    "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...

    If you can win a brother, with fewer words: should that be the rule? Or is speaking in many words, proof of the greater love of God? (choice?)

    Hi there, So I have been reading this and that, and discussing whether Churches are hot or cold, and I have come to the conclusion that words themselves can be hot or cold, because they can be few or great. Now how is few or great the same as hot or cold, I hear you ask? In the same sense that...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    The anti-christ rejects "birth", and so is unable to be born again (slavery to sin?)

    Hi there, So I've been thinking about the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit was preparing me for the anti-christ. And the question arose in my mind "why doesn't the anti-christ just come?" (thinking in myself that I am ready to face him) and the Holy Spirit basically said "because he rejects...

    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!

    The cross will be broken, the Holy Spirit's life will gush forth (will you wait for dry land?)

    Hi there, This is the groaning of the Spirit, for the world - just as the love of God was for the world. The Cross will be broken, as the anti-christ leads the Jews away into disbelieving, but the Holy Spirit leads the nations back to the love that was there at the first of Creation. This love...

    The Devil doesn't make sense, can't give direction, but he's *mean* (will the Holy Spirit deliver us?)

    Hi there, So here we are, waging spiritual warfare and what do we find? We find that the Devil makes no sense to God, nor can he give direction. We know he speaks from his own resources (as Jesus said) and that means that his memories are uninspired and his giving direction is too weak to be...

    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...

    The blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, is different for all but the Sinful Arrester (free?)

    Hi there, So there has been some question about the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, from time to time - as people grapple with whether they are beyond forgiveness or not. Some people say "I have blasphemed the Holy Spirit!" but they don't know how or to what extent. Other people give answers like...

    If we do not need to reinvent the faith, what do we do instead of reinventing it? (wait?)

    Hi there, So this is a fairly simple, but genuine question: if we do not need to reinvent the faith, what do we do instead of reinventing it? There is something we all do, in the spirit - which may be different for everyone - so fundamentally, we should be doing that? Right? I think for me...

    The Devil causes us (the brethren) to fight! Can we catch him, in the act? (powerfully?)

    Hi there, So this is not about casting the Devil out of our fellow brothers. This is about just acknowledging that we are tempted, to vilify and provoke and distrust our brothers. It hurts us, our conscience, but we still do it - and its time we called the Devil out on it! I say with boldness...

    The Two Witnesses, were witnesses to the light (the dream of light, the vision of light) (telling?)

    Hi there, So there is a little bit of speculation about who the Two Witnesses were - indeed you are free to ask the Holy Spirit, if you would like - but I thought it might help to just contextualize their ministry a little. The Two Witnesses were witnesses of the Light. There were two angles...

    To be in agreement with the Holy Spirit, you need to pray that your memories be ready and your obedience available (charged?)

    Hi there, So there is a little verse, where Jesus says the Holy Spirit will come to bring all things to remembrance and instruct you in all things. What does this mean? It means that to be ready for the Holy Spirit, we need to be praying for our memories and obedience. If our memories are...

    Jesus is waiting, to praise the Father; be a reason for Jesus, to praise the Father (songful?)

    Hi there! So I have been working at being closer to Jesus and He suddenly revealed to me, what the Joy of Heaven, is to Him. The Joy of Heaven to the Lord, is that He is able to give praise to the Father. Praise He was denied in this life, is now available to Him (to give to the Father). When...
