Interesting Change
« on: March 06, 2011, 05:12:30 AM »
So I was ninja-sneaking around and looking at the guest topics, when I came across a thread; http://www.tentmaker.org/forum/discussions_universal_salvation/is_really_bad_pharisaical_spirit_possible_wout_belief_eternal_separation_3016.0.html ---- that had this in it;

but to me that's still different from saying that at the end of the day that you're burned toast because the Blood of Christ supposedly can only be applied effectively in this life, His promises are meaningless beyond this life for everyone who didn't initiate those spiritual laws in this life, and when it comes right down to it -- the grave forever seals some beyond the reach of Christ in the way that would have really mattered.

And as I was reading it, I read to the part talking about how people basically say there are no chances, and of course, reading it in the context of the poster who was saying such a mindset that once your dead you're fate is sealed is a ludicrous concept; and of course I was agreeing, thinking to myself - "Yeah, it is pretty ludicrous, Jesus is bigger than that..."

And then it hit me!  "...I just agreed to the fact that the idea that if you don't accept Christ in this life your fate is sealed was ludicrous...and it came so natural, without me even having to think about it - where as before I supported, defended, and spread that very belief tooth, sword, and nail..."

It was kind of nice, to see for a little blip of a second that "inner change" of thought. :)  And I just wanted to share that testimony of progress, afterall it is the little things that are often the most valuable to share.
CLV: Proverbs 10:12 Hatred, it rouses up quarrels, Yet love covers over all transgressions.
KJV: Proverbs 10:12 Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.

It is nice when those little lights come on.  Sometimes I find it almost a little scary, to be able see some things I'd never seen before - kind'a gets your attention.

It's so hard for someone/us to break through things we've been taught. But His Word reflecting daily upon our soul (well, upon one's being) is what is able to do it.. the two edged sword is able to penetrate and separate those fine lines and delicate threads of truth from error, and error from truth..

It's a wonderful thing! Each person who learns and realizes the Goodness of God! O how i hate the erroneous, absolutely illogical things which blaspheme His 100% kind and loving holy character and nature every single day..

..in summary, hooray!! :happygrin:
Jesus prayed "Sanctify them by thy truth, thy word is truth" John 17:17

.."in Christ all shall be made alive.. but each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those at His coming.. & then when He delivers the kingdom to the Father.." [Mt 13:33/1Cor 15:22-26]
