Heavenly Father, we ask that you comfort our dear sister and her family as they struggle with the trials they now endure. Send the Holy Spirit to help them see past the difficulties to see your Son at their side. We do not know the facts, but you do. Your promise to your people that abide in Christ is that you will make all things work for their good. We testify that this is so. Your ways are best.

Take away Sister Adina's guilt with the thought that you are the not only the Comforter, but the Great Physician. That if we will trust in your love and your power, then all things will indeed work for our good. If our sister is not in your will, then help her to see it and to do it. We thank you for bringing into our fellowship and pray your blessings upon her and her family. We also pray that you will send one of your children to minister to this family in Romania. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

Brother Thomas the untruthfullness of your accusation is seen by the fact that you posted here. If you were banned, then how is it you are posting? We asked to you stop calling people Jesuits and you would not. We continued to allow you to post in the non-SDA forums hoping you would behave, but all may see that you continue to call us names. I am sorry, but we now will have to block your posting privileges until you can control your desire to injure our work of proclaiming the gospel. To accuse and attack in this forum indicates how far removed you are from His Spirit. We love you and appreciate your desire to follow God, but you need to be more kind  to others who may not understand what you do and also to others who understand more than you do. Bearing false witness against God's people is a sin. You may do it innocently, but still you injure His cause.

Thank you Liane, Richard and all of you praying for my problems. I am happy to tell you my mother-in-law is feeling much better. Is my understanding it was only a bad indigestion that let her very weak for a while. Now her appetite is back and slowly she regains strength. We are still waiting for a diagnosis for my father-in-law. I'll let you know as soon as I'll learn. Praise God and thank you again.

My mom has struggled with a defective heart for most of her life, yet it has intensified over the last thirty years with conjestive heart failure. Monthly as much as 9 liters of fluid is removed from her tummy. This has been going on for close to a year. What a struggle she has endured, yet she is faithful.

This morning she did not recognize my dad. She was exceedingly afraid of him. So he called to have me talk with her with sweet words of reassurance, especially of God's love and watchcare. Through her suspended reality she said she was not worthy of His watchcare, but I reminded her that she was worth the price of the life of dear Jesus - just for her He would have died. She cried!

I ask for prayers of comfort and reassurance for this dear woman.

Thank you.

Heavenly Father, thank you for your love and watch care over your children. Thank you for the words of comfort you have given Sister Sybil to share with her mother. You have blessed your people with wisdom, grace, and your Spirit. We pray for Sister Sybil's mother this morning, please comfort her and draw her close to you. If there is anything that needs to be made right in her life, please bring this to her mind and give her repentance that she may have the blessed peace that passes understanding. Give our dear sister Sybil an extra measure of grace to comfort and bless her mother we pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Amen! With prayers for your mother, and for you, Sybil, as you minister, physically and spiritually to your mother.  I have been there, and can certainly empathize.

Thank you so much for your prayers for Mama. Over the past several days she has regained a level of oxygen that she is once more thinking clearly. It has been an answer to prayer and we are so grateful.

When a loved one loses their cognitive abilities, you have literally lost that person. It is Mama's mind that I love. Her body has betrayed her through generations of cardiac defect, but her mind, sweet Seventh-day Adventist Christian mind, is the one thing we long to hold on to.

Again, thank you for your prayers. They were sorely needed and sweetly answered.

Pray that the Holy Spirit will guide them away from their support of Jesuit-based, preterist interpretation, and open their minds to reconsidering that historicist interpretation is essential to Adventist belief and spirituality.

Heavenly Father, I know nothing of these 'interpretations'.  There is only one valid interpretation, that of Your Word.  We know that the only correct understanding of The Bible is that understanding led by The Holy Spirit.  Precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little and there a little.  Teach us all to prayerfully study Your word, leaving the understanding up to You and Your Holy Spirit.

Satan works in such deceptive ways, using truth but mingling just a little lie - to deceive and confuse.  We pray for cognizance to recognize those little lies, to stay on the path of Jesus' righteousness. 

