How To Calculate 666
All I am saying about the Gentile believer, is that for right now, Jesus is the Christ, and they are not in search of a Christ as the Jews are. But, they will be fooled too.
How? For them....And Undeniable truth.

For the reason you mentioned. Since many look to the Jewish nation, when they proclaim their Christ, many gentile believers will believe them. He will fulfill the greatest prophecy of all the prophecies...the Prophecy of Jonah. The beast will appear to be dead, but after 3 days, he will appear to come back to life.

(Revelation 3:13) And I saw that one of his heads was, as it were, wounded to death, and.....his deadly wound was healed. And all the world wondered after the beast.

I agree Kathrine, keeping an eye on the state of Israel is key to the end times. Though all the countries of the world will eventually accept the Anti-Christ as their king/ruler/whatever, the end will not come until the Jews accept him as their Christ.

As I have pointed out in the past, the Gentile believer has already crowned Jesus as their Christ (Matthew 12:21)...and in his name shall the gentiles trust. But since the Jews rejected Jesus as Christ, they are still waiting to crown their Christ. And when they do, when their Christ stands in the Holy Place,( in the place God designated for Jesus to stand), the end will come. (Matthew 24:15)

Many TODAY will fall into that same thing, not rightly dividing the word of truth.---kathr4453

And thats what has created the problem, the division of Truth. The Truth, a title to which many give to whatever doctrine they may have chosen. When God sent us the Truth, through his Son, in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We are only allowed to show people the Truth, but we can not make them believe it. For them to break free of their false doctrines, they must seek the Truth on their own.

When they dont, the Truth you show them, becomes your Truth. And then they see it as their truth against your truth, and not their truth against Gods Truth.

What happens when what God's Holy Spirit tells person A the exact opposite of what He tells person B?---Cluny

That is the very definition of the Anti-Christ. Not only is he opposed to Christ, but he wants us to do the opposite of what Christ commands us to do. Revenge vs Forgiveness, Hate vs Love...etc.

If you are speaking about a difference in doctrine, Satan is right in the middle of our churches trying to mislead us there as well. His works are quite visible, when you look for those teachings which teach the opposite of what Christ taught.

This is one very good reason the Bible teaches us to make our foundation on the Gospel of Christ. For in his gospel, the opposite teachings of the Anti-Christ are easily seen.

I think what is more dangerous is to take scripture out of context to use as an excuse to break the law.

I can see both sides of these Laws. If we dont keep these Laws, it is very damaging culturally and economically. But if we do keep these Laws, how can we say, I Love My Neighbor? I can understand why people are conflicted.

Right now we are like a sinking man, who knowingly goes out in a boat full of holes. If he plugged the holes, first, he could then keep the water from getting into the Boat to begin with.

Building the wall might be a way to plug the holes, but since it had become a political issue, I figure we will all, just sit in the boat, and watch it sink.

Bottom line, we need to listen to Gods Holy Spirit. Unfortunately many are hindered by their doctrines, not knowing how to use this gift.

One thing I learned about Gods Holy Spirit, early on, If you want to learn from men, instead of the Gift God has given you, God will allow you to remain ignorant in these man made doctrines.

The proof?
Only one way to heaven, and we have been given a choice of a thousand paths, through a thousand doctrines. Only one path can be the right path, and you will only find it by listening to Gods Holy Spirit.

What are your thoughts about denominational churches as sanctuary churches to illegal immigrants?

In Nazi Germany it was against the Law to harbor Jews. Many Christians broke this Law. Were they right or wrong in the eyes of God?

(James 2: 15) If a brother or sister be naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled, without giving them those things which are needful to the body, what doth it profit?

So many other verses are necessary in understanding too, like the woman who rides the beast ...etc, we are seeing right now.---kathr4453

Exactly! There are many things written in Revelation We could guess about, and many do. But there are some things the Lord gives us, I believe which are meant to be shared.

We may not always know when we hear the Truth, but we would be wise to keep it in mind should it happen.

How To Calculate 666
The beast is going to pretend to be Christ....and we should know , because we KNOW CHRIST , who any imposter would be. 666 all fall short of God, who is a 777.

I agree, folks need to understand the meaning of the Word, Anti-Christ. I see it to mean the same as Kathrine says,...Imposter.

If Jesus is to be the King of Kings, isnt that the role Satan would be seeking? I just throw this information out, information I know to be true, to etch your memory, so hopefully you can recall it, when needed.

We can argue about may things here on CN, but this information is very important to me, because it could mean Eternal salvation for those who have followed the false doctrines.

If I was to base my choice on personality, I too would have voted for Clinton or Obama. Both seem to be men I could get to like. JW also seems to be a good fella.

