The following is a prerecorded program you got questions and answers were diving into the word together right now, it's time for the light a fire with your host biblical scholar and cultural commentator Dr. Michael Brown your voice for more savvy and spiritual clarity called 866-34-TRUTH to get him a lot of fire and now there's your host Dr. Michael Brown for friends and welcome to a special broadcast today on raising all kinds of interesting questions about the biblical text about the biblical languages about specific verses so diving together. I think you find this edifying, informative and enjoyable, but no calls today to start over on Twitter, and James asked this did Jesus go up to Jerusalem three times a year to observe the feast per Exodus 23 if not, why not now, when I saw the question from James. I remember that we've interacted some off of twitter just in different email correspondences. James is a researcher scholar himself.

So there's obviously more to the question in terms of why he's asking it. We only have a look to that tells us specifically that Jesus is a boy who was with his parents and part of a caravan of Jewish people coming into and out of Jerusalem for the Passover meal in John 10.

There's a reference to him being in the city for the festival of lights which should be conical, which is not one of the biblical feast. We know in John seven.

He's in the city of Jerusalem in conjunction with Sukkoth tabernacles, but outside of those taxes and then Passover dialogue in Jerusalem as others text doesn't tell us, but I would absolutely assume that he did know was there is no biblical evidence that he did not include biblical evidence that he did with this and this would have been his persistent habit as a male Jew living in proximity to the land if you were too far away and it was impossible to get there and back repeatedly and things like that that could be a potential issue that come up, but from Galilee to Jerusalem. It's it's readily doable and other pilgrims are doing it so you go there for Passover than you go there for shoveled feast of weeks, Pentecost in this. It's now two trips in preprepared time and then you you go there for Sukkoth tabernacles so it absolutely assume that that was the case, I'm just looking in the in the comments section. What okay no there are no comments just some likes to the questionnaire so you James. I would absolutely understand that he did. I was in the biblical evidence that we have put Sam Jerusalem for various key feasts, festivals and times and most of them being in conjunction with required peace and festivals and that we would expect that for him as a Torah observant Jew that he would be there in John seven when there is that the threat to his life.

He goes a little bit later than his brothers but he goes okay let's go over to John Ron Cantor taught recently on the Passover from Scripture. He said that the term pastor when X this 12 is incorrect, but rather Pesach means to hover over the Hebrew homes and protect them as is correct is an awesome reality. Either way, first Ron is a dear friend of decades and was it was a student of mine on Long Island in the 80s I was 28.

He was 18 when we first met we been friends over the decades is married to an Israeli woman raised his children in in Israel and is is a dear believer on the front lines of important messianic Jewish ministry in the land and around the world. Great, great speaker. In churches great heart for the lost. And of course, above all, a witness to his Jewish people and he's getting his masters degree now at Kings University. So he's doing serious study academic study as well.

I have to hear exactly what he said contract with it exactly. But there is debate as to the meaning of the Hebrew word poss the verb poss and then in in in another form he say which is a noun is actually the word for someone that's lame in first Kings 18. It's the word use when Elijah says hello your halt between two opinions are limp between two opinions. So hence this idea of walking in a in a hindered way in a halting way so that could say, rather than Passover.

You hover over you or the traditional view would be, it's the death Angel that passes over and doesn't touch them. So let's just say that I have to hit exec nuance of what Ron said there is debate as to the exact meaning of the Hebrew verb involved. Okay Reggie. Romans 829 and 30, for whom he foreknew God foreknew he also predestined over whomever he predestined he called those he called he justified those he justified, he glorified Reggie says, what is the original text of predestined here so there is that the English translations are a really fine here and in other words, predestination is something that is certainly taught in the Bible. There's no question about that. The question is what exactly does it mean what is the nature of it right so that the of the Greek word this is the normal word just a short lexicon to decide before hand so permit so it is, is the Greek it it it does me predestined.

