The time is wind'n up! But,at present (in general the church is weak becuz "the world is creep'n on a wide scale! Money hungry,we have turn from seekin' the Lord like Christians long ago! Christians(in general) we are lax and have too,much comfort ...Lots of "bling/bling" comfortable seats ...God forbid no air condition,so much to serve us and what happen with even 'whole hearted prayers? Fastin' truth is even Me,was so ignorant spiritually the blessing "fasting,meditate...On the things of God...If we could do without our cell fon...Retreat a few days just God & nature? My lord...Who knows how it could be?? Ps.91(all)

It's because we as His children are weak in our faith,our prayer, our fasting.... we are the weak link-NOT GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON or GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT. The weakness is all on us!Look at Moses,Elijah, ELisha, the Prophets. The bible tells us we can do all they did, & more...IF WE HAVE THE FAITH. It will make us sick when we get to heaven & see all the things we could've done for Christ if only we'd had enough faith to believe. God is not weak, we are!

Rhohda ... On the question of whether Satan is greater than God, I will accept that you did not mean to give the impression that your woords actually gave.

But can you answer the other questions:

Are you really saying ...

Satan is more powerful than Jesus and God?

That the RCC will rule Europe when Europe unites? Have you ever been to Europe?

That a united Europe will rule the world? Have you seen how puny Europe is?

Rhonda ... Are you really saying ...

Satan is more powerful than Jesus and God?
****

Of course not and YOU know that

however it is AMAZING that people cannot grasp the idea that the earth and its rulers will be destroyed by Christ

and it's no small wonder how religion DECEIVES mankind into believing the lie that Satan does NOT rule this earth

one reason MANY christian brands sell the idea of peace as if THEY are powerful enough to bring peace themselves

ONLY Christ will bring peace

YOU DO understand Christ FIGHTS Satan at the end of the age ...or have you been fed the lie that is a fairy tale within Holy Word of God?

Christ stated MANY called FEW chosen

Christ stated his flock is LITTLE ... those who truly follow TRUTH are the called out ones (aka church) called OUT from world of this god with NO power in Satans world - seeing ONE cannot be "called out" AND participate in the world which Christ WILL destroy when He FIGHTS powers who RULE earth at His return

LIES of men claiming Church of Jesus Christ is most powerful entity on earth

reality is most powerful entity on earth is silent right now - SHE is ruled by Satan WHO IS the god of this world

easily identified as rcc who claims "church" and is a state

becoming abundantly clear when this powerful entity steps into LAST reign of power wheneurope unites
---Rhonda on 3/13/11


Scott, if that is your purpose then why don't you learn the gospel of Christ? You have to get your information right in order to try to bring anyone to Christ. First of all you should tell them the Lord came incarnated as a man to die for our sins. Next you need to get rid of the Book of Mormon which Joseph Smith claimed came by the power of God and produced the most accurate and correct book on earth, which in reality has had to be corrected thousands of times to compensate for Smith's Poor grammar and spelling. It not only has those errors but errors in chronology in peoples names. The book is s fraught from beginning to end.

For the people in the US we like to explain things, we like logical, scientific explanations. God is of the spirit world.
We also like having arguments about predestination, dogmas, doctrine, is santa clause a sin, what type of toilet paper to use in the church building (seen it happen), etc. We (myself included) need to focus of getting people saved, acts of service, and focusing on things that matter to get non-christians to be christians.

The Body walks In Authority when it follows the Head.

Col 2:19 And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.

Col 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things he might have the preeminence.

John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing ye might have life through his name.

Philippians 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth,


Amen.

If you're waiting for a pre-trib rapture, you'll be among the first to fall down and worship Antichrist, michael_e.

No major denomination has EVER officially accepted Darbian pre-millennial pre-tribulation dispensationalism.

