Cluny, Yes, The Bible does seem to be saying that, doesn't it? That we've been in the Last Days since the first Pentecost.

ACTS 2:17 is the beginning of the fulfillment of JOEL 2:28, and will continue until the Second Advent of Yahushua ha Melech.

A day is as a thousand years with GOD, and a thousand years as a day.

P.S. We'll see about Elisabeth Elijah, won't we, mate?

Glory to ha Maschiach!
---Gordon on 7/2/13


lets not forget what the NT is.
It is not intended to be a repeat fo the OT
Ot is not intdnded to tell us all that God wants us to do.

the NT was written to
1: Correct erronious doctrines that had crept into the church
2: Encourage the saints to continue in the faith
3: Help the saints endure persecution
4: bring unity in the body

If something was an issue, example giving money, adultery, circumcision, that issues got attention

Things that were issues on which all the christains agreed and conformed, like the sabbath, and diatary laws, needed not to be brought into focus, since the entire church did it in harmony with the word of God

\\GOD's people prophecy, see Visions and dream Dreams, in the Last Days.
---Gordon on 7/2/13\\

Which excludes you and Elisabeth Elijah.

Of course, Acts 2 means we've been in the Last Days since Pentecost.

I read you post, but could not put it in any context, sorry. I am not sure what you are talking about
---francis on 7/2/13


StrongAxe, DANIEL 12:4-9 says, "...O Daniel, shut up the Words, and seal the Book, even to the Time of the End...for the Words are closed up and sealed till the Time of the End."

GOD sealed up and kept hidden certain Info until the End-Times.

To be unsealed and made known in the the End-Times.

We are in that End-Times.

Also, JOEL 2:28 and ACTS 2:17 tell us that, in the Last Days, GOD shall pour out HIS Spirit upon all flesh (as at Pentecost, ACTS 2:1-4) and, by that, HIS people "...shall PROPHECY...shall see Visions...shall dream Dreams."

GOD seals up Info in DANIEL

GOD unseals that Info in the End-Times

GOD's people prophecy, see Visions and dream Dreams, in the Last Days.

Cluny:

This site seems to automatically convert all colons to periods, and all semicolons to commas (although it doesn't do so in the middle of scripture quotes - maybe only if they are followed by a space).
---StrongAxe on 7/2/13


Cluny, I wish , or . or ' was my only problem.
I had nerve problems in some of my fingers. They would twitch and jump back and forth some times.
I would try to type things like my name and get Elskr or something. After the Lord and I had a good laugh at some of the spelling the twitching stopped. I guess that's good because I don't get upset when someone else misspells my name... even on purpose.
(Man I hope I "spelld" twitch correctly...)
---Elder on 7/2/13


\\t really is "spelled" and not "spelld."\\

Thank you for calling my attention to this.

While we're on the subject, have you ever typed a semicolon and had a mere comma show up on the screen here? I have all the time. I wonder why.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 7/1/13


"First off, the word is spelld "pathEtic." Insults and verbal abuse are much more effective if properly spelled."
Cluny
Hey Bud,.... before you dress 'em down on their spelling be sure you spell, "spelled" correctly. It really is "spelled" and not "spelld."
See how easy it is to misspell or miss a key? Even the great ones do it....lol... keep after 'em....
---Elder on 7/1/13


francis:

Exactly! That is why I never say "this saith the LORD" or put words in God's mouth except if I'm quoting scripture directly (or paraphrasing some because the word limit makes quoting impossible).

On those rare instances when I actually read meanings between the lines, I usually say "this may suggest..." or something else, indicating that it's my own opinion only.

Unfortunately, many on here seem to be able to read God's mind directly, and tell us exactly what he meant, whenever he didn't bother to tell us details.
---StrongAxe on 7/1/13




That is a good question!

Exodus 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

do not appear in the NT. What are your views?

Here is mine: 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.
---francis on 7/1/13


I amnot sure why people, especially christians woudl have a problem with a modern day prophet.

Did God say he was done talking to his people?

Are you trying to tell God that he has said ebough?
---francis on 7/1/13


francis:

You are right, in that the Bible nowhere mentions the Apostles changing the Sabbath to sunday, or calling the first day of the week Sabbath. But it also doesn't make any mention of the New Testament church meeting on the Sabbath either (and I'm not talking about Apostles preaching to Jews in the synagogues on Saturday, because that is something entirely different).

