  1. Daily Reading 68 If you prefer, you can look up the following verses in your own Bible, or by whatever means and in whichever version you choose. Matthew 12:22-50 Leviticus 15-16 Proverbs 27 Audio 6:41 Audio 4:59 Audio 2:43 The above verse addresses are linked to Bible Gateway. That is an easy way to read (or listen to) the Bible verses, and choose your version. Personally, I prefer written, that way I can go at my own pace, and think about it, before moving on. Nothing wrong with doing either or both. The Bible says faith comes by hearing. See the picture below to get an idea of what to expect if you follow the above links. Note: The audio will not play the exact verses, it will play the whole chapters, in which the verses exist. Thank you Lord for making the your word so accessible for us in these times. Amen
  2. I would like to thank all of you you have been sending well wishes to my Mother, or praying for her. She is back home from the hospital now. She still isn't feeling the greatest, but she is on the mend!
  3. Just a quick not to let you all know ... My mother has now been moved out of the Critical Care Unit (ICU), and into a less-critical part of the hospital. Still no word on when she will be back home! ~Mark Harvey
  4. I just thought I would let you all know ... My mother is still in hospital. She is still in the Critical Care Unite (ICU). It turns out, she caught pneumonia, and they believe that that was what caused her heart rate to accelerate so much. But, most important of all, she is, slowly but surely, getting better and better! On behalf of all of us, I thank you all for your continuing prayers! :-)O
  5. I will give you all a brief update about my Mom, Evelyn Harvey. She is still in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the hospital. She is being fed through a feeding tube, and she is breathing through a breathing tube. It is my understanding that those are just intended to be temporary measures, and the hope is that she will eventually be able to eat and breathe normally again. I was with her in the hospital for the better part of the day yesterday (January 2nd). Overall, she was looking much healthier yesterday, and her heart rate was much better, than the day before (January 1st.) I would appreciate for all of you to keep praying for her to have a full recovery. If that be God's will, of course! I thank you all, in love. ~Mark Harvey
  6. On the morning of New Year's Eve, I had to call 911 for my mother. The ambulance took her to the hospital. At one point , her heart was racing so fast, that they had to use those electric paddles to shock her heart to slow it down.They are treating her condition as Congestive Heart Failure.She is still in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), at this point.I and my brother and my "sister-in-law" spent the better part of the day, on New Year's Day, with my mom in the hospital. I didn't get to bed until about 11:30 last night.My mom's condition (as of the time that I, personally, left the hospital) was serious, but stable. This morning, while I was talking with my brother on the telephone, he told me that they had inserted some kind of a breathing tube into her, so that she could breather more easily and sleep better I think she is probably going to recover, but with these kinds of things, we just don't know for sure, with these kinds of things.I would appreciate your prayers about this, for my mother (first and foremost), but also for my brother, Tony, and my "sister-in-law", Arelene, and for myself. Thank you all in advance for your prayers! In Jesus, Mark Harvey
  7. I am a 21 year old University student and in a dilemma. My parents met in church. It's a fact I've always liked. My mom has always been very open with me about everything ever since I can remember. when I was 2.5 she went abroad to work in a different country so that we could earn more money becasue the eastern european country i was living in really did not have good living conditions. I stayed there with my relatives, grandparents and aunt. My dad is a storng believer and although he also lived there he never really took care of me so I don't know what it's like to have a real father daughter bond. My mom didn't completely vanish, she was doing it all for me and came back every 3 or 6 months to see me. However, family friends about my mom's age have told me that when I was about 4, I used to go up to them and say things like: "you're my mother" and I remember getting attached to them very easily, which is weird by itself. when I was about 6 my mom took me with her, she got a divorce form my dad who never worked and never helped around the house or anything, and I've been living with her ever since. until I went to University two years ago, but still spend quite a bit of time living with her and her now boyfriend over the holidays. My mom used to tell me about God ever since I can remember. And although I have always firmly believed in Him and known about him I somehow did not want my mom to be the one telling me things about God. I know it sounds awful, but even when I was very little i can remember her wanting to stop talking about it, I did pray and believe in God but it felt like something so private to me, and something blocked me from talking to my mom about God. When I