Thank you for your Prayers for Ron

Once again God has Faithfully answered our Prayers, Ron’s Cancer is in Remission and he is no longer having Chemo, last week the Doctor told him that his results were very good and he was out of danger. Can we ever stop Thanking God for His Love and Compassion for us.

Ron still lives with his daughter but visits me when he is able, we are going through a crisis in our Marriage and have for some time. We have been Married 35 years and have shared in Ministry together and had some very Special times to remember with Joy but also sad times that we would prefer to forget.

When we  Love we want to be in Unity, it is why God sent Jesus and yes I want this for Ron and myself too, I have shared about our problems with a few of you and have asked for your Prayer Support which I greatly value and I would appreciate more Heartfelt Prayer from anyone else who feels lead to Pray for us.

I have no doubt that God works everything for good in our lives even hardship and troubled Marriages, our responsibility is to be Faithful to continue to Love and Trust Him, obeying His guidelines and to seek to Love, Pray for and forgive those who hurt us.

Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.

    • Yes Ron’s recovery is so wonderful Caleb, God is indeed God of the impossible and regardless of what tools He uses He is our only Healer. It’s so good we believe in Him many don’t and their lives end up empty and often in despair. How old were you Caleb when you repented and accepted Jesus as your Saviour?

        • I don’t see Ron as often now Caleb but when I do see him next week, I will say Hi for you.

          I was wondering Caleb and I hope you don’t mind me asking again as I’m seeking more detail from you but when did you come to True Heart Repentance and was Baptized with understanding of what you were doing and so asking to receive The Holy Spirit too.

          Looking forward to hearing from you – Anne.

          • I was baptize as an infant, that was when I was born again!!!

            I guess the closer experience to what you are referring probably happen around the time I received my first communion. Ever since then I have I have been blessed with many experiences of repentance, conversion and renewal in faith, in adoration, during spiritual retreats, and through tough times.

            • To be Born Again Caleb happens only after we have Faith and have repented showing we believe in Jesus as our Lord and Saviour which a Baby cannot do so they are under Grace until they are of an age of understanding as confirmed in Scripture.

              The Scriptures below Caleb confirm what it means to be Born Again, we have God’s seed or Nature not Adams, the Old has gone the New has come. We are to work out our Salvation not meaning work for it. God knows those who are His before we are conceived because He knows who will accept Jesus as Their Lord and Saviour and not one of us will be lost.

              1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to Sin, because God’s seed remains in him he cannot go on Sinning because he has been Born of God.

              1 John 5:18-20 We know that no one who is Born of God Sins but He who was Born of God keeps him and the evil one does not touch him.

              When we Sin we are still in darkness as confirmed in 1John 2:3-6 but we do have an Advocate in Jesus and are forgiven, when we are Perfected in Love we have the mind of Christ and do not choose to Sin (1Corinthians2:16) and we walk as He walked by the empowering of The Holy Spirit.

              1John 2:3-6 And hereby we do know that we know Him if we keep His Commandments. He that saith; I know Him and keepeth not His Commandments is a liar and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His word in Him verily is the Love of God Perfected hereby know we that we are in Him. He that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also so to Walk even as He Walked.

              1 John 4:17-19 Herein is our Love made Perfect that we may have boldness in the day of judgment because as He is so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love but Perfect Love casteth out fear because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made Perfect in Love. We Love Him because He first Loved us.

              • Hi Anne,

                We can see evidence that infants were baptized in scripture:

                Peter [said] to them, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the holy Spirit.

                For the promise is made to you and to your children and to all those far off, whomever the Lord our God will call.”

                Acts 2:38-39

                In Acts 16:15,33 and 1 Corinthian 1:16 it is implied that adults and children were baptized, as when the head of a household is converted his entire household was also baptized.

                Paul also notes that baptism has replaced circumcision (Col. 2:11-12), which is given to infants (Lv 12:3, Gn 17:12 and Luke 2:21). Many Jews would have been dismay if the infants were excluded, because that would imply that the new covenant given by Christ is less inclusive and therefore inferior to the old covenant given to Moses. As many biblical scholars, many of them Protestants have pointed out: if Paul meant to exclude infants, he would have to either clarify to the Jews or not have chosen to compare circumcision with baptism.

                To be baptize is to be born again:

                “Nicodemus said to Him, ‘How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he?’ Jesus answered, ‘Truly truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.

