DISCLOSURES - Cookies

I think this site uses cookies to analyze traffic and for ads measurement purposes. I'm not really sure, I don't do techy stuff. I built it on Google's Blogger platform, ask them. I put this here because some IDIOT BONEHEADS thought you needed new laws. Here're some links if you want more information.

DISCLOSURES

Some lawyers stay up at night trying to ruin free society and create new rules. Therefore, here are the disclosures I must have that you probably won't read.

Got LIFE?

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. Genesis 2:7
Are rocks dead? 

Consider this for a moment. A rock isn't dead, it's simply without life. It is not alive. In order for something to be dead (biologically) it must first have experienced or had the capacity to experience life. Death is not the absence of life, it is the removal of it.

Spiritually, Adam did nothing to earn life. God breathed LIFE into him. He didn't go to church, do twenty good things, or earn it in any way. He was without life, and LIFE came to him without his works involved.

How often do people say: "Well, I'm a good person..."

How does your being a good person help you get LIFE?

You see, Heaven, Hell, and Spiritual things are NOT a matter of Good vs Bad. 
And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst …

Praying for others...

And the Lord restored Job's losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. Job 42:10For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of His Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers... Romans 1:9
I prayed today, really prayed, for the first time in.... years? Maybe not years. Not sure. Everything before now, that I can recall was shouting & complaining, or some form of that. This was the first time in a long time that I prayed from a place of surrender.

I've been reading Job, off and on, for several years now. Did you ever notice, in Job 42, that it was AFTER Job prayed for his friends (not himself) that God restored Job's losses?

Interesting, eh?

So, that happened.


Men (and women), when is the last time you prayed for other people?

A Conduit of Blessing, NOT a Reservoir

I've read the book of Job more than any other book in the Bible. I identify with him in so many ways (real or imagined).
As I re-read the closing chapters this morning, I found a theme running through beginning to end, a silver thread hidden among the tapestry of his life.
Self

There are four points through which this thread pulls most vividly:

Sacrificing out of fear for his kids, at the start (inward focus, fear of loss).Self-Admiration (I'm so innocent) throughout the book.The counter offered by Elihu > Then God (don't ascribe right-ness to yourself, but to God).Sacrifice on behalf of his friends (outward focus, gain on half of others).
Sacrificing out of fear for his kids, at the start (inward focus, fear of loss).
At the start of his story, we find a man who is self-focused. You might argue that he was focused on his kids; however, he wasn't. He was focused on not losing his kids, which is a self-focus motive. He would make sacrifices from a spirit of fear (what…

The Rapture Debate

https://bible.org/article/rapture-debateIn this great article, Sid Litke shows that The Rapture and The Second Coming must be different events. There is no other form scriptural stance. He mentions the less popular view of a Mid Trib Rapture.In light of a recent video teaching I watched, I'm exploring this as another possible interpretation. Nothing in this article, linked above, would negate a Mid Trib Rapture except the concept of imminence. Believers are looking to the return of Jesus as the next event that could happen at any moment. In the event of a Mid Trib Rapture, you can literally set the calendar for the exact day off Jesus' return. This fails the imminence test.It requires further review and study, but my gut impression is to say anything other than a PreTrib Rapture fails sound scripture reading on the whole.Still studying though.Darrell
