I just had opportunity to read your June newsletter. Its hard to know how to respond to it. You are so right, so correct when you ask "where is discernment today?" I fail to see it time and again in many situation where various "sensational" things are being promoted. Supposedly under the guise of "godlinesss." I learned a long time ago that "todays sensation is tomorrows commonplace." It just keeps repeating itself over and over in the lives of certain people. Therefore, we just keep chasing a more sensational sensation to titilate the senses.
I think it (discernment) has flown away a long time ago. I sure don`t see much of it in evidence today anyway. I see where we make decisions today about various things and you would wonder at some of the decisions made....from seeming spiritual leaders....about leaders. I`ve wondered about some of the things you mention for a long time but it seems it is just the "old boys" who actually see some of these things. Then we are accused of just being too old fashioned in our thinking. That this is a new day and we must change for the sake of change, not to offend, etc.,etc. Well, they can keep some of the changes that are being touted as being from God today. I`ll stick to the old ways solidly founded in Scripture, such as "come out from among them and be ye separate saith the Lord." Offer your life as a living sacrifice, holy unto the lord, etc.,etc. There are lots of them in there. We just don`t hear much about them today we are so busy trying "not to offend" or "chase them away from an irrelevant Church.
Anyway, I`d best shut up or I`ll get started. Keep speaking up Donna. I don`t know if anyone will listen today, but keep speaking.

Thank you Donna for this e-mail, it seems sometimes there is no one in the boat with you and you just want to hide.
I gave a word in the church about 3 weeks ago and it finished off by saying" God is going to send a catastrophy "or something very catastrophic to our land.
I have believed and seen this coming for years but it seems there are many that serve a God I don`t know, and I serve a God they don`t know.
It just isn`t in the North American mind set to believe that God could be in a catastrophy to bring others to himself. But also to declare who He really is and that`s God Almighty.
Romans 22 verse 11 is the God I know and serve which causes me to put myself on a short leach ,as eternity remains my life time goal and destination.
How arrogant it is to look around at the nations and pity them and think we will go unscathed . I believe in prayer of course but for the last 20 years we`ve had an upsurge of intercession and look at our Nation of Canada . What is wrong? Could it be we have not turned from our wicked ways and we will reap the reward other nations are enduring.
God has not changed and He still hates injustice how ever it shows itself.
May God grant His people peace and protection as the days ahead reveal where we really stand in our relationship with God.
It was good for me to put this on paper Donna
and send it to someone who is on that page.
Thanks for listening. It seems we always remain connected.
Blessings Donna Bray

If only there were a way to get the people deep within these false teachings to look a little harder and see the error.
This article was excellent. God really has his hand on these teachings. Thank you.
