God will to you, when he will and if he wills.

The right heart condition? Be honest, humble, and hungry for truth.


I guess that's the thing "if he wills". Perhaps not everyone can be saved and I'm just one of those that can't be.

I am definitely honest and hungry for the truth. I come off as a typical arrogant atheist however so humble may be a stretch no matter how much I believe I am.

The bit from scripture you posted, unfortunately it comes down to the right heard condition again. All I could think of was epilepsy and why the demons couldn't choose between fire and water.

That may be the case but at least you get results when you ask google a question.


Google can't read your heart.

Ask the right questions with the right heart condition. You WILL get answers and the right ones.

ETA:

There are many times that people all over are being given answers and being talked to by God, and they ignore it and don't understand it. His message reaches people who are humble and meek and honest. They will know.

Haughtiness and arrogance reject the true God. Because he is not those things. He is love. And communicates with us all the time. You just have to be able to discern it. People who have faith can discern it.



I reposted your post for one reason: your use of the word: discernment.
I know daily I can't hope to know very much of anything at all, and in that regard, lies my true discernment, at the moment....as everything is always evolving. These explanations are mankind driven, by our very limited discernment, and wish to control our environs so we limit our pain and maximize our potential, when we hardly even know what, who or where we came from.....

Sometimes the most perceptive, honest thing is knowing you have little power to discern absolutely anything. Therefore, your mind remains open to all things, cognitively dissonant and paradoxical, until something finally hits you that makes sense. That discernment may be the key to all our struggles for understanding, purpose, randomness and purposefulness, chaos and order....
be well.
tetra


No. Not all questions are mankind driven. Some are actually driven by God.

While I sincerely appreciate your faith and discernment in that regard, I am not arrogant enough to think I know this. And that's not to say that I see your answer as arrogant, it's simply your belief based discernment system of regard and knowledge. But for me, that's way beyond my discernment. We are communicating as mankind, living in a manipulated by mankind existence. Searching for God is a fine line and slippery slope: In other words, I never think to define that for anyone else in such a definitive manner, for the best discernment I ever got from what God was supposed to mean, was it wasn't up to me to interpret....

This is the truth. If you are honest and hungry. Then God tells yous:

(Isaiah 55:3) . . .Incline your ear and come to me. Listen, and you will keep alive, And I will readily make with you an everlasting covenant In harmony with the expressions of loyal love to David, which are faithful.

(Isaiah 55:4-9) . . .Look! I made him a witness to the nations, A leader and commander to the nations.  5 Look! You will call a nation that you do not know, And those of a nation who have not known you will run to you For the sake of Jehovah your God, the Holy One of Israel, Because he will glorify you.  6 Search for Jehovah while he may be found. Call to him while he is near.  7 Let the wicked man leave his way And the evil man his thoughts; Let him return to Jehovah, who will have mercy on him, To our God, for he will forgive in a large way.  8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, And your ways are not my ways,” declares Jehovah.  9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So my ways are higher than your ways. . .

You have been.

You see I love you.

Jehovah loves yous.

(1 John 4:7-10) . . .Beloved ones, let us continue loving one another, because love is from God, and everyone who loves has been born from God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love has not come to know God, because God is love. 9 By this the love of God was revealed in our case, that God sent his only-begotten Son into the world so that we might gain life through him. 10 The love is in this respect, not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a propitiatory sacrifice for our sins.

God's love knows all things and still loves. And if we are loved, which you are. That is because Jehovah loved you with mercy. Which is his true nature. And I am happy to share it with you.

Fair enough. I guess it's unrequited love as far as I'm concerned as I couldn't love the god that's described.

Cheer for the love. I'm sure you're a very nice person, love's a strong word tho. If you love everyone then it sort of loses it's magic.

I know what you're saying and that is not the love I'm talking about..This is true love:

(1 Corinthians 13:4-13) . . .Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous. It does not brag, does not get puffed up, 5 does not behave indecently, does not look for its own interests, does not become provoked. It does not keep account of the injury. 6 It does not rejoice over unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth. 7 It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails. But if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away with; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away with. 9 For we have partial knowledge and we prophesy partially, 10 but when what is complete comes, what is partial will be done away with. 11 When I was a child, I used to speak as a child, to think as a child, to reason as a child; but now that I have become a man, I have done away with the traits of a child. 12 For now we see in hazy outline by means of a metal mirror, but then it will be face-to-face. At present I know partially, but then I will know accurately, just as I am accurately known. 13 Now, however, these three remain: faith, hope, love; but the greatest of these is love.


No I'm not a pervert. And no I'm not talking about romantic love which fleeting. But true love. Which lasts forever.

Hey I'm way over fifty.....
What makes people think at certain ages they've got a better, higher grasp than people of a different age. Frankly, your age and where you were born have little to do with it. Anyone and everyone can be awake, aware, attendant and knowledgeable, and strive for discernment. Compartmentalizing people like that is a big part of our current problem.
I'm not a big fan of proselytizing. However, I am quite a big fan of faith....in at least, something, you commit yourself wholly to that enables you to maintain hope, integrity, courage, etc..... Those are very real things, and currently highly undervalued in our digital, cell phone hypnotizing, gaming, virtual synthetic reality world.....

Jonah was sent by Jehovah to Nineveh because of their badness. They were evil people with violence that was natural. Jehovah sent his prophet to a nation that was not Israelite to warn them of their bad behavior.

Jonah did not want to go and boarded a ship in the opposite direction .

When Jehovah created a storm Jonah, a prophet and faithful in Jehovah saw it, he said he was the problem and to through him overboard.

When he was the ship was saved, and a big fish ate him.

His three days in the belly of the big fish was symbolic of how long Jesus would be in death.

When Jonah repented the big fish spit him out on dry land. And he went to Ninevah. And preached in his language.

The king brought him before him and asked what he was saying. When he was told the prophets words, the king repteneded of badness, And made everone in the city to repent.

And God decided not to destroy them. And showed mercy upon a people who did not have no idea of what is truth or justice.

I understood what you meant.
As much as an atheist can at least I guess. I can assure you that as a pervert myself I didn't think you were.

Try not to quote scripture so much, I think it would help your goals. I think it's better to just say what you believe, and then when questioned you can bring up the verses. Your own words may not be better than what the good book says, however far more effective for someone like me who automatically reads scripture with a "bad" heart.

I think you are partly right. And thus you are listening. Before I used to quote a lot more. Even still. I need you to know I am not the one talking to you.

I don't think it's possible for me to know that.
I can accept that you believe that, but that's the best I can do.

Perhaps speak as if you are the one talking to me until I can understand that God is speaking through you.
Trying to do it the other way around will never work.

I know Jehovah loves you.

I cannot respond for him.

Pray to him . Say a prayer to Jehovah in Jesus name.

I was reading through this thread again. And read this. And after all the years I have, I think this is one of the most profound statements I've ever made.
