JESUS CHRIST THE “ROCK”

1Co 10:1  Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 1Co 10:2  And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 1Co 10:3  And did all eat the same spiritual meat; 1Co 10:4  And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.      Briefly put, my understanding is that the context has to do with godly sanctification and the opposition against it from the Satanic policy of evil. It’s the issue both with Israel when the designation is originally used by God when He brought them out of Egypt and they first confronted the policy of evil, as well as when the Song of Moses in Deuteronomy...

KINGDOM OF HEAVEN AND KINGDOM OF GOD

Mat 4:17  From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Mat 4:18  And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. Mat 4:19  And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. Mat 4:20  And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.         Briefly and simply put, my understanding is that for the most part there isn’t any difference between the two expressions. To me it is evident from places such as Matthew 4:17 and Mark 1:14–15, (where both accounts are describing the commencement of the Lord’s public preaching following John the Baptist being put into prison), that as set forth...

WHAT IS “THE OUTER DARKNESS” AND THE LOCATION OF THE LAKE OF FIRE

Mat 8:10  When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. Mat 8:11  And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. Mat 8:12  But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.     My understanding is that the Lord’s expression “outer darkness” refers to the issue of being outside the brightness and glories of the fulness of Israel’s land once God’s kingdom is established in it on the earth. In passages such as Isaiah 60-62 the issues of Israel’s “light” and “brightness,” (physical as well as spiritual), with...

THE REGENERATION~THE 24 ELDERS~THE 4 BEASTS

Isa 1:24  Therefore saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies: Isa 1:25  And I will turn my hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin: Isa 1:26  And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city. Isa 1:27  Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.   My understanding is that when “the kingdom of heaven” is established on the earth and in connection with it the 12 apostles receive what the Lord speaks of in Matthew 19:28, that they at that time will be the “restored judges” that God promised Israel,...

THE RISE AND DESTRUCTION OF SATAN

Eze 28:12  Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Eze 28:13  Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Eze 28:14  Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Eze 28:15  Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till...

DETAILS OF THE PIT AND WHERE IT IS LOCATED

Psa 69:14  Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters. Psa 69:15  Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.   First of all my understanding is that “the pit” is the basic description of the fact that there is a shaft like cavity that descends into the earth, just like the word “pit” is used to describe a hole or cavity going deep into the ground, or the shaft of some excavation leading into the earth. This shaft like cavity descends into the earth and right into the heart of the earth. In connection with this, it is described as “the bottomless pit,” having no visible of detectable bottom, nor designated or...

THE JERUSALEM WHICH IS ABOVE

Gal 4:22  For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. Gal 4:23  But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Gal 4:24  Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. Gal 4:25  For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. Gal 4:26  But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.   In accordance with the overall issue of God’s design and purpose for the earth, and particularly in accordance with the issue of Him replicating what He has in His Heaven on the earth in the very land of...

WHAT ABOUT DINOSAURS/ U.F.O.’S?

Man bases ‘his’ theory upon carbon dating which is not always accurate, along with many of the other dating methods that are used today. And this is something that is not only ponted out by bible believing Christians who take the creation accout literally, but it is even acknowledged within the halls of secular science itself; though not all that vocally, or even that often. (The inventor of radiocarbon dating, Willard Libby, asserted that it was only accurate for dating objects within the range of a couple thousand years old.) Radioactive carbon certainly exists, along with other such elements. But the problem with the dating methods employing them is that they are based upon way too many unproveable assumptions regarding their existance. If a person...

SUFFERING FOR CHRIST’S SAKE

1Co 4:6 And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another. 1Co 4:7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it? 1Co 4:8 Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you. 1Co 4:9 For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men. 1Co 4:10 We are fools for...

JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES AT YOUR DOOR?

While this is not a study about the history of the Jehovah’s witnesses, nor is it a study of their doctrine, for that I ask you to visit this site for information on the group: http://dougdoddsbg.com/religion/denominations/jehovah-witnesses-american-cult Charles Russell founded the group in 1876 with a few students, later the group would grow into millions. It is surprising to see that many people join something without getting background information into what they are placing their eternal faith into. Where we spend eternity should be an important issue with anyone, and making the wrong choices concerning life after our physical death is very dangerous. And after taking a look at their doctrine, and what they place their faith in; there is no salvation found...
