Subject:Some real scary "$%!#"
Posted by:abijahyosef.
Time:9:39 pm.
I like Bush being our president and all but im not for sure what he's thinking now days. I just hope the man knows what he's doing.
I saw this headline and almost went into shock.

TEHRAN, Iran — Iraqi President Jalal Talabani arrived in Tehran on Monday amid increasing calls for Washington to enlist Iran's help in calming the escalating violence in neighboring Iraq.

on and on they talked about how the president has asked Iran to meet with the Iraqi President. Who knows what kind of devilish plans they came up with about how to attack us. We all know that Iran's president don't like us and neither does Iraq.
What is goin on?
I hope our president knows what he's doing.

whats the thrill in scary movies and games?
why is it that we like to watch movies like Saw, The Silence of the Lamb, The exorcist? Play games like Mortal Kombat,i cant really think of any more because i dont play games but kids play Zelda, Dragon BallZ. Why?

We wish to sit back and watch demons run out of control on stage and possessed persons carry out every will of evil. Games with more blood and gore then real life, become our attentino for most of the day.
Don't you find something wrong with this Christian people?

Using a script I used in another posting somewhere else I wonder why it is that we wish to cause ourselves to fear when fear is not of God, unless our goal is to be apart form God. Why do we seek to entertain ourselves with matter that is against The Word of God in so many ways? Is it that we fear we are missing out on something the world is doing? If that be the case became one of them and enjoy the fullest of all the benefits, death and all.

The Bible says unto us to think on these things:
Philippians 4:8 (King James Version)
King James Version (KJV)
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Can someone tell me why we do this? What is the thrill in this kind of entertainment?

Subject:Let me KNOW your opinion
Posted by:abijahyosef.
Time:2:14 am.
I found this article in Christianity Today the title read:

"Tension Behind the Pulpit-ithas always been so" Martyn Percy

It started out by telling of a joke of two priest who got stranded on an island by the time they were saved they had started two seperate church.
They had some choice of why this was, most of which me no understand why they took out the time to write, but over all it was a boring article.
In real life its an awesome subject tht might need to be addressed so please leave your opinion of why you think it is the church is so seperated. Why all the denominations, differnat beliefs, differant Bibles(that say differant things?
You tell me your opinion and i'll tell you mine.

I'm not being just negative or nuthin like that but it just twist my knobs way past wrong when i hear bout how all these missionaries from US get this great vision or see this great need to evangelize to persons in other countries. Yet the great US is dying on her feet. Why cant they see that? What is it? Why do we do that?
*Do we believe that the US just is too hard to evangelize?
*Do we believe that we are already Christian country and we need to spread our "found" wisdom?
*Are we just the same as we were in junior high when we were too afraid to just stand and yell "I'm a Christian"? we believe that if we step out that the country will laugh at us or that even our government will put us down?
*Do we fear that our great dr

Subject:We just can't get enough of War
Posted by:abijahyosef.
Time:3:18 am.
Mood: i cant believe this.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Americans would have to sign up for a new military draft after turning 18 if the incoming chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee has his way.

New York Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel said Sunday he sees his idea as a way to deter politicians from launching wars. He believes a draft would bolster U.S. troop levels that are currently insufficient to cover potential future action in Iran, North Korea and Iraq.

"There's no question in my mind that this president and this administration would never have invaded Iraq, especially on the flimsy evidence that was presented to the Congress, if indeed we had a draft, and members of Congress and the administration thought that their kids from their communities would be placed in harm's way," Rangel said. (Your e-mails on draft)

Rangel, a veteran of the Korean War who has unsuccessfully sponsored legislation on conscription in the past, said he will propose a measure early next year.

In 2003, he proposed a draft covering people age 18 to 26. This year, he offered a plan to mandate military service for men and women between age 18 and 42. It went nowhere in the Republican-led Congress.

Democrats will control the House and Senate come January because of their victories in the November 7 mid-term election.

