Prayer-Who To Pray To - 2

Bible Questions Answered:
“I not sure just who we pray to, or does it matter?...”
John/ Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania U.S.A.

Bible Answer:
Bible Texts:

The example we must follow, is the example given to us by The Lord, Himself.

Matthew 6:9 KJV
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Jesus said we are to pray to our heavenly Father.
The wonderful truth is that our God is a triune God. Three distinct personalities that are “one” in eternal unity.

Then it may be said that when we pray to one we are praying to the others as well.
Christians, pray to The Father, in Jesus name by the power of The Holy Spirit.

When we ask a request to The Father, and we ask in Jesus name, our Lord says He will do it.

John 14:13,14 KJV
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that The Father may be glorified in The Son.
14 If ye shall ask any thing in My name, I will do it.

Notice here, that when you ask The Father for a request, Jesus says He hears, and he will do it, so that The Father will be glorified.

So when you pray to The Father, yes we are praying to The Lord and Holy Spirit, as well.

(Model prayers by the Apostle Paul.)
Romans 15:30 NLT
Dear brothers and sisters, I urge you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to join in my struggle by praying to God for me. Do this because of your love for me, given to you by The Holy Spirit.

II Corinthians 13:14 NLT
May the grace of The Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of The Holy Spirit be with you all.

Praying to Jesus:

Acts 2:21 KJV
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of The Lord shall be saved.

I Corinthians 1:2,9 KJV
2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both their's and our's:
9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship* of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

*Fellowship-Greek: Koinonia (Koy-nohn-ee-ah): Partnership, to communicate, communion, fellowship.

Yes we may pray to The Lord Jesus, but it was our Lord's desire to bring us to The Father!

Romans 8:15 KJV
For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received
The Spirit Of Adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
Galatians 4:6 KJV
And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth The Spirit Of His Son into your hearts, crying,
Abba, Father.

Praying To Our Heavenly Father:

John 16:23 KJV
And in that day ye shall ask Me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask
The Father in My name, He will give it you.

What do the words “in that day” refer to?
Jesus was speaking of the day when He would rise up from the dead and be seated at the right hand of The Father in heaven (John 14:1-3,12,19,20/ John 16:5,10, 16,23-27).

John 16:24-28 KJV
24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in My name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
25 These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of The Father.
26 At that day ye shall ask in My name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:
27 For the Father Himself loveth you, because ye have loved Me, and have believed that I came out from God.
28 I came forth from The Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to
The Father.

Dear Christian, we are to go to The Father in prayer asking our requests in Jesus name, through the power of His Spirit.

Ephesians 5:20 NLT
And give thanks for everything to God The Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Bible Lesson: Prayer's Of Jesus: “Of Such Is The Kingdom Of Heaven.

Bible Lesson: Prayer's Of Jesus: “Of Such Is The Kingdom Of Heaven.”

Location: Judaea.

Lesson: God Blesses Child Like Humility, Innocence, And Purity.

Bible Texts:

Matthew 19:13-15 KJV
13 Then were there brought unto Him little children, that He should put His hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.
14 But Jesus said, Suffer (permit) little children, and forbid them not, to come unto Me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
15 And He laid His hands on them, and departed thence.

I Peter 2:1,2 NLT
1 So get rid of all evil behavior. Be done with all deceit, hypocrisy, jealousy, and all unkind speech.
2 Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment,

Matthew 18:1-6 KJV
1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
2 And Jesus called a little child unto Him, and set him in the midst of them,
3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in My name receiveth Me.
6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Psalm 8:1,2 NLT
1 O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens.
2 You have taught children and infants to tell of your strength, silencing your enemies and all who oppose you.

Want to know what heaven Is like?
Stare into the face of a child.

Matthew 19:13 KJV
Then were there brought unto Him little children, that He should put His hands on them, and pray:
and the disciples rebuked them.

Jesus heard this and put an end to their egotistical stupidity.

Matthew 19:14,15 KJV
14 But Jesus said, Suffer (permit) little children, and forbid them not, to come unto Me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
15 And He laid His hands on them, and departed thence.

Matthew 20:20-28 NLT
20 Then the mother of James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to Jesus with her sons. She knelt respectfully to ask a favor.
21 “What is your request?” He asked. She replied, “In your Kingdom, please let my two sons sit in places of honor next to you, one on your right and the other on your left.”
22 But Jesus answered by saying to them, “You don’t know what you are asking! Are you able to drink from the bitter cup of suffering I am about to drink?” “Oh yes,” they replied, “we are able!”
23 Jesus told them, “You will indeed drink from My bitter cup. But I have no right to say who will sit on My right or My left. My Father has prepared those places for the ones He has chosen.”
24 When the ten other disciples heard what James and John had asked, they were indignant.
25 But Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them.
26 But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant,
27 and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave.
28 For even The Son Of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give His life as a ransom for many.”

