Video shows shoppers pushed, shoved during Black Friday chaos

Fight breaks out over phones on Black Friday

http://radio.woai.com/cc-common/news/sections/newsarticle.html?feed=104668&article=10591459#ixzz2D5GJYi9C

2 Timothy 3: 1-4  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

The day after Thanksgiving is tradition ally called Black Friday.  It’s the day when retailers begin to balance their ledgers with black ink as the Christmas season begins, sales go up, profits are made and thus the retailers go from red ink, showing a loss, to the black ink.  The pope recently stated:  that the traditionally accepted birth date for Jesus is wrong…  

Pope’s book on Jesus challenges Christmas traditions – CNN.com

So all of this scrambling, clawing, and lining up to get our $20 toasters, to celebrate the day our Savior was born is wrong!  Oops, I hate when that happens!

Back to the video links above:  In my opinion, we have arrived at the point the prophecy above warns us of, what the times will look like in the last days.   Look at the crowd as they push, yell at each other, and claw their way to get their precious cell phones.  Pandemonium is a good word  to describe what is happening.

It saddens me to see this as we, as a culture, a nation, have sunk to an all time low.  There is not an ounce of courtesy, or good will, instead we see a dog eat dog mentality repeated in countless malls across the country.  What is the reason for the season?  Do we as a nation celebrate the birth of the God/man Jesus – even if the date is wrong – or is it blatant, crass, consumerism?  We fight over nativity scenes in the public square, Christmas plays banned at our schools, greeting each other with, Happy Holidays, instead of Merry Christmas.  We hear lawyers rant about the separation of church and state and on and on it goes.  We are a country that has lost our very soul and all we need to see this is the actions of the people caught in the video.  Can you imagine this happening 50 years ago?

In closing todays Bun:  I believe the videos above clearly show us what time it is.  In some respects Obama is right when he announced, in the early part of his first term, America is not a Christian nation.   There certainly is nothing Christian about the crowd in the videos.  I guess we should expect this as our children are taught we all evolved from apes, and those people in the video are, in some respects, acting like them.  A few days ago it was Black Friday but to me it’s not about black ink in a ledger.  Instead, the darkness of the soul of man is revealed, for all to see, in these last days….

    I agree we are a lost nation.We need to turn to god!!

    • Linda said

      god? Tha’ts exactly what they have done. Many gods, but not the ONE TRUE GOD!

    • Idolotry applies to reverence and desire for idolotrous things. Not purely worship as in the idol IS a god, but it can be a substitute for God. Even our phones, when in time of great peril we might dial 9-1-1 rather than pray to the Lord on high for salvation.

      Christmas has turned into a festival of idolotry.

    • Linda said

      I think it always was we just didn’t take issue! Santa vs Jesus!

    • Who would ever have thought that “perilous times” would include a frenzied people searching for the “best bargains” and pushing and shoving to get them?

      I semi-watched the first video and I instantly felt the pain in my chest and tears welling up inside of me from the pain of hearing the screaming of these people. Yes, don’t forget, they are people.

      Help Lord, get people to see that the real value is in you my Lord, everlasting life eternal and at the best bargain ever, FREE just for the asking!

      Blessings.

    • Santa and Satan are one letter off. This is closer than any have suspected.

    • Linda said

      really “he sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake, he knows if you’ve been good, or bad so be good for goodness sakes!’ Either he has his fallen angels assigned to each one of us, or he’s omnipresent and onimiscience! We know that’s ONLY GOD so he is claiming GOD’s Character and abilities. The great deceiver! It was funny and magical as a child catholic, but as an adult Christian who could continue the sham? I told my children the truth early on as the HS convicted me and so with my grandson. He picked up on that mix of letters and laughed! He believes the idea belongs to satan himself. It’s hard to go against the rituals. But letting satan/santa get credit for GOD’s blessings is terrible. I don’t even like giving a charitable donation to poor children w/o them knowing it’s because GOD loves them and wants to care for them.

    When Jesus was born could well have been the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles. But I doubt if the Pope could see that. The inns were all full and that was the reason and 25’th of Dec. there would have been pretty cold for a newborn baby even at the time of the Feast let alone Dec. 25.

    Makes sense to me and if a search is done there is some very good scripture given by some to verify it.

    Something to think about!

    • Barbara in VA said

      JGB: There was just such a search done years ago by Dr. Noah Hutchings of Southwest Radio Church Ministries. He wrote a paper on it which I’ve put away somewhere (who knows where) but which was so thorough that it left nothing to suppose! You are right–sometime during the Feast of Tabernacles which falls anywhere near the end of Sept. through the first of Oct. depending on the year!

      He based the timing of Jesus’ birth on the scripture in Luke 1:5-13 and following verses about when Zacharias (father of John the Baptist) was visited by an angel and told of the future birth of his son, John. Then further down in Luke 1:39-42 and following of Mary’s visit to her cousin Elizabeth, mother of John. The dates of Zacharias’ service in the temple are known (I don’t remember how) and so the date of Elizabeth’s conception can be known. They figured the date of Mary’s conception based on when she visited Elizabeth. They have determined that Mary’s conception was on or about Dec. 25th–Amazing! Nine months forward would be end of Sept-thru about the first week in Oct. I wish I remembered all the details, but this was quite a few years ago when this paper came out. It was extremely well-documented and extremely interesting. Ever since, I have celebrated Christmas as the conception of Jesus and Feast of Tabernacles as birth of Jesus. You might could get a copy of this paper from SWRC by phoning or emailing them for it. “http://swrc.com/web/homepage.html”

      Maranatha!