The question is what does it mean does it doesn't mean that that God says okay choosing you Passover. You as you you not you. So, before the foundation of the world. He chose me. He chose to. He didn't choose others for whatever reasons and his inscrutable wisdom but shows us true for no good thing in us and predestined us to believe and have eternal life is that when me and says with a Calvinist with understand or visit those he foreknew, meaning chose out in advance based on what will based on what he knew about them based on seeing in advance that that we would receive his offer of grace and he then works out all the circumstances in life to bring us to that point and into following the steps. He then justifies us, calls us and justifies us glorifies us most of the treasury differently than speaking just about the calling of Israel. There, or that all this is about service not salvation but understanding in terms of salvation, even he glorified this unnecessarily future glory could be we can be glorified us by giving us the spirit saving us because children of God giving us the spirit so as a Calvinist. I pointed to these verses very strongly late 70s early 80s is as proof of Calvinism, but there really are legitimate. Other ways of reading. So again, predestination is taught, but in what sense and in what sense that's the biblical question and with that, there was a second question in the 20 was the best English Bible translation would sit atop three very accurate translations okay of them.

All the shows on this, but since were specifically focusing on biblical language in specific versus and things like that if if I had to choose just three for the broad general reading audience right I would choose the ESV the NIV and the NET right very close with that the revised NASB. Those out.

I would choose if someone was really devoted to the King James tradition than either the new King James or the MEP for those that would want a messianic slant either the tree of life version or the complete Jewish Bible right but just for brought by large mainstream things translations those ones that that I would go with either ESV NIV or NET. The NET I would go with primarily because of the 60+ thousand notes, translated notes and explanatory notes and things like that the translation is very often goes in, but their slightly different directions and sought sometimes falls would be more Jewish approach to understanding but highly valuable, but by top scholars of the NIV of course the best-selling of the English translations, and it it it reads in the smoothest way. But sometimes it is like to be as really painstaking try to use the same word in the same context were repeatedly worth ESV is closer to the NASB doing that ISV is very interesting read. All is well. Just as a few things it that or maybe a bit more outside the box here and there. In any case, those are the littlest ones I would of pointed on okay Gallant the feast of Purim takes its name from Haman's casting of lots. Why choose that name for the feast rather than something else yet. Thanks for the question as well. Gallant or gallant, the answer would be a God turns everything upside down with Haman and for for evil. Became God's means of deliverance for him and for destruction became the pastoral zone destruction so Jews commemorate that in a festive way of Purim and in that sense is the most fun, festive occasion. An annual basis. I remember speaking at a messianic congregation in Florida some years ago. It was during Purim and the leader of the congregation, messianic rabbi was the silver haired brother little bit taller than me but on this particular day he was dressed up as a blanket.

So with top hat on top of the snow slender Galilee look like a Lincoln nest figure with his beard everything but yet it's it's a time where their celebration. Because of this and and everything is turned upside down in that regard. So so that's that's why I will since this is we just mention translations will mass what are your thoughts about the MEP translation of the Bible. I find very enjoyable and accurate so the MEP is the modern English version. It is a modern adaptation of the King James Bible is on a fresh new translation going straight from the Hebrew and the Greek into English, but rather looking at the Hebrew and Greek, but through the lens of the King James and then updating and revising. Accordingly, so I was asked to look at it a few years ago because charisma media put it out. And for those that enjoy the King James tradition either believe that the New Testament Greek manuscripts used by the King James of the better ones and then used by city NIV and the ESV if that's your conviction and you like the style and flow of the King James near the at the MEP is very nice.

It works well and in that regard, and in many cases I I found it to be better than the new King James night and compare the meticulously close is my feel going through it so yeah great that some of this study, how to write back his Facebook Facebook post the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown got on the line of fire by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown cast and remember there's no need to ever miss a single article a single video signal broadcast on the line of fire.

Stay connected with us on social media from Facebook if you're on Twitter if you're on Instagram, YouTube, so are we to grow upset Esther to you will see a list of the different icons connect with us there because were posting literally day and night literally day and night. My team. I am so this will you'll know things it hit the press.

The shows going out boom you will know alright, let's go over to Facebook and start with questions. There Matthew are there missing words and story of Cain and Abel of her that there are in around just for but I don't have any sense of that when reading these passages.

Thank you Dr. Brown short so the Masoretic text of mastery test will tradition reads one way in.

In Genesis 4 and the ancient versions add some words to that. Okay so here's what you have.

After God accepts Cain's sacrifice exceeds me accepts able sacrifice, but rejects Keynes Cain's upset and it says in verse eight, volume or kind.

