The world has never had a complete Bible of the Old and New Testaments in the original manuscript order of the biblical books. The variety of actual arrangements is quite surprising, and rarely mentioned by current textual critics.
Given the overwhelming evidence that the actual historical documents exhibit nothing like the uniform sequence that Martin suggested in his second paragraph, we could wonder if he was simply ignorant of the evidence, or if perhaps his zeal had caused him to accidentally overstate his case in that one instance. Almost all the Greek-speaking ecclesiastical authorities from the areas of Palestine, Syria, Asia Minor, and Greece refer to the books of the New Testament and they do so in the proper manuscript arrangement. The ignorant might be impressed by these eight witnesses, but those familiar with textual criticism recognize them as a small minority cherry-picked from a much larger set containing many variations. Martin cited information from this table, so we know he was not ignorant of the wide variations in the manuscript order.
At this point it seems appropriate to summarize the writings of the New Testament which have already been mentioned. The final step required to produce Martin’s hybrid Bible is itself a hybrid of the modern Jewish Tanakh with a novel method of counting the books. These 22 books of the Old Testament (and their arrangement as indicated above) should be the standard canon followed by every version of the Bible today. Martin’s list follows the exact order of the modern Jewish Tanakh but it differs in the way he enumerates them. There are strong reasons to believe that the twenty-four-book list actually preceded the twenty-two-book list and that the latter was fashioned after the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet. Contrary to McDonald’s reasoned approach, Martin states his assertions dogmatically with little or no documentary support. The total number of books is 49 = 7 x 7, and the Number 7 is the numerical symbol of completion and perfection in the Bible. The books are perfectly balanced: there are 22 books on either side of the five central books and there are 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet from Aleph (?) to Tav (?). There are seven subdivisions of the 49 books, three on either side of the central group of five books. At first glance, the symmetry of Martin’s arrangement seems to be a strong confirmation of its validity over that of the traditional Christian Bible. You said, ‘And that’s what’s so wonderful about the design of the traditional Christian Bible.
Yes, I still think it is quite a mystery that the Bible Wheel elegantly and effortlessly fulfills the ancient Jewish desire to arrange the Bible on the pattern of the Hebrew alphabet. Can you please explain your opposition to this line of thinking… Which I know you must have as you say you do not believe in GOD any more. That quote is from an article (The First Word) I wrote about ten years ago when I was a convinced believer. I do see your point about the GOD models being some what deficiant in explaining the Great Mystery Spirit. So I see no inherent problem with an after-life where GOD re-creates your body with the same mind and thoughts you had before death. There’s no problem with that idea, and indeed, it is what is taught in traditional Christianity. Is it possible in your view that GOD remains hidden from all logical view and only reveals the GOD-Self at a certain realization point like Samadhi?
Just want to make a quick response to your thought on consciousness and give you some of mine. I am educated in Mathematics and Physics and am currently a software engineer at 4QTRS in Yakima, Wa. I created this site on February 11, 2001 to share the Bible Wheel which I discovered in 1995.
This Study Guide, based on Daniel chapter 7, clearly and unmistakably identifies the Antichrist. Answer: A The four heads represent the four kingdoms into which the empire of Alexander the Great was divided when he died. Answer: A Yes, God gives us nine characteristics of Antichrist in Daniel 7 so we can be certain of his identity. In its catechisms, the papacy has omitted the second commandment against veneration of images and has shortened the fourth commandment from 94 words to eight and divided the tenth commandment into two commandments. Lest some should think that we are attacking fellow Christians by identifying this little-horn power, please keep in mind that the prophecy is aimed at a system and not individuals. Answer: A When a new Bible teaching is encountered, the only safe procedure is to compare it carefully with Scripture to see if it is in harmony with God's Word.
Many momentous prophecies from the Bible books of Daniel and Revelation will be featured in upcoming Amazing Facts Study Guides. Key participants in the closing war between Jesus and Satan will appear repeatedly in these prophecies. Yes, there have been many antichrists down through history who have worked against the kingdom of God.
Answer: A Next in Daniel's vision, a male goat with one huge horn suddenly appeared, traveling at great speed. Answer: A Heaven's reply was that the sanctuary in heaven would be cleansed after 2,300 prophetic days, or 2,300 literal years.
