Prophecy & End Time Events / Injectable electronics?
« on: June 09, 2015, 10:42:48 AM »
Quote from: Harvard University article
Electronic devices injected into the brain or other body parts may treat everything from neurodegenerative disorders to paralysis.

Researchers developed a method for fabricating nano-scale electronic scaffolds that can be injected via syringe. Once connected to electronic devices, the scaffolds monitor neural activity, stimulate tissues and promote regenerations of neurons.

"This opens up a new frontier where we can interface between electronic structures and biology e.g.  electronics/cellular interface."

The idea of merging the biological with the electronic is...

You really have to see this stuff to believe it. You decide if it's relation to the locusts in the book of Revelation.

Here are youtubes about it:

Quote from: Revelation 9:1-11 (paraphrased)
Then locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. They hurt not grass or any green thing or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.

When I was a child:

1. Sodomy (homosexuality) was a crime, but today it's a federally protected right.

2. Marriage was between a man and a woman, but today the federal courts have said that it can be between a man and a man or a woman and a woman.

3. It took 3-4 days to mail a letter across town or across the nation, but now it can be instantly emailed (with attachments and photos).

4. Typewriters were state-of-the art, but today they are obsolete and are replaced by computers.

5. Encyclopedias and Cliff Notes were used to find quick answers, but Google has replaced them for instant information.

6. College degrees could only be achieved by attending in-resident, but today can be obtained online without ever setting foot on campus.

7. Blue laws forced stores to close on Sunday, but today most stores are open all weekend.

8. TV only had 13 channels and only 3-4 of them had working stations on them, but today youtube can be watched 24/7 on your phone.

9. American births outside of marriage comprised 6% for Caucasians and 24% for blacks, but today illegitimate births comprise 35% for Caucasians and 71% for blacks. Abortions keep those percentages artificially low.

10. Less than 500,000 Americans collected Social Security Disability payments, but today it's over over 9 million and it's been growing by 29-44% each year since 2003.

Religion & Theology / Pray without ceasing
« on: February 10, 2015, 09:37:45 AM »
The Apostle Paul said to pray without ceasing. As a young man, I always wondered how to do that because we can't talk to the Lord all the time (a one-way conversation)... so... how do we pray without ceasing? That question was partially answered when someone explained that doing acts of charity is a form of prayer... so... prayer can be an action.

My most recent revelation is that silently acknowledging His presence throughout our day -- whenever we think of Him -- for the rest of our lives -- is a form of praying without ceasing.

Town Hall / Jail Ministry?
« on: December 02, 2014, 03:26:41 PM »
Has anyone here ever been involved in a jail ministry?  :o

I'm getting involved for the first time. I swore that I'd never do it, but then I saw an advertisement for it in a church bulletin that used the scripture Matthew 25:36,37,40 and the Holy Spirit flashed across my mind, "Do it." It was most definitely a command, but I ignored the prompting and set it aside for good. I then wondered what kind of man I am to lay aside the prompting of the Holy Spirit. Am I lazy? Disobedient? So time elapsed and then...

My wife said, "Hey, did you see that they need volunteers for the jail ministry? You should do it." It was a second command from the Holy Spirit. Alas, now the Holy Spirit was speaking through my wife -- and I don't need to be told three times, so I participated for the first time last Friday night.

In the past, I have been involved in home-bound ministry with disabled people and it is work. When you get mixed up in the personal needs of needy people, things can get complicated. Buy hey, if the Lord wants me in a jail ministry, then nothing can stop me. I'll do it.

Sooooo have you ever been involved in a jail ministry and what was your experience?

Religion & Theology / Prayer and FASTING?
« on: November 12, 2014, 04:56:28 PM »
It’s interesting that Jesus said, “…when you fast...” (Matt. 6:16). Jesus didn’t say, “…if you fast…” but He said "when" you fast. The implication is that fasting is something that His disciples will do.

There is an incident in the book of Mark where a father complained to Jesus that His disciples could not cast a demon out of his son. Jesus explained that “…some kind come not out but by prayer and fasting…” (Mark 9:29). The book of Matthew describes the inability of the disciples to cast the demon out because of “a lack of faith” (Matt. 17:19-20).  Subsequently, it appears that spiritual authority (at least in the above case) is connected to THE BIG THREE: PRAYER, FASTING AND FAITH.

Nine months ago, I vowed to give up beer for one year and to go on a one-day water fast every week for the rest of my life, until I stand before the Lord Jesus. The fast is begun on Tuesday at 9:00 PM and it ends sometime on Thursday around noon (about 36 hours). The fast is broken with vegetable juice because it eases the body back into eating with the least amount of shock.

