); Baptism (Purified and placed in Christ through the Spirit. ); Sealing (The Spirit’s Identifying, Securing, and Empowering); and, Filling (The Spirit’s providing of fullness in Christ-like character and giftedness). These five ministries of the Holy Spirit relate to the believer in Christ. The last two of the seven ministries of the Holy Spirit are Reproving (Conviction and correction of the world and sin by the Spirit); and, Restraining (The Spirit’s confining and/or “standing in the way of evil and the Anti-Christ). These two ministries of the Holy Spirit relate to the world and non-believer.
One main topic of discussion in the Bible is numerology. After researching the number seven, I came across how the number is significant. It can represent God, as many believe 666 represents the devil. (www.biblerefrence.org)There are many significant numbers in the Bible, but seven stuck out to me when I figured it’s meaning of wholeness and completeness. The meanings behind the number seven are perfection, spiritual perfection, and completeness.
Moroni (We covered this earlier in this report – someone has evidently inserted the name Moroni for Nephi in this revelation), an angel from heaven, declaring the fulfillment of the prophets--the book to be revealed. A voice of the Lord in the wilderness of Fayette, Seneca county, declaring the three witnesses to bear record of the book. The voice of Michael on the banks of the Susquehanna, detecting the devil when he appeared as an angel of light. The voice of Peter, James and John in the wilderness between Harmony, Susquehanna county, and Colesville, Broome county, on the Susquehanna river, declaring themselves as possessing the keys of the kingdom, and of the Dispensation of the Fullness of Times."

A STUDY ON ISAIAH 9:1-7 BY DIANIA SPORISKY A STUDY ON ISAIAH 9:1-7 The Bible comforts and reminds those of us who have come to trust in Jesus Christ not to despair as if there was no hope. We have the revelation of our Lord that not only announces His sovereign reign but also charts the course of world events. One of the most significant revelations is found in Isaiah 9. Against the background of the prophecy of war and destruction, darkness and gloom (chapter 8) Isaiah gave this prophecy about the Messiah—the glorious coming king. “Messiah” is a Hebrew term that means “anointed one,” that is, the anointed king.
(Own word) 487 Paul follows on from his model of shame and courage in chapter one verse fifteen to eighteen. Paul passes on direct advise to Timothy as he prepares to take over the ministry. 487 (own words) Paul applies three metaphors in the verses 3 to 6 to defend his call of Timothy to suffer. The Good Soldier The first metaphor used is that of 'the good soldier'. This appears to draw reference to It can be argued that this is a simile, contrasting the good soldier to that of Christ Jesus.
The middle or central portal depicts the second coming of Christ during the last judgment. He is surrounded by symbols of the Four Evangelists (Chartres Cathedral, Sacred Destinations). I will enter through the central portal and navigate to the apse. As I enter the central portal I first notice the height. “The elevation of the nave is three-storied, with arcade, triforium and clerestory levels” (Wikipedia, Chartres Cathedral, Plan and elevation section, para 2).
Christianity of course heavily influences the poem and there are also some paganistic elements as well (The Dream of the Rood, 2011). The Dream of the Rood is first and foremost a Christian piece. The poem details the death and resurrection of Christ, the triumph over sin and evil, and stresses the importance of the Rood or Cross as we know it. The death and resurrection of Christ is very important in the Christian religion, it is because Christ gave his life for mankind in the ultimate sacrifice to forgive mankind of their sins. When Christ rose again on the third day he made his triumph over sin and evil and proved he was the true Son of God.
This is based on various Bible passages. A second key belief is that Jesus is the Son of God and is one with God. Christians believe that Jesus is the Son of God, that he is one with God, and that he was sent here for our salvation. In John 10:30, John the Apostle quotes Jesus as saying, "I and the Father are one." Another signiﬁcant Christian belief is that Jesus suffered and was cruciﬁed.
Believers practicing loving God with all their mind would be a witness to this world and even a way of reaching out in compassion and gentleness we have left behind by burying our arguments in our Bibles and not engaging the questions raised by the lost. Understanding where Evangelicals have fallen intellectually will help foster obedience to Christ’s command to love God with all of our mind. The major arguments held by critics Richard Hofstadter, George M. Marsden, and Alister McGrath, declare modern Evangelicalism anti-intellectual. Some of the main reasons for this are the average Evangelicals fear of defending their faith, the separation of the spiritual and secular, and the slothfulness Evangelicals have to
