Liberty has proven to be the profoundest ideal in Judeo-Christianity; with liberty of mind and soul and body of the masses being a relatively new concept among men then it is understandable that the foes of freedom attack the religion which supports that ideal.
2nd Chronicles 7:13-14
There is video evidence that Trump supporters were trying to stop ANTIFA from breaking into the capital. ANTIFA was trying to smash an emergency door and a patriot stepped in to stop it. There is also video evidence that police were in on the breach. They opened the gates and stepped aside to let “protestors” in. Witnesses all have matching stories of what happened but the media will not share it. A few witnesses heard antifa’s plan to “shake things up”. It was ANTIFA who stormed the capital, they were not Trump supporters. You can find this on Parler or in Facebook groups like ThePatriotParty. It’s all there on video that Facebook and YouTube keep trying to remove. Parler won’t delete them tho, try there.
I’ve lost a few friends over politics in the last five years and no matter what happens on January 20th this is how I feel… Not open for debate:
I have listened to everyone else’s hatred and rhetoric for months, so now I am having my day. If you don’t like it, you may just wander on along your dark path. Let me be clear, I AM NOT a Biden fan. From his own words, I know he is corrupt, a liar, and probably suffering from dementia. He has done nothing to improve anything in his 47-year political career. But what has Trump done in the past 4 years? The “arrogant” SOB in the White House , brokered two Middle East Peace Accords, something that 71 years of political intervention and endless war failed to produce. The “buffoon” in the White House, is the first president that has NOT engaged us in a foreign war since Eisenhower. The “racist” in the White House, has had the greatest impact on the economy, bringing jobs, and lowering unemployment to the Black and Latino population of ANY other president. EVER!. The “liar” in the White House, has exposed the deep, widespread, and long-standing corruption in the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, and the Republican and Democratic parties. The “buffoon” in the White House, turned NATO around and had them start paying their dues. The “fool” in the White House, neutralized the North Koreans and stopped them sending missiles toward Japan and threatening the West Coast of the US. The “xenophobe” in the White House, turned our relationship with the Chinese around, brought hundreds of business back to the US, and revived the economy. Hello?????The “clown” in the White House, has accomplished the appointing of three Supreme Court Justices ,who believe in the rights of the unborn and close to 300 Federal Judges. This same clown lowered your taxes, increased the standard deduction on your IRS return from $12,500 to $24,400 for married couples and caused the stock market to rise to record levels, positively impacting the retirement accounts of tens of millions of citizens. The “clown” in the White House, fast-tracked the development of a COVID Vaccine, which was just approved and is being shipped out as we speak and yet we still don’t have a vaccine for SARS, Bird Flu, Ebola, or a host of diseases that arose during previous administrations??? The “clown” in the White House rebuilt our military, which the Obama administration crippled and fired 214 key generals and admirals, in his first year of office. I got it, you don’t like him. Many of you utterly hate and despise him. How window-licking-short-bus special of you. He is serving you and ALL the American people And might I add, he’s doing it for FREE.. What are you doing besides calling him names and laughing about him for catching the China virus?? Some of you were even hoping that COVID would be the cause of his demise??Please educate me again as to what Biden has accomplished for America in his 47 years in office, besides making the whole Biden family richer??? By the way, where is Hunter? Oh, and when asked by the media about HUNTER, BIDEN has no response? I’ll take the ‘clown’ any day, versus a fork tongued, smooth talking, hypocritical, corrupt liar. I want a strong leader who isn’t afraid to kick some butt when needed. I don’t need a “fatherly” figure. I don’t need a liar. That’s what Hollywood, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS and the New York Times are for. God bless Donald Trump – the most unappreciated President in U.S. history.
