JUST A QUESTION,… are angels God’s spiritual children?????


MY EARLY MORNING THOUGHTS,……my question to myself is this,..”what do I want and what do I need?”,….hhhhmmmmmmmmm???? In this old life, I have seen, many times, that our wants have a way of getting us all into serious trouble. We neglect our needs many times to achieve our wants. Or, is it just me? In oklahoma we have a saying, “want in one hand, and **** in the other and see which gets full the fastest.” not exactly the most intellectual saying in the world,…but the truth is there. So? What do i need?

It is so easy to become a “christian” because of a fear of “going to hell.” this type of “conversion” (if we dare to call this a true conversion) is absolutely not love based. it is “fear” based. correct? the bible tells us, who have read it, that PERFECT LOVE CASTS OUT ALL FEAR……..

PERFECT LOVE????? Perfect love comes from God only. What He did and has done, and is still doing for us all…….which is, ACCEPTING US ALL. Godly acceptance is NOT BASED ON PERSONAL MERIT, GOODNESS, OR ACHIEVEMENT OF ANY KIND. Period.

There are thousands of scriptures which reinforce what I have just written. WHAT DO I NEED? PERFECT LOVE. WHAT DO I WANT? PERFECT LOVE.

In this godly, complete perfect love, IS WHERE WE FIND FREEDOM. If we DO NOT SEE that we are all free, WE CONTINUOUSLY TRY TO “EARN WHAT IS A GIFT.” This is juust our human nature, and our “natural thoughts” telling us that we have to DO SOMETHING “RIGHT” (righteous) AND SOMETHING “GOOD ENOUGH” for God to love us and accept us so that we may (“if we’re lucky”) earn our way to heaven,……This earning, or buying, or “trading our works for god’s grace” is unnecessary,…it is “because of God’s Grace that heaven is our future,……hhhhmmmmmm…….as I said, these are my early thoughts,……..

A few more to pursue later (THESE ARE JUST LITTLE NOTES SO THAT I DON’T FORGET, AS I HAVE TO LEAVE FOR WORK IN A MOMENT) did the Isrealites in Egypt have to “do anything” for God to have applied the blood to the doorways of their homes while they “slept” to ensure that the plagues passed them by?????????????,……..they were asleep. Many of them had ABSOLUTELY no idea that there was blood applied to their “doorways.” (so HOW COULD THEY HAVE KNOWN OR DONE ANYTHING?) is anyone “seeing” this????? GOD’S GRACE AND MERCY AND LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE APPLIED THE BLOOD,…….does anyone agree????

Now let’s go to the cross…………….AGAIN, GOD’S GRACE AND MERCY AND LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE APPLIED THE BLOOD TO US ALL,………not just christians,…BUT EVERYONE!

IF WE WANT FREEDOM, TRUE GODLY FREEDOM, AND WE SEE THAT WE “NEED” FREEDOM,…..THEN WE “MUST” SEE THAT THE WORK DONE BY JESUS (THROUGH GOD) ON THE CROSS, FULLFILLED ANY AND ALL REQUIREMENTS FOR US TO HAVE SALVATION,…SALVATION???? TRUE FREEDOM. this is what I “need.” This is what I “want.”,…this is what I have,…what I have is what I can give to, or share with others…

Work calls now,…gotta run,…any thoughts??? Please back your thoughts with accompanying scriptures pertaining to WHAT JESUS HAS DONE, PLEASE,…THANKS MUCH,…..HAVE A GREAT DAY!TRUE FREEDOM,…..wants and needs????? « johnedoe.wordpress.com/

Everything God does is for the benefit of his FAMILY.  God’s intent is to develop a family of people who are like Jesus.  In the end, who will be in his family?  Those who LOVE God and FOLLOW his precepts and direction (Rom.8:28).  God is no slacker when it comes to fulfilling his promises, whether it is to our personal benefit or detriment.

