Sorry to see you go RANMAN.

I always had the feeling you were on to something, although we never "connected"

It seems you were too easily led astray by the misinformation and fluff all too prevalent on LP.

(No offense intended)

"...you were too easily led astray by the misinformation and fluff all too prevalent on LP."

Maybe he should have just stopped reading your posts then, Bonehead.

    Hello , renann 17 , thank you very much for helping me , I think about religion , religion that is par for the weak , mostly spirit , in life
    It is the law of faith things worse , regardless of religion , surely Jesus did not rise , but let's see , the people who invaded rome
      Israel was the most religious , then the Jewish people were looking for is liberation , or live free , now think about the 3rd day went to the grave
     And found open, clear that Joseph of Arimathea took the body , still alive , because with the power of God did not need to open the tomb ,
    Jesus he was a great prophet and know the laws of men. just this, so today he is respeitado.na blibia is full of contradictions .
    But the evidence from stated above . Ranann17 , I think so recent the largest telescope in the world was discovered 17 more billions of planets
     Read in milk , like new but in a primary state , ie in his time one day everyone they ( planets ) condition will be inhabited , and the bond of eternity are the kids then renann17 a day of clear skies look through the milky way and see there this the future for trillions of years , the link to get there is the son of the son ...
    So we are in, there is a passage in the prophet blibia = in the sky has a lot abodes ( planets ) , Jesus is just a prophet to be harmony and peace and freedom to get there. In man already in the unconscious , go into space , uses this path ahead . Jesus believed in a higher God so that at the time of the cross , said , why have you forsaken me ! Ranann17 then imagine a large bubble ( union univeros ) is where we are inside. Evolving gradually .
    Until you reach the day when man will have more rest because automation and robots will do the job of production in all sectors , and man will live longer pair and sports among nations . If you do not break the planet ahhhh ! Surely Jesus is not risen , Joseph of Arimathea bought the guards , and today after 2000 jesus is respected by the principles of freedom and peace and harmony among men . For this not to kill each other , something logical . In our solar system we have 10 planets you think that there garnish , not a day to each of them will be inhabited by the sons of men that the only bond of eternity . This heaven and hell is a creation of the mind of men. Because in nature there is duality in everything 50/50 . Maybe we conceive wrong
     The form of God .

    "surely Jesus did not rise"

    "man will live longer pair and sports among nations."

    "Read in milk , like new but in a primary state"

    "This heaven and hell is a creation of the mind of men."

    "man will live longer pair and sports among nations."

    "Maybe we conceive wrong The form of God".

    "Read in milk , like new but in a primary state"

    "Surely Jesus is not risen..."

    "man will live longer pair and sports among nations."

    ""Read in milk , like new but in a primary state"

     

    Yes Dr San, all of your comments make perfect sense! 

    And I will certainly study them and commit them to memory.

    In fact, I'm going to go read in milk like new but in a primary state right now!  Crazy

      Ranman...first I want to say thank you for all your hard work and sharing on the LP :) I completely understand needing to move on and perhaps do something more "productive" in your life. Lottery is fun and all and it's easy to get caught up in numbers and the excitement of winning but you've found the best discovery of all....in the scheme of things....God is much more important.

        LP family, it has been a pleasure knowing you.  I am signing off and won't be back.  Best of luck to all of you.  I did NOT crack the lottery code, I simply made a promise to God.

         

        Ecclesiastes 5:4 "When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed."

        My friend: I am asking you the most important question of your life. Your joy or your sorrow for all eternity depends upon your answer. The question is: Are you saved? It is not a question of how good you are, nor if you are a church member, but are you saved? Are you sure you will go to Heaven when you die?

        God says in order to go to Heaven, you must be born again. In John 3:7, Jesus said to Nicodemus, "Ye must be born again."

        In the Bible, God gives us the plan of how to be born again which means to be saved. His plan is simple! You can be saved today. How?

        First, my friend, you must realise you are a sinner. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).

        Because you are a sinner, you are condemned to die. "For the wages [payment] of sin is death" (Romans 6:23). This includes eternal separation from God in Hell.

