Son Of God Or Is He God
  
Warwick,
You thoroughly missed what I said about what the Holy Ghost reveals as opposed to looking up a word.
The words mean what he says by his Spirit.
When Jesus said destroy this temple those who knew Hebrew and Aramaic better than you thought he was talking about the literal temple.
He meant his body.
He reveals by the Spirit what he says a word means.
And there is a difference in the light of the first day and the lights of the 4th day.
Read it again.
But believe what you want.
I don't have any more time to waste on scholars.
I revealed through an abundance of scripture Jesus is the Son.
Not my fault the mods won't post them.
My conscience is clear.
Bye.


Son Of God Or Is He God
  
I gave two more examples that were not posted. They too bear witness that Jesus is the Son of God.

Warwick,
I don't have Jesus creating himself. The when God said let there be light he spake Jesus into existence. A Father can create the Son but a father is not a son. There is a difference between the light of day 1 and the lights of day 4 that show the importance of each.
As for the meaning of words by the concordance and such remember that when Jesus said temple he meant his body and the scribes and pharisees who knew the meaning of Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic better than any of us did not realize his word means whatever he says. That is why the carnal mind cannot grasp what the Spirit reveals.
Hope this helps.
May God bless.


Son Of God Or Is He God
  
John 17:20,21
[20] Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word,
[21] That they all may be one, as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

This makes it clear that being one is in Spirit or in unity.
Otherwise we would be God according to the prayer of Jesus.

Oneness is a unity of the faith and Spirit whereby all Christians should believe and speak the same things which they obviously do not due to doctrinal differences and false teachings and the spirit of err and the carnal mind of man.


Son Of God Or Is He God
  
Someone asked about Jesus being created.

Revelation 3:14
[14] And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God,

We see Jesus being spoken into existence as the beginning of God's creation.

Genesis 1:3
[3] And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

The light on the first day is different from the light on the fourth day. (vs.5)

Genesis 1:16,19
[16] And God made two great lights, the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
[19] And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.


Son Of God Or Is He God
  
Jesus said himself he is not God.

John7:28
[28] Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.

John 20:17
[17] Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not, for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father, and to my God, and your God.

Revelation 5:7
[7] And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.

He did not send himself.
He did not ascend unto himself.
He did not take the book out of his own hand.


Do God's Ways Make Sense
  
The Lord's ways and thoughts will only make sense to those who are born again of the Spirit. To those who do not look at them with the carnal mind or man's ways.
The Bible says lean not unto thine own understanding but acknowledge him in all thy ways.
Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 2 that ways of God are foolishness to man. The spirit of man seeks the things of man.
It is the Spirit of God that seeks the things of God. By his Spirit these things make perfect sense to those led of the Spirit.


Healed By God Over Time
  
Remember the man that Jesus touched who saw men as trees walking? Jesus touched him again and his sight was made whole.
That man didn't come unto the Lord himself but was brought by others.
I personally believe that sometimes our lack of faith can hinder or cause a person to be healed in time rather than at once.
Also, John said He must increase and I must decrease. There are some of us that see the Lord increase in us and as he does the good Lord heals various parts of our bodies as well as healing our spirit. This I believe falls within growing in faith from a babe to child to full age.
In my life I have had some areas healed over time as I came to a further understanding.


Tell Us More About Yourself
  
I am a 54 year old disabled evangelist. I live and hold church services in Illinois. I also do nursing home services and home church services aside from the church services.
Candice, my wife and I visit a Mennonite Church in Arthur Illinois. We have some dear friends there and love to visit.
Not much else to add. I love the Lord first and foremost. I have been married to the woman the Lord brought to me. Waiting for the Spirit of God to bring a man and woman together does work. My better half plays the bass for my services at times and blessed me with 2 children, a son and a daughter.


Satan Has Access To Heaven
  
The word says that Satan came to accuse Job but it does not say he was "in" heaven at the time. He did come from the earth to the Lord. That is true.
But, the word also says many times the king sat in the gate. It also says nothing unclean shall enter.
There is that chance that when he presented himself to the Lord to accuse Job it was outside the gate.


