  1. Great minds think alike. Love, peace and joy
  2. There are several good possibilities: The Shekiniah glory of God, Jesus the Light of the world. My choice is 2 Cor 4:4 - in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving that they may not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ who is the image of God. Of course should never limit God o one correct interpretation. love, peace and joy
  3. Jesus ;love me this I know, for the Bible tells me so. Jesus is the Alpha an Omega, this I know, for the Bible tells me so. However those titles go much deeper than we see on the surface. As you know or should know, Alpha and Omega are the first and last letters in the Greek alphabet. When we see opposites contrasted it is an idiom meaning everything in between also. This one is like our idiom everything between A and Z. The first word in the Bible is not "in", it is "Beginning" and you know the last word in the Bible is "amen." In Revelation 3:14 Jesus is called the Beginning and the Amen. So the idiom is telling us that Jesus is the beginning of the Bible and the end of the Bible and everything in between. IMO this reinforces 2 Tim 3:16 --ALL Scripture is inspired by God... Also, this is what Jesus told the men on the road to Emmaus. Lk 24:27 - And beginning with Moses and with all he prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in ALL the Scriptures. Lk 24:44 - Now He said o them, "these are My words which I spoke o you while I was with you, that ALL hings which are written about Me in the Law of Moses the prophets and the Psalms(the 3 basic division of the OT) must be fulfilled. Incidentally Emmaus means " in honest longing." WE should all get on the road to Emmaus every day and hope Jesus meets us there and explains the Scriptures to us. Love, peace and joy
  4. I just read your link, but I did not see anything that made me think of dying and being resurrected, but maybe I missed it. I found the phrase in Psa 84:11, the Lord God is a sun and a shield interesting. I understand God being ouroshiel, but I am going to have to do some study on Him being a sun. Love peace and joy
  5. It would be nice if you gave some Scripture to support that the people of that time believed they would die and rise again. and that they did not worship the sun(I am not sure they did. I believe some cultures of that time did, and I think it is possible thy did as well).
  6. I know I will probably receive some flack over this, but the KJ is not the bet translation of many verses. The NASB translates this verse as; He will again have compassion on us; He will tread our iniquities under foot. Yes He will cast all of our sins into the depths of the sea. Notices "subdue" in not in this translation. To "subdue" means to conquer and bring into subjection. To overpower by superior force. Overcome. We never overcome sin in this life, Romans 7 makes this perfectly clear. That is a wonderful verse because it reinforces at least 3 more verses that assures God forgive all o our sins, nos matter how horrible they are. Isa 38:17b - ...For Thou have cast all my sins behind Thy back---God sees them no more. Isa 43:25 - I, even I, am the One who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake; and I will not remember your sins. Jer 31:34b - ...I will forgive their iniquities and heir sins I will remember no more. All we have o do, as you know, is confess out sins, and immediately fellowship with our God is restored(I Jn 1:7).
  7. I basically agree with you but we should always be ready to refute false accusations ab out God, holy, inspired and inerrant word. love, peace and joy
  8. If the class isn't full. count me in. Peace and joy
  9. Yes but not for salvation or not to maintain our salvation. We have been born again not of perishable seed, but imperishable(I Pet 1:23). If you understand imperishable, you will know once we are saved, we are always saved.
  10. There may or may not be such a person, but there may be some who know and understand some of the prophecies. Have you ever read a verse many times, then one day you read it and you understand it? God doesn't give all knowledge at one time, so we will keep studying if we are really interested in knowing His truths. If we keep studying, God will keep giving us understanding, but not all at one time. Another thing we need to to have God reveal truth to us is to pray for understanding. Then study, then pray some more. Love, Peace and joy
  11. I can and will post some verses that indicate when it come to choosing God, God does the choosing. What cause the differences of opinion is that the Bible teaches both. This is called an "antimony," 2 truths that seem to be contradictory but are not, and you can't play one against the other without destroying both.. When you were born did you start living o dying? When Jesus was resurrected was He coming or going to heaven? To the apostles he was going. to God He was coming. When were you saved Before the foundation of the world. How could you choose? Phil 1:6 - Since God began the good work in us, how did we choose? Jn 6:37a. If God gives us to Jesus, how did we choose? There are 3 terms that in life where only one person does the choosing. "elect." In an election, the person running for office doe not do he choosing. "adopted. The adopted child does not do the choosing. "Predestined". This indicates Christians were chosen before they were born. Rom 9"16 - It does not depend on man, but on God. My favorite one is the being born again. God use this analogy that we completely understand to teach us that just as we played no part in our natural and we played no part in our spiritual birth. This analogy teaches us another important spiritual truth---eternal security. Just as we can't be unborn physically, we can't be unborn spiritually. Love, peace and joy
  12. But the name Jesus literally means "Jehovah is salvation; Jehovah, my salvation. Love, peach and joy
