Re: The Four Blood Moons

The thing about these eclipses that I question is that prophecy is so Israel-centered. And geographically as well. At least two of those eclipses will not even be seen in Israel. I'm not certain about the others. Some interesting questions are suggested. Is, "the moon will be turned to blood," a lo...

Re: The Four Blood Moons

As Lewis once said, "I know of the two great commandments and I better get on with them". Indeed! The two greatest commandments which, as Jesus said, sum up the Law, plus Jesus's "new commandment" (John 13:34), are tough enough! And will bear greater fruit in the life of a believer (and the world) ...

Re: The Four Blood Moons

On top of that my personal view of the rapture is that it is anti-Semitic in that the Christians get beamed or raptured out of the world while the Jews are left back on earth to suffer another holocaust for their sins. This to me is absolutely preposterous. Whether one is Pre-Mil--Pre-Trib, Pre-Mil...

Re: The Four Blood Moons

Ok - looked into this a little more and it is a little scary - although a few questions if anyone can answer: 1) There have been 7 Tetrads - only three of them have been associated with Israel - what about the other 4? 2) Another Tetrad will not happen for a 1000 years. Is this implying Christ Mill...

Re: Matthew 16:28

In addition, the disciple John also saw "the Son of Man coming in his kingdom" and described what he saw (and much more) in the Book of Revelation. Re Matthew 17 and the relevant passages in the Book of Revelation, note that Jesus said "see", not "live until" "the Son of Man coming in his kingdom". ...

Re: 1 Peter 4:7 Makes More Sense With OEC

Pete, I know they don't refer to the age of the earth, but the phrase "at hand" makes more sense from an OEC view than YEC. Two thousand years is a big chunk of time if the earth were young. That last statement might be correct, were Moses and Peter speaking of humans' perspective. But they are spe...

Re: Alleged papyrus on Jesus having a wife

A papyrus fragment that mentions Jesus's wife is likely ancient, probably dating between the sixth and ninth century, latest research shows. When Karen L. King, the Hollis Professor of Divinity at Harvard Divinity School, announced the fragment's existence in September 2012, there was a widespread ...

Re: 1 Peter 4:7 Makes More Sense With OEC

I don't see these verses speaking to YEC or OEC, even obliquely: Psalm 90:1 O Lord, you have been our protector through all generations! 90:2 Even before the mountains came into existence, or you brought the world into being, you were the eternal God. 90:3 You make mankind return to the dust, and sa...

Re: Son of Fred Phelps Sr. says church voted father ...

He is gone. I'd love to learn that he had repented, but I don't expect it. Nor do I think it likely that the news he had would be likely to become known. God knows, that suffices.

Pres. Obama is in the White House until January of 2017. He could probably commit multiple murder with his bare hands before a 2/3 vote of the Senate would toss him out after being impeached.
