I don't get as ticked at you Shelby, as I do the book you get this from.
But neither are worth the energy you expend getting "ticked", dear Gumby... and as always, peace to you!
You can blasphame the son who is life, but you better not blasphame the spirit. I thought the two went hand in hand?
Matthew 12:31, 32; Mark 3:29; Luke 12:10
BTW....I was kidding about the rum and peyote as I'm sure you know.
Of course. But "inquiring minds" wanna know... so, I gotta tell 'em...
Basically as you have been told before.....people get upset that you seem to get told things by christ your lord yet all the others here do not make that claim.
When have "all" EVER made that claim? Has it not only been a few, a "remnant", when it has be professed?
They feel like the lord is partial in that he tells you things and not others.
Yes, even Peter took that "trip" once. And was told where to get off...
John 21:21, 22
Why only you?
Oh, goodness, dear Gumby! First, it is NOT "only" me! I am just one of the most "vocal" is all. And that's only because I'm either very brave... or very stupid. No, seriously, my vocalness (or should I say, "typing-finger-ness") is because... I am indebted. It is the only thing I can DO... other than "fast" in the manner of Isaiah 58:6, 7... to show him that I love him for what HE... has done... and yet does... for ME. He has forgiven me many things, dear one, many things... and yet forgives me many more still. He provides for me, cares for me... and loves me. Greatly. What in the WORLD can I do for him? Nothing, other than to let others know that he IS alive... and speaks... by sharing WHAT he speaks to me.
And so, you have it wrong, dear Gumby. I am not a "glorified" one... but a SLAVE. Do you understand this? True, I find great joy in my... "yoke"... it is indeed refreshing. But you... and many others... have it quite backwards:
Luke 8:41-43; Acts 9:4, 16
Thus, if there's anything of "note" about me, it is that I know how great my debt was... how much love it took him to forgive it... and that I LISTEN... when he speaks... and I obey. To the best of my ability. He tells me to speak... I speak.
And please know that he speaks... to ALL, dear one, including you. The question is... whether or not WE hear... and when we DO... do we put FAITH in "the thing heard" and LISTEN?
Is there scriptural proof that he does this sort of thing?
Yes. Acts 2:17, 18... and others...
Well, I would think that HE would be the best reference, wouldn't you? And you can always ask him. Of course, you would have to put faith in what you "hear"...
If so....please explain WHY only some.......or rather with this forum.....only you are special in this way.
Obviously, you haven't read ALL the threads on this forum. Others claim the same "gift". Now, whether they word things such as I am directed to is another story. But you'd have to ask them about that...
Don't get mad at me shelbmeister
Oh, my dear one... mad over what? You are asking honest, legitimate questions... to which you have a right to expect a response. You are not trying to trip me up with deceitful traps, are you? What kind of servant, then, would I be if I were to get mad over such a thing?
or I'll call for backup
I bet you would!
(I just know we've been through this before )
And may go through it yet again. So long as you are "seeking" dear one, I have no reason to "close the door" of my tender compassions on you. If I would give you physical food, how much more should I share with you the provisions given me by my Lord?
The greatest of love and peace to you, dear Gumby. Truly.
YOUR servant and a slave of Christ,
