    His Versus He For He

    Please forgive me. I have been addressing you all wrong. I cannot claim a righteous anger defence [11 Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against a brother or sister or judges them speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it. 12 There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you-who are you to judge your neighbor? - James 4:11-12 New International Version (NIV)]. God wants better. I cannot scare you into heaven anymore than I can drag out of hell. God is in control. He makes and lets everything happen. All has and will happen for Christians' good [28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose. - Romans 8:28 (NIV)]. My questionable Facebook activity has led to this apology and following testimony. May it encourage you and give you hope. Praise God. Jesus Christ saved me from homosexual tendencies [10 for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers-and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine - 1 Timothy 1:10 (NIV)]. In my dark past I flirted with ideas, the scene and foreplay of man on man sexual relations. In the moment of those times it was a distraction and escape from my living hell. Such activity always had bad consequences [35 "Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Since you have forgotten me and turned your back on me, you must bear the consequences of your lewdness and prostitution." - Ezekiel 23:35 (NIV)]. Yet like a nicotine addiction I was drawn back to get lost in that fleeting moment of oblivion. It and I was miserable. I will not give details here and now publicly. In person I am happy to answer questions and share Christ's solution with you. Praise God. I love you. I care for your well being. My half life of suffering has grown great compassion and empathy. I weep and mourn for the lost, rejected, down trodden and oppressed, spit upon and left for dead. I know and understand because I was there as one of them. Now I am found, nurtured, lifted up and suffering gladly only because of Jesus Christ [17 But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,' declares the Lord, 'because you are called an outcast, Zion for whom no one cares.' - Jeremiah 30:17 (NIV)]. Praise God. He saved me from my living hell involving depression, drugs, marijuana, alcoholism, willful sin, pornography, homosexual tendencies, the occult, blasphemy, loneliness, numbness and people who accepted this and let it persist [3 For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do-living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry. - 1 Peter 4:3 (NIV)]. Now I am healed, restored, alive and well because I believe and am born again. I bear much fruit and look forward to a bright future in Christ. I will never return to the enemy. It pains me to look back or even be reminded of such serious suffering. I am sorry for your suffering. I am sorry I made you suffer. I continue to repent. Life is good to wake up to eternally because of the Son of God, my personal Saviour, our Lord [12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved." - Acts 4:12 (NIV)]. Thank God.

    Do or die to me. ~ Luke 18:18

    Luke 18:18 New International Version (NIV) 18 A certain ruler asked him, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” Follow Jesus Christ, no one or anything else. Leave everyone and everything standing in between behind. My shock and dread diminishes as I come to terms with this. I must even die to myself. I am rich, I am blessed. To account for all I have been given and kept from would make me a king. Alas, I am proud and stubbornly hanging onto Earthly accomplishments and interests. Glory be to God, yet I still try to impress with works. I have been gifted many talents and abilities. Squandering time and energy on things that have nothing to do with God have offended and opposed Him. My citizenship in the kingdom of God needs to be patriotic. Questioned and challenged, I need to stand tall and strong through songs of praise unto the Lord, Jesus Christ, my personal Saviour. I may be a king, but I must be a willing slave to the King of kings. I have dreams worthy of interpretation. One was of a long-time friend wanting to know what would happen to his daughter from whom he was being separated. This made me think of the rapture. Would all young children be taken up due to their innocence or ignorance? I imagined God granting a final farewell before the final decision and division between heaven and hell. My old friend cares dearly for his daughter but nothing for God. I have a favourite family member I love dearly yet he is not saved. Thankfully he listens to and entertains the subject matter of Christianity sometimes. I do not know his fate any more than I know mine. God knows. The reason I bring all of the above up describes my dilemma, although diminishing. I have prayed to God many times, in Jesus Christ’s name, to save my whole family from hell. I must accept and defend the fact that not all will be. I am being selfish. I am tempted to demand and make conditions with the Lord for what I will and want. That cannot be. I must die to my selfish self even if that means giving up my relative. I will not give up on him as long as we both live on this Earth. I trust righteous destiny in God’s sovereign hands. Only God is good. Everyone and everything else is no comparison or substitution. Truth is this way. More and more this gives me comfort and joy. I know what I must do. I confess, apologize for, rebuke and desperately fumble for repentance from any ungodliness. I am led away from the darkness, disillusionment and death of this world by Christ’s light. I am eternally grateful and in the Lord’s debt for my life. May I be a living sacrifice on God’s holy altar. May I be dead to all else that challenges this. May I live solely for the Holy Trinity eternally. Gregory Brumwell ~ September 2018 ~ Nova Scotia Luke 18:18-30 New International Version (NIV) 18 A certain ruler asked him, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 19 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone. 20 You know the commandments: ‘You shall not commit adultery, you shall not murder, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, honor your father and mother.’[a]” 21 “All these I have kept since I was a boy,” he said. 22 When Jesus heard this, he said to him, “You still lack one thing. Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” 23 When he heard this, he became very sad, because he was very wealthy. 24 Jesus looked at him and said, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God! 25 Indeed, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” 26 Those who heard this asked, “Who then can be saved?” 27 Jesus replied, “What is impossible with man is possible with God.” 28 Peter said to him, “We have left all we had to follow you!” 29 “Truly I tell you,” Jesus said to them, “no one who has left home or wife or brothers or sisters or parents or children for the sake of the kingdom of God 30 will fail to receive many times as much in this age, and in the age to come eternal life.” Luke 18:18-30 New International Version (NIV)
  3. Sense God’s Peace To peace as my mind’s chatter becomes numb. … From dumb ones’ mindless matters. It is all up to He to set my brain free- Becoming less flesh; naughty body! God’s Spirit breaks free past chains misery, Drowning in sorrow, sin pained. Let me again pray for you, friend, Replacing my rant on the mend. In the Lord I place you to soothe stress gone through. Now on this new page I will write Christ answers for you. He’s how I got through Healed, restored full; reborn new. I thought that you knew [all In the mind true] Whom Calms stormy seas. He Makes us all be Still, sensed God’s Word peacefully. ~ Sense God’s Peace ~ 2018 ~ Gregory KJ Brumwell 11 Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you. ~ 2 Corinthians 13:11 (NIV) 19 lines #MindOfGod #JesusChrist #Sin #Peace

    "All for Today"

    8 Record my misery; list my tears on your scroll[a]— are they not in your record? ~ Psalm 56:8 New International Version (NIV) Thank you SisterActs2 and for referencing Psalm 56. That whole chapter soothes, comforts and relates to me and my experience. I like to believe the worst is over and the best is yet to come. My God and salvation is bigger than fear or worry. All is well and will be, now, in my heart, mind, body and soul. Everything else is a distraction from my Lord and His truth. God is good, rejoice! Jesus saves, Jonathan

    What the World Needs Now (Revival)!

    Dear Lord, in Jesus Christ's name I pray. Welcome Holy Spirit, embody this nation, government and military. God bless Donald Trump, keep him protected, helped and leading your nation strong and free. God bless Justin Trudeau, bend his will to yours, humble him and teach him what he needs to know of You. Thank you Lord for the peace talks in Korea! This is an appreciated answer to so many pleading prayers! We pray for the same peace and understanding in Cameroon, please have mercy and save its people. Please forgive us of all our sins. Especially excuse evil where we oppose, mock and vilify You. Please Lord, we know not what we do. Bless and revive us Lord, thy kingdom come. Put us through the painful process of cleansing this world, nation, generation and church of backsliding, sleepiness, enemies within, blasphemy, watering down of God's truth, word and law. Prune and throw such chaff into the lake of fire. Have us accept and cherish your free gift of salvation and eternal life immediately through your Son's sacrifice in place of our sin debt. May we all pray for this in our life now! Heal, restore and revive your body of Christ saved to do good works in the Lord. May we be light, salt and disciples to this desperate world. Hallelujah, he is risen, he is risen indeed! I pray this sincerely for all lost, enemies and loved ones in Jesus Christ's name, amen! GregoryB

    Christians going to help

    I read the entire "Christian's going to hell" thread and was about to jump in with my own reply. I did not realize the limitations of this forum section. I suppose that is fine. I got a lot out of what was discussed but still struggle with some of it. I get all the points of views, proof, beliefs and such. I am not trying to call out or trap anyone. I am a baby Christian and have honest questions for clarification. I pray we can all come to an agreement on God's word and truth. I was hoping we could base the discussion on Matthew 25 ( https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=matthew+25&version=NIV ) and how it related to the thread I could not jump in on. My question is this. Does Matthew 25 add or take away from any and all posts made there by *everyone*? I have more specific questions too. The ten virgins for starters, do they not represent Christians covered in the blood of Jesus? I am not clear on the oil in their lamps as well. I suppose it could relate to my above general question. I am wrestling with all this. I believe I am a born again Christian. I have faith in my salvation. I am concerned about others I care for and love. I will elaborate and add more enquiries as this thread develops. May opportunities open to know and understand the Holy Trinity better. Be well, content and helpful in the Lord.

    I want a relationship with Jesus

    Dear God, I want Acacia to feel Jesus deep in her heart. I pray she experience Christ's favour and I want him and his love to always be in her heart. I ask You encourage her to go deeper with You, following straight and narrow in Christ's eternal life shining and overflowing from within. May this be Your will to intervene with Your power divinely. I want Acacia to have an invigorated relationship with Jesus that she can feel, breathe and live. May she come to life, alive in Christ with Christ in her. May she be Christ's light to the world and salt of the Earth with a strong testimony leading people to Jesus. Heal, restore and renew her faith in You. To You I pray, Heavenly Father, in Jesus Christ's name, my Lord and Saviour, welcoming the Holy Spirit, amen. Peace, love and joy to you sister, GregoryB
  12. All is One "All is one," said the mother to her son; letting him into the sum. All is too: a number to silly to assume; too much for our fledgling minds to consume; a comforting concept while facing impending doom. All is free from the constraints of all that might be because it is and already has been and again will be seen. All is more foreboding than it sounds because we are bit parts of its zounds and cannot be weighed like the gold it is in pounds. All is jive, hipper than a hippopotamus, cool and stays anonymous, sweeter than cherry cream slushiness. All is mixed: no favourite picks, many types of fuddle sticks, but not wishy-washy in the least little bit. All is heaven and, yes, hell too; including the purgatory we live through... but this is all according to little old me All is what it is to all of you too. - GKJ Brumwell (early oughts)

    "All for Today"

    "Water of Life" A strange thing happened to me on the road to death. I was born. It took me a very long happy time before I got bored and even acknowledged the road I was on. I woke up. Instantaneously I looked back but couldn't see the time before the time I first remember. It was as if I had stepped into a stream along my plane ride of existence. This stream was the water of life and I must have decided to cross it. I couldn't cheat it by crossing some sort of covered bridge. But looking back again I must have decided to get very wet. Because looking for the shore wanting to know more I fell in. Now I sometimes swim, sometimes wade and yes even walk the waters. A soaking awakening, this life, on the road to the rest. - GKJ Brumwell 2003
