  1. There's quite a bit of evidence that the earth's axis of rotation was once different from what it now is, & the North Pole was in Greenland. Just take a globe loose from its bracket & rotate it with the "top" of its axis in central Greenland & see how much closer to that "North Pole" that North America is, & how much further from it Siberia is. Also, note how much closer to the South Pole that Africa is. There's little doubt that huge natural disasters have hit the whole planet in ancient times. For instance, many of the natural events of the plagues of Egypt & the Exodus were worldwide. The last one apparently was in Hezekiah's day in the 700s BC when earth's rotation was temporarily disrupted so the sun appeared to move retrograde as per 2 Kings 20:11. This phenomenom was observed worldwide, along with earthquakes & volcanic activity.
  2. The "seat of the beast" will be in Jerusalem or thereabouts, or maybe Rome. I believe that, as the great trib progresses, smoke & dust from the other catastrophes will block out most natural light from the sun & moon, fulfilling Joel's prophecy of the "blood moon". (It won't be a lunar eclipse, all of which are predicted far in advance.) ( I have theorized about the cause of the natural disasters of the trib, which, of course, will be under God's control, but that's for other discussions.) I believe this darkness will be worldwide, and will cause worldwide crop failures, as well as likely killing everyone with COPD or other respiratory probs, but will only be part of the series of disasters which will come in rapid order, as outlined in the Revelation. And Jesus will cut them short just before His return before all flesh can perish.
  3. Just pick up any encyclopedia or world history work and see if the occurrence of any of those events in in it !
  4. Well, actually, angels don't need wings. When Jesus returned to heaven after His resurrection, He simply rose by His own power. He didn't use any vehicle. As for Elijah, God made a special vehicle for him, to present a spectacular departure for Elisha to see & write about. (A little aside: I lean toward believing that Enoch & Elijah will be the 2 special witnesses of the Revelation, as they have never died, & thus will be killed to fulfill God's decree that it's appointed for all people to die once, with the only exceptons being the saints that will be raptured.)
  5. We have one who moved here from Texas & had left IFB & KJVO because of Anderson. He & his family were glad to find an IFB congregation that didn't subscribe to Anderson's horse feathers.
  6. 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!)
  7. 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.
  8. To me, "apostate" means rejecting a religious system, and Muslims certainly reject Christianity, some of them to the point of murdering Christians for being Christians. I believe most Muslims know the Gospel exists, but they don't believe a word of it.
  9. there are several branches of Mennonites as well. Some are as apostate as Muslims, but the ones around here that I've spoken with seem to believe the Gospel and in salvation by faith. They're named after Menno Simons (1492-1561) of Friesland, now part of The Netherlands, a RCC priest who became an Anabaptist. Most believe in salvation thru Jesus, the Bible's authority, adult baptism, and the Holy Trinity. They correctly believe that LGBTQ people can be saved if one renounced that lifestyle as part of repentance. (But unfortunately, some Mennonite pastors conduct LBGTQ weddings!) And, they do have more than one openly-gay pastor. (Depends upon the branch. Most do not accept this.) Their heterodox beliefs & practices include no military service nor fighting, period, no holding political office nor voting, & swearing of oaths, (but never deliberately lying in the slightest). Some branches dress as Amish do, as well as often using horse-drawn buggies (but not all the time), which often gets them confused with Amish. If one is considering becoming a Mennonite, I strongly recommend one to check out the beliefs & practices of the group they're considering. Remember, IT'S CERTAINLY NOT SINFUL TO BE IN THE MILITARY, NOR TO DEFEND ONE'S FAMILY, PROPERTY, OR SELF! Nor is it sinful to vote or hold political office. Those are MAN-MADE rules & should be disregarded by all Christians.
  10. There are a number of Amish in my 'hood. they are the ones who told me of their beliefs about salvation. From what I gather, their brand of salvation is entirely works-based. To their credit, they've never tried to "convert" anyone around here to their way, but they really need to hear the TRUE Gospel. What they have now is based upon the beliefs & theories of their founder, Jakob Amman, from whom they derive their name. Far as I'm concerned, they're not some kind of "super-Christian", but are just another quasi/pseudo-Christian cult.
  11. I know that some branches of Amish don't believe one is saved while here on earth, but if one lives the Amish lifestyle faithfully enough, he/she MIGHT be saved by Jesus after death. I'm wondering if there are any actual Amish who believe the TRUE GOSPEL of Jesus? (I know some Mennonites do.) Also, there's NO Scriptural support for living primitively. After all, God said that in the end times, knowledge shall increase. So, evidently, the Amish don't believe a lot of the Bibles they use, generally the German Martin Luther version, or the KJV and NIV in English. All those versions have the TRUE Gospel in them.
