  1. Hi Betha, i will tell you my testimony of what the Lord revealed to me and my daughter. The Lord sent the 3 of us to a mission abroad, me and my 2 daughters. While on the way to the airport, the Lord led me to worship Him throughout the journey to the airport. So it was a very beautiful early morning trip. At the check in counter, the lady asked us of our visa, and i was totally blanked because i forgot to bring or be reminded that we need visa for this country, we had visa but its in the old passport and i forgot to remind the girls to check and bring, but i had mine because the Lord led me to bring mine to process my other visa during my spare time, and my other daugter had hers on her passport, but my other daughter left hers at home. After realizing this situation i quickly inquired the Lord, and prayed if He wants us to proceed, (the Lord said yes) and i prayed that to show us favor that the passport with the visa can arrive before the plane leaves. The airline staff were very helpful to us, and i quickly instructed my son to hurry and get the passport at home and to have it brought back to the airport, to make the story short, the passport with the visa did arrived, (God is so faithful) but we, me and my other daughter were told to board the plane first, then just 5 minutes before the scheduled time, the plane started to leave the tarmac or parking area, and my daughter called and said the passport arrived, and i said the plane is leaving. By the way, the pilot knew about our situation. So my daughter was left behind, and then during the flight, i asked the Lord what happened, the Lord told me, IF I WILL COME NOW TO TAKE YOU WITH ME, SHE WILL BE LEFT BEHIND. i was shocked, and asked so many questions, the Lord had promised me that He will teach my children. So this is one of His teaching her a lesson and us a lesson. The Lord led me to Romans 8, John14-16, 1John3, and told me, if my daughter keeps on disobeying the Lord and will not allow the Spirit of God to lead her since she wont obey, then He will not live IN her. The Lord then told me about His people, that many thought that He is In them because of the works they do for Him, but the Lord is serious in us obeying Him and not grieving Him. Only those who do the will of My Father can enter the Kingdom of God. so back to your question, to answer it. I would take the advice of paul to make our calling and election sure. To examine myself daily if the Spirit of God is in me, if Jesus lives in me. And repent as quickly as the Lord admonish or rebuke me. So back to what happened, the Lord spoke to my daughter and until she was willing to submit and obey the Lord and repented and understand, the Lord forgave her and then we claim Luke 11:13 for apart from the Lord in us, its not easy to obey and please God, and after that the Holy Spirit lives in her and she was really trasformed. It was not quick and easy thing. The experience taught us a great lesson and made us understand the importance of the Holy Spirit to be in us, and not to grieve Him. He is gentle and sweet and meek, He will not force us. He lets us choose to receive Him or reject Him, if we constantly defy or disobey Him it means we are rejecting Him. If we reject Him, He will leave our body, but He is faithful that He is still with us, to continue to bring us back to Him, for He knows our weaknesses. all glory to God Shalom
  2. So day to day, we must include the Holy Spirit in our lives. In order to be led by Him. In order to know how we can obey Him. In all your ways, acknowledge Me and I shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:6 NLT [6] Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
  3. All glory to God! Hi, when Jesus said to His disciples, I chose you, you didnt chose me. Its very clear, that no one can really come to Jesus without God drawing us to Him. Even in John 1, we are born again not by the will of men but by God. Its very clear that whatever things we have is ALL by His grace. Not by our own works, power or might. But by His Spirit. And in this verse, i also believe that Jesus gave us a revelation or clue, that we can actually ask the Holy Spirit from the Father. Because He knew, that time will come with so many teachings and doctrines of men, even false teaching, that it will be impossible fo us to go back to God if we fall or back slidden. (Go back to our first love or relationship with the Father as when we first believe). And because of deception also. When the Holy Spirit indwells in us or is in us, we cannot continue to sin, we cannot continually disobey, because He will not dwell in us, for He is Holy, He cannot dwell in our body or make us His temple while we continue to sin. And many of us don’t understand this, and it is impossible to produce the fruit of the Holy Spirit without Him IN US. for it is He that is at work in us and causes us to produce fruit. That is why Jesus said apart from Him we can do nothing. So what paul said is true, that Holy Spirit is given in a sense, He will be IN us to only those who obey. Because in Romans 8, He will lead us and control us. Only those who are being led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God. So, when one TRULY repented and seek Gods mercy again and DECIDED to willingly walk in the Lord, and be obedient. We can actually ask the Father for the Holy Spirit to indwell or be IN US again. Notice this verse. John 14:17 NLT [17] He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn't looking for him and doesn't recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. with you and in you. shalom! Be blessed!
