Hi everyone! I'm new here. I found this site through searching about UR and I am so glad I did! It helps to be able to chat with people who have the same beliefs as I do rather than getting told over and over again that I am a heretic and deluded and deceived by the devil. :sigh:
I was wondering if there is anyone in here from NS Canada? It's extremely hard to find any UR believers around here, let me tell you!

Welcome, you can find much fellowship here.  One of our moderators, Cardinal, made a point one time, that she believed perhaps that God has us spread out for a purpose.  As He begins to bring others in, and uses us to do so, it would make sense that we were strategically placed  :bigGrin:.  We'll see, in the meantime, enjoy your time here. 

God's blessing, James.

Glad you enjoyed Nova Scotia onlytruth! It's a beautiful province, that's for sure. :) Hope to make it out west at some point, never been yet.

That's a really good point James, thanks for the reply. I guess it's just really bad right now because my husband really believes in eternal torment and he and the pastor of our church and his wife are all concerned that I am going to lead my daughter "astray". It's so hard to even talk about with people because they have had ET pounded into them their whole lives and they all think i'm deceived by the devil! It's to the point that I don't even want to mention it to anyone else because I feel so attacked and looked down upon by the ones who know my beliefs. It's like I so badly want to shout and proclaim the good news of God's love but when I try I just get the derision of "Christians". Anyway, didn't mean to have a venting session, it's just nice to talk to people who don't think i'm completely nuts for believing in UR!

God bless and thanks for the replies. :)

Yes, I hear you.  There have been times when I just sort of planted seeds, while still being able to say certain things that were on my heart.  Such as "Jesus is the Savior of the world, the end of the Lord is full of mercy", and then just let them decide what that means...and I could be like "there, I said it". :laughing7:

A couple of really powerful thoughts for me is, "if ET is true then God created this world and all the people in it, knowing that 95% of them wouldn't be saved in this lifetime", and "what saves people, believing in Jesus as Savior, or believing in God as Eternal Tormenter/that there is a forever burning hell?".  The Bible doesn't say "believe in hell and you shall be saved".  They're just not thinking straight - yet.

God always has a remnant, of which you are one right now.  The good news is, every knee will bow and all the nations will be blessed.  

Keep the faith.  James.

I literally just said that out loud to myself.
I think it's safe to assume we all know the feeling, sister!!

Welcome!
"I knelt to drink,
And knew that I was on the brink
Of endless joy. And everywhere
I turned I saw a wonder there."

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Welcome, Lomarah-

You may FEEL alone, but of course none of us is ever REALLY alone.    But I know what you mean.  I think most of us here do.
Think of it this way -- a dark sky, with stars like little dots spread out.  You are one of the dots in the dark sky.

Peace -
Anne

What a beautiful thought - I've never heard that analogy before. :smile:

I will never look at the night sky the same again.
That made me so happy!  :happy3:

Hello Lomarah

Do you know what I "say" to people about that? 

I remind them that Jesus died for "all" ........and if we believe that
HIS death is really the Grace and Truth that comes "after the law"
and we really believe that "He" IS THE NEW COVENANT, and it
does say that He will be given for a Covenant, then we know that
He is the saviour of all men, especially those that "believe." They
KNOW it! already! Unbelievers are waiting to know it.  And they
are waiting to show it.  I do not believe that 'any' man first gave
to HIM and He recompensed them.  I believe it is GRACE all the WAY.
I do not understand His timeline for people, but I believe His
Righteousness is sufficient. His Work is sufficient.  His blood is
LIFE.  I am so glad I know now.

   Thanks Anne,

  Sis this  reminded me of a poem a friend of mine wrote years ago 
   I remember this much of it after all these years!!


  Pin holes in the floor of heaven
  are the stars in the darkest  night
    they are the  little stars  filled with Jesus Light
 
Exd 32:13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom you sware by thine own self, and said unto them,

I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven,

 and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit [it] for ever.

  welcome sis Lomarah      like your name !   what does your name mean sis   ? :HeartThrob:

Thanks Redletter. I am also quite confused about God's timeline but I know that His timing is always perfect and for a reason. I know it will all make sense in the end!
Rosered my name means "not bitter" in Hebrew. I took Hebrew in university and I loved it, it is a beautiful language. (My real name is Holly though.) :)

Cool, I live in Beaverbank right now, not far from Rock Church at all! I am originally from Yarmouth though. Yay a fellow URer from home!  :smile: Are you still in NS?

Welcome lomarah!

I'm a fellow Canuck, located in Ontario, but born and raised in Sask.

I know how you feel about feeling alone.  I've talked with my wife about this briefly, but she didn't get it right away.  So I've basically left it for about a year now.  Occasionally she'll ask me something about it, and I'll just explain a little bit.  So I have hope she is coming around...
