Naj Christian Glasujte?

Torek, 31. januar, 2012

COGwriter

Štirje možje v republikanski stranki še vedno nekoliko stoji v svojem prizadevanju, da se premakne iz položaja ameriškega predsednika Obamo in dobili službo.

Obstajata dve katoličani , ena Mormon , in ena Krstnika tek za republikansko nominacijo, da bi bila v nasprotju s precej irreligious demokrat Barack Obama (ki trdi, tudi krščansko vero).

Real kristjani glasovati?

Če je bila demokracija, ki se sankcionira v Svetem pismu za kristjane, gotovo bi bilo treba sankcionirati v Novi zavezi. Grške in rimske demokratične prakse so bile znana takrat. Demokracija ni ameriški izum (niti republikanska oblika vladavine).

V Novi zavezi beremo o Jezusu imenovanju apostole. Pavel piše, da je Bog najprej imenuje apostole, sekundarno preroke, itd za poučno Kristusovo telo (Efežanom 4:11,12).

Ko Juda je bilo treba zamenjati (po njegovi izdaji Jezusa in njegov samomor), apostoli niso imeli volitve, so sledili zgledu biblijskega iščejo Božjo voljo:

Ti, Gospod, ki vedo, srca vseh, pokaži, kateri od teh dveh Izbrali ste ... In so oddali svoje veliko. (Akti, 1:24,26).

Opazili apostoli ni odločila, da so bili usposobljeni, da vidi v srcu posameznika.

Nekateri so napisali, da so različne oblike demokracije zdaj sprejemljivo, saj menijo nekateri spisi v Apostolskih to pomeni. Zdi se, da primarni Verzi, da je v zgodbi o aktih 15. Pri aktih 15 mnogi apostoli in starešine izpolnjena skupaj, da bi razpravljali obrezovanje in poganov vernike. Množica svetovalcev je bila uporabljena, da bi razpravljali o zadevi. Nekateri menijo, da je s pomočjo odvetnika kaže demokracije. Vendar pa je dejstvo, da je bila uporabljena množica svetovalcev ne spreminja Božjo obliko vladavine. V Stari zavezi beremo, da ne samo, da je Bog vedno spodbujala to prakso (Prov 11:14), tudi beremo, da je sam Bog se ukvarjajo z njim (II Chronova 18, 18-21); Tako dejstvo, da so nekateri od vodstva Cerkve sledijo tej praksi pokaže le, da so bili od Boga vladne prakse iz Stare zaveze je treba nadaljevati.

To je zanimivo nekaj drugega, navedene v knjigi Apostolskih del,

"In zdaj vam pravim, vodijo stran od teh ljudi in jih pustite pri miru; Kajti če je ta načrt ali to delo pri moških pa bo prišel na nič; ampak, če je od Boga, ga ne morete, da ne bi strmoglavljenje vas tudi ugotovljeno, da je boj proti Bogu «(Apd 5:38-39)

T cev, ki so glasovali v posvetnih volitvah očitno verjamejo, da vedo vidike načrta Boga, da ni človeški način, da bi lahko vedeli. Toda poglejte, kaj je Bog rekel Samuelu, eno je jasno, imenovane in jih je Bog imenoval, ko je Samuel mislil, da je vedel, kdo naj bo naslednji kralj nad Izraelom,

Tako je bilo, ko so prišli, da je pogledal Eliaba in reče: "Zagotovo Gospod maziljenca je pred njim." Toda GOSPOD je rekel Samuelu: »Ne glej na njegov videz ali na vrhuncu svoje postave, ker sem so ga zavrnili. Za GOSPOD ne vidi, kakor vidi človek; za človeka gleda v videzu, ampak GOSPOD gleda v srce «(1 Sam 16:6-7).

Zanimivo je tudi, da se zavedaš, da je veliko tistih, ki menijo, da Nova zaveza sankcije demokracija prav tako menijo, da je Božji prihodnja vladajoča vlada (v Božje kraljestvo), ne bo demokracije.

Jezus je rekel apostolom, da bi bili vladarji več kot dvanajstih rodov Izraela v njegovo kraljestvo (Lk 22:30). Jezus je izbral učence, niso dobili svoja stališča pred vsako obliko demokracije (Janez 15:16; 6:70). Bog, ne človek, se je odločil, da bo David kralj nad Izraelom prvotno (Apd 13:22) in se ga tudi izbran za kralja nad vsem Izraelom na svetu pred nami (Jer 30:9).

Mimogrede, je Jezus rekel, da je Oče Bog je rezerviran kdo bo imel določene pozicije oblasti v Božje kraljestvo (Mat 20:23). Nagrade v kraljestvu bo Jezus ', da bi (Rev 22:12); ne bodo za ljudi, da sprejmejo sami.

Demokracija ne bo Božji oblika vladavine, v njegovem kraljestvu.

Zakaj?

Ena od mnogih problemov glasovanja je, da ni človek misli, kako Bog ne.

"Za Moje misli niso vaše misli, niti niso vaše poti Moje poti", pravi GOSPOD (Je 55:8).

Ko je bil Jezus na Zemlji je razglasil evangelij o Božjem kraljestvu in povedal ljudem, da se pokesajo (Mark 1:14-15). Jezus ni hotel sodelovati tudi v najbolj osnovnih vladnih odločitev, ko je bil na zemlji (Lk 12:13-14).

Čeprav je Jezus učil, da smo bili za plačilo davkov (MAT 22:17-21), je tudi učil, da Njegovo kraljestvo ni od tega sveta je (Janez 18:36). Jezus je učil svoje učence, da gredo v svet in oznanite evangelij vsem (Mat 28:19,20). Jezus je dejal, da so njegovi učenci, da bi v svetu, ne pa tudi od njega (Janez 17:16).

Apostol Peter je to jasno razumel. Zapisal je, da je del Božjega ljudstva je le en del svetega naroda (I Pet 02:09). Apostol Pavel je zapisal, da je bilo to prisotno svetovno zlo (Gal 1:04). Sveto pismo svari pred posledicami sestavni del sistemov na svetu in svojim vladam in nam pove, da pridejo iz njega in ločene (Rev 18:2-5).

Poglejte, kaj Biblija uči se bo zgodilo v zadnjih dneh in kaj kristjani storiti glede tega,

Ampak, veste, to, da se bo v zadnjih dneh nevarno časi prihajajo: Za Ljudje bodo lahko ljubitelji sami, ljubitelji denarja, boasters, ponosen, bogokletneže, neposlušni staršem, nehvaležen, Unholy, neljubeča, neprizanesljiva, obrekovalci, brez samokontrole , brutalna, despisers dobrega, izdajalci, svojeglav, ponosen, ljubitelje zabavo kot ljubitelji Boga, ki imajo obliko pobožnosti, vendar odreka svojo moč. In od takih ljudi odvrniti! (2 Tim 3:1-5).

Upoštevajte, da Božja beseda ne spodbuja glasovanja kot rešitev.