Trump, no way, not by the way he portrays himself on social networking...,very immature. But then again, maybe its because politics have exposed the immaturity of many of those in politics, and it is the only way to fight back.

Both sides, make fun of the way a president looks, they attack the children, the wives and their families. I see childish immaturity, dont you?
Maybe he is fighting fire with fire?

No matter what source of News you listen to, the accounts will be based upon a bias. So you are only going hear what they want you to hear.
As we were all taught, Consider the source.

If they like someone, or something, you will hear the positive accounts of a story. If they dont like someone, or something, you Only hear the negative accounts.

If you liked Obama, you only listened to the good. If you hated Obama, you only listened to the bad. If you like Trump, you only listen to the good. If you hate Trump, you only listen to the Bad. The biased reporting makes them polarizing figures. Its not easy, but you must listen to both sides, if you want to form an Honest Opinion.

How To Calculate 666
It is very important to understand 666, because it points to the absolute identity of the one of whom Revelation warns us about. There has never been anyone, throughout time, who fits this description, though some were very close.

Now I dont expect you to believe what I am going to say, but I say it so that it may come to mind, if needed.
As we know, the number 6 is the number of man. Every corresponding 6 represents an authority over man.

A king, Prime Minister, or a president, for example, when calculated, would be a 66. A king of kings, according to this calculation, will be a 666. A single ruler, who will rule over everyone.

How To Get Saved
You believe a confession of sin is not required, nor is there a need to ask God to forgive you of your sin, to be forgiven of sin?---David

David where did I say that?

NO AND NO SCRIPTURE makes such a demand, not even in Israel on the day of atonement. ---kathr4453

Church On Doctrines
(Matthew 27:54) Now when the centurion, and those who were with him watching Jesus, saw the earthquake and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly, this was the Son of God!

What caused these unbelievers, to believe, Jesus was the Son of God?
Sure, those who followed John the Baptist may have believed without miracles, but that was because they were followers of John.

What was the prophecy, which left no doubt, Jesus was the Son of God?
The sign of Jonah.
Was that not a miracle?
And if this miracle was not needed to prove Jesus was The Son of God, why was there need of the prophecy?

How To Get Saved
Now if that conviction leads you to Jesus Christ for the forgivness and remission and washing away of sin ...THAT is salvation, after you believe ( not in your sin) but in the Savior who died for your sin, you are Born Again. ---kathr4453

Just to be clear.
You believe a confession of sin is not required, nor is there a need to ask God to forgive you of your sin, to be forgiven of sin?

How To Get Saved
The moment I believed I was BORN AGAIN of the Spirit..---kathr4453

Thank you for sharing what you believe. Can you share with me your experience after you received the Holy Spirit?

Experience is very influential in formulating a belief. I have mine and you have yours. I am very interested in learning about those experiences which cause folks to believe their doctrine is the one true doctrine.

My experience of receiving the Holy Spirit, was much different from my experience of being Born of God, and the experiences were over 15 years apart. The Holy Spirt brought a conviction of sin, being born of God brought the eviction of Sin.

Church On Doctrines
Does the church have the authority to make binding statements about what is true or false doctrine?

Not without the Power and Authority of God, as they had in the early Church. Because of this power, (Making the blind see, bringing the dead back to life, the anointment of the Holy Spirit) they had proof that God was with them.

For instance, if Jesus had claimed he was the Son of God, but came without miracles, who would have believed he was the one, who he claimed to be? Why should I believe Jesus, when I saw not one of his miracles?

I believe, but it is not because of what the Bible says and it is not because of what men say. I believe, because of the miracle he did in me.

Pentecostal and Apostolic circles who DO claim that they have that power, and some (like Benny Hinn, etc.) have huge ministries built around it.---StrongAxe

Good point.
Not that I dont believe these people (Like Benny Hinn) have the ability to perform what folks perceive as a miracle, its just that their Power does not come from God. Hinn does this wave of his arm and 10 to 100 people fall as if choreographed. I dont believe you can fake that. He fakes the miracles, with his diversion of power he does possess, with signs and wonders like waving his hand.

People forget what Jesus taught in ( Matthew 24:24) For there shall arise false christs and false prophets and shall show great signs and wonders......

How To Get Saved
Also Ephesians is in keeping with the chapter on Cornelius....he received the Holy Spirit BEFORE any water baptism.---kathr4453

Ah..very True!
But is it not also true Cornelius and the Gentiles in (Acts 10:47-48) were then baptized, in keeping with what Peter taught in (Acts 2:38)?

Remember, Peter had been given the Power and the Authority of God. Now I know there are many folks who believe teachers today have this same Power and Authority, when folks supposedly receive this gift in the same manner as Cornelius did.

But if they actually have the same Power and Authority, why cant they bring the dead back to life and heal the sick like Peter did?
