  1. What you say is true when a sinner is born again as saved, for that is when we are clean, but... Jesus said this about being His disciples. John 15:1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. 3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. 4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 5 I am the vine, ye are the branches:
  2. The point of no return of being received as a vessel unto honor is when the Bridegroom has come & gone and then those unrepentant but saved believers would have been left behind, but to be received later on as vessels unto dishonor after the great tribulation. The souls of unrepentant saints that have passed on in this life before the pre trib rapture, are with the Lord, but still waiting under the altar for their inheritance as a vessel unto dishonor in His House just as the souls of repentant saints are awaiting still for their first inheritance as vessels unto honor in joining the
  3. From the article " It is no wonder, then, that Paul exhorted us to “work out” the priceless salvation that has been given to us with “fear and trembling.” God is “working” in us, and He expects us to “will and to do his good pleasure” (Philippians 2:13). HMM III " Actually, the message is to expect Him to help us to will and to do his good pleasure BECAUSE He is the One working in us. If we include verse 13 with verse 12, we can see the message by His grace & by His help. Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now mu
  4. The religious rudiment that Billy Graham uses may very well be in an IFB church; the commitment to follow Christ. A commitment is like a promise; and thus a yoke of bondage. The irony is that after preaching the gospel, Billy Graham gave the opposite of the gospel message at the altar call by saying, "If you are not sure you are saved, come forward & make a commitment to follow Christ." Granted, just by hearing the gospel & believing in Him is how any one is saved, but the altar call denies that salvation has been given by faith in Jesus Christ without works & also pro
  5. In a christian church, a rebuke would be appropriate, but if unrepentant, then an excommunication whereas as in a place of an employment, a week's suspension without pay with an option to end that suspension pending an apology may be given to the employee as a chance to repent, otherwise, the employee would just look for another job while on suspension, but eventually he or she would be considered terminated after that week's suspension due to the lack of the apology. Upon returning after having given what is believed to be a heartfelt apology, if the employee does that particular offense
  6. I want to join the King James Bible forum & the Men's Forum but I see no "Apply" link at the top of the page. Where is it? I have used the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the web page, in giving my request to join those two groups, and still no response.
  7. Here in the forum is about as much personal one on one situation one can get. Plus it gives the other time to research, look up Bible references, for reproof or for proof for edifying one another. For the longest time & I am the only one having that kind of a problem. The telltale is when the manager said repeatedly that the headphones do not operate on batteries & that by sitting in the middle of the theatre with the front of the head phone pointing towards the screen was how I was to receive the best reception but as I do this, suddenly, I get static. Then the manager chan
  8. The plain text is that verses 19-21 is a call to depart from iniquity and the reference to those two kinds of vessels in His House testify how those purging themselves of the iniquity is how any believer can be received as a vessel unto honor in His House. So that means the vessels unto dishonor are those that have not departed from iniquity, even though they are still in His House. The reason God is judging His House first at the pre trib rapture is obvious to me by the practice He has set forth for the church in 1 Corinthians 5th chapter about excommunicating those in unrepentant iniqu
  9. Although the OP has been answered, I don't think any one can really speak for any IFB church. Questioning what makes up an IFB by showing if an IFB church is really Biblical in being fundamental. The notion of answering to no outside authority does make one wonder if they mean "except Christ of course". As it is by precedent, an IFB can be Pentecostal/Charismatic in practice & no other IFB can do anything about it. Indeed, can an IFB that claim to be Biblical fundamentalist hold to that claim when worshipping the Holy Spirit with the Father & the Son? By His words, I wo
  10. Look at the sin that the Holy Spirit will reprove the world of as sinners. John 16:8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 Of sin, because they believe not on me; 10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; 11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. So the only heartfelt conviction is to believe on Jesus Christ, even in His name = easy believism. Discipleship comes afterward. 2 Peter 2:18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts
  11. I agree. Do you know why some members think I should just go find an IFB church if they cannot really vouch for it? Seems like they want me to think I need a more personal encounter for my edification in an IFB church rather than get it here in the forum. Not sure why they would promote that if they cannot vouch for that benefit either from any local IFB church, if there is such a one. As it is, I am under oppression & a special kind of persecution that is unbelievable as I am unable to go to church or anywhere because of my enemies sowing discord & tempting people to d
  12. Because there was no rainbow until after the flood had abated since the rainbow served as a reminder of a promise that God would not destroy the earth again with a world wide flood. I believe that the impact craters on the moon and all the ones known on the earth, happened at the time of the flood as that would cause the moon to start moving away from the earth & the fountains of the deep to rise up. Do not the moon govern the tides? So as there was a mist watering the whole earth, the meteorite impacts on the moon, the gravitional pull as a result of the moon moving away from t
  13. Parent to child doing poorly in Math because he doesn't want to; "God has commanded you to do math!" "What?!" the child asked in bewilderment, "Where is that written in the Bible?!" Parent reminded the child "God said to go forth & multiply !" Child's response ->
  14. Well, I reckon I was counting on the IFB answering to the Head of the church which is Christ Jesus & His words as kept in the KJV, but I guess my perception of fundamentalism as a Biblical church may even be different in IFB churches. Thanks for sharing.