Paul je dejal, da so kristjani, da so ambasadorji za Kristusa (II Kor 05:20). Veleposlaniki pogosto živijo v tujih narodov, od katerih so nekateri očitno sovražna do svojih prepričanj. Ambasadorji, čeprav živijo v drugih družbah, ne sami vključujejo v politiki družbah, ki živijo noter je čas za Božje ljudstvo, da prevzame vlade tega sveta, vendar to še vedno ni (Janez 18:36 Dan 7:17-18). To bo po drugi prihod Jezusa (I Tes 04:16, 11:15) Rev.

Kristjanom, Peter napisal,

Ampak ste izbrali ljudi, kraljevsko duhovništvo, svet narod, ljudstvo, ki pripadajo Bogu, da ste lahko razglasijo hvali tistega, ki vas je poklical iz teme v svojo čudovito svetlobo. Ko niste bili ljudstvo, zdaj pa ste Božje ljudstvo; ko ti ne bi prejeli milosti, sedaj pa ste prejeli milosti. Dragi prijatelji, vas pozivam, kot tujce in tujci na svetu, naj se vzdržijo grešnih želja, ki je vojno proti svoji duši. Živijo tako dobro živi med pogani, ki, čeprav so ti obtožujejo delaš narobe, lahko vidijo vaša dobra dejanja in slavili Boga na dan, ko nas obišče. Predloži sebe zavoljo Gospodovega do vsakega organa, ustanovljenega med moškimi: ali kralju, kot najvišji organ, ali guvernerji, ki so poslani z njim, da bi kaznovali tiste, ki delajo narobe in pohvaliti tiste, ki so storili prav. Za to je Božja volja, da s tem dobro morate utišati nevedno govorjenje o nespametnih moške (1 Peter 2:9-15).

Tujci, seveda, ne glasuje.

Zdaj Sveto pismo ne omenja eno posebno glasovanje apostola Pavla (ko je bil še Savel in tako nepresnovljena). Opazili, kar je kasneje rekel o tem:

Dejansko sem tudi sam mislil, da moram narediti veliko stvari, ki so v nasprotju z imenom Jezusa iz Nazareta. To sem tudi storil v Jeruzalemu, in veliko svetih sem zaprl v zaporu, ki je prejel pooblastilo od vélikih duhovnikov; in ko so jih usmrtili, sem odda svoj ​​glas proti njim (Apd 26:9-10).

In medtem ko je zgornja, ni samo po sebi odejo obsodbo vseh glasovanja, to je edini čas, beseda "glas" ali "glasujejo" je v Svetem pismu. In to ne kaže, da sploh versko prizadevni / konzervativni posamezniki niso vedno volijo pravilno, in lahko storite veliko stvari, ki so v nasprotju z imenom Jezusa iz Nazareta.

Ne verjamem, da so kristjani Sveto pismo sankcije glasovali v mesenih volitvah. Prav tako ne verjamem, da bo prihajajoče predsedniške volitve v ZDA ali volitve v drugih anglo-potomci narodov za posledico vrsto kesanja, da je treba ti narodi.

Nekateri predmeti morda pripadajočimi obrestmi, lahko vključujejo:

Naj Christian Glasujte? Ta člen daje nekaj svetopisemskih utemeljitve o tej temi. Jezus bi glasovali za predsednika / predsednika vlade? Glasuje v Svetem pismu? To je predmet kristjani morali razumeti.

Ki je oblika upravljanja, bi pričakovali, da imajo v Philadelphia ostanek? Ljudje odločijo in / ali oblike odbora, ak diktature, ali isto vrsto, ki je imela sama Philadelphia era?
Ali Early Church Teach Millenarianism? Was tisočletje (včasih imenovana chiliasm) učili prvih kristjanov? Kdo ga je obsodil. Bo Jezus dobesedno kraljeval 1000 let na Zemlji? Je tokrat v bližini?

Ta članek vsebuje veliko biblijskih in ne-svetopisemske prerokbe, iz vsega sveta, da se zdi, da bi razpravljali o Baracku Obami. Ali Nostradamus napovedujejo, Barack Obama, ki se ukvarjajo z Antikrist? Morda Barack Obama je pripravil teren za kralji na severu in jugu, kot vsaj ena šiitska prerokba kaže?

(Reuters) - Z Rusijo poslali vojne ladje odvračajo tuje posredovanje v Siriji in Kitajska sestavljen globlje v iranski spopad z Zahodom, "velesila" politika se hitro vrača na Bližnjem vzhodu ... Oba sta nakazala jasno namero, da se prepreči kakršna koli " sprememba režima "posredovanje v Siriji ; ampak uvajanje Rusije svojega paradnega letalonosilke in spremljevalcev v pristanišče Sirije iz Tarza ta mesec narisal starker kot običajno črto v pesku ... "Vsakič West napenja povodec, Peking tiho poslužuje ohlapnimi," pravi Thomas Barnett, nekdanji strateg za ameriške mornarice ...

Washington Post 31. januar 2012, Mumbai, India - Indija je pridružila Kitajski, ko pravim, da ne bo zmanjšal nazaj na uvoz nafte iz Irana, kljub trd novem ZDA in evropskih sankcij za pritisk Teheran glede svojega jedrskega programa.

Sirske opozicije: Rusija, Iran tvegajo odnose z bodočo Siriji

Ynetnews - 31. januar 2012

Sirski član Ugovor Fahed Al-Masri je povedal libanonski radijsko postajo, da bodo prizadevanja Rusije in Irana, so odločitev, da bi rešili režim predsednika Asada se bo odrazilo v prihodnjih odnosih držav s Sirijo. "Rusija bo izgubila svojo zadnjo oporo na Bližnjem vzhodu in v Siriji, "je dejal in dodal, da če je Moskva še naprej nasprotuje stališče mednarodne skupnosti v Siriji ...

Torej tri geografsko največja pooblastila na vzhodu jemljete stojnice v popolnem nasprotju z Zahodom. Sveto pismo v končni fazi pomeni, da bo očitno ruski vodstvom Eurasian konfederacija bo od preostale moči na Zahodu (ki je v tem času se bo pod vodstvom Evropske King of the North). In Kitajska in Indija se zdi, da je prerokoval, da podpira Rusko vodstvom konfederacije.

Ampak, da bo kasneje, tik pred vrnitvijo Jezusa Kristusa (Razodetje 09:16, 16:12-16).

V tem času vzhod je predvajal nevarno igro, ki je verjetno, da izgubijo, vsaj v diplomatskem smislu.

Ne glede na to, kakšni so njihovi gospodarski interesi, niti Rusija niti Indija želite islamsko moč, da dvignejo. In kljubuje zahodne sankcije, morda ti narodi menijo, da tako, da se islamski svet v Iranu in Siriji, ostalih arabskih narodov, turškimi narodi, Pakistan, Afganistan, Indonezijo, da bo ta delitev preprečiti islamskim svetom moči od dviga .

Če menijo, da so v zmoti.

