Dear Brother thesaintman, having believed on Jesus, Joh 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
In Christ our Father sees only the new nature of Him in you.
1Jn 5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but He (Jesus) that is begotten of God keepeth himself (Us, His body), and that wicked one (Satan) toucheth him not.
To what purpose I don’t realize yet, but if not set apart, sanctified, or made holy by “God I can realize no purpose in being spared from some of the things I’ve been through, and we are seen in the new nature of Christ.
One never has to summon Gods Spirit (Trinity = Father, Son,Holy Spirit) as God will never leave us or forsake us as He goes before us.
Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
BTW thesaintman, why do you never give explanations to your can you say me it's. Like to hear your understandings would be refreshing..........maybe!!!
In an effort to assist thesaintman in collecting his thoughts, I've merged some of his threads into one. Mr. Saintman, I'm going to have to try to keep up with me. Please help me help you by posting here instead of starting new threads that you don't return to.
Good morning Brother thesaintman. Are you wanting created angels, or human messengers also know as angels?
Heb 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels (Implying a pastor or someone with a message for you instance) unawares.
An example of that was in Rev 1:20 . . . The seven stars are the angels (or pastors) of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.
Hi thesaintman; good to see you. God’s word is God’s word, and as we grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord (2 Pet 3:18), we begin to see the context of scripture more clearly. Even where we may disagree, God receives us.
The following scripture can be used for many issues concerning the differences among us as to doctrines we proclaim as truth. Why does one Christian not eat pork for instance? Are they attempting to refrain from sin? Another son of God in Christ has the freedom to eat anything: is that due to spiritual growth?
Rom 14:3 Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.
Rom 14:6 . . . He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.
Now for the sake of a Christian brother, I may not eat pork in front of him, lest he become brave watching me, eat some and it hurts his conscience.
