So presenting pisteuo the most important word in the NT , and the knowledge of it's true meaning , supported by all the Greek dictionarys is not an acceptable demonstration . If that's not good enough to get your attention , nothing else I have to give will either .

What a powerful message you must have if semantics and one word is what it is founded on.....



God whom, I worship and love preserved His inspired written Word😏


it is perfect and without error

it can be used to even shine light on the truth to a child... if they desire the truth


it is not secret knowledge


it is not hidden

and within it there is the good news🙂

the gospel which teaches of our Lord and savior Jesus christ


it is designed to be shared with those who do not know of our only hope or need for Him


.....as well as shared with sapplings
or anyone... out of love for Him who loved us first

out of love for the lost to be found

and the for the blind to see

That really hurts Bill . Lol

I've been there , and completely understand . I'll keep an eye out for a reply to the post I last gave you at around 3 o'clock yesterday .

But just a warning , I'm flesh and blood and bleed when someone cuts me . I feel every arrow shot at me , and there's alot of them here . If that's all that's happening without any desire from anyone to know what I have to give , I'll move on . And that point is getting closer . Maybe the email i spoke of would serve you better . It's 30 pages .
Did I not reply to that post above?
Post 77,931.

Off out for another date with my wife.
The kids are at the church youth group doing a 'silent disco'
When I say kids the three at home are 19,17 & 16.

It's interesting, I thought it would get easier as the got older.
But as they have it presents a new dynamic.

I understand we all have feelings.
That's one of my weak points.

This will probably be my last post tonight.
I need to do my hair:cool:

Good show BillG, you and your wife will have surrounded yourself with unconditional love and support when you arrive at your "golden years"; children are a blessing from the Lord, amen!

God bless!

Psalm127:2b-5
2b)
"for he grants sleep to those he loves.
3) Children are a heritage from the Lord,
offspring a reward from him.
4) Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are children born in one’s youth.
5) Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them.

why do you lie?

tell me what you believe about Matthew 17:22-27...?
We have unfinished business.

You statement here is clear, just as the others you have made and I have posted. This is easy to understand if a person has been convinced that God created a "bunch of laws" that are against us, and Jesus has to come and "free" you from them.

But the scriptures do not support this belief. It is man's "tradition" to reject God and His Word. From Eve and Cain to the Jews who were trying to "Bewitch the Galatians" by furthering their version the obsolete Levitical Priesthood "Works of the Law" for justification of sins. A Priesthood that the Law and Prophets foretold would be replaced "After those days". Had the Mainstream Preachers of His time respected His Word as righteousness, "EVERY Word" as Jesus instructed, they wouldn't have mixed it with their own logic and religious traditions and would have been like Zechariahs who did strive to "live by Every Word" of God and as a result, Jesus manifest Himself to him, as promised in John 14.

God Laws are His Righteousness. His law contains Mercy, Judgment, and Faith. Jesus is the walking, Talking "Law of God", as it is written. He put God's Laws into action by walking in them perfectly. The preaching that Jesus was a self righteous man who put on an outward Façade of righteousness by walking in "a bunch of laws" just so He could ride roughshod, or claim to be more Holy than the mainstream preachers of His time is foolishness and I am amazed that you would imply such a thing. But if you read your posts, that is exactly what you are preaching. Now I know you got this teaching from somewhere, certainly not the Christ. It is my hope that you might consider all the Warnings of the Christ regarding religious man, and stick to the only true righteousness there is. The Word of God.

Man can not guide his own footsteps into eternity. There is a righteous Path Post. Jesus walked this Path as did Zechariahs, Abraham, Anna, Simeon, Paul, Peter, Stephen, the list goes on and on. But Jesus said there was also another Path, that Many, who call Him Lord, Lord, are on. He said this path leads to destruction, but I don't think those on it believe this truth.

Psalms 119:
1 ALEPH. Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.
2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.

3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.

4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.

5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!

6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.

7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.

