    There are some things shouted where no one hears, and barely whispered where there are ears.
  1. Adam Montana Weekly 18 October 2017

    Thank you Adam for another update on this long ride of updates which sometimes are no update except to update us that this weeks update is that there is really nothing to update... But moving forward, even an inch at a time is better than no movement at all, or worse...reverse.
  2. I get a good feeling about all this. Iraq is going to flex their new found muscle with the backing of the US, take control of Kuwait, put the leaders they want in, and at that point, show good faith, pass the HCL, (giving Kuwait their fair share), and then RV. The only thing I obviously am not sure of, is the timing of it. Abadi is sending in the troops as I type. They are taking over the airports and borders, which are important to Iraq, especially the Turkey border. Kuwait may have just overplayed their hand, and are very quickly going to be brought back in line by Iraq and the world powers that have a stake in this whole thing. For me this is not a bad thing. It is a necessary part of cleaning the house before you paint and get new furniture. (RV) Barzani has to go and his funds along with his family's funds and everyone else who embezzled the money from their own people must be frozen and repatriated back to Kuwait. And Barzani and all those with him must be tried and whatever they do to the guilty over there. I do not believe this is just smoke and mirrors and magically the HCL will be passed tomorrow and the RV occur by the weekend. I'm thinking next year now for the RV.

    Thanks Adam for the update...and thank you GOD we got our power back tonight!!! We survived Irma here in Miami although I am still cutting trees and limbs and branches but nothing hit our house...Thank you Lord, God is Good!!! Now let's get the RV started!!!
  4. After a year of investigation and a continued Democrat laden Special Counsel they still have come up with.....you guessed it....NOTHING! Talk about extreme vetting. Trump has been the most extremely vetted citizen in the history of the US, not to mention President. And they still have NOTHING! NOTHING! Imagine how hard they are digging. Imagine how many angles they are investigating and how many people they are dragging through the mud just to bring Trump down. The best investigative minds money can buy on the Left and still NOTHING!!!
  5. Hi Just Checking.... I appreciate you sharing. The act of giving from the heart with no expectation of a return or being paid back is a Godly attribute that comes from a relationship with Jesus. As far as God's grace, someone once explained the difference between's God's grace and His mercy. His mercy is not getting what we deserve. (hell) His grace is getting what we don't deserve. (Heaven). God always wants you to be yourself, while He works His plan out for you, which is "being conformed to the image of Christ". That will make you the best you, you can be. Blessings!
  6. That's fine, but there is so much more to life than meets the eye. And when, for example, a CAT 5 hurricane is bearing down on you, a relationship with Jesus gives you the peace that passes all understanding. Which is what I am experiencing right now, living in Miami. Praying for friends and family to make it through safely, and at the same time, battening down the hatches while dealing with the craziness that comes along with all of this. General joy and emotional intelligence can only take you so far. But leaning on HOLY SPIRIT, that's a whole different level of joy, peace, and happiness especially in the midst of something like Irma.
  7. Hi Gulab. For me, I never knew what year, only that I heard August. I thought because it was Jubilee and all the different signs this year was ripe for the RV. Now I look towards next August.Or maybe it has changed and it isn't August anymore but it is Sept. But I have not been given an explanation. If it happens next August, then I know it just wasnt time. At this point, I can only hope it is no longer August and we are close. I started this thread because, like you, I wanted to hear if anyone else had any insight. And I have really enjoyed the back and forth, the hopefulness, the openness to discuss spiritual things in regards to not only the RV but our own lives. Good stuff. In the end, I do believe this is going to happen and when it does, oh man, what a life changer it is going to be.
