Richard in Christ's comment on 2021-05-23 22:38:45:

And the Elect One shall in those days sit on My throne, And His mouth shall pour forth all the secrets of wisdom and counsel: For the Lord of Spirits hath given (them) to Him and hath glorified Him.

He shall be a staff to the righteous whereon to stay themselves and not fall, And He shall be the light of the Gentiles, And the hope of those who are troubled of heart.

All who dwell on earth shall fall down and worship before Him, And will praise and bless and celebrate with song the Lord of Spirits.

And for this reason hath He been chosen and hidden before Him, Before the creation of the world and for evermore.

And the righteous shall be in the light of the sun. And the elect in the light of eternal life: The days of their life shall be unending, And the days of the holy without number.

And they shall seek the light and find righteousness with the Lord of Spirits: There shall be peace to the righteous in the name of the Eternal Lord.

And the Lord of Spirits placed the Elect One on the throne of glory. And He shall judge all the works of the holy above in the heaven, And in the balance shall their deeds be weighed

For from the beginning the Son of Man was hidden, And the Most High preserved Him in the presence of His might, And revealed Him to the elect.

And from henceforth there shall be nothing corruptible; For that Son of Man has appeared, And Has seated Himself on the throne of His glory, And all evil shall pass away before His face, And the word of that Son of Man shall go forth

And be strong before the Lord of Spirits.

And the righteous and elect shall be saved on that day, And they shall never thenceforward see the face of the sinners and unrighteous.

And the Lord of Spirits will abide over them, And with that Son of Man shall they eat And lie down and rise up for ever and ever.

Brother Mitchell, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

When you came to the understanding that WE CAN DO NOTHING; but, Christ does all things for us. You will BE SET FREE.

You want have to achieve the hope set before you, Christ started it. he will complete it. In fact; Christ sees it as already COMPLETE. This is what is meant by coming INTO HIS REST; the works were completed before the foundations of the world were laid.

Ephesians 1:4

Hebrews 4:3

John 15:5

Psalms 92:4-6

YOU ARE DEAD (on your cross); He is alive on HIS THRONE (in you) living HIS life FOR YOU.

YOU have become ONE WITH CHRIST.

John 17:21

Luke 14:27

Matthew 10:38

Luke 9:23

We are THE POT he is THE POTTER.

Those that are in the spirit their mortal bodies being quickened by this same spirit!


Chris's comment on 2020-10-24 15:51:54:

Jim, if you're referring to Jesus while He was on Earth, consider 2 John 1:7, "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist".

And Romans 8:3:"For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh".

After His Resurrection, He still had a human body: "Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have."

And Acts 1:10,11: "And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he (Jesus) went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven."

1 John 3:2, "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is."


jIM's comment on 2020-10-24 05:50:42:

Clearly demonstrating once again that JESUS is NOT flesh and bone but of a spirit nature, i.e. is made of energy and not physical things. Demonstrating once again anyone professing FLESH AND BONE jesus-man is a LIAR, charlatan and is bearing false witness!

On ROMANS 8:15

By nature every person is born in sin through the sinful seed of their natural fathers and conditioned therein (1 Peter 1:23). For that reason and in order to become a son of God, which are born of God, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God, a person must be 'Born Again' (John 1:12,13; 3:3-7; 1 John 3:9; 5:4).

By attending a man-made institution a few hours a week (Acts 7:48; 17:24), does not mean that a person can make a claim that they are followers of Christ and 'Born Again'. That is falsehood, as in truth they follow after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Gal. 4:8; Rev. 12:9). This is how Satan has transformed Himself into an angel of light (2 Cor. 11:13-15).

Only through 'True Repentance' will God be able to reveal Himself, and adopt you as His sons and daughters (Rom. 8:15,23; 2 Cor.6:18; Gal. 4:5; Eph. 1:5; Hebr. 12:5; 1 John 3:1).

The word 'Repent' means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It actually means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' of what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom mankind has been deceived (Rev. 12:9), and what people must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (John 14:17).

You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), It is only by revelation of God that you will come to know Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Gal. 1:16; Eph. 3:3,5; Rev. 1:1). It is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).


fred scanlan's comment on 2020-05-06 06:56:46:

We are creatures here on earth,subject unto those things outside of the spirit of God who created us! Paul refers this as vanity. With all this we have to do with, can be described as the inner workings of a person in this world. "the kingdom of heaven within us".When we learn the truths of God, there is a transformation that takes place a renewing of the mind and spirit. A transfiguring developed through growth in the gospel message. This love is the love He has towards us in Jesus who calls all people unto himself! Our predestination is given through this saving faith in the knowledge of Him who calls us. Christ , is the way the truth and the life. Pray without ceasing, Remember that you are reading Gods word.Not mans.

hope is a vision of SALVATION,through the word of God,which is the scriptures(Bible) that Christ expound it for the Gentiles like me that never happen during old testament era.


MARSHALL JOHN's comment on 2013-04-22 03:42:08:
