Praying for Lucy Part 2

After being in a coma for 5 days, she came out of the coma last Monday (they thought it might be meningitis with fevers topping 104 F!), and here she is today!

Nancy Missler

(these diagrams might be from Watchman Nee see this link
but if I remember correctly Nancy's thoughts on this topic were very similar........)

I mentioned in a comment on Leslie's blog that I enjoyed a Bible study by Nancy Missler, Chuck Missler's wife. Chuck had it (at one time) on his website in audio format (I believe? I know I had originally heard it in the audio format, but it is possible that he had it in written form only, it was quite a while ago). I tried to find it, but now they only have it available for sale on Nancy's own website she entitled "The King's Highway".

However, I did find a site that takes apart Nancy's Bible study, and gives reasons why Nancy is completely wrong in her thoughts on most things Biblical. It's long...I plan to read it, from what I remember, I thought Nancy had a very good study, but I was a new baby in Christ at the time, so I am interested in revisiting this and see where she (and I) possibly had it wrong. :)

Anyway, a few things to keep us busy and praying about :)

Praying for Lucy

Please pray for beautiful precious Lucy, who has been fighting a rare form of brain cancer, medulloblastoma, since February 2011.

This is the first post after the diagnosis in 2/11:

What is strange is that the term "blink of an eye" (actually twinkle of the eye, but both forms really) has been on my mind lately, in it's Dutch form: Ogenblik...I've been having the nudge to post on that term, which in Dutch means THIS moment, at least that is how my mom always used that term, to refer to the present moment in time: "op het ogenblik" (at the present moment).

This is where Lucy is today, "op het ogenblik":

This term is also used in the Bible when the Apostle Paul tells us about the moment we will see Jesus:

 1Co 15:51  Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
1Co 15:52  in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.
1Co 15:53  For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality.
1Co 15:54  When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: "Death is swallowed up in victory."

in Dutch:

51 Ziet, ik zeg u een verborgenheid: wij zullen wel niet allen ontslapen, maar wij zullen allen veranderd worden;
52 In een punt des tijds, in een ogenblik, met de laatste bazuin; want de bazuin zal slaan, en de doden zullen onverderfelijk opgewekt worden, en wij zullen veranderd worden.
53 Want dit verderfelijke moet onverderfelijkheid aandoen, en dit sterfelijke moet onsterfelijkheid aandoen.
54 En wanneer dit verderfelijke zal onverderfelijkheid aangedaan hebben, en dit sterfelijke zal onsterfelijkheid aangedaan hebben, alsdan zal het woord geschieden, dat geschreven is: De dood is verslonden tot overwinning.
55 Dood, waar is uw prikkel? Hel, waar is uw overwinning?
