    1 John v 9

    If we believe the witness of men , THE WITNESS Of GOD IS GREATER:

    For this is the witness of God which He hath testified of His Son .

    Verse 10 ,11,13

    His Son !!!!!!!! Not the Triune God .

    If you understand what the Son of God means then all your delusions will vanish .

    But you must except Gods witness of His Son or be forever deluded with errors .

  • Rob - in Reply on 1 John 4:3
    I have no problem , I stick

    To the revealed word of God .

    God said this is my beloved Son in whom I'm well please .

    I'm very much in agreement with Gods witness on record , don't add to Gods word .

    If you truly understand what the witness of God is then you will not add more to it .

    I'm not adding you are .

    Think twice who is right you or anyone's else , or God .

    Gods witness on record is enough to those that believe it , and receive it they have the witness in themselves .

    Do you have a way to find the address of a church out of your area; one that you would like to support? If so then you could send tithes there via the US mail in the form of a check.

    Chris

    Many have made shipwreck of their faith by surrendering the battle. We fight on. No truer words have been spoken. I fathom this Love that still speaks to me after all these years. I wish I could say" I fought the good fight" but to be honest I have not" to many yields" not enough VICTORY. Nevertheless this love that beckons me on is beyond my comprehension or understanding. I get up dust myself off and start another day.

    Thanks Chris

    Rob you are the one with a problem GEE WHIZ GET A LIFE, The Father wd NOT instruct all the Angels to worship his Son if he were not God THE SON. The Father himself wd be breaking the 1st commandment if he instructed all the angels to worship his son if he were not God . Jesus though it not robbery to be equal to his Father saying all mine is thine and all thine is mine. The Father said that everything has to multiply after its kind EVERYTHING IN HEAVEN AND EARTH And we see that CHRIST can indeed multiply after the God kind with his good seed the LIVING WORD Saying to whom the WORD came ( his seed )made them Gods,Thats y he said that which is born of the spirit is spirit as God is spirit he is able to reproduce after the GOD KIND which proves he is truly God the Son Everything has to multiply after its Kind no exceptions. His seed is truly the seed of God he wd not refer to his seed as "GOOD" IF IT WERE NOT GOD. There cd not be an Israel of GOD "the kingdom" if the son were not God. His GOOD SEED is gona bring in the Israel of God th woman with CHILD. When the FATHER said go forth and multiply that was addressed to Christ also thats y the son will go forth and sow his precious seed in humanity that he might be multiplied as the stars of heaven in us sinners the H.G is his fruit our new innerman, our new heart and new spirit ok gbu

    If Jesus was just a created Being (i.e. a separate creation for the purposes of ministry to the Jews & for Sacrifice), then the point I made, is what difference is there between Him & the pure, spotless sacrificial animal? Both are pure, both are created, both were prescribed of God & yes, both would only offer a temporal covering for sin, leaving the sinner today, as the Jew of yesteryear, bereft of a worthy & eternal salvation. That is why the Scriptures reveal an unbreakable link of Jesus, God's Word, coming from God in Heaven & being made the only Sacrificial Lamb that would meet God's demands fully. A created Jesus would be just another human creation (would God even do that?), however perfect He would be, but would not meet the criteria that God required for our redemption, justification & adoption. Just as the animal sacrifice could not satisfy God's Anger but only put in 'a stay of execution' to those under the law/curse, so any other created being could never do so. God's Sacrifice - His Love - was fully accomplished by Him offering up of Himself through His only Begotten Son, making our redemption perfect & final - that was God's Plan from all eternity.

    And I would take you up on your words: "The important thing is that the sinner should not be a sinner any more Sinlessness is the key". There should be time for that discussion - not now. Blessings.

    Yes, dear Hugo, I was referring to our conversation on 'prophets'. Re: Ecclesiastes 6:11, I think you have the wrong reference; possibly Proverbs 10:19, though this too doesn't apply.

    I realize that you're not denying the deity of Christ in one sense, but I would advise you that 'Trinitarians' likewise don't deny it either. A Trinitarian understanding of the Scriptures as you know, is that there is One God & that God has expressed Himself (& revealed to us) His Being. God shows us Himself also by His Word & His Spirit - you know the Scriptures that support this. Then at the appointed time (Romans 5:6), God sent His Word (John 1:14) to be clothed with flesh so that a full & permanent sacrifice could be made for sin unlike animal sacrifices.