    • Steve Mc said

      “They have determined that Mary’s conception was on or about Dec. 25th…” That’s interesting Barbara. Additionally, the name Jesus, in the new testament greek, apparently correlates with the number 888. Three eights equals twenty four. The Bible says that the evening and the morning were the first day, and the evening before the day of Dec. 25th is the evening of Dec. 24th.

    • JLL said

      Here is Chuck Missler’s article on the date of Jesus’s birth:
      “http://www.joshuanet.org/articles/missler/born.htm”

      Short answer:
      If Jesus was born on September 29, 2 B.C., it is interesting to note that in that year this was also the 1st of Tishri, the day of the Feast of Trumpets.

    • Linda said

      JLL :) Ist Trump and the last Trump ( and also a Last Trump for the Church!)

    • blic said

      actually there was an astronomic software that by tracing the plaetary positioning somehow determined Jesus was born sept. 11.
      i think rob skiba was who i heard it from but not sure.

    • blic said

      here’a another;

      “http://www.cortright.org/revsign.htm”

      In 3 B.C the constellation Virgo clothed with the sun as it entered the mid-body in its ecliptic course had the moon under her feet on one day only – Wednesday, September 11th. This configuration was visible in the Palestine area between 6:18 P.M. and 7:39 P.M. on that day. It was during this time period that Jesus Christ was born.

      September 11, 3 B.C. fell on the first day of the month Tishri (the seventh month of the year according to the calendar given Moses following the exodus from Egypt.) Prior to the exodus, Tishri was the first month of the year and “Rosh Hashanah” or New Year’s Day is still celebrated in modern Judaism on this day. It is believed that the first day of the first year was the day that the first Adam was formed, made and created by God. Jesus Christ, the second Adam, was born on this same day in 3BC.

      “During the whole of New Year’s Day [Tishri 1], trumpets and horns were blown in Jerusalem from morning to evening.” – Alfred Edersheim – The Temple: Its Ministry and Services.

      On Tishri 1 [September 11, 3 B.C.] while trumpets were blowing in Jerusalem to honor God and welcome the new year, in the small nearby town of Bethlehem the promised Christ who would reconcile men to God was being born. The religious and political leaders of the day were occupied with their own affairs and unaware of the significant event that was occurring.

    • Linda said

      That’s quite interesting! I think we are onto something Sept -Oct. possibilities!

    • blic said

      y’know the bible doesn’t specify the day because it’s not important. however satan was there and knows the day. makes you wonder about the choice of 9-11 for the blood sacrifice carried out on that day.

    • Linda said

      now that’s a thought. To the masons numbers are very important and 11 is one of them. Something they all share with Muslims and BHO (Black masonic Order)!

  3. GBT said

    Rabbi Jonathan Cahn did a wondeful teaching on the history of Christmas. His therory is that Christ was probably born in either March or April.
    We may never know but regardless the majority of Americans don’t appear to be too concerned about the true meaning of Christmas.
    I pray that the Lord would forgive our nation!

    • Linda said

      I listened to a teaching comparing John’s conception (his fathers priestly duty timing and returning home) and Mary’s conception & visit and it was around Oct. possibly late/Halloween. Need to refresh info. That would make for why Satan wants such worship and sacrifices on Oct31st! I’m sure this date Dec. fits with the rest of the pagan “Christianizing” by Constantine.

    • I can’t wait to ask Jesus in person, not that He would exhalt such things as a birth date. Just from a purely curious thing, for I praise Him everyday!

  4. John Michael said

    Great Bun LA. I wrote about this yesterday, “Black Friday” indeed. Darkness has overtaken people and in the name of Jesus.

    • Eric W. said

      Now it’s Greed Thursday with all these stores opening Thanksgiving evening.

      It’s way out of control. It’s a chicken and egg circular argument as far as where it starts and where it ends but really. I’m only 36 even I can remember a time in a huge city like Miami no less where it used to be stores were closed for holidays and weren’t pulling this all night nonsense and the rest of it.

      Guess what? You’re not going to compete and beat the Internet so you may as well use it as a tag team partner instead. There’s just no call for ANY of this.

      Of COURSE there are ALWAYS going to be types of people that will be there no matter what.

      It really went off the cliff with the 08 crash as far as this overblown consumerism has gone.

      When you have employees literally falling over in exhaustion that’s slavery.

      We don’t own them. We rent them. It’s ALL wrong.

    • Linda said

      Greed Thursday! Yep! I remember when they were fighting to keep stores open on Sundays! The day of rest, hardly anthing was open. “We’ve come a long way Baby!”

    • Eric W. said

      And ended up nowhere good, sadly.

    I have never seen such a large portion of the population “that I would consider truly spiritually Christian’s” who are down right depressed over the re-election of Obama. I have read more prophecy articles that state if Obama isnt the AC then he will shortly help usher him in.

    This country and this world are in free-fall. In my opinion we have all lost Hope for any type of future or real correction. The economy is in free fall. Commodities are in shortage. War is everywhere. Pornography is beyond recognition. Drug and Alcohol use are everywhere. Unemployment is at all times highs. Food stamps are at all time highs.

    People are just emotionally surviving day by day in my opinion. They will do anything to escape their emotional realities.

    Paul Harvey was Right On in 1965

    The prophetic words of Paul Harvey in 1965…..did the devil take his advice?

    In 1965, commentator Paul Harvey wrote this essay about how he would destroy us (America) if he were the devil. Remember this was 47 years ago.

