    -God. The Bible. Prayer. Street Evangelism. Non Denominational.
    I would like to see the Body of Christ come together as one. Our guideline must be the Word of God and it rightly divided. Of the 20 some Bible versions I have, I find the KJV to have the most depth.

  1. Hi carolina16, Welcome! Along with what others have said, perhaps you can keep an eye out for another job if things don't change. Not all work places are the same. In the meantime, as employers ask us to do "right things" know we are not actually working for them in particular, but the Lord Himself! Col 3:22-24 Servants, (employees) obey in all things your masters (employers) according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God: (23) And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; (24) Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. I've been around a few wrathful hotheads while working over the years, most settle down when we look to Christ to be calm ourselves and speak softly. Generally the strifeful yelling side tones down. And God sees all this: Pro 15:1-3 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. (2) The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness. (3) The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. In one instance years ago, I had a man loudly cuss me out for no reason at all, and was provoking a fight. The other men about awaited with anticipation on my reply. Instead of rising to his level, I said something vague, yet polite, and went on to ignore him and go back to my work. He apparently felt pretty bad about it later as the following day, he apologized! Pro 25:21-22 If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink: (22) For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee.
  2. False Prophecy: Sept. 23rd

    For those that might be interested in the midst of all this hubbub, I've been using been using a free cross platform (Linux, macOS, Windows 32&64 bit, Ubuntu) planetarium software called "Stellarium" for some years. Check it out: http://www.stellarium.org/ It's amazing what the good Lord does have up there for us to see at night! Gen 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Genesis 2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
  3. False Prophecy: Sept. 23rd

    Thanks Yowm, great article. A portion of the same below, emphasis mine: What Will Happen on September 23, 2017? by Dr. Danny R. Faulkner on May 1, 2017 (Dr. Danny R. Faulkner holds an MS in Physics from Clemson University and an MA and PhD in Astronomy from Indiana University and taught at the University of South Carolina Lancaster for over 26 years.) "..Recently at Answers in Genesis, we have begun to get inquiries about a supposed event of great prophetic significance on September 23 of this year. Many videos on the Internet are promoting this. On this date, the sun will be in the constellation Virgo (the virgin), along with the moon near Virgo’s feet. Additionally, Jupiter will be in Virgo, while the planets Venus, Mars, and Mercury will be above and to the right of Virgo in the constellation Leo. Some people claim that this is a very rare event (allegedly only once in 7,000 years) and that it supposedly is a fulfillment of a sign in Revelation 12. Revelation 12:1–2 (ESV) reads: And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth. ...Many of the videos that discuss this have various embellishments, such as tying this event to the supposed rogue planet Nibiru or the tetrad of total lunar eclipses in 2014–2015. I’ve previously written about these other two subjects and found them wanting, so we ought to be wary about this one too. ...I first saw Jupiter when it was close to Virgo in 1969—I have watched Jupiter pass through four complete orbits since. This means that Jupiter appears in the part of Virgo corresponding to her womb, along with the sun in Virgo and the moon at her feet for a day or two every 12 years or so. The last time this happened was in 2005, so why was that event not heralded for its prophetic significance? I suspect that it is because YouTube was very new then, having started in February of that year. This year, with the huge popularity of YouTube, it is much easier to propagate these ideas. ...Since the claim that Leo has nine stars is false, the assertion that the addition of the three planets brings the total number of stars in Leo to 12 is false too. And how rare is this occurrence, to have these additional three planets in Leo at the same time that Jupiter is in Virgo? It isn’t that common, but it certainly has happened many times over the past 6,000 years, so the claim that this unusual event is so rare is false too. And how do we know that Jupiter must represent the child? There is no evidence for that either. Instead, this is a mere assertion that someone made, with many others repeating the claim. Based upon Revelation 12:5, most commentators think that the child was Jesus. Some promoters of this supposed sign (for Sept 23rd) claim that the Hebrews associated Jupiter with the Messiah. Again, this is a conjectural assertion not supported by any facts. These sorts of claims amount to Rorschach tests—people tend to see in them what they want to see. ...I have identified several problems with the supposed sign of September 23, 2017. However, there are other, broader problems with it. One of the purposes that God ordained for the stars is for them to be signs (Genesis 1:14). However, to truly be a sign, shouldn’t such things be obvious, at least to a few people? ...Instead of setting dates, we ought to be ready for His return at any moment. Are you ready? What sort of prophetic event is this sign supposed to usher in? Clearly, most people promoting this have in mind the Lord’s return. Some explicitly state this, but others, mindful of the words of Jesus in Matthew 24:36, are hesitant to make that claim, though their implication is clear enough. These sorts of claims or intimations have been made many times before. For instance, the four lunar eclipses during 2014–2015 caused many people to anticipate the Lord’s return then, but of course this did not happen. I suspect that the same will be true on September 23 this year. People who get excited about supposed signs miss the point that Jesus made (Matthew 24:36–51). Instead of setting dates, we ought to be ready for His return at any moment. Are you ready?" -------------------------- Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
  4. Lost Loved One