  4. Hi Ryan, i praise God that you are seeking to be closer to Him. He will give you the desires of your heart. I want to share to you what the Lord taught me. Isaiah 59:1-2 NLT [1] Listen! The LORD's arm is not too weak to save you, nor is his ear too deaf to hear you call. [2] It's your sins that have cut you off from God. Because of your sins, he has turned away and will not listen anymore. yes, this still applies today. God is the same yesterday today and tomorrow. God has given us a way to be able to be near Him again through repentance of every disobedience in our life. But we must not do the same sin again and again, we must learn what He is teaching us. When He ascended and the Holy Spirit came to us, He said the Holy Spirit will convict the world of sin, notice why world, and not just believers or any particular person, it is because Holy Spirit is with ALL men, He is beside us telling us the things that God wants and does not want us to do, (some people call it conscience). In order to walk with the Lord in our life here on earth, we must be able to listen to His voice. John 10:27 NLT [27] My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. so, when we hear Him, we must follow Him, by following, it is obeying to what He is telling us. And yes, it is very important to know Him so we can know it is Him who is talking to us, that it is His voice that we are hearing, for there are 3 voices that we hear everyday, ( the Lords voice, our voice and the evil ones voice), that is why we are also told to test every spirit. We can know the character of God or His ways by reading His Word. And the examples of the life of His servants and the people of Israel. Why He is angry at them, or what made God punish Israel, and how God loves them and how God answered them and helped them everytime they call upon Him and repented. And how God punished them when they disobey and worshipped idols. And you will also learn what the promises if God when we obey. obedience is very important. The Lord said, “OBEDIENCE IS BETTER THAN SACRIFICE” for obedience shows your faith, that you believed in Him and trust Him. God hates unbelief the most. God will never fail to show Himself to you if you love Him and abide in Him. John 14:21 NLT [21] Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them." Finally, my advice to you, when you pray, kneel down, humble yourself to the Lord, ask Him to search your heart of unrepented sins, and repent of it. Then tell Him with all your heart what your desire is, ask Him to help you love Him more, seek Him more. And to give you a willing heart to obey Him and to be faithful to Him. If you are willing, really willing to give your life to Him. He will give you grace. And im sure you will experience His presence. Its not by power nor might, but by My Spirit, says the Lord. Luke 11:13 NLT [13] So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him." Be Blessed!
  5. I believe, God will have mercy on whom He will have mercy, even the homosexuals, all kinds of sin is the same. But once we receive the grace of God and the Holy Spirit, we must put away sin, stop sinning in other words, sin that leads to death. We must understand what God has given us in order for us to have fellowship with Him again, in order for us to call Him Father again, He gave His Son to suffer for us to save us, and how can we continue to sin (deliberately) and just think we can go back anytime. What if there is no last moment to repent. We must study the past or history, when God hardened the heart of Pharoah. We really cannot take God for granted. The FEAR OF THE LORD is the beginning of WISDOM. Psalm 19:13 NASB [13] Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous sins; Let them not rule over me; Then I will be blameless, And I shall be acquitted of great transgression.
