    We can know the Day and Hour of His Return

    HeWillCome2040, Thank you for this thoughtful post. It seems that the majority always want to go with the constant "mantra" of "no man knows the day or the hour." Few seem to have the ability or the desire to reason and think beyond this point. I find this a little strange since Noah was clearly told when to get into the Ark with his family. Elija also knew when he was going to be translated into heaven and spoke with Elisha about it beforehand. I also find it unbelievable that anyone would think that Jesus doesn't know "the day or the hour" right now as He's seated with God on His throne in heaven.

    Urgent Prayer Request

    INDULGENCES

    It takes a lot of "hocus pocus" and "slight of hand" (the hand is quicker than the eye) to defend the Catholic Church in this day and age where Our Saviour is portrayed as still being on the cross and where the idolatry of praying to Mary is encouraged. I'm not a disgruntled Catholic; I'm a former Catholic who has had the blinders removed from his eyes by Jesus my Saviour. "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6

    Shocked by a sermon today

    Well said frienduff thaylorde. Many in this day and age try to make excuses for the Catholic Church and try to "candy coat" the true evil that the Catholic Church represents. My heart grieves for the multitudes of Catholics that are believing a lie, and the false hope that they've been given, that "all is well with their souls" and they have no need for further concern about their "eternal destiny." This is certainly deception by the "evil one". This false hope is very dangerous and destructive. I can speak with some authority on this matter because I was raised Catholic since I was a young lad and jumped through lots of hoops for the Catholic Church. Then in my high school years, the Lord graciously reached out to me and drew me unto Jesus, my Saviour. Then everything changed in my life, and the blinders were removed from my eyes. I left the Catholic Church almost immediately, and the Lord led me to a bible preaching church. "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." 2 Cor 4:4

    Do Sheep Ever Worry?

    My thanks to everyone for sharing your thoughts and insights. There are many references to God's people being likened to sheep in the Bible. Here are just a few of them: "It is written, For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice," Psalms 95:7 "He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep." John 21:16 Jesus said, "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:" John 10:27. "As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter." Romans 8:36

    Do Sheep Ever Worry?

    "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want." Psalms 23:1 The 23rd Psalm has brought me so much comfort in my Christian walk. Knowing that Abba Father indeed is my Shepherd and that I have nothing to fear is wonderful. Yet, being human I find myself often tempted to worry and fret. "Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture." Psalm 100:3. I've been thinking about the similarities between the sheep of the four-legged variety and us humans. Like the sheep, I sometimes find myself tempted to graze in unhealthy and hurtful pastures where I get myself into trouble and mischief as I go along. And then after I've erred or gone astray, the Great Sheppard will lovingly extend His Staff and rescue me once again and set me in the safe place of His lush and healthy green pastures. Like the sheep, I am quite stubborn and rascally at times too. The sheep surely get frightened, apprehensive and flee in panic when predators come around and threaten them. But I don't think the sheep are worrying about what's going to happen tomorrow or next week or what happened yesterday as I sometimes do. I believe the sheep are also largely unaware of the watchful eye and care of their Shepherd and have no idea of the steps and actions that the Shepherd is taking in the background 24/7 to protect and care for them. I think humans and sheep have this in common. The Lord knows the problems, threats, and dangers that are coming our way even when we don't have a clue about what's really going on, which I think is usually the case. I'm also oblivious to the myriads of steps the Lord is taking around the clock to protect me and keep me safe. How many times has the Lord sent his angels to minister unto us and intervene on our behalf of which we are unaware? I'm sure the cause of my worry and fretting is due primarily to a lack of complete trust in my Heavenly Father's love and care for me. I believe the Lord is pleased when we fully trust Him with our lives and everything that pertains to us. If I trusted my heavenly Father more, I'm sure I'd worry less. "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6. Our Heavenly Father is so patient with us as we learn to trust Him with each new day.

    Widows and Widowers

    "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world." James 1:27 I know our Heavenly Father truly understands the heartache of a Widow/Widower. God the Father had to turn His eyes away from His one and only Son as he suffered and died on the cross for the sins of His people. Gods word makes mention of Widows in several places and admonishes us to honor them, 1 Timothy 5:3. I know something of the hurt and heartache of loss too because I am a widower of over four years now, and I lost three more members of my family over a period of about three and a half years. My wife passed away from cancer in April 2014 nine days before her birthday. My Father passed away ten months before that in June 2013. Then my Mother died in Jan 2015. And later my Sister died in Dec 2016. The Holy Spirit, our Comforter, continues to help me through the mourning process and things have now become a bit more manageable with the passing of time, but I don't think my sense of loss will ever completely go away. I'm sharing these things to bring glory to our Heavenly Father and to hopefully encourage anyone whos reading this and has suffered the loss of loved ones. Our Heavenly Father is faithful to take us by the hand and guide us through any situation no matter how painful and hurtful it may be. The Lord has sustained me, guided me, and comforted me entirely during this time of loss through His Word and by His Holy Spirit. I don't think I've ever felt the need to ask my Heavenly Father why all these things have happened because I know He truly knows what's best and Is indeed using all of my life experiences to mold me and shape me into the likeness of His Son Jesus Christ. All Glory to God, the Great I AM