Also, as Cluny points out the Ten Commandments say to observe the Sabbath, but not how. The Law of Moses says how. You frequently distinguish between the two, saying one is mandatory and the other is not. If you insist on the Sabbath parts of the Law of Moses, why not all the other parts?
---StrongAxe on 7/1/13


francis, I always study scripture. you on the other hand need to take things in context. do you actually think God cares what days we worship and talk to Him? it is such a minor issue.time and pecking keys on my laptop is wasting energy talking about something that God don't care about.
---shira4368 on 7/1/13


francis:

On the "End Times Guillotines" blog, you said:

Rev 19:20 ...
Folks, remember that this is a deception to enforce sunday as " the lord's day"


Note that there is absolutely NOTHING anywhere in Revelation that mentions anything about enforcing any day as a day of worship.

By insisting that it DOES say this, you are adding to what Revelation actually says.

Revelation 22:18 speaks DIRECTLY about the dangers if anyone adds words to it.

Reading between the lines can confuse one, but insisting that others do so too can imperil one's very soul!

All scripture is given. the word of God equips us to be furnished to do all good works. Prophecy is no longer needed because He gave is something that replaces it.

The prophets were given to prophecy in part until the perfect (completed word of God) was given. Now that we can see face to face, prophesy isn't necessary.

Today, anyone who claims to be prophesying is actually declaring that he has an equal standing to the written Word of God.

1 Thess 2:13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.
---michael_e on 7/1/13


Cluny and francis, Yes, you're right in this. What I said was incorrect, regarding the Greek language. I put that out wrong. It is true that is that Greek, both ancient and modern, have feminine gender references to objects and people, as well as masculine and neuter ones. That was my mistake there. So, I correct myself, now.

The Greek refers to "Spirit" as a neuter gender:
"Pneuma"
That's ancient Greek for Spirit, Breath or soul.

The translators, in an effort to personalize that Greek Word of "Pneuma" into English, they made it Masculine to coincide with the Genders of the Father and the Son.

---shira4368 on 7/1/13
you need to check you " sola scriptura" more closely

or see what your SB leaders say about the sbabath

The sacred name of the Seventh dayis Sabbath. This fact is too clear to require argument [Exodus 20:10 quoted] on this point the plain teaching of the Word has been admitted in all ages Not once did the disciples apply the Sabbath law to the first day of the week, -- that folly was left for a later age, nor did they pretend that the first day supplanted the seventh. Joseph Hudson Taylor, The Sabbatic Question, p. 14-17, 41.

==A person chosen by God:

1. To know what is coming in the distant future and of thing just about to happen.==

There is no record of either Agabus or the daughters of Philip the Deacon knowing of far-future events, yet the NT calls them both prophets.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

francis, my mind is already made up. you are the one who harps on and on and on about the law and the Sabbath. I think we can go to church everday of the week. you on the other hand cherish your Sabbath.
---shira4368 on 7/1/13


Steveng, you knew if you posted what you said, you would get an answer from me. you say,
"A person chosen by God:"
How can you authenticate who is a prophet? Who told you? and can you give proof from Scripture? All genuine believers are chosen by God, yet no one knows who is the heart of another, yet you claim you know.
then give the requirements,
"1. To know what is coming in the distant future and of thing just about to happen." If not in Scripture, how do you know those things are truth? Did the prophet who couldn't speak tell you? Then:

"2. To edify the church (not the denominational churches, but the christians)." Where is that rule in the Bible? That's your rule.
---Mark_V. on 7/1/13


stevenj, revelation tells us what is going to happen. God allowed john to see it all. he even saw things he could not tell but everything we need to know is in revelation.
---shira4368 on 7/1/13


We must first define a prophet.

A person chosen by God:

1. To know what is coming in the distant future and of thing just about to happen.

2. To edify the church (not the denominational churches, but the christians).

To know the difference between a true prophet and a false prophet one must know the bible thoroughly to be able to test the spirits.

For those of you who believe that prophets do not exist today will be the ones who will celebrate and exchange gifts when the last two prophets are dead in the streets as revealed by John. These prophets will be hated even by christians because they do not conform to worldly denominational church doctrine, including the Orthodox and Catholic church.

You pass yourself off as an educator, are you telling me then that the only place in the bible that tells how to observe the sabbath is the ten commandments?

Since your memory is bad, let me remindyou of my post:

The law of God and the law of the lard are the same if the context is the same
The law of God is NEVER called the law of Moses, while the law of Moses is at times called the law of the lord/ God
Example: Luke 2:24 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.
---Francis on 10/24/11

First off, the word is spelld "pathEtic." Insults and verbal abuse are much more effective if properly spelled.

And if you think so, that means what I said is great and profound wisdom.

\\As if the sabbath instruction is only given in one place in the bible\\

You yourself have said on several occasions that only what's in the Decalogue are the actual commandments of God in the OT. You quote the words "And He spoke no more" to prove your point. Be consistent.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

---shira4368 on 6/29/13
Make up your mind, either go by the bible and keep the sabbath or go by man and keep sunday

James 1:8 A double minded man [is] unstable in all his ways.

The bible contains nothing that enables a follower of Christ to forsake sabbath for sunday

I can respect your sola scriptura definition, but try to practice what you preach

\\Where did God put in the sunday morning services, or the sunday midday service, or any sunday service for that matter?
---francis on 6/29/13\\

The same place He put SATURDAY services in the Decalogue.

In other words, they are not there at all.

And as I've pointed out:

1. The Sabbath Commandment is about rest from labor, and NOT worship.

2. In the Temple and in traditional Synagogues to this day, there are DAILY services morning and evening.

Gordon:

You said: GOD has a Mouth and HE CAN SPEAK through modern Prophets. Not everything He says and does was meant to be Canonized.

We are to test prophpets to see if they are from God or false ones (1 John 4:1). God is not the author of discord (1 Co 14:33), so what one prophet teaches cannot contradict what went before.

The idea that Jehovah is pronounced YAHUVEH and Jesus is pronounced YAHUSHUA (different from how anyone has ever pronounced them) - and that this is IMPORTANT - is "I'm right and everyone before me (including the Bible) is wrong" - which should immediately signal alarm bells.
---StrongAxe on 6/28/13


\\Cluny, It has been changed, according to the Greek language, WHICH DOES NOT HAVE FEMININE PRONOUNS,\\

The holy spirit is not an it

He is always referred to as HE, not she I am 100% sure that the pronoun SHE is in the NT, but when it comes to the holy ghost the pronoun is HE, not it and not she

I do not know of any "IT" that can grieve Ephesians 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God
Isaiah 63:10 they vexed his holy Spirit
---francis on 6/28/13


Francis, The Holy Spirit being Feminine changes nothing about Who the Holy Spirit is, nor what the Holy Spirit does, nor the Character and Traits of the Holy Spirit, nor the Role that the Spirit plays within the GOD-Head and in the lives of men and women.

Know also that many languages have masculine and feminine pronouns, including O.T. Hebrew. Whereas N.T. Greek has only masculine and NEUTER pronouns, no feminine.

The Greek word for Spirit is "Pneuma", and is NEUTER. Which makes the Spirit an "It".

But, the translators, knowing that the Spirit is a Person, gave the Spirit a Masculine pronoun in the English translation to go along with the Masculine genders of the Father and Son.

Cluny, Gnosticism does include "special knowledge" about something, but, it also includes a belief that all material and physical matter is evil and that only the spiritual is good.

Elisabeth Elijah teaches the truth, that GOD created all things, both spiritual and physical, as good.

It was sin that corrupted the physical matter, as well as the spirits of men and of fallen angels.

The revelation of the Holy Spirit as a Feminine Being is just that, a Divine revelation.

Cluny, The Holy Spirit IS Wisdom.

The Holy Spirit is Wisdom personified (for the Holy Spirit is a Person)

The Holy Spirit is Wisdom personified just as The Son of GOD is Truth personified. JOHN 14:6.

The Holy Spirit is of feminine Attributes.

GOD, Who created all the foreign languages, made the Hebrew word for Spirit (Ruach) feminine for a reason.

The Hebrew Language being THE principal language of the peoples from which the Son of GOD was chosen to be Born into.

PROVERBS 1:20-33 attests and shows the Holy Spirit, that Spirit of Wisdom, crying out in the streets, everywhere, to all men to heed Her and turn from their wickedness and foolishness. To come to Her and receive Life.

What would be the difference, assuming thatthey are true prophets of God?
---francis on 6/26/13

As I have said before, in the Bible I see two distint functions of the office of prophet.

The first is to foretell or to inform people of future events yet to happen. Accurately doing this was the OT measure of a real prophet. Unless I have missed something, Jesus and others have outlined time thru the end of this planet as we know it.

The second is to "forth tell" or "thus sayeth the Lord". To proclaim what is the truth of the Lord. This was needed before the cannon of Scripture was formed and before we had the words of Jesus, who is truth.

Cluny, GOD's Words spoken through a modern Prophet is not an attempt to add more Words to the Canon.

Not everything that GOD says and does gets Canonized. See JOHN 21:25!

GOD has included all that HE wanted to in the Canon.

The Prophetic Words that GOD had Daniel seal up until the time of the End are now being unsealed.

GOD can speak through Prophets today whenever He feels like it.

When GOD has some extra things He wants to say today, He can do so, since He's GOD.....

