|1||When will the Antichrist come ?||1 John 2:18||jeremiah1five||241805|
|No, there is at least a question I posted over the weekend that immediately was removed and an ellipses installed, as well as several notes that have been restricted from "appearing on the Homepage." They are still being restricted. Good or bad, true or false, the personal expressions of a Christian and Christ in that Christian should not be censored, nor quenched, nor controlled by another Christian at all. Think of these acts if I was in person with the "moderator" or whoever has the "button" to manipulate, restrict, censor what comes out of my mouth if we were in the same room. I would ask the "Christian" that did this to me to stop. If they did not I would forcibly take action. It is wrong to do this and treat Christians this way. It is sin-ful and evil, and contradict the Presence of God in the believers.|

|3||Is It You, Doc?||Bible general||jeremiah1five||241803|
|justme, I appreciate your commitment to the truth on this matter. I KNOW I had not been the only one. Now, I don't know if I am the target of "what happen to you," but I know that the ONLY moderator in a believers life is the Word of God and the Holy Spirit who applies the Word not only to the individual believers life, but is also sufficient for the Church-body as a whole. When Israel gathered before God at the Tabernacle there was no other "rules" or "guidelines" to which Israel was compelled or commanded to obey else they would be "dealt" with in accordance to those rules or guidelines. What Christians, and brethren that make sites where Christians gather don't realize is that all these sites are rife with "rules of conduct" and "guidelines" and such that dictate to the Christian how they are to act which supersedes the Word of God, and quite frankly, God Himself in the Person of the Holy Spirit, because if one were to "run afoul" of their rules, which may or may not be in compliance to the Word of God, their sin against Christ is compounded daily all across the NET and Christians are being taught to follow human-made rules in same fashion as the Sadducees and Pharisees who compelled the people to obey their interpretations of the Law of God without question, and whoever didn't was excommunicated from the synagogue/Temple the same was the blind man who Christ gave sight in John 9:34 was "cast out" (banned/excommunicated) from the congregation of believers for questioning or disagreeing with their "rule" over the people. This is what Peter was saying when warning those that had the oversight to not "lord it over the people." And if you think about the explosion of information that accompanied the beginning and continuation of the "Information Age," and computers and the Internet that that enables this "age" I am sure the words of Christ are even more understood that because of the "iniquity that abounds (on websites) that the love of many will grow cold." If one is to believe in Sola Scriptura I find it difficult that these would also allow the sola scriptura of written rules and guidelines that supersede the very Word of God, a Word that is TOTALLY SUFFICIENT for the Church today as it was for Israel in their day. There is something very wrong, sinfully wrong, when censorship and muzzling and control of other Christians under the anointing even, goes on daily and without accountability to the Scripture and to God.
"justme," I would like for you to either call or write me that we may talk and I learn of your experiences.
If Lockman is to be a GODly place where Christians can congregate to practice, share, and exercise their God-given gifts, then it is the Church as a people that is to make it happen, not moderators, or people in the dark shadows that treat Christians as though they are still in the world and under the control of the god of this world. We have a higher standard that God is given us in His Word. We are not only obligated, but commanded and instructed in how we are to behave in personal life as well as in corporate life when we gather together as a people. Sola Scriptura is either true and we practice it, or it is a lie and we allow others to dictate our behavior.
|5||Doc, Are you dipping the Sop same as I?||1 Cor 12:16||jeremiah1five||241797|
|It seems that you are the one manipulating me. Tell me, Doc, have I done this to you that you would do this to me in response (Matt. 7:12)?
Are you familiar with the term "spiritual dictatorship," Doc? Because that is what you are doing in muzzling me and the Holy Spirit in me and manipulating my comments and answers by restricting them from being read by others in the Body of Christ here. Your unjust application of "forum rules" and superseding the Word of God in treatment of those born again and in Covenant WITH GOD (not you) are ungodly acts against the Holy Spirit and this Christian. How long will you continue to manipulate me here at this fellowship, Doc? I have done nothing to you. And yet you choose to continue to offend me and Christ in me by your behavior and actions. Please stop.
|6||Is It You, Doc?||Bible general||jeremiah1five||241796|
|Thanks, Doc. I do not want to talk about myself. I'm asking if you are the one that placed a restriction on my comments and muzzling the Holy Spirit in me? Is it you that has done thins thing?|
|7||Is It You, Doc?||Bible general||jeremiah1five||241790|
|Now, are you accusing me of not being obedient to the Lord within my call and gifting? Are you saying now that I am not exercising "self-control, kindness, respect, etc?"
