Precious Saints Anyone familar with spiritual warfare in prayer? Let's humble ourselves, put on the full armor of God and agree together in standing in the authority we have in Christ, in the Blood He shed for us, and seek God in agreement under the Spirit's leading and empowering for devastating victory over the devil that our Father's honoring the Truth of His word and fulfilling His Promises to us mean for our dear Brother and his hone.
I don't know about you all but I am growing to say: In the faith God gives us in His word by the word of His spirit, leading and teaching us to do and abide in His will for us in Christ, we ought in faith to expect our praying to change everything JOHN 15:7-17 nasb
What is the difference between Isis and an " atheist group " , i.e.( , Mikey Weinstein )The securalist religious group " "atheism" , has yet to gain approval from the government to begin be headings or crucifixions. Homosexual advocates , ie; the Obama justice department are in the same category. Where's religious freedom is , a nation prospers
Praise the Lord for His healing grace and for the much despised by some modern medicine that He has graciously allowed to be developed. May God grant both missionaries many more years of fruitful service.
Christopher, we appreciate you and will by God's grace continue to uphold you and your situation in our prayers. God has said that when we go through the fire and flood He will sustain and uphold us. (Isaiah 43:1,2) He has promised to uphold, strengthen, and help us and be with us during our time of testing. (Isaiah 41:10) Although, unlike some would say, the actions of your spouse are not foreordained, they are not unforeseen. Many are the afflictions of the righteous but God promises deliverance and sustaining grace. The struggle of trusting God during times of difficulty is seen in many times in the Bible. We know His grace is always sufficient and that He is strengthening you to rely upon more and more upon Him. Our Lord is making you see that true blessings come from laying up treasures in heaven and seeing our time here as a pilgrimage to a city whose builder and maker is God. You have been given a heavy cross to bear, but God's grace is seen in the blessing you are to many of us here on SA. With God all things are possible, glory to His holy name.
this is no different than common core or aca. -- checks and balances of state guhv replaced.
the federalizing of all things commercial or state. and the internationalizing of all things federal towards a north American union.
the news reports the national guard. but what of HS and military contractors called in?
the federalizing under the auspices of need.
not missed, I'm sure by many law enforcement who actually know what cons'l law is.
once its gone folks, its gone.
after seeing video of black panthers protecting police, it does make one wonder? the rhetoric in front of the screen, American people need to start listening to each other. standard Marxist division techniques.
people say, hey these leaders are "antichrist" and all this other huge rhetoric, but then eat up all the pr.

You realize in the early centuries of Christianity, the Church of the East was the LARGEST Church, right? You realize generations of Chaldean Elect await us in the world to come, right? It was the heresy of Arius that led to the poisoning of the waters, not their genepool
Hebrews 11:40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.

Christopher, dear bro, I feel your pain and anguish.
Better not to discuss such private matters on a public forum. I'll write you with some of my thoughts.
In the meantime, I pray that the Lord will give you wisdom, sensitivity to his will and to your wife's spiritual needs, and the strength and love to so walk before him as to commend your faith in your wife's eyes.

Amen! And even more than that meditate on the Truth, Satan is terrified of Jesus. Jesus has already defeated him with His Precious shed blood
So how do we defeat him? Our strength and abilities?
By the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony! GLORY! PRAISE GOD! THANK YOU SO VERY, VERY MUCH, LORD JESUS!
Oh! The JOY Unspeakable and full of Glory for the child of God who dwells in the Protective Shadow of the Great Good Shepherd! Who in Christ stomps snakes, crushing their heads under his foot, from Whom the mightiest of lions on this earth would flee like a kitten chased by a pack of starving pit bulls, BECAUSE the battle belongs to the LORD!
I wanted to mention one last thing...I've been seriously wondering if there is demonic activity in my house. I have been so heavy emotionally for years now and it's a heavyness, and sense of hopelessness, etc, that I have never felt before. Much, much more than sadness, or.a boo-hoo, woe is me sort of thing. A sense of hopelessness and emptiness that is very worrisome and troubling. Now, I know I can't be possessed, but wonder if I am being severly oppressed, if something is attached or whatever to my wife, etc. I can't say there are odd happenings around the house or anything, but definately a sense of dread, despair, etc. Maybe I'm reaching and it's just all a part of what depression brings to the table. Ok, thanks for listening. : ) Poor you...ha-ha.
She knows how much I hate her fou language, for example, yet uses it around nobody but me. Many, many issues, but blind to each and fights against everything I say. This is me dilemna...what do you do when someone refuses to make the slightest of changes but demands you conform to their every rule and regulation? What do you do when you're unequally yoked and your spouse has no respect or concern for the things that bother you? What do you do when all the evidence says they will never change, probably worsen with time, and shows no interest whatsoever for anything God, other than observing the vain rituals they were taught will save them?

Thanks for the comments, and especially the players. The reason I am so open here is because I have nobody else to go to and I respect the various opinions. My married life is difficult beyond description. My wife has many, many issues she has refused to get help for or even fully aacknowledge while she has demanded that I conform to her every command. Emotionally, she has beat me to a pulp; into a person I don't even recognize. The sole reason I am still around is because even after all she has done to me, I can't stand the thought of breaking her heart, and I feel sorry for her because even her own family is turning away from her. She has no idea how bad she is. She's blind it and it's maddening. I have done.everything humanly possible to figure out how to continue while she has sat back doing absolutely nothing. I know she loves me in her own way, but there's no evidence of it. I know she would be devastated if I left, but she does nothing to keep me. Nothing makes sense. I'm certain she is responsible for much of the depression. As for laying down the law, she has serious control issues and.it would be.a horror show. She would never listen, nor does she have any respect for me. She knows how much I hate her fou language, for example, yet uses it around nobody
