    Knowing God exists, positively with no doubt whatsoever.

    In the search for God there has to be a way to be absolutely positive that He is real and He exists. We have faith in the truth of the fact that He does in fact exist. Though we can not see Him how can we know our faith is based in facts and not a fancy of our minds or cleverly devised fables.

    ~~~By righteousness~~~

    By asking the simple question;

    Does righteousness exist?

    Than asking the simple question;

    Does righteousness need to be sought after?

    For a person, believer or unbeliever to be absolutely sure that God exists all the have to do is do righteousness in all they do. For if one does righteousness in all they do, the first person they will run smack dab into is God Himself. For God Himself has said;

    John 7:17 (NKJV)
    "If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or [whether] I speak on My own [authority.]

    For God waits in righteousness to bless those willing to walk in righteousness for God’s will is always righteousness. So doing righteousness in all things is doing God’s will in all things.

    For righteousness and being willing to do righteousness in all things is the action that brings the proof of God’s existence to the front of every heart that would be willing to do righteousness.

    Those that aren’t willing to do righteousness in all things aren’t really searching for God Himself but for the gifts or the good things they want out of life.

    For searching and finding God Himself is the only thing that will bring the heart of man to rest for, there’s a God shaped hole that only He can fill and the human heart can never be at rest till it finds its Savior for that is why it was created.

    Blessings,

    Much love in Christ, Not me

    That's it. And if we need to be asked if we want Him, the proof is in the pudding that we are not searching for God Himself. But settling for 'other' than All of Him.
    Lord, help me.

    Good also to remember Hebrews 11.6: "He that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him".

    Core. I ask myself WHY it is that you can never be part "of" something.
    Why can't you just -'post and speak from your heart'?

    Why do you have to rely on what other people say in video's!!!
    Why do you always in your posts , direct the reader to yourself?
    You never , as it were, "stand behind the cross" and direct the reads to the Lord.

    If you feel that what you post here is "ministering" ...I can tell you , you are not the only minister and leader here on this site.

    Many, many of the members who post here are still active ministry.

    Lighten up, and start having a heart for the people...and act as if you 'give a rip' about them, then maybe you'd get the attention that you try for.

    =======
    So very sorry @Not me ... I didn't mean to hijack your thread. :oops:
    I'm glad we said "hello" in your welcome thread.

    Good OP.
    Maybe you are too young to remember, but back in the 70's we had a well worn phrase- " I know, that I know, that I know." YES!!

    1 John 5
    13 "These things have I written unto you that believe on the Name of the Son of God, that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. "

    I have to agree with @"ByGrace" here Core. It is not that many of your videos don't rock, cause they do! And, I have read some of your blog as well as watched parts of the videos. But...I also spend allot of time on YouTube videos within the things that interest me at any given time. It would be nice if you could connect on a more spiritual/personal level with people on here? Do you believe in the power of prayer? I think ya do, lol. Well..we have a group conversation going on with a few ladies and a gentleman and the convo is titled "Prayer Corner". We ladies, and one gent, :) love to pray for those of us on here needing to see God move in their lives; loss, affliction, struggles, salvation, healing...we pray for us on here in general but, we also like to pray for specifics.
    All in His Name!

    Then you're asking yourself the wrong question.

    Conforming to be accepted is not what the Bible teaches.

    But I am accepted in part of something, the church.

    I don't rely on videos or printed material.

    But when they present what I believe in a manner that is attractive and encourages others to read or listen, what is the problem with that?

    Who are you to judge if I'm standing behind the cross or not. Especially when you defend cults and cult members most assuredly do not.

    I have a heart, but remember what the Bible says.

    Im sorry if my post sounded condemning...I was trying to appeal to the better-part of him.

    We know and have seen him post some good things , with wisdom.
    Something just seems to have got lost these last few weeks, and all we get now is sterile stuff without the essence of Core 'himself' within them. :(

    I was just trying to draw that back out of him...as we know that he has it.


    Now...

    God tells us to do more than pray.

    He also tells us to not go long just to get along.

    The prophets and martyrs died because they refused to do what you are asking.

    As with concerning the sick. The Bible teaches us to go to the elders and have them pray over us. Then go to your doctor.

    It is a one or the other when it comes to spiritual versus actions in this world. It is both.

    As with the seven churches of Revelation. It doesn't praise love them accommodation for error, it condemns it.

    Whatever you say Core.
    I just know that you could add more to this Site than just video's.

    *I was trying to appeal to the deeper-inner-man that I know is there.

    But never mind...forget it...I will opt out of trying to communicate with you.:oops:

    Over and out...H

    Okay, I understand.
    BTW - "But I am accepted in part of something, the church." We ARE the Church, errors and all. Do we browbeat or do we ask direction from God on how to handle these things in kindness and humility? I'm here mostly for fellowship and, I have gotten that in spades ♥ And, of course I've learned many things, and things that have me thinking differently on concerning scripture. Anyhow..."be joyful in the Lord always..."

    Correction and rebuking is not browbeating. It is telling them the truth in hopes they will see and come to the truth.

    What you are citing is directions for handling someone in the local congregation. It is not how to handle those staunchly embedded in error.

    In fact the Bible says those staunchly embedded to error are to be kicked out.

    Thank you for sharing your relationship with Christ with me.

    Blessings,

    No worries ByGrace.

    God is drawing us all to Himself as we are His workmanship and He has promised to perfect that which concerns us. So as we strive to keep a soft and humble heart turned toward Him, always, blessings.

    Thank you for the compliment on the OP. I do remember the saying, and still use it today.

    Blessings,

    Much love in Christ, Not me

    @Not me,

    Going by your pic next to a bike, I would suggest that you need a lot of God's Grace to ride the beast that the bike seems to be.

    Shalom

    PS: - I use one to, to blow the cobwebs away.

    Heehee,

    Yes, she’s a 2010 Goldwing 1800, she’s the beauty and I’m the beast, but God has promised to conform me into the image of His Son.

    So with a heart turned towards Him, I say the same words Mary did, “be it onto me according to your word”.

    Blessings,

    Much love in Christ, Not me

    Ps, enjoy yours this summer, I’m planning a 4000 or so mile trip myself, should be a blast!

    I have had an ST1100 for close on 20 years now. Hopefully I will get another 10 years out of her before I will have to hang up the spurs.

    I got it as a toy when I received a golden handshake years ago and I have not really worked since.

    I have ridden a Goldwing and I liked the way you could fishtail it around corners.

    Enjoy your ride! Never tried to fishtail it around a corner (yet) :)

    I got the Traxxion Dynamic’s suspension and steering upgrades on it awhile ago and she corners like it’s on rails.

    Blessings,

    Yes, it supposed to be one of the best suspension and steering upgrades on the market. They, Traxxion Dynamic’s have a bunch of YouTube videos on the upgrade. The total package was about $3,500.00 but it was sooo worth it, feels like I got a cafe racer (almost, if we’re grading on a curve)

    Blessings in Christ, Not me
