Got any possible remedies for prostates that need too much elbow room. probably lemons...lol --aka on 11/22/14

AKA
Saw Palmetto works for me. I take it about an hour before going to bed with a digestive enzyme. After a few days you will discover for yourself, if it is just a placebo or a remedy.

I say this because those who are seen as the wisest men in this world, say it's a placebo. But I think you may discover those who are seen as the wise, really are the fools.

I understand that any anxiety can be a form of fear of death, because you are worrying about losing some part of your life.

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God, and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:6-7)

David...another brother of mine retired a chief petty officer and another was in the coast guard. Respect and understanding are different.

Because I am oriented to the ground and can relate to the air but cannot understand the sea...sailors I cannot understand.

I can see good men in all branches but I still don't understand squids.--aka

AKA
Most Marines make light of them, until they go to sea, and watch them work 16-18 hour days, 7 days a week on the flight deck.
Talk about fortitude and bravery!!

Trav...thanks and it sounds like a good read.
---aka on 12/4/14

Think you'll like it. Online it's pretty easy to find.
Looking up Euchre, you guys making me curious about it. Looks similar to a game my wife's family plays called Pitch. Like Euchres point system better. My 90 year old mother in law would give you guys a run for your money once she caught on. Ha.

David, then with all do respect to the members of the Corps, to my brother,and true brothers in Christ... Semper Fi. There are a few good men in every branch. I was going in as a linguist. The USMC and AF had a year waiting list for that MOS. For the Army, I got a bonus and shipped right away. And I was mostly stationed at interservice duty stations. I have six brothers and we covered every branch including the CG. I can see good men in all branches but I still don't understand squids.

Trav...thanks and it sounds like a good read.
---aka on 12/4/14


...permission to say Semper Fi? --aka

AKA
Absolutely!! Were brothers in Christ,... Always faithful.
And thank you for your service, Brother. As I recall, the Army has a few good men too.

As far as Euchre, I don't remember. I haven't played since I was a kid. Though I do remember, it was a very enjoyable, late night family affair.

Trav
Your welcome Brother. I will check out 2nd Esdras this weekend. Never heard of it, thanks for mentioning it, looks interesting.
---David on 12/4/14


noncanonical 2 Ezra. I haven't either yet.
I completed the summer training for the OTC program. I did well in training (structured), but my life was a very unstructured. I couldn't afford to stay in school, so I could not accept my commission. Then, joined army. So,I cannot claim to be a Marine. Nevertheless, my brother started in the Marines as E-1. There was one obstacle on the O course that he couldn't do. He wasn't going to graduate. I was stationed at Ft. Meade at the time. So, I came down and showed him how. He graduated and retired as a Major.

Hey have you two guys ever read 2nd Esdras?-Trav
Travis
No I haven't. You've made me curious though. Is it about an experience like ours?
AKA
I was wondering if you were a Jar Head. I was with the 5th Marines, and the HMS-268 squadron in Tustin Ca.
Semper Fi, brother!!
---David on 12/3/14

Experience like yours? Well, I'd say you guys are brothers with the man that wrote it. And you'll recognize and tag many things in it to the Old and to the New.
A couple of reasons why it is not included in todays KJV. Believe it was 1885 they started removing it from KJV.
David...thanks for your service, if haven't told you already. My family is, Sincerely grateful to both of you and any serviceman/woman here.

Several years ago I passed out in my home. I don't know how long I was out but I was in a peaceful place. I figured dying was sort of like that. I don't dred dying but don't let it hurt on the way.

Yes.
---aka on 12/1/14

Hey have you two guys ever read 2nd Esdras? Just read through most of it again to the 11th chapter.
If you haven't give it read. Say from the 4th chapter on.
Pretty interesting, many N.Testament connects.
Either way would like to hear your thoughts if you feel like taking a look. Think my Son and Daughter will want to graze it too.
---Trav on 12/2/14


Hello David A few years earlier than CA. I was at Camp Quantico in otc. Right before dawn, my eyes were opened but I could neither move my head nor body. Nor did I know where I was. The harder I thought the more lost I was. Then, I just stopped trying to figure it out. Then, things went dark and felt myself lift only seeing stars. Then, i flipped prostrate and I saw the earth. It looked like that blue marble image. Then, I started to descend. as I descended, I could see the western hemisphere. Then, I saw n. america, then the US,then VA,then Quantico, then quanset huts. Finally. I turned and was staring at the ceiling of the hut from my bed. I knew where I was then... As I dozed off, the DI told us in very colorful terms to S S and S.
---aka on 12/2/14


AKA
Both my experiences were much like Scrooges in A Christmas Carol. I was actually there, but then again, I wasn't. I've had many dreams, and these were definitely not dreams.

