  1. "As the King can never die, so His grace can never fail." C. H. Spurgeon Dabid dia charis.
  2. Welcome aboard! We surely have some topics come up that I hope will encourage your faith and draw you nearer to God's word.
  3. Yes, I agree that, "Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." [2 Timothy 3:12] however, to what degree all depends on the Lord. But, according to everything else I've read or studied and been taught, born again Christians will not suffer "great tribulation." I may see some tribulation, I think we all will, but not the seven years of of it from Daniel. The original question is what I wanted to find out more about but, I'm beginning to believe I have the answer. That answer being the inclusion of... There are so many key words in scriptures point
  4. Back on topic, I suppose there are no other scripture references which might shed further light on what these "fearful sights" and "great signs" coming "from heaven" might be besides... So, possibly that is the end of the original question... Yes, I will refer back to Isaiah and look closer at Thessalonians and the Revelation. But, I continue to think the answer is here in the 3 synoptic gospels. Thanks folks!
  5. Thanks everyone! I will look more closely at the text and do some comparative study. I was leaning toward verses 11 and 25 being much the same. I know this, Christ is speaking to disciples, he speaks of something disciples can see, from what vantage point disciples will observe is not clear to me. A couple things throw me from just a cursory look, 22 "For these be the days of vengeance," and 27 "And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory." I've been taught and believe in the rapture of the church, I've become somewhat flexible toward the church see
  6. There is no parallel from the other gospels for the following quotation from Luke 21. Has anyone studied this, I'm trying to gather all I can. "and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven." [Luke 21:11] What will these "fearful sights and great signs...from heaven" be? Is the Lord speaking of Godly signs, man-made signs, or signs of deception by Satan? Or, is it in reference to Luke 21:25-26 and Mark 13:24-25? "and great signs shall there be from heaven; as comets and blazing stars, a flaming sword, or a comet like one, hanging over Jerusalem, and armies in th
  7. "Now, Reader, I have told my dream to thee; See if thou canst interpret it to me, Or to thyself, or neighbor; but take heed Of misinterpreting; for that, instead of doing good, will but thyself abuse:" J. Bunyan
  8. "commendable" is not in the KJV Bible this is a perspective from fallen mankind. Yes, the scripture I gave would tell us that no matter what glory we receive from the world "commendable" our hope [Titus 2:13] and portion [Psalms 73:26] is only in Jesus Christ. "our sufficiency is of God" "Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:" [2 Corinthians 3:4-12]
  9. Time will tell but, I believe you may be right. I hope Miranda will return and let us know how she personally is doing in the future.
  10. Different indeed. "Most Americans wouldn’t know how to survive being hindered by illness or disability." This story reminds me of Joni Eareckson Tada. Have you ever heard story of Joni's life or heard her sing, Alone Yet Not Alone? You know her husband had to help her breath so that she could sing that song. There are two ways to come out of disability, either bitterness or beauty. Many Americans are depending on someone other than Jesus Christ.
  11. Keep working on it you'll grasp it yet.
  12. I believe the prophet, I say prophet because the psalm had no author named, was speaking in regard to the law given to Israel. I also believe we see in the verses that follow... 4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently. 5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes! 6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments. 7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments. 8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly. ...the prophet explaining mankind cannot keep the law and
  13. I can't agree this is the sense of this one scripture, alone by itself. I believe 1 Corinthians 1:21-25 and Romans 10:1-4 are to the contrary. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. [Matthew 10:33] Far too many Jews denied Christ. 17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; 18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. 19 Thou wilt say the
  14. The reason why men do not look to the Church today is that she has destroyed her own influence by compromise. ~ G. Campbell Morgan (B. 1863- D. 1945)
  15. "Now, the blessed fact is that God is not silent and has never been silent, but is speaking in his universe." ~ A. W. Tozer Brings to mind a couple scriptures from the Psalms. "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork." [Psalms 19:1] "The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory." [Psalms 97:6]
