Tongue Talker And Adultery

Speaking in tongues and adultery: My wife, a pentecostal spoke in tongues and got carried away in the spirit numerous times, yet I saw no difference in her way of life. She still cheated, left me, took my stepson, broke my heart and repeated her parent's mistakes--what's the point?

"God can and does whatever He deems necessary to destroy that which prevents us from knowing and glorifying Him."

He already has in His Son. That is what a second look at the cross from Father God's view will bless you with. What prevented us from knowing Him and having His glory expressed through us was the fact that, born of flesh, we descended from Adam.

The "TRUE HOLY GHOST" would never speak through a person with unrepentant sin in their life, that's blasphemy, yes she was speaking in tongues, but I wasn't the HOLY GHOST!

11. and our status as Christians would be unsure. We would not know which one of the promises God He would be able to complete and which one's He wouldn't. The action of Satan would then alter and change the plan of God, and revelations would be uncertain. So many implications would come into our view of God and Christ and our hope for everlasting life with Christ. Now, we might not understand it all but one thing is sure, God is Sovereign. That never changes.

11. the seas and all that is in them, and thou preservest them all," "Neh.9:6." "In Him we live, and move and have our being," "Acts 17:28." He is "over all, and through all, and in all," "Eph.4:6" All things in heaven and earth, from the seraphim down to the tiny atom, are ordered by His never-failing providence. For not one molecule goes without notice to the Lord. For if one of them is existing without His knowledge, then He is not Sovereign.

The Scriptures very clearly teach that all things outside of God owe not merely their original creation, but their continued existence, with all their properties and powers, to the will of God. He upholds all things by the word of His power, "Hebrews 1:3." He is before all things, and in HIM all things consist, "Col. 1:17." "Thou art Jehovah, even thou alone; thou has made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and all things that are therein,
---karen on 5/9/06




Question John, do you think God is unable to stop those people from killing? If your answer is no, then you and I don't see God in the same way. To me He is Sovereign, that He permits something to happen is a sure thing. That He could stop it is also sure, yet He allows them to happen. Sin is in the world and will be done with if and when God says so. To even think He cannot control events is to think that Satan is above God and he is Sovereign and not God. Take your choice, I rather take God then satan.
---karen on 5/9/06


Karen. Can we really say that God is in control in every circumstance? All you have to do is go outside and see the people who God does not control. They kill, steal, destroy and hate. The devil has control in those cases. The lunatics in the Bible were demonically controlled until Jesus healed them. The ones that were not healed remained in the devils control. God gives us the free will to obey or not to obey. The ultimate ending is in His hands but until then the devil has plenty of control.
---john on 5/9/06


daphn8897,
I agree. In the context of I Cor 11, when Paul spoke of not discerning the body he was talking about the lack of respect and consideration for other Christians. As you said, it is about their being selfish and selfserving. In that context, that is "not discerning the Lord's body".
---Bruce5656 on 5/9/06


IV. I am with you sister Daphn8897. misrepresenting the work of the Holy Spirit can make a person believe as many of the tel-evangelist, that teach that we can control the Holy Spirit to do what we want. We have been made a vessel for Christ, but for Him to do as He wills in our lives. Not what we will. For He knows the time of each persons life.
---karen on 5/9/06


111. that connot be done now. The providences of God are in effect all the time and He does heal whom He wishes yet everything He does is for His will and purpose. Many times He just gives strength, other times He just carries you through your surgery or pain. We know that because we ask Him for help. This help comes in many different forms, for the family, for the friends and other times for just our faith. But He is in control.
---karen on 5/9/06




11. has been answered pretty well. I see prayer request from many Christians who are going through surgery or that have cancer. No one knows what you will get in the future. We are all really dying in a sense. We all ask God for His will in the persons life. The healing interpretation has been taken wrong because the proof is out there. Even the people that Jesus healed had to die. His healing was to authenticate His arrival as the Messiah. People could see it done right in front of their eyes.
---karen on 5/9/06


I also have no "beef" with the Holy Spirit. I have a beef with people that address others as if they are not saved. Like they are witnessing to unbelievers when in fact they are talking to another Christian. Debating on interpretations of Scripture is great, we all have our personal experience with Christ. Its when someone puts themselves above the others as if God only communicates with them and not others is what I have a problem with. The question about whether we have been healed,
---karen on 5/9/06


Linda, Yes, Paul talked about discerning the body - he was rebuking folks for being selfish and selfserving. He was not talking about being spiritual enough to be healed. I have no "beef" with the Holy Spirit, only with those who misrepresent Him.
---daphn8897 on 5/8/06


With the exception of the Pentecost, I always consider "speaking in tongues" to be the result of some emotional and psychological instability of the person. Her adulterous behavior is just a perfect match of her emotional instability.

