  • A Jewish Wedding vs Being Caught Up to Jesus on Matthew 26
    These are actual 7 steps of a Jewish wedding.

    1. First, the Jewish groom barters with the father of the bride. They get together and they go back-and-forth, and barter as to what the deal is going to be.

    2. Once they reach an agreement, the future bride is brought in. And if she approves of it, all three of them drink out of the covenant cup, which means from that time forward they are betrothed.

    3. The groom goes back to his father's house to build their living quarters. It is built right off of the family home. And once the wedding takes place, and they are now married, they will go back to his family's home, and there will be living quarters that will be for them.

    4. The father of the groom decides when the living quarters are done, and when he can go get his bride. What does that tell us? We don't know the time or the hour. It has to be a minimum of one year because it is a time of purity for her. The groom can go get his bride when his father decides it's time.

    5. When the marriage announcement is made, catch this: the people who have already been invited to the wedding feast, they take their positions along the parade route, because the groom is going to get his bride. And there are people stationed in position all the way along the route. They join the parade as it passes by. It is called a parade.

    6. When the groom reaches the bride's house, he stands at a distance and blows the shofar, the trumpet, for the bride to come out and meet him. And the wedding takes place at that time. Do you see anything in there about prophecy? The groom comes to get his bride, and he stands a ways off and blows the trumpet, and she comes out to meet him.

    7. The parade goes back to the groom's house and the wedding feast begins. All of the guests in the parade gather in the Fellowship Hall, and the door is shut. This is not an open public thing.

    Compare this to prophecy in Matthew Chapter 25

    COMMENTARY

    "Satan is styled the "accuser of the brethren" (Revelation 12:10. Comp." "Job 1:6; Zechariah 3:1), as seeking to uphold his influence among" "men by bringing false charges against Christians,

    with the view" of weakening their influence and injuring the cause with which they are identified.

    He was regarded by the Jews as the accuser "of men before God, laying to their charge the violations of the" "law of which they were guilty, and demanding their punishment."

    "The same Greek word, rendered "accuser," is found in John 8:10" "(but omitted in the Revised Version); Acts 23:30, 35; 24:8;" "25:16, 18,

    in all of which places it is used of one who brings a" charge against another."

    Mishael: I'm not saying we should tickle ears or stroke egos.

    We should at least spend an equal amount of time Edifying the Brethern. Encouraging, lifting up wilting spirits, undergirding;

    Standing in the gap and in the hedges, sitting in the watchtowers, even,

    Interceding for the Saints, as Jesus is doing.

    We talk the talk, but can we walk the walk of Jesus Christ? All of this knowledge and do we spend time in the Prayer Request room? Praying for the little people? What would Jesus do?

    I don't say this in anger or in accusation. I'm just weary of hoping for change.

    Have a great Saturday. God bless.

    Comments by Alex about the Woman in Revelation 12 v 5. The law which came 430 yrs after the Abrahamic Covenent did not make void the PROMISE TO ABRAHAM. The Abrahamic Promise was multiplication, I will multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven, This was the Only Promise that God made that he swore by his veryself. The Woman is the very best example of multiplication, Christ has sowed his seed in this WOMAN which is humanity,its her Child that is a baby Christ that is gona be multiplied as the Stars of Heaven Impling her Child are children meaning many . In the last days God is gonna turn the hearts of the FATHERS to the Children meaning the H.G PLURAL.Remember her Child, the manchild is gonna rule the whole world simply b/c he is gona be born in the hearts of humanity and this is how satan is gonna be destroyed by that GREAT PROMISE of multiplication of Christ seed, the words of the new covenant, the parable of the sower and his seed etc. His seed will bruise your head etc our carnal minds is satans head. In Revelation 12 we see that there is war in heaven meaning in our minds our spirits etc But the manchild wins he is the result of Christ seed etc We be the WOMAN.This 12 th chapter is solely multiplication of Christ seed, which are the children of the kingdom which fulfills the law. THIS WOMAN is like the Mona Lisa of the new covenant for us sinners, she is screaming we must be bornagain of an incoruptible seed then the law will be fulfilled by multiplcation of Christ seed etc. them that are born of God cannot sin, Whats so beautiful about this woman is she is HUMANITY, If i be lifted up i will draw ALL MAN UNTO ME. OK GBU

    Your latest comment is after religious and man-made doctrines (Isaiah 29:13; Colossians 2:18; 1 Tim. 1:6,7; Titus 1:14) and not after Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Galatians 4:8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Revelation 12:9).

