  1. Past hour
  2. He keeps saying im,in a sect which I am,not. He also apposes Christ in that he argues against what Jesus says much like the pharisees.Seeing these are his works it appears that he is antichrist.
  3. Ordinarily, I deal with lust on a daily basis (as we are all generally up to our eyeballs in opportunities to lust these days... both incidental and deliberate). I spoke to a couple of customers in short shorts on matters about their mail delivery that wasn't so pressing that they it couldn't have waited. But I went ahead with the conversations (usually not a big deal, 1 John 1:9, and move on)... but this time I felt the guilt that I went out of my way to have these conversations... 1 John 1:9 confess to the Lord our sins and he is faithful and just to already be forgiving us for all sin. I know this is a weakness in faith issue (about 1 John 1:9) as we tend to worry if it's enough (which is weakness in faith in God's word that it is enough because he said it is). So, I guess I'm asking for prayer that my faith is stronger even more than my foolish lust. I love my LORD. And I want that love to trump all things and especially moments of temptation when it grabs me and it's hard to think of anything else. It truly is a war, between the flesh and the spirit. Thank you for your time and for your most coveted prayers.
  4. Thank you all for your input. After having read your posts and suggestions I feel full of relief. My husband and I have been attending services at our local Church (non Christadelphian) and have found them very inspiring and they feel ‘right’. Yes, I’m thinking I need to avoid a label, and will read my Bible with openminded joy. I do believe God will direct me in the right way as long as I remain teachable. Your input has been invaluable, I am most grateful
  5. First you said Jesus wasnt talking about the abomination of desolation tgat Daniel spoke of then you quoted Jesus saying he is talking about the abomination of desolation spoken of by daniel. LOL
  6. Well, I would say keep things simple when explaining things to them. Simple and sincere. Don't overwhelm them with Christianeze language. The change they see in you will also be a testimony to them.
  7. I found something that as I slept that felt like a round scab on my right temple (in my sideburn) that I picked at until it was gone. It's swollen a little and bled a bit. But I am afraid it might have been a tick that got on me somehow. I'm not certain. But if it is, those little buggers can cause big trouble. I'm hoping it was just a scab, but for the life of me I don't recall getting a pin sized injury right where my glasses temple usually is. Please pray for me. It's always something. Ugh. Thank you thank you, so much!!!
  8. If you have asked for forgiveness and are trusting (having faith) in Christ as your Savior, you are not going to hell. If you want to listen to a good pastor on YouTube, check out Dr. David Jeremiah, Turning Point Ministry. Or maybe look for him on TV. He is easy to understand, I think you would like him. But do try to find a good church, too.
  9. Acts is a historical account of the Church, not a template for how we “get” the Holy Spirit. We have the Epistles of the Apostles for that. Notice Paul was surprised they had not had the Holy Spirit through the hearing of the Gospel. They were actually still on Johns preaching of a pre crucified Christ. the birth of the Church with the Apostles and Jewish people from all over the world is just as historic and non repeating as the first coming of the Lord Jesus. The opening of the doors by Peter to the gentiles is historic and cannot be repeated or used as a guideline for how to get the Holy Spirit. We now have clear scripture that every believer on the Lord Jesus has the Holy Spirit, anyone who doesn’t is “none of his” Rom 8:9 You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ.
  10. seems like a perfect resemblence to me, even the lady agrees!
  11. Today
  12. schools out ( well not for another week here )
  13. It really is sad. To some people instances like that are their main contact with the Gospel. The precedent they set is really unfortunate.
  14. We should remember it is not God who delays the 'restoration process but MAN who FAILS to REPENT of his wickedness ! It will not be any different in the future, restoration will not happen automatically...there is a little matter of humility,submission and repentance !
  15. "He redeemed us in order that the blessing promised to Abraham would come to the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit." - Gal 3 "You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise." - Gal 3 "I do not want you to be unaware, brothers, that our forefathers were all under the cloud, and that they all passed through the sea. They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. They all ate the same spiritual food and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ." - 1 Cor 10 "God had planned something better for us, so that together with us they would be made perfect." - Hebrews 11 (Speaking about the OT people of faith in Jesus) Your understanding and insight is suspect.

    Welcome Oskeedos, may you be helped and blessed by your time here!
  17. Hi and a warm welcome to you!
  18. I think nobody likes the story. But a movie or book lives from two things. The conflicts that a person has with himself or others, as well as the development that is going through a figure. At the beginning, the detective is a negative character full of prejudice. Only in the course of action he understands that his actions have nothing to do with Christianity, and he is ready to change.
  19. There are some good, sound churches and ministries in Africa which I hear about from Christian Aid Mission. However, there are also the unsound churches. One of our members here who lives in Africa talked about a pastor requesting money before he would pray for people! Very sad and alarming situation.
  20. Ephesians 4:24 (NASB) and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth. The doing of righteousness is that that kills the old self. For the old must die so the new can live. For as much as we were free from righteousness before we became regenerated, just the same we are to be free from unrighteousness with the putting on of the new self. As before regeneration sin could be done without the heart being pricked and know that it had done wrong. Now when unrighteousness is done the heart gets pricked and it is shown what good and bad behavior are. What righteousness and unrighteousness are. Now as regenerated persons we are to choose the good and righteous action. Whereby by that action establishing peace. For the doing of righteousness puts on the new self and is death to the old. It is by faith do we reckon the old dead. It is by faith we reckon the new alive and as that faith is never to no avail we are told to put on the new man. Which was created in righteousness for the manifestation of righteousness. For righteousness pleases God and the doing of righteousness we are all called to. So today let us put on the new self a little more than yesterday. Let us walk in a little more righteousness than yesterday. For God’s eyes are always searching for the heart that is willing to do righteousness so He can be present and bless the heart with a joy and a peace that is beyond measure. So as those that want the blessings of God in our lives, let righteousness be the hallmark of our doing. Many blessings to all that would strive after the marks of putting on the new self which is the manifestation of righteous actions in all things. Much love in Christ, Not me
  21. That's wrong! A lie spread by the NRA and ultra-right republicans. New Zealand and Canada have reasonable gun laws. In Europe we also have good gun laws. Thus, in Europe, the sale of weapons from private to private is prohibited. Because the weapon is tied to a gun license. And only the authorities can transfer this firearm license from one person to another. After she has checked this person. Of course, mistakes can happen there as well (we are all human), but the risk of misusing a weapon is smaller than in the USA, for example.
