There are many reasons for not using the book of Jude as verification of the validity of the book Enoch. The quote that you used from Jude does not even mention the book of Enoch, nor does it imply that there are any writings by that Enoch. Jude 1:14 and 15 NKJV And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh ...

Canonization has nothing to do with whether something "is" scriptural, contextual, or whatever. Canonization is simply agreement that a book is considered "most profitable" by most of the church. Even if you convince "me," you have about 2.1 billion more people to go. Two thousand years on, it is simply too late for the 'whole church' to change it. By ...

The answer rhetorician gave is outstanding. I'd like to add one more point that scripture explicitly states about the millenial reign of Christ on earth: the earth will be at rest. Now, the implications are profound, among them rhetorician's point. Here's another implication: all of those in the second resurrection will experience a sharp contrast (to put ...

It seems clear from a reading of the entire New Testament that there is a time coming after which it will be too late to come to faith in Christ. Whether you want to place that point in time as "the rapture" or "the return of Jesus" or some other point depends, at least in part, in how you interpret the New Testament.

I have 44 pages of quotes of false prophesies by the Watchtower. As a former Witness I can confirm they are all ligit. Feel free to write me for that PDF at. ...

I think it is possibly rooted in the corresponding rise of the final antichrist at that time. In researching his attributes, you find several curiosities that have been mostly forgotten by the modern Church. Referring to him in Daniel 7:25, Daniel indicates that he will seek to adjust time or time references in some way (along with prevailing laws).

I believe something different than most, I believe the dead in Christ simply means dead to selfishness. So the dead in christ are the alive Christians on the earth. What confuses most is it says, we to shall rise, this is referring to the second coming when those that have made it through the tribulation will join those in the first coming referred to as ...

No, Satan will not receive a reprieve from God; and yes, Satan's doom is sealed irrevocably. As curiousdannii commented, Revelation 20:10 pretty much says it all: "And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever." ...

This answer also deals with Matthew 24:34, saying the same. I am writing from a mild Partial-Preterist perspective, but that should not affect the plausibility of the following, only the conclusions derived from it. One possible interpretation that is not as widely circulated as some is the possible existence of a "gap" between Mark 13:23 & 24 (and ...

Please see this FMS' answer to What are the different views regarding the order of events for end-times prophecy?
