  1. And thanks for letting me know of your viewing experience. I too enjoyed, actually more than enjoyed but at the moment lack the vocabulary necessary to properly express the experience of seeing once again Zola's sharing ministry to me and to all that that our Lord will have hear and see it to our benefit.
  2. Seems a badly flawed presumption once reads the word of God the Bible.
  3. I am not made by "inconsistencies" now and I won't be in my spiritual body either. I am made perfect in the sight of God by the shed blood of Jesus, now and forever forward throughout eternity to come through time after time itself. I am washed white as snow, acceptable to God the Father who cannot abide imperfection. The failures the flaws the short falls all covered fully by the sacrifice already made by Jesus.
  4. Sorry and saddened to read that anyone, anyone at all, may become so easily tortured. May many be given strength to overcome the tortures of Satan's minions that distract them from understanding the privilege before them so easily obtained as a gift, leading any man so distracted instead seeking man's speculative reasoning as to the how and why of it. Salvation is not a process to be defined and proved by man. It is the power of awesome God breathed out as God wills when God wills for reasons that please God. It needs no work of man whatsoever, and no explanation. It simply is. Man's definitions and theories not withstanding. God needs no man's description of how he does what He does, as though man might then be able to duplicate God's will and therefore prove God. God has already responded to man's demand for signs and reasons and methods. He gave the sign of Jonah. Salvation is not known through man's speculations and theories, nor by scientific methodology, but by faith alone, enabled by the conviction of God the Holy Spirit alone, with repentance from sin against God coming as result of the work of the agency of The Holy Spirit. Each person who is so indwelled by the Holy Spirit may know Jesus as Lord God and personal savior. Each person saved has been saved by the willing sacrifice of Jesus on the cross at Calvary. To know the happy result of God's mercy and grace is such wondrous privilege for all that are called specifically by the Holy Spirit to accept Jesus as Lord, no knowledge of the theories of man required, even the humblest of little children may hear, heed, and know their Lord Jesus. He is risen. He is risen indeed. May all have a most blessed day this resurrection Sunday.
  5. Thank you for gathering with me in praise of our risen Lord by way of your poem on this day.
  6. "To infinity and beyond!" "Bye Grandma, 'to infinity and beyond.' " The words from the Movie Toy Story by the character Buzz Lightyear "To infinity and beyond" were the words my then three year old grandson called out to his grandma as his last words to her at hospice the evening she graduated from this place and passed on. So it, to infinity and beyond, can also be the understanding of things as a little child knows of them, putting cartoon movie and toy together with the harsh reality of life that is temporarily in the flesh. It is the thought that is still with me some years later too. Didn't need quantum mechanics, physics knowledge, to hear and feel affirmation of the message of life's eternal existence beyond the corruptible body of flesh's time and the continuation and then renewal in a new body a spiritual one, the gospel of Jesus. It was faith like a child has that was confirming and comforting at a time of harsh reality unfolding upon adult and child alike. "He is risen", and the Christian's response "He is risen indeed" has the message of hope that is certain, with or without any knowledge of physics. Faith is more secure than sight. While it may be quantified as in the weak and sometimes failing faith of mankind, it is also the faith of Jesus that secures all of humanity that is foreknown, predestined and named by God the Father, and Given to God the Son our Lord Jesus with the Son Jesus losing not a one. Like all things known and experienced and provable by repetition's consistency, there is certainty in hope in the Lord Jesus and His gospel. "I am the way the truth and the life no one comes to the Father except through me." -Jesus Those hearing and heeding those words are also given the Holy Spirit within them. The Comforter the restrainer, the certainty in this flesh of the hope that is certain in the faith of Christ Jesus who has gone to prepare a place for us that believe on Him and Him alone for our eternal salvation to life eternal with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Praise God, giving thanks in all things, and especially the shoutouts by little children in their childlike faith wiser than the educated guesses of men making repeatable models to explain what is really is. Hope is certain, more certain than models by men for hope in Christ Jesus places the Holy Spirit within. ..." Since we have such a hope, we are very bold, not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze at the outcome of what was being brought to an end. But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts. But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit." - from 2 Corinthians 3 Praise God giving thanks in all things, "To infinity and beyond".
  7. Hi, Hard rule? Don't think so, but there is admonition given, from which I find that I think I should be praising God and acknowledging His authority, requesting His presence, as well as seeking my need for this day as I ask for forgiveness of my sins while forgiving others and hoping to not be a trespasser upon the needs of others, and requesting guidance that I not be tempted. I do not do this as a step by step rote thing, but more as an attitude from which to work out my conversation with my God my master my creator, while giving thanks for, and in, all things To say "in Jesus' name"- I do that, but not always. It is just a reminder of whom I have as my constant intercessor before God the Father. I also give my thanks to God the Holy Spirit as well as my creator Jesus. From Luke 11 -“When you pray, say: “Father, hallowed be your name. ( Praise and respect) Your kingdom come. ( Desire for return of Christ and the kingdom to soon come) Give us each day our daily bread, ( acknowledgement of who feeds my need) and forgive us our sins,( acknowledgement of my sin and my need of continuing sanctification) for we ourselves forgive everyone who is indebted to us. ( Releasing my concerns to God for his judgement not mine) And lead us not into temptation. ( request for guidance in all things i do )”
  8. He is risen! He is risen indeed!
  9. DIFFERENCES BETWEEN PETER AND PAUL Weren't they two nuts put on on a snickers bar? And, they called them "Peter & Paul Mounds".
  10. Thank you for posting. You are much blessed. The rendition brought tears to my eyes.
  11. It beats going hungry and doing without good water to drink by far. Our present bodies are not going to last anyway, each one of them is going to fail. Yet it is nice to have healthy ones well fed ones that flourish while they are in use. Seems we would all be foraging and gathering all as half starved nomads if we did not have the benefit of radically improved methods of crop planning. Not much has been "natural" since God ripped the life out of a living creature to provide cover for the sin of Adam and Eve. The crop is in the fields white and ready for harvest and the workers are few today. Best to focus on the gathering of the crop that is white in the fields ready for the message of eternal life with God than to be concerned about the flesh's treats of the day since the treats are plentiful for most of the modern world, but the workers for the gospel of Jesus few. The the foragers of lands living on what is "natural" have great famine and suffering as their daily companion. Why would we want to enforce that upon ourselves? Aren't we better servants of our Lord Jesus if we help the half starving foragers find clean pure water and better food cropping systems than we all might be if we join them in living their hardship eating only what is natural and found by foraging?
  12. "Can women teach men outside of church?" Every time I read this thread title I am tempted to respond, "Sure but can we learn?" Tempted, but I won't do it.
  13. Do not limit yourself to the standards of others, never accept limits placed upon you by "experts". Never stop educating yourself. My own IQ was first recorded as 128, that number didn't help me a bit. I failed foreign language, took French 1 four times. I was a failure according to college entry requirements of the time. Didn't matter God led me to a wife to be and to a career that required a specialty school education which I aced and then passed with high percentile scores two board exams one state and one national. I then attended community colleges for many years taking courses that interested me ( Law Advertising Marketing Photography ) did that for over fifteen years. Then learned the hospitality industry and also construction obtaining a State contractors license and investing. I have had six distinct careers and have found in each a chance to be of good service to others and to support myself and my family. The point in sharing of that is to emphasize do not let others set limits on you. Accept nothing less than what you want to accomplish as your goal for the day, each and every day. Life is a long process, do not let anyone set limits upon your day nor your future days. Important for you; Read the book "Finish First Winning Changes Everything" by Scott Hamilton!!!
  14. I have posted Bob Dylan's presentation of His In The Garden at Christian Videos for moderator approval. It is a live performance. It is rock for sure. I do enjoy the experience that is Bob Dylan as it relates to the life struggles of most of us. I did not appreciate him early on, but later on in my own life discovered his "personality" with much interest. If the performance is too much for some there is a quieter smoother studio version complete with depictions of what is being sung about on youtube as well.
