    • I'm lost in my journey and really like someone to point me in the right direction someone to talk about my struggles without fear of judgment someone I can trust where find that person 
    • Jesus Christ said, This birth in spirit is related to, To be born of God is to be born in spirit, and thus anyone receiving the spirit of God fulfills this prophecy, And thus whoever receives the spirit cannot sin, because he is caused to walk in the statutes and ordinances of God by the spirit of God. The removal of the heart of stone is the removal of evil desires, as the heart is where the desires are, otherwise called the "fleshly" nature within, which is the cause of sin, and a new heart is given with godly desires. This is why Paul stated that he was freed from sin and no longer walked in flesh, The fleshly nature that he no longer walked in was what he previously described as, And thus in receiving the spirit he became free of this evil nature, and he then began walking in the spirit, as no one that does not receive the spirit can walk in spirit, nor does he belong to Jesus Christ, nor is he able to stop sinning on his own. Jesus Christ not only came to atone for sin, but also bring an end to sin, As he is the only sacrifice that is able to cause a man to stop sinning as the blood of animals were not, And all this coincides with why Jesus Christ said, "be perfect" and "sin no more", And also coincides with what Jesus Christ said here, You can only be set free from sin and become perfected if you are born in the spirit, and thus receive its sanctification to never sin again, Receiving the holy spirit comes with a sign of having received him, usually speaking in different languages not known to the believer or prophesying, Notice how Saul was "turned into another man" when the spirit of the Lord entered him. This was a type of the baptism of the holy spirit that was later given at Pentecost, which was the "new spirit" spoken of in Ezekiel, which would cause whoever receives him to also be "turned into another man", yet also "perfected", which is what made this "new spirit" distinct from the spirit given to prophets before the offering up of Jesus Christ. The holy spirit is not just a metaphor that many people foolishly mistaken him for, but he is a literal spirit that enters the body and causes sanctification. Just as there are unclean spirits that can enter the body and possess the body to cause evil, so there is holy spirit that enters the body and brings forth sanctification, comfort, guidance from within, and even power, This holy spirit that is given to the elect is of the same kind of holy spirit that guided the Israelites, who was an angel of God, And as such, each believer that is baptized in the holy spirit receives a distinct spirit that is holy, hence why this passage states that each spirit within a prophet is subject to the control of the prophet, And just as the holy spirit that guided the Israelites did not forgive sins, So does the holy spirit that is given to the elect does not forgive sins either, Ananias lied to the holy spirit within Peter, and because of this the holy spirit took his life. And even if it were possible for a man of God having the holy spirit to sin, just as Ananias was destroyed because of his sin against the holy spirit, so would that man of God also be destroyed, This is why in Hebrews it is also stated, that even if it were possible for a man to fall away who already shared in the holy spirit, it would be impossible for him to ever be granted repentance, If you still find yourself sinning, then you truly have not received the holy spirit. Do not be deceived into thinking that you can still continually sin and somehow God will always grant forgiveness, as even in Hebrews we have this warning, And indeed all have sinned, which is why it is said, This is why we must repent, which means to stop sinning, So that we can then be forgiven and cleansed from all iniquity. And once you stop sinning by repenting, then can you seek to be baptized in the holy spirit, which will free you from sin. It is only possible to be freed from sin by his spirit.
    • We know that God knows who is going to heaven and who is not even before we are born. But I have some questions 1. What happens if we as Christians go off of His plan? Is that possible? 2. Does God have a plan for the unbelievers life as well  the born again believers?
    • God's Word has no borders. God's Spirit has only ONE meaning for example with the death penalty. It is up to Christians to seek out those truths...IOW, God's intended meaning is not dependent on culture.
    • In this day and age it would be extremely unusual for no one to have heard of the Lord Jesus Christ, or seen a church, or a cross, especially with the proliferation of the internet.  Granted that is not the Gospel, but in reality Christ Himself is the Gospel. So at the very least, curiosity would demand to know more about this Christ. Anyhow here is what Scripture says (Acts 17:24-31; Romans 1:18-25). 24God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 25Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; 26And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; 27That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: 28For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. 29Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. 30And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: 31Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained: whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. =============================== 18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