  8. I only know from a personal and experiential perspective that I live with a power outside myself that I rely on daily. I pray in tongues daily and see the results of it in ways that I would not if I did not speak in tongues. Things I would have no idea to pray for or about by praying in tongues I see answers to situations that I didn't before I began praying daily in tongues. On the jobs that I do, I hear HOLY SPIRIT's voice after I pray that points me to exactly the solution to the problem I am called out to solve, in many cases not knowing anything about the situation and at times following behind someone else's work having never been there before. And that is just work. Have you ever misplaced something or lost something, searched everywhere and couldn't find it? Well the first thing I do is ask HOLY SPIRIT to tell me where to look, then rather than run around looking, I sit down and wait for HIM to tell me. HE does, and I go right where HE tells me and I find the item. But more than that, I have worked with other techs who have lost or misplaced their tools and they have searched and searched. One example, was the time the guy I was working with misplaced his wire cutters and screwdriver in this 5 story building we were running cables in. When I found out he had been looking everywhere for them, I prayed in tongues, and HOLY SPIRIT told me, "Go to the third floor, the 2nd closet, and look under the top box, in the second box below the shelf behind the door." I went right to where HE told me and there were the guys tools. When I told him where I found them, he said they must have fallen out of his tool pouch when he was on the ladder and he never knew it because they were in a box that had nothing to do with what he was doing. And I have so many life experiences like that, that would absolutely, if someone were to follow me around with a video camera people would think I was psychic or something. But I know it is HOLY SPIRIT my helper and comforter who leads me daily because I give my tongue over to him daily and HE prays through me about things I wouldn't even know to pray for, but HE knows, and the answers flow as if I knew what was going to happen. I know that I know the TRUTHS HOLY SPIRIT has taught me in GOD's Word, the understandings I have in my studies, and the wisdom HE has given me are right, and are real to the point that when I apply those truths in my daily life it reinforces for me the things that I have learned are true. Again, I live with a power that I would never have if my relationship with Father God, JESUS my LORD and SAVIOUR, and HOLY SPIRIT wasn't what it is. Whether it be for healing for someone, or pray into someone's situation and receive the answer and then boldly tell them this is what the LORD is showing me. My brother texted me last week and said "We found a condo on the beach and one on the intercoastal. Both the same price, but the one on the intercoastal is larger, but we really want the one on the beach. It's on the 14th floor and has incredible views. We just sent the app in so pray it goes thru with no issues on the beach one. Either one would be awesome. But the beach one would be a dream come true." As he was telling me I was praying in tongues and heard HOLY SPIRIT tell me, "Tell him he is going to get his dream condo on the beach." When he finished texting me about it . I simply texted him back saying, "Amen. You're going to get it." I told him HOLY SPIRIT told me so. That was August 31st at 6:46pm. On Sept. 1st at 3:35 pm he texted me "We got the beach apartment." So my daily life is a continuous reinforcement of what HOLY SPIRIT has taught me, my beliefs, my relationship and my friendship with the Triune GOD. JEHOVA, JESUS, and HOLY SPIRIT. I do a lot of work in the islands, and I could tell you wonderful stories of what God has done for me there, and thru me there. Including the time I had an interaction with an angel. So if you are not living with the supernatural power of God working through you and in your life, and are not able to impart or be a conduit of that miraculous power to others so that they too may receive the Goodness of God in their lives that will help them draw closer to HIM then it is time to get on your knees and ask God to open your spiritual eyes, ears and heart to have the kind of relationship that HE desires for you to have with HIM. JESUS told the Jews along the road that HE carried the cross on in : Matthew 23:37,36Truly I tell you, all these things will come upon this generation. 37O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those sent to her, how often I have longed to gather your children together,as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were unwilling! 38Look, your house is left to you desolate.… As believers we all have a choice. You can choose to be gathered under HIS wing and do what HE says in Jeremiah 33:3 "2"Thus says the LORD who made the earth, the LORD who formed it to establish it, the LORD is His name, 3Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.' or you can choose to be one like in 2nd Timothy 3:7 "7always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. ". And thus, never really experience the fullness of all that God desires for you in this life. May God bless you always.
