    TO NORM - 1 THESS. 4 - AT THE END OF YOUR VERY GOOD MESSAGE YOU QUOTED ACTS 2:21. BUT - YOU NEGLECTED TO MENTION ACTS2:38 FIRST. THE PEOPLE LISTENING TO PETER ASKED,:WHAT MUST WE DO? THE UNWRITTEN - "TO BE SAVED" - IS 'UNDERSTOOD'.
    YOU CANNOT PICK 'N CHOOSE YOUR 'OWN' SALVATION FROM GOD'S WORD. 'IF' ONE IS SINCERE COMING UP OUT OF THE WATER - HE WILL BE CALLING ON JESUS' NAME.

    The Lord shall descend from heaven with a shout : My Lord will not be quiet : He will have the voice of the archangel : He will have the trump of God : the horn will blow And the dead in Christ will rise first : Then we which remain will be caught up together with them in the air , so shall we be with the Lord forever : Yes !!!! Amen !!!! Be prepared and ready !!! Find no attachment to this life !!! This life is temporal !!!
  • Shiloh
    "Prohecies" of man abound today. We must be VERY careful about speaking or receiving words attributed to our God. It's such a serious matter, Deut. 18 said false prophets were to be put to death.
