  1. Please pray for the healing of my dad as he recuperates from decomprression surgery. Thanks.
  2. Mountain Creek Harmony is a great Christian trio who sing for the glory of God here in North Carolina. They have a great Christian testimony and sing for the Lord. Jesus Christ is coming very soon!
  3. Proverbs 22:1 says, "A good name iks rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favor rather than silver and gold." Today in this country, we have chosen the ways of socialism, government bailouts, homosexual marriage, abortion, and pornography rather than the virtue of a good name before the Lord. I would rather be called Christian than worldly, pro-life instead of a murderer, a supporter of Biblical marriage rather than homosexual marriage, and a hard worker instead of a ward of the state's welfare system! Amen and Amen!
  4. Fireproof was a great movie starring Kurt Cameron and Erin Bethea which made me cry openly. Kurt Cameron seeks to help believers who are struggling in their marriages become intimate again. It was one great movie! :clap:
  5. Thank you Lord Jesus for helping my loved ones and me. May the Lord also give Online Baptist Forum members His peace this Christmas. Psalm 56:10 says, "In God I will praise His Word: in the Lord will I praise His Word." Truly, truly, the Lord's Word is to be praised! :clap:
  6. Please pray for my unsaved and sick lost, loved one. Thank you.
  7. With the election of Barack Obama and his liberal counterparts like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and John Murtha, let all Christians pray for our country as never before. Obama's cronies favor abortion on demand, gun control, teaching sex education to those as young as five years old, and the reduction of defense spending for our military. They are anti-family and anti-God. Let us pray for God's protection for our nation.
  8. Praise God for His acceptance of us in the beloved. Philippians 3:14 says, "I press toward the mark for ther prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." Our prize will be when we see Him face to face, which in my opinion will be very soon. We shall be rewarded by Him if we have served Him in His Spirit and in His love.
  9. In the Word of God, the Scripture says that Jesus Christ is known by His name I Am that I Am. Jesus Christ was the preincarnate Son who has existed from all eternity. Thanks be unto His name forever and forever! :clap:
  10. IJ would like to thank the Lord for Hishealing hand upon my life! I would like to request prayer for my son Phillip who is in Turkey on a college study program for protection and a safe time there. Also, please pray for Richard, a shutin, and for a friend who has emotional problems.
  11. I John 1:3 says, "That which we have heard and declare unto you, that ye may also have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ." Christian fellowship with other Christians and with our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ is the only way we can get through the stressful situations of life without having a nervous breakdown!
  12. The Word of Faith movement such as that orchestrated by Benny Hinn, Mike Murdock, Paul Crouch, and others of the prosperity gospel are false teachers who twist Scripture from the Word to approve their affluent, worldly lifestyles which can not be pleasing to the Lord. I Timothy 6:10 says, "For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." This applies to Word of Faith preachers who abuse the Word of God to take the money of widows and widowers to increase their materialistic collection of jewelry, homes, cars, jet planes, and expensive clothing. Jesus was not rich here on earth so you would think these preachers would get it if they read the Word! :amen:
  13. I love the holiday of Labor Day! I love the change of hot weather to cooler weather, and i love to go on a trip to the mountains of North Carolina at that time. I plan on taking my two sons with me on that trip. Also, I love the change from suummer to autumn, which is my favorite season. James 1:17 says, "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." I praise the Lord for every day, but especially Labor Day which happens to be my favorite day. Labor Day is not to be confused with Ramadan which is not an American holiday.
  14. Praise the Lord most of all for the sacrificial gift of His Son on Calvary who died for us and rose again to justify before God. Romans 5:1 says, "Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through the Lord Jesus Christ."
  15. James 4:17 says, "Therefore to him that knoweth to do good and doeth it not, to him it is sin." This verse tells when we ignore doing what is right, it is just as bad as doing what is wrong. That is my interpretation. Many Christians would rather neglect their brother or sister rather than helping them out when we are able. God expects us to be our brother's keeper to a certain extent. :amen:
  16. Praise the Lord and pray for His very soon return. With the Russians invading Georgia and threatening to atttack Poland, the Iranians threatening to extinguish Israel, and the slaughter of unborn babies by the millions should cause us to pray for the very soon return of our Lord. II Timothy 5:4 says, "Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me at that day; and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing." I do not know everything about prophecy, but I do know that I am looking, watching, and waiting for His return! I hhop e you are also! :clap:
  17. I went to Bob Jones University and graduated in 1976 with a degree in Bible. We had many denominations represented there. I believe that we had about 150 denominations. I do remember Baptists, Methodists, Anglicans, Presbyterians, fundamental Pentecostal maybe, and many others. Bob Jones University usually took more of a non-denominational approach since we had so many different ones. The doctrine unofficially was Independent Baptist since most kids were from that theological persuasion in that day. Being Baptist is great, but being a true born-again Christian is far better! In heaven, we will not have denominations but just true Christians who love the Lord Jesus Christ!
  18. Danieal Kelly, a disabled teen, died from neglect after weighing only 42 pounds. Her mother was charged with murder for letting her daughter get proper medical care. Four social workers were charged also with charges ranging from involuntary manslaughter to perjury. It is appalling that social services would allow this to happen in Philadelphia, Pa. God's judgment will fall on these people for their treatment of this young teen who had cerbral palsy!
  19. Labor Day is coming shortly! Is anyone out there looking forward to the return of autumn with its mild days and cool nights? Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, "To every thing there is a season, and time to every purpose under the heaven:" My favorite season is autumn, a cross between spring and winter! Thank the Lord for autumn!
  20. The United Church of God believes in soul sleep, annihilation, keeping of the Sabbath to earn salvation, and deny the Biblical doctrine of the Trinity.
  21. Luke 16:19-31 was the portion of Scripture that the Lord used to lead me to the Lord. I did not want to go to hell, and the Lord graciously saved me that night back in 1969 during a Billy Graham Crusade from Anaheim, California. I do not agree with Billy Graham on many issues, but the Lord used him to lead me to Himself that night long ago! :clap:
  22. Witnessing for the Lord can be as simple as living lives that are pleasing to Him! Or as complex as standing for His Word in the schools and businesses of our country.
  23. I like the Gaithers, the music of Stephen Curtis Chapman, Twila Paris, Sandi Patti, and Majesty. I do not like rap or any music that does not glorify the Lord. But some music is based upon Christian convictions! It is between the Holy Spirit and the individual believer! No music based upon Christian convictions is worth dividing the body of Jesus Christ over! I also love patriotic music such as that by Lee Greenwood and the kind we sing in church on the Fourth of July!
  24. Daniel 12:3 says, "And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever." Daniel essentially is saying that if we are soul=winners, we will have rewards in heaven! Also, think of the multitudes that will be spending eternity in heaven because of the Holy Spirit's efforts through us. The wisdom of soul-winning will keep many people from having to spend eternity in the lake of fire.
  25. Matthew 18:2-4 says, "And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, and said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven." Jesus Christ says that we as adults need to humble ourselves as little children to enter the kingdom of heaven. We need to be converted and come to faith in Jesus Christ if we are to get to heaven. :amen:
