2 Corinthians 4:2, "But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God."
2 Corinthians 4:7, "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us."
1 Thessalonians 1:5-, "For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake. And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost: So that ye were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia. For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing. "
1 Thessalonians 2:13, "For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received [it] not [as] the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe."
2 Timothy 2:15-21, "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some. Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work."
2 Timothy 3:16-17, "All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."
Also read Hebrew 13 (emphasis: verses 7-17)
AFTER reading all of the scriptures, what is your answer - are you taught by man or by the Holy Ghost?
Do you understand that you can continue to listen to your doctor and be addicted to prescription medication listening to man's education, knowledge and degree. When you are listening to the mind set of this world than you don't have the mind of the Kingdom. Healing is in the Kingdom. Please give me your analysis of the following: (Man's knowledge or God's knowledge?)
MEDICAL ERRORS, THE FDA, AND PROBLEMS WITH PRESCRIPTION DRUGS
Medical Errors - A Leading Cause of Death
The JOURNAL of the AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (JAMA) Vol 284, No 4, July 26th 2000 article written by Dr Barbara Starfield, MD, MPH, of the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health, shows that medical errors may be the third leading cause of death in the United States.
The report apparently shows there are 2,000 deaths/year from unnecessary surgery; 7000 deaths/year from medication errors in hospitals; 20,000 deaths/year from other errors in hospitals; 80,000 deaths/year from infections in hospitals; 106,000 deaths/year from non-error, adverse effects of medications - these total up to 225,000 deaths per year in the US from iatrogenic causes which ranks these deaths as the # 3 killer. Iatrogenic is a term used when a patient dies as a direct result of treatments by a physician, whether it is from misdiagnosis of the ailment or from adverse drug reactions used to treat the illness. (drug reactions are the most common cause).
You put your trust in the knowledge of man and his education and degree. No different than a seminary degree. It is not about the seminary degree it is about the wisdom, knowledge that the Holy Spirit imparts within the believer whether they are seminary trained or not. Study to show yourself approved with the Holy Spirit.
Brother the Holy Spirit can and will only pull out of a person what was put in...You are right we all should study to shwo our self approved so we can rightly divied the Word of God.
You sound very immature and childish with your comments. Please show some reserve as a so-called minister. It is well understood that you deny the power of the Holy Spirit. Do not attack those who operate with the power of God. I would also encourage you to refrain from mentioning physical attacks upon the anointed of God. You are moving into the supernatural and you don't have any idea of what you are saying or what you are dealing with.
This how many pastors/preachers on this site have been educated:
THIS IS THAT Seminary also has non-resident courses. These courses are done on audio and related textbooks and when completed mailed to the THIS IS THAT office in Some City, State. One of the things THIS IS THAT is doing to help students benefit more from their learning experience is to train and place facilitators in strategic places around the country. Facilitators will not teach courses on the same level, or higher level than they have obtained themselves. These facilitators are capable of providing prospective students with information about THIS IS THAT. For more information call the THIS IS THAT office and we will be happy to supply a name and telephone number of a facilitator in your area.
I believe that seminary is one form of education. Many people have been educated by parents, pastors and through self-study. I bet you have your resume already prepared and will recite your school of education and degree as soon as you get a chance. We have already gone over that Solomon was educated but still asked God for wisdom and knowledge. Spiritual wisdom and knowledge come from God and not man.
The same as the Holy Spirit is foreign to you. That is the point of the discussion. Holy Spirit or Man?
God is omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent. Man is not. Man is limited and what man cannot do like heal cancer, God can. Why is this so hard for you to understand? It is not the Holy Spirit and man. It is all the Holy Spirit, without the Holy Spirit man is nothing. It sounds like you want some credit for I don't know what. Without God your nothing.
You miss the point Brother Watson. Man's knowledge is fallible. The Holy Spirit is infallible. You ignorance and denial of the Holy Spirit shows that you are a modern day Sadducee and doctor of the law. They were enemy to Christ.
You sound like the 7 sons of Sceva. Shut up man. You are like a child with no power. The devil doesn't even take you serious. I have enjoyed you today Brother Watson. I have to tend to some other business.
