Lovingkindness and Mercies which do not end :)
« on: June 29, 2009, 08:53:10 AM »
This is a really good verse I found in Lamentations.  :bigGrin:

Lamentations 3:22 (Rotherham's Emphasized Bible):

Quote
The lovingkindnesses of Yahweh, verily they are not exhuasted, Verily! not at an end, are his compasions:

Isn't that a great verse? :) It doesn't even have anything to do with age-lasting/age-during. It just says his love and compassion is not exhausted nor ended.  :thumbsup:

That is good... I don't remember reading that before.  :HeartThrob:
"I knelt to drink,
And knew that I was on the brink
Of endless joy. And everywhere
I turned I saw a wonder there."

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Yep. And other positive meanings.

According to Strong:


Grace

ca,rij charis {khar'-ece}

Meaning: 

grace 
     that which affords joy, pleasure, delight, sweetness, charm, loveliness: grace of speech 


good will, loving-kindness, favour 
     of the merciful kindness by which God, exerting his holy influence upon souls, turns them to Christ, keeps,strengthens, increases them in Christian faith, knowledge, affection, and kindles them to the exercise of the Christian virtues 


what is due to grace  
     the spiritual condition of one governed by the power of divine grace 
     the token or proof of grace, benefit 
     a gift of grace 
    benefit, bounty 


thanks, (for benefits, services, favours), recompense, reward 
1 Timothy 2:3-4  ...God our Savior;  Who will have all men to be saved...
John 12:47  And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
Romans 4:5 But to the one who does not work, but believes in the one who declares the ungodly righteous ...

Hey your taking that out of context.  God's loving kindness is only for the elect.

Oh sorry, wrong forum.  Nevermind...

Job 9:20 Though I were righteous, my own mouth would condemn me; Though I [were] blameless, it would prove me perverse.

If the elect are already saved. And all others are doomed.
Why was Jesus on earth.
For the lousy food and suffering?

Hey Tim, yes I knew you are Domoman over there.  Keep on persevering, I know it is frustrating, but everyone will learn something from it (even b57... maybe).  What are you learning?  PATIENCE.  And patience is a key ingredient in LOVE.

I know some people over there drive me nuts too... I still have more patience to learn.
