      True. I tried convincing this person via email who had a "Christian" website (because he was teaching there that God the Father and Jesus are two separate beings). He just couldn't accept it, even with all the plain scriptures I've provided (the ones below, then many other scriptures I've learned and understood with the Lord's guidance, from Bryan's many studies about the Godhead):

      Thou shalt have no other gods before me. (Exodus 20:3 )

      Thou shalt have none other gods before me.(Deuteronomy 5:7)

      14 for thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:(Exodus 34:14)

      2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 3 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.(Matthew 8:2-3)

      I believe that a newly (truly) saved person who hasn't yet studied the "meat" of the Godhead doctrine will still be able to somehow work out with the scriptures above that there are no two Gods.

      Though we know what the Lord teaches that lost people are blinded and have hardened hearts, it still amazes me sometimes how they cannot see the most plain of scriptures.

      Mark 12:  29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
        30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
        31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
        32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:

      Yeah, the Trinity is just pagan philosophy (1 God, but in reality 3, yet 1, but 3, yet 1...). Many lost Jews think true faith in Jesus means believing in 3 different gods, because they think Catholicism is just as good as true faith in the Scriptures, and they are obviously taken aback and want nothing to do with it. It's very unfortunate.

      That we cannot explain fully how God's 3 parts work because He is beyond our comprehension, does not mean we cannot know from Scripture that there is 1 GOD, period. God can separate Himself, but that doesn't make Him 2 or 3 gods, yet that is soooo hard for Trinitarians to understand and they will keep defending their "triune god" unto death. I had a discussion with a Trinitarian not too long ago, and it's just like that, they will just refuse to let go of the word Trinity even.

      In Hebrew, God is written "Elohim", being the "-im" the Hebrew plural, notwithstanding every Tanakh-abiding Jew (even if lost) knows there is just 1 God.

    • Thank you for the resources I will look into them! 

      I am still a bit confused about some aspects. But hopefully God will show me the truth. 😊

    • John 2:  18 ¶Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?
        19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
        20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
        21 But he spake of the temple of his body.

      "Jesus never said He was the Father!". It's so silly. There are references to Jesus being the Father all over. I can't understand how someone can still say Jesus is not the Father.

    • It's a long thing to explain... But it all goes back to the 70 weeks determined for Israel prophesied by the angel Gabriel to Daniel. We know that after the 70 weeks are fulfilled, Christ will be anointed as King for ever and Israel will have been purged from his iniquity.

      Of course, that has not happened yet. 69 weeks have past since the prophecy until the first coming of Christ, counting day per year (dates do match, it is something that the Wise Men may have studied so they knew when the Messiah would be born). But since Israel as a nation rejected Him, the 70th week has been postponed.

      This understanding, that only 1 week remains, which is 7 days, and a year per day, matches perfectly with all the other references to that final time of purification for Israel, called in Jeremiah 30:7 "the Time of Jacob's Trouble", which is explained in more detail in the book of Revelation.

      Larkin's charts have some inadequacies, but they are helpful to have an overall view of Scripture.

      ----------------------

      As for the timeline of the events of the book of Revelation itself, well, there are a couple of theories. Some say it is in chronological order from Ch1 to Ch22, others that it go back in certain places. I don't think I can answer 100% for or against chronological order, but for now I believe it is.

    1. I've been busy working on the test server, preparing to update kingjamesvideoministries.org to the latest version of Invision Community. Quite a bit has changed with this release (Release Notes) and the theming system as well. So I went ahead and rewrote all the CSS we were using and have been working out a few kinks before I do the upgrade. Hopefully, sometime within the next week, I should have everything done.
