When I got sick as a kid, my mom gave me a spoonful of castor oil. Cure all for every disease even when the doctor came and gavel me other meds?!!. And even when I had pneumonia she still tried to hide it in orange juice because by then I had started refusing to take it no way!! They had a lot of remedies back then that I even used on my kids,minus the castor oil. sometimes.
Mom and her 9 siblings lived long lives and her parents lived to be in their 80s.I have read about soda being a cure all for things. Maybe they are going back to old remedies now.đ¤
I agree with Lurker and others about John McCain not being a true Republican and has been one of those that has made things hard for Trump. He is our President doing the best he can with opposition coming not only from the Dems but from some of his own party. I really believe God put him in power for a reason and needs our prayers. I cringe when I think of Hillary being our president. Is he a perfect man? No, and neither was one of another decorated Navy man Jimmy Carter who admitted to having lust in his heart and we know what Jesus said about that. Another one, Bill Clinton, John Kennedy, Franklin D Roosevelt had a mistress, John Q Adams had a slave girl as his mistress. So yes, he has feet of clay and I stand with him and support him as our President .
I really was saying that about the leading as a âtongue-in-cheek â type thing. Just thought it good that we all thought along the same way.At least I felt it strongly. No big deal at all. God âs blessings and a good night.For me it is bedtime, that is.
Rnel , I have a friend who was never in church or taught about religion and even now so regrets that she missed out and only found God later in her adult life. She dreamed that she was in Hell and it was so vivid and frightened her so much that she gave her life to God, got saved and is devoted to learning the Bible and things of God. God bless you .
I have been reading about men that realized the importance of the power involved in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and how important it is in the life of the Christian, JohnUk. One was AW Tozer . He has a book that is just about his filling and explains in detail the purpose of Baptism in the Holy Spirit. DL Moody another one and Jonathan Edwards, all great men of God. Canât remember all the names but it was an amazing number that wrote about it .No havenât read anything about that but sounds interesting. DL Moody refers in his book Baptism of the Holy Spirit how preachers and others are missing the power that is so needed even back then. The same power that you were talking about. Amazing Grace Yes, we do need a Holy Ghost revival where the fire from heaven falls on the people and souls are saved like in the old days.
I know JohnUk, Dr Tim and me too are not led always to speak by the Spirit âs leading especially when he starts talking about his đ . However it sure beats some leadings on here. I keep thinking where did that remark come from?? The links they keep digging up trying to find one to match the thoughts?? As for me. Well, we wonât go there. I do the best I can and still I step on somebodyâs toes.
Death is destroying all around, in so many forms, and so suddenly, that it is madness not to expect and prepare for the close of life. Matthew Henry So true John Uk and Rnel, instead of them getting all huffy(John Ukâs word which fits well here) and self righteous, they should be on their knees asking Godâs forgiveness for their sins and getting prepared for eternity.
Dr. Tim, your thoughts were apparently coming from the Holy Spirit because we (Wayfarer Pilgrim) and I had the same thoughts. Reminds me of the warnings Jesus gave his followers John 15:18-25. And the last words in 25 says it in a nutshell,âThey hated me without a cause.â
Wayfarer Pilgrim, I was thinking exactly what you just commented. The ones that are living in darkness hates the light because it reveals their sins so they want to destroy that Light. They love their sins more than God. I have read many books by Dodson. He and his wife have been an inspiration to me for years. Never a word of scandal from either one. God bless them for taking a stand against sin.
The color of the ice cream reminds me of picture that a friend put on Facebook (yes I admit I am on there with friends from the town I moved from and new friends Ihave found here) anyway, the picture showed a an aborted baby lying in a small amount of water. Couldnât see his head. A hand was holding the almost developed babyâs tiny hand and arm. The man that did the abortion said (you could read what beneath the photo) quote, this one is big enough to walk me to the store. Doesnât make sense but it was a heartless remark. I can still see the limp gray little hand on the hand that was holding it and will never forget if.And now this !!
Rev1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. Vs4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before His throne. The name of the sermon,âCheck Your Inbox â Write in a book what you see and send it to the seven churches:to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodiceaâ Revelation 1:11 He explained the bad and good in each of these churches that was revealed by John. Brother Jeff âs question to us,âWhat is God saying to us from the letters to the churches? I personally love hearing Revelation preached on. Sermon was very helpful and I still have the notes I wrote down.
What I like is that Franklin doesnât mince words or back off speaking out against evil even if means losing the support of others. We need that now that SBC has messed up with this new President thatâs not good. Our pastor has started preaching about sinful life styles more than he ever has and is losing members (Tares maybe?) because of it. Preaching in Revelation now and last Sunday was on messages to the 4 churches.We are living in some evil times and we need to keep in mind who the real enemy is, amen?? !!
The evil of this world is so rampant that itâs beyond me how anyone could be so blinded as to not see or acknowledge it. ISIS being one of the most evil of all. Like Rip Van Winkle, they must have been asleep during the Hilter regime, Charles Manson reign of terror, Ted Bundy Jack the Ripper, etc Jesus being tempted by Satan in the wilderness as the devil tried to get Jesus to jump off a cliff because the angels would protect him. Jesus answering said unto him âIt is said,Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy Godâ I see these people as tempting God with their actions. As saying God Iâll prove you wrong. Scary and sad as they went on their foolish quest.
Well, allâs forgiven and that makes me feel better that I obeyed God when I realized that I had sinned by my actions and needed to ask forgiveness. To those on here and SA as well. I consider myself a Christian rather than a certain denomination and I started going to a little Baptist Church a few blocks from where I lived as a young girl. I actually walked to church and grew to love the Lord. I have left a few churches and keep feeling that the Baptist ,with all itâs faults , is still where I want to worship. So I do like to hear the thoughts of others and may disagree but thatâs ok also. Love and blessings.
