  1. 'Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:' (Ephesians 1:1) Hello again, I have read through each open-hearted entry, from the beginning, and thank you all for your contributions. To add or subtract, question or comment on any one of them, other than I have already done, would be an intrusion, for I feel that each one is a reflection of the walk with God that each one of us is engaged upon by His grace, in Christ Jesus. What a beloved Lord and Saviour we have, haven't we? How blessed we are to know Him, and to be the objects of His love and grace. My love to you all, in Him. Thank you for being a blessing to me by sharing as you have. Praise His Holy Name! In Christ Jesus Our risen and glorified Saviour, Lord and Head Chris
  2. Do not feel bad about this towards yourself. You did not choose this and cannot control it. This does not make you less of a man. Continue to trust and follow the Lord, and he will guide your steps. Praying for you!
  3. Where God guides, He provides. No matter how things look, God is still in control. Stay in peace and be hopeful. God loves you and me Plavious
  4. Hello, I'll introduce myself again, my name is Matt and look forward to speaking with everyone. I attend a church 2-3 times a week, am a teacher and leader in our children's ministry. I also was raised a Jehovah's Witness so I am very knowledgeable about their beliefs and practices, if anyone ever has questions or needs guidance.
  5. Lord I come to you today to ask forgiveness we humble ourselves Lord and ask you to heal our nation. We ask your forgiveness for the murder of millions of babies Lord please forgive us. We ask Lord that you forgive us for being Luke Warm and please bring us to our knees Lord so that we may once again allow your Holy Spirit to work in our lives. Lord we ask you to take the bitterness of our nation and bring us together again. Lord we are sorry for taking you out of our Government our Schools our Colleges and our Churches and we ask you to forgive us for the Prosperity messages yes we Lord are guilty for thinking of only ourselves. We humble ourselves and ask you to forgive us for not praying enough and talking to you Lord. Please forgive us for not reading your word and learning more about you and your ways. We have sinned greatly as a nation against the Lord our God in the words of Charles Spurgeon, Prayer pulls the rope below and the great bell rings above in the ears of God. Some scarcely stir the bell, for they pray so languidly. Others give but an occasional pluck at the rope. But he who wins with heaven is the man who grasps the rope boldly and pulls continuously, with all his might.
  6. Of course, Mel. Praying for the Lord to fill the needs of you and family. God bless. Shalom, David/BeauJangles
  7. Hi; In Him, though I know these words weren’t directed at me. I just wanted you to know how much life, truth, wisdom and openness before God there is in these writings. Blessed me so much, listened to them multiple times. Saw a believer that was willing to “sell all they have and follow Jesus” or in modern words “give up all of self and follow Jesus”. Than to read the words that say all; “even to my own hurt” These words are the hallmark of a soul that is willing to let truth as it is found in Jesus, do all in and to them that truth would have done. Whether these truths, please, or don’t please self. For the joy that comes in the morning, after these truths do their perfect work. As I’m sure you have learned and tasted by experience, is a joy that nothing can compare. Blessings to you, for blessing me, and all those that would read your words. Much love in Christ, Not me
  8. * I too have benefited from the instruction of such, to whom I will be eternally grateful, '@In Him'. * These are useful verses that you have provided, and refer to those who have received a 'trust', which they are called upon to faithfully administer to others. Which brings to my mind another passage of Scripture: words spoken by Paul to Timothy:- 'Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us.' (2 Timothy 1:13-14) * I believe that the content of the epistle to the Ephesians, along with that of Philippians, Colossians, 1&2 Timothy and Titus, contain a trust, a deposit of truth, for which faithfulness in Christ Jesus was, and is still, a vital requirement. It was not the gospel of salvation, or of justification by faith, vital though those are, but the knowledge of the administration of the church which is the Body of Christ, of which Christ Himself is the Head. The content of which I believe was the substance of the 'form of sound words' which had been heard and entrusted to Timothy by Paul: and was so vehemently opposed: prompting the following words of Paul, in 2 Timothy 1:15:- ' This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes.' * These epistles were written to believers, to whom God would make known the truth that is, ' Christ in (or among) us', which is, 'our hope of glory, as members of the Church which is the Body of Christ. This was unique at the time of writing, as was the hope and sphere of blessing spoken of in these pages. A unique unity, in which the Jew had no prior place, a unique calling, and a sphere of blessings which are spiritual, and all ours in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. A completeness and acceptance in Christ, a standing of holiness in which there is no blame to be found; and a spirit of Sonship which could call the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 'Father'. Forgive me for getting carried away with the glory of this, @In Him.. With love in Christ Jesus Chris
  9. Welcome, Matt. We have a forum concerning the beliefs of JWs where you might be able to post the differences between their beliefs and our statement of faith, or true Christianity. It is in the Pavilion.
