  1. Some speculation, according to what i've been taught. I don't want to do this; i say let the speculators speculate, it will get them nothing but trouble, but no speculation in this: read see revelation 21:21: And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: . . . I don't think pearls are a bad thing.
  2. All of us have had to have the hard soil of our hearts and minds plowed so that the Seed of God can take root. It may not be pleasant but it is what it takes. Remember God says we all began as enemies of God.
  3. the U.S. has come in now to rescue a lot of these. i'm skeptical of this kind of help request but the best thing we can do is pray about it. i recognize mr. shoebat as knowledgable on these issues but in the article, he is being a prophet. claiming to be a prophet is serious business !

    The word 'olam'

    I'm confused as to why the original post stated that 'Olam had anything to do with hell. I was taught that there have been more than one 'Olam. Not to add more confusion to the subject, of course, haha. (no, seriously, we have a biblical passage that states 'from olam to olam'. let me find it. Okay, I'm going to type in a few excerpts from now until olam translated as "from everlasting even to everlasting" in 1 Chron 16:36, Psalm 41:13, Psalm 90:2, etc. , translated "from this time forth and forever" in psalm 125:2, isaiah 59:21, Micah 4:7, etc. .....The Prophets indicate the future 'olam is, like every 'olam in the past, a specific point in time. from The Voice of Elijah Newsletter, Volume 11, Number 3. The author continues: Anyone who wants to claim that 'olam doesn't refer to the past as well as the future will have to do some rather fancy semantic footwork to explain not only the meaning of the phrases "from 'olam" and "unitl olam" . . . . .. They will also have to explain why the author of the Book of Ecclesiastes plainly tells us there has already been more than one 'olam.: Is there anything of which one might say, "See this, it is new"? Already it has existed for ages (olam) which were before us. (Ecclesiastes 1:10)

    The I.S.I.S

    There is a very interesting booklet called 'The Antichrist' that can be ordered for free from voiceofelijah.org. This booklet describes a 10-nation ARAB group like you're talking about.

    My yoke.

    From what I've been taught, I understand 'yoke' to be a guide. Jesus guides us in the path of righteousness so we don't stray to the right or to the left.
  7. I think we need to watch for things like this as a warning and as a reminder that we must be very familiar with our scripture. To me, the phrase I copied and pasted below sounds nothing like the God of the Bible. It has the ring of words I've read from Muhammed or the Dahli Lama (spelling?). "Hello my children.This is Yahweh,the One True Lord. You have found creations secret,Now share it peacefully with the world."
  8. As you probably already are aware, anger stems from some kind of desire that you have that is being thwarted. I was taught that to rid oneself of anger, you've got to get at the root of the problem, which is your desires: for quiet, for respect, for peace, justice, whatever it is. take me, for example. i tend to become angry if i feel i'm not being treated fairly. but i must accept with thanks the circumstances God gives me every moment. remember: what right does the clay have to say to the potter . . . . . .
  9. Old Testament = God made a covenant with a people (basically a contract) detailing how they could go about becoming heirs of God's promise. New Testament= The inheritance is given when Jesus Christ fulfills the contract.
  10. This is an old post . . . but just in case you get back to it: I go for the old earth since I do not believe in 7 '24 hour' days. It wasn't until the 3rd day that we got the sun.
  11. I always remember where to find the response to questions like this because the phrase "Oh, you foolish Galatians" always sticks in my mind. 2 I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard? 3 Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort? 4 Have you suffered so much for nothing--if it really was for nothing? 5 Does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you because you observe the law, or because you believe what you heard? 6 Consider Abraham: "He believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness." Also, after a sect of the Pharisees began trying to have the gentile believers circumcised, Peter said this, as recorded in Acts 15: 10 "Now therefore why do you put God to the test by placing upon the neck of the disciples a yoke which neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear ? 11 "But we believe that we are saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they also are."
  12. I used to believe the 'recap answer' to explain the difference, but according to my Voice of Elijah newsletter April 2003, the Truth is: Chapter 2 - Dry land has already appeared, no vegetation has yet sprouted, God created the first Adam from the ground, God created vegetation, God created birds, God created animals, God created the woman "Eve". Chapter 1 - On the third day of Creation: Dry land appeared out of the water. Vegetation-both plants and trees-sprouted. On the fifth day of Creation: God created the fish. God created the birds. On the sixth day of Creation: God created the animals. God created "the man" is His image and likeness. Things like this happen when we read our scriptures very carefully. I won't explain how this is because I am not called as a teacher, but the teacher I have makes it very clear that one of these accounts is history and one is prophecy. And, of course, the New Testament has much to say about the 'first' and 'second' Adam.
  13. One of the newsletters I get from 'Voice of Elijah' has a lengthy article about Job. It states that the Book of Job is essentially a parable, to tell us that we should expect to be smelted, refined, and tested. 2 Timothy 3:12: And indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
  14. It's confusing alright, but try this: We are also a part of "the One". I am "in Christ" right now. Also, all other Christians are in the same body I am in. Getting stranger? I was also 'in Christ' when He died; therefore, I already died. Luckily I was also 'in Him' when He arose from the dead. It seems off topic, maybe, but it helps me to understand how 3 can be 1, since the many are also 1. Hope this helps.
  15. Most importantly, you must make absolutely sure that you are born again. I was taught that until you are sure that you have repented and had your apology accepted by God, there is nothing else that God wants to hear about from you.
