"... neutralized Christianity, leaving the Chinese ‚Äúhelpless against the military onslaught of the Communists.‚ÄĚ Fully expecting an imminent ‚Äúrapture,‚ÄĚ multitudes of Chinese Christians were tortured and slaughtered. On the other hand, non-millenarians fled. Hiding safely in the mountains, they kept Chinese Christianity alive."
was just talking with a loved one who had seen a BBC interview.
it seems the Chinese gov has noticed that Christianity forms a kind of moralism and so Chinese pastors are discussing a kind of reformation that is not as hard core that can assimilate itself into mainstream society there, using America as its model.. so they are set to compromise like the American churches do. and once they taste the riches they will also reject those who are empowered by the Spirit to reveal the modern idols that dominate so much of our spirituality or inner lives.
she was not protected with biosafety level 4 gear....
which is what they use in the high tech biolabs where they engineer this stuff.
and even in those labs, outbreaks are common, and then they do research on those that have been infected by the outbreak, ain't that nice?
they dug up the 1918 pandemic, I don't know if that was the body that was frozen still in cold ground. people will think this is made up, the idea that we have been safely "testing" this kind of thing is just not true, they've never truly had these things contained, and the major nations have bioweaponized these organisms, and spliced and diced them with other organisms for vaccines. there is a Warburg/ebola vaccine out there right now made with the rabies virus available for pets or they hope to?
I'm not sure if this is just fear mongering to get people to take their vaccines, as we saw in the 2009 pandemic that wasn't, because there is video going around of a guy complaining that his loved one wasn't getting help in some African hospital and the guy looks perfectly fine, just rolling around and the guy walks off with a load of cash, its quite funny actually. another of a kid posing as if he's dying but you can actually see him smiling, running before the pose, so what's up?
many call it "inaugurated eschatology". the idea of this is that Christ came, Christ died, Christ rose from the dead. The Kingdom of God has come and is being realized until His return. The time of Christian persecution starts at the cross and continues.
there's the present age and the age to come.
Ephesians says that we are presently with Him in the heavenlies, but we are also waiting for Him.
Beale has put out commentary on inaugurated eschatology (amill, doesn't necessarily describe it well) --- sorry for no links, as I'm not finding a good one at the moment.
Dorcas has been putting some links out that have helped me in the past. I still have one sitting here that I printed out, that has many scriptures. Thanks Dorcas.
1517 wrote: Scripture is inerrant, non-contradicting, and self-intrpreting. Re-read the dialogue between God and Abraham and subsequent action taken upon Sodom and Gommorah. God does not give second chances, and He administers wrath when no righteous reside. When He comes for His children, He will simultaneously judge the world.There will not be a world without the presence of the righteous. Christ will certainly " rapture" or gather His flock, but will not leave the world to the goats for some extended amount of time, then come back...again. That would be s third coming. Unbiblical.
bioresearch labs actually do manufacture the organisms in their labs for their experimentation. and they genetically modify them as well. its an entire industry that our gm grains, vaccines and disease is based off of.
there's stories every once in awhile about the transport of these organisms and risks that are taken as scientists from different nations share their goods, there's stories of hurricanes hitting testing facilities causing compromise all kinds of things. its like the mad scientists playing god.
well, they also genetically modify human cells to reproduce people and inject animal dna into plant dna and vice versa.
but don't worry.... its all for your good
so billions of dollars rest in these things, hey the whole tv industry is paid for by pharma advertisements! you'd think that drugs and syringes are what makes the world go round!!
John for Jesus, that was an interesting reply. You say Gentiles are grafted in through faith. I too believe this is so. Do you believe Jews are grafted in by faith or by works or by race? Do you think an atheist, for instance can inherit the Kingdom of God? are you saved through the blood of Christ or by another means, if you don't mind clarifying....
