Rodforhim,
You argue and then you say, "it could be" because you have no clue. Israel is lost right now. They are Jewish.
---Luke on 9/30/14

Only a brave or foolish man....would argue with GOD's prophets.

Hos_2:19 I will betroth thee unto me for ever, yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness, and in mercies.
Hos 2:16 And it shall be at that day, saith the LORD, that thou shalt call me Ishi, and shalt call me no more Baali.
Hos 2:23 I will sow her unto me in the earth, and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy, and I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people they shall say, Thou art my God.
---Trav on 9/30/14


//This could be what is happening in the Promised Land today.//

Rodforhim,
You argue and then you say, "it could be" because you have no clue. Israel is lost right now. They are Jewish. They are not Christian. No one enters heaven without Christ. No one, for there is only one way, and that is through Christ, and the Jew's hate Christ, because they do not love Him.
Jesus said to them,
"If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God, nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. Why do you not understand My speech? because you are not able to listen to My word. "You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do." (John 8:42-44).
---Luke on 9/30/14


Trav,You can put down the North or the South, or Judah, but if they are not born of the Spirit, to this day, they are enemies of Christ.
---Luke on 9/28/14

GOD through you, makes an opportunity to post for Lost Sheep Israel, in and by the spite of yourself.
Scriptural points all along are....that a redeemed, Lost Sheep Israel people honoring Christ, that you are still unaware of. What you've lost, cannot see and care not for, GOD has found and does.
Isa 54:7 For a small moment have I forsaken thee, but with great mercies will I gather thee.
Isa 51:1 Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the LORD: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged.
---Trav on 9/29/14


//Do you have any evidence He wore tzit-tzit (to use the usual transliteration)?//

Matthew 9:20, "fringe," kraspedon: the commentaries I looked at seem to agree that this is the "tzit-tzit."

Net Bible definition:
The edge of his cloak refers to the kraspedon, the blue tassel on the garment that symbolized a Jewish mans obedience to the law.
---Rod4Him on 9/29/14


Trav,
They did not meet the spiritual condition in 1948.
---Luke on 9/28/14

Representing Judah, they wouldn't. Calling oneself Judah or even Christian does not make one Judah or Christian.
Doc/attitude makes possible what you say is impossible.
Jer 30:13 There is none to plead thy cause, that thou mayest be bound up: thou hast no healing medicines.
Jer 30:17 For I will restore health unto thee, I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD, because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.
Jer 31:10 Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, declare it in the isles afar off, say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.
---Trav on 9/29/14




\\He did wear zit-zits and participated in many of the Jewish customs.

Do you have any evidence He wore tzit-tzit (to use the usual transliteration)?

BCV, please.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

//But not as Judaism is practiced today.//

Defining who is Jewish today is problematic. However, I see a difference between Rabbinic Judaism and being Jewish.

True, Jesus did not practice current Judaism because that would be anachronistic, he couldn't because it didn't exist then. I do agree that He did not practice much of the Rabbinic teachings of His time. However, He did wear zit-zits and participated in many of the Jewish customs.

Shalom
---Rod4Him on 9/28/14


\\Jesus was a Jew, born of a Jew, and died as a Jew.

//Anyone who is a Jew is an enemy of Christ. If they were saved, they would not be called Jews, they would be called Christians.//

That's like saying one can not be an American and be a Christian. They would be called Messiantic Jews. Where does this anti semitic attitude come from? Jesus was a Jew, born of a Jew, and died as a Jew.
---Rod4Him on 9/28/14


//Once again, this condition was not met by the Zionist movement in 1948. They did not meet the spiritual condition in 1948.//

True, however, "Thus says the Lord GOD, 'It is not for your sake, O house of Israel, that I am about to act, but for My holy name,...For I will take you from the nations, gather you from all the lands and bring you into your own land." From Ezekiel 36.

This could be what is happening in the Promised Land today.
---Rod4Him on 9/28/14




//Rom_11:26 so all Israel shall be saved: ..
Jer_31:1...God of all the families of Israel, they shall be my people.//

Trav, did you not read that not all Israel is Israel? God told Israel,"If" you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations, "but if" you return to Me..yet I will gather them" (Neh. 1:8,9). Israel has not been faithful, she hasn't repented. These Scripture are plain. Israel must first repent, then God will gather her. Once again, this condition was not met by the Zionist movement in 1948. They did not meet the spiritual condition in 1948.
---Luke on 9/28/14


//Most of Israel is Jewish, enemies of Christ.
---Luke on 9/27/14//

Trav,
Anyone who is a Jew is an enemy of Christ. If they were saved, they would not be called Jews, they would be called Christians. Believing Jews are Christians. We are all One body in Christ. You can put down the North or the South, or Judah, but if they are not born of the Spirit, to this day, they are enemies of Christ.
---Luke on 9/28/14


Most of Israel is Jewish, enemies of Christ.
---Luke on 9/27/14

//Even in New Covenant wording.
Nth House of Ten are the Lost Sheep. Judah/Benjamin were never lost physically.// Trav, the nation as a whole is lost. Whether the North House or any other house.