                John 3:4,5

                “Unless one is born of WATER and SPIRIT, he cannot enter the kingdom of God”. The people listening understood that Jesus was referring to baptism, as the water of his baptism by John the Baptist and the Spirit descending as a dove.

                The fact that we can’t do anything to merit our salvation is beautifully demonstrated by the fact that we baptize our babies, who can’t do anything.

    • Do you believe Caleb if a Baby or young Child is not Baptized and they die God sends them to Hell to suffer Eternally even though they do not know good from evil? because that is what your Church is claiming by Baptizing Babies for their Sin, please read the Message and Comments on the link below…

      Link- https://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2017/08/01/does-god-send-babies-to-hell/

      The Circumcision mentioned in (Col. 2:11-12) was of the Heart not the flesh.

      Also there is no mention that Babies were Baptized in Scripture only those who believed in the Households were Baptized after hearing the Word of God which Babies would not have understood. But yes the promise was for their Children but it was for when they grew up and understood and believed and repented too, until they did, they were under Grace the same as today.

      Acts 2:41Then they that gladly received His Word were Baptized and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. And brought them out and said Sirs what must I do to be saved? and they said; Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved and thy house. And they spake unto him the Word of the Lord and to all that were in his house. And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes and was Baptized he and all his straightway. And when he had brought them into his house he set meat before them and rejoiced believing in God with all his house.(KJV)

      As we can also see Caleb in the Scripture below, being Baptized is about Faith and Repentance, something Babies do not have or do…

      Matthew 3:5-7 Then went out to him Jerusalem and all Judaea and all the region round about Jordan and were Baptized of him in Jordan confessing their Sins.(KJV)

      Mark 1:4-6 John did Baptize in the wilderness and Preach the Baptism of Repentance for the remission of Sins. And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea and they of Jerusalem and were all Baptized of him in the river of Jordan confessing their Sins(KJV)

      Mark 1:7-9 And Preached saying; There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose. I indeed have Baptized you with water but He shall Baptize you with the Holy Ghost.(KJV)

      Mark 16:15-17 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world and Preach the gospel to every creature. He that Believeth and is Baptized shall be saved but he that Believeth not shall be damned. And these Signs shall follow them that believe, in my Name shall they cast out devils they shall speak with new tongues;(KJV)

      Acts 1:4-6 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem but wait for the promise of the Father which saith he ye have heard of me. For John truly Baptized with water but ye shall be Baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.(KJV)

      Acts 2:37-39 Now 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.For the promise is unto you and to your Children and to all that are afar off even as many as the Lord our God shall call.(KJV)

      Galatians 3:26-28 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been Baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither Male nor Female for ye are all One in Christ Jesus.(KJV)

      • Dear Anne,

        The Catholic Church does not teaches that unbaptized babies are going to hell. I will recommend you to carefully study what the Catholic Church teaches before you make straw man arguments against what you think the Catholic Church teaches.

        A great place to start is the Catechism of the Catholic Church paragraph 1261:

        “As regards children who have died without Baptism, the Church can only entrust them to the mercy of God, as she does in her funeral rites for them. Indeed, the great mercy of God who desires that all men should be saved, and Jesus’ tenderness toward children which caused him to say: “Let the children come to me, do not hinder them,” allow us to hope that there is a way of salvation for children who have died without Baptism. All the more urgent is the Church’s call not to prevent little children coming to Christ through the gift of holy Baptism”.

        For the full context about baptism here is a link to the whole section:

        http://www.vatican.va/archive/ENG0015/__P3M.HTM

        Another place to look is at other official church documents such as:

        The Hope of Salvation for Infants Who Die Without Being Baptized.

        You can find it here:

        http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/cfaith/cti_documents/rc_con_cfaith_doc_20070419_un-baptised-infants_en.html

        Concerning Col. 2:11-12, here is the full text:

        “For in him dwells the whole fullness of the deity bodily, and you share in this fullness in him, who is the head of every principality and power. In him you were also circumcised with circumcision not administered by hand, by stripping off the carnal body, with the circumcision of Christ. You were buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead”.

        The point that I made in my reply was that Paul is directly stating that baptisms is the circumcision of Christ, one that is “not administered by hand, by stripping off the carnal body”. He furthers make the point that it is through the effects of baptism (an action) that we are save because it is in baptism that we are buried and raised with Christ from the dead.

