Re: Partial Rapture And Dispensational Punishment

So it means only Jews could be bond-servants - as the point is being made about the Lord's speaking in Rev 1?

Re: Partial Rapture And Dispensational Punishment

Had not heard that, re: "bond servants" being only Jews. Has anybody else heard this before?

Re: Leaving the LRC has consequences....

Thanks for sharing that. It's hard to make out everything on that chart - is the RecV in there?

I typically use the New American Standard because of it's reputation for strong adherence to the...

Re: Partial Rapture And Dispensational Punishment

Thanks for sharing! I'll put that in the ol' "pipe" and smoke on it. My first impression is - why would He write it only to the Jewish churches? All the churches being written to are in Asia, and...

Re: Leaving the LRC has consequences....

I used to think the RV was the best, and then I saw it was good, but not perfect. The RV is NOT a purely literal translation as some might want to think. And just like other translations, they used...

Re: Partial Rapture And Dispensational Punishment

Great list of the many raptures, Carol!

Concerning partial rapture, what about the promise to the church in Philadelphia to save them out of the "hour of trial", which I take to mean the...

Re: What are the Gold, Silver, and Precious Stones in 1 Cor 3:12?

Yes and AMEN! There certainly are specific aspects of Christ these different precious materials represent. As we focus on Christ and handle Him more and more, His elements are deposited with us -...

Re: Partial Rapture And Dispensational Punishment

Yes, the rewards, or loss thereof, are very clear. There is an accountability for what we do with the Son ("Christ in you the hope of glory") and the grace we've been given in the new covenant. Of...

Re: My Testimony

I, for one, certainly had good experiences with the LC and I know the Lord took me there originally (in a pretty miraculous way). This was several decades ago. But things degraded, which is only...

Re: Gordon Grahame Testimony (not LC)

At the 27:45 mark he said he became aware that this wasn't the first time he had acknowledged Christ. "Something in me had already received Him . . ." But then he lost his way as he got older.

Re: Gordon Grahame Testimony (not LC)

That was quite the testimony - thanks! I have a lot in common with this brother - I accepted Jesus when younger, but quickly went away from Him and didn't even know who He was. I spent years really...

Re: What is the Church really?

This reminds of something a brother I know said: "The world contains nothing of the church; but the church has everything in it from the world. What he meant was the world is the world, with its sin...

Re: How is the Virus Affecting You?

I remember when I used to be so frustrated about how slow things moved in DC. But then I realized the same thing - it's usually good that things in the federal government don't move so fast!

Re: How is the Virus Affecting You?

Amen and those are some of my fav verses! We are like sponges - whatever we focus on we absorb and start to take on those characteristics. Mankind in Adam is nothing but a train wreck, and these...

Re: Modalism

Yes, and hence the thought that although we can find verses for 3-in-1 AND 1-in-3, both are true. Why? Because He's God, and we can't effectively wrap our widdle minds around His nature.

Re: What is the Church really?

Agree. And there's also the temple aspect - a dwelling place of God in Spirit. Body, Bride, Building . . . the city coming down out of heaven as a bride adorned for her Husband!

Re: STUDY: White Police Officers NOT more likely to Kill Minorities

Velly intellesting . . . whichever side of the aisle you (ubiquitously speaking) tend toward, people have no doubt that the big, bad boogieman definitely comes from the other side.

Question What is the Church really?

At the work that has been done
By the visions of our Father
Touched by His loving Son.
