|1||How Great is our God?||Ps 8:9||meusing||169049|
|I love that poem.|
|2||Help!!!||Bible general Archive 3||meusing||163681|
|That is great that you know one Muslim that is born again. To be born again he must acknowledge that Jesus died for his sins and rosea gain for his life. Both those things are denied by Muslims. Muslims believe that Jesus never died on the cross to save us; and they believe that he was never ressurected since they believe he was never crucified.
I was replying to your quote that Peter Tsukahira said that 'the Muslims will be the Gentiles that will bring the Jews to the Lord'. So I just asked which 'LORD' did he mean. The Lord Jesus Christ?
I do not under estimate the power of the Gospel on the heart and mind of Muslims. When they believe that Jesus died and rose again for their sins, they are Christians not Muslims who do not believe in the crucifiction and ressurection.

|You said "the Muslims will the Gentiles that will bring the Jews to the Lord"
I wonder what "lord" the Muslims will bring the Jews to.
The Lord Who said "This is My beloved Son." Mat. 3:17 and other places in the New Testament.
Allah who said "I have no son."
|4||"Adam, Where are you?" explained||Gen 3:9||meusing||155755|
|"Gleanings" has a good explanation of this verse
Genni the wonder dog and I strolled around the lake last night. As we neared the playground, we heard a mother calling to her child "Where are you?"
The child giggled and yelled, "Here I am" then hid. Mom called out again, "Where are you?" and got the same response. They were having a wonderful time. Of course mom could see the child all the time, but the child thought she was well hidden. I was reminded of the first time those words were ever spoken.
Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. But the LORD God called to the man, "Where are you?"
Genesis 3:8-9 NIV
Adam and Eve had sinned and were hiding from God. Being God, He knew exactly where they were hiding. Why would He call them if He already knew where they were? To give them the opportunity to admit their mistake and be reconciled to God.
Adam and Eve heard the call, and answered, but rather than be reconciled they chose to blame others for their sin. A wondrous opportunity was wasted.
God calls to all of us, "Where are you?"
For those who do not know Him, it is a call to be reconciled and come to saving faith. For them it is the sound of the shepherd calling for the lost sheep. It is the sound of the foghorn warning of danger ahead if you do not change your course. It is a shrill alarm screaming, "Turn back!"
For those of us who know Him, it is a reminder that He wants to fellowship with Him. It is the call of a songbird seeking its mate. It is the excited yell of the father when the prodigal came home.
In the words of the familiar song: "Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling. Calling for you and for me." He calls day and night for His lost children to return and for His found children to spend time with Him.
Until next time, will you answer His call
Hallelu Yah (Praise the Lord)
|5||Love God, His word, any difference?||Ps 95:10||meusing||153314|
|The best illustration of this is the story of a young woman who tried to read a book a friend had recommended to her. She found it very boring and put it aside. A few weeks later she went to a party and met the author of the book. He made quite an impression on her. (So much so that a year later she married him). Anyway, she went home and reread the book and was fasinated by it. The difference? She had met the auhor of the book and it was an insight ito his mind.
The Bible is precious to us since we know the Author and we Know more about the Author through His word.
|6||What is the AKJV?||1 John 5:7||meusing||152955|
|Hi Jesus came BECAUSE God is a God of love. Jesus came and took the punishment that our sins deserved. Those who do not believe in Jesus, will be coming into God's presence (sp?) without the shed blood of Jesus. That is like someone trying to board a train or plane without buying a ticket. He just assumes that because he led a good life that the pilot or conducter likes him he is entitled to a free ride.
It is always good to aline our mind with what the Bible says. When Jesus proclaimed God's love in John 3:16, He went on to say,
John 3:17 "For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
John 3:18 "He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

|I really would not have said anything if I had not thought that he was trying to refute the statement that "merely reading, or even studying the Bible, will not necessarily result in Christian faith."
If he was agreeing with that statement then I was wrong to support it. I did not mean to attack him, just show that the statement was true. that is the only reason I said anything.

|I did not mean to open a can of worms, this is the post I was replying to. I do not know what number it is.
Kalos was replying and he said
Note: You write: "merely reading, or even studying the Bible, will not necessarily result in Christian faith."
But God says:
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17 (KJV)
by the word 'but' I thought he was refuting the previous statement with the verse.
I just tried to show that some read and study the Bible and are not converted.

