Before entering the Land of Israel, Joshua wrote three letters to the Canaanite nations. The first letter said, Anyone who wants to leave Israel, has permission to leave. If they refused, a second letter said, Whoever wants to make peace, can make peace. If they again refused, a final letter warned, Whoever wants to fight, get ready to fight. Upon receiving these letters, only one of the Canaanite nations, the Girgashites, heeded the call and settled peacefully.
You 8767 re going to make me cry at my place of work! Then I 8767 ll have to go to the bathroom and get myself together so no one sees me crying (can you tell I have experience doing this lately?). You are right this is no coincidence! Although I can 8767 t help but to be saddened about my situation, I am SO excited for the others who are reading this! My deepest desire is that God will touch other people 8767 s live through these posts and that it will lead to their marriage being restored completely in the name of Jesus!
That was life before I truely gave myself to Christ. I once gave my life to him, but that was automatic since I was a child born from God and I saw the beauty in everything. Somewhere along the lines of life, that all disappeared. A lost little sheep amongst the wolves. Where in darkness ugliness is the face of everyone and everything. Life in Christ I see the beauty in everyone and everything. Like a nice soft-lit candle light, that gives the perfect hugh to show no flaws, to only hightlight the beauty of us all.
On another Sabbath Jesus went into the synagogue and was teaching, and there was a man there whose right hand was withered. The Scribes and the Pharisees watched him to see if he would heal on the Sabbath day in order to find a charge against him. He knew well what they were thinking. He said to the man with the withered hand, "Rise, and stand in the midst." He rose and stood. Jesus said to them, "Here is a question for you--is it legal to do good on the Sabbath day or to do evil? To save a life or to destroy it?" He looked round on them and said to him, "Stretch out your hand." He did so and his hand was restored. They were filled with insane anger, and they discussed with each other what they could do to Jesus.
Yet I also give credence to passages that state 8775 except for adultery (unfaithfulness) 8776 , and 8775 for the sake of peace 8776 . Abuse is NEVER acceptable, yet 8775 emotional/mental abuse 8776 many times is a fine line, and can be fed by the people one hangs around with. There are pessimistic and optimistic individuals, and this affects, is part of one 8767 s emotional health and stability. Sometimes medicine helps, sometimes the side effects are more dangerous. I have lived and witnessed it all(in my spouse).
What I wish I would see more than anything is the body of Christ of women come together and say 8775 I love you whether you stay or go. 8776 I feel this has come down to should 8767 s.. to interpreting correctly to who 8767 s right to what God really wants (seriously?).. and bottom line judgement. I want to honor the stories of the woman who wrote in even asking how to sort herself, to the pastor 8767 s wife who finally left, to the moms who are protecting their kids

The atmosphere of Passover time was always inflammable. The headquarters of the Roman government was at Caesarea, and normally only a small detachment of troops was stationed at Jerusalem but for the Passover season many more were drafted in. The problem which faced the Jewish authorities was how to arrest Jesus without provoking a riot. It was solved for them by the treachery of Judas. Satan entered into Judas. Two things stand out.
The time we saw coming had now come. Jesus was on the road. The synagogues were not now open to him, as once they had been. He had begun, as it were, in the church, where any man with a message from God might expect to find a responsive and receptive audience. Instead of a welcome he had found opposition instead of eager listeners he had found the scribes and Pharisees bleakly waiting to catch him out so now he took to the open road and the hillside and the lake shore.
(ii) There is knowledge. It is the simple fact that men did not know what God was like until Jesus came. The Greeks thought of a passionless God, beyond all joy and sorrow, looking on men in calm unmoved detachment--no help there. The Jews thought of a demanding God, whose name was law and whose function was that of judge--nothing but terror there. Jesus came to tell that God was love, and in staggered amazement men could only say, "We never knew that God was like that." One of the great functions of the incarnation was to bring to men the knowledge of God.
