SteveR... See Turnbul's statement. The way you talk about Israel you would think God isn't able to convert sinners. Remember, if you are a believer, you were just as much the sinner as them. Also, you were grafted into them and not the other way around. As far as a terror state, lol, because they try and protect themselves?
People why is everyone scared , we need to trust in The Lord and he will carry us through no matter what we go through . The Lord gave us a trail by putting this virus here, are we going to go crazy or are we going to continue to praise him. And remember y" all this is the beginning of the ends of times. Are you ready for Christ to come for his people, are you saved by his grace. Are you among his Chosen people? Instead of being worried about virus and other things you should worry about are you going to be among his children when he come back for his people. This should be your number one concern, them other things. Just saying..

Romans 11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes.
29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

The fact is, in that mutation it was no longer transmissible to humans. 2.) Would you REALLY trust the CDC when they have made statements like (paraphrased) "it is impossible to transmit this disease if the contaminated person is not showing symptoms..." I worked in Bioterrorism back in the early 2000's and one thing we looked at was Ebola. The fact is, like any virus, it is multiplying in the bloodstream constantly after infection and when it gets to a certain level in its host, then the person shows symptoms... However there is still plenty in the body fluids before that person shows symptoms to infect someone that is exposed to those bodily fluids. Just saying
airborne among monkeys, non-deadly to humans, not the same
Dopey, you must have seen the article that I posted at the very first since you quoted from the one in "Who's Who of Prophecy," I just clicked on the link that SA, had a being 12 years old for some reason it wasn't there! I see that Dr. Zook died also, ...Author Roy B. Zuck Dies, One of the first books at had in a Bible class was one of his, Basic Bible Interpretation. Anyway, I was able to get my copy of the Bible Commentary by Walvaard & Zook (2 Volume set) at a reduced price (my church usually sells books at reduced prices) and since it used the NIV as the reference that might also be the reason. Considering the date of those volumes it had to be a 1984 version of the NIV or earlier, so that doesn't bother me at all. Hmm, checked my bookstore and they still handle it, e.g., New Testament - The Bible Knowledge Commentary. Carrying around both tomes will build up the muscles.
I can understand why some companies like the common core mindlessness. Since the object of CC is to train children for future jobs, not educate them to be their best, companies would naturally want to save on training costs by having some of it done ahead of time. And it also reduces the issues that come up when employees can think.
WCF. 7/5. This covenant was differently administered in the time of the law and in the time of the gospel: under the law it was administered by promises, prophecies, sacrifices, circumcision, the paschal lamb, and other types and ordinances delivered to the people of the Jews, all fore-signifying Christ to come, which were for that time sufficient and efficacious, through the operation of the Spirit, to instruct and build up the elect in faith in the promised Messiah, by whom they had full remission of sins and eternal salvation; and is called the Old Testament.
6. Under the gospel, when Christ the substance was exhibited, the ordinances in which this covenant is dispensed are the preaching of the Word and the administration of the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord‚Äôs Supper; which, though fewer in number, and administered with more simplicity and less outward glory, yet in them it is held forth in more fulness, evidence, and spiritual efficacy, to all nations, both Jews and Gentiles; and is called the New Testament. *** There are not, therefore, two covenants of grace differing in substance, but one and the same under various dispensations.***

Wardel my friend, I totally agree with you. But consider these things:
Galatians 1:4 KJV
who [Jesus Christ] gave himself for our sins, so that he should deliver us out of the present evil world, according to the will of our God and Father;
Philippians 4:19 KJV
But my God shall abundantly supply all your need according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
God has declared (2 Timothy 3:16) that we live in an "evil world". Can an "evil world" provide a proper education for a child? The correct answer is no. The world tries to educate children but no matter how hard the world tries God sees what the world accomplishes as "evil" hence the word's education for children is evil.
On the other hand, God "shall supply all your need" to the saved including education. Children need an education supplied by God and they get it when they are saved,that is, born again according to Philippians 4:19.
T H Purley wrote: The "rapture" is a delusion concocted by the Plymouth Brethren in the 19th century. "We have already mentioned the Albury Park conference and the Powerscourt meetings. Darby and other leaders of the new movement attended the meetings at Powerscourt, and Darby's leadership in the area of prophetic interpretation here became evident. It was at Powerscourt that the TEACHING OF A PRETRIBULATION RAPTURE of the Church TOOK SHAPE. Tregelles, a member of the Brethren in these early days, tells us that the idea of a secret rapture at a secret coming of Christ had its origin in an "utterance" in Edward Irving's church, and that this was taken to be the voice of the Spirit. Tregelles says, "it was from that supposed revelation that the mortem doctrine and the modern phraseology respecting it arose. It came not from Holy Scripture, but from that which falsely pretended to be the Spirit of God." [S.P. Tregelles, The Hope of Christ's Second Coming 1864]"
George Muller was there as well and rightfully rejected this belief.
Follow the trail and one will see why it is the prevailing thought today. Not arrived by Scripture but by following the pastor who pushed it to their error. It exploded once D.L. Moody backed it...then Scofield...
Etymology wrote: Is the Rapture Biblical? - Definitely not. "RAPTURE:: (n.) comc.1600, "act of carrying off," from Middle French rapture, from Medieval Latin raptura "seizure, rape, kidnapping," from Latin raptus "a carrying off, abduction, snatching away; rape" (see rapt). Earliest attested use in English is of women and in 17c. it sometimes meant rape (v.), which word is a cognate of this. Sense of "spiritual ecstasy, state of mental transport" first recorded c.1600 (raptures)." (Etymological Dictionary) Even the word itself had to be redefined by Darby and co.
It's a bad habit frequently shared by allegorists.
Lurker, you know the funny thing is, we are trying to lead them to the Lamb's Supper and they are holding on to pictures and shadows and resent the fact we would try to take the pictures and shadows away. not that I don't understand. there is as lure to sin, someone says you must let it go and turn to Christ, but they want to hold onto the sin. and so with any group that has such pride that they want all the earthly rewards of God but to reject His Son. Its a wide chasm that only Christ can correct. Where is the glory of Christ and the manifestation of the power of the Holy Spirit? They can only see God's hand in their spears...
