That is OK to a point, but is no use preaching Jesus to unbelievers if they don't know who God is, We need to preach the holiness of God and his hatred of sin, etc before we can preach Jesus,or they will be believing in a false Jesus.
John 17: 9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. 10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. 11 ¶ And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. 13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
Well I agree. I don't think any believes that . I think you have misunderstood Covenanter. He seems to separate the coming in nthe clouds from the coming when we will meet him in the air. Don't misquote scripture. I disagree with Cov on this.
Mark 13:1 ¶ And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here! 2 And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. Matt 23:34 ¶ Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: 35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. 36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. 37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! 38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. Are you saying that God did not bring Titus to destroy Jerusalem for the cruel murder of His Only Begotten Son by the Jews? During the Jewish war, Titus was the only one who wanted to save the temple, appealing to the Jews to return to legitimate Roman rule, but there was a madness that seized the rebellious, there were three factions fighting in Jerusalem and the temple, dead bodies were in the streets with a terrible stench, and the seditious were trampling on them. Are you saying that God did not bring Titus, the prince who was to come to destroy the city? And the people of the prince, his soldiers, who set fire to the temple against his orders, were not the people of the prince?
There was no such thing as toilet paper here during the war, you had torn up squares of newspaper hanging on a nail in the loo, or the lav as we called it in those days. It there are no newspapers in the preppers days then they are in trouble.
Hm, possibly, but I'm not sure. We have a visiting preacher who is doing a series of studies on angels. He said the Angel of the LORD in the OT is not the same as the Angel of the Lord in the NT, because of the LORD on the OT is not used in the NT. After doing a study. I wrote to say I didn't agree. I said that Peter said Ac 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. and when peter quoted David Acts 2:25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: 26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: 27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. David Used LORD Peter used Lord. Even the JWs recognize that in their bible, if not their doctrine for it uses Jehovah in Acts. Strange really when Peter says David was speaking about Jesus.
To answer Eric's post from the top of the page, Mystery Babylon is the Apostate church today and in past centuries. We call it the Roman Catholic Church and its head is the Antichrist aka the Pope, 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.
Yes, I pointed that out to Covenanter a year or so ago. God came in judgment when he brought Nebuchadnezzar against Jerusalem, and also when he judged Babylon. God Neb called His servant. Cyrus, He also called "My shepherd " and "My anointed" and held his right hand.and no doubt Titus was also God's servant when he brought him against Jerusalem. Having said that, I don't think that "coming with the clouds is different from the coming when we meet him in the air on the last day.
We are told constantly that China own trillions of US debt. But about a week ago there was a news report that said China is trillions in debt. So where is all this cash. Not the UK, not the EU, they're skint as well, as is Russia. So where is all the money? Is all an illusion as I have believed for some years, that there is no money, only debt.
Wretched is one who of those who is teaching novel doctrines. 1Tim4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; And he calls others apostates. I pity him.
I don't think he included your so called rapture what the scripture says is our gathering to meet the Lord.
Here is a question for you. I was taught variously that there were two comings, Once for the saints and then with the saints, Or that they were two stages in one coming. But Sir Richard Anderson said the was a third coming, and perhaps other comings as well. How many second comings are there?
