Re: 144000 - who are they

Write: Happy are those invited to the evening meal of the Lamb’s marriage - Rev 19:9 These are not the bride, either. So, who are they? I think Luke 14:16-24 gives us an idea, but I'm admittedly confused by the difference between the bride of Christ and those invited to the evening meal of the Lamb...

Re: I finally did a deep dive of 1914....

@Peely , that had to have been the shortest post you ever wrote! :lol: Actually, you put into words what has been nagging at me for years... how can you have birth before labor pains??? I just didn't realize that was the issue for me. I just knew something wasn't right about it. I just know there's...

Re: I finally did a deep dive of 1914....

I'm with you on needing to find a simple explanation for husband. He has heard the "agree with the bible instead of historians" argument, and thinks that is the only problem with it. I am still looking for the shortest, simplest explanation for him. Is there any kind of "nutshell" explanation out t...

Re: The Twelve Apostles

The Lord did not answer their prayer? The twelve, which must have included Matthias because Paul was still an unbeliever, were working together to accomplish the ministry. This after they had received the spirit. Matthias' appointment was made through prayer and afterward when the spirit of God cam...

Re: The Twelve Apostles

It appears conclusive to me, oneapart. “And they cast their lots, and the lot fell on Matthias. And he was numbered with the eleven apostles.” Who numbered him? Men did, believing it came from God. My thoughts on this are, it wasn’t prophetically that this answer came to the other apostles, but thro...

Re: The Twelve Apostles

Hello everyone, Jesus spoke to each apostle personally, and chose them. With Matthias, the apostles cast lots to determine the choice, while with Paul, Jesus again spoke personally to him. Paul was instrumental in the the teaching and building up of the body of Christ, built on the foundation of the...

Re: The Perfection of the Mosaic Law

Anything coming from God, regarded as Holy, must be perfect. He is Holy (Isa 48:17), His Spirit is Holy (John 14:26), His Son is Holy (John 6:68,69). Leaving Quietly, the only one that I could see, brought out Rom 7:12 (Rom 7:7-12) in the previous thread. The law was a tutor of perfection that broug...

Re: The Perfection of the Mosaic Law

By the very dramatic act of torning the curtain from top to bottom, in the Temple, just after Jesus death, Yehowah showed He was done with the old ways and at Pentecost He gave his blessing to the new: in Spirit and Truth abiding worshippers, with the outpoor of the Holy Spirit as proof. My 2 cents...

Re: Torah Essay I Wrote

Peely, Please don't suppose I don't know the scripture. I love God's word, and I take great care with it. I'm kind of tired of arguing on this forum, it wasn't what I came to do. However, I do dearly miss having association, and am seeking those I can review my understanding of scripture with. So p...