    Praying MissKayLay! Ask the Lord to show you what else to speak with what they need to hear. His Word when spoken in truth and love is sharper than any two edged sword in this world. Pro 25:11 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver. Heb 4:12 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. As ambassadors of Christ, the Lord is with us as we look to speak His truth to loved ones and others! 2Co 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. 2Co 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. Our prayers are often similar to yours, in the respect that we have asked God to put Christian folks into the paths of lost family members, and the lost acquaintances we meet or read about along the way. I'm mindful that God not only hears our prayers for the lost, but that He works on drawing folks to Himself when we do. Some family members we have been praying for many years. Gal 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
  5. PHONE WITNESSING

    Hey Don, welcome! Well, with the mention of your being a 74 year old man who has witnessed in the streets, the keyboard can be your format here. The "lost" at the "Outer Court" and "lost seekers" at the "Seekers Lounge"come to this Christian site quite a bit, I'm sure you could pass along some of your wisdom their way! If you don't feel up to open air any longer and can still get out, pull up a seat on the park bench, and look to share your faith there with whoever is sitting on it with you! Grab a handful of Christian Tracts and place them prayerfully into peoples hands, or any other place about for folks to pick one up. I've been into a number of rest homes/rehab centers over the years sharing our faith. Perhaps if you can get out enough to visit them, generally they are more than willing to let folks talk with the folks there. Many a "lonely" people in those places that need our Savior Jesus Christ and are sitting on the edge of eternity! Blueyedjewel had some great ideas too! Just to let ya know, I believe it's after 5 post here on the board, you can then post in other areas. I believe it's to keep out bots and/or internet trolls.
  6. I was working with another man building a garage. At the time, it was not far from the Dover AFB. When I saw a number of B-52 Stratofortress with escorts of fighter jets armed to the teeth flying by, I knew it was something major. We found out a short time later. This is part of an outside Ocean City MD memorial with a piece of the World Trade Center in memory the Firefighters that died on that fateful day: Close up of the plaque: It's a bit faded, It reads: Once a part of the World Trade Center, this twisted piece of steel rest here as an enduring memorial to the 343 New York City Firefighters who perished in their desperate attempt to save lives on September 11, 2001. We will never forget.
  7. I Want to Share My Christian Drawings