Islamska moč ( kralj na jugu od svetopisemske prerokbe), ki ga arabske oblasti očitno pripeljala, pa se bo dvignil. S podporo Sirijo, kot je bil, bo Rusija odtujiti arabski svet (Arabska liga je večinoma podprli Zahod v zvezi s Sirijo in ni posebej ljubitelj Irana). Sirija ne bo nadaljevalo, kot je in Iran lahko nevtraliziramo, vsaj do določene mere.

Kaj tri vzhodne pooblastila, so v bistvu počne, je povedal, arabski svet, da je bolje sodelovati s Evropejcev kot z Rusijo, Kitajsko ali Indijo. In sodelovanje med arabskimi in evropskimi svetov je nekaj, kar se bo začasno storiti (Daniel 11:27; Psalm 83:3-8).

Kitajska, ki je sam, se zanima za vire, kot so nafta in ljubi, da izkoristijo priložnosti, ki jih kupujejo zahodne sankcije, na primer, lahko zagotovijo. Še Kitajska potrebuje trge na zahodu več kot je v resnici potrebuje iransko nafto. Enako velja tudi za v bistvu Indiji.

Iran in Sirija sta res ni tako pomembno, da se Rusiji, na Kitajskem in v Indiji, ki jih bodo podprli ne glede na to, kaj (čeprav bo prihodnji zavezništvo s Perzijci / Iranci, ampak to je za čas po tisočletno vladavino Kristusa in obravnavamo v Ezekiel 38:1-9).

Torej kljub nastopaštva od teh treh vzhodnih pristojnosti, dejstvo pa je, da bo Zahod pridobili največji vpliv na Bližnjem vzhodu, od tega, kar se sedaj dogaja.

Iran ne bo vodja kralja na jugu in karkoli preživi v Siriji (prim. Izaija 17:1), bo očitno podpirajo prihajajo arabski voditelj Daniel 11:40. Če tisti, v Rusiji, na Kitajskem in v Indiji razume svetopisemske prerokbe bolje bi se zavedajo, da bi morala njihova trenutna stojalo morda treba spremeniti v zvezi z Iranom in Sirijo.

Ki jih zanima učenje več, morda želijo študirati na naslednje člene:

Rusija: Njegove korenine in prerokovali prihodnost Rusije v prerokbe. Kje so Rusi prišli? Kaj pa tisti v Ukrajini? Kaj je prerokoval za Rusijo in njenih zaveznikov? Kaj bodo storili za Evropejce, ki so podprli Zver na koncu?
Rusija King of the North? Nekateri trdijo, da je. Toda kaj Sveto pismo naučil?
Indija, Njegova Biblical preteklostjo in prihodnostjo: Vsak Witness? Sveto pismo opisuje začetke tiste indijske dediščine ter obravnava nekatere priče do njih (vključno s tistimi v Bangladešu, Pakistanu in na Šrilanki).
Kitajska Njena biblično preteklost in prihodnost, 1. del: Genesis in kitajske pismenke Kje Kitajci prihajajo? Ta člen določa podatke, ki kažejo, da morajo kitajski narodi znanega o različnih računov v Geneze do leta njihove razpršenosti po babilonski stolp.
Kitajska, Its Biblical preteklost in prihodnost, 2. del: Sabbath in nekaj Božje priče na Kitajskem Kdaj je krščanstvo prvič prišel na Kitajsko? In je tam zgodaj dokazi, da so opazili sedmi dan soboto?
Azija v Prophecy Kaj je Ahead za Azijo? Kdo so "Kings of the East"? Kaj se bo zgodilo, da bodo skoraj vsi Kitajci, Rusi, Indijci in drugi Azije? Kitajska v prerokbe, kje? Kdo ima 200.000.000 človek vojske v zvezi z Armageddon?
Kdo je kralj severa? Ali obstaja? Ali svetopisemske in rimskokatoliška prerokbe kažejo na isto vodjo? Treba je sledil? Kdo bo kralj severa razpravljali v Daniel 11? Is a nuclear attack prophesied to happen to the English-speaking peoples of the United States, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand ? Kdaj na 1335 dni, 1290 dni in 1.260 dni (čas, čas in pol časa), Daniel 12 začeli? When does the Bible show that economic collapse will affect the United States?
Is There A Future King of the South?
Some no longer believe there needs to be. Might Egypt, Islam, Iran, Arabs, or Ethiopia be involved? Might this King be called the Mahdi? Kaj pravi Sveto pismo?
Arabskim in islamskim svetom V Svetem pismu, zgodovine in Prophecy Sveto pismo opisuje začetke arabskem svetu in razpravlja o Bližnjem vzhodu v prerokbe. What is ahead for the Middle East and those who follow Islam? What about the Imam Mahdi? What lies ahead for Turkey, Iran, and the other non-Arabic Muslims?

Europe Agrees to Closer Fiscal Union

The Europeans somewhat have another agreement for closer fiscal union:

30 January 20122

BY STEPHEN FIDLER,LAURENCE NORMAN AND MATINA STEVIS

BRUSSELS—Leaders of 25 European Union governments agreed Monday night on what some billed as a historic pact to move to closer fiscal union and signed off on the details of a permanent bailout fund for the euro zone—yet Greece's looming debt restructuring threw a shadow over the summit. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204740904577192253105056954.html

By Julien Toyer and Paul Taylor

BRUSSELS | Mon Jan 30, 2012

(Reuters) – Chancellor Angela Merkel cemented her political ascendancy in Europe on Monday when 25 out of 27 EU states agreed to a German-inspired pact for stricter budget discipline, even as they struggled to rekindle growth from the ashes of austerity.

Le Velika Britanija in Češka zavrnili podpis fiskalni pakt marec, ki bodo povzročile kvazi-avtomatske sankcije za države, ki kršijo meje Evropske unije, proračunski primanjkljaj pa bo zagotovljena uravnoteženih proračunskih pravil v nacionalno zakonodajo. http://www.reuters.com/ article/2012/01/30/us-eu-summit-idUSTRE80S0SR20120130

To je še en korak k izpolnitvi svetopisemskih prerokb, povezanih dviga končnega Evropska Beast moči.

Tisti med nami, v Living Božje Cerkve že dolgo učil, da Združeno kraljestvo ne bo realni del končne energije, ki se bo pojavil v Evropi. Tisti, ki na Češkem bo skoraj zagotovo del te končne energije.

Biblija, v Razodetju 17, je jasno, da bodo Evropejci še vedno morala reorganizirati v prihodnosti:

12 "Deset rogov, ki ste videli deset kraljev, ki so prejeli nobenega kraljestvo, kot še ni, vendar pa prejemajo pooblastila za eno uro, kot kralji z zverjo. 13 To so ene mislih, in ti bo dal svojo moč in oblast zveri. (Razodetje 17:12-13)

Koraki k se to dogaja še naprej, kot smo v Living Božje Cerkve že dolgo učil, in da se bo trkanja na cesti in težave (glavna državljanski nemiri, ali še huje, lahko pride).

