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!
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,
