  1. Only one way, Yeshua being 'The Way, The Truth & The Life'. The law is written on fleshy tables of our hearts. Our hearts are sprinkled by His blood. Blood baptism is daily, death to self. Everything is spiritual, & not a physical ritual, like the obvious ones being water baptism & communion, that are misinterpreted, & practised in the pagan/christian churches. Loving our neighbour, is preaching the truth, even though they want to kill you, spiritually. Love's definition is walking in the commandments of God, but more accurately, guarding the law in our hearts, even though we cannot always keep them, that comes with age, of dying to self daily, & being conformed to Christ. So, grace, truth & love altogether in one package, if God has chosen you as His elect, adopted son/daughter, for that is NOT our choice.
  2. God has set everyone in their place, believers to find more truth from His Word, & discern false gospel & all the myriad of opinions. God has set unbelievers to fill most churches, & seek popularity, prosperity (of money), fame & knowing their right. That accounts for most on this site it appears. 2 Thes 2v10-12 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
  3. As far as I am aware a sheep can NEVER become a goat, nor can a goat EVER become a sheep, both in the animal & human world. This is true for us, who are either unbelieving goats, or believing sheep, who follow Yeshua the shepherd. Most mentions of sheep in the gospels, are from the mouth of Yeshua, most eloquently put in Mat 25v32-33; 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. The bible is consistent in that God chooses our salvation, not us, hence also you cannot lose your salvation. You might stray from the flock, but God will discipline us to conform to Yeshua's likeness daily, as slowly we get rid of self. As God's elect have been predestined before the foundation of the world, it follows that the Holy Spirit, in the form of our inner man, is already in God's elect sheep, albeit almost undetectable, from our birth. This would also be true of being born again, as the Holy Spirit doesn't magically appear one day when a lot of people think they have decided they would choose God. God's elect are 2 witnesses, the inner man (Holy Spirit) & outer flesh, & we battle crucifying that flesh, all our lives, as we are overcome by the blood of the Lamb.
  4. I prefer Yeshua to Jesus, to separate the real savior, from the 'other Jesus' of 2Cor 11v4. Also as Jesus Christ is a worldly swear word, that is a further reason, as well as there are a lot of Hispanic people called Jesus too, & of course, 2000yrs ago He would have been called Yeshua or Iesous, as there are no j's in the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic.
  5. Obviously, I am talking about if they die after birth, for whatever reason, before they reach an age when they rebel & sin. I would say this must be between 2-4yrs, or depending on the child, maybe sooner. This alters with mental & physical issues too. The key verse is Rom 7v9 I was alive once without the law, but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died. This can only be as a baby, although equipped ready to sin when its time, if he/she dies before sin, then God will have taken & saved them. If God does not choose to save them, He will make make sure they are of an age, after they have sinned, then they would die at whatever age is set for them. I, myself, should have drowned, when I was 9yo, when a beach ball that we were playing with, went the other side of this pipeline, that went out to sea, & I volunteered to go & get it, not knowing the water was deep there, & I plunged underwater,(as I couldn't swim then). I was not able to be seen by my cousins, The tide was so far out, that our parents were at least 150yds away, & there was no-one nearby, As I started swallowing & coughing salt water. I then noticed a figure on the pipeline, coming out of nowhere, & dived in & rescued me. I couldn't even thank him, or look back, I just ran coughing, back to our parents, who hadn't seen what went on. Fast forward 40yrs, I realised God had began saving me, back then, finally knowing the Truth of His Word, after 25yrs of searching, through the JW's, Anglican, Baptist & Pentecostal churches, of how not to do it, to where I am now. So God will protect you, until He shows you Truth, but you might have to wait awhile! After all saved comes from sozo (greek) meaning to be taken from point A to point B, & be protected through a lifetime of being saved. Of course, God did choose those who are His, before the foundation of the world, as in Eph 1v4; just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world. A whole other debate could be had about aborted ones, & miscarriages, & whether God saves them to, as life starts at conception!
  6. Classic false gospel, perpetrated by Billy Graham, among many. You cannot be an unbelieving goat, & magically be transformed into a believing sheep, that would be impossible for the animal & human. I repeat Yeshua's words again in Jn 15v16 ' You did not choose Me, but I chose you ' You cannot get saved one day, & change God's mind, to one of acceptance, from rejection. Being saved is over a lifetime of being conformed to the likeness of Christ. So all who walked the aisle, & got saved, are worshipping the other Jesus, gospel & spirit of 2Cor 11v4 For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted—you may well put up with it! If God chooses you, or anyone, eventually you will come to know the truth of this, like God got me too!
  7. To go back to Paul's comments in Rom 7v15-20; 15 For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. 16 If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. 17 But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. 19 For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. 20 Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. This is a clear battle of the outer man (flesh,self), & the inner man (Holy Spirit), which only true believers, chosen by God, has. We all have choices, or you could say wants. There are 2 wants all of us have, what you want, & wants that are forced on you. These are all predetermined. Try not wanting, something you want! or vice-versa. We are all drawn to hang out, or fall for somebody, or do mad things, but nothing is freewill. You had no choice in your parents, or your birth, nor any choice being born again (anothen-from above). We all have struggles that Paul had. I would say what we want & choose comes from self (outer man), & what is forced want, comes from the inner man, that is not carnal, but spiritual, & is learned behaviour, over a lifetime.
