When Jesus was tested in the wilderness, no gymnastic training was necessary...KNOWING THE WORD OF GOD WAS, and having The Holy Spirit, and having the wisdom and knowledge that Comes from God to begin with does.

No longer I but Christ who lives in me is where ALL MY STRENGTH comes from. Faith is simply believing God and taking Him at His word. I'm strengthened with all might in the inner man ...Ephesians 3:13-27, and Colossians 1:11 .

FOR HE Is able to do abundantly above and beyond all We could possibly ask or think according to HIS POWER that WORKETH in us, TO HIM BE THE GLORY..VERSE 20

My strength is made perfect in your weakness 2 Cor 12:9 .

Predestined For Hell
Romans 8:29 -......
---RichardC on 7/20/19

Now to truly understand this verse, one needs to understand what THE FIRSTBORN means. Jesus was not the FIRST to be Born Again. It means PREEMINENCE ...surpassing all other, having a place of superiority . which is what the CALLING OUT OF THE CHURCH, as we IN CHRIST, His Church, not earthly Israel will have a place surpassing all other ..and will share in His Glory, as joint heirs with Christ. it has nothing to do with salvation vs the lost, but that the CHURCH has a HIGHER CALLING in this dispensation of the Gospel.
Many will be saved from Genesis to Rev, but will not have this HIGHER CALLING. This my friends IS THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO THE "MYSTERY" .

Nicole, for the very last time. Lent is a man-made tradition. I do not need lent to fast, public, private or in a group. Deal with it. Move on.

Jesus Action Rewards
Nicole, lent is not in the bible. Many people fast in private, between them and the Lord ONLY, praying for some specific answer or need, as we see in the NT as well, and a "lent" is never mentioned. People fasted in the OT and no one had to wait until a so called LENT or whatever to do so.

Even in the Gospels, when they fasted, it was not during a "lent". That is something you all made up.

Just because one does not believe in a LENT, doesn't mean they don't believe in fasting. One is not the other. Please know that.

Nicole, I believe those scriptures absolutely, and yes spiritual warfare is real, and as we abide in Christ we overcome by FAITH IN HIM, putting on the whole ARMOUR of God, as we are taught in scripture. So to me, it's a life, also deeply lived in Galatians 2:20-21 Romans 6-8 and Colossians 2-3. I would say because you have never lived in reality the verses above, you are trying to say you are living them only 40 days a year, ( called will worship) and think for some reason it's the same thing. NO ! it's not. Because the reality of the verses above cannot be self induced or self imitating . It's something the Lord Himself brings you through BY FAITH, not a 40 day imposed self humility.

Baptism In The Epistles
1 Corinthians 1:16 And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized any other. 17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.AKA 1 Corinthians 2:5 Don't put your faith in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

The verse in no way says baptism dethrones the preaching of the CROSS. The POWER is not in baptism or communion, but the preaching of the CROSS. The GOSPEL is not baptism or communion, yet the RCC has made both communion and Baptism the power of salvation. Just because they perverted it, doesn't mean everyone has.

Nicole, lent ONLY TO YOU is trying to compare Jesus 40 days in the wilderness TO YOUR MADE UP LENT, thinking you've created a wonderful MOCK comparison. Everything you all do seem to MOCK the Word of God.

Did you too wrestle with Satan , and then after are attended by the Angels? Did Satan offer YOU the whole world and all the kingdoms if you bowed down and worshipped him? OH THE FOOLISHNESS of diminishing what happened in that wilderness. Why not just have a personal day you all nail yourselves to the cross day?

As I said before, we don't see ANYONE in scripture as we read the NT written up to 30-40 -50 years after Jesus died and rose again speak of any lent or saints days.

Jesus Action Rewards
Well what we do know Cluny, it didn't begin with the early church, as Peter, Paul John James etc etc say nothing about a lent or abstaining from meat. Actually the opposite. It contradicts Colossians 2-3 to its very core. WHAT, you don't obey scripture..only man made traditions?

Loved Ones Are In Hell
I believe Jesus said every teary eye will be dried. No one is going to be looking at anyone in hell from heaven. The verse in Luke was before the cross, before Jesus was the FIRST TO ENTER THE HOLY OF HOLIES AKA HEAVEN with His own blood. I know Calvinists here have stated God is so blood thirsty that He along with us will I guess get some sort of kick out of seeing this suffeting. This is false doctrine....and sick to its core.

Wrong again. It's spelled us. No such word as uis.

Baptism In The Epistles
Well we see in Ephesians 4 gifts are given, evangelism being one. Billy Graham was an evangelist, I doubt personally baptized every single person who came forward. But let's say he did, vs some other big kahona. Then people would be divided, just as we see different denominations divide, as is what ALL OF 1CORINTHIANS IS ABOUT. They didn't have denominations, but men bringing the Gospel. Read all of 1 Corinthians 1-4 to get a clearer idea of what the argument was about. IT WASN'T ABOUT BAPTISM VS NONBAPTISM. And Paul never makes the argument THE CHURCH does not need baptism.

