  1. Genesis 40:1-23, “Do not interpretations belong to God?” Only God knows the future. In the Bible, God recorded all of the knowledge of the future that God wants us to have. The Bible is the word of God and can tell us what is important. The philosophy of man, the religions of man, the interpretations of man, and the idols made by men, cannot help a person when he dies. The interpretations of man, false religions and prophets, are erroneous. Joseph is an example to the every Christian who wants to have a close relationship with God and walk in the Holy Spirit. God gave us the story of Joseph to show us how to walk with God. In Genesis 40:1-23, in the confines of a prison, while suffering tremendous adversity, we can see several fruits of the Spirit in this passage in the life of Joseph: longsuffering, gentleness, goodness and faith. Galatians 5:22 and 23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” Because Joseph walked in the Spirit of God; he could have the proper interpretations of the dreams. Verse 1-8 Interpretations belong unto God. Astrologers and false prophets cannot accurately foretell the future. The reason why we have so many different interpretations of the prophecies of the scriptures is due to the fact that false prophets, and false teachers, cannot accurately interpret the scriptures. The apostle Peter clearly stated that only holy men of God, using the scriptures as their standard, can properly interpret the scriptures. 2 Peter 1:20 and 21 says, “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scriptures is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” “… but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” Because Joseph was ‘holy,’or as Galatians 5:23 states, ‘temperance,’ God gave him the proper interpretation. The meaning of temperate is; (1) marked by moderation: as, keeping or held within limits: not extreme or excessive; and, marked by an absence or avoidance of extravagance, violence, or extreme partisanship. A saint cannot be ‘holy’ without having ‘temperance’ in his character. Daniel 2:27 & 28, “Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king; But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these.” The false prophets, and false teachers, in the churches, the false gods of the Taoists, the Confucian, and the Buddhists, cannot reveal the end times. Only the Bible can give us the events of the end time. The prophecies of the scriptures are true and will come to pass. Joseph was a true prophet. God gave him dreams and Joseph could interpret the dreams of others. In this story God gave us two examples. As with Daniel, God gave Joseph the proper interpretation and Joseph gave the honour and glory to God. “Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king; But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these.” Daniel 2:27 & 28 Even though Joseph was in prison unjustly, Joseph still had goodness in his life to help the Baker and the Butler in their trials of life in the prison. Please take note that Joseph saw the sadness of these men and had an inward desire, without the prospect of a reward, to help both of these men in their sorrows of life. Is not this act of goodness, this act of kindness, without any prospect of reward, like the goodness and kindness of the Lord Jesus? “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.” Acts 10:38 Verse 9-13 The dream of the Butler. The butler told Joseph the dream and Joseph told the the butler the correct interpretation of the dream. Only God could have told Joseph the interpretation. Verse 14 and 15 Joseph's Request and Testimony. Joseph asked the butler to make mention of him to Pharaoh. Joseph then told the butler his story. Joseph reminded the butler that he did nothing wrong. The life of Joseph, as the life of the Lord Jesus, was above reproach. Verse 16-19 The dream of the Baker The chief baker told Joseph his dream and Joseph told the baker the correct interpretation of the dream. Verse 20-22 The Fulfillment of the Two Dreams The interpretations of Joseph were correct. God gave the interpretation to Joseph and Joseph told the interpretations of the two dreams to the butler and to the baker. The dreams were fulfilled in public. As with Daniel, God gave the correct interpretations of both of the dreams. The interpretation of a true prophet is always right. Deuteronomy 18:22, “When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.” Verse 23 the Butler forgot Joseph Man forgets, but God does not. In God's proper timing, and in His proper ways, He will fulfill His will. In the life of Joseph we know that he had a good relationship with God. Even though he is in prison, he did good, the butler forgot him and Joseph remained in prison. Even in intense adversity, Joseph was kind to those around him. In spite of the other peoples failure, Joseph still trusted in God. In spite of his still being in prison, Joseph still trusted in God and did good. Joseph, throughout his life, and in this instance, had longsuffering, gentleness in adversity, goodness and faith.
  2. I have recently read a few articles on global warming and while I somewhat detest the tree hugger mentality, I do hate the idea of cutting down trees, and love wildlife reserves and such. My question is this, are the "scientists" who are proclaiming that in the next 30-50 years the heat of our continent's will rise to nearly unbearable temperatures correct and if they are, do you think this is the preparation for events during the tribulation period concerning the trumpets and vials? I am leaning toward yes in both instances but honestly I would like to read someone who I know can be trusted. Your thoughts please.
