    Why yes, and lots of them! ;-D
  1. Can everyone get saved by faith?

    I believe anyone can be saved by faith, and faith alone- because to do anything else to be 'saved', would be to save ourselves- and to negate what Jesus did at the cross. What He did was all that needed to be done, period, as the 'Author and Finisher of our faith'.
  2. What on earth is going on with the weather???

    I've been in the midwest for a few years, and today it's 1 with a 'feels like' of -29, lol. We have some snow on the ground, it's just nasty out there- I'm originally from California, and I have to say...there are days (and this is one of them, lol) where I sooooo miss that warm weather, and 50-some-odd degree winters!
  3. Science and Prophecy Merge

    Maybe not permanently, but there are those who are seriously working on extending life, merging humans with A.I., it's some seriously strange business- these aren't 'kooks', either- they are highly educated and respected individuals- go to Forbes dot com and look up "meet these incredible women advancing a.i. research" - There are many, many legit scientists, etc. who are working hard with rDNA searching for ways to extend life beyond the normal, expected 80 years or so. With things like this moving ahead at a rapid pace, who can say what sort of side effects could result from it? I mean, we're talking about synthetic DNA that has been..created, and coded according to the 'creator's' specification being added to human DNA, where once in the body it replicates...who can say what sort of things could happen with something like this? It isn't so hard to believe that somehow, changes to normal human DNA could result in the ability of not being able to terminate the 'host' somehow- there is just so much that we don't know, and we with our tiny little minds believe that if we can't explain it, or make sense of it, somehow, that it can't be possible. I can't help but think that we have a 'host of witnesses' watching the coming's and going's of man, and tittering to themselves at our naiveté, lol. Uriah, let me add this: the reason I am posting all of this in your forum is because of how deeply you seem to be delving, discovering things- I'm absolutely no sensationalist, you won't catch me reading The National Enquirer in line at the supermarket and believing everything, just because it's the written word. I cringe at the thought of being titillated, I'm not looking to be 'shocked' or 'thrilled' with the latest in...well, tinfoil-hat'ism. I've just been watching, and reading, and researching, and comparing...and I will be the first to admit I'm no genius, but I'm certainly no slouch, either. And honestly, I'm seeing some 'writing on the wall'.
  4. About the writings of Enoch

    Just because I refuse to traipse back up through all of the posts here, lol...but someone mentioned that the book of Enoch was not as old as some thought, but according to the New World Encyclopedia, fragments from 1 Enoch were found among the Dead Sea Scrolls at Qumran...
  5. About the writings of Enoch

    When I was around 8 years old, there was a neighbor boy who lived close by that I went to school with. He also attended the Mormon church a block away with his family, as did a close friend of mine and her large family. I went with my friend a few times, although at that time I attended an Assemblies of God church with my mom, and did so for years. Im non denom. now. Anyhoo...one day this boy I mentioned earlier and I were talking about church, or something...as kids do, and I dont remember the conversation at all its been so long ago, but I remember him looking at me and yelling at me in a redhaired rage (he was a freckled ginger lol) as he said, "All of the other religions are wrong, so God made Mormonism!", and I mean he was livid and just fit to be tied. Decades later, that has stuck with me, I think just for the fact that there was no room for anything, just...nothing. He didnt have to give proof, he didnt have to give a reason or even make sense...but by George, he was just adament. I never forgot him or his reaction, and I remember years later thinking to myself that it was people like him who probably burned at the stake those who dared to disagree, lol. I sense a little of that in this forum, lol. Let me state where I stand, not that it matters, lol...I believe that scripture is God given. I have no clue what the books of Enoch and Jasher are, other than they can be used as commentary in order to get a clearer picture of things back then. Im no pagan, not into mysticism or anything else, im a Christian who believes in what Jesus did at the cross, period. Im not looking to the other books to change my mind or anything else, and honestly, I dont think anyone else in here is looking for that, either. We want to understand what is coming in these end times, what should we expect, what happened in the days of noah that will be repeated in the last days, etc. Knowing the enemy is imperative if youre going to fight. And the bible says we wrestle not against flesh and blood... And be wise and post long things like this using a comp and not a stupid cell like I did, hahaha And as I edit this yet again, this time I came and turned on my computer specifically to type a lot faster and not go blind from the tiny keyboard in the process, hahaha! Ok, I would like to expound just a little bit, here....I'm reminded of where Paul (I think it was Paul) was talking about how there were things that he could do that were not sin, but if it caused others to sin, he wouldn't do it...and how some things that weren't necessarily 'wrong' but felt wrong to some, then for those people it really was sin. So...in saying that, if there are those who are completely uncomfortable with the idea of reading the books of Jasher and Enoch, etc.....then they shouldn't read it- as a commentary and not seeing it as 'gospel truth' (so to speak), for those who read it after much prayerful consideration, and who don't 'preach another gospel', then...the thing is, I would never...ever...try to lead someone or sway them in a direction that they weren't comfortable with, God forbid. The truth is, we're all on the same side- and we all need to remember that
  6. About the writings of Enoch

