How do we stand on God's promises

    The best way to stand on god's promises is to always take him at his word.  Life bring situations that may want us to stop believing that God is with us, but we must stand firm on His words that plainly say, "I Will Never Leave You Nor Forsake You".  He promises to watch over his word to perform it. So whenever you feel lonely or sad, open the Bible and start reminding God what his word promises you.  If doubt comes to your mind, quickly find passages of faith. When that is hard to do then buy some gospel tapes that lift up your spirits, then continue to release that joy by reading the book of psalms.

      You have to understand the word of God is never-ending and will not return to him unfulfilled.  Jeremiah 29:11 lets us know that not only does he have plans for us, he has an expected end for us.   We have to believe that nothing that we deal with is bigger than or greater than the word and the promise of God.  If we can grasp that, then we know that the season of challenge that comes in whatever form it comes in, doesn't last and that the word of God is eternal for all of us.

        Here is some of god's word for you. smile

        Make ready to slaughter his sons for the guilt of their fathers; Lest they rise and posses the earth, and fill the breadth of the world with tyrants.  (Isaiah 14:21 NAB)

      You stand on no rational ground. Therefore, your mind and your physical presence is completely unstable. lol

      What the New Testament writers were attempting to explain was something "new," the "new and living way" (Heb. 10:20) of the "new covenant" (Heb. 8:8) with the "newness of life" in Christ Jesus (Rom. 6:4). The Greek word charis was the best available and convenient word to try to explain this living reality of Jesus Christ.

      "...in handling the pre-Christian period of God's relations with Israel,...He (Paul) never cites any Old Testament text for grace."

      "...he finds grace written for him in Jesus Christ alone, as though the Lord were God's living letter of grace to the world. Grace like love is verified by him in the Christian order with such exceptional intensity that he never speaks of it until in his survey of human history he comes upon Jesus Christ."

      "It is not...that Paul conceives of God as ungracious during the pre-Christian period; Israel had its religious benefits. But 'grace' is so distinctively the mark of the revelation of God in Jesus Christ that he reserves it exclusively for the experiences of Christian men. In other words, 'grace' belongs to the years A.D., not to B.C."

      Romans 2:4- Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, tolerance and patience, not realizing that God's kindness leads you toward repentance?

      Ephesians 1:7 -In him we have redemption through (Jesus)his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace

      1 Timothy 1:16- But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life.
      Titus 2:11- For the grace of God that brings salvation(Jesus) has appeared to all men.

      1Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.

      2For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

      3For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
      > Heb 4

    Death to Followers of Other Religions

        Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed.  (Exodus 22:19 NAB)

    Yes, stand on god's promise, and obey his every word. lol

    Kill Nonbelievers

        They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman.  (2 Chronicles 15:12-13 NAB)

    Kill False Prophets

        If a man still prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall say to him, "You shall not live, because you have spoken a lie in the name of the Lord."  When he prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall thrust him through.  (Zechariah 13:3 NAB)

    One of the best ways I can see to become an atheist is to expect God to stand by His word.

    I don't mean this offensively, but it's the simple truth.
