Yes the Spirit of Christ was first shared among brothers and sisters at Pentecost.
Only Americans could imagine that about themselves.January 23, 2018 at 5:51 pm #820986Ed JParticipant

It was the United Kingdom that gave Israel back her land.
“Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things?
Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day?
or shall a nation be born at once?” (Isaiah 66:8)

Politics is politics.
God’s hand allows all the events on earth.
But that does not mean that the agents of His will deserve any praise or enjoy His favour.

Was Trump chosen by God? Who else would he be chosen by?
Acts 17:26 and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation,
“And he changeth the times and the seasons; He removeth
kings, and setteth up kings; he giveth wisdom unto the wise,
and knowledge to them that know understanding. He revealeth
the deep and secret things; he knoweth what is in the darkness,
and the light dwelleth with him.” ( Dn 2: 20-22 )
17 This matter is by the decree of the
watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the
intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in
the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and
setteth up over it the basest of men.”
( Dn 4: 13-17 abbreviated )
“25 That they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling
shall be with the beasts of the field, and they shall make thee
to eat grass as oxen, and they shall wet thee with the dew of
heaven, and seven times shall pass over thee, till thou know
that the Most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and
giveth it to whomsoever He will. 26 And whereas they
commanded to leave the stump of the tree roots; thy kingdom
shall be sure unto thee, after that thou shalt have known
that the heavens do rule.” ( Dn 4: 25-26 )
“31 While the word was in the king’s mouth, there fell a voice
from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is
spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee. 32 And they shall
drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts
of the field; they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven
times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the Most High
ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever He
will.” ( Dn 4: 31-32 )
“And he was driven from the sons of men; and his heart was
made like the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild asses;
they fed him with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the
dew of heaven; till he knew that the most high God ruled in the
kingdom of men, and that He appointeth over it whomsoever
he will.” ( Dn 5: 21 )March 22, 2018 at 10:02 am #821826
I tested your quoted words Nick. Sometimes it is good to apply our own teachings and standards to ourselves and not always force them away from ourselves and toward others. I am sure you agree with my words because we meet God to talk about ourselves and not other servants. This is what I do with your accusations and insinuations. I remind you that this is the standard you have set for yourself no matter how difficult you set the bar. You see, it is not really being applied to others, but most certainly being applied to yourself.March 22, 2018 at 10:44 am #821829
I prefer the kinder judgements of God.
You have much to learn about dealing with people IMO..April 11, 2018 at 3:38 pm #822191
Kinder judgements come to us when we do not judge so harshly. It is up to yourself Nick.
If I went around condemning everyone, I would know that all I am doing is setting the bar very high for myself.
Everyone is different and at a different stage even if they are saved.
You act like you are the standard, but then you do not even live up to your own standard.
You have the truth according to you, but you change your mind too.
Take it easy on other people. Even do it to make your own judgements easier.
Further, there is a difference between challenging a teaching vigorously using scripture and judging another’s servant.
ANd some shoots are delicate, let them grow strong. What is the point in trampling on them.April 11, 2018 at 4:03 pm #822193
Such advice would be so much more effective if you spent less time patronising and judging others than you do.

You make judgements about how I live my life.
You judge that I am a hypocrite.
Pray tell what you know about how I live my life so as to make these harsh judgements.April 11, 2018 at 7:13 pm #822195
You have maligned me in front of witnesses.
It would be interesting for all of us to to discover the details of your judgement.April 18, 2018 at 8:14 pm #822334
Nick, you come here judging everybody. But these forums are for people who are born from above to study and learn together. You never understood that from the tone of your posts, accusations, and inability to be honest enough to say yes or no. At least by the posts you have created in the last 5 years or so.
I simply put a mirror in front of you. If it looks ugly and you feel judged, know that I am not passing personal judgement, rather giving you enough to judge yourself. For most of the time I am quoting scripture or saying it in my own words. I am not into saying directly that you are not personally being by the Spirit, but you continue to accuse others of this all the time and let’s face it, it is not a small accusation because the children of God are led by the Spirit right. I think most who read these kinds of things see a self-righteous man. Again, I am not saying that you are, but floating this idea so you can judge for yourself. After all, you should judge yourself and it is hard to see yourself, so listening to others is wise.
I believe your own accusations and judgments here are you setting the bar for your own judgement. I kindly remind you of this in grace to help you avoid a harsher judgement, but you feel like I am unfairly judging you when I am not. Yes I point out things I believe you are doing wrong and teachings that you have that are wrong, but I do not pass judgement on you by saying things that you say. It’s really up to you how you respond to the scriptures and teachings on scriptures, but if you continue to cause unnecessary divisions with your judgements and act in a way that is outside of love, then what use are you to the body?
Again, I am only putting this to you to judge for yourself. If you are convinced you are acting as a true servant of God should, then obviously you will continue. But if on the day your life is measured you see a whole lot of shortcomings and see that others saw them too, then you cannot accuse the watchman of not passing on the warning.April 18, 2018 at 8:40 pm #822337
You spend too much time judging and condemning others here.
Should you not rather focus on issues than the faults you see in others?
