    For me

    If everyone who sinned left these message boards, Worthy would not exist anymore! Repent and ask God to strengthen you to temptation, and He will surely hear you and build you up! Praying for you!
  2. Far out! And here I thought I was the only one that saw the disguised serpent in the hillsong pulpit, ...preach it brother!
  3. Yeah, the Bible does say that, but what maryjane said applies too. Perhaps I'm wrong, but just posting a Bible verse sounds rather cold, especially to anyone who's walked that road. That sort of thing doesn't help, and can seem like a slap in the face to someone who's really hurting because it can sound like the person saying it doesn't really care about them. I apologize if I'm wrong. I've been down that road in the past, and since I spend a lot of time with folks in recovery I know a lot of people who have been down that road too. Life in this world is not cut and dried, and the enemy just loves to bring up suicide when it seems like your whole world has just ended. Sometimes our minds can be so messed up, so overwhelmed that it seems like checking out is a good answer - but its never a good answer. Like maryjane said: The Lord is the only one who knows both sides of the story in each case. "Shall not the judge of all the earth do right?"-- (end of) Gen 18:25
  4. It can be both ... very easily. For example, in the 1 Chronicles 21:1 Then Satan stood against Israel and incited David to number Israel. In the 2 Samuel 24:1 passage it says, 2Sa 24:1 Again the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and he incited David against them, saying, “Go, number Israel and Judah.” As a Father would discipline his child, it appears that God removed his hand of protection against Israel and allowed a judgment. Of course, this judgment was stayed ... where? At the Temple Mount, where later we find the Temples were built -- where God stopped the judgment against Israel.
  5. I hate it that people believe that suicide sends you to hell. Their basis is that you die with unrepentant sin. Well, we ALL die with unrepentant sin. There's no way on earth to confess every single sin you've committed. No way. No how. Not even conceivable. Suicide is a grievous sin and hurts so many. But if Jesus Christ did not die for all of our sins, then he died for none. Sometimes, what is frightening to me is that people ask this question because THEY are contemplating suicide and they want spiritual permission. I've seen that at least a dozen times. John says just a couple of verses past John 3:16 that "Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God." This means to me that yes, even suicide is forgiven. But a Christian must be so cautious not to take this verse to mean that they can sin willy-nilly and it's alright. One who believes that is more than likely not saved. Paul says in Romans 8 that he is confident that nothing can separate us [Christians] from the love of God that includes "life nor death". Death would include suicide. Suicide does not mean automatic hell. Yet, importantly, suicide nor any other sinful behavior is NOT an option for the Christian. No Christian should want to meet God after taking their own life. They would be forgiven, yes. But it isn't not the way for Christians.
  6. Jesus said.. “The sick need a physician” Paul prescribed wine for Timothy’s stomach troubles.... i suffered from severe depression for 5 years......medication helped me IMMENSELY ....it was an answer to my prayers .....get help you wherever you can, and give God the praise....God bless
  7. My heart goes out to you but know this Jesus will never abandon you. I have felt the same things you said. Never give up. turn you eyes upon Him and never give up. He is closer to you than you know. Many have suffered deeply because of our sins. Jesus will not leave you or forsake you. He Loves You and He will always love you.
  8. Perhaps they know that nobody can start with Genesis and read thru to Revelation and come out as a Catholic.Roman Catholicism has enough lies to fill a warehouse .I know some that have been saved despite the false teachings of that cult.I don’t know how .Its a miracle.One who adheres to Catholicism and calls himself a Christian is like a follower of Warren Buffet calling himself a Communist.One is as insane as the other.
  9. Why do you even ask this question? Before this time people people will be drawn or repulsed by Gods message.. So the message of God will be doing it's job to separate those who Love the truth and those who love unrighteousness... When the number of those who are to be justly saved is reached then there is no longer the need to draw people by the Message of the Love of the truth that saves.. Thus God can make Himself obvious to one and all so that His majesty can no longer be resisted or denied.. Then all will bow the knee to Him no matter if they hated His truth or loved his truth.. And then the final judgement can begin..
