"And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him." (Genesis 5:24)
Some would not consider this to be an illustration of the ascension of Christ, and perhaps, rightly so. It may illustrate more rightly, the pre-trib rapture of the church. The Bible, speaking of types and shadows in the Old Testament now clearly revealed in the New, are not a few. The Bible tells us, "Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples (Gr. tupos): and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come." (1 Corinthians 10:11) Hebrews 11:5 states concerning Enoch, "By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God." As for Christ, we are told, "Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him." (Romans 6:9) Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead. Death is no longer able to touch Him, as He is "alive for evermore" (Revelaiton 1:18). And after He was seen of many witnesses we are told He was "taken up ... into heaven" (Acts 1:11). So we believe that the arguement can be made, that, if Enoch illustrates the pre-trib rapture of the siants, the only reason they are able to be raptured, is that Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose again, and "ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things" (Ephesians 4:10). Jesus said, "because I live, ye shall live also" (John 14:9). "In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him." (1 John 4:9). We only live because Christ lives. He is the first cause of all things, and so too, the ressurection from the dead, as He said, "I am the ressurection, and the life" (John 11:12), and our ascension into heaven, for He "ascended on high [and] led captivity captive" (Psalm 68:18).
"So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God." (Mark 16:19)
"And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne." (Revelation 12:5)
"And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant." (Genesis 9:26-27)
It is clear that Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Son of God, was born of the line of Shem. The question is whether or not this was foretold in Genesis 9:26-27. We are told that "he shall dwell in the tents of Shem". Does the "he" refer to God or Japheth? It is noted that God's spiritual blessings would fall primarily on Shem whose God is Jehovah. And if the "he" be Japheth, from whom the Gentiles descended, I think that this would imply that Japheth would come to share in the spiritual blessings and fellowship of Shem. This would be totally in agreement with the Scriptures for the Gentiles did recieve light and blessings through the descendant of Shem, and the promised Seed, namely Jesus Christ. Nevertheless, if the "he" be God, and it be He who would shine through and tabernacle with Shem, even until the fulness of time when God sent forth His Son, the true Light of the world, when the Word became flesh and dwelt (tabenacled) among us, this also would be in agreement with the Scripture.
"And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli... Which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad, which was the son of Shem..." (Luke 3:23-36)
"The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be." (Genesis 49:10)
The Seed was first mentioned in Genesis 3:15, then confirmed to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. Now it is confirmed to Judah. The leadership, according to Jacob, was to go to Judah, but this did not happen for over six hundred years. Moses came from Levi, Joshua from Ephraim, Gideon from Manasseh, Samson from Dan, Samuel from Ephraim and Saul from Benjamin. But when David finally became king, Judah became the dominant tribe from that time on. Judah held the sceptre and did not relinquish it until after Shiloh came.
There were many prophecies in the OT pertaining to the coming Christ. "there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel... Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion" (Numbers 24:17, 19) and again, "But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting." (Micah 5:2) This led the wise men of the east to come to Jerusalem saying, "Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him." (Matthew 2:2) From this they knew that out of Bethlehem, from the tribe of Judah, "shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel." (v. 6)
In that day, genealogical records were readily available in the Temple. But after the Messiah died for our sins and rose again from the dead for our justification, in AD 70, the temple was destroyed with all its genealogical records. The Jews were then scattered to the nations of the world, so we could truly say from that time, the Sceptre departed from Judah, for with no certainty can any Jew prove he is from the tribe of Judah. So with this certainty, we knew that Shiloh has come, for He is the "Lion of the tribe of Judah".
"And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn." (Luke 2:1-7)
"But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law" (Galatians 4:4).
"But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying, Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered." (Jeremiah 11:19)
Not many commentators apply this verse in Jeremiah to Christ. Most apply it to Jeremiah, and indeed the people of apostate Israel and Judah at that time were speaking that to him. Nevertheless, what many have forgotten, is that many of the prophets, in one form or another of their ministry, exemplified in his own person some one feature or more in the manifold attributes and sufferings of the Messiah to come, and so that which applied to them, was in fact being spoken also of Christ.
And this is not hard to discern as this was also clearly spoken of the Messiah in Isaiah 53, that He "was cut off out of the land of the living", and ever so clearly in Daniel 9:27, that at the appointed time "shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself", no, not for Himself, but "for the transgression of my people was he stricken" (Isaiah 53:8).
Furthermore, this being conspired in the minds of the detractors, "that his name be no more remembered", would certainly remind us of Psalm 83, where it is written, "Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance." Here speaking of Israel, but once again, typified as Christ (Ex. 4:22, Hosea 11:1, Mt. 2:15) whom is identified as Israel, my firstborn Son whom He called out of Egypt, whom through the loins of Israel He was to come as the promised Seed of Abraham.
And Christ, foreknowing all things prophesied of this also saying, "the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again" (Mark 8:31). And again, "they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again." (Mark 10:34) And this being in their mind, we are told, "the Jews sought to kill him" (John 7:1), the Prince of life. And for what purpose? Even the ignorant Caiaphas prophesied that, "it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people" (John 11:50). And so, Christ died for our sins, He was buried, and rose again from the dead according to the Scriptures. Hallelujah!
There are so many riches and treasures and wonders hidden in the Scriptures that they are just too wonderful for me.
"...the Jews sought to kill him." (John 7:1)
"...come, let us kill him..." (Matthew 21:38)

