  1. It will go back to the Supreme Court as it will be a test of the "individual mandate" aspect of the law.
  2. and through all of this ... you reaching out for attention ... whether you realize it or not because deep within you God gave a heart to want to be loved. The problem is you're trying to fill a void ... that was only truly going to be filled by the one who created you. Because everything else you're posting is just a "shock and awe" sort of post ... as if I've not seen it a million times. I'm not surprised ... as I'm praying for a deeply hurting person with a huge void in her life. As I've said over and over again ... do you want to have a conversation about what true love is?
  3. To accept something ... is doing something .. is it a work -- or just receiving a gift? Perhaps you're only 18 inches away from the Kingdom!
  4. Heb 11:1 Faith, therefore, is the substance of things waited for, the evidence of things not seen. Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please God; for he that comes to God must believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of those that diligently seek him. Eph 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, Eph 2:9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

    ... and yet Satan walks about like a lion seeking whom He may devour. To ignore the enemy ... is just as big as a error as giving the enemy too much credit. Both extremes can become a problem. However, Paul said, we are not ignorant of the enemies tactics ... As the Chinese General Sun Tzu said about wars ... "If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

    I removed some snide remarks, and bickering from this thread which were unnecessary and certainly not constructive to the conversation. Debate the subject ... not the person! Show some love! God bless!
  7. Rev 5:1 And I saw in the right hand of him that was seated on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. Rev 5:2 And I saw a strong angel preaching with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book and to loose its seals? Rev 5:3 And no one was able not in the heaven nor in the earth neither under the earth to open the book neither to look upon it. Rev 5:4 And I wept much because no one was found worthy to open the book nor to read it neither to look upon it. Rev 5:5 And one of the elders said unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, who has overcome to open the book and to loose its seven seals. Rev 5:6 And I saw, and, behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four animals and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. Rev 5:7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that was seated upon the throne. Rev 5:8 And when he had taken the book, the four animals and the twenty-four elders fell on their faces before the Lamb, each one of them having harps, and golden vials full of incense, which are the prayers of saints. Rev 5:9 And they sang a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book and to open its seals, for thou wast slain and hast redeemed us unto God by thy blood, out of every kindred and tongue and people and nation Rev 5:10 and hast made us unto our God kings and priests, and we shall reign on the earth. Rev 5:13 And I heard every creature which is in heaven and upon the earth and under the earth and such as are upon the sea and all that are in it, saying, Blessing and honour and glory and power, be unto him that is seated upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. Actually yes ... if all of heaven is worshiping the Lamb of God who died for the sins of the world ... why wouldn't we? There's nothing paradoxical.
  8. Your initial question stated that you didn't want to spend eternity with someone that didn't speak your language. The Bible refers to a time that ALL PEOPLE will speak a common language AGAIN! Zephaniah 3:9 For then I will restore to the peoples the pure language that they may all call upon the name of the LORD to serve him with one consent. I see that you're back to make shock value statements to see the responses ... to that end you've succeeded. Perhaps they've never seen someone like you on a forum board ... but I've been doing Worthy for 20 years now ... and amazingly nothing is new under the sun. I've seen many people that have come onto Worthy in similar situations ... and come to realize the truth. That you are truly LOVED! You're hurting so much ... and you can see it in your very words ... as the Bible says, from the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. Your words show that you've been hurting for some time. But I do have some good news for you, there is a promise for all those who believe. Rev 21:3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. Rev 21:4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” Perhaps you're willing to investigate what true love is a bit further with me? Let me know! God bless, George

    First of all, this book is what helped me "quantum leap" into my victorious walk. Once you understand you are fighting an enemy ... and then you realize that the enemy is already defeated ... now how do you apply principles of taking every thought captive ... and being able to walk in victory each and every day. I will cover in the class some of the things that can be problematic that Anderson doesn't cover ... from my own experiences. However, you can't throw out the baby with the bath water! There's so much valuable information stored that if used properly ... will help you realize how the enemy is at work ... how he attempts to find footholds to become strongholds in your life ... and then how to retake control of your life. I saw criticism from Equip.org in this thread. Hank Hanegraff is hardly someone I take criticism from since his organization doesn't believe in the State of Israel ... anything prophetically related was already completed ... before someone criticizes ... you should check out the critic! The book is a practical understanding of finding your identity in who you are in the Lord ... your spiritual position ... and how to assert your authority ... God bless, George

    So my line of reasoning is in line with God's character -- his Goodness, His Love, His Righteousness! I truly believe that God wrote EVERYONE's NAME in the BOOK OF LIFE from the beginning, in line with His very character and their free-will choices determine whether or not they are BLOTTED OUT! My initial position comes from a POSITION that God is PURE, HOLY and RIGHTEOUS! @Butero Your position begins with the understanding that God CREATED iniquity, and thus EVERY evil -- is attributable to God -- seriously -- this is what you are advocating. You are going to STAND BEFORE GOD -- with this understanding? Seriously? This is why ... from the beginning MISUNDERSTANDING of who God is ... has warped the rest of your theological foundations.