  3. JEREMIAH 49... I don't see a lot of eschatology being discussed here (other than the millennial kingdom) recently... so I decided to go out on a limb and start a discussion about Jeremiah 49. I wanted to focus on the specific passages of 35-39, and most specifically upon verse 36. "And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come." SOMETHING is going to happen in Iran (specifically where Elam used to be which is in what is now Iran). It is an area ***"stretching from the lowlands of what is now Khuzestan and Ilam Province as well as a small part of southern Iraq." (*** land description taken from wikipedia... see also map below) I realize that Persia is also listed in Ezekiel 38-39 as one of the nations which is included in the confederacy against Israel. I do not think it is likely that is part of Ezekiel's prophecy in ch. 38-39, but I do think it COULD precede it, and possibly be a factor in why Persia is listed in the Ezekiel 38-39 confederacy (although the reasons for Ez. 38-39 are more about "taking a spoil") So back to Jeremiah 49 SOMETHING will happen to cause THIS: "... I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come." My thought is that it's possible that Iran will attempt to attack Israel. Israel will defend herself and isn't it amazing that the Bushehr site in Iran (the very site the nuclear reactor is located) is smack dab in the area where Elam was? Not saying it HAS TO happen that way... and I'm not saying the event HAS to be nuclear... I am just that it COULD happen that way. Whatever happens the Lord will be in control of the situation. It does not have to be nuclear, it could be any number of events...and it will be of God's will. Whatever happens (nuclear or not) will cause these things to happen (which have not YET happened to a total fulfillment in history): 1. The Lord "will bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven," 2. "and will scatter them toward all those winds;" 3. "and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come." History tells us that Elam was conquered by the Assyrian empire and then later by the Medo-Persian empire.However, that did not drive out all of those people who lived there, but instead they were then under the control of the Medo-Persian empires control, but most continued to live in that same area of land (even though under the rulership of the Medo-Persian empire). So I do not believe that being conquered by the Medo-Persian empire fulfills this prophecy since they were not driven off the land, they were not scattered to the 4 quarters, and they haven't (yet) been scattered to all nations. Elam is now a part of modern-day Iran. (and in that part of Iran there is a nuclear reactor as well as current plans for the Iranians to build more) I conclude these verses are future events (possibly soon). I also would further conclude that verses 38-39 will be fulfilled at an even later time (the millennial reign) because there certainly is NOT a throne of the Lord in Elam, nor has there ever been in past history. The only other place in the Bible that a (future) earthly throne of the Lord is mentioned is in reference to Jerusalem. So while I do not claim to have any idea exactly what the throne of the Lord in Elam will be... nor the reason why... I do believe it is true, because the word of God IS true! Every past prophecy which was fulfilled was fulfilled exactly as prophecied, to the letter, Which means all future prophecy will also be fulfilled exactly as prophecied. I am only giving my opinion of what COULD cause them to be scattered to the 4 quarters, and scattered unto every nation. That said... God cannot be boxed into "logical human reasoning" because His ways are far above our ways. So I am not stating it HAS to be a nuclear event... it is just a possibility of what could occur to cause such a scattering. 35 "Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the chief of their might. 36 "And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come. 37 "For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before them that seek their life: and I will bring evil upon them, even my fierce anger, saith the Lord; and I will send the sword after them, till I have consumed them: 38 "And I will set my throne in Elam, and will destroy from thence the king and the princes, saith the Lord. 39 "But it shall come to pass in the latter days, that I will bring again the captivity of Elam, saith the Lord. map image (taken from wikipedia) for the location of where Elam was: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elam#/media/File:Elam_Map.jpg What say ye all?
  4. My fellow Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I am seeking scripture that speaks out against my topic. I do not believe that God would come to another induvidual and tell them something that he had intended for the person being told to find out. Here is what I am facing; my relationship of a month shy of two years was ruined by a woman who told my significant other that "God told her that she needed to end our relationship." I cannot blame my Girlfriend for listening to her do to the fact that I am out numbered in this fight. Her Mom, Sister, and Grandparents share the same penocostal holiness faith. She is not that way herself, however her mind could be swayed when the core of her family is in support of this. The woman who told her to do this is a Second cousin whom is more like an Aunt to her and they have always been close. She is the second wife to a man (her third marrige herself) who pastors a church in our area. His congregation is being led by him unknowing of his past life...I guess he doesn't read the book of Timothy...however thats a different discussion. I need verses and most of all prayers because the only way that her and I can make it back together is by God's touch. Thank you friends!
