I have given My hand to release ~
And if received will bring great peace ~
But for those offended in flesh and heart ,
Their release is when they start ~
To let go of what was never theirs ~ ~
Only then can they climb My stairs "8"
And stand in the center with Me "8"
Surrounded with the Living creatures and the THREE **!!!**
The Father ,The Spirit and The Son ,
For My forgiveness has already been done !
So to carry a burden of offence comes against Me !
Not any one else for I created all you see ! ! !
Mark 11:24-26 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.
Luke 6:37 [ Judging Others ] Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Luke 11:4 Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation.
Luke 17:3-5 3 So watch yourselves. If your brother or sister sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them. 4 Even if they sin against you seven times in a day and seven times come back to you saying I repent, you must forgive them. 5 The apostles said to the Lord, Increase our faith!
Well, I’m pretty offended at vanity threads...
I picked my nose and it bleeded.
I wish a certain blasphemer would quit releasing his vanities on Free Republic.
of fence (like white picket fence)
or did you mean
You can have my vanity when you pry it from my cold blasphemous hands! (Wait,that didn’t rhyme).
They don't bother me so much if they make sense.
However, anything ridiculous like this that provides someone with an opportunity to disparage God offends me.
The offense of the cross is one thing. Offending people because you're making a fool of yourself brings dishonor to God.
good one. Release the vanity posts.
The problem with this this new emphasis on *prophecies* is that any prophecy must line up with Scripture, or it’s obviously of the devil.
Now, if it doesn’t line up with Scripture, then we can ignore it, knowing the source is the enemy, because there is no extra-Biblical revelation to be given anymore. God’s word is complete and there’s no need for *new* revelation.
If it does line up with Scripture, then it’s redundant and can be ignored because we already have the Word telling us what we need to know and do.
If someone wants to encourage forgiveness, all they have to do is open the word and there are verses by the dozen on it. We don’t need a *prophecy* to tell us to do what God has already told us to do.
Matter of fact, likely we don’t need any more TEACHING at all on forgiveness because I think pretty much everybody has a handle on God’s opinion of it. What we need is more PRACTICE of forgiveness.
Our biggest problem as Christians in America today is not a matter of enough revelation, or a better understanding of it, but better obedience to that which God has already revealed to us in His word as individuals. When we, as individuals, start to obey what God has already shown us then HE will reveal more truth to us FROM HIS WORD, and HE will enlighten us as to the meaning of what has already been revealed in Scripture.
And we don’t need bad attempts at bad poetry and prose to accomplish it.
“And we dont need bad attempts at bad poetry and prose to accomplish it.”
Quite so, quite so.
Agreed. I was making a joke based on the title.
And we dont need bad attempts at bad poetry and prose to accomplish it.

Exactly. Just because you call gibberish prophecy doesn’t make it prophecy...just ask Joe Smith. ;)
I did get that too.
Question: who is your favourite Addams Family character?
AMEN. And that’s because His Revelation to man is complete. He has told us all He wants us to know. And yet that seems not to be enough to some. They want more revelation from Him. WHY? THey don’t even know what to do with what He’s already given us. They don’t study it, they don’t preach it, they don’t grow with it, they don’t respect it. They just want MORE. More “words of knowledge”, more “prophecy”. They can’t even handle what He’s already given us. Why in the world would He give us MORE?
