Last time I checked, "Thou shalt not bear false witness" is still a sin to keep man from going to heaven, Right ???
AV Re 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and [I know] the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but [are] the synagogue of Satan.
Post resurrection Jesus' words. Does Jesus recognize Jesus' Church as Jews(ref Rom 11) ???
Many are going to miss the last flight to heaven over Jesus' words in semantics, Right ???
So you want to play "semantics" with GOD's meaning in words, Right ???
AV Mt 13:13-16 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. 14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: 15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and [their] ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with [their] eyes, and hear with [their] ears, and should understand with [their] heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. 16 But blessed [are] your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
Still want to be a literalist to GOD's words in "semantics" ???
How many brides does Christ have ???
AV Ex 32:32-33 Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin--; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written. 33 And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.
How many Book(s) of Life are there ???
Yours in Christ, Michael
