I am going to Australia until the 9th of January and will hopefully be back on the net shortly after my return to Thailand. No, I did not experience the tidal wave or the earthquake.
Hebrews is a good book to read about the saints resting.
Hebrews 4:10 " For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His."
Galations 3:1 O foolish Roman Catholics! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified? 3:2 This only I want to learn from you. Did you receive the Spirit by the works or by Mary or by the saints or by the hearing of faith?
3:3 Are you so foolish? Having begun in the spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh,or by Mary or by the saints.
No one can go to God, but that the Holy Spirit leads them to Jesus. The only reason you are a christian, if you are one, is because the Holy Spirit led you to Jesus. Now you , after being saved want to go to Mary and the saints and pray to them. You were saved by following the lead of the Holy Spirit, and now you dont trust Him even though it was He who led you to Jesus to be saved. You have lost your faith in Him and think He needs help.
Stop grieving the Holy Spirit. Go back and put your faith in Him. Stop saying that He is failing because you in your wisdom dont understand why there are so many denominations. Forget about that and just believe in Him. What does redemption mean. It means to buy back. That means you have come from God. And now you think He is not potent enought to redeem you. God can’t redeem something that was not His.
Dont be dry any longer.
May Chirst mature in your heart
Walk in love
