"Lets say, we're in agreement with your understandings. Why wasn't Paul this smart that he didn't know when the old books/scrolls, were written.
He was a Pharisee, from a family of Pharisees. He seems to have believed the old…"
"Hello Joy A,
I had to look up the word soteriology to know something of what you were asking, and have read all the replies, to clarify. If I've got it right, that means is there eternal life after AD 70? It certainly stretches the thought…"
"Hello Euripides, I think you are well named after the exceptional writer.
Almost thou has persuaded me. (s)
I am grateful for your quick defining of a Preterist. I really have not known just what that label meant. I also don't know the…"
"Hello Euripides, and anyone else,
Your types are very interesting to me as I see the woman as the type for God's Kingdom, and it fits very well. These are my understandings, and may differ from others, and I am still looking at all of this…"
I am relieved to hear that it was not believed to be prior, since Israel, both kingdoms, were evil more than half the time of their combined kingdoms, then they were loyal to God.
I may never understand the thousand years, but that's…"
"Hi Patricia, thank you for your clear reply,
Here is what I see from study. Rev 12:13 is the same casting out that Jesus saw in Luke 10:18, both violent as lightning. You will notice that 'he was cast” in Rev. has a different Greek than…"
Your argument is about the same as mine. I have never believed Satan is just an evil thought of man. Although man can certainly have evil thoughts or actions completely from his carnal flesh, without assistance from the…"
"Hello Patricia, very nice to meet you.
Thank you for the welcome note. I hope joy is added here. If we can all learn a clearer understanding of God's word, by giving and receiving from each other, then I think joy will abound. I actually get…"
The whore riding on the beast wore purple and scarlet. As you mentioned the connection, the entire tabernacle that God gave instructions to Moses, was made in Blue, Purple and Scarlet. Tapestries the vial, curtains, all of…"
"Hello Doug, this should be a good discussion. . of interest to many, I'm sure.
First I'd like to say that I call this rich man who was a ruler of the synagogue
a very good Jew, and especially compared to the other leaders that Jesus had…"
First, what is the difference between devils and demons or real demons?
I'm not settled about Satan being eternally dead and for sure not when, if that is true.
What I know for sure, is that he was cast out of heaven, Rev 12 and Jesus…"
"I hope this discussion isn't dead yet, because I have another question. If 'satan' or the devil were defeated at the cross, which even I have put forward, why did Jesus tell His eleven disciples, just before His ascension,…"
"To Stairway. Your name fits this scripture well. Isaiah 28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
If you understand these few scriptures, you will gain a…"
"I have just recently come into an interesting understanding about Satan. In Rev 12, John sees the vision of the woman ready to deliver the child, which the dragon confronts to destroy the child. Failing that, he goes after the child, but she finds…"
