Amazing grace..one man saved by the simple words,"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved." What an awesome testimony of this man's salvation and the preacher who led him to Christ and he lived to tell it. One hundred years later, still being told and still touching lives, even on here for those who have never heard this story and are being touched by it.
Jessica, glad you are posting also. Your posts do bless me and I know God does not expect to do more than we are able. I, too, have had to slow down a lot because of health issues and I post here as one thing I can do. If you have RA then you do have a very hard time. My sister-in-law has that same disease and Lupus. She still can get around but never knows what will happen in the future. She was in a trial study to test a new drug and did so well, she believes she taking the real thing and not a sugar pill. Blessings and prayers dear sister. Please keep posting.Btw sometimes I post as Ginger
Phillip, we really do need to have a time with God everyday to read and meditate on the Bible and pray. I know where Gordo is. I was born and raised in Tuscaloosa, AL and had cousins that lived in Reform,AL.
When a party asks for a vote on whether to keep God in their platform or not and I see muslims holding up signs, chanting no,no,no. As well as other people there saying same thing. This plus all they stand for tells me more than I need to know to not vote Democrate! I think God is using Huckabee now, on Fox news to reach a lot more people than he ever would have in a church in Texarkana. He has a great sense of humour and the personality to reach people plus his calling from God to preach which he is actually doing right now to thousands and I think he is a great witness for God. !
As a reminder, a woman does not have to be married and a beautiful actress to be a fulfilled woman. Sometimes, God calls a christian woman into the mission fields as He did Amy Carmichal that went to India to minister to Indian children. Even as she was bedridden in pain after an accident, she was still a blessing in her writings. I am blessed every morning by reading her little book of devotionals. This is only one example of an unmarried woman that God used, Corrie ten Boom was another. Both of these and many more were fufilled, Christian women in God's will for their lives.
A beautiful woman inside and out, telling everyone how to be a bibical woman. Amazing how God can use even an actress, to get His message across on how to be a fufilled woman.Some young girl just might listen to her.
Mike Huckabee, is a true Christian and being from a little town in Arkansas and lived there until my husband retired, I know this to be true. He was a pastor of a Church in Texarkana until he ran for Governor of Arkansas. He has preached in the little Baptist church that ran around 90 people, that I attended, when we were between pastors. He is a devote Christian, intellegent and not afraid to speak out when necessary. Kudos to Mike Huckabee.
Walls of his homeland with much opposition from enemies.God is still in control. He puts Kings on the throne and takes them off. He delievered the Jews from Hilter in miraclous ways Obama, as our president could be a wake up call that America is at the tipping point of God's judgements. He has said we are no longer a Christian nation.
Cont.Amazing story of love and forgiveness. And of God's control even when the evil plans seem to have been worked out for the good of the conniving, jealous brothers God used it for the remnant of His people to not die in the famine that was coming to the land. I see God's hand on Daniel and his friends in Babylon where they were taken captive. Book of Easthe, became Queen and the Israelites were again saved by the hand of God..Nehemiah, King Artaxerxes's cupbearer was allowed to go rebuild the walls of Jeresul
God did not create man to be evil, that's the choice they make. He can use evil men according to His purposes, whether for good or bad...Then Joseph could not restrain himself before all those who stood by him, and he cried out," Make everyone go out from me!" So no one stood with him while Joseph made himself known to his brothers.vs2 And he wept aloud, and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard it.vs3 Then Joseph said to his brothers,"I am Joseph; does my father still live?" But his brothers could not answer him, for they were dismayed in his presence.vs4 and Joseph said to his brothers," please come near to me" So they came near." I am Joseph your brother whom you sold into Egypt.vs.5 " But now, do not be grieved or angry with yourselves because you sold me here: for God sent me before you to preserve life.Genesis 46:1-5
The ones that are helping my granddaughter are her grandparents on her mother's side not her dad and step mom. She is living with her grandparents and we togerther are encouraging her and her brother, through our love for them. I can't tell you the prayers that God has answered through out my life. Someimes it has been no or wait and when I look back, I thank God it wasn't answered, sometimes I don't know why but He knows and that's all I need to know.Btw, I know my son loves his kids but at this point in their lives, they can:'t see it.
My granddaughter has issues with anxities and depression. They sent her to get help to be able to attend college. He recommended she read a book a day. One of the books was 23 minutes in Hell. It changed her and caused her to get close to God again. She is back in Church. Helping her mom who had been on drugs and was put in jail for stealing from an older woman she was living with. She found God in prison and is in Rehab now. My granddaughter goes get her and takes her to church with her. Her dad remarried when she was a 5 yr old, her brother 4. They were mistreated by my son's wife and now have a lot of issues. I've prayed for them and my husband and I tried to help them with it. My prayers have begun to be answered. My granddaughter showed me a beautiful daily devotion she has down loaded on her iphone. God uses any means to reach someone even a movie or book, even if they no longer go to Church. Btw, that was one of my" want something from God prayers". I never try to put God in a box and tell Him you have to do it my way because that's the way I see it
Christropher, there is another book,"Heaven is For Real" that is based on a true story about a boy that died and went to heaven. I read the book and the boy was only about 4 yrs. Old when he got real sick and almost didn't make it. They are making a movie out of that book. I, for one believe God can use anything He chooses to accomplish His will and to reach someone for Christ. There will be scoffers and nay sayers, that will say never will that happen but God is doing a work in this world even though we may not be aware of it. We are seeing things changing on a daily basis. Who would have ever thought that gays would come out in such force that governments are bowing to their rights while Christians are made to defere to them even though it is against their beliefs of right and wrong. This is almost world wide and God is still in control of this world. Thanks for the encouaging comments.
Penny, that was kind of you to give an answer to the questions. It helps me to understand better when someone gives me reasons they believe the way they do. I am on a nook tablet and is hard to know how many words I have used, how many I have left but will try to remember to use scripture with my thoughts. I did with the last posts JohnUK, I was blessed and usually am in need of a blessing.Blessings back to you.
Sorry, didn't mean to put heresy there because I don't know. I'm sure you have scriptue that you see as being the way you think it is. So neither of us see it the same way and I am not going to judge you but just to say I will agree to disagree without trying to prove you wrong and me right.
I have a question. How do the "elect" know that they are truly the elect? Did you get a message from God saying you are one of those chosen to be the elect?matt.19:13 Then little children were brought to Him that He might put His hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebuked them.vs.14 But Jesus said," Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven." Vs15 And He laid His hands on them and departed from there. You need to be careful how you read the scriptures. It says here that children are accepted by Him until when and when will they be the elect. If they are so sinful at this point why did Jesus want to bless them? This predestination is the heresy here. You are judging and condemning people that you in your own mind say they are."Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children( humble),you will in no wise enter the kingdom of heaven matt.18:2-3 Converted means turn around. Who does the turning around? God? Because if I do then it's works?
I appreciate everybodies comments and Ladybug, just curious, what is Berean. Is it a Church? I have noticed seeing on the sermon list, Berean. What are their beliefs? I am really interested in knowing.
Maybe, God can actually use a movie with whatever, some are against, to reach a person who is lost but goes to see a Bible based, inspired by a true story movie. Maybe it starts him to thinking, even frightens him to the point he attends Church, talks to the pastor to find some answers to questions raised by the movie. Even reads the Bible to find the answer and behold he finds God and gets saved. Look at the bill board that went up as a result of the movie, so many are curious now and will go to see the Noah story that might otherwise have ignored it. Just saying.
