    If God can strike the Shepherd and have the sheep scattered, the Sheep-dog can unite the sheep and not be phased by the Devil's attacks? (choice?)

    Hi there, So Jesus quoted a verse from the old testament to His disciples (gospels) "I will strike the Shepherd and the sheep will be scattered", but what you may not have considered, is that this can be reinterpreted from a different angle. Test this in the Holy Spirit and see if it makes...

    It is important not to try to take territory from the anti-christ - just as God does not use the chisel to sever the wood from the lathe (center?)

    Hi there, So in respect of the anti-christ, what believers typically do is locate some verse in the Bible that says "this is who he is" as if knowing who he is is a defence against him encroaching on the world. The problem comes when we try to inhabit the same world as the anti-christ. If we...

    Help! I've worked out how to corrupt the world, but I don't want them to know how to make things worse? (angry?)

    Hi there, So I've worked out, through careful attention to what the world values, two areas where the world could be more corrupt but is not. But I don't want to let on! I would rather go to my grave with my secret, than be responsible for the world's decay and corruption. It's like working out...

    The rapture has already started (on Earth). Paul Washer, the first of the faithful to be raptured to Christ (still?)

    Hi there, I believe the Rapture has reached Earth. I previously had a dream of my grandmother being raptured to the Lord, but didn't know what it meant. Now however, I looked in the Holy Spirit where Paul Washer was and I couldn't see him! He is waiting for the Church to join Christ, in the...

    Here's another likeable thread: what is it, that you want the Holy Spirit to take from Christ and give to you the most? (thinking?)

    Hi there, So this is really going to inspire me, I'm sure of it: what is it, that you want for the Holy Spirit to take from Christ and give to you, the most? It could be anything; I don't want to prejudice the answers here - but I know there will be hot and cold answers (hopefully more cold)...

    Destroy the old world! Establish the new, with the words of Jesus! (daring?)

    Hi there, So basically, we need to be proclaiming. "Proclaiming what?" you ask. Proclaiming the old world dead, proclaiming the new world, alive in Jesus! The Holy Spirit will speak up for us, as long as we are proclaiming God's Word. Jesus escaped the old world, and without Him it can do...

    What was Jesus going to do, before He became focused on saving us (from sin)?

    Hi there, So I am just wondering, if Jesus was inspired to make His life a sacrifice, what would He have done, if we hadn't needed saving? I'm not saying we didn't need saving, but was saving in preference to something else? Like would He have dedicated His life to building the Temple? Or would...

    Please pray for people who are unequally yoked - your faith comes easy and lightly, but theirs is like a sea of doubt (testing?)

    Hi there, So I will be blunt, I have been unequally yoked. It was a fleeting thing, but I have had dysfunction ever since. It occurred to me that their might be other people like me, struggling with being unequally yoked. I think it would be a good thing, for the Church to pray - since the...

    Jesus said "pray!" but people aren't praying! If they did, they would pray what He asked... let's pray! (heartfelt?)

    Hi there, So Jesus plainly said "pray that you be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass and to stand before the Son of Man" (gospels, from memory). But are people praying that? I don't think so! Not continually anyway. This is serious! This is life-changing! Stand...

    Is it just me, or does artificially intelligent "art" provoke suicidal thoughts? (soullessness?)

    Hi there, So whenever I look at artificially intelligent art, I get suicidal thoughts. It's something to do with the "art" having no soul behind it? What are your thoughts? Is it too much? Please!

    Is the anti-christ, the son of the false prophet? (link?)

    Hi there, So this has been annoying me for some time: when is the anti-christ going to appear? The thing is, if you need to know when he is going to appear, you need to know with what power? Why? Because once the anti-christ is there, there will be a struggle over that power. Now, I know this...

    God shortens the Days, but He prolongs the Moment (need time?)

    Hi there, So this is actually a very simple thing, that is reflected in John 1:1. John 1:1 says "in the beginning was the word, and the word was God and the word was with God". What's happening here, from God's perspective? What is happening is that time is slowing down: the word is introduced...

    If you keep the faith, throughout life - you will have a chance to restore, that which sin would have destroyed (had you not believed) (expecting?)

    Hi there, So post coming to the realisation that even having fallen away from the faith, I still had an opportunity to get a second wind (renewed faith), I started to wonder what it would have been like, if I had never fallen away. What I learned from the Holy Spirit, was that even if I had not...

    How much of your faith, is what has already been established? (adding?)

    Hi there, This is just a simple thought, that we don't need to reinvent the wheel theologically. Something like the separation of Church and State, does not need to come and go - at different times for different reasons: the separation is final, because the separation is functional. Other...

    I was trying to concentrate and myna birds were making it impossible, but God stepped in to defend me!

    Hi there, So this is just a simple praise: I was concentrating on receiving calls (volunteering work) and I was getting distracted by myna birds (if you know them, they are quite the pest - constant almost monotone noise). I got to the point where I couldn't concentrate at all and started to...

    Death is wise, in the eyes of the Law (prudent?)

    Hi there, So there is a simple proverb to learn, when it comes to death and the Law: What does this mean? It means that when you do wrong, there is a standard - of the difference between life and death - that ought to be heeded. For when you weigh the Law, it ought to be done with compassion...

    What was the gift you received, when you first believed? (mine was 'steadfastness'?)

    Hi there, So just to help you in your walk with Christ, a simple question: what was the spiritual gift you received, when you first believed? If you need to, pray to the Holy Spirit, that He reveal it - that way, you will have it between you and Him! It is bearing fruit with this gift, that...

    All life is sanctific; and our sanctity is made strong in God's sanctity (holy?)

    Hi there, So I have coined the idea that "all life is sanctific" (sacrosanct, holy) meaning all life has value that is intrinsic to being alive. It is our sanctity that establishes our soul and our soul that feeds on our sanctity. Jesus was the most sanctified of any of us, and He imparted His...

    There is a split: the world thinks the world is the end, the Church thinks the end is within (how to settle?)

    Hi there, So we have a bit of a problem: the world thinks the world is the end (or at least part of it), the Church thinks the end is within (either in Heaven or on the way to it). What can we do about these two alternatives? Certainly the world being the end, appears rational, at least at...

    The Church is under attack, from greater and greater fools (this is a pattern of things to come?)

    Hi there! Well, I'm afraid I have some bad news: fools are here to stay. In the beginning there were very few fools, because God did greater and greater things, as Witness of His Creative Glory. But in the end, there will be a great number of fools, that look very much like gods but being...