  10. The Bible explicitly warns of worldwide deception in last days. People will turn away from the truth and be deceived by doctrines and beliefs influenced by satan and demons. Psychiatry/Mental health services are operated by groupthink and allegiance to a book called the DSM5 which has no scientific basis, but an ideological set of beliefs voted on by a group of psychiatrists. Although they are fallible humans. These people are deceived and caught in an ideological delusion. They suffer from poor insight and judgment as professionals. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.
  11. Sometimes I can tell someone is intentionally going out of their way to make me feel inferior. To make me feel ugly, less than , poor, insignificant. Because of my class, race, looks, etc. It it makes me so mad and upset that they’re doing it on purpose and enjoying every second of my sadness and anger. I want want to get mad at them, not just for myself but on behalf of all people they treat that way. I want to put them in their place! Who do they think they are? They’re the ugly insignificant one! But...what does Jesus want me to do?
  12. I got a phone call from the wound care nurse telling me my mom may need a surgery called a Colostomy (because recent loose stooling is causing her large ulcer wound which was healing so nicely to suffer a setback. The wound is unfortunately in that area.) I have to help make the medical decision on this one (Mom is unable to due to brain damage. I'm her poa.) I feel sad to put her through any more surgeries but perhaps she really needs it. The nurse said I should research it. So I will. It seems kind of scary to me and I don't know if it will be painful. I really need God's wisdom on this. Please pray He guides me to make the decision that would be best for her. This is what I've learned so far: Colostomy is a surgical procedure that brings one end of the large intestine out through an opening (stoma) made in the abdominal wall. Stools moving through the intestine drain through the stoma into a bag attached to the abdomen.
  13. Hebrews 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, Under the old covenant's Levitical priesthood, there was no provision for sins of presumption, or sinning willfully. In the verses below we can read that no sacrifice was provided for intentional sin. Numbers 15:28 And the priest shall make an atonement for the soul that sinneth ignorantly, when he sinneth by ignorance before the LORD, to make an atonement for him; and it shall be forgiven him. 15:30 But the soul that doeth ought presumptuously, whether he be born in the land, or a stranger, the same reproacheth the LORD; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people. 15:31 Because he hath despised the word of the LORD, and hath broken his commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his iniquity shall be upon him. The book of Hebews gives Jews, undergoing persecution, the knowledge of the full scope of the new covenant that Jesus provided by His blood sacrifice. The book of Hebrews presents Jesus as high priest after the order of Melchisedec, not after the Levitical priesthood. Hebrews 6:20 Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. The law, as well as the priesthood, was changed. Hebrews 7:12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law. Under the new priesthood, and change in the law, there still remained no sacrifice for willful sin. Below is a warning to the Hebrews about reverting back to the Levitical priesthood, and it's sacrifices. They are warned about willfully rejecting the blood sacrifice of Christ as being sufficent to remove all their sin, and bring in the new covenant. Hebrews 10:29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?  
  14. That's why we can choose how we witness. but I left this.... If we are followers of Christ doesn't everything fall back on Gods word? 1 Peter 4:11 If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.
  15. Maybe that's the point. You know what I do sometimes? I did what some good friends taught me. I ask the Lord a question and then I sit in silence or with some music and just listen. I'm always afraid He's going to say, " Wow Naomi. You know, you really messed up big time. I'm getting sick of you." But He never does. He can give you rest from perfectionism. Christianity isn't navel-gazing. " Am I good yet?" When you walk every day (if you're disabled... sorry) do you look at your feet super close? No. You just do it. Obeying Jesus is like that. Don't look at your feet, look at Him. The longer you look at Him and the more you look at Him, the more you find that you are, indeed, walking.
  16. Hi naominash, That`s really good to hear sis. It`s all an upward journey for all of us. You are doing so well thinking and working through your obstacles and still pressing into the Lord. Remember He is making us like Himself, so that He may shine through us. The hardest lesson for us is to let Him. We so, so want to shine and we put ourselves forward too much, whereas only what is of the Lord will really affect others for real life. You are very precious to the Lord, Naomi, and the coming forth of the Lord in your life is well pleasing to Him. Keep submitting to the Lord through this trial and you will help so many who are struggling in the days ahead. Blessings, Marilyn.
