  3. Yah, one can go in a dry devil and come out a wet one if their heart isn't right with God first. Love, Madeline
  4. I love the snow, too bad it never snows where I live. :(
  5. Ban kevinmiller for mostly posting in the fun and games forum.
  6. The bible warns us of not being able forgive others (Matt. 6:14,15; 18:35; Acts 8:22-23; Heb. 12:15; Col. 3:19; James 3:14). And that we are to replace our bitterness with kindness, love and forgiveness (Lev. 19:18; Eph 4:31-32; 1 Pet. 4:8). Biterness and unforgiveness left unchecked can lead to outward murmuring and complaining (Job. 7:11), so how do we deal with this? The scripture tells us let not the sun go down upon our wrath, forgive in prayer, and forgive as Christ forgave us, how do we deal with unforgiveness? (Matt. 5:23,24; Mk. 11:25; Rom. 8:28; 12:2; Eph. 4:23,26-27; Phil. 3:13; Col. 3:13). We are also told that forgiveness must be unconditional on our part (Matt. 18:21-2;2; Mk. 11:25,6; Lk. 17:3,4; Col. 3:12,13; Gal. 6:1). True forgiveness 'from the heart' of a regenerate person is one of the signs of genuine salvation and conversion (cf. Eph. 4:32). Saved people are both forgiven and forgiving. Unforgiving people prove that they have never been born of God. Love, Madeline
  7. Ban hermanj for having over 4,000 posts :frog
  8. Ban hermanj because he spelled because(becuase)wrong. :frog
  9. Ban nodnarb for having a poor excuse for banning jim.
  10. Lets just say that if there is no conviction when we sin, then were probably not saved. The Holy Spirit convicts saved people of sins, and brings people to repentance. Love, Madeline
  11. [quote="cbailey"] Well more power to ya! God has blessed you with more bravado that I've been given but let me ask you 'do you think our Lord and Saviour surprised those whom he stated "I never knew you"? I'm okay with simple trust in Him. It's all I've got and it's all I can give. When one is at the end of one's rope trust is all we really have and I find it very liberating. [/quote] [color=magenta]1 John 3:20,21 - For [u]if our heart condemn us[/u], God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. Beloved, [u]if our heart condemn us not[/u], then have we confidence toward God[/color] The word of God assures us that, although our feeble attempts to honor God may leave us feeling defeated inside, God is greater than our self-awareness (cf. 1 Cor. 4:4) and can justify us even when we would condemn ourselves. He sees not only our actions, which at times are thwarted or misguided, but also the motives and intentions behind them. If our hearts condemn us not, we have confidence toward God if our lives are in line with the standard of Christian living set forth. John is not saying that whether a person is right or wrong is simply a metter of how they subjectively feel about themself. That is why John has given so many indicators and commands for Christians to take note of and assess themselves by. And one of the great results of a life lived in purity before God is a life where there is effective prayer. Right living is an important part of successful praying. :wink: Love, Madeline
  12. There are also words in the KJV which are inserted to match the context, but are not in the original. They are the ones in [brackets] in concordances. [color=magenta]The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged? Some [said], This is he: others said, He is like him: [but] he said, I am [he].(John 9:8,9)[/color] If we remove 'he' then we have the beggar saying the predicateless 'I am' which is the title Jesus used when the Jews wanted to stone him. But some of you already know this. Love, Madeline
