  1. My daughter woke up just now and told me she feels sick too. She works over night at,a store. She said she has to go in because her 90 days are not up. I told her don't go in but she says she has to. Please pray for her and for her protection . Thanks I super appreciate it.
  2. My son needs special prayer for this day at work. He got virtually no sleep last night. Plus, he has a meeting (prior to work) and he is afraid of nodding off in it. Thanks.
  3. HI all I am feeling pretty sick with cough heavy chest. Sinus infection. Hope I don't have bronchitis like lat year. Well it's getting worst. Please pray and I thank any who does pray for me. God blessing.
  4. Please pray for my wife Linda. Our town house is about to have a fire inspection. My wife has blocked off exits for various reasons. We have been in conflict. She is experiencing weakness, pain and nightmares. She will want me to take off time from work to care for her. Our income and health insurance are dependent on my job. I am about to have expensive repairs on my old car as the bottom is about to fall out.
  5. Individuals have worn everything from animal skins, dust and ashes, sackcloth, rent (torn) clothing, and armbands. All have been worn as symbols of remorse, grieving, and repentance, starting with Adam, Job, Jacob, David on through to today. Mourning is more than hurt, it is also sorrow at personal loss, it is remorse, it is a process of acknowledgement, of repentance, and even regeneration. Without repentance of sin against God and the regeneration to receiving personal salvation the mourning is often unabated as well as unfruitful debilitating emotion.
  6. John preached repentance. David was an illustration of true repentance. God's grace and help have sustained me through the last few years. Many times I have refrained from doing things that might not be pleasing to God because I didn't want to lose that fellowship.
  7. There is vert strict rules as to what was decided to add to the canon.... I don't think we can answer all those questions that it has to muster to add it to the canon.... However that does not make it untrue as some people are want to do..... it was within the general knowledge of the people during Jesus time and during the first century when the New Testament was written. It has always been part of the Ethiopian bible and there are fragments of many copies within the dead sea scrolls.... It's also referenced by the writers of the New Testament and many of the first century church fathers.... Should it be canon.... no I don't think so, but I do believe 1Enoch is mostly true and should be understood so as to grasp some of the context of the Bible itself. 2 Enoch is a very bad translation and 3 Enoch is basically Jewish Kabbalistic mysticism and should be totally rejected... Just my two cents.
  8. A heart after God is something that I have always wanted for myself. What does that mean? Over the years I have come to see it means (for me) a denial of all of me. My very self, all that I was born with in Adam. Me, myself, I the sinner that was birthed, it was and is a continual reckoning that person dead and a continual presenting myself to God as a living sacrifice. That He might do in me and with me that which pleases Him. A heart that would willingly give up all of themselves that the all of Christ would have free rein in the heart and life. Still a work in progress, but if I can have; “all of Him and nothing of me” I will have run my race well. Blessings, Much love in Christ, Not me
  9. Justification, per dozens of scriptures, comes through Jesus, not sacrifice, works or even our attitude. Salvation is 100% through the cross, not through our "best efforts".
  10. Lord, touch this family and bring comfort from anxiety, peace beyond understanding, and complete healing. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen
  11. Hi all. I've been having a flare up: extreme swelling in my left abdomen along with pain and other symptoms. My dad and I discussed going to the ER, which I opted not to do for now. My husband will be flying home from his work trip later today. I could use the Master's healing touch, some rest, and restoration. Thank you in advance for all that will pray. May God richly bless you! ❤️
  12. Like a booster rocket sending a payload into orbit once it's lifted off, sometimes we need a boost in ramped up prayer. We get off the ground (so to speak) in life by prayer and blessing... but its in that ever struggling mode fighting gravity and we never quite get into orbit (continuing with the analogy). My Beloved and I are very blessed! So I am not crying "poor mouth" here. The thing that concerns me is her health. God has healed her of all her ailments (from shingles, hip replacement, several bouts with pneumonia) but there are ongoing losses of energy... and the ongoing nerve pain from the shingles she had two years ago. Granted, neither one of us are spring chickens anymore (we're in our "golden years," ah heck, we're old). Just so hard to say because we fight it so vigorously. But I look at my Beloved and I see her looking very frail at times... not wanting to do activities she always wants to do or having the energy to do them... Believers here have prayed for us many many times. And we are both grateful beyond words! But I pray for booster prayer for our last years here on Earth. Th LORD knows these and any other details... so I'll not burden you all with each and every one of them. The priority of them, however, is my Beloved Bride's restoration to full health, pain free, and rejuvenation of strength and energy and vitality and improved eye sight (this too has been going bad) and freedom from allergies. I boost to you my many thanks in love and in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  13.

