I believe that God hears the prayers of those in his Son who has the witness of God in themselves. If it is according yo his will he hears us.
1 John 5:11-14
11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. We Know God Hears Us 13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. 14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
Is Mr Trump in Christ? That he and God only knows.
Hi Dave always good thanks. I did pray for Trump before and I do see what you mean.. But we must remember that the antichrist will come our from the political world. I am not saying it is Trump but we must just be aware.
2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
Here we read that Satan gives the Antichrist his seat and power. In God purpose as we know. Again i am not saying it is Trump.
You know it is easier to say God then Jesus Christ..
Even muslims think Alah is God. But when you say Jesus Christ that is a complete different story all togheter.
1 John 5:20
20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
Baloney! People that are opposed to Calvinism are faithful to Jesus' teaching that God loves the whole world and desires all to be saved.
1 Peter 2:8-9
8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were APPOINTED. 9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light
I'll take Jesus' lead: "I pray NOT for the world but for those you have given me, for they are thine" (John 17:9). We must pray for but also "against" sin and those who promote it! Calvary Baptist cannot be considered a Christian congregation any more than these two sodomites could be considered so. They're not misguided - they're lost and are using a platform fueled by "doctrines of demons" to mock Christ and His Word.
Another thing is I would leave the High priest position for the one who earned it by obedience until death even the death of the cross. He alone knows who to pray for in the world for it is He who overcame the world.
We must not decide who we will pray for but pray for our enemies
27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, 28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
