Do you understand that the word of God is a living word, that Come to me is the drawing word of God.

God is continually speaking to us through patience and tolerance, drawing us and leading us to himself.

Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, tolerance and patience, not realizing that God's kindness leads you toward repentance? Romans 2:4

No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him,
yet you refuse to come to me to have life.John 6:44

I'm not sure "asking Jesus into your heart" is a biblical phrase, but by all means, call on Jesus today!! Each morning! Have the Spirit of Jesus walk with you and guide you in all that you do.

Rom 10:13 for every one--whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, he shall be saved.'

Do it Now! Praise God my friend. Jesus hears those who call on Him.

Also, calling on the Lord is from the heart. Even the mute will be "heard" by Jesus who searches the heart. For he puts His Spirit in you to call upon Him:

Rom 8:26 And, in like manner also, the Spirit doth help our weaknesses; for, what we may pray for, as it behoveth us , we have not known, but the Spirit himself doth make intercession for us with groanings unutterable,

Yes, indeed, many refuse to come to Christ, but those who call upon the name of the Lord are SAVED.

Why is it important to you to persuade people to NOT call to Christ?

Finn there was a time when you refused to come and there was a time when i refused too, how hard is that to understand, you cannot come before your time, this isn't a game of chance you know.

Jesus turns up at our house and there is always one conclusion

I must stay at your house today.”So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly.Luke 19:5,6
See how the word of God draws us Finn ?


Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost. Luke 19:9,10

Salvation comes to us.

It turns upon the day decides not when you and i do. Yes i know it's hurts our pride, when we think we came on our own accord after seeking the narrow way and found it, only to finding out it was him seekling and drawing us all along.

I agree with this.

Neither do you see a Scripture that says: "Satan, come into my heart and control my life from my innermost being, as my father, lord and master"; but Satan does come into the hearts of all who listen to his lies and who let him in the "door", and do his bidding, and they become Satan's "children" because his spirit is in them.
Jesus [as God the Word, the "Voice of YHWH"] warned Cain, as Moses records for us, in Genesis 4, that "Sin" -a personality, a "being" "lieth at"[his -Cain's], "door", but that "Cain must master him" [Sin], "for the desire of Sin was for Cain, for whom he" [Sin] "stretched out lustingly/greedily to overpower and rule/dominate".

Cain did not master the "Sin lying at his door", and Sin entered Cain, and Cain became then, by that entry, a "son of perdition".

1Jo 3:12 Not as Cain, [who] was of that wicked one, and slew his brother.

Gen 4:6 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? Gen 4:7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, Sin is lying at your heart's entry, stretching out lustily, seeking to dominate you [YSM literal translation].


חטאת chatta'ath sin
רבץ rabats is stretched out, lying at
פתח pethach opening/entrance/door .

תשוקה tĕshuwqah his lust


משל mashal is to control/rule

Then, when Satan tempted Judas, and Judas received the temptation into his heart and acted on it, the Word says that Satan entered Judas' heart.

Jhn 13:2 And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's [son], to betray him;Luk 22:3 Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.

But in contrast, Jesus stands at the door [heart's entry] and knocks, seeking entry into the hearts of all who will receive Him, and He comes in, and they fellowship together with a continual "feast".

Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Out of the heart proceed the issues of life. As a man thinks so is he. No asking involved . Did Adam and Eve ask for the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil to come into their hearts, they saw it and it was pleasing to the eye(mind).

When our eyes are opened by God, Jesus becomes pleasing to the eye and something marvellous happens to us, instead of something catastrophic like the fall.
