2 A Will Founded on God's Rule and Reign Note Ps 52:9 DocTrinsograce Mon 03/18/13, 4:17pm 236424
  "Faith is God's gift; so too is that prayer that proceeds from faith. Precisely through believing prayer we overcome that arrogance that would gladly place itself above God. And humility becomes a possibility, for we receive with thanks all good things from His hand, as we derive with supplication our actions from His will. As faith brings about deliverance from the self, prayer brings about repudiation of our selfish will - not so that we will become will-less, but so that our will might be founded on God's rule and reign." --Dr. Werner Neuer (1951-)
3 salvation Answer Romans CDBJ Sun 03/24/13, 8:57pm 236500
  Greetings and welcome to the forum.

In answering your question I think it would be safe to say that the Apostle Paul would be a good example.
Romans 10:1-4 (NASB) Speaking of Israel
1 Brethren, my heart's desire and my prayer to God for them is for their salvation.
2 For I testify about them that they have a zeal for God, but not in accordance with knowledge.
3 For not knowing about God's righteousness and seeking to establish their own, they did not subject themselves to the righteousness of God.
4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
I hope you enjoy the forum, CDBJ
4 A Spirit-Filled Church Note Acts 14:27 DocTrinsograce Tue 03/26/13, 8:58am 236529
  "First, they were related to the apostles (in submission). They were eager to receive the apostles’ instructions. A Spirit-filled church is an apostolic church, a New Testament church, anxious to believe and obey what Jesus and His apostles taught. Secondly, they were related to each other (in love). They persevered in the fellowship, supporting each other and relieving the needs of the poor. A Spirit-filled church is a loving, caring, sharing church. Thirdly, they were related to God (in worship). They worshiped Him in the temple and in the home, in the Lord’s supper and in the prayers, with joy and with reverence. A Spirit-filled church is a worshiping church. Fourthly, they were related to the world (in outreach). No self-centered, self-contained church (absorbed in its own parochial affairs) can claim to be filled with the Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a missionary Spirit. So a Spirit-filled church is a missionary church." --John R. W. Stott (1990), from The Spirit, the Church and the World: The Message of Acts

  Howard you are asking a lot of questions based on little more than bare facts. You really need to be talking to your pastor and lay the whole things out on the table.

Most of all you need to be in prayer.

I think you have a real good answer already but you are looking for someone to give you a way out.
6 what is rededication meen in the bible Answer NT general Morant61 Tue 04/2/13, 8:14am 236612
  Greetings Ray!

Rededication is not a term that is found in Scriptures.

However, there are many examples in Scripture of individuals whose relationship with God had suffered because of sin. For instance, King David was such a person.

Psalm 51 is an example of his prayer of confession. In a sense, this is a rededication in that a believer recognizes that his life is not pleasing to God and ask for God's help to cleanse him of sin.

See also 1 John 1:9.

Your Brother in Christ,

7 Properly Interpreting the Bible Note Bible general Archive 3 DocTrinsograce Sat 04/6/13, 5:10pm 236669
  NINE COMMON ERRORS IN INTERPRETING NARRATIVE

Allegorizing. “Instead of concentrating on the clear meaning of the narrative, people relegate the text to merely reflecting another meaning beyond the text.”

Decontextualizing. “Ignoring the full historical and literary contexts, and often the individual narrative, people concentrate on small units only and thus miss interpretational clues. If you take things out of context enough, you can make almost any part of Scripture say anything you want it to.”

Selectivity. “It involves picking and choosing specific words and phrases to concentrate on while ignoring the others and ignoring the overall sweep of the narrative being studied.”

Moralizing. “This is the assumption that principles for living can be derived from all passages. The moralizing reader, in effect, asks the question , ‘What is the moral of this story?’ at the end of every individual narrative. An example would be, ‘What can we learn about handling adversity from how the Israelites endured their years as slaves in Egypt?’ The fallacy in this approach is that the narratives were written to show the progress of God’s history of redemption, not to illustrate principles.”

Personalizing. “Also known as individualizing, this refers to reading Scripture in the way suggested above, supposing that any or all parts apply to you or your group in a way that they do not apply to everyone else. This is, in fact, a self-centered reading of the Bible. Examples of personalizing would be, ‘The story of Balaam’s talking donkey reminds me that I talk too much.’ Or, ‘The story of the building of the temple is God’s way of telling us that we have to construct a new church building.’”

