      Psalms 119:1-8                                         Sep. 5 - Oct. 2, 2019
      1 ALEPH. Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.
      2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
      3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.
      4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.
      5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
      6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.
      7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.
      8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.
      The following verse stood out to me...
      5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
      At first glance it seemed to me this person’s soul is poured out with intense desire to have God’s direction in keeping His Word.
      I made a small wood fire in our backyard for my granddaughter, Julia, since she would be staying overnight with us. My wife and Julia stayed outside at the fire for about half an hour. Then, I found myself alone to watch the fire die out on a particularly lovely evening. So I took my verse from above and began to repeat it for memorization. As I repeated the verse, I tried to contemplate the words and apply them to what I was seeing around me. 
      The moon and stars were out now peering through the scattered clouds above.
      [Genesis 1:16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. Genesis 1:17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, Genesis 1:18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.]
      Thought 1         
      The moon has stayed his course since the day God created him, also the stars, obeying the statutes directed by God from the first day they were created. Can you imagine God’s direction to the Moon and stars, “moon you will have a path through the sky above the earth, stars you will occupy the firmament above the moon and be clearly visible in the cloudless night sky.”
      Then, the trees, grass, even the air we breathe obey the statues God gave them from the beginning. None of these creations have souls, none have hearts, none have intelligence, but they all observe God’s statutes, His instructions for their limited time on earth.
      Thought 2
      What if we were like the moon, stars, trees, grass, or the other creations which have no soul? We would be directed to keep God’s statutes without choosing to keep them. This is not the image of God, there would be no dominion over other creatures, or over the earth. We would not be capable of experiencing the joy and peace of learning the love of God
      Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
      Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
      Thought 3 (October 2, 2019)
      Is the psalmist pleading God to force God’s statutes to become the man’s ways? No, he is speaking of his own failure in keeping God’s statutes and his desire to keep them, very much like Paul in Romans 7:14-25.
      God doesn’t work through force to turn men from their ways that they would desire His statutes or desire God Himself. Men must reject (repent) put aside his own ways and voluntarily seek God and His statutes.

... Like I mentioned in the earlier post I care more about what Scripture says than terminology, that's why I was interested in knowing what event you believe 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 is talking about.

This event will take place at the end of the Millennium. The rapture of the "Church of the first born" (Heb. 12:23) will take place in less than a month.

"September 18, 2020 is the starting point for a new period of time, lasting 50 prophetic years. This date corresponds to the first day of the first month in the prophetic reckoning of years. In the tenth chapter of the book of Ezra, Scripture speaks of the events that will take place in the Tabernacle of heaven after Church of the first born is gathered there. Notice, Scripture uses a new count of time.

And they “sate downe in the first day of the tenth moneth to examine the matter” (Ezra.10:16)

If we count 270 days (nine prophetic months) from the date of September 18, 2020, then the next (271 days) will be “the first day of the tenth moneth” - June 15, 2021, this is the day when the Church of the first born will enter the heavenly Tabernacle for the first time. It is said: And they “sate downe …”

And the meeting will make an important decision after three months:

“And they made an ende, with all the men that had taken strange wiues, by the first day of the first moneth” (Ezra.10:17)

The first day of the first month (already the next prophetic year) will be Monday, September 13, 2021. By this day, on the eve of it, the command “to restore and to build Ierusalem” will be issued (Dan.9:25). Here we are talking about making an important decision - building the Temple not made with hands. In the ninth chapter of the book of Daniel (Dan.9:25), continuing to count the years unto the Messiah the Prince, Scripture confirms the correctness of the specified date.

“from the going foorth of the commandement to restore and to build Ierusalem, vnto the Messiah the Prince, shall be seuen weekes” (Dan.9:25)

Christ will become the Messiah the Prince on the DAY of Pentecost, December 28 - 29, 2069. The 49 prophetic years contain 17640 days. After counting down the days, we find that the commandment “to restore and to build Ierusalem” will be issued on Sunday, September 12, 2021. 49 prophetic years are counted from this date “vnto the Messiah the Prince”..."

Konstantin, You have been told before that this website requires that scripture quotes be posted from the KJV. Your most recent post is not KJV. This requirement is clearly posted in the website rules.

If you continue to post scripture that is not KJV it will be deleted.

