John Uk, it was a lot of different things going on with me and not physical. I kinda felt useless there for awhile and burdened down mentally and so I feel so much better but still burdened just not letting it affect me to the point I was. I needed to get back on here because I need the fellowship. I donâ€™t think what Billy Graham was called to do was be a pastor either. They are evangelists and go from place to place. They never tell anyone what church to attend, they sow the word and if asked maybe but I do believe the Holy Spirit convicts and woos and leads us just as he did me.Reminds me of the prophets as they preached to the Israelites of their sins of idolatry and coming judgements. I liked Billy Grahamâ€™s preaching more than Franklin but he is doing good works in Christâ€™s name.
I am seeing the same as you Chrisgp from England. Things are only going to get worse for Christians and the world in general as time comes to a close. No surprise, the Bible has already foretold the way it will be and I see the signs as they unfold.
So happy for you that you are no longer a bad boy on the wrong road and I see nothing wrong with watching football, just doesnâ€™t interest me and never has except when my 2 boys played in High School. My daughter played Ist string girls Basketball and later became a coach and I attended most of games she played and coached. Her son,did not play any sports but played in the band at all the games while in High School and now he is youth pastor of his church in Little Rock and I am so proud of him. Different strokes for different folks.
Dr Tim, like you and the poster from my hometown , Allie-Bama( such a southern gentleman) I do not agree with all Trump says ( donâ€™t tell my hubby I said that)or Dr Dodson either because I know they have feet of clay and none will be perfected until we get to heaven. Godâ€™s Grace is the only thing we can depend on to get us there. And having someone like you to keep us from taking ourselves too seriously. And they have brought our country that I love back to some Christian values we lost in the eight years of Obama and for that I thank God and I thank you for your service to our country. My grandson has now come back from 4 years in Marines and another just got married and is now serving our country in Marines. He is a big boy and they will put him on the machine guns. Heâ€™s in a different group than the other one was..much tougher I think.
By the way Frank if you canâ€™t see how hurtful your remark about me stirring the pot which is actually saying that I am on here to cause trouble and agitation which is so untrue. I hate conflict especially over trivial things that are not even important. This is the first time I have been strong enough to even comment and only God knows why. Blessings Frank
Frank, you are so right I do owe you an apology and that is why I have stopped communicating with people on here that I seem to bring out the worst in by their reaction to my thoughts on a post. I have never known anyone on the Graham team to promote Catholics. Billy Graham has always said and I agree totally; Godâ€™s Job is to Judge Holy Spirit to convict Our job is to love.. we donâ€™t have to agree on every doctrine on here to love that person. But my beef is how I have been run down because I believe Franklin Graham is a man God has chosen to carry on Godâ€™s message to the world. If anyone disagrees and hates me fine but I donâ€™t hate in return. My love for you and anyone else in Christ is still there, even in disagreement.
Donâ€™t understand why the scripture quoted by Jim wasnâ€™t used by the Democratic Party for Donald Trump instead of constantly harassing and bellyaching and never seeing the good he has accomplished. His State of Union Address was the best I have heard. Itâ€™s stupidly and I saw on Fox News a video of her starting a small rip on each page In readiness of the ta da final tear. What a performance.ðŸ˜‚
I do agree with Dr.Dobson and those that disagree are trying to kill the messager because they donâ€™t like the message just like they did in the days of the prophets of God who brought messages dealing with their sins and worship of idols and coming judgement. Threw Jeremiah in a pit and I do believe some on here would love to throw me in one as well lol!!
Hi Frank and your fellow followers of truth as you see it, hate is pretty powerful and God has said we are to hate our enemies and say all manner of evil against them. You are suppose to love your enemies and do good to those that despite you and pray for them that hate you. At least thatâ€™s what my Bible says.You see Godâ€™s kingdom is an upside down kingdom from the world and Satan â€˜s kingdom and so to be full of bitterness and hatred and so angry itâ€™s eating you alive is not following Christ â€˜s example. I wonâ€™t be commenting on anything you have to say Frank because you enjoy hurting people that donâ€™t agree with you and thatâ€™s not who I am.
So thankful that we have a good and true man of God that keeps telling the true message of God. I for one never watch football and today is the first I heard about it. So thankful for a voice that will be heard because of his name and life works in the world (Samaritan Purse). So many get angry at the message he believes and preaches and they want to kill the messager with lies and whatever it takes to stop the message. I see Godâ€™s hand in disasters around the world happening daily because that is the only way He can get to those who keep doing so much evil and for those that think theUSA is behind this new virus, think again. Itâ€™s Godâ€™s way of getting our attention.
The evil of the world and Satan that controls the ones that do the evil are the ones we have to deal with by Godâ€™s hand upon us to do so. Whether we believe this or not we are in a spiritual warfare. Do we really know what is happening here when Isis attacks and kills innocent people ?? Itâ€™s not because they are in any danger of being abused or attacked themselves but because their Muslim god and their religious beliefs tell them to kill the infidels which includes Jews, Christians and anyone else that doesnâ€™t believe the way they do. If they die by blowing themselves up in a public place and kill Ihundreds of innocent people, including children, they go to heaven and are given 7 virgins and their families would be given money. How crazy is that??!! We have to somehow put the fire out and so we have done what needs to be done. I hate war just like most people do and so thankful for a Christian like Pompeii to be a part of the team against evil with his prayers to a loving and just God.
Prayers for our brethren that are in harms way, that Godâ€™s protection will be with them as they make decisions concerning what they need to do. May strength be given you and peace of mind. Brother Frank being one that comes to mind and others as well on here.
Jim. I am not on a pastoral committee looking for a preacher to be president and even he has feet of clay. I am looking for someone strong in his love for our country, will uphold our constitution of the United States ðŸ‡ºðŸ‡¸ and not buy off the people who are building bombs and blackmailing us with threats to blow us away if we donâ€™t. I want a president that shows strength and will make a believer out those that are in apparently some kind of denial. The enemy like animals can smell fear. Obama did so much damage to our country and we are still paying the price.If a Democrat gets in office our country will be in deep trouble.
I do agree with MacArthur in that which way you will not declare that you are or not a Christian. My husband is Republican, 2 sons are a daughter and grandson and wife Democrats. My husband has never made a profession or been baptized or acted interested in God or the Bible etc His family Democrats except for one sister. His brother a devout Christian, a holiness preacher and his sons are also Holiness beliefs are Republicans. So rather than judge their salvation, I leave that to God who judges the heart.
This scripture came to mind as I read this. Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. vs37 But as the days of Noah were so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Did they not laugh and ridicule Noah building this huge Ark, going about with business as usual, until the day Noah and family entered the ark,vs39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away,so also will the coming of the son of man be. I have been given the opportunity as a Christian to vote a President into office and what my party stands for is very important to me. I refuse to vote for abortion and other evils that a party in control will pass laws that are against the laws and statutes of Jehovah God that I serve.
Love the way this is going on todayâ€™s comments, already made my day less stressful by the ones on here that gives such wise sayings and makes you stop and think. ðŸ˜‚ Douglas fir, a paper cut is the most painful cut I have ever had so I will make sure to stay away from water and make matters worse!
