My neighbor Tom

My neighbor Tom

Postby sacredcowbasher on Tue May 22, 2018 5:25 pm

Brothers and sisters, my Christian neighbor Tom has become ill and is in hospice. He has had several strokes due to Aortic Valve problems as I understand it. He is about 68 years old and I am looking for God to touch him and raise him up out of his sick bed. It is possible that Tom may be ready to go home and may want to go home, I’m not sure. I know him pretty well, but he is a private sort of person. I have no doubt about his salvation, but I would like to see a healing miracle.

Father, I’m believing Tom should have more years to live a victorious life here on earth and work for the Kingdom. I’m asking You to raise him up and heal him and fill him with Your Holy Spirit, in Jesus’ name Father, Amen.
Gal 2: 14-19 But when I saw that they were not straightforward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter before them all, "If you, being a Jew, live in the manner of Gentiles and not as the Jews, why do you compel Gentiles to live as Jews? We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified. But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is Christ therefore a minister of sin? Certainly not! For if I build again those things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. For I through the law ( the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus ), died to the law ( the law of sin and death ) that I might live to God. Parenthetical remarks added are mine.

Praying for Tom!

:praying:
ειπεν αυτη ο ιησους εγω ειμι η αναστασις και η ζωη ο πιστευων εις εμε καν αποθανη ζησεται
. . . saying to her Jesus, I AM the resurrection and the life, the one believing into Me even dying shall live . . .

Praying for the will of God to be in agreement with, and for us to all agree in it continually. :praying:
The Wisest men have changed their Counsels and Resolves upon second thoughts, much more upon experience, and approaching evils not at first discovered. Rev. Herbert Croft, 1675

Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.

Find seven years of tribulation plainly stated in the Bible.

Thank you all for lifting Tom up before the Lord. The report I got from Tom’s wife today was not good. She said ‘he is declining’. But we know that if God wants Tom to live, then he will live. On my part I want him to live, but of course I can’t see what God sees, and I can’t know what He knows. I’m going to keep believing for a healing and that his life on earth is not over.

I also asked his wife, ‘Can Tom speak?’ She said, ‘very little and very confused’.

My apologies SS, I should have written much earlier. I meant to but I have very busy and very tired when I get home. Tom passed away Friday I think it was. I have tested his wife several times who is with her children near Baton Rouge. She has been comforted greatly by being with her kids and talking things through with them. She has a plan. She is going to sell her house two doors down from us and move close to her kids. We are, Lord willing, going to help her move and pack some things. We have a lot of boxes from selling on eBay.

If you would brothers and sisters, if the Lord puts it on your heart, pray for Mimi. Her whole life has changed in many ways. Pray that things go well with the selling of her house and the either the buying of another or renting a good place. Pray that her relationship with Jesus remains strong and that she rests in Him. Again, I’m sorry for not updating.
