  1. Why does there have to be a State bill when the US Constitution already covers this.. Thank you Texas I do hope other States will follow suit... it is sad it has come to this.
  2. Pleasant read guys THANKS 🙂
  3. Often context of the thread/discussion tells us which type or label of the covenant we are talking about. A promise is sorta one way ... a Covenant is more like a contract. Laying out the what is expected of the parties evolved. Short personal story... Our Daughter was about 9 years old... She was reminded to get the dishes done. She did . She did the dishes and nothing more. As a being a bit snotty 9 year old she needed it completely spelled out doing the dishes included the silver ware cups glasses etc. She choose to over look the context of her chore.
  4. @Ben Asher you and i pretty much agree. I do not read in Scripture a division of God's people. We are one Body from Adam to you and me. God's Word is very clear we are one. My reply to @Solas has to do with his use of the word literal.
  5. God's covenant to Abraham was conditional God keeps His covenants ... Gen 26:3 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; Gen 26:4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; Gen 26:5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws. Gal 3:7 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.
  6. To have a real discussion we must understand each other in 'what/who is Israel'. To me the Israel of God is and always has been a body of believers. The Jewish religion is antichrist. 1Jn_2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 2Jn 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 2Jn 1:10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: This in no way says there are not born again believers of Jewish blood or non Jews who once claimed the Jewish faith and are now believers.
  7. Literally speaking where does that passage use the word 'Israel' ?
  8. literally reading the passage you posted @Solas say nothing about Israel Then why do you make a point of natural Israel? As for Ruth and Rahab we totally agree 🙂
  9. Only the Spiritual? Is the spiritual less than the natural? If you believe so share the passage you understand to be saying so. 1Co 15:46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. 1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. Are we saved by the blood in our veins? Let me ask you if a person is half Jewish are they half saved? Thinking literally also can be a Pandora Box. We all understand Jesus is not a 4 legged lamb. We are the body of Christ God tells us Israel is His first born. Exo 4:22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn:
  10. After re-reading your post i understand you were using the word 'them ' to counter the verses posted above 😕 DUH get it now When any of us read anything we come to that reading with ideas in our heads . Our minds will work to 'fit' those ideas into our preconceived thoughts. This in not a bad thing it is just normal. Even after asking God to make His Word fresh, and clear my mind of dispy it was years of effort to to remove the preconceived ideas. There is a lot of SDA in your head.
  11. @Solas Gal 3:29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. You are in Christ so you are Abraham's right?
  12. Welcome @AvaLily 🙂
