1Co 7:29 But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none;
Paul believed the time was so short he told husbands to act as if they didn't even have wives!
The time is short for everyone living as no one knows the moment they die. Paul was instructing those going to teach and thought that it was be easier to be as he was...single.
Php 3:20 For our citizenship exists in [the] heavens, from where also we eagerly await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,
These people were "eagerly" waiting for, or "fully expecting" him to show up!
They are eagerly awaiting their time to be with Him IN HEAVEN, not for Him to show up.
1Jn 2:28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
John didn't expect these people to die and go to heaven, he thought Jesus was coming in their life time and he told them to be ready so they wouldn't be ashamed when he showed up. If you die, you would go to meet him, not the other way around. LOL. :D
There John is addressing the elect, the little children. They are the man child, the witnesses and they must make a stand in the end of days. They will stand and when they face Him they/we will not be ashamed.
Jas 5:7 Be patient therefore, brethren, until the coming of the Lord.
James didn't tell those people that Jesus would be coming many centuries later. These were Apostles. None like them have ever been here since. They had God's ear more than anyone. God would not have led them on to think that, he was coming quickly, only to have it draw out 2000 years. These people were definitely worried about the condition of their flocks at the appearance of Jesus. For them, this was it. :) There was no millenium wait for them. It was their time. And we live in ours. :)
The last part of that verse 5:7 and 8 is...Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
That is how I understand those verses. We are looking at them with a different view in mind. I'll keep searching for the ultimate verse that truly nails this...and I know you will too. :>)
So you are elevating yourself to that of a man of God. LOL so much for your testimony today oprev. Perhaps you need to read your Bible less selectively
"If anyone wants to be first, he shall be last of all, and servant of all" (Mark 9:35, NASB). May be then you would be more believeable. Your attitude here is not better than that of Absalom.
Do not ping OPREV, he is no longer a Freeper.
That wasn’t me...I’m not that clever. And besides, it sounds like a male response! I just thought it was funny.
Thank you. I have a feeling he’ll be back in another incarnation.
Free Republic shouldn’t allow women to moderate this site because this female Admin Moderater just zotted you.

Sorry, didn't get the message soon enough - but got is loud and clear now, thanks.
I’m not surprised you’re not married.
They try, they fail.
LOL, that will leave a mark.
Like I said: sinister and menacing.
Much appreciated, ma’am. :) Looks like I missed some of the fun though! LOL Not like I’m too disappointed!
The male mods had the great pleasure of sitting back and watching the female mods take that little boy to the woodshed.
We know when to step back and let the women take charge.
The initial post was grossly misinterpreted, misemphasized, misconstrued slants on Scriptures that had virtually
NOTHING sensible to do with the whole counsel of God in His Word.
I find the perspectives you fling persistently out on such threads to be outrageous manglings of Scripture—outrageous to the max.
There’s no internal consistency to the IL-logic.
There’s no consistency with the rest of Scripture as a whole.
There’s no no consistency with true history.
There’s very little significantly different between the postulations you post amidst grossly mangled Scripture and bad science fiction.
It’s still mind boggling that anyone calling themselves a “Christian” could actually honestly believe such UNBIBLICAL hogwash.
Blessed be the name of the Lord!
Then there’s the . . . no Jew nor Greek, male nor female, bond nor free in Christ.
Not having a brazen control freak hussy yelling across from the women’s section to hubby in the men’s section to explain the sermon sentence just uttered is one thing . . .
Not having a brazen control freak hussy trying to unfittingly dominate a man or men in a group is one thing . . .
BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD.
QUITE A FITTING AND LONG PATIENT ACTION.
THANKS for all the tireless labors you do hereon in our behalf, in FR’S BEHALF AND IN BEHALF OF THE KINGDOM.