  17. In relationship with The Lord I look at my looking on the outward part as dead and of the flesh... God does not even bother looking there so I am trying to not either. Boy oh boy is that not a constant battle
  18. “When it’s right with me and God the joy comes” You have tasted and seen, that the Lord, He is good, (by experience.) Experience is always the best teacher. Now you are in possession of this truth. It will never leave you, and you can never lose it. Blessings, Much love in Christ, Not me
  19. Honestly, I believe the enemy is at work and was at work even at the beginning of the church so the true message of the gospel would be distorted or confused. This is an article that I wrote which explains how different people can come up with a different conclusion and yet BOTH be true. I thought I would write a modern-day parable, using the Word to help illustrate a point. Obviously, the parable is fiction, but I am using it to explain a point. Back in the days of Jesus, there were 3 blind men, each were healed by the Lord. One man was healed, when the Lord went out and spit into some dirt and made mud and placed it on his eyes and told him to go to the pool of Siloam and wash himself. He went on to led a congregation called the Mudivians! John 9:6-11 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing. The neighbors therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged? Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he. Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened? He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight. One blind man was healed when the Lord spit into his eyes. He later went on to start a congregation called the Spit-tites. Mark 8:22-25 And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him. And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought. And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking. After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly. One blind man was healed by a simple touch of the Lord. He later went on to start a congregation called the touchivians. Matthew 9:27-29 And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy on us. And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord. Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. Now the years had passed and the three blind men were leading their respective congregations: Mudivians, Spit-tites, and the Touchivians. Each of these once blind men, claimed to know the way of being healed because each was healed by Jesus! When these men got together, each refuted the other one, because of a very real event in their lives, and how they were healed by the Lord! Each contended that their way was the right way of being healed! They had forgotten, that their healing had not rested in the method of healing, but in the healer! So it is in our days, we forget that the Lord cannot be contained in a box, or his methods are the same for every person! He created each of us, unique, and for each and every person that is brought into the Kingdom, there's a unique method the Lord uses -- but we all come into the Kingdom by the same way -- through Messiah who is the way, the truth, and the life! So if you are a mudivian, a spit-tite, or a touchivian, remember the common bond that unites us as one! Don't lose site of the Lord -- and maintain your focus on HIM! For it's the Lord's desire -- John 17:20-21 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. Let's not lose sight of the reason we are all here, for the hope of spreading the GOSPEL!
  20. As advised, I'm praising God through my trials because He is always good. And as always He blesses me back. I am experiencing such a feeling of "You are acceptable. You are loved." Peace surrounds me. Thank you, Lord. Thank you, Worthy prayer warriors. The prayers of the righteous availeth much!
  21. Actually, the understanding of faith is as easy to understand that a child can grasp it. Simple version, God created you and loves you. The issue of sin separates us from God -- thus God sent His only Begotten Son to be the lamb of God for the world -- to take on the sins of the world. When you believe in Jesus ... and turn to God in repentance ... your sins are now covered by the blood of the lamb and now you can be in right relationship with God! It's nothing that we truly did ... but rather what God already did for us! The blood was thoroughly shown throughout the Scriptures ... and there is life in the blood. Even Satanists realize there is power in blood as they continue to do blood ritual sacrifices for power. There is something more than just blood ... and God used the blood to cover the sins of the world!
  22. I'll take question 3. It's actually a number of questions so I'll answer one by one. Why is it all so complicated? Do you have the Holy Spirit and are you saved? As an agnostic, Christianity seemed difficult. As a believer, it all clicked. If you're not sure, this is a good place to figure that out as well. Why did God require sacrifices (including his Son)? God is Holy, good, and righteous. He cannot overlook sin, or He wouldn't be righteous. The punishment for sin is death. When Adam and Eve brought sin into the world, death was the consequences. God is life, the absence of His presence is hell and death. Someone has to die for sin. But God loved us despite our rebellion and sent a sacrifice in our place. In the Old Testament, lambs are slain. Better lambs, then God killing people for the sin, although that's what we deserve. In the New Testament, the final sacrifice arrives: Jesus. He makes us right with God because someone had to die for sin. But God proves himself both Just and Loving by sacrificing His own Son. Why are Old Testament morals so different from my own? Because you and I are sinners. Our flesh hates truth. And without God's grace, we naturally hate God and His morals. Why did Old Testament God focus on one nation instead of all His children? I don't know, honestly. But all humans are not His children. They are His creation but only those who have a renewed heart are His children. But He is the Lord and He does as He pleases. That is His answer to many of our questions. Why do “Christians” read the same book and have such different conclusions? Because each human is different. However, man's interpretation does not change God's character. Would God make things difficult/deceptive intentionally? (Matthew 16:18, Mark 4:11-12) Yes. In Romans 1, I think the Bible talks about it. God is not obligated to reveal himself to anyone. He is searching for those who seek Him. To those who don't care and choose their own way--- He gives them over to further delusions. God can be a "Savage" like that . To those who seek truth, however, He reveals Himself freely.
