whatever causes you to so badly misinterpret what a person writes has nothing to do with me

I have never addressed you...you quoted me and quite innocently I must have hit a nerve

best to just ignore your rant as it has nothing to do with me

don't you think most people find dealing with themselves so much more difficult than pronouncing judgement on others?

this thread is living proof it seems :(

Well, one thing for sure, this thread turns out to prove why the world's people need Jesus and the Ekklesia.

Some have an anti (against or instead of)-Christ arrogant attitude and are reject Holy Spirit urges. They cannot receive divine peace and divine joy. I feel sorry for them.

Some are fakes. Their satisfaction is gained in messing with Christians.
And that's why they are aggressive against those who are in the peace of Christ. It is a challenge to see if they can bring us out of peace and to their level.
They're all over the Net and if you pay even the closest attention you'll notice their tells, that they all sound very very similar to one another. Making the many sometimes actually are just one bearing many names , like the Legion spoken of in scripture.

We think alike. But just like the corrupt famous preachers, they will have a huge fall like Goliath did. The adopted children of God keep humble and close to the ground so that any falls they have are easy to recover and go on from. And what is the command at the end of 1 Corinthians 15 as we wait for the Second Coming of our Savior and Lord. And divine peace and divine joy are so wonderful.

The fundamental purpose of the Church/Body of Christ.

The Church is the Body of Christ. Christ's hand, feet & mouth piece (1 Cor 12:12-27) for this lost world. Teaching sound doctrine (Eph 4:14), a place for/of fellowship (Rom 12:10 & 15:14), prayer (Phil 4: 6-7, the breaking of bread/communion (1 Cor 11:23-26, Acts 2:42).

And most importantly The great commission (Matt 28:18-20, Acts 1:8), sharing the gospel (1 Cor 15:1-4, Rom 10:8-15): Found in the redemptive sin atoning death, burial & resurrection of Jesus the Christ.

What does a God-pleasing church include?
What kinds of worship and preaching are pleasing to Abba Father?
A church that pleases God hears his voice and follow his teaching,it cannot follow a strager.

And 1-- The 1050 New Testament commandments in groups with verses
https://app.box.com/s/eptflx12r976xb2t569abnavicnsd3qo
which the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ help us with.


John 16:13-14

"However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all Truth;

for He will not speak on His own authority,

but whatever He hears He will speak;

and He will tell you things to come.

He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you."



Jesus Christ had the human experiences, so He knows the best timing for certain truths being given to a true Christian.

I believe loving God and loving one another are pleasing to God-- and edifying one another through the gifts God provides-- prophecy, teaching, exhortation, other types of revelation, tongues together with intepretation, and of course singing.
Just a suggestion. If you want people to read you, don't write your posts in white font so that they have to go to the trouble of highlighting your text in order to see what you're saying.

The Truth, I believe this is a HUGE one, but His word is the truth so really I don't think I'm saying anything different, this was just the first thing that came to mind. :geek:
