  1. And Jesus breathed on them and said receive ye the Holy Ghost.
  2. I agree we should seek peace will all that we can have peace with, and i have even seen how a soft answer did turn away wrath, but some knuckle heads just dont want peace. (i used to be one of them knuckleheads btw and it was the first thing God took from me, as far as I know)
  3. you might want to look up the word life in this passage. (psuchē, it means spirit, and Jesus gave up the ghost) what your speaking on has nothing to do with being martyred, but rather answering Gods call. its more akin to giving up you house /life and getting rewards. and thats good that you answered the call, but the purpose of this thread says does counted worthy to escape prove pre-trib? the bible tells us many will be martyred, and quite a good many will be beheaded for the faith, according to the bible and many will have tribulation, it says. death is apart of life and staying faithful unto death IS the greatest sacrifice one can do. so i think i understand just fine.
  4. you noticed that too? go back and see where he quoted me from, all about The Spirit working was left out. I like how you worded that.
  5. atheist teachings are definitely fairy tales/myths/fables. if a christian is won over by atheist dialogue they are not very faithful. in order to be faithful one must be faith-ful. fleeing actually requires strength. its easy to just go with the flow. which is how the world system is set up. and one of the arguments used to try to ridicule those of the faith for having faith. you can also find fables here... 1Ti 4:7 But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness. and in the same chapter it says this... 1Ti 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; weren't you just mentioning departing from the faith?
  6. i only have a little over 3600 posts. i actually know the verse. i was trying to get you to think so you could gain understanding.
  7. The answer is Jesus Crucified and risen. The bible also tells us... 1Ti 1:4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do. I have realized a good many of my convos have been unfruitful. people are not won over by these discussions whether it be osas/not-osas or athiest vs Christian faith. debating on their point of view will always remain fruitless. if The Holy Spirit is not drawing them, and using you, basically its a waste of time. you may still try and plant some seeds in hopes one day they do sprout and grow and produce, but the only thing we really need to respond with isnt from their belief system, which is false, but with Words that are Spirit and Life. and that is our salty seasoned speech.
  8. well, that explains why you dont understand what i said earlier.
  9. Paul considered it a privilege to suffer for the name of Jesus. I think Paul, a man who God used to write a fair amount of the NT, would be someone we could look to as an example, someone to emulate. The letters to the churches when it speaks of crowns ... those had not earned the crowns as of yet.
  10. what was it Jesus said about no greater love? something about laying down His life for His friends? I just cant place the verse verbatim, can you help me out?
  11. The Book says the death of His saints is precious in His sight. When we become a martyr that is the ultimate sacrifice we can do as being a living sacrifice. Mat 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. Mat 16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
  12. did you know wd-40 used to be a government formula? it stands for water displacement and it was the 40th formula. there is wd-38 and a bunch of other numbers. idk if you can still buy the other wd's. they used it on the nukes in the silos to keep them from rusting. they sold the recipe and its been available to the public every since. brake cleaner spray will evaporate and de-grease... dont know if thats a great idea with kitchen bowls or not. certain things in the kitchen are off limits to me... just saying.
  13. AWESOME!!! this verse and a few others from this psalm was done up with a melody at church the other day and I couldnt remember which psalm it was and i couldnt remember the exact wording to google it on up. thanks for posting this Not Me!!!
  14. that would have been bad if her stovetop dinner caught on fire and no one heard her. real bad.