Seveda, da je Sveto pismo jasno, da končno Evropska Zver moč ne bo dejansko zelo enotna, saj bo v bistvu je kombinacija močne in šibke, ali kot je Sveto pismo bolj dobesedno navaja, železo in glina:

41. ker si videl noge in prste, deloma iz gline lončarskem in deloma iz železa, kraljestvo se deli; Še Moč železa je v njej, tako kot si videl železo pomešano s keramično glino. 42 In kakor prsti na nogah so bile deloma iz železa, deloma iz ila, tako kraljestvo bo deloma močno, deloma šibke. 43. Kot ste videli železo pomešano s keramično glino, bodo družijo s semenom moških; vendar pa ne bo upoštevala drug drugega, tako kot železo ne mešajte z glino. (Daniel 2:41-43)

Glede na Sveto pismo prerokbe, evropska sila, kljub svoji krhkosti je usojeno, da začasno ne najbolj dominantna sila na svetu, na koncu osvojiti Anglo-potomci narodov (to je ZDA in njeni zavezniki Anglo-kot je Velika Britanija, ki ima najmočnejši trdnjave Daniel 11:39), kasneje pridejo do njenega konca (Daniel 11:45).

But before it is destroyed (Daniel 11:21-44), the final Beast power must come together and get to the place where it has major economic influence. Tonight's announcement is another sign that Europe intends to move in that direction (though it will likely have more problems before it is the final Beast power).

Nekateri predmeti morda pripadajočimi obrestmi, lahko vključujejo:

Europa, Zver in Razodetje Kje si Evropa dobil svoje ime? Kaj bi morala Evropa narediti z Razodetja? Kaj pa "zver"? Using the Tower of Babel and “Beast” images suggests it is not concerned about its role as being part of the future Babylon of Bible prophecy.
Who is the King of the North? Is there one? Ali svetopisemske in rimskokatoliška prerokbe kažejo na isto vodjo? Should he be followed? Kdo bo kralj severa razpravljali v Daniel 11? Is a nuclear attack prophesied to happen to the English-speaking peoples of the United States, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand ? Kdaj na 1335 dni, 1290 dni in 1.260 dni (čas, čas in pol časa), Daniel 12 začeli? What MUST happen BEFORE the Great Tribulation?
Might German Baron Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg become the King of the North?
Is the German Defense Minister one to watch? Kaj katoliških, bizantinske in svetopisemske prerokbe predlagaš?
Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel Are the Americans, Canadians, English, Scottish, Welsh, Australians, Anglo (non-Dutch) Southern Africans, and New Zealanders descendants of Joseph? Where are the lost ten-tribes of Israel? Kdo so izgubili plemena Izraela? Kaj se bo zgodilo, da Jeruzalemu in Judi v Izraelu? Bog bo kaznoval ZDA, Kanada, Velika Britanija in druge Anglo narode? Why might God allow them to be punished first?
Bo Anglo-narodov Divided in so ljudje Taken kot sužnji? Bo pristane v Združenih državah Amerike, Veliki Britaniji, Kanadi, Avstraliji in Novi Zelandiji je razdeljen? What about Jerusalem? What does Bible prophecy teach? Ali obstajajo ne-svetopisemske prerokbe, ki podpirajo to idejo? Kdo bo razkorak te dežele? Who will end up with the lands and the people?
Kanada v Prophecy: Kaj Ali Bible Prophecy, katoliška Prophecy in druge Napovedi Predlagaj O prihodnosti Kanade Obstajajo prerokbe, ki kažejo sodelovanje s Kanado. In mnogi niso pozitivno mnenje o njeni prihodnosti.
Kdo je kralj na Zahodu? Zakaj ni Končni čas King of the West v Bible Prophecy? Ali Združene države King of the West?

Philippines Considering Closer Military Ties to USA Again

Monday, January 30th, 2012


Mount Apo in Mindanao, Philippines

COGwriter

The Philippines is considering getting into a closer military arrangement with the USA:

The Philippines Weighs an Increased US Military Presence
30 January 2012
The United States and the Philippines are discussing enhancing military ties partly in response to increasing Chinese assertiveness in the Asia-Pacific region. Because the biggest threats to the Philippines' security have long been internal, Manila has some of the weakest external defense capabilities in Southeast Asia.
However, Manila will balance attempts to increase these capabilities against a potential backlash from both China, a top trading partner with increasing economic influence, and from its own people, for whom increasing the US military presence remains a controversial issue.

Last summer, the President of the Philippines, indicated that he did not need to fear China (see Philippine's President Threatens China ).

While a deal with the USA may temporarily make carnal sense, in the long-run I believe that the Philippines will likely align with China, but we will see.

The Living Church of God has about 33 congregations in the Philippines .

Violent Sports, Violent Endings

Monday, January 30th, 2012

COGwriter

Last night, there was a segment on CBS' 60 Minutes as well as an entire CNN program by Dr. Sanjay Gupta concerning damage done to participants in the most watched violent sport in the USA–American football.

Both programs covered the deaths of various players happening because of concussions and other hits which happen from playing the game. How the brain is damaged from such activity was also covered. The CNN piece covered the claim of one researcher who said that the average high school football player suffered 650 sub-concussion level hits each season. The fruits of that were not good. Violent sports result in violent endings.

In the time of ancient Rome, violent sports were also popular.

Were they viewed by many of those that professed Christ?

It does not appear so.

While we do not seem to have many direct references from those in the Church of God, we do have some written records of those who were at least somewhat familiar with the teachings of Jesus and the practices of the earliest Christians.

Here is something from Theophilus of Antioch (who probably was part of the Church of God) perhaps written about 180 AD:

Razmislite torej, ali lahko tisti, ki poučujejo take stvari morda živi brezbrižno, in zmešamo v nezakoniti spolni odnos, ali je večina brezbožno vse, jedo človeško meso, še posebej, ko smo prepovedan toliko kot priča oddaj gladiatorjev, da ne postanemo deležniki in abettors umorov. Ampak ne, lahko vidimo druge spektakle, da ne bi oskrunili naše oči in ušesa, ki sodelujejo v govorici tam poje. (Theophilus Antiohijski. Da Autolycus, knjige III, poglavje XV. Prevedla Marcus Dods, AM izvleček iz Ante Nicejsko očetov, zvezek 2. Uredil Alexander Roberts & James Donaldson. Ameriška izdaja, 1885. Online Edition)

Torej, pravi kristjani niso verjeli, da so za gledanje nasilnih športih, tako priljubljena v drugem stoletju.

Tatian, izpoveduje Christian apologet, je napisal okoli 170 AD:

In za te priče zasesti svojih sedežev, in boksarice sestane na dvoboj, brez razloga karkoli, niti ne enem pridi dol v areno bi pomagal. Ali take razstave so ti Pasti kredita? On, ki je glavni med vami zbira legijo morilcev krvi obarvajo, sodelovanje njihovo vzdrževanje; in ti rokovnjačem so tja poslali z njim, in si sestavite na spektakel, da bi sodniki, delno hudobijam presojevalca, in deloma, da od ljudi, ki sodelujejo v boju. In kdor pogreša morilsko razstavo žalostjo, ker ni bil obsojen, da je gledalec hudobnih in neverni in odvratna dejanja (Tatian. Prevedla JE Ryland. Tatian je naslov do Grkov, poglavja XXIII. Izvleček iz Ante Nicejsko očetov, zvezek 2. Uredil Alexander Roberts & James Donaldson. Ameriška izdaja, 1885. Online Edition Copyright © 2004 K. Knight).

