  1. My point is in answer to @SurrenderedWife s comments about the degree of nit picking, and sharing the type of mind I have been dealing with personally and in my family. She asked for personal examples. I have shared mine. It's not a comment about intelligence levels, but the sort of 'logic is all and I have to understand everything right now' mentality one finds in MENSA type mindsets.
  2. Oh, love that will not let me go I rest my weary soul in thee I give you back the life I owe And in your ocean depths its flow May richer, fuller be My life is not my own It's yours My life is not my own I know it's yours Oh, light that follows all my way I yield my flickering torch to thee And my heart restores its borrowed ray That in your sunshine's blaze its day May brighter, fairer be So light a fire in my heart And I'll burn for you So light a fire in my heart And I'll burn for you Oh, joy, that seeks me through the pain I cannot close my heart to thee I trace the rainbow through the rain And feel the promise is not in vain That morn shall tearless be So anoint me with joy And joyful I will be So anoint me with joy And joyful I will be Oh, cross that's lifing up my head I dare not ask to fly from thee I lay in dust life's glory dead And from the ground there blossoms red Life that shall endless be We will sing: Holy, holy Is the King of Kings And we will sing: Holy, holy Is the King of Kings On that day we will sing: We will join with the angels and we will sing I didn't truly understand this hymn until this morning. He wi not let me go, He will come and find me if I go astray.
  3. Oh, love that will not let me go I rest my weary soul in thee I give you back the life I owe And in your ocean depths its flow May richer, fuller be My life is not my own It's yours My life is not my own I know it's yours Oh, light that follows all my way I yield my flickering torch to thee And my heart restores its borrowed ray That in your sunshine's blaze its day May brighter, fairer be So light a fire in my heart And I'll burn for you So light a fire in my heart And I'll burn for you Oh, joy, that seeks me through the pain I cannot close my heart to thee I trace the rainbow through the rain And feel the promise is not in vain That morn shall tearless be So anoint me with joy And joyful I will be So anoint me with joy And joyful I will be Oh, cross that's lifing up my head I dare not ask to fly from thee I lay in dust life's glory dead And from the ground there blossoms red Life that shall endless be We will sing: Holy, holy Is the King of Kings And we will sing: Holy, holy Is the King of Kings On that day we will sing: We will join with the angels and we will sing One of my favourite hymns. I didn't fully understand it until this morning. Once we are His, we are always his.
  4. Yes. Me, my husband and son are all MENSA. We each had to be broken intellectually. Now praying for our son. Might be worth getting him to consider how much of medicine, science and technology we don't understand, and the makers of it don't understand how it works, but it does. It is a kind of faith when we use it. I know it's hard to step back and surrender control of this to God. Blessings to you and your husband.
  5. His recorded actions and reasoning over the whole of Christ's ministry show he was never a believer in the first place.
  6. no. You are setting Laws. You are saying the Law says we must observe the Saturday Sabbath.
  7. With my adult son I set aside a certain time each day, for about 15 mins, to pray for him. Then I leave the rest to God. Its easy to get exhausted and stressed out about these things. Trust in God for things to happen in His own time, and just leave the timing to God. When your husband has a question be brief, and when you have your time of prayer for him, ask God to answer your husband in his heart. 1 Peter 3 vs 1-2: 1 Wives, in the same way, submit yourselves to your husbands, so that even if they refuse to believe the word, they will be won over without words by the behavior of their wives 2 when they see your pure and reverent demeanor. Many words are not needed, discussion is not needed, just our behaviour is needed. Focus on your spiritual journey and all else will follow.
  8. You said it is more holy than the other 9 commandments. Why do you say that?
  9. The contradiction is in your assertion that God loves us more, and communicates with us more on one day of the week. Yes. You said that. I know you are very old, but you can read what you post.
  10. I have also shared it with my husband. It's a huge revelation for us both to have it crystallised like this. We both sort of knew, but now we know WHY and What we felt is correct.
  11. Thank you all. It seems internet etiquette is different to real life and ignoring people or questions or whole threads is ok. I will try to remember this.
  12. You clearly said the Sabbath command is the most dear to God.
  13. That days that God doesn't care about us as much on other days, and isn't as close. Can you see the contradictions in your post?
  14. Thank you. THANK YOU!!! I have read the entire linked thread. Thank you for highlighting it.
  15. You think not murdering, not committing idolatry or having other gods, not fornicating, etc etc is of less importance? Interesting.
  16. How do they affect us and what we do if we don't need to keep them?
  17. Your response to me was rude etc. Anyway, how do you feel about the other commandments?
  18. I receive instruction from Him every time I pray and study, through His Word and the Holy Spirit. What is different about the instructions on the Sabbath Assembly?
  19. So, are you saying we need to keep all the Holy Days, not just the weekly Sabbath?
  20. You mentioned the New World Order Bible. Are you, or have you ever been involved with Jehovah's witnesses? Their translation has many unique scripture wordings.
  21. I have come across this many times. You have had some good advice already. Sometimes God has to break our intellectual barrier, so maybe focus prayer on that?
  22. How rude, arrogant and patronising. I suggest a more appropriate response from you is to apologize for your mistaken assumption.
  23. You do realise we are not required to keep all the Jewish festivals, don't you? And this discussion is about the 10 commandments, not wider Law.
  24. God gave me particular skills, and work to do with them on weekends. He might just ask me why I did not use my unique and particular talents for good on weekends, and went to church instead or kept some Sabbath ideas of my own. He might say "I told you to rest and worship one day a week. I didnt specify which one. Why did you decide to choose a working day?' He might also say that He commands us to work, so why didnt I work and feed my family instead of claim welfare benefits so I could keep an unspecified Sabbath.
