Discussion for Joshua 24

  • Truth
    Truth be told this is where Jesus got all of his teachings and learning from the so called Old Testament and the true meaning of know one gets to father but through
    Me is to walk as I do and be as I am not the praising him but GOD who sent him and he also told the disciples they shall do greater things then him so since Jesus isn't a liar and you can't have 2 masters it's about GOD GOD AND GOD
  • A disciple
    "If you know these things, happy are you if you do them."God gives us commandments to live by and He expects obedience from the heart, as good and beloved children. Disobedience, selfishness and sinning against one's conscience, against one's God, against one's neighbor; is not a health issue, but a moral issue. "If you do right, won't you be accepted? but if you do not right, sin is at the door."
  • A disciple
    "Ye cannot serve the LORD: for he is an holy God; he is a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins. If ye forsake the LORD, and serve strange gods, then he will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that he hath done you good." It is the LORD's prerogative who is to be saved, and who shall serve Him; and He does not accept hypocrisy, lip-service or insincerity.
  • A disciple
    "..Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time..and they served other gods. And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan.." All Nations today are the children of Noah's sons, and of the new world after the flood; but only a small remnant are called of God out, chosen and faithful.
  • Brian
    1 Peter 2:9 "But ye are a CHOSEN generation...that ye should shew forth the praises of him WHO HATH CALLED YOU out of darkness..." We are a CHOSEN PEOPLE not a CHOOSING PEOPLE. NONE OF US EVER WOULD if it were up to us. Psalm 14:2-3 "The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God...there is none that doeth good, no, not one."
  • A disciple
    When did the LORD ever say to the people, "OH, PLEASE ACCEPT ME!" ??? The word from the beginning has been, "What have you done? Have you done what I commanded you NOT to do?" The Spirit is sent to convict people of sin, of righteousness and of judgment; s that the people should repent and turn to God; NEVER that they should "accept" Him! Sin makes us unfit for the presence of God. We need Him!
