I have this silly concern and constant worry about my decisions displeasing God. So many of my goals and things I want to do aren’t necessarily Christian based. I like doing things such as watching certain shows that have cussing and sexual content in them....but they are so entertaining....I’ve been told that even the little things I like to do, such as working out, is based on vanity. But I really just love working out because it makes me feel complete. I’m even a little afraid of getting in a relationship because of the fear of feeling something sinful such as lust or immoral thoughts. Back when I was younger, I didn’t mind these things much. But now, I’m at an age where I should know better. I don’t want to live this way anymore. I need to find an inner peace. God Bless.

Welcome!  My advice is to read the book of Romans. (Chapters 11-12 are parenthetical, pertaining to Israel) but we are free in Christ. He will lead you to glory how He sees fit. Blessings. Work out. It’s good for your body, mind and emotions.

      How is everyone? Im brand new on this site...cant figure out how to reply to peoples comments yet haha...
      But ive always been a life long believer, got filled with Holy Spirit in a big way in 2015...
      Always have lived a more criminal type of lifestyle, after I got Immersed by the Holy Spirit, I went deep down, lost it all, home, family, dogs got killed, had a lengthy prison sentence hanging over my head, and even commited some serious acts of violence, stole to eat, and panhandled... it took all that chastising, to make me say, I will never go back to that lifestyle again...
      Now finally within the last 3 to 4 months ive FULLY gave into Being a Follower of the Word, Thank The Most High!
      Now I cld go on all day on How much truly awesome stuff happend that day I got filled with Holy spirit, I was by myself living in a camper doing a Study and was praying allowed, went inside talked to my mom, about a friend that had got shot and killed a day or 2 before, I said I didnt feel it was in His Cards to die like that,, at that moment pure silver appeared out of a card tattoo on my forearm, and I Immediately went into full spirit, and so did my mom, I heard only two things in my head, the sounds of Angels Laughter and a man Yelling HALLELUYAH! My mom, sisters, and dad all witnessed some kind of energy field that surrounded my Body, they said it looked like the kinda Mirage you see off hot black top, I never seen it and never cared to, what I actually felt... just stompped, what they was saying about it haha..
      At the end of the Exp. Everyone in the house fell asleep mid day, and my family dont nap lol...but before I fell asleep, I seen a picture of me(in my mind) kinda busting thru the doors of a church, middle service, disrupting with a authority type thing.
      All that happend in 2015, Ive now recently been given back everything, and better than before! Praise The Most High. 
      Now I didnt understand what that light vision meant at all, at that time,..but its been revealed to me over this last year, I got hit with tons of truths concerning the Bible and the Church as a whole. 
      And I can say its most definitely gonna be "disruptive" to majority of The Church. 
      That is IF they would like to get off the Industrial train(uncomfortable,not meant for human passengers,but you can still reach your destination) and get aboard The train He has Made for human passengers with a comfortable travel all the way home..
      There is really alot of stuff within all this...but one I'd like to touch on first would be Keeping of The Sabbath, Its a very amazing and a sad thing, that very Few Followers actually try to keep the Sabbath,
      #1. Its our Law to do so,
      #2. Man, I clda really used that amazing self discipline my entire life,which is likea auto blessing that is tied to the Sabbath. Haha
      3. The Father Himself sanctified it,made it Holy, and gave it to us as a Gift to his Followers, its a Holy rest he wants us to partake in with him, and its been basically forgotten within the Catholic and Christian churches.
      We know this is a important law were supposed to Keep, even when The Messiah was put in the tomb, no visitors came on Sabbath, bc the law and all laws did and still do to this day remain intact, only changes that was done to The Law was sacrificial and ceremonial, yes that means its still not lawful to eat pork, but were not supposed to condemn anyone about what they do or dont eat, your made perfect thru the Messiah, so what you eat isnt 0f great importance anymore, but it is still The Law to not eat any unclean beast, ive searched every scripture concerning the food ordeal lol imma hungry guy.. and its def. Still apart of the law, Just knowone is to be condemned about it, but make no mistake, its a GOOD thing to not even touch those unclean animals, but if you condemn som1 for eating pork or etc.. your good deed will be turned into a evil one...
