For example, “We prayed for my sister Debbie and she had cancer, and all of a sudden she didn’t have cancer anymore.” Every now and then, I don’t care where you are in Christianity, you will hear those. It’s called, What this guy did was there was this lady back in the 1970s named Catherine Kuhlman and she would do these healing services.
I’ve heard a few of them, but I was in very short supply of such stories and I hadn’t thought about it much. I went looking and I’ll te II you that one interesting book that I found along the way was by Richard Casdorph, who is a medical doctor. He followed her around and he documented what happened to these people.
The Septuagint renders it by aggelos which also has both significations.
The Latin version, however, distinguishes the divine or spirit-messenger from the human, rendering the original in the one case by angelus and in the other by legatus or more generally by nuntius .
I had always been taught that those miracles went away and they either don’t exist anymore, or at least never happen “on command.” And Bryan’s cutting to the chase; he’s like, “Well, I don’t see any reason why they shouldn’t.” And I knew he was right. He documented the “before” and the “after” and he did so with X-rays, medical reports, letters from doctors, all of that kind of stuff. I’ll tell you what some of the chapter names are: And he goes through, one by one, with X-rays, doctor’s reports and everything and says, “This guy had this before and it’s gone now.
Here’s the X-ray, here’s the letter from the doctor, and there it is.” This is not by any means the only such book, but they exist. Catholics will know what Fatima is (probably most Protestants won’t) but I think back somewhere around 1913, just before World War I, some children were playing and they had a vision of the Virgin Mary.
We mention it here because the words: "He that liveth for ever created all things together" (Ecclesiasticus 18:1) have been held to prove a simultaneous creation of all things; but it is generally conceded that "together" ( simul ) may here mean "equally", in the sense that all things were "alike" created.
They are spirits; the writer of the Epistle to the Hebrews says: "Are they not all ministering spirits, sent to minister to them who shall receive the inheritance of salvation ? It is as messengers that they most often figure in the Bible, but, as St. Gregory, expresses it: angelus est nomen officii ("angel is the name of the office") and expresses neither their essential nature nor their essential function, viz.: that of attendants upon God's throne in that court of heaven of which Daniel has left us a vivid picture: I behold till thrones were placed, and the Ancient of Days sat: His garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head like clean wool: His throne like flames of fire: the wheels of it like a burning fire.
Then she realized that she was still really struggling with serious temptations and doubts and hadn’t yet grown firm enough in her faith to meet the type of man she was looking for and be the right woman for . Keep your eyes open after you ask, He will deliver. Nothing compares to a woman who is confident in the fact that she was beautifully and perfectly made. This also gives the impression of a promiscuous woman, which is not what a man of Christ is looking for. He was 19, barely worked, didn’t have a car, wasn’t going to school, drank a ton, partied more, and looked like a punk hobo. Think about it – to face temptation, invest time, invest emotions and open your heart… It talks about how he targets beauty and women out of jealousy in the world today.This story starts with my brother Bryan, a tough-questions seminary student.He got a Masters degree in theology at a very conservative seminary where they work them real good, and he toed the line and he learned all the stuff that he’s supposed to learn, and he moved to China.Something so good, is so bad cause I’ve dedicated my life to Christ and my bf has chosen his own path. If you know someone who is in a committed relationship of which you do not approve, an excellent question to ask yourself—especially before venturing to offer any opinion on that relationship—is whether or not anyone but you gives a rolled-up church bulletin what you think of that relationship.Dear Christians who make a point of letting their Christian friends who are in serious relationships with non-Christians know that they think it’s wrong for a Christian to date or marry a non-Christian: If I ever meet you, I am going to beat you up. More importantly, does anyone actually you’re a Christian, and be quiet about it? Offering unsolicited critical opinions of others makes you a toxic gossip, which is one of the lowest things anyone can be.
