The God of Comfort.

O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
– Psalms 34

1 Praise ye the Lord. O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
– Psalms 106

28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
– Matthew 11

Of all relations and acquaintances God is one most trustworthy, reliable, and ever ready to hear our pleas. He will comfort, He will assure, and He will heal. He is the the Father to the fatherless, a friend to the lonely, and the rock to lean on in hard times.

But do not come to Him only for comfort. He came to do more than give us hope, but to save and save utterly.

18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
– Isaiah 1

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
– John 1

A Protestant Christian whose mission is to defend the Gospel, the fundamentals of the Faith, and to reach the lost for their salvation. The Icon that I'm using conveys multiple purposes of a Christian believer. The sword represents our mission to evangelize; not through force of arms, but through the truth of the word of God (Psalm 19:7-9). The shield represents our obligation to defend the truths of the scriptures and the confessions of the faith (1 Peter 3:15). Lastly, the wings represents the grace, love, gentleness, and care we must show and give to each other as brothers and sisters in the Lord, and everyone else around us - to the righteous and to the unrighteous - as God has loved us (Ephesians 2:2-3 & 1 John 4:19).

    1. I see that you’ve erased my comments on yours. You obviously did nor like what I have written to you about Hyper Dispensation, and about the Blood Moons. Maybe I was a bit too strong on you, but you should never let that be the reason for the removal of not just a message for you for your readers as well.

      If I’m right, you do not want to answer for it before God in heaven, for as a teacher, you will fall under greater condemnation (James 3:1).

      1. Please understand that when anyone responds to my blog, or to any other person’s blog. such a response is being shown to everyone who is a follower. Whenever I write an article, It is important that a response not overshadow the contents of the article. I write to provide truth. When someone write in response to my articles, I try to make sure that truth is not swayed in the direction of someone else’s reply. I left your comments on my site longer than what I normally do. I feel comfortable with the things that I write. My sources of information are well known, highly respected and educated in the subjects in which I use their expertise. I don’t have a lot of time to correspond to followers, except in reply to their comments, which I try to be brief, which is for a number of reasons.

      2. I understand that you do not want anything to subvert attention from the truths you’re trying to teach/present, and it is not my intention to disrupt learning. However, for me this is a normal part of discourse, as you will always have critics, dissenters, and scorners (Trolls).

        As for experts, every subject matter has experts for or against, but the question is are the subjects themselves true? Do they edify? has anything in relations to the Gospel? Or are they what Paul calls “False science, so-called” (1 Timothy 6:20)? And are those experts engage endlessly in trivialities such as genealogies (1 Timothy 1:4)?

        To me, studying eschatology is perfectly fine; if it is not, why then it is in scripture? But the study of comes at the expense of God (prayer, worship, bible reading and meditation); caring for your family, serving the church, participate in evangelism, and studying other, more important subject,, and if easily believe in theories, or given into controversies, then you’re too much into it. In your case, I suspect that you’re a Hyper Dispensationist.
