    Yes our early SDAs were incorrect. on some levels as to their Theology. Yes we are not perfect today as to our Theology. This is one reason why on most issues we SDAs have a range of viewpoints on many aspects of doctrine.

    (moved to new thread) Persecution within the church

    Certain groups were picked for certain tasks in the Bible. Males were called out for a number of things. For the priesthood, Levites were called out. I am quite sure King Uzziah could swing an incense censer just fine, but his disobedience left him living in a several house afflicted with leprosy for the rest of his life. Being able to do something is not the question, but does the Bible support it. Of course, you can twist it around to say whatever you want.

    When will Iran attack our (US) fleet?

    HCH, the ability to destroy a drone is a long way from the ability to destroy a combat aircraft. We have been working on such, and more, for decades. This is nothing new. it simply is the latest release of previously classified information.

    When will Iran attack our (US) fleet?

    HCH: Your quotation comes from a statement that EGW made about people at the time of the First Advent of Christ. It was not made about people who attempt to predict the time that events will take place related to the Second Advent of Christ. The witness of Scripture is clear that people who do such are false prophets, regardless of whether or not they claim to be a prophet. While you may not claim to be a prophet, your claims have repeatedly been demonstrated to be false. The fundamental problem actually is not with what you say will happen. Sometimes you will be correct. Probability math tells us that will sometime happen. Sooner or later someone will die. Sooner or later other things will happen. We may, or may not, go to war with Iran. The fundamental problem with your predictions is with your claim that the Bible predicted such. It is that which demonstrates your basic ignorance as to how to understand the Bible and what the Bible says about End Time events.

