RE: RE: Timothy Wayne George
So all of the other Biblical translations before the KJV were NOT the word of God? You say this version “is the oldest copy of the word of God”. How can that be? The translators of the KJV used the Texus Receptus and other documents as a basis for their translation. What about the other Gospels and Books that were left out of the cannon? Men decided what was to be in the Bible.
While we are on Virgin birth, the correct interpretation is “Born of a Young Woman” (Issa 7:14). INFACT the KJV mistranslated the Hebrew. The study of the Bible via textual criticism by scholars has shown this interpretation to be in error. In Isaiah 7, the “young woman’ is living in the time of the prophecy.
How can all of the world be taxed? The taxation story is only in Luke’s Gospel. If so, you would think that the only other birth narrative would have mentioned this? As I have stated previously, the narratives of the Gospels of Luke and Matthew don’t match. They are two different versions of a birth event. Not to mention, why would you have to travel to be taxed? What was the hurry? It did not work this way in the 1st century. The taxation event has been historically proved to be by Cyrenius governor of Syria.
Jesus said he would return (21:23). This did not happen.

Re: Doubting Thomas, Do you believe that Jesus
Christ was born of the Virgin Mary? Do you believe that Caesar Augustus proclaimed all the world to be taxed? It is true the synoptic gospels are Matt, Mark, and Luke. The Bible is the verbal plenary inspired word of God. Written in Hebrew, Latin, and Greek. The King James was translated by 47 scholars of King James I in 1611, and is the oldest copy of the word of God. Paul said in I Cor.13 we see thru a glass darkly, but when he that is perfect shall come, we will know as we are known. All of the questions about the Bible will be answered when we are face to face with Jesus. Jesus came into this world to save man from his sin. He died on the cross, was buried, and the third day he rose from the grave. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father, from which He will come again to judge the living, and the dead. Thank God that He gave you the Bible to study. Jesus said to search the scriptures, for these are they that testify of me. The Holy Spirit takes the word of God, and makes the scriptures real. If you have not received Jesus as your Savior, then you do not have the Holy Spirit abiding in you. Ask Jesus to come into your heart, and save you. He will,then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, and the veracity of the scriptures will be made known to you. So pray to the Lord: Ask, seek, and knock. The door will be opened for you. We are praying for you to make that decision. When Thomas put his hands into the nail prints of the Lord's side, he said my Lord, and my God. Jesus said blessed are you because you have seen. We are more blessed because we believe, and have not seen. When Jesus comes back, we will see Him as He is, and we shall be like Him.

RE: Timothy Wayne George
Matt: 24 and Luke: 17 are just a retelling of Mark: 13. That is why these Gospels are called the synoptic Gospels, because they are seen together. The majority of Luke and Matthew are from the Gospel of Mark. These Gospels are attributed to these disciples, but were NOT written by them.
Luke: 17 is BEFORE Luke: 21, so the description of "end times" events preceded the declaration by Jesus that “Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled".
This proclamation did not take place. The "generation" did pass away.
How can this logically be explained?
Timothy Wayne George's comment on 8/13/2012, 2:03pm...
When Jesus said this generation shall not pass away till all these things be fulfilled you have to remember all in the bible means all. We have seen some of these signs of the second coming,but all have not been fulfilled. This is the Olivet discourse, and you have to study Matt. 24, Mark 13, and Luke 17 also. The fig tree to watch is Israel, and in 1948 was the budding of the fig tree. The EU in 1957, the beginning of the revival of the Roman Empire. When Jesus spoke of the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, that event has not happened yet. So we are not that generation that He is talking about. There are no signs for the rapture of the Church, and this could happen in momment. Once this event takes place, the antichrist will come to power, and sign a false peace treaty with Israel for seven years. After 3 1/2yrs that is when the antichrist will claim to be god in the temple, causing all to receive the mark of the beast 666, and this generation that will see these things happen will not pass away, until Christ returns in glory to set up his Kingdom. Jesus said no one knows the day or the hour except the Father in heaven. We can only know that it is nigh at hand by the signs that we see today. Jesus said when you begin to see these things take place lift up your head, for your redemption draweth near even at the door. Study the book of Daniel, and Revelation to get a better understanding of the second advent of Christ.

This Gospel says that Jesus said " Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled".
The prophesy did not happen! I know the apologists can twist this around, but the fact remains (as written in Luke 21) that this prophetic event did not take place. So, if Jesus did not know, what does that tell you?
Think about it.
Jeremiah Pierce's comment about verse 8 on 5/12/2012, 9:59pm...
This has to be the most mistranslated vese in the Bible. If Jesus was talking about a faulse pophets here then Paul would have been tagged as one when he said "For me to live is Christ"
Jesus is talking about faulse Christians here. The decievers Jesus is talking about here are not saying that they themselves are Christ. They ar sayig that Jesus is the Christ thus most of Christanity today is included in His words.
Satin loves this twist of the God's word.
Alford Johnson's comment on 12/30/2011, 11:58pm...
Whether JESUS will return before or after the signs is not the most important thing, Dennis.If you should die today, you would have missed the signs.And the way you die is exactly the same way JESUS will find you on HIS return, simply because there is no repentance in the grave. So, I wouldn't worry too much about the pastors' timing because early preparation, in times of uncertainty means much,when you consider that no one or anything can withstand the wrath of GOD.

What Luke 21 is saying is surely true.Our Lord and saviour JESUS CHRIST will come to this world the second time to pass judgment on all souls.Many prophesies have come to pass.Others are currently been fulfilling,others are yet to be accomplished.yes he cometh as a thief.
Pastor Joan Thomas's comment on 7/02/2011, 5:06pm...
Wonderful scripture in the book of Luke. Growing up in church beginning with the Holiness Church, then Baptist and as an adult selecting the A.M.E. church; how amazing that none truly taught the Bible. The eyes to my understanding came in Dallas, Texas when I joined a Non-Denominational Church that truly taught the Word of God, word by word and precept by precept.
I can relate to Mr. Cochardo's comment. Preaching is something we all can do, however to preach the Word of God is what I truly enjoy. All the whooping and screaming they can leave that for those who are so accustomed to it that they block out anything else. Love Luke 21, absolutely love it!

It doesn't matter the amount of which we are giving to God but what matters is whether we are giving it with a willing heart
Dennis cochardo's comment on 2/20/2011, 1:41pm...
when i first became a follower of JESUS, it was preached to me from many pulputs that JESUS was to return at any moment. after studying the end times it has been made known to me that nothing could be further from the truth.
jesus will return after the "sign" and not before. my point is that these men, these prechers where not telling the truth. make sure your pasters and priests tell you straight, no twisting nor fabricating, the plain truth. make sure they do that
