23 - But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeker such to worship Him.

24 - God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.

Lk. 10:20 - Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in Heaven.

Lk. 10:21 - In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in they sight.

Psalms 23 is all about our loving Father who created us even before the foundation of the world . I wore a pendant around my neck with the 23 psalm engraved on it while I was serving in Vietnam. Just like all the other words of God ,inspired by the Holy Ghost , according to Romans 12 : verse 2 ,we are called to prove God&#39;s Good , Acceptable , and perfect will , which is his word . To prove means to bring forth evidence , without a shadow of doubt by living it , by speaking it and can only be done by believing it ,that is by faith . The first 2 words in Hebrew 11: 1 says , Now Faith . Websters dictionary defines now as the time immediately preceding the present . My point is this , we can wear psalms 23 on a pendant around our necks and read it every day , however to live it out with the NOW kind of faith, proves God&#39;s complete word . Amen !

Either He dose it or not&quot; He is still God.

It&#39;s like a conversation I had with my mother 6 months before she died. She never read her Bible. I just asked her one day, &quot;aren&#39;t you even curious about your Savior you are going to be living with forever? And the wonders of heaven where you&#39;ll be living?

Next day I see her at the table reading her Bible. Read it for over an hour. Became a part of her routine. She asked questions about when she&#39;d see her parents and others who had died. If tell her about what Jesus likes. They need our participation to get them started. I read Psalms to her.

I&#39;ll see her again. :)

Bible reading &amp; Church attendance are not criteria for entrance to Heaven: only your faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross as your sin bearer &amp; the Recipient of the penalty you (and I) rightly deserved. And through your acknowledgement of this &amp; subsequent repentance of sins, the Spirit of God enters your life to give you a re-birth experience &amp; a holiness &amp; acceptability to God.

In my understanding, after such an experience &amp; encounter with a Holy, Merciful God, it behoves us to want to know Him and love Him more. And the chief ways of doing so is by attending to His Word, fellowship with the saints, &amp; enjoying prayerful intimacy with Him.

However, there are some who believe that &quot;now I&#39;m saved, I can do what I like&quot;. However, salvation is proven by a heart &amp; mind change &amp; remembering that &quot;your body is (now) the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God&#39;s.&quot; (1 Cor 6:19,20). Every blessing Don, as you consider this matter &amp; the great cost that was made to redeem your spirit back to a loving God.

John 3:16

Mathew 7:22-27

Mathew 25:31-46

However there is blessing in reading HIS Word

2 Timothy 2:15

Psalm 1:1-3

Psalm 119:105

I&#39;m from the USA, here we can freely buy, read, distribute &amp; discuss the Bible, however In other countries I&#39;ve heard testified people suffer death, imprisonment &amp; horrible challenges just to take part in any of those. Some were trying to get 1 book into hands of churches overseas. I guess my question to you, is: to have the privilege to read or not read a collection of books written for benefit, life, guidance, wisdom (that others risk death to read) why not?

do, you have to read the bible and attend church services to go to heaven

Existence without fear is a pure way to describe &quot;heaven&quot;which only God can provide.

Louise Wilken's comment on 2020-07-18 17:04:03:

But unfortunately to many see the good shepherd as a magic wand... Instead of having faith trust and believe in His word which is the truth they want everything to happen immediately. God&#39;s time is always the best time. Louise

Psalm 23:1 - a proclaimation of King David that the Lord is His Shephered who take good care of him and his needs. Therefore nothing in his need that the Lord will not provide.

So then, if the Lord is also our Shephered, we will lack nothing. We are to rest assured that our Shephered will also keep His sheeps that no one can snatch us out from Him. What more shall we ask for when in Christ Jesus we will have the assurance of His promised and He who promised is faithful and true.

William Kirkland, I certainly hope there are dogs in heaven. Your question roused my curiosity and I Googled &quot;verses about whether pets go to heaven&quot; after remembering about the verse about God&#39;s care of a sparrow.

I found 1Corinthians 15:39 and Romans 8:19 on to be wonderful reads. So yes, they go to heaven.

Additionally, I have wondered whether when we die and leave here do we keep our earthly memories (good and bad) but I feel according to Isaiah 65:16-17 &quot;...: because the former troubles are forgotten and because they are hid from mine eyes.&quot; &quot;For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, or come into mind.&quot;

I also believe that I have read a scripture where we remember &quot;our own&quot; so we will see our own family and pets in heaven but no sorrow will be associated with them just joy.

I hope this helps you. It did me.

Keep reading the Word, it is full of treasures and guidance. I&#39;ve read it through 3 times, now on my fourth and each time the treasures and guidance increase. Every word means something.

Also, people&#39;s comments and Matthew Henry&#39;s commentaries inspire me.


Portia's comment on 2020-06-20 23:47:57:

For someone who is curious about the bible, just maybe god is drawing you. for no one comes to the jesus except he is drawn of the father. so, this is curiosity that will not kill the cat, so to speak. therefore, i suggest that you start in the book of matthew and read a chapter daily, meditate or think about what has been said/written. starting in matthew and following on thru the books after, you will learn more about jesus, who he is and what he has done, ect. i will make prayers for you because i have hope for you.

Psalms 23:1 comment

1;The Lord is my shepherd; there are two types of shepherds, (hireling and a good shepherd)

A hireling is the shepherd that takes care of the sheep only for money yet the good shepherd does it whole hearted, Jesus Christ is the good shepherd who takes good care of the sheep (believers in Christ both Jews and Gentiles) A hireling are pastors that are preaching for money and without money they don&#39;t preach.


Chris's comment on 2020-05-25 20:37:32:

SC, I actually see your lack of understanding of the Scriptures which of course translates to heretical messages. You use the Scriptures, I can see that, but then you pervert it through ignorance. E.g. the Trinity. You assume that the Godhead is Male, as in human male. God is Spirit, without gender, but is referred to as "He, Him", because that is how He has revealed Himself to man. And the same with the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Word of God (without gender), made Man (when you say that "no Mother was anywhere to be found"). Have you forgotten about Mary (Joseph's wife) who was implanted with Holy Seed so as to bring forth a male child, Jesus. This was the only way for God to enter the world.

That "women have been treated as dirt in some countries", is not because of the Godhead being referred in the masculine gender, but because of sin in some males who want to suppress & subjugate women instead of giving them full equality that God had ordained for each of us.

Jesus, the Everlasting Father, is taken from Isa 9:6, where the future special Child is shown to have full equality in the Godhead. And this is not to imply that somehow Jesus has taken over the role of God the Father, but that this Child was the Father's Word made human. In other words, God, the Everlasting Father, came down to man to give His Life for us & He did this in the sending of His Word, Jesus.

Gen 1:26 doesn't speak at all about genders. It is the Godhead at work in Creation (which includes the Word, Col 1:16) & His Spirit (Gen 1:2) - none are of human gender.

SC has been rebuked in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

She or he is reprobate.
