comment how do you ask for forgiveness, or know he has forgiven you?
@Caleb/et-al Why is this a pastoral advice question? They are not the only ones who know how to ask God's forgiveness. although I have for the most part abandoned this site, I do still monitor it, and am perplexed as to why this is assigned this category. Why would a pastor be the only one who can tell someone this information?

comment What type of Sabbath rest is Hebrews 4 talking about?
@disciple Please reread the question and the referenced Scripture. The poster has already and correctly identified the future rest as eternity (Heaven) so the only unanswered part of the question is the inquiry about what rest they were not observing. That is the reasoning behind my answering only that portion of the question.

comment What did Paul mean when he called Jesus the firstborn of the dead?
It is noteworthy to remember that Jesus said that he came to fulfill the law, and to also remember that he said that all the prophets had written about him. Jesus life on earth was truly a complete reflection of Old Testament, and all that is recorded about his life is traceable back to the old testament and especially the Prophets. Just as God breathed the breath of life into man, Jesus breathed eternal life into the souls of his followers.

comment Were the similarities between the miracles of Elisha and Jesus deliberate or simply coincidental?
All of what you say is correct, however, please remember that all Jews were familiar with the Pentateuch and the Prophets. They were taught them from an early age, and they would have been apt to see those similarities. Jesus wanted the people to associate him with the prophets and even likened his death and resurrection to Jonas three days in the belly of the fish.

comment When did the “upside down cross” become a sign of anti-Christianity?
@Jesse If the Satanic cross predates the book that's okay but it was the earliest depiction of a inverted cross where it was tied to an evil, I could find at the time, and that is why I made the statement Apparently. In truth that is not a subject I have spent a lot of time contemplating or researching. My goal is to learn as much as I can about the Bible and only got into the subject researching the Apostle Peter and the other Apostles deaths.

@Jesse as I said in my answer most of it came from memory. I do not really care that you down voted my answer, but your edit does lend creditability to my first paragraph. As far as the date of the Black Sabbath being wrong on the date is my fault I am not and never have been a fan of that group, I found the cover illustrated somewhere during my studies, I do not remember where and did not make a copy of it. I will try to find it and let you know where it is located.
