  1. When you have strong family ties, that is such a blessing. Praise God! But when or if our parents leave before us to be with the Lord, it is good to have already found a relationship with God to see us through. In life, most times people will disappoint at some level, as each one of us has a carnal nature to contend with everyday. Just know that its not the people, its what nature is working in them more than the other, that makes them disappointing, hurtful or unclear. Please don't get into the habit of unforgivenss or hating humanity. Hate the sin, not the sinner. Praise God ! Gods nature is Pure, Loving, Protecting, Reliable and Clear. He can never disappoint us and is always there for us in good times as in bad.
  2. Yes i can see that we need to forgive and that this forgiveness does not have to include going back and becoming loving friends with someone who is not a christian and most likely will aim to hurt again, Yes in such case its best to keep a polite distance, but i believe part of forgiving is practicing God Love in us. It certainly not a natural thing to do in the flesh, it takes God working in our hearts to come to a place where the capacity of forgiveness begins to shine through in us. Matthew 5:43-48 Love Your Enemies 43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the [c]tax collectors do so? 48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect. Matthew 18:21-22 The Parable of the Unforgiving Servant 21 Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” 22 Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. Matthew 18:21-35 The Parable of the Unforgiving Servant 21 Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” 22 Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. 23 Therefore the kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. 24 And when he had begun to settle accounts, one was brought to him who owed him ten thousand talents. 25 But as he was not able to pay, his master commanded that he be sold, with his wife and children and all that he had, and that payment be made. 26 The servant therefore fell down before him, saying, ‘Master, have patience with me, and I will pay you all.’ 27 Then the master of that servant was moved with compassion, released him, and forgave him the debt. 28 “But that servant went out and found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii; and he laid hands on him and took him by the throat, saying, ‘Pay me what you owe!’ 29 So his fellow servant fell down at his feet and begged him, saying, ‘Have patience with me, and I will pay you all.’ 30 And he would not, but went and threw him into prison till he should pay the debt. 31 So when his fellow servants saw what had been done, they were very grieved, and came and told their master all that had been done. 32 Then his master, after he had called him, said to him, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you begged me. 33 Should you not also have had compassion on your fellow servant, just as I had pity on you?’ 34 And his master was angry, and delivered him to the torturers until he should pay all that was due to him. 35 “So My heavenly Father also will do to you if each of you, from his heart, does not forgive his brother his trespasses. ---------------- While we are still alive, God give us all the opportunity to grow closer to Him, once we die, are fate is sealed. God is always Love but He also is a fixed LAW SED LEX- that does not change but is eternal, everlasting. In 1 John, it explains things very clearly that no darkness can enter and be with God especially after we have died. God is Light and no darkness can come into His Light without the Blood of Christ Jesus as a covering over our sinful nature. scripture back this up also, that with that capacity of forgiveness coming in us from God, through the Holy Spirit of God working in our hearts, is a Goldy love and major ingredient, loving the sinner and not the sin. I think we need to show not only to unbelievers but also and especially to Christians who still are growing and need to be shown by more mature Christians, not only reproofing when needed, but also showing Godly love towards them so their hearts become receptive to receive Gods Love within them, and this Godly love includes the capacity to forgive. Yes unforgiveness brings on bitterness and bitterness can bring on a hardened heart and a hardened heart leads us away not closer to God. when one knows better , one does better. Virtue that is not tested is not virtue. Sometimes being an example of Gods love towards someone who is still learning is the best example we can give to our fellow brother or sister. So if we think and deem ourselves better (more mature) than another christian we see as still suffering and somewhat blind by whatever hurtful past trauma-sin- they may have experienced for them to have become what they are, we need to show them by example, by Godly christian example and love, not only condemnation but also Godly love and forgiveness.