Humility, Innocence, and Purity:

Psalm 19:13,14 NLT
13 Keep your servant from deliberate sins! Don’t let them control me. Then I will be free of guilt and innocent of great sin.

7 When Jesus noticed that all who had come to the dinner were trying to sit in the seats of honor near the head of the table, He gave them this advice:
8 “When you are invited to a wedding feast, don’t sit in the seat of honor. What if someone who is more distinguished than you has also been invited?
9 The host will come and say, ‘Give this person your seat.’ Then you will be embarrassed, and you will have to take whatever seat is left at the foot of the table!
10 “Instead, take the lowest place at the foot of the table. Then when your host sees you, he will come and say, ‘Friend, we have a better place for you!’ Then you will be honored in front of all the other guests.
11 For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

3 This great choir sang a wonderful new song in front of The Throne Of God and before the four living beings and the twenty-four elders. No one could learn this song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth.
4 They have kept themselves as pure as virgins, following The Lamb wherever He goes. They have been purchased from among the people on the earth as a special offering to God and to The Lamb.
5 They have told no lies; they are without blame.

Christ Our Example:

Zechariah 9:9 NLT

Kingdom Of God/ Kingdom Of Heaven

Bible Questions Answered:
“I am having a problem with two phrases in the bible, the kingdom of God and the kingdom of heaven. Are these the same or different?
Bonnie/ Portland, Oregon U.S.A.

Bible Answer:
Bible Texts:

The Kingdom Of God. Is Mentioned some 69 times in our New Testament. The Kingdom Of God refers to God's presence and power entering the life of the believer.

John 3:3,5-8 NLT
3 Jesus replied, “I tell you The Truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.”
5 Jesus replied, “I assure you, no one can enter the Kingdom Of God without being born of water and
The Spirit.
6 Humans can reproduce only human life, but The Holy Spirit gives birth to spiritual life.
7 So don’t be surprised when I say, ‘You must be born again.’
8 The wind blows wherever it wants. Just as you can hear the wind but can’t tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you can’t explain how people are born of The Spirit.”

Our Lord, of course was referring to the entrance of The Holy Spirit, entering into the heart of a believer.

Jesus answered the Pharisees.
Luke 17:20 KJV
And when He was demanded of the Pharisees, when The Kingdom Of God should come, He answered them and said, The Kingdom Of God cometh not with observation:

Romans 14:17 NLT (The Apostle Paul.)
For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in The Holy Spirit.

The Kingdom Of Heaven.
The Kingdom Of Heaven, mentioned some 32 times in our New Testament,  is a Messianic phrase, referring to Christ's coming Kingdom.

Matthew 18:23 KJV
Therefore is The Kingdom Of Heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.

Matthew 25:31-46 NLT (Christ's Millennial reign.)
31 “But when The Son Of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit upon His glorious throne.
32 All the nations will be gathered in His presence, and He will separate the people as a Shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
33 He will place the sheep at His right hand and the goats at His left.
34 “Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by My Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world.
35 For I was hungry, and you fed Me. I was thirsty, and you gave Me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited Me into your home.
36 I was naked, and you gave Me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for Me. I was in prison, and you visited Me.’
37 “Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink?
38 Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing?
39 When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’
40 “And The King will say, ‘I tell you The Truth, when you did it to one of the least of these My brothers and sisters, you were doing it to Me!’
41 “Then The King will turn to those on the left and say, ‘Away with you, you cursed ones, into the eternal (lake of) fire prepared for the devil and his demons.
42 For I was hungry, and you didn’t feed Me. I was thirsty, and you didn’t give Me a drink.
43 I was a stranger, and you didn’t invite Me into your home. I was naked, and you didn’t give Me clothing. I was sick and in prison, and you didn’t visit Me.’
44 “Then they will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and not help you?’
45 “And He will answer, ‘I tell you The Truth, when you refused to help the least of these My brothers and sisters, you were refusing to help Me.’
46 “And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go into eternal life.”

I Corinthians 15:24-28 NLT
24 After that the end will come, when He will turn The Kingdom over to God The Father, having destroyed every ruler and authority and power.
25 For Christ must reign until He humbles all His enemies beneath His feet.
26 And the last enemy to be destroyed is death.
27 For the Scriptures say, “God has put all things under His authority.” (Of course, when it says “all things are under His authority,” that does not include God Himself, who gave Christ His authority.)
28 Then, when all things are under His authority, The Son will put Himself under God’s authority, so that God, who gave His Son authority over all things, will be utterly supreme over everything everywhere.

