  1. A blog or website or joining a forum are all ways to cement authority and gain acceptance of this idea (of punishing the wrong doer or at the least warning people to be concerned). Books are a whole different animal. I realize the difference is not evident, but try writing a book versus just communicating your feelings in a post. One takes all your energy and motivation the other takes away nothing. A few people can pull off a book if they do it every day as a living already. For the rest of us it takes a certain level of vain-ness to get the job done. Something we should avoid.
  2. Yes. There is some judgement going on. We live in human form that stores such crises away in our cellular memory. Our bodies are truly temples. The feeling that a warning must be given is just a way to keep these memories. I would say the damage is extensive to your mental stability. You have to decide if working on forgiveness is of value or keeping the memories intact is instead. No one would judge you for seeking forgiveness rather than issuing a public response. Which do you value? Forgiveness or public accord.
  3. I do not think having worry in your life is a concern unless it prevents you from having a relationship with God. Does it? I was filled with worry last week about a detail in my life. It was not so easy to overcome, as I was certain that this worry was real. It was something I have prayed about regularly. Then suddenly it hit me, I actually no longer had this problem. The problem I thought I had was in fact in the middle of resolving itself, but I was so wrapped up in my concern, I stopped paying attention to reality. It is almost like I had lost my faith in God to some extent. God was telling me to stop worrying, that he had a handle on things, but I was too caught up in my concerns, to listen. Thank goodness, I finally caught myself and yes, it was an effort of will to stop myself caring. Psalm 34:4 "I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears."
  4. What do you mean regarding the woman of Rev. 12 and her offspring have desolation brought against them? I see in Rev. 12 that she is chased by a flood and is hidden away from satan-dragon. Her children, are chased by the dragon then. "The Woman Persecuted , KJV, Rev. 12: 15-17 …15 Then from the mouth of the serpent spewed water like a river to overtake the woman and sweep her away in the torrent. 16 But the earth helped the woman and opened its mouth to swallow up the river that had poured from the dragon’s mouth. 17 And the dragon was enraged at the woman, and went to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus. And the dragon stood on the sand of the seashore.…" end quote Berean Study Bible "
  5. Yes, been praying that these new state laws never pass regarding third trimester abortions! They are an abomination! Period. And every Christian needs to stand up and be counted now in those states and exert what influence they have if outside of them. Your prayers matter now!!
  6. Wondered that too. What happens to the saints who died (what we call 'saints' is another question) before Christ resurrection? Rev. 20:4 states the Saints (rise again and) take thrones. Other verses in Revelation state that that the dead in Christ will rise again, but in 1,000+ years (Rev. 20:5-6*). *"The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years." I always assumed (do not know) that the prophets pre-resurrection are some of these Saints that rise.
