I'm picking my brother up at 5am in the morning and we are going to drive to Daphne AL to look at a motor home.

I'd invite you along but I'll be driving the Chevy Tracker and it doesn't have much in the way of a back seat!

Blessings,

Sorry about being offline last evening. I've been moving to a new server and it took awhile to get everything figured out.

I hope to update the software in the next few days so it might look a bit different but the content should be the same.

This is a sermon by David Platt, pastor of The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, AL. I have made comments over the years about the shallowness of the 'denominational system' and so quick to lump them all together. Here is an example of a sound, Biblical call to repentance and a turning unto God....in a Southern Baptist Church.

If the link doesn't work every time, just go to YouTube and type in "repenting of sin and returning to God" David Platt and it will bring it up.

The angel Gabriel told Mary………

37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.

38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word.
Luke 1:37-38 (KJV)

Behold your handmaid (your servant)

Tho I don't understand or comprehend this........

Be it unto Me according to thy word !

I pray as we read and study Gods Word that our attitude should be as
Mary’s was:

Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word.

Another weekend of violence, sexual inuendos, reveling, lust, and greed has finally past.

I read an article that said they expected 100 million people would watch the superbowl. One third of this country and the number is more likely higher.

We can all see what is important to the American people.

And that is Sin and the pursuit of sin. I can see why so many in other countries keep saying judgement is coming to America.

Those Aussies...


This is a real exchange I witnessed today between an American, an Austrailian, and a New Zealander (on a Christian forum).

So the American (Yankee) guy is challenging a statement by the Kiwi and says to the effect, "saying that that is true doesn't make it true any more than saying I'm your Huckleberry."

So the Kiwi(New Zealand) says, "Sorry pal, but your colloquialism goes right over my head."

An Aussie chimes in with, "Sorry mate, but for us down under, isn't everything over our heads?"


Speaking of Aussies, a Sincere shoutout to our fellow Christians 'down under'...


btw: being someones 'Huckleberry' means 'your man for the job', or 'your guy'...saying made popular by Doc Holliday in the western movie 'Tombstone'.

Anybody heard of or seen the ad campaign that's sweeping the country? It's called 'I Am Not Ashamed'. Here's the link to their website, I found the comments viewers made down below interesting and some were a blessing.

I've removed the test area and the maillist associated with it and since
nobody liked my innovative initiative I've removed it as a public option.
I of course will still be able to leap over tall buildings using
the software (designed for superheros) while the masses will still need
to use the subway system. Never fear, I will only use my power for good.

I met a young man recently at physical therapy and he had a tattoo on the underside of his right arm that said, "Exodus 20:15"

I asked him about it and he said he was a baseball player in college and his position was catcher... thou shalt not steal.

I have a nephew who is a firefighter and he has Isaiah 43:2 tattooed on his ankle, "when thou walk through the fire, thou shall not be burned "

I don't know what to think presently concerning all the storm clouds gathering over Andrew Stroms Ministry. Google Andrew Strom.

There's a number of articles being written saying he is heading up a "new cult" of New Zealand followers. I did notice he has two web sites that he no longer allows people to post on and has opened a third web site that is a closed door member only club. You have to be signed on and go through a screening process to participate.

I thought this was maybe to weed out so many false doctrines that was constantly being posted on his site. I seen everything from people who believed in aliens to mormonism being promoted by his many visitors, So I thought personally it was better not to let just anyone post was the reason for the new site.

For the most part I always felt this man's ministry was valid but I did not believe he was a prophet as some claimed.

Why? He gave a major prophecy concerning a deadline that was to take place by the end of 2012, which never came to pass. He told his supporters that if this prophecy never came to pass he would have to apologize to the body of Christ.

"There was never an apology and the article with prophecy was removed from the site."

Anyway, I do not understand all the riff raff with the articles and the concern at this time. For the most part I believe this Brother has a heart for the Lord. It will be interesting how this unfolds, any minister who tries to make a difference always seems to be under tremendous scrutiny. After all what is everybody looking for, there will never be a perfect ministry that everyone can agree with?

Wasn't there a prophecy with a group of ministers and a giant snake that was trying to destroy them?

In Him,
Gary

I remember a number of times in our meetings people were told that eating what you wanted was an act of faith. It is?

I don't personally believe a person can live on junk foods, sugary drinks, and candy and expect to live a life of total health.

I do not know if we have ever had a generation of people that have the choices we do when it comes to food.

