    Even though you are saved once, you can drift back into sin so deep without repentance you are lost again.

    Part 2 Bible plan for tongues

    Acts 9: 17, 18,

    Paul, called Saul then, who wrote a lot of the new testament, recieved the Holy Ghost.

    1 Corinthians 14:18:

    Paul mentions he thanks God he speaks with tongues more than you all!

    Paul wrote chapters 12, 13, and 14 about spiritual gifts, the proper use of speaking in unknown/other tongues.

    Acts 10,

    a man name Cornelius, a gentile, a devout man of God, who prayed always to God, had not yet known of or recieved the Holy Ghost.

    Peter was sent to him and his household by the Lord, he preached to them the Gospel, and the Holy Ghost fell on Cornelius household, all gentiles! The bible says because they heard(visual sign and sound)them speak with tongues and magnify God! Then they were baptised! Acts 10: 44 - 48.

    Acts 19: 1 - 7:

    Paul came to disciples of John, asking them if they had recieved the Holy Ghost SINCE THEY BELIEVED! They said they never heard of the Holy Ghost! Paul laid hands on them, when the Holy Ghost fell on them, they spake with tongues(Visual sign/sound). They were baptized in water.

    In conclusion:

    Mark 16: 17,

    Isaiah 28: 11, 12,

    John 3: 5 - 8,

    Jesus spoke of a new birth to enter the Kingdom of God; a Water and Spirit birth/called the Holy Ghost.

    He said there would be a visible sign;

    like wind you cannot see, but there is a SOUND.

    In his Name believers would speak with new tongues.

    Isaiah prophesied this would be the rest/refreshing for the people.

    In the book of Acts this is fullfilled consistently when the Holy Ghost was poured out!

    God's Spirit in you: the rest/refreshing, a visual sign of his presence in you, speaking from your heart out of your human mouth a new heavenly language, pure, beautiful and Holy!
  • Starbux on Luke 11:8
    The bible plan for speaking with tongues.

    God gave visual signs throughout the bible of his presence.

    God chose speaking tongues as a visual sign when you recieve the Holy Ghost!

    Jesus said out of the abundance of your heart, the mouth speaks. Matthew 12:34.

    When God gives you his Spirit, he puts it in your heart; Galations 4: 6.

    So what is in your heart comes out of your mouth.

    Jesus said:

    Mark 16:17:

    Believers will speak with new tongues.

    Isaiah 28: 11, 12,

    prophecied it is the rest/power, to cause the weary to rest; refreshing.

    John 3: 5 - 7:

    Jesus spoke about a new spiritual birth you will recieve when you are born again. Then he added: John 3: 8:

    The WIND bloweth where it listeth, and thou HEAREST the SOUND thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is EVERYONE that is born of the Spirit.

    Who did he say?


    This scripture is fullfilled in Jerusalem in the upper room, the Holy Ghost was first poured out: Acts 2: 1 - 4:

    And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

    And suddenly there came a SOUND from heaven as of a rushing mighty WIND and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

    And there appeared unto them cloven TONGUES like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

    And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to SPEAK WITH OTHER TONGUES, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

    Here you see that SOUND from heaven as a rushing mighty WIND is Holy Ghost/speaking with other tongues!

    Acts 2: 33:

    Peter told the jews which were speaking in another tongue/language, this is the promise of the Holy Ghost that they now SEE(VISUAL SIGN), and HEAR(YOU WILL HEAR A SOUND.)

    Acts 2: 16 - 19.

    Peter told the jews the prophet Joel spoke about it.

    Acts 8: 14 - 20:

    Simon the sorcerer saw when Peter and John laid hands on jews, he SAW POWER(THE VISUAL SIGN) when they recieved the Holy Ghost, and offered money for it!

    Acts 9: 17, 18,

    Paul, called Saul then, who wrote a

    CCorrect once you are born again it cannot be undone it is spiritual, that doesn't mean that when your born again you immediately do Gods word that requires study working it changing your thinking.

    You can lose your salvation if you turn and reject the truth and follow after Balaam. Read ( 2 Pet 2:15-22) For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than , after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. Remember the devil walks around like a roaring lion try to devour whom he can. Trying to take the righteous off the path and he sometimes does succeed. That's why it is important to grow daily in the knowledge of Jesus Christ so that we are able to withstand the wiles of the devil. Let yesterday's victory be a foundation of faith to stand on so that we can build on it today and become stronger for tomorrow we will be tested once more.
  • Steven Spencer - in Reply on Luke 11:13
    Hi David. A picture of salvation is like when you was a little walking across the street with you parents, you're in the middle and both parents have you by the hand, "they're holding your hands you're not holding theirs" . Jesus says in John ch 10; I give them eternal life and THEY SHALL NEVER PERISH, no man can pluck them out of my hand, my father which gave them me is greater than all and no man can pluck them out of my Father's hand. salvation is a gift for those who believe, but if you try to add to it you are attempting to hold their hand and you will always question your grip.

    "And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day."John6:39

    Are you trusting him to have saved you, or do you have to earn it, and if it is earned, that's not grace.

