He's such a weirdo.
Yep.... but is California.

You miss the much bigger point, Rella. Christ was telling his apostles in Luke 21:25a & Matthew 24:29-30a, in their time of ca. 30 A.D., that He shall not return to earth anytime during the next approximately 1,969 years. And because all three of the specific 1999 celestial events described by Christ in Matthew 24:29 come together only once every approximately 100,000 years, the year 1999 is undoubtedly the point in time on the timeline of history that Christ was referring to in Matthew 24:29, way back in 30 A.D. (For me and other Christian astronomers who are aware of this prophecy, it will be very interesting to find out how Christ learned of these three 1999 celestial events nearly 2,000 years beforehand after He returns.)
It's a real shame that no publisher that I contacted was interested in publishing my manuscript during 1994 - 2002 when I tried to find one without success. But, as I have said before, I have learned from past precedents that notable figures such as John the Baptist and Jesus Christ were not recognized for their ministries until well after their ministries were over.
Nothing there speaks of salvation. It only speaks of how God might choose to use one for this purpose or that.The question asked in verse 14 proves that Romans 9 is strictly dealing with God's mercy in giving eternal life to one and not to another.
Romans 9:14~"What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid."The Apostle anticipated the objection of the carnal mind to his doctrine. Does not loving Jacob and hating Esau before they had done any good or evil, imply that there is injustice in God? This objection clearly proves that the view taken of the preceding passage is correct. For it is this view which suggests the objection. Is it just in God to love one who has done no good, and to hate one who has done no evil? If the assertion respecting loving Jacob and hating Esau admitted of being explained away in the manner that you and many do, there could be no place for such an objection. And what is the Apostle’s reply? Nothing but a decided rejection of the supposition that God’s treatment of Jacob and Esau implied injustice. By asking the question if there be unrighteousness with God, he strongly denies that in God there is here any injustice; and this denial is sufficient for believers. According to the doctrine which Paul everywhere teaches, consistently and with that of the whole of Scripture, God is represented as infinitely just, as well as wise, holy, good, and faithful.
Genesis 13:2~"And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold."And so God makes it clear that having physical riches is no measure of a man's salvation. Nor is anyone saved because they are beggars or physically poor. This is neither a literal historical narrative of what happens to rich people (and rich and poor are relative terms), nor a literal portrait of what will happen to poor people. It is a parable painting a spiritual portrait of those who are destitute or poor in spirit, and those who are proud or rich in spirit. In it, we see the humble versus the haughty, as it describes their destiny, based on this, their spiritual condition, not how much money they possess. It is the rich and poor as defined by~
2nd Corinthians 8:9~"For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich."This is the sense of rich and poor that is in view in the parable of the rich man and Lazarus. Those brought low in humility and those lofty spirits who value themselves as self-sustaining.
Post a picture of your sackcloth. Our friendly poster Ken Sublett is AKA Piney. Crazier than an outhouse mouse.LOL! I have talked a little with Ken~he's intelligent, and probably a nice gentleman, but, spiritually crazy would be speaking mildly of his positions on music, etc.
THE RAPTURE Jesus Christ’s Second Coming for the Church Bible Reading: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; John 14:2,3; 1 Corinthians 15:51-53; Titus 2:13; Rev. 4:1,2.Sir, you start many posts but never stay around to debate them. I offered to debate this subject with you, but so far, no response. So, you must be a copy and paste guy, with no solid convictions of your own? Is this correct?
I don't believe in a 7 year tribulation. The AntiChrist is not an individual person. And there is certainly not a pre-trib rapture. I have been trying to explain this a multitude of times to this rag tag bunch.Amen on all three.
And I am NOT one of God's two witnesses as you consider yourself. Are you sure you are not another Church of Christ plant? Piney, is this you?The two witnesses are Jews and Gentiles that make up the church of Jesus Christ~so brother, you are correct that we are not AS SoD disturbingly thinks that he is, but "collectively" as believers in Jesus Christ we are. SoD is to be a pity for much learning has made him somewhat mentally an spiritual wacko.
Nothing there speaks of salvation. It only speaks of how God might choose to use one for this purpose or that.To you apparently.
