I'm Edgar from the Philippines. I'd like to invite you to read my article at www.bibleone.net/TheMillennium.htm. The millennium doctrine is vital for Christians to understand. It has to do with the salvation of the soul, not spirit (1 Pet. 1:9; James 1:21; Heb. 10:39; Matt. 16:24-28). I'd appreciate a comment, but you are not obligated.
I just read your posting asking me if I'd lived in Federal Way. Yes that is me. We're doing a project in Korea so I'm working here.
I can't seem to place you. I'm 57 so show some mercy on this old guy and remind me of our shared past.
Good to hear from you.
I think you have it all over me. Why I can't remember a thing. Even after your post.
OK then I hope it must have been gone well. I don't post to that other site anymore. It was too hard to follow. I do best face to face. Hard to pick up on a person spirit over the internet.
Where do you live?
Just checked the site again (don't have much time to do so), so here's my reply to your question about the ekklesia we visited in CT: They meet in the home of this wonderful older couple who definitely have the gift of hospitality...they have 2 guest rooms (one is called "the prophet's room!) and anyone is always welcome to stay there any time, it's just great to see that someone actually takes hospitality seriously, according to scripture. (By the way...we do, too, so if you are ever in the Adirondacks, stop by...and bring your camping gear) Anyways, they just meet with whoever shows up that Saturday, there is the agape meal, worship, encouragement etc., pretty much what you could expect from a 1.Cor.14 meeting. Each time it's different, they really try to let the Spirit do the leading, no one is "in charge", the elders stay in the background. So if you ever are in the greater Springfield, MA area, you definitely should stop by, it's worth a visit by our humble judgment.Maranatha. Hardy & Katrine
Dear Marshall Diakon
Thank you so much for your email. Its good to hear from you. I dont know this man named Alphonce. I live in a small town called Webuye, in the western part of Kenya. I am part of the house church network here.
We visit people in homes, at works, and also hotels then share to one another about God's love and relationship.
How about you and how are you doing? what about your family?
I and my brothers and sisters in the house church network here in kenya are praying that God will open away for you to come here in kenya so that we may have time together for you to share with us. How do you see it?
Yes Marshall, I just moved to NC from Hayden, ID. Did I know you when I was there? If so, I apologize as I don't recall the name. Let me know if we met and why you were wondering if I was the same Doug Spencer from Idaho. I look forward to hearing from you.
Your friend can contact me about the Ridgefield group we will be meeting 12/7 @ 1pm and 21/12. After that we shall see what we shall do. I am also looking to start a house ministry with anyone willing to open their home and invit their friends and neighbors in saved or unsaved.
Pleasant wisdom? Thank you for the compliment. When we left the IC pastorate 14 years ago, it was not a smooth separation. We experienced much pain and accusation in the process as Tim's father is a pastor, 40 years in ministry and we were copastoring with him. Several of the church wanted to go with us into house church and so we were labeled church splitters and black listed not only in our denomination but also in our region of the country. It has also been a grueling process of detoxing from institutionalism for Tim who continues to claim that IC is in his DNA although he has been "dry" for all these years now. We learned much in the transition and in working with people who are still IC. I am a coach/counselor in post deliverance care and Tim is an author and gives semiars on deliverance ministry. We work with alot of people and so you learn alot about people and their "patterns."
And no I didn't make the blanket. Actually, we are visiting a friend in northern Ohio and at a Cowboy Action Shooting compeititon. It was really cold that day so I wrapped up in a blanket besides my buckskins. When I joined this site, I just posted whatever pic I could find. It is a conversation piece.
With my time in counseling ministry, I don't sew professionally anymore. I mostly sew for family and with 14 grandchildren for birthdays and now Christmas, that is plenty enough. Although, I would like to design a line of childrens clothing with a western flair to sell through an online boutique and ebay.
I find your post on my wall interesting. We didn't start our house church in Idaho until February of 2007 and my phone number has remained the same for several years and in fact remains the same today. I know I posted our house church info on two sites, but they had links to my email address, which also has stayed the same for several years. Without trying to be offensive, I am just curious, given the fact that my contact info has stayed the same, why you wanted to know if I was the same Doug Spencer in Hayden Lake, Idaho? If you were trying to reach me it wouldn't make any sense why you couldn't since my phone number and email address have not changed. Anyway, let me know why you were inquiring about my former place of residence so we can get this mystery cleared up. Mahalo (that's Hawaiian for "thank you").
I hope you're doing well. I love being part of our simple church/house church. I'm so thankful that the Lord led me to the little group we have. I've been blessed by the fellowship, and I'm excited to see what the Lord has in store for us.
Blessings to you,
