FOOF Meeting 2/8/16

We continue with the “Faith of History” series with William Federer.  The subject will be “The Battle of Lepanto in 1571.”   In the 2nd hour,  we will begin “DNA by Design” (part 1) from the True U Series,  “Does God Exist?”  People are welcome to come at 6:30 PM to chat and discuss whatever is on their mind.

It was decided by the group that we will follow Franklin Graham on his Decision America Tour 2016 in which he plans to travel to all 50 states to “preach the Gospel and to challenge believers to take a stand and take action.”  Please pray for Mr. Graham for safe travels and as he delivers his message that people cry out and turn back to God.  A tentative date for October 6, 2016, has been set for Franklin Graham to visit Ohio.  The location is yet to be determined.

FOOF Meeting 2/1/16

After a wonderful presentation by Linda Manley last week, we will return to watching  “Faith of History” series with William Federer in which he talks about the early American encounters with Muslim Pirates.  In the second hour,  we will watch a session from the True U Series,  “Does God Exist?”

As always, the group meets at 7:00 p.m.  For those that like to come early, several of us arrive to set-up by 6:30 p.m.

FOOF Meeting 1/24/16

On Monday, January 25, 2016, we are privileged to have Linda Manley, Emergency Nurse Practitioner,  talk with us about her work experiences and research in the area of near-death experiences.    The title of her talk is:

Moments of Grace: Exploring Near-Death and Related Experiences
The near-death experience (NDE) is a fascinating subject of global interest and the source of many debates, controversies and headlines throughout the world. NDEs are profound psychological events, with transcendental and mystical elements, that occur to some people when under intense physiologic or psychological stress.  In the US, it is estimated 800 people experience an NDE every day. There is little or no formal education on this topic in the professional world despite the fact that NDEs have significant short and long-term effects for experiencers.
This presentation will synthesize 30 years of evidence-based research on NDEs and identify triggers, common elements, and after effects along with helpful advice for family and friends. In addition, a discussion of related phenomenon, including near-death awareness and after death communications will be included, with many personal stories.

A brief background on Ms. Manley:
Ms. Manley’s 35-year career includes service in the Army Nurse Corp, 25 years as a flight nurse in Central Ohio, and 13 years as an emergency nurse practitioner. Her interest in NDEs began when a teenager survived a cardiac arrest and vividly described aspects of his resuscitation he could not have known. Ms. Manley has studied near-death experiences extensively and published in a professional journal. What she has learned about this subject fundamentally altered her viewpoint on death. With a personal goal of increasing awareness among health care professionals, Ms. Manley has spoken to over 10,000 people around the country about near-death and related experiences.  In addition to her interest in this topic, she has also advocated for stronger child abuse legislation in the State of Ohio and, in 2000, this effort led to Ohio House Bill 162 (Homicide by Child Abuse).

GOD’s Own Fool, Part 2

I sent a text to all my kids that read: “You need to get a mask on before you fly anywhere. I swear this Ebola thing is orchestrated… I’d appreciate it if you don’t breathe on me for 25 days!!!”

I figure the NSA has already intercepted it and turned on my beeper…

Dear Lord, I’ve turned into a conspiracy theorist…!

My yearly jaunt through the Bible has me currently reading Jeremiah and Isaiah at the same time. I love this yearly routine! As the nights get longer and the days get colder, my old prophet friends keep me cheered up with scathing warnings to the distracted population, who are caught up in the revelry and self-indulgence of their culture! If only you knew what I was talking about, and could understand the irony of the joke!

My eldest daughter saw me dedicate my life to Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God of the universe. She saw the difference it made in my life, as Jesus systematically undid every knot I had ever made in my life. Jesus set me free of every chain, every fear, every sin, every heart break… And then Jesus satisfied me with himself. Nothing else added. Focus on Jesus – eternal perspective.

A pastor once told me that I had spent so much time isolated with Jesus that my intensity was a beacon – another told me to keep my face veiled so I wouldn’t frighten people. My best friend pastor told me that my crazed sense of humor took him by surprise when we first met; but after getting to know me he determined that I was the sanest person he knew. I thought Jesus talked to everyone…(?)

Oh, but he does! Not everyone listens!

