Here's some wisdom: Proverbs 1:22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? 23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. 24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; 25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: 26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; 27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. 28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: 29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: 30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. 31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. 32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. 33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

Need a hug, go to mom, need wisdom, go to The Father. Need inspiration, go to The Holy Spirit, need Theology, go to God. Need to know your loved, go to Jesus, The Christ..God's only begotten Son...

Right on Ray.

This is awesome

Need to know why your God a deranged psychopath, read about the passover, the Great Flood or almost anything in Lavicus and remember this, you claim your God is omniscient and omnipotent, so by this logic, God is ultimately responsible for the Jewish concentration camps

I named my two cats Thoughts and Prayers. Because they are useless. 🐱🐱

Look up Curry Blake...his teachings are tremendous!!!

Yes and Amén

"We turn our fear into WISHFULL THINKING" Because dealing with reality is too terrifying.

Needed this today!

Amen

The Most High God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is not the author of fear

Amen

Need this one 💛

Thank You LORD JESUS CHRIST for everything. Amen 🙏👑❤️

I see Ray took a picture of one of his biceps for this one.... 🙂

Unbelief is spiritual blindness to the truth due to a heart that loves darkness rather than light (truth), my friend (John 3:19).

Amen. Also Don’t forget to eat spinach Popeye. 💪

...BUT! ...just like our children! we celebrate HIS Birthday! The King of ALL kings, The LORD of ALL GLORY IS HERE!! IS BORN INTO THE REDEEMING PLAN OF ALL MANKIND !! OUR COVENANT GOD !!

I almost read that as he’s not a baby manager anymore 🤣😂

Yep the message of Jesus is all about fear

He's the Lion of the Tribe of Judah and He's our King, Savior, and Redeemer!

He's not a baby in a manger any more, nor is he a lion. He's merely a character in your minds.

Amen!

He’s NOT a baby in a manger anymore... and we are to be His mouthpiece & ROAR like a lion... the gospel of Jesus Christ!!❤️ Amen!

YES! Please tell people who write Christmas music this!

Amen !

Aslan !

Amen he will come back King of Kings

Amen.

He’s Coming Soon👍

Love it.

How does Jesus and Santa fits together? How does Light and Darkness fit together? What in common Jesus and Christmass has? Jesus has nothing to do with Christmas. David Pawson opens this topic in his sermon and teaches what God thinks about it. ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ youtu.be/HqwxP4hJSzE Practice your right to be informed. God bless everyone.

Oh yes, so true. Powerful. Perhaps you could make this into a Christmas card for next year and add it to your stock of items for sale. I would buy loads. 👍🏼🤗

I got chills

I just woke up and my sleepy brain interpreted this as the lion ate the baby. 😂

It's an image that I wished Christian's would let go of.

Absolutely true but nothing but the truth.

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of knowledge. Only fools despise wisdom and discipline.

They only way to be alive is in fear? But how could god be all loving, yet want people to live constantly in fear?

Thank you Jesus

Job 33:4 "The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life.

Amen

God, Satan was your right hand man you created humans so you are completely responsible for the sins of humanity, so stop blaming us inferior beings and repent because all of this 100% YOUR FAULT

Amen. Love you, Ray <3

Fearmongering is why your religion fading into the footnotes of history.

Do you agree with Mark Spence that life begins before the baby is born. If so, proudly pass this on.At 4 weeks (1st Month):
• Your baby's brain and spinal cord have begun to form.
• The heart begins to form.
• Arm and leg buds appear.
• Your baby is now an embryo and one-fifth of an inch long.

At 8 weeks (2nd Month):
• All major organs and external body structures have begun to form.
• Your baby's heart beats with a regular rhythm.
• The arms and legs grow longer, and fingers and toes have begun to form.
• The sex organs begin to form.
• The eyes have moved forward on the face and eyelids have formed.
• The umbilical cord is clearly visible.
• At the end of 8 weeks, your baby is a fetus and looks more like a human. Your baby is nearly 1 inch long and weighs less than 1/8 of an ounce.

