The Church of Christ believe that you can't have musicat instruments in worship service and baptism is what washes our sins away and you have to be a believer like them. Pentecostal, over the top with all their works to be saved. Baptist go forward to the altar while music plays songs like,Only Trust Him( not so much now. more upbeat and jives type songs) people go and are led into rooms for prayers. I have been called hard headed (not a very Christ like thing to say to someone )plus other things thathave been said to me that have been judging to me. I think the Pope has way too much power and because they probably trust the priest to lead them and all kinds of things,I don't agree with especially the forgiveness of sins that only Jesus can do as well as see inside a persons heart. So I pray for those that are lost and only those that God sends into my life do I witness to. I do not call them names or argue .And if I am shunned and ridiculed so be it.
I saw an article in our newspaper that had a picture of a deer that had been shot by a hunter. It had a large set of horns but taking a closer look he noticed it had female geneticals. Very rare but it does happen. It looked like a buck,I saw the picture. Seems like she had a lot of male hormones in her body. Interesting.
S Taylor, I truly believe that sometimes we are given a vision through our dreams and those we never forget and always it's a message from God. When I was a teenager living my life away from God, I had a dream. I was lying on my bed looking out the window and it was dark. I looked up and saw a huge hand in the sky which was surrounded by light and lit the sky up. I heard this voice saying it is the end of time. Great fear came over me and I cried out no I am not ready and woke up still very frightened. It took a few more years with Him working in my life before I came back to the Father I had left . Actually the dream haunted me until I was back.
Yes, John U.K., just the beginning and a mere taste of what's coming when they will cry out for the hills and mountains to cover them and hide them from the wrath of a holy, just God.Right now He is shaking the earth and they will only increase in number and intensity.
Thanks Carl, for your wise advice. Our pastor had people praying and fasting for him before the election and he won Satan will be attacking him and he will need the prayers of His people. My husband and I stayed up and watched his acceptance speech and it both humbling and kind even toward those that opposed him and urged unity to make America great again. May God protect and give him the wisdom to run this country as He wants it run .Praise God because He gave the victory.
Amen Norm, if things are bad now, you ain't seen nothing until power hungry Hillary gets in. I really believe God has shown a remnant of Christians the reality of the situation and what we are really fighting and it's not Hillary. It's a spiritual battle and those that throw down their weapon(their vote) and say (l don't like who God is using ) only answers to Him. I have never felt such a burden for our country as I have now. I never dreamed one president could change our nation the way this one has and have so much help doing it. I have only said what God has laid on my heart to say and so once more I plead with you to vote if you are still undecided. This is one of the most important elections we as a nation have ever faced. God bless.
Frank, who is God going to use if not the Christian to bring in hopefully a change in our country?!! Our freedom as Christians are being taken away from us by Satan and his minions. I am just being a good watchman on the wall and trying to help make America Great again. If that offends you pray for me didn't Jesus say, pray for your enemies.?
The hated Billy and Franklin Graham have said they are voting for Trump and this is something they have never done before. They stay out of elections and never say who they are voting for but this time they have decided to speak out. They will hopefully convince their millions of faithful followers to get out and vote.
Our pastor has. been preaching a series of sermons on Foundations; "If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?"Psalm 11:3. He has made some very good points and one being that in the last election 45 million evangelicals did not vote and look at the mess our country is in. And some of us have still not learned anything and are going the same ole way expecting the results to be different. Thank God, the people that love our country recognize who will be used by God to pull us out of the cesspool the last administration has put us in and it won't be Hillary. Our pastor has spoken the message that God has given him and it is up to the people to listen or not. So many have shut their ears to God's voice for so long that they no longer recognize it when He speaks. Trump will win this election because the people who see the writing on the wall will get out and vote. I am so thankful we still have watchmen on the wall that's not afraid to speak the truth.
