Isaiah 66:17 In the day of The Lord those believing they are upright by the law shall have their hypocrisy revealed.

For the Father hath put all things into the hands of His Son, Christ Jesus.

By fire and by the sword (the Spirit of God and the Word of God) The Lord will see to it that they which foolishly deny The Lord's power and omnipotence are consumed by the letter of the law.

Hi Steve, I believe that you described the narrow path to God's salvation perfectly. thank you

Matthew 7:14 "Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."

1 Corinthians Chapter 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal [must] put on immortality.

54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 O death, where [is] thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy victory? 56 The sting of death [is] sin; and the strength of sin [is] the law.

I truly believe that the cross of christ was not the end but the beginning we make the cross of

christ of none effect by laying aside what it was that was crucified , jesus over came in the garden when he said not my will but thy will be done . what went to the cross was for the purpose of fulfilling the prophesy what went to the cross was death itself... what we should be focused on is the resurrection three days was jonah in the belly of the whale three days was christ in the grave... when lazarus was asleep his sister mentioned to jesus that she knew that he would resurrect in the final resurrection what did jesus say he said i am the resurection.

be ye doers of the word and not hearers only decieving you own selves.

we all have our own cross to bare take up your cross and follow him.... your cross is dying out to self.... through the spirit, your cross is doing the will of god.


Yahawadah's comment on 2021-02-10 13:13:18:

Do not be confused and led astray. Swine is unclean and the most High have never said it is okay to eat it. This is a future prophecy. The most High does not change. He is the same yesterday, today, and forevermore. Do not be led astray by these men who do not know the bible.

2 Peter 3:16

as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are UNLEARNED and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own DESTRUCTION.

Behind the tree of knowledge (or so they thought) eating swine's flesh (believing all the lies and conspiracies).

WHAT CAN WE EAT or IS IT CLEAN's comment on 2020-08-02 22:25:00:

Romans 14:14

I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.

Romans 14:15

But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died.

John 6:27

Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

Comment: basically nothing is forbidden if you PRAY over your food before eating it.

I pray this often if I get take out food:

"Lord thank you for your provision and the blessing of food. I ask You to bless and sanctify it and make it healthy for me to eat. I receive this meal in the Name of Jesus. Amen!"

I picked this variety of verses to show that meat eaters and vegetarians can all eat what they want. With joy and appetite.

Also, There is spiritual meat that the Christian can ask the Lord to give to him. It has to do with deeper truth. Trust the Holy Spirit (your teacher who oversees your growth) to give you the meat.

In this day and age, I always ask the Lord to bless and sanctify the food. We don't know where it comes from, do we?



T's comment on 2020-08-02 20:28:13:

Swine being forbidden was a Mosaic Law, found in Leviticus, in the Old Testament.

In the New Testament we now refer to Mark 7:15 for your answer.

What we eat and goes through our stomach doesn't defile us. It is what comes out of us, from the heart, that defiles us.

So if you enjoy bacon have an extra piece!

Have you seen the videos of Coke being poured over raw pork? Quite gross. Just ensure you cook your pork thoroughly.


Regina Bryant's comment on 2020-08-02 15:19:53:

Iam so confused. If a Christian in this age eats swine,are they condemned>


David M.'s comment on 2020-07-18 18:02:06:

The pig and the mouse

Scientists study and alter both in their labs. And hide what they do. It's all being done to create a vaccination (a tree of health)

But it's an abomination what they do and want to do to us by making us take these vaccines.

Rich..the true church in the end times is the Church of God which Christ is the cornerstone and head of the church.....Christ is the living rock foundation of the Church of God


Ann's comment on 2014-10-14 11:36:14:

What point people are missing here is, in Lev 11 1 12 God gives us a diet of clean foods to put into Our bodies that God Himself created! The unclean like the pig The mouse the crabs,lions hawks are all scavengers They eat all the rotted dead things on the land an in the Sea and in the air. They are not healthy to put into Our bodies. And doesn 't 1 Cor 6 20 read For you are bought with a price therefore glorify God in your body.


Cathy's comment on 2013-04-04 21:12:14:

Christ says, "You will know them by their fruits." "If they speak not according to God's law, then there is no light in them." The true church of God is one that is going to read, line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little there a little, till the true messages of God are revealed, to the honest gospel searcher. One MUST ask for guidance from the HOLY SPIRIT when reading scripture. Spiritual things are Spiritually discerned. The Seventh-day Adventists has revealed the scriptures clearer to me, and more precise, with history backing it up, more than any other denomination I've known. They are among the few, that keep the Biblical Sabbath, the 7th day, as it says in Exodus 20:8; God judges us all for the light that we have, but it's up to us to search, with all our hearts, to learn Biblical truths. Our desirous, loving, and willing relationship with Christ is very important. He wants our hearts, not just our Biblical intelligence of His Word. God Bless!


rich's comment on 2013-03-19 18:25:09:

I am confused: I am told I will be consumed in hell for eating swine's flesh, drinking strong drink, hot drinks (caffeine; coffee, tea, etc..), smoking, or anything that does not reflect what Christ's example was on this earth. I must follow GOD'S commandments word for word with no deviation. Because no man has authority to change his law or its intent therefore why am I being pulled in every direction form Christian denominations, attempting to explain/justify why they are able to take the word out of context to appease themselves before the GOD. They love and the GOD that will one day accept or condemn their actions. What am I to believe or disbelieve, how is that God will reveal himself, his purpose, and plan he has in store for me; who really does teach only the truth? What is the true church in the end times? Please respond but RESPOND WITH TRUTH NOT CONDEMNING OTHER DENOMINATIONS BUT AS CHRIST...
