Thank you Mishael.

I know I was moved by the Holy Spirit when I wrote it. I could not take the credit, but Glory to God.

Since I was saved, I tried the best to understand the Bible and claimed the treasures of wisdom and knowledge as Colossians 2:3 says.

I came back for at least ten. I pray there are more. This is a parallel of what the Lord says..Genesis18:23-33.

Those who have ears, let them hear what the Lord says.



Ronnette's comment on 2022-08-23 21:14:40:

You are correct Chris. I cannot just leave. We need all the saints and encourage everyone to be saved. God wants us to take care of everyone until we have ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;Revelation 5:11

We really are in perilous times. The evil forces are more pronounced on earth. I personally will be responsible to God if I do not share the truth that is all based on the Bible.

Just to let everyone know I am more comforted by each of your kind responses. You guys inspired me to do more.

Romans 1:11-12

For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established; That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me. I prayed for each and everyone of you and your family to be stronger, healthier, joyful, and at peace in God's grace. Agape.

I'm sorry to read that you intend leaving off contributing here Ronnette as all you've shared with us has been very useful & for the building up of the saints.

But you must needs obey the Lord's leading and we know that wherever He leads us, they will be to pastures green. I pray "that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain", to God's Glory.


Bill's comment on 2022-08-22 14:19:59:

Dear Ronnette. Now unto him who is able to keep us from falling and present

Us faultless before His presences with ever exceeding joy to the only wise God

And saviour and Father be glory and majesty dominion and power through Christ

Jesus our lord Amen!

Please be assured that you will be missed and not forgotten .


Ronnette's comment on 2022-08-22 11:03:59:

Blessings to ALL and glory to God No. It was a song I heard when my mother died and made me a little bit away from sorrow. I was just being funny. We should all be excited because 2 Corinthians 5:8.

Nice to know we are keeping each other checked with the words.

I go where the Spirit tells me to go. I actually purging a lot of things to donate to most needed people. I just made a full storage of things in Colorado I need to sell to help some people in need. If you guys can help me find buyers that will be great. When my mother died I realized I just need one pair of clothes and one pair of everything. I hope someone in need can benefit in ALL proceeds..

Thank you all for kind words and blessings. I have many things to share that I found out lately. by reading the Bible. Amazing as I catch up with all your level of understanding-what God wants us to know.

Happy Blessed Monday/week.


Curious?'s comment on 2022-08-22 10:20:37:

Ronnette, I concur with both Mishael and GiGi. I've read the things you have shared and find plenty of value in those things. I do hope that you will remain here. The only thing I am curious about is that in one of your posts (I believe yesterday), you said, and I quote "You only have one chance in life and when you die, you die pecker head."

If you are still here, can you please elaborate on what you meant by "pecker head?" Was that directed at anyone in particular?


GiGi's comment on 2022-08-22 09:36:44:

Dear Ronnette,

Why do you say that this post is your farewell message? Are you ceasing your participation here? I hope not. You add a perspective to our discussions that is of value and causes me to think on matters more deeply and go to Scripture for answers. That is always a good thing.

so, I hope you will continue with us here. Blessings to you today.


Mishael's comment on 2022-08-22 09:09:57:

Excellent post.


Ronnette (My Prayers to ALL) See YOU in the cloud's comment on 2022-08-22 07:55:30:

Myfarewellmessagetothissite Matthew 10:14, Luke 9:5. God tells me to go back and convince one more time the people reading this site-must know that God sent his only begotten Son to destroy sins. He died once for all of us Galatians 3:28 in a very powerful way. A pattern that is similar in the Old Testament-sacrificial shedding of blood of the lamb. God knows we cannot save ourselves. So we need a Saviour Jesus Christ. He did it for us All. My prayers are to help everyone understand this basic concept and many will be saved. 1 Corinthians 15:1-4. We do not believe in vain, nor we put the work of ALL apostles, most especially Paul who was the last apostle to write plethora of information for everyone to be saved. Remember the Bible is complete by itself. God gave us a free gift of grace Romans 5:15-18. The ten Commandments are for us to see how sinful we are. That is why Paul calls it a schoolmaster Galatians 3:24-25. So when you believe, trust and have faith in Jesus Christ's blood that He shed for our sins Romans 3:25; 1 John 2:2; 1 John 4:10 we die with Him Galatians 2:20. That is the baptism without submerging yourself into the water Acts 1:5, Acts 10:47,Roman's 6:3, Galatians 3:27, 1 Corinthians 10:2. We are not divided Christians 1 Corinthians 1:13-16, 1 Corinthians 12:13. Once you are saved you are sealed Ephesians 1:13, 2 Corinthians 1:22, John 6:27. Jesus sent Paul to seal us Gentiles Romans 15:28. So grieve not Ephesians 4:30. When the Holy Spirit is in you you do not want to commit sin, if you do, you are letting your old self to dominate your spirit. We are walking in the Spirit of God. God already won. Do not let Satan defeat you (on going Spiritual warfare) that is why let every thought to be with God 2 Corinthians 10:5. I came back to fulfill with the help of the Holy Spirit to ask that you trust only Jesus and not yourself here on earth. Let Jesus do the rest. It is indeed true OSAS.Sealed is sealed.You reap what you sow on earth. Peace&joy to ALL.

