If you were to wish for one thing when you die, as a Believer in Jesus Christ, wouldna€™t it be for a positive and rewarding welcome when we come into the Presence of our Lord and Savior! We have been working through 2 Peter 1 in recent weeks, so leta€™s go back to the beginning of the chapter and review what we have already studied leading up to this greatly anticipated, amazing homecoming.
2 Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. 3 His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirablea€”if anything is a€?excellenta€? or praiseworthya€”think about such things. But, one of the greatest conflicts against God continues to rage in the human mind and heart when it comes to Virtue! These continuing choices for virtue need to be made every daya€¦ if you fail, repent; if you have victory, continue to resista€¦otherwise the spirit of the world will imbed its insatiable tentacles toward your own destruction. After God created man He gave Adam the wonderful knowledge to give a€?names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animalsa€? and to care for all of the Garden of Eden (Gen. God Also Gave Mankind the Opportunity to Know Good and Evila€¦but to gain this carnal knowledge man and woman would disobey Goda€™s direct command. 9 And the Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the grounda€”trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. 2 For I can testify about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 9 But now that you know Goda€”or rather are known by Goda€”how is it that you are turning back to those weak and miserable principles? 28 Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. Despising the Knowledge of God brings Dire Consequences, may God give us a desire to know Him through His Word. Today, with a needed emphasis on health and image, self-control often centers on looking beautiful.
Individuals evidencing self-control in these areas will radiance a beautiful spirit, and will be a truly beautiful person.
7 To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life.
15 But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.
4 For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. 10 You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurancea€¦.
2 Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance. 10 Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth. 12 This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey Goda€™s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus. 21 I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyonea€” 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
Paul then gives a summary of Christa€™s profound supernatural Deity, who, appearing in a natural body, revealed Himself as God, our Savior and Messiah a€“ a dynamic confirmation validating the reality of this great mystery of Godliness, taught in the New Testament a€“ on which we entrust our life and eternal destiny.
14 Although I hope to come to you soon, I am writing you these instructions so that, 15 if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in Goda€™s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth. 7 Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wivesa€™ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly. 3 If anyone teaches false doctrines and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching, 4 he is conceited and understands nothing.
11 But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. What are the Coveted Attributes, and why should they be so coveted by the Believer in Jesus Christ? 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Despising the Knowledge of God brings Dire Consequences, may God give us a desire to know Him through His Word.A  Then, after adding His Knowledge, add Godly self-control. Individuals evidencing self-control in these areas will radiance a beautiful spirit, and will be a truly beautiful person.A  This inner beauty does not come overnight a€“ it takes Godly perseverance!
Paul had a strong motivation to teach Godliness to Timothy, his young disciple.A  Paul has more references to a€?godlinessa€?, in this first letter to Timothy, than a€?godlinessa€? is specifically referenced in any other book of the Bible. Currency, will receive a copy of PILGRIMS' SONGS, together with THE CIRCULAR, for one year from Dec.
Let's play Legend of Zelda The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom, the new game of Adventure Time that takes the old-school play of the dungeon crawler adventure game with story elements and uses the characters from Adventure Time.
This is a Zelda clone, flat-out this is the Legend of Zelda series redone with Adventure Time. Starting the game and past some telekinesis jokes, thanks Jake, you'll have your grass blade and Jake shield, there is a toy accessory in real life. WayForward needs to move forward by letting someone else try and make an Adventure Time game and not just parody classic Nintendo titles.The game failed to entertain me on numerous levels. For if you do these things, you will never fall, 11 and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. If anyone is never at fault in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to keep his whole body in check.
5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. 8 For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.
He has an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions 5 and constant friction between men of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Goda€” 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.

You ought to live holy and godly lives 12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming.
9 But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins.
Coming from the the fine folks over at WayForward and the new publisher Little Orbit, because the infrastructure of WB Games is just like DC Comics, it doesn't handle anything internally.
Not generally a bad thing, but I would have just enjoyed a pure RPG, not an action adventure RPG. Get out of here extensively long named Adventure Time game, I assume is named that long because Pen Ward finds it funny. It was created out of missing cool events that you would hear about later or because you didn't read a certain post.
20121 Kings 8:28 -- But please listen to my prayer and my request, because I am your servant. That question revolves around the manner of Christ's coming back to this earth at the end of the world.
First, He will come secretly to take the church to heaven, and then, seven years later, He will come in an open demonstration of power and glory. According to the two-stage teaching of His coming, both groups would not grow together until the end of the world. And how could the "last trump" sound if it really wasn't the very last moment of time?
In an attempt to uphold their contrived theory, the rapturists quote Matthew 24:40, 41 out of context.
Those who entered the ark in Noah's day were saved, and those who refused to enter the ark were left outside. But, actually, instead of teaching two separate events, the Greek terms are used interchangeably in the Bible. But they have been repeated so often that millions have assumed that they must be soundly biblical.
Whatever else may be taught in Revelation 3: 10, it is evident that no extra coming of Christ is indicated. In Daniel 9:24-27 God made a daring prophecy concerning the probation of the nation of Israel. They do this by stating that it is Antichrist that causes the sacrifice and oblation to cease after three and one-half years.
Paul settles the entire matter for us in the first few verses of 2 Thessalonians chapter 2.
Revelation 20:4 assures us that some of those who are raised in the first resurrection will be those who refused to worship the beast and receive his mark!
At the time of the Reformation, most of the reformers understood the prophecy of the Antichrist to refer to the great apostate system of Romanism that developed during the Middle Ages.
The teaching spread to the United States in the 1850s and 1860s, where it was to receive its biggest boost when Cyrus Ingerson Scofield, a strong believer in Darby's teachings, incorporated it into the notes of his Scofield Reference Bible, which was published in 1909. As we have noticed, the Bible clearly teaches that Jesus Christ will come the second time in glorious majesty to take His redeemed home with Him.
But at that time your peoplea€”everyone whose name is found written in the booka€”will be delivered.
That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. Link Finn is on another adventure and you'll have to solve puzzles with certain weapons and items, find secrets to hidden areas after getting new items and slap people with you Jake pimp hand. In between those two events, the Antichrist is supposed to come into power and the great tribulation period takes place.
Now why would Jesus promise to be with the church until the end of the world if He intended to come seven years before the end to take them out of the world? Only as we accept all that the Bible says can we be safe from such deceptive teachings that are confusing millions of sincere Christians today concerning this most glorious event of all ages, the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Why would Christians be exhorted to keep hoping to the very end of the world for the grace brought through the revelation of Christ if their real hope was a secret rapture seven years before the revelation?
Let's take a look at some of the texts that have been used to support the doctrine of a two-phase coming of Christ. Jesus completely clarified the meaning by something He said in John 17:6, 15 which sounds very similar. There is not one single scriptural reference that ties the seven years to the end of the world or the coming of Christ.
But Daniel states that it is Jesus who caused the sacrificial system of the Jews to cease when He died on the cross. How completely this demolishes the futuristic school of prophetic interpretation is evident, for they claim that the emergence of the Antichrist and the imposition of his mark are to be looked for after the first resurrection and what they call the secret rapture.
In the Scottish church pastored by Edward Irving, a Miss Margaret McDonald gave what was believed at the time to be an inspired utterance.
Since that time, this view has been widely accepted - often by people who are completely unaware that this was not the belief held by Christians over the centuries. It will be a personal, visible, and earthshaking event that everyone alive will know about.
They will say they see no harm in cavorting about dressed like a devil or a skeleton or Angels and disciples.
2 Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.
9 People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. Sorry for all the Legend of Zelda jokes, it's just so easy-hey, the game wouldn't be made fun of if it was charming on it's own. This shows that the coming (parousia) of Christ and the revelation (apokalupsis) of Christ are the same event. The fact is that there are many Scriptures that admonish Christians to wait and watch for the coming of the Lord. Most rapturist literature mentions the seven-year tribulation period without offering any Bible proof or explanation.
A misinterpretation that confuses something Christ has done, and applies it to the devil instead, is certainly a tragic occurrence.
3 Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. Pig and Tree Trunks voice actors don't do a very good job of impersonating the real voice actors. These texts clearly describe the coming (parousia) of Christ as taking place after the reign of the man of sin, not as an escape rapture before the reign of the Antichrist begins.
In fact, it is only after a person has already assumed that Christ will return in two separate comings that these verses could even suggest the idea.
Let us carefully study our Bibles that we will not be deceived concerning this most important and wonderful hope, the second coming of Jesus.

Adults say they have gravitated to the festivities of the holiday because they can enjoy themselves completely, without feeling 'burdened' by the expectations and responsibilities of other holidays (e.g. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. Listen, it's dangerous to make a clone, take the time to make something new that uses classics, not games that downright are them.
