    Things For Christians To Be Partakers Of.

    And Amen! Love for the breathren, and a heart to sow precious seed to the lost. In the world (ministering, sowing), but not of the world (set apart) As the few highlighted verses above show, as soldiers in Christ's army, (if your not AWOL), you will be wounded, engaging the enemy. Rev 3, 15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou were cold or hot. We 'signed up', so let's get into the game/war......................and not go AWOL! And amen....

    Hi douge. I personally believe when they were saved, born again, they were no longer needful of Jewish ordinances. Same with Gentiles, whatever they were doing, could not gain God's grace. Faith alone in Christ alone was what was needed. Those whom were circumcised need not go through medical treatment to change back, from a moral obligation felt to demonstrate being no longer obligated to circumcision. (There were methods used, even back then,called 'epispasm' ) And Gentiles need not be circumcised, though the Judaizers preached it was necessary for salvation. The new circumcision was internal, the heart. Jer;4,4 Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings. You said; The context of this passage is abiding. If one is called to the Lord as a Jew, then continue as a Jew. It could possibly be that as a Jew, one would continue to keep the ordinances, the feasts. They were to keep the commandments of the Lord. Not sure just what you are saying, or implying, but the new testament church was not about continuing in the old Jewish traditions. Abiding is better understood in John 15. Joh 15:1-5 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. Abide; to stay in a given place, abide continue, dwell, remain. As believers, we are grafted into the true vine, Jesus, as were all believers, even converted Jews, or those Gentiles. Abiding in scripture in first Corin, 7, 18 is not about abiding, in my interpretation. I do not understand how you get that, unless you believe yourself we should still be keeping (abiding) in the Jewish practices. "The context of this passage is abiding. If one is called to the Lord as a Jew, then continue as a Jew. It could possibly be that as a Jew, one would continue to keep the ordinances, the feasts. They were to keep the commandments of the Lord". Your quote above does not result in salvation for Jews. Perhaps I simply misunderstood you.

    Critters Falling Through Roofs!

    I've read of that happening from others, also. Hard to imagine, must have been scary for a kid of ten. I remember as a kid seeing in an old set of Encyclopedia Britannica's, a picture of a steel clothes line pole with a straw sticking through the pole, poking out each side. The tornado winds were said to have caused it. I can still see that picture vividly after sixty years.

    Critters Falling Through Roofs!

    We live out in the boonies. Years back while still in our 'temporary' trailer house, we often got visitors from the wild kingdom. Had a snake come in the house once, crawled into the kitchen, up to the top of a file cabinet, where my wife's and daughters bird cage sat. It killed my daughters hand fed tame cockatiel, and swallowed my wife's favorite singing canary. Couldn't get out of the cage with it's swollen belly. Caught that perpetrator and encouraged him to leave. Kids didn't make blanket tents and sleep on the living room floor anymore! Another time one evening I was laying in bed reading and next to me where my wife would later be laying, a juvenile opossum came crawling very non nonchalantly across the bed, over my legs and walked down the hall. Turns out there was a pair that crawled up the hot water vent and had their litter in the plumbing chase, and it was no easy chore persuading the whole family to vacate. We now live our home we built, with a concrete floor, sealed with a hundred tubes of calk, and no more extra tenants (Thank You Jesus!).
  6. He is already there, knowing all things, knowing your need of a mothers comfort. His ways are not man's ways. “Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.” (Matthew 6:8) “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor [or Comforter] to be with you forever – the Spirit of Truth.” (John 14:16) “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” (Matthew 6:26) “If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!” (Matthew 7:11) Deuteronomy 32:11 "Like an eagle that stirs up its nest, That hovers over its young, He spread His wings and caught them, He carried them on His pinions. “I will be a Father to you and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” (2 Corinthians 6:18 & 2 Samuel 7:14) Luke 13:34 "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, just as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not have it! “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God!” (1 John 3:1)

    Contemplative Prayer- What is it?

    God talks through His word, (.) again, (.) The Holy Spirit happens to be God, 'and the word was God'. When His word 'that I have hid in my heart', consciously, then sub-consciously, hears-sees-observes something, in my mind something may 'click' and I am brought to recall 'His word' regarding that which I have heard/observed. That still small voice is telling me to listen to His word that is inside me, bringing forth 'truth' to apply to my situation, my problem/questions. It's like, I know what to do, I can sense/feel God's leading, based upon His word in my heart/mind, affecting my decisions/actions. It is not an 'aaaaaauuuuuummmmm' experience, it is TRUTH within me, hidden/stored/cached in my mind/brain/memory/heart, guiding my thoughts (take every thought captive) to truth! Red lights go off in my head when hearing false doctrine, even though I may not know exactly what I heard is false, the light (of God) in my heart, stored, is screaming beware. God is light, and in Him, and His word, there is no darkness! At all!! Do what works for you. The more truth you have scanning your built in hard drive (brain) the better you will be protected from lies/heresy/darkness. God is light!

    Funny to Me

    When I walk out of my house and feel myself getting wet, I tell my wife it's going to rain. But I still don't even trust that forecast....... Been seeing a lot of rare double rainbows lately. This one below happens to be my desktop background..........

    As I also understood you, ayin. I had to look up about Kazakhstan as I was ignorant of their predicament. Sounds really tragic. I just had to reply to the statement; "Nuclear bombs are nowhere near as dangerous as people think they are", thus the comment about the Japan bombing, as I'm sure the Japanese would disagree. I believe the poster may have meant the modern nukes have less fall out and are 'cleaner' with less collateral damage, as compared to WWII. Hope we never have to find out.

    Right, but I wouldn't mention that to those who were living in Nagasaki and Hiroshima?.............
