  1. Today
  2. Greetings, all, Happy Easter, and hope you are all having a great time. As a new Christian, i was wondering how far and to what extent does a Christian need to follow and set in action the guidelines of the Old Testament. For instance, i believe Christians do not feel the need to circumcise nor do they stop eating pork, for instance. What else? You might like to put it more broadly and think: how important is the Old Testament, apart from the fact that it foretells the coming of Jesus Christ? Do Christians have anything more to do with the Old Testament than that? Thank you for your time and may the Lord bless your hearts and Grace us all, Totoo
  3. The only thing that can be said for certain is that the tomb was empty when the ladies arrived at the tomb before dawn. The actual time of the resurrection is not precisely defined, only the time that the tomb was found open. I might suggest though that Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday for the burial, is not as important as the fact that the tomb is indeed empty.
  4. Apologies - it is confusing the way it is laid out.
  5. Greetings, i'd like to wish everyone a very happy Easter Sunday and may the Lord bless us with His Grace and Love. Totoo
  6. Dear John, As always, many thanks and your kind reply is much appreciated. Makes much sense now, and you already replied my next question about the shift between Israel and Jacob, thanks for that, too. i eagerly await your follow up discussion, it is a tough topic to digest and i cannot have enough help, cheers and bless your heart. Totoo
  7. Are you saying that Jesus' resurrection was on Friday before dark? The Jewish sabbath starts on our Friday night at dusk.
  8. We don't but that's what the Passover week is called in scripture. Luke 22:1 Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover. 2 Chronicles 35:17 And the children of Israel that were present kept the passover at that time, and the feast of unleavened bread seven days. Ezekiel 45:21 In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, ye shall have the passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten. Matthew 26:17 Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover? Mark 14:1 After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to death. Mark 14:12 And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?
  9. In the quote his words are in black and mine are in red. Scripture that I reposted is in green. I didn't accuse him of anything.
  10. John, I am no friend to invicta, but you cannot accuse him of a misquote when he has not done so: John 20 1 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. It was yet dark and the stone was taken away - the implications of that I will not comment on, but his quote is correct. And by the way, Christians do not have a "Passover week of unleavened bread". Catholics do something like it when they eat pancakes........ But not Christians.
  11. Yesterday
  12. That sounds wonderful Invicta. I have not had fish cakes since I was a child. My mother used to make them quite often. I have lost her recipe. Do you have a recipe you would care to share?
  13. This evening I made fishcakes accompanied with Asparagus.
  14. Easter is still not passover. The resurection was in the evening as the Sabbath was approaching. Matthew 28:1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. The women got to the tomb when it was dark. John 20:1The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. So your resurrection morning quote is not correct.
  15. Israel means "God's Prince" which meant that God gave him power and authority and protection, both in heaven and in Earth, to rule over God's nation of Covenanted people. When Jacob ruled in faith the Bible would call him Israel but when he was fearful or in doubt of God's promises and protection he would be called Jacob in the Bible. Many times His name would alternate from Jacob to Israel in joining chapters. The "Nation of Israel" is more properly called "the Children of Israel" and is in reference to all of those who exited Egypt with Moses (including the mixed multitude that did not come physically from Jacob) and partook of the Israelite Covenant at Mount Sinai. Often when God promises to do something for the the nation of Israel, even when they do not have faith in His promises, then He will refer to the nation as Jacob. The "Israel of God" is in reference to those in the covenant of Israel and are also believers in Christ. The "Israel of God" does not include all believers but only the believers who are also in the "covenant of Israel". Those who do not believe in Christ but were born in the covenant of Israel will be "cut off in Righteousness" when Christ returns to set up the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. I can give a verse study later that shows these things, when I have more time.
  16. Thank you Jerry, and thank you No Nicolaitans for your kind replies. i humbly believe the Bible is by far more complicated than that. Of course, there is always a face value, but i am seeking the underlying meanings. Have a great time and bless your hearts. Totoo
  17. Hi! You've broached a very broad topic that isn't easily answered. As to your last question regarding Romans 11:26... My understanding; is that, in light of the book of Zechariah, it does indeed mean that all Israel (those Israelis) who survive until the end of the great tribulation period...shall be saved. Take care!
