DISPOSING of DEMONS

The "Screwtape Letters" by C.S. Lewis was my earliest teenage introduction to the sinister world of Satan and his henchmen.  All that storytelling skill which C.S. Lewis possessed had me believing this as gospel at that time.  But, with all due respect to the beloved Narnia creator, C.S. Lewis had some screwed up theology with regard to the demonic world.  John Bunyan's "Holy War" was also a great favorite for me back then in the 70's.

Fast forward to the present.  The comments…

Old Law, New Law

The Mosaic Law is a term that has been bandied around quite a bit recently! We realize & recognize, for the most part, that what is meant by this terminology is the 600+ 'laws' ( including the Ten Commandments? ) that were given THROUGH Moses, but should we really use the term 'Mosaic' to describe it? Can we conscionably call it 'The Law of Moses', or must we realize & recognize that the WHOLE Law given TO Israel UNDER that first ( covenant ) was the Law of God ( Love ),…

2questions for the preterest believer?

For me there are 2 annoying questions? These questions are for the preterest believer and community,  which comes from this verse?

Col 1:27  to whom God did will to make known what is the riches of the glory of this secret among the nations — which is Christ in you, the hope of the glory,

1st question: Is this past, present or yet future  for the believer?

2nd question: How does faith  play a role in this picture? Is it past , present or future for the…

THE EARLY CHURCH FATHERS AND THE LAST DAYS OF THE JEWISH AGE



BARNABAS:

Written anonymously around 100 AD, the “Epistle of Barnabas” is the earliest extra-Canonical source we have. Although not included in the Canon of the New Testament, it is an incredibly early documentation of the early Church’s beliefs about the last days. The Apostle John was…

Circumcision is the mark of the beast

May 10, 1944 ( Anno New Jerusalem )

The 1,000 year reign of Christ was both literal and figurative and spanned an actual 1,000 years. Interestingly, the time from Solomon to Christ was this 1,000 years. Solomon was not the true heir of David for the throne because he didn't keep God's commandments. Jesus did and thus; Jesus was the true heir and, in a sense, ruled over Israel from the…

Matthew 5 : 5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

May 8, 1944 ( Anno New Jerusalem )

Edward Gibbon says, that "The Jewish Christians, who united the law of Moses with the Christian religion, remained in solitude in Pella about 60 years, enjoying the comfort of visiting the Holy City, which they loved and revered. They were vastly outnumbered by the Christians from Gentile nations, who rejected the Mosaic ceremonies. But…

A Glorified Body; The Gravity of Christ in Us

There is much focus of late, both the religious and so-called secular camps, on 'Heaven' & the 'After Life'!  'Is there life after death?' and what is 'Heaven really like?'; 'is there a 'heaven'?' are just of few of the questions being considered. The real question is, though, should we consider them at all!?



With so much of a focus on what happens to us when this…

Surprised by ( a Fulfilled ) Hope ( of the Resurrection )

I have recently had the privilege to pick up, and read, a book by N. T. Wright, entitled 'Surprised by Hope': I guess that you could say this article is a bit of a review of his book; but even more than that, I think, it is a review, in the wider sense, of the main thesis behind his thinking, of the future hope of the resurrection of the body.

Incompetence of the Town of Smithfield

Incompetence of the Town of Smithfield

Smithfield is a small community that is a nice quiet place to relax, play and live. Our town was incorporated on February 29, 1840 making it "Maine's only Leap Year Town". There are many things that make this town an enjoyable place, but lately the people hired in the town office have made it a difficult place to live. Specifically the selectmen Richard A. Moore, Dale M. Churchill, and Justin S. Furbush have chosen to neglect their responsibilities…

RACHEL and LEAH a once-upon-a-time story of the 2 covenants

         "...The LORD make the woman that is come into thine house like Rachel and like Leah, which two did build the house of Israel:"  (Ruth 4:11)

     This post involves some observations of the likenesses between the story of Jacob's marriages and the Old and New Covenant relationships God developed with His people.

     Taking the verse from Ruth above, we read that the two women, Rachel and Leah, were given the distinction of building Jacob's family - the "house…

The bones of Joseph

I heard a study on the paralell of Jesus and Joseph and one of the subject was the fact that Joseph wanted his bones buried in the holy land showing thus that he believed in the bio rez. Read something or have a tought on this. Thanx

Gen 50:25 YLT  And Joseph causeth the sons of Israel to swear, saying, `God doth certainly inspect you, and ye have brought up my bones from this place .'
