    Theology is neither here nor there, but have you submitted to God? (poised?)

    Hi there, So it dawned on me recently that what you say is neither here nor there: but what saves! Jesus Himself said "chasing after Me to be the Christ, is nothing to Me" (paraphrase gospels, from memory) that is "when they say 'here is the Christ' or 'the Christ is there', do not go after...

    Jesus is in our midst, on these forums!

    Hi there, Jesus said, "wherever two or three are gathered in My Name, I am there in the midst of them" (gospels, from memory). Well, if we are united around this website, Jesus is united with us! I don't know what else to say, this is just so great! Lord willing, Jesus will be in our midst...

    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...

    Lucifer is herding people to the Cross, without Jesus - will you fight with those around you? (mean?)

    Hi there, So in Revelation it is said that Satan will be let out of the pit, for a little while, to gather the nations to war. But the History of Lucifer is not mentioned. My belief is that Lucifer has already been locked up in the pit 300 AD and has from 1800 AD been released to push the...

    Yahweh, and Yahwehs Word

    Just sharing something to consider, you do not have to accept anything said here as the truth. You should seek truth out for oneself and hold on to the truth that sets you free Yahavah, is the Father. The Word of God, was spoken by the Father. For whatever reason the Father (Yahavah/Yahweh)...

    Question. Not a joke.

    Please take this seriously as I am not simply posting for the fun of it, but I’m truly trying to gain understanding. The Bible says in Hebrews that Jesus was tempted in all the ways we face. My conundrum is how this is a valid statement. I am not discrediting the Wird, but certain things were...

    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...

    We are given this body ("this tent") temporarily, let your light shine through it while you've got it! (bright?)

    Hi there, So I just had a revelation of the importance of the body, while on Earth. As Peter says it is a "tent" (2 Peter 1:14) that we must put off in due time. But why are we given it, for the short time that we are? The point is that we are able to shine a little light, before we enter into...

    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 Fight......

    Make no mistake we are in a battle. It is a fight unto the death. Choosing God we choose life and then our battle becomes a real" spiritual battle" against satan & his forces. How can we be prepared? Ephesians 6 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles...

    Loving Beyond ....Ourselves

    May we all be ever thankful for his love to us. God's love to us; 1.John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” 2. Proverbs 8:17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early...

    The details of Revelation, are still being revealed in the upper levels of Heaven - on Earth we can only look to the Heavens with trepidation (lost?)

    Hi there, So there are many things revealed in Heaven and Jesus promised that this generation would by no means pass away, until all the things He spoke of had come to pass. The difficulty is that all of the things mentioned in Revelation about the world, are still being revealed in the upper...

    Soul dies for soul, that's the soul (selah)

    Hi there, So this is a simple proverb, its not meant to be complicated. The question of which soul dies for which, does complicate it - but only in the sense that the soul can die for soul other than itself. For example the soul can die for the soul of a friend. The soul is still the soul, but...

    Don't just trust this or that scripture, trust the Word *itself* (holy?)

    Hi there, So this is a simple revelation, about the Word of God. Yes, we can trust this or that scripture - "What I say to you I say to everyone: Watch!" or "You shall be perfect as your Father in Heaven is perfect" - that's all well and good. Indeed the Devil will flee even if you resist him...

    How much of your faith, is what has already been established? (adding?)

    Hi there, This is just a simple thought, that we don't need to reinvent the wheel theologically. Something like the separation of Church and State, does not need to come and go - at different times for different reasons: the separation is final, because the separation is functional. Other...

    The Word endures.........

    Matthew 24: 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. John 12:48-50 KJV He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: THE WORD THAT I HAVE SPOKEN, the same shall judge him in the last day.

    You're going to be there, thankyou sincerely (peace?)

    Hi there! So it has dawned on me that, the tribulation I face, will not be forever. Rather, it will be for a time. What is significant about that (time) is that, it does not apply to everyone. From this, it has been revealed to me, that there are some believers with me, who will outlive me. I...

    The Church is under attack, from greater and greater fools (this is a pattern of things to come?)

    Hi there! Well, I'm afraid I have some bad news: fools are here to stay. In the beginning there were very few fools, because God did greater and greater things, as Witness of His Creative Glory. But in the end, there will be a great number of fools, that look very much like gods but being...
