Psalm 103 ►
10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

I think it's much simpler than that. Everyone is predestined by God to do something with their lives. Until I was about 25, I ambled through my life unthinkingly. Then I 'found' orthopaedic surgery and developed, not only an interest in the subject, but a passion for it. To such a degree, I was ultimately able to be on the foremost forum for joint replacements and offering advice and support to members by the thousand. Before long I had advised and supported more than 30,000 members over the 12 years I've been there! If that wasn't a God-ordained mission, I don't know what is! I doubt there are many nurses who have dealt with as many patients in that period of time. I was also frequently aware of the presence of the Spirit when writing replies to members. What a wonderful way to spend one's time in the service of the Lord, always keenly aware of the years of preparation that He has given one in order to accomplish it.

Quote from: Pete on January 17, 2018, 09:42:27 pmWell, it looks like we'll be online for at least another 6 months! The bill has been paid, so thank you once again for your continued support of HGO.

Hey Pete... Don't mean to get into your business, but do you need some $ to keep the lights on.
Let me know.
General Discussion / Re: How the Holy Spirit speaks
Last post by LittleRocketBoy - January 02, 2020, 09:30:08 pm
I know this sounds weird, but sometimes the Spirit speaks to me in:

1. Movies. Yes I enjoy going to movies. Not nasty ones, but popular movies. Odd but I have left the theater in tears as the HS uses elements of the show to open my heart to certain things. Mostly intercession for the nation, the people, the church.

2. Music. Sometimes secular. I find the Lord will change the words to some secular song so that it becomes a Christian song of faith.

Here we are again... 2020. Steelers in the ditch. Lost the entire offense. Almost made the playoffs with the 3rd stringers, practice squad, and hotdog vendor as QB!

I believe the potential is there. The new man is there... sinless and the righteousness of Christ. The flesh remains and the mind must be there. But I believe all the tools are there.
Until then... confess your sin, trust your advocate, He if faithful and just to forgive you and cleanse  you of all unrighteousness.

Quote from: Bryan on May 30, 2017, 09:07:50 pmSo in another forum that we all used to frequent quite a bit a topic has become more prevalent that I would like to discuss here.

Can a Christian be sin free?

Apparently because I believe we can be I am a Pharisee.

I just don't see why the Holy Spirit who lives within every believer would say that those who walk with him will not satisfy their fleshly desires (Galatians 5:16).

I don't see God wasting breath when he said "Be ye Holy for I am holy."  It isn't an arbitrary command.  Nor did he say if it is convenient or not too difficult then be holy.

Now call me crazy, but I believe with all my heart that the God who tells me do something will give me the ability to do the thing which he says.  If I let him.

Sorry, I am not trying to rant or ramble but this has become a very passionate topic for me as of late and I just cannot fathom how powerless Christianity has become.

Now to be clear, I am not saying if we sin we are lost.  I am saying that we must walk in the light as he is in the light, but if we should do as Peter and take our eyes off Jesus and start drowning, he will lift us up and forgive us when we ask him.  Then we can continue our fellowship with him.

I think the lamb of God has taken away all our sins. I believe He forgives all our inequities.
Had this discussion with the Lord a few years ago.

I brought up some of the things mentioned. Such as taking Him for granted:
"Even that..."

Habitual Sin:
"Even that..."

Forgetting about you during the day:
"Even that."

"I know that you are but dust and grass  blown by the wind. I know your weaknesses, your failures, your wrong attitudes and unfaithfulness... even those things have been paid for. There is no sin greater than my blood. There is no failure that defeats my faithfulness. The darkness does not overcome the light that I shed into your and around you. Believe in me. Trust me. I will never leave you. I am faithful. I am the faithful one who forgives your sins. I am the faithful one. Trust in ME."

Retired recently (a couple years ago) and so kind of got lost in a lot of area. We moved back home and are still struggling to get back to a home atmosphere. I found HGO again and will try to participate.
Thanks for being patient and faithful.
