  1. You got it Traveler. 100% Everyone else missed it, but you got it nailed. Is that what you are looking for? Except what if you are not? What if you missed it? What if the Christ showed up here-- right here, right now and told you (and everyone else) that they missed the boat, the timeline, the signs, and the very arrival? Well-- predictably the church would shout-- Heretic! False! Antichrist! -- and leave no room for having missed it all..... which is exactly what happened btw, when He arrived in a manger.
  2. Okay-- that was just plain funny.
  3. Without a paper trail of any kind detailing that it was gifted to your mother and then to you, you're probably not on very solid ground to be real. The better standing is as a resident/tenant (whether you actually pay any rent or not) you are still a tenant on the land your grandmother owns, and staying there with her consent. You can't be summarily tossed out without an eviction process. The larger problem is your extended situation with your sibling relationships. This will require real effort and communication to resolve and though you've stated that it's hard to talk to them, why don't you consider writing them a personal letter explaining your feelings about the whole situation? You express yourself here beautifully. Pray and ask God for the wisdom and words to best convey your feelings and seek reconciliation and healing in your family. This might be the quickest, easiest path requiring a humble acknowledgment of your circumstances and personal helplessness. God is mighty-- ask Him for help. "...Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth." Ps 121 Lastly- if you truly don't feel safe in the environment, you NEED to change it. Ask to speak to a social services counselor (social worker). This is what they do. If you convey that it is a safety concern they are required to get involved. They cannot and will not ignore it. Another way to change your environment is to ask for the strength and courage to step out on your own. As I mentioned you communicate quite well electronically-- there are many work from home job opportunities available in areas such as customer service, online support services, order entry, and a myriad of computer-based avenues that might provide an avenue for you to escape the limitations of your SSI benefits as your primary source of financial stability. You said you have friends elsewhere that love and support you, maybe it's time to move away from the circumstances that have you feeling trapped and vulnerable. May God grant you wisdom in dealing with such difficulties.
  4. discipler777-- and along with this, don't they anticipate a forerunner? An Elijah to precede the messiah they expect to arise from among them?
  5. Welcome Sunbeam-- Worthy goals!
  6. If you are still living in the property you have many rights as a resident-- meaning that you can't be evicted without proper notice by whoever owns the property now that your mom has passed. I'm assuming that your Grandmother owns the property? She would be the only one who could take eviction actions against you and make you move. Did your mom have a will detailing whatever assets she might have in her estate? You should research the deed on the mobile home and/or land and see if your mom had ownership. As one of her daughters you may also have rights of survivorship as an heir. If she never owned the property you need to have a conversation with the owner (your Grandmother?) to see what she states your status to be. That's where I'd start.... with Grandma. I pray something positive comes out of it for you.
  7. Thank you George— your background? How difficult was it to learn and get started?
  8. Hi George— I have rather boring, technical questions. What platform does your forum operate on? Is it something you developed, or something you bought? Do you have an IT background that enabled you, or have you been able to learn as you go? I ask because I have an interest in creating a discussion site for our church growth groups (life groups). Thanks in advance if you are willing to share your experience.
  9. Not following your point douge. The distinction is between those with ears to hear and those with hard hearts. Jew or Gentile makes no difference. He sent out the 12 not to Gentiles, but to the lost sheep of Israel. He then teaches crowds with no differentiation, but for all. He taught by the lake as well as in the synagogues. He taught in parable to reveal long hidden truths given Him by the Father. All- Jews and Gentiles alike were non-believers, until they believed.

    New here

    Hello Dolly (well someone had to say it!) I'm new here too. How did you find this site? What brought you here?
  11. Nice discussion! “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. 24 Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. 25 Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me." (John 12) The cross is what changed everything. Even those that walked with Him and witnessed all that He said and did, did not understand until after He was glorified. Only then did they go back and search the scriptures making the associations between Jesus and what the prophets had written. The resurrection propelled the message as they fulfilled the command to go into all the world--- from one seed, many. From one flame, many lights.

    Hello

    Hello! New here also.... so far so good!
  13. Thank you, each one. See you all around the forum.
  14. Read the story beginning in Luke 23 and then you will remember.
  15. Is there any sub forum here, dedicated to dreams and the understanding of them? Were it not for dreams there would be no scripture to speak of.