        As Peter says in 1 Peter 3:21:

        “This prefigured baptism, which saves you now. It is not a removal of dirt from the body but an appeal to God for a clear conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ”.

        and all the scriptures that you quoted affirm the power of baptism to save.

        As you noticed believing and repentance are necessary for baptism, mostly because the apostles were preaching to adults. However, in the jewish tradition the act of faith and repentance could be made by the parents on behalf of their children. This is clearly denoted in the fact that the primary efficacious sign that allows a Jew to enter in God’s covenant under the Old Law was circumcision, which was perform to babies.

        Given that Jews knew that every new covenant is better and greater than the former, to exclude babies from partaking of God’s new covenant is to limit it and make it inferior. This would necessitate that the apostle 1) make it clear that babies are to be excluded. 2) Give a good explanation as to why. But nowhere in the bible does it make it clear that babies are to excluded from baptism nor does it say that they need to wait to reach an age of reason before they can be baptize.

        Caleb

        • Sorry Caleb for the late reply but you were in my Spam, I just found you.

          The Point your missing Caleb is that Babies do not have to be Baptized, they are under Grace until they are of an age of understanding as confirmed by the Scripture in the Link I posted for you before.

          We also can’t be Born Again by only having Water Baptism, when we Repent which shows we Believe in Jesus as our Lord and Saviour and the only way to The Heavenly Father who like Jesus and The Holy Spirit are Part of The Godhead or Trinity as we call them today, both meaning 3 in One, we are than able to be Baptized by The Holy Spirit but not before.

          We than Work out our Salvation but not meaning work for it, we show we have it by putting our Carnal flesh to death by The Spirit as we Aim to be Perfected in Love.

          I’m not sure where you are receiving your information from Caleb but it would benefit you greatly to ask God for His Wisdom and Empowering by The Spirit and Seek Jesus to lead you into all understanding, He is our only Spiritual Teacher.

          Blessings – Anne.

          • Dear Anne,

            First, I shared with you scriptures that confirm the Catholic understanding about baptism. Second, I hope that you were able to study what the Catholic Church really teaches about unbaptized babies, and that it clarified your misunderstandings. Third, thanks to the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation I have been sealed in the Holy Spirit, and imparted with wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the lord, all for his Glory!

            Finally, to succinctly answer your question: I get my information from the Church that Christ founded. The same Catholic and Apostolic Church that gave us the bible that you read and that has boldly proclaimed the name of Christ to all Nations for 2,000 years.

    • The Roman Catholic Church Caleb was not the first Church of God it was just called Catholic, meaning Universal, the Christians meet in their homes everyday and later went to the Temple to hear the Original Scriptures read. Your Church was established by Constantine who introduced Pagan customs.

      Yes God did inspire all the Bible Caleb but the Roman Catholic Church have added other Books to it that were found to be in error and were not accepted. Truth cannot contradict itself so agreement with the other Books of Scripture is only logical. If the facts of a Book were inaccurate, it couldn’t have been from God and your Churches Books Caleb were proven to be inaccurate, which if wanted I can share with Scripture confirmation why they are.

      Although we can have the Holy Spirit working in our lives He cannot indwell us unless we have been Born Again and Perfected in Love and this does not happen when we are Babies or living Sinfully as confirmed below.

      1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to Sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on Sinning, because he has been Born of God.

      1John 5 18-20 We know that no one who is Born of God Sins but He who was Born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him.

      1 John 3 – No one who lives in Him keeps on Sinning. No one who continues to Sin has either seen Him or known Him. Dear Children do not let anyone lead you astray. He who does what is right is Righteous, just as He is Righteous.

      Romans 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto Sin but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

      John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth everyone who Sins is a slave to Sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free you will be free indeed.

      Please stop Trusting in Man Caleb and seek God for His Wisdom and empowering Trusting in Jesus our only Spiritual Teacher to lead you into all Understanding.

      Blessings – Anne.

      • Dear Anne,

        First, where is the historical evidence that Constantine founded the Catholic Church and introduced Pagan custom? Without historical evidence you are just repeating your opinion, which is based on old disproven canards and have absolutely no historical support.

        The fact is that there is mounts of historical and archeological evidences show the continuity of church teachings from the time to the apostles to our modern times. The witness of the early church affirm this very point. I invited you to investigate writers like St. Ignatius of Antioch who knew Paul and John, or St. Irenaeus, Clement the first or even St. John Chrysostom all give witness of Catholic teachings in the early church way before Constantine was born.

