    Any Born Again Jews Here?

    Romans 11:25-27 is the fulfillment of the New Covenant for the nation of Israel (Jeremiah 31:31-34). Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Jeremiah 31:32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: Jeremiah 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. Jeremiah 31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. Temporarily the nation Israel has been set aside in the purposes of God. Today He is creating a special body of saved people composed both of Jews and Gentiles (Acts 15:14-16; Ephesians 3). After this present work is accomplished, God will again resume His purposes with the nation Israel and will fulfill all the Old Testament promises and prophecies concerning them (Romans 11:25-27). Romans 11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. Romans 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: Romans 11:27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

    Well, the auditor came today (Christmas Eve) to see the damage from the refrigerator's water line, and he was VERY generous! He printed us a check that will definitely take care of everything. The Lord has turned this problem into a great blessing! What a God we serve! Edited to add... I don't know if this is normal, but our insurance company is even going to pay for the extra electricity used by the two dehumidifiers and fan.

    Yes, there are some here. Under the New Covenant there is no "chosen people" as previously as the doors of salvation are open to all. Now, all who are in Christ are a "chosen generation, a royal priesthood...", see 1 Peter 2:9.

    John81, I didn't really mean moral character, more like guts. Meaning, he realized that him resigning was the best thing for the country, not to drag it out any longer than it already had been. Unlike Clinton, his allegations, trials, etc. took his focus off the country for a long time, but even after all he put the country through, he was still re-elected. But the average low information voter (as Rush describes them) didn't understand what he had actually done and believed he was in trouble for the actual acts themselves. They don't even realize he was impeached either because he didn't resign.

    Your right, smaller amounts do not make the big news, not even in small towns. There's many forms of gambling yet nowadays even church people see's no wrong with it. Lust for money blinds.

    Just checking, if there is none, then why not, and how can they be the chosen ones, if they are not born again like we are. I would have been a very proud Puerto Rican posting here, if Jesus came to us frist, and if we were the chosen ones. Can you see what I am trying to say here? Thanks for trying. Merry Christmas, from a Jew, I mean a Puerto Rican.

    I was bar-mitzvahed so I guess I count as an 'ethnic' born again jew (my mothers parents saw to that) ... even though my mother and father were atheist/agnostic as I was growing up.

    Exactly, John. We are engaged in spiritual warfare, and our enemy in the Devil. As you said, this earth is not our home. We are only sojourners passing by, on our way, to our Heavenly kingdom.

    Someone mentioned somewhere that the guy who did the bogus sign language at Mandela's funeral was maybe signing in tongues! After all, he asid he was experienceing visons-might as well work for him the same way it does for the charismatics, right?

    What Version Internet Explorer?

    I have not used Firefox in a long while. Although a few weeks back I did try it. i could not get the spell check to work, & I hit many of the wrong keys & I'm in bad need of spell check, so i ditched it & went back to Chrome. At that same time I tried IE, I had trouble with the copy & paste & finally got that working yet to me its much slower than Chrome, plus everything seems to work better on Chrome. Each browser has a place on it so that you can make it your default browser. How to make Firefox your default browser How to make IE your default browser How to make chrome your default browser There is another way to do this yet this is the easiest way. Hope this helps.

    It's a much better way of seeing things when we look at it from God's perspective. I remember all the frustration of those years trying to tackle matters in our own strength, in the worlds ways. God calls us to tend to the spiritual matters and informs us that our warfare is spiritual. We learn that our battles aren't with rotten leaders, corrupt political parties, the annoying guy at work, the obnoxious lady at the diner, but rather with the Enemy.

    So, I wonder if laws against theft violate the rights of thieves. Or laws against pedophilia violate the rights of pedophiles? Where will the madness end?

    That's pretty accurate. I might only add that the Stupid Party is complicit in the evil. Neither the Dems nor the Repubs want anything other than the way things are going. Neither Party wants, or will tolerate, a leading candidate who won't keep things going as they are. The Dems took out Traficant, the Repubs have taken out Buchanan and Paul. Both Parties would rather lose than see an independent minded candidate of their own Party win. Had Republicans truly been interested in doing what is right, they could have done so during the time President Bush was in the White House and the Republicans controlled congress for 6 of those years. One can't blame "the war on terror" for nothing getting done. Historically presidents have used their wartime popularity and Party control to accomplish what they really want to get done on the domestic front. Republican President Bush and the Republican congress didn't even try. Praise God this is not my home and the Lord's will shall be done!

    I agree. Something about Mr. Clinton, he can stand & talk to people never saying nothing but the majority of people will fall in love with him. he did it as governor of this state, them did it as president, while bring disgrace on both. I just hope his wife never becomes president.

    See end of report to Print or ShareUpdated December 24, 2013 (first published December 22, 2001) (David Cloud, Fundamental Baptist Information Service, P.O. Box 610368, Port Huron, MI 48061, 866-295-4143, fbns@wayoflife.org) - I want to take this occasion to bid each of our subscribers a blessed holiday season and a fruitful New Year in God’s will. If we can be of any help to you in this coming year, don’t hesitate to write. We are very busy, but we try to answer as many e-mails and letters as possible. You are always welcome to write. Even with the deluge of mail I receive, I still answer probably 75% of it. It seems that each year about this time some people write to ask about my views on Christmas. The subject of Christmas seems to stir up as many strong passions as politics! Some of the angriest, most ungracious mail I have ever received (and that is saying something) has been from people rebuking me for having anything positive whatsoever to say about Christmas. When I announced recently that the national Christian ladies on the mission field in South Asia had some handmade Christmas cards for sale, you should have seen the comments. I was called ignorant, hypocritical, double minded, and other such things! One most gracious Christian gentleman wrote: “Take me off your list.... I am an ex-Catholic and my wife is also -- from the Philippines! Doubtless you are too stupid to know that worshiping God with Pagan, Dates, Symbols and Rituals does NOT please Him! We stopped 42 years ago - as soon as someone showed us, as Baptists, that it was wrong! How can you miss the encyclopedias, dictionaries, Internet and even God's word - Ex. 32-33, 1 Co. 10:1-5, Jer. 10:1-5 unless you are either not saved or wilfully disobedient! No need to answer unless you want to acknowledge just how stupid you really are!” It is obvious that this is a deeply spiritual man who should be emulated, and I would guess that his spiritual influence is vast. Consider a couple more samples: “I read of your complete hatred of the evils of Roman Catholicism -- but you're surprisingly 'silent' when it comes to the real 'demon' in the room--CHRISTMAS. How you can rant against the 'Charismatics'--but not so much a whimper against the abomination of the filthy dreamers who continue to push this 'garbage' of Jesus' birthday on Dec. 25--as being 'truth'! At least when those Charismatics are Speaking in 'gibberish' -- they aren't singing -- "Oh Holy Night--when Christ was born!"  Or those silly songs about Away in a Manger--pure speculation and myths! So much for your American styled "Christianity"--full of myths and babblings about nothing--every time you sing. Christmas songs!!  The whole Christmas story is purely wives' tales!  But who cares?  Right?” View the full article

    I am all for the death penalty in cases like this. A number of years ago, our family lost a member who was a police officer under similar circumstances. The loss is still felt.

    CNN, Gallup: Support for Obamacare Plunges to Record Lows “Democratic senators in red and purple states are going to have a tough time defending their vote for a health-care law that wasn’t ready for prime time,” writes National Review columnist Matt Kibbe, referring to the law’s embarrassing rollout that was plagued with persistent technical and public relations issues. New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat, is already the target of a biting television spot linking her to the president and hammering her decision to vote for the law. Persistent reports suggest that former Sen. Scott Brown is preparing a challenge based in part over her weakness on Obamacare. Meanwhile, a new CNN/ORC survey finds that support for the healthcare law has plummeted to a record low, with most Americans predicting skyrocketing costs for medical care, and a third don’t believe they will be able to keep their doctor. In that poll, CNN reports, support for the law is down five points in less than a month, to just 35 percent of those questioned. Opposition for Obamacare is up four points from November, to 62 percent, according to CNN. How bad is it? “Even Democrats recognize the negative issues associated with the new healthcare law and its implementation,” Gallup states. Most of the newest opposition comes from women, traditionally a core constituency for the president. Sixty percent of women polled do not like the law. For Full Story

    Again, we don't play the lottery.....but I know that we have one or two that probably tithe/give off stock market money. Stocks are sort of an investment but it can also be a gamble.

    Lottery In The Church = Gambling

    If someone gives ill gotten gains in their church offering, and the church doesn't know about it, then their conscience is clear. If someone announces they won five thousand dollars and say they are giving a thousand to the church, then they are aware of the source of the money and must make that decision of whether to stand upon avoiding even the appearance of evil, or deciding they want the money so they'll take it anyway.

    Ifb Is A Cult?

    We have some here that do not like the name Baptist, & perhaps they frown on people who use it. The people called Baptist has a very rich history, many of them died for the same beliefs we teach today & they still get put down even today, sometimes even persecuted. And to think this is a Baptist forum, entitled "Online Baptist An Independent Baptist Community Since 2002!" Maybe they want Brother Matt to take Baptist out of its name calling it "Online An Independent Community Since 2002!" That way when someone see's it they want think of Jesus or a Christian Community. I'm a Baptist by choice.

    Church is were people that have Christian to sell flock to hoping to sell their wares. It kind of like a forum on the internet you have a captive audience to sell your wares to so the sellers try to get their post full of spam posted, some sneak it in though their signature. Its amazing at the number of people that live high off the hog using God to make money to do so.

    Remember both Nixon and Clinton were impeached. Only Nixon had enough character to resign. Different times. Crimes were crimes. Jump to Clinton, no character, times now, crimes only covered up and/or denied.

    last 2 weeks of the month are the hardest. Barely any food, no money or food stamps to get more. Counting squares on the toilet paper to make it last til the 3rd of the month. Hoping somebody puts $20 in a Christmas card. I make my own laundry detergent, softener and cleaning supplies mostly to save that little bit helps but not much. But my needs are always met somehow.

    I disagree to many people are having to pay a much higher price for their health insurance, such as my brother-in-law, $4,800.00 more dollars per year, & that's affecting both democrats & republicans pocketbooks, & people whether democrat or republican do not forget anyone getting in their pocketbooks. And wait a little bit, it will probably jump even higher. So this will not be forgotten. Even democrats congressmen are worried about their reelection that's coming up.

    I guess I realized that not everything we experience is from God. So rather than base my belief on that experience, I put my belief in what the Bible says about it.