    “If I were the devil, I wouldn’t be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree—Thee. So I’d set about however necessary to take over the United States. I’d subvert the churches first—I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the
    wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.” To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square”. And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to pray after me, ‘Our Father, which art in Washington…’

    And then I’d get organized. I’d educate authors on how to lurid literature exciting, so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting. I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies and vice versa. I’d pedal narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

    If I were the devil I’d soon have families that war with themselves, churches that war that themselves, and nations that war with themselves; until each in its turn was consumed. And with promises of higher ratings I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flame. If I were the devil I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, and neglect to discipline emotions—just let
    those run wild, until before you knew it, you’d have to have drug sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

    Within a decade I’d have prisons overflowing, I’d have judges promoting pornography—soon I could evict God from the courthouse, and then the schoolhouse, and then from the houses of Congress. And in His own churches I would substitute
    psychology for religion, and deify science. I would lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls, and church money. If I were the devil I’d make the symbols of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.

    If I were the devil I’d take from those, and who have, and give to those wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. What do you bet I could get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich? I would question against extremes and hard work, and Patriotism, and moral conduct. I would convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging more fun, that what you see on the TV is the way to be. And thus I could undress you in public, and I could lure you into bed with diseases for which there is no cure. In other words, if I were the devil I’d keep on doing on what he’s doing. Paul Harvey,
    good day.”

    • Eric W. said

      Yup, but Christians wallowing and depressed over a secular political situation where there were two non choices need to step back and look at the big picture and see where it’s all headed prophetically. We’re just another step closer to one world government and economy and I take an archon like Kissinger at his word. He said Obama was their guy to do it…I believe him. That old fossil and his fellow archons intend to be here to see it so it isn’t going to be another 20-30 years.

      Common sense tells anyone that our current situation simply isn’t tenable for too much longer. Morals. Economy. You name it.

    • phebz64 said

      Excellent Bun today! Every day you see proof that the humanity in humans is all but lost…people have no respect for anything worthwhile and the selfishness you see everywhere is sad. We that believe in the Bible knew these times were coming and it is still shocking to see!

      Wow Richard, thanks for sharing this article!! Was he looking into a Crystal Ball?? It’s scary how he has everything so spot on, and it all happened within a generation! People who listened to this when it was originally broadcast probably thought he needed to put the bottle away! I don’t think anyone at that time thought things would get this bad in such a short amount of time. Thanks goodness we know these things mean our Savior will soon be coming to rescue us from this horrible state our world is in!

    • Eric W. said

      Harvey nailed it for sure.

    • Linda said

      Eric that weasel Kissinger CFR member said BHO should be the President of the world and time will tell, sure ‘s beginning to look that way!
      Nome, I remember how divided the country was during the Clinton’s reign and dark and scary, dead people showing up anywhere resistence to them happened. FBI missing files=enemies hit list. The vulgar women who wanted to be Monica and the viscious posts by followers to those who dare differ, I too knew it was over, then Bush came in on the Religious Right coat tails (ah the Rel. Right!) playing Christian and did we dare think maybe a change=NO!!! Just another global phoney to keep us on the one path to the NWO and One world Religion. (like Romney) The HS showed me then that they have 2 versions with one path as the winds blow they switch between the 2, but both take you to the same outcome inch by inch it’s a cinch! I decided I willl send out the usual petitions ag. illegal Invasion, Parental Rights, etc. but knowing they fall on deaf ears for the most part. It’s time to get deep into the word of GOD and to develop our Faith in GOD and to witnes as HE leads. This ship is going down! Our ship is going UP one of these days!

    • Eric W. said

      Amen to that. There’s a LOT of smokescreen and distraction out there.

      I’m not discouraged. Sure I hate a lot of what I see. Don’t get me wrong.

      But in a strange way I’m encouraged despite all of this because I know the Lord promised our redemption draweth nigh when we see ALL of these things happening and at the same time and with ever increasing frequency.

      Keep praying, stay in the Word, and keep looking up. :)

    • JLL said

      Pastor J.D. Farag of Calvary Chapel Kaneohe, HI, does a weekly prophecy update. His post-election message had a take on the election I haven’t seen elsewhere:
      “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuIzKG-_0w4&list=UUkz3m787ygph7Uvjxzngl-g&index=4&feature=plpp_video”

      Somewhere online there’s a transcript (I copied some of it for a friend, and it should be easy to find it you search his name and a sentence from below):

      The sooner a Christian finally accepts that this world — nay, even this country — will be anti-Christ, anti-Israel, and pro- everything that goes against the Lord Who is the God of Israel, the better it will be. The sooner we come to that stage, that place where we accept the reality of the world in which we live and how the Bible describes for us that this will be the reality in which we live at the end, before His return, the sooner we accept that and embrace that, and even — dare I say — celebrate that, the better it will be.

      I think it’s that which separates the joyful Christian from the miserable Christian. The sooner we can get to that place of accepting the reality: this is no longer a Christian nation….

      But I believe that God wants our hope in Him and not in a candidate…. I honestly don’t know what it’s going to take for Christians to finally accept that getting our man in office … will not turn this nation back to Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior….

      Even if we do faithfully pray, the question is, Are we praying the right way?

      … By that I mean that I’m not so sure that our prayers are compatible with the word of God. And I say that by virtue of America’s conspicuous absence from Bible prophecy…. Praying the wrong way for this great nation may in fact bring one dangerously close to what’s called Kingdom Now theology, also known as Dominion theology….

