OK, sorry. I will not do it anymore.

This is probably the simplest solution to the problem.  I generally like your posts, but I didn't know why you singled out certain individuals.  I felt like you were just being friendly, but I can see how they could feel different, especially when they often times don't agree with you.  It could come across like you are in unity with them, and they are making it clear you are not.  If you want to give a shout out to me, that is ok.  I won't be offended.  God bless.

Butero, I for one am not offended but didn't understand the purpose of being singled out.

I'm all for Holiness but it needs to come from a concrete heart, we can shout Holiness with our whole heart but if it doesn't come from a humble he good would it be.

Only the Lord knows our motives for the things we do, if we don't shine our lights and live the Word ,how  can non-believers ever find the truth as it is God working through us . 

If we're Christians and love the Lord we are to  encourage each other with Psalms and Bible verses ,we love people as Christ loves us.

I have  the impression with some posters in Worthy that I'm singled out that I never reach my goal as the Bible tells us to run the race if I'm constantly being put down on what I'm doing wrong?

My hope is in the Lord and not in men, they can judge me all they want but I only live to please God and not men. 

My future is in Him , I'm just a vapor on this earth and I'm only traveling through ,heaven is my home ,my destination :)

The Day of the Lord1 Thess. 5 10-11
…10He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with Him. 11Therefore encourage and build one another up,just as you are already doing.

Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.James 4:14

14 For this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward to a home yet to come. Hebr.13:14

I don't know what others are thinking, but I would never judge you as not being saved or not being right in your heart towards God.  How am I or anyone else qualified to make such judgments?  You come across to me as very sincere and doing your best to serve the Lord.  Again, I have no idea how others see you, but I see you as a sister in Christ.

The proud would resist holiness and flee from it. Because it is impossible for anyone to walk as He did if they are in the flesh.

"But He gives more grace. Therefore He says:

    “God resists the proud,
        But gives grace to the humble.”" - James 4:6

 

This just shows people resistance to holiness and how they are uninterested in pleasing the Lord, in truth.

"These people draw near to Me with their mouth,
    And honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me.
        And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men." - Matthew 15:8-9

 

"For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.
    These are the things which defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man." - Matthew 15:19-20

 

And as a result they stay blind, walking in darkness and always stumbling. And they refuse to submit to the light.

"But if one walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him." - John 11:10

 

And they resist to be cleansed and changed by Him. What is that if not pride?!

"Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar. As it is written:
    “That You may be justified in Your words,
        And may overcome when You are judged.”" - Romans 3:4

That's not true, the other day he 'singled out' four of us in the middle of a thread that some of us were already participating in. Nice try defending His actions though.

I can only tell you I was on a forum where messages were often directed @ so-and-so, though I don't remember seeing this done here before now.....and maybe it was a different format back then, I just don't recall.  I am not sure anyone was trying to single anyone out, not in a bad way.....but anyhow I think I see your point...maybe exhorting type messages aren't really suitable for directing to individuals on a public forum, just due to the nature of exhorting....more suitable to keep it general.

