    This is not a real scenario question. A person who walks in the Spirit walks in eternal life....and the presence of God in love joy and peace. There is no questionnaire to fill out. God sees to the conditions for that walk.

    Walking in the Spirit is not theoretical nor rhetorical as so many present it to be. The walk in God's salvation is in power. It is in love. The dimension of the Spirit is love....an eternal love.

    Not a fear of demons or an obsession with evil.

    Love casts out all fear.

    In order to walk in the Spirit, we must repent or we are still walking according to the flesh, yes, no?

    This is not a question pertinent to walking in the Spirit. If God lets you walk in His presence...then that's all you need to know.

    If a person wants to try various techniques to enter in...and try to impress God...then see if it works.

    Of course repentance from the heart is a good start...

    So far, you're batting a big fat zero. I know I'll never waste my time watching another of your non-Biblical videos. I watched part of the one on hell, until I realized you knew absolutely nothing about the subject.

    No Gentile will be in Israel's earthy Kingdom of Heaven.

    The main book for explaining eternal life is the Gospel of John, in which the word "repent" doesn't appear. Repentance simply means changing one's mind. What are we supposed to change our minds about?

    Again, you post in my thread not posting about my original post, trolling, posting off topic.

    You're deceived.
    Hell is eternal punishment, torment or torture in the lake of fire. You likely saw a screencast of me going through several verses about hell.

    Scripture accounts for gentiles being a part of those ruling with Christ's 1000 year reign.

    I explained repentance in my recording in the original post. Your comments indicate you didn't listen to it.

    That should give you a clue....

    Not at all sure of what you are trying to say here as it applies to my post: "In order to walk in the Spirit, we must repent or we are still walking according to the flesh, yes, no?"
    If one has not repented, turned away from their sin toward Jesus they are still walking in the flesh. Is not walking in the flesh sin?

    I apologize. I wish you had explained your personal situation at the start, as you did on the Vibrating Fingers thread. What you said hit deeply at my heart and that doesn't happen nearly as often as it should. I still don't think you know what you're talking about and I disagree, Biblically, with most everything you've said so far. However, if you would reverse things and try to learn from those on the forum, instead of trying to teach, I feel you would be a lot better off.

    God bless, my friend. If you believe Christ died for your sins and then was buried and was resurrected after 3 days, we are certainly brothers in Christ and everything else is secondary. God bless your friend also. If I can do anything to help you with the scriptures, all you need do is ask. I can't help with money, since I am 78, living on SS, and am not much better off than you are.

    That would be "according to the flesh".

    Is it a sin to walk in the weakness of the flesh?

    No easy answer to that.

    Don't assume that very many people at all walk in the power of the Spirit. At most...people are influenced by the Spirit and guided by the Spirit....but always walking in the Spirit?

    This is quite the issue.

    It would need it's own thread.

    Irrelevant. You're far from preaching the gospel. Your behavior in my threads is trolling.

    "according to"/walk in...I think you know what I am saying.
    Never said anything about anybody "always" walking in the Spirit, that would not be possible in this world! The only man who did that was Jesus. And, yes, I would say very few walk ACCORDING to the Spirit. We falter and are weak but, do we continue in sin? NO..we should repent and walk in His Spirit, drawing our strength from Him to continue.
