Quote (Hanoch @ July 18 2008,05:19) My brothers, as I was reading what Gene was saying, my heart was broken – he obviously feels swept aside, my brothers, and we really ought to bask in the love of God, and give no place for the devil at all, our enemy!!!
Sometimes that takes being quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to wrath, for the wrath of man does not end in the righteousness God is working in us; let us love one another and speak about Jesus, from the Spirit.
We've all spoken words not coming from the Spirit at times – words not ministering life (whether the words are true or not) so let's all repent and go follow a man of God who can lead us further into the truth 1 John 2:13-15
God just revealed to me that this relationship between spiritual father and son is not of total authoritarianism, but of dialogue: the hearts of the fathers must turn to the sons, and the sons must also turn to the fathers: neither are fully functional without the other, as God also is very intimate with His Son! God!
Sometimes, truth words alone won't do it: it didn't do it for the Jews. We must abide in the Vine, and the Vine is not the Vine without His community: seriously, I know “alot” of the Bible, but that doesn't garauntee that I know the life-giving Jesus, but a child can know Jesus without know the letters of the Bible. Very big snare to avoid there… God, save us from wrong intentions, clean the motives of our hearts, God, and the arrogance and pride, God, wash us with Your blood and clean our motives, God, we renounce to any spirit – offense, arrogance, lethargy that is not of You, God – God, we want the one Spirit and His mind to rule in our lives – the Spirit of Jesus Christand the Father! Forgive us and restore us to committment with people, fellowship and service in the local church.
I've just repented of this very thing today!! Let's get this show on the road again.

Rejoice young man, during your childhood, and let your heart be pleasant during the days of young manhood. And follow the impulses of your heart and the desires of your eyes. You know that God will bring you to judgement for all these things. So remove grief and anger from your heart and put away pain from your body, because childhood and the prime of life are fleeting.
..for I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Those who walk can be guided.
They might hear a word behind them saying
’This is the way. Walk in it’

1 Cor 6.12
All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything.
1 Cor 10.13
All things are lawful, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful, but not all things edify.
We are under the Law of the Spirit which is a law of freedom. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. All things work together for good for those who Him, who are called according to His purposes. We have options we need to remain free from idolatry.