    My comments about that Woman in luke 11 : 27 that was praising Mary saying blessed is the womb that bare you and the paps you have sucked which was MARY ,BUT Jesus was refering to another Woman when he said rather blessed are them that hear the WORD and keeps it which is the WORLD that is gonna hear his voice his seed etc and bring forth fruit unto God. Jesus said the field was the world where that good seed will be sown in their hearts and that good seed is the living word the very seed of God thus he truly the son of man as all men will give birth to Christ in the last day, Jeremiah saw all men in travail and birth pains when he spoke of the new covenant which is a birthing covenant , I WILL know them All from the least to the greatest which is an intimacy with God that is gonna result in a heavenly birth of Christ in all of US thus the Church is the bride that is gonna birth Christ a greater then MARY in a sense . Actually rather blessed are them that hear his words and keeps them as Jesus said. Read Jeremiah 30 : 6 Y do i see all men with their hands of their loins as woman in travail and birth pains a time of Jacobs troubles her Child is a heavenly Jacob which is the H.G. the ISRAEL OF GOD. Jeremiah saw all these things in the spiritual realm. when he saw the manchild that was gonna rule all nations and destroy everything not of faith. Gods battle ax. There is a greater MOTHER then Mary which is humanity. Remember David saw the whole world at rest and full of his GLORY in that last day. Jesus asked who is my mother ? then he said them that hear my words and keeps them simply b/c his word is gonna impregnate the whole WORLD and that is what God wanted when he made that GREAT PROMISE OF MULTIPLICATION SAYING I WILL MULTIPLY THY SEED AS THE STARS OF HEAVEN. thus the sower and his precious seed that new covenant . As Solomon said that thy NAME might be great in ALL the world . ok lemme go rake some leaves

    Just to add: I also see that Jesus' sin bearing act which was based on such great Love for us, also meant a temporary loss of fellowship & communion with the Father - one that He constantly enjoyed prior to this time ( John 14:10, John 17:5, John 5:19,20).

    In His great agony & distress, such an estrangement would have been almost unbearable, even comparable to the responsibility He carried by having all our sin & guilt placed upon Him. At a time when comfort, any comfort, would have given some small relief, the Father remained quiet, not allowing anything to hamper or hinder that ultimate work of salvation. Jesus knew this, but in His Humanity, His Cry was not just because of the pain in the flesh, but the pain of losing that constant blessed fellowship & ministry which was His right by His position in the Godhead.

    I wonder whether Jesus' anguish & pain was also not felt by the Father - that it must have been a difficult response by God to remain incommunicado & estranged even for a short period of time. The break in any fellowship can be painful. But when sin is not the basis for pain & suffering, the agony becomes so much worse, yet it's ensuing result became the hope & joy of the world.

    "This is something I am sure is easy to answer but I just have wondered about it but when Jesus was on the cross why did he say My God My God why have thee forsaken me. I thought maybe that he was in so much pain he did not know what he was saying? Thanks."

    One must first understand the Godhead before one can understand how Christ could pray this prayer. The triune Godhead is comprised of three persons who are one monotheistic God. The scriptures reveal these persons are known as the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit. This truth is found in numerous verses in the Bible, Gen.1:26; 3:22,Is.48:16, John 1:1-4, 1 Jn 5:7 to name a few.

    The next thing a person needs to understand about the Godhead is that it has three attributes that make it unique. These three self-existent attributes are omnipresence, omnipotence, and omniscience. The Godhead is everywhere present, all-powerful, and all-knowing. The Godhead is perfect and cannot be tempted by sin, as James 1:13 explains. God required a perfect man to approach Him to redeem mankind, and thanks to Adam's fall, that man did not exist. This is why the Word laid down his self-existent attributes in the Godhead to live as the last Adam with is title as God to be tempted by sin and pay the penalty the law required to redeem mankind.

    This truth is found in Is.9:6, Hebrews chapters 1 and 2, 1 Timothy 3:16, and other verses.

    Colossians 2:9 explains the fullness of the Godhead dwelt in Christ bodily. How do we know this is true? Christ was not omnipresent while on the earth. He dwelt in time and space in a single location(Jn1:14). Jesus was asked about the events of the tribulation, and he told his disciples the Father knew the day, not him( Matt. 24:36). Jesus was not omnipotent stating the Father did all the works through Him( Jn 14:10. After Christ rose he took back his self-existent position back in the Godhead to come dwell in all of mankind, which would require self-existent omnipresence. I hope this helps.

    I do believe that he felt the spirit that came from god, at the time of his baptism depart, just before his death. It is finished.
  • JBey - in Reply on Luke 11:5
    While on the cross Jesus became Sin; a horror for the Father to see.

    He took upon Himself not only the Sins of those who came before, but those who where alive at the time of His crucifixion- as well as those born after. Moreover, Jesus not only became Sin personified, but took on every sickness and disease. A metamorphosis took place while Jesus hung on the Cross; he became a curse - all of which had to be rejected and condemned by the Father.

