  1. Peace comes only from Jesus. Only from above. God wants everything you're willing to give of yourself. If you can only read a verse or two from the scripture a day then start with that. If you can only spend a few minutes in heartfelt prayer, then just do that. If you want peace, the peace that only comes from above and from the Lord Jesus. Then you have to spend time with him. Maybe the tug is God asking you for some more of your time with him...maybe?
  2. I have tried to edit the post above, but it will not let me. If a Mod could make sure the post above is correct in size and then delete this post I would be grateful.
  3. Simply put there are about to big changes in your life ( probably at your work or what would be considered your work ) and God is letting you know ahead of time it's not random it's consequences from him that he is allowing to come upon people. Death in dreams is rarely literal. When people around me dream of co-workers dying it usually manifests as people being fired or getting in serious trouble. Taking a different car than your boss is just showing you will have a different reaction and response to what is happening than those in positions of authority around you. Any other questions just ask. I will pray about your questions and get back to you. But remember, God doesn't give us a spirit of fear but of love, power, and a sound mind. If it was of God, then have peace. When the dream starts to manifest in real life he will bring it back to your memory.
  4. JOB 33 14-15 For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; JOEL 2:28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: JOHN 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
  5. Jude 22 And on some have compassion, making a distinction; but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.
  6. I was going to post to this as well but OneLight said almost word for word what I was going to say, so I will just quote him.
  7. Could you please speak more of this? 9 wars is a lot. Would just love to know what the 9 wars are you are speaking of.

    Tongues.

    The same could be said of Paul and the other Apostles when they spoke in tongues but that didn't mean it wasn't real and biblical or them. 1. I think that's why they call it faith. 😛 2.There was no way for Thomas to verify that the other 10 Apostles were telling the truth that Jesus rose from the dead. But they were telling the truth and Thomas was chided by Christ for his lack of faith at simply being told the truth without any evidence. This standard that is being put forth could be used to negate all gifts of the spirit. This to me sounds like the kind of doctrine for people who need everything to make sense to there rational fleshly mind and sometimes the things of God will seem like foolishness to the rational fleshly mind.

    Tongues.

