  1. Past hour
  2. Obviously, on this side of Heaven, we don't know whether we'll be doing so or not. But when I finally cross that finish line and I get to see Jesus face to face and am safely in Heaven, I'd love to think we could do what we would do if we were in a race here on Earth after we've crossed the finish line, and that's cheer on and root for those others as they run to the finish line.
  3. Some are broking, we call them brokers, and some are broken, so kind words are spoken. Good post, Rebecca. Thanks.
  4. His name forever is the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob, and if Pharoah and Israel asks what His name is, to say, I am hath sent him. The Amen, is who was sent to us, much more than an attribute, complete reality and where all blessing comes from.. Deuteronomy 32:40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever. Exodus 3:15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations. Exodus 3:14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you. Now is the name of Christ actually the Amen ? His name also is, wonderful, counsellor, the Mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of peace. His name is called the word of God. No man knows His name, because nobody knows He is the Amen and knows He is the Word. This is also to know His name is as told already, King of kings, and Lord of lords.. Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 11:5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. Revelation 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. Revelation 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords. What is His name, what is His Sons name, if you can tell, His name is Jesus Christ the name above every name, but the part that is denied all of the time is what I just told.. Proverbs 30:4 Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell? John 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. Revelation 3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. Philippians 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
  5. Good morning, Here is an article that I read this morning. It's about what the Bible says who we are in Christ. Very encouraging and reassuring. (From biblestudytools.com - Lisa Brown). What Does the Bible Say about Who I Am in Christ? I hear this quite a bit from Christians, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” This is a popular Scripture taken from Philippians 4:13. I would argue that this verse is only powerful in our life if we have a decent understanding of who we are in Christ. It’s in having a clear identity in Christ that gives us strength to overcome the hard things in life. The following are 5 truths from the Bible that explain who we are in Christ. Truth 1 - I’m Only Significant Because a Significant Christ Lives in Me We are not what we have and what we do. As Christians we are more than what meets the eye. In each believer there is a living God who loves us no matter what. Our relationship with Christ doesn���t rest alone in what good deeds we do or how we perform in life. Instead, our focus must be on what our God is doing in us and through us. We are His temple. We move and act on His behalf. We are His co-workers in spreading the gospel. Depending on how one looks at their purpose in life will determine their beliefs about themselves. When we feel insignificant, we can remind ourselves that in Christ we are significant based on the truth that Christ actively moves through us. Often times our ego gets in our way, and we don’t clearly see Christ working through us. Truth 2 – I’m Truly Accepted Because of Christ’s Love We all, at one point or time, have felt the brutal pain of rejection. It can take the living breath out of us and leave us feeling unloved. Jesus understands this rejection and the pain He endured on the cross for us was indeed the most brutal act of mankind. Because of His death on the cross we have victory. Jesus didn’t go through this kind of torture for us to live life feeling unloved. He did this because He loves us and we have a choice daily to choose Him. His love is enough. We are complete in Him. Things can get pretty messy when we mess up our life and others. It’s heart work to travel down the long road of forgiveness. It’s not uncommon for Christians to believe that they are failures. It hurts when others turn against us, but God will never reject us. We are redeemed and forgiven. Truth 3 – I’m Secure in Christ Because I Cannot Be Separated from Him. Christ is with us, and there is nothing and no one who can get in between us and our Savior without Him knowing about it. We can’t be separated from Christ. People come and go in our life, but Jesus stays for good! We have a friend who will not leave us in the mud. He is all about helping us get unstuck. We must not listen to our fear. We have been given the Spirit of power, love, and a sound mind. We will not have the abundant life that Christ has for us if we don’t rest our security in Him. Life in Christ is filled with surprises, miracles, and joy. It’s in Christ that we have peace. Disappointment and loss are part of our story. We don’t always understand why God allows certain things to happen. What we do know, is that God has a purpose for our life. Our assurance in this sets us free from insecurity and gives us a life of security. Truth 4 – I’m a Minister of God’s Word Because of What Jesus Did on the Cross. In Christ we have forgiveness and we are