  1. Just an FYI...this-> ( ), in my opinion is bashing those that believe in the manifestation of the Spirit. Sada
  2. John 1

    One more thing....what I have learned is that the verse John 1:1 is the most discussed verse in the Bible. when I was wanting to study the book of John, I was not aware of it's controversy between denominations until now. I do not feel so bad because I just couldn't make sense of it; logically. I agree that the Bible needs to be studied with an acknowledgement that it is the Word of God. Accept it or deny it, that's what it comes down to. I am not running away from the discussion rather I am running to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ in an effort to know Him. May the Lord bless you in your efforts to teach His Word. Cheryl
  3. Journal Of A Camp Counselor

    I have been asked many questions about being a Camp Counselor. So, I have decided to create a journal of daily occurances that I feel help me prepare to do the Lord's work. To reveal myself in this public forum is not one that I particularly like, but I pray that it will help those of you that have asked me to do so. Here we go... Thursday, July 13, 2005: I am planning on going to a funeral today. A family member of an acquaintance died and I feel the need to support them. The desire comes from a recent experience that I had a few weeks ago. One of our family members died after a lengthy illness. Although I felt prepared to deal with the emotional feelings, I had no idea how the Lord would touch my heart. The moment when a person walks in to view the body is one that we all dread. However, I found it comforting when this person came in and stood there, for the longest time, just staring as their eyes filled with sorrowful tears. I asked myself, "Had they known each other?" when our eyes met we both nodded at each other; I felt the need to pray for this family. One by one, people came in, stood for a second, looked over and nodded. Not all of them had tears in their eyes as this other person. I wondered why I felt a connection with this person and not the others. I had not known about their family members illness, until I heard of the death. Understanding was given to this person because they were in the 'same boat', so to speak. Understanding transcended spoken words to fulfill the Lord's promise of comfort for my family. When a person dies, the Lord understands. He gave His Son so that we, those who believe, repent and turn from our sinful nature, could live. I can imagine the Lord, looking down on His Son as He was being crucified by those afraid of the truth, with tears in His eyes...He acknowledges the sacrifice and nods. Sada

    Zechariah 14 1 A day of the Lord is coming when your plunder will be divided among you. 2 I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city. 3 Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights in the day of battle. 4 On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south. 5 You will flee by my mountain valley, for it will extend to Azel. You will flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the Lord my God will come, and all the holy ones with him. 6 On that day there will be no light, no cold or frost. 7 It will be a unique day, without daytime or nighttime--a day known to the Lord. When evening comes, there will be light. 8 On that day living water will flow out from Jerusalem, half to the eastern sea and half to the western sea, in summer and in winter. 9 The Lord will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one Lord, and his name the only name. 10 The whole land, from Geba to Rimmon, south of Jerusalem, will become like the Arabah. But Jerusalem will be raised up and remain in its place, from the Benjamin Gate to the site of the First Gate, to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the royal winepresses. 11 It will be inhabited; never again will it be destroyed. Jerusalem will be secure. 12 This is the plague with which the Lord will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths. 13 On that day men will be stricken by the Lord with great panic. Each man will seize the hand of another, and they will attack each other. 14 Judah too will fight at Jerusalem. The wealth of all the surrounding nations will be collected--great quantities of gold and silver and clothing. 15 A similar plague will strike the horses and mules, the camels and donkeys, and all the animals in those camps. 16 Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, and to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. 17 If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, they will have no rain. 18 If the Egyptian people do not go up and take part, they will have no rain. The Lord will bring on them the plague he inflicts on the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. 19 This will be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. 20 On that day ~holy to the Lord will be inscribed on the bells of the horses, and the cooking pots in the Lord's house will be like the sacred bowls in front of the altar. 21 Every pot in Jerusalem and Judah will be holy to the Lord Almighty, and all who come to sacrifice will take some of the pots and cook in them. And on that day there will no longer be a Canaanite in the house of the Lord Almighty.

    Admin, It would be a shame for this post to get lost as time goes by. Can it be pinned? I would like to direct some people to this post and it would be easier to find. Thank you, Cheryl

    Thank you for posting my prayer. As I stated before, give me some time and I will study what you have posted. Have patience. Cheryl
  10. Journal Of A Camp Counselor

    For those of you that have been praying for my family, thank you. For those of you that assume things, here is what has been happening over the past month: 1. Uncle Al died 2. Uncle Fred died 3. Co-worker died of cancer 4. Co-worker and her husband brutally murdered less than a mile from my house 5. 2 family members had a biopsy (have not received the results yet) 6. Danny died in a car accident (longtime friend) 7. Nephew Victor (20 years of age) died in a car accident - funeral is this Thursday Within all of this I have to fit in my own doctors appointments and school started. Please learn to pray instead of jumping to conclusions. Cheryl 2 Corinthians 6:3-13 3.We put no stumbling block in anyone's path, so that our ministry will not be discredited. 4.Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses; 5.in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger; 6.in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love; 7.in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left; 8.through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report; genuine, yet regarded as impostors; 9.known, yet regarded as unknown; dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed; 10.sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything. 11.We have spoken freely to you, Corinthians, and opened wide our hearts to you. 12.We are not withholding our affection from you, but you are withholding yours from us. 13.As a fair exchange--I speak as to my children--open wide your hearts also.

