1 Flesh or Spirit Note Psalm HopeinHim Mon 08/1/05, 6:47am 155112
  This is just one examples Doc...

Davidís prayer as a backslider returning to God and asking God for forgiveness shows the pain and misery, he and others like him, are in. When the devil is tempting the righteous to sin, he will never accurately portray sin in this manner:
For the director of music. A psalm of David. When the prophet Nathan came to him after David had committed adultery with Bathsheba. Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you are proved right when you speak and justified when you judge. Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me. Surely you desire truth in the inner parts; you teach me wisdom in the inmost place. Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice. Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me (Psa 51:1-11).
2 p;raying too much , hurt us? Answer Luke 18:1 mark d seyler Mon 08/1/05, 10:24am 155127
  Hi Seedling,

Luke 18:1 And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

The parable Jesus told was of a widow woman who returned again and again bringing her same petition. Here Jesus encourages us to continue in prayer.

Mat 26:39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

Jesus prayed that the Father would "let this cup pass". But He always closed His prayer with "but not My will, Thy will be done."

Pray what is in your heart, and pray without fainting! Be strong in prayer, and be yielded to our Lord. But not our will, rather His will be done.

Love in Christ,
Mark

3 REVELATION ! Note Matt 16:15 CDBJ Mon 08/1/05, 1:54pm 155140
  Greetings Chumley,
Nice post and right on target!

There are likely those on the forum that wonít understand your answer though because they arenít members yet of the church that Christ is building; this is due to the fact that it hasnít been reveled to them yet.
1 Cor. 2:14
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.
It sure gets perplexing doesnít it, the Apostle Paul ran into the same problem.
Romans 10:1-4
Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. [2] For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. [3] For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. [4] For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
Have a great day, CDBJ
4 Are we to pray to the holy spirit? Answer Matt 6:9 Hank Tue 08/2/05, 12:31am 155169
  bjma4: You may be at as much of a loss as I am to understand why another Forum user would express surprise at the answer I previously gave you concerning prayer. It was, as you know, a direct quotation from Matthew 6:9, wherein Jesus taught His disciples to pray, "Our Father who is in heaven, hallowed be Your name." That is our Lord's instructions. You have been given different instructions by another user of this Forum. You may, of course, decide whether to follow Jesus' instructions on prayer, or the tutelage of a Forum poster. The decision, I believe, won't be difficult for you. I'm sorry that on your initial post you were exposed to this sort of thing. There is a lesson in it, however, that pertains to all believers, and that lesson is to accept no teaching by any one any where at any time that is not firmly grounded in the word of God, the Bible. What Jesus taught in Matthew 6:9 is the truth. Anything that is taught that is at variance with what Jesus taught is not the truth. --Hank
5 Are we to pray to the holy spirit? Note Matt 6:9 Ray Tue 08/2/05, 5:35am 155177
  Hi Searcher, This prayer in Matthew 6:9-13 is called the Lord's Prayer, but it really is the disciple's prayer that the Lord taught them to pray.

1) There is a difference between the "our" of Matthew 6 and the "Our" of Genesis 1:26. Who can see a difference? I'll give a hint to anyone who can not see a difference; it revolves around the letter (o)O.

2) Matthew 6:13, "...For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen."

Genesis 1:26, "Then God said, "..."

The God in the Hebrew of Genesis is plural. He said in Genesis 1:26, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness..."

3) If we are made in the image of God, Genesis 1:26 then we serve God, Matthew 6:24, not mammon.

From the heart, Ray
6 I am confussed on what to believe. Answer Bible general Archive 2 New Creature Tue 08/2/05, 5:43am 155178
  The best advice I can give you is:

Stick to Scripture
Prayerfully read the word of God
Pray that the Holy Spirit will guide and teach you since He alone is called the Spirit of Truth
Ignore the teachings of men which easily mislead
Thank God for what the Holy Spirit is teaching you.
7 Are we to pray to the holy spirit? Note Matt 6:9 Ray Tue 08/2/05, 7:24am 155184
  Hi Makarios, We need to look at other Scriptures to compare to the truth of Matthew 6:9.

1) I think of the High Priestly prayer of John 17. Verse 12 says that while Jesus was with them, He was keeping them in "Thy"name. Verse 13 "But now...14 I have given them Thy word..."

John 17:19, "And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth."

21 "that they may all be one;...that they also may be in Us...22 that they may be one, just as We are one.

2) I think of John 16:24, "Until now you have asked for nothing in My name; ask and you will receive, that your joy may be made full."

From the heart, Ray
8 Are we to pray to the holy spirit? Note Matt 6:9 mark d seyler Tue 08/2/05, 9:52am 155196
  Hi Ray,

When the disciples asked Jesus the same question that bjma4 asked this forum, Jesus answered:

Luke 11:2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.

How simple is that? Would you presume to add to what our Lord and Saviour and Master teaches us?

We know that Stephen, as he was being martyred, prayed to Jesus, saying "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." I do not doubt that God heard that prayer.

If you pray with a sincere heart, and say, "Holy Spirit, fill me with Your power!", I believe God hears your prayer. God accepts so much from us, being patient with us while He trains and teaches us.

But if you ask, to Whom should I address my prayer, what can you possibly add to what Jesus answered?

