Re: Paul's Epistles are not THUS SAITH THE LORD Bible verses
You guys are missing a very simple point!

Wait for it .....

When Jesus spoke, the Church was not born. Not until Pentecost. So Jesus was addressing.....the J o o sz!

Paul's ministry was to...... The gentiles and the body of Christ. The church.

Get it?

The law was not dead until after he rose so the Juuuze were still under the Law!

AND Paul (Saul) did meet Jesus on the road to Damascus. Jesus made Paul's ministry the gentiles not the Juuuze!
 Quoting: Neenerner


I don't know how you figure that the "church" wasn't born when Jesus was speaking. It's pretty easy to surmise that many of those who listened to and followed Jesus were the first ones to be baptised by the Apostles.

Jesus didn't turn away ANYONE.

The "crumbs" / pagan woman.
The centurion.
The Samaritans.

And Paul?

The very first folks he preached to were Hebrews.
AND many of the places he went to had Hebrew synagogues.
 Quoting: TheLordsServant




This scripture demonstrates 2 things
1 there were two gospels. One before Christ rose.
2 the church was born on Pentecost.

Acts 19 4-6

He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.

3 And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John's baptism.

4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.


5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.
 Quoting: Neenerner



ONE Gospel...

"The Church" was "born" when each Apostle followed The Lord.


ONE BASIS For Inclusion In Christ's Church.... Matt 16:13-20:
13. When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, "Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?"

14. And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
15. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?


16. And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.


**** 17. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.***


18. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.




The "Rock"/Foundation for Inclusion is:::: KNOWING WHO Jesus IS!


KNOWING WHO Jesus IS is your Invitation To The King's Wedding Feast For HIS Son.... Matt 22:1-14
1. And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,
2. The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,


3. And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
4. Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
5. But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
6. And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.
7. But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.


8. Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
9. Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
10. So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.


11. And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
12. And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.

13. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


14. For many are called, but few are chosen.




If you are not Ezekiel 36:26-27 Born-Again; YOU HAVE NO Relationship With God!


Up to YOU To Decide That You Love & Trust The Father Totally and Completely and Give Unto HIM YOUR Life!

When we Choose-Elect to surrender our self-will and accept Father's Will for us, AND Take Action Telling HIM So; We Are Born-Again...
26. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
27. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

This IS my witness: What I Have Seen And Was Given To KNOW. I gave my life fully and completely Unto The Father and Received The Gifts HE Witnesses Of in Ezekiel 36:26-27.


St Paul witnesses that anyone who would Teach/Preach/Minister "Ought First BE A Partaker Of The Fruits" 2nd Timothy 2:6

Paul also witnesses about YOU HEBREWS 12 Bastards:
5. And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:
6. For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

7. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

8. But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

9. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
10. For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.

"Partakers Of HIS Holiness", "Partakers Of The Fruits"....

Paul was "broken" by God when he was knocked from his horse and blinded.

Brokenness is a condition of the heart which Enables us to decide that ONLY God Matters (If Father Put KNOWLEDGE Of WHO Christ Jesus IS Upon Your Heart).


Can't Recognize Paul as your Born-Again Brother? Then you aren't...

We either Accept Father's Chastisement and Guidance In Coming Unto HIM or we never do... Being Born-Again, we Praise HIM for all HIS Chastisement, Mercies, and Grace; for these And Christ Jesus' Sacrifice on calvary; Enabled Us To Come Unto HIM!

"...No man Cometh Unto The Father but BY ME!" John 14:6


If you would be HIS; NOW Is The Time To Tell HIM So!


Maranatha!!!
 Quoting: Lester


The text j shared speaks for itself. You are obviously welcome to budge as you wish.

Having said that, in your opinion in less than 10,000,000,000 words why were they baptized a 2nd time?

Are you saying the baptism of repentance which is what Jesus taught is the same as the baptism of grace?

I gotta here this one!

Re: Paul's Epistles are not THUS SAITH THE LORD Bible verses
Jesus Christ is omniscient (He knows everything) yet you come along and strongly imply that somehow Paul fooled Him? The real reason is that you have an agenda, and it sure ain't Christian.

Isa 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
 Quoting: Judethz


Really?

Jesus doesn't know when He is going to return.

And at some point, the Father gave Jesus "The Revelation" (Rev 1:1), so Jesus didn't know that PRIOR to receiving it.

hf
 Quoting: TheLordsServant


Words are so important......the more we nail them into the fabric of existence.......so often they dissolve as so much vapor.......

It is not written that The/Our Father gave Jesus "The Rev."....

God gave The Revelation of Jesus Christ .....TO JESUS CHRIST....the 1st begotten .....of many.....

this seems unimportant unless one desires the more offered to all...

