    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...

    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...

    The first thing that God creates (in the womb) is the *Spirit*, then comes the flesh (remember?)

    Hi there, So we are all children of God, right? And what does that mean, but that we are heirs of spirit? And why? Because we were created as spirit-beings from the very outset and thus understand that all things of God have a spiritual significance. Does this empower us? Yes, but it also...

    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...

    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...

    Why does God allow suffering? Because if you have faith: there is no suffering, that He can't suffer *with* you (pained?)

    Hi there, So it really is a simple truth: when we have faith, God suffers with us (selah). In other words, when we have little faith, God divides our suffering with Him. There is no point, in which God does not suffer while we do, except when the suffering is of the Devil - in that case God...

    Previous generations, have been summarized by us - we *also* will be summarized, by generations that come after us! (looking?)

    Hi there, So Solomon says at length "as it was, so shall it be" (in Ecclesiastes) and Christ Himself says "this generation shall not pass away, until all these things are fulfilled" (gospels, from memory) - what is it, that happens from generation to generation, if we both come to be and...

    How good is a fragment of the Law? Do we justify ourselves more? (true?)

    Hi there, So I just want to introduce a concept, that relates to the Law. The concept is this: if we cannot be condemned without the Law, because we are ignorant of its direction, can we be condemned on the basis of a fragment of that law? The answer is "only by a fragment". Now this is...

    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...

    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 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)...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
