  1. Hi Nalini. Gracious comment, encouraging. I must not forget to also welcome you to CW and to thank you for your relational efforts: 6th post and going strong...!
  2. Good one, Donna. Amazing that from such simplicity of a conversion, you are still standing on that Rock of your salvation, nearly four decades later. This testimony, indeed, shows the simplicity of the Gospel in which is the power of God unto salvation. All from a simple request by a sister in law who was obedient to speak for God. That is also a perfect example of a sister in law becoming ... a sister in grace:-).
  3. Fantastic responses. Each one is just spot on with the truth. Sticking to the written scriptures keeps Christianity safe from the world. The world rejects God's love and yet always seeks to insert its human reasonings into the Bible. Like, for example, what we are dealing with here - can a God of Love create hell? Well, I guess we found the true answers from our biblically skilled writers here at CW. I can sum it all by combining Ally's response that, hell was originally prepared for the devil and his angels; with that from Lynnmosher that, God is not just a God of love...and He created all things. Thanks, Igor, for bringing this up here. A subject quite concerning, and perhaps, confusng to many, even Christians. I am also wondering what variations of this question exist out there or any other related questions? Anyone?
  4. Spiritual/Faith Formation in The Book of Habakkuk: For Self-Directed Or Independent Learners. About The Book The practice of communion and fellowship with the Lord in a detailed study of the Book of Habakkuk, and its multiple applications. In particular, as it applies to the end-time move of God. This is a study of the book of Habakkuk in its entire seven-fold dimension for personal revival, namely; Developing Praise as a lifestyle. Seeking God for His power. Seeking the spread of the Gospel to the nations (personal evangelism & missions). Seeking the Word & the Spirit. Seeking the presence of God. Expecting supernatural interventions. Partaking in the end time Harvest. Learners will be taken through a word-based prayer-process in applying truth to personal life. Emphasis is on personal application of truth in practical terms. A Kindle Book - It is available on Amazon and readable on Kindle. The Kindle app is free to download at Amazon and lets you read some of the pages free. Let me have your comments if you do get to do so. The book is also still in public beta mode and so any form of review is appreciated. The link is here: https://www.amazon.com/Spiritual-Faith-Formation-Book-Habakkuk-ebook/dp/B081LHS261
  5. Hi Rick, Congrats...and praise be to God for this achievement!
  6. Good on you, Craig and your wife, for a very blessed service life. It was such a joy reading your story that I almost forgot I came in here to Meet & Greet, and to join the house to welcome you to CW. Thanks for sharing. A big welcome!
  7. A Message On What Christmas Means To All Religions. Time was when Prophets backed by the Angels that spoke to them (Angels of darkness or light) initiated different religious sects and world religions. Some of those God-seeking Prophets missed the Truth but still founded those sects or religions anyway. This was necessary so humanity can still have a religious way to attempt to reach the invisible God. That is, to still retain its conscience and continue to have a consciousness of God, regardless of the darkness and wickedness abounding all through the ages. God permitted that imperfect scenario for an extended era of human history due to the imperfection of the human condition. Although that was never God’s perfect will. Those were the eras of human ignorance until the Son of God came to earth in due season. God’s Son, God’s Word to humanity, then came about to replace all Prophets and all religions, as the Scripture shows: Acts 17:30-31: And the times of this ignorance by humanity God has overlooked; but now He commands all men everywhere to repent because he has appointed a Son (not any of those Prophets or the Angels that spoke to them), by whom also He made the worlds in the first place and by whom He will judge the world. Of this, God has given a clear assurance that he will do so by raising His Son from the dead. Why is that a clear assurance? Think about this: No other Prophet, no, not as the founder of Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc. ever claimed to be the Son of God. If any attempted to do so, none was raised by God from the dead. Nor proven by the lived experiences of their followers to be alive forevermore. Not one in human history. This is regardless of the many false prophets in history who were always caught out to be so, before or after their death. The Living Son of God, therefore, stands alone in the realm of deity far above any Prophet, Angel, or religion. He stands evidently as the only sinless One who gave Himself as a sacrificial Lamb for the sins of the world. He then stands in the position of Saviour and Lord between all humanity and the invisible God. He stands as the Way, the Truth and the Life, to all people in all religions [Continued as Part 2].