Hello, Noel.

Thank you for your logical, Scriptural and heartfelt attempts to bring your correspondent Paul to Jesus Christ, the world's one and only Savior, and the one true Messiah that Jews like Paul not only rejected when Jesus of Nazareth walked the earth, but who reject Him just as violently today, two thousand years later.

The correspondent Paul's lack of goodwill in this exchange is clearly apparent in his inability to hear the apostle Paul, his namesake. For, of course, the apostle Paul knows that all men, apart from Jesus, have lied. So even when the apostle is being wholeheartedly honest, in admitting he -- like all of us -- had lied before, your correspondent Paul inverts the apostle's statement of humility and shoves it back into his face.

The synagogue of Satan (Revelation 2:9; 3:9 and John 8:37-44) has ALWAYS done this: totally inverting the truth, particularly and most meanspiritedly, as a means to bear false witness against innocent men (e.g., the prophets, Jesus Christ, Stephen, James, Peter, Paul) as a way to fulfill their own dark lusts.

I'll add -- though I know that no such truth will be received by your correspondent Paul -- that we can know that all Scripture is true, as it is the, literal, Word of God. And God as you've correctly pointed out, Noel, cannot lie. So if the correspondent Paul possessed an honest heart, and really cared for the truth, he could, in fact, rest assured in the promise made by God to perfectly preserve his Word forever, and that it, just like His Son, the literal Word, is, indeed, the whole unfettered Truth.

There are no lies in the (King James) Bible, and no inconsistencies. Only misunderstandings in the minds of men.

Judaism, on the other hand, is a wholly illegitimate lie, a completely false religion. It is, in fact, satanic. Just like Islam.

There is only one so-called Abrahamic religion, and that is true Bible-believing Christianity. The whole Judeo-Christian notion is an absurd oxymoron, the Frankenstein-like creation of Zionism.

The synagogue of Satan of Christ's day weren't following the one true religion of their fathers (e.g., Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David, the prophets) anymore than the synagogue of Satan follows the one true religion today.

We Bible-believing Christians are, however, following the same religion as the apostles. We -- all, that is, who believe on Jesus Christ, the Son of God, for their salvation -- are the true Jews (whether Jew or Greek), the true Israel (not the Christ-hating and murderous nation-state of Israel), and joint-heirs, with Christ, of the promise given by God to Abraham.