        Second, it was the Martin Luther who took books out of the bible, because they disagree with his theology not because they contained error. Did you know the Martin Luther wanted to exclude James, because it disagree with his theology about salvation?

        The apostles read a bible that included those books, more importantly they directly quoted from those books that protestant excluded from the bible, even Jesus did!!! If they contained error why quote from them???

        • As I have shared before Caleb; your Roman Catholic Church was not the first Catholic Church which meant Universal and they met in their homes. The books your Church included later that were rejected had some Truth but had error too and God does not make mistakes that is why they were rejected and not included in the Canon of Scripture and they were not mentioned in the Dead Sea Scrolls either in reference to your ones in the Old Testament.

          All Scripture is inspired by God and you can be sure there is no error, such as Angels having Children with earthly Woman as one of your Books claim, they have different D.N.A, which God confirmed about Animals too. These Angels did what those in Sodom and Gomorrah did and are now in chains waiting judgement as Jude confirms. The other Books your Church included have fables, old wives tales, hearsay etc even though they have some Truth having copied other Scriptures.

          You can also be sure Caleb that No where in Scripture does it say Baptism is done by the Sprinkling of water, it was always full immersion, that is why we know Babies were not Baptized, it was introduced later by your Church but is not needed because they are under Grace until they are of an age of Understanding as confirmed in the Scriptures I shared with you and in others.

          I do believe you Love The Lord Caleb and are seeking to Honor Him in your Life but like Cults members you have been deceived, seek Jesus our only Spiritual Teacher to lead you into all Truth asking for God’s Wisdom and Empowering.

          Matthew23:8-10 But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi for One is your Teacher The Christ, and you are all Brethren. Do not call anyone on earth your Father for One is your Father He who is in Heaven. And do not be called Teachers for One is your Teacher The Christ.

          1John 2:26-28 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of Him Abideth in you and ye need not that any Man teach you but as the same anointing Teacheth you of all things and is Truth and is no lie and even as it hath Taught you ye shall abide in Him.

          Colossians 2 :2 -3 That their Hearts might be Comforted being knit together in Love and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God and of The Father and of Christ In whom are hid all the Treasures of Wisdom and Knowledge.

          1John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an Understanding that we may know Him that is True and we are in Him that is True even in His Son Jesus Christ this is the True God and Eternal Life.

          1Corinthians 2: 2-3 & 9-16

          John 15:14-15 Ye are my Friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth but I have called you Friends for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.(KJV)

          Matthew 10:26-28 Fear them not therefore for there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed and hid that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness that speak ye in Light and what ye hear in the ear that preach ye upon the housetops (KJV)

            I hope all is well, as you can see I am trying to make my way back to blogging with the post of the Three Hermits. I hope to have another post for next week!

            Constantine and the Catholic Church:

            If you want to make convincing arguments you can’t just give your opinion on things, but you have to give historical references. So far you haven’t produced any evidence that points towards Constantine founding the Catholic Church. On the contrary there is a mount of evidence that disprove such falsehood. Keep repeating them, won’t make them true.

            Dead Sea Scrolls:

            You mentioned that the books excluded in the Protestant cannon “were not mentioned in the Dead Sea Scrolls”, but this is in fact incorrect.

            Tobit and Sirach were found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. Tobit was found in two scrolls written in Hebrew. One scroll of Sirach was found written in Aramaic and another written in Hebrew. In addition fragments/chapters of the other books were also found in the Dead Sea Scrolls, except probably for the Book of Esther.

            I hope you can visit Israel Antiquities Authority website for unbiased information:

            http://www.deadseascrolls.org.il/learn-about-the-scrolls/scrolls-content

            Not to mentioned that they were all included in the Septuagint the scrolls heavily used by the apostles.

            What say you about all the reference I gave you with chapter and verse in which the apostles quoted from those books that are excluded from protestant bibles?

            You can’t keep ignoring the data.

    • I never just give my opinion Caleb on Spiritual Truths, only on what Scripture or God’s Creation confirms, you need to seek Jesus, He is our only Spiritual Teacher not those who are in your Churches or on the Internet because they mostly copy each others errors.