    Lesson 9 - Creation: Genesis As Foundation, Part 2

    Memory Text: Psalm 19:1 English Standard Version The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Sunday – A Flat Earth? Revelation 7:1 Christian Standard Bible After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, restraining the four winds of the earth so that no wind could blow on the earth or on the sea or on any tree. Revelation 20:7-8 Good News Translation 7 After the thousand years are over, Satan will be set loose from his prison, 8 and he will go out to deceive the nations scattered over the whole world, that is, Gog and Magog. Satan will bring them all together for battle, as many as the grains of sand on the seashore. Job 26:7-10 Common English Bible He stretched the North over chaos, hung earth over nothing; 8 wrapped up water in his clouds, yet they didn’t burst out below; 9 hid the face of the full moon, spreading his cloud over it; 10 traced a circle on the water’s surface, at the limit of light and darkness. Isaiah 40:21-22 English Standard Version 21 Do you not know? Do you not hear? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? 22 It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in; Monday – Creation in Ancient Literature Genesis 1:1-2:4 New Century Version 1 In the beginning God created the sky and the earth. 2 The earth was empty and had no form. Darkness covered the ocean, and God’s Spirit was moving over the water. 3 Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, so he divided the light from the darkness. 5 God named the light “day” and the darkness “night.” Evening passed, and morning came. This was the first day. 6 Then God said, “Let there be something to divide the water in two.” 7 So God made the air and placed some of the water above the air and some below it. 8 God named the air “sky.” Evening passed, and morning came. This was the second day. 9 Then God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered together so the dry land will appear.” And it happened. 10 God named the dry land “earth” and the water that was gathered together “seas.” God saw that this was good. 11 Then God said, “Let the earth produce plants—some to make grain for seeds and others to make fruits with seeds in them. Every seed will produce more of its own kind of plant.” And it happened. 12 The earth produced plants with grain for seeds and trees that made fruits with seeds in them. Each seed grew its own kind of plant. God saw that all this was good. 13 Evening passed, and morning came. This was the third day. 14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the sky to separate day from night. These lights will be used for signs, seasons, days, and years. 15 They will be in the sky to give light to the earth.” And it happened. 16 So God made the two large lights. He made the brighter light to rule the day and made the smaller light to rule the night. He also made the stars. 17 God put all these in the sky to shine on the earth, 18 to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. God saw that all these things were good. 19 Evening passed, and morning came. This was the fourth day.20 Then God said, “Let the water be filled with living things, and let birds fly in the air above the earth.” 21 So God created the large sea animals and every living thing that moves in the sea. The sea is filled with these living things, with each one producing more of its own kind. He also made every bird that flies, and each bird produced more of its own kind. God saw that this was good. 22 God blessed them and said, “Have many young ones so that you may grow in number. Fill the water of the seas, and let the birds grow in number on the earth.” 23 Evening passed, and morning came. This was the fifth day.24 Then God said, “Let the earth be filled with animals, each producing more of its own kind. Let there be tame animals and small crawling animals and wild animals, and let each produce more of its kind.” And it happened. 25 So God made the wild animals, the tame animals, and all the small crawling animals to produce more of their own kind. God saw that this was good. 26 Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image and likeness. And let them rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the tame animals, over all the earth, and over all the small crawling animals on the earth.” 27 So God created human beings in his image. In the image of God he created them. He created them male and female. 28 God blessed them and said, “Have many children and grow in number. Fill the earth and be its master. Rule over the fish in the sea and over the birds in the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” 29 God said, “Look, I have given you all the plants that have grain for seeds and all the trees whose fruits have seeds in them. They will be food for you. 30 I have given all the green plants as food for every wild animal, every bird of the air, and every small crawling animal.” And it happened. 31 God looked at everything he had made, and it was very good. Evening passed, and morning came. This was the sixth day. 2:1 So the sky, the earth, and all that filled them were finished. 2 By the seventh day God finished the work he had been doing, so he rested from all his work. 3 God blessed the seventh day and made it a holy day, because on that day he rested from all the work he had done in creating the world. 4 This is the story of the creation of the sky and the earth. When the Lord God first made the earth and the sky, Tuesday – Genesis Versus Paganism Genesis 1:14-19 God’s Word Translation 14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the sky to separate the day from the night. They will be signs and will mark religious festivals, days, and years. 15 They will be lights in the sky to shine on the earth.” And so it was. 16 God made the two bright lights: the larger light to rule the day and the smaller light to rule the night. He also made the stars. 17 God put them in the sky to give light to the earth, 18 to dominate the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. God saw that it was good. 19 There was evening, then morning—a fourth day. Genesis 2:7 New English Translation 7 The Lord God formed the man from the soil of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. Genesis 2:18-24 Modern English Version 18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone. I will make him a helper suitable for him.” 19 Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. Whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. 20 The man gave names to all the livestock, to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him. 21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept. Then He took one of his ribs and closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man, He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. 23 Then Adam said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she will be called Woman, for she was taken out of Man.” 24 Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother and be joined to his wife, and they will become one flesh. Wednesday – Creation and Time Genesis 5 New Living Translation This is the written account of the descendants of Adam. When God created human beings, he made them to be like himself. 2 He created them male and female, and he blessed them and called them “human.” 3 When Adam was 130 years old, he became the father of a son who was just like him—in his very image. He named his son Seth. 4 After the birth of Seth, Adam lived another 800 years, and he had other sons and daughters. 5 Adam lived 930 years, and then he died. 6 When Seth was 105 years old, he became the father of Enosh. 7 After the birth of] Enosh, Seth lived another 807 years, and he had other sons and daughters. 8 Seth lived 912 years, and then he died.9 When Enosh was 90 years old, he became the father of Kenan. 10 After the birth of Kenan, Enosh lived another 815 years, and he had other sons and daughters. 11 Enosh lived 905 years, and then he died. 12 When Kenan was 70 years old, he became the father of Mahalalel. 13 After the birth of Mahalalel, Kenan lived another 840 years, and he had other sons and daughters. 14 Kenan lived 910 years, and then he died. 15 When Mahalalel was 65 years old, he became the father of Jared. 16 After the birth of Jared, Mahalalel lived another 830 years, and he had other sons and daughters. 17 Mahalalel lived 895 years, and then he died.18 When Jared was 162 years old, he became the father of Enoch. 19 After the birth of Enoch, Jared lived another 800 years, and he had other sons and daughters. 20 Jared lived 962 years, and then he died.21 When Enoch was 65 years old, he became the father of Methuselah. 22 After the birth of Methuselah, Enoch lived in close fellowship with God for another 300 years, and he had other sons and daughters. 23 Enoch lived 365 years, 24 walking in close fellowship with God. Then one day he disappeared, because God took him.25 When Methuselah was 187 years old, he became the father of Lamech. 26 After the birth of Lamech, Methuselah lived another 782 years, and he had other sons and daughters. 27 Methuselah lived 969 years, and then he died. 28 When Lamech was 182 years old, he became the father of a son. 29 Lamech named his son Noah, for he said, “May he bring us relief from our work and the painful labor of farming this ground that the Lord has cursed.” 30 After the birth of Noah, Lamech lived another 595 years, and he had other sons and daughters. 31 Lamech lived 777 years, and then he died. 32 After Noah was 500 years old, he became the father of Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Genesis 11 New Century Version At this time the whole world spoke one language, and everyone used the same words. 2 As people moved from the east, they found a plain in the land of Babylonia and settled there. 3 They said to each other, “Let’s make bricks and bake them to make them hard.” So they used bricks instead of stones, and tar instead of mortar. 4 Then they said to each other, “Let’s build a city and a tower for ourselves, whose top will reach high into the sky. We will become famous. Then we will not be scattered over all the earth.” 5 The Lord came down to see the city and the tower that the people had built. 6 The Lord said, “Now, these people are united, all speaking the same language. This is only the beginning of what they will do. They will be able to do anything they want. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not be able to understand each other.” 8 So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 The place is called Babel[a] since that is where the Lord confused the language of the whole world. So the Lord caused them to spread out from there over the whole world. 10 This is the family history of Shem. Two years after the flood, when Shem was 100 years old, his son Arphaxad was born. 11 After that, Shem lived 500 years and had other sons and daughters. 12 When Arphaxad was 35 years old, his son Shelah was born. 13 After that, Arphaxad lived 403 years and had other sons and daughters. 14 When Shelah was 30 years old, his son Eber was born. 15 After that, Shelah lived 403 years and had other sons and daughters. 16 When Eber was 34 years old, his son Peleg was born. 17 After that, Eber lived 430 years and had other sons and daughters. 18 When Peleg was 30 years old, his son Reu was born. 19 After that, Peleg lived 209 years and had other sons and daughters. 20 When Reu was 32 years old, his son Serug was born. 21 After that, Reu lived 207 years and had other sons and daughters. 22 When Serug was 30 years old, his son Nahor was born. 23 After that, Serug lived 200 years and had other sons and daughters. 24 When Nahor was 29 years old, his son Terah was born. 25 After that, Nahor lived 119 years and had other sons and daughters. 26 After Terah was 70 years old, his sons Abram, Nahor, and Haran were born. 27 This is the family history of Terah. Terah was the father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran. Haran was the father of Lot. 28 While his father, Terah, was still alive, Haran died in Ur in Babylonia, where he was born. 29 Abram and Nahor both married. Abram’s wife was named Sarai, and Nahor’s wife was named Milcah. She was the daughter of Haran, who was the father of both Milcah and Iscah. 30 Sarai was not able to have children. 31 Terah took his son Abram, his grandson Lot (Haran’s son), and his daughter-in-law Sarai (Abram’s wife) and moved out of Ur of Babylonia. They had planned to go to the land of Canaan, but when they reached the city of Haran, they settled there. 32 Terah lived to be 205 years old, and then he died in Haran. 1 Timothy 1:4 God’s Word Translation and occupying themselves with myths and endless genealogies. These myths and genealogies raise a lot of questions rather than promoting God’s plan, which centers in faith. Titus 3:9 Common English Bible Avoid stupid controversies, genealogies, and fights about the Law, because they are useless and worthless. Thursday – Creation in Scripture Matthew 19:4-5 Common English Bible 4 Jesus answered, “Haven’t you read that at the beginning the creator made them male and female? 5 And God said, ‘Because of this a man should leave his father and mother and be joined together with his wife, and the two will be one flesh.’ Mark 10:6-9 English Standard Version 6 But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ 7 ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, 8 and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. 9 What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” Luke 11:50-51 Contemporary English Version 50 You people living today will be punished for all the prophets who have been murdered since the beginning of the world. 51 This includes every prophet from the time of Abel to the time of Zechariah, who was murdered between the altar and the temple. You people will certainly be punished for all of this. John 1:1-3 New International Reader’s Version In the beginning, the Word was already there. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 All things were made through him. Nothing that has been made was made without him. Acts 14:15 Modern English Version Men, why are you doing this? We also are men, of like nature with you, preaching to you to turn from these vain things to the living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and everything that is in them Romans 1:20 New Living Translation For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God 2 Corinthians 4:6 Holman Christian Standard Bible For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God Ephesians 3:9 Christian Standard Bible and to shed light for all about the administration of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things. Ephesians 3:9 SDA BIBLE COMMENTARY Through the gospel the whole human family, Gentiles and Jews, was to see the purposes of God.