      Here is a simple  Thread concerning ONE always confused "lightning rod" topic(s).....3.) "What is blasphemy of the HS">.  along with 1.) OSAS, and 2.) "losing salvation". And the lack of understanding about these 3 really defines the distinction between legalists, and the born again.  It also exposes the level of New Testament understanding a believer or non, actually has understood, regarding The Blood Atonement and Redemption and Grace.   
      The fact is... if you are not saved, or if you are saved but are religious..(Legalist)  OR.... if you are very self righteous in both cases, then this comes to light very brightly regarding how you will react on Threads that deal with those 3 topics.
      Here is something to know... If you are a deep student of the word of God, then you are a deep student of Paul, of His epistles, =  deep student of the Grace of God.   If you are not a deep student of the word, you will not be familiar with Paul's teaching (Doctrine), and that is why you will have such an issue with understanding that Grace has replaced "works", and that is why so many argue endlessly on Christian Forums, trying to prove that the Grace of God is only as good as you are... regarding you "staying saved".
      Now think about that, and God give you light., if you are one of the many who is trying to keep yourself saved by your lifestyle.
      ---------------------------------------
      Ok, Blasphemy of the HS..     One way to think of it, is simply.... the act of being an  obstacle between a person and them finding the Lord or being born again.    In other words, if you or if anyone somehow creates a situation where someone would be blocked from their pursuit of Salvation.  This is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.   And example would be an Atheist online, on a forum, telling people that God is a myth, Jesus is not risen, and Christianity is a hoax.   If you are over 50, and you remember Peter Jennings,  former anchor of ABC News, or Christopher Hitchens, a famous European Political Analyst... Well, just before both of them died, they decided to pursue , in public, the idea that Jesus is a myth, and Christianity is a Hoax.   And they both died not long after they decide to preach this message of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.   So, its like i tell atheists on forums that are not Christian Forums..   I tell them that until they can prove that God does not exist, then its best to stand back from the pulpit where they are preaching their unbelief against God, in public, as God has shorter patience for this, ive noticed over the years.  "God is not mocked".  "it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God".......and that is a fact, regarding God who is Love.
      The best state of mind and mouth an unbeliever can have, is to think..."well, until i can prove that God does not exist, i will keep an open mind and a closed mouth regarding preaching my unbelief in public.
      I personally, have zero patience and zero tolerance for anyone who claims the names of Jesus, and goes on Christian forums and tries to talk people out of their salvation, by lying to them. And the lie is to tell a born again believer that they can stop being born again, if they behave badly, or dont have enough obedience, works....commandment keeping....etc.    This really galls me,  and fires up my Righteous indignation to the MAX ,  because its a so called "christian" doing the devil's work, on a Christian forum, and this should not be allowed, and i do my best to stomp on it, because its so harmful in its effect on weak Christians who are not grounded in Grace, and fall prey to these mind blinded workers of deceit.    See, i dont think any of you have ever actually tried to help someone who believes they have lost their salvation, because some heretic idiot convinced them, usually by twisting verses in Hebrews, to cause this mental breakdown.  And i mean its a mental breakdown that many born again have and are having., thinking they are lost and going to hell, panicked, living in dreadful FEAR....Dysfunctional human beings....ruined...... when if fact they are saved and are going to heaven.   Ive seen the devastation of real Christians  that is caused by this work of the devil, using a so called "Christian" to achieve it.    And once you have seen this, you'll be a lot more anti-sensitive to these devils who hang out on forums like this one, then you are now.   Real Christian Forums, should have zero tolerance for these heretics.   ZERO.   Their should be a statement of Faith that says....""We do not allow members to harass and try to confuse other members regarding the heresy defined as " losing your salvation".  This is not tolerated.  If you are discovered to be doing it, you will be warned once. If you persist, you will be permanently banned. ""
