The Wrong Man

Man in the pulpit had something to say

Told me the wrong thing, led me astray

Lookin’ at the wrong man. Wrong man.

Friend said she’d help me always be strong

The bond that we shared wasn’t that strong

Lookin’ at the wrong man. Wrong man.

I can do it myself, I don’t need no one

I guess that’s why I feel so alone

Lookin’ at the wrong man. Wrong man.


Hebrews 12:2 (a)  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of [our] faith;

  1. Установить место пожара Отправь вас дух, Спаситель спасения форме грязь Показывать Ваш раб пользу Вчера был день, когда я был одинок Теперь я в Присутствие Всевышнего Ну да Бог наш, Он потребления огня И пламя сжечь в глубине души Да, Бог наш, Он Он достигает потребления огня, так и он тает на этот холодное сердце камень. Вы понять, что внутри вас есть огонь? Действительно ли вы пытаться пусть он сожжет?

    How guilty do you think you would have to make a person feel before they seperated themselves from God?
    Do you think it depends on the person?
    How do you gauge such things?

  2. Hi Voice,

    First question: Yes! It is the spirit of God indwelling me. 🙂

    Second through fourth: Once attached, one cannot seperate themselves from God–thank goodness! It was His grace that bought us, His grace that keeps us–it is inescapable and once we are his children, we are always his children.

    Romans 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 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.

    John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any [man] pluck them out of my hand.

    John 10:29 My Father, which gave [them] me, is greater than all; and no [man] is able to pluck [them] out of my Father’s hand.

    Keep in mind, that God, as our parent, never turns his back on his children, even when they turn their backs on him.

    Good to hear from you as always, Voice.

    Paul

  3. Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.

    Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

    Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.

    Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.

    Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:

    For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

    Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,

    Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

    When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.

    Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.

    So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)

    Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.

    But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

    For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;

    While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

    For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.

    But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?

    And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?

    So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

    For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.

    For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.

    And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.

    Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:

    Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.

    For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.

    There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.

    For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.

    Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

    For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