We are the children of Abraham, and the children of God. Not the physically descended Jews who reject Jesus Christ as THE Messiah, as we can see in Romans 2:28-29.

The wonderful news is that God's mercy is great, and His concern is not who is / who isn't of the PHYSICAL seed of Abraham or David, as we can see by way of the apostle Paul's above verses, as well as from Galatians 3:26-29, likewise from Paul.

That is, we -- all who are in Christ, irrespective of anything else -- are heirs to the original promise which was given to Abraham when his faith was counted to him for righteousness, even when he was in uncircumcision:

Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham who is the father of us all (Romans 4:16)

All who are saved through faith in Jesus Christ are adopted as the spiritual seed of Abraham and, thus, of Christ. All who are in Christ are, thereby, God's children. Again, the true Jews, the true Israel. And we can see this, again, throughout both the Old and New Testaments.

For all (correspondent) Paul's outward devotion to the Tanakh, Judaism, in fact, perverts the Old Testament by turning it upside down by way of the Talmud, an encyclopedia of blasphemous, satanic filth, which says, amongst other such evils, that Jesus Christ is in hell, boiling in excrement!

In closing, I'll remind you, Noel, that in Paul's epistle to Titus, we are told:

3:10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject
3:11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.

The correspondent Paul has been respectfully and good-heartedly admonished many times over. As the apostle Paul shows us, above, the correspondent Paul is, indeed, subverted, remains a sinner, and is condemned of himself.

The correspondent Paul's blood is upon his own head, just as his namesake says in Acts 18:6:

And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto them, Your blood be upon your own heads I am clean: from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles.

God bless.

It is just like the prophet Isaiah has spoken long ago (Isaiah 6:9-14), the nation Israel, that is the Jews or the twelve tribes of Israel would not hear or see until they be scattered and brought back into the land promised to the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. But they must first go through the "Time of Jacob's Trouble" (Jeremiah 30:1-24) and travail in pain before they shall be reborn. But until then, as the apostle Paul said, "For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins." (Romans 11:25-27)

Until then we can only pray like the apostle Paul, "Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God." (Romans 10:1-3)

I have discussed this in more detail on another article here: http://www.accordingtothescriptures.org/israel/replacement.html

Sean, I thought I should also make mention, that it almost appears that you are holding to the grievous error (replacement theology) that states that the "church" has replaced Israel and that the Church, or "Christians" are now the true "Jews". At least that is what you appear to be implying when you quote Romans 2:28-29. You state, "All who are saved through faith in Jesus Christ are... the true Jews, the true Israel."

If this is the case, you must understand, that in Romans chapter 2:17-29, Paul is addressing real Jews, that is, the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and He uses circumcision to teach them who is really a true Jew. Circumcision of the foreskin was just a badge. Circumcision could no more save an individual than that of the rite of Christian baptism. The nation Israel, was taught in the Mosaic Law, "Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiffnecked." (Deuteronomy 10:16) This would be akin to saying, "Ye must be born again" (John 3:3-7; 1 Peter 1:23-25).

The Jews of Paul's day may have been very zealous of the Law (like he once was), they may have been circumcised, but they had broken the Law and were lost and under the just condemnation of a holy God. Paul concludes his argument by saying "For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God." (Romans 2:28-29) What he is teaching here, is not that the church has replaced Israel and that the church now consists of the true Jews, not at all! What he is telling the children of Israel, is that those who really qualified as Jews were those who had the foreskins of their heart circumcised, those who had been given a new heart by God when they were born again.

And today, it is no different. Many say they are Christian (over a billion) and have been baptized. Are they all members of Christ's Body the church? Not at all! Unless you are born again you are not saved! You may call yourself a Christian, you may have been baptized, but you are lost apart from the new birth in Christ Jesus.

