  1. Billy Graham said that God is calling a people to Himself out of every religion in the world. Not that all religions lead to God. It's funny how the devil twists his words and a lot of Christian's (especially the one's who think they have extra discernment) actually lack discernment and are doing the work of the devil without even realizing. If you think of yourself as something extra special and especially strong in the Lord maybe you should think again. The meek shall confound the wise. And just so you know Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus and people of other faiths are being saved everyday. Of course then they become ex Muslims but that was what Billy Graham was saying. Shame on you "wise" people.

    I'm going to kill myself in 2 weeks

    I have been suicidal a few times in my life. It was always a spiritual problem for me as I was running from God and into sin and sin was feeding my depression. Since I got saved I still get depressed at times, sometimes I get discouraged. If I focus on all the bad going on in the world I can get pretty down but if I focus on the Lord and His soon return that gives me hope so I really have to learn to focus on what's right, true and lovely. Easier said than done but I'm spending more time in God's Word and meditating on His Word and learning to trust Him. When you are saved the Lord will allow trials in your life to grow you up in Him and teach you to trust Him. If you learn to respond correctly you grow in the Lord and walk with the Lord and have an awesome relationship with Him just like Job, Noah, Moses and David and plenty others in the Bible who went through tough times even to the point of despising their life. But they held on and the Lord brought them through it and He will bring you through it too. I'm praying for you πŸ’œ

    WHAT IS THE FALLING AWAY

    You don't need the Lord to "enlighten" you in the scriptures so that you can suddenly understand why the Lord sends some babies to hell. The fact is that there will be zero babies in hell and if you suddenly become"enlightened" and the scriptures began saying that unclean babies are in hell please believe you have a spirit of deception hanging around you "enlightening" you. I'm sorry but that really upset me. That's a very disturbing teaching/belief.

    Dealing with vices: Smoking, drinking, and others.

    I was at one time enslaved to many, many things. When I surrendered my life to the Lord He set me free from these things. I wish I could say all at one time but it was actually slowly, possibly more slowly because of my fear of letting go of some vices I'd used for years to cope. I was a cross addicted drug addict, which means I was addicted to two different types of drugs. Once the Lord set me free from one I felt reluctant to let go of the other. Reluctant but yet I wanted to do the Lord's will so I moved forward and let go of the other drug as well. After that it was on to the cigarettes and that was very difficult. I had used those since I was 12 to cope. I began coping with my mom abusing me by smoking cigarettes so once I put those down the unresolved hurts from being abused we're still there waiting to be dealt with. And so I found that underneath all of that other bondage was emotional bondage and the Lord is in the process of healing me from all of that. He has brought me such a long way. Hard to believe that 4 years ago I weighed 100 lbs and was almost dead from drug abuse and got on my knees with my Bible and repented and He has given me a new life and restored my relationships, healed so much of my broken heart. It's just hard to believe I am that same person, the Lord has worked such miracles in my life. Thank You JesusπŸ’œβœπŸ’œ

    The New Animal thread

    I'm housesitting for a friend and her cat likes to watch Charles Stanley sermons with me. I think it's cute 😊
  6. Well we've had biblical flooding all over the US in the past couple of years. Earthquakes, floods and wildfires are increasing worldwide. Seems like the birth pains are about to turn into full force labor. I'm amazed by how many christians there are that don't recognize what time it is.

    FALSE TEACHERS? "In this I rejoice....!!!!"

    I know that I'm well over a year late responding to this topic but better late than never. I think what a lot of people fail to understand and why they are deceived by false teacher's is because they get filled with joy and peace during a sermon and lacking discernment automatically think those feelings came from God, not understanding that Satan and his demons can mimic all those feelings. Spiritual discernment is so important, we are in the end times. Most preacher's on tbn are infact false preachers. Always, always, always pray for discernment and ask God is this preacher or teacher from Him. Do not blindly watch every preacher you see on TV. That is a dangerous, dangerous game. I've learned discernment the hard way and it's a very serious thing God's people need more of. Please pray for it. 1 John 4:1 [1]Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