Answer: A a€?Gabriel repeatedly asserted that the 2,300-day vision involved events in the end-time, which began in 1798, as we learned in Study Guide 15.
Answer: A The starting event was a decree from Persian King Artaxerxes authorizing God's people (who were captive in Medo-Persia) to return to Jerusalem and rebuild the city.
No, the Bible clearly shows in Genesis 1:5, 8, 13, 19, 23, 31 that an evening and a morning equal a day. Answer: A Gabriel repeatedly asserted that the 2,300-day vision involved events in the end-time, which began in 1798, as we learned in Study Guide 15. Marjorie Perloff has been a frequent reviewer for periodicals from TLS and The Washington Post to all the major scholarly journals, and she has lectured at most major universities in the U.S. Tzevetan Todorov first distinguished himself by applying structuralist methods to literature and literary criticism. Atuou como conferencista convidado em diversas Universidades do Brasil, da Europa e dos Estados Unidos, e como professor visitante na Universidade da California, em Berkeley. As an interpreter of his own songs, his first album, released in 1993, has his name for a title. In 1978 he received the PrA?mio Jabuti from the CA?mara Brasileira do Livro (Brazilian Book Chamber) as best revelation author, and again in 2009, as an essayist. He has been active as a lecturer in serveral universities in Brazil, in Europa and in the United States, and as Visiting Professor at the University of California, Berkeley. Born in East Germany and having lived for most of his life in the USSR, art critic Boris Groys challenges common places about both avant-garde and contemporary art.
Belgian historian, theorist and critic Belgian Thierry de Duve has made important contributions to the reassessment of the modernist legacy.
In the late 1950a€™s and early 1960a€™s, poet Ferreira Gullar proved one of the most prolific and original theorists of the Brazilian avant-garde in the plastic arts, launching his Manifesto Neoconcretoa€? and publishing his a€?Theory of the Non-Objecta€?. German philosopher Peter Sloterdijk is certainly one of the most original contemporary thinkers.

Martin advocated a new and novel arrangement of the Christian Bible that has never actually existed as such at any time in the history of Christianity.
The last century saw the advent of what we call the modern scholarly criticism of the biblical texts and manuscripts. If critical scholars know anything, they know that there is a vast array of various orders represented in the Greek manuscripts. That Martin was aware of these facts is evident from his footnote numbered 11 which cites page 14 of James Moffatt’s Introduction to the Literature of the New Testament, (3rd ed.
How then did he support his assertion that his was the one and only “proper” sequence? He cited no documentary evidence for any of his assertions about Jerome’s motivations. In the first place must be put the holy quaternion of the Gospels, which are followed by the book of the Acts of the Apostles. Yet beyond his many factual errors, Martin exhibits a much more disturbing blindness to the theological reasons that explain why God led His people to place the Book of Romans as first in the Epistles. Luther, in his famous preface, says “This Epistle is the chief book of the New Testament, the purest Gospel. And so, when Luther redesigned the sequence of the New Testament epistles, where did he put Romans? They represent the exact number presently in our King James Version but, as one can observe, they are arranged and enumerated differently.
In the earliest records, the Jews counted the books of the Tanakh as 22 in an apparent attempt to force-fit their canon in accordence with the number of letters in their alphabet (see The 22 Books of the Jewish Canon). This appears to be more reasonable, since the twenty-four-book collection is more simple than the twenty-two-book collection’s awkward and arbitrary combination of Ruth and Lamentations with Judges and Jeremiah.
It would be just as laughable to believe God designed each sentence in Hebrew, would it not? Can you really believe that the true God would be sexist, violent, cruel, and irrational as Yahweh? The problem is with the concept of an omniscient omnipotent AGENT that goes about doing things. The concept is quite problematic since it depends critically upon what it would mean to exist without my body. But obviously he said lots of good stuff, or Christianity never could have captured so many hearts and minds over the millennia. Is it possible that yoga and martial arts are the physical mechanisims for a cosmic awareness system which if practiced over time will reveal the true GOD in real time? Science is fairly certain that consciousness does emerge out of matter, since there has never been one verifiable case of consciousness existing without a body. For over a decade I was completely convinced it was proof of the divine inspiration of Scripture.
The four generals who headed these areas were: Cassander, Lysimachus, Ptolemy, and Seleucus.
