Not so If you read the bible. It clearly states 3 facts.
1 a post tribulation rapture of the church. Matthew 24-25 chapters are extremely open about the rapture at the second coming.
2 the second coming of Jesus is AFTER those days of tribulation. It's clear!
3 Jesus Christ will reign on earth in Jerusalem with a iron rod and the nations will go up to worship him. Zechariah 14. This is a literal 1000 year reign of Jesus. Satan is bound before the 1000 years start and at the end will be set loose to deceive those who are born into the the reign. They surround Jerusalem, and then are engulfed in fire from heaven. Then there is the great white throne judgment of unbelievers. Then eternality. It's all clear in the bible. Study it brothers and sisters in Christ
Great Sermon! I just listened to Rick warrens interview and I have to say he stood firmly with the bible. He did in fact say that the bible was his one authority but other peoples authority may be something else. He is to be commended for standing firm. The interviewer was the one who seemed fickle in his faith unfortunately. I found no play if words on ricks part.
I will say this when he said there are 3 sets of law and said the 10 commandments were moral laws even in the midst of the interviewer cutting him off I stand by him on what he said. He stood by sin is sin he didn't waver at all and did not seem uncertain about homosexuality. Make sure you do all things in the context of what people are saying and not just this or that part but the whole part. Jesus is Lord. God bless
So obvious I never thought of it! People so often use the term "real world" - but really what they are referring to is the "wrong world" where God does not exist, or is just a nice heavenly essence, or He doesn't matter. I guess I just had to hear it said out loud that the real world IS the Christian world. God IS real, He IS to be glorified...that is what is real! It's so simple...praise the Lord!
Finally God's Truth is Spoken at Last! Marriage is for Life! The Bible says, â€śA wife is married to her husband as long as he lives.â€ť 1 Corinthians 7:39
The Bible does NOT say, a wife is married to her husband until she finds someone she likes better!
â€śWhosoever divorces his wife and marries another, commits adultery and he who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.â€ť Luke 16:18
Divorced people are being charged with adultery when they remarry. This means they are not free to remarry! They may believe they are free and clear when the court gives them a divorce decree that says the marriage has been dissolved but Jesus never freed them to remarry and His opinion is the only one that counts!
Divorced people are being charged with adultery upon remarriage because the Lord is not giving them freedom to enter a new marriage. Only death frees them. 1 Cor 7:39 The charge of adultery is ONLY given to people who are not married to each other. That means the remarriage is not valid to Jesus because He is actually charging them with adultery...which is sex OUTSIDE of a marriage.
Thank you Professor Engelsma for proclaiming the Word of Godâ€¦
Marriage is for Life!