I know of a man who had diabetes, he quit taking insulin and would eat candy bars as an act of faith. They did not affect him in the beginning but eventually he died of diabetes.

Years ago as a young person I would drink four or five coca colas at work, it was hot and miserable out. About ten years ago or more I totally quit drinking soda, sweetened or diet. Now pop, and sugary drinks has no appeal to me whatsoever.

I just think we can make the message on divine healing to no effect when we try to abuse a situation saying, it is an act of faith.

Faith does not need to prove itself to make it true. Faith is the substance if we have actions afterwards that can be called an act of faith its because we are healed. The actions is you know its taken care of.

What I am trying to say is that some people had the mindset that if they did "something" that this proved it was faith. Not necessarily!

Faith is a knowing in your heart that God has dealt with it and nothing on this earth will stop it.

I hope this makes sense.

Here's something that I found to be interesting about how truths are 'Spun' to meet the agenda of those doing the 'spinning'.

I think most of us are aware of most of this, Bro. Freeman pointed a lot of it out years ago.

But there's a lot of info as to how the media manipulates the general public and influnces peoples opinions.

The god of this world is very clever and deceptive and so many are blinded by his tactics.

It's kind of lengthy and sounds a bit like it's written by one with conspiracy fears, yet there's much truth in it.

Perfect example, Swine Flu......"worldwide Epidemic", they (pharmaceutical companies) used fear to make hundreds of millions of dollars...how? The media.

I received this email yesterday from a girl my wife works with. It was given to her cousin and It blessed me so I thought I would share it with the forum. by the way the girl is 23 years old. I thought us young men were supposed to get the dreams but the Lord apparently thought different...




.




------------------------------------------------------------ --------------------





I had a dream recently that I feel that the Lord wanted me to share with some of you. I hope I portrayed it well enough for you all to fully get the picture of what I experienced… it’s changed me, and my hope is for it to do the same for you…



In my dream I was in a room, by myself, scared. Scared isn’t even really the correct word, I was petrified. I was sitting on the floor in a cold, damp cement room. I remember feeling cold, and eeriness of the air…I couldn’t figure out where I was or how I got there, but I could hear that there was a crowd chanting, cheering and screaming.

I noticed a crack in the wall and I crawled over to look. As I looked out, all I could see was thousands and thousands of people in side of what looked like a coliseum. As I look on, I saw that these people were actually crucifying innocent men and women. I could see the anguish, the horror, I could see the bright red blood that was being pored out of their bodies…

I fell to the ground weeping for them and trembling with fear…I felt so helpless, so unable to help those people, not to mention knowing that I was next. It was such a strong, horrible, REAL feeling. I wish I could find the words to describe it. Its something I have never EVER felt before… Then… I knew they were coming for me. With every step “they” took toward me, it was like an ecoh that echoed through my entire being… boom. Boom. Boom. I could hear my heartbeat, echoing though my head…faster and faster…beating faster and faster as they got closer and closer…

Then, all of the sudden, as they came and opened the door, a white light pierced through the darkness and there was a man in the room with a me. He had a presence, and authority I have never known before. Everything else stopped… He just gazed at me and smiled… He was so peaceful, graceful, and incredibly… breathtaking. I couldn’t see his face, but I knew exactly who he was…He gently walked over to me and bent over, picked me up, and held me. Just held me… Then he whispered in my ear… “I’ll go for you”



I woke up after that, and just broke. I realized that we have a responsibility as Christians to be praying, and interceding for the lost. What we see in the surface may not be as horrible as what I saw in my dream… but spiritually, people are being CRUCIFIED!! WHAT ARE WE DOING? It seems like such an impossible battle but we have been promised that we CAN do all things through Christ who IS our strength… Jesus is always right there… ready and willing to pick us up and take our load from us! No matter what it is, no matter the circumstance…Always just in time…always perfect. If we can only let down our walls, our prides, and our ugly selfish flesh and just let HIM take our burdens…let HIM take complete control of our lives… We will never be dissatisfied…ever!

Bless you all!
Ashley Norris

Here is where all of the bitter rants will end up so it would probably be a good idea to just start them here! I felt that we needed a section for this type of stuff just so we won't fall into that old hide-your-head-in-the-sand routine!

Francis Schaefer wrote a book on that subject. I've talked about it before but couldn't find the thread. I found it hugely interesting and am reading it again. He showed how starting in the reformation and the renaissance all of mans art philosophy science etc and the key moments in history that has brought us to the world we now live in.

The point here is that the film based on the book is on youtube. Last time I read the book I couldn't find the film. anyway its worth reading and watching.

