Metanoia: What does the word "repentance" really mean in the Bible?
Great video that sums it up! It is a change of mind and not just dwelling i sorrow and regret over the past.



Everyone should learn the true meaning of what repentance means in the Scriptures because it makes the Bible and the faith truly come alive!

This "above the mind", does it mean to think beyond our fleshly human mind and think with a higher mind that comes from the Holy Spirit?

It means to give your life more divine value than to become an absolute abomination

It means to not only change your actions, but your soul within

Say for example cheating on your wife but than stopping, seeing your mistress, and than quitting her, but doing nothing to change what you are inside leaves you still guilty of the sin

You're still gonna be thrown into purgatory for being garbage

You won't be granted the garden of life unless it's earned no matter who you are.

And this is the exact opposite of the gospel of Jesus Christ.


You cannot earn salvation. Scripture is quite clear.

Ephesians 2:6-9 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.



If in your self deluded grandeur you think you are earning your way you will split hell wide open. Jesus is not sharing His glory with anyone, and especially not you who think His sacrifice just wasn't quite good enough that you have to put your own little putrid work on it.

Re: Metanoia: What does the word "repentance" really mean in the Bible?
A ritual to remind yourself you live in a sinful version of the earth. The perfected version sees all the flaws fixed.
The gathering sequence is pretty specific so the pattern can be pointed out.
Ge:3:15 has a two-part prophecy that is completely fulfilled within a single hour of the Re:20:4 resurrected joining the few people the 7 vials did not kill.
In the perfected earth you have the same ritual only it is not a blood sacrifice so it is 'giving thanks' rather than 'Oops' offering.
The people allowed to repent all are included in the population that is alive for all of the 1,000 year reign. They are Shepherds later on while the people not alive will become their flock that they teach out life in a sinless earth. The 1,000 years was their training period. Christ and the 24 Elders from Re:4 are their Shepherds so they all survive the fire that sends all sinful immortals to the fiery lake.

Lu:18:10-14:
Two men went up into the temple to pray;
the one a Pharisee,
and the other a publican.
The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself,
God,
I thank thee,
that I am not as other men are,
extortioners,
unjust,
adulterers,
or even as this publican.
I fast twice in the week,
I give tithes of all that I possess.
And the publican,
standing afar off,
would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven,
but smote upon his breast,
saying,
God be merciful to me a sinner.
I tell you,
this man went down to his house justified rather than the other:
for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased;
and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

This is the truth right here.

Romans 4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

Our FAITH is counted for righteousness, because all of our righteousnesses are as filthy rags before God.

It's weird seeing a saved person on here.

Change your ways.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78007690

I'm going with God has to harden some hearts like He did to Pharaoh so he would not surrender before the appointed time.
Take this example, with the two witnesses doing things Moses would envy for a period of 3 1/2 years from Jerusalem and Jesus still has to kill 2/3 of all people on the planet as they are 'sinners'. 33% is a failing grade, their actual mission is to keep Satan from installing a false throne in Jerusalem until the few days they are in the grave. The false throne is the first victims of Satan's Babylon being melted by fire.
The coals from heaven prophecy that has o unfold before any trumps sounds would be the same event that Saul experienced. For 1/3 of the people they become as holy as Paul was and they survive the 7 vials so they are the very few that enter the Kingdom of God without needing to be resurrected.

 Quoting: Wayfaring Stranger


What on earth are you talking about? God hardened Pharaoh's heart because he hardened his heart first. The same thing happens now.

Romans 1

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

John 12

37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,
40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.

2 Thess. 2
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

But anyone who wants to be saved can be saved. The choice is up to man, the free gift is offered to all freely.

Rev 22:17
And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

Calvinism teaches God pre-chooses who is saved and who is damned without any choice on man's part - That is a wicked false doctrine.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78158792


Well, the reason you think that way is because the hundreds of millions of Christians who are not "selfish, arrogant, greedy, self-righteous assholes" are typically not bothering you and fly under the radar as just "good people." Unbeknownst to you, they're "good people" because they're being obedient to Christ AND humble about it.
Everything God said is coming to pass. What is left to doubt that Jesus is the Lord?

A change of mind. Christ began His ministry by saying, Repent and believe the gospel. Free your mind and your ass will follow.
Doesn't anybody feel that all these killers should be killed, and all these healers should be healed, so all of these beggars can be filled...