Obedient To An Angry Husband
  
There are certain responsibilities that a man must perform to be a husband that a wife should submit to.
Just as Peter said Shall we hearken unto you instead of God the wife should submit to her husband unless he is engaged in adultery, abusive behavior (physical), slothfulness, etc...
Leaving because she disagrees with him or because he gets mouthy with her isn't scriptural.
It says If the unbelieving depart, let him depart. If he hates you now that you are returning to Christ it is up to him to depart unless your life is endangered or such.
I have seen the devil move on a spouse of one who returns to the Lord just to hinder the spouse returning. And sometimes they end up coming around as well if the returning spouse is patient.


Baptize A Second Time
  
Baptism is not really the answer for a difference of faith with marriage.
I have seen guys go to church just to get a chick and then when they get baptized and the two are married the guy makes life hell for the girl.
A person getting baptized without truly repenting first comes up nothing more than a wet sinner.
There is no change and Christ is not the center of their marriage.
Be careful.
I have seen lives ruined and souls lost over this.


Baptize A Second Time
  
V
Baptism is an outward display of a clean conscience after repentance.
There is no forgiveness until after repentance.
The children of Israel were always commanded to marry within Israel. True Christians should marry true Christians after the Holy Ghost (not the lust of the flesh) has led the right man and woman together.
For this to work out both need to repent, be baptized and live with Christ first and foremost in their life.
Christening a baby is not scriptural as a baby does not know that it is a sinner needing Christ to make the atonement for it's sin and able to repent.


Hurt By A Church
  
Josephine,
All who have truly been called and sent of God as lambs among wolves have been mocked and ridiculed, defamed and suffered. Read about the apostles who were beaten, stoned, had trials of cruel mocking and such. Paul shared many of his trials and such.
Those who have it the easiest probably do so because they walk hand in hand with satan.
If you are truly called and ordained of God keep going and know that others before you shared the same discouragements. Many have been stopped along the way but many received the crown of life after their pilgrimage was over.


What Is Sanctification
  
To be sanctified is to be set apart and made holy unto the Lord by the Spirit of God and the blood of the cross.
Jesus said sanctify them by thy truth and thy word is truth. He also said he sanctifies himself so they can be sanctified by the truth. He is the way, the truth and the life.
We are sanctified through Christ, the one mediator between man and God.


All Of Bible Doesn't Apply
  
The word says Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and for ever more.
He is the manifestation of the word and is suitable for reproof, doctrine and instruction unto every generation.


Can Satan Imitate God
  
It is not wise to call speaking in tongues of the devil.
The Lord said that he that speaks against the Holy Ghost never has forgiveness. Since scripture was the recording of holy men of God who spake as the Holy Ghost gave utterance speaking against scripture is blasphemy of the Holy Ghost.
When that scripture reveals speaking in tongues it is better to answer nothing than damn one's self in pride.
The devil does imitate the Lord and his word but some things are scripturally sound and not to be spoken against.


Living A Godly Life Rare
  
The word says in Psalms Thy Spirit is good and Jesus said God is good.
To live a good life is to live with Christ in your life and to be led of the Spirit.
The word says if ye be risen with Christ seek those things which are above where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
Not material things.
The word says he has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.
When you see Blessed is he or Blessed is the man written in Psalms they refer to spiritual things.
Not carnal blessings drummed up by man's darkened heart and spiritually blinded mind.


Do You Go To Church Of Christ
  
I have been a part of the Church of Christ for many years. I appreciate by backgroud and strong bible teachings. The thing that concerns me about "the church of christ" and almost any conservative bible church today is that: they practice adultery,, adulters do not make it to heaven, they must repent of this to get right with God.


Can I Marry A Poor Man
  
Ask the right question. Has this man been married before or have you been married before? Is the first partner still living in either case. If the answer is no: then go ahead if it is another Christian. If the answer is Yes: Be fully warned that you are committing adultery.


Catholics Marry In A Church
  
Good question: I am wondering have you been previously married to a first mate? If you are entering a second marriage in this case:the protesant church says its OK, the catholic church says "wait in line for an annulment" The Bible says that you would be committing adultery. Would the loss of your salvation be worth it, as adulters do not make it into the kingdom of God.
