“Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh, And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and you shall keep my judgments, and do them”—Ezekiel 36: 25-27
A few months back, when the light of the above scriptures and other scriptures entered my spirit, I went about declaring—I am through with sin all my life.
I declared it to my best friend. To my sister in-laws that came...
The shed blood of Jesus is everything that matters
22 And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission.
NKJV --- NOTE: remission = forgiveness, pardon, cancellation of debt, etc.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
NKJV --- NOTE: all of mankind’s iniquities (sins) were laid on Jesus at the cross.
When Jesus shed His blood on the cross all the iniquities (sins) of the world were cancelled, pardoned, forgiven, atoned for, paid for.
Agree or disagree?
To any evolutionists who are here;
If evolution were true, and animals changed and adapted according to survival in the elements, why would they leave their fur and feathers, which provide much better for them then the bare skin of man?
And, where did the shame come from in being naked in front of others? Animals don't have it.
I have been saying that the only thing that condemns a person in this world is un-belief. Jesus paid (attoned) for all the sins of the world when He shed His blood on the cross. Everyone who believes He did are saved.
In the following verses where it says He takes away the sin of the world means exacly that, the whole world. That means all sin has been attoned for by His blood. It makes me wonder why the preachers and teachers are so intent on not sinning and never say that all sins were attoned for. See John 3:18 below.
29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

Adam was created innocent in the presence of God and good while knowing no evil. When Adam sinned (and when we sin), we know evil in our minds and desire evil in our hearts thereby turning away from God and good.
We, on the other hand, are born innocent in the presence of man and evil while knowing nothing of God and good. When we sin, we know evil in our minds and desire evil in our hearts (very important).
Now when Adam or we come to God, we...
As they stand on the New Earth they will see two other stars orbiting plus a third far out in our solar system a total of four. The colors will be beautiful and full of splendor. The other planets also will stand in their beauty also being inhabited. God will take man He created even the seed of Jacob and place them their. And they will grow even a child will yet be 100 years old yet not grown, man will live 1000's of years old. And the Spirit of God will live with them. No more wars, the animals will be nice, they will build and all will know the Great Spirit and His works. The old earth has past away and will not come into mind. The New Earth will ever be before the Lord and not pass away. The Tree of life will always be their for all...
[SIZE=medium]Greetings my fellow Christian brothers and sisters,
I love to speak the truth and I have very serious questions that I think many believers would like to know the answer to. Can you tell me please why does God's word promise so much and yet fulfils so very little to nothing in the lives of many devout Christians, in terms of, for example: long life, health, peace, joy and happiness, etc? Instead, I've seen many atheists who live very healthy, prosperous and happy lives and they obviously don't believe in keeping God's commandments. Doesn't the Bible lose credibility in this way? Isn't this part of the reason why many people don't take God, His commandments or the Bible...
I believe that the churches are seven... In which each congregation has it's hits and misses....
Ephesus - Apostolic - Beginning with the Apostle of the Circumcision, Peter
Smyrna - Martyr - Beginning with the Apostle of the Un-Circumcision, Paul
Pergamos - Orthodox... Pergos is a tower... Needed in the dark ages
Thyatira - Catholic - The spirit of Jezebel is to control and to dominate.
Sardis - Protestant - A sardius is a gem - elegant yet hard and rigid
Philadelphia - Wesleyism - To be sanctioned is to acquire it with love.
Laodicea - Materialistic - Rich and increased with goods and have need of nothing?
I saw my mother and grandmother in the last 15 years through their time of...
