    YOU are the one who asserted your superior translation powers.

    You might want to step away from the mirror.

    TWICE...I posted the actual Greek words and their meanings. The second time I provided sources.
    These aren't my superior translation powers. These are from Strongs Concordance and Vines dictionary.

    No, now you are blatantly LYING. I specifically stated that my own study of scripture led me to my understanding. I never said anything about 'special revelation'.

    There is this command about bearing false witness, perhaps your translation of Greek and Hebrew into English negates those commands to something different?

    You stated in #4: "Yes. This IS what constitutes ‘The Mark’ - not some bar code or implant." Then in #121: " My understanding comes from God, not from men who push doctrines du jour."

    Well, I'M SORRY, the words used in the Bible signify a physical manifestation, a mark. You specifically said that is not what the Bible says. That it refers to something else. Then you say your understanding comes from God, not from men who who push doctrines du jour. These are word translators. These are people who specifically study languages for years. They translate word by word. Not doctrine by doctrine.

    If that were so, provide your source for a different meaning of the word that has been translated into English as "mark". Show how the scholars are wrong about the meaning of the word. The only thing you've come up with is "my understanding from God". I love when people claim "understanding" from God, that runs contrary to what the Word actually says. You can't argue with them, because hey, their "understanding" comes from God.

    You haven't provided any sources that the word is wrong. That numerous translators who spent years translating got the word wrong. All you have is your "understanding" from God.

    I'll stick by my charge.

    Then you have the audacity to compare me to a Pharisee.

    Audacity???? Who was it who compared me to Satan in reply 122? Who was it in the very first post you pinged me to, accused me of making things up and listening to false teachers??? You got a lot of audacity yourself there pal.

    Let's see...here is EXACTLY what I said:
    "Words have meanings. You can't just make up new meanings to suit yourself and your ideology, unless of course you're a liberal or satan."

    Let's break this statement down.

    "Words have meanings." Check.
    Yup, they do. Specific meanings.

    "You can't just make up new meanings to suit yourself and your ideology," Check. That's exactly right.

    " unless of course you're a liberal or satan." Check. And there we have the Satan comparison.

    So, since you were offended by the Satan comparison, you're admitting to the previous part of the sentence, of making up new meanings to suit yourself and your ideology.

    You can't have one without the other.

    If you aren't just make up new meanings to suit yourself and your ideology, then the comparison to Satan would be inaccurate and there would be nothing to be offended about. But since you are offended...

    Now here is where I can begin to agree with you, but only to a point.

    I'll state this again - just for the record. I DO NOT subscribe to the tradition and doctrine that the "mark" in Revelation is a physical branding. Instead I understand "The mark" to be thinking (forehead) and acting (right hand) in support and submission to the Beast, which I understand to be an all-intrusive government power given power by Satan himself.

    I have no problem with believing that people will think and act in accordance with the AC. But the Bible specifically describes a physical/action representation. Very much akin to baptism. A person is baptized as a physical action representing their belief/allegiance to Christ. You stated that the mark was not a physical mark...but RATHER a belief system. You are presenting it as one BUT NOT the other. AS FACT. You have nothing to present to anybody that your "understanding" is true or real. You are stating that the words used in the Bible are wrong, or don't mean what they say. And yet have nothing to back that up.

    Cults are built upon people having "understanding" and teaching others their "understanding". (I am not calling you a cultist)

    As far as the rest. It's an issue I'm dealing with.

    I will agree its not a salvation issue.

    Revelation 7 talks of the 144,000 sealed. Revelation 7:3 saying, “Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees until we have sealed the bond-servants of our God on their foreheads.” 4 And I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred and forty-four thousand sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel:
    5 from the tribe of Judah, twelve thousand were sealed, from the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand, from the tribe of Gad twelve thousand, 6 from the tribe of Asher twelve thousand, from the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand, from the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand, 7 from the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand, from the tribe of Levi twelve thousand, from the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand, 8 from the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand, from the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand, from the tribe of Benjamin, twelve thousand were sealed.

    Immediatley we go to verse 9, where it talks of a great multitude being in heaven, taken out of the great tribulation.

    Revelation 7:9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands; 10 and they cry out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” 11 And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying, “Amen, blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen.” 13 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “These who are clothed in the white robes, who are they, and where have they come from?” 14 I said to him, “My lord, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 For this reason, they are before the throne of God; and they serve Him day and night in His temple; and He who sits on the throne will spread His tabernacle over them. 16 They will hunger no longer, nor thirst anymore; nor will the sun beat down on them, nor any heat; 17 for the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the water of life; and God will wipe every tear from their eyes.”

    AFTER this, chapter 8 describes the opening of the seventh seal.

    So...in one chapter we have the sealed 144,000 on earth and the great multitude already in heaven.

    Then we go to chapter 8 with the seventh seal.

    Revelation 11 talks of the 2 witnesses who prophecy for 1260 days. 3-1/2 years.

