#1 What would you do if you invited me to your home and you said "Hey buddy relax, make yourself at home." and I sat in a recliner and put my feet up?
#2 What does "firstborn" mean to you?
For someone who proclaims to be such a wise old enlightened soul, you sure give in to juvenile bickering quite a bit
They are out looking for Him to return again in the streets,
oil signifies looking expectantly for Him to return,
view it in that context since all born again have the Holy Spirit indwelling them. I know oil is symbolic for the Holy Spirit, but oil is also fuel for a lamp to see. So not all the time is it a reference to the Holy Spirit. If it was then Elijah had a poor woman selling the Holy Spirit in the OT.
Thanks for the chance to sharpen my iron, not mad at you brother at all, I like to sharpen
Look to your own self.
HE didn't say I AM GOD... because he knew better then to make that claim..

Have I railed against the other 6
or do you rail against those who have not all 7?
If they teach they are evil and not Biblical, of course I will, they are right there in Psalms, English uses 1 word for "praise" that the Hebrew has 7 different words for. And 7 different types of praise.
Because I don't speak in tongues does that mean I am inadequate?
In what sense? You're inadequate in not having a private prayer language, you're not inadequate in having other gifts of the Holy Spirit. It's AN evidence, not THE all-inclusive evidence, that's also a false teaching in the other direction.
Is the ear not important because it is not the foot or the nose because it is not the hand?
No. Why are you going into tongues and gifts? This was about Davidic praise and worship from Psalms in the OT.
Have we not all been given a measure of faith?
Yes, what does this have to do with Davidic praise from the OT book of Psalms?
Are we not all parts working in conjunction praying and edifying one another in the areas where one may lack?
Yes. My issue is telling people they CANNOT do something Biblical, not in teaching them they CAN DO something Biblical.
Perhaps we should just stop with the generalities altogether.
I think you need to stop being so offended, and realize that offense might be conviction and welcome it in prayer and meditation on the Word. We're talking about Davidic praise and worship from Psalms. The Lord is moving this generation into a restoration of Davidic praise right now in the body of Christ.

They would throw you out in the street, it's the most offensive thing you can do to them in that culture, to show them the bottom of your foot.
Firstborn to them denotes the position of rank of birth, not birth order. David was called the "firstborn" of his brothers, yet was Jesse's youngest son.
You must know Hebraisms for the scriptures to make sense, they were written by Hebrews.
And I disagree, anytime He said "I AM" it was a direct reference to the name YHWH gave to Moses at the burning bush to tell Pharaoh who He was. "Son of Man" his favorite title, was a direct reference to Daniel chapter 7 where the Messiah has the characteristics of God.
Shed the Western Hellenized mindset and try to approach it from the standpoint of the Eastern Semitic mindset of the Jews who were Torah educated and trained. And treat every time you read where they are indignantly full of rage and ready to drag Him out in the streets to stone Him to death as a clue that your mindset is missing an important detail from the text.
That was after you called me a lunatic and said I was not in touch with reality.
She's obviously open to demonic activity with all the nonsense shes been involved with,
I just didn't want to call it out in public,
you said it, not me
Just because baptists and presbyts don't worship in all 7 styles doesn't necessarily mean that they prohibit the worship in all 7 styles.
devalue them either because to say that these denominations prohibit such is what I believe to be a very grave false assumption.
