Experiencing God Day By day:
Come and See
They said to Him, "Rabbi" (which is to say, when translated, Teacher), "where are You staying?" 39 He said to them, "Come and see." They came and saw where He was staying, and remained with Him that day.(John 1:38b-39)

There comes a time for each of us when merely talking about the Christian pilgrimage is not sufficient. We must actually set out on the journey! We can spend many hours debating and discussing issues related to the Christian life, but this means little if we never actually step out and follow Christ!
*
For generations, the coming of the Messiah had been pondered and predicted by the nation of Israel. Perhaps no topic garnered more discussion among Jews than the nature and work of the Messiah. Andrew had listened to John the Baptist and had heard of the coming Messiah. Now, suddenly, he was face to face with the One he had yearned to see! Andrew’s mind was filled with questions he longed to ask. Instead of entering into a theological dialogue with Andrew, however, Jesus turned and began to walk. Andrew’s questions would not be answered by discussion alone, but by walking with Him.
*
Christianity is not a set of teachings to understand. It is a Person to follow. As he walked with Jesus, Andrew watched Jesus heal the sick, teach God’s wisdom, and demonstrate God’s power. Andrew not only learned about God; he actually experienced Him!
*
Moments will come when you stand at a crossroads with your Lord. You will have a hundred questions for Him. Rather than answering the questions one by one, Jesus may say,“Put on your shoes, step out onto the road, and follow Me.” As you walk daily with Him, Jesus will answer your questions, and you will discover far more than you even knew to ask.
Amen. Thanks for the reminder HFN...

Female prophets in the Old Testament.

Prophetess is used six times in the Old Testament.It refers to Miriam(Exodus15:20)Deborah(Jud ges 4:4)Huldah(2 Kings 22:14)Isaiah wife the prophetess(Isaiah 8:3) and Noadiah a prohetess who opposed Nehemiah(Nehemiah 6:14)Deborah and Huldah were the most important since they exercised significant responsibilities.

Hmmmmm... you know what Christian Brothers and Sisters? This testimony by ex-homosexual Carl Wright has pretty much convinced me that some people are born gay. He's not coming from a science perspective but a scriptural one which I must have overlooked 10 dozen times.
But in this truly inspirational testimony... Carl talks about how he was molested at a young age (which I think is also common among gays... I could be wrong in that assessment)... but how he had gay desires before the molestation even began.
Like the other testimonies, he says that it is a struggle and he fell in love for the first time in his life with a person of the same sex and begged God to keep him, basically. So anyways, he also talks about discipline and what led him to finally strengthen himself in the Lord and to depart this particular sin.
So... anyways, he has convinced me from a scriptural standpoint that a person can be born gay and gives the scripture. His testimony is 16 minutes long so just letting you know in case you don't have that much time spend on this.

Hey there Qu, I never believed anyone is actually born gay, I just believe that unclean spirits can enter therein ( the body ) at the earliest ages, JMHO.

Prophetesses in the New Testament.

Several women prophets are seen in the New Testament.Anna was a prophetess(Luke 2:36)and Philip's four daughters prophesied(Acts 21:9)Women were among those who spoke in other tongues on the day of Pentecost(Acts 2:1-4)which fulfilled a prophecy of Joel's that your sons and your daughters shall prophesy.(Joel 2:28)

<quoted text from my book>
THE UNSEEN PROTECTOR
Hear me when I call. O God...have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer. Psalm 4:1
One More Step - Thelma Leavy
I have always loved the snow. I'm eighty-five and legally blind, but I can see light and some shapes - and I still get excited by fluffy flakes. That's why I ventured out late one snowy afternoon last winter.
I shuffled down my long driveway to my favourite Douglas fir. I went from tree to tree, shaking snow from the boughs. Soon I noticed that I was surrounded by vague and unfamiliar shapes. I'd gone too far into the woods! I turned and started walking back toward my driveway. But which way had I come? Everything was so white - and cold.
The snow fell harder. Wiping tears from my eyes, I rushed forward in a panic. "God", I cried, "please help me".
Abruptly I stopped in my tracks.
I stood perfectly still as a feeling of relief broke through my fear. Then I turned completely around and struck out in a new direction. Finally I came to a fence. It was my boundary line! I followed that fence, just hung to it, until I reached my gate. "Thank you, God", I said.
The next morning, Dan, the young man who shovels snow for me, rushed in; he was alarmed by the footsteps he had seen on the snow-covered property. "Don't worry", I quickly explained, "They're mine".
"Mrs Leavy", Dan said, "I followed those footsteps. They lead up to the edge of the riverbank, right to where the drop-off is steepest. If you'd taken even one more step forward..."
But that was where I had stopped and called out - to the one who always leads in the right direction.

AMEN <3
Hey Juice... I'm just about done being caught up again... missed a few. Thank you, the point of the story is somewhat similar to the point of HFN's imho... that is, "stepping out on Faith" though I don't understand (HFN's) or see ahead of me (Yours).

Thank you Drew, as for the weather, South Carolina and particularly the midlands are notorious for false alarms when it comes to snow and the wintry mix ( as I hope is the case here ).

Blessings.

If you get the chance please check the link out... the gentleman (Carl) was pretty seemed very sincere... He's a minister now, I don't know if that would make any difference though. But it was a good testimony IMHO.

Really? That's tragic. Notice that your religion doesn't add a dimension to your life. It replaced it.

Jesus has left the building.
<quoted text>
You're breaking my heart here. Look at how much you have wagered on this bet of yours - on a promise that you have never seen anyone collect on.
its a question of who is more secure in they wager really. because you wagering Jesus and the bible is a myth. I wagering Jesus is God and everything he say will happen to unbelievers including hell is real. I can't speak for no one, but I know I through personal experience alone I'm thoroughly confident in my wager, I hope you are in your wager writer.

Jesus is here right now.

I no need no more dimension than Jesus Christ. Christ is more than enough. No let it break you heart, concern yourself with you, not me. I'm well writer with no regrets. concentrate on you, you is the only person you can influence in any way shape or form.

<quoted text> I'll say that Julius Peppers proved that he still have a lot left in him, I also believe that they depended too much on the combo of Cam Newton and Steve Smith, a young super QB rejuvenating an aging WR. But they're still interesting to watch.
I can't watch them, it's too painful. Smile.

If that defines evil, then your religion is evil. It puts its ghost ahead of everything else, including your family. This is most definitely NOT a family value:
"If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters--yes, even his own life--he cannot be my disciple." - Luke 14:26
You continue to think you more moral than God.

Yes Jesus is to be put before family. No one should come before a committment to Jesus Christ. If you no like it too bad, anyone forcing you to worship Jesus? no.
