Holy Ghost

Holy Spirit throughout the Bible

I picked up on these from songs and memory verses.

Psalm 51:10-12 (KJV) Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

Isaiah 63:10-11 (ESV) But they rebelled and grieved his Holy Spirit; therefore he turned to be their enemy, and himself fought against them.  Then he remembered the days of old, of Moses and his people. Where is he who brought them up out of the sea with the shepherds of his flock? Where is he who put in the midst of them his Holy Spirit,

Acts 19:2 (AMP) And he asked them, Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed [on Jesus as the Christ]? And they said, No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.

Daily Service: What do you BELIEVE?

 

DAY 88

What do you believe?

November 2018

Our pastor started a new Bible study centered around knowing your Bible better rather than the traditional salvation tract of most of our Bible studies.

His topic today was Creation or Big Bang.

He had three media sources for the questions arising around the Big Bang theory and the Evolution theory.  Before we launch too far down this road I might point out that there is a major difference in science between a theory and a proven fact.  Theories are a scientific Hypothesis for the way things happened. Unfortunately, we in a worldly sense, have been led to believe that the Big Bang and Evolution are scientific fact when they are, in fact, not.

Forbes.com September 21, 2017 – The Big Bang wasn’t the beginning

https://www.forbes.com/sites/startswithabang/2017/09/21/the-big-bang-wasnt-the-beginning-after-all/#8551f0855df6

Everywhere we look, we find a tremendous agreement between theory and observation. The Big Bang looks like a winner.

Except, that is, in a few regards. Three specific things you would expect from the Big Bang didn’t happen. In particular:

  1. The Universe doesn’t have different temperatures in different directions, even though an area billions of light-years away in one direction never had time (since the Big Bang) to interact with or exchange information with an area billions of light-years in the opposite direction.
  2. The Universe doesn’t have a measurable spatial curvature that’s different from zero, even though a Universe that’s perfectly spatially flat requires a perfect balance between the initial expansion and the matter-and-radiation density.
  3. The Universe doesn’t have any leftover ultra-high-energy relics from the earliest times, even though the temperatures that would create these relics should have existed if the Universe were arbitrarily hot.

Space.com November 11, 2017 – What is Dark Matter

https://www.space.com/20930-dark-matter.html

Science attempts to explain the gaping holes in Big Bang and Evolution theories by theorizing dark matter that they can’t prove either.

God Says:

Genesis 1:1-8 (KJV)
1  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4  And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5  And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
6  And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7  And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
8  And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

 

BBC.com May 18, 2017 We still haven’t found the missing link

https://evolutionnews.org/2017/07/the-human-ape-missing-link-still-missing/

This is a synopsis of that article from EvolutionNews.org

Here is a long, substantive, and interesting article from the BBC — “We still have not found the missing link between us and apes.” It is interesting for two reasons.

  1. It admits that we haven’t found anything that resembles the last common ancestor (LCA) between humans and apes, what author Colin Barras calls the “missing link.”
  2. It admits that it’s hard to even agree on what the LCA might have looked like.

 

What it doesn’t do is admit the even bigger problem: that we don’t even have transitional forms between Australopithecus and Homo. This is a major omission.

What does God Say?

 Genesis 1:26, multiple translations. God created Man in His image.

Source: Biblehub.com

English Standard Version
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

Berean Study Bible
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness, to rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, and over all the earth itself and every creature that crawls upon it.”

New Living Translation
Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”

Daily Service: Holy Ghost?

DAY 63

HAVE YOU RECEIVED THE HOLY GHOST SINCE YOU BELIEVED?

 This is for my young Christian friend at the Naval Hospital. I know you search the scriptures daily and I know we left a conversation open, so I would like to direct your attention to Acts 19.  Please note that these young disciples were believers, but they had not heard that the Holy Ghost had been poured out at Jerusalem.

 Acts 19:1-7 (KJV)
And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism. Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.  And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied. And all the men were about twelve.

Daily Service: There is a God

DAY 60

There is a God

I woke up this morning, You were on my mind Lord.

This song (There is a God) was running through my head.

For all of you who read this please know this: I don’t want to beat you in the head with my Bible.

I just want you to know that there is a God in heaven and He does love you, but he hates the sin that you are in. God wants you to turn to Him and walk with Him.

THERE IS A GOD
There’s a beauty to the dawn, a rhythm to the rain
A silence in the soul that I just can’t explain
There’s a breath of life I breathe, a beating in my heart
A magnificence, a scary sense of what lies past the stars

Beyond what we can see, behind the mystery
I know that it could only be

There is a God, this is the proof
That all around the evidence is speaking the truth
From the center of my soul, to the edge of the universe
Creation is crying out, believe it or not, there is a God

There’s a debt that has been paid, a grace that I’ve been shown
A hope that I’ve been given, that I have never known
There’s a love that conquers darkness, a piece of life in me
There’s a life that’s not just here and now before eternity

Beyond what we can see, behind the mystery
I know that it could only be

That there is a God, this is the proof
That all around the evidence is speaking the truth
From the center of my soul, to the edge of the universe
Creation is crying out, believe it or not, that there is a God

I believe it, I believe it, there is a God
I can feel it, I can feel it, there is a God
And the more I find the less I need to see
I’ve never been so sure, so sure of anything

That there is a God, this is the proof
That all around the evidence is speaking the truth
From the center of my soul, to the edge of the universe
Creation is crying out, believe it or not
Creation is crying out, believe it or not, there is a God

There is a God
