Pray these words out loud from your heart: "Lord Jesus, I am praying here to you with Eloy. I confess that I need to be saved. Please forgive me Lord Jesus, forgive me God, and forgive me Holy Spirit for sinning against you. I accept your sacrifice in my place on the tree, and I believe that you rose again from the dead. Please wash away all of my sins by your blood. And fill me with your Holy Spirit. Save me and I will be saved, for you my praise. Give me your new life, and write my name in your Lamb's Book of Life. Keep me safe, and keep me saved, and help me to always follow you all the days of my life, and forever more. In Jesus I pray here in agreement with Eloy, Amen." Go to church, get baptized, pray and read the New Testament.
---Eloy on 11/1/11


Craig, so be it. you don't have to ask me if you don't want. You can always ask someone else just in case you are not listening to the Spirit. The Spirit does work through many of God's people. That is how people are discipled when they begin their walk with Christ. It could be a leader at the Church, a brother who know the meat of the Word, or a great godly commentator. There are many great ones. Peace

Sorry, but I think Id rather hear the truth from the Spirit of Truth that lives in ME, just as He does every believer. Thanks for the offer though.
---CraigA on 10/24/11

CraigA, I hope you have never given any advice on this site then, if you say that christians already have all the answers to everything inside of them. And that christians cannot be mis-informed or in error, and that every belief they have comes straight from the Holy Spirit as you suggest.

Hebrews 11:17 "By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: ..."
James 1:12 "Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried,..."
1Peter 1:7 "That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:"

Michelle, I have learned the best way back to God is to turn off those "so called Christian" radio and television stations.

Take time to read, study, and learn God's Truths, as it is written in His Word the Bible, 2 Timothy 2:14-19.
---Rob on 10/23/11


Craig, if you had paid attention to what I wrote, I never said,
"--"So, yes, your statement is correct, those who know Christ FIRST HAND do not need commentaries"-- MarkV"
Kathr said that, not me. I only quoted what she said I said but didn't. Another lie. What you are doing is supporting her lie.
If you want to know about God, about the Word of God, about something in Scripture you do not have to support lies. Just ask and I will answer with a kindly response.
Concerning commentaries, not all are good. If you are born of the Spirit you should be able to discern what is and what isn't good. If you are led wrong, it wasn't the Spirit that led you wrong. It's that you are not walking in the Spirit.
---Mark_V. on 10/23/11


Believers are not led into the wilderness. They are led to Christ by the Spirit. The wilderness has nothing to provide for us, unless you live in the woods. Believers do not have to be tested by God to find out any information they have or not have, God is all knowing. His knowledge is perfect. He never err's, never changes, never overlooks anything. "Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight, but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do" ( Heb. 4:13).
For He says, "For I know the things that come into your mind, every one of them" ( Ez. 11:5).
The words that we are led to the wilderness are only words to sound religious.
---Mark_V. on 10/23/11


Good verse, Kathr.

We are all led in the wilderness to be tested sooner or later.

Our Savior was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tested. We are not greater than our savior.
---CraigA on 10/22/11


Here's another promise to OVERCOMERS.

James 1:12 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.

Yet, some here actually believe they are exempt from trials and testings. "Oh" they say, " God's Elect don't need to be tested", because God already knows this or that.

What He knows is, those who think they are ABOVE testing, who make great boasts in their election, education, etc, and actually denying Christ in allowing His work in us to OVERCOME the world and satan, are false teachers.
---kathr4453 on 10/20/11




--"So, yes, your statement is correct, those who know Christ FIRST HAND do not need commentaries"-- MarkV

Does that include the footnotes in the Geneva Bible and the WCF? We dont need those either right...since they are the opinions of men?
---CraigA on 10/20/11


Revelation 3:21
To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

Who are the Overcomers?

1 John 5:4
For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

1 John 5:5
Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

Anyone can say they are the Elect, (words are cheap) but not everyone can say they are an overcomer.

ACTIONS speak louder than words!

Those still in the world who put their faith in the doctrine of MAN, will NEVER OVERCOME!
---kathr4453 on 10/20/11


Kathr, the sad part is, you didn't understand why I answered. And if you cannot understand that, then it's a hopeless case. I figured that since you do not understand Scripture concerning the Deity of Christ, and you don't read commentaries concerning the Deity of Christ, you might understand what I say. But that is impossible too. First, you have to understand what it is to be born again. The answer is found in Scripture, but the Spirit has to reveal it to you. You have to have eyes to see, ears to hear, and a heart to perseive the Truth found in God's Word.
"If you are one of the elect, chosen from the foundation of the world, and have been saved already, you will understand, because the Spirit will reveal it to you."
---Mark_V. on 10/20/11


"The Righteousness of Christ is more than what was imputed to us upon our faith in Christ. Our sanctified life IN CHRIST and His life in us is a life long journey."
kathr4453 on 10/19/11

Well stated kathr4453!