Don't take paul's words out of context.

Genesis 1:29 was before sin, still naked in the Garden of Eden. As I said before. No such verse exists after sin entered. And it's not a command. The only command was not to eat the fruit from the tree of good and evil.

Predestined For Hell
God predestined us, That is His Body, aka "THE CHURCH", to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ . This is our sanctification not our initial salvation or justification. Please read the verses carefully. Ephesians more fully explain He will present to Himself a Church without spot or wrinkle Ephesians 5:27. But to fully understand you need to understand the CHURCH is not earthly Israel, but a whole NEW CREATURE. All of Ephesians explains, but you have to be heavenly minded to understand.

Baptism In The Epistles
Well actually Cluny Emersion means coming out of water AFTER FIRST BEING SUBMERGED.

Peter in his epistle referring to Noah, ..the flood represents death and resurrection, ( the earth perished and was renewed) as Peter so elegantly states, BY THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST. John the Baptist made no such statement about his baptisms. John's pointed to the COMING REDEEMER, just as animal sacrifice pointed to Jesus Christ. Acts 2:32 is the GOSPEL Peter also clarifies, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, as did Paul in 1 Corinthians15:1-4 .

Paul DID baptize. The issue was, many were worshipping the person who baptized them. please read 1 Corinthians 1:14 -15 to clarify what the issue was. But please begin verse 10-16.

There is no verse COMMANDING vegetarianism. To be a command, the verse would have to say, "I command you to eat fruit and veggies only and NOT MEAT. "

But as I stated before, it's hard to believe Cluny is a grown man, and not a 4th grade MEAN GIRL. But we all knew that, and many still calling you out for your pettiness ...

Who cares about spelling but one but you....just like a Trumpianism attack, having no meaning at all EXCEPT TO YOU. Are your depends soiled again? Need a change?

Cluny, no need for you're last two posts. I simply said we have different beliefs. You sound angry. I'm not angry because you believe differently that I do. So again, no need for your last two posts.

Who said I believe in alter calls? I've never said I did. So YOU presume a lot!

I believe scripture teaches scripture Cluny. I also believe when scripture is clear about a certain subject, then that is the final say. Colossians 2-3 do not support Lent. If that's Sola Scripture, then so be it. I'm just OBEYING the Word of God. If that makes you ANGRY, then you should not be posting here giving advise. OR were your last two posts another a juvenile MEAN GIRL ATTACK?

Predestined For Hell
It all goes back to Genesis 1-3. Especially the history of Cain and Abel. Abel presented to God a more acceptable offering ...BLOOD,where God declared Abel RIGHTEOUS, Hebrews 11, giving Cain a second chance to do what God required, yet Cain out of his own FREE CHOICE chose not to obey, choosing hell for himself. GOD calling Cain's offering EVIL.

No wonder JS1234 you didn't understand OR CHOSE to not believe the reason of God rejecting Cain's offering...or refusing to engage in any discussion about Leviticus 3 or Hebrews. SEE YOU MADE A CHOICE TOO.

It now all makes sense.

Baptism In The Epistles
My water baptism did symbolize death. That's why many do full emersion, and stating at the same time" BURIED WITH HIM UNTO DEATH ( where we go completely under the water) an RAISED WITH HIM A NEW CREATURE( this is when we are raised out of the water.

Now others just sprinkle water on your head saying, "I Baptize you in the name of the Father Son and Holy Spirit."

I don't believe John said those words when baptizing Jesus, NOR do I believe Jesus needed cleansing.

Just as Jesus said Baptize in the name of the Father Son and Holy Ghost , didn't mean to repeat those words, any more then He meant we were to repeat the Lord's Prayer word for word ...but both had a deeper meaning.

Cluny, it's still a man made tradition, and not Biblical. Just like the No meat on Friday thing the Pope made up, and now changed his mind, where many believe multitudes are in hell because they ate meat on Friday. The reason many of us don't believe in that ( Lent) is AGAIN , our SIN was dealt with when we died with Christ, and were raised up together with Him a NEW CREATURE. Our NEW CREATURE does not need a Lent..nor would we ever intentionally SIN on a sin binge. We don't believe in giving up something for 40 days, because we gave up old man of SIN altogether FOREVER. You might be living in OT before the cross mentality , we life AFTER the Cross REALITY.

But hay, as I've stated before, we simply do not have the same beliefs.

Fat Tuesday, is the last day of a season called Carnival is often characterized by drunkenness and shameless debauchery celebrated in Catholic countries as well as Catholic States like LA. The excess of Carnival has much in common with the austerity of Lent, the two seasons are inseparable. The day after Fat Tuesday is Ash Wednesday, the end of Carnival followed immediately by the beginning of Lent. Lent is a time of fasting and penance after the sinful binge, the indulgence before the fast. It is one last binge before having to give something up for 40 days.

No thanks.... I lived in New Orleans and personally witnessed this disgusting time, and I just can't separate lent from Mardi Gras.

Sorry it's NOT biblical.
