I was just asking the question?Is it what you believe or the Faith of the Son of God? If you have to defend what you believe, it's not the Faith of the son of God. He already died and rose and is seated as King of kings. Do you want to be a king or priest in His kingdom; making intercession for the lost. Or those who desire to be in charge and remain where they are, in understanding: where we dont know God.
"To know Him is life Eternal."
To know Him is to Live from the heart and Love people as they are: accepting that we are Loved as we are. I am not there, if the end was here, i would not be part of the first Resurrection. What about you, what do you think?

Love people as they are? In what capacity?
"For while we yet siners, Christ died for us." Unles we are Loved as we are, we are unable to change: bound by shame that leads to self pity, leads to looking for comfort in adiction and losing sight of God. "Godly sorrow leads to repentance, but worldly sorow leads to death." Love has to lead us to freadom, the Truth that sets us free. "Love does not insist on its own way." Only posisible by the Holy Spirit, and why the New comandment was not given before then. "A new comandment I give to you, that you Love one another, as I have Loved you; that you also Love one another." Its easy to Love those who love us. Tho even there we are distracted from the Lord. Though in the calm before the storm it apears as if we are not in trouble. "While the Bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept," the ones that were ready and the ones that were not. A while ago the Lord told me: your not ready. At that time He also told me: What you dont realise is that the battle is already won, its not as simple as you getting the power, you have to Love the Truth.
A year before that, when I pondered the time of trouble that is coming on the earth, He said: You cant prepare for what is coming. "Faith that works by Love." Is our growing experience in God, in identity with Him. "He that is joined to the Lord, is one Spirit with Him."
Wispered, i think of you as ahead of me so share inspiration please.

Our Lord says, that people who hate Him will also persecute his followers. Also Peter is talking about persecution. The past and present history shows it that christians had to die because the believed in Jesus Christ. Not everybody will, but we have to count with it that we have to suffer ore to die because we believe in Jesus Christ.

Love people..
But never love their sin..
Never love their doctrines of demons..

I am not there, if the end was here, i would not be part of the first Resurrection. What about you, what do you think?
Where is there? And how do you think you can get there?

I am not there, if the end was here, i would not be part of the first Resurrection. What about you, what do you think?
What a terrible thing to think.. If one does not take part in the first resurrection then that would reveal one to be unsaved.. Thus in the second resurrection one would be judged and condemned..

Are you worried that you are running out of time? Man is a dichotomy. Our body is like a self maintaining vehicle, however our soul is the driver. The vehicle program is to survive and reproduce, but the soul program is to serve the Lord. Sin is allowing the vehicle/flesh to navigate itself. Since the flesh is designed for feeding and sex, that is where it gravitates. Being reborn is a quickening of your soul to the Holy Spirit creating a sort of GPS. The thing is you have to turn on the GPS to get the directions. This is achieved by not listening to world and following everyone else who have let their vehicles take the wheel. By meditating in the Spirit, allowing the connection to recalibrate your vessel, and reprogram your mind and destination.

We believe as the faith of God works in us to both will and do His good pleasure as a imputed righteousness. Without his faith or labor of love working in us with us we can do nothing . He must increase we must decrease.
