  1. I asked for prayer on the forum several days ago after an attack of negative thoughts about my life. I asked members on Worthy to pray for God to guide me on what was best. I think the answer came in the form of an idea: Try limiting online time to one hour per day. Even though I feel like a somewhat responsible person, I've always been easily overwhelmed. To be fair, I think working full time and keeping a place clean could be challenging for anyone. But I always used to wonder how my mom could work full time with two kids and still manage to keep the house clean all the time. The answer seems obvious now. She didn't grow up with the internet. She always finds time to do so many more things in different areas of her life because she doesn't spend as much time online as I did. For years, the internet has been my default activity, ever since high school. I never thought of it as excessive before because I didn't fit the bill for "internet addiction" when I searched it. Also, I maintained good grades and friends. But looking back, I think I got overwhelmed at times without realizing that I spent too much time online. For me, the internet sucks me in and makes hours go by like nothing else. So, two days before Thanksgiving, I started my experiment. At first, I didn't notice a difference because I was overwhelmed by Christmas shopping. But in the last few days, I've seen some major changes. For one, it feels like an endless amount of extra time. Knowing I can't spend hours online, I actually only spent about ten minutes checking things the last few days. Also, instead of being totally absorbed in different sites, I end up doing different positive things throughout the day. I've had off work the last few days. Usually, I'd spend most of the time online and procrastinate on chores. Miracle of miracles, I did chores I'd been meaning to do for two months. Instead of listening to a sermon online, I read the book of Hebrews in silence, having a sweet prayer time afterward. I've had an easier time getting myself to cook our groceries. My husband helped me download a favorite book in an audio version so I can listen to it. It's nice to listen to an actual novel again. I have an easier time sleeping. I'd like to exercise in the morning, hopefully that will improve too. I'm keeping a journal of all the changes so far. It's been a long time since I actually wrote in a journal with ink and paper. I'm liking the results of this experiment and don't really feel a need to go back to spending hours online at a time so far.
  2. Hey guys, I need prayer. I won't go into deep details but I've been feeling anxiety and extreme paranoia. I'm not sure if its the new meds I've been taking ( wont say what im taking them for) or if its just me. Its just everything (especially random LITTLE things) are just making me super paranoid. Please pray that I find out whats causing this, if its me or these new meds im taking and please pray for protection. Gbu all
  3. Why spend time each day alone with God in prayer, in worship and in His word? Matt 6:6 But you, when you pray, go into your closet, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you. Ps 31:20 You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence... Isa 26:9 ...Yes, by my spirit (my heart) within me I will seek You early... When I get alone with God, quiet my thoughts, insure with my heart I’m in God’s presence, and can hear His voice, and can receive His words and His understanding of them; then: -I am always at peace and made genuinely happy, because I’m currently in Christ. -I receive such light from Him to see my life clearly, and power to do what is right. -My heart gets filled up again with His love for me, and for others, and mine for Him. -It is so much easier to say sorry or to forgive others, worry and pride evaporate. -My faith in God and His goodness is re-energized; I know He’s taking care of me. -I become increasingly interested in others and want them to really know Him. -I’m not preoccupied with my own will; I delight to do the will of my heavenly Father. When I don’t get alone with God, due to laziness, muddled thinking, disobedience, work, people, distractions, other commitments, or unresolved sin – God gets crowded out; then: -I seem less able to overcome the daily opportunities to give in to things like resentment, irritation, un-forgiveness, worry and pride. -I have a growing inner sense of guilt and condemnation. My conscience, the voice of my spirit, if it’s tender, condemns me, causing me to feel guilty. -Because I secretly don’t feel good about myself I find I tend to lash out in anger at others more quickly, and blame them for my mounting problems. -With a dark cloud over my soul I can’t help seeing circumstances and people increasingly in a more negative light. I’m more prone to feel sorry for myself. -I