In the Bible did the sea serpent Leviathan swallow up Jonah?

The Book of Jonah does not mention Leviathan. In any case, scholars familiar with the biblical references to Leviathan and with similar Near Eastern creation myths, say that Leviathan was a mythical chaos monster.

Additional Answer:

No, Leviathan is not mentioned in Jonah. Perhaps you are confusing this with Jonah being in the belly of the fish God prepared to swallow him where he remained 3 days and 3 nights (Jonah 1:17).

Leviathan is only mentioned in Job 41; Psalms 74:14; 104:26.

What does Psalm 1 verse 4 mean?

Psalms chapter 1 verse 4 means that God stands firm through the test of time while the wicked man's days are numbered.

~

Psalm 1

1 Blessed is the man

who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked

or stand in the way of sinners

or sit in the seat of mockers.

2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,

and on his law he meditates day and night.

3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water,

which yields its fruit in season

and whose leaf does not wither.

Whatever he does prospers.

4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff

that the wind blows away.

5Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,

nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

6 For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,

but the way of the wicked will perish.

This is a short chapter. Read over it, it is contrasting the wicked and the righteous men.

The declarations of the righteous man are:

Blessed

Delights is the law

He is like a well watered tree

He yields fruit

He prospers

The wicked

He has no foundation and is easily blown away

He will not stand in the righteous judgment, or in their assembly

His ways are the paths to death

Why are Catholics not allowed to eat meat on Fridays during Lent?

The Code of Canon Law of the Catholic Church states that the penitential days and times (such as Lent) in the universal Church are every Friday of the whole year and the season of Lent (Code of Canon Law 1250). In Code of Canon Law 1251 states that, abstinence from meat, or from some other food as determined by the Episcopal Conference, is to be observed on all Fridays, unless a solemnity should fall on a Friday. Abstinence and fasting are to be observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. The law of abstinence binds those who have completed their fourteenth year. The law of fasting binds those who have attained their majority, until the beginning of their sixtieth year. Pastors of souls and parents are to ensure that even those who by reason of their age are not bound by the law of fasting and abstinence, are taught the true meaning of penance (Code of Canon Law 1252). Catholics usually only eat fish on Fridays during Lent because during that time they believe they should give up to meat every Friday as penance and in recognition of the crucifixion of Jesus. Many Catholics do choose to eat fish as an alternative. The Church continues to encourage abstinence (eating no meat) on Friday as an act of penance. The practice is no longer binding under sin.

Once saved what if you backslide?

This is the very question that split Christianity into two main beliefs--Calvinism and Arminianism. John Calvin taught that you are once saved, always saved, no matter what you do. Arminian taught that you can lose your salvation. Amongst the denominations today, Calvinists and Arminianists are scattered everywhere.

If I am saved no matter what I do, then Jesus died in vain. The Bible said, "It is for freedom that you have been set free." Jesus didn't set me free from my sin only for me to walk in it again. You were set free from your sin so you can walk in freedom.

Hebrews 6:4-6 says, "For it is impossible to restore to repentance those who were once enlightened--those who have experienced the good things of heaven and shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the power of the age to come--and who then turn away from God. It is impossible to bring such people to repentance again because they are nailing the Son of God to the cross again by rejecting him, holding him up to public shame."

If it takes faith to get saved in the first place, then it takes faith to keep your salvation. And our salvation hasn't been manifested yet. It will be manifested in heaven. So it takes faith to keep it.

There is a point at which you can lose your salvation. The Bible isn't specific on it. So just live as close to perfect as you can so you don't cross from salvation to not being saved.

~

Nowhere does the word of God state that once we are saved we are forevermore saved.

This idea is pulled from verses like this.

John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and noman is able to pluckthem out of my Father's hand.

Many Christians will use this to say once you are saved you can never lose your salvation. But pay attention to what it says, and does NOT say...

It DOES say "No man" can force you to lose your salvation, this is born out by thousands upon thousands that have died holding on to their confession and belief that Jesus was who he said he was and their faith in him for salvation.

It does NOT, say that men can CHOOSE to leave God's grace of their own accord and retain their salvation. These are the ones that backslide and refuse to come back into fellowship with God. Judas is a perfect example, he walked with Yeshua daily, he heard his teachings, saw the miracles, even laid hands on the sick and saw them healed and cast devils out himself. He betrayed Yeshua, his relationship could have been restored just as Peter's was after he denied Yeshua three times. Peter repented and returned, Judas could have and did not.

We are to work out our salvation with fear and trembling...

Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

We are to lay weights aside and those things that hold us back, our goal is at the end of the race. It is something we do each and every day. Our reward is at the finish line, NOT at the time we accept Yeshua as Lord and Savior...

Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

4 Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.

Salvation takes time, patience, endurance. It is not accomplished at the stoke of a pen so to say...

We are adopted into the family of God, and grafted in to the fig tree in a stroke. But the rest is up to us. We are clothed with armor, and given an awesome weapon in the word of God to allow us to work this out and follow through in victory. But it is a decision we make to follow through day to day.

What is the concept of the 'Oneness of God'?