  6. Revelation 22:10-21 NLT [10] Then he instructed me, "Do not seal up the prophetic words in this book, for the time is near. [11] Let the one who is doing harm continue to do harm; let the one who is vile continue to be vile; let the one who is righteous continue to live righteously; let the one who is holy continue to be holy." [12] "Look, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me to repay all people according to their deeds. [13] I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End." [14] Blessed are those who wash their robes. They will be permitted to enter through the gates of the city and eat the fruit from the tree of life. [15] Outside the city are the dogs-the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idol worshipers, and all who love to live a lie. [16] "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this message for the churches. I am both the source of David and the heir to his throne. I am the bright morning star." [17] The Spirit and the bride say, "Come." Let anyone who hears this say, "Come." Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires drink freely from the water of life. [18] And I solemnly declare to everyone who hears the words of prophecy written in this book: If anyone adds anything to what is written here, God will add to that person the plagues described in this book. [19] And if anyone removes any of the words from this book of prophecy, God will remove that person's share in the tree of life and in the holy city that are described in this book. [20] He who is the faithful witness to all these things says, "Yes, I am coming soon!" Amen! Come, Lord Jesus! [21] May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with God's holy people.
  7. Glory to God. All praises and glory belongs to Him alone.
  8. Romans 8:19 NLT [19] For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are. so exciting! So looking forward to know our true family in the Lord! So fun and joyful and happy to talk about our Father.
  9. John 14:30-31 NLT [30] "I don't have much more time to talk to you, because the ruler of this world approaches. He has no power over me, [31] but I will do what the Father requires of me, so that the world will know that I love the Father. Come, let's be going. This is one of the treasure that the Lord revealed to me..... and it gives me a lot of encouragement. When we face trials, persecutions, the worlds hatred, discouragement, problems, when everything just doesn’t go the way it should be bec we based it or expected it to happen in the world standard ..... its just like THE RULER OF THIS WORLD APPROACHES. then and but Jesus said HE HAS NO POWER OVER ME. Wow! It means we should not allow it to affect us, it should have no power over us, it is coming approaching, so what? AND JESUS SAID, BUT I WILL DO WHAT THE FATHER REQUIRES OF ME SO THAT THE WORLD WILL KNOW THAT I LOVE THE FATHER. COME LETS BE GOING. If we want to follow Jesus, we should follow what He do and reacts and think. He said, and DECIDED. So we should also decide, decide to do what the Father requires of us so that the world will know that we love the Father. We love God. What does the Father requires us to do then? ..... Micah 6:8 comes to my mind. and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. Doing what is RIGHT. To love MERCY, To walk HUMBLY WITH GOD. How can we do all these if we don’t really get to know God? To know what is right for Him. We are born into this world with the standards or teachings of this world, what we know that is right might not be the RIGHT THING OF GOD. that is why God said, My people perish because they lack knowledge, lack knowledge of the Holy One. Hosea 4:6 .... My people are being destroyed because they don’t know Me. Hosea 6:6 NLT [6] I want you to show love, not offer sacrifices. I want you to know Me more than I want burnt offerings. So we really must learn to give our time and effort to know God. If we really and truly love Him. Shalom!
  10. This is so true. John 8:31-32 NLT [31] Jesus said to the people who believed in him, "You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. [32] And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." Matthew 15:8-11 NLT [8] 'These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. [9] Their worship is a farce, for they teach man-made ideas as commands from God.'" [10] Then Jesus called to the crowd to come and hear. "Listen," he said, "and try to understand. [11] It's not what goes into your mouth that defiles you; you are defiled by the words that come out of your mouth." what is very important to being a child of God is to share to our brothers and sisters the lesson God is teaching us, His ways. thru our experience or by our experiences in life God is showing us His ways when we obey Him. We have all one way or the other experience doing foolish things, but God by His mercy and grace revealed to us and brought us back to Him by His truth. So we should understand the situation of others and just pray that the Lord will reveal Himself to them also as He has to us. Then we could encourage one another to obey and follow Jesus, then when we all the children of God do, we all have unity. i believe in my heart that the prayer of Jesus will happen, that we all will be united, bec He is in us and we will be in Him, then the world will know that God sent Jesus, that Jesus is true and alive. One Spirit, one Lord, one body. Shalom!
