1 The Prime of Life is Fleeting Note Eccl 11:10 DocTrinsograce Tue 07/29/14, 4:46pm 240956
  When I consider how my light is spent
Ere half my days in this dark world and wide,
And that one talent which is death to hide
Lodg'd with me useless, though my soul more bent
To serve therewith my Maker, and present
My true account, lest He returning chide.

--John Milton (1655)

6 Scripture for marriage in heaven. Answer Matt 22:30 DocTrinsograce Mon 07/28/14, 4:38pm 240949
  Hi, Mimi...

Welcome to the forum!

See Matthew 22:30; Mark 12:24-25; and Luke 20:34-36.

On the right side of your screen is a Bible search feature that our gracious host has provided for us. You can enter, for example, the word marriage, and find all the verses that contain that word.

7 I sit here blinded by tears but with Answer Bible general DocTrinsograce Sun 07/27/14, 5:08pm 240942
  Hi, Anita...

If anything I have written is helpful, that would be entirely by the grace of God. The old Puritans used to refer speak of the "gift of tears." Left to ourselves, our hearts are but hard and stony.

There are readers of our forum from one side of the world to the other. It is likely that the sun continually shines on those praying for you and your family.

Imagine! One day, perhaps, you will come to us and tell us how the Lord has transformed your sons through the Gospel! Perhaps, in His providence, this is why He has given your sons a praying mother!

In Him, Doc
8 Grace and Grace Alone Note Ps 45:2 DocTrinsograce Sun 07/27/14, 2:53pm 240937
  "What comes from this throne of grace is pure grace, and nothing else; clear grace, free grace; grace that is not mixed, nor need be mixed with works of righteousness that we have done. It is of itself sufficient to answer all our wants, to heal all our diseases and to help us at a time of need. It is grace that chooses, it is grace that calls, it is grace that preserves, and it is grace that brings to glory; even the grace that like a river of water of life proceeds from this throne. And hence it is, that from first to last, we must cry, Grace, grace unto it!" --John Bunyan (1628-1688)
9 Can I get into heaven by being a drug ad Answer Rev 22:15 DocTrinsograce Sat 07/26/14, 8:08am 240930
  Hi, Marty...

In the Scriptures the word sorcery is translated from the root word pharmakeia, where we get our English word pharmacy. Thus, sorcery has fundamentally to do with the use of drugs. Alternatively, the recreational use of drugs is nothing more than drunkenness. Scripture is quite clear that those whose lives are dominated by these things are not saved – please read 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Ephesians 5:5; Revelation 21:8; 22:15.

Therefore, your current state is a very precarious one indeed. I do not think that I can express to you the danger in which you now find yourself. In fact, it would be unloving and sinful for me to offer you any comfort in your condition. On the contrary, you need to see and feel your peril.

Jonathan Edwards, a Congregational New England minister, in 1741 (during the Great Awakening), expressed it well as follows, "The God that holds you over the pit of hell, much as one holds a spider or some loathsome insect over the fire, abhors you, and is dreadfully provoked. His wrath towards you burns like fire; he looks upon you as worthy of nothing else but to be cast into the fire. He is of purer eyes than to bear you in his sight; you are ten thousand times as abominable in his eyes as the most hateful, venomous serpent is in ours. You have offended him infinitely more than ever a stubborn rebel did his prince, and yet it is nothing but His hand that holds you from falling into the fire every moment. It is to be ascribed to nothing else that you did not got to hell the last night; that you were suffered to awake again in this world, after you closed your eyes to sleep. And there is no other reason to be given why you have not dropped into hell since you arose in the morning, but that God's hand has held you up. There is no other reason to be given why you have not gone to hell since you have sat here in the house of God provoking his pure eye by your sinful, wicked manner of attending his solemn worship. Yea, there is nothing else that is to be given as a reason why you do not this very moment drop down into hell."

Nevertheless, Marty, you are alive at this moment, and you are even sufficiently concerned to ask the question you asked. The hope of the gospel is therefore still extended to you (Matthew 11:28-29). However, our God is jealous God (Exodus 20:5), and He will not be satisfied with your dedicated worship of other gods.

I would encourage you to go the following website, look at the free courses that are available there, choose one, and take it:

Meanwhile, those of us who are believers reading this, will be in earnest prayer for you; that the Lord our God will show mercy on you, while there is still time for you.

In Him, Doc
10 Can satan harm us Answer Luke 22:31 DocTrinsograce Sat 07/26/14, 7:19am 240928
  Hi, Marty...

Welcome to the forum!

In a general sense, the devil has free access to those who are his own, however, for those who are redeemed, his access is limited through God; which thing He uses for His glory and our good.

In Him, Doc
