In Acts 10:28 we learn that more than seven years after the death of Christ it was not lawful for the Twelve to go to Gentiles. To this extent the Twelve were still under the law.

True or False?Please take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 11-25-2011Question: Before the Law was given at Sinai, there were NO Old Testament saints. True or False?Answer: TRUE! Let us first of all, get these facts firmly and clearly fixed in our minds and hearts: “From Adam to Moses”, before the law was given at Sinai, there were NO Old Testament saints; for that which we call the Old Testament or Old Covenant was not entered into by the children of Israel and Ya-Hweh until Moses was eighty years old. This was about 1492 B. C. Now, out of the 634 responses we received to this question only 52.9% of you got it right. So, we have more work to do in this area.

First the Question: Before the Law was given at Sinai, there were NO Old Testament saints. True or False?Please take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 11-22-2011Question: It is a serious spiritual crime to offer to saint or sinner a message of Grace and Law...MIXED, which is ANOTHER Gospel. True or False?Answer: TRUE! Now listen to me very carefully, the messenger may believe in the inspiration of the Scriptures, in the virgin birth and Deity of the LORD Jesus Christ, in His sacrifice for sins and His bodily resurrection, in the Deity and personality of the Holy Spirit, and still be a heretic, guilty of frustrating the Grace of God and perverting the Gospel of Grace. God is very jealous concerning His own redemptive work. It is a serious spiritual crime to offer to saint or sinner a message of Grace and law, mixed, which is ANOTHER Gospel. The Epistle to the Galatians is the antidote for the Roman Catholicism, Seventh Day Adven…

Happy Thanksgiving Day from the Lion and Lamb Ministry

HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY!It is well known that the First Thanksgiving Day was celebrated by the Pilgrim Fathers in 1621 to give thanks for their first harvest and safe arrival in the New World. In 1789, President George Washington issued a Thanksgiving Day Proclamation to commemorate the first Pilgrim celebration. And here is that proclamation,“WHEREAS, it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor. “WHEREAS, both the houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.” George WashingtonWhile we are grateful that the Founding Fathers of these Unite…

First the Question: It is a serious spiritual crime to offer to saint or sinner a message of Grace and Law...MIXED, which is ANOTHER Gospel. True or False?Please take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 11-19-2011Question: After reading Gal. 3:24-25, 2 Cor. 3:7-15, Col. 2:13-16, Heb. 8:9-13, and Gal. 3:19, we learn that the Law Dispensation was both parenthetical and TEMPORARY. True or False?Answer: TRUE! After reading Jeremiah 31:31-37, Amos 9:11-15, and Acts 3:19-26, Romans 11:25-33, with Ephesians 3:1-3, we should certainly know that God suspended and interrupted His prophesied ‘kingdom’ program, and that we are living in a temporary and parenthetical dispensation of grace; that during this un-prophesied period God is making One New Man, by reconciling believers in One Body by the cross. (Ephesians 2:15-16). Now, out of the 714 responses we received to this question, only 75% of you got it right Which tells me you did NOT look…

Yes or No?Please take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now...Today let us consider, Are We Close to the End?Recently I have heard more than one person make this remark, “the next two years will tell the tale.” They, of course, were referring to the present economic and financial state of affairs, of the U.S. and the World. Many are expressing the opinion that there will be either a return to prosperity within the next year or two or a world‑wide revolution.Most will admit that the political situation all over the world is anything but satisfactory and the immediate future does not look any too bright. Heads of State, at home, and abroad are warning the public of the present chaos and the approaching crisis, asking men and women to take an inventory of world conditions and to admit that universal, political, economical and…

True or False?Answer: TRUE! The Apostle Paul mentioned the second coming or appearing in glory of the Lord Jesus in at least ten of his fourteen Epistles, but NEVER referred to the Lord Jesus either as “the Son of Man” or as “Jesus of Nazareth” in writing to Gentiles or in speaking to them. There is some hidden and significant meaning to Paul’s words in 2 Cor. 5:16, “though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we Him no more.” Now, out of the 713 responses we received to this question, 73.5% of you got it right!

First the Question: The Apostle Paul never referred to the LORD Jesus either as the Son of Man, or as Jesus of Nazareth, in writing or speaking to Gentiles. True or False?Please take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now....Today let us consider, Listening to GodThe phrase “the voice of God” or “the voice of the LORD” is used over 50 times in the Bible. The command to “hear the word of the LORD” is found another 24 times. Listening to God is IMPORTANT. Read Isaiah 6:1-10. Uzziah was 16 years old, according to 2 Chronicles 26:1, when he became king of Judah and he reigned for 52 years in Jerusalem (790-739 BC). In 2 Chronicles 26:4 we learn that “he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD.” Verse 5 of that chapter says: “he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God; and as long as he sought the LORD, God made him prosper.”However, a tragedy occurred in his life at the age of 58, some 10 years before he eventually died…

Nothing of the 13 or 14 Kingdom parables of Matthew are mentioned in the Gospel of John, likewise nothing of the return of the Son of Man to save Israel out of The Great Tribulation is mentioned in the Gospel of John.

We have also observed that in the twenty one chapters of John, (aside from the statement in John 3:22 and John 4:1-2 that the disciples were with Christ baptizing), we have very, very, little information in John’s Record as to the preaching ministry of the twelve apostles, who, by th…
