Saved By Jesus!

I was hospitalized last summer for 4 weeks as I suffered heart failure.
Thank all you subscribers for hanging in with me! God be Praised!
I have shared my testimony on the Beacon Blog earlier as to the miracles of my continued life, such as near death experiences and this was no different!
People talk about sudden death, however we all have sudden death…alive..alive…alive…then you are dead!
All except that when us Christians die, we are with our Savior!
Please excuse me for the lack of articles…I will continue to serve the Lord!
God Bless

  1. ” I found this book in large part to supplement much of what Jesus Christ teaches in the Bible.” The Bible requires NO supplementation, my friend. An open mind is an open door to let in paganism and evil, exactly what this book and series preach “open-mindedness”. Sorry if the Word of God offends you. There is no “anger” in this post, just warnings. You are to acknowledge Him as the only true God and Sovereign–through Jesus Christ your Lord. You are to abandon anything that gets in the way of your relationship and true worship of God. Exodus 20:3, “You shall have no other gods before Me.” Being a member of a “fantastic” church means nothing if you don’t heed God’s Word!

    Isaiah 47:13, “You are wearied with your many counsels. Let now the astrologers, those who prophesy by the stars, those who predict by the new moons, stand up and save you from what will come upon you.”

    Shamanism is divination and sorcery and is generally practiced by Indian tribes. The Bible condemns divination as a sin.

    Lev. 19:26, “‘You shall not eat anything with the blood, nor practice divination or soothsaying.”
    Deut. 18:10, “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer.”

    As a devout Christian raised in the church, who is an active member in a fantastic non-denominational church to this day, attending weekly small groups with several pastors in my very own family, you seem to be teetering on dangerous ground with this post. The only mention of divination comes from you and you alone. The Oprah, me, me, me references as well (and I personally can’t stand Oprah)…these all come from you and you alone. While I’m about as far from being a shamanistic Toltec abiding new ager as one can get, I found this book in large part to supplement much of what Jesus Christ teaches in the Bible. To live your life with a grateful heart, leading with love and consideration for all people and things. To find the silver lining and be thankful for all things that come your way, good bad or in-between. To find the lessons to be learned and ways in which to grow. Is it not more self-centered to take things personally from those that throw negativity in your direction than it is to love them in return (aren’t we taught this in church, actually?)? Is it not more self-centered to make assumptions (and we all believe our own assumptions) about what is and isn’t, than it is to keep an open mind and seek to understand the truth in or of anyone or anything, first? The scriptures you mention are based on what you derive in terms of divination in relation to this book which is risky ground to tread on when quoting our Lord and Savior. There seems to be a lot of unnecessary anger and emotion pouring out of this post and it’s hard to understand. I’ve learned a lot of life lessons and gained a lot of knowledge from non-Christians, as well as Christians, in my life. Tread carefully, my friend, and God bless you in all that you say and do in His name.