  10. Seal this prayer from your heart, in the mighty name of Jesus. I'm praying for you as well. God bless. Shalom, David/BeauJangles
  11. Hello I am new at this site. I hope an opportunity to help in growth in faith will be shared here too. Thanks and God bless us all
  12. I don't know if this belongs here because I did not see an evangelism forum. Back in 1969 after coming home from Vietnam, a woman gave me a chick tract entitled "This Was Your Life." After reading this tract I felt conviction of sin right away. I would like to say that I came to the Lord shortly thereafter, but it took 5 years before I actually repented of my sin and received Christ as my Savior. The sad thing is, that I experienced this conviction of sin off and on (mostly on) for the next 5 years. I can only guess as to why I waited so long, but I am very thankful to this woman who gave me this tract. The link below will tell of a man who passed out tracts everyday for over 40 year. It is only 9 minutes long, but in my opinion very inspiring. I'm sure you know why. I hope all who listen to this will also be inspired also. I don't think you were able to listen to the link on the effectiveness of tracts, because it was removed from here by admin. My fault. I moved it to the Video Forum under the title "Do Gospel Tracts Really Work?" in BIBLICAL TOPICS It is only 9 minutes long, but well worth the time. Please let me know what you think. Gary
  13. ' Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:' (Ephesians 1:1) Hello there, Paul's epistle to the Ephesians, is addressed to the 'Saints' and those who were the 'Faithful in Christ Jesus'. I ask for your thoughts on this, please. Saints are believers in the Lord Jesus, yes, but this goes further, doesn't it? To 'the faithful in Christ Jesus'. What is your understanding of what is meant by this? What is meant by being 'faithful in Christ Jesus' in your estimation, or more importantly in the estimation of God and His Word. Thank you In Christ Jesus Chris
  14. Hi De Maria, and welcome to Worthy. God bless! Shalom, David/BeauJangles
  15. Excellent stuff Marilyn! Well said.
  16. I believe you have a contradiction by connecting the "lake of fire" (comes into play AFTER the 2nd coming) with the "place of weeping and gnashing of teeth" (ALWAYS assigned in Scripture with the tribulation period BEFORE the 2nd coming). The weeping and gnashing phrase is NEVER tied in with the lake of fire, because they are separate events. Matthew 8:12 12But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth." After the rapture - the Jews are brought to jealousy. Luke 13:28 28"There will be weeping there, and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you yourselves thrown out. Matthew 22:13-14 13"Then the king told the attendants, 'Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.' 14"For many are invited, but few are chosen." Matthew 13:42 and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.Psalm 112:10 The wicked will see it and be vexed, He will gnash his teeth and melt away; The desire of the wicked will perish. Matt 24:51 and will cut him in pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Matt 25:30 "Throw out the worthless slave into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Lamentations 2:16 All your enemies Have opened their mouths wide against you; They hiss and gnash their teeth They say, "We have swallowed her up! Surely this is the day for which we waited; We have reached it, we have seen it." Rev 18 The "whore" (left behind believers - or Jews if you prefer) are said to be "weeping" . Jer. 3:21 A voice was heard upon the high places, weeping and supplications of the children of Israel: for they have perverted their way, and they have forgotten the LORD their God. Jer 9:10 For the mountains (churches) will I take up a weeping and wailing, and for the habitations of the wilderness(tribulation) a lamentation, because they are burned up (first two trumpets), so that none can pass through them; neither can men hear the voice of the cattle (why not? - because they are gone - rapture); both the fowl of the heavens and the beast are fled(Holy Spirit - white horse, and true Christians); they are gone. Jer. 48:32 O vine of Sibmah, I will weep for thee with the weeping of Jazer: thy plants are gone over the sea, they reach even to the sea of Jazer: the spoiler (A/C) is fallen upon thy summer fruits and upon thy vintage. Mal 2:13 And this have ye done again, covering the altar of the LORD with tears, with weeping, and with crying out, insomuch that he regardeth not the offering any more, or receiveth it with good will at your hand. Isa 65:19 (AFTER the 2nd coming) And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.
