  1. Matthew 25:46 "Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."
  2. The Holy Spirit, aka the Spirit of Truth, is only concerned about the Truth. To answer your question: the truth of its contents. Be careful what you ask for. If you ask for who, when, whom, and why it was written, and not ask for the truth of its contents, then you are seeking not its truth but personal glorification. "Look what I know". You may even get what you ask for, just to find out that nobody will take you seriously, or label you as a false-prophet, just so you may discover a truth about your motives. God seems to move in mysterious ways for those that ignore the truth of themselves.
  3. @Michelleblue. Accept accept accept. The sooner you accept it now the easier it gets later on. After 50, bits start falling off, such as hair and teeth; let alone what gravity does to our skin. Most people of similar age group have to accept themselves too. If you don't, then those others may not accept your vanity, since they are letting go of their own.
  4. I suppose it does not matter which day of the week, but at least one day of the week is spent on worship. Personally, I worship God daily, which does not mean I necessarily go to church to worship.
  5. Nice to know you are going to exemplify Paul in this case. Keep us posted on your progress.
  6. The word 'specific' is your word. Verses were not asked for, which is what you wanted to see. Please 'see' and read 'hear' Matthew 13:9-16. Christ Jesus knew that our eyes and ears are honest, but our mind on self-righteousness is dishonest.
  7. John 16:12- "I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. 15. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you." BeauJangles, you are already familiar with these verses, yet you let yourself get in the way of truth. This is what I meant by you seeing what you want to see. And in regards to you using what Melinda12 said: I did.
  8. God is Truth. Truth restores and heals to its original authentic true state or nature. Restores disharmony to harmony; dishonesty to honesty; stress to rest; doubt to obvious; conditionality to unconditionality, and anything else untrue to true.
  9. The bible does not cover everything true. Just because something is not mentioned in the bible does not mean it is not true. Let the Spirit of Truth guide you in your honest surrender of what you doubt.
  10. All we can do is surrender honestly to the Holy Spirit of Truth, every minute. If we do anything else, even if we think we are doing it for Christ, we do it dishonestly.
  11. Tension comes from fear. Rest comes from faith in God. this is not an assumption, but the truth.
  12. Faith fails when it is conditional. Guarding ones own faith is fear of not getting what you want from Truth/God. That is trying to get (touch) something for your self identity. It is not about accepting anything or nothing from God/Truth. Only absolute surrender of a life of self will one find a life of Truth.
  13. The word 'ego' is used by psychiatrists, but it simply means "I" or 'self'. Matthew 16:24-25 Then Jesus said to his disciples, "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it..." This does not refer to bodily death, but foregoing their self-fabricated identity/life (ego-self), for the life of our innermost being of Truth, or soul. Relax, and surrender to the Holy Spirit of Truth to guide you as to what is true or not. Don't let fear, reasoning, or logic rule over your faith in God/Truth. Take what you know is true and leave the rest. Whatever is true will remain with the Truth within you, and when you are ready, the Spirit of Truth will merge with your consciousness and you will become again filled with Truths illumination. Keep your lamp filled with oil (truth) to light your way through the world of darkness (dishonesty). May God bless you.
