<quoted text>As you most likely know, I was a contributing factor in said thread. But, that's besides the point.
Regarding my last question, I wonder how so many can focus only on the English term "God" without knowing the original term and definition used. It seems, to me, that more than enough are mesmerized by the capitalization of the English, capitalized term rather than the original. And because of this, the lies continue. Rarely does anyone realize that any lie, even after a minute time, can appear as truth. We were warned that the devil and his minions can be perceived as angels of light, and here's where pride comes in.
Many know the scriptures. And many have read the dangers of falsehood, according to the scriptures. But, how many apply what's warned to themselves? How many, even for a second, consider the possibility that they've learned and adhered to lies? None, or very little. We all read the bible, but none are so bold to question the doctrines they've learned, or the beliefs they have.
What puzzles me the most is when one, or even some, will agree with post after post, without repentance. But, then, when you reveal something that's not according to what they've believed, NOW they disagree! Why was I on point before, but not now? Why did I speak truth before, but now, I'm a liar? Why was I orientated before, but disorientated now? Why do your religious leaders have to be right, but me wrong? Have they studied as much to declare, without question, the Truth?
This is the end of the ages. Shouldn't new revelations be expected? Many people from all denominations and religions claim that "God," in some way, is speaking through them. But, who's telling the truth? LAWEST100? Native from PA? Seentheotherside/Seen Is Awesome? Me?
Fear has always been a main contrivance among the elite, whether religious, philosophical, or what-have-you. The clock never stops, even if we feel that whatever took forever. The spiritual clock is coming to its fulfillment. This is the time to love. continue, mu Brother.
Thanks Brother, that was very enlightning.

REVELATION

Rev 1:7 (Part 3)

"Look, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of Him. So shall it be! Amen. "

1. He is coming -

a. There are a whole bunch of different doctrines out there regarding a rapture - whether it's pre-tribulation, post-tribulation... yadda yadda... but the truth is Jesus is coming back for a 2nd and last time. The doctrine that The Church, and by church I mean those who genuinely believe Jesus to save them, well... the doctrine that The Church will escape the tribulation before the rapture is seemingly not going to be the case.

(1) Origins of the pre-trib rapture doctrine:



(2) But most likely, there is going to be a post-tribulation type of rapture when The Lord Jesus returns... that "twinkling of an eye thing" for Believers from both the past and present will happen while the earth will be purged with fire.

(a) There is a lot more detail to that (twinkling of an eye situation) but perhaps we can get into that later. OYE had a good grasp on this... I didn't believe what she was saying at first but when I researched it myself I had to concede to what she had said regarding the matter. Also, in researching her views, I found out that the pre-tribulation rapture theory was (or should I say "is") fraudulent. All this time I had went on what my ministers had taught me... but it wasn't entirely their fault either because they too had been deceived.

2. With the clouds -

a. I looked at the original language for this and it gives a cloud in a singular form instead of plural. That would make sense because when Jesus ascended back up to The Father in heaven in the book of Acts (Acts 1:9) and as the 11 disciples watched Jesus go up "a cloud" hid Him from their sight. And it goes on to say that He will return in the same way. I just wonder if that cloud is the same Shekinah cloud that was on the mount of transfiguration, or rested as the pillar of cloud on the tabernacle in the wilderness during Moses' time, or the same cloud that overshadowed Mary... if that is the case then this cloud would represent the Divine Presence and Glory of God.

a. In any case, Jesus is returning... and we should be in the waiting and "on the ready and alert" at all times in regards to our own Faith in the Lord.

(1) Jesus: "So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him." Matthew 24:43

REVELATION

Rev 1:7 (Part 4)

"Look, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of Him. So shall it be! Amen. "

__________

1. He is coming with the clouds - When Jesus returns that is called the Day of the Lord.... some people know it as Judgment Day, the Day of Judgement and by many other metaphors. It will be a terrible day for those who rejected the gift of Salvation but a day of vindication for those who had given up their lives for the sake of the Kingdom. It is a day just like when The Lord closed The Door to Noah's ark... that door being a symbolic reference to Jesus being the Door. I'm sure there were people knocking on that Ark but the Door was shut. Jesus had said previously that just like it was in the day of Noah so shall it be in the day of the Son of Man. Everything on earth was purged except for the remnant of lives, human and animal, that were on the Ark. Now, only 8 survived that mighty flood but the world population couldn't have been no where near as populated as it is now... even so, Jesus said that only a few will be saved... so whatever that ration is it is definitely more than 8 who will be saved. Here are some other scriptures that support Rev 1:7 -

* Apostle Peter: "BUT THE DAY OF THE LORD WILL COME like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.

Peter continues:....Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness. " 2 Peter 3:10

** Jesus: "There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time they will see THE SON OF MAN COMING IN A CLOUD with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

Jesus continues:...Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man." Luke 21

*** Apostle Paul: "Now, brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of THE LORD WILL COME like a thief in the night. While people are saying,“Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

Paul continues:...But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief." I Thessalonians 5

__________

Jesus: "But concerning that day or that hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, BUT ONLY the Father. Be on guard, keep awake. For you do not know when the time will come."

Today's Prayer

Dear Father in Heaven, This day I lift up families to you. There are so many distractions in life. People get sidetracked by their own desires, the quest for more, what others think, trying to 'climb the ladder' of success, activities and more activities, working too hard, illness, challenges and problems, and so on. We often become consumed with all of that and distracted from all that is most important. God, I pray that every person spending this time with you right now will see the need to make time for family, to acknowledge and show love for their loved ones, to prioritize their lives and obligations, to focus on what would Jesus do. May we not become districted by everything else. May we put you first, our families next, and everyone and everything else after. Please guide us, give us wisdom, and encourage us this day and in the days ahead. In Jesus' name we come to you and thank you, amen.

Primetime with God

You have done worse than that Darwin. You are a very nasty person and have a hissy fit when someone doesn’t believe as you do.
What you seem to fail to realize that you are man too and your beliefs do not a truth make any more than someone else’s does. You say you don’t need anyone’s approval. Well guess what, others don’t need your approval or nastiness when they don’t get it.
I'd like to dedicate todays encouraging word to you....

Very well put, Sis. God reveals to us what He does through His mercy and grace, and we are to take Him at that by faith.
He has demonstrated His triune nature and man has rejected all three; in the wilderness, in the person of Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit from Pentecost until now.

FYI...

Phaedra said on Facebook that RoadRunner passed away yesterday. Her heart stopped while she was in Surgery. She was a young woman with 2 children. I believe she lived with her Mom. Please keep her family in Prayer (or good thoughts)

<quoted text>Good early morning G... the way I see it is that only One could have ever boasted that... that is The Lord Jesus Christ at the time:
Jesus (talking about Himself): "No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven--the Son of Man."....
Seeing as Enoch was taken to heaven and returned and there are several instances of people going to heaven (if not returning) and that Elijah is in Heaven and supposed to return (that is why Jews set a plate for him at Passover) and the phrase "Son of Man" means either "good person" or Mankind" that the verse is misinterpretted. the OT is false or Jesus is wrong.

Basically we are God's representatives on the earth and the context of psalms 82 is to point out, that as representatives that man ought to do good......
That isn't what the word 'Elohim' used in the Psalm means though. Do we call our Congressmen gods ? There is no indication of simile in the Psalm. It does not say "like gods" it says "Gods".

....
Adam & Eve were created with their human spirits, soul and body intact. When Adam sinned, their human spirits died the human family had inherited that same dead spiritual nature. If one is not born again, that is, born of the Spirit... then, from my understanding they are basically, spiritually dead. The only thing alive is their soul and body (their fleshly nature) and that will perish each in their own way unless one is saved. At least that is how I see it from a biblical standpoint.
<quoted text>
I'm not sure where you are getting that "man's sins are proof of his divinity" from. If anything, it just proves reign over our freewill, unless of course, we are forced to do something against our freewill. I agree with your last sentence except the scriptures also teach about Salvation only through Him. Even Jesus speaks of that.
To the first part, according to Geneis we are only clay and the spirit of God. There is nothing to 'die' however the potential of the spirit can lay dormant, be used for good or be used for evil. To be 'reborn' in Judaism and the way I believe Jesus would have used the term, is to simply rouse the dormant spirit for good. That we have a choice in the matter is what makes us gods.

Several times in Genesis it says humans are gods but mortal. Animals do not have free will, not even Angels, only Gods and Humans.
