    Jesus said "the day is coming when you will worship in spirit and in truth", if you can be beheaded for faith in truth, you can be in spirit (yes?)

    Hi there, So this is directly out of Revelation 20:4 and I am not twisting the words there, but giving them an expanded context. Revelation clearly says that only those that are beheaded for their faith, come to life again (during the reign of Christ). What it does not say, is whether this is...

    Just curious.....

    I am wondering about ppl that have an expectation from others for financial support and how God expects his stewards to handle possessions wisely in their giving. Now, I do know there are the poor of the world, that either bc of addiction, mental illness, some horrible misfortune, or even...

    After the Rapture, comes revival of the Rapture (think?)

    Hi there, So I feel like this is a simple point to make, but perhaps there is more to it: after the Rapture, comes revivals of the Rapture. This is something even a child (who has come to maturity) could understand. The purpose of the Rapture is not to come and go and never come again. Rather...

    I am itching, Lord have mercy

    Hi there, Ok so this is something that I am struggling with, but I am almost completely certain that it will be of relevance to others, if not of faith then of the world: I am itching. I am itching to get recognition, I am itching to get prophetic vision, I am itching to have power to heal, I...

    If you know that you are not going to commit a particular sin any more, you can move on to works that justify your innocence in that regard (selah)

    Hi there! So as Jesus said "Wisdom is justified by her children" and there is the child who is faithful and the child who is diligent. Now having been faithful, there is always the temptation to sin and sin gets in the way of diligence, but if you have acknowledged your conscience that what you...

    Physical addiction: two metaphors about proper physical conduct (as concerns desire).

    Hi there! So after a little discussion with the staff at this site, it has been decided that if I can keep the dialogue clean, instruction in self-care (physically) is permissible. Now I can't tell you in detail, how it is that you should care for yourself, but I can point out wisdom, that...

    When the Devil doesn't know, which way you'll go: you become the first enemy (selah). Discuss.

    Hi there, So this is a simple bit of wisdom, that I just want to tease apart a little, and see what it means: The Lord struggled with this, always telling people not to talk about Him, asking His Disciples to wait for His resurrection before they told people about what they had seen (from...

    Wisdom

    GRACE ... is more than unmerited favor!

    "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast." Eph. 3:8-9 I was taught that Grace was God's "unmerited favor" towards mankind. But it is much more than that! Grace is the core theme of the New...

    Christ Divinity Explained in John 1:1c

    Jesus even admitted of coming from the gods whom the word of God came! Jesus answered them: “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I said: “You are gods”’?  If he called ‘gods’ those against whom the word of God came—and yet the scripture cannot be nullified— do you say to me whom the Father...

    The eternal gospel (everlasting gospel)

    I've been referring to the eternal gospel in my posts, but that's a misnomer in regard to scripture, which calls it the "everlasting gospel", given that it is understood and proclaimed at the end of this age and the beginning of the millennial reign of Christ. It's been true from the foundation...

    He grows in wisdom?

    If he is God, then how could he grow in wisdom? If he is a being who existed before the world, how could he grow in wisdom? Does it not speak for the fact that the Son of God began to exist when he was born?

    How the Old and New Testament books fit together

    The New Testament is a legal document that, as such there should be an abstract, a brief statement that contains the most important points of a long legal document or of several related legal papers. It is like the skeleton to the body. That document would be invaluable in understanding how all...
