  1. Brethren, In my travels on our furlough I have had a pastor friend express a desire for me to continue this study on the prophesies of the Old Testament, concerning the literal 1,000 year Kingdom on the earth, as written in Revelation 20:4-6. Before I begin a new lesson, are there any specific questions on previous lessons, or passages someone would like to study, that need to be addressed? I would like to bring out one thought in my talk with my pastor friend that I will address in any future lessons. Throughout this series of lessons I primarily quoted from false teachers, the cults, and others who spiritualize the prophecies in the Old Testament, in an effort to show how these false teachers are incorrect. I will probably, in an effort to show that independent, fundamental, Baptist, brethren have traditionally taught that Revelation 20:4-6 is a literal 1,000 years, and that the prophecies relating to Revelation 20:4-6 are to be fulfilled literally, quote from those IFB brethren, and other fine men, who taught a literal reign of Christ on the earth. May God bless all of you. Alan
  2. In his conservative choices of Judicial appointees, and confirmed by the United States Senate, President Trump is reversing the judicial trend of "legislating the liberal agenda from the bench," and bringing back judges in our Judicial system that will adhere to the United States Constitution in making their judicial decisions. The New American website has been keeping close track of the judicial appointees of President Trump since his inauguration, they state, "Since his inauguration, the president has nominated 230 people to the federal bench and expects that more than 180 of them will have been confirmed by the end of the year. Erielle Davidson of The Federalist Society, which has provided vetting for Trump’s appointments, is delighted: “Almost 30 percent of all circuit judges in the United States are now Trump appointees [with] nearly one in five … district court judges … Trump appointees.” Their average age, according to Davidson, is 49, which translates to 30 years or more of “originalist” interpretation of the Constitution in cases brought to their consideration. The White House calls this “a historic transformation of the judiciary,” noting that many of Trump’s appointments “have already tipped the balance of numerous Federal courts to a Republican-appointed majority.” Taken altogether, those judges “are expected to give the nation more than 2,600 years of combined judicial service.” In a meeting with Republican senators last month, the president said, “We should have, within the next short period of time – like two months – we should have about 182 federal judges.… They will uphold our Constitution as written.” https://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/constitution/item/34248-senate-confirms-another-originalist-trump-appointee-to-the-federal-bench The selections of President Trump for judicial vacancies have been wise, prudent and have proven to be beneficial to all citizens of the United States as intended by our forefathers when they framed the Constitution. Quite frankly, President Trump is keeping America great by appointing judges who will adhere to the law of the land: the Constitution.
  3. May God bless all of my friends on Online Baptist this Christmas season.
  4. Weary Warrior Dr. Ruckman had a firm belief in the AV being the preserved word of God: Robycop does not. Dave, I really wanted not to comment in this thread for my own reasons. But, yes, the other 'bloke' really contradicted himself. In fact, it was a big contradiction
  5. I will be praying for you in my quiet time this morning. May God give you guidance, confidence, and peace in your heart.
  6. On the Linux Questions home web page there is a link called, "contact us." When you click on the "Contact Us" it opens up a page that you can fill in and ask for your previous information. I have never used the form so I do not know what will happen. I think if your tell them your name, and e-mail address, and it is still in their files, than they will probably just send you your old username. Here is a screen shot of the Linux Questions home web page.