    6 Things You Didn't Know About The Golden Gate Bridge_2 On May 27, 1937, the Golden Gate Bridge connecting San Francisco and Marin County, California, opened to the public after five years of construction. Here are 6 fascinating facts you probably didn't know about the Golden Gate Bridge… The Bridge is Painted "International Orange" The Navy was initially concerned about visibility for passing ships in foggy conditions, and pressed for black and yellow stripes to be painted on the Golden Gate Bridge. The Army Air Corps pushed for a more festive, candy-cane combination of red and white stripes to make the bridge more noticeable from the air. Ultimately, however, the architects decided on the reddish-orange color you see today after being inspired by the basic red primer coated on the steel beams when they arrived in San Francisco. The official color is named "International Orange" and is the same color used by NASA for astronaut spacesuits. The Golden Gate Bridge Broke Records When it was built, the Golden Gate Bridge spanned 4,200 feet and staked its claim as the longest suspension bridge in the world. The bridge held this record until 1964 when it was finally surpassed by the Verrazzano Bridge in New York City. Now, the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge in Japan holds the coveted title. It is The Top Suicide Location in The World In August 1937, three months after the Golden Gate Bridge opened, H.B. Wobber became the first of more than 1,500 people to commit suicide by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. That’s an average of one person less than every three weeks. There are 11 crisis counseling telephones on the bridge that connect to trained suicide prevention counselors, and plans to build a net under the span as a suicide deterrent are being considered. It’s The 9th “Most Instagrammed” Attraction in The United States The Golden Gate Bridge was tagged in over 2 million pictures on Instagram, making it the 9th most popular US destination on the app. Disneyland, another iconic California attraction, came in on top with over 8 million tagged posts. Over 1 Billion People Have Used the Golden Gate Bridge In February 1985, the one-billionth car was recorded and the driver was even given a hard hat and a case of champagne to celebrate the occasion. The bridge reports that 112,000 vehicles cross it every day. You Can Tell The Weather By Looking at The Bridge The construction of the Golden Gate Bridge allows it to expand and contract with the weather, so you can eyeball the day’s temperature just by looking at the bridge. The deck can either fall or rise by up to 16 feet, depending on how warm it is. There's just one problem with using that system to decide if you need a sweater, though: the deck is always about two hours behind the actual weather due to the thermal mass of the bridge.