Athenagoras, izpoveduje Christian apologet, je napisal okoli 170 AD:

Kaj človek pri zdravi pameti, zato bo zatrdila, medtem kot je naš znak, da smo morilci? ...

Kdo ne računati med stvareh najbolj zanimivi so tekmovanja za gladiatorje in divjih zveri, zlasti tiste, ki so podane z vami? Ampak mi, štele, da vidim človeka usmrtili kar je približno enako kot ga ubili, so zanikale take spektakle (Athenagoras. prošnja za kristjane poglavja XXXV. Prevedla BP Pratten. Izvleček iz Ante-Nicejsko očetov, zvezek 2 . Uredil Alexander Roberts & James Donaldson. ameriški izdaja, 1885. Online Edition Copyright © 2004 K. Knight).

Še danes mnogi kristjani zavedati, da je gledanje brutalnih dogodkov namenov povzroča telesne poškodbe, kot so realno boks, neprimerno.

Notice that this is also the position of the third century Catholic theologian and bishop Hippolytus, who also adds various occupations to those that reject one from being a follower of Christ:

16:6 A charioteer, likewise, or one who takes part in the games, or one who goes to the games, he shall cease or he shall be rejected. 7 If someone is a gladiator, or one who teaches those among the gladiators how to fight, or a hunter who is in the wild beast shows in the arena, or a public official who is concerned with gladiator shows, either he shall cease, or he shall be rejected. 8 If someone is a priest of idols, or an attendant of idols, he shall cease or he shall be rejected. 9 A military man in authority must not execute men. If he is ordered, he must not carry it out. Nor must he take military oath. If he refuses, he shall be rejected. 10 If someone is a military governor, or the ruler of a city who wears the purple, he shall cease or he shall be rejected. 11 The catechumen or faithful who wants to become a soldier is to be rejected, for he has despised God. (Hippolytus. The Apostolic Tradition of Hippolytus of Rome. From the work of Bernard Botte (La Tradition Apostolique. Sources Chretiennes, 11 bis. Paris, Editions du Cerf, 1984) and of Gregory Dix (The Treatise on the Apostolic Tradition of St. Hippolytus of Rome, Bishop and Martyr. London: Alban Press, 1992) as translated by Kevin P. Edgecomb http://www.bombaxo.com/hippolytus.html viewed 08/06/09)

So, those who professed Christ in the second and third century generally did not feel that viewing or participating in violent sports was appropriate.

In more recent times, the late Herbert W. Armstrong wrote:

Hostility toward the other is sin …Boxing at Ambassador College is definitely banned. God did not create the human brain and head to be pummeled and knocked senseless by an antagonist .

Wherever a game in sports involves antagonists–in hostile attitude to harm the other and/or to “get” from the other–to get the best of the other then a harmful, satanic and evil attitude enters in, and the sport is evil, not good…

Nogomet (ameriški nogomet), je nasilen telo kontakt šport. It is often played with an attitude of hostility and is dangerous and is fraught with physical injury . (Plain Truth, julij-avgust 1984)

“Love does no harm to a neighbor” (Romans 13:9), yet what do violent sports like American football and boxing do? Are those who participate neighbors for Christians? Should people be encouraged to participate in violent activities which are proven to cause harm?

This is something that Christians, and others, should think about.

Was the 100 Year Period or Purgatory Taught in Early History?

Anne Catherine Emmerich Claimed to See Purgatory

COGwriter

Does God have a plan for those who are not called, chosen, and faithful (Revelation 17:14) in this age who are not incorrigibly wicked and have not committed the “unpardonable sin”?

Da.

Notice a passage that many do not understand today:

20 No more shall an infant from there live but a few days, Nor an old man who has not fulfilled his days; For the child shall die one hundred years old, But the sinner being one hundred years old shall be accursed. (Isaiah 65:20)

And did early professors of Christ realize this had to do with God's plan of salvation?

Da.

Medtem ko imam članke s številnimi spisi o tej temi (glej, na primer, Universal Ponudba Salvation: Obstaja na stotine verzov iz Biblije, ki podpirajo doktrino True Apocatastasis ), začnimo ven z drugo razlago stoletja Izaija s Irenej do kažejo, kar se je zdelo, da je splošno znano v prihodnjih dneh, ne preveč dolgo po smrti zadnjega izmed prvotnih apostolov:

Zdaj, da obljube niso bile napovedane za prerokov in očetov sam, ampak Cerkvami združili, da bi bili ti narodi, ki tudi duhu izraza "otoke" (tako zato, ker so ustanovljena sredi turbulence, trpijo Nevihta kletvami, obstajati kot pristanišče varnosti tistih, ki so v nevarnosti, in so zatočišče tistim, ki ljubijo Višina [nebes], in si prizadevati, da bi se izognili Bythus, da je globina napake), Jeremiah tako izjavlja: " Čujte besedo GOSPODOVO, Ye narodom, in jo razglaša za otoke v daljavi; rekli ste, da bo GOSPOD razprši Izraela, bo On ga zbrali, in ga vodijo, kot eno hranjenje svojo čredo ovac ...

In še enkrat, pa je rekel isto stvar: "Glejte, jaz bi Jeruzalem radost in moje ljudi [veselje]; kajti glas joka ne bo več slišal zanjo, niti glas jokati. Prav tako pa ne sme biti obstajajo nezreli [en], niti starec, ki ne izpolnjuje svojega časa: kajti mladinski biti sto let; in grešnik umrl star sto let, vendar se preklet. In se gradijo hiše in v njih prebivali sami; in zasadil vinograde in jedli sad njih same, in piti vino. In se ne sme graditi, drugi pa živijo; niti se pripravljajo vinograd, in drugi jedo. Za toliko dni na drevesu življenja so dnevi ljudi v tebi; za dela svojih rok začne prenašati "(Irenaeus. Adversus haereses, Knjiga V, poglavje 34 Verzi 2-3,4. izvleček iz Ante Nicejsko očetov, Volume 1. Uredil Alexander Roberts & James Donaldson. srbska izdaja, 1885 . Online Edition Copyright © 2004 K. Knight).

Drugi, kot Origen iz Aleksandrije, je tudi zapisal, da ima Bog načrt ponuditi odrešitev za vse.

Veliko katoliško in protestantsko znanstveniki ugotovil, da je bil Origen eden od najbolj zgodnjih piscev teoloških (živel od okrog 185-232 AD). Papež Benedikt XVI je javno pohvalil Origen.