Now this brings us to another Scripture you have brought up where Jesus said that those who "say they are Jews, and are not" are in fact "the synagogue of Satan" (Revelation 2:9; 3:9). You see, there are many serious consequences to the growing delusion that the church is Israel. This is what Replacement Theology has done, they "say they are Jews, and are not". This anti-Semitic lie has been perpetuated for a long time and if any of you seem to be falling for it please read the article mentioned in my previous comment where it shows who is really behind this lie.

If this is not what you are implying Sean, please correct me.

Hello, Noel.

With all due respect, your categorical distinctions are irrelevant, because:

1) Paul is addressing both Jews and non-Jews in his epistle to the Romans, as the church at Rome included both.

2) In Christ, there is neither Jew nor Greek (that is, non-Jew), as the below verses make indisputably clear:

"For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him." (Romans 10:12)

"There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus." (Galatians 3:28)

"Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all." (Colossians 3:11)

Although our fellow comment readers are not privy to this, your and my prior email correspondence would inform them that you believe in a pre-tribulation rapture. As I've said within our email correspondence, exactly no one would ever come to a dispensationalist reading of the real (King James) Bible in simply reading and studying the true word of God. One must be "taught" the dispensationalist doctrinal worldview, much as Straussian philosophers would say that you cannot possibly understand Plato's Republic without being in possession of their magical interpretive keys. Or, as the blasphemous Pharisees of Jesus' day, as well as our own, would say, you cannot possibly understand the Torah (or Tanakh in total) without the oral (esoteric) "teachings" which were given by God to Moses, whereas the (exoteric) contents of the Torah (or Tanakh) were meant for the masses; in other words, these antichrists would have us believe that only rabbinical "authorities" are deemed capable of correctly interpreting the Torah (or Tanakh) via the filthy blasphemies of the Talmud.

Your pre-tribulation, dispensationalist doctrine (truly, dogma) skews your reading of the Bible, as all your interpretations avail themselves only through the prism of your predecessors having decided, on behalf of the Zionist agenda, to slice and dice the Bible into un-Biblical dispensations or ages.

You also said in your correspondence that you've never read C.I. Scofield's Reference Bible nor any Bible which contains his notes, whether explicit as margin notes or implicit as have been deceptively (satanically) woven into the modern "bible" perversions, leaving the reader with no way to know that Scofield's countless heresies had, as if by Jew magic, become actual Scripture.

You, therefore, cannot know just how skewed are your Biblical interpretations until such time as you inquire sufficiently into Scofield such that you understand, yourself, whence your own opinions have their origins.

Your pre-tribulation, dispensationalist dogma also rears its head in that you (simply because your predecessors before you) conflate(d) wrath with tribulation. They, in fact, stand wholly apart. You're quite right that we who are in Christ, by faith, are not appointed to wrath (1 Thessalonians 5:9). But we are very much appointed to tribulation, as is made clear throughout both the Old (by way of example, cf, David, the prophets, et al.) and the New Testaments (cf, Matthew Ch. 24, Mark Ch. 13, Ch. Luke 21, John 16:33, Acts 14:2, Romans 5:3, 8:35, 12:12, 2 Corinthians 7:4, 1 Thessalonians 3:4, 2 Thessalonians 1:4-6, Revelation 1:9, 2:9-10, and, importantly, Revelation 7:14).

In closing, however -- and despite my arguments in response to your own -- it is not given to you nor me to know the day nor hour that Jesus Christ will come in the clouds. That said, those of us who understand that Christians will, indeed, be put through not only tribulation but great tribulation (again, cf, Revelation 7:14) will be far better prepared and shored up for the tribulation to come, as Christ intends us to be; thus the revelation given to John for this very purpose. But those of you who expect to be raptured without tribulation, when it comes, will think, what the heck?!?, why am I/we still here? Why has Jesus not come as He promised? And many will be at risk of losing their faith at the very time when such faith is needed most.

"Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another." (Matthew 24:9-10)

And, preemptively, Noel: No, Matthew, nor Romans, nor any other book in the Bible is addressed solely to the Jews. That's a wholly un-Biblical dispensationalist (that is, antichrist Zionist agenda) worldview. It is, in fact, heresy, as it teaches another gospel (cf, Galatians 1:7-10).

