Satan accuses the brethren of sin day and night before the throne. Jesus said HE took away all of our sin. I know whom I believe!!!


Beating the Sheep's comment on 2020-11-16 02:56:42:

John 16

8 And when HE is come, HE will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;

10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.


It is not your job to attempt to do the Holy Spirits job for Him. He's the only one who can operate on a human heart.

Psalm 23: the shepherd's staff is to guide the sheep. Pull them away from danger. He carries the lambs in his arms. At no time does he use the staff to beat a sheep into condemnation. ITS the Holy Spirits WORK to watch over and perfect the New Birth. We don't all get it perfect on day one.

You could learn alot from Chris's style of Teaching. It does not cause a stampede. Painstaking, reasonable, patient, truth.

Your condemnation of people who are not perfect like you think you are, shows that you are a hireling.


Randy's comment on 2020-11-15 22:28:04:

Do you believe Jesus took away your sin? All your sin? If can you still be a sinner? Whosoever is born of God does not commit sin...cannot sin! Sin is all unrighteousness. How can we serve two masters?


Mishael's comment on 2020-11-13 02:09:10:

Yes I do. I also believe in Matthew 26.

My belief in relieving the suffering of others comes from what Jesus taught, and showed us about humility. (Beatitudes)

It's only a loss of rewards at the Bema Seat judgment of Christ.

I pray with people in the Prayer Request Room because people need to hear God loves them and is ready to meet their Needs.

I begin my prayer with the Prayer of Agreement:

"19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."

Faith is Action. It does something. It changes us. It changes people we pray for.

Sometimes I hear back from people who were healed. It boosts my desire to bring Jesus to his lambs and hurting sheep.

Adam and Eve were spiritually connected to God. They knew the rules. Yet they ate the fruit (disobeyed), and lost that spiritual connection. They sinned.

If the Holy Spirit taps my shoulder, I listen up real quick.


Randy's comment on 2020-11-12 22:31:11:

The word "rapture" is in the latin vulcate. Translated as 'caught up'.


Randy's comment on 2020-11-12 22:23:44:

So you don't believe Jesus took away your sin?


Sinning after Salvation How to Conquer it's comment on 2020-11-12 02:32:57:

Very simply, it takes mountain size FAITH in the finished work of Christ Jesus on the Cross. He didn't leave anything undone or over-looked.

After we believe and accept the Gift of forgiveness; we take steps to work out our salvation, with joy: also fear and trembling.

Satan doesn't want us to Feel Free. He comes immediately to ACCUSE us of sins past, present and next week. It'll keep happening until our faith in Jesus gets up off the floor and counters satan With Our Newborn FAITH in the finished work of Jesus. Satan always tempts us to listen to voices that accuse it wasn't enough. We even accuse ourselves! That is the flesh. It is NOT faith. fAITH stands up and screams, "I am the righteousness of God, in Christ Jesus."

Isaiah Chapter 1

16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; CEASE to do evil;

17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

Many people are easily confused (satan is the Author of Confusion), because as newborn Christians we still act sinful, Until we begin to absorb into our spirit, the Bible truths. The Life of Jesus. His shed blood over all of our sins: past, present, future.

When sin happens, repent from the heart, and forgive yourself. Don't give up. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you; warn you when you are getting off course. Obey His promptings.

Study the strength and wisdom of Jesus through the Gospels. He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah (Revelation). He is your faith.



Randy's comment on 2020-11-11 22:35:38:

First of all, the Scripture says "anything without faith is sin!" And "a little leaven leavens the whole lump"! So how can we be "faith full" if we are still "sin full"?????? We were sinners, Jesus took away all our sin, we became 'born again'! What changed? We are supposed to be "NEW"! How can we be "NEW" if we are still old sinners?


Chris's comment on 2020-11-08 19:21:34:

Matthew 24:45-47 & Matthew 25:14-23.

The faithful servant in these portions is not given a name as Jesus wanted to highlight the Truth associated with the behaviour. As a servant, by definition, is one who serves, Jesus showed in both these illustrations that the "faithful servant" is one who behaves & works as his master intends.

In the first Matthew reference, Jesus commends the servant for faithfully looking after his master's house, providing necessary food for others working there as they needed, while he was away. In the second reference, two servants were commended for faithfully & wisely dealing with their master's finances so as to produce an increase in the principal amount given.

The message in both accounts speaks of the level of trustworthiness & busyness of the Lord's servants (His children) so that whenever He comes for us, or we should unexpectedly pass through the vale of death, we shall be commended for our faith & work for His Glory rather than being the unprepared, lazy sluggard who is not watching or being careless in his Christian walk.


Janet Shelley's comment on 2020-11-08 08:32:29:

Who or what is the faithful servant spoken about In Mathew


Rob's comment on 2020-11-07 07:14:52:

The wages of sin is death .

New Testament teaching by Apostle Paul .

Sin shall not have dominion over you .

If you sow to the flesh you will die .

False teachers appeal to the flesh and turn the Grace if God unto sinful practice .

So if you are sinning and unable to get the victory , look at the gospel you believed , it may be devils gospel .

Ask the Lord to help you as you read the scriptures to set you free .

It's not a doctrine alone but real power over sin and a liberty in Christ to follow him in love and truth by his grace .

Faith worketh by love , it not hard to believe God when you know he loves you .

The devil causes all kind of errors to be sure .


Rob's comment on 2020-11-06 22:54:13:

At least if you are going to criticize me do it in a contextual way instead of taking my words out of context , yes you may need a little more education to understand it as well .


Rob's comment on 2020-11-06 22:45:20:

The Lord had his critics too so I can take it as well ! I'm not trying to impress anyone ! But keep to the truth if that offends the fakes too bad !


T's comment on 2020-11-06 21:27:30:

There was an old man and his wife at the car wash. After going through the wash a young man came to the car with his towels to wipe it off. As he finished, the old man angrily barked at the young worker "you missed a whole bunch of spots on the windshield!" The young man apologized, grabbed his towels and began to wipe the windshield again. As he finished the old man angrily said "what are you Blind? There are still spots all over my windshield." The young man again apologized and this time grabbed a fresh towel and proceeded to scrub the windshield. As he finished, the old man became irate but before he could bark at the young man his wife stopped him. She asked "Alfred, let me see your eye glasses. When is the last time you cleaned them?" As she investigated his glasses she noticed many spots all over the lenses.

Ask yourself; what is the moral to the story and how can I apply it to my own life and walk in Christ.

Let's get our lenses clean and help others to see better as well.


Rob's comment on 2020-11-06 19:08:36:

Where is the rapture in the Bible , we know the word is not but the event ?

Last time Mishel gave verses that where out of context and other things and then changed his view saying he did not know , well yes we already knew that !

So again where is this rapture event found in the Bible a second chance to prove you are not a false teacher ! Go for it !


Rob's comment on 2020-11-06 18:59:32:

I'm not concerned about people that do not understand the scriptures, what is chaff to the wheat ?

If anyone believes in the Rapture and all it's doctrines they have no clue on the Bible in general .

If you think you can sin , and expect to go to heaven you have believed a devils gospel .

Both of which M has taught .


Rob's comment on 2020-11-06 18:54:16:

I'm not concerned about and your kind you will be raptured away some day but where too ?

I'm not condemning any one just speaking truth to errors !

Amen !


Rob's comment on 2020-11-06 07:05:53:

God is not mocked ! A great lesson to those that do !


Rob's comment on 2020-11-06 06:00:33:

Hell is full of people that refuse Gods love and persist in sinning . There is no place for them with God , God hates sin more than any of us could image .