I'll have a and Cain said to able to keep his brother but he be a Compass Mossadegh voted by a come kind of have LP but argue that says so literally. And Cain said to his brother Abel, and when they're in the field, Cain set a possibility when killed was. It seems like he said something to him right that he sets on the but dropped out. So the ancient versions including the target, which is an ancient Jewish translation, paraphrase the Hebrew text reads, this going to the field so you can make a very good case that that's what was there originally became settable, let's go on the field and the mother in the field he kills otherwise, or the Hebrew reads this and can settable but the facility said so those would be the missing words and most any modern translation will have that and in the notes so here I just read that was new Jewish publication Society version ancient versions of the target we come, let us go out into the field and here it was just goaded Genesis for the NIV using my accordance software and Cain spoke to his brother Abel that says that's with the wrist Samaritan Septuagint Syriac Vulgate in Jalisco out to the field so all these ancient versions say there's actually more there originally. But he says let's go to the field and then he killed him. There are James back to her Facebook questions is the oneness Pentecostal doctrine on salvation, accursed. I specifically mean the idea that one must be baptized in Jesus name, and evidence of salvation speaking tongue. Since this deviates from the true gospel of salvation. Is this not accursed. So based on Paul's words in Galatians 1. If anyone comes to you and preaches no. The gospel is not really a gospel let that person be accursed. So if you are saying that everyone that has been born again and baptized but not specifically in the name of Jesus that all of them are hell bound and that anyone who does not speak in tongues is held on meeting. None of them are saved. That is absolutely false message and it would fall under the curse in that respect, right now it doesn't mean that it's impossible for oneness Pentecostal person to be saved based on ignorance.

What I mean is this, that if if they are worshiping Jesus as God and believe that he is eternal and they believe that this post be baptized in his name. They believe he died for the sins, rose from the dead and they also speak in tongues and is genuine God seeing them where they are. Let them in and filled with us for the speak in tongues if they are not rejecting the sun burst onto Jerez. The son has the father also.

But as always reference my colleague Dr. James White was if you hold to rigid and Orthodox and Orthodox theology, but oneness Pentecostals and then you don't really believe the eternal nature of the sun there for your denying the sun as well as to how far God's mercy goes, that's up to him, but it is absolutely deviant gospel.

It is a deviant message to exclude everybody except this narrow group here at Stephanie deviant message. Can God save people in the midst of it because it is preaching Jesus in that respect.

Perhaps that's his business. We we want to explicitly teach against the error if the argument was just about baptism in Jesus name elicits we should do it. But if you're baptizing them in the father-son Holy Spirit nothing and are saved. This whole different issue but we tell people you're not saved Mr. about his or baptized by one of our bishops in Jesus name that's absolutely heretical Elon is the reason David's sin with the senses. The judgments were different on the two accounts okay so Davidson with the census. It was just a typo there which happens to all of us that the judgments were different or true counsel. Let's just take a look there. So the two accounts are second Samuel chapter 24 and first Chronicles chapter 21 so. Second Samuel second Samuel 24 David sins under divine judgment and then God tells him okay, you've done wrong.

He reproached himself he realizes it. David says Larson grievously. One of them please will remit to go to certify foolishly then God the seer comes to him with a message but like God in Hebrew with a gash right beside Dodge EOD Gad which he was God G a D.

This of the Lord, I hold these three things over you choose one of them will bring it upon your show seven-year famine. Come upon you in the land or shall you be in flight from your adversaries three months with a pursuit shall be three days of pestilences seven-year famine and then three months of being pursued by enemies or three days of pestilence and first Chronicles 21. The same account just a little bit different at the beginning than the same account. The message is offer you these three things a three year famine or three ways three years three months would prefer the adversaries, or three days of the sword of the Lord pestilence of the land. Why the difference. We don't know we don't know. It would appear that the 333 order in first Chronicles 21 is the more natural one right as opposed to seven years three months three days you have one of two choices. Either there was a scribal error because, of which seven got introduced or there was a scribal error in first Chronicles, in which case things were normalized to be more logical. Three.

Three and three that if you look at the ancient versions of them go back to second Samuel 24 to my accordance software have the Hebrew text.