|Well, some people like the American Episcapalian Bishop Spong who reads the the Bible to disproove it. His latest book is called "The Sins of the Bible"
Reading, and studying the Bible has not led him to faith, but confirmed his unbelief.
|12||Spurgeon on "hate evil"||Ps 97:10||meusing||152056|
|Here is Spurgeon on "hate evil":
“Ye that love the Lord hate evil.”
Thou hast good reason to “hate evil,” for only consider what harm it has already wrought thee. Oh, what a world of mischief sin has brought into thy heart! Sin blinded thee so that thou couldst not see the beauty of the Saviour; it made thee deaf so that thou couldst not hear the Redeemer’s tender invitations. Sin turned thy feet into the way of death, and poured poison into the very fountain of thy being; it tainted thy heart, and made it “deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked.” Oh, what a creature thou wast when evil had done its utmost with thee, before divine grace interposed! Thou wast an heir of wrath even as others; thou didst “run with the multitude to do evil.” Such were all of us; but Paul reminds us, “but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” We have good reason, indeed, for hating evil when we look back and trace its deadly workings. Such mischief did evil do us, that our souls would have been lost had not omnipotent love interfered to redeem us. Even now it is an active enemy, ever watching to do us hurt, and to drag us to perdition. Therefore “hate evil,” O Christians, unless you desire trouble. If you would strew your path with thorns, and plant nettles in your death-pillow, then neglect to “hate evil:” but if you would live a happy life, and die a peaceful death, then walk in all the ways of holiness, hating evil, even unto the end. If you truly love your Saviour, and would honour him, then “hate evil.” We know of no cure for the love of evil in a Christian like abundant intercourse with the Lord Jesus. Dwell much with him, and it is impossible for you to be at peace with sin.
“Order my footsteps by thy Word,
And make my heart sincere;
Let sin have no dominion, Lord,
But keep my conscience clear.”
|13||Jews' word for Hell comesfrom whatvalley||Bible general Archive 2||meusing||151739|
|From Easton's Bible dictionary:
A deep, narrow ravine separating Mount Zion from the so-called “Hill of Evil Counsel.” It took its name from “some ancient hero, the son of Hinnom.” It is first mentioned in Jos_15:8. It had been the place where the idolatrous Jews burned their children alive to Moloch and Baal. A particular part of the valley was called Tophet, or the “fire-stove,” where the children were burned. After the Exile, in order to show their abhorrence of the locality, the Jews made this valley the receptacle of the offal of the city, for the destruction of which a fire was, as is supposed, kept constantly burning there.
The Jews associated with this valley these two ideas,
(1.) that of the sufferings of the victims that had there been sacrificed; and
(2.) that of filth and corruption. It became thus to the popular mind a symbol of the abode of the wicked hereafter. It came to signify hell as the place of the wicked. “It might be shown by infinite examples that the Jews expressed hell, or the place of the damned, by this word. The word Gehenna [the Greek contraction of Hinnom] was never used in the time of Christ in any other sense than to denote the place of future punishment.” About this fact there can be no question. In this sense the word is used eleven times in our Lord's discourses (Mat_23:33; Luk_12:5; Mat_5:22, etc.).
|14||The Father, The Son, The Holy Ghost.||Bible general Archive 1||meusing||76848|
|Your first paragraph is false, the Trinity has never meant three Gods. the Trinity is one God, three personalities.
"3. And the universal [true Christian] faith is this: that we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity;
4. Neither confounding the Persons; nor dividing the Substance.
5. For there is one Person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy Ghost.
6. But the Godhead of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, is all one: the Glory Equal, the Majesty Coeternal.
7. Such as the Father is, such is the Son: and such is the Holy Ghost.
8. The Father uncreate, the Son uncreate: the Holy Ghost uncreate.
9. The Father is incomprehensible, the Son incomprehensible and the Holy Ghost incomprehensible.
10. The Father is eternal, the Son eternal: and the Holy Ghost eternal.
11. And yet they are not three Eternals: but one Eternal."
Please do not put words in my mouth, I was responing to YOUR tatement that 1.Jesus is God, 2. God is bigger that Jesus. if 1 is true that Jesus is not bigger that God, because He Is God.
I did not say anything about the Father. John 14:28 is explained in Phil 2:6 that Jesus, being God emptied Himself and to take on the form of a man.
you say God has no 'form' when it is shown that 'form' means the essential attributes of His nature do you mean that God has no essential attributes?
I am not Confusing Jesus with the Fathere as I am speaking of Jesus.
The Fathere is God and Jesus is God and the Holy Spirit is God.
Is am saying what Jesus said. He spoke of the Father as God and spoke to Him as a separate person and God the Father replied to Him. Jesus spoke of the Holy Spirit as a separate person.
To be tempted and not sin is the whole reason that Jesus, being God, became man, and subjected himself to temptation and the cross. on Earth He was Immanuel God with us, showing us how to submit ourselves to God the Father, with the power of God the Spirit
Philippians 2:6-11 DRB Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: (7) But emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men, and in habit found as a man. (8) He humbled himself, becoming obedient unto death, even to the death of the cross. (9) For which cause, God also hath exalted him and hath given him a name which is above all names: (10) That in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those that are in heaven, on earth, and under the earth: (11) And that every tongue should confess that the Lord Jesus Christ is in the glory of God the Father.

