  1. Unpardonable sin

    Think about this. What is the Holy Spirit's job? His job is to show us to all truth, 1 John 2:27-29. Today it's hard to find out what the truth is with "this" expert against "that" expert, but the Holy Spirit is there to help us. Also part of His job is to teach us about sin and getting us to repent. When we reject His teaching, just as Saul did "kick against the pricks," we have a choice. The unpardonable sin is the ultimate where a person rejects His truth about Jesus. That's the unpardonable sin, calling the Holy Spirit a liar and rejecting His call to salvation. A Christian, while they can frustrate the grace of God, has accepted the truth about Jesus through the work of the Holy Spirit. My wife didn't want to marry me because she too thought she had committed the unforgivable sin. But you have to read the whole chapter to understand that it was the religious phony baloney that was the sin. They said the power that Jesus did His miracles was of the devil. They didn't believe the truth and called it a lie. They, knowing the truth, would not enter into the kingdom, which is bad enough, but they kept others away too. And it's this public confession against the work of the Holy Spirit that's unforgivable. The lost are the ones judged by their own words. If you've ever tried to talk to someone about the Lord and they dismiss you right off saying, "I don't believe in that !#$#$", Jesus says: Matthew 12:37 (KJV) For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. Once my wife understood she couldn't sin against the Holy Spirit, she became a great prophetess and intercessor. Don't let the devil lie to you. Pray and learn from the Holy Spirit and the truth shall set you free. "Shall" is a command, a promise.
  2. Rapture thoughts

    Did you know that the new agers believe that the aliens will come and remove those that are negative and bring utopia to the earth? I believe the governments of the earth, if enough are noticeably missing, will concoct a story about alien abduction and fabricate all kinds of stuff to push away anything about Jesus. I've had this on my wall for over 40 years: Notice the Mrs. isn't saved in the cemetery, nor the guy hit by the white car or the truck driver. Obviously the pilot and co-pilot were saved and some passengers. If indeed there are enough of us, chaos will ensue.
  3. FAITH

    AMEN! Faith: Pistis in Greek and means conviction of the truth of anything, a belief. And it comes from the word Peitho meaning to be persuaded, to be persuaded of a thing concerning a person, to listen to, obey, yield to, comply with, to trust, have confidence, be confident. Intuition is that message from your heart that you'll get through this with certainty by God's help. The very fabric of our being, in every cell, we are connected to God by the breath He blew into Adam! And the "glue" that holds all the atoms in the universe together is Jesus, Col 1:17! Substance: - Original: ὑπόστασις - Transliteration: Hupostasis - Phonetic: hoop-os'-tas-is - Definition: 1. a setting or placing under a. thing put under, substructure, foundation 2. that which has foundation, is firm a. that which has actual existence 1. a substance, real being b. the substantial quality, nature, of a person or thing c. the steadfastness of mind, firmness, courage, resolution 1. confidence, firm trust, assurance Faith is going to take these invisible things and make them manifest in the physical. Faith is the substructure for these invisible things to become visible. Faith is going to become the absolute proof that the invisible things are going to become visible. For instance, when you want to buy property from someone, you can't just walk in and take it over. You have to have the right to do that. So you go through the process and at the courthouse you get the title deed to the property. Now, you have the right to go in and do as you please. This title deed is this Greek word for substance. Faith starts out as an intuition that something will happen to make this event turn out better. Once faith becomes real, you get the proof of ownership. As soon as faith becomes alive in you, there's no doubt what the outcome will be. Your faith cannot make it work from someone else. We must use our own faith. Your faith can be a catalyst for their faith, but even Jesus repeatedly said "Your faith has made you whole." Things: - Original: πρᾶγμα - Transliteration: Pragma - Phonetic: prag'-mah - Definition: 1. that which has been done, a deed, an accomplished fact 2. what is done or being accomplished a. spec. business, a commercial transaction 3. a matter, question, affair a. spec. in a forensic sense, a matter at law, case, suit 4. that which is or exists, a thing Faith is the proof of ownership for that which has been done of an accomplished fact. Faith is NOT about the future. Faith is about an accomplished fact. What God has already declared isn't going to happen automatically (His will is that none perish - but people still go to hell.) What is lawful in heaven must be declared so on earth. What is unlawful in heaven must be declared so on earth. Miracles are not for the deserving. Miracles are for the believing. Evidence: - Original: ἔλεγχος - Transliteration: Elegchos - Phonetic: el'-eng-khos - Definition: 1. a proof, that by which a thing is proved or tested 2. conviction Whatever evidence you find the most of on any subject, you'll believe that evidence. Now, we are VERY good and astute at gather evidence in the physical world. But we are not proficient enough to gather evidence of the invisible world. If Paul were here today and listed all the tragedies of his life, we would quickly judge him as having sin in his life because of the evil that keep befalling him. But Paul said that he doesn't look at the physical things, but the unseen things, 2 Cor 4:16-18. Do NOT look at the bad physical evidence. Seek out God's unseen promises, believe them and declare them as they are so. Will we see sickness or poverty? Yes, sure, but we do not have to live in it. According to the accomplished promises of God, we can declare them unlawful and pass through them, allowing the unseen to become seen. Never declare the physical evidence, only the unseen evidence of health and flourishing and thriving. With all this said: Faith is the being absolute, sure, fully persuaded, immovable, about these things that have already been accomplished that you are confidently expecting! Matthew 21:22 (KJV) And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
  4. Think about it. Let's say you poured your heart into a project, sacrificing everything for it. You give it to your intended, and they shrug their shoulders and say, "Meh" and chooses someone else's work? That hurt is jealous anger. Lusting after the new Ferrari in your neighbor's drive way is another jealousy, the wrong kind. God's name is Jealous because He gave us His all, 100%. Exodus 34:14 (KJV) For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: Jealous in Hebrew is קנא (qana) and each letter in Hebrew has its own meaning. In this example, ק means behind, נ means seed, and א means sacrifice. Righteous jealousy is having someone turn their back to the fruit of your sacrifice.
  5. Thanks. Everything we say and do has a ripple... that's why I chose it.
  6. Will everybody be saved?

