    Depressed about life

    Hello, trialsOFlife! I can tell you EXACTLY what's wrong from reading your words. Our TRUE home is an Eternal City whose architect is God Himself. There will be NO sorrow, misery, pain, tears, etc. We as sojouners are "passing through" this world (cf. Jn. 14:2; 1 Pet. 1:17; 2:11). We are IN this world, but not OF it (Jn. 17:14-15). Your entire perspective on life is NOT how the LORD wants us to see it as. You used the words "relentless" and pointless" -- but that is not true in any sense. All things work together for our Good as God's children (Rom. 8:28); even if you do not see it as such . . . unless you see it through your "spiritual" lens. Everything that you do here on Earth is NOT about ourselves; for such is self-centered and selfish; we are here to Glorify God and to serve others -- and we should take "joy" in doing such. If anyone claiming to be Christian does not have "joy" in the midst of all the misery in this world, it's because they are not centering their thoughts on the Hope of Glory -- but rather in the here and now. Trials in our lives are the "pruning" process in which we MUST endure as good "soldiers" in Christ (see John 15). I see just the opposite from you. Put on the full armor of God and march forward as a soldier into battle; for you are NOT alone in this! In Christ, *Pumpkin*

    My Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I admire your efforts in trying to help AA understand why he even "exists" in the first place. The tragedy in all of this is that he has NO hope at all in his world of "uncertainty" regardless of how he tries to twist the meaning of "meaning" and "purpose". Even if we were to somehow convince this man that God Truly does exist; I seriously doubt that this would lead to his Salvation. The reason why I am saying this is because we are saved by Grace through Faith; and we ALL know that Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things NOT seen (Heb. 11:1). What I see here is a plethora of information that should have had some sort of persuasion to anyone who has even a modicum of discernment; however, even after so many pages on this thread . . . he remains unconvinced. I have had many friends who were once atheists, and are now "theists" -- and they remain in their "unsaved" state because they "reject" the message of the Gospel, and the words of Scripture. Muslims believe in the "existence" of God, and so do Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons; but their understanding of God is absolutely flawed. Their message CANNOT save anyone regardless of whether or not they believe in the existence of God. So it ultimately boils down to whether this man will accept the free invitation of Eternal Life through the eyes of faith, or whether his ego and pride will continue to blind him until he finally meets his maker. Sadly . . . by then it will be too late. Most of us watch the news on a 2 dimensional screen, and it still does not compare to the "realism" of our 3d world that we now live in. When AA dies and meets his maker (could be tomorrow or next year; ONLY God knows), who exists in a "higher reality" and dimension -- it will be REAL as REAL can possibly get. More REAL than our 3d world as we now see and perceive with our limited senses in our human body. "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. (1 Corinthians 13:12)" I can't think of a single atheist who has converted to Christianity as a result of being "proven" to them that the God of the Bible TRULY exists. It's usually (99% of the time) them having suffered a NDE (i.e., "Near Death Experience") and being sent to hell to see the "horrors" first-hand of just how terrifying it was to them. That being said, I do not believe that their "experiences" were genuine; and I believe that they are only in it to make a profit from their books. One might be tempted to ask: "Why would someone want to make up a story about hell? let alone, an atheist?" Human beings "instinctively" have "fear" programmed into their brains to warn them of impending dangers (e.g., "fight-or-flight"), and how to respond to them. So the majority of human beings will be MORE convinced if an "atheist" had been to hell, and "lived" to tell about it. This is a deceptive ploy to bring in the money, and I have seen this time and again. Moreover, I have compared what these "atheists" (even "Christians") have experienced in hell to the Words of Scripture using exegesis, hermeneutics, and grammatical precision in the "original" languages (Hebrew and Koine Greek) -- and there are ALWAYS contradictions. As the Bible says: "Let God be TRUE, but every man a LIAR" (Romans 3:4) "He that believeth [Grk. "pisteuo"; present [t] active [v] participle [m] -- "the one who continually believes"] on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not [Grk. "pisteuo me"; present [t] active [v] participle [m] -- "the one who continues to disbelieve; or has their mind already made up"] is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (John 3:18)" I TRULY am grieved and saddened (from observing his replies to us) that he will most likely remained unconvinced regardless if FACTS were to be shown to him. FACT: Bible prophecy is irrefutable in that there are several books in the Old Testament which were CLEARLY written and dated long before some of the prophecies had been fulfilled. There are thousands of prophecies that have been fulfilled. A few are: The 70 weeks of Daniel. The Conquest of Alexander the Great (Note: written in 6 century BC by Daniel the prophet; and Zechariah the prophet; circa 520-470 BC.). The Destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem (fulfilled 70 AD). Prophesied by Daniel in 538 BC. The Jews who were scattered were regathered back to their homeland, and the rebirth of Israel in 1949 (Note: mentioned in Ezekiel 37). I care for the lost, and it is my hearfelt desire that no one should be condemned to Eternal Punishment; but the sad reality is that MANY will (Matt. 7:13-14). All I can do is pray for this man and hope that God will give him the wisdom and discernment to be willing to come to Him in Faith; because I am almost quite certain that AA will remain an atheist even if this thread were to continue for 50 more pages. But who knows . . . BUT GOD! :-) Here's a prophecy that has yet to be fulfilled, but it will indeed come to pass: "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. (Revelation 21:8)" In Christ, *Pumpkin*