|Last thing first. the word "Trinity" just says what is plainly taught in the Scriptures, that the Father is God, that Jesus is God and that the Holy Spirit is God, and that these three are one.
It is interesting that you first agree with me and ssay that Jesus is God, and then in the very next sentence you say that "God is so much bigger than Jesus". If Jesus is God then he is not bigger than Himself.
Please take a look at what Phil 2:6 reals says 'that BEING (existing in present tense) in the form (MORPH means having the essential attributes as shown in the form)" shows tht Jesus is God. not that He is "NOT God" as you said wich contridicted your earlier statement. He was God before He became human and He still is God. You are confusing Him with the Father. He came to proclaim the Father as God, just as the Holy Spirit proclaims Him as God.
So it is "According to the foreknowledge of God the Father, unto the sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ. Grace unto you and peace be multiplied. "
(1 Peter 1:2 DRB)
But every one in his own order: the firstfruits, Christ: then they that are of Christ, who have believed in his coming. Afterwards the end: when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God and the Father: when he shall have brought to nought all principality and power and virtue.
(1 Corinthians 15:23-24 DRB)
|16||The Father, The Son, The Holy Ghost.||Bible general Archive 1||meusing||76808|
|Jesus, god with us, spoke of His Father as God, and spokeof the Holy Spirit as a separate person from Himself.
the statement "Jesus was a glimpse of who God was but not the complete form of God as he was merely a man."
directly denys the fact that
Phil 2:6 Who, although being essentially one with God and in the form of God [possessing the fullness of the attributes which make God God], did not think this equality with God was a thing to be eagerly grasped or retained,
Phil 2:7 But stripped Himself [of all privileges and rightful dignity], so as to assume the guise of a servant (slave), in that He became like men and was born a human being.
that is BEING one with God. He always was and was not created because He ceated everything that is. Jesus is the Creator, not the created.
He is God (John 1:1)
|17||Does not All hang on Love? mt 22:36-40||Matt 6:24||meusing||72926|
|It seemed like it was nonsense to me, after all, I am not this note I am writing.
God is Love, yes, but He is also Just and Holy.
|18||Does not All hang on Love? mt 22:36-40||Matt 6:24||meusing||72864|
|I believe you are mistaking me with Giam.
1. I beleive that God IS above and separate from His creation.
I do NOT believe that everyting is God.
God is not His creation. Love is only part of what God is. so let us look at God, not love.
|19||Why should we obey God?||Psalm||meusing||64108|
|God's Love is constant. We keep His word out of love and thereby show that we are abiding (living) in the love of and for God.|
|20||Why should we obey God?||Psalm||meusing||64107|
|In answer to your second question :
No, It is faith in Jesus that leads us to have the courage and desire to be obedient because through Him we have eternal life and we do not want to displease Him. Our life is now a life of obeience because we love Him who died for us and gave Himself for us so we might be saved.
