How is everyone? Im brand new on this site...cant figure out how to reply to peoples comments yet haha...
But ive always been a life long believer, got filled with Holy Spirit in a big way in 2015...
Always have lived a more criminal type of lifestyle, after I got Immersed by the Holy Spirit, I went deep down, lost it all, home, family, dogs got killed, had a lengthy prison sentence hanging over my head, and even commited some serious acts of violence, stole to eat, and panhandled... it took all that chastising, to make me say, I will never go back to that lifestyle again...
Now finally within the last 3 to 4 months ive FULLY gave into Being a Follower of the Word, Thank The Most High!
Now I cld go on all day on How much truly awesome stuff happend that day I got filled with Holy spirit, I was by myself living in a camper doing a Study and was praying allowed, went inside talked to my mom, about a friend that had got shot and killed a day or 2 before, I said I didnt feel it was in His Cards to die like that,, at that moment pure silver appeared out of a card tattoo on my forearm, and I Immediately went into full spirit, and so did my mom, I heard only two things in my head, the sounds of Angels Laughter and a man Yelling HALLELUYAH! My mom, sisters, and dad all witnessed some kind of energy field that surrounded my Body, they said it looked like the kinda Mirage you see off hot black top, I never seen it and never cared to, what I actually felt... just stompped, what they was saying about it haha..
At the end of the Exp. Everyone in the house fell asleep mid day, and my family dont nap lol...but before I fell asleep, I seen a picture of me(in my mind) kinda busting thru the doors of a church, middle service, disrupting with a authority type thing.
All that happend in 2015, Ive now recently been given back everything, and better than before! Praise The Most High.
Now I didnt understand what that light vision meant at all, at that time,..but its been revealed to me over this last year, I got hit with tons of truths concerning the Bible and the Church as a whole.
And I can say its most definitely gonna be "disruptive" to majority of The Church.
That is IF they would like to get off the Industrial train(uncomfortable,not meant for human passengers,but you can still reach your destination) and get aboard The train He has Made for human passengers with a comfortable travel all the way home..
There is really alot of stuff within all this...but one I'd like to touch on first would be Keeping of The Sabbath, Its a very amazing and a sad thing, that very Few Followers actually try to keep the Sabbath,
#1. Its our Law to do so,
#2. Man, I clda really used that amazing self discipline my entire life,which is likea auto blessing that is tied to the Sabbath. Haha
3. The Father Himself sanctified it,made it Holy, and gave it to us as a Gift to his Followers, its a Holy rest he wants us to partake in with him, and its been basically forgotten within the Catholic and Christian churches.
We know this is a important law were supposed to Keep, even when The Messiah was put in the tomb, no visitors came on Sabbath, bc the law and all laws did and still do to this day remain intact, only changes that was done to The Law was sacrificial and ceremonial, yes that means its still not lawful to eat pork, but were not supposed to condemn anyone about what they do or dont eat, your made perfect thru the Messiah, so what you eat isnt 0f great importance anymore, but it is still The Law to not eat any unclean beast, ive searched every scripture concerning the food ordeal lol imma hungry guy.. and its def. Still apart of the law, Just knowone is to be condemned about it, but make no mistake, its a GOOD thing to not even touch those unclean animals, but if you condemn som1 for eating pork or etc.. your good deed will be turned into a evil one...
But Sabbath now thats a different story and its something we all should rejoice in together every week from Friday night to saturday night. And it should be taught to our children, and you should start working on Sundays and Stop working on Saturdays. The word Sabbath means Rest or to cease, Hebrews in new testament explains we should try our utemost to keep that sabbath.
If anyone has any questions for me at all, id enjoy digging into all of this, my question would be how is it, all these life long followers are overlooking so much in the word? Another ex. Paul said I believe in Corinthians it was, that while a man is praying or prophsying, He is NOT to cover his head, and if he does cover his head he dishonors The Messiah, and that a woman IS supposed to cover her head while praying and prophsying and if she dosent, then she dishonors Man..says The head of the woman is man, the head of man is The Messiah and The Head of The Messiah is YHWH or The Father.. replaced with The false title the Lord in most versions.