  18. Romans 11:26 does refer to the Jews, the 12 tribes that are still alive and remain after a certain point in the tribulation period. The Lord is going to lead them in the wilderness and purge out the rebels. Those who are left - ie. all (remaining) Israel will be saved.
  19. Greetings, all, Hope you are all doing great and the Lord is smiling and offering you all His kind Grace and blessings. Studying the Good Book, questions rise after questions, i hope it's a good thing. Reading the Old testament, we come across the word 'Israel' when God tells Jacob: i believe this is the first mention of that name, and then it has been mentioned multiple times on and on, especially through the book of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Hoshua, Judges, Ruth, I Samuel, II Samuel, I Kings, II Kings, I Chronicles, II Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, a good number of Psalms, starting with Psalm 14 and ending with Psalm 149, Proverbs 1, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, Daniel, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Micah, Nahum, Zephaniah, Zechariah, Malachi, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans, I Corinthians, II Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Phiippians, Hebrews, and finally in Revelation 21: 12. if i am not wrong, this word: 'Israel' has been mentioned about 2714 times! i understand that most of the time this word is refered to as the people, or the land, or children of Jacob and suchlike, but what about the first time it was mentioned? and what about the time when it is mentioned in the New Testament? For instance: Or better still: Surely here 'Israel' does not only refer to the Jews or the children of Jacob, and is different, or at least i humbly believe so, but being a nurd, i'd like to make sure. Thanks a lot for your time and kindness. Bless your hearts, Totoo
  20. Last week
  21. Easter is not pagan. It simply means "to rise in the East" and is a early Christian reference to the resurrection morning, which they memorialized at the end of their Passover week. Her is a good link from Brother Will Kinney's website that ducuments the proper meaning of the work and why the pagan myth is in error: https://brandplucked.webs.com/easter.htm?fbclid=IwAR3vdsm5pUf08BLNz8IEoA-pwQDxnsyiZc7tG9M_1FFFFRQb3DAuKoPNxf0
  22. We are not commanded to remember the days, but remember our Lord's death at the Loed's Supper, as often as you do it.. Christ is our passover, and it we should celebrate it we shoudl celebrate it at Passover.. Easter is not passover, it is a papal invention to get the church to celebrate the pagan spring festival. This year passover begins this evening, next year it is a couple of days different in 2021 passover is nearly a week earlier than Easter.
  23. Simple truth is, Jesus was crucified on a WEDNESDAY. There's simply no way to get three days & three nights from Friday to Sunday AM, even with Jesus being resurrected DURING the 3rd day. Good Friday is a bogus holiday, man-made by the RCC.
  24. I'm sorry that you have this baggage, Corinne. Battles of the mind are some of the hardest to fight. God tells us that our minds shape what we are - "As he thinketh in his heart, so is he." This verse is speaking directly about an evil man, but the principle is still there - as we think, so we are. Sin of any kind becomes baggage, and the mind will always battle it. You are battling religious indoctrination, others battle past experiences of a different type. But the Holy Spirit is able - and willing - to help us. The only way to conquer this kind of thing is to completely immerse oneself in scripture and prayer. Maybe you could do a Bible study on the mind? Eph. 5:26 says "That he might sanctify and cleanse it by the washing of water by the word..." The verse is speaking of the church. Who is the church? We are...God can wash our minds by the word. The indoctrination you underwent will be hard to shake - I'm not in any way saying it will be easy. But God is able. Will be praying for you.
  25. ISRAEL’S MOON LANDER CRASHES (Friday Church News Notes, April 19, 2019, www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - Israel’s moon lander Beeresheet crashed on the far side of the moon on April 11. Beeresheet , meaning “in the beginning,” was the first attempt by a private enterprise to put a spacecraft on the moon’s surface. (The project was a joint project between the privately-funded SpaceIL and Israel Aerospace Industries.) The craft successfully made the journey to the moon and entered moon orbit, but there was a glitch in the engine as it neared the surface. Morris Khan, president of SpaceIL, announced that a second attempt will be made. Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who had won his re-election bid the day before and was watching the landing attempt from the control room near Tel Aviv, said, “If at first you don’t succeed, you try again.” Beeresheet accomplished great things on a shoe-string ..
