    Well it seems, those who can only quote the letter are unable to explain it(or therefore understand it) when asked to do so. I am far too polite to call them mules

    What is sad is that some think they can have God's Spirit by breaking his Commandments.

    There are many tests to know if someone is from God or not. They mock God's WORD neither take councel or correction from the scriptures but God's Sheep hear his voice and know him who calls them in love to love another.

    Beware of those who teach you can sin and still enter into God's KINGDOM this was the lie from the father of lies in the Garden of Eden being taught be many today. They teach the same teaching as their father.

    God has said if you break my commandments you shall die. He says; "Ye shall not surely die he say.. Ye shall be as God's knowing Good and Evil (Genesis 3).

    How does one know if they know God?

    1 JOHN 2:3-4 [3], And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
    [4], He that said, I know him, and keeps not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

    Do not listen to the father of lies. Only God's WORD is true and we should BELIEVE and FOLLOW it over the teachings and traditions of men that break the commandments of God.

    This is applicable for some now. It is only scripture said in a different way...

    If our eyes are not open we cannot see the Garden of Eden or the paradise of God. Sin closes our eyes and makes us blind but seeking Jesus can open the blind eyes to see and the deaf to hear.

    It is given to the blind to have eyes to see and ears to hear and the lame to walk while those saying they see, see not. Those saying they hear, hear not and those walking walk not. How can you own a mansion when you are poor and do not know it?

    This is because God's ways are spiritual and spiritual things are spiritually discerned and higher then a mountain. If you are not shown from above you will never know God's ways and never reach them. Only the poor blind and naked know the way to God's mountain.

    They that be whole do not need the physician but those that are sick seek him. Many do not know the meaning. Now you say we see therefore your sins remain. Many will not hear because because they do not know Him and have lost or broken their mirror.

    He is the Word of God and those that believe him are those that he has chosen. They follow him because they love him and are loved by him. If you have lost your mirror how can you see who you are and if your lamp has gone out how can you find your way with the road is dark and narrow?

    it is hard to kick against the pricks when it is Jesus you are persecuting...

    I think the saddest thing of all is, people who dedicate their lives to learning the scriptures, even studying the greek to gain better, or more knowledge, and yet, they can then only quote the letter, not explain it when asked to do so. So how is the greek helping them?
    And many such people, are reduced to making pat statements that have no bearing on the reality of their own lives. They must be missing a key ingredient in their studies.

    The light shines in darkness; but the darkness does not understand. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. Light is come into the world, but men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. Every one that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

    But he that does truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. Who can know the Word of God when there is no Word?

    Indeed and if you lose your mirror how will you see yourself and know who you are when you are sick and do not know it. Many do not know the meaning or who the Savior is or who he has come to call because their mirror is broken or lost.

    Those that do not hear him do not KNOW him because they do not FOLLOW him who bids them come. How sad, how sad, for those who choose not to hear or see the one who LOVES them and bids them come for all things are ready.

    When the night is dark and the road is narrow how will you find your way when your lamp has gone out and there are many ditches along the way?

    What is better, to admit you have shortcomings, or, to infer or claim you fully obey the letter the bible says is the letter that kills.
    Is humility and honesty more preferable, or, bearing false witness/claiming you attain to a standard you do not attain to?

    For instance, LGW in a response to me stating people on the website bear false witness/lie about you wrote:

    Hi T7C,

    What amazes me is that some people think that sharing God's WORD if it disagrees with them is lying. [​IMG]

    It is not lying to share God's WORD as God's WORD is not a lie it is the truth.

    Unquote.


    A false statement, for he knew, as did everyone else, that is not the reason I repeatedly stated he bore false witness. It is easy to make pat statements, but the reality of peoples lives is quite different

    He is calling all who have ears to hear and eyes to see. These are they that are poor blind and naked. In times of ignorance God winks at and he is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

    It is hard to kick against the pricks when you have no shoes on. How can you fight the battle when you have no sword and shield? If you wish to find your way to the mountain of God only the mirror will show you the way. Yet only the poor bling and naked can see it because they have looked into the mirror that shows the way.

    Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Tomorrow may be too late.

    Will God pardon those who do not practice what they preach/demand of others what they do not demand of themselves? Only if they repent and change their ways. For they are ignoring the heart of Christ's law. I have to wonder, why such people believe it is more important to go to church on a Saturday than obey the heart of Christ's law

    Whosoever commits sin is a servant of sin. If the son shall make you free you shall be free indeed. Abide in me, and I in you.

    As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. Whosoever abides in him sins not: whosoever sins hath not seen him, neither known him. Little children, let no man deceive you: he that does righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that commits sin is of the devil

    We are sinners indeed but we have a Saviour for those that our Heavenly father have given ears to hear and eyes to see.

    Mark 7:35 KJB - And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain.

    I like it.

    Jesus' very life, is an enacted parable also, for He was to plant the seed into the earth of men's hearts.

    Jesus planted. Holy Ghost watered, and the Father gave the increase ...

    Some were told by the one who knows all things;

    Hearing you shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing you shall see, and not perceive: this was because or a waxed heart that had no feelings that effected the eyes and the ears which confused the understanding.

    This was the ditch of delusion that all fall into that kick against the pricks and have lost their mirror that can be used as a phone to call the doctor.

    Their lamp was a guide to them but they did not have enough oil. Their lamp then went out and now they sit in darkness and have fallen into a dtich and cannot find their way out.

    Some travellers in the way walked by and saw some of these sitting in darkeness who lost their way and offered them some oil for their lamps but they being proud would not accept the gift and did not want to receive any help choosing instead to make them home in the ditch of delusion which the Lord of the way gave them over to because they loved darkness rather then light...

    It is indeed true that some who have ears fail to hear, and those who have eyes fail to see. Hence, they can only quote the letter. People without understanding can do that(the Pharisees of Jesus day being a good example)
