It has been my experience that we have a great God and it is not our great prayers or positive thinking that works miracles but God moving to answer our prayers. And so I have never understood the need for groups of people to pray together about any particular issue. I know that whenever two or more people join together in prayer the Lord is there with them and this is a blessing I can understand anyone wanting to enjoy, but it does not make the outcome any different than if one person prayed, does it? Am I missing something here?
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.
For some time now, I’ve been puzzled about the time between the resurrection and the ascension—wondering why the Lord lingered during those 40 days. It certainly wasn’t to complete His mission. By all accounts, He had already accomplished everything He came to do.
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.
