celafoe, if a person alien to faith wants to fathom words given In 17"' And.......tongues", and in 18,"' they........recover, "'in common parlance, how would you put them ? I think, Christ defines the characteristics of a true believer, right ?
celafoe- Thanks for the answer. I would only like to mention for those out there that this does not mean that Christ is replacing the Father. Our Father in Heaven is still God.
Harishprasad- these signs are acts of love and proof of God's presence as they are not possible with out the presence of the Holy Spirit in the person. and we are to be known by our love & judged by our fruit. too bad all believers dont have
celafoe- I agree

2Cor5:18-19 "GOD reconciled us to HIMSELF by JESUS CHRIST...To wit GOD was IN CHRIST reconciling the world unto HIMSELF!"
What part of that don't u understand? "ONE SPIRIT" operating in ANY "GLORY" (JESUS CHRIST) HE desires;simultaneously too!
Sri T (the mystic) says
Sri T- I just wondering if this re-enforces the idea that Christ is a King with all authority? Thanks for your answer.
Eric Dierker says
Eric- I a bit confused here. What two women are you talking about? You lost me here. The verse I mentioned is at the end of the book of Matthew. Thanks.
Sorry there I made a leap. I put 8-10 right along with 16-20. I do kind of see it as one message. Certainly the women had know authority to tell the Apostles what to do.

sorry but you are incorrect, the ONLY link between God and mankind is the MAN CHRIST JESUS.
Hi Celafoe!, I think I get this but it seems like it is more clear to say: The only link mankind has with God is Jesus Christ. The thought being that God is not restricted as are the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ not restricted.
Simply apply what I have said to the Life of Jesus, the Christ. If it's relevant, use it. If not, let it go. I seek only peace for us. Your long answer was a very nice one.
eric-- I choose always to use scripture and do not try to make up reasons for it, but only to UNDERSTAND it correctly
1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,
manatita44- My understanding of the bible is God gave ALL authority in heaven and in earth to Jesus Christ. Therefore, I do not know where you draw the idea of "they". To my knowledge this idea of "they" does not come from the Holy Bible. Thank you.
I hear you Celfoe,
Matthew 19:26 - But Jesus beheld [them], and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
Seems to me that that statement means there are no restrictions on what God can accept. Yet you do.
eric- if you are going to use scripture to debate me then you are going to have to learn to use it "in proper context" the one you quote is in regard to "salvation" not what men can do in His Name
I COR 12! CAN'T ALL "SEE" (JN 4:24) THERE'S ONLY "ONE SPIRIT" W/MANY "GLORIES?"
I COR 12:12 "FOR AS THE BODY IS "ONE" ..BEING "MANY" R "ONE" BODY: "SO ALSO IS CHRIST?"
IF U DON'T "SEE" THIS, U DON'T HAVE "SPIRITUAL EYES!"