      ====================================
      Ok, back to the teaching....
      Now, when we want to understand what Jesus is talking about when He is talking to the religious leaders, of His day,  about their blasphemy, then you have to stop right there, and see that this is a specific moment, with Jesus himself being accused of doing His works by the power of the Devil.    So, ask yourself.... who isn't doing this, is who this verse does NOT apply to ???? That would be everyone who was not there at that time.
      Now why would what these Pharisees were saying to and about Jesus, "not be forgiven now or in the world to come"..   and this is KEY..    If you can see this, then you will have a lot of light regarding something very simple that applies across the board to any and all Christ Rejectors..
      Understand that this sin that they were committing by accusing the Lord of being the Devil's tool.......  It isnt this specific sin that Jesus is referring to that would damn them that day, or "In the world to come"...  
      So, what is the sin that Jesus is actually talking about, that is their damnation, as it is the damnation of all who commit it?
      Its the sin of rejecting Christ as Savior.   Its the sin of dying unsaved.  Its Jesus explaining...."If you do not believe that I AM the messiah, then you will die IN YOUR SIN(s)". (Unforgiven)... And this is explained technically and literally in John 3:36, where it says that you dont have to be dead to be damned, and that the judgment of God against your sin, is currently IN PLACE, regarding anybody and everyone who is not born again and is of the age of accountability.
      See a person who is damned, is judged by God as damned, and this is happening as long as they are rejecting Christ, which means, RIGHT NOW....The only thing that changes, is that the final end result is given to them for their Christ Rejection, after they die.   = Hell, then the Lake of Fire.  That is the eternal end result of Christ Rejection, that IS Damnation, that was already their's when they were alive, living and breathing as Christ rejectors.
      So, in the case of these Pharisees, their damnation, was not their accusation, but it was their Christ Rejection...(in this world and in the world to come) ......same as it is for anyone who is lost, and is not a Believer in Yeshua.
      So, they were blaspheming against the Lord, and against the HS< but this is just sin..........However,  their damnation, that Christ is pronouncing against them, is based on their Rejection of Him......Their Unbelief, as its this that is causing their words.  (Heart Unbelief)   So, their words are a reflection of their unbelief, and its their unbelief that has them under God's judgment.   John 3:36
      So, if you are born again. you can't undo your salvation, because its not yours to undo... It is God's who did it for you, because its HIS, that Jesus earned and Gives.
      Salvation is not of you, or me..   We dont do it.   We can't save ourselves, and we can't keep ourselves saved.
      Salvation is what GOD DID, its a Finished Work,  through Christ,  that He APPLIES TO YOU and ME. = Forgiveness of all sin..... No longer holding us accountable for them, in eternity, and does not impute them to us now.   Romans 4:8
      We are SINLESS, as if we never sinned, in God's perspective, because He has given us the Righteousness of Christ, and given our sin to Jesus, our sin bearer, who died for them all.
      And a born again person says....>"but what about this sin".......and the answer is always the same no matter the sin, ... Final Answer:) Jesus died for that one, and all the rest.
      Every sin, all sinning, has already been paid for by Jesus's sacrifice on the Cross, = His death.
      "but what if i".... = ALREADY Paid for, on the Cross.
      "but what if i".. = ALREADY Paid for, on the Cross.
      "but what about this sin, its a fancy one, its rare".... = ALREADY PAID FOR, ON THE CROSS.
      "SIN", ALL OF IT... has been dealt with on the Cross, and you are now a SAINT of God, a Child of God, and this for eternity, even tho you are not perfect.   See, Jesus IS perfect, and His sacrifice was perfect, and God accepted His sacrifice, to accept you because of it.
      God does not accept you because of YOU.....WHO ARE YOU?   Who am I?     Understand.....God  ONLY accepted you, and accepts you still, and always will, if you are born again, =  because of the Cross.
      The blood and death of Jesus <> ALONE<>  made you acceptable to God and keeps you acceptable to God.

