Christan Psalm 139:16 reads "Your eyes saw my unformed substance, in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them."

I cannot see how "Unformed substance" refers to a non physical state as you say.

The argument that God foreknew us even before we were conceived is another matter, and not what this Scripture covers.
---Warwick on 1/2/14


Warwick, when you used Psalm 139:16, your explanation gives the impression that God doesn't know who's who before conception, which is not what David's saying.

This particular verse you speaks explicitly that God predestined the life of David way before he even came to being. Or David wouldn't have written, "...and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them."

David's life was predestined by God, so too we are to believe and be convicted as David was about our life. This verse explicitly debunks the freewill doctrine wholesale. If you believe in the freewill, you shouldn't use this particular verse to speak what you're trying to say.

StrongAxe, murder is applied only to humans, not cows! Not simplistic but straight-forward.

As to when life begins lets listen to the only Authority. "Your eyes saw my unformed substance, in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them." Psalm 139:16. God sees the child distinctly, even before it has any form and before it has lived even one of the days "that were formed for me." Life begins at conception as that's when the "me" begins. Truly a miracle.

If you are to judge the worth of others beliefs you must stick to Scripture.

christan:

You said: Isn't the "trademark" of a Christian today one of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ? Is that not sufficient? Did Scripture say "Every Christian should have many miracles to share" proving that he's a Christian?

Very right!

John 13:35
"By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another."
Also, in Matthew 25, when Jesus separates the righteous from the wicked, his reward is for those who showed compassion, NOT for those who did many miracles.

When Elohyim - determined -appointed it.

Elohyim Exist.

Isaiah 55 [...]
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
[...]

Shalom.

The greatest of all miracles that mankind has seen (or heard of) and will ever see is the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ after His crucifixion at Calvary. Without His resurrection from the dead, Christians today would have no hope of eternal life with Him.

So why do many seek for themselves to be miracle performers when as Christians we were explicitly told "For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come." 1 Corinthians 11:26

Isn't the "trademark" of a Christian today one of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ? Is that not sufficient? Did Scripture say "Every Christian should have many miracles to share" proving that he's a Christian?
---christan on 12/31/13


Matthew, miracles happen when God wants them to happen. It doesn't take anyone faith for them to happen, or anyone's sharing the word for God to make a miracle happen. It is all of God. Just like salvation is all of God. He does what pleases Him, and for His own purpose. And since God is outside of time, all things have already happen concerning things in time. All is complete before His own eyes, the beginning and the end.
---Mark_V. on 12/31/13

"When did your god give you faith?" Bryan

"For by grace are ye SAVED THROUGH FAITH, and that not of yourselves: IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Ephesians 2:8,9 - furthermore, Hebrews 12:2 says, "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith". Can you understand the meaning of "author and finisher of our faith"?

Seriously, don't you read the Holy Bible? O correction, you do read the Bible but obviously something that Christ said hasn't occurred and that's the quickening work of the Spirit of God, since you claim you can generate your own faith.

O yes, my God is most definitely not your beggarly god.

steveng, when one is in unbelief of the Word, there's nothing that he says will ever change the fact that he's in unbelief, period.

Let's give in to your numbers theory and remove them from the Scriptures and read Exodus from the time Moses was born to where Pharaoh "hardened his own heart".

Would that negate the part when God told Moses to go to Pharaoh and demand that he let His people go and spoke these words to Moses, "And the Lord said unto Moses, When thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go."

So, which came first?
---christan on 12/30/13




christan wrote: "... no respect for order in numbers? Now I can truly appreciate the wisdom of God in giving us the Holy Bible in the order from the OT to the NT by books and more importantly chapters and verses with NUMBERS on them."

