Thank you “Someone” I don’t get their system either. Are all cops murders? Hate to bring this up again but Michael Brown being shot six times, usually a revolver has six bullets in a chamber, so in other words, that cop empty his gun and costing the system more money to refill his gun again… I just don’t get it at all. Yet the USA is in Trillions of dollars in debt? No wonder they are in debt!
So … “Someone”, not at all that you are interrupting on this topic, it like what I call a chain reaction on this topic. Your point of view justifies my topic of how the bible is use in today’s world… and it is agreeing to what I am pointing out the METAPHORS in this subject, I am also happy that you are posting your point of view as well as Morton point of view on this board.
As dopey2 mention “Lake of fire = imprisonment” we can be imprisonment in our own mind, like bullies, they suffer the consequence of their actions by having a police firing six bullets from one chamber. We can also be in jail in our own mind as well, that is by not having anyone to socialize, not having any friends. So the choices we choose is by the actions we choose to be with and learn from. We can also be jailed in our own mind. As the bible quote, the mark of the beast, it could mean that we think evil. Or to be marked, we can even to begin to think evil like in the same manner as a bully does, so the bible set an example of how we can mark our mind. By teaching those bullies, to choose the actions wisely and not be the subject of that mark, so to become clean is to be baptize and wash away all your sins and start to think in a positive manner, as even today, health authorities are educating the public to wash our hands to be free of germs, so we wash our sins away to be free of evil. Or are the cops being paranoid that they over react on their job?
As for Prophecies, it is the way one view things in life and can determine what the bible is trying to say to us as I mention, it upon one’s view on how to view the words in life. Has nothing to do with witch craft. Keep in mind, over 2000 years ago, they didn’t have what we have today, no prescribe drugs for our illness, so they had to depend on what God has on earth for us as in Herbs, botanical garden that we have in some cities, so in other words Prophecies is one’s way of thinking as well as to use his way to create a life for ourselves without prescribe drugs that we have in today’s world. We all think differently and say things differently as I stated to Candlefish. French speaking, Spanish speaking, ASL speaking, evens the hardest Language we have today “English”. Prophecies also mean that it can translate our way of thinking from negative point of view to a positive point of view.
Warnings? God mention about watch out for warning signs, there are many, for example, a rainbow around the sun or moon, or rain bow around the sun that are like brake disc, that means there is more bad weather is coming, again keep in mind over 2000 years ago, there were no satellite dish.. Half the time the meteorologist is wrong, so if you depend on signs that God mention in the bible, we can determine what we are looking forward to in the fore future.
Even the first nation believe in what as they say, “Mother Earth” has to offer us, they still use those earth grown medicine to live today.
Thus is the reason why the bible is for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness as Dopey2 said... I just did reproofing and corrections for those who don't understand the biblical terms, or tried to at least… that is all God is trying to tell us, is to try to understand it.
To translate from King James Version (KJV) to New International Version (NIV) you can see how it can change one’s view?
2 Timothy 3:15-17King James Version (KJV)
15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
2 Timothy 3:15-17New International Version (NIV)
15 and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
Salvation meaning to save you from evil, save yourself from being a bully, save yourself from shooting someone without a reasonable doubt.
Reproofing is just that example.. reproof to help one to understand what it is saying, As English has different ways of saying things, if one way don’t work, then try another way.
Non prophecy is when one don’t follow the bible, they are not saved, in other words, be in blessings way and not in harms way.
Reproofing = in other words.
In other words, the cop that ended Michael Brown and Eric Garner life, they were the judge as how to fix those people and putting them in hell before death. Those cops thought they were God.
The bible also quote [I just reproof]
Galatians 5:22-23New International Version (NIV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
If we were not imprisionment in our mind, we would follow what God is asking us to do, therefore those who were killed by the cops wouldn’t ended up being justified by the cop with them ending their life, so by living by God’s words is an example that we see today and what has happen in the USA with the cops ending two people lives. The prophecy of anyone is one way of thinking, one way of how God wants us to live, to live in peace and harmony.
If those cops approach those who lives were ended, there is a good way to approach them without ending their lives, are they trained to approach those who are oversize like Michael Brown? Or Eric Garner? Yes they were acting like if they were God and had the power to do what they think they can do, but like Jephthah thinking he was God, even tho he pray to God for the power to win, it isn’t for him to take his daughter life, thus is why later on as Paul stated the fruit of the spirit as an after thought. To set a good example because of what Jephthah did. So in my view, God allow Jephthah to think of it in his way and the outcome to show an example of what can happen and do we allow that? That is one’s choice, one free will to choose how we can live our lives, then Paul stated to the people in Galatia.
So it has nothing to do with witch craft? Nope, if one sit back and take time to reflex in other words pray, be kind has nothing to do with witch craft and if you take the time to think. Stress cause a lot of illness like Hyperactive Thyroid, so if you take time to reflex=pray, you won’t be doing anyone harm, you are giving that person peace and this help them to stay healthy.
Now Candlefish, why write about anyone in the bible, ok… if the bible didn’t say don’t add to this book… I could write about you and your behavior towards God? Why write about them, it is to reflex on example of those people and how they lived their lives, it like a journal of God’s words put all together and name it “Bible” not memoirs
For you Candle the version for you to pick your brain with is the KJV. ~ only if you choose to...
Now for a man that don't care about history, Candlefish just did a very short history of his boyhood on English word of "LET". So therefore it is written, it is written in here as the people of God or in those days.... it is also written.
