Explain Romans 9:6-7
They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the CHILDREN OF THE PROMISE ARE COUNTED for the seed. EVEN US, WHOM HE HATH CALLED He saith "I WILL CALL THEM MY PEOPLE, which were not my people, and her beloved, which was not beloved." And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, THERE SHALL THEY BE CALLED THE CHILDREN OF THE LIVING GOD whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. Rom 9:23-26

THE MOST HIGH divided to the nations their inheritance, the LORD'S PORTION IS HIS PEOPLE,

"Our declaration of The Word of God is confessed in faith -- this world is subject to time, however, the victory has been won within God's Timeless existence. Rom 10.
Confessing the Lord Jesus is declaring The Word of God. Believing in our hearts[true knowing] God bears witness to His Word, Agreement/Confirming.

Within this time/frame we overcome in Spirit/truth. Within God/Word is the Victory--Confessed/believed."
char on 5/7/12
Amen. I'll repeat: "we overcome in Spirit/truth. Within God/Word is the Victory--Confessed/believed"
Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. All praise and glory due Him alone

---aka on 4/30/12 Very interesting contrast.
Thank you aka and Josef, I truly appreciate your responses, and thank God for His Truth. Ive been out of state with siblings, their spouses and my father, and prior to that caring for my grandsons. I hope to catch up and respond more soon. there's much here...God bless you

Aka, praise God, He is the armor, the Victor and victory. He HAS triumphed.
Had posted NIV, but prefer KJV. In vs 5, what often comes to mind is 'VAIN imaginations', but I see that neither version says that. Ill have to see if another does

Josef, amen. Some questions/comments. Where does warfare take place? In heavenlies, in our own minds, against the lies of enemies spoken by others, whether Christian with a false belief in an area or unbelievers.? Christ, the Christian and the battle are in or take place in heavenly places. Eph 1:3, Eph 1:20,, Eph 2:6, Eph 6:12., it seems that the battle includes taking thoughts captive(I take this to include my own thoughts)and we are transformed by the renewing of the mind, with the WORD. Rom 12:2
And be not conformed to this world: (carnal) but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,
"And this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith." More on overcome...

2 Cor 10 "For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh,for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but DIVINELY powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ"

"You are looking at things as they are outwardly. If anyone is confident in himself that he is Christs, let him consider this again within himself, that just as he is Christs, so also are we. For even if I boast somewhat further about our authority, which the Lord gave for BUILDING YOU UP AND NOT FOR DESTROYING YOU, I will not be put to shame"

Parables, Literal Or Figurative
I never even thought about the possibility of "guidelines" (mans?)in interpreting scripture/parables. Early on, taught certain things(mans interpretations), but the Holy Spirit GUIDES, as He teaches us all things and leads us into (all) truth. He leads into other scriptural witness in the Word

Nice To Meet You
Mary, Thank you, God bless you too. "Some people have told me I got cancer for various weird reasons but God only REALLY knows why we did! And He loves us, that much I know"
People, even we ourselves, can tell us all sorts of things, but what most matters is what God tells us, and to replace/renew the thinking with the Word, for the Word alone is Truth. Our individual battles may take different forms, such as cancer, but youre right, He loves us through all, and all for His purpose and glory. It is good news that you are finished with radiation! Perserverance comes to mind. Rom 5:3,4 2 Thes 3:5, James 1:2-4 James 5:10,11. Again, Bless you, and praise God!

Nice To Meet You
Elena, "He gave me a new attitude! He is the Lord!... NOT me!
He has made me know I am nothing without Him.No $ can replace His love,no car,nothing!"
Praise God, this is the truth. Many blessings Elena, and May He keep you in perfect peace in Him.

Healed From Bi-Polar Disorder
Trish, Rockey, I totally agree with what you wrote Trish. Still, I believe God can do what He chooses and heal. When I say I believe theres a spiritual aspect to all, I am saying in addition to the physiological, not negating that at all. Also, I am not speaking necessarily of demonic possession. The spiritual realm, although not tangible, is just as real, and all sickness/disease is a result of the fall and subsequent curse. Everything has a purpose, and its ultimately Gods purpose that truly matters, and that most definitely is spiritual.

I Need Encouragement
mj on 9/23/11, Psalm 46:10 "He says,BE STILL, and KNOW THAT I AM GOD"
At about 2:30 am 9/24 I awoke when the "storm" rolled in, and it was not pretty, however, I immediately started to pray this, and was reminded of Mark 4:39 "He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, Quiet! BE STILL! Then the wind died down and IT WAS COMPLETELY CALM." Immediately I had an inner calm and sense of the Lords presence, so waited, and He calmed the storm without. All I did was to be still,knowing that He is God, I looked my son in the eyes, and he backed down, jaw open, turned and went to sleep. When hes in a drunken rage it can last a LONG time and can be very frightening. BTW, he found a place to live, praise God.

Whites Have Black Baby
Jim, This apparently is a difficult time for you, wondering about the possibility of your wife being unfaithful, as well as your concern about what others might think. DNA testing will answer some questions, however, more important, is to take all to the Lord. These circumstances are no accident, and the Lord brings out that which needs to be brought into light. Allow Him to work in you that which He desires. He is faithful and is able to see you through. Blessings, and may you find strength, comfort and peace in HIM.

I Need Encouragement
---mj on 9/23/11 Amen and thank you. In prayer about all, specifically how, received the following in an devotional email:
"Isaiah 52:12 For ye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: for the LORD will go before you, and the God of Israel [will be] your reward.
. Never need the bride of Christ, when arrayed in her battledress, proceed anxiously to meet the enemy. Nor shall she flee from villainous hoards, defeated and brought low. She is the queen of God's right hand and ever shall He protect her comings and goings, guarding her both before and behind, and ever granting her sword arm the full measure of His omnipotent strength. Rejoice in the Lord! Rejoice"

I Need Encouragement
I could use prayer and encouragement. I need to separate myself and minor children from certain ungodly influences. 2 Cor 6 "come out from among them, and be ye separate." The Lord has worked many changes in our lives in recent months, including my
Separating from "friends" who had a negative impact on our lives. This time its my older son, who is controlling, verbally abusive, threatening. He'd moved home after college, is supposed to be moving out, however, certain issues have come up and I feel I need to do something as soon as possible.
If I cannot get him to leave, then I want to take my minors and leave, but Im unsure where to go. We were supposed to be moving soon, but it no longer appears to be soon enough

Back Slidden Heaven Bound
---Mark_V. on 9/13/11, great answer, I especially like "The reason faith in Jesus Christ the eternal Son of God is so important and different then just following the laws is that faith in Christ brings glory to God" So true. Bless you.

What Is Your Biggest Fear
"Chris thank you for reminding me that the perfect love of God for me will cast away my fear.I need to focus more on God and not on situations.
---mj on 9/12/11"
You're not alone there.
Col 3:1-4 "1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory."

Pray Before Respond To Blogs
aka, I am glad to hear that cnet has so blessed you. It has been a great blessing to me also. I too prefer this to fb, the level, or depth of exchange is far greater, despite the issues at hand.

Poppa Bear (great name), thanks for posting this. the subject has come up before, but bears repeating. We all ought to seek to do God's will here, and that would require prayer, being led of the Spirit, and seasoned with the love of Christ, just as you said.
