Are all sins forgiven?
Matthew 12:31-32 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men, And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.
Mark 3:28-29 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation. Continue reading
We all know the Ten Commandments of God. And if you don’t, you should. They are as follows:
Found in Exodus 20
1) Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
2) Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. (Artwork & tattoos of Jesus, angels, devils, etc are in violation of the 2nd commandment.)
3) Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. Continue reading
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God
This is concerning the timing of Christ’s return. Paul was letting the people know that Christ’s return was not imminent. He assured them that certain events must happen before Christ returns and gathers His elect.
What must happen first? Continue reading
Thief in the Night
The thief in the night passages are being taught as proof of a pretribulation rapture. When Jesus gathers His elect secretly and quietly while the rest of the world goes through the tribulation giving them a second chance to turn to God. It is being taught that there is no need to know the signs because Jesus will return at any given moment. What do these passages really mean?
Matthew 24:43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
Luke 12:39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through. Continue reading
Much like the word “rapture”, the words “bride of Christ” are not mentioned in the bible. So where does this term come from?
Revelation 19:6-9And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
It is believed that the body of Christ, His church, is the bride, the Lamb’s wife. But is it really the body of Christ that is the bride? Continue reading
