    PRETERISM THE NEW FRONTIER

    Mat 24:3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?" Three questions are asked here with three different answers: When will this happen? (the destruction of the the Temple) What will be the sign of Your Coming? Whit will be the sign of the end of the age? We know when the Temple was destroyed. But neither the signs of His coming nor of the end of the age have been fulfilled in their entirety.

    Praise Good News About Daughter

    Praise God for the good news my daughter had from the specialist today. It seems the MRA/MRI showed something like loops from one angle that looked like a problem but from the other angles looks ok. He is consulting with his colleagues to verify but even if there is a problem he would not operate as it would be too small and they would only keep their eye on it every year. Praise God also that God gave me peace during this time. My daughter is over joyed at the good report today!

    "backfired" spiritual warfare

    Welcome to Worthy! I believe any time you are spiritual warfare, you have to be wary of how the enemy works. But I always tell people ... in Spiritual Warfare ... do not think you are fighting the battle ... leave the battle to the Lord. Simply lift the battle to the Lord and claim His victory. May the Lord richly bless you!
  5. I have seen you change tremendously, Mabel. Praise God for all His help in your life.

    Praise Good News About Daughter

    The Lord is faithful to His promises. "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee." Isaiah 26:3 I am so happy for her, Frances.
  7. Whether what you said is accepted is really moot. I'm grateful to the Lord that someone gave you that Bible that you have been transformed by the LORD. I do not agree with you that medications for mental illnesses are witchcraft. I, myself, have been on Prozac and it helped me tremendously. Also, when Paul speaks to Timothy of a sound mind, he isn't talking about sanity. He is talking about self-discipline and control. It's a Greek word, σωφρονισμός (sō-fro-nē-smo's) and it means an admonishing to a sound mind in terms of moderation and self-control. Paul wants Timothy to be bold in his preaching - not having a spirit of fear. He also inserts being self-disciplined. "Soundness" of mind comes from a self-controlled nature in being a true Christian. It isn't speaking of insanity or mental instability. Paul wouldn't be speaking to Timothy about that. I see a lot of people who don't believe in meds for people with mental illnesses who use that passage. I wish they would understand the meaning of the word. God has worked in you without meds. I pray he keeps a good work in you. He has worked in me and many others with meds.

    You put those hands up skillet and praise the LORD . And let us continuously exhort one another and feast on the wonderous pages of the bible . We love our sister selah song . Turtle two you are dearly loved too sister . Get your rest and prayers are being prayed . As the days go on , deceptions will only abound and get worse . OH but the LORD has His sheep and may we follow Him and learn of Him . The clock just struck.........ITS LORD PRAISING TIME . but that clock strikes continuously . for no matter what comes against us , the praises of the Lord shall be on the lips of the lambs . Men can take our lives , put us in prison , take all our wealth , BUT AINT NO MAN can take the JOY OF OUR LORD from those who are HIS .
  10. Sister, Let me just tell you: Jesus changes everything. Even in during my most severe episodes in the past, His presence was an enormous comfort. Even though I had to avoid books on angels and demons for a while, I credit my recovery to the Lord. Medication is your business, not anyone else's. Do what's best for you to get better and let everyone one else adjust or leave you alone. It is not a lack of faith to be on medication. I was just as much a believer on the meds as I am now, since I've reduced them. Follow the Lord, but in everything else, do what's best for you and everyone else' opinion doesn't matter. Will they pay for your expenses if you need extra care? If no, then their opinion doesn't matter no matter how spiritual they sound. Don't let them tell you you can't do your dream either. You may have to monitor your sleep and stress and not take on too many commitments. But your future is in God's hands. You don't know yet what He will do in your life. They told me I would never leave the facility. Well guess what? I work full-time, have a husband and am wondering the best time for kids. You can do anything. It may take some time and you may need a break from school or work. You may need to take 3 classes at a time rather than 5 or 6. But you can do anything. Considering you were coherent enough to write this post, you are most likely very brilliant with a high chance if functioning given the right self-care and treatment. No matter how bad it gets, remember. God is still there. He doesn't depend our mental health to be God. He is the Lord. He has the final say over your health. (I was diagnosed bipolsr Schizoaffective. That was five years ago. I'm not looking back)

    Thanks for praying! I posted this in Praise area but wanted you all to hear the good news. Praise God!!! Praise God for the good news my daughter had from the specialist today.

    I hope this topic is allowed. Essentially I wanted to reach out and say that @frienduff thaylorde I think you are doing a good job not taking yourself too seriously on here, and also, warning people that some of us feel the doctrines on Catholicism, are not safe. I never called the Catholic teachings unintelligent, the fact is they are well woven, but I almost became a Catholic one time for certain reasons. I fell to intelligent doctrines over what the Lord is speaking in my life. I wanted to reach out because my shyness doesn't so much allow me to randomly PM members, and let you know you don't fall on deaf ears here. Sometimes I feel like you, @SelahSong and a few (or many?) others really keep the forum going and positively. If there are Catholic members reading I hope they understand that I used the term "I". "I" don't feel that God is leading me or certain other members toward Catholicism. Catholics can still post or defend in this thread if they want to, I'm not going to sit here and be mean, just don't expect to change my mind on this matter. I was simply happy to see someone who knows his stance and is passionate about it and wanted to tell him. I would love to have even half his passion.