As Ebola patients pour out of the Dark Continent in desperate attempts to survive the virus that kills 90% of its victims, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said the Ebola outbreak is unlike anything since the AIDS epidemic,[1] which didn’t prove to be an effective enough killer for the globalist eugenics program.[2] Lab weaponized Ebola was perfected through a United Nations testing program in western Africa.[3] Obama has given the go ahead to keep U.S. southern borders and flights from infected countries open – meaning American citizens are about to be exposed to a horrible killing disease, that may or may not be air borne.[4] Meanwhile, customs agents complain of improper training or equipment to deal with potentially infected passengers;[5] Marine Corps drills are focused on pandemic preparations;[6] airplane cabin cleaners are picketing outside LaGuardia Airport over health and safety issues;[7] sick nurses are popping up all over the planet;[8] and radio and news reports are over the top with sensationalism.[9] It all screams of staged orchestration.

Don’t forget the executive order Obama signed in early August. It orders officials to detain Americans with any signs of ‘Respiratory Illnesses.’ [10]  Although Ebola was listed on the original executive order signed by Bush, Obama’s amendment ensures that Americans who merely show signs of respiratory illness, with the exception of influenza, can be forcibly detained by medical authorities. Who knew?!

Think about it. Throughout history, “leaders” have enacted genocide in order to gain power. It is nothing new, so is therefore possible. The last vestiges of western culture are under attack, disguised as politically correct propaganda, a vendetta against founding American concepts, and a mocking curse for all things Christian and/or Jewish. Anyone who spends time reading the Bible is not surprised.

I hope your family “go to” plans are securely in place.

Go on and say what you are thinking, “You are crazy, lady!” Perhaps so – but the grim reaper of pestilence isn’t nearly as friendly.

The Rest of the World Already Knows

And so you became a model to all the believers… The Lord’s message rang out… your faith in God has become known everywhere… ~ 1 Thessalonians 1:7-8

Are we fighting for our kids’ and grandkids’ souls, as a shepherd would fight for a lamb? Amos 3:11-13

Have we any concept of the fiery furnace Daniel and his friends endured? Daniel 3

For those of you who have graduated from state run media to conservative radio personalities and Fox News – congratulations! Guess what?! It is time for your graduate degree!!

WND, Infowars, Drudge, Breitbart, The New American, New Zeal, BBC, and Russia Today will tell you what the rest of the globe already knows… The New World Order is already here!!! Satan already has the helm of not just our nation; he is operating openly all over the world. American citizens are the last to know…

No U.S. election is going to fix the corruption. We have crossed every political exit there was, barreling along at breakneck speed. Kingdoms have already been awarded to dark minions.

We must prepare now. The only thing that will be left standing against evil is the Body of Christ.

We are a city on a hill, a shining beacon of light for all mankind. We will be seen around the globe as we stand against the beast in the Holy name of Jesus the Christ, LORD of All, King of Kings, from everlasting to everlasting.

You, Lord Jesus, are savior and friend, Giver of Life, seen and unseen, Righteous and Other.

Help us believe. Help us see and comprehend. Our hearts beat because you animate us.

Pour your Holy Spirit out on your church around the world. Remove the wolves from among the sheep. Convict our hearts of our great national sins, our great apathy, our mocking hearts and minds. Pierce your people with your presence. Humiliate our pride and rebellion. Convict us, O Lord, so that we might repent at the foot of your cross, embracing the horror of our own lack of personal responsibility and duty, according to the Word you so graciously provided for us.

Weep and mourn and sit in sack cloth and ashes. Sit in silence waiting for judgment. We are guilty. Our eyes are focused on everything other than Jesus. Our thoughts of GOD are small and powerless. We have assigned the name of Jesus a bit part in the historical poetry genre, placing you as an equal to all other gods. Rend our hearts. Scourge our conscience. Clear our minds.

Blow the trumpet… sound the alarm… Let all who live in the land tremble, for the day of the Lord is coming. It is close at hand. Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. ~ Joel 2:1, 13

Listen! The sound of trumpets in the heavens! Our GOD lives! Our GOD reigns! Our GOD is triumphant and true!

Father, thank you for offering your son in our place of guilt.

Jesus, thank you for choosing to die a horrible death to purchase us from darkness – that same shadow that prowls the earth looking for any shred of goodness to corrupt and twist and deceive. As we lay hold of your feet, Jesus, your strength and power lays hold of us.

Holy Spirit, thank you for dwelling among us – in our very hearts and minds. Your embrace, O Lord, is overwhelming. We hunger and thirst for you.

Fill us. Cleanse us. Renew us.

In the image of Jesus Christ, enable us to rise in unity, in the everlasting glory of His Holy Name, so that every knee bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is the Great I AM.

