    A Testing I Can Only Just Survive

    This is such an awful thing to go through, personally I had been thinking that the rest of the business (divorce, sinning in the flesh, etc. insofar as the things he told you) were the legit things...but when I got to the cancer part, I had to kind of wonder at that one, but that's just me- and I'm certainly no expert on any of it, for sure. However...I can say this, having been through some pretty horrific things like this myself, that God is watching out for you, He really is. He's aware of your situation, He knows that your heart was genuine in your feelings and trust of this person, in other words, He knows the situation from beginning to end, and every detail of every feeling/emotion in it for both parties, you and him. I can also say this with the utmost confidence...having been through a really rough, rough time such as you're going through (not exactly the same, but pretty darned close...I won't go into detail, though- suffice it to say? I totally understand...) I know for a bonafide fact that God is faithful...and He is going to bring you through to something better that He has planned for you, even though you are devastated and can't hardly believe that anything good could come of your mistrust and devastation, and it most definitely doesn't feel like it now. You are on the road to where God is leading you and He is walking ahead of you, and even though the way seems dark, believe that He has your hand, and that He isn't going to lead you into a bad place. Frightening, and scary as it is? And believe me, I know....God is faithful, even when we don't understand (which seems to be most of the time, lol). Hang on to Him with everything you have. Proverbs 3: 5, 6 - Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and don't lean on your own understanding...acknowledge Him in all of your ways, and He WILL direct your path!

    Margaret McDonald prophecy

    Ok, I'll admit it...call me Debbie Downer, say I'm smacking everyone in the face with a wet fish (ew, haha!), but....Wikipedia? As a factual source?

    Watchman Nee's Understanding of the Rapture

    I have to admit I didn't even make it through the first post fully, lol- but that's ok- I'm only posting an opinion- The whole pre-trib/mid-trib/post-trib business is such a bone of contention among people- but, in all honesty....what does it really matter if it's pre/mid/or post? The main thing- the most important thing, is that we are ready whenever He does come back for us- be it pre/mid/post- the most disturbing thing I have found about the whole situation is that if....IF....the Lord chooses to wait until post, or even mid? Those who are of the pre notion are not going to expect it at all, and may find themselves at a complete loss as to what they should do- thinking they would be in Heaven, and away from all of the nastiness that would be coming on the earth during that time, and with a mindset that is completely unprepared to deal with it. My own personal stance on it is mid- but I was raised Assemblies of God, and pre was the definite order of things, lol- however...I could be wrong, wrong, wrong- it may be pre, it may be mid, it may very well be post- there are just loads of 'reasons' for each and every one of them, there really are. But to me, the most important thing of all is to be ready...and prepared...for whatever eventuality may occur, because it does say in the bible, "For you know not the day or the hour when the Son of Man cometh...".

    SO, YOU THINK YOUR'RE SMART?

    I looked up the business on two AI computers communicating with their own language, apparently it's not true and was just 'speculation', lol. It was supposedly Facebook it happened on.

    SO, YOU THINK YOUR'RE SMART?

    I would have to go search, but I read somewhere recently that...Yahoo? Google? Some Big Deal-type thing had to shut down two AI computers, because they discovered that they had created their own language, and were talking to each other!! How freaking scary is that, when you look at it in light of the other things that are being spoken of in this forum (and elsewhere?) I have to say, I've been reading up and watching this whole AI/genetic manipulation, splicing business for a while- and like Dennis, my end-time ideas have most definitely changed over time as I've watched things just...evolve, who would have ever thought? I can remember pre-personal PCs, and to see them come into daily use and the way that they have just taken leaps and bounds in technology is utterly breathtaking. My husband has two Master's in IT/Programming, lol- it isn't like I don't love the stupid things (what would I do on a really cold Saturday night if I didn't have this Mac, so I could be in here, chit-chatting with everyone? lol). Seriously, though...when you look at the possibilities with AI, it does answer a lot of questions that...30 years ago, weren't answerable- people could only venture a guess- same with the whole rDNA/splicing, etc. - it's almost like getting a glimpse at the side of the tapestry that isn't all tangled threads, you know? And it begins to make sense...and you're left to decide if that's a good thing, or a terrifying thing, lol.

