I wish I had a nickel for every time that truth has been abused to support some questionable teaching.
Please someone, quick, put some sugar in the center of a white hanky and tie a string around it so they can suck on it.
At least give them some pats on their pointy tearful heads.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh playing the Stations

Thanks for your Biblical, wise and accurate words yet again.
However, Christ did at times call folks
—white washed tombs;
—sons of satan.
When I encounter similar attitudes as plagued Him, I’m willing to call a spade a spade.
Yeah, there’s plenty room for sobering error and we will certainly be judged according to the criteria we use.
Nevertheless, a lot of these obnoxious sorts have been throwing irrational and VERY UNBIBLICAL rocks my direction for a LOT of years. The evidence they have listed hereon is extensive in terms of the absurdities, destructiveness etc.
I think your point about insecurities is very apt. However, these characters are also very very VERY STRONG personalities regardless of their fragilities in various areas.
If they can so brazenly and so relentlessly throw out their garbage making ALMIGHTY GOD out to be a liar about HIS EVERLASTING PROMISES TO ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB
then they can jolly well learn to handle the responses such outrages engender.
You must think I keep track!
Get your first nickle from satan - he started distorting Truth in the garden. Nothing new under the Sun.
Psalm 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love you.
Psalm 29:11 The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace.
Psalm 102:14 For her stones are dear to your servants; her very dust moves them to pity.
Isaiah 66:10 “Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her, all you who love her; rejoice greatly with her, all you who mourn over her.
Jeremiah 29:7 Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.”
Fascinating . . .
outrageous assertions that make ALMIGHTY GOD OUT TO BE A LIAR
is evidently considered quite “Christian.”
Sheesh. What hubris!
When God made man it was that we should all be His children, He chose us, over the animals, over the angels, to be His children. All of us. The smaller number who, after "The Fall," have received Christ's gift through Faith are not the only ones to whom God offers this gift, nor are we alone "the elect" as God makes this offer to all mankind.
That is the difference between the Truth of Scripture's teaching, and the Calvinist twist which would make the "saved" somehow special. We are just as vile a pack of sinners as are those who have not Faith. We are merely saved because of our Faith. Anyone who says otherwise makes a liar out of Christ, and diminishes what He accomplished on the cross.
Perhaps I am being simplistic but I trust God to be Omniscient, Omnipotent, and Omnipresent, and He will enlighten all who in truth seek to know Him.
Blessed be the LORD!
Might be simplistic, but still truthful.
” For the Word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of the soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 KJV
We are the hands and feet, and voice of God on earth. When we do our part, God does the rest.
MATTHEW 5:44" ... and Pray for those that despitefully use you and persecute you."...
"Matthew 5:44 (King James Version) 44.But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you."
Thank you for your presenting God's Word in clarity. That is it!
“May we hear well done my good and faithful servant.”
When you have a few minutes. Scroll down a little for the article.
Thanks yet again for your very wise and very Biblical words and exhortations.
I essentially agree.
I suppose I will likely persistently apply same differently than you would. You’re likely a much loftier saint than I am. LOL. Sigh.
I do care for all involved. I do pray for all involved.
I have a mandate to be me . . . as God made, trained, taught, conditioned me to be . . . not someone else. It’s challenging enough to be me! LOL.
PLEASE ALWAYS FEEL FREE TO EXHORT ME—PUBLICLY OR OTHERWISE AS YOU SEE FIT.
Satan's claim wasn't "God never changes.". Quite the opposite. This is a new tactic.
Are you familiar with all the NT says about Jerusalem?
Thanks. May get to it this evening.
>>You’re treating his somewhat unclear words as if there are infallible and trump all other arguments.<<
Unclear? Only those trying to twist them to conform to a preconceived belief system would read them any other way. Revelation was clearly written between 90 and 96AD. Not only was that confirmed by Irenaeus but fits with other Biblical prophecy.
White hanky? You mean this Pentecostal hanky from Peter Popoff? The huckster and idiot who thinks that the US issues 25 dollar bills as currency? Or did you have another white Pentecostal hanky in mind?
From Peter Popoff: December 1997.
Dear Brother Smith,
I have been reaching out to God on your behalf ever since I heard from you. I have been praying and listening for God’s Word concerning your needs and your special blessing. I’ve heard the voice of the Lord concerning these needs and also another need that you have in your life.
