It seems to me that Jesus gave up his divinity when He became a man. He was still God and man but in order to pay the price to redeem us he had to do it as a sinless man. I don’t believe he ever used His divine power to do any of the works that He had done, but that He operated only in faith. Otherwise Satan could have said he (God) was operating illegally in the Earth.
We were under the belief that the Church will dwell in the New Jerusalem, with Jesus, as Kings and Priests. Your answer to the question “Where will the Lord Reign”, seems to contradict our belief, unless we are misunderstanding something. Can you please help us understand this issue?
Re: Numbers 8 : 6, 7 “Take the Levites from among the children of Israel, and cleanse them. And thus shalt thou do unto them, to cleanse them: Sprinkle the water of purifying upon them, and let them shave all their flesh, and let them wash their clothes, and so make themselves clean.” Based on that, did John the Baptist baptize the Lord Jesus in the river Jordan by “sprinkling” or by “immersion”?
I have been following where you are saying that the “Church” is the “bride” of Yeshua. But isn’t the church supposed to be pure, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish as Ephes, 5:25-27 says? In my experience the Church is anything but pure, and many don’t even seem to care. Are we not supposed to be working on ourselves? I am in a Messianic bible study where they teach us that the Lord could not bring a Church like this to himself. What do you think?
My husband and I recently purchased a praise and worship video and now he has become enamored with one of the group’s singers. He has even dreamed about her. Divorce is out of the question. I just need some scriptures to cling to while waiting for the Lord to either change my husband’s mind and actions or for the rapture. Thank you.
Given the “peak to peak” view of End Times prophecies, why is it that the Church Age is always omitted from the clear statement of prophecy? Also, given the importance of the Church in God’s scheme, why did He fail to tell mankind about it?
I’ve been reading your blog for a year and enjoy it much. I would be interested in your opinion of house churches. I have read several popular books on home churches and feel that the Holy Spirit is telling me that what I’m reading is good and true. Care to comment?
