  1. Yes the climate change folks are pushing to get rid of beef, as are the green people. The un has a mandate to promote bugs as a protein source. As for me, I like my beef burgers. Too bad.
  2. Grilled onions, guacamole, tomatoes,and grilled jalapenos. With some steak sauce, that's some good eating.
  3. Servants Of The King To those who are encouragers I write this poem for you To thank you for your ministry And your compassion, too To our faithful prayer warriors My sisters and my brothers Who take the time to intercede For many needs of others Your caring words of comfort And the scriptures that you bring Are helping more than you may know Dear servants of the King Keep sowing seeds of kindness As you speak the truth in love Upholding one another To our Father up above
  4. I remember those difficult years and I too was bullied. I am praying for you Renee and your brother. Be an example to them of the love of Jesus by forgiving them. It's not easy but forgiveness is a choice, and then Jesus actually helps you to forgive them. God bless. Becky.
  5. While we won't be condemned for calling someone a name, I think it's best to watch our words. This helps us inwardly, I think. Also, it's more loving to others.
  6. Welcome, Evgen! We're glad you're here. I really like the title of your introductory thread and the story behind it. Our conversations ARE important, and I believe God loves to be the topic of them. I hope you enjoy many great conversations here!
  7. I agree with johnthebaptist about being well-fed, rested, vitamin c and plenty of liquid. A cold can lead to a sinus infection so make sure she drinks plenty of water. Hot chicken soup and green tea helped me.
  8. If they are I sure am ignoring it. I love my meat. But all in moderation.
  9. @ILoveGod It is hard being bullied. Like marvelloustime, I can still remember those days. So my heart goes out to you, along with my prayers. Jesus brought me through it. He is no respecter of persons, so I know He will do the same for you.

    I will be praying for him.
  11. Even though I've been on Worthy since April, at the suggestion of a friend, I thought I'd post my testimony of being saved. (Thanks @turtletwo) Growing up, I rarely attended church and sometimes Sunday school, and the only interaction with God was the same prayer our family said together before lunch and dinner. About 16 years ago (2003), our 3rd daughter was born and we moved to a farm about 20 miles from the church that I liked to attend. At that time, I didn't know the meaning of accepting Jesus as my personal savior. I remember listening intently at the end of a sermon one day, when the pastor asked us to bow our heads to pray. This is when he said to speak from our hearts and talk to Jesus, asking him to come into our life. I know I felt quite peaceful when I did this, but I didn't really know what it was to love and serve the Lord, so my life basically proceeded as it had previously. A short time later, I became quite busy helping my husband with the farm and he was annoyed that I was attending church when he needed my help, so I stopped going to church. For years, my life became busier with working full time with my husband, raising our 4 daughters (yes, another girl) and the regular household things. yada, yada, yada. I also became a very bitter, temperamental wife -- angry at my husband over silly stuff, resentful of him wanting me to work only on the farm, and frustrated with not understanding what I could do about it. Other issues arose with emotional and verbal abuse from my husband and a lot of fighting. Jump ahead to November 2015, my 92 year old grandmother passed away, and I was devastated. She was so dear to me (and many others) and I thought I'd never see her again. After a while, I put on a smiling face when talking about her, but my heart ached to where I almost felt sick. After a year and a half, March 2017, I started to wonder if Heaven was real and if there'd be a remote chance of seeing or hearing from her again. Well, as you can guess, the Holy Spirit was working hard to convince me to find out more, and I soon accepted Jesus all over again, only this time I felt different. I understood that Jesus is the only way to true salvation. I firmly believe that I have been saved through believing in Jesus Christ and his gospel (John 3:16). I have no doubt that Jesus is God, he came to earth, died on the cross, rose from the grave, and offers new life and forgiveness to all who believe. But wait ... After this new life, I thought back of some difficult times when I realized that God was with me, protecting, comforting, and guiding. One time, I was driving a pickup truck with a stock trailer on a multiple lane highway through a town (about 40 mph) when we went over train track and the trailer came unhooked from the trailer hitch. As the trailer crossed two oncoming lanes of traffic, I was panicking and yelling, but nothing I could do except watch it roll into a telephone pole on the grass embankment. Later, I told some bystanders that angels must have been helping, because AMAZINGLY, there were no vehicles on that stretch of street during this happening, NOT ONE, until the trailer came to rest on the other side. Also, our daughter born in 2003, was diagnosed at 8 yrs old with a fairly rare disorder where she developed a cancerous tumor near her spine. She went through aggressive radiation treatments, but the oncologist said there was a high likelihood that the tumor would reoccur due to it's location and chemotherapy was not an option. The doctors were delighted to tell us a few months later that she was in full remission with every trace of the cancer disappeared. I know now, the Glory is to God, as He was there all along.
  12. Hello all. New to the forums. If you can't tell by my user name I enjoy chess in addition to discussing theology, science and other topics. Looking forward to meeting everyone!
  13. I’m sorry to hear that, Debp. I just said a prayer for you, asking the Lord to touch you with His healing hand and provide the strength and help you need at this time. He cares for those who trust in Him. I hope you’ll feel better soon. Hugs.