God/The Elohim is the CREATOR.....recorded in Gen. 1 .....without our individual creation GIFT we ALL would receive NOTHING......

no gift of natural birth.......nothing exists

BIRTH from the creator/God/the Elohim/US allows for further growth for SEEKERS.

Rev 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

Rev 1:2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.

Rev. 1:1

God/creator gives the REV. to Jesus that he is the Christ....

He/Jesus showed his Servants/disciples........

He/Jesus sent by his ANGEL/messenger.....

Angel/messenger/message signified to JOHN......

1:2

John bares record of THE WORD......

and the testimony of Jesus Christ.....

and all things he/John saw.......


The Revelation of Jesus Christ IS NOT a story of natural event that change the SPIRIT of men......

it is a spiritual story of the awakening inside of a man that the reveals the 'truth of the way of life' which is

The Revelation of (WHO) Jesus Christ is.....

this same revelation that Jesus had is an opportunity for every man......as we GOT IT FROM GOD ..... since before the foundation.....of our world......OUR NATURAL BIRTH.....

we must become aware of the gift that resides 'within' all men....

not sure if you suggested for me or not ....but

Moses formed the 'body' in the desert from the males/females coming out of Egypt.

The body remained dead walking for the next 1500 years....as man walking alone and as dead without help met....

Jesus breathed life into the body that was dead and alone.....and the body went into "DEEP SLEEP" for the next 2000 years "2 days"....

NOW on the 3rd day the WOMAN/help met is 'FORMED' ..... the marriage/joining is at hand .....NOW

we are on the EVE/dusk/dawn of great birthings......

and

the CHILD is being BORN.......in every way ....MAN

Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.



Romans 11:1

I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.


Leviticus 11:29-31

These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind, And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole. These are unclean to you among all that creep: whosoever doth touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even.


1 Corinthians 9:19-22

For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.

And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;

To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.

To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.

And when Saul was come to Jerusalem, he assayed to join himself to the disciples: but they were all afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple.

25This man had been instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in spirit, he spoke and taught accurately the things concerning Jesus, although he knew only the baptism of John.

 Quoting: rod777


No matter what verses you folks put up, you STILL cannot get away from the fact that repentance is NEEDED BEFORE Grace is given.

Jesus' very first teaching was to "repent".

Matthew 4:17 (KJV) From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Mark 1:15 And saying*, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe* the gospel.

The message of Jesus' ministry was so important that the Father had John the Baptist "rattle their cages" ahead of time to "pave the way" for Jesus' ministry.

The key teaching by John the Baptist?

Matthew 3:2 and saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!"

Jesus ALSO said....

Luke 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

The words "repent" & "repentance" were used 49 times in the New Testament....by EVERY single writer.

[link to www.blueletterbible.org (secure)]

[link to www.blueletterbible.org (secure)]

The word "repented" is used 15 times in the NT

[link to www.blueletterbible.org (secure)]

John the Baptist's main teaching? Repent.
Jesus very FIRST teaching? Repent.
Peter's answer to the folks outside the upper room on the day of Pentecost? Repent and be baptised.

Finally, Jesus admonished folks who failed to repent.

Matthew 11 & Luke 10....

Acts 12 12-14

12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

13 For by one Spirit
are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

The Spirit did not come until Pentecost. The Church body of Christ had to be born Pentecost or afterwards.
 Quoting: Neenerner


I AGREE WITH THAT...The point is, there was the baptism of john (basically repentance) and the baptism of The Spirit, where God immerses you into Christ...
 Quoting: rod777


No matter what verses you folks put up, you STILL cannot get away from the fact that repentance is NEEDED BEFORE Grace is given.

Jesus' very first teaching was to "repent".

Matthew 4:17 (KJV) From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Mark 1:15 And saying*, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe* the gospel.

The message of Jesus' ministry was so important that the Father had John the Baptist "rattle their cages" ahead of time to "pave the way" for Jesus' ministry.

The key teaching by John the Baptist?

Matthew 3:2 and saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!"

Jesus ALSO said....

Luke 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

The words "repent" & "repentance" were used 49 times in the New Testament....by EVERY single writer.

[link to www.blueletterbible.org (secure)]

The word "repented" is used 15 times in the NT

[link to www.blueletterbible.org (secure)]

John the Baptist's main teaching? Repent.
Jesus very FIRST teaching? Repent.
Peter's answer to the folks outside the upper room on the day of Pentecost? Repent and be baptised.

Finally, Jesus admonished folks who failed to repent.

Matthew 11 & Luke 10....

You have to post up a quote from a human to expalin your understanding of repentance?

I can go that route too.

When we, as humans, have harmed someone else, HOW do we receive forgiveness? By merely stopping the harmful acts / words?

Nope. We usually have to ask, with a contrite heart, FOR forgiveness.

Would you not agree that God and His Son MADE US in their image? If so then, how about "as above, so below"?

