    I would like to pass along an unusual experience I had about three weeks ago that blessed my heart and I would like to pass along the blessing.
    On Taiwan there are a huge amount of motorcycles. Due to the price of gasoline being very high, parking places very few, and traffic congestion also high, they are smaller in size than in the US (most of the them are from 50cc to 125cc). Also, unlike most countries, they park them on the sidewalks and every place imaginable. Almost always there are people coming and going on the motorcycles, and, as usual, there are people just sitting on the motorcycles either waiting for someone or just idling time away.
    While passing out some tracts near the downtown Telephone and Post Office area, the sidewalks, as usual, were full of motorcycles. There was an older man, about 60 years years old, sitting on a motorcycle. So, as it was convenient, I gave him a tract, very briefly said a quick," Hello, can I give you a gospel tract" and proceeded to walk back away (there were two rows of motorcycles; unevenly spaced), from the area.
    As I was weaving around the motorcycles to leave, the man had read the front page of the tract. The tract, in big print, said, "The Love of God, the Gospel of Jesus Christ," with John 3:16. He looked up, and as I was walking away he called out and said, wait a minute, so, I turned around, and he extended his hand and with a bright smile on his face said, "I would like to shake your hand. I am a Christian and I really appreciate you giving me the gospel tract. We shook hands and I left as his friend.

    You still have failed to really interact or even seem to acknowledge the scriptures that were shared with you, are still continuing to lean upon your own flawed human reasoning.
    And by spreading false beliefs about Satan you are in fact helping Satan. 
    And honestly what makes this so outrageous is your blatant disregard for the scripture you are being shown. If Satan can be allegorized and explained away then you can pretty much explain away heaven and hell and even the Gospel itself. 

    Next thing we know you will be saying that hell is not a real place but is really just a metaphor for suffering we go through in life or something like that

    Friend, this is sad. You are arguing from a position of human opinion. We have pointed out scripture over and over and yet the vast majority of your response is “I think...” 
    my question is, on what authority does your ideas about Satan rest? Gods word is truth and it is the final authority and we are told :
    2 Timothy 3:16 KJV
    [16] All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
     
    if the Bible clearly says Satan is a being, and that Angels chose to sin, on what authority do you say otherwise? I am not trying to be unkind but I am being straight forward with you. 
     
    i find it troubling that you failed to really interact or even seem to acknowledge the scriptures that were shared with you, instead you just continued to lean upon your own flawed human reasoning.

    You are denying the scriptures. But no one here is upset. We are just pointing out the truth in the Bible, in context. 
    "i wish Jesus Christ would touch me and save me from this evil within me"
    Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
    We want you to be saved too.

    As long as your thoughts come from the Bible and are in line with what the Bible says, there should be no problem.
    If the way you worship the Lord is in line with the Bible, there will be no problem.
    But if your thoughts or the way you worship the Lord is NOT in line with the Bible, wouldn't you want to have that pointed out?

    Friend I would admonish you to stop bending the scriptures according to your thoughts and let your thinking change according to the scriptures. You are making many statements that the Bible simply does not.
    for example “Or in the other cases that he relieves people of their demons, the Lord is simply forgiving their sins,” 
    The Bible does NOT say that.

    The Bible does not teach that “angels are not made to go bad, they have no choice, they are robot-like, no will, no A.I. nothing, but following the God's demands and orders.”
     
    on the contrary:
    Jude 1:6 KJV
    [6] And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
     
    God says there are certain angels that rebelled and are in chains being held until the day of judgment..
    2 Peter 2:4 KJV
    [4] For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
     
    Matthew 25:41 KJV
    [41] Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
     
    Revelation 20:10 KJV
    [10] And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

    Totoosart reacted to 1Timothy115 in Satan does not exist!   
    I advise caution until you have time to look more closely at the New Testament, here are a few verses you may want to ponder while you research your questions. God, that is Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son, was manifest in the flesh (John 1:14) for the main reason of sacrifice for sin (1 John 2:2). God does not tempt us (James 1:13). There were other reasons God appeared in the flesh, you are correct God and Satan are against each other and do not cooperate. One reason Jesus went into the wilderness was to provide us knowledge that our Savior and sin bearer understood our frailties and could have compassion and forgiveness of sin (Hebrews 4:15). 
     
    You are on the right path here (1 John 1:5). Satan is not alone in his attack, he has the glitter of the world and our fallen nature to work with (James 1:12-15) gives insight. But, the greatest insight can be provided by a careful study of Satan's temptations used on Jesus Christ in the wilderness (Matthew 4:1-11). It was both an attack against Jesus physical body and against His mind, Satan is well aware of attack on multiple fronts. Satan uses very similar if not identical temptations on us today. We may be weary from the day's work and hungry, it's easy to become irritable, now a family member or friend wants our time, we need the car to help the family or friend, the car battery is dead, what are we to do? Jesus taught us what to do, with our breath, to utilize God's word--(Matthew 4:4). Hebrews 13:5 "Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee." I only hope someday I will overcome all my temptations and respond the way Jesus did. May God richly bless your effort to become like Him.

    Read Job chapter 1 and 2. 
    Satan is a real being referred to with personal pronouns, he speaks as a being does, he even has a destination.
    Revelation 20:2-3 KJV
    [2] And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, [3] And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
     
    There is zero biblical evidence to say that Satan is not real. 
     
    and its not that Jesus cooperated with the devil, Jesus simply allowed the devil to do things. I dont know why your getting so hung up on this concept. Where does the Bible say that God cannot interact with Satan? It doesnt.. you are ignoring hundreds of other passages of scripture simply because you have this unbiblical idea in your head that because God is good that means he cannot somehow interact with Satan. This is the root of your problem. Rather than explaining away hundreds of passages that clearly refer yo Satan as a real being I would admonish you to realize that there is an error in your  presuppositions about God being good and therefore completely unable to “cooperate” with Satan.

