    Revelation 2:5

    5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

    James 4:8

    8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

    Revelation 3:3

    3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

    Acts 3:19

    "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;"

    Matthew 6:9-10

    Betty:

    You want your prayer to always be answer:

    Matthew 6:9 After this manner always pray ye:

    Matthew 6:10 ....THY WILL BE DONE....

    Philippians 2:13 For it is God that worketh IN YOU both TO WILL and TO DO his good pleasure.

    Colossians 2:27 ...this mystery .....Christ in you ....

    1 Corinthians 12:27 ....ye are the BODY OF CHRIST .....

    John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come (the life of Christ in you), he will guide you into all truth .....

    God Bless you, the body or life and truth.

    That is refreshing in a way. There are obvious guidelines; such as the book of James elaborates on (not praying to gratify the flesh and not being double minded). A large part of communication with the Holy Spirit involves us trusting God for all things whatever the apparent outcome; which in the short term frequently is not seen clearly. We also heed to the scripture in Hebrews about Christ being the High Priest ever interceding for us. In other words; He perfects the communication so that it is a clear presentation to God; which of course would involve His understanding of the perfect will for those good works prepared for us from before the foundation of the world. Normally; I would share the scriptures themselves but I am afraid with all the tabs on my computer I'll wipe out this page should I look them up now.....

    As important as it is to be God honoring; as well as us meditating on the scriptures day and night so that we can formulate thoughts and learn to know the ways of God so we are mindful of His will for our lives; it isn't good to be too restrained either; as to content or time frames for organized corporate prayer. A good principle is to look to the needs of others before ourselves; and that is largely through discernment and not being overly obsessed with our own family; friends and lives. It also involves finding those who are walking Godly lives as resources and AVOIDING those who are tampering with false doctrines or have a lifestyle of sin in terms of the same. We don't want someone invoking an evil spirit to our favor.

    It is good to be ready in season and out for not only evangelism but being available for prayer. People have different giftings; and it shouldn't be a pride thing; but sadly most have no idea when they are endowed with say; and unusual unction of faith.

    And sometimes prayers are answered either right away; or much later suddenly this occurs. We need to ever heed the Spirit in all we say and do.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Annette.

    Romans 1:18. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against ALL UNGODLINESS AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS OF MEN, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

    This verse applies to everyone who has not accepted Christ.

    ( the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against ALL UNGODLINESS AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS OF MEN, who hold the truth in unrighteousness)

    Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

    Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    AND SUCH WERE SOME OF YOU: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

    1 Corinthians 6:9-11.

    No one will make it to heaven off their own righteousness.

    It is the righteousness of Christ imputed unto us is what declares us spotless.

    Yes we minister to everyone.

    God bless.

    People accused Jesus of going to eat dinner at the house of a "tax collector." Luke 19:1-10. Jesus spent time with an "adulteress" John 4. He spent much of His ministry around "sinners." We're all sinners.

    But yes, there are verses supporting avoiding people and avoiding trouble. Jesus fled to avoid being arrested/beaten, before it was His time. He left people to be alone to pray. He said He wasn't respected in His own town with His own family. It says this about not being welcomed: Luke 9:5. It says avoid foolish arguments Titus 3:9-11 and avoid divisive people or heretics. It says this specifically about Christians ( Matthew 18:16-17) when confronting about an issue like sin. So it seems the answer is it depends.

    Found this page too which might have more verses: Link God bless.

    Are we not to have anything to do with those people or share the gospel because they receive the wrath of God and if you communicate with them does it mean you approve of who they are.

    Many times I have read and reread these words of Paul. A man who would have rather killed you as to look at you. A man who had every intention to succeed in the realm of the synaguage, the priesthood, excelling in all those things concerning wisdom and knowledge .

    There are those today, like Saul, think they do Gods service in the things of this world, who like Saul , are even so in the church today!

    Approving those things that would damn the soul into eternal death, even killing you ,while they think they do Gods service!

    Men, who have changed the truth of God into a lie! Who, through the wisdom and knowledge of their own desires have made themselves like unto Gods.

    Paul understands these things better than anyone! He knows why God has chosen Him in the things of God,while condeming yet revealing the truth, to those who would listen!

    Do we need not change His words, so we might have a better understanding?

    These words are as real as they have ever been, the mirror that continues to reveal the truth of man in His natural state of sin!

    How appropiate God has done these things to save man from sin! Hopefully, He will listen?

    Repent and be Baptized

    Melchizedek was a mysterious person described in Genesis 14. His ancestory/genealogy or any other detail about him is not given in the Bible, thats why it is written that he is "Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually."

