There are some on here that need to revisit Jesusās Sermon on the mound and allow the Holy Spirit to teach them a few lessons on real Christian love and what it actually means. Jesus warned not to hate our enemies and brethren. For one thing it sets us up to be judged by God when we stand in judgment of others and say all kinds of evil against them. And hatred in the heart leads to other things including murder. An example of this in recent news: A man dressed as a FedX driver, went to the home of a known woman Federal Judge and killed her son and wounded her husband. She happened to be in the basement at the time. The reason for the attack, he hated feminists and that included his own mother and we know that because he had written on social media his thoughts on the matter. Killed himself later. Extreme, not really as I have witnessed the same thing without the attack physically, just mentally.
Thank you, John Uk, I actually meant for Godās blessings be upon you and peace from God throughout this day. Thereās a song I love called,ā One Day at a Time.ā I have a tape that I listen to when Iām doing my daily walk. One day at a time, dear Jesus, thatās all Iām asking of you. Yesterdayās gone, sweet Jesus and tomorrow may never be mine, so teach me to take one day at a time. During this plague it has given me much peace to do this. This forum is a good place to be with fellowship among the brethren even when we donāt always agree, we learn from each other. You have always done that for me ever since I started on here years ago.Thanks again for the inspiration to face who knows what today š
Good morning, everybody. Pray for the Lordās blessings to be on you and you are a light to those in darkness. The church I attend is open and our pastor preached by live streaming to those who for different reasons cannot attend. His message one Sunday was basically that we need the fellowship and he is not afraid of catching virus and dying so he carries on with faith and using common sense. SSCLASS opens this month but leaves the decision to attend with the ones that are comprised with health issues. I noticed the Billy Graham thread closed after only 48 comments but another is still open after 200
Hi JohnUk, I agree because to me its pretty close to what Paul encountered at Corinth so many idols and one unknown to cover all bases. Billy Graham being the humble man he was would not have wanted a statue put up to honor him. He always pointed to Christ and Christ alone as the way to salvation.
I am still in the elder older woman age group that should be teaching the younger women and I have done some of that as well. Thanks, for your kind words which is like being refreshed with a cup of cold water after working all day in the hot sun. Make God bless you and keep you safe, Dr Tim
By the way, I am 79 and thanks for being a Christian friend, Tim,and bringing some laughter on here to break the tension. At one time I wondered if I even should be commenting on here because I am a woman. I have had to be the spiritual leader in my family and have the responsibility of praying, reading Bible Stories and taking 4 children to church. They are all grown now with children of their own that was taken to church by them. God has been good to me and helped me through the years of good times and times of trials. Canāt complain.
Lady Bug, correcting your Opinion of what the error is and how you see it and your beliefs that differ from mine which is fine with me because I belong to Christ, filled with the Holy Spirit who is my teacher, guide, counselor and paralegal.
Hi Frank, actually Sermon Audio would say something about Franklin and Billy in a way that brought out the good they were doing and then whoever would bring an attack on them and then I would say what a blessing they have been to me all the years Iāve known them and simply gave my opinion which brought on a very heated discussion on the forum and I was personally attacked. Just got tired of defending my beliefs and opinion on different issues.
Good morning, Dr Tim. So refreshing to have your voice on here, I used to enjoy commenting but the attacks got a little too much for me personally. Your comments on here have been a blessing , gave me a good start for my day.
Gay, you can see my pastor live on your computer every Sunday at 10:30. First they have a few members of the choir singing then he preaches and his sermons are very encouraging during this storm we are all in. www.fbctexarkana.org I have had depression also and know the pain and suffering you go through. Blessings and prayers.
Thatās what we are doing now since our church has closed itās doors. Pastor streamlining his sermons and one SS Class is teaching by same method. We call and keep in touch. God is still in control and using this time to get the attention of the world just as he did Jonah who was fleeing from God in a ship headed away from the place God wanted him to be preaching to the most wicked people on earth at the time. He went through a lot but obeyed and preached and they repented by fasting and prayers and were spared coming judgement. It was a witness to the sailors on the ship that were praying to their gods to no effect and Jonah admits it was his God and to throw him overboard and storm ceased and they were able to see the reality of his God as true God. Preached past Sunday by our pastor.
Hi JohnUk, I agree totally that it happened at 9/11 just as you said, lots of prayers and church attendees but no repentance and very soon a falling away. Back to same lifestyle only worse as we see now. Things will only worsen as we near the end times. My son works in the hospital and is now home waiting to be tested as 2 in his group have tested positive for the cononavirus. Prayers that he will test negative Fri.
Appreciate the prayers, Dr Tim.This is an amazing virus and children have the least chance of catching it and usually they are the most vulnerable. We will be carrying on as usual. Prayers for your Church as well. The fish might pay more attention as the world as we know it falls apart around them.
The church I attend, had a fire break out in the Media room on second floor. Thankfully it happened after service and only a few left to do whatever they had to do. A loud boom was heard and smoke filled the Church. Service for this Sunday is still on but held in gym and atrium. Two services one at 8:30 and another at 10:30( like itās done at Easter) sure hope I didnāt offend anyone with that comment. Wednesday service at the Sullivan Conference Center. The sanctuary will have to be gutted and totally rebuilt and taking many months. So strange how this virus has brought the whole world to its knees. All attention going to the coronavirus and stopping it.I didnāt even have to spell it, just popped up on my spell words.
Appreciate input on what is happening in the Uk. I support his ministry and so does our church. They get thousands of shoeboxes together to send to children in war torn countries and some are even going to different places set up to pack and mail them. Our world is in turmoil and something is going on that only a certain few are seeing like you said, There will always be that remnant that is aware enough to see it. Dr. Tim, you are so right about the individuals that complain about his salary. Movie stars are idolized and no matter how wicked earns even more money as they spend it on their drugs and mansions and supporting the evils of the Democratic Party. How many support these people with their money as well as sports figures and thatās fine with me as long as we donāt condemn the people that are true to God and doing his work. Billy Graham and his family lived in a small house in the Carolina mts. and was gone for months at a time carrying Godās word and message to the nations. They were simple people (Ruth being a Christian and wonderful homemaker for her family). Thanks for your imputes and your sense of humor, which my family and I have as well. Have a blessed day yāall (sorry canāt seem to shake that ole country gal accent)! Prayers for my truck driver son that has
I just got my monthly newsletter from Franklin Graham and on the envelope it said;Itās Spiritual Warfare In the UK God hasnāt called us to sit back and be quiet. In the newsletter he wrote āIām not afraid of opposition. Weāre not canceling anything. Weāre Coming.ā Also said,āI will never sit back quietly and let the government-or any other power-silence the church and prevent the preaching of Godās Word. Just wanted to give what he said And not what some disgruntled, jealous individuals with their links of disgruntled, jealous individuals that love nothing more than to tear apart the very people God has called to go out into the world preaching the gospel and making disciples. He also mentioned that many thousands of U.K. Christians are praying for him at this time of unprecedented and unwarranted discrimination and persecution via effectively withdrawing free speech...A brother named Gerard emailed that to him. Franklin asking for continued prayer every day before the Graham Tour begins in May 2020.