    5 Things You Didn't Know About Sonia Sotomayor On May 26, 2009, President Barack Obama nominated Federal Appeals Judge Sonia Sotomayor to be the first Hispanic justice on the Supreme Court. Here are five things you probably didn’t know about Justice Sotomayor... Justice Sotomayor Saved Baseball Justice Sotomayor is from the South Bronx, so it isn’t surprising that she is a big fan of the New York Yankees and baseball. In 1995 she ended a 232-day long baseball strike, ruling against the owners in favor of the players. Some say Sotomayor "saved baseball" after ending a dispute that could have ruined the sport for good. In 2009, she even threw out the first pitch at a Yankees game as part of their celebration in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month. She Wanted To Be Nancy Drew It was as a child that Sotomayor became intrigued by the law. According to an interview she gave with NPR, one of Sotomayor's main inspirations as a kid was fictional star detective Nancy Drew. "When I was young I wanted to be a detective, like Nancy Drew," she said. Justice Sonia Sotomayor didn't become a teen detective. Instead, she made history. Her First Judicial Nomination Came From A Republican According to CNN, Sotomayor spent the first 13 years of her legal career as a lawyer in first the public and then the private sector. In 1992, she received her first judicial appointment from the president, to the US District Court in the Southern District of New York. The president at that time was not a Democrat. She was appointed to the U.S. District Court by President George H. W. Bush. Perry Mason Inspired Her To Be a Judge According to Biography.com, there was a specific moment when Sotomayor decided that she was going to be a judge, and it happened while she was watching Perry Mason, a legal drama from the 1950s and 1960s. She watched as a prosecutor said that he didn't mind losing if the defendant was actually innocent, and then she realized that "if that was the prosecutor's job, then the guy who made the decision to dismiss the case was the judge. That was what I was going to be." She Has Accomplished a Number of Firsts Sotomayor was the New York Southern District’s youngest judge as well as the first federal judge in New York who was Hispanic. She was also the first woman who was Puerto Rican that served as a U.S. federal court judge. Upon her appointment as an associate justice to the U.S. Supreme Court by President Barack Obama, she became the first Latina and Hispanic Justice to take a seat on the bench.

    Well, it looks like you are very satisfied with what you posted; but it doesn't look like you have "proven" anything at all here, except, perhaps, in a small/partial context how that Adventists have historically had variations of a number of doctrines. However, your post reflects a poor example of "Bible study" and of officially held doctrines of Adventists; both now and in the past. What I am saying here for this topic is that, according to scripture, everyone needs to start paying more attention to "the everlasting gospel" as in the three angel's message of Rev 14, and I am trying to point out that there should be more emphasis on Christ, instead of "the beast." THAT is what this topic is about, NOT the stuff you are dredging up from who knows where. I am very confident that all of the Adventists beliefs can and do stand on scripture alone, no EGW needed, yet all you want to do is keep talking about her. Are you a closet admirer of her? If we were to talk about this topic in a balanced way, one of the first things Christians should be doing is to protest the "Jesus isn't enough" doctrine of "Mary" as taught by The Romanist "Church." Mary being what I referred to above as "a suite of doctrines," that make a laughing stock of Christ's ministry, and ruining lives everywhere. I have talked at length with one former Roman Catholic who feels her life was ruined by "Mary" stuff, and she left that church when I showed her that "Jesus is good enough." NO EGW was needed. And thats what the three angel's message is about. Jesus is enough. Nothing is needed to supplement, assist, or improve the ministry and work of Christ. NOTHING. Lets please, stay on topic. This is about "the everlasting gospel" as depicted in Rev 14, and many other places in scripture. THIS is what Adventists believe:

    5 Things You Didn't Know About The Oprah Winfrey Show_2 On May 25, 2011, "The Oprah Winfrey Show" aired its final broadcast, ending a 25-year run that won multiple awards over the years. Here are five things you probably didn’t know about “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” Roger Ebert Convinced Oprah Winfrey to Sign a Syndication Deal Oprah Winfrey and Roger Ebert went on a couple of dates early in her career, and although their romance never blossomed, something great did come out of the pairing. On Oprah's 20th anniversary special she revealed—for the first time—that Roger Ebert was the person who convinced her to go into syndication…while they were on a date! Naturally, Roger took Oprah to a movie on their first date, and then he treated her to dinner at Hamburger Hamlet. According to Winfrey, Ebert jotted down on a napkin how much money she could make, to which she replied, "Done deal!" Her Interview With Michael Jackson is The Most Watched Interview in Television History On February 10, 1993, Oprah sat down with Michael Jackson for what would be the most-watched interview in television history. The unprecedented live event drew a worldwide audience of 90 million people. Barbara Walters' interview with Monica Lewinsky came in second with 74 million viewers, while The Richard Nixon interview by David Frost came in a distant third with 45 million viewers. She Was Sued By a Group Of Texas Cattlemen In 1996, Winfrey admitted that she did not eat hamburgers because of the dangers caused by an outbreak of mad cow disease. A group of cattlemen sued her for defamation, claiming that her comment cost them $11 million in profits. In 1998, the court sided with Winfrey, who declared that "Free speech not only lives, it rocks", and added that she still did not eat hamburgers The Car Giveaway Came With a Hefty Price Audience members and home viewers were astonished in 2004 when Winfrey gave all 276 members of her studio audience a brand-new Pontiac G6. The total cost of those cars? Just under $8 million. Those audience members weren’t as happy when they found out they had to pay taxes on it. Although Winfrey paid the registration and sales tax, gift tax still had to be paid to the IRS by the new owners. For members in the studio audience that day, the tax bill for that new car was as much as $6000. The Show Was Really Successful “The Oprah Winfrey Show” show received 47 Daytime Emmy Awards before Winfrey decided to stop submitting the show for consideration in 2000. She reportedly wanted to make more room for others in the daytime arena to be nominated, and win. The show aired the final episode in May 2011 after running for almost 25 years. This gives it the distinction of being the longest-running of all the daytime talks shows.

