  1. Past hour
  2. Never heard the plagues of Egypt likened to wrath; the flood, but not the plagues. Wrath maybe likened to drowning Pharaoh's army in the red sea, but the flood is the only analogy to wrath so stated.
  3. What do I think? Doesn't matter what I think, but I will state that for me it is not about I, but about God. I need not be satisfied by God. I need be humbled and remain humble in appreciation of He, Him, the I Am. Have fun working on songs! The best of songs written ( in my opinion) was written by a twelve year old sick young man. The story behind "Ain't No Grave" by Brother Claude Ely is a grand testimony that worship ( Songs of praise to God ) may come from many sources. As to the present effort it reminds me of one which is presented turned about the other way, (He first before I) from Bill and Gloria Gaither. Lyrics from Gloria and melody from Bill is their usual pattern. The chorus of which is: Chorus -from the Gaithers: Because He lives, I can face tomorrow, Because He lives, all fear is gone; Because I know He holds the future, And life is worth the living, Just because He lives! (Might note the emphasis on He and how I is secondary to Him) and Refrain - from Miles about Mary Magdalene: And He walks with me, and He talks with me, And He tells me I am His own, And the joy we share as we tarry there, None other has ever known. Take care grow in effort by prayer by reading thinking on the word of God, plus read the histories behind the greater songs, worship, by many psalmists - Watts, Wesley, as well as the story of Spafford and others led to write, including the hired writers, much as Miles who with a few minutes of enlightened awareness wrote In The Garden. Please be encouraged to learn and to be become talented as well as enlighted by God as songs of praise to Him are written that are sound doctrinal declaration.
  4. You see, you really could not answer the question as you know perfectly well that you do ask the Lord to forgive you for your shortcomings . Pride is at the issue here sir. You have to put it aside and humble yourself, as you can do nothing of your own. Yes and I agree that the Holy Spirit is there to help us in our weakness, but it is with the mouth that we confess and the heart we believe. I do hope you are confessing your sins to one another and praying for the sick if they may have committed any sins as James is instructing. A believer do not live in willful sin and wallow in it, but he is still is surrounded by the elements of the world. We cannot be to proud and puff up that we can be perfect in all we do. The prodigal learn that lesson the hard way. James 5 King James Version (KJV) 14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. 16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
  5. that's preety sad what Jim Carrey did with the painting preety sad, but all we can do is pray for him
  6. I agree with everything said here, good points here
  7. interesting thoughts here, I wonder if that is true or not
  8. Left some out, enjoy.. John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. Romans 9:8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. 1 John 2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. 1 John 3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 1 John 3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. 2 Timothy 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 3 John 1:11 Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God. 1 Peter 2:12 Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation. 1 Corinthians 5:5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. Proverbs 26:11 As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly. 2 Peter 2:22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
  9. God hears us when we pray, he never leaves us nor forsakes us he never stops listening to his children,
  10. Then go to the prayer request thread and ask for prayer. God listens to them...
  11. Once again, IF the scriptures I've quoted / cited over and over did not exist... THEN those who oppose OSAS would have a valid argument; that MAYBE we COULD have everlasting life... or that IT DEPENDS ON our remaining faithful and CONTINUING to endure... B UT !!! These scriptures DO exist! And thank the LORD GOD that they do! John 3:16–18 (AV) 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. Ephesians 2:8–10 (AV) 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. John 10:27–29 (AV) 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 no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. 1 Corinthians 5:5 (AV) 5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. 1 John 2:19 (AV) 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. Jeremiah 32:40 (AV) 40 And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me. These completely take out of the hands of mankind the ability to get saved or to remain saved. Period. All other arguments ignore these scriptures for the sake of believing what they want to believe despite the facts in evidence to the contrary. And it is to either ADD to the Grace of God with works from themselves (which God repudiates) or for imposing works on others (which God also repudiates). IMHO this should be placed in the Apologetics threads only where people who do not believe the Bible can shmooze.
  12. What part of hasn't seen or known him don't you understand? What part of shall not inherit the kingdom of God do you not understand? Calling Jesus the king of OSAS is a false accusation against the Lord, and associating him with that false teaching borders on blasphemy.
  13. I wonder how long it will take until you all learn that it is in fact I what am last
  14. We used to have variety shows now we have comedy shows, talk shows, Reality shows... Bunch of junk
  15. Alive with Christ 1And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 4But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 8For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. One in Christ 11Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; 12That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: 13But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. 14For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; 15Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; 16And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: 17And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. 18For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. A Temple in the Lord 19Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; 21In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
  16. God with us is Christ in us, as this is in us, and it is flesh no more.. Colossians 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: 2 Corinthians 5:16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 1 Corinthians 15:47 The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven.

  18. You are answered, the Holy Spirit makes utterings for us, and it is the Holy Spirit that makes intervention for us forever. Also the Holy Spirit forgave us all the debt, and makes sure we do not add to it again. If you don't like the answer OK, but asking again receives the same answers. Ephesians 4:28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. Galatians 4:9 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Now your question. Are you ashamed of the evil you say you cant stop doing to others, or not ashamed and is why you say we all cant stop it and need to ask forgiveness and never can stop doing the things we need to ask forgiveness for. Do you think God wants us to never stop working ill to our neighbour, did He show us this way to do all things well, or you see some crooked examples somehow ? Romans 6:21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. Romans 13:10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. If you think you can ignore my question, after I answered you, don't think you can ask anything else and receive any answers.
  19. The Law was given in absolute application to all. Then the Messiah paid the price for sin. Now the Law applies only to mankind that does not believe in the Messiah. The Law is essentially God's standard for God. Man cannot possibly meet that standard. And if man does not accept Grace, then the God standard judges him.
  20. The question is how you got saved? Did you get saved because God chose you and you are therefore of the elect, or did you save yourself or help Jesus save you by praying a prayer or making a public confession?
  21. I often do battle (skirmish) with people (family mostly) who diasgree and believe there are good people in the world. My argument is that they are good at containing their beast. Or that they do so as a habit. But we fool ourselves if we believe humanity is anything but evil with potential good at best.
  22. "The security of the believer is paramount to a right relationship with the redeemer. It was not by anyone's efforts that they were truly saved, likewise, there is nothing they can do to maintain it. It is totally in the Lord's hands when we place our trust in Him. It is His job to preserve us. Just like it says that the Holy Spirit seals us unto the day of redemption. We are sealed. Yeshua told us that no one could snatch us out of His hand. Likewise, He said that no one could snatch us out of the Father's hand. I see two hands cupped and the believer being protected within those cupped hands." Nobody places their trust in Him, His trust is in us, that is totally in the Lords hands, and anything less than that is not at all. The Holy Spirit knows those who are His, they are sealed, the others have a leaky seal. Nobody takes His out of His hand, but sop many force their way into HIs hand, they do so by violence, and the sealed may receive from the Lord the spirit of revelation, and they may not... Matthew 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violenttake it by force. John 10:26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. 2 Timothy 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. Matthew 25:44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, whensaw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, 14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory. 15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, 16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; 17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: Hey are delivered to satan, and by the good works they see, and they may glorify God in the day of visitation if they take heed to the truth, if not they will not.. 1 Peter 2:12 Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation. 1 Corinthians 5:5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. "If all you say is true, why was Jesus the King Of OSAS when He said those that simply believe in Him “ HATH Eternal Life and shall NEVER be condemned”. How does one define “ never” in your crowd? John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passedfrom death unto life. 1 John 3:14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. 1 John 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is notof God, neither he that loveth not his brother. 1 John 3:15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
