  1. An excellent and thorough explanation bro. Scott, thank you for it.
  2. If we do not repent of SIN, then what is it that we repent of? Repenting of sin is not a work. John the Baptist's message was "Repent". Matthew 3:2 (KJV) And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. The message of Jesus was Repent: Mark 1:15 (KJV) And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. Luke 13:5 (KJV) I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Repent and believe, it is always in this order. Do you really believe that Jesus and John were telling people to work for the
  3. Bro. Alan, is this sermon yours or by someone else? I ask simply because I do not know what you look like and therefore do not know who the speaker is.
  4. An extremely humbling post, it convicted me mightily because it speaks directly to not only me myself, but I am convinced to most Christians if they are honest with themselves. Thank you Bro. Scott for your brutally candid honesty this morning.
  5. Well done Alan. I especially like "The Prince and Preterism" part. It was a great refutation of Preterism. I have also heard some who are not preterists preach that this prince is Jesus. Sadly they, through ignorance and sloppy study habits, take these verses out of context and quickly hurry on in blissful ignorance.
  6. Thank you Brother Scott for your lengthy, in depth, replies on this subject. As I said in a lot simpler terms above; "Context is king". And context was never more important than in this thread.
  7. Oh, but surely that must mean in the grave, as to the location it happens in.
  8. The point was that The Spirit of Christ was in them, just as He is in all believers.
  9. 1 Peter 1:11 (KJV) Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
  10. The perfect recipe for yet another modern "version". No thanks, it was good enough to save me from the fire of "the grave".
  11. The second one I posted works Jeff. It is HERE.
  12. If the writer states that a word has been "erroneously translated" he indicates that it has been translated wrongly, therefore cannot be understood as it is written.
  13. Using my Bible program I count 54 instances that specifically mention hell in the KJV. When someone writes that a word, such as hell, has been "erroneously translated", my mind puts them in the category of KJV translation correctors. It has always amazed me that there are people who have the audacity to presume to "correct" or "know better" than the original translators.The usual result of this kind of thinking ends in the numerous "versions" published in an effort to correct The KJV, which needs no correction.
  14. Welcome Bro. DC. I look forward to your interaction here at OB.
  15. I do see the three dots and do know that the edit button is there. I'm just old and hate change. The edit button beside the quote button was just simpler.
  16. It is missing on each post in this thread BroMatt. We see a "plus" sign and a "quote link, but no "edit" link as there used to be. The edit link was very handy for quick editing when you are busy.
  17. I did not post the quote in Hebrews because of any perceived soul sleep. I posted it because of BroMatt's original query that seemed to ask if people thought that Jonah died in the belly of the whale.
  18. Hebrews 9:27 (KJV) And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
  19. Konstantin, Because you have not seen fit to properly introduce yourself as is customarily polite on most message forums, I would like to ask that you please take the time to introduce yourself in our "introduction" forum. A customary introduction allows other members of the forum to get to know you and properly welcome you to our small group. Here at Online Baptist part of a proper introduction will include a bit of your history, a statement of your salvation experience and any other things that help us get to know who you are and what you believe. This is especially important

  21. I am only addressing this small part of your reply. For me there is simply too much Scripture that you post taken out of context, or just plain "made up interpretation". You just seem to make up your own interpretation of Scripture to suit your argument, even when what you post has nothing to do with the subject at hand. The Scripture you posted above has nothing to do with the Devil and his angels at all. Quoting the Scripture as it was written we see that it says this: "Mark 14:43 (KJV) And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude
  22. It says His soul was made an "offering for sin". He and His soul were sinless. So, His soul was made an offering for my sin, this is the substitutionary death and offering that He made for me. 2 Corinthians 5:21 (KJV) For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. Substitutionary death.....His death as payment for my sin. 1 Peter 1:19 (KJV) But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
  23. I am seeing posts and replies that are missing the "edit" link. These have the "quote" link, but no edit link beside it.
  24. context, context, context... I am no grammarian, but context rules. This is especially important when there is a "qualifier" pertaining to the word "all", or any other word for that matter. Using common sense as well as the English language we understand, would you say that the word "all" in the following verse only applies to a select few or a class, or does it mean "all", as is stated? "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." (2Pet 3:9)
