Why are we plagued with so many dogmatic certainties and religious opinions? The ego driven agenda would put these as more important than love and unity. They are things to squabble over rather than coming to any kind of agreement. Is this not carnal?
So I have identified, more or less a few causes for these DC's as follows.
-reactions to the things we hate. (bad experiences)
-self-interest (ambitions and perceived religious assurances)
-drawing wrong conclusions based on quick and rash judgments
-personal dissatisfaction and disaffection with the status quo
Now this trend towards personal opinions or preferences short-circuits any possibility of the mind of Christ coming to the fore. The DC's...
First thought should be ,who is Israel,some people seem to think Israel are just Jew's and no matter what thy will be saved,that's false.Nobody and I mean nobody will be saved just because.
There are two houses Israel AND Judah,who may I remind you at one time were at war with each other.
Now I wanna start this from the beginning
There are two tree's you and I belong to one
Only a Christian can be deceived as the rest of the world already are...
We have discussed better ways to confront people and offer correction in a manner in which a person can actually listen......
I am sitting in a coffee place right now and a father is confronting his daughter about her behavior. He is basically trying to warn her that her behavior is ungodly and will lead to ruin - she is possibly drunk and pretty much rolling her eyes, which is pissing him off. He is invoking God, throwing around scripture, and demonizing every bad decision and danger, real and imagined.
He is sincere and who knows, she might be listening - she isn’t leaving. I can hear the fear in his voice. And the fact that I can hear it is the problem......l
It is not the content of his message or his tone or anything he is doing...
Romans 7:20 (NKJV)
Now if I do what I will not [to do,] it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.
Getting rid of the sin that dwells in us is the purpose of our salvation, that we might walk worthy onto God. This is the newness of life that is for all Christians to walk in in this life. No amount of self will or strength of will will be able to overcome that sin that dwells in us. But thanks be to God He has made another way, righteousness apart from the law has been brought in. Where the works of the law will be fulfilled in us, but not by us. Faith in God, and a ever present desire to overcome this sin is now what is required. A ever present desire towards being made free from sin. This desire added with faith is now...
I have a published a bible study giving details on how to prepare for the great tribulation and second coming of Yeshuah. This is the most exhaustive guide available on the internet in the context of the knowledge of when the year 6000 will be, which is the appointed time of the second coming of Yeshuah, and what the true mark of the beast is, which is paper money and fiat currency. Sadly, this is not information you will find anywhere else, at least that I've seen. Click on this link to be taken to the bible study and share the link with others Preparation and Survival Guide For the Great Tribulation and...
Well I must admit that I never thought this would actually take place, but in a few hours we will be leaving the EU - some will celebrate, others will be depressed........ I think I will be in the first group.
I am sure the transition will bring a few hiccups , and I am sure the press will manipulate and endeavour to stir the pot. The simple truth is that it is only the EU we are leaving, we will still be ' in Europe ' ..............
New beginnings , or perhaps just going back to how it was 47 years ago ......
So @Pearl , @charity - will you be celebrating or feeling sad tonight ?
I find there is no reference to "The Bride Of Christ" anywhere in the bible.
Fourteen times, is the word, "bride," mentioned in the New Testament, only oonce in the Gospel of John, and then 4 more times in Rev. In John, the "bridegroom" is said to be Jesus Christ.
Revelation 21: "And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband." <---Is this to mean that the Jews are the "bride"? And, Christians will be the "guests" at the wedding supper of the Lamb? After all, the Jew's ARE the chosen of God...and I believe it is a Hebrew custom for the Father to choose the wife of their sons...not sure but, it's what I have heard said.
Its not what you know, its who you know, or more importantly in this case who knows you.
Exo_6:3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.
Exo_33:12 And Moses said unto the LORD, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou hast also found grace in my sight.
Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out...
