  1. George, Jesus had a very short ministry to His Father of three human years on the planet, well, actually only to Israel. The 'greater' works that He said we would do meant as in sequence, counting, as in age, and a person born-again in his or her early twenties could very well live several decades into his seventies and that's a lot of years and a lot of works to perform in his or her service to their Lord. The Greek word is: μείζων Transliteration: meizōn meaning many, or much. We get the English "Mega" from this word.
  2. Yes, your signatures say that quite boldly.
  3. There are two perspectives to consider when you read and/or study the Bible. The first perspective is the Eternal Perspective of God in which He contemplated His Elect as sinless in His Mind in Trinity, and once the plan was considered among the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit God began to create the universe, TIME, matter, the 'heaven' and the earth, and man. The second perspective is of man from the perspective in TIME in which he is a sinner in need of a Savior. Read it is this context - actually, when you come across certain passages in which a perspective is being offered to consider it and come to the knowledge of the truth.
  4. There is no "leading a person to Christ." God is the One who calls and God is the One that does not call. But ONLY the Holy Spirit can "lead a person" to Himself. Only the Holy Spirit can do this - and who actually can do this, not men.
  5. God keeps His Promises and God expects His people to keep their promises. Divorce was allowed because of Moses. But from the beginning it was not allowed. And it is still not allowed, but Christians disobey God in the choice for a mate, and second, in deciding to get divorced. Imagine if Christ were to divorce His Bride, the Church, because of some sexual or non-sexual sin.
  6. QUOTE: "Women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the law says. If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church. 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 I myself do not know of any church that completely follows this passage of scripture. If you attend a church that dose follow this completely, or you yourself follow it ? How is it carried out? Are all the women in your church silent not allowed to speak at all? As Paul seems to be saying here? How dose that work? Also I don't understand what Paul means here by saying "as the law says". I thought that when Christ died, we were free from following "the Law". What law is Paul referring to here?" RESPONSE: When Paul wrote this to the Christians already saved at Corinth the subject matter from 1Co. 12-14 has to do with the gifts of the Spirit of which he is addressing the Vocal Gifts (prophecy, interpretation, tongues). It makes no sense for Paul to instruct in the vocal gifts - of which he is speaking about prophecy and then at conclusion he commands the women to remain/stay quiet. Although Corinth was a Roman province it still had Hebrews/"Jews" living in these territories and with a synagogue sprinkled here and there that housed the Chosen People of God every Saturday for worship. Under the Law the men and women would sit separately - men sat with men and women sat with women. This made communication with their husbands very disruptive when a question was needing an answer, the women could not turn to their side-kick and ask, but the question would be shouted across the room. "As saith the law" does not refer to the Law of Moses, but the law of the synagogue which parted the husbands and their wives from sitting near each other. There is nothing in the Law of Moses about women not talking/shutting up in congregation. As a matter of fact it was the women - in my guestimation - that outnumbered the men in the vocal gifts of which prophetess and prophecy were hand in hand.
  7. First, Jesus is speaking to His people, a people ALREADY in Covenant with Him and are all awaiting the Promised Kinsman-Redeemer and Messiah - to sit on David's throne and rule all the world, and people, and tongue, and tribe. This "come to me" has to do with relationship, not salvation.
  8. Atonement ends all that. Either Jesus died on the cross at Calvary and all the sin of God's Elect is atoned on that day (it is and was - the Holy Spirit in us is proof this happened), or He didn't and Jesus' death meant nothing if God is still in the atonement/forgiveness stage with His people. The verses you use have to do with relationship, not salvation. Relationship.
  9. Your pastor is in error. Either all sin of God's Elect are forgiven or they are not. Either Christ died for the Elect on that day at Calvary and atonement was made, or Christ did not died for the sin of the Elect? Any sin of the Elect not paid for by the Son would have kept Jesus in the tomb/grave. Another thing...the kingdom of God is Christ Himself. Christ is within the born-again Covenant believer. And the kingdom of God is Christ in you. But WHO is the kingdom of God? The answer is Christ Himself. Romans 14:17 (KJV) 17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. Father = Righteousness Son = Peace Joy = Holy Spirit. Righteousness, peace, and joy are within the believer because the believer is possessed of Christ. Lo! the kingdom does not come by observation for the kingdom of God is within you. Right?
  10. Music that is made by anyone will minister to the soul. Spiritual music - music ordained of God - will minister to the spirit. Which one do you want to feed?
  11. God hates it because it is of the world.
  12. What did you fast? Food? Water? Marital relations? And who told you to fast 40 days?
  13. God has never 'held sin of the Elect against them.' Never. God is Immutable (does not change.) He contemplated His named-Elect as holy and sinless and that is the way He has ever seen us and them. Always.
  14. One of the great purposes of fellowship with brethren is the ongoing dispensing of spiritual gift-usage and the knowledge of having someone near and dear. We need access to each other's spiritual gifts and all they are in Christ. There are circumstances that require dis-fellowship and rejection but one who is not dead is still alive in Christ and needs Doctor Jesus being possessed by Christ in the other brethren to strengthen and support. The difference as to when the brethren overcomes their sin or not can all be had in the assistance of their brethren - no matter what shape their lives - spiritual and natural - are in. As with Peter, Jesus said, "when you recover, strengthen the brethren." And so on and on.
  15. How about the Profit of Love? 1 Corinthians 13:3 (KJV) 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
