    -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. A number of the Proverbs "stand alone." Here's a proverbial question for all. It can be presented as a question towards the Jews also, pointing them towards them towards their Messiah, Jesus Christ: Proverbs 30:4 Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell? That being said, I often preach a verse of Scripture should be read like good 20/20 eyesight. Take one verse, and read 20 verses before that verse, and 20 verses after that verse, and we generally have a real good idea as to what God is presenting us as we look to rightly divide His Word. Many fallacies can be done away with in reading in this fashion. Another stand alone verse that applies towards us all as Christians concerning His Word. : 2Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. In a bit deeper context however, we can also see in doing the above with just 4 verses prior and 4 verses after this verse: We are assured of living with Him after death, in suffering for Him, we reign. If we deny Him, he will deny us. We are told to remember His Word, and not bother with words that profit nothing and actually go on to subvert (destroy, morally corrupt) those who listen to them. In studying, we find we will not be ashamed, and learn to rightly divide His Truth. In so doing, we learn to shun the many profane babblings in our day just as in the past, that if adhered to will increase more ungodliness and spread like canker (gangrene, disease.) When a profane heretical babbler is noted, expose him by name, lest he go on to overthrow the faith of some in the flock. The foundation of God stands sure, God knows who are his. And those of us name Christ are to depart from iniquity. (Sin.) 2Timothy 2:11-19 It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: (12) If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: (13) If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself. (14) Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers. (15) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (16) But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. (17) And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; (18) Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some. (19) Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
  2. Hi OO, I'm thankful for all who have paid the ultimate price to preserve freedom in our nations history this Memorial Day. The photo you have posted is Mary McHugh in front of her late fiance Sergeant James J. Regan's tombstone in the Arlington National Cemetery. It was taken Memorial Day weekend 2007: http://www.arlingtoncemetery.net/jjregan.htm A few portions from James James Reagan's Memorial page: "Sergeant James J. Regan, 26, of Manhasset, New York, died February 9, 2007, in northern Iraq of wounds suffered when an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle while on combat patrol.Regan was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, Fort Benning, Georgia." ------- "Photog Discusses Widely Seen Picture of Woman at Grave of Her Soldier Fiance Published: May 31, 2007 NEW YORK Getty Images photographer John Moore discussed his memorable picture of a grieving Iraq War fiancee in a blog post yesterday. The photo -- widely published in newspapers -- showed a distraught Mary McHugh lying on her stomach in front of the grave of her late fiance, James Regan, who was killed in Iraq this February by a roadside bomb. The picture was taken at Arlington National Cemetery during Memorial Day weekend. "She sat in front of the grave..., talking to the stone," wrote Moore, who has been a photojournalist in Iraq and Afghanistan during the past five years. "She spoke in broken sentences between sobs, gesturing with her hands, sometimes pausing as if she was trying to explain, with so much left needed to say. ... "Clearly, she had not only loved him but truly admired him. When he graduated from Duke, he decided to enlist in the Army to serve his country. He chose not to be an officer, though he could have been, because he didn't want to risk a desk job. Instead, he became an Army Ranger and was sent twice to Aghanistan and Iraq -- an incredible four deployments in just three years." Moore concluded: "Some people feel the photo I took at the moment was too intimate, too personal. Like many who have seen the picture, I felt overwhelmed by her grief, and moved by the love she felt for her fallen sweetheart. "After so much time covering these wars, I have some difficult memories and have seen some of the worst a person can see -- so much hatred and rage, so much despair and sadness. All that destruction, so much killing. And now, one beautiful and terribly sad spring afternoon amongst the rows and rows of marble stones -- a young woman's lost love. "I felt I owed the Arlington National Cemetery a little time -- and I think I still do. Maybe we all do."
  3. On reading: The Bible daily! Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. I'm also currently about 1/3rd of the way through "Cosmos - Creator and Human Destiny: Answering Darwin, Dawkins, and the New Atheist" by Dave Hunt. Thus far, I have enjoyed it. It covers what many of what the Evolutionist have had to say over the years, and the real answers founded on God's Word that our Creator has in place of their many unfounded pseudo science speculations.