December 5, 2012 at 3:43 p12  HEY,….HOW ARE YOU DOING????,…as I write tonight (for a while longer) I think about my faith,…….for me to “follow” precepts etc, I have to know them,….to know them, I have to have learned them,….this is the same with everyone,……would you agree, *****???,………some individuals out in the world are christians, but, they haven’t learned many, if any, scriptures,….as simple believers,…they are absolutely, through basic faith, part of God’s (jesus’) family,…….Faith is what saves,…..correct??? It is not a certain, or specific amount of “faith”,…do you agree,??? (or any one else, for that matter???),

Jesus said that “HE” will write His laws upon our hearts, correct??? He said this “before” He died on the cross and was resurrected,……So,…..in and with His Living Spirit, He has written his laws upon our hearts, as believers (and perhaps all hearts as well),…we are told that IN THE FINAL DAYS, GOD WILL POUR OUT HIS SPIRIT UPON ALL FLESH,…….is this correct???

Are “these” days, the final days??? Did the final days begin when Jesus died? Is this “pouring” synonymous with the “age of grace?” Is one the same as the other?

As a child, I believed in God. A very, very, very young child,….I had heard Jesus’ name, and I believed in Him as well,….simply,….innocently??????? As a tiny child, I was born as a human, thus, as a “sinner”,…it is and was all of our birth nature as humans. we are imperfect. We are fallible. Correct? Imperfect beings. But, through Jesus, because God’s grace and mercy, and love, etc,….we are adopted and or adoptable through simple faith into god’s family? Correct? We do nothing to become saved,….WE ALREADY HAVE BEEN SAVED,……BEING “SAVED” IS WHAT JESUS DID FOR US,……..correct,……did I “get saved” in a church? 

I will say that I responded to the every head bowed every eye closed thing come forward and “be saved” thing,…..but,…I DID “NOT” GET SAVED IN A CHURCH BUILDING THROUGH OR BY ANYTHING THAT “I DID”,……..

I BECAME SAVED THROUGH JESUS DYING ON THE CROSS,…….PERIOD.

DOES ANYONE DISAGREE WITH WHAT I JUST WROTE,….IF SO,….PLEASE SHARE,………..

AS A TINY CHILD OF 3 YEARS, JESUS KNOCKED AT THE DOOR OF MY HEART, I OPENED. I ask, is this possible? Was I “saved” then??? or,…did I (scripturally) need to “follow the steps of some kind of “other” ritual? Ritual? Works? Some “thing” that I had to do?????

When I simply believed in Jesus, as I still do, as that tiny boy, I did not know the scripture about Jesus standing at the door of my heart and knocking. Did I need to know “the scripture” to be saved? Did I need to know any scriptures, to “follow” god (jesus) and “their” (his) precepts??? I have been in God’s family for many, many years now…

Jesus loves me, this I knew,…I knew it through my “conscience”,…I knew this as a three year old boy, because god (Jesus) had written His laws upon my heart,…the perfect Law of Love and liberty,…the perfect love of freedom,…being “saved” was a gift, THEE GIFT, from god and Jesus to all of us,……………….

0r,….do we feel that we “need”,….”truly” need,…..to DO ANYTHING???

The Alpha and the Omega,…the beginning and the end,….thee author and finisher of our faith,…….our life in God’s family, AS HIS CHILDREN…”It is finished”, Jesus said on the cross,…….

We were all made free at that moment,…….2000 years ago,……Now, through spiritual adoption,….we have THE GIFT OF HIS REST,………no LONGER BOUND BY HOLLOW AND DEAD oppressive works,….THESE ARE THE HUMAN EFFORT AND “CARNAL” WORKS which only weaken us, and tire us,……..Jesus did what THE BLOOD OF BULLS AND GOATS COULD “NOT” DO,………Correct???

more soon,…supper time,……..my mother waits,…….