went to highschool I had an incredible teacher, who i was really interested in for some reason, only to find out later that she too was a believer. We got on really well and she would talk to me about God and i loved it. My teacher's parents and 6 siblings are all strong believers and they are such a wonderful family, and i kin of wish i had a family like that too. I loved talking to my teacher about God and was so happy she was a Christian too. She was the one who started calling me BatZion too, and I can tell she really cares about me. She does not have any children of her own and sometimes she can get quite protective of me. After graduation she started taking me to different churches around town, also with her family and it was so nice. My mom, although a believer, somehow doesn't go to church, so i've never been in a very church going family. I went to university abroad, and really enjoyed my independence. I'm a girl who has always been very independent because i don't have any siblings and it's always been just my mom and me. I like dancing when i go out with friends but I don't get drunk at all. I get really good grades and speak 5 languages, so i'm very studious. When i went to university it was so easy to go to church, becuase i could do whatever I wanted, my mom was not there and did not know every little thing I did, and i kind of enjoyed it, even though i do like spending time with her when i'm around her. Whenever I'm home however, going to church is quite a struggle. I don't really have any church going friends my age at home. And there is my teacher who i sometimes go to church with, but whenever I know that my mom knows I am going to church, I feel so blocked, it's like I really can't deal with her even knowing i go to church. I just somehow want it to be a thing I do and talk about with other people. Today it was so bad, i was getting ready to go to church and really wanted to, but my mom was home and she asked where I was going and whether I was going to church, so i somehow ended up not going, because i just wanted to go without her knowing. I know this sounds so weird, and there surely must be something wrong in this? It's so nice to see whole families going to church together, why can't I be open about it with my mom and why do i find it so strange to go to church with her? have any of you had similar experiences or are any of you parents whose kids act similarly and how do you deal with it? Sorry for the really long post but would be great to hear from some of you! Thank you!
  8. Im from india. Most of us are hindus here.. My mom is going to church though.. She converted to christianity before my birth.. I will tell a bit of my history so that you can see any connections(if any) for my problems and my history.. Mom is christian, dad converted but again gone back to hinduism. They both had a row, dad left. It s 5 yrs now since i last saw him. I was non-believer until recently i sensed and experienced jesus christ. It all started when my best friend(already kidney transplanted) got a lung infection. Doctors told that he will die within a week. A prayer meeting was conducted in his house especially regarding his health. We prayed well past midnight and suddenly sensed fear and spirits. I prayed harder. Then i sensed a relief wash through me, holy spirit coming into me for the first time.. Almost speaking in my ears "I will fight for you". Then one week later, my friend was back home. Doctors couldnt find what affected him( they dont know what, but his lungs were funny) and couldnt find how he got well.. Next week, i went to the church with my friend (a CSI church, my mom goes to AG). Again, i sensed the holy spirit washing through me. I dont know why, but i commited my life to jesus that moment, saying " O lord, u lead my way". Well, it was then the trouble started. My girlfriend broke with me. I was devastated. She was like we are from different religions blah blah blah... Her parents wont allow. She knew all this before she said yes. Then i dug a little deeper and i found that my angel has been cheating on me for 2 months and want to end the double play now, choosing the other guy over me. Leaving for parents, ok. But for another guy? I was depressed, mad. I tried talking to her. She turned a blind eye. Then i did something which i dont regret, but not proud of. I tried to talk to her one last time, she pretended i didnt exist. I picked a blade and cut my wrists open, hoping to die. I did this in our school(Im in final year, 12th grade). The school executives found out about this. Instead of giving consuling, they kicked me out. My mom was devastated. I joined a tutor. But that tutor was 30 miles away from my home. And he was lame. I explained this to my mom, saying i will study better from home instead of wasting energy travelling 30 miles up and down everyday. She was reculent at first, but she gave in. Now im registered in open schooling. Wow what a mother i get everything i wish for. The next problem, career choice. I want to do ministry. A full time ministry. I already gave word to god that i will be his son spreading his word. I will join a bible college and do bachelor of theology. But my mom want me to do engineering. She says i can do ministry after completing engineering. But that wont work. We are