    It really is some pretty scary reading, lol- I have to be honest, I don't feel like I am qualified to decide what would actually go 'in' to scripture that we have now, as scripture...I know that I don't know, lol- however...someone else in here said that it does fill in a lot of blanks that scripture doesn't expound on, such as...angelic interference- and for reasons such as these, I think that at the very least they are valuable as commentary~
  7. About the writings of Enoch

    I completely agree with this, I didn't feel that it was 'inspired' either, but more of a...commentary, etc.- thank you, and my shekel is in the mail
  8. About the writings of Enoch

    Just for the sake of curiosity..I know it isn't part of the Bible, but how do you know it was forged and that it is a different Enoch?
  9. Science and Prophecy Merge

    Revelation 9:1-6 "The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a start that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. And out of the smoke locusts came down on the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth. They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. They were not allowed to kill them but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes. During those days people will seek death but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them." From what I'm reading here, it states that the sting of these locust are horrific, but that they are not allowed to kill those who don't have the seal of God on their foreheads, but only to torture them for five months. It states that these people would seek death, but it would elude them. The Greek word for 'elude'(διαφεύγω) means the same thing as the English translation...to escape, evade- it would seem to me that if a person were seeking death, and in effect wanting to do away with themselves, they would manage to do so...if they had a mind to do that thing. Unless...death itself was evading them, and the ability to die was completely out of their reach. I don't think it has to do with 'wishing' they could die. I think it has to do with an actual, inability to die, because death..is eluding them. Literally.
  10. About the writings of Enoch

    I haven't read much from the books of Enoch and Jasher, although I think it definitely bears looking into- I know one of them goes into some detail about the fallen angels, or Watchers- and I have to admit, it shines an entirely brighter light on that particular subject matter, although it is a bit of a disturbing read! I need to read up on what, exactly, the Council of Laodicea was responsible for, as well as a lot of their reasoning behind the scriptures that were allowed in what we have today as the bible, and what were left out- although I think we would need to be....prayerful? Insofar as the attitude we read these particular books with, you know? I'm reminded of Rev. 22: 19,20 where it states about adding to or leaving out anything (from the book) and the curse that would fall on those who do...but I'm just not sure if it is speaking about that particular book only, or...? At the very least, both books (Jasher and Enoch, along with others I'm sure) would most definitely be enlightening as far as commentary and expounding in the subjects are concerned- of course, the biggest concern of all would be how what is said correlates with the bible and whether or not it 'preaches any other gospel', or denies, in any way, what we know to be true of Jesus, etc.... When Paul spoke about the resurrection of the dead, he asked (paraphrased, big time, lol) why people would pray for the dead if they didn't believe in the resurrection..or something along those lines- one gets the distinct impression that Paul does not 'pray for the dead' himself, but that he was, basically, asking them (again, heavy on the paraphrasing, haha) "you pray for the dead...why would you even bother if you don't believe there is going to be a resurrection in the first place?" - what I'm getting at, here, is that even though Jude quoted it in the bible, etc.- it's so hard to say if they saw these books as...commentary, divine scripture...or how much weight they actually carried. It is totally fascinating, though- my own thought on it would be that we need to approach it prayerfully asking the Lord for guidance.
  11. Science and Prophecy Merge

