    Tewana,

    The bible speaks of fornication as immoral. It refers to pre-marital sex. You can put fornication or sexually immoral in the search box and find scripture passages that speak to such as sinful.

    As Lazarus, the brother of Martha and Mary, he was a dear friend of Jesus, as were his sisters. I assume that these tree were followers of Jesus, not apostles, but most likely disciples. Lazarus' was raised from the dead. If that were me, I would be compelled to follow the one who raised me and learn from Him.

    Today l see God's hidden beauty that others are not seeing. For everyone is running in their own turmoil of this morning not yet promised to them. Money, Power, Greed, no heart for the needy. Only caring for me, myself, and l. Evilness is strong in these days. People are believing lies from Satan before going into the words of their Creator. The one who created everything on this Earth for them. The kindness of the Christian's are like a needle in a haystack. For there is few in-between the Evilness that now are around in these days.

    Why oh why can't you see the beauty that you should be seeing. God is sadden when He sees His creations going to be controlled by the Evil of these days, and not going to His Words that he has promised in the Bible. Going each morning on your knees to find what He has promised in His Words to carry you through the day. At night, thanking Him for seeing you through another day. And giving yourself to Him before you sleep. Asking for forgiveness of any sin you could of done, and not knowingly how to react. Ask for forgiveness. "Forgive me Father, for l have sinned, and fallen short of your Glory." To say that is to recognize and figure out what you did or thought, from the worlds point of evilness. For God wants you always to be a Blessing to others as His Son Jesus was as He walked on the Earth. So give a thought to this writing of mine, for My God put in my Heart to write, and show how He wants mankind to be, as our world becomes more and more into Revelation Days. Control!!!! Lies!!!! Meanest....Self...for God will start destroying what beauty we have on this Earth faster then now. For mankind has been destroying for some time out of Greed. .Heed my warnings!!!!!

    Having a license of a minister with credentials of being licensed. Why is it that a Pastor that you are under for nine yrs. will not teach the licensed minister what her role of that title should be about?
  • Righteous Judgment and the Legal Process - in Reply on 1 Timothy 3
    'PEOPLE', is very large blanket kind of statement. Instead of naming a person, you accuse the entire group. These are just a few of the 5700 scriptures that deal with judgment. Mishael

    John 7:24

    Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

    2 Peter 2:8

    (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds

    2 Thessalonians 1:6

    Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;

    Revelation 22:11

    He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

    John 12:47

    And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

    Matthew 7:1

    Judge not, that ye be not judged.

    1 Corinthians 11:31

    For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

    Luke 6:37

    Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

    In your prayers, forgive. Then petition the Lord Jesus to be judge between those who offend your conscience and understanding of scripture. Jesus...is our go-to person in such matters.

    Book of Job 1:

    6 Now there was a day when the sons of God (evil angels) came to present themselves before the LORD (on His Throne), and Satan came also among them.

    7 And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

    Comment=they show up when they have someone to accuse. Satan=Accuser

    Always take your "legal issue" before the Lords Throne first. He has the best ATTORNEY, JESUS CHRIST.

    1 John 2:1 The Advocate.

    Miracles from God do happen know matter how old you are. Many Blessings came to me. Many mistakes l did not see.

    No vacations l lost how to relax. l kept working and helping others seek out their dreams. Thought time would stand still, There was no aging me. Saw the Lights of Heaven more then once. No one told me to seek life instead of work to build others so much. Want to be around God's creations as before.

    He always gave me what l wanted you see. Spiritual miracles, but l never stopped to understand. No one was around to help me understand, so l wrote all down. Natives. Medicine men. Miracles given to me. But l only look at what l have now l did not give to others, what God meant them to be for me. Miss my wolf and traveling. Miss my horse never time for them. Understand me now, for I only help others now see. Their gifts of love that comes to them from up above. But like me from the past they don't understand. In this world of evilness-- God's Love for them never is felt. For His Special Love shines inside of you to see-- His world not ours. For the evilness changes what is meant to be. A easier life, not the struggles you see....

    Did you know The Beatles said they were bigger than Jesus. Is that where you got the 1+1+1 = 3 Hold him in your ams and you can feel his disease (antichrist).
  • Richard in Christ on 1 Timothy 3
    Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His.

    1 Corinthians 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

    Philippians 2:9-11 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name:

    That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

    And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

    Because the Elect One standeth before the Lord of Spirits, And His glory is for ever and ever, And His might unto all generations.