have a sense of being driven (not knowing by what) to indulge my favorite appetites to try and make me feel better – but it really doesn’t work I just get more deeply entrapped in bad habits, with a deeper sense of shame. I lack God’s power. Of course I have all kinds of mental explanations for these things – but with reduced or no spiritual light I simply can’t see that the world, my flesh and the devil are having increased influence over me and I’m less able to defend myself against them. And my desire for God and my confidence in Him diminishes. I’ll even think He’s to blame. Isaiah 5:13 Therefore My people are gone into captivity because they have no (new revealed) knowledge (of Me)...they are famished and parched with thirst. Prov. 29:18 Where there is no (new daily) revelation of God (to our spirits from His word by His Spirit) the people cast off restraint (cannot control their own desires). How to start your day with God Jer 29:13 You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. Ps 63:1 O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You... Isa 26:9 ...Yes, by my spirit within me I will seek You early... 1. Obedience (a) Are you right with God, walking in total forgiveness and without care? (b) Did you go to bed last night when God wanted you to? (c) Did you get up this morning when God wanted you to? (d) Won’t you start your day obeying God and therefore in righteousness? Rom 6:16 ...Either of sin, which results in death (to God), or of obedience, which results in righteousness with God. 2. Priorities Is God your first priority today and will you give Him the pre-eminence over everything and everyone else starting with your early morning time? Col 1:13-18 He has delivered me from the power of darkness and conveyed me into the kingdom of the Son of His love...All things (me included) were created by Him and for Him...that in all things He may have the preeminence. 3. Prayer Matt 6:6 When you pray, go away by yourself, all alone, shut your door, (physically and spiritually) and pray to your Father who is in the secret Place (your spirit); and your Father who sees in secret will reward you. (a) Do you start your day with prayer to your heavenly Father? (b) Is it silent or spoken out loud and delighting angels and driving demons away? (c) Do you thank God for a good night’s sleep? (d) Do you thank God for awakening you alive, and alive to Him and dead to you? (e) Do you tell Him that you want to follow Him today, that you will deny yourself and take up your cross, meaning you believe your old nature was crucified with Christ, the body of your sin has been done away with, you no longer serve sin? (f) Do you present your body to Him as a living sacrifice and as an instrument of His righteousness, because it belongs to Him and is available for His use? (g) Do you ask Him to fill you, to lead you, to water you, to teach you, to conform you, to keep you and to use you, moment by moment, with and by His Spirit, not into temptation but to deliver you from the wicked one? Do you believe He will? (h) Do you ask Him to give you the daily bread of His living word and to renew your inner man with the fresh revealed knowledge of Himself? And expect it? (i) Do you ask Him to cause you to hear His lovingkindness (words) because you trust Him, to cause you to know the way in which you should walk, because you lift up your soul (will) to Him and to cause you to walk in His statutes and to keep His judgments and do them – exactly according to Psa 143:8 and Ezek 36:27? (j) Do you affirm that it is His kingdom in which, and His power by which, you live, it is to His glory for all He is making you and doing through you – in Jesus name? 4. Worship John 4:24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit (from the heart, not the head) and truth (for real, not mechanically). (a) Do you sincerely, ignoring feelings, take time to tell God how much you love Him for who He is and how grateful you are for all He has done and is doing for you? (b) Do you tell Him you worship and adore Him, that you bow your knee before Him and are ready to burst into songs of praise about Him, as you lift up your holy hands in awe of Him, because He alone is worthy to receive honor and glory. For He is your God , your savior, your redeemer, your sanctifier, your life, your king and your Lord? (c) Do you bless Him, and ask that He be glorified through you and His Church today? 