Who Said That!?
What is wrong with these statements regarding the Second Advent of our Lord and Christ Jesus brethren? Speak, and testify.
When is it too late to repent? Will some have a second-chance at salvation from the wrath of God? When is it too late for the day of salvation brethren? Surely you know, and the following statements do not reflect the Truth do they? Who do you think said these things?
Israel’s repentance will come because they look to Jesus, the One whom they rejected and crucified, in faith at the Second Advent….
While their spiritual eyes are up and they’re thinking about God and how He has delivered them, they’re going to see God incarnate, Jesus, coming.
And then Israel is going to receive salvation, … God’s going to wash the nation from its sin.
First, they’re going to cry “My Lord and my God,” when they see Jesus. They’re going to realize it was God they pierced. And then God’s going to turn the fountain loose and wash them and pour out His Spirit.
Be concerned about the souls of men!!! I welcome your comments. Answer coming soon.
Shot in the dark…John MacArthur?
You googled, didn’t you? Man, that’s cheating, lol
I was going to guess Macarthur too. Partly because he has been such a common theme around here these days 😉
When did Johnny Mac make that statement? Not surprising that any dispensationalist would think that, but other that John Haggee I don’t a public figure who speak it out loud. I do know a non-ruling “elder” in a local Presbyterian church who thinks ALL people get a second chance at “accepting Jesus” after they die! His wife teaches the Alpha Course.
I guessed MacArthur too!! All without the aid of Google or a safety net! ;))
Who said this: “You can pray for 6 hours a day, and your heart will remain the same.”
Sounds heretical to me. As a Christian, if I’m praying sincerely 6 hours a day my heart is getting closer to Christ and CANNOT remain the same.
Oh, did I take that out of context? I’m sorry. You’re right.
Please don’t take JMAC out of context. I happened to come across this site. Sad, sad, sad. Maybe if you do pray for 6 hours God Will change your heart.
I said it, and meant it as well. It’s true. The Pharisees were men of prayer weren’t they? It didn’t change their hearts did it? Of course not. Prayer never transforms the heart, only regeneration does that along with a clearer view of the cross.
Wow. I am not theologically schooled, just a Sunday school teacher in a small rural church. I was reading through the J Mac commentary when teaching through Matthew. I have always been thankful for Mac’s teaching, but I remember being disturbed at the way he described the kingdom…as though Christ’s death was “plan B”…the original plan being for the Jews to receive Jesus as Messiah and set up His earthly kingdom at that time. It seemed to strike at God’s sovereignty…does He have a plan B? Can His will be thwarted, or does His success depend on man’s cooperation? That really bothered me. It seemed incongruous with the rest of his teaching.
Dispensationalism views the existence of the Church as ‘plan B’ since the setting up of the kingdom is viewd as ‘rejected’ by Israel. And you should be comforted that you were disturbed by it. For the record, God has no ‘plan b’. More to come soon. Thanks for stopping by!
One more thought….Manfred, did I understand you to say that J Mac’s wife teaches the Alpha course? That would be really upsetting.
Jonathan – it’s not Johnny Mac’s wife that I know of; it’s the “non-ruling elder” friend of mine, whose wife teaches that heresy.
Ah, Sorry Manfred. Reading too fast. Thanks!
And thank you, Joel for this blog!
You’re welcome brother! God bless.