God did not divide the bible into verse and chapter numbers, man did. All the verse and chapter numbers were added only three hundred years ago. Think about this: would you write a letter (epistle) to a friend having verse numbers? Satan is behind this numbers "thing" only to confuse people/christians making misinterpretation of the bible easier. This is the reason why christian is broken up into tens of thousands of denominations - even based upon the same verse.
---Steveng on 12/30/13


christan you funny! When did your god give you faith? Do you know how to use it, or how it works? Or did your god give you something you don't have a clue about?
---BRYAN on 12/30/13


christan* Ruben, The Bible said, "but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go" - does this sound like a temptation?

Yes it does, when God sends both Moses and Aaron to tell Pharaoh to let his people go but he can't because God already harden his heart then that is tempting.

But scripture tell us God can not tempt no one, what you need to do is find out what does it mean " but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go" really mean?

christan * What happened to Pharaoh was simply God purposed that he will disobey His commands,!

Again scripture tell us God does not tempt anyone nor cannot be tempted by evil(james 1,12-15..What Pharaoh did was EVIL!!!
---Ruben on 12/30/13


shira - honestly, are you serious? Which came first? Exodus 4:21 or Exodus 9:34 in order, unless you're telling us you have no respect for order in numbers? Now I can truly appreciate the wisdom of God in giving us the Holy Bible in the order from the OT to the NT by books and more importantly chapters and verses with NUMBERS on them.

And why? So that we know that 1 comes before 2 and not 9 before 4, unless you're going backwards, which you and Ruben seem to do. Which on one hand sounds hilarious to a child as it gives a picture you can't count in the correct order while it's sad on the other that you deny the glory of God in His hardening of Pharaoh.

But truth be said, even then that's was not your call but God's to begin with.
---christan on 12/30/13


Ruben, you quote James 1:12 to justify that Pharaoh was being tempted? How so? I don't see anywhere in Exodus that God was tempting Pharaoh to disobey Him? The Bible explicitly said, "but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go" - does this sound like a temptation?

Let me give it straight to you according to Scripture, "Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass, I have purposed it, I will also do it." Isaiah 46:11

What happened to Pharaoh was simply God purposed that he will disobey His commands, and that's not temptation but God's will! Know the difference!
---christan on 12/30/13


Steven, we know your claim is with the Churches out there. You have made that very clear with all of your answers. You have to let it go. You have to forgive those from that church that did not help you when you needed. It was not satan who refused to give you help, it was some people who did not know what they were doing, and since then you have not stop condemning all of them. You say you teach in them, and maybe that is why they are teaching wrong, because you taught there. Did you ever think of that?
Why do you not share the word of God? Help others with what God has shown you. Why do you insist in putting blame on others? Let it go. You have to let it go.

Christian, pharaoh hardened his own heart many times but in the end God hardened his heart. God thru moses brought the plagues but pharaoh hardened his heart against God.
---shira4368 on 12/30/13


christan * God was the one who hardened Pharaoh's heart from the onset as He declared He was going to do in Exodus 4:21. Pharaoh then "harden his own heart" in Exodus 9:34 was the consequence of God's purpose and power over His creature.

First of all again Scripture tell us that God does NOT make or program Man to sin (James 1-12:15)

Second is God playing games by sending Moses and Aaron to Pharaoh to let his people go even though he can't because God had already hardened his heart, really!

christan & If anyone who denying the Scripture it's you. Correct me then, do you deny Exodus 4:21 to be true?

It is true, but your interpretation is wrong unless you are claiming to be infallible, are you?
---Ruben on 12/30/13


Ruben, don't add on to what I have written just like you always add-on to the Word of God at your own whim and fancy. Where in my reply did I say one "should ignore Exodus 9:34" or any verse from the Scriptures?

I was merely pointing to you Exodus 4:21 is the very cause of Exodus 9:34. In other words, God was the one who hardened Pharaoh's heart from the onset as He declared He was going to do in Exodus 4:21. Pharaoh then "harden his own heart" in Exodus 9:34 was the consequence of God's purpose and power over His creature.

