    I really enjoy discussing the Bible. There is so much to learn and so much to share.

    We can know the Day and Hour of His Return

    What do you do with the following passage? Matthew 24:36-39 But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

    666 revealed

    If you Google Ambassadors of Christ you will find their site. Like any other group, they preach what they believe. When reading their site, have your bible at hand and check what they claim against scripture.

    666 revealed

    You will find that most everyone who believes in the bible has some things right. What I do not believe in is Preterism, which claims most (partial) or all (full) prophecies have been fulfilled by AD 70. Acts 17:11 These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.

    666 revealed

    AoC (Ambassadors of Christ) has some very questionable doctrine. Remember to be like the Bereans. Nero rising from the abyss is one that is very questionable.

    Would you lie?

    In all honesty Zoltan777, nobody knows if they will lie in a certain situation until they are faced with the challenge. Have I lied in the past, yes, due to some sort of fear. Will I lie in the future? I hope not, but I can not say one way or another. I'm not sure where this thread is going or why it was created, but to me, you seem to be asking if you are normal by asking if others would do as you did if faced with the same situation. To this, I would say I am more on the side of telling the truth as accidents happen.

    Question about angels

    Ponder this, if you will. Angles have been in the presence of God all their lives, knowing from their creation God is God. Those who rebelled against God did so for their own prideful, selfish reasons, not because they were ignorant. We, however, have not walked with God daily nor have we known Him from our creation, but through His work in us, came to desire to know Him and have a relationship with Him, which is why He sent His Son to bear the weight of our sins, which separated us from God for sin cannot reside with Him.

    Homelessness

    Homelessness has many faces. Some are addicts of some sort, some abused spouses, some are young adults who either chose to leave a bad situation at home or kicked out of their homes for some reason, some are by choice, some are priced out of housing - having jobs but not making enough to pay for rent and all other expenses, some are homeless due to an illness where they lost their job, some ex-military with PTSD, some have mental health issues ... many different faces. I have known many who have become homeless due to various reasons. I use to walk the woods in my area from one homeless camp to another as part of a job I once had, trying to ensure they were OK if they do not want to come in for help. They have always been with us and will always be with us. Someone has to be at the bottom of society. All one can do is show them the love that God shows us. Until we were saved, in a sense we were truly homeless. Now, we have an eternal home. This door is open to all who will choose to come in out of the world. The harvest is plenty but the workers are few.

    Preparing the Spirit, Heaven and Hell

    I stop by from time to time to see what is being discussed. Most of what is talked about I have already commented on, so I let others voice their thoughts.

    About Fasting

    Isaiah 58 gives us the reasons why we should fast.

    What is the "Secret Rapture"

    This is surely a difficult topic. Reading the opposing views is like trying to get a drink of water from a wide open fire hydrant. I have been told by both pre-tribulation and pre wrath folks why the last trump cannot be the seventh trumpet. I simply cannot see why not, but I am trying. I like to compare 1Corinthians 15:51&52 "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed" to Revelation 10:7 "But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets." Notice how well these two verses compliment each other. Paul shows us a mystery, which is to occur at the last trump and John finishes the mystery at the last trump. There are some who will consider your words, but not many. You will find that most people are stern in their doctrine and would much rather debate then discuss, which is why I stay out of such discussions. They are here to teach and not discuss.

    Tips for Better Forum Communication

    This one is about replying since there is a lot of practical advice about reading other posts. If done correctly, this should resolve how clarity in what you say will not be an issue. Take time to respond, don't just shoot from the hip. When you read a post that you are moved to respond to, take time to understand what the person is saying and then begin your response. After you feel you are completed your response, step back for a minute or two and return to your post to reread it, but this time, learn to read it as if you are reading it for the very first time with no preconceived idea of what the response is about. Learning how to do this will allow you to put yourself in the readers seat so you can actually see what the words are saying and not what you meant them to say. IF what the words actually say is not what you want to say, edit your response until it is clear and to the point you want to make. A few extra minutes will save hours of grief and misunderstandings. Too many times I have seen people just throw out a response and get upset when people take away from the post something different then what the poster thought they were saying and the fight begins.

    Your thorn in the flesh...

    My thorn? It wold be the memories of who I once was, the nightmares these memories create. I have peace in Him, but my past cannot be forgotten to ensure I do not repeat it.

    Is it a good idea to read books like The Message

    I use to go to a certain church in my area. It went from using the ESV to The Message. I confronted the lead pastor at that time and he said it is OK to use the message. I left the church. Not long afterward, the church split and the pastor was replaced. The Message is not Gods word and divides the body. Stay away from it.

    Worthy has changed a lot in ten years ...

    That's what I mean. If you have access to the Ministry Forum, you must be a Watchman or some part of ministry. If the Watchmen don't know who each other are, how can a new member reach out to them for help?