    Hi Church

    Hi everyone, I'm Noël, middle name Kaih [pronounced Kyah]. It was originally spelled Kaiah but they spelled it wrong on my birth certificate, so my parents just kept it that way. I didn't include my last name in my registration because I'm 15. I hope that's okay. I'll be 16 the first day of October. My dad Noah Kai is a member here and he encouraged me to join. I'm using his laptop because mine is only for school. It only connects to my school and nowhere else. I've never been a part of anything social online before, only school. I have one friend Amy. We go to school together online. My family situation is very mixed up right now so I'm staying with Amy and her family. Her dad David works with my dad. Her mom Sylvie works with my mom. So they're like family. My parents divorced when I was young because dad was sick. Then he got better after he surrendered his life to Jesus. My mom still loves him but she doesn't love Jesus, so she married someone else and now he's a Christian too. I'm also a Christian. Right now there is lots of tension and friction and arguing between my dad and mom and my step dad and my aunt. My aunt was dating my step dad and didn't know he was married to my mom. So, while all the ADULTS get their ducks and dogs and dragons and antelopes in a row and learn how to get along and what to do about their mess, I'm focusing on my school work and on making some new friends. I was part of my family's first day yesterday of everyone sitting in a circle with our pastor and his colleagues and trying to work out the situation and see who's dealing with what, and then they decided I don't have any friction with anyone, and mom's not angry with me for being a Christian anymore. So I don't have to attend those meetings anymore, and I can live at peace with Amy's family until the adults clean up their mess. They just want me to learn how to be a kid but I'm not a kid. So this is my very long hello and I hope I can get to know people better here in Worthy forums. I'm just starting grade 12 subjects in school. I'm ahead because it's self-paced and I don't usually take the summers off except for this year. I was in a secular school until last year and then a Christian school. The courses I'm taking this year are university prep courses and it's all from God's perspective. So far I'm really enjoying Earth and Space Science, Advanced Survey of the Old Testament, US and World Politics, US and International Law, and Analyzing Current Economic Issues. Next week I will start Intermediate Biblical Hebrew and Greek. Do I have to tell what school I go to? I would like to keep it private but you can ask my dad when he's back. Thank you for registering my account.

    A Happy Celebration

    I lost my bride in January 2013, and my father in July 2017. Both are home and knowing that is a comfort that makes this temporary separation a matter of "sweet sadness" instead of despair. I take no end of comfort from that knowledge. And being restored to their presence and fellowship is one of many "joys set before us" that strengthens through the present trials and makes whatever suffering obedience and submission to His will and plan requires, MUCH more bearable....home is where the heart is...and the heart is where our treasure is. My home is no longer here but I am in no hurry as long as being here means being able to participate with Him in His desire that none should be lost, and used by Him to get ALL of His inheritance He died to have, home to be with Him also...forever. And I'm looking forward to meeting Josiah now too Big hugs sis.....we got some wonderful times ahead. Can't wait for you to meet Carolyn and my dad too
  20. Continued prayers for you, Jadey. Hope you're home and recovering now. *big hugs*

    Pain

    @Noël Hi. Welcome to Worthy. Yes, you can definitely request prayer for others. I do it a lot, as do many members here. It is encouraged, in fact. I'm so sorry this happened to your dad. I will be praying for his pain to go away.
  22. Thank you Mlbrokish! It's good to meet you too. Yes, I have a great amount of family support. Even the area of my family that's broken right now, family systems break sometimes and God is able to put them back together and heal things if people are willing to surrender their all to Him. I feel lots of love in my family, and the fact they left me out of this ugly healing process shows even more that they love me. I was living with my mom but my love for Jesus was making her sad. So I'm living with my dad but temporarily staying with my friend until everything is sorted out.
  23. Thank you @turtletwo for all your blessings and encouragement on here. Your wonderful poem has reminded me that we are the servants of the King. In this chaotic world we all live in, as we all go about our busy lives, it's a blessing to come onto this forum, and read your lovely poem, reminding us of what this life really is all about. Being a servant of the King. Thank you Turtletwo. God bless you. Love, Becky. X
  24. In either case they need to repent and return to God for forgiveness. They need to make Christ Lord and Master of their lives and serve Him as they learn to walk with Him.
  25. Welcome, adoptedwatcher. Thank you for the verse. It was exactly what I needed tonight.

