Don’t Depend on Others for Prayer

Hi, My name is Angela.

      I am a true believer of the Lord. I have done wrong a couple of time’s with not being on the right path with the Lord.

I have asked the Lord to forgive me for me for letting the enemy get to me. I plan to succeed whole heartedly with keeping the door shut to the enemy from here on in/permanently. I do plan on making the Lord proud of me in every area in my life.

I don’t know much about my father in heaven. That I due plan to change. Knowing that I am very interested in being baptised. I was told that that is one of the thing’s that the Lord would like us to do. 

Is that true?

I am in so dire need of prayer in so many area’s in my life and the life’s of my family. 

         Who ever reads this please find it in your heart to pray for Angela self, Pedro my husband, Sherry my mom, my Grandchildren, Bridget my daughter, Armando my son in law, and Tony brother. Along with Richard.

   The The Thank you!! Sincerely Angela.

Hi Angela,

The best thing we can do for you is point you to the teachings and materials the Lord has given us to publish on this website, which represent the will of God in Christ Jesus that He has made available to all who hear and believe for their salvation. 

Romans 10:13-17 EMTV
(13)  For “whosoever shall call upon the Name of the LORD shall be saved.”
(14)  How then shall they call on Him in Whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of Whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear apart from a preacher?
(15)  And how shall they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the Gospel of peace, of those preaching the Gospel of good things!”
(16)  But they have not all obeyed the Gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?”
(17)  So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.

It’s like the following saying, which isn’t found in the Bible, but nevertheless gives a true principle:

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

If you’re depending on the prayers of others to make things better for you, you will not change, but if you come to the Lord through the ministry of those He sends, He will change you. 

Most importantly, you can’t depend on your own ability and righteousness to make the Lord proud of you in every area of your life. We are corrupt creatures through and through – without any capability within ourselves to please God. Paul summarized what the Word of God says about our true state without Christ:

Romans 3:10-18 WEB
(10)  As it is written, “There is no one righteous; no, not one.
(11)  There is no one who understands. There is no one who seeks after God.
(12)  They have all turned away. They have together become unprofitable. There is no one who does good, no, not so much as one.”
(13)  “Their throat is an open tomb. With their tongues they have used deceit.”“The poison of vipers is under their lips;”
(14)  “whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.”
(15)  “Their feet are swift to shed blood.
(16)  Destruction and misery are in their ways.
(17)  The way of peace, they haven’t known.”
(18)  “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”

What you’re doing is taking a vow that you will be good, but the Lord says not to do that: 

Matthew 5:33-37 WEB
(33)  “Again you have heard that it was said to the ancient ones, ‘You shall not make false vows, but shall perform to the Lord your vows,’
(34)  but I tell you, don’t swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is the throne of God;
(35)  nor by the earth, for it is the footstool of his feet; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King.
(36)  Neither shall you swear by your head, for you can’t make one hair white or black.
(37)  But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’ and your ‘No’ be ‘No.’ Whatever is more than these is of the evil one.

Angela, the Lord has brought you here to hear the Truth – to know Him Who is your Lord and Savior. Read, read, read the website. Start with the Teachings. You ask about baptism. Read about the different kinds here:

Water Baptism 

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit

Let us know if you have any questions.

Testing the “Greatest” Teachers
From: Joseph To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, May 29, 2016 8:51 PM Subject: Inquiry about three great servants of God Dear Sir, I came across your website by chance, and am astonished that you have listed many people that I respect, including Billy Graham, as false teachers.  However I note that three other wellknown servants of God have not been mentioned, and they are R.T. Kendall, George Mueller, and Mother Theresa. Have you studied their teachings, and if so, what is your sincere opinion about them? I appreciate your taking time and effort to consider my question. Thank you. Joseph From: Paul and Victor To: Joseph Sent: Monday, June 13, 2016 7:06 AM Subject: Re: Inquiry about three great servants of God Our opinion doesn’t matter, Joseph – only the Word of God counts. After all, it was the Lord Who exposed Billy Graham to us. Here’s what we have on those others you mention: George Müller: Segment in "A Cloud Without Water" “Mother Teresa”: (Segments from various writings on our site) You mention “Mother Teresa” and Savonarola as inspiring examples of God’s handiwork. But these two are products of the Catholic Church, which has nothing to do with the Lord Jesus Christ. That’s why they are praised by those who don’t know Him: “And He said to them, You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God” (Luke 16:15 MKJV). From: F...
It's Not Too Late, Addict, for Repentance
From: Jordan To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, February 23, 2016 2:50 PM Subject: Repentance Is there ever a point where we are too far from repentance?  I've been an addict for years and while I was under the influence the devil manifested before me and told me he won and God turned me over to him.  At that point there was a deep sinking feeling in my heart and since then I've been doing better working towards cutting all sins from myself.  I pray daily and read the bible daily now trying to learn the word of God.  The people in my life tend to be Devils and I can tell now.  Is that because I am now one with his side?  When the devil manifested before me I rebuked what he said and have been working as hard as I can to remove all sin from me.  If you could help me out it would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks. Jordan From: Victor Hafichuk To: Jordan Sent: Tuesday, March 01, 2016 7:09 AM Subject: Re: Repentance Hi Jordan, Have you red our paper on Repentance? You’ve been trying to effect your own repentance, which is impossible. That’s why you’re confused about whose side you’re on – God’s or the Devil’s. When you experience the gift of repentance from God, you’ll know assuredly that He is on your side, and by walking in faith, that you’re on His side.  But at least you’ve taken the step of acknowledging the Law is good, and also realize you can’t believe what the Devil tells you, because he’s a liar. So keep going, and when you fail, look to the Lord...
Todd White’s Self-Generated, UnGodly Love
From: Kaleb To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, September 20, 2016 6:37 PM Subject: Judging Matthew 7:1-3, 16 1 Samuel 16:7 1 John 4:1-3 2 John 1:7 Just because a man asks for money, heals in an unconventional way, loves people unconditionally, or is loved by others does not make him a false prophet. Wigglesworth, White, and Johnson all preach the gospel and admit Jesus came in the flesh. I've also met Todd White personally. He gets persecuted all the time. His goal is that we all love each other, doesn't mean it happens. Luke 9:50 "Do not stop him" Jesus said "Whoever is not against you is for you." I love you and I pray God heals your heart from any pain caused to you and renews you wholly. From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Kaleb Sent: Tuesday, September 27, 2016 7:05 AM Subject: Re: Judging Kaleb, the Scriptures you cite declare exactly the point you’re missing. For example: “But the LORD said to Samuel, ‘Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the LORD sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart’” (1 Samuel 16:7 ESV). You’re judging Todd White by appearance – not his physical appearance, but according to what you see of his works and love. You’re not seeing the heart. Yes, Todd has love, but not the love of God from a pure heart. It’s a self-generated love, also known as False Love - Satan’s Last Stronghold. You also quote: 1 John 4:1-3 ESV ...