At a time when some lawmakers are urging the military to send more troops to Iraq, "I don't see how anyone can support the war and not support the draft," said Rangel.

He also proposed a draft in January 2003, before the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican who is a colonel in the U.S. Air Force Standby Reserve, said he agreed that the U.S. does not have enough people in the military.

"I think we can do this with an all-voluntary service, all-voluntary Army, Air Force, Marine Corps and Navy. And if we can't, then we'll look for some other option," said Graham, who is assigned as a reserve judge to the Air Force Court of Criminal Appeals.

Rangel and Graham appeared on "Face the Nation" on CBS.

HEADLINES READ
Iran: We can attack up to 2,000 km

Chief Commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards visits Iranian missile unit, promises soldiers, 'we are ready to deal with any possible attack'
Only two weeks ago, the Revolutionary Guards held a large-scale exercise called "The Great Prophet 2" during which Shihab-3 land-to-land missiles were launched. Shihab 3 missiles have a range of 2,000 km and can reach Israel.


I found this in the worthy news web site @ www.worthynews.com and i seriously dont know what to think about it. maybe its just a bluff or diversion, maybe they're forreal. With the previous threats in the news about how they were planning genecide on all Israelites and then Americans i do think that both the opposing governments should start working out a game plan on how to fight back incase we are attacked. I have faith that the God we serve will not allow them to wipe out the whole nation of Israel because they are still his people even if they have been altered from the persons in the Bible. I understand that since American has stood by Israel it has secured itself as blessed before the Lord but im not so sure that the Lord will stand for them much longer if they continue on the path they wish to play with. I only hope they stay with Israel and have themselves alittle favor with the Lord. O' Mi Lord we are so in trouble. Please pray Saints.

Subject:I would like to declare miself taday
Posted by:abijahyosef.
Time:9:16 am.
You can read the Bible 24/7 but just like Malcolm X who read the Bible front to back several times and still got nothing from it, if the word is not preached unto you then it will return to you void. As in my previous post the word shall not return back void if capsulated in the right way. It's like a contract that says if you do this then I do this. Betcha didn't know that God was so picky and iffy. Well read your Bible theres more of "if" in there. But wait on that before you go on and read the Bible and "rightfully decern" let me finish what it is i was saying before.
I kinda got ahead of miself but I'm here now.

Vocabulary
manifest= to be made known or viewable
O.K. lets go to Titus 1:3
"But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Savioiur:"
Translated for you to completely understand.
God has according to his will made known his word through preaching
which(his word) is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour(Christ)
Paul sent this letter to Titus but we use it today for referance to address the effective minister in your midst. In other words Im here and im not for hire. hear what i have to say or dont the choice and life is yours. I will be posting sermons to live by from now on coming from the doctorine or Timothy and i would like to request that before you dismiss what i have to say that you try it out first, look it up, find fault in it( ase if there is any), before you dismiss it.

Subject:Isaiah 55:11

Time:7:47 am.
"So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which i please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it" KJV
this script obviously is from Isaiah 55:11 and i know that im not your pastor "whats his name" but taday im gonna preach ta ya. So pull out your KJV and let me start you out slow and simple.
Lets break down this script ok
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void( self explanitory), but it shall accomplish that which I please(it shall accomplish what i intended it to do. Even when persons try to take it out of context it will only work and do all that its suppose to do if it is used and interpreted in the way and from the vessels of which I intended it to), and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it( explanitory but for you who are still alittle in the cloudy let me clear things up for you. Only in its complete context will this i say unto you work. Only unto whom i give it from whom i sent it for the intended perpose i have sent it will this word i give unto you work.). So in a nutshell i say unto you all Look for a more forfilling word from the mouth of God to the people of God. It shall not come back to him void and if you use it in the context it is suppose to be used it will not return back unto you void either.

