Amen to all that! When Jesus spoke of Himself coming with clouds (Matthew 24:30, Matthew 26:64, both of which I believe speak to the same event as Revelation 1:7), he did not mean literal clouds. He used the term the same way it was used often in Old Testament prophecty. For example, Isaiah 19:1 say...

Good thoughts JSM17. I like the quote from Daniel Denhard, and think it does put us in the right historical context. Unless we find something in the text indicating that the word should be understood otherwise, it is best to conclude that it means exactly what the original audience would have unders...

Great audio lessons on Calvinism

www.thenarrowpath.com Go to "Topical Lectures" This one is titled "God’s Sovereignty and Man’s Salvation". Steve Gregg gives an honest presentation of the Calvinist view. He does not build up a straw man argument. In fact, listening to most of the first lesson you would almost think he was a calvini...

Where did you grow up? Various places in Texas. Mainly the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Now in the Austin area. How did you come to be interested in spiritual things? Was raised that way, although I actually denied much of what I was taught growing up, even to the point of spending much time as an atheist...

A proper understanding of Hades is extremely difficult (if not next to impossible) due to the following: 1-Many of the passages that speak of Hades are in Revelation, so a proper understanding of Revelation is helpful, if not essential, to understand Hades. Obviously this is a challenge, so I would ...

The promise of the physical land was conditional. Concerning the land promise, Moses says in Deut 28:8 “The LORD will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the LORD your God is giving you. He then goes on to say...

Luke1, I appreciate your comments. While we obviously disagree on several points, I believe we both are striving as best we can to determine what the inspired Word teaches on this matter. Here are some comments in response to your most recent post above, which I hope you will give consideration. You...

Marc wrote: Mark 16:9-20 is not in the earliest Greek manuscripts (among others) so is therefore too unreliable of a text to base any doctrine on. Only the MSS Vaticanus and Sinaiticus do not have the account and they are fourth-century MSS. On the other hand the Peshitto, Curetorian, Coptic, Sahidi...

Marc wrote: Faith encapsulates confession I agree with this. Based on this, Marc, do you agree with me that saving faith is faith that includes/encompasses/encapsulates certain actions? If so, perhaps we are making some headway here. The question then becomes "what actions must fait encapsulate in o...

I just read through most of chapter nine of this work. He separates Revelation 20 from other passages that make it clear that the Kingdom is a present living reality. He also ignores the many time texts in Revelation, as well as those where Jesus and John the Baptist said the Kingdom was at hand. Lu...

And to whom does he say "I will"? To those who faitfully obeyed him, as chapter 11 makes clear. Those listed as having served God faithfully under the Old Covenant are the "they" under consideration in Hebrews 11:40, which says "God having provided something better for us, that they should not be ma...

And it's also exactly what happened to Balaam in Numbers 24:2. Peter went to tell Cornelius what he MUST do. Acts 10:6. What did he tell him to do? The same thing he told those on Pentecost in Acts 2:38. "And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord." Acts 10:48. Notice what Peter sa...

luke1, I appreciate your thoughts and comments. 8) However, I do want to make an observation here. To support your case, you are jumping immediately into some of the most difficult and obscure passages in the Bible. Until we have really done some in depth study of subjects such as the Kingdom of God...