  12. 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.
  13. We see, in the fulfillment of parts of Isaiah 19 that "the land of Judah" became a terror to the Egyptians. Now, since God finished giving His word to man before Hadrian kicked the Jews outta their land, the name "Palestine" doesn't appear in Scripture. Did a little digging on the name "Palestine". It comes from the Egyptian "peleset", C. 1150 BC, a name given to the area that included Philistia after those people had migrated from Caphtor. The Arabs called the area "Filastin". The Greex began calling the area "Palestaena" & the Romans got "Palestina" from that. This included the Philistines, but not ONLY them. There were Bedouins & other Ishmaelites among them. So, I was a little wrong. After the Neo-Assyrian empire conquered the Philistines, they mixed with those other people & lost their national ID, fulfilling the prophecy they'd vanish. But their posterity remains among the peoples of the land who call themselves "Palestinians" today. I believe that's why God mentioned them to Zechariah, their DNA is still present in many of today's Pals, including those who've betrayed their people to the Jews, & who will do so in the future, & will be honored by the Jews as God told Zechariah.
  14. First actual miracle I saw was God's keeping my wife alive & healing her a great deal. Late in 2000, she was the aide on a schoolbus that left the road & flipped completely over. She was slammed into the ceiling so hard that the steel was buckled & partially torn loose from its braces. Most of her ribs were broken, both scapulae, both clavicles, & 1 humerus. Both her lungs were punctured her liver was lacerated & her spleen ruptured. First part of the miracle was her spleen bled in such a way that the blood dammed up & stopped the bleeding from both her spleen & liver. Second part was that she was still able to get oxygen in both punctured lungs while unconscious. Third was the fact she survived at all! Fourth was that , while knocked out, her head, spine, & lower extremities were uninjured & she had no external injury. Fifth was that she survived the large amount of internal dead tissue from her injuries, & survived her spleen removal (very small incision by Da Vinci machine), the removal of the blood she'd lost(When one bleeds internally, that blood soon dies from lack of 02). She was on life support for over a month; after 9 days, her condition improved slightly, but she was kept fully sedated for over 2 months. When she was taken slowly off sedation & weaned from the respirator(she had a trach tube installed), HER MIND WAS COMPLETELY INTACT! PRAISE THE LORD! She then recovered over a 4-month period so she was left only with COPD, can't turn her head too far right, not raise her R arm above the shoulder, & has intermittent aches & pains. (She won't take any painkiller stronger than acetominophen.) She went back to work, on light duty, & has been working ever since. (She was 51 at time of accident; she's now 70 & going strong!) THIS WAS ALL A MIRACLE OF GOD'S, SEEN BY ME & SEVERAL OTHERS, LIVED BY HER! THANK YOU, ALMIGHTY GOD ! ! The other miracle was at the steel mill where I work. (I'm now a janitor thanx to my 42 years' seniority) Nine years ago, a co-worker, a devout Baptist Christian, collapsed after egressing from an overhead crane he ran. First part of the miracle: he collapsed in front of his boss, who caught him & kept his head from striking the concrete floor. Next, that boss hollered into the nearby control room where I worked, knowing I was a former navy corpsman & paramedic. I immediately found he was in cardiac arrest & hollered at someone to summon help. Two men arrived who also knew CPR. As I was growing tired, I had one of them take over compressions while I breathed him. To keep the story short, others watched for the paramedics to arrive & guided them thru the plant to us, where they used their advanced equipment & defibrillated him twice before transporting him to the ER. I didn't think he'd live, but enroute his heart began to function & he went on to make a full recovery, returning to work in 6 weeks! All credit goes to GOD, as, despite what you see on TV, most people who go down with cardiac arrest don't survive. The most-efficient CPR only circulates 35% of the blood a normal heart beat does, & often the underlying cause of the cardiac arrest is too severe to recover from. The miracle was so profound because we gave CPR for nearly 15 minutes without any emergency equipment & he still lived! (I collapsed with hyperventilation from breathing him when the medix arrived, but I was OK.) AGAIN, THANK YOU, ALMIGHTY GOD, FOR YOUR MIRACLES AND HEALING GRACE! WE CANNOT PRAISE YOU ENOUGH FOR THESE TWO MIRACLES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I bear record that I saw them both, & have no doubt they were miracles ! ! Anyone else seen a miracle(s) ?
