  1. Thanks, It appears I need to be burped however.
  2. Understood and good point
  3. Most certainly but the idea of the army that follows Him down is still the question. There is enough Scriptural evidence to indicate the army will be given the honor of fighting unless the sole purpose is window dressing (I doubt it but it could be I suppose). Of course who exactly is this army is yet another unanswerable question. Circumstantial evidence supports that it could be the church age saints and most likely is IMO. Interesting ideas but no one will know until it happens Ok, but the Scriptural reference you made would not be relevant if this army is indeed the church age saints and this army indeed does fight, which is the point I am making and most likely the point that Eric is making. What is the point behind your reference?
  4. I can't speak for Bro Eric, Bro Jim; but I do believe he is referring to the actual battle of Armageddon itself and not before that. I for one believe (not dogmatically mine you) that we will be the army accompanying Christ on that day. Therefore the vengeance will be God's, not ours personally.
  5. False "Gospel" is the I way In lean on this passage friend. IE, a twisting of the true Gospel. Satanists, reprobate groups of all whacky idolatries, cultists that are oblivious to the real Gospel are not included in the passage. The vast majority of the lost know these are "illegitimate" religious beliefs. Catholics, most Protestants, Emerging, Promise Keepers and charismatics, etc.. are INCLUDED in the passage IMO. I also include IFBs who push the quick 123 head prayers and mental assent without heart conviction "gospel" (giving themselves a false increase) that God had not given. But the Lord certainly knows who is accursed and is ordering us to treat them as such.
  6. Excellent point BTW MC. I think most realize that Elijah will be one of the witnesses, no doubt. The second IMO will be Moses most likely. This is based on the types of miracles God performs through them during the Trib which match the miracles God worked through them in the OT.
  7. I suspect Google has been "on fire" over this one! It was for me.
  8. Well this is a meaningless point in the context of the discussion. Any reasonably thinking Christian would use their God given common sense to know this passage is not talking about a pair of churches. 2 witnesses and or 2 Prophets which they are referred to in the same context does not translate to "churches" period.....ever.
  9. IMO you are pretty much dead on with what you know already. Go with your idea.
  10. A lack of discernment is displayed in this post. Discernment includes common sense and awareness of current events. It is obvious to the whole world that Israel is a nation again as of many years ago and has spent decades gathering back Jews from all over the world. Whether the gathering of the ten tribes is advertised is irrelevant, what is relevant is that common sense tells anyone that decades of gathering from the four corners would most certainly gather all ten tribes in numbers I wonder the more I read these posts if this is a "bad gene" in the minds of histor-a-cists (those who twist history to match their misconceptions of Scripture)? Is it a lack of accurate knowledge of current events or below average common sense or a combination of both? Whatever it is, it is a flaw of the souls and not of the Spirit
  11. I am guessing there is allot more to this story than that church board wants us to know. Drinking is advocated in these mega social clubs so a drinking issue is hardly this guy's issue with them. They just don't want the truth out which I suspect is far more egregious even for this group. Had it been just drinking they would be overly accommodating to get this guy rehab and to show "mercy", It is a bait and switch with cover up as the objective. What they are covering up only time will tell, but it will come out sooner or later.
  12. Crusade is the catholic word for jihad.
  13. What did I tell you about your meds!!!!
  14. Should I assume you are attempting to quote me? Please reread my post carefully friend, you are simply paraphrasing me with this post. thanks
  15. You have your assurance in the passage you sight brother. Take a look again but read it from a different perspective. This passage is not addressing sin it is addressing unbelief. It is saying that it is impossible for one born again to fall away from their belief in Christ else if they had truly fallen away how could they be saved again? They would have to crucify Christ again. Once born again you cannot turn away from the truth of it. IMO you have demonstrated quite well in your posts that you believe it with your heart and have not stopped believing in Christ's salvation. You are letting satan hold you down with mental doubts. Belief is all there is. Heart belief makes one anguish against doubt, which you are obviously doing.
