In the Holy of Holies
Behind that heavy veil
Sat the ark of the covenant
Where the Most High dwelt
And only the High Priest
Could enter therein
To offer up a sacrifice
For atonement of sin
But the veil was rent in instant
Revealing that holy place
For on hill nearby on a rugged cross
love-larae asked: What's your opinion on perfume?
Honestly, I don’t know. As a respiratory therapist, I have a problem with people who seem to take a bath in their perfume, but I really don’t have a problem with people wearing perfume. The purpose of purfume is first and foremost to cover body odor, and can be found in almost every beauty product from lotion to soap, to powders.
I’m a one God, Apostolic, tongue-talking, holy rollin’, born again, heaven-bound believer in the liberating power of Jesus’ name. I’ve been washed in the blood, sanctified by the Spirit. I believe in holiness and I suggest for you to do the same. I was set free at a Pentecostal altar on my knees. Pardon me if I’m not ashamed, to be a one God, Apostolic, tongue-talking, holy rollin’, born again, heaven-bound believer in the liberating power of Jesus’ name!
Anonymous asked: I'm sorry I wasn't clear. I meant specifilly the tanning bed. I know that laying outside is compromising modesty, so I just know a few ladies in church who go to the tanning bed instead so it had me wondering. Does that change anything you said before?
Not really. Full body tanning in a bed can be just as dangerous for your skin, if not more so, than laying outside. Likewise, doing a full body tan can expose more of your body to another person, depending on if you are in a private booth or a semi private booth, than modestly proper. But like I said before, it is a complicated thing. I reccommend talking to your pastor or pastor’s wife if you are unable to make a clear decision about whether to use a tanning bed or not.
Anonymous asked: What are pentecostal views on tanning? Do you believe that's more of a personal conviction issue? What about "treatin your body as a temple"?
Among Apostolic Pentecostals tanning is a complicated issue. While there is no specific teaching on tanning, there are many thoughts about how one should or should not tan. If one chooses to tan, then one must be prepaired as to how much they are willing to compromise in order to tan. If you are wanting a full body tan, then at some point you are exposing your entire body and are compromising modesty. It was always unacceptable in my circle of church youth not to full body tan, but that it was acceptable to roll up sleeves and lay out to tan the feet and legs below the knee.
If you choose to tan, you have to be careful. Please take the warnings of skin cancer seriously.
Anonymous asked: is there a Pentecostal denomination that is oneness and Jesus baptisim, but still believe that salvation and the baptism of the Holy Ghost are two separate events
From what I understand, all Apostolic Pentecostals believe that Salvation is a continuing process. While they believe that a person is “Saved” upon the infilling of the Holy Ghost evidenced by speaking in other tongues, that person will not go further in the Kingdom of God unless they apply the Word to their lives, learn to pray, apply holiness to their daily lives, or learn to live after Jesus. In other words, if all you do is get baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost, but don’t live a separated life, then your salvation becomes stagnant, and unless you do something to fix that stagnation, you are likely to backslide, or walk away from God.
Keeping your Salvation means walking afer God, living righteously by applying God’s Word to your life, keeping a prayer life vibrant, apply God’s Holiness to your life, and learn to live a separated life. This is an inter denominational thing among Apostolic Pentecostals. Very few would say that you are eternally saved after you recieve the gift of the Holy Ghost. If there is one particular denomination of Apostolic Pentecostals who believe such, I do not know of any.
Pray for the healing and release of Pastor Saeed.