      Both of these false teachings teach that Christians must have dominion over the Earth before the Lord can return to set up His kingdom on Earth. And what comes packaged with this theology, this false doctrine, this false teaching is that we’ve got to get Christians into political office, into positions of power so that we can have dominion, thus ushering in the Lord’s kingdom here on Earth.

      Believing that and praying that may in fact be compatible with what 1 Timothy 4:1 describes, when Paul writes to Timothy, as “deceptive doctrine of demons,” … this false teaching that says we can have heaven on Earth. Or as one famous pastor of a very large church authored a book … Your Best Life Now….

      I want to come back to the reasons I believe that this year’s elections are perfectly in line with what the prophecies we have in our Bibles say…. If we will understand this, how everything is perfectly on schedule according to God’s prophetic schedule, then and only then will it give us hope….

      [He gives the Biblical characteristics of the Smyrna and Philadelphia churches, the churches of our time. Smyrna was the persecuted church, and as a result they had tenacious faith and effectual prayer. Philadelphia had little strength: a good thing, as it promotes reliance on the Lord. And God placed before them an open door for evangelism "that no man can shut" -- not even a President.

      Next, he imagines a situation where we elected a born-again Christian as President.]

      Now: what happens? Well, wouldn’t that lend itself to a strong church instead of a little-strength church? Wouldn’t that lend itself to a strong church instead of a persecuted Smyrna church? Wouldn’t it also bolster up this Dominion theology, Kingdom Now theology, which has no legitimate place in the pages of our Bibles?

      I’m going to take it further and assume that our newly-elected born-again Christian President also reinstates his unfettered support for Israel. And the United States of America supports Israel and doesn’t support the quote-unquote “Palestinians.”

      Would we be celebrating today instead of lamenting like some are today, if this were the case?
      … We’d be celebrating because not only has he saved the soul of America as the hope of the Earth….

      Excuse me, Mr. Presidential Candidate: America is not the hope of the Earth! Jesus is the hope of the Earth! Not America! And it won’t be America in the end who will stand with Israel: Israel, my Bible tells me, stands alone! And it will be God who will save His people!

      … You know, this Save-America, this Hope-of-the-Earth, this Save-Israel, this — it all sounds good. I mean, doesn’t it sound like the best of all worlds? And doesn’t it sound like that Christian Utopia?

      I would submit that this scenario has an enormous problem Biblically. The reason is that nowhere in the pages of Scripture do you have the United States saving Israel in God’s prophetic plan. Only God does. I’m talking about the end now, eschatologically. The fact of the matter is that nowhere in the pages of Scripture, eschatologically, do you even have the mention of the United States, period. The United States is not even in the Bible at the end. Which indicates that something happens to the United States of America in order for the most powerful nation on all of the Earth to not even be mentioned in the Bible.

      So for one to impose this Christian President and a strong America with it, will in effect delay the Lord’s coming in the Rapture for His Bride….

    • LookingUp said

      Jesus knew the destruction of Jerusalem was coming, and when I read Matthew 23:37, I get the feeling that His heart was breaking. Did He know it was part of God’s plan and would fulfill prophecy? Yes. I think the same thing happened for many believers after the election.

    • Pudding said

      JLL, Good post, Pastor J.D. Farag summed it up.

      LookingUp, “I think the same thing happened for many believers after the election.” That’s how I felt.
      One can always hope for better, but God knows whats best.

      …And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

    • LookingUp said

      Yes, Pudding. “Thy will be done, Lord, nothing more, nothing less, nothing else.”

    Are Black Friday Riots A Preview Of The Civil Unrest That Is Coming When Society Breaks Down?

    Michael Snyder
    Economic Collapse
    Nov 24, 2012

    If Americans will trample one another just to save a few dollars on a television, what will they do when society breaks down and the survival of their families is at stake? Once in a while an event comes along that gives us a peek into what life could be like when the thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted is stripped away. For example, when Hurricane Sandy hit New York and New Jersey there was rampant looting and within days people were digging around in supermarket dumpsters looking for food. Sadly, “Black Friday” also gives us a look at how crazed the American people can be when given the opportunity. This year was no exception. Once again we saw large crowds of frenzied shoppers push, shove, scratch, claw, bite and trample one another just to save a few bucks on cheap foreign-made goods. And of course most retailers seem to be encouraging this type of behavior. Most of them actually want people frothing at the mouth and willing to fight one another to buy their goods. But is this kind of “me first” mentality really something that we want to foster as a society? If people are willing to riot to save money on a cell phone, what would they be willing to do to feed their families? Are the Black Friday riots a very small preview of the civil unrest that is coming when society eventually breaks down?

    Once upon a time, Thanksgiving was not really a commercial holiday. It was a time to get together with family and friends, eat turkey and express thanks for the blessings that we have been given.

    But in recent years Black Friday has started to become even a bigger event than Thanksgiving itself.

    Millions of Americans have become convinced that it is fun to wait in long lines outside retail stores in freezing cold weather in the middle of the night to spend money that they do not have on things that they do not need.

    And of course very, very few “Black Friday deals” are actually made in America. So these frenzied shoppers are actually killing American jobs and destroying the U.S. economy as well.

    The absurdity of Black Friday was summed up very well recently in a statement that has already been retweeted on Twitter more than 1,000 times…
    “Black Friday: because only in America people trample each other for sales exactly one day after being thankful for what they already have.”

