  1. This morning I started getting stabbing pains in my left upper rib (the back of it.) They came out of the blue. Really strange. I took 3 ibuprofen about an hour ago. But I continue to get these. Please pray the Lord will touch and heal me. Thanks.
  2. Hi!! Can u please pray that my moms health is well. Her thigh has an abnormal lump thing on it. It’s scarying my sister and I. We also only have one car right now, so arranging doctor appointments take time out of work for my parents which strains them. Thanks you so much!! Stay Blessed💕✨
  3. Lord, Please bless Turtletwo and her family with spiritual blessings, salvation and repentance where needed, good health and for her children's work go smoothly. Good health for her mother also may she get excellent care. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen
  4. Perhaps, you should try the individual Fellowship forums for the different age groups. I'm sorta of the opposite ... I still see the best is ahead of us. While people often look at the glass half empty -- I'm looking at the glass half-full. While some focus on the tares ... I chose not to ignore the tares, but also realize the wheat is growing with the tares! I believe you're seeing a real change of pace on the forums over the past month. As we've basically realized there are some people that SHOULDN'T post freely in a forum environment because of this very issue. Without love, we're just a clanging cymbal ... so we're seeing the change in moderation style start to affect all the forums. Yes, it did happen in the past, and we've isolated the issue and I believe you'll see more conversations in love with various viewpoints expressed. A lot of this took place in the political forums, and this issue was dealt with. I don't know about that ... I personally have seen this debate for 20 years. This is not a new debate and wasn't settled 300 years ago ... and continues to be the same debate rehashed over and over again. I can see both side of the debate ... and I've posted my opinion on the matter, and I certainly have had people in the ministry team that we're on opposite sides of this same issue over the years. I just want a place for believers to be able to work through doctrines in love. When you can simply have a conversation in love, I believe the Holy Spirit in the end will draw all men to the truth. The problem is when the Spirit is quenched ... I didn't arrive to my views on my own, but rather through experience, through the Word, and being led of the Spirit -- and I realize I'm not a completed work! So as long as we have the fundamental understandings that the Bible is the final authority on matters ... we can simply discuss the Word in love and how that may apply to every day living! I hope I answered all your questions. God bless, George
  5. I think we all have needs within each of the areas you have mentioned and they create the dynamics of those relationships Paul said Php_4:11 I am not saying this because I am in any need, for I have learned to be content in whatever situation I am in. 1Ti_6:8 With food to eat and clothes to wear; content we are in everything. Heb_13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money, and be content with what you have, for God has said, "I will never leave you or abandon you." I think these fit hand in glove with your outline. A piece of wisdom I heard is; we have 3 areas in our life we need to keep balanced....get one out of wack and it effects the others 1. our spiritual life 2. our personal life 3. our professional life I think the work of living in the Kingdom includes being aware of our perceived needs and those of others then balancing those out with what is really needed.
  6. I tried to avoid ironing but my wife won't let me wear spandex...
  7. Hi danab, Actually those brought up from the dead are a mix of unbelievers and those who never had the opportunity to know Jesus. Thus God is judging them on their works as God`s word says. If their works show that they lived according to a God-given conscience, doing what is right and not wrong, then their names will be in the book of life. The book of life is opened to show who is in there. Those who rejected the Lord will not be in the book of life. The Body of Christ is NOT judged, as the Lord took our judgment. if it was just us in the book of life the book would be closed at the great white throne. God has great mercy for those who never heard of His Son but lived right lives. Marilyn.
  8. Thank you Lord, for teaching me the important of forgiveness, being direct, and asking for what you need. Thanks also, SkilletFan for helping me realize a pattern in myself: getting hurt/offended and running away or avoiding the issue. When I first got married, I transferred from four-year college to a two-year. But at the four-year, I had several close girl friends. They had conflicted emotions about me getting married and going away. Each was different. I tried to keep up with them, but largely felt they abandoned me. Just like my group from high school. For a while I decided basically no one was worthy of opening up to or being close with. I was hurt and carrying all this rejection and bitterness. I asked the Lord to help but it never went away. I'm starting to realize though that just because you need boundaries, doesn't mean you can just avoid every conflict or addressing every thing that hurts you. You can never keep friends that way. No matter how hard I tried, i couldn't just bury all those hurt feelings. It affected me. It affects me now. I'm starting to address the people who have really hurt me, one by one. If they want to be my friend, cool. If not, cool. If just distant friends. Fine, too. But i want to say respectfully exactly what they did that hurt me, leave their response up to them and move on. Please pray that I can learn when to address someone who hurts me, whether it be my husband, an old friend, or a current friend. It's good to overlook some faults, but I'm starting to see that I would just get hurt or offended by a person and never speak to them again! But the hurt always stayed. If I am to have the fellowship with other believers and friends I want, I need to stop doing this. So pray for me to forgive and address people if necessary. Thanks.