Subject:The Most Important Thing -- concluded
Posted by:zechariah.
Time:1:12 am.
Okay, so I've waited probably longer than I should have to answer this question. Thank you to everyone who responded, and mega bonus points to ChiAlphaCurt for giving me a wider distribution by x-posting it on his Xanga.

So the question: What is the most important thing you can do in a church service?

And my answer: To demonstrate God's love to others by loving them.

The Jews came to the Pharisees asking Jesus for the A-number one tops most important commandment (Mark 12:28-34, Matt 22:34-40). I think some wanted to trap Him, while others wanted an excuse for why they only had to follow one command and not 600 of the others. Amazing that this is the last of a barrage of questions they ask Him over the 3.5 yrs of ministry, and it's the absolute question to determine His motives in all things. So what happens? He flabbergasts them beyond the point where anyone can muster the courage to ask another theological question.

Here's the thing that got me: the lawyer/scribe asked Jesus for one commandment, and he got two. If you ask most Christians what THE most important commandment, they will readily tell you Mt 22:37, forgetting v. 39 completely. Why? Because that's how we operate: what's the one thing I should focus on?

When I posed this question, many answered something to the effect of "love God." Well that's great, but does it simply stop there? By no means! Jesus didn't stop there with the Commandments, He affixed the two together. They are ultimately inseparable, for to love God means to obey His Commandments (John 14:15), and to love what He loves -- people! These two Commandments are equivalent in stature, and they cover the bases for everything else. Think of it this way: when Jesus questioned Peter's devotion, He put an if-then on Peter's actions: "Do you love me? If so, then feed my lambs."

The whole reason this came up was b/c I went to a church where initially I felt unreceived. I knew the college pastor, so I said hey to him before the service started, but I still ended up sitting alone. When it came to "stop the service so you can greet the people around you" time, I got passed over. Granted, half an hour after church, I was in the car with some people I had just met headed to New Orleans (yeah, mom & dad, I ride in cars with strangers now). Nevertheless, I didn't feel that before the service, and although I really wanted to get into worship, I just couldn't get there. It was like I was tied down, watching how great of a time everyone else must have had. If you'll forgive me for saying so, I felt spiritually handicapped, like the beggar sitting at the temple hoping some kind person will stop by and heal them.

I spent the whole time praying, "God, I don't want to be self-centered here, but I really just feel like I can't get there without somebody else's help. I don't understand why I can walk into some churches and fall right into the Spirit in worship, but elsewhere I feel totally separated." He revealed to me that in some churches I visit, I feel practically ignored, while in others I'm smothered in affection from those who come there to worship God together; in both cases, it makes no difference how long I've been going there. One great example was Freedom Church out in Livingston. Two men greeted me out in the parking lot as they showed me where to park, four people or so served coffee & donuts out front, and then two more opened doors into the church and handed out bulletins. When I sat down in the back row, a guy I didn't know (yet) initiated a conversation with me, and not just a "hi nice to meet you," but actually being interested in what I had to say.

Here's the bottom line: it is every Christian's responsibility to help other people come into the service prepared to worship, and it's so simple. It's difficult, alright, but it's still simple. We have to love each other with the love Christ has shown to us so that by receiving that demonstration of God's love, we can respond to Him in kind. As far as church members are concerned (whether or not you have your name on the roster, if you act like a member, this includes you), we MUST be proactive. Yeah, I hate the "stand up and greet somebody around you," because we'll only greet those we feel comfortable greeting, and the rest get the cold fish handshake. That is the fastest way to get somebody to walk out the back doors and never come back again.

It doesn't matter how awesome of a time you have in worship, if somebody else misses out because you failed to bring them in, you're no better off than a Pharisee.