    From Strong's Concordance: xáragma – properly, an engraving (etching); (figuratively) a mark providing undeniable identification, like a symbol giving irrefutable connection between parties. Ok, I don't agree with you but that's no big deal- I'm thinking that we can make something 'look like' just about anything (the sticks tied together resembling a 'chip' under the skin), and as far as 'to prick, as with a thorn', that could also denote something sharp...like a needle, as in an injection- which, to my understanding, is the way that rDNA would be implanted. I keep thinking that sharing DNA would most definitely give "irrefutable connection between parties", in this case, mankind and the antichrist. Why would you think genetic scanning would need to be repeated, any more than scanning a chip? Something could be coded into the rDNA that could be scannable, don't you think? I guess the biggest issue I would have here, is this: everyone is expecting a chip..forehead...right hand. Don't you think just about everyone would be completely alarmed if 'big brother' were to come at people, insisting that they take a chip implant? I know, I'm arguing the point- well, not 'arguing' so much, as stating where I'm coming from. What about this: those who have the mark are basically looking for death, but it 'flees from them', and they are unable to die. Couldn't that be a result of genetic manipulation, something else being added into the genetic code that doesn't belong there? It just seems that the possibilities with this type of situation fit in to various things in the book of Revelation, that make no sense otherwise, but actually is plausible when looked at with the rDNA/A.I. scenario. Sorry, Uriah- I just feel like this is something that could be important, which is why I keep bringing it up, lol.
  12. Science and Prophecy Merge

    Everything you have posted is very interesting, Uriah- I guess I'm just a lot more curious and driven to know how the antichrist will integrate the mark- what it could be, will we recognize it when it happens, is it something we are/aren't expecting, etc.- I have to be honest- with as much detail and thought that you have given into the majority of your posts in this particular forum, I'm surprised that the whole possibility of A.I. or rDNA didn't pique your interest much considering the nefarious ways that it could be used in the future- even Elon Musk is disturbed by the possibilities, lol. Truly, no offense meant when I say that- I guess it just surprises me when a lot of people consider it to be a 'chip implant', or something right along those lines without looking deeper at it...people are pretty much against the very idea of a 'chip implant' for the very reason of the whole '666' business that we've all heard about our entire lives, even non-believers, I guess I find it surprising that if something new comes down the pike (such as the whole rDNA) business, it doesn't raise any alarms (like it does with me, lol)....or, not a whole lot of alarms at least, lol. Just another opinion-
  13. The Mark of the Beast

    Ok, have to throw my two cents in, lol- I think the Mark might very well be rDNA with 'questionable' DNA coding (as in satanic) added in. When it is given to the public, it 'attaches' itself to their own DNA, making them part of - in effect - the original DNA that they had given to them...meaning, satanic- I say this because I think there is a very real possibility that when it speaks of the 'abomination that causes desolation' by the antichrist sitting in the temple proclaiming himself to be god over everything that is God, it might be the fact that we, as humans, are that 'temple'. It would seem very similar to the way that when we accept Jesus, we are spiritually grafted (for want of a better word) to Him. This would be an interesting way for satan to mimic all that Jesus did, by using the code from his DNA (rDNA, or synthetic DNA) and basically 'marking' his own, those who belong to him. It would also account for the idea that those who take this mark would never be eligible for salvation, because they are basically not completely, 100% human anymore. Could be a stretch, but for those who are willing to really look into it closely, it could be a huge possibility that this might be the way it plays out. "As in the days of Noah", there was a reason for the Flood, to rid the land of something so evil...and to forever wipe out...'something'. What? It says that Noah and his family were found to be 'perfect in their generations'. Could the writer have been speaking about the fact that no 'strange flesh' had invaded Noah's bloodline? Like i said, for those that have a mind to it might bear looking into. I know it has sure piqued my interest, lol.
  14. Skywatch TV

    I think I just watched a documentary by Mr. Horn and Skywatch TV called Inhuman, regarding A.I. and what they are doing/wanting to do with genetic manipulation, etc.- I listened to a video by Douglas Hamp too, regarding the idea that perhaps the Mark has something to do with rDNA, etc.- fascinating bit of business, beyond frightening if it panned out that way in the future- hugely interesting simply because of the fact that changing DNA, etc. could possibly tie in with all of the other things in the book of Revelation-
