I am amazed at his boldness and honesty when it comes to Islam.  He almost reminds me of Paul and his on the road conversion.  Another thought I had is "Is he part of this wave of last days revival" as he has a heart to speak the truth to everyone about Jesus.  He prays worries about his family and is believeing to see them come to Jesus.  He and his church need our prayers most definitely.


I did watch it,

it was designed to be informative

about hamas,

but the testimony of Jesus,

and His saving power came across

strongly.

It was a great testimony.

 

Yes, we do need to pray for him

and those close to him.

They do seek to kill him.

 

The last Christian bookstore

in Gaza, is now closed,

hamas killed the owner...

 

They are determined to kill this

new convert too...

One bad thing about the show,

was that if they did not know

where to find him, they now do,

for it showed the state, town,

and in which church he is...

 

We need to pray a hedge about him,

till the Lord is ready to take him home...

 

I know hamas has most likely found him, but why tell the world where he is living?  That not only puts him, but the church and other believers with him in danger by even local radicals.  Perhaps if the governement considers him "valuable" he is in some type of program with the FBI.  They all need our prayers.

This part of Ohio is going to

have a major winter storm...

talk is about 6 to 12 inches of snow,

followed by below zero temps...

 

so... I expect many will be staying home...

in a way, we may need that a bit..

give some more time for the Lord to be

talking with some...

and time for us to praise Him...

Well, the snow has come,

more is coming...

temps will drop to 0 or below by tomorrow

at this time...

 

and to battle this news,

I am making some plans for a

trip to warmer weather for a few days,

will be taking some family with me,

but need to handle some business

and fortunately, it is in 'warm' weather....

 

so... enjoying the planning...

it helps me have  my mind at least

in the 'warm'

even if my body is still in this cold...

 

don't worry, this new

computer set up means I can take

this computer and internet availability

with me, everywhere but while on the plane...

 

God bless

The Lord, while I am trying to

plan that trip to WARM...

has been talking to me about

starting a kind of

'church'...

 

I say, a 'kind' of church

for it would not be traditional kind...

 

we are in the last days,

we have a prophetic message

for a people about to, and those

facing some last day events that will

make this world much different than what

we have known...

 

location of that church is currently

in discussion for the Lord...

 

this board will have an integral part

in the ministry, as I have discussed earlier...

 

God is providing ...

and I do not want to ... nor need to

be 'begging' for money...

God sends what is needed, and then some...

 

the ministry of the church will

not be to build a local church with

traditional ministry,

but a prophetic ministry

ministering to people in the world

who will be finding churches to be

attacked, burned, etc...

 

we are coming into times where

things will soon be very different...

 

but... God is still 'informing' me of

what all He wants done...

 

now... back to planning the 'warm' part...

LOL

Murj,
When the rapture occurrs do the children of the unbelievers go home with the church?  I had not thought of this until the set of books involving the endtimes where published a few years ago.
Is there scripture that explains this therory?  I suppose I have often thought that would follow God's mercy, but what verses may these authors be using here?

All children, if they have not

reached what we call

'the age of accountability'

are not 'sinners'....

 

no one is damned for another's sins,

so if the children do not know right from wrong,

they cannot have done wrong...

 

so...

like the babes still in the womb,

these babes shortly out of the womb,

have not sinned,

and therefore would be taken to heaven...

 

to damn a child who has done

no wrong for the sins of a parent

would be wrong...

Minor holdup on the plans came last night...

 

yet, this morning the Lord began to show

me why the delay...

 

major decisions need to be made fast,

and I need to know what the Lord wants

to do... and wants me to do...

 

so...  am staying open to His direction,

and watching as He illustrates the lesson...

 

fun to watch these illustrated lessons

sometimes, bit more serious when

I am part of one....

LOL

 

will have to endure this 'cold' a few

days longer...

Remember when we talked

about 'arguing with God' in intercessory prayer..?

 

well, this weather makes me want to

argue for me being in Hawaii..

rather than Ohio...

LOL

 

trouble is, God only loses the arguments

that He wants to lose...

like when we pray for mercy for sinners...

 

arguing for a permanent home in Hawaii

seems to be a losing battle,

but I will fly out there, and

give God another chance to change His mind...

LOL

 

this cold weather stirs my impetus,

but it does not seem to bother the Lord,

maybe I can get an occasional respite in Hawaii

if not a permanent home...

 

I keep telling Him about all those

unevangelized people on the beach over there...

 

but...

the Lord says His ways are best...

and then I remind Him that the only

better places are paradise and heaven...

 

I am open for going there too...

 

some are praying for me to go to a really

hot place... but I have no interest in

even a visit to that place...

You know,

they keep telling us all the things they

think create global warming...

and we are supposed to not do them...

 

I have an idea...

let's get everyone to start doing all those things...

and warm it up a bit...

 

I think we'd be better to be

trying to stop global cooling...

in fact, the world is showing to be

cooling for the last ten years...

and we are now making that cooling

much worse...

 

we need

GLOBAL WARMING

 

LOL

 

go for a long drive in a vehicle that

is very polluting,

burn some incandescent bulbs,

change to a coal furnace...

etc etc...

come on now, the quicker we do this,

the sooner I can feel warm...

 

maybe even we need all those global warming

people to fly across the country to give

another speech...

their jet planes will help warm the country

We can always count on politicians

to do opposite of what they say....

 

in this case, all that global warming

of Obama's crowd

will hinder our current global cooling

someday, if the Lord tarries long enough,

another book I want to write,

is 'Games Christians Can Play'

 

There are many games, mostly mind games,

that I have discovered, that are good

for Christians...

 

for instance, one is

the game of CANCELLATION...

in that one,

when someone takes God's name in vain,

I speak God's name in a proper way,

to 'CANCEL' out the other ...

 

when someone says something evil

against a Christian,

I say something good about the Christian...

 

etc etc...

going through a day or week playing

CANCELLATION is great fun,

and you can see God working in many ways...

 

give it a try sometime...

but remember, this game is one best done

for a long time, like a week at a time...

and you will find 'miracles' accompany

this game....

 

another game I sometimes play...

is called

IDENTIFICATION...

 

 

Have you ever thought of Bible characters,

and Bible stories and looked for

similar situations to your current one??

iDENTIFY with them,

and their situation,

and then try to imagine how they felt,

what they did...

why did they do it...

what should they have done..

and how does all that info help you

in your similar situation...

 

 

it is sort of a 'game' I do...

and a beneficial one,

for when I think of that person,

and what they went through,

sometimes it does help me know what to do...

 

 

David had many problems,

and Absalom, his son,

betrayed his father,

worked against him,

sought to get people to side with him,

rather than with his father's side...

 

betrayal, lying, stealing what was his fathers,

all done by someone David cared greatly

about...

 

my real son would never do that

kind of thing, of course, he's perfect...

LOL...

that I can be happy for...

 

the story should help me...

with the other situation...

guess, I had better refresh myself on the details...