    Trivia

    5 Fascinating Facts About The Brooklyn Bridge Today marks the anniversary of the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge which opened to traffic on May 24, 1883. To celebrate, the Trivia Today team put together these five fascinating facts you may not know about the Brooklyn Bridge... 27 People Died Building The Bridge Though the Brooklyn Bridge was a feat of engineering for its time, it came with a cost. 27 people lost their lives during the 14 years that the bridge was under construction. Many died as a result compression sickness (otherwise known as the "bends"), contracted while constructing the bridge towers' foundations under the East River. However, the most bizarre death was actually the first one: John Roebling, the bridge's designer and chief engineer, died suddenly of a freak accident just weeks before construction kicked off. While he was taking a compass reading at the East River, a boat smashed into his foot and crushed some of his toes. Two weeks later, Roebling was dead from tetanus. There's a Bunker And Wine Cellar Built Into The Bridge Those looming towers aren't just for show—inside, there are several secrets from the bridge's 135-year-long history. Up until World War I, the city rented out space within one of the towers for wine storage. And in 2006, maintenance workers discovered a Cold War-era fallout shelter still fully-stocked with supplies. Workers found large canisters of water, boxes of crackers, medical supplies, and paper blankets all intended to protect a select few in the event of a nuclear attack. A Female Engineer Completed the Project Emily Warren Roebling, Washington Roebling’s wife, stepped in when her husband became ill and took over as a liaison of the project for her husband by overseeing the management, construction and design of the bridge. Progressive for times, she later earned a certificate in law from New York University, which didn’t allow women to attend law school. A plaque located on the bridge honors John A. Roebling, Washington Roebling, and his wife, Emily. A Rooster Made the First Trip Across the Bridge Emily Warren Roebling, with a rooster in her lap, was the first person to travel across the Brooklyn Bridge. This was one week before the bridge was officially opened with attendees such as President Chester A. Arthur and the Governor of New York Grover Cleveland attending the ceremony. The rooster rode along as a symbol of luck and victory. The Name of the Bridge Changed Over The Years The span across the river from Brooklyn to Manhattan was first called the Brooklyn Bridge back in 1867. It was also called the Great East River Suspension Bridge and the Great East River Bridge. In 1915, the name was officially changed to the Brooklyn Bridge.

    It actually is a very good sermon/testimony. Doug walks with God; I have no doubt. I coined the "beast watch" thing, because IMO, sometimes he gets a bit like the disciples did with Jesus, and I think....hmmmm...is he going to call fire down from heaven on our "enemies" soon? Too many preachers do that; but Doug is not a fanatic about it. Some are, and those are the ones I seriously question. The big loud graphic I used from Amazing Facts in the OP was just an example of what people do. It wasn't a specific statement about Doug, per se. I see some, in posts above, decided to twist it all into an utterly stupid context. It IS possible to be a true witness for Christ, while talking about, and warning people about "the beast" of Bible prophecy. One just has to be willing to see "Christ in all The Scriptures."

    5 Things You Didn't Know About Bonnie And Clyde_2 On May 23, 1934, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow took their last ride in a stolen car and died in a hail of bullets. To mark the anniversary of the death of the notorious lovers-turned-robbers, here are five surprising things you didn't know about Bonnie and Clyde... Being Bank Robbers Didn’t Make Them Wealthy Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were famous Depression-era criminals in an era that included John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, Ma Barker and Pretty Boy Floyd. They and their gang mostly targeted gas stations, grocery stores and shops, and were known to break open gumball machines for the change. Although they had a reputation as major criminals, oftentimes their take only amounted to $5 or $10. "Souvenir" Hunters Flocked to The Scene of Their Death On May 23, 1934, a six-man posse led by former Texas Ranger captain Frank Hamer ambushed Bonnie and Clyde and pumped more than 130 rounds of bullets into their stolen Ford V-8 outside Sailes, Louisiana. After dozens of robberies and 13 murders in their name, Bonnie and Clyde's crime spree had finally come to an end. News spread like wildfire when Bonnie and Clyde died in a hail of bullets, and locals arrived at the scene to scavenge souvenirs. According to Jeff Guinn’s book Go Down Together, one man tried to cut off Clyde’s ear with a pocket knife and another attempted to sever his trigger finger before the lawmen intervened. Bonnie Died Wearing a Wedding Ring—But it Wasn’t Clyde’s Six days before turning 16, Bonnie married high school classmate Roy Thornton. The couple separated because of his infidelity, and Thornton went to prison for armed robbery in 1929. Soon after, Bonnie met Clyde, and although the pair fell in love, she never divorced Thornton. On the day Bonnie and Clyde were killed in 1934, she was still wearing Thornton’s wedding ring and had a tattoo on the inside of her right thigh with two interconnected hearts labeled “Bonnie” and “Roy.” The Car They Died in Is Displayed at a Casino Following the shootout that took the lives of Bonnie and Clyde, the bullet riddled Ford V-8 they had been driving was returned to its former owner before it was stolen, a woman named Ruth Warren of Topeka, Kansas. Eventually, Warren sold the car to to Charles Stanley, an anti-crime lecturer who used it as a sideshow attraction. It ended up in Primm, Nevada, about 40 miles from Las Vegas, where it is now an attraction in the lobby of Whiskey Pete’s Casino, along with other Bonnie and Clyde memorabilia. Bonnie and Clyde Were Buried Separately Although linked in life, Bonnie and Clyde were split in death. While the pair wished to be buried side-by-side, Bonnie’s mother, who had disapproved of her relationship with Clyde, had her daughter buried in a separate Dallas cemetery. Clyde was buried next to his brother Marvin underneath a gravestone with his hand-picked epitaph: “Gone but not forgotten.”

