francis, you can use all the available Holy Bible versions that's out there (something like 30 exists), but if you're not born of the Spirit - it's not going to change nor profit you anything, period.

Jesus declared, "It is the spirit that quickeneth, the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life." John 6:63

As for "judgement", this is what Christ said, "In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." John 16:33 - ie in the Father's purpose and will, Christ has already conquered evil and this world. That's why I am a firm believer of predestination.

---kathr4453 on 10/14/12 "but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is."

In order to be on this earth, one needs a body composed of its elements.He shall appear in those elements, in power. We do not appear on earth, we remain changed, translated, beyond corruption and without flesh bodies, until the new heaven and earth are ushered in.

Not so for the saints of Israel, who must fulfill the agreement they made with YHWH.

They all, John included, will be raised to life on earth, like His at His return.
---Phil on 10/14/12


Second, if you can keep the commandments of God, you don't need Christ.---Mark_V. on 10/14/12

Revelation 12:17 keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Revelation 14:12 keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

1 Corinthians 7:19 the keeping of the commandments of God.

1 John 4:2 Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

1 John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

If your version does not command to keep the law/commandments of God please let me know. It is very possible that your version does not say that. In which case, you are excused.

what does judgment mean to you in these context?

Daniel 7:22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High, and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

Daniel 7:10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.

Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them:...and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

1 John 3:2
Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.

Philippians 3:21
Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

A false teacher says this:
Peter will not be with us, the body of Christ, in heaven. We will be changed into His likeness at His coming in clouds for us. 1Th 4:16----

---Phil on 10/13/12

Seems John will be changed like the BOC, and you say not Peter.

GARBAGE!
---kathr4453 on 10/14/12




The Unveiling of Jesus Christ was written for the future. The subjects in it are all Jewish oriented. It is written to the people He chose to represent His authority on earth, Abraham's physical offspring.

The nations (Gentiles,KJV) are subservient in John's account of the Lord's day.

There is no mention of Christ's body in Revelations. That is due to our being snatched away in clouds prior to the unveiling of the Lord on earth.
---Phil on 10/14/12


francis, when I read the word Judgment, I look up the context for which it was written. I don't take something literal if the context does not allow it.
Second, if you can keep the commandments of God, you don't need Christ. The reason He came to die was because no man could keep all the commandments. If they broke one, they broke all. You seem to believe you can, without breaking one, then you must be the only one in history other then Christ who can keep the whole law and Christ did not come for you. He came to save sinners. He said you should not lie, be prideful, to help the poor, not walk where you shouldn't walk, or say what you shouldn't say. He told the rich young ruler, sell everything and follow Him, have you sold everything?

I am using the KJV of the bible and this is what it says:

Revelation 12:17 keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Revelation 14:12 keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

1 Corinthians 7:19 the keeping of the commandments of God.

1 John 4:2 Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

1 John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

If you believe that the Bible is the word of God, then why argue against the bible? Does you bible also says in many places keep the commandments of God and have faith in Jesus?

2Ch_19:6 And said to the judges, Take heed what ye do: for ye judge not for man, but for the LORD, who is with you in the judgment.

Ac 9:15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles

Paul was severed by the Holy Spirit from the Twelve unto his own evangel. It is not another gospel, but it is different than the Kingdom message.

Paul was constrained in his ministry by the promises of God to the Fathers.

The Evangel of the grace of God could not fully proceed until God locked Israel in callousness for rejecting His apostles and prophets, Jesus being the Chief.

The message you retain is fit for earth, not the heavens.

Rattling chains of the prisoner is suppose to intimidate. It happens most when a free person is present.
---Phil on 10/13/12




francis, do you even know what's "keep the commandments of God" even means that was mentioned by Christ numerous times in His ministry? Keep the ten commandments as you understand it? If that was what Christ and His prophets and apostles meant, then there was no reason for Christ to die at Calvary, right?

Afterall, you insists that you can keep the commands of God and still belief in Christ. Then His death has no purposed, right? He should have just come and go and not die at all, since you have the ability to "keep the commandments of God" to be saved, right?
---christan on 10/13/12


Ellen Gould White (whose name adds up to 666) was a wizadress who peeped and muttered because she had a familiar religious spirit.

She herself said that her work bore either the stamp of God or that of the enemy. Considering her vast numbers of false prophecies, the answer is obvious.

She was a false teacher.

So are all those who follow after her.

I know she got a big surprise when she died and found out there was no such thing as soul sleep. I hope the succeeding surprises she got were pleasant ones.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

This is what is written in the bible, and this is what I teach:
Revelation 12:17 keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Revelation 14:12 keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Matthew 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

If you choose to do one and not the other that is up to you. If you want to find doctrines that lead you not to keep the law of God that is your choice

WHen you see the word " judgment" What comes to mind?

