    Premarital sex, resulted in a life handed over to the cruel one (Proverbs 5:9) - now I can't escape? (help?)

    Hi there, So to be frank, I had pre-marital sex and developed a sexual dysfunction (constant desire). My relationship with the person in question, is nowhere. I now don't trust myself and feel very weak about things I should be strong about (the importance of a healthy relationship, God having...

    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)...

    I said, "Father! You be the One to define yourself!" and God started to relate to me! Praise God!

    Hi there, So there has been a bug bear in my mind, for some time: how do you define God? What about God do you share with the world? The answer to those questions is a bit of a trick, because even though there are many answers (from many people, actually), the truth is God can define Himself...

    The Spirit renews the Spirit, how is this possible? (reading scripture?)

    Hi there, So there is a simple concept that you can bring in to play, in your walk with the Lord: the Spirit renews the Spirit, by reading scripture. This is renewal, not revival. Revival comes when we have imparted scripture to others in a sufficient way. The point is, we should be reading the...

    Living under your parents, at home, should be about binding the strongman (ready to fly the coup?)

    Hi there, So Jesus said "no-one plunders the strong man's things, when he is at peace in his house; but first you must bind the strongman and then you can plunder his things" (gospels, from memory). The question is: when do you do this? In one sense, you do this when you come to faith. You...

    "To the weak I became as weak", or how to lose control of how you are perceived - that some might be saved?

    Hi there, I Corinthians 9:22 "To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some." This agrees with the idea that Jesus was made sin, that we might become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21). When we see...

    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...

    We need to be on the front foot, the Devil wants to snare the nations, by provoking their world (angry?)

    Hi there, So I have been watching the Lord, looking to the Heavens and resisting the Devil (as best I can), and I have begun to perceive a pattern in the Devil's attacks. The Devil has made the nations of the world his focus, and wishes to bring them into a snare (that they are not for God)...

    The Great Regret, is coming (unspotted from the World?)

    Hi there, So this is something that Christ did not reveal beforehand, presumably because He did not want to encourage needless doubt. For example, the Great Doubt is coming, in connection with Armageddon, where men will doubt their relationship to God and bring about wind and confusion in the...

    Is it on Saturday, or is it on Sunday... which.... which?

    - SHABBAT... ..... is interesting, because God gave this before "Moses Law" came around. Just like the TITHE. Both pre-existed before Moses, or the Law and Commandments. SHABBAT.....Its a day of rest, that was created for Man. Now, Cults, and Heretics, teach that Man is made for the Shabbat...

    The point is, we know that if we are hot or cold, we are not false, because false at best can only be lukewarm (perceiving?)

    Hi there, So yes, there is a simple calculation you can make on the basis of the choice the Lord gives the Lukewarm Church (Revelation 2). It goes like this: 1) Are you hot or cold? If yes, then you know you have a greater definition than the Lukewarm Church If no, then the question is 2)...

    The life in Jesus, is like a new leaf! (growing?)

    Hi there, So I just realised that the words Jesus spoke about new wineskins - that you don't put new wine into old wineskins - applied to Jesus facing the cross. Jesus didn't try to put the old Jesus on the Cross, but tried to put the new Jesus on the Cross. This is a marvelous thing to me...

    What is the sin, when you are trying to force God's Hand? (conceit?)

    Hi there, So look, the thing is I have a very peculiar relationship to God. I'm of the opinion that God is reserving judgment, until He sees what I am doing and then He is leaving me out of the difference (that I make?). Because I feel nervous, I try to get God to play His Hand, because I feel...

    Just repeat, the faith! (you don't need to reinvent the wheel?)

    Hi there, So I have worked out that: I believe what you do! There is no need to reinvent the wheel. Jesus died once for all, and rose from the dead. The Grace of God abounds in the acceptance within, of what Christ did on the cross. There is no need for a new faith. There is no need for a new...

    Do you not understand that what goes into the body, goes into the stomach, and is eliminated? (Jesus!)

    Hi there, So just taking inspiration from Jesus, it is evident that eating disease does not make us sick. If eating disease made us sick, Jesus would have said "be sure that you do not eat disease, for it will kill you". No! Nothing passing into the body, into the stomach, does anything but get...

    Your Heavenly body is detailed with everything you did in life; everything you didn't want to happen, is forgotten (optimistic?)

    Hi there, So it is true, we are made in the image of God, by inspiration and shaped in the impression of Christ, by spirit - but what about when we reach Heaven? When we reach Heaven, we are given a Heavenly body (scripture confirms this), which is strengthen by resistance. Chief resistance is...

    God is quick, but can He do something, for a long time? (patient?)

    Hi there, So this is a simple thought experiment: God can be quick, but can He do something for a long time? Now, there is quickening in the Holy Spirit, that's true. You can suddenly find you have an ability to do something well, when previously you found it difficult. However, that...

    Jesus preached in Hell, many ways; and Jesus empowered Death, concerning the one truth (model behaviour?)

    Hi there, So when trying to grasp what Jesus did and how He did it, it is a little difficult to know where to start or to what extent. That's because after having descended from the Cross, and committed Himself to the grave, Jesus did something peculiar in Hell and created a work of Death. What...

    You've got to pray for my Nation, the Devil wants to destroy it and the watchmen sleep! (Lord returning?)

    Hi there, So I just wanted to put a word out there, for people to pray for Australia. The Devil wants to destroy this nation, but the Lord won't stand for it. We need to agree with Him, stand and pray, until we reach "touchdown" and God can claim the victory. We are a very young nation...

    More than grafting and pruning, God seeds and fertilizes (Jesus said?)

    Hi there, So there is something interesting thematically in the words of Jesus. Jesus said His Father is "like a gardener" (John 15) that He "prunes". Elsewhere in the Bible it talks about being grafted onto to the natural tree (letters), which we can only assume is the work of God too...
