Pneuma Question

As we continue our march toward the Day of Pentecost and our study of the Holy Spirit, I have a question for you.  I want your help as I prepare for this Sunday's message.  Here's the question:


Post your response in the comments below.  Thanks for the help.

That's a tough one Bruce! My fleshiness says YES! Because I am really impatient and have to know what's going on. However if God had told me that I'd be going thru all that I've gone thru this year I would have probably been really reclusive and depressed. Not knowing forces me to walk in faith and learn to rely on Him more. Some warning would be nice like when God warned Isaiah that no onw would listen. Tough one!

I think God has already shown us our future without him Hell. With him he walks beside us,prepares our way and we get to go to Heaven and the times I have died and the few thing I have seen are more than wonderful. If you mean the little every day things of life, NO I would not like to see or know the times and ways I my hurt my God heart while I learn from him. I love my God to much to know that.

Hi Bruce, wish I could attend your series..hope it's okay that I am commenting even tho I do not go. Yes, I would want Him to show me everything about my future, more importantly, I would want Him to tell me why He is doing and what He is doing with the events of the future in the greater scheme of thing. I think tho that He doesn't tell us our future is because then we would not have to have any FAITH. Faith is hard, trusting Him COMPLETELY is hard (for me) How would I learn to have faith if I knew everything about my future? But, yes, I would want to know, but with conditions.

There have been many times when I have desperately wished to know my future. When we were in the midst of our infertility struggle, all I wanted was to know what would happen, because I thought that if I knew for sure that children would come along, I would then be able to hold on to hope. Now, I have the opposite view. I have no clue what will end up happening, and I'm so glad that's the case! It's exciting to wait and see what God has in store for my life, and knowing that He has an awesome plan is enough for me!

He has shown us!! Through his LIVING word and by his Holy Spirit!

I wouldn't want to know my future before passing but I would definitly want to know after, like a painless NDE that gives you a glimpse in to heaven.

Tough question! The obsessive planner part of my brain screams YES!!!! immediately. The more rational part of me says no. It's by trusting God in the most confusing and unexpected of circumstances that I have drawn closest to Him and I wouldn't trade it.
