  2. Michael, Welcome aboard! Glad to hear that you are solid KJV. It is our hope to be a blessing, Alan
  3. Today
  4. Why can't this simply refer to Mary's Womb? I offer this as reference... Psalms 139:15 "My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth" The phrase 'Lowest parts of the Earth' is clearly referring to a Mother's belly during pregnancy. Even the word 'Pit' refers to the Womb... Isaiah 51:1 "Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the LORD: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged" Look at the word 'first' in the verse. What was the first thing Jesus did when he came to Earth? He descended into Mary's Womb to become born. Simple and beautiful.
  5. I'm not entirely convinced of this. The phrase 'afar off' could mean as far as Heaven is from Hell. I believe this type of 'separation' is alluded to here... Luke 16:26 "And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence."
  6. 2 Corinthians 11:2 "For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ."
  7. My humble opinion... Israel ultimately represents the Glorified Body. More specifically, the Spiritual Genetics of the Glorified Body. I'm referring to verses like this... Romans 11:24 "For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?" The Saved are grafted in. Another way to look at it is that the Saved become Abraham's Seed... Galatians 3:29 "And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise" How is that possible? We must be Born Again.
  8. Hello. My name is Michael. I noticed this forum uses the KJV so I signed up. The last forum I visited really hated the KJV and so I didn't fit in.

  11. Yesterday
  12. The day of the Lord is very very very near because Israel the nation not desired is gathered. Zephaniah 1:14-15,2:1-3 14 The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. 15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, 2:1-3 1 Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired; 2 Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD'S anger come upon you. 3 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD'S anger.
  13. Dear Alan, i am very grateful for your kindness. i totally understand and can identify and i apologise. i did not mean to say the good Pastor was wrong, mistypes and misprints happen all the time, but as i confessed to John, i have been too stupid to believe, and i hope you will pardon me for that and for my impatience. i will try harder and again, many thanks for your feedback and assistance. Bless your hearts, Totoo

  15. Brother Totoo, After my salvation experience I only had a New Testament. In my upbringing we did not go to church, we did not have a Bible in the house, and, like my father which I followed to a ' T ' I was basically agnostic. One of my fellow airmen (I was in the Air Force at the time), invited me to go to church so I went with him. So, one day after I started to go to church, with only my New Testament, the pastor mentioned to turn to one of the minor prophets (I forgot which one), and I looked in my New Testament table of contents and could not find the book. So, in my mind I thought that the pastor made a mistake as there was not the book mentioned. So, after fumbling around in the New Testament trying to find what kind of mistake the pastor made I finally turned to my friend and in a whisper I said something like, "I think he (the pastor), mentioned to go to the wrong book as I cannot find the book." My friend took the New Testament out of my hand to look ( and thankfully very politely), somewhat said, "the problem is not with the pastor it is with you. You do not have a complete Bible. The book the prophet mentioned is in the Old Testament." At first I did not know what he meant by "Old Testament," but the Lord gave me some grace and after the service was over I asked my friend to explain more fully and help me. I learned some valuable lessons that one Sunday morning. (1) I need to get an Old Testament. (2) I was very ignorant concerning very basic bible knowledge. (3) Not to criticize a pastor unless I have all the facts in order. (4) To hold my tongue. (5) To ask advice. God bless you in your journey of learning the scriptures. Alan
  16. Hello Family of God, Words contained within [brackets] are used to expound on or place emphasis on certain words or phrases in particular; there may also be grammatical errors: such as punctuation, sentence fragments, and misplaced modifiers, so my apologies if you may have trouble with any content concerning contextual information given in this message. ALL CAPS within [brackets] are used to place extreme importance and special attention within the context of Bible passages to the reader. *Asterisks* are used when describing God's Nature. "He that believeth on the Son [hath everlasting life] (Grk. echei zoen aionion -- present indicative; "to experience Full Communion with the Divine Creator for all of Eternity"): and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but [THE WRATH OF GOD] abideth on him." (John 3:36) "Of how much [SORER PUNISHMENT], suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath [TRODDEN UNDER FOOT] the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?" (Hebrews 10:29) The world is full of intractable men and women who pridefully and willfully rebel against the God of Scripture, and because of their hardened hearts, they stand condemned to Eternal Fire; their stubbornness will ultimately lead to an irrevocable denial of the sinfulness of their unregenerate hearts (cf. Ps. 17:10; Isa. 6:10; Jer. 5:23; Zech. 7:12; Rom. 2:5; Eph. 4:17-19; Heb. 3:7-9; 4:5-7; Rev. 9:20; 16:9-11). There is a greater condemnation for those who have "trodden under foot" the Son of God; this phrase was taken from a gesture used to express scorn and disdain in the Near East region during ancient times: its meaning was to "lift up one's foot" (cf. Ps. 41:9; 2 Kgs. 9:33; Isa. 14:19; Mic. 7:10; Zech. 10:5). To spurn the Goodness of our Creator who brought us into existence so that we might enjoy the True meaning of life to its fullest is to treat the precious and priceless Blood of the Lamb with utter contempt; in other words, these are those who value the shed Blood of Jesus Christ as unclean, and such people will receive a greater punishment in Hell and the Lake of Fire (Matt. 23:14; cf. Heb. 9:11-14; 10:26).