obligated to deliver God's salvation message to others. We are saved and changed so that all can know the good news of the gospel. We were not saved just to sit around all quiet about it. People are hurting, broking, afraid and uncertain about their future. We can tell them that we have been adopted as God’s child when we accepted Jesus into our life. The Word of God brings hope to those who hunger and thirst for change in their life. We are Christ’s witness for the lost souls who don’t know the richness of living life in Christ. We are the light of the world. People will know we are Christians by our love for one another. Truth 5 – I’m a Citizen of Heaven! Earth isn’t our everlasting home. Our citizenship is in heaven. Together we eagerly wait for Jesus to come and take us to live with Him forever. In the meantime we have direct access to God through the Holy Spirit. When days are long and nights are painful, we can remember where our real home is. This life of ups and downs are only temporary. In the loving arms of Jesus, we can find grace and mercy in time of need. We are united with our Savior. I am one in spirit with Him and so are you! Jesus doesn’t call us His servants, as a matter of fact he calls us His friends. He tells us that servants do not know what the Master’s business is. “I have called you friend, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you” (John 15:15). Jesus is with us while we wait for His return. It’s important that we spend time in His Word and learn who He says we are. We are His child and for God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16). This world is not our home and for many Christians we feel like we don’t belong. The hard truth is that we don’t belong here. We belong with Christ in the heavenly places. The good news is we can have heavenly moments with Christ now! It’s in these times we find His strength to help us carry on.
  6. This may be true of a lot of Christian forums, but it is still a heartbreaking thing to see so many “hearts” divided. There are so many divisions among us. There is very little edification, just so much contending, this group against the other group. How would it be if we all had one “heart” and we made it our goal to avoid offending each other? I wish traditions of man would cease and we could do away with these acronyms and such. The Bible is ALL TRUTH, and it’s supposed to flow in TRUTH. Let’s endeavor to understand ALL scripture as it’s written, and in context. This endless accusing of each other is not pleasing to our Father—not at all. My heart is heavy this morning. May our Father forgive us for what we’re doing with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. So many people are reading what we say…. Are we driving them away instead of bringing them into the Flock?
  7. Not sure why people are having issues with the link. Worked fine for me. Don't worry though, nothing to see there but more sickness.
  8. Psalms 149:3-5, “Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. (4) For the Lord takes pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation. (5) Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.” The saints of the Lord are to be joyful in glory, which means that we are to glorify the Lord in our present condition, in the place of his favor. We praise and we sing for he bestows honor and glory upon us. All too often my praise seems to follow my heart. When I am filled with joy and happiness I whistle and I sing with a cheerful voice, but when my heart is heavy and I am in sadness or sorrow that cheerful voice is harder to find. The power of praise and the power of being joyful in glory are based upon the glory of the Lord and not upon our condition. The condition of my love for the Lord should not change based on my condition at the moment for love should be constant and unwavering. Some rejoice in the glory of their condition when they are in a condition of wealth and blessings, but glorifying the Lord is to be based upon his glory and not upon our glory or our condition. I praise the Lord for he is the Lord, and he is worthy of all my praise no matter what my condition might be. In sunshine or in storm, in joy or in sorrow, we are to be joyful in his glory and praise him.
  9. Beautiful....thanks for sharing it!
  10. Today
  11. Life is so very hard sometimes.…the grieving for a lifetime ….no moving on from it, no getting over it, no fix and no solution to the heartache….Period. The grief that lasts forever… But deep sorrow can bring unspeakable Joy….and when the Joy comes, you feel it deeply... 2 Corinthians 1:3-5: 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any [a]trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our [b]consolation also abounds through Christ.
  12. I'm sorry, too, that you are suffering so. Cast yourself on the Lord and know that He does love you and will help you through it all. Just rest in Him.

    Joyful Update

    I'm also very glad she is going to church and it sounds like a good one!
  14. I believe on Christ, He is my Salvation. It's all about Jesus.
  15. Hi Neighbor, That`s good for you. I was really referring to the thought that people aren`t as free to discuss and share as when they are in a smaller group. Also all our church meetings run by organisations are open to the public. Must be different over your way. Marilyn.
  16. I don't know why....I clicked the link just now and the article and the tweets from pro-lifers came up.
