    Correct. Jesus is God. Merely was clothed in flesh; hence the phrase, GOD INCARNATE (God in the flesh). Color and race mean nothing to God. Joseph married an Egyptian and had two half-breed children Manasseh and Ephraim. The children of Israel came out of Egypt a mixed people from the very beginning.

    There has always only been ONE people of God. This is exactly why I left pre-trib rapture teaching. It teaches more than one gospel, more than ONE way to be saved, and more than ONE people.

    Yet the Bible teaches, there is ONE people of God in both the Old and New Testament.

    One faith.

    One Lord.

    One baptism.

    What's interesting is there is more Jewish blood in Palestine proven with TWO different DNA testings by two different scientists of Jewish descent yet the pre-tribbers are unaware of so many things and so many have hatred in their hearts for these people which is murder. I can't be a part of that body of Christ as it is cancerous.

    Chris, It is true that God knows things. He is Omniscient. But God is not a reactionary God. That is, He does not sees or know that something is going to happen and then reacts to that event. He does not see man is going to sin, so He provides a Savior. The Bible gives us an image of a God that is active in His creation. He Plans, then acts. To limit God to merely responding to what He perceives is going to happen, limits His ability to act. He is not a passive observer of history. He is involved and He is engaged with us in daily and constant prayer.

    When you say, "I see that God's Foreknowledge determined His Plan to accomplish His Purposes," are you saying, "He knows what is going to happen in the Future and He acts on that"? Or "Based on His knowledge and understanding, He determines what He is going to do and how to accomplish it"? Examples: 1. I know what an engine looks like, so I will build one. 2. Based on my knowledge of mechanics, I will design an engine. The first robs God of all creativity, since He is only copying what He sees. I believe the latter is more Biblical, because God is in control. But if we think of God's Foreknowledge as a reaction to what He knows will happen in the Future, based on His omniscience, we make Him a prisoner of the Future.

    The perception that the Future exists as an observable or knowable entity is flawed. We can't travel into the Future, because it doesn't exist. And if it did, we wouldn't be able to change it. The same is true for the Past. If there were such a thing as the Future, it would be set. That is, what the Future is, it is. Not even God could change it. Think about it. The perception of some is that God, in a sense, is reading in a book everything that's going to happen and that's how He knows the future. He didn't Plan the coming of Christ, He simply knew that was what was going to happen. But that is not what the Bible says. The Bible tells us God is in Control of creation, History and the future.

    But where my problem lies, is from one of our earlier discussions on: 'God's whole plan for Creation was to have Christ come into His Creation as a Man, to redeem man from his corruption' (or words to that effect). To me, that sounds like God's creation of man was unnecessary except to be the 'vehicle' for Christ's physical embodiment to lay down His Life. I disputed that, even to this time I find no need for God to even create man, if it was only for Christ's Sacrificial purposes. Why create man in the first place, I think was my original question? I believe you referred to God's Planning in your answer: that it was in God's original design that man would be born into corruption, hence the Plan for Christ's appearance. It is this issue that I stumbled on (as well as God's Planning vs His Foreknowledge).

    Again, I agree that Christ's coming was in God's original Design to rescue fallen man, but to just create man for no other reason except for Christ's humanity, I find my mind unable to grasp such a thought. And at that time, we had discussed the purposes of man's creation. I had said that it was for God's Pleasure (He saw that ALL of His Creation was good/very good) & that His creation (man) had the privilege of living amongst all of God's Creation & enjoying a pure & holy relationship with his Maker: even as His other Creation (angels) are now enjoying. Another answer to this question, I don't have, as I'm not privy to it, but to believe man's creation was just for the entrance of Christ, is strange. To all this you did disagree, & I accept that since it is not specified as such, just my supposition from the tenor of relevant Scripture.

    Carlos, your comment (May 13th) is not posted in this section even though I'm directed to it. So I'll respond anyway, reading if off my email.

    I do agree with you on all of your points, i.e. Christ was given a body as man's; all the relevant Scriptures point to this event (Abel's offering & Abraham's offering of Isaac, & many others that signify the need for Christ to ultimately make payment for sins, for which animal sacrifices could not). I agree as well to, "is it fair to conclude that both the Shadow and the object that casts that Shadow, Christ, were for Christ to enter the world as the True Sacrificial Lamb?" Yes, this is the correct conclusion.