    It has gotten to the point where it is now expected that there will be mini-riots all over the country early on Black Friday morning each year. The following are a few examples

      So true we ate around noon, my daughter a Big Box mgr. ate and I quietly cleaned up while she tried to sleep a while before having to go in at 10:00PM for midnight opening. (she worked from 10PM Thurs. to 3PM Friday) Target was already in full swing at 8:00PM. So much for a peaceful day of reflection on our blessings! Funny thing is she said now they have a big lull from 3:00AM-9:00AM so what’s the gain=CRAZY! One more way to get GOD out of the picture, thank who? We already know the world they are creating will not be liked by most. It is a DARK time and getting darker FAST!

    Sadly you are so right L.A. I do Home Schooling now and every thing we read and do points to the magnificence of GOD’s creative power and man’s corruption. I constantly say and “yeah we evolved from hap-chance slime” (sarcasm added) and my grandson laughs. How can anyone accept such blatant ignorant bias=to remove GOD from their conscience! My daughter is a retail store mgr for a Big Box store, as we put up her tree she came across packed cards. Then she said they say Jesus I can’t give those out! Corp. policy (might upset someone). How sad all that’s left is greed as you say! CHRISTmas w/o Christ! We long ago gave up giving gifts to each other, I taught my grandson his Birthday is Feb., whose Birthday is it! Jesus, the gifts and adoration belong to Him alone. We decorate and cheer how great a gift it is to receive His Salvation and Grace. We don’t do it for winter soltice or any other pagan, greedy reason, and the ones who see it different must obey their conscience! He thinks santa=satan! How true.

    I heard a story once about an African Refuge who never worried about anything. He had what I would call true faith that God would provide in all things. The man wasn’t married and yet it didnt seem to bother him. He had no real education yet he always seemed to find jobs.He never seem to have food at his house yet he was always fed one way or another. The man prayed continuously and thanked God for all things in all things. Friends would say that you always see that mans head bowing in prayer all the time.

    He was also never angry. If something bad had happened to him he would say its Gods will with a smile and follow it with something better will come my way.

    One time he was short on his rent he prayed and the money mysteriously showed up in his account. However stories like this
    were the main stay in this man’s life. God always provided.

    What I wouldn’t give to have this mans mentality. To just be spiritually happy would be like winning the lottery. This week I couldn’t help but think how I would honor the Lord if I won the lottery. How pathetic.

    Why is it that we just cant be spiritually happy in all things regardless of our circumstances?

      We live in America and we have been taught to grab the gusto and we also we’re taught to be SELF reliant. That’s the the hardest part when coming to GOD we shed the sel reliance and our flesh fights back with that same gusto! I love to read Paul’s Gospels! Grace!

    Was considered a good black Friday here. Killings were down, last year we had 6 related Black Friday murders, this year only 4, things are looking up.

    • Matt, I know you bared your soul after the election. The american dream died for me after the early 90’s election. And instead our awesome Sovereign turned my patriotism to His rule in the Kingdom of Heaven. Every day, His gift’s unfolding far transcends what we’re leaving behind in this world.

      When things hurt too much we put on thicker skin. You first adopted a cartoon yeti gravatar. And now the current gigantopithecus. Me, my online character has fire and spill proof naugahyde. Those that dish it out have to be able to take what comes.

      I reckon if things get to pointed — you’d drop the “wrestling mask.” I was happy to jump back into the ring when you wrote you were ready for me. Double-ought buck shot in that cannon too, with the old science-so- called and religious witchhunt blast & lambast.

      As long as you’re singing “sympathy for the devil” with that mask on, I’m willing to go the next round. I was rolling on the “successive generations of nihilism” skewed quote. Almost had to say touché.

      Sounds like you’re back in Houston(?) and out of the sticks. Definitely some places it’s best to “walk softly and carry a big stick.” I’d grant it’s far safer in the mountains. Wouldn’t be surprised though if those gangsters in their tribes had that old sasquatch spirit.

      As regards yeti and their kin — gotta say the same as for dragons — there ain’t no such thing as a good one. For all we know the thousands of folks that go missing each year are their delicacy. Oops! Sorry, thought I heard someone ring that bell. That’s what happens when you get your ears boxed. 8-)

      I was never in the “sticks” and I got your opinion of dragons and Bigfoot, it’s well noted, however misinformed as it may be.
      My gravatar should not concern you. They are an interest of mine hence the gravatar. I change it up from time to time. You find the creature evil I feel the jury is still out on that question. It is an interesting question however, whether or not “Bigfoot” is evil. To say a beast is evil, one has to assume that the creature understands the moral code of good and evil, but chooses to do evil. So, what is it? Is it an animal? Is it a species of human? Is it paranormal? Or, is it possible that it is a mixture of all the above? We won’t know that answer until one is caught and studied, if that day ever comes. Quite possibly they could be a mixture of “all the above”.
      It seems to be more than an animal but far less than human. Without having the character or moral code of humans, it seems to repeatedly demonstrate super-human qualities. So, is it evil? Perhaps, but, until further notice – it is best to continue enjoying the great outdoors, but never fail to exercise caution and good judgment at every turn and always use the buddy system. ;)

  10. Jesus said that if you have two coats, give one to a man who has none. He didn’t say you should have none at all yourself. Jesus was preaching against EXCESS. The people in line at the Big Box could not be satisfied with my twelve year old RCA television, but I am satisfied. On my twelve year old television I watched one of the greatest Christian dramas I have seen, on Thanksgiving night (after turkey at my son’s neighbor’s house). What I watched was the twenty-fifth anniversary concert production in London of “Les Miserables.” This is a story of redemption and sacrifice, and also delineates clearly how some people lose faith in God through experiencing the world, and others gain that faith by the same experience. Talk about TV being used RIGHT!
    But what to those in line at Big Box watch? Well, maybe they can’t afford the price of “cable”, so let’s have compassion for them….as Jean Valjean learned to have compassion for the poor and sinful in “Les Miserables.”
    There is a Hollywood production of “Les Miserables” coming for Christmas. I doubt if it will be as “pure” as the PBS production, but I am hoping the message will still be there. But who will tell the poor and sinful to go to that movie rather than some junk they are used to?
    Tell them if you get a chance.

