|1||Purpose of fasting||Matt 6:16||pixie||108651|
|I know about how important fasting is but can someome please explain what purpose it has?
I know it's in obedience. I know it goes along with prayer but why are we told to do it. What is it doing to us spiritually? Thanks.....Pixie
|2||One lamb per household||Ex 12:3||pixie||77599|
|Is Exodus 12:3 a promise that if one member of the household has accepted Christ as the Lamb of God, the whole household will accept Christ or is already covered? It states "One lamb for a household" thanks......Pixie|
|3||Flesh before eating the fruit||Gen 2:21||pixie||77358|
|I have often heard that Adam and Eve were spirit until they ate of the fruit. Is this a common belief? If so how is it that God closed up the flesh in Adam's side?.......thanks.....Pixie|
|4||prayers OF those who've passed on||John 14:6||pixie||75497|
|Someone once told me that our loved ones who have passed on can pray for those of us that they've left behind. Is this part of heavenly worship? Do they remember us and their life here?
|5||Are the fruits only from God?||Gal 5:22||pixie||74299|
|Do these fruits accompany only the spirit? Can a person who is very self controlled show these fruits without the spirit? My husband walked this life ever since I've been with him (11yrs.) and I understand that as far back as age 5 he was this way. Yet he denied God as personal.
I've been looking for the comfort to know that I will see him again(he died in Dec. 2002) I think that living a life like this can only come through the power of God. There are too many temptations in this world.
He didn't want the things of this world. He drove a junky car, never wore any jewelry or even name brand clothes. He was humble and genuine. I find that impossible without God's special touch.
This gives me the hope that The Holy Spirit was holding on to him throughout his life, which gives me hope that He didn't let go of my husband at the end.
I'm only one person with perhaps dogmatic ideas. Your thoughts on the fruits of the spirit might be quite comforting.....thanks.....pixie