  23. Idk what I am , I am a lost political millennial. but I am black, for sure. And I can no longer get jiggy with Lecrae. he irritates me.
  24. Here's a few books and resources I've found helpful over the years on various life topics. Mark Gungors' Laugh your way to a better marriage DVD set. I've not read any of his books, but my wife and I attended one of his seminars. When I got home my stomach and chest were literally aching because I had been laughing so hard. This is the only set of DVDs we have ever bought from a teacher of any type. There are some clips from his videos on YouTube. Shanti Feldhahn: The "For Women Only" and "For Men Only". She started doing research for writing a fiction book. She wanted to accurately include what men were really thinking. After talking to a few Christian men in her life (her husband and dad as I recall), she was rather shocked at how much she didn't know about how men thought and ended up doing research which led to the material for a non-fiction book. Lynn Clark's SOS Help for Emotions was the book the counselor I saw recommended that I read. While some Christians decry anything having to do with psychology, I found this book well rooted in common sense and practice rather than in wild guesses about human nature. The basic premise is that our negative emotions (falling into 1 of 3 broad categories of fear, depression, or anger) are *triggered* by certain things rather than *caused* by them. We would usually say "my mother drives me crazy", put the blame on her, and avoid her. In contrast, we should be saying "my mother does things that I react to badly; I cannot change my mother but I can figure out why I react this way to her and I should change how I react." John Eldredge's Waking the Dead was the book God used to start showing me that being a good Christian was not being a cookie cutter copy of what a good Christian is supposed to be. I started to realize we each are unique creations and works of art of God meant to reflect His glory in a way unique to each of us. I had spent decades as a Christian carrying burdens God never meant for me to carry. For me, this book was one of the first times I realized that the work of Christ in my life was not meant to make me more productive and successful spiritually but rather make me into the person God has created me to be to walk with Him more closely. I spent years soaking in many of the Christian classics. I've got several shelves full of such books. Tozer, Andew Murray, Watchman Nee, Richard Baxter, E.M. Bounds, David Brainerd, and a host of others. These have had a deep influence on who I am today. While I found these inspiring and helpful, I had also unintentionally started to burden myself with the secular western mindset of being productive. Instead of seeing a closer walk with God as the goal as I read, I started to see being a productive Christian as the goal. Over the years, I lost myself in my gifts, talents, passions, callings, and a zeal to see God do things in my life and others. I saw my purpose in life as being a Christian who accomplished great things for God. I started to see the purpose of my Christian life as wracking up as much treasure in heaven (in the form of changed lives) as I possibly could. I had come to see my Christian life as what God would do through me to reach and change the world rather than simply becoming the person He created me to be. I've found that working on becoming who He created me to be has made me much more productive than when that was my main focus. I've also found that life is simply much more enjoyable. Sadly, it took me decades to reach this point. I testify about what God has done in my life so that hopefully others can shave a few decades off this process.
  25. Anyone who tries to make someone feel inferior for any reason is only hiding deep inferiority complexes within themselves. The only way they can feel better about themselves is by making others feel less than them. Once you can realize and remember this, when it happens again, you will find you feel sorry for those doing this and not angry. I often wonder what has happened to this person to make them so insecure and/or hateful. Don't allow anyone to control how you feel about yourself.
