revival in the days of Hezekiah-How? he complied with the precepts of 2 Chr 7:14. King Hezekiah gathered his religious leaders together &told them: âHear me, ye Levites, sanctify now yourselves, and sanctify the house of the LORD God of your fathers, and carry forth the filthiness out of the holy place.â15 Hezekiah was instructing them to do two things. #1clean the temple of its idols and,#2 clean the altar of their hearts in repentance. We see this in 2 Chron 29 :15 - 16. what the people of God did in response to the kingâs request of getting right with God " And they gathered their brethren, and sanctified themselves, and came, according to the commandment of the king, by the words of the LORD, to cleanse the house of the LORD. And the priests went into the inner part of the house of the LORD, to cleanse it, and brought out all the uncleanness that they found in the temple of the LORD into the court of the house of the LORD. And the Levites took it, to carry it out abroad into the brook Kidron." This is what the people of God did. They searched the temple to find unclean idols and then brought them out, took them, to the brook Kidron and burned them there.
Let's look at the tenses it is obvious that they are clearly laid out for a reason. ( cause leads to effect)Romans 8:29-30 29 For whom he did foreknow, (he knew you before the world began)he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son(he decided to conform you before you did any action), that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.( signifies a spiritual inheritance that the firstborn get also signifies the new spiritual birth) 30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called(since he picked you he is gonna call you with an EFFECTUAL call): and whom he called, them he also justified(the people he called are going to believe in Christ making you justified): and whom he justified, them he also glorified.( anyone he justifies he's going to glorify in Jesus Christ at the right hand of the father in heaven) There will be no spiritual fruit if he does not plant the seed.
Your right Connor it is upsetting. That sounds like satan's message to live for yourself and he's right if you live like they preach you will live your best life now because we know it's not gonna be any good when you die. Christians must take up their cross and put off the self and give up everything to follow him! They don't teach the beatitudes either. All they do is lift man up and bring the importance of Jesus our savior down.
Pray for people in Europe and America. Ramadan is ending, and Isis, yes, Isis, reported send 25 suicide bombers through the Syrian / Turkish border. I think this is just the beginning for along week ahead. I do hope our leaders know their inability to call the enemy Islamic State Islamic jihadists gets people killed.
Let's take their philosophy and give guns to ISIS and whatever terrorists we can find. Let's give all the drunks free beer, vodka, wine and moonshine. Let's give all the illegal aliens money...woops we do that already.
What university did they get their degree from? They will do anything to rebel against God, they have accepted a delusion instead of the truth.
What does the bible say? God owns you, (Genesis 1:1) it's not your body it is property of God whether you like it or not, for Christians our body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, (1Corinthians 6:19-20) glorify God therefore in your body and spirit which is Gods'.
I believe you're confused about what "Christian Identity" also known as "British Israelism"....not at all what you are clearly speaking about...I'm hearing your argument and leans toward "Word of Faith" movement.....SLIPPERY SLOPE....
Barney, I do not believe Trump is going to win. I'll just happy to see this president leave. Most likely, Clinton will win. I can only respond to today's issues. My family are saved, just need to keep handing my sin of fear and anxiety to God.
Lady_Virtue wrote: Bible readers shouldn't be surprised by this (Genesis 2:15; Psalm 104:23; I Timothy 5:8). God gave men a capacity and strength to labour so they can provide for their own, specially those of their own house. Women are not meant to do this or to compete against men in this arena. Of course, God does give women work, keeping house and as keepers at home (Psalm 113:9; Titus 2:3-5). Guiding the house (I Timothy 5:14) is honourable as done unto the Lord; it is not degrading or second best.
Very well said sister! The Lord designed men and women differently. The genders have been so intertwined that even the genuine church is confused. Now if the church has been confused, it is no wonder that the cultures of the world are confused.
When possible, women should stay at home and raise their children and provide a Godly home for their husbands. If they have spare time, then charitable work is also a wonderful thing for them to do.
Now before the naysayers start, I am not saying that all women can do this, but it should the the goal or desire of all women.
Thanks, "Mike" from "New York" for bringing up the remark from "Wayfarer Pilgrim" containing this phrase---'Good riddance in 6 months' I suppose that refers to the Presidential Election. I also suppose W.P. thinks Trump is going to win. It seems to me that many, if not most of the people here commenting on SA news items will not vote for Trump, so Hillary stands a good chance of winning and continuing the policies you see today. I am also thinking that what is happening with the Obama Administration is that they are seeking out all the 'hot buttons' of homosexuality, abortion, gun control, to get people in a lather so that it polarizes our society more and reminds their friends on the Left that they better get out and vote for Hillary. I don't see the same response on the Right; instead I see many conservative and Christians complaining about Trump. If I was an Australian observing this country from a safe distance, I would be happy, because it would mean my real estate value would be going higher because many Americans will be moving to my area and boosting demand for houses.
Their ( dnc) It's about crushing the middle class out of their own country . What their looking to do by allowing the epa regulate the energy department in "clean" coal technology ends jobs. Shoot, the epa tried to regulate water and crop use due to sandstorms in west Texas. Drought and unsettling natural grass lands can start a sand storm in Africa or China and effect our climate here. What value do you have unless it eliminates jobs and people. But, Trump needs to address the whole sale slaughter of children that the Roberts court just just went hard left on. Religious excemptions are not considered in issues of consciousness. . In WW2, the poles had men and women call kapoos who being poles, provided law and order in the Warsaw ghetto. Their job was to snitch and take bribes. I fear under a Clinton administration, we'll have "loving" Christians turn us over to her secret police on the conversations we have here on this forum.
One can only hear and believe, if God so wills it. Observer, Mike God bless, please would you consider listening to this sermon, tinysa.com/sermon/123151641484. ? I'm not into putting up links, but please, humor me
Mike, my spirit was born completely and totally dead. If something is dead, then it is dead and must be made alive before it can comprehend anything spiritual. Now repenting and being born again is certainly the most spiritual thing that can happen to us. Therefore any decision or understanding we have or think we have must have come from the Spirit who drew us and gave us the spirit of truth and repentance. This truth or decision which you allude to cannot be comprehended by our carnal natures; therefore we can take no credit for it which is what you are trying to do.
Sounds a little like which came first, the chicken or the egg. Well they both had to be present at the same time for either to exist. Maybe a bad analogy.
Since I believe the Lord chose me for some mysterious reason which I don't comprehend and I certainly don't think it was because of some inherent goodness or wisdom that I had. All that the Father gives to the Son, "will" come to the Son and those who come He will not cast out, but will raise them on the last day.
According to the above, I don't even have the ability to decide not to follow Him. I am one of His sheep and if I stray, He is faithful to go after me.