    The Hebrew word “yârê'” can mean revere or reverence, fear, frighten and affright be made afraid, dreadful, and finally put in fear. There is time that YAHWEH want your reverence of HIM because who HE IS. Other time due to sin these other words are used. When you read Fear ELOHIYM and keep HIS Commandments, is reverence and love because who is HE. We feel we can say are do things concerning HIM base on our feeble understand of HIM and HE says it over and over you cannot. However, we do not listen, and it will be our fault when HE will deny a lot of us! HE gave HIS NAME we say no we will give the name we want! Do not be surprise if you are rejected! HIS WAY are not ours. We do not like it if anyone call us another name, yet it is supposed to be ok with HIM! Really? That is when the fear comes in! Happy Sabbath!

    Trivia

    5 Things You Didn't Know About Martha Washington President George Washington’s devoted widow and the nation’s first first lady, Martha Dandridge Custis Washington, died at her Mt. Vernon home on this day in 1802. Here are five things you probably didn't know about Martha Washington.... She Was Already a Rich Widow When She Met George Washington Martha and George were married on January 6, 1759, and went on to live as a couple until George passed away on December 12, 1799. Although it was the only marriage for George, Martha had been married once before. Her first husband was a wealthy planter named Daniel Parke Custis, whom she married on May 15, 1750. At the time of their wedding, she was just 18 years old, but her husband was in his late 30s. With Custis dying on July 8, 1757, presumably of a heart attack, the marriage could only last for seven years. After his death, she inherited 17,500 acres of land, and over 300 slaves. She Had Never Been Referred to as “First Lady” in Her Lifetime Since Martha was married to the first US president, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that she was the country’s first First Lady. But the title was rarely used to refer to the spouse of a president until the 1930s. In fact, in all her life, Martha was never referred to as “First Lady.” Instead, she was commonly addressed as "Lady Washington." An article published in the newspaper St. Johnsbury Caledonian in 1838, nearly four decades after her death, was the first time she was referred to as “the first lady of the nation.” She Is One of Only Two Women to Have Appeared on U.S. Paper Money Women rarely appear on U.S. currency, with perhaps the most well-known being the Susan B. Anthony and Sacagawea dollar coins. But as far as paper money goes, only two women have appeared. The first was Pocahontas, who was featured on a $20 bill in the 1860s. The other was Martha Washington, featured on $1 silver certificates in the 1880s and 1890s. There have been no other women on U.S. paper currency since then. She Freed George Washington’s Slaves Under the provisions of his will, George Washington declared that the 123 slaves that he owned were to gain their freedom after his Martha's death. There was a fear that these slaves could revolt and kill Martha in order to gain their freedom early. Fearing for her life, Martha, at the urging of relatives, decided to free her deceased husband’s slaves early. On January 1, 1801, a bit more than a year after George’s death, Washington’s slaves gained their liberty. She Outlived Two Husbands And Four Children. Tragically, Martha outlived not only the two men she got married to, but also the four kids she had given birth to. All four of her children were fathered by Custis – she had none with George. Two of the kids died before reaching the age of four, while one passed away at the age of 16.J ohn Parke Custis was her only child to make it to adulthood and get married. However, he too died prematurely, at the age of 26, after having contracted “camp fever” while serving as a civilian aide-de-camp to his stepfather during the siege of Yorktown. After already having witnessed the death of her two husbands and four children, Martha died on May 22, 1802, at the age of 70.

    Doctrine Static or . . .

    It's an interesting question. And it challenges many of the old axiomatic assertions about "truth". But let's take a look at what we do know. (a) The revelatory writings which now comprise the Bible were revealed progressively. A person reading exclusively the Old Testament would not have the same understanding that we have; (b) As we gain greater knowledge about the natural world, we have had to re-evaluate certain textual interpretations. For example, certain Christians held to the flat earth and/or geocentric theory on the basis of many texts (e.g. the stars being "placed" in the sky; the sun being created after the earth; Christ's coming being seen by every eye simultaneously, the notion of a single universal sabbath, Joshua commanding the sun to stand still, etc.). We've had no problem re-evaluating those texts to harmonize them with a spherical earth and heliocentric solar system, understanding that the Bible was written from the point of view of men without this knowledge. We even retain many of these notions in our language as figures of speech (e.g. sunrise, sunset, shooting star), knowing full well that the figure of speech doesn't describe a literal reality. We allow these figures of speech to try to shoehorn certain prophecies to conform to certain preconceived notions (e.g. many SDAs see the 1833 Leonid meteor shower as a fulfillment of the "falling stars" prophecy, even though we know full well that no stars we involved in that phenomenon - we recognize that Jesus wasn't giving a lesson in astronomy, so we allow Him to refer to meteors as "stars" without calling Him a false prophet). Our understanding of God has also changed. Certain passages in Genesis portray God as less than omniscient. In Genesis 18:21, God has to set out on a fact finding mission to see if the messages that have reached Him are true. As the Bible was revealed, a different view of God emerged. A similar process involves our growing knowledge of the natural world. Today we know about light refraction and rainbows. We know that given the dimension of the Ark described in the Bible, there is no possible way that 2 of every species known to man could have fit on the ark. We know that the sun predates the earth. We know that the stars predate the earth. Despite EGW's comments on "amalgamation of man and beast", we don't condemn an entire race on the basis of Ham's curse. We know that none of the modern romance tongues (French, Italian, Catalan, Spanish, Portuguese, etc.) were created at Babel, but rather grew out of local variations and dialects of Latin. Jews and Christians re-evaluated our understanding of days and the Sabbath in light of the spherical earth and the International Date Line. SDAs had no problem adopting a spherical earth understanding of the Sabbath. Men re-evaluated their understanding of God based on the progressive revelation of the Bible. We re-evaluated our understanding of "falling stars" and "moon to blood" based on our knowledge of meteors, comets and lunar and solar eclipses. We re-evaluated our understanding of Biblical texts governing slavery based on a quasi-universal condemnation of slavery as evil. We re-evaluated OT capital punishments against adultery and sabbath-breaking based on modern notions of justice and separation of church and state. Protestants re-evaluated the Eucharist despite the clear text "this IS my body", since we know full well that the wafer stays a wafer and the "wine" stays "wine". We re-evaluated the interpretation of "wine" in the wake of the temperance movement and witnessing the ravages of drunkenness in 19th century America. But there remains certain beliefs, teachings, traditions that have risen to the level of "sacred cows". I fear that the SDA church, despite its relatively small size, recent vintage and relative unimportance within Christianity, is still far too institutional, inflexible and laden with tradition and inertia to adapt.

