Thanks James. It means time has no relevance to God. One day it will have none to us either. What would a long time to us ( a literal 1000 years) is but a literal watch in the night to God

Joel, help me out here please. At what point has anyone said that everything is to be taken literally in the Bible? Context is always important

There is much to celebrate every day brother John. It is part of rendering our praise to God for the manifold mercies, Grace, and blessings He sends to such undeserving ones as we are on a daily basis

When Scripture says a thousand years is as a day to the Lord, it is not speaking in hyperbole but context shows it is stating that God (Who inhabits eternity) is not effected or bound by time as we His. creation are.

It has been both stated and implied that the thousand years in Revelation 20 is not literal.
Sister BMac has aptly shown that hyperbole is part of Scripture

Question. What precedent found anywhere in Scripture shows a thousand years when mentioned is not to be taken literally? Or maybe another use of the term thousand in the Bible where it doesn’t literally mean a thousand? Thanks for your insights.

We are glad to have a President who celebrates the sanctity of life instead of the murder of the unborn. His stance may not be perfect but he has stopped much of the federal funding for abortion and even stopped some funding for Planned Parenthood which I believe is currently tied up in the courts

Is there Biblical precedent? We read of a group destined for destruction that by government edict got a reprieve. What did they do? We see that they celebrated and even sent gifts. It didn’t stop there, they made it an annual national holiday. (See book of Esther for further enlightenment)

We rejoice with them that rejoice. Have a great day, hope you’re feeling better

Not sure where you’re coming from James. The great horn was said to be the first king of Grecia not Persia and you would have to rewrite history to say Alexander the Great didn’t defeat the Medo-Persian Empire and upon his death his kingdom was divided amongst four generals. It’s not a matter of hermeneutic rendering but historical record.

Thanks for the correction brother Lurker, hope all is well. My apologies James, thought you were saying abomination of desolations had already occurred before our Lord’s first advent.

I am amillenial. I believe we are experiencing the millennium right now.
Friend if you are amillenial then you don't believe in experiencing the millennium at anytime. I believe your view would be called post millennial.

James Thomas wrote:
Antiochus IV Epiphanes arose from the part of the divided Persian empire that ruled over Israel and it is widely believed that he set up the abomination of desolation by sacrificing swine on the temple altar.
Disciples ask our Lord what will be signs of "end of the age"

Mathew 24:15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. v. 21 for then there *will be* great tribulation

Our Lord spoke of these things as a future event.

Brother James says it happened a tad over a century and a half before His birth.

Honestly folks this is just the use of biometrics. People have to tie their credit card to their palm print. One of the most secure ways to pay with a card is with Apple/Google/Samsung pay. Your card never is public view, the number is tokenized at the time of the transaction, you don't visibly enter your passcode, and a skimmer can't take your card and pin number. This is done through either a fingerprint reader or facial recognition software on your phone (biometrics). Now in some Scandanavian countries they are using chip implants in lieu of cash and keys, that is more along the lines of what we see in Revelation. Now if your amillenial then its all figurative and none of this is cause for concern.

The Lord more than once referred to His coming again with reference to a day and an hour. It would seem to be a set time predetermined by God. Men cannot hasten it or delay it. We by His grace and for His glory just need to be watchful for it and live accordingly. What a glorious day that will be!!!

John, at no time has this been a discussion about the merits of a government run healthcare. That’s a completely different topic that would be very difficult to cover in this type of forum given the character limitations. But you have described Cuba’s universal healthcare. UHC has the problem of limited resources and yes the wealthy are able to work around those limits and the not so wealthy are stuck dealing with those limits.

okay because i was mentioned in two comments, will respond.

The NHS has a number of funding sources that affect everyday purchases. There are Value added taxes (VAT) on items paid for by the consumer, business taxes that are passed on to the customer, exise fees on imports that are also passed onto the consumer and the high cost of fuel among those things that the public pay daily. Fuel alone adds to the cost of nearly everything as most products and services are delivered to the point of sale by vehicles. Transporters have to pay for the fuel and therefore include that into the delivery costs, which in turn is added to the cost of the item. The high fuel cost means all goods and services that are purchased have a higher cost due to paying for the fuel that is consumed in getting the product to market. Thus not only do you pay for fuel when you use public or private transportation, you also pay for it at restuarants, at various types of shops and stores, etc. It is part of everyday life. (no different over here)

So you have money that is part of daily expenses throughout the year paying for a portion of the NHS budget. Forgive me for not being able to say that something that is prepaid is "free" at the point of use.

Because it works at terminals in stores I am pretty sure you’d stick out if you were carrying a severed hand to pay for your purchase

Personally I think the National Health Service in the UK is most wonderful, so too is the Fire Service, so too is the Police Force, so too is the Army, Navy and Air Forces. These are all paid for by taxation. How else would you do it?
_________________
Bro US, I have already shown how for some people their medical treatment truly was free, because they were taking out more than they were putting in. Others will put in and take nothing out because they never need it. Therefore some will put in, and others will take out. Car insurance works in exactly the same way; it is compulsory, and some will never claim, others will claim a lot. I might put in £3,000 over ten years and after an accident my insurance company may have to pay out £500,000 to a third party. So I paid the first £3,000 but the rest of it was paid for by others. In other words, not by me.
Thanks for your thoughts and examples, You also have a good day

There is no harm if you wish to rant till you are blue about the ills of a welfare system.
However insisting that 'free at the point of use' is not literally true is ridiculous.
We all know it is financed somehow.
You are playing with words to rant on a topic.
Bye.....
None has been a rant on my part. I haven't said, that I can recall, a thing about the ills of a welfare system. My point, whether or not you choose to acknowledge it, is that your healthcare is not and never will be free at anytime. You pay for it. However this discussion does seem to be upsetting you, so will let the topic go. Good day day sister.

Adriel appreciate your humor brother, may you also have a good day.

The NHS, sister BMac is the one playing semantics, not I

If I pay for a plane ticket online and then print it out and go to the airport to board my plane, when I go through security, the gates and board the plane I don’t pay any money at the point of use . Would you say the airline is correct to come out and say my flight was free at the point of use? No, because I paid for it, in your case it is through fees, taxes, NI, at the gas pump,etc. Not free at any point
