    1Timothy115 reacted to SureWord in Squandered?   
    Not quite sure what Revelation 3:7,8 has to do with Americans failing to go through that door (i.e. taking the gospel to the world). If you mean Christians in America then it's because, after being flooded with at least 300 different corrupt versions of the bible since 1901, many Christians in America no longer keep God's word. So the door is being closed.
    Get ready for to hold services in secret.

    7 …These things saith 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; 8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.                          [Revelation 3:7-8]
    --I believe we, as Americans, did fail to go through the door opened by God. I also believe we wasted God’s opportunity. Our forthcoming administration for national government is the result. Adversity is on the way to the church of Jesus Christ. What will we do now?
    --Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

    In the middle of our service today Facebook decided to ban the stream citing a failure to follow FB standards. No explanation given. There was nothing political, nothing about Trump or voter fraud, nothing about Covid, just cut the stream to those stuck at home mostly elderly and infirmed.
    Get ready to see more of this.

    You spent years "researching and gathering information" and yet you can't see the corruptions within the new versions of the bible. As Corn Pop Biden would say, "Come on, man!"
    My brother predicted a while back that the Democrats wanted to corrupt the election enough to have it forced into the Supreme Court. Ultimately, they want the Judiciary to determine elections. The Democrats have become the authoritarians.

    All President Trump, and a nation of concerned American citizens, who like many other people, can think rationally, and also have experience in gathering information, is to have the legal process started, and finished by the Supreme Court, to determine, and document, the fraud that many have claimed has taken place. The public press is not the place to gather information but a legal court case is.
    It seems to me that the Democratic party, and a lot of like-minded individuals, do not want transparency in the ballot counting process, the double-checking of ballots, and the proceedings of a court room. It also seems to me that due to the extreme hatred towards president Trump, and his policies, that many individuals castigate him in the public arena and will not let him have his day in Court.

    Seeing the electoral process being corrupted by fraud, of all types, is a sad thing to witness. It is no wonder that the majority of Americans are frustrated. Biden, and the rest of the Democratic party, ought to be ashamed. But, it is apparent that the fraud was premeditated by those with no conscience. 
    It is my prayer that the Supreme Court of the United States steps in to stop the fraudulent electoral process in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Michigan, Nevada, Georgia and do re-counts in Wisconsin.
    If the Supreme court does not do so, than I fear that the United States is not a country run by law.

    I'm not sure about the other states but the "mail in voting" system here in MI has only been put in place this year and was justified as a safety measure for COVID. I doubt it ever was vetted by anyone outside of the current administration because non-essential activity (such as close government scrutiny) has been denied due to social distancing policies put in place.

    I wouldn't expect the "judicial process" to stop anything. They are part of the reason for all the corruption. An example would be that Bush appointed federal judge in Texas refusing to stop the drive thru ballots because the GOP couldn't prove "evil intent" which is ridiculous. Also, forget the DOJ or FBI.  Barr and the DOJ never indicted anyone involved in the coup against the President and the FBI is as crooked as the Mexican Federales.
    All we can be sure of is that they are all corrupt, Trump flushed them out, there's no more "conspiracy theory" about it. We now have a Uni-Party and at least 100 million demoralized Americans. Even those who voted for Trump, though they got their way, can't say they believe in our system anymore. I hear all the time people saying that they feel America is no longer their country. A coworker told me that just today. When you take away the only power, the only say that people have in the direction of the USA, i.e. an uncorrupted election, we've entered into some dangerous ground. The government can no longer fool people into believing their empty promises if elected again so they will stay in power by ostracization, force and subjugation from now on.
    I personally believe that there will be a grave consequence for what has happened that may not come to fruition until some time down the road. If you take away the voice of the people through rigged elections or censoring of free speech people will resort to violence.

    It seems to me that President Trump was on the way to win the presidential election by a wide margin. When the Democratic controlled  electoral process saw an obvious Trump win the States left ( Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Wisconsin, and Michigan), with a Democratic controlled electoral process stopped the election process, denied legal observers to observe the process, allowed ballots to come in after November 4th., and let a multitude of fraudulent ballots be counted for Biden.
    Already as we speak, YouTube, the major news media, Twitter, etc.. is trying desperately to stop any rational discussion and legal remedy.
    Here is a video for your consideration and information.
     
     
     
    Unless the Juridical process stops this illegal method of the electoral process the United States will be considered a 'banana Republic,' that is run by the Socialists, Communists, anarchists, and anyone else with a personal vendetta against the Constitution of United States.