8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.

169 TAU. Let my cry come near before thee, O LORD: give me understanding according to thy word.
170 Let my supplication come before thee: deliver me according to thy word.

171 My lips shall utter praise, when thou hast taught me thy statutes.

172 My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteousness.

173 Let thine hand help me; for I have chosen thy precepts.

174 I have longed for thy salvation, O LORD; and thy law is my delight.

175 Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee; and let thy judgments help me.

176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments.


But if you have already been convinced that you are already immortal, and that God's instruction is against you. Keeping you Blind, and burdened and in a yoke of slavery, then of course you would teach that God's "Bunch of laws, and the heathen's "bunch of laws" are no different. This is the point I hope to make.
Matt. 17 does not suddenly make the Word's of Christ you don't believe in Void.

It's amazing TT.

We are like a newly married couple.
We have the time now to spend time together and we actually want to.

God is so good.
All of our kids are believers.
Jack is at uni and works in the church and runs the Uni Christian Union.
Katie is now helping leading the church youth group and giving talks.
And boy does she relate Jesus in words that the youngsters relate to.
I was so blessed when the overseer of the youth group said to me that the kids were asking "Is Katie talking tonight"

The first thing I did when all my kids were born and I could hold them was to lift them up to God. I said "Father thank you for trusting me with my child, I know give them back to you"

Mind you at times in have taken them back and with each one when I do God says "Give them back to me" and I have had to do it again.

Although not physically but emotionally, and spiritually.

God is good.

Thank you Father that you fulfill your promises.

It's to bad the most important gift of God " hearing " isn't even taught in schools . The ability to hear someone speak and process the information is a skill that should have always been taught but never has . Most of us " all " when are listening to someone speak we are either already thinking about how we will respond to that person speaking , or thinking about something completely different , tuning them out while their speaking .

Probably makes it harder for God to speak to us .

Right from when you first arrived here and started posting I knew God had great plans for you. And I'm still convinced of this.

I really feel he is going to open your borders.
Not only will you be a maternal mother, grandmother and great grandmother I believe he is going to use you as a spiritual mother and grandmother.

He promised to work good in all things to conform us to the image of Jesus to walk in the works he has prepared for us from the beginning of time.

Be excited Rose.
Your Father in heaven wants to use you.
It's amazing.

What a powerful message you must have if semantics and one word is what it is founded on.....



God whom, I worship and love preserved His inspired written Word😏


it is perfect and without error

it can be used to even shine light on the truth to a child... if they desire the truth


it is not secret knowledge


it is not hidden

and within it there is the good news🙂

the gospel which teaches of our Lord and savior Jesus christ


it is designed to be shared with those who do not know of our only hope or need for Him


.....as well as shared with sapplings
or anyone... out of love for Him who loved us first

out of love for the lost to be found

and the for the blind to see
I give you props for paying attention , but your not asking the right questions .

Hello forum; it is truly an amazing story that God should choose such a wretched man such as myself for salvation.

This is why it is so foolish to think that "Me, Myself, and I", played any part in the salvation of our soul. It is completely the "Power of God", unto to salvation that; I am saved, that God continues to hold me in the palm of His hand; and He will bring to completion and glorification my salvation; a true believer will have many wonderful works grown out of God's love for us and is "evidence of our saving faith", "nothing in my hands do I bring only to thy cross do I cling."

Romans1:16
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the "Power of God" that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.

Self taught people teaching self taught people is part of the reason todays called out ones are in the state they are in . Everyone wanting a personal revelation from God before we do what He expects all of us to do first .

These brothers & sisters of mine who walk with our LORD guided me when my own ideas were leading me astray , they have lifted me up by God's grace as a brother or sister in Christ should do...
I humbled myself to Almighty God and found in His word that these brothers and sisters of mine had led me correctly...
I am studying the Word of God , and I know the difference from one who leads , and one who stumbles , I think you need a pair of hobnail boots...
