    -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. Snip: "...When I went to college, I was feeling like homosexuality was my core identity. I just knew that Christianity was never an option for me. Not ever. I just thought I'm a gay man, I can't ever be Christian. Never the twain shall meet. ...I just put God even further on the back burner, and didn't even think of God at all."

    I would love to set up a tent there for a few days! Beautiful pics Shel! My wife recently enjoyed "Pumpkin Spice" Special K. Those guys are going to town on different flavors!

    A favorite Petra ballard of mine from years gone by. Had my son listen to this song. In comparing with much of what his generation now listens to, he thought the Biblical depth to much deeper than what is generally heard today.
  4. Good Friday/Resurrection Tracts

    I've had a few tracts printed over the years with local printers, and occasionally printed some off of my printer and cut them up. But none pertaining to Easter specifically. You've got me thinking though! I do however use a number of Christian tract companies in my reaching out to the lost as I share the Gospel in the streets. This is one I've passed out during this time of the year: The Empty Tomb https://www.chick.com/m/reading/tracts/readtract.asp?stk=0295 This is another Tract ministry that works with custom Christian Tract ideas, for folks that have some thoughts for a good one: http://www.gospeltract.org/custom.html Away with the non-existent bunny that lays eggs!! Let us preach Christ and His resurrection this time of the year, and all the year! Be reaching out to and praying for our lost family members, acquaintances, co-workers, the lost in general! It's been my experience as I reach out to the lost, that folks are often more receptive during this time of year, and Christmas, than any of the other holidays. Although I enjoy reaching out to them all year long! And in doing so, I'll often follow up with a Christian tract. And when there is no time to verbally mention His glorious Gospel, such as at a cash register, I'll simply pass a tract along, and mention "check this out on break later on." Hope to see some in the Kingdom!

    Normally 40s, 50s for us this time of year, a sunrise from behind shining on our trees on the 3rd day of Spring. Forsythias looked great the day before! Snow has them wilted a bit here! Part of a nearby trail on the 3rd day of Spring. I enjoy the beauty of God's creation!

    Intricate and cool looking vial. A lot of detail for this 3/4" bottle. Looks like dark colbolt blue with silver and birds lifting off at the top. Does it have a specific function? The "Special K" box for the backdrop gives the illusion the vial is bigger. I had a bowl of Special K this morning.The Special K flavor I had was "Blueberry with Lemon Clusters." Sounded weird, but I had to try it. Better than expected!

    Hello Shel! Liked your pictures, good to see you again!
  8. The Rich Man and Lazarus

    It took a few liberties, but did a good job on capturing the essence of (what I believe to be) a real story! Luke 16:19-31 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: (20) And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, (21) And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. (22) And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; (23) And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. (24) And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. (25) But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. (26) And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. (27) Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house: (28) For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. (29) Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. (30) And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. (31) And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead. @Yowm Similar in thinking to the Youtuber you quoted, a partial quote from the "Summarized Bible:" "Prosperity is not a mark of being a favorite of heaven, nor poverty a mark of God’s rejection of a man. Salvation is appropriated by those only who accept the evidence of God’s Word during their lifetime, and, having died outside of Christ, there is no ray of hope eternally." -Summarized Bible, Keith Brooks
  9. The U.S. seemingly taking a "neutral " position, while offering suggestions for both sides. Should be interesting to see how it goes. From the article: "...According to the report, the officials said the plan does not have a set of guiding principles. It gives the outlines of a peace plan and leaves the Israelis and the Palestinians to fill in the details. Also, they said, the plan also does not specifically call for a two-state solution as a goal nor for a “fair and just solution” for Palestinian refugees, though it will offer suggestions on both points."
  10. Prayer and fasting was a large part of our Lord Jesus Christ's life when he walked amongst us as fully God and fully man. When the disciples could not cast the demonic demon of lunacy out of a mans son, he appealed to Jesus Christ who rebuked the devil, and it departed him. He went on to let them know it was because of their unbelief, and gave them a short but wonderful lesson in faith. Followed by letting them and us know that particular demonic demon does not leave but by prayer and fasting. Along with not much today being taught on fasting, equally we hear little on Satan's kingdom of demons, that Christ has given us authority over if called on to do so. Mat 17:15-21 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. (16) And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. (17) Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me. (18) And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. (19) Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? (20) And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. (21) Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting. In today's world, I believe many in so called "Lunatic Asylums" (now called "Psychiatric hospitals") are people that are demonically possessed and looking for treatment through unsaved men with there ungodly techniques. It's as if many that are possessed there are given names for their "problems," and are often prescribed a lot of drugs, occasionally electric-shock therapy that induces convulsions, or lobotomies, which involves removing parts of the brain... Problems that Jesus Christ Himself can set them free of. Years ago, I knew an older brother in the Lord that had depression. Towards the end of his days, he opted to believe what worldly humanistic Psychiatrists men were telling him, instead of standing fast on Christ and His Word. They got him into one of these places, and performed a "prefrontal lobotomy." He was never himself again. His last words to me were done with with a huge lost smile on his face, as he asked; "Do I know you?" It sorrows me to this day.
  11. I'm going to kill myself in 2 weeks

    His profile says he was here 2 hours ago. Continued prayers for him as well!
  12. Friend had a heart attack

    After a few surgeries, looks like he is going to live, they had pulled off 2 of the 3 machines they had him hooked up to before we got there. Still pretty "wired" up though. He was in an extremely groggy state, but was glad to see us. Some re-hab to follow soon. Thanks for the prayers! Gave his multiple doctors, nurses, and helpers Christian tracts too as they came in to check up on him. Left a "FullyFreeFilms" card on his Doctor board for those I did not meet. Along the way to and from the hospital, enjoyed sharing the Gospel briefly with a few, including picking up a homeless woman that needed a ride. She said she was a Christian, and mentioned 4 children of hers that were in various places. She went on to speak of a very lopsided "love only" version of God that was not in any way Scriptural. My wife and I gave gave her some balanced verses as to the false god she was serving. She went on to imply all religions go the the same place. All of us here that are the Lord's know otherwise. Gave her a few Christian tracts when we dropped her off, she mentioned she would be sleeping in a nearby graveyard. As temps were going to be in the 20s, I mentioned 2 shelters nearby. She knew them well, and was not interested in going. Please pray for the Salvation of her and her children as well.
  13. Friend had a heart attack

    Hi All. Have a brother in the Lord who had a heart attack recently. He's struggling to live at this point in the hospital as other multiple complications were found out after testing. Not sure if he is going to live. Asking for prayers for him to keep his eyes on Christ, find peace in Him, and for his health during this difficult time. Heading out today to encourage him. I'll also be looking to reach out with our Lord's glorious Gospel along the way, both verbally and with Christian tracts. Thanks for praying.
  14. I'm going to kill myself in 2 weeks

    The enemy of all mankind's mission is to steal, kill, and destroy. The Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ died for your sins that you might have life. Not only in this world, but an eternity in the next in heaven. Suffering for an eternity in Hell is one suffering none can remove once there, it's truly a terrible place. Please do consider repenting, and believing on the only One who can forgive you, Jesus Christ, God the Son who gave His life on the cross FOR YOU. Along with others here, our family praying for you Worth! John 10:10-11 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (11) I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
  15. THE EXHORTATION THREAD (For Christians Who Love Jesus)

    Prayerfully spoke to a half a dozen people today of the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ! And passed out a few Christian tracts in English and Spanish. Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. As Christians, may we all look to be glorifying God in our varied gifts in His One Body! 1Co 12:12-14 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. (13) For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. (14) For the body is not one member, but many.