    Hi Butterfly28, those pictures do indeed! Jesus, hope and anchor for our souls, and the souls of hopeless souls that would call upon Him! Heb 6:19a Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast...
  8. AIDS used to be called "GRID" in the 1980s based on it's being linked with a collapsed immune system associated with male homosexuals. The homosexuals not liking the stigma associated with "GRID" later had it changed to "AIDS." The late symptoms of the HIV infection are referred to as AIDS today instead of GRID. GRID = Gay-related immune deficiency AIDS = Acquired immune deficiency syndrome HIV = Human immunodeficiency virus As we can see in the Center for Disease Control statistics, it should still be called "GRID" with the homosexual being at the top of the list with their HIV infection rates. In the statistics brought to us by the government CDC in 2011: Of the 1,794 sodomite teenagers in the younger category, 92.8% infected. And of the 6,998 younger sodomite men , 90.8% infected. I can't leave out God or His Bible, who lets me know their lifestyle is called sin, which is destroying them. I thank the same God, who lets us know they too can repent and believe in the Gospel. Forgiving them of their sins, and giving them strength to come out and be free, and live a life of normalcy by His standards.
  9. Thought to pass along some of my thoughts, some already mentioned in part by others. I believe we are seeing a bit of God's judgment on this nation. Harvey with it's swath of destruction, 2nd hurricane Irma currently hitting Florida, and possibly quite a bit more. Hurricane "Jose" is on Irma's heel. Along with the destruction from these hurricanes, fuel and produce lost. A number of fires burning across the U.S. west. In the news this week Equifax has been hacked, dumping 143 MILLION of our credit ratings complete personal info, and SSNs. Plenty of info for criminals to steal nearly 1/2 of our nations identities. LGBTIBPQ continue to scream for their sinful "rights." I've spoke recently with a nearby neighbor that has divorced her husband, and has "married" a woman... I've shared the Good News with them, with their need to repent. Spoke the same to her husband before he left for another married woman... Where "real" news is concerned, the price for "peace" with Israel is them always giving up land, land that God has given them by covenant through Abraham, and they are going nowhere, in spite of all the replacement theologians out there. In 2005 when the Jewish were moved off the the Gaza strip, in part as a "peace deal" brought on by this nation, hurricane "Katrina" hit us within this same time frame in August killing 1,500 people in a most wicked part of Louisiana. Right after I heard then mayor Ray Nagin damn our Lord on national TV, the levees gave way a short time later. While these deaths were tragic, EVERY DAY this nation kills over 3,000 unborn babies through abortion. Nary a mention of any of this on the news. In reading through these pages, I was not aware of Houston's 78,000 square foot Planned Parenthood that George brought up, tragic. I continue to reach out to the lost, including many entranced in a system that meets on Sunday and calls itself church. It is not the Church mentioned in our Lord's Word, only an outward appearance of such, and it tickles the ears greatly. It's the "ear tickling" that increases it's numbers, not God or preaching His righteousness. Recently rebuked a false pastor in our area for his teaching New Age "Spiritual Formation" and his showing his congregation "The Shack" movie. Where god the father is a transvestite large black woman, and god the holy ghost is an Asian woman with all of it's Universalist false christ overtones with lots of emotion well outside of God's Word to keep the sheep entertained. The "church" is eating this damnation up, along with the book that has sold millions of copies! False Pastors in this class are destroying and scattering the flock, while those that remain in their hearing find themselves in a spiritual delusion of a "pseudo christ." Another pastor of late lets me know my sins are not forgiven, as I did not understand when I was baptized it was "WATER" that washed away my sin, and not the blood of Christ. Showed him the truth in the Bible that goes against this cultic think, it fell on deaf ears and he let me know I was not "saved." I reciprocated, and let him know I thought the same of him. As goes the church, so goes the nation. Our prayers continue to be for for God to raise up again some who have a love for Him and His truth. Not only recognizing His love, but also teaching His view of sin and judgment. Those who would call out for repentance not only towards the lost, but for those living in falsehoods that have never represented Him. One of the most popular radio stations in Christendom now only recognizes "love" and generally leaves out sin, repentance, and judgment. When they are mentioned, they are twisted is such a way as to dismiss their true meaning. A lop sided gospel is no Gospel at all. God's judgment on the U.S. in part? Yes, I believe so. Symbolically consider "pastors" here in Jeremiah for our generation. Note "Whirlwind" in this case would also translate to "Hurricane" for our day: Jer 23:1 Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD. Jer 23:2 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD. Praying for the Jews and Gentiles here, encouraging news for "real" Shepherds but as yet, we continue to see so little in this corner. Jer 23:3 And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. Jer 23:4 And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the LORD. I meet plenty of these folks, and with some regularity "rebuke" the false prophets, priests, pastors and teachers calling for their repentance. Along with their fluffy false prophecies, adulteries and spiritual adulteries: Jer 23:10 For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing the land mourneth; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their course is evil, and their force is not right. Jer 23:11 For both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in my house have I found their wickedness, saith the LORD. Jer 23:12 Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery ways in the darkness: they shall be driven on, and fall therein: for I will bring evil upon them, even the year of their visitation, saith the LORD. Jer 23:13 And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel to err. Jer 23:14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah. Jer 23:15 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land. Jer 23:16 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD. Jer 23:17 They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you. In these latter days, I'm considering it perfectly: Jer 23:19 Behold, a whirlwind (hurricane) of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked. Jer 23:20 The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly. Thankfully God is not far off towards those who truly repent and look to seek Him: Jer 23:23 Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off? When we hear His Word preached in context, it has great effect, breaking the rocks of sin and heresy for our time regardless of how things look: Jer 23:29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? We need to get back with Whom to properly fear: Pro 16:6 By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil. And make our love not for $money$ and humanistic wisdom, but for wisdom that can come from God and Him alone! Pro 16:16 How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver! Pro 16:17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.
  10. Good movies you recommend

