New here :)
« on: November 25, 2008, 11:34:21 AM »

Greetings!

I've only been a forum member for 2 days now, and just wanted to say hi.  Plus, what a joy it was to read Ray's articles on the LOF series and tithing!  I can honestly say I've always had a problem with the idea of serving a God who would sentence billions to burn in an eternal hell, even those who have never heard of His salvation.  How could that be if God is love? That was my thought.

When I found out "Every knee shall bow, every tongue confess" I was reduced to tears of joy when I came to the understanding that they would do so because their eyes will finally be opened to see it all as it has always been in the plan of God. All done "To the Glory of God!"  Exclamation point, mine,,,

I had read that verse, heard it preached, (not)  and never seen it in that light.  How could an eternal hell be "to the Glory of God?" When I saw it would be to His Glory to save all mankind, my mind could hardly take it in, and I know I haven't seen it all in its entirety, but I do believe I've been given a very small glimpse of how Glorious it will be.

Truly, Jesus will NOT fail to be the saviour of the world, to be the Perfect Sacrifice!  To accomplish what God wanted from before the foundation of the world.
Now That's GOOD NEWS!

Funny,(ironic in my carnal mind) how my question of tithing and it's relevance to the New Covenant brought me to so much more.

I look forward to reading and learning more.

Grace and peace.

Welcome to the forum JG.  :)

Thank you for sharing your testimony with us. Many here had the same overflowing joy when first seeing the truth of God reconciling all unto Himself. It's no better feeling in the world.  :D

Hi everybody! I am also new here but have been reading for a few weeks. I was raised in the Roman Catholic church and came to love Jesus even with all of it's vagaries. Went to other churches for about 15 yrs. and realized I was not as well versed in the bible and always had many questions concerning certain scriptures. I enjoy learning here and even like the passion of L.Ray Smith. I read somewhere on this site that he was very ill, is he still? Anyway, I am a talker and grant you I will be saying more, Thank You!

Welcome JG and Judith! ;D
JG,
We all had similar feelings when first learning of these truths.
There is so much more though!! Your relationship with the Father and his Son will get deeper and closer as you come to understand these scriptural truths!!

Hi JG,

I'm glad you have joined us  :)

I know what you meaning when you say, my mind could hardly take it in, and I know I haven't seen it all in its entirety, but I do believe I've been given a very small glimpse of how Glorious it will be.
It is truly a miracle when our eyes are opened and we start to see the revelations of this truth.  But I can tell you it is just the beginning, because these revelations just keep coming.  It is so nice to have like minded people to share these things with.  So I hope you will join in the fellowship and enjoy this little taste of heaven we have here.