The first happened about a two years after I had walked away from God. When I came back from that one, I thanked God over and over again for the warning, and I was extremely happy to be back. God showed me what would happen if I didn't make him Lord.

The second one came seven years later, shortly after I had been born of God. In it, I believe God showed me the future, my reward for making him my Lord. Only this time, I wasn't happy to come back.

If everyone could see what's ahead, they wouldn't care about what they're leaving behind.

---David on 12/2/14


//AKA..ever had..a vision..// David

Yes. i was stationed in Monterey, CA in Oct. '89. i had a dream/vision that something deadly was growing of the shores of Monterey Bay. Then, I saw a huge tidal wave about to hit that way too big to escape. I woke seconds before it came crashing down. Three days later, the earthquake of '89 ripped through Monterey as it was the epicenter... leaving us stranded and devastated San Francisco and other areas.

This was before i really understood Jesus but at that point, i knew that God will save who he saves no matter what i or anybody else does. and, i realized there is a physical life/death that my flesh fears and a spiritual life/death that only God can control.
---aka on 12/1/14


Not having a fear of death does not make you fearless. I do not Skydive, Bungee, or Parasail because I have a fear of pain.

Why do folks fear death?
---David on 11/30/14

Why. We fear in leaving the known for the unknown. We fear sometimes because we haven't sought peace that only GOD can give. (David killed Goliath) was he fearless? Yes, being better equipped in his battle.
Skydiving, Ultralight aircraft, having tried both, ...was mind over consequences, with proven equipment and (prayer before lift off). Pain...won't happen if you've paid attention in class.
Was I afraid...yes, initially. Of forgetting some rule. It is the Brains way of keeping us in focus. Never experienced pain. (discomfort...once).

Do you think there is anything to fear after death?
---learner2 on 11/30/14


AKA
Have you ever had an experience like mine, a vision, whether joyful or terrifying?

I've had both. One terrifying, and the other being the one I have mentioned. The terrifying vision, came about 10 years before the one that made me look forward to being with the Lord.

In it, I waited along with millions of other believers for Jesus to return for us, as nuclear explosions were heading towards us. Guess, why I came back from that one, terrified.
---David on 12/1/14


David,

That is what I am saying in different words.

Most take comfort in their own take on eternal salvation. I have no fear in jesus' decisions either way after I die.

I do not follow christ to save me. I follow christ because he is the truth that will keep his father's promises.
---aka on 11/30/14


It is hard for me to believe there is a human that has no measure of fear for the physical death.--aka

AKA & Luke
Not having a fear of death does not make you fearless. I do not Skydive, Bungee, or Parasail because I have a fear of pain.

Why do folks fear death?
It's because they fear losing what they have in this world. That fear is there, because of unbelief.

If a believer, truly believes being with God is better than being in the world, wouldn't they look forward to being with God?
And if the only way of being with God, is through death (2 Corinthians 5:8), wouldn't the believer look forward to their death?

And if one looks forward to being with God, would they fear leaving this world?
---David on 11/30/14

David,

I really believe those scriptures have to do with life/death after physical death.

Because our flesh is in constant battle with our spirit, it is hard for me to believe but there is a human that has no measure of fear for the physical death.
---aka on 11/29/14


David, medications or no medications, a person will die when God calls him. It matter not how many drugs you take, it will be at the correct time that God has assigned for him or her. What I am afraid of is how I will die. I do not want to die in a car accident, or something falling on top of me, and not killing me right away. I do not want to suffer, but I have no choice in the matter. It will happen some way or another. Maybe just setting at home.
---Luke on 11/29/14


(John 8:36) If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Those who will be saved, have no fear of death, because Jesus has set them free from the fear of death.

(Hebrews 2:14-15) Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same, that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death that is, the devil- and deliver those who all their lifetime were subject to bondage through fear of death.

Men can lie to others, and say they have no fear of death, but can they lie to themselves?
---David on 11/29/14


most people fear death, even Christians. when I passed out in my home, I felt like that is how death would be. very peaceful. I have never felt such peace. what bothers me is not death but the pain of getting there.

//I will go to more natural remedy before I take a med, because of all the negative side effects they come with.//

David,

I'm with you. Believe it or not, a few years ago, my legs were hurting all the time and i could not sleep well because of them. i read in a health magazine that men, who sit at a desk all day, are much more likely to die of a heart attack, healthy or not.

so, i modified my work station to stand, and now, i my legs feel great, lowered bp and lost weight.


