C.H. Spurgeon

Sinners, let me address you with words of life; Jesus wants nothing from you, nothing whatsoever, nothing done, nothing felt; he gives both work and feeling. Ragged, penniless, just as you are, lost, forsaken, desolate, with no good feelings, and no good hopes, still Jesus comes to you, and in these words of pity he addresses you, "Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out."

So Long Hurricane Gustav...

...I just got power back at my house a few minutes ago (9/2, 10pm).

Central is pretty dark with most of the people without power, unless you have a generator. Also, we must have lost some cell towers because it is hit and miss trying to call someone with my cell phone; although I can text and my internet on my iPhone worked when I did get a signal. Some of the land lines are having trouble calling out and reaching them too. I heard BR got it worse, but I haven't been back to work yet. The power is still out so it may be Thursday before I go back. Also, the schools are closed till next Monday.

At first glance, in my neighborhood it didn't look too bad, but after driving around it is a lot worse that we saw with Katrina here, not sure about NO and such. Some of us from church went to help an elderly couple move their furniture to higherground, apparently the Comite is rising and it will flood their neighborhood; and in the past they have gotten up to 32 inches of water inside of their home.

A friend of mine in Alexandria said they were getting it pretty bad and they were helping tranlsate Spanish at the hospital at Tall Timbers, but I haven't been able to text or call them last night or today.

Heard there are a couple of more storms out there, so I guess we better stay prepared.



Have I changed my mine about the 'prophecy' of the last post? No.

Its good to hear that for the most part everything is okay. God has a way of keeping us on our knees, I suppose.
Take care Brother.

Hi Tim

I am still waiting for you to thank god for the hurricane. When are you going to demonstrate your faith?


I am waiting.

Beast,

How would me thanking God for the hurricane demostrate my faith?

My faith in what? That God is, for He sent it forth or allowed it? That God is powerful, and displayed but a mere fraction of his greatness? That God is mericful, for He allowed the destruction to be less than it could have been? That God is gracious, for He uses such to cause sinners to repent and His children to draw close to Him?

I am thankful to serve the God of Heaven, whereby He has 'his way in the whirlwind and in the storm' for we have yet a promise 'that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose' for our 'Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.'

Does it cause you to believe? Or, do you still yet reject Him because you cannot explain Him or His ways, nor will you submit yourself unto Him by putting faith in the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?

God is merciful? LOL!!!!

Ask the 300,000 souls who perished in the tsunami, the 1800 people who died in Hurricane Katrina, millions of children who die from drought and starvation.

Man oh man......ya serious deluded!

You should thank God for the Hurricane. Thank God for Katrina, Gustav and all the murderous natural disasters inflicted by your god.

Don't just count the blessings! Count the disasters too!

Again, more useless talk. What is the use of believing in something that cannot be proven and cannot be understood?

Oh Beast,

‘What is the use of believing in something that cannot be proven and cannot be understood.’

Do you not believe in Big Bang Evolution, neither proven nor understood? Indeed.

Such is why you kick so hard against the truth of Jesus Christ. You refuse to see nature prove His existence, and fail to understand His gospel message calling sinners to repentance.

Erm....Tim......there is no such thing as a "Big Bang Evolution". Haven't read or heard of it. Did God gave you a revelation of such a interesting phenomenon???


"Such is why you kick so hard against the truth of Jesus Christ. You refuse to see nature prove His existence, and fail to understand His gospel message calling sinners to repentance."

First things first, Jebus, if he did exist, is dead. There is no point "kicking" Jebus, metaphorically or literally, although Catholic Christians love to eat his body and drink his blood every other Sunday.

As for Nature and Jebus, I see no collation between the two. If indeed Nature does prove the existence of Jebus, then we do see trees of all shapes and sizes growing all in gigantic crosses. But it isn't happening.

John Bunyan

To be saved is to be preserved in the faith to the end. 'He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.' (Mt. 24:13) Not that perseverance is an accident in Christianity, or a thing performed by human industry; they that are saved 'are kept by the power of God, through faith unto salvation.' (1 Pet. 1: 3-6) But perseverance is absolutely necessary to the complete saving of the soul…. He that goeth to sea with a purpose to arrive at Spain, cannot arrive there if he be drowned by the way; wherefore perseverance is absolutely necessary to the saving of the soul.
