  1. Hello LB, welcome to the forum. I hope you'll enjoy your stay here.
  2. Hello brethren, I am back after 11 days in the hospital for congestive heart failure. I have bee battling fluid buildup since the first of the year. They say I have afib (irregular heartbeat) and a general heart muscle malfunction. They sent me home with oxygen and a bunch of new medicines. Please keep me in your prayers. Thanks.
  3. Well you can imagine when I ran across posting it on another forum I was puzzled how someone could shake out their lap. I ran across the ESV version and it makes it appear as an idiom. I still don't see where they came up with folds. My mistake.
  4. Well atpollard, you are close enough but it did not imply lap as you think, it meant the fold or the hem of the garment. ESV is a modern one that plainly states that: (also NKJV - NIV) Neh. 5:13 "I also shook out the fold of my garment and said, “So may God shake out every man from his house and from his labor who does not keep this promise. So may he be shaken out and emptied.” And all the assembly said “Amen” and praised the LORD. And the people did as they had promised."
  5. Okay, I have one that you may have to look at several modern translations before you can decide. Neh. 5:13 "Also I shook my lap, and said, So God shake out every man from his house, and from his labour, that performeth not this promise, even thus be he shaken out, and emptied. And all the congregation said, Amen, and praised the LORD. And the people did according to this promise." What does "shook my lap" mean?
  6. I forgot to address your references in Hebrews. Remember Heb. 8:11 tells us that all our neighbors will know the Lord, I said was yet future. Well 8:13 simply states the old is ready to vanish away. I don't believe this is now, I would be hard pressed to find a neighbor serving God. When we get to Romans 9 starting at verse 11, he is talking about the sacrificial laws and ordinances; how they have been replaced. Chapter 10 talks more of that and the other rites and what they shadowed. I believe we are partially under the new covenant but, like the lamb's blood, it points to a new era. Verse 9 of chapter 10 is speaking directly of the animal sacrifices.
  7. Yes indeed, the element of time trips us up. We need to think more on the Godlike plane to understand everything. Like calling ourselves "saved." I liken it to prophesying our future. We are allowed to call ourselves saved but it isn't really finished until we are immortal. Rom. 4:17 "(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were." This is not God lying, He is prophesying. I think it unlocks a lot of scripture.
  8. When the disciples received the Holy Ghost in Acts 2, what was the reference to Joel about? And what about the part in the last verse (2:21) “that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved?” Acts 2:16-21: “But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel. And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Has there been any era where that has happened? Joel chapter 1 speaks about the devastation of the earth and the Day of the Lord (Future events). Then Joel 2 ends with: 31: “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.” 32: “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.” Many say we are already in God’s new covenant that was prophesied in the OT and in Acts/Hebrews. Heb. 8:7-13 “For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.” Jer. 31:31-34 “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.” Do you see the direct link between Jeremiah and Hebrews? What about the parallels in Acts and Joel? Acts 2:16-18 “But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:” First a time frame in Joel: Joel 2:1 “Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;” Next, it speaks of a restoration after the Day of the Lord. Then we are given a picture of the new covenant: Joel 2:28, 29 “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.” What can we conclude from this? What we have today is not the New Covenant God was talking about. Not yet. The way I read that is everyone that calls on the Lord will have salvation. Surely, that is not today. So, when is it?
  9. Well I looked up the Greek word as a canker sore is just a mouth ulcer with a lot of unknown causes. Here is the Greek word: canker = G1044 γάγγραινα gaggraina gang'-grahee-nah From γραίνω grainō (to gnaw); an ulcer (“gangrene”): - canker. Well now, gangrene does eat away flesh but I think Paul meant more like the pain of the word where "gnaw" would fit. One would have to ask: what would be eaten away? We know canker sores to be very painful for their size.
  10. I am sorry, I posted an answer before I signed in. If you get an anon later that would be me. If this scripture is what you meant, I think my thoughts line up quite well. Matt. 24:15 "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)"
  11. No, I think there is going to be an abomination (probably a statue) set up by the Catholics in or around the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. That is my thought about it.
  12. Say Deidre, did you ever think this antichrist could be in "a temple" that he only considers to be God's? All the while showing himself to be God or in the place of Christ (Vicar of Christ). Kind of looks like the Vatican and the Pope to me. Something to consider, no?

    James 2:10

    Justification is only through grace and it is a good thing for we can never really keep perfectly the law. During the OT times they endeavored to keep it by the letter. Christ came and gave the Sermon on the Mount for the spiritual application of that same law. The more we learn of holiness and about God's nature, the more we see ourselves falling short. Sometime I wonder why God puts up with us, but it must be character building to deny self-will and walk according to the word. One thing, it will get your eyes of worldly goodies: money, fame, lands, fine cars, boats, jewelry, furs, etc.
