Jim, I think I might have misunderstood your statement. This has become even more puzzling as I continue to study. Regardless, as part of His royal nation, I will continue to sing praises to God.

Catholics should be told to either fall in line with Catholic teaching and be against abortion, homosexuality and artificial birth control or be excommunicated from the Catholic Church.
Christ purchased the "Church" with his own blood (Acts 20:28), and he should be given pre eminence in HIS CHURCH by preaching Christ crucified He is the power of God, and the wisdom of God (1 Cor 1:23,24). Further, why can't they simply go to confession as taught? Is it because the person in the Confessional has nothing efficacious to impart and to motivate that confessing individual to repent and lead a godly life? I thank God, that nothing will ever separate me from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus who did what I could not do. This makes me want to live for and unto him who died for me.
"Something that so infuriated the Pope that after Wycliffe had died he orders his bones dug up, crushed and thrown into the river." And, wasn't this after he had been buried 300 years? Correct me if I'm in error. The problem with RCC is that they foist their heretical "teaching" on the masses. Hardly do they say "Thus says the LORD." It seems to be the teaching of the church.
"John for JESUS[/AUTHOR]If the promises to Israel have been revoked by God, I suppose Jesus won't be coming back either. Perhaps Jesus is no longer the first born among many brethren because God revoked that promise also.[/QUOTE]The most thorough exegesis of Revelation is done by Pastor Rick Knapp of Tetelestai Church.org. There is series you will find interesting due to fresh and new insights. He causes the hearer to think and study. Yes, ‚Äústudy.‚ÄĚ He restores thinking to believers. Prior this he did an extensive study on the IOG; Israel of God.

Amen. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. See today's posted sermon "Sour Grapes"by Liam Goligher. You'll be glad you did.
An Everlasting Melody I encourage everyone to listen intently.
The passion that comes forth in this sermon brings us into prayer and unto repentance once again. Messages like this one converts the soul again and again; drawing us closer and closer to the Son of God's love. It causes us to be forks in the road, while keeping us from saying, with the wicked, "CRUCIFY HIM!"
Psalm 115:1,2 Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.
Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?
Jeremiah 9:17-25 tells us that it is time for tears. It is a time for prayer for the nation. It is time for us to repent and seek the LORD. Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.
Isaiah 58:1 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. May our tears be like the flood of Noah's day that washes away the filth of the earth and brings forth fruits of righteousness. Pray for the children. May God give us the knees of camels until Christ has pre eminence in His Church.

These are days we should do less talking and enter into prayer for those who are suffering. Also, that an effectual door open for those who feet are shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace. PRAY Pray for them that are in bonds.unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, (Eph. 3:20) The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5:16) If we fail to go before God in prayer, we are simply puffing up another with knowledge that sensationalizes.

What do you do with a future What About God's Promises to Israel?[/URL][/QUOTE]True Israel are those of many ethnic groups; from the four corners of the earth. They have been chosen just as Jacob was (with the promise) above Esau. There is only one Gospel. Abraham heard it. Noah heard it. Saul of Tarsus heard it. It is the Gospel of God's dear Son. Gal 6:15,16 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.
This is the rule that all believers live by - Galatians 6:16; What about Israel? They have to hear the Gospel and believe.