Misappropriation. “It is to appropriate the text for purposes that are quite foreign to the biblical narrative. This is what is happening when, on the basis of Judges 6:36-40, people ‘fleece’ God as a way of finding God’s will! This, of course, is both misappropriation and decontextualizing, since the narrator is pointing out that God saved Israel through Gideon despite his lack of trust in God’s word.’”

False Appropriation. “It is to read into a biblical narrative suggestions or ideas that come from contemporary culture that are simultaneously foreign to the narrator’s purpose and contradictory to his point of view.”

False Combination. “This approach combines elements from here and there in a passage and makes a point out of their combination, even though the elements themselves are not directly connected in the passage itself.”

Redefinition. “When the plain meaning of the text leaves people cold, producing no immediate spiritual delight or saying something other than what they wish it said, they are often tempted to redefine it to mean something else.” Fee and Stuart use the example of 2 Chronicles 7:14-15: “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.” Christians today want to apply this promise to their own land, but as Fee and Stuart point out, this promise was only directed toward the ancient land of Israel.

8 will I see my love ones in heaven? Answer Bible general Archive 4 DocTrinsograce Tue 04/9/13, 3:04pm 236695
  Hi, Maty...

Welcome to the forum!

Ra McLaughlin of Third Millenium Ministries answers this question very well:

"The Bible indicates that we will know each other when we get to heaven. In fact, it seems to teach that we will even know people we've never met. For instance, when Peter, James and John saw Jesus talking to Moses and Elijah, the apostles seem to have recognized both Moses and Elijah, even though we are not told that there were any introductions (Matt. 17:3-4; Mark 9:4-5; Luke 9:30-33). As another example, in the story that Jesus told about Lazarus and Dives in Luke 16:19-31, Dives (the rich man) recognized both Abraham (whom he had not met) and Lazarus (whom he had met). Also, when Samuel had the witch at Endor call up the spirit of Samuel (which, by the way, is an evil thing to do; cf. Deut. 18:11), Samuel and Saul appear to have recognized one another.

"The Bible also says that there is a direct correspondence between the bodies we have now and the resurrected bodies we will have in the new earth. (Before Jesus returns, departed Christians live as disembodied spirits in heaven; after Jesus returns we will live in new bodies on the new earth; cf. John 11:24; 1 Cor. 15.) So, not only should we be able to recognize people in heaven, but we should also be able to recognize people in the resurrection.

"Beyond this, the Bible seems to indicate that people who have died have some awareness of the things that are happening on earth right now. For instance, Jesus taught that there is rejoicing in heaven when a sinner repents (Luke 15:7,10). Also, in the story of Lazarus and Dives, Dives is at least aware of the fact that his brothers have not been converted (Dives, by the way, is not in heaven but in hell). They do not appear to be able to watch us or to hear us, but they do seem to be able to find out things about us from messengers and directly from God.

"And of course, because the departed saints can talk to God, they can not only find out things about us, but they can pray for us. Proverbs 15:29 tells us that God hears the prayers of the righteous, and James 5:16 tells us that the prayers of the righteous are effective. In many ways, those who are in heaven are more righteous than those who are left here on earth -- they are now free from the presence and corrupting influence of sin. And that implies that their prayers are more effective than our own. I think the people we know in heaven must be praying for us. And if they are, then the more people we know in heaven, the more prayers are being offered for us. That's a good thing. So, even though we miss them and they miss us, they are still praying for us, and we are all still united to one another in Jesus (Rom. 12:5; 1 Cor. 12:25; Eph. 4:25). Right now, we think about them and they think about us. And one day in the future, we will be reunited in heaven. When that happens, yes, we'll recognize them and they'll recognize us."

9 The Tried and Proved Faith of the Body Note Mal 2:8 DocTrinsograce Sun 04/14/13, 10:51am 236721
  "Men must interpret to the best of their ability each particular part of Scripture separately, and then combine all that the Scriptures teach upon every subject into a consistent whole, and then adjust their teachings upon different subjects in mutual consistency as parts of a harmonious system. Every student of the Bible must do this, and all make it obvious that they do it by the terms they use in their prayers and religious discourse, whether they admit or deny the propriety of human creeds and confessions. If they refuse the assistance afforded by the statements of doctrine slowly elaborated and defined by the Church, they must make out their own creed by their own unaided wisdom. The real question is not, as often pretended, between the word of God and the creed of man, but between the tried and proved faith of the collective body of God's people, and the private judgment and the unassisted wisdom of the repudiator of creeds." --A. A. Hodge (1869)
10 Getting into heaven Answer John 14:6 EdB Wed 04/24/13, 8:03am 236769
  John 14:6 (NKJV)
6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

This is probably the most often used verse to support the fact that Jesus is only way to salvation.
Here is another verse that we must be in Jesus for salvation.
John 10:9 (NASB)
9 "I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.