We must identify it carefully because God takes more space describing it than the other four kingdoms combined.
And even though some may find these truths from God's Word painful, we must be honest enough to accept them as His revealed will. Thus, the little horn (Antichrist) was to have power over the saints for 1,260 prophetic days or 1,260 literal years.
This same period of persecution is mentioned in Matthew 24:21 as the worst period of persecution God's people will ever experience. To believe an untruth about the Antichrist could easily cause a person to be deceived and lost. The Bible is clear that all should have freedom to choose the direction they wish to go in matters of conscience (Joshua 24:15)--even if they choose to deny God and be atheists.
However, there is only one entity that specifically fulfills all the prophesied characteristics of the Antichrist.
You're now going to explore the longest time prophecy in the Bible - a prophecy that perfectly predicted the first coming of Jesus and the time of His death.
Some have suggested that the little horn represents Antiochus Epiphanes, a Seleucid king who ruled over Palestine in the second century B.C. When a saint asked how long God's people and heavenly sanctuary would be trodden under foot, what was heaven's reply? The angel wanted us to understand that the 2,300-day prophecy is a message which applies primarily to all of us who are living in the end-time of earth's history. After His ministry of three and one-half years ended, Jesus confirmed the covenant through His disciples (Hebrews 2:3). Jesus, God's Son--deity Himself--who was more than equal to all the people who would ever live on earth, agreed to sacrifice His life to pay the death penalty for every sinner (1 Corinthians 5:7).
There is no warrant or evidence whatever for inserting a gap anywhere between any of the years of the 490-year prophecy. Sua obra se dedica principalmente a discutir, defender e elucidar a poesia experimental e vanguardista.

Patek Professor Emerita of Humanities at Stanford University and currently Florence Scott Professor Emerita at the University of Southern California. Since then, he has published several works in cultural analysis and the history of ideas, including an important call for a reappraisal of the Enlightenment. Dicionario das ciencias da linguagem, Lisboa, Don Quixote, 1973 ; Sao Paulo, Perspectiva, 1977. The ability to bring together poetic practice and theoretical reflection turned Michel Deguy into a major figure on the French intellectual scene since the 1970s. Em suas influentes obras sobre o pA?s-modernismo, ele o considera como um movimento de neo-vanguarda, porquanto tentava ultrapassar as formas e disciplinas convencionais. In his influential works on postmodernism, he considered it as a neo-avant-garde movement, in as far as it attempted to reach out beyond given forms and disciplines. His essays expose the simplistic and moralistic assumptions of contemporary conceptions of art.

Rejecting the reality of the traditional dualisms of body and soul, subject and object, culture and nature, etc., he asserts the hybrid character of the real world.
It is almost unbelievable that such a non-manuscript arrangement of the books of the Bible could exist, but all modern translations of the Holy Scriptures do not follow the early manuscripts. T&T Clark Ltd, 1981) where Moffatt presented a table listing a few of the more prominent variations in the manuscript sequences.
After this must be reckoned the epistles of Paul [of Paul the fourteen epistles commonly received are at once manifest and clear. The theological supremacy of Romans, which becomes particularly vivid when compared with James, has been recognized by countless scholars, many of whom would have mourned any exaltation of Rome.
Again, it was Jerome who gave us our present enumeration of 39 books for the Old Testament rather than the original 22 enumeration (which agreed with the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet).
But history has provided no specific list of the 22 books, and since the time of the Talmud (5th century) the Jews have consistently counted their books as 24. It requires no manipulation to see it, and given the natural history of the formation of the canon, we know that it can not be attributed to any human design. But there is some data that still has no explanation that implies a design in the details of certain verses, specifically, the holographs.
But I do reject Allah, Apollo, Yahweh, Zeus, and any similar theistic style gods made in the image of man. This is what’s so great about having a decade spanning record of my thoughts on my site, this blog, and my forum (which I started in 2007). Specifically, the concept of a theistic style god who is an omniscient, omnipotent agent made in the image of man.

Everything that identifies me as me depends critically upon my body and the memories that are apparently stored in its brain. I find it interesting that you accept the notions presented within Christianity’s Jesus’ sayings but reject Christianity! I just accept what seems true and reject the rest, as I do with every teaching taught by all the religions.