THE LORD IS LEADING ME TO LOAN YOU MY “FAITH HANDKERCHIEF”
TO START A MIRACLE IN YOUR LIFE.
Brother Smith, God has kept you on my heart. God has awakened me at night and I have sat up in my bed with tears running down my cheeks, crying out to God for You! You must listen to me.
I said, “Lord, You sent the Smith family to me. I know You did. I am praying for You to send to the Smith family the same kind of blessing, the same kind of great miracle, that only You can send. Lord, through this anointed red Bible Handkerchief send the Smith family the same kind of miracle You sent to dear Sister Davies in Los Angeles when she needed that $1,778.00 miracle. Lord, remember how in that powerful service we were having Sister Davies proved You, according to Malachi 3:10, with the largest bills she said she had in her billfold that day, ($25.00 that she needed) and then You blessed her with that $1,778.00. John, as I kept praying I said` “Lord, I know you are no respecter of persons. I know as surely as You honored the faith and obedience of Your servant Paul, Your anointed instrument for his generation, and .. through their faith and obedience the people with needs received a special TOUCH as the handkerchief from his body touched them I feel deeply that You will honor my faith and obedience as I take Your healing power to my generation. I know, Lord, you won’t perform a SPECIAL MIRACLE for one and not for another who acts with the same faith and obedience. Lord, I ask you to do it again. Send the same kind of miracle this time for John. Let your miracle power flow to 123 Main. Through this anointed Faith Handkerchief let great miracles start happening in Chicago.” . . . .
John, God spoke to my heart and mind and said, “Send the Smith family your anointed faith handkerchief just like the apostle Paul sent out handkerchiefs in Acts 19:11 12 if you really want the Smith’s to be blessed. If I moved for the apostle Paul, I will also move for the Smith family for I am no respecter of persons.”
I have obeyed God and loaned you my faith handkerchief. Now I want you to print your name on it. It is a must! I must have your name on my handkerchief!
BROTHER SMITH, DON’T MISS GOD. FOLLOW THESE FAITH INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY IF YOU WANT THE MIRACLE I HAVE CLAIMED FOR YOU. HERE IS HOW USE MY FAITH HANDKERCHIEF.
Acts 19:11-12 says: “And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul: So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them and the evil spirits went out of them.”
Now I am obeying God and loaning you my blessed handkerchief. I use the word “loan” because I must send my faith handkerchief to another family who has a need after you use it and print your name on it. Please do not keep my handkerchief! I must send it to another family when you send it back. You will not need it after tonight, John.
Here are the faith steps you are to take, in Jesus’ Name:
1. Print your name in the center of my handkerchief. Yes, either print or write your name.
2. John, open your Bible to Acts, Chapter 19, Verses 11 and 12.
3. Lay my faith handkerchief with your name printed on it on this scripture and leave it there for tonight only. Only one night without fail.
Please, Brother Smith, in the morning get my “Faith Bible Handkerchief out of your Bible, place it into this self addressed envelope and return it to me. I will pay the postage for you. This is so important! I repeat, do not keep this “Faith Handkerchief” and please do not break this flowing of God’s spirit from my home here in Upland to your home there in Chicago. Rush my “Faith Handkerchief”, which I have felt led to loan you tonight, back to me for I must write you something in the Spirit that is coming to your door. I must take this handkerchief (with your name on it) and hold it in my hands and pray a special prayer for you. I feel a special miracle for you and someone you love.
Right now, I am asking you to get out your largest bill. God sees your sacrifice, and it will be a sacrifice. God sees. It may be a $50.00 bill or $25.00. It may be a check. But step out in faith and give it to the work of Jesus Christ as a seed. Now give God a sacrificial offering. Give your biggest bill (or check). If it is a $50.00 bill, or $25.00. God sees. And ask God for His best blessings to be bestowed upon you.
The Holy Spirit is in this letter and is speaking to you now while you read these words. Please obey the Holy Spirit. The greater your sacrifice, the greater your blessings. I am waiting on this powerful “Faith Handkerchief” back from you.
Of your unsubstantiated claims? Obviously not.
Perhaps we can use Rex Humbard's nail to pin your claims down:
