    You use your Heavenly body to work; if you don't work, you fall to Earth - not that falling to Earth doesn't give you rest, but it doesn't empower you

    Hi there, So from the title of this thread, you should already be able to work out that they purpose in Heaven is to empower. The joy you get from serving the Lord, is from serving, and while waiting on the Lord serves, the Lord is not always there. If the Lord is not there, you need to be...

    Give : to the poor

    - Reader, God is a Giver. So should we. In fact, part of the reason that "God gives us the power to get/make wealth".. is because when you have some money, you can give some money. And a person who has no experience with this.. .who is stingy, greedy, selfish, carnal... will say.....well...

    God is Love : All the Time.

    Many believers do not enjoy their Christianity as they should because they have a misunderstanding of God, regarding how to deal with Him, and regarding how He deals with them.....you. There are many born again Saints whose entire idea of fellowship with God is not friendship, is not a love...

    1 Corinthians 1:30 - #2

    - Jesus is our (entire) Sanctification. (KJV) : 1 Corinthians 1:30 God Himself is "faithful" to complete your Salvation. Philippians 1:6 Do you have Christ in you? ...Are you born again? Have you become "The Temple of the Holy Spirit"? So, when we are "In Christ", we are as spiritually...

    Hypocrisy! Sometimes I want the time to pass quickly, other times slowly, but I always want to be myself! Pray that I get my head straight! (love?)

    Hi there, So there is a bit of a problem with my faith: sometimes I want the time to pass quickly, sometimes I want the time to pass slowly, but I always want to be myself! If I am always myself, how can I have the time pass both slowly and quickly? I need prayer! I don't think I am alone in...

    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...

    Prayer request : For 2 Pagans

    Hello Believers.. Ive known of Steve and Jenny, for about 8 yrs, and have corresponded with them., tho very very casually. They are both devout "Euro-Pagans". True : "earth worshipers". Steve is an advanced Minister "Priest' regarding Paganism, as found in much of Europe, currently. Jenny...

    Every faith is softened, every past is a little blocked (ready handed?)

    Hi there, So I wanted to talk a little briefly about faith and the past. The thing we know about faith, is that it is incredibly, incredibly strong. If I have faith, I can move a mountain, as Jesus said. On the other hand, we learn that God can harden the heart of people without faith. Take...

    I declare myself to be a "Divi-Christian", as in I share a little divinity with Christ in His Grace (selah)

    Hi there, So there are a few ways of interpreting how I identify with Christ. On the one hand, I identify "divisionally" with other divisions of Christ - "divi" being short for division. On the other hand, I identify this division of Christ as divine - "divi" for divine - that is, sharing in...

    A lot of God's Will is preventative - "if they build the tower of Babel, there is nothing they won't be able to do" (Gen 11:6)

    Hi there, So there are times when God's prevention is obvious: the people of Noah's day, Sodom and Gomorrah, Achan. But a lot of times God's prevention is a lot more subtle: if you had got on that plane you'd be dead, Joseph fed his family during famine, if you hadn't been schizophrenic you...

    The world cycles through happy times and sad times, is this spitting in the wind? (Solomon?)

    Hi there, So, just like El Nino and La Nina, there is a pattern of behaviour throughout the world. This pattern, at its peak is greatly shared happiness and at its trough is privately withheld sadness. This is our humanity. The same is true of our relationship with the Lord: sometimes we are...

    "There make ready" - does faith in Jesus mean everything is provided for? Or do you still need to bring what He commands together? (free?)

    Hi there, So this is a little like a gestalt, where you look at something one way and then you look again and see it another way. The thing I am talking about seeing is the furnished upper room. Jesus said "“Go into the city, and a man carrying a jug of water will meet you. Follow him, and...

    God suffers more with us, than we can suffer on our own - but He does it anyway! (heartfelt?)

    Hi there, So it is just out of love that I want to say this: suffering in God, comes at a far higher price, than we pay for on our own. This doesn't deter God, He is happy to share our suffering with us - until we find comfort. That so great a God would come down to our level, and be a part of...

    If you love the Church, no matter what: your resurrection will mean to you the most that it can do (hoping?)

    Hi there, So, just a simple thought for you to consider: if you love the Church no matter what, your resurrection will mean the most that it can do. In other words, you will have the essence of a perfect life. A perfect life can reach anywhere, do anything, center however it desires. All these...

    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...

    Understanding : Acts 2:38

    Reader, There are some who teach that the "Gospel" is : Acts 2:38. Now, if you are familiar with Christianity, then you know that everyone is invited to become a Christian......Jews, Gentiles,......... >"The World"... = John 3:16. So, one of the things we find out about the NT, is... = if an...

    Sons of the Kingdom will be born to the nations that remain in the Middle East, when Israel is removed (visiting?)

    Hi there, So this is a hard concept to grasp, because many of you will not be familiar with the concept of "Sons of the Kingdom", nor "Israel removed from the Middle East". Jesus says the kingdom is within you (gospels, from memory), and from that we are able to understand that sons are born to...

    Get your head around this! God started with nothing, and in the end, there will be more nothing than He started with (blank?)

    Hi there, So this is just one of those novel concepts, that reflects the wisdom of God found in Ecclesiastes. Ecclesiastes (from memory) says "as it was in the beginning, so it will be in the end". This includes what God started with (the "nothing" that God started with). God started with...

    Soul Winning

    Here is why people do not believe in Jesus, right now.. Here is why UNBELIEVERS exist, right now.. who have never been born again.. A.) "in whom (that person) the god of this world has BLINDED THEIR MIND... as otherwise the Light of the Glorious Gospel of Christ would shine into them".. and...

    I'm praying that the Holy Spirit would come to my Church (joining?)

    Hi there, So I have to confess, that I actually saw the Holy Spirit come to my Church - but I didn't recognise Him until after He had left. Sorry. Now I am begging God that He come back, so that I can talk with Him (learn from Him). I figure the best thing I can do, is pray that He comes back...
