I just hope you'll be ready to make the right decision when that time comes, because we both know that the other side is getting ready, we should too... It's all going to come down to the sat vs. sun thing, there's a lot of people selling their souls and preparing for the end, but on the wrong side...
. . .teachings that assume that pretender to worldwide godhood is the Father are on that side too.
I have to reject out of hand any weird prophetic sounding explanation of when the tribulation or something is supposed to happen based on a biblical based formula involving counting years.
I mentioned earlier on this thread about being SDA and the Jehovah's Witnesses too, have a timeline supposedly going from Cyrus the Great and the return from exile of the Jews from Babylon. This was made up in the early 1800's and I guess presupposes that science got it right as far as fixing all the dates in distant history. Well these dates may not be right, so what good are these forecasting schemes unless it can be unquestioningly proven that the dating is accurate?
As the National Conference on Ministry to the Armed Forces, we go by our acronym, NCMAF. We began in 1982 as a private organization, but our roots go back to 1901 when the decision was made by the War Department (predecessor to the Department of Defense) to require ecclesiastical endorsement for clergypersons who serve as chaplains in the armed forces.
Our members, as endorsers for particular bodies, are the point of contact between the armed forces and over 220 religious denominations and faith groups. Our common goals are to recruit, endorse and provide oversight for clergypersons who desire to serve as chaplains in any one of the branches of our armed forces.
Having accepted God’s Call to minister to people who serve in the armed forces of our country, I covenant to serve God and these people with God’s help; to deepen my obedience to the commandments, to love the Lord our God with all my heart, soul, mind and strength, and to love my neighbor as myself. In affirmation of this commitment, I will abide by the Code Of Ethics for chaplains of the United States Armed Forces, and I will faithfully support its purposes and ideals. As further affirmation of my commitment, I covenant with my colleagues in ministry that we will hold one another accountable for fulfillment of all public actions set forth in our Code of Ethics.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Psalm 122:6