This evening is a miracle and gift in and of itself,….a gift,….and I am thankful for it,…tonight, God is restoring the wasted years of my life, (just as He promised us all that He will do!) as thee “imperfect” person who I am,………………love you all,….toksoon,…

Hi Johnny, thank you for the testimony, it was good to hear some detail of your past.  I don’t know if you are arguing with me or not.  It sounds like you may be, but there is no need.  I believe almost all of what you have said here.  The only difference would be my perception of “doing nothing” to receive God’s salvation through Jesus.  We DO have to open the door, that is something we must DO.  Another thing we must DO is to remain in Jesus.  As we have opened the door, we can also ask Jesus to leave and close the door.  I don’t believe anyone who has actually RECEIVED Jesus will ever reject him, but we must say it is possible for someone to do that.  Other than that our Salvation is secure.  I do not believe that everyone in the world is “Saved” automatically just because Jesus paid the price of their Salvation.  There is too much evidence to the contrary, especially in Paul’s writings.

no arguing at all, *****,…..I love ya man,…..I “do not” like arguing (even though I have done it, and I’m good at it,…which is nothing to be remotely proud of!!!!!!!) for it is probably the biggest rift builder and joy and peace stealer in God’s Family!!!!!!!!!!!!,……..No argument, or arguing,…at all,……Ok??????,………..more in a few

I opend my door many years ago,…..and Jesus has been with me the whole time,…He told me that HE WILL “NEVER” LEAVE ME,…………..NEVER,………

JESUS HONORS HIS WORD, CORRECT, JESUS, “IS” HIS WORD, CORRECT??? HE DOES NOT OPPOSE HIMSELF, NOR HIS PROMISE TO US,……….DO YOU AGREE?

He has “ALWAYS” been with me, and in me,….He has NEVER left me,…he has NEVER forsaken me,….he has gone with me through my entire life,…..even through the very very dark times of my life,….I have been involved in some terrible things in my life, and looking back at it all, I truly believe that….Jesus was with me always, THROUGH WHAT WE CALL, THICK AND THIN.

And now,…because of His love and mercy and patince,….He has brought, and/or, “led”, me here now,…….He is here with me now, in Spirit,….as I have just finished having dinner and conversation with my mother,…

I have “NEVER” had to “RE-RECEIVE” HIM,….why? Because He has never left me,…..through good and bad,…thick and thin,………this is the love of a father,…and the love of a brother,…and the love of a friend,…..more soon

I’LL COME BACK AND ADD SOME STUFF INTO THIS, AS I FOUND INSPIRATION IS THIS CONVERSATION,……..TO MY FRIEND,…I LOVE YA!

my thoughts are leading towards honesty now,……what i mean is this,…was He there when I was molested as a child??? Yes, I sincerely believe that he was. Was he ther when I was molested a second time? Again, yes, I believe that He was,………both time by family “friends? yup, same answer,……am I angry at God? No. Why not? You see, for someone to molest a child, they are exercising their freewill. Freewill is one of the single greatest gifts in this life. What if God would have forced them to not do what they did to me? Then God would have been violating our freewill. If He did so, we would not have freewill,………..along with other things, it was MY FREEWILL WHICH I USED TO FORGIVE THE PEOPLE WHO HURT ME,……….choice. We choose to forgive,…OR NOT TO FORGIVE AS WELL.

Unforgiveness would have left “me” in (a) prison,…not them. My life is about my choices and actions. forgiving everyone who has ever hurt me, or done me wrong, allows me to WALK IN THE LIGHT,……as for God’s “precepts???” one of these precepts is TO FORGIVE THOSE WHO SIN AGAINST US…………..in forgiving,…we will find the good in this life,…as we will then be free. Yesterday is history, to morrow is a mystery, today is the present, which is why it is called a gift,……….JESUS GIFT TO US WAS AND IS FORGIVENESS AND ACCEPTANCE,….when we give freely what Jesus has given us, as He commands us to (precepts) in the right and true spirit, and we expect nothing in return,…then we are free forever, eternally, if you will,………….there is so much more that I would like ot share with you all,….but I must now get some rest, as I have to work early in the morning,…….toksoon,…john e doe