    Sorry to hear about that! And as cliched as this may sound; things will indeed get better, but not in the way the "world" would see it as so. We are told by Jesus to not be anxious for "anything". As difficult as this may sound, we have to trust that the Word of God is true and faithful to its promises (Ps. 23:4; Prov. 12:25; Jn 14:27; Col. 3:15; 2 Thess. 3:16). "Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. (Matthew 6:34)" "And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. (Mark 4:37-39)" Brother wingnut's signature is a key verse in Scripture that should always be part of our daily walk with God. I DO understand how debilitating anxiety can be to some; and I myself have experienced my share in the past as a young man. I'm quite certain that a raging storm would cause most people to be filled with fear and anxiety. Peter, and most of the disciples were "master" fishermen; and they are skilled in fishing as they have most likely done so for most of their lives to support them and their families. Their level of fear and anxiety during the raging storm caused them to wake Jesus while He was sound asleep. They were filled with anxiety because they had failed to put their absolute Trust in Jesus; who had authority over the raging storm (v.39). Our Creator God does not sleep nor slumber (Ps. 121:4; cf. Matt. 12:1-8). Although God had created or "completed" His work of creation in 6 days . . . He does not stop "working" in the sense of Him watching out for His creation and caring for them. An example of this is found in Matthew 12:11 where Jesus illustrates how we should ALWAYS do good to those who are "in need" regardless of what day or hour it is. Jesus (as God) is the Lord of the Sabbath (Matt. 12:1-8; Mk. 2:23-28) and as the "Good Shepherd" (Jn. 10:11-18), He always watches over His sheep -- and guarantees their safety regardless of the day or hour. Jesus was both man and God, and He knew that even though He was "asleep" . . . His Father promised that He will make absolutely certain that His Will cannot fail, and that He is watchful at ALL times -- even when we have our doubts. The fact that Jesus "rebuked" (Grk. "epitimao"; i.e., to "criticize with disapproval") the wind is telling us that the raging storm was most likely a deliberate attack from Satan; as Satan wanted to make every effort to stop God's Divine Will from coming to pass. Jesus only "rebuked" someone or something when He expressed "disapproval". "Be careful [i.e., "anxious"] for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ. (Philippians 4:6-7)" In Christ, *Pumpkin*

    The God of ALL Comfort

    Amen, my dear Brother in Christ! When I am fully aware and abiding in the Spirit, the LORD gives me the green light to weep with those that weep, and to rejoice with those that rejoice. I can't accomplish God's Will in this life without my Beloved in Christ (You, her, him, they) that encourages me and give me guidance to walk according to the Spirit. And I am Greatly Thankful to all of my Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ for that. Jesus said that we will receive a hundredfold in this life, and in the world to come (Matt. 19:29; Mk. 10:30). And I am extremely grateful for receiving many of My Brothers and Sisters in Christ now. And I am looking forward to the Eternal state when we will receive more (Brothers and Sisters in Christ) which no man can number. "After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothes with white robes, and palms in their hands. (Rev. 7:9)" In Christ, *Pumpkin*
  5. Thank you my dear Sister in Christ, Here's the link: The God of All Comfort