      I own one, my daughter bought it for me and pays the service fee, an iPhone to boot (used her upgrade crdts). I rarely use it, but I did put it on a speaker and listened to Christmas music low in the background as I worked.. It was nice. I babysit and connect via it whenever. I have a Bible app. also on it. A phone is what you make of it as anything else. Even eating can be an idol just look at the over weight people/children around you! Everything in balance. I think for the mob it very well may be an idol. Don’t be quick to judge people esp. on the blog! as idol worshippers because they have a phone=just sayin!

    • I don’t judge a phone. It is only an idol depending on who is holding it. Just cuz I stand next to a cow, doesn’t mean its idolotry.

      I think the bigger picture is that if we have an emp strike or our infastructure gets destroyed, there will be some who’s worlds come crashing down and others who declare its another day with God in control.

  13. Pudding said

    Well for those that have evolved from the ape branch they have a greater excuse to ignore the law of God, where there is no law there is no sin therefore there is nothing to repent for. Even so the law remains and those pesky creationist way heavy upon their consciousness, notwithstanding creation itself and the Godhead who holds it together. Bound by predestination man must choose to serve the God who created him or become a God unto himself and serve the God of evolution. In evolving the law is flexible to empower itself. God`s unchangeable law is written in stone and finally in the heart permanently.

    Nome isn’t the Dominionist Movement and the Religious Right basically the same for the most part. I know the ate James Kennedy was a Dominionist and he est. the Knocksville something college where Pastors all signed a document against Israel=boycotts etc. I forget the exact name, I also learned that info through Bibleline/Hank Lindstrom probably info there. link in an above post.

    • JLL said

      No, most of the Religious Right is definitely not Dominionist.

      I don’t know how much is.

      It may depend how narrowly you define “Religious Right”?

    • Linda said

      meaning leaders

    • blic said

      i find the religious right very dominionist leaning if not downright sold on it. they confuse patriotism with Godliness to a fault. like they have to fix things before Jesus comes back. it’s too much about political solutions to spiritual problems.

    • Linda said

      blic this is what I have witnessed, bringing in the Kingdom, “making the Bride w/o spot and wrinkle”. First we are the church/BODY of Christ he being the Head, not the Bride, how does the BodyHead be the Bride & marry the Bride; if they’d do a study and keep scripture in context they will find it’s Israel the wife(Bride).

      They have gotten to the point that if scripture is being promoted and exposes their errors you get boycotted from their media venues!

    • LookingUp said

      Blic, I think there are differences between Dominionists and the Religious Right. Dominion folks are involved globally while the RR is focused on America. From what I know of Dominion theology, they are involved with spiritual dominion – binding, loosing, rebuking, taking dominion over demons, etc. The RR has always been more invovled with the political process. I’m sure there are crossovers on both sides, but those are the main differences to me.

    • blic said

      i didn’t say they were the same. very similar though.

    • LookingUp said

      Yeah, I know you didn’t say they were the same. I also think the purpose of the RR is not to take over the US politically and fix it so that Christ can return. The people I know who would be labeled “RR” are political activists in an attempt to be good stewards of the freedom we have as well as to be salt and light in the growing darkness of this country.

    • Linda said

      yes the “people’ I mean the top dog leaders!

    • blic said

      they didn’t do to good. supporting reagan and the bushes was not good stewardship. they look more like dominionists.

    • Linda said

      Yep! How can they reverance Reagan and he was at the Bohemian Grove! Some youth group leader, like Hillary’s who led her to !Communism!

    • LookingUp said

      I was talking about their motives, not the results. Granted, the world continued down the road to globalism under their leadership, but there were some good things that came out of those administrations, too – like the destruction of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the USSR. We will never know how many of those people came to know the Lord because of the freedom that resulted. We will also never know how many babies are alive today because those presidents stood strong against abortion, and they also supported the traditional family.

      There are no perfect people so no perfect presidents. Satan is the god of this world and manipulates things to his plan. We know what that plan is, and we know ultimately he will be defeated. Meanwhile, I am responsible to stand for righteousness when ever and where ever I can; God is responsible for the results.

    • Derek and Sharon Gilbert have had plenty to say on dominionism. The basic idea being that the Kingdom of Heaven on earth will be established by putting people in places of influence in the “Seven Mountains” of art, business, education, family, government, media, and religion.

      That’s not what’s happened with me. The reality of the Kingdom of Heaven within was direct. So instead of being a top down influence, it’s an individual inner awareness of the spiritual connection we share with Christ through the Holy Spirit. He’s the Vine, we the branches. The net cast into the world is that spiritual “heart to heart” connection with Him and others in His Kingdom. Outwardly, I don’t expect a formal outward extension of His Kingdom to earth till He comes in Revelation 19.

      What’s the impact? I no longer identify with any nation or denomination on earth. The greater assembly of saints in Heaven with Christ is the only true church. Here on earth, there’s still the question of who will fall away in the sense of apostasy. The Kingdom of Heaven is the only eternal and unshakeable Kingdom. Christ’s city is my home. Christ’s body is my church. Christ’s people are my people. Christ’s house is my house. Christ’s family is my family. His Kingdom is my Kingdom. His creation in my creation.

