It is a bad thing to think that just because one is not aware of the power of God to work in their life.... To assume the power of God is not available at all...
7 And he brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall.
8 Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged in the wall, behold a door.
9 And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.
10 So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, pourtrayed upon the wall round about.
11 And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and in the...
Hebrews 3:17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?
3:18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?
3:19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
Israel, in the wilderness, was promised a rest. Israel, because of unbelief, did not enter into that rest.
Numbers 14:22 Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice;
14:23 Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it:
Regardless of how Christ's teachings are interpreted-- ritually, literally, or
metaphorically --unless people somehow eat his flesh and drink his blood,
they have no life in them; viz: they are quite dead on the hoof regardless of
their health, age, race, religion, and/or gender.
● John 6:53 . . Amen, Amen, I say to you: unless you eat the flesh of the
Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you.
The kind of life about which the Lord spoke is very unusual to say the least
because it's supernatural.
● John 6:54 . . .Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life,
Eternal life always was, it always is, and it always will be because eternal...

Outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May might be a nice person, kind to cats, etc.
However, as the BBC's political editor Laura Kuenssberg has indicated, Mrs May has presided over an utter disaster for the Conservatives in the latest UK-wide poll, the European Assembly elections:
"The Tories' performance is historically dreadful. This is not just a little embarrassment or hiccup. In these elections the governing party has been completely smashed."
Main parties punished for...
Perfection. And who BUT God is perfect? None. Jesus had to be God Himself, as only God is perfect...in ALL His ways. How could any BUT God incarnate atone for our sins? Anything less would not meet His standard. Jesus was/is perfect as God is perfect.
There is no other way ♥ How could any other than God Himself atone for our sin? Our redemption will only be complete through Gods standard...perfection through Him in the person of The Christ.
I find it interesting that Jesus
A) Told His disciples to buy weapons (Luke 22:36)
B) Told them not to use them (John 18:11)
It's as if God allows his sheepdogs to bear their teeth, but doesn't want them actually biting.
God has allowed me to own guns, and I used them to protect people and myself by showing the attackers my weapon, which always was enough to scare them away (Praise God!). But now God has taken them away and I cannot own them.
As I read Foxes Book of Martyrs, I find it amazing that none of them took up weapons. They had decided beforehand that they would not fight with weapons to save their own lives or even the lives of their loved ones.
It's an interesting subject to me, as I believe we have a right by God's...
I believe that there is and has only ever been one true Church, which is made up only of those who are Born Again believers from whatever church background, or none, worldwide, past present and future. Those who through the revelation of the Holy Spirit have seen Jesus for who he is, recognised what he did, turned from their sin and accepted him into their lives as Lord and Saviour. Anybody who hasn’t taken these steps towards him and made that commitment is not, in my view, part of the Church. And in my experience many church-goers and even clergy fall outside this criterion.
And already in God’s eyes we are spotless; having had our sin washed away in the blood of the sacrificial Lamb we are free from it. We are not though, yet...
Hello, I’m new to posting here. I’m sorry if I’m in the wrong forum. My question is was David lying when he pretended to be insane in front of Abimelech? Psalm 34 is referring to this incident, but verse 14 seems to suggest he wasn’t lying. To me misleading and lying are the same. How do you reconcile this? Thank you
Many people interpreted the scriptures to have different meanings. This is why there are so many different church denominations and doctrines.
Is Christ divided? NO. Is the "SPIRITUAL CHURCH" divided? NO.
Is man's understanding divided? YES. Are church denominations, organized by men, divided? YES.
What is Religion? It is organized groups of people professing certain religious beliefs and having a hierarchy of leadership. The leadership determines their religious beliefs based upon their interpretation of their reference book writings (the Bible or similar book) and doctrine studies.
The Jewish religion consisted of ceremonies and rituals that people performed. The people had faith (trust) that by performing these...
