The fasting continues to go well, without ever going more than 24 hours. Incorporating freshly squeezed vegetable juice seems to help the body recover quicker. Other than juicing, there have been no dietary changes or modifications. Daily energy and strength levels are acceptable. Prayer requests are made known to the Lord e.g. seeking His will and wisdom in specific areas.  :)

We don't change God's message -- His message changes us.

Every place in the KJV bible where it says to "afflict your souls," it is referring to fasting. I now fully understanding why it's an affliction! It's not easy!!!

Some research articles indicate that fasting never gets easier. For example, if a person has fasted 10 times in the last year, it won't make it easier to embark on the next fast. For me, it's actually become harder, each time I begin a new fast.  ::)

Reiteration: I never fast more than one day, but it's still hard every time.  :-[

Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