    What and Who is The Anti-Christ?

    I removed comments concerning criticizing someone who is not able to defend themselves. I don't mind a videos whereby they condemn themselves as their agendas are exposed by their own words. Let's give evidence before simple criticism. God bless.
  14. 19 But I am sure that the king of Egypt will not let you go, no, not even by a mighty hand. 20 So I will stretch out My hand and strike Egypt with all My wonders which I will do in its midst; and after that he will let you go. 21 And I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians; and it shall be, when you go, that you shall not go empty-handed. 22 But every woman shall ask of her neighbor, namely, of her who dwells near her house, articles of silver, articles of gold, and clothing; and you shall put them on your sons and on your daughters. So you shall plunder the Egyptians." (Exodus 3:19-22)

    The Sacrifice Lamb Joshua Aaron

    @In Him Happy to hear that! I think it's so powerful how the Old and New Testaments come together through the sacrifice of the lamb themes...how those done in the Old foreshadowed & led up to the perfect Lamb of God, the Messiah and Savior in the NT.

    Daughter Needs Prayer- updated

    may God continue to watch over your daughter over this.
  18. I'm afraid this isn't going to be very well accepted, but please consider this in prayer and the Word. Just to let you know we are on the same page, I've been crazy, not the political correct "mentally ill, but totally crazy, couldn't walk and chew gum at the same time, when out in public I imagined I saw people trying to kill me, talking to myself 24/7, couldn't sleep, didn't bathe, didn't eat, my mind spinning at 100 trillion miles per second, ...diagnosed schizophrenic, paranoid, depressive. County Mental Health was going to lock me up, they considered me to be a danger to myself and others, but God...., now I know it was God intervening in my life before I was even born again, ...for some strange reason they made me an out patient on the condition I took their drugs, the very first time I took their drugs I started to get high, the time-space dimension shifted, the door was open and I was looking through into another dimension, the dimension where the demons live, ...just like when I took LSD, that was the first and the last time I took them! A friend gave me his Bible with the Words of Jesus in red, I found when reading His Words a peace settled over me, my mind stopped spinning and I could sleep, it took 18 months to become sane, sane enough for Mental Health to release me, ...Father also brought a born again brother into my life, who became my best friend, he always had Scriptures for me when I was down, or slipping back, he was always there for me, always encouraging me to read the Word, to memorize verses, to encourage me and most important, to accept me just as I was, ...totally crazy! That was 37 years ago, may I humbly and in the Love of Christ tell you what the Holy Spirit has taught me? Any and all drugs that causes us to be in an altered state of consciousness, is forbidden for born again children of God, in the New Testament the word for witchcraft is pharmakeia and it means to take drugs, not aspirin or anti-biotics or medicines like that, but rather drugs that mess with our minds, mind altering drugs that can open doors into other dimensions that God didn't give to man to experience. Also, Paul tells us we have been given a sound mind: For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Tim 1:7 and that coupled with: For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, Rom 8:29 And (we) have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created him: Col 3:10 Jesus was never mentally ill, not in Eternity past, not for the 32 years He walked this Earth and not now as a Man sitting at the right hand of the Father, ...Father knew us from before the foundation of this Earth, He knew exactly what would be happening in your life today, ...you have been predestined from before the world was to be conformed into the image of Jesus, ...yes, we all are different, no one is alike, we all have our pah to walk with our Lord, but..., we all have be predestined, while we are here, to be conformed into the image of out Lord, Jesus Christ! I've given to you the verses my best friend gave me when I needed them, times when I was slipping back, times when I felt like I was coming on or having a flashback, times when I felt like it was just too hard to go on, it works, may I suggest you memorize these verses and speak them out loud if you are alone or in you heart if not, when you feel like you're slipping back, or it's too hard or anxious, ...these are more than just words in a book, they are reality, ...reality to those that are born again children of God, ...I tend to remind Father in my prayers of what He has promised me, like, "Father You said I have a sound mind," or Father, "You're conforming me into the image of Your Son Jesus Christ." Dear one, we are in a spiritual war and the battle is being fought in our minds, the enemy of our souls will use our flesh against us, actually we are are own worst enemy, those feeling you feel, that is just your flesh, the old carnal nature talking, energized by the devil, we resist the devil with Scripture and the enemy will flee, just like he did when Jesus quoted Scripture to him, ...remember, the just live by faith, in faith use the promises Father has written in His Word. One last thing, find a church that teaches the Word of God and not here particular doctrine, and fellowship there, ask for help, there will be someone there Father has already prepared to befriend you, ...you are not alone, you are an important member of the Body of Christ and there is a local body that needs your gift and talents. Lord bless

    Thoughts on 2018

    Hi Annette, It was a very interesting year, travelling around Australia and seeing God`s wonders. But most of all it was the joy of meeting some people here on the forum and getting to know them more in the Lord. They were/are such a blessing to me amid a very trying time. The Lord had His Body around at a very special time. Marilyn.

    Well this might be personal but 2018 was the year I met George and Wingnut on the forums and they took it on themselves to help me with my faith. Here it is 2019 and I am growing and they have not given up on me.

  22. The Burning Bush Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb. And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. And Moses said, "I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt." Exodus 3:1-2
  23. God Hears Israel's Groaning And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage. And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. And God looked upon the children of Israel and God had respect unto them. Exodus 2:23-25
