Preaching the Gospel, Preparing a People
Thank you Don Hooser for your article.
Fortunately I have given the God of the Heavens and earth praise and glory daily thanking Him throughout the day for all His blessings. Blessing the Holy Name of God is appropriate behavior even in front of men. Even in conversation my praise of God shines forth and gratitude is shown by looking into the sky and thanking God for His Holiness in my life.
There is an explanation given to people I meet about all of us being sinners and in the same boat with death hanging over our head with certainty. The only excape is Christ Jesus Our Lord and Savior who shed His innocent Blood for every human on this earth.
The promise of Eternal Life in the family of God is our hope but few are able to grasp the meaning of these words and thoughts. Another favorite expression of mine after explaining the above stated words are how can you be born into the family of God and not know how to love what God created? We must learn how to love the creation and by extention we show love to Holy God.
Thank you again Don for your inspiring article written by a fellow deciple of Our Lord.
May Your Kingdom come my Lord!
Just wanted to say good job Darris of explaining the situation confronting America in today's world. Continue the excellent writing that I am accustomed to reading from your hand.
You are welcome Joy. Because you follow Christ you realize the problem is severe. Those not worshiping Christ also feel there is a problem because I ask them and they tell me it is mostly bad to be on your phone all the time. The joy I receive is in making them think about this addiction and it's positive and negative sides. The problem as I mentioned earlier is in the abusive world of Satan the devil and no shared morality. If you have to be cautious all the time and on guard because you never know what this person should have from you and most likely it is nothing good but instead selfishness and evil why meet someone new?
I sincerely believe this can only be fixed by Holy God so we end up frustrated and sad over the state of affairs of mankind. Long-suffering would describe it best and Gary Petty gave a wonderful sermon on this that I enjoyed very much last night. He made it clear we all suffer with sin in the life including me so we do not judge others but are personally responsible before God at all times to uphold His truth. Thanks again Joy for your response to me above. Let us continually pray Your Kingdom come dear Jesus. Amen
Hello Joy Porter, Thank you for a well written article and timely alarm about this addiction going on around the world. Never have I had the problem of this addiction to the phone but then everyone around me is totally addicted. This is so frustrating to me because I realize how much they could gain by partaking in the society around them. In one way they are rejecting the society around them by being distracted all the time. They are saying that this app is far more important than anything I could learn from the environment around me. Because of this evil world we are a part of most people do not want to meet strangers and this is understandable.
Here in Oslo Norway where I live now you can walk the whole distance of the underground train which is three cars and it will be filled with people and not one sound can be heard. Obsession with the phone has reached alarming proportions. Anyway happy to see you breaking this addiction and drawing closer to God. My patience is tried every day with this obsession but thanks be to God I do not over-react to this phenomenon. Let us pray that His Kingdom come and wake up the techno zombies and give them life. Amen
Thanks Darris McNeely for this article. I believe the same about the Sabbath Day. For many years I have kept the Sabbath Time Holy with God. Though not perfectly as we all struggle with sin and overcoming in this life.
It has been a blessing as you have spoken about and also a challenge when the people you are living around do not understand nor respect God's Holy Day. Such was the life in Norway where I spent 24 years of my life. Many years were spent on the social welfare roles for my refusal to work on God's Holy Time. Guess we should be willing to suffer to defend His Commandments.
Today I live in Vietnam and here they ask me what does this term God mean? As though they have never heard the word mentioned before. This alarms me and saddens me but through faith in Christ I believe this will change and these people will be the people who also worship God in truth and keep His Commandments.
My faith gets stronger every day and let us pray "Thy Kingdom Come!", as you on Beyond Today like to say at the end of your broadcast. Praise and Glory be to His Holy Name! Amen
Thanks again my brother in Christ Jesus,
Well I think the statement on the penny sounds good and has meaning to you and I for sure. But to the American people in general they should change this statement to in Money we trust. This would reflect a more accurate evaluation of American society today. This is one of the reasons I gave up my citizenship in America. They have become obsessed with money and want to talk about it all the time. Even when meeting American people here in Vietnam where I reside now they still talk about money all the time.