If anyone who denying the Scripture it's you. Correct me then, do you deny Exodus 4:21 to be true? You just hate the idea God can control His creature as He wishes.

James_L wrote: "WRONG !!"

Go to a searchable KJV bible and search for the word "one another," "each other," "comfort," and "encourag." Does one truly perform these within a denominational church? Can these be perform without a denominational church?

The meaning of church today has lost its meaning. Satan has had over 2,000 years to infiltrate and divide the church up into tens of thousands of denominations. A newly born christian would definately be confused as to what church to belong and what church is the true church.

Cluny, does your church have any of the following?

1. Organized as a non-profit corporation
2. Real Estate holdings including commercial and rental property
3. Treasured art
4. Investments in other corporations/banks
5. Gold

How much money is spent maintaining all of the above?

Will your Orthodox church sell all it has to feed the poor?

Cluny wrote: "And "church" has been used as the English equivalent of "ecclesia" for centuries before you were born,.."

You disappoint me, Cluny. With all the worldly knowledge you claim you have you don't know the meaning of "ecclesia". Just because the word has been repeated often enough, it doesn't mean it's true. Look up the true meaning of that Greek word.
---Steveng on 12/29/13


\\I don't belong to any man-made worldly denominational church.\\

Yes, you do.

If it's not Orthodox, it's man-made, worldly, and denominational.

You simply re-define words. That's all you do.

And "church" has been used as the English equivalent of "ecclesia" for centuries before you were born, and will continue to be so used when you're a puddle of goo in your coffin.

christan * Hmm let's see. Exodus 4:21 says (mind you, this was written some five chapters before you demonstrated your ignorance in Exodus 9:34),

Hmm, Let's see, scripture does say that Phoraoh harden his heart but Christan needs to ignore that verse! Please explain to me why scripture would say this if it is not true?

Scripture is very clear that God does not program or make man to sin " When tempted, no one should say 'God is tempting me" God cannot be tempted by evil, NOR DOES HE TEMPT ANYONE."(Jas 1:12)

James is also clear when man sin it is because 'His own evil desires'( Jas 1:14)

Steven, you think you are so smart, but when you answer you are still wrong. Here you have told us that Satan created the denominations, now you say they are man made denominations. Make up your mind.
Now you want to redefine the word "church" so you can excuse your condemnations. Do you not know why the word "church" is use? So what Jesus said was a lie,
"upon This Rock I will build My Church" That Jesus was not talking about the gathering of believers, the "called out ones"? You are either a part of the Church or you are not. Where ever there is a gathering of believers it is called the church. And the "Called out one's" gather everywhere, not only at your house.

\\ Christianity is a lifestyle...//
---Steveng on 12/28/13

WRONG !!

That is one of the biggest deceptions used by Satan, and the biggest compromise that the church has made - outward appearances supplanting the inward working of the Holy Spirit

Christianity is a living HOPE. And that hope should drive our lifestyle (which isn't the same thing as moral behavior)

Only worldly people reduce the grace of God to a lifestyle first
---James_L on 12/29/13


Cluny wrote: "[Steveng] doesn't condemn his own worldly denominational church."

I don't belong to any man-made worldly denominational church. Denominational churches, the way it's used today, is the greatest deception created by Satan. Christianity is a lifestyle, the word "church" means nothing more than people, christians. With all the worldly knowledge that you claim to possess, Cluny, I figured that you would know that the word "church" does not exist in the true Word of God - the original Greek texts. Can you guess the Greek word that the translators replaced with "church?" Acts 19 are three words that are properly translated.

"Faith is the thing you use to get Gods' word to work in your life." Bryan

First and foremost, faith is not a "thing". Faith is a "gift of God", which causes the sinner to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, who's by the way is not a thing but a person! Are you a thing? Get it?

From what you say, your faith in your god is because you want him to be a genie and grant you three wishes. Well, that's not how the "gift of faith from God" works in the Christian life and if you study the Bible in its proper context, you'll know what I mean.

