    I thought what is the point in writing a comment, but I thought it is just kind that if I'm passing by and happened to read, to leave some appreciation. So often the internet teaches us to walk by, as if things become the fast-food of information, when really people have taken time to share their words. Information consumerism. Anyway it was nice to read, and I like the thought about the point being Jesus. For me I see it as the point being that Jesus is within me, and when I'm saying what's the point (often), it is because I'm not recognising that, so thank you for the reminder. :-)

    Interesting that you completely ignored the operative part of verse 19, there. "...which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven."

    My 1611 KJV uses the word 'divided' with a margin note definition 'imparted.'

    My NKJV (New King James Version) uses the word 'given.'

    My NIV (New International Version) used the word 'appointed.'

    Funny how the naysayers always seem to 'select' the version that most appears to deny anything demonic, supernatural or that otherwise challenges or disproves modern science or supports the most milquetoast version of the Bible.

    Clearly, if one does their due diligence in seeking the 'true' meaning of a passage, it will be found.

    God created the stars, or demon-gods, to draw away those who are impure of heart and mind so that the 'elect', or those whom God has chosen or found pure of heart and spirit, could be separated 'TO' Him.

    The word Holy means 'separate' in its original ancient language. God clearly commands us to be holy (separate) as He is holy (separate), yet modern Christianity scoffs at and ridicules those with the courage and perseverance to seek God and biblical truth on their own with the guidance of the Holy Spirit (just as God intended it to be) and it swears that we must go to church or a seminary to fully understand the bible.

    Ironically, this is the same old product that the medieval catholic church was selling, now in a more modernized package with the hijacked label 'protestant.' The original protestants would have nothing to do with the modern church as it is today. They were fighting against the very lies and nonsense-biblical-interpretations that are mainstream today.

    If one uses the bible, in its entirety, to define the bible, there are plenty of verses that parallel this concept in the sense that God blinds the unfaithful, hardens the hearts of all those of whom He so chooses and separates His own people to Himself as He pleases.

    Just as Moses suggested to Him:
    Exodus 33:16b "So we shall be separate, Your people and I, from all the people who are upon the face of the earth."

    And the Lord confirmed:
    Exodus 33:19b "I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion."

I've been reading a devotional called Our Daily Bread, and in a journal, I listed on my identity in Christ and recite them out loud and just spend time praying, praising, humming Christian songs, and read Scripture. They've all really helped motivate me to plug into God's Word. I'm still slowly in the process of "listening" to God but I'm getting a little bit better. It's all about progress, not perfection. There's a few books I'm reading right now, one of them is called Make It Happen by Lara Casey and One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. Both are very encouraging and helping me in my faith. I know I wrote a lot and I could keep going but hopefully any one of these suggestions will help someone. There are tons of Bible verses to pray when you're in a slump. Psalms is an awesome place to look.
    Another 'Book" that you may find very, very interesting is by a "fella" mentioned by God whose name was, is, Enoch. here is where you can find it - Book of Enoch | Read online or download the Book of Enoch PDF, EPUB or .MOBI (Kindle)

    Interesting. Have you looked at the LORD God as 'elohim' the creator of this world? In a brief study on the Hebrew "lord god' I found that there is a LORD God(elohim) and then there is a Lord GOD (Adonay Yehovih). Man, just changing a "jot or tittle" can change the perception of the uni-verse(One-verse), or Creation. That God has told us not to worship. So do we live "in" a 'Globe'? or "on" a 'Globe'? Now that is a very serious question to be sure.

    For anyone who is always asking God to build them up to strengthen their faith to humble them to teach them and to deepen the love in them God never said how he was going to answer our prayers did he? It is not through the easy times that we grow the most after all. I have prayed for God to help my family to grow closer for a long time now and now we are worse off than we ever have been money has never been this bad before even to the point where we might lose the house.

    I told my adopted mom the same thing that I have been praying for God to help this family but he never said how he would do it and that this storm we are going through may very well be the answer to my prayers. her response was then you need to pray better because I am tired of storms. Some people can stand in the storms having faith in Christ others need more training and support to be able to stand.

    Im so sorry, is it because of the sunglass that made you find the post disrespectful? Yes I love Jesus and He loves me and I didnt find this disrespectful.

    If i would wear that sunglass, i trust that He would also wear one.

    He wants to be where you are! That David sang a song where shall I go from your Spirit? or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend up into heaven, you are there: if I make my bed in Sheol, behold, you are there. As even Paul the apostle uttered, I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.

    Hi tourist,

    You are a godly man and you are right, about Christian denominations! They are more involved in their own made man doctrines, that the Gospel through the Word of God!
