THANKS KAT, YOU FOUND 'EM!!  BLESS YOU!  YAY!   :)

So the concept that Jesus taught only in parables so the multitudes wouldn't know.... is actually a parable in itself... relaying how.... the process of how God's supernatural spiritual blinding was taking place and is still taking place today.  I hadn't realized this extra dimension.  Cool!   8)

Thanks to ALL!

Joy, Janice

Bobby

Thank you very much for that quote from Ray. I believe it hits the nail sqarely on the head! What is the link for that excerpt?

In the mean time I am going to re-read the teaching on Winning Souls for Jesus? at link : http://bible-truths.com/souls.htm

I believe it connects to this treasure of Truth!

Peace to you

Arcturus,

The quote is taken from very near the end of the Lazarus and the Rich Man paper.

Thank you Bobby

I plan go and reintegrate that very profound teaching from the Lazarus paper. 

Your post has caused me to go and re-look at the teachings within Winning Souls for Jesus that I am seeing has a direct bearing on the topic currently under discussion.

Peace to you

From : Winning Souls for Jesus.
 
You will never argue anyone into accepting the truths of Godís Word. As salesmen are often taught: "You might win the argument, but loose the sale," so donít argue. And this: "He who is persuaded against his will; is of the same opinion still."

Peace to you

Hello ciy,

I know what you mean about the working and leading of God in one's life.  This summary of your testimony is encouraging.

Thank you, we all have an unique jouney. 

I may have gone opposite of you.

We all have a One on one relationship with the Lord, it is not like He deals with us as a group, or is creating us in a "one size fits all" fashion." I believe it is best explained by the Scripture in 1 Corinthians 12;

1 Corinthians 12

12For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

 13For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

 14For the body is not one member, but many.

 15If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

 16And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

 17If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?

 18But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.

 19And if they were all one member, where were the body?

 20But now are they many members, yet but one body.

 21And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.

 22Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:

 23And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.

 24For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked.

 25That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.

 26And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

 27Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

Now some may say that this is only defining the different gifts of the Spirit but we know Scripture is not one dimensional but it is deeply layered with the treasure of His Truths buried within, revealing secrets to more than one answer to one question only.

  I got successful then got completely distracted in Bablyon.  Put most of my time and effort in to having a "Christian business", lost it all and more, so now people think I am a nut and my crazy beliefs have made me a failure.

 ;D That in itself should testify that you are on the right path!

  I know that I was led by the spirit into what I have done the last 7 years and that everything had to happen exactly the way God caused it to happen or I would not be in this blessed position of knowledge and faith that I now possess.

Absolute agreement here, the narrow path that is written about does not mean we are all marching single file experiencing the exact same things but rather this narrow path is a unique and personal route He elected us to walk through with all the pitfalls and lessons specifically designed to create us to be prepared for the particular (peculiar?) office He has in store for us as the Body of Christ doing the work willed and desired by the Father.

Grace truly does abound.

Amen!

CIY

His Peace to you,

Joe

Does counting this story as a parable change its meaning or its teaching points?Peace

YES!!
