Why do Christians fail?  Why is it there are no perfect Christians?  Why did some of God's most dedicated men falter, and sometimes horribly?  After the flood experience, Noah got drunk;  after being the friend of God, Abraham lied more than once; David committed adultery and murder after close communion with His Lord; Peter, after great experiences with Christ, denied Him, not once or twice, but three times!  Paul was drawn back into the shackles of Judaism after rebuking Peter for the same offense.

What part did local churches play in the Supreme Court's decision on gay marriage?

Have the people who claim to be Christians been for or against such action?

"For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?"  1 Peter 4:17

You show them the acts 28 boundary with patience and deliberation using all the evidence you can muster. But after all that - NO! They just will not accept the truth that is glaringly obvious to all who have come to see and appreciate the revelation of "the Mystery".

The best students of prophecy are confused.  By all calculations, Jesus should have come by now.  Even for the unschooled, the year 2000 marked a milestone of something calamitous…yet nothing happened!  Is it like the scoffers said?

"And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation."  2 Peter 3:4

Peter's answer to this group referred back to Noah and the flood:

Eph 3:8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;

Eph 3:8 (TR) εμοι τω ελαχιστοτερω παντων των αγιων εδοθη η χαρις αυτη εν τοις εθνεσιν ευαγγελισασθαι τον ανεξιχνιαστον πλουτον του χριστου

The greek word translated "unsearchable" is the adjective ἀνεξιχνίαστος which is found here and in Rom. 11:33 where it is translated "past finding out".

The conclusion from this short survey is that John is looking back at Israel from the perspective that she had rejected her Messiah and then John uses well placed signs to show among other things that Jesus is Messiah and that believing "the world" in light of Israel's defection can have life through His name. This is not the perspective of the Revelation! Rather the Patmos vision is a translation into the time near during and after the day of the Lord.

Recently I listened to a 23 year old junior high school teacher speak of how drastic things had changed since she was in junior high…which was only 10 years ago! The changes of which this young teacher spoke were not good. She considered the students’ attitude much worse than 10 years ago. The same was said about the parents’ and school administration’s attitude. It doesn’t take a Greek scholar or seminary graduate to see that 2 Timothy 3:13 is taking place:

"But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived."

"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." 1 Thessalonians 5:18

What an odd scripture to chose in the times in which we live. Good is being called evil; right is being called wrong; sin is abounding on every hand… and we are to be thankful? There is probably more paganism, demonism and more devilment going on today than has been since America was formed. The big difference between America's first Thanksgiving and this year's is the fact that those first settlers who observed Thanksgiving knew that socialism would not work because they had tried it when first coming here. They knew that if success and living conditions improved, they would have to be part of the success and improvements. Times were hard and conditions were worse. They had lost half of the people who made the trip on the Mayflower by the end of their first year. It seemed nature and the environment were against them, yet they stopped to thank God. Isn't it ironic that with over 200 years of the greatest achievements and successes ever experienced by any people other than the nation who had a covenant with the Almighty God, the descendents of those first Americans now prefer existence above achievement and failure over success.{C}

The second coming has three phases, the appearing, the coming (parousia) to the clouds and the coming to the earth.

The mid-Acts position presupposes that with Paul came "The Mystery". That is there is little differentiation between Paul's Acts ministry and Post Acts ministry. There are some very heavy penalties for this mistake.
