Hi Amy... I too believed that the days in which we live tied into the end times until I read the verse Acts 2:16-17. This verse is telling us that when the day of Pentecost came in the Apostles day, that was the beginning of the last days. I have also looked at 2Chronicles 7:14 where it says, "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." I think that as the church humbled herself in history and turned from sin, then God once again healed her land.
Ever since being baptized with the Holy Spirit thirty years ago, I too have been watching for Christ' return. Now, after thirty years of researching a book recently published entitled Love Is the Commitment: Protocol Guidelines for God's Royal Wedding, I have come to the conclusion that God's Word says we are to be watching and ready because no one except God the Father knows the hour in which Jesus will return. Currently, I am writing a new book entitled: America's National Disgrace: the Powerless Church. This book deals with the need for the body of Christ to repent and come together in the unity of faith under the power of the Holy Spirit.

I am blessed to see believers such as yourself seeking Truth from God's Word! You are a blessing in the church.

Amen Amy! We must know His word and be watchful for the false prophets, there are a lot of them out there that are very deceitful some well meaning but have been taught twisted scripture, that can be eternally damaging. Even Paul fell for it!

I believe so much that this is the end times and God said that He would pore His Spirit out on all men. It is time for all churches of all kinds to join together in agreement and let God have His Perfect way. Jesus said that a house against itself will fall but together will stand. No matter what kind of church, God is still God. He is no respecter of persons, so why should we be respecters of churches. As long as we have Jesus as Lord and Saviour, we are ALL ONE in the body of Christ. It is time to join together and get over our differences and serve the ONE TRUE GOD, Jesus, the Father, and the Holy Spirit. Praise God Almighty, I am so glad that God didn't choose just one type of person. WE are ALL included in His great plan. I am non-denominational and I am glad too. It frees me from most hang ups because all I want is God's Holy Truth. That is what I choose to govern my life. Love in Christ, Amy B.

Jesus is my strength for I can do all things through Christ Jesus Who strengthens me.Philippians 4:13
I am not ashamed of Jesus Christ. I serve Him with all of me.
My love for Him surpasses any desires on this earth and it is only because of Him that I live.
I am racing toward the goal. I will not quit or give up.
I love Jesus because He first loved me.

King James Version

And God spake all these words, saying, I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
Thou shalt not kill.
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not steal.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

Hello, everyone, I just joined and am glad to be here! I believe that the different faith denominations are walls put up to keep God's people from uniting, and that PEOPLE are what is important to God, that we unite with other believers in prayer and praise and thanksgiving.

I was raised Roman Catholic by my mother but my father was a member of the Church of Christ for his whole life. I have since had to leave the church because of life's journey and the twists and turns involved, became Episcopalian but now, belong to a "Cowboy Church" which is basically a fundamental Baptist belief. We study the Bible and take it literally. "Cowboy Churches" have become very popular here in Texas but that is not the reason I joined and stayed. I was drawn to this church from driving past it one day. God told me I should at least visit and try it out, and I am so glad I did!

Again, thanks to FAITHGIRL91 for inviting me! emoticon

The only place we can not pick and chose is the Bible And all else you hear look up in the bible mowing the Bible well makes it harder to fool you with haft truths and changed meaning The more I read it The more I learn Each time I pick up more Remember we are thought till the day we leave this temporary dwelling and go home for good

It's true Dorothy. We may have different understandings of some things and ways that we practice our faith but we want to always stay walking in love and peace, just as the Lord would have to do. I believe that as we do that, and we stay connected to Him, that His Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth and that we may be one. Have a blessed day! emoticon Karen

Hi everyone. I am new to this team.

I agree with the Rules of Conduct on this team. We are children of God - no matter what church we belong to. Abba chooses His children from all sorts of churches. We need to support each other because Abba has accepted us into His family.

Jesus has taught me to listen to whatever is being taught, take what spiritual food I need and then leave the rest behind.