  9. Everything you said is correct Rmc. That's exactly what Christians who believe in the Bible as God's Holy Word believe. Or I should say many, because I know there is a lot of debate on Revelation. I am a pre-trib rapture believer. And when Jesus says "Come up hither" I will be changed in the twinkling of an eye and I will be a complete Child of God in Spirit, Soul and Body. And I will "forever" be with my LORD JESUS. "Even so, Come LORD JESUS!"
  10. Another good article that explains the Jews did believe in a Triune God http://www.menorah.org/trinity1.html The Trinity Is Jewish By Rachmiel Frydland Most modern Jewish people seem to have made their "peace" with Jesus of Nazareth. Some consider Him to be a great, Jew, or even the greatest Jew who ever lived. Some of our Jewish leaders, as Dr.Heinrich Graetz and Dr. Joseph Klausner, compliment Him on His teaching. Some admire His parables and purity, as Moses Montefiore; and Some as Sholem Asch and others, even consider Him to be the Messiah of the Gentiles. Today we often meet Jewish people who acknowledge that Jesus is the Messiah for Jew and Gentile alike; and some are even willing to share these convictions with other Jewish people. What then holds such Jewish people back from joining with us and accepting Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior? The hindrance some have expressed to the writer of this article is the reluctance to accept the fact that Jesus is supernatural. Moreover, from childhood we have been inculcated with Maimonides' Thirteen Principles one of which is: I firmly believe that the Creator, blessed be his name, is One: that there is no oneness in any form like his; & that he alone was, is, & ever will be our God. We have been thus brought up to think that if we believe that God is One, then this idea excludes any idea of God manifesting Himself through Jesus the Messiah. This Christian concept of God's triunity seemed to us to be a Gentile and pagan idea. NOT SO! Christians, as well as Jewish people, must believe in One God. There is no other. The God of Abraham. Isaac and Jacob is the God of the Jewish people and of the Christians. The Hebrew Scriptures of the Old Testament are authoritative for the Jew and for the Christian. In them is found the confession that is authoritative for all of us. Hear. O Israel. the LORD our God, the LORD IS ONE. Deuteronomy 6:4 TRIUNITY IN TANAKH (Old Testament) While it is universally admitted by both Jews and Christians that God is One and that there is no one beside Him, we are also compelled to acknowledge that the triunity of God is clearly taught in the Torah, the Prophets, and in the Writings --- that is in the whole Tanakh, the Hebrew Scriptures of the Old Testament, & the New Testament. Not only in the Tanakh but also in the Talmudical & Rabbinical writings this concept is well known. Space does not permit us to present proofs from all the sources in this short article. Here we present just a few challenging proofs: THE TORAH: When God (Elohim) create the world He wanted to make absolutely clear to His creation that He is not some abstract mathematical unitarian principle with no analogy in all creation, as some of our philosophers tried to present Him under Aristotelian influence. Instead we read in the holy Torah these words: And (Elohim) said. Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, & over all the earth. Genesis 1:26 Elohim made man, a being composed of a triunity --- body, soul and spirit, in the image of God; and to make this more clear God reveals Himself in His plural form of Elohim and says, "Let us make man." Even those of our rabbis who do not accept as yet the triunity of God, realize that this verse is clear support for such teaching. Thus in Midrash Rabbah on Genesis we find the following comments on the verse: Rabbi Samuel bar Nahman in the name of Rabbi Jonathan said, that at the time when Moses wrote the Torah; writing a portion of it daily, when he came to this Verse which says, "And Elohim said let us make man in our image after our likeness," Moses said, Master of the Universe why do you give herewith an excuse to the sectarians (who believe in the triunity of God). God answered Moses, You write and whoever wants to err let him err. But surely God did not make Moses to write the whole Scriptures in order to make people err. but rather to show them the right way and the right revelation, namely that the One God is a triune God who calls Himself Elohim and who says. Let us make man. THE PROPHETS: There are many Scripture verses which show clearly that God manifested Himself also as the Word by which He created heaven and earth and by which He leads and directs