Came across this last night and thought it interesting. Russian Orthodox Church goers getting dunked in freezing water.

I've seen Polar Bear Club members doing this but never knew it was a church thing.

It is not good for us only to experience good.  We would have little appreciation for God's goodness without the contrast of evil.  We are to possess the qualities of our spiritual parents and we must learn some evils from experience.  Its the difference between theories and the way the world actually works.  You can learn some evil from a book but with experience you really understand.  God will do away with evil when it no longer serves its needed purpose.  If there was a way to make this all seem fair, God would do it!  I think the way he does things is for the greatest possible good.  So I encourage everyone to be in Christ if possible.  This is a once in eternity chance to be put in charge of some evil and save all of humanity into the Royal family!

Mat 24:13  But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

I understand that but what I don't like is when your children or grandchildren have to endure evil.

Any parent of grandparent of a small child would endure their suffering for them if we could. I'm trying, but it doesn't seem fair.

I have three young grandaughters myself. They aren't suffering at this time, in fact they have lived quiet charmed lives,  but I often think how things could change at any moment. I honestly don't know how I would deal if they were to suffer evil. I can only hope if things were to change, I would rely on God for the strenghth and understanding to hold firm in my faith.  I really don't even like to think about it.

From the LOF, pt.15.  This gives me great comfort in knowing that.

God presently is working - operating all that exists and that includes the will of all mankind.
1 Co.12:6 ,,,God which (operates ) all in all.

Prob.16:1
The preparation of the heart in man and the answer of the tongue, is from the Lord.

No one can make one statement out of his mouth unless it was first preordained ,
foreknown, and approved of by God.

I can now look at people in a different light, especially my own children and grandchildren as they
themselves are in prison which puts me in prison . It strips me of the fabled power I believed I had
and control over their lives. It shuts me up and teaches me to rely solely on God.

John 5:19 & 15:5
The son of man can do nothing of Himself.
,,,,without me ( Jesus) ye ( all of you) can do nothing.

All is of God- God does not allow anything to happen . God is the ultimate cause
of all things that happen.

Isa. 45:6-7
That they may know from the rising of the sun and from the west, that there is none beside me
I am the Lord and there is none else. I form the light and create darkness : I make peace (good)
and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

John  8:28
Then said Jesus unto them ,” when ye have lifted up the son of man, then shall ye know that I am He
and that I do nothing of myself, but as my Father has taught me, I speak these things.
John 12:49
For I have not spoken of myself, but the Father which sent me. He gave me commandment what I should say , and what I should speak.

Not only did the Father do the speaking through His son , but He also performed all of the works as
well.

John 14:10
Believe you not that I am in the Father ,and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you
I speak not of myself, but the Father that dwells in me. He does the works.
John 14:24
He that loves ME not ,keeps not MY sayings; and the word which ye hear is NOT MINE, but the Fathers
which sent me.

Quote from Ray.

Jesus Christ was very content to have His Father live in Him, and do good works and deeds
in Him. But the very thought that God will and does do the same in us is absolutely repulsive
to most Christians.
“ Why we would be little more than robots “ they retort.Jesus didn’t feel like a robot, I don’t feel  like
a robot and none of my likeminded , believing friends feel like robots.

Amen to all that brothers and sisters. Keep the unity of the Spirit and may Gods grace and mercy ,
peace and love sustain us and drop us to our knees in total submission to Our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ.

In Christ, Pamela💕

Rolihlahla,

There were a couple of things that when I was doing them I felt better mentally and physically during those 6 years. Eating a whole foods diet, light exercise, and make sure your not deficient in any vitamin. I was low in vitamin D because of that I felt pain and I was depressed. I also had very low Iron that caused a lot of hair loss, pain, drowsiness and depression. That just made my situation worse. When I got those vitimans at the level they needed to be I felt better. It didnt take away the situation but I was coping better. This may not apply to you, but I just wanted to share the things that made a big differance in my situation.

Hi Rolihlahla,

I was in a spiritual prison for 6 years, the last 4 years were the worst. I didn't know what was going on. Two years in it I was listening to an audio of Ray and he said somthing about being in a spiritual prison. Right then I knew that was what was happening to me. God let me know I just had to endure. I didn't know when it was going to end I thought it could be a couple more years or 20 years. Just this past year I have felt a release. I can see what God has been doing and I've experienced  changes being made in my life. I've never been in this place with Jesus before and its amazing. I know there is more hard times ahead because were constantly growing in Jesus.

That is how I feel now: don't know what is going on.
I'm learning to be content and accept the situation as it currently is now.

I'd say my body of flesh is still in prison. I fight every day. I win a lot of victories thanks to God's will and keep on fighting so that the old man stays, if possible, locked in prison.
I enjoy my freedom in Christ everyday but i know prison is not far if I take other paths than the path Jesus draws for me. I work hard to watch out, to not fall asleep. It is a real fight.

We all know that it is only our carnality that finds itself imprisoned. Our body of flesh which dwells into carnal thoughts and desires, fighting constantly against the Spirit of God. Lust of the flesh, lust of the eye, pride of life as Ray often reminds us.

God's children are definitely not in prison, never, they're free, always, the cross has made it once and for all. But the flesh...still howling, and crying, and lamentating, and needing, and wanting worldly things...locked up into its own cell of self-righteousness, self-esteem, self-whatever and never doing anything « to will and to act in order to fulfill His [GOD's] good purpose » (Philippians 2:13) but rather turning itself to humans (terrestrial, demonic) methods and doctrines and deeds.

Flesh never realizes that it's in prison. It knows nothing about joy and peace and what could be freedom. It knows only about sadness, darkness is ignorance.
When we realize we're in prison, then that's exactly when the new guy in us, God's child, wakes finally up, desperatly trying to get himself out of this miserable body of flesh, saying "hey wait! This is not a godly life we're in! i want to live the life of Jesus!". It is a real fight.
« For the flesh desires what is contrary to the spirit, and the spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other » (Galatians 5:17)

Prison becomes a reality only when the light of Jesus comes to enlighten everything around us and shows us that all the time we were in the dark, we discover the black surrounding walls of this prison we were in, how ugly and cold it is, how uncomfortable, how sad. It takes time. Like when you have to get use to the sudden light surrounding just to be able to see, to adjust your vision of life, to accept it. We've been in the dark for so long, so we wink a little, glance a little, cry a little, but tears are good, they are part of the process, the eye is washing itself from all the dust and beams it's filled. It's not sadness of the flesh, it's cleansing.

Imprisonment seems too long of a time. It hurts, it burns the cornea, and as long as tears keep on flowing we can't see much in the blurring, but little by little our vision adjusts itself.
One day our eyes will be wide opened according to God's promise. One day we'll get out fully of this prison of flesh. God is spirit. God is love and...patience.  And I thank God for that.

Now let's keep on running away from this prison, till we win the race altogheter, Crown of life for the winners.Timothy 6:11 :
« But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses »

Joy and Peace of Christ be with you all.