    Well, the good new is that the Judge turned into our Lawyer and went to prison for us. The choice to believe that and have faith in God is the issue. You can take a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. Humans are no different. The good news is you can be set free, but you have to repent (meaning to change your mind about God) and believe in your heart. A simple choice. Joel 2:32a (KJV) And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered... Romans 10:13 (KJV) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
  7. I want to be a ponderer and hope I am
  8. Mental Illness

    As to who is doing what to whom, read Deuteronomy 28. While we repent and live according to God's way, we're under His protection, Psa 91. Sin and lack of faith allow the devil to attack us because we're outside God's protection. If you see a speed limit of 25 mph and you do 50 mph on a curve and wreck your care and lose a leg in the accident, whose fault it is? So when we sin and suffer for it, whose fault is it? As I stated in another thread, everything in the word of God is about Jesus and the legal battle. Adam was given all authority of the physical, when he sinned, it defaulted to the devil, the prince of the power of the air. But the Word of God, Jesus, came in the flesh as a man and lived a life that Adam should have, died for us and set us free from sin. But too many can't cease from sin because their flesh rules them instead of surrendering to God. We suffer for our sins and the sins of others. This is all about choice. If the guy decides there's nothing wrong with a valve and doesn't check it, all those living near the 3-mile island suffered for it. Because Jimmie Carter didn't veto the U.N. resolution against Israel on March 22, 1979, four days later the 3-mile island incident occurs. These are all cause and effects.
  9. Mental Illness

    Thoughts are seeds. Have a sinful thought and allow them to grow in the garden of your mind, and you'll sin. God says: 2 Corinthians 10:4-6 (KJV) (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. Philippians 4:8 (KJV) Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Even Paul explains this very nicely in Romans 7 - yes, read the whole thing. And concludes with: Romans 7:24-25 (KJV) O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin. Possession implies ownership, yet many think they're children of God but they are not thanks to the "1,2,3 pray after me" fire insurance. Words mean nothing without deep conviction. A lot of "christians" are going to hell and are indeed possessed by the devil because they really are not Christians. Our flesh is still filled with sin and is corrupted and we have to deal with it. Jesus gave us tons of clues we don't believe in how to be free of the influences of the spirit of infirmities or because of sin. In a nutshell, it is one's own faith as to whether they are healed or not. By proxy, the faith of those that anoint and pray over you, James 5:14-15. Sin and demonic influences are involved in the corruption of the flesh. Here are some examples of how to get free: Matthew 8:13 (KJV) And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour. Matthew 9:2 (KJV) And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee. Matthew 9:22 (KJV) But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. Matthew 9:28-29 (KJV) And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord. Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. Matthew 14:31 (KJV) And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? Matthew 15:28 (KJV) Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour. Matthew 17:19-20 (KJV) Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Matthew 21:21-22 (KJV) Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. And this is just the book of Matthew! There is certainly a cause and effect here.
  10. Five points of the Arminian heresy.