Next to that Jewish publication Society subdues translation mess that the Army Targum this that the Greek Septuagint next to that the Ashita the Syriac, so what when I go there and I'm looking this up. What I want to see us do the versions read differently. Okay, the versions read differently. So I go back to verse 13 and the Targum says seven years right that's with the Targum says and the Greek says hello etc. just have this right yet. The Greek says three and in the Syriac okay it. In any case, it seems that there's a textual discrepancy and then an aircraft in this why you check all the versions when we speak of the word of God being inerrant. What we mean is that in the original manuscripts. There are no errors without God may have inspired writer to recount what someone said in the person's line. We understand that right. But if the Bible say it happened like this, like this, like this you have on these discrepancies so you search the ancient versions house and translated into Greek house, the transcendent Aramaic host Crimson to Syria remit house and translated the letter into Latin or other measures for the Dead Sea Scrolls that read differently here or we have different variations later.

Masoretic manuscripts so you go through all of that and then the vast majority of time you saw this was probably the original texture and the last thing I want to do.

I want to go over to the Christian translation so we use the NIV here as we do this little exploratory research together and we go back to second Samuel 24 and we scroll down to where it says this three years of famine right so in the.

The NIV translates with three rather than seven and the footnote is what we just discovered in our little pursuit together that the Septuagint also reads three. That was the Septuagint normalizing the Hebrew 333 the more likely there was a Hebrew text and from the Septuagint that would reflect the original or accurately by large, the Masoretic textual tradition is to be preferred, but here there Septuagint is translating from another text, Hebrew text and that is more accurate. So we don't have all the original management of any of the original message of copies of copies and copies of copies of copies we have so much evidence in some ancient versions that we can put them altogether like sifting while you done doing that you come out with tremendous confidence in the veracity and the reliability of Scripture is really quite a journey. The more you dig the most studies I know a lot of that not all others that their faith that help I can tell you my own process facility how much evidence of the preserve is like a feast again and you have a discrepancy to the assembly line like this easily dissolve as well.

To effectively line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown got on the line of fire by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown.

Thanks so on YouTube second that like comes up post something in the comments section say and hear from whatever location if you're watching on Facebook. This click share your fear at your homepage if you like. After the shows over.

You can remove them.

But this this will help Facebook and YouTube share these more widely and then just post a comment hey watching from wherever and everyone listening. Writer listed by radio. If you get your right hand free. Just wave at me. I get to see all of you. I feel the way I feel is relisted by podcasting. The two thumbs up.

All right great to have you with us today.

Not taking calls on answering questions that were solicited early in the week on Facebook and on Twitter and go back to twitter. This is me Facebook. Josh asked this for the missing verses in various Alexandrian manuscripts assign that their untrustworthy know you cannot make that generalization.

Is it okay one set of manuscripts has verses 1 to 3 in this other set of manuscripts only has verses one and two.

It could be that verse three is a later addition attributed verse three is is in addition by a later scribe want to clarify something or it could be the first three dropped out the transmission and we can see how this is where you employ the science of textual criticism is not criticism, meaning criticize this Nono. It's Chris's meaning. I'm going to critically analyze I'm going to look at the data in an academic way. So that was just giving example right. Let's just say that you see written 10 times.

Dr. Michael Brown, Dr. Michael Brown, Dr. Michael Brown, Dr. Michael Brown, the one time Dr. Michael L. Brown, and then you see in another text just as Dr. Michael Brown the subject of Michael L. Now you have to explain why you have that discrepancy was very minor, but what you have it. Was it that a scribe wanted to clarify, this is Dr. Michael L. Brown was the neck is what he do this once or could it be that just one time at a force to have because he was used to seeing the actually wrote it in the realist.

How would you tell Walt let's look for all the manuscripts we can and if you got like 3000 that don't have Michael L and 50 that that habit you think only to that habit. Let's also say that these lines about Dr. Michael Brown were quoted by other people. From that time right because of Scripture right and so there there quoted over and over and over and over and over, and none of them have the L parts like okay as is, obviously, in addition, you sort out your voice always translated into 15 different languages and none of them had Elder Alyssa somebody added in one point so you don't know if something is being added. Then persons be taken away unless it's clear it's essential for the meaning it's like oh missing a verse makes no sense in the next verse, but it could be.

In addition, it could be so rude. Generally speaking, a scribe would be more prone to add them to take away was, they might think something is missing that I have to clarify read in bold is a sacred text on it will take anything away from it so often, additions are more easily explain as written by scribes not know unless we must point to make your you also have things in the science of textual criticism where you say okay this is true.