The Bible tells us in the last days “good will be called evil, and evil considered good”. I believe it is easy for everyone to realize after this election that we are in the last days. About the only good thing I can think of to say about satan and the Communist Democrats is that they are patient. We didn’t get to this point where America is teetering on total Destruction overnight. It has come about by slowly chipping away pieces of our constitution, it has come about by tearing out one page at a time of the Bible, like football one inch at a time until now they are at the goal line. The only truthful comment Joe Biden has ever made was , “there are dark days ahead for America”, and before you start blaming the Communist Democrats for the dismantling of our great nation let me say there is plenty of blame to go around. I’m especially disheartened and ashamed by Christians who voted Democrat you above all should have known better. Democrat have not tried to hide their evil and demonic agenda and yet you voted for them I personally believe when you stand before God you will answer for this. And for the rest of you ignorant Americans who care nothing for your country and you lazy bums who couldn’t even get off the couch to go vote you are just as guilty and in the near future are going to have to suffer but sadly so will the rest of us. It’s the children and the grandchildren my heart weeps for they will never know the liberty and the freedom that we have enjoyed In Our Lifetime. We had it all America and you gave it away shame shame shame on you. And do you really believe that God is going to step in and save us from this evil I don’t. We have pulled down statues of Christ and remove the Ten Commandments out of our federal buildings we have slaughtered millions of innocent babies we have embraced evil and denied God, I could be wrong but I think judgment is coming.
Pray America like you have never prayed before that the Democrats are not able to steal this election
It is somewhat understandable why many people mistrust certain Christians; however, there are other Christians whom it is quite dangerous to despise. Those Christians and their way of living may make you feel a bit uncomfortable regarding the life-choices you have made or may be currently making but since they are actually embarking on the spirit-walk we are all called to travel in then it is wise to take note and move in the same direction and along the same pathway and in the same manner as they are. “Blessed are the pure in heart ….” – Jesus. And God commanded, “Be holy even as I am holy.”
Wherever a number of Christians have associated together, with the evident and exclusive aim of promoting purity of heart and life, they have prospered. The most profound attention to the history of the general church will show the same unvarying truth. Under the influence of apostolic purity, the early victories of the cross were as decisive in the reformation of individual character and public manners, as they were unparalleled in their extent and power. But the gradual departure from primitive simplicity, and the immense accumulation of corruption in heart and life which followed, by slow degrees destroyed the power of the church to act as a reforming agent. There are punctuated periods of pursuing heart purity throughout church history and we stand in dire need of another. The possibility of the perpetual presence of the empowering Spirit of God is real but the spirit cools for whatever reason and the fervent flames of reformation fade until problems provoking punishment from the Supreme Moral Authority again multiply. See 2nd Chronicles 7:13-15
The pure in heart — Those whose hearts are purified by faith; who are not only sprinkled from an evil conscience by the blood of Jesus, but cleansed by the Spirit of God from vain thoughts, unprofitable reasonings, earthly and sensual desires, and corrupt passions; who are purified from pride, self-will, discontent, impatience, anger, malice, envy, covetousness, ambition; whose hearts are circumcised to love the Lord their God with all their hearts, and their neighbours as themselves, and who, therefore, are not only upright before him, but possess and maintain purity of intention and of affection in all their designs, works, and enjoyments; serving him continually with a single eye and an undivided heart. They shall see God — Namely, in the glass of his works, whether of creation, providence, or grace, here, and face to face hereafter: they shall have fellowship with him in his ordinances, and shall endure as seeing him that is invisible, while they walk by faith on earth, and shall be admitted to the most perfect vision and complete enjoyment of him in heaven. – Joseph Benson
The above is an excerpt from my current book project
Blessed are the pure in heart is what our Lord said, He didn’t say pure in the head; men may have pure notions and impure hearts. It was not in the hand, or action, or in outward conversation only. The Pharisees were outwardly righteous before men but, we are told, inwardly they were full of impurity. It is in the heart that we are to be pure. Ever since the failure of Adam, the heart of man has been “naturally” unclean and it is not within our own power to make it clean or to be pure from sin. Too many people stop right there just like John Calvin did. Now, “The Bible is a holy book and woe to the man that would make it a minister of sin!” – Dudley Kidd. Many people do carefully give consideration to the command of God, “Be ye holy, even as I Am holy….” With such a command coming from our Creator, it seems that there should be a way for it to occur. Guess what; Scripture reveals there is! The preventatives against sin are not in us but in God. Either the doctrine of God as related by the Apostle John or the practice of sin must be abandoned; they are incompatible with each other. The ones who are wise will seek to find it while the foolish ones will not and they will tend to merely rely on the “lamp oil” they already started out with; initial sanctification. Even they who’ve experienced the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit tend to find themselves desiring and following after ever more purity of heart, life, thought, and conversation; so happy and blessed they are for they shall see God, in this life and in the one to follow. – Ward Clinton, an excerpt from my current book project.