Questions for you:
(1) Do you fast for the Lord Jesus?
(2) What is your fasting regimen?
(3) What kind of goals or intentions do you have for fasting?
(4) How many years have you been fasting and what prompted you to start fasting?
(5) What results have you achieved from fasting, if any?
(6) What are your spiritual, mental, emotional and physical experiences with fasting?

Religious News / Myles Monroe DEAD
« on: November 10, 2014, 02:19:36 PM »
Wow! Myles Monroe just died in a plane crash! I'm stunned, but it also goes to show that we must always BE PREPARED because we never know when we will stand before the Lord Jesus.


College & Bible Studies / Leading a Bible Study
« on: October 26, 2014, 08:02:48 PM »
I may be selected to lead a weekly bible study, possibly starting in January 2015. I'll use the RSV because it has good cross references and footnotes.

In the past at other churches, I have attended bible studies where the pastors were lukewarm about discussing the scriptures. Whenever I and others would show up, the pastor would get a frown on his face because he wasn't excited about doing it. It actually looked like he didn't want to do it, but since people showed up, he could not back out of it.

If I lead a bible study, I will do it with tenacity and gusto for a couple of reasons:
1. Souls are at stake.
2. It will have an eternal impact on people that will follow us to heaven.
3. It is God's Word to us and for our benefit, so let's dig into it.

If it happens, it should be good. :)

Financial News / Starting a business
« on: October 13, 2014, 07:44:01 PM »
I've been thinking about starting up some sort of a business, but to make money, a product must be offered that people are willing to pay for. The million dollar question for a new business is: what product?

I've looked at starting a website with drop shipping, but Amazon (and others) have cornered the market on offering the lowest prices for quality items.

Hummmmm.... gotta keep thinking...

College & Bible Studies / Finished an MPA
« on: October 09, 2014, 02:29:16 PM »
Well, I just finished another degree (an MPA) and that is probably the last one I'll ever pursue. It was more time-consuming than what I anticipated and I'm soooooo exhausted.  I feel like a marathon runner collapsing after crossing the finish line.

I will not pursue a Masters in Theology unless the Lord directs me to in the future because I'm simply too exhausted.  I already began one Masters in Theology, but after completing three classes, the program was discontinued.  ::) So I finished the MPA instead. It was a tradeoff.

It's ironic that I love the bible and can quote it backwards and forwards, but I don't have a Theology degree. However, anyone who has studied Theology knows that the discipline goes far beyond just the bible i.e. history, hermeneutics, et al.

Religion & Theology / Joseph Prince: Hero or Heretic?
« on: July 15, 2014, 11:23:15 AM »
What are your thoughts of the teachings of Joseph Prince?  ;D

Hero or heretic?  :o


Youtube search:

He has only said one thing I disagree with so far and it was in reference to Matthew 7:14:o

I was listening to a preacher named Larry Randolph talk and he said that we cannot take our gifts to heaven, but we can only take our heart.

Gifts are based on 1 Corinthians 12:4-11:
  • utterance of wisdom
  • utterance of knowledge
  • faith
  • gifts of healing
  • working of miracles
  • prophecy
  • discernment of spirits
  • tongues
  • interpretation of tongues
As proof, he quoted the scripture where some people will say to Jesus, "Did we not cast out demons in your name?" (a gift) and "Did we not heal the sick in your name?" (another gift), but the Lord will say to them, "Depart from me you workers of iniquity: I never knew you." (scarey words).

Our heart is our state of mind i.e. in a state of forgiveness as we forgive others i.e. forgiveness, bitterness and strife are states of the heart and will not be allowed to enter heaven. "For with the heart, man believes unto righteousness..." (Rom. 10:10).

So anyways, we take our heart to heaven, but not our gifts.

Ask Your Bible Questions Here!!! / Tithing PRIOR to the giving of the law
« on: February 08, 2014, 12:34:23 PM »
The first mention of tithing is when Abraham tithed to Melchizedek. The next mention of tithing is when Abraham's grandson, Jacob, vowed to tithe 10% to the Lord.

Jacob made this tithing vow before:
1) the 10 commandments were given
2) before the law was given
3) before the Jews were commanded to give 10%.

Click here to read Jacob's vow to tithe in Genesis 28:20-22.

In the Old Covenant, Jews tithed to the priests. In the New Covenant, we tithe to the local church (and give alms to the needy, above and beyond the 10%).

QUESTION: Since the Levitical priesthood had not yet been established, exactly who did Jacob give his tithe to?  ???