    The God of ALL Comfort

    Greetings, my dear brothers and sisters in Christ! I was encouraged to write this as a Brother in Christ had just recently suffered the loss of his brother. I had a blood relative die just recently too -- and he was only 50 years old. It was only by the Grace of God; the Hope of Glory, and the Comfort from my dear brothers and sisters in Christ was I able to cope with this. Long story short . . . I had the opportunity to witness to him and share the Gospel message the last time I was with him (on his birthday; 3/18/18). He TRULY believed the Gospel with all of his heart everything that I had told him concerning the Gospel message; and how/why Jesus shed His precious blood for us sinners on the Cross. Now he is with God and could not be more happier! As difficult as life may seem at certain times in our lives; we can rest assured that God sympathizes with our grief and sorrows as our "Creator" who had "formed" us. He understands us better than we understand ourselves (cf. Matt. 8:17; Jn. 14:17; Rom. 8:26; Heb. 4:15; 5:8). Jesus cried with "Great Love" at the death of His dear friend, Lazarus.; but He also understood that there will come a day when all of our past sorrows and tears will be "eclipsed" by the insurmountable Joy when we enter the Eternal State. Jesus wept intensely at the fact that the people of this World bear so much agony at the loss of their loved ones; and at the same time understood that such things "must be fulfilled" in order for us to understand God for who He truly is. "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. (1 Corinthians 13:12)" "And this is life eternal, that they may know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou has sent. (John 17:3)" This may sound bizarre, or even "delusional" to some; but I have prayed to the LORD that I may know Him in such a way that would surpass all understanding (here and now in this world). I can CLEARLY see it already coming to pass, and it is undeniable to me; however, I have also learned that such a request will come with the whole "package" (i.e., "extreme sorrow; grief and tears beyond measure, incalculable sadness, absolute separation from the world system, severe pain, suffering in the flesh, death to sin; etc."). Eternal Life is not only the "duration" of life, but also the "quality" of life (Matt. 16:25; Jn. 6:35; 8:12; 10:10; 12:25; 14:6; Gal. 2:20; Phil. 1:21; Col. 3:3-4; 1 Tim. 6:17-19; 1 Jn. 5:20). Death is not a "cessation" of existence; rather it is a "separation of something in which it belongs (i.e., "faith without works is dead; the body without the spirit is dead" -- James 2:14-26) to. In the world to come; God will lead us unto living fountains of waters -- and it will literally take an "Eternity" to "know" God for who He truly is in the purest and highest sense of the word. "For the lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains or waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. (Revelation 7:17)" Knowing these things: we can "rejoice" and be filled with the "Joy of the Lord" no matter how much Fiery trials we have faced or will face in this short journey of life. I pray that the Lord will give Comfort to those who need it in this time of need: an "otherworldly" Kingdom Joy and Comfort; and a peace that the "world" cannot give to them (Deut. 31:8-9; Josh. 1:9-10; Ps. 23:4; 27:1; Jn. 14:26; et al). Our life is but a "vapor" in light 'of' Eternity; and NO amount of misery, grief, sorrow, and tears can take that away from this very Truth which will come to pass one day in the World to Come (Isa. 65:17; Jas. 4:14; 2 Pet. 3:12-13; Rev. 21:1). "But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. (1 Corinthians 2:9)" In Closing: We cannot full fathom why certain things occur in our lives unless we are zoned in to the Will of God for us. Nevertheless, we only need to know what we need to know in this world; and there will ALWAYS be events in our lives when we are tempted to ask God, why, or why me? Even so . . . God is Faithful to only give us that which we are able to deal with; and to not overwhelm us with hardships that we cannot bear as we put our Absolute Trust in Him. "But let him that glorieth (Heb. "halal" i.e., "boast") glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD, (Jeremiah 9:24)" In Christ, *Pumpkin*
  7. The loss of your brother has encouraged me to write a topic regarding comfort and peace in the midst of trials. I will do so now. Thanks!

    Beware of Deception IN the Church

    Yes, the enemy is a great counterfeiter! There are instance in Scripture where men of God are overwhelmed by His presence (Ezek. 1:28; Dan. 8:17-18; 10:7-9; Matt. 17:6; Rev. 1:17). These are in complete opposition to people barking like dogs and rolling around the floor laughing incessantly. As you rightly pointed out; these experiences MUST be tested by the infallible Truth of God's written Word. In Christ, *Pumpkin*

    Are you TRULY "born-again"?

