    • I believe the context your addressing is also demanding the overall aspect of letter context being persecution an the desire to return to the Law... if that is the overall parameter then what the writer of Hebrews has done (because of their immaturity) is set the notion to be absurd as the law was never meant to save anyone and Christ is the only way to be saved... for the assurance lies in fact Christ work is complete to the saving of souls that come to Him and no one can change that - nothing created that is! Who can hang God upon the cross again? 
    • I dined as you have Willa ... I know Your resolve! Then is simply nothing to go back to...  
    • Agreed. Isn't it funny how the resurrection / changing / rapture  happens at the LAST trumpet on the LAST day and yet some people keep insisting that it happens first or nearly first?  They offer no reasonable explanation of Paul's statement of the trump of God as the last trumpet nor do they have anything biblical for Jesus' declaration of the resurrection happening on the last day. If someone is truly interested in the timing of our immortality and gathering to Him, then prioritize discovering what the trumpet of God is and when He sounds it.  It will be on the last day.  The last day of what?  Start there because there's no question that it happens then.
    • Oh, the joy that can dwell in the lives of the saints when our understanding of the work of God in us is clearly seen in His Word. The learning of the greatest lessons come the hardest and the latest, all due to instruction in patience, from which of the Lord’s provisions His Spirit uses to “conform” believers the most in bringing forth the most pleasant of His fruit that manifests the strength of faith—joy!   “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work that you may be perfect and complete (mature), lacking nothing” (Jam 1:2-4). Every difficult occurrence in the lives Christians, along with those deemed self-incurred, has already been arranged to result to our advantage, and it is the one whose joy has been learned in the forging of the trials of hardness (mine thus far losing four immediate family members within a 15 year period) who’s understanding of God’s intents will “shine” (Mat 5:16) the brightest light on the path of the lost to Him!   -NC     His Perfect Purpose If our hearts were in happy fellowship with the Father, and in cooperation with His wondrous ways and arrangements, which are all for the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ, we could not refuse or dissent from His calling on us for our quota to the great circle of His purpose, in which we should feel ourselves included. If we are really and heartily interested in His purpose and ways, and carefully entering in them, and devoted to them, when we found that He considered it necessary that Lazarus, or even one much dearer to us, should sleep, we should, though unable to see why we are so heavily taxed, bow our heads and submit to any call on us, because reckoning on the wisdom of His will and counsel (Eph 1:11), and knowing that He is making “all things work together,” are not only “for good” to us, but for His glory. I must get to this high level, or I never can comprehend or become resigned to the varied discipline by which our Father is carrying out His own purpose, while severing us from the “old man,” practically setting the flesh aside, “that the life of the Lord Jesus may be made manifest in our body.” It is an exercise to our faith, until we get able to rest in the assurance that His way (which involves all that He knows will occur within a believer’s life—NC) is perfect, and the only true and effectual way for subduing the particular kind of nature which each has. Faith in His ways is required before we have intelligence as to His ways. I must believe in the skill of a physician before I can confidently submit to perhaps very painful remedies. But when I come to understand his object, and the necessity for those remedies, it is not only faith in his skill, but appropriation of his mode of treatment. It is long with some of us before the appropriation comes; and it is plain that we should be miserable under the treatment, if we had not faith, or in other words, confidence in the skill. If you have this confidence, you can cheerfully submit, even though, like Job, you may not approve. But when you have real fellowship with His purpose, you will approve; it will be grateful to your heart to bow, and you will find that what your Father considers the right thing can be nothing else than the best for you. “For we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose” (Rom 8:28). - J B Stoney   Miles J Stanford devotional:  http://www.abideabove.com/hungry-heart/  
    • It is apparent your buttons were pushed  and you are being driven to justify yourself ... you are doing as you said you would do and have brought it into a personal arena - by which we are instructed by TOS not to do... the issue lies on the fact are you? Concern for how you are perceived by others is a self intensive area and should be examined by motives of why am I concerned here and how will it serve to the Glory of God! I sometimes push buttons to see if what I expect to be true underlayment is in fact so   It is only done so that I can quietly and effectively (subtly) minister to them in their need of Biblical sight in that place within they do not see....  Love, Steven

      Hi Theo,
      I just finished reading your cry for help in prayer, girl what you wrote sounds like what I too am living with, nearly word for word!  I am sorry that you are going through this, I KNOW how hurtful and grievous it is to bare.  If I didn't know any better I could easily say you are me (only I am 64 and have been married to the man for 42 years).
      It is so hard when you are crying out for prayer and all people want to do is throw scriptures at you when you are drowning! 
      Here is a short video on You Tube by Brene' Brown on Empathy, it is great, so true and yet humorous; it is less than 3 minutes long.  I love it!
      Yes, I can pray for you because I understand.  I am married to a headstrong narcissist.
      I too am having ear problems, noise intolerance and anxiety, just found out today that they are connected; who would have thought that, I sure didn't!?

      Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.

      Not feeling school this semester. Fed up, burnt out and just thinking I bit off more than I can chew. A lot going on, and I am finding it harder to cope with the physical pain since starting back to work. Could use lots of prayer....
