    As a believer chosen for end times for a certain purpose I was taught the word of God by God.
    In understanding of the word not taught by any man. Now the time is right for me to again understand the times.
    However if you truly know God and truly understand his Word, Then by the power of the Spirit you will be able to define who I am in Christ. YOU see, I am like Christ in that I follow what Christ did and do not make Christ God but the Son of God sat on Gods right hand. Like Moses God spoke directly to the people and the Pharaoh he made him like a god to them because he did Gods will and revealed it to them.He had the authority and the power of God as did Christ.

    The purpose of the Law and the teachings of the Prophets prove the truth that only one God is to be worshipped and eventually Christ will put all things which includes himself back under God.

    I choose the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob above all things. He is the only God who does as his words say.
    It is God you must trust with all your heart. If you examine Christ you will see he loved God and he could not have performed
    those miracles without Gods power to release the oppressed.

    I have spoke about God to others before I even went to school. " Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings,"
    The word comes to me and I have search the of scripture to find the book where it is written.

    Some serve God in an outward form. But true believers can only serve God by living in his truth guided by his Spirit.

    Jesus Christ never needed to write his words down and the gospels and the books of the OT were not necessary for those like the persons in Acts 10
    44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.

    45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.

    46 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter,

    47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?



    Be careful how you judge because the same measure you use for others will be used for yourself.
    I already know that as you read through this post you already know who my God is and whom it is I serve.

    We do as Christ did and we see the pathway through Gods word. Both to Christ and through Christ and to God and the Holy Spirit. For the first commandment is very clear... Love the LORD thy God and only him shall you serve.

    The Word of God is NOT the Bible. It can't teach you anything. Only God can teach you if you were chosen to hear His voice and obey ALL His commandments.

    Do you know anything about the beast or why it was necessary to exist?

    Do you have any idea what "Christ" means?

    Do you understand the difference between the flesh of man and the spirit of man.? Unless you know that basic knowledge, you will not believe how we're created.

    Do you know what is going to happen on the day of the Lord?

    Do you know anything about how we're going to live after the day of the Lord?

    Has the Lord taught you anything other what you see written in the Bible?

    You have nothing to defend yourself with.
    Had you known the LORD, you would have answered with an apology.

    King James Bible
    For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

    Proverbs 21:30
    There is no wisdom and no understanding And no counsel against the LORD.

    When I wrote "YHWH rebuke you" in Hebrew to you יהוה לנזוף לך. If you had looked it up then you would have known
    to examine yourself and your own wisdom. The believer has always been lead by God. The word in Proverbs is clear.
    Only a fool would say in his heart there is no god. The Power comes from knowing Gods word and trusting God.

    Being wise unto oneself does not make us wise unto God the Father.

    Never rely on what you think you know, trust the LORD and he will show you the right way.

    The truth causes us to trust God. If you trusted God then why try to glorify yourself and not God?

    You need to examine yourself, as everyone does who loves YHWH.

    You admit to just being a servant... that would explain a lot. As I am no longer a servant

    John 15:15.KJV.
    15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

    Ephesians 6:17King James Version (KJV)
    17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

    Maybe your teachings are outdated by the truth Christ brought which will never pass away.
    You cannot steal what you can never possess. Christ is the good shepherd.

    Those who have and are part of the Covenant know:- God has called them by name and belong to him.
    They also know as Jeremiah teaches:-God puts his law/word on the inside.



    King James Bible
    But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.


    31 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

    32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord:

    33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

    34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.


    My sheep hear my voice, and I know them and they follow me.

    But it isn't always an easy path. Satan the thief will try and rob you if you, But in truth nothing can pluck us from Gods hands.

    Sometimes the word needs to sink down within. You should not be fighting or worried about what others believe.
    In time those who are being saved will come around because of their love of truth.

    And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

    11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

    Trust in the Lord with all thine heart never rely on what you think you know. But somethings are so obvious to some and not to others.

    and this is all you needed to post....

    the parables are the way
    The Lord will be looking for His reflection

    without the parables on your mind and heart
    His reflection won't be there

    Does that mean children born to Orthodox parents who die at birth before any baptism performed cannot call their children Orthodox?
    King James Bible
    For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.

    It is more important to be baptised with the Spirit or Water?

    Water baptism does not save, it is the baptism of the Holy Spirit which is the real mark of God upon the believer.

    What burdens some faiths lay upon the children of God. But not those taught by God, for they know the truth and the truth makes them free.

    The Pharisee knew the way but barred others from entering.
    Being saved is not about putting ourselves first it is about putting God first.

    you are correct, the baptism is more than water baptism. the orthodox baptise in the name of the father the son and the holy spirit. and in the baptism the person accepts god and becomes part of the church. if there is a case that a baby might die before it is baptised, then someone must perform a different kind of baptism that is short in duration. it is called ''αεροβάπτισμα'' aerovaptisma I don't know the english transaltion. it's a special kind of baptism for babies whose life is in danger.