    You quote Isaiah 40:3. I wish I could find my reference to that as it's not in the referenced thread. I think some of my pages sent to you & probably others from you have been clipped. I had sent four pages recently, but only one (the fourth page: the two trees) appears. I just don't recall using Isaiah 40:3 at this juncture. So, in truth, you have expressed yourself very clearly & I've had no difficulty in understanding your points & I find myself in complete agreement with them in your post. (onto page 2)
  • CARLOS RAMIREZ TREVINO on John 19
    Chris, I question that God just lets us go about our business without interfering. You say God created us and left us alone? But the Bible says otherwise. In Daniel 11:29, the Angel tells Daniel that "at the Appointed Time" something will happen. That is a recurring theme throughout the Bible. Christ came at the Appointed Time. He will return at the Appointed Time. What does it mean to "appoint" something? Clearly, it is God who appoints. It is God who "Schedules". It is God who Plans and Determines the course of history. Isaiah 41:4, "Who has accomplished this? Who has determined the course of history from the beginning? I, the LORD, was there first, and I will be there to the end." (God's Word Translation). Isaiah 46:10, "I distinguish the end from the beginning, and ancient times from what is still to come...'My purpose will be established, and I will accomplish all My good pleasure.'

    In Genesis 18:14, Abraham is asked, "Is anything too difficult for the LORD? At the Appointed Time I will return to you-in about a year-and Sarah will have a son." Was Sarah having a baby something God knew about the Future or something He deliberately Planned and caused to happen? Did God just want Sarah to have a baby, or was there a Purpose behind it? Did God Plan the birth of Isaac with a Purpose?

    We can say that God knows what is in the heart of man, but how does He know it? See John 2:25, "But Jesus did not entrust Himself to them, for He knew all men. He did not need any testimony about man, for He knew what was in a man."

    Let me interject, that while I have an opinion based on what is available, given my experience and studies, this is what I have concluded. But the fact is, I don't know. I could be wrong. You might be right. But this is how I see it.

    Paul speaks of God's Pre-destination of our adoption, of being conformed to His image. Ephesians 1:11,'My purpose will be established, and I will accomplish all My good pleasure'. God is not just involved, He determines.

    BRENDLYN:

  • Mishael ON God39s Love on Revelation 7:9
    CARLOS:

    God (The LET US) existed before Creation. He's the Alpha and the Omega.

    Original language in Genesis, says: in Beginning. Not in the beginning.

    He created TIME first. Everything on earth and in the universe, was going to be regulated on time and seasons.

    Everything scientist seek to explain: Time, Force. Action, Matter; is explained in Genesis 1:1. One verse. What a mighty God we serve.

    Yes he sees mankind all through history (HIS STORY). But he gave us free will.

    After Satan was thrown to earth by Michael the Archangel, he was here also with his will. I call him the I will I will I will mess up Gods plans. There's a scripture that says God is at work within our will to help us align our will with His , for our life. I need a lot of that, so I ask for it.

    So you can see that we are the owner operators of our will. Yes God sees what we may choose. If we're completely closed off to the Holy Spirit, we make huge mistakes at times. Sometimes we miss out on Gods best for us because we are frequently boneheads about choices. We spend the rest of our lives lamenting that we wish we had not chosen that disaster.

    I absolutely love God for that. He had my devotion at hello, Yom Kippur 1985. I had this vision one time of flying with the clouds, and I'd inhale this air that was so Good. Couldn't inhale enough. The air of heaven is faith. We have so much to look forward to. All the Lord needs is a open heart that wants to be filled with love. God is Love.

    He's not mean. His judgments are righteous. Instead of cross judging Him. We should wonder why? He will show us the answer. If we skim like ice skaters through the Bible, we miss important thought.

    We often close our eyes to things we don't want to see. If we miss the mark.. it's sin.

    That's why Jesus was willing to pay full price. It was decided before Time started ticking on earth. Open your hearts, not your minds.

    d. The use of the word "Mystery". Whenever used in the Bible, it denoted something now revealed that wasn't known before, whether fully or partially. E.g. Romans 11:25 (Gentiles would be saved, hence Israel's blindness); Ephesians 1:9 (Jew & Gentiles would be one in Christ); Ephesians 3:3 (Gentiles would be fellow-heirs, partaking in the same promise); Ephesians 5:32 (Christ & His Church alluded to a husband/wife relationship); Colossians 1:26,27 (Christ indwelling Gentiles); 2 Thes 2:7 (a type of wickedness not seen or imagined before which will be evident in the Anti-Christ); and to the Rapture: 1 Cor 15:51 which is Paul's message to the Corinthians as was to the Thessalonians: that this Mystery, that was not revealed before (whether by Prophecy or by Jesus), is now revealed to the Church. And this was not just a prelude to the Second Coming of Christ, but an indication that as before, in olden times, God would spare His people (now the Church & not the Jew), from His Great Anger that would come to all unbelievers.

    e. 1 Thes 5:9. Paul speaking about the sudden appearing of the Day of the Lord urges the believers not to be slothful but to await that Day. Why? Because "God has not appointed us to wrath (His Wrath upon the World), but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ". And this 'salvation' I understand is the saving of His Church from the Wrath of God.

