  1. I know of one. We lived in Alaska when I was a kid. During one of the services, the spirit moved and my mother began speaking in tongues. Nothing out of the usual for my mom or the church. No interpretation was given during the service and the service moved on. After the service was over we were approached by these people. One of them began to speak to my mom in a language I didn't understand. My mom explained she didn't understand them or the language they were speaking. It turns out this family wanted to be in church. But there was an older woman with them that spoke no English and wasn't saved. She was a native Eskimo and that was the only language she spoke. They told my mom that when she stood up and spoke in the service that she had spoken in this Eskimo's native language perfectly, talking about Jesus and the salvation that is only in him. You can choose to believe this very true story or not but God can speak through any of his children who will submit and let him. Speaking in tongues is nothing more then the Holy Spirit Giving the utterance or words ( Acts 2:4 ). The source of the utterance or words is God, not the mind or experience or heart of the person speaking.
  2. Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. I write this to try to help you understand what happened and why. Notice the verse above. Pretty strange wording don't you think? They spoke, as the Holy Spirit gave utterance. They spoke, Holy Spirit gave utterance. What is the difference between speaking and utterance as written in this verse? Simple, They spoke or began to speak simply means they gave the sound. Utterance means words. They gave the sound, and the Holy Spirit gave the words. That means that the utterance given by the Holy spirit is divine Utterance because it comes from the Holy Spirit and not man. Think of it like this. Doesn't the bible say Prophecy is more desirable than tongues expect someone interrupt? Why? Because nobody would understand what is spoken without an interruption. But if there is an interruption, then tongues is equal to prophecy. How can tongues with an interruption be equal to prophecy if they both were not divine utterance? The simple answer is this. We open our mouths in faith, giving joyful noise unto the Lord from our heart. When we do this, in faith, sometimes the Holy Spirit will give the utterance or the words.
  3. Great post, top to bottom!
  4. I'm not talking verses but the post I quoted. But I should thank you for one thing. God used your posts to show me a couple days ago, that the entire works based salvation is all based on pride. The person's actions have to matter, they have to count. It's all about pride and ego. Everything about works based salvation is about Pride and ego. The insults and sarcasm in some of the posts above further prove this point, IMHO. I'm done. May you draw closer to Jesus and walk always with him.
  5. How is anything in this post fulfilling the verse to Love one another as Jesus has loved us? How is this insulting post fulfilling the verse that says Love is the fulfilling of the law? I reported this post for breaking the TOS.
  6. If we are saved then we have repented
  7. We are saved by Grace through faith, Period! We are not saved by works or any of our own effort. Jesus and his sacrifice save us, Faith in Jesus. But if you are saved, you can not and will not live any way you want to. You will not murder or rape or steal or live any lifestyle of sin. You will obey God and his word if you are saved, and saved by Grace through faith in Jesus alone. Think of it like this. We are fruit trees. Jesus is the gardener. God has a garden ( kingdom of God, Salvation ). There is nothing we can do to plant ourselves ( salvation ) in God's garden. The gardener ( Jesus ) must plant us in his Garden ( save us ). Now if we have been planted in God's Garden ( His kingdom, Salvation ), then there is no way we can do anything but produce good fruit ( works, obey ). I hope this helps.
  8. 2 Timothy 3:1-7 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
  9. If I am not mistaking the bible say Israel, not Jerusalem. Besides, they have already agreed to divide God's land when the state of Israel was reformed and they drew up the boundaries they did and everyone agreed.
  10. Israel is already divided. There are many nations living and claiming land that God says belongs to Israel.
  11. It's Star wars the Old republic. It's an online game
  12. I do like that scripture. Nice post! Agree completely. It starts with faith!
  13. I was hoping someone here could help me with the validity of the article I will post a link to below. The article is about the land God gave Abraham and Israel. It even has a picture showing the land that should and will eventually belong to Israel. Any other insights or additions anyone could add to this would be appreciated.
  14. Jedi are supposed to do and be guided by others first and not think of themselves first, just like Christians . Where as those on the dark side are motivated by selfish gain and self , just like most worldly people.
  15. Jedi covenant is the server I am on. I started on that server in early 2013 been there ever since. I tried to play on harbinger but just lost interest cause everyone I play with is on JC. Great to see another who plays.
