A new site

After loosing my password for a long time, I recovered it.
I change the site from .com to .org since it is not a commercial site after all.

I divided it to sections and according to your questions I will add more subjects.

I'm currently working on figures of speech used in the Bible and on a complete HOW TO read the Holy Bible.

I do work more on the new site since I changed my Web hosting provider.

A couple of friends asked me why I did this site, so I decided to write a page explaining my reasons, which you can read.

It is a little hard to put all my notes on line, but I'm working on it...

I also made the study on Abigail into a pdf that you can download from the web site now.

The essence of Christianity

My friendTodd shared with us last week. I'll get his permision and add the sermon to the site. Here are my notes.

2Tim 2:7
The Lord gives the understanding. You cannot have the knowledge of God if He has not revealed it to you.
There is a wall between flesh and spirit.

Luke 24:25,26,27
We may wish that we were there but we are! Jesus is alive and he opens our heart for all that it is written about Him, even now.
He opened their eyes, not themselves.
They want Jesus to stay with them.
He is the bread of life.
Christ is giving us the bread.

Jesus is alive, he teaches us. 'Think what I say, but He gives the understanding.' Whatever we know about God comes from God.

Gal 1:11-12
Paul did not go to school to learn about Him, he had a relationship with Him. He was not tought the gospel it was by revelation.
None can understand the Holy Spirit without a spirit. e.g. Elijah's servant and the armies of God.
Until He opens our eyes we are blind.

3:4 by reading. the knowledge of God is revelation.
it leads ... to the whole truth
the knowledge of Jesus Christ is increased (NOT the knowledge of the scriptures) via the spirit.
It makes contact with the flesh (our mind is flesh after all)
The comforter leads us not to Himslef but to Jesus

We should seek Him, ask Him
For every step of faith we make He makes 2 steps of grace!

He will talk to you. The voice of the Lord (not His writings, the scriptures, but His voice) can be recognized. He is willing to listen to us. 'He dwells in the praise of His saints'... 'Enter into His gates with thanksgiving', we need to praise Him more.

Until He gives the Kingdom over to the Father, He still lives, is the mediator, the Lord and works in this earth for God.

The essence of Christianity is to have that contact (flesh-spirit) that imposible one ;)

I liked it very much.

abound in everything

2 Corinthians 8:7 (New King James Version)

7But as you abound in everything--in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all diligence, and in your love for us--see that you abound in this grace also

Yesterday at fellowship we talked about this verse.

It is interesting that it says you abound, not I wish that you abound. Paul takes it for granded that those believers do abound in all 5 things. He exorts them for one more.

That's the verse we read about this subject: Note the abundant-abound pattern.

Philippians 1

5And being confident of this, I know that I shall remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy of faith, 26that your rejoicing for me may be more abundant in Jesus Christ by my coming to you again.

Mark 11

22So Jesus answered and said to them, "Have faith in God. 23For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, "Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 24Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

Many quote this passage without reference to verse 22 which puts everything in context. If a zillion people believe and pray that the earth is flat, no matter how strong they do it, it will never happen. Possitive thinking and believing does not change things. Faith in God and his word is the necessary ingridient. We can claim a promise written not our own imagination.

1 Thessalonians 4

1 Finally then, brethren, we urge and exhort in the Lord Jesus that you should abound more and more, just as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God;

1 Corinthians 12

1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant:

Chapter 1

I thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given to you by Christ Jesus, 5that you were enriched in everything by Him in all utterance and all knowledge, 6even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you

Ephesians 1

7In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace 8which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, 9having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself,

Colossians 2

6As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, 7rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it[b] with thanksgiving.

Romans 15

14Now I myself am confident concerning you, my brethren, that you also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.[g]

It give a purpose to all knowledge, not just for us but to share it.

2 Timothy 2

15Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Ephesians 5

15See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

1 Thessalonians 3

12And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you

1 Thessalonians 4

9But concerning brotherly love you have no need that I should write to you, for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another; 10and indeed you do so toward all the brethren who are in all Macedonia. But we urge you, brethren, that you increase more and more;

Philippians 1

9And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment

1 John 3

23And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another, as He gave us[e] commandment.

2 Corinthians 8

1 Moreover, brethren, we make known to you the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia: 2that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded in the riches of their liberality.
13For I do not mean that others should be eased and you burdened; 14but by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may supply their lack, that their abundance also may supply your lack--that there may be equality.
Chapter 9
8And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.
11while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God. 12For the administration of this service not only supplies the needs of the saints, but also is abounding through many thanksgivings to God,

Philippians 4

10But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last your care for me has flourished again; though you surely did care, but you lacked opportunity. 11Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: 12I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13I can do all things through Christ[b] who strengthens me.
19And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Romans 15

13Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

ΠΡΟΣ ΚΟΡΙΝΘΙΟΥΣ Β΄ 8 (1550 Stephanus New Testament)

7αλλ ωσπερ εν παντι περισσευετε πιστει και λογω και γνωσει και παση σπουδη και τη εξ υμων εν ημιν αγαπη ινα και εν ταυτη τη χαριτι περισσευητε

faith is pistis - not believing the verb but as a noun
speech is logos - the word of God
knowledge is gnosi - not wisdom
diligence is spoudi - used both for study and haste
love is agape - not eros or fileo
grace is charis - used specificaly for giving and receiving here. Very close to 1 Peter's 2 definition of grace

τουτο γαρ χαρις ει δια συνειδησιν θεου υποφερει τις λυπας πασχων αδικως
19For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully.

While this is the only other definition-like verse in the scriptures (the other one being Heb 11:1 " now faith is..." and it says "now grace is..." there is no way to understand that it talks about grace in the English text.
It is in harmony with the corinthian's verse, since giving material things does bring grief and is suffering a lot of times when there is no abundance.

I am thinking on expanding it a bit and add it as a page to the site. It will be more than one page a guess.
