  1. As always context is key. The false theory of prior peoples has to take the verse out of proper context to make their doctrine. They claim replenish is referring to the people and then attempt to say this means Adam is and his descendance are replacing people that were killed off. They claim The directive is for mankind but the context shows "Be fruitful, and multiply," is about the people but "Replenish is not about the people but about what the people are to do with the earth. "replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth." Means that mankind is given authority by God over the earth to "Dress and Keep it" as also stated in Genesis 2:15 And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. Genesis 1:28 and Genesis 2:15 are companion texts teaching the same directive. "Replenish" with "Dress" refer to the same directive to put things back to how God made it and "Subdue" with "Keep" means we are to suppress things from over growing and keep it how God made it.
  2. Baptist should not be afraid of any verse merely because of what the false doctrines of some try to teach about it. Baptist doctrine is bible doctrine in context for a reason, and should not be forsaken for hyper-dispensational theory, which attempts to divide out salvation by faith alone from any passage it does not understand. The passage does not say salvation was hid. Your hyper-dispensational doctrine is reading that into the passage. The passage (Luke 18:31-34) actually says the things "concerning the son of man" was hidden. Meaning the manor of death by the cross and specifically how He was to pay for our salvation but Saving faith was not hidden (as clearly shown in John 12). The way of salvation for mankind has always been clear to the OT believer and is the same for the NT believer. Believe on Christ and you will be saved by HIM. Scripture is clear on that point. John 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. John 11:24-27 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. 25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26 and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? 27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world. Romans 3:22a even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe:... 2 Corinthians 4:13-14 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written (Psalm 116:10), I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; 14 knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you. Romans 4:3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. John 8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad. Hebrews 11:24-26 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; 25 choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; 26 esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.
  3. I get more junk in my email than on facebook. The key to both is to know how to use the blocking and spam tools. I have very little extra junk on my feed because I know how to customize it.
  4. As a Pastor on Facebook with several groups, geared both to the lost and saved, I think more pastors and Christians in general should get involved in intentional ministry and evangelism there. Now if they are just there to chew the fat and complain and read gossip, or they are easily provoked or get high blood pressure, then no they should not be there or any social media platform.
  5. He's not wrong but rather the time period has been drawn out. We are currently waiting on the Jewish nation to turn to Christ nationally by fulfilling the Lord's prophecy about them in Matthew 23. 29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, 30 and say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. 31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. 32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. 33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? 34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: 35 that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. 36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. 37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! 38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. 39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
  6. Public posts are a matter of public record as well. I haven't seen it here much but in the past many people in certain forums would intentionally goad people into saying certain things then deleting key posts to make the person seem to say something they actually weren't.
  7. "Nearly two years after the world first became aware of the existence of a novel coronavirus spreading in Wuhan, China, the origins of COVID-19 remain shrouded in mystery. For more than 18 months, the scientific and political establishment insisted that the virus had a natural origin, ridiculing anyone who dared contradict this view. Part-thriller, part-exposé, “What Really Happened in Wuhan” is a ground-breaking investigation by journalist Sharri Markson into the origins of COVID-19 that delves into never-before-seen primary documents exposing China’s concealment of the virus, fresh interviews with whistleblower doctors in Wuhan, and crucial eyewitness accounts that dismantle official explanations for the initial outbreak of the virus. Please join Hudson Institute for this important conversation."
  8. A distinction needs to be made between "Roman Catholic" inferring Roman church authority and the general term "catholic" which started out as simply meaning the whole Christian body of believers.
  9. My opinion is it probably began to be a true political force when the last Western Roman emperor left Rome and in the power vacuum the Roman populace looked to the Roman Church for civil leadership and authority, around 476 AD.
  10. While I'm against denominationalism. I'm not opposed to a church using titles to show what they believe, their church tradition, and who they fellowship with, and anything else that is important to them. So far it is the best and fastest way to know generally what a church believes and practices.