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works." (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Romans 2:28-29 does not refer to the Church. In the context Paul is specifically addressing the Jew, and not a Jew which is a member of Christ's body. Go back and read from Romans 2:17 to the end of the chapter. The Jew which Paul by example props up on the podium, a Nicodemus of sorts, may have a modicum of righteousness, can have his boast in the Law, he can be circumcised, but in effect, will not result in the new birth. If he is not born again, if he does not have his heart circumcised, he is not really a Jew as God intended him to be.

The heart is where God looks (1 Samuel 16:7), so it matters not so much the outward manifestation, name, nation, religion, cuttings of the foreskin, etc, but a new heart which God can create, which before was darkened and hard and impenitent, and so a man remains when he resists the Spirit of God (Acts 7:51).

The argument Paul puts forth was nothing new to the Jew, as it was taught to them in the Law and the Psalms and the Prophets (Deuteronomy 10:16; 30:6, Psalm 51:10, Jeremiah 4:4, Ezekiel 18:31 etc.). In fact Jesus rebuked Nicodemus for not knowing these things (John 3:7-10).

Paul in this portion (Romans 2:17-29) reaches out to the religious Jew and from his own Scriptures brings to mind who is a true Jew. In Christ there is neither Jew nor Gentile, and although you quote these verses, seem to be oblivious to it as in the next breath you spin it around and say you are "the true Jews, the true Israel".

I am afraid the Scriptures do not teach that, this is just another delusion of the likes of Steven Anderson and his followers. You mention my "predecessors", my predecessors were the Roman Catholic church, of which I was a member for 30 years, whom hold to this same "Replacement Theology" that Anderson follows. This is where your roots go back to, but I have left these lies decades ago.

The Scriptures are very clear, God is not done with Israel! As sure as Gentiles continue to exist outside the church today, so does Israel (1 Corinthians 10:32), and all of God's promises and future plans will come to pass because God has spoken it! "...though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee ... He that scattered Israel will gather him ... they shall come and sing in the height of Zion ... they shall not sorrow any more at all" (Jeremiah 30:10-11; 31:3-14; etc.). "And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God." (Amos 9:14-15)

As to the rapture taking place prior to the Day of the Lord, we have a whole article that deals with this here: http://www.accordingtothescriptures.org/prophecy/rapture.html

I would also recommend reading this brief article which I just wrote with you in mind: http://www.accordingtothescriptures.org/israel/replacement.html

Most people like Anderson are confused about the rapture because they have been duped into thinking that the church is now Israel and that believers are now "spiritual" Jews, and that Matthew 24 is speaking strictly to the church (elect), in particular Matthew 24:29-31. His video, whose title is taken from that Scripture, is just a lot of hot air without knowledge.

In the world we shall have tribulation (John 16:33) and those who have believed shall suffer for His sake (Philippians 1:29), but the Church is not "appointed unto wrath", which will be poured out during the Day of the Lord (Isaiah 13:6-13, Zephaniah 1:14-18, Luke 21:23, Romans 2:5, 1 Thessalonians 1:10; 5:9, Revelation 6:14-17; 11:18, etc.), at which time God will turn once again to deal with the Jews and the Gentile nations of the world during Daniel's Seventieth Week, that is, the last seven years determined on Daniel's people (Jews, Israel) and Jerusalem (Daniel 9:24-27). Much more could be said, but I have addressed these in more detail in the two above articles.

Noel, I'm not going to waste my time writing yet again to someone who, ultimately, is only interested in having a conversation with himself. You've run roughshod over my carefully written response, above, have repeated your own preconceived notions concerning what you think my views are, have responded to little that I actually wrote, and, once again, show little regard for honest inquiry. I'll let my posts here stand, to be considered by any and all careful readers -- and seekers after Scriptural truth -- who visit this web page.