//The Sheep you are unaware of.... were found or we wouldn't have Christianity. In any form today.
Luk_1:68 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for he hath visited and redeemed his people,//

Of course the Lord redeems His people. Those are individuals who become His children, those He draws to Himself. Those are His people, the elect of God. That is why many individuals in the Old Testament were saved, but not the whole nation. Most of Israel is Jewish, enemies of Christ.
---Luke on 9/27/14


But nowhere does it say they were saved. In Matt. 15:24, He was sent to the lost sheep of ... Israel to this day is still Jewish, and lost.
---Luke on 9/26/14

U R right in part, Judah has not accepted as a whole.
You, been taught as I was or "assumed"...that Judah equals all Israel. Even though the many times pointed too scripturally that the Nth house of Ten and the Sth House of Judah are separated. Even in New Covenant wording.
Nth House of Ten are the Lost Sheep. Judah/Benjamin were never lost physically.

The Sheep you are unaware of.... were found or we wouldn't have Christianity. In any form today.
Luk_1:68 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for he hath visited and redeemed his people,
---Trav on 9/26/14


//You state then, Christ failed, Matt 10:6/15:24 Apostles failed, //

Trav,
Jesus did sent the Apostles only to the Jews the first time He sent them. They did a lot of miracles. But nowhere does it say they were saved. In fact in (v. 14) they are told,
"And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet." They did that a lot. Israel remained lost. In Matt. 15:24, it does say He was sent to the lost sheep of Israel. And guess what happen? They whipped Him, humiliated Him, dragged Him, put nails on Him, put Him to the cross, and even stuck a speer in Him. Now were those people saved? No way. Israel to this day is still Jewish, and lost.
---Luke on 9/26/14

Trav,
God has to turn your light on so you can understand Israel is lost.
---Luke on 9/24/14

You state then, Christ failed, Matt 10:6/15:24 Apostles failed, and prophets were wrong. ....your statement in print no less...without you realizing or researching.
Any prophet does not say what you need him to, so you avoid, as you must. Very bad choice.
GOD knows exactly where Israel is....And....Judah.

//Yes, they are Lost....to you. You can't find them. Not supposed to. You wouldn't if you could... It is not possible for me to turn a light on for you either.
GOD only. Here is why.//

Trav,
To me the nation is Jewish not Christian. It's impossible for you to turn a light on, God has to turn your light on so you can understand Israel is lost.
"What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness of faith, but Israel, pursing the law or righteousness, has not attained to the law of righteousness." Why? Because they did not seek it by faith, but as it were, by works of the law, For they stumble at that stumbling stone"

Trav, The New Covenant has come, and the nation of Israel is still lost.

Mat 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

//Jer 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, "and" with the house of Judah:

Trav, The New Covenant has come, and the nation of Israel is still lost. Of course Jacob who was name Israel, is saved already. I believe you still don't get it. Only those who have faith in Christ and His works are saved. Many Israelites today are coming to Christ through missionaries.
God thundered on Mount Sinai that "if the Israelites obeyed His voice, "then" they would be "a special treasure" .. a kingdom of priest and a holy nation" (Ex 19:5-6). The word is "if"

The Bible was written by man inspired by the Spirit. The Bible is understood only by believers in Christ who are born of the Spirit, only they can understand the Bible.
You really believe salvation is only for Israel, but you are wrong. Israel is still lost. And while lost, they will never understand the Word of God, if they did, they would be saved. They need a spiritual awakening.

I do not know where you get the idea that the Bible was written by Israel. Israel is a nation, the nation does not write Scripture. If you are saying Jacob wrote the Bible you are also wrong.
I do not know where you get the idea that the Bible was written for Israel, the Bible was written for believers no matter where they come from.

Luke: "believers who attend the Church..."

Believers ARE the church, not a building or denomination.

Luke: "...are there to be disciple by the pastors or preachers."

The members of these denominational churches are hearers of the Word only.


Peter: "Would your 'non-denominational' church have a denominational pastor preach there?"