  • Alex on Luke 11
    This luke 11 : 27 Tells us alot about y Jesus refers to himself as the SON OF MAN. That woman that was praising Mary was saying blessed is the womb that bear you and the paps you have sucked but Jesus was talking bout another Woman the world that is gonna birth a baby Christ that is more blessed then MARY rather blessed are them that hear the Word ( that good seed ) and keeps it. That good seed is gonna make the WORLD HIS Mother he said the field is the world where that good seed is gona be sown which is humanity that is gonna give birth simply b/c of that good seed that is gonna be sown in THE FIELD. i.e the world is gonna be more blessed then MARY simply b/c we are gonna have a baby Christ THE SON OF MAN,MANKINDS FRUIT UNTO GOD via that good seed . ( them that hear the word that good seed ) and keeps it . I.E. the new birth via that good seed . Remember he said if i be lifted up i will draw ALL MEN unto me THE WORLD, God so loved the world etc. Jesus asked who is my Mother then he said them that hear the WORD and keeps it bringing forth fruit unto God. Its the CHURCH the bride that is gonna birth a baby Christ which is the H.G. the CHILD OF PROMISE thus in a sense the Church is greater then Mary. 27 times in the O.T. the prophets saw the world in travail and birth pains thus the world is gona have a baby Christ ,That was the great PROMISE i will multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven thus the world is gona have a baby Christ the SON OF MAN OK GBU. He wants the world to be his mother. Finally the woman gives birth to a baby Christ which is the manchild THE H.G.that is gona rule all nations. Which answers to the ISRAEL OF GOD. I know its a bit deep but David said we wd go down to sea in ships( fellow ship ) and do business in deep waters ( in the spritual realm.) ok gbu

    The mentioning of lawyers in this passage & others is not how we understand that profession & their work today. In Jesus' day, lawyers were 'doctors of traditions'. They were famous for multiplying men's religious obligations often with 'hair splitting' interpretations making them extremely grievous for people to bear. And they were skilled in showing their obedience to these traditions but in fact were avoiding it themselves. It was a case of 'preaching what others should do yet not practising what they preach'. And how guilty some preachers are today: giving long & careful exposition of the Word in all piety, but leading lives inconsistent to what they proclaim. To these, Jesus came down heavily & called them 'hypocrites', as He did to the scribes & pharisees.

    Lawyers today have a similar work of examining the Law with a 'fine toothed comb' to ensure that their clients get the best possible outcome, but their profession restricts them to defending (or, prosecuting) rather than one of enforcement. So in one sense, the lawyers of Jesus' day could be likened to the law enforcing officials of today, without the matter of hypocrisy becoming an issue as it was for the Jews in those days.

  • Chris - in Reply on Luke 11
    Dylan, you've touched on several aspects of God's dealing with us.

    Firstly, when the Bible speaks of 'election' it means that God had in the distant past selected those that would be His children, receive His favour & partake of His Kingdom. Israel is said to be His elect (e.g. Isaiah 45:4) & now those also who have now come to Him for salvation through Jesus Christ His Son (e.g. Colossians 3:12). So if a person does not fall into those categories (i.e. Israel & those born again of God's Spirit), they are not classified as the Elect of God. If a person leads a good life & is generous with his goods to others, this still does not make him acceptable to God, since not one person, bar Christ, was ever good enough to please God ( Romans 3:10, 23).

    Now, there's another word similar in meaning to 'election', & that is 'predestination'. These words are almost interchangeable except 'predestination' is used exclusively to born again believers who have been predestined (again, we were appointed before time), to partake in the adoption process. That is, believers might have been elected to be partakers of Kingdom Life, but we have also been appointed to go through the adoption process whereby God, in Love & Mercy, takes someone not in His original family & brings him into His family because of his faith in Jesus Christ. (see Ephesians 1:5, 11). So as a result of our adoption, our predestination into God's Family includes that we don't have Hell as our destiny, but Heaven.

    The Bible doesn't speak of any other place where people who die can go to, except Heaven or Hell. Some religions teach falsely of an intermediary place (e.g. purgatory), for a period of further cleansing so as to enter Heaven, but Jesus always taught that there are only two places ( Matthew 18:1-11, for an example of either entering Heaven or Hell). And the decision we make on Earth now determines where our eventual destiny will be. Some mistakenly believe they are on the right way but..for Proverbs 14:12.

    Wesley's Notes for Luke 11:52

    11:52 Ye have taken away the key of knowledge - Ye have obscured and destroyed the knowledge of the Messiah, which is the key of both the present and the future kingdom of heaven; the kingdom of grace and glory. Ye have not entered in - Into the present kingdom of heaven.

    People's Bible Notes for Luke 11:52

    Lu 11:52 Taken away the key of knowledge. Matthew, in different words, gives the thought. " Mt 23:12".

    The Pharisees highly resented everything Jesus said about himself. The refused Him as the Son of God, Messiah: and they sought to have him arrested for Blasphemy.

    Try to read the Gospels one after another and you will see the works of the Pharisees, Sadducees and the Scribes.
