Introduction
« on: January 10, 2010, 11:40:41 AM »

Hi all, greetings from sunny south africa!
im delighted to see that there are quite a few of us south africans being 'drawn' to bibletruths.com.
Anyhoo, I have been a christian for just about all of my 32 year old life ,but have only known the Gospel for the last 3 years,since i visited bibletruths.com.!(humbled)
Ironically, the very same friend of mine,that pointed me to this site does,nt get it!well actually he,s afraid to read it all.
Its amazing how God chooses whom He wills.
I have never read and studied my bible like i have since learning these marvelous truths 3 years ago.
I cannot even begin to describe how
these truths that Ray teaches has liberated me!
Cant wait for new posts from Ray on a daily basis..
Looking forward to mingling with everyone here!

Hi vinicle,

Welcome to the forum.

I agree, the feeling of liberation from learning the Truth is amazing.

Thanks for the warm welcome.
It has been a somewhat lonely road since God opened my heart to the truth,due to fact that virtually everyone im close to, subscribes to the doctrines of the church and is inlove with it.
I have lost close family members since 2004; my dad 2004,my grandmother 2005,my granddad 2006,my sister(37 lung cancer) 2007,a near fatal car accident 2008 and the death of my other sister(35) 4 months ago who fell ill 2months after the birth of a baby boy..
If it wasnt for the Truth of God that i learnt here, i think would have 'cursed God and died'.
My favourite chapter in the bible is Romans 8, especially verse 18:' For i reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared to the glory which shall be revealed in us'
im saddened by Rays state of health but encouraged at the same time by his perseverance and faith in God.
Grace and peace in Christ Jesus,
Devine

Welcome to the forum Vinicle!  I am humbled by the trials you have been going through. I too, am going through various trials. Just, like you I am blessed to know the truth or I may have given up on God. God never ceases to amaze me how he brings people to the forum. Being here is just like finding you are finally home.
Looking forward to hearing more from you. My heart goes out to you and your faith touches my heart so.
In His Love,

Well Paul calls his afflictions 'light' ! and the glory 'burdensome' so there,s a real lesson for us all.
Im definately encouraged reading everyones post and alot of my questions have answered since ive also been a lurker for 3 years now.

Welcome, Vinicle.  It's so good to have you posting after having been reading and 'lurking' for so long.  I hope we can continue to be of mutual blessing together.

Hello Vinicle

I am in Magaliesburg in South Africa. I find it so encouraging that former “lurkers”  and those who are familiar with Ray’s teachings are coming into the Forum.

Welcome to you!

Now that you have crossed the threshold, I wish you a long and happy stay!

Thanks for the welcome Arc,
i live about 10 minutes drive from Johannesburg city, in Rewlatch south of the city.
Im familiar with Magaliesburg.
Great to meet someone from south africa who undersands these things.!
Im sure it took a while for these truths to be engraved in all our hearts.
I,ll be visiting the forum as often as i can.
Blessings,