    I'll echo what @DaChaser said. Doctrine is directly from the Bible, anything contrary to that is false. With that being said, God defines it.

    1Timothy115 got a reaction from John Young in When did Grace "Begin"?   
    I'm thankful "grace" is one of God's attributes and that without it I wouldn't even have faith. The fact that I can administer grace to others is evidence enough for me it emanates from God. Knowing the low estate of myself, I would not give grace except for the grace of God. When did saving grace appear is a rabbit hole. The O.T. saints looked forward to the day of salvation by grace through faith whereas we've been given the grace to see grace giving faith in our rearview mirror. Thank you Lord Jesus!
  20. Thanks
    1Timothy115 reacted to Pastor Scott Markle in When did Grace "Begin"?   
    I myself would contend that using the title, "Age of Grace," for the present dispensation of time is a misrepresentation.  I would contend that this present dispensation of time should rather be called the age/dispensation of the New Testament church.
    I myself would contend that our Lord God's characteristic of "grace" (graciousness) has been a part of His eternal, unchanging character since eternity past.
    I myself would contend that our Lord God first administered grace unto mankind when He delivered the first promise of a coming Savior in Genesis 3:15.
    I myself would contend that our Lord God's "plan of grace" began at least from the foundation of the world, for in Revelation 13:8 our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is called "the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world."
    I myself would contend that our Lord God's justifying/saving grace began at least as early as Abraham (and I would actually contend that it began even before that).  According to Romans 3:24 and Titus 3:7, justification is only by God's grace.  Then in Romans 4:3-5 we find that this justifying/saving grace of God was specifically administered unto Abraham through Abraham's faith -- "For what saith the scriptures?  Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.  Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.  But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness."
    (Note: As for myself, I will consider any teaching contrary to this to be false teaching and false gospel.)

    In order to understand Galatians 3:22-29 correctly, we must understand the full context of which it is a part.  That full context begins with Galatians 3:1-5 -- "O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?  This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?  Are ye so foolish?  Having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?  Have ye suffered so many things in vain?  If it be yet in vain.  He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?"
    In this passage three driving questions are presented which provide the driving purpose for the apostle's arguments and explanations throughout the remainder of Galatians 3-6.  These three driving questions are:
    1.  "This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?"
    2.  "Having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?"
    3.  "He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?"
    In summary, the subject of these three questions is as follows:
    1.  Do believers RECEIVE the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing faith?
    2.  Is spiritual growth accomplished by the Spirit (through faith), or by the flesh (through the works of the law)?
    3.  Is Biblical ministry accomplished by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
    Now, the first of these three questions is that which drives the apostle's arguments and explanations throughout Galatians 3-4 (including Galatians 3:22-29, the passage in question above).  Then building upon the conclusions for the first question, the second and third of these questions is that which drives the apostle's arguments and explanations throughout Galatians 5-6.
    With this understanding in mind, we may note that the theme throughout Galatians 3-4 is not primarily about whether believers are justified (saved) through faith or through the works of the law, but is primarily about whether believers receive the gift/promise of the indwelling Holy Spirit through faith or through the works of the law.  Recognizing this, we already begin to see wherein there was a difference between the Old Testament believer and the New Testament believer; for Old Testament believers did not experience the blessing of the Holy Spirit's permanent indwelling, whereas we New Testament believers do experience this blessing.

    Scripture for this statement would be very helpful.
    You are overthinking what Grace is. It is simply the unmerited Favor of God.

    1Timothy115 reacted to SureWord in Holiness Movement   
    They believe that you can live a perfectly sinless the rest of your life but if you backslide you will go to hell. Of course, they pile on unscriptural rules and regulations as evidence of their holiness. Don't dare watch a movie or wear panty hose or you'll go to hell (interestingly, the internet seems to be OK though). My pastor friend told me all about them. He was a member of a Holiness church and even went to one of their colleges in Florida (Hobe Sound Bible College) . In his church they didn't even preach from a bible but rather some manual of church standards.
    As far as their reverence of John Wesley and Charles Finney writings he said most of them never even read their material and they took it way, way behind what Wesley and Finney taught. It was all puffed up self righteousness and emotionalism like you'd find in Charismatic churches.
    It's not a thing about "striving to live holy" or "forsaking all sin" but an divine act of God changing your flesh to where you never sin again. He had one member of his church tell him he hadn't sinned in years.