  18. STEVEN ANDERSON BANNED FROM YET ANOTHER COUNTRY (Friday Church News Notes, May 17, 2019, www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - Steven Anderson has been banned from yet another country. This time it is Ireland. Anderson was scheduled to preach in Dublin on May 26, but the Minister for Justice signed an exclusion order against him. This is the first time that someone has been banned under a 1999 immigration law that allows exclusion “in the interest of national security or public policy.” The decision followed a gay activist petition that received over 14,000 signatures. Anderson is targeted for his statements that homosexuals should be killed. After the mass shooting at a gay-friendly nightclub.. Read More View the full article
  19. Ahhh, that was so stupid of me! Thanks John, i'll be more careful Bless you all Totoo
  20. You may be looking at 1 Timothy 3. The assignment is for 2 Timothy 3 2 Timothy 3:10-17 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, 11 persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15 and that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
  21. Dear Alan, Once again, many thanks for your kindness. i've got a problem right from the very start, i hope it's a good thing. i have got, as it says, a King James Version of the Holy Bible right here on my desk. I purchased it online from a Chinese online store. It has been published by: Christian Art Publishers.2017. I have been using this since it arrived in the mail, and never doubted it. But now the first assignment according to the Bible Course is to study Tim: 3: 10 - 17. There is no Verse 17 in my Good Book and it ends in a rather long verse 16, compared it with other verses above it. Is there a misprint in the Bible Study course, or is my Bible faulty? How can one ever know if one's Bible is correct!? Thank you very much for your time, and may the Lord bless your hearts, Totoo PS: i must add, i just checked my PDF KJV of the Holy Bible, and just like my physical Bible, there is no Verse 17! So i gather there could be a mistype or misprint in this:
  22. Thanks a lot DaveW, i've already downloaded 'The Genesis to Revelation Bible Course' Alan suggested above and i've started reading. i will try to reach Brother Sargent's books in a bit. Thank you so much for your kind replies and time. Bless your hearts, Totoo
  23. I agree with the David Cloud recommendation. He has Pdf material available. However, most of Brother Sargent's material is also available as pdf. If you contact him direct and explain your situation I am sure he can help you out. Both of these men have good conservative Bible material.
  24. Thanks a lot Alan, i'll check them links out right away. Your kind help and assistance is much appreciated, heartily. Bless your hearts, Totoo
  25. Took me awhile to not act confrontational with them, as I have a fighter's nature. But by gaining a little confidence in them, I get them to listen to the Gospel better. (However, it takes the HOLY SPIRIT'S power to cause them to BELIEVE it!)
  26. As I've said before, all MAN-MADE rules of faith/worship should be ignored by all REAL Christians. Most Amish branches are chock-full of them, as are several Mennonite branches. A while back, some Mennonites asked me about IFB beliefs, & I told them that my particular IFB church, while not speaking for ALL IFB churches, accepts ONLY THE BIBLE as its SOLE authority on earth in all matters of faith/worship, & believes nor follows ANY MAN-MADE RULES of faith/worship. One asked me "why?" & I replied, "Why NOT? Does any MAN actually speak for GOD?" They asked no more questions.
  27. Molly's cancer is now in her lymph nodes. She is facing several tests and surgeries. Added to the burden of her health is the financial aspect. And, of course, her family. Both her son and her husband are pretty well (understandably!) upset. She asked me to thank those who are praying.
  28. Brother David Cloud has a number of free, PDF, e-books, on different subjects, that are a help in Christian growth, Bible Study, and on many issues affecting the Christian realm. Here is the link to his fee e-books: https://www.wayoflife.org/free_ebooks/ Among other fine materials, Brother David Cloud has a free, PDF, "From Genesis to Revelation Bible Study Course," published in 1921 by Brother Groom. Here is the link: https://www.wayoflife.org/free_ebooks/genesis_to_revelation.php
  29. Excellent article, with many practical examples, on how to develop a personal habit of Bible reading and study.
