I wrote the content on this blog with sincere and holy intentions with the knowledge that I had at the time... We live, learn and amend...as errors are exposed and more truths are revealed...
Only GOD is perfect. It's vital that you seek the Lord to expose any errors that you've embraced. Please ask Him to expose any areas of darkness to you and for what is necessary to do to dispossess what's NOT of truth.
Note: I highly recommend the Authorized King James Bible - KJV - NOT the new KJV. I believe that the KJV is the most accurate version in the English language. Some of the Bible translations, such as the NIV version, omit and distort the content. For more on Bible version omissions and distortions, please click the link.
Update - December 10, 2013
Among other vital truths, I learned this:
There is NOTHING in the Holy Scriptures that supports accepting Jesus as our Savior. That decision is NOT of people to do.
John 6:44 - No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
People don’t ACCEPT Jesus. People are drawn to Jesus by the Father. He knew from the foundation of the world...
In the book of The Acts Chapter 10, it speaks of Cornelius.
In verses 1 and 2:
There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band,
A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God always.
But Cornelius was NOT saved until GOD SENT an angel to him to send for Peter... GOD DREW Cornelius - a devout, God-fearing, alms giving, praying to GOD man...
The Acts 11:14 - Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved.
People who are truly saved are to share the truths of GOD, about the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ... True Christians DON’T lead others to Christ. We tell the gospel of GOD truths... GOD draws people... He is the leader. . .
There are bunches of folks in churches who aren’t saved...but believe that they are. . .
Religious people, priests and elders..., crucified Jesus. They likely thought that they were saved. Also, there are numerous people who attend church who ignorantly believe that they're saved. Rather, they are bound by doctrines of devils, and traditions and commandments of men. They don't dwell in GOD/JESUS/HOLY SPIRIT. And they don't worship GOD in spirit and in truth, as is shown in the Holy Bible.
If you have any doubts as to whether your born again experience is authentic, sincerely seek GOD about it and He will reveal. Don't base your experiences, necessarily, on the experiences of others. GOD can move fast, slow or however He deems fit for each individual. We're all unique. GOD knows that and deals with us, accordingly. Note: Yes, we body-of- Christ members have commonalities but we need to be mindful of our unique aspects...and NOT seek to be like anyone other than who GOD has uniquely created us to be...
The truth is that we all have areas of ignorance. It's a good practice to ask GOD to expose areas of untruths to us and areas of error so that we can learn how to dispossess what isn't of GOD and to embrace what is of Him - and HIS GOOD PLEASURE.
Jesus said in John 6:44 - KJV, "No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him:..."
