I not only grew up in the church, but there was a time where I envisioned no other life for myself than ministry. So I can tell you with absolute certainty that if a pastor had offered me the opportunity to “pray the gay away”– I would have not only consented, I would have begged
I know this because I spent *years* crying myself to sleep, praying, begging God to make me straight. I don’t talk about it much, and maybe I should.

But even growing up in the United Church of Canada– one of the most progressive out there– I was ashamed, I was disgusted by own existence, and I would have given anything to change.

Widow of Zarephath - dangerous faith

The final meal for a woman and her son was about to be made and suddenly a man of God gives a word that she make for him first and then themselves. What will you advise?
The woman believed God and thus secured her family through the famine. Beloved, giving to God and his servant does not reduce you, it actually increases you and prospers you.
As she was going to get it, he called, "And bring me, please, a piece of bread." "As surely as the LORD your God lives," she replied, "I don't have any bread—only a handful of flour in a jar and a little olive oil in a jug.

The LORD bless you, dear ones!

I want to remind you not to leave #Jesus in the manger this year. He's no longer a baby. He is a full-grown, all-powerful Man who shed His Blood and gave His Life so you could defeat every enemy you ever

face - big small and in between.

Many of us grow up learning about 'Baby Jesus' and it becomes ingrained in our spirits and minds that He's small and weak. Meek is not weak. Jesus was humble, but His very Presence terrified demons. We always imagine Him telling the disciples
they were faithless with a smile on His Face and blinking eyelashes. No, Saints, He was reprimanding them. They sat front and center as witnesses to #miracles of every sort. Think. He asked them:

What is wrong with y'all? You still don't know who I AM?!

Think, Believers. Do you

#China's crackdown on its tiny congregation of #Jews. ~100 practising in a community of ~1,000. That such a small group can attract the #CommunistParty’s ire shows how far the suppression goes @TelegraphWorld @Telegraph… #religiousfreedom #Hanukkah
Ancestors of those in #China claiming Jewish heritage – prob merchants from Persia – settled >1,000 yrs ago in Kaifeng, then a bustling imperial capital during Northern Song Dynasty. Through dynasties, wars, natural disasters, Cultural Revolution, they kept their history alive
Pressure now renewed under Chinese leader Xi Jinping's campaign against foreign influence, unsanctioned religions - all part of push to 'Sinicise' faith in #China. But the Kaifeng #Jews are a resilient bunch - as I discovered on a recent visit

Many Believers are afraid of deliverance, or perhaps don't think they need it, but it's required for abundant living.

I had a great deliverance session last this past week. A tough case. Those are my favorite because I'm a tough case.
I believe there are 3 levels of deliverance cases:

70% - most people. They just want enough to get through life as a Christian & go to Heaven.

No weirdy stuffs. No prophets. Just work, family, church sometimes, may or may not own a Bible/open it/pray.

They're more human will oriented than knowledgeable of the supernatural aspects of Elohim, The Divine Creator and His role in the every day workings of the human experience.

"You can do anything you set your mind to, and if GOD helps, that's even betterer."

Considering what's happening in the world today, it causes me to look back on moments in history when the antichrist was publicly, visibly & obviously flaunting his demonic end time agenda as is happening now.

Think of when Yeshua headed toward Yerusalayim.
The demonic's attempt to bring about the destruction of salvation & hope for mankind was on full display. satan thought he had bested Yahweh (again ... silly fool) and that men could no longer be redeemed. But as an ex-employee who's no longer privy to the workings of El-ohim, he
he ended up looking as dumb as these lying, cheating demonrat children of his are about to look come January.

Look at what ushered in The Dark Ages. Again the antichrist spirit attempted to take everything foundational out of the way #Christians worship and relate to The Three.

The only reason Jesus endured the humiliation, pain, misery, and horror was because He loved you more than anything else. Jesus didn’t want to live for eternity without you.
Live life the way Jesus did—for our heavenly Father and for others. #JesusChangesEverything🙏🏻 Image

Everything on earth belongs to the Lord. He is the master and ruler of the universe.
Be a good borrower. Take care of the things God trusts you to manage for Him so you can receive the blessings He wants to give you for a job well done.

In September 1990, Petition for special leave to appeal (Civil) was filed against the judgement dated August 30, 1990, passed by Bombay High Court.
(1/n) @TOIIndiaNews #TipuSultan #TipuSultanJayanti Image
The Petitioners had produced the relevant Gazetteers of #Mysore and #Kerala and the letters of #TipuSultan at the time of hearing at the #BombayHighCourt. They had proved that:
1. He claimed to be a #Paigambar.

2. He adopted the title of #Baadshah.

3. He sometimes designated his own State as "Sircar-e-Khodadad -e- usud-ilhye -e- Ahmady" - in plain language, an #IslamicState.

1. Faith is meant for spiritual things.

Faith is misused and abused.

Using faith on earth w/o rigorous testing is damaging that what God gave you to connect you to Him.
2. Think of #Gambling...doesn't the house always win?

What is going through the mind of those who sit at the #SlotMachines?

Whoa!!!!!!! Think of the #Internet.

Shouldn't we #GuardYourHeart?

What of #Hope?

I often think of the #BookOfJob #OldTestament.
3. Are you tossed around by the wind and waves?

Ephesians 4:14
"Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming."

A more literal rendering of the risen Jesus' words to Thomas is: "Do not be unbelieving, but believing." (John 20:27) Faith, says the Bible, is a gift, not something we can decide to have. But it won't come or grow if we refuse to stand under, listen to the witness about Jesus.
I'm a former atheist who, for a decade, refused to listen to or believe in the witness for Jesus, as God the Son, Who died and rose for us. Then, in the fellowship of an amazing congregation, I started to listen: to the down-to-earth Christians who loved and were...
...grateful to Jesus for God's charitable love, His grace; to the Word of Scripture and the Word shared in sermons and gatherings. As I began to stand under this witness, I began to understand. More than that, God gave me faith...

