This is a basic test to see if this will post from the frontend
Adam and Eve committed the first sin, eating from the forbidden tree, (Gen. 3:3-4). Since then the whole world has been Born into sin. Since then, God and Man has been Disconnected until the Supreme being of God, and the Holy Spirit gave us Jesus Christ his begotten son, born from the Virgin Mary.. (Luke 1:27-38) as Shared many times, Jesus Christ came to RECONNECT and Save Mankind through Faith and a personal walk (John 3:16-17 through the Holy Spirit (John 3:1-19 (V 19 maybe looked at as Sin, )
In the Book of John Chapter 3, Jesus Christ talks with a Pharisses named Nicodemus about being Born again (Born with the Holy Spirit to reconnect with God. Verses 1-19 explain how being born twice once in a physical form, the send being in the Holy Spirit, which is that that mankind is given the choice to reconnect with god through Christ WITH FAITH in Christ.) This does not mean that mankind and believers in Christ will never sin again… but it is the way to becoming better and living sinless as we grow in our faith.
The Sinful nature will be there as all mankind makes their own choices, as Adam and Eve Did. Sin will always be there until god Almighty and Satan go up against each other.
Mankind and believers in Christ use the bible to follow Christ through his examples and direction to his disciples and apostles in the New Testament, as well as the old testament… Yet it also a book about History of the world.
Humans are always going to have 2 choices taking the path of adam and eve towards living in sin OR listening to the serpent in the garden of eden or listening to Christ and God Almighty and following them, through the holy spirit being born again and given eternal life with salvation through Christ, and doing away with sin in our lives. We may stumble but God and Christ will always be there for those who believe as long as we repent and pray for forgiveness to God Almighty and Christ.
When the word sin appears in the singular, it usually denotes the sin nature of humanity. This sin nature, which everyone possesses, influences us to sin and is the source of lust. It negatively affects people’s minds (Rom 1:28) Illustration: the sin nature is partially responsible for blinding peoples thoughts and understand, so that they cannot perceive spiritual things (1 Cor. 2:14) although our sin nature continues to operate within us, it was judged when Christ Died (Rom 6:6-7) Application. Until Christ returns , we must live in strength of the new man to overcome the sinful desires arising from the sin nature. We cannot eradicate our sin nature, but we can allow the Holy Spirit to control us so that we do not give in to temptation… (First Reference, Gen. 6:5 Primary Reference Romans 3: cf. Romans 5:12)
Psalm 51:5 (KJV)
5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Romans 1:28 (KJV)
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Romans 5:12 (KJV)
12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
Romans 6:6-7 (KJV)
6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.
1 Corinthians 2:14 (KJV)
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
Mentoring and Building our Faith in Christ
So now you are saved and need help building your faith, what can you do, who you can turn to for help…
We here at My Lords Ministries want to find BOTH Those willing and those in need of help building their faith, sharing the scriptures in times of need, and any personal testimony that may help those building their new faith in Christ.
Matthew 28:18-20 (KJV)
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
(these scriptures stated by Jesus Christ HIMSELF shares that we are to go into the world and share his good news and word of God to 1 another, make new disciples to those who want to share his word to OTHERS)
Proverbs 27:17 (KJV)
Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
(in this verse we see that sharing and helping 1 another with mentoring allows our faith to grow even together)
We acknowledge that these days its hard to maintain our faith and for those new believers and those returning to their faith in Christ its not easy finding ministers and teachers and even churches that can help us… Bible Studies help only to a certain extent, but many new believers have so many questions as they are building their faith… questions that need answers by someone who has and willing to give their time without issue.. Many leaders of churches don’t keep the new believers faith growing, they just leave after a while thinking the new believer will be alright with bible studies and weekly sermons… this is why Mentoring is more important than ever.. as many believers in Christ believe we are in the End Times of the Church Age.
What we here at My Lords Ministries want to do is Pair up those in need with those who can give time to help with questions… questions about where to find the books of the bible, what scriptures can help the new believers right away and how to apply them, accountability to each other in building the new found faith and help it grow so they become stronger, and more equipped to share with their families and friends with scriptures to help back their stance, and what to learn about world history and how it applies to our current times, from historical maps, to how the 12 tribes of Israel are apart of both historical and present times…
We also want new believers to understand the power of prayer to God, and Jesus Christ, NOT MAN… (Catholic Church and other religions) How, praying for each other helps and certain issues… and why prayers are important, praying for salvation of family and friends…
Jesus Christ only taught 13 Disciples at 1 time, with the exception of his sermons where many came to seek him out…asking questions to him in a large environment…
We want to have mentoring on a 1 on 1 or 1 on 5 no more than that for new believers to help each other, and use our site as well, to ask further questions…