When observing Americans here in this country and other countries they are the people who like themselves more than any other country in the world. Like you know what I mean? They use this like word all the time. This gives them away to being American. Another pet peeve of mine is their constant blasphemy of 'God's Holy Name. Using the expression "Oh my --- " all the time is another irritating habit they have. Not only that but the Vietnamese who learn English pick this blasphemy up also and think this is just fine to abuse God's Holy Name in this way.
May we pray that this evil influence of Americans will be put to rest some day.
Wonderful article Scott!
I would not understand if anyone reading this article would not come away with the idea that Satan the devil is out there and deception is rampant. Basically I just wanted to compliment you on your information provided here. We will need to pray always to be able to stand when Christ returns and even before when the devil will require adherence to his way of life.
The battle still rages on around me and my faith. It has been almost 40 years, ( next July will be my 40th anniversary with Holy God ) now that I have been fighting the evilness of Satan the devil on this earth.
The point is that I study every day and praise God always. After such a long fight I feel more battle hardened and relish the opportunity to stand and fight for the Word of God against evil influences in today's world.
There has never been a time I can say total righteousness has prevailed in my life. Compassion and humbleness were the orders of the day. We will all be judged by Holy God so let us pray for His Holy Mercy to be extended to us sinners.
Thanks again for your wise words and your commitment to serving the living God.
Thank you Tom Robinson for this article. It helps us who love God without measure to prepare for the time in front of us.
My home is in DaNang, Vietnam now and I see too much corruption all around me. Today I watched as police pulled over every tourist they could see driving(4) and confiscate their scooters including mine of course. Not one Vietnamese among the ones pulled over. They told me I did not have a Vietnamese driving license and must go to court on Monday. Not sure what to expect but time will tell.
Thanks again for a wonderful article allowing me to strengthen my resolve to stand up for His Holiness when the time should arise. Courage is required but through many test in the past God has always rescued me in the nick of time. Daniel of the Bible is another good example of courage without compromise and God delivered him without fail.
Because of the knowledge of Eternal Life inside of us we should be willing to lay down our lives to defend His Holy Honor at any given time.
The end times will test our strength of character as well as the love of God in our hearts.
May we pray that His Kingdom comes quickly!
Thank you my brothers and sisters for providing a clear cut way to handle this issue of transgender. They use this term to justify homosexual behavior often saying he or she cannot help themselves if they were born the wrong sex.
The advice you gave about seeking counseling both from God and from humans if necessary is wise counsel. The discussion about the chromosomes determining sex when the person is born with both sexes was very informative.
Thank you also for drawing my attention to the Word of God stated in Deuteronomy 22:5 about cross dressing. I praise God and thank Him for the work He is doing in the midst of my brothers and sisters and they took the time to share this knowledge with me.
Thank you Holy God and may your Kingdom come.
Thank you Tom Robinson for this wonderful article explaining this phenomenon. I too was wondering about this subject matter in the news recently. It is refreshing to know that someone stood up to this lie and called it what it is. You are giving us who worship Christ a clear definition about what this is all about. Now we can be clear and take a stand against this abhorrent behavior the world wants us to swallow. While watching another report about a fashion model who was transgender I personally was almost convinced that what they were saying could hold some truth. Now that you presented this lie for what it is I feel more confident in standing up for the truth of the matter at hand. Thank you again Tom Robinson for your time and research into this subject matter. Keep up the good work!
Thanks for another well written and inspiring article Janet. There have been times when I have explained looking into the mirror and by this I refer to the Ten Commandments of God. This is the mirror I look into to see how I am. When living in Norway I had the Ten Commandments up on my wall in the middle of my living room. Half jokingly I would refer to these Holy Laws of God as my mirror. Most all understood the seriousness of my demeanor and knew me to love God so they did get the joke.
Anyway keep up the good work Janet and we can both pray that His Kingdom come quickly.
Good idea Janet Treadway. Fortunately God found me when I was 21 and before this time the tattoo was not an issue. It is so correct that people need to think before they do something they will regret later. Thanks again Janet for this insightful article about tattoos.