What more does a Christian want when he has received eternal life in Christ? Aren't you being ungrateful and greedy?

Mark why do you blame every thing that is not right on God, by saying "God allows"? The fact is he has give us his all, we are the ones with problem believe his word not him. Do you honestly believe that Jesus just gave us salvation to get to heaven only? The New Covenant gives us far more than just that. It makes us a child of God, Not a servant but a child big difference. When you understand this truth like a child you will start walking in the fullness of your salvation.

When Jesus came into the temple, open up the scripture and he found the place where it is written":Luke 4:17, Luke 4:18 Isaiah 61:1-3, Was Jesus Quoting Isaiah, he can't do that, he has the word all out of context, See how you argument falls, The scripture is life not law. It has laws in but they are for life not death. Be careful how you use them, you will reap what you sow with them. That is the law of the scripture. Jesus gives freedom to all. His mercy endures forever.

Steven, don't you condemn all denominations? Christians gather in all denominations. We do not have separate churches with their own name as was in the beginning. You even claim the enemy created those denominations when it was human beings who did. Do you not understand that believers gather in them mixed with the tares? God permits the enemy to plant tares in the church. The church of Christ cannot be overcome by the forces of hell (Matt. 16:18) and is made up of those who belong to God they are sealed. Which is a symbol of ownership and authenticity. But you condemn all of them including those who are sealed by the Spirit. I hear you everyday condemning them all. Now who is lying?

Honestly, each day and all it has is a miracle from God. God moves with your prayer life to teach, encourage, and grow you. God remains the same no matter what you believe about Him or how strongly you believe it, and knowing the beginning from the end, your prayers are wonderful times God made for you and Him to spend time together, and who knows what good He has decided to attribute to you solely because you prayed. The more honest with yourself you become the more you will see God already moving in your life, and yes, those times of extreme miracles do come, "so that your faith may be based on God's power rather than human argument." However, that does not excuse doubt until then because, "men are without excuse."
---Caleb on 12/27/13


Strongaxe, I disagree with Steven's interpretation of the passage, and disagree he can do greater works then Jesus Christ. For anyone to believe someone who condemns the gathering of believers, that he does greater works then Jesus, that person would have to be completely nuts.
When the passage says greater works then Jesus, Jesus did not mean greater works in power, but in extent. They, the (disciples), would become witnesses to all the world through the power of the indwelling and infilling of the Holy Spirit and would bring many to salvation.
But no, Steven wants to take credit for himself, the power he says he has, that we will not believe. Jesus Christ created the heavens and the earth, can Steven do greater works then Christ?

RICHARDC That is one of the cools verse in the bible.
Romans 12:3 "God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith". he said every man, not just born again man but every man. That makes it so easy to share the Gospel knowing that my faith your faith or from the same God and we have the same measure of it.
---BRYAN on 12/27/13


steveng & strongaxe, read the context of John 14:12 properly. That reference Christ was making was to the apostles and disciples present before Him or Christ wouldn't have said, "because I go unto my Father", clearly implying to them of His impending death and crucifixion that was to come.

The canon was yet to be compiled at that time. Today we have the Holy Bible complete, nothing to be added nor taken away. "For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith."

Miracles were performed before unbelievers as an indication the apostles and disciples were from Christ. Today we have the Bible, what fake miracles do you have?

Mark if you want God's power to flow out of the like it is suppose to. You have to speak it out your mouth. You have the word in you, or you have the seeds of the word in you, what you believe about the word produces in your life. God said as a man thinks in his heart so shall it be. Jesus came and gave us back what we lost though Adam. If you only believe half, that's ok. Stop it with the telling people they can only believe half like you. Some will believe 30% of it some will believe 60% of it and then there is those who will believe 100% of the word and sow it that way.

