Anne, do you know the meaning of Duplicity?
---kathr4453 on 6/11/09

KATH I'm not sure what your problem is with anne but it seems a bit hostile. She clearly used disobedient "christians" with quotation marks in the right context and defined it with a verse, maybe if you weren't to busy pointing fingers at other people then you would be able to make a comment that would benefit us all. Thank you.
---metuschelah on 6/11/09


Part1
Exzucuh,Anne & Mark I think we are all saying the same thing here but wording it wrongly. All of you are right, you just need to elaborate more clearly. Anne & Exzucuh are saying that God can turn his back on people, but the question should be on whom?
As Mark quoted from the word "They went out from us, but they were not of us, for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us, but they went out that they might be made manifest that none of them were of us (John 2:19)". Whom does god turn his back on? It is the children of disobedient.
---Metuschelah on 6/11/09


Part2
(Eph2:2)"Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:" REMEMBER!(Mat 7:20) wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
King David sinned but he repented (Jer 18:8)"If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them". Now Solomon, even in all his wisdom did not repent, thus, the kingdom was taken away because of his unrepentance.
---Metuschelah on 6/11/09


Anne:

You are right. This is a truth that OSAS people tend to gloss over.
---StrongAxe on 6/11/09


I know you provided the scripture for the sake of those who are like the Bereans and who do truly wish to search the scriptures and make sure they are living in accordance to God's word with all their heart.

Thanks Exzucuh for thinking of those who sincerely want the truth according to scripture and providing those verses for their sake and spiritual growth. God bless you.

III. Disobedient "Christians": These claim to be 'saved' but their works/words deny Him.(I Jn 1:6) They are NOT like Jesus and Paul who preached against the dangers of sin, but rather these false teachers teach sin is 'normal' which is Satan's teaching. These receive greatest condemnation come Judgment Day. Anne***


Anne seems to think everyone is a Christian and we are just divided up into different categories. The Good, the bad and the ugly!

These..III are NOT SAVED...AKA Christians.

Christian means disciple of Christ. The Disciples ( meaning FOLLOWER of Christ) were first called Christians.

There is no such thing as a disobedient Disciple or follower of Jesus. How silly is that!
---kathr4453 on 6/11/09


GOD DIVIDES THE WORLD INTO TWO GROUPS:
THE OBEDIENT AND DISOBEDIENT

I. Obedient Christians: People like Paul, Jesus, Mary. These will be told by God they are good/faithful servants.

II. Obedient to their conscience but never heard of Jesus.: Will be in heaven. (Rom 2:13-16)

III. Disobedient "Christians": These claim to be 'saved' but their works/words deny Him.(I Jn 1:6) They are NOT like Jesus and Paul who preached against the dangers of sin, but rather these false teachers teach sin is 'normal' which is Satan's teaching. These receive greatest condemnation come Judgment Day.

IV. Disobedient people who never heard of Jesus: Get less punishment than disobedient 'Christians.'
---Anne on 6/11/09


You can see by his rude and evil manner that what I an saying is true. I could answer his question but I won't.
---Exzucuh on 6/11/09

Rude? Evil?
Have an answer for a MrkvBerean but, withold it? Hmmm
. See by his manner that you are true??
We all see your not comfortable,confident enough on position to show scripture supporting/witnessing.
16As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to be understood, which the unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

17Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with error of wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
---trav on 6/11/09


Exzucuh~ I know you did not provide that clear concise scripture for the sake of MarkV and to answer him since as you said he does only seem to want to promote confusion here.

I know you provided the scripture for the sake of those who are like the Bereans and who do truly wish to search the scriptures and make sure they are living in accordance to God's word with all their heart.

