C.H. Spurgeon

Sinners, let me address you with words of life; Jesus wants nothing from you, nothing whatsoever, nothing done, nothing felt; he gives both work and feeling. Ragged, penniless, just as you are, lost, forsaken, desolate, with no good feelings, and no good hopes, still Jesus comes to you, and in these words of pity he addresses you, "Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out."

Hole Lotta’ Shaking Going On!

A friend of mine sent me a link to a blog post entitled, Holy Hole!

Apparently, the Muslims (or at least some) are blaming the Israelis for the “5.3-magnitude earthquake,” claiming they are “digging tunnels in the area that undermine the stability in the area of the Al-Aqsa mosque.” The Islamic Movement “urged Islamic states to take action to stop Israeli excavations in the area.”

It is interesting at the blog to note “the hole was a meter deep, two meters long and meter and a half wide” compared to a 1927 shot of Jerusalem.

Scripture does call for the rebuilding of the Jewish temple:

Revelation 11
1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

I have heard and read, but not really intensive study, that the Jewish temple could be rebuilt near or next to the Dome of the Rock, for the Dome of the Rock would merely be inside “the court which is without the temple” that is left out and “given unto the Gentiles.”

Got some insight further into these matters, share it!

Hey, Silver.

I'm just a passer-by, but the Scripture does say in 2nd Thess 2:3-4,
"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."

So apparently, this guy has to sit in the temple before "that day shall come." I guess that would indicate that there will be a temple. :)

Peace. --Jacob

John Bunyan

To be saved is to be preserved in the faith to the end. 'He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.' (Mt. 24:13) Not that perseverance is an accident in Christianity, or a thing performed by human industry; they that are saved 'are kept by the power of God, through faith unto salvation.' (1 Pet. 1: 3-6) But perseverance is absolutely necessary to the complete saving of the soul…. He that goeth to sea with a purpose to arrive at Spain, cannot arrive there if he be drowned by the way; wherefore perseverance is absolutely necessary to the saving of the soul.
