Discussion for Luke 12

    Luke 12th really blessed my soul. I am so happy that God knows everything and sees everything. Just think how Great God is . To know the millions of people live or dead God knows how many HAIRS are on his head. Just look at a person s head or even the Ball ones, or the ones who lost hair due to sickness or treatments. God knows just how much hair is on the head. No secrets are kept from God.

    the King James bible that I believe is the word of God. Not just containing some of the word of God is written in English, it has been translated under the guidance of the Holy Spirit of God. The phrase the Holy Ghost is used in 93 verses in the New Testament. In one verse it declares that the Church was purchased with His blood Acts 20-28, in another God through His Son commanded that baptism was to be in the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Ghost. Why would any one want to change just one word.

    57-59 Jesus mind is on Salvation, so HE use an ‘earthly parable of a ‘legal proceeding’ to instruct them /us on ‘a process’ that everyone can freely apply to ourselves thereby resolve the ‘personal issue’ of not being saved (see John 3:16-21); rightly following John 3:16 will save you or I, thereby we avoid the sentencing hearing seen in Rev:20:12-15).
