  1. Here's the deal: one shot is fired with the word "RUN!" on the bomb. The next one is fired one second after the first shot. That should give them enough time to be warned.
  2. Bring it on!!! Would love to wake up at the close of Ramadon and hear that the HCL is reality. Great news.
  3. moose 57, none of us are, within ourselves, worthy. The reason God came to earth in Jesus is to become our means of becoming worthy. That's the beauty of the Gospel. I trust His worthiness and not my own. If I trust in Jesus Christ and what He did at the cross, and die to ourself and let Him reign in us, then we are worthy through Christ. I am, in regard to salvation, nothing; until I have HIM.
  4. He has demonstrated that he is willing to whatever it takes to win. And just like the others in the race, he will destroy and demean another person to get the job done. That's not leadership or character but the traits of a bully looking for a place to roost.
  5. BUT we haven't come up with anyone who knows how to lead with integrity and strength.
  6. My "pick of the litter" was Rubio, but he was pulled into the stream of slug-infested sewer water of political power and rhetoric. I think he is too far down the stream for a life preservers.
  7. IF such a leader would show up and declare his platform, respectfully debate the ISSUES, and run with integrity and truthfulness with full disclosure of his/her past dealings, then the present establishment would try to "ride him out" on a rail.
  8. The present political climate should be an embarrassment to the citizens of the United States. Both the existing political party in the White House and the existing political parties, Republican and Democrat, put on a despicable display of what I don’t want in a president! Every person from all sides has proven that they do not have what it takes to be leader of the United States. Where is the strengths of honesty, of character, of morality, of wisdom that should be the hallmark of the president of America? Childish name-calling, silly mocking may win those who want to be entertained and accepted by those of the same mindset, but it will not do for a nation looking for substantive leadership. Where have all the good men and women gone?
  9. Saw this video a couple of years ago; still do not know how he "pulled it off." It's a good trick that will put you into a panic if you are see it in person. There will always be Simeons around.
  10. This thread certainly changed!! It started out as how one comes to know God, now it filled with the teaching of the Witnesses bazar view of Revelation. Quite a shift in direction. One thing we all need to remember. It is not so much how well we know God (though that is EXTREMELY important), but rather "does God know us?" Does He know my name? Is my name in the "Book of Life"? If we have the salvation offered and given by God, through Jehovah, His Son, then our salvation is secure. Our sin (unbelief) is forgiven, our names are in the Book of Life, and our place among the redeemed within the hall of Heaven and the Presence of God should not be doubted. But faith and trust in the blood of Jesus Christ as our LORD is essential to that salvation. Believe, repent, and confess His name, and He will confess our name before the Throne.
  11. Excellent post, George; and hits the nail squarely. But you are confronting a lie that has been believed by so many for so long that it will be challenged as heresy. Hang in, you have the word of God and history supporting your position. Nelg
  12. Maranatha! What a Great Day that will be!! The LORD will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, with a blast from the trumpet of God, the dead bodies of both the righteous and the wicked will be raised to be rejoined to their spirit. Judgment will take place for the wicked, but the righteous will go to be with the LORD. This physical world will be destroyed and a new heaven and new earth will be given to us; one that is fitted for an eternal existence. God will be glorified and recognized by all humanity and the righteous will praise and honor Him forever. What a Day that will be!!!
  13. I think this was discussed at some length awhile back. Thanks NYK. Why would God need to use any medications if He is healing His creatures?! He speaks and whatever He wants to happen happens. The disciples were given power from the Holy Spirit (God's Spirit) to heal the sick and do miraculous things. It is amazing that we think that God "thinks and acts" like we would think and act. How foolish.
  14. Ridiculous. The writer certainly knows little about the Bible and nothing about Christ Jesus, the LORD. This is ancient gnosticism and is throughly refuted by Paul, the apostle in some of his letters in the Bible.
