  1. The Lord bless you too brother.
  2. And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast a hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee. Matthew 17:24-27
  3. We had better be ready right now. Those souls have no promise of their next breath. We can't afford to wait around for some awakening to take place. You said in another thread that we could believe today, right now, and walk according to the new man. What are we waiting for? You said you got rid of your grave clothes. Why don't you believe me or Friend of the Lorde hasn't thrown away their grave clothes?
  4. Assurance of Heaven

    If you want to know what to expect when you die, your spirit will depart from your body. You will give up the ghost. Your body will return to the ground till Jesus returns, and at that time, your spirit and body will be reunited and you will have a glorified body like Jesus had after the resurrection. Your spirit will be with the Lord till then. Remember how Moses met with Jesus? His body was in the ground, as God buried him, but his spirit didn't sleep in the ground, just his body. Our God is a God of the living, not the dead.
  5. I think we will lose freedom to worship in our own way, and will be forced into a state controlled church, like what we have seen in communist countries. The true Christians won't go along and will have illegal prayer meetings at the risk of prison or death.
  6. I have a different view of the future than you do, but you have conducted yourself well in carrying on a civil conversation, and I appreciate that. I wish everyone was that respectful. I believe many are living as you described and have been all long, truly free from the bondage of sin. I expect there will come a massive deception, and a one world religion with a spirit of anti-Christ. I expect to see the true church suffer persecutions and have to go underground. I do think God is calling his people to come out from among the world and the lukewarm church, which is bringing about a separation of wheat and tares. I am witnessing it already.
  7. Thanks. I appreciate your willingness to answer questions.
  8. That is the millennial reign of Christ.
  9. Do you see an end of the Roman Catholic Church?
  10. Who do you see capable of leading such a movement?
  11. So you are not suggesting we will unite into a massive single united group. You believe the church will splinter off into home churches? You don't see a uniting of all Christian religions?
  12. What kind of thing is going to bring us all together? Alien invasion, demonic deception? If something like that occurs, it is to bring us under the control of the anti-Christ church.
  13. Clearly, we obey the laws unless they are telling us to break God's laws. As for taxes, render unto Caesar the things that belong to Caesar. Pay your taxes. Do you think the Roman government was righteous in how they spent all the tax dollars, yet Jesus paid his taxes.
  14. I have a thread about the spiritual tree in Romans where I explain how gentile Christians are adopted Jews and share in the inheritance with the believing natural branches, so Jew in the natural and gentile have access by faith to the New Covenant. You did say something I want to ask about. What happens to the 500 plus denominations?
  15. They are not imposters. There is a remnant of the natural branches who are saved, and many live in Israel. All the Jews are not cut off. All are not trying to save themselves following the law of Moses. Gentile believers are grafted into Israel with the Christian Jews. We didn't replace them.