5. Feeding Isa 50:4 Morning by morning...He awakens my (spiritual) ear to hear... Prov 6:22 ...When you awake, they (My words) will speak with you. Col 3:10 ...The new man (spirit) is renewed in knowledge (God’s word, transforming him) into the image of Him (Jesus Christ) who created him.. (a) Having asked Him, believingly, for your daily bread how do you now receive it? Reading slowly the next Chapter or one given to you, in the Bible, or an inspired devotional for a given day, or a segment of a truth paper you’ve been drawn to? Or receiving a specific chapter and verse from God and then looking it up? (b) What do you then do? i - Do you ponder the verse or portion of it that is speaking to you? ii - Ask for God to reveal what He wants you to understand by it? iii - Make confession of a revealed sin, pray a revealed truth, intercede for a person He identifies, and give Him thanks for a wonderful revelation. Ps 119:18 Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from Your law. iv- Ask Him for counsel on people and issues upcoming for today? v- Write down on a scratch pad or journal what you’ve received? vi - Insure that God has nothing more for you before you move on? vii - Keep thinking on, believing and acting on what God has said? viii - Plan later to review your notes and then file them by subject in folders? 6. Habits Do you start your day with God this way? All the men and women God greatly used started every day this way. They all found that this was the key to being able to live in Christ all through the day and being enabled by God to overcome whatever challenges the day may have brought, staying at peace, full of joy and the Holy Spirit. If you are not doing this or something like this; and your heart is already saying to you that you should, then why not decide this moment to start. Begin tomorrow morning using this as a guideline and refuse to waiver. Get up early enough (going to bed early enough) to do this well before any commitments for the day. This is of God and He will bless and enable you to do it. When we stick with something, what could be more wonderful than this, for about 30 days, a good habit is now formed. Prov 8:17 I love them that love Me; and those that seek Me early shall find Me. KJV Be Blessed!
  4. Ephesians 6:10-18 King James Version (KJV) 10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
  5. Pepper, there are many, MANY Old Testament prophecies of Jesus the Messiah in the Old Testament. Have you not read any of them? … Jeremiah 31:31-34 A New Covenant 31 “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— 32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, [a]though I was a husband to them, says the Lord. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their [b]hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.” Isaiah 9: 6 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.

  7. Yes, Melinda12 - my husband and I rejoice whenever we hear, sing along to, join in with, meditate on the words of the wonderful hymns we have at our disposal to sing anywhere, anytime. We love hymns more than any other song, as they evoke a deep sense of the presence of the Lord and tears roll down as we remember the price He paid for us at Calvary and how we want to remember and talk with Him every day... these songs given to saints by the Lord are definitely special.
  8. Newbie here. I don't even know what to say right now but looking forward to interacting with all of you.
  9. Yes, Jesus is mentioned in the Old Testament … right from the beginning. Hebrews 7:16-17 New King James Version (NKJV) 16 who has come, not according to the law of a fleshly commandment, but according to the power of an endless life. 17 For [a]He testifies: (A)“You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek.” Now look at Genesis… YES,GENESIS 14:17 Genesis 14:17-24 New International Version (NIV) 17 After Abram returned from defeating Kedorlaomer(A) and the kings allied with him, the king of Sodom(B) came out to meet him in the Valley of Shaveh (that is, the King’s Valley).(C) 18 Then Melchizedek(D) king of Salem(E) brought out bread(F) and wine.(G) He was priest of God Most High,(H) 19 and he blessed Abram,(I) saying, “Blessed be Abram by God Most High,(J) Creator of heaven and earth.(K) 20 And praise be to God Most High,(L) who delivered your enemies into your hand.” Then Abram gave him a tenth of everything.(M) … Now then… WHO IS THIS MELCHIZEDEK? My sisters in Christ, it is JESUS CHRIST, SAVIOR OF THE WORLD!
  10. One of my favorite passages. I like to ponder what this means from time to time to remind myself that our war is not with the people, but with the forces behind their ways.
  11. Hi QueenKaylay Lately I have noticed I am under attack in these areas myself, and I am not on any medication except for reflux, although it may be your meds; I don't know. For me, I have found a way to fight it. This is what I do: I begin to praise Jesus, worshipping Him and thanking Him for my salvation, His death and resurrection on the cross and all the blessings I have known because he saved a wretch like me. As you begin to praise Him, He leads you into further worship and prayer and the devil has no opportunity any more. You are loved, sister, and prayed for.
