    AVBibleBeliever got a reaction from MountainChristian in My Safety   
    As I await for word on the CS tech jOB I have taken on a roof coating jOB at a Friend of mines house.  Seven Gables it was built by Thomas Jefferson's son in law.  It is an old amish built home no nails only joints and wooden pins.  Originally it has a wood shingled roof, sometime in the early or mid 1900's a steel roof was put on.  
     
    since that day the roof has always leaked.  I knew one of the owners when I went to Bible college and had helped on some of its interior restoration.  But the roof leaks no matter how hard they tried never stop for more than three years at a time.
     
    that is because the way it was built the house breathes, expanding and contracting daily.  but once they put the fixed metal roof any tar or hard coating put on it would crack and break off and the leaks would start again.
     
    So I am helping the current owner put on a rubberized coating with a mesh membrane, afterward we wil color coat it to meet the regulations of the Historical dist.  However no one want to work and I am having hard time finding laborers to help me.  I assembled three tears at three high of scaffolding by myself yesterday, and today I will begin to get out one the roof.  I have never done a roof coating like this on a steep pitch.  We are hoping this will solve the prOBlem.
     
    Please for the next couple of weeks pray for my safety and wisdom.

    There is a lesson to be learned in why God took from the side, a rib, of adam to make woman rather than from his head or feet.
     
    And God and Christ said the twain shall be one.  Not one over the other.

    But there is a difference between the physical seed of Abraham and Israel, and the spiritual seed.  The big thing people think is just because they are a spiritual seed they get all the promises to the Physical seed and that is not correct.
     
    Prophet are you watching the video to critique or learn about how dispensations work?

    AVBibleBeliever got a reaction from beameup in When Did The Church That Jesus Built Begin?   
    Church of the wilderness Acts 7 / the Church of the first born Hebrews 12, was started in the when Israel was called out of Egypt and reestablished by Christ in the Gospels and then postponed by Acts 8 until a later time to be completed after the gathering of the body of Christ 1Thess 4. The church of Acts 2 was part of the Church of the wilderness and the first born.
     
    The body of Christ, the current church, Started when Paul received his commission Act 9, described in Gal 1 from Jesus to take the gospel of the Grace of God to the Gentiles.
  7. Thanks
    AVBibleBeliever reacted to beameup in When Did The Church That Jesus Built Begin?   
    Acts 9
    The Jews had blasphemed the Father and the Son, and in Acts 7 they blasphemed the Holy Spirit and stoned Stephen.
    Then Jesus appeared to Paul (Saul of Tarsus) and commissioned him to go to the Gentiles and preach the Gospel of Grace
    (without the Law) to the Body of Christ (ie: the "church", Gentiles and a remnant of Jews).
     
    "Acts 2" is Israel, and adoption of this fulfillment of Joel's prophecy by "the church", leads directly to charis-mania ("speaking in tongues").
     
    I see many mixing the message under the Law with Paul's Gospel of Grace (revealed to Paul by Jesus, btw)... tsk, tsk, tsk
    See 2 Tim 2:15

    AVBibleBeliever reacted to candlelight in Eternal Security Taught In Hebrews 6   
    There are many other scriptures in God's word, besides Hebrew 6, which talk about Eternal Security of the believer - often referred to as "Once saved, always saved."  
     
    "Verily, verily (surely, surely), I say unto you.  He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life,and shall not come into condemenation;  but is passed from death unto life." ~ John 5:24 

    "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:  28  And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand." ~ John 10:27-28

    "Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect?  It is God that justifieth.  34 Who is he that condemneth?  It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.  35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?  shall tribulation, or distress or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril or sword (war)?  36 As it is written, FOR THY SAKE WE ARE ALL KILLED ALL THE DAY LONG; WE ARE ACCOUNTED AS SHEEP FOR THE SLAUGHTER.  37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors, through him that loved us.  38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come.  39 Nor height nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." ~ Romans 8:33-39

    "And if by grace, then is it no more works:  otherwise grace is no more grace.  But if it be of works, then it is no more grace:  otherwise work is no more work." ~ Romans 11:6
     
    "In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation:  in whom also after that ye believed,
    ye were sealed (confirmed) with that holy Spirit of promise,  14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory." ~ Ephesians 1:13-14

    "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:  it is the gift of God:  9 Not of works, lest any man should boast." ~ Ephesians 2:8-9