He does map onto the archetype of the “Perfect Man” pretty well, but even that is problematic if you are a woman! It seems that the greater the degree of complexity of matter the higher the intellectual level of consciousness.
Future lessons will reveal details of some of his activities that will have worldwide impact. Daniel 8:20 specifically names Medo-Persia as the kingdom that precedes the rough goat, or Greece, of verse 21. The four wings (instead of two like the lion) represent super-speed, which was true of Alexander's conquests (Jeremiah 4:11-13). Seven of those 10 tribes developed into the countries of modern Western Europe, while three were uprooted and destroyed. Verse 22 tells us it was so devastating that not one soul would have survived if God had not shortened it.
Let's first look at the evidence for it claiming to forgive sins: "Does the Priest truly forgive the sins, or does he only declare that they are remitted? Daniel chapter 7 is simply a message of judgment and correction upon a large religious institution which compromised with paganism, like so many other churches that arose after her. His true people (no matter what their faith) will always humbly accept the correction of the Lord and will not shut their ears and hearts against Him by self-defensiveness. Jesus repeats and expands His messages from the prophets to make certain His warnings of love and protection come through with clarity and certainty.
In Daniel chapters 7 and 8 and in Revelation chapter 13, you will find at least 10 identifying traits of the Antichrist. In Study Guide 16, "Angel Messages from Space," you learned that God has an extremely important message the world must hear before Christ's return! It has special meaning for today.a€?a€?Introduction to Daniel Chapter 9a€?After Daniel's vision of chapter 8, the angel Gabriel came and began explaining the vision to him. God's people would soon be returning from captivity in Medo-Persia, and God would cut off 490 years from the 2,300 years and allot them to His chosen people as another opportunity to repent and serve Him. He sent them first to the Jewish nation (Matthew 10:5, 6), because His chosen people still had three and one-half years remaining of their 490-year opportunity to repent. By accepting His sacrifice, sinners would thus be freed from the guilt of sin (Romans 3:25).
It has special meaning for today.Introduction to Daniel Chapter 9After Daniel's vision of chapter 8, the angel Gabriel came and began explaining the vision to him. In doing so, she invites us to resume the Wittgensteinian insight that imagining a language a€“ which is imagining a form of life.
She teaches courses and writes on twentietha€”and now twenty-firsta€”century poetry and poetics, both Anglo-American and from a Comparatist perspective, as well as on intermedia and the visual arts.
In recent years he has developed the genre a€?aula-recitala€? (a€?recital-lessona€?), having as a partner violin-player Arthur Nestrovski. Michel Deguy is currently a professor of French literature at the Universite de Paris VII (Saint-Denis), the founder and editor-in-chief of Po&sie since 1972 (Editions Belin), and the editor of Les Temps Modernes, the journal founded by Jean-Paul Sartre.
De Duvea€™s investigations have led him to dispute the substantiality of the distinction between modern, post-modern and contemporary art.
In the 1960a€™s, Gullar abandoned the avant-garde, joined the Communist Party and proceeded to write politically engaged poetry and drama.
His anti-linear intelligence has been able to discover impressive and surprising connections among, for instance,A  Diogenes and Hitler, Stalin and Dada, the Weimar Republic and the Grand Inquisitor, Kafka and Brecht, Zen Buddhism and Eurotaoism.
Indeed, when they printed their final results of surveying the early New Testament manuscripts, they all without exception placed their arrangement of the books in the same order. The validity of its position as first in the Epistles is also confirmed in a thousand ways by its integration on the first Spoke of the Bible Wheel where it aligns with Genesis and Isaiah. Perhaps … the number twenty-two was a holy number and thus all of the scriptures had to fit within that number. For the Old Testament, he followed the order of the modern Tanakh (Jewish Bible) but had to invent a novel way of counting them because the Jews reckon their canon to have 24 rather than 22 books.
But on the other hand, matter is a concept of mind, so I I were to be a monist (to which I am inclined) Idealism makes more sense than Materialism.
That idea simply makes no sense to me at all any more, so I can’t believe any explanation that assumes it is true. But again, that doesn’t mean there is not some sort of Cosmic Mind or Universal Consciousness underlying all reality. Indeed, all the faculties of the soul, such as language, memory, and will seem to be based in the physical body.
