  1. Logan is out of surgery. He's in a recovery room and will move to icu next. They said everything went great
  2. Hello, I'm Aiden, 25 years old. I go to college and always want to know what God wants to say to me. I want to see and hear a lot and grow up.
  3. Happy thanksgiving one and all and wherever you are in the world! thank You Father God for Your plan of Mercy and Grace through Your Only begotten Son Christ Jesus.
  4. I've been needing to do this, turtletwo. This winter has been a dark time, the first time since the Lord saved me that I've found myself trapped within the prison of my own mind. I never thought I'd find myself in that horrible, chaotic place again. There are no words with which to express my gratitude to our Lord Jesus Christ. I was certain that I was alone but the Lord was there with me. Instead of being tormented and overwhelmed, Christ started reasoning with me and I could hear him through the storm. I wanted to run away... but the Lord reminded me that I already did. I ran just as far as I could go and he was waiting for me at the end. I told him I knew he would cast me into the fire... but why would our Father gather me in his hand only to cast me aside? I despaired for the lady's sake but God soothed my fears... he provides not only for me but for her as well. I wanted to die to but the Lord said I would live instead... and he didn't rebuke me for my afflictions. Christ led me out of them instead. He gave something to me this time: things will never be the same again. Hallelujah!

  6. Hi Kayla. You are very welcome to join our fellowship. We are a family and I am sure you will fit right in. Besides, being from Missouri, the "Show Me State," I am sure you will want to take the tour here. In fact, Missouri has been called the "Mother of the West" and the "Cave State." Lots to learn here from you I'm sure. God bless.
  7. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I'm looking forward to turkey. One of these years, though, I intend on trying a tofurky (a tofu turkey). I like tofu well enough already, but the other family members want turkey. Refuse to even try tofu.
  8. Jesus-what a beautiful and powerful name!!
  9. Welcome Jimma, We have a wonderful prayer forum with many strong prayer warriors. Please check that out. In the meantime, Lord, you know what's on the heart and mind of Jimma, I pray that whatever is sought is aligned with your will to deliver in your timing. Thank you Lord, in Jesus name. Amen.
  10. Oh, sorry I misread. And thanks for the link. He shouldn't allowed to hold any job which would require him to work or interact with children, that's for sure.
  11. Here is an article to point out further problems with the Alpha Course. Problems of the Alpha Course The Alpha Course tends to generalize Christianity and glosses over many of the distinctive doctrines of the many different denominations. For example, Roman Catholics have complained that there is no emphasis on the Virgin Mary. Baptist’s are upset that teachings on baptism are ignored. What is not ignored, and in fact is overemphasized, is the infilling of the Holy Spirit, the baptism of the Spirit, tongues, and healing by prayer and therein lies some of the problems with this course. For example, the Book of Acts is taught as normative doctrine instead of its intended use as a historical account of the church. Conversely, the letters (epistles) of the New Testament are not so much normative but address specific issues that affect churches and are not construed as specific doctrines. This is just the opposite of the way the books in the New Testament were intended by their writers. This course tends to over emphasize the work of the Holy Spirit instead of Jesus Christ and His glorification. There is also a gaping hole where major doctrines are not taught, like sin, sanctification, glorifying Jesus Christ, and loving one another. The narrowness of these courses do little to allow an all-encompassing view of the story of redemption, the fall of man, the work at Calvary by Christ, and the duty of Christians in the church. What theologians say about Jesus is emphasized above and over His actual ministry and commands. It tends to completely ignore the Great Commission, even though Jesus’ imperative command was given 5 times just before His Ascension. The Alpha Course, by not defining sin properly, fails to give the emphasis of Jesus sacrifice, the reason for His sacrifice, and for His resurrection. These are the main themes of the Gospel, yet they are glossed over by the course and instead give ambiguous information about Christianity in general. The course is highly superficial and there are very few specifics except in the gifts of the Spirit. Actually the role of the Holy Spirit is over emphasized giving a slightly different view of the Spirit. The Holy Spirit in many cases, Whose purpose is to always point