  1. @Debp I apologize dear sister for hi-jacking your thread in my last post, so to try and redeem myself I'll say something nice about President Trump. From what I have observed from the President's actions, ...from what I have read from people that have been close to him or touched by his kindness..., I believe, in my heart, if President Donald Trump had any possible legal way that wouldn't be thwarted by those that don't believe or live by the Judeo-Christian moral values used by the founding Fathers of America to establish this nation, ...he would put an end to the Molech worship of murdering the unborn innocent babies in America immediately. Lord bless
  2. I'm a little confused, you say we are to be furthering God's kingdom, but then you say Roe vs Wade will never be repealed so we should just get use to it? Please don't take this as an attack, ...but are you saying we should be quiet, ignore the facts and just accept the murder of innocent infants (incidentally, the most dangerous place in America for a child today is not on the streets, ...but in it's mother's womb) ...and continue on with furthering the Kingdom of God?
  3. Traditionally it is, however I know of churches that take Communion corporately at a regularly planned Sunday service, ...and also provide the elements everyday from early morning and into the night while the doors of the Church are open, ...there could be many reasons why believers missed the planned service, work, illness, out of town, or during the week the Lord has worked in a mighty way in their lives and they come to worship Him and thank Him for it. Communion isn't about the physical elements or where we take it, ...Communion is One on one communication with our Heavenly Father in spirit and Truth, it's worship in the deepest sense, it can be time alone, in Eternity, with the One who loves us more than we will ever understand or comprehend, I'm certain Heybro and his bride, as he stated above, know this and that is why they spend time alone with Father the other six days of the week. The elements and the location are just points of contact for us, it's written in Hab 2:4, The just live by faith, ...this Truth is so important that Jesus wrote three commentaries on the verse, ...Romans explains the just, Galatians explains how to live and Hebrews explains what faith is, ...in the Gospels we see Jesus chiding the disciples for their lack of faith in what He had said after He had performed many miracles in front of them, there is a lesson there for us, ...all through His ministry He used a point of contact when He performed them, ...mud, spit, washing, showing themselves to the priests, ...but at the end of His ministry He didn't use a point of contact, He just spoke the miracle, ...Lazarus, ...Come'ere! Then His last public miracle He was chiding Peter while at the same time putting Malchus's ear back on his head, ...no points of contact. The lesson for us is Father wants us to grow in faith where we don't actually need the points of contact to enter into His presence, ...He wants us to learn the reality of, ...we are presently seated, ...in Christ, ...in Heaven, ...with Jesus and Father, ...they become reminders instead of necessary things to enter into Their presence, ...that's the lesson for us in Psalm 73:17, Asaph was troubled with what he observed, until he entered the Sanctuary and saw all of the reminders represented by the different pieces of furniture. There are some who will say, "You are too Heavenly minded to be of any use here on earth," ...the Truth is, ...we won't be of any use here on earth until we are heavenly minded. Lord bless
  4. Nothing is wrong sis, you just need to be taught what Communion is all about, it's more than partaking of the elements, look what Terry sang, We worship our God in humble submission for who He is, Bow and worship, broken hearted at Your feet, We bow broken hearted at His feet because we realize we have issues and there is nothing we can do about them, ...but He can, ...and that's what communion is all about, ...remembering what He has done for us. With this cup I remember the Blood that He bled out for us on that Cross, ...without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins, With this bread I break and eat, ...this is My body broken for you, ...by His stripes we are healed, May I humbly suggest you go online and search for a Nave's Topical Bible, it's free in pdf format, or google eSword, free also, it's a Bible Study aid for PC with lots of good stuff and Vines is there too, that way you can look at every reference for Communion, and other topics, in the Word and study for yourself. Also, like Heybro said, you can take Communion in you own home, the only command Jesus gave us is, ...Do this in remembrance of Me, ...and don't get hung up on what to use, Father is looking for those that worship Him in spirit and Truth, so what we use as a point of contact in not important. Lord bless beloved
  5. Hi Kristin, okay I'll be praying for you too, ...just one thing, you are fighting against an addiction empowered by the supernatural and you will never win in that contest, ...however if you let the Holy Spirit fight the fight, He will win and you will be free. For me, rapid breathing into a paper bag, as if you were hyperventilating, works for me. Temecula, ...small world, I was a super for the underground construction company at Butterfield Estates Mobile Home Park, LOL, ...I'm a long way from there now, greetings from Tahiti. Lord bless
