    Alan reacted to Jordan Kurecki in Fruit from Uganda   
    Thanks to those who prayed for me, and gave to me to go to Uganda last summer. For those who saw my video update, I mentioned a man named Fanuel, I had gotten to go and share the Gospel with him at his hut and he got saved, then proceeded to come to our meetings that same evening and gave a public testimony of salvation:
    Here is a picture of him from the day he got saved in summer of 2016. Then I received another picture from my friend over in Uganda of this second picture, which was him at the Church today, one year later, attending soul winning training! Praise God

    Certainly, he was a saved believer.  Biblical context is fairly clear on the matter.  it is preconceived doctrine that leads to a different conclusion.

    This is a wonderful synopsis of Israel's place in history as well as where she stands today and in the future. Bro. Cloud's teaching on this is Scripturally and historically correct and a breath of fresh air amid all the replacement theology crowd.
    It also puts Christians who love Israel in their proper place instead of being portrayed as some sort of radical extremists.
     Gen. 12:2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 
     3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

    “Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name: If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever” (Jeremiah 31:35-36).
    Israel has been the subject of false teaching and unbiblical thinking among professing Christians since the time of the church fathers, so called, and the invention of Replacement Theology and the subsequent sad history of persecution of Jews by professing Christians. These heresies were subsumed by the Roman Catholic Church and were part of the heretical baggage that was brought out of Rome by... Read More View the full article

    Alan reacted to heartstrings in Climate change   
    "Condemn" is a pretty strong word. But I do judge folk by their fruit. Everything I mentioned is in the "Left's" agenda. But I didn't say "all" I said "the vast majority" do thus and so. For example, I have a first cousin who I love dearly. He believes the "climate change" nonsense but also holds to the second amendment, thinks a man aught to marry a woman, and hates abortion.
    Sad. My Wife's good friend is Chinese, born and raised in the PRC under "Chairman Mao" and my son is marrying a woman from the former Soviet Union. Their folks still live over there and it kind of brings these places a lot closer to home for me.

    The vast majority of people whining about "climate change" are the same folks who eagerly support the "LGBT" agenda, gun control and think it's perfectly fine to murder the unborn while being outraged if someone kills a turtle, lion, gorilla, or shark. Why would I believe what they have to say about anything?They say that "ice ages" occurred during the "Pleistocene" but that the earth then, warmed up by itself, and melted all that ice. But now they say that mankind is causing it.
    I believe that God still controls the weather and all the other major natural processes. I also believe that the main impetus behind this "climate change" agenda is about swaying public opinion in order to wipe out privately owned industry. They're doing the same thing to facilitate "gun control" AND to do away with private property.  It's all about totalitarian control. I say, if you want to be controlled like that, move to North Korea.

    Dave,  Years ago I read that oil and coal is still being made in the bowels of the earth.  During the Cold War, the Soviets dug for oil far deeper than we had to so they could get oil.  53,000 feet I seem to remember.  There was also studies read that said oil was not organic, that it picked up organic materials as it traveled through the soil, that it was produced in the bowels of the earth, near the molten core.  
    Interesting stuff but not compelled to look into it more or hang my hat on any of it.  I do know this, the left always lies for their entire ideology is contrary to the Bible and that God is in control.  I'm all for nuclear power, my home is powered by the split atom from the two Combustion Engineering reactors not five or six miles away as the crow flies.

    My dad was a graduate of BBTI, as are a number of friends of mine, including a young man from our church also going to Africa. I lived there as a kid. Great program. I pray it works out for you according to the Lord's will.

    I understand he doesnt go through all the verses of calvinism. Honestly - in my expierence, chasing verses is a waste of time. You will always just come back to "well your interpretation is wrong!", "no YOUR the wrong one". on and on and on.

    Calvinism is inconsistent within itself and implodes if you run it out logically. Now you can be a consistent calvinist and there are many (RC sproul for example). Those people you wont convince. How do you convince someone that God wants all people saved when they believe God hand picked those for hellfire ? you don't you explain why their view of God is tyrannical and walk away.

    The article is well done. Colossians3:1 has a marvelous truth concerning our relationship with the Lord and Dr. Morris expounds on that truth, and further explains our relationship with the Lord, with Ephesians.

    I have come to the same conclusion.
    The Holy Spirit resides in the heart of every believer in the church age. Even as we speak, the mystery of iniquity is working among the false religions of the world, the false prophets and false teachers among the churches (and all over the internet!), and in the heart of the wicked unbelievers.
    Once the Lord Jesus returns in the clouds as Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, the Holy Spirit will be taken away, "And then shall that Wicked be revealed." 2 Thessalonians 2:8 The anti-Christ will be revealed; Revelation 6:1 The Lord Jesus will destroy the Wicked one when He returns on the earth as portrayed in Revelation 19:11-21
    The Holy Spirit, in the lives of all the believers, hinder the anti-Christ from being revealed.

    ...only he who now letteth will let,  until he be taken out of the way. 2Thess.2:7b
    I took this verse of scripture out of context on purpose in order to examine it, and to get a better understand who this verse is speaking of. The entire chapter seems to be focused mainly on events surrounding the anti-Christ: But this verse seems to be speaking of someone else altogether. "he who now letteth" doesn't seem to be the anti-Christ at all, but someone entirely different, because the next verse says "then shall that wicked be revealed" My conclusion in v.7 is that the one "who now letteth" is perhaps the Spirit of God, but I can't be absolute of that conclusion, I am only speculating at best.

    I was reading Ecclesiastes chapter 1 for my devotion this morning and thought of how King Solomon brought out this scientific fact concerning the water distillation process.
    "All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again." Ecclesiastes 1:7 King Solomon, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, was scientifically correct. God ordained that the waters going into the sea are distilled and thence return to the place they originated for the benefit of mankind.
