    How Do I warn Others?

    It is pretty obvious the Lord has made your salvation very real to you, and laid it on your heart, and you have a great need to share this "great news" to those who are not aware. I personally am also concerned when discussing the gospel, to not point fingers at anybody, but myself. I usually simply give my reason for loving God. I share and not shout. I explain how I didn't know the truth, but now I do, and am just a beggar, telling another beggar, where to find bread. I give the simple gospel. I was lost, and now I'm found. I cried out. And He heard. And He drew me, and HE showed me the truth, through many other faithful believers, the good news that God loves us, and sacrificed His son to save us, from eternity in hell. Hell is real. The word is true. Trust God's word. Believe. Have faith in His word, to us. Then I give them the word, an amplified bible, easy to read. Tell them "don't trust me, trust what you read" Then, really pray for them. Intercede. (It works) And trust God to do His part.

    What Does It Mean To Be Spirit Filled

    What Does It Mean To Be Spirit Filled? Being born from above, my spirit was made alive unto God. I died. I reckon this. Now, I live, but not I, Christ lives in me. God's spirit resides in me. In every believer. I control the volume and reception. I chose. Walking in the flesh, living for self, quenches and grieves the spirit. Disobedience, the wrong thing, brings less spirit control. Abiding in Christ, walking in the spirit, living, seeking God's targets/mark, doing the right thing (righteousness), more spirit control. An empty jar, then can be filled, completely, with something. But, only if it was empty. You cannot fill it with something, if it is already full. (of self) When my life is filled with so much of "my own understanding", desires and goals, "good things", self, I don't leave much room (in the jar) for the spirit of God. To move. When I abide in Christ, as an empty branch, and the nutrients flow upwards through the true vine, into the abiding branch, I bear much fruit. The Lord is the one producing the fruit. I simply bear it. This glorifies the Father. (We all chose. Every day. Moment by moment. Abide. or not ) A tiny obedience, abide, and you are the will of God. "Filled" with God's spirit. Filled! No room for self. What Does It Mean To Be Spirit Filled? simple. empty of self...
  3. I really enjoyed your post. Each child hears the voice of God unique to them only. I believe. A blind and deaf person, cannot hear or read the word, and can only feel the word, but the Holy Spirit delivers the voice. Proverbs 3:5-7 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and He shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil. Somehow, I think it is important (to me, anyway) to not always KNOW the "exact' will of God. (Or what I perceive to be) Simply obey, and then.....Faith..... My one tiny bit of obedience is the will of God. Step by step. No agenda. No plan... But! What do I do Lord? Trust me.

    Baptism in the Holy Spirit

    Jesus Christ and Him crucified!..........only "The prosperity teachings is just one of those false gospels." Agreed! Preached by many with good intentions, in ignorance, leading many astray. They're everywhere. I suppose then, to answer my question and understand what you are saying, you said, "(Then) one afternoon during prayer I was anointed as in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. ´╗┐It felt like oil had been poured onto my head and it ran all the way down to the souls of my feet and then started back up again. This is not something you claim by faith etc, when it happens you feel it physically and you know it has happened. There is no ambiguity. You may accept the Lord but when you get your act together correctly the Lord accepts you !" Are you saying you were not saved, and then you were anointed by the Holy Spirit (correctly) and got saved, confirmed by the feelings of oil going up and down your body? Or, are you saying you were saved, but were not baptized by the Holy Spirit, and then you knew you were due to the feeling of oil on your head, etc? You said, "(You may accept the Lord) but when you get your act together correctly the Lord accepts you !" What does that mean? Was I not given the Holy Spirit when I accepted the Lord, when I was saved? Did I need to do something, add something to my faith, to receive more of the Holy Spirit? When scripture says to be "filled with the Spirit" what you mean? And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever. John 14:16 Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Or this, If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? Luke 11:13 Does God give more of the Holy Spirit to some, and less to others? Or is it more on the part of the believer, who is walking in the spirit, serving Christ, and not walling in the flesh, serving sin?

    Baptism in the Holy Spirit

    Could you define/explain "get your act together correctly" please, so I can know if I have been accepted by the Lord. Or not. Or have I misunderstood you in your enthusiasm?

    For sure. Some by death. Some to eternal life.

    wish i were home

    You sure about that ?............(For God so loved the world............, and look what happened to Him) 1 John, 3, 13 "Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you." John 15, 18-21 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.

    Abortion and the seared conscience

    Again, John 3, 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."
  9. "Has Anyone Noticed That Time Seems To Have Accelerated?" I feel the older I get, the less time there is in a day. But not really. It's just I can't accomplish as much in a day. Anymore. No, I don't think time has accelerated. It's just, I have decelerated........

    Question for you all regarding prayer

    Whoever I take dislike to, or those evil compared to say, an abortionist, anyone I sense using me, no mater the issue, I have learned that God would have me pray for them. Pray for your enemies. Don't have to like them. Just love them. Pray without ceasing. Anybody and everybody, that God would bless them, in His own way, and not as the world would. (Real blessings can be tough) Some medicine is sweet. Some medicine is bitter. Both are for the good of my health. Matt 5, 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
  11. Great questions. Perhaps I can bring this up to my friends at our church. Would you mind telling me what has been the best way you personally have been helping single parents, teaching about Christian living, or preparation for marriage. What has your church done that works, so I may suggest that to mine. Thanks, Who me.
  12. John 3:19-21 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. Thank you, angels4u, for sharing the truth, this light, in an ever darkening world. The dark history, of our ancestors, we may not have known, but need to know and understand the truth. Many seek answers or just curious and look for their DNA ancestry. Personal history through birth parents. That's cool. After reading this article, I was thinking, wouldn't it be cool to also/rather know about the one loyal to his faith, that was moved of God, who shared with me the seeds of spiritual truth, that led/helped to my spiritual birth. And then, wondered who helped this man, planting a seed, sowing, in the good soil, leading to his birth, on back into past history. A faithful missionary or evangelist, mom or dad. Maybe one of the apostles? Will have to wait to find out. But we do know the start of this new birth, the beginning. Hebrews 12:2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. The shocking news above, past cultures, PRESENT cultures, help me to really realize how very blessed I am, how grateful I am, to have been given light, to have been given eternal life. Of all those who have been born, and died, over all history. So few have seen. Why me, Lord. Share the Light!
  13. If Jesus were to come to earth and go on worldwide T.V. what would ..... Jesus wept...

    Don't limit yourself. Show interest. Your future best friend you haven't met yet may be the mailman or the clerk at the corner store. Might even be that guy who offended you in church. Remember, God is in control. You can be a friend to anybody. Remember the good Samaritan. Become a sower of the seed, the good news. Share your interest's. Wise as a serpent, harmless as a dove. Purpose in your heart to be friendly. "A friend is a present you give to yourself."
