TRUTH Of The Sons Of GOD. "Sons of GOD" Let us begin by quoting the two passages in Genesis 6 concerning the "Sons of GOD": "That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. " [Genesis 6:2] "There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which [were] of old, men of renown. " [Genesis 6:4] So, the question that is commonly asked by many [Christians and non-Christians alike]: "Who are the "Sons of GOD" of Genesis 6:2,4? " This is a rather rash conclusion, without a much further and deeper consideration of the texts themselves, and for those who already hold that view, please allow for some time to cover the texts most thoroughly.

As will be revealed, it is quite unnecessary and extremely destructive to the Word of God to force those texts to say that which they do not say. ... " ... " ... " ... " … In the Chronicles: ... The Root Lies Of Satan.

Leprosy meant isolation from loved ones and a slow, wretched death. A Hebrew slave girl who worked in Naaman's house said that if her master would only go to the prophet Elisha in Israel, he would heal Naaman of his leprosy. Willing to grasp at any thread of hope, Naaman made the long trip to Israel. With him was a small band of personal bodyguards and a king's ransom to pay for this miracle of healing.

When Naaman finally stood before the humble house of the prophet, Elisha would not come out. 1. Matthew 3:1, 5, 6. Answer : ____________________ NOTE: The Gospel stories begin and end with the subject of baptism. 2. Acts 22:16. NOTE: The Bible ordinance of baptism symbolizes the washing away of sin from a person's life, as well as the new birth. 3. Ephesians 4:5. 4.

Do you live in constant regret for your past mistakes?

Have you ever wished you could take a bath and come out clean inside and out? Then we have great news for you... you can! God has a plan that can totally wash all your sins away and supercharge your character - preposterous? Not at all! Christ says, "We are buried with him by baptism" (Romans 6:4). When you accept Christ, the old life dies and the Lord promises to forget all our sins!

This verse makes it clear that baptism is necessary for salvation. 1. "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. " Answer: Yes, indeed! Circumstances made it a human impossibility for the thief on the cross to be baptized. 2. "For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust. " Answer: Neither did he restore what he had stolen, as the Lord specifically directs in Ezekiel 33:15.

Only ONE method of baptism is biblical, not 14. Baptism - Is it Really Necessary? Introduction Suppose you could survey the people who live in the hundred homes nearest to your own house on the subject of Christian baptism. What kind of answer would you get in response to this question: “How should a person be baptized in order to meet the Bible requirements of salvation?” It is likely that you would get a dozen different answers, and possibly even a hundred. Some would say that they don’t believe it is necessary to be baptized at all to be saved. Others would answer that true baptism is to go forward three times completely under the water. One man in Hollywood, California, insisted on being immersed in a huge tank full of rose petals. In spite of all claims to the contrary, it is obvious that all of these people had made a very shallow study of the Word of God concerning this subject. Two Requirements for Heaven We first turn to the teaching of the Master Himself as He defined the terms for entrance into His Kingdom.

How Many Modes of Baptism? Is Rebaptism Ever Right? Worldwide Embezzlement Scandal. Thieves in the Church. Introduction Do you know about the sin nobody admits? It's a sin we're afraid to mention. We must be afraid to mention it, because nobody ever mentions it about himself, anyway. Now people have confessed to me that they've committed some terrible, dark sins. I can recall people who have admitted being drunkards, who confessed to stealing, breaking up another's home, murder, taking the Lord's name in vain, trifling on the marriage partner, Sabbath breaking - all the rest - but as far as I can remember in all my time in the ministry, nobody has ever admitted to me that he was guilty of the sin we're going to talk about now.

The Lord Jesus Himself solemnly warned us of this sin in Luke 12:15: "And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a men's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. " People just simply don't say "Well, I'm a covetous person. God Called a Man a "Fool" Now, notice something. This is a very solemn story.

Diagram.gif (GIF Image, 800x600 pixels) Prophetic Chart. Mainly two divergent views of how to interprete critical Bible prophecies are being taught among the numerous Christian churches. These views are the ... Preterists (main stream Protestant churches), and the Futurist views (some Catholics). The third view, the Historicist View is mainly taught only by SdAs Which view should be retained?

The following summary explains why which method of interpretation fits all the data best. Jesus endorsed the `year for a day' principle: "... Four Significant Events are Located by this Great Prophetic Period: (1) The first advent of Christ, (2) the crucifixion, (3) the rejection of the Jewish people as a nation, (4) the beginning of the work of the final judgment to get God's people (His spiritual Israel) ready "to meet Thy God.

Yeardayprinciple.pdf (application/pdf Object) Feast Days and Sabbaths. How many commandments are contained in the Ten Commandments? Does that sound like a foolish question? Then consider the fact that thousands of religious people would give an answer like “94” or “110.” You see, there is a strange belief on the part of many that the great God-written law of the Ten Commandments was actually a part of the ceremonial law of Moses which contained scores of specific regulations. They do not see the decalogue as being distinct and totally unique because of its divine authorship. Neither do they see the clear limitation which the Bible sets for this moral code by calling it the TEN Commandments.

