~Do not quench the Spirit ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:19~
~"So what hardship are you willing to endure, to see My will accomplished through you?"~
~Your relationship isn't knowing "ABOUT" GOD! Relationship is to "KNOW" GOD,
so that in the end and you stand before Him for the first time in heaven… HE KNOWS YOU~
~Do we, as Christians witness Jesus to the lost because we love Jesus? Or do we witness Jesus to the lost because we love them as Jesus loves them?~
~A prompting from God means that you are to DO. Thinking, causes you to... NOT DO!~
~Being on the tall mountain is where "you" go, to meet with God. Being in the deep valley is where "God" goes, to meet with you!~
By faith I am a child of God. Come on and quite playing with words and just realize what you have!
1 Kings 17:14
For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth.
Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. (1 John 3:2)
Paul himself confessed to sinning after he became a child of God- does this mean he won't be saved if he brings it before God and asks for forgiveness.
No, Jesus saved us from sin, and sin is defeated. Read the last chapter of John's final letter. It is if we make a practice of sin that stops us from being saved, and no one who is saved makes a practice of sin.
I sinned after I became a Christian and was baptised in the spirit. But I have left those sins for dust now because Jesus has saved me.
If you say you have never sinned once after becoming a Chistian or you are either a liar or the best Christian I have ever met. (sin includes insults, lustful glances- the minor things as well)
17 and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him in order that we may also be glorified with Him.
18 ¶For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
19 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.
20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope
21 that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
22 For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
23 And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body.
24 For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one also hope for what he sees?
25 But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it.
Why are we waiting for something that we already actually have? We don't need the Spirit of adoption when you are already in fact adopted. John says pretty much the same thing as well when speaking of enduring faith. Takes reading the whole letter in context as opposed to crawling all over one verse and not giving heed to the other words in that letter.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1 John 1:8
John was stating a fact that we're not perfect, we still "have" sin. What point are you getting to? Anyway gotta go for today... God Bless You
