    No Nicolaitans reacted to Invicta in Whats for Supper...   
    My mother never made anything like that, the only rice she used was for milk puddings. She hated currants, vinegar, and pepper, and had no sense of smell. Her two sister had a limited or no sense of smell, She was a very fussy eater,
     When my wife introduced her to Courgettes/Zucchini she called them 'those cucumber things', when I said that they were just baby marrows and you like them, she said "They don't look like it."  The interesting thing was when we introduced her to pizza..  
    Sometimes people use strange names for their dishes. French chef Paul Bocuse has Wooden Leg soup.  Welsh chef Tom Norrington-Davies has Toenail Pie and Rabbits in Jackets.

    The sheep wanted more food and needed a more efficient means of growing forage and transporting hay. So they had a few meetings, pooled their resources, and bought this.........

    I haven't updated much, and for that I apologize. Here is the latest - and it isn't good news.
    "Three weeks ago, my husband, Attila, had a pacemaker installed. We were expected the best, as part of what we discussed with the doctor. Since then, Attila has gotten sicker and sicker. Previously his heart was performing at 55%-60% on ejection (which is healthy), now he is closer to 40%. All this week he has had fainting issues, and the meds are making him ill. We also learned that the group that has been paying for our rent had a change to their grant (Illinois funding issues), and as of October 31st, they will no longer support us. I am going to say it----I am feeling desperate, as we used to get by with furniture refinishing, but with Attila ill, we have not been able to work on anything in a while. We need to raise two months of rent, as it will take us that much time to find another option or to try and get Attila back into better shape. I am asking people to donate, share, and pray. We have not been in this poor a condition since the start of the heart issues, and I know the stress is hurting Attila, as he feels responsible for providing. We need financial help with rent as much as I need it to help Attila feel more confident. He has hit a low point today, when the test results came in, and he feels quite ill. We need prayer and we need assistance. God has been so good to us for this long, and we need another 2-3 months of help to take the pressure off of Attila."

    No, the mortar hardened up just fine over the weekend, thank the Lord.. This is my first time laying block and I have about $7k in materials on this project, so I'm just a little nervous about everything turning out OK.

    him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
    I still don't know what the "forfeiting salvation" verses are that you're referring to?
    Did God draw you to salvation? Did the Holy Spirit convict you? How does this work? All that I can say is that if a person realizes and understands that they are lost, and there is something inside of them which is convicting them that they need to be saved...then God has drawn and the Spirit has convicted. I see nothing in the Bible stating what the drawing consists of or what the convicting consists of. Each individual who is drawn and convicted can only answer that for themselves. Some may have a deep conviction producing tears; some won't. Some may have a deep drawing that feels crushing; some won't. That's why I sometimes shudder when people "share their testimony". Oftentimes, people will share a testimony of what they "experienced". One of my early problems was hearing a man testify that it felt like a lightning bolt when down his back when he got saved. Things like this cause others to wonder about their salvation, because they didn't "experience" the same thing or something similar. I'm just going to be blunt...it doesn't matter one iota what Brother Joe experienced, or what Sister Sue experienced. It doesn't matter one iota what Brother Joe felt, or what Sister Sue felt. THERE ARE NO EXPERIENCES OR FEELINGS ASSOCIATED WITH SALVATION IN GOD'S WORD. IT'S ALL ABOUT FAITH AND BELIEF.  GOD WANTS YOU TO TRUST HIM AND HIS WORD...NOT WHAT BROTHER JOE SAYS...NOT WHAT SISTER SUE SAYS...AND NOT WHAT NO NICOLAITANS SAYS. HE WANTS YOU TO TRUST, BELIEVE, AND HAVE FAITH IN...HIM AND HIS WORD. Did you come to him? Did you believe in him (his death, burial, and resurrection)? If so, you were saved, and he will IN NO WISE cast you out. Christ is quite clear...if you eat (eateth) of this bread. There is no continuing action shown. In dealing with the Samaritan woman, she wanted the water that Christ offered so that she would never have to draw water again...he was that water. Christ used the example of manna, because that's what the people he was speaking to brought up. They brought it up, not Christ. Christ used their own example against them. Yes, the Israelites had to gather manna everyday, six days a week, for 40 years. For 40 years, manna fell from heaven. For 40 years, they had to gather it every day six days a week. Christ came once. ONCE. He died once. ONCE. He shed his blood once. ONCE. No going back daily, no going back year after year...he did it once. He offered himself ONCE for ALL. Salvation produces a change in the one who is saved. Our "wants" change. Was there a change in you after accepting Jesus Christ as Savior? Did the things you used to do (sin) bother you if you did them after salvation? Did you have new desires...desires to do things that were right instead of wrong? If so, Christ will in no wise cast you out. The Bible is clear; if someone "leaves the faith", they were never truly saved to begin with (1 John 2:19). It's not about forfeiting salvation...or losing salvation. It's about whether one was saved at all. If a person leaves the faith, it's because they weren't saved. Some people come to church for nefarious reasons...to get what they can from the church, to make connections, to be popular, to look good to others, to make someone else happy, etc... They might put on a good show for a while, they may fool the members, the preacher, and the community. Yet, after a while, they fade away and disappear. What happened was...they came to "the church"...they didn't come "to Christ". How do you know if you're saved? Were you drawn to salvation? Did "something" cause you to realize that you needed God...that you needed Christ?
    Were you convicted of your sinful state? Did "something" cause you to realize that you were a sinner and needed to be saved?
    Did you believe in your heart that the Lord Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the grave the third day? Did you believe that he did that for you?
    If you did that, you've eaten his flesh, drank his blood, and he will in no wise cast you out.
    Roselove, you, your flesh, and the Devil have you concentrating on everything that can cause you to have doubts instead of concentrating on Christ's incredible, amazing, and inexplainable sacrifice for you. Stop it...just stop it. Stop concentrating on what you think is wrong, and concentrate on what is right. Stop looking for loopholes, and start looking at Christ. You're in a battle, and I feel for you...I know what it's like. However, as I've said before, and I say it again...you have got to trust him and his word...and nothing else. NOTHING ELSE ROSELOVE...

    No Nicolaitans got a reaction from Invicta in We FINALLY received a miracle check in the mail!!!   
    YES! After all of these years, and after hearing the many testimonies of others who received their "miracle checks" in the mail...it has finally happened to us!
    I went to the mail yesterday, and nestled in and amongst everything was an envelope from our insurance agency...I thought the color of the paper (that was visible through the envelope's window) looked strange. So it seems that after spending about $10,000 on our new heat/air system and the new roof this year, they have lowered our yearly insurance cost!
    I opened the envelope, and therein was a check...one of those miracle checks that everyone talks about! They had pro-rated the difference between our old premium and the new premium due to the improvements on our house! I unfolded the letter, and at the bottom was a check! A miracle check...for...

    Still, it's a blessing, and it's certainly a blessing that our premium was lowered by about $130 a year.
