    Hi,

    Don’t do facebook. Don’t trust the site.
    But understand the decision. Wish I could help financially, but can’t.
    Will miss the threads and posters.

    Love you guys.
    Dave
    PS. Love the shut down date….

    Losing Rita is sad news indeed, but I do understand.

    Thanks to the Mods and all involved with this site for the fellowship during the precious time we had together on this forum.

    Prophesy is moving fast, praying we all meet in the air soon to be with the Lord.

    God bless you all.

    :heart:

    I don’t have a facebook account. I am reluctant to go to social media because of privacy concern. I belong to the old school. But I guess if we have to go through this route,I shall go with the crowd. But don’t expect me to share my picture though. LOL.

    I am very sad about losing this site. Are there not any other options that are cheaper than what is currently being used? I have a FB account (only because my sister and friend set it up) but hardly ever visit the site. I will once this transition is made but I will not post until it is made a private group. Can that be done sooner rather than later? I post here and feel safe to do so. I won’t post and have everyone that is in my circle of friends and family see my conversations with RITAN. That is not a safe place for me to discuss these things.

    It only took me 24 hours to realize that we need a group setting. LOL. But I just made a post about how to get to the group. Please join us there!

    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”

    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    Thanks W&W! I did it. Do you have to accept me before I can post?


    #131455

    Yes, but I have been approving pretty quickly. Within one minute. Glad you joined us there!

    Like I mentioned earlier, I hardly ever get on FB because I don’t like how it is set up. It’s very frustrating to find anything – you may see something once and can’t ever find it again 🙁 I’ve been keeping an eye on the new group page today and remembered another thing that I don’t like – it isn’t chronologically ordered by most recent post. So someone could create a comment on a post that was made a week ago and way down on the page and it does not come up to the top for everyone to see. (I’m sorry for the whining 😥 ) I know I asked this earlier – but is there a cheaper alternative than what we are doing now – I would be willing to donate a set monthly commitment and I’m sure others here would too.

    NFJF, the technical issues with Ritan mounts month by month as it bulks up and the software updates in pieces. We will definitely have a bit of a learning curve on FB, as we have already seen, but this is the direction we will be moving. So far today 115 members have joined up over there, and most excitingly this includes many people who previously just read the posts, but never posted. Often because of difficulty in getting through Ritan’s membership system with separate passwords and users names and such. Since FB does much of that already, it makes it easier for many to participate.

    We do understand that FB isn’t for everyone. I did speak with Benjamin and he gave permission to suggest his forum as an alternative to this forum if you really can’t abide Facebook. His site can be found in the prayers for Shiloh post. There are some very nice people over there, many of whom used to be here. Shiloh and Benjamin included. Same family. Different living room.

    I am convinced of this, that the One who began a good action among you will bring it to completion by the Day of the Messiah Jesus. Philippians 1:6

    I checked out that site.. Wow! That looks like a great website. We should move there! 🙂

    It is a great website. It’s okay to have two families to visit with, but please don’t forget us. We’d miss you.

    Actually, If you do comment on a post that is far down on the page, it will bump up to the top, the same way RITAN does. You just have to refresh the page.

    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”

    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    OK.
    One day of prayer, and the Spirit is not moving me toward Facebook.
    I wonder if it is gonna be that those who were previously comfortable with FB will follow, and those who were not previously comfortable with FB will scatter?

    please forgive my ignorance but will any of these work?

    Romans 7:15-20 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do, this I keep on doing.

    I Am the Lord! Besides Me there is no Savior. For there is no other name under Heaven given among men by which we must be saved. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved!...For in him we live, and move, and have our being!

    To all who have concerns about FB, privacy or otherwise: just create an account with either your usename here, or some other made up name. Then use it only to connect with the RITAN group. And obviously don’t put any personal information on there.

    I tried to sign up facebook with my user name 2ndcoming. It has been rejected. The reason is 2ndcoming is not a proper name. I am still hesitating if I should sign up facebook. I guess I need God’s guidance now.

    Anyway,now that RITAN is about to shut down,if I remember correctly,I joined RITAN on May 20. I can’t remember the exact year.It’s either in 2010 or 2011. May 20 2018 Pentecost shall become my 7th or 8th year anniversary since I joined RITAN. I wonder if God is behind all these? LOL.

    I don’t know why not. Hollywood types give their children all kinds of weird names.

    Maybe, first name = Second, last name = Coming?

    Have not been posting much as of late. I will miss this site more than I could ever say. I read the post for years before I joined and it was a blessing in my life. It makes me very sad and I wish all the best and thank everyone here. That said there is no way I would ever consider joining Facebook, not a chance. Gods love to all of you and see you in the air.
    Much love to all,
