  1. Past hour
  2. A couple of things come to mind. We need more than just food to be happy. And unemployment is at historic lows here in the USA.
  3. The best thing you can do is pray. Revivals have been started by one person interceding. Pray.
  4. Hi Thomas, Well, I have seen the case ( although just once ) where a topic was brought back into the general forums from a member who had been 'graduated to Heaven'. The topic was relevant, so therefore deemed that it was appropriate. General rule of thumb, is if answering a question for someone looking for answers, would be for members who are still showing they're active. Accessing their profile gives the status. You can always start a thread of your own. Just something else to consider, to make a fuller experience of being a member here. God bless! Shalom, David/BeauJangles
  5. After reading, and in prayer with this chapter it really brought me to: For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. https://biblehub.com/1_john/2-16.htm
  6. I think "Son of man" alludes to the fact that he came to serve us.
  7. Now faith is the substance of things -----for, the evidence of things not seen.
  8. True......and all saved by Grace through Faith,just like us......all sins covered by the Blood.....just like us....Almost all sin is Willfull and David’s sins were especially despicable....had he not been called out by the Prophet, who knows if he would ever be repentant.....he paid an extremely high cost for his willful sins, as will we.....It does not take away the free gift of Salvation .That was obtained by Faith.
  9. That is why I was glad to see the information about prayer language. What I've been doing ever since I was a kid I was always just alone. I had no idea for a while what it was. Latter I believed it was just one on one talking with God. And then I see this post about prayer language. And the place in Corinthians where it makes it sound like it's a real language.
  10. But you should have plenty of fellowship in your daily church work, shouldn't you? Don't pastors constantly have meetings to go to and ministries to tend to? Seems like you'd be around people a lot. Are you married?
  11. @nzkev Are you still here, bro? That is one line for one word. Thought I'd explain cuz it looks like two
  12. For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our---------
  13. Yes you did it right and I give you a thumb up to.
  14. I normally stay within the last couple of months except for the Bible Study area.
  15. Forgive me if my opinion differs. Most of those speaking in tongues are making a show and not for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I came to a point in my life that when am in a service and the preacher starts speaking in tongues, I see him as a hypocrite and those shouting Amen, as accomplices. Many people have found the church of God as a lucrative business where they play with people's intelligence and manipulate the scripture to confuse them. When Holy Spirit filled the apostles and disciples on the day of Pentecost, they were given the miraculous gift of “speaking in tongues,” that is, being able to speak other languages as Acts 2: 4, 6 show. A listener was able to hear his own language and thus understand the message of God. They were not speaking a language nobody understands. In Acts 2: 6 – 11. speaking in tongues served to edify or educate others, especially unbelievers. 1 Corinthians 14: 22, 26. It was not done for show. People are right to question speaking in tongues today. Why? Unlike the listeners mentioned in Acts 2, people today do not understand what is said by those who claim to speak in tongues. The Early Christians speaking in tongues served a useful purpose as persons speaking different languages understood the good news in their respective languages and could accept the good news. What sense does it make to speak a foreign language to an audience that speaks English as is done today? Do they even speak a foreign language? Who understands? 1 Corinthians 13: 8 indicate to us that speaking in tongues was to be done away with, cease, after the apostles’ death. Statistics reveal that the gospel of God’s Kingdom is being preached globally in hundreds of languages today, by word of mouth, printed materials etc, and is supported by God’s Holy Spirit. Matthew 24: 14; Acts 1: 8. But it is not done through miraculous speaking in tongues today. Let's not be confused.
  16. I am not wired that way. Certainly we need to walk close with God but I need human relationships too.
  17. We do have a Bible Study area, the subject first listed, in which only staff members can introduce subjects but anyone can answer. Look through the subjects that are listed for one that interests you. Some are old but are worthwhile reading. I do a lot of studying just researching the Scriptures that have been introduced. God often bring verses to mind that I check and quote when I answer them. Often God modifies my theology here. I also attend one in our area and our pastor's sermons are excellent Bible teaching, going verse by verse though whole books of the Bible.
  18. Godismyloveforever, Did i do that right? I mean the thumb up tag... thing... Yea, you can tell I'm new to this whole responding in any way whatsoever way. Hope this is right. Yours in Christ, Thomas
  19. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not----------
  20. I also know someone who was saved due to the fact that she had an abortion when she was a teen. 25 years later she still mourns for the child on its anniversary in spite of the fact that God has forgiven her. She has trouble forgiving herself. She has 3 kids now and is a terrific mom. If she is not saved I would invite her to church or to a Bible study with you. If she had been a church goer and is repenting, she needs to be restored. But if she claims to be a Christian and is boasting about what she did because she thinks she should be able to do what she pleases with "her" body, then and only then are you to avoid her according to Scripture. After all, the "tissue" that was removed has unique DNA that in not hers, so she had paid to have a baby murdered who was a unique human being with great potential..
  21. He he. Now I get a sense of what my glass of orange juice I'm drinking right now went through.