    Trivia

    5 Things You Didn't Know About "The Empire Strikes Back" On May 21, 1980, The Empire Strikes Back was released in theaters. This was the second film in the Star Wars series although it was technically the fifth film in a planned saga. Here are 5 things you didn't know about The Empire Strikes Back... It Has One of the Best-Known Misquoted Movie Lines. The most well-known line in the film is often the commonly quoted plot twist, in which Darth Vader says, "Luke, I am your father." However, the line has actually been misquoted for decades. The real quote from The Empire Strikes Back is "No, I am your father." Either way, the news that Darth Vader was Luke Skywalker's father remains one of the most devastating moments in the entire saga. Yoda Almost Had A Very Different Name It's not unusual for scripts to undergo major changes in each draft, and names usually get rearranged and changed, too. In an early draft of the film, Luke was going to travel to the planet of Bog (instead of Dagobah), and receive training from a frog-like Jedi named Minch. In later drafts, Minch was renamed to Yoda. The name "Minch" however did end up making an appearance in Star Wars comics and was used by another member of Yoda's species. He was much older, with his story taking place seven hundred years before the events in the Skywalker Saga. George Lucas Self-Funded The Whole Movie Swimming in cash thanks to the success of the original Star Wars, George Lucas opted to fund all subsequent sequels out of his own pocket. If his strategy seems impressive today, it seemed very radical way back in 1979 when Empire rolled into production. Lucas also retained sequel rights from Fox, who saw no future in the series. We’d imagine someone lost his job over that one…Lucas had fought to maintain sequel rights as a way of guaranteeing himself total creative freedom with the Star Wars universe. By paying for everything himself, it would be easier for him to keep all the rights, as well as all the profits. Jim Henson Turned Down The Voice Of Yoda To create Yoda, George Lucas knew it would require some innovative techniques. He consulted with Jim Henson, who’s Muppets had become cultural icons. Lucas and Henson became fast friends, and Lucas asked Henson to play the role of Yoda. Henson declined his offer to direct "The Great Muppet Caper." Henson did, however, suggest his frequent collaborator Frank Oz for the part. Oz accepted, performing Yoda's voice. Lucas Tried To Get Oz An Oscar Nomination Yoda has become one of the best-loved characters in the Star Wars franchise. His performance was so important to the film's success that George Lucas spent thousands of dollars campaigning to get Frank Oz a Best Supporting Actor nomination at the Oscars. Unfortunately, the Academy declared that puppeteers were not actors, and ineligible for the award. Lucas made the snub up to Oz by bringing him back for the next four Star Wars films.

    5 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Blue Jeans_3 On May 20, 1873, Levi Strauss and his partner Jacob Davis received a patent for riveted pants that became known as blue jeans. Here are 5 things you probably didn’t know about the history of these iconic jeans in America… Blue Jeans Were The Creation of Two Immigrants Although Levis are an iconic symbol of America, two immigrants were involved in their original design. Jacob Davis, an immigrant from Latvia, who was living in Reno, Nevada, came up with the idea of placing copper rivets at particular points in work pants to make them stronger. He contacted Levi Strauss, a German-born wholesale dry goods merchant, who supplied his fabric. Strauss financed the application for the patent and became the name of the popular denim jeans. There’s a Reason Jeans Have Rivets It wasn't just for style that Levi's jeans have had copper rivets on the pockets since the beginning. Copper rivets placed on the pockets made the seams more durable and prevented tearing, which was important to the miners who originally wore them. In the 1930s, the pockets were sewn to the pants so that the rivets were covered because of complaints that they scratched furniture. But they were returned to view in 1947. A small fifth pocket was added as a handy carrying case for a pocket watch. One Pair of Levis Sold for More Than $46,000 One of the world’s oldest pairs of Levi’s jeans - made in the 1880s and sold for around a dollar- was reacquired by Levi Strauss & Co. for $46,532. The jeans were found in an old gold mine in the Mojave Desert in California in 1999 and were reported to be 100 years old. In what is believed to be the highest price ever paid for denim, Levi’s bought the jeans during an online eBay auction. Levi’s historian Lynn Downey said the company would use the jeans as a template for part of a vintage collection. Historians for Levi Strauss examined the fabric and patented copper rivets and concluded the jeans were produced between 1880 and 1885. Jeans Weren’t Always Called Jeans What people know today as jeans were originally called waist overalls when they were first sold by Bavarian immigrant Levi Strauss and his partner Jacob Davis in 1873. People continued to call them waist overalls or just plain overalls until the 1960s. Jean (or jeane) was the name for the cotton corduroy fabric made in Genoa, Italy, that was used to fashion the pants. Hollywood Made Jeans Popular With Teens Originally, jeans were associated with the working class and Westerners such as cowboys, but Hollywood films changed that. It started first with Marlon Brando wearing jeans as a tough biker in The Wild One in 1953, and then with heartthrob James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause in 1955. By the time Marilyn Monroe appeared in The Misfits in 1961, everyone wanted to own at least a few pairs of jeans, including women.