Hi all,
Just read the list and it is interesting to read it. I think some of the items in the list are a bit stretched to be prophecies. I would not use them all to convince people.
The only thing that will convince people is prove from God. If something is told to you and it happens in your own life, you know it is true, right... (Deut 18:22 how to recognise a prophet).
I saw also the conversations written in all the comments. The Bible is written by men who were inspired by the Holy Spirit. Men are filled with sin. The Holy Spirit is clean and perfect.
Jesus was acknowledged by many Pharisees as a prophet and even as the Son of God and thus the prophesied Messiah. He was recognised by all the wonders and miracles he performed.
Men will be convinced by God Himself. I was only convinced after receiving prove from God Himself.
Jesus told that the only way to the Kingdom of Heaven is to be born again of water and Spirit. Jesus predicted that the ones who believes will speak in tongues. The disciples of Jesus were ordered by Him to stay in Jerusalem to pray for the Holy Spirit. When they received they spoke in other tongues (Acts 2:1-4). This repeated several times after that (Acts 10:44-49, Acts 19:1-6). The speaking in tongues was a sign/prove of receiving the Holy Spirit.
When I asked God the Holy Spirit, as I was encouraged to do by men, I received and bursted out speaking in tongues. Only than I started to believe.
So let us talk about the Spirit of God, the Spirit used by God to create everything.
Only after receiving, men can believe. Just as His disciples only could.
It only needs humbleness and uprightness to ask God His Spirit. He can convince of the truth.
Want to hear more, let me know

Rene, The Scriptures tell us that the characteristic of the latter times would be false prophets and teachers and apostasy (Matthew 24:11, 24; 2 Peter 2:1-2; 1 John 4:1; 1 Timothy 4:1). These would be even able to give you a sign and it will come to pass (Deuteronomy 13:1-2) so is not a definition of truth. John says we are to "try the spirits". How are we to do this? Well, Jesus said, "the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit" (John 6:63). We are to test every teaching by the Word of God (Isaiah 8:19-20 how to recognize a false prophet).

You must remember that Jesus said, "An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign" (Matthew 12:39), and that Satan roams about this earth as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour, and that the antichrist shall come, "after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie" (2 Thessalonians 2:9-11).

Chasing after this signs and wonders movement is sure to lead you down the path of delusion and away from the truth of the Scriptures. Think of the children of Israel who witnessed the mighty hand of God for 40 years in the wilderness after they were delivered from Egypt. All their carcasses fell in the wilderness because of unbelief (Hebrews 3:8-9, 17-19). The signs and wonders and miracles did nothing for their faith.

Now it is true that you must be born again or one cannot even see the kingdom of God (John 3:5), but the new birth comes by faith (Ephesians 2:8-9) when one believes the gospel (John 3:14-16; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4) and receives Jesus Christ as their Saviour from sin (John 1:11-13).

We are "begotten again" by faith in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead (1 Peter 1:3), which faith comes by hearing the gospel and believing (Romans 10:15-17; 1 Peter 1:23-25).

I can see that you are entangled in the errors of the Charismatic movement. We have many articles that deal with that on our home page under the menu heading "Charismatic Movement", which deals with "Spirit Baptism", "Tongues", "Signs and Wonders", "Pentecostalism", etc.

Now, first of all, no one is ever saved by water baptism. That is a gross error and false teaching of the cults. Water can never wash away sins, only the blood of Jesus Christ can do that, the blood of the Lamb who was without spot or blemish. If you believe that water baptism is necessary for salvation you are lost. Believers are commanded to be baptised along with hundred's of other instructions to do or do not, but any of these commandments you obey have no merit whatsoever for salvation. Salvation is based solely on the merits of Christ, "Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father" (Galatians 1:4) To add anything to Christ and his sacrificial death for our sin and His resurrection for our justification, is to pervert the gospel which is heresy (Galatians 1:6-8)

As for the "Tongues movement", the apostle Paul said that "tongues, they shall cease" (1 Corinthians 13:8) along with other of the revelatory gifts of the first century, "when that which is perfect is come" (1 Corinthians 13:10), which from the context as well as the rest of the Scriptures, is understood to be with the completion of the Bible.