    The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God (1 Corinthians 2:14), and we know that ye have not the love of God in you (John 5:42). Therefore our message remains the same: Ye must repent and invite you to learn what it means. see message a few comments down.

    He that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man (1 Corinthians 2:15).

    Revelation 12 V 5 Comments by Alex about being bornagain of an incorruptible seed,THE Woman in Revelation 12 is the best example of the new birth.And she keeps the COMMANDMENTS simply b/c she has been born of God her Child is a baby Christ .Remember them that are born of God cannot sin KEEPING THE COMMANDMENTS means we love our neighbor as our selves and God with all our hearts on these 2 commandments hang all the laws and the prophets. But this is not possible without being bornagain of that incorruptible seed meaning the words of the new covenant that are gonna be sown in our hearts. Her Child is a baby Christ which is the H.G. The multiplication of Christ the Child of PROMISE. Her TESTIMONY means the seed of CHRIST, Even in th natural a mans seed is his testimony. Her child is the testimony of Christ his seed etc. Christ IS THE FATHER of her Child . Them that are born of GOD CANNOT SIN Thats how she keeps the commandments, thats how he will fulfill the law by making it impossible to sin via his seed etc. What is so wonderfull about this woman is she is humanity that is gonna be born of God, Her child is the real H.G. The child of Promise making it impossible to sin as them that are born of God cannot sin. Jesus said he that soweth that good seed is the son of man,Thats how the woman got pregnant she heard the words of Christ ( his seed ) His voice etc which caused her much sorrows a pregnancy, B/C i have spoken these words sorrows have filled your hearts but after the child comes ( the H.G ) Her sorrows are turned into Joy. Thats y he is saying unless you receive the kingdom as a lil child you will in no wise enter there in.Revelation 12 v 10 John decribes the Child as the Kingdom, and salvation is now come etc. And the woman keeps the COMMANDMENTS simply b/c them that are born of God cannot sin.Doncha see that keeping the commandments fulfills the law simply b/c the woman has been born of God that new birth etc.Its love that fulfills the law.But without his WORD we have no love.
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Matthew 26
    Alex, you are correct, when we are born again we cannot sin because we believe the words that Christ has spoken. Ezekiel 36:24-27 For I (Christ) will take you (those born again) from among the heathen, and gather you out of all the countries, and will bring you into your land (kingdom of heaven, Christ in you). (vs) 25 Then will I (Christ in you) sprinkle clean water (baptism of Christ, baptism of Spirit, Christ in you) upon you, and ye shall be clean, from all your filthiness, and from all your idols ( works of your hands), will I (Christ) cleanse you. (vs) 26 A new heart (mind of Christ, the new heaven) also will I (Christs works, I am the potter you are the clay) give (grace) you, and a new Spirit (Christ in you) will I [Christ in You, (I John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons or God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear [to you, the day of the Lord, today is the day harden not your heart (mind)] , we (children of the resurrection) shall be like him (Christ): and I will take away the stony heart (carnal mind, old heaven) out of your (carnal) flesh, and I will give (grace) you an heart (mind of Christ, new heaven) of (Spirit) flesh. (vs) 27 And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause (working of Christ, causing us to love our brothers, love our enemies,no sin) you to walk in my statutes (love all) and to keep my judgements (words), and do them. Psalms 92:4-6 For though Lord, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands. (vs) 5 O Lord, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep. (vs) 6 A brutish man (beast) knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this. Psalms 64:4 Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee.....
  • Adam - in Reply on Matthew 26
    Hi Earl,