creation. He also manifested Himself as the RuakhHakodesh, the Holy Spirit, who inspired the prophets of God and who did mighty miracles through the great judges of Israel, Gideon, Samson, and David. We want to point out one Scripture which compels us to admit the triunity of God. Isaiah the prophet speaks in the name of God and says: Come near unto me. hear this: I have not spoken in secret from the beginning: from the time that it was,theream I: and now the Lord GOD, and his Spirit, hath sent me. Isaiah 48:16 Here God calls the people to come to Him, but He is sent by the Lord GOD and His Spirit. Exactly the same teaching as we have found in the Torah. we find also in the teachings of God's prophets. How else can it be? The same God who commanded Moses to manifest His triunitarian nature commands also the Hebrew Prophets to do the same. THE WRITINGS: Very clearly we find the same teaching about God in the Psalms and in the other writings of the Hebrew Scriptures. We read in Psalm 2 where the Holy Spirit, the Ruakh Hakodesh, speaks through David and says: I will declare the decree: The LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son: this day have I begotten thee. Psalm 2:7 Here is the Holy Spirit speaking through David and instructing David, that the LORD, which is in Hebrew the ineffable name of Jehovah (which we pronounce as Adonai, has a Son who is begotten of God in a most supernatural way. Maybe King David himself did not well understand the words that he was commanded to write by the Holy Spirit; but as Moses and Isaiah, he obeyed. Be wrote this down for us so that there be no misunderstanding. God who is almighty manifests Himself as a triunity, leaving us no doubt as to His nature. IS TRINITY JEWISH? But is such a concept Jewish? Is it not some Gentile or pagan concept that has somehow crept into our Holy Scriptures as some extreme liberalists would like to tell us? No, this was and still is a Jewish conception of God creating and dealing with His creation and His people Israel in a triune way. This quotation bears it out: Exodus 19 starts with the words, "In the third month." This is explained by the words of Proverbs 22:20, "Have I not written to thee excellent (Hebrew, threefold) things in counsels and knowledge." On this Rabbi Joshua bar Nehemiah said that this is the Torah whose letters are threefold, alf, bet, g(i)ml, and everything is a Trinity: The Torah is Trinitarian, for it is composed of the Torah, the Prophets, and the Writings. The Mishna(talmudical learning) is a trinity composed of Talmud (learning) halakhot (daily Jewish laws) and haggadot (historical items). The mediator consisted of a trinity of Miriam, Moses, & Aaron. Prayers are a trinity of morning, afternoon, and evening prayers. Israel is a trinity consisting of priests, Levites and Israelites. The name Moses in Hebrew consists of three letters. He is of the tribe of Levi, which again is in the Hebrew three letters. from the seed of the Patriarchs who are a trinity of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; in the third month which is Sivan, after Nisan & Iyar on mount Sin whose letters are three as it is written. "And they rested in the wilderness of Sin.".(Midrash Tanhuma on Exodus 19) If, according to our rabbis', God has made everything and arranged everything in a Trinitarian way. then it must also be Jewish and biblical to know that God, Himself is a Trinity. This He is and has manifested Himself as the Savior, Messiah, and Son of God in the person of the Lord Jesus, the Messiah. He then sent down the Holy Spirit, the Ruakh Hakodesh, on the Disciples in the third month, of the Feast of Shavuot, the feast of perfection, celebrated after counting seven times seven. TRINITY AND COMMON SENSE But. can three be one? Does not common sense rebel against such a statement? Must we not state categorically that God is either One or Three? Not so. As a matter of fact everything you come in contact with is not a mathematical concept of one, but usually an item composed of a trinity. The ancient Greek philosopher reasoned out the theory of atoms by simply watching a black cow, eating green grass, and then giving white milk. All things are composed of millions and billions of atoms; but the atom itself is a trinity of a proton, electron and nucleus. Perhaps we could best express it in the words of Dr. Henry Heydt: In Romans 1:20 Paul uses the creation of the cosmos as demonstrating this Godhead (theiotes]. The universe ... is an absolute triunity of space, time, and matter. Each of these in turn is an absolute triunity. Space consists of length, breadth, and depth or height: time is future, present, and past; matter is