It's No Secret
"Do you want to be healed?"
I text Bible verses to two men on a daily basis.
Exhortation/Encouragement...depending upon the Spirit.
Like all of us in some way, both need healing.
Like all of us in some way, I often wonder if they really want to be...
No, I do not understand the Biblical paradox of predestination/volition.
I have a hard enough time trying to understand peanuts.
Yes, I do believe in predestination.
Yes, I do believe in volition.
Considering predestination is more about His business than mine, I concentrate on volition.
And unless proven wrong by somebody who actually reads the Bible more than Arminius or Calvin, I'm gonna take full responsiblity for the consequences of my choices and urge others to the same.
I ain't gonna blame predestination or poor potty training for the consequences of my bad choices.
But, uh, I do give God all the praise and thanks for the graces that have overcome the consequences of my bad choices...and urge others to the same.
I am convinced until proven otherwise by the book not books about the book that it's no secret in the book when it comes to experiencing His better in time before His best in a heavenly kinda way.
It's simple if it's by the book.
It's no secret.
Lest we forget, God wants everybody to be saved in an existential as well as eternal kinda way.
The texting follows...
Jesus asked, "Do you want to be healed?"
1 Samuel 2:30: "Those who honor Me, I will honor. Those who despise Me shall be lightly esteemed."
2 Samuel 23:5: "Is not my house right with God? Has He not made with me an everlasting covenant, arranged and secured in every part? Will He not bring to fruition my salvation and grant me my every desire?"
Read 1 Samuel 2:30 again.
Do you see the connection to 2 Samuel 23:5?
Again, hear Him ask, "Do you want to be healed?"
Who is lying?
Who is telling the truth?
Who, then, is healed?
Blessings and Love!
