17 YEAR OLD NON-RESIDENT CRETAN CONGREGATION MEMBER
I was just re-listening to your messages from last week, and to put it lightly I’m freaking out because you’ve pretty much just destroyed the main edifice of my spiritual knowledge that I’ve been holding onto for all 17 years of my life.
“I (the Lord Jesus Christ) have many more things to say to you (for your benefit), but you cannot bear (carry the weight of) them now.”
For to me, to live is (occupation with) Christ and to die is gain (profitable).
Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death? //Thanks (for grace) be to God (the Father) through Jesus Christ our Lord (for freeing me)!
17 YEAR OLD NON-RESIDENT CRETAN CONGREGATION MEMBER
I decided to do research…
Do you see any biblical connection between confessing your sins and the filling of the Spirit?
“I love those who love me; and those who diligently seek me will find me.”
So I (the Lord Jesus Christ) say to you, “(Keep on) Ask(ing), and it will be given to you; (keep on) seek(ing), and you will find; (keep on) knock(ing), and it will be opened to you.”
“For everyone who (keeps on) ask(ing), receives; and he who (keeps on) seek(ing), finds; and to him who (keeps on) knock(ing), it will be opened.”
“Now suppose one of you (human) fathers is asked by his son for a fish; he will not give him a snake instead of a fish, will he?”
“Or if he (the human father) is asked for an egg, he will not give him (his son) a scorpion, will he?”
“If you (human fathers) then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give (the wisdom of God) the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?”
All the Words
When I Think About Home
But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.//Early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people were coming to Him; and He sat down and began to teach them.
The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery, and having set her in the center of the court…
…they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in adultery, in the very act.”
“Now in the (Mosaic) Law Moses commanded us to stone such women; what then do You say?”
They were saying this, testing Him, so that they might have grounds for accusing Him (either of disobeying the Mosaic Law or of not being grace oriented). But Jesus stooped down and with His finger wrote on the ground.
But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.”
Again He stooped down and wrote on the ground.//When they heard it, they began to go out (and they kept on going) one by one, beginning with the older ones, and He was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in the center of the court.
Straightening up, Jesus said to her, “Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?”
She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “I do not condemn you, either. Go. From now on sin no more.”
No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able 9to bear), but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.
Even so consider yourselves to be dead to (the sovereignty of the) sin (nature), but alive to God (the Father) in (union with) Christ Jesus.
Therefore do not let (the) sin (nature’s sovereignty) reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts…
…and do not go on presenting the members of your body to (the) sin (nature) as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and (present) your members (of your body) as instruments of righteousness to God.
For (the) sin (nature) shall not be master over you, for you are not under (Mosaic) law but (you are) under (the liberty of) grace.
My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous…
…and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.
Rebound and Keep Moving! - Page 4
If the sin problem was resolved at the Cross, why is sin still an issue? If all sins are already paid for, why must you rebound? To be forgiven! Sins were not forgiven at the Cross. Only the penalty of sin is removed once and for all at the Cross. Christ’s substitutionary Spiritual death accomplishes redemption, but not forgiveness.
“What makes deception successful?”
It’s not what you learn…it’s what you believe.
The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.// “Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher, “Vanity of vanities! All is vanity.”
The conclusion, when all has been heard, is: fear (respect) God and keep His commandments (requests), because this applies to every person.
CRITICAL THOUGHT FOR BIBLICAL STUDY
What does the bible have to say about the biblical doctrine from the Word of God that is under consideration?
Now these (the believers at Berea) were…noble-minded…for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.
