I think that one of the least understood and taught doctrines is the providence of God. I want to explore how that works in Bible translation efforts, using my own experience in translating the Bible into Greek for illustration.
Providence differs from the miraculous in that it is a process, whereas a miracle is an event. As I have said before on the BB, a miracle is instantaneous. Providence, however, may take a great deal of time, such as when God used Alexander te Great to spread the...
Can one be saved when believing the gospel even if they don't hear a Bible verse?
I wrote a piece which I wish I could call a homily, sharing the gospel with certain particulars, and not quoting the Bible once.
If those who read it do not hear a Bible verse, will they remain being lost?
It's been a hard day. Mama passed at 5:00 this morning.
She died sleeping peacefully. I praise God for his mercies. Mama is with Christ and my father who died suddenely three years ago.
I am more exhausted than anyone could know. I thank you for the prayers you gave.
When are the Vessels of Mercy made so ?
21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:
23 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,
Here a verse in Acts that signifies how Gentile believers attained eternal life.
Is there any other way then that presented?

When the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and honored the word of the Lord; and all who were appointed for eternal life...
Found this on FB:
Why does it seem like people are using this COVID 19 pandemic as an excuse to not attend Church.
And here is a response
They SHOULD have been getting all of those thing. Many weren't. Much of the church is not what it's supposed to be.
Too few churches...
Well… My web site at YouTube.com/rockytopva has went over 3 million views:
I at first was posting TV ministers until they filed copyright infringement against me and I almost took it down. One day I was laying on my bed and I heard a voice speak to me saying, “Upload more RW Schambach.” I did just that and it went well. I find the more one does to encourage faith the better a video does.
Here's the Hebrew:
Here is the translation of it in the 1599 Geneva:
" His beauty shall be like his firstborn bullock, and his horns as the horns of an unicorn: with them he shall smite the people together, even the ends of the world: these are also the ten thousands of Ephraim, and these are the thousands of Manasseh."
and here it is in the AV:
" His glory is like the firstling of his bullock, and his...

There were changes that occurred as the church progressed. I believe the Lord Jesus attempted the final word on such changes.
Ephesus - Messianic - Paul chastises Peter for not eating with the Gentiles in Galatian 2
Smyrna - Martyr - Foxes book of Martyrs has the persecutions as ten
Pergamos - Orthodoxy formed in this time... Pergos is a tower... Needed in the dark ages
Thyatira - Catholicism formed in this time - The spirit of Jezebel is to control and to dominate.
Sardis - Protestantism...
