    LUKE 12:4 AND I SAY UNTO YOU MY FRIENDS BE NOT AFRAID OF THEM THAT KILL THE BODY AND AFTER THAT HAVE NO MORE THAT THEY CAN DO *****12:5 BUT I WILL FOREWARN YOU WHOM YOU SHALL FEAR FEAR HIM WHICH AFTER HE HATH KILLED HATH POWER TO CAST INTO HELL YEA I SAY UNTO YOU FEAR HIM
  • Stephende
    This chapter foretells who shall enter the kingdom of God, and it will be those who watch for His coming. But it is not in the flesh but spiritual just as the heart Jesus speaks of is not a pump. He forewarns that what we do on earth in our lifetime predicts what becomes of our soul. Jesus is NOT coming to earth again to rule. Read the parables and learn that how we are is where we will go

    To disciple - You spend a lot of time instructing others - back at cha', disciple; we're pretty much alike - in that respect. I am telling the truth as I say this: I pray for all of those on here - you are part of 'all'. The peace and love of Jesus be with you this Saturday, disciple, have a blessed day.
  • A disciple
    Irene, have you not read the part where the Lord Jesus warns against blasphemy of the Holy Ghost? This terrible warning of eternal damnation concerns those who said Jesus had an unclean spirit; and who were NEVER saved Christians! You spend a lot of time "instructing" others; but the foundation and building of understanding knowledge of the Spirit of Truth must be irrefutable as Whom we speak for.
  • Irene123
    I really don't see how, through writing, talking, anyone could 'force' anyone to do anything. If that were the case - you better talk to God, Bruce; His 'language' is much more 'forceful' than mine. I'm not angry with you; Please believe that. I pray that your day will be blessed of God - in Jesus name, Amen
  • Bruce
    Irene:The Scripture says he that speaks evil of the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness-,describes came down and they said, Jesus has a devil: that's saying The Holy Ghost is a devil:Mark 3:22-30/ Are you trying to force people to believe what you do? Where in scripture does it say the things you said?/ Hebrews 9:12 redemption through his blood forever Revelations 1:5 washed by his blood/1John 1:9