No. Even non-denomiantional churches are denominational in nature and are non-profit corporations controlled by man-made laws. We don't have a denominational or a non-denomiantional church. It's just a group of christians meeting daily.

What store items can your captive customer parishioners take to heaven with them? Can they purchase with $$ an item that will save them? Christ can't be purchased, his death shouldn't be sold is point. Don't get mad. Just being Frank as Cluny is.
Does your church not make enough in donations...to donate to needy of giftshop items? What items are the hot sellers?

Trav,
believers who attend the Church are there to be disciple by the pastors or preachers. So that they can go out into the world and become messengers of Christ just as He commanded us all to be. But those in church are being trained just as Jesus trained the disciples so that they would be trained and go out into all the world, which was His last commandment to the disciples who were to now become Apostles.

//My observation is why is a preacher needed in a cube full of Christians. Christ said those who are well do not need a doctor.//

Your observation was negative. Pastors and preachers teach during the service. They teach believers. The Bible is for believers. The Church is made up of individual believers. They make up the Church.
Individual believers are commanded to preach the gospel outside the Church. That should be the goal of every Christian. The ones they teach to are sick and need to be heal, spiritually.

My observation is why is a preacher needed in a cube full of Christians. Christ said those who are well do not need a doctor. Trend is not to learn scripture but to entertain with personal stories and jokes.

The sick,lame,blind & deaf mute,widows and orphans are outside the box. Make the so called preachers get out of the box!

\\How many denominational christians repeat certain prayers during the weekly service?\\

And what's the matter with that?

There were fixed prayers in the Synagogue and Temple services. Jesus not only did not condemn this practice, but took leading roles in these devotions.

Or have you not learned this in the worldly denominational Church of Steveng?

Glory to jesus Christ!

"What promises can we cling to now there is an epidemic looming?"
"All the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us." Cling to these, "[Jesus] Himself bore our sicknesses, and carried our diseases, He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us, for it is written, Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree" Jesus took a physical beating for man's physical healing.

Steven,
You are using your finite mind to tell everyone those in denominations are not saved. First of all you are not God. You don't know who is saved. In fact you don't know if you are saved either. You might think you are, but your fruits do not show that. So stop judging others, you do not know a persons heart, you do not know which people God is saving. In fact many from the Jehovah Witnesses will be saved when God reveals the truth to them, many Muslims will also be saved the same way. Catholics including. you have no right to say who is a believer and who is not. You think those who hang around with you are saved, but you don't even know that.
---Luke on 9/8/14


Luke: "But in every denomination believers are found."

How many denominational christian that do not adhere to the rituals, traditions, ways of living and the doctrines of that denomination. How many in your denominational church would have a preacher from another denomination preside over your sunday morning services? (in other words, would a protestant church invite a catholic priest to preside over them?) How many denominational christians repeat certain prayers during the weekly service?

Steven,
there is no unity even in your church. But in every denomination believers are found. When you claim that Satan started the denominations, you are claiming you know Satan and you saw him starting the church of Christ. Because every denomination has believers who are the true Church of Christ. Believers are the true church of Christ and they are everywhere. Not just at your church. You are not God so you don't know who the believers are, only God knows His true Church.
---Luke on 9/7/14


Luke: "You are one to talk, when you always attack the church of Christ."

I have never attacked the true church of Christ for the true church ARE the christians - not a building or a denomination where counterfeit christians preside. There is unity among the true church of Christ, Christ being the cornerstone. There is no unity among denominational churches, each having their own rituals, traditions, ways of living and interpretations of the bible. Is Christ divided? This is the great delusion of the end days - christians thinking they are christians, but are not because of the teachings of the denominational churches. A newly born christians would be confused about what denominational church to join.
---Steveng on 9/6/14


\\Oh,and Cluny, if you know the bible as you claim you do, not every christian has the same spirit. Some are teachers, some are prophets, some are preachers, some are miracle workers. 1 Corinthians 12:28, Ephesians 4:11\\

Wrong again, as in most of what you say, Steveng.

These ARE gifts of the SAME Holy Spirit. The passages say as much.

Where did you get the idea these were different "spirits"? BCV, please. Or is this a teaching of the worldly denominational church of Steveng?

Try again.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 9/5/14


Steven,
You are one to talk, when you always attack the church of Christ. You seem to have a hate for all of them, no matter what denomination it is. Only your church at your house is the true church.
I have also responded to Bryan, he has been teaching the wrong gospel by misquoting many passages. I respond to where he is wrong.
Almost everyone who answers questions now, attack the person not the message they are giving. When you attack the church, you are attacking every single believer. As if you are the only genuine believer in this world. Instead of attacking the church, you should respond only to the answers people give. We are to edify each other, not attack each other.

