Exclamation foreverflash's Collection - My New Life

I want to share a short testimony and some Bible scriptures with all of you. This past Thursday I made a decision to change the way I have been living, being a Christian, I have been living deeply immersed in sin and all the things of this World. I have decided to surrender and give my whole life over to the Will and Power of Jesus Christ again, who is my personal Lord and Savior from my Sin. My time online will be much less from this point forward. I'm changing my life (through the Power of Jesus Christ) and part of that includes staying off the internet, reducing all sources of temptation, avoiding all the things of this World and most importantly seeking my Lord Jesus Christ every single day, all throughout the day, remaining in a constant state of prayer and always reading the Word of God. I've turned my heart, mind and body back to Jesus Christ and have surrendered my life to him again. I have asked Him to forgive me of ALL my sins and I know that he has because his Word tells me so.


For years now I have been very sick both physically and spiritually and I came to a breaking point this past Friday. The reason things will be different this time around in coming back to Jesus and seeking God is that I am not expecting my life to be easy from this point forward. In fact, I'm expecting things to be harder. It is harder to live for Jesus and seek God every day than it is not to. I feel a real passion for Christ again. I'm staying in prayer, reading my Bible and trying to fill my time by being with other Christians, family and going to events, especially Church and Bible Studies. I've removed everything in my life that was keeping me from God. That includes all my collectibles which I have been worshiping as false idols for many many years now, and all my pornography, all my Worldly music, comics books and I have changed every account and social median I own online, making them all clean of Worldly things and honorable to God. Everything physical is gone, in bags, dumped. A burden so incredible and heavy has been lifted from me.

1 John 1:9
New Living Translation (NLT)
9 But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.

Jeremiah 17:9
New Living Translation (NLT)
9 “The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is?

Isaiah 26:9
New Living Translation (NLT)
9 All night long I search for you; in the morning I earnestly seek for God. For only when you come to judge the earth will people learn what is right.

John 3:16
New Living Translation (NLT)
16 “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.

Matthew 11:28-30
New Living Translation (NLT)
28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

John, Chapter 11:21-27
New Living Translation (NLT)
21 Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if only you had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 But even now I know that God will give you whatever you ask.” 23 Jesus told her, “Your brother will rise again.” 24 “Yes,” Martha said, “he will rise when everyone else rises, at the last day.” 25 Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. 26 Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this, Martha?” 27 “Yes, Lord,” she told him. “I have always believed you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one who has come into the world from God.”

Thanks mike. It's very hard work taking care of them but it's something I'm fully committed to as long as their conditions permit or I completely burn out. I'm hoping I can stick it out at least a couple more years and see where things are at that point...

Yea, my ULE is the holy grail of my collection, but unfortunately I DID open it. I just couldn't help myself. I knew I would never sell it (ever) and to be honest, I actually had this crazy notion that there might be "nothing" inside and I got totally ripped off! lol Turned out the inside was damaged like I said. Too bad. I'll never be able to invest in another one of these...but I'm very happy to have 1. Go Bruins! Oh, and I will do a video review of my Dead Space plasma cutters soon...

Well they've gotten to be 86 so you must be doing a great job. I lost my grandfather a few years ago, he was about the healthiest 80 yr old you'll ever see (he was lifting winter tires the night before) so it was totally unexpected - He died of a blood clot, he wasn't on his blood thinners. Just goes to show anything can happen, that being said - Caregiving for 2 86 year old's must be a stressful job. I commend you man.

Haha, I don't blame you. but myself, I'd never open it. I would feel to pissed that I didn't just buy a used version for cheaper.

As for the bruins, I cheer for them second. It looks like my beloved sens are a confirmed dead last in the NHL once again and the Bruins are good for another cup run so I'm excited. I actually got to touch the cup this summer when Kelly (a personal friend of mine) brought it to Ottawa. It was pretty cool!

You got a impressive collection there! And I think its very honorable what you are doing for your grandparents. I have great respect for your work and your collector's passion.

A question to the art pieces, is this really a western art of assassins creed ? It looks more like Roland Deschain.

Really nice collection you have there, it would look really nice if you got some nice shelves to display them (the ones I'm using are from Ikea, and they're relatively inexpensive)...

I completely forgot about that splinter cell case, any chance you could post up some details about it you might now (the official name, where they were originally sold, and how much they originally sold for, etc.) it's not in the database, either and that's one release I wouldn't mind adding to my personal collection.

You might be interested to know that I live up in NH, Tilton to be exact. I know you said you never get a day off but if you ever find yourself up in the lakes region you're welcome to stop by, just shoot me a message.