Re: Paul's Epistles are not THUS SAITH THE LORD Bible verses
Paul Witnesses THIS in Hebrews 12:5-10.

By my witness, THIS is WHY you find endless debate over matters you KNOW Nothing about... Why Do The Heathen Rage? Might as well restate as "Why do the Laodicean Rage?"

5. And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:
6. For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

7. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
8. But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.


9. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
10. For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.


No Born-Agains, No Partakers Of HIS Holiness on this thread...

Why? Because the Bible-jocks on this thread are unwilling (or unable?) to Seek With Their Heart... Thus remaining "workers of iniquity" (meaning followers of self-will), you Seek ONLY Rationalization For Your Conjecture, Including Your Imaginations About God...

Christ Witnesses about you all in Matt 13:11-15. It's WHY HE Doesn't Witness Plainly but used parables...
10. And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

11. He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
12. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.

13. Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

14. And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
15. For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

You aren't Born-Again because you can't HEAR/SEE The Gospel through your heart! You have NO Heart For God! You SEEK with your intellect... Persons like you, Jesus Says, HE Don't Want To Understand HIS Witness: "Lest they be converted and I should (have) to Heal Them"...


You're Hebrews 12 Bastards...
You Don't LOVE God, although you Claim To...
Your "love" For HIM is just lip service.
All you care about is Self.

You expect God to conform to your beliefs and rationalizations. "Workers of Iniquity"...

All the effort and time spent in your life to rationalize why God is WHO and What You Want HIM To BE...

Pathetically, you're unwilling to just Let God BE God... You're unwilling to Trust HIM
You're "belief" is limited by your minimal Acceptance

Your life is evidently some kind of game, like a locked room mystery. You think you can figure it all out, and once you do EVERYTHING About God will just Fall Into Place, because: Oh! You So Smart!

Well you're fucking Not!

What You ARE Doing is playing god!
It's the carnal-heart at its Best!
(Nothing "good" about being carnal-hearted.)

Bastards, not Sons...
Of course, as workers of iniquity, you haven't the self-honesty to admit you put yourself and your intellect above God... Sorry, but that's what the carnal-heart does and it's WHY We MUST BE Born-Again!

Ol' Lester.... accuser and enemy to "good" Christians everywhere! So your carnality rationalizes.


Unwilliing to accept Chastisement and Guidance From The Father; no reason for you to consider what I witness to you here.... Unable to SEE/HEAR The Gospel, Unwilling to Trust God Completely and Fully BECAUSE YOU Put Self Above God!

The Reality IS: Father Chastises and Corrects ALL Of Us who became Partakers Of HIS Holiness! Yet, YOU Cannot Accept HIM On HIS Terms..

If you read Scripture to rationalize your selfishness and self-will, what you find is what you look for...

Without a heart which is OPEN To God and able to Acknowledge ALL HE IS and All You Are Not, you are simply living a dysfunctional life of denial.


Pretty Simple, Really! Trusting God...
Just have to admit that you're NOT HIM! And Accept that HIS Omnipotence and Almighty-ness is not your province either...

Were you God, EVERYTHING About You Would BE PERFECT! Of course, it's not. You Don't even Understand The Bible...

God IS Everlasting unlike you who must face death...
Dying is not an attribute of Being Perfect...


Sadly, so many will do as you all are doing here, spend their time arguing about God, and what you expect of HIM rather than Acting On Their Belief and Faith to Come Unto The Father and Be Born-Again.


Bastards, not Sons....
"Depart from ME, you who work iniquity: I KNOW YOU NOT!"

 Quoting: TheLordsServant


Accepting Christ means NOTHING!

HE IS Redeemer and Saviour whether you accept HIM or not...

We are only "changed" when Father Gives Us "A New Heart Of HIS Flesh". This happens when we Come Unto The Father and ARE Born-Again.

26. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
27. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
Ezekiel 36:26-27 is The Concise Witness of The Born-Again Life!


If "accepting Jesus" mattered, and it doesn't; WHY Would Christ REJECT those who "Did Mighty Works, Cast-Out demons, and Prophesied In HIS Name" from Matt 7:21-23???
Everything They DID, they did IN HIS Name!
Does someone who hasn't accepted Christ do anything In HIS Name?


21. "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven."

22. Many will say to me in that day, "Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?"

23. And then will I profess unto them, "I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."


Might just observe that when we are Ezekiel 36:26-27 Born-Again, Father Enables us to DO HIS Will... This ties to Matt 7:21, Jesus' ONLY KNOWING Those WHO DO THE WILL OF MY FATHER...

For all your belief and trust in "acceptance" Of Jesus, you are unable to Accept or Trust God!


Bastards, not Sons...

Unwilling to let God BE God...
Unwilling to Trust HIM Fully...


Yet, you (all) spread your self-willed conjecture.
The poison of Laodicea...
