  1. Am I Saved

    Being born of water and the spirit is a reference to both baptism and being born again. Baptism is a very important spiritual weapon for our walk in this life after we are born again......it is a sealing of our faith, so to speak. The biblical principle is first the natural then the spiritual.......being baptized is a kind of prophetic act in the natural realm of our old man being buried and being resurrected to new life. If you don't have peace about your situation and have a desire to be baptized again then by all means I would encourage you to do so sister, it sounds like the Holy Spirit could be putting that on your heart. Don't wait, just go and get it done as soon it can be arranged, in simplicity....doesn't have to be a formal public event.
  2. Intelligence is one thing, and man can get up to all sorts of evil with it..........but wisdom comes only from God and is pure.
  3. It's becoming disturbing all the things that man is getting up to with things like this, and including artificial intelligence and human/computer neurological interface/hybrids, virtual reality etc........all because of Godlessness ultimately, and having no trust in Him. It's all getting to be too much, and the one thing that I find comforting when I hear about these types of endeavours, is knowing that the return of our Lord will cut it all short........mankind will not get to live out their efforts to usurp His place for much longer.
  4. Just Ask!

    There seems to be a number of factors when it comes to prayer.....for example there is an aspect that prayer often requires perseverence, it isn't always a case of receiving an instant answer. I sometimes think of it like cranking the engine of one of those old cars.......it sometimes takes a while before the engine starts to turn over and we start seeing the answers. There is also the aspect that while Jesus had the Spirit without measure........as individual members we all receive a measure of faith and not all have gifts of healing, or evangelism, or miracles...etc. There is also an aspect of spiritual warfare as well where answers can be delayed. Just some things that came to mind with regard to prayer.
  5. Worry?

    Bless you Berean......I've found it helpful in times of worry or discouragement to remind myself of how the Lord has been faithful to me at different times in the past........as well as to cast my cares upon Him.......so I would say to unburden yourself to the Lord in prayer over this situation, as many times as you need to, and He will give you His peace, as well as make a way for you.
  6. Whose Struggle?

    Amen to your take on this.......speaking in the spirit, it also speaks to those who were not under the law, but in Romans 7 and 8 in general is for sure in context of addressing the law question......it is absolutely showing the difference between following laws and following the Spirit, and meshes perfectly with Galations. Law gives strength to sin, whereas in following and obeying the Spirit, we are delivered from sin and it doesn't have dominion over us......as opposed to when we try to obey laws, sin revives and we come under its bondage. Paul was all the time trying to help the early Jewish believers resolve this question of what their relationship to the law was supposed to now be....it was apparently not easy for them to grasp and accept that they no longer were under the law and obligated to it, once they had come to faith in Christ and entered into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
  7. Jesus Is God

    Amen.......He exists in eternity, not bound by time.....and so He was able to appear many times in His body in the past...."His goings forth have been from of old".....even though His body was prepared, begotten, for Him at a point in time from earth's perspective. He is one and the same....Father, Son and Holy Spirit.......as we see from this verse: Isa 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
  8. Jesus Is God

    Not at all......Jesus IS God.....I was just trying to discuss more about His sonship, and ours.......one thought led to another, as sometimes happens.
  9. Jesus Is God

    Who can really understand these things........Jesus is the Word made flesh...and the apostles beheld His glory. He is the only begotten of the Father, but still somehow the Lord is one. We just need to believe it and not try to slice it and dice it too finely; don't go beyond what is written or we will miss the mark.
  10. Jesus Is God

    Amen.......He is God, we are not......and even though all things have been put under Christ's feet, we mostly do not yet see it, though potentially it could be for some. Getting a bit philosophical with this, but see whether it agrees with the word.......each one seems to have different battles to fight, some more difficult, some less so, etc, and the offering is accepted not based on what a person doesn't have, but on what they do have.....the Lord judging righteous judgment, not by what appears outwardly. I have a hunch that we will be surprised on judgment day how the Lord judges...not the way that 'we' tend to think, but based on what only He knows about a person's life and walk....the last will be first and the first will be last, the least honourable receiving more honour, etc.....He just seems to be the opposite of how we would think. The important thing I believe, is to be in the battle that happens to be appointed to us; to be growing; to be on the narrow path of not my will, but Thine be done, and following Jesus obediently as He leads/directs our walk. It's humbling in itself to realize that we don't even have any control over the measure we first receive, just so long as what measure of faith we were given, little or great, 1 talent or 10, we are 'investing' it for His glory. It's amazing to me, about the Philadelphia church, the Lord says of it "you have little strength...yet you have not denied my name"....that is one of only two of the churches that the Lord seemed to have found no major fault with....what seemed to have pleased the Lord about that church was simply that they had kept the word of His patience, to endure. Who can really fathom Him....so amen walk humbly with our God, humble ourselves under His mighty hand, and what else can we do really. He is the Husbandman, the Vinedresser, and we are just vessels for His fruit to grow as He cultivates it and prunes away as He pleases. Our part seems to be a matter of just not shying away from those pruning shears, just stay still and know that He is God, and determine as Job did, that though He slay me yet will I trust Him.
  11. Jesus Is God

    Amen! Christ is the ONLY begotten of the Father, and we rest are adopted sons. In the bible, sons of God and gods are referring to angels/ministering spirits........and how it is applied to us is as Jesus said, we shall be like the angels.....so in that sense we will be gods/sons of God.....and yes, judging and ruling and reigning with Christ in the world to come. But in case any are of the mistaken impression that believers will be Christs or Gods, I pray they will just let this wash over them: Isaiah 43:10-11 Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. Isaiah 40:25 To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. Isa 46:5 To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?
  12. Jesus Is God

    Jesus is the only begotten of the Father. Whereas we receive the Spirit of adoption when we are born of the Spirit. "Sons of hell" and being "of their father the devil" denoted what spirit they were of in quite a literal way. Likewise when a person is born of the HOLY Spirit, it denotes what spirit we are of in a literal way. It denotes who/what spirit is ruling in our vessel/temple. But flesh/carnal nature is contrary to the Spirit.....and even though Christ is ruling in us, and all things put under His feet, we do not yet SEE everything put under His feet....so we have the good fight of faith to battle out and being perfected through sufferings like the captain of our faith. Death and fear of it is the last enemy to be defeated when love is perfected.
  13. Jesus Is God

    Amen brother..........a humble and contrite heart He will not despise.......but He is against the proud, so we always need to walk humbly and with a penitent heart. In this way, be rightly related to Him through Christ........because HE alone is God and we are not.
  14. Jesus Is God

    AMEN......Jesus is the only one who is/was without sin. So repentance is a huge necessity for us, it's a key to the kingdom.....so sad that it is often seen as a taboo topic in Christendom now. As though some are starting to think they are Christs....?
  15. Jesus Is God

    Amen! Just that while on earth He did not count Himself equal to God, but in submission to Him, and in dependence upon Him......being an example for us. He didn't come out and explicitly say that "I am God" because that would have been unseemly while He was in the flesh....so He also set the right example for us that way as well..... .....because Jesus warned that in the last days many would come in His name SAYING they are Christ/God. They take where it says, " it is no longer I who live but Christ who lives in me", too far.....overshooting the mark. Forgetting that even Christ in us, is in submission to the Father, not counting Himself equal to God. It is not ever the case that we "ARE Christ", rather it is that we have this treasure (of Him) IN our earthen vessel, and that we are to be LIKE Him....not BE him, but be LIKE Him. Many will be saying about a man and men, lo here is Christ, or there......like the son of perdition is going to sit in the temple of God showing himself that he is God.......this is all from mystery Babylon, new age, Hindu, Buddhist beliefs creeping into the church. I have already heard a number of Christians saying that they are Christ, that they are God............AND happened to observe not long ago, a young man who was not Indian but obviously a new age hindu meditating type of person, barefoot and knotted hair, the way he was dressed, etc, and talking kindly to children and people around him.....that he had a Christlike aura......aka he had a spirit that seemed Christ-like......angel of light that was very winsome......very deceptive. It was the first time I actually saw someone like that.....but it is going to increase, we are going to see it more and more, in Christian churches as well as the world....and be aware the son of perdition will have that same counterfeit christ spirit, with a STRONG kind of magnetism.....aka strong delusion. Perfectly foreseen by the Lord Jesus: Matthew 24:23-27 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
