What must I do to be saved from Gods wrath and be made acceptable to Him? Is it good works that saves? Is it God that saves?
Galatians 2:16 ...for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
If we can’t agree if it was a apple, an pomegranate or grapes, which fruit appears on the first page of the Holy Book (or maybe the second, I dunno, I haven’t read it myself), then how can we agree on anything else?
Well,I hope he/she understood my statements about being G-d’s partner in making the world a better place. It’s not just a Jewish idea.
Galatians 4:16: Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?
You make a very interesting point about the use of pomegranate imagery in the priestly garments. Thanks.
I’ve also wondered if the use of palm tree imagery in the Temple might be a hint that the Tree of Life is/was some sort of palm tree.
1 Kings 6:32
So he made two doors of olive wood, and he carved on them carvings of cherubim, palm trees, and open flowers, and overlaid them with gold; and he spread the gold on the cherubim and on the palm trees.
1 Kings 6:35
He carved on it cherubim, palm trees, and open flowers; and he overlaid them with gold evenly applied on the engraved work.
1 Kings 7:36
He engraved on the plates of its stays and on its borders, cherubim, lions and palm trees, according to the clear space on each, with wreaths all around.
2 Chronicles 3:5
He overlaid the main room with cypress wood and overlaid it with fine gold, and ornamented it with palm trees and chains.
Rather, as we read in Ephesians 2:10: For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
God ordained good works that we should walk in them, which is our reasonable service out of the love we have for Him. I hope that helps to clarify.
One suspects that from all these daily quotes on JimRob’s hard disks, you could assemble the complete Holy Bible, or at the very least the Book of Mormon!
The salvation question is important to followers of Christ
because we are told to spread the Gospel.
Some make it harder than others.
I always think of the guy on the cross next to Jesus whose only “work” was to believe.
As the old saying goes “The road to hell is paved with good intentions”.
And I always think of the scoundrels who spend their lives hurting others, and I am told by some here that IF on their death beds they declare “to believe” then they will be saved. Why then be good?
“that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
Galatians 2:16: Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
Hell is reserved for those who "for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified"
Ephesians 1:13: In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
Ephesians 1:14: Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
To whom do you apply this old saying: The road to hell is paved with good intentions
saying you believe but not believing will not fool God.
Come home to the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.
The Apostle Paul is the minister to the Gentiles, which is all of us, and God and Christ Jesus appointed Paul this minister to the Gentiles to preach the Grace of God and Salvation without works of the Law. Even the Jewish Apostle Peter warned that we all should heed and follow our beloved brother Paul in all the wisdom give unto him:
The Apostle Peter writes - II Peter 3:15: And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
The Apostle Paul writes - Romans 2:16: In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
Peter never wrote to men that we are judged by Jesus Christ according to Peter's gospel - this Gospel was commissioned to Paul by Christ Jesus and God the Father. Heed God's Word and believe the Gospel of Grace which Paul is the minister to us Gentiles.
But what do we find Peter writing:
II Peter 3:15: And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
II Peter 3:16: As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
God desires that all who have put their faith in Christ KNOW that they have eternal life In Christ. The Bible declares by God's Word that there is NO CONDEMNATION to the believer who has the faith of Christ and believes in Christ Jesus's cross and resurrection [Romans 8:1]. The most important thing to know is that we are saved the very second we have put our trust in Christ. This is what God says, not what any man says: neither are we destined for purgatory - rather, we are 100% certain that we will be in heaven just as Christ Jesus is in heaven with the Father. But our destination is even more secure than that, for the Apostle Paul writes that we ALREADY have all the heavenly blessings in Christ [Eph 1:3].
Ephesians 1:3: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
Now that is a very interesting observation!
‘So they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.’ Acts 16:31
You're dodging. What if Bin Laden had said he believed and he really believed?
Linnaeus originally gave the pomegranate the scientific name of Punica malus
malus in latin = evil /bad /wicked
The scientific name was later changed .
People today pretty much think that scientist don’t believe in the Bible ... Linnaeus set up the modern classification system according to it’s kind because HE DID BELIEVE in the written word.
