“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a wealthy merchant looking for a fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had, and bought it!"
—Matthew 13:45-46 NIV




And once you've found it and possess it, nothing and no one, and no power or principality, not anything, can EVER take it away from you!


God Bless,

NAM, your brother in Christ.

You haven't read the bible, so somebody told you about a guy that was crucified and rose from the dead after rotting for three days in a tomb, and dagnabbit, you just doggone believe it.

Congratulations, son, either you just learned how all religions were formed, or you really really want that Angel Angelique for a girlfriend.

I had built up a relationship with god a long time before I met this girl Angelique lol. And you don't have to read the bible to understand the basic principles of Christianity and what Christ stands for. It is common knowledge (As a concept, whether or not you accept it as truth)

What happened recently was that I actually made the jump of faith and committed myself to Christ. I have been on speaking terms with god for a long time. Your post makes no sense to me whatsoever. God exists without the bible.

Oh and FYI: Me and Angelique had a little thing going a while ago but it never turned into anything serious, now we are just friends.

Well, after all of the dead saints rose up and roamed the holy city at the same time Jesus came back to life, I'm guessing the news traveled pretty fast by word of mouth.

Word of mouth.. still kickin after 2000 years.
Truth is everyone receives Christ when the Spirit of God draws a man and convicts that man of sin. Revelation of Christ by the Holy Spirit.

Over the past 2-3 years especially there has been a spiritual battle for my soul and for my mind. Enough here on ATS probably think I'm kooky enough as it is.. but at the risk of destroying any credibility I actually have left (On ATS LOL) I am proclaiming the following.

I now walk with god more than I ever have. I have properly confirmed my faith in Christ and I now have a more intimate relationship with god than I ever have in my entire life. This doesn't mean that I'm going to buy fully into religion, a very man manipulated concept. It means that I now have a beautiful relationship with god and plan to walk with him and serve him whenever I am needed or can. I am not going to preach to people, especially here at ATS. I will never condemn people and everyone is entitled to their own opinions and faiths, whether I believe them to be right or not.

Just wanted to say that, I think you all deserve to know where I stand as I contribute to ATS fairly regularly.

Wonderful thread, wish there were more like it and more like you.

I too had a divine encounter with the living God and my eyes were supernaturally opened to reality.

Too many want to argue about and deny what those who KNOW and have experienced.

Something I had to learn the hard way: don't ever allow fear to cause you to remain silent when God tells you to speak.

You have THE answer to all the problems in the world: the TRUTH

Never forget that God works through WORDS...

This quote confirms what you said:


"I'm reminded of the story Norvel Hayes told about his daughter Zona. Most of ya'll know Norvel. He's a minister and long-time friend of our family. But when Zona was in her late teens, she was very, very rebellious. She wasn't serving the Lord. She was living a really wild, crazy life. She loved to party. She'd stay out all hours of the night and this was driving Norvel nuts.

He constantly preached to her every day. He preached at her. He would chew her out. He quoted her scriptures that showed how wrong she was. He threatened her. He tried to scare her even into straightening up her life. But none of this worked. Nothing he ever said even phased her.

And one day he would pray and he said, God, why don't you help me? When are you going to ever save my daughter? And God spoke to him and said, Son, I'm going to save Zona as soon as you start loving her. And Norvel was insulted. He said, What do you mean, God? You know I love her more than the whole world.

He said, Son, if you love her, then quit preaching to her…quit chewing her out, quit harping on her and start showing her that you love her. He said from that moment on, he never said another negative thing to her. When she came in at all hours of the night, he was there with his arms held open wide to hug her and love her and tuck her into bed.

The next morning when he got up, the first thing he did was take her a cup of coffee. He encouraged her. He did all these kind things to her. He treated her like a queen. And you know, it was just no time until Zona totally and completely changed and gave her life back to the Lord. See, love never fails. And what Norvel couldn't do in months and months and months by criticizing and condemning and chewing her out, he was able to accomplish in no time when he just started showing the love and mercy of God."

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

Good, Im happy for you.

Just remember, if your life is a little too easy, and your a little to excepted, your probably not doing it right.

As lone wolf said, be prepared for backlash from your personal faith.

and mockers, oh will there be mockers...

That being said, W00T!

No you don't have to read it but you should want to. There's alot of history there you need to know. One thing you won't find in most bibles is his name Yahweh or the tetragrammaton hebrew version of YHWH. Satan is doing his best to make people forget his name and use his titles, even though we're told that anyone who calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved, they think his name is LORD when it's Yahweh.

Other things in the OT (Tenach) have historical significance and lessons to be learned, and prophecy and the prophetic meaning and application of the Feastdays of Yahweh.

Do yourself a favor... If you decide to start reading the bible, skip the useless info and head straight for matthew.

The OT is unnecessary....

Congrats on your new found spiritualism



You seem to not understand what the Living Word is. He is the Torah and Yahweh made flesh. Saying the Tenach is unecessary is like saying the Messiah is unecessary. You have fallen a long way to insult Christ Akragon. I'll tell you this little bit, the rest is for you to learn on you own. The OT is one of the witnesses to the identity of Yahweh and Christ. The fact that you do not know this surprises me. Maybe thats why you don't know who Messiah is, because the Tenach is "unecessary".

g,day mate. well done. im proud of you and i pray that the Lord will watch over you, bless you heal you and open understanding of his word to you as you commence your journey of discovery. mate, i read until something, a phrase a verse jumps out at me then i stop. wow i say and then think about the wow. i would suggest as others have that you not disgard the ot. as Jesus gets a mention in the third chapter of genesis and a lot more later on. but start where you feel the need, or where you feel the holy spirit wants you to start. remember. those that are led by the spirit are fed by the spirit. now thats gotta be cool. ask and then watch the spirit of God open up understanding to you. the book of james, toward the end of the new test. chapter one verse five may be of help. it is about asking God for wisdom.... i try to start each day with this. You Lord God are the Great Creator of the heavens the earth and the sky in between. thank you Father, in Jesus name thankyou, that i can hear the birds singing and watch the clouds march across the sky bringing life giving rain to the crops to help us feed the world. dont be afraid to get on your knees. i get on my knees and pray for my family my country and yours too my freind. i also have several phrases i like to remember. they may be of service to you... it is good with my soul... this is the day that the lord has made. i will rejoice and be glad in it.... and... ceasar might have said it, BUT. You Lord Jesus You Did It. You Came, You Saw, and You Conquered ALL. mate you will be attacked verbally, and spiritually. why, because now you have shown yourself to be against the ruler of this world. so, dress yourself in the full armour of God. (ephesians) AND REMEMBER Greater is He Who is in You than he who is in the world. mate any time. give me a heads up. if i can help you i will. you are now in my prayer list

What's odd is soon you'll enjoy being ridiculed at mocked for your testimony of Christ. It's weird, and grand all at the same time.

Awesome!

Just be sure you find your own way and take your own walk with God. Don't let any "church" or "group" determine who you are and what you believe. Read, think, pray, then think some more.
I believe in God and believe there is a higher power. I'm also a scientist. Many people think they're exclusive, they aren't. ... I had just been looking at all the science/tech threads you posted and happened upon this one. You're on the right track!


Don't be discouraged but don't be suckered in to a man-made group either. It's a tough journey, but the spirituality as opposed to the "religion" is well worth the trip!


Spirituality is from God, religion is from man. It's a matter of taking in all that man has created and learning more about God in the process without letting yourself be taken in by man alone

That is a very brave post on ATS.

S&F


In my opinion, it's "Relationship not Religion".
