God was impressing on my heart this morning, is that in the midst of ever increasing struggles and difficulties, we need, i need to hold on to who God is. God not only created Freedom, He is Freedom. He is Righteous. He is Holy. When we are tired He is Strength. When our mortal bodies are knocked down.; He is the little bit of energy we need to rise again. He is an Everlasting Fountain of Life and Energy. He is Motivation. He is Inspiration.
God is Justice. on judgement day, i don't want God's Justice, i want His mercy. God is Mercy. God is Hope. God is Compassion. God is Love. Love is someone dying for you. an deeper is someone sending their Only Begotten Son to die for you. God loved us so much He sent His Only Begotten Son to die for us. Jesus is Innocent, you and i are not. words can describe that Love. Hallelujah Jesus is also Resurrected and Ascended and will Return again.
God also impressed on me that i need to stop walking around down and checked-out. i need to stand firm in Him and His 3000+ promises in His Word. i must not walked around defeated when i have The Holy Spirit indwelling in me. i must put my focus on Him and not on the cares of this world, most of which are fleeting and won't matter in a year, much less 10 years from now. each day He allows me to draw breath may He give me the wisdom and courage to seek Him more closely and develop and deeper relationship with Him. He is Courage. He is Wisdom. He will never leave us or forsake us. God is Victory. i must act like it. i must stand in Him, hope in Him.
mike: Prov 28:9 If one turns away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer is an abomination. (<--Society & some of the church today like this - EW?)

boraddict: Bummer, I was looking forward to debating stella. The supposed message from stella was sad to me; because, it was so obliviously from Satan

mike: Bora - sorry the intent was to antagonize not prophesy.

boraddict: Yes, I know, and stella did not have a solid scriptural foundation. Satan tricks people like that so easily.

ksteven: mike, Bora- I have a sneaking suspicion that the "trigger event" stella was waiting for was being kicked. Im no prophet, but I suspect we may see someone by another name giving a similar "prophecy" soon.

EnochWalked: mike: That's an interesting proverb, thank you. There definitely are those in society that are trying to appear pious while living effectively lawless lives, but sadly many have given up even the pretence of morality, being proud of their abomination.

boymaker: I don't know what to make of Stella. It felt like an attack. She got my Philly up. Pre-tribbers are the target of a lot of mockery and I just felt that in every post. Thanks for showing us how gracious you are to erring members, and where you draw the line

mike: Boymaker, when someone comes here in their first post telling us they have a warning, my guard goes up. We are all different parts of His body. I went into 'protect' mode. It couldve been spot on, but wrong way to deliver it

disciple4life: So, amazing, Mike, Bora. Not sure if it was the Lord prompting me or not, I just saw Stella's thread - 5 pg long, for the 1st time today when she pulled part of a post i made. I just had a deep sense not to respond. Not worth it. Seemed very hostile. hmmm
