Jesus taught to be honest... so why the deceit? Why not just answer my question? Why are you afraid?

blessed night purpleheart,
i hope you are well

i fear god and his judgements.. not yours or any others
i dont aim to please you, i aim to please HIM.

you seemed to have deleted a post with four questions that u asked me earlier in the thread.. which i answered with honesty. If you didnt understand what i wrote then i cannot explain it. only god can show you the truth.. and perhaps then will you fiind peaace .

with Jesus my saviour i will BECOME free from sin as i work out my salvation daily with him.
only a clean heart can enter into the kingdom of heaven.

GOD BLESS YOU
Peace

Perhaps they don't like their foundations shaken?

I think the TRUE answer is they are afraid of TRUTH?!



Mat 15: 8-9 comes to mind.
hey john,


Jesus is my rock, my foundation.. in him i put my trust,, no one, no how can shake him..
i dont claim to know everything , i wait upon the lord to show me what he needs me to see and know.. i give thanks for all things even the people as yourself who show so much negativity toward love and peace.
Blessing to u.


Peace.

Question 1. NO i work out my salvation daily/ god must show me what is in the depths of my heart so that i can repent and become free from sin.. i hope and pray that i may become free. as may all of us...
Question 2. NO As above god has yet to show me all of my sin therefore i must wait on him daily so that he can show me and i cant become free of sin.
Question 3. No sin can enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Question 4.You must be sinless to enter the kingdom of heaven


To be saved is to be become free from sin. This is what jesus came to save us from once we pick up our cross daily and follow him.
Many blessing to u
Then in so many words, no one who has ever lived beside Christ himself has ever entered into the kingdom of heaven while yet living as no one is ever without sin while they are alive in the sinful(corruptible) flesh. So even you have not yet entered into the kingdom of heaven, and will not until you die and no longer sin.

Luke 17:20-21

And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

I show you the TRUTH about the POWER of DECEPTION!! I gave quotes from books and pages too!!

Many who claim are CHRISTIANS will be rejected because of SATAN power to decieve!! Many think they are smater than the DEVIL!! THE DEVIL is smarter than 100 men put together!!

Jesus will say to MANY humans/Christians > Get away from me!! Mat 7: 21-24

NOT to a FEW!! Satan makes people think JESUS will reject a few!!

Were Our Sins Placed On Jesus Or Satan?
The answer to that question depends on if you believe the revelations of Ellen G. White or the Bible.
EGW says:
"It was seen, also, that while the sin offering pointed to Christ as a sacrifice, and the high priest represented Christ as a mediator, the scapegoat typified Satan, the author of sin, upon whom the sins of the truly penitent will finally be placed. When the high priest, by virtue of the blood of the sin offering, removed the sins from the sanctuary, he placed them upon the scapegoat. When Christ, by virtue of His own blood, removes the sins of His people from the heavenly sanctuary at the close of his ministration, he will place them upon Satan, who, in the execution of the judgment, must bear the final penalty. The scapegoat was sent away into a land not inhabited, never to come again into the congregation of Israel. So will Satan be forever banished from the presence of God and His people, and he will be blotted from existence in the final destruction of sin and sinners" (The Great Controversy, p. 422).

While the observance of the false Sabbath in compliance with the law of the state, contrary to the fourth commandment, will be an avowal of allegiance to a power that is in opposition to God, the keeping of the true Sabbath, in obedience to God's law, is an evidence of loyalty to the Creator. While one class, by accepting the sign of submission to earthly powers, receive the mark of the beast, the other choosing the token of allegiance to divine authority, receive the seal of God" (The Great Controversy, 1950, p. 605).
forgive me but i cannot criticize/ comment on what i do not know anything about.. i have not been shown anything about any special day to keep, i don't not practice keeping the sabbath day but i don't judge anyone who chooses to keep it either.
i follow no man made religion/sect/etc.. i put my trust in god who is alive within me to show me all truths. and so far he has brought much light and peace into my heart and continues to bless me.


bless.

You can accurately predict the future and what it will bring?

BTW, there's no such thing as an "SDA prophet."

Whenever one is presented with a simplistic either/or choice, most likely the correct answer is Both/And; for more detail see Balanced Apologetics: Using ... - Google Books