Please pray that they will invite me, and also allow me to speak in the conference.
  14. Hi Guys It's a cold windy day this morning. The ground is covered in a white blanket of snow. That just said as a side. I have been reading about David, and wondering what it is about David that made him known as a man after God's own heart. Look forward to reading what you share.
  15. Prayed, i did this one with your other one at the same time.🙂
  16. Faith without works is dead ,its not realfaith . and works without faith is death . BUT WE ARE ONLY ONLY ONLY JUSTIFIED BY THE BLOOD OF CHRIST . AND IF we are truly born again and have heart like child like true faith , OH we would have good works . FOR HIS SPIRIT would produce inside us those things pleasing IN HIS SIGHT . But their is no other source of us being justified by any other thing , BUT ONLY BY THE BLOOD OF CHRIST . NOW LEAP up and do a double praise , no a TRIPLE praise to the LORD .
  17. @Annette This is such a good question! Thanks for asking it. I've had loved ones who have asked me the same (especially in light of David's adultery with Bathsheba followed by setting her husband up to be killed in battle when she got pregnant with David's child.) The first thing that stands out about David is his faith...In all the land there was not one other person who would rise to the challenge to fight Goliath! "And David said, “The LORD who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” And Saul said to David, “Go, and the LORD be with you!” (1 Samuel 17:37) Hebrews 11:6 tells us that without faith it is impossible to please God. Faith is very important to God. It is a theme woven throughout the Bible over and over. So David's trust in the Lord was key to their close relationship. David was also a man of worship. He is described as "the sweet psalmist" in 2 Samuel 23:1. All those beautiful songs that are part of our Bible today poured forth from his innermost being. "“O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever.”Psalms 118:1 This was a reoccurring cry of praise from David. He was a man of zeal who put his all into everything he did. For example: he danced before the Lord with abandon in 2 Samuel 6:14 “And David danced before the LORD with all his might" God said of David that he was one who would fulfil his will. "he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.” Acts 13:22 David must have loved God deeply to have grieved as deeply as he did in the anguished words of Psalm 51. Yes, he fell big but he also repented hard. He could not bear the thought of being separated from God. "Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit." Psalm 51:11-12 I'm sure there are more reasons and I look forward to following this thread and hearing everyone's thoughts.
  18. @Albin Just want you to know that we are still praying for you. Stay in the scriptures and He will speak to you... Jesus said, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” (John 5:39)
  19. I'm talkative. Sometimes it's very spontaneous too. One time I was soaking in the tub and there was a beam of light shining in through the blinds. That and all the conditions in the room made for a really pretty display of dust motes passing through the light. I passed my hand through it, played with it a bit, and admired it as I thanked God. As far as I'm concerned that was art God had arranged for me to see so I made my enjoyment of it known. Just a little thing but it struck me as God saying "I'm thinking of you.".

    Thank You

    Thank you, Lord! When trouble comes, you always lift my spirit.
  21. Thank you for your prayers. Please continue to pray. I will be taking time off from work tomorrow. There are hurdles to follow.
  22. Lord, I pray a blessing on the moderators of this site. I also ask that you bless worthy members and that you use this site to further your kingdom. Protect us all from the workings of the evil one. I pray that your will in our lives be done. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen
  23. I praise God that when I read the bible God speaks to me through his word. I thank God that he is always working in my life and in all of us believer's lives ... everything for good..may he receive all honor and glory for who he is.. God! Hebrews 4:12 King James Version (KJV) 12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
  24. Oops... sorry... must be experiencing a posting delay
  25. It goes for anything of God …. He holds no error and for those who claim there are errors in His Word I believe we will be shown there are not by God.... The Scripture is His and the non-resolved areas where we cannot answer for now will be resolved to the glory of God.
  26. People don't seem to know that the error is just once for it not to be of God....
  27. Thats the only book that records world history be4 the flood, a very precious one more worthy than diamond.
  28. Thanks for the comments I was poorly conveying that the kingdom of heaven is not in heaven, it is from heaven in it's origin from God; it is fulfilled on earth by the promised, prophetic, Davidic kingdom, in which Christ reigns as King.
  29. it's kind of hard to put into words for it is something for me that took a bit of time to get a grip on.... it's more an experience than knowing what to do.... For instance many years ago I wanted to make a change in my career... I was a successful Television studio director and pretty successful at that, but it didn't really pay well. I tried to make a move and it failed miserably... I thought I had a job at North American Rockwell installing electronics in air planes.... all worked out well leaving the tv station but the weekend it was final, they fired the plant manager at the plant I was supposed to work at and all of a sudden that job was no longer available.... they let me work on the line drilling holes and shooting rivets but that is a real nowhere job.... It took about six months but God worked out for me to go to work for Xerox Corp and that turned into a 38 year career and a very good retirement.... But the only reason I got the Job was that the Lord did things to make it happen.... things outside my power to affect... That is just an example.... all the day long I take things to him and discuss with him in my mind as to how to accomplish things or walk away. I've actually had him repair equipment that I was having trouble finding the problems over the years.... sometimes pointing thigs out to me and sometimes the things just started working for no reason at all....
  30. Hey hey, Tobias and Christine. Welcome to this worthy place!
  31. My parents moved a few times when I was young before I could remember much. We moved once between states about halfway through first grade. I cannot recall much about it so it must not have been too traumatic. I was then in the same rural school district until I graduated HS. Overall, I was heavily involved in activities, however, I really didn't like the social dynamics in school from about 6th grade on. I'd have probably done better home schooling or unschooling with access to various activities but that really didn't exist much in that era. I didn't fit into any of the social groups but got along reasonably well with most people. I wasn't a loner but really didn't have any close friends I spent much time with. Went to a state university (where I met and married my wife who also graduated from there). Went to grad school at a state university in another state. Worked there for a few years after graduation. Moved back to a small town and worked at one company for about 20 years which was a roller coaster. The main reason I stayed so long was it was a 10 minute walk to work and I had flex time opportunities for family stuff. Worked at a non-profit for a year or so. Quit due to high stress. Decided to move to a new town for family reasons after 20 years in that town. Kids were grown and had moved out. I've been unemployed/semi-retired since then living off savings and a few consulting jobs. Now working on writing and creating material for a consulting business in the education and training arena.
  32. I'm just reading War and Peace now so I thought I could use it as a nickname Thank you all!