Words were joined together here or or two words were separated here and or or a scribe was writing and and he looked up for second, we look back down he he skipped a line accidentally right then you have names of the topography in photography and wholemeal salute and in different different names, as is the science right and I remember reading ancient texts in other languages like you Rick inscriptions from roughly the time of Moses and in reading these say here's a scribal error. And here's another made that they copy this letter Ronnie did you see how it happens, so wholemeal salute and that's only if you actually look up. Have you been reading the Bible and in the Lord said, look familiar text you look away for second you look back and the Lord said only register for lines, but they started with the same words and the Lord said in a run the same part of the page scribes with you, that you see study them altogether.

This is how you come to those conclusions. Freeman, the Greek word Iglesia is a known mistranslation into the English word church. Some say King James is to blame. Could you expand on this in the King James committee is partly to blame. This correct.

So Clay see would be better translated congregation or assembly that it would be translated church and for example if you're a German speaker. When you say when you secure hell you mean the physical building. That's the church.

The building if you say the mind.

That's the Iglesia that's the community that's the congregation that's the assembly now in English or earths or Spanish Iglesia usually talk about the building or the people, which is misleading because the Iglesia of the real church is not a building. It's of people. So how did Tyndale translated explicit will that for him was congregation so you had that tradition before William Tyndale predates the King James but one of the rules for translators of the King James was to maintain the old ecclesiastical language, hence church instead of say congregation or assembly. It would have been better to translate with congregation or assembly Iglesia often refers back to call Hall in Hebrew, which was the assembly that the the whole congregation of Israel coming together. So Jesus said on this rock him to build my congregation rebuild my assembly.

He died for beautiful congregation, beautiful assembly, without spot or wrinkle, but churches become so fixed in our language, meaning either the building or the people that it it draws people transitively but really should have been translated differently just get so fixed in language that is its use with universal church.

The whole body. Regular local churches will church you go to but can be misleading. We have a beautiful churchman in the building. Even all the people are backslid by go to church as opposed to I am. We are the church. We together are the church. It's a lot easier to go to a building meant to be the church 24 seven. All right, let's see here. David R alleged mistranslation's use as an excuse to lead to the state of today's church.

What what's generally used as an attack on the church is the idea that the Bible is unreliable as we have an English of the Bible is a translation of translations that can't be trusted or that the translators themselves brought their biases in an and therefore best. Other people with their translations.

Those those of the objections that would commonly be raised in point of fact, a massive amount of scholarship. Some of the best scholarship in the world has gone into improving translations of the Bible. Over the generations, and really the offense of the Bible is what it says that it was allegedly says, but what it really says that's the offense, and we must preach and teach clearly without excuse.

It says what it says all right Chandra I recently read that many scholars believe the story of the woman caught in adultery. Johnson, 53 to 11 is not the earliest bit of command scripts. This lease in the footnotes in a Bible skin you speak about why this included a modern translations you have any success to suggest you sort resources on dealing with passages such as this one or the ending of Mark.

Thank you so yeah it is widely known that in the early manuscript early spaceships of John that the account of the woman caught in adultery is not there and in that place there other manuscripts that have it elsewhere and John are there men's groups that have an Luke.

My understanding is that it is a true account that should be read as Scripture was reverence and and all of Jesus as he acts there, but we don't know where it was originally found that that would be my my best take on it. As for the long run you Mark. That's the sum of a separate issue of but since you asked about resources for that.

I always love to recommend an old book told me not to read it was late teens early 20s by FF Bruce but remains timeless. The New Testament documents are they reliable. The New Testament documents are they reliable may be updated by NT Wright. The New Testament documents are they reliable is not so much focus on these issues, but the New Testament text how we got it how reliable it is. I think you find it very helpful there. The main books that have been written about these other pastors along in your market can pick some other polemical organ to real detail academic discussion that might be a bit more than you are asking for Naomi. There are many baths in Israel for cleansing originally for Israelites out of the practice of offering funds become the one baptism, one faith, one baptism thanks yes oh there were purification rituals associated with the temple in Jerusalem and then by pharisaic extension associated with ritual purity for people in different parts of the ancient world, but if you want to tour to Jerusalem. You will surely be told okay here with companies to stand here all these little baptismal pools right or baths referred to them. So this would be a matter of innocent steps going down to the water and the steps coming out so ritual purification is required for numerous numerous rights in ancient Israel as the Torah legislates in Jewish law added to it so it became a a right and assemble them to do with repentance. It became a sign of cleansing and turning to the Lord and therefore Johnny Mercer is a priest repentance to prepare the way for the coming of the Lord called on people to be immersed in water and in their repentance and then as this was a very natural response to two faith.