      In the Bible, the snake is usually a symbol of Satan, evil, and sin. However, in John 3:14-15, Jesus compared Himself to the bronze serpent that Moses hung in the wilderness. In fact, God used the snake symbol multiple times with Moses, and each experience reveals something about Jesus. This video looks at three of those experiences, and the amazing things that one can learn from these living parables.

      Is "Son of God" a really best Christian Movie of 2018? that describes the life of Jesus Christ according to The Bible and the principles of Christianity.

      John 6: 51
      Lets look at this verse, as its a wonder...  John 6:51.   Jesus speaking...." I AM < (God) the living bread which came down from heaven;.. and if ANY man eat of this bread, he (they, you, me) live forever: and the bread that i will give is my flesh....which i will GIVE (salvation is a free Gift), for the LIFE of the world.. = "give for the life of the world"
      Jesus speaking :  "I AM (notice that He uses this title a lot when talking about Himself, as this is God referring to Himself as "The Great I Am").  So, Yeshua is constantly reminding us that He is not just the "Son" ,  He is indeed and literally God Himself who is the One manifested in a human body .. 1st Timothy 3:16.    And notice that this verse im about to talk to you about relates specifically to  John 3:16.   And notice that God manifested in the flesh is 1 Timother 3:16.  And if you read John 3:16, you see how neatly and perfectly God is drawing a Divine String through His word, in these verses and many more..... always connecting the dots, always placing interesting CLUES and "light bulb" moments in His word for any and all who "study to show yourself approved"...
      Now, 
      How to see this verse's main point using scripture to explain it.    There is the spiritual way and means to understand all NT verses.   In that you compare scripture with scripture...   You use the Word to explain itself..  The word teaches you the word..  And the way God has implemented this is that He does not always or even often use a verse, followed by a verse, followed by a verse, in some type of continuing consecutive order, to explain a doctrine, etc..  No.  What He does is put it all in a circle that you have to study to find and thus understand.  In other words, He has created the NT to be a sort of spiritual puzzle and you are to SEE the Light more and more as you connect the pieces.  And these pieces are scattered, as in a circle that is all over the NT.    For example, you might discover a piece of doctrinal Light in one verse in Romans, and then later, in Jude, or in John you'll SEE another piece that connects, and then in Acts there is another piece that connects, and this is always how you "study"... Its by a lot of reading that God will show your inner- man all these pieces that keep connecting and connecting as you go through the word, again and again.
      So, lets look at this verse in a few parts so that we can see .......
      1. "If any man EAT of this Bread".       And what is the Bread?  and how do you eat it?   Well, the "bread" of course is the body of Christ on the Cross.   And symbolically its a part of Communion...   Now, here we go....  Remember that Christ said... "Man shall not live by bread alone"?...... hummmm..  "but by every word that proceedeth from the mouth of God"....   So, isn't that interesting?    And how does that work, within the context of this verse?   Well, how do you eat the body of Christ so that you (have eternal life)  become born again?    As in this verse the "eating" says that if you do it, you shall "live forever"..    So how do you do this?    Simple.  the "eating" that allows God to give you "life forever", which is eternal life, is to have Faith in Christ.   To Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved....(born again)    And so all this is explained by this verse..... John 6:47. : Jesus says unto you, All that BELIEVE IN ME, = HAVE Eternal life"...     So, you have this verse that says to eat the Bread who came down from Heaven which if you do, imparts a consequence..  And to eat Him, the "bread",= Jesus..... means to have Faith, to BELIEVE, (Having faith is spiritually eating) and by this spiritual eating, you then become born again, which means you "live forever"..    And why?   Because the One who is Eternal Life, the one you just ate, (believed on) (Faith), is now in you and you are "in Christ", so, because you have Him, you have Eternal Life, as He IS, eternal life.  1 John 5: 11-13.    Read it.
      2. "give for the LIFE of the World".       This is interesting, because now this verse is speaking universally, with a condition, regarding giving  Eternal Life to the "world".   And here we understand that Salvation, The Blood Atonement, is Jesus dying for the "world".  John 3:16  This means, the world of humanity, for all time, and especially subsequent to the lifting of the Cross and the bodily resurrection of The Christ.    
      "I came so that you can have LIFE"...   And who is  "you"?   = All that eat the Bread. (Faith), and what is the "life"?  =  Eternal Life, who IS Jesus, and when you have Him, its because you have eaten Him, (Faith), and now you are "in Christ", and Christ is "in you, the <>hope of Glory"<>", = This phrase, "hope of Glory"... is a true understanding of  the One who is our Heavenly Hope, who IS our Eternal Life, living inside us, who is going to bring us to Heaven, because Jesus IS the/our "Resurrection and the Life".
      So, in John 6:51, we see that to eat the bread that imparts eternal life, simply means to "believe on the Lord, and you shall be saved", with its symbolic counterpart being taking Communion.  And we see that this verse is speaking specifically and universally regarding the One who said, "I am the resurrection and the life", and "i came to give LIFE (eternal life) and that more abundantly"... to all of the world, with the condition being, that this gift of the One who Himself is Eternal life, has to be "eaten".....that is to say, believed on, = by Faith.   So that is the eternal result for us, if we do what the verse tells us to do, with  the opposite and dire consequence of you not believing or eating Him, who is the Bread of Life, is that "if you do not (eat) believe that I AM He, then you will die in your sin(s)",...... And also said in John 3:36, = that God's judgment and wrath is waiting to be delivered as an eternal sentence to ALL who lived and died and never ate the Living Bread, = died a Christ rejector and WILL face God unforgiven.  This is damnation. This is Eternal, and its a FREEWILL choice that someone makes that God accepts.   And this reader, is why a person who ends up in Hell and the Lake of Fire, can never honestly or accurately accuse God of sending them there, as all God does, is accept your FREEWILL choice, and from there, your choice while you were living decided where you ended up, after you Died.
      Choose wisely if you are reading this, and are not yet a believer in Christ.
      Trust in Christ today, believe on Jesus today in your heart, kneel at the Cross today, and later meet God as your Loving Father and not as your Eternal Judge.
