Psalms 31:23 O love the LORD, all ye his saints: for the LORD preserveth the faithful,
What what , He preserves the faithful,, believers, I have heard a preacher say that they are faithful because they are preserved, but that is not what scripture says is it, God says in his holy word that He preserves the faithful, they his saints are preserved because of their believing . Amen
I understand the words dead in sins as God has given them, the same way as John 3:16 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life The word perish does not mean an "end" rather an eternal separation from God, Continue with Ephesians till v8 For By Grace are Ye saved through faith! Ye were dead, separated from God due to sin and unbelief , through belief you have been quickened, made alive, joined back, reconciled to God. Praise the Lord
To John from Uk God chooses all...but not all will choose God From all those that believe, he chooses his elect.
James 2:5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. John14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. His saints, his elect Believe and keep his words and continue in them Simple really God is sovereign but his will will not overrule mankinds free will Believers chosen from the foundation of the world Unbelievers and unrepentant choose to perish Praise the Lord
Got cut off. See previous comment. You cannot continue in it IF you don't have it. Lies mixed with Truth is not Truth, Unless you have complete uncorrupted truth you cannot be made free and therefore would still be in bondage. Jer 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. Galatians 4:16 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? Repent and believe the gospel, Except Ye repent Ye shall all likewise perish. Praise the Lord
Jim Lincoln you are not related to either Abraham, biblical or political. You are a liar and so is you father. You Compromise the incorruptible for the corrupt. There is One God, He has One Word and it is found in One Book. The King James Bible is the pure and perfected word of God in the English language. When things are different they are not the same. In Dan 3:25 was the fourth like the Son of God....or a son of the gods?..what does your bible say! In Hos 11:12 did Judah rule with God... Or was Judah unruly against God?.which is it they can't both be right!! Acts 3:26 is Jesus the Son of God or the servant of God? I Tim 3:16 was God manifest in the flesh, or did he appear in a body? 1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father the Word, and the Holy Ghost and these three are one. Where is that verse or is that belief also unimportant to you? Where is Math 17:21 18:11 23:14.....hundreds of verses missing, compare maybe they also are unimportant? 2 Cor 2:17...ironic how most versions corrupt the word of God by removing the word corrupt. John 8:31-32 If you continue in my word, then are Ye my disciples indeed. And Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. Notice the first word "IF". You cannot continue in it IF you don't ha
John Yurich USA wrote: What nonsense. The only Republican nominee that was not worth voting for was Nixon. Otherwise all through the 20th Century and up to the present day every single Republican nominee for president was worth voting for. You also write that the "only Republican President that was a crook was Nixon"........ Ummmm you seem to have a short memory and forgot about the Bush Dynasty, their crime syndicate goes way way back.. And you'd vote for a Mormon who holds their perverted book ahead of the bible before someone like Trump and Pence? Richard Nixon although had his faults was used of by God, it was Richard Nixon that came to the aid of Israel in 1973 and armed the Israelis against the Arab states when things looked desperate... Where do your candidates today stand, Donald is pro Israel ,his daughter is married to a Jew, he stands with Mike Pence for the nation of Israel. Hellary and Kaine will continue to fund and support the enemies of Israel as Obama has done for the last 8years, Why not ask Netenyahu or the people of Israel whom they would prefer. Support Trump and Pence, Support Israel. Praise the Lord
Do you really mean that the Creator of all things, the one who said "before Abraham, I was," the one is was, is and is to come, Opinionated if your gonna quote the word of God, you may want to get it right John 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. Our Lord is the" I Am" not the I was, you might want to check the last few verses at the back of the book and see the penalties for messing with his infallible word. Vote Mike Pence. Praise the Lord
Open your eyes Jim and look who stands with Donald and with Hellary. Pence(bible) or Kaine(abortion) Take your pick one of these might be your leader sooner than later... Proverbs 11:14 Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety. With Donald you still have hope, with Hellary there's only Bob (Hope) and he's dead. open your eyes from the darkness Jim and see the light that is before you. Praise the Lord
To the brethren in the U.S of A, Donald or Hellary, um Hitlery, um Hillary, It may not matter ,one is old and the other is old and sick, neither may see out their term if elected, look to their running mates, you may just have a man with a bible in his hands sitting in the Oval Office sooner than later... Vote Mike Pence!!! Proverbs1:5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:=Donald Proverbs 1:25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:= Hellary At least with Donald there is hope that the word of God can still guide him, Praise the Lord
Yes brother so true, we only need to look at the first time the word study is used, Ecc 12:12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. The next verse gives us the correct use of the meaning of study. Ecc 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. Keep his commandments, his words, Yes again be a Berean and search the scriptures daily. Praise the Lord
Hahahaha, No they woul become Christians!!! 2 Tim 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. Luke 9:23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. Follow Christ not Calvin Praise the Lord
To be diligent, to be thorough to be workman like in acquiring knowledge,and understanding. Prov 1: to seek, find, know and share truth with all your heart, Can only be done with and by Gods word. One God, One Truth, One Word
To Dolres, John from UK and Ladybug, Greetings my brothers and sisters, "Truth in love" Martyn Lloyd Jones rightly stated this concerning speaking the truth in love - http://surphside.blogspot.com/2016/10/speaking-truth-in-love.html The great saints you mentioned, Leonard Ravenhill,A.W. Tozer and Martin Lloyd Jones all have one thing in common, they all held firmly to the uncompromising and incorruptible standard of the King James Bible, the pure and perfected word of God. As you read MLJs article you will see he quotes from the KJV whereas our blogger though he be sincere does not, Beware my brethren, a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. When different versions say different things they cannot both be true. See Dan 3:25, 2 Cor2:17, Hos 11:12, Job 19:26.....So soooo much more 2 Tim 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. You knoew some versions even take out the word study! May our Lord and God bless you his saints, continue to keep the faith until the end.
