But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.

26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.

27 And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?

28 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,

29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?

30 Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.

31 In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.

32 But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.

33 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?

34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.

The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
Beautiful my friend

And as no doubt you posted this because it was in Samaria, just like in Luke when Jesus tells the parable of the Good Samaritan.

Samaritans were not Jews. In fact there were a great deal of animosity between the groups and prejudice.And Yet Jesus taught there:

13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.

38 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.

39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.

40 So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.

41 And many more believed because of his own word;

42 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.

JESUS AND HIS TEACHINGS AS THEY RELATE TO THE GENTILES

.
.

TEACH THEM TO OBEY EVERYTHING I HAVE COMMANDED OF YOU

Matthew 28:18-20
Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

TAUGHT THEM HE WAS THEIR SAVIOR

JOHN 4:42 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world.

TAUGHT THAT GENTILES FROM THE EAST AND WEST WOULD REPLACE EVEN SOME FROM ISRAEL AND WOULD BE IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN

Matthew 8
11 I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. 12 But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

PEOPLE FROM ALL NATIONS WILL TRUST IN HIM

Matthew 12:21
In his name the nations will put their hope

USED A GENTILE AS AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT LOVING THY NEIGHBOR IS WHICH HE SAID DO THIS AND YOU SHALL LIVE

Luke 10:28
And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

Have a good day everyone

Hi Rider. Have you ever eat breakfast at Cracker Barrel? Absolutely the best!! We ate there on our to Indiana and I decided to try their pecan waffles and my husband always gets their gravy biscuits, tenderloin and eggs. It was awesome!
I haven't had breakfast, but I stopped in about 1:30 yesterday aft. and they gave me a lunch menu and a breakfast menu, and I did notice many eating a breakfast. So I assumed they must have a great breakfast menu.

I'll stop in when I'm in the area again and be sure to try the breakfast menu.

Have a good day GW....

Hebrews 12:28
Fear, to me, feels like respect for God's commandments as well as fear of the consequences of sin eg; eternity without God. I am fearful of an eternity without God, I am cautious of denying God and falling prey to evil. I am also in awe of God and Jesus and wish to follow The Lord with all my heart. To me, this would include obedience and reverance. Simply, I dream of and wish for Heaven and am willing to trust God.

To be cont...
I appreciate your response. And you are, for the most part, right. BUT...

James 2:19
Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

What separates us from devils?

The devils believe in "God," having been in His very presence. Faith is unnecessary for devils, for they dwell in the spirit-realm with "God." Their belief isn't based on testimonies and what-not. They know "God" exists because they've seen "God," face to face. But, they're not obedient. So, again, what separates us from devils?

The answer to the question as to who is an unbeliever, the answer is the first two.

To believe in "God" and His only-begotten Son isn't enough. As it's written, even the devils believe in "God." But, like I said and as we all know, devils aren't obedient. Therefore, we must do whatever is necessary to separate us from devils. In that, we must be obedient. Many of the most notorious criminals in history believed in "God," but in that, their belief only goes as far as believing "God" exists. We're not to believe "God" exists. We're to know "God" exists. But, we're to believe in Him. We're to believe that all that's prophesied will come to pass. We're to believe that He will fulfill every promise. And along with these, we're to believe that He rewards those that seek Him.

Romans 8:1-2
Point #1<-->A: I think that to be 'IN our Anointed Saviour we must have Faith; In God and Jesus and truly have accepted the Holy Spirit into our hearts.
Obedience and reverence; To try our very best, with love and humility, to obey and respect Our Lord as well as to follow the example and teachings of Jesus Christ. If we sometimes fail in this and have a repentent and humble attitude in our hearts, we are forgiven. As only God truly knows what is in our hearts.
Prioritise; We are to put God before anything else in the world and love Him above all other things.
Point #2<-->A: One that walks 'according to the flesh', to me, is; putting one's own will and desires before those of God, putting anything at all before God, caring more about what people think of an individual than what God thinks, loving anything more than one loves God, giving in to personal will rather than God's will, living in the world rather than in God, refusing to obey and follow Jesus, putting 'self' first, worshiping self or the world, worshiping anything or anyone other than God, disregarding God's Word and denying God and/or Jesus.
To be cont..
Excellent answers. But, I'd like to comment anyway.

