For God's Kingdom

Discussion in 'General Discussions' started by Cosmicwaffle, Feb 12, 2015.

  1. Just wanted to apologize for all of my doctrinal arguements.

    One thing I truely believe is that God uses all kinds of theologies and idealogies to advance his kingdom. God uses the good preachers and the bad, the wise and the ignorant, the sinners and the saints.

    The most important thing above our knowledge is our Love towards our bretheren. Doctrine should be shared politely and with no intention to change or demean anyone else.

    From now on I'll work to give whatever advice or theology I have, but I won't try to convince anyone it is right unless they have questions concerning it. That is the Holy Spirit's job.

    That's all I wanted to say.

  2. Brother in Christ, please let me share something with you. How can we know for sure what we believe is really from God? The Lord gives Wisdom, and out of his mouth comes knowledge and understanding. What we all want is "Wisdom" because Wisdom is the principle thing. It is the mostly valuable thing God can give to any man, and there is nothing you can desire that can be compared to her. Wisdom is understanding, and understanding is Wisdom. This Wisdom can only be received by God himself to you. You can not receive it from another man.
    Jesus tells us how we can know for sure if we really have it.

    Luke 7:34 The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, 'Look at him! A glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!'
    Luke 7:35 Yet wisdom is justified by all her children."

    It does not matter what other people say about you. What matters is do you have Wisdom's children. We are not looking for the praise that comes from man, but only the praise that comes from God. What are Wisdom's children?

    Jas 3:17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.

    These are "Wisdom's children". The most important of all her children is this, which is why it is first. The Wisdom from above is "FIRST PURE"
    What is pure? Pure meaning it will never ever compromise the Word of God no matter even if its to your own hurt!!! Even if people will criticize you for it, and or separate from you. Jesus when speaking to the religious people of his day when he said, "you are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do..." Jesus was not being mean to these people, he was simply telling them the truth, even if it would cause problems for him later.
    Notice all these other qualities that those who really have the Wisdom from above have. If you really have the true Wisdom from above, then all of her children will testify to your heart that you have it right!!! If you do not have the Wisdom from above then these other kinds of qualities will manifest them self to you.

    James 3:14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth.
    James 3:15 This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.
    James 3:16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.

    There will always be peace in your heart when you truly have the Wisdom from above.
  3. Thanks for sharing.

    I definitely don't have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in my heart, but I do realize I may have stepped on some toes. This is just an apology, and I'm going to try to do things differently from now on.
