Truth Brings Freedom- Part Six



His truth brings freedom.

 Because I’d been part of an online Bible study only to later find out these ladies were part of a cult, I had a long talk with the Lord——

“Lord, what do You say? Do You want me to write about this?” Continue reading Truth Brings Freedom- Part Six

The Truth Comes Out- Part Two

The truth comes out. And this is how it all started – Part Two.

(For Part One, see previous post.)

Previously, I’d arranged scheduled times for our little Bible study group (ladies who contacted me via social media) to interact via FaceTime. As we began, they asked me to lead our group with prayer.

Then we took turns reading Bible scriptures. But they always wanted me to read out loud some passages they sent.

They said they needed to hear my English to help strengthen their language skills. Their passages about God seemed a little strange, but I couldn’t find anything I knew was incorrect.

So I continued reading the passages out loud. When I asked them to forgive my Southern dialect, they just giggled. I thought, “How cute.” After I read each passage, they’d say, “Let’s ponder what it means to us.” Okay. Ponder. I haven’t heard that word in a long time. Cute.

Then we’d each take a turn explaining what the passage meant to us. (After pondering.) I couldn’t find anything particularly wrong with these passages, even though it felt strange. But I couldn’t figure out why.

Also they’d send me these little videos and later asked if I understood them. The videos were a little odd. But again, I just couldn’t put my finger on it.

I looked over these passages and couldn’t find anything that stood out. But I just kept having those feelings of question. Were they trying to convert me? To what?I was already a Christian. They said they were Christian too. So what is it? Why do I feel so strange about this? What’s their motive?

By the third week, we now had three ladies and myself as part of our “Bible study” group.

 

Finally, after seeking God’s direction, I asked them, “To you, who is Jesus?” Followed by, “Do you believe there is a heaven and a hell?” I had gotten these questions from my “Share Jesus Without Fear” App. Here’s a link explaining how this program works : Share Jesus Without Fear.

They answered correctly, “Jesus is God,” and “Yes, we do.”

But when I asked, “What’s more important to you, the Bible or these passages?”

(Part three- coming forth next post. Stay tuned.)

And Jesus, answering them, began to say: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and will deceive many.  Mark 13:5,6 NKJV

And He said: “Take heed that you not be deceived. for many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and , ‘The time has drawn near.’ Therefore do not go after them. Luke 21:8 NKJV

Don’t be fooled by those who speak their empty words and deceptive teachings telling you otherwise. This is what brings God’s anger upon the rebellious! Ephesians 5:6 TPT

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10 NKJV

 

 

The Truth Comes Out -Part Four

 The truth comes out. Some ladies contacted me via social media and wanted to start a Bible study online. They said they were Christians. But they also wanted to include some passages from their book.

After three weeks of online interaction, they sent me a (pdf) copy of their book. That’s how I found out they were in a cult, by googling the author. Yep, sometimes the truth comes forth through Google. After discovering they were part of a cult, I became afraid. After all, the article told how some of their members killed a woman at a McDonalds.

Truth Continues- Part Five

Truth continues. After three weeks of online Bible study,  I discovered my new friends were in a cult and trying to convert me. Shudder. Then fear came. I hate fear, don’t you?

But after talking to God about it, I had a plan.

These ladies contacted me via social media and wanted to use FaceTime for a Bible study group. They also included some additional passages in our study, It felt like they were trying to convert me. But they said they were Christians, Me too. So why do I feel like something is up?

Finally, after seeking God’s direction, I asked them, “To you, who is Jesus?” Followed by, “Do you believe there is a heaven and a hell?” These questions were from my “Share Jesus Without Fear” App. Here’s a link explaining how this program works : http://sharejesuswithoutfear.com/.

The Truth Comes Out- Part One

The truth comes out. And this is how it all started –

Last month, I was contacted by a lady through Twitter and she asked to connect to my Facebook as well.

She seemed so friendly and asked if we could study the Bible together. When I asked, she said she was a Christian. Responding to my silly comments, her laughter seemed so innocent.

Never Give Up

“Never give up,” he said. Does it sometimes seem as though everything is going wrong? Have you ever felt like giving up?

Never give up. Remember failure is not falling down. Failure is not getting up again. And I have decided I’m getting up again. How about you?

This is a picture of my grandfather, Gardener Davis. He died in 1951. The only thing I have from him is this picture given to me by my Mother. But the greatest treasure I have from him is his statement to my Mother, which she passed on to her children, “Never Give Up.”

True Love in Marriage

True love in Marriage – Here’s my secret for success: PRAY A LOT! No kidding.

While dating, I prayed seeking God’s will. Handsome’s blue eyes and sweet smile won my heart, but I still sought God’s will. After falling in love, I continued to ask God for His wisdom concerning this relationship.

This is my advice for all who seek true love. To begin with, invite God in your life.  Ask Him to fill your heart with His love. It’s the greatest love you’ll ever experience. Then seek God’s will concerning your relationship with another love in your life. since God has a plan for your life, it will include your future mate.

Also I read in God’s Word (The Bible) that He created marriage to be between one man and one woman. Therefore that is what I believe fully. Just thought I’d let you know how I feel.

For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior} shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16 AMP

For God did not send the Son into the world to judge and condemn the world [that is, to initiate the final judgement of the world], but that the world might be saved through Him. John 3:17 AMP
