And, Hillary of course does not have self-esteem, even through her pride in being the first woman to run for President really shines through in her speeches. Let's be fair here and even add Obama to the mix also.
I agree, william, like my husband said, people see what they want to see and can always find a link to support that view. If Hillary goes to jail, they will still vote for her and even if she sells our country out for money. So I look at the fact that even a gay that supports Trump is really amazing and many other sinners that do help him get in the White House is just God's way of overcoming the Chrisians' vote for Hilliary.
@ Bill from Cin. And Jim for vice president..I think it's the LOVE of money that's the root of all evil and paupers can love money and hate and envy people that have it. Abraham was a very weathy man as well as the rich man that gave his tomb to bury Jesus in. We have Lydia, a business woman and many others that followed Jesus. Judas loved money and look what he did. Jesus was called everything from a wine- biddeer, lover of sinners,glutton, ate wth sinners and so hated by the religious leaders. Yes, it is hard for a rich man to enter into heaven because of their trust and love of their money but not impossible. I think of wealthy christians today, Hobby Lobby, Chic-fil-lay, Penny's , Sam Walton. Of course, you are free to judge these people also but you will have to answer for every idle word you speak someday. Billy Graham has made his will and since his children have been provided for, he has willed his estate be given to the Billy Graham Association.
John UK, I agree with your comment. Our pastor meets every Saturday night with anyone that wants to pray for our nation etc. Last Sunday and again this coming Sunday to those that are able to knee and pray for our country, the police and protection for them. The world and the mess it is in. Prayer is so important in the times of rampant evil because that is the most important weapon we have to fight it. Matthew Henry is one of my favorites. I read his commentary on the scriptures I read every morning as an added thought to what I read. I am reading the psalms now. Blessings and hope your day goes well, dear brother.
Get ready people because God has heard the prayers of the righteous and we will have another chance as a nation to get things right again. There was a man on Lou Dobbs fox news that has been the predictor of elections for as far back as Reagan and he always got it right. He said the Republicans will win this election no matter who is running. Lou asked if Trump would be president and he said the way it looked so far( which was before he was actually in the race that close) he will be our next President!!
Btw and off thread, Mike from New York, I have been blessed to be a part of the little boy from Peru, that I sponsor's life. He has found friends in the school he goes to that is teaching him about Jesus and the Bible. They are the ones he talks about and draws me pictures which have improved this year and is eager to communicate these things to me when I get a letter from him. Have a blessed day. Always, interesting to read your comments.
Amen, Mike, if the shepherd of his people cannot deliever God's message to his flock that God has appointed him to then He has failed in his mission. To have a preacher's hands tied in what he can or cannot say in the pulpit.is putting pressure on him and this is just the beginning. Watered down messages, no fire in the pulpit, no more singing hymns by men and women inspired to write them from Amazing Grace to It is Well with my Soul. Just loud music with a beat and songs to dance to.But most love it the way it is so we accept it and do our best to worship in spite of it all.I do have tapes of songs that encourage me and minster to me that I play ar home and devotions by some of the preachers in the past and the Bible which are still relevent for today. Strange how as a young girl, I had my rock and roll music that I danced to and the church music that I sang in the choir to and today I listen to songs at home to minister to my spiritual life.
Hi John Uk , yes I read Charles Sprugeon's devotions everyday and he has helped me so much. Every day is a message to start my day with an encouraging word or maybe something to make me stop and think and ponder about because like I said we need both to balance out our christian life and make us grow stronger in Christ. I don't know how much longer until He comes but I will have my light burning and plenty of oil in my lamp waiting and watching.
Hi Pennned, hope you are still reading this thread because I just wanted to say what a blessing you have been to me and thanks for your encouragement when things went south for me at times on here. . I do wish Icould just post my thoughts on something and let it go. Seems like you do that quite well. Blessings to you, dear sister.
Hey there, John Uk. Missed so much the way we do help one another to see things that we might have missed other wise. You have been one of those and thank you for 'sharpening my iron', dear brother. I was led to this forum by God and so I will continue on. I am good and thanks for asking. Looking forward to the coming of the Lord also and meeting you all in heaven very soon the way things are going now it can' t be too much. longer.
