The Bible teaches it can go in the hand also. Amazing this stuff is becoming a reality and people are mocking it instead than seeing it as a fulfillment of prophecy. How would they have known about something like this 2,000 years ago without God revealing it to them?
Okay, remain in your ignorance then, SMH. As I pointed out, God works in the hearts of all people. How does He do that? Oh yeah, the Word of God. We were talking about God and you got confused. My point was valid, God works in everyoneâs heart through His word. Jesus was the Word and He was sent so that whosoever believes in Him will be saved.
So your response is to say read the WCF? Really?! The Bible tells us faith is not a work. Couldnât you as a believer just agree with that? Instead you want to pretend that God has to put a magic spell on someone to make them believe? Why? Where do you get that from? Even all of those verses referenced in the WCF donât say that!
You really need to read the Bible without all of the commentary. Read it anew and pray that God will clear your mind from all of the dogma and human philosophy that has polluted your mind.
There is no refuting the word of God, so you try to demonize me. I understand, you have nothing else to go to. If the Holy Spirit can do it another way, I imagine He could, the Bible doesnât say. It only teaches that God has chosen the foolishness of the preaching of the gospel to do it. There is no other way! God then has mercy on who He will...those who repent and believe!
Faith is not a work, so salvation isnât by works. Salvation is by grace to believers. In John 6, who was Jesus talking about?
âIt is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.â ââJohnâŹ â6:45âŹ
Those who will be drawn to Jesus are those who have first learned of the Father. Anyone who didnât believe in the Father, also did not believe in His Son. Those who did believe in the Father, also believed in His Son.
The word of God reveals the heart of a person by how that person responds to the message. Itâs what led to the conviction of the Jews on Pentecost! Furthered by more gospel preaching to answer the question, âWhat must we do?â
âHow then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.â ââRomansâŹ â10:14, 16-17âŹ
It is only through the gospel that one can believe, yet you say the gospel doesnât produce conviction of sin! Lol. It doesnât mean everyone who hears will obey it.
The fact that I donât believe you just means you are wrong.
âFor the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.â ââHebrewsâŹ â4:12âŹ
âAnd as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.â ââLukeâŹ â17:26-29âŹ
Sounds an awful lot like today to me. Add to that Israelâs return as a nation and Iâd say we have maybe 20 years left.
What do you think preaching is for if not for pricking the heart? It is through preaching that one may believe. God works in the hearts of everyone and yet they donât always believe. That isnât Godâs fault, as if He fatalistically determined for the person to do so. God would rather have the whole world believe in Jesus and be saved.
âThe Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.â ââ2 PeterâŹ â3:9âŹ
âNow when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.â ââActsâŹ â2:37-38âŹ
Er...sounds like they could repent and be baptized to receive eternal life.
âFor God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.â ââJohnâŹ â3:16âŹ
As a matter of fact, whoever wants to may have eternal life! Isnât it good to know God loves the world that much?
Something happened to me yesterday when using Tik Tok. I liked a video and then two seconds later my phone warned me that someone from Sri Lanka was trying to sign in to my account. I wonder if it is some kind of app like the app that can show you what you look like when your old that supposedly the Russians were using to hack into peopleâs phones?
They or going to let the hate groups dictate who they will give to now. Next they will open on Sundays and sponsor gay pride month! I am disappointed with Dan Cathy and will probably stop going as much. Just the thought of them selling out puts a bad taste in my mouth for Chick-fil-A.
