I have been away from home for nearly a week. We had a medical emergency in the family, and now it appears as though my Dad, who is approaching 93 years of age, will need a companion in his home 24/7 for the duration of his days upon the earth. We, as his children, have committed to fulfilling that need as we, and he, all prefer his last days will be lived in the comfort of the familiarity of his natural surroundings. So, that is the reason for my absence as of late.
While at his home, I logged onto TFMR from his computer Sunday and saw several posts @ ToF. And then to read them all, and ponder them, and silently celebrate the Resurrection of Christ with NWV, SWM, Foggyroad, and JerJr via their posts and my heart's joyous, though silent, agreement with them; what a comfort it was to me! And although I never posted, I was thinking about SWM alot; remembering the days of her weakness and now seeing her in strength renewed, posting again on the thread, encouraging us in our faith by her testimony and by her example. Yes!...Joy, indeed!
So, Hayman, my gratitude for the clarity of the excellent expression of all our hearts, made on our behalf in a timely fashion, regarding SWM..and for the edification of the saints.
I desire a personal word to each one of you but, for now, the spirit is willing, the flesh weak, the mind muddled. Regardless: I bid you to help me to praise.....NWD
To those at the table.
Hayman, foggyroad, J. Jr. IRB, JD, Now you are encouraging me!
Just a few wonderful words that stood out in the previous posts;
We serve a risen savior"
"I know my redeemer lives" - "you ask me how I know He lives, He lives within my heart" He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today, He walks with me and talks with me along lifes narrow way"
The above is my strength. Thank you Jesus.
Thinking of you Matthew 24 Now, thinking of you. Was she about this age, seeing one brother shot dead, and her other brother shot in the stomach...all because someone got pushed down in a WalMart?
FYI - I may be starting a Blog soon. You are part of my story. If you like to know when it is published let me know.
The other night at Bible Study, I heard someone say how hard it was to share his faith. I was surprised to hear him say that because he is a Bible scholar. I used to think because he knows so much it should be easy to talk to others about Jesus. He admitted he would rather study Bible history and finds it extremely hard to talk to others about Jesus.
My recent visit to the hospital and close to death experience has convinced me that this life that I live now is not really mine.......
And I have found myself looking for more ways to tell people about Him. The blog will be one way.
I want to wish you well, SWM, may the Gracious Holy Spirit speak mightily through you on your new blog.
You write well and love the Lord, it will be a wonderful blog, and you will be a 'great fisher of men', SWM.
I enjoyed your post, about Linda and Spencer, the food sounded delicious.
A blessed Day.
Please let us know when your ready to have friends come over and read, I look forward to the blessing I know I will find there.
Love brother Foggy
In my prayers, be well, all Glory unto Him,
Hayman, beautiful words.
Praise the Lord.
An introduction from my daughter:
'I'm so happy to share this with you! Because of your prayers and support my mom is recovering from stage 4 colon cancer! I thought she was going to die last fall, the doctors were preparing us for hospice and said they had no treatment to offer my mom. Four months later and the docs are scratching their heads. My Mom just posted her 1st blog, she wants to share her story with you and tell you how she is got rid of advanced cancer, please share this with anyone you may know who need to read this smile emoticon'
I've just read your new blog. I'm thrilled you're healed. I tried to reply to your blog but can't remember my password(s) for some accounts. Is there a way I can subscribe to your blog, Carol? I'm thrilled that you've seen the Ty Bollinger information. He offered them for free for a bit and actually repeated them all for free. There is a free Q & A he and Charlene did that is also terrific.
What a blessed story this will be when you have it all written up.
I really enjoyed the first installment, scary, scary when our loved ones get ill.
Thank you for sharing, Prayers and well wishes continue, Praise the Lord.
Loving thoughts, you toward,
Glory unto our Most High.
700 pm EST,
Should be a blessing to all listeners.
I watched the Last Live interview between these two saints and was very blessed.
Fifty people gave their lives to Jesus, last time the Holy Spirit worked His Godly Power during the Show.
Praise Jesus, blessed Saviour.
Glory be to our Loving Heavenly Father,
Tune in and be blessed Seekers of Truth.

IMO Ty Bollinger's talks are very helpful and full of good information. I have heard him in person and just one his of series. SWM -carol
Long time no talk - just want to say I understand the struggle but I have faith. Things may be different than originally perceived. Keep the vibes good and the hatred down - we can make it through this.
I was diagnosed in 2012 with Colon cancer and the last three years fighting it has been very interesting. Finally I have the second post. Find out how I went from death's door to, "remission" in just five months without continuing chemo and radiation.
Below is the link to the blog post.
Do we have this understanding in our bugout bag?:
So good to hear from you and see you posting again, we need you, the thread needs you.
Love Cahn, have read all his books, good stuff, solid stuff, yet Cahn does not know who America is in scripture for some reason, no worries, above Jj's pay grade, yet he see the important issues aright. America has been glad, America has rejoiced, America has grown fat, America has destroyed her heritage, everything our founding fathers fought and bled for, for us to just squander.
