You have to trust in Him alone. You have to believe this or your not obeying and He won't send you His Spirit.
I guess you don't understand, Marge, that it is the working of God in your baptism......

Whom does the Church tell us is NOT in Heaven?
One or two names will suffice.
Just in case you are fretting about the last post.....

- since I am part of the "Church", I was allowed to voice that post openly.

If you would like more names, just ask.

I am sorry, but this statement has to be the dumbest that you have ever made.look at what you are saying and hopefully you will see what I see and that is a BIG CONTRADICTION.LOL
this foolishness or yours can stop at any time. you never acted like this for many years until this "newbie "came on board.
I know you have a problem, Preston, with these two little words 'in Christ'......

Where, Preston, is every spiritual blessing located???

Your ignorance here is very high. Just do a search to find how many times the Bible mentions "in Christ".

I'd suggest you study this!

Now you're just playing Protestant and providing your personal interpretation of scripture.
No I am not. Show me where your interpretation that Jesus is "God" is valid?

Using Jesus' own words is the best advantage you have, yet you have none.

So now you use that "attack the messenger" style of refutation.

Why? What are you afraid of if Jesus is not "God"?
- becoming Protestant?
- showing your honesty?
- the supposed "truth" of your religion, that you've beleived for so many years, is a false doctrine?

Open your eyes and ears is was what Jesus asked of us. Not to sit back and let others tell us what to believe, as you have.

I can get that from my mailman. Why would I care about yours?
I didn't ask you to care about me, but you sure are thinking that I matter in some way, if you had to ask.

Believe in all of what Jesus taught, you won't have to worry about others.
(55) Jesus says:

(1)"Whoever does not hate his father and his mother cannot become a disciple of mine.
(2) And whoever does not hate his brothers and his sisters (and) will not take up his cross as I do, will not be worthy of me."

all it did was get you wet. that is it.and I am telling you this for your own good.(God told me to let you know that)
So, Preston, what does 'wash away' mean???

rachats.....

to wash, wash off, wash away, bathe

to wash, wash off, wash away

to wash, bathe (oneself)

to be washed

to wash oneself

What are we suppose to 'wash away,' Preston???

What are we to be free of, Preston???

Why are we commanded to have Elders??? Notice more than one....
Why are we suppose to have respect and go to our Elders???
An Elder/s should be able to teach/preach....which shows spiritual maturity and growth.
We aren't commanded to have "elders" as you use it-people older than ourselves.

Hang on here. I've NEVER said the Apostles were not the foundation. I disagreed with Peter being the ROCK you refer to when it is actually the confession of belief that Jesus is the son of God that is the ROCK.

<quoted text>jESUS said to His diciples,"receive ye the Holy Ghost and He breathed on them'
John 20: 22
22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
now since that has been settled as to WHEN they received the holy Ghost, you now need to know what this "Power on High"was, dont you? when you find out then, tell me.lol
I can read it and tell you easily. but I aint going to tell you, since you cant understand the Things of God.
and I am a [Witness] to you. I wondered WHY God wanted me to tell you in my last post to you.
Conclusion of His earthly ministry, Preston....

After Jesus' resurrection and before His ascension...

Jesus breathed on the apostles to reveal His identity as divine...

This was foreshadowing of the Spirit..... in which they were to receive on the day of Pentecost.

Wasn't it God's breath that brought Adam to life???

How about them dry bones??? lol...

‘I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.'

"Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it,‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’"

Physical breath is essential/necessary to physical life...

The Holy Spirit (God’s breath) is essential/necessary to spiritual life.

Yes, a witness to the Word of God....

But, not a witness as in an apostle...

Right?
No one was having to fend for themselves. God is with Christians. Christians are "in Christ". I have an authority to turn to for instruction (the Bible), and if those churches put in place the governing body that is found in scripture, they had Elders that met the requirements for elders and they had Deacons that met the requirements for Deacons. Those Apostles did their duty. There is no mention in scripture of them passing anything along except the faith they were instructed to teach.

Preston,

You should know me by now....I don't put my business/testimony all over this forum....it is not necessary.....

To witness means to present Christ.

What success is in witnessing???

Sharing......sharing Christ with others.....

But, the sharing is determined by the openness of a person, Preston.

Sure there is .

They ordained others.

Cmon, man-you're putting yourself out as the bible guy here. Why am I constantly pointing things out to you that are in scripture?

Several examples in Acts.

Acts 6:6 to name one.

This is just a sample of what is to come when the appointed time for GOD'S final warnings to mankind arrive - His Wrath against wickedness - see Trumpets 2 & 3, I believe Trumpet 4 will be due to volcanic activity.
