Re: book of Ezra in the bible
Can you site an illustration of this from the Bible? Thank you for serious answers only.
Yes, I’ve noticed this in real life. Despite disasters, we don’t die before our time. When 9=1=1 occurred, hundreds, if not thousands were delayed from getting to work in the towers that day through a freeway backup and other ways. Also some in the building, even those on upper floors were miraculously saved, while others who had no faith in God’s help jumped out the window.
The Bible tells us in Romans that all Israel will be saved. I believe it means all the true believers who trust in the Lord each day.
Zechariah 13:9 says he will bring a third through the fire. Those are the ones who will be saved, the remnant. In another place it says only a remnant will be saved (because of Israel’s extreme stubborness and unwillingness to obey).
These are examples from Isaiah:
Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.
Isaiah 1:8-10 (in Context) Isaiah 1 (Whole Chapter)
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
Isaiah 10:19-21 (in Context) Isaiah 10 (Whole Chapter)
The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God.
Isaiah 10:20-22 (in Context) Isaiah 10 (Whole Chapter)
For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness.
Isaiah 10:21-23 (in Context) Isaiah 10 (Whole Chapter)
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
Isaiah 11:10-12 (in Context)
It’s funny, in a way, because God’s character is beyond our ability to describe. Though we sin, He always forgives.
So when disaster strikes because of the sin of Adam, God always has had someone to help us along, wether it was Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther, and all the prophets before and since. His will is to always have someone ready to move accorrding to His purpose, in order to assure a remnant to carry on His name to the next generation.
For God so loved the world….
2 When thou passest through the waters, I[ will be] with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
False. There’s a scripture in the Bible where a tower falls and kills about 18 people. The apostles asked Jesus: “Why did those people die? were they worse than any other people?” He basically said: No, they were just at the wrong place at the wrong time. Some people just get lucky when there’s a natural disaster in their lives.
if god is punishing his people in the old testament yes he saves a few
if he is punishing the wicked none are saved I.E. Sodom and Gomorrah
christians are god’s people and he saves them from his judgment
god never punishes the righteous
KJV: II Peter 2:9. The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
Yes, the Bible God is too weak to save everyone. He is only able to save a few in this existence.
The seed of abraham was going to survive no matter what else happened in the world. Jesus WOULD be born. God promised and he can not, will not lie.
Yes. Like most serial killers, he always keeps a trophy to remind him of his evil deeds.
More insane ideas coming from a nonsensical and baseless belief system. False.
Yes, just like I am the only one in my Church who is a true Christian.
none of the above
or perhaps I was not meant to understand the question
it was quite esoteric