      But Sabbath now thats a different story and its something we all should rejoice in together every week from Friday night to saturday night.  And it should be taught to our children, and you should start working on Sundays and Stop working on Saturdays. The word Sabbath means Rest or to cease, Hebrews in new testament explains we should try our utemost to keep that sabbath. 
      If anyone has any questions for me at all, id enjoy digging into all of this, my question would be how is it, all these life long followers are overlooking so much in the word? Another ex. Paul said I believe in Corinthians it was, that while a man is praying or prophsying, He is NOT to cover his head, and if he does cover his head he dishonors The Messiah, and that a woman IS supposed to cover her head while praying and prophsying and if she dosent, then she dishonors Man..says The head of the woman is man, the head of man is The Messiah and The Head of The Messiah is YHWH or The Father.. replaced with The false title the Lord in most versions.

      I thought i would finish the short teaching-message series for you i began 2 Thread's ago, and thank you for reading.
      This will be the 3rd part, regarding the same Topic, which generally speaking is regarding Eternal Security.
      To finish this 3 part, lets look at FAITH.
      First, there is a general misconception many Believers have about Faith, as THE savior.   Which of course is not the case.  Many who are not really  time invested in rightly dividing the word will never be deeply connected to an understanding of God's Amazing Grace, So,.. this type will usually  have a theologically  misguided idea about "faith" being their savior. And because of this, which is probably caused by them believing  misleading teaching that came ither from the pulpit or worse,  too much time spent over years studying theologically unsound bible  commentaries while their BIBLE became a dust magnet.   This  type believer is convinced that Faith saves them, and so, they believe and teach that the born again must hold onto their faith, or otherwise, they lose their salvation as a result of not holding onto it.   = This is not the truth, but a lot of people believe it and teach it.
      So, lets nail something down in your soul so that you can rely on the Truth.
      You are not saved by holding on to anything.  You are saved because GOD is holding on to you thru the Blood of Jesus.
      Now, from the last Thread, you'll recall (if you read it) ....that is  was centered on Philippians 1:6...... "God who began your salvation IN YOU, will  HIMSELF be Faithful to complete it"...= for you.
      So, as this is the case....then what  your faith did, is get God to release His Righteousness unto you.  So, its the Righteousness of Christ that God gives you, thru your BELIEVING, that is now counted as you being "justified by Faith", once and for all, in God's eternal perspective.
      Faith is not the Savior.  GOD is the savior, thru Christ.  And once you gave God your faith, once you BELLIEVED, then God Accepted this and this became your righteousness, that is God's  eternal gift to you,  that gave you the new birth, and put you "in Christ", and "Christ in You".
      God left Heaven, and became one of Us, virgin born,  just to do this for you.  Just to die for you...   Its an eternal Love Gift paid for by the Blood of God Himself, as Jesus on the Cross.
      2 ways to think of Faith would be to consider it the Channel thru which God sent His Righteousness.   Or, you could consider Faith as the transmission device thru which God  imputed His Righteousness into you, and upon you.
      But no matter how you consider faith, it is God who Saves and Faith activated Him to DO IT for you as a GIFT.  "the Gift of Righteousness"...
      THE end result is that you are SAVED. BORN AGAIN.  Heir of God and Joint Heir with Christ.      A completed SALVATION, that is ONLY ONLY ONLY ONLY based on Jesus shedding His blood for you, so that your sin is removed, forgiven, and in its place what was your unrighteousness has now become  Born again YOU as "the Righteousness of Christ".  This is who you are now. You are now "in Christ" because Christ's very righteousness has become your new Eternal Identity.
      Christ is where you are, (in you)  and you are where He is, "in Christ"... forever and ever and ever.    Amen.