Bryan, you are making things up as you go. You first say, God needs his seed in you, which is false. God is in need of nothing, He is self-sufficient. Then say:
"God is not setting in heaven worried about either. His word will produce life or death. And that will be based on how you sow it." Salvation is not base on what a person does, but on what God does. Then say,
" Understanding the first parable Jesus taught us, you can see what will happen to the word of God when you hear it." in the parables Jesus is affirming that the ability to comprehend spiritual truth is a gracious gift of God, sovereignly bestowed on the elect. The reprobates are passed over. They reap the consequences of their own unbelief.
---Mark_V. on 12/26/13


Miracles are not necessarily dependent upon faith.
Lazarus was raised so that they might believe.
Parting of the Red Sea was done without mainstream faith.
Yet, Jesus did do wonders and said, "thy faith has made thee whole."
All in all, miracles are for belief, not usually from it.

If you don't believe in miracles you will no share about miracles. This is not meet to be used for evil, this is for the Glory of God "You will reap what you sow" Sow the Gospel. It will produce in your life.

Bryan thank you for your comment and yes I do thank Jesus for her faith because she taught me to have faith too. When I was afraid or upset she would get the Bible and read the Word to me and it comforted me. I am really blessed to have been given the parents God so carefully chose for me. Mom prayed for over a year for God to give her a baby and praise the Lord it was me. Mom is 95 now still believes in the Lord and prayer and I still give her prayer requests. Blessings

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also, and greater works than these shall he do, because I go unto my Father. John 14:12

ALL, not just some, scripture is for the edification of the church. When Christ, the apostles, and all the other godly people spoke to a certain person or a certain group of people we, as christians, should learn and do as what all is spoken.

Witnessing or preaching is not a miracle. Prophesying and miracles are the proof of God's existance.

For those who do not believe that prophets exist today and that miracles don't happen have only the knowledge of God but deny his power.

Oh, ye of little faith.
---Steveng on 12/23/13


Bryan, don't flatter yourself. There's nothing edifying from you. It's always about yourself and nothing to do with the Holy Spirit that's leading the sinner.

For example, how do you even follow the "spirit of life in Christ" if you're not "born of the Spirit by the will of God"? Do you even believe that "being born of the Spirit" has nothing to do with the sinner will (which in the first place to begin with is dead?) but that it's God who decides who to give His Spirit to from eternity?

There's nothing to follow in the law of sin and death, and that's because we're all considered dead in trespass and sin the day we come into this world. Or do you not even believe in that?

steven, the greatest miracle a saved person can do is to witness to someone and they are saved. when God can reach to your heart and do a conversion, what is greater than that? Im not speaking of Jesus resurrected but how God can change a heart and life and what makes that so wonderful is you absolutely know it.

"Christians are to do greater miracles than Jesus." steveng

O really? Can you top the resurrection of Jesus Christ ( in which He conquered death), or is that not the greatest of all the miracles Christ performed, since you say "Christians are to do greater miracles than Jesus."

By the ways, do enlighten us what "great miracles" have you been performing since you became a "Christian"? Cured someone's tummy ache? Or headache? Or better still, have you raised someone from the dead yet?

christan, Where you coming from, do you follow the law of sin and death or do you follow the spirit of life in Christ Jesus Who sets you free from those laws. The first parable Jesus taught to the believe or his follow was the one of the sower. It makes it the most important one if you don't understand it Jesus said, "How will you understand anything I'm trying to teach you".

Darlene_1 Your Mom has great faith. Thank you Jesus
---BRYAN on 12/22/13


Nothing will be impossible for those who believe.

Christians are to do greater miracles than Jesus.

So, when do miracles occur?

They occur only when you allow God to work through you. It's just that simple.
---Steveng on 12/22/13


Bryan, here's how erroneous your understanding of the Scripture that says, "you sow what you reap". Paul never meant to exalt the freewill of the man. Never at all if you compare to the rest of Scriptures.

