When Will Christ Return
The Bible tells us that the Gospel of Jesus Christ must be preached to all nations or people in the earth, before He returns. There are still many who have not been reached. Consider what you can do to help by supporting missions work, Christian programming that broadcasts to other nations through television and internet, or if you are able and are called, to go and help spread the Gospel. I don't know about you, but I am ready for Him to come! May His Favor fall on you! :)

Can Christians Be Trusted
Wow. This is going to hurt a bit, but the truth is that the term "Christian" is thrown around very easily by many - both saved and unsaved. My best advice, is that you can only truly compare the Christian faith to Jesus Christ. I personally believe that if someone is using their Christianity to capitalize in business, then they are not honoring God. God says that you shall know them by their "fruit", meaning their actions. I liken someone using Christianity to advertise or gain business, to those that used the temples for selling in Jesus' day - it angered God then, and I would venture to say it still doesn't bring Him honor today.

How To Come Back To God
I want so much to tell you that God is waiting for you! He will meet you right where you are! Just talk to Him. Read Luke 15: 11-32 and focus on this sentence: But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him, he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him" He was so excited he couldn't wait for his son, he had to run and meet him. You have brought His Kingdom so much joy by dancing in the Spirit. Do not let others cause you to stumble. Keep your eyes on him, and realize that the devil comes to steal, kill and destroy - don't let him succeed at causing you to lose another moment away from your Father who loves you so much. I pray that your relationship is restored even now.

Wife Spiritual Leader In House
It is not wrong to marry him, but consider what God wants for you. I would suggest praying and fasting specifically for direction. Get away & listen for the Holy Spirit. He will guide you with those "gut feelings" that often over-ridden by our own free-will. Speaking from experience, don't ignore the answer and do what you want to do,it will turn out badly. Always heed God's wisdom, even if it is difficult - you will happier than ever. Go visit a waterfall, or the ocean, or other great natural wonder. This often helps me grasp how much bigger our God is, and just how much He has for us. Study Jeremiah 29:11 and listen to the song by Avalon called The Dreams I Dream For You.

Got Saved And Left Me
First let me tell you not to listen to any judgment or criticism. God often takes those that have gone through extreme situations, and can use your experience to help others. Of course, you have to go through it first. You are not alone. God needs you to realize that He is your only source. He is the Father to the fatherless. He created you for such a time as this - so even though it is painful, if you will give your pain to Him and let go, He will restore you to a level of joy that you have never known. Allow this to happen, stay close to God by praying, worshiping, listening to music. Focus on YOU and your relationship with God. There is a great song called Arms Wide Open by Misty Edwards.

Black Woman Wants White Man
YES!! God wants to give you the desires of your heart! Don't fall victim to generalizations, but instead be still and wait on God. Keep your eyes on Him and work on building a close relationship with God. Talk to Him about what you want. Pray the prayer of Jabez! He will bless you, just be patient. It has been my experience that God does not work the way we do - going from point A to point B. Instead, you will be able to look back and see how intricately he weaves his plan, so that when it comes to fruition you will know it could have only occurred the way it did through His divine handi-work. He is an AMAZING God that loves us so much and truly cares about what we want. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path!

Recognize A False Prophet
Matthew 7:16 You will know them by their fruits (or what they produce/show you)

Galations 5:22-23 The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

God will honor you for being diligent in testing the spirits. Remember to prayer for his guidance and wisdom to be able to discern. If it is a big decision (marriage or business partner, etc) fasting would be a good idea to help you focus on what the Holy Spirit has to say.

God Feels Far Away
Sin is the only thing that can separate us from God. Bite the bullet - go into a closet or outside somewhere quiet and just get it out. Confess your sins, ask for forgiveness. Work on building your faith. In my walk over the years I've found that if I don't study his Word then I can even lose the ability to comprehend it. Faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. Go to a Christian Bookstore and getting a Bible-Study workbook on a topic that interests you to get you started again. Or there are Bible-Study programs here on this website and other websites that are free. Be encouraged! Use this as an opportunity to get excited about what God is doing! He is coming back very soon - the signs are all around us.

Paddle His Bare Bottom
Any father who really loves his son will discipline him. Proverbs chapter 10:13, But a rod is for the back of him who lacks understanding. If you have a child who demonstrates a lack of wisdom in living, get out a rod and use it on his backside. Proverbs 22:15, Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child, the rod of discipline will remove it far from him. You see, again corporal punishment is the consequence for disobedience which modifies behavior.Proverbs 23:13-14, Do not hold back discipline from the child, although you beat him with the rod he will not will deliver his soul from Sheol. You're not talking now about only saving his life, you're talking about saving his soul. Set a standard, live by and correct to that standard.

False Spirit Experience
I allowed false spirits to cause me to abandon my faith once in my life. I judged Christianity by people in the church instead of by Jesus' life. False spirits very often are in our churches. You must be prepared to discern the spirit of the person, through prayer and studying the Bible, so that you are equipped to recognize a false spirit. Do not be discouraged if you encounter someone who says they are of God, when their actions say otherwise. Do not hold Christianity accountable for the actions of these spirits. The devil comes to steal, kill and destroy and will clothe himself as anything to cause you to lose your walk with God. Keep praying, studying, and remember that the only perfect example of Christianity is Jesus and His life.
