Re: When God speaks

I believe He just wants to hear our prayer, even if He knows it, because coming to Him with our needs shows our Trust in Him and it is an act of worship.

Psalms 50:15 (KJV) And call upon me in the...

Re: When God speaks

"battalogein" is repeating words without sense, like when you stutter, hence, by implication, it also means vain repetitions.
The heathen were not doing necessarily that. Their prayers introduction...

Re: When God speaks

Do you think "battalogein" here is being used not necessarily to describe the action but to compare the action to the equivalent effect? a figure of speech?

Re: When God speaks

As Esaias points out, the key is in this part:

Matthew 6:7 (NKJV) And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard (their request) for their...

Re: When God speaks

I do use my own words as well, and I follow the Lord's prayer model. I do also pray Psalms. I do have my favorite Psalms that I have memorized, and other favorites that I read aloud during my prayer.

Re: When God speaks

It was the norm to teach by example, and illustrations. Even in the Hebrew language was easier to show than to explain deeply as you can do with Greek. Jesus was showing a model to imitate with your...

Re: Bro Epley's Racine Apostolic Church Camp Meeti

Owning a TV could fall into the realm of this teaching:

Mark 9:47-48 (NKJV) 47 And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye,...

Re: Bro Epley's Racine Apostolic Church Camp Meeti

That phrase has been taken out of context so much that it is almost insulting. I'm glad some people broke traditions "landmarks" with Scripture, starting from own our Lord Jesus Christ and the...

Re: Bro Epley's Racine Apostolic Church Camp Meeti

Even though it is pretty crazy, aren't you sure that was done as an illustration to make a point? (not playing down the fact that it is crossing the line of crazy).

Re: Bro Epley's Racine Apostolic Church Camp Meeti

Did they preach against having a TV set or against having Cable, netflix, etc…? Or did they preach against watching any worldly movie (which are pretty much all Hollywood movies in this age)?

Re: When God speaks

Yes, that's the Spirit guiding you, revealing things to you, leading you, moving you :).

He also makes you understand that those thoughts are coming from Him, so you follow, and feel his love and...

Re: When God speaks

I definitely can't be a language police, but I think the continuous use of the phrase "God told me" or "God said" to mean spiritual guidance waters down by misuse of the phrase, the severity of the...

Re: When God speaks

Amen! Brother everything you said is what the Scriptures refers to as the Spirit revealing, leading, guiding, etc... or also the operation of some of the gifts of the Spirit.

Re: When God speaks

I think many saints just use the same expressions they have heard before to describe their personal experience with God guiding them. They share it because of the excitement or just to make a point...

Re: When God speaks

I said "great prophets and some saints in Acts". My point was not to make the OT prophets greater than anybody. My use of the adjective "great" was a way to honor them, not to compare them with NT...

When God speaks

When God spoke to people in the Bible, sometimes it tells you in details how it happens, sometimes it doesn’t. If we want to know how God speaks, then we should go to those instances that we have...
