  1. You are actually forgiven by the blood of Jesus. You may appropriate that... or refuse (if you believe you have the free will to do so).
  2. Please see my edited response. It may answer your question.
  3. Being born of water means having symbolically crossed the Red Sea and been delivered from sin (Egypt). Repentance is something that happens when you enter a covenant with God to listen to His word and pay heed to what it says. This is what happened at Mount Sinai when Israel entered their covenant with God. You can believe in Jesus and remain in the outer court of the tabernacle. Or you can wash at the brazen laver, repenting of your sin, so that you may enter the holy place where God is - otherwise known as the Kingdom of God. This was the terminology that Jesus used with Nicodemas when He discussed being born again. He said you must be born again to enter the kingdom of God. He also said that whoever believes in Him will have eternal life. So there are really two different matters here. Having eternal life... and entering the kingdom. Believe and have eternal life. Repent and enter the kingdom.

    Friends from St. Louis say the whole city has been excited like they were back in 1982 over the Cardinals first World Series appearance in over 15 years... kinda like Philly when the Eagles won the Superbowl.
  5. This is very clever, yet it sidesteps almost everything else that was said in between. I am sorry. I felt the most important thing that you asked about was whether you were saved or not (point number 1). Blessings to you and may the Spirit guide your heart.
  6. Please know that I do not want to put a yoke upon anyone. For trying to place commands for salvation on anyone is a burden that they cannot bear. However please consider this as a matter not of salvation but of being made holy by God, being set apart and sanctified for His use. If the Spring feasts (Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits and Pentecost) have been fulfilled in the first coming of Christ and the Fall feasts (Trumpets, Atonement and Tabernacles) point to His return AND if the feasts were to be abandoned after His first coming... why did God appoint the Fall feasts at all? If it was good to observe the Spring feasts up until the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, then it would seem good to observe the Fall feasts up until His return. I think of the moedim as dress rehearsals as though they were for some magnificent once in a lifetime set of performances that were to take place. At least the first 2 or 3 moedim have taken place. We observe their occurrence by looking back at the great performance of Yeshua on that certain Passover and Firstfruits when He died and was resurrected. But do we now simply forget what happened and abandon the rest of the appointments as well? If Passover were a musical recital, we might continue year after year reminding ourselves of that perfect performance by singing the songs we heard there. However, there are more recitals to come. Do we stop the dress rehearsals for those future events now that the first one has passed? I personally believe we will observe them all throughout the Millennial Reign as well. Blessings to all.
  7. I heard that back-slidden means that at some point in your past you loved Jesus more than you do right now.
  8. Israel was saved from Egypt not for anything they did. He made a way for them to cross the Red Sea to escape. They believed in their heart by walking across. There was no promise made on their part. They did not do anything righteous except for believing that they could escape Pharaoh. And so they were saved. If they did not believe that God would prevent them from drowning, they would have stayed in Egypt. Sanctification began at Mount Sinai when they said "We will do all the Lord has commanded."
  9. 2 things... plain and simple. 1) Romans 10:9 tells how to be saved. If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 2) Matthew 6:24, although it is talking about money specifically, it holds true for anything such as drugs that we hold onto more than God. No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. These are two distinct matters from one another - salvation that requires nothing on your part; and sanctification which requires your cooperation.
  10. The charismatics are very alluring. They draw people away from the truth. They change the plain meaning of verses that they build their doctrine around. That sounds like what Satan did with Eve.
  11. Actually, it does! Thank you! Furthermore, it goes on to say, "whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God" as it pertains to judging one another. Mutual edification is the key.
  12. Thank you all. I'll let you know how things turn out.
  13. He is able. All things are possible for God. However, that doesn't mean that He will keep you from stumbling.
  14. The question is whether our repentance secures our salvation... or does Christ's atonement alone secure it.
