  1. I'm not sure which "one verse" you're speaking about. I quoted several verses that all attest to the fact that no man knows when Christ will return. We can know the season of his return, but we can't know the day of his return. The Lord was very specific in this regard. You, I, nor anyone else knows (or can know) the date of his return. No amount of mathematics, comparing the Israel feasts with events, nor any other way of determining his return will matter. We don't know. We can't know. We won't know...even those who are here and alive during the Tribulation period won't know...he will come at a time that they think not. I adjure you to repent of setting any dates. The Lord Jesus Christ has said that no man knows...no man.
  2. Again, with respect... Do the words of the Lord Jesus Christ (regarding his second coming) have no bearing on the fact that you have set a date of August 10, 2025 for his return? Matthew 24:3, 36, and 42 3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. _______________________________________________________________________________________________ Matthew 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. _______________________________________________________________________________________________ Mark 13:4, 33, and 35-37 4 Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled? 33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: 36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch. (Why should we watch (as commanded by Jesus) if we know when he will return? _______________________________________________________________________________________________ Luke 12:40 40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
  3. Sir, I will try to say this as respectfully as possible. While I realize the amount of effort and study that you put into figuring out your timeline...on this site, you won't find anyone who accepts or believes in date-setting. You asked if we saw a mistake mathematically or numerically. I haven't checked your math, but in my view, there are many numerical mistakes; which are, the dates. We believe setting dates to be a mistake...especially the day of the Lord's return. The Lord Jesus Christ himself said no man knows that date.

    Salvation After Rapture

    Yes. I hate to say it, but here goes... Will doesn't mean will in that verse; rather, will means will.

    Reconciling our understanding of the word Baptism

    Sorry. I thought that I answered in an explanatory fashion. I'll try to explain my thoughts and belief better...maybe. There are several different baptisms mentioned in scripture...the Israelites were baptized unto Moses, John's baptisms were baptisms of repentance, the Lord was baptized to fufill all righteousness, baptism by the spirit into the body, believer's water baptism...and more...so it's apparent (to me) that the verse in question isn't inferring that there is only one baptism and no others; rather, it's referring to only one particular baptism that serves one particular purpose. My belief (as I mentioned earlier) is that it's the baptism of the believer...performed by the Holy Spirit...which places the believer into the body of Christ. That baptism can only be performed one time, and that one-time baptism is the only baptism that serves that one particular purpose. I believe that all of the "one" elements mentioned in Ephesians 4:4-6 are spiritual; therefore, the "one baptism" is too. (1 Corinthians 12:13) For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whetherwe be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

    Reconciling our understanding of the word Baptism

    Wow! There's a lot of ads on here if you dont have an adblocker enabled! 😄 I've watched from afar during the recent "universal church" discussion...and I chose to remain silent on that thread. I've watched this thread with anticipation, but no one has replied; therefore, I will. As usual, I don't claim to be right or all-knowing, so if I'm wrong, please forgive me Lord (and all my brethren here). One baptism...what is it? Is it the literal baptism; in which, a believer is baptized in water...or is it the spiritual baptism that one receives upon being saved? As I look at the entire context of the scripture in question, I am faced with those two choices. As a side note, in God's word, there are actually more than the three baptisms mentioned by Jordan in the other thread. As I look at the entire scripture in question, one thing stands out to me; which is, the "items" mentioned all have to do with the spiritual rather than the physical. The first three verses of Ephesians 4 lead up to "the Spirit". Therefore, as I look at the verses (in question) which follow, and as I look at whether the other "items" are physical here on earth or spiritual, I can only ascertain that the "one baptism" is the spiritual baptism that all believers receive upon salvation. One body: spiritual One Spirit: spiritual One hope of your calling: spiritual One Lord: spiritual. One faith: spiritual One baptism: ??? One God and Father of all: spiritual For example: some churches "require" an additional physical water baptism (of a member) in order to join their church...if they were former members of another church and/or denomination. That's not "one baptism". However, if that individual was saved, they were baptized by the spirit into the body of Christ. Nothing can change that, and that was "one baptism".

    ...and I'll say it again... I don't consider nor call myself a... "Dispensationalist".

    Yes, I quoted you without quoting you...just so you'd notice it. You still haven't read Deuteronomy 10, have you? Or...you've read it, and you haven't yet found a way to "wrest the scripture". I learned long ago to show grace when it's due. I started off with grace with you...but I was quickly shown that with you sir, it's not due. You have been given more than the biblical two admonitions (no, I won't give you chapter and verse...look it up for yourself). As far as I'm concerned, and I'm sad to say it, you are a heretic. So go ahead and tell others (within your belief system) how "No Nicolaitans" treated you wrongly and can't discern scripture aright. Give them the link here so they can see it. One day, we will BOTH have to give an account for what we've done and said here. I've taken God at his word without redefining what he plainly said or jumping through hoops to "explain" what he meant when he supposedly didn't say what he meant. Have you? Go ahead and boast against the branches if you dare...I'll rest in the truth of God's word...which will stand forever... If you ever reach the place; in which, you realize that you could be wrong, I will gladly and lovingly try to help you. I hope and pray that you will.

    Why do you only quote partials of verses? Let's look at all of it...please note that verses 22-24 is one sentence. 22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: 23 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, 24 Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? 25 As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. 26 And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God. 27 Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: 28 For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth. 29 And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha. In verse 26, please tell me according to the context... 1. Where was "the place"? 2. Who were the "them"? 3. Who were the "Ye"? 4. Who were the "they"? Then look at verse 27, and you'll see that Isaiah ALSO cried concerning who? That little word "also" continues a thought. Who is the thought about? ISRAEL. Hmmm...might want to reconsider the true meaning... Original: משׁבה משׁוּבה Transliteration: meshûbâh meshûbâh Phonetic: mesh-oo-baw' Definition: turning away, turning back, apostasy, backsliding Origin: from H7725 Part(s) of speech: Noun Feminine Strong's Definition: FromH7725; apostasy: -backsliding, turning away. Backsliding is an old testament word only, and it means much more than your definition...or the commonly accepted definition. What does the new testament say about those who "turn away"? That's your new testament "backslider"...

    Brother D, To further clarify myself, and I know that others here may not agree with me on this...which may cause some raised eyebrows when they read this, but I DO NOT believe that the Hosea reference found in Romans 9 is meant to be interpreted as Christians being God's people. It's talking about the people to whom it was said about in Hosea...Israel. The context of who he is talking about is clear to me. Now...why is Israel still called "his people" in Romans 11:1-2? This is after Christ had died, was buried, and risen from the dead. This was after Christianity had started, yet Israel is still called "his people". Speaking of Romans 11, you may want to read the entire chapter when you look those verses up, because there seems to be a lot of "boasting against the branches" coming from you. Take heed...

    Not sure about the 80 years... 6th year of Darius' reign... 7th year of Artaxerxes' reign... ...makes sense to me.