Opozoriti protestantski zgodovinar KS Latourette zapisal, da "je bil dejansko eden izmed največjih krščanskih glavah." Origen In medtem ko se ne morem strinjati s tem, da je v interesu, upoštevajte, da Latourette upoštevati:

Origen je učil, da bodo na koncu vsi duhovi, ki so padli proč od Boga ponovno v popolni skladnosti z njim. To lahko prišlo le z njihovim sodelovanjem, imajo svobodo, da sprejme ali zavrne odkup kovano v Kristusu. Pred popolno obnovo bodo trpeli kazen, vendar kazen naj bi bilo poučno, da jih očistite od pomanjkljivosti, ki jih prinaša njihov greh. Po koncu današnjega časa in njegove svetu bo še prišel na starost, tako Origen verjel, v katerem so bili ponovno rojeni bo še naprej rasla in nepopravljiv bo dal dodatno priložnost za kesanje (Latourette KS zgodovini krščanstva, Volume 1, Začetki do 1500. Harper Collins, San Francisco, 1975, str.151).

Origen je bil blizu, s tem, da ne bo vse pokesajo, kajti bo tudi tisti, postavljeno na "večno gnusobo" (Daniel 0:02, KJV), kar pomeni, da tisti, ki ne bi pravilno pokesajo ne bodo prejeli zveličanje, vendar smo v življenju Božja Cerkev menijo, da so manjšina. Vendar Origen je pravilno, da se bo to zgodilo le s sodelovanjem tistih, ki so trenutno shranjen.

Tukaj je nekaj citatov neposredno iz Origen:

... Je dober oče ni popolnoma zapuščen, tiste, ki so odpadli od njega (Origen. Komentar Janezovega evangelija (Book I). Izvleček iz Ante-Nicejsko očetov, zvezek 9. Uredil Allan Menzies, DD ameriški Edition, 1896 in 1897. Online Edition Copyright © 2004 K. Knight).

Treba je opozoriti, pa je, da nekatera bitja, ki so padli proč od tega enega začetka, od katerih smo govorili, so se potopili do take globine nevrednosti in hudobije, kot se zdi popolnoma nevredni tega usposabljanja in navodil, s katerim Človeška rasa, medtem ko je v mesu, so usposobljeni in naročil s pomočjo nebesnih sil; in še naprej, nasprotno, v stanju sovraštvo in nasprotovanje tistim, ki prejemajo ta navodila in poučevanje. In zato je to, da je celotna življenju smrtnika polno bojev in poskusov, ki jih je opozicija in sovraštva tistih, ki so padle iz boljšem stanju, ne da bi sploh gledam nazaj, in ki se imenuje hudič in njegovi angeli povzročajo, in druge naloge zla, ki apostol uvrstijo med nasprotujočimi si silami. Toda, ali je katera od teh nalogov, ki delujejo v okviru vlade, hudiča, in ubogati njegove ukaze hudobne, bo v prihodnjem svetu, se pretvori v pravičnosti zaradi svoje, ki ima sposobnost za svobodo volje, ali lahko obstojna in nepopravljivi hudobija je treba spremeniti z močjo navade v naravi, je rezultat, ki ga sami, bralec, lahko odobravam, če ne v teh sedanjih svetov, ki so videli in časovne, niti tistih, ki so nevidni in so večni, ta del je, da se v celoti razlikuje od končno enotnost in fitness stvari (Origen. De Principiis, Knjiga I, poglavje 6, verz 3).

... In tako skozi številne in neštetih naročilu progresivnih bitja, ki se spravite se z Bogom iz stanja sovraštva, je končno dosegel zadnji sovražnik, ki se imenuje smrt, tako da se je tudi treba uničiti, in ne sme biti več sovražnik. Ko torej vse racionalne duše so se že ponovno v stanju te vrste, potem bo narava tega telesa je naša, do spremembe v slavi duhovnega telesa. Kajti, kot smo videli, da ne bi veljalo v primeru racionalnih naravi, da so nekateri od njih živeli v stanju propadanja zaradi svojih grehov, medtem ko so drugi poklicani, da stanje sreče zaradi svojih zaslug; ampak kot smo videli te iste duše, ki so bile prej grešno, ki mu pomaga, po njihovi pretvorbi in spravo z Bogom, v stanje sreče (Origen. De Principiis, Book III, poglavja 6, verz 6).

Medtem ko smo v lCG ne bi beseda je precej na ta način, te kotacije pa kažejo, da je ideja, da ima Bog načrt, ki bo dala nepopravljiv priložnost po tem tej starosti ni nov koncept.

Pravzaprav, nauk o vicah razvita med državami Latinske katolikov, potem ko so začeli obsojati nekatere Origen idej v šestem stoletju. Ko se je to zgodilo nauke, povezanih s ponudbo odrešenja za vse (znan kot apocatastasis) so bile tudi nekoliko obsodil. Vendar pa to pusti vrzel v rimskem teologije in ideja o vicah nato razvil.

Grški katoličani (zdaj znana kot vzhodno pravoslavno), vendar pa nikoli ni sprejel latinsko idejo o vicah in še danes imajo veliko takih, ki verjamejo, da ima Bog neke vrste načrt ponuditi odrešenje tistih, ki se niso namerno zavračajo odrešitev.

Katoliška enciklopedija sama priznava, da prvi kristjani niso naučili, svoj ​​trenutni koncept njenega vice doktrino:

Nekateri poudarjajo, je bila tudi določena na podlagi ugovora, da so imeli stari kristjani ni jasno predstavo o vicah, in da so mislili, da so duše oddaljila ostali v negotovosti odrešenja do zadnjega dneva ... Obstaja več odlomki iz Nove zaveze, ki kažejo na Postopek čiščenja po smrti. Tako je Jezus Kristus izjavi (Matej 00:32): "In kdor govori besedo zoper Sina človekovega, da se ga odpusti, a tisti, ki govorijo proti Svetemu Duhu, da se ne bo odpustil, niti v ta svet, niti v svetu, da pridejo "... (Hanna, Purgatory. Catholic Encyclopedia).

Ne, v drugem stoletju, so verjeli, da bi božji načrt omogoči vsem, ki se ponudi odrešitev, bodisi v tej starosti ali starosti, da pridejo, če ni storil na "neodpustljiv greh« (Mt 12:32, Mark 10:30 ; Luke 18:30, Apd 3:17-21; Efežanom 1:21, Hebrejcem 6:4-6;. prim. Mt 10:15, 11:22-24, Mark 06:11, Lk 10:12-14) .). In Nova zaveza, je zelo jasno, da:

"Vse meso videli Božje zveličanje« (Lk 03:06).

V trinajstem stoletju znameniti katoliški teolog Tomaž Akvinski zapisal naslednje:

Nič ni jasno navedeno v Svetem pismu o položaju vicah, niti ni mogoče ponuditi prepričljivih argumentov v zvezi s tem vprašanjem ...

Nekateri pravijo pa, da je kraj vic je po običajnem pravu, kjer človek grehi. To ne zdi verjetno, saj se človek lahko kaznovani hkrati grehov, dodeljenih v različnih krajih. In drugi pravijo, da je v skladu s common law so kaznovani nad nami, ker so med nami in Bogom, glede na njihovo stanje. Ampak to je brez pomena, kajti niso kaznovani za to, da nad nami, ampak za to, kar je najnižje v njih, sicer sin (Akvinski T. Summa Theologica svetega Tomaža Akvinskega, Dodatek II, člen 1. Drugega in revidirano izdaja, 1920. Nihil Obstat. F. Innocentius Apap, OP, STM, Censor. Theol. Imprimatur. EDU-ji. Canonicus Surmont, Vicarius eneralis. Westmonasterii. APPROBATIO ORDINIS Nihil Obstat. F. Raphael Moss, OP, STL in F. Leo Moore OP, STL Imprimatur. F. Beda Jarrett, OP, STL, AM, Prior Provincialis Angliæ).

