have you ever made a false assumption?

    Jeramiposted 7 years ago

    I Know that I have. We all have and still do.
         Some people lead us into them for their own purpose.
         Assume ...ass.(out of).u.(and). me ... We all make assumptions.
         For instance we all ass.u.me that the 69 weeks unto the Messiah mentioned in Daniel 9:25
         Jesus coming again mentioned in Matthew 24.
         The saints being caught up in the air
         Jesus standing on Mt sion before the Harvest.

                   We assume that all four of these events mentioned in scripture are all four describing ONE event!!!
                    Is that scriptural ????
              OR  IS  THAT THE  GENERAL  ASSUMPTION ???
           I will stay out of this ( I promise) because I "THINK"  that I already "KNOW"
    At least think about this in your own time and at your own leasure.

    Wait, is this going to turn into something akin to this?

    (Abridged)

    Jerami:  Hi!  I'm Jerami!  I have my own sets of beliefs, and I believe I'm right and everyone else is wrong.  However, I'll ask people for their opinion, so I can ignore them.

    Forumer: Hi, I disagree with you, do you want to know why?

    Jerami:  No.  Now get lost, I'm busy ignoring everybody.


    Forumer:  Even though you have your mind made up, I shall give you my views about why I think you may be wrong.

    Jerami:  ...sorry, what?  I was too busy ignoring you.


    Jerami:  La la la,  I'm right, and you all are wrong!

    Forumer:  Suddenly I realize that you won't listen to anyone!  Now I shall leave the forums and write a gazillion hubs about this!

          I do believe that the coming of the Messiah the Prince did come as Gabriel said that he would.  Also Jesus did come again when he said that he would. Two events, the rapture is another diffrent event and Jesus standing on the mt sion yet another event then the 1000 years and then the last battle.  I could be wrong and maybe not. The point is to not assume interpretation.

              Many years ago I read a series of books by Jane adams that described unknown realities that spoke a lot about that concept. to be honest I am not sure, that may not be as much of a contradiction with scripture as some think

      Her name is Jane Adams she wrote them around 1950. They were found in the ocult section of the Library. They didn't seen at the time to be that contradicting to scripture but the church thought so.  And Tantrum I agree with you though some people that chaim to stand by faith on the bible I will push them a little to actually read it with out their own interpretations in controll

      Jeramiposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Good morning have had my coffee and have a few minutes before i'm off to work. That was so long ago, one was "The Unknown Reality" I think. She wrote 5 or 6 I think. They were about all kinds of issues Dreams, what they meant, how to consciously get into them and be a participant. She said that there is an alternate reality going on all around us that we can not see, kinda like the spirit world that the bible talks about. I found all of her subjects interesting. I think that the most important thing that I learned is that we should at least learn about  other points of view before we quickly reject them and remain stuck in the our own "little" concept of reality. I found the books about the dream world most interesting and perhaps the most dangerous. Well sun is about up and I gotta go to work. Later.

        goodfriendiamposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        I most definitely agree with the woman, about alternate reality, but I would like to think of it more as it doesn't exist, (feels like it exist, sometimes so intense), and this leads us to do the things we do. for it is all the empty words we have been feed, meaningless, building an imagine r thick wall that we "feel" can't be penetrated.  Having no clue how to escape the dream like state, we fight it, or we conform to it, not understanding that we just need to stand in the face of it, not moving to run or conform, and let the falseness of it Know (gently I might add) that we know it is not reality and watch as it goes away. I would like to read her books on dreams. Well these are just my thoughts and opinions. Hope you can sifter what I wrote...smile...sometimes I can get on a roll. thanks

    Actually Jerami, sometimes I can't even figure out what you're talking about.  I mean, for example, you claim that Christ has already returned, but haven't answered why this world has always been a piece of sh**, and if you have it's been really vague.  Then when someone offers you counter proof, you conveniently ignore it; or else you twist it so that it fits your own views.

    And now you post this thread, and it looks like another "trap".  See how many responses you can get, see how many of them you can 'ignore'.

    I also hope that you don't have the mindset of, "I'm 60 years old, and by default I'm smarter than people here, so that means I'm right, and everyone else is wrong."

    1. tantrum profile image61
      tantrumposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        He's not saying that at all! And if you think you're the 'smart' here, you got a lot to learn. You can begin with not being so proud and full of contemp for others, and maybe some sensible person will listen to you...sometime.

      I really mean that sometimes I am a feeble minded old fart that is so slow on this thing that sometimes a whole page might go by and I just did not see a question. sometimes I just can't keep up when the thread goes so fast. sometimes I will find comments that I missed and do comment on later. Your question concerning why have there not been a 1000 years of peace on earth?  I will have to check that verse that refers to beating the weapons down  making plow shears and see which event that is being referred too. Been a long time since I have read it, or where that is? I thought it referred to after the new Jerusalem comes down???  I could be wrong.  I also believe that the scriptures say that the saints reign with Jesus (in heaven), I do not believe that Jesus comes to the earth to reign with the saints. But If heaven is on the earth I think it will be in a different dimension or an unknown reality such as the author that we were talking about last night says in her books.  But I know nothing except that I know  what I believe and that too is subject to change. Again I did not ignore anyone or disrespect anyone on perpose. I type very slow and have to sp ck everything and I fall way behing the conversations. Saying I am old is  an apology not a declaration.