        "... it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27).

        But God loved you so much he gave his only begotten Son, Jesus, to bear your sin and die in your place. "For he hath made him [Jesus, who knew no sin] to be sin for us ... that we might be made the righteousness of God in him" (2 Corinthians 5:21).

        Jesus had to shed his blood and die. "For the life of the flesh is in the blood" (Leviticus 17:11) "... without shedding of blood is no remission [pardon]" (Hebrews 9:22).

        "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8).

        Although we cannot understand how, God said my sins and your sins were laid upon Jesus and he died in our place. He became our substitute. It is true. God cannot lie.

        My friend, "God ... now commandeth all men every where to repent" (Acts 17:30).

        This repentance is a change of mind that agrees with God that one is a sinner, and also agrees with what Jesus did for us on the cross.

        In Acts 16:30-31, the Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas: "... Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved... ."

        Simply believe on him as the one who bore your sin, died in your place, was buried, and whom God resurrected.

        His resurrection powerfully assures that the believer can claim everlasting life when Jesus is received as Saviour.

        "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name"(John 1:12).

        "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Romans 10:13).

        Whosoever includes you. Shall be saved means not maybe, nor can, but shall be saved.

        Surely, you realise you are a sinner. Right now, wherever you are, repenting, lift your heart to God in prayer.

        In Luke 18:13, a sinner prayed: "God be merciful to me a sinner."

        Just pray:

        "Oh, God, I know I am a sinner. I believe Jesus was my substitute when he died on the cross. I believe his shed blood, death, burial, and resurrection were for me. I now receive him as my Saviour. I thank you for the forgiveness of my sins, the gift of salvation and everlasting life, because of your merciful grace. Amen."

        Just take God at his word and claim his salvation by faith. Believe, and you will be saved. No church, no lodge, no good works can save you. Remember, God does the saving. All of it!

        God's simple plan of salvation is: You are a sinner. Therefore, unless you believe on Jesus who died in your place, you will spend eternity in Hell. If you believe on him as your crucified, buried, and risen Saviour, you receive forgiveness for all of your sins and his gift of eternal salvation by faith.

        You say, "Surely, it cannot be that simple." Yes, that simple! It is scriptural. It is God's plan. My friend, believe on Jesus and receive him as Saviour today.

        If his plan is not perfectly clear, read this tract over and over, without laying it down until you understand it. Your soul is worth more than all the world.

        "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" (Mark 8:36).

        Be sure you are saved. If you lose your soul, you miss Heaven and lose all. Please! Let God save you this very moment.

        God's power will save you, keep you saved and enable you to live a victorious Christian life. "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it" (1 Corinthians 10:13).

        Do not trust your feelings. They change. Stand on God's promises. They never change. After you are saved, there are three things to practise daily for spiritual growth: Pray you talk to God. Read your Bible God talks to you. Witness you talk for God.

        You should be baptised in obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ, as a public testimony of your salvation, and then unite with a Bible-believing church without delay. "Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord ..." (2 Timothy 1:8).

        "Whosoever therefore shall confess [testify of] me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven" (Matthew 10:32).

                      LP family, it has been a pleasure knowing you.  I am signing off and won't be back.  Best of luck to all of you.  I did NOT crack the lottery code, I simply made a promise to God.

                       

                      Ecclesiastes 5:4 "When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed."

                       

                      +++

                       

                      My friend: I am asking you the most important question of your life. Your joy or your sorrow for all eternity depends upon your answer. The question is: Are you saved? It is not a question of how good you are, nor if you are a church member, but are you saved? Are you sure you will go to Heaven when you die?

                      God says in order to go to Heaven, you must be born again. In John 3:7, Jesus said to Nicodemus, "Ye must be born again."

                      In the Bible, God gives us the plan of how to be born again which means to be saved. His plan is simple! You can be saved today. How?

                      First, my friend, you must realise you are a sinner. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).

                      Because you are a sinner, you are condemned to die. "For the wages [payment] of sin is death" (Romans 6:23). This includes eternal separation from God in Hell.