America is going to get it in the neck real soon. Truth be told, as a nation, imo we deserve it. It will happen. It is written.
"Because ye were glad, because ye rejoiced, O ye destroyers of mine heritage, because ye are grown fat as the heifer at grass, and bellow as bulls;" Jerm 50:11
JJ: I also have been following the books and articles by Cahn. He has been elevated to "America's Prophet" and that gives me many concerns. I really loved his latest speech, given in Washington D.C. and how timely. The message was true and to the point. In a way, he is much like Paul. Starting out in Judaism and receiving Christ as his Lord. Many others after the first Pentecost were also Jewish converts. That is when the trouble started and was confronted in Acts 15. BEWARE OF THE JUDAIZER!.
I have lost a Christian friend who has diverted into "finding their Jewish roots". WE DO NOT HAVE ANY JEWISH ROOTS! I copied an article on the subject:
Who were the Judaizers?
Subscribe to our Question of the Week:
Question: "Who were the Judaizers?"
Answer: There have always been those who balk at the idea of God’s salvation being offered freely to those who believe. They reason that such a grand gift as forgiveness from such a holy God must require some kind of payment from us. We thank God for His grace, but we understand that He expects us to somehow earn that grace—in other words, there must be something that we can do to pay off the debt we owe to God.
In the early church, those who taught a combination of God’s grace and human effort were called “Judiazers.” The word Judaizer comes from a Greek verb meaning “to live according to Jewish customs.” The word appears in Galatians 2:14 where Paul describes how he confronted Peter for forcing Gentile Christians to “Judaize.”
A Judiazer taught that, in order for a Christian to truly be right with God, he must conform to the Mosaic Law. Circumcision, especially, was promoted as necessary for salvation. Gentiles had to become Jewish proselytes first, and then they could come to Christ. The doctrine of the Judiazers was a mixture of grace (through Christ) and works (through the keeping of the Law). This false doctrine was dealt with in Acts 15 and strongly condemned in the book of Galatians.
At the Jerusalem Council in Acts 15, a group of Judaizers opposed Paul and Barnabas. Some men who belonged to the party of the Pharisees insisted that Gentiles could not be saved unless they were first circumcised and obeyed the Law of Moses. Paul made the case that, in Christ, there was no longer any distinction between Jew and Gentile, for God had purified the hearts of the Gentiles by faith (Acts 15:8–9). He said it plainly in Galatians 2:16: “A man is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by observing the law, because by observing the law no one will be justified.”
To add anything to the work that Christ did for salvation is to negate God’s grace. We are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, not by returning to the Law. “I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing” (Galatians 2:21).
There are many groups today with beliefs/practices very similar to the Judaizers of the New Testament. The two most prominent would be the Hebrew Roots Movement and the Roman Catholic Church. The teachings of the Hebrew Roots Movement are virtually identical to those of the Judaizers whom Paul rebuked in Galatians. A primary focus of the Hebrew Roots Movement is to put followers of Christ back under the bondage of the Old Testament Law.
The Roman Catholic Church teaches a doctrine similar to that of the Judiazers of the New Testament in this way: its doctrine is a mixture of law and grace. At the Council of Trent in the 16th century, the Catholic Church explicitly denied the idea of salvation by faith alone. Catholics have always held that certain sacraments are necessary for salvation. The issues for the 1st-century Judiazers were circumcision and Sabbath-keeping. The issues for modern-day Catholics are baptism, confession, etc. The works considered necessary may have changed, but both Judiazers and Catholics attempt to merit God’s grace through the performance of ritualistic acts.
First Timothy 4:3 says that, in later times, false teachers will “forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth.” This sounds suspiciously close to some of the teachings of Roman Catholicism, which requires priests to be celibate (“forbidding to marry”) and proclaims some food to be off-limits during Lent (“abstaining from certain foods”).The Judiazers upheld the Mosaic Law as necessary for salvation; Catholics uphold man-made tradition as necessary; both view Christ’s death as being insufficient without the active and continued cooperation of the one being saved.
The Bible is clear that the attempt to add human works to God’s grace overlooks the very meaning of grace, which is “undeserved blessing.” As Paul says, “If by grace, then it cannot be based on works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace” (Romans 11:6). Praise the Lord, “Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery” (Galatians 5:1).

One will need to be careful in these last days and not be led down an old path , passing the Cross, and looking for their roots within the structure of the old temple. DANGER!
So. Jer. Jr., I must say I do enjoy Cahn's boldness, his message, his view of coming events, etc. but I will look to be sure he addresses the destructive teachings through the Judiazers. sitting on the pews and on the platforms of the steeple houses of this fallen era. Jim

August 17, 2008 - David Wilkerson - When God Comes Down
Please visit these links for wonderful sermons and videos from these loving men.
God Bless You.