  9. Hi Naominash, WOw, no wonder you are tired, strung out and frazzled & having a break. What a great many burdens you are carrying and judging yourself on each of those. They are all deep holes that can never be filled except by God. I believe you need to firstly work on your relationship with the Lord. Now instead of going to all those meetings and putting on the face, spend time alone with the Lord and really hear Him. His burden is light, yours is so heavy. When you have peace in your heart that you can only be a helper and not be the `saviour` for all those people then you will relax and enjoy the relationships and watch what GOD is doing not what YOU are doing. Who is Lord, you or Jesus? (I`m saying that as one who cares for you to see how you have placed yourself in the centre of everything, and that everyone needs you so much.) Repent to the Lord and let Him show you what HE is doing in people`s lives. Be real, ask for help, be thankful, & appreciate that the Lord is in control and NOT you, (or any of us). all the best, Marilyn.

    If one never heard the good news they will be judged by there works. If they have works of faith. In there hearts they know there is a God so conduct them self from that. God will be mercyful.
  11. Ever heard the phrase Martha , Martha ye are trouble about many things . IF WE PUT JESUS FIRST , everthing else WOULD be a JOY TO DO . Not many folks are telling you this . Here is the priority . JESUS , TRUTH , FAR Above everything , above even mother , son , daughter , husband wife . Then all others before us . JUST LEARN and focus ON CHRIST . Here is how I get all joy , BY FOLLOWING and OBEYING , KEEPING HIS SAYINGS on my heart , by the grace which HIS own Spirit supplies . For if we love Christ , not a single saying of HIS is burdensome . ITS PURE JOY and HAPPY is the ONE who does them .
  12. It is not how much good we do but the person we are becoming. Doing good should be a result of knowing and becoming like Christ. We tend to complicate and fret about How to be a good Christian. We end up doing this and that to please God. What pleases God? it is to become as Christ in heart mind and spirit. This is and should be what we seek to be. We some this up in the two greatest commandments, " Love the Lord thy God with all you heart mind and soul, and 2nd love thy neighbor as thyself. We respond to needs of others because it is what we should do as we by the Holy Spirit become more as Christ . I'm not counting the times I have helped others. If I'm there and available to love my neighbor I do what I am able. Christ works change of mind and attitude to be as He is having no pre conceived ideas like wanting to please Christ. We are being transformed into his likeness. We want to do things that would please the Lord. but it should to be as Christ would be. Don't make mental notes on trying to be good. Just be who you should be when it comes in your path. Loving, kindness and gentile. My 2 cents God Bless
  13. The Assembly of God teaches that it is proof. I don't agree with that. On Worthy we say that the fruit of the Spirit is evidence: love joy peace long-suffering, kindness goodness meekness faithfulness and self control. Also, the Holy Spirit will bear witness in your heart that you are God's child. You will be able to understand the Scriptures more clearly and see how they apply to your life.. These are all evidence of the Holy Spirit being in your life.
  14. Exodus 6:14-20 New King James Version (NKJV) The Family of Moses and Aaron 14 These are the heads of their fathers’ houses: The sons of Reuben, the firstborn of Israel, were Hanoch, Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi. These are the families of Reuben. 15 And the sons of Simeon were Jemuel, Jamin, Ohad, Jachin, Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanite woman. These are the families of Simeon. 16 These are the names of the sons of Levi according to their generations: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. And the years of the life of Levi were one hundred and thirty-seven. 17 The sons of Gershon were Libni and Shimi according to their families. 18 And the sons of Kohath were Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel. And the years of the life of Kohath were one hundred and thirty-three. 19 The sons of Merari were Mahli and Mushi. These are the families of Levi according to their generations. 20 Now Amram took for himself Jochebed, his father’s sister, as wife; and she bore him Aaron and Moses. And the years of the life of Amram were one hundred and thirty-seven.