  17. Shalom my brother, Praise Yahweh! Many methods are needed and no one will be do the exact same thing (where would be the point in that?). I'm confident that this could well be your calling brother. May the Father bless your debates with detractors richly, in the name of Yahushua, for His Glory. Thanks for taking time to look at the website. Love & Shalom

  19. This seems to be the theme in all things . Remember how james says confess your faults , and PRAY that ye may be healed . REPENTANCE is the KEY . IF any errs let them be quick to be corrected , let them confess and forsake and let all prayed to be healed . Let anything which is lame , be healed and not continue in what causes one to sway from the path . Heed not the sin which does so easily beset , repent and forsake , be healed and follow Christ . We got a major massive delusion that has been building and I worry for many now . For if our eyes our not ON CHRIST can none make it . HE is all we need , and HE can succor , give aide to use that we overcome any temptation . But if a man believes CHRIST has not this power , then they doubt the very POWER of the VERY CREATOR . Yes, we must dig only more , cling only more , heeding Him , praying more and HE will be with us even in the hour of our death . HE will be with us in all our sufferings , and we shall rejoice in HIM . I have loved you all, but the time I have been warning us of , gets only nearer . The time of the great deception and great world wide betrayal which it leads the world too , is filling up and running its course . Its sucking the life out of all who go under it . And it will cause them in time , to only hate the true saints and TRUTH only more . Until it has filled their minds full of the false solution by which they believe they will achieve world peace and unity . For a king and kings shall arise and offer up the cursed hope of this false solution . And we will be seen as total monsters of an all inclusive sin loving world and many will think they do gods will for world peace and unity by having us rounded up and killed . YES a great deceiver will arise , even now its in the world even now its system Is ready and the minds and hearts of all trapped in its web are being made ready , for the arrival of what will seem to be a savoir but In truth , THE SON OF PERDTION fully manifested . and the great hour of all out persecution will come raging against the lambs . But fear not what is coming , FOR GREATER is HE that is in us , that he that is n this world . man can kill the body , but after that NOTHING . Be faithful unto death and a crown awaits , a crown awaits all WHO LOVED HIM . Stand firm on the FOUNDATION of CHRIST .
  20. There are struggles that dwell within most hearts be they young or old, and for some the struggles fought within are few and easily won, but for others the struggles within seem constant and keep hearts weary and troubled. It is the battle between right and wrong, good and evil, light and darkness. This struggle can be based on future plans but most often the struggle is current and in the moment. A dear friend taught me a valuable lesson with words that he would say to me at times, "Do not give up what you want most for what you want now." At times the moment that we find ourselves in can affect the future moments of our life in great and powerful ways. It is all rooted in choice, but choices can be greatly affected by the people around us and the situations we find ourselves in. To control our choices we need to control the moments and the situations that we place ourselves in. The power of now is a great power. If your "now" moment is a moment in heavenly light surrounded by love and light then power will be given to you to make wise choices but if your "now" moment is a moment in darkness, or in the shadows near light, surrounded by others who are depressed, drunk, or angry, then your choices will be affected by your moment and wise choices become most difficult. See the end before you begin, surround yourself with light and with people of the light and do not give up what you want most for what you want now.
  21. Shalom Scott, Welcome to the forum! Yes, please get posting away. I look forward to reading your topics. Love & Shalom
  22. Father I pray that you help nigh to ask you to be his Father. I pray that he realizes that because he is asking for prayer to be saved, he knows that You are real and that You want him to be Yours. I pray that after he accepts You that You help him to grow more in more in his relationship with you and never becomes weak. Amen
  23. @Godismyloveforever, think about how the Bible teaches us to handle even our biggest fears.... In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace (Ephesians 1:7). "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" (Jeremiah 29:11). Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7). May you be blessed with peace in your situation, knowing that God is in control and He will take care of you!
  24. Willa ... where is the Pavilion? I don't see a forum with that title.
  25. Promises and sister selah , I seen double prayers on my post . Surely you all don't think I follow that false prosperity gospel . Its a false one . The one I speak of IS CHRIST . He is our riches . Now lets put those hands back up and praise the Lord .
  26. Hi there Matt, and welcome to WCF, from me too.
  27. Hi Scott, and welcome to Worthy. God bless! Shalom, David/BeauJangles
  28. OH YES its my PASSION . FOR JESUS IS MY PASSION . But the passion of most leaders today , is a dead and empty bomb that will explode upon them , ON the DAY OF THE LORD . I want us to ponder something . Is GOD angry with those who are passionate to ensure that none follow anything or anyone , BUT CHRIST as the only savoir . But I will tell us what makes God FURIOUS . When men let men worship whatever they deem as God , and just come together for unity . Those men of belial trod JESUS under foot . And whether it costs me all, I am going out the way I came in , SAVED BY GRACE and sounding out the ONLY NAME whereby one is saved . And exposing every lie birthed of darkness . WE in the last of the last of the last of days . And most folks are just hugging others right to the lake of fire . Those who LOVE in Spirit and truth will warn , and pray for those who do so . Hands up and let all rejoice IN THE LORD . Let every hand be raised and the song of praise to the LORD who is worthy to be praised . You all are loved . To the LORD be all glory to the LORD be all praise .
