    Why doesn't God communicate with us or talk

    Hi Giannis.

    Part 1

    As I promised I would get back to you on your reply and questioning.

    Let's start with the verses you gave as the promises that Israel forfeited over to the Church.

    1. Genesis 12:1-3,

    2. Genesis 12:7,

    3. Genesis 13:14-17,

    4. Genesis 15:5-7

    5. Genesis 15:13-15,

    6. Genesis 15:18-21,

    7. Genesis 17:4-10,

    8. Genesis 21:17-18

    You stated, "Abraham and his seed pass to Jesus and His children. and you say according to

    Galatians 3:16. Paul atributes these verses to Christ it is obvious that they are for Israel as well.

    Let's look at Galatians 3:14-17.

    If you notice in the link the promise/covenant was not a land covenant. Verses 2-8 you gave are all the land covenant.

    Did you notice in Genesis 15:15-17. God told Abraham he would die before they would enter the land?

    Look how Stephen put in Acts 7:4-5.

    "and is is after God performed the covenant!!" So when will he inherit it? Hebrews11:8-10.

    Now the 1st verse is a preview of both. The Promise his seed going to be given land. "Israel"

    ( and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. ) "Christ"

    This is the only portion associated with Galatians 3:16.

    Here is the covenant Paul is speaking of in Galatians.

    ( And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:

    That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; AND THY SEED SHALL POSSESS THE GATE OF "HIS" ENEMIES;

    And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice. )

    Genesis 22:16-18.

    The Gospel was preached even before there was a law to be broken.

    Galatians 3:8.

    " Important verse"

    I removed "if it" because I believe it's in italics and shouldn't be there.

    ( Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man's covenant, yet be confirmed, NO MAN DISANNULLETH, OR ADDETH THERETO.) Galatians 3:15.

    Hebrew 5:14 What is maturity according to this verse?
  • Tyler Childres on Jeremiah 12
    I do not get this chapter.
  • James
    No prophesies need to be fulfilled? 2 thess 2:1-5 tels us differently and Paul says I've told this already.
  • Erich on John 8:6
    Verse 51- "Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death". This is such a powerful verse. there are so many people out there who are falsely claiming that once a person is saved they are always saved. They will say that disobedience to Christ will lead to chastisement or physical death, but, they are eternally secure. However, this could not be further from the truth and makes Christ out to be a liar. Very interesting that Christ says IF a man keeps his sayings they shall never see death, which is spiritual death. I just had a guy yesterday try telling me that all "true believers" will keep his sayings. However, my question is why did Christ not say that? And, why did Paul write in Romans 2:6-9 "Who will render to every man according to his deeds:To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:"? Paul knew there would be those in the church who would use their liberty in Christ as a license to sin, which is why he specifically warned BELIEVERS against walking away from Christ. He is 100% clear that salvation is conditional. He further highlights this in Gal. 5: 1-4 "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free (true believers), and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace." Notice, we as (true) believers can be SEVERED from Christ and fallen from grace. If Christ is the only way to Heaven, how can think we are eternally secure if God's very word warns against it? The OSAS crowd can't prove the Bible teaches "true" believers will automatically endure to the end. We must follow the spirit and never walk away of an evil heart of unbelief!!
  • ELB
    ISRAEL

    The Jews in the land of Israel today cannot prove which tribe they are from. There is no priest of the tribe of Levi.

    The Old Testament Israel, that died in UNBELIEF, are dead and in their graves.

    They CANNOT be grafted into the kingdom of God until the SECOND RESURRECTION.

    Matthew 19:28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, that ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye shall also sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of ISRAEL.

    This cannot happen until the SECOND RESURRECTION.

    Hebrews 4:2 For unto us the GOSPEL was preached, as well as unto them: but THE WORD preached did not prophet them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

    God Bless God!

  • Erich on Romans 8
    Love the Book of Romans. Here in ch. 8 we see a very clear explanation on how the Spirit filled Christian is to live. We stand by faith, and our faith in Christ is the means of our salvation. 1 Pt. 1:5 tells us we are kept by the power of God through faith, which is a living continual faith that is rooted in love and obedience to Christ. Now, some may say "What does it mean to be obedient to Christ?". It not only means to believe on Him, but, to express it in love ( John 13:34; 1 John ch. 1-2). How can we, as followers of Christ, say he is our Savior from sin and the penalty of sin, but, continue living in willful sin? We can't. Some will say that I am preaching a "work-based salvation", but, I am preaching a Biblical based salvation. One that is centered on the committing and dedicating our lives to the one, and only one, who gave His life for forgiveness of our sins! Only those who truly commit their lives to Christ will be saved. Anyone who claims Christ, but, lives in the flesh is not fit for the Kingdom of Heaven.