  15. 'And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel: .. but they hearkened not unto Moses .... for anguish of spirit, ...... and for cruel bondage. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, .. "Go in, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, .... that he let the children of Israel go out of his land." And Moses spake before the LORD, saying, .. "Behold, the children of Israel have not hearkened unto me; .... how then shall Pharaoh hear me, who am of uncircumcised lips?" And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, .. and gave them a charge unto the children of Israel, .... and unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, ...... to bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.' (Exodus 6:9-13) Praise God!
  16. I’m sorry to hear abour your mom’s health problem, Kenzie. I know how concerning it must be for you and your sister. Please know that I’m standing with you in prayer for her healing. It is a great comfort to know that we serve a compassionate, loving God who knows and cares about every detail of our lives. May He prove Himself her healer and sustainer in many tangible ways. Grace amd peace to you.
  17. Naomi, I have always been drawn to your transparency and being real. It is a blessing each time you post and this time a reminder to all of us to keep short lists. Thank you for being a part of Worthy. Praying as well.
  18. The sooner you can get her to a doctor the better. Please don't put it off! Praying also for God's healing touch and that He would take away your fear.
  19. @Kenzie Sure. I will be glad to pray for her, Kenzie. It looks like you just joined so Welcome To Worthy!
  20. "Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments: And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God: and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. And I will bring you in unto the land concerning the which I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it you for an heritage: I am the LORD." Exodus 6:6-8
  21. God Promises Deliverance Then the LORD said unto Moses, "Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land." And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, "I am the LORD: And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them. And I have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers. And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my covenant." Exodus 6:1-5
  22. MIRACLES FOLLOW THE PLOW, A.W. TOZER Break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till he comes and rain righteousness upon you. –Hosea 10:12 Here are two kinds of ground: fallow ground and ground that has been broken up by the plow. The fallow field is smug, contented, protected from the shock of the plow and the agitation of the harrow. Such a field, as it lies year after year, becomes a familiar landmark to the crow and the blue jay. Had it intelligence, it might take a lot of satisfaction in its reputation; it has stability; nature has adopted it; it can be counted upon to remain always the same while the fields around it change from brown to green and back to brown again. Safe and undisturbed, it sprawls lazily in the sunshine, the picture of sleepy contentment. But it is paying a terrible price for it tranquility: Never does it see the miracle of growth; never does it feel the motions of mounting life nor see the wonders of bursting seed nor the beauty of ripening grain. Fruit it can never know because it is afraid of the plow and the harrow. In direct opposite to this, the cultivated field has yielded itself to the adventure of living. The protecting fence has opened to admit the plow, and the plow has come as plows always come, practical, cruel, business-like and in a hurry. Peace has been shattered by the shouting farmer and the rattled of machinery. The field has felt the travail of change; it has been upset, turned over, bruised and broken, but its rewards come hard upon its labors. The seed shoots up into the daylight its miracle of life, curious, exploring the new world above it. All over the field the hand of God is at work in the age-old and ever renewed service of creation. New things are born, to grow, mature, and consummate the grand prophecy latent in the seed when it entered the ground. Nature’s wonders follow the plow. There are two kinds of lives also: the fallow and the plowed. For examples of the fallow life we need not go far. They are all too plentiful among us. The man of fallow life in contented with himself and the fruit he once bore. He does not want to be disturbed. He smiles in tolerant superiority at revivals, fasting, self-searchings, and all the travail of fruit-bearing and the anguish of advance. The spirit of adventure is dead within him. He is steady, “faithful”, always in his accustomed place (like the old field), conservative, and something of a landmark in the little church. But he is fruitless. The curse of such a life is that it is fixed, both in size and in content. To be has taken the place of to become. The worst that can be said of such a man is that he is what he will be. He has fenced himself in, and by the same act, he has fenced out God and the miracle. The plowed life is the life that has, in the act of repentance, thrown down the protecting fences and sent the plow of confession into the soul. The urge of the Spirit, the pressure of circumstances and the distress of fruitless living have combined thoroughly to humble the heart. Such a life has put away defense, and has forsaken the safety of death for the peril of life. Discontent, yearning, contrition, courageous obedience to the will