  8. Firstly, it is defined from the greek 'anothen', meaning 'from above'. So we have nothing to do with it, as God chooses us. Jn 15v16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you". When did this happen? Eph 1v4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world. I don't remember being born, but I have a birth certificate, & my parents testimony. Similarly my heavenly father has my 2nd birth certificate, when I go into eternity, in a few years, maybe He will tell me when, but it will probably be outside of time, so not necessary. There was a time, when I was ignorant of the truth, that I thought I became born again in 1991, but thankfully pulled away from manmade churches.
  9. I did already say about this; There then followed 6 actual days of making & forming, what was created in v1, but the dust of the earth was marred with satan. Although God did say in v31 that all He had made was very good, it was, for what He had to work with, hence His sovereign plan of salvation, knowing it was a matter of time for Adam & Eve to sin, as He said in 1v17 'in the day you eat of it you shall surely die. It also follows that Eden was also not perfect, still made from the dust that was polluted, but God made sure He put the temptations there, where He knew they would fail, to then know good & evil. Of course, to our & their eyes Eden looked perfect. There is an implication for the view that God said it was 'very good', that Adam was made perfect, which couldn't have been, otherwise we wouldn't have needed a salvation plan, that God predestined before the world began. So do you agree that the dust was polluted? P.S What you said here; "We stripped our scriptures of most things supernatural, and now 'other stranger things' are taking its place." Hope you don't mean 'stranger things' on Netflix, although it would be interesting, having an upside down!
  10. I don't go along with coincidence, there is too much in the bible starting In Genesis, that confirms God's order of things, that leads into eternity. As a base scripture, for how God sees things, 2Pet 3v8 “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” Back to Genesis, the only verse where there was perfection was 1v1, creation of heavens & earth, which could have been millions of years ago, but with no life, as yet. Whatever span of years followed before v2, when satan & his angels rebelled & were thrown out of heaven, that caused the heavens & earth to be polluted, & as it says 'The earth became without form & void; & darkness was on the face of the deep...' There then followed 6 actual days of making & forming, what was created in v1, but the dust of the earth was marred with satan. Although God did say in v31 that all He had made was very good, it was, for what He had to work with, hence His sovereign plan of salvation, knowing it was a matter of time for Adam & Eve to sin, as He said in 1v17 'in the day you eat of it you shall surely die.' They were both alive once without sin, but had the glitch in them, to sin, as they were made from the corrupt dust. Paul said we all are like that in Rom 7v9 “For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.”( Meaning when we were babies ) The fact that God made everything in 6 days (6,000yrs), the 7th day rest is eternity. He said we had to work 6 days (6000yrs) for all mankind, so if, as a lot of you believe, there is another 1000yrs after, to give man another chance, maybe, does not make sense, as that would make 7000yrs & then rest, it does not compute. Remember Lazurus was in the tomb, & Yeshua waited 4 days (4000yrs from Adam-Yeshua) before his resurrection. Jn 11v17 “Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already. ” Acts 2v17 “And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh” Which has been the millennium ever since then 2 days (2000yrs) as 1000yrs in Rev 20 is chilia in greek, & is plural (at least 2000yrs). Adding the 4 days & the 2 days is mans' lot in this life, 6 days (6000yrs). As to the timing of the 6000yrs ending, it's thought that Adam started in 4004BC, & with all the differences of changes in calendars, we could be between 4-17yrs further in time, making us 2023-2036, before God's elect go with Christ into eternity, bearing in mind we still have the 7yr tribulation to come, Daniel's 70th week of years. Of course, we don't quite know when, bur there are more & more signs in the skies& all the earthquakes & volcanos etc, batten down the hatches, we are in for a rough ride!
  11. Be glad to, Let us define Jn 3v16, you will notice it does not say 'for God loved the world' but 'so loved'. The word so is houto in greek, an adverb meaning 'thus, in this way' did God love world-kosmon-orderly arrangement. It goes on whosoever-paso-pas by itself would be 'all', but paso is 'the all' meaning 'the believing all' (God's elect). They are the main words that indicate its not the whole world, otherwise these verses would have to be scrapped from the bible! Jn 15v19 "If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you." Jn 17v9 "I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours." Jn 17v11 "Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep[d] through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are." Jn 17v14 " I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world." Col 2v8 "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." James 4v4 "Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God." 1Jn 2v15 " Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him."
  12. God's love is not unconditional, as 1Jn 5v3 & 2Jn v6 says, “For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.” “And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.” We keep God's commandments, by preaching the gospel, no matter what reaction we get. Agape is conditional love. An example can be given on evil agape, with someone doing something for their mafia boss, if you do it, you can remain in the gang, if not, you are out, or dead!
  13. It seems you are going against Yeshua's own words in Jn 15v16 “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”
  14. It's not a holy day, it's a pagan holiday, dressed up to look christlike, hence, why the half catholic & half protestant translators, wanted to include it for their pagan christianity beliefs.
