  1. Cruz is a dishonest man. Even Carson has recognized this. Cruz has also asked the party delegates to put aside the vote of the people and nominate him. Who cares what the voters say.
  2. Horseradish! I love how some of you are so in tuned to the motives of Christians. I'll tell you why I'm voting for Trump. Its because he's the only one who isn't another phony politician, except for maybe Carson, out of the bunch. And now that Carson has dropped out Trump has my vote.
  3. Notice the writer of Hebrews is addressing the Jews as another group outside the church of the firstborn? This verse is speaking to a group of Jews "in the last days" who are ready to meet the church of the firstborn which is already in heaven on mount Sion. This verse has yet to be fulfilled.
  4. Some of the writings "church fathers" were scriptural and some were based on North African and Gnostic heresies. Origen (an Arian) wrote the Hexapla which in reality is the phony Septuagint (aka LXX). There was no Seputagint before or during Christ's days. Origen made it up based on what he thought it would read like. The only evidence of it prior to him was a fable written within the Letter of Aristeas who was an Alexandrian Jew. Of course, all the scholars were suckered into believing it to be true.
  5. Yup. The same two who met Jesus and the disciples on the mount of transfiguration. Also, the miracles performed in Revelation by the "two candlesticks" are like those Moses and Elijah performed. The two represent "the law and the prophets" which will be back into play during the Great Tribulation.
  6. This passage is another proof that there's a difference between the kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of God seeing there are tares in the kingdom of heaven but not in the kingdom of God. In its precise application it's about the millennial kingdom though a general application can be applied to how people receive the word of God. Notice the harvest is "the end of the world" not the rapture.
  7. Hey, why don't you get yourself a subscription to Peter Ruckman's Bible Baptist Bulletin. You might get off the baby bottle.
  8. Ruckman, Ruckman, Ruckman, Ruckman.... There have actually been a few contributors to this forum in the past who were trained at Peter Ruckman's school. The majority of them were gracious and did no name calling. It's the baby bottler's that remain in this forum that do all the name calling. They are so spiritual.
  9. Anything but believe the simple English, right pastor?
  10. You people will never change. It's time to put away the baby bottle for the meat of the word. No wonder this forum is dead.
  11. If I'm unsaved then it's pretty sad that I'm one of the few in here that actually believes what the bible ( KJV) says and doesn't toss out entire passages that I either don't understand or that goes against what my favorite IFB preacher teaches.
  12. Yes, they are not the same. What cause the confusion is that both share some of the same characteristics. But, the kingdom of God cannot be taken with violence (Matthew 11:12).
  13. I haven't been ignoring you. I just haven't been reading any of your responses. Nothing in any of my posts has been gameplay. All has been sound doctrine.
  14. You are correct. Under the New Covenant during the Millennium the temple and sacrifices will be reinstituted. When did this become hard to believe? These people just toss out any verses that go against IFB teachings or just spiritualize them away. Forget literal fulfillment. Just observe above poster. He's straight out saying Ezekiel 40-48 is wrong because Paul said this over here. No attempt to reconcile the two perceived contradictions is attempted. No need to because his IFB school or church taught differently and no way can they be wrong. I honestly believe most in here don't actually read the bible. They just read portions of the bible that back IFB teachings. Or spend most of their time doing word studies of the "original languages" which are dead for a reason.
  15. The gospel was hid in the OT. It was there (mostly in type) and the prophets earnestly sought it out but it was hidden (I Peter 1:10-12). In fact, not even the twelve Disciples understood what Jesus was talking about when he told them of his death, burial and resurrection (Luke 18:31-34). And this was AFTER he commanded them to go forth and preach the gospel of the kingdom of heaven. The kingdom gospel they preached was NOT the death, burial and resurrection gospel that we preach today. That gospel was revealed to Paul who made it known to all the saints including Peter himself (Romans 16:25,26). Also, along with this revelation went the truth that Jew and Gentile would be united in one body called the church (i.e. the body of Christ). Anything that John may have written about was AFTER Paul's revelation and was brought back to his remembrance in due time by the Holy Ghost (John 14:26). This would explain why John's gospel is so much different than Matthew, Mark and Luke. Read the verses. It's clear as midday sky. Only those set in the teachings of their denomination or the "original languages" over the bible will not see it.
  16. It's been done a bunch of times in the past (ex. Rick Schworer) and you didn't receive it. You won't this time around either so I won't waste our time.
  17. The kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of God are two different kingdoms. You can't get into one without getting into the other first, though.
  18. He's the closest thing to the man of sin there is right now. Also, I see nothing wrong with a bunch of IFBers joining with Catholics to protest against destructive things within the community as long as it doesn't go anything further than that (ex. interfaith services). I'm probably in the minority here, though.
  19. Doesn't the verse he quoted say that the nation of Israel would be a light to the Gentiles? Didn't Jesus say Christians are a light in this world? I don't see what the problem is. The Gentiles will be drawn to Christ through how he deals with his people. Just think of it as the moon reflecting the light of the sun.
  20. You are an amillennialist. Which is historically the eschatological position of the RCC. It was systematized by Augustine. Talk about being friends with the RCC. At the end of the day you are in essence a preterist since you still take the promises of God to the nation of Israel and place them upon the church. That is Replacement Theology. The result is the same.
  21. Interesting. Where exactly is the Dome of the Rock located today. Where Fort Antonia is or the Temple platform? It's still strange that the scripture says that the temple was located at Mt. Moriah yet in that diagram above it's just a slope on a hill. I still think the Antichrist will level the Dome of the Rock. This is how he'll incur favor with the Jews.
  22. Wouldn't Mount Moriah make it one of the highest points within the city? And couldn't they running down be a reference to them running down the stairs of the tower of the fortress?
  23. Where does it say that the Holy Spirit will be removed? II Thess. 2:7 doesn't say the "he" is the Holy Ghost. People have assumed that the "he" of the passage is the Holy Ghost but nothing in the context suggests that it is. You have to read that into the passage based on a preconceived theological belief. Actually, following the rules of English grammar the "he" in the passage is the the mystery of iniquity (aka the man of sin) but really, that doesn't make much sense. IMO, "he" that withholds is Michael and he will be taken out of the way at the rapture. Daniel 10:20,21 [20] Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come. [21] But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince.
  24. All you say is true but remember the gospel of John was written way after Matthew and even Paul's revelation. The gospel went first to the Jew then to the Gentile. Matthew 10:5-7 [5] These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: [6] But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. [7] And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. The Gentiles are the other sheep he was to bring into the fold.