PRAYER FOR THE SUPREME COURT JUSTICESAs the next few days are critical in the Texas case coming before the Supreme Court, let’s agree in prayer that God will have His way in this process to restore truth and justice to this nation.
“He appointed judges in the land…He told them, ‘Consider carefully what you do, because you are not judging for mere mortals but for the Lord, who is with you whenever you give a verdict. Now let the fear of the Lord be on you. Judge carefully, for with the Lord our God there is no injustice or partiality or bribery.’” (2 Chronicles 19:5-7)
Father, we pray for the Supreme Court Justice’s as they deliberate the case now before them. We ask that they would feel the weight of heaven even more than the pressure of man as they hear this just cause. As they are bound to uphold the Constitution in their rendering, we ask that their conscience would remind them of what is true, right, and good in the sight of God. Override any fear or hesitation with the weight of Your presence and the reality of eternity’s record of their role in this hour. May a fresh zeal of the Lord ignite their hearts and awaken their destiny to this strategic assignment that comes not just from the minds of men, but the throne of God. We pray that the words they speak would act as a two-edged sword to cut through the veil of deception and treason in this land. May their declarations separate the truth from the lies, the facts from the fiction, and the collective good of the people from the collusion of the corrupt. Use their voices as conduits of Your judgments against those who have set themselves against You and Your laws. May the courts of heaven overshadow these proceedings and echo the prayers of the saints that have stood in the gap for the sake of this nation and the honor of Your name. If there have been any threats, coercion, or attempts at bribery or blackmail, we declare that the fear of the Lord would render any such weapons null and void. If any past compromise has clouded their judgment or blinded their vision, we now declare that righteous intercession would help clear the cobwebs and cut the ties that have bound their souls and shut their mouths. We declare that their minds will be sharp, their arguments be sound, and their unity in this decision be firm and resolute. May the spirit of wisdom and revelation rest upon their court with unexpected clarity and power to rule in the midst of our enemies and render justice for all. Let their gavels be as scepters in Your sight to reestablish the plumb line of truth and the foundations of justice. May their judgments bring peace to the people and terror to the wrongdoers. MAY THEIR DECISIONS STRENGTHEN THE SPINE OF THIS NATION AND BE THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER FOR SUPERNATURAL TRANSFORMATION ACROSS THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH! In Jesus’s name and for the glory of the King, Amen! “Hate evil and love what is good; turn your courts into true halls of justice. Perhaps even yet the LORD God of Heaven’s Armies will have mercy on the remnant of His people.” (Amos 5:15 NLT)
THE BUMMER LAMB
Every once in a while, a ewe will give birth to a lamb and reject it. There are many reasons she may do this. If the lamb is returned to the ewe, the mother may even kick the poor animal away. Once a ewe rejects one of her lambs, she will never change her mind. These little lambs will hang their heads so low that it looks like something is wrong with its neck. Their spirit is broken. These lambs are called “bummer lambs.” Unless the shepherd intervenes, that lamb will die, rejected and alone. So, do you know what the shepherd does? He takes that rejected little one into his home, hand-feeds it and keep it warm by the fire. He will wrap it up with blankets and hold it to his chest so the bummer can hear his heartbeat. Once the lamb is strong enough, the shepherd will place it back in the field with the rest of the flock. But that sheep never forgets how the shepherd cared for him when his mother rejected him. When the shepherd calls for the flock, guess who runs to him first? That is right, the bummer sheep. He knows his voice intimately. It is not that the bummer lamb is loved more, it just knows intimately the one who loves it. It’s not that it is loved more, it just believes it because it has experienced that love one on one. So many of us are bummer lambs, rejected and broken. But He is the good Shepherd. He cares for our every need and holds us close to His heart so we can hear His heart beat. We may be broken but we are deeply loved by the Shepherd.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.~ Psalm 23
Pray for him and our country. 2nd Chronicles 7:13-15