Cont:There is no human being and no human philosophy or force able to wrest dominion from our living God. Are we being faithful in our witness and warning of the wrath of the Lamb...the crucified, resurrected, outraged Lamb of God? ๐ Lord, one day Your plan is going to trump every false religion and man-made philosophy. What a glorious,exciting day that will be! Mornings With Tozer by AW Tozer In our world today Isis is the greater fear and this devotional is something that we sometimes forget. John U.K., your comment reminds us of this also. God trying to tell us something we so need to hear and remember?
We Trust God 'a Plan ..And cried with a loud voice,saying,salvation to our God which sitter had upon the throne,and unto the Lamb. Revelation 7:10. We who believe in God's faithfulness and in the inspired Scriptures are certain that the world's redemption does not lie in the hands of mankind I cannot tell you how glad I am that this is at least one thing that we humans cannot bungle! The plan of salvation and the day of consummation that is coming are in God''a eternal plan. The power in redemption is God's power. Only the worthy Lamb of God could die in our place. This is God's way of doing things,not our way! Millions have feared the threat of worldwide communism with silly frightened people declaring they would "rather be Red than dead!" But communism cannot prevail because it is raised in a materialistic teaching that there is no God, no Christ,no heaven and no hell. Communism cannot prevail because our God in heaven has his plan and program,not just for this earth, but for all of His vast created universe.

Hello sister pennelope, thanks for your prayers for my eyes. I have reading glasses to read with and now I have 20/20 vision far off. No longer need glasses for that at least!!You are a dear friend and very encouraging for me and MS was also. I have been diagnosed with Glaucoma also. Reading has always been so important to me even as a child, so this has been a bit unsettling but God has been keeping me from being too worried about it.
Hi John U.K., again thanks so much for your encouraging words and Ihave the James Smith also in book form that Dorcas recommended and find it helpful also. My Bible is book form also and KJV is still my favorite and have not had problems understanding it. My son has problems with reading and comprehension even had to go into specials reading classes in elementary school. As a teenager he got away from God and into so much trouble. Had an experience with God one night that changed his life. He always read kjv and never had any problems reading or understanding it. He has a family of his own and has brought them up to love the Lord. It's his son that's in the Marines. Not saying his life and theirs has been easy, far from it but I have watched how God got them through it and I stand amazed .Thanks for listening.I'll try to put some of Mornings with Tozer on here. He has one called Evenings With Tozer that I plan on getting in book form. I could lose the ones on here if my tablet goes out.๐
Hi John U.K.,haven't been on much lately because of eye surgery and check ups. Today I was released and go back in 4 months. I down loaded the Mornings With Tozer on my Nook Tablet and have much easier time studying the devotionals. I will look into the One by Leonard Ravenhill since I trust you with truths about the Bible. They have helped me to see more clearly how God works in our lives. I study Bible and pray about things I have read that "Hit me personally " Have learned from these great preachers. Thankful we have their work to help me along my journey to heaven. I couldn't make it without my morning devotion. It's late here so "Goodnight, my friend, you have been a help to me as well."
Hi MS, and will try to find that devotional you mentioned and btw I have never heard of Jan Hatmaker and her Bible Studies. Can't be too careful now in the days we are living in. I have to trust the person that gives me the go ahead to read and study it as well as searching the Bible,
I agree John U.K., and A W Tozer is another great man of God that has blessed and helped me with his writing. I have read that in his devotional, Morning With Tozer. No one can accuse him of being rich, he never owned a vehicle, he and his wife used public transportation. The money he got from his writings went back into his ministry and charity. I can't add anything either. So true what he said.Thanks for sharing. Allie, good comment and I agree. This government has opened the proverbial Pandora 'Box, and painted the White House rainbow colors in support. We can only look for worse and worse as it was in the days of Noah so shall it be in the days when the Son of Man appears. But you know, the darker the days the brighter our lights can shine.
Well, at least we know where. Hillary stands, no flip flops on her She is for killing babies in the womb, no if ands or buts. She is so worried about kids being killed by guns out of the womd but ok to murder while in the safest place of all. Vote for her and bring down God''a judgement on America .Strain at a gnat and swallow a camel as Jesus told the Pharisees.
