Hi Karen_47

Without further miscommunication, I’ll just say that I don’t suppose any questions would be off limits.. who is God, why does God, how does God.. or even how could God.. perhaps asking difficult questions is akin to “wrestling with God” which yields a blessing.. but the church would have me believe that asking difficult questions is akin to “attacking” God.

Questions lead to answers and true answers destroy the doctrine of the church. “The truth will set you free.”

Proverbs 25:2
It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.

My friend , no matter what decision you make, All is of God
Truth # 12  Believe and Obey

Fear of the unknown is a terrible thing. People like us who were control freaks
all our lives don’t like to not know what’s ahead of us. We want to see what’s
on the path before we take it. It’s scary. Sometimes when I go walking in the forest, I think about dangerous animals or people in there and I stop and
think about it, I talk to God and tell Him I’m nervous and I shouldn’t be because He said Do not Fear and yet I fear. I take a deep breath, put one foot in front of the other and do it to prove to our Father that I trust Him, I love Him and I will do it because He did it for me. He layed down His life for me.
I always think of Him in the garden the night before His crucifixion, how He sweat blood. I think in this life we are going to spiritually sweat blood too.
He trusted His Father and we will trust our Father also.
Listen, if you do go to live with your mom and sister you will be bringing
them light from the Father of Lights. Just what they need and I would say,
all part of God’s plan for you and your family. I will pray for you .
In Christ Pamela

Pamela saw my post and sent me this pm. I asked her if I could add it to the other wonderfull spiritual wisdom, because it could very well help another confused person.

Hi Pamella,

Some more wise and spiritual advice, right from the Father. Thank you so much for putting your personal perspective on it too.

My problem cannot compare with the sacrifice Jesus made. Im frankly quiet ashamed I did not consider this myself.

I can clearly see my answer was right in front of me,  in the completeness of his sovereignty.

Thank you Pamela
Romans 15:13

Psalm 46:1, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” Run to Him, lay down your weapons and fall into His arms. Acknowledge that He is God and that He is exalted in the earth. Be still and know that He is God.

Dear Jesse and Arion, What I should have asked you guys for was some spiritual wisdom. I can clearly see there is a weakness in my faith.

Thank you, this shines much light on the matter.

You can't make the wrong decision with this simply can not.  One of the things that I learned thru Ray's teachings [not from his teachings] is that God is sovereign in his creation down to the smallest detail.  Whatever decision you end up making is the one that you were supposed to make.  There are not two or three options...there is only one.  Before I came to know real bible truths this verse always stood out to me;

Rom 8:38-39  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

It was always like yeah, I know these things and believe it but I also knew that my sins separated me from God and when we sin God know longer hears us so in reality I believed that although none of the things mentioned in the verse can separate me yet I believed that I, myself was able to do that [old man, free will teaching].  I was in error.  The decision that you make whatever that decision is, is the one you were supposed to make from the foundation of the world.  Pray and do what gives you peace and then rest in that as what you were supposed to do.

There is one thing that a pastor of mine said 25 years ago although he was the head of a denominational church and whose teachings were full of error was,

Never doubt in the darkness what God has given you in the light.

Despite the error of his teachings yet I believe his counsel to be true with his statement.

Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Im sure some of you have been in a similar situation. Being faced with HUGE life  changing circumstances, and not be able to make a decision out of fear. I've prayed on this matter for months, leaving it in Gods hands, because,  finally, after all these many years, I have been given the faith to do.

I'm in such a warm loving, and peaceful place with my heavenly father, he recently brought me out of the darkest time of my life, into new light and my fear is that if I make this decision without him, I will loose what I've so mercifully been blessed with.

I will tell you it is a family matter,  involving my mother, her care and wellbeing. This decision would involve my moving into a very emotionally toxic invironment, which is my family.

I know the outcome will be whatever he wills it to be. I'm so emotionally involved, I fear I won't even know when God answers.

Dear friends, please keep me in your prayers.

May the Lord bless and keep you close

Hi Karen_47

I apologize. There must have been some misinterpretation in my reading of your statement about questioning... and some misinterpretation of my question to you. I haven’t experienced a miscarriage or lost a child.

Without further miscommunication, I’ll just say that I don’t suppose any questions would be off limits.. who is God, why does God, how does God.. or even how could God.. perhaps asking difficult questions is akin to “wrestling with God” which yields a blessing.. but the church would have me believe that asking difficult questions is akin to “attacking” God.

Questions lead to answers and true answers destroy the doctrine of the church. “The truth will set you free.”

Why Karen_47?

Please tell me why you believe we should not ask or expect response??

Answer:  Largeli, it is not as though God is silent about these things. But, as a mere human who does not see God work things out no matter how horrible it is. We have his word to proof he is doing it. Bad. Or Good.  So, that is why. I have no other answer to that. If God has spoken to you about why he took your Miscareged child then you got a response. But, you still know it was his will to do so. Right?  I speak on the old testament times. We see and know the answer there. Ofcourse, the people back then didn't'. But God still allowed it. That's what I mean. I see the asker to this question saying it in a vague way like! Angry. And that was my response.

I have both asked and received response

Comment: God responses to certain things, yes. But, often times he doesn't'. Like the commanding killings of infants in old t. Times.
Remember * I was only saying it in a stern statement.

 (ask and you shall receive). And my faith is stronger for it. Perhaps my faith wasn’t even real until I gained the courage to question. How could one end up here at bible-truths without having questioned “how could a good God send billions to burn in Hell?”..

And thankgoodness you questioned that. God is a good God (father) for leading you to truth!

Dennis I have a question for that one, bible says God respects no man, how is it then He can give anybody this wisdom and not everyone. Bible clearly shows He respects some people over others. This pastors word tell me he is mad at God for something.

Dear Ricky,

Though the "respecter of persons" verses are often used by people to show that God doesn't "play favorites," they are talking about how Gentiles are not inferior to Jews when it comes to being eligible to receive salvation, nor are Jews superior to Gentiles when it comes to the Judgment.

Acts 10:30-35

30 And Cornelius said, Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and, behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing,

31 And said, Cornelius, thy prayer is heard, and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God.

32 Send therefore to Joppa, and call hither Simon, whose surname is Peter; he is lodged in the house of one Simon a tanner by the sea side: who, when he cometh, shall speak unto thee.

33 Immediately therefore I sent to thee; and thou hast well done that thou art come. Now therefore are we all here present before God, to hear all things that are commanded thee of God.

34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

Peter realized God is "no respecter of persons" because this revelation was coming from a Gentile, a Roman centurion.

Galatians 2:6-8 (NIV)

6 As for those who were held in high esteem—whatever they were makes no difference to me; God does not show favoritism—they added nothing to my message.

7 On the contrary, they recognized that I had been entrusted with the task of preaching the gospel to the uncircumcised, just as Peter had been to the circumcised.

 8 For God, who was at work in Peter as an apostle to the circumcised, was also at work in me as an apostle to the Gentiles.

Acts 15:7-9

7 And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.

8 And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us;

9 And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.

Romans 2:6-11

6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:

7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:

8 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,

9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;

10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:

11 For there is no respect of persons with God