    Revelation 11:1 Then there was given me a measuring rod like a staff; and someone said, “Get up and measure the temple of God and the altar, and those who worship in it. 2 Leave out the court which is outside the temple and do not measure it, for it has been given to the nations; and they will tread under foot the holy city for forty-two months. 3 And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.”

    So...the 2 witnesses are around for 1260 days, 3-1/2 years.

    Revelation 11:13 At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.

    Sounds to me, that if people are giving glory to God, there must be believers.

    Then in chapter 12, John describes the woman (Israel) being in a place prepared for her protection for 1260 days or 3-1/2 years.

    Revelation 12:5 And she gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron; and her child was caught up to God and to His throne. 6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she *had a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

    And then a repeat.

    Revelation 12:14 But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.

    So...We have the 2 witnesses prophesying for 3-1/2 years, then we have Israel in protection for 3-1/2 years. 7 years.

    The lazy, lamebrain part of my generation who didn’t bother to learn the basics and are now administrators, education experts, and senior teachers made up these techniques because they did such a crap job with their students who are now teachers.

    I worked for a number of years, in the Jr High ministry at my old church. All my guys are now adults, with the older ones over 35.

    One of my guys is an educator. He'd send me emails that you wouldn't believe. Spelling, sentence structure, punctuation, all terrible.
    I mean TERRIBLE.

    You would honestly think English was a second language to him.

    I know he's got his masters, not sure about his doctorate. Last I heard from him, he claimed to be a school principal.

    I pointed out his terrible grammar and spelling, and he just laughed it off, saying he has a secretary to take care of things for him.

    Hey, I'm just a dumb construction worker. I don't have an advanced degree or high position anywhere. But I'm at least relatively competent at grammar and spelling. At the very least, if having problems with spelling, I can use spell check.

    The way he came across, he was almost proud of his incompetence.
    (By the way, despite my best efforts in his youth, he still became a liberal, who now lives in Minneapolis...where he fits in perfectly)
    (He grew up reached the lawful age of adulthood in Illinois, near Chicago. Went to college in California, near LA. Now lives in Minneapolis.)

    I’m talking about the rapture and all the believers leaving earth and leaving the non believers to fend for themselves.

    It’s not what a loving God would do.

    The Bible states clearly that the Tribulation is a time of Gods wrath. All the plagues and pestilences and everything happens at God's orders.

    The Tribulation is a time for Judgement. But he doesn't leave them to fend for themselves, he seals the 144,000 Jews and the 2 witnesses, to witness for Christ.

    Revelation 7 describes a vast throng of believers who come from the tribulation.

    The only problem is who is going to offer testimony if everyone is gone?

    Its pretty clear

    Revelation 11:3 And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.” 4 These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the God of the earth. 5 And if anyone wants to harm them, fire proceeds from their mouth and devours their enemies. And if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this manner. 6 These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire.

    Read Revelation 7, about the 144,000 Jews, sealed by God. They are the great witnesses.

    I’m not interested in arguing with people such as yourself who put themselves upon pillars of arrogance vaunt their self-asserted superior translation prowess to beat down anyone who does not tow their lines of “perfection”.

    I posted my understanding. I don’t care if you do not like it or disagree with it.

    Your kind make Pharisees pale milqetoast in comparison.

    You're a real peace of work.

    YOU are the one who asserted your superior translation powers.
    YOU are the one claiming the special revelation from God.

    Then you have the audacity to compare me to a Pharisee.

    Typical liberal, with the projections.

    Here, I'm going to do one more set of things here.

    Since I already posted the seven times that χάραγμα is used in Revelation and the one time in Acts, here is a link to a site with the English/Greek concordance with the use of the word
    http://biblehub.com/greek/charagma_5480.htm

    Here is the link to Strong's concordance with the meaning
    http://biblehub.com/greek/5480.htm

    And here is a link to Revelation 13:16 with the word by word Greek to English comparison.
    http://biblehub.com/text/revelation/13-16.htm

    If anyone wants to do a search of the other verses to verify, they can either scroll further, using the arrows alongside the verse or type in the other verses used.

    As anyone can see, I AM NOT using any special self asserted translation powers.

    I am using tried and true methods, used my thousands of other scholars over the years.

    I AM NOT the one using a "special pet doctrine" or the "doctrines du jour" as you posted.

    If someone looks up the word heretical this is Mirriam Websters second definition
    2: of, relating to, or characterized by departure from accepted beliefs or standards : unorthodox
    You have posted a "belief" contrary to what any Bible scholars claim. With NO PROOF, except stating that your understanding comes from God.

    Well...
    "If I am" a Pharisee, for sticking to the Bible and relying on known interpretation,
    Then who does that make you, claiming special understanding straight from God???

    Are you claiming to be Jesus?

    Sorry, I'll stand by the word of God on this one.

    Your so called "understanding" from "God" DOES NOT conform to scripture.

    Words have meanings. You can't just make up new meanings to suit yourself and your ideology, unless of course you're a liberal or satan.

    Look up the word in the greek, for yourself.

