    Jn. 8:32 - In a time of universal deceit and advanced political correctness , speaking truth is considered an act of defiance. Proclaim TRUTH anyway.

    Irene, its like a bible study for me w the many verses you put up. I write them down
  • Irene123
    Levell - Lk. 23:47 - even the centurion, who helped crucify Jesus, said, " ... certainly this was a righteous man." Jesus' words, that he did nothing of Himself referred to His flesh man; but as His Father taught Him, He (Jesus) did those things. It's the same with us; when we have God's spirit in us (Acts 2:38) it's HIS spirit that does the works, speaks the words of wisdom from His word.
  • Irene123
    Levell - Probably you won't understand this: Jesus being lifted up was His reference to His crucifixion. Then, in Acts ch. 1 He ascended to heaven; then Actsv2:37-38 (men and brethren, WHAT SHALLWE DO?) they began to realize, after Peter's message that they needed to turn to HIM for salvation. " ... be baptized in the NAME of Jesus Christ ... "; Acts 4:12 - for there is none other name ..."
