I See Spirits All The Time
  
You have a gift, like mentioned previously of discernment. I can feel spirits myself but cannot see them but I have met other Christians who can see them. You see both Angels and demons. It's very common sense that you need to pray when the dark ones congregate around you. Fasting and prayer may be required also. Sometimes God allows Christians to go through spiritual afflictions from the enemy- I have been through this also. But it only lasts a season.


Location Of Armageddon
  
The last battle is mentioned by many prophets.
For example Zechariah 12-14, Ezekiel 38-39,
Revelation 16:13-21 & 19:11-21.

Eze 39:8 "Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD, this is the day whereof I have spoken."


Is The Apostate Church Around
  
For those who hold that the Bible is the final authority in spiritual matters, let me remind you that the Catholic Church canonized the Bible and asserts that sacred tradition and the magisterium are also to be sought in determining such matters. In short, apart from the Catholic Church we would have no Bible...or at least no New Testament.


Can The Devil Talk To Your Mind
  
Satan can only use your experiences and what you know. He is a joke.


Neglecting My Husband
  
If you love the man, pray that he gets his rest. Support him. After you have asked God to help, Satan will attack you with any old habits. Rebuke him and declare that you are past that milestone...all in the Blessed Name of Jesus..!! Getting angry is caused by that. Try this one: Every time as soon you feel anger comming up inside, you say: "Thank you Jesus, you are in my heart". That devil will leave you forever! Try it, it works!!


Why Are There So Many Churches
  
Like the religious leaders of Jesus' day, most people don't want to abandon their own doctrines, read God's Word exactly as written, and go to God only on His terms. Many people just want something to believe. But God has magnified His Word above all His Name (Psalm 138:2). He didn't do that with our opinions. Read 1 Cor. 1:10-3:23 for God's opinion of the envy, strife, and division that lead to denominations. God bless you! Write me. jeffr5976 :)


Humor Blog #6
  
An older, country fellow went to the city for the first time in his life with his wife and son. While she was shopping, he and his son saw a dumpy, old gal go into a little room. The doors shut and numbers above the doors lit up one by one. After a few minutes, the doors opened and out walked the most beautiful woman the fellow had ever seen! He didn't take his eyes off her; he just said, "Boy, go git yer ma."


God Alone Exists Truly
  
Sounds like an ancient Bhuddist philosophy. Where does it say that in the Word of God?

Jeremiah 2:13:
For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, {and} hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.


God Blessing Are Spiritual
  
Of course I disagree! If all of God's blessings were spiritual, not physical or material, then why did God favor ancient Israel; why did He take them out of slavery and give them land; why did Jesus and other men of God heal people; and why does God want us to prosper and be in health (3 John 2)?

I agree that God is no respecter of persons, even if they have more stuff, but I know of no scripture that says "God is not partial".


Once Saved Always Saved
  
Please allow me to explain why Calvin was correct.

1) Ephesians 1:5. Explains quite clearly that we were CHOSEN prior to creation of earth.

2) John 10:28. Explains that no one can snatch us from Jesus' hand. This is a promise from God.

3) 2 Peter 1:10 This means that we are "elect" and "called" by God.

4) Romans 11:6 Explains grace, not works, saves us. The words cannot mean actions = salvation; actions represent thanksgiving.


Is The Trinity Concept Made Up
  
Since the Bible, as originally written, is God's Word and since God can't lie, correct doctrine must fit with every part of the original scripture.
How does the phrase, "the God of our Lord Jesus Christ" from Ephesians 1:17 fit with your doctrine?


Do We Have A Freewill

By the way, it's not that we can't believe in Jesus without the grace of God; it's that without the grace of God, there would be no Jesus to believe in!

We can believe anything we want! We can believe a pickle will get us to heaven, but it's not true.

Without the grace of God, Jesus would not have come to redeem us and we would die in our sins with no possible way to have everlasting life, no matter what we believed!


Do We Have A Freewill

What's the purchased possession? We are! God bought us with the life of His only begotten son, Jesus Christ!

What's our inheritance? Part of it is our new, immortal, incorruptible bodies and the freedom from our old man nature!


Do We Have A Freewill

Eph 1:13-14:
In whom ye also {trusted}, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

Our holy spirit is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession.


Do We Have A Freewill

2 Cor 1:22:
Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

Notice our holy spirit is an earnest, which is a token. An earnest is something that's given to represent a performance of something greater, like when you submit an offer on a house, you put earnest money with it. And if the offer is accepted, you're going to pay much more.

Our holy spirit is an earnest because there's something greater. If it were God, how could there be anything greater?


Do We Have A Freewill

1 Cor 14:32:
And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.

Notice the spirit God gave us is subject to us, but God is not.

Eph 2:10:
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Eph 4:24:
And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

Notice He created the new man which is part of us. That's His gift, our holy spirit.


Do We Have A Freewill

Acts 10:45:
And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Many people don't know the difference between soul and spirit. Before God gave us His gift of holy spirit, we were only body and soul; we had no spirit.

Many people also mix up the Giver and His gift. God, who is The Holy Spirit, can dwell within us because of His Gift of holy spirit.

Tina, 'sub-Christian'? Aren't we a bit quick to condemn? But since you obviously researched the subject thoroughly before answering, perhaps you can tell me where I've misunderstood God's Word.

God is Holy (Lev 19:2;20:26) and God is Spirit (John 4:24), but God gave us a gift, which is also holy spirit.

Acts 2:38:
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Now, if you're saying we weren't able to always choose to do good before being born again, I'll agree, because we had Adam's sin nature from birth. And neither are we yet able!

But, because of Jesus' sacrifice, our choice was and is not to do good or evil, but to believe God or not. And man has always been able to believe anything he wants to as evidenced by the variety of opinions here and elsewhere.

Just as Abraham believed God and it was accounted to him for righteousness, so do we.