  26. Yeah, just to give an example, Jimmy Swaggart sells study bibles for around $50 to $100 each, and claims they make it easier to read the Bible. I actually have one of the New Testaments which was actually given to me by Gabriel Swaggart, and I read some of the Gospel of Matthew and got sick of the text of the Bible always being interrupted by Swaggarts' oppinion. Now at least Gabriel gave away several of the Bibles at the youth conference one day, but that was not the norm. Normally they sell these things for about 2 or 3 times the price of an ordinary Giant Print reference Bible. But what does the Bible say about this? 1 John 2: 20-29 says we don't need a teacher to tell us how to read scripture or learn anything from God, because the Anointing from the Holy Spirit is sufficient to teach us all things. Teachers still have their place, but it's supposed to be an individual walking relationship with God, not a bunch of drones in a church congregation following a "king" or "queen".
  27. On a more serious note. You may find help by reading through the forums here. Reading what others have posted about prayer and the things they have gone through. Sometimes God says "no" to our prayers. I don't know why. All I know is I need to trust that God has a plan for me. Even though at times none of the things going on around me make any sense. I am sorry I can not be of more help at this time. I am sure others on here will be able to answer your questions much better then me. If at all possible it may help you to find a good pastor that you can sit down and have a talk with. By a good pastor I mean one where you can question everything without fear of their judgment. If you have more questions feel free to ask. I know people here will do their best to answer them.
  28. Just woke up and read this and I can relate to most of what you asked and said. I recently created a post titled " I ofter read of "God told me".". I have read and heard of many people who said right here of God telling them to do something and I was just wanted to know the method that God "spoke" to them. The answers were varied and and mixed. Probably later on I would say some more about your questions. I often pondered on the situation of David and the numbering of the people and as you said it had great consequences. I have had many battles in the spiritual realm that confirms what the bible speaks of in terms of evil and the wiles of the devil. Like you, I sometimes struggles with the lack of a personal intimacy with God, but my spirit would not let go of God as it sees the bible as the truth of our lives, even though we struggle with the parts that we cannot come to terms with or understand fully, even though others say they have. The question though is one of "doubt". It is one of the most powerful weapons the enemy uses to draw the believer away from the truth and back into the worldly kingdom with all the glitters and things that is placed seductively before us. A believer has to come to grips with the term " suffering". It is a part of the christian life and each would have his own to bear. Though Christ paid for it all, we are to endure hardship as a good soldier and not let the devil throw us of the pathway in our journey, which in the flesh is for a very short time. Things hope for, evidence not seen .....
  29. Hi Wade, my personal take on this one: God didn't let Abraham sacrifice him; It was a test. By Bible I mean the ultimate authority... I don't notice any fallacy in it. Appeal to authority fallacies are often made when it comes to human authority. The Bible however, as I see it, is redacted by God in its entirety. Thank you for your honesty. God dried the whole place up by various means, not only the wind, see also Gen 8:2-3. Regards, Thomas P.S.: just curious: may I ask why you answered me and not Jayne? Jayne wrote in more detail.
  30. Counseling is something I could really use. I hate asking for help and I don't like pity but I do love good advice and learning new things about how I tick. Thank you for the link!
  31. Perhaps it is best for all of us to start with self, humbly praying before our awesome creator much like a collector of taxes once did with such contrition: “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’ But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

    Looks right to me!
  33. That's the problem, we are watching the great deception that Paul wrote about 2,000 years ago, ...today, it's in the Church!!!
  34. Well I disagree. With the second part. Not with the first part.
  35. Heres a simple recipe for Otai! It's perfect for summer https://www.thecoconet.tv/coco-cookbook/coco-cooking/how-to-make-otai/
  36. Yes, well, if you go back to the first post in this thread, you will see that I have rewritten it totally. There are now a dozen broad categories planned, and I expect 100, more or less, specific topics that will fall under those heading. I have done this based on the premise, right or wrong, that there are some orders that will work better than others. Premise upon premise. For example, God is a big topic, but how do we know, what we know, about Him? The main answer to that, is we know from the Bible, so I hope to establish a few things about the Bible, so that we can understand it and trust it etc. If we do not trust information about God, we might doubt God Himself, and fail to understand Him and His purposes, His will. So, my intention is to lay a framework that hopefully helps us in our journeys.
