  1. They are historical because he is writing the book to them after he had the vision and he was directed to give each a whole copy of the vision. Revelation 1:1-9 is the introduction to John's testimony of the vision. Just as John is real, so to are the churches to whom he was writing. The rest of us are simply invited to read, hear and keep the testimony. While they are the first recipients the rest of us are called upon to apply the revelation to our day and keep it for the next. Though its fulfilment is future, it had a present application for them then and for each of us who were to come aft
  2. It is not a return to the earth but it is a return for his church "in the air". It is His Spirit that lifts us to the air and Christ has gone from heaven to the air in order to initiate the reunion and meet us there. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
  3. Agreed. I'm all for voluntary social distancing and community efforts to stop a virus from being as severe but the draconian government lockdowns of businesses and people is a clear violation of constitutional and basic human rights of self determination.
  4. Ask yourselves why every nation in the world has implemented social distancing guidelines of some kind, and even Trump himself is taking his treatment seriously. No nation with any understanding of the virus simply ignored it. When its in the body at a high load it can clog the blood, prevent oxygen to the body and crystalize in organs. Its precisely because of social distancing guidelines (but not lockdowns) that its not as bad as it could be. In lab tests its 50x more dangerous than the flue and if it had been allowed to spread unchecked then we would have been like Italy and china at t
  5. So true. I still need to make one for our church institute as well but it takes a lot of work to get it to where its just right. You all are almost there! And what you have done looks great. Good job!
  6. Very nice website. Its simple and straight forward. The only thing I noticed was the "Our Story" page wasn't updated yet and still has the nonsense language posted. https://lbc-pt.org/our-story/
  7. I think someone who goes extremely paranoid to the point that they must hid everything they do for or give to God for fear someone might see it and praise them and thereby "steal their rewards", thinks too much of themselves and in a way also has their reward in their ability to hid their christian works. We shouldn't worry about what others see us give or what they see us do. We should however so shine that when they do see those deeds that we do they will turn and praise God. Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father
  8. Only if they are itemizing. I always took the "standard deduction" as my items were always less than the standard. However, all Americans, not just Christians, should deduct everything they legally can, so that they then can have as much of their own money as possible to disperse as they feel led. No if someone wants to give more of their hard earned money to the government, well that is their prerogative, though, in my opinion, a foolish one.
  9. I agree. That is one of the few reasons why we went third party in 2016 as a protest but I have to say he far exceeded my expectations and has even improved in his character and somewhat moderated his speech over the last term with the godly influences he wisely surrounded himself with. We'll be voting for him this year as he has kept his campaign promises and there really is no better option.
  10. I think a lot of the discrepancy has to do with duel fulfillment of Prophesy and delayed fulfillment. Much of what Ezekiel sees in the first part of the book was a "vision of God" where he saw the events happening to the temple of his time but because of some reform that occurred, the final judgement that would have been brought on by the abomination of desolation in Ezekiel 9 was delayed till the 70th week as we see, in the vision of God, in Ezekiel 9 the abomination of desolation is occurring but in Daniel and Matthew 24:15 we see it has been delayed until mid 70th week. I believe vision tha
  11. I don't disagree with what you said but it really has nothing to do with what I said. What I mean is many young people disillusion by those professing Christians more interested in making friends with and acting like the world or disillusioned by bland or passionless professors of Christ, are drawn to the passion and commitment to Christ, as dis played by Anderson and many in the NIFB, that they come for the charisma and sincerity first and then adopt the good with the bad, whither that be a bible version or doctrine.
  12. The Four Stage Return of Christ. Basic Revelation Outline Chronology of Revelation is progressive and accumulative in nature, interjected at times with explanatory passages. (Notice the phrases are always “hereafter”, “after this” and “then” not “another view of this event is”. Also notice sections of explanation pause the chronology “What meanith” or “come and see” etc. Rearranging of the Book is often done to get man’s theology to fit but God’s order is correct.) Chapters:1-4 For His Body 5-7 For His House 8-14 For His Nation 15-22 For His Kingdom Chapters 1-4 For His Bo
  13. Christian Charity given willingly and directly to noble causes is not the same as compulsory giving to the government who then chooses for you where and how money is spent. Jesus asks you to do it directly and willingly. The politician seeks forced payment, forces you to give them your money while promising to only give some of it to the poor and even then to things which are appalling and poorly managed, then many squander what you give them to the point there is never enough for the original cause, so then demands more money which they then take by force from you. NOT. THE. SAME.

  15. The content of the sermon was really good and put together well. Aside from delivery and presentation, which will improve with practice, its important to remember that a sermon is not just to convey content but also to move the hearer to action of some sort. So with each point in a sermon, the effort needs to be made in getting the hearer from thinking "that's some nice information", to thinking, "I need to do that". For example, after your message, your pastor got up and gave them a call to action and listed several ways they could respond to what they heard. If your sermon already has t
