Well Mr. Henley I think it would be best to read the context and find out "why" the elect may fall to this "great deception," if possible. Three disciples ask Jesus the following at vs3. "And as He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us when will these things be, and what will be the SIGN of your coming and ...

Quite by accident, I came upon this quote: At about the same time (c. 1190) Martin of Leon, a Roman Catholic, had reached a more surprising conclusion, he thought that if Leviathan was the Dragon, Behemoth which was depicted in parallel should represent a resurrected Jesus. The above is from "The Book of Job: When, Where and Why?", by Gérard ...

Support for a Pre-Tribulation rapture: is claimed from scriptures like: 1) 1Th 5:9 "not appointed/ordained/destined to wrath...", which is interpreted to mean "rescued from the tribulations being initiated by the seven seals, seven trumpets and seven bowls of wrath (Rev 16:1+),all presumed to occur during the "Tribulation Period", particularly, the "Great ...

The pretribulation and the advent of Our lord Jesus are two different meaning but of course related, where the first one has already been started from the time of the martyrdom of the Apostles and Christians in history up to this day. The verse that you have quoted relates to the advent or second coming of our Lord Jesus as Paul said in a “prophetic phrase” ...

In addition to the answer above, below is a bible commentary: Till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom. Some expound this, as fulfilled at his transfiguration, which follows in the next chapter. Others understand it of the glory of Christ, and of his Church, after his resurrection and ascension, when he should be owned for Redeemer of the world: ...

He was speaking literally in a way: "six days later", at the transfiguration, they did see some of the glory that Jesus would have at that time, and seeing Peter's reaction it was quite impressive. Read on in chapter 17:1-9, that's where your answer is. In verses 10-13, Jesus explains a bit more about the time they lived in at that point.

There are a few interpretations: The falling away (or rebellion) is the word apostasia (G646). Some say this apostasia, or the apostasy, is the rapture. However, there are some problems with this interpretation: literally it would mean that the rapture comes before the gathering unto Him, which doesn't make sense (since in this interpretation the gathering ...

As @curiousdanni pointed out in comments, the text here does not put forth the eternality of the Law and Prophets but rather highlights two conditions in which they may or will pass away: If the current created order passes away or if everything in them is fulfilled. It is possible that these two are to be understood as concurrent but that is not necessary....

In Romans 5:12-21 this is explained: Through the disobedience of one man, sin came into existence. Consequence was that death "ruled as king", meaning it was inevitable for all people, even for those who had not been disobedient like Adam. Death was not a consequence of the Law: it was there before the Law. The Law defined "sin", so that there were legally ...

@David ~ William Ford published his doctoral thesis as an academic book, called: "God, Moses + Pharaoh" ~ what he told us in an extramural short course was that God was reminding Moses that he was to be God's Priestly and Oracular intermediary between Moses and Himself; and also that, given that Pharaoh's whole culture was governed by many gods, and that ...

Found a useful thought on the page https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2004206#h=23:0-24:0, which notes: How was Moses made “God to Pharaoh”? Moses was given divine power and authority over Pharaoh. Hence, there was no need to be afraid of that king. Highlighted here on another page https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2002564#h=27:0-28:0 is the ...

“No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him” ‭‭John‬ ‭6:44‬ ‭ What did Jesus mean by this statement? Most basically what he meant was just what He said. Unless a person undergoes a new birth they cannot either see or enter the Kingdom of God (John 3) and that new birth is not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man ...

The Clementine Vulgate has Cum prophetia defecerit, dissipabitur populus ; qui vero custodit legem beatus est. Which the Douay translates as When prophecy shall fail, the people shall be scattered abroad: but he that keepeth the law is blessed. That's close enough to the KJV to suggest the possibility that they may have consulted the Vulgate to ...

First, let me say that this is based on my having studied the scriptures for 35 years. I think it important to remember to whom the verse is referring. Although the verse uses the term “serpent”, Lucifer is referred to as the “dragon” by John, the Revelator. In this context, John outlines how Lucifer was the “a morning star” and that through his desire ...

I believe she hid herself to ensure that she was past the stage of a possible miscarriage. The first five months of a pregnancy are unpredictable months but generally after five months the chances of a miscarriage become less.Desrine2/1/2020

I think it's best to start by eliminating some wrong answers. Jesus's healing power is not dependent upon the recipient's faith Jesus healed people who either did not know who he was (John 9) or who otherwise had no expectation of being healed (John 5), and we know that true faith is not possible without first knowing the object of your faith (Heb 11:6). ...

R. C. Sproul in his book What is Reformed Theology? says that most of the conventional labels in the TULIP rubric are poorly named, including "Irresistible Grace". He prefers the label The Spirit's Effective Call, which matches the Westminster Confession's 10th chapter. So before I get to Acts 7 and the resistible graces, I'll quickly outline what the ...

In this passage, St. Paul is cautioning against schisms among the faithful: 1 Corinthians 1:1-17 (DRB) Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no schisms among you; but that you be perfect in the same mind, and in the same judgment. 11 For it hath been signified unto me, ...

17: For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel--not with wisdom and eloquence, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power. - 1 Corinthians 1:14-17 I think the question that must be asked is, why does Paul consider the gospel more important than baptism? And why is baptism missing from the verse below as well every other ...

Even though we cannot be sure why that phrase is repeated, we can certainly deduce that it's inclusion serves to illustrate that the World was being rapidly filled. This may have also been used to contrast the large populous in contrast to there being only Noah found worthy of escaping the flood. Genesis 6:5 through 13 KJV  And GOD saw that the wickedness ...
