You know that has Christians we will face all sorts of trouble.  It will be difficult and challenging.  But Jesus lets us know this, 1 Let not your heart be troubled: believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I come again, and will receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.  4 And whither I go, ye know the way. John 14:1-4 (ASV)

We have the hope that Jesus will be back and that we are going with him.  Our stay here is brief but we MUST do whatever we can to spread the gospel before the end times arrive.  In an earlier passage it says that Jesus was troubeld in His spirit, so that must mean that there is a Godly troublet hat should concer us, perhaps the condition of the world and the salvation of souls, and an ungodly trouble that gets us stuck in the mire of everyday life and keeps us from fellowship with God and our misson. So let us listen to our Lord and not be troubled about the trivial.  As He says, believe (trust) in Him.

God Bless

 Here is my opinion, most Christians have no clue of the Power inside of them. They look, act and feel powerless. We have the POWER of God's Spirit inside of us, yet they get sick and can't get healed and have unbelief, wrong beliefs and doubt that it's God's Will for them to be healed. If they were arrested for being a Believer then there wouldn't be enough proof to convict them. This is not me condemning instead it is meant to stir Believers up. EveryDay should be like a day during the Acts. Miracles should be ocurring everyday. Healings should be even more often. Instead we wait to do, what God told us to do. The Gospel should not even be preached unless miracles follow. That is walking in carnality, believing our five senses over what Jesus told us to do and gave us the power to do. Walking in the spirit is believing God over the five senses period. We expect sickness, death and poverity, our Christian culture is molded around it. Persecution, is poor me/ or look at me I'm a Christian being persecuted. Oh it's such a hard battle Satan has such power! Satan only has the power we permit him to have. God's will for Believers is Health, and Posterity. We limit God, He is constant, we do not seek Him, with our whole heart. Yes, we are saved the minute we truly accept Him into our hearts. Yes, God does not impute our sins to us. Here is one of the many missing pieces, many many Christians do not have the Fruits of the Spirit. They are still trying to conquer the world through their own wisdom and do not surrender completely to God. They blame things on God, well if it's His Will for me to be sick, then I guess it's for my own good............Wake up Believers! Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and HIS Righteousness and all these things will be added unto you. The Kingdom of God is inside of you, His Righteousness is Christ. Quit gathering in groups and just praying Lord if it is your will then heal so and so and do as HE commanded and Heal the Sick. We have the POWER that raised Jesus from the Dead (inside of us), yet we fear the Devil. We have to pray by the tens of thousands to do anything, prayer requests are on every Christian tv station. Ask and ye shall recieve, seek and ye shall find. So put your face in the Bible and LEARN from the Holy Spirit. It does take time and effort, The Holy Spirit changes us from the inside out, when we put some effort into it. We use the word Hope as in a question mark. Hope is not waiting to see if it happens, Hope is confident expectation. Faith isn't believing when it is seen. Faith is knowing it has already manifested in the Spiritual Realm and knowing that it will manifest in the physical. Quit believing your five senses and believe on Christ's Finished Work. Quit believing that you can do it without God, come to the end of yourself and let God's Abilities Work through you! Get stirred up, get mad at the devil and mature as Believers so the majority of Believers will start seeing what should be seen.

Amen Saul.  You said it better than I could have.  Thanks you for the response.  Believers need to understand exactly as you have said.  You even fired me up brother.

 Hi I was watching something on a a Christian channel and they were talking about how Christ sees people as rags I guess it also says that that is the sinners sin because it says that you are not rags because I call you friends now. It also says who cares about other people's sins??? Sin seems to really only be against god because only really god can forgive sin is that true???

Not sure I understand the question?

It sounds like the question is stating that you can only sin against God and not others. That is definitely not what Jesus and others have told us in scripture about sin. Yes, you sin against God. You also sin against other people in thought and deed. Those are sins of commision. You also sin against God and others by not doing what you know to be rght, as commanded in God's Holy Word. Those are sins of omission.

You saw this on a Christian tv show? We are warned that there will be false teachers in the end times. We are in the end times even though nobody can say when the end will come. It sounds like what you heard could be classified as false teaching.

That is what I thought the question was and that is absolutely correct.  We sin against people as well.  Thank you.
