  • Bio I am a proud husband of a very sweet wife who has blessed me with our four children. We have been married 25 years this past year and are looking forward to eternity. Life without an end, wow! I heard the gospel of Christ, (finally!), in January of 1987, and became a believer in Jesus Christ, the Holy, Only-begotten, Son of God, and have not ever regretted following the Lord. Since 1990 I have been a minister of God, preaching and teaching to the people in our church, and in the nursing home in our area. I love the Lord and am a lover of his word. I preach and teach from the 1560 edition of the Geneva Bible, hence the name Genevan Baptist.

    Interesting. Nice link, and I agree, sometimes the chapter seems to indicate a change in subject when there is not.
    As for the use of chapter and verse, I think God gave men the idea for a purpose, and even though it appears to 'change subject'
    the one's doing the chapter and verse division had no such view.
     
    The Geneva Bible I use was the first to do the verse division in the English language realm of the scriptures.

    ​So, um, you don't have verses to show proper Bible times building instructions?
  3. Genevanpreacher added a post in a topic: Grace Vs Faith, Salvation?   

    Faith = pistis
    Believe (with all thine heart) = pisteueis ( πιστεύεις - Stevens 1550 edition of the Textus Receptus)
    Trust = pistis
    Notice the closeness of the original Greek words.

    ​Uh, could you be a bit more clear on what you mean?
    I just showed you where the Lord used a commonly known way of building a structure in his example of believers versus non-believers in Matthew 7.
    How much more info do you need?
    Do you have a verse or verses that explain the  Bible times  way of building?

    ​I think you should reread this part. As the verses are complete above where you are quoting, and it is obvious what I was doing.
    I was just picking out the important parts of the verses that I wanted you to see as a comparison. Surely you see that.

    ​You obviously are not seeing what I say, or mean. I know what he is referring to. I was just pointing out he used a proper mode of building in his teaching that was commonly known IN biblical times.

    ​No.
    The block/cornerstone was to be squared, not the footer/concrete it was placed upon,
    or as the scriptures teach, the 'rock'. (see above post, where the Lord says a wise man builds his house upon.)
  8. Genevanpreacher added a post in a topic: The Cross And How Jews Perceive It: Sharing Messiah With The Jewish People   

    ​How about the Lord himself? Matthew 7 says -
    24   Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock :
    25   And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock .
    26   And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand :
    27   And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
     
    You will notice that a building of any sort has a foundation, the same now as in the 'Bible times'. 
    The scriptures are 'for' our day, and have nothing 'outdated' in them that can't be seen.
    How do you think we 'got the idea' of  how  to build a proper 'building'?
    Experience - from a thousand generations. [And that happens to go way back in 'bible times'.]
     
    A house, for example, does have a 'cornerstone'. The first block laid to start the base of our structure
    commonly called a foundation. But that base needs to be placed upon  something 'stable' to ensure
    that the structure placed upon  the base will stand the 'test of time' and endure 'to the end'.
     
    The house includes the 'cornerstone', and the firm 'rock' that it is placed upon confirms that stableness.
    If you build a 'foundation' upon sand, there is no way it will stand.
     
    Looking at the Lord's words here you will also observe that he said his words are what make that foundation the 'rock'.
     
    " whosoever heareth these sayings of mine , and doeth them  -  built his house  upon  a rock "
    " every one that heareth these sayings of mine , and doeth them not  -  built his house  upon  the sand "
     
     
    And I believe the scriptures clearly teach that the O.T. books are the foundation to which God himself placed
    the 'cornerstone' of the Christ of God, Jesus, the Son of God, and our Savior.
     
    15   He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
    16   And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
    17   And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed  it  unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
    18   And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church ; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
     
    If the Lord Jesus did not fulfill all that the scriptures said of him , he would not be the 'rock'.
    The 'cornerstone' needed to be placed upon the foundation of the 'prophets' and what they said about the coming Messiah.
     
    Examples?
     
                     Matthew 1:22  Now all this was done, that it might be  fulfilled  which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
               Matthew 2:15   And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be  fulfilled  which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.          Matthew 2:17   Then was  fulfilled  that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying,          Matthew 2:23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be  fulfilled  which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.          Matthew 4:14   That it might be  fulfilled  which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,          Matthew 5:18   For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be  fulfilled .          Matthew 8:17   That it might be  fulfilled  which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare  our  sicknesses.          Matthew 12:17   That it might be  fulfilled  which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,          Matthew 13:14   And in them is  fulfilled  the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:   Matthew 13:35 That it might be  fulfilled  which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world. Matthew 21:4  All this was done, that it might be  fulfilled  which was spoken by the prophet, saying,          Matthew 24:34   Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be  fulfilled .          Matthew 26:54 But how then shall the scriptures be  fulfilled , that thus it must be?          Matthew 26:56 But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be  fulfilled . Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.          Matthew 27:9   Then was  fulfilled  that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value;          Matthew 27:35   And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be  fulfilled  which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.

    ​Um, the cornerstone is usually set on something we would call the foundation. Some a footer. The building aspect of your thoughtline is not correct.
    Now the verse saying that Christ is the foundation is a good one to use, but a cornerstone was placed on something. The Law was our school master till Christ came, hence the foundation.

    ​Actually: 
      Matthew 2:23 |  Read whole chapter |  See verse in context And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by  the   prophets , He shall be called a Nazarene. Matthew 5:12 |  Read whole chapter |  See verse in context Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great  is  your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they  the   prophets  which were before you . Matthew 5:17 |  Read whole chapter |  See verse in context Think not that I am come to destroy  the  law, or   the   prophets : I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. Matthew 7:12 |  Read whole chapter |  See verse in context Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is  the  law and  the   prophets . Matthew 11:13 |  Read whole chapter |  See verse in context For all  the   prophets   and  the  law prophesied until John. Matthew 16:14 |  Read whole chapter |  See verse in context And they said, Some  say that thou art  John  the  Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of  the   prophets . Matthew 22:40 |  Read whole chapter |  See verse in context On these two commandments hang all  the  law and  the   prophets .

    ​You are using a bit of creative license with this thinking.
  12. Genevanpreacher added a post in a topic: Unmasking The Truth   

    Stopping 'tradition' and continuing 'conviction' is the best way to live in Christ. For years I did things and 'believed' doctrines just because it was the Churches teaching, and not because it was what I really thought scripture says. I have since put tradition aside and follow what the scriptures actually say.
     
    I am not a tradition based Baptist, but a scripture based Baptist, of which we all should be.
  13. Genevanpreacher added a post in a topic: Baptist Bride   

    ​Yeah, me too, but I am sure that those who were saved before the KJV will be good servants at the dinner in heaven serving the KJV ers.

  14. Genevanpreacher added a post in a topic: Who Is Your Favorite Pastor Among John Piper, John Macarthur, Max Lucado, Joshua Harris, Aiden Tozer, And Charles Spurgeon. Why?   

    I have to say that of the few in this post that I know, Spurgeon is the only one that I have read that encourages me every time I read his sermons.
    I have never read J. Piper, Max Lucado (except a childrens book), nor Joshua Harris. But I have read some John MacArthur (have found him a bit encouraging).
    As for Tozer? I find him very boring reading (and I usually love the dry stuff).
     
    [I do wanna add that I have read some negative things on OB about MacArthur of which I have never observed, so please don't 'bash me' for saying he is encouraging, after all Billy Graham also has some encouraging messages, and we know his 'problems'.]
  15. Genevanpreacher added a post in a topic: Snub Him Or Not   

    Yes. After all they have nothing in common. Just as most Democrats have nothing in common with 'sense'.