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."
---Nana on 10/20/11


The Righteousness of Christ is more than what was imputed to us upon our faith in Christ. Our sanctified life IN CHRIST and His life in us is a life long journey.

Without the sufferings of Christ, His testing, and example to us in our own obedience, not only to testing but our identicication with Him in death, we too learn that obedience through His power in us.

If Jesus was laid on the alter as a baby, and then slain for our sin, could He really have been that faithful High Priest who was tested in all ways just like we are yet without sin?

MarkV, I'm really tired of your bashing the Gospel, and others who don't share your ignorance.

You really don't KNOW anything. That's the sad part.
---kathr4453 on 10/19/11


Some here claim to know God yet are ignorant about many truths the scriptures have told us about God.

God's only Begotten Son, yes, Jesus was God made flesh, the vey WORD of God/Diety. markv believes that is denying the Deity of Christ...go figure.

God the Father didn't have to test Jesus for 40 days either, but He did.

I know why He did, but obviously markv does not, and scoffs at a very important part of DOCTRINE that will always leave gaps in his understanding of the doctrine of the Cross, and even WHY Jesus became obedient unto death of a cross.

He's much more concerned with the doctrine of his OWN ELECTION, than anything he is told about Christ.

Wells without water, spewing up their own shame.

Kathr, don't act innocent. You knew I was responding to Nana where he spoke of MacArthur and his commentaries. So don't act like surprise about my answer. You should take your med's.
I also never said,
"So, yes, your statement is correct, those who know Christ FIRST HAND do not need commentaries"
What I did say was if you had read some commentaries you might know who Jesus Christ was, is and always will be, since reading the Bible did not help you. There were two reasons why I said that, one, you don't believe in the eternal Son of God. Second, because in His Deity, He is God who does not have to be obedient to anyone. You were cutting down His Deity and represented Him as someone who is not also God with your answer.
---Mark_V. on 10/19/11


Kathr, you always have a gripe. Now it is commentaries. ---

Maybe, just maybe, if you had learned first who Christ was, is, and always will be you would not need any commentaries to tell you.

---Mark_V. on 10/19/11


Markv, Have you gone off your meds AGAIN.

I stated I never needed commentaries because I do know Christ First hand.

So, yes, your statement is correct, those who know Christ FIRST HAND do not need commentaries.

Markv, maybe you should think through what you post first before posting.

I'm still waiting on the answer of WHEN you CHOSE to become one of God's ELECT REMNANTS? What caused you to MAKE that decision? Reading commentaries?
---kathr4453 on 10/19/11


Kathr, you always have a gripe. Now it is commentaries. And so that I might think you know a whole lot you say,

"So learning of Christ is most assuredly through our own personal experience of our identification with Christ, and not books or commentaries."
You have not taken your own advice.
Maybe, just maybe, if you had learned first who Christ was, is, and always will be you would not need any commentaries to tell you.
You do not believe He is eternal. That is your first mistake. Maybe if you had read commentaries concerning His Deity you would know the Christ of Scripture since Bible along has not helped you.

---Mark_V. on 10/19/11


Jesus set the model by His perfect obedience to the Father, which we are to use as the pattern for our obedience to Him.
---Mark_V. on 10/11/11

Absolutely, and scripture tells us Jesus became OBEDIENT unto death, as we are too to keep this same mind in us.

Jesus also Learned OBEDIENCE through the things He SUFFERED.

So learning of Christ is most assuredly through our own personal experience of our identification with Christ, and not books or commentaries.


AND Jesus did not LEARN the 10 commandments by suffering.

