Love to all people. As we are created by GOD, we are all given a mission that fulfill what HE wants. Whether we are believers, non-believers, sick, brave, weak, courageous, bold, shy, lost, and other characteristics or gifts. We are all the same. We are need one another. No one can post. If everyone was righteous, there would be no one to minister to. If no one was wicked, we would not know what righteousness is. If there was no one lost, then, there would be no one to minister to. If there was no sick, then there would be no need for healing, and so many more examples of all are needed.
GOD is truly amazing and puts us all here for a reason. May we never forget that is rains, sun shines, and snows on the righteous and the wicked. HE gives us all food to eat, water to drink, and more...... GOD made and uses all of HIS creation. We dont know who HE will choose, and we dont know whose heart HE will change.
Because no one is perfect, everyone will seem like a sinner to someone that is around them when they sin. But that may have just been a slip for a person at that specific time. GOD is the only one that knows the heart. We kill ourselves to judge the heart of an individual by saying, " WE KNOW THEM!! " ( only becaus we see a sin done repetively; like none of us did that and changed later. Or are still doing it).
Yes, we must judge the actions. But we just the actions we see and try to inspire, correct, and hopefully have the person sinning realize and change his or her sin. We try to show them to change through being a living example of faith and prayer for them and ourselves.
Love one another, because we are all sinners and no on can boast.
Please pray the LORD's PRAYER and please read:
2 CORINTHIANS 11:16-33
12 I will go on acting as I do at present, to cut the ground from under the feet of those who are looking for a chance to be proved my equals in grounds for boasting.
13 These people are counterfeit apostles, dishonest workers disguising themselves as apostles of Christ.
14 There is nothing astonishing in this; even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
15 It is nothing extraordinary, then, when his servants disguise themselves as the servants of uprightness. They will come to the end appropriate to what they have done.
16 To repeat: let no one take me for a fool, but if you do, then treat me as a fool, so that I, too, can do a little boasting.
17 I shall not be following the Lord's way in what I say now, but will be speaking out of foolishness in the conviction that I have something to boast about.
18 So many people boast on merely human grounds that I shall too.
19 I know how happy you are to put up with fools, being so wise yourselves;
20 and how you will still go on putting up with a man who enslaves you, eats up all you possess, keeps you under his orders and sets himself above you, or even slaps you in the face.
21 I say it to your shame; perhaps we have been too weak. Whatever bold claims anyone makes -- now I am talking as a fool -- I can make them too.
22 Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they descendants of Abraham? So am I.
23 Are they servants of Christ? I speak in utter folly -- I am too, and more than they are: I have done more work, I have been in prison more, I have been flogged more severely, many times exposed to death.
24 Five times I have been given the thirty-nine lashes by the Jews;
25 three times I have been beaten with sticks; once I was stoned; three times I have been shipwrecked, and once I have been in the open sea for a night and a day;
26 continually travelling, I have been in danger from rivers, in danger from brigands, in danger from my own people and in danger from the gentiles, in danger in the towns and in danger in the open country, in danger at sea and in danger from people masquerading as brothers;
27 I have worked with unsparing energy, for many nights without sleep; I have been hungry and thirsty, and often altogether without food or drink; I have been cold and lacked clothing.
28 And, besides all the external things, there is, day in day out, the pressure on me of my anxiety for all the churches.
29 If anyone weakens, I am weakened as well; and when anyone is made to fall, I burn in agony myself.
30 If I have to boast, I will boast of all the ways in which I am weak.
31 The God and Father of the Lord Jesus -- who is for ever to be blessed -- knows that I am not lying.
32 When I was in Damascus, the governor who was under King Aretas put guards round Damascus city to catch me,
33 and I was let down in a basket through a window in the wall, and that was how I escaped from his hands
LOVE TO ALL,
You know you just violated your “No one can post” statement.
Autocorrect, or mind wandering? :)
1 Samuel 17:50
So David prevailed over the Phillistine with a sling and stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him. But there was no sword in the hand of David.
Therefore David ran and stood over the Philistine, took his sword and drew it out of its sheath and killed him, and cut off his head with it.