    And the Elect One shall in those days sit on My throne, And His mouth shall pour forth all the secrets of wisdom and counsel: For the Lord of Spirits hath given (them) to Him and hath glorified Him.

    He shall be a staff to the righteous whereon to stay themselves and not fall, And He shall be the light of the Gentiles, And the hope of those who are troubled of heart.

    Open your eyes and lift up your hands if ye are able to recognize the Elect One. And the Lord of Spirits seated Him on the throne of His glory, And the spirit of righteousness was poured out upon Him, And the word of his mouth slays all the sinners, And all the unrighteous are destroyed from before his face.

    Hi Stewart.

    I'm only interested in ones salvation,

    And if One agrees with you and don't accept Christ then he's still lost.

    But if he accepts Christ the Holyspirit will reveal to him all he needs to Know.

    I'm sure you don't mind somebody wanting to preach the gospel/ Teachings on salvation without debating the trinity right.

    I'm sure no Christian would want to get in the way of that. It's what Jesus commanded.

    I have no further comments on that topic, Thank you and God bless you.
  • Stewart - in Reply on 1 Timothy 3
    It's interesting response any how , I disagree 1+1+1 = 3

    No matter how it's spun that's the sum .

    You gotta have the right God to start with all the rest is sin .
  • St Spencer - in Reply on 1 Timothy 3
    Hi Stewart

    I'm so sorry!! That msg wasn't for you! I read your response from my email and realized It's me on the wrong thread!!

    That wasn't intended for you.

    again I'm sorry.

    God bless you.

    Stewart

    Trintarians believe in one God!

    You mis the point, is your view all you care about? What about Preaching and teaching the gospel?

    Muslims believe in one God but regects the gospel, are they saved?

    Are you saved? if so why not spend your time sharing how you got there.

    Let's grow up and take the first step of leading a productive and spiritual life and do what Christ commanded us to do and let the Holyspirit do the rest.

    HOW ABOUT GETTING TOGETHER AND SAVE SOME LIVES BY GETTING SALVATION RIGHT and everything else will fall in place in due time.

    A mark of a true Christian is to Love the brethren, not to seek and divide.

    PLEASE LET THIS THREAD BE ABOUT SALVATION!!! PLEASE.

    God bless.

    James also said there is one God even the devils know and tremble , not much fear of God these days .

    Hi Patty.

    You're right when said-

    ""You go to His words. You pray. After, you keep the Faith to believe it will be done. You go day to day believing and waiting for His soon return. That is what you do""

    But we are inspired by the Holyspirit to go out and distribute what you have faith and believe in. ( We work!)

    NOT TO BE SAVED, "BECAUSE WE ARE SAVED".

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

    This is what James is saying in his epistle.

    James 2:17-18. Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

    Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

    God bless.
  • Patty Tozi on 1 Timothy 3
    Time never stands still. People are living and dying. This world has made life uncertain. So what do you do? You ask your Father in Heaven for help, as He gave us when His Son Jesus died and suffered for all our sins. You go to His words. You pray. After, you keep the Faith to believe it will be done. You go day to day believing and waiting for His soon return. That is what you do.

    Patty Tozi thankyou so much for you post which is so obviously straight from your heart ,may God continue to bless you and keep you very close to Him .
  • Ronnie on 1 Timothy 3:11
    There is a lot of I KNOW AND YOUR WRONG attitudes out here when it comes to The Word of "God", (yes spelled with a capital G by the way), but is it really getting us anywhere? 2 Timothy 2:23

    (But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.)

    Titus 3:9

    (But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.) When it comes to God's Word no one knows it better than God, go to him, pray for understanding and whatsoever in faith believing ye ask, ye shall receive! The preacher said it best in Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 (Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

    For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.) God Bless and fight the good fight.
  • Patty Tozi on 1 Timothy 3
    When you have a problem taking care of people in their last days, you can forget God is near. You react against yourself when you see their pain is bad and the system rules they cannot have pain medicine. So what l did this morning was fight for him thru our Lord Jesus Christ. For His sufferings for our sins, cannot be worse then the problems that mankind has with the enemy of this world. So l decide to fight for all mankind going through things..not just this person l take care of. For in the Bible l ask for help from the Mighty Light of God's word.

    You may be in difficult times. Don't get discouraged. Just remember how God has already parted the Red Sea many a time in your life and delivered you. On your knees and read God's words what He wants for you. The best is yet to come....