  3. Sometimes we just have to just let go of what we see as unjust or other, as sometimes what we see of someone else may be of the minority in a majority grouping. At this point, pointing things that you see as unjust and even have proof of it being unjust is sometimes pointless in a majority grouping that do not see what you are seeing an with proof to back what you say up. So sometimes for peace sake, its just better to let it go, and let god take care of it, and continue to show loving kindness, as no christian is perfect, we all have room to grow, and most importantly, we all need to practice forgiveness, weather other christian do so or not, are selective to who they do it to or not, Christians who truly , and with sincerity of heart try to follow God know, know that we need to practice forgiveness, practice patience, and practice loving kindness despite not being understood even when we see something wrong happening right in front of us, that the majority don't seem to perceive.. I pray all those with sincerity of heart receive the warmth of God surrounding them close with His complete Love . Gods loves the sinner who has repented and turned his life over to Christ, and not selectively to a few but to ALL who seek Him with a true and pure heart, those, they are loved by Him. For He understands us all and our true intentions, and that's the most important thing about it all. To become a better christian, practicing forgiveness in all manner of hurt, is a stepping stone of growing closer to Him, Day by Day Amen. In Christ Jesus always; 1to3

    Meningitis

    So very sad to hear this news concerning another loss of aloved one of yours. Meningitis can be deadly even with medical care. Do not blame yourself, just learn that you cannot save the world right now. Right now you got to save yourself and what small family of yours remains. Think of Job, and how he was tested, how much he suffered but never gave up on God. that is what you need to concentrate on so that God keep being able to see you through. You end quoting Matthew 27:46. Yes, this Christ Jesus recited confirming bible prophecy being fulfilled. as you can see it was prophesied in psalms concerning our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus, Psalm 22 The Suffering, Praise, and Posterity of the Messiah To the Chief Musician. Set to [a]“The Deer of the Dawn.” A Psalm of David. 22 My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me? Why are You so far from helping Me, And from the words of My groaning? 2 O My God, I cry in the daytime, but You do not hear; And in the night season, and am not silent. 3 But You are holy, Enthroned in the praises of Israel. 4 Our fathers trusted in You; They trusted, and You delivered them. 5 They cried to You, and were delivered; They trusted in You, and were not ashamed. 6 But I am a worm, and no man; A reproach of men, and despised by the people. 7 All those who see Me ridicule Me; They [b]shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, 8 “He [c]trusted in the Lord, let Him rescue Him; Let Him deliver Him, since He delights in Him!” 9 But You are He who took Me out of the womb; You made Me trust while on My mother’s breasts. 10 I was cast upon You from birth. From My mother’s womb You have been My God. 11 Be not far from Me, For trouble is near; For there is none to help. 12 Many bulls have surrounded Me; Strong bulls of Bashan have encircled Me. 13 They [d]gape at Me with their mouths, Like a raging and roaring lion. 14 I am poured out like water, And all My bones are out of joint; My heart is like wax; It has melted [e]within Me. 15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd, And My tongue clings to My jaws; You have brought Me to the dust of death. 16 For dogs have surrounded Me; The congregation of the wicked has enclosed Me. They[f] pierced My hands and My feet; 17 I can count all My bones. They look and stare at Me. 18 They divide My garments among them, And for My clothing they cast lots. 19 But You, O Lord, do not be far from Me; O My Strength, hasten to help Me! 20 Deliver Me from the sword, My[g] precious life from the power of the dog. 21 Save Me from the lion’s mouth And from the horns of the wild oxen! You have answered Me. 22 I will declare Your name to My brethren; In the midst of the assembly I will praise You. 23 You who fear the Lord, praise Him! All you [h]descendants of Jacob, glorify Him, And fear Him, all you offspring of Israel! 24 For He has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; Nor has He hidden His face from Him; But when He cried to Him, He heard. 25 My praise shall be of You in the great assembly; I will pay My vows before those who fear Him. 26 The poor shall eat and be satisfied; Those who seek Him will praise the Lord. Let your heart live forever! 27 All the ends of the world Shall remember and turn to the Lord, And all the families of the [i]nations Shall worship before [j]You. 28 For the kingdom is the Lord’s, And He rules over the nations. 29 All the prosperous of the earth Shall eat and worship; All those who go down to the dust Shall bow before Him, Even he who cannot keep himself alive. 30 A posterity shall serve Him. It will be recounted of the Lord to the next generation, 31 They will come and declare His righteousness to a people who will be born, That He has done this. -------------------- Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, Amen. one day every kneww shall bow and confess Christ Jesus to be who he said He was. Philippians 2:10-30 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Light Bearers 12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; 13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. 14 Do all things without [a]complaining and disputing,[b] 15 that you may become blameless and [c]harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, 16 holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain. 17 Yes, and if I am being poured out as a drink offering on the sacrifice and service of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all. 18 For the same reason you also be glad and rejoice with me. Timothy Commended 19 But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you shortly, that I also may be encouraged when I know your [d]state. 20 For I have no one like-minded, who will sincerely care for your state. 21 For all seek their own, not the things which are of Christ Jesus. 22 But you know his proven character, that as a son with his father he served with me in the gospel. 23 Therefore I hope to send him at once, as soon as I see how it goes with me. 24 But I trust in the Lord that I myself shall also come shortly. Epaphroditus Praised 25 Yet I considered it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother, fellow worker, and fellow soldier, but your messenger and the one who ministered to my need; 26 since he was longing for you all, and was distressed because you had heard that he was sick. 27 For indeed he was sick almost unto death; but God had mercy on him, and not only on him but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow. 28 Therefore I sent him the more eagerly, that when you see him again you may rejoice, and I may be less sorrowful. 