Hi Paul,

I found your website when I was on google and I type in repentance. I’m searching ( Jesus Christ ) His truth.

Regards,

Mag

Hi Paul,

I find myself crying out to The Lord most of the time. I need Him. But do not know the word to speak but huge burden in my heart crying out to Him daily. What’s happening to me? I desire to know my Lord, my Savior and hear from Him. I don’t share this to the people at my church cos they would just tell me that I already have Him. Than why am I having such burden crying out to the Lord all the time. Can you please enlighten or encourage me though the Holy Spirit.

I am willing to accept any rebuke or correction as long as it is from The lord.

Love,

Mag

Hi Mag,

If you realize you don’t know the Lord and desperately want to, isn’t that a wonderful thing? It could only happen if God is drawing you to Himself through Christ, as He said: 

“No one can come to Me unless the Father Who has sent Me draw him, and I will raise him up at the last day” (John 6:44 MKJV). 

Now consider this: You say you don’t share your search for the Lord with the people at your church, “cos they would just tell me that I already have Him.” If you know you don’t have the Lord and they don’t realize it, this can only be because they don’t have the Lord, too, and don’t care to. That’s what makes them such enemies of those seeking Him. As Jesus also said:

“But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the Kingdom of Heaven against men. For you neither go in, nor do you allow those entering to go in” (Matthew 23:13 MKJV).

Aren’t you admitting that your religious companions would stop you from entering in? Perhaps you’re seeing this already, and counting the cost. It’s a serious matter, which we write about in The Case for Coming Out. You can’t walk with the Lord and stay with those who oppose Him in ignorance and unbelief. 

I hope you find these things encouraging, Mag, because if you embrace the truth with your whole being, it will set you free. The Lord is good to His every Word – you can place your life on it, and must. 

After you signed up for the Forum, Ronnie Tanner set you up your account to have access to the Private section, where you can see the instructions for joining us at the Sabbath meeting you. You can also hear about our Bible readings/telephone conference calls there, which you’re welcome to come to as well. Do you have any questions about these things? 

Let us know, and if there’s anything else we can help you with in finding your way. 

Paul

I was flipping thru tv channels trying to find a station for kids that teach the Bible and seen on tbn them talking about Joseph Prince i am new in my walk with God and was wondering who he was and found your article on him and i am so thankful i did!!! Thank you Lord for putting me where i needed to go!!!

Do Men of God Walk in the Flesh?
From: Kelly To: The Path of Truth Sent: Thursday, December 31, 2015 12:01 PM Subject: Hi! I attend TSC Hi! I'm 52 yrs of age. I've spent most of my life seeking Truth. The Lord is good! Peter failed, but chose to be forgiven over & over & over. Paul & the disciples were not always correct, but they submitted to grace.  My experience at TSC is the same. All churches are run by humans who are not always speaking for The Lord. If it were a 100% all the time submission we would all eventually end up on auto-pilot. Or end up worshipping the Staff & not The Lord. It's a 'living' word because we have to always be collecting more manna.  I have had The Lord speak directly just to me through the pastors at TSC, I have also witnessed times when I was pretty sure that they were speaking from the flesh. Yes, the Bible says that teachers are held accountable for what they say, but! The hearer is also called to 1.) pray for those in authority 2.) pray for wisdom & insight to know when a word is from The Lord or not 3.) spend time alone with The Lord. (In the banking industry, tellers who are money handlers can tell a counterfeit bill by simply handling lots of legitimate bills, they know the difference through experience.)  There have been times at TSC when I say, "Lord, I think he is speaking in the flesh." & then I lift it up to The Lord. A week later, that same Pastor will admit & apologize for speaking in the flesh. It's The Lord! We are calle...
Why Don't I Feel Saved?
From: Barb To: The Path of Truth Sent: Wednesday, April 13, 2016 5:23 AM Subject: Wow You contradict yourself all throughout this commentary.  One point that makes no sense to me is how you say that God chooses you.  Well how do we know we are chosen? I have been "Christian light" since I was 8.  I have struggled to really feel saved.  I am willing to lay it all down, but have never felt the Holy Spirit. I may not be chosen, according to you. Then you go on to say, keep striving.  Keep searching.  If I'm not chosen, then why strive?   When I tell you I have struggled, I have done everything I can to move closer to God.  I have cried out to him also.  And nothing... Your take on Billy Graham is just plain awful. He may ask you to pray the prayer but he also makes you know that that isn't the end of it.   Barb  From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Barb Sent: Wednesday, April 27, 2016 7:23 AM Subject: Re: Wow You’re right that you’re not chosen, Barb. If you were chosen you’d know it, because you would know Him – the Lord Jesus Christ. Our assurance and confidence is in Him. You lack this confidence because you don’t know Him. You’re wrong that we would tell you to keep striving or searching. Your striving isn’t of faith, and your searching isn’t for the Lord. This is your kind of striving and searching: “For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For they, being ignorant of the righteousness of God...