I beg to differ with you, a believer has been born again with the Spirit of Christ, while a lost nonbeliever is still lost in his/her sins. The Lord will hear the prayers of a righteous believer, but the only prayer that God will hear from a nonbeliever is the sinners prayer!
1 Samuel 15:3
GOD BLESS US ALL! You can differ if you like. No worries. We are all given different mentalities, heights, eyesight, etc....it’s how we are designed.
But, the differ you beg on talks about something I did not mention.
I did not talk about a sinner praying.
I did not say that a believer does or does not have to be born again in the Spirit. This is obvious. This is in the sciptures, and GOD had me mention this in some of my old posts.
The post here is only saying that we are the same and all given a mission by GOD; whether we know it or not.
As Jesus knew Judas was the devil in the 12, but Judas did not know. Jesus knew the devil’s mission in Judas, which had to be fulfilled. After the mission was over and Judas was left only realizing what was done, then, he had guilt and killed himself. Some have a choice, some do not. But, only GOD knows who those people are. We do not.
But, JESUS had to fulfill HIS mission as Judas had to fulfill his. And there are more examples. This is all GOD had me saying. Both wicked and righteous were needed in that example.
Again, there is nothing wrong with having a difference in opinion, but I did not mention anything you are having a difference in in my post.
Scripture to validate what GOD has me say here:
JESUS knowing Judas mission:
70 Jesus replied to them, ‘Did I not choose the Twelve of you? Yet one of you is a devil.’
71 He meant Judas son of Simon Iscariot, since this was the man, one of the Twelve, who was to betray him.
JESUS knowing the devil in Judas:
26 Jesus answered, ‘It is the one to whom I give the piece of bread that I dip in the dish.’ And when he had dipped the piece of bread he gave it to Judas son of Simon Iscariot.
27 At that instant, after Judas had taken the bread, Satan entered him. Jesus then said, ‘What you are going to do, do quickly.’
28 None of the others at table understood why he said this.
GOD BLESSES takes care of the righteous and wicked; love one another:
44But I say this to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you;
45 so that you may be children of your Father in heaven, for he causes his sun to rise on the bad as well as the good, and sends down rain to fall on the upright and the wicked alike.
10 For, as the rain and the snow come down from the sky and do not return before having watered the earth, fertilising it and making it germinate to provide seed for the sower and food to eat,
11 so it is with the word that goes from my mouth: it will not return to me unfulfilled or before having carried out my good pleasure and having achieved what it was sent to do.
GOD knows and all can use all things to show us who HE is:
1 CORINTHIANS 1:25-31
25 God’s folly is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.
26 Consider, brothers, how you were called; not many of you are wise by human standards, not many influential, not many from noble families.
27 No, God chose those who by human standards are fools to shame the wise; he chose those who by human standards are weak to shame the strong,
28 those who by human standards are common and contemptible — indeed those who count for nothing — to reduce to nothing all those that do count for something,
29 so that no human being might feel boastful before God.
30 It is by him that you exist in Christ Jesus, who for us was made wisdom from God, and saving justice and holiness and redemption.
31 As scripture says: If anyone wants to boast, let him boast of the Lord.
Judas finally left to realize what he did:
1 When morning came, all the chief priests and the elders of the people met in council to bring about the death of Jesus.
2 They had him bound and led him away to hand him over to Pilate, the governor.
3 When he found that Jesus had been condemned, then Judas, his betrayer, was filled with remorse and took the thirty silver pieces back to the chief priests and elders
4 saying, ‘I have sinned. I have betrayed innocent blood.’ They replied, ‘What is that to us? That is your concern.’
5 And flinging down the silver pieces in the sanctuary he made off, and went and hanged himself.
All is needed. All needs to be loved as GOD has ordered.
GOD BLESS US ALL, LOVE OF CHRIST TO ALL,
AMEN! As HE was destined to do.
Since his soul lives in eternity this means he went to hell. Otherwise why would this be stated if he is in Heaven.
If he was not born his act towards hell would never existed. But it did happen.
