  1. Dear brothers and sisters in Christ: I apologize for my lengthy absence from Online Baptist. The past year has been quite difficult and I'd not had the energy to spend the time here I'd hoped. As the Lord permitted, I was given strength to write articles for a Christian publication ("Rapture Ready") for over the last 2-3 years, and spent what energy I had on that. I also have been away so long I had no idea where to post this, nor under what topic. So please forgive me if I erred. My photo from before has disappeared as well, and I likely didn't upload a replacement properly either.
  2. Brother Alan and sister Sherry, I am in agreement with you on this passage of scripture. Sadly, I think the erroneous "gap theory" is in large part based on both disregarding scripture as well as adding to scripture. When we compare Genesis 1: 16 to Job 38:7 and Rev.12:4, I believe we can clearly see when God made the angels (including Lucifer). According to Genesis 1:19, it was the fourth (literal) day. "And God made two great lights to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night; he made the stars also" (Gen.1:16) "When the morning stars sang together, and all the s
  3. I believe the Lord led me here today (in large part) for this very post, Pastor Markle. As you know, I just posted this very phrase ("iron sharpens iron") on another topic, in reference to Prov.27:17 (without first having read this above statement from you, which you posted 2 hours prior). "Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend." And while, in the past, we have come to blows (so to speak) when wielding the word of God; I cannot say I ever sharpened your countenance. For that, I sincerely apologize. Not just to you, but to the Lord also. I was n
  4. Thank you all, brothers Alan and Scott, and sister Sherry. I'm sorry that I had not visited here as often as I'd hoped, as each day over the last year that I had strength to type I devoted it to researching/writing articles for a Christian publication. My heartfelt gratitude to both brothers and sister for defending me in my absence. And while I have not always been in complete agreement with either pastor in regard to scriptural exegesis, I do highly regard both pastor Alan (and his wonderful wife Sherry) as well as pastor Scott Markle as both devoted men and women of God whose main de
  5. Much of the problem comes from not rightly dividing God's word. "For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom" (1 Cor.1:22) We see also in Mark 16:17-18 the following: "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." Sadly, many have erroneously believed that the sign gifts applies to themselves in this current church/grace age. After
  6. It's even worse than that... the evil 'artist' uses bodily fluids in his painting (I will refrain from listing those here). Besides the fact that it's clearly a push for a race war (as this can also be seen on all MSM - main stream media - as they are now condemning people merely FOR being white)... what's even more telling is the rituals the 'artist' chosen uses. These are luciferian and occult practices. Let's also take into account the MSM reaction to Vice President Pence. They now openly mock Christianity. And this week yet another school shooting (more than a dozen so far thi
  7. Brother Jim, what a wonderful testimony to the importance of missionaries! Had those missionaries not followed the call to Alaska, you may have not heard the gospel. (I look forward also to reading your account). Missionaries are often not given the credit they deserve (from us, fellow believers) for their desire to reach the lost with the gospel. Many of them have given up ALL to follow Christ; their comfortable homeland, their relationships with family members who remain in free nations (some never again being able to SEE their kin, this side of heaven). The often horrible conditions th
  8. I recently wrote an article for "Rapture Ready" website, dealing with finding Charities and Missionaries who share the gospel with the lost. The intent of the article was to show that most charities have long ago stopped giving the gospel (if they ever did), and rather that missionaries may be the better spent donation for those who desire for the gospel to be preached. Charities use misleading names such as "Salvation ____" and " The ___ Cross" (just two well known names which do not give the gospel to the lost, but have the audacity to still use such terms in their charity names!). A s
  9. "And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise." (Revelation 8:12). This is not the only fearful sight that will occur in the tribulation... in fact, the majority of the scriptural content in that chapter deals with such things. Far too much scripture to quote here. As for "planet x/nibiru" there is no such thing. There a great many wolves in sheep's clothing perpetuating these lies,
  10. I edited my post to remove all eschatological reference, and hope that is more to your liking. I did feel it was relevant, but since it's not my OP, I will abide by your parameters.
  11. I was wondering if he had inadvertently been blocked? Remember a couple of years back when I had that issue? The anti-spam settings were such that if a person made numerous editing changes to a comment (while typing it, before posting it) OR if a person put 2-3 comments in a row in succession that the spam-filter would think it was spam and block the person? (Or so I was told). The only way I got back in was to contact a fellow OB memver on facebook who put me in touch with sister LuAnne (Happy Christian) to then get in touch with Bro_Matt to fix the issue? Had I not known someone, nor had a w
  12. "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." (2 Tim.4:3-4) If I may be so bold as to butt in here... I believe this (scripture above) is why good churches with sound doctrine are declining. But pastors aren't told to cave into worldly demands, nor to make churches more like rock concerts or coffee shops. Instead are told to: "Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke,
  13. Brother Alan, I also agree with brother Larkin's assessment of 1 Sam.28 in regard to the spirit of Samuel. Verse 12 shows us she (the witch of Endor) was clearly taken aback "when the woman saw Samuel". Not to derail the study, but rather to focus for a moment on this part of scripture, and ask a question. It's clear that Saul had been anointed of God. And even David did not slay Saul, (though numerous times he had the opportunity to do so) because David recognized that the Lord had anointed Saul. Yet Saul did sin greatly against the Lord and disobeyed Him. Saul was also jealous over Da
  14. Brother Alan, I would very much be interested in a book review on Clarence Larkin's "The Spirit World". I've not (yet) read it myself, not knowing it existed... but have now found a free copy online and plan to read it (God willing). It would be a very timely study, since spiritual warfare is a major issue in the life of believers. (Eph.6:12). I just started the first chapter, and it looks to be an excellent read. Maranatha!
  15. Thank you for the Chinese lesson as well as the teaching, brother Alan. And brother Jim, What a wonderful joy to have been used of the Lord to help lead Wu Cheng to salvation in Jesus! It's been a while since I have felt that thrill of exhilaration and pure joy that we get when someone isn't just interested, but actually believes and accepts Christ, even more when they (as had did) has the desire to evangelize his Chinese friends and family. (And as you said, his thirst for God's word being insatiable, you knew he truly had come to Christ). While there have been several people take an inter