      So, here is the end result of your faith.....
      This is so remarkable.
      Look at this wonderful verse.  Hebrews 12:2
      '"Looking unto Jesus  the author and finisher of our faith"
      Look at that.   This is more remarkable Grace.
      As some of  you read in the Thread from yesterday, It is God who starts (in you) and complete for you, your SALVATION..... Philippians 1:6
      So, now , Praise God, you have Jesus Himself who now LITERALLY takes over your faith, within  the Kingdom of God, and FINISHES IT FOR YOU.... 
      You gave God your faith, then God takes this and starts and completes your Salvation, while Christ takes your Faith and FINISHES THIS FOR YOU AS WELL.
      Jesus is the "author" of your faith, by being the one who wrote it, in His blood.  Then He finishes it, by His Resurrection, which is your Redemption and the Blood Atonement.
      When you "Look unto Jesus", you are BELIEVING....in the Gospel.
      To "Look unto" means to place trust in, and to BELIEVE...."unto Salvation".   and then God and Christ take it from there.
      Grace is remarkable.   God's Grace is a GIFT that in all ways totally completes your redemption for you. 
      Its starts with believing the gospel (faith), then God completes your Salvation and Christ "authors" your Faith after you Believe. Its a literal and eternal contract between you God and Christ.  This contract is  literally  written in the Blood of God, as Christ on the Cross.   And this contract is your Salvation, and its a FREE GIFT.
      Isn't all this Amazing?
      Its Amazing GRACE, is what it is... and the more you look at it, the more Amazing it becomes to KNOW.
       
       
      God bless,
       
       
      <B><

      Debp has been posting some informative  (video), recently.
      God bless you sister.
      One of the helpful videos she posted is regarding the church wide, world wide, heresy  : "Lose your salvation".   This heresy can be phrased many ways, including "walking away from God" , "walking away from your faith".  But no matter how you phrase it, the Grace rejecting aim of the people who show up on forums and in pulpits and online , who are teaching this Galatians 1:8 message, is the same.  They Want to indoctrinate you into their harmful theology.
      Now i have a strong and unrelenting point of view about this heresy, because i have seen the damage it causes churches, Christians, and the heretics themselves.   This theology is an extreme spiritual poison. Its an infection of the mind and spiritual condition.  It literally can make you crazy.  Especially if you are a sincere and  true believer who above all things wants to please God.
      The True Believers, if they are caught up in this hellish circular reasoning theology, become  more and more upset and there is NO simple remedy.  See, what happens if you get infected by the people who are spreading this spiritual deceit, is that the bible and the devil begin to work together to condemn you to the point where you will begin to obsess on the idea that you are lost, and hell bound.   The bible becomes a punishing enemy as all it seems to do is show you that you are going to hell.    Ive seen it.  Ive visited the mental health center and witnessed the mind damage and the broken spirit.   This  person,  who has been deeply mentally disturbed by the people who mean to do it,.... they can't open a bible and get any Help.  Prayer life becomes a guilt trip.  They cry  and shake and feel sick.  Their lives become so disrupted by this screaming idea that they have committed the unparsdonable sin, or they have willfully sinned their salvation away.  And all they had to do to be destroyed was show up on a "friendly" Christian Forum and read someone's Thread regarding "losing your salvation".  This particular Thread Topic is reposted constantly on every Christian Forum that will allow it.   And the next thing  this sincere believer  thinks is, "what if i did this".... and then the bottom falls out of their lives as the devil begins to work their minds into worry and fear  to try to  literally destroy them. 
      FYI.  : The Epistle to the Hebrews, is a spiritual bear trap.  Its a book that will tie a novice baby Christian in a knot for life.  This book is so strong, so powerful, that when a novice gets into it, having no sound theology to lean on, no soul anchor of Grace,  no deep understanding of Redemption,..... they will end up for the rest of their life preaching one message.  "you can lose your salvation".   That is what happens to everyone who get lost in the Epistle to the Hebrews, because they never became grounded in GRACE and "Justification by Faith" theology Truth..... BEFORE they jumped into this DEEP DEEP Epistle to the Hebrews.
