Discussion for 2 Thessalonians 2

  • A disciple
    Irene, I believe I have the Holy Spirit because I asked, and I obey Jesus; because that's what the Apostles taught in the Scriptures. It was part of Jesus' complete work in saving us from our sins, and reconciling us to God, that He might send the "Promise of the Father" to His Elect that are in the world. I see it evidenced very much in my life, and in that He gives me understanding of the Word.
  • Irene123
    disciple - I'm just curious, interested: how do you know you have the Holy Ghost ... ? Please give me scripture to prove what you say, Thanks.

    To Randy on the trib./rap. - Could you tell me where or who you get your info' from on this ... ? I don't care to argue about it - I only am curious.

    The falling away is the apostasy ,,or the falling away from God or ones belief not a rapture...

    Irene: but in those days after that "tribulation",the sun shall be darkened-- And then shall he send his angels,-- But of that day and that hour knoweth No man--- neither the Son--Mark13:24-37. We must through much "tribulation" enter into the kingdom of God.Acts14:22. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall "tribulation",or distress,or persecution---Romans 8:35
  • A disciple
    Sakana; adding to what you said, (very good!), that's what happens when folks who don't have the Holy Spirit to teach them all things, go instead after their own imaginations! Another problem that they make for themselves, is that they apparently don't have access to, or don't know how to use a Strong's Concordance, or a good Dictionary; for this would clear up all their misreadings of Scriptures.
