(IV.)....the fire(Jude 1:23)(Zechariah 3:2)(Amos 4:11).Godly reasoning , thinking is a must(Philippians 2:5). One must honor their promises to God, but if one isn't walking in the power of His Spirit, doesn't know what walking in the Spirit means, don't know about God's overcoming power, how can they? It's impossible. Wrong reasoning and Ignorance are tremendous stumbling blocks in regard to spiritual growth(Isaiah 1:18). (Hebrews 12:1 )(Ephesians 6:11). God Bless!

*One thing a person should never do is make a promise to God*

I had a buying problem. To stop doing it I promised God I wouldn't buy anything for a month and I didn't. Funny thing is while I was making the promise again the next month the Lord stopped and told me "Don't promise me. I want you to say no now to buying without having to promise." Simple point is, for me it made it to easy when I promised. He wanted me to learn to do it without promising.

One thing a person should never do is make a promise to God, because we are humans that make mistakes and alot of times something comes up and we can't keep that promise. Once a vow is made to God, a person should do everything in their power to keep that vow, because God remembers all. God never told us how many times he will forgive a person over the same sin, but he did say that (paraphrasing) if a person continues the same sin and know it he will turn them over to a reprobate mind.

God certainly allows us to live with the consequences of our actions and sins. Whether one wishes to call this punishment or a reminder not to do it again is debateable perhaps. An illegitimate child is born, the mother spends the next 18 years bringing up the child, her career on hold, the father is financially responsible for the same amount of years, his legitimate family having less. That does not change if they repent and ask forgiveness.

I have made promises to God, and have not kept them. Don't we all - when we say we will read the Bible and pray every day - but then we somehow don't find the time to? However, I know that He is still at work in my life, and that he knows that I am not infallible. God forgets a sin we have committed as soon as he forgives us for it. So if it is repeated, then He is ready and willing to forgive us.

I have in the past read erotic literature on the internet. It became an addiction. Then I decided that this would not go any further. That I would NOT remember what I have read, and would NOT read any more. However, I have slipped back occasionally. And each time, I have stopped myself from reading more - or re-reading. It will always be a battle.

I know that God has given me the will to stop sinning in this manner, and He has given me the strength to resist. And I know that He forgives me each time I am tempted, and follow through on the temptation. Praise God, I have not read anything for two years now, although I do sometimes think about it. But that, thankfully, is a rare occurrence.

What is a reprobate in the context y'all are using it?

If you commit a sin and thereby break a promise to God and then something bad happens to you that has nothing to do with the sin you committed - is that the punishment of God?

I believe God understands us completely. Our desires, our efforts, our abilities, our shortcomings,and our intentions. God can not be relying on man's actions for man's salvation. To do so would be to depend on man's human nature, which of course is fallen and evil through and through. Your question would place limits on God and that is ridiculous!

(I.)There is always a consequence for sin. Some are saved(clean, have no guile), but still have to live with the consequences of their actions,for example, broken marriages, jail, lost precious anointings from God, missed blessing,wrecked finances, etc. God is just, He knows the heart. If someone is playing the hypocrite , God knows.If someone is struggling, but honestly repents, desiring to do what is right , God knows, and desires to help them, but one must not LIMIT GOD(Psalm 78:41).....

(II.)The only one's God can't work with are those who fight against His Truth,they fight against His Holy Spirit. God knows if one desires His Truth or not.God provides enough power for His people to resist sin, temptation, but many are not aware of this, so how can you use something if you are not aware that It exist? Dead Churches misapply God's Word, so Many Christian's don't live the victorious overcoming life through Jesus that they should be living(Hosea 4:6)....

(III.)We must Examine ourselves, make sure we are not reasoning anywhere near reprobate reasoning!(2 Cor. 13:5,6).Some are "in the beginnings" of being a reprobate because of their ungodly reasoning,if they continue on, they will be totally swept away,UNABLE to EVER come to the knowledge of God's Truth(2 Tim. 3:7). A person approaching that severe stage of being a reprobate, delivererance is rare,only on a few occasions are they like a brand pulled from...
