    Favorite Christian songs!!

    It was lovely to find this entry from you this morning, turtletwo, thank you so much. I am beginning to see what this club can achieve, and the way to respond. I am so used to taking part in the discussions, where everything is factual and needs to be delivered succinctly because of the limits of space and concentration, that it takes a bit of adjustment to actually express how you feel about something. Isaac Watts wrote 'Amazing Grace' I believe, so yes, a lovely child of God. Yes, I agree with your cycle, whatever we give to Him, has already been given to us by Him (Praise His Name!). To be the pen of 'a ready writer' (Psa.45:1) is close to my heart too. I express myself far better with a pen than I do with my lips, for I am shy by nature, and tend to stammer and stutter in shear embarrassment when having to express something unpreparedly. Praise God! That He will bless you and keep you. How sure are His promises! May He be truly blessed by us. In Christ Jesus Chris

    Life in Christ

    Thank you, @turtletwo I did write the intro. but thank you for supplying these wonderful verses. You have done what the hymn writer desired, you have meditated upon the Word of God and in sharing it, enriched our experience. * I love your 'life verse'. With love in Christ Jesus Chris
  3. This following hymn, again without author, I have found, and before your eyes now place, may it be received and be a blessing, to all who have received God's wondrous grace. ----------------------- * It is based on 2 Timothy 1:10:- ‘But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:’ (2 Tim. 1:10) Life in Christ, O promise glorious! Death abolished evermore: We shall hear His shout victorious, All our dead He will restore. Saved and called with holy calling, Not by works which we have done: By His grace we’re kept from falling, He the victory has won. On His Word by faith relying, By the Spirit we are sealed; Precious promise satisfying, Life in Christ to us revealed. God His purpose now hath taught us, Planned ere ages had begun; Grace has saved us, love has bought us, Made us one in His dear Son. Praise His Holy Name!

    New Age Anointing-Bill Johnson

    Hello @Davida, I have done as you asked, and watched the video. I now understand why you feel that Christians need to be informed about this, and warned of the dangers of becoming embroiled in such a movement. I was warned about such a movement locally, and was horrified when I sought information about this online. Their words and actions are their own judge and jury. This is deception of the worst kind. In Christ Jesus Chris

    Hello @Davida, Forgive me, I have not read the thread through, simply responded to Willie T. I do not have any knowledge of Johnson & his wife, or of the Bethel Church. Thank you for your correction. In Christ Jesus Chris

    New Age Anointing-Bill Johnson

    Hello @Willie T, It is inevitable when differences in doctrinal belief is voiced that labeling will take place: and it is not a bad thing in some ways for it helps to understand where those voicing them are coming from, but when that label results in scornful remarks and distain, in ostracism, unkindness and lack of love, then it grieves the Holy Spirit, and dishonours the one who has told us to love one another. We must stand upon the truth that we believe, yes, but respectfully, and with love: showing by prayerful reference to the Scriptures why we believe what we do, with patience. Not with mockery and scorn. In Christ Jesus Chris

    New Age Anointing-Bill Johnson

    Hello @Willie T, My sister lost a daughter aged 32 to cancer, and she tells me that even though she knows that her daughter cannot hear her, she still talks to her, for it gives her comfort. God knows my sisters heart, he knows that she is in no illusion as to the true state of the dead, that it is in resurrection that she will see her, when mortality will have put on immortality, and corruption put on incorruption. He does not judge that grieving heart and so who are we to do so. In Christ Jesus Chris
  8. * This is a hymn I found based on Ephesians 4:3, I do not know the author of it, but it perfectly expresses my hope in Christ. ‘Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.’ (Eph 4:3) Seated above all heavens, We see our glorious Head, A bond of peace He’s given, We’re by the Spirit led. Up from the grave He’s risen, Sat down in majesty, And to the hosts of Satan Declared His victory. We have been made One Body, One Hope, One Faith, have we: One Baptism, One Spirit, Who forms our Unity. One Lord, the glorious Centre; One Head, for great or small; One God, Who is the Father, Above, through, over all. We wait for resurrection, When Christ our Lord shall come; Transfigured in His likeness, Made meet for our bright home; Shall be called up in glory, In unity complete; Made righteous, clean and spotless, With Him to take our seat. Praise His Holy Name!

    Thank you Willa. Like turtletwo, it has been a blessing. In Christ Jesus Chris
  10. 'But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. (Gen 6:8) Praise God!
  11. ‘And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; .. both man, .... and beast, ...... and the creeping thing, ........ and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.’ (Gen 6:7) Praise His Holy Name!

    Genesis 6:3

    Hello @Willa, Thank you for your input. I do not believe that there is any discrepancy in Genesis 6:3, the only discrepancy is perhaps in our understanding of it. As for Adam, in chapter 5:1 we read:- ‘This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made He him; Male and female created He them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created. And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth: And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters: And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.’ (Gen 5:1) * Perhaps Adam would live 120 years from the point at which the words of God were spoken in Genesis 6:3, I do not know, and it does not matter that I don't know, for God knows. ‘And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.’ (Gen 6:3) May His Name Be Praised! Within the love of Christ our Saviour, In Christ Jesus Chris

    Genesis 6:3

    Hello @Michael37 In verses 1 & 2 the article determines that it is 'the man Adam' that is meant, as the first human, as in verse two and three. To make the sweeping assumption that it is the same in every following use of the word 'man' or 'men' would be wrong, but if the article is there in the original then it is 'the man Adam' that is meant. Thank you In Christ Jesus Chris

    The timing of the 6th seal

    ‘And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to His throne.’ (Rev 12:5) Hello @Larry 2, The word translated, 'male', is Gr. arsen, and is of the neuter gender, which is appropriate here, for it is He of Whom it is specially prophesied that He should rule the nations with a rod of iron (Psa 2:9) ‘Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.’ ----------------- ‘And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:’ (Rev 12:1) * The woman of Rev.12:1, takes us back to Genesis 37, for it is the only Scripture that has anything corresponding to it. There we read of Joseph (v.9) 'he dreamed yet another dream, and told it to his brethren, and said, Behold! I have dreamed a dream more; behold, the sun, and the moon, and the eleven stars made obeisance to me. And he told it to his father, and to his brethren; and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, what is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I, and thy mother, and thy brethen indeed come to bow ourselved to thee, to the earth' (Gen. 37:9,10. Joseph therefore saw a similar 'sign,' and both he and his father Jacob understood it at once, and interpreted it correctly, as the sequel shows. *These twelve stars, therefore, were the Zodiacal signs which are associated with Israel in the persons of Jacob, and the twelve Patriarchs. These constituted and represented the whole nation in embryo. * Israel, is again and again compared to a woman, and a married woman, in the Old Testament (Isaiah 54 etc.,). The Church is never so depicted. Praise God! In Christ Jesus Chris