    P.S. I'll have a look at your YT channel. Thank you.

    Hi Bob, I can understand how the word 'Rapture' can be used as a verb, but it is also quite rightly used as a noun, to describe an event that is yet to take place. Now, the problem: Is this event (Rapture) a separate 'snatching away of believers prior to the outpouring of Gods Wrath' or is it a part of Christ's Second Coming for His millennial reign, implying that believers will go through the Great Tribulation, but will be kept "from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth." (Revelation 3:10)?

    I understand the Gk. word "Parousia" to mean 'Presence or a Presence after an Absence, an Arrival'. So this certainly allows for 'a literal physical coming of Christ to set up His Kingdom', but I see that it can also speak of His Coming for His saints specifically. Actually, there are various aspects from the Word, which compel me to believe that there will be a removal of His people first before the Anger of the Lord is poured out. Most of these you will be aware of:

    a. Genesis 6-8. Noah & his family were saved at a time of God's Wrath upon the wicked.

    b. Exodus 7 ff. The children of Israel delivered from Pharaoh after God's judgement against Egypt.

    c. Israel too suffered at times, only because of their disobedience to God, idolatry & many crimes.

    Re " thou and thy seed"

    We are created in the image of God, and HIS WORD IS HIS SEED.....SO OUR WORD CAN BE OUR SEED as well as our

    offspring....so to speak God's Word gives us power...." we haven't been given a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind"....2 Timothy 1:7...and every seed reproduces after its own kind....and the Word speaks volumes about our lips, tongue, mouth ,...etc

    What was Virgin Mary's seed....I think it was the words of her mouth

    " Be it unto me according to thy word".....which is summarized when we agree with God's Word by saying..." AMEN"

    Our seed can be interpreted 2ways....depending on context

    People do get targeted for their color in this culture. There's a lot of anger there. We are called to be mediators. In the 'family business' of reconciliation.

    Appears that maybe Moses took some lip for marrying someone the sister rejected because of the color.

    As Christians we have to be color blind. You can't pick and choose whom the Lord might say, "go talk to that one". We get crowns at Bema Seat. Jesus said EVERYONE is welcome. We just say, Yes Sir!

    The first will be last, and the last, first.
  • Eileen on Leviticus 15:19
    In Matthew 9 vs 20-21 - The woman with the issue of blood. IN that time she was deemed unclean. By touching Jesus in an act of faith, desperate for healing is it safe to say that by touching Jesus she made Jesus unclean? Not unclean in the sense of physical Uncleaness or spiritual but in the sense that he took het uncleaness. Matthew 8 say he took our informities and bore our sicknesses
  • Vickie - in Reply on Revelation 7:9
    Delanie, You & your family share a very great burden. To be wrongfully accused & imprisoned is certainly unfair. I would like to share these thoughts with you. The Apostle Paul was called by God to preach the gospel to the Gentiles. However, he spent much of his time in prison. He could have wondered why was God allowing this & how could he fulfill his purpose when he was locked up? Yet because of his being in prison his message reached kings & nobles & high ranking military men not to mention the letters he wrote to the churches that make up most of our New Testament, today (& his message continues to reach souls even to this very day). Joseph was sold into slavery by his own brothers & then Potipher's wife lied about him & he was imprisoned. He had valid reasons to lose faith & become discouraged, but he kept his faith in God & kept a positive attitude & after many years of his trials, God used him mightily to save Israel. David was anointed to be King by Samuel but had to endure many long years of running for his life from Saul while God was preparing David to become the warrior king of Israel & subdue their enemies. God knows if your family member has been wrongfully sentenced. God will be with your family member thru the entire 6 years or bring them out sooner, if he wills it. Lift up prayers to God for your family member & trust the process. Pray that your loved one will keep the faith & use this time to grow closer to God. Ask other Christians to pray for your family member. Yes, seek any means available to procure an early release, but I pray that your family member will grow where God has allowed them to be planted. Grow in Grace! Vickie

    The psalmist express how venerable we're really are as human beings. He also describes our sinful nature and how we can't move forward w/o God's grace and mercy. I really see myself in the psalm because I need God's grace in my life. We're saved by His grace.