  34. very true it was the Pearl Harbor thing the PNAC group said they needed to make the changes .
  35. I have. No reply yet, but will wait and see.
  36. For those who do not know what I'm referring to as far as Ezekiel 36& 37. Eze 36:20 But when they came to the nations, wherever they came, they profaned my holy name, in that people said of them, ‘These are the people of the LORD, and yet they had to go out of his land.’ God disperses the Jewish people out of the land ... and yet they RETAIN their national identity while in the NATIONS for 2000 years! Think about it -- it's amazing when you truly think about it! Eze 36:21 But I had concern for my holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations to which they came. Eze 36:22 “Therefore say to the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord GOD: It is not for your sake, O house of Israel, that I am about to act, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations to which you came. The reason for God restoration of the Jewish people ... is to display God's greatness ... it's not BASED on who they are -- it's based on WHO HE IS! Eze 36:23 And I will vindicate the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, and which you have profaned among them. And the nations will know that I am the LORD, declares the Lord GOD, when through you I vindicate my holiness before their eyes. Eze 36:24 I will take you from the nations and gather you from all the countries and bring you into your own land. This is happening today! In the vision of the prophecy of DRY BONES ... God foretold the restoration of the Jewish people back to the land ... PHYSICALLY FIRST without the Spirit as of yet ... Eze 37:7 So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I prophesied, there was a sound, and behold, a rattling, and the bones came together, bone to its bone. Eze 37:8 And I looked, and behold, there were sinews on them, and flesh had come upon them, and skin had covered them. But there was no breath in them. The word breath literally means SPIRIT. God foretold a PHYSICAL restoration ... before a SPIRITUAL RESTORATION. Eze 37:11 Then he said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. Behold, they say, ‘Our bones are dried up, and our hope is lost; we are indeed cut off.’ Did not this happen in full detail after the holocaust? It seemed all was lost ... Eze 37:12 Therefore prophesy, and say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I will open your graves and raise you from your graves, O my people. And I will bring you into the land of Israel. Eze 37:13 And you shall know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves, and raise you from your graves, O my people. Eze 37:14 And I will put my Spirit within you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I am the LORD; I have spoken, and I will do it, declares the LORD.” ... we're seeing the restoration of the Jewish people back to the land ... just as it was foretold ... and in the future we will see the restoration of the Jewish people back to their Jewish Messiah! Mat 23:37 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing! Mat 23:38 See, your house is left to you desolate. Mat 23:39 For I tell you, you will not see me again, until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.’” Realize the importance of God's plan of restoration ... of all nations, tribes, peoples and tongues ... and how the Jewish people fit into His plan!
  37. The belief in Purgatory spits on the Power of the Blood Of Our Savior.....it reveals a complete and utter misunderstanding of the very basics of Christianity......Believing that one can/ must perform some sort of “ mopping up” of the sins the Blood somehow couldn’t handle is a fairy tale that has lead to the damnation of many poor, Bible- ignorant souls.

    Praying for their and their family members good health. Praying God give them wisdom and guidance as they serve here and the right words and what they want to say will be expressed and understood and not misinterpreted. Blessings on all their endeavors.
  39. I am not convinced that the U.S. will be much of anything during the 70th week / 7 years. All it takes is a couple of high air burst nukes and almost the entire electric grid will be fried. All computers, cars, cell phones, etc will be just piles of inoperative junk. Since there is no real solid allusion in scripture to what could be considered the U.S., I doubt that we will be even a blip on the radar in the final days. It can be fun to speculate and try and fit things together, but more than likely we all are wrong on most of this stuff. I really don't spend much time if any on where does America fit in the end times. The whole world is collapsing anyway. I am somewhat convinced that folks who waste and inordinate amount of time trying to fit the U.S. into the end time scenario have an overinflated view of America. I hate to burst their bubble, but the U.S. is not the focus of the end time and probably will be totally sidelined and inconsequential. I love America. I stepped up and paid my dues in the military for America. But I also have a solid perspective on my kingdoms, and the one I am most concerned with is not on this planet at this time and won't be till Yeshua takes the reigns and establishes it. America is going down just like all the others.
