    Blessed with graces? Grace has become a common word of deception in the church by the way.

    The change did take place while Jesus was here. Seriously. None of us deserve to see God. It's like crapping on a father, denying his existence, and then asking for him because we find out he can give us something. Our sinful nature needs no part in God. And that is why we will NEVER see Him until we rid our lives of sin. You think just believing in Jesus and his "grace" will save you? Many people will be in for a big surprise if they actually believe that. The apostles threw away their worldly lives to serve Jesus. And Jesus requested this from others. Society has always been a place of filth and a lack of pure holiness. Unless we turn away from it, and surrender ourselves to God's Will, following his commands to the letter, we will likely not get the result we are expecting. A person who expects nothing from God but has the will to serve Him unconditionally above all other things in this world is the kind that will go to Heaven. Jesus did just that. And so did the apostles (mostly). Anything less than that is a high risk for Hell.

    What have you given up for God lately?

    I am sorry to see you are so out of touch with what God is doing in the world. Just a few stories for you.....

    But really, Jesus Christ is God's last word to mankind. The message of the Gospel continues to speak, and the message is "Repent, turn from your ways, and believe the Gospel."

    If you have not yet heard and responded to this word; there is nothing much else God has to say to you. The rest will be said at the Final Judgment.

    others who have heard this word......

    I have been blessed with graces! I tell you this that if you open your heart with prayer, you will hear from God! I have had answers to prayer. God is great and he is available! Open your heart in prayer! Mother Theresa has a short novena found online, "My All in All" it is a short daily prayer and wonderful! I also pray the scriptural rosary found on line. Again Jesus has already come and is waiting for you to come to him! Check out the song by Mark Maher (Remembrance)

    Hebrews 1:1-2 says, "Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, whom He appointed the heir of all things, through whom also He created the world."

    God speaks to us today through His revealed written word, the Bible.

    He appeared prior to sending His physical manifestation (Jesus Christ) to perform the work that would permit His indwelling Holy Spirit to remain with us following the cross...something that wasn't possible in the OT and according to both OT and NT is "better".

    He was still rejected in the OT despite His physical revelations to people...some people are just always going to be wrong even when they are shown with their own eyes what is right...that's the sad truth.

  • Jesus appeared in the New testament and He was/is God. Now we have the Holy spirit and He is God too.

    They were not people, they were Jews, his peculiarly people.

    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints believe that he has spoken to his Prophets again.