    He is written that he was king of Salem, salem meaning peace, probably Jerusalem. He was a priest. But he was not a Hebrew, he didn't belong to the tribe of Levi who had the priesthood according to Mose's Law. Anyway he lived before Moses. The Hebrew priests were in charge in the temple for a year, then another priest would be in charge. They were changed continually. But Melhizedek was priest for all his life, he wasn't substituted by somebody else. So Paul says in his epistle to Hebrews that Christ was a priest like Melchizedek, that is that He will not hand His priesthood to somebody else, for as long He lives, that is for ever He keeps priesthood forever. (This is a good point to those Christians that have priests in their churches. Were did they get the priesthood from since Jesus doesn't hand it to somebody else?)

    In a few words Pauls tells to Jews that the Old Law that involved priests and animal sacrificies has been substituted by the sacrifice of the Lamb/Christ who remains our Priest for ever.

    Would you want to fallow a GOD that made you do whatever HE wanted you to do?. Walk around like a bunch of robots saying "I love you GOD" or would you want to fallow a GOD that gave you the choice? GOD created us for HIS pleasure and if we don't please HIM, we will be done away with once and for all after White Throne judgement. There are a remnant and a few elect that are predestined meaning GOD will push them in the direction HE needs them to go. Paul's freewill was to destroy the church but CHRIST had other plans for him. My free will is to fallow GOD with all my heart, soul and mind for I know how great the reward for doing right and how great the judgement for doing wrong. What kind of life would it be if we had a GOD that made us do right? GOD created every single individual, unique and for HIS pleasure. The 1st earth age all HIS creation lived in love, peace and harmony where even Lucifer sang with CHRIST both called morning stars for their brilliance. Millions if not billions of years in harmony until Satan wanted it all and the downfall where he drew a 1/3 of Gods children with him. They had free will.

    Romans 1:22

    Romans 1:22

    Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

    In America we see fools in high places saying foolish things, not because they are stupid, but because they are estranged from the wisdom of God.

    For one example, we recently saw a SCOTUS nominee saying she did not know the meaning of the word "woman."
  • Philip Christian Parks on Romans 1
    a reprobate mind; v.28 = The term "mind", as a noun, refers to one's human knowledge and intelligence stored within the brain, and the faculty of mentally processing that knowledge and intelligence motivated by emotion, intent, purpose, and the desired result.

    The mind's mental processes provide the ability to make decisions based on comprehension and differentiation. The mind formulates one's discernment, opinions, viewpoints, morals, convictions, and beliefs. (cp. Eph. 2:3).

    Contextually, depravity and rejection of all things Holy and GODly motivates this mind into the state of "reprobation" leaving GOD to "give them over" to their own sinful will to multiply sin upon sin. Sexual sins are commonly the lowest type of sins of which the sinner sinks into a state of "reprobate".

    The adjective "reprobate" means they fail GOD's spiritual test thoroughly in every point and in every way. Thus, GOD rejects them as unfit, spurious, and unusable and "gives them up" ( Rom. 1:24, 26, & 28) to their own carnal devices which they often blend into their religious beliefs and practices (cp. Tit. 1:16). Such become a "castaway", a word which translates from the same Greek adjective, and a condition of which Paul greatly feared ( 1Cor. 9:27).

    Sadly, these reprobates do not lightly come to this condition, for many put great efforts into achieving this reprobation as Paul declared in Romans Chapter One.

    Of note, the same Greek adjective root translated here into "reprobate" and into "castaway" ( 1Cor. 9:27) also translates into "rejected" in Hebrews 6:8.

    The Apostle Paul ( Romans 1:1), who was originally named Saul ( Acts 7:58) of Tarsus ( Acts 22:3), but eventually became known as Paul ( Acts 13:9), dictated the letter to Tertius ( Romans 16:22). The account of most of what is known about his life story was written about by Luke in the Book of Acts. Acts 7:58-60, Acts 8:1-4, Acts 9:1-31, Acts 11:25-30, Acts 12:24-25, Acts 13 to Acts 28.

    The Apostle Paul is recognized as the author of most of the Epistles (Apostolic letters) in the New Testament, which include Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians. Ephesians. Philippians, Colossians, 1 Thessalonians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus and Philemon. Some also consider him the author of Hebrews, but the authorship of that book is not known for sure.

    Peter also speaks about Paul in 2 Peter 3:15-16.

  • Manuel Teixeira on Romans 1
    Yes, since Abel's faith, until Jesus's Faith, all th way along what is writen on hebrewes's eleventh chapter. I too, can grow from justification, like the good thief had at the cross, instantaneously justified, and in peace, just based on Jesus's Faith. He observed Jesus's behavior, in contrast with the other thief's despair, remembered Lazarus's ressurection, and had faith in Jesus's love and Power over death, as simply as a younger brother on his elder one. The good thief decided to believe in Jesus, as The Truth, THe Way and The Life, and god's Messiah. He believed that Jesus was able to ressurect him, like Abraham did, when facing Isaak's imminent sacrifice, received his son back, as if being ressurected from the dead.

    Santification and Jesus's good deeds, on believer's life, result from The Peace that comes, with Holy Spirit's in believer's mind, after accepting Jesus's bood mrits, transforming and renewing.