  15. By the way, will you please identify the "four corners" of the earth on the circle of the earth? What substance makes up the "firmament" to make it a hard surface? How thick is it? While you're finding that information, you might tell us what the "hard surface" of the "firmament" is made of: gold? silver? tin-foil? If, as you say, that the earth is flat, how is it fixed in its place?
  16. Here is the square miles, you do the hemisphere calculations. 1. Asia - 17,139,445 square miles (44,391,162 square km) 2. Africa - 11,677,239 square miles (30,244,049 square km) 3. North America - 9,361,791 square miles (24,247,039 square km) 4. South America - 6,880,706 square miles (17,821,029 square km) 5. Antarctica - About 5,500,000 square miles (14,245,000 square km) 6. Europe - 3,997,929 square miles (10,354,636 square km) 7. Australia - 2,967,909 square miles (7,686,884 square km)
  17. Prayers for a speedy recovery. Keep "kick'en" and don't let the barn door swing back and slam on your tail!
  18. The authorities , , , who ever they are or become . . . will never find my weapons. Never, never, never. And I use them every day.
  19. We must die to ourselves that Christ can become all in all and live within the individual (Gal 2:20) We, the old man of sin must die (Rom 6:6-7) to self (Gal 6:14 ) and sin (Rom 6:2, Gal 5:24 ), so that we can live a new life in Christ (Rom 6:4, 11; 2Cor 5:17).
  20. The more one gets to know Christ, the more one knows God, for Christ is God. The more one submits to the Holy Spirit and yields to His instruction, the more one knows God, for the Spirit is God. The reason Christ came to earth is to show us the Father. Thus, the more we see Jesus Christ in Scripture and are saved by His blood, the more we know God and will live like God wants us to live.
  21. The subjection of Christ is only temporary until the kingdom is delivered up to God (Godhead) at the resurrection of the body. Then the Godhead (Christ, Spirit, and Father) will be united together again. They are united NOW, but with Christ becoming man, He gave up the equality with the Godhead in order to redeem mankind (Jno 17; Phil 2:5-11; 1Cor 15).
  22. Nice and clear. Thanks. LAIC, prayers are with you and your continued search for Truth. Been busy today and have not had time to get to all I wanted to do. Anyone who addresses a biblical or spiritual component that effects the life of a believer (or unbeliever), challenges a biblical doctrine, or questions the foundational issues will be subject to peer review. That is, they will have their words questioned by others to see if what they have written or said will stand the test of scrutiny. It is only right and correct to challenge any teaching to see if it is consistent with the rest of Scripture. That is the meaning of 1Jno 4:1ff "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world. We are from God; he who knows God listens to us; he who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error." There are many people teaching something about Christ or the church (His body of believers) that they might fulfill the commission of Christ (Mt 28:19-20). If they are new to the word of God, they have a tendency to follow the popular teacher and not study God's word on their own to find out if it is truth. There are three important biblical ways in which we are to use discernment. (1) Test all teaching for sound doctrine, and especially against the core doctrines of the Faith as laid down in the sixty six books of the Bible. One of the prime rules of truth is that it does not contradict other truth. It is called the law of non-contradiction. For example, Jesus is the Christ. He cannot be both Christ and not Christ, which would be a contradiction. Paul was very clear and blunt about accepting "another gospel", which was a perversion of the gospel (Gal 1:6-8). (2) Test all prophesies to see if they are biblical and if the predictions of a prophet all come true. Someone who says they are prophets and their words fail to be fulfilled are no prophet from God. (3) Test their lives, words and actions for the fruit of the Spirit. If a teacher of the word is living a sin-filled life, then it is doubtful that that person will speak truth if it suits his/her purpose. (Don't get me wrong. We all sin, but we do not continue to live in sin. We are cleansed by Christ's blood. But if a person makes a claim to be a spokesman for God, but out of his/her mouth comes vile words and they live an immoral life, then it doubtful that they teach truth (James 3). Well, there I do again! Getting off into teaching when I just wanted to say, "keep on keeping on," grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ our Savior. Nelg.
  23. Are they making the old notes (the ones that most of us have) null and void??
