Could very well be, Shane. So glad to see we are back on the thread again and prophesy has always been an interest of mine but not to the point some are with saying this or that one is the AntiChrist. He will be revealed when the time is right.How's everything going for you in socal? I have a grandson going through Boot Camp in San Diego, California. He's just 18 yrs old but wanted to do this. He'll do fine because he has the heart of a warrior. Peace and blessings.
Thank you for your prayers pennned and Jessica and that gives me courage and faith as they do futher testing and Pennned I will put Kent on my prayer list as well. We certaintly need to be good bereans and be aware of what's really going on in the world. I get a lot of information on here that I didn't know about. I try to be fair and teachable. Jessica, I went to a ladies retreat once and was in a group that had to do with prayer. The lady taught that prayer is very powerful and when we tell someone that we can't do anything for them but pray for them, that's like saying, all we can do is send up a Ballistic Missile for you. Amen, when we are praying we are doing something for these people in their suffering. Prayers for you as well. We all need the prayers of each other.
I agree that we should be focusing on the signs rather than just the Man. I see Crislam as a very big sign as one author spoke of as deceiving some even now. Rick Warren and other preachers Robert Schuller for one have signed an agreement concerning this very thing. Interesting article. Jesus said to look up when you see these things happening for your redemption drawth neigh. He does not want us focusing on these signs but to be aware and awake..to keep working for the kingdom while it is day for the night is coming when no man can work. These are thoughts that came to mind from my reading of the scriptures most of my life but can't remember chapter or verse like some on here. I think it's important to read and study God's word because He will bring to mind what you need to comfort and keep your eyes on Him as the days grow darker.
Jessica, I sense you have the same heart for the perscuted church as well. Your spirit and posts speak comfort and blessings as well to me. I have a prayer request as well. A spot on my husbands liver was found during a cat-scan and MRI. My husband got a message confused and we misunderstood. He has been refered to a Cancer Specialist Wednesday. Just helps me to know that others are praying. Thanks, prayers for you also and blessings dear sister.
Pennny, thank you for understanding where I am now with a great burden for the perscution of Christians. What you posted spoke to my spirit and brought me great comfort. I have been saying the same thing to others, we are now in the last days and satan is bringing this on Christians because he knows he has a short time left. Btw I did research on the vaccines and the side effects and I recant that statement I made that they should be forced on kids even over the objection of the parent. The child's parents should have the final say. Peace and blessings to you and Dorcas and all. Easter is coming up but there will be no comment from me.
Jessica, I agree. In our town we have a Homeless Shelter that people can give support to with their gifts of food, money or clothing. We have a Battered Woman's Shelter and a van that brings them and their children tto church and could go on and on but I said all that to say this. Here we have a place that homeless people gather and live. We had some really unusual weather last week with snow and ice and really cold. A homelss woman died down there under the bridge where they gather. They think she died from exposure to the weather. Her body has been sent to Litter Rock but haven't heard anything yet. Very sad but what else can you do for them? Just hope this will at least save some babies.
I just commented on this on the Franklin thread. Right Johng and Jessica. We were asked by a group that were over there who decided to stay rather than leave. They asked for prayers from everyone that the e- mails with pictures of some of these children being with the isis people..some already dead. They want us to cover them with our prayers. Let us set aside our differences and cover these people with our prayers. Jim, forget the past. It doesn't help to look at what's been done other than learn from our mistakes and right the wrong that's been done which I really don't see happening.
Dorcas, I understand what you are saying but since I have never been a Catholic, know very little about their beliefs and have no desire to be one yet sometimes I am condemned for not standing against them personally. Billy and Franklin probably feel the same way..I am not God and I will not worry about those who claim to be christians that is not my job and I am so glad it's not. There is coming a Judgement Day and we all have to stand before God to give account of our own sins and then the sheep and goats are going to be seperated, it will be then that Jesus will say,"Depart from me I never knew you" I believe we should be a witness to those God sends into our lives out of love for them. I get overwhemed trying to win the world. I pray for those poor christians that are being persecuted and someone sent me an e-mail with picture of the children being killed and it's something I will never forget. I know why there is a hell and judgement coming and God's wrath poured out. The ones that sent the photos out are the ones that have stayed to help them and asked that it be sent to everyone we know and for us to cover them with our prayers as they face this evil and minister to those who face it.