Thanks Exzucuh for thinking of those who sincerely want the truth according to scripture and providing those verses for their sake and spiritual growth. God bless you.
---Anne on 6/11/09


My suggestion is that you confess and ask God forgiveness for your unbelief. Confess your unbelief is in providence, his promise to provide guidance to all who truly seek him, his grace and faithfulness. Ask him to forgive you for your pride (in measuring God by your time clock and limited vision).
Be of comfort for we've all commited this sin at some time and have had to follow David in asking God to restore the joy of our salvation which he will do for the truly contrite heart.
It sounds like you've probably lived longer than his murdered son who fell to no such human frailties. This in itself is more than you or I deserve. Do we really have any claim against God-ever?
---larry on 6/11/09




MarkV~ Genuine believers/children of God can be separated from God if they return back to ways of darkness. This is what you don't understand. But this is something we need to teach all believers so that they learn to put on the full armor of God and be able to ward off the deceits and temptations of evil and endure to the end.

Solomon was a genuine believer and exceedingly wise. He was faithful to God for decades. Yet even he became deceived and tempted and resisted the Holy Spirit and lived for idolatry and not for God. Even at his death he still desired the murder Jeroboam.

David was a genuine believer. However he submitted to temptation and dreadful sins that endured at least 9 months. Fortuneately he repented and returned.
---Anne on 6/11/09


Yes I do! A child of God knows the difference in scripture and opinion. You give your opinion
I gave you scripture. I believe scripture not opinions. If you were a child of God you would believe his word. I could keep giving you Gods word but you do not believe it. I knew this already. you do not want to know the truth. You are a trouble maker a fault finder. You twist what people say and never say anything yourself. I will tell you the same thing Jesus told the Jews, If you were of my Father you would know who I am, a man who is telling you the truth. But you do not know me or my Father.
---Exzucuh on 6/11/09


Exzucuh, You answered just like Anne. You both do not know the difference between a child of God and those who are imposters who are children of wrath. Can you not see the difference? You said you studied in a siminary and should know. Who are those who forsake God? who are those who leave God? Who are those that turn their backs on God? Who are those angels that sinned? In their case they had no Atonement for the Atonement is only for human beings who are sinners.
"They went out from us, but they were not of us, for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us, but they went out that they might be made manifest that none of them were of us"
This has not been manifested to you. Why?
---MarkV. on 6/11/09


***Exzucuh~ I tried to answer MarkV in kindness, and all I ever get is completely untrue, ungracious remarks in return. Anne***

Anne, here you go again, making comments like this...trying to make someone look bad just because you don't like what they answer or say.

I see no ungracious, untrue remarks!

Please stop making unkind comments about people here on line, trying to make someone look bad,just to make yourself look good. It's not working!

GOD TURNS HIS BACK ON THOSE WHO TURNS THEIR BACK ON HIM

Jude 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

Jude 1:5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having

saved the people

out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
---Exzucuh on 6/11/09


GOD TURNS HIS BACK ON HIS CHILDREN WHEN THEY TURN THEIR BACKS ON HIM

Deuteronomy 31:16-17 And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, and this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go to be among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them. Then my anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and

I will forsake them,

and I will hide my face from them,

and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them, so that they will say in that day, Are not these evils come upon us, because our God is not among us?
---Exzucuh on 6/11/09

GOD TURNS HIS BACK ON THOSE WHO TURN THEIR BACKS ON HIM.

2 Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment,

2 Peter 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not, and shall utterly perish in their own corruption,

2 Peter 2:20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
---Exzucuh on 6/11/09


Ephesians 2:2-3: "Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others."
Ephesians 5:6-7: "Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them."
Hence, "repent, and do the first works", "Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die"
---Nana on 6/11/09


Juan, I'm here to gurantee that God never turns His back on His children. The question is are you a child of God? If you have I am here to tell you God will never leave you nor forsake you. All those who say He does do not know what Salvation is.
Sin does not separate a genuine believer from God completely. Sin separates all that are lost because they have rejected Christ and have broken the law. They are condemned for breaking the law.
New believers are not under the law but under Grace. They are capable of sinning but when they do they have an Advocate in Christ. They are not condemned anymore. And just because they are not condemned anymore does not give them a licence to sin, as some say it does.
---MarkV. on 6/11/09


You can see now why I would not answer this person. he does not want an answer he wants to be right. I will not waste my time with people like this. They do not ask questions they use question to promote confusion, if they could prove their theories they would not ask a question. You can see by his rude and evil manner that what I an saying is true. And I could answer his question but I won't.

