#380052 Blood Moon Tonight

Posted by Invicta on 27 July 2014 - 11:08 AM

Another Blood moon (also known as a very large moon in the early evening just after sundown) is coming up on August 9th  and again on Sept 8th


When I was at school,  over 60 years ago, we learnt that large red moons occurred when the moon was low on the horizon and caused by the  deflection and the dust of the atmosphere.

It is often said that Palestinians lost their lands and homes in 1948.  Yes nearly 1,000,000 did, most werer ordered to leave by the Arab Hihg Command to enable their forces free range to kill the Jews, promising that they would be able to return in 6 months,  They kept them in the refugee camps near the border and did not allow them citizenship.  At the same time over 1,000,000 Jews were evicted from Arab lands, many from before 1948.  None of these were able to return and were all given citizenship in Israel or left to settle in other countries.  


Many others nationalities were dispossessed of lands and homes throughout the centuries.  I remember a Jewish Christian saying to me that very few Jews throughout the centuries have been born in the same county where their grandfather was born. Many different nationalities were dispossessed during and after WW2 including the Germans from East Prussia,and the Poles in Eastern Poland and of course millions of Jews who lost lands, property and their lives.  Many Arabs supported the Nazis because they persecuted Jews.  That was before 1948. During the war, I cannot remember the date, but you can probably look it up, there was a pro Nazi coup in Iraq.


Do you ever ask yourself why Israel and now Egypt blockade Gaza?.  I can remember in the 60s and 70s, Israel had many workers from Gaza and the West Bank, they used to go daily to Israel by bus and return in the evening, but the Palestinians not only sent workers in the buses, but also bombers and gunmen to attack the Jews.


You know and I know that there will never be a two state solution.  The Arabs will not accept that, they could have had that under Arafat, but they only want to kill every Jew and "drive them into the sea." The Hamas leaders are quite happy to have their women and children killed by Israel,  because it makes they appear the injured party.





#379741 John Calvin Had It All Wrong

Posted by Invicta on 23 July 2014 - 12:40 PM

The Calvinists associate spiritual death with physical death. However, you have to hear the word of God in order to repent and believe. According to their logic, if spiritual death is physical death, how can anyone who is dead hear the word? Also, many unbelievers understand the Gospel but reject. How can they do so according to their theology that one who is dead cannot understand the Gospel?? They would have to take the view that someone hears the word and understands it after they are saved, spiritually alive.


Joh 5:25  Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.

They define regeneration as God making a person alive so that they may then believe and be saved.


I have never defined it as that, or believed it and I have never heard anyone mention it till someone posted it on here.

Sad, but not surprising.  As they said on TV after the vote, Anglicans in USA have already instituted women bishops.


I wonder how it will affect a vicar who is the son of a Baptist Pastor. He operates more or less independently of his bishop.    He preaches salvation by Christ alone and baptizes only converts by immersion.  He will not baptize babies but cannot baptize those who have already been sprinkled as babies, but will send such to a Baptist Church for baptism.  One of my cousins goes to an Anglican Church where the vicar does exactly the same. 


What will they do?  My feeling is that they will find some way to calm their conciences to enable them to stay.


What should they do?   Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Nice straw man there - tell us what we are saying and then argue against it......


Well Dave, that is what you have been doing.  Telling us what we believe then arguing against it.

#378601 What Are Your Plans For This 4Th Of July Weekend?

Posted by Invicta on 03 July 2014 - 06:26 PM

On this day, July 4, 1533, John Frith, the man of peace and purity was burned to death at the stake because of his religious views. John had quoted scriptures to argue that the bread and wine do not actually turn into Jesus' flesh and blood. He also denied that there is a purgatory after death. "A purgatory! there is not one only, there are two. The first is the Word of God, the second is the Cross of Christ: I do not mean the cross of wood, but the cross of tribulation."


John Frith was burnt with a young man, Andrew Hewet who came from my old home town of Faversham, then spelled Feversham.

It "scares" you that  BIble Believing pastor has convictions about Bible Doctrine??? 

What is scary about that?  It should be NORMAL.  Every Bible Believing Baptist Pastor should be loudly proclaiming Bible Doctrine from the pulpit.  It should not be an anomaly, but normative.


The trouble is that often personal interpretation is taken as sound bible doctrine and mostly it isn't.  


I think it strange that most are against Calvinists, but believe in the pre-tribulation theory, which was started by a High Church Calvinist, namely J N Darby, who later became leader of the strict (Exclusive) variety of Plymouth Brethren, a branch that are still paedo-Baptist.

No that is an Americanism.


WE believe the appeal should be in the Gospel Message and then leave it to the Holy Spirit to apply the message.

The problem with ad 96 is Revelation 1:1-3 CANNOT be understood as 2000 years distant without rejecting the literal meaning of the words. I believe Jesus, rather than Irenaeus. 


Also, Ian, note that Revelation is written to the church and concerns the Church, not unbelieving Jews.

#377673 Choir Festival

Posted by Invicta on 21 June 2014 - 06:20 PM

This evening my wife and I went to our local Male Voice Praise annual choir festival.


It is a type of singing that we like although we have not attended one for some years.  The hymns and songs were mostly good, although there were a couple that I would not have chosen.  They ended with their usual rousing finale, We'll All Be There.



When the last day shall come and the roll shall be called

When the saints meet the Saviour in the air,

When the pilgrim and stranger at last meet their home

We'll be there, Praise the Lord, We'll all be there.

Invicta - we went over the timing of this recently........ again......

You timing doesn't work. Didn't work. Won't work.
You are just wrong on the way you put the events of Dan 9 together.

And I am not going to go through all of it again.
But you are the one who misinterpret those verses just so you can make it fit what you want to believe.


No sir.  It is you who misinterprets those verses to make them fit what you want them to.


Did the people of the prince come?  Yes,  

Did they destroy the city and sanctuary?  Yes

Did not one stone stand on another? ( Matt 14: 2 ) Yes  2  And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.



Historians tell us that Zion was ploughed like a field.  I wondered myself how that fitted in with the wailing wall still standing, but it seems that those stones date back to the last time the Jews tried to build the temple at the time of Hadrian.  It was detroyed again by Hadrian's forces and we still celebrate the destruction today when we give three cheers.Hip Hip Hooray, or more correctly Hep Hep Hurrah. Short for  "Hierosolyma Est Perdita", (Jerusalem has fallen) as announced in the Roman Senate by Hadrian, and the senators replied Hurrah, Hurrah, Hurrah.