  12. Hi turtletwo This is one of my favourites, too ... I think it was written by Fanny Crosby, who was blind and I think lived until 95 years of age. I also love "It is well with my soul" and "When I survey the wondrous cross".
  13. Lord touch Kaylay. We know anxiety is not from you and we know you are a God of peace. Give her peace and help her to feel your presence. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen
  14. Hi, so sorry to hear of your loss, ...I have lost all of my family, my parents and grandparents died over 40 years ago and also the only woman I have ever given my heart to, so I know and understand your grief of losing someone you love, ...some time ago the Lord showed me that since man is made in the image of God and God is Love, the love we have for someone is eternal, it will never die, since man was created to live forever God didn't give him a folder to classify grief in so that we can put it on a shelf somewhere and leave it behind, for that reason man will try to stop loving the person because they are no longer present to stop the knots in their stomach and the pain and grief in their heart, ...that's not the answer, we will always love them, the only thing that has ended is our current relationship with them, that is what we must let go of, it IS possible to go on with life and still love the ones we have lost, ...if they are IN Christ then Paul tells us we have a Hope that will not disappoint, there will be a reunion in the not so distant future! Beloved, Hebrews 2:15 tells us we have been delivered from the bondage of death, ...the enemy tries to scare us with his roaring, but we don't have to listen to him, ...rest assured, Scripture tells us Ps 116:15, Heb 13:15, when and if you have to walk through the valley of the shadow of death your loving merciful Lord Jesus will supply you with His Grace to bring you joyfully through that door (that's all it is, ...just a door and we know what is waiting for us on the other side). I once heard a Bible Teacher explain it this way to his children, "Children, we are driving on a two lane road, in the distance we see a large truck and trailer speeding straight towards us, the closer it is the more it looks like it will hit us, but when it finally passes us in the other lane the only thing that touched us was it's shadow and we'll continue on on our journey safe and sound." Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. May the Lord bless you and comfort you during this time of sorrow and may His Peace that goes far beyond any human understanding or comprehension give rest and sleep to your grieving soul, ...Abba, Father, I know you have overheard this conversation, please hold your child in your loving arms. Amen
  15. Here it is. I love it!
  16. I have a lovely book called THEN SINGS MY SOUL, written by Robert J. Morgan, given to me by a very special friend. In it are 150 of the world’s greatest hymn stories. Wouldn’t it make a wonderful Christmas gift? Here is a Christmas carol, Omegaman!
  17. what i have done is research the meds i was taking. if i noticed a trend or others similar i would make a decision about the meds. but not knowing your situation i cant sit here and tell you what to do. some things take awhile to adjust and then the symptomes go awway.
  18. @Melinda12 Thank you for this uplifting thread! I love the hymns so it is a blessing to see them as a topic here. I agree with my brethren that they hold wonderful theological truths. For example: In the following hymn "My hope is built on nothing less"- In verse 1 is Salvation: "Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him." (Romans 5:9) In verse 4 The Return of Christ: "It will happen in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed."(1 Corinthians 15:52) 1 My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness; I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus' name. On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; all other ground is sinking sand. 2 When darkness veils His lovely face, I rest on His unchanging grace; in ev'ry high and stormy gale my anchor holds within the veil. On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; 3 His oath, His covenant, His blood support me in the 'whelming flood; when all around my soul gives way He then is all my hope and stay. On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; all other ground is sinking sand. 4 When He shall come with trumpet sound, O may I then in Him be found, dressed in His righteousness alone, faultless to stand before the throne. On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; all other ground is sinking sand.
