My brother David

David is in hospital after several strokes - & expected to die in a day or so.

He is in Southampton 70 miles away, he's never trusted Christ & had a mocking attitude to me - often quoting the school RE teacher who questioned all the basic Bible teaching from a modernist position.

Thanks for prayer - we saw him this afternoon - he looks stable, his left hand was functioning, but the right looked useless. I was able to read & remind him of the Gospel, & pray with him. 

I don't know what to expect in the way of recovery - pray that he will be at peace with God. 

His wife, grandson & our sister were at the hospital. We don't meet very often - a 150 mile round trip is a lot for me. 

I think most of us have families we are concerned about. 

We were scheduled to look after our grandson Michael (2 1/2) today - they've move 120 miles away.They came & we played with him, I cuddled Alexandra (1 month) & quietened her by singing "There's a friend for little children." My son's RC wife Jola is open to such low key witnessing.

May we have a blessed & encouraging Lord's Day.

Ian, I will certainly be in prayer about this situation and ask for church prayer tomorrow, both for your brother's health and especially for his salvation. I am sure that he has had adequate witness in the form of his brother. Let's all just pray that that witness will have sown the seed that will lead him into our Saviors loving arms.

Ian thank for the update on your brother that I may continue to pray for his salvation and full recovery, I'll also be in prayer for Jola

May the Lord comfort the hearts of you and your family with His wonderful peace.

God bless brother

David's son reported a slight improvement in his basic condition - breathing easier & both eyes opening, but now the hospital considers that there is no hope of any normal life. At best he will be bed-ridden & totally dependent for everything. They expect his heart to give out, so will give basic care but not medical treatment.

Please continue to pray for his salvation, as presumably his mind is active. Dying is still living.

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
