  1. Pastor Charles Lawson teaches the "Ruin-Reconstruction" Gap theory. That is a "theory that there is a gap between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2. This means that there was a pre-adamic race before the re-creation of the earth and death before the fall of Adam. This contradicts Romans 5:12.
  2. Hi Bob, I've been following The Berean Call Ministry (started by the late Dave Hunt and T. A. McMahon) for more than a decade. I livestream their conferences, but I have listened to only one (T. A. McMahon speaking on The Perfect Storm, Part 1) message of the present conference. As with any ministry, we need to be biblical Bereans (Acts 17:11).....checking out what they teach and preach with Scripture.
  3. For hundreds of years, the Roman Catholic Church blamed the Jews for "killing" Christ and have called Jews "Christ killers"....I know this from personal experience. An ethnic Jew is a physical descendant of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. My ethnicity is Jewish. My grandparents were Ashkenazi Orthodox Jews from Eastern Europe (Lithuania and Russia) and immigrated to the United States at the end of the 19th century. Yes, the Jewish people were scattered throughout the world in 70AD, but they are returning to Israel (in unbelief)---fulfilling the Biblical prophecy of Ezekiel 37 (dry bones prophecy). The answer is no....everyone does not have a bit of "Jew" (whatever you mean by that) in them. There are 3 classes of peoples (1 race) living on this earth, the Jew, the Gentile, and the Church of God, which is composed of saved Jews and Gentiles (1 Corinthians 10:32). Zionist ideology????? I am also a Christian Zionist. Zionism is simply the belief that the Jewish people have a right to a homeland in the biblically promised land of Israel. It is no more, and no less. Bible believing Christians, who are dispensational in their understanding of Scriptures, have always believed in God’s promise of the restoration of the Jewish people back to the land of Israel. Irregardless of the fact that Pontius Pilate "washed his hands", it was the Romans who physically nailed Christ to the Cross. Did you ever stop and think that using such a statement like "the Jews killed Christ" or Jews are "Christ killers" just might prevent a lost Jewish soul from listening to the Gospel? Since you are very much into soul winning, which is great....this might be something for soul winners to think about. BTW, the world (mankind) hates Christ...not just the Jews. Back to the topic of this thread....repentance.
  4. Actually the Romans killed Christ. The Jewish leaders handed Christ over to the Romans to be crucified. Crucifixion was the means of capital punishment which the Romans employed. Christ died for the entire world. (John 3:16). Our sin put Christ on the cross. Blaming the Jews for killing Christ is pretty much a Roman Catholic statement. I am an ethnic Jew and a born again Christian and I remember when our family was called "Christ Killers" (and other derogatory statements that Jews were called) until I graduated High School in 1961. Yes, you are correct about this being another subject. Back to the topic of Repentance. Repentance defined by David Cloud and John R. Rice. (Way of Life Encyclopedia: Repentance) Bible repentance means a turning to God and a change of mind toward God that results in a change of life (Mt 3:1-2; Lu 5:32; 13:1-3; 18:13; Ac 2:38; 5:31; 17:30; 20:21; 26:20; 2Pe 3:9). (David Cloud) "To repent literally means to have a change of mind or spirit toward God and toward sin. It means to turn from your sins, earnestly, with all your heart, and trust in Jesus Christ to save you. You can see, then, how the man who believes in Christ repents and the man who repents believes in Christ. The jailer repented when he turned from sin to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ" (John R. Rice, What Must I Do to Be Saved?).
  5. According to Genesis 1, evening was the beginning of the day. Genesis 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. Genesis 1:8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. Genesis 1:13 And the evening and the morning were the third day. Genesis 1:19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. Genesis 1:23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. Genesis 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
  6. Exodus 16:16 This is the thing which the LORD hath commanded, Gather of it every man according to his eating, an omer for every man, according to the number of your persons; take ye every man for them which are in his tents.

    Believers and the Law

    I would think that the Adamic covenant would involve blood. After the fall (after Adam ate of the forbidden fruit), didn't God provide a "covering" for Adam and Eve's nakedness? An animal (which might have been a lamb/sheep) had to be killed to provide that "covering"? Adam and Eve tried to cover their "nakedness" with fig leaves (works), but God provided His covering (coats of skins): Genesis 3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. Genesis 3:21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.

    Believers and the Law

    This is an excellent Bible study on the Eight Covenants of the Bible by Dr. Arnold G. Fruchtenbaum, who is a Jewish believer in Jesus Christ. The Eight Covenants of the Bible by Dr. Arnold G. Fruchtenbaum http://www.messianicassociation.org/ezine17-af.covenants.htm (Part 1): The Edenic, Adamic, Noahic, and Abrahamic Covenants http://www.messianicassociation.org/ezine18-af.covenants.htm (Part 2): The Mosaic Covenant http://www.messianicassociation.org/ezine19-af.covenants.htm (Part 3): The Land (Palestinian), Davidic, and New Covenants Here’s the Conclusion of all three parts: CONCLUSION All spiritual blessings are for believers in the Messiah, whether they are Jews or Gentiles. And through His death on the cross for their sins, believers reap spiritual benefits that would never be theirs otherwise. The eight covenants of the Bible are very explicit in their provisions and are valuable for a proper understanding of Scripture. *********************************** I need to add a short disclaimer to Part 1 concerning Dr. Fruchtenbaum's teaching on the Edenic and Adamic Covenant. I do not agree with him concerning his use of Ezekiel 28:11-19 and the fall of Satan. Also, I do not agree with his teaching on Genesis 3:15 where he says: “The prophecy of Genesis 3:15 led to the events of Genesis 6:1-4 when Satan tried to corrupt the seed of the woman and will lead to the future supernatural conception of the Antichrist.”
  9. Exodus 13:6 Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to the LORD.
  10. Exodus 13:3 And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten.
  11. Exodus 12:18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.
  12. 1Timothy115, Is a "cheerful non-giver" viewed the same as a "non-cheerful giver"? I really don't understand the point of your OP question. Are those who do not give, for whatever reason (that reason is between that person and God), supposed to feel guilty about it? All Biblical giving comes from a cheerful heart. A person who simply gives "out of duty, obligation, or coercion" is not a cheerful giver. If one is simply giving "out of duty, obligation, or coercion"....or "giving to receive something in return", then that person is better off not giving anything at all. All that type of non-cheerful giving is "wood, hay and stubble" at the judgment seat of Christ....it will be burned up. Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. 1 Timothy 6:17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; 1 Timothy 6:18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; 1 Timothy 6:19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life. In response to your last question....you have been a member of this forum long enough to know the answer to that question.

  14. Genesis 49:14 Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdens:
  15. Bro. Matt, The date on the "New Content" page is incorrect. It's one day earlier than it actually is. The date today is Saturday, March 28th, 2015. The date on the "New Content" page says today's date is March 27th. It's been one day off for the last two weeks.
  16. Thanks Bro. Matt! I was beginning to wonder if I had something wrong with my new Windows 8 system.
  17. Since I can't edit my previous post, I will add that I am using the latest version of Mozilla Firefox (36.0.1)
  18. My notifications are not loading at all. How do I eliminate the number in the red circle above the "bell" notification thingy? If I can't see my notifications, there is no point for me to continually see the number of notifications.
  19. Thanks Bro Matt. I was getting all kinds of error messages when I tried to sign back in.
  20. Bro. Matt..... Is this a new format or a new design for this forum?
  21. Genesis 44:6 And he overtook them, and he spake unto them these same words.