Exzucuh~ I tried to answer MarkV in kindness, and all I ever get is completely untrue, ungracious remarks in return.

I know you work in the ministry and was wondering how you deal with people who teach so contrary so scripture? My concern is not so much for the people who are teaching so wrongfully, but my concern in for the poor victims who are listening to such false teachings. I have to keep reminding myself that God will give discernment to His true children, and the only responsibility for us is to kindly but firmly preach the full gospel.

If you have any words of advice in your experiences I would appreciate it. Thanks brother.

Anne, you talked alot and said nothing I don't know already. What I told Exzucuh has to do with God's children. You do not even know who are God's children, how can you even answer? God's children are those born of the Spirit. No where does God state He abandons any of them. Not one passage in Scripture.
Please, before you answer questions of faith you need to know the difference between a genuine believer and one who is not. They are two kinds of people, those who are children of wrath and those who are children of God. I know you saw my answer to him and you came to the rescue but good intentions for the wrong purpose is wrong.

Matthew 21:24 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask you one thing, which if ye tell me, I in like wise will tell you by what authority I do these things.Matthew 21:25 The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven, he will say unto us, Why did ye not then believe him?Matthew 21:27 And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And he said unto them,

Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.

I do not have to answer questions that are designed by devious people that are not for edification but pride. I am not a Shepard to tares but wheat.
---Exzucuh on 6/10/09


MarkV~ You asked Exzucuh for scripture about God leaving those who leave Him.

We know sin separates us from God. Isaiah 59:2 tells us: "Your iniquites have separated you from God and your sins have hidden His face from you."

Sin separates because it is of the devil.
We can't serve 2 masters for we will love one and not the other, so we can't serve God and our fleshly will both.

This is why Paul and Jesus continuously warned the brethren to not be deceived for if we die in unrepentant sin, we will die separated from God.

Gal 5:19-21, Eph 5:5-7, Rev. 21:8, Jude 7, Lk 12:35-48 etc explain this.

I Chron 28:9 David warns Solomon "If you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever."
---Anne on 6/10/09


Exzucuh, please put down the passages where it states that God turns His back on His children?....."There is no condemnation to those who are in Christ" for they all walk in the Spirit. We have been reconciled to God.
---MarkV. on 6/9/09

let me answer for Exzucuh, yes God doesn't turn his back from his children but let us first define his children, it is those who keeps his commandments (John 13:34-35) thus if you turn your back on God's commandment then yes he will turn from you like he did to Israel (1king 11:9-11)but maybe the question we should ask ourselves is whether or not we were his children to began with. God did not die for everybody ONLY sinners/his chosen ones.

I do not waste my time any more with people like you. I have given you the word of God.

Mark V, the above
reminds me of a shep I asked some scripture questions off when I was struggling along.

The shep couldn't answer them and told me I was wrong...wrong....wrong. Perplexed, I asked him if he didn't care enough as a Christian....to help me find the truth then?
He was a hireling.

But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
John 10:11-13

Thank you sister Donna, great response from you. That is what is called faith. If we don't have that faith, why even enter into a relationship with Christ? It is a divine spiritual marriage. God never fails, and even when we do, God is alway there for us. He might permit us to get into trouble but only with a holy purpose in mind. many times to bring a greater faith in us. Many of us do fail and we later face the concequences for all sin has concequences. But He will never abandon us.
---MarkV. on 6/10/09


Jesus says:
(Jhn 6:37) All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.

In your time of hurt and turmoil, you may not FEEL that this verse applies to you. But, if you are sorry for the sins in your life (we all have sinned) and ask God's forgiveness, you can BELIEVE this promise.

