BBC Asteroid Impact Simulation End Of The World Predictions
A huge asteroid with a diameter of 500 Kilometer is going to impact on Earth! Destination: Pacific Ocean. The asteroid impact peels 10 kilometers crust off the surface of Earth. The resulting shockwave travels at hypersonic speed. The debris from the impact is blasted to the lower orbit of Earth, and they returns to destroy everything on the planet. The firestorm created by the asteroid impact encircles the Earth,
vaporizing everything in our world. Within 24 hours of asteroid impact, the entire Earth will be uninhabitable. The researchers have found that this scenario has happened 6 times in Earth's history.
WHAT DOES THE BIBLE Really TEACH
I almost stepped on this toy. Helloé Hello ma'am, We're bible students in your neighborhood canvassing with an important message. We found this toy outside of your front door, is this yoursé Actually it's my sons. Thanks. Do you think it's important for children to be raised with good moralsé Yes. Well perhaps we could interest you in a free home bible studyé
This little book is called 'What does the bible really teaché' published by the Watchtower Society. When Jehovah's Witnesses come to your door they are given the following objective, and that is to get you engaged in a free home bible study. The only problem with this study is that instead of studying the bible you end up studying this book instead. If this book agrees with the bible than good.Let us see if it does. On page 10 it says: Genesis 6:17 says: Genesis 19:24 reads: Isaiah 45:7 says:
And if you believe Satan is behind every kind of disaster listen to Revelation 20:79: I doubt that Satan sent fire on his own forces, but rather it was YHVH God. On page 13 it reads: For an organization that promotes God's name so much and has no problem opposing tradition, it is strange that they pronounce God's name as 'Jehovah'. Anyone familiar with the Hebrew alphabet knows there is no letter that makes the sound of the English letter 'J'. In other publications the Watchtower admits that Jehovah is merely an accepted English pronunciation so they follow suit with this tradition. On page 16 it says: Indeed we can grow close to God by learning about him, but the translation of John 17:3 they provide from the Watchtowers translation of the bible called The New World Translation, is wrong.
The Watchtower Society publishes another book called 'The Kingdom Interlinear of the Greek Scriptures' which shows the Greek they used for their translation and the corresponding English translation. When one looks at the Greek of John 17:3 they will notice that any Greek equivalent to the words 'taking', and 'in' are absent from the passage. A common Greek equivalent for the word 'taking' is 'lambano'. The Greek equivalent for the word 'in' is 'en' which is pointed out in the Watchtowers interlinear. The explanation is that the words 'taking' and 'in' are implied from the word 'ginosko' translated as 'knowledge' by the Society. The interesting thing about 'ginosko' is that it is a root word for the word 'gnosis' which means knowledge. 'Ginosko' means know, while 'gnosis' means knowledge, and a comparison of how these words are most often translated in any translation should make this obvious. The question is why would the Watchtower Society translate John 17:3 the way they didé
Perhaps they disliked the idea that people could be saved through a personal relationship between themselves and God apart from the Society. Instead they paint Jesus' words as a process which requires obedience to the Society. On page 29 it reads: Here it says how God had told Adam and Eve that they would eventually die if they disobeyed him. It has Genesis 3:1719 listed but this is not where God gave Adam and Eve their warning. God's warning is found in Genesis 2:17 which says: Adam and Eve did not physically die the day they ate the fruit, but they did die spiritually in that they were separated from the presence of God. Some may reply that the death was merely physical but there's a problem with this reply.
First in Romans 5:12 it says: All mortals have sinned, but all have not physically died as it says this in Hebrews 11:5: When Enoch sinned he was spiritually dead, but because of his faith in God he was translated so as not to see physical death. Ephesians 2:1 mentions this spiritual death where it reads: On page 36 it says: The thing that Jesus said that day was not quoted in it's entirety. The full quote from the New World Translation is: Some interesting things to notice about the Watchtowers rendering is that a comma is added to the text after the word 'today', and the next word 'you' is capitalized.
The Gospel of The Kingdom
There's this beautiful poem it's in thebook of Isaiah the city of Jerusalem has just been destroyed by Babylon a greatkingdom in the north in all of these Jewish people they've been sent awayinto exile but a few remained in the city and they are left wondering whatjust happened has our God abandoned us right because Jerusalem was supposed tobe the city where God would reign over the world to bring peace and blessing toeveryone now Isaiah had been saying that Jerusalem's destruction was a messof Israel's own making they had turned away from their God become corrupt and sotheir city and their temple were
destroyed everything seems lost. But the poem goes on there is a watchman on the city walls and far out on the hills we see amessenger and he's running towards the city. He's running and shouting quot;Good news!quot;and Isaiah says how beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of those whobring good news. Beautiful feeté Yes, the feet are beautifulbecause they're carrying a beautiful message. What's the messageé That despiteJerusalem's destruction Israel's God still reigns as King and that GodHimself is going to one day return to this city, take up his throne andbring peace. And the Watchmen sing for joy
because of the good news that their Godstill reigns. Now in the New Testament we find this same phrase quot;the good newsquot;. It'sthe Greek word Euangelion and it's also sometimes translated with the wordgospel. Yeah, so when Christians say, quot;Do you believe the gospeléquot; they mean do youbelieve the news but not just any news in the Bible this phrase is always aboutthe announcement of the reign of a new king and in the New Testament Gospelsuse this phrase to summarize all of Jesus's teachings they say that he wentabout proclaiming the good news of God's kingdom. So Jesus saw himself as amessenger bringing the news that God
reigns. Yes, but the way that he describedGod's reign surprised everybody I mean thinkpowerful successful Kingdom it needs to be strong able to impose its will, able todefeat its enemy, but Jesus said the greatest person in God's kingdom was the weakestthe one who loves and who serves the poor and he said that you live underGod's reign when you respond to evil by loving your enemies and forgiving themin seeking peace this is an upside down Kingdom now jesus also said that thiskingdom was arriving with him so for example is this really interesting storywhere there's a highranking Roman
officer and he comes to Jesus begginghim to heal his servant and he even calls Jesus is Lord acknowledging thatJesus is his authority jesus prays this meant for recognizing what no one elseyet had that not only was Jesus announcing God's kingdom he was insertedthe word gets out that this Jewish man from Galilee is talking and acting likehe's the king of Israel is appointing twelve disciples which are an image ofisrael's twelve tribes is healing people for giving people their sins in all ofthis threatened israel's leaders that theyfinally decided to have him
Jesus let them which is a weird thing todo if you're trying to become king that's right but for Jesus this is whathad to happen Jesus saw the since the devastation ofHis people Israel is just the entire human how all he has rebelled against Godresulting in the tragedy and devastation of World so how is God going to bringhis reign over such a work Jesus believed it would be through an actsacrificial of his enemies