    We, as followers of Christ, need to follow the Holy Spirit and set our minds on the things above. We were once alienated from Christ based on our wicked works ( Eph. 2: 2-3). We were once children of darkness, but, now are saved by the blood of Christ. He is the one who presents us holy and un-blamable in the sight of God IF we continue in the faith ( Col. 1: 21-23; Gal. 5: 1-5). We also see that Biblical faith is one that expresses itself in love ( gal. 5: 6). We need to remember that only those who endure to the end in faith will reap eternal life ( Romans 2: 6-11; Gal. 6: 7-9; Mt. 10: 22; 1 Jn. 2: 24-25; 1 Cor. 15; 1-2).

    In the movie platoon, { a story about the Vietnam war}, sgt. Barnes while holding a bottle of Jack, proclaims that He is reality!

    That lives of the men and woman who died protecting the freedoms we enjoy, are again, being trampled upon.

    Ironically, those today, alive doing the same thing forgetting the past.

    This is the sinful nature of who we are!

    Are you like Barnes, living in your own reality?

    If what is happening to our country is not reality too you , then you may not have one!

    Freedom, to express oneself is that

    Truth that Christ , died and rose again!

    I hope this is your reality!

    This is my reality, a reality that we must spiritually live and die for.

    While a Nation once forgiven, returns to its own vomit, Wallowing in its Sin , It will, see once again reality!

  • Torrie Rhodes
    Were 'not the tithes us in the bible first by Abraham who gave a 10th to Melchizadak. Then to the tribe of Levites. Who where the priest that did not have any land at that time. Where does it command us to pay tithes now. Offerings yes but tithes. Where does God command .What is your response to this?
  • Larry K. Tippens on Mark 1
    Rsv bible mark 9:29 & matthew 17:21 have lost "fasting and prayer" that jesus said in kjv are both necessary to cast out evil/ demons.

    two satanic worshippers prevailed in 1963 process to leave out "fasting" in rsv.

    (note: " *saint joseph's partners" article "the power of fasting".)

    john wesley would not ordain a minister into colonial georgia methodist church who was not fasting.

    president abe lincoln declared 30 april as usa national day of fasting and prayer.

    a few days later a stray confederate bullet hit their commanding general.

    in his absence gettysburg was a turn of the civil war in favor of the union of usa.

    why are we today not fasting on bread and water on wednesdays ( day of judas' betrayal) & fridays ( the crucifiction), like early christians practiced?*)

    fasting is to humble ourselves, like wicked ahab did when elija told him god's judgement on him was all men and women in his kingdom would die. ahab fasted for a week..god spared ahab's people during his rule.

    esther 4:16 she and all jews fasted 3 days. god acted.

    the king canceled his command that they all jews be killed.

    why struggle under evil, pandemic, closed churches, war time attacks?fasting can be developed step by step.

    cardiologist, dr. p. jamnadas lectures:"the amazing benefits of "fasting for survival" as he lecture med students at fla. state univ. med school.

    (( why not reverse and cure diabetes? 80%of usa is prediabetic.

    clear brain fog? reverse cardio vascular disease? reduce waist lines to less than 40 inches?)

    this assistant med school professor describes how to, step by step, develop ability to fast.

    how about reduce risk of cancer by 70%for life time?

    help!!!

    lead us in developing ability to fast and pray..., as jesus expects us to do.

    lets cast out evil.

    why not?

    By using all the search options, you'll learn some really awesome information. If search doesn't fetch anything try wording it differently.

    If it fetches 5,000 verses; try wording it another way or just look at only OT or NT verses.

  • Fred Scanlan
    Jesus waste's no time! His sole purpose is to do His Father's will.

    Anyone who takes up this cross shall find a place in His "lineup".

    You see this "lineup" is according to His will, and not your or mine!

    From the start of the day .to the end He is in control!

    You shall see many things, and wonder how can these things be?

    One must measure the cost, so He might understand the price.

    This cannot be done without answering the call.

    This requires faith, a faithfulness that when He calls you will be ready! When the trumpet sounds , the table will be ready, ready for you to sit and reap the gifts that come from Him! Only Him!

    If you are well, and in the lineup, then you are blessed!

    Salt shall be required, there must be salt. Without it , we are good for nothing!

  • Joyce bruhn
    I have many bibles from childhood I think some are in poor shape l believe my mom highlighted lol notes lol . I have many books and reflective study material.The reading helps, but as you get older understand man created religions and they take out and put in what they want.Catholics keep wine drinking and idols in. Baptist take out well some ..smoking drinking and dancing . The Morman hot drinks like coffee .Jews some take out New Testament .go to church where your comfortable then read and meditate but interpretations are subjective. The most important things are first do you believe in God ? How about Jesus?then ask yourself why ? Don't let others turn you off from it. Explore explore explore ask God for guidance but you will find you change views on the details over time. It is part of growing. I do believe you should continue to discuss read meditate pray.