"So christians do BOTH keep the Law, AND have faith in Jesus" francis

And have any succeeded? What if you failed to keep the law but still believe in Christ, do you lose your salvation? If you do "lose your salvation" (not that the elect will lose their salvation anyways), that would then make Christ's death on the cross a failure because He couldn't save the sinner from his sin, as the Father had promised.

You know, such a doctrine is deserving of eternal damnation that Christ's death only made the sinner savable and then it depended on him keeping the law or he'll lose his salvation.
---christan on 10/13/12


---francis on 10/13/12 "So christians do BOTH
keep the Law, AND have faith in Jesus"

Ga 2:15 We, who by nature are Jews, and not sinners out of the nations,

Your citation of Galatians 2:16-17 is misapplied. I refer you to the verse previous to what you use to support your position.

Paul is speaking of the Jew, to the Jews in the ecclesia. It is not directed to us, the nations.

Please attend to the word of God faithfully. This will aid all to discern your spirit. Some already have.

I pray God open your heart and eyes to be able to correctly divide the word of truth.

1 John 3:4 sin is the transgression of the law.

Galatians 2:17 BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found transgressing the law, is therefore Christ the minister of transgression of the law? God forbid.

Revelation 12:17 the remnant... which keep the commandments of God, AND have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Revelation 14:12 saints: they that keep the commandments of God, AND the faith of Jesus.

So christians do BOTH
keep the Law, AND have faith in Jesus
---francis on 10/13/12


Paul was the Apostle God commissioned to reach the nations. The Twelve failed to do this, and Scripture explains why this is so.

Those who believe and teach judgment of any adverse kind towards the Body cannot find it except by appealing to the other Hebrew writers, thereby failing to correctly cut the word of truth.

Paul alone has the truth for today. Refusing his gospel is a one-way ticket to darkness and confusion.
---Phil on 10/13/12


francis, you contradict the Word. There is no condemnation to those in Christ. You gave (1 Peter 4:17),
"For the time has come for judgment to being at the house of God, and if it beings with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?"
The passage is not speaking for condemnation of believers, but the purging, chastening, and purifying of the Church by the loving hand of God. It's far better and more important to kingdom work to endure suffering as the Lord purges and strengthens the Church, than to endure the eternal suffering of the unbeliever in the lake of fire. And if God so strongly and painfully judges His Church which He loves, what will be His fury on the ungodly?
---Mark_V. on 10/13/12


---Mark_V. on 10/12/12
1 Peter 4:17 For the time [is come] that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if [it] first [begin] at us, what shall the end [be] of them that obey not the gospel of God?

Daniel 7:22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High, and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

Some translaton say judgment was given in favour of the saints

Bottom line judgment does not mena punishment. It can mean decision

Francis, God's Word,

"There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit" (Romans 8:1).

And,

"For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death" why?

"For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit."

Your walking according to the flesh, trying to keep the Law.

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that every one may receive the things done in [his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad

Revelation 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly, and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

Thus the judgment must takle place
1, After we die, because as long as anyone is alivem, they can make a choice for or against Jesus. But once we die or choice is final
2: He is comingback withis reward, which means that the reward/ judgment is made BEFORE he comes back

There is no judgment for the believer after death. They have passed from death to life in Him. There is no need of "cleansing" since the righteousness of God Himself has already justified the elect.

We shall stand before Him at the Dais of Christ to receive, not be judged. G2865 komizo

By citing Hebrew letters, and applying them to the body of Christ, a great dishonor and mischief takes place.

One cannot be a new creation in Christ, and yet suffer any kind of judgment. It is God Who justifies the ungodly.

francis, you say,

1. Jesus is our advocate in heaven: "yes, Jesus is in heaven, He speaks on our behalf who are still here on earth."
2. Our judgment takes place after we die, "Wrong, If you are saved, there is no judgment, only rewards. If you are not saved, you are condemned already. You will be at the "Great White Throne of Judgment" for sentencing." (John 3:18) "He who believes in Him is not condemned, but he who does not believe is condemned already,..."
3. The judgment is the same as the purging or cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary,
"Wrong, the Judgment is for sentencing those who are condemned already." The heavenly sanctuary is pure.

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Hebrews 9:23 It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.

