The Bible teaches that the 'Jews' will pine away in the enemies land until they repent of their trespass against the Lord. I don't know that they have repented of killing God's Son. Leviticus 26:38-42 38 And ye shall perish among the heathen, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up.
39 And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquity in your enemies' lands; and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them.
40 If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me;
41 And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity:
42 Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the LAND.
Deut 29 is very interest to read concerning this especially verse 23 where it talk of the land as Sodom and Gamorah in light of the verse Revelation 11:8 And their dead bodies...great city..spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

Homosexual men entered seminary to become priests in order to hide the fact that they were homosexual.
Or it is a fulfilment of scripture as Catholic 'preist' don't like to retain knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a reprobate mind!: Romans 1:28-29
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
What happens when you teach doctrine of devils. 1 Timothy 4:1-3
4 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
John Yurich USA wrote: That is absolute nonsense that there are any scriptural aspects of the services of the JW and Mormon Cults. There is nothing scriptural about the JW and Mormon Cults as they deny that Jesus is God and thus do not worship the biblical and historical Jesus. The only God I have is the God of the Bible as I surrendered my life to Christ and trust entirely in Him alone for salvation. The only Jesus I have always believed in and worshipped has been the biblical and historical Jesus. Naturally during worship services at that Baptist Church I attend on Sunday mornings the Lord Jesus Christ is worshipped and praised.
You say you worship God at that Catholic Church though they do not preach the truth about God.
John 4:24King James Version (KJV)
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
The Bible says you MUST worship God in truth but you say you don't have to. The Catholic Church with their other gospel (which you admitt)does not worship God according to the Bible.
So are you saying baptism the PICTURE of the death and resurrection of Christ saves a man?
Sorry I don't speak Greek but I know what that passage teaches though. Maybe your comment doesn't really reflect what your message seemed to have said. I like being as easy to understand as possible in plain English so as not to be misunderstood.
baptism now saves you wrote: Corresponding to that, baptism now saves youâ€”not the removal of dirt from the flesh, but an appeal to God [a]for a good conscienceâ€”through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 1 Peter 3:21
1 Peter 3:21King James Version (KJV)
21 The LIKE FIGURE whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
What is this LIKE figure:
Romans 6 3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
5 For if we have been planted together in the LIKENESS of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
This is a picture of that union of Christ and His church that saves. Baptism is a picture of this. I'd stick with the KJV it is more accurate and will help in your studies.
It is not the likeness that saves the the spiritual reality which is being found in Christ saves, submersed/placed into Christ. See Romans 8:1 etc..
Hey Ladybug how are you sister? I have been doing good busy with school and I'm helping lead a bible study at my school. I still read your comments and think of you all often. College is crazy you see some of this stuff you see in the news play out before your eyes. We had a booth for our christian group and we were right next to the LGBT booth. I have to read liberal articles for one of my classes and write about them. Any prayers would be helpful.
Hey Paul enjoy your comments. Try to help John out maybe it will be his time to hear the truth but he's been given literally at least hundreds if not thousands of comments to help and there is a time when you should let your peace come back to you.
I liked what you said in an earlier comment Ladybug that God's word will not return void. If John is to hear the truth it will be 'when it pleased God' as Paul states.
Connor7 wrote: There's no question on whether or not Adam and Eve had a freewill, but their will, their nature, was to love God...
Hey Connor you have to remember that Christ had a chosen people before the world began so could Adam really of just not ate? Read this verse carefully:
17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: FOR IN THE DAY that THOU EATEST thereof thou shalt surely die.
God says in the day you eat not if you eat now look at the wording closely of Gen 3:5. This is a mystery and it's about the sovereignty of God just as wicked men Crucified Jesus exactly according to the scriptures. God and Adam had a close relationship. God had left Adam to himself when he fell that's why you have Adam hearing God call him:
9 And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
This is a picture of what man will do when God is not with him. I think all God had to do for Adam to fall is leave Him on his own it's the same for us as well. You might have a hard time figuring it out because I don't think we can comprehend. God is sovereign in all things and God works all things after the council of His own will Eph 1:11.

Until then..Israel to their tents!
5 Likewise greet the church that is in their house. Salute my well-beloved Epaenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia unto Christ.

John Yurich USA wrote: I believe the RCC teaches a different gospel, that it denies salvation on the Merits of Christ alone, that it denies the sufficiency of Christ's Atonement, that it denies Christ's Sacrifice is Finished and that it demands submission to "mediators" other than Christ.
8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
You admit they teach another Gospel and the Bible says let them be accursed and you worship with them! Nonsense.

Should any one be disposed to insist that the apostolic churches were in the use of hymns besides those contained in the Scriptures, the burden of proof lies upon him..."
Isaiah 42:10 â€śSing unto the LORD a NEW SONG, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.â€ť
It clearly says sing a NEW SONG now you show me where it's says sing only old songs the burden of proof is on you.
I see it that if you show what Christ has done for them they will want to please God and they will conform themselves to the Word of God. They are told that they are completely free and now they serve in gratitude not in 'obligation'. You think that if you tell them they are free they'll go out and sin I don't believe this to be the case. I would tell them if the Law had anything to do with them they shall surely die this being the Ministration of death. You bring up a very appropriate situation you search the scripture and he comes up with this verse on divorce:
24 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.
Do you tell him this is the law he is under?
The OT suffered it to be so lawfully. Your gonna have a contradiction if you tell him he is under the Law of Moses on this subject. Best tell him to look to Christ.
The consequences of not walking up rightly are a separation from your relationship with God and a child of God should be able to feel this and want to change(from my experience).
Hello 2 Tim. In Romans 7 Paul says that the law has dominion over a person as long as he lives but he said it killed him. He compares the law to the law of a husband. After a husband dies what part of the husbands law are you still bound to?
Read 1 Tim in context he is actually rebuking those who try to tell Christians to look to the law he calls in vain jaingling:
1 Tim 6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
The rigtheous man that he is talking about is Christians which he says the law is not for.
If I told you that not one word will pass from something TILL 5, what do you think will happen at 5? Jesus said not a letter will pass TILL all be fulfilled. Did not Jesus fulfil all? Matthew 5:18
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, TILL all be FULFILLED.
In Matthew 5:19 one of THESE Commandments is the commands Jesus gives in the following verses.
No more room to address those other verses. --- John as I have said all scripture is profitable for teaching in righteousness 2 Tim 3:16 but you have not heard what I have said many times.
John UK wrote: 1.With the moral laws broken, there was need for the sacrificial laws, which provided forgiveness and reconciliation through the "shadow" sacrifices - millions of animals killed - picturing Christ. Note, 1689 Baptist ch19 2. 5. The moral law.. any way dissolve, but much strengthen this obligation. 3.Although true believers be not under..it is of great use to them..as a rule of life..
1. Hebrews 10:4
4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
2. The obligation to the law does not seperate itself from its curse, we are unable to fulfill any obligation of the law:
11 And I gave them my statutes, and shewed them my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them.
Gal 3:12 12 And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.
Gal 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written: â€śCursed is every one who continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
This is why the law is put away it is the ministration of death.
3. I can agree with the part I left. Use bible verses it's more helpful bro. I'm going to hang out with my wife now. Have a greatday
