    To Ronnette

    I think you got Rinnetts reply. Some days my eyesight is challenged. I'm way over-due to get my vision checked. I apologize. This won't happen again I hope.

    I'll go back in the history pages and find the comment I wrote to you. Thanks for letting me know.

    StreetPreacher:

    Why did you respond to memorized Joel 2? Do you know something I did not know from my inquiry?

    I am very curious.

    I truly believe if we seek the Lord with all of our hearts and strength, we will have favor with the King of Kings. I saw that in the Book of Esther.

    It was her destiny to save her people from execution.

    She prepared to intercede by preparation for the Kings presence. That tells me it's not a matter of "works". It's about love for what the Lord loves. She didn't ask for anything for herself. She asked on behalf of.

    Women are not lesser than a man. God formed Eve from one of Adams ribs. [in Texas we get excited about ribs]

    She wasn't over Adams head, nor from his feet. She came from his side; near his heart. Just remember that, because it gets tested frequently. Women are more likely to praise and worship; and pray for favor over everyone in the house, community, and church.

    If they don't do that; as it says in the Book of Acts: the ship breaks up and everyone grabs broken pieces of ship, to get to the shore alive on.

    One of my favorite Paul stories: he's burning the wood to dry out and a deadly snake comes out of the fire and bites Paul. The other sailors eyes bug out waiting for Paul to fall over dead. He throws more wood on the fire.

    God broke apart the ship, provided broken pieces (of our lives) to get to shore with. He made the wet wood to burn. And thena miracle!

    It reminds me, of me. My life was a pile of lumber until the Lord put it back together. Not the same, but better.

    Be encouraged because we are in the Will of God.

    The Obedience of Prayers:

    Thank you my fellow believer. I have looked them up. My prayers include Israel visit in the near future. I may attend one of his concert.

    Enjoy the kingdom of God.

    Romans 14:17

    For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
  • The Obedience of Prayers - In Reply on Ezekiel 33:12 - 2 years ago
    I am grateful that you are chosen to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

    I heard this man's testimony: Joshua Aaron, who is a Messianic Jew. He was living in the USA, but moved to Israel. He learned to speak Hebrew. Has wife and children. His joy as a Jewish Christian is pure excitement. I hope you'll listen to his praise songs on YouTube.

    Keep on praying. Blessings and Joy

    You might find Nelson Walters programs thought provoking, as I do. Can't wait to search it out for myself.

    Our prayers can absolutely help other Jews be freed from rituals, to turn to their Messiah and be forgiven.

    Reading the entire Bible, I just can't imagine the magnitude of the righteousness of men over God where we have given superfluous examples of how the victory belongs to Israel if and when they trust, believe and have faith with the true King Jesus Christ. No matter how many time I read the Bible the true wisdom, knowledge and understanding only comes to men when you accept the most gracious gift God has given to the entire world-The precious blood of Jesus Christ, the only begotten of God.

    The POWER is in CHRIST JESUS BLOOD. I cannot express that enough.

    Now the power of men surely have not been successful for 2,000 years. They may think they were successful but we know that life on earth is too short for what they may say an earthly success and richness; but it is an awful long time to be dead burning in Hell.

    I pray for Israel to be saved, but it is written until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in. I always think about this mystery:

    Romans 11:25

    For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

    Just recently more focus on praying for all living saints. Hoping we all fast at a certain time to pray for the fullness of the Gentiles and safety of Israel.

    Peace to all from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Streetpreacher:

    I had the most amazing experience while reading your response. Actually after I have posted the question, God gave me an answer. I was studying the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Heaven.

    What an amazing revelation to feel our King Jesus Christ's powerful WORD.

    I have been in the Kingdom of God for quite sometime now. During my studies, I know I still need to know more.

    My background with the help of God Almighty gave me more insights to enhance the God given gift of discernment.

    Your response somehow unexplainable God given timing. I am a bit unsure about what God is telling me, but I will do as you suggested, for I felt the presence of God with your response.

    We do have a living God; and walking in His Spirit I truly wanted to serve The Almighty God for the rest of my life.

