Hey folks. So, I planted a seed in my aunt Sue; I witnessed to her. She didn't accept it. I tried using Ezekiel's Tyre prophecy and Daniel 9 and Jesus to prove the Bible, and I have my personal testimony. She just saw it as me just trying to find peace. She has been blinded. Pray to snatch her out of Satan's grip.
I know what family rejection and rift feels like. Praying for your Aunt Sue, that others will come along and water the work that you have done and that God will soften her hard heart. Blessings, Beloved.

Praying. I'm glad you were able to talk to her. Sometimes it takes many talks before somebody is ready. I've been witnessing to my coworker Christ for 2 years. He seems nearly ready, but is stubborn and won't make the plunge at this time.
I John 2:28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
Yes, never be discouraged if someone you are witnessing to doesn't immediately decide to give their lives to the Lord. That doesn't mean they never will. There may be more conversations you'll be able to have with your aunt in the future now that you've introduced the subject. And it may very well be that, even though it appears she wasn't receptive to the message, she did hear it and will remember it someday in a time when she is looking for answers to the questions of life.
My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promises. (Psalm 119:148)
After Trumps rally last night (8/22) I thought about the Word being a seed, a two-edged sword, going forth and not returning void, etc. (you fill in the blanks). Three dear Saints--Ms. King, Reverend Graham, and V.P. Pence--prayed and spoke passages directly from the Bible. We know God looks on a man's heart and we know the Holy Spirit gently convicts and His kindness leads to repentance. I pray for every person at that rally who may have considered the condition of his soul. Please Lord, put laborers in their path. God, how we need repentance and revival before the terrible day of the Lord. Thank you for our president and may he,too, be counted worthy.

yardstick: @ew, re: US economy - it wont, but the pandemic is irrelevant. It has more to do with demographics. We have about 5 years of inflation before things calm down.

yardstick: @ew, re: annexing ukraine - it was never about annexing them when they proved intractable. Now it is only about razing the entire country to the ground and making it unliveable - no infrastructure. Then on to Warsaw, Bucharest, and Lithuania...

EnochWalked: @ys Great analysis, thank you. 5 years of inflation is plausible, but I'm curious about what demographic issues you think might lower GDP growth? Yes, sadly Russia knows it can't afford to fight against an insurgency there, so they have to depopulate it.

EnochWalked: "America’s Dead Sea, as it’s also known" "If the salt content rises much further, to around 17%, it will be too much for the algae in the water, threatening the flies & ... shrimp that feed on it." "Demand for water...could outstrip supply as soon as 2040"

EnochWalked: I'm seeing the phrase "medication abortion" a lot recently, after the recent SCOTUS ruling, & I'm wondering if this isn't a closer prophetic match to "pharmakeia" than vaccines (which are supposed to make people healthy) or drugs (to make people 'happy').