Jesus spoke a parable to them to show that it is necessary always to pray and not to lose heart. "There was a judge," he said, "in a town who neither feared God nor respected man. There was a widow in the same town who kept coming to him and saying, `Vindicate me against my adversary.' For some time he refused. But afterwards he said to himself, `Even though I neither fear God nor respect man, because she bothers me, I will vindicate this widow, lest by her constant coming she exhausts me.'" The Lord said, "Listen to what the unjust judge says. And shall God not vindicate his own chosen ones who cry to him day and night, even though he seem to wait for long? But when the Son of Man comes will he find faith on earth?"
In the simplest of terms, “standing” means honoring the vows you made on your wedding day regardless of your circumstances. In the world’s view, it is “I will love you, if you love me.” This is not what God expects of us in our covenant marriages. In a Christian marriage, we vow“to have and to hold, until death separates.” God was a witness to the covenant vows you made on your wedding day and these vows are not to be taken lightly:
(i) It is extremely significant that more than once Jesus likened the Christian life to a wedding feast. Joy is a primary Christian characteristic. It was said of a famous American teacher by one of her students, "She made me feel as if I was bathed in sunshine." Far too many people think of Christianity as something which compels them to do all the things they do not want to do and hinders them from doing all the things they do want to do. Laughter has become a sin, instead of--as a famous philosopher called it--"a sudden glory." Robert Louis Stevenson was right, when he wrote in The Celestial Surgeon:
We are in agreement in the area of agency. Eve’s sin and actions are her own. In regards to Adams answer to God, he was asked if he ate the fruit, not if he stopped Eve. In a way, it is implied. God faults Adam for listening to his wife. “Oh, you tried to stop her? I see that, why do you love her more than me to listen to her rather then me?” Adam knew what he was doing. He would rather die with eve than live with God.
(c) The Bruised or Bleeding Pharisees. No Jewish Rabbi could be seen talking to any woman on the street, not even his wife or mother or sister. But certain of the Pharisees went further. They would not even look at a woman on the street they even shut their eyes to avoid seeing a woman they, therefore, knocked into walls and houses and bruised themselves and then exhibited their bruises as special badges of extraordinary piety.
(iii) In the third temptation Jesus in imagination saw himself on the pinnacle of the Temple where Solomon's Porch and the Royal Porch met. There was a sheer drop of 955 feet down into the Kedron Valley below. This was the temptation to give the people sensations. "No," said Jesus, "you must not make senseless experiments with the power of God" (:66). Jesus saw quite clearly that if he produced sensations he could be a nine days' wonder: but he also saw that sensationalism would never last.
What happened on the Mount of Transfiguration we can never know, but we do know that something tremendous did happen. Jesus had gone there to seek the approval of God for the decisive step he was about to take. There Moses and Elijah appeared to him. Moses was the great law-giver of the people of Israel Elijah was the greatest of the prophets. It was as if the princes of Israel's life and thought and religion told Jesus to go on.
Jesus was opposed radically to religion by rule. He used a vivid picture. When two people married in Palestine they did not go away for a honeymoon they stayed at home, and for a week kept open house. They dressed in their best sometimes they even wore crowns for that week they were king and queen and their word was law. They would never have a week like that again in their hard-wrought lives. And the favoured guests who shared this festive week were called the children of the bride-chamber.
7. STORY #7 Here is another perfect example on this. Another one of my friends was dating a man for about 6 year. She too started asking God if she should marry him. She got no answer from God for at least 8 months. Again, she got impatient waiting for God to answer her. She went ahead and married the man without any leading from the Holy Spirit to do so, and no confirming activity from the Lord that she should marry the man.
If any of you watched the first Matrix movie, you 8767 ll see that Neo was able to dodge bullets. But when he finally took the offensive and believe in the authority and power he had, he didn 8767 t have to dodge them he simply commanded them to freeze in mid-air and fall. Then HE went on the offensive against the enemy and won instantly. The journey that took the longest was not the defeat it was in him building up his faith.