Thank you, Lord, for the gift of a prophet.  Your words for this generation, given through Sister White, is such a blessing to all who will receive such understanding.  Amen

Oh, Martin! To see the violence shown on CNN is one thing - and the world does see it - yet to be in the midst of it is yet another. Hold fast, dear brother.

We are living in the midst of an "epidemic of crime," at which thoughtful, God-fearing men everywhere stand aghast. The corruption that prevails, it is beyond the power of the human pen to describe. Every day brings fresh revelations of political strife, bribery, and fraud. Every day brings its heart-sickening record of violence and lawlessness, of indifference to human suffering, of brutal, fiendish destruction of human life. Every day testifies to the increase of insanity, murder, and suicide. Who can doubt that satanic agencies are at work among men with increasing activity to distract and corrupt the mind, and defile and destroy the body?--Ministry of Healing, pp. 142, 143.

And we can add to this, to disrupt the spreading of His message to starved souls and threatening the lives of His messengers!

Read the following lines and appropriate the sentiment as your own:


     Other refuge have I none,
        Hangs my helpless soul on Thee;
     Leave, O leave me not alone!
        Still support and comfort me;
     All my trust on Thee is stayed,
        All my help from Thee I bring;
     Cover my defenseless head
        With the shadow of Thy wing.
  For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven. Psalm 119:89

My second cousin, Aiden - only three years old, has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He is responding to chemotherapy; however, I request your prayers for this baby as medicine alone will not heal this child. Thank you.

"In times like these, we have a Savior!"

Mother's blood pressure is so low that she cannot take critical heart medication. The hospice nurse said "she is on her way out." Of course, that has been said before but there are other indications of this actually being the case this time.  She is rarely awake.

This quote is so very comforting:

The Bible is the garden of God. Are you discouraged? Are you bereaved? The word of God tells you not to sorrow as those who have no hope, for there will be a relinking of the family chain. When we look upon our dead, we think of the morning when the trump of God shall sound, and when the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. Over the rent sepulcher of Joseph, Christ proclaimed, "I am the resurrection and the life." A little longer, and we shall see the King in his beauty. A little longer, and he shall wipe away all tears from our eyes. A little longer, and we shall have a robe of purity, whiter than any fuller on earth could whiten it. It is the garment woven in the loom of heaven, not to cover over our sins, for Jesus takes away the sin of the world, but to clothe us in the righteousness of Christ. I want to behold him until I shall be changed into his likeness; for by beholding we become changed. We should talk of the crown of life, of the heaven of bliss that awaits the faithful. May God help us to press the battle to the gate. He will place the crown of life upon our heads as we proclaim, "Worthy, worthy is the Conqueror." We shall exclaim, "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing."  {ST, April 23, 1894 par. 8}
     Do you want heaven? Then will you show the line of demarkation between you and the world, and hear at last the words of approbation, "Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord."
                                                                -
  {ST, April 23, 1894 par. 9}

Christ has the key to our graves. He has gained victory over death!

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.  And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.  And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.  He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
 
Amen!

Dear Sybil,
I will pray for your mother, your cousin and for you.  I know it is especially hard for you as you cannot be with your mom.  Jesus' promise that He will return for His faithful ones, 1Thess. 4:13-18 is such a comfort.

Dear Sister, I am so sorry for your sadness in this. How blessed your mother has been to have you with her through all of this. God will indeed see you both through. :)
With Christian Love,

Feel free to re-post news about Dane in that forum [trO].
 
Brother Kevin



From Kevin M. Barrett:

Please remember Dane Griffin and his family as Dane goes into surgery this coming Sabbath. He has a rare form of cancer. An anointing service is planned prior to the surgery.
I have no further details.

Dane is the director of media development for the Michigan Conference, president of
Adventists Affirm and is a well-known speaker throughout our church in North America.

What a shock!  Dane and Vicki Griffin were the highlights of the KY-TN campmeeting, which closed May 31.  He was the picture of health, and gave us such challenging sermons/lectures it is no wonder that the old devil wants him silenced.

Please post all updates, many of us will be eagerly wanting to know, and we will certainly be praying.

It appears or seems like satan is trying to silence what the Lord is trying to do through Dane Griffin. Also, the devil will use this so that others will look upon the health message with indifference.
