"Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice."
Psalms 55:17 (KJV)

You are needed here. I tell myself sometimesgoats eat trash, but sheep and lambs do not.
Don't allow this to cause a ripple. If I learned nothing else, idle words get personal attention from the Lord.
You showed me today that there is much more to you, than others realize. Let's be more like Christ. It was hard for me to not trade punches with those who punch. That's how I know about idle words, punch outs, and being reactive.
I actually feel the Holy Spirit grab my collar and pull backlike he's reining in a horse. Yikes LoL
Or He got silent for a while. That hurts worse.
Don't be offended. It all works out.
Brother Chris is always a good teacher; patient and kindsorta like Jesus. :D. He's a missionary.
My favorite Apostles are Paul, John the Beloved; Barnabas too because he cheered others up. My favorite Prophets Ezekiel and Jeremiah. When I first studied Jeremiah, I would cry a lot. A favorite preacher: David Wilkerson. He has videos on YouTube. His son, Gary is a missionary (World Challenge dot com) and puts out regular news bulletins. You should sign up to get those. When I'm through reading them, I go leave it on my neighbors doors.
Don't you know Jesus loves all of us and wants us to be more like Him. I love you in Jesus and pray for the oil of joy to soothe your heart.
10/22/2021, 9:30pm by "Being the Church": John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." The highlighted verse above is so important in this discussion. Jesus is saying that there is no other way to God (and therefore heaven) accept through Jesus. There is no wiggle room here. If we are open to tolerance in this verse then we are teaching against Jesus Himself. I need to say that again, Jesus is saying that there is no other way to God other than through Him (Jesus). Not by being good. Not by going to church. Jesus alone. That doesn't mean we need to be intolerant in areas of the Bible that are not specifically clear. Some draw divisions over end times discussions. Other draw divisions over the mode of baptism. Other divisions come over the way we need to evangelize. My point is that I believe that far too often within Bible believing churches, we (the church) have become the chords of disunity where none need to exist. The Bible shows that we need to show the love and unity to a lost and hurting world. It is important to study the Scripture and seek diligently for what it says, however we all need to be humble when we approach the words of God and to err on the side of love and unity whenever possible without disregarding the clear teaching of God's word. Praise Him!

I apologise to you and every one on this site . I'm too ashamed to say any thing else . I'm too ashamed to stay . Good bye and God bless you all . Sacha .
10/22/2021, 1:46pm by "Earl Bowman": Brother david, i fully agree. philippians 2:13 for it is god that worketh in you both to will and to do his good pleasure. you (sinful flesh died, on the cross, you no longer exist. the life (i am the way, truth, life) now in you is christ. no greater love has a man than to give his life for his brother. have you died to christ (the word of god, this is the first death) (first resurrection). revelation 20:6 revelation 13:10
10/22/2021, 1:36pm by "Mishael": I'm an evangelist. I say what the Holy Spirit shows me. I may not know dates, years, days; I just say what I see. I do study what the Holy Spirit wants me to see. He highlights scripture. Things I have read hundreds of times. Then He will show a different meaning just by placement of commas. I have a new comment on Genesis 1 and 2, I had never noticed before. I'm praying over this right now. Don't allow opposing comments stop you. GOD will confirm His Word. I always go look at the Commentaries on Google. (Well known Christian commentators). I take it all in and do a lot of prayer and fasting over it, as in wait on the Holy Spirit. Whatever Rhema He wants to show is what I say. Mostly because I want to hear what the Lord is saying. I like to sit in here and see what others are thinking, asking and saying. Iron sharpens iron. It smooths off the rough edges (flesh). Jewish teachers and students do the same thing. It's all good. Don't get riled when someone disagrees. The Holy Spirit will bring Jesus's Light into the conversation. We're living in a time of false teachers, and falling away, so let us all pray for the Holy Spirit to impart 'discerning of spirits' to us. May we receive it. 1 Corinthians 12 The only suggestion I can make is if we could press the "View Thread" box to see if everyone has at least received a reply? Gotta go feast. My flesh just served notice it's calling the police.
10/22/2021, 1:24pm by "Earl Bowman": Sister Cassidy, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding. I don't know if you know THE ANGEL (messenger) OF THE LORD (Father) in the old testament WAS and IS CHRIST. Romans 8:29 ... the image of Christ (angel of the Lord)....firstborn among MANY BRETHREN ..... It takes the Spirit CAUSING you to put verses TOGETHER to come to TRUTH. Isaiah 28:9-11
10/22/2021, 12:16pm by "David": Hi Earl Brother you just proved my point, if we are led by the Holy Spirit of God then on any given subject matter in Gods Word its not going to mean 12 different things in understanding. According to philippians we are to be of the same mind. The mind of Christ or spiritual mind isn't going to have 20 different meanings to one area that's confusion.
10/22/2021, 11:55am by "Cassidy": Thank you Mishael . Your guidance is appreciated .
10/22/2021, 11:47am by "Earl Bowman": Brother David: 2 Peter 1:20 This scripture means that no one scripture has ALL TRUTH in that scripture; but must be held in light of all other scriptures to come TO TRUTH. All scriptures have to AGREE, otherwise you are misapplying the TRUTH of the scriptures. Only the Spirit can led you to TRUTH. Ask and it shall be GIVEN, in Spirit's appointed time.
