Please explain it to us. I concur there are probably
Verses that COULD allude to something like a rapture. None the less, it doesn't seem to have been taught.
I don't know why Christians would have missed this revelation by Our Lord...
What? The Catholic Church withheld that info?
Why would Jesus allow that?
clay, your church knows about the verse that paul wrote, however they only believe in a last Resurrection, not the rapture.

Paul also speaks of a"falling away" in the last days.some people believe this is concerning the Rapture, I dont though.

Thank you Father. I never paid much attention to it until that Harold Camping fellow put up billboards last yr announcing it.
Paul Thigpen a former Fundamentalist minister wrote a book called the Rapture Trap. He does point out the novelties of this dcotrine in great detail. Some Protestants accredit the pre-trib theory to Margaret McDonald. There are 3 main theories which some categorize as pre-trib, mid trib, and post tribulation doctrines. Those like Hal Lindsey have caused the death of people creating hysteria. Then there is slways Jack Van Impe and Roxexella with their ever evolving theories. Rapture Doctrines are Protestant creations. The books of Protestants who have revelation all figured are quite numerous and varied.

Glad Justin is enjoying it there. I thought for sure he'd go into culture shock. Well, I hope he does get ideas about one of those girls, and that she's a devout Catholic, and they have lots and lots of beautiful Catholic children who give you rosaries and holy cards for your birthday, and jump all over you with delight giving you wet, sticky kisses making your life a joy!!

Now as far as YOU praying for me, it would be a waste of time since God wouldnt hear your prayer. he doesnt answer the sinner unless that sinner is asking for forgiveness, so if you Pray, ask God to forgive you and allow you to be Born Again.
so another spirtual experience that I had a few days before I got Saved.
during summers, i mowed lawns to get money through the township(summer jobs are made available for students),a nd while mowing I was by the grave of the man that I was named after, and I fel peace.
so in 1982, while under conviction(you wont have a clue about that word, since it isnt in the Bible)I remeered that and I walked down to his gravesite and began to pray, until I heard a voice speaking to me and I was alone(getting blessed)and that voice said to me.
Why seek ye the Lord here, arise and go by the way of the highway, cathie will pick you up there. so i walked over to the highway and cathie came up(my mom was worried and called her).
the voice came out of a small light.
like I said to the sda, My spiriuality is far above that of a drunken catholic priest.
How can you say there is no Catholic Church in the Bible...when clearly, the Catholic Church gathered, edited, compiled and established the Bible. If the Church had not done so, who would have? After all, Christ nor His Apostles never instructed anyone to create a New Testament!(and definitely never told anyone these letters would be the sole source and rule on Christianity)
Right?

Hey Preston,

I am not 100% sure but I believe that the Apostle Andrew was hanged on an olive tree at Patrae, a town in Achaia.

Paul was killed in Rome....

The most likely reason for the setting of the celebration of the Nativity ("Christmas," or "The Mass of Christ," which Protestants do not celebrate, as They have no common heritage with the catholic faith, it being a celebration of "the mass" and all) to coincide so closely with the winter solstice is in fact "competition" with the pagan holiday.
You see efforts motivated by the same reason in many Protestant churches on the same night as Halloween ("The Eve of All Saints").
In order to prevent Their Children from participating in what They perceive to be pagan ritual, some Protestant churches throw a party, so that Their Children will feel content with Their own celebration ... one that emphasizes Christ.
In fact, although the Catholic tradition of celebrating December 25 can be dated to 354, Protestants probably had the idea of a competing party first, in Their "alternate-Halloween " celebrations.

You'll not see any old time churches having halloween party's down here.

Just wanted you to know.

We have hay rides.Nothing to do with halloween.

It's just riding on a wagon loaded with hay,riding through the hollers enjoying God's beauty,the fall colors of the mountains,having a picnic and fellowshipping with each other.

Right?
I can say it because it is true.Men wrote and compiled the bible , Not some church, dont allow yourself to be deceived.

BUT, and I say BUT, if any church sshould get recognition for this work that you speak of, it should be the orthodox church not the roman catholic church.

how could we claim the name of a Christian and not follow His directions?
why does your church feel some need to insist that the bible is not our sole Authority as to how we are to lead a Christian life?

Hello, Hank!

Because he was a Roman citizen, St. Paul was beheaded rather than crucified. Some perk, huh?

Deut 29, v 14,15.
Neither with you only do I make this covenant and this oath;
Deu 29:15 But with [him] that standeth here with us this day before the LORD our God, and also with [him](that is me) that [is] not here with us this day:
God said to me that I would be blessed with land, cattle, that I would lend to others and not borrow, among other blessings,
but there are curses to go on me if I fail the Lord
after i agree with all that he said to me, then he began to pour out His spirit on me, in fact as I said a couple of days ago. three times and on the third time, holes opened up in my belly and water came pouring out, yet I slept on a dry bed after this Filling was complete.
and as being a Prophet, at no time have I ever claimed that office, tho there are people that know me, wish for me to claim it but I have always refused, my office is above that of a prophet, even tho there have been times when I have told people what might occur with them, that in and of itself doesnt make me a prophet, those are just Words of Knowledge, which is one of the gifts of the Holy Ghost that I received on 8/27/82
Old Covenant
Exodus 19:8 The people all responded together, "We will do everything the LORD has said." So Moses brought their answer back to the LORD.

Exodus 24:3 When Moses went and told the people all the LORD's words and laws, they responded with one voice, "Everything the LORD has said we will do."

Exodus 24:7Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read it to the people. They responded, "We will do everything the LORD has said; we will obey."

DEUTERONOMY ch 5

Go you near, and hear all that the LORD our God shall say: and speak you to us all that the LORD our God shall speak to you; and we will hear it, and do it.

Jeremiah 34:13"This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: I made a covenant with your forefathers when I brought them out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. I said,

Malachi 2:10Have we not all one Father? Did not one God create us? Why do we profane the covenant of our fathers by breaking faith with one another?

Same weather prediction here, in fact the temp is already starting to drop. I like the cold! But it's going to be miserable going to church tomorrow.:(

I think you're right, it was during Nero's reign that Sts. Peter and Paul were martyred in Rome. I sometimes wonder if I would have the courage to be martyred for my faith. It's easy to say yes while sitting in the comfort of our living rooms, but if push came to shove...I certainly hope God would give me that grace.