energy, motion, and phenomena. Here we have not merely an illustration of three in one --- as in the case of light, heat, and ultra-violet rays of the sunbeam, or the manifestation of H2O as liquid, ice, and steam --- but an absolute trinity composed of three absolute triunities. WHAT IS THE MEANING TO YOU ? We now have only to answer the question. "What does it all matter?" The answer is that it matters very much. It proves the truth of God's Word. The most important thing is, what the Jewish Messiah Jesus (Yeshua) said, "For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Do you want peace in your heart & peace with your Creator? Receive this gift of God; confess your sins and believe in God's Son, the Korban (sacrifice) for your sins. Then you will be saved & have perfect peace in your heart. "But as many as received him to them gave he the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name." (John 1:12)
  11. This is a pretty good answer to your question.....The important thing to know is that God continually revealed Himself at different stages to the Jewish people and is even still revealing Himself all the way to the Book of Revelation and after Armageddon when the LORD says, "Then you will look at me and weep and wail for the One you have pierced..." Zechariah 12:10 10 “And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy, so that, when they look on me, on him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a firstborn. So the Jews are still finding out who their God is and what His true nature is. Remember they did not recognize their Messiah when HE came the first time, but the Second Time they will. Anyway here is one answer along with the one I just gave you. FEBRUARY 18, 2009 Did the Old Testament Jews Believe In a Triune God? Resource with John Piper Topic: The Trinity The following is an edited transcript of the audio. Did the Old Testament Jews believe in a triune God? Not with clarity. I think we need the category of progressive revelation, which states that stage by stage in redemptive history, greater and greater clarity as to the nature and activity of God comes. And with that category, no, I don't think that Old Testament Jews were clear about the nature of God in the way that we are clear with the incarnation and the teaching about the Holy Spirit that comes with Jesus. However, having said that, I want to be careful not to deny that they believed in the triune God. Because they believed in the God of Jesus Christ. They believed in the true, living God as he was being revealed in special redemptive history, and that God was the triune God. So they believed in the God who is the triune God. And there were hints along the way, such as, "Let us create man in our image" (Genesis 1:26). I know there are various ways to take that text—like as a royal plural or something—but it is still interesting. It's going to be provocative of a plurality in God. And then the Spirit of God was real. And then there began to be a sense that the Messiah who was to come is no ordinary, mere man. There's more to it than that. This is why Jesus, I think, made Psalm 110:1 his favorite psalm. He referred to it over and over and over again: "Whose son is the Messiah? And whose Lord is the Messiah?" And he drew out that he was more than a mere man. So, Yes, they believed in the triune God. But, No, they did not have clarity that he was a triune God. That came progressively and with greatest clarity for us in the New Testament. John Piper (@JohnPiper) is founder and teacher of desiringGod.org and chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary. For 33 years, he served as pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota. He is author of more than 50 books, including Reading the Bible Supernaturally.
  12. Actually, the whole verse reads Numbers 23:19 says: God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? That verse occurs when Jesus had not appeared on earth in human form. So yes, at the time of this being written God is/was not a man that He should lie. Neither was He at that time the son of man that he should repent....But all that changed when JESUS came to earth and even used the title "Son of Man"...to reference Himself thus drawing attention to that very verse because GOD the SON JESUS did not have to repent because HE was perfect. Neither did HE lie as all men do because HE was GOD as man who didn't lie. Again, you completely discount the prophet prophesying what the "Son" will be and what his names will be which tells you all you need to know about who JESUS is. Isaiah 7:14, and Isaiah 9:6.....Unless your Bible doesn't have these verses...there is no disputing JESUS is GOD.