  6. Dear ones reading this who are too timid or shy to post....., This is a perfect example of heresy, ...heresy means giving your own opinion on a verse or subject in the Bible. To say a born again, Holy Spirit filled child of God could ever return and serve satan is blasphemy, ...what that means is the Holy Spirit, God Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth living inside of them would be under the authority of one of His creations, ...ain't gonna happen! Yes a Holy Spirit filled, born again child of God can be tempted, deceived and fall into sin, because of the power of the prince of the air exerted on them through the old carnal nature still living inside of them, ...but they will miserable, the Holy Spirit living inside of them being grieved because they have subjected Him to their filthy sin (...thus meaning of what Jesus said, "those that are already clean just need their feet washed"), but, ...He has a job to do in them and that is to conform them into the image of Jesus Christ, so He will never abandon, leave or forsake them to be able to serve satan, also, ...His reputation is at stake, He is our guarantee that He will take us to the end of this pilgrimage. Please understand these false teachings are meant to frighten, discourage and shipwreck your tender faith, and as you can see they bring division, discord and contention in the body of Christ. Only by pride comes argument, but with those who take advice is wisdom. Pro 12:10 A fool's lips enter into argument, and his mouth calls for strokes. Pro 18:6 Cast out the scorner, and fighting shall go out; yes, quarrels and shame shall cease. Pro 22:10 Who is wise and knowing among you? Let him show his works by his good conduct with meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and strife in your hearts, do not glory and lie against the truth. This is not the wisdom coming down from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife are, there is confusion and every foul deed. But the wisdom that is from above is first truly pure, then peaceable, gentle, easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. Jas 3:13-18 Lord bless
  7. The song we sang during Communion I Remember With this cup I remember Thee And the Blood that was shed for me With this bread I break and eat Humbly bow and worship Broken hearted at Your feet. I remember I remember I remember You Words by Terry Clark ...which he sang when he came to teach at our church
  8. Yes..., Communion is so much more than that, Communion is just one part of the Koinonia in the body of Christ: And they were continuing steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine, and in fellowship and in the breaking of the loaves, and in prayers. And fear came on every soul. And many wonders and miracles took place through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things common. And they sold their possessions and goods and distributed them to all, according as anyone had need. And continuing with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they shared food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved. Acts 2:42-47
  9. Totally false, the the Holy Spirit writing through the quill of Dr Luke tells us, ...Paul speaking: And I punished them often in every synagogue; I compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly furious against them, I persecuted them even to the outside cities. Acts 26:11 But Jesus, ...tells Paul in persecuting the above mentioned saints: And all of us falling to the ground, I heard a voice speaking to me and saying in the Hebrew dialect, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads. And I said, Who are you, lord? And He said, I am Jesus whom you persecute. Acts 26:14, 15 That means the Holy Spirit is telling us even though born again believers are forced to blaspheme Jesus by being persecuted, ...that in actuality the One being persecuted is Jesus Himself and NOT His child.... Once Saved Always Saved!!! And friend, something you really need to consider, if you believe you can lose your salvation through preaching false doctrines related to salvation, ...then you must be shaking in you boots right now...
  10. Communion as taught in the New Testament was taken after everyone has eaten a meal together, back in my church in the States that's how we did it, after Sunday's service we had a potluck where everyone brought something to eat, then after the meal we had a time of worship and then Communion, ...man do I miss that! So when searching for a church, make certain it's a Word based, Bible teaching church and then ask about their Communion service, ...most important, ...what I did, ask Father to place you in the Church He has for you. Lord bless
  11. Hello brother, praise God for your willingness and zeal,.yes you can make a difference, ...you ask for real life examples, ...well, I've been on the mission field for 28 years. The first and most important advice I can give you is make sure Father has called you, ...please don't be discouraged and I don't say this to cause you to doubt and shipwreck your faith, ...the reason I say that is over the years I seen people who say they have been called who Father didn't call and it was both a personal (spiritually) and financial disaster for them, one couple came and even started a church that failed miserably and turned many off to Jesus Christ. When the Lord called me here to Tahiti, I knew, that I knew, that I knew He called me, ...because He gave me the faith to believe Him, ...there were many in my own church that told me I was too young in the Lord (been saved only 5 years and only 2 of those years in a Bible teaching church), ...or it was just my lustful desires to go on a vacation in Tahiti, ...or I wasn't properly trained or prepared, ...or I didn't have the backing of a Mission Board and I was going as lone ranger, ...however, it turned our to be my stepping out of