    Re: 2 Peter 2:1

    Re: The Essentials

    Disciple,

    Your explanation makes sense.

    In Peter's admonition to "make certain about His calling and choosing you", it seems like he is saying, "if you're doing the things (or bearing the...

    Re: The Essentials

    Why do you doubt your election? Are you saying that no one can have any kind of absolute assurance of salvation in this life? Trying to see what you're saying here....

    Re: Locusts of Revelation 9

    WB,

    These are some interesting notes that you have.

    I wonder if the period of '5 months' is a symbolic period representing the span of history between Christ's First & Second Advent?

    Well, it seems to me that Satan's deceptive powers are never completely curtailed between Christ's First and Second Advent. What I've been trying to figure out, in some feeble way, is how to...

    Locusts of Revelation 9

    Who are these locusts? I'm inclined to believe that they represent false teachers and doctrines that lead men and women astray, but what do you all think?

    I have no disagreement with your first statement, i.e., the difference between direct deception by Satan and natural unbelief.

    Well, according to Revelation 22:15, there won't be any dogs of the human kind!

    Wonder what anyone else thinks about the possible existence of animals in the new heavens and new earth?
