Discussion for Deuteronomy 28

    Hi Bruce; If that's how it was for you, I rejoice with you. My experience went somewhat different however from yours; but I know that there was joy in the presence of the angels over this sinner that repented! I haven't kept any day for a memorial, or as special; and I stay away generally from holidays or religious tokens; but have my religion in practical application of the Spirit led life.

    disciple, Do you believe Ecc.7:5-11? Thank you for your reply. It certainly is a growing process.
    If you mean by patient "skirting around an issue, or flattering someone" when someone is speaking against his word, or making a false accusation, then be happy in your patience. (I mean that with respect, not sarcasm) The Lord has taught me to be bold, and stand up for him.

    Majority Text (Textus Receptus) is that from which the KJV was rendered. It is the 1st Greek text published by Erasmus.
    The Minority Text (Wescott, Hort, Nestle-Aland, United Bible Soc. Greek N.T.) is that from which every English trans. since the R.V. of 1881 has come. There are some 36,000 differences between the Eng. of the KJV

    Forgive me for my comment concerning Deut. 28
  • Bruce
    When a person is lost,they have no idea where they're at,they have a hopeless feeling. But when they see something familiar,it's WOW! They'll remember that for a lone time. When a person is saved it's a 100 times better! A Day like no other. Born-again. Born of The Spirit. A great Day of Rejoicing,a Day that will be remembered. The unchanged (lost) says no big deal,that Day means nothing.

    Hi Lu2677 Thanks for your reply! I too find it very spiritually exhilarating to engage in discussion (and debate!) of the Scriptures. Not only do we exercise our skill and understanding of the Word; (as it is a two-edged sword, and he that waters himself also shall be watered); but it also teaches me how to talk to others and be patient, like I expect the Lord to be with me. Its a growing process!
