Re: Basic question: when did the disciples become born again?

"This beginning of His signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory, and His disciples believed in Him. " John 2:11 "Whoever believes in Me has everlasting life." John 6:47 The Bible says the disciples believed in Christ in John 2 before the death, resurrection, etc. Jesus says ever...

Re: Basic question: when did the disciples become born again?

I would expect God to be clear on a subject as vital as this! "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see (perceive, understand) the kingdom of God . . . he cannot enter into (be a part of) the kingdom of God" (John 3:3, 5) A person either has or has not been born aga...

Does anyone actually know what the word CHRISTMAS means?

The word itself has distinct meaning which very few know! So, wishing people "Merry Christmas" has become vague and inaccurate, just a cliche, a customary greeting at this time of year, no salt or light to anyone as all have heard the story before (or so they think). OK, I guess you have looked it u...

Re: Why did God take 4,000 years to bring in the New Covenant?

. . . Jesus' arrival during the Roman Empire's Pax Romana (the peace of Rome) was perfect timing. The known world was united by one language of commerce. A network of global trade routes provided open access to the whole world. . . I have read how earlier civisizations also traded along established...

Basic question: when did the disciples become born again?

1) when they started following Jesus physically
2) when they believed he was the Messiah
3) when he died
4) when he told them to receive the Spirit after he was resurrected (John 20:21-23)
5) Pentecost
6) other?

Re: History of Christianity

I was just wondering about how the church started, how the beliefs of Jesus's early followers might have been different than the modern church. etc. The Christian church got started on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2) where believers in Jesus as the Saviour of mankind, who had been baptised became par...

Re: When Did You Last Lead Someone to the Lord

Of course "lead someone to the Lord" is one of many phrases that preachers have come up with, and what one says it means will differ from what another says. God is a Spirit and if any man has not the Spirit of Christ dwelling within he doesn't yet belong to him (John 4:23-24, Romans 8:9). So I would...

Hi Derrick, I have experienced a bit of what you speak of, and also what I believe is Jesus' solution. Here is my story. I hope you get to visit the international fellowship I'm in so that you can meet many others from different backgrounds who all testify of this answer, and so that you can do the ...

Re: Christian Testimonies - Share yours?

I've attended spirit filled pentecostal churches for years . . . . what you're really made of. Sounds like you are letting these things define you, i.e. they are more real than the wonderful things Jesus Christ says he has done or will do. . . these are the things that define me. I deliberately won...

Re: Christian Testimonies - Share yours?

Sounds like you have it all. I do, and I've spent the last 22 years trying to tell others about it! Sadly many would rather dwell in shadow-lands. Jesus will return for a bride who has made herself bright by making best use of what he has made available. He gave all, is it unreasonable to ask us to...

Re: Christian Testimonies - Share yours?

I was brought up Anglican, but I only went because my dad wanted me to go, there was nothing inspiring there for me so when I left for University I stopped going. While there I started to consider the purpose of my life, and realised I didn't have one that satisfied me, "the world was my oyster", bu...