    God teaches a little at a time, but He is faithful and patient. Often He wants you to apply a truth in your life before He gives you the next nugget.

    "Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little" (Isaiah 28:9-10 KJV).

    The fastest way to the knowledge of God comes from one source .  . .

    "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" (II Timothy 2:15 KJV).

    and do not neglect the man of God that God has placed you under his ministry for a specific purpose . . .

    "And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive" (Ephesians 4:11-14 KJV).

    Thanks - but most or all here are very sad for you if you cannot say the same. You are either saved or lost, going to Heaven or to Hell, in Christ or damned for all eternity. Of course, a lost person can repent of their sins and trust the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation thereby changing their condition. Hopefully you have done so or will do so soon - asking endless questions won’t get you to Heaven - trusting in Jesus Christ alone to save you from your sins will.

    Totoosart reacted to wretched in Bible Study Challenge   
    This type of study is never mentioned by men but is the central theme of Scripture (Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds out of the Mouth of God). No matter where you feel you are in your walk with God this study program will change you. Even the most seemingly solidly grounded of believers will benefit from this little idea, it is guaranteed by God. Faith comes by HEARING and hearing by the Word of God. Hearing God's Word without the commentary (tradition) that makes the Word of none effect. Try this, let the Spirit guide you in all truth.
    Although seemingly mundane as far as systems of belief go, no big shots names to elevate, no frills, no flash, no commentary or merchandise to buy, only God's Word in the archaic, hard to understand King James English. Find Scourby narrated KJV New Testament Books on youtube and you are ready to begin.
    God's Word is the ultimate test of your faith. If you are truly seeking God's Truth, He will reveal it to you so listen as if your life depends upon it (because it probably does). To start, set aside all time you normally devote to sermon/commentary study and divert it all to this.
    ·         Listen to all the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John) first and repeat them five times in a row consecutively. ·         Then the Book of Acts five times in a row ·         Then the remainder of the New Testament Epistles (Romans all the way through Jude). Repeat them five times, ·         By this time you will be far more prepared for the Book of Revelation than you ever thought you could be. You will be assured of the Spirit's presence as you understand more and more by God's Word and God's Spirit (Like He said in John 3:8). God made clear that "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God". You will truly understand what this means as you discover new truths every time you intently listen praying for the Holy Spirit's Guidance. You will find yourself pausing the script and opening your Bible, saying to yourself - I never saw nor ever heard this before in its true context. Soon you will know that peace that HE KNOWS YOU. You will discover whether your house was built on sand (wolves in sheep's clothing doctrine) or on the Solid Rock of Christ's teachings. Soon you will clearly see every teaching of Christ rephrased, reiterated and reinforced throughout all the Epistles and Revelation. Then repeat this whole plan again and again. You will understand finally what it Scripturally means to walk with God.
    Listening to His Word defines clearly every context of the Scriptures. When context is truly captured so will the definitions of every archaic word. You will see how context provides definition in every single case. After repetitive listening and walking with God in His Word, The Spirit will connect dots you never imagined before and you will see His Word from a strategic viewpoint.  The Spirit of Truth will become clear as it debunks the previous spirit of error. You may very well discover that God's Opinion differs greatly from the opinions you previously had regardless of sect or system.
    If sincere, the likely affect will be that you will find yourself being freed from the system of belief or camp you were brainwashed into. AND YES, I do mean brainwashed. In most cases, this will save your eternal life. You will see that most if not all doctrine you stood so vehemently for is not found in contextual New Testament Scripture.
    All I am pleading with you to do is to listen only to God's Word. Without gimmicks or opinion. There is a strong chance most who read this have never received enough of His Word, unadulterated. Even the most self-proclaimed Mature Christians typically equate Bible Study with sermon/commentary study, reverting to Scripture merely as reference instead of the Bread of Life. This is your chance to see just how far you have been led astray from God's Truth. Devote hours daily, including your commutes to this and this only. Saturate yourself in His Word and you will find the peace of God from God, not from men's plucked out, false assurances. Take this challenge, what do you have to lose?
    No matter how smart you are, how formally educated, how theological you think you are, DO THIS and decide for yourself if this is or is not the KEY to everything.....

    Just try to remember that this "model prayer" was given as an example, it was not meant to be repeated by rote. Jesus gave us this so that we would understand the things our own personal prayer should contain. Our prayers should be personal and unique to our life and situations and walk with our God, not just something to be repeated over and over again.

    Hi, greetings all 🙂
    i've got a humble suggestion for all churches:
    i propose the kind pastors teach everyone to recite the Bible beautifully, especially the pastors themselves need to be able to recite the verses correctly and clearly.
    It is heartbreaking to watch some pastors on YouTube just run through the verses without giving nor showing any sense and feeling from what they read. If you are short of time, do not save it by running through the text, if you are so short of time, why are you doing this in the first place? If you need to read the text, pay the text its respect, and read calmly and beautifully, let it sink in the listeners and your audience. Otherwise, what is the point????
    How can one expect to move the multitudes when the reciter is sans feeling?
    i strongly recommend everyone to at least listen to Mr Alexander Scournby's recordings, he is not perfect, but he is the best there is, hope someone will better him soon.
    There are dramatised recordings, i do not recommend them, for one, they are not the KJV, and when something is dramatised, it's the view point of the director, not the book.
    Have a better day and bless your hearts,