Let's say I'm throwing a big party and am inviting the world to the party (the forums) and I want everyone to have a great time, eating (reading through posts being fed), drinking (being encouraged to walk in His Word), and having fellowship with one another. In Israel, we have Shabbat meals -- and whenever you have 2 Jews -- you have 3 opinions -- it's GREAT to be opinionated. I encourage discussions ... but during our Shabbat meals ... we never ever get to the point in disagreements whereby food is being tossed and seriously yelling takes place! And if someone comes into the meal ... and starts throwing food ... and yells at everyone -- what do you suppose the head of the Shabbat meal will do? He'll escort those causing problems out of the house! Why? Because the whole reason for the gathering was to learn from one another ... to have a great time of fellowship! Some people like to constantly throw food and yell ... they won't last on Worthy ... because they missed the point of the party ... it's a prequel to the true party -- the Lamb's Supper! All I'm trying to provide is a place to allow true fellowship ... and discussions in love ... in the hopes it will be a catalyst for true REVIVAL based on REPENTANCE!

  27. I'm standing with you @love child Please Jesus, show your love and protection and your strength to cope with these difficulties. Amen.
  28. I want mine to be a witness. I havent decided which verse yet, but I plan on having a verse on mine, as a witness to any who see it. I got the idea after seeing someone with a large flat stone that had one of the psalms on it.
  29. Welcome! Can we call you Irene?? Hope you find fellowship here. God Bless. -- Michelle
  30. Welcome to the forum, and best wishes for your stay here and your efforts at rebuilding.
  31. Get some rest, plenty to eat, and keep warm (but not too warm).
  32. yes, we are going to be rewarded according to how much of His nature have you allowed the holy Spirit to produce in you and how many people you have brought into the same reality to be more Christlike. He will not evaluate you based on the size of your ministry or how great your ministry was. He will evaluate you based on the size of your heart and your love for him.
  33. Christ has taken your sin and given you His righteousness. This is called imputed righteousness. You are now seen as sinless before God and are His beloved child through Christ. Of course, we might sometimes need to confess our sins in order to restore our fellowship with the Father...1 John 1:9.

  35. @Seasoned by Grace I’m of the mind that it is one’s personal relationship with Christ that is of first importance. As long as that relationship is growing the believer is on their course. For it seems to me that as long as one is pressing into Christ with their whole heart, regardless of how off they may be in this or that area, God will in His time correct such a heart. So the issue seems; does the heart truly want to “know God” or “know about God.” For scripture does say; “you shall find me when you search for me with all your heart” So one’s personal relationship with Christ is the “all” of the believers relationship with Christ.....for there are many voices that say “low here, and low there is Christ”, ..... and getting lost in the sea of voices can be most disheartening..... but the Spirit He has caused to dwell in our hearts can and will direct us to all truth, as long as we stay willing. Anyways, getting to know Christ Jesus in all reality and all truth is the only thing that will cause the heart to truly be at rest. So to Him do our hearts turn and to Him do we look. For as scripture says; John 6:68 (NASB) Simon Peter answered Him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life. Blessings in Christ my fellow laborer, Not me
  36. so we are not to eat meat sugar salt eggs milk and other products like butter and cheese honey ( because the bees may become extinct ) wheat as it takes too long to produce and is not reliable potatoes ..look what happened in Ireland when the crop failed bananas as it is causing deforestation rice as it is causing flooding to land that could be used for other crops The list goes on and on and on … we are NOT mindless robots and the government is supposed to serve us not the other way around There have been similar scares many many times and yet despite so many rumours and even tragedies such as foot and mouth destroying hundreds of thousand of our cows and swine fever causing pigs to be killed off wholesale with warnings that it would take many generations to build the herds back up to a sustainable level we are still able to buy our burgers and bacon from butchers, supermarkets and even fast food outlets I cant see me being still on this earth when we have to go to a zoo to see cows sheep and pigs
  37. Lol; we all have our pulpits, yours doesn’t sound that bad. I think I understand your sentiment, but we have God’s promises that He will return for a Bride without spot or blemish. And again God will always have a remnant, for He knows those that are His. But I do think you are right, scholastic learning has overtaken the pulpit as a whole. The simplicity of the Gospel of Christ has been clouded with much human learning of the definition of words. “The just shall live by faith” Has been pushed to the side. Paul’s question; “one thing I want to know of you, how did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law or by the hearing with faith.” Has lost it’s power and authority, to what human understanding can grasp. But rest assured, God is even at work today in all the hearts that are open, and is working to open those that aren’t. For scripture says; “my Father is even at work even today” And so He shall remain till all has been accomplished. Blessings in Christ, Not me

    Hello

    Hi, messedup. Welcome to Worthy. You can't be too messed up if you believe and read the Bible.
  39. It is TRULY wonderful to be able to rest in the finished work of Jesus! Still, many have yet to find that rest; so in that regard, I am concerned about about Satan's schemes. We know he's doomed to fail; but many people perish for lack of knowledge--especially when they hit those detours, sudden stops, and confusing turns you mention in your OP. This is a precious truth, supported by so many scriptures! God has promised to direct our paths if we acknowledge Him in all our ways (Proverbs 3:6); and even if we make a mistake, or if we become victim to some terrible circumstance, He can still use that awful thing for our good when we love HIm and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). God's plan stretches across the expanse of time into the future we cannot yet see, but we know because we are His, and we trust in His mercy and grace. Isaiah 46:10 says it well.... "Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, 'My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure.'" We are filled with praise and thankfulness because we are included in His pleasure!

    Hi again Noel, and hi to your dad, too!
  41. The Seven Churches of Revelation in Turkey are also known as the churches of Asia and include historical beauties such as Ephesus, and Laodicea Way to go, @Jostler and @Sonshine☀️!!!
  42. Thank you, lol .... I get bored with the standard fonts and I grabbed this one out of a program on my computer
  43. One of the hopes Abby and I have had for this thread, is that we might be able to expand awareness of a situation...a "system" that has taken root right under our noses. This "system" has many parts and many purposes, but the main purpose is to prepare the world for a global government and eventually install the character the Bible calls the "beast" as head of it. Along the way to that goal we find literal mind control playing a significant role in many aspects of advancing that goal. Epstein was involved in providing victims, literal sex slaves to be abused in satisfying the perverted lusts of very powerful people. Where you find systemic child sexual abuse you WILL find satanism...the two go hand in hand and are far more common than many realize. You can bet that Epstein's organization was not limited to providing "teen" aged children. I want to begin by sharing an example of how to uncover and learn more about this "system" and how widespread it is. There is a young lady some will call a "conspiracy theorist" as a way to discount anything and everything they are not willing to actually look at and judge for themselves. She has a YouTube channel and uses it to research and ''connect the dots" on things the mainstream media will never touch. I would call her a "citizen reporter" who is looking into readily available information the MSM will NEVER touch, because they have been co-opted by the "system". Just do a search for the following on YouTube and it should take you straight to Polly's work...it's just under 20 minutes of material. BOOM(S)! Mainstream Reporter Has Deep Swamp Ties - Where is Ghislaine? Check her out....see if you think she is some kind of fruitcake coming up with wild theories or not. She finds publicly available information....and uses that to ask logically valid, rational questions.....and you have to wonder why the MSM is ignoring those obvious questions. A process anyone who wants to understand how this world really runs must learn to engage. She also begins to point out one of the 'gatekeepers' in the MSM who is claiming to be ahead of the game in exposing Epstein's horrific history...but why is she not talking about Ghislaine Maxwell (whom she knows personally)? After watching these people for years, their actions and choices become predictable. I'm not trying to "big note" our own predictive capabilities, but we started laying out how this Epstein story was going how to unfold three weeks ago, and we've watched as predictions have begun to play out in real time. The point is that after you become aware of and have watched the "system" a few years you begin to realize they are PREDICTABLE....it doesn't take a genius with psychic powers to see it. "tracking" yet another example of how the system works, real time, as it unfolds looks to me like an opportunity too good to miss. Abby and I are collaborating on how best to use Epstein's story to reveal some of the extent, and pervasiveness of this system. And she might be able to restrain my tendency to be long winded ...she's got editorial control of the final product. See me blameshifting already?

    My dad

    Hi, Sorry for your loss of your mom, too. Praying for your dad's journey as he now has to go forward without his mate. May God enable you to be helpful to him as well as finding the grace to suffer his need to try to go on. Note: I have been the son whose parent find they had to go on forward, and I have also been the father that lost his mate and did remarry. None of it comes easy it seems. Children are affected, protectively concerned. Makes for some bit of difficulty for all. Praying for you and your father. May you do better than I did as the son.
