Those of us who treat Daniel’s 70th week as consecutive (ie. not separated from the 69 preceding weeks), are sometimes asked, “well, when was it?” Here is the short answer:
first day of seventieth week – 1st Nisan (27th March) AD 27
last day of seventieth week – 29th Adar (8th March) AD 34
Here are the dates in diagrammatic form, showing key chronological markers. I’ll get back soon to expand on this. We can discuss the significance of the last half of the ‘week’ too if you like.
Are we born spiritually alive or spiritually dead? What is your Scriptural justification for that?
The strongest claim I can find for being born spiritually dead is what Jesus says to Nicodemus:
"Verily, Verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto you that you must be born again." (John 3:5-6)
"He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him, to them He gave power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His Name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man;...
When Jesus died on the cross did God unleash his wrath on him? If yes, is that wrath forever satisfied? I apologize if this is a stupid question but when I googled it I got so many different answers. Half of the articles say that Christs death was in no way the result of Gods wrath and the other articles said that God the Father unleashed his wrath upon Jesus and that wrath is forever satisfied. It would make sense that God would have to unleash his wrath somehow why not on Jesus? I mean how else is salvation possible but by the death of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?
Also if yes, what about Jesus's wrath? How was that satisfied?
The Church Has Become A 'Pillar of Salt'
Recently the Washington National Cathedral in Washington D.C. interred the ashes of a man who was murdered because of his homosexuality. While this is laudable it is another sign of our societal decay. Jesus Christ said that the last days of mankind would be like Sodom and Gomorrah, and it has come true, for the church has now become a 'pillar of salt'!
The actions of the Washington National Cathedral is liken to Lot's wife in the story of Sodom and Gomorrah where two angels instructed Lot and his family to flee the wickedness of Sodom and Gomorrah and don't look back. All of Lot's family heeded the warning except Lot's wife who looked back and instantly turned into a pillar of salt.
ok, so I'm concerned about where the Cm&a stands on such topics that have become widespread today. It is no doubt that alliance churches have embraced these doctrines (just search on google). As one who attended an alliance seminary, I experienced firsthand some of it at hand via spiritual formation in books on the topic. On a biblical level, it's difficult to find agreement on the topic as it's not present. Thus I find it a growing concern. Love to hear your thoughts. I was considering on getting ordained but it's things like these that make me have second thoughts.
I'm one who seeks to be in a place where expository preaching and Bible studies are present.
Compare Luke 10:22 in the King James Version Bible to Lu 10:23 in the Joseph Smith Translation.
All things are delivered to me of my Father; and no man knoweth that the Son is the Father, and the Father is the Son, but him to whom the Son will reveal it.
It happened. I was strong in my faith and I have fell into doubt. I am doubting Christianity and the Bible. I see some many things speaking of false religions and I am wondering what if Christianity is really a false religion. Is Christianity the true religion? How do you know it is? Regions like Islam claim they are true. What if Christianity is really the deception, which I don’t think it is. I am trying to pray hard to get a confirmation from God that Christianity is true. Hopefully, sometime soon God can reveal the truth to me. Can someone help me.
I have already pretty much harmonized the 3 chapters of the Olivet Discourse and I believe I have proved that Matthew 24 and Luke 21 are indeed one in the same events.
[The general view is that Luke's Jerusalem discourses are speaking of 70ad and differ from Matt 24 and Mar 13]
Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 harmonized
LUKE 21 MATTHEW 24 OLIVET DISCOURSE CONTROVERSY [Poll Thread]
Harmonization of Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21, Revelation and Josephus
I am going to attempt to tie these 3 chapters in with Revelation and show that Luke and Revelation are the same event [as is Matt 24 and Luke 13]
Here are the 3 chapters of Luke's Jerusalem discourse I have been working on:
39 And some of the Pharisees from the crowd said to...