    I believe the opposite of what you stated, because of what I see in the scriptures. God forgiving our sin and cleaning us is different than claiming someone cannot sin- that it's impossible. That's a logical leap into a whole different territory in which there's a mountain of scripture warning us against sin (including Christians) and no scriptures saying it's impossible for us to sin. It's also different than God 'not seeing sin' due to grace covering us as long as we're following Christ (a Christian). The old testament verses above do not mean someone cannot sin. If no one can sin, what's the point of asking for forgiveness? If no one can sin, what's the point of avoiding sin and striving to be perfect like Jesus said? If no one can sin, what's the point of spreading the gospel? If no one can sin, then you can ignore the Bible and just follow the world and do whatever sin you want with no consequence? The Bible already said that's not the case. Paul wrote about his fleshly struggles to sin- if there was no sin would it make sense that he would write that? If no sin, does that mean you can't blaspheme the holy spirit, either? Why would Jesus preach and challenge his followers with all these instructions if they couldn't sin and their actions were irrelevant. Satan is the father of lies and one of these teachings is truth and one is a lie. They are not both true. So, if satan was going to deceive someone is it likely they would deceive someone into being 'gooder' than they need to be or to be 'badder'- to convince them it's ok to sin, that you will surely 'not' be punished for it. To me that sounds like the same being behind the 1st temptation in the garden of eden- the father of lies is always not far away from any false teaching. Once saved, always saved is another teaching people often distort in order to justify sinning and blaspheming against God.

    Here's what the Bible actually says:

    James 2:17

    Romans 6:15

    Hebrews 10:26

    Romans 7:22

    Matthew 7:21

    John 14:15

    Matthew 5:13

    Matthew 7:26-27

    Ephesians 5:5-6

    Romans 11:19-23

    God bless...
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Matthew 26
    Adam, it is not possible for us (carnal man) to not sin. When you are born of the Spirit you no longer have a carnal mind, but you are given (graced) with the mind of Christ. This grace was bestowed on us by the power of the resurrection. Coming to this truth takes hundreds and hundreds of hours in Gods word and the gracing of the Holy Spirit. I John 3:8-9 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested (revealed), that he (Christ) might destroy the works of the devil (carnal mind). Whosoever is born of God doth not sin; because his (Christ) seed remaineth in him: and he (child of the resurrection, birthed by the woman: Revelation 12:1) cannot sin, because he is born of God. Philippians 2:5-6 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: (vs) 6 Who, being in the form (image of God) thought it not robbery to be equal with God: John 5:18 Therefore the Jews sought to kill him, because he not only healed on the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father (who is your Father) making himself equal with God. Does God sin. Ephesians: 4:13 Till we all come into the unity of the faith (Christ), and or the knowledge (mind of Christ) of the Son of God, unto a perfect (mature) man, unto the measure of the fulness of Christ:
  • Adam - in Reply on Matthew 26
    Earl, thanks for your response.

    If you believe it's impossible for a Christian to sin, does that mean tonight your or I can commit any sin we'd like and it wouldn't be sin? I'm a Christian and just like Paul have struggles of the flesh and part of me would really like to commit a fleshly sin tonight. Is your belief that I can proceed to do that and not be sinning? What if I do the same tomorrow and the next day for the rest of my life and add more sins too, do you truly believe there be no consequence? At what point does a Christian suddenly become 'was never a Christian'?