It’s pretty challenging getting to that meaning since there is a 2000 year gap involving both culture and language. Oddly enough, the evidence for the Bible Wheel withstood our skepticism though the Bible itself did not.
What you discover today may displease or sadden you, but please remember that the prophecy of Daniel chapter 7 comes from Jesus, who loves you.
Because the biblical characteristics identify it as the Antichrist of prophecy and history. Its rule continued until 1798 when Napoleon's general, Berthier, took the pope captive with hopes of destroying both Pope Pius VI and the political, secular power of the papacy.

In Daniel chapter 8, Greece is represented by a goat and its leader, Alexander the Great, is symbolized by a horn.
We do this ourselves to some degree: We have depicted Russia as a bear, the United States as an eagle, etc.
The geographical location of the papal power was in Rome, Italy--the very heart of the territory of Western Europe.B. The first point commands people to worship God and glorify Him, because the hour of His judgment has arrived(Revelation 14:7). The rough male goat symbolized the third world kingdom of Greece, and the huge horn symbolized Alexander the Great. Others, including most leaders of the Reformation, have believed that the little horn represents Rome in both its pagan and papal forms.
Thus the camp was cleansed from sin.a€?a€?Heaven was here assuring Daniel that sin and the little horn power would not continue to prosper, control the world, and persecute God's people endlessly.
When Gabriel reached the point of the 2,300 days, Daniel collapsed and was ill for some time.
From that date onward the Jews, because they rejected Jesus and God's plan, were no longer God's chosen people or nation.
The angel said the heavenly sanctuary would be cleansed, or the heavenly judgment would begin. Never in Scripture does a specific number of time units (days, weeks, months, years) comprising a stretch of time mean anything but continuous or consecutive time units.
Thus the camp was cleansed from sin.Heaven was here assuring Daniel that sin and the little horn power would not continue to prosper, control the world, and persecute God's people endlessly.
Among other things, Perloff has called international attention to the Language Poetry movement, to the Objectivist Poets and, of course, to Brazilian concrete poetry.
In doing so, literature loses, according to him, the faculty of spurring us into fresher, richer and deeper ways of thinking about the world and ourselves. Nos A?ltimos anos tem desenvolvido o gA?nero a€?aula-recitala€?, em parceria com o violonista e ensaA­sta Arthur Nestrovski.
Foster argues that the tension between social embeddedness of art and artistic autonomy a€“ even if it is always only semi-autonomy a€“ should persist. For example, against the common sense view that sees a contradiction between the first soviet avant-garde, on the one hand, andA  Stalinist socialist realism, on the other, he holds that the latter can be taken as the culmination of the formera€™s experiments. He recently claimed that although the liberalism of a€?anything is alloweda€? has exacerbated artistic idiosyncrasies, it has not favored the appearance of the singularities that one should expect from true works of art.
This commitment lasted until, in 1975, while exiled by the Brazilian dictatorship, he wrote the a€?Poema sujoa€? (a€?Dirty poema€?), which marked the beginning of a new phase in his poetry.
Peter Sloterdijk, born in 1947, is Professor of Philosophy and Media Theory at the University of Art and Design in Karlsruhe. His controversy with the French philosopher Jacques Derrida is one of the most famous of the late twentieth century.
The Reformation was undoubtedly the work of the Epistle to the Romans, as well as the epistle to the Galatians; and the probability is that every great spiritual revival in the church will be associated as effect and cause with a deeper understanding of this book. Hence we have the doubling up of books that do not naturally belong together (for example, Judges and Ruth). It fulfills the ancient Jewish intuition that the completeness of the Bible should be represented by its integration with the Hebrew alphabet, but it does so in such a way that God alone gets the glory since no human, or group of humans, could have conspired to design the pattern.
It’s just nothing like Yahweh, Allah, or any of the other gods made in the image of man. In Daniel 8 and 9, God reveals the date for His final judgment to begin and powerful prophetic clues proving Christ as the Messiah. The four horns that replaced the great horn represent the four kingdoms into which Alexander's empire was divided.
