WRONG.  It is not 50 days after Passover; rather it is the 50th day after First Fruits.

Not quite right. Pentecost was the 50th day after First SHEAF of the firstfruits of the barley and winter's harvest was "WAVED before the LORD" ... on the third day after it was cut from "the corners of the land" on Abib 14-- in other words; First Sheaf was waved on Abib 16.

I questioned why he would want to be so nice to me and why all of a sudden. I was basically thinking that he was being so nice to me because he was doing something and felt guilty about it. When we got into the fight he said that he doesn't know why I give him the 3rd degree when he is genuinely trying to help me. I just always assume there is a reason he is doing something - nice or otherwise and I immediately chalk it
Up to he is talking to some girl!
I don't know how to get these thoughts or feelings out of my mind
cccflagirl, what you've written above demonstrates that you believe something about people or men. Sometime in your life something happened, probably in childhood, where someone deceived you, probably someone close to you since it made a lasting impact. Through your life this belief was probably reinforced by other people. Did you have previous boyfriends who cheated? You stated that you assume that there is a motive behind his behavior, good or bad. For you to have those thoughts, there is a false belief about yourself/others. Ask God to reveal that to you.
If you want some help with this, I will change my profile settings so you can email me.

I've thought of another verse from scripture which reminded me of the relation of fear in the proces of conversion and being saved being Biblical, perhaps even more clearly than (some of) the verses I posted earlier:

Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
(Phillipians 2:12)

 

I was converted 40 years ago, and apart from the wrong picture I used to have of Him that came from man, I have never had reason to be afraid of my Dad. Why would I?
Godly 'fear' isnt the same as being frightened into having to believe because otherwise you may go to hell. Sounds a lot like how some poor kids were treated in catholic convent schools, literally beaten and pummeled and threatened with hell, because of their 'terrible sins' which were of course only normal childhood behavior in the main. It turned many away from God for life, not surprisingly.

Beta - tread lightly.  When you start saying things like "the NT Passover Jesus instituted 24 hours prior to the OT observance" you are going down a path you probably do not want to walk - one that would validate Sunday worship. You are changing the days and times set by the Lord.  (which is a work of anti-christ according to Daniel)

<<Sunday worship>> will NOT be <validated>. On the contrary, if the 14th and the 15 th are not distinguished the path is paved for a Sunday Resurrection and hence for <<Sunday worship>>.

Jesus was buried on "THE WHOLE-DAY"—"The Preparation which is the Fore-Sabbath”—on the day before “the Sabbath according to the (Fourth) Commandment”— 'Friday' without a doubt!

THEREFORE ROSE He from the dead the day after ‘Friday’—“on the Sabbath” Matthew 28:1;

And THEREFORE had He been crucified and DIED He the day before ‘Friday’—DIED He on “The Preparation of the Passover” on the Fifth Day of the week (‘Thursday’).

“Early on the First Day of the week He THE RISEN APPEARED, first, to Mary Magdalene.” Mark 16:9 John 20:11-17.

How about:

Eph 4.11 And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.

Not a command - a gift.
I've been helped by some preachers for sure, and thanked God for it.

Can't say the same about any books but the Bible. (unless on other subjects)

I believe teachers in the sense of the verse you quoted are the same that focus on teaching people the Bible not write their own books. There might be books focused on this end though.
I'd scrutinize them from cover to cover though before ever recommending such a book to anyone.

It's too bad I haven't been able to find a review of this book you suggested for us to read.

the OT way of reckoning and counting which is correct,
but it does not take into account the NT Passover Jesus instituted 24 hours prior to the OT observance and therefore must have a bearing on Jesus'death, burial and resurrection bringing it foreward. I will study this more closely for changes were made in the law during transition from OT to New.



The Lord’s Supper is <<the NT Passover>>; it is NOT <<the NT Passover>>; it is “The Lord’s Supper”.

<<<Jesus instituted … The Lord’s Supper … 24 hours prior to the OT observance>>> 100%!!!!!

<<The OT observance …  of the FEAST of passover … must have (had) a bearing on Jesus' death, burial and resurrection>>> 100%!!!!!

To be exact,

Abib 14 <<had direct bearing on Jesus' DEATH>> Mark 14:12-15:41 Matthew 26:17-27:56 Luke 22:7-23:49 John 13:1-19:30 1Corinthians 11:23 …
“The day they KILLED the passover and REMOVED leaven”
Exodus 12:15a,b.

Abib 15 <<had direct bearing on Jesus' BURIAL>> John 19:31-42 Mark 15:42-47 Matthew 27:57-61 Luke 23:54-56 …
“The first night” John 19:39, 1Corinthians 11:23 of “seven days no leavened bread shall be eaten” Exodus 12:15c
“the Jews” John 19:38 kept <<the OT observance>> John 28:8 cf. 19:31.

<<<changes were made in the law during transition from OT to New.>>>
Denied.

The New is the exact fulfilment of the Old Testament.
The Old Testament prophesied BOTH the fourteenth and fifteenth days of the First Month;
the fourteenth for the slaughter of the sacrifice without exception; and
the fifteenth for the EATING—BURIAL—of the sacrifice in the time in between the exodus and Christ without exception.

Before the Promised land had been entered the EATING—BURIAL—is ALSO dated on the fourteenth.
At first BOTH the fourteenth and the fifteenth were
NAMED “the Selfsame Day”—“the WHOLE day”—“the BONE-day”—the BURIAL-day—and were BOTH
DATED: “the FOURTEENTH day of the First Month”.

There is NO discrepancy and NO contradiction. There is only the faithfulness of the Almighty God in his Providence VISIBLE AND MANIFEST.

Most who go to his church yes, not all who watch in tv. However as I said, I dont know anyone who was drawn to God by some "you miserable worms will go to hell" talk.

Cultural response.

That approach worked well in the Brittish colonies during the 1600s and 1700s.
Maybe then but not now.
