I’ve heard ministers of God claim that when they refused God’s call he sent tragedy into their lives even as far as killing their loved ones. They cite Jonah as an example of how far God can go to get someone to obey his call. Is this an accurate description of God? Also Eph. 4:11-13 says the gifts of the Spirit are given until we can all reach a unity in faith etc. Does the church have to get to this point before Christ can come for us in the rapture or is it as a result of the rapture that the church reaches this unity thus leading to an end of the gifts?
I have fallen into a grievous sin that I can’t seem to get away from. I am concerned because I am not very sensitive to it anymore even though I know it is sinful. Is there any way for me to regain that “innocence” and sensitivity to this sin that I once had when I first got saved? I long for it but am convinced that I will never have it again. I can’t even cry about it anymore and that makes me sad.
I have a question concerning Grace. Is it possible or is there a scripture that says we can speak Grace to the mountain? The mountain being sickness, prosperity, problems, etc. In our church service on Sunday, we were told we could speak Grace to the mountain. There was no scripture reference. Can you help me with this?
I’ve recently comes across 2 people who are naming their babies ‘Hunter’. Doesn’t this mean Nimrod? And aren’t they cursing their babies? Now my nephew wants to name his son Hunter. There is still time for him to change his mind, so I would really appreciate your opinion.
The new man in Christ does not have a sinful nature. When you received Christ, you were also circumcised by putting away your sinful nature. Human hands didn’t circumcise you. Christ did. – Col.2:11. It’s possible in a moment of weakness to fall back to Romans 7 and live as though we still have a sin nature, but we can decide to live in Romans 8 because we don’t really have one.