    Thank you and my prayers are for all saints. I love them all.

    Grace and peace from God our Father in Heaven and our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Memorize Joel 2 also.

    Counsel: if you discern Gods call on your life, you must get into scripture like life depends upon it.

    Now, God ANOINTED a shepherd boy (David). Read that. David heard the Philistines taunt against Saul and the men of Israel.

    He strode out to the battlefield (a teen-aged boy) with only a sling and 5 stones. Goliath (a giant) died of his brain being caved-in by one stone. David took his head, as was the manner of challenges.

    We cannot confirm this or that. If God calls you to Ministry, he will anoint His Word and the messenger. You, must ask the HOLY SPIRIT to teach you.

    People in a Bible Comment room cannot do that or replace the Holy Spirits ministry as Teacher. It's your job to faithfully get alone with HIM, and ask Him, to teach you.

    Interestingly, after killing Goliath, David went to be Sauls music minister at court. David's life is a study in advances to being Gods anointed King; falling into sin, and repenting of it, and living out the rest of his life.

    Isaiah 61 and Luke 4:18. It is the anointing that sets people free.
  • Ronnette on Ezekiel 33:12 - 2 years ago
    Who is the Son of man who was made the "watchman"? Have you noticed that Ezekiel 3:17-19 is repeated in Ezekiel 33:7-9?

    The Son of man is Jesus Christ based on Matthew 26:24, Mark 14:21, and John 12:34.

    Just what to confirm my understanding on these verses.

    Thank you.

    First of all, the HOLT SPIRST will not save a person; his job is to bring you to Christl, to provide comfort, and teach. Only Christ can save you because Christ died on the Cross as our perfect sacrifice for my sins and your sins. John 3: 16 sums it up in a nutshell. Not only did Christ die on the cross, but He arose from the grave or tomb three days later to prove that He was GOD in the flesh. Do you have Christ in you and are you in Christ? Not is the HOLY SPIRT in you and are you in the HOLY SPIRT.
  • LABAN D. NEEDHAM on Ezekiel 33 - 2 years ago
    Our great nation is in deep trouble and GOD will judge it in the not to distant future. We have accepted good for evil and evil for good. Our leaders seem to be corrupt, and that includes both political parties . The people believe a lie such as "Climate Change" is caused by man. This denies GOD as the controller of all things, but sets a few elect men as god. What can we do? We MUST do what GOD told Ezekeial to do in chapter 33 of Ezekial. Get the WORD of GOD out to the people of this land. Yes, they will sit and listen to what you say, but will they really believe. They will say, "He is singing the same old song!"
  • Roman - In Reply on Ezekiel 33 - 2 years ago
    Cynthia,

    To be born again is to die your appointed death, then be resurrected incorruptible, like Christ.

    Christ died on the cross and was resurrected (born again) as an example for us.

    People that claim to be "born again" are mere born again sinners.
  • Cynthia on Ezekiel 33 - 2 years ago
    Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth."



    I find it very Interesting how the FATHER addresses

    "The righteousness of the righteous"

    I think today we call these people "the self rightious" these people hear the WORD but don't do what the WORD tells them.

    And what does the WORD say to us anyway?

    HE, the"WORD" said "YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN"

    We must all experience the new birth , that of the HOLY GHOST coming to dwell within us only then can we rest in HIS righeiousness and live , otherwise we are fools if we believe we can be saved by simply believing,

    What I'm trying to say is many people are fooling themselves thinking they are saved when they aren't. If I were one of these people and I knew what I know now, I'd be on my face before the LORD and I wouldn't get up until I saw HIM face to face and heard HIM call me by my name and I received the gift of the HOLY GHOST .