    After Christ's death, resurrection & ascension, He went to sit at the Father's right Hand (Luke 22:69; Romans 8:34) where He "ever lives to make intercession for us" (Hebrews 7:25; Romans 8:34). So we see the Father in Heaven, His Son (Word made flesh) at the Father's right Hand & His Spirit who indwells the believer (John 14:17; Ephesians 1:13,14) & convicts men (John 16:8). There is no such teaching from the Bible that Jesus only exists in Heaven & that the Father & Holy Spirit are now existing in Jesus. I know this is the teaching of the "Jesus Only" movement. The Father, the Son & the Spirit are still there & all three remain part of the Eternal Godhead (& yes, by all means, level your accusation at me), for the Bible is clear. If you have Scriptures to show that this is not the case, then I welcome your further input & my study.

  • Michael - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 4:17
    13But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 14But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
  • Chris - in Reply on John 10:36
    Rob, I'm not sure which version of the Bible you use but have a read of John 10:32-38 again, just to clarify what blasphemy is & what Jesus was accused of being.

    And when you get to verse 36, consider, "of whom (Jesus) the Father hath sanctified & SENT into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?" So, if one needs to be a stickler on the definition of Son of God as being a Son from birth only & not 'out of God's Being', another can then correctly say that Jesus was SENT into the world; why should Jesus use the word 'sent' as if He came from somewhere to go somewhere? Wouldn't it be more correct then to say, 'The Father hath specially created me to be born at Bethlehem & gave me a special ministry & finally to given my life for the world'?

    And while we're examining the Scriptures, what about John 8:56-58? Abraham rejoicing to see "his day"! Are you so mad to say that you've seen Abraham? the Jews retorted. "Even before Abraham existed, I AM". Again, notice Jesus' choice of words to describe Himself.

    And Colossians 1:15-17? "For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him". That whole passage cited, is speaking of Jesus, not God.

    Do even these few portions of Scripture cause us to think that we have here, Someone Who is more than a separate creation born into the world to fulfil God's Plans. Someone who was involved in the creation of all things, visible & invisible, One existing before Abraham & One even sent by God from somewhere to somewhere (the World)? I know that you are well aware of these Scriptures, but I remain perplexed as to how some other interpretation can be given other than understood as read.

    So who or what (I do not know which to use in this case) is Jesus Christ? Please speak clearly.

    God bless you brother Chris

    Thank you for taking the effort to reply to my comment. Everything else aside, I appreciate your time. (You mentioned a previous conversation; perhaps you are confusing me with someone else, unless you mean that one comment about whether there are still prophets.)

    Let us just be careful: Ecclesiastes 6:11 The more words, the less meaning. You wrote a lot but I do not see much which is relevant to the topic at hand. I never denied Jesus Christ His deity. In contrast, I think Trinitarians deny His deity. I clearly said that Jesus Christ is the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Trinitarians say He is not the Father or the Holy Ghost. Actually I should level the denying deity accusation at YOU!

    You say that the man Jesus could not be a sacrifice for sins. You say it has to be God that is the sacrifice. I do not understand your reasoning. The reason why the animal sacrifice had to be done yearly is because the sinner is not cleaned of his sin. He is still a sinner. He will walk away and sin again. The animal was a yearly covering for the sin. So the important thing is not the sacrifice. The important thing it that the sinner should not be a sinner any more. That is what the Holy Ghost does for us. We are washed once in the blood of Jesus, and then we can be filled with the Holy Spirit. I do not see why you say it is of no use that God create a human being to be the sacrifice. Sinlessness is the key.

    Peace & Love to you. May God allow us all to know Him intimately.

    God bless you brother Adam

    Thank you for you reply. To respond to your comments:

    You ask where in the Bible does it say Jesus Christ is the name of the Father. The answer is: (directly) Isaiah 9:6 - He (Christ) shall be called the Father /// (indirectly) Acts 2:38 - Jesus Christ said to baptize in the name of the Father; the apostles baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.

    You quote 1John 5:7. With all due respect, if you look it up, you will find that that verse was not in the Bible originally. The apostle John did not write it. Rather it was an addition by someone else around the year 1500.

    You quote John 10:30, John 1:1, John 1:14: The spirit in Jesus is God. So of course Jesus can say that the Father and I are one. When a man says "I know", is it the body that knows? No, it is the spirit in the man that knows. Jesus Christ and God are one Spirit. /// The Word which was with God and became flesh is the Christ (a Spirit). Not the baby born in Bethlehem, but the Spirit inside that body.

