I have been sensing something is coming and also have the peace that God is protecting His own and giving the strength, courage to endure until the end!! Perfect love cast out fear!

Blessings

The message of the gospel is the same in any language. Jesus Christ is the only way, truth and life and He is returning soon.

Different Modes of Getting A Message Across....................

Certain times may call for being subtle, and others: TRUMPET SOUNDING MODE!! We are not all alike. Some of us really and truly loves people! For no reason except, that you are a living human being just like me! You don't owe me anything, but I, I owe you the truth! That we acknowledge the call of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to get the message of Salvation out to the lost and dying, the tired, the weak, the hurting, the poor, the sinner's and WHOMSOEVER will listen......and some of us are dedicated to OBEYING that call, come what may!

Picture this: A child is standing in the street, a car is quickly approaching at "breakneck" speed! This child, whether they are mines, yours, or a total stranger's is the unaware target. What are you going to do? Are you going to do....."Bobby if you look down the street, you will see a vehicle approaching at a real fast pace. Sweetheart, would you proceed to quickly cross the street hon?"

Or would you.....Dash out there and grab "Bobby" by whatever means necessary and get him safely to the other side?

Well, this is where we at today.....TRUMPET WARNING MODE!! Time as we know it is "winding" up and some of us are dedicated to "SOUNDING THE ALARM"!!

and it is one of the "fixed" parts in our lives. are you saying there are no variables and no variations?

i truly think we can have better and more trusting conversations here.

look, the bible was written a long time ago, and has not been changed since. but our lives take place now and are subject to changes hardly comparable with those days...

so how do you integrate a timespace compressed in a book into your real life that is demanding so much more understanding.

btw. as usual, you don't even show making the slightest effort to find out what i am talking about.

see, i have no problem with that, and neither with you saying so.
yet when it comes to fundamentalist discrimination and (political) influence with global consequences, then i feel an urgency to reconcile these differences. that's all i could wish for you to understand.

i do not see myself having any right to push you... or, in other words, twist the topic beyond the op's intent.

but i sincerely do thank you for your understanding as well as any attempt to reach a better one.
