Passing along. Pray for brothers and sisters who are persucuted around the world for their faith. We [I,myself] forget just how blessed weve been in America to worship freely.


Just Now in the US.

Happy Easter brothers and sisters! I think as I get older, the depth of the meaning of today becomes more revealed to me. Among all the junk and strife around us there simply is nothing that can separate us from the love of Christ. Reflecting on this truth provides a lot of perspective. Rejoice and be glad my friends!

We had our own little miracle this week and I just want to bring praise to our Lord. My wife and I had been expecting our seventh child. Late last year we found out it was a boy. Early this year we went for a routine sonogram and my wife could tell the technician(who had done every child except one) had seen something wrong.

Long story short, after an in-depth sonogram and talking the high risk pregnancy doctor(who is the best doctor at the hospital) we found out that our son would have a cleft lip and palate. We ourselves could easily see the gap in his lip and gum like from the sonogram. While this is not a big deal as far as medical issues go and can easily be corrected over the years, it still requires many painful surgeries and dentist visits and the cleft in the palate pretty much ends chances of breastfeeding which really hit my wife hard.

After we found out, my wife started doing research and we started getting prepared for the extra things we would have to do. My wife started seeing posts on a cleft group about where people had been given the worst outcomes yet were completely wrong at birth so that gave us hope and we prayed for that but we prepared for the worst. After which we had two more sonograms which even with his hand across his face showed a very minor cleft in his lip, this also gave us more hope. Late Wednesday night, on my birthday my son was born, very minor cleft lip, with no cleft palate or gum notch. We went from several surgeries and a bone implant to a very minor surgery that will be done before he can remember. He also has no issues breastfeeding. We both believe a miracle was done before he was born because we both saw the gap in his gum and the doctor said he palate was affected.

While small in the grand scheme of things, God can and will still do miracles.

Lest we forget also today. Even though we disagree with those in authority a lot of times. Elected officials. We need to pray for them daily.
1 Timothy 2:1-4
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

Since this is a religious thread and all. Seems like appropriate place to share prophecy from prophets. Everyone that knows me on here knows I am a fan of prophets such as Robin Bullock and Hank Kunman. I find a lot of value in the word of our almighty God.

This may be my favorite person to listen to. Found him on the radio driving home from work in the morning. His tone and illustrations are just perfect to me. I really feel like I’m receiving the word as I listen. I was disappointed to find he had already passed away but his lessons are free to listen to at this website. Here is an example for you. This is the first part of a 5 part lesson :

Asking for prayers for my wife. The covid mRNA shot has done a number on her. Otherwise healthy, fit, and active and never had a problem in her life. She now has blood clots, an abnormal mammogram, and now heart arrhythmia. Her doctor has referred her to a cardiologist and told her not to get the covid booster. The doctor said, “Well, there’s a lot we don’t know about the vaccine.” A little late, doc.

Just prayed for her. My stepdaughter had to stay in the hospital for a couple of days with myocarditis. Doctors think it was from her last vaccine shot. She’s back home now but it’s worrisome to have a healthy 19 year old have heart problems.

Really struggling mentally with some sadness, afterlife thoughts and family relationships. Life is short and I feel so uncertain.

Birdman Ill be praying for you. Think about this and feel free to let me/us know if you have anymore questions. Good starting point in answering or responding to your post above.

"In answering questions about life after death, we are left with only two sources to consult. Either we turn to human experience or we turn to the Word of God. If we turn to human experience, we find many guesses, many ideas, many theories—but no sure answers. That’s because, in the nature of the case, no human has a sure answer. The only people who have the answer are dead! That leaves us with the Word of God. In God’s Word we find ample, abundant answers. God who knows the future knows what happens when we die, and he hasn’t left us to wonder about it. The Bible is filled with information on life after death!

If you want the answer in one sentence here it is: What happens after you die depends on what happens before you die." Heres what Bible says. Plenty more than what is listed below.

Birdman If you are a christian. Truly saved, have a relationship with God through Jesus Christ his son. You have nothing to fear -afterlife. Actually you will be looking forward to it. Im not going to Heaven because Im a member of a church,tithe,good citizen, Fill in the blank. Im going to heaven because of my beleif and faith in Jesus Christ finished work on the cross. Because I beleive He [Jesus Christ] overcame death, hell and the grave.

John 3:16 FOR GOD SO LOVE THE WORLD,THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELEIVE IN HIM,SHALL NOT PERISH,BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.
JOHN3:17
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

God gives us the freewill to chose him or follow our own will,desires. The choice is ours.
Make no mistake. My advice and Bible is very clear. We dont just walk around here on earth to live an average lifespan of 72.5 years so we can die,our bodies get thrown into a grave and thats it.
Everyone has eternal life. We decide where we will spend it. Im as im-perfect as they come. Try to do right thing,be good dad,husband,citizen,co worker etc. But I come up short, certainly dont walk on water. But praise God he loves me,you, all man enough to rob heaven of its richest treasure,his son and send him to this earth over 2021 years ago, to make a way for a no good sinner like me. Changed my life forever. Have a peace that passes all understanding. Thats actually a goid ole hym song by the way. I have trials still,battles. But Birdman I have a peace like no other. Even in my trials. Anyone can have that peace. ITS FREE. A GIFT. Why we celebrate Christmas, that Gift God gave the world when he sent his son
  • Hebrews 9:27-28​



    27 Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, 28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
  • John 14:1-3​



    1 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
  • Philippians 1:21-23​


    This is Paul, who knows when he dies, hes going to heaven.
    21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. 22 If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! 23 I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far;


  • Revelation 20:11-15​


    11 Then I saw a great white throne(A) and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence,(B) and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small,(C) standing before the throne, and books were opened.(D) Another book was opened, which is the book of life.(E) The dead were judged(F) according to what they had done(G) as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades(H) gave up the dead(I) that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done.(J) 14 Then death(K) and Hades(L) were thrown into the lake of fire.(M) The lake of fire is the second death.(N) 15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life(O) was thrown into the lake of fire.

I just worry the Bible has been written by man so many times it all conflicting. Older bibles were racist. I have family who still live by that with white only marriage. No alcohol. No sex before marriage. The belief you must live close to your parents. The belief you can beat a slave.