    "And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption." ~ Ephesians 4:30

    "Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time." ~ I Peter 1:5

    "And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith that he that is holy, he that is true, HE THAT HATH THE KEY OF DAVID, HE THAT OPENETH, AND NO MAN SHUTTETH; AND SHUTTETH AND NO MAN OPENETH;" ~ Revelation 3:7

    If a person is truly saved, they are not going to loose their salvation.  They may have doubts of their salvation, and this is called, "Assurance of Salvation."  However, with what swath and others have shown you on this subject, Donillo, your salvation is secure with the Lord Jesus Christ.  If you knew, at a moment in your life, that you were saved by Jesus Christ, then you are His child.  Do you know, without a shadow of a doubt, that there was a time in your life, when you completely trusted Jesus Christ as your Personal Saviour?  I am not talking about head knowledge.  I am talking about your heart.  Have you received Him as Lord and Savior over your life?  If you can answer, "yes" then nothing is going to take God's salvation away from you.  You are His child forever.  As mentioned, you can loose rewards or blessings, in life and in heaven, but a child of God CANNOT loose their salvation.  DO NOT play the game of salvation + works (good deeds).  It is a deadly doctrine.  The Bible is proof that one cannot loose their salvation if they are truly a child of the living God.  God's word says what it says, and means what it says.  There is only one interpretation for God's word and that is Jesus Christ, himself.  However, there are many applications to His word.

    the correct doctrinal verses for the church come from Romans, Corinthians, Philippians.  You could use parts of Matthew or James as support verses but not for establishment of a doctrine for the church of God.
     
    First lesson of right division is asking who it is speaking to historical and doctrinally?  Israel

    AVBibleBeliever got a reaction from Miss Daisy in Anyone Remember When   
    better yet one that says we are to be conformed to the word.
     
    Roms 8:29 ¶ For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate [to be] conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

    Roms 12:1, 3 ¶ I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.   And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
     
    Not being conformed to this world is a living sacrifice that we make.  When we choose to look like those in the world we are not willing to be a living sacrifice which is acceptable unto God.  They need to be taught this as a first principle doctrine of separation.
  11. Thanks
    AVBibleBeliever reacted to prophet1 in Wow, God Is Really Serious About This   
    This is a doctrine.

    We don't want doctrine.

    We want to rip verses out of context (wrongly divide), spiritualize non-applicable instructions, recast the stumbling block that Israel fell over.

    This all sounds familiar.

    Wait, I know where I've heard it before, RCC Replacement Theology.
    The Church replaced Israel.
    Sure.
    Thanks to the Fundamentalist Movement, all kinds of RCC false doctrine has infiltrated the Baptists.
    We read books about "great Christians"...Protestant Catholics .
    We lift up "heroes of the faith", who believed in Lordship Repentance, Loss of Salvation, Works regeneration, and most of all...replacement theology.

    So put those silly Gentiles back in the yoke, that Israel could never bear.

    Throw away your cotton blend shirts, damn you if you've eaten shrimp, stone your kids to death, for sassing Mom, and wave your food at God before you eat, when your brethren pay tithes to you.

    Or, realize that your Law is "love the LORD thy God with all thy heart, and thy neighbor as thyself", and that is it.

    Avoid a few things, conduct assembly by the instructions given, and pray for all of the Saints.

    Bro that has to do with Israel.  Because of how Egypt afflicted them in that matter while they sojourned there.
     
    However, I would still be careful with how we treat others for the teachings to the church by Paul surely teach us to take care of these.

    Well, I don't live in India, and I don't like nose rings.    That said, if the waitress has one and gives me good service she'll get a nice tip.  Even if she doesn't give good service, she would get a decent tip because we then leave a tract - and we aren't going to stiff a tip and leave a tract at the same time.  Bad witness, that!
     
    My biggest pet peeve?  The fact that I don't have one. I want a dog so badly.  A beagle pup.  That I can name Liberty.  Yes, then I wouldn't have a peeve anymore, I would have a pet.

