I started a new tradition with my whole family today:
November 24 2011, 6:57 PM
this was the first year none of my immediate family ate turkey.......I haven't eaten meat for over six years but I still made it for my husband and children: This year my daughter has been vegan for several months so my husband ate what we ate which was a bean/rice/stuffing burger with trimmings:
the best part is we all stopped basing our "thanksgiving" based on the world but on what we CREATE within our heart........not what others did to celebrate this day.....I can't just be grateful about that tradition any longer for a long time.
Yet we all should set apart a time for giving thanks for what we are thankful for, whatever it is.........and if there is nothing...........make a tradition to LOOK for something........
I had a Buffalo Burger today. I just ain't into gobbleing dead bird.,
Little damp this week, hey? Not much sun on the Sunshine Coast. I really wanted to get over to your side this fall and I know we are welcome. It's just got to be such a horrible hassle to return to the U.S. Everyone is treated like a terroist or illegal here. Sad there is so much fear.
Yeah I don't go to the USA any more. Homeland security has me flagged in their database for a pot bust in Canada back in 1970. Some 30 years ago I got a pardon here in Canada and since then I have had high security clearance for my business allowing me to go into very sensitive areas like airport control towers etc - but I am still not allowed into the USA.
I can get a waiver letter which allows me into the USA and is good for a year. I have done that in the past, however it is a major hassel - so many forms to fill out, and also getting my fingerprints from the RCMP here and the FBI in Blaine WN. It is just too intensive, and also costly - I have to pay out cash too.
So now whan I travel every winter, I have to make sure my plane does not touch down in the USA. This is not a problem if I am going east or west, but if I want to go south like to to Central or South America, I usually have to go first to Toronto, and then south from there.
Sorry about the whine - life is good and I am thankful for all the good stuff happening in my life. Again I wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving.
"Error does not become Truth because it is widely accepted; Truth does not become error, even when it stands alone"
not....it is just a matter of time....eventually they will log in everyone's record and those with a criminal record will not be allowed in without having to fill in what they call a 'waiver'...and again, just anoth $500-$1,000 cash grab for the government. a friend of mine cannot go to the U.S. because of an incident, a misdemenor he were involved in sometime in the 70's- or 80's....
All this so called terrorist crap is just a way for government to be Big Brother and truly, we are just a baby step away from some sort of military rule'...come on....what sort of terrorist threat is someone who got caught with a joint etc?
it is important why the antichrist rises during globalism:
November 26 2011, 1:13 PM
globalism is a reality that we can't DENY anymore........it was always true that the "EARTH IS THE LORDS and the FULLNESS thereof":
not just certain countries, but the WHOLE EARTH............and the best way for God to get the "kingdoms of this world to the Kingdom of God and his Christ" is to make bring the vail of ego down.........meaning ego thinks we are INDIVIDUALS, but in reality we are all "CONNECTED" spiritually...........we all live and breathe and move in GOD........he is the SOURCE OF ALL LIVING THINGS
so, when the ego can no longer PREVENT us from coming to the realization of BEING GLOBAL..........then antichrist RISES.......but why?
the proximity between us with the ego.........reveals the great hatred egos have for one another....
and this brings on the tribulation.........the ego.......which is ruled by antichrist
the ego or self is the seed of the serpent
and Jesus Christ is the seed of the woman (which is our soul) the image of God
the antichrist has to be revealed before he is overcome..........because he is the 'spirit against Gods spirit';
the spirit of man which reflects the heart of a beast (animal) and not the heart of God (love):

Your words are great for personal psychology Yvonne.
But as far as passing the prophetic tests soon coming upon the world, your words will cause the condemnation of many. Do you realize that?
The Bible is a road map, not of your sole, but of world history and future.
When Jesus returns, he will keep teaching us.
Your theology Yvonne has to do with the next world, not this one.
And the problem is your talking to several people here who will not pass the basic test of FAITH in Jesus Christ the Son of GOD. And you are teaching them to ignore the coming test. You know I love you Yvonne, but do you love them enough to slap them on the head, and say, "What are you thinking!"
Jesus is the answer. This world is at its end.
