  1. "But what if...."

    Stand on The Word of God. God dont lie. Scripture is God Breathed. If God said it, it is so. its very important to know scripture. Faith fact and feeling. Three men were walking on a wall, Feeling, Faith, and Fact. When Feeling took an awful fall and Faith was taken back. So close was Faith to Feeling that he stumbled and fell too. But Fact remained and pulled up Faith, and Faith brought Feeling too.
  2. HOW do you think you will be taken by Christ?

    the bible tells us that tomorrow is not promised. A parable speaks on a fella building bigger barns and growing more food so he could say he is satisfied and has want for nothing.... But God said thou fool your soul is required of thee this very night. The bible tells us not to even say tomorrow we will do this or that but to say if The Lord Wills. We do not know anything about tomorrow, except Jesus will still be on the throne. (can i get an Amen!) I do not think i will make it that long. (i am post tribber) My concern is not getting raptured.... my concern is LIVING and WALKING how God says to. My concern and prayer is that God will lead and guide me to be in His will but also that my life will be pleasing to Him, and He will be pleased. A sweet aroma, if you will. IF i live so long as to be caught up in the clouds straightway from this corrupt flesh body i currently dwell in, then Praise God. If not, then oh well, Praise God.
  3. I know some catholic folks that i know are saved. this one lady stands in front of planned parent hood and holds up signs of what kinds of horrors they do there and prays against this place. you can feel the Holy Ghost all around her. she is catholic. another good friend of mine and his wife are catholic. they are saved. but the thing is, God dont care to much for religion. James 1:27 27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
  4. How can a person be TRULY saved in this situation

    when i was apprehended and when God used me to speak and pray with someone so He could save them, or even when a minister prayed with someone and they received Jesus and i walked in the room seconds later.... there is a special and unique sweetness in the air. not like when you worship. or pray. you just know.
  5. God will punish me

    Ecclesiastes 5:5 Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. Romans 5: 20-21 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: 21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. As long as you have breath, if you choose to seek God with your whole heart, and make a stand to fight sin and pray for God to help you, God will help you. it may not be a poof its all better experience. but if your heart and mind is sincere and willing, So is God. Seek Him in prayer. Read the bible. You must get alone, by yourself and just pray. pray from your heart. do it everyday. set time aside. if you do this, you wonthave to struggle to believe. You will know God. Ask him to fill you with His Spirit.
  6. i am no psycologist but i dont think it matters if you listen to early or not. simply listening (at any time) can raise your blood pressure. unless its something like O Holy Night.
  7. And except those days should be shortened.

    I have always thought the actual day... from dawn to dark would be shortened. the word for days in the scripture... Mat 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. ... can mean literally dawn to dark or it can hold a slightly different meaning based on context. I dont think (i could be wrong) the duration of the tribulation will be cut short as a whole. Here is what i found in strongs... G2250 ἡμέρα hēmera hay-mer'-ah Feminine (with G5610 implied) of a derivative of ἧμαι hēmai (to sit; akin to the base of G1476) meaning tame, that is, gentle; day, that is, (literally) the time space between dawn and dark, or the whole 24 hours (but several days were usually reckoned by the Jews as inclusive of the parts of both extremes); figuratively a period (always defined more or less clearly by the context): - age, + alway, (mid-) day (by day, [-ly]), + for ever, judgment, (day) time, while, years. notice how it says with G5610 implied... that word means "hour"
  8. Babylon

    yea its wikipedia... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babylon_(village),_New_York
  9. oh thats a riot... sipping saints.... saints that sip. but thats not what i was talking about. i was illustrating the contrast between two different studies on "sipping" one says its healthy, one says you get cancer. Again.... Jesus' first miracle was turning water into wine. Did Jesus want to give people cancer?
  10. drinking city water can cause cancer. pollution in the air can cause cancer. decaf coffee causes cancer. the suns rays can cause cancer. truth is one day, you die. there are also studies that say one drink a day is good for you. whos the one fibbing? Jesus' first miracle was turning water into wine.
  11. Struggling Christian

    perfect in scripture means mature. things take time. Walk in The Spirit... read Galatians 5.
  12. Do you fast? Is God hearing your prayers?

    fasting is a way to humble yourself but you dont have to fast to humble yourself. The first time i fasted i decided on three days, water only. i read books on fasting on health and praying. I will say i did feel closer to God, however i was praying a whole lot more. I fell short of three days by a few hours. I remember it was bar b que chicken legs and broccoli i ate when i broke my fast. it was one of the best tasting meals i ever had. Gods presence was unchanged, very peaceful and joyful. eating is allowed. so really its a personal choice. I know one lady who loves chocolates. she fasts from eating chocolate. she says God honors that, and she is very close to God so i do not doubt her relationship. I have also fasted and prayed and my prayers were not answered. fasting is not a magical breakthru with God and our prayers. I believe God does take notice and that its precious to Him for us to deny what we need to live, and seek Him. But God looks at our heart. If God is not hearing your prayers, perhaps your heart is a good place to examine.
  13. Atheists that have turned to Christ

    I have known several atheists that had a close call with death. they all called on God. One was once a good friend of mine. he was mowing. the grass was wet from the sprinkler system. the back yard was a downward hill, to a ravine with at least a 90 foot drop. the tires on the ZTR mower lost traction on the wet grass and down he went... at neck break speed. He said outloud God help me! And isnt God good all the time??? the blade deck hung up right on the edge of the cliff. I helped him climb over the back of the mower and we tied a big rope to the roll bar to keep it from falling. when we tried to get the mower unstuck it wouldnt budge. God saved his life, even though after he laughed it off, and asked why would he say such a thing? edit: I never saw a genuine conversion, but when the fear of death rushes they call to Him.