    This is vital to understanding how to find rest … more on this later. But as you study the Scriptures are clear as it says in 1 John 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they were of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out so that it might be revealed that they were not all of us. So let us return to Psalm 69:28 Let them be blotted out of the Book of Life, and not be written with the righteous. So it appears to be in the Old Testament as we render the understanding of whom is written in the books … everyone is written in … and latter blotted out! Notice that David wrote of Judas … as though his name was written in the book of life … almost foreshadowing that “everyone” even the worst of God's enemies are written in … however, their deeds showed that they were NOT TRULY of God – and thus blotted out! I realize that this is DEBATABLE, and I'm am in no way dogmatic about this position, however, I find it interesting the terminology that both Moses and David use as they write about the “blotting out of the names” in the book – about blotting people whom if God foreknew would be lost – why write them in to begin with? Not as if they could “lose” their salvation, but rather their deeds proved that they were NEVER part of the Kingdom! Thus, we have the understanding that God LOVES EVERYONE and desires EVERYONE to be saved … everyone was written in the book of life … however, we now see that they denied His salvation … and thus were blotted out … So in Hebraic thought, you were written in God's book before the foundation of the world -- which is in line with what the New Testament wrote.

    In Psalms, David writes this ... Psa 56:8 You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book? Again David writes this ... Psa 139:16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. But this is really the passage I want to focus on – notice what David wrote in Psalm 69:28 -- Psa 69:28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living; let them not be enrolled among the righteous. I want to focus on this particular PSALM as this gives us an understanding of the passages in Revelation … where Yeshua (Jesus) mentions those “blotted out of the Lamb's book” of life. You will notice that Psalm 69 is a Messianic passage as many of the verses used in this Psalm are attributed to Yeshua (Jesus). For example, in Psalm 69:9 For zeal for your house has consumed me, and the reproaches of those who reproach you have fallen on me. This verse is quoted in John 2 – John 2:15 Then He made a whip of cords and drove them all out of the Temple, both the sheep and oxen. He dumped out the coins of the moneychangers and overturned their tables. Joh 2:16 To those selling doves, He said, “Get these things out of here! Stop making My Father’s house a marketplace!” Joh 2:17 His disciples remembered that it is written, “Zeal for your House will consume Me!” In Psalm 69:21 They gave me poison for food, and for my thirst they gave me sour wine to drink. And you read the scenario in John 19:28-30 After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), “I thirst.” Joh 19:29 A jar full of sour wine stood there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth. Joh 19:30 When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. Now when you read Acts 1:20, we read … Acts 1:20 “For it is written in the Book of Psalms, “‘May his camp become desolate, and let there be no one to dwell in it’; and “‘Let another take his office.’ This is connected to Psalm 69:25, Psalm 69:25 May their camp be a desolation; let no one dwell in their tents. So we now know that this is connected to Judas – as the Apostles chose Matthias to replace Judas! I want you to THINK about this … when Jesus said this, Mat 7:21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord!’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Mat 7:22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we prophesy in Your name, and drive out demons in Your name, and perform many miracles in Your name?’ Mat 7:23 Then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you. Get away from Me, you workers of lawlessness!’” In my heart of hearts, I believe that Yeshua (Jesus) was looking DIRECTLY at Judas Iscariot as he said these words. If you think about the situation in the Upper Room, just before Jesus died … they asked amongst themselves – is it I Lord? Now if Judas HAD NEVER cast out demons, or perform miracles … wouldn't all the apostles pointed at Judas saying … Judas doesn't do any of the miracles we've have seen – He must be the traitor! No, they didn't point to Judas because HE APPEARED TO BE ONE OF THEM! So notice something else – casting out demons, performing miracles in His name – DOES NOT SAVE YOU!You cannot WORK into the KINGDOM!

    This is what I wrote previously on another thread but it applies here. So in order to understand difficult passages in Revelation … for example in Revelation 3:5 where it says “and I will never blot his name out of the book of life. I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.” – we really need to understand the entirety of the Bible to fully comprehend what's going on. The Bible discusses many different books throughout the Bible -- not just Revelation. For example, we read in Exodus. Exo 32:11 But Moses implored the LORD his God and said, “O LORD, why does your wrath burn hot against your people, whom you have brought out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand? Exo 32:12 Why should the Egyptians say, ‘With evil intent did he bring them out, to kill them in the mountains and to consume them from the face of the earth’? Turn from your burning anger and relent from this disaster against your people. ... Exo 32:31 So Moses returned to the LORD and said, “Alas, this people has sinned a great sin. They have made for themselves gods of gold. Exo 32:32 But now, if you will forgive their sin—but if not, please blot me out of your book that you have written.” Exo 32:33 But the LORD said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against me, I will blot out of my book." Notice here, that it appears that “everyone is written in the book … and then they are blotted out.” Again in Deuteronomy, Deu 29:20 The LORD will not be willing to forgive him, but rather the anger of the LORD and his jealousy will smoke against that man, and the curses written in this book will settle upon him, and the LORD will blot out his name from under heaven. If you think of it this way ... how could they be blotted out ... if they were never written in ... unless perhaps ... they were written in from the beginning.