Love to you Sis.
just like the Jews didn't accept that some experienced Messiah
November 26 2011, 8:14 PM
so today.......the same problem........but now it includes many many Christians who also don't believe others have EXEPRIENCED Messiah:
those who have experienced Messiah, are not of this world anymore.......they live in another "dimension of consciousness" even though they remain here physically........how else could PAUL and the apostles bring the GOSPEL if they left as soon as they met Messiah??
what was true then, is true now.......Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, TODAY, and forever:
just because the Jews didn't believe anyone could experience Messiah, didn't mean they were right
and just because Christians don't believe it......doesn't mean they are any more right than the Jews
JESUS is already GATHERING HIS PEOPLE, raising them to LIFE.........and judging them, and bringing them to where he is.......
Re: so when all these things come to pass.......the Lord says LOOK AT THEM TIM
November 27 2011, 12:42 PM
Mar 10:16 And he took them up in his arms, put [his] hands upon them, and blessed them.
do you know the meaning of "he took them up in his arms"?
He kindly lovingly picked each of them up off the ground in His arms and blessed them. That's the spirit Yvonne.
Have you never done that Yvonne?
Something comes to mind, I was in Target one day in Brainerd Minnesota, and I saw this cute little girl with her mother, about 3 or 4 years old. And the little one looked at me, and I smiled and said "hi", with my mind, and not with my mouth. And I was looking at something in the next isle. And I heard the little girl say to her mother, "Tim", and her mother said "Tim who, who's Tim?".. And the little girl answer her mother, and just says again "Tim", and the mother says to the daughter "I don't know what your talking about". I thought WOW that was weird, the little girl read my mind and knew my name! Amazing spiritual contact. I didn't say anything, as not to alarm the mother, that some strange man communicated with her daughter. LOL
Is that the kind of spiritual stuff your talking about Yvonne?
I can't open eyes or ears.......only the Lord can do that
I just shared my witness because I am bringing this to Israel who can not hear me anymore than they did Ezekiel but......when the Lord opens their eyes and ears, they will KNOW they had a prophet among them............
you will know when you have your visitation that I was not just making this stuff up
and that releases me from being part of the LYING SHEPHERDS who don't tell the sheep the truth:
I have told you that the LORD IS COMING TO INDIVIDUALS........he brings both mercy and judgment, grace and truth with him.........
he will separate YOUR sheep from your goats
your wheat from your tares
and when he is finished, we shall all be of ONE MIND with the apostles, and all the saints
till then, keep on keeping on......you can't help what you can't help
nope not hypocritical...YOU are the one judging others here and throwing scripture like daggers....YET...speak like a heathen and vile person....
but when you get confronted....you like to escape accountability with the 'i know you are but what am I' childish approach.....
sadly....at judgement....when you are asked THEN to give account for every idle and vile word.....saying 'But Lord, look at that gerry guy!'.....won't work then either.
but, you sure do like to do it....so???.....carry on. HOWEVER, remember....you are accountable.....and just saying 'oops i suppose i was a little harsh' ,,.when you go off using horrible vile language......just is not acceptable.
what exactly does 'following' Christ mean to you?...also consider what jesus said here: 'By ye fruits are ye known'?
In todays world
Spread the Gospel and take your lumps and bruises for doing so.
Jesus hopes the knowledge you give others will help them to attain eternal live.
Gerard we must speak modern English. Sorry if FUCK is a new word to you.
I had no intentions of perverting anyone's understanding of words here.
Ya, perhaps you are a momma's boy born in the 1930's
Silence or sin....
care to show in scripture now, what supports 'following christ' and what you claim ....are the same?
Yes Gerard, we are not the same, many different are Saints.
11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
1 Corinthians 12:28
28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?
30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?
31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
What is your job/gift Gerard?
My job is to recruit nonbelievers.
recruit?...lemmy know how that works out.
here is a hint..telling people to fuck off, or fuck you...isn't exactly found in scripture.
again....leemy know how that works.
If sugar doesn't bring the cattle into the barn, then use the sword.
They didn't have the terms "fuck off" or "fuck you" in those days Gerard.
It was "go to hell you bastard" and "the devil is your father you fool"
Maybe you should wipe the dust off your sword Gerard, but first you must take it out of the closet.
