  8. Trinity, the Word of God, and Muslims

    At one time in my life, before I submitted to the transforming power of the Word, I believed like you....but I was wrong. Very wrong. God revealed His true nature to me through various events in my life and through His authoritative Word. Start with the Gospel of John, written by the Apostle John, the one whom Jesus loved, while in Ephesus during a time (around AD 85 after the destruction of the temple) when the deity of Jesus Christ was being questioned and undermined by the Gnostics mostly. John wrote his gospel account with one purpose...to make it clear that Jesus Christ is God. AND John recorded these words of Christ... John 3:31 "The one who comes from above is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The one who comes from heaven is above all. 32 He testifies to what he has seen and heard, but no one accepts his testimony. 33 The man who has accepted it has certified that God is truthful. 34 For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit. 35 The Father loves the Son and has placed everything in his hands. 36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God's wrath remains on him." John 5:24 "I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life. Read the Gospel of John and the Book of Signs that is contained within it...the seven signs and the seven "I AM" statements of Christ... and imagine John as he penned those words, the last eyewitness of the ministry of Jesus Christ, the one whom Jesus loved; the one who was at the base of the cross with the mother of Jesus...the pillar of the early church. Those words are the words of an eyewitness translated from the original Greek. John's purpose is very evident...he revealed the true nature of Jesus Christ as God in the flesh!!! Why does Jesus have to be God? Only God can grant the forgiveness of sins. No one but God can live a perfect life without sin, making Himself the spotless Lamb who took our place at a sinners cross! ...and He did this freely and for all men who accept His free gift of GRACE. Why is it so hard to believe that God would reach down His hand to restore us into fellowship with Him transforming us to reflect His glory? Maybe because none of us are God. Seek and you will find...if you seek with a pure heart and desire for the one and only TRUTH. God Bless, wayne

    May the Lord bless you... Giving $$$ and food is easy (and needed) but do you have a sick neighbor who could use a dinner cooked for them? How about a homebound elderly person? You know what's fun? Buying the dinner for teh car behind you in the McD's drive-through. Pray and seek God's guidance. KingsCupBearer said it well..."Seek the Lord and heed the Holy Spirit who will lead you into all truth." Simply look for an opportunity. Ask the Lord to open your eyes to the needs of others.

    Exactly bro. We don't fast for a reward but rather God has given us a tool to connect with HIM on a more deeper level. Praise God! BY the way...Dave, have I mentioned how much I enjoyed posting along side you today? I have really missed it...and how I do love you bro.
  11. interested in fasting

    Once again, not to boast but to glorify God... My dear brother Matthitjah (whom I love dearly) participates in a minsitry that feeds the homeless. Right in the worse parts of our nation's Capital. I can't say for sure BUT my bet is Dave doesn't go to feed himself but rather to feed and serve the homeless. That is a fast...

    Could it mean that a truly humble person recognizes his weaknesses as well as his strengths? Paul did this, did he not...when he wrote of his struggle with the flesh in his letter to the Romans.
  13. Where does baptism come from?

    Neb, it seems to me that throughout the Books of Moses, washing with water was a prerequisite for approaching God in the Holy place. That of coarse was before the Lamb of God was slain and before the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Regardless, what I found interesting is how the Levites and Priests were sent to John the Baptist asking him why he was baptising. They were confused because not only was John baptising gentiles but he was baptising Jews. They were confused as to what authority John would baptise these Jews, who according to their understanding, were already righteous and needed only ritual washing...not a complete soak that was reserved only for the non-Jew. John the Baptist answered them... "I baptize in water, but among you stands One whom you do not know...this is the One who baptizes in the Holy Spirit." That sort of sums it up for me.
