    Jim there is going to be a lot of sad faces coming out of those 1 world churches after worshipping the false messiah at the 7th trump a shamed and not able to look in the face of the true Christ but they will say but Lord we preached in your name and we healed in your name and Christ will say, I don't know you. Not excepted at the wedding because they didn't seek real truth thinking just believe.
  • Jim
    It is amazing to me how many believers misunderstand Scripture! It is also very sad. The church is a distinct group and God's wrath is not for us! Chastening yes, God's wrath and the tribulation period no! These letters were written for the purpose of clear instruction and to comfort believers. Trust the Lord and prayerfully read His Word. He will teach you. He loves you. You belong to Him!

    Verse 2 is saying wicked men do not have faith. Ephesians 2:8 "By Grace you are saved, through faith; though not of yourself, it is the gift of God." Faith is given the moment a person is saved. It is only through faith that a person is able to believe in Jesus, and believe on him.

    Verse 2 shows that not all men have faith. This is something that has to be developed.
  • Anonymous for verse 6
    Obey them that have rule over you...Also, submit yourself to the ordinance of man for the Lord 's sake