    What did the rich young man lack?

    He loved money above all things. He was a good person, but...his love of money seemed to be the most important thing to him.

    Catholics and Demonic Infestation, etc.

    I remember reading a book once years ago about Amityville, and the family was Catholic (can't remember their names, the ones who left the house after a month because of all the things going on)...I also remember they were into Eastern meditation and things like that, as well, and I wondered if that sort of thing 'opened a door', so to speak to the other things that were going on- who knows, I just found it (over various stories I've heard/read about) to be so strange that it seemed to happen with Catholics so much- I have to be honest, and here is my disclaimer, lol: I mean no disrespect to anyone who is Catholic, this is just me, giving an opinion- but I always figured that either Catholicism was so 'spot on' that it was ferociously attacked by 'other worldly' things...or that there were so many doors open that it was pretty well fair game, you know? Also, it seems when there is an exorcism or blessing or whatever, 'mediums' are called in without a second thought, and they will generally go on about the various 'human' spirits haunting a place, along with the usual entities...now, maybe it's just me, but....I have always gone with the bible verse (again, I know the verse, can't recall where it is...) "To be absent from the body, is present with the Lord"...and I also think of....was it ...Saul (?) who went to the medium at Endor to have her bring up...either Nathan or Samuel, I'm probably getting the people all mixed up, lol- but also I'm thinking that human spirits don't 'come back'...and Christians don't (or at least they shouldn't, at any rate..) call in 'mediums', or 'channelers' to find out what is haunting a place. I've read various things on Catholicism and there seem to be an awful lot of rituals, etc.- I remember reading on a website about a 'saint' named..Gemma Galgani, I believe- I want to say she was in the early 1900s or thereabout...and I have to say, reading the various things she went through/saw/etc., I was extremely disturbed by it all and it left me with a very....geez, I don't know what else to say but disturbed and heavy feeling. Something is so not right, either that or I'm just not right, lol...and I do have to admit- I've been accused of being 'not right' plenty of times in my life, lol! Kidding....well, mostly- hahaha~

    AN IMPORTANT END-TIME MESSAGE TO THE SAINTS

    I saw this forum when it was just a few minutes old this morning...(I think it was this morning...lol)...I decided not to touch it. Still not gonna. LOL!

    Can everyone get saved by faith?

    I believe anyone can be saved by faith, and faith alone- because to do anything else to be 'saved', would be to save ourselves- and to negate what Jesus did at the cross. What He did was all that needed to be done, period, as the 'Author and Finisher of our faith'.

    What on earth is going on with the weather???

    I've been in the midwest for a few years, and today it's 1 with a 'feels like' of -29, lol. We have some snow on the ground, it's just nasty out there- I'm originally from California, and I have to say...there are days (and this is one of them, lol) where I sooooo miss that warm weather, and 50-some-odd degree winters!

    Science and Prophecy Merge

    Maybe not permanently, but there are those who are seriously working on extending life, merging humans with A.I., it's some seriously strange business- these aren't 'kooks', either- they are highly educated and respected individuals- go to Forbes dot com and look up "meet these incredible women advancing a.i. research" - There are many, many legit scientists, etc. who are working hard with rDNA searching for ways to extend life beyond the normal, expected 80 years or so. With things like this moving ahead at a rapid pace, who can say what sort of side effects could result from it? I mean, we're talking about synthetic DNA that has been..created, and coded according to the 'creator's' specification being added to human DNA, where once in the body it replicates...who can say what sort of things could happen with something like this? It isn't so hard to believe that somehow, changes to normal human DNA could result in the ability of not being able to terminate the 'host' somehow- there is just so much that we don't know, and we with our tiny little minds believe that if we can't explain it, or make sense of it, somehow, that it can't be possible. I can't help but think that we have a 'host of witnesses' watching the coming's and going's of man, and tittering to themselves at our naiveté, lol. Uriah, let me add this: the reason I am posting all of this in your forum is because of how deeply you seem to be delving, discovering things- I'm absolutely no sensationalist, you won't catch me reading The National Enquirer in line at the supermarket and believing everything, just because it's the written word. I cringe at the thought of being titillated, I'm not looking to be 'shocked' or 'thrilled' with the latest in...well, tinfoil-hat'ism. I've just been watching, and reading, and researching, and comparing...and I will be the first to admit I'm no genius, but I'm certainly no slouch, either. And honestly, I'm seeing some 'writing on the wall'.

    About the writings of Enoch

    Just because I refuse to traipse back up through all of the posts here, lol...but someone mentioned that the book of Enoch was not as old as some thought, but according to the New World Encyclopedia, fragments from 1 Enoch were found among the Dead Sea Scrolls at Qumran...

    About the writings of Enoch

    When I was around 8 years old, there was a neighbor boy who lived close by that I went to school with. He also attended the Mormon church a block away with his family, as did a close friend of mine and her large family. I went with my friend a few times, although at that time I attended an Assemblies of God church with my mom, and did so for years. Im non denom. now. Anyhoo...one day this boy I mentioned earlier and I were talking about church, or something...as kids do, and I dont remember the conversation at all its been so long ago, but I remember him looking at me and yelling at me in a redhaired rage (he was a freckled ginger lol) as he said, "All of the other religions are wrong, so God made Mormonism!", and I mean he was livid and just fit to be tied. Decades later, that has stuck with me, I think just for the fact that there was no room for anything, just...nothing. He didnt have to give proof, he didnt have to give a reason or even make sense...but by George, he was just adament. I never forgot him or his reaction, and I remember years later thinking to myself that it was people like him who probably burned at the stake those who dared to disagree, lol. I sense a little of that in this forum, lol. Let me state where I stand, not that it matters, lol...I believe that scripture is God given. I have no clue what the books of Enoch and Jasher are, other than they can be used as commentary in order to get a clearer picture of things back then. Im no pagan, not into mysticism or anything else, im a Christian who believes in what Jesus did at the cross, period. Im not looking to the other books to change my mind or anything else, and honestly, I dont think anyone else in here is looking for that, either. We want to understand what is coming in these end times, what should we expect, what happened in the days of noah that will be repeated in the last days, etc. Knowing the enemy is imperative if youre going to fight. And the bible says we wrestle not against flesh and blood... And be wise and post long things like this using a comp and not a stupid cell like I did, hahaha And as I edit this yet again, this time I came and turned on my computer specifically to type a lot faster and not go blind from the tiny keyboard in the process, hahaha! Ok, I would like to expound just a little bit, here....I'm reminded of where Paul (I think it was Paul) was talking about how there were things that he could do that were not sin, but if it caused others to sin, he wouldn't do it...and how some things that weren't necessarily 'wrong' but felt wrong to some, then for those people it really was sin. So...in saying that, if there are those who are completely uncomfortable with the idea of reading the books of Jasher and Enoch, etc.....then they shouldn't read it- as a commentary and not seeing it as 'gospel truth' (so to speak), for those who read it after much prayerful consideration, and who don't 'preach another gospel', then...the thing is, I would never...ever...try to lead someone or sway them in a direction that they weren't comfortable with, God forbid. The truth is, we're all on the same side- and we all need to remember that

    About the writings of Enoch

    It really is some pretty scary reading, lol- I have to be honest, I don't feel like I am qualified to decide what would actually go 'in' to scripture that we have now, as scripture...I know that I don't know, lol- however...someone else in here said that it does fill in a lot of blanks that scripture doesn't expound on, such as...angelic interference- and for reasons such as these, I think that at the very least they are valuable as commentary~

    About the writings of Enoch

    I completely agree with this, I didn't feel that it was 'inspired' either, but more of a...commentary, etc.- thank you, and my shekel is in the mail
