  1. So then, ...why not tell us what the Holy Spirit tells us Salvation is?
  2. Yes I have, one time while camping in the Sierra Nevada Mountains at 7,000 feet as the Sun was setting I looked out over the mountains West towards the San Joaquin Valley and they were purple, ...verses from a childhood song we sang in school came to mind. For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain! America! America! God shed his grace on thee, Lord bless
  3. Aaa-men, Aaaa-men, Aaaamen, Amen, Amen! Sing it folks!
  4. Personally, no offense meant, ...but I don't understand why you would ask a question like this? Do you understand Salvation, ...being "saved?" Do you believe and understand all of humanity is born with their eternal destiny being Hell?
  5. Brother, ...and I say this in brotherly love, if you are struggling then you are at your river Jabbok experience in your walk with the Lord Gen 33:22-28. You really don't want to win in this wrestling match, ...you won't, ...I know, ...I've wrestled with God and I have come away from it limping too, however I have learned the lesson, Issac means, governed by God, ...like Paul said, when I was a child I thought like a child, but now that I'm a man I have put off the childish ways, ...the Holy Spirit will put up with our immature behavior when we are children in the Lord, ...but there is a time when He knows we need to mature, to become adults in the Lord, ...we do that by stop trying to run our own lives and relinquish all authority to the rule, reign, guide and direct our lives to the Holy Spirit and allow Him to rule, reign, guide and direct our life, ...that when we become Issac, ...governed by God, and I can tell you, if you do this, ...you won't have any trouble hearing the Holy Spirit speaking to you. Lord bless
  6. I think you might of overlooked or maybe considered another point, ...the author knew the truth, so since truth as opposed to differing opinions is what I believe this thread is about, yes that is true on the human level, ...however in the context of Biblical Truth, ...the Author, the Holy Spirit, of the Word of God is so far above human opinion that human opinion can't even be considered as a reliable source of the Truth. In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God, and the Word was God, and the Word became flesh, and tabernacled among us. And we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and of truth. Jesus is not the Truth, Jesus, the Word, ...is TRUTH, ...it's who/what He is. But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things and bring all things to your remembrance, whatever I have said to you. John 14:26 Lord bless
  7. Just like Behold and others here have done, ..study the Word to show yourself approved and then teach it, ...you have said you needed this and it really helped you, ...think about it, how did you receive it? By that still small voice inside of you that said, "This is Truth, this is Truth," 1 John 2:27, so study the Word and allow the Holy Spirit to teach you the Truth, ...like Behold said, so few know this, ...hearing, recognizing and learning the voice of the Holy Spirit living inside of them. Lord bless
  8. Thanks turtletwo for thinking of me, I appreciate it very much sister, ...back in the States our Church hosted a Pastor's Conference and a Worship Leaders Conference, in the months of March and May, Terry led worship at the Pastor's Conference and taught at the Worship Leaders Conference. The Conferences was held at the Presbyterian Conference Center at Lake Tahoe, CA, it was there I experienced worship so profound..., in March it snows all of the time, kinda like sealing us in, and when Terry would worship the Holy Spirit would come in such force, it was like a thick fog, so thick it was like it could be cut with a knife, ...interesting thing is there wasn't any hooting or hollering, croaking or barking, running laps or falling over, no..., Terry had quit playing and all was silent, there were grown men and their wives, standing with outstretched arms, their were those that sat with raised hands and there were those that were on their knees, ...and there was so much Love, so much Love that Terry had to stop it because we felt like we would die from being Loved so much. Thanks again dear one for the memories. Lord bless
  9. Not really, ...one of the meanings of the the word baptizō means to to cleanse by dipping or submerging, to wash, to make clean with water, to wash one’s self, bathe. The disciples of Jesus were born again when Jesus breathed on them: And when He had said this, He breathed on them and said to them, Receive the Holy Spirit. John 20:22 They were born again in the same manner as Adam was given life by God breathing life into his nostrils, or face, providing for him and all of humanity a blood drive system of life: For the life of the flesh is in the blood. Lev 17:11a Whereas Matt 3:11 is talking about two different baptisms: I indeed baptize you with water to repentance. But He who comes after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire; We are baptized, cleansed of our sin, when we are born again and we receive the Holy Spirit into our being, then there is the baptism of the Holy Spirit, a second baptism as some call it, that gives us the power to lead a Spirit filled life: But you shall receive power, the Holy Spirit coming upon you. And you shall be witnesses to Me both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and to the end of the earth. Acts 1:8 When we are born again we receive the Holy Spirit, ...but we don't have the power to live a Spirit filled life, ...when the Holy Spirit dwells in us we are given eternal zoe life, ...that is the life of the Holy Spirit Himself, our new creation in Christ man has a new Spirit drive system of life living within the old blood driven system of life in our physical body. We need to wait for the Holy Spirit to empower us, what that means is we are to relinquish our authority over our lives and allow the Holy Spirit to rule, reign, guide and direct our lives, ...when we do that we are allowing the Holy Spirit to energize the zoe life, given to us when we were born again, and then the Holy Spirit's life is manifested in and through our lives, ...we are literally walking in the Spirit. Lord bless