Love in Christ,
Mark
9 Are we to pray to the holy spirit? Note Matt 6:9 Ray Tue 08/2/05, 11:20am 155205
  Hi srbaegon, If one wanted to drive through the state of Michigan here in the USA, he would have to go to Michigan. You can not pray through the Holy Spirit without first going to Him.

Here in Matthew 6:5 the Holy Spirit (God with us) says that the hypocrites and the people who stand on street corners in order to be seen by men have their reward already. "Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full." But you, He goes on to say, go into your inner room and shut the door; therefore do not be like them.

He tells them how to pray and and tells them to pray to the heavenly Father. I have no problem with addressing our prayers to the heavenly Father, but when we hallow His name then we realize that we are praying to the triune God.

From the heart, Ray

10 Are we to pray to the holy spirit? Note Matt 6:9 mark d seyler Tue 08/2/05, 12:04pm 155208
  Ray,

The Holy Spirit intercedes on our behalf (Rom 8).
Jesus also intercedes on our behalf (Heb 7).
This does not mean that our prayers pass through an intermediary to the Father, rather we are told to pray directly to the Father.

So I disagree with your point 1) that the Holy Spirit is "the intercessor". In fact, we "come boldly before the throne of grace" (Heb. 4:16).

11 Are we to pray to the holy spirit? Note Matt 6:9 iktoose Tue 08/2/05, 12:05pm 155209
  Hi Hank,
I had a question about praying to God and proper way to address Him. Since we are discussing the "prayer," I thought it is a good thread to bring up my question. I have always addressed Him, "Heavenly Father," or Dear "Heavenly Father" when I pray. I have seen some church leaders addressing Dear "Lord Jesus," when they pray on behalf of the congregation. Is this biblically correct? Should we concerned about it?

12 Are we to pray to the holy spirit? Note Matt 6:9 srbaegon Tue 08/2/05, 1:10pm 155213
  Hello Ray,

If you are seeing the Spirit of God speaking in Matt 6:5 then you are deceiving yourself. There is no other way to say it.

You are taking verses out of context and trying to force them together to build a theology. John 14:6 has nothing to do with prayer. It simply is not an argument.

Nobody is trying to divide God. Each person in the Godhead has a personality, role, and responsibility. These things must be thought out with care.

Steve
13 Are we to pray to the holy spirit? Note Matt 6:9 Hank Tue 08/2/05, 3:55pm 155222
  iktoose: Thanks for your question. Let me give you some Scriptures and ask you to search them out as well as doing additional research on your own, and in that regard I would recommend that you use an exhaustive concordance which will enable you to read everything that Scripture says concerning prayer. Intensively searching the Scriptures is the only way I know of to learn what the Bible teaches on prayer or any other topic. ...... Jesus prayed to the Father (Matt. 11:25,26; John 11:41,42; John 12:28; John 17:1-26; Matt. 26:39,42,44; Matt. 27:46; Luke 23:34,46). ..... Jesus taught His disciples to pray to the Father (Matt. 6:6 and 6:9; Luke 11:2). ..... The disciples prayed to the Father for confidence in Acts 4:23-31. In the parable of the Pharisee and tax collector, the publican prayed to the Father to have mercy on him, a sinner (Luke 18:9-14). Paul prayed to the Father through Jesus Christ (Romans 1:8-10). Jesus Christ is the mediator between God and men (1 Tim. 2:5) and the Holy Spirit intercedes for us in our prayers with groanings too deep for words (Romans 8:26,27). For other references of Paul's prayers to the Father see Eph. 3:14-21; 2 Tim. 1:3; 1 Cor. 1:4; Philippians 1:3; Col. 1:3; 1 Thess. 1:2; and 2 Thess. 1:3. --Hank
14 God Loves Fervent Prayers Note James 5:16 DocTrinsograce Tue 08/2/05, 8:02pm 155240
  "God looks not at the elegancy of your prayers, to see how neat they are; nor yet at the geometry of your prayers, to see how long they are; nor yet at the arithmetic of your prayers, to see how many they are; nor yet at the music of your prayers, nor yet at the sweetness of your voice, nor yet at the logic of your prayers; but at the sincerity of your prayers, how hearty they are. There is no prayer acknowledged, approved, accepted, recorded, or rewarded by God, but that wherein the heart is sincerely and wholly. The true mother would not have the child divided. God loves a broken and a contrite heart, so He loathes a divided heart. God neither loves halting nor halving." --Thomas Brooks (1608-1680)

  Greetings Obi1!

First of all, 'Lead us not into tempation' is what Jesus said. If you don't like it, you will have to argue with Him about it. :-)

Secondly, how do you know that 1 and 2 John were written after Revelation?

Even if this were true, the order of the books of the Bible is not chronlogical. So, what does it matter that Revelation comes after 1 and 2 John?

Finally, where is there a limit placed upon the number of times that the Bible can be translated? :-)

A translation is simply taking the words of the orginal source document and putting them into the receptor language. So, a translation might take the Greek NT and translate it into English, Latin, or German. This would involve three seperate translations, but it does not change the text of the original document.

  Greetings Grace!

The Bible doesn't deal with travel expense reports! :-)

The question is whether or not the church agreed to pay the pastor's travel expenses.

If it is part of his 'contract', the church is obligated to pay it.

It it is not part of his contract, the pastor can claim the mileage for a deduction on his taxes.

Your Brother in Christ,