God has not turned His back on you anymore than the sun has disappeared when you can't see it. God works in mysterious ways. And many times it FEELS like he is way late in answering our prayers (but afterward we see that He was right on time). Give your whole self, problems and all, to Jesus. He won't turn His back... and nothing is too difficult for Him.
---Donna66 on 6/9/09


I knew you couldn't find one passage, because it is not biblical. People who make up doctrines always run into trouble when compared to the word of God. You don't have to answer to me. But I can answer that you are wrong. And you are wrong. The other people who believe as you do are the one's that disagree with me. What else is new? Most of you come from the same religious background, that one of works for salvation. I don't expect any of them to change any time soon. But God who is rich in mercy can change them whenever He wants.
God never, and I mean never, turns His back on His children. To say He does is to say He saves you one day and He turns around and stabs them in the back the next.
Our God is a God who can be trusted.
---MarkV. on 6/9/09


I do not waste my time any more with people like you. I have given you the word of God.
You cannot understand what it is saying or my point. You will be wise to take the advice of many on this Christianet who have told you the same thing. You just take a point and twist it to make people appear to say what they are not saying. God does not turn his back on people who serve him and obey his word but he does turn his back on those that turn their backs on him. This is all I am going to add to this
discussion. I do not play on the merry go round
with the devil.

Exzucuh, please put down the passages where it states that God turns His back on His children? You speak as if there were many, so please put one.
I know you will not find one. For God does not change His nature. If He turns His back on His children then He cannot be a Just God. For He is righteous and the righteousness of Christ has been imputed to all those who are born of the Spirit. His children. He cannot and will never condemn you again once your sins have been forgiven. "There is no condemnation to those who are in Christ" for they all walk in the Spirit. We have been reconciled to God.
Your your doctrines comes from a doctrine that teaches works of the law for salvation. The doctrine that binds all who are lost.
---MarkV. on 6/9/09


God is the most Righteous Judge in the universe
But he does not judge by your standard. You are a creation, God made you from dirt. He gave you a soul that has the capability to be like him and the power of life by the spirit that gives you life. But by your own freewill you make the choices in your life to obey God and live or disobey and die. Death comes by spirit first then natural death. that is why Jesus said let the dead bury the dead. He was speaking of living people who were already dead as far as he was concerned. That is what
being Born again is for true life begins at this spiritual birth, it is a translation out of spiritual death, a resurrection into Life by
the second Adam.
---Exzucuh on 6/9/09


He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much worse punishment, suppose you, shall he be thought worthy, who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted the blood of the covenant, with which he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and has done insult unto the Spirit of grace? For we know him that has said, Vengeance belongs unto me, I will recompense, says the Lord. And again, The Lord *SHALL JUDGE HIS PEOPLE*( HIS CHILDREN?BELIEVERS) It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

God left his Son, turned his back on him on the cross, because your sin was on him, you think he will not turn his back on Christians that continue to sin willfully.

Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer, they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: Because they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:

God does not turn His back on His children. No where does it state God turns His back on any of His children. He turns his back on those who are lost for they love what they do against God, and refuse His counsel.
The call of wisdom in Poverbs mentions nothing about God turning His back on believers, in fact it is saying that they were scorners who delighted in their scorning, and that He will call them and they distained all His counsel, and would have nothing to do with Him. He later says they will try to call Him but He will not answer. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, and they did not choose the fear of the Lord.
---MarkV. on 6/9/09


This person said God turned his back on me, That tells me he either knows he is in sin or does not know God at all. I know God will turn his back on those who continually refuse him he says he will. He says that those who laugh when he is reaching out to them, that he will laugh at them in their day of trouble and will not hear their prayers. He says he will pour his wrath on the children of disobedience, those that walk on the blood of his Son. A trial is a test of faith, Tribulation to a Christian is from persecution, tribulation to the sinner is judgment, Chastisement is correction from God upon Christians who are
rebellious if they repent God will for give them, If they don't he will judge them with unbelievers.

---tom2 on 6/9/09


Exzucuh:

Then how can a someone who looks at another person who is enduring hard times tell whether that person is suffering the tribulations of a believer, or the reproof of a reprobate?

This has always been the problem with the dichotomies of the two opposing, but simultaneously active paradigms (God is Just: "good things happen to good people and bad things happen to bad people" vs. Satan Is Unjust: "bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people")

No I Don't. Christians have to endure tribulation. Through much tribulation we enter the kingdom of God. God delivers us out of all our tribulation. But people who endure tribulation know that God has not turned his back on them and they do not find fault with God but praise him and say thy will be done in my life. They are humble and have a broken and contrite heart before God, they are ready to repent if God reveals to them they are in sin.

