OSAS says:
No he didn't. That is a misinterpretation of Scripture. He came in the "spirit and power" of Elijah. They both were filled with the same Holy Spirit.

No one was Elijah but Elijah! "Look I am sending you the prophet Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the Lord [the Tribulation] arrives. His preaching will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers. Otherwise I will come and strike the land with a curse." Mal 4:5

The mention of Elijah was to announce the Messiah's arrival.

Elijah is a utmost example of a prophet of God who preached repentance with messages that were authenticated by signs and wonders. (Luke 1:17; James 5:17-18)

As Elijah came before Elisha whose ministry was one of judgment and redemption, so Elijah will be sent to prepare God's people for the Lord's second coming. John the Baptist ministered "in the spirit and power of Elijah, preparing the world for the Lords first coming. Both John and Elijah were filled with The Holy Spirit who gave them the power to minister using signs and wonders. The New Testament identifies John the Baptist as a prophet who prepared the way for Jesus the Messiah. (Matthew 11:11-15; Luke 1:17) In this respect He came in the power and spirit of Elijah, but He was not Elijah.

"See, I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to His temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire will come, says the Lord Almighty." Mal 3:1

This prophecy is fulfilled in John the Baptist, who came ahead of Jesus preparing the way for the Messiah.

Additionally, most likely Elijah will be one of the two witnesses God sends during the first half of the seven year Tribulation period to preach reconciliation to God, so that souls can believe and be spared God's eternal wrath and judgment and to tell of the Lord's soon return.

You have bought a huge lie...and it will be your undoing, ultimately.

Isaiah 5
20 "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
And clever in their own sight!

22 Woe to those who are heroes in drinking wine
And valiant men in mixing strong drink,

23 Who justify the wicked for a bribe,
And take away the rights of the ones who are in the right!

24 Therefore, as a tongue of fire consumes stubble
And dry grass collapses into the flame,
So their root will become like rot and their blossom blow away as dust;
For they have rejected the law of the Lord of hosts
And despised the word of the Holy One of Israel."

Sadly I agree. I like Sahan and I hate that he is wasting his life chasing after a false messiah spewing false and eternally deadly doctrine. If He had that much enthusiasm for Christ he would be a great soul winner.

BKN says:
The men who put down the things God told them to, no matter how some things "may" be oddly interpreted, is something that not only the MEN took seriously, but GOD commanded it, breathed His Words into those men...and we have them written.

And like any interpreter, the Spirit of God interprets to our hearts what HE desires us to know. It is NEVER left up to us, but according to His command and direction.

And every warning He has given is set...every word He commanded about the future...is set...and all the power is in HIS hands, and His WORD will NOT return to Him...void.

It will have effect...in either way...in our walk with Him, or His casting off those who reject HIM.

Satan believes he can return to Heaven, and so do those who follow him...but both are wrong!!! It all will only be as God has spoken it...and His Word IS. What He says is reality.

To T.D. Mills, B. Nixon and all others speaking the truth and spreading the Good News Gospel throughout the World:

You are truly shining a light into this world that is becoming increasingly darker and darker every day. You are certainly making a difference in the world in which we are living.

Amen and Amen

Hello, Marilyn...
My words also, about that darkness. I think many think the "moon" is the light, but without the sun...that dead planet has nothing. All the books, even the Bible without the Lord's Spirit interpreting, is simply reflected light...

John 8:12 "Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, "I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life."

OSAS says:
You have spoken the absolute truth. God has spoken and what He has said will come to pass exactly as it has been recorded. It always intrigues me that people believe they can reject the parts of God's Word that they don't like, or even reject it all and because they have rejected, it somehow it will change the outcome, or it will no longer apply to them, very foolish on their part. What is written IS reality, it cannot be changed and it will come to pass in the very near future.

God's Glory at the Fall

"God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken." (Genesis 3:23)

What did God do at the Fall? The answer may surprise you.

First, God rested. After God completed His work of creating the universe, He ceased from creating (Genesis 2:2-3). This rest continued throughout all of history, right up to this very day (Hebrews 4:3). Thus, when mankind fell into sin, God didn't start His creation work over, as if there was a flaw in His original purposes and designs. Rather, He knew the Fall would happen and responded by continuing His cessation from creating, fully knowledgeable of what was transpiring and fully in control.

Second, God exercised perfect justice. The punishments at the Fall perfectly fit the crimes committed. For example, the serpent sinned by exalting himself above his created place, and God punished him by bringing him lower than all animals (Genesis 3:14). The serpent tried to destroy mankind; God ordained the serpent's destruction by the hand of his intended victim (Genesis 3:15). Eve exalted herself above her created place; God punished her by frustrating her exalted role in helping Adam rule (Genesis 3:16). Adam exalted himself above God; God desecrated his office with a curse on the earth that Adam was created to rule (Genesis 3:17-19).

Only God did not receive the justice due Him. Why were these three acts of cosmic dishonor to His glorious character not greeted with swift retribution?

It's because God also exercised mercy. In judging the serpent, God was ordaining the vehicle of the gospel--the "seed" (Genesis 3:15), which is Christ. God did not deny Himself justice; rather, He postponed His wrath (Romans 3:23-26) and poured it out on Christ for those who believe in Him. What God but ours could rule so perfectly through man's sin? [NTJ www.icr.org]

Hi, Tonya and thanks for your welcome.

I'm still learning my way around these forums. I've followed the Christianity, Judaism and other forums for a few months now. All are very interesting. Your words have been a tremendous blessing to us (all).....some may not think so however, based on a few comments I've read.

Keep up the good fight of faith in glorifying our Lord and Savior. Your reward will be waiting for you in heaven.

May God continue to Bless you and your family.

Ecclesiastes 3
16 "Furthermore, I have seen under the sun that in the place of justice there is wickedness and in the place of righteousness there is wickedness.

17 I said to myself, "God will judge both the righteous man and the wicked man," for a time for every matter and for every deed is there."

BN: For which I am very thankful. He sees into every human heart.

Thank you and I plan to stick around for a very long time to continue to hear and speak the Good News Gospel that's being spread around these forums. We must not be ashamed of being born again and afraid to talk to others even those who do not share our beliefs. Jesus hung out with unbelievers, sinners, cheaters and all sorts of folks. We won't be able to spread the good news if we continue to live in a bubble and afraid to speak to the stranger in Jesus name.
