Jim does Dr Rugh do all your thinking for you. The scriptures should be your rule not a mere man. 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. Hosea 1:10-11 & 2:23 with Rom9:24-26 Amos9:11-15 with Acts15:13-17 Psl22:22 with Heb2:12 Ezk36:25-27 with Acts2:14-21. And again I repeat from earlier post Eph2;14-16 3:6 4: John10:16.One body one church one faith. You can stick with Dr Rugh I will stick with the scriptures.
Marty McD wrote: what is your interpretation of these texts Mourner?
Well Marty,since I do not know the original Hebrew or Greek I don't interpret without the help of men who do. I depend on the Holy Spirit to lead me into all truth and between the pastors and teachers God has given his Church, and the translation of Scripture we have our native tongue for all to study the two men that have helped me to understand, as much as I do understand to date have been James R Willson http://covenanter.org/JRWillson/princemessiah.htm and Samuel Willies 'Two Sons of Oil'. I believe the reference is to a Gospel Ministry and A Scriptural Magistracy. In the OT Joshua was high priest and Zerubbabel was the governor of the returning remnant.
I am no FP but people do respond to Ice. Just google responses to his article. It's clear that prophetic passages are challenging, so I rest on clear passages of Scripture to avoid a Bigamist conclusion to God's Word
I agree wholeheartedly with your statement. Our rotting culture continues its downward spiral into the abyss- immorality, idolatry, greed, addiction and perversion have taken over society like unattended weeds take over a garden. Children are being raised by irresponsible parent[s], as I have witnessed this in my own neighborhood. The neighbors next door are a couple living outside the covenant of marriage with 3 boys; the dad teaches these boys how to beat each other up. The language from their young mouths cannot even be repeated here. The mother is an addict and sells drugs as well, including her kids ADHD medicine. Kids misbehave because they have no guidance or direction, then the parents stick them on psychotropic drugs to control them. May our Lord have mercy on this Godless, wicked nation; may the true Gospel go forth and the warning of impending judgment follow that truth.
If you have an e-Sword with KJV-1611 module make sure you put a copy of that off somewhere, I can no longer find that module for e-Sword! Perhaps there was a copyright problem? Ah, copyrighting a 1611 Bible -- in the USA, anyway? The same place you have the marginal notes modules you can find other modules such as the American Tract Dictionary, and a module installer. I would suggest you look over that site.
Ah, no doubt the modules there are completely legal to have, and I would say that over the decades Mr. Myers has sometimes made things difficult to run his programs (His DOS bibles never worked on a DOS emulator, and for quite awhile you couldn't get Scofield notes)
Anyway, on his latest e-Sword program I did see he does have a SermonAudio section, There's no reason you can't have more than one Bible program on your computer. I do.
Just to respond to "Barney's" post who said "...People who work in grain silos processing wheat say you would never eat any baked goods if you knew what went into the flour." People wouldn't breathe the air either? I know that God designed the human body with a remarkable ability to develop its own immunity so I wouldn't advocate vaccinations.Those who die in such situations (food poisoning or the flu for ex.)usually have compromised health to begin with. While others will experience sickness and recover from exposure to such,people who are already ill,more times than not,will die. If the picture of the food that is in the article is actually part of their potluck,they would appear to have a few fine cooks at the church.It looks pretty appetizing.(not to make lightly of the incident)...making me hungry. I just wonder which dish it was (not to embarrass the cook). Maybe something like potato salad or those tasty eggs that have been misnamed with the mustard and mayo smashed with the hard boiled egg yolks. I'm guessing that it was probably not the eggs as more people probably would have eaten them.
Great Sermon! This was a great message on the Story of Judas Iscariot, Church history and a lot more thrown in for good measure. What a theological gold mine that this class is. A Truly Great Sermon.
P. Derford wrote: "Republican presidential hopefuls are struggling with how to position themselves on same-sex marriage" America is being tested by God. Politicians are driven by ambition which is a feature of pride and thus sin. America will then be judged by her leadership - politicians! But the smell of hell is already in the Whitehouse and the Government. America has already taken the wrong path and is guilty of rejecting the law and the word of God. Rubio is already back-pedalling and has suggested that Sodom and Gomorrah is something some people are born with; quote, "that sexual preference is something that people are born with" unquote. So God and the Bible are already being put on the back shelf whilst their ambitions are satisfied. The wrath of God is being brought down upon America even harder than previously. They have failed the test. "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness" Rom 1:18.

Zech. 4:10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth.
11 Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?
12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?
13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.
14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.
Rev. 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

Maybe another analogy would help,Michael. Yours was fine...let's try this- If I may- If one eats a brownie that has just a little arsenic in it,John Y,said person will die from arsenic poisoning even though the other ingredients in it were not poisonous to begin with. Because the arsenic was mixed into the brownies,the whole brownie became tainted and warranted warning. The Jesus of the RCC is not the true Christ because His propitiation is none at all (as it needs help from the priest and Mary). There can be no propitiation (satisfaction of God's wrath)if there is an ongoing offering up and supplementary intervention. Then whatever/whomever was to serve as the propitiation has failed. Anything added to what Christ alone did,negates(erases)the work of Christ. This concept,however packaged,John Y,is BLASPHEMY! If one doesn't reject the brownie (as there are no safe particles),one dies.
I would not doubt that the Supreme Court will make a broad ruling , much like roe/ wade , to place religious freedom "in check". More than 4 of justices are either sympathetic to the gay marriage cause or gay themselves. Only this time, there won't be a correction as the U.S. government will green light christian persecution as has not been seen before. Rarely has a conflict/war come to the U.S that has been won or lost without repercussions on its minority citizenry or the least able to defend themselves against an immoral law or war.
For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christâ€™s, then you are Abrahamâ€™s offspring, heirs according to promise. (?Galatians? ?3?:?27-29? ESV)
We should know, the Church didn't displace Israel. It was built upon Israel. First there was a man (i.e. Abraham), then a family (i.e. His household), then a tribe (i.e. Jacob's), then a nation (i.e. Israel) and finally a transnational universal family (i.e. The New Testament Church). It is home to Jew and Greek alike
The old and new testament? The Old and New Covenants? The law and the prophets? The priets and the prophet? The civil magistrate and the ecclesiastical magistrate? General revelation and special revelation?
