  1. Through The Bible One Verse At A Time

    Exodus 9:27 And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the Lord is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.
  2. Brother and Sisters In Christ

    Some good points but "of the world" is referring to sinful matters which take precedence over our walking with the Lord. Is it "of the world" to go shopping? Is it "of the world" to exercise, whether that take the form of going for a job, lifting weights, playing a sport? Is it "of the world" to hunt or fish for food? Is it "of the world" to tend a garden? There are many activities we can be involved in outside the church which may be in the world, even as we are, but no "of the world" in the sense of being sin. As with most things, any of these could be participated of in a sinful manner, but they can and are participated of in non-sinful manner also. Jesus and His disciples and apostles took time to fish, walk, eat, attend weddings, celebrations, etc. We have to also remember that everyone born again of Christ is saved, is a brother/sister in Christ, and are at different stages of their spiritual lives, which can include being a spiritual baby or spiritually mature or any point in between. Each is saved, each is no longer "of the world" yet each persons actions and lives won't match one another exactly. We all partake of things in this world, some wrongly, some rightly, oftentimes a mix of the two. Even so, the weakest, most immature born again person is just as saved as the strongest, most mature born again person.

    Exodus 9:24 So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.
  4. There is, was and always will be one Gospel of salvation for anyone and everyone. All who were saved, are saved, will be saved enjoy salvation by grace through faith in Christ Jesus. That is Bible truth and Scripture says anyone presenting any other "gospel" is presenting a false gospel no one should have anything to do with.

    Exodus 9:22 And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt.

    Exodus 9:19 Send therefore now, and gather thy cattle, and all that thou hast in the field; for upon every man and beast which shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down upon them, and they shall die.
  7. Worse, much of this stuff is downright cultish teaching and totally contrary to Scripture.

    Exodus 9:16 And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.
  9. This, in part, speaks to our motivation: Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:1-3

    Exodus 9:14 For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth.
  11. Scientific Facts in the Bible.

    Very glad to hear you are safe and well Alan. Things such as this serve, or should serve, as a stark reminder just how unpredictable life is and how quickly anyone can enter eternity for better or worse.

    Exodus 9:12 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had spoken unto Moses.

    Exodus 9:10 And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast.