    Did you hover over any of the verses above and do you feel they are consistent with what you're saying here, like Hebrews 10:26?
  • Stephen - in Reply on Matthew 26
    Joshua, in your reply on mathew 26. Respectfully your wrong. heres scripture to back it up. You stated above that If we continue our old practice - our dead in our sins way of living AFTER we become saved, we were never saved/born again to begin with(Hebrews 10:26, Hebrews 10:38-39, 1 John 2:15, 2 Peter 2:20-22). My scripture to back it up mathew 18:12. talks about the lost sheep.... i was saved before and wandered away. i am currently PURGING sin out of my life as you ARE CORRECT when you state that you dont continue in your sinful ways once you become a new creature... i just wanted to point out though that just because someone has gone astray and dead in sins and trespasses it DOES NOT mean that they werent already saved to begin with. Respectfully, stephen
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Matthew 26
    Adam, I do not think you understand what it means to be born again. How did Christ not sin. He was born of God and the Father keep him from sinning. The Holy Ghost came upon Mary (woman) and she conceived and birthed a child (Christ, the first born Son). The Holy Ghost comes upon us (we are impregnated) and after gestation (spending hours in Gods word and being graced with the Holy Spirit) you (woman, Revelation 12:1) give birth to a child (us, the first fruit of Christ). The same Holy Ghost that Fathered Christ, Fathers you, the same God that kept Christ from sinning keeps you from sinning. I Timothy 2:14-15 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman (symbolic of us) being deceived was in the transgression. (vs) 15 Notwithstanding she (woman, us, the woman in Revelation 12:1) shall be saved in childbearing (new child of the Holy Ghost), if they (women,us) continue in the faith (in Christ) and charity (in Christ) and in Holiness (in Christ) with sobriety (in Christ).
  • Adam - in Reply on Matthew 26
    Earl, thanks for the reply. It appears you avoided the questions being asked and instead used a straw man fallacy. I think the Bible does not support the information you have provided here and I shared ample scriptures supporting the opposite view. The fact is it's easy to become a Christian, but continuing to follow Christ for the duration of ones life is another matter. There are many documented cases of real Christians choosing to leave the faith. The ex-Christian forum on Reddit has 71,000+ members. People claiming they weren't Christians in the first place might be a cop out to explain the reality they don't want to face- that Christians can indeed lose their salvation. Jesus preached to fear the Lord and put effort and strive to avoid sin. 'go and sin no more'- if people were incapable of sinning Jesus wouldn't have kept saying that to his followers over and over and kept warning them through parables over and over. So, I believe the scripture shows this is a big deception to believe that Christians can't sin. This is surely from satan, because he loves to get Christians to believe it's ok to sin, and they sure do. They do regularly, even intentionally, because they believed the lie that they can live in the world and follow the world instead of following Jesus with no consequences. One of us is wrong. I don't believe God has stripped anyone of their freewill when they follow Him. If this were true then it would have been impossible for an angel in heaven like satan to rebel and be cast out. This is important enough to pray and ask God what the real truth is. Salvation is very important. Jesus didn't die so people can abuse his grace and slap Him in the face while they follow the world in sin. Unfortuantely, some luke warm Christians will go to hell- God is the judge. Matthew 7:14. Grace covers Christians who actively follow Christ, not those who follow evil. And all, incuding Christians, have the ability to do evil. I know you disagree and think this is a lie, but this is all comes direct from the Bible. May God bless you.
  • What is apostasy on Matthew 26
    What is Apostasy?

    2 Thessalonians 2:3

    Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction

    Hebrews 3:12

    Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God.

    Galatians 1:8-9

    But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I SAY AGAIN, If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you (first) received, let him be accursed.

    2 Timothy 3:1-9

    But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.

    1 Timothy 4:1-3

    Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of LIARS whose consciences are seared (burned), who forbid marriage and require abstinence from meats that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.

    John 6:66

    After this many of his disciples turned back and no longer walked with him (Jesus).

    Hebrews 10

    How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has spurned the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of Grace?

    Revelation 3:16

    So, because you are lukewarm, and NEITHER hot nor cold, I will Spit you out of my mouth.

    We invested 20K in self-publishing the book 'A World Deceived' in 2005, and have invested our personal money into the website for 15 years, including the website administrator. The first two distributors of the book went bankrupt and there has been no distribution since 2008. We have no Tax-Free status with Revenue Canada.

    It should be noted that in over 36 years of service we have never collected/received, solicited or requested donations. The gift of 'Life' was freely given and freely do we give to all those that believe (2 Kings 5:16; Matthew 6:26; 10:8).

    With great swelling words you speak about 'love' but the latest comments you posted just confirmed that your comments were based on religious and man-made doctrines (Matthew 15:9) and that you have not the love of God in you (John 5:42). For that reason our message remains the same: Ye must repent.

    It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It actually means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' of what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom mankind has been deceived (Revelation 12:9) and what people must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (Matthew 7:7; John 14:17).

    You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), as mankind follows after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Galatians 4:8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Revelation 12:9).

    It is only by revelation of God that people will come to know the true Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Galatians 1:16; Ephesians 3:3,5; Revelation 1:1)

