The angel said to me, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.” Luke 1:30-33Read More
My whole life, until 2010, God was faithful in giving me jobs wherever we went, even though I wasn’t as close to Him as I am now. Lately it has been a series of layoffs. I am a good worker and have never been let go for not doing a good job. I prayed and prayed and found a job in a field I had previously been in for many years. I was let go yesterday due to “not being a good fit” for the position. What am I doing wrong? I don’t know how to discern whether a job I get is from God or simply that I jumped the gun and took one I shouldn’t have taken. Are we made to pay the rest of our lives for a bad decision made at a certain point in our lives?
I have a question about Hebrews 11:23. When the parents of Moses “saw that he was beautiful” – does this mean something other than he was just too good looking to kill? Did they recognize him as the deliverer? Were they commended for their faith simply because they had the faith to disobey the edict and save their son, or does the word “beautiful” translate into something else? I’ve always wondered about this. I like what you’ve said about going back to the original language and looking for meanings.
I have always understood that the “outer darkness” will be a place for the unbelieving. I never heard the teaching that it would be a place where the unfaithful believer would be sent where they would experience the weeping and gnashing of teeth until after the millennium until I was reading a book written by a well known minister and bible teacher. And there is another TV preacher who teaches that those believers who practice the acts of the sinful nature will not inherit the Kingdom based on Galatians 5:16-21. What is the difference between not inheriting the Kingdom and not being in the Kingdom? If you will not inherit the Kingdom, how can you be in it?
