BioI was saved in a Conservative Baptist church in 1962 and attended BIOLA (Bible Institute of Los Angeles) shortly thereafter. I agree, for the most part, with Dr. Peter Ruckman; however, I am not a "Ruckmanite", per se.
Pioneering trials using man-made DNA begin in battle against cancer, ebola, flu and HIV with scientists saying the treatment could be the key to defeating them Pioneering new treatments for flu, ebola and cancer are being developed by scientists using man-made DNA. Experts have worked out how to create strands of artificial DNA, each mimicking a different killer disease, and inject them into patients. The idea is that the patients' immune systems will then be able to recognise the threats and eliminate them.

For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: 1 Cor 1:22 How about this for a "sign"?And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with firewas cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; Rev 8:8
2 Pet 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned [Genesis 6], but cast them down to hell [tartarus], and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; Jude 6: And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness [abyss/tartarus] unto the judgment of the great day [of the Lord]. Many believe that these fallen angels are mutating inside the earth, and will be released (the abyss will be opened) to torment men near the end of the Great Tribulation.
The events of Acts 2 were a "partial fulfillment" of Joel's prophecy. The fulfillment of Joel's prophecy has been "interrupted" (postponed), but will be fulfilled during the Tribulation after the Body of Christ is taken from the earth and the Jewish Sect of the Nazarenes returns, preaching the Gospel of the (coming) Kingdom, the return of Messiah. "Tongues" are not for the Body of Christ.
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. 2 Thessalonians 2:4The false-Christ will be worshipped as God. This will bring God's judgment of the inhabitants of the earth. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth [that Jesus died for their sins], that they might be saved. 2 Thessalonians 2:8-10
Sooner or later, Israel will have to take on their enemies on their own. For example, Psalm 83 has never been fulfilled. The God of Israel will intervene on their behalf, not the United States. As far as I'm concerned, the sooner the better.
His father was a Muslim, his step-father (Sotero) also. He lived with his mother and step-father in Indonesia as a child. I'd be willing to bet that he became a Muslim, as a child, in Indonesia. It's very easy to become a Muslim.
A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
When Jesus returns and sets up his throne in Jerusalem, Israel will be a light to the Gentiles.
Right now, Jesus is not "the GLORY of THY PEOPLE Israel".
See all the OT passages concerning the Millennium.
And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. Isa 60:3
And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of JacOB,
and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles,
that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth. Isa 49:6
More than half of the Jews in the world live in Israel, they outnumber the ones living in the U.S. (especially New York).
The fulfillment of this prophecy is already underway, but it will take a dramatic turn of events ("supernatural")
for the remainder to turn from the God of economics (ie: money) and return to Israel. The "Chruch" will not be on
earth when that happens. Prophecy often looks at the process from a condensed, "telescopic" viewpoint.
In Revelation 12, the "woman" (Israel) flees into the wilderness to hide from the Antichrist. Isaiah 60 is a continuation of Ezekiel 37. There is a regathering, then the Devil tries to totally wipe out the seed of Israel, then the Jews flee into the wilderness, then the Lord returns to save them and set up His kingdom, then the human survivors (the "sheep", not the "goats") enter into the Millennium.
And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed,
which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. Rev 12:17
So, after the Church is gone to heaven, there will be Jews on earth that come to believe that Jesus is Messiah.
We can assume that they will not receive the Mark of the Beast and therefore will be targeted for martyrdom.
In light of this, passages such as Matthew 24, make a lot of sense, as they are directed at Tribulation Messianic Jews.
Well now, that brings us to the crux of the prOBlem. What did Jesus know, and when did he know it. It clearly states that Jesus was the Minister to the Circumcision. Paul states that the "mystery" was hidden, but was "now" revealed. In other words, Paul states clearly that up until that time, the mystery was hidden. Nothing in the Old Testament reveals the "mystery" of the Church. Paul states that he is the apostle to the Gentiles and that they are saved by faith alone... without the Law.
If you "rightly divide" and set aside the Gospels and focus on Paul's Epistles, everything clears up. God deals separately with "the Jews" and "the Church". The Gospels are aimed at "the Jews", the Pauline Epistles are aimed at "the Church".
