One thing is sure - God is just and whatever happens - It will be fair.

Something I was asked recently - Does the devil know what you are thinking or is he only capable of feeding thoughts?

Thats true MM. I've always wonderded how I was to hunger and thirst after righteousness. Personifying it as Jesus just makes it simpler for me. ( Jeremiah 23:5-6)

Just reviving this old post in light of another discussion regarding fulfilment of the law.. It has been agreed that Jesus came to fulfil the law. It has also been agreed that the law will not pass away. Hence can the new covenant be looked upon this way? - We don't come to God through our observanc...

See, Jesus said He'll fulfil it, not us. He fulfilled the law, is fulfilling it and will fulfil it. Since I'm incapable of doing it myself, I've put my faith in someone who can. I'm personally in Christ. I'm part of Christ's body - Since He is fulfilling the law, I'm doing it as well.

When I subject myself to the Law of Christ, I believe I've entered the Kingdom of God. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus gives all subjects (Christians) functions in the Kingdom. Under His authority, they heal sicknesses, preach repentance unto faith, cast out demons etc. The Kingdom you a...

Firstly, I want to state what I've concluded from the OSAS discussion. The path to savation requires a constant belief and dependence upon Jesus. The Hebrews passage may mean that it'll be impossible for someonle else to lead a backslidden Christian to repent. That does not mean that if the convicti...

I've asked myself in the past of the significance of prayer, if God already knows what I'm going to pray for. Then I learnt - Prayer is God's way of getting God's will done on earth. So, God has His agenda and He knows what it is. He also knows what we're going to ask Him. If its in accordance with ...

I believe in a current spiritual Kingdom of God administered by the Holy Spirit, where all these sermon laws apply. In Christ's body, the humble are exalted. Ammillelialists spitualise all prophecies concerning Israel, including the reign of Christ from Jerusalem and suggest that it only applies to ...

Well, my understanding of the old law of Sabbath was that 6 days man does his own work and then on the 7th, he does God's (or stops doing his). Now, applying this in the spiritual sense, when I become a Christian, I should cease from following my agenda and follow Christ's. This should be done 7 day...

Elishyah wrote:These have entered into His Rest.
Though I broadly agree with your line of thinking, I would say that the meaning of the above in the Bible is ceasing from one's works in order to merit salvation. When we come to Jesus, we enter into God's unfinished 7th creation day.

Elishyah, what role do you think the gathered saints will play in the millenial Kingdom? Will they be in their glorified bodies?
ps. Like judges/governers perhaps?

So far in my research I'm inclined towards a theory which is this - present spiritual Kingdom consumated in a future literal millenial Kingdom. The subjects are all those saved by grace through faith and are all equal. The significance of the land of Palestine lies in the fact that Jesus will rule f...

I don't think a created being can be omniscient or know the future, unless revealed by God - That includes heavenly creatures like angels and demons. Sure, demons know that they are destined for torment, but don't know the full picture. I am inclined to think that Revelation (in Bible) was as much a...