\\You attack people thinking you are doing God's service. You are not. If Jesus were on these blogs, you would also attack him because he doesn't conform to your man-made doctrines.\\

Of course, you NEVER do that, do you Steveng?

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 9/4/14


Steveng on 9/4/14: 'Actually, you are not attacking the person, but you are attacking Jesus - and even mocking him.'

Be careful, Steven. You also have a tendency to attack a person sometimes, as you occasionally do with Cluny as well.

So it is good for you, as for all of us, to turn that accusation on yourself, as I should on myself.

Blessings to you and Cluny
---Peter on 9/4/14


Cluny: "BTW, I'm not a child. I'm over 60."

If you are over sixty, you should act your age, not as an six year old.

You attack people thinking you are doing God's service. You are not. If Jesus were on these blogs, you would also attack him because he doesn't conform to your man-made doctrines.

You attack people by saying "Like the Gospel According to [place a name of the person here] or "Like the denominational church of [place a person's name here]."

Actually, you are not attacking the person, but you are attacking Jesus - and even mocking him.

Darlene may have another gift that God gave her that you do not know about. And even if Darlene was a healer, God didn't send her anywhere, but where she is now. Remember "Acres of Diamonds"?

You are not God by telling them what they should and should not do.

And one last thing, I've noticed that your replies to many of these posts are becoming more childish. I believe that you should take a year sabbatical and get back to the basics of the bible.

\\The word is given and you say no it is not\\

Right, Bryan.

You don't give the Word of God.

I've caught you misquoting the Biblee too many times to believe a word you say, including "a', "an", and "the".

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 9/4/14


Cluny you have so many religion hoops to jump through. To get God to like you, it like watching a Circus act. The word is given and you say no it is not. If Jesus is not given to us by God then what has been given to us by God. Another religion? Were men have rule over how and what you believe.
---Bryan on 9/4/14


Dear Joy,
we can cling to the promise that it will get worse before the Second Coming of Christ. What we are seeing right now is not the worse. There will be a lot of killings whether from wars or from evil people killing others. That is not even counting the wrath of God that will come for many before the Second Coming. The earth itself will go through many changes. Agape

So cluny still trying to push your religion of a powerless word of God. Why do you even believe accord to your belief system you belittling people caurse you thinking you are so much better than them. You need to hang up your phone and let Jesus call you not some man made up religion
---Bryan on 9/2/14


Cluny with all respect,you seem to delight in trying to start something negative with me but I won't play that game. I've always prayed for my Mama,she's God's gift to me. I will say there's no cure for old age,the ailments are usually from wear and tear on the body such as bone on bone in the knees,even the Bible tells us when we are young we go where we please but when old someone else would carry us where we go. Our whole family believes in the loving healing power of God and we have received hundreds of answered prayers for many different things including healing. God says I am the God who heals you,I am your healer. I believe Him,we only receive what we believe. We don't serve a watered down God with no power. God Bless

Cluny:

You asked: Darlene, have you offered your services to go to west Africa and heal people of Ebola?

Just because somebody has the ability to do something, it doesn't necessarily follow that they also have the calling to do it. Jesus had the ability to heal, and could well have healed all the lepers in Palestine if had wanted to do so, but he didn't - he was called to do other things.
---StrongAxe on 9/2/14


All the promises of the bible . gift of healing was never a promise not the charismatic faith healing interpretation. Sorry Darline. Not a biblical promise or power Christians have from the Holy Spirit.Not at all how that vs should be interpreted

Darlene, YOU were the one to pop off about claiming the promise to lay hand on the sick to heal them.

Have you tried this with your mother?

Apparently the Holy Spirit has not given you the gift of reading and writing other languages, especially Biblical ones.

How about for healing, Darlene?

BTW, I'm not a child. I'm over 60.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 9/1/14


Amen Darlene! What's key is that whatever we do, we should do it by the unction, leading & enabling of God, the Holy Spirit.
---Leon on 9/1/14


Cluny as usual you are very quick to pop off about what I say,you are so out of line. I am 75 years old trying to see that my 96 year old Mother who is in a Nursing Home has all her needs met plus I am an only child and must tend to all her business. If I have any ministry to others its to love them and pray for them when they have needs of any kind. Charity does begin at home and anyone who neglects there own family to run off across the world needs a reality check. A woman told her Pastor I've been called to go minister to people. The Pastor answered her back you sure have your ten children. We're not always called out but called in to care for our own. God Bless
