    Thank you for the explanation We are all fools unless we believe as you. I heard somewhere, that the Christian army is the only army that shoots their wounded

    My question and is only a question is when did end times begin? Haven't we (the Church) always believed that we were in the end times? If the Church has believed we were in the end times, then isn't this scripture for us 17“ ‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. 18Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. 19I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. 20The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. 21And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’ It seems to me the same Holy Spirit outpouring happens at the end as well, so when is the end Are we in the end Times or not? If we are, then doesn't that suggest, That God has indeed poured out his spirit upon us

    I don't get it Good before, evil after
  6. Thank you Will. Let me try it a different way then, using the scripture you gave me Mark 4:11–12 11 And he said to them, To you has been given the secret of the kingdom of God, but for those outside everything is in parables, 12 so that “ ‘they may indeed see but not perceive, and may indeed hear but not understand, lest they should turn and be forgiven.’ Why were they spoken to in parables? If they couldn't understand Gods word with out the spirit, why the need to speak in parables? Isaiah 6:9–10 9 And he said, “Go, and say to this people: ‘Keep on hearing,3 but do not understand; keep on seeing,4 but do not perceive.’ 10 Make the heart of this people dull,5 and their ears heavy, and blind their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.” Why the need to make the heart dull and the ears heavy and to blind their eyes? These scriptures end with lest they hear with their ears and see with their eyes and understand with their heart and turn and be healed Doesn't these verse suggest, that when man hears Gods Word he may change and be healed? If not why are they there? Isn't it saying that if their eyes had not been blind they might see, or if their ears had not been dulled they might hear Because of your second post, I went back and tried to better understand your first post. I believe you are saying simply, that these people are not Gods chosen people, that the spirit doesn't reside in them so they could never hear or see or understand.
  7. I agree No. Are you saying the scripture is speaking of physical sight? They did not believe he was Messiah God closed their minds, that's what the scripture is stating. scripture goes on to say lest they see with their eyes, and understand with their heart, and turn, and I would heal them.” To me, scripture is saying. If God had not blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, they would turn and be healed. In other words, Is God not saying, If I did not blind them and harden their hearts, they would hear Jesus words and be healed verse 39 says they could not believe, but nothing about without the spirit. it says they could not believe because God hardened their hearts and closed their eyes. My question is why did he have to do this. Why close their eyes and harden their hearts
  8. John 12:38 “Lord, who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” 39 For this reason they could not believe, because, as Isaiah says elsewhere: 40 “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, so they can neither see with their eyes, nor understand with their hearts, nor turn—and I would heal them.” My question is, If man can not come to God on his own, but needs to be called by God before he can come to Jesus. Why are the Jews eyes closed? If no man can come to God on his own, but needs to be called by God first Why was there a need to close their eyes and harden their hearts. The scripture seems to be saying, that they could turn if their eyes had not been blinded
  9. I personally believe he didn't cave. The democrats wanted the government open before they would come to the table. There are some democrats willing to negotiate, this gives them a change for negotiations without totally going against their party and after 3 weeks if nothing happens he will declare an emergency
  10. I am sorry, I don't understand In your prayer, which was a good one, you speak of a man and a temple Do you believe a third temple will be built and a man will claim to be God in it? I suppose that is my real question. Why do people believe that? If a third temple is built, I don't believe it will be done with Gods approval. God does not dwell in houses made by human hands Acts 7 :48 So then, that temple can't be defiled, we are his temple. Its the reason I asked for scripture, I know many people still believe that another abomination that causes desolation is coming, but how is that possible? Thank you, I found a better thread to ask these questions
  11. Hi to all Can I ask, What are the scriptures that cause you to believe there will be another Temple of God built on earth?
  12. so then, is Gods Word enough to transform a sinner (the power of his Word) or does God first need to call a person so that he receives the Word Hopefully you see my problem... The word has no power, unless God has first called the person. which then makes the Word a dull sword
  13. With respect Becky, that is not what the scripture is saying Heb 4 12For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. 13Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. I believe you are saying. Gods Word has no effect on us unless God first calls us To me, this then takes the power out of his Word. The Word has no power on its own The word does not then, penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. The word is useless unless God first calls a person Basically isn't that what is being said, Gods word is powerless unless we are first called be God
  14. Can you help me understand this better, are you saying that Gods Word has no power on a sinner unless God first calls him? That kind of takes the edge off the sword, doesn't it?