At 12 weeks (3rd Month):
• The nerves and muscles begin to work together. Your baby can make a fist.
• Eyelids close to protect the developing eyes. They will not open again until the 28th week.
• Head growth has slowed, and your baby is much longer. Now, at about 3 inches long, your baby weighs almost an ounce.

At 16 weeks (4th Month):
• The external sex organs show if your baby is a boy or girl. A woman who has an ultrasound in the second trimester or later might be able to find out the baby's sex.
• Muscle tissue and bone continue to form, creating a more complete skeleton.
• Skin begins to form. You can nearly see through it.
• Meconium develops in your baby's intestinal tract. This will be your baby's first bowel movement.
• Your baby makes sucking motions with the mouth (sucking reflex).
• Your baby reaches a length of about 4 to 5 inches and weighs almost 3 ounces.

At 20 weeks (5th Month):
• Your baby is more active. You might feel slight fluttering.
• Your baby is covered by fine, downy hair called lanugo and a waxy coating called vernix. This protects the forming skin underneath.
• Eyebrows, eyelashes, fingernails, and toenails have formed. Your baby can even scratch itself.
• Your baby can hear and swallow.
• Now halfway through your pregnancy, your baby is about 6 inches long and weighs about 9 ounces.

At 24 weeks (6th Month):
• Bone marrow begins to make blood cells.
• Taste buds form on your baby's tongue.
• Footprints and fingerprints have formed.
• Real hair begins to grow on your baby's head.
• The lungs are formed, but do not work.
• The hand and startle reflex develop.
• Your baby sleeps and wakes regularly.
• If your baby is a boy, his testicles begin to move from the abdomen into the scrotum. If your baby is a girl, her uterus and ovaries are in place, and a lifetime supply of eggs have formed in the ovaries.
• Your baby stores fat and has gained quite a bit of weight. Now at about 12 inches long, your baby weighs about 1½ pounds.

At 32 weeks (7th Month):
• Your baby's bones are fully formed, but still soft.
• Your baby's kicks and jabs are forceful.
• The eyes can open and close and sense changes in light.
• Lungs are not fully formed, but practice "breathing" movements occur.
• Your baby's body begins to store vital minerals, such as iron and calcium.
• Lanugo begins to fall off.
• Your baby is gaining weight quickly, about one-half pound a week. Now, your baby is about 15 to 17 inches long and weighs about 3 to 3 3⁄4 pounds

At 36 weeks (8th Month):
• The protective waxy coating called vernix gets thicker.
• Body fat increases. Your baby is getting bigger and bigger and has less space to move around. Movements are less forceful, but you will feel stretches and wiggles.
• Your baby is about 16 to 19 inches long and weighs about 6 to 6½ pounds.

Weeks 37-40 (up to delivery):
• By the end of 37 weeks, your baby is considered full term. Your baby's organs are ready to function on their own.
• As you near your due date, your baby may turn into a head-down position for birth. Most babies "present" head down.
• At birth, your baby may weigh somewhere between 6 pounds 2 ounces and 9 pounds 2 ounces and be 19 to 21 inches long. Most full-term babies fall within these ranges. But healthy babies come in many different sizes.

Oh my heart 😭💯👑💗

“A person’s a person, no matter how small.” -Dr. Seuss ❤️

We've recently entered the realm of grandparents. My understanding is abortion is not only legal, it's pushed on these young women. I live in a very pro-life state where and this is happening. I can't imagine these confused young women in liberal states that are already scared. The devil knows exactly how to play this.

Nope. I agree with the bible of life beginning at first reath & i have 0 respect for a guys opinion on the matter. No uterus? No say!

life begins at conception...proved by science.....all the proof we need is in the word of God...for he knows all while you are still in the womb......deal with it

Some want to wait until full development to kill🤯

Abortion will always be murder, I don't care what democrats say.