      Jesus tells us to Ask, Seek and Knock not just to wait to be zapped, we work out our Salvation not meaning work for it.

      The Caves were also full of Pagan literature and false teaching not just writings that confirmed Scripture, the books from your Church that were rejected had error in them as well as Scripture from other books, Jesus did not refer to them by name only the Truth which is also in other Scripture, as I shared before God does not make mistakes or does He contradict His Truth.

      Caleb why does your Church use Father as a name for their Priests when they are told not to by God? only He is our Spiritual Father.

      Matthew 23:8-10 But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi for One is your Teacher The Christ, and you are all Brethren. Do not call anyone on earth your Father for One is your Father He who is in Heaven. And do not be called Teachers for One is your Teacher The Christ.

      • Dear Anne,

        You do give your opinion when you accused the Catholic Church to be founded by Constantine and give absolutely no historical evidence to substantiated your point.

        And when you are presented with actual evidence that contradicts your opinion you simply dismisses it. This is confirmation bias and it only ensures the propagation of falsehoods.

        If the Mathew 23:8 is to be taken absolutely in a literal way as you are doing in your interpratation then may I ask you then did James and Paul referred to Abraham as father in James 2:21, and seven times in Romans 4:1-18 or why Stephen also called Abraham father in Acts 7:1-2? Or later why did Paul referred to himself as father in I Corinthians 4:14-15:

        I do not write this to make you ashamed, but to admonish you as my beloved children. For though you have countless guides in Christ, you do not have many fathers. For I became your father in Christ Jesus through the gospel.

        Best,

        • Caleb ever since I have been Blogging with you, it has been shown that you have sought Man not Jesus our only Teacher for Confirmation in what you believe, even those believing in Evolution or the Big Bang and so you also mistakenly believe that we can Pray to Saints or Mary for forgiveness when the Scriptures tell us clearly that only Jesus can intercede for us He is our Advocate.

          You also have still not confirmed with Scripture that water Baptism can be done by Sprinkling and not just by full Immersion as Jesus showed by His example and you have not explained why Babies need to be Baptized when they are under Grace until they are able to have Faith and understand Salvation in Christ Jesus and I have indeed confirmed with Scripture why you are in error.

          I have also constantly given you Scripture Caleb that confirms what I share in other important Truths, I ask you again; “Why does your Church use Father as a name for their Priests when they are told not to by God? He is our only Spiritual Father, who are your Leadership seeking God or Carnal Men for their Understanding?

          Matthew 23:8-10 But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi for One is your Teacher The Christ, and you are all Brethren. Do not call anyone on earth your Father for One is your Father He who is in Heaven. And do not be called Teachers for One is your Teacher The Christ.

          • Sorry Caleb I forgot to respond to your question about Abraham and Paul being called fathers, either God has contradicted Himself and is in error or they were not Spiritual Fathers the same as He is, ask Jesus He will give you the answer as confirmed in Scripture.

            But as a Help, do you know what it means to be Perfected in Love having put our Carnal Flesh to death or what it means to work out our Salvation?

          • Dear Anne,

            I appreciate the opportunity to sustain a dialogue about the most important thing that we can talk about, our Faith.

            The main issue is that you rely on your own private interpretation of scriptures. You are your own Authority. I make no such claims. True, the Holy Spirit guides us and gives us wisdom and understanding, but Christ made it clear that he left us One Church, that has the authority to bind and to loose. My trust in Christ and the Church that he founded not in man nor my own fallible authority.

            The truth is that every single teaching of the Catholic Church is supported by scripture and tradition. It is what the apostles tough and it is articulated in the witness of the early Christians. As John Henry Newman said to be deep into history is to ceased to be protestant. As I pointed out to you in our dialogue it was the Catholic Church that gave you the bible that you are reading today. It is because of her witness that you know that the Gospel according to John is true and the Gospel according to Mary or Peter are false.

            Part of a dialogue is to listen to each other, contemplate each others points and respond accordingly, without such decorum it becomes very difficult to sustain a reasonable and productive dialogue. This is the second main issue, I feel that you don’t properly weight the scriptures, arguments and historical evidence that I presented to you. You dismiss them and quickly move on to the next argument/challenge. On this discussion you have done it multiple times:

            1. Did you change your opinion about what the Catholic Church teaches about unbaptized babies? or Do you still think that the Catholic Church condemns them to hell?

