Hello Ralph,
Thanks for the good advice.
Just curious, how do these folks that you correct receive it?
Do they after learning of a better way of understanding continue in the better way and correct themselves as they practice the leading you have provided?

Has the correction born fruit of the spirit? Or has the correction just been politely ignored?

I have four children and a few good friends who are close to me as well, and mostly I notice very little personal interest on their part in sharing the good news with others.

My conclusion is that for them it is not the time of their enlightenment.
I have decided to accept God's will in these matters, knowing that God will handle it at the appropriate time.

Hi Bob,

For the record, I am not implying that I am a know-it-all and no longer need correction. I have received much of it and still do from The Lord. The person I am referring to, an adult, seems unable or unwilling to discern right from wrong in the simplest of matters. I continue to pass on the wisdom I have been given, but it appears to fall on deaf ears. As you say, it is not their time of enlightenment.

Regarding the other topic.  This scripture came to mind:

Romans 2:28-29
28 For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; 29 but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.

If this is the spiritual definition of a Jew, then what is a gentile spiritually speaking?  Something to ponder.

Very true.

Thanks for the reply.
So then are we gentiles or are we Jewish proselytes or some other category of believer.??

Christ didn't instruct the Gentiles while on planet Earth but he has instructed many millions of them spiritually. 

John 16:7-11
7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. 8 And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 of sin, because they do not believe in Me; 10 of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; 11 of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

I don't know the particular details of your relationship, but I have someone close to me as well and I correct and instruct this person often.  For me it is not possible to do anything else.  For me, to tell this person the truth is kindness, love and respect.

Could you help me with something ? If someone close to you lives in a way you know to be against God and His way , but they donít recognize God or things of God, and they want your love and respect - and you do love them. You know God has not opened their eyes yet or drawn them to Himself.  How do you, specifically, love the person and honor God? You canít say it doesnít matter, how they live, what they do, but Christ spent virtually no time telling gentiles how to live.  He offered himself as living water,  He made no excuses for anybody.  He was kind to the extreme.  What would you say he did with the unbelieving and how do we respond when loving the sinner ( understanding that if we say we have no sin we deceive ourselves ).  Thank you for listening.

Good day Arion,
Reading your message and noted your location in Michigan and thought that you were not too far from me in Northern Indiana.
Then checked the google map to find that Marquette is almost in Canada.
So how is the winter weather in Marquette?

Does being on Lake Superior moderate the temperature to some degree?
I am really looking forward to the time when we will be together in the Kingdom.
Regards, Indy Bob


Hey Bob;

Usually winters are pretty bad up here but so far it's been very mild and I'm looking out at bare ground right now.  Not too many years ago we measured 320 inches of snowfall for the season at the airport so you never know.  Lake Superior is a large heat sink so living right by the lake early in the season we are warmer than other places and while others are getting snow we are getting rain.  The opposite end of the spectrum is in early spring inland can be getting up to sixty degrees away from the lake and because we are getting the relatively cold air off of the lake we will be in the forty degree range.

Pretty blessed up here with a relatively low population as my township is 180 square miles and has a population of only 700 people and lots of fresh water and abundant wildlife.  I'm still working (retire next year God willing) a security job for a remote compound and I have seen moose, bear, wolves, coyotes, bobcat, lynx, pine martens and even river otters.  I once had a bear look in the window at me while I was having my morning coffee so you never know what you are going to see.  A couple of our people saw a mountain lion.  We've caught them on the trail cameras but I've been here for over 20 years and haven't seen one so I know they are around.

As long as you can bear the cold and snow its not a bad place to live whatsoever....especially if you don't like crowds.   ;D

We have no need to dwell in fear here because we know that God will be All in all.  Why is fear needed ?  Is it fearmongering to believe that the transition from this eon to the next is difficult ?  I donít think so.  Be prepared in season and out of season because the days are evil.

I always thank my God for you because of the grace that He has given you
through Christ Jesus. In Him you have been blessed in every way. You have been
blessed in all your speaking and all your knowledge.This proves that what we told you about Christ is true.Now you have every gift from God while you wait for our
Lord Jesus Christ to come again. He will keep you strong until the end so that on
the day when our Lord Jesus Christ comes, you will be free from all blame. God is faithful. He is the one who has chosen you to share life with His Son Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Thanks be to Our Lord, Jesus / Jehovah.

Our turkey day was last month but every day is thanksgiving and we have so
much. God has blessed us greatly with gold only few know about.
Arion you are not far from me either, Iím in Nova Scotia,  Canada. The sun is
blazing here and still insects flying around, people are still golfing. We havenít
had snow yet. I- Bob , being in the Kingdom is all I think about anymore.
Will be so awesome, we can say , ď finally Lord, AT LAST. ď:D

HAPPY thanksgiving to you Porter, Wendy and all who love Godís word.
