  1. Today
  2. The picture cropped at the top is of or by someone who was publicly anti-christ, and unrepentent when they died, according to online sources available searching for a while. I left 3 messages for the site owner source of that link, I think. Their testimony is that they (the source) were saved Baptist, then went through other churches, most not alive they said, then to a 'good' resting? place church where they are now. It is difficult to communicate the connections and time frame/ word press/ etc so some points may be different than posted here. .... Why does anyone ever do good works ? I did not see this answered on this forum nor at the source of the article. It "remains .... to answer" .
  3. I know I'm not a pastor, but...my hubs attends the annual church planting conference at the church that founded ours (I go with him, too, for most of the services). At one of them we learned of the independent Baptist fellowship here in WA (there are more good churches in WA than we ever knew). Anyway, they usually meet monthly for a couple of days of preaching. He's not gone to any yet, but now that he's not working another job he might be able to. I'm glad for him, because the fellowship and the preaching will be beneficial.
  4. Sorry bout that, I thought it was KJV - on purpose I choose KJV each time. ================================================= As Jesus Says Instead: Do not judge by what you can (physically) (read) see and hear, rather Do not judge according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment. Jesus is saying we can "judge" only do it correctly, not by what you see or hear but by the Word of truth. (The Father's Righteous Judgment, lacking in babylon) Isaiah 11:3 King James Version 3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: https://biblehub.com/kjv/isaiah/11-4.htm Verse (Click for Chapter) King James Bible But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.

  5. Jeff, the board rules state that if you quote or post Scripture, you do it from the KJV. What you posted from the Berean Study Bible is not KJV.
  6. Short Excerpts of her letter known worldwide for decades: (This is from a letter Corrie wrote in 1974) "The world is deathly ill. It is dying. The Great Physician has already signed the death certificate. Yet there is still a great work for Christians to do. They are to be streams of living water, channels of mercy to those who are still in the world. It is possible for them to do this because they are overcomers. ======= "Like King David Corrie testifies of the wonderful presence of God in times of trial and testing. He prepares a table before us in the presence of our enemies. The bread and the wine of the Eternal Covenant is presented there on the table before us. A true bride is more than just a passive purchased concubine. She is vitally involved in the covenant issues of her Family, the Covenant People of the God of Israel. A true bride will not balk at the bridal witness. She will sign on with her Bridegroom and stand as witness to Him, come what may. " ======== "...She exhorts us to prepare ourselves spiritually in Christ, in His Holy Word, and by His Holy Spirit for the coming trials of our faith. She tells of the Chinese Church in a former time being misinformed, unwarned, and ill-prepared for he persecutions that began in 1949 under Mao Tse Tung's Red Guards. In this letter Corrie warns that Christians in the West today are in danger ..." ======== http://endtimepilgrim.org/corrie.htm
  7. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Romans 1:22-23
  8. Yesterday
  9. The first six are what Murray apologizes for in #7. I’m working on #9 where Murray paraphrases the beginning of Genesis. In the one you liked (#8), did you notice anything wrong with what Murray was saying? It’s very important to me that I’m being scripturally accurate.
  10. I listened to all of A House Needs a Builder (8) and liked it. Then listened a couple minutes to Rumple (3) , and didn't like that one enough to keep listening. In the start of it, when it got about the buying shoes, I started not to like it, and listened a little bit more to see if it got 'better'. It didn't appeal to me - no motivation to listen.
  11. The names we use for all seven of the days of the week are from pagan sources, as are many of the months of the year, and the named bodies in our solar system. Use other names for them while speaking English & no one will know what you're talking about. No one is concerned about their origin; they're simply the common names everyone uses. Many names, signs, & symbols have changed in meaning & usage over the years. For instance, the swastika, whatever it's been called in languages other than German, was a good-luck sign for centuries. The T-shaped cross was a pagan symbol for centuries. A fish symbol was a symbol of Dagon, the fish god of the Philistines & some other ancient peoples. And in English, many words now considered "cussing" were in everyday usage. That includes the "F-bomb". Just look up its etymology if you don't believe me. And if you read a KJV, you'll see a word for "urinate" that was commonly-used then, but is now considered scatology. As for me, I shall continue to use the common English-language names for the days & the months, knowing it's not sinful. But if your conscience says it is for YOU to use'em, then don't. That's all I hafta say about it. And you see my view of "good Friday" above.
  12. There's a fine line between a stream of consciousness and a babbling brook to nowhere. Dan Harmon
  13. Grievously knowing the antichrist one that gets thousands or millions of times more than these little guys mentioned on this forum. How? Sheer deception. The world loves its own. (and is self-deceived and deceives everyone) The false religion and false medicine and false governments and military/weapons might account for 95% or more of where the money goes in the whole world, without helping anyone with it. A token few dollars (even if it is millions), may for show go to those in need. God says no to trust in that for anything - not to trust the governments, religions, or entities that are of the world, under the direction of the enemy, for profit. Laugh? LAUGH! ? God Laughs at the plans of the wicked ! Copeland and Graham and pharmacy and communist and socialist and even democracists? ... Babylon in toto. The ones not seeking God's Kingdom. The ones not repenting. Do people listen to heretical preachers? Absolutely. They become twice the sons of the devil too, as written. They far outnumber the saints, the truth, true preachers and true believers. Likely if not actually, they always have greatly outnumbered the followers who trust in God, except for potentially two times in earths history, so far.
