    Is this where you and MacArthur are coming from, based on the Greek, Christians will be saved if they take the mark of the beast?

    I don’t believe the antichrist will be Muslim, quite the opposite, he defeats them.

    In prophecy, he is depicted as a warrior going forth to battle (the white horse/first seal). Defeating Islamic terrorism in a great battle, he will be hailed a hero by the world. Jews will see him as their Messiah.

    As to Christians, those superficial in the prophetic scriptures, will think him to be a wonderful hero also. And due to their various interpretations of who they believe the antichrist to be, some, most notably the dispensationalists, will believe it impossible for him to be the antichrist.

    Once ensconced in the temple at Jerusalem, he will demand an image be made of himself, and a mark imposed on those who believe he is a false Christ, NOT the Messiah. And that, my dear friend, is where the Rev. 14:9-11 passage I posted, and John MacArthur’s interpretation of it comes to the fore.

    Rev 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

    Rev 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

    Rev 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

    The beast is the false Christ, are you saying, when forced to choose between the true Christ and the false one, and you choose to take the false Christ's mark upon you, choosing to worship the false Christ instead of the true Christ, and yet you will be saved?

    No amount of theological gerrymandering can change the obvious intent of this passage.

    We know how John MacArthur interprets prophecy in relation to love. He says, despite such warnings as Rev. 14:9-11, Christians can take the mark of the beast and still be saved.

    His problem is he is a pre-trib dispensationalist. He himself it going to get taken out in a pretrib rapture, those “left behind” are going to have to deal with the antichrist, his image, and his mark. Not him. And to show you how much love he has, he says believers in Christ during those times, since they love Christ, can take the mark of the beast and be saved.

    sasportas to amessenger4god

    The historical tracing of the ten northern tribes westward from the Caucacus region through Europe to the British Isles by British Israel theorists, is a fascinating story to be sure.

    Scripture is claimed to support the theory, by “scripture,” or course the old testament is meant, for the new testament says nothing at all about it.

    If such an important thing as this were true

    - since most of the old testament is addressed to “Israel,” the ten northern tribes they tell us, then most of the Bible has to be ABOUT these ten tribes, allegedly the Caucasian peoples of the west -

    then surely Jesus would have known it, and passed this on to his apostles. Doesn’t it say in Luke 24:45, that Jesus “opened their understanding that they might understand the scriptures?” The same OT scriptures, the British Israelite proponents claim as chief support for their theory.

    Yet we find no evidence in Acts or the epistles that the apostles believed and taught such. On the contrary, it is clear that when they used the word “Israel” it NEVER meant what the British Israel proponents say it means.

    >>There is something else the raid forced, and often overlooked. The Japs now realizing how vulnerable they were from attacks from the sea, decided they had to complete what they failed to do at Pearl Harbor. They decided to implement Admiral Yamamoto’s plan - finish off the US fleet in a large confrontation at Midway...first, then to Pearl Harbor again to finish off what was left of the US fleet.

    We all know about the US Navy’s great victory at Midway. In hindsight, we can see that the courageous Halsey-Dolittle raid, in presaging the Midway victory, was a major contributor to the turning the war around in the Pacific, and ultimately the winning of the war.

    Luke wrote his gospel in Greek, from which you quoted, not Hebrew.

    Since “the builders,” unbelieving Jews, rejected Jesus the chief cornerstone, Psalms 118:22,23, the structure built on that stone, the church, became Jew and Gentile, predominately Gentile. Which is why we have the gospel of Luke written in Greek, the language commonly spoken among Gentiles at that time... to reach Gentiles.

    It would help greatly, in determining whether or not Cruz is a Dominionist, if we were to understand Christian eschatology. Dominionism is Post-millennialism eschatology, usually in combination with Preterism.

    In this form of eschatology, there is no “end time” ahead of us, no future antichrist, end time prophecy has already been fulfilled (in 70 AD). With the end time in the past, all that lies before those that believe this, is Christianity conquering the world, taking “dominion” over it.

    In short, the bringing in of a one world Christian theocracy - which theologians call the “Millennium” (thousand year kingdom of Christ) As to the second coming of Christ, that occurs AFTER the Millennium.

    Does Ted Cruz believe in this form of doctrine? Even more significant, does his preacher Dad believe it? Absolutely NOT. Both are Premillennial Baptists - which is NOT Dominionist, Postmillennialist nor Preterist.

    To identify Ted Cruz with this belief, is slander of the first order. An absolute lie.

    How one believes about Israel is a clear identifier as to whether one is a Postmill Preterist or not (a Dominionist). Premillennialists are extremely pro-Israel, Cruz is a fierce defender of Israel.

    The very word “Marine” defeats your argument. The word seems to have something to do with the sea. likewise, the Merchant Marines.

    The origin of the Marines traces back to the Royal Navy and the Royal Marines. Check out the Horatio Hornblower series on youtube. they depict the Marines, dressed out in red, as sea soldiers, always operating in conjunction with the Royal Navy.

    Whether US sailors and marines like it or not, the US Navy and Marine Corp tradition derives from the British Navy and Marines. Where does the color of US Navy (blue) and Marines (red) uniforms come from, but the Brits? Along with a great many other traditions.

    2. This is a conservative website, and consistent with its social conservative values, FReepers stand against the kind of values “Babylon by the Hudson” is famous for. Probably even the NY FReepers if they be honest. (I’m not referring to the libertarian types on FR, they could care less about social conservative values)

    You are leaving out one little item. Yes, God created Adam in his image, and until the fall, he remained in that image. But once disobedience and sin entered, Adam (and Eve) were no longer in relationship with God. By extension, the whole of mankind.

    It is essential now for mankind to be reconciled, redeemed, regenerated (born again). Which redemption comes only through Jesus Christ the savior. Without exception, this is true for everyone, Jew or Gentile. Man is a sinner and must be saved through Christ. And this includes the Greeks at Mars Hill, Acts 17.

    Paul was not saying that the Greeks didn’t need salvation through Christ, on the contrary they were sinners, God commanded their repentance and conversion to Christ, verses 30-32.

    At Jerusalem, on the day of Pentecost, repentance and remissions of sins in his name preached:

    “...and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
    Then Peter said unto them, REPENT, AND BE BAPTIZED EVERY ONE OF YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost,” Acts 2:37,38

    I wondered how long before this thread would get hit by Catholics coming to bat for their Marxist Pope. Its here for all to see. And on the most conservative forum on the web no less.

    >I don’t know why a premillenialist such as yourself is so hostile to Jews and Judaism when most are so supportive.

    Without writing a book on this, trying to put this in a few words: I am a Historic Premillennialist - as opposed to Dispensationalist Premillennialist. It appears you may have me confused with the latter.

    “Historic,” meaning the eschatological beliefs represented in ancient writers such as Justin, Irenaeus, Tertullian, Hippolytus, Victorinus - before the rise of Roman Catholicism and their Amillennial system. Justin, etc., were post-trib and premillennialist. Pretrib Dispensationalism did not arise until the early 19th century.

    The Dispensationalist variety interprets the church and Israel very differently from Historic Premill.

    >I am not Jewish and am slated to rule over no one.

    That’s right, I forgot, you have said that you are a Noahide. Being Gentile, Judaism has no place for you in their worldwide theocracy? Sounds racist to me.

    >Quoting the “new testament” to someone who doesn’t accept it does no more good than quoting the koran or the “book of mormon” to people who don’t believe them.

    Key words there “accept” and “believe.” That is, after all, the difference between old and new covenants/testaments. The NT being based on acceptance and belief: acceptance and belief of Jesus Christ the promised Messiah of the Jews.

    You mentioned Islam and yourself disbelieving the NT, this puts both of you are in the same boat. Both Islam and Judaism (and Noahides, I suppose) claim to keep the law, yet the NT says you are all sinners: Christ said, when the Holy Spirit is come, he will reprove the world of sin...”Of sin, because they believe not on me,” John 16:7-9.

    You are leaving out Paul's concluding words to the Greeks at Areopagus.

    The times of this ignorance God winked at: BUT NOW COMMANDETH ALL MEN EVERYWHERE TO REPENT: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. Acts 17:30,31 (KJV)
