This Husband Didn’t Want To Adopt, Then God Gave Him An Incredible Vision

When God has something in store for your life, you can’t run from it for long.

Adoption is an incredible, God-mirroring feat for Christian families to undertake, but it’s not without its challenges and pitfalls. When God has something in store for your life, however, you can’t run from it for long.

Jeffrey and Kristine Moore learned this lesson on their 10-year adoption journey, ultimately leading them to adopt four children, Elizabeth, Jhonatan, Mariaelena, and Talia, from Peru.

Jeffrey, however, recalled in an interview with PureFlix Insider that he wanted nothing to do with adoption in the early days of their marriage—even after suffering two miscarriages.

“At the time I had said, ‘I don’t think I could adopt, I don’t think I could love a child that wasn’t my own biologically,’” Jeffrey said.

Soon after, God lovingly set Jeffrey straight with an incredible vision that he reveals in the video below:

“The story of adoption began because God called us to it. I had a vision, and it was really, really powerful,” he said. “I was floating in the ocean at night. It was very calm and peaceful, and I was being carried by something in the water, like a current pushing me toward something.”

Jeffrey remembered the water in his vision becoming shallow and leading him to a beach on a tropical island. It’s there that he saw something breathtaking.

“There were all of these jewels or gemstones that were lying around in the sand, and every one of them was glowing with this internal fire,” he continued. “All these points of light…and I just felt compelled to reach out and pick one up.”

His vision ends there, but Jeffrey says he believes God was giving him a very clear message about international adoption: “‘He said, ‘My son, are you willing to be carried by my spirit to a land far away to pick up the jewels that no one else even knows about?’”

Finally equipped with the certainty that they were answering God’s call, the Moores sought help from Adopt Together, a crowdfunding site that helps families raise money toward the sometimes immense expenses incurred in the adoption process.

Kristine says she and her husband knew in their hearts that they were called to adopt more than just one child, so they began the process knowing that the cost would be exponentially greater.

As they continued with the process of adoption, the Moores experienced a life-shattering test: Jeffrey’s lengthy career as a petroleum geologist came to an abrupt end when he lost his job in 2015.

Working to put together the pieces, the Moores asked themselves, “what does this mean for the adoption?” Thankfully, God blessed them with incredible hope and perseverance, and they continued to trust him through the storm.

That unshakable faith eventually led them to Peru in 2017, where Jeffrey, Kristine, and their biological son, Joshua, met the four new members of their family: Elizabeth, Jhonatan, Mariaelena, and Talia.

Now, in 2019, the whole Moore family is praising God for his blessings and providence. They say the four siblings, who were the only children in Peru adopted by an American family in 2017, have adjusted beautifully to life in the States.

“Our kids have been phenomenal,” Kristine said, though she noted that, of course, the “growing pains” of suddenly going from a family of three to a family of seven take a long time to overcome.

Still, God brought these precious children into the Moore family, and raising them up for his glory is such an incredible reward, Kristine declared: “If anyone says, ‘What’s the greatest joy, it is seeing the kids love Jesus.”

Christian Satire Site Strikes Back Against Snopes ‘Smear.’ Here’s How Snopes’ Responded.

Snopes just got put in their place. Good on you, Babylon Bee!

Published

on

Hilariously funny Christian satire site, the Babylon Bee, decided they had enough shenanigans from Snopes, the self-described “fact checking” site and the ongoing smear they launched against them, so they lawyered up, and boy, it didn’t take long for Snopes to change their tune. This just goes to show that we as conservatives and Christians shouldn’t be taking the attacks left-wing media launch at us lying down. The more we fight back, the more they surrender. via Daily Wire: “Last week, Snopes fact-checked us again,” the Bee told its readers Monday (h/t Ed Morrissey). “We’re pretty used to that. But this time, instead of merely rating the article ‘false,’ they questioned whether our work qualifies as satire, and even went so far as to suggest that we were deliberately deceiving our readers. Basically, they treated us as a source of intentionally misleading fake news, rather than as the legitimate, well-known satire publication that we are. This is a big deal.” The reason it’s a “big deal,” the site goes on to explain, is that Snopes has been given significant power over how platforms — particularly Facebook, for which Snopes has served as one of its “fake news” monitors — handle posts: As you know, fake news—which is distinguished from satire by its intent to mislead—was widely considered a serious issue in the last election cycle. As a result, social media networks like Facebook began partnering with fact-checkers to try and limit the distribution of fake news on their platforms. Snopes was one of them. At one point, a piece of ours was rated “false” by Snopes, prompting Facebook to threaten us with limitations and demonetization. We made a stink about this, and after some media attention shed light on the problem, Facebook apologized for their handling of the matter and…

Argentine Photographer Captures INCREDIBLE Image of Christ-Like Cloud

It cannot be denied that our world is in the midst of turmoil unlike anything we’ve seen in the past. From Birmingham to Beijing, we are seeing unprecedented poverty, crime, hate, violence, war, famine….you name it.  Combine these issues with a mainstream media who is salivating at the chance to rile us up for ratings and money, and the world becomes a downright scary place. Where do we turn when the world seems to shun us?  For some, the answers lie in the bottom of a bottle.  For others, it’s self-harm or outward violence. For many, however, their faith is their rock.  They turn to the religious world for answers to the questions that plague us today, and, often, they discover signs of encouragement. Such is the case today in Argentina. Monica Aramayo was in San Salvador de Jujuy in Argentina when she noticed the holy figure shining through the thick clouds Social media user Mariela Romano said: “The Lord will soon come for us all and we should be ready. While another said: “Thanks for the image that allows us to keep on our path and have a better hope for tomorrow.” The photo has to be seen to be believed. https://twitter.com/faithdefender/status/1128809009153097728 The pose and grand scale of the image has reminded many observers of the famous Christ The Redeemer statue in Brazil. https://twitter.com/OtravelAI/status/1082513665700507648 And while the cloud formation certainly isn’t going to change the minds of the unfaithful, it does provide us all with a reminder that we are loved, and we must remain harmonious with one another on this turbulent little space rock.
