Last comment is good advice, leave it alone and give it God, pray for him and let the Holy Spirit deal with the issue. The more you try to use your thoughts and your beliefs it only causes more confusion and anger. Without faith itâ€™s impossible to please God. There is no way that our finite mind can understand Godâ€™s infinite Word. We understand enough to live for Him but our thoughts are not His thoughts. He gives me light on things that I am struggling with in my daily devotionals and sometimes I have to leave it in His and trust Him with it.The Bible is the infallible Word of God whether we understand everything in it or not. O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge -by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith. 1Timothy 6:20-21.
Back to thread, I believe the pulpits of today have lost some of its fire and thus power. The music is more for entertainment than worship it seems but then I am â€˜old school â€˜ according to my grandson with morals that are different than todayâ€™s.Our pastor preached on this yesterday. A series of sermons called Fake News with a serpent on cover of bulletin. First lies of Satan and last truths of God. According to God my morals and beliefs are eternally correct and will always be the same no matter what the morals of the world are. Living together without marriage ,adulterous relationships, abortion, homosexuality, transgender are all sins and must be repented of to be forgiven.
Will be praying for you Connor, that the God who knows all will use your physician to find the problem. May He restore you back to health. I always pray before I go to a doctor that God will use him to bring healing.
John Uk, I forgot to mention that once the shoe boxes have been filled and sent to Operation Shoe Box headquarters, each box is opened and examined to make sure it passes the rules set by them(canâ€™t put certain things in them) Then a pamphlet is put in each telling of Jesus and His love. Whatever is said, is allowed Iâ€™m sure. This same SS Class also uses their offerings for backpacks for the children here in our area to have a snack when they get home from school. A teacher in our class knows the ones that are in need of them(no one home because mothers having to work etc) This is a class of 70 women and most have some sort of physical problems but still carry on. Always thinking of others less fortunate.
Hi John Uk, thanks for sharing that. It is always interesting to read your posts about what is happening where you live .I so agree with you on this one. I failed to mention that the â€˜Christmas Shoe Boxâ€™ campaign each year is filled with toys and other things for Children because thatâ€™s who itâ€™s for the children that are suffering in these places. Have a blessed day, so thankful to have you as a Christian friend. Your comments are very encouraging to me and helpful in my walk with Christ and thatâ€™s important as we near the end time and the days get darker and evil grows rampant.
Franklin Graham sends these Christmas boxes as a way to show the love of God in case you havenâ€™t heard since he has been called a racist just thought I would enlighten some of you. How quick we are to point fingers and judge and I have to watch and pray about this because I have done the very thing I accuse others of doing.
Just an after thought to show where the Christmas boxes go. Ready? Are you sure? Ok here goes, they go overseas to war torn countries, like Afganistans and Muslim children to show them how cared about they are. To bring a little joy into an otherwise dreary environment. One Sunday School class raised money all year with garage sales, and donations of things to go in 8,000 boxes and money for shipping them. And for the Pharisees on here it was a Baptist Church with a big heart just going about Godâ€™s business.
We that are aware and awake see and understand what is actually happening not only here but worldwide as things will only get worse and worse until the Second Coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Better have oil in your lamps for the days will only get darker as we near the end.
A baby killed in the womb fine no problem we'll sell and use the parts. A baby born and unwanted by an unwed mother or for any other reason is jailed. Like a governor that released a prisoner so he wouldn't be deported and turns around and kills again. It's insane and wicked.
It seems like nothing the Grahams do goes over very well with Jimmy boy but that's ok neither did the words of Jesus go over well with the Pharisees and he was even put to death. As Christians we too will be put to death, tortured, ridiculed, business shut down and anything else Satan's people decide to do. Franklin has a death warrant hanging over his head and the only reason he is still speaking out is His love for his Father and love for the Muslims to speak the truth to them. Yes, he knows there is only One Way to God and that's through Jesus Christ and he proclaims it loudly. The best security guards of all surrounding him, angels from on high sent from the Father's hand.
Did not Russia contact and warn the Obama administration about the two brothers before they actually bombed and killed a little boy and severely injured others at the Boston Marathon?? A young woman made a comment on Facebook around the same time about her disappointment in Obama's reelection, saying "maybe someone will kill him." FBI at her doorstep like a chicken on a June Bug. She was fined and her picture plastered all over the Newspaper even though the girl had no intention whatsoever to carry out the act. The real warning from Russia ignored by FBI.
Sometimes we do our growing in Christ during the bad times in our lives and shine the brightest in the Dark Night of the soul. The storms buffets the oak tree and causes the roots to grow deeper and the tree grows stronger. God is getting His people ready for His soon coming.
Here in America it's Rick Warren and other preachers that believe exactly like him saying we can blend our religion and blur the lines to be in agreement and it's called Chris/lam. No we can't, only one Way to God and that's through Jesus Christ.
Dee, are you Pentecostal because my husband has a family that are and they believe in the same dress code that you do. I agree that so many women dress immodest even at church. I actually feel embarrassed for them. I do wear pants but not to look like a man and a man would look very weird should he wear one of my pant suits or outfits that are pink and colorful and there is no doubt in anyone's mind what gender I am. ðŸ˜‰ when I wear dresses it is always in modesty. I can't dress any other way since I was saved and filled with the Holy Spirit .
Thank you, (TMC) I agree with your comment about Russia and all, the thing being if we don't stop this chemical weapon now and just nip it in the bud as Barney Fiff used to say on Mayberry's Andy Griffin show, we will be facing much worse later on. Showing strength rather than weakness as we have done these last years. The prayers of God 's people is what we need now more than ever. Just got a text from my son who has heard from his son and all is well with him. He is safe and our prayers have been answered.
Thank you, penned, as usual you make a lot of sense in what is going on and appreciate you sharing your thoughts. Our country needs the prayers of Christians to intercede and give wisdom and guidance to our leaders.
Yes, the deeds done, when Isis used poison gas on innocent children Syria was bombed by air strikes at storage sites and missils from ships.My grandson is on one of those ships somewhere in that region, we don't know but God knows where and that's all I need to know. Please keep him in your prayers today. Thank you and God bless. Remember those families as well that have loved ones fighting for those who can't defend themselves.
