Did anyone else feel like Pastor JD was encouraging us in the same way a coach would call in all of his players for that last time-out in the fourth quarter? Going over the defense tactic with each player should they be approached? Do we know the play book?
What can we do if we are tongue-tied or mentally tired from life?
As he was talking about being on the ready with our bibles - to be organized, I thought about those little magnetic page place holders that you can buy. They go over the top of the page with the magnet on both sides holding them in place. I am going to mark the pages with those. Yep, sure am. Thank you, JD.
I found it very refreshing. The opportunities are coming at me more and more, even the past year alone. I seem to be more of a seed planter so far, or a water person. Not too many are praying with me. I really like the scriptures. Especially the outline. Pastor speaks my language. I like graphic organizers. I tend to run into people who say they are believers, but can’t prove it with discussion questions. I have a tendency to ask how they know Jesus, how they know they are saved, etc. They have to understand the whole doctrine of the gospel before they walk away. I don’t hold them, they seem willing to listen, as it isn’t a lecture, but a discourse. It comes from my teaching background. I guess I am one to exhort sleepers back to life, who are believers or I correct incorrect doctrine, giving instructions on how to investigate further and how to pray for salvation.
Why would I need to be told you are copying his outline…I am too. I am not above anyone doing the work to organize…more hands makes light work. Maybe that is why God encourages us so much, not to forsake or abandon fellowship with like minded believers?

The sword of the Spirit … is the word of God. Eph. 6:17
The word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword. Heb. 4:12
The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. II Cor. 10:4-5
I wanted clarification on point no 3: When pastor mentioned about injections, was he referring to bivalent vaccines approved last year by FDA?
Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration amended the emergency use authorizations (EUAs) of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine to authorize bivalent formulations of the vaccines for use as a single booster dose at least two months following primary or booster vaccination. The bivalent vaccines, which we will also refer to as “updated boosters,” contain two messenger RNA (mRNA) components of SARS-CoV-2 virus, one of the original strain of SARS-CoV-2 and the other one in common between the BA.4 and BA.5 lineages of the omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2.
The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalent, is authorized for use as a single booster dose in individuals 18 years of age and older. The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalent, is authorized for use as a single booster dose in individuals 12 years of age and older.
The monovalent COVID-19 vaccines that are authorized or approved by the FDA and have been administered to millions of people in the United States since December 2020 contain a component from the original strain of SARS-CoV-2.
From FDA Press Release on 31 Aug 2022.
Maybe those in America who are working can comment on this regarding the vaccine exemption on these shots.
And let’s continue to pray against this.
In our short time left in these corrupt bodies it would be nice to not have to wear a mask; or (“anti-”)social distance, or lock-down; or, especially, to find out that my loved ones got injected again.
