Double Election, God directly causes those to to Heaven/Hell by divine decree?
A recent discussion involving the terms "sacred" and "Scripture" led me take a look at the Bibles on my shelves. I have 32 Bibles of various translations. Of those 32, 19 Bibles have "Holy Bible" on the spine or front of the Bible cover. That is 59%. Most of my study Bibles do not have "Holy Bible" on the spine or cover. I also noticed that I have "Holy Bible" on the spines or front covers of the following versions: KJV, NIV 1984, TNIV, NRSV, GNT, and NLT. There are several modern...
In the thread about "Reverend" DHK said
"Just out of curiosity, if you are trying to raise your children to respect their elders and one or two of the middle-age women refuse to be called by Mrs. or Miss, but still want to be called by their first name--even by your toddlers, and pre-teens what do you do?

Futurists look at this verse and believe that Christ will roll back the skies and fly down from heaven and every person will see him with their own eyes. To them it is assurance to hold on to that Christ will return in a literal, physical body to take the Saints home or rescue...
Please consider the following scripture:
(Psa 111:9) He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.
The word reverend here clearly refers to the Lord.
Should we use the word reverend when referring to a minister?
1Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?
2For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4Surely he hath borne our griefs, and...