God is the Infinite Being, He is Existence, as He Himself revealed in the Old Testament, "Tell them that "I am". God names Himself as Being itself. Everyone and everything in creation is created by Him, and held in existence by Him. We are all contingent, He is the the only NECESSARY Being. God is totally One, He has no parts, He is spirit, and is existence itself, thus He has no change, never came into being, and can never go out of existence. God has revealed Himself as a Trinity of Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. But each Person Is God in His Entirety, they are not "parts" of God, nor do they possess God in pieces, They are all God. This is a Mystery which is far beyond our human understanding. It has been revealed by Him, and we must just accept it, precisely because He has revealed it.

What is the Old Apostolic Church?

The Old Apostolic Faith is the only faith that leads to soul salvation I see the Old Apostolic Church as 'a way of life'. Although it is a Spiritual church, it proves to come in very handy when I apply my Spiritual thoughts to my natural life. We don't see the Bible as 'natural' but see it in a Spiritual way which, personally, makes alot more sense than what is plainly written in black and white. You could almost say we pay attention to the story behind the story... I am what we call a 'born-Apostolic' (Born in - and brought up in this church) and wouldn't exchange my faith in this Church for anything in the world!

Is the United Church of God a cult?

One common definition of a cult is an authoritarian organization led by a charismatic personality who enforces obedience to his ideals and beliefs. By this definition, the United Church of God (UCG) is not a cult, because it is governed by a 12-man council of elders. However, the Church faithfully teaches the doctrines of the now deceased Herbert W. Armstrong, who was a very charismatic and controlling leader of the Worldwide Church of God (WCG), which was widely considered to be a cult. Armstrong believed that he was an end-time apostle proclaiming the soon-coming 'Kingdom of God'. WCG discontinued Armstrong's teachings after his death, prompting members faithful to Armstrong doctrines to split and form their own organizations. The United Church of God is one of many of these offshoot organizations. These organizations vary from moderate to more extreme forms, the latter of which tend to have controlling leaders and exhibit clear characteristics of a cult. The more moderate groups, such as UCG, have departed from Armstrong's more eccentric teachings such as a ban on birthdays and makeup.

The United Church of God teaches a unique form of Christianity derived from the teachings of Herbert W. Armstrong, which is known by non-adherents as 'Armstrongism'. Armstrongism teaches that groups of the same beliefs are the 'only true church', and that all other religions are false or satanic counterfeits. 'Converted' members are seen as an exclusive and select group of people specially chosen by God to become 'first-fruits' - a future group of 'god-beings' and 'kings and priests' in the literal earthly 'Kingdom of God.' God has specially 'drawn' his 'elect' and revealed the hidden knowledge of his 'truth' only to them, whereas the rest of the world is blinded by Satan to this special knowledge. The 'sign' of God's 'chosen people' is literal sabbath keeping and obedience to the Old Covenant (Mosaic) law, excluding temple and ritual laws. Significant demands are placed on members, such as two tithes and Holy Day observances. Members are not permitted to work from sunset to sunset on Holy-Days or the Sabbath (Saturday), even if they lose their employment as a result. Armstrongist groups, such as UCG, consider themselves as being different and apart from 'the world', i.e. non-believers. As an example, they will not celebrate Christmas in any form because Christmas is 'extra-biblical' and 'pagan' in origin.

Other key UCG beliefs that differ from traditional Christianity include the rejection of the Trinity, and their belief that Western white nations (predominantly England and the U.S.A.) are the direct lineal descendants of the northern tribes of Israel.

Is there anything in the Bible about tattoos?

Yes there is. Note that a tattoo is a permanent mark or design on the skin made by cutting the skin to produce scars or by inserting coloring matter under the skin. In Leviticus 19:28 it says, " And YOU must not make cuts in YOUR flesh for a deceased soul, and YOU must not put tattoo marking upon yourself. I am God." As we see, the Israelites were forbidden to engage in this practice. By complying with God's law not to disfigure their bodies, the Israelites would have stood out as different from other nations. In Egypt it was common to tattoo the names or symbols of their deities on their breast or arms. The prohibition would also have impressed upon them a proper respect for the human body as God's creation, to be used in honoring him.

How does one register a church in Kenya?

Presently there are over 7,000 applications to the government for recognition as a church. The Kenya government is hostile toward Christian churches and so takes its time of granting about 60-70 churches a month recognition. As you can see the numbers are not good. Many Christian pastors waiting on their official recognition have continued to have church and have been arrested and put in jail. If you are seeking to make application, obtain the required forms, submit them to the right office, and be prepared to pay 160,000 KS to for the license. There is a lot of fraud in Kenya. You may elect to use a qualified lawyer. In the mean time, to have legal authority it may be quicker and safer to contact an already licensed church, work under that church, pay a fee for the cover charge, and then wait until approved. In this way, at least you can collect some donations. The only downside to this, is if your cover wants a bigger cut and is greedy, he may terminate your association and turn you in to be arrested and put in jail. Many so-called groups there are not real churches, they are money-making scams. The best way to handle this is to get official government recognition. Or, go underground and take your risks.

Is a pastor of a United Pentecostal church obligated to reveal the financial status of his church?

---- == == * Yes, I believe they are subject to the law as any non-profit organization to have open records and financial accountability. If a pastor refuses to be financially accountable and open with the churches finances, i.e. offerings, tithes, the churches expenditures and any and all use of monies donated by their members, I would seriously question his motives and where the money is going. Not good. Violation of law in this country, and evidence of character flaw or selfish motives.