Got any possible remedies for prostates that need too much elbow room. probably lemons...lol
---aka on 11/22/14


no cancer but that lemon that they call a prostate gland is getting on my nerves.-aka

AKA
I agree, some people who do not fear death, do the "doctor's dance" for quality of life benefit or for the sake of family.

I'm not anti-med, but I will go to more natural remedy before I take a med, because of all the negative side effects they come with.

I use to take meds for heartburn, but I noticed when I did, I started having prostate problems. Now I take 1 Cayenne pepper capsules 3 X's a day.

It too has side effects, but with cayenne the side effects are lowering blood pressure and cleaning out the clogged arteries in my heart. I do this for quality of life.
---David on 11/22/14


Now look at all the crazy medical treatments..David
yeah. it seems like once you take this for that, it starts a slippery slide into more meds that keep skin alive but dullen the spirit.

no cancer but that lemon that they call a prostate gland is getting on my nerves. but it does make me call out to god more. :-) i do take one med. the good thing about this one is the meds are instantaneous and you know instantaneously. and it does not require further meds. i can live with/without it but it sure does help.

The fear of death..-David
be careful of this. paul had to choose and he gave both reasons. both were legitimate. there may be other reasons that one might want to add like quality of life for family while they are here.

Now look at all the crazy medical treatments believers endure to stay alive. They endure them, because they fear death. If they truly believed they would be with God when they die, shouldn't they welcome death?
---David on 11/21/14

Yeah, should. But, then we're healthy today. We've seen people pay for a few months, weeks, days to extend a breath.

Being a "man" weak in proportion, to as great as the pain might be, i am surely as susceptible as any. GOD give me that I may lack.
I pray that i / we can walk through the valley of the shadow..., fearless and happy to leave.

1Jn_2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
---Trav on 11/21/14


Kinda reminded me of your testimony on wealth.

Trav
Never really thought about it before, but they are similar.
I guess that's because the Fear of death and wealth are both tools, used by Satan, to keep us in the world.

When God puts his command in the mind of a believer, to buy $100 of groceries for a brother in need, it's very difficult for them, because their love of money is greater than the love they have for their brother.

Now look at all the crazy medical treatments believers endure to stay alive. They endure them, because they fear death. If they truly believed they would be with God when they die, shouldn't they welcome death?
The fear of death, makes them choose the worldly over the Godly.
---David on 11/21/14


Since I didn't see any of Heavens riches, I believe I was standing on the outside of this great wall.
---David on 11/20/14

One reason it rang true with me. We are all on the outside of the wall while we are here.
If this was the "Wall", might signify it is still being built? When they finish working on it...
Rev_21:17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

Know this doesn't apply to you now below. Seen it while searching "Wall". Kinda reminded me of your testimony on wealth.

Pro_18:11 The rich man's wealth is his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit.
---Trav on 11/20/14


"If you have no fear of death, what is your experience?"
The deliverance of Christ, as the burden removing, yoke destroying power of God within me. Which enabled me to both believe and embrace the truth of 1cor. 15:51-57 and the reality of what Father has accomplished through Jesus who has destroyed him that had the power of death, that is, the devil, and delivered those of us who through the fear of death were all our lifetime subject to that bondage.

Trav
The most amazing thing about the experience, was the fact that I didn't see any of Heavens riches,...Gold, expensive stones,... etc.

I believe I was shown the least place in Heaven, showing the least place to be thousands of times greater than the best we have on earth.

After the experience, I wondered about the source of the Joy I felt while I was there. Then I discovered the source of the light in (Revelation 21:23-24), it was the Light of God.

Since I didn't see any of Heavens riches, I believe I was standing on the outside of this great wall.

Rom 7:24-25 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
---Trav on 11/19/14


Here is my experience:
As I sat on my bed one morning, getting ready for work, I fell back onto the bed. And when I opened my eyes I was standing on what appeared to be a sidewalk next to a very large wall.

There appeared to be two angels working on the wall. They didn't look or speak to me, so I assume they didn't know I was there.
As I stood there, I experienced a Joy, a Joy that was millions of times greater than anything I had ever experienced before.

I stood there for just a few moments, and then I discovered, I was back in my bed. When I came back, I begged God to take my life so that I could return. And that was the day I lost my fear of death.

It was not what I saw, the light in Heaven was the source of my Joy.
