    Yet another pathetic testimony from JS that we have sins in need of forgiveness and unrighteousness in need of being cleansed contrary to that which Paul writes.
    2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

    Paul defines the word of truth as the gospel of your salvation (1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV, Ephesians 1:13 KJV). Now, study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed by rightly dividing it!

    So what do you make of Paul's words here?:

    "Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God" (2 Cor.7:1).

    It certainly seems that Paul thought that we played a part in regard to "perfecting holiness." And we can understand that is true by what Paul said here:

    "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service" (Ro.12:1).

    I think that you fail to distinguish between a Christain's "standing" before God (sitting together with Christ in heaven) and a Christian's "walk" upon the earth. Things which differ are not the same.

    Paul is just sayin' that it makes sense to live clean and holy; it's our reasonable service, not a commandment Jere. can i call you Jere ?

    So are you denying that these words of Paul are not speaking of "commandments" which are given to us, commandments from the Lord Jesus?:

    "For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God: That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified. For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness" (1 Thess.4:2-7).

    You may think that living holy is not a commandment but Paul would not agree with you.

    If you want to call me something then why not my name which is Jerry?

    Yep, and David will receive it at the second coming on the day of atonement.

    The Body has it now.

    No, David had it then, as witnessed by his own words:

    "But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered" (Ro.4:5-7).

    Do you honestly think that David's faith was not counted as righteousness while he walked the earth but it will be at the second coming?

    That makes no sense.

    At this present time, there is only one gospel that saves into the BOC.

    The question is whether there will come a time in the future when the BOC is complete, and then salvation saves into something other than the BOC?

    God Bless America

    Indeed, sister Whombora.

    I believe the next to be filled up is the 144,000. The little flock made up part of that number.

    Rip David's words out of their context, people; see if you too do not end up at your own notion.

    Fact is, David having lived under the Law; his words were in the sense of that scene in the movie "A Bronx Tale," where that precious little Roman Catholic boy expresses his joy and relief at being able to confess his sins and by that, being able to start over free of his misdeeds as a child, from the previous week.

    The understandings of a child are precious.

    In an adult, however; especially one who would that others kow-tow to his every attempt to rule over their faith - not so!

    It's not that we are in need of forgiveness of sins! We are ALREADY FORGIVEN ALL TRESPASSES!

    Colossians 2:13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

    When will you get that through your head?
    2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

    Paul defines the word of truth as the gospel of your salvation (1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV, Ephesians 1:13 KJV). Now, study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed by rightly dividing it!