  11. Hi George and everyone, The Lord allowed me to experience the enemy’s deception. And after that The Lord taught me a great lesson. what almost all of you discussed here is true... But we must remain on our focus to follow Jesus. Every time i have a question with spiritual warfare, ( bec of my experience) the Lord would ask me, “what did I do?” “Did I do that” “How did I react”.... then after the Holy Spirit reminded me on how Jesus walked here on earth... the Lord would then tell me “then follow Me”. John 14:30-31 NLT [30] "I don't have much more time to talk to you, because the ruler of this world approaches. He has no power over me, [31] but I will do what the Father requires of me, so that the world will know that I love the Father. Come, let's be going. 1 John 5:18-21 NLT [18] We know that God's children do not make a practice of sinning, for God's Son holds them securely, and the evil one cannot touch them. [19] We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the control of the evil one. [20] And we know that the Son of God has come, and he has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And now we live in fellowship with the true God because we live in fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life. [21] Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God's place in your hearts. UNBELIEF IS THE SIN THAT GOD HATES MOST. Obedience and trusting the Lord and worshipping Him defeats the enemy. Always look at the CROSS then we would be reminded of the things that matters most.
  12. Hi, after reading the inter actions, all i can say is to make sure our salvation, to work out with trembling and fear, for even paul warned us, to becareful if you think you are standing firm lest you fall. Also Jesus already said not all who calls me Lord Lord can enter the Kingdom of heaven but only those who do the will of My Father. And also Jesus taught us to follow Him to obey Him, His sheep hears His voice and follow Him. 1John1 gives us assurance that when we sin and confess He is faithful to forgive us, so daily or constantly if we want to obey and please the Lord, we should let Him examine us, and repent if there are sins that He will reveal to us, really and literally walk in the Spirit of God, like letting Him lead us in everything we do. He is alive and is very much active in our life, He will teach us and guide us, if we call on Him and allow Him to transform us into His likeness. Just be willing. He will work in us. Praise the Lord and may God bless you all.
  13. John 14:15-17 NLT [15] "If you love me, obey my commandments. [16] And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. [17] He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn't looking for him and doesn't recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. John 15:4-5 NLT [4] Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. [5] "Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. John 16:7-15 NLT [7] But in fact, it is best for you that I go away, because if I don't, the Advocate won't come. If I do go away, then I will send him to you. [8] And when he comes, he will convict the world of its sin, and of God's righteousness, and of the coming judgment. [9] The world's sin is that it refuses to believe in me. [10] Righteousness is available because I go to the Father, and you will see me no more. [11] Judgment will come because the ruler of this world has already been judged. [12] "There is so much more I want to tell you, but you can't bear it now. [13] When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future. [14] He will bring me glory by telling you whatever he receives from me. [15] All that belongs to the Father is mine; this is why I said, 'The Spirit will tell you whatever he receives from me.' The Lord revealed to me that Holy Spirit is with all men, and when we believe what Jesus did for us on the cross, and believing is obeying too, He will live in us. WITH US AND IN US is not the same thing. So what I’m trying to say, we must make sure He lives in us always. For He is holy, and when the Holy Spirit is grieved by our actions and we don’t repent when He teaches us, He will not live in us, but He will still be with us to continue to tell us to repent.... it is impossible to produce the fruit of the Holy Spirit without the Spirit of God IN us. Just wanting to share to the people of God, to be enlightened, because this is very important. Romans 8:12-14 NLT [12] Therefore, dear brothers and sisters, you have no obligation to do what your sinful nature urges you to do. [13] For if you live by its dictates, you will die. But if through the power of the Spirit you put to death the deeds of your sinful nature, you will live. [14] For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. shalom!
  14. I love this verse, it reminds me not to seek my own desires or pleasures in this world, but to seek what pleases the Lord Jesus Christ. Everything is all about our Lord and King.