  19. Sing to the LORD and let all rejoice in Him . Raise up those hands and sing praises to the Lord .
  20. Okay, so give me some ears to hear and eyes to see… It wasn’t until God’s plan of SALVATION that Christ was named YESHUA (Hebrew name for Jesus) which means SAVIOR.
  21. Because according to the flesh , JESUS came . And they had all the prophets and law , which pointed to CHRIST . And according to OUR LORD , the flesh profits nothing and YE must be born again . Thus if even a jew rejects Christ , as JESUS SAID and would say , IF YOU LOVED GOD you would LOVE ME . IF even the jews reject their God , they are not saved . And if one rejects JESUS , well , who do we think THEY REJECTED . For that answer , lets turn to the bible . IF a man rejects you , he rejects me , and if he rejects me he rejects HIM who sent me . EXACTLY . Their is no other name given under heaven whereby one can be saved . And if they deny HIM , HE DENIES THEM . salvation is not of the muslims , not of rome , not of any other relgion . Its of the jews , and yet even if a jew rejects JESUS , HE TOO IS REJECTED . GOOD HEALTHY STRONG REMINDERS to do battle against the all inclusive LIE .
  22. YET IT IS JESUS . please tell me , you don't think a savoir is coming to bring about world peace . The savoir already came nigh two thousand years ago . WHEN HE comes again , it will be for his church and to lay down wrath against this so called savoir. The one coming to establish world peace , he just plays as god . JESUS will end that one and his kings and all who bought the lie .
  23. Lord, Thank you for this day. Thank you for brining my husband home and for the good night we had with ur children. We enjoyed a movie and had quality family time. Lord, I ask that you touch my husband’s heart. Please allow him to see you and choose you. He is so lost and often puts everything else in hi life before his relationship with you. I pray that you touch his heart. Soften it and allow your words to penetrate his heart. Bless our day together today and our weekend. I love you Lord. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen
  24. Romans 16:17-18 I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive.
  25. PS If you look at my original post, I began by expressing my shock and dismay, and then asked a question about if Justin Welby was right. The start of my thread here was to ask more mature Christians than myself if I had misunderstood God and gender. However, even if it had purely been to draw attention to the words of a man who is head of 85 million people, to warn them of his teaching error, that is not wrong. We are required to protect the flock and warn of wolves. His words have been in all the papers, on TV etc in the UK. And he knew that that would happen. Scarcely a private matter. I am still unsure about why you are taking the view that I revealed something private. Or that his getting a public rebuke is somehow bad, given the public nature of his broadcast. We are not talking about something said at a private dinner party, for example.I hope he is shamed and taught his error, and will publicly backtrack. Just because he is Archbishop of Canterbury doesnt put him above censure, in fact, given the huge sway he has over his huge flock, he is even more responsible for correct teaching.
  26. Thanks Mel...good encouragement for us all.
  27. 'Then Jacob rose up, .. and set his sons and his wives upon camels; .... And he carried away all his cattle, ...... and all his goods which he had gotten, ........ the cattle of his getting, .......... which he had gotten in Padanaram, for to go to Isaac his father .. in the land of Canaan.' (Genesis 31:17-18) Praise God!
  28. Rachel and Leah said to him, “Do we still have any portion or inheritance in our father’s house? Are we not reckoned by him as foreigners? For he has sold us, and has also entirely consumed our purchase price. Surely all the wealth which God has taken away from our father belongs to us and our children; now then, do whatever God has said to you.” Genesis 31:-14-16
  29. Hi Pencil24 I thought this response from JustPassingThru was a wonderful prayer to our Lord for you. I stand in agreement with this prayer for you on the loss of this loved person in your life.