    Hey Debp, we liked the movie "Hatchi." There are folks here that named a number of movies they liked, have a look at this thread. I personally do not believe all mentioned where good. "Watched any GOOD movies lately?" https://www.worthychristianforums.com/topic/190227-watched-any-good-movies-lately/
  11. My Parents Said "I Do" 36 Years Ago

    Congrats KPaulG, not only towards your parents, but a number here that have mentioned their many years in marriage as well!
  12. The late great Dr. Walter Martin

    I've enjoyed Walter Martin's "Kingdom of the Cults" book for years as a reference, and have passed along a several copies. Recently acquired "Kingdom of the Occult" and an older copy of "Walter Marttin's Cults Reference Bible." All of these false religions will one day come together as one and serve the Antichrist. Funny thing seeing some of the same cultic mind think over the years synergistically working it's way into much of Christendom too.
  13. Fun visit to San Diego Botanical Gardens

    Thanks Jen for the walk through the CA Botanical Gardens! You have a great smile their too! Enjoyed all of the flowers, bamboo, bananas, artwork, animals and such that you posted. A couple of the funny thoughts I had on a few of them: Those singing tree men must have been serenading you as you were on the bench in front of them! And I noted when you had the green parrot on your arm, there was a man behind you in the photo with a "First Aid Supplies" kit! He was ready for ya if the bird went rogue!
  14. Muhammad or Jesus: The Prophet Like Unto Moses

    Thanks George. I was engaging a well informed Islamist a few days ago about this very issue, along with a number of other issues all the while continually pointing him to Christ for salvation! Later, I printed out this article in it's entirety and gave it to him, he seemed receptive and said he would read it. Praying for those "blind eyes" of his to see the Truth in Christ!
  15. Hey SemperFidelis07, praying for all involved. I feel your empathy for this woman with your having two daughters. The perpetrator went to trial, and was found guilty on this side of life and given 80 years for his heinous crime. Later, death by crates dropping on him that were likely intentionally dropped. That kind of street justice makes the one(s) that killed him a murderer before God. All that being said, all the imaginations you have towards his suffering, crying and being in pain is next to nothing if he faces God the Father without the forgiveness of Jesus Christ in his life. His troubles in that case are only just beginning for eternity in Hell. Heb 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Tragic as it was, I'm glad the woman involved was able to forgive him, as unforgiveness left to smolder becomes resentment, and with resentment comes spiritual prison bars for the individual, while the one it's towards rarely suffers. It takes Christ in our life to set us free from unforgiveness, and if left to smolder, resentment. Mat 6:14-15 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: (15) But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. The justice system worked to a great degree on this side of life with his 80 years imprisonment, thankful for that, as it is not always so. God's Justice for those without Christ, and those with Christ will be perfect. Both the lost and Christian will be judged. Praying for the victim is great, Lord knows I've prayed for a few. You might take it a step further, and pray for the perpetrator's family too. Likely they're all lost also. No need to pray for the dead guy, he's gone. Luke 13:5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Ultimately, I hope you find yourself back here again soon, good thought and prayer you had in the recent past: Quote: SemperFidelis07 "I pray that this "man"uses his time wisely to repent for what he did and come to You so that he may never destroy another girl's life ever again."