Iz navedenega je jasno, da tudi v srednjem veku, je bila ideja o vicah nejasen, celo med voditelji Cerkve v Rimu.

Purgatory je v bistvu sprejela po tem, ko so bili nekateri nauki, povezani z Origen obsojen v 6. stoletju:

Od trenutka, kljub temu, da so prevladovale anti-Origenism, nauk apokatastasis je zagotovo opustili. St Augustine bolj kot kateri koli drug pisatelj pred napako, da je v nasprotju z doktrino o nujnosti milosti ... protestira (Batiffel, Apocatastassis. The Catholic Encyclopedia).

Zgodovina kaže, da je po tem, ko je bil obsojen apocatastasis sredi 6. stoletja, nekaj, kar spominja na sodobne koncepte vicah so se jih je izreklo Roman škof papeža Gregorja sem okoli 600 AD

Perhaps I should mention that although Anne Emmerich claimed to see purgatory, she also claimed to have seen “limbo” and the current pope has indicated that “limbo” does not exist. Hence, a claim to see one place that does not exist should tell all that the same one claiming to see something else does not mean it exists either. There is no place that fits the modern Roman description of purgatory.

The Church of God originally taught apocatastasis, not purgatory. And still does so today. God is a God of love and does have a merciful plan of salvation–and it includes getting the gospel out in this age (Note: The “short work” that Paul speaks of in Romans 9:28 and the completion of Matthew 24:14 will likely include massive news coverage of what the most faithful flock is teaching. This, of course, does not mean that the most faithful should sit around and wait and not do their part–cf. John 9:4; Matthew 9:37-38–as the priority of proclaiming the gospel remains). Of course, people should respond once they learn–those who reject the truth are risking committing the unpardonable sin .

Yet, God has always had a plan for the unsaved and those who did not truly ever understand His loving plan, it is revealed in scripture, and while there is an “age to come,” it is not the same as the relatively modern idea of purgatory.

Some articles for further inquiry may include:

Did the Early Church Teach Purgatory? Is there a place called purgatory? Does God have a plan to help those who did not become saints in this life?
What is Limbo? Is There Such a Place as Limbo? What Happens to Babies When They Die? When did Limbo start being taught? What is the truth about dead babies?
Universal Offer of Salvation: There Are Hundreds of Verses in the Bible Supporting the Doctrine of True Apocatastasis Do you believe what the Bible actually teaches on this? Will all good things be restored? Does God's plan of salvation take rebellion and spiritual blindness into account?
Hope of Salvation: How the Living Church of God differ from most Protestants How the Living Church of God differs from mainstream/traditional Protestants, is perhaps the question I am asked most by those without a Church of God background.
Should the Church Still Try to Place its Top Priority on Proclaiming the Gospel or Did Herbert W. Armstrong Change that Priority for the Work? Some say the Church should mainly feed the flock now as that is what Herbert W. Armstrong reportedly said. Is that what he said? Je to tisto, kar pravi Sveto pismo? What did Paul and Herbert W. Armstrong expect from evangelists?
What is the Unpardonable Sin? What is it? Can you repent of it? Do you know what it is and how to avoid it?

Occupy Oakland Turns Violent, About 300 Arrested

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

COGwriter

About 300 protesters in 'Occupy Oakland got arrested:

29 January 2012

(AP) OAKLAND, Calif. — Dozens of police maintained a late-night guard around City Hall following daylong protests that resulted in 300 arrests. Occupy Oakland demonstrators broke into the historic building and burned a US flag, as officers earlier fired tear gas to disperse people throwing rocks and tearing down fencing at a convention center…

Interim Police Chief Howard Jordan said about 300 arrests were made.

“These demonstrators stated their intention was to provoke officers and engage in illegal activity and that's exactly what has occurred today,” Santana said…

{Oakland Mayor Quan said} “This is not a situation where we had a 1,000 peaceful people and a few violent people. If you look at what's happening today in terms of destructing property, throwing at and charging the police, it's almost like they are begging for attention and hoping that the police will make an error.” http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57367945/300-arrested-in-occupy-oakland-protests/

Occupy Oakland protests turned violent Saturday as demonstrators broke into a historic building and burned an American flag, and officers fired tear gas to disperse people throwing rocks and tearing down fencing at a convention center. http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Latest-News-Wires/2012/0129/Occupy-Oakland-protests-bring-300-arrests

Back on October 9, 2011, I posted the following on this news page (see Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Seattle, Occupy Vancouver, etc. ):
I have been writing for a long time that civil unrest and riots will happen in the USA and the other Anglo-descended lands… Some consider this “Occupy” movement simply a political protest, a new “Tea Party,” except for the Left instead of the Right. Sumim, da bo na koncu izkaže nasilni in ZDA ter drugih dežel se bodo soočile nemire in civilne nemire in politiki in učenjaki, ki so se je zdelo, da podprejo to bo kasneje obžaloval.

As I reported yesterday, I believe that there will be more violence in the USA. Some in the Occupy Movement and/or some once associated with it will later stir up more violence. Much more than happened in Oakland.

The sorrows and troubles are just beginning (Matthew 24:5-8) and will get much worse (Matthew 24:21-22). I believe that class warfare and other protests will help weaken the USA and other Anglo-nations and may also be a factor in them being vulnerable to real warfare: invasion by the Beast .

Syria Getting More Desperate and Violent

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

Syria's President Bashar al-Assad (Source: Agência Brasil, Wikipedia)
بشار الأسد

COGwriter

Today's news has the following:

Fox News - ‎29 January 2012
BEIRUT – The Syrian military launched an offensive to regain control of suburbs on the eastern edge of Damascus Sunday, storming neighborhoods and clashing with groups of army defectors in fierce fighting that sent residents fleeing.. .

The ten-month uprising against Assad, which began with largely peaceful demonstrations, has become increasingly militarized recently as more frustrated protesters and army defectors have taken up arms against the regime.

The assault on the suburbs seemed to be a sign of the growing presence of dissident soldiers closer to Damascus, and the regime's rising concern about the situation.

Egyptian Gazette - ‎29 January 2012

ISTANBUL – The Gulf Arab states and Turkey, which have spearheaded regional condemnation of the Syrian regime for its deadly crackdown, urged Damascus Saturday to accept an Arab League plan to stop the bloodshed “without delay”.

The Syrian government is getting more desperate and increasingly isolated on the world scene.

Something will have to change.

