I recently looked back at responses given to questions when I "initially" came to HP, and some of my responses have "changed!"
I BELIEVE the more one reads the Bible, the more he/she "GROWS" or "change from glory to glory" (II Corinthians 3:18)! Scripture tells us "FAITH" comes by hearing and hearing by the WORD of GOD" (Romans 10:17) and it is "FAITH" that makes actions manifest in the flesh! In Matthew 17:20 JESUS SAID "...If you have "FAITH" as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place, and it shall remove; and NOTHING shall be impossible unto you." Does GOD LIE? Did HE not say "WE" shall say unto our mountains "Remove yourself and it shall remove?"
The problem is, MOST don't know ALL of THE PROMISES and the authority we have been given to use HIS POWER for "NOTHING shall be impossible unto you."
I have heard people say "Ignorance is bliss" which is one of the biggest LIES ever told! Scripture says "My people perish for lack of knowledge" (Hosea 4:6)! Therefore, I AGAIN ask "STUDY" for yourselves (II Timothy 2:15) to find all of THE PROMISES GOD HAS GIVEN in HIS WORD! The ONLY WAY "Ignorance is bliss" is when you "STUDY" things of the world and not the WORD of GOD! It's as though you have a million dollars in the bank (THE PROMISES) and "too lazy" to go and get it! Now there's "IGNORANCE!"
I've had MANY discussions on HP that the WORD of GOD has been tampered with to which I tell you what GOD SAID! In John 16:15 JESUS SAID "All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he (The Holy Spirit) shall take of mine, and shall show it unto you." Again, Does GOD LIE (Numbers 23:19)? Did HE not say *HE* would show it unto you?"
Consequently, we have to follow the LAWS OF GOD (aka "commandments") to be "born again" (John 3:7) by "WAITING" (Acts 1:4) for the "CONNECTION" (aka Holy Spirit) who will "lead and guide us into *ALL* truth" (John 14:26) and "STUDY" to gain knowledge of HIS PROMISES!
Psalms 107:20 "He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them for their destructions."
I love the Bible because it is GOD Speaking (John 1:1) and II Peter 3:9 says "The LORD is not slack concerning HIS PROMISE, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but all should come to repentance."
Do you need to "study" anything else? II Peter 1: 3 says "According to his dive power hath given unto us ALL THINGS that pertain unto life and godliness..."