Franklin as far as I know has never been on Larry King, never said anything to Schuller, and like me and my daughter we disagree on politics as well as other issues. Stop putting Franklin down because he and his father are not joined at the hip. However, I am on facebook and just recently this quote was on there with a picture of Billy Graham," It's the Holy Spirit's Job to Convict, God's Job to Judge and My Job to Love" Amen, Billy Graham and if more did this rather than point fingers ( with 4 pointing back) how much better this world would be.
They called and said it was not serious. Nothing to worry about, will not have go to a liver specialist. Thanks for your prayers, pennned, Dorcas, and others who prayed.Doctor will explain more when he sees him in a month.
Pennny, you are right about it being now and not future.. better get prepared folks and put on the whole armour of God every day because it is here now. The war on Christianity has been escalting and who would have thought that America would be what iit is today. Right on, pennny. Still praying for your situation and thank you for praying for mine. We go this morning for the MRI and I am at peace because of the prayers being sent to God by you and others.
Wow, that's true PS. Mine has so many Christian apps like Charles Spurgeon's devotionals and Christian books life story like George Mueller and JC Ryle is on here and J.W. Towzer. It is another sign how the government can take over our lives and again are we now seeing the grooming for the take over of the Antichrist when he does come on the scene? Just wondering.
Jayjay, so kind of you to write and encourage me in this. He has wanted to be a Marine for several years. That has been his goal since 6th grade. We had a reception for him in one of the hotels with friends and family giving him a send off, showing our love and support. A group of Marines just happened by and stopped to eat and fellowship with him and even took a picture with him. I thought it was a blessing for him and all of us. Thanks for your prayers and kind thoughts..very uplifting. Pennned, will keep you in my prayers about your needs, we so need each others prayers to keep us strong in Him. Ladybug, I have read George Muller's story and liked pennned said the verse you quoted is something we can all try to attain in our own lives. My apology for misunderstanding what you were trying to say.That happens a lot when we write rather than talk, at least my comments come off different than I intended. I feel blessed to have such caring brethen. Jessica, I think of you at times and pray for you when I do. Jayjay, it's my son's son that is in the Marines and he is a very strong Christian man and has been standing with him in this decision. We all have. You know, I was praying one day and trying to find comfort in all this and this thought came to me that he has a warrior's hear
Btw, Dorcas you have encouraged me by your post and I did get the devotional you mentioned to me, "The Believer's Daily Remembrancer" by James Smith which has been really helpful and encouraging also. Had to order it from Amazon.com actually I hardly ever Iind what I want in Christian bookstores.
Dorcas, what you said was true about my anger and taking root and that's what is bothering me. Thank you for helping me see this and that you understand. Forgiving is hard at times but we have to for our own spiritual walk. A lot going on in my life right now. Husband has had a spot on his liver found and due for an MRI tuesday. Grandson is in Boot Camp headed for who knows where and I try to be strong in Christ but I can't watch the news anymore even though I know somebody has to stop the evil of the Isis. Thanks for your prayers for me. Blessings to you and family.
Ladybug, are you saying you have died to self, to my opinion?? You just gave your opinion on me and any post I put on here, to the Bookstore that in your opinion is unfit. To your opinion that christians should be not get involved in the mayors decision, without a vote from the people, to allow male and female in restrooms. Everything said on here you have an opinion on. Well, nice try but sorry you are nothing like George Muller. I am not hurt by anyone's comments on here but I do feel anger and that's not helping me grow in Christ at all so I will leave you with your opinions and get off this forum. I am not a follower and so I have my own thoughts and beliefs which I state and think later that maybe it's not good to do that or I should have said it in a different way. This is not good for me spiritually and I have to leave.
Shane, nothing could be more edifying for anyone than that scripture. I can disagree and they can disagree with me and I still have God's agape love for them. Maybe not philio( frienship) exactly. Takes two for that each one working at it. Really care about you Shane, no matter what is said. I forgive with God's help. Blessings to you.
