<quoted text>Personally i have 2 theories. 1 is that faith in the father and the promise of the coming savior as prophesized in Isaiah is what saved and\or 2) That under the new covenant God agreed not to destroy mankind again or most of it anyway. Yet the path man was on was one where he was going to doom himself anyway so it was start over which he wasnt going to do or send a savior. The question I guess is why wait the time period between man and when Jesus came since it was known from the beginning we were going to need one? without knowing the mind of God we cant know but itd be interesting to know if the timing was always the same or if event percipitated God waiting or speeding up when Christ came?
Interesing.

To me it is ike yelling "Stay out of the road" after your child is hit by a car.
The "freewill" arguement can only go so far with a "loving God" IMHO.

The True Grace of God
Prequel
Part 3
1. Now bear in mind that Grace had also existed BEFORE the Law of Moses.
A. The First time Grace is mentioned is found in Genesis 6:8... now the word Grace is mentioned here for the first time... but are there any attributes seen of Grace before Genesis 6:8? Where? How? Anyways, here is the scripture where it is first mentioned:
(1) "But Noah found GRACE (or favor) in the eyes of the LORD."
...and it goes on to say this:
a. "This is the account of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, AND he walked with God." * What does that mean here when it says Noah was a righteous man? Doesn't the New Testament say that "there is none righteous"? Is there some kind of conflict between the OT and the NT? If one understood the concept of those passages then they will see that there is no conflict. Now clearly, Noah impressed the Lord beforehand and here is a glimpse of his character in Gen 6:22...
** "Noah did everything JUST AS GOD COMMANDED him." Genesis 6:22
b. Remember, Noah is under God's Grace and He walked with the Lord, that is, he is walked by faith. WALKED being the action word. Getting more into detail, Noah did everything that was commanded of him no matter how silly it sounded. Faith without works is dead.. we can't blame the law on this one even if we tried because the Law hadn't existed as of yet. Let's fast forward a little bit to Hebrews chapter 11 verse 7:
** "By 'faith' Noah, BEING WARNED OF GOD of things NOT SEEN AS YET, MOVED WITH (reverential) FEAR, PREPARED an ark TO THE SAVING of his house...
c. See the words capitalized above? Well actually, I meant just to capitalize the action words to highlight the fact that even under Grace that Noah, thru reverential fear, CHOSE TO DO what God commanded... but what if Noah, under Grace, had decided not to follow God instructions completely in the building of the ark? Some food for thought, anyways, I capitalized everything else because there is a lot going on here in the above verse. God, Noah, Grace, Warning, Faith, Action, Saving... Whew! Now check this out... what made it so that Noah was called righteous? Look at verse 7 of Hebrews 11 again:
** "...by the which (his faith and faithful actions) he condemned the world, and BECAME HEIR of the righteousness which is by faith."
B. So we see that it was God's Grace AND Noah's faith that saved him & his family from the flood which actually made him an HEIR of rightousness (Jesus being the truly righteous One). So what is the difference between Noah's receiving of God's Grace and our present Grace thru Jesus Christ? God's Grace in the Old Testament dispensation was limited because their wasn't a sinless, human mediator yet... but even so, there were those who reverenced The One True God. Now the Grace that comes thru Jesus from God is unlimited because for one, Jesus is the sinless intermediary and two, where sin abounded His Grace much more abounds to "anyone" who put their entire trust in His Son to the saving of their souls thru faith. The similarites between the OT and NT grace seems to me that Grace is related to a forewarning, a window of time to accomplish something before that window closes, reverence, faith and obedience. Is obedience a work of the Law only or can it also be considered a good work of faith also under this Grace period? Is Faith without works dead or no?
C. Next up, did Noah still need Christ? Why or why not? If Grace existed before the Law then why did God give Moses The Law in the first place then (no room for this post but hopefully can get to it next time)??? Also, did Grace exist at the same time the Law of Moses did before Christ?
Interesting points and questions.

REVELATION

Rev 1:9 (Part 4/cont2)

>>> continued...

"I, John, YOUR BROTHER AND COMPANION IN THE suffering and kingdom and PATIENT ENDURANCE that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus."

1. Patient Endurance -

A. Apostle Paul: "Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses; in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger;

...in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love; in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left; through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report; GENUINE, YET regarded as impostors; known, yet regarded as unknown; dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed; sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything.

...We have spoken freely to you, Corinthians, and opened wide our hearts to you. We are not withholding our affection from you, but you are withholding yours from us..." 2 Corinthians 6

B. James: Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, YOUR ENDURANCE has a chance to grow.

...So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing." James 1

Have a sweet rest folks... Jesus is Lord

Happy Everything!

Agree or disagree, it is better IMHO to think about the scriptures than just accepting a doctrine wihtout even thinking about it.

<quoted text> Good evening Rider. Ye..........Our God IS GOOD, indeed he is GREAT, but what you need to understand that we are not perfect because we worship and believe in him, we are still in the flesh and there are times when the 'old man' is going to rise up from time to time even among the most spiritually strong of believers, the warns us that 'if we bite and devour one another, be careful that we do not be comsumed of one another'.
Yes God is indeed good, and there is NO failure in HIM, but the failure is in US, and all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, but it still doesn't change HIS status.
Blessings.
You are spiritually clueless, so quit your self aggrandizing by lying that you are "spiritually strong". It just makes me laugh.

Today's Prayer

Oh Lord, how precious are the seasoned saints. I thank You for faithful Christians who are such loving and sweet examples of Your growing children who have been tried and tested time and time again and who have experienced Your hand of blessing, only to pass along that faith heritage and their testimonies to others. May You bless them so much and continue to give them grace and peace every day of their lives. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.

<quoted text>I wish it was easier for ppl to have differences in beliefs without it turning contentious.I have no doubt no matter where someone lands on the issue that people are simply trying to give an honest witness.Obviously people feel strongly about this issue but that doesnt make anyone who believes diff an enemy, it just makes them someone who sees it different. When warned about those that bring a gospel different that what we have been taught imo that means those who preach against the Bible and Christ, not Christians with diff interpretations. I enjoyed my exchange with GW and did so in hopes we'd both come away understanding the other a little better. I think it went well. But I agree w/ u its sad it become nasty as there is no reason it needs to.(T) PEACE
