1677Re: Imaginary Messianic Prophecies in the NT?
- Jul 8, 2007A) Dude! It would seem some of us need to take a
chill pill. After all, patience is a virtue.
Perhaps I have a life OUTSIDE yahoo groups?
B) I think I said that Darby is the only resource
I have available to me OFF LINE, (that is to say,
on CD-ROM), which had anything worth reporting.
None of the other OFF LINE resources I have at my
disposal were of any value in this area.
C) Why would you say "I wish I could say I was
surprised"? Is your advice ignored often? Or am I
to assume you have had dealings with ME before,
so that it is well known to you that I often
ignore helpful advice?
D) Are we to understand the tone of your post to
be "Christ-like" given that you sign your posts
with "In Christ's service"? Maybe, since I seem
to recall Christ answering people quite sharply
when they asked something he didn't like having
asked, or when they answered in a way he didn't
like hearing. Here are some examples:
Matt 17:17 O faithless and perverse generation,
how long shall I be with you? how long shall I
Mark 8:17 Why reason ye, because ye have no bread?
perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye
your heart yet hardened? 18 Having eyes, see ye
not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not
Mark 8:21 And he said unto them, How is it that
ye do not understand?
Luke 9:41 And Jesus answering said, O faithless
and perverse generation, how long shall I be with
you, and suffer you?
Luke 9:55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and
said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.
So, yes, maybe answering with a sharp tongue for
a simple question IS what Jesus would do.
Or was that the point you were TRYING to convey
WITHOUT having to spell it out like I just did