too and glorify Christ, is elevated in status and importance over Jesus Christ and the Father. The gifts of the Spirit are sought after, prayed for, and raised in importance above that of Jesus Christ’s rightful place in the church. The central focal point is not Christ but the gifts of the Spirit, which is contrary to what Christ taught the disciples in His High Priestly Prayer in the Gospel of John. Dangers of the Alpha Course The Alpha Course is now the fastest growing Christian education course in the world, according to Christianity Today, and it is growing at an exponential rate. Dangers are that the main message of the gospel is glossed over to make it have basically little or no effect. The crucial elements of Communion, Calvary, the cross, the reason for Christ’s sacrifice, and the inerrancy of the Word of God, and the Bible, are not emphasized. Even the importance of the Great Commission is missing. Also missing is the essential element of salvation by grace alone in Christ alone by faith alone. The tendency of the course is to speed through or do a fly over of the Bible in general. A crash course of the framework of the Bible can never replace the essential doctrines of the faith. For example there is nothing given of the desire of Christ to make disciples of all nations, to come out of sin, to repent and be baptized, to grow in grace and knowledge. A simple rote memorization of the Bible or of God is nothing short of being called the great omission. Even the Devil and his demons know God exists and Satan could quote the Bible. The demons believe in God and tremble but this doesn’t mean that they are acting on this belief. What is missing is the desire to be hungering and thirsting after righteousness or to have practical applications like loving and serving one another that is covered by Paul in 1 Corinthians 13 and Romans 12. There is a lack of focus on being regenerated, being renewed in mind, or growing in holiness through a lifelong sanctification process. The greatest problem may be the elevating of the gifts of the Spirit and the lack of not glorifying Jesus Christ, to Whom the Holy Spirit is to testify of, speak of, and Who strives to glorify. It seems to be more of a me-centered teaching. The greater proportion of teaching about the gifts of the Spirit indicates that the gifts are more important than the Gift Giver. Despite the Alpha Course’s best intention, it is overtly charismatic and under emphasizes the holiness of God, thus the “works” of the Spirit are seen as more important that true worship of God in Spirit and in Truth. The experiences are seen as a validation of the Spirit’s presence more than an inner conversion and the outward expression of that conversion. For example, there are testimonies of hundreds who have attended their conferences who have been “bounced” from them due to their lack of speaking in tongues rather than Jesus saying that we would know them by their fruits.
  12. Hi! Glad you are here, a good place to make some friends. You can consider me a friend. I enjoyed your lovely Rigoletto music video!
  13. Holding Logan and your entire family up in prayer
  14. To be sheep is to be out in the pasture eating grass and good water. The Sheppard leads the flock to good grass. Our grass is the word of God and. We are lead by the holy spirit. He opens all things to our understanding. He fights against the wolves for us. And his Angel's help us like sheep dogs protect the sheep. Jesus feeds us the word of God which abides forever. Is not Jesus such a good shepherd ? The best of the best.

    The Sheep

    Yup--we see this over and over. John 10:27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. This is very encouraging because it is a sure way, in experience, that we can know that we are one of His sheep. We hear His voice. This can come in different ways--but most of us can recall clearly when we first heard His voice when He 'saved' us. I still small voice in the mind, a conviction of sin by the Spirit, a word of caution or a clear word of instruction. At some time and at some point, you heard His voice. Be encouraged and joyous. The Good Shepherd speaks and we hear. He is more than capable of opening our ears according to His will. Have an ear out always---and listen.
  16. No, he doesn't. He preaches god's love for all and that Jesus died for us all. I know the sort of street preaching you mean, and this man's preaching is the opposite of that. I prayed for him when he was in London, and all charges were dropped. He is a loving preacher. I saw interviews with him on YouTube when he was in London. He preaches love of all, and gives out hundreds of bibles freely.
  17. I am asking for us to pray that @BeauJangles gets some rest, some peaceful sleep. I hope he doesnt mind me doing this. I cant find any rules about starting a prayer thread for someone else. blessings.