The heavens and earth could not pass away seven years before the world ends - that is the end! Please notice that God was going to allow Daniel's people seventy weeks to see what they would do with the Messiah when He appeared. Daniel 9:25 says that the Messiah would be anointed after sixty-nine of those prophetic weeks had passed by. They agree that the sixty-nine weeks of Daniel 9:25 refer to the period before Christ's first advent, but then they insert a 2,000-year gap before the seventieth week is fulfilled.
484-510.)a€?a€?2Dave MacPherson, The Incredible Cover-Up, Logos International, 1975, Omega Publications, Medford, OR. 484-510.)2Dave MacPherson, The Incredible Cover-Up, Logos International, 1975, Omega Publications, Medford, OR. Yet Paul declares that the saints are caught up to meet the Lord at the same time the dead in Christ are raised.
The seventy weeks are prophetic time, and each day represents a literal year (Ezekiel 4:6). Another three and a half years would lead up to the end of the seventy weeks and the end of Jewish probation. Even as a vet of old-school titles I found the game very hard and it's puzzles somewhat complicated. So the seventy weeks would be a literal period of 490 years, after which the Israelites would no longer be God's people.
A pen and paper to write down clues or maybe a tablet to take down notes is a good choice to have when playing this title.
The text that is used to prove the rapture is seen actually to forbid the saints being taken out of this world during the time of trouble. 27, the very year that Jesus was baptized by John and the Holy Spirit anointed Him for His ministry. God reminds us, through the Apostle John, not to gravitate toward such worldly holidays.A 15 Do not love the world nor the things in the world. The Jews had rejected the gospel message and were no longer God's people - just as Daniel had predicted.
Henceforth they could be saved only as individuals, in exactly the same way as the Gentiles. No true believer in God should be involved in the holiday, with its celebration of pain, suffering, evil, and death - not to mention its worship (at times cleverly disguised) of God's adversary. However, the little foxes were too small to reach the grape bunches so they would chew on the vines and it would kill the whole vine. Instead of the farmer just losing his crop, he would lose his vine which was more disastrous. Spiritually some things we do or allow, that we might think is little or insignificant, can also be disastrous for us.Some may consider celebrating Halloween as only a little compromise.
However, it is the a€?little foxesa€? that spoil the vines and this little compromise can open the door to other evils. Many Christians do not realize that certain traditions that are celebrated in the world have evil origins. Just because our society partakes in certain activities does not make them acceptable for Christians. No Christian should partake in the activities of this holiday, nor should they allow their children to do so.
We can discern the evil of this day by taking a look at the festivities that are associated with its celebration. Games played at carnivals promote fear in children as they are ushered through spook houses and horror rooms. Satan has gained mana€™s approval to celebrate his day by simply making it a tradition that seems like a fun day. The opposite is true, however, as more damage and harm are done on this day each year than any other holiday.
Children are taught to go door to door chanting a€?trick or treat.a€? It is unchristian to demand a gift under threat of playing some trick. Until recently, most Christians have not questioned this traditional celebration, but rather have gone along with it by even bringing Halloween parties into the church. The earliest Halloween celebrations were not held by the early church, but the Druids in honor of Samhain, the a€?lord of the deada€?, and his demons, whose festival fell on November 1. All Hallows Eve, because it is the day before All Hallowsa€™ or All Saintsa€™ day, was a holy day in the Roman Catholic Church, Episcopal Church, the Church of England and the Greek Orthodox Church. During the time of Constantine, these two holidays were merged in an attempt to Christianize the heathen. The church could not prevent these heathen practices, so they thought a€?taming'a€? them would be the answer. What might seem to some as innocent childrena€™s games is a a€?little foxa€? that can open the door to satanic influence and even demon possession in some cases. Children can be tormented with a spirit offear that can come through this involvement that stays with them throughout their lives.
It also introduces children toA witchcraft, making it easier for them to become involved in cults and occultic activities. When children are taught it is alright to play with the things of darkness, it does not give them the repulsion and resistance that they need to stand against greater Satanic involvement.
When the things of Satan are taken lightly, as games and fun, it sets our children up to accept evil rather than to resist it.
This a€?little foxa€? is not only spreading evil to children but has been a curse for the church and our nation as well. No true believer in God should be involved in the holiday, with its celebration of pain, suffering, evil, and death - not to mention its worship (at times cleverly disguised) of God's adversary. The church could not prevent these heathen practices, so they thought a€?taming'a€? them would be the answer.
