Rapture There are many verses in the bible that say we will not go through the wrath to come. 1 Thessalonians 1:9 even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come and 1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God did not appoint us to wrath but to obtain salvation though our Lord Jesus Christ. Also Romans 5:9 much more than having been justified by His blood we shall be savdfrom the wrath through Him and Ephesians 5:6 Let no one deceive you with empty words for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience and all these wraths are the same Greek word in Revelation 6:17 For the great day of His wrath has come and who is able to stand. Also in Revelation 13:7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them but in Revelation 3:4 He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments and I will not blot his name from the Book of Life and many other things in the letters to the churches for them who overcome so you really have to ask if you are going through the tribulation if you are saved.
Great Sermon! I was also disappointed you didn't mention anything about Daniel and I do believe in a per-trib rapture I think in 2 Thessalonians 2:7 is the Holy Spirit because in Matthew 16:18 the gates of hell will not prevail against the Church but in Revelation 13:7 it says "It was granted to hi to make war with the saints and to overcome them" so people will be saved in the tribulation just not as the Church but as in the Old Testament. Also if it is mid-tri I guess you are and Matthew 24:15 with the abomination of desolation which would mean the temple was rebuilt I would be looking up all the time because you would know he was coming soon with just the temple built that in itself would be a big sign of him coming soon!
Great Sermon! Excellent sermon!.....am sending to many.....I enjoy all your sermons....they are so timely and meaningful to all....would you please provide me with the name of both poems you quoted in this sermon.....will pray for your continued good sermons,
Why on earth can't the media leave those kids alone. This is wrost than stalking. Those kids need to be with family and friends, not see the nightmare run over and over on TV or have people trying to pull information about the worst day of their life. The family who loss love ones should by law have time to heal, before the media can make appoiments to see them. God bless you, Virgina Tech!
Good Day to you both, I guess I may have not made it very clear. We are sons and daughters of Christ. It is just that the word Christian comes with a long list of expectations(that is what I was implying) (this is not the issue anyway) lets stay focused and stop critising line for line what each other says. This is NOT a matter of my personal opinion.
The Lord leads us all in different directions at different times.
Again, I ask, how can a believer and a non-believer celebrate anything together and still be celebrating Jesus Christ?
As well, I will listen to HIS word only, I DO NOT HAVE AN OPINION.
John 4:23-24 -(Worship in spirit and truth) II Corinthians 6:14- "Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common?" Matthew 4:4-"Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God." II Cor. 4:4- (VERY IMPORTANT) Luke 12:32 (little flock) Rom. 8:7 (mans sinful nature) When all of the interconnected traditions, filled with the symbolism of worshipping an ancient pagan, humanly devised god, are taught, this is not worshipping the true Creator Matthew 7:16 & 20 - (by their fruits) Finally Matthew 7:24 I do not have my own opinion!I love,fearand obeyJesusChrist
A comment to all.....whether the tree is Christian based or not, the word Christian itself is manmade and has a full list of expectations to the world.
So, with that in mind I'd like to remind everyone to (Listen to your Father)
When our Father says: "Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. You Samiritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. Yet a timeis coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worsipers must workship in spirit and in truth." (John 4:21-24)
With the Lord's 'truth' in our face...
How can a Christian celebrate xmas in the same appearance as a non-believer and still think they are worshipping our Jesus Christ of the truth?
Decorated trees Jolly Fellow Santa Claus (Satan Claws) Debt Gifts to each other (not Christ) Did the heavenly angels celebrate the birth of our Saviour by collecting a tree from the earth and decorating it, then give presents to each other and invite a jolly fat red fellow? Did the wise men give presents to each other? You cannot mix lies and truth with Jesus or God!
Read the Second Commandment! This Rev. is in some serious trouble.
Even our leaders can be doing the work of demons. Be sure to read scripture, and pray & test everything mans says. Romans 3:4 "Not at all! Let God be true, and every man a liar. As it is written: "So that you may be proved right when you speak and prevail when you judge."
It makes it difficult for us to love and trust any man, but imagine how our Father feels about HIS own children. As a father loves his child today...when we come across a situation like the above mention, we can pray out of love and merci for the people we know and love dearly.
Well, if you read the bible you all should know that in the first book of Genesis, the Lord our God says we are to 'dominate' this earth and in Matthew, he also states 'thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven'.
With that being said: We are told to take care of this earth, we are the ambassadors for the government of Heaven/God, in being in this role we have the responsibility to do as our Ruler/King commands us to do.
My questions for the world to asnwer: Will there be gay behaviour in heaven? Do the saints not judge the wicked?
If it is our appointed responsibility to take care of the things of this earth, that means to take care of one another (with love). Those who choose to deliberately go against our Lords commands shall be cast out, even by us. There behaviour is not acceptable, in fact it is evil and lead by demons. The scriptures say we are to have nothing to do with them and their evil ways and thoughts or we may be deceived into accepting something that seems harmless but in the long run leads to death. You be the judge from here.
I listen to my boss, my government and I work for my government as an ambassador. I obey HIS commands so as to please HIM in HIS eyes only. I know of my soon to be inheritance for my obedience!
No human man is in heaven yet. Does anyone read the bible. There are 2 deaths. The first is a time of slumber or sleep as we all know it. The second is after Jesus returns to the earth during which time he will resurrect all that are sleeping and 'judge'them, then the final death or life judgement is made. Death is not death as we know it, but temporary sleep.
Yes, Jesus did say we are 'children of the devil' only to make clear the attitude of sin or of the negative characteristics of 'their/our' attitudes towards others. As well, we all must understand that we are born into a society that is ruled by Satan, he is reigning right now for a temporary time. One must get right with God, seek God, think God, smell God, do God and leave the things of this world to get back to the original plan...Genesis 1:26.... then He reveals truth and thisABSOLUTELY does set you free!
