This is not a group for vain words, scorners, mockers, those who want a platform to promote false doctrine, nor those who dwell in: etymology, fables, Greek mythologies, piousness, high mindedness, debaters of Jesus Christ and religious "practices" nor genealogies for the purpose of teaching separatism and division.

Man attempts to rationalize God causes great confusion. The written word has many answers; however, we may never fully understand God's characteristics because it is beyond our finite mind whereas God is an infinite God who is capable of ALL things. Man cannot apply logic to God's workings which are infinite and beyond our reasoning.

The written word says, "For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad." (Rev 22:18)

This says that some things are hidden - kept secret until SHOWN (manifested). As things happen - things are revealed. That's why we must WATCH and be prepared with the KNOWLEDGE and UNDERSTANDING of what's in the written word.

Jesus told the disciples, that He would say no more because their minds just could not comprehend it all but that He'd send the Holy Spirit to teach and bring things back to remembrance. Man tries so hard to make sense of it all using his reasoning that when someone comes along and makes things appeal to his mind, he stops seeking the Kingdom of God and forgets the truth he'd learned.

The deception begins when man attempts to define the nature and character of God as less than whom He is, yet, raises the level of "man" to a position which he is not entitled. A man's wrong view of God leads to a man's wrong view of Jesus Christ, a wrong view of the Holy Spirit and eventually to a wrong view of the elements of salvation.

We are told to seek the Kingdom of God. It's time to grow stronger in the Word. Study with the Body of Christ here at "Bible Study".

THE VALUE OF MAN a parable


As the students walked with their teacher through the park, the teacher stopped and faced the students. He lifted a crisp new $100 bill in the air and asked, "Who would like this bill?" Everyone's hand flew in the air.

Then the teacher crumbled the bill and threw it to the ground. He then asked, "Who would like this bill?". Still, all hands went into the air.

Next, the teacher stepped on the bill and ground it into the dirt with his shoe. He then asked, "Anybody still want this bill?". Once again, everyone's hand went into the air.

Finally, he picked up the dirty and crumbled $100 bill, ripped it in half and tossed it to the side. "Now who wants it?" All the students eagerly raised their hands.

The teacher responded, "Let this be a lesson to you. In life, people, situations, and the choices you make, may cause you to fall to the ground. Many people will step on you to lift themselves up. Some may even grind you into the dirt, try to rip apart your soul and toss you to the side. But this day remember that just as this $100 bill never lost its value when I did the same to it... Neither will any person, situation or bad choice you make cause your value to decrease.

It's not by who you are but by whose you are. Before the foundation of this world you were conceived and no force on Earth can ever take that away. "

The students all nodded in agreement as they proceeded on their way.

Amen! May Someone be blessed ~ Tatia

GOD'S TIME VS OUR TIME



omnipotence = God's unlimited authority and influence

foreknowledge = God's knowledge of occurrences before they occur = because he ordained it to be

predestinate = God ordained - devised - decreed before hand to be for His specific purpose.

God's foreknows because He predestinated life for His purpose and uses his omnipotence to His pleasure in seeing His plan manifested (come to be).

Isaiah 46:10 Declaring the end FROM the beginning, and from ancient times the things that ARE NOT YET DONE, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: 11 yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.

God IS Alpha and Omega - The Beginning and End

Before we were created, we all were chosen - to be here and part of God's plan to be a WITNESS of God, to KNOW him, and to have salvation. God gave us ALL the mind of unbelief for His purpose to have mercy on us ALL and to be witnesses and servants chosen to know and believe and understand that God is the ONLY God - the First and Last Rom 11:32./ Isaiah 43:10

However, not all will accept salvation - and God knows who will and won't choose Him. The fact that God tells us he has patience is a link from Him to "our time". The names of the elect are written in the Book of Life and when the last of the elect are sealed, the end of "our time" has arrived.

I can also use the analogy of an Olympic competition. Before even the opening ceremony begins and we, the participants enter the stadium (Earth), God is already at the awards ceremony with engraved medals having our names on them (New Heaven).

Time - the timekeepers, the Sun, Moon, and stars - was created for man, not for God. So though time must unfold for man, God sees these things as completed. He is outside of time though he still intervenes in our time - 2 totally different time modalities. God is AWESOME! ~ Tatia