  10. Yep, ...we were taught back in High School in the 60's to always use three examples to make a point. Lord bless
  11. That was the music being played when I was saved in '86,, ...along with the Praise Music, ...that is the music I brought with me in '91, wore out the cassettes, ...praise the Lord for YouTube, ...I also enjoy Terry Clark. Lord bless
  12. There is an ongoing debate as to whether Angels in this verse is talking about humans or Angelic beings, the Word tells us Abraham, Lot, Manoah, Gideon Zacharais and Mary were visited by Angelic beings, ...my own personal belief is it is talking about both. I don't want to come off as sensational, but I have been visited twice by Angels, in my first church back in the States our pastor taught that all angels are male, ...that there are not any female Angels, ...well I had a female Angel stay in my house for a week while I was out of town, and the second time a female Angel came to my aide when my car broke down, I believe these visitations, along with many supernatural signs were given to me to prepare me for what Father was calling me to do for the Lord. Jesus even tells us there are female Angels: For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in Heaven. Mat 22:30 Lord bless
  13. You are correct, that dreams are an message from God, how many times I have dreamed I was falling as a child, or trying to run away from some dangerous situation and my feet were lead, ...I woke up terrified, covered in sweat, my heart was pounding, ...but my body was sleeping, at rest, ...so what is the message in these dreams, ...that man is more than his mortal body, he is a spirit with a soul that lives in a mortal body and one day the body will die and the spirit/soul will go to one of two different places, ...to be eternally with God in Heaven, or to be absent from God eternally in outer darkness, burning in a lake of fire, ...isn't that the point of Nebuchadnezzar's dream, ...he was terrified and called for someone to interpret his dream, ...but he didn't take to heart and believe the interpretation so he continued on in his prideful arrogance until God broke him and he lived with the cattle eating grass for 7 years, ...until God restored his mind and he understood his mortal state and turned to God for Salvation. Lord bless
  14. Dear Maryjane, you are correct in what you believe, ...the gifts of the Holy Spirit are only given to born again children of God. Anyone who is not a born again child of God that can perform miracles is using magic and that power comes from the devil. The most desired tourist attraction here is to follow a shaman and walk across a bed of red hot coals of fire, ...the Bible says that is impossible Pro 6:28, but many do it and are very excited when they come out the other end, ...so there is a supernatural miracle, ...but not in the power of the Holy Spirit. There is a dear brother here that went to observe once, ...he began to pray against the demonic power and God granted his prayer, the Shaman danced, chanted and waved his green Aute leaves for an hour, all to no avail, ...he said there were about 30 tourists and many locals there, ...finally the shaman stopped his incantations and stared searching the audience, ...when his gaze finally fell on my brother his eyes literally turned red, ...he threw his leaves into the pit and walked away. I could also take you to a house that has a Mana (power) stone in the flower bed, ...people come from all over the world to touch it and receive power. The Holy Spirit through Paul tells us at the end of the Church Age especially: ...whose (the anti-christ) coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 2 Thess 2:9 The anti-christ will be using the same satanic power that magicians have used from the beginning Exo 7:11 and are using today, ...however, today's magic is no longer slight of hand, ...but actual demonic power. Here is a little to maybe help clarify the Gifts: Romans 12 is a list of the Gifts 1 Cor 12 is the manifestations of the Gifts Eph 4:11-14 is the ministry and purpose of the Gifts Lord bless
  15. The speaking in tongues mentioned in the Acts is a conformation to what Jesus old His disciples to do: But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Acts 1:8 If we correctly divide the Word we find gift of tongues were given in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and finally Ephesus, ...the uttermost part of the earth at that time. We don't find the gift given in Berea, Corinth, Derbe, Joppa, Lystra, Miletus, Philippi, Rome, and many more. Unfortunately many over look the real intention of Jesus saying the disciples would receive power from and by the Holy Spirit, ...after they had waited, ...this power only comes to those that wait and have relinquished to the Holy Spirit the authority to rule, reign and guide their lives, ...some find it, but many don't. Lord bless
