Why not now? if Angels and humans had children in the past why don't we see it happening after that? Was it only a special kind of angel that no longer roams the earth? Did God neuter the Angels after this episode?
Sadly, I think this is just one of those topics we will never fully understand and because of that it can just get weird.
Great Sermon! Both Scofield and John MacArthur interprets Matt 16:28 refers to Matt 17:1-2. MacArthur translate "kingdom" to mean "royal splendor". If this is correct, and Christ is saying in Matthew "Son of man coming in his royal splendor". And in Mark and Luke, Christ is saying "until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power in Mark or as in Luke "until they see the kingdom of God. It seems to me but anyone can exegete Matt 16:28, they have to be reconcile Mark and Luke? I will be listening to your teaching on Wed.
Great Sermon! I previously posted a question on Matt 17 about after 6 days or on or about 8 days (Luke). After thinking about it, I think I understand, after 6 days could mean 7 or 8 and on or about 8 could mean 7 or 8. Just proves further that this was Spirit inspired writing of 4 individuals, they didnt copy each other or compared notes.
Great Discussion Just add another thought to your News in Focus discussion, if I may. Taking verses out of context or applying them where they dont apply, is not this where rightly dividing the word of God applies. 2 Peter 3:9 is always the first one I think of.
Some are doing it right Found this interesting:
Rick Warren â€“ Saddleback Church
Has made tens of millions off his book sales (it could be in the hundreds). Howeverâ€¦ Warrenhas made so much money that in 2005 he repaid all of his 25 years of salary to the church & stopped taking any new salary. He and his wife give away 91% of their income to charity. Rick is the only one doing it right â€“ in my opinion.
Great Sermon! But, the question remains, where and who are the 10 lost tribes (lost to us but not to God). If you interpret scripture literally, where it is plain teaching, then Ezekiel clearly states the regathering of ALL 12 tribes (future). So they are out there. But, if you believe on replacement/covenant theology, they do not exist anymore.
Combatting the black helicoptors Thoroughly enjoyed the discussion. Some of the things evangelicals are willing to swallow still amazes me. Willing to take their theology from a heretic instead of digging through the Word of God and measuring their ideas against proven orthodox doctrine and men of God. Thank you gentlemen for dismantling this absurd notion.
Thank you for your faithfulness People today are so ready to give anyone a pass who says they are speaking for the LORD. Thank you for reminding us that the LORD, who moved men under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to write His Word and called us to be wise as serpents yet gentle as doves, calls us to use discernment when men come proclaiming to be from Him. We are to be good Bereans. Thank you for taking a stand on the Word of God in a time where measuring someone words against Scripture is, by todays culture, mean and hateful. Everyday we see more and more, 2 Timothy 4:3,4 and Romans 1:18-32 being played out.
Interesting, but I disagree on some points I think many modern believers have an oversimplified take on the separation of Church and state. I don't think it is wrong to allow clerks to opt out of issuing liscences. I'm very tired of Christians using the "logic" of lesser evils justifying greater ones (such as if you marry divorcees you should marry gays or if you bake Halloween cakes you should bake for any LGBT cause). By this rationale no sin should ever be reproved, for we all pick and choose battles to a point. We need strength, not excuses. There is never anything wrong with taking a godly stand, despite past failures.
Anyway, may God bless everyone.
Thank you for broadcasting.
Hope for the thick headed I love the ties to Exodus and Moses.
I had never looked at the name Simon Bar-Jonah. The reluctant prophet to the Ninevites. The parallels are staggering. May even be a stretch, but comparison to Jonah's response and Peter's response in Acts 10. Peter is told to kill and eat, directly from the Lord, and Peter argues. Boy, there is such hope for a hard headed man as myself. Thank Jesus for His Grace and Mercies. As hard as I try and wiggle out of His hands, I will never be able to break His grip.
Great Sermon! The better course of action to me would be to completely removed the American and state flag (if they were flying it) and either only fly the Christian flag or nothing at all. Until we can order an outdoor Christian flag, our American flag has come down from our house and will not go back up. I, for one, would be in complete support of taking the American flag off the campus pole and out of the sanctuary if done in a respectful manner.