Now the culture to to be baptized as a sign of repentance. This was now priest everyone Jew and Gentile alike and thus became the entry point became the once for all sign that I have now died to sin and live to do the will of God and and now a follower of Jesus, Yeshua saw Matthew in your opinion, what is the best most likely correct reading of Genesis 61 through four. I believe it is speaking about fallen Angels. If you just search the website asked Dr. SK dear Brown, there were just search for the feeling any pH IL I am the feeling and I'll explain it there, but you my best understands that the sons of God were divine beings who fell and somehow had the power to take on human form to be able appropriate or take over human bodies and now become kind of a mixed race that this was one of the ugliest things that happened leading up to the flood and seem to continue thereafter and then. From what we can tell the Israelites were successful in wiping out the descendents of these. This is a hold on I clean this other guy things like that. All right, get type a few more questions will address them on the other side of the great member Center for my emails and asked this will never miss anything that comes out, say, SK DR, Brown will be like that line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown got on the line of fire by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown I did last night's count to 10% count that he in turn turns around and donates backdoor ministry so you get blessed with a discount you get some terrific health supplements that that really are great made that the highest levels of production and care for your body and then we get a donation made to also vitamin spreads everybody know the more you keep it secret's share with everybody you know right going back to twitter for questions that were posted earlier in the week a cost Mark asked this go elements Redeemer in Hebrew go ministries are manifested to them what ways in what ways are they forbidden to go ministries and freeing slaves care for widows and orphans avenging murder closer to them today by the body of Christ better or different than in Jesus day right we have not been given the responsibility to avenge murderers, meaning that if we understand this bloodshed be gone hunt the person down and kill them will absolutely, certainly not if we like any other citizen or where someone that was involved in murder we would do our best to get it reported to the police so that person could be rightly prosecuted for their alleged crimes, but the church is engaged in ministries of mercy. Dan Knight believers around the world work hard to care for the needy and the poor, and they they work to redeem people who been slow sold to sex trafficking or been enslaved in other ways.

So whatever we can do without going into another country to overthrow its government right whatever we can do to to work against the evil we do it so I mean is we don't foment a revolution to bring a government down because they're enslaving people but if we can help the slaves find true and lasting freedom. We certainly do it best with the specific goal L practices under the law, such as if if you're your brother is married and he dies without having children, that is your obligation to marry the widow know that status of that does not apply to that was specific for Israelites law. Let's see Cedric this Jeremiah 1023 teach Calvinism.

If not, what is its interpretation. Jeremiah chapter 10 verse 23 The other Nike Lola a Dom D'Arco so I know the Lord that literally translated is not for a man his way so to choose or determine is what you would supply that though the East Calais for Hochstein at Santo is not for man to to literally to to go to walk and and prepare his steps so the new JPS. I know Lord that man's role is not his to choose that man is most cannot direct his own steps, but a Calvinist could say yeah that's what I believe that the that God predetermines our steps and that we don't make those choices so a Calvinist could read that and you could think that's what it means. I would not really like that for a couple of reasons. Even the reverse is here. Jeremiah is talking about asking God to chastise without an wrath and support wrath upon the nations who listen this have not heeded you upon the clans that have not invoked your name. They devour J because they've done the opposite of what you want them to do so. If the verses are saying that when human beings do is ultimately what God predestined them to do. It certainly can be would say because the whole Bible from beginning to end.

