I was raised a Protestant, have Messianic Jewish friends and have attended their services and they are on Saturday. How can the Christian Church and the Jewish (Messianic) people have such a difference?
We should be on the same page. Please explain if you can. Thank you and God Bless.
In your commentary on Psalm 121 you discussed the benefit of confession. With the many ways human religion has clouded this issue, would you clarify the Biblical view of confession? Exactly what is required to restore my fellowship with the Lord? What about the sins of thought that we might forget about? Do we have to remember each sin in order to ask forgiveness? Or is asking to be forgiven from all sins sufficient? Thank you for your help in this matter!
Last time we discovered Pentecost was not the day the Disciples received the Holy Spirit, but instead, it was a time when He came upon them with an unmistakable display of power (Acts 2:1-4). Remember, they had already performed miracles in the Lord’s name.
I’ve gotten a raft of comments on my comparison of John 20:22 with Acts 2:1-4 in my answer to a recent question. Some were more diplomatic than others in suggesting my understanding of these verses leaves something to be desired.
The doctrine of eternal security, or OSAS (once saved always saved) is one of the most hotly debated topics in all of Christianity. Did the Lord’s death really pay for all the sins of our life, thereby guaranteeing a place in Heaven for all born again believers?
Or, are we responsible for the sins we commit after we become born again, running the risk that our post salvation behavior can cause God to rescind his promise to save us?
And if God will not rescind His promise, can we walk away from our relationship with Him and effectively forfeit our salvation?
You’ll find the answers to these and other questions in this book, as well as Biblical answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about OSAS.
This study is for believers and non-believers alike. It describes three things in detail. What the Lord has done for us in the past, what He’s doing now, and what He’s preparing to do in the future. And it’s all free for the asking, no matter who we are or where we’ve come from. Feel free to down load this and share it with friends and family.
