Watch! Jesus Commanded Us For The End

There are some folks that put out very disconcerting information against our Lord Jesus' command for us to be on watch for the signs of the end and of His return. Some brethren have gone into confusion because of trying to listen to others who 'seem' educated, or smart, or look like they ought to be...

Re: End Times & Rapture Obsession - Largely A Waste of Time!

Here is what Heiser says in a setup to the above links: "What do you believe about end times?" Dr. Michael Heiser: I don't like any of the systems of Christian eschatology. They all cheat when they need to in order to create the appearance of coherence. There is truth in all of them, and bogus thin...

Re: Seventy weeks Daniel 9

If the prophesies were expected to be perfectly understood when first given, isn't it a bit strange that Jesus' disciples, life-long Jews who had studied the Scriptures since childhood, who journeyed with Christ across occupied Israel doing all manner of miracles, heard him stress what he was here ...

Re: Seventy weeks Daniel 9

Whenever someone is going through difficult times, do you quote Jeremiah 29:11, and misapply that verse as well? You can't just pull verses out of context, and misapply them to whomever you want. You've got to be kidding. I didn't pull Isaiah 42:9 out of a hat. It's given in a chapter that is decla...

Re: Seventy weeks Daniel 9

And I agree that there is only one true way that those last day events will come to pass. And I DO believe the Scriptures about them are true. But the problem is, there are key variables that are either currently missing or ones that are still vague to us, and things we cannot currently, perfectly ...

Re: God's eradication of evil societies

Don't recall right now but I think it was when Joshua was waging war with the corrupted nations around. I recall slave girls would be taken care of yet in other instances babies and cattle who were technically innocent were killed, which I don't understand. Look at Deuteronomy 20 again. The nations...

Re: How can we tell if there is a ghost or if it's a trick (like a bad angel or imagination)?

Saul had the Witch of Endor consult Samuel from the realm of the dead, and she was actually frightened and Samuel said stuff like he would in life. Plus he said he was disturbed. So this is an exception to the rule, how can we tell if there are more exceptions to the rule that the dead can't come b...

I do wonder why it was ok to bring slave girls though not good to keep babies or cattle from the tribes they killed off. I hope God explains because this one is rather difficult.
What are you referring to?

Isn't Stephen King a writer of eerie, dark horror fiction? Not a guy you'd think Christians would love, objectively. Then again, I enjoyed reading Edgar Allan Poe. Yes he is...

Re: Joshua's Long Day: Literal or Not?

Well, one can speculate all they want, but every Christian should realize that, with God, the miraculous is indeed possible - meaning that we shouldn't be such skeptics that we automatically discount something in Scripture couldn't have had a miraculous component. But DID it - well, sometimes we ca...