not-that-rich family. If im to do engineering, we would have to take a loan. So after completing i would have to give back the money. I have to work hard. No time for ministry. Secretly, i know for a fact that she hates the idea of me doing ministry. We had rows about this. We still do. Then I sort of became like worn out always, easily gets tired, angry on everyone, dont wanna go to church( but i managed to go to church somehow) I googled about all this, as all teenagers would do when they want answers, it said like new christians face these kind of problems coz satan is not going to give you away that easy. Ok, so the struggle is in spiritual level.. Then came the dream. Yesterday night i had a dream. It was like meeting a old friend and then some other dream interrupted this one. I was in my school, going to my class. My principal refuses to let me in. On my way back, i meet my VP, she asked "has your mom returned from varanasi?". This is odd. She knows we are christians. Varanasi is a holy place for hindus where they do all kind of worship and stuff. I told that we are christians, why would my mom go to varanasi? She told that my mom only was saying that she is going to go there. Suddenly my mom comes there. I ask my mom about this varanasi thing. She tells she indeed went. I was shocked. What she told next shocked me more. She told that during her visit to varanasi she found that someone has done witchcraft against our family, that is the reason for all the hardships. She told she removed the witchcraft by those hindu saints and done witchcraft on the one who did to us. I was bewildered. I shouted at my mom. I asked her to bring the witchcraft she had done to someone( i dont know why i did that). She brought a metal sheet with symbols and things. I cant believe what i did next. I examined the sheet and found that my mother's name(possibly mine also. I cant remember clearly) is on the sheet instead of the one who she summoned the spirits against. My mom was bewildered when i told her that she was done witchcraft to herself and me. She tried to prove me wrong but there was no mistaking the names written on the sheet. She was lost for words. I shouted at her. I even slapped her 2 or 3 times(i never slapped my mom before). I accused her of all my losses(my gf, my school, my friends, most importantly my peace). She just stand there. Then she becomes a sort of depressed mental "I myself, I myself" right before my eyes. I woke up, sweating all over. My heart beats like i have just ran a mile. I checked my phone. 3:35 am. I saw a film in which they told like demon spirits are strong in 3 am and holy spirit in 3 pm blah blah, after all a film. But this striked my mind. So i concluded this was a trick of satan to break relationship with my mother. But i couldnt sleep. Today, i told my friend(same kidney transplanted friend) about this. He told his mom about this. His mom was in sweats in seconds. Then she told " Lord is real. His mom was telling me she was indeed going to do witchcraft against him. Not to destroy him but to control him." My mom even told about the ritual. It consisted of doing satanic worship against me, making witchcraft against me, making me drink some potion(mixed with milk) and things. When all is over. I would be under total control of my mom. She finally said " Lord revealed what is going around him. Lord is real." She said she wanted to warn me of this, but was afriad my mom would do witchcraft against her. According to her, the process started 10 days ago. The time i started to feel worn out, anger, dont go to church feelings. So this adds up. Now what should i do? First of all, i cant believe it. My mom. A christian. One who wouldnt miss a sunday mass, do witchcraft? Against her own son? I cant believe it. But all things point otherwise. Im not worried about me. Im under my lord. He will protect me. He will fight for me, as he promised. Im worried about my mom. This is bad, no , this is evil. If im to do ministry, i should start by saving my mom from hell. But how? If it is someone else, i would go for a straight talk. Im always straight forward. But this is my mom. I cant do straight talk. I got an idea. I can call my mom's church pastor and tell these to him, asking him not to reveal i told this, making it look like lord told the pastor about my mom. Tell him to advise my mom. I know this is a bit cheating and asking a pastor to tell a downright lie. But what else can i do? Im worried this plan can go horribly wrong. My town AG church got a bad reputation coz of the pastor, lets just say he s not that good person(thats why i go to different church with my friend). He can misunderstand me and accuse my mother of witchcraft openly. He could tell my mom the truth that i told this and i know about all this. This could go horribly wrong in many ways. I said my situation and a bit of my history(so that u could find connections, i couldnt). Your own ideas and opinion on my idea are greatly welcomed and appreciated. I dont want to push it. But it s sort of urgent. The process started 10 days ago. I could be eating a demon portion mixed dinner. I could be falling into my mom's control even as i type. Im sure lord will protect me. But witchcraft is not good for health. I already feel worn out. Post a reply and pray for me, Amen.
