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.”

Instead Of Abolishing Police, How About Abolishing Abortion And Planned Parenthood? OPINION

Published

on

Over the last several weeks, we’ve all witnessed our nation being further destroyed and torn apart by individuals who claim to be fighting against racism and police brutality. We’ve watched as these same folks burn businesses to the ground in the name of peace, a message stuffed to the gills with oxymoronic irony that appears to be lost on folks who are trying to justify this behavior on the grounds of the cause we now know as “black lives matter.” That’s a phrase we’ve heard a lot lately. And you know what? It’s true. Black lives really do matter. Black lives are image bearers of God, which means they have intrinsic value and worth. Black lives are no different than lives of any other color or ethnicity. Adam and Eve are our first parents. Our blood is the same shade of red. Our ancestry is the exact same when you trace it back to the beginning. We all suffer from the same fallen nature, the same sinful disposition, that has earned us a place under the wrath of God, with our only hope being Jesus Christ and the work He accomplished through His life, death, and resurrection. Since black lives really do matter, instead of abolishing police departments, we should all be united in a fight against the ultimate destroyer of the black community: Abortion. Yes, instead of tossing out police departments, we ought to be giving Planned Parenthood the boot. More black lives have been taken at abortion clinics than have ever been killed by evil, twisted police officers. And that’s not to make light of police brutality. It’s a real thing. It exists. Perhaps we as conservatives have been so gung-ho in the past about blindly supporting police that we’ve ignored that reality. Well, it’s hard to ignore…

Mississippi Governor Delivers Message Condemning The Burning Of Church That Opposed COVID-19 Restrictions

Published

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves released a statement on Thursday condemning the burning of a church that had opposed the restrictions put in place concerning the spread of the coronavirus. The church had filed a lawsuit against the state for its prohibition on large gatherings. Reeves took to Twitter and stated that he was both “heartbroken and furious” with the shameful action that was taken against the church. “What’s this pandemic doing to us?” he asked in his post. “We need prayer for this country.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: The church, First Pentecostal Church in Holly Springs, burned to the ground sometime early Wednesday morning, according to police. Grafitti was found in the parking lot reading, “I Bet you stay home now you hypokrits.” The burning is being investigated as arson. “We’re in a time where I don’t think it’s any secret that there’s a growing hostility toward churches, across the board,” Thomas More Society senior counsel and lawyer for the church Stephen Crampton told Fox News. “And now, here are churches like First Pentecostal that are sort of stirring up the waters by being outspoken and somewhat firm about seeking to protect their constitutional rights.” The church had filed a lawsuit back in April after the pastor of the congregation was given a ticket for holding a drive-in service on Easter, which happens to be one of the most important holidays for Christians, who celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead on that day. This belief is the foundation of the Christian faith and it is shameful to not be able to celebrate it together with other believers. Especially when this church was willing to compromise and simply worship from their vehicles and maintain social distancing guidelines. A district attorney later ruled in favor…