Sin is universal Romans 3:23 (NASB)
23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

1 John 1:7-10 (NASB)
7 but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.
8 If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us.
9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.

Mans righteousness falls short of God's holiness.
Isaiah 64:6 (NASB)
6 For all of us have become like one who is unclean, And all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment; And all of us wither like a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.

When asked the Apostles said this is what must be done for salvation.
Acts 2:37-42 (NASB)
37 Now when they heard this, they were pierced to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Brethren, what shall we do?"
38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
39 "For the promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call to Himself."
40 And with many other words he solemnly testified and kept on exhorting them, saying, "Be saved from this perverse generation!"
41 So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and that day there were added about three thousand souls.
42 They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
11 Help, I'll lose my family. guidance plea Answer Not Specified WErRush Mon 04/29/13, 4:58pm 236857
  I need some guidance.
I am currently booted from my home, because of religious differences. My wife was raised Catholic, me Baptistish. I have recently been worked on by God, and this is continual. But, my wife is calling me religious sickofant, extremist, and many other names, going along with very horrible actions and words while the children are in the same room. She constantly is degrading my family, blaspheming God and interrupting prayers and Bible study, and completely ripping any authority that is ever mustered out of my hands. I asked her to leave several times, with no success, so I had to remove myself for the boys sake. She is very Feministic and has expressed no belief in the Bible.
So, my question is, what should I do. The worldly directions are telling me to have her removed, out of fear for the children (certain past infractions on her part would make this possible.) However, the children would be without their mother, probably forever.
If I don't do that, I risk losing them forever, and supporting her and the boys, because of the tyrannical laws towards husbands.
Any advice would be helpful, and also prayers for our family.

14 please explain was that only the jews Answer Ex 22:29 EdB Thu 05/2/13, 11:09am 236879
  Yes it was only for Jews, it was part of the LAW.
Jesus fulfilled the Law and freed those of us that are in Christ Jesus from the consequence of the Law.

However today in many church young children are brought forth, not just the first born, but all and are dedicated or consecrated to the Lord. The idea here is to make the committment that child will be raised in a Godly manner and the unified prayer is that they will grow up and become righteous man servants or maid servants to the most high God our Lord and Savior Jesus.
15 Who can give communion as per the Bible? Note NT general DocTrinsograce Fri 05/3/13, 7:23am 236896
  Dear STA,

I think I understand. That is a somewhat different question.

Redemptive history is all about what the Lord God has done. He has made dead men living (Ephesians 2:1) and brought estranged men together (Ephesians 2:15), building them together as a temple, made without hands, of which they are living stones, with Christ as the corner stone (Ephesians 2:20). This isn't a matter of man's doing, but entirely a matter of God's doing.

Communion is, as the very word implies, something that we do in participation with one another. We are the church -- the called out ones. When we take communion, we are submitting to our Lord in obedience in His presence, the presence of the church, and even in the presence of the world. It is a picture of the gospel.

God takes His pictures very seriously – see 1 Corinthians 11. That would be sufficient reason enough for us to be very careful. However, another good reason is that the purity of the church is something that we and our leadership have responsibility. Therefore, we use various means to maintain this purity in honor to our Lord; and in showing mercy to the uninformed or unrepentant. This is one of the most important purposes for church discipline.

Consequently, the churches who properly understand these things will make every effort to insure that their people are members in good standing of the church. Things like excommunication have at its root a restorative objective. In addition, the churches also make an effort to instruct the ignorant with essential doctrines. This is done formally through catechism, or less formerly through some kind of new-believers classes.

If you administer communion to yourself, you would be obviating these purposes, and contravening the picture of the gospel, and walking in disobedience to the purposes of our Lord in establishing the ordinances. I would be less than loving and compassionate for you in your plight if I failed to warn you away from this course of action.

Instead, I commend to you three possible choices. Consider them prayerfully.