    Revelation, true revelation, FROM GOD, will not contradict scripture.

    See #4

    So far as biblical interpretation, the mark of the beast cannot be anything that can be forced on a person such as a tattoo, a bar code, an implant. The bible says we are able to refuse it.

    So, those other things a person can hold you down and tattoo you, or skin implant you, or bar code you. They are not the mark of the beast.

    It is something you willingly give your mind (forehead) and your service (hand).

    You are wrong.

    See #116

    Words have meanings.

    Yes. This IS what constitutes ‘The Mark’ - not some bar code or implant. It’s obedience in thought and deed to the Government Beast’s ideology and religion - so that if you do not think and act as they demand, you will not be able to make a living or buy anything and you will be punished for refusing to comply (Matthew 24).

    Might want to do a little research for yourself and quit listening to false teachers, or making things up as you go.

    Revelation 13:16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.

    Revelation 14:9 third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand,

    Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.”

    Revelation 16:2 The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly, festering sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.

    Revelation 19:20 But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.

    Revelation 20:4 I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

    The word for mark used here, in the greek is χάραγμα or charagma.
    It is used 8 times in the Bible. 7 times in Revelation, as the mark of the beast. One time in Acts 17:29
    Being then the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and device of man.

    The word graven is used, though the word χάραγμα is used.

    χάραγμα or charagma means scratch, etching, sculpture. Comes from the same Charax or χάρακά. Both come from γέγρααπται or graphó, which means to scribe or write.

    Apparently the problem was that he mixed up his credit card with the race card

    He thought the Race Card was the same thing as the American Express Black card.

    At least that's what Jesse told him.

    Hard to believe isn’t it? My public school hot lunches must have 700-800+ calories, and being an athlete, I sometimes ordered two!

    EXACTLY!!

    My favorite was the open faced roast turkey sandwich. The pizza was good. I also liked the turkey tetrazzini.

    Usually, they would have one of my favorites and another meal I would like. Sometimes, I was "stuck" getting 2 hot turkey sandwich dinners.

    I ate at the last lunch period and the lunch ladies knew what I liked, usually holding stuff in back for me, when things were getting low. They always had 6 cartons of chocolate milk waiting for me. 1 sometimes 2 pieces of pie. my favorites were banana and chocolate cream. Coconut cream was good too.

    I'd have 2 trays loaded with food.

    I worked at a Chinese restaurant on Friday and Saturday nights. After work was done, they'd feed us chop suey, with white rice or fried rice. I'd LOAD a 10" dinner plate with rice and a cook would LOAD me up with chop suey. (The cooks liked me. I obviously liked their food). Usually, my 2 buddy's that worked there couldn't finish their plates, so they'd give me the rest of theirs. So basically, 2 full plates of food.

    You know what they say about Chinese food and being hungry 30 minutes later?

    It's true.

    Or at least it was then.

    Unfortunately, that restaurant is no longer around. They had such good food.

    One time, in college, I was probably 18 or 19. My buddies and I were at McDonalds. I ordered my usual 1-2 Big Macs and 1-2 QP w/cheese (3 sandwiches), 2 large fries (todays medium size) and 2 large cokes (again, todays medium). After getting my food, I turned to get a table and my buddy stepped forward to order his food. The girl behind the counter thought that the order was for the 2 of us and asked my buddy if I was going to eat all that by myself. His response was "Yeah! He'll just eat everything and spit the bag out when he's done."

    My buddies nicknamed me asbestos mouth, because we'd order 2 extra large pizzas for the 3 of us, and my buddies would burn their mouths eating, because they knew as soon as I was done eating 1 pizza myself, I would be starting on theirs.

    I didn't get over 200# until I was 26.
    200# at 6-0, with a 48" chest and 32" waist.

    I was 5-11, 185#, with a sub 10% body fat.

    Ran 5 miles a day.
    Lifted intensely for 1 hour.

    Ate everything in sight, trying to put on weight.

    My lunch alone was 1500-2500 calories.

    The picture posted wouldn't be an appetizer for a snack.

    I wonder what the nutritional value is of the Styrofoam container?

  • Mayor Annise Parker Needs a Bible. Will You Send Her One?

    Jesus ate with tax collectors.

    He showed grace and mercy to a habitual adulterer.

    A prostitute bathed his feet with expensive perfume and dried his feet with her hair.

    He touched and healed lepers.

    Then after all that, he was beaten and whipped and nailed to a cross, for my sins and yours and this woman's also.

    I don't agree with the stunt of inundating her with Bible's. What she needs is a loving, Christ like person to come along side her, and show her the true love of the true God.

    I won't send her a Bible, but I'll pray that God will lead a person into her life, to show her his real love.

    Heavenly Father,
    I ask that you will lift up a special person into the life of Annise Parker. Someone you have grown with an exemplary amount of grace and mercy. I ask that you work in Annise's life, that she will see the real you and truly know what and who Jesus is.
    I thank you for what you are doing and have done already in her life, and I thank you for the grace you continue to give me.

    Amen