  30. If he spoke thus, "The speckled shall be your wages,’ then all the flock brought forth speckled; and if he spoke thus, ‘The striped shall be your wages,’ then all the flock brought forth striped. Thus God has taken away your father’s livestock and given them to me. And it came about at the time when the flock were mating that I lifted up my eyes and saw in a dream, and behold, the male goats which were mating were striped, speckled, and mottled. Then the angel of God said to me in the dream, ‘Jacob,’ and I said, ‘Here I am.’ He said, ‘Lift up now your eyes and see that all the male goats which are mating are striped, speckled, and mottled; for I have seen all that Laban has been doing to you. I am the God of Bethel, where you anointed a pillar, where you made a vow to Me; now arise, leave this land, and return to the land of your birth.’” Genesis 31:8-13

    Hello

    You are welcome here, Inno. My dad was saved in the last year of his life. I pray that your dad's heart be softened that he may receive God's free gift of salvation.
  32. I am praying for your mother's eye and for your Grandma to get saved. Also, for her health.
  33. @Pencil24 Thank you for sharing this with us. I am sorry for the loss of your friend Caleb. I will be praying for you and his family. It is so hard to lose a loved one. Around a holiday...harder still. But you have inspired others by showing this can be done. One of my favorite scriptures is Phil 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." God bless you.
  34. I got saved during this Revival. So although I love the hymns, I also love these scripture songs listed. Maranatha was a group who recorded some beautiful renditions of the Psalms including As the Deer Pants.
  35. So he removed on that day the striped and spotted male goats and all the speckled and spotted female goats, every one with white in it, and all the black ones among the sheep, and gave them into the care of his sons. And he put a distance of three days’ journey between himself and Jacob, and Jacob fed the rest of Laban’s flocks. Genesis 30:35-36
  36. Hi RH, 1Thes 4:17 is definitely the Rapture/Resurrection. No doubt about it. But it doesn't give us the timing. Not pretrib, midtrib, postrib, or prewrath. But there are a few scriptures that DO give us the timing. God does not appoint us to WRATH.....1 Thes 5:9....For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ" “ For the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand”…Rev 6:17 This verse states that on a specific “great day”, the wrath of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit will begin. Let’s pick it up in Rev 6:12-17: 12 I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; 13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind.14 The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the [a]commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; 16 and they *said to the mountains and to the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the [b]presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; 17 for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” Look at what it doesn’t say…..It doesn’t say that their wrath had already commenced. It does say that the GREAT DAY OF THEIR WRATH HAS COME Also, they were hiding in the caves and amongst the rocks and asking them to “Fall on us and Hide us” from the Face of Him who sits on the throne. No one asks to be hidden under rocks from something that started years earlier. This is a nonsense statement that no one would make. People only ask to be hidden from what they perceive to be a present danger and at its inception. The Wrath of God begins AFTER Jesus opens the sixth seal. This is indisputable based on Scripture! 2) EYE WITNESSES:…… 1) The inhabitants of the earth in Rev 6:17 testify as to the timing of the initiation of the Great and Terrible Day of the Lord’s Wrath, as shown above. 2) The martyrs under the altar……Rev 6:10 “ They cried out with a loud voice saying “ How long O Lord holy and true, will you refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth” This right here precludes all five of the first seals from being God’s Wrath. 3) Joel 2:31…” The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood BEFORE the great and awesome day of the Lord comes” Matt 24:29…..” But immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 4) Matt 24:31….. “ And He will send forth His angels with a great trumpet and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other”
  37. Thanks, well there's a lot tbh, prayer for my dad's health, he's in a desperate situation right now and I'm extremely worried about him. At the same time I hadn't realized how far I had gotten away from living in faith so I'm in a kind of crisis over that. It happened in baby steps I guess, but now I don't know what I was thinking. Things were posed to me that caused questions and doubts, and they began to eat at me, to the point that I threw up my hands and stopped thinking about them instead of continuing to diligently seek answers. I became overwhelmed by personal problems during that time and ended up withdrawn and isolated. I'm kicking myself for it all now, not only for my own circumstances but because I could have been a better witness and a better example of living a godly Christian life for my dad. It may be too late to do anything about that now and that's tearing me up. It's a lot all at once. Thanks for asking.