  18. Amen. "Test all things; hold fast what is good." (1 Thess 5:21) NKJV "But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good." NASB The Holy Spirit is the Teacher we can always trust. "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, HE WILL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you." (John 14:26) ------------------------------------- "However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, HE WILL GUIDE YOU INTO ALL TRUTH; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come." (John 16:13) ------------------------------------- "But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God." For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual." (1 Cor. 2:10-13) We are in good hands when we look to the Holy Spirit. Praise God!
  19. The reason why "resurrection" is so important to a born again child of God is because the "resurrection" is THE hinge, ...the HINGE between the death of Jesus on the Cross and His Ascension back to His rightful place in Heaven, we are told in these magnificent Kenosis verses: ...who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Himself the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Php 2;6-8 The HINGE on which our Salvation turns: Therefore God has highly exalted Him, and has given Him a name which is above every name, Php 2;9 He "emptied" Himself and came to this planet in the form of a servant and in the likeness of a man, ...on the Cross He voluntarily took on ALL of the sins of humanity and He died, for three days and three nights man waited, both on the earth and under the earth, ...for three days and three nights time entered into Eternity and the Heavenly host and the demonic hordes waited, ...what would happen??? Then "power" went out from the Throne of God the Father, "power" came forth from God the Holy Spirit, and the Spirit of the God-Man Jesus of Nazareth said..., "it's time," ...and Eternal life entered back into that body that was buried in Joseph's tomb, Jesus resurrected, mortality "put on" immortality, ...in allowing His Resurrection His Father proclaimed that His Son's Blood was sufficient to pay the price of the sins of all humanity, man's redemption had been accomplished and Jesus was welcomed by His Father and returned to Heaven in all of the Glory that He had "emptied Himself of: He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures; 1 Cor 15:4 The Resurrection is the HINGE, the Resurrection is our guarantee, the Resurrection is the infallibly proof we need and cling to, and we put our Trust and Faith in, it's so important to/for us, that the Holy Spirit writing through the quill of John confirms, attests assures us; I have written these things to you who believe on the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have everlasting life, and that you may believe on the name of the Son of God. 1 John 5:13 And, brothers, I declare to you the Gospel which I preached to you, which also you have received, and in which you stand; 1 Cor 15:1 Lord bless
  20. So, so sorry, Jayne. Father, merciful and gracious, we lift up Jayne and her mother to You, that you will heal and bless according to Your will. We thank You for hearing our prayers and for Your promise that... Amen.
  21. I see the word 'toxic' used to associate to differing people. I see the word 'autistic' used. I have been called all kinds of things including toxic by those that would never want to know me or understand the way my mind works. My little boy is autistic (on the spectrum). There is a saying: 'when you know one autistic person - YOU KNOW ONE..'. We are all different and if we do not want to understand, then we definitely should move away WITHOUT dropping 'hints' that may be taken in a derogatory manny. I am probably a high functioning member of the Aspergers group. As such, I have been labeled everything from sociopath to toxic and other much worse titles by the shrink-groups that love labels. I am fond of saying, 'label are for soup cans and not people'. It has caused me untold pain to be thus treated. If one attempts to understand and communicate with what you might call 'strange' people, try to forget labels and treat them like the individual humans they are. It will help a great deal.
  22. @turtletwo I’m sorry to hear this. That your son is in so much pain with his back and yet has to plod on carry on working when in so much pain. I will carry on praying for him. Xxx
  23. Hi Newsie. Now you have a family on Worthy as well. If you receive Jesus Christ as your Master and Lord, you will also be adopted into God's family. Adoption was God's idea first.
  24. I have prayed for him and you too. God bless.
  25. I have prayed for you. God bless you.
  26. These are a few of my favorite bible verses and hope that it will uplift and give hope to someone.. Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God.