Here is a thread to build each other up in the faith. "Therefore encourage (comfort) and edify (build one another up), just as you are already doing. (1 Thess 5:11)
Quotes, true stories and poems are all great ways to do this.
I invite you to join with me in sharing uplifting things your brothers and sisters here have previously posted that have been a blessing (especially edifying) to you.
Don't forget to credit the person they came from.
Things by others who are not members (such as people in your life, famous quotes that are inspiring, original stuff)...are all welcome.
Please, no debate-triggering topics or negative posts. We all get enough of that. (Even on the daily news. lol) God bless you.
Food for thought-
Not every discussion has to be a debate. Let's make this thread different and show the world how true 1 Peter 1:22 is: "Now that by your obedience to the truth through the Spirit you have purified yourselves and have come to have a sincere love for other believers, love one another earnestly with all your heart."
"Behold! How they love one another."
One of the most profound comments made regarding the early church came from the lips of a man named Aristides, sent by the Emperor Hadrian to spy out those strange creatures known as "Christians." Having seen them in action, Aristides returned with a mixed report. But his immortal words to the emperor have echoed down through history: "Behold! How they love one another."
When we think of the phrase "using someone", then most of us immediately have the idea of a person who is carnally manipulating someone else. Another way to think of it is "taking advantage" of someone. In Both cases, its wrong. But with God, using Him, is Faith. Let me explain.... Let say you paid $100,000 for your kid to have the opportunity to take up space in a 4 yr Ivy League College, where they'll turn them into a politically corrected Christ Rejecting Socialist the first 2 yrs, then bake them until well done, the final 2 yrs. Now, any College will do this to your child for your money, but those will, most especially. Yet, you paid to USE what they OFFER. So, in this case your using their educational system, is your right, it is what you have paid for, its what you are supposed to do. Sure. Now with God, ... He has paid with the Blood of Jesus, for you to come and use Him. If you are born again, then you have an open door of continual access to God, BECAUSE of what Christ has done for you. God actually sent the Bread Of Heaven down here to Die, so that by purchasing you back to Him with Christ's Blood, <>redeeming you for all eternity<>, you are given full access to God. 24/7, for as long as God lives. Listen, 100 yrs after you are passed from this earth an into God's glorious eternity, you wont even remember that you were here. So, what does it mean to be "Blood bought", and have full access to God? Its means you ALWAYS have full access to God. That's literally what it means to be redeemed. You are redeemed from judgement for your sin, (Hell).... & you are redeemed from the curse of the law, so that the Law is no longer your JUDGE. The Law can't judge the born again, and God won't judge the born again, because JESUS has already been judged and SLAIN....>HE DIED. = THERE IS YOUR JUDGEMENT DO YOU in ETERNITY......It fell on Jesus, on Earth. = The Cross. ITS GONE. !! When the new Testament tells you that Jesus is the Light of the world, and that you have been translated from darkness TO LIGHT, this means you have entered into a brand new eternal identity ("in Christ") and new situation. (New Creation IN Christ). You are now God's. Literally. Bought with a price. And that price is the Blood of Jesus. You are NOT your own. You are under NEW OWNERSHIP.... Jesus's BLOOD paid for you to belong to God, and not just until you mess up again... The Blood of Jesus, is the Grace of God, and where your sin is found, God's Grace is greater then your sin. IT not only covers it, but God does not even remember it. Romans 4:8 goes even deeper into the Revealed Light of Redemption. The Payment for all your sin Who Himself bled on the Cross...... is eternal, because the Blood that paid for your forgiveness is not ordinary Blood. No, its GOD's Blood. Jesus is God... And Jesus shed God's Blood for YOU, which is WHY its an eternal sacrifice... Once and for ALL. Tho, this Holy Redeeming Blood is only APPLIED by God to those who BELIEVE and are Born Again. Jesus said... "YOU MUST be Born again", and His Holy Blood poured out provides the only means that God accepts to accept you, or anyone. Its available to everyone. This SALVATION. This Free Gift of Righteousness. This justification before God, BY Faith...... But, not everyone will BELIEVE. Satan