Irene (cont.) and when Solomon had that dream when God appeared to him, and told him to ask whatever he wanted; what was in his heart was to be like his father David in his ability to care for Israel. If he had secret pride, as you say, how did God not see it afar off, and confront him with that evil in his heart? you are mistaken about that! God saw what was in his heart, and was pleased to give!
Jenny; Acts is amazing. One reads of the very beginning of Jesus' church here, ch. 2. To actually read of this beginning of 2,000 yrs, ago - and it's TRUTH, not 'conjecture', Jn. 17:17 - " ... thy Word is truth." Peter opened this truth to all peoples when he used the 'keys' Jesus gave him in Acts 2:38. Key 1, Repent; key 2, be baptized; key 3, in the name of Jesus Christ ..... "; H.G. was free.
AND SISTERS IN HIS WORD SISTER GLEN
Barnabas (cont.) Jesus told the Jews who proudly pretended to be above believing in Christ, because they were "disciples of Moses;" that they really didn't believe Moses' writings and therefore how could they believe Jesus' words? After centuries of defiance and disobedience to the faith; what was essentially different in them now by an empty outward show of religion, while inwardly still defiant?
This is my favorite passage
Our world leaders do have the 'wisdom' of Solomon; that's why the Word of God says to PRAY for them - 1 Tim. 2:1-3
Even Moses took the advice of his father-in-law in judging God's people. Moses knew it was too much for him. Solomon's pride took him into idolatry and child sacrifice; he died in sin.
And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things. Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; Jesus Christ tells us all from beginning to end. He never tells untruth. He gives us all a way to live the fullest in righteousness
What was stated as the testimony of Jesus Christ is a very small portion of the testimony of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the Word of God.
Jacob did not worship the true God and following Jacob prevents salvation. Jesus is the water of salvation, do not mix the old testament with the new. Those that drink a Jacobs well will always thirst meaning lack salvation. Jesus is the Son of God not a son of Davids linage.