1: Jesus is our advocate in heaven
2: Our judgment takes place after we die
3: The judgment is the same as the purging or cleansing of the heavenly samctuary
4: because it takes place before Jesus comes it can be called PREADVENT
5: this judgment is investigative rather than punitive

The people are not cleanse in the heavenly sactuary, they cannot enter it. Only the High Priest. The blood represented on the altar, would clean the sins of the people outside the tabernacle. Nothing unclean enters the tabernacle. And the earthly tabernacle was build by men, using the instructions of God. The heavenly tabernacle is pure, it belongs to God.

trey, The verses that come before Hebrews 9:23 talk about the use of blood in the old covenant, by the priest and by Moses. By the priest to obtain redeemption, and to cleanse the people from thier sins. Verses 9-12 stated that the use of animal blood did not bring redeemption, it was christ blood who did that. the earthly sanctuary was only a pattern of what was to happen in the heavenly.

Verse19-22 says that allmost all things are purged ( cleansed) with blood. Speaking about Moses use of blood. Verse 23 which is a summary of 1-22 says that the heavenly things also had to be purged ( leansed) with blood . But with Christ blood.

francis, the passage in (Heb. 9:23) does not say things were impure in heaven. "the copies of the things in Heaven" they were only copies of the real thing. The copies (v.8:5) are the earthly tabernacles and its vessels were only symbolic replicas of the true heavenly tabernacle (v.8:2) and were also made unclean by the transgressions of the people (Lev. 16:16).

how can the heavenly tabernacle be dirty? It's at the Throne of God. Also, nothing in the earthly tabernacle was unholy. Did you not read that the high priest would go inside and if he was unclean, he died instantly, and someone would have to drag him out.

The real High Priest who offered the real sacrifice for sin serves in the real tabernacle. He is the complete fulfillment of the shadowy copies in the Levitical system. "Copies" check (v.8:5) means earthly tabernacle and it's vessels were only symbolic replicas of the true heavenly tabernacle (v.8:2), and were also made unclean by the transgressions of the people (Lev. 16:16).

The SDA doctrine that Jesus cleansed the heavenly sanctuary is in line with Hebrews, chapters 8,9 and 10, which stated that Jesus AFTER his death, and by his blood would cleanse the heavenly sanctuary. Chapter 9 verse 27 lets us know that this cleansing is also the judgment. The same judgment mentioned in Daniel 7:10 before Jesus returns ( PRE-ADVENT JUDGMENT)

What Maccebees did was not cleansing it was cleaning the physical building. After the death of Solomon, and after the Babylonian captivity, there were MANY cleaning, and many cleansing.
What makes that of Maccabees any different? ( THIS IS A TRICK QUESTION, be very careful how you answer)
---francis on 10/7/12


Adventists believe that Daniel 8:14 speaks of the heavenly sanctuary however, it is clear that it is the earthly sanctuary that is in view.

The 2300 daily sacrifices corresponds to the time when Antiochus Epihances stopped the temple sacrifices. They were restored some 3years later by the Maccabeans.

If the Adventist interpretation really had an merit (and it doesn't), then we would expect other Biblical scholars to believe in it, but no one does.

This sanctuary theory was invented by a follower of Miller named O.R. L. Crosier, who later rejected because it lacked support from scripture.

Contrary to what most christians believe, identifying false prophets is indeed very difficult especially during these end times.

False prophets and false teachers come from within the church. They put on a false front and, like satan himself, mix truth with error which is often very difficult to detect especially with today's christians who live their lives on the surface of their being. Identifying false prophets and false teachers require two things: watchfullness and a strong foundation in the bible (without the use of concordances, christians dictionaries, and the plethora of different opinions by authors who claim they know the truth).

Leviticus 16:30 For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the LORD.

Christ in the heavenly sanctuary as High priest does the same thing that the earthly priest did for us.

Acts 3:19

Hebrews 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood, and without shedding of blood is no remission.

Hebrews 9:23 It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these

It is the record of our sin, in the heavenly books that are cleansed.

Since nothing defiled can enter heaven, how did the heavenly sanctuary get dirty that it needed cleansing?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

I do not expect to convince you of anything

I have showed you the TEN COMMANDMENTS and you reject the ten and choose nine

I have showed you from scripture that the sabbath is called THE SABBATH OF THE LORD and you reject that and call it Jewish Sabbath

I have showed you from scripture that the sabbath is about God creating in six days and resting the 7th, you reject that also

I do not expect to convince you that Jesus is our high priest serving in the heavenly sanctuary

John 3:12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you [of] heavenly things?

What is the Sanctuary?
Hebrews 8:2 the sanctuary, the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, not man.

How does Jesus Cleanse this sanctuary?
Hebrews 9:12 by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place,...It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified ...as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

When will Christ cleanse the heavenly sanctuary?
Daniel 8:14 Unto two thousand and three hundred days, then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.

