  1. Read here If you want to stop worrying!

    (Isaiah 40:27)- “How can you say that the Lord does not see your troubles?

    (Isaiah 49:15)- “Can a woman forget her nursing child?”(16)- “Surely, I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands.”

    (Luke 12:24)- “Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!

    (Luke 12:25)- “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? (Explanation: He is asking you, can worrying add a day to your life; Making you live longer? He is saying no. Worrying cannot do that for you, but HE CAN! And easily at that!)

    (Luke 12:26)- “And if worry can’t accomplish a little thing like that, what’s the use of worrying over bigger things?

    (Luke 12:27)- “Look at the wild flowers and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are.”

    (Luke 12:28)- “And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?”

  2. lol! The Holy Spirit IS NOT a who, the Holy Spirit is an it; please explain to the class why an omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent GOD NEEDs a third PERSON to do what HE is perfectly capable of, [and is already engaged in doing via HIS nature] doing HIMSELF?

  3. Wrong statement the Holy Spirit only came after Jesus died? John the Baptist had Holy Spirit Luke chapter 1 vs 15 your teachings are all wrong the spirit and Mary had it chapter 1 verse 35? Also look at verse 67 Zechariah was filled with Holy Spirit PS change your teachers? Treatment around the 12-minute mark

  4. Rueben,…. You may fool many but you will not fool the reformed crowd. Take your experiences, your idolatry, and your heretical opinions out of here. We have the WORD OF GOD.

  5. The Holy Spirit is part of the Godhead. The Godhead is Father, Son and Holy Spirit, three distinct Persons yet in perfect unity and harmony, forming one God. As regards our Salvation, God the Father willed and purposed it. God the Son took on human form and carried that will out to the full satisfaction of the Father. God the Holy Spirit is the power whereby we come into the good of salvation and Eternal Life 'in Christ Jesus. All persons in the Godhead are active in our salvation with man have no part to play except for his sins.
