Testimony of Anne Irvine

Hello my name is Anne and thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ I have a testimony.
I was brought up in Belfast and my Mum and Dad were not saved, but they still sent me to Sunday school. I used to go with a friend. I can't really remember much about Sunday school, only that at harvest time the church was lovely with lots off flowers and fruit. From an early age I knew there was a God but I didn't know Him personnally. As a teenager growing up in the 70's it was a scarey place. I used to follow the crowd, drinking and going wild. I believe Gods hand was on me even then, because many times I could have been in danger but He delivered me. I was married at 19 and by the age of 30 I had three children. I worked in a bar as a waitress and also had a cleaning job. I was busy with life, but very lonely. I had friends, family a good husband and three lovely children but I was so lonely inside. One day a couple of Christian neighbours called to my door and they witnessed to me about the Lord. I listened to them but couldn't get the door closed quickly enough. For the next few weeks I was so miserable, (I know now I was under conviction off sin). One Sunday I went to a Church around the corner, I spoke to my neighbour who was there and asked her to call round to my home. We agreed to meet on Tuesday morning. Well from Sunday to Monday night I thought I was going mad! I couldn't sleep or eat properly, I thought my head was going crazy. Tuesday came and my neighbour called. We sat in my living room and I explained to her the way I was feeling and she asked me if I wanted to come to the Lord. I immediately broke down with tears, the struggle was over and I said YES. I literally felt a heavy weight lift from my shoulders. The Lord knew my loneliness and He told me there and then that He would never leave me nor forsake me. That was 23 years ago (1987) and He has kept His promise. A lady who worked with me when I was a cleaner, brought me to Whitewell Church. It was a bible study night. The instant I heard the Pastor preach I knew that Whitewell was the church I was meant to be. I asked the Lord into my heart in March 1987. God is good. He has been my shield, my strong tower, and He has carried me many times. He has supplied all my needs and indeed all my children's needs. He has led me to be part of a prayer ministry in the Church where I am still learning and hopefully, growing. I have let Him down many times but He still loves me. I have fallen, but by His grace I get up again and go on. He is just so lovely and kind, so full of wisdom and strength, He hears and answers prayer. He has blessed me so much and given me so many brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, He has given me His own precious Word to guide me. Life may throw many things at me but I will always be the victor when Christ is with me. He has never lost a case. Corrie Ten Boom said "There is nothing to big that GOD cannot handle, and there is nothing to small for GOD's love." I love Him and I want to serve Him to the best of my ability. My prayer is that whoever reads this testimony would think seriously about the Lord Jesus Christ and come to Him. He is only a prayer away, He loves you so much and wants to live with you forever. No more loneliness in your heart, just a peace that passes all understanding.

GOD bless

Medical theories on the cause of death in crucifixion Matthew W Maslen and Piers D Mitchell

INTRODUCTION Crucifixion may be defined as a method of execution by which a person is hanged, usually by their arms, from a cross or similar structure until dead. It has been used in many parts of the world and in many time periods; but is perhaps best known today as a cruel method of social control and punishment in the Roman Empire around 2000 years ago 1 (pp 22-3). In modern times, the medical profession has shown considerable interest in crucifixion. The typical aim of articles by this group has been to determine how crucified individuals actually died; and they often focus on the case of Jesus of Nazareth. Since Stroud's book of 1847, 2 at least 10 different theories have been proposed ( Table 1 ), and many more articles have been published suggesting various combinations of these theories. The 10 examples referenced in Table 1 have been chosen merely as representing the wide difference of opinion in the published literature: it is not an exhaustive lis

What is TULIP in Calvinism? by Matt Slick

The TULIP of Calvinism is the acronym which represents the five primary points which represent Calvinism : Total depravity, Unconditional election, Limited atonement, Irresistible grace, and Perseverance of the saints. Hence, they are called the five points of Calvinism. The five points "emerged from the Synod of Dort (1618– 19)." 1 "The system of Calvinism adheres to a very high view of scripture and seeks to derive its theological formulations based solely on God’s word. It focuses on God’s sovereignty, stating that God is able and willing by virtue of his omniscience, omnipresence, and omnipotence, to do whatever He desires with His creation. It also maintains that within the Bible are the following teachings: That God, by His sovereign grace predestines people into salvation; that Jesus died only for those predestined; that God regenerates the individual where he is then able and wants to c