How do we get that this date is 1844?
Daniel 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people ( that time started 457 BC. 457 to 1884 is 2300 days)
---francis on 10/6/12


Sorry Francis but you really need to get that 1844 thing into this issue if you want to be convincing.

What we see in Scripture is very plain -

Hebrews 3:12 But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God,...

Nowhere in scripture does it say that Jesus ministered in the outer court of the heavenly sanctuary for 1800 years and then went into the holy of Holies.

As noted the inventor of the SDA sanctuary doctrine O.R.L. Crosier later rejected it because it lacked sufficient scripture backing.

Try defending the SDA Investigative Judgment theory.
---elee7537 on 10/5/12

Daniel 7:10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.

Called " investigative judgement" because it occurs out of books.
Investigative Judgment, Trinity, Rapture, Bible, sacraments and terms not found in the bible.

Jesus does what the priest and high priest did:
1: Intersession: Leviticus 23:19 <-> Hebrews 7:25
2: Cleansing the sanctuary: Leviticus 16:30<-> Hebrews 9:23-26
3: Death occurs in the outer court: Hebrews 13:12

The SDA Investigative Judgment theory was first advanced by O.R.L. Crosier while walkiing thru a corn field after the predictionn of 1844 failed. This theory received the annointing from a vision induced by Ellen White. However, Crosier later rejected the theory stating that it was not valid from the scripture. Even William Miller who started all these problems, rejected the theory.

Fortunately many Adventists today do not believe in this theory.

i agree with francis. every sda teaching is in scriptur, but then again so are the words: satan, serves, the lord. put them together in your own fashion and the bible says that the lord serves satan.

This is Paul's exhortation to us.

1C 4:15 For if you should be having ten thousand escorts in Christ, nevertheless not many fathers, for in Christ Jesus, through the evangel, I beget you. I am entreating you, then, become imitators of me.

1C 11:1 Become imitators of me, according as I also am of Christ.

Phl 3:17 Become imitators together of me, brethren, and be noting those who are walking thus, according as you have us for a model.

1Th 1:6 And you became imitators of us and of the Lord.

The Circumcision writers are not our apostles. Only Paul was commissioned to us, the Gentiles.

// I know you are the type of person who ".. could kick the daylights out of you and not violate any of the 10 commandments."

Sorry Jerry but even a mentally challenged person could see that the 10 commandments does not command us to love our neighbor.

Even Jesus Himself did not quote from any of the 10 commandments when He answered that the chief commandment in the law was to love God and ones neighbor.Matthew 22:36f

Any denomination whose focus in on the teaching of their founder instead of on Christ, is likely to be a cult an promotes false teachings.

I think that our first indication that someone is a false teacher is from the indewlling Holy Spirit who seems to point out that the teaching is contrary to what we have read in the Bible. Certain thoughts enter our minds that gives us a feeling that something is wrong. If we act on it, then what is wrong often comes in focus.

It is ver easy to identify false teachers:

2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people,...even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

2 Peter 2:19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption:

2 Peter 2:21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known [it], to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

1: They Deny Jesus as messiah and as creator
2: The teach against the Law and Commandments

Isaiah 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Unless one is not born of the Spirit of God, there's no ways he can tell the difference between the Truth and the lies of the devil and identifying the false teacher.

Jesus declared, "Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, HE WILL GUIDE YOU INTO ALL TRUTH: for He shall not speak of Himself, but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew you things to come.

He shall glorify me: for He shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you."
John 16:13,14. This is a promise from Jesus that can never be broken nor will a Christian receive only half-truths but "ALL TRUTH."

2Ti 1:13 Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

A pattern of sound words...

The apostasy of Christendom is marked by its use of unsound, unscriptural, and exra-biblical terms.

Whoever teaches the word without retaining the words that God used, and substitutes man-made phraseologies instead of what God has said, is most likely teaching falsehoods.

God has been very clear to explain all that we need to know. His words to us were completed by Paul the Apostle Col 1:25.

The departure of todays teachers and preachers from the Gospel that Paul gave us is the first sign of apostasy and error.
---Phil on 10/4/12


The proof that Christendom is filled with false teachers is the multitude of sects and divisions that have arisen.

There would not be these divisions if believers followed the doctines of Paul our Apostle, and kept the Circumcision writers in their proper place.

Paul alone has the truth for today. He alone received the latest revelations directly from the Lord to give to the nations.

The failure to recognize this is the reason why false teachers are able to survive and deceive.

If believers followed Paul's teachings alone, no sects would exist.