      Listen Saint, the bible is not  a fun filled novel.  Its a Spiritual Awakening Experience, written as words in Jesus's Blood..  Understand?  And the unclean spirit , Satan, uses the bible to harm you, if he can.  And do you think he can't?   He was here before Adam.  He was looking over Paul's shoulder when Paul was getting his letters out to the Churches.  He sent Muslims their Bible.   He lifted Jesus up by His power and took him to a high place, and showed the Lord of Glory a few things...  Satan is alive, just as certain as Jesus is Risen.   And he is not playing with you.  He wants your LIFE if he can't get your soul, and if he can't get ither because you are born again, then he'll send a heretic into your mind, using a pulpit, a commentary, an online website, a family member, a christian forum..... who will try to make you believe that the Blood of Jesus is actually you keeping yourself saved.    
      Now you think about that.....   They will try to make you believe that the atonement is actually YOU keeping yourself saved,  OR NOT.
      There are 2 Gospels that are preached.  One is From the New Testament,  and one is from the Devil.   The bible preaches that God MADE you righteous and keeps you righteous, HIMSELF, if you will believe in Christ.  This is called being born again.  This is God becoming Jesus the Man, and taking His very righteousness and giving it to you, in place of your sin, and unrighteousness.   This is Redemption.  The Blood Atonement.
      The Devil's gospel teaches that your works make you and keep righteous, your commandment keeping keeps you saved, and your obedience is your Cross that you hang on, to save yourself.
      God's Gospel, is :  "i will save you and keep you saved. ".  using the Blood of Jesus.
      The devil's gospel, is everything else.  And everything else including  the person who is teaching works for salvation...... is Galatians 1:8
      -----------------------------------------------------
      ----------
      Let me talk to you now about Eternal Security.
      Eternal security : is Christ in you.  This is your Eternal Security.    Being Saved once, and always, is Christ in you, who is HIMSELF eternal Security.  Jesus said that He gives you eternal life and you shall never perish . (lose it or be parted from it.) 
      1 John 5:13 tells you that you can KNOW that you have eternal life.   And the way you know is because Jesus who Himself is eternal life, is IN YOU.  "Christ in you, the hope of Glory".  He is in you, and you are in Him .. "in Christ".
      Now, lets get the bullseye on the target.      The heretic will try to convince you that this same Jesus, who is Himself eternal life, is not in you, permanently.  That if you decide to, you can get Him out.  That if you decide to, you can just flip a switch, do a deed and like MAGIC, you are no longer Born again.
      This teaching is a lie.
      Now understand that Jesus is Himself "the resurrection and the (eternal) life.  And if you are born again, you are joined to God, by Christ.  Christ has removed your sin, becoming it for you on the Cross, and that is the only barrier that was keeping you from being joined to God.  So thats gone.   Your sin is gone, because the shed Blood of Jesus washed it away.   The Law is gone, because you are no longer under it, you are under Grace... so the LAW can't judge you as a sinner.    This is  because Jesus Himself, God on The Cross, has been judged for you already and KILLED.  So, that is your Hell, your Lake of Fire, and your Judgement for your sin...  Its gone.  gone......>>GONE.  It can't be your eternal life situation as it is for Christ Rejectors, because your Eternal Life situation is CHRIST THE ETERNAL LIFE, who is INSIDE YOU.      You do recall that your are as a born again Christian, the Temple of God?  The Body of Christ?  You are indwelled by the Holy Spirit, or as the New Testament explains, "if you have not the Spirit of Christ IN YOU, then you don't belong to God".....  So, God, Christ, and The Holy Spirit, who are all "ONE"< are in you., if you are born again.....
