    God COMMANDS people everywhere - to repent

    Hi! Matt 16:24-26 24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26 For what is a man profited...

    Hi! I agree! yes, that's what I see the Bible to be teaching on the subject!

    God COMMANDS people everywhere - to repent

    Hi! True, there needs to be a change of mind, in order for repentance to begin! I realize that some sincere Christians think it isn't possible for a true Christian to fall away. But I've been taught otherwise, and know of the scriptures that support the truth that some do fall away. No...

    God COMMANDS people everywhere - to repent

    Hi! Yes, as you say - it is so sad! I don't want this world to come to an end any sooner than it has to! So I pray daily for a great spiritual revival to take place throughout the world! A great spiritual revival is a real one - not a fake one, in which most people affected by it have...

    God COMMANDS people everywhere - to repent

    Hi! They won't! It's because having an open heart towards the gospel is absolutely necessary in order to come to repentance that saves. Having an open heart - means to be sincerely seeking God. So many are not sincere in their seeking of God. It makes all the difference between...

    God COMMANDS people everywhere - to repent

    Hi, Nehemiah! Well said - I agree! As you say, and as I've heard other pastors say - there is a great lack of this more correct teaching on this very important subject! It's unfortunate. But I pray daily for spiritual revival to take place throughout the world - it sure needs it!

    God COMMANDS people everywhere - to repent

    Hi! I agree to an extent with how you explained it. But to me - it makes more sense to say that GOd does command everyone to repent - just as it is worded to say in that verse. This doesn't mean that all will choose to obey His commands, of course. But those who choose not to obey that...

    HOW MANY HOURS WAS JESUS DEAD ON THE CROSS?

    Hi! Yes, it's amazing how leftover manna didn't spoil! But there were lots of miracles like that throughout Old Testament times - all through God of course. You say that the feast of unleavened bread didn't begin before the Passover meal. But why does this passage below, call the meal He...

    HOW MANY HOURS WAS JESUS DEAD ON THE CROSS?

    Hi! I understand Watchman Nee to have been a true, dedicated child of God, and have read a number of his books. But he like any human - is not to be trusted above the Bible. We all need to remember that, and prayerfully avoid being overly swayed by human opinion on spiritual matters.

    God COMMANDS people everywhere - to repent

    Hi! Yes, we need a great spiritual revival here in the USA, and around the world! I pray for that daily! God is tired of lukewarmness, and wants our religiousness towards Him to be hot! Professing Christians need to be just as religious and devoted to God on all days of the week as they...

    HOW MANY HOURS WAS JESUS DEAD ON THE CROSS?

    I've seen absolutely no statement of any kind like that in any of his books he wrote- which I've read. In fact, I read that he believed in the trinity of God. And in the proper sense.

    Lordship salvation vs. "easy believism"

    Hi! Matthew 7 does warn against false prophets. Matt 7:15-17 15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree...

    God COMMANDS people everywhere - to repent

    My grandpa Bert, was a Seargeant in World War I. And a seargeant gives commands! And they must be obeyed. God commands people everywhere to repent! It's not a matter of waiting around for someone to do it for you. God already did His part - He provided the way of salvation to the...

    HOW MANY HOURS WAS JESUS DEAD ON THE CROSS?

    Hi! Maybe I had in mind - for one thing, that in the wilderness trip with Moses - people were to prepare the manna before the Sabbath so they wouldn't have to work on the Sabbath. But still, the subject is confusing to me. For example, calling any day - "the day of preparation" besides the...
