    Question: : Is a man obligated to form a bond with a granddaughter if it causes strife with his present wife even though there was little or no bond with the child who was fathered by the man before he and his wife got married. The wife knew about the outside child before marriage took place but changed her mind later on

    I've searched scripture but haven't found answers to this situation

    Moses meeting with GOD, Exodus 3:2-14, Exodus 24, Exodus 33, Exodus 40,

    Hopefully these are helpful

    Hebrews 12:29

    For our God is a consuming fire.

    Deuteronomy 4:24

    For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.

    Remember the movie 10 commandments? Moses saw the burning bush, which was not consumed?

    How does Moses describe God's appearance?

    May the fruit of the spirit be with us still.let labours labor and supply saount of their riches; and be graceful to the bowels for the love of a mother. Stay afloat and be plentiful amongst the zest. Keep a faithful heart and love forever . He too is us. Keep your strength. The hair is beautiful just as well. I'll keep the must.

    I find the word of the Lord comforting, encouraging and necessary;So that we can see ourselves.The word can be hidden to our Spirit. When we read life with in us is rebirthed.

    In Philemon how wonderfully The Apostle Paul shows us that lovingly we are to forgive others who have wronged us, as we desire forgiveness too. And God grant that we become more like Christ through sanctification to lovingly and willingly open ourselves to forgiveness of others. In Jesus name, Amen.

    what does it mean, when it is said that God will meet all our needs?
  • Jesse - In Reply on Philemon 1 - 3 years ago
    Yes,

    Also, I see a beautiful picture of how the book of Philemon parallels God's grace and mercy. Onesimus, being a runaway slave who had stolen from his master Philemon, and back in those days, if a slave ran away and was caught, they would be put to death. So here is Onesimus who stole from his master Philemon and ran away. But somehow he gets put into prison in Rome, and who does he run into? Paul. They didn't know each other. And so Onesimus hears Paul preaching and teaching the gospel. And Paul is ministering to him, so Onesimus receives Christ and is saved.

    And Onesimus tells Paul what he did. He stole from his master and ran away, and that's why he's in Rome. So Paul inquires as to where he's from and he says Colossae. So Paul says I've been to Colossae and I know some people from Colossae. What's the man's name? He says Philemon. And Paul says I know Philemon. He has the church in his home in Colossae.

    So it is interesting how God worked all of this. You think you can travel 1,000 miles away so you won't get caught, but God has someone waiting on the other end. How I see the parallel to our salvation is that we have sinned against God (Our master) and the wages of sin is death. But Jesus Christ paid our debt. In Philemon, Onesimus sinned against his master Philemon. But Paul writes to Philemon and says whatever he has stolen from you; whatever the debt is that he owes you, I will repay it back to you myself. What a beautiful picture of grace and mercy!

    did you ever wonder in the back of your mind why this book is in the bible? Gary stearns (prophecy today) teaches it's a picture of the useless servant coming to Christ and going back to his master as profitable. Like the body of christ going home to be used by God,
  • Jesse - In Reply on Philemon 1 - 3 years ago
    Thanks for sharing that Chris. I would definitely go with your answer over mine. Yours is more sincere. I hope this is what Cyndi was looking for. Either way, I was enlightened by your answer. O.T. is definitely not one of my strong areas, so there's much I can learn there, and I appreciate you sharing your knowledge.
  • Chris - In Reply on Philemon 1 - 3 years ago
    Jesse, good one!! Actually, in Jer 4:16: apparently the watchers were Chaldean soldiers (who came from a far country) to encompass Jerusalem so that none of its inhabitants would escape. I would imagine that they might have appeared quite 'emaciated' by the time of the siege! And Dan 4:13,17,23: "this matter is by the decree of the watchers...of the holy ones..". Here, I believe that the reference is to the angels who were ready to perform the LORD's edict for the punishment of Nebuchadnezzar, because of his elevation to divine status (vv 24,25).

    But then again, Cydni may be referring to something else since it shouldn't be of much concern what happened later on to the Chaldean soldiers or to the angels.
  • Jesse - In Reply on Philemon 1 - 3 years ago
    If I'm not mistaken, I think they lost weight. Please take no offense at that, as I mean none. I'm just not sure what you are asking?

    Lola,

    I would take both verses to be literal. Verse 10 is telling us that when the Lord does come and bring judgement, it's going to be a surprise to the non-believers. He will come like a "Thief in the night." But it won't be a surprise for us. Paul says in 1 Thessalonians Chapter 5 Verses 4 and 5, "But you brethren are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief."

    And Verse 12 is showing the consciousness of believers, conscious that he's coming at any moment. The "day of God" is His day of judgement. So the remainder of the verse should be taken to be literal judgement.

    But Paul goes on to say in 1 Thessalonians 5:9, "For God has not appointed us to wrath, that is, judgment, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. God hasn't appointed us to be judged, but rather salvation.

    We have been already pardoned,forgiven,justified, and accepted by God, we are being refashioned and made ready to live in the presence of the wondrous Christ. It is the indwelling Christ who gives us the strength and the power to live a Christian life. ( 1Peter 5:7 -KJV) Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
  • Mishael in 1 Peter 57 - In Reply on Philemon 1 - 3 years ago
    LYNN: when I trusted Jesus it was the worst and the best day of my life. I didn't learn much in church when I was young. I heard about God and Jesus, but they didn't speak about the Holy Spirit. After a years of pain and loneliness the day of Salvation came. I received Jesus. The next morning everything looked the same but different. I did things without knowing why. Later I would find out it was the Holy Spirit. He comforted me while showing me how to be free of all the emotional pain I had lived. I started reading the Bible and haven't laid it down since. I have never known a love so deep and wide as God's love. Song of Solomon 2:16, 6:3, 7:10, I was smitten with the deepest feeling of belonging and being loved no matter what! If I made mistakes I was so afraid He'd stop loving me. It was day by day, and learning how to depend on someone to love me no matter what. Receive Jesus and his gift, Holy Spirit. You'll never walk alone again. Open the door of your heart. God cares.
