I really do miss Jesus. I have never seen him but how i wish i could! I wish he'd return today! Some might think it strange for a man to love someone he's never even seen before and love him more than his own wife. I would give my life if he would return. When i think about Jesus i have this overwhelming feeling of reverence, love and adoration. My heart aches for the return of my King!

Two thousand years has been a very long road for all of us who serve him and have never seen him. I hope we do not have to wait much longer. We may go through some truly horrifying times to get to see him, but I and many others would gladly bear that burden if he calls us to it. On that day there will be no more war, or sorrow, or horror, or death and disease, no more strife or starvation, no more tears or murder or thievery and no more dead babies. When the Prince of Peace comes all will know him for who he is and bow down and mankind will be shown what it was meant to truly be. He told us not to be afraid of the days ahead and so i shall not, but i long for the day when i can see him. I hope all can come to know him and feel the way i and my brothers and sisters do about him. We could have that today if all of mankind could dare to believe, have hope and surrender their hearts to him. The savior is our way to peace, joy, reverence, love, awe and his rest. I just wanted to convey these feelings to others as i worship him in my home.

May you all come to know his peace, love, joy and reverence. He is the greatest gift mankind could ever know or ever have.

I couldn't agree more with you.
I'm glad someone isn't afraid to put it out there like that.
I love JESUS!

Ever think that maybe...just maybe there is something that Christians over the last several centuries have been completely oblivious to? How many years will it take until you people realize you believe in an utter lie? Dogmatic thought ftw lmmfaoooo

"Then if anyone says to you, 'Behold, here is the Christ,' or 'There He is,' do not believe him.

Really doubt jesus is coming back. At all. once your dead, your dead. You can claim a new body, but not the old one, therefore jesus shall never return in the flesh.

23“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is the Christ,’ or ‘There He is,’ do not believe him. 24“For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect. 25“Behold, I have told you in advance. 26“So if they say to you, ‘Behold, He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or, ‘Behold, He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe them. 27“For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be. 28“Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.

Perhaps theres a chance that jesus wasnt the messiah, the bible was created by a bunch of jews who thought they would take all the books of their religion and combine it into one big piece of crap and lies in order to keep the public worshipping a false god, so that if a true messiah looked any man in the face he could not tell the difference between him and a schmuck with a bottle in his hand trying to tell you, that the bible tells exactly whats going to happen. The majority of the population will be decieved by the deceiver (the bible, judaism, laddy da) and you worship someone whos never coming back.

Now if you can tell me what this quote means then your an A+ student. And if you ask the internet your not going deep enough.

32“Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near; 33so, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door. 34“Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. 35“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.

And whenever you think about the antichrist, think to yourself for a second, does it mention any sort of idea of who he might be. Throughout the entire bible it merely says he, or judge. Now you could see how that could lead to some sort of confusion right?

Okay sheepie. Go baa baa along, to the next thread. Then maybe when you have some common sense, and actually have read the bible, you might stop acting like someone # on your head, and maybe people might start getting it through their thick skulls, that even if someone says he trying to help you, he could just as likely stab you in the back.

if you're a real christian...christ is inside of you. how do you miss something inside of you?

i mean...you weren't around when he was...so you can't really miss him, can you? it's not like you hung out with the guy...you weren't his best man or anything. you met him in your heart. where did he go?

so bam...jesus came back. still miss him?

Good thoughts. It's interesting that so many people are feeling His approach. It's hard to understand, but salvation from this present order can actually be felt. As bad as it is now (or will become), our redemption draws near. It's almost like a magnet drawing us toward the other polarity.

The best way for me to describe the reality behind the veil is to show you what reality looks like on our side of the veil. We can verify the other side with assurance by simply examining the reasoning behind the message. Your comments suggest that this is a contrived story based on the reasoning of men. The simple answer to this is to examine God's own words. Take a ride on the Isaiah train from chapters 45-the end. Go to Bible gateway and listen to the audio without stopping. When the dialogue hits chapter 53, notice that Jesus is there. Not only is Jesus there, but the person speaking is often hard to distinguish. God sends us up and down on a wave of emotions, ranging from anger toward Him to love for what He wants for mankind. It is clear that this is no mere mortal reasoning some contrived story. God is in complete control and knows exactly where mankind is going. It's all in our best interests.