the boat and walk on water experience, ..and yes, after 10 months I took my eyes off of Jesus I looked at the storm and started to sink, ...but Jesus, ...reached down and pulled me back up and I've been walking with the Lord on the water all of these years. ...so tell me brother, how do you know, in your heart, you have been called and where have you been called to? Now for some practical advice, ...shocking as it is to us, ...most of the world considers us The Ugly Americans, we, middle class, are rich beyond most of the world's wildest dreams, so, leave all of your favorite toys home, the reason I asked where are you called to is you need to study the living conditions there, why..., don't come dressed in your Calvin Klines, your Nike tennies, your Ray-Ban sunglasses, study and learn how the locals dress and buy your clothes to bring with you in the thrift stores o fit it, ...most important, be ready to have your stuff stolen, ...like I said, their mentality is we are rich and can afford it, ...second study what the locals eat and and stop eating like an American before you leave and start to eat like them (prepare yourself mentally, ...it's going to be a culture shock for you and silently pray over everything that enters your mouth, ...that the Lord would sanctify and bless it so that you don't become sick), ...why, 'cuz they will test you to see your reaction when they ask you to eat with them, and above all, remember, what they will set before you is probably the meal for the whole family, so take a little of every thing they serve so as not to offend them, ...very, very little, and remember, ...after you leave, the parents, the grandparents, maybe an aunt or uncle or two, all of the dirty faced kids that were poking you and tugging on your shirt to see if you are a real live American, and probably a niece or nephew and maybe a few cousins will eat the leftovers after you leave, ...third, do you speak the language, ...if not, definitely by a couple of basic tourist foreign language books for the country you are going to and a couple of English-to their language dictionaries, ...you'll find you will be able to communicate with them and they will be eager to help you, you will find living with the locals you will be forced to learn their language and..., all of their slang and local idioms that is much better than learning in the States because they would never teach that there. I guess most important is what my pastor taught me, ...you can't teach someone unless first they know, by experience, you love them, ...one of the life verses the Lord gave me in the beginning is, ...no greater love for someone is laying down your life for them John 15:13, ...so be prepared to live with them, ...serve them, don't be shocked or condemn them for their pagan culture, remember, they are lost and don't know any better, you're being sent as THE Light in a dark country, ...just tell them you are a born again child of the Most High God (they probably worship many deities), and tell them you can't participate with them because that would offend your God, THE Most High, Almighty God, Creator of Heaven and Earth, ...here in Tahiti their most high god, their Creator is called Te Atua, ...when I told them, ..because they called on the lesser deities, ...Te Atua is my God, they became all excited and wanted to know more, remember: Let your speech be always with grace, having been seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one. Col 4:6 The two key words are Grace and Salt, ...most Sunday School kids in my church back in the States know more about the Word than they will probably ever learn in their lifetime, so don't try and teach doctrine, just tell them Jesus loves them, all the while serving them to be a real live example of the Love of Christ to them, then little by little give them the Gospel, above all, don't expect any instant conversions, remember, you're an American and they will want to be like you so they'll say anything to do that, ...make doubly, triply sure they understand their lost sinful state and need for repentance before you consider anyone truly born again, also, because of that, don't be frustrated there aren't any quick results, ...remember, ...all we can do is bring Christ to men, it's God who brings men to Christ. Actually, the most important, ...I know I already said that, it's just there are so many important things, ...the most important thing is, ...are you ready to give up America, become naturalized, if it's possible, and stay with your people for the rest of your life on this planet???????? I know it's tough brother, ...that's why I asked you if you are 100% certain, beyond a shadow of doubt, no one can say anything to talk you out of it, ...that Father is calling you to go there.... Father sent one Apostle, His Son, ...Jesus sent out twelve apostles (apostle in the New Testament just means someone that is sent) and there is no recorded record they ever returned to Jerusalem, ...and the Holy Spirit has sent hundreds of apostles out all over this world, ...be certain you are one of them... Bro, the reason I'm telling you this is one of the first questions the locals asked me was, "When are you leaving, when are you going back to America?" You are going to learn very quickly the locals do not have any concept of what true love is, ...before I left the States Father placed His love for the Tahitian people in my heart, so, in serving them you will come to have a loving relationship with them, ...you will be their example of what love is, ...you will be teaching them how to love and they will start loving you back, ...so you see why I ask are you committed for the rest of your life, how could we leave and hurt the ones we have fallen in love with, how could we be so cruel to hurt them in that way, ...does that shed some light on why Father hates divorce, ...if we were to come and establish a loving relationship with the locals and then leave after a few years, ...wouldn't that be the same as a divorce? This is becoming too long, please feel free to ask any and as many questions you might have. Lord bless