29 Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness, and hold such men in esteem; 30 because for the work of Christ he came close to death, [e]not regarding his life, to supply what was lacking in your service toward me. ------------------------- Do not give up Plavious; Stay strong in the Lord. Things are not easy for you and your family right now. Now you need to concentrate on survival for you ad your family. I would not advise you on taking new children in, especially if you are having enough of a hard time caring for what you do have. You need to use good common sense for the situation you are finding yourself in. Its hard to give advice from so far away as we do not know everything around your situation, and for one person like me to try and help you right now more than just writing is not possible and this leaves me and perhaps many reading this, feel quite helpless. For sure the only thing we can do is pray for you, and if someone reading this has in their heart a better idea to help you, i pray they come forward. But single donations from a person here will not be enough to help you chronic situation. I think you had a good idea of getting a passport to try and leave your country. I think you should try to keep that as a focused goal. The government situation that you are talking about will not change overnight, and you cannot overthrow it on your own and so in such a case if you are young and have the strength courage and energy, I would try to get out of that country. that is what the Jews tried to do and many others suffering the war time then in Hitler Germany. Many that survived those times , seeked to escape to other countries. but you have to make a plan before setting out to do such a thing and you have to be smart about it, ie, don't tell everybody your plan, use Godly common sense, and pray the Holy Spirit of God to guide you in ALL you do. You have to stay strong in the Lord for your survival and that of your existing family, try and protect what you do have, and please, do not make or bring in any more children at this time as that will only bring on more sorrow. Right now, you cannot save the world, you first have to secure your own life and get it to a manageable level before trying to help others. if you try to help so many others while you yourself are sinking, you will all sink. So for now, you must think to survive yourself. Please be of good courage, cry , it will let thing come out, that need release. Their are different chemicals in tears and sometimes grief needs to be expelled by tears as their are toxins in tears that come from sorrow that need to come out of the body, so to keep you strong. so cry and cry with God by your side, He is there by your side Plavious, He loves you and He will bring to you solutions, just don't ever give up looking to Him for direction. God will give you direction in your situation. Hug you wife if you still have a wife, hug your remaining son, if he is still with you and bring them into prayer with you to God. Here on my side I am keeping you in prayer, that God keep close to you and you keep close to God. In Christ Jesus Always; 1to3
  5. Hi shel, I just found this article, maybe of interest ? https://www.rd.com/health/healthcare/pharmacist-wont-tell-you/
  6. Gods Word says to put our faith in God over man as He knows the truth and the right answer .
  7. Cars, wheels and options...and consequences...
  8. One way to find the truest answer, is to question your heart. Would your own conscience feel good about using marijuana just before partaking in the Lords super? where we are to examine our conscience , confessing anything bothering our conscience and wanting to come clean with with God before partaking in the taking the bread and drinking the grape juice in remembrance of what Christ did for us on Calvary. Your conscience if it is truly geared towards Christ Jesus should bring to your heart a clear answer. 1 Corinthians 11:17-34 Conduct at the Lord’s Supper 17 Now in giving these instructions I do not praise you, since you come together not for the better but for the worse. 18 For first of all, when you come together as a church, I hear that there are divisions among you, and in part I believe it. 19 For there must also be factions among you, that those who are approved may be [a]recognized among you. 20 Therefore when you come together in one place, it is not to eat the Lord’s Supper. 21 For in eating, each one takes his own supper ahead of others; and one is hungry and another is drunk. 22 What! Do you not have houses to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God and shame [b]those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you in this? I do not praise you. Institution of the Lord’s Supper 23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, [c]“Take, eat; this is My body which is [d]broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” 25 In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes. Examine Yourself 27 Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and [e]blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.
  9. Not only the above mentioned, but her lifestyle is quite telling. i have seen some pictures of stuff that she has bought and collects that go very contrary to following Gods Word. I would have to dig up the video that shows that (and i just don't have the time), but if you do, you can research and find for yourself., but for now here is a video that shows how she sets up her stage and the clothes shes wears and the symbolism involved. her and the likes of Kenneth Copland -beware-, they are of the same feather Here is a video title you can find on you tube.

  13. Dear shortangel; I am so sorry for the loss of your dog Caspian. I have pets of my own and know , its never easy having to say goodbye to any one of them. Proverbs12:10 A righteous man regards the life of his animals,but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel. Proverbs 27:23 Be diligent to know the state of your flocks and attend to your herds Job 12:7 But now ask the beasts, and they will teach you;And the birds of the air, and they will tell you Genesis 1:20-25 20 Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.” 21 So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 23 So the evening and the morning were the fifth day. 24 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. God Loves animals, God breathed life into them.Psalm150:6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord! Psalm 50:10-11 For every beast of the forest is Mine,And the cattle on a thousand hills. I know all the birds of the mountains,And the wild beast of the field are MINE. So let it comfort you that God knows your dog Caspian and loves him very much as well . I would like to add what others may scoff at, but I believe your animal is back with God. If people would read more the scriptures, they would understand that in heaven there will be animals. If there is grass and flowers, and tress, why would God omit animals. Makes no sense that He would not as they are part of his living and breathing creation. I feel sad with you, as I can appreciate what you are going through at the moment. I had to go through with this last year at this time with one of my pets, and now i am caring for my beloved elderly dog and I know the pain, that will befall me when I will have to say goodbye to my own beloved dog. We feel for our pets when they are sick and dying but God is there to comfort you and rest assured that your dog Caspian is now in peace and suffering no longer. Big hugs to you . In Christ Jesus always;1to3 In everything there is a season...
