Two Second Comings Of Jesus
Jesus says "immediately after the tribulation of those days" (Matthew 24:29) > He will come "with the great sound of a trumpet" (Matthew 24:31) > angels "will gather together His elect". Paul says "at the last trumpet" (1 Corinthians 15:52). The last trumpet Jesus mentions is "immediately after" the trib.

We resurrected "will shine forth as the sun" (Matthew 13:43), with us He will come down, clean away all evil, and resurrect the earth into our "glorious liberty" (Romans 8:21). Then we the "New Jerusalem" (Revelation 21:2) "prepared as a bride for her husband", come down to stay on the resurrectionally glorified earth.

Personal Involvement
I would say our church has preaching of the real gospel, and we do things to help needy people, not only materially.

But we are not perfect. So, ones of us can be the wrong way . . . not only in beliefs, but mainly wrong in how we relate. When people are trying to lord themselves over me and control me or seduce me, I pray. And I know I need to be corrected, myself. I'm not perfect. So, only our Father can know how I really need correction > Hebrews 12:8-11 to me means we need to seek God's correction.

Trying to get wrong people to give me a real answer is a waste of my time!

Bible Verse To Remarry
Your user name is "Goodluck". God is better than luck. You can submit to Him and discover better than what you are seeking. "He will give you better than what you think you need."

Jesus says, "'Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.'" (Matthew 11:29)

And in case you think you have presented to us an impossible situation, and mean "good luck figuring this out", God is able. What is impossible for us is possible with God > "The things which are impossible with men are possible with God." (in Luke 18:27)

So, God bless you (c:

The Great Falling Away
"faith working through love" (in Galatians 5:6)

"Love never fails." (in 1 Corinthians 13:8)

"Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment, because as He is, so are we in this world." (1 John 4:17)

"But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him." (1 Corinthians 6:17)

So, what faith are you talking about, if it can fail? How do we fail, if we are in faith working through love which cannot fail, and if we are "as He is" "in this world"? If we in His love are "as He is" "in this world" . . . can Jesus fail? If we are "as He is", can we fail?

A Sin To Forgive
Hi, Geraldine (c: God bless you (c: Jesus on the cross prayed, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do." (in Luke 23:34) I would say they did not first apologize to Jesus before He prayed this.

So, what Jesus could mean, I consider, is that if someone repents you forgive in the way of being reconciled with the person. It means you get back to relating right with each other.

But if the person does not repent, you still pray forgiveness to the person so the person can be effected by love and be changed to receive the forgiveness.

In your heart, you do desire for the person to be forgiven, so in your heart you have already forgiven the person (c:

Should We Celebrate Christmas
Hi, Imran (c: God bless you (c: Practically, the December 25 day where I am is during colder weather. And here people help the needy, partly because it is the "Christmas season". So, for this reason celebrating "Christmas" can mean help to people in need . . . so there is not so much "pain, sorrow, hunger and lack of Love."

There will always be evil, but we are wise not to allow the presence of evil to decide how we are and what we do (c:

Jesus left Heaven, itself, to come here and reach us and share with us. We celebrate this, by leaving our own little heavens, in order to reach and help others.

Is Cain The Seed Of Adam
Well, Carol, the Bible clearly does say that Cain was born from Eve.

But 1 John 3:12 says "Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother". So, spiritually Cain was of Satan, even if physically he was of Adam. And it does call Seth "his brother", which could mean physically he was his brother, though clearly he was not spiritually his brother.

Ones can be spiritually of Satan, but still family, by flesh and blood, with Christians.

You might consider 1 Corinthians 7:12-16 > showing me how God's people have more power about children, than Satan's people do.

Will God Forgive Me
It is possible with God. We can't do this on our own. Plus, our Father is about family. He has us helping each other. So, yes He wants people who help you (c:

You can learn from your bad choices and use yourself as an example for others so we also can learn from your mistakes.

But forgiveness includes being in God's love where you have this forgiveness, and He wants you to live His loving forgiveness for others, as you have been forgiven so lovingly! (c:

So, we need You, O LORD our Father. This is not what we do, ourselves.

