Orlando Shooting

Orlando Shooting.jpg

Truth is Wounded Knee was!!! Then there was Waco, 86 Men, women and children, Actually 25 children, 17 of which were under the age of 5. And that was done by a Democrat President, just like the Democrat President of today has been funding ISIS, the organization that is claiming responsibility for the massacre in Orlando. And the “Shooter” involved, has been working for one of the Obama Administration’s top Security Contractors, who have contracted from the Department of Homeland Security, to illegally transport “illegals” that are “Other Than Mexicans” from the Mexican Border with the United States, to Bus stations and other points much deeper into the United States.

Political Correctness is making people reluctant to speak up for fear of reprisals and intimidation for not following along with Democrat group-think.  We are being forced, little by little, to call good “evil” and evil “good”.

Be Blameless By God

God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life.  1 Thessalonians 4:7

Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God Matt 5:8

Blessed are they whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the Lord. Psalm 119:1

Just as God who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:15-16

May God Himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through.  May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.  1 Thess 5:23

Get out of the sin daily in thought, word, and deed rut; that has a tendency to not end well.

The righteousness of the blameless makes a straight way for them, but the wicked are brought down by their own wickedness.  Proverbs 11:5          (Bye, bye, Hillary)

The man of integrity walks securely, but the one who takes crooked paths will be found out.  Proverbs 10:9

It is in and through the power of the Holy Spirit that we may be found  to be blameless before God and, being blameless, we are made pure in heart and able to leave the rut and move on to our higher calling.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.  Romans 15:13

Rejection of Evidence Regarding The Christ

Scripture passage:  Mark 14:62-65    “…and ye shall see the Son of Man….”

The value of The Christ’s Testimony before the High Priest

How was Jesus’ testimony received by the High Priest?  First thing we should notice is that he was complicit in having false witnesses present to manufacture charges against Jesus as well as other improprieties associated with this trial.

So we take notice of the position which the High Priest assumed on this occasion, it is a position which a great many men assume in regard to the evidences of Christianity today.  He had asked the question, “Are you The Christ?”  Was he prepared to accept supporting evidence?  Suppose Jesus had responded in the negative.  Then He would have been an impostor, and would have been led off from there self-condemned.

But, when Jesus said “I AM,” was there any attempt in the mind of the High Priest to permit testimony?  Instead of even pretending to give any pretense of willingness to consider the testimony he condemned Jesus for blasphemy.

In a legitimate trial Jesus could have easily presented plenty of evidence but there was a predetermined position of opposition against Him which precluded any evidence from having an effect.  That is the position of many people today: they’ve taken the position of opposition which precludes any fair pondering of proof; and the testimony of The Christ to His Messiahship in its full meaning, to wit, the only begotten Son of God and Savior of any who will accept that fact accompanied with a preponderance of evidence that would overwhelmingly convince any man of anything except that.  It does not carry any weight with them because they have chosen not to believe.

Even then, the mighty Messiah who manifests miracles could have brought a complete halt to that kangaroo court’s proceedings but then salvation’s wondrous plan would not have been completed.  Jesus was still in charge, but He lets the evil ones run their course.  Never forget, this was not the time of their choosing but He chose the precise date.

Disbelieve in the Jesus of the Holy Bible and no matter what else you do in this life their will be no virgins and no raisins for you, not even one – only the outer darkness of bitter regret.  Embrace the Jesus of the Holy Bible while you can because He cares for you.

What are You? Why are you what you are?

Matthew 13:36-40  Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.  He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;  The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.  As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. – Jesus, The Christ, as recorded in the Holy Bible

A common saying among the tares is,

“We are all children of God.”

  However that is not what the Scripture or Jesus teaches;

all those who are not genuine followers of The Christ, howsoever good or moral they may seem to be are counted as tares by God and will meet the end appointed unto tares unless they let God “genetically modify” them.  In that same vein, do not kid yourself, it is as though we continue to carry a dormant gene that may become reactivated by the enemy of our soul if we do not stay in close contact with our Savior and Lord.

Stay connected to the vine and be blessed

Be Joyful

It takes seventy-three muscles to frown, so they tell us, but only fourteen to smile.  Well, no wonder grouchy people are always so tired.

Happiness depends on happenings; joy depends on Jesus.

Joy is the flag that is flown from the castle of the heart when the King is in residence there.

God Shaped Vacuum

Everybody basically has an empty hole inside of them that they try to fill with money, drugs, alcohol, power – and none of the material stuff works. – Robert F. Kennedy, Jr (Daniel Cher and Vicki Sheff, “Toxic Avenger,” People, July 22, 1991, 74

 

I used to say: “There is a God-shaped hole in me.” For a long time I stressed the absence, the hole.  Now I find it is the shape which has become more important – Salman Rushdie, Indian – English novelist.

 

There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of everyman, which cannot be filled by any created thing but only by God the Creator, made known through Jesus Christ. – Pascal