We're going next year. The ICEJ feast. They have it every year. 7-8000 people from all over the world go to the conference and often the Prime Minister addresses the meeting. The Jerusalem march is in the Israeli news today. We were going to go over for the feast this year but it didn't work out. So next year for sure.

A translation of the OT by Robert Alter


He did 4 other books and I have all of them. He is Jewish and as far as I am aware not particularly religious. He is a scholar and professor with an absolutely intuitive grasp of the Hebrew. I like reading history. I found his book called "The David Story" on 1,2 Samuel bought it and was captivated.

His translations are not intended to be a translation of the bible so us religious fanatics can understand the word. Having said that next time I start my OT bible reading in Genesis I'm gong to use it. He is just a scholar with a huge interest in the Hebrew text. Its interesting that the only other version he likes is the KJV. That puts him at odds with much of the christian world. Although not me!

From the article "I would add that the beautiful cadences, the elegant and pointed choice of words, the expressive use of syntax, the vividness of the language of the dialogues, are all essential elements of the reading experience of the Bible, and I’ve done my best to preserve them in English,” he said."

2000 years of Charismatic Christianity

By Eddie L Hyatt

The book . . . https://tinyurl.com/y7t7unah

From the preface

"Its purpose is to show that Pentecostals and Charismatics do have a legitimate history. It also suggests that instead of being on the fringes of orthodox Christianity , Pentecostal and Charismatic Christianity is in the mainstream of both biblical and historic Christianity"

From the introduction

"has it reappeared suddenly in the 20th century with no historical link to the past as some contend"

"The fact is that Pentecostals and Charismatics do have a legitimate history . . . found in the various revival and renewal movements that have emerged constantly in the life of the church"

He makes the point that the book is not cobbled together bits and pieces of church history but a solidly researched scholarly work that will stand up under serious scrutiny. Its also easy to read

Augustine's book "City of God" had a whole chapter on miracles. I read that and went and checked my copy. Strangely enough my edited version didn't have that chapter in it. I wonder why.

Martin Luther
Luther's remarks on the cessation of miracles were taken out of context. The author of the book believes that Luther had a direct experience of seeing the Lord just like Paul. 11 Cor. 12
Many of his followers believed he was a prophet. He also had prophesies fulfilled/prayed for the sick cast out demons etc. You sure don't read that in all the edited biographies of his life.

He gives a lot of info in the book. Also answers some questions I had about some supposedly heretical groups in history. The book has been out for 20 yrs. I don't know why I've never heard of it. Anyway the book is interesting and well worth reading.

To see how determined the left-wing liberal forces that be here in America are to keeping their ungodly laws intact, just look at what's happening with the president's selection for U.S. Supreme Court Justice, Brett Kavanough. Is the timing of these 'revelations' suspect? Of course they are. Can the democrats derail the selection process be creating doubt in this mans' character? Looks that way, but even if they fail his character will be tarnished in the minds of many forever.

God has an agenda, it can't be derailed, nor can any testimony or pressure from the left or from the right can change it, His will will be done.

My prayer is just that, GOD'S WILL BE DONE...(and I trust that's the prayers of all believers...not our 'christian' agenda that 'seems ' right and just, but God's choice.)


O.K. that's my 'getting into politics'....

Quite an interesting article here on Wiki. I had no idea. To take heat like this they must have been very effective. When I was about 14 I was camping with my family and listened to a Sally Ann band. The Oompa type. Brass drums etc. It had a deep effect on me even at that young age. As I listened I found the Holy Spirit speaking to me and calling me although at the time I didn't really understand it. Its interesting one of main opposition actually got saved.

He was one of my best friends in Indiana. I'm sorry to see him go but I know he's with the Lord and I'll see him again someday!

I may drive up to attend the funeral. If anyone else knew him and plans to go, please let me know.

Brother Don Langebartels went to be with the Lord over the weekend. Don't know if any here had set under his ministry. He headed up the Zion Lake Christian Camp near North Vernon.

I have a lot of good memories from that place. Back in the day there was a Seminar held there every weekend in the summer with most of the ministers from Faith Assembly coming down and preaching there. Tom Hamilton and other ministers from around the country preached there also. I remember the summer camp was a great ministry to the youth. Remember to pray for the family.

Sadly missed but with the Lord.

I just found out that Mark and Patty (Seamon) Katzer's son, Danny, passed.

I don't have any other details right now.

This family is very loving and has been a blessing to all who know them.