  8. Concerning Climate Change, Barnaby Joyce Suggests To Australians, On Christmas Eve, To Respect God Or Be Nailed. A Rejoinder By Paul E. Momoh: Merry Christmas! “The Guardian” reports that, "Barnaby Joyce says he is ‘sick of the government being in my life’ as he urged Australians to respect God, otherwise ‘we’re going to get nailed’…declaring that ‘new taxes are not the way to address it…Now you don’t have to convince me the climate is not changing, it is changing’ he says” (theguardian.com/australia-news of Christmas day 25/12/2019). I may not be a big fan of Barnaby Joyce (Australia’s former Deputy Prime Minister) for all the shenanigans, political drama, ethical and moral fiasco, which he took both his family and this nation through. That was about two years ago (My prayer, best wishes, and thoughts are with both his first and latest family). Nonetheless, I must admit that the true wisdom that came out of his mouth on Christmas Eve, 2019 (in a short video interview with the Guardian as earlier referenced) made me think, boy oh boy, are we having God speak through a Barnaby Joyce, pretty much as God spoke through a Donkey (not to suggest he is a donkey in any way)?. That Donkey-Balaam encounter turned out to be an all-time prophecy. It became a guiding light for a nation then terribly stressed-out in its own time of national crises. We sure are in similar times and seasons with the ongoing climate change. We need all the answers to the table. Let’s be clear. No other Book prophesied changes in the climate like the Christian Bible did. That was centuries well ahead of its initial occurrence. In tons of verses, the Bible predicts a massive change in climate and indicates such to occur in the last days, and the event as the beginning of sorrows (Matthew 24:3-14; Joel 2:28-32; Dan 12:1; Rev 7:1-3; etc.). The change in climate, therefore, is biblically underscored. The brouhaha called climate change is what is arguably a political stunt and a socio-economic circus that will soon come to an abrupt end. History is about to repeat itself. Its latter end is doomed to be another circus of blame-game arising from a failed dream. Time will fail me to allude to both medieval and modern history. So, I will only briefly refer to an event in recent history in what follows. Climate Change is a true reminder of the bogus Y2K money-making hype in the lead up to the year 2000. "All computers may crash; airplanes grounded, and bla bla bla", so goes the hype that stoked fear and got big money moving. Although there was some truth in it (as the reality of the change of climate is today), the Y2K brouhaha and its socio-economic scam came to an abrupt end the world over in one day, on New Year day, 2000. The sky as we know it did not fall. The issue then, for many Christians, is not in any way a denial of the change in the climate (note that I use the term, change in the climate, intentionally). It is rather a rejection of the gross deception, political hypocrisy, love-of-money, and the burgeoning, money-spinning climate enterprises, undergirded and masqueraded under the guise of climate change. For, as the wise saying goes, what goes around always comes around. Yea, sure, it did come around, only that this time around, the historically proven change to climate was renamed and branded Climate Change. At the end of the road, it would have plunged nations into debts, their citizenry into economic hardships, with no tangible progress. By then, billions and billions of tax-payers’ funded dollars would have comfortably ended up in the drain. Oh, sorry, did I just say drain? No please; comfortably soft-landed in the bank accounts of clever individuals, their phony enterprises and that of their political cronies. In so saying, I do not intend to generalise on this serious matter in any way. Many of the individuals, corporations, and businesses entangled are innocent, unaware of the underlying intrigues and manipulations. They are just moving with the crowd and being socially responsive to the tidal waves of political correctness. Indeed, may I say that the concept and project called climate change is a spiritual diversion from its intended eschatological purpose. That is, to prove the reason and season for people and nations to humble themselves and seek divine intervention from God. This is the ultimate cure for climate change without a further dollar spent. Again, these scriptures do apply here: Luke 21:25-33; Matthew 24:3-14; Joel 2:28-32. Hence, Mr. Joyce’s down-to-earth offering to all Australians afford a clear choice that should kick start a renewed conversation on climate change. It portends to take the dialogue to a more critically advanced and meaningful engagement. It holds a prospect to bring back to the table a large chunk of the alienated society of religious and non-religious folks. These are normal, everyday people, who have seen through the social ploy, the economic plot, and/or the spiritual diversion in climate change. They stepped away from the public debate lest they should be vilified by the climate mob and their paymasters. In a nutshell, Mr. Joyce is saying that we now have a clear choice between: (1) More taxes and more power to the government for intervention both on climate change and in our private lives, Or - (2) Less taxes and less power to the government while we respect someone out there in the sky (called the Almighty God) as the only option to more taxes and power to the government. Beyond the foregoing two options, there is obviously no third way around a change to the climate as far as the history of western civilization is concerned. Rather, as the Guardian’s report concluded, “With the camera pointing to the sky, the former deputy prime minister urges Australians to respect God. ‘There’s a higher authority that’s beyond our comprehension – right up there in the sky. And unless we understand that’s got to be respected, then we are just fools. We're going to get nailed”.
  9. Hi Jennifer. Thank you for bringing glory to Jesus, the Saviour, and blessing us heaps!
  10. Hi Jennifer. You are right. This is a classic testimony to the scripture, all things work together for good ...given what relief and healing this has meant to you and daughter. I know this will resonate immensely with many readers here...and the blessing will continue wherever this is further shared. Amen.