To be IN our anointed Savior means, simply, to become one with him. We do this by, first, accepting what he accomplished for us on the cross which, in our generations, should be much easier than it was for them in the first century. We've never had to make the transition, from animal sacrifice to his sacrifice. Secondly, we must learn true love, as he taught it, and become love.

To walk in the flesh means, simply, to break the commandments. As sin is the transgression of the law, righteousness is obedience to the law. The law should be perceived in the same way we perceive the alphabet. As children, we learn the alphabet so that we can read and write. After time, we come to master the alphabet. After this, we should no longer have to refer to the alphabet in order to compose a letter. And even though we no longer have to refer to the alphabet to remind us of a letter, the alphabet, itself, is engraved to memory, always at our disposal. In this, we're no longer under the alphabet, if you will, but above it. And this is what's being explained in Galatians 3.

"But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster."

What Paul was explaining was how the law, without understanding the spiritual significance of it, as taught by our anointed Savior, served only to keep Israel in check and reveal sin to them. But, it couldn't make them righteous. But, why not? Because, the literal application of the letter of the law neglects the spiritual application of the law. One might refrain from committing adultery, as adultery is prohibited by the law, but it didn't eradicate lust. In this, Israel showed respect for one another, to a degree, but not love. They might have refrained from murdering one another, to a degree, but they remained inflamed with unjustified anger and wrath. They applied the literal application of the law, but their thoughts were entirely sinful. Our anointed Savior came and taught an age old lesson. "The thought of foolishness is sin," wrote the Preacher. By teaching us the spiritual significance of the law, our anointed Savior taught us how to engrave the law on our hearts. He taught us how to make the law unnecessary. He taught us how to cleanse our thoughts which, in turn, would cleanse our actions, reactions, and speech. He taught us true love.

Thank you, again, for your response, time, and consideration.

Until next time...

Shalowm.

@BROTHER LEE....Good posts my friend but I did want to add a little bit as far as even the devil believing. IMHO it is more than just obedience that seperates us. Granted it doesnt take faith for the devil to believe in God as he knows God exists. But still the devil has rejected God's ways and does not look to Him for salvation. He is not repentant for the sin he revels in. I guess it would be an interesting question if the devil could ever be saved. I'd imagine if there was ever an example of not being able to be renewed again unto repentance he would be it.And yes ultimately since faith would not be needed and salvation isnt an option making repentance seem unlikely given who he is, it does seem like the only difference is obedience. But I think that is leaving out a very important distinction which is he has rejected God and that is why he is disobedient. I think there are a lot of believers who do not obey regardless of whether they feel they need to but that is not the same as rejecting God.part 1 of 2

BROTHER LEE Part 2 of 2.....and without this distinction than there would be no differencce between believers who need to work on their obedience and the devil. The devil is beyond redemption whereas the believer can always be brought back from his wandering. Now if you were to compare say the devil with a believer who rejected God and returned to the world like a dog to his vomit and never reurned and died in his sins then I would agree the end-result is damnation. But to reject God imo is not simply disobediience but a conscious and deliberate decision to reject God and His commandments and return to a life of sin and disgard his faith. Short of that I see it as the Prodical Son and God will always allow us to return to Him. JMO (T) PEACE

Well rider money does not make for happiness and money can not love you like a Mom can.Milk soup as in tomato soup or potato soup,with dash of onion and bits of ham with big pan of homemade corn bread,crackers or torillias flat bread made on grill with real butter.Have you ever ate grilled salmon patties made with green chile and onions.

I once had a young lady of about fifteen come to visit me city gal.
When I went to collect fresh eggs she said seriouly you really do not eat those things.When she seen me unwrap a nice steak out of white wrapping (butcher paper)she said,That did not come from no store.When she seen me open a jar of fresh made apple jelly she said.How is it you make all this funny stuff that not even good for a dog to eat.Never tasted it to even know.Her attuide was if it did not come from a store she was not going to eat it.She wanted the fast foods she had been raised on most of her life.She would not raise one finger to help herself.Did not even know how to wash dishes.What a experience for me this was.Whinned and complained morning and night.The wonder of it all.Well,all I got to say is I have not gotten sick or died from all the funny stuff that not even good enough to feed to a dog and was not store bought.Amazing is it not.
