The Bible says that in the Millennium the old things will not be remembered. What, exactly, constitutes the ‘old things.? I’d like to see, up close and personal, the great events of history; the life of Jesus, the Flood, the Creation, etc. Will all of that be forgotten? And yes, there are some earthly things that I really enjoy, sports, trains, Mexican food, etc. Will those things be forgotten as well? What about relationships? Will we have best friends, lovers, romance, dancing, etc? David said in Psalms that he desires nothing except God. Really? So, does that mean we’ll remember nothing of our life here and know only God?
If God knows the end before the beginning, he knows who is going to accept salvation through His Son Jesus before they are born. Is it fair to say that Jesus died on the cross, not for everybody, but only for those who He, the Father, and the Holy Spirit knew in advance?
My question is if you are a real born again believer and are in a back slidden state, will you go in the rapture, is your salvation secure, and do you have the spiritual authority to do spiritual warfare against the enemy and demons in particular if you are back slidden? My 20 year old daughter who is on fire for the Lord is constantly questioning my salvation because of the situation I am in and just doesn’t understand why I can’t get out of it “If I love the Lord and have faith in him”.
I hate where I am and I pray with tears all the time. I believe He is working out His plans for me and that He will get me straight and that I wouldn’t feel conviction if I didn’t have the Holy Spirit, but she makes me feel that at some point, His patience will run dry and that will be the end for me.
I know I am wrong for being in this backslidden state to begin with for my choices but I do love the Lord and I want to change and get things back on track with my life in the Lord. What do you have to share with me? I don’t just want someone to agree with me, but someone who will speak biblical truth to me from an objective standpoint.
I pray that God blesses you and your family greatly for all the insight you share with all of us on a daily basis!
I have a question. Do we own our souls or are they God’s property? What I’m really asking is, can a person “sell their soul” to the devil?
One of the arguments you use that Jesus was willing for us to be healed was when the man asked “Lord, if you are willing…” in Mathew 8:1-3 and the Lord’s answer was “I am willing”.
However, it seems the Lord was not always willing in all cases. For instance concerning the Cananite woman in Mathew 15:22-28. Even though in the end he does heal her daughter, at first He was reluctant. Would this reluctance continue with all gentiles, or was this limited only to his earthly ministry before his death and resurrection?
Other than Jabez (1 Chronicles 4:9-10) Can you give me scriptural evidence of anyone in the Word of God asking for financial prosperity? Is it not God who chooses to bless us as long as we remain in Him and and seek His Kingdom and His righteousness. I believe prosperity is a by-product or benefit of a relationship with God not the center piece of it. I believe God wants us to ask Him for a humble heart. Look at King Solomon. He asked for wisdom! Every time we see someone getting blessed it is because God did the blessing out of His Love, not because the “blessee” asked for it.
Is it is possible that Jesus was abandoned by the Holy Spirit in his last hours on the cross? My idea is that he was abandoned just like many people are going to find out that the Holy Spirit is no longer among them after the rapture. What is your opinion on this please?
How long have humans been on earth? I have read your answer on this topic and if I remember correctly, you stated that Adam & Eve were created about 6 thousand years ago. But scientists have discovered the human remains of a 4.5 million year old woman. I’m confused, and I look forward to reading your answer.
