Theology / Re: Should Believers Marry Unbelievers?
« Last post by Melanie on April 08, 2018, 12:09:08 PM »
Of course satan doesn't want you to go to the wedding

Actually, Satan did want her to go to the wedding, because Satan wants what God doesn't want. Satan never wants what God wants. And God doesn't want Christians giving support to believers marrying unbelievers, so why would Satan be happy if she didn't attend? That makes no sense. If she attended, Satan would jump for joy because of her indiscretion. He's made it seem like her unrighteousness is righteousness.

"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 2 Corinthians 11:14"


Satan does this by claiming that disobedience to God's word is actually doing something loving and righteous and good. Like supporting a Christian in joining in a unbiblical marriage. This is somehow made to appear righteous.

Why would satan want a bunch of prayers in the middle of his plans?

Prayers? No one goes to a wedding to pray against it, you're being ridiculous. They go to a wedding to give assent and be a witness to it. When the Pastor says if there is anyone who objects to this wedding, what is she going to do? Stand up and object? No, she's going to give assent to it by her silence. None of your arguments are biblical, logical or practical. Her prayers for a blessing in a unbiblical marriage would be a prayer of sin.

"When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin. Psalms 109:7"


If anything she should have been praying that they don't get married and counselling against it. But that's not how Christians are these days.

Theology / Re: Should Women Have Rule Over Men? Isaiah 3:12

We can be thankful that a woman is not leading this country and we have a President that supports Israel.

The only thing we can be thankful for is that God is in control. Whether Margaret Thatcher wins an election, Donald Trump or Bill Clinton.

 )Goodpoint( I would agree with that. If that wasn't true, God wouldn't have let Deborah rule his people. It doesn't mean that God wanted Thatcher or any other woman to rule over men, but he sure didn't stop her from ruling. As Reformed Christians, we always believe that God is in control whether a woman wins an election or a man. But that doesn't mean we should vote a woman into leadership position over a man.

First of all Melly, he didn't do it! He's denied all charges made by these women.

Of course he didn't do it. ...and ice is not cold.

Second, unlike Obama, he's a Christian and doing things Christians want done.

Of course he's Christian. ...and I'm Dispensationalist.

Third, he's said plainly no one has more respect for women than he does.

Of course he does.  ...and no one has more respect for the Pope than I do.

You're not in agreement with him, you're just trying to piggy back on his truth. You are anti-Israel, anti-conservative, anti-dispensational, anti-republican and pro-liberal women.

The only accurate statement you've made is that "we" are anti-dispensationalism. But yours is typical modern evangelism that attempts to conform facts to your beliefs instead of the other way around..

Eschatology / Re: The four beasts of Revelation 5 are the Elects?
« Last post by Reformer on April 06, 2018, 03:44:09 AM »

I believe that the four living creatures of Revelation 5 are symbolic of the universal church redeemed by God. The number 4 represents universality, each head represents a particular aspect of redemption, and they all praise and give glory to God. They are not beasts, they are creatures. A different word from the "Beast' of Revelation.

Eschatology / The four beasts of Revelation 5 are the Elects?
« Last post by Erik Diamond on April 05, 2018, 05:14:01 PM »

Revelation 14:1-3
[1]  And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.
[2]  And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:
[3]  And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.

Compare with:


Revelation 5:6-10
[6]  And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
[7]  And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
[8]  And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.
[9]  And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
[10]  And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

So far, although I am not fully understood, I believe that 144,000, 24 elders and four beasts must represent all Elect redeemed by Christ.  Yet, it seems that only 144,000 know the new song "before the four beasts, and the elders:"?  I understand the 144,000 and 24 elders but can anyone explain how can the four beasts also represents the Elect exactly? Is it because it is a body of Saints covered by the redemption works of Christ that the lion, calf, man and eagle represent?

Thanks

Yes and Yes. As you see now with women destroying our government with these accusation, and the harlots trying to topple the President. 

 )smileyBounce(  ;D  )smileyBounce( I don't know about harlots trying to topple the President, I would say it is more like the President cavorting mindlessly with harlots and fornicators, but that's beside the point and off topic. The only one I feel sorry for in that whole sordid matter of his Godless indiscretion is his wives. Let's move on.

First of all Melly, he didn't do it! He's denied all charges made by these women. Second, unlike Obama, he's a Christian and doing things Christians want done. Third, he's said plainly no one has more respect for women than he does. Take him at his word.

Now about women having rule over men. The answer is no, and that's why Hillary Clinton lost and you Democrats are so salty.

[Darby's Translation] (Isaiah 3:12)
[As for] my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. My people! they that guide thee mislead [thee], and destroy the way of thy paths.

We can be thankful that a woman is not leading this country and we have a President that supports Israel.

Mark it down because It will probably be the only time you and I are EVER in agreement on any religious doctrine.

You're not in agreement with him, you're just trying to piggy back on his truth. You are anti-Israel, anti-conservative, anti-dispensational, anti-republican and pro-liberal women. You supported Hillary.


Quote
God has many reasons why He commands men to rule over women.

And one is that women are the weaker vessel. That means you!!!!!

Apologetics / Re: What's the Biggest Problem for Christianity Today?
« Last post by ZeroCool on April 04, 2018, 09:01:46 AM »
That's easy. Christians are the biggest problem! And I'm not kidding. The liberal Christian left wing deniers adulterating the word, and conservative Christian right wing hypocrites justifying evil and themselves in self-righteousness. These are two sides of the same world loving coin. And we are caught in the middle as spirit filled Christians who get lumped in with these two self-serving groups and have to defend Christianity after they do damage by their Christless immorality, doctrines, views and actions.  That's my take on it.  When God said judgment must begin at my House, he knew this was coming.

 I Peter 4:17
 "For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?"

That time is upon us.
