    AVBibleBeliever got a reaction from ASongOfDegrees in Why Reject Truth When It Is Given?   
    It is funny to hear this coming from you.  Because by some of your own post in another thread on eternal salvation you are not taking a serious look at the scriptures, but negate everything because it goes against teachings you have been fed by others or hold too.

    I want to give you all a little update on my situation.
     
    Thanks for your prayers.  I have been released for light work only and I am heading into full recovery in my lower back. At least in terms of the two vertebrae that I dislocated.
     
    this week was the first time I had no pain at all.
     
    Just keep me in your prayers.  the Lord supplied during that time but I am in need still $450 electric bill, $69 Phone and electric all just came in. Plus next wednesday my wife and our sun will need new passports from their countries Embassy that is $120 plus photo's and copies not to mention a full tank of gas and 6 hours driving each way.

    Before I go I would like to ask for your prayers.
     
    Some of you know I suffered a back injury two weeks ago and ever since I have been in severe pain.  Often I cry to the Lord just to give me strength to endure.
     
    After getting the x-rays it was discovered I have practically no disc between my L5 and S1 in my lower back.  and on a scale of 1-5 with 5 being no disc I was rated at 4.5. 
     
    I have been to two chiropractors after three visit with one there was not improvement so I transfered to one closer to my home. He was able to help me the first visit and the second one improved a little more but I am still in a lot of pain.  the L5 vertebrae is pinching the nerve going down my right side into my leg.  No medication really works so you can imagine 24 hours a day it gets to be exhausting.
     
    My sleep right now is only for 3 to 4 hours a night and that with the help of medications otherwise I would not be able to sleep at all.
     
    The diagnostics is I have osteoarthritis of the lower back and well as degenerative disc syndrome/disease of L5/S1.  This is a serious condition as it is a painful one.
     
    This is why I am not up to debating and responding to many of the post you have made in the threads.
     
    Please pray for wisdom for the doctors, I am scheduled to visit a Orthopedic doctor on April 21 (thanks Obamacare) and I will need to have a neuro-specialist also look at me as well after the Orthopedic specialist.
     
    God bless you all
     
    Yours in Christ

    AVBibleBeliever got a reaction from ASongOfDegrees in Eternal Security Taught In Hebrews 6   
    If I said that I was mistaken or wrote a mis thought.  However the point was as in  faith plus works in the law so it was the same in the preparation of the kingdom Matthew through Acts8. faith plus works.
     
    If Israel would have accepted Christ as their messiah, he still would have been killed and rose again in three days and ascended into heaven, there would have been a 7 year tribulation and a scattering of the Jews, then he would have come in 37AD to established the kingdom.
     
    But that never happened and we have what we have today still waiting for the tribulation and His coming to set up the kingdom.

    of course not

  10. Thanks
    AVBibleBeliever got a reaction from ASongOfDegrees in What Is A Hyper Dispensationalist?   
    Landmark or Baptist or Bulengerites(SP?) as they are known are Hyper dispesationalist.
     
    this is what makes me upset is that most who don't practice a dispensational right dividing study pattern will often lump all dispensational system people in to one group HYPER-dispensationalist.  These are hard core no baptism for anyone in the church age as well as other doctrines like it is ok to drink wine and strong drink comes from this groups because only Israel was commanded the 10 commandments and the commandment not to drink wine or strong drink. as well as other errors in scripture.

    I am not saying you are wrong, and because of psalms it agree on part the rejoicing that is, but the resting is assumption on your part. 
     
    those under the alter are to be resurrected at the first resurrection of Rev 20.
     
    and actually while our bodies may die we will never die.

    AVBibleBeliever got a reaction from ASongOfDegrees in After A Christian Dies   
    I don't think it is speaking of me and you though.  It looks to be speaking of Israel if you had left in the first three verses connected. 
     
    This is an area of right division there are three divisions of saints I wont copy my whole study out because you should do your own to see if what I say is true.  But basically 1) saints is Israel at and during specific times and instances of use in the bible. 2) saints are the Body of Christ the church of God today mostly found from Roms to Philemon (be careful there is a use that is speaking of Israel in there), and 3) Saints speaks of angels, Israel, and the body of Christ.

    AVBibleBeliever got a reaction from ASongOfDegrees in Repent Of The Mark?   
    The church will have to be gone before chapter six seeing that is where the first six seals are opened.
     
    The harvest in 14 is not of righteous but of unrighteous it is their blood that will be trod out in the winepress of Gods wrath not anyone of the body of Christ.  Just look at where those who are reaped are thrown into (see underlined).  This is a harvest of unbelievers is part of God's wrath.
     
