naw . I was making fun of that looser .BTW some bad things did happened in 1918

Yes, some bad things happened that year.. We entered WW1, the worldwide flu epidemic, taking millions of lives.

See, if your prophets had been right in 1914, the world may have been spared all that pain.

No man knows when the world will end. Anyone who claims so is a false prophet. ANY man who claims to know is just looking for fame or money or are just wack jobs! Its been the catalyst for milking money out of people for centuries.

that's kind of a stretch ironglow. Especially considering he doesn't even believe he was. Im sure it was just in jest.

God’s reply in Hebrew was: ʼEh·yehʹ ʼAsherʹ ʼEh·yehʹ. Some translations render this as “I AM THAT I AM.” However, it is to be noted that the Hebrew verb ha·yahʹ, from which the word ʼEh·yehʹ is drawn, does not mean simply “be.” Rather, it means “become,” or “prove to be.” The reference here is not to God’s self-existence but to what he has in mind to become toward others. Therefore, the New World Translation properly renders the above Hebrew expression as “I SHALL PROVE TO BE WHAT I SHALL PROVE TO BE.” Jehovah thereafter added: “This is what you are to say to the sons of Israel, ‘I SHALL PROVE TO BE has sent me to you.’”—Ex 3:14, ftn.
That this meant no change in God’s name, but only an additional insight into God’s personality, is seen from his further words: “This is what you are to say to the sons of Israel, ‘Jehovah the God of your forefathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is my name to time indefinite, and this is the memorial of me to generation after generation.” The name Jehovah comes from a Hebrew verb that means “to become,” and a number of scholars suggest that the name means “He Causes to Become.” This definition well fits Jehovah’s role as the Creator of all things and the Fulfiller of his purpose. Only the true God could rightly and authentically bear such a name.

This aids one in understanding the sense of Jehovah’s later statement to Moses: “I am Jehovah. And I used to appear to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as God Almighty, but as respects my name Jehovah I did not make myself known to them.” (Ex 6:2,*3)

Well, I would agree with both here, and Christ did say only the Father knows.

Something to think SERIOUSLY about;

God has reserved the name "I AM" for himself... Read here in Exodus 3,

3 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?
14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.


Jesus himself affirmed that he was God, when he claimed the same name, the jews on scene realized that by calling bhimself I AM..he was calling himself GOD, and set to stone him for it !..check John 8 ;

58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by. (KJV)


Jesus continually referred to himself as I AM..the critical point that few understand is that any Jew using that title claimed by God for himself, would be inviting a stoning by fellow Jews.

To refer to yourself as you did in post #11 , could be considered as blasphemous.

...Walk softly...
