Statement of Faith
The Seventieth Week
If there is any topic you guys want to discuss, be sure to ask and I will do my best to answer it.
Regarding your question on Telegram, I don’t think it’s something I need to see for you to have guests. I absolutely love your writing & seeing you on other shows. If having guests takes away from your writing, I like things as they are now.
I apologize for asking 2 questions in 1 week.
On Preterism. I had never heard of it until recently. The new Pastor (and others) in a church I once attended are preterists. From what I've heard from many in the pre-trib community it's not a salvation issue (?), but I find it concerning. With not seeing current events as prophetic, I'm not sure they share our sense of urgency about salvation or are offering guidance on how to handle these 70th week birth pangs.
Maybe I'm overthinking it. I appreciate your time.
I've been trying to download the Rev310 App but it doesn't come up in the Apple App Store or your "Get the App" header/button.
Forgive me if I'm missing something!
Question: Why is the book of Enoch not in the Bible?
Thanks for your reply. I also don't believe in apostles and prophets today either, only those in the bible. My husband had the same reply about the clock. Everything seems very surreal these days and my heart is heavy for the things to come for those left behind. I hope many will find your book to explain what has happened. I will be passing out a few.
I was Pentecostal at the start, so I know what they mean to be speaking in tongues.
Also was a mission/relief worker for a few yrs. Heard a story of an American who went to do missions where no English was spoken. He had a an indigenous English speaking guide however.
One day he came upon a resident and the missionary and he had a good conversation, regarding salvation etc.
When the guide heard this he asked "what language were each of you speaking in, the missionary said English.
The guide said I know that man and he only speaks our native language.
Each understood the other. This truly is speaking in tongues.
I guess you could say I’m cessationist in the sense that we no longer have prophets and apostles going around doing miracles or needing things like speaking in tongues inside church services.
However, I also believe that God can still speak to us thru dreams and visions. If that were my dream, my take away would be that time is near at hand (your stone clock) and that our nation’s days are numbered.
Dream question- I had a dream in 2013 I cannot forget and another in 2020 similar. Both vivid and as if I had last night. To the point, the first was our nation was attacked by surprise and Noah's ark appeared in the sky at the same moment and the second was a spiritual clock, set in stone, being lowered from heaven and was at the level between short and tall skyscrapers. I have had others, not many, that provided guidance and happened as dreamed but were about personal life andh not national. I would like to think I am grounded in sound doctrine and realize many seek signs, etc. My KJV says no man can see God and live and I believe it. Can you please address why so many are claiming to have dreams or is it because they are subjective (BSN)? I do believe what I saw will happen just as the previous did.
Hi, I just became a member today and wanted to work on my profile, but nothing Happens when I place a photo or change the name. Would anyone have any idea why?
This is on the Torah and Christianity. I have heard that some dispensationalists believe that the Torah is no longer relevant. I am confused because then I have to ponder why God would bother to include it in His love letter to us, and continually speak of it if it wasn't relevant.
I believe that when Jesus says to obey Him, He is speaking of obeying ALL of God's Words and not just those spoken in the "New Testament" written after He came in the flesh. Salvation is by grace through faith, I firmly believe and understand that. While the Law doesn't save us, it does keep us obedient until the end. For me, keeping the law requires me to walk in the Spirit while sojourning in this great big world God created until He calls me home.
My question will be twofold, do you believe that the law is still a vital part of a believers walk with Christ? If not, why?
I agree with all those points. I tend to lean Terry's way too. And maybe they're not all that far off...I could have misunderstood what I thought Don was saying.
What sticks out is that he seemed to make a distinction between all who are saved versus those considered the Bride. The only difference I see is everyone up until the Rapture versus those during the Tribulation. He made some point about only those full of the Holy Spirit who had given their life to Jesus deliberately would be the Bride and those others saved (category of innocence) would not be the Bride even though they are saved.
Maybe we can't know the details because it's all kind of an argument from silence, as the Bible is not clear.
Thanks for letting me bounce it off you! I may just decide to not worry too much about it. :)
I lean Terry James’s way regarding children and the Rapture. As far as them not being in the “Church,” I don’t know how that will all shake out. I think given the manner of their physical salvation (ie Rapture), they would be included. Just like the children who died as children in the OT were likely taken to Abraham’s Bosom, they are included with the OT Saints. Granted, this is all speculatory, however, I believe God grants those who can’t make a decision for themselves, or, isn’t old enough to understand, to be in a category of innocence, like Adam and Eve before the fall.
Hey! So, I had never heard of Don Koenig until you mentioned him in a recent post. I've since read a few of his entries and like what he has to say. I was reading some stuff that I hadn't thought about before and wondered if you wanted to address it.
It was some comments on one of his posts about children being raptured or not and a reference to 1Co 7:14. And then he specified a difference between those who will be saved versus those who are the Bride. I had never thought to break it all down like that before. Terry James wrote a compelling post on Rapture Ready not too long ago regarding all children being raptured. Don seemed to think that wouldn't be true. I was wondering which way you think. Also, I am baffled by the meaning of 1Co 7:14. I've never really put any study to it. And, I, of course, realize that those saved after the Rapture during the Tribulation won't be considered the Bride of Christ. It had never occurred to me that children likely won't be either, even if they are raptured with believing parents. Makes sense, but I've never really studied the minutae of these details.
Wanna tackle it?
