Christian Passions Forum







NOTE: JULY 2019 - We recently re-activated the forum after (MANY) years of it being locked down. You will see a lot of old forum posts because this site has been up and active for over 10+ years. Feel free to begin posting again and even replying to old threads that seem interesting. Posts appear in the forum area and on your profile page and on the Community page, so posting in the Forum is a great way to let other members get to know you a little bit, and it definitely helps with visibility in the site. Have fun!

God tests us so we can experience victory. He walks in faith and believes we will win every test. He is like a proud parent who tells their child to "Go out there and show them what you can do," expecting them to win.

God allows us to enter into faith combat so we can see His deliverance and victory over our adversary. As we are faithful where we are (the test), God will give us a larger sphere of responsibility.

The larger the task ahead -- the bigger the test required now. God does not test us to hurt us or defeat us. He does it because He loves us too much to put us into a position of responsibility which would be too much for us, where we would be put to shame.

JAMES 1:2-3 NKJ
2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials,
3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience

.It takes a deep fellowship with Jesus. There will be times that you will either 'feel' or 'think' you are really ready. That's when the Lord can NOT use you. When you feel inadequate and are pliable in His hands, then that's when He can mold you and use you to the best. Youo must wait on the Lord for your CALLING and not jump out ahead of Him because YOU feel you're ready

`Very well put, You must wait on the Lord's calling! Because when we jump into what we feel we are ready for it was not in God's plan. God Bless your wisdom.

`what drawed me into this forum was the title and on that I will comment.Yes many are called as happens with almost every child.They will tell of someone calling their name as happened to me when I was twelve yrs. old.Yes few are chosen but what slaps me upside my head is how soooooo many will stand up to say no he didn't call you.It's as if they are passing judgement on another human being by pretending to be God himself,how arrogant is that?When someone says that they have a call on their lives or that they have been called by the spirit verbally then instantly some congregate in a huddle so to speak and come to the conclusion that it just ain't so while still others will look at the person and actually take into account what they have as possessions and will base their assumption on that alone,how arrogant is that?I have seen it and heard it from a pulpit instructions on if you believe you are called then you need to sit quietly and not declare it out loud especially in that church because that church was already taken,can you believe that load of nonsense?What happened to prayer for answers?What happened to seeking Gods will through prayer?Have we grown so very much as humans in our faith that we are beyond prayer or is it saved for only the real emergenies?I have seen and heard the elders of a church call for prayer for the sick and feeble but yet bypass the prayer issue when it comes to such magnatudes of life like if the person who says their called should be used in that church or helped to start a church of their own or even if they really are called?In the word of God prayer was a vital part of existence and it was a mandatory move before any other move especially in battle and especially in uncovering the liars and false leaders.Jesus Christ is the chief cornerstone of the church how can I not go to him in prayer about all things concerning the church(the body of Christ)?How can I hope to live in his will if I never ask his will about things concerning me or that will impact my life somehow?How can I determine who is worthy to be called by grace into the faith to help others like me and maybe even to help me?The word says you have not because you ask not so how do you ask the Lord for something?gbu all

`Many are called, few are chosen means that we are all invited to be Christians but some christians fall back along the way (Back slide) and so do not enter the Kingdom of heaven.