  5. Hello all... let's talk. Recently there was a change made to the feed stream of this site. A few of us are having difficulty finding new posts and so (I think) it may be leading to a lack of discussions. Many of us came here for fellowship with other IFB friends, brothers, and sisters. The world has a worldly view... But I'm curious as to what do fellow bible believer's think about the following topics, and whether (or not) you think any/all of the topics relate to scripture, if so, why? Thanks for your input as I feel we should "gather together" as we see the day approaching. Here are just a few things I thought of which I don't see being discussed here currently: Earthquakes in various places around the globe Financial economy troubles around the globe China and Russia both pressing for a new world currency US public schools took God out/all government buildings removing any reference to God and does this relate to the younger generation's rebellion against parents and authority figures Do you see these things increasing over the last decade (yes, they've always been around, but have you noticed a marked increase over the last 5-10 years in): self-love, gimme now/I deserve everything-for-nothing-attitudes covetousness (desiring things that other people have which are beyond your means) arrogance, boasting, pride cussing, smut on TV even in the commercials unthankfulness being lied to/betrayed/broken promises all without any signs of remorse pleasure-seeking mocking of Christians, mocking of the bible, mocking of God and Jesus fornication/adultery/perversions such as homosexuality and pedophiles Russia and Iran both being right outside Israel's borders in Syria CERN The LGBT movement and/or gay marriage Christian persecution in middle east nations (and or in our/your own) False teachers on TV (and in churches) Muslim invasion of the world Syrian refugee crisis (what do you think of the crisis in Germany, Austria, and other nations. Also what do you think about Obama importing them here to US?) The "deal" which basically allows Iran to have nukes Obama's use of executive orders to bypass Congress And if you'd like to discuss any of these things (or other current events), please state if you believe it does or does not pertain to scripture and why. Pick a topic... and let's dig in! Thanks
  6. @Pastor Scott Markle & @Covenanter Seeing now I have more time, I am willing to set up a forum for discussion on Prophecy. If you both agree to this, what type of format and restrictions would you like applied to this forum for your discussion.
  7. On a recent missions trip to Israel, I put together a short documentary on a recent prophetic fulfillment in Northern Israel that is very significant for the time frame we are living in today. Isaiah 29;17-18 "Is it not yet a very little while,and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field,and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book,and the eyes of the blind shall see out of OBscurity,and out of darkness."
  8. I posted a few days ago in my status that I am currently studying the Book of Revelation for college, as well as preparing to teach this in my Sunday School class. A few seemed interested in this topic so I am starting a thread to possibly discuss this. I am several weeks into this study for college and this week will be my first week teaching this in Sunday School. I teach the Berean Class, for adults, digging deeper into scripture. I am posting this in the IFB area, and this forum is not open to you if you are not Independent Fundamental Baptist. I do not mind disagreements or differences of opinions, but since I starting this forum, and I laying a few ground rules up front, I will not expect nor tolerate any arguing or abusive language towards other forum users. If this happens and it is within my capability I will remove the offending parties from this topic. I would like in this thread to ask questions and put forth thoughts that are in either my college class and/or my Sunday School class. In this way I will learn more, and also may find issues with items that I am teaching. Hopefully, we will all learn something by pooling the hundreds (thousands perhaps if Jerry is included ) of years of biblical knowledge that is contained in the people present. Any information that I present will only occur once I have completed that portion of the college class. I don't want to be accused of having you kind folks helping me do my homework. The course of this discussion will of course touch on many other prophetic books of scripture. A couple of points to remember. For my college class as well as for Sunday School the text book that is being used is The Book of Revelation by Clarence Larkin. There may be things in this book that you or I personally do not agree with, however at least for college I have to formulate my answer according to that text. Having this text book in not necessary for the use of this topic. The book is however available on the web it was printed in 1919 I believe. If this sounds interesting and you would like me to move forward with this topic let me know. The Book of Revelation - Clarence Larkin Edited to correct grammar and add link
  9. I looked at this site and checked out which version they are using. I can't figure out which version these folks are using, but it is NOT KJV. It is a bible filled with Preterist notes. Here is the link to the site: http://bibleprophecy...eristbible.html The commentary notes are in PDF. Here is the link to the Bible w/o the notes. http://www.bibleprop...of_contents.pdf Here's another link....I think it must be their "Intro" page: http://www.bibleprophecyfulfilled.org/ BTW, I am NOT promoting this Bible and I am NOT a Preterist in any way, shape or form!