Please lift them up in prayer.


Shalom,

GWB

I work in Long Term Care (nursing home.)

I have watched dozens of people grow older, decline, and eventually die. I have often wondered how Father picks the moment for people to pass. I think I have seen a small insight into this subject.

"Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.....For the things that are seen are turning to dust, but the things that are unseen endure forever. II Cor. 4:16, 18.

I see old people with bodies that look like prunes. They are wrinkled and creased. Fat deposits of youth are gone and faces and bodies are sucken and thin. The skin is paper thin. Eyes become dim. Ears no longer hear. The memory, short and long term are gone. The list goes on.

I know some are believing for their youth to be renewed, but I digress in making my point.

What appears to be a prune holds a precious gem inside if one has descended in order to ascend. You must want His Kingdom to come and for the Kingdoms of this world to diminish. We must let go of our agendas and our egos. We must despise the advent of self.

Like Paul, I have been with much and with little. I have lost family and friends. I have learned to be content in all things. What a peace! I have had to dangle in the air and He has asked me to jump off of cliffs. That is the way I put it, anyway.

In order to become a gem inside, sometimes He will ask you to live in exile to this world. I have never been more content in doing so.

I believe that when the gem has grown (closeness to Him) and when it sparkles the most from inside the prune (fruit of the spirit) some pass over into his presence.

I have witnessed a few marvelous things when people pass. They see heaven. They see angels. Some are horrified with what they see, but still refuse to receive Salvation when I share with them. Our Salvation is truly a gift.

So, my prayer is to press on. I glory in the excile of this life. My life is His. He gives me dreams about people, words of knowledge, and what to pray. We don't have to be around people to minister life in every case.

I miss my earthly and Heavenly Father. In His time, I will be out of the mess of this world. In the meantime, a gem is growing and sparkling more and more until He decides what to do with it. Smile

Someone asked the question on Lonely planet how to visit Israel and have a polite political conversation. Here are some of the responses. Not trying to offend anyone but I just thought it was kind of funny.

Here was the question

My understanding is that Israel is an intensely political country and that it is often quite difficult to divorce political discussion from daily life. It is part and parcel of it. As well, as Israel has what some might call a disproportionate place in world affairs, it might not be difficult for a visitor to be drawn into a discussion of politics. Does anyone have any tried and proven pointers on the art and etiquette of participating in civil political discussions in Israel? (Operative word civil) Is there anything a well-intentioned but politically aware visitor should be aware of and avoid so as not to give offence?

Some responses

Using "ettiquette" and "Israel" in the same sentence is an oxymoron. Smile

There's a saying among Jerusalem-based diplomats which says: "The first month you'll ask Israelis what they think of the conflict, the second month you'll ask Palestinians what they think of the conflict, the third month on you'll stop asking and you'll get drunk."

There is another saying, that if you visit Israel for a week, you go home and write a book about it. If you go for a month, you write a magazine article. If you go for a year, you don't write anything because you no longer know what to write...

not only do etiquette and israel not belong in the same sentence, i have rarely heard here (in almost 40 years) a civil political discussion! as mentioned, everyone here has very passionate political opinions and is very eager to express them. very very few are willing to engage in a "discussion" , a word that implies dialogue, some sort of give and take, listen and respond. a political "discussion" might be described as more than one israeli offering his/her opinions as holy truth very loudly! and often simultaneously.

Well put. I feel that your advice about week, month, year is true about life as well. The more I learn, the more I realise that I don't know anything. Or as Socrates said, the only thing I know is that I don't know anything.

Does anyone know what causes it? The reason I ask is there was an article which mentioned it in one of our National dallies here in Canada today. Has there ever been any revelation come through our circles or charismatic circles about it?

From the article

And imagine how the latest news — that previous abortions can raise the risk of autism by 26% in later children carried to full term — will be received. Most reports on the October 2011 Harvard University study didn’t even mention the abortion-autism link, just the gestational diabetes-autism connection.

As I'm sure all of you are aware that followed my excellent advice to sign up for Stratfor their site has been hacked.

You need to change all your passwords as the hackers got all the info you provided to them.

What a hassle. I gave them my primary email with my usual password. Went to gmail and found a message from google that they thought my info had been hacked there.

What a hassle. Change all your passwords for whatever info they have.

Also any email from Stratfor is not valid. They are only using facebook & twitter to communicate.

They also have my real name so now I have to change facebook and everything.

I don't know if there's any harm in it except they ram it down everybody's throat.