Juan, you say you believe in God, what does that mean? Have you honestly given the Lord your heart? I hope your salvation is not a fake one through a false gospel. So many in Churches today who make committments to later just fall away. Some make a commitment every Sunday but never a true one. You need to make your salvation sure. Do you have a true love for Christ? That has to be a true love. How about, does the Spirit witness to your spirit that you are a child of God? If you don't have either one, you need to make a true confession before the Lord. Tom 2 said, "There is no such thing as a Pro-choice Christian," and I agree with him"

Leslie's comments on God hearing us.

The Bible says that God WILL answer our prayers when we do the following:
(1)have faith (Matthew 17:20-21),
(2)forgive others (Matthew 6:14-15),
(3)seek God and His kingdom first (Matthew 6:33-34),
(4)be obedient (John 14:15),
(5)repent (confess and turn from) sins (Luke 13:3,5),and
(6)live holy (without spot(1 Peter 1:15-16).

The Bible says to seek FIRST God and His Kingdom,
and ALL else will be added
We MUST seek God FIRST (His face, NOT His hand).

2nd Unforgiveness can also be why your prayers are not being answered.
Yes, faith is key, but forgiveness is also key

God said that He will not forgive or answer prayers
if we will not forgive others.

Forget "Conversations with God" and all the other opinions from concordances, authors who think they have the secret, novels, and any other reference book. These materials give you knowledge, but that's about it. You need the power of God. So...

Go straight to God for the answers.

Using the bible as it's own reference, the book of Job should be a good example. Job kept asking questions until the truth was finally revealed.

You may not be asking the right questions for God to answer you.

Take a two week sabbatical, away from the things of man, maybe a wilderness, and start asking questions and fasting.

There is a book Called, "Conversations with God" about a guy who is going through EXACTLY what is going on in your life. If you read it I think you'd find the guidance you've been asking god for.

Dear sir suffering is horible but is unavoidable we need to continue to hope in Jesus He will return soon. Try to pray everyday. I'm in continuing suffering with no other hope of any relief unless I die or Jesus returns I know suffering but Jesus told us it is bad down here.

When things were at the worst in the bible, ie, David's son dying, Esther's people about to be slaughtered, Israel's enemies winning, horrible things, people fasted to get direction from God. Set yourself to seek what His will for you is. David cried out to God "How long will you forsake me?". It's amazing how clear His voice is when we deny our flesh. I have fasted and prayed and told God I won't eat until He answers and He is always faithful.

What to do. I am confused. I believe in reaping what you sow and my pain has gone on for seven months. I lost my job to the bad economy, I lost my 2 year old Canadian son and my former fiance' to another man, and I can't even seem him because canada will not let me in the country because of a petty driving after suspension I received 7 years ago while I was in college. I have prayed for God to releive the pain but nothing. God has given aimee and my son what they need and left me in ruin. My faith is shaken. I will admit

WOW, sometimes it does seem that way, doesn't it? God, is big on waiting. Wait and see. He says this to me a lot. So in the meantime try, at least try, and enjoy the journey. Enjoy just everyday life and don't forget to count your blessings. I realize counting ones blessing can be difficult when you feel bad. Takes spiritual discpline. Try.>>>and God will help you.+

I have been placed in the same situation. I have lost my job, my sons, and my mother within weeks of each other. She was the only person who truly loved me. I tried to do the best I could for so many in my life, but none of it made a difference. My family was never a part of my life and when momma died, all that tied me to them died with her, so now I sit in the dark. the candlestick has lost its flicker and to answer the question of what you can do, nothing. Why? Ironically, it is all purposed.

Have you simply given up on life (become lazy/indifferent) by abandoning all sense of SELF so that whatever happens can just be attributed/blamed on God or satan or other people (Colossians 2:18 and 23)? God doesn't want us to just "give up" and just 'LET things happen to us', He wants us to 'grab life' and make it meaningful to us. We can't just 'let go and let God'.