Instead, in 2,300 years God would step in with the heavenly day of atonement, or judgment, where sin and sinners would be identified and later removed from the universe forever. He regained his strength and resumed doing the king's business but was much concerned regarding the unexplained portion of the vision--the 2,300 days. Instead, God now counts people of all nationalities who accept and serve Him as spiritual Jews. The burden of proof is on those who claim that any part of any time prophecy should be detached and counted later.a€?a€?C. Those who teach that Antiochus Epiphanes is the little horn count the 2,300 days as literal days instead of prophetic days--each equal to a year. The burden of proof is on those who claim that any part of any time prophecy should be detached and counted later.C. Born in 1931, Perloff is professor emerita of English at Stanford University and currently Scholar-in-Residence at the University of Southern California.
He has recently assumed a critical stance regarding contemporary art, questioning its pretence of floating free of historical determination, conceptual definition and critical judgment.

Lately, his writings have seriously impugned the contemporary intellectual fashion of relativism.A John Searle, born in 1932, is Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley. Of course, there are philosophical problems with how an object (brain) could produce consciousness, but on the other hand, the correlation between consciousness and the brain is so strong its hard to imagine that they could be independent.
Idealism is the most attractive because I can understand matter as an object of consciousness, whereas it’s more difficult to understand consciousness as a property of matter. The Bible prophecies teach this antichrist power will play a crucial role in the final events of earth's history.
It would pluck up or uproot three kingdoms.a€?The emperors of Western Europe were largely Catholic and supported the papacy in its growth and authority. The blow was a deadly wound for the papacy, but that wound began to heal and continues healing today.

70.) We learned in Study Guide 17 that the heavenly day of atonement, or judgment, was slated for the end time. Righteousness is never a locked-in, programmed provision that takes me to heaven no matter how I live and even if I do not want to go.
This literal time period of a little over six years has no meaningful application to Daniel chapter 8. Born in 1955, Hal Foster is, among other things, Professor of Art and Archaeology at Princeton University and one of the editors of October.
Martin’s assertion, like those above concerning Jerome, seems to be another baseless fabrication.
So as with all such questions, I remain undecided because I recognize the limitations of my knowledge. The solution may be to understand matter and consciousness as two aspects of a single underlying unified reality. The three ribs represent the three principal powers conquered by Medo-Persia: Lydia, Babylon, and Egypt.
Three Arian kingdoms, however, did not support the papacy--the Vandals, Heruli, and Ostrogoths.
History shows that virtually every time the church passed laws to enforce its beliefs, persecution and murder of others resulted. Daniel 7:24-27 also establishes the fact that Rome in its papal form will be succeeded by the kingdom of Christ. The wrongs against God's people will at long last be righted, and the peace and harmony of Eden will once again fill the universe. All attempts to make this literal time period fit Antiochus Epiphanes have uniformly failed, which is an embarrassment to its proponents.a€?D.

I brought him to Your disciples, but they couldna€™t heal him.a€?A  Jesus replied, a€?You unbelieving and rebellious generation! You need to be, for you can't understand last-day events until you understand this evil power. If my daily choice is for Him, He will change me and make me like Him and eventually take me into His blessed new kingdom. Perloff has recently published her cultural memoir The Vienna Paradox (2004), which has been widely discussed. The system, however, is called Antichrist because it has usurped Jesus' authority and attempted to change His law.

Through the centuries he has endeavored (using various human agencies) to discredit God and take over His position. Bring him here to Me.a€? Then Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him, and from that moment the boy was healed. Antichrist Appears to Be SpiritualSatan aims to replace God in these last days by deceiving people into following Antichrist, who appears spiritual and holy. So Jesus actually began His ministry by clearly referring to the 2,300-day prophecy, stressing its importance and accuracy. Getting rid of sin in our lives and in the universe is possible only through Him (Acts 4:12). Then the disciples approached Jesus privately and said, a€?Why couldna€™t we drive it out?a€? a€?Because of your little faith,a€? He told them.
The main purpose of the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation is to expose Satan's traps and strategies and lead people to anchor in Jesus and His Word for safety.
In Noah's day, God stated that the Flood judgment would occur in 120 years (Genesis 6:3)--and it happened. No wonder heaven's three-point final message to the world calls upon us all to worship Him (Revelation 14:6, 7).
More serious, detaching the last seven years from the 490-year prophecy so distorts the true meaning of many prophecies in the books of Daniel and Revelation that people simply cannot correctly understand them.

In Daniel's day, God stated that His end-time judgment would begin in 2,300 years (Daniel 8:14)--and it happened.
This is why God condemns private interpretation of prophecy, such as this seven-year gap theory. However, this kind does not come out except by prayer and fasting.a€?This same story is repeated in Mark Chapter 9, vs.
They will be safe because they test every spiritual teaching and leader by Scripture (Isaiah 8:20). Even conservative historians claim the church probably destroyed at least 50 million people over matters of religious conviction. Then Lucifer, a brilliant heavenly angel (as we learned in Study Guide 2), challenged God and His principles of government. I was there for forty days and forty nights, all that time I ate no food and drank no water. It brings heartache, confusion, chaos, tragedy, disappointment, sorrow, betrayal, and evil of every kind.
The Lord gave me the two tablets on which God had written with his own finger all the words he had spoken to you from the heart of the fire when you were assembled at the mountain.
This relationship between rejecting the Messiah and the destruction of the city and temple is the crucial message of Daniel 9:26, 27.
At the end of the forty days and nights, the Lord handed me the two stone tablets inscribed with the words of the covenant.Matthew Chapter 4, vs. It is a message announcing the consequences of Israel's continued rejection of the Messiah--even after being given an additional 490 years of loving probation. 1-2 (NLT): Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted there by the devil.
16-18 (NLT): And when you fast, dona€™t make it obvious, as the hypocrites do, for they try to look miserable and disheveled so people will admire them for their fasting. Then no one will notice that you are fasting, except your Father, who knows what you do in private.
As you can see above: Demons are cast out, the Holy Spirit speaks, Moses received the Ten Commandments, and Jesus had the strength to overcome Satana€™s temptations. It can strengthen our faith and get difficult prayers answered.There are different types of fasting.
We are trying this for 21 days to achieve some answers from God and help get some desperate and difficult prayers answered. Fasting, praying, and special giving during the first month of the year sets the tone for the rest of the year. Fasting should be done in combination with things that can increase your faith, wisdom, and hearing from the Lord. Read a good Christian book, read Goda€™s Word in the Bible, listen with praise and worship to Christian music, and of course pray. Thought for the week:A  For more advice and understanding read a€“ a€?Fastinga€? by Jentezen Franklin.
22-24: The Lord God used the rib of the man to make a woman, and then he brought the woman to the man. And the man said, a€?Now, this is someone whose bones came from my bones, whose body came from my body. 13: If a man has sexual relations with another man as a man does with a woman, these two men have done a hateful sin. Most are basically good people that give to charities, help with the homeless, do good deeds and are friendly and nice to people. There are gay celebrities on TV that do wonderful works of mercy and charity for other people.
However, if you are gay and dona€™t turn from your present life style and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior you will go to the pool of fire (Hell). Yes, there is such a place and it is for eternity.A  If you intend to do it a€?somedaya€™, I hope you dona€™t get hit by a car and die before that happens. He wrote the rule book (the Bible) and it is expressed in it several times that he feels the punishment for this is death. We are all sinners in one way or another and must try hard to turn from our former self before we knew Jesus as our Lord. To the ones who say it is genetic or upbringing, I offer this: Alcoholism can be passed down through genes and wife-beating can be passed down through upbringing. God is the highest authority, how do you think he will judge according to the Ten Commandments and his Word in the Bible? Hook up with a good faith based organization like a€?Food for the Poora€? or a€?World Visiona€? and help these people out. God Bless.====================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop 1-21-2010. We run the risk of becoming weaker when we stay at home, so gradually we wona€™t even notice. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.a€? Notice it says he is looking for someone, like a lion does. They need Christian friends and other Christian adults if they are to survive in this world.
Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.a€?7 Because we need the help of good people.
Pastors cannot serve full-time, a building cannot be purchased, missionaries will not be sent out, ministries to the community wona€™t be fulfilled, and the lost wona€™t be saved. And how can they preach unless they are sent?a€?10 Because God says we should go to church regularly. 30-31: And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will morn, and they will see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he will send out his angels with a trumpet blast, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. 10: But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a mighty roar and the elements will be dissolved by fire, and the earth and every thing done on it will be found out. 36-43: But of that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.
In (those) days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day that Noah entered the ark. Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour of the night when the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken into.
So too you also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.
Pilots vanish, drivers vanish, wives vanish, neighbors vanish, and it is a world wide supernatural event that happens at the exact same time.