of God: these have bruised and broken the soil till it is ready again for the seed. And as always fruit follow the plow. Life and growth begin as God “rains down righteousness.” Such a one can testify, “And the hand of the Lord was upon me there.” Corresponding to these two kinds of life, religious history shows two phases, the dynamic and the static. The dynamic periods were those heroic times when God’s people stirred themselves to do the Lord’s bidding and went out fearlessly to carry His witness to the world. They exchanged the safety of inaction for the hazards of God-inspired progress. Invariably the power of God followed such action. The miracle of God went when and where His people went; it stayed when His people stopped. The static periods were those times when the people of God tired of the struggle and sought a life of peace and security. Then they busied themselves trying to conserve the gains made in those more daring times when the power of God moved among them. Bible history is replete with examples. Abraham “went out” on his great adventure of faith, and God went with him. Revelations, theophanies, the gift of Palestine, covenants and promises of rich blessings to come were the result. Then Israel went down into Egypt, and the wonders ceased for four hundred years. At the end of that time Moses heard the call of God and stepped forth to challenge the oppressor. A whirlwind of power accompanied that challenge, and Israel soon began to march. As long as she dared to march, God sent out His miracles to clear the way for her. Whenever she lay down like a fallow field, He turned off His blessing and waited for her to rise again and command His power. This is a brief but fair outline of the history of Israel and of the Church as well. As long as they “went forth and preached everywhere,” the Lord worked “with them…confirming the word with signs following.” But when they retreated to monasteries or play at building pretty cathedrals, the help of God was withdrawn till a Luther or Wesley arose to challenge hell again. Then invariably God poured out His power as before. In every denomination, missionary society, local church or individual Christian this law operates. God works as long as His people live daringly: He ceases when they no longer need His aid. As soon as we seek protection outside of God, we find it to our own undoing. Let us build a safety-wall of endowments, by-laws, prestige, multiplied agencies for the delegation of our duties, and creeping paralysis sets in at once, a paralysis which can only end in death. The power of God comes only where it is called out by the plow. It is released into the Church only when she is doing something that demands it. By the word “doing” I do not mean mere activity. The Church has plenty of “hustle” as it is, but in all her activities she is very careful to leave her fallow ground mostly untouched. She is careful to confine her hustling within the fear-marked boundaries of complete safety. That is why she is fruitless; she is safe, but fallow. Look around today and see where the miracles of power are taking place. Never in the seminary where each thought is prepared for the student, to be received painlessly and at second hand; never in the religious institution where tradition and habit have long ago made faith unnecessary; never in the old church where memorial tablets plastered over the furniture bear silent testimony to a glory that once was. Invariably where daring faith is struggling to advance against hopeless odds, there is God sending “help from the sanctuary.” In the missionary society with which I have for many years been associated, I have noticed that the power of God has always hovered over our frontiers. Miracles have accompanied our advances and have ceased when and where we allowed ourselves to become satisfied and ceased to advance. The creed of power cannot save a movement from barrenness. There must be also the work of power. But I am more concerned with the effect of this truth upon the local church and the individual. Look at that church where plentiful fruit was once the regular and expected thing, but now there is little or no fruit, and the power of God seems to be in abeyance. What is the trouble? God has not changed, nor has His purpose for that church changed in the slightest measure. No, the church itself has changed. A little self-examination will reveal that it and its members have become fallow. It has lived through its early travails and has now come to accept an easier way of life. It is content to carry on its painless program with enough money to pay its bills and a membership large enough to assure its future. Its members now look to it for security rather than for guidance in the battle between good and evil. It has become a school instead of a barracks. Its members are students, not soldiers. They study the experiences of others instead of seeking new experiences of their own. The only way to power for such a church is to come out of hiding and once more take the danger-encircled path of obedience. Its security is its deadliest foe. The church that dears the plow writes its own epitaph: the church that uses the plow walks in the way of revival. http://r3alliance.com/2015/05/sample-blog-1/
  23. Father, I pray for Bk1110 father Lord. For healing from the cancer, that the treatment will also be effective with minimal side effects. I pray for strength and good health for the whole family especially also Bk1110's mom. Blessing on her job and may she be able to retire as planned in June. I pray her work would go smoothly too. Blessings on Bk110 also. In Jesus name, Amen.
