The hatred has been on the other side. You have had your eyes closed. Leonard asked a question "who were the sheep that Jesus died for?" And I posted a scripture in answer to that. "Eph 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it "; And got a torrent of anti Calviniistic abuse, I could just as well answered, 15 ¶ So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. 16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. 17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. I have been called a heretic, a false teacher and a liar on here but I have never called anyone any of these. I have never responded with hatred. I just pity such when they are supposed to be Christians, When it comes to prophecy there really only two interpretations. 1 That the Pope is the Antichrist. This was the teaching of the church from the time the papacy got its full powers about AD1200. 2 That the Pope is not the Antichrist, "2 Thess 2: 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God." The second includes all versions of preterism and all versions of futurism, which the Vatican is quite happy with. The first, the Vatican hates.
Ian I cannot agree with you on the early date of the Apocalypse. You have previously said that the late date relies on an obscure remark by Eusebius, if I remember correctly. The following is an extract from E B Elliott.
English grammar has no doubt developed since 1611, as well as spelling and the use of words. For instance there was neither J or U in the alphabet. It was probably perfectly correct English in those days to start a sentence with And.
You can do it or much less $ than that. If you have audio output on a cassette you can use a suitable cable and plug it directly into the mic socket on a PC or laptop. You can then use the PC to write a CD. Cost, probably less that $10 for a cable. For better quality you can get a gizmo similar to what I use for church recordings. Mine is called Citronics and plugs into your USB socket, cost less than $60. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Citronic-Phono-to-USB-Audio-Capturing-SoundCard-USB-Digital-Converter-/151273677684?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item23389d2374 They cost about £39 in audio shops over here. If you want to edit the recordings I suggest a free download of Audacity. http://web.audacityteam.org/ This a full featured program and many churches over here use it.
The Jews did not keep the sabbath years or jubilees. The 70 years exile was so that the land could have fer sabbaths which it had not had previously. 2 Chron.36:21 To fulfil the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed her sabbaths: for as long as she lay desolate she kept sabbath, to fulfil threescore and ten years. Seventy years sabbaths are sabbaths of 490 years, 70 weeks of years, that takes it back to the time of Solomon. There is one possible sabbath and jubilee recorded. 2 Kings 19:29 And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such things as grow of themselves, and in the second year that which springeth of the same; and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruits thereof.
You may have heard the phrase Beyond The Pale? This originates from the time when England ruled Calais and there was a huge fence, The Pale, which surrounded the English ruled area. Those who lived on the other side were "Beyond the Pale," The Pale went right through a church with an entrance on each side for those living in those parts. The worshipers were also separated by the Pale inside the church. There is now a new Pale around the port of Calais, a double fence with barbed wire on top, which now extends for quite a long way along each side of the Autoroute leading to the port. Because of this, the migrants have changed their target to the Channel Tunnel. The BBC who were filming in the Area at the time said 2.000 migrants had tried to storm the tunnel two nights ago and another 1,500 tried again last night. Many managed to get to the UK, however a number have died trying. Last night one was killed after being hit by a truck, another recently died on top of a train, it seems he was electrocuted by the overhead power lines. Others have been hit by trains. All this "migrant activity" as they call it, has caused major problems in our county. The M20 Motorway, the main highway to Dover Port and the Channel Tunnel, has been closed except for trucks. This has caused much disruption on the lesser roads. People not being able to get to work, guests not being able to get to weddings, businesses having to close. A couple of days ago the travel in the area was further disrupted when a train between Ashford and Canterbury was derailed after hitting some cows that had strayed onto the line. Perhaps we should take Calais back again.
I perceived how that it was impossible to establish the lay people in any truth except the Scripture were plainly laid before their eyes in their mother tongue. William Tyndale No complicated grammar needed. The scriptures are plain to those who read them, the plouhgboy as well as the king of England