  14. The devil also tells a story, ever since the Garden, or maybe before that? He uses music, church, politicians, doctors, pharmacy, education, and catholicism - babylon worldwide, every day. Most people, billions daily, listen to the devil, knowingly or not. They follow him instead of Jesus. Ephesians 2
  15. I forgot to say that country music to be country music, unless it is an instrumental and some religious hymns, must tell a story. Examples: Uncle Pen The Wreck of the Old 97 There are songs that most folk on the board have never heard of and know nothing about. One is "Train 45," another is "Cumberland Gap." These instrumentals are demanding on the fiddle player. Speaking of fiddle players I doubt anyone on the board has ever heard of "Lost" John Ray. In the Appalachian Mountains he was a mythical figure, unmatched by those who made tons of money recording in Nashville. Watch the following video all the way through. Don't let his looks put you off. The video was taken at his home in the mountains of North Carolina. These mountain people viewed the world in black and white, good or wrong. There was no gray areas. If they liked you they would give you the last biscuit in the house and go hungry themselves. If they did not like you, well it was best to leave them alone.
  16. I'm not sure if I understand what you're asking. It sounds like you're asking if my recorded stories help people deal with being lied to by their government and church. If that is indeed what you're asking, then I would say, no; at least not at this point. Murray briefly mentions how some people use the Bible to take advantage of others, but that's not the main focus of that recording. Story #7 deals with Murray apologizing to Abe for lying to him about the previous stories. Story #8 has Murray talking about the necessary existence of God. Give them a listen and tell me what you think. I'm very interested in feedback and suggestions. That's why I made this thread.
  17. If (as has happened) the devil builds a church, would you (any reader) go to it ? If (as has happened) the devil builds a hospital, would you go to it ? If (as has happened) the devil "worketh" a music group, would you accept it and listen? According to Ephesians 2, you once would, by nature being children of wrath : "Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others."" "Partnered with the devil" = the whole world/ society/ mankind. (except the remnant) John, with all Scripture, agrees there are many anti-christs already among us. Not just in the first century, but humongously insidiously more world wide today, even in chruches. (Remembering the whole world is deceived, as written)
  18. The whole world lies in the hands of the evil one. That's one big lump! Neither God nor Jesus ever approved of the world's way(s). They always told people to repent , come out of it.
  19. Getting back to the original question. I do not believe a person can say that all country and western or rock music is wrong. To me it depends on the words. I know there is an area called Christian Rock. However, that is an area of which I am ignorant and hope others will talk about those songs. With country and western, to me it depends on the words. There are bad and/or immoral C&W songs. An example is Conway Twitty's "You've never been this far before." There are funny C&W songs, such as, "Does Your Chewing Gum Loose its Flavor on the Bedpost Over Night. or "I don't look good naked anymore" The very old country song "Oh Suzanna" has funny lines such as "it was so hot I froze to death." There are good advice songs such as the Carter Family's "Look on the sunny side." There are beautiful instrumentals, such as, "Foggy Mountain Breakdown," "Orange Blossom Special," "Dueling Banjos" to name a few. There are sad songs, such as "Will the Circle Be Unbroken," "Monday Morning Church," "Old Shep," "God's Will," and "That Silver Haired Daddy of Mine." "If You're Reading This." Just a few of many. There are country spiritual songs, such as, "I Saw God Today," "Believe", and "Jesus, Take the Wheel." Just 3 of many. Of course there are the classic Christian hymns that are often played and sung in country and western music converts, such as, "The Old Rugged Cross," "Amazing Grace," "What a Friend We Have in Jesus." There are many more. I could go on and on, but you get my drift. All country and western music cannot be lumped as bad.
  20. Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 1 Corinthians 2:6 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 1 Corinthians 3:19
  21. I hold to the pre-trib view. The pre-wrath rapture view is a result of confusing the body of Christ with the nation of Israel. One group, the Church, will be raptured before the tribulation and the other, Israel, before God's final wrath.
  22. Are Rock and Country/Western music wrong? Such idolatry in music is self-centered, soulish and selfish. It arouses sinful emotions and feelings and thoughts, so yes, it is sin. ------------------------ Amos 6:4-6 "What a picture of excess and uselessness! Like Babylon, these people live in indolent luxury, surrounding themselves with the latest creature comforts, overindulging in rich and expensive food and drink. A glass or a cup is not enough for them—they must drink wine from bowls to satisfy their addictions! They sing songs that mean nothing, but in their hearts they think their songs and music equal to David's! Life is a party! And all they have to show for their lives is a lack of judgment." John R.
  23. ? as if concentrating could help when there are so many gods confusing things ? I never heard this before about taxes, but it would , could, or does explain a lot today. "the Babylonian .. worshiped 4,000 separate gods, each with a specialized function. .. Even taxation was done in the name of their gods. " https://www.bibletools.org/index.cfm/fuseaction/Topical.show/RTD/cgg/ID/231/Babylon.htm
  24. Doing the right thing requires coming out of babylon. "Come out of her My People" "Compared to previous Babylons, the major difference in what we now face in modern Babylon lies in the intensity, availability, and receptivity of its communication. As far as we know, mankind has never before been confronted by these twisted, persuasive, demonic powers as he is today. They now have the global use of the visible and audible influence of radio, music, movies, television, and the Internet, in addition to the entrenched systems of thought and standards of conduct." John R. "Revelation 18:4 "This warning is sobering because the course of this world is closer than ever to reaching its anti-God fullness. There has never been a time in the out-working of God's purpose when this advice is more urgently needed."