Notice what the Bible shows will happen to to Syria's capital Damascus:

1 An oracle concerning Damascus:
“See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins. 2. Mesta Aroera bo zapuščen in odšel za jate, ki se uležejo, brez enega bi jih bojijo. 3. utrjeno mesto bo izginila iz Efraima in kraljevsko moč od Damaska, ostanek Aram bo kot slavo Izraelci, «pravi Gospod Vsemogočni. (Isaiah 17:1-3)

3 Thus says the Lord:
“For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four,
I will not turn away its punishment…5 I will also break the gate bar of Damascus,
And cut off the inhabitant from the Valley of Aven,
And the one who holds the scepter from Beth Eden.
The people of Syria shall go captive to Kir,”
Says the Lord. (Amos 1:3, 5)

Syria's President Assad might decide his personal best option is to more closely support Iran and perhaps be involved in an invasion of Jerusalem and Israel. If so, this might be how Isaiah 17:1 is fulfilled.

And FWIW, perhaps I should mention that technically, Syria is still at war with Israel as it never did sign a peace deal with Israel. So an actual war involving Syria and Israel is quite feasible. If so, Israel may hit back so hard that it might eliminate Damascus as Isaiah 17:1 says will happen.

Much is going on in the Middle East.

As Jesus said in Mark 13:37, we all should watch.

Scientific Doomsday and Bible Prophecy

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

“Orthodox” 16th Century Representation of the “Apocalypse”
COGwriter

A reader send a link to the following today:
Scientific Doomsday: Ways the World Could Actually End
.
So, let's look at several that the article listed–they will be in bold italic type with my comments below them.
.
Asteroid Accident/Comet Collision
.
The Bible indicates that an asteroid or comet (more likely a comet from the Wormwood description in Revelation) will hit the earth and cause major damage–but not enough so the world would actually end (for details see NASA Indirectly Confirms Wormwood Prophecy ).
.
Killer Contagion
.
Jesus spoke of pestilences as part of the “beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:1-8). The Book of Revelation also discusses the fourth horseman of death, which likely includes pestilences (for details see Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse ). But this will not end the world.
.
Solar Slaughter
.
I have written about this many times and consider solar flares a likely way to fulfill Revelation 16:8-9, but there are other risks. (see also NASA Says Peak Solar Flare to be After 2012) . An item in tonight's news is also of interest:
The State Column - ‎29 January 2012
A string of massive solar storms have unleashed their fury on the Earth in the last 48 hours, just the first set of strong solar storms expected to hit our planet in the coming months.

NASA scientists report that the most solar flare — the strongest one to date this year — erupted Friday from the same active region of the sun that triggered a raging solar tempest earlier this week

NASA's Goddard Space Weather Center said the latest coronal mass ejection (CME) was moving at almost 1,553 miles per second, warning that it could cause a number of disruptions.

Solar flare-ups and other factors affecting electricity can and will cause problems, but not the end of the world.
While we are getting closer, the end is NOT yet and none of those items will actually end the earth. We seem to be in the time warned of by Jesus as the beginning of sorrows.
.
World events, however, are aligning with properly understood biblical prophecy. It is interesting that some scientists are agreeing that events consistent with end time biblical prophecy can have serious consequences.

Some articles of related interest may include the following:

Can the Great Tribulation Begin in 2012, 2013, or 2014? Can the Great Tribulation begin today? What happens before in the “beginning of sorrows”? What happens in the Great Tribulation and the Day of the Lord? Ko je prvi, ki lahko veliko stisko začeti? Kaj je Gospodov dan?

Apostle Paul Popularity

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

COGwriter

So far this month, one of the top ten most popular article at the COGwriter.com website is about the Apostle Paul. Here is how it is listed on the www.cogwriter.com home page:

The Apostle Paul He was a later apostle, but also an early Christian leader.

This particular article has not ever been particularly popular in the past, but thousands have viewed it this month.

Contrary to the assertions of many, Paul was not one who did away with biblical practices such as the Sabbath, Ten Commandments, and the Holy Days.

Actually, near the end of his life he declared:

17 And it came to pass after three days that Paul called the leaders of the Jews together. So when they had come together, he said to them: “Men and brethren, though I have done nothing against our people or the customs of our fathers, yet I was delivered as a prisoner from Jerusalem into the hands of the Romans, 18 who, when they had examined me, wanted to let me go, because there was no cause for putting me to death. 19 But when the Jews spoke against it, I was compelled to appeal to Caesar, not that I had anything of which to accuse my nation (Acts 28:17-19).

Which means he kept the Sabbath, Holy Days, and the Ten Commandments.

The Ten Commandments were alreay discussed, so let's look at the Sabbath:

Notice that the Apostle Paul was inspired to write:

Now we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said, “So I declared on oath in my anger, 'They shall never enter my rest.'” And yet his work has been finished since the creation of the world. For somewhere he has spoken about the seventh day in these words: “And on the seventh day God rested from all his work.” And again in the passage above he says, “They shall never enter my rest.” It still remains that some will enter that rest, and those who formerly had the gospel preached to them did not go in, because of their disobedience…There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God's rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience (Hebrews 4:3-6,9-11, NIV).

Acts 13:42-44 shows what Paul did,

Hence, Paul kept (after his conversion to Christianity), what are now commonly called the Jewish Holy Days. So, of course, did Jesus.

Furthermore, notice something from an old 2nd/3rd document (that was probably altered in the 4th century), titled The Life of Polycarp , specifically mentions the Passover , the Days of Unleavened Bread , and Pentecost . Notice that it shows that the Apostle Paul endorsed keeping them:

In the days of unleavened bread Paul , coming down from Galatia, arrived in Asia, considering the repose among the faithful in Smyrna to be a great refreshment in Christ Jesus after his severe toil, and intending afterwards to depart to Jerusalem. So in Smyrna he went to visit Strataeas, who had been his hearer in Pamphylia, being a son of Eunice the daughter of Lois. These are they of whom he makes mention when writing to Timothy, saying; Of the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois and in thy mother Eunice; whence we find that Strataeas was a brother of Timothy. Paul then, entering his house and gathering together the faithful there, speaks to them concerning the Passover and the Pentecost, reminding them of the New Covenant of the offering of bread and the cup; how that they ought most assuredly to celebrate it during the days of unleavened bread, but to hold fast the new mystery of the Passion and Resurrection. For here the Apostle plainly teaches that we ought neither to keep it outside the season of unleavened bread, as the heretics do, especially the Phrygians…but named the days of unleavened bread, the Passover, and the Pentecost, thus ratifying the Gospel (Pionius. Life of Polycarp, Chapter 2. Translated by JB Lightfoot, The Apostolic Fathers, vol. 3.2, 1889, pp.488-506).

Thus, the “apostle to the Gentiles” (Romans 11:13), taught Gentile Christians in Asia Minor to keep the Holy Days. Days many now consider to be Jewish and not Christian–but apparently Paul considered them important for all Christians to keep (see also 1 Corinthians 5:7-8 where he told the Gentiles in Corinth to keep them as well).

Paul also wrote:

Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ (1 Corinthians 11:1).

Jesus kept the Sabbath , Ten Commandments , and the Feasts . Do you follow the practices of Jesus and Paul?
