  2. Brethren, I am starting the next lesson of this this study of, "The Day of the Lord," in the book of Zephaniah. In our next lesson, Zephaniah 3:8 will be our starting point, and the main emphasis will be in 3:9-20. We will look at specific prophecies of "the day of the Lord" that Zephaniah clearly enumerate that will occur, "in the day" (3:11 & 16) and "at that time" (verse 3:19 & 20). Alan

  5. Hello Family of God, "No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. For [NOTHING IS SECRET], that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, [THAT SHALL NOT BE KNOWN] and come abroad." (Luke 8:16-17) Words contained within [brackets] are used to expound on/place emphasis on certain words or phrases; there may also be grammatical errors, such as: punctuation, sentence fragments, and misplaced modifiers; so i apologize if you may have difficulty understanding any content within this message. ALL CAPS within [brackets] are utilized to place extreme importance and special attention in order that the reader may have a clearer and definite understanding concerning the Context of Bible passages cited in this discussion. I am fully aware that some readers may be overwhelmed by the length of this message; however, I believe that this is vitally important and crucial if we are to grow in the Knowledge of the Truth and to ascertain it, because none of us have "arrived" spiritually. The bombardment of attempts made by the Devil and his cohorts to put an end to my ministry is what elicited me to write this message; these ultra pathetic losers just can't seem to get it through their thick skulls that Satan does not have their best interests in mind. These men and women are under his absolute control; he has them on a leash, and when he is done taking advantage of these poor saps, he will dispose of them like the trash that they are. When God's Absolute Sovereignty over all creatures who oppose Him and His Faithful remnant are understood with acute discernment, it will then reveal that such men and women most certainly do live up to their name. This topic will be [ongoing], as there are countless methods the god of this world uses to deceive the unbelieving and simple-minded; so please be patient and bear with me on this. Let's fight this battle together, soldiers! "We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and [THAT WICKED ONE TOUCHETH HIM NOT] (Grk. ouch haptetai autou; i.e., to lay hold of or grasp). And we know that we are of God, and [THE WHOLE WORLD LIETH IN WICKEDNESS]. And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life." (1 John 5:18-20)

  10. Y'all ask about RU. I went there for about 22 months. While I can't personally speak to the financial cost, they were founded as a reaction against AA-type programs. On the surface, RU points at addictions, but then they go deeper, to the spiritual need. Whether the problem is drink, drugs, or something else, it is not talked about - only the student's relationship to Christ. The local chapters meet on Friday nights because that is the only time someone in bondage has any money in his pocket. It is extremely liberating to wake up on Saturday morning with 100% of your paycheck in your own pocket. Because of that, other evenings are not as successful. Their success rate six months out of the program is over 80%. AA has a success rate on day of completion of around 9%. I think numbers should count for something here. Would I do it again? Probably not for myself, but I would definitely recommend the program for others.
  11. LABOUR PARTY LOSES IN “SURPRISE” RESULT IN AUSTRALIA ELECTION (Friday Church News Notes, May 24, 2019, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - In an upset victory that surprised pollsters, Scott Morrison, Australia’s conservative prime minister, won the national election on May 18. The Labour Party, which was expected to win, has vowed to instigate a radical homosexual rights agenda and ban religious exemptions for those who oppose it. A friend in Australia wrote, “Final results are still to come to see if the Coalition (Liberals/Nationals).. Read More View the full article
  12. It is just another one of their ways to “earn favour” with God, to merit salvation.
  13. Quick Spanish and Catholic lesson here. All jotas (Js) are pronounced as an H (haches, Hs, are silent). Jesus (pronounced Hay-soos) IS the name Jesus (Gee-sus). Catholics name many of their children after "saints", apostles, prophets and yes -- the Lord. They see it as a blessing instead of blasphemy. In a Spanish Bible Jesus is spelled Jesus, Jesus Christ is Jesucristo,
  14. The following material is excerpted from THE DISCIPLING CHURCH: THE CHURCH THAT WILL STAND UNTIL JESUS COMES . Available in print or as a free eBook from www.wayoflife.org. Following are some of the factors that have weakened the character of Bible-believing churches over the past 70 years and helped create a mixed multitude philosophy. Theological Liberalism Confidence in the Bible was weakened by theological liberalism and Darwinian evolution, and this greatly affected the spiritual power of churches. Though liberalism took many forms, its essence is an attack upon the authority of the Bible. The Northern Baptists became liberal in theology at the beginning of the 20th century. (They were known as the Northern Baptist Convention until 1950, when the name was changed to American Baptist Convention.) For example, in 1918, Harry Emerson Fosdick, pastor of the influential Riverside Church in New York City, published The Manhood of the Master , denying that Jesus Christ is God. In 1926, the Northern Baptist Convention voted by .. Read More View the full article

