Amos 9:15 And I will plant them (Israel) upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.
Prophecy will be fulfilled! There is spiritual Israel and physical Israel, and they're both totally about GOD and not man. We gentiles are grafted in to Israel! It is not believing Jews that are grafted in. Let us not boast about the natural branches!
Hebrews 8 is all about the priesthood changing. We have a great High Priest!
Perkins, I don't think you get it! It's not really because of the education that we homeschool children. It's because of the sin, immorality, anti-GOD and humanistic teachings and "lifestyle". I DO NOT want my child learning about homosexual acts!! Read the Word of GOD! He tells us not to learn the way of the heathen. GOD is sovereign - and in His sovereignty, He has written His instructions for us in how we are to live and how we are to raise our families. I have not found any Scriptures supporting hyper-Calvanism!
Penned: It sounds like you wouldn't have a problem if you had rockets coming onto your turf in continuous random attacks. Hamas deliberately work in amongst civilians. What else can Israel do? If the USA was Israel I'd like to see how this would have been dealt with. Much harsher is my guess.
GOD didn't lie to Abraham, Isaac or Jacob. Surely?! And, to the person who thinks there are barely any true descendants of Abraham in Israel, I wonder where that rubbish comes from? GOD never divorced the southern kingdom of Judah (Jews). They are still His people! Does that mean they will all be saved? Unfortunately not. But, read your Bible - they never were in the past either.
I don't know where this rich homeschooling idea has come from. It's nothing to do with money!! It's to do with raising our children as GOD instructs us to do. If I send my kids to a public school, perhaps I should also go to gay nightclubs and heavy metal rock concerts!? Won't GOD just save me and keep me regardless of what I do (according to some of the previous comments)? No! GOD talks about protecting the children and training them to live His ways as they mature and learn to look to Him in all ways.
Totally agree!!! I can't believe the progression of immorality and perversion that Australia's public schools are displaying. Every time I see the next thing coming in I am so thankful that GOD directed us into homeschooling our children!
John, from my understanding there will be a coalition of (I think) 10 nations (currently all Muslim) that will attempt to destroy Israel but be totally routed! At a later date (Armaggedin) Israel will be surrounded by all nations, but the Messiah will be "their" salvation.
The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers. 16 Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks. - Jeremiah 16:15-16 KJV
In a recent (but rare) trip to a "Christian" bookstore, I went to look at the music section. I found pentagrams, zombies and the like on the album covers!
You can get some good stuff from these bookstores at times, but they're simply business' that are looking to sell into a certain market. As time goes by there are fewer items that are of any biblical value in my opinion.
Lurker, I have appreciated the time you've spent in your posts to me. I see that your knowledge of Scripture is wide and deep, and so respect your views.
I admit that I am seeing Scripture from a different perspective nowadays, but will always hold onto Christ and Him crucified. Without His love, death and resurrection we would have no hope, joy or peace!
Lurker, may I ask what you mean by the danger to my eternal health? I certainly don't see anything I do as gaining eternal life by merit. I live to bring both glory to GOD to show my thankfulness for all He has done.
Concerning 2 Cor 3, I'm still finding it hard to see the law being done away with. I can't see the law as being the "ministration of death" because Deuteronomy tells us that obedience to it brings LIFE! The problem is us! We are sinful. I'm thinking that this may instead be the curse of the law, where disobedience makes it a death sentence. Otherwise it's glorious (v9,11). The fact is it is even more glorious with what the messiah has done for us. We are changed from glory to glory (v18).
