Some still keep trying to hide from God, and don't realize that He already has them contained. I do not wish a fate of eternal rejection and the wrath of God on any after their deaths, as God's life never ends but their's will. This is a promise.
There is no excuse for not knowing God is real and was openly available to all during life, at this point. It is proven, it has happened and is happening even now. Those who are yielded, obedient people to God, or at least are around people that are, have all the signs, wonders and hard evidence atheists, and all others, *claim* to want. In reality, they only want to do what they want and continue to resist even when the truth is staring them eye to eye. Some have so walled themselves off and "protected" themselves from being saved, it is going to be a great, epic tragedy when their lives end on this earth, the walls are forced down, and they realize they were in great, eternal error, blind to the truth!
The time of ignorance is over. Hopefully people who still grasp for reasons to reject God today do not remain too stubborn to be saved before their impending deaths. They need to believe on the name of Jesus Christ and know that they have eternal life (1 John 4), living for Him, before it is too late. A fool waits...
Well, it is determined at conception based on which chromosome the sperm that fertilized the egg is carrying. Now, if they are saying that a person can pick and choose their gender after being born, then that is 100% wrong.
"Hey, newborn! What gender do you want to be?"
Sigh, if only such simple things would wake people up.
I would be willing to wager the owner gives an "apology" soon before his legal teeth get kicked in. Then that "honorable judge" would then say "Hey, it's cool. He apologized. Case dismissed. Don't forget to pay those $100k+ fines now, Christian Bakers!"
Great Sermon! Thank you for uploading this message from Voddie Baucham. I felt very blessed having pastor Voddie for the Rezolution conference held in Johannesburg, South Africa This sermon- The Three Trees- is a wonderful sermon on why work is critical and central for every Christian.
Oh, please do pray more for Satan's tactics and schemes to be exposed. Continue to pray this sex perversion stuff and those that abide it down. You currently have superior numbers and firepower in spiritual warfare against Satan and his forces, and it is showing. Do not stop, do not slack, do not get lazy in your duty, do not stop praying and do not mess up. Be very careful who you vote into any position of authority from now on, as untold damage and loss of souls will be the result if you do not continue to take this seriously.
I am going to get to share my testimony on the free car from God at church soon. I have had the opportunity to share it with others in prayer meetings, at the encouragement of a prayer leader from a completely different, unreleated church out of state. Also, I am now using the car to drive an older couple to and from church as well as other places if need be.
The older lady said she had something to say to be me, but was afraid to do so! I encouraged her to say it. She said that she felt I had a missionary and evangelist calling. Please pray for me to be effective in God's ministry, and that I present this testimony correctly. It is for His pleasure. I keep His commandments and I do what is pleasing in His sight, and He has heard, confirmed and given me what I asked.
1 John 3 19 This is how we know that we belong to the truth and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence: 20 If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. 21 Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God 22 and receive from him anything we ask, because we keep his commands and do what pleases him. 23 And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us.
ladybug wrote: Kenneth, thanks for giving more details. Yes, I will be praying for your friend, and for you. By the way, I do encourage you to read about the life of George Mueller, I provided the link earlier. I think it will bless you greatly! You might want to also google and read about street preacher Robert Flockhart, it is a blessing as well.
Wow! I just started listening to George Mueller's stuff on YouTube, and it brought tears to my eyes. You were right. It was and did bless me! I have a similar prayer to the one he did. I will see what the Lord does, praise God and share the testimony!
I am currently listening to these: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkK_nlKUWoo&list=PL0uQwjs8gtL92GLqzjzHXy5VySTIJMYxr
Ladybug, I know that we do need to be born again of the Spirit of God as Jesus taught. . We have a new life which we live for Christ, and we must truly follow HIm. Talk is cheap, even in the bible. Our actions, the fruit of our life, must testify that we truly are God's children, and that Jesus really is our Master, our Lord. We need to turn from our own ways so we don't perish, and turn to God so we have eternal life as He desires. Confess sin, be forgiven and cleaned up by Him (1 John 1).
Also the man called me today. His name is Kenneth too. Please pray for him as he is struggling with sin and confusion in his life, and hurts from the past all the way back to childhood. He called and asked for certain if I would pick him up for church Sunday. Please pray he will fight the good fight of faith, and finish the race strong. Please pray that he dedicates himself wholly to God and is serious about serving the Lord. He needs someone on his side.
Before my car was totaled last Summer, I regularly drove people to and from church, to the store and helped and blessed people. I kept God's command using His vehicle: love God, love people (for brevity). People prayed to Jesus to be their Lord and savior in that car, confessed, and repented of sins. Lives were changed.
I asked God for a free car, or one with low payments, on June 10, 2017. I let God know that He would receive praise, glory, worship in Spirit and Truth, and that I would tell the story. Within 15 minutes, a man was telling me to my face he would give me a free car and he also said "This is a move of God." During lunch, I told a sister in Christ working at the grocery store about it, showing her the picture of the vehicle. She said "Praise the Lord!"
Not only did I need a car, but now I can also continue to serve God using it just as I did before. There is an older couple I want to drive to church instead of having them call the Metro services, and now the new guy "Jeff" wants me to drive him to church too. I enjoy being used in God's ministry. I asked for it in prayer, and I've gotten it!
I assure you I am serving the Lord and making sure I present Him in the way I should. I share testimony with people not so that they can think Jesus is a "genie in a bottle", and I tie the testimony to scripture to show them very clearly that God is real. I have told many God is real and here is proof.
Now that I actually will be able to hang out with the man on Sunday, and have lunch with him, I guarantee he is going to grow in the knowledge and obedience of God. Believe it! Pray for him that he will be a mighty man of God and not shallow! I will disciple him!
Anyway, it would be nice to start seeing people praise God for what is happening with the testimonies on this site. They are doing it in groceries stores, cyber cafes, diners and wherever I run into people in the public, that is for sure.
This summer, I shared the Lord Jesus and witnessed to a man I will call "Jeff". I also shared my testimony of how I prayed for the car back on June 10. Within 15 minutes after praying to God, someone was telling me to my face they were going to give me a free car. "This is a move of God," that person said. Jeff heard me, believed, and accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord, and Savior without 5 minutes. As weeks passed, he did not see the car materialize and he teased me viciously about it.
"I don't see that car you told me about," Jeff said. I assured him he would.
Today, I drove to his apartment in the free car. When I got there, and stepped out of the vehicle, a man I did not know was standing in front of the apartment, saw me and quickly went inside. Soon Jeff had come down on his own accord and met me. "You got it," he said.
I took him to the car and praised and blessed God, and tied the testimony to scripture. Jeff stood in awe, stroking his chin. I told him this car blessed me, God and people. I would give rides to the store or wherever if needed..
"No," Jeff said. He looked at the car, then to me. "But you know what you can do? You can take me to church."
Looks like I won't need to wait a year to see fruit from him accepting, eh? That was SO fun!

As for my days, that is in His hands, not yours: Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass; (Job 14:5) And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; (Acts 17:26)
I am not mocking God. Your accusations are merely your own opinion. God himself sees me as holy, blameless and free from accusation according to His word. I stand firm and unfazed.
Colossians 1 21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of[g] your evil behavior. 22 But now he has reconciled you by Christâ€™s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusationâ€” 23 if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel.

(Psalms 50:21) For he is not a man, as I am, that I should answer him, and we should come together in judgment. (Job 9:32)
Rodney, bless you! You will have a great day and many great days to come!