  19. Eric, That you for pointing out to us more closely Zephaniah 1:14a and 2:1-3. Zephaniah 2:1, "Gather yourselves together, ye, gather together, O nation not desired." has been true since the day Zephaniah penned these words. 1. The nations surrounding Israel, to this day, despise, or as Zephaniah wrote, "not desired," the nation of Israel. 2. Even in the state of Israel, the "Palestinian" movement despise, or, "do not desire," the Jews and are trying hard to wrest the country away from them. 3. The Muslims throughout the world, despise, or, "do not desire," the nation of Israel: the Jews. 4. The Catholics, the Reformed churches, and numerous other religious bodies, openly despise, or do not "desire," the Jews and the nation of Israel. 5. Sad to say, the "new IFB" movement, "does not desire", or despise, the nation of Israel, the Jews, in our age. Yes, the prophecy of Zephaniah is true to this day. Alan
  20. I don't think people get confused. Isn't the Spanish name pronounced "Hay-soos" when it's a person and not Jesus Christ?
  21. Yea, the internet theologian!!!! I can add another internet theologian to my list. Oh, by the way, I have a long list now!!! But, alas, the internet theologian thread was not to be. Such is life on the internet. So sad! The leeches are many but the threads are few.
  22. The bloke on the right has indigestion. The one in the middle just heard one of the other two break wind and is waiting for the odour to hit. Martin Short could very well be chanting DaveW, but it is a bit hard to get your tongue around in that setting - more likely just "Davo, Davo, Davo".....
  23. Whoever came up with that "What's the best nation in the world" picture...deserves an award! That's just too hilarious! For those who may be unaware, DaveW and I had a "Prosperity Preacher Battle" some time ago...this is just a rekindling of that thread. Here Dave...this is for you, my friend...I might be wrong, but I think he was saying, "DaveW, DaveW, DaveW!"
  24. Can we add another one to this? The internet theologian!
  25. Yes, it is Joel Osteen, the actor in the religious world of Hollywood.
  26. I hadn't posted an update on Facebook for a while until this morning. Some of it is a repeat of the previous post, but here it is: A few weeks ago, the doctor cleared Randy to go back to work. He had already been back to preaching, but now would need to go back to home health aid. We were not thrilled with this, because we know how much pain he's in (well, I know from observation, he from - obviously - experience). The first week there were some issues that seemed like would end up with his losing his workman's comp. We know that if that had happened, God would take care...briefly summed it was because he had been released for light/moderate duty, but even the light duty was too much. He had three days with 1 shift each day, 1 1/2 hour each. Sounds easy peasy, right? Well, he had just gotten to the point where he was sleeping at night for maybe 3 hours at a shot before pain woke him. The night after his first shift was not horrible, but it wasn't as well as the previous nights had been. The second night was worse, and he woke in the morning for his third shift with his foot so swollen (this was after propping it the rest of the previous day and night) he could hardly get his shoe on. Yet he still went to work. So...he had to see the doctor again. He wanted me to go in with him, to make sure that he remembered everything he wanted to discuss. Upshot of the visit was that the doc limited him to two 1 1/2 hour shifts per week. While that is still difficult for him, it is much better than the 3 shifts. So he's done two weeks like that, and heading into his third week. The doctor had also referred him to a neurologist for his foot. And the doc told Randy that it's very likely that he has neuropathy (which is not curable)...and that this is quite likely his "new normal." He has an appointment for June 26 He still isn't driving, so my mom and I take turns bringing him to work - and finding something to do in town so we don't have to drive home and go back. =D Just this morning, as he was walking to his chair, he was limping badly. I asked him if he was ok...he was having some intense surges of pain. He had to get to his chair and sit before he fell. The surges of pain are one big reason he isn't driving right now. And they are intensely painful. It bothers him that he can't get outside and putter with things - like mowing the lawn. Our son has come and done some mowing, and my wonderful sister and her boyfriend spent 4 hours (that's a total of 8 hours...) this past Saturday mowing and weed eating - and they weren't able to finish it all! Not because they weren't working like lunatics, but because there's just so much to do! Randy feels guilty about not being out there (I know, and he knows, there isn't anything he can do about it, but there it is...). So there's that. And he is a bit frustrated at not being able to be out knocking on doors for church. It's something that he has always loved doing, and now cannot do. At the same time, he knows that God is in control - and he is looking forward to God working in our lives and in our church. And he is enjoying the extra time to study. Me? I'm concerned greatly. He has several health issues that can be life-threatening. I'm praying for a miracle. A miracle that, even if he has neuropathy, our Great Physician will heal him. I can't really put into words all that is in my heart. But I would ask that you join me in praying for that miracle. Thank you for continuing to pray for my Randy.
  27. Alrighty then. This thread is going to be locked as soon as I'm done posting this. And I think you'll understand why... MJW has brought to this thread nonsense spewed on David Icke's forum. David Icke is a conspiracy theorist (please understand, I'm not against every "conspiracy theory" because the devil really is out to get us) who is anti-Israel, believes shape-shifting lizards control the earth, parallel universes, that he is a son of the godhead, had an illegitimate child from his wife-approved relationship with a psychic (his wife renamed herself Michaela, you know - from the archangel Michael). I could go on and on, but I don't need to. The fact remains that the nonsense listed in this thread appears on his official forum. I'm leaving the thread intact simply for educational purposes. However, to the reader of this forum: please be advised that what MJW has said and posted in this thread is not biblical. @John Young, if you'd like to comment, let me know. I'll be glad to unlock it for your comment, since you are the originator of the thread.
