean to a literal interpretation and I believe what is written is black and white for all to see.
  6. What will the mark of the beast look like?

    I believe it is. Revelation 14:9 And a third angel followed them, calling in loud a voice, “If anyone worships the beast and its image, and receives its mark on his forehead or hand, 10he too will drink the wine of God’s anger, poured undiluted into the cup of His wrath. And he will be tormented in fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb.… Revelation 20:4 Then I saw the thrones, and those seated on them had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image, and had not received its mark on their foreheads or hands. And they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
  7. What will the mark of the beast look like?

    Indeed, something that is perhaps once altered cannot be re-altered or reversed, hence after receiving the mark there can be no salvation?
  8. Could this or something similar be a potential candidate? AI implants will allow us to control our homes with our thoughts within 20 years, government report claims Sarah Knapton, Science Inventor 15 October 2017 • 12:01am Artificially intelligent nano-machines will be injected into humans within 20 years to repair and enhance muscles, cells and bone, a senior inventor at IBM has forecast. John McNamara, who works at IBM Hursley Innovation Centre, in Hampshire, submitted evidence to the House of Lords Artificial Intelligence Committee, which is considering the economic, ethical and social implications of AI. Mr McNamara said that within just two decades, technology may have advanced so much that humans and machines are effectively ‘melded’ together, allowing for huge leaps forward in human consciousness and cognition. “We may see AI nano-machines being injected into our bodies,” he told Peers. “These will provide huge medical benefits, such as being able to repair damage to cells, muscles and bones – perhaps even augment them. “Beyond this, utilising technology which is already being explored today we see the creation of technology that can meld the biological with the technological, and so be able to enhance human cognitive capability directly, potentially offering greatly improved mental, as well as being able to utilise vast quantities of computing power to augment our own thought processes. “ Using this technology, embedded in ourselves and in our surroundings, we will begin to be able to control our environment with thought and gestures alone.” Scientists at companies including Microscoft are already developing a computer made from DNA which could live inside cells and look for faults in bodily networks, like cancer. If it spotted cancerous chances it would reboot the system and clear out the diseased cells. Mr McNamara also predicted ‘Political Avatars’ which will scour all available data from news sites and government debates to provide people with a recommendation on who to vote for and why, based on their world view.

  9. False sense of salvation

    False sense of salvation? Here's your answer: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Romans 10:9
  10. Christian Persecution Hits All-Time High Worldwide: Report By Anugrah Kumar , Christian Post Contributor | Oct 14, 2017 9:05 AM The persecution of Christians is now "worse than at any time in history," according to a report by the Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need, which states that not only are Christians more persecuted than any other faith group, they are also experiencing the worst forms of persecution. Prominent religious freedom advocate and evangelical figure Johnnie Moore earlier this month released a new book highlighting word-for-word testimonies of Christians worldwide who have endured severe persecution and know what it truly means to be willing to die for Christ. http://www.christianpost.com/news/christian-persecution-all-time-high-worldwide-report-202955/
  11. I intend to. Understood and Its something I thought about, just thought perhaps you may have had this issue arise in the states already. Thanks for your reply anyway Kwik, much appreciated and God Bless!
  12. MOSCOW (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump has “lit the wick of war” with North Korea and his country will be made to pay with “a hail of fire”, a Russian news agency quoted North Korea’s foreign minister as saying on Wednesday. Tensions between North Korea and the United States have risen in recent weeks over Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons and missile programs. North Korea has test-fired several missiles and conducted what it said was a test explosion of a hydrogen bomb as it advances toward its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the U.S. mainland. Speaking to Russia’s state-run TASS news agency, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said his country’s nuclear program guaranteed peace and safety in the region and would not be a matter of discussion. “With his bellicose and insane statement at the United Nations, Trump, you can say, has lit the wick of a war against us,” TASS quoted Ri as saying. “We need to settle the final score, only with a hail of fire, not words.” Ri has previously called Trump “President Evil” and his comments are likely to fuel an escalating war of words between the U.S. President and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. “We have almost reached the last point on the journey toward our final goal - to achieve a real balance of power with the United States,” he said. “Our principal position is that we will never agree to any talks in which our nuclear weapons will be the subject of negotiations.” http://www.reuters.com/article/us-n...wick-of-war-russias-tass-agency-idUSKBN1CG28W http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/10/11/north-korea-says-trump-lit-wick-war-vows-hail-fire.html
  13. I have a question to a problem that is on the horizon. In Australia, the votes for "yes" or "no" to same sex marriage are in, 10 millions votes in total were cast. The result is pending but early polls show a yes vote to be the likely winner. I have 4 young girls at home who I've taught that marriage is only between one male and one female, I've taught them much from scripture, and reiterated that the Bible is God's word and is the whole truth, anything that is in direct conflict with the God's word is wrong. This is how I have raised my children, with truth and love. When the yes vote succeeds and legislation is written and eventually becomes law, when schools begin to educate my children that marriage between same sex couples is normal, when two male children act out school plays on stage as a couple, when my children begin to question me regarding the issue and I tell them their teachers are wrong, will I be liable and potentially charged for discrimination, bigotry etc? My girls are strong willed, they know what is right and what is wrong, they will without doubt raise their hand in class and politely inform the teacher that same sex relationships are wrong. I'm anticipating a future call from the school, and a direct confrontation with the department of education when the time comes.
  14. Allah the Moon god of Arabia.

    I'd be more focused on the name Jesus Christ, this is the One and Only name that saves. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6
  15. Trusting Enemies?

    Unsure if this was the right section to post this article, please move if not. Trusting Enemies? by Bill Perkins “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;” Is. 5:20 The United States has enemies who wish to take us down. It’s easy to see our sworn enemies outside our borders, like North Korea and Iran, and take appropriate defensive action. But it’s harder to see our enemies our borders. Yet they exist and are actually more dangerous if not acknowledged. In the 1930s during the Great Depression, the Communist Party in America gained a foothold. They continued to grow until they reached 85,000 members by the early 1950s. In the spring of 1954, Senator Joseph McCarthy held hearings on unAmerican activities exposing the Communist threat. These hearings were broadcast live on television and shocked America. Due to what was learned in the hearings, President Eisenhower expanded his loyalty-security program through which he identified and fired hundreds of federal workers who had infiltrated our government. Congress responded by passing a law that was designed to outlaw the American Communist Party. Despite revisionist history that has dubbed McCarthy as being on a witch hunt or causing an unnecessary “red scare,” the truth is Communism was a growing threat from within our borders, and McCarthy exposed it for what it was. Growth of Communism was shut off and the Communists had to find another way to reach their goal of defeating America. In 1958, W. Cleon Skousen, an ex-FBI agent, wrote a book entitled The Naked Communist. Having seen what was going on in America from the inside, he wrote brazenly about what the Communists were up to. In the book he soberly lists 45 goals the Communists wanted to achieve in order to take over America. This list was read into the Congressional Record in 1963. Reading the entire list will make you want to cry, so I’m listing only five zingers: 17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks. 41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents. 11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. 21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures. 26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.” It would be difficult to argue they’ve not achieved these goals. Russian Communist Vladimir Lenin famously said, “Give me just one generation of youth and I’ll transform the whole world.” Cont... https://compass.org/trusting-enemies/
