Why even “little” sins can be destructive for souls designed for eternity.
In this episode, it says “we only increase the sufferings of hell.” What does that mean?
Would you mind highlighting some of those texts plsaee Alan? I know there are many times Israel is mentioned in the Bible, but I sincerely believe that the Bible teaches clearly that our assumption of who is Israel is the thing in error.The thing I often didn’t see past until fairly recently is that the Israel of the Bible is not an earthly nation as other nations. Rather they are a people who have been chosen by God, and led into a dwelling place that He has provided.The Israel of God have Abraham as their father, for he believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness. As a result God poured out His blessing upon him through covenant promises. But as Joel points out clearly from Galatians 3, those promises were held captive by the Law until the One who is truly the seed of Abraham came, who is Christ. Hence the true Israel of God.Christ is the only true Israel, and all whose lives are hidden with Him in God. And when He appears who is our life, we will also appear with Him in glory [Col 3:3].You may find many verses talking about Israel in the Bible, but there is clear enough teaching to show that Christ and those found in Him are the only true Israel of God.God bless,John
This is a wonderful way of explaining how God works. Not only does it make sense, but it’s easy to transfer the knowledge to others. Thank you for allowing God to use you in this way.