Matthew 25:13
Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Mark 13:32
But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

Konstantin, what part of no man knows the day or the hour do you not agree with? By the way, that is the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, who stated that. If you disagree with Jesus and His Word, then your opinions are just vain philosophy.

Modern "Christians" are "slow bellies" (Tit.1:12)(KJV1611)

What is with some people posting random comments or verses that have nothing to do with the topic at hand?

Konstantin, In the first place I did not remove any text at all. In the second place I was talking about the quote you posted from lordway,ru. What follows is a copy and paste of that quote and it is not KJV.

“from the going foorth of the commandement to restore and to build Ierusalem, vnto the Messiah the Prince, shall be seuen weekes” (Dan.9:25)

Actually, Brother Jim, I am compelled to express a correction - That which Konstantin presented above IS quoted from the King James translation, specifically from the that which is presented in the 1611 King James translation (including the 1611 spellings and punctuation).

(Note: Although I am compelled to express this correction, I do NOT stand in agreement with the doctrinal position that Konstantin has presented in his above posting.  I suppose that this would make me one of those "slow bellies," huh.  However, I do not stand in agreement because I would contend that Konstantin's posting above has wrested passages of Scripture out of their context.)

Thank you Brother Scott for this correction, I stand corrected. This archaic spelling always irks me when it is so easy to post normal every day spelling.

For me this kind of thing makes Scripture difficult to read and comprehend. I don't know about anyone else, but I get bogged down in zeroing in on the spelling at the expense of the actual Scripture.

To Konstatin, my sincere apologies for my misunderstood reprimand.

He may have you as a "slow belly" but he has me missing the Rapture altogether.

The other week a beloved brother in the Lord called me a "little devil" because I told him he shouldn't be calling a certain pastor a cult leader in league with the RCC because his church rents a building owned by the Knights of Columbus to hold services. 

Christians can be really funny at times.

Of course, this brother believes in "house churches" and pastors one himself with the membership of himself, his wife and his child.

And I like reading the inspired text of the Bible. God authorized 54 people to translate the KJV1611. 47 of them made this translation. Only one change was made to the KJV1611 by these people. This verse (Ruth 3:15). Here the word "he" has been replaced by the word "she". The rest of the changes were made by other people. God promises these people the following things:

18For I testifie vnto euery man that heareth the wordes of the prophesie of this booke, If any man shal adde vnto these things, God shall adde vnto him the plagues, that are written in this booke.

19And if any man shall take away from the wordes of the booke of this prophesie, God shal take away his part out of the booke of life, and out of the holy citie, and from the things which are written in this booke. (Rev.22:18,19) (KJV1611)

Below are just a few of the changes these people have made over the course of three hundred years:

I can't open the website given, not even on my phone, so I have to wonder what the issue here is. This all sounds suspiciously like 7th Day Adventism-related stuff. 

And this idea of picking verses out of scripture, like Ezra, that are purely historical, and using them to set dates and times of prophetic events, with absolutely nothing in the context to assume it to be related to prophecy of ANY kind, is the mark of a cult, that there is someone who has been given some special knowledge that is outside of the basic understanding of scripture. 

Konstantine, what organization is this? Why so hard to open their site? Who are they? Who is their leader? You're clearly cutting and pasting from the site, please tell me how we are to understand, within context, that Ezra, a historical book, speaking of things they did then, is supposed to be interpreted as prophecy, particularly of Christ's return and things of the end? How was this come upon? To whom did God give this particular word of knowledge, and when?  

Edit: I DID find out that .ru domains are Russian Union, which is probably why we can't open them. Too suspicious.

Picking a date and saying that is when the rapture will happen reminds me of a story often told when I was a kid growing up in the Shenandoah Valley. People said it was a true story.

The story goes that a local, country church studies Revelantion and determined that it would happen on such and such a date. On the day of the Rapture a church member, a farmer, climbed up onto the top of his hay stack to watch. A neighbor, who did not believe their forecast slipped up on his blind side and set the hay stack on fire. Suddenly the farmer smelled smoke and saw flames coming up. It was reported that he exclaimed; 

"Just as I suspected, I'm in hell."

Man. Was that supposed to be this June 15th? I lost track of time. O well. Maybe next rapture.