1. Be baptized, catechized, etc. in the church in which you attend.
2. Find another church in which to follow through with baptism and instruction.
3. If you have already been baptized, attend a communion service at a church that practices open communion (i.e., one that will open the communion table to you under your current circumstances).
4. Simply do not take communion at all, in preference to a failure of omission, rather than an sinful act of commission.

In the mean time, we in the forum will be praying for you.

In Him, Doc
16 marry or not Note Eph 5:3 Edwin Sun 05/5/13, 7:55am 236908
 
Preparing for Marriage

The following verses will I am sure be of help.

Eph 5:22 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.
Eph 5:23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body.
Eph 5:24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so [let] the wives [be] to their own husbands in everything.
Eph 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,

Eph 5:28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself
Eph 5:29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord [does] the church.
Eph 5:30 For we are members of His body, [fn] of His flesh and of His bones.
Eph 5:31 "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh." [fn]
Eph 5:32 This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
Eph 5:33 Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife [see] that she respects [her] husband.

1Pe 3:1 Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives,
1Pe 3:2 when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear.
1Pe 3:3 Do not let your adornment be merely outward--arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel--
1Pe 3:4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.
1Pe 3:5 For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands,
1Pe 3:6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.
1Pe 3:7 Husbands, likewise, dwell with [them] with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as [being] heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.

Gen 2:18 Then the Lord God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone:

When the Lord made Adam He endowed him with certain of, but not all of the Divine qualities. When He made Eve He endowed her with the remainder of His qualities, a different set, His intention being that when they came together as, "one flesh", this new man/woman unit would posses, "all", of the Divine qualities

The expression, "one flesh", although including sexual union, means a great deal more than that.

The woman is complementary to the man, she is neither superior, nor inferior, she is his equal, it is God's intention that each should put the other before self, and endeavor to behave towards each other as,

1Cr 13:4 Love suffers long [and] is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
1Cr 13:5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
1Cr 13:6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
1Cr 13:7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Every blessing to you both.

Edwin.

17 Overflowing with Gratefulness to God? Note Col 2:7 DocTrinsograce Wed 05/8/13, 12:12pm 236963
  "What would happen if I crossed your path tomorrow morning? Would I encounter someone who was an alert and thankful observer of answered prayer, someone who in a pronounced way was grateful for God's many mercies?

"We want to continue throughout the day expressing gratefulness for the innumerable manifestations of God's grace. It's as if God is placing sticky-notes in our lives everywhere. How alert and perceptive of them are you?

"Are you a thankful observer of the countless indications of His provision, His presence, His kindness, and His grace? An ungrateful person is a proud person. If I'm ungrateful, I'm arrogant.

"And if I'm arrogant, I need to remember God doesn't sympathize with me in that arrogance; He is opposed to the proud. Let each of us recognize every day that whatever grace we receive from God is so much more than we're worthy of, and indescribably better than the hell we all deserve." --C. J. Mahaney, from Humility: True Greatness (2005)
18 Faith healing, by his stripes we are? Answer Is 53:5 EdB Fri 05/10/13, 7:11am 236983
  If you read 1 peter 2:24 in context you can see it is talking of a spiritual healing.
1 Peter is basically a quote of Is 53:5.

Many healing ministries have used Is 53:5 in an attempt to increase faith and it leaves some like you questioning what is taking place.

God is our healer Exodus 15:26 (NASB)
26 And He said, "If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the LORD, am your healer."

There is healing in the atonement but it does not have to be manifested instantly or even in our bodies here on earth. But if we die believing in Christ are healing is guaranteed in heaven.

We should always seek God's healing and then trust in God that first God heard our prayer for healing, and that God is moving in our lives to make all things work to our good because we love God and are called to His purpose.

In all things seek God first not a manifestation of God such as healing but first seek God with all you heart mind and spirit and allow God to be God in your life.
19 According to Jesus, can we eat pork? Note 1 Tim 4:4 EdB Fri 05/17/13, 8:21am 237093
  1 Tim 4:4 For everything God has created is good, and nothing is to be thrown away or refused if it is received with thanksgiving.
1 Tim 4:5 For it is hallowed and consecrated by the Word of God and by prayer.

It says everything God has created is good. It further says prayer hallows and consecrates it.

It says nothing is to be discarded or rejected if it is received with thanksgiving.

I think this is pretty inclusive!