    Tongues doesn't place a reliance on the sensual but on the Holy Spirit of God. Why? Because the act of speaking in tongues is an act of faith. In Acts 2:4 it says WE speak and the HOLY SPIRIT gives the utterance. We give the sound but the Holy Spirit gives the utterance or words. That can't happen without faith. We control the volume while God controls the words. To speak in tongues is impossible if it's real without a complete dependence on the Holy Spirit of God. Also when Paul said in 1 Cor. 14:5 that Prophecy is preferred unless the biblical tongues are interpreted. It was because God gives the utterance or words in both Prophecy and speaking in tongues. But with speaking in Tongues nobody understands the speaker without an interpretation. If there is an interpretation of the spoken tongues then Prophecy isn't preferred because you have already heard the direct words of God just like in the cases of Biblical prophecy. The word UNLESS is the key word in 1 Cor.14:5. Speaking in Tongues is an act of faith. It is God providing the words just like in the OT when the Spirit of God would come upon a Prophet or king. I know of no other way to say this other than the bible verse of Acts 2:4 We speak as the Holy Spirit gives the utterance.
  10. I'm not very surprised you haven't got many direct answers. I am very hesitant to post anything myself. I will try to explain why I'm so hesitant. The bible says man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. That means the living God is speaking right now and we should be able to hear and discern it. Jesus said " my sheep hear my voice and anothers voice they will not follow". Again we should hear and know God's voice and the difference between his voice and any other. To often people have what I like to call the Apostle Thomas mentality or the spirit of Thomas. Jesus appeared to all expect Thomas. Then when Thomas returned the other Apostles told him what had happened and he refused to believe them...Why? Because it had not happened to him. So they couldn't possibly be telling the truth. they had to be mistaken. Which is just a very nice way to call the other 10 Apostles Liars. Why? Because it had not happened to him. He continued not to believe the truth he had been told until it happened to him. Then it was real. But not unless it happened to him. That is the exact mentality most christians have on every subject possible. Speaking in tongues...can't be real, not possible., why? because it hasn't happened to them of course. Miracles and healings....Can't be real, why? because it hasn't happened to them of course. On and on I could go listing about every and any Biblical subject you could bring up. Because most people for all there talk of Loving God and other people are going to absolutely rip apart and destroy anyone who says anything has happened to them from God that They haven't experienced. They will destroy you with glee because it hasn't happened to them so you must be mistaken, a liar and everything false must fill you. However... To your question I guess... When I was young One night as I slept Jesus came to me and we went outside and sat under a tree. He only spoke a few things. Very little was said. He told me he loved me and that he would always be with me and just one other thing. Shortly after that experience I went through one of the most difficult of my life. Only after it was over and I was older did I learn that he spoke nothing but things in the bible to me that night. I tell you the truth. I had no idea until years later he only quoted the bible to me. I have dreams and visions all the time. In the book of Job ( around chapter 33 ) is one of my favorite verses. It goes like this, " The Lord speaks once, Yea twice yet man perceives him not. In a dream in a vision in the night when deep sleep falls upon man". Biblical dreams and visions are God talking to us. Jesus said the Holy Spirit would show us things to come. He didn't say might or maybe. He didn't say just a select few. He said when the Holy Spirit came upon all of them he would show them things to come. But God works by faith and most who claim to be his children just don't believe it's for them. There often isn't a day that goes by that I'm not getting a revelation about a dream or vision or bible verse. It always draws me to more prayer, more of the word of God and deeper understanding of my dependence on Jesus for everything. But there is always the other side of this. People have seemed to take glee causing as much pain and torment in my life as possible. I had a dream once When I was about 18 that they church I grew up in would be pulled off the road to heaven. I told the pastor who mocked me for believing in dreams. I told the other elders of the church who chastise me for being an alarmist because such things could not happen. Then they together one Sunday morning called me out in open church and laughed at me ( literally) and mocked me for what I saw and told everyone not to be a trouble making dreamer like me. I of course left that church. One year later the church split over doctrinal disputes and the few who mocked me were the only ones to stay together. I could go into much more detail but I just don't see any reason to. Jesus is alive. Do you really understand that? Jesus is alive! He is real and Alive and desires nothing more than to have a very real living relationship with each of us. One night I saw Jesus sitting in a chair in a room full of people. Everyone was discussing why so and so was allowed to happen or why hasn't Jesus done anything about this or that. As they debated it with one another I suddenly could hear Jesus thoughts. His thought that I was allowed to hear was. " Why are they discussing and debating with each other only and not coming and talking to me about it"? He was right there in the room. But nobody was talking to him about it, only each other. I hope you find your answer. May the love and peace of GOD fill you Firestormx
  11. While I guess that would be a concern... I'm just trying to learn more about GOD and draw closer to him. I view the bible in part as GOD's revealed will for us. I just thought that if GOD gave instruction for how a temple is to be maintained for his presence to dwell in it in the OT times, then that might have some application to us since GOD now will dwell within all who wholeheartedly seek him and depend on him for there salvation.
  12. Yes, I agree and I apologize. I must not have been clear enough in asking my question. Forgive me. Let me ask this way. If it was a daily duty of an OT priest to give an sin offering to GOD, then should we not daily confess any and all sins to our redeemer. If it was a daily duty of an OT priest to make sure the candles had enough oil so their light might shine, then shouldn't we daily pray in the Holy Spirit so that the light of GOD in us might shine? What were the daily duties of an OT priest in the temple of GOD that might have a spiritual application to us today?
  13. Don't know if I can find the right words to ask my question but here it is. Is there any correlation between the duties in the OT temple priest and a NT believer. A lot of things in the OT were a shadow of what was to come. Temple made of stone by the hands of men to be the dwelling place of GOD was a shadow of the temple made of Flesh and spirit made by God to be his dwelling place. OT oil to NT Holy Spirit. Sacrifice of sin offering of a lamb in the OT was a shadow of the sacrifice of the LAMB of GOD in the NT. The OT sacrifice of sin had to be done in the temple just like the NT sacrifice of Jesus must be applied or done in our bodies/ temple. There are so many things in the OT that were done that was a shadow of the NT. What were the daily duties of the temple priests? What was there daily routine? Is there any correlation between the duties in the OT temple priest and a NT believer. Firestormx
  14. Lol, well call me crazy but somehow I don't see fights leading to divorce over the cooking being that far fetched.