Subject:Scars of society
Posted by:bloodshed_forme.
Time:12:50 am.
I think that today many people don't realize the scars of society. Everyday you work, sit, walk-by, and talk to, the people that carry the scars of society. In this I mean the people in which society has taken advantage of, drowned in Meds and sells a false love, well-being, and comfort. We need toshow them that God's plan is for every one being all the world's needs. I live with a generation that is being frowned upon, hurt, and put down by society. Why should we simply sit and watch the world tear us down when we can can take the action and show the scars of society that we can help and that we care. also there are thos who show off their scars that society has given them. These are the people who wear the shame and the pain with a pride, yet the hurting on the inside is not seen until they are alone. Yet they do not realize that it isa cry for help to find the truth in the life not known to them. I see the tears of their scars because I myself bare my own scars... but not for pride or the lack thereof... I show mine because they are a witness of where i have been and where GOd has brought me from... They are not just physical but they are emotional, and mental scars that God has healed. People can't say that i haven't had the trouble, of the tears, anger, and pride... I have had it all and i am still paying for that trouble that i brought myself. Don't be afraid of your scars and wounds but don't sit and pick at them or they won't heal GOd will apply the healing balm of Gilead. I have had to go through some tough times but God has pulled me out every time. In my experiance in the ministry God has allowed me to learn from the hardships and scars that i bare to the rest of the world...

I can't really type anything so I copied the e-mail that was sent to the campus.

Dear Bethany Community,

Our dear friend, teacher, and colleague, Roger Bishop, died Tuesday night around 11:00 p.m. He was surrounded by his family and died very peacefully and without pain.

We will gather as a community of prayer in Chapel this morning at 10:30 to give thanks to God for Roger’s life.

The time for the funeral will be determined later today.
Rest eternal grant him, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon him.


Peace,

Noni Strand
Campus Pastor

Please pray for our community as we try to cope with this matter.

SPARC OHIO 2005
(Students Praying for Awakening and Revival on Campus)

Hello everyone!! Well, I’m honored to inform you that our God has immeasurable power.

On November 4th -5th at Liberty Barn Church (7080 Olentangy River Road Delaware, OH 43015), college students from all over Ohio are meeting to pray and fast for God to intervene in Ohio and cause an awakening. Registration begins at 8:00PM on the 4th, Things will get going with some worship and a speaker at 9:00PM. On Saturday, up by 9AM with more worship, prayer, fellowship, etc and out of the church at 9PM that night. Leaving early or coming late? Come and go as necessary.

I would like to remind us all that this is for ALL students in Ohio who believe in and follow Jesus, and would like to pray for His Spirit to sweep across Ohio and on our campuses with revival and awakening! So please let friends at other campuses know about it and let the word spread like wildfire. If you'd like pre-made flyers to hang up on your campuses or in your area, email ohiosparc@yahoo.com



Our responsibility lies only in providing the opportunity- paving the way- for people to come. We are to be like John the Baptist, making way for the King to move. Remember that our time is now severely limited, as we now only have about a month to get word to the whole state. This is the time in which we must rise to the occasion, it is clutch time- crunch time. 'The time for talk and half measures is over,' as Maximus (Gladiator) would put it.

As if I need to underline it, but prayer is our most valuable weapon, so let's use it for all it's worth!

Can you feel it? God is moving- the time is now, our roles are crucial. Let's rock and roll!!!!



Sis in JC,
Leanne Wilson


If you have any questions, please email sparcohio@yahoo.com or go to ohiosparc.blogspot.com!



Joel 1:14-15 “14Announce a time of fasting; call the people together for a solemn meeting. Bring the leaders and all the people into the Temple of the LORD your God, and cry out to him there. 15The day of the LORD is on the way, the day when destruction comes from the Almighty. How terrible that day will be!”

I am asking everyone to please pray for my college professor and Advisor, Roger Bishop. He has started to undergo testing for what they have found to be lesions on the back of his brain which they think started in either his stomach or pelvic region. He has also form lumps on his neck and under his left arm. The lump under his left arm is causing him to lose feeling and movement in his arm. Please pray for him and his Wife Gem. They are great people and he is a huge asset to the Bethany College Community.

God Bless