It seems quite obvious that one would effectively do away with the “Ten Commandments” by mingling them with ninety or a hundred others and calling them “ordinances” instead of commandments. Is there proof positive in the Scriptures that there was no such blending of the ceremonial and moral law into one? At this point we can note several distinctions in the two laws.

What are some of the arguments for observing Old Testament feast days in modern times? How Should We Address God (the Claims of the Sacred Name Movement)?

Why these pages have been written! Some members of many Protestant churches are teaching that it is necessary for Christians to observe Israelite festivals. Some Adventists are arguing that an outright rejection by the Seventh-day Adventist Church of Old Testament Feast Days is deliberate insubordination to God’s will that, alongside other serous compromises of the Church, have brought down upon contemporary Adventism God’s frown and disfavor. Even more specifically, some say that receiving the “seal of God” and being among the “144,000” depends on observing the Feast Days that Jesus observed.

The Millennium of Peace. Final Events of Bible Prophecy. Is Heaven for Real? What is it like? Revelation's Rapture. The Secret Rapture. Why Would Jesus Promise? There is a theological question that has disturbed millions of Christians and has lent untold doctrinal confusion to the modem religious world. That question revolves around the manner of Christ's coming back to this earth at the end of the world. Multitudes have been led to believe that Christ will return secretly. What about the so-called secret rapture? A large number of Christians have been exposed to this "dispensationalist" or "futurist" interpretation of prophecy and have been hopelessly confused. According to this view, the coming of Jesus will be in two separate events. But the truth is that the Bible nowhere speaks of these two separate comings of Jesus.

Now here is what we find in the Scriptures: Christ's coming, the resurrection, and catching up of the saints to meet Jesus in the air, all take place at the same time, at the end of the world. Will It Be Secret? Please keep in mind that Jesus called this resurrection the "last day. " Anything But Secret. God's Warning In the early 1500s, the Aztec empire was one of the most powerful and sophisticated civilizations in the western hemisphere. However, within one year's time this mighty nation of over 2 million people was conquered and enslaved by just 600 men.

How did it happen? The Aztecs had a prophecy about Quetzalcoatl (kèt-säl´ko-ä-tal), a legendary feathered god-king who was light-skinned and bearded. It predicted that he would return to Mexico from across the sea and that he would come in the clouds from the east to save them. Well, in 1519 Spanish galleons arrived in Mexico carrying a group of conquistadors led by Hernando Cortez. While the king was waiting to receive the light-skinned visitor with honor, Cortez marched his army right into the center of the Aztec capital. In the near future, Satan will attempt to personate Jesus and counterfeit His return to earth.

The reason this is so important is that Satan will soon attempt to personate Jesus and counterfeit His return. Rendezvous in Space. Rendezvous in Space Redbook magazine made a survey of the eight leading seminaries in America and discovered that only one percent of the students believed in the second coming of Jesus. The reason for this astonishing skepticism may be revealed by the experience of D. L. Moody, the great lay evangelist. Does that also explain why the modern church is so strangely quiet about this glorious future event? There is no event of the past, present, or future that has a stronger basis for belief. It is biblically clear that God’s complete plan for this world will not be fulfilled until we are transferred into that perfect home He is now preparing. When and how will Christ’s second entry into earth’s history take place?

When His disciples approached Him on the Mount of Olives with the anxious question “What shall be the sign of thy coming and the end of the world?” Then Jesus proceeded to outline the major signs that would mark His second coming.

An Amazing Fact Legend has it that when the Greeks were unable to capture the city of Troy even after imposing a 10-year siege, they finally resorted to a clever stratagem. The Greek army pretended to sail away and left on the shore a huge, hollow wooden horse as an apparent victory gift.

However, the gift was actually filled with several armed warriors! Sinon, a Greek spy inside Troy, persuaded the Trojans to bring the horse within the city walls, saying that to do so would mysteriously make Troy invincible. That night Sinon released the troops hiding in the gigantic horse. After killing the Trojan guards, they opened the gates to the waiting Greek soldiers, and Troy was captured and burned.

Faith Reclaimed > Home. The Search for the True Church. The Search Is there a true church in the world today? And if so, how can it be identified? Of all the religious questions facing the modern truth-seeker, this is certainly the most demanding and also the most frustrating. Conflicting voices from every quarter declare that they have the answer. Denominations, sects, and cults make strident claims based upon emotional interpretations of isolated Bible texts. The average Christian today has been so totally turned off by these exaggerated boasts that many have even discounted the possibility that any “true church” could really exist.

It is very important to recognize that no church can be proven superior because its members are without sin. But the question remains: Is there some valid way to identify the church which is closest to the biblical standards of truth? It must be apparent to all that if God has a special church in the world today, He will reveal it clearly and explicitly in His holy Word. The Woman Symbolizes the Church 1. The Biblical Timeline.