Yes, I agree

We just had the March for Life today in Wellington New Zealand. A fantastic turnout and wonderful speeches, videos, testimonials, music, prayers, Haka and the singing of our National Anthem, God Defend New Zealand ! Peaceful but powerful. Estimated around two n half thousand people took part 💛

Ephesians 4:15 but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ,

I wish i could experience becoming a mom. Motherhood... But im 43...

Actually it occurs at conception before going into womb

I just killed millions of life forms in a tissue. I’m a mass murderer. It’s genocide!

Once the egg is fertilized, a new unique strand of DNA exists which will be the same for that individual person until they die on their deathbed perhaps in their 90s or 100s. So life in the form of a unique DNA strand begins at fertilisation. Almighty God knits together that individual in the womb - when God determines that person to be alive is His mystery, but all his/her days are known by God before the foundation of the world.

ELOHIM the Omniscient and Omnipotent God.in terms of creation,He is incomprehensible.

The Bible does teach that life begins at conception. Every culture's view of when human life begins changes as society's values, moral standards, and knowledge about the process of embryonic development change. Prior to the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that allowed abortion on demand, developing embryos were considered unborn persons. Now, even a fetus that could survive on its own outside its mother's womb could be aborted, under certain medical circumstances. This demonstrates that we do not consider an unborn child to be a true human being. Science tells us that human life begins at the time of conception. From the moment fertilization takes place, the child's genetic makeup is already complete. Its gender has already been determined, along with its height and hair, eye and skin color. The only thing the embryo needs to become a fully-functioning being is the time to grow and develop. More importantly, God reveals to us in His Word that not only does life begin at conception, but He knows who we are even before then (Jeremiah 1:5). King David said this about God's role in our conception: "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb . . . your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be" (Psalm 139:13, 16). Society continually seeks to devalue the lives of the unborn, creating its own definitions of humanity based on distorted views of morality. But the undeniable fact is that life begins at creation, and a human is created as soon as he or she is conceived. God is present at our creation; He is, in fact, our Creator. Our value as human beings created in His image is conceived even before we are. gotquestions.org

Beautiful indeed!!!

God has created life beautifully! A perfect design from a Perfect Orchestrator of all that's good. ❤ Every human life at any stage is worth the fight to protect

Good news. Abortion is still illegal in the Philippines

Hang on here didn't your purported messiah Jesus say, “whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire”? (Matthew 5:22). Yet, he himself did so repeatedly, as Matthew 23:17-19 and Luke 11:40 & 12:20 show. So is both Jesus and Newton, who pretty much calls us atheists fools by describing us as "senseless", burning eternally in Hell fire? If not then the Bible cannot be trusted to be an accurate depiction of eschatological justice. 😁

Says the man who didn't even realise the modern dessert banana was not proof of intelligent design. Who is the senseless fool again?

One day you will find out

I often think that self righteous theists don't often realise that they come across as sadly arrogant deluded buffoons. 😁

So you literally believe in a book written in the bronze age and call scientists with all there tech discipline and research fools You really are a card Ray 🤔😜

Idiot works for me

I often find that condescending theists who use these terms are just trying to make up for their own intellectual downfalls

Gratuity you mean?

Yeah you need some gratitude so you can go out and take other people's rights away...

Amen. Gratitude because of the grace bestowed upon us in gift of Jesus Christ. ❤❤❤

Yes for the unmerited grace of God! So thankful for my salvation. I can't imagine living a day without Jesus in my life 💯

💯

Gratitude for its own sake is a wonderful thing.

And how exactly does one “know” the supposed “will of God”?

Well said brother Ray! ♥️✝️♥️🙏

Love is a motivator, we don't want sinners to go to hell forever!

Let me rephrase... Gratuity is the high octane fuel that drives us to do the will of Big Foot.

This is why evolution is not science. The evidence never leads anyone to that conclusion, because the truth be told. No one saw anything.