Firstly, this is what God declared, "Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass, I have purposed it, I will also do it." Isaiah 46:11

Pharaoh acted out in unbelief/disobedient to God, clearly was purposed by God as declared above. What Pharaoh sowed in unbelief, he reaped the wrath of God. God stands Holy and sovereign even though it was His will and purpose Pharaoh disobeyed. Go figure.

Miracles come when you need them the most and have faith ,without wavering,to pray and ask God for them,you cannot doubt at all. My Mom saw a man laying on the ground,she turned back and and parked and ask a man standing over him if he was dead,he answered "He's not breathing". Mom didn't even touch him but prayed with hand above him. The man's back arched off the ground like struck by lightening and began breathing,he was alive. Mom never doubted she saw a need,said "I've got to pray for him" thinking when she turned and stopped that he may be dead. God answered because she believed He would without doubt.

The Kashuroth were greatly concerned with what to eat, drink, or wear.

The Pharisees' laws even extended to these things.

Matthew, miracles happen when God wants them to happen or when He wants them to be miracles. It does not depend on man at all. It depends on God. Many do think they can motive are influence God to do things for them, but I believe this people are under the impression they can control God in some way. It is God who gives life and It is God who takes it away. Everything is under His control. He is also the restrainer of sin. Without God man would destroy himself. Everything is controlled by the Word of God.

christan You forget parts of the scripture to fit your beliefs. Jesus said what you sow is what you will reap. Sow disbelief in the power of and the Gift of the Hole Spirit. Then don't expect to receive them in your life. God is not mocked (Galatians 6:7) Preventing Jesus I don't think so I just follow him He shows me thinks that have been hidden sense the foundation of the world, Matthew 13:34, Mark 4:13 Luke 8:11 Sowing it opens it's mysteries, Sowing condemn nation and judgment never opens any thing from heaven.
---BRYAN on 12/22/13


Bryan, you just perverted Matthew 6:33 with your doctrine of works and turn God into a debtor to the man.

Read in context from Matthew 6:25-32. What Jesus is basically saying is when one becomes a Christian, their heart should be set on the kingdom of God first as their priority, being a child of God (and o how many times we fail at this, I know I do).

A sobering reminder is then mentioned, "For after all these things do the Gentiles seek". What you are saying is if we want something from God, we should seek for His kingdom first - and that's not what Matthew 6:33 is teaching. You're just a Gentile pretending to be a Christian.
---christan on 12/21/13


God said If you do my will first, and all the thinks the world seek for will be added unto you. Matthew 6:32,33. What is your need? Your need would be first doing his will.
---BRYAN on 12/21/13


Miracles happen when GOD wants them to happen. What you do has nothing to do with when HE makes a miracle happen. Silly people to think that their actions can make God do miracles.

"Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe." 1 Corinthians 14:22

"Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail, whether there be tongues, they shall cease, whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away." 2 Corinthians 13:8

There's no greater gift from God than faith in Jesus Christ to the sinner. Why then does one who claims to be a Christian seeks for miracles in their life when they already believe in Christ and are blessed with eternal life?
---christan on 12/20/13


If you believe accord to the word of God. Whatsoever you sow you will reap. If you believe in miracles and if you are praying for people who need then to receive them. Then according to the word you should receive them in your life to. These are things the Apostles taught us. Mark 4, this was a parable Jesus taught us how the kingdom of Heaven works If you sow it, you will grow it in your life. Mark 4:21-32, Think about this truth some people say God doesn't do that any more, the seed is in it's self, that is what you are sowing then that is what you are growing in your belief. No miracles no power. That will be your fruit from the kingdom of God. Change your seed change your fruit. To produce Gods' perfect will in your life
---BRYAN on 12/20/13


I'm not too sure what you mean by "miracles" in your question.

However, I've learned that the purpose of prayer and faith is not to make God do what you want, but to get yourself in touch with Him.

And when THAT happens--you'll see many miracles that you might not have noticed.

Does this help?

Glory to Jesus Christ!