    So there are at least three warning messages that should rouse the Laodiceans. This man claiming that the Latter rain began 31 May. Hch telling you that when President Pence is in office, he will be the last one and Christ will come during his term And Walter Vieth concluding from his study that Christ must come before 2027. The evidence is sufficient to warrant your attention and rouse folks to study the word. On the other side of the issue we have more skeptics claiming themselves to be SDA's that are crying peace and safety and saying that the warning messages are not from God. As it was in the days of Noah, only a few went into the ark while the masses scoffed from the outside. Has anything changed? The majority is still the majority!

    Yep! Oh the blessings that came to me 17 May 2020. I'm sorry if you missed 'em. No, you lied and predicted that Pence was Daniel 12:1 and that he, would take over the presidency from the man in the white house now! I've been laughing so hard, my side hurts as I'm catching up on these posts. You are laughing so hard your side is hurting, and Satan and his evil angels are laughing even harder because they have truly got your soul! You have been so deceived and fool that it is unbelievable, their spiritual bodies do not ache like your side does. In the New Testament, Christ set an interesting example. Short and to the point. He said something and let it be. When wrongly contradicted, He let the contradiction stand and said nothing except on rare occasions like when Peter was rebuked. You are so blinded that you contradicted the truth yourself. YAHSHUA, HIMSELF rebuked the Pharisees and the disciples, when they contradicted the truth. In Revelation 3:14-18; HE rebuked the church because this church (not everyone), think they know so much, and they do not! This Scripture proves people like you who twisted the Scriptures, mocks others just like the Pharisees who think they know the Bible and truth. These are the very one HE spue them out of HIS MOUTH! Take heed Henry, you are on a downfall. No need to defend my position. You will understand soon enough. I posted a video that sums it up in less than an hour with more evidence from the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy than most folks get in week. Now, this is a joke you make a prediction and it does not come true at all; then you are so full of yourself. You claim you sum up your evidence from the Bible and with the SPIRIT of PROPHECY that Bible clearly states is YAHSHUA! EGW never call herself that Mr. Henry what she gave in visions is what was already in the Bible! Then you brag you can do in an hour what others do it in a week! NARCISSISTIC! SATAN! But it is written that the wise will understand. No need to contradict what is written. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. Dan 12:10 So, you are again misusing Scripture for you own selfish, narcissistic scolding to those who rebuke your prophecies! Those tried is not the remnant they are the ones in Verse 3, you know they are the ones who are “wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” The tried ones are the ones who will be sealed during the Time of Trouble also known as "THE WRATH of THE LAMB!" Rev 6:16,17; 9:4! Everything you have written contradict so many things that is why you made this statement! You only came on this forum to sale your theories and your book and it has not worked! Those seeking a blessing still have a little while to find it. But when God soon puts final events in motion, they will be rapid ones. The problem with you is you are so blind that you do not realize that YAHWEH Events have been in motion since sin begin. HE is just letting HIS SON Wrath soon to be poured out not to long now, sorrow has begun. Next is the Time of Trouble, we just do not know how long the sorrow will end THEY do we do not! My final conclusion is you are faking it because you cannot come up why your prediction fail twice, and you look foolish. So, you were already vain in your way of thinking, like someone else I know you divert! It is not working you have showed up and been thrown under the bus. Guess who SATAN, guess why YAHSHUA rebuke those who distorts the truth who should know better. You remind me of the play call Dr. Faustus and your time is up! Your Time is Winding Up!

    When will Iran attack our (US) fleet?

    It was not the scholarly theologians who had an understanding of this truth, and engaged in its proclamation. Had these been faithful watchmen, diligently and prayerfully searching the Scriptures, they would have known the time of night; the prophecies would have opened to them the events about to take place. But they did not occupy this position, and the message was given by humbler men. Said Jesus: "Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you." John 12:35. Those who turn away from the light which God has given, or who neglect to seek it when it is within their reach, are left in darkness. But the Saviour declares: "He that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." John 8:12. Whoever is with singleness of purpose seeking to do God's will, earnestly heeding the light already given, will receive greater light; to that soul some star of heavenly radiance will be sent to guide him into all truth. 313 {GC 312.3}