Once you begin to examine the story on the level of your own walk in life, you come to a realization about the message. It is entirely personal to all who read. It reflects back in a way that allows us to see ourselves by the light of utter righteousness and truth. It's difficult to take if the moral life of the individual is not in harmony with God's attitudes. The central verification in all of this is to realize that God's reasoning is unlike any man.

The evidence for the story comes from the words. No man could do this. It is alien to mankind, yet so true to what we desire deep down for humanity. The harsh parts reveal God's judgment against sin. The pleasant parts reveal where we are headed, as well as where we have been in each generation. Jesus said, "You must be born again." We are all looping through the story. God is long-suffering.

Jesus ascended in the flesh, His flesh was not left in the tomb. That's the thing to understand, He resurrected His body of flesh and that flesh ascended into heaven 40 days later in front of 500 witnesses.

Can you prove that the Jews do not worship the true God? Is there any evidence beyond supposition by unbelievers that it is not the true God? You will probably say that to me, but I am not the one who claimed Him not to be, so you will have to show me any evidence beyond supposition to prove He is not. Richard Dawkins doesn't want to know, so you probably should not use him a source.

I agree. God is always with us, but Jesus is at the right hand of God until the Day of the Lord comes. His enemies must first be made His footstool. Literally, thought, the wave we collapse to produce a choice in life is the Word that created it all. As a quantum observer, we collapse the indeterminate wave (Word) of infinity to change states in matter. From this perspective, we are entangled with God every moment at the subatomic level.

I guess what I am getting at is the anticipation that we sense as time begins to near the tipping point of renewal. The last day of the Lord is the day of rest for mankind; the time of peace for 1000 years when the dead in Christ rise to new life and learn from him face to face. This is an exciting time to be witness to these events. Come what may, many of us are eager to see salvation come.

I am reminded of these ominous words in Revelation. The times may not be as pleasant as we would like. None of us knows our destiny in these times:

Revelation 13

9 Whoever has ears, let them hear.

10 “If anyone is to go into captivity,
into captivity they will go.
If anyone is to be killed with the sword,
with the sword they will be killed.”

This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of God’s people.

Yep, your right. Because I just googled Richard Dawkins. I have no idea who this is. I did not quote him. Get your facts straight. Why do people constantly tell me what i did and said and typed when there completely wrong, it amazes me.

FYI. Just because the bible says so doesn't make it true. If you had actually UNDERSTOOD my posts then you would have realized the point I was trying to make is that the bible is used as the art of deception, in order for people to believe that jesus would come again, putting their false hopes into a religion that tells you its lying to you.

You can't take the bible as fact. Because fact is based upon reason, and the reason for the bible is to confuse you.

I never said you quoted him, I just said he was not a good source of reference because of his own agenda. He is not in science to prove science as a fact, but to attempt to disprove religion. That is an agenda. If scientists themselves use deceptive means, then they are guilty of that very thing you are accusing religious people of.

But I did ask, prove it is not the real God. Use your own methods of observation and experimentation to disprove it, because you seem to hold to the idea of facts being the basis for reason. For every question of reason, I can show you twice as many scientists with PhDs who have used reason to present God. But facts can be misleading and twisted, no matter how much reason you use. If I say "the facts prove the sky is blue" then people would agree because to them it appears blue, but if you are in the sky, it does not look blue. That defies reason also.

The sky is not really blue, our perception of it says it is blue and that is because we can only see the blue from this side. And we can't see the blue sky from space, we see the water as blue because of the reflection, but if we hold water in our hands, it is not blue. Water takes on whatever color is reflected. And at nighttime, the sky is not blue. So for sky to be blue, there must be light and atmosphere. So if I say "the sky is blue" if you disagree with my fact, then you would have to disprove that blue is the color I am seeing when I look up.

That is how God is, when I say God is God it is because I have seen beyond perception. I believe beyond perception, because I have been in the sky and I have held water in my hand. The sky can only be blue if you are standing in one place looking no further than what you can see.

The sky is not blue. That is a fact.

Your overthinking it. I was never trying to prove or disprove god. I in fact believe in god but I am not limited by a book.

A book is a book. But no book has ever come close to the Bible when teaching us about God. God is beyond the book, that is true, but the Bible has taught us about God.