1. By purgatory, no more is meant than a middle state of souls; viz., of purgation from sin by temporary chastisements, or a punishment of some sin inflicted after
#AllSoulsDay #purgatory
2. death, which is not eternal.

As to the place, manner, or kind of these sufferings, nothing has been defined by the Church,it is interwoven with the fundamental articles of the Christian faith.

For, as eternal torments are the portion of all souls which

3. depart this life under the guilt of mortal sin, and everlasting bliss of those who die in a state of grace, so it is an obvious consequence that among the latter, many souls may be defiled with lesser stains, and cannot enter immediately into the joy of the Lord.

1. The Church in this great festival honours all the saints. It is an image of that eternal great feast which God himself continually celebrates in heaven with all his saints, whom we humbly join in praising his adorable goodness
#AllSaintsDay #AllSaints
2. for all his mercies.

In this and all other festivals of the saints, God is the only object of supreme worship.

To what an immense height of immortal glory has he raised the saints! and by what means? His grace conducted them by humility, patience, charity, and penance,
3. through ignominies, torments, pains, sorrows, mortifications, and temptations to joy and bliss, by the cross to their crowns.

And casting their crowns before his throne they give to him all the glory of their triumphs. "His gifts alone in us he crowns."

1. For the Christian penance is something very personal between him and God. He may no longer walk barefoot in the snow but still the practice of penance has to mean more than 10 Hail Marys between Confession and Coronation Street.

2. [E]nhance prayer through penance,..offer some token of shame and sorrow, to meditate on sinfulness, to reflect on Infinite Goodness, to bear witness through penance which rarely fails to provoke curiosity or conversely to keep the penance so secret that God alone sees.

Nor is penance confined only to our own sins but rather can also be a recognition of the sinfulness of the world we live in. In ‘Sackcloth and Ashes’ I refer to the example of some German nuns who after the Second World War

Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

For whatsoever things you have spoken in darkness, shall be published in the light (Lk12:1-7 #HolyMass #Oct16)DR #Bible Image

A tweet thread on AYUSH.
I think these traditional medicine systems are here to stay. They are of course pure junk, totally unscientific, snake-oil, voodoo medicine.. call it whatever pejorative term you like.. but they are here to stay.
Why are they here to stay?
Well they are here to stay quite simply because many many people have faith in them. The source of this faith and whether it is faith backed by research is debatable but the fact is people have faith in them. Mainly upper caste Hindus when it comes to Ayurveda,
But homeopathy, Unani and Siddha have their own adherents.China is promoting its #TCM - traditional Chinese medicine and the English speaking world has its #AlternativeMedicine movement. On TCM see:…

An anointing can be explained in some instances as a special or momentary Grace loosed upon someone. It's manifestation of The Spirit working through them.

For example, I was just in a place where The LORD often meets me and Revelation flowed freely after only a
2. tiny bit of worship. Actually it was only simple acknowledgement of His Goodness, Existence and Provision - Prov. 3:5-6.

I can access His Presence in that place and 'feel' His Power on me to receive the Revelation He desired to share with me at that time while in that place.
3. So, in familiar terms to spirit-filled Believers I would say:

His Presence is here or The Anointing is on me.

At that time, I was given Revelation or greater understanding about how to teach a Biblical concept that many struggle with b/c of being churched and not taught to

1. Jonah is the fifth of the Minor Prophets.
Apart from the book traditionally ascribed to him, Jonah is mentioned once in the Old Testament: 2 Kings 14:25.

3. But the Prophet tries to escape the task assigned to him. He boards a ship bound for that port, but a violent storm overtakes him, and on his admission that he is the cause of it, he is cast overboard.

1. St Fausta and St Evilasius were 4th century martyrs. Their feast day is #Sep20.

St Fausta, a girl of thirteen, was brought up in the Faith. Having lost her parents
#StFausta #StEvilasius #Christian #martyrs Image
2. at a young age, she led a virtuous and prayerful life. Following accusations that she was a Christian, she publicly answered in the affirmative. Thereupon she was dispatched to Evilasius, a pagan priest, for him to persuade her to change her mind and to sacrifice to the
3. pagan idols.

Coaxing and threats having been in vain, they locked her up in a wooden box, but no amount of trying to saw it did damage the box. St Fausta remained unharmed, guarded by divine power.

But be zealous for the better gifts. And I shew unto you yet a more excellent way.

If I speak with the tongues of men, and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. (1Cor12:31-13:13 #HolyMass #Sep16) ~ DouayRheims #Bible #BibleVerses
2. Charity is patient, is kind: charity envieth not, dealeth not perversely; is not puffed up; is not ambitious, seeketh not her own, is not provoked to anger, thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth with truth; beareth all things, believeth all things.. #love
3. hopeth all things, endureth all things...

We see now through a glass in a dark manner; but then face to face..

And now there remain faith, hope, and charity, these three: but the greatest of these is charity. (1Cor12:31-13:13) ~ DR #Bible #Corinthians #faith #hope #charity

There is an understanding of God that a man will have that can only be gotten through faith in God and in His son Jesus Christ.

There are sacrifices we give unto God, be it sacrifices of our heart or of our substance that are sacrifices of #Faith.

Like Abel and Solomon, God responded to Abraham's sacrifice of faith. See Hebrews 11:17

It is by #Faith that we can please God, for through this we learn of the testimony of Enoch -- the man that walked with God for 300 years and did not see death.

Hebrews 11:5-6
Genesis 5:21-24
