    Whatever state the believer is called to experience, it will be one of growing in trust & thanksgiving in Christ. All of which is gifted from God.

    My father was afflicted by Alzheimer's which caused not so much a struggle of soul, but one of physical memory. He, being aware of the expected loss of recall, wrote copious notes to himself of things that mattered most.

    Might I recommend the same to you, plus perhaps making an audio recording in your own voice, of your present witness and standing in faith and trust in Jesus Christ, to have on hand for replay, encouragement, and stimulation of heart & mind when and if needed in future days.

    You are in my prayers.

    Counting, counting, counting...counting days since you were saved, now counting days since your bad news of losing your mind. I tried to speak to you about this but you were too busy condemning me. Maybe the best thing that can happen to someone is forgetting what they think they know.
    Oh how I love the Word of God!

    Do not just read the word do it.

    This message is hidden because God's Truth is on your ignore list.
    I know Him, correctly, as Messiah whom you call Christ. Yah Shua whom you call Jesus. Messianists who you call Christians.

    "Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm".

    I refuse, point blank, to speak peace to the unregenerate, hypocrites, religious dogma lovers and those that oppose the following statement:
    A regenerate man trusts in the evangelism of salvation conditioned on the atoning blood and imputed justness of Messiah alone.
    If you are fully persuaded, by experience, of this delightful, beautiful and life giving doctrine then I love you as a brother.

    Anyone who thinks that salvation is conditioned on anything a man thinks, does or says is atheist. I cannot and will not speak peace to him or her.

    I don't make statements online that I wouldn't repeat in front of my Maker, my grandmother or a judge.

    “I know O Yah Veh that Thy judgements are just and that Thou in trustworthiness hast afflicted me”. 119:75

    The afflicting work of Yah Veh Elohim separates us* from our sin, weans us from the world and brings us nearer to Himself And so I will kiss His afflicting rod.

    us* the regenerate and repentant sinners that are in the process being sanctified.

    As a young boy, I had the inevitable ability to get under my mother's feet. She in turn had the ability to come up with a continual stream of suggestions to get me out of the way.
    One day when I was about 7 years of age she suggested that I go out to the lawn and look for a four leaf clover. She explained that finding one was deemed lucky and that it was said that once found the recipient would be granted one wish.
    This last piece of information set me in motion and I was soon on my knees on the lush lawn at the side of the house diligently seeking the means of my wish.
    At first, the dogs wanted to help or simply thought this was some new game. i reacted to them in the same way my mother had reacted to me and threw a ball.
    Then it hit me, not the ball, but the thought, what would I wish for? Back into the house I went to get confirmation that it would only be one wish and that the term ‘one wish’ was non negotiable.
    I soon found myself back on my knees, that were now green knees, but my enthusiasm for finding the clover had been undermined by my trying to decide what I would wish for.
    Try as I might I could not come to a satisfactory conclusion as there were so many desires that this young boy had.

    I didn’t find a four leaf clover until I was much, much older and had completely given up on luck, whether good or bad.

    A few days ago this four leave clover episode was brought to mind and I immediately knew what my wish would be. I would ask that I be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. The effects of which diagnosis are beyond my wildest dreams and imaginations.

    To the praise of the glory of His wisdom, amen.

    Ever since the day of my conversion I was introduced to the joy of gratefulness. Ever since my diagnosis, I have discovered depths of gratefulness and heights of joy I didn't imagine were possible.

    I’ve been reading some posts on a forum for Alzheimer’s. The list I’ve made is in no way exhaustive but is just a taste of the reactions I’m witnessing in peoples posts. The most obvious statement is “suffering” with Alzheimer’s and I’m opposed to this description as I am blessed with Alzheimer’s.

    Fear
    anxiety
    dread
    so-called depression
    annoyance
    hate
    confusion on a number of levels
    misery
    hopelessness
    loneliness
    financial worries
    denial
    anguish
    foreboding
    pride

    All these are enemies of peace and comfort. In the first 36 hours after my diagnosis, I had a few brief spiritual visits that made attempts to steal my peace by the inducement of a number of these temptations. The words, “resist him and he will flee” came immediately to mind and worked wonders.

    I began to look back to the years before I was converted and could only imagine how I would have reacted in the flesh. The anger would have been frightening for me as well as anyone I came into contact with. My self-pity would have been sufficient to drown me.

    I am now six months into my diagnosis. The most obvious and exceedingly wonderful blessing is that the things of the world no longer take up RAM in my mind.

    Your faith is so strong and is like that of Enoch. The Bible saids that Enoch walk 300 years faithfully with God. (Genesis 5:22)

    "Enoch lived a total of 365 years. Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away." (Genesis 5:23)

    Pray for me that my faith grows or exceeds that of yours and Enoch's. God bless you!

    I found it far easier to cope with the earlier posts in which I was called a liar a hypocrite or self-justifying than reading your post. The reason being is that your words could well plant and feed pride. This is an observation and not a rebuke. The accusative posts are in fact a blessing.

    Are you sure you want your faith to grow and be strengthened? Because when the prayer is answered your life may well begin to fall apart.
    Are you sure that what faith you have and live by is the genuine gift? It's impossible to strengthen a muscle you don't have.

    Each and every blessing, in Him, who is forever to be praised.

    Well that's your business. And does other people opinions matter. Or do they? And if you are what they say. It doesn't matter to me either. And if you are in fact what they say no worries. The Lord will take of that since he knows what's in everyone's heart.

    The reason being is that your words could well plant and feed pride. This is an observation and not a rebuke. The accusative posts are in fact a blessing.
    Your observation isn't important. But thank you anyway. Again, pride in my heart only the Lord could tell. Right?

    Are you sure you want your faith to grow and be strengthened? Because when the prayer is answered your life may well begin to fall apart.
    My life fell apart 10 years ago when all my suffering brought me to my knees to the Lord Jesus Christ. Lol



    Are you sure that what faith you have and live by is the genuine gift? It's impossible to strengthen a muscle you don't have.

    Each and every blessing, in Him, who is forever to be praised.
    I'm certain. Please Lord Jesus. Come!