Don't feel singled out, God turned his back on Moses
too... Exodus 33:23: "And I will take away mine hand,
and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not
be seen."

John, I can relate, your story sounds like what I am going through now. Church members become disinterested when they realize that you are having problems, prayer requests go unanswered and every time I pray things get worse. I am presented with life changing opportunities that get denied in the last decision making process. The bible I read says God will accept me as I am and change me. I would not treat my dog this way.

Hey john, instaed of losing everything, why not sell everything you have and give it to the poor. I did that 22 years ago and have more now that I did then and I'm not even trying to keep anything. By the way, my name is john also and I've been blogging here for well over 2 years and I wonder, seeing that you are new here, if you could change your name a we bit so people can know that you are you and I am me? Thanks. God bless you.
---john on 11/3/07


Yep, I'm in the same situation. Lost my job, lost the lawsuit over the lost job, lost the house, lost the truck, lost the new job, now have 14 days to get the rent together or lose the apartment which means everything I have left becomes abandoned property.

Been praying for 5 years, every time I pray I lose something else.
---john on 11/1/07


Read your Bible. God says he will never leave or forsake you. Examine your relationship with him to see if you have anything that is keeping you from being close to him, then get in his presence until you hear from him!

God does not send bad things, but that does not mean we are shielded from them entirely. Look at Job. My experience is that horrible things can happen to yuo, and over a lengthy time, and it seems as if God is not walking with you. But He will be carrying you when you do not have the strength to walk yourself
---alan8869_of_UK on 1/27/06


Your question: WHAT CAN I DO? KNOW that it's a test.You're being tried in the fire, your branches pruned, grapes pressed into wine-so many biblical analogies. Not pleasant, but the ONLY way to be like Jesus. You said you asked God for help. BELIEVE it will be answered when you ask. (the total KEY to prayer) Your Father only gives you GOOD THINGS. They are coming! Brother,press on towards the mark of your high calling in Jesus!

God never turns His back on anyone. We are the ones who turn from God through disobedience. We must ask for God's forgiveness and humbly seek out his guidance through diligent prayers and a sincere, contrite heart. God's blessings come when we obey Him.
---taylor on 1/26/06


James1:2Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

Juan, you are not alone. I suspect most of us have been there a time or two. Remember that God never leaves us or forsakes us and realize that when God feels far away, it's you that have moved ... not God. The Bible says if you draw near to God, He will draw near to you (James 4:8). That's His promise. Spend more time with Him and His presence will become more evident. Also remember Romans 8:28 - all things work together for good to those who love God, and are called according to His purpose.

Hebrews 13:5amplified

for He [God] [b]Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor [c]give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [d][I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor [e]let [you] down ([f]relax My hold on you)! [[g]Assuredly not!](A)

Satan destroys marriages and people's lives and then he will tell you, "See what your God did? If he really loves you, he would not have let this happen." Don't listen to the enemy. You know the Bible tells us that the Lord will never leave us, and that he will be with us even to the end. No matter what the enemy does to us, God is as close as the mention of his name. The enemy is Satan, not God. Pray with your wife, it may be that you both will be restored.
---Eloy on 1/24/06


I understand your feelings. When my husband left, I felt similarly. I learned to rest in the Lord, and trust Him. Jeremiah 29:11 says that the Lord has plans for you, and they are for good. Scripture also says "Be still and know that I am God." Read the Psalms and cry out to Him till He hears you.

Maybe it's you who've turned the back on God ... God never turns His back on us. He loves us more than we can imagine. Are you living in obedience to God? Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ? Maybe God has spoken and you just aren't listening. Keep praying and ask God what His plans for you are.
---Nellah on 1/23/06


Satan would love for you to give up and believe what you feel. Paul was a tentmaker and in prison often. Peter was a fisherman. The church of Macedonia was listed as poor. Jesus said that he that endureth unto the end shall be saved.
---Delmar on 1/23/06


Part 2:If you are a child of God, He has promised to "never leave you or forsake you." Search your heart and see if there is anything there that could cause these problems to be happening, if not, trust God to be faithful to do all that He has promised you.