  27. Praying for her now. You who had began a good work in her will complete it and restore her back to wholeness
  28. My dear brother, I am praying! 1. Psalm 46:1 For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. According to alamoth. A song. God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.. 2. Nahum 1:7 The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. 3. Psalm 62:8 Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. 4. . Psalm 34:17-18 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. 5. Psalm 91:15 When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. 6. Psalm 145:18 The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. 7. Psalm 9:9-10 The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you. May these seven verses( one to meditate upon for each day) bring peace to your heart and mind. May I also recommend reading the book or watching the movie Fireproof! God bless 😇
  29. I cant remember last thanksgiving. It was barely a week after my final round of chemo and I was not well. In a previous year I had a tooth pulled the day before, so eating was not an option that day either lol. Typically we eat a large midday turkey dinner, then spend the rest of the day outside playing. Sunny phoenix is lovely this time of year. Then we eat another meal later that day and watch any holiday specials. This year my family is too spread out and I cant drive long distances yet. Im also not up to cooking. So we will likely get a to go order from one of the cheaper places that are open and have a picnic in the park. We might do some low energy type activities outside too. At least this year I can eat lol.
  30. Many Missionaries in Iran have been imprisoned and tortured for years.....some are released or manage to escape to another country. Then they go right back......THAT is heroism.They seldom get any notice- we are too busy handing out “ Oscars” and “ People’s Choice” awards.Tom Cruise is a hero because he sometimes does his own stunts.Whoopee.
  31. Praying for you @Blue Lulu and the Lord will protect you, your credit card and finances. God bless, Becky.
  32. Praying for you John. May Jesus bless you and show you His path and lead and guide you in the way He wants you to go. And I pray for His provision for you. He is the God of miracles! He loves it when we can’t humanly see a way out of things. Then He steps in at just the right time. This shows His glory! I pray He steps in for you at just the right time. And He will do it! God bless. Becky.
  33. don't think Jesus would have anything to do with the slightest thing that's connected with demons..
  34. I have prayed for him and for you too. God bless.
  35. I have prayed for everyone involved in this prayer request including you. God bless.
  36. I was backslidden when our first son was born. Knowing that my influence would only last a few years and then their dad would be the big influence, I first started again following Christ, and then started praying for my husband's salvation. It took a few yeas since he had been pretty hardened and enslaved in sin. But he first asked God to help him and then told me he didn't know why he had waited so long. He had peace!. He was baptized 6 months later and then our sons started begging to be baptized as well. 45 years later they and their families are serving God. Your family certainly will follow your leadership. It may even influence their children. That is why an unsaved person's sins are visited on their children down to the 3rd and 4th generations. It is the ungodly influence on them. So I am asking God to also make you a godly influence on your children. So don't lie to Him, tell Him exactly how your feel and why. Then pray "God have mercy on me, a sinner", You only need to ask God to make you willing. God is good at that.
  37. OK, this is where you are going to have to step up to the plate. It isn't the nurse's job to talk to the doctor about your baby....well, in part it is. But ultimately, YOU have to speak up and say, "what about this rash on his face"? Instead of getting on the internet and talking to us about how scared you are for your baby. Get on the phone and make an appointment with the doctor. Or bundle him up and take him there and ask to be scheduled in. Or go to an 24-hour clinic. Or go to the emergency room at a hospital. Yes, what everyone calls the old "kissing disease" can be harmful to a baby, sometimes is it not. The average parent cannot diagnose that for themselves. No one should be self-diagnosing anything. I would get dressed, get my baby dressed, and not stop until I was talking to a doctor who was looking at my baby. I'll pray it's nothing but just one of those harmless rashes. Yes, new mothers get scared. Old mothers get scared. Get the baby to the doctor.
  38. Ahh sister, what a tender hearted thing to share---concern for unbelievers---something God gives all his sons and daughters a burden for. Jesus said that to anyone who asks for wisdom, he would give it abundantly. Ask Jesus how you might approach your unbelieving friends, and keep reading the Word to strengthen you and give you courage.
  39. Praying. May God the Holy Spirit kept your spirit and personal countenance high during this assault.
  40. I have prayed for you. God bless you.
  41. The righteous are bold as a lion. Praying that you'll become bold and courageous . Spend more time pursuing after the Lord and you will become bold as a lion. He is the lion of the tribe of Judah who has prevailed.