I so agree !!! satan comes to divide & conquer . I dont think there were denominations
when Jesus walked the Earth I respect others articles of faith . when we get to heaven there
are no denominations.

i have a baptist , pentecostal , I have studied the seventh day adventist . i do studies on line
i wasnt afraid . avanell I know. I have met remarks !!! i general dont tell others .
i might want to say I AM NOT THE HOLY GHOST JUNIOR TO GO AROUND JUDGING
we become one joined by our faith hope & charity . i love my christians brothers & sisters

HE WILL COVER YOU WITH HIS FEATHERS ,AND UNDER HIS WINGS
YOU WILL FIND REFUGE,HIS FAITHFULNES WILL BE YOUR SHIELD AND RAMPART psalm 91:4

I totally agree. We need to lift each other up. We need to realize that we are all one in the kingdom of God. The best support comes from lifting one another up. We are all trying to achieve the same goal of loosing weight. What can be better than helping one another as sister's and brother's in Christ?

Debbie

Accept life completely on life's terms.

Nothing happens in God's world by mistake.

I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and my attitudes.

I think God's word says it best: Matthew 22:36-40 "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?" Jesus said to him, "'You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.' "This is the first and great commandment. "And the second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' "On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets."

We do not have to make blood sacrifices Be circumcised and much rules of old Put if we want to be forgiven we have to forgive God will judge like we judge others Put the Commandments do not change Not one ward added or subtracted from the bible When Jesus talks about the commandments they are not white washed or made easy We will not be perfect put because we love God we put out our best effort

Thank you Jesus for dieing on the cross," Oh, what a wretched man I am," said Paul and I have to join him in that. I couldn't do it without Jesus. He has saved me from my own flesh.

God's grace reaches each one of us and places us in the position of receiving His righteousness through our faith. Rules of conduct are simply guidelines by which to live in harmony with each other. God desires that we live in peace with both Him and each other.

I, too, was a little hesitant about joining. After reading the rules of conduct I felt much better. I think if we are Christians we should not be bashing other Christians...let the Holy Spirit breathe upon this team so that we can be a truly unified Body of Christ!
God bless!

I second Avanell's welcome, Sharon and I agree with you. I am Pentecostal/Word Faith but my family background is also mixed... Catholic, Lutheran, Pentecostal, Presbyterian, etc. I too focus on what we share in common. If we all love the Lord, that's what I focus on! Thank you so much for joining our team! :)

Thank you for this. I was a little hesitant about joining because of my Roman Catholic belief. I know there are differences in doctrine. Then I had to laugh, I had a Roman Catholic Mom, a Southern Baptist Grandmother, a Church of England Grandfather and a Jewish Grandfather. Now how could I worry about being on this team? My whole life has been around people of other faiths. And one thing for sure is, I firmly believe in keeping the body of Christ united, not divided. I learned to focus on what we agree on and leave the differences to be my individual choice.

Please join one of these teams:

As in the body of Christ we have brothers and sisters from all different denominational backgrounds. This team was birthed through prayer as God directed by His Spirit. It is my desire to see it grow and flourish in being a blessing to non-believers and believers alike. As I was praying this morning the Lord reminded me that He desires no schism in His body. Because of that I would like to set down some rules of conduct for our family gathering here.

~ As brothers and sisters in Christ we will walk in love towards each other.

~ We may not agree with everything that is presented on the threads here but we will take what we can embrace and apply it to our lives to benefit us as individuals growing in our walk with the Lord.

~ We will post only comments that will uplift and encourage other believers in their walk with the Lord. We will not post negative or potentially hurtful comments about members within our own team, or those on other teams. Postings in our forums should reflect a spirit of love and grace in Christ Jesus. Anyone posting a perceived negative comment will be requested by the Team Leaders to remove it.

~ We will not create division through disrespect of another believer's beliefs or interpretation of scripture. We will agree to disagree in love.

~ We will pray for each other as led by the Holy Spirit.

***Any valid questions can be addressed to either Karen or myself and we will answer them according to our understanding of the Scriptures.

***As a side note, I would like to ask that when you post on the threads that you not duplicate a blog that you have written that is already scrolling on the side bar. Thank you!
