 Quoting: Goofy for God


OP -- if you're sincere about increasing your faith, then it's a very simple process: You choose God's way, again and again and again and again. This is how you grow your faith.

If you find that your faith has decreased, it's because you have knowingly chosen against God's way. That doesn't mean that you can't reverse the process, but it does mean that you need to get back to basics with God.

Here are some words on faith that might help you:

"Every time you know Godís will and choose to do it, your faith grows. Every time you know Godís will and choose not to do it, your faith shrinks. Itís a very simple dynamic that even a child can understand. People who claim to have 'lost' their faith actually still have a tiny fraction of faith (God never lets our faith balance go to zero), but their choices have put them in a near faithless state. Thatís a sad and painful place to be. They got there by their choices, not because of something God did or didnít do to them."

There are over 2 billion christians on this earth. The verse you quoted is a rhetorical question plus Christ referred to the true believers as a 'little flock'.

Putting 2 and 2 together it is quite clear that there is something seriously wrong with christedom's teachings.

Might just consider the three Witnesses Jesus Gives of those who sought HIM, had expectations of HIM; but were met with REJECTION...


In Matt 7:21-23 Jesus Says that even those who "...did might works (miracles), cast-out demons, and prophesied IN HIS Name" will be turned-away; if they were never Ezekiel 36:26-27 Born-Again.


Not like this matters to you though, Goofy. You just plod on through, posting the you-tube feel good Laodicean tripe, and your own posts which evidence your own alienation.


What will Jesus find? HE did Witness in Matt 24:21-24 that were the days not shortened, no flesh would remain alive... But that those days (these) would be shortened "for the very elect's sake". Might re-visit Matthew ch 24, my friend.


Christ Witnesses that "Many were Called, but few are Chosen!"

Those who failed to manifest their hearts Unto The Father will be expecting all that their rationalized "Faith" allows them to project onto God. Doesn't mean they will not be Rejected.

Father Witnesses in Ezekiel 36:26-27 that when HE Gives us A New Heart Of HIS Flesh, HE Will Enable us to KNOW and DO HIS Will, and live without sin...

Jesus Says in Matt 7:21 that HE Only KNOWS "those who DO The Will Of MY Father"!

Only ONE WAY to DO Father's Will... YE MUST BE Born-Again!


Love God and Trust HIM Fully with every aspect of your life?
Then you take action and Tell HIM So...



Christ Jesus KNOWS what HE is gonna find.
Those who elected/chose to Trust God Fully and were Born-Again and Preserved against all evil living IN Accord With Father and Son, as HE Witnesses in John ch 17. And whoever else there is that endured...

Gonna also find enemies of God.

But you know, God's Will IS Always Perfect!
All will be Restored and Put Right.



Only thing that matters in scope of your life, if you Love Christ and Father, is your surrender of self and Regeneration Through God The Father!

The reason for which you were born; to Come Unto HIM and Live In HIS Accord.


Time to take action.
Not much longer now!


Maranatha!!!

1 And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; 2 Saying, "There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: 3 And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, 'Avenge me of mine adversary'. 4And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, 'Though I fear not God, nor regard man; 5 Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me'".

6 And the Lord said, "Hear what the unjust judge saith. 7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? 8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

= HE IS TELLING US TO BELIEVE THAT GOD WILL AVENGE HIS OWN ELECT SPEEDILY. NOTICE, THE WOMAN WENT TO A JUDGE, NOT GOD.

HE IS ASKING IF PEOPLE WILL STILL "BELIEVE" THIS.

his own elect = which cry day and night unto him (God)

We have to understand true faith not lukewarm!!

 Quoting: Goofy for God

One of the problems with Christendom today, is that people want to grasp truth through knowledge, the intellect.

They delude themselves into thinking that the more they know, doctrine wise, the more 'christian' they are. And that this suffices to be found pleasing in God's eyes.

So they embark themselves on a quest to 'know' truth, by endless study of this and that, to prove that this or that doctrine fits perfect with 'their' theories and line of thought.

Get into endless debates and quarrels about whose interpretation is right, and whose is wrong. And cannot see that they are abstracted from being what they should be, spirit; not a thinking head automaton that gathers facts!

It is not what one knows that determines your spirituality, but what you are!

The bible never advocates or endorses the 'biblical scholar,' like many a wannabe 'know it all' Christian today pride themselves on being.

On the contrary, Jesus thanked his Father, that he kept true spiritual riches from the 'wise' and revealed it unto the simple.

True spirituality can only be grasped by being simple, humble, poor in spirit.

The intellect will always quarrel, even with God.


Also, I will not go into full detail, but will mention briefly...Another problem with christendom today, is that they have thrown God out of his sanctuary, and placed in his stead, an image of jealousy therein.

And the truth is fallen, and a new apostate wonder has risen. A counterfeit with lying eyes that speaks in the name of truth, has trampled the truth to the ground.

Preachers today of all religions worship a pseudo spirit, a doctrine of demons. And this is what people want, a distorted, watered down version of the real truth, that suits their fancy.

People just want to hear smooth things, coast through life with the least amount of friction. They do not want to face up to or work through their inner emptiness and angst. But rather it magically disappear. Thus they turn to their pseudo god.

This is the religion of a baseless dreamer. That likes to talk god, think god; sing their garbage to him, as they drift away into illusory bliss. Deluding themselves into thinking that they are favored in His eyes, that they know him; whereas in real essence, resist with all their being, what true Christianity requires and stands for.

For in the 'new religion' of our time, lets face it , sound doctrine is passe; people want lullabies. Truth has been transformed into a fairy tale.

True Christianity, as presented by Jesus; to venture flesh and blood and be born of spirit, for spirit is life; is not a slogan people want to hear, no one wants to buy into it. Cause real truth is offensive to the worldly way of life and mind. Now, twist it around somewhat, distort its actual meaning; as has been done by the self proclaimed preachers of our time, none of which God has sent, and it will get their attention.

For what people want, is both, heaven and the world. As they still cling to their idols. But it does not work that way; God is not into half truths or compromises; nor is he into lukewarm virtual being, where there is no real substance or depth. He wants the real thing or nothing at all!

I was reading through the thread and when I read the post above I suddenly flashed to those churches who use marketing experts to determine what the people in an area want and then create a "church" designed specifically with those people in mind. Sometimes, that means no Christian symbols at all - they take God out of the "church" so no one is uncomfortable while there.

Cool to see a thread where my brothers and sisters are active. good

Read John 15...a great parable that talks about how Our Father uses suffering to produce fruit in the lives of those who are his...and cause the apostate pretenders to be broken away.
