Clouds when used in context of God, it is used either symbolic or literal but always represents the presence and the glory of God. Christ coming in the clouds may not necessarily look like Falcon 9 first stage landing visible only for a local region. Christ’s coming will be a more terrifying and dreadful event that affects globally because, Christ is coming in the glory of God in the form of a cloud, sitting at the right hand of God, all powerful where all nations will be gathered before Him and the heaven and earth fled away.
Who are the pre-flood giants or Nephilim? The sons of God are undoubtedly fallen angels. While a literal interpretation provides a union of angels and women, with Nephilim or giant offspring, a more allegorical interpretation is identical to how God uses the terms to explain the spiritual adultery of Israel. Is it possible that fallen angels lead people groups into worshipping them in return of earthly power and demonic wisdom? You decide.
Jesus told the Jews that they shall not see Him until the time comes when they say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!’. Was Jesus referring to a future event in the end-times? No, the event got fulfilled in Christ’s own time on this earth.
Wrath of God will kill you in a very great plague, will make you self-cannibalise, will make you a fuel for fire, will make your children dashed, wives ravished, houses plundered, will leave in the midst of a furnace, will deliver to brutal men who are skilful to destroy and many more. Are you still deceived that God has no wrath on the wicked and disobedient? It is our disobedience that will cause the wrath of God. Being humble before God delays the judgement for disobedience. If we don’t bear fruits of repentance, we cannot flee from the wrath of God. Who is able to stand before the wrath of God?
Many Christians are deceived that the Holy Spirit is given just by hearing of faith or by believing based on Paul’s lies. Jesus made it clear that if we keep His commandments, He will pray to the Father who will send the Holy Spirit to us which the world cannot receive. Only if we keep His word, the Father and the Son will come to us and make it home. As we see in the early church, it was because of Cornelius with all his household’s fear of God, his alms, and his righteousness, the Holy Spirit was given to him and his household. In contrast to Christ and Peter, Paul deceives many Christians today that they receive the Holy Spirit when they believe.
Apostate Paul not only rejects everything Christ taught, but also taught everything contrary to the apostles of Jesus Christ. Here we will explore Paul’s lies and the responses from the apostles of Jesus Christ.
Jesus taught several times to sell all that a person has and give it to the poor. What does it mean to sell all? Is Jesus asking us to become homeless and lose our jobs? Jesus was speaking about selling treasures or riches, not our basic needs. Jesus Himself was mentioned as a carpenter just like His earthly father Joseph was a carpenter before He began His ministry.
The events in the book of Ruth happened around 1385 BC, nearly two decades after the death of Joshua when Boaz was about 40 to 50 years old and five decades after Israel fought against Moab before entering the promised land.
There are two most important requirements to be in God’s army. The first requirement is to be fearless of the enemy. Only one-third of all the people who want to be in God’s army were fearless of the enemy. The second requirement is to seek Him and believe in Him. When God spoke, He need His army to obey and trust in Him fully, just like the army He chose who went to fight a huge army of Midianites without even using a sword.
The book of Samuel which is divided into two books in Christian bibles for convenience but they are actually one book. When the Masoretic texts were compared with Septuagint, it paints a strange picture of some effort made by some scribes who wants to portray the book of Samuel as historically old by removing all historical references for events after king David in Masoretic. Based on the information we have from Septuagint, we can confidentially say that the book of Samuel was written after Rehoboam (or Roboam) began to reign 992 BC.