    The devil loves putting things as black and white and stuffing it into a controllable box. That way you don't have to think about God, or what He wants, if He's telling you to be responsible for your actions. Also, with such rigidity instead of learning to love and trust God, you start to despise His "unyielding law" and hating Him. When someone wants to slap a label on something, rip it off. If they want to stick you into a box, break out of it. With every heresy there's a grain of truth. Some quick proofs: "Meditation is Hindu guru junk" Yet, God says to meditate on His word day and night, Joshua 1:8. "Money is the root of all evil" Money isn't the problem, the love of money is the root of all evil, 1 Tim 6:10. Deu 28 shows we have free will. When someone throws in the definition "without external influences" they're lying to themselves. We're influenced by things we don't even know exist. Just because we can't feel or sense x-rays doesn't mean they don't have an effect on us. Everyday we're bombarded by cell phone signals and WiFi yet we can't sense it physically, but is it doing us harm? Only God knows for now. I was reading about some football player that had died and when they did an autopsy of his brain they saw it filled with dead cells that had died long before he did. They now believe that his violent actions off the field might have been because of his unknown condition. By everyone's account, he was an evil dude, but internally, he was influenced by not having a healthy brain. The point is, these labeling exercises only help put people back into a box or allow for the dismissal of a truth because it's lumped in with other junk. Paul say he doesn't judge his own self because he knows he doesn't have all the facts about what influences him. 1 Corinthians 4:3-5 (KJV) But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self. For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord. Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God. Yet, every single day, if not every single moment, we judge one another and ourselves. To say "I'm right" is judging yourself. Stick to the word of God, all of it, not "man-ology" as @Justin Adams so rightly stated, otherwise, we fall under the spell of silver-tongued devils.
  11. EMET (Truth) = 9

    P.S. use the quote at the bottom left... I almost missed your reply because it didn't notify me...
  12. EMET (Truth) = 9

    The law of 9's is that any multiplied by 9 will yield a value that sums to 9. This law applies to binary as well and why computers are so fast at math. But what does 9 have to do with Jesus? This quotation seems a bit out of place in your statement. I was fine with אמת being 441. So, if I understand you, you took 441 and just added them together to become 9. I guess that's a level of gematria I've not ventured into. Turning them into primes numbers or into factors like 441 into 3 x 3 x 7 x 7 is cool and yields a lot of patterns. Have you ever done Genesis 1:1? It contains Pi (3.1415) Pi = (NL x PL) / (NW x PW) where NL = number of letters, and NW = number of words PL = product of letters, and PW = product of words PL = 48 x 4 x 6 x 4 x 24 x 24 x 9 x 1027 = 2.3887872 x 1034 PW = 913 x 203 x 86 x 401 x 395 x 407 x 296 = 3.041535258 x 1017 Since the number of letters is 28, and the number of words 7, we are now able to apply the formula, thus: Pi = (28 x 2.3887872 x 1034) / (7 x 3.041535258 x 1017) = 3.14155 x 1017, i.e. a good approximation of Pi (= 3.14159...) appears. John 1:1 does the same thing for e Calculation = 2.71831 x 1040 , i.e. the number e (= 2.7182818...) correct to 5 digits! The number e is a famous irrational number, and is one of the most important numbers in mathematics. So in the word of God we have 2 of the most important numbers in the universe. Genesis 1:1 also proves 666 isn't evil. But that should go into another thread.
  13. question about God

    He requires absolute perfection. But, at the same time, He knows we're sinners - not because sin - but because we're born that way. We're already defective at birth. So, God sent His only begotten Son to come and live a life of absolute perfection. By His perfection, we're no longer defective in the Spirit. The body is still filled with sin, but our dead spirit is now alive in Him. When He comes to the earth physically again, we'll all be given perfect bodies free of sin. When Jesus died, His perfection was given to us and our imperfection was given to Him. In other words, our Judge became our Lawyer, and then went to prison for us. Our prison door is open, just waiting for us to step out.
  14. Noahs Ark

    Now if I could only get the information on where my other sock goes in the dryer!
  15. Noahs Ark

    No mistake. Just a simple lack of information.