And that is also why only those who believe evolution, are the only ones allowed to interpret the evidence. But conformity is not science either. ~ Issac

**Teaching post for atheists debates**

When a atheist cannot refute the claims made in what you said. They will ignore the claims and make fun of you instead. This is called attacking the messenger because you cannot refute the message. In hopes that your attack on the messenger discredits the message so they don't have to admit they cannot refute it. it's a fallacy to use this but never worry when they do. Because it only proves that what you posted was beyond their intelligent, so to *save face*, they had to mock and ridicule you.

Nice going M.A., giving me this teaching example.

Example: Notice he did not address anything I said. Just the part that stung. Why? He knows I can prove 99% of evolution is not observable, and M.A. does not want to go down that road. But if you do M.A., just let me know and I will just to show that it can be done. Send one of your cronies over here to challenge this and I'll show you. If he turns out to be a hateful troll he'll go away just like everyone else does off your page.

I don't mind banter, that's makes it not boring. But insults and mockery does nothing in proving anything. But BS from a troll will not be tolerated. And yes I know when I'm debating one of you I'm actually debating 10 or more that I cannot see. You guys either use a forum, blog, or even the messenger to look smarter. Been there seen that when you guys thought I was not smart enough to use google and find where I was being discussed, and where the debate was on atheist discussion sites. And how everyone was chiming in so the one person debating me so they could sound smarter and more educated than what they were.

About 50% can hold their own, the rest go look for help. Then the 50% of those who hold their own *at first*, find that as the debate progresses, they need help also. Not all, about half of the 50%.

M.A., it's more than apparent with each counter post on your page that you need help, but you don't seek it because you would rather mock and ridicule than refute anything. Because if you could refute, you would. But you don't because you cannot. That's another reason I laugh at evolution. You only try to look smarter using mockery, instead of actually being smarter using science. Prove me wrong...Refute the points I made in the meme. Or let the mockery stand from your page proving my points. Read the meme again, pull out the points made, then refute them. ~ Issac

Pity the man that puts the servant of GOD above GOD and as God's Not Dead

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6 NKJV

God is the God-given Savior! 😉

Isn't belief in the correct God (like Abraham) a belief in Jesus? Or does the Trinity not exist?

Even demons believe and confess that Jesus is the Son of God. There is more to it. Be more than what the demons are. Be Holy! Hear Believe Confess Repent Be Baptized

My son was just approached by someone the other day asking if he knew of God the Mother....oh my.....misguided

Pope Francis is trying to unite all religions as one. A one world religion that doesn't claim Jesus as the only way.

So who should we love more??

Pity the man who doesn't require sufficient evidence

Warning , Rapture is near for those in Jesus Christ. Great tribulation like never before , for those left behind . People who mock God living in homosexuality, abortions, looking at porn and so forth will pay the penalty. Repent and have faith in Jesus Christ by the grace of God and turn from all sin. It is almost finished for the world.I stand for God , America and Trump who supports Israel.

Pity the god who has to resort to threats of eternal torment to beings who do not unquestionably obey itself. Such a god (or "God-given Savior," if that is the preferred euphemism) is cruel and unworthy of respect.

The devil believes in God and shudders! He certainly isn't saved. It's about knowing Jesus and trusting in Him alone as your Savior and repenting of sin. When we do this, we become a new creation in Him.

Amen. Doing a study right now about how prophecy was searchable but the mystery that Paul was sent you Proclaim is unsearchable. Never spoken of before. Sad how many people miss it. They live in that prophecy don't know a thing about the mystery.

It's important to use Jesus or Yeshua, by name. Same with Yahweh. "God" is not a name, it is an ontological term of what something is. There are multiple gods, demons are gods, angels are gods, dismembered human souls that have passed on are gods etc. The word 'g-o-d' comes from the Hebrew word 'elohim' and while this word is used to refer to Yahweh over 1000 times in the Bible, elohim is also used to refer to demons, angels, and dismembered human souls within the biblical text. A god (elohim) is a spirit body, and doesn't necessarily refer to a being that is omnipotent and all powerful. This is why Yahweh is refered to of the Lord of lords, the Elohim of elohim. Most people don't understand this. It's important to know and say the name of the one true Elohim, the one true God, because if you just say 'god'...well your prayer could be going to something you weren't intending it to

Pity the man that worships a narcissist.