                      "... it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27).

                      But God loved you so much he gave his only begotten Son, Jesus, to bear your sin and die in your place. "For he hath made him [Jesus, who knew no sin] to be sin for us ... that we might be made the righteousness of God in him" (2 Corinthians 5:21).

                      Jesus had to shed his blood and die. "For the life of the flesh is in the blood" (Leviticus 17:11) "... without shedding of blood is no remission [pardon]" (Hebrews 9:22).

                      "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8).

                      Although we cannot understand how, God said my sins and your sins were laid upon Jesus and he died in our place. He became our substitute. It is true. God cannot lie.

                      My friend, "God ... now commandeth all men every where to repent" (Acts 17:30).

                      This repentance is a change of mind that agrees with God that one is a sinner, and also agrees with what Jesus did for us on the cross.

                      In Acts 16:30-31, the Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas: "... Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved... ."

                      Simply believe on him as the one who bore your sin, died in your place, was buried, and whom God resurrected.

                      His resurrection powerfully assures that the believer can claim everlasting life when Jesus is received as Saviour.

                      "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name"(John 1:12).

                      "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Romans 10:13).

                      Whosoever includes you. Shall be saved means not maybe, nor can, but shall be saved.

                      Surely, you realise you are a sinner. Right now, wherever you are, repenting, lift your heart to God in prayer.

                      In Luke 18:13, a sinner prayed: "God be merciful to me a sinner."

                      Just pray:

                      "Oh, God, I know I am a sinner. I believe Jesus was my substitute when he died on the cross. I believe his shed blood, death, burial, and resurrection were for me. I now receive him as my Saviour. I thank you for the forgiveness of my sins, the gift of salvation and everlasting life, because of your merciful grace. Amen."

                      Just take God at his word and claim his salvation by faith. Believe, and you will be saved. No church, no lodge, no good works can save you. Remember, God does the saving. All of it!

                      God's simple plan of salvation is: You are a sinner. Therefore, unless you believe on Jesus who died in your place, you will spend eternity in Hell. If you believe on him as your crucified, buried, and risen Saviour, you receive forgiveness for all of your sins and his gift of eternal salvation by faith.

                      You say, "Surely, it cannot be that simple." Yes, that simple! It is scriptural. It is God's plan. My friend, believe on Jesus and receive him as Saviour today.

                      If his plan is not perfectly clear, read this tract over and over, without laying it down until you understand it. Your soul is worth more than all the world.

                      "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" (Mark 8:36).

                      Be sure you are saved. If you lose your soul, you miss Heaven and lose all. Please! Let God save you this very moment.

                      God's power will save you, keep you saved and enable you to live a victorious Christian life. "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it" (1 Corinthians 10:13).

                      Do not trust your feelings. They change. Stand on God's promises. They never change. After you are saved, there are three things to practise daily for spiritual growth: Pray you talk to God. Read your Bible God talks to you. Witness you talk for God.

                      You should be baptised in obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ, as a public testimony of your salvation, and then unite with a Bible-believing church without delay. "Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord ..." (2 Timothy 1:8).

                      "Whosoever therefore shall confess [testify of] me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven" (Matthew 10:32).

                        Hello ranman17,

                        Though we've never talked at length, I've so appreciated your presence on the LP, and all the time/effort you've given the members of this Family. I hope you know that all you've done wasn't in vain, and even through cyberspace, I'd like to think that wonderful bits of "who you really are" bled through all of it. That is what compels me, us, to give you more than a casual send-off. Please be well, and may you and your family live in perpetual peace, sufficient prosperity, and blessed health. Take good care...

                        Legend says that The Craggy One was once asked about the Lottery Circle and the aged Lottery LoreKeeper whispered in his gravelly eloquence,"It is known among our kind that 2 successive draws are in reality the 2 center-points of 2 intersecting circles that share a common radius - a Root Center. This Vesica Piscis is the creative womb for all numbers, the Still Point from which two draws will unite & a new one is born. This "perfect" space is a wormhole through Time(Change). Master its proportions & your numerical predictions will not falter".