    Now I can understand why a single verse can be so simple, yet so difficult! Give me a while to read this over. Thank you for being patient. Cheryl
  12. What Music Are You Listening To ?

    Dr Demento!!!! Loved it... Especially "The Fish Head Song"...I haven't heard that in ages. Sometimes I sing it or hum it to myself when I am bored: "Fish heads, fish heads, rolly polly fish heads; Fish heads, fish heads, eat um up yum!" It was the silliest song...EVER! Ahhhh nostalgia! Next thing you know we will start talking about Mr. Bill! Cheryl

  14. Dealing With The Basics

    "Playing Both Sides of the Fence" thread ; post #7 in your reply to me: Not a healthy one...Plus the core tenets of molokanism exclude people based solely upon race. Why would a Bible based Christian stand for that? Regarding Christians in compromise, no. If the s&l was gone, people were not excluded based upon their skin color and the Bible was taught, you might be able to convince me otherwise You are just playing with me. C'mon!
  15. Dealing With The Basics

    Silly guy, I do not have an agenda, I was just stating that the conversation that was brought up regarding some of the questions that you posed led to other discussions. It was an example. Also, I am under the impression from your other answers that: You can not be convinced that a Christian can attend a Molokan church as their primary place of worship. No one will be able to convince you otherwise. So....why give my own answer? Cheryl
  16. Dealing With The Basics

    I don't feel obligated to answer since they are rhetorical questions. You will not accept an answer, so I am not going to give one. I did consider it. I discussed it with quite a few people. It opened up discussion and we talked about the saving grace of the Lord, Jesus Christ. It led to other discussions, for example: Who is washed in the Blood of the Lamb vs. who is washed in water. Cheryl
  17. John 1

    I agree that the "the Word" in this sentence represents Jesus. So if we replace the name "Jesus" for the name "the Word": In the beginning was [Jesus], and [Jesus] was with God, and [Jesus] was God. My problem with this 'easy' verse is the word [with], what is the Greek interpretation for [with] in this verse? How can Jesus be [with] God and 'be' [*form of was*] God? What does it mean to be [with] God? I guess that'll be a good start. Student Sada We could start where we left off: With the word 'with' Cheryl
  18. John 1

    In the thread "Dealing with the basics"...post # 14, I assumed that you knew Steadfast answered for you: My bad. I am not avoiding an answer. I posted scripture to confirm scripture. It is a simple and straightforward answer. Scripture to confirm scripture. Also, I am not ashamed to admit that there is plenty that I need to learn. Thus, the bible study. I was happy to find the following scripture because it goes along with my search for "What makes God happy." Cheryl

    Seeking, Seeing as I am being viewed as a 'fool' by Steadfast, I will only post scripture as my answer so as not to offend. Cheryl
  20. Who Do You Minister To?

    It is very interesting how you answer questions with questions....will you discuss biblical matters with someone that you do not view as a brother or sister in Christ. Very simple: Yes or no. Cheryl ps: I contend that you do know about my faith by the reports given to you, however, it does not fit into your understanding, so you dismiss it and try to deflect from the truth.
  21. Who Do You Minister To?

    What is KPN?
  22. Dealing With The Basics

    How could Seekings statement (below) be called a quote as you assert (above)? I discerne you are not an honest speaking individual. I would think the attribute of speaking honestly would be an essential, BEFORE screening a candidate for a camp counselor position. Does that sense to you? SF: I said I added the other quotes because I believe they support his actions, Seeking is a big boy and can say if he will discuss biblical matters with someone that he does not view as a brother or sister in Christ. Cheryl
  23. Dealing With The Basics

    Seeking, You seem to forget that I have been around for a long time also, no need for the backtracking. I have let you know what I thought that you were saying, if it is wrong, just let me know. I pray that your heart is softened. I pray that the Lord open my eyes to see you as He sees you, to understand you as he understands you and to accept you as my brother in Christ even though you deny me as your sister in Christ. Cheryl
  24. John 1

    This is the post that I asked the question. Here it is again: If you do not view me as a sister in Christ then how could we have a biblical discussion. It is your rule or boundary or limitation or whatever you want to call it. If I am wrong about this rule (my word, not yours) please let me know. Yes or no. Cheryl
  25. John 1

    This question to Seeking remains unanswered, so my understanding is that he will not have a biblical discussion with me.