  29. Making the Bronze Basin 'And he made the laver of brass, and the foot of it of brass, of the lookingglasses of the women assembling, which assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. (Exodus 38:8) Praise God!
  30. * This is your passion, @frienduff thaylorde, and is on your heart to make known: I agree there is only One Who can save, and that is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, through the sacrificial offering of His Only Begotten Son. As Peter said, by the power of the Spirit in Act 4:12:- 'Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.' Praise God! In Christ Jesus Chris
  31. Yes Chris, exactly. Thanks for the reply. God bless! Shalom, David/BeauJangles
  32. Dear Abba Father I pray to you in the name of Jesus for all of your children in the entire world. Please help them with their needs. Especially protect them from the evil one. When they suffer in any way, please help them to focus more than ever on you and not lose their way. When they are scared help them to turn to you and not (as I have done) make stupid mistakes that can make things worse not better. You Father are the one who makes things better. Join all of your children's' prayers together. There is power in prayer. I know that is Your will. Let us all help each other with prayer. Thank you Father. I love you more than anyone or anything and will for ever. Amen
  33. Shalom Matthew, Welcome to WCF! I look forward to conversing with you at some point too. I hope you enjoy your time here. Love & Shalom
  34. Churches are full of those that have been deceived by the Enemy. J.VernonMcGee said that he did not think that even half of his congregation was saved.He is not alone in that sad conclusion .Those “trying to be saved “ as opposed to those who are “ trusting” to be saved are the unsaved tares in the Church.

  36. Not exactly an accurate statement. But he answered, ‘Truly I say to you, I do not know you.’ Matthew 25:12 He doesn't say that He never knew them, only that He did not know them at that point in time. The foolish virgins brought lamps with oil, just not any extra for the long haul. Last trumpet on the last day. Endurance. Perseverance. Extra oil. The message is clear.
  37. I don't know if the dead can hear us. But I can see that if a person goes to Heaven, their attention needs to be to Jesus. And they are discovering how Jesus is so wonderfully marvelous and kind and loving, and they are discovering their whole family of Jesus people also so marvelously kind and family together, so more than their loved ones and friends on this earth have been, in maybe more favoritistic relationships. So, in case someone passed on the Heaven were to say something to us, he or she might say, wow you all need to see how Jesus really is and become loving as family with everyone else, the way we are here ! ! ! And yes this is how God's word already says for us to relate in His love > "Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you." (Ephesians 4:31-32) When my mother died, I did not have indication that she was a believer. I did not try to send her any message, but I thanked God for however He would do what is good, with her. And I knew I had done as well as I could to love her, but that was not very well. So, I needed much more correction. And even though I had not loved her like I should, now I could love any and all others better and better the way I should have loved her; Jesus does want us to love any and all people > "if you love those who love you, what reward have you?" (in Matthew 5:46) And become more and more dearly loving as His family with all of our Christian brothers and sisters > Ephesians 4:31 > not only with certain favorites. So, I understood that, now as I grow in Jesus, I can love people better than how I did with my mother. She and I had problems in our relating, but now I can be more showing interest in any person who is a problem person, and care for the person in prayer and with compassion.
  38. Thank you for helping me better understand the concept of talking to my daughter now that she has passed. A lady today also told me that I could possibly pass messages on to Katelyn through Jesus Christ our Lord. Indeed, Katelyn is in heaven.
  39. Hi, nice to meet you and welcome to Worthy Christian Forum. I'm a young teen who still believes and practices what my Bubble teaches regardless of the time. Because i believe that though the world may change, my God and his word never changes.
  40. Hi Snow!! It's great to talk to you again, also! I pray your life is good! That is quite an amazing plant! I would never have thought the stalks would be so useful as to be able to create an easel or walking stick. Also, the possibility of it living for 600 years is incredible in itself! Thanks for the information and picture. I find it fascinating! Blessings always!
  41. Hi..Whenever I get a chance I like to go for a bush walk...Here is a close up of part of a plant found in Australia that was made through Jesus...(All things were👍😉)...I wonder if any one can guess which plant!? . God bless
  42. Hi, I got my lab report this morning and the results was so bad. I was diagnosed with severe Tetratozoospermia. "Teratospermia or teratozoospermia is a condition characterized by the presence of sperm with abnormal morphology that affects fertility in males." It is a low blow on my self esteem. It feels like my manhood was totally stripped off. The doctor said that the only way that we can have a baby is to undergo assisted procedure which cost a lot of money. We don't have any of that amount. Whenever I see my wife, I feel so embarrassed because I cannot make her pregnant. I feel so useless. We are married for 3 years and we really want a baby. Help me pray. I just keep myself soaked on God's word to fuel me to keep me going.
  43. I’m in a bad situation spiritually. I need to be saved. Please pray for me.
