"When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things."
1 Corinthians 13:11 (KJV)

Right now I am feeling as though I took the bait. Nevertheless, I responded to what you asked for, my understanding of scripture on speaking in tongues. I did not share my full understanding, and now I'm glad I didn't. You've responded 4 times to my post and there are some things you said that spark my interest, and yet I'm not sure how to respond without you feeling as though I'm trying to argue, so it's probably best that I stay away from this one. But just so you know, I think no differently of you because you speak in tongues. You are always respectful and I value our relationship in Christ.
7/29/2021, 7:42pm by "Chris": Thank you Steph for sharing that. I do agree that one could look at that verse in the way you suggest, even citing proof of the ever-decreasing years that each one of us has to live. Also considering Psalm 90:10, "The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away." However, in Genesis 6:1-7, the compelling message here is of God's great displeasure in the ever increasing wickedness of man & that God had subsequently set a time limit when the righteous would escape & the unrepentant sinner would perish. "My Spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh", seems to indicate that God's Spirit would no longer contend with man in the flesh, but to deal with his spirit in that appointed day. That is, there needs to be a destruction of the flesh so that the spirit might be released for judgement. We can see an allusion to this in the NT: 1 Corinthians 5:5, "To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus", as Paul had to deal with fornication in the Church, which the Church failed to do. Destruction of the flesh here certainly meant suffering, possibly death, & that the sinning soul would be excommunicated & face certain personal calamities or else he comes to his senses, repents, be restored into fellowship, that his spirit might yet be saved. Even though the sinner in 1 Corinthians was given time to repent, though if he refused, his days would be shortened because of suffering & death (also 1 Corinthians 11:29,30). Likewise, God had allotted mankind 120 years of life, under the testimony & preaching of Noah (2 Peter 2:5) as God's Anger reached its limit with them, but Noah's testimony was rejected resulting in both the destruction of the flesh & their spirits held captive awaiting judgement.

They lost focus on what God told them. Our five senses heads do the same thing, from time to time, If you choose to read Romans 7:14-21 very insightful. With Adam and Eve I don't dwell on where there heads were but learn where to keep mine. God Bless
7/29/2021, 6:01pm by "Dianne": S Spencer Prayerfully you took that as a compliment because before being born again maybe peter was stubborn, but after being born again our brother was spiritual tnt, and definitely sold out and locked in. I about cracked at your reply brother.
7/29/2021, 5:55pm by "Dianne": Derek Hello If you look at the world you'll get frustrated when you look at Gods Word and work in Jesus Christ its truth and you get Comforted Peaceful and Blessed. Remember the world is a disorganized lie, Gods word and its promises are truth, Jesus Christ the SAme Yesterday Today and Forever. God Bless

7/29/2021, 5:11pm by "Derek": What is truth? John 18:38 Is everything we see and believe from the media true about covid? Would we trust this info with our lives? What if it wasn't true? Unfortunately in this current culture people are attacked and shamed for asking basic questions. Would someone telling the truth normally be afraid of questions? Can't the truth hold up to respectful scrutiny? I do not trust what I see and hear in the news or on TV. There have been too many lies already told and there's no credibility left. First the origin of the corona virus was denied that it came from the corona virus lab. We were supposed to believe it came from a wet market, rather than the exact lab the US helped fund to make strong viruses. Why anyone would be funded to do that in I have no idea, as it just seems irresponsible. Next, you were told to stay at home and wear masks. Public parks were closed. Fresh open air is the best thing for people but it was closed. The masks then cause bacteria buildup and people inhale the bacteria into their lungs causing pneumonia which is deadly. But even though the holes in a mask are larger than the size of the virus and even though people can have some CO2 buildup and adverse health effects and even though science doesn't support masks, no one questions the masks. Next, the CDC lied about the death count. They admit in fine print only 6% died from covid, then they reduced it to 5%, now 2.5%. Then strangely all flu deaths went away because they counted them as covid. Then you have an antidote- HCQ and Ivermectin which have been tested by tens of thousands with no adverse side effects. But most doctors banned it. If anyone wants to get it you still can through speakwithanmd dot com. You can see all the studies at c19hcq dot com and click on ivermectin at the top. Then you have an experimental untested non-FDA-approved injection they call a 'vaccine' rushed to market. Now tens of thousands of people died from it, but the media never admits it. It's buried on the VAERS reporting system. Lies. Sick. Evil. Satanic. These must be the end times!