Even the Plymouth Brethren, of which John Darby was a founder, rejected it eventually.
---Cluny on 2/5/11


Ignatius, That's nice to know. I suppose that it's just a minority belief in the Baptist & local area's where I go. Most all I hear, is teaching on the rapture... before any trouble starts. Most I hear are not even mid-trib. It's always "Outa here before it even starts!" Of course I'm not hoping I'm right & they're wrong. It'd be great to not witness any of it. The best advice I can give is BE READY & PREPARED TO MEET GOD NOW-WHILE IT'S EASY TO DO SO!
---Reba on 1/28/11


"Cluny, (there is no pre-trib Rapture)... .. A-MEN AGAIN :) but I do think we are in the minority in believing this.
---Reba on 1/25/11"

We are not Reba. Many Protestants, Latin/Eastern Catholics, Orthodoxy, the Non-Chalcedonian Churches, the Church of the East, Assyrian Church of the East, among others, do not believe in the Pre-Trib Rapture fantasy. This comprise the vast majority of Christians.

The Pre-Trib Rapture theory (first arose after the 18th century) was never part of Apostolic Tradition. It is a man-made tradition.

In IC.XC.,

\\We as christians need to begin to use our power and authority that God has given us, to be more powerful.\\

God also said, "My strength is made perfect in weakness."

And He also says that He doesn't even THINK the same way we do. ("My thoughts are not your thoughts...")

So maybe what GOD means by power is not what we mean by it.
---Cluny on 1/24/11


Lori, there are those who think they are the Body of Christ and aren't. Then there are those who really are the Body of Christ and they are using their authority in Christ Jesus, they are the ones praying/interceding in the Spirit/preaching the Gospel to the lost, healing the sick, casting out demons, etc., Your question should read WHO is the Church of Jesus Christ? I think the bible calls them the Body of Christ.
---Donna5535 on 1/24/11


The church of Jesus Christ will always be the most powerful entity on earth. You just don't believe it. We as christians need to begin to use our power and authority that God has given us, to be more powerful. Christians need to give more money,time and service to the building of the Kingdom. Not just in our own cities and towns but all over the world.

\/When teh church is removed THEN all hell will break loose, and anti-christ will have his short moment of glory before the 2nd coming of Christ.\\

There's no such thing as a pre-trib rapture.

I'll have to go with Cluny here. WHO said we aren't? You're giving man and satan more glory and credit than you need to. The gates of Hell shall not prevail against the church.

I believe God is doing more through His Body than anyone can possibly know.

The mystery of Evil is getting worse and worse. The Church is the restrainer of evil. We are warned times will get worse and worse. 2 timothy 3, not better and better.

When teh church is removed THEN all hell will break loose, and anti-christ will have his short moment of glory before the 2nd coming of Christ.

Those who don't understand this will be totally disallusioned!

Jesus' Holy Spirit is the most powerful entity in the earth. And many churches today have no Jesus, have no Holy Bible, and have no Holy Ghost: but they have chosen for themselves broken cisterns, that can hold no water.
---Eloy on 1/22/11


Many Christians,churches,don't grasp the fact we as Christians with God,Jesus,and the Holy Spirit living within us have been given power over all the power of the enemy. We have power in Jesus Name to rebuke evil spirits. We have also been given the means to touch God with our love through prayer,praise,and worship and man doesn't do that enough. The more we learn the Word of God and touch God,the stronger we are in the Spirit and as we come together in unity of Spirit,preparing our hearts at home before we gather for a service,we can see a very Spiritually powerful church. We the body of believers are the church and the ones on earth are only what we make them through faith and love of God being always prepared to touch God.
---Darlene_1 on 1/22/11


Good question Lori: First, many believers aren't walking in the power of Jesus Christ. (Romans 1:16). Secondly, many believers aren't wearing the full armour of God. (Ephesians 6:10-18).

The world has sooo much to offer & keep us busy. That is the biggest set back for the Christian's growth. It's not the sins of the world so much as the staying too busy with life to stop & spend time in prayer & study alone with God. That's what keeps us from having the spiritual power from God that we should have.
---Reba on 1/21/11


Where did you get the idea it wasn't?
---Cluny on 1/21/11


First I appreciate this question. The Church of Jesus Christ should be the most powerful entity in the world. Satan is hindering by throwing many many many programs and other time-consuming activities in the way of the Church. Because most Christians fail to build themselves up in the Word of God(the Word of God is our foundation) and never grow strong. Another reason why the Church has no power is because there is no concentrated cooperative prayer activity.