He wants us to know Him intimately and when you know someone intimately, you know them in every aspect of their being. If you think I am proud and arrogant, then that is truth to you and it makes absoulutely no sense whatsoever to attempt to minister to you if you see me that way. I can take a licking and keep on ticking and keep right on seeing you as righteous, holy, a saint of God, a brother, etc. and continue to agree with what Father says of you even when you don't.

"Only a person that speak like you and say what you say to others has to believe they have the mind of God..."

We have the mind of Christ. Christ has the mind of God. That's Scripture. Having His mind available means we can know His will (which is a part of the mind). His Spirit reveals His mind to us and thus His will so to say that we cannot know His will is to speak against the very Word of God.
---Linda6563 on 5/7/06


I am not making an assumption there when I say that. I have heard what you call yourself and it doesn't agree with what Father calls you. How can two walk together except they be agreed? The Word tells us that not all shall sleep but we shall all be changed at the last trump. That tells me that there will be believers who won't see a death apart from the one Jesus died and they won't put off their bodies but will simply be changed and put on immortality.
---Linda6563 on 5/7/06


Furthermore, you fail to explain how or why you can still call yourself a sinner in Adam and be called a new creature in Christ by Father God in 2 Cor.5:17 or how you can have a heart of sin and be called the very righteousness of God in Christ Jesus in 2 Cor.5:21. A sinner is one who is born of Adam by first birth of the flesh. If you are born again, your confession of still being a sinner is affecting your life whether you believe that or not.

You go on about no change, much less healing, until we die and get an immortal body but you have no explanation for Romans 12:1,2, Romans 8:11 (which says mortal body not immortal body), 13, 19-23, 2 Cor.4:6-11 (which clearly says mortal flesh not immortal body). Those Scriptures even talk about not putting off the tent (the mortal body) but instead it being swallowed up of immortality.

Lupe, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is not "my excellency of words" but instead the excellency and might of His Spirit within me conveyed in those words.

That is what growth is. It is the renewing of the mind to things we may have never possibly considered much less ever seen. That is why Paul prayed that prayer in Eph.1:17-23 and why you (and I) need to pray it and continue to pray it. I don't disagree fully with much of what you say. I simply believe there is more than what you have seen. That is why it sounds like I disagree.

I do believe that there are dimensions of growth in Christ and what you believe to be pride in me is simply the confidence I have in Him because of the Him I know.

Father God is not "out there somewhere" looking on us with pity and waiting on us to get it together. He is close, personal, and intimate, dwelling within us by His Spirit. And if that same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He will quicken your mortal bodies. Believe me, when the Spirit of God brings life to and manifests in your mortal (not immortal) body, He brings with Him His complete nature, including that of Jehovah-Rapha, the God who heals.

You don't believe we can truly know Him or His will, as if He would not nor does He want to reveal Himself or His will to us, though it would take Him doing that for us to know Him intimately.

Lupe, this is my last response to you regarding healing of the body. There are two reasons that I can see that you have a hard time understanding how or why healing can come to the natural body. First, you believe that God is "somewhere out there" and does not care at all about our physical bodies. Instead of knowing Him as a loving Father, you only know Him as a ruling God. Any good loving Father who knows His children desires of be known of His children.

When His Son was striped, was it not in a physical body? When Jesus got up on the third day, did He not get up in a body? "Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up. He spake concerning the temple of His body." Father cares just as much about the physical body as He does the other 2/3 of us because it takes a body to express Him.

That man is Christ and He is head and body. "And I pray God that your WHOLE spirit, soul, and body (there's your wholeness) be preserved blamesless unto the coming (appearing) of our Lord Jesus Christ."

When God sent His Son, didn't He have a physical body?

" Linda, You presume that being made whole is for this earthly and physical existence."

Wholeness includes every aspect of man: spirit, soul, body, social relationships, and finances. When God formed Adam and then breathed into Him the breath of life, Adam possessed in spirit the nature of God, in his soul he possessed the mind of God , and in body the expression of God. That is God's purpose...to have a man in the earth in full dominion and walking in the fullness of all that He is.

Father God did what was absolutely necessary to destroy who we were in Adam and make us new creation beings able to not only contain but also express His glory. That was a one time, once for all work that does not have to be done again and again and again. Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world.