  4. True that Kwikphilly! Just now thinking on a woman who has wrecked cars 3 times as a result of her texting while driving! It's a miracle she's still alive! I've prayerfully gave her the Gospel in the past! Wondering at this point if she is still behind the wheel of that fourth car???
  5. I see this is a bit of an older post, none the less: Amen! All that we are tempted with is common to all of mankind. In Christ as we grow, God will always show us a way out no matter how great that temptation is! However, we must take the way of escape He shows us! I would add along with prayer, in the strength of the Holy Spirit stand on the promises God has made for us in His glorious Word! 1Co 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. As Christians, keep God as our first love, and continue to grow in Him! Mar 12:29-31 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. May we all learn to build up our minds with the Word and draw on His Truths for for every circumstance in life! 1Pe 1:13-14 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:
  6. After some time, Snow's buddy came swimming over this way, I saw em in a much earlier post. Dolphin! Dolphin!! Everybody out of the water!!! There was actually several of them, as they briefly surface, they quickly go back under. I had several of "just the water" trying to get one.
  7. The "crux" of the matter as mentioned by two others. Babies go to heaven! King David is now in heaven with his firstborn that died. The same applies to ALL babies, born that die after a short time, or murdered in the womb by the sin of abortion: 2Samual 12:23 But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me. "Knower" Standing in with those three questions presented by Omega and wondering the same, Quote: "How about you, Knower? Are you aware of your sinfulness? Have you sought forgiveness from God, through His Son, Jesus Christ?" Repent, and believe on the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ,and Him alone for the forgiveness of your sins! Mark 1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. Romans 10:8-13 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; (9) That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. (10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (11) For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. (12) For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. (13) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary: (in part) Repent 1. To feel pain, sorrow or regret for something done or spoken; as, to repent that we have lost much time in idleness or sensual pleasure; to repent that we have injured or wounded the feelings of a friend. A person repents only of what he himself has done or said. 2. To express sorrow for something past. Enobarbus did before thy face repent. 3. To change the mind in consequence of the inconvenience or injury done by past conduct. Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return. Exo 13. 4. Applied to the Supreme Being, to change the course of providential dealings. Gen 6. Psa 106. 5. In theology, to sorrow or be pained for sin, as a violation of God's holy law, a dishonor to his character and government, and the foulest ingratitude to a Being of infinite benevolence. Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Luke 13. Acts 3.

  9. Behold, Enjoyed many of the beautiful wood colors, grains, variations on your guitars! It's awesome to see all of God's creativity harvested and spread forth on musical instruments for all of the world to see. We have a place that sells granite not far from here with many variegated patterns and beautiful colors. In looking it over one day my thoughts were that they take out a piece of God's mountain, sand and buff it down to a shine for all to see across a countertop in a home somewhere. Yet many of these same folks never even think of God's creativity that they see daily when it's in place. Should I get over that way, I'll take take a few pictures and post. Along with your pictures, and so many other here, all folks KNOW there is a Creator! Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
  10. Hi Shel, your picture does appear to be an azalea. Most azaleas have little or no smell, however some do have a mild pleasant scent. Our orchid azalea here has a mild sweet fragrance.
  11. I like these clouds better!
  12. Spraying clouds? An hour prior to this they were only small jets streams.
  13. Thank God for understanding moms!
  14. Sounds interesting Fidei Defensor, thanks for posting. I'd like to see the movie! Living Waters had this mention: "POLYCARP is a God-honoring, Christ-centered, and moving story that will make you want to run with the divine message, while we still have the God-given liberty." -Ray Comfort, evangelist and author Answers in Genesis had this to say of it: "Through the eyes of 12-year-old Anna, this historically accurate drama presents the account of the martyrdom of Bishop Polycarp. When Anna is freed from slavery by the bishop and adopted into his family, she is taught about the one true God in the midst of Roman traditions. This award-winning family film challenges Christians to stand boldly on the gospel in the face of persecution." "I believe every Christian needs to be challenged by this film. Based on real history and real Christians suffering real persecution, it s a message we all need to be reminded of. Christian persecution is already happening in America and it s going to increase if things continue as they are. How would we compare to such a man as Polycarp?" -Ken Ham, president, AIG