Earl Bowman's comment on 2020-09-20 17:28:09:

Sunday, by the gracing of the Holy Spirit, let us see if the Spirit can clarify the words in Psalms 8:3-6. First let us clarify whose words are spoken by the psalmist. II Samuel 23:1-2 Now these be the last words of David, David the son of Jesse said, and the man who was raised up on high, the anointed of the God of Jacob, and the sweet psalmist of Israel, said, (vs) 2 The spirit of the Lord (God) spake by me (David), and his (Gods) word was in my (Davids) tongue. God is speaking the words in the psalms not David. Psalms 8:3-6 When I (Jesus) consider thy (Gods) heavens (literal and symbolic of us), the work of thy (Gods) fingers, the moon (literal and symbolic of Jesus) and the stars (literal and symbolic of angels), which thou (God) hast ordained; (vs) 4 What is man (us) that thou (God) are mindful of him (us)? and the son of man (Jesus) that thou (God) visitest him (Jesus)? For thou (God) hast made him (Jesus in the flesh) a little lower than the angles (messengers of Spirit), and (God) has crowned him (Jesus) with glory and honour. Thou (God) madest him (Jesus) to have dominion over the works of thy (Gods) hands; and thou (God) hast put all things under his (Jesus) feet. Jesus has dominion over all things not us. May the Spirit grace you with his words.


Sunday Levinus Alaka's comment on 2020-09-20 09:12:49:

It is God's will for us to be thankful because He knows that it is good for us to have an attitude of thankfulness towards Him. When we have a thankful attitude and an attitude of appreciation for Him and what He does for us, it does not leave much room for ingratitude in our lives.In reading Psalm 8:3-6, we can see ourselves in perspective to God's creation:When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man, that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet. God has given us-humanity-dominion over the things that He has created. And beyond that, out of all humanity, we have been given a tremendous responsibility to develop righteous character and have the potential of living eternally in His Kingdom. This thought alone should help us to be thankful each day.

You will find strength to do the impossible when you give thanks


Dejvi Kadivnik's comment on 2016-03-13 00:44:04:

Praying touches God's heart - He will respond if we are truthfull and commited, but it may take some or relativelly long time, according to His will.Prayer should also be complemented with thanksgiving - we most likely do not know what we have until we loose it: peace, health, family, frends, job... There are so many people which are in much worse situations than we and would like to have it as good as we do , but we only look at those we see or assume have it better than we - those same people might think the same things about some other people having it better. We should remain content and steadfast in prayer and always giving thanks to God through Jesus Christ.

God has shown me favour, I call it grace cause grace to me is the greatest gift from such merciful and loving God.


Anthony's comment on 2014-08-13 18:59:09:

God has given me life and I shall always give praise and thanks to him and I will follow him forever.This what I see from 1 Thessalonians 5 18.


bosede adelakun ojerinde's comment on 2014-07-10 13:57:05:

Thanksgiving is a key to move the hand of God to favour us


Cecilia's comment on 2013-12-16 11:22:36:

This is amazing, god is wonderful. I urge you all who read this, all of you who feel sad, lonely, unhappy, disappointed, all of you who have lost all of the hope u had in the Lord - praise him, even in the hard times. Even if he feels far away and that he has let you down, he is still there. <3

Pray, praise and thank him even more and you will see him and hear him the more you seek him. As my pastor said: You have to seek Him, before he seeks you. God bless you all. Amen