    The oil for the lamps is the Holy Spirit.

    The bridegroom took the virgins that had their oil lamps full and the went to the marriage supper. Matthew 25:1-12

    Like Noah's ark, THE DOOR WAS SHUT.

    Verse 11: Lord, Lord, open to us!

    Verse 12: He opens the door and says,

    I KNOW YOU NOT.

    Sounds similar to some other stories, like:

    Didn't we prophesy in your name? Cast out demons in your name? Chapter 7 verses 21-23.

    Clearly this indicating mid-trib. Scripture writes that after the dead in Christ are raised, then those alive in Christ, will go with Him to a marriage supper as the Bride of Christ.

    Enter the Antichrist to begin his reign of terror. One world money, one world religion, one world government. Sorta like game of thrones but it's not a game.

    Why not skip it and be born again NOW?

    Will YouTube steal away your first Love?

    Will you be captured by wizards that peep and mutter (remember AOL days; logging online?) Isaiah heard that maybe.

    Stay true to your first love.

    As disciples of Jesus, we are supposed to be reaching out to the lost. You can do that here, if you can spare time from dissecting doctrine. I mean no harm. I say it longingly.

    Jesus was a Jew from the middle east, so he likely had the skin tone as most everyone does in that area. Also, people walked outside everywhere so he likely was very tan. But I wish people weren't so tied into race all the time as if they're hoping Jesus is a certain skin tone of their desires so they feel a certain way or belong to a certain fictional club. When people think about race so much, talk about it, treat others differently because of it, they have become the dictionary definition of racists, which is the vary thing a most of them claimed they wanted to avoid.

    [Brass is made of copper which is REDDISH GOLDEN, not black] as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

    Page 2.

    We can look at Jesus' prayer to the Father at the Mt. of Olives (Matthew 26:39): Jesus, in His mental agony of the great cost of redemption of mankind before Him, cries to the Father to remove this cup of suffering from Him, but that the Father's Will only be done in this. Did God sympathize with Him & said, "Yes Son, I will spare you, the world is unworthy of my Love"? We know that God's Will was that the full payment for sin & man's redemption was the sole purpose for Christ's coming to Earth. Jesus, as a MAN in pain, cried out to the Father for relief, but the Father's Response was that, pain & death had to be endured for the 'greater good' that mankind can once again be restored.

    What I've shared here DaLanie, is that we must, as God's children can come to Him with our praises & also our concerns. He delights to hear us & answer us. But we have to take into account that His Answers to us will always be according to His Will, His Perspective of the situation, & His Timing. We may feel that He doesn't hear us, or that He isn't seeing the situation as we are seeing it, but we know that our loving Father makes no mistakes & His Will will be performed to the last detail. So hang in there & look to Him expectantly & be thankful for all that transpires in this legal matter. You can use human means that are available to you (nothing wrong with that, as God works through all people; e.g. doctors, politicians, etc.), but we need to remember, that "it is God Who works both in you to will & to do of His good pleasure". (Philippians 2:13); and this working is not only in you for your maturing in Christ, but also in all your circumstances. Just trust Him fully in this matter & continue to love Him no matter the outcome - He does ALL things well.

    DaLanie, okay, I do understand the restrictions for visiting at present, though no doubt, these will ease in the weeks ahead. The matter of prayer & specifically the answers we expect from God, has resulted in some folk overjoyed in answers received & others disappointed & wondering whether God even heard them.

    Prayer is essentially a child of God's conversation with his/her Father. It can comprise of many things, but mainly in praise & worship and in petition. Your urgent & longing prayer to the Father is for His intervention in your loved one's predicament & for the forces that acted against him/her be dealt with. All we can do in our petitioning to God is to first love Him & obey Him in everything He asks of us. Secondly, we have to come to Him in simple faith (James 5:15, 16: speaks of prayer of faith & effectual, fervent prayer). Thirdly, we must pray according to His Will (1 John 5:14, 15: is about asking about matters that are in His Will, & if so, He will hear us (not that He doesn't receive our prayers, but that He hears with the intention of responding)). Fourthly, that His answers to our prayers are not always the way we would like it to be, i.e. God has His reasons that encompass a larger view of the matter than we have, or His timing is different, His purposes are unknown to us, etc.

    Who are the martyrs at the opening of the 5th seal?
  • CARLOS RAMIREZ TREVINO on Revelation 1:8
    In Daniel 10:21, Gabriel makes reference to the Book of Truth and what is written in it. Is what is written in the Book of Truth or Book of Life, as it is called in the NT, what God knew would happen or what God wrote He would do? Are the names written in the Book of Life those God knew would believe, or those God decided to save? Are the vessels of Romans 9 what God knew He was going to do, or what God determined to do? Are God's Plans, plans or things He knew would take place?