Sing a new song unto the Lord all ye His saints. Fall down before the Lamb along with the four and twenty elders and the four beasts gathered at Gods throne. For the Lamb alone is worthy to take possession of the earth and all it contains for He purchased it with His blood; His precious blood. It is He who created the universe and everything in it. He formed the earth and gave dominion of it to the anointed cherub that covereth. The cherub whom God said was perfect; full of wisdom and beauty in the day he was created. God created Eden the garden God in which there was every precious stone, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold. The anointed cherub was set up on the Holy mountain of God. He walked up and down amidst the stones of fire but his heart was lifted up with pride and great was his fall when he along with a third of the angles rebelled against The Most High God his creator. Judgement fell on him and his dominion. The earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. Then God did a new thing. He restored the earth and planted a garden a new Eden. He created man and placed him there and gave him dominion over every living thing he had created. Life for Adam was very good. He had every thing he needed. An intimate relationship with his creator, meaningful responsibilities, a companion, and a paradise to share with her.
Although judged and dethroned the once lofty cherub now a lowly serpent was lurking. Adam now had dominion of what was once his. The resentful serpent cunningly devised a plan to cause Adam's fall and take back his dominion. Man fell because he doubted God's word. He fell from his state of pristine innocence and great was his loss. Now once again the earth was cursed and the penalty of death fell on all who came after him.
You O God we're not caught unawares. The serpent deceived man but the war for him was lost before the foundation of the world. He strikes at our feet but the 2nd Adam has crushed his head at the cross and though he continues to war against us he is eternally defeated.
He that believes in him is not condemned. He that believes not is condemned already. I believe oh God. Therefore I pray thee transfer my name from under the headship of the 1st Adam of whom all are worthy of death and write it in the Lambs book of life the 2nd Adam who did no sin but is victorious over sin and death and has given us forgiveness and eternal life through His blood, His shed blood and now hath dominion over all creation. Thank You Lord Jesus. Amen
Thank you for your post. I have a question.
What would you say to the person that says,
"This is confusing, if we are saved by faith and not works how do you distinguish between works as a result of faith and works in order to be saved? Is it a matter of attitude?
Would you clarify some more for me?
PS I am glad you are back.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
CC: When one receives Christ within, he has passed out of darkness and has the True Light within. The Lord did it all, yes completely. The old blood covenant was over forever and the New Blood Covenant has taken full measure within us. It is at the Cross, yes the Cross, that everything changed.
The old covenant house of Israel was under a truck load laws that they could not obey. (One should read the book of Hebrews often). I was never under the O.T. law, never been Jewish, never been to the temple, and never been under the laws of Moses except when placed under them by a lost steeple house system. (Ya know, some still teach that the ten commandments are the only items to be followed to be saved). Yes some have works and some have faith but we must show our faith by our works while we are never saved by works but by Faith.
What are the "works" of most of Christianity today? Watching steeple house T.V. programs, tithing to mega systems for their new buildings and new planes for their high priests? Is it being an usher, Sunday school teacher, bus driver, or painting the Punk Rock stage for the youth group? Is it the thousands of steeple house missionaries, traveling the globe, teaching differing concepts on the same scriptures and bringing great confusion to all? Could it be the huge market in books at the local steeple house book stores, selling anything new that will tickle the ears of the sheep? Ah, could works be the many lost missionaries who knock on my door who have a different bible, a different message than that which was first delivered to us? Just what are these "works" that really show our Faith in Him? (That would take time to post).
Carol, there are times that one just must be blunt in order to explain where we are really at. I have been concerned for decades over the old covenant priests invading the new covenant sheep. I remember going to concerts over 30 years ago by Jews for Jesus. Many of the songs they sing and even the many songs in the systems, including FGBMFI during its peak, were songs of the old covenant. The sheep need to listen as to what they are singing. (That would be another long posting).
This movement to join with the "Jewish Roots" movement is more than dangerous. IT IS A DENIAL OF THE COMPLETED WORK OF THE CROSS! We do not have any Jewish roots to discover and never will. THIS IS DANGEROUS GROUND AND ONE WILL FIND THEMSELVES UNDER THE LAW AND THE EFFECTS OF BEING UNDER THOSE LAWS! If your leaders are dressing in rabbi robes, setting their steeple houses up as temples, run for the doors and repent. Come back to Christ alone and nothing else for He is the Overcomer within you.
The entire Church world is looking for true prophets. We see the prophets from Kansas City, the TBN prophets, the SQ site prophets, the Mormon prophet, and even the prophets of Islam. All are seeking someone, anyone to rise up to that special level of anointing, a true gifted one, someone who will really tell the message of the Lord for these last days of tribulation. CAUTION!!!!!!!!!! Many false prophets are all around us and can be spotted quickly. When John came preaching, it was a message to the Church of his day, REPENT FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND, and when Jesus, our Lord came, He also began preaching REPENTANCE and not discovering their Jewish roots.
The end days are marked by deception and even the elect may be deceived. How can that be? Moving back into the old Jewish Roots and empty temple, will cause great heartache in that day. COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM OH MY PEOPLE !
This old man has a warning for the Church and should be seen and understood from the above! Jim