Cont. We had started eating lunch and two of her students walked in and saw her, came over and was so excited to see her. Who would have thought that could have happened. She didn't want them to as a minor think it would be ok for them. Of course, now it's drugs also that they have to deal with as well.
Hi Christropher, missed you guys even the ones who have been difficult at times to work with but sometimes these are needed also to help me grow and learn. Have had to learn how to deal with these issues and has helped me in my Christian walk. Hi John, you are so right in what you said to dear friend and brother, Dave. a few posts back. Btw, Christropher, you are absolutely right about not being able to tell about a woman being a lesbin or a man. I saw a couple in a dept. store in the dept that sells women's things and one looked like a man but can't say for sure but he was not a real man in a woman's dept. helping her pick out something totally unrelated to a man, to my way of thinking. I had a lesbin cousin and you could not tell her from a man. So who knows if they are true transvisite or real men or a lesbin either way it is a horrible thing to have been passed. Back to the thread, if you drink out in public, like what happened to my teacher daughter once when we went shopping in Shreveport, La. about 45 miles or so from where we lived. We had stopped to eat lunch at a place that served liquor and she did drink ever so often and thought about ordering one there but didn't because of the possibilty of one of her students walking in and seeing her.We had no longer started ea
1517, Sorry that I used that metaphor of lesser evil. My point being, if you disagree with both candidates then pick the one you do agree with the most and to me Trump is it. I know both are ok maybe, but I want a more conserative president that maybe called on to appoint someone to office or Supreme Court. I agree with what the party he is running under stands for and saying either him or Hillary are actually evil. I hope I cleared that up for you.
Our pastor was one of 500( that eventally went to 1000) evangelicals that met with Trump. He now supports Trump and so do I because I see it as the lesser of two evils and I hate to see anymore liberals appointed to the supreme court. America, is at the tipping point right now and hopfully it has not gone so far that we 'can't make our country great again'. I see prophesy being fulfilled and things only getting worse.
I truly do not think it is wrong to drink wine but not to excess. Paul said to drink wine for the stomach evey so often. Wine is fermened grapes and not grape juice.Jesus turned water to wine that was better than what the host started with and that being his first miracle. Wine served at the Last Supper, I believe it was. Anything that is additive and harmful to your body or mind is wrong and that includes food, drugs including prescription, cigarettes etc. Be discrete with strong drink and don't harm your witness by causing a brother to stumble because he might see it as harmful. As for me,every medicine I am on for blood pressure to thyroid problems says on the warnings to NOT DRINK ACHOLOL while taking this medicine and I don't. Have to watch my sweets, now that can become an addiction.
If this was a woman to man like Christropher said, then he was no longer suppose to be in a woman's dressing room but a man. Wasn't that the purpose of this whole sick mess. She, he seems to be confused about his, her gender and where he, she belongs.The customers of Target have been told this so why do they continue to shop there? I have transfered all prescriptions from Target to another place so I never have to set foot in that store again. Just another can of worms this government run by this administration has opened!!!
Hi Dave, you are right on with your reasoning about the situation because things are never going to actually get better only worse as we near the end times. We will always be fighting a spirtual battle that is raging now and only what's being done is like putting a bandade on a cut that actually needs stitches to stop the bleeding. Blessings to you and to 'do gardening' both posts are true and so I keep my eyes on the Lord and look forward to a better place with Him.
Hi, get real. Interesting post on domestic violence. Seems that is another issue that is growing in numbers. And the way you describe it is the way it usually is. The drugs and acohol abuse is a big part of the problem. A very sad situation for the children that are raised in this enviroment.
Praise the Lord for this good news. God is still in control, no matter what the devil wants every one to think. He may win a few battles but not the war. He may kick us down a few times but we get up and move on a stronger person and christian.
Christropher, very thoughtful and encouraging for us as we face uncertain days, ahead. Reminds me of the song, " The Midnight Cry" which never fails to bless and encourage me when I listen to it. Thanks for sharing.
