  1. I can see that you and I disagree. I agree with part of you definition. Endure means to suffer; to last, or remain. So...the Lord is referring to those who last (or remain) through the suffering of the Tribulation period. In other words...those who physically survive it. Who are "those" people? Well, according to the context of the verse of scripture in question (taking into account the surrounding verses)...it's talking about the remnant of the nation of Israel. After all, just a few verses later, the Lord said to pray ye that your flight be not in the winter; neither on the sabbath day. Why would a Gentile believer be concerned over whether they had to flee on the sabbath? Now... What does "saved" mean? In God's word, do the words "save" or "saved" always refer to spiritual salvation? Let's look... There are many more, but that's a good verse to end this on...that we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us: The verse in question is referring to the remnant of the Jews who will survive until the end of Tribulation period (those who endure), and as the book of Zechariah points out, they will be saved from sure and certain destruction when the Lord returns at the end of the Tribulation period. Today, when we think of the words "save" or "saved", our mind immediately goes to the thought of spiritual salvation; however, that's not what it's always referring to. It can also mean "physical" salvation from harm. It can also mean "except"...such as... When comparing scripture with scripture, the verse in question is talking about those (of the nation of Israel) who have lasted (endured) throughout the sufferings of the Tribulation period. Don't forget, many of them will flee to the mountains and be cared for...they won't "have to stay strong through the hour of temptation". Those Jews (who last...or endure...until the end will be physically saved from sure destruction when the Lord Jesus Christ returns in all of his glory and destroys those who would destroy them.
  2. I would love to come to Australia and have the opportunity to serve the Lord...that's one of my personal dreams! By the way...I already have personal and first-hand knowledge of Emus (long story)! However, my wife is afraid that one of those evil Australian spiders will bite her (or one of us)...so she would rather us move to Florida...where alligators and boa constrictors help themselves to people's backyards and swimming pools.
  3. HI Tom. Thank you for answering. If I may ask (in regard to the same verse), what does "saved" mean?
  4. Folks, let's not forget that Totoosart is in China with no church to attend. Let's not forget his nationality. Let's not forget that he's doing the best that he can under those circumstances. He has reached out for help here time and time again. When I read some of the responses to him, it broke my heart. Like him, I read them as attacks on him instead of trying to help him. I don't know him personally, nor do I know his heart...nor do I agree with his reasoning regarding Satan. However, none of us knew it all when we were first saved. I know that I didn't. Let's not be so quick to attack. Jordan, is that how you responded to the Muslims in Africa? I watched your video. I don't think they would have been so welcoming to you had you responded to them like you have here. How about helping him instead of attacking him when he doesn't respond perfectly the first time or two. Just my two cents for what it's worth...which isn't much.
  5. I looked up the biblical qualifications and requirements of a pastor's wife... Hmmmm...Wait... I thought it said something about being the piano player, secretary, phoster club director, nursery director, or something like that. It's got to be in there somewhere... Hahaha! Hope and pray your wife isn't too stressed over it all.
  6. The heresy never ends here...let's set things aright. A slice of red, white, or yellow onion dabbed into a small bit of salt. Mmmmmmm... Wonderful as a side dish with beef and beans (or greens). ...and don't get me started on those heathen Vidalia onions...
  7. If anyone here in the US has never tried Vegemite, I would like to encourage you to do so. Just as advertised above about "vitality"...one bite, and you'll be revitalized for sure! Think of it as peanut butter with a punch!
  8. no, No, NO! It's y'all. Well...actually...the proper pronunciation in my area is yaw. So you should have said, "Yaw're weird." Hmmm...you might be on to something.
  9. I live in Georgia, and I've never heard of this abomination! Surely this is the work of Satan and his minions...
  10. Back to the topic... These foods do not belong together... Vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup ...so if anyone needs to get rid of them, send them to me, and I'll take care of them for you.
  11. Hebrew National for the win! There are no better! Thank you HC! It's nice to have someone BUTTER me up instead of trying to EGG me into a sustenance battle. I RELISH that, so thank you!
  12. Gregg, the examples that you've given had to do with earthly/physical happenings. Salvation is spiritual. Man can do nothing of his own merit or works to earn salvation, nor can his merits or works cause him to remain saved or cause the loss of salvation. His merits and works can make his relationship with God stronger, or his merits and works can break his fellowship with God...but not his relationship with God. The word "saved" is an interesting word...it is a past-tense verb that defines past, present, and future happenings... I was "saved" many years ago. I am "saved" today. I will be "saved" in the future. No man can pluck us from his hand...and "no man" includes our self. Christ said that if any man will come to him, he will not cast them out. To say that we can lose salvation is to say that Christ is a sinner. Lying is a sin.
  13. BALONEY! Please allow me to LEEK a little iinformation for you. The last THYME that I MUSTARD enough energy to KETCHUP on important things in life, it was needful, because I had been working 12-16 hours a day...7 days a week...for several years. I had to STEW over my predicament for quite some time afterward. I was tired, and my countenance was PASTE-like. LETTUCE move beyond this. Perhaps we can learn to SQUASH our differences, and STEAK a claim; in that, to KETCHUP or not to KETCHUP...there is no question. We all must KETCHUP on some things at some point. Posted with love, respect, and admiration to my brothers and sisters of Online Baptist. If I could give you each a FLOUR, I would. Respectfully, NN
  14. HERESY! My dad...being the good parent that he was...made me eat beets once. Before I did, I asked him to please not make me eat them; I'll throw up if I do. Of course, he thought I was just trying to get out of eating them, so he made me go ahead and eat them. I'll spare the details, but he never made me eat them again. ...and I haven't eaten another bite of them since. By the way...ketchup is the chief gourmet condiment of the United States.
  15. Okay. I'm done now...I may have gone a little overboard. Sorry. I'll ketchup with you later.
  16. Alright all you ketchup haters...ketchup antagonists...ketchup dismissifiers! What'cha you gonna do when you need to... Ketchup on your family time? Ketchup on your homework? Ketchup on your bible reading? Ketchup on your to-do list? Ketchup on your sleep? See...you can't deny it. Ketchup goes with everything!
  17. That's it! I'm starting a new movement...a new charity...a new cause! Save the Ketchup Donations accepted at nonicolaitans.org to help save ketchup from extinction.
  18. H...E...R...E...S...Y...!!! By the way...I grew up eating mayonnaise sandwiches. ...you bunch'a heathens!
  19. HERESY! Next you'll be saying that you don't put ketchup on your hotdogs!
  20. That's IT!!! I'm done here! God's holy infallible word says that by their fruit, you shall know them (paraphrased because I'm really really really really really really really really really really really upset). Lest ye know, the tomato is a fruit. Lest ye know, ketchup is derived from the tomato. I thought that I was among friends here; however, now the cat is out of the bag...it's carved in stone...it's recorded on Google... I may be wrong, but I'm pretty suspicious that the manna that the Israelites ate in the wilderness was scrambled eggs with ketchup on it. Anyone who is against scrambled eggs with ketchup is surely a heretic!!! Hey...I'm just speaking the truth whether you like it or not!
  21. Well, since you haven't been around, then I can only assume that you aren't familiar with Totoosart nor his background. I warned HIM...with a level of warning that I felt HE should hear and would benefit from. There was enough information given in my warning that it should give enough reason for others (who aren't HIM) to seek more information if they are unfamiliar with John Ogwyn or "Tomorrow's World". ...just like you did.
