    They broke that covenant and now there is a new covenant. Luke 22:20

    Jeremiah 31:31 “Look! The days are coming,” declares Jehovah, “when I will make with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah a new covenant. 32 It will not be like the covenant that I made with their forefathers on the day I took hold of their hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, ‘my covenant that they broke, although I was their true master,’* declares Jehovah.”

    the word ‘cleansed’ is more appropriate

  • September 19, 2014 at 7:38pm

    RAMJR……yes, the word ‘cleansed’ in more appropriate

    RAMJR…..”The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, & the earth and everything done in it will be burned up.” 2 Peter 3:8-10″

    Once again it will be the ungodly people not the planet. Sometimes when the scriptures speak of the heavens it is kingdoms or governments or people in high positions of power. The earth sometimes refers to people. example; the whole earth at one time spoke one language.
    2 Peter 3:5 For they deliberately ignore this fact, that long ago there were heavens and an earth standing firmly out of water and in the midst of water by the word of God; 6 and that by those means the world at that time suffered destruction when it was flooded with water. (the time of Noah)
    In verse 7. the heavens and the earth that now exist…… and then in 10. the heavens will pass away with a roar; is speaking of the governments and politcal systems and the elements which make up these systems will be dissolved and the earth or people the works will be exposed. It is symbolic because as we read in Psalms 37: 9-11 & 29 ………….the righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it.

    @RAMJR……..”the next time won’t be water…it will be fire.
    The center of the earth is molten lava, the sun, the stars…all heat…all designed for God’s purpose.”

    Psalms 37: 10,11 & 29
    The earth as a planet will not be destroyed, but the ungodly world will. Just like in the days of Noah.

    @adoptedlevite……”Prayer shouldn’t be recited anyway.”

    You are correct as we see in Matthew 6:7 When praying, do not say the same things over and over again as the people of the nations do, for they imagine they will get a hearing for their use of many words.

    It’s a model prayer and not meant to be recited word for word.

    @Mojo……..“An eye for an eye” vs. “Turn the other cheek” are themselves not in disagreement.
    Because it is talking about equal justice not personal revenge.
    Leviticus 24:19-22
    Hebrews 10:30 …………..”Vengeance is mine” Dueteronomy 32:35,36

    Psalms 110 is also quoted by Jesus in Mark 12:35 -37

    Green, though, believes that the psalm could also be a prophesy pertaining to Jesus Christ — an intriguing interpretation considering that it is Old Testament literature.

    The whole Bible reads like that much of it pointing to the future having a dual prophesy.
    another example is Psalms 110 which also refers to Jesus. There are many more.

    Suppose you wanted to eradicate your opposition.

    “Rather than a full-frontal assault, you might try subtlety instead. Say, the introduction of a lie that became repeated so often by those with influence it was accepted as truth.”

    That is just what Satan has done. He has put the idea that mankind has an immortal soul. In Genesis 3:1 – 5 Satan says to the woman “Did God really say that you must not eat from every tree in the garden?” and Eve told Satan what God had said about eating the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden; “You must not eat from it, no, you must not touch it ; otherwise you will DIE. Then Satan said to the woman “You certainly will not die.” For God knowsthat in the very day you eat from it, your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and bad.
    Satan was calling God a liar. Who do you want to believe God or Satan? For dust you are and dust you will return.
    Genesis 2:7 …………….and the man became a living soul. (person)
    We don’t have a soul we are a soul. So religions today have to lie to cover the lie so they come up with the immortal soul.
    Ecclesiastes 9:5 For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing at all…………..
    also read Ecclesiastes 3:18 – 22
    Then they have to come up with hell fire; the lie to cover the lie. and on and on and on……………………

    @RAP………First who said I was a Mormon, second it is you who lacks understanding of the scriptures and who Jesus really is. He is not part of some “trinity” or was he some kind of avatar when he was on earth. Jesus is not God he is the Son of God. Nowhere in the scripture do they refer to Jesus as Almighty God. There is only One true God. Psalms 83:18
    If Jesus really died then who resurrected him?

  • [1] August 24, 2014 at 9:39pm

    @RAP……..”jesus is a created spirit being ”

    The Bible refers to Jesus as the Firstborn of creation
    Hebews 1:6
    Colossians 1:15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.

    also the only-begotten son
    John 1:14,18 & 3:16,18

    {Byington} John 1:18 Nobody ever has seen God; an Only Born God, he who is in the Father”s bosom, he gave the account of him.
    { ASV } John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

    begotten = a past participle of beget. to procreate or generate (offspring especially of a male parent)

    @RAP……….”The Jesus of the scriptures is the everlasting Father Isaiah 9:6. He is ‘THE’ I AM’ ‘THE’ Mighty God ‘THE’ creator of all that is created including the angels and Lucifer ”

    Isaiah 9:6…………His name will be Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

    Notice it says Mighty God, not Almighty God. He will be our Eternal Father when he concludes his Millennial Reign. He will have fulfilled God’s original purpose. Jesus will then acknowledge his Father’s universal sovereignty by handing the Kingdom over to Him, that “God may be all things to everyone.”
    1 Corinthians 15:28 ………the Son himself will also subject himself to the One who subjected all things to him,

    Jesus will be our Eternal Father but at this time we are imperfect and sons of Adam
    1 Corinthians 15:45 ….”The first man Adam became a living person.” The last Adam (Jesus) became a life-giving spirit.”

    @TheRAP………….”I have done what is required of me by the scriptures and am not ashamed of it.

    Acts 5:42 & 20:20…..are you everyday in the temple and from HOUSE to HOUSE publicly teaching and declaring the good news about the Christ, Jesus
    also Matthew 24:14 ……………about the good news of the Kingdom and preaching in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations………….
    Are you doing that RAPTURE……………?

    Why does God allow evil and suffering?

    I have seen something further under the sun, that the swift do not always win the race, nor do the mighty win the battle, nor do the wise always have the food, nor do the intelligent always have the riches, nor do those with knowledge always have success, because time and unexpected events overtake them all. Ecclesiastes 9:11

    Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them.” And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” The former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:3,4

    Soon Satan’s system will be done away with and the earth will be as God intended it to be a paradise.

    Psalms 37:10 Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more; You will look at where they were, And they will not be there.
    Psalms 37:11 But the meek will possess the earth, And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.
    Psalms 37:29 The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it.

    This is God’s promise everlasting life on a paradise earth.

    Buy Faith………..For whosoever shall call upon the “title” of the Lord will be saved.

    The Bible says it, why don’t you believe it?

  • [-2] August 15, 2014 at 4:27pm

    Buy Faith……..I noticed you left out but that is to be expected.
    It also goes on to say……….
    Most names change to some extent when translated from one language to another. Jesus was born a Jew, and his name in Hebrew was perhaps pronounced Ye-shu’a', but the inspired writers of the Christian Scriptures did not hesitate to use the Greek form of the name, I-e-sous’. In most other laguages the pronunciation is slightly different, but we freely use the form that is common in our tongue. The same is true with other Bible names. How can we show proper respect for the One to whom the most important name of all belongs? Would it be never speaking or writting his name because we don’t know exactly how it was originally pronounced? Or, rather, would it be by using the pronounciation and spelling that are common in our language, while speaking well of its Owner and conducting ourselves as his worshipers in a manner that honors him?