    You ask if Jesus prayed to Himself: That is absurd. The body called Jesus prayed to His Father whose Spirit was dwelling in Jesus just like it dwells in all sons and daughters of God.

    You speak about Christians believing literally what the Bible says: This is NOT true. Think about things like female Christians cutting off their hair. Christians taking the Lord's Supper in the morning. Taking leavened bread instead of unleavened. Using juice instead of wine. Think about Christians not doing footwashing. Think about Christians saying it is okay to be gay. Saying it is okay for a woman to be a preacher. God have mercy upon us all.

    Lastly, you ask about my motive: That is probably the hardest of your comments to respond to... To see if someone will be able to accept it.

    Peace & Love in Christ

    Sometimeswouldn'tit wouldbe nice to know the right person to get your footin the door of the job you need.

    Actually,there is someone whom you can reach outtofor help. And this someone is available 24 hours a day.This someone is God. When you pray for employment, you connect directly to Him. Godis waiting and willing to help you with any obstacle you face,and that includes employment.

    Prayerfor employment is alsoagreatway of releasing all stress and anxiety related to searching for a job,byentrusting Godwithyourjob-huntingprocess.

    DearGod,I thank you that you have a job forme,and I know that in whatever position you placeme,I will be blessed. I am blessed when I come and when Igo,and I know that I am above only and not beneath. You have blessed me and called me your own.

    I know that my success is found in youand you have given me the ability to perform my job withexcellence. It is in you thatIreceive promotion, increase and success and I thank you thatyourblessing and favor will be awaiting me at the new job that you have for me.

    Sometimes our lives are telling us that our relationship with Jesus broke down first. Take a few minutes and rededicate you and your life to Jesus. Put him first again...and you can ask anything in His Name, and He will help you. Give him praise and thanks.

    Amen! Thank you, Jesus.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Proverbs 2:16
    Familiar Spirits follow families; even old relationships. They're like demonic spies. They dangle memories that are painful, that you want to forget. If necessary ask that past persons forgiveness.

    Today is the day of rescue and salvation from this spiritual warfare. You need to confess any sin(s) and receive Gods forgiveness over the past. Ask God to break all curses over you from that time to today.

    In 1 John 1:9, it's best to stay current for things we do, but wish we had not done or said them. The Holy Spirit works inside of our conscience to let us know that's one we need to pray and be released from.

    Reading the Bible, New Testament books will help us to side step the pits we fall over sometimes. You can listen to the Bible in your car driving to work, on Youtube; on your phone.

    Our flesh leads us astray often. Bible reading stops that. I pray that you will follow Jesus and be a disciple to lead others to light and freedom. Jesus is the Light of the World. Amen.

    Dear Sister Shirley; God bless you

    What is the beast? It is what takes you away from God. What takes you to God? The Holy Ghost - the Seal of God. What is the mark of the beast? It is unbelief. Unbelief is the unpardonable sin. You must believe to have forgiveness. You cannot be forgiven of unbelief. What is the mark in the forehead? The forehead is the seat of reasoning. Reasoning is to take us to God. The mark of unbelief is the worst thing you can have on your forehead. It is unforgivable.

    Peace & Love

    Matthew 18:19-20

    That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, THERE AM I, in the midst of them.

    I join my prayer and ask the Lord to send angelic ministers to watch over your grandparents: keep them safe, prevent hazards and accidents, to believe the Bible and trust in God and be kind to each other.

    Give your peace to this child that she can rest in your love and care. In the Name of Jesus.

    Sometimes our lives are telling us that our relationship with Jesus, broke down first. Take a few minutes and rededicate you and your life to Jesus. Put him first again.

    In Jesus name I agree that all demonic beings be bound from afflicting this home and marriage, and be cast into outer darkness. I pray for light and healing to come back into this home and that the 2 hearts would be one, again.

    Lord give favor towards restoration of the relationship by the Holy Spirits ministry of reconciliation. Open their ears to listen to each other again. Open the Bible to 1 Corinthians Ch13 and Ch 7, to their spirits.

    Touch and heal them. In the name of Jesus. Thank you Lord Jesus, Bless the Holy Spirit.

    Amen.

    Pray this out loud. Read those scriptures.

    Trust in God.