  • The Heartbeat of Time Genesis one one - in Reply on 1 Timothy 3
    Wow that post must be a year old. I used to cut Benny a lot of slack because after I was saved out of the occult (1985), I had so much warfare. I was fearful to sleep, so I got really sick. I needed to get milk for the kids so the Lord got me in the car. To shorten the story: I bought 2 books I couldn't afford and get milk. One book was 1.00 and the other 2.00; milk 1.85 :D

    I had need of knowing what was going on in my home. It was full of demons. I got back in bed and read Bennys book. I realized what my problems were! Then I read part of Angels by Charles Capps. I got out of bed and exercised my baby christian faith; ordered the demons to leave! And asked for angels to guard the 4 corners of my house. Then, I was able to sleep!

    I know what people say about Benny Hinn, but his book saved my life. I've only heard Jeff Fenholt testify demons levitated his bed too; when he was sleeping in it. I'm leaving out the other details. Too scary.

    Also, I know Benny teaches a form of Old Earth theory, concerning satan, demons, etc. I do not support that theory at all.

    They must obey the Authority of Jesus Name. I only study a King James Version Bible and a Strongs Concordance.

    I asked the Lord about the Old Age Theory. The Holy Spirit took me to Genesis 1:1. If God wanted us to LEARN pre-Adamic happenings, God would've included a Book in the Bible. It was omitted because the entire Bible focuses on one person: Jesus. His genealogy, birth, life, death and resurrection; the Book of Revelation.

    Genesis 1:1 blows Old Age Theory out of sight when God SET TIME IN MOTION. In beginning...

    (In Hebrew language there is no "The".

    The first verse explains the 4 unanswered questions scientists have tried to explain throughout mans history: Time, Force, Action, Matter.

    I'm sorry, but I do not dig in Christian books. I only use the Bible. I learned to read it slow to find the answers.

    Mishael,,.... I have read your posts frequently, and have been in agreement with you often, yet I'm troubled over your post which credits Benny Hinn and his teaching titled "war in the Heavenlies ". Do you adhere to Hinn's teachings? Are you in agreement with Benny Hinn. Please respond. May God bless you and keep you true to His Word.
  • Earl Poitier on 1 Timothy 3:2
    Sadly, so many are so unlearn that we have a tense to Judge so quickly tell we can't understand. The law was set for the children, Isreal. If we read the word of God carefully, Abraham had two wives, Jacob had two wives, King Davis had two wives, and so owned this was a comma practice in the early days. In New Testament, the Gentiles that were all baptized in Jesus' name was all Die in the watery grave was all risen in newness. 1 Corinthian 7: 10-16 explain. Now for the two wives, which was a practice in the early church, this is one reason why the Office of a Bishop must have one wife. Remember in your study what happens between Sarah and Haggi Jacob Rachel and Leah. I want to go into greater detail, but some of my teaching you will find in The Word of Truth Ministry.
  • Carleton on 1 Timothy 3
    Matthew 16:17-20

    And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

    And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

    And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

    Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Timothy 3
    Dan, I don't recall a Scripture with those words, but did find this prayer on the Web, by someone who calls himself, Evangelist Chris Okoh:

    "Oh Lord make me a mysterious wonder when men say it is finished. With this prayer, things will begin to change for good in Jesus name. The lord will lift you up above peoples understanding. O God make me a divine wonder O God arise in Jesus name."

    I don't subscribe to the above nor have I heard of this man, but offer it in case this is what you've seen.

    Dan,

    Could this be what you are looking for?

    Psa 139:13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.

    Psa 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

    Psa 139:15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

    Psa 139:16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

  • Jesse - in Reply on 1 Timothy 3
    Nickolas,

    Matthew 27:17 says "Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:"

    This was written for the Jews. What the Jews would do is they would use their housetops like a patio. It is where they would sit at night because of the heat. Jesus says let the one who is on the housetops (Jews) not come down to take anything out of his house.

    That is how urgent things are going to be for them (The Jews). In Verse 16, they are told to flee. They are to flee immediately. There will be no time to go into the house to gather their belongings. I'm not sure if they still do, but the Jews had an outside stairway that goes up to the roof. So they are told to just go down the stairs and head on out to the mountains.

    It is the same thing in Verse 18 with the ones who are out in the field. They are also to flee to the mountains. They are not to return home first to gather any of their belongings or check on loved ones. It will be very urgent for them and there will be no time to waste.