So many need understanding and wisdom which God gives freely.

You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! James 2:19

The Bible is a compendium of folk tales and fables recounted orally for generations by primitive tribes from the stone age. This is the Old Testament. The new Testes is hearsay since these gospels were written by the faithful not by objective historians of that particular time. There are no gods! === onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/cogs.12138 Keep the Lies of gods away from children! Forcing religion onto minors is essentially a form of child abuse, which scars their ability to reason and also limits their ability to consider the world in an unbiased manner. ''...exposure to religious ideas has a powerful impact on children's differentiation between reality and fiction, not just for religious stories but also for fantastical stories.''

Ray, I feel you’ve exposed the major problem with all religions. It’s not enough for folks to hold their own beliefs; or to believe in a god; or even believe in the same god as yourself; it’s not enough that they even believe in the major doctrines as yourself. No. They must believe exactly as you do. They must understand the texts as you understand them. Those who agree are the in-group; those who don’t are the out-group, and pity those in this group. The thinly-veiled threat that underlies your post will only hold people long enough until they have the courage to challenge its veracity and morality.

WHY NOT??? God is the SAVIOUR?!

Salvation from what...gtfoh

Amazing “Feats”

This All By Design column by the late CRS board member Dr. Glen Wolfrom appeared in Creation Matters, Vol. 23, No. 6, November/December 2018.

Birds are among God’s most fascinating creations, certainly worthy of study — from their annual migrations to nest-building, colorful plumage, communication, and more. One important aspect of these wonderments is the unique and varied design of their feet, used in many ways, including walking, catching prey, preening, and even defense.[1]

The American Coot (Figure 1) has feet that are so odd-looking that Shweta Karikehalli, the author of an online Audubon article,[2] described the bird’s appearance as “wacky.” Each of its oversized toes has two or three greenish-to-yellowish “fleshy lobes” that are connected to its long legs. When in water, these lobes function much like the webbing on ducks’ feet. But on land, walking is assisted by the lobes’ folding out of the way. According to Karikehalli,the coot’s uniquely-designed foot thus makes the bird more adept than most other waterfowl at getting around on both land and water. A few other water birds (some grebes and phalaropes) also have lobed toes, but none have lobes that are as large as those of the coot.

The coot also uses its lobed feet for other purposes.[3] They assist the bird in
becoming airborne — which requires the bird to run across the water’s surface. Also, the feet are used in battles among the male coots. One professor indicated that coots are more prone to hostility than is suggested by their “goofy appearance.”[4]

Here is an example of a unique design for birds’ feet that, unlike those of ducks, render coots capable of efficient transportation, whether on land or water. Unless the lobes appeared suddenly, fully formed and retractable, their evolution in stages would have offered no advantage. We maintain that the “sudden appearance” occurred at creation.

becoming airborne — which requires the bird to run across the water’s surface. Also, the feet are used in battles among the male coots. One professor indicated that coots are more prone to hostility than is suggested by their “goofy appearance.”[4]

Here is an example of a unique design for birds’ feet that, unlike those of ducks, render coots capable of efficient transportation, whether on land or water. Unless the lobes appeared suddenly, fully formed and retractable, their evolution in stages would have offered no advantage. We maintain that the “sudden appearance” occurred at creation.

Can I get an AMEN!!?!!!

I listened to a sermon the other day that was against Christmas. It mentioned how similar Santa was to what scripture says about Jesus, the sermon took this as mocking, but I wonder if its paying homage as opposed to mocking. I wonder if it would be beneficial to teach children about the similarities of Santa and Jesus?

AMEN!!

Amen.

So was jesus born in December 25th or nah?

Amen

Amen

Amen!

Amen!

I agree and I also would like a firetruck please

Amen!!!

Amen.

