  1. Thank you all, this is wonderful. I can not wait to learn and share his message with the world. @swathdiver - I will start by saying this, most of my life I had been an atheist. I often dismissed the idea of there being a God and was quite cold to those who tried to convince me otherwise. I was in the city running a few errands and I had just stopped for a coffee. As it was a nice day I sat outside and then someone began preaching. As always I tried to ignore what was being said. I sat there and a voice appeared in my head that said, you are ready, go forward. I didn't understand why but I
  2. Yes that is correct 1Tim. Jerry is that sarcasm? God speaks to us all in different ways and yes I believe what I saw. I can feel the Holy Spirit in me on a daily basis and like to believe that when we sleep we are at peace. This was a perfect place to receive the message. I do not know why but I am feeling that you are displaying a level of hatred towards me. Does God not want us to love one another. If you had received this message I would be praising the Lord that he reached out and spoke to you.
  3. Hi, I am going to get right to the point, I want to learn the Gospel so that I can share it with others. The problem I have is when I search for it online I can not seem to find it anywhere. Would anyone be so kind to either link me to a webpage where it is or write it down for me on here? God Bless you.
  4. You mean the message I received whilst sleeping? Sure. The night before I went with my parents to see a new film called the devil inside and as always this focussed more on the Catholic Church. Once I got home I became intrigued about what other Churches or religious groups think/deal with the topic of exorcisms. I posted on here that evening, that is the first post you see above, but was going to wait until today to see my Minister during Sunday Service to ask him. I went to sleep as normal, although quite early that evening. Whilst sleeping I remember seeing a tall person with a bright whi
  5. Lord we thank you for your guidance and wisdom and let it be known that our thoughts are with the families of those who were killed in a shooting last week. Lord please help guide their families and bring forward eternal rest to those who lost their lives. We ask that you continue to guide us and help us follow your word. We ask that you spread peace out across the land and spread your light and condemn all evil in the name of your Son Jesus Christ. Continue to bring hope to the masses and help us to work against injustice and suffering. AMEN.
  6. Today I wish to talk about forgiveness. I think this is important as we approach Easter the time of which Jesus Christ died for our Sins. The subject of forgiveness is often not an easy one, there is often a cloud floating over us and it can be a very emotional time. There can be times of great sadness and anger towards others that have done wrong by you and this can often lead to a harsh judgement of them. With that in mind, I would like to start with a verse from Romans 2:1 which says “So you have no reason, whoever you are, for judging: for in judging another you are judging yourself, for
  7. Hi, I hope this is the correct place to post this. I have been noticing on the forum that under the persons name there is a green box with a number in it. Mine is currently at 1 but I have seen others a lot higher. What exactly is this and what does it mean?
  8. I read that those that are saved can become possessed although it often would never happen. What I read was that we can become possessed if we leave ourselves open or stray from the word of God i.e. return to our old ways of sin. It is clear that once baptised, our free will remains, that is not touched and it is up to us to stay on the correct path. In discussion with people from my local Church we explored the idea of sin and where it came from. It is clear that Sin has always been there and portrayed itself first through lucifer, but when we are originally born we too are born with sin. T
  9. Today I wish to talk about a real world issue that the media seems to cover on a daily basis because it now exists on a massive scale. We are all familiar with the war going on between America and Afghanistan that started with a deadly act over ten years ago. The sad thing is that people are using the word of God to justify their actions, yet this is not at all what God asked them to do. I would first like to Pray in for the teacher and children in France who were recently killed through an act of terrorism, May God help guide their families through these difficult times and bring eternal re
  10. Thank you both. The odd thing is that after I posted this last night I went to sleep and the Lord came to me. It was a very active dream and he told me exactly what you both have said. I was told that it was wrong to strike the demon or command it to come out instead I should pray to him and ask God to cast out the demon. At the moment I am amazed about my faith because as I said before I was an atheist for most of my life but now it is crystal clear that the Lord exists. I can feel the Holy Spirit every day working through me and when I pray the Lord answers, when I have a question, the Lor
  11. Hi, I first want to say this is just out of curiosity. I would like to know what the Baptist Church says about exorcisms, I have only ever seen them associated with the Catholic Church but of course we all know that Demons can attack anyone. I have Googled it but nothing comes up. I understand that its often very rare to see demonic possession but what happens when cases do come. God Bless you.
  12. Does Jesus not say to Nicodemus that unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God? John 3:5 My understanding of this would say that baptism through the water will help wash away your sins after you have agreed to repent and then the baptism of the spirit will take away the flesh and enter you into spirit. John 3:6 also says that which is flesh, is flesh and that which is spirit, is spirit. Once we are baptised properly I believe that we no longer walk in the flesh, instead we walk in the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
  13. Hi, sorry if this is a stupid question but I have only been saved a month and still learning. People around me keep going on about concordances, what are they exactly?
  14. Hello, Sorry I am unfamiliar with these forums as I only joined yesterday and dont know where else to post this. I just wanted to share something from the Sunday service of the Sunday just gone. I actually attend two different baptist churches because I travel occasionally between where I currently live and where I grew up (where my parents live). This weekend I was back at my parents so I attended the one back here. This church however does not have a permanent Minister at the moment so the Church has Ministers come in to deliver Sermons. I wanted to share this weeks service because for the
  15. Hello there, My name is Marc, I reside in Bristol which is in South-West England, UK. I now consider myself to be an independent baptist, this Church is where I feel most at home. I found God about a month ago now and entered into his Kingdom straight away. I was baptised in water and of the Holy Spirit on February 29th. I think since that time I have had such an immense experience, my life seems to have become a lot more positive and I feel that God is teaching me so much. I recently learnt the names of the books of the Bible and can now quote quite a few verses. I have to give thanks to
