What is highly valued among men is detestable in God’s sight. (Luke 15:15)Read More
I am concerned about my husband. He insists he is a believer but is not living a victorious Christian life. He is an alcoholic and has distanced his entire family, all his former friends, and I am at the end of my tolerance as well. He keeps asking the why everyone hates him and why nothing he tries is ever successful (monetarily). He has been fraudulent in business, thinks nothing of lying, and does it regularly. I have tried to tell him that it may be possible his failure is due to these very things. He doesn’t want to hear it and thinks its a bunch of bull. The way he talks and acts I’m no longer sure he’s a believer. What do you think?
I thought I heard it all with the self and special anointed TV preachers, their jet planes, mansions, expensive cars, phony prophecy, etc. But this week I heard the most bizarre ever coming from a preacher who said he found several portals that lead directly to heaven. He even has a new book on the subject, so it seems to me he was saying that we don’t need to spend time on our knees anymore, just find the heaven portals for instant “Throne Room Admittance”.
I’ve studied the scriptures for years and find many things in the bible that are above my comprehension such as Jacob’s Ladder, Ezekiel’s vision with fiery chariots, Jesus getting into a boat with His disciples and instantly was on the other side of the lake, etc. Even though I can’t comprehend God”s power I do believe every Word, besides, God is not restricted to our law of physics. My question is, do you have any knowledge of anything in scripture referring to “portals” and what is your opinion of this teaching?
Thank you for your daily questions and answer email. I look forward to it and absolutely enjoy your scriptural response.
Re: Hebrews 10:38-39. “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul”. God warns that those who renounce their confession of the Lord Jesus draw back into perdition. His true believers must stand firm, hold steadfast and believe until the very end.
I read this interpretation of Hebrews 10:38 on another website. Do you agree with it?