Hebrews 10:26

Bible Questions Answered:
“Paul says that if we sin after knowing the truth there is no pardon for sin, but what about the grace of god?..”
Alvaro/ Granada, Spain

Bible Answer:
Bible Text:

Hebrews 10:26 KJV
For if we sin willfully* after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

*Willfully-Greek: Hekousios (Hek-oo-see-oce): Voluntarily: wilfully, willingly.

Hebrews 10:26 NLT
Dear friends, if we deliberately continue sinning after we have received knowledge of the truth, there is no longer any sacrifice that will cover these sins.

Hebrews 10:26 ERV
If we decide to continue sinning after we have learned the truth, then there is no other sacrifice that will take away sins.

Hebrews 10:26 Mounce Reverse Interlinear New Testament
For..gar if we..hēmeis deliberately..hekousiōs persist in sin..hamartanō after..meta receiving..lambanō  the..ho knowledge..epignōsis of the..ho truth..alētheia, there is..apoleipō no longer..ouketi any..apoleipō sacrifice..thusia for..peri sins..hamartia,

The answer to this dilemma, of willful sin versus the grace of God, hinges upon the following.
Are all sins the same?
Yes, all have the same result, judgment!
We are not saying little sins versus large sins, such is nonsense, and not found in The Word Of God!

Inherited: Born under, inherited by birth.
Willful: Deliberate sin, that is by choice.
Ignorance: Sin done in innocence, that is, lack of knowledge or understanding of sin.
Omission: Things that we are called to do, that we don't do.
Besetting: Assailing temptations. Harassing, constantly attacking temptations. (Romans 7:14-25 NLT)

Romans 7:14-25 NLT
14 So the trouble is not with the law, for it is spiritual and good. The trouble is with me, for I am all too human, a slave to sin.
15 I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate.
16 But if I know that what I am doing is wrong, this shows that I agree that the law is good.
17 So I am not the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it.
18 And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. I want to do what is right, but I can’t.
19 I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway.
20 But if I do what I don’t want to do, I am not really the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it.
21 I have discovered this principle of life—that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong.
22 I love God’s law with all my heart.
23 But there is another power within me that is at war with my mind. This power makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me.
24 Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death?
25 Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. So you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God’s law, but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin.

Inherited, Willful, Ignorance, Omission, Besetting.

Inherited Sin: Deliberate but by Adam. Mankind is under Adam's curse of sin, and yet, all of humanity fails as he did.
Willful Sin: Deliberate.
Ignorance Sin: Not Deliberate.
Omission Sin: May Or May Not Be Deliberate.
Besetting Sin: Not Deliberate. (Romans 7:14-25)

By this list, we may plainly see some sins are purely by deliberate choice, whereas others are not!

Willfully/ Willingly, same meaning:
I Peter 2:5 NLT (Paul)
Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you. Watch over it willingly*, not grudgingly—not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God.

*Willingly-Willfully-Greek: Hekousios (Hek-oo-see-oce): Voluntarily: willfully, willingly.
(Editor's note-The opposite of grudgingly is gleefully)

Full of exultant joy; merry; delighted.

Hebrews 10:26 KJV
For if we sin willfully* after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

If we as Christian people, sin “gleefully,” “ after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,”

And why is this, the Apostle Paul stated....
Hebrews 6:4-6 NLT
4 For it is impossible to bring back to repentance those who were once enlightened—those who have experienced the good things of heaven and shared in The Holy Spirit,
5 who have tasted the goodness of The Word Of God and The Power of the age to come—
6 and who then turn away from God. It is impossible to bring such people back to repentance; by rejecting The Son Of God, they themselves are nailing Him to the cross once again and holding Him up to public shame.

A person who sins (Not just one sin, but their practice-way of life) willingly/ willfully,” (gleefully) deliberately, has no desire to come to The Lord.
All those who go to hell, have committed the unpardonable sin.
They have willfully and deliberately decided to crucify Christ afresh.
In others words, they are glad to see His crucifixion, they do not want Him.

A Christian person, who has fallen victim to besetting sins, who asks The Lord for forgiveness and strength to do better, is not lost, but in the grace of God!

Anyone who has committed the unpardonable sin, has no desire to ask God for forgiveness, for
The Holy Spirit is “not,” living in this person.

Now the Apostle sums up all these thoughts by saying the following:

Romans 6:1-23 KJV
1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into His death?
4 Therefore we are buried with Him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of The Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection:
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.
8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him:
9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
10 For in that He died, He died unto sin once: but in that He liveth, He liveth unto God.
11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.
21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
23 For the wages of sin is death; but The Gift Of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
