1. So the term 'sabbath days' in this verse:
16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
You don't believe means sabbath days?
2. The manna typifies Jesus Christ and to 'live' by Him alone:
John 6:58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
The rest typifies:
Hebrews 4 4 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. 2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. 3 For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the WORKS were FINISHED from the foundation of the WORLD.
It won't be long and the rest of the world will become like Roman Catholicism and Islam, and this won't be big news as they'll succeed in dropping the age of consent, it's 16 here, which I believe is too young.
Thankyou John. ūüėä I hope you don't mind, but I'm very excited about your baptism, and I pray much for you. Off topic, John do you play the song " there is power,in the blood of the lamb" just wondering is all, I love that song. And are you washed in the blood of the lamb.

Naturally I do not believe the Pope or any Catholic priest can absolve sin. That is why I never go to confession. I confess my sins directly to Jesus every night when I go to bed. There are 2 definitions of the word anti-Christ. The word Anti-Christ with an upper case A denotes the Anti-Christ who will come on the scene at the time of the Great Tribulation Period. The word anti-Christ with a lower case a denotes the many anti-christs who are around. So the Pope is an anti-Christ with a lower case a and not the Anti-Christ with an upper case A.
Good stuff, but why defend your position using a wolf in Sheri's clothing as your backdrop? I agree about Christians being targeted. But do you really wish for someone who misrepresents god's word public talk time anyway? Mix in a bit god, and it doesn't matter else is said, so let's defend him?

¬† (1) The sabbath ("cessation") appears in Scripture as the day of God's rest in the finished work of creation. # Ge 2:2,3 ¬† For 2500 years of human life absolutely no mention is made of it.¬†¬† Then the sabbath was revealed # Ex 16:23 Ne 9:13,14 ¬† made a part of the law # Ex 20:8-11 ¬† and invested with the character of a "sign" between Jehovah and Israel, and a perpetual reminder to Israel of their separation to God # Ex 31:13-17 ¬† It was observed by complete rest # Ex 35:2,3 ¬† and by Jehovah's express order a man was put to death for gathering sticks on the sabbath day. # Nu 15:32-36 ¬† Apart from maintaining the continued burnt-offering # Nu 28:9 ¬† and its connection with the annual feasts # Ex 12:16 Le 23:3,8 Nu 28:5 ¬† the seventh day sabbath was never made a day of sacrifice, worship, or any manner of religious service.¬† It was simply and only a day of complete rest for man and beast, a humane provision for man's needs.¬† In Christ's words, "The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath." # Mr 2:27 ¬† (2) Our Lord found the observance of the day encrusted with rabbinical ¬† evasions¬† ---Continued
# Mt 12:2 ¬† and restrictions, wholly unknown to the law, so that He was Himself was held to be a sabbath breaker by the religious authorities of the time.¬† The sabbath will be again observed during the kingdom age # Isa 66:23¬†¬† (3) The Christian first day perpetuates in the dispensation of grace the principle that one-seventh of the time is especially sacred, but in all other respects is in contrast with the sabbath. One is the seventh day, the other the first. The sabbath commemorates God's creation rest, the first day Christ's resurrection. On the seventh¬† day God rested, on the first day Christ was ceaselessly active. The sabbath commemorates a finished creation, the first day a finished redemption. The sabbath was a day of legal obligation, the first day one of voluntary worship and service. The sabbath is mentioned in the Acts only in connection with the Jews, and in the rest of the N.T. but twice. # Col 2:16 Heb 4:4 ¬† In these passages the seventh day sabbath is explained to be to the Christian not a day to be observed, but a type of the present rest into which he enters when "he also ceases from his own works" and trusts Christ.
John Yurich USA wrote: The Anti-Christ will be a man and not the seat of the Papacy. So it is against the Bible to state that the Pope is the Anti-Christ when the Anti-Christ will not come on the scene until the Great Tribulation Period.
I will point this out, John.
"We are not the first to declare the papacy to be the kingdom of Antichrist, since for many years before us so many and such great men (whose number is large and whose memory is eternal) have undertaken to express the same thing so clearly and plainly."---Martin Luther as quoted in http://tinyurl.com/gw2htf8 (Mystery Babylon Identified--PDF)
"The Popes have imagined an Antichrist, who for three years and a half is to harass the Church. All the marks by which the Spirit of God has pointed out Antichrist, clearly appear in the Pope; but the triennial Antichrist lays fast hold on the foolish Papists, so that seeing they do not see. Let us then remember, that Antichrist has not only been announced by the Spirit of God, but that also the marks by which he may be distinguished have been mentioned." (J.Calvin)
Blasphemy - Idolatry - Heresy - Deception - Are all in the Roman Catholic church.
The central 'seat' of that blasphemous and idolatrous church is the Papacy.
The RCC is focused throughout its idolatrous organisation upon the Papacy. Thus the Papacy is a 'centre' of idolatry, heresy and deception. This points to the seat of all that is anti-Christ - Hence THE papal Antichrist.
"2Thes 2:3. (Paul) first predicts a defection that would prevail through the whole Church, as a universal evil; he then makes the head of the apostasy the adversary of Christ, who would sit in the temple of God, claiming for himself divinity and divine honors. Except we desire willfully to err, we may learn from Paul's description to know Antichrist."
Jim Lincoln wrote: The sabbath will always be Saturday
Sabbath in Hebrew means 'intermission'/cessation from, or rest: it does not mean Saturday. The idea is a break of one day in a seven day cycle.
See the pattern in God providing the manna: "Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the sabbath, (the day of rest, cessation, or intermission) in it there shall be none" Ex 16:26
The day of rest not only exists due to the work of creation, but it typified the rest from Egypt's bondage, a parallel of the believer's in the NT also:
"... the seventh day is the sabbath (rest, cessation) of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor ... *nor thy stranger* (notice the universal) that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.
And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the LORD thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm" Deu 5