    I love you too my dear Brother in Christ!
  10. Hello my Brothers and Siters in Christ! There seems to be an influx of "professing" Christians who lack any sort of spiritual substance in their lives. This is to those who have eyes to see, ears to hear, and to understand with their hearts (cf. Isa. 6:10; Jer. 5:21; Ezek. 12:2; Matt. 13:15; Acts 28:27). Much of what I am about to say are mostly likely known by my brothers and sisters here; but I will mention this for the sake of those who may not be saved, even as I write this. Our LORD Jesus said: "Not every one that saith unto me, LORD, LORD, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, LORD, LORD, have we not prophesied in they name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." This is a terrifying thought to anyone professing to be a child of God if they were to hear those words on that Great Day. Jesus will reply to them that He NEVER "knew" them (i.e., "they were never saved to begin with"). Most of us here already know that the word "know" (Heb. "yada" and Grk. "ginosko") is indicative of a deep and intimate relationship with someone or something (Gen. 3:5; 4:1; 8:11; Lev. 5:4; Num. 12:6; Deut. 4:35; Ps. 20:6; 31:7; Jer. 24:7; 44:15; Jn. 17:3; Matt. 7:23; Mk. 13:28; Lk. 1:34; Jn. 10:27; Rom. 3:17; 1 Cor. 1:21; 1 Jn. 5:20; Rev. 3:9; et al.). The LXX Septuagint uses "ginosko" for the word "know" in the Hebrew. "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish. (John 10:27-28)" "And this is life eternal, they they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou has sent. (John 17:3)" We must all do a "spiritual inventory" of ourselves to see whether we are truly born-again. The bible makes it very clear that we can KNOW with absolute certainity that we possess Eternal life (Jn. 3:36; 5:24,39; 8:31-32; 10:27-30; Rom. 8:38-39; 1 Jn. 5:13). This is not to say that genuine Christians can at times experience"doubt" as to whether they are truly saved or not (cf. 1 Jn. 3:20). But there are many reasons as to why a "believer" may have these doubts in their hearts -- and they are: They are "living in sin and disobedience" more often than they should be. They are not convinced that God's promise of Salvation is True in the TRUEST sense as it is laid out in Scripture. They are trusting in their own "works" as being supplemental for their Salvation. They may not even be saved at all; or were NEVER saved to begin with, and are under a delusion that they are. The bible places great emphasis when it commands all professing believers to "examine themselves" to see whether they are truly regenerated; otherwise they can deceive themselves not knowing that they are in reality counterfeit Christians (2 Cor. 13:5; 2 Pet. 1:10; cf. Gal. 5:22-23). "Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? (2 Corinthians 13:5)" There are certain indicators in which we can examine the genuineness of our Salvation. The "fruit" of "the Spirit" characterize the traits of a child of God by their lifestyle and behavior. They possess these traits (Gal. 5:22;23; Matt. 7:16-20 -- "Love, joy, peace, self-control, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and patience"). Genuine conversion also has absolute indicators of the born-again Christian; and that personifies divine and sacrificial love (Grk. "agapao" -- Jn. 13:35; 15:13; 1 Jn. 3:14). Then we have the sanctifiction process and conformity to the image of Christ (Rom. 12:2; 2 Thess. 2:13; Gal. 2:20; Col. 2:11; 3:5; 2 Tim. 2:21; Heb. 9:14; 12:14; etc.). As we are take up our crosses "daily" (Matt. 16:24), we have an increase or hatred towards sin and "hunger and thirst" after righteousness (Matt. 5:6). We will abhor the world system and carnal desires as we mature spiritually, and our desires will be to "please" the LORD and walk in obedience to His Commandments because we love Him after He first loved us (1 Jn. 4:19). And finally, sin will not have "dominion" over our lives as we are "new creatures" in Christ Jesus (Ezek. 11:9-20; 36:25-27; Rom. 6:1-20; 2 Cor. 3:18; 5:17; Eph. 2:10; 4:22-24; Gal. 6:15; 2 Pet. 1:4). There are plenty much more found within Scripture which can give us the GUARANTEE that we are indeed truly saved, and have peace with God. In Christ, *Pumpkin*

    Do you know Jesus?

    Thank you for sharing this, my brother in Christ! Christianity is so shallow in the times we're living in today. As the scripture says:"having a form of godliness, but deying its power (2 Tim. 3:5-7)"

    Beware of Deception IN the Church

    This is a great observation and demonstrates the use of spiritual discernment. I have seen videos of where these wolves in sheeps clothing supposedly impart the "portion" of the Holy Spirit in individuals, and in one instance they end up "eating grass" like an animal. This is VERY disturbing, and we find an example of this with Nebuchadnezzer "eating grass" like an animal (Dan. 4:33). This was a punishment upon him for NOT acknowledging the One True Living God of all creation; who removes and sets up kings as He so pleases according to the counsel of His divine decrees (cf. Dan. 2:21; Isa. 45:1; Jn. 19:11; Rom. 13:1-2; Rev. 17:17; etc.)

    this my soul

    Yowm's signature speaks volumes regarding True worship in the church, especially that which has to do with not only the music style -- but its content (i.e., "lyrics"). It is sad that much of what is deemed "worship" songs sung in contemporary Christianity has little to nothing at all to do with "doctrine". There are many CCM that sound no different than secular songs today; which can also stir up a lot of emotions in people. There is the deception that getting "emotional" while singing songs in a local brick and mortar church is somehow an indication that one is "filled" with the Spirit; and the danger in that is that humans, as emotional creatures, can be duped into believing that they are "filled" with the Spirit when it is nothing more than an external display of ones emotions -- and we can rightly discern this especially when the song being sung by the "worshipper" has no "doctrinal" content at all, and are completely devoid of any TRUTH. In Christ, *Pumpkin*