There are no second chances of dropping to your knees and asking for forgiveness because it comes and goes in a blink of an eye. Wars, Nation against Nation, famines, earthquakes, natural disasters, and a sin loving generation. I always interpreted the a€?He will come like a thief in the nighta€? as have a duel meaning.
Some people know in advance when they will die and they, believe it or not, are the lucky ones. Hint: It is hot, miserable, people are gnashing their teeth and screaming, and your caretaker has horns --------- hhmmmmmm.
However, if you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior and turned your life around you will be going somewhere that is truly pure love. If I am wrong, then worms get me just like you but if I am right I live in love and you dona€™t. I just dona€™t know where people get their ideas from because the Bible tells it like I do. Also, it is also true that before Jesus came to the earth as a man, that all the pagan nations were defeated by Goda€™s people the Israelites. Why ---- because the Israelites worshiped the only God there is and the pagans worshiped false ones. A PS:A  Hope youa€™re not on one of those planes where the Pilot is a follower of Christ when the Rapture comes. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. I was impressed by the many many friends who came to offer condolences and said kind things about her.
To go through life with so many people that call themselves your family around you is a tribute to the love that is shown and radiates from you.
Some are acquaintances, some good acquaintances, others are friends and still others are good friends.
I think I need to add a new one that shows love beyond that of the latter a€“ it is family. Thought for the week:A  Happy Valentines Day !!!!!=============================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop 2-22-2010. You see the fire trucks pull up and the fire men run from the trucks, get their ladders, hook up the hoses and then ------- sit down and take a coffee break. Your company is told that there is a mother and two children screaming for help from the third floor and they are close to being consumed by the flames.
You and your men run over to see what instructions he has but he presents all of you with some Coffee and doughnuts. All of us know of people, friends, and family that have not accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior and are not saved. They are like the family in the house.A  Because of pride, fear, or some other human emotion, we either do not share the Word with them or are not persistent with it to get them saved. The people we know then end up dying either naturally or prematurely in an accident and end up burning in the ever lasting flames of Hell. 18-20: And Jesus came and said to them, a€?All authority on heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. There were actually two letters that I have combined and edited to eliminate the womana€™s identity.
It is offered here as another a€?building blocka€? about evangelizing and spreading Goda€™s will. I agree that we are all called to share the gospel with others and that we often fall short of that. The Holy Spirit is the one who draws them, ("No one can come to me unless the Father who sent Me draws him" John 6:44) convicts them and makes them see that they are sinners. People are drawn to God in us when they see something about us that they dona€™t have and they are made thirsty for. But they all have heard the truth many times and they refuse to acknowledge that they are sinners in need of a rescue. My part is to pray for them, live my life for Jesus (let my light shine) and share the truths of the gospel when there is an opening to do so. It took many years, but I am at peace knowing that if they die without knowing Jesus therefore spending eternity in hell, that it was their choice. Another interesting fact is that we have different witnessing styles and people respond to different styles of witnessing.
But perfect love casts out fear" 1 John 4:18) To love others more than yourself and to know that without Christ they will spend all eternity separated from Him. When I go on mission trips, I pray for the hearts of the people that God is going to put onto my path and I pray that God would give me His eyes to see them as He sees them and His heart to love them as He loves them, and His words to speak to them. Although it is debated if they are actually God speaking, they are recognized by most as books that are still good to teach from.
Still others like the book of Sirach which is used a lot by the Catholic church brings question into mind that it may have been eliminated by Martin Luther just as a statement to his rebellious nature within that church. He even wanted to eliminate other books including the book of Revelation but, as history records, -- cooler minds prevailed.
60: Then all the people shouted and praised God, who saves those who put their trust in Him. Someone had a dream that as the soldier drew back to hit Christ that he grabbed the soldiers arm.
As they talked and discussed, Jesus himself drew near and walked along with them;Mark 16, vs.
The doors were locked, but Jesus came and stood among them and said, a€?Pease be with youa€?.
A Jesus also appeared to 500 others, Saul (whom later became Paul), and to his disciples again when he rose up and ascended into Heaven. Since Biblical times the tradition that the Roman Emperor Domitian ordered that the Apostle John be executed by throwing him into a cauldron of boiling oil has been widely held.
