  1. The revival is coming and the miracles will be so magnificent like Moses were that there will be no need to try to prove anything\ let GOD prove Himself. In the mean tyme lets clean out the fake people pretending miracles and not let them give miracles a bad name. You know, the guys who go to a weekend seminar and get a diploma as a prophet aftre 2 days and soon theyre in the pulpit say ing: The Archangel Gabriel just came in and hes dressed in a ninja suit. Hes telling me that GOD doesnt want us to eat meat on wednesdays. like your own illustration in one sermon where u said about the people asking for prayer because the demons on pluto were coming for their cat.

  2. I often get the impression that the theology of Christian Zionists is such that there is an anticipation for the Messiah to do things almost as if he did not yet already come and achieve something, which sounds more like Judaism to me.

  3. Isaiah 63

    According to all that the Lord has bestowed on us,
    And the great goodness toward the house of Israel,
    Which He has bestowed on them according to His mercies,
    According to the multitude of His lovingkindnesses.
    8
    For He said, “Surely they are My people,
    Children who will not lie.”
    So He became their Savior.
    9
    In all their affliction He was afflicted.

  4. Jon,

    Yes, I will take your advice. And this will be my last post here.

    No one has been able to provide a counter-argument to my logic. I invite everyone to re-read my posts for the July 23 show and my exchange with James. It is always either arguments from emotion or quotations for shock value of prophecies which have been so obviously fulfilled in the Lord Jesus at his first coming. I am beginning to think that Christian Zionists do not believe that Jesus Christ came at all. Also, I have found that, more often than not, Messianic Jewish teachers are preaching to the choir: their audience is mostly Christian and they are re-educating them to support Israel. They are not primarily converting Jews, which is what they should focus on, since it is supposed to be their vocation, but they seem to be very successful in converting Christians to a synthesis of Judaism and Christianity. It’s interesting. If we are Christians, let us preach the Christ, crucified, resurrected, and coming again in glory. And let us prepare our brethren for that coming, and let us make our burden to create of Jews and Gentiles one new man in the fellowship of the Lord.

    Blessed is He Who comes in the Name of the Lord!

    Peace.

  5. As far as the unity of the Body goes, let’s remember that there may very well be many members of the Body in so many denominations even though they may have some very strange and wrong doctrines.

    I remember I read something once of how one particular denomination which is often called a cult, were a very strong spiritual asset to many during the holocaust.

  6. No one has been able to provide a counter-argument to my logic. I invite everyone to re-read my posts for the July 23 show and my exchange with James.

    I thought James answered your part in total. I did not think you had a counter argument for the Matthew parable – nor the Isaiah passage.

  7. Scripture says don’t debate in front of unbelievers, but it also says rebuke exhort admonish among other things. And don’t forget Paul called out Peter to his face because he was to be blamed. Point our incorrect doctrine. ,God dies not lie . He made the covenant so He will keep it.

  8. Ray,

    We find that this was a practice with Paul, in that he debated with the local Rabbi’s and leading Jews in various cities. The word translated in Scripture is “reasoned.” This comes from the Greek word “dialogue” which fundamentially means to debate. Please note the following,

    “Now when they had traveled through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where there was a synagogue of the Jews. And according to Paul’s custom, he went to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the Scriptures, explaining and giving evidence that the Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and saying, “This Jesus whom I am proclaiming to you is the Christ.” And some of them were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, along with a large number of the God-fearing Greeks and a number of the leading women”. (Acts 17:1-4)

    See also, Acts 17:16-17; Acts 18:1-4; Acts 18:24-28