      All that’s gone before of my old life is dead, nailed to the cross with Christ. Like the shell of an egg or the case of a pupa, it’s served the purpose, but is not a pleasant place to try to live. My identity is completely in Christ.

      It’s very clear to me why the empires of Nebuchadnezzer’s dream are toppled. That reality already exists within me. What’s left is like the thrashings of a headless chicken, which considering their supposed relationship to dinosaurs, makes me think of a headless T-Rex — or headless dragon.

      There is no longer any urgency in my life. I have no expectations for the political parties or rulers. Same goes for the denominations. Take for instance marriage. I don’t care if the state or the apostate churches redefine marriage. Without Christ it’s not a covenant marriage. Hence the high failure rates — like of commitment and spiritual support. Same for racial issues and discrimination. In the Kingdom of Heaven there’s neither Greek nor Jew, male nor female, bond nor free. The citizens of the Kingdom are part of it’s army regardless of sex, ability, etc. That’s the ideal for the public arena. In the family of God we can celebrate all the special distinctions we have as part of our creation. We can go on and on and on and have all forever to do so.

      And as for warring with other humans — they need rescue — from the original rebels against God, the fallen angels, their consorts, and their offspring. Just as I needed rescue as a result of my own sin and rebellion against God. As is Christ’s good pleasure to do.

      Hopefully you see that more and more I have no expectations for worldly institutions or programs. Not retirement. Not education. Not journalism. None of it. They’re all like trying to live in the middle of a disaster zone. When the order is given to evacuate (“Come out of Her my People”) it’s not smart to stick around. Think about all the rebel angels being dragged down and imprisoned on earth when satan is cast out. Don’t forget “great babylon” is a cage.

      Personally, I believe the dominionist are trying to take the Kingdom of Heaven by force. We’ve been told that we must be born again to enter the Kingdom. Presently, it’s a spiritual Kingdom. That doesn’t mean it can be obtained or extended physically — apart from Christ. In the Name of Jesus Christ who is also Yeshua Messiah — they must cease and desist. Those that can’t serve as good examples can certainly serve as bad examples … which is like saying there are many vessels in a great house. These days those would be garbage bags and porcelain toilets. It’s not pretty what happens to those that try to establish dominion in the world apart from the Holy Spirit. Downright monstrous….

      I don’t think that the Russians who were saved and are still coming to the Lord because of that window of opportunity think it was all for show. If you had been living in East Berlin when the Wall coming down and got to spend the rest of your life in freedom instead of under the boot of the communists, I doubt you would think it was all for show. The world has been getting worse since the fall and will continue to do so until Christ comes back, a very anti-Dominion statement. No president can ban abortion, but they can prohibit paying for them with tax dollars and prohibit them from being performed on military bases which they did.

    • blic said

      any president can ban abortion via executive order. it just takes a christian! and yes their freedom was through trickery. they were a counted cost of pulling the charade.

    • Personal opinion. All those raids and strikes in Gaza city, including clearing out the tunnels, was a perfect opportunity to get tons of intel. Intel which might tie Hamas to Iran. They might not have pushed the ground offensive because they found what they’re looking for.

      Then Israel need no longer be concerned about a pre-emptive strike or Iran making a first strike. Especially if they can substantiate a planned WMD offensive by Hamas based both on intel and what might have been captured.

      And Iran likely knows that. As soon as any intel is confirmed and presented to the powers that be — don’t be surprised if Israel (with full justification) strikes Iran hard. Shock and Awe hard. And possibly anyone else tied to Hamas. Which then explains more about Mursi…. but all sheer speculation on my part.

      I googled “bigfoot dna” and got a bunch of results that included this info. It will be interesting seeing how it plays out.

      JLL, I’m glad you brought Bigfoot up again today. I was too late to join in Matt’s discussion yesterday and think there are important issues that need to be addressed that aren’t limited to BF. Please bear with me while I try to catch up.

      Jesus said we can and should judge the actions of men because they tell us what’s in their heart:

      Luke 6:43-45 “For there is no good tree which produces bad fruit, nor, on the other hand, a bad tree which produces good fruit. For each tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they pick grapes from a briar bush. The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart.”

      We are told to expect godless men and false teachers to invade the Church to deceive believers and to be on the lookout for them. We are to reject those people, their lies and satanic activities and warn others about them – not direct people to them; we are to expose the garbage, not encourage people to visit the dump. If we mistakenly do that and other believers tell us about it, we should say, “Thank you (JLL, Nomemoleste, Pudding); I didn’t know” instead of going on the defensive and trying to justify what we did.

      I am concerned for you, Matt. Your excitement about getting to hear from William Henry, a fortune teller who reads tarot cards, is disturbing. It seems that you love having your ears tickled by a deceiver and embracing his myths. His comments about the Ark of the Covenant being part of “a component of a larger supernatural teleportation device that will be deployed at Judgment Day to bring world peace” should have alerted you to his true nature. Not only is it counter to Scripture, it is also insulting to the Lord. World peace will be brought by Jesus Christ at His return, not by some box.

      The virus of deception is released and spread by pride and ignorance; the only protection against it is a spirit of humility and knowing the Word. None of us understand it all perfectly, so we are to work together as a body to both give and receive knowledge of the truth. Iron sharpens iron, and we are to test everything against Scripture. I am thankful for the people on this blog who, while thinking outside the traditional box, have a strong understanding of the Word. We live in deceptive times, and if we don’t know the truth, we won’t recognize the lie.