    Thank You Adam and Gigi.
  • GiGi - In Reply on Ezekiel 33 - 2 years ago
    Dgjot,

    You tried with your neighbor. She is responsible. If she was raised Catholic she knows of Jesus and His work on the cross for us. She knows that she needs salvation from sin. Even tough she is not "practicing" does not mean she does not have a Christian belief in Jesus. That may be why she said, "I am Catholic". My suggestion is to try to have pleasant conversation with her and tell of what God is doing in your life: answered prayer, guidance from Scripture, overcoming a particular sinful habit, gratitude to God for providing your daily bread. These things can sow her the desirability to seek a closer relationship with God and open doors for other discussions. Whenever I am talking with Catholics and a topic comes up on religion, I try to steer the conversation to the gospel message as having been effective in my life and that I would never go back to not believing in Jesus, but instead, I want to know Him more and learn from His Spirit through the Scriptures. A Catholic really cannot argue with that, and hearing it plants seeds in their heart to begin to yearn for Jesus more than they presently do and step out of their complacency.
  • Adam - In Reply on Ezekiel 33 - 2 years ago
    Hi Dgjot,

    Even though it seems hard to believe, according to stats only 50% of the world uses the internet and only 65% have access to it. I live in the US and people assume everyone is connected here, but that's not the case even here. Many rural areas where you can't even get a cell signal either. Many who didn't grow up with it aren't interested in using it. There's even groups in the US that intentionally live without power and without TV. And this is much more so in other countries. Consider North Sentinel Island, where there are people living there who have zero contact with the outside world.

    If you've heard of Ray Comfort he does lots of street evangelism in urban areas like Los Angeles and even there, a % of the people don't know who Jesus is. Sounds hard to believe, but you may have to see it for yourself.

    So, with these considerations, I do not believe everyone knows who Jesus is. I would say even of those who have heard something about Him, I would estimate that most may have distorted or inaccurate info.

    I have heard missionaries say that it is far easier to tell people about Jesus in other regions, like in Africa, in comparison to developed nations that have misinformation already planted. But that doesn't mean we should give up. I personally think showing you care is step one, and if they are interested in you a door might open where they are willing to hear your views. Also, people in need seem to be more open as well, such as homeless. They need God where as others who are more established often assume they don't. There is a lot of information online with memes and it seems like memes, video clips, music, books, and arts seem to be the most influential in my opinion. So, I think spreading the gospel is still a valid pursuit and may take different forms depending on the audience.

    Hello Paula,

    Please don't be angry with me. Your statement of "If you do not warn the wicked you will not be save nor the wicked doer". What do you mean by this? That if we do not evangelize or "warn" then we will not be saved?? We are saved by the Grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ. His free gift to us. After which we are bought with a price and are His forever. He will guide our paths. Not by how much we can do to "warn" people, of what I also don't know what you mean, of something. Acknowledging your faith to our Father and Jesus Christ to others is always good. Along with using the Word, Holy Scriptures, or Gospels to lead people to the truth. Of coarse if they will even hear you is the question.

    Please don't anyone take this the wrong way that I have anything against evangelizing. They are my brothers doing what our Father has them doing.

    Just you stating that "if you do not warn the wicked you will not be saved" is not correct. In my eyes anyway. Jesus Christ states just prophesying, or casting out demons, or many wonderful works may not deem you saved.

    Matthew 7:22-23: 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?

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

    God Bless.
  • Paula roberts on Ezekiel 33 - 3 years ago
    It make sense that jesus is coming now with all this murder that the world is seeing and going to see . If you do not warn the wickeed you will not be save nor the wicked doer but if you warn them and they heed not you shall be saved while they will not ,

    31 And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as [my people,] and they hear thy words, but [they will not do them:] for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness. .......2018, individually and/or collectively, all nations of the world is sinking deeper by loving the lust of the flesh, eye, and pride of life. Wow! Wow! Wow!
  • BSP on Ezekiel 33 - 6 years ago
    Verses 7 through 9- we can not jut sit back and not warn others. It means life or death for us and for others.

    God is soo good that He 's ready to forget and remember your sins no more if you repent though others might criticise you because of the heinous sins you 've committed, but, don 't be dismayed, repent and you will be saved, for God is our Judge.

  • Meshack Henry Otieno on Ezekiel 33 - 9 years ago
    We will be answerable to our friend 's and enemy 's sins on the judgment day, so let us not rejoice when they make mistakes or sin but let us make sure that we point out their iniquities for our own sake. We have the power to forgive them and to ensure they pay for their own sins.
