    Fruit in the Life of Joseph

    Hope the following selection of Hymns are a blessing to your heart. May the Lord bless all of you. Alan
  2. I never said UGC was a corporation; I said, "organization." I stated my opinion on what I saw in a brief, remember the word brief, review. My opinion was not slander, nor did I libele or deframed the organization UGC.
  3. My post stands as I posted it. I am not going to argue the subject because I do not want to argue over an organization. Also, I am requesting the moderators to closely look at one of the above paragraphs and have it deleted as it should not be allowed on Online Baptist.
  4. Sigh!!!! I am not sure if I should mention that snails taste better with a little salt or not. It may be that some of the folks here like their snails with salt and some without salt. So, I will forbear and let all of you eat your snails anyway you like and not try and persuade you otherwise.
  5. We always enjoy a good poem. Keep on posting!
  6. Hello Lydia! Glad to have you here. Sorry to hear that your friends house burnt down the other day. The folks here are interested in Australia, their problems, the recent fires for example, and for the proclamation of the gospel in Australia. Recently a close pastor friend of mine, Pastor Shane Mallard, started on the deputation trail for Australia. Most folks here are familiar with brother David Cloud and highly respect him for his work as a missionary and in his publication, "O Timothy" magazine and fine books. I am sure that he wants to be a blessing to the folks at the church that he visited in Australia and help them in the correct biblical view of the pre-tribulation coming of Christ, the rapture, of the church. Most folks here are of the pre-tribulation rapture of the church position. After a careful study of the scriptures, both in the Old Testament and in the New Testament, it is my firm conviction that the pre-tribulation teaching is correct and that, as John explained briefly, why the post-trib rapture teaching is incorrect. What John Young wrote is entirely true and if you have specific questions why he said what he did he could explain in detail. I am sure that if you have a specific passage that you have a question about the timing (not the exact date but whether the rapture is before or after the 7-Year Tribulation Period), or another question concerning why some folks believe in the post-trib position, we would gladly like to discuss it.
  7. I am not sure why and it is a serious matter. But, I will give two thoughts. A year or two ago, I read a well thought out article on why Trump has not pared down the debt of the U. S. that may, or may not, have a bearing on the Virginia situation. I forgot where I read the article. Maybe it was on, "The New American." The New American has a lot of good, well-written, articles concerning globalism, conservatism, laws, the agenda of the left leaning liberals, etc... Here is the link to The New American. https://www.thenewamerican.com/ 1. Trump has a history of tackling one major item at a time. Trump knows that the debt is unrealistic and harmful to America. He also realized that in order to pare down the debt he would have to do some major, and I mean major, cutting of a lot, not just some, of the social programs in the U.S. At that time Trump stated that in his second term he would tackle the debt program. 2. Everything, or at least almost every thing, every decision, every cost-cutting item, every immigrant situation, the "wall," etc... has been bitterly fought against by both the Democrats and the liberal Republicans. And, almost every decision that Trump has made has been contested in the courts. At the time of the article that I read that until Trump has two more things in his favour he would not seriously cut down the debt. Here are the two items. 1. He had to have a majority in the Supreme Court and more conservatives in the lower courts. 2. He needed a majority in both the House and the Senate. In the article it was mentioned that in his second term he would be able to do more to help undo the mess our country is in.
  8. Hallelujah! Thank you very much for the video on President Trump and Prayer. God has given us a president that is changing the TOTALITARIANISM laws by the LIBERAL LEFT, LIBERAL COURTS, ATHEISTS and WICKED POLITICIANS that have been trying to deprive the religious freedoms, in public places, guaranteed to the People of the United States of America by the Constitution of the United States of America. President Trump is trying to make America great again by getting rid of the Liberal, Socialistic, Muslim, Communist, agenda in America.
  9. Happy Anniversary! See any wildlife? Three Bears? Did ya see Smoky the Bear? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smokey_Bear How about Yogi Bear? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smokey_Bear
  10. A word of encouragement. At our last church we started, in Taiwan, in the Chinese language, with just me and my wife, and no piano player, with me as the song leader. We sang traditional Baptist hymns every Sunday. Most of the folks who came, one by one, did not know any of the songs and a lot of them learned new words every service. A lot of the Bible words, and expressions, were new to them as well as the tune they were sung in. So, every month or so we sang some of the same songs until the folks started to learn them and the meanings. After awhile, a long while, Rebecca came and helped with the piano playing and the songs got more better. After a while one of the young adults felt led to take piano lessons. The church paid for the piano lessons and then another young person (very young), also took lessons. Eventually, the young people took over the piano playing and, at the same time, the folks took over the whole service. All in all, the church, Victory Baptist Church, has three young people who play on a rotating schedule (that they set up themselves and not me). In the photo below the song leader is one of our converts and the piano player is also one of our converts. Here is my word of encouragement and my suggestion. Keep on singing the same hymns out of the traditional song book. Yes, most do not know the words nor the meaning of the words. Yes, you do not have a piano player. So, you just sing the best you can and if you have grace to bear the members mistakes they will bear your mistakes. By the way, my mistakes in the song services, and my preaching, were the mistakes I made was not only in my lack of singing ability but also in the language. So, I had to endure smiles of folks holding down a laugh at my language mistakes besides my lack of singing ability. Eventually, God, will move your converts, or folks moving from one church to your church, to play the piano. God bless.
  11. Brother D.Bovee In you reply to Pastor Markle, and his excellent work in the Greek language and the Greek verb semaino, Collier's Dictionary meaning, and with his understanding of Revelation 1:1, I would like to quote a verse that you used in order to justify your judgmental attitude towards us (fundamentalists). Here is the link to the thread: You quoted Proverbs 3:5, "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding." (Proverbs 3:5). In order for us to obey this verse on to not to lean on our own understanding, and not to presume anything, but act on knowledge, we, would like for you to answer, truthfully, the following questions so we, can not make any mistakes in presumption but to rely on understanding based on correct knowledge. 1. Since you reject the literal interpretation of the prophecies of the book of Revelation. Are you a-millennial in your interpretation of the book of Revelation? 2. Can you give us some examples of fundamental authors that have written a commentary, or study, on the book of Revelation that you disagree with? 3. Do you consider yourself a preterist? 4. Can you give us a scripture verse, from the book of Revelation, that informs us when you believe the Lord Jesus comes for the church saints? 5. Can you give us some examples of authors that have written a commentary, or study, on the book of Revelation that you agree, or partially agree, with? 6. Will there be a restoration of the Jews to the physical land of Israel in the future? 7. In you profile page you did not list what denomination you are. Can you tell us what denomination you are? 8. In your profile page you said that you are not IFB. What religious background are you? 9. Normally in forums, Online Baptist included, it is considered common courtesy to give an introduction. You did not perform this common courtesy. Would you give us an introduction? In the introduction can you give us a salvation testimony? D.Bovee, please give us concise answers. Ambiguous answers, evading the question answers, and answers that ask questions are rarely believed and do not give us proper knowledge nor understanding. Please remember, you are the one who accused us of not seeking understanding. We are seeking understanding from you in order to follow your admonition. Alan