Yes Only the Truth can save them Recently many antichrist events happening around the world. Even the prosecution of true Christians in many countries. Many false prophets claiming Jesus is not Son of God. I am saddened that even the fact is put in front of people and they still deny it. We are living in the end times and return of our Savoir is soon. I truly believe this

Santa was a nice man paying tribute to the real St Nickolas be cause they love children and follows Christ’s love. It worked for us.

It's odd that Santa also spells Satan.......

Amen !!!!!!

TRUE.....

Amen.

Amen

Amen

My nieces sometimes come across these santa cartoons but i tell them he is not real, and the real Superhero and the gift of Christmas is our Jesus.

Yessssss! AMEN!!!

I’m very disappointed that my church (Assembly of God) had Santa & Mrs. Clause for the kids. Instead it would have been better to have a live nativity! I pray they would do this in the future, there’s plenty of people to do it.

Its wrong lie. Lie is a lie. Thou shall not lie.

Amen..lying about santa will only make them believe you lie about Jesus..

Amen

7 Reasons You Can’t Do Everything the Bible Says We cannot obey everything the Bible commands. Of course, this is easier done than said. People (including the type of people with college degrees) claim to do everything the Bible says, but do not. If someone claims to do everything the Bible says, they are either ignorant of its content, or just simply lying. Certainly, we should desire to obey everything that God commands us, but not everything God commands is to us as the church. No matter how much desire a person has, it is simply impossible to obey everything in the Bible. Here are a few reasons why. 1. Where you live Many commands in the scripture concern the nation Israel and specific geography. Unless you live in the Middle East you simply cannot obey commands about land division, going to a city, respecting the land, etc. 2. Your parents It is likely you are not a Jew by birth. It is less likely you are a Levitical Jew. If you were not born a Jew (you were not born to Jewish parents) then there are many commands that are simply not for you to obey being Gentile. The law was given to the Jews. 3. The temple is not built Orthodox Jews who make it their practice to follow the law of Moses do not follow every law today. Why? Many laws require the temple to be built. If the temple is not built, they cannot obey the laws of sacrifices, tithing, and the priesthood. 4. You should do right Your desire to do right by God means that you cannot do everything the Bible says. There are devilish doctrines, lies, and the actions of sinful men recorded in the Bible. It is important to make sure what you are trying to do was actually instructed by God, and not by his enemies. The Bible is often used to justify wrong teachings and behaviors by taking Biblical instructions out of their context. 5. You are human There are things in the Bible that only God could do, that is, God manifest in the flesh. You cannot die on the cross for the sins of the world. You cannot be water baptized without sin. There are other commands God gives angels to do, and you are no angel. While we’re on the topic, the Bible teaches that there is none good, and none righteous. We are all sinners, which means none of us obey everything God instructs by nature. Even if you are saved today, your old man is still present in your flesh fighting against the spirit. 6. God changes his instructions There are many opposite and contradictory commands in the Bible (see Luke 10:4-5 and Luke 22:35-36). If God says pork is forbidden in one place, and in another place says it is allowed, which do you obey? No matter which you choose, you cannot do both, and so cannot do everything the Bible says. 7. Who you are in Christ If you are saved today it is by the preaching of the cross, and you are a member of the church, the body of Christ. The doctrine of the church, the body of Christ, was a mystery throughout the prophets of your Bible until first revealed to the apostle Paul. This mystery church and its instructions can only be found in Paul’s epistles alone. Trying to obey the instructions to God’s nation, while being God’s church is a sure way to confusion. These are only seven reasons. There are many more, but these reasons emphasize the need to rightly divide the Bible to know what God wants us to do. You should read everything in the Bible, and can learn from every passage in the Bible. All scripture is profitable, but not all is for you to obey. You can’t do everything the Bible says, but you should sincerely try to do everything the Bible says to you.

Ray I loved your interview with Janet and found it so encouraging. Since then I’ve watched and learned from your videos which have eased my fear of witnessing to the lost. I appreciate you!