  12. Brother, really? And He said to me, Solomon your son shall build My house and My courts, for I have chosen him to be My son, and I will be his Father. 1 Chro 28:6 Take heed now, for Jehovah has chosen you to build a house for the sanctuary. Be strong and do it. And David gave to his son Solomon the pattern of the porch, and of its houses, and of its treasuries, and of its upper rooms, and of its innermost rooms, and of the place of the mercy-seat, and the pattern of all that he had by the Spirit, of the courts of the house of Jehovah, and of all the rooms all around the treasuries of the house of God, and of the treasuries of the holy things; And for the divisions of the priests and the Levites, and for all the work of the service of the house of Jehovah, and for all the vessels of service in the house of Jehovah; even gold by weight for things of gold, for all instruments of every kind of service; silver for all the vessels of silver by weight, for all vessels every kind of service; and by weight for the lampstands of gold, and for their lamps of gold, with the weight of each lampstand and its lamps. And he gave for the lampstands of silver by weight, for the lampstand and for its lamps, according to the use of each lampstand; and by weight gold for the tables of the showbread, for every table; silver for the tables of silver; and pure gold for the flesh-hooks, and the bowls, and the cups; and for the golden basins by weight for each basin, and by weight for each basin of silver; and the altar of incense refined gold by weight, and gold for the pattern of the chariot of the cherubs, who spread out their wings, and covered the ark of the covenant of Jehovah. All was in writing from the hand of Jehovah. He made me understand all the work of this pattern. 1 Chro 28:11-19 Sounds to me like God was very specific and detailed about how He wanted His Temple built. But, but, but, ...he's in the Genealogy of Jesus Christ... And Solomon fathered Rehoboam, and Rehoboam fathered Abijah, and Abijah fathered Asa. Matt 1:7 A non-believer in the Genealogy of the Messiah? Brother, he's recorded as one of the faithful elders in the great hall of Faith: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. By faith we understand that the ages were framed by a word of God, so that the things being seen not to have come into being out of the things that appear. Heb 11:1-3 And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jephthah; also David, and Samuel and the prophets, who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, Heb 11:32, 33 God the Holy Spirit inspired the writer of Hebrews to right that for us to read, understand and appropriate into our hearts by faith, ...I don't see how it could be any more clearer than that. Lord bless
  13. Beloved brother, ...how 'bout these? Samson and David record in the hall of Faith, And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jephthah; also David, and Samuel and the prophets, Heb 11:32 Solomon wrote Proverbs, ...quoted 22 times in the New Testament, ...which gives credence to Ecclesiastes and the Song of Solomon, ...can we say or think Father used an unsaved, nonbeliever to write three books of the Old Testament ? Lord bless
  14. Beloved sister, google Evangelist Paul Cain, a man used by God, even tho he struggled with alcohol and homosexuality, ...he even wrote a letter confessing his sins before he died. Also google Lonnie Frisbee, who God used to bring 100's if not 1,000's of the hippies to saving knowledge in Jesus during the Jesus People Movement who was a self admitted homosexual. Then back to the Word, ...what about Samson, David, ...Solomon, with his 500 wives and 300 concubines? Dear one, God's ways are not our ways and His thoughts and not our thoughts: For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall My word be that goeth forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. Isa 55:8-11 Father can use any man or woman He wants to, He even used a donkey, ...true we, the born again children of God, are called to live a Holy lifestyle, it's the work of the Holy Spirit to sanctify us and conform us into the image of His beloved Son, Jesus Christ, ...the first part is God's Sovereignty and the second part is man's responsibility and we will never be able to reconcile these two things, ...an infinite God with our finite human intellect, ...may I humble suggest as your caring brother, ...rather than be drawn in by these controversial subjects that only cause division and confusion in the Body of Christ, that you have a Bible reading plan, like some of the prominent sisters here at Worthy that correctly teach the Word of God, ...that enables you to read through your Bible in one year, and continue doing so until the Lord takes you home, ...the revelation of spiritual Truth only comes from Father through prayer and the Holy Spirit: But the Anointing (Holy Spirit) which you received from Him abides in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as His Anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true and no lie, and as He has taught you, abide in Him. 1 Jn 2:27 Lord bless beloved
  15. Beloved brother, ...I wanna see you post the verse in the Word of God that uses the words hyper grace that you so often refer to as being false... Lord bless
