Relating to Rumi

When your heart becomes the grave of your secrets, that desire of yours will be gained more quickly. The prophet said that anyone who keeps secret his inmost thought will soon attain the object of his desire. When seeds are buried in the earth, their inward secrets become the flourishing garden.

~ Mevlana Rumi



When I am with you, we stay up all night. When you are not here, I cannot go to sleep. Praise God for these two insomnias and the difference between them.

~ Mevlana Rumi



The rain-weeping and the sun burning twine together to make us grow. Keep your intelligence white-hot and your grief glistening, so your life will stay fresh. Cry easily like a little child.


~ Mevlana Rumi

  1. GOD BELIEVES THAT AND IS A CONJUNCTION BY STEVE FINNELL

    God sees and as a conjunction. Men see and as an impediment to their personal doctrines of salvation.

    Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.

    It is believed and been baptized. It is not believed only.

    Act 2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

    It is repent and be baptized. It is not repent only.

    Men like to rewrite God's word. Some exceptions to God's gospel plan of salvation, as assumed by men, are.

    1. If you believe but die before you are baptized in water you will be saved. (Scripture ref: NONE)
    2. All men that are saved, are saved by grace alone; because God forces men to believe, and men have no responsibility concerning their own salvation. (Scripture ref. NONE)
    3. Men are saved by faith only. (Scripture ref. NONE)
    4. God does not require men to have faith, repent, confess, and be baptized in water in order to be saved. (Scripture ref. NONE)

    Proverbs 16:25 There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.

    GOD'S TERMS FOR PARDON.

    1. FAITH: John 3:16, John 8:24
    2. REPENTANCE: Acts 2:38, Acts 3:19
    3. CONFESSION: Romans 10:9-10, Matthew 10:32-33
    4. WATER BAPTISM: Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38, Acts 22:16, 1 Peter 3:21

    All Scriptures are from God's word, as found in the Bible. (New American Standard Bible)

    All of men's opinions are found in creeds books, Bible commentaries and books about the Bible, that are written by men.
