Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
Paul here was writing to gentile and jewish believers, all who belonged to Christ, Abraham's seed Gal 3:29
29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise [As Isaac was].
We see also see the phrase identification " The Children of Promise" in Paul's writing in regard to the Two Israel's in Rom 9:6-8
6Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel,...
Apparently, I don't know when, Little Debbie, the once Seventh Day Adventist, has become a 5 point Calvinist!
I present you the proof........
For the record, above the title the cover states "Uncovers NIV, NKJV, KJ21, NASB Pitfalls."
Below the title the cover states "Discover Its Hidden Built-In Dictionary."
My only general comments now about the books appearance (I am a graphics professional and artistically trained) are that it is somewhat poor in design (although much better than her NABV), with lots of unrelated pictorials and with entirely too much 'white' (empty) space (in other words, it could have been a much shorter...
A textual variant, is a translators choice, of a word he uses, while translating the Bible to another language.
The Greek word.... “mayhteuw”, is found 4 times in the New Testament.
For the last 486 years, from the time the first English New Testament was published(Tyndale’s New Testament 1525-1526), this word was translated “teach”, in Matthew 28:19......
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:”
Noah Webster published his slight revision of the KJV in 1833. This is an important paragraph from his Preface.
"But in the lapse of two or three centuries,changes have taken place which,in particular passages,impair the beauty,in others,obscure the sense of the original languages. Some words have fallen into disuse;and the signification of others,in popular use,is not the same now as it was when they were introduced into the version.The effect of these changes is,that some words are not...
I like to do street evangelism & street preaching. However this is not a popular or practiced method in my church. Having done street evangelism since 2008 I can say that its not exactly the most effective method. I do not think results are up to me, as they are up to God. But then again living in the Bible Belt where there is a church on every corner, I wonder if its possible that many of my gospel tracts, gospel of John's, books, and such that I have given out to so many have been wasted...
In the other thread on Why the Lord's Table on Sunday Morning?, I succumbed to the temptation and helped derail the thread by discussing access to the Lord's Table.
I thought I had seen an earlier thread on Open or Closed Communion,but I couldn't find it, so I'm starting another thread to talk about it.
The question, I suppose, is not whether the Lord's Table should be limited. It is already limited to believers. At least I hope so.
The question is, how accessible?
A friend of mine, who is a fellow pastor, sent me one of his messages and as I was reading it this morning he made the following statement..........
“Jeremiah was Judah's last prophet before going into Babylonian Captivity.
He was called by the Lord to begin his ministry during the reign of Judah's boy
king, King Josiah. In 2 Kings 22:1-20:30 we are given the record of Josiah's reign.
Josiah's father (Amon) and grandfather (Manasseh) were evil men whose love for
sin and wickedness led...
was he the first "replacement Theologian", and those holding to that really getting it from the Roman Catholic Church then?
