Do you see LOVE, Betsey?

Or is your face contorted? Do you see gentleness, patience, peacefulness, love, longsuffering kindness, staring back at you in the mirror...?

Or do you see a face full of anger, rage and vengenance?

Is God trying to tell you something, Betsey?

You are missing the whole point.
You are missing the WHOLE, ENTIRE point of Jesus Christ.

Peace.

Okay, performed the exercise and these were the results:

Contorted...no....SMILING!

Gentleness, peacefulness, patience, love, longsuffering, kindness, meekness, joy....All PRESENT!

Anger, Rage, Vengeance.....NOWHERE IN SIGHT!

Is God trying to tell me something? Absolutely! He's speaking to me even as I am sitting here: "Betsey my child, I'm soon coming, it is the last hour, tell them to take heed!"

Missing the point, on the contrary.........RUNNING THE RACE and NOT GIVING IN TO SEDUCING SPIRITS IN THIS FINAL HOUR!!

Love, ALWAYS..................Betsey.

Thank you Father for your promises that never fail. Thank you for your love that never fails. God bless.

Romans 8:18-22
18. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.19. For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.20. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in *hope 21. that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.22. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

*hope=elpis=expectation

We are talking about the ones who have REJECTED The truth! And it's now judgment time! Do They collect their "FREE PASS"? Do you believe that?
Hi Betsey, if I may interject and requote part of Shana's post...

The part in red does not sound like a free pass to me. It sounds like judgment.

Zephaniah 3
8 "Therefore wait for Me," declares the LORD,
"For the day when I rise up as a witness.
Indeed, My decision is to gather nations,
To assemble kingdoms,
To pour out on them My indignation,
All My burning anger;
For all the earth will be devoured
By the fire of My zeal.

9. "For then I will give to the peoples purified lips,
That all of them may call on the name of the LORD,
To serve Him shoulder to shoulder

Then, Betsey...
I just have to come out and say it. What comes out of your mouth is not longsuffering kindness, gentleness, peace, nor love.


I love you, you are my sister.

If you ever wish to talk privately, one-on-one... pm me.

I don't like to go back and forth all day long, because y'know what? All it does after awhile is start to build a wall between people.

I discuss, because I know there are those out there in cyberspace, possibly lurking, who are yearning for God, yearning for truth.
But, in the process of discussing, a wall can start to be built between two people. Sometimes it's the price we pay for putting it all out there and laying it out for others to come along and dissect, and examine, and decide, for theirselves what is truth. But I DO hate to see the wall being built. If ever, you want to discuss with me privately, please do PM me. I won't push anything on you, but I have open arms, Betsey.

Peace to you, sister.

Sparrow.

If I see "free pass" again, I'll puke on my keyboard. Nobody, I repeat nobody has stated that ANY OF US are getting a pass without being conformed to His image. The trials of this life come, and we all blame the devil. Judgment will begin first at the door of those who say they see, and yet are blind (the house of God). He will not always strive with man, because he is flesh. (Gen 6:3)

The church doesn't even know their Savior, much less His plans.

Slow day at the office, so I can actually think while I post today.

I will tell you what makes me puke L.E., but you must keep it a secret, eh.

I am in this world not by my will, or choice; and as a result of one mans single act of disobedience I am a part of the mass of mankind "made sinners". It simply is not fair!

But wait....but wait....but wait....

The same mass of mankind (of which Birdbrain is a part) made sinners, is the mass of mankind "made righteous" in another Man.

Did I mention there is no free ride?
