Subject: God knows all things
the Lord Jesus being the Good Pastor knows all things and languages is no exception to these things. the Lord can speak to us in our own language depending on how we are believing and trusting Him. Faith and confidence in the Lord Jesus surpasses all barriers in coming into the kingdom of God.

[color=darkblue]God’s revelation vs. human perception Christianity is divided because of human perception on the word of God --the same word but different meaning. Example: “Destroy this temple....” Does our Lord adopt His “language” (temple, referring to His body), to the “language of man” (temple referring to the edifice)? How many people “see” this glaring example? If Jesus followed the “language of man,” He should not have said the following: Joh 10:4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the [size=18]sheep follow him: for they know his voice[/size]. Joh 10:5 And [u]a stranger will they not follow[/u], but will flee from him: [u]for they know not the voice of strangers[/u]. Who among Christian sects do not claim the Lord Jesus is their Good Pastor? But why can they not agree on the meaning of the word in the Holy Bible? The cause: human perception. Until we humble ourselves like “babes” (Matt. 11:25), and remaining a Natural Man (1 Cor. 2:14), spiritual goat in the eyes of God, we can never comprehend the difference. The Scribes and Pharisees must have claimed being guided by God in their doctrines that is why many people followed them. Yet our Lord called them: Mat 23:26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also. Were the Scribes and Pharisees able to distinguish between the “inside and outside of the cup and platter,” the "language" of our Lord? Jesus would not have called them, “blind guides leading the blind...” if they did. However, showing His love for them, He sharply rebuked them, that “their blind eyes would open.” Mat 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? Some benefited from this! Saul of Tarsus, a Pharisee, later even became His Apostle known as Paul; and the Scribe in Mark 12:28 both felt the love of our Lord and they followed Him. “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away,” says, our Lord. [size=18]HOPE[/size] is one of the three virtues of faith, HOPE, and charity.

"Who among Christian sects do not claim the Lord Jesus is their Good Pastor? But why can they not agree on the meaning of the word in the Holy Bible? The cause: human perception."   Truly brother, you hit the pot at the end  of the rainbow. There is really no one in the Christian sects who do not claim that the Lord Jesus is their Good Pastor and it is because of this human perception within them that cause this disagreement on the meaning of the words they read in the bible but not on the words that do come out from the mouth of the Lord for they hear nothing at all -- only on what they read. But for a fellow like you who profess  to perceive more in the spiritual, you can easily deduce the fact that if the Lord Jesus is their Good Pastor. The way I look at it, here should be no disagreement between them with regard to the teaching/s that the Lord Jesus will teach them even if same refers to the words of the bible because the Lord speak in vague words for them who do not believe Him but clearly and comprehensible for them who believe in Him. This is the reason, too, why I said previously " rejoice in the Lord always ". Blessed are they whose delight and hope in life is the Lord Jesus.   f[b][i]il3232003 <bibletalk@purechristianity.org>[/i][/b] wrote: [quote]God’s revelation vs. human perception Christianity is divided because of human perception on the word of God --the same word but different meaning.

correction, the following should read... But for a fellow like you who profess  to perceive more in the spiritual, you can easily deduce the fact if the Lord Jesus is their Good Pastor indeed.   The way I look at it, there should be no disagreement between them with regard to the teaching/s that the Lord Jesus will teach them even if same refers to the words of the bible because the Lord speak in vague words for them who do not believe Him but clearly and comprehensible for them who believe in Him   my sincere apology to all.   adlem [b][i]Adlemi Sotnas <bibletalk@purechristianity.org>[/i][/b] wrote: [quote]"Who among Christian sects do not claim the Lord Jesus is their Good Pastor?