D'ya think??

You mock a Prophet of GOD that you don't even know the truth about.

Instead, you choose to believe the false reports spread about her on the Internet.

Mark Eaton, My whole point for posing the Blog question is for people on both sides of this issue to back-up with Scripture of whether or not GOD has true Prophets in the Church today.

It's really a rhetorical question on my part. I have no doubts of GOD having modern Prophets in the Church today, and I've shown Scriptures to back that up, already.

It's those doubters and mockers on C-Net who have the burden to prove otherwise.
---Gordon on 6/26/13


Catherine, Lol. Yes, mundane lives, indeed, (though, not all). It seems many think that any modern Prophet of GOD has to be a "John the Baptist" living in extreme conditions or is someone who is WELL-KNOWN and received well by all in the Church.

But, how did the religious community really receive GOD's Prophets?

Yahushua says in MATTHEW 23:37a, "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that KILLEST THE PROPHETS, and stonest them which are sent unto thee...!"

Even Stephen was stoned to death because the religious ones hated GOD's words he spoke. ACTS 7:59

So it is today. When GOD sends a Prophet to speak HIS Words, the religious community hates those Words, and hates the Prophet sent.

Does GOD still send out modern Prophets today?
Please use Scripture, at some point, to back up your answer.
---Gordon on 6/24/13

I find the blog question humorous.

One of the tenants of Sola Scriptura is that the Bible is the only place for truth and doctrinal teaching, yet those who believe in modern day prophets cannot by their belief in prophets, believe in the truth of Sola Scriptura.

So why ask for Scripture to back up our opinions?

The office of Prophet is not supported by the passages outlining the gifts used for equipping the saints. The gift of prophecy is listed. People who call themselves modern day prophets may have the gift of prophecy but are not like the biblical prophets Samuel or Isaiah.

Karen D: Your comment about Y2K and FALSE PROPHETS is actually a linguistic error - in Christian terms.

Those people did indeed make a serious error, yes

BUT - they never claimed - or I never encountered one who claimed - to have been told by GOD that there was destruction coming to the earth from the Y2K problem.

So under God's terms, they were not Prophets, they were people 'taking a guess at the future' - but not claiming any guidance from God
---Peter9556 on 6/25/13


If a so-called prophet makes one FALSE prophecy, that makes him/her a false prophet. For example, those of us old enough to remember Y2K will tell you that there were lots of false prophets publishing books, selling videos, etc. Yet some of you continue to listen to those same FALSE PROPHETS!! A genuine prophet would ask why!!!!!!

\\For, actually, GOD's modern Prophets ARE Biblical Prophets.\\

So you think the utterances and writings of people like your precious Elisabeth Elijah will be added to the Bible?

Try again.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Sometimes God called prophets to go to Judah, sometimes to Israel, sometimes to Ninevah. For all we know, God may hve a prophet right now in Austrailia, or canada.

the prophetic message may be as simple as yes build a house of worship, or no do not build yet

God is lord
God will use prophets as he sees fits and none can stay his hand

Cluny, And, you are more interested in the greatness of mere men that you insist that a modern prophet cannot be important because they are not as one of the Biblical Prophets?

What difference does it make how great or small the Prophet is?

What difference does it make to GOD whether the Prophet HE sends out is from the Bible Times or of modern times?

It's HIS Words spoken forth through the Prophet that counts!

So, when you say stuff like what you said, you show that you're missing the point altogether.

For, actually, GOD's modern Prophets ARE Biblical Prophets.

They fulfill EPHESIANS 4:11-12

and I CORINTHIANS 12 and 14.

Yes, He does. Only few. There are no Scriptures on the subject that I am aware of. Most come and go. Never does much. According to God they just hang around until He comes and gets them. They live mundane lives.

Any true prophet today will NOT be of the stature of the Biblical prophets.

Any true prophet today will NOT be of the stature of the Biblical prophets.

Agabus and the daughters of Philip the Deacon, all of them prophets, were given messages only for their time and immediate audience, as can be seen in Acts.

This principle applies in 1 Cor 12-14.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Does GOD still send out modern Prophets today?

Please use Scripture, at some point, to back up your answer.

Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets

the flood, the exodus, the captivity, the return from captivity, the first coming of Jesus, the church in the wilderness, the SDA church, every movement of God he has kept his word and sent a prophet

In addition to that we have this sure word that visions will come in the last days

Acts 2:17 your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

If you are on facebook or any other social media, including this site, you will find that there are lots of self-proclaimed prophets. They even use prophet in their names. Prophetess Mary, Prophet Joe, Prophet John. LOL....Getting really silly out there.
