Amen Dorcas. It thrilled me so much, that I felt I should share it here with all my friends. And Amen also, that we are still living in the Day of Grace, when we are permitted to always hope for the salvation of others, even for those who seem so hardened against the gospel. We know that the Lord's arm is not shortened that he cannot save. Sure he can save, and that, in an instant. All glory be to God who can do a transforming work in a rebellious sinner's heart.
Coming to the meeting regularly on a Sunday night, is an elderly retired minister (an Irishman), a lovely Christian who is very gracious. I heard after this evening's meeting of a Catholic priest in Londonderry NI who visited this my friend requesting prayer. And did he pray for this dear priest!! He not only prayed but also shared the gospel message with him, and the priest got converted.
Now that was a wonderful thing to happen. But it took several years of prayer and thinking and learning by the ministry of the Holy Ghost and the reading of scripture to convince this priest that he needed to come out of the RCC and cease his deceptive ministry of the mass, confessions etc. But he came out eventually, praise God!
Such is the terrible hold over men that the RCC can wield. But when any man is born again, and who genuinely seeks after the truth, seeking to serve the Lord Jesus Christ aright, the Lord will enlighten his mind and show him the evils of popery and lead him away from there, never to return.
It just goes to show that no-one is beyond the pale, but we must always be ready and willing to pray with people and tell them the true liberating gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Ah yes, Penny, that be it. The everlasting gospel shall be proclaimed until the door be shut, which is the very last day for this poor world. All men, whether they be Jews or non-Jews, need to realise that now is the accepted time, now is the day of salvation. Now is the time to get on board the ark (Jesus Christ) for the day of wrath is fast approaching, which will take them all away who refused Jesus as Messiah.
I read through the article and they seem confused.
After their failed wores with millions dead, with persecution coming on the land and no rapture, you'd think they would get back to the new covenant so clearly written in the scriptures.
"they are united in the belief that God's covenants with Israel were not displaced by Jesus Christ and the Church." -- in other words, why would we let Christ displace our plans for the land? Christ is subservient to man???

Jim, there are many prayers offered such as this "forgive them, Lord, for they do not know what they do." as for pulling any concept of forced medication on any group of people, anyone could make up pretty much anything. for instance, I could become tyrant of the world and mandate that for any one who is not young is a danger to society, people become more susceptible to illness, which apparently makes them a sort of scapegoat class, and in order to walk into a church building they must take 30-40 shots of vaccines. I mean all of the youthful ones could just line em up and medicate them. sounds so shocking but that is exactly what we are doing to our youth, why not let them return the favor? such as it is with strong arming each other. Its never kind and it always leads to terrible things. maybe jauntering back and forth is a hobby for you.
And what if the protestors are a ruse to claim persecution or just high schools kids being high school kids. Generally, most don't take much things serious unless it's sports , video games, the opposite sex "ye gads" and not going to school.
Hey Elmer Why don't you take a leaf out of your own religious ostentations and become a nun? Article says ""There is a gap in the market for meaning in our culture and one of the ways in which women may find that meaning is through religious life," said Father Christopher Jamison, director of the vocations office of the Catholic Church in England and Wales."

I give you scriptures which show that the promises of the O/T are fulfilled with the bringing in of the Gentiles. Fulfilled NOT replacement. ....One body one church one faith. You can stick with Dr Rugh I will stick with the scriptures.
No, I let Dr. Ice, do some of it.
Dr. Thomas Ice wrote: The heart of this error is based on Jesus' statement that "this generation shall not pass, till all things be fulfilled" (Mat 24:34). It seems easy enough to claim Jesus was speaking about a first-century generation; however, logic ends there when one contemplates the fulfillment of all Bible prophecy.
In order to make 70 AD the magic year, we would have to delete dozens of prophecies that were never fulfilled. When was the Gospel preached to all the nations? When was the Mark of the Beast implemented? What about China's 200-million-man army? When did 100-pound hailstones fall from the sky? And what date was it when the Euphrates River dried up?
Lots of worthless chatter on SA the last few days (usually every day). Maybe you all should make better use of your time and go be with the brethren you claim to have on a daily basis. And since you probably don't understand that, at least you can do is go and quietly learn how to exercise the love of Christ and how to obey his non-grievous commandments.
"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, AS YE SEE THE DAY APPROACHING."
So all you any-moment-Christ-returning pre-tribbing fanatics should especially heed daily exortation with the brethren! (if you wanna be consistent with your false doctrine)
So, enough with your pet false doctrines, your wage-slave jobs, your sorceries, your political gods, your military murderers, your commandments of men, and the word-choking political propaganda here on SA and everywhere else. Be DOERS! Or you won't be known by Christ, and therefore cast into everlasting fire.