  24. Scripture says; Luke 16:10 (NASB) "He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much. “faithful in a very little thing”. Scripture calls us to be faithful in a very little thing, as a steppingstone to the greater thing. If we fail to be faithful in the small things is it a wonder we’re not entrusted with that which would be considered a larger thing? As believers who would be pleasing to our Creator in both large and small things, let us, as He has said be faithful in the small things. So as scripture says; James 4:10 (NASB) Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you. It is the small things that we must be found faithful in first. But what does in mean to be found faithful in the small things? Prayer? Bible reading? Sharing Christ? All these things are good and proper. But what is still lacking? You can have all these things and still not be found faithful in the small things. For if you don’t have the one ingredient to add to all the above, your building castles in the air with your own imagination and self effort. What is that one thing? ...... Righteousness. So what is one to do? When the Spirit of Christ in your heart, brings something to your attention, don’t think it’s to small a thing to worry about. For at that moment of time, that is the obedience God is calling you to. For at that moment of time, that is the standard to which you have obtained. Whether it be a large or small thing. For to be inwardly directed by the Peace of Christ in your heart is what we have been called to. Paying attention to the Peace of Christ in our hearts, and it’s nudgings, in the small things, is that that causes us to grow into the larger things. We have all been called to the larger things, but as new born babes we have to be found faithful in the small things first. For God’s heart is set on our growth and obedience in the small things, is that that comes first. So let us agree with Him, that that too, is what our hearts are set upon. For God would have His children, all His children, walk in newness of life, which is walking in righteousness before Him in the here and now. Blessings, as wise builders, we strive to build, and make this a living reality in our life’s. Much love in Christ, Not me
  25. I will make you fishers of men.
  26. Yeshua was about two. BC one was the conjunction of Virgo in the Leo constellation. A most unusual thing. September 11 was most likely his birth along withe Moses on Tishri one. The day that Kings are crowned. The wise men would have seen this clearly in the heavens.
  27. `Then Peter opened his mouth and said: "In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. But in every nations whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him.` (Acts. 10: 14 & 15)
  28. Sorry, I should have asked which answer is right #3! Amen!
  29. its good that you are asking questions!!!! i kinda got where you were coming from as the world is so different to God's ways. that has taken me/taking me the longest time. as i was very into the world i guess. its like everything is in reverse. for exapmple what we think is important oh lets say material things in God's way that is not so. and yeah its ok to have these things its just where they sit in your heart.
  30. I got the impression she was trying to exemplify a way to try and find a positive in diversity that will lead to contentment
  31. Weeeee! I'm still young. For at less another month! Now with that out of the way I will go back and read the rest of your post.
  32. Yes. Praise the Lord! Thanks for asking and also for praying. GBU.
  33. Let God's Word through the power of The Holy Spirit direct you through the means God's Word says The narrow path is following The Scriptures as the number 1 authority... when we suggest a spiritual feeling or intuition as authority we have started down the path of error! Thus why God promised through this success 2 Tim 3:15-17 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. KJV We ask God to direct us in His Word through s/Spiritually inspired teachers that we may teach others also … so as born again possessors of God The Holy Spirit we have the unction to discern truth as we yield to His already learned truth of the Word within us... Sanctification!
  34. Guys, I'm realizing that every man made system of theology is flawed. From now on, every system comes secondary to me searching and reading Scripture for myself. When I read Scripture, I see things that contradict even the most respected preachers, theology systems, and churches. God is in control. But He wants us to pray and ask and ask. And there are people who speak to God --- and God responds by changing what He was going to do! It's okay to say, "I don't know." But I no longer will limit myself to any ism. I just need to read for myself and be alone with God and the Scriptures. Although I still enjoy the Calvinist idea of Big God, little man.