  9. Hello, First of all I want to say hi I am new at the forum. I really need advice and help from other Christians in a situation that's been a problem for me since I was a little girl. I'll try to make this post as short as possible. I've always had problems with my mom. She has always been very immature and irresponsible. I remember being 5 years old and thinking about how immature she was when she had tantrums against my grandmother, who practically raised me. My parents were both teenagers, but my dad has always been more responsible. My mom wanted to "live life" and enjoy youth so it was my dad and mostly my grandma who took care of me. During this time my mom was very irresponsible and had a lot of boyfriends..one of this relationships resulting in a pregnancy and we never saw the dad again, we live in a small town, so it was scandalous. My mom and I lived with my grandmother until I was 5 when my mom remarried and my stepdad took my brother as his. I was physically hurt by both my mom and stepfather, my stepdad used to hurt me a lot emotionally I still struggle with those things. Until my teenage years I was an excellent student, I earned a lot of awards and my mom was never there, she became addicted to her job, she left the house before 6am and got home after 10pm. During all this time I was very active at church and even a leader at teenager spiritual retreats. What I mean is, that instead of going rebel I became model child. This didn't stop my mom beating me for me getting a B or just being mad and me thinking it was unfair. I went back to live with my grandma. During all this time my mom kept on having more children... none of which she made the time for. She has never been maternal,still she kept on having more and more kids. For all my life I've always been closer to boys than girls. A therapist told me it was because of my relationship with my mother I didn't trust women. I saw women being promiscuous and emotionally hurting my male cousins and it gave me emotional breakdowns, I wondered if I was the only woman on Earth to not be a bad person or use my body and sex to manipulate others. It still gets me nervous to see girls showing skin on social network. At age 20 I moved with my boyfriend who had also been one of my closest friends since I was 14. We weren't married since he was an atheist and I stopped going to church. We had a lot of problems and he didn't want to go to couple counseling or anything else. We also had a son during this time. Thank God, in 2013 and my then boyfriend now husband accepted Jesus as his savior and is now an amazing man and leader at our Church. He loves to serve God and other through our Church. We got married. I have been blessed. Still... my husband's conversion to Christianity came along with the confession of things I didn't yet know that he did through our relationship. Like him talking to other women on social media during years... one of which he had sex with. Even though my husband has done everything a woman could ask to rebuilt the relationship, I know I will never fully heal, and this made my feelings against promiscuous women a lot worse. Do not get me wrong, I know it was my husband who failed me, but since I had the repulsion for seek attention, promiscuous women... and then seeing the woman... that was it. As I said, I just cant stand the look of a woman showing her bodyon social media , offering themselves and trying to get married men, etc. It was my mom all over again. I now link these women to that woman my husband had an affair with and my mom. About 5 years ago my mom and I seemed to fix our relationship. My stepdad and my mom were going to Church and both were leaders there also. Late last year my stepdad and mom separated. And ever since my mom is back into her old ways. So far she's been with at least 4 men that we know of and is neglecting my brothers. She even asked for my approval for this behavior !!!! I replied with an extense and loving letter telling her to do things right, and telling her how much her behavior had hurt me to this day and that I don;t want my brothers to suffer the same... she never even replied. Not even "ok". She just kept on doing it. My brothers are hurting and are starting to hate her. She comments on my social media pictures saying that i look ugly or that i look like a man.... she makes fun of me all the time about EVERYTHING.... just like an immature teenager. I have nightmares all the time and spend all my evenings crying over my husband's shoulder. So recent as this morning she showed me pictures of yet another guy who my grandma know to be a married man. I had a breakdown today and I talked very nasty against my mom. Not to her directly but other people.I said the most terrible things about her and finally said out loud that I hated her.... I don't know what to do. I know I am not being a good Christian and that I am supposed to honor my mother and father.... but then.... does this mean that my mom can do all kinds of sins and then just ask for forgiveness and God will take her back... but God will not take me because of the terrible things I feel against my mom??? Will I not be saved because of the hurt other people has caused me ?? I've had therapy, they do help, but nothing heals. I KNOW it will never heal. I wish it wasn't so, but is reality I just know myself. I am afraid for my relationship with my mom... I know it wont belong until i have a breakdown every time I see her, it is as if this whole situation activated the way I felt with her when I was very young. I am afraid for my relationship with God... I know God is not proud of my words thoughts and feelings against her. What do I do !? Please help. Thank you.
  10. Please pray for me. With me. For my head is hung in shame as I ask for help. 3 months of bad luck has turned my world upside down. I am just a few short steps away from being homeless and in debt with 2 kids. I need a loan. i have started campaigns for it but I'd much rather borrow and pay back than be given a handout. But I am in desperation and at this Moment, there is little I won't do to keep food in my children's stomachs and a roof over their heads. I have no credit. I've always bought everything up front. No payday loans. No short term loans with 800% interest. Just a loan to be paid off over say a year or so. Or a personal lender to set their own deadlines. I'm desperate at the moment. I've never had to borrow from anybody before. So this is a horrible feeling for me and I'm humiliated by it. More details that won't fit in this. im in need of prayers. I'm in need of advice. And I am desperate for help. I know that I must hold onto faith, but I feel it slipping away. Once prideful, my humility has my head hung in shame as I beg for help and pray I have the strength to hold on to my faith.
  11. I'm less interesting in discussing IBLP/ATI, and/or Bill Gothard. But instead your thoughts on what you think about "listening to the cautions of your wife" from a doctrinal perspective? Is there a balance missing here? Other thoughts on this article? God bless, GE ------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------
