Yes, so much, so true, so beautifully expressed, though i doubt sometimes that god does love me, or maybe what is closer to the truth, i doubt more that i deserve gods love.
None of us deserve God's love because of what Adam allowed into the world (sin, doubt, and fear). But God who creatd us, decided that He still wanted to have a relationship with us anyway. He loves us so much that He chose to send Jesus to earth to be that pure and sinless sacrifice. To take Adam's place, by bringing THEE BLESSING back to the earth. Jesus brought grace and love for a fallen world. Now because we are covered in the Blood of Jesus (once we accept Him as Lord and Saior) God only sees us as righteous and sinless. In right standing with Him. Its Grace....which means unmerrited favor or God's overwhelming desire to treat us as if sin never happened.

God does not want for us to weep because of what He set up to provide redemption for us. But to honor what Jesus did by accepting His love and making the choice to walk in His ways and be obedient and extend His love to others. He hopes that we will grab ahold of His love and begin to desire a relatonship with Him so that He may love and bless us. He desires that we learn all about Him, and spread what we learn to others, so that they can become apart of His Kingdom as well.

Blessings

Gosh I wouldnt know what to say about myself, to introduce myself is to sprout my 'doings' or promote myself and i cant do that, i need to resolve how to introduce myself in a way that doesnt feel like im saying how good i am, rather more 'hello, i would love to learn about you'.
Ya know that is a realy great way to think about things! And a great attitude :) it really is refreshing getting to know you!

Just a plain old "Hi, I'm softly, it's nice to to be here" would do just wonderfully. Were just plain folk here - none of us really toot our own horn! :D

Welcome!

It's really strange, they just don't see it, I explained it to the Kabbalist and mentioned some passages somewhat loosely to him (coz I'm not versed in the bible), and he knew the sections I was referring too and he said he'd contemplated the idea that Jesus was the messiah but still didn't believe it, he said I was delusional coz he was the messiah. No one I have spoken too will even tolerate the idea. It's an unusual position for me to be in because I have no one to talk too about it. I'm very glad I chose this forum, you are just a wonderful group of people and while I'm not traditional in anything religious, I believe what is in my heart is my truth and God sees that and knows my truth and I hope I can offer something worthy for people, maybe something that gives them hope or makes them believe even more because I think sometimes no matter how much someone might believe there can be a tiny doubt and if anything I say can remove that doubt, I'd feel fulfilled or if I just made someone smile, that would be good enough for me.

The sad thing is that there are many believers that are in the same place. They don't see how wonderful and loving God is. Or how much He loves them. And most (maybe half) are so busy with everyday life that they make no time to have a relationship with Him. And it is all just the enemy who is out to steal, kill and destroy the Body of Christ so that God's heart is hurt.

Something to think about...is to begin to pray (if you have not already) for God to bind the strongman from their (the whole jewish nation, especially those closest to you) minds so that the veil can be removed.....then ask God who is the Lord of the harvest to send laborers to them with the Word of God. Someone that they will listen to. And i will be praying that too.

We all are very glad that you are here too!
Grace and peace be yours in abundance!
Blessings

Why would anyone want to hurt God? He has feelings, why hurt anyone, let alone the one that gave you the air you breathe....
Yes, I have been asking a great deal, and explaining why I'm asking, and also about the troubles that will come, that maybe he will not do it or less lives will be lost and reason why.

The devil hates God. And thus he is out to destroy God's people any way he can so that it will hurt God. God cares deeply for the people that He has created. The devil has no control over us unless we let him. And he knows it. So as he is very crafty, he is destroying many people by their own hand. It is very sad to me to see.

Our enemy the devil knows it is all about words and he wants to get our words speaking in such a way he can open up shop and begin to steal - kill and destroy

I have on a few occasions while in prayer or while praying for somebody, thoughts and words come into my head which I can only put down to the voice of the Holy Spirit. On numerous occasions I have been warned by the Holy Spirit of impending harm - which comes into my head almost like an audible voice. For example, I was driving on the highway a few months back and a still voice in my head said "somebody is going to do a U-turn in front of you". I immediately slowed down and sure as anything a person drove from the other side of the highway, on a blind bend, across my side of the highway in front of me. If I had not slowed down I would have hit him.

The reason I am discussing this is often when I relate these happenings to other Christians I get a blank response - as if to say "buddy you have had to much to drink" or I get the response "you need your head checked" but more often I get the response "I wish could also hear God".

I just want to know how many of you have heard the voice of the Holy Spirit and what can we do as Christians to encourage other Christians to recognize the soft voice of the Holy Spirit.

I do not believe I am special, or nuts or paranoid. Yes I do have my own thoughts which cloud my hearing but when the Holy Spirit speaks it is as if His voice is crystal clear and exceptionally peaceful.

I was in a major car accident a few years back and while my car was spinning out of control, I believe the Holy Spirit spoke in that moment of turmoil. Is was as if time stood still - now there were other people in the car and believe me time did not stand still for them. Just as my car was about to roll (@ 120km/hr) the Holy Spirit told me to take my foot off the brake - no spiritual enlightenment just plain simple instruction. The result was nobody in the car was hurt because the car did not roll but actually straightened itself out and came to a halt in the grass on the side of the highway. Afterwards I found out the entire steering column was broken at the time of impact - I had no way of controlling the car - God saved our lives.

Once when I went to pray for a sick child, as I walked in the hospital ward the Holy Spirit said to me that the boys father would give his life to Christ when his son is saved. Sure as anything his son was saved and he did give his life to Christ.

Please share your experiences of hearing the Holy Spirit, it can only encourage those who think they do not hear from God to start listening more carefully.

I have had these same experiences. We cannot both be nuts, I hope anyway.. lol
 
The voice that speaks to me internally or sends me warnings in dreams I have always attributed to God. I do not know how to discern how these communications are specifically from the Holy Spirit or from God. I have always thought of the Holy Spirit as that which brings me new revelations when I am studying the Word - helps me see God's word in a way in which I've never quite seen it before. I also feel as though it is the Holy Spirit that allows me to practice discernment - to see things as they really are even though they look as though they are cloaked in good, but are really evil at their core. It is interesting how some of us attribute different divine communication to specific aspects of the Trinity. The bottom line, however, is that God speaks to us and what a blessing it is that we are able to hear and act upon what we are being told.