Furthermore, in the first century, "tongues" was a known language used to communicate. None of the "peeps and mutters" of the Charismatic movement today resembles that. In short, the gift of tongues in the first century (which only select individuals received 1 Corinthians 12:30) was a sign to the Jews (1 Corinthians 1:22) that God was moving on with His program to be a light to the Gentiles as is evidenced by Peters experience with the house of Cornelius. Peter being a devout Jew, along with other of the apostles, needed that miraculous sign to convince him that salvation was come to the Gentiles also (Acts 11:14-18). The notion that "speaking in tongues" is a "sign" of the baptism of the Holy Spirit is a false teaching. For a more detailed study on this check out the links that were mentioned on the home page, or you can comment here if you wish.

Noel, your above response to Rene is beautifully well said. You hit upon the key relevant truths that I also had in mind. It is unmistakably clear in the (King James) Bible that speaking tongues was speaking foreign languages which were not previously known by the disciples, as a miraculous means to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with those of foreign lands who were, then, present in Jerusalem. Pentecostalism is just one more of countless apostate "Christian" movements that are of the devil. Pentecostalism's gross distortion of Scripture -- as, for example, speaking in tongues (as gibberish) and the literal handling of poisonous snakes -- demonstrates this beyond a shadow of a doubt.

I understand your issue with Paul admitting that he is a liar. My name is Dave and so am I, so are all of you. The prerequisite for being called a liar is to have been/told lies or untruths. Everyone of us here have lied at least once, been deceptive, or untruthful in our lives and are by definition liars. Does the fact that we are all liars change any bit of what is true, no. Should we tease this out and throw out all writings that were written by people across the board because we can state with great certainty that all people are by nature liars. For that matter why should I believe anything that you say. Paul admitted that he has lied, perhaps we should be willing to do the same.

Noel,
Why should I accept Philippians 2:5-11 I won't accept it for the fact that is was written by a lair. Paul admits to telling lies in Romans 3:7. I think we can both agree that a lie is a lie, no matter the reason for it.

Paul, Paul, "why persecutest thou me? ... I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks." (Acts 9:4-5)

The apostle Paul is not saying he has lied concerning his epistles, for he went on to say, "I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost" (Romans 9:1). Not only to the Romans but also the Corinthians and Galatians, "The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not." (2 Corinthians 11:31) "Now the things which I write unto you, behold, before God, I lie not." (Galatians 1:20) And also to Timothy, "Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity." (1 Timothy 2:7)

Let it be observed, that the apostle is not speaking of himself in Romans 3:7, nor of his lie of unbelief, in his state of unregeneracy, but in the person of a sinful man, "for every man is a liar", (Romans 3:4), as he says, "I speak as a man", (Romans 3:5) representing a wicked man, who from what was said before, might see this as the sense of it, that the truth of God is illustrated by the lies of men.

Understand that the Scriptures clearly imply that all are under sin, in fact the prophet Isaiah even says, "But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away." (Isaiah 64:6) And again, "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way" (Isaiah 53:6) Furthermore, the Scriptures explain in very clear terms our dire state in the eyes of the Holy One of Israel, "Cursed be he that confirmeth not all the words of this law to do them..." (Deuteronomy 27:26).

Are you the epitome of truth Paul? Have you ever told a lie, or "untruth"? Have you ever sinned? The Scriptures are clear, "If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us." (1 John 1:10)

But your position makes you worse than a liar. "If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." (1 John 5:9-12)

Furthermore, "Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son." (1 John 2:22) "...and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." (Revelation 21:8)

Tell me Paul, what will you do to be saved?