The senior response would responsible responsible is responsible to start reading Proverbs 1. You make bad choices, your pay make bad choices doesn't judge it right so it obviously obviously is not saying that whatever choices you make. You can plan etc. it's saying you can't just set your course your you don't know where you can end up you don't know the things that happen one there may be unexpected events of all kinds that change your plans. You have sovereign control, real-life drive sovereign to children as breath and, in addition to that God made direct he may have a purpose and an and intercept you along the way. Nothing can run your whole life and govern every decision you make, but rather intervenes. What he wants to. So it certainly doesn't teach Calvinism otherwise. Human responsibility would be undermined in that respect, of course, my Calvinist friends would say no to predestination your responsibly work hand-in-hand, but my understanding would be no if God actually predestines it would be Hitler then then Hitler could say only what you call me. Do they still Romans nine deals with the very objection rolled his eyes as who are you talk back to God right that that's Rome sciences who you talk like you got it does not actually say that God predestined it would be Hitler.

In that regard. Without knowing who Hitler was. Anyway, the Texas little furry okay James, if you're riding don't drive off the road. Man's friend James wife is on those endless bike rides you could just mutter in your breath that's fine okay oh yeah, the next question from Cedric of God is God the author of evil is not who is so of course God is not the author of evil. My friend Frank church with tell Calvinist that based on calendars and God is the author of evil and callous with a response of the author of evil is the one who commits evil the first time. What I mean is that evil is actualized by by the choice of a free being like like Satan before he was fallen before he was the adversary as a glorious angel that God gave him a choice to obey or disobey one. He disobeyed evil was now actualized same with Adam and Eve. Ryan does alarm really mean forever in Heber, Leviticus 16, 1929 to 34 which concerns the aquifer service that provides torque as well as provide three times. That is an eternal alarm statute. This eternal statue not conflict with the narrative that Jesus Christ death at home. Thanks so alarm does not always mean eternal one speaks of God being low Lala the Lomb mail. The Lomb from everlasting to everlasting, from eternity to eternity Shirley it means eternal then but other times it means lasting means through the generations means as far as the eye could see.

As long as the Sinai covenant was standing that was and always statute was the Sinai covenant failed because the children of Israel failing God instituted a new and better covenant right so those things with going to the crossmember issues as the central abolish but to fulfill. Three brings it to its full meaning you'll find that 75% of the court, eternal commandments of the Torah, soulful for all generations, forever and ever, 75% of them can only be performed with a functioning temple and priesthood and Israel sovereign in the land was a canopy which means either God is not allow the children of Israel to to follow 75% of the forever commandments or he provided a new and better way and I get into that old volume 3 and four Vance Ranger's objections to Jesus. My five volume series of attacks.

There is a sin that leads to death first on 560. I'm not saying that you should pray about that. What sin is that referring to. I am not sure the scholars have consulted cannot say emphatically we can do our best understand best based on other verses. Is it it such a rejection of God's grace that this could be a death sentence on this person and there's no sense praying for them. They blaspheme the spirit and is a sense praying for them or is it something like particular worthy of the Lord's table, which if there's no repentance. This can be death. If you see that you don't pray don't know for sure. I know it's important, as though the Bible describes it, but and let my my propensity is going to be to always pray for people's repentance always pray for God to bring the back and forgive them if I know that they have absolutely outrightly rejected God could be that God speaks we don't pray for them, leave them that can happen but I will. I would rather have it reinforced by the Lord than to speculate on a mission. Pray for the maybe it's a sin that leads to death. This I mean towards mercy. Pray unless God clues is that they they cross the line. Don't pray like what happens with Jeremiah. Jeremiah 714. Regards don't go pray for Israel. The pray for Judah going to ask Going by the crimestoppers on let's see.

Nona know that the Bose system bow and arrow was often used in the Bible in positive terms so that there is covert and covert horribly conquered the world and there are plagues far worse that of, and that I expect in the future will come especially divine judgments at the end of the age to really understand Scripture with that regard. So know the ball is not a reference to a falsehood or to Corona specifically system is just a method of of war method of conquering Andrew what are your thoughts as to why Daniel is partly aromatic and partly Hebrew is so so Daniel from chapter 1 verse one of chapter 2 verse three is in Hebrew, then chapter 2 verse four through Daniel 728 is an aromatic and that goes back to Hebrew to the end of the 12th chapter is basically this is the section now 2437 28 resisting smoking to the nations, and about the nations so as as Daniels given the answer in Aramaic and now turns to Aramaic text especially addressing that the kingdoms of the world and the events of the nations and then comes back to the center is the second focus system addresses the nation's second after that friends by the time, but remember that thousands of videos on free at my website, including our scores will produce a furious and hopeful.
