  1. I had posted this video awhile back and am glad it got re-posted. in addition to this video, the greeks were very devout. they lived what they believed, even though a good many of them believed in false gods they still lived it, so in reality if you could change the mind of a greek... you also changed how they lived. therefore, thru out the ages you can see how God spoke to the hebrews and greeks based on a way they would understand clearly. so all thru OT days God is saying turn ye and live return unto me, turn turn turn... and then here comes Jesus saying... I am The Way. In essence... this way guys... come this way. leading like a shepherd.
  2. yes very true. and i am glad you pointed this out because its also true that even here on this forum some promote repentance isnt needed because its... "all covered". and they even promote the teachers who promote the heresy a "genuine christian" would not stand for. some of which will and have thumbs upped and worthy-ied your words here and elsewhere. false teaching is rampant and it needs to be addressed. its way more common than many realize and its creeping into western churches. even those that are well known to teach "sound doctrine"
  3. Mat 24:48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; Mat 24:49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; Mat 24:50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, Mat 24:51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

  4. Rev 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. Rev 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. Rev 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. Rev 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. Rev 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. Rev 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. Rev 19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; Rev 19:18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
  5. tell me, where-bouts is the guarantee found in this passage: Mat 6:15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. sounds like a deal breaker to me. unless of course you choose to believe God is in the habit of not doing what He says. Which would make Him a liar. So by promoting that thing about guarantees, arent you kinda sorta doing that? mmm. I guess God also lied when He said he would not acquit the wicked. Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. Rev 18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Rev 18:6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. Rev 18:7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Rev 18:8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. wow. sounds like obedience is more important than many jack legged preachers proclaim. food for thought.
  6. I see where you are going with that, but it does not change my mind on the whole books thing. I do understand what you mean tho, about how God can speak to us from any angle, and that He does. even from the most unsuspecting places we would think He will. a regular book = dead letter. The Book = Living Word. words that stick with you... from now on, words that pop up from your heart into your brain as needed... because the words are alive inside you. regular books... not so much. any question you need answered... the answer in in The Book. any information/knowledge/wisdom... its in The Book too. the formula is ask, seek, and knock. Who do you ask?... Whom do you seek from? Whose door do you knock on? there are so many books out there now and a good many of them are written by those not called to be teachers. i do not care to wade thru the muck to find out which is which. I am going to stick to the only Book I know contains zero lies/half truths/whatever you want to call it. I prefer The Book thats authored by The Holy Ghost. if you want to read dead letter to learn some information, do not let me stop you. edit: these days writing books is kinda like a fad or a rite of passage to ... whatever it is. i do not know what to call it. all the teachers i know who are called teach from the bible.
  7. Have you seriously prayed about your calling?
  8. for me, nothing compares to God giving to you personally instruction, correction, etc. no man can take the place or satisfy your soul like hearing from Him. No man speaks such perfection or with the same accuracy. No mans helpfulness can take the place of being led of The Spirit. even Those that were more noble than those in Thessalonica tested the apostle Pauls words by scripture. what i have found to be true is people need to spend less time reading books and spend tim in The Word with God. Hearing from Him.
  9. there sure are a lot of books out there. so many books being written today. If you have read enough of my posts you have probably read me referring to the bible as "The Book. " the connotation is that there is no other book. its the only book. we do not need any other books. we do not need some persons explanation on the bible or stuff and things or a compilation of their "thoughts and opinions" Whats needed is a relationship with God, one where you are close enough to hear from Him and Him to speak from His Written Word, aka, The Book. if people invested the time to have and to do this we would have much less need of books.
  10. Sinning willfully is sinning unrestrained. its getting to the place where you are no longer convicted or have Godly sorrow for sin. any sin can lead you to this point if left unchecked. its hardening your heart... as they did in the provocation... per the NT. one can refuse the gift of eternal life by allowing sin to reign. plainly, sin kills. the real problem comes trying to explain what real spiritual obedience is to someone who is not awake or "tuned in" to the Holy Spirit. they heard some jack legged preacher proclaiming a perverted version of the gospel and they ate it up. (refer to the OP to see what i am talking about)
  11. wrong. you ignore scripture when its convenient for you to continue in false teaching. scripture has been provided and you reject God breathed scripture.
  12. Mat 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 2Th 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2Th 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Its really sad how prevalent and how readily accepted false teachings are, these days. not to mention, ignoring of scripture that blatantly and plainly puts to shame the heresy presented. this is just sad.
  13. there are LOTS of clues in scripture for what maturity in Christ Jesus is. one example is someone being on a diet of milk or meat. search the scriptures carefully!!!