Nana, I need no medication, what I need is to stop responding to your works for salvation answers and just ignore them. I will do my best to do that. you do not deserve an answer. I don't want you to whin and complain as some others do. I am having a happy life in Christ.
---Mark_V. on 10/12/11


"Nana, you are not having a dialogue with me. You are trying to look for fault. But that is ok, you have done this so many times, its not the first."
Mark_V. on 10/12/11

It is you looking for fault. You answered my blog entry on 7/27/11 and took it out of context. From speaking to Michelle, you turned to Marc and Nana.
Are you off your medications again? Please, get on them again and get a life while you are at it.
---Nana on 10/12/11


Nana, you are not having a dialogue with me. You are trying to look for fault. But that is ok, you have done this so many times, its not the first. You go ahead and believe what you want. Believe you have to do works for salvation if you want. I have no problem with you believing that. So many do already. But the Truth is, if you are in Christ you are a new creation. And He promises He will never leave you nor forsake you. No where is it mention that you have to travel 2,000 miles to be in the presence of Christ. That is not from John MacAthur, R.C Sproul, or Spurgeon, but from Scripture.
---Mark_V. on 10/12/11


"This is not emotional or mystical, but defined in (v.10) as obedience. Jesus set the model by His perfect obedience to the Father, which we are to use as the pattern for our obedience to Him."
---Mark_V. on 10/11/11

And is impossible to have a dialogue with you for you jump to John McArthur cut and paste. As if you are saying anything new!
John 15:27 clearly shows that the words are addressed to those you call saved.
Now get this through your head:

John 15:10 "If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love, even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love."
If you are not in Him, He is not in you.
---Nana on 10/11/11

Nana, I was not speaking about someone lost. I was speaking of someone already saved by Grace through faith. He is already baptized in One body in Christ. He is in Christ and the Spirit of Christ is in him. So He (Christ) is not 2,000 miles away. He is within you. Only if you are saved.
What Chria wrote is great, for she made a very good point. The love of God for his son, never went away. He went to meet him with joy. It was a parable. Abide in My love" This is not emotional or mystical, but defined in (v.10) as obedience. Jesus set the model by His perfect obedience to the Father, which we are to use as the pattern for our obedience to Him.
---Mark_V. on 10/11/11


"Nana, returning to Christ is not driving or flying 2.000 miles. He is in your heart already if you are saved."
---Mark_V. on 10/4/11
He who returns is whom was away so, you are wrong that "He is in your heart already if you are saved"
If you are not in Him, He is not in you.
John 15:10 "If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love, even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love."
chria9396 on 7/27/11 used an excellent analogy with The Prodigal Son quotes and analysis.
---Nana on 10/10/11


Marc, I just wanted to remind you that we have two Scott's on line. One is
"Scott," the other is "Scott 1." I believe you answered the wrong Scott. For the other is a Jehovah Witness.

Nana, returning to Christ is not driving or flying 2.000 miles. He is in your heart already if you are saved. What it means is returning to His direction's. His lead. Not driving 2,000 miles.

Scott,

''After cleansing those belonging to this house Jehovah poured out his spirit upon them and assigned them the responsibility of serving as HIS SOLE VISIBLE CHANNEL, THROUGH WHOM ALONE SPIRITUAL INSTRUCTION WAS TO COME....[you] must recognise and accept this appointment of the ''faithful and discreet slave'' and BE SUBMISSIVE TO IT.'' (Watchtower, 10/1/67, p. 590)

The Watchtower wants you to submit to the organisation rather than being a co-heir with Christ. They seek to rob us of our inheritance. Satan also seeks to stop us inheriting the Promise.

---francis on 7/31/11


"... you know the time and the distance which separates you from the place you were once. Just retrace your steps.
---Nana on 7/27/11

Yes, retrace your steps (turn back towards God/repent, but i repeat: ""when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him." That's the love of the father,while you, or any of us, are "a great way off"."
In other words, the heart attitude counts. One does not necessarily have to retrace all steps/correct all wrongs before the Father accepts one back. after all, that's works. Once reconciled, He will guide in correcting wrongs/cleaning up our mess.

Michelle, since I don't know you, and please don't be offended by this, I would hate to give advise to someone who may not be saved to begin with. Jesus said I will never leave you or forsake you. SO, if you are truly saved, He's right there. You just stepped out of His Light and chose I suppose to live in a dark place, maybe just as John Mark did??? However, John Mark, seeing the world held nothing for him, returned. If you confess your sin He is faithful and just to forgive your sin and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. God is right there, just turn around...
---kathr4453 on 7/24/11

Michelle, Craig posted the story of the prodigal son. Notice that it says "when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him."

And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it, and let us eat, and be merry: For this my son was dead, and is alive again, he was lost, and is found.

From there you go to church regularly,read your Bible every day,in fact its good to set aside at least an hour a day to praise God for what he has done,study your Bible,and pray. Put God first in your life and keep your mind stayed on him. Depart from even the appearence of any kind of evil in your life and walk the straight and narrow road with Christ.