    lComments by Alex about water baptism I behold water baptism it was of God,But without the shedding of blood there was no remission of sins even in the O.T. without the shedding of blood there was no remission. John says i have need to be baptised of you which was H.G. baptism. Jesus told his disciples John washed you with water but i will baptise you with the H.G. AND FIRE, a heavenly washing of the heart. That new heart and new spirit. Thats y John was preaching behold the lamb of God that taketh away the sins of the world which was indicative of the blood.The cross was indicative of the blood of GODS LAMB. Nothin can be added to it Absolutly nothing. Not even water baptism, without making the blood of the lamb an offence to God. It was the ultimate washing ( holy ghost baptism ) Thats y God rebuked Peter saying what i have made clean do not call common or unclean, peter was impling the blood was insufficient a slap in the face of God when he was commanding water baptism. Thats y the lord was so upset with Peter all the UNCLEAN ANIMALS in the sheet was the church, Humanity that was made clean by the blood of the lamb not water baptism that peter was commanding,God was upset with Peter commanding water baptism after out lord had died to make us clean,As Paul said water baptism wd make the blood of no effect,Its like saying the cross was insufficient a slap in the face of God. After Peter understood the vision he says then remembered i the words of our LORD John baptised you with water but i will baptise you with the H.G AND FIRE, Who was i to withstand God. Paul knew that water baptism wd make the blood of the Lamb of no effect. Thats y he said i thank God that i baptised none of you,Paul feared of making the blood of the lamb of no effect. Peter didn't realize the enormity of the CROSS THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB.All the unclean animals in that sheet was humanity th world that was made Clean by the blood not water gbu.

    Amen brother God Baptize the whole world with a flood but sinwas still in the world
  • The Demonic - in Reply on Matthew 26
    That's because satan survived the flood. However, his "angel" followers drowned. That's when they became demons. No longer having bodies the seek bodies: in pigs, other animals or, in wicked human beings.

    They can't get inside of a Christian unless they are apostate: have spurned Christ to follow the world. People in satanic religions routinely allow demons access to their bodies. With a body, the demons can hurt, kill, cause accidents, sickness, drug and alcohol dependence. I guess you could say wicked people are weak.

    Christians who are indwelled by the Holy Spirit of God (Paul said our bodies are the Temple of God)...cannot be invaded by demons.

    That's why we are told to keep our human bodies swept of idols and garnished with the Word that we read in our Bibles. They know we can cast them away with some

    IT IS WRITTEN + a Bible scripture stored in your heart. That's your sword of the Spirit !

    If it was the Passover Seder, why did they think Judas was on his way to buy for the feast? Also, how can Jesus be the Passover Seder if he was killed the day after the Seder. Meaning this has to be the day before. Food for thought.
  • Prophesy on Judas Iscariot - in Reply on Matthew 26
    Jesus already knew what Judas Iscariot was going to do; but not his other disciples.

    There was an Old Testament prophesy about the event. Judas fulfilled it.

    Psalms 41:9 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.
  • Alexander BarMikiel - in Reply on Matthew 26
    (My rant is on what I meant, I apologize at its length) That is very much not what I was saying, I mean that the last supper couldn't have been Passover, Passover is at the beginning of the feast of unleavened bread, which is a Sabbath. Even if Judas could have gotten things on the Sabbath, what could they have prepared for if not the Seder. You're right about what you said, it's just not what I was implying was wrong. If Jesus was the Passover lamb he had to be killed at the same time all of the other lambs were being slaughtered for Passover. He arrived 10 days before slaughter, as was the law. He was without blemish as was the law. He was even the equal sacrifice, he was the only person in history born of God except Adam; Paul said that Jesus paid Adam's sin (ours as well) but he was, therefore, an equal sacrifice to Adam. He fulfilled hundreds of prophecies, came out of Egypt (salvation from Egypt), baptized at 30 (as was the law for priests), became the high priest (after Melchizedek), fulfilled all of Psalms 22 (no broke bone, pierced hands, out of joint, hanged on a tree, etc...), he restituted the gentiles to Israel, he hasn't wed the perfect virgin yet (that's Revelation 21 where he does that), but he has fulfilled every prophecy except a few to come. What I am saying is, if he did all of this, if he fulfilled all of these prophecies, fulfilled the festival of Sukkoth, fulfilled Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashana, EVEN Hanukkah! Why would he not die on the day when the Passover was supposed to die? It drives me crazy, he is a perfect God, why would he set up a festival literally about passing over sin (Egypt being bondage, bondage in sin specifically) and have him die on the WRONG DAY! I'm not even going to get into why people think it would be Sunday that he rose. I do apologize for the rant, it is completely not directed at you, but toward an idea that I believe has no basis in the bible but has its basis in a painter from the 1300's misinterpretation of it.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 26
    As a rule, I don't comment on any Passover discussions. I believe Jesus is the Son of Man and he doesn't make mistakes. I leave it at that.

    What I commented on, is scriptures show that Jesus was recorded as healing the sick and lame on Sabbath at times, which caused anger from the Pharisees & Sadducees.

    I have no more comment on this.