            2. Did you ponder the scriptural verses that clearly state that baptism is the new circumcision and thereby the practice of baptizing babies has strong scriptural based. Or the arguments pertaining the Jewish views on the nature of Covenant and the implied necessity for Paul to clarify that babies ought not to be baptized? Or the many verses I gave you where it clearly says that the WHOLE Household was baptized, this most certainly include babies?

            3. You made the claim that the Catholic Church was founded by Constantine, but gave no historical evidence to support such fallacy.

            4. I gave you evidence that categorically refute your argument concerning the Dead Sea Scrolls only to be dismiss without any strong foundation.

            5. The fact that you bring Mathew 23:8-10 again points that you didn’t even read my last response, because I did answer your question.

            I am happy to give you the reason of the hope that is in my heart and share my faith with you and actually learn from you, but I also hope that you take my responses more seriously.

            Best,

        • Sorry Caleb, I missed responding about Abraham being called a father, he was not a Spiritual Father but we were from his seed meaning we are Children of the Promise

          Galatians 3:28-29 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither Male nor Female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s then are ye Abraham’s seed and Heirs according to the Promise.

          Paul was also using father figuratively, his Wisdom came from God ( 1Corinthians 2) he was not meaning that he was their Spiritual Father which only God our Abba Father is so this is why your Catholic Priests should not be calling themselves Spiritual Fathers which they do and also claiming they can forgive Sins which they can’t, only Jesus is our Advocate and our only Mediator and we Pray to Him only to intercede for us, to Pray to anyone else is Spiritual Idolatry.

          1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one Mediator between God and Men, The Man Christ Jesus.

          John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I Am The Way, The Truth, and The Life no man cometh unto the Father but by me.

    • This is the last time I will respond to you Caleb in reference to your Churches false Doctrines as you are not reading the Scriptures I have shared or the Links so what is the point of continuing, God’s Truth will set you free but you need to take it to Heart.

      Proverbs 3:5-7 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own Understanding In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes fear the Lord and depart from evil.

      I have always shared Caleb with the Confirmation of Scripture that Jesus is my Authority through the Empowering of The Holy Spirit with my having asked for His Wisdom which none of us were Born or His Empowering I have received both which I asked for and to say I haven’t would show I’m unstable and for you to say I haven’t Caleb means you are calling God a Liar. I don’t want people to Spiritually follow me but Jesus our only Spiritual Teacher, that is why I always add the Scripture now to confirm what I share.

      Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the Principal thing therefore get Wisdom and with all thy getting get Understanding.

      James 1:5-6 If any of you lack Wisdom let him ask of God that giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not and it shall be given him. But let him ask in Faith nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that Man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded Man is unstable in all his ways.

      Luke 11:13…….. how much more shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?

      For more Scripture Confirmation about God’s Wisdom see Link – https://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2012/05/07/the-gaining-of-wisdom/

      1 Corinthians 2:9-16 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of Man the things which God hath prepared for them that Love Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a Man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no Man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the World but the Spirit which is of God that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak not in the words which Man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost Teacheth; comparing spiritual things with Spiritual. But the natural Man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God for they are foolishness unto him neither can he know them because they are Spiritually discerned. But he that is Spiritual judgeth all things yet he himself is judged of no Man. For who hath known the Mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? but we have the Mind of Christ.

      John 16:13 -15. 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. He shall glorify me for He shall receive of mine and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine therefore said I that He shall take of mine and shall shew it unto you.

      1John 2:26-28 These things have I written unto you concerning them that Seduce you. But the Anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you and ye need not that any Man teach you but as the same anointing Teacheth you of all things and is Truth and is no lie and even as it hath Taught you ye shall abide in Him.

      Matthew 10:26-28 Fear them not therefore for there is nothing Covered that shall not be Revealed and hid that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness that speak ye in Light and what ye hear in the ear that preach ye upon the housetops (KJV) perhaps our Computers.

      It would help you very much Caleb if you read again the Scriptures shared on this Post and the links instead of Trusting what you have been told in error by your Church than perhaps Colossians 2 :2 -3 will be proven for us. Jesus also tells us to Ask, Seek, and Knock not just to passively wait to be sapped, although yes we wait on Him to equip us for His good works but we are to first work out our Salvation not meaning work for it.

We trust God’s means and His timing. As a side note: marriage is work! Prayers for joy restored! Isaiah 43:18-19 – “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!