  37. 'And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: .. and the LORD sent thunder and hail, .... and the fire ran along upon the ground; ...... and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt. ........ So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, .......... very grievous, such as there was none like it ............ in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation. And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt .. all that was in the field, both man and beast; .... and the hail smote every herb of the field, ...... and brake every tree of the field. ........ Only in the land of Goshen, .......... where the children of Israel were, ............ was there no hail. And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, .. and said unto them, .... "I have sinned this time: ...... the LORD is righteous, ........ and I and my people are wicked. .......... Intreat the LORD (for it is enough) ............ that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; .............. and I will let you go, ................ and ye shall stay no longer." And Moses said unto him, .. "As soon as I am gone out of the city, .... I will spread abroad my hands unto the LORD; ...... and the thunder shall cease, ........ neither shall there be any more hail; .......... that thou mayest know how that the earth is the LORD'S. ............ But as for thee and thy servants, .............. I know that ye will not yet fear the LORD God." And the flax and the barley was smitten: .. for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was bolled. .... But the wheat and the rie were not smitten: ....... for they were not grown up. And Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, .. and spread abroad his hands unto the LORD: .... and the thunders and hail ceased, ...... and the rain was not poured upon the earth. And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased, .. he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his servants. .... And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, ...... neither would he let the children of Israel go; ........ as the LORD had spoken by Moses.' (Exodus 9:23-35) Praise God!

    Hi Shelz, welcome to Worthy
  40. Update Betty saw her Doctor today, he removed the drain tube and some of the bandages that was making it a little tough for her to function normally. She got a good report with no signs of infection, and everything appears to be normal for this type of Surgery. The other bandages that are still in place will be removed this coming Monday by her Doctor. God Bless everyone Praying for Betty. We appreciate your prayers. Our God is a Awesome God He Reigns with Wisdom Power. Amen
  41. Who are you talking about? This much I know even reading your scripture Jesus never paraded as a pope Nor the apostles. They popes act and look like religious authority but they are robbers and thieves . The RCC was founded after Bishops of Rome were flattered by Constantine and they lusted for power over the church. They made themselves up as religious Monarchs. They fashioned a tale that all bishops of Rome derived there authority from Peter . All you see is for a religious show of monarchs and believe their own creation.

  43. But ugliness does exist . its anything , ANYTHING contrary TO GOD , contrary to His inspired Holy doctrine . Contrary to Christ , contrary to the pattern HE taught and the apostels taught and kept . ANYTHING contrary to GOD is just UGLY to me . Just plain ugly . BUT THE LORD , HE IS PURE BEAUTY and every warning to every promise , every word He ever spoke , PURE BEAUTY . AND happy is the one who hears and does .
  44. This is a similar to how we make crepes, skim milk and all. For for the filling, a sprinkling of sugar with fresh lemon juice is quite tasty, so is just honey alone.
  45. I definitely don't think that God sees us as ugly or gorgeous. Those are man-made standards. God does not look on the outward appearance - mankind does that. So says 1 Samuel 16:7. God looks on the heart. God said this when Samuel was about to choose King David's oldest brother to be king because of how he looked. When the woman anointed Jesus feet with the expensive oil and was criticized for it, Jesus said that she had done a beautiful thing for him. That's where God sees beauty - in righteous behavior. Jesus was not attractive at all. So says Isaiah in his prophecy of the Messiah of Isaiah 53. "....he had no form or majesty that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him..." Jesus was not that Caucasian man with perfect and soft wavy long hair we see so many times. I'm telling you the truth. The longer you focus on yourself and how unhappy you are with your looks the more miserable you will become because that will end up being all that is important to you. This world is flawed and stupid and sinful. It's up to you to present yourself as happy, content, going-for-God, and self-assured. Let me tell you this story. I have a former student who is very beautiful. She takes more selfies than anyone I know personally. But I know her because I come in contact with her all of the time and I supervised her later as she became an adult at her job. She is the most miserable person I know. Unhappy and ashamed. She believes herself to be imperfect in her looks and these selfies are for self-assurance of which she has NONE. It's up to you. You are either going allow your feelings - which are fleeting - about your looks ruin your life and your relationships with all you know or you are going to say, "This is me. This is God's child. I will face the day in faith, trusting God no matter what the world thinks of me." Choose, dear. And choose today.
  46. For the most part, yes, (and I believe our new bodies will look like us) Over time, our personalities, likes, dislikes, cause us to look a specific way - but the frame is designed by God - shape of nose, eyes, eye color, hair color, body build, and so on. Some we can change, hair style, and so on, others we can not change without surgery.
