    Eze,. WOW your prayer request for other's needs is so powerful
  • A disciple
    Dewey J; We shouldn't be overly sensitive: no offense taken, Brother. With the things that we see (and can hardly believe) happening and increasing, we have volumes of warning and instruction and guidance in the Scriptures to prepare us mentally and spiritually for the opposition we are set to encounter. We should know that the transgressors coming to the full is God's determined judgment of them.
  • Dewey J
    A disciple, I didn't accuse you of adding to the scripture. That is a very serious charge to make especially against another Christian without sound evidence. I can tell by your posts that you have a very good understanding of the scripture. I concur with you and all who notice the rebellion of mankind toward God. Some say the greatest miracle is God's love and grace to man and man hate for God.
  • A disciple
    Hi Dewey; I don't think its exactly "adding to the word;" but something I heard from others, and I think makes sense. Time will tell of course! One thing is interesting too; how that even with all the plagues and punishments and the appearance of the two witnesses; those who are not killed outright by those judgments still refuse to repent or at all acknowledge the truth to give God glory.
  • A disciple
    Dewey; Enoch and Elijah were taken alive into heaven; and so we must conclude that their work is NOT finished, and that God took them aside till He would use them again at another time. The Scriptures say that "Elijah must come first:" the Lord doesn't use the real to identify types, and then not bring forth the real and the complete. John came in the Spirit and power of Elijah not to replace him.