    God created with a Purpose. He created with a Plan. Can an architect design a house without a Purpose? Can he build it without a Plan? To say that God only knew what was going to happen, make His statements about what He is going to do, meaningless. Did God just simply know the earth was going to be flooded and warned Noah? Or did God do it on Purpose? Did God promise not to destroy the earth again with a flood, because He knew that was what He was going to do? Is God a seer that merely reveals what He sees in the future?

    There is a misconception that because God is eternal and not subject to time and space, He can observe past, present and future. And that therefore, He knows everything. Is He like the train hobbyist that builds a train set with hills and roads and stands over it observing everything that takes place. So, did God create the universe and mankind, or was it something He just happened to know would happen on its own?

    If the Future has control, does God? I can be omniscient and know how everything functions, yet not know what I am going to do tomorrow. God is neither limited by His omniscience, nor by the Future. Have a look at Isaiah 23:8, "Who planned this against Tyre...? The LORD of Hosts planned it, to defile all its glorious beauty, to disgrace all the renowned of the earth." Not only is God telling us that He Planned it, He is telling us He Planned it with a Purpose.

    Your thinking is that God created, then stepped back and let things happen. But is that the case?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Psalms 8
    I just posted something about it. Go have a look soon.
  • CARLOS RAMIREZ TREVINO - in Reply on Matthew 24:38
    Chris, there are really 3 words. Plan, Purpose and Foreknowledge. Although they are all closely related, let me start with a definition Foreknowledge, although you're probably already familiar with it. I think, and I have adopted the position of the Reformers, because it is the most appropriate. Foreknowledge, as used in the Bible, is more closely associated with 'Pre-Ordination'. Acts 2:23 says God delivered Christ up by the determined counsel and foreknowledge of God.

    Some ascribe it to God's intuition or omniscience. But there are philosophical, theological and historical issues with it. What God knows will be a historical fact or event, He can't change. Why? Because if God knows something, He knows it to be fact. If God 'knows' Christ is going to die on the Cross and something, God Himself changes it, then He was mistaken. What we can say He knew is that Christ was going to be crucified, but He changed it to something else.

    Instead, God tells us in Isaiah 44-48 that He can do things at that moment. So, God knows things about what is going to happen and He tells us about them, not because He is somehow intuitively aware of the Future, but because He planned it that way. That is how He wanted it to happen. Romans 8, Isaiah 46:10-13.

    God doesn't just know beforehand what is going to happen, He makes it happen that way. When God said Esau would serve Jacob, He also said that's the way He intended it. That was His doing, not a natural consequence of events He just happened to be aware of beforehand. The argument is that limiting God to 'Foreknowledge' about the Future, limits Him. Why? Because He could only do what He knows He is going to do, not what He wants to do.

    Acts 4:28, They did what your power and will had decided beforehand should happen.

    That said, the fact that God is Omniscient cannot be denied or diminished. But to argue that 1,000 years is like a day, to support Omniscience, takes the verses out of context Psalms 90:4. Reference is to speed of time.

  • Chris H - in Reply on 1 Peter 2:1
    In reply to Eliot on I Peter 2:1. To trust in the Lord is to have faith in Him and His ability to feed you, faith is good, as it is faith alone that saves. But please do not think that God expects you to sit around and do nothing and wait for Him to put food on your plate, as faith is only evidenced by works; works which you have done in planting the garden by which He will feed you.

    To do otherwise is presumption, and presumption is the devils counterfeit for faith, notice the devils temptation of Jesus in the wilderness.

    "Then the devil taketh Him up into the holy city, and setteth Him on a pinnacle of the temple, and saith unto Him, If Thou be the Son of God, cast Thyself down: for it is written, "He shall give His angels charge concerning Thee: And in their hands they shall bear Thee up, Lest at any time Thou dash Thy foot against a stone."

    The devil tempted the Lord to show His faith by casting Himself to the ground from the top of the temple, but to do so would have been presumption, even though the Scriptures declares that the Father would have prevented Him from "dashing his foot against a stone."

    It is not possible that we should entertain the idea that Jesus was lacking in faith; Jesus declared to Satan, "It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God."

    Jesus refused to go outside the path of obedience, and He would not force Providence to come to His rescue.

    By your planting the garden to provide for your needs as well as for those of your children, you have shown perfect trust in the Lord, for it is now that He can work in giving the increase, and providing the food for your needs.
