  1. Do you really believe that mans intellect can understand scripture better than the Holy Spirit? Why do you see my agreeing with another member as a personal attack to you? Did I quote anything you wrote? No, I just let another member know they are not alone in refraining from all the false teaching that goes on with the many different discussions of personal views when it comes to prophecy. The only attack I see so far is the quoted post above which you made to me.
  2. @Who me ... I agree. So many people add to and take away from Revelation without even knowing they are doing so when they place their personal interpretation of this prophecy in their own writings. This is the reason why I stay away from these discussions as much as possible. 2 Peter 1:20 tells us "knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation", which leads me to just read and study Revelation and allow the Holy Spirit to open my eyes to what scripture means. I admit that there are places where I do not have an understanding yet, but it will come one day. Let nobody tell you that they hold the only truth of a prophecy.
  3. Checking in to let everyone know that Randy's depression has weened. I informed him about this prayer request and he said he can feel it and wanted me to tell you all thanks. He does not have a computer, or he would tell you himself. God Bless!
  4. At least we are all PhD Bible Scholars! Who would of thought ... LOL
  5. I got a 93 ... missed some old testament questions ...
  6. Thank you all for stepping up. I know there are also others who pray but do not post about it, so thank you also. I will let people know of his progress as we all know that leaving the world behind is hard enough for a normally healthy person, much harder when other issues are road blocks. ************* Just got off the phone with Randy. He informed me that today has been one of his best days in a long time and sounded up beat. He does not know there is a prayer request for him so it's real. All I said is that God answers prayers and he wholeheartedly agreed.
  7. Randy is a life long friend whom I grew up with. Randy just accepted Jesus a couple of months ago but has a hard time letting go of his past. He has been disabled for many years, rods and screws holding his back together. He had a stroke a few years back, and is on a regiment of medications, some for pain, others for depression, and more for his blood pressure etc. He has a very hard time focusing and his mind is stuck in high gear which hinders any sleep he tries to get. Because of how he lived his life, he has lost contact with his kids. His family has a hard time dealing with his mood swings and for the most part, have abandoned him. I have been trying to help him with talks about God and how He will help him if he would just allow His Spirit to work in his life. Needless to say, for someone who can't remember to take his meds or care for himself, he doesn't see God close. On top of it all, his past comes back to haunt him many times a day and he ends up festering in his despair. Please, if you feel led, pray for Randy so that he will surrender his life to God and allow His Spirit to change his heart.
  8. Let's not hi-jack another thread with the flat earth / global earth debate ...
  9. Revelation 21:16 The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal. Scripture tells us the city is laid out like a square, not a pyramid, where it's length, breadth and height are the same.
  10. OK, now I understand, but still, how were they physically made so there was so much space on the inside with no visible markings of any sort of injection? Just made me wonder, that's all.
  11. We can see the signs of Matthew 24 beginning, but Jesus tells us that this generation will not pass until all these things take place, using the fig tree as an example (Matthew 24:32-35), including the coming of the Son of Man. As for the " miracles and wonders", be careful and test all things, remembering in verse 24 that "false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect."
  12. Was that question to me? If so, I can't follow how you can liken the Holy Spirit to the air bubble inside of a big ball gum.
  13. For some reason, your post above won't split, so I will answer the best I can. So, you do not believe that once you die your spirit returns to God while we wait for a resurrected body? Do you then believe in soul sleep? Where do you read that those that come out of the great tribulation are any different than anyone else when it comes to being with the Lord, besides what they will be doing? You see, I do believe the dead in Christ will raise first, then those who are alive and remain will be caught up. What I don't see is any difference in the faith, just the reason for dying, so in order to believe those who came out of the Great Tribulation are different holds no weight to me. However, they will be the ones who will reign with the Lord for one thousand years as spoken in Revelation 20:4-6. Are you suggesting that the dead in Christ will not raise until after the thousand year reign? Are you also suggesting that believers will not live again until after the thousand year reign and take part int eh great white throne judgment? I ask because all you are doing is putting a verse here and a verse there. For me, I believe the time we are on earth, before being caught up, we will be protected from anything the world goes through, as you do. You may be surprised at how much we do have in common when it comes to eschatology, while the major difference is that you do not believe those who die spirits go to be with the Lord waiting for their resurrected bodies, waiting in spirit form. You think they just lay in the grave in the NOW, as you put it. I can't see it that way as those who are spoken of in heaven as being under the alter are real and I cannot place the last trumpet calling us to be caught up to be with the Lord at the end of the thousand year reign. Then again, as I have said elsewhere, all we are doing is talking about our theories derived from prophecy. We will not know the truth until it happens.
  14. I always wondered how they made them hollow ...