      Are you?   Do you remember when you took Jesus into your heart?  Believing on Him.  Trusting in Him to save you, forgive you?   That is your "New Birth", day.   You are born from your mother, and you are born AGAIN = from your Father God.
      In both cases blood was shed.  The first time it was shed for you, you came to earth.   The second time it is shed for you, is the ONLY reason why you go to Heaven.  (Grace is the color and function of Jesus's Blood).
      Born Twice, die once.  if you are a born AGAIN  (2nd time) = Christian.
      ==============================================================
       
      And here is the final answer...  Here is why you can't lose your salvation and go to hell.
      A question or 2 :      WHO is your Salvation?       Who is it?    Who is your eternal life?    Who is your resurrection?   Who is your Justification and your Sanctification?   Who saved you?   Who is Grace?   Who is the Blood Atonement.  Who is Redemption?      Did you say  YOU?    Is it YOU?   So, if its not you, then it must be JESUS THE LORD.   JESUS THE CHRIST.   JESUS Himself.
      He  alone is your Savior, because He alone is everything that saves you, and everything that God requires for you to be saved, and in fact JESUS IS ALL GOD OFFERS YOU TO GET YOU IN TO HEAVEN AND KEEP YOU OUT OF HELL.
      THERE IS NO OTHER WAY TO BE SAVED.   JESUS IS "THE WAY".     AND THAT IS ACCORDING TO GOD.  That is according to TRUTH, and Jesus is "THE TRUTH",  and Im lifting Him up right now , and so should YOU. !
      So, your salvation, is JESUS.   You being born again, proves that HE is IN you.
      Listen....
      Jesus is God, and God is not a man that He should or can, lie.     Jesus said.....>"I will never leave you or forsake you".   Hebrews 13:5 .     Now notice the word "Leave".   This word is explaining that Jesus wont ever do something.   And what is that?    Leave you.    He "can't Leave you, or forsake you".... He said so.   So, does the TRUTH LIE?     Now, back up and look at what we are thinking about....  Where is Jesus?  If you are saved, where Is He?   He is IN YOU.   IN YOU.    IN YOU.   In YOU.    And how is Jesus in you?   He is SEALED within you.  God is SEALED within you.. You are their BODY OF CHRIST....... that is your permanent situation.
      Now get this and you'll be forever spiritually and mentally unaffected by people who want to make you believe that you are your own savior, or that you can end up in Hell, then the lake of fire.
      Notice again that "Jesus said that He will never LEAVE YOU"... What does NEVER mean?   "never".  what does this mean?    Does it mean, as long as you keep your faith, and go to church, and never backslide, or walk away from God?
      Do you see a "unless", in that verse?   Heretics do, and they put it in there to try to harm you.    
       Jesus WILL NEVER LEAVE THE INSIDE OF YOU WHERE HE IS SEALED UNTIL THE DAY OF YOUR REDEMPTION.......because He said so, and the TRUTH does not Lie.   Jesus is THE Truth.
      So, what does this show you, and explain to you, when a heretic is trying to make you believe that you can lose your salvation?
      What is the obvious truth here, Saint?
      The truth shows you that if that were possible, and its not, but if were possible for you to hit the Great White Throne Judgement, and be Judged by God for all your sin that Jesus has already been judged for on Earth.....then when you were sent to Hell, Christ in you, who will NEVER LEAVE YOU< is going to be there burning right with you, in the Lake of Fire.
      Impossible.
      Completely Impossible.
      There is no verse in the New Testament, that has ever even suggested that Jesus and the Holy Spirit, can leave you, or will.   Not one.   NONE.   But there is certainly a crystal clear verse that Says to the born again, that Jesus will NEVER LEAVE YOU.
      Never, Never, Never.
      You can't take Christ to hell, because you can't go where He can't go..  And when those who oppose Grace and cast darkness on the Cross want to make you believe that you can go to hell, then just remember that The Christ in you, who is your proof of your eternal security and IS HIMSELF ETERNAL LIFE, is not  Going to Hell, ...........and neither are you.