      2 Tim 4:2-4 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.

      2 Peter 2:1-2 There will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord. These teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.

      1 John 4:1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false teachers have gone out into the world.

      Acts 20:30 Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves.

      2 Peter 3:17 Therefore, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of lawless men, but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

      Oh my, LookingUp — I missed the whole last two-thirds of that discussion.

      Matt, the reason I said William Henry isn’t a Christian is because I listened to him a few times on C2C over the years; they had given him a neutral write-up (i.e. not obviously New Age) and the topics were of interest to Christians (like the Ark of the Covenant). Unfortunately the positions he takes are definitely not Christian, which is why I say he’s not a Christian. No, I don’t know exactly what those positions are; but I eventually learned to remember William Henry’s name and filed him in the Not Christian! Do not turn on C2C or you’ll regret it! ***shudder*** file in my mind.

      My standard for accepting someone as a Christian is that they need to believe Jesus is God and the Son of God. William Henry did not fall in that category. Neither do Jehovah’s Witnesses or Mormons (though I’ve been told some Mormons are Christians — i.e. don’t believe as their religion says). I see no evidence Mr. Obama is a Christian, nor his former “pastor” (who used to be Nation of Islam — or maybe it was Black Muslim).

      I don’t know where this Pastor stands, but I think he got this one right! He needs our prayers!

      jll, i would consider those who “don’t believe as their religion says” not of that religion.

      No where did I say I am exited about hearing William Henry. Please show me where I said that? I had no idea who William Henry was until a few days ago. I said William Henry will be on Coast to Coast to discuss Ark of the Covenant. Did I say I was excited about that? I’m excited about the Black eyed kids show the day before, but not Ark of the Covenant or William Henry.
      Your accusations against me are disturbing.

      JLL, I didn’t know you have heard William Henry speak before. Your first post was unclear. It was a blank “he is not a Christian” statement. Wasn’t sure what you based that on. Since you have heard him speak, I assume you based your opinion of him on that. Thanks for clearing this up.

      Disclaimer: I only listened to the first minute and a half — but this is clearly a case of anti-Catholicism. Of course it’s possible to read the Bible and not believe it — atheists, non-believers, Bible-as-Lit profs, and people of all descriptions do so every day.

      Some are stubborn as opposed to open-minded, some are simply ignorant, etc., etc.

      And in the immortal words of Bill Clinton, “It all depends what the definition of possible is.”

      I watch him perform mass today on TV; the poor guy looks so feeble as frail. During the Mass he looked half asleep and had to be propped up by a few Cardinals. His voice was very weak and could hardly be heard. It was a very sad thing to see… After Mass they hoisted him up in the Popemobile and drove away, they were only going around 2 mph, but he looked scared to death and hanging on for dear life…. They need to find a way to strap him in there cause he looked like he was going to fall any second. I wonder what the crash rating is on the Popemobile?? Does it have airbags? It seems his health is beginning to decline.

      one of the reasons for the attack on ambassador stevens. he was gay.

    • Matt said

      I agree, there is every reason to believe Stevens’ lifestyle directly impacted the decision to attack the consulate and kill him…..It is well-known that Obama/Clinton have been funding gay rights in Muslim nations, the Czech Republic and other places. AIDS has slowed down in the west and that is one helluva kickback they aren’t getting from Big Pharma….. Obama and his Big Pharma pals are hoping to spread AIDS to the Muslim world so AIDS drugs and research funds can get funneled there. Follow the money, and you will find a liberal sitting there on his/her pot of gold. Folks in Pakistan and Yemen rioted and burned American flags when they learned Obama/Clinton was shoving gayness down their throats…. Why do think the poor man was gang raped? Muslims don’t do that as a rule. They were making a point. They will burn in hell for it, but still, connect the dots.
      The focus here is not on Stevens personal choice, but rather on the choice of the Obama Crew to incite Muslims to anger and then act like they are clueless….
      This sits squarely on the shoulders of Obama. Not only was it his fault to not provide security detail but after being notfied of the Ambassadors death, he went to las Vegas and then on to Letterman making little jokes. Then on to party with Beyonce and rapper jay Z. It is utterly disgusting behavoir for not just a president, but for a human being.
      This man in the White House has no emphaty for our people in the Middle East.

    • blic said

      everything going according to plan. not so much about money though. that is just a fortunate consequence for them. and believe me it ain’t just liberals sitting on pots o’ gold.
      the idea is to push homosexuality around the world because it is such a big part of satanism. satanism of course is the foundation of the one world religion. making it more acceptable
      to the fallen flock. sex church as i’ve heard it called will be a sensation till they are forced into the homosexual, beastiality, and pedophilic aspects. then too late!

    Most Christians have had the discussion of when Christ was actually born & I think we all agree it wasn’t on Dec 25th. Isn’t this common knowledge among us? I’m sort of suspect that the Pope is now coming forth to make this announcement to his subjects. Was he getting some flack from them about this or ??? The timing is uncanny.

    LA, while you’re on the subject of Christmas, why don’t we dwell on a cryptic verse of scripture from Revelation, chapter 11, verse 10 from the 1611 King James Bible.

    John the Apostle of Jesus described what he saw in the last days when the two witnesses of God are alive on Earth & begin their 3 1/2 years of warning the world that the wrath of God was at hand, that the need for repentence was great in that people should immediately turn to God with changed hearts because, obviously, they have turned toward the god of materialism.

    The Christmas season was not known about, nor observed in the 1st century when John wrote