    Beware of Deception IN the Church

    This is disturbing my brothers and sisters in Christ! What I find interesting are those who are "slain" in the Spirit, and how they usually fall backwards when this occurs. Nowhere in Scripture do people fall "backwards" when the the power of the Holy Spirit or God's "presence" is there; as a matter of fact . . . it is just the opposite. Godly men and women fall on their faces before God in worship or reverence, and not backwards (Gen. 17:3; Lev. 9:24; 1 Kin. 18:39; 1 Chron. 21:16; Num. 20:6; Neh. 8:6; Judg. 13:20; Ezek. 1:28; 9:8; Matt. 17:6; Lk. 5:12; Rev. 7:11; et al.) Even the "false god "dagon" the statue fell on its face (This is a perfect example of God's humor in Scripture) in 1 Samuel 5:3 in a form of "worship" (cf. Isa. 45:23; Rom. 14:11; Phil. 2:10). Even Jesus Himself (in His "humanity") fell on His face before His Father (Matt. 26:39). The only instance where we find those falling "backwards" in the presence of God is in the Garden of Gethsemane; where the soldiers (who were "unbelievers") fell "backwards" when Jesus said, "I AM" (Grk. "ego eimi" cf. Ex. 3:14). "They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. As soon then as he said unto them, I am he, they went backwards and fell to the ground. (John 18:5-6)" The italicized "he" is NOT in the original manuscripts. It is clear from the context that Jesus was indeed claiming to be the Eternal God ("I AM"). As a result; they fell "backwards" as ALL unbelievers do -- not "forward" on their faces. This may be another topic; but there is indeed a race of "serpentine" creatures who dwell beneath the Earth who work alongside humans sold out to Satan; these are the minions of the Devil Himself. Interestingly enough, these serpentine creatures at times have a "winged serpent" on their one piece uniforms as their logo. We must understand that "the serpent of old" once walked "upright" (cf. Rev. 12:9; 20:2; Gen. 3:14) and probably had arms and legs. Satan is called the "prince of the power of the air" (Grk. "archon exousia aer" -- Eph. 2:1). The Greek word "archon" speaks of "spiritual beings" of great power (cf. Eph. 6:12; e.g., "principalities, powers, rulers, dominions, thrones, etc") -- and the word "air" means just that . . . the atmospheric and starry heavens (1st and 2nd heavens; e.g., "the clouds, the stars and cosmos"). This is where Satan (the serpent of old) does all his dirty work. What is interesting is that these are the abode where "flying saucers" and "aliens" are often seen. We must understand that these are NOT "aliens" at all; rather they are demonic creatures in biologically designed "body suits" that they possess. I DO not believe that the Antichrist and the False Prophet will be entirely human; and that there will be a "false resurrection" (Rev. 13:3) which will be accomplished by having the demonic spirit which indwells the body of the Antichrist to move to the "cloned" body. The Antichrist is said to be a king of "fierce countenance" (Dan. 8:23 - Heb. "melek az paniym"; or "he will have the 'presence' of mighty and bold features" -- or intimidating). This to me, implies that his physical "features" will be "intimidating" and "god-like" in appearance. This is to further deceive the unbelieving world into the great deception that He is God Himself on Earth! Furthermore, he will understand "dark sentences" (Heb. "biyn chiydah"; a great understanding of deep mysteries unknown to those who dwell on Earth). He will use this to deceive those who dwell upon the Earth. Since I do NOT want to derail this thread; I will leave it as that. I can assure others that I can back up EVERYTHING that I had just mentioned using Scripture and exegesis if we were to discuss this on another thread. I cannot reveal how I know that such creatures exist; as this will lead to an onslaught of demonic attacks, and I am not in the mood to play "footsies" with Satan and his minions of darkness. I will say that I have INDEED seen for myself that these creatures are VERY REAL; and are not only "hyperdimensional" -- but can slip in and out (at will) of our dimension to other dimensions (e.g., "the spirit realm" and "alternate realities"). In Christ, *Pumpkin*

    Shooting in California

    This is indeed tragic! As to what possesses such people to commit such atrcious acts such as this is beyond me. I'm compelled to believe that such people are under the "mind control" of Satan; and this man left an open door in his heart for the enemy to advance and infiltrate his tabernacle (his body).