  37. Glory , hallelujah and praise the LORD . Keep up the wonderful work . You all are loved .
  38. Our first apartment was two rooms and a bathroom in a complex of many apartments all alike., was hard to find my own sometimes. Cost $63 a month including utilities. That was ninety cents less than my car payment. There were no overtime laws and we were "salaried". I was paid $325 a month to be on duty most of the time (Funeral business). I had two Sundays a month off plus one and a half Saturdays. Gasoline was usually 25 cents a gallon. My first three bedroom two bath home cost only $24,600 brand new.
  39. Unless those deceived by Satan repent, the answer is yes. They will be condemned forever. Revelation 13: 15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. It's important to know that the mark of the beast is DECEPTION, being DECEIVED... and many will be deceived, thinking that Satan is the Christ. Satan will be pretending to be Jesus and acting as a Savior (not killing people or chopping people's heads off). The mark is in (not on) their hands or in (not on) their foreheads (minds). They will be worshipping Satan and doing his work. Satan comes in peacefully and prosperously at the 6th seal, 6th trump and 6th vial, and in order to have money and so forth, one will have to worship Satan and his one-world system. One will have to choose. Will you love God or will you love Satan. Many who were deceived will repent and will be redeemed at this time ( the 144,000). Revelation 14:9-13 King James Version (KJV) 9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. 12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. 13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them. --Selah--
  40. If poor wretched sinners like us have concern about “ fairness”, don’t you think a perfect God That is full of a Love we can’t e ven fathom is at least a “ tiny” bit concerned? He knows exactly what He is doing and the Bible says that those who never had the Law have it written in their hearts .Their conscience tells them the same truths that the Law gives and their thoughts will either accuse them or defend them.God has a more than fair plan for all. I am not smart enough to be God’s critic......are you?
  41. Hi danub, Glad you brought that up. Now when someone hears the good news of Jesus dying for their sins and receives Him by His Holy Spirit into His heart, then they do NOT come under God`s judgment. Jesus took our judgment upon Him on the cross. And wonderfully, our names are written in the book of life. (as you said). Our names are written there BUT we will not be judged at the great White throne or anywhere. However...many people do not hear or know about Jesus dying for them. God, who is rich in mercy will only judge them according to their works. They are the dead who are brought to life to face the judgment of the Great White Throne. If they had lived their life according to their God-given conscience then their names will also be in the book of life, which is why it is opened. The other dead who did not do according to their God-given conscience but live only to themselves, will be judged on what they have done and then judgment will be passed accordingly. Those people did not want to live with a right conscience but took pleasure in selfishness. Hope that is more helpful, Marilyn.
  42. Just witnessed to a friend. It just flowed. She's like me: mental illness and everything. She messaged me back. We'd built up resentment toward each other when she stayed with us for a few days. But anyway, please pray for the Lord to save her and trust Jesus! I don't think I could get any clearer than I have just now.

    Being Saved

    I read that and see that it applies to those who are listed in the book of life. Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Rom 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. Faith is what gets you into the book (saves you). That's how I understand it.
  44. Welcome to Worthy, Metalharpey! Nice to meet you. Thanks for sharing a lil about yourself. This is a great place, and I’m sure you’ll find a lot of help and support. I hope you’ll enjoy your stay here. God bless you!
  45. Here is something that happened yesterday and I havent posted elseswhere yet.... My drivers license expires in a couple of weeks and I have been dreading renewing it. Im bald, my eyes are a bit blurry thanks to chemo (they will readjust over time) and I havent seen the eye doc in a few ... many ... years. So I was stressed over 1) having a photo of bald jadey 2) having to make the time to get new glasses when my eyes were not yet back to normal. Yesterday out of the blue I got a letter from mvd stating that my drivers license has been extended for 5 yrs and I do not need to do anything to renew it. The Lord takes care of me even in small things.
  46. Hmm. They say that trials build character... But being honest, I have trouble seeing that in myself. So when others communicate that they see it in me, I am greatly encouraged. Edifying our fellow Christians this way is an important task all members of the body of Christ are called to do. " Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing." 1 Thessalonians 5:11 ------------------------------ Trials are never a picnic. But sometimes the trials become downright overwhelming... Thank God, HE is there to assist us in those times. "For the Lord your God is he who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory." Deuteronomy 20:4 When we pray for the Spirit’s help … we will simply fall down at the Lord’s feet in our weakness. There we will find the victory and power that comes from His love. Andrew Murray