If you have been offended by me for some reason the command to reply is Matthew 18:15.
You still have not answered my question. Are you the one responsible for restricting Christ in me and manipulating me and my comments, answers, and replies?
I don't understand why there are some in the darkness doing these things to Christians? Are you part of that sect?
|8||Does that include opposition to God?||Bible general||jeremiah1five||241787|
|If that is the case, then don't you think you should revise your answer to tracylynnwoods1973? You didn't include to say that if laws are contrary to God we have a duty to obey God not man.|
|9||Doc, Are you dipping the Sop same as I?||1 Cor 12:16||jeremiah1five||241786|
|Doc, are you the one with the button and muzzling the Holy Spirit in me on the several other thread/questions by restricting me and my gift from being exercised to the other members of the Body of Christ here? Is this Reformed theology to do this thing against Christ and Christ in me?
If not you, then who?
|10||Is It You, Doc?||Bible general||jeremiah1five||241785|
|Doc, are you the one that has the button and is restricting my gift in several other thread/questions?|
|11||Could you please give some scriptural re||Bible general||jeremiah1five||241784|
|Doc, I'm done here. This thread is restricted and I will not continue to exercise my gift and my gift be muzzled by you.
|12||Where do threatening voices come from ?||Bible general||jeremiah1five||241780|
|God or Jesus doesn't threaten us with jail or prison per se, but He and they both do say that there are consequences to our every acts, whether good or evil. If evil, judgment is at the door. If good, judgment is at the door. If life and death are in the power of the tongue, so, too is life and death in the power of our acts, whether good and being rewarded, or evil and being rewarded, still. The Lord knows how to bless His kids. Man, too, knows how to bless his kids, whether snakes or bread. Yet sometimes good is rewarded as though evil, and evil rewarded as though good. Changing of times and seasons comes with every generation. Keep in mind that every law on the books of nations the world over are copies of the Law of God, whether not committing theft or murder, except the world doesn't want God a part of their society. A contradiction.|
|13||Could you please give some scriptural re||Bible general||jeremiah1five||241779|
|True, I cannot yet give Scripture to support my understanding of "third heaven," except reason (Isa. 1:18). Neither is there one Scripture that can be given to support the Trinity, yet it is reasoned out.|
|14||Does that include opposition to God?||Bible general||jeremiah1five||241778|
Does our Christian obedience to human institutions also apply to laws and regulations made that contradict and oppose God's Word?
|15||What Did Judas Do to be called Traitor?||Luke 6:16||jeremiah1five||241777|
|Wait a minute. You think it's MY standards? Are you a Christian? Do you read and study the Scripture so that you may KNOW what the Lord expects of you and what and how Christians are to expect of you?
THAT is your accountability and responsibility. I only hold brethren to it as I want them to hold me to it if and when I may fail. It's called being your brother's keeper, or don't you know?
What does that mean..."mainstream orthodox Christianity?" That is not like being a Biblical Christian, is it? Because that's the ONLY KIND of Christian and Christianity in existence.
And if you have to guess [again] at your calling and gift I will tell you now that's most likely not your call and gift. Maybe if you get yourself out of what you dub mainstream orthodox Christianity and get Biblical and into a Biblical Church maybe and study to show yourself approved before God that in His TIME He may reveal your place in the body and there will be no guessing but you will know for sure and then get to acting/functioning according to that placement. That's the best counsel I will give you for now. There needs to be a change.
What you implied in response that I took offense at, please don't do it again. We'll let some time pass that I may know if your repentance is real and sincere and that you have learned to watch what you say. And if my "tongue" gets me in trouble with you please let me know and I will address it. Christians watch each other's backs, at least that's what I know the Lord has taught us. In rank, the King may have our fronts, but it is our brethren that has our backs. There is no such word "retreat" in the kingdom of God. We advance, not turn back. We advance, and not even the gates of "hell" will withstand our advance. My safety and security as a Christian is only as secure as the knowledge and experience of the fellow-soldier beside me. And I want some champions standing beside me in this life, not some limp-wrist double-minded "God loves everyone" pacifistic neophyte who hasn't yet learned to handle the word of life. G.K. Chesterson said it well, "a true soldier for Christ does not fight because he hates those that stand before him; a true soldier for Christ fights because he loves those that stand behind him." Study on how the Body of Christ is decreed to work and function. It will take time. But if you press in you will see the King.
|16||What Did Judas Do to be called Traitor?||Luke 6:16||jeremiah1five||241776|
|No, sadness and guilt is not repentance. Returning the money is.
Don't ignore this fact. It's right there in Scripture. It's not I that has a "unique understanding," I have a Biblical understanding. I am not rejecting the Scripture for a leaning on my own understanding as I do and say things that are right in my own eyes. And whatever is revealed in Scripture is for [us] and our children so that we may DO all the words of this law (Deut. 29:29). I'm sure others can read and see in the Scripture that Judas did repent [change his mind], except they don't have the courage or the Biblical constancy to contradict you in public. I run into that spirit all the time.
|17||What Did Judas Do to be called Traitor?||Luke 6:16||jeremiah1five||241772|
|Hello EdB. That is how I see it. However, it was given me in a different way.
Jesus had a sweet spot where He would take the twelve to get away from the multitude of crowds that followed Him. This was a secret place known only to Jesus and the twelve, and possibly John Mark (writer of the gospel - if you take the man running away naked in the garden as he). No one knew where this secret place was. The priests even commanded the people to reveal the place where Jesus was:
John 11:57 (KJV)
57 Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him.
And it was Judas that approached these religious leaders:
Matthew 26:14-15 (KJV)
14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests,
15 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.
Since it was a secret place and Judas knew the place because he would escape the crowds with the others, this was information that he covenanted to reveal.
John 18:1-2 (KJV)
1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.
2 And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.
In other words, Judas reported Jesus to the authorities. To use the vernacular, Judas snitched on Jesus. This was his betrayal. He knew the secret place and went and not only told where to find him, but was also given a band of soldiers to bring him in.
Then, I thought to myself...Christians today do the same thing, they "do" a "Judas" and report their brethren, they snitch on Christians and Christ in that Christian today still. I have learned not to do that to my brethren. I don't have to if I have the Word of God that instructs and commands in how fellow-brethren are to be treated and Christ in them. We are not instructed in the things of the world when we become Christian, we are given a whole new way of dealing with our brethren, but sadly many, many Christians don't obey, or they just don't care, even possible they are not truly Christian at all. When we come into our new lives we bring the garbage of the old life into the new life and one of the Holy Spirit's Ministry in the Body is to use the Word of Truth (Scripture) to conform the believer into the image of Christ. This means also that brethren are supposed to be loyal to their brethren, devoted, loving, caring, all the family jewels are to be shared in the family, especially being faithful and treating them as the Lord in Scripture commands and instructs. We are not to be unfaithful to Christ and brethren and report (snitch) on our brethren. The Word of God is sufficient in dealing with brethren and in dealing with God. And when we fail to apply the Word of God in our fellowships and interaction we sin against God and against our brethren and do them great injustice.
Thank God for His Word! We don't have to treat our family members like the world treats their own. We have a higher and more righteous standard.
|18||Could you please give some scriptural re||Bible general||jeremiah1five||241768|
|My conclusion comes through reason (Isa. 1:18), and through the Scripture defining the Hebrew word "heaven" along with the question of where Enoch, Elijah, and Moses were prior to the Lord's Transfiguration. I have never committed such a study to paper, and it is not something I have yet to declare as Bible. But you can see that I said "I tend to believe" in hopes that other brethren who may have looked at the question may have a part joined to my part joined to brother so-so's part that we might see the whole. This is the wonder and glory of the Body of Christ in its element.|
|19||greater work than this||John 14:12||jeremiah1five||241766|
|The "greater" works does not mean more spectacular or beyond natural laws. The word "greater" means more in number.|
|20||Where is Heaven ?||Bible general||jeremiah1five||241765|
|Hello Tracylynnwoods1975, if I may...there are only two "heavens" in creation, the atmosphere from the ground to where outer space begins, and outer space where the moon, earth, planets, galaxies, and stars reside. There is also a third "heaven," which is open to various interpretations. I tend to believe third "heaven" to be the Garden of Eden. Outside of these three "heavens" I do not believe God lives or resides in a "heaven" outside creation. In this instance "heaven" in not a place. "Heaven" is a Person.|