    AVBibleBeliever got a reaction from wretched in Repentance And How To Properly Share The Gospel   
    Self sanctification will not make anyone clean.  At Salvation it is imputed to you through Faith on Jesus Christ, Sanctification, Justification, Righteousness, Holiness and Godliness.  You need only walk in His Spirit or the Holy Ghost to live accordingly.  Gentiles walking in the Spirit will by the Imputed divine nature stay pure, clean and in service to Christ and produce fruit that is not theirs by any amount of works.
  17. Thanks
    AVBibleBeliever got a reaction from wretched in Repentance And How To Properly Share The Gospel   
    In every instance of using the 10 commandments to lead someone to Christ you will create a legalist because the natural progression is if I didn't keep them and am guilty of that then I must keep them after I get saved.
     
    This is why Ray Comfort and his Lordship Salvation movement came about from his "Way of the Master Series"
     
    Many of the new Yeshua and YAH cults were invented because of the Way to the Master Series.  I know many men who have fallen from grace in this manner.  Beware of using the 10 comandement to convict Gentiles they are not right with God.
     
    Paul's word makes it clear that we were without God or the covenants because we were Gentiles (not the people of God).  We come to God through Christ who died for our sins period not that we broke the Law that was given for all Israel on Mr Horeb.

    It takes "detective work" with the help of the Holy Spirit to uncover a lot of truth that is in the Scriptures.
    How many times have I seen folks just "gloss over" a truth as if it wasn't even there.
    Being creatures of habit, many often just "parrot" what they have heard others say.
     
    The Bereans were more nOBle than the Thessalonians because they diligently searched the Scriptures.

    Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. JOB 38:4
    When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? JOB 38:7
     
    God is not one who "has a lot of time" to accomplish his plans.  God dwells in eternity.  God created the space-time continuum.
     
    In Rev., John is describing things from HIS perspective, using the best language he can to describe events.
     
    Unless the desire is simply to be contentious (Pro 26:21, Rom 2:8),
    these concepts are easy to understand by the simplest of minds.

    AVBibleBeliever got a reaction from prophet1 in How Old Is The Earth   
    In Addition to Prophets, remarks above,  the word "about" is key in understanding that the one seeing the revelation, a man, is the attributing or guessing a time to how long he experienced the silence.  This does not mean heaven us under any type of time quantum (measurements).  Time only works here on this planet.  Even the scientist and sci-fi writers know that.

    AVBibleBeliever got a reaction from 1Timothy115 in A Great Job Offered To Me   
    I have had two JOB interviews over the last several weeks.
     
    But one of them is not only one I want but had basically been praying for.
     
    It is for a Large medical company in their central service at the cities largest Hospital.
     
    Good wage, room for advancement.
     
    It was decided finally that we would stay and give up our rights to our mission work overseas for the time being while our son James gets treatment and help for what now seem to be some form of Intellectual disability.
     
    it could be the result of the chemicals we used, or from a bump on the head or another type of birth defect.  At this point we don't really know.
     
    it will take a couple of years to get him up and going and to find out what is wrong with James.
     
    Please pray for this jOB as a CS Tech I for me.

    Some of you knew I have had back prOBlems and after the last slip four weeks ago I had thought I was never going to be better.
     
    For three weeks straight I was in very severe pain.  My sciatic nerve was being pinched and I could not sleep, sit or walk for three weeks.  I was miserable in every way.
     
    Anyway, my doctor would not see me again because he had referred me to UVA for arthritis on my Lumbar.  Out of frustration I went to the emergency room one week ago.  The doc comes in she looked at my xrays, pushed all over and then came to the conclusion that I had a very bad pulled muscle up in my hip behind my groin that was pushing on the nerve.
     
    She gave me the correct medications and in 24 hours I was about ready to dance.  A week later and you couldn't tell I ever had any pain.
     
    I prayed about it to go or not and it was well worth going.  This is the kind of care we are going to get under OBama care, doctors who can't diagnose a sprained muscle.
     
    to God be the glory

    That is not the "division" I was referring to.
    Catholics, Christian cults, Amillennialists, Calvinists, etc. are content with that "division".
  25. Thanks
    AVBibleBeliever reacted to wretched in Rightly Dividing?   
    The first part of your statement is exactly right John. PrOBably not the way you think I am sensing though. The divisions in God's Word have much to do with historical division as the the Bible is the true history of the earth and man as God wants us to know at this time.
     
    The second part of your statement is true in many cases too but also very true in all cases of Bible blending and incorrect interpretation of the way God has changed His dealings with man over time. I think one of the key verses that those ignorant of true interpretation use is Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever. Certainly He is but not His dealings with man and that verse has nothing to do with it in context.