  7. Here is the link to the the linuxquestions.org forum: https://www.linuxquestions.org/ My name of the Linux Questions forum is: greencedar
  8. Some of the creative ways of spelling Micro$oft are not repeatable in a Christian forum. NN was being creative, polite and considerate of his audience. Thanks NN! Well, some good news: (1) I was able to roll back the Windows 10 1909 version back to my previous Windows 10 1803 version. Here is the link to the steps that I used to roll back to version 1803: https://howtofixwindows.com/rollback-windows-10-update/ Please take note. In order to roll back to a previous Windows 10 version you must do it within 10 days of the update. (2) I should be able to block future updates. But, Micro$oft will not service the OS as before. (3) I was able to re-install, through a previous activation, or product, number, Micro$oft Word. So, I can create documents in Word; but not Office. (4) I back-up all my documents on an external hard drive, or on CD's or DVDs, so I did not loose all the work previously done. And, some bad news. (1) Even though I was able to re-install my Corel Video program (which was one of the reasons I kept a separate computer for Windows 10), all of the videos were deleted by Micro$oft and were not returned after the roll back to the 1803 version. Fortunately, I have back-up copies of my videos and will use those as needed. (2) Micro$oft did not roll back my Office Home & Student 2016 software. So, I will not use that program as I want to keep all my documents, and photos, on my computer and not on One Drive / Cloud. A few thoughts. (1) For those who use One Drive, or, the Cloud, to store your computer work, you better back-up all you work on your own external hard drive or CD's / DVDs. (2) I know Linux is hard to learn at first as there is a difference in operating Micro$oft and Linux, and, depending on what you do on a computer, Linux has some limitations, I would suggest you consider making the change to Linux. So, I will continue to use my Linux OS for all my work and only use Micro$oft for a few things. Once I can do all of my work on Linux I am going to delete the Windows OS and upload Linux on the Micro$oft tower and kiss Micro$oft a permanent good-bye.
  9. I do use two OS's on my computers. 1. Linux 19.1 2. Windows 10. Version 1803. Due to automatic windows updates, Windows took away my version 1803 and installed the new November 2019 update, Windows 10 version 1909. Among other problems, the following was terrible. 1. The update took away my Mozilla Thunderbird e-mail system. I had to re-install it. 2. The update took away my Corel Video Ultimate 2018 video creator. I had to re-install it. 3. Worst of all, it replaced my Windows Office Home & Student 2016 and replaced it with the a version that will only allow me to even look at my documents using One Drive. Now, I cannot use my Office without being on the internet and all my files, pictures, etc... on the Microsoft"Cloud.' 4. Basically, my computer, and all of my documents, etc.. are now controlled by Microsoft. Hopefully tonight I will, maybe, revert my OS back to windows 10 Version 1803. And, thank the Lord, Microsoft cannot touch my Linux OS.
  10. Amen and amen. I agree wholeheartedly.
  11. Jim, In our age, a 'personal relationship' with the Lord Jesus, apart from salvation, can mean a lot of different things to different people; especially with the Charismatics. That may be the reason why it is a difficult subject to discuss in an open forum. Attached is a devotion that I wrote dealing a little bit with King David and his 'personal relationship' with God. Hope it is a blessing to you and to all. God bless! Alan
  12. Brethren, I am somewhat distressed that in our age it is becoming somewhat popular not to study some of the godly, and knowledgeable, men who wrote about the cardinal doctrines of the faith. Also, it has become evident to me that some new IFB brethren are denouncing godly men, such as John R. Rice, and others, who earnestly contended for the faith in the liberalism in their age, in order to promote their own brand of teaching. So, every once in awhile, I will quote from such men that were used of the Lord. Concerning that in "The Day of the Lord," that God will dissolve all of the known universe and create a new heaven and a new earth, Dr. John R. Rice, in his comments on Revelation 22:1, and 2 Peter 3:7, 12-13, in his book, “Behold He Cometh! A Verse-by-Verse Commentary on the Book of Revelation.” page 310, states, “What an amazing thing that a fire will cause even the planets and the heavens to “be dissolved” when “the elements shall melt with fervent heat!”
  13. We visited Tabernacle Baptist Church, Pastor Don Ball, in Lebanon, Missouri last Tuesday evening for a special Thanksgiving service. One of the songs sung that evening was a new song sung by the congregation called, "So Much to Thank Him For." We never heard it before so I found the following YouTube video, "Rabon Creek," that sang the song. Hope you like it.
  14. Sounds like your going by faith. May God bless your efforts.
  15. Great! Always enjoy hearing the songs of Zion in Chinese. Thanks Rebecca!