Definition Of Love
There is always more to learn about love.

The Bible also says, "submitting to one another in the fear of God." (Ephesians 5:21) This shows how love has us relating personally with one another. 1 Corinthians 13 and "Christ died for me" does not bring this out.

Also > "There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love." (1 John 4:18) So, there is God's almighty power in this love, to cast fear out.

And God's ways are "past finding out," we have in Romans 11:33. This can help us realize that the ways of God's love will be "past finding out", in our ways of relating with one another (c:

Worldwide Christian Persecutions
In America, there is "soft" persecution.

Christmas Church Traditions
shoebox, gifts for children of inmates, maybe a vigil service

Sinners All Destroyed
Hi, James L (c: What I have learned is

(1) No scripture says Jesus will receive His church bride before the great tribulation, but we see something about "immediately after", in Matthew 24.

(2) During the tribulation, so many will be killed of evil people, but not all.

(3) The saints will rule with Jesus during the thousand years > Revelation 20:4.

(4) A thousand years will be time enough for the leftover evil people of the tribulation to make enough babies to provide the armies which surround Jerusalem.

Exist Without God
Yes, Scott, but if God knows what will happen, this can mean He is in control of exactly what evil will be allowed to do.

"Of course, you could say that God knows exactly how evil will react when God does what He knows He will do . . . like how in a football game a coach can know the future actions of the other team, if he knows how they will react to his team's moves."

Oh - - I didn't think of this (c:

Church To Protect Children
"A sax crime as opposed to a clarinet or trumpet crime?"


If I played a saxophone, that would be a sax crime (c:

Calling the police after the fact is not really preventing.

One problem is how religious people can't tell the difference between a pastor ministering God's love, and a predator of Satan's evil spirit. In order to ordain deacons, Peter told "the disciples" to select men they knew were "full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom" > Acts 6:1-7. So, even the everyday Christians could be expected to tell the difference between someone qualified and not qualified.

So, if you can't tell the difference, this is not Satan's fault or a predator's fault. !

Why Be Moral
Moral rules can be used as a trap. Cultic Bible claiming groups can come up with things others do not promote, then say we're the only ones who have this and so you have to join us.

But there are Biblical morals which help to keep us from going away from God's love and how He has us relating with people.

By the way, our Father "is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe," we have in 1 Timothy 4:10. So, if we are "imitators of God as dear children" (Ephesians 5:1), we with God will be good to "all men", how He pleases for us to do His loving good to each one.

Is Pope Francis Popular
Hi, Ex Catholic (c: You say Francis seems to be "the first church leader who actually teaches what Christ lived?" Well, the wrong leaders can be the ones who the liberal media gives a lot of publicity, in order to give Christianity a bad name. They "might" not want to call attention to ones who are for real.

"Or they can't find them, because they are busy living in real life with people they are reaching."

By the way, Jesus lived by walking among people in their personal situations. He could be approached by the woman who washed His feet with her tears, though she was a known sinner. He was not afraid of women (c:

Every Person Is Precious
There is one God, who can be angry. And there still is judgment coming. But our Apostle Paul says our Father "is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe." (in 1 Timothy 4:10) "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son" (in John 3:16) > so, He loves "the world" . . . all. And Jesus "Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but for the whole world." (1 John 2:2) But this is good "especially for those who believe." There are ones who refused even Jesus Himself, while He was right there with them. Because "With men this is impossible" (in Matthew 19:26). But God alone is good to will and do with us what is good (Philippians 2:13).

Does God Have Faith
It depends, Trey, on what you mean (c: If you mean saving faith, ones can argue that God does not need to be saved (c: Or they can argue that He is safe, by nature, because of His faith. And on we could go.

If you mean belief in the gospel. Our Father believes the Gospel is true. Does He have faith in Jesus? I would say He fully trusts His Son Jesus. So, if faith means trusting, then yes our Father has faith in Jesus.

Do all men have faith, including all evil and Satanic people? Paul speaks of how we need "faith working through love," in Galatians 5:6. If "all" have this, it isn't working very well for "a number" > Paul says "not all have faith." (in 2 Thessalonians 3:2)