  11. I'm vaccinated an I felt it was the right choice for my family after much research and speaking with our family Doctors. I'm 100% opposed to the socialist approach to health and oppose forced vaccination. It needs to remain a personal health choice. The vaccine did cause a normal immune response for about a day where we ran a slight fever but were fine the next day. My company under pressure to comply with the illegal mandates so is now asking for a copy of my card as they are considering implementing biweekly testing for the un vaccinated. I told them I'm vaccinated but wont be providing any medical documents as proof. We'll see how that goes. I may decline their possible future request to do testing but haven't decided yet.

      PS: Read your poem 'Life and Death' on your blog; very thought-provoking. You must have been quite young when you wrote it...

  13. The Four Stage return of Christ - A Basic Revelation Outline, Part – 3 The return for Righteous Israel, Led by the two witnesses and 144,000 sealed and elect saints of God. -Chapters 8-14 The return For His Nation (Saving Sealed Israel, 7 Trumpets) Time: Last half of the week Chapter 8-9: Christ opens 7th seal initiating Prayer of Slaughtered Saints from 6:10-11, 7:13-15 and Psalm 79. and Six angels sound the coming Judgment of God. Chapter 10: John is shown the Seven Thunders that will come just after the seventh angel sounds but before the vial judgments. They will reveal God's eternal plans. Chapter 11: Two temple prophets described. Called away just before 7th angel sounds. Chapter 12: New's Israel's Spiritual struggle with The Devil is shown. Chapter 13: The earth's Struggle with the Beast and False Prophet is shown. Chapter 14: Christ gathers Israel to Mt. ZION and gathers the World to be judged. After the 144,000 flee Jerusalem and are safely out of anti-Christ/devil's reach (Rev 12:6,17) and with the two witnesses defending and proclaiming at the Jerusalem temple (Rev 11:2-3) they turn their focus on the world's remaining believers and attempts to slaughter them all in a world wide Great Tribulation Purge (Rev 6:11, 7:9-14, 13:5-8). Their arrival and prayers in heaven causes Christ to open the Seventh seal which initiates the 7 trumpets which sound the coming of Christ to earth to rescue Israel and judge Babylon for the slaughter. They are meant as clear and visible warnings for all to repent. (Rev 9:20-21) During this end times slaughter the vail between heaven and earth is removed and can be seen by earth (Rev 6:12-17, Mat24:27). Heavenly destruction and signs are shown by the trumpets but the anti-Christ/ false Prophet manipulates many to follow them instead of repenting, by deceiving them in seeing heaven as the enemy of man and the signs as their own (Rev 13:5-7). This continues for 42 months/1260 days until the 7th trumpet sounds and Christ physically steps foot on Mt. of Olives (Zech 14:1-11, Acts 1:6-12) and Gathers his elect 144,000 to Mt. Zion from the wilderness (Rev 14:1, Mat 24:30-31). In his arrival and just after the angels gather New Israel, he sends forth one last call to surviving nations to repent before reaping and poring out the vials of judgments on Babylon (Rev 14:6-12, Joel 2:30-32). Trumpets: 1st: Hail and fire mingled with blood falls on earth, 2nd: As it were a great mountain burning with fire falls on earth, 3rd: A great star from heaven (wormwood) falls on earth, 4th: Third part of the sun, moon stars are smitten, and an angel giving warning of three more woes to come, 5th: A star falls from heaven (opening the pit releasing locust and the angel leader Abaddon to torment men for 5 months), 6th: Releases 4 angels from Euphrates which initiates an army of 200k horsemen (Joel 2:1-11) prepared to kill men (starting a year, day and hour before the last trumpet), 7th: the mystery of God as he declared to the prophets, is finished. And announces the arrival of Israel's Christ on earth. Notes: The timeline for the end time is given by the following verses: Church age: Now till the rapture. Rev 1:10, 4:1-2, Acts 1:6-8 (and possibly Ten days tribulation just before the rapture as referenced in Rev 2:10) Tribulation (seals broken): Rapture till the desolation, 1290 days. Dan 8:13-14;12:11 Great tribulation: 35/45 days of intense killing after desolation and cleansing of the temple. Dan 12:12 Trumpets of Wrath: Desolation till Christ return 1260 days. Rev 11:1-3 Vial Judgments: When Christ returns, One day and an hour. Rev 18:8;10,17,19
