    The Blessed Hope.
    Is that hope? To me its an assurance. It's a sure thing.
    I'm not "hoping" Jesus will return, I know He will return.
    Amen.

    I'm attaching a good link to Qot Questions for some that might be reading along.

    I believe in satan with my mind; the English type of believe.
    I believe in Jesus with my will and my heart and my mind, the Greek type of believe.

    (some, unfortunately DO believe in satan, the Greek type of believe)

    And since this is a casual discussion...

    Why is it that girls are named: Grace, Hope, and Faith and not guys?
    Why give someone that name to begin with?

    I don't even want to start with "Chastity".

    Why Jason?
    Esperar. To hope.

    Italian....
    Sperare... To hope
    Credere... To believe
    Fede... Faith

    Seems the same to me...

    Yes, believing has to come first as even the devils believed in Christ, James 2:19, but had no faith for Christ is our faith in all things we as a child of God hope for.

    There are six requirements to Salvation that actually all come at the same time.
    1. Belief John 3:15
    2. Confession - Acts 2:21; Romans 10:9, 10
    3. Repentance - Mark 1:14, 15
    4. Faith - John 3:14-18
    5. Regeneration - John 3:3-8
    6. Holy Scripture - 2 Timothy 3:15

    Hi Allen, it's not that complicated (Heb. 11:1) (Rom. 8:23-25) (Rom. 4:18; 8:20) (2 Cor. 4:18; 5:7) (1 Thes. 5:8) (Titus 3:7) (Jeremiah 17:7)
    In Christ

    Devils cannot have hope as we hope.
    That's how powerful hope is...

    I'm not reading Scripture as an answer.
    This is the Lounge, not a Bible study or anything else.
    You should be trying to translate those verses to me in a casual manner, unless, of course, it's too much bother.
    After all, if one must interpret Scripture themselves, then why post it at all?

    Devils, which are fallen angels, have no hope for the ones who followed after Satan have already sealed their fate.

    The meaning of hope to we who are in Christ and He in us is that we have hope based on a feeling of confident expectation in all the promises of God for our well being as God only wants the best for us and will always supply our needs.

    ???? It was for your encouragement (The Scriptures) You asked questions about hope. Scripture answered them...Sorry? They answered everything you asked. As a pastor / teacher, I have never thought of Scripture or fellowship as casual, but rather encouraging, fortifying and grounding in a common faith among believers. I'm not much of a philosophizer.

    Because using translations and knowledge of what is trying to be said in the bible is wrong?

    The idea to wait,to hope in that verb used is the the idea of you know a bus is coming ,yoi simply stand in the right spot waiting for it.English doesn't have a word for that Spanish does.

    Allen will answer for himself, but...
    Your post shows the o.p. was misunderstood by you...
    A.W. isn't looking for encouragement...although it's never too much!
    Unless a thread is by someone I don't know, I assume the poster knows the answer to his questions but would like to discuss it or hear other opinions.

    I liked the post you refer to, but it's the Road to Romans and not really the subject of the o.p.

    Hi FHG

    Of course, I agree...
    I'd just like to say that not everyone who becomes saved had necessarily read the Bible.
    Al ost ten years passed between salvation and Bible, in my case.
    And I know of some saved persons who never read it!