rejected God, because he wanted to be God. The angels that followed Satan, rejected God. Jesus the Christ, IS God. So, Unbelievers down here, CHRIST REJECTORS..... are doing what Satan and his followers did, up there, and the end result is the same for them all. Jesus said that if you do not believe in Him, believe that He alone is the Savior-Messiah, then you will die in your sin. And you'll do more then that. You'll meet God as eternal Judge upon your death, and you'll pay for your Christ Rejection, forever. So, reader, if you have not trusted in Christ, then do it now...... Now. If You will take Christ into you heart right now, then God will take you into His heart, forever...... That God's Promise. God is waiting for you, all your life. He is not Lost, YOU ARE....... So, once God's Redeeming Blood has made you GOD'S Child, His property, His BODY of CHRIST, BORN AGAIN....then as God's Body of Christ, God actually wants you to USE HIM constantly, by Faith. Now lets talk about that... God is Love, and God has a work. His work is to SAVE, HELP, to RESTORE, to BLESS, TO HEAL, and to ENLIGHTEN, all of His Children, and to finally transform them into the very likeness of Jesus The Christ when you meet Him. And allowing God by your Faith to help you, with EVERYTHING, is how you use God. Using God, is to allow Him by you Faith, to do for you what HE LOVES TO DO. As all this is just God manifesting His Love, as all these imputations. as all this HELP. Love, God's love, is God doing for you because He Loves you....... exactly Like He Gave Christ to you as a GIFT. If you are born again, then You already USED His offer, you accessed It, you took advantage of God's Goodness, when you trusted in and believed on Christ, and God Saved you. Using God, is to seek God by faith to do what His Love wants to do for you all the time. When you use Him, you are giving Him the FAITH that He says, pleases Him, and if you don't, you are not pleasing Him as He would want you to do it, constantly. Faith, is using God to give His supply into all your needs and create inside you the God type happiness that He wants you to have, "the Joy of the Lord". All this "riches in Glory" is gained when you by faith, use Him, and He thereby does His heavenly work for you as He WANTS TO DO. God loves to be used for your benefit. He wants to be used by your Faith, as this pleases Him. Be sure you do it.
Very recently, I asked you all for prayer after letting someone I care about go (https://www.worthychristianforums.com/topic/244704-please-pray-for-the-girl-i-care-about-and-me/?tab=comments#comment-3092492).
It's been very hard. I've missed her tremendously, and I've almost constantly questioned my decision. But on Monday, in reading a book for my church small group (What Now? by Hannah Duggan), I (completely unexpectedly) came across the following passage.
I was absolutely shocked and amazed at the timing and relevance of this. I knew it had to be God. This brought me an enormous amount of comfort, and even though I still miss her and worry about her, I know the best thing I can do for her now is to pray for her and trust God with the rest. Maybe God intends for us to come back together sometime in the future, maybe not. Nonetheless, may God's will be done in both our lives.
Thank you all so much for your prayers thus far!

Praise the Lord, hallelujah!
Praise You, God, for your purity and perfection! Praise You Lord, Jesus Christ, for saving me and my testimony! Glory be to You, God, our Father who art in Heaven! Thanks be to the Holy Spirit's comfort, teaching and guidance! All we know, understand, experience and struggle with is for your glory, perfect plan and unquestionable will. I shall not want or crave anything outside of Jesus Christ's way. Let me know if so, let me understand what You want for us is best. May I pick up and carry my own cross, denying myself for You. I worship You as all knowing, powerful and gracious. May I draw closer to You and keep You as top priority in my family's lives. You are first, my family is second and I am here to serve. May I serve you reverently, fully and completely. May there be less of me and more of Jesus Christ instead. Jesus, You are thee only way, light and salvation. All I need is You. God, You take care of the rest. You are in control, God, making and letting everything happen. I am in awe and wonder of your creation. I am eternally grateful, worshipping You and your Son for thee ultimate sacrifice and act of love. This body is your temple, use it as You will. Bend me from my will to yours. It is all about You, everything concerns and relates to You! Yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever, in Jesus Christ's name, amen!
