Three Layers Of Heaven
  
"For our citizenship (citizenship denotes where you live, both origination and dwelling) is IN HEAVEN, from whence also we look for the appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who shall change our vile bodies that they may be likened unto His glorious body, by the working whereby He is able to subdue all things unto Himself."

Seeing then that we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses.....
They are there too.


World Wide Famine Coming
  
Those horses are the four aspects of Christ in His life and death...righteous earth walk (white), red (Jesus made sin), black (Jesus identifying with our darkness and weighing good and evil in the balances), and pale (Jesus made the curse). With that in mind, go back and read that passage of Scripture. That book is signified, which simply means that it is written in signs that point to Christ and His work.


What Is The Strong Delusion
  
The son of perdition is explained in John chapter 17 and refers to Judas and the spirit he operated in. Judas means "praise" and Judas betrayed. He was the praise that betrayed Jesus by going out and hanging himself, trying to do in remorse what Jesus would have done for him if he had waited. In other words, Jesus' hanging was Judas' hanging but Judas tried to do it himself.

Moderator - The Son of Perdition wasn't Judas as the Son of Perdition is yet to come. Judas wasn't THE Anti-Christ, but an anti-christ.


Why All This Self Pity
  
Anon, we live in a fallen world still impacted by the fall of Adam. Rapes, beatings, cocaine addictions, uncaring fathers, car accidents, and job losses...if you look at all those things, you will realize that man in his fallenness makes choices that affect others. The good news is that none of those things change who Jesus is and what He has done in redemption. None of those things have the authority to control us unless we give it to them.


When Did Pentecost Begin
  
I believe the Moderator has said all that needs to be said on this one.


World Wide Famine Coming
  
The book of Revelation is the Revelation of Jesus Christ...and that's a good thing, not what we have been taught all our lives. Wheat in the Bible represents the death of Christ (except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die...). Barley (the firstfruits grain) represents the resurrection. Oil represents the anointing of the Holy Spirit and wine the blood of the new covenant. If there is any famine at all, it is a famine of hearing of the Word of God. No famine of the bread though (Amos).


What Is Repentance
  
Dead works, to me, refer to anything we would try to do to win God's love or approval. Since we cannot earn His love, then anything we would do to try would be, in essence, dead because it wouldn't work.


What Is The Strong Delusion
  
Taken in the context of the beginning of chapter 2, the brethren are being warned to not be soon shaken, or troubled that the day of Christ is at hand. The deception (lie) is that the day of Christ will come before the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God and sits in the TEMPLE as God, showing himself that he is God.


Three Layers Of Heaven
  
Heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool; and where is the place of My rest?

There are living creatures, elders, and angels (messengers) around that throne in heaven. There is the Lion of the tribe of Judah and the Lamb lying down together as spoken of in the book of Isaiah seated on that throne. Jesus is not a Lion or a Lamb. He is both. Here's some good news: we are seated together with Him in that place.


Three Layers Of Heaven
  
No, the body is not "in heaven" but who we really are, which is spirit, is. You may not believe that but God said it and He always speaks the truth. Even if you never experience that place of rest while still in your body doesn't change the fact that it is truth.


Three Layers Of Heaven
  
Rebecca, I didn't say it, God did. Eph.2:2,5,6. Don't forget that we aren't body; we are spirit. He that is born of the Spirit IS spirit and He that is joined to the Lord is ONE SPIRIT with Him...and He is in heaven. We have a soul (mind, will, emotions, and thinking faculties) and we live in a body.


Three Layers Of Heaven
  
God doesn't say things to make them true. He says them because they are true. In regards to reading the newspaper and whatnot, you are right. I tend to not let what is spoken from the earth determine my belief system.


Three Layers Of Heaven
  
I didn't expect you to understand that Jerry. Nevertheless, it is true. Eph.2:2,5,6. Don't forget that who we are is spirit. We have a soul and we live in a body but we ARE spirit. He that is born of the Spirit IS spirit. That is why God says that we are seated together with Christ in the heavenly places and why He says our citizenship IS in heaven (not will be).


Are You Saved And Why
  
As Esan said on another blog, "Some will comply and some will contend. Let us all be fully convinced in our own mind." At this point, I take James 1:21-26 to heart and turn away from this idle conversation whose engine is running but is going nowhere.


Are You Saved And Why
  
Since it is obvious that there is no reconciliation of this matter, I am laying it off by faith. It seems all I have done is go in circles, explaining and re-explaining to only come back and have it seem like what I wrote was not read, at least not entirely. I'm done. If I cannot get across what I am saying in the many lengthy posts I have submitted, then there is no value in going one step further.


Three Layers Of Heaven
  
He said that the third heaven has a great population and then asked who lived there. I answered the question. God, elders,living creatures, witnesses, and those seated together with Christ.


Pastor Rod Parsley's Salary
  
One can be just a good person (not born again) and, by a strong will, not do anything evil. Does that make that person God because he/she has never done one evil thing? No. The only thing that could make any man God is to be able to offer up Himself for the sins of the whole world and do what only Jesus could do...rid man of the Adamic nature and regenerate him. No man but God's chosen Son can do that therefore man cannot be God.


Pastor Rod Parsley's Salary
  
"The premise is that our wills are the most powerful thing....seems like we are somehow equal to God,..... and I'm pretty sure Jesus was the only one who could make that claim....."

God has gone against the "human" will of man simply by setting aside a Lamb, offering Him up to be slain, and then raising Him from the dead. His will for man is expressed in His crucified, resurrected, and ascended Son.