    Rev 14:13 ¶ And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.
     14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
     15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
     16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.
     17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
     18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
     19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
     20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.
     
    many claim this is blood Comes from Armageddon they end up spiritualizing it to make it fit Chapter 19

    AVBibleBeliever got a reaction from ASongOfDegrees in Repent Of The Mark?   
    OK I have not read completely all the posts here.  and of course you know I hold to a different economy at the time of fulfillment of the Book of revelation.  I do not believe any part of this book is fulfilled except for John's completion to write that which he was comanded Rev 1: 19 hast seen, i.e. the gospel according to John, and the things which are i.e. Revelation chapter one, and the things which shall be hereafter i.e. the writing of the whole revelation for the seven churches (there is no record of any of the seven earthly church locations ever received copies of the book of revelation).  I believe these churches are the church in the wilderness (Jews that had been scattered by the defilement of the temple as seen in Daniel).  I know that others don't and that is fine.
     
    harpazo is not found any where in the book of revelation except in Revelation 12 concerning the son and I believe that is Jesus Christ ascension.  Rev 12:5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
     
    concerning the 144,000 it is said here Rev 14:3, 4 And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.  Harpazo is not mentioned here at all in the Greek so if we say this is a harpazo we are adding to the word of God.  the word here for from the earth is "apo" which can mean a departure, or a completion, or a separation.   But no "Caught up"  now what the is it is from the earth and in the next verse is is from among men. However, John is in a heavenly view of the throne in which the 144,000 will be at that time but has not happened yet.  So how they get from being sealed with the name of the father to heaven is a mystery in the book of revelation for it does not say.
     
    So scholars assume it is a rapture/harpazo of sorts and connect it with being part of the first resurrection.  except you can only be resurrected if you are dead and not everybody in the body are dead when they are caught up too.  so this theology of being part of the first resurrection and connected to a rapture is a bit faulty.  because the first resurrection is clearly stated in Rev 20:4, 5 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.   But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.  The first resurrection is of dead men who were beheaded for their witness of Christ and the word of God, did not take the mark of the beast nor worshiped it.  this is not anyone prior to the great tribulation nor the 144,000.
     
    Could our scholars be a little mistaken on their teaching?  It would seem so. 
     
    And why?
     
    Failure to rightly divide the word of truth

    From a safe then they already know who stole it.  according to a member there I know they have a computerized safe  and it is set up that two peoples pin numbers must be entered into the safe's digital lock in order to open it.  so either two people were there and they used their numbers to open the safe the record is in the safe's system or was recorded to the computer in the office that the safe uses to record who uses the safe.  If that system was over-ridden I would still be suspicious that is was an inside job and more than likely it is a scam.  Because all you have is their word there was $600,000 in that safe. 
     
    Generally all checks are separated from the cash.  Checks are not usually kept in the safe.  and one must remember that most banks have deposit boxes for businesses and churches to use for large sums accessible at their nearest bank location even on sundays.
     
    It all sounds to convenient.  Watch the IRS jump on this and they look a bit closer to the ministries staff  income taxes and and claimed expenditures.  Remember these are to be NON PROFIT ORG they are to be pretty much in the black or red very few are in the green.

    AVBibleBeliever got a reaction from Miss Daisy in Joel Osteen   
    If I am correct his ministry just filed a theft case that some one stole $600,000 dollars last weekend from his ministry.  I just couldn't see this being done seeing that he has such a large staff and supposedly multiple accountability levels for those who handle the tithes and offerings.
     
    What got me was they had insurance to cover stolen money.
     
    Seems to me this may be an insurance scam.

    All of Paul's writings are the words of God not Paul's opinions or preferences.  When you start saying the word of God is the preferences or opinion of the man whom God used to pen the letters or books, you will end up not obeying God's word, and to say the least, you will line up with every cult out there because their big claim is the Holy Bible is corrupted with the opinions an preferences of men.
     
    Even in the Book of Corinthians he made this statement and it would apply to anything Paul wrote not just the letters to the church at Corinth
    . . .  let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord. 1Cor 14:37  you have not acknowledged the things Paul wrote are the commandments of God when you say they are Paul's opinions.
     
    When I read your statement that this part of the scriptures was Paul's preference I have decided to put you back on my ignore list.  As the thread title suggest we do with all heretics and false teachers "mark you" and "avoid you".

    From the first slight I asked him to stop communicating with me and he refused.  Then I asked him again and again, I finally just had to add him to the ignore list just so I could straighten my short hairs as they say.
     
    I tried very hard not to respond in like,  I never made accusations or placed him in an a typical labeled box or ever questioned his salvation because of his personal remarks towards me.
     
    Now from ministerial experience these types of brethren find fault in those they disagree, looking and searching for anything to which they can continue to point a fault.   They will act like a hound dog sniffing out anything just to pick a bone of contention. There is no convincing them they are being less than gracious or loving ,and they will always feel it is scriptural and they are guided by the Holy Ghost.  They always justify themselves, and it takes a real move of the Holy Ghost in their life to get them to change. 
     
    It has been my experience in counseling many brothers in Christ who are like this over the years(and they are in every culture and race upon this planet), they have somehow grieved the Holy Ghost in this practice and as such they tend not to hear the Holy Ghost speaking directly, indirectly, through others or through scriptures.  And they always have to have the last word in any given situation.  It gets to a point one must just ignore them and let them be to their own devices.
     
    Thanks for taking the time to point out to our brothers (me included) that we need to be sure we attack the message and not the messenger so to say.

     9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.