Humans are coming on highways, byways, bikes and boats. Humans have always migrated in search of water. Look at Detroit. Are they driving people out on purpose by not providing access to water? Play current events out to completion… This is how civilizations have collapsed since the beginning of time.

Tortured Lives

Featured Image:  Ellice Park, “Home Airing (Dirty) Laundry,” 2012

He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed. — 1 Peter 2:24

It has been a while since my spirit was humbled by a 20-something – Ellice Park did just that.  Her testimony of faith in the Holy Spirit’s leading and her willingness to sacrifice herself for Jesus left fresh wounds in the hard inner core of my soul – and I am grateful.  These are the stripes that heal and refocus…

Ellice’s Korean peninsula refugee stories are brutal and terrifying, reflecting the tyranny of total depravity.  She clearly expressed what happens when a culture eliminates the higher authority of God from entering the halls of governance.  The curses of Deuteronomy 28 are not a magic spell cast by an angry God upon humanity – they are the devastating consequences of humanity rejecting God.  The unthinkable has become reality for a whole ethnicity in the Far East, horrors beyond the imaginations of even the most vile gore flicks so popular with the youth of our culture.

When we silently sit by and accept the incremental assaults on our human liberties handed out by tyrannical governments, we can expect no less.  Agenda 21, Common Core Curriculum, Carbon Exchanges, the Patriot Act, Obamacare, the LGBT Agenda, Illegal Immigration, IRS Targeting, Federal Land Grabs – all these issues and more are enslaving our population just as surely as the evil in North Korea snuffs out every shred of good and truth that survives.  Out of control power murders without hesitation.

The corruption of US governmental authority is being systematically blurred by a complicit media and apathetic population.  Who even knows anymore that the ONLY job of any civil government is to protect the God-given rights of it’s citizens…?!

American citizens and Christians across the globe MUST stand against the darkness, or consign our progeny to the same tortures.  This era has the immense responsibility of upholding the foundations of the United States.  As Founding Father John Adams once cried,  “Posterity! you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom!  I hope you will make a good use of it.  If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it.” 

Praise the King of Kings for providing the way!  Praise Jesus for sending his disciples into the darkness!   Jesus was, indeed, pierced for our transgressions!  He died to set us free!  FREEDOM is calling the hearts and minds of every image bearer to action.  Resist the temptation to be silenced…

I will give them singleness of heart and action, so that they will always fear me and that all will then go well for them and for their children after them. — Jeremiah 32:39

Christ Prevails Over Economic Uncertainty

Monday, April 14, 2014
7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

Everyday we see and hear about the ever changing condition of our economy. Many are trying all the latest money making, saving, or sheltering programs that are nothing more than untested and unproven gimmicks that do nothing to point the way to financial stability.

Bob Ostrander will share his vision to bring clarity, confidence, and financial freedom through a biblically proven program that will provide a sound financial future no matter what happens to the economy. His life’s work is focused on helping believers effectively improve their stewardship of God’s resources so they have the ability to further support and advance God’s Kingdom.

Robert V.R. Ostrander has been engaged in the practice of financial planning for almost 40 years. As one of the pioneers in this industry, Bob served as the founding president of the local society for the Institute of Certified Financial Planners (ICFP). Prior to this, he held the office of president for the Central Ohio International Association of Financial Planners (IAFP). Bob holds multiple financial industry licenses in addition to his Certified Financial Planner (CFP) designation. http://centerpointstewardship.com

Ellice Park on North Korean Refugees

Monday, April 7, 2014
7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

UALC – The Church at Mill Run, Room 2031 or 3002 (check lobby sign – room could change)   3500 Mill Run Drive, Hilliard, OH

One of our youngest FOOF members will be sharing her art ministry to North Korean refugees!  

Considering how our culture has shifted so much in the past 12 months towards open hostility for Christians, this is a must come event!!  

Ellice recently spent time in Asia ministering to refugees.  She will speak a bit and share a couple stories about life under the total tyranny of the brutal North Korean dictator, and the efforts of the Christian church there to flourish under oppression.  Maybe we can slip into the sanctuary so she can play the piano to do a small performance, and play a couple hymns and sing in Korean, while the rest of us sing in English !  

This summer, Ellice has been invited to minister to Korean-Chinese persons with displaced families and abandonment issues in China, as a visiting artist and art therapist.  

Ellice supports her ministry through donations and by selling art she designs, and asks that you consider supporting her.

She would love for us to visit her Facebook page to view her videos, where she has shared accounts of her grandmother’s escape.  Everything on her site is meant to be shared! Here are her links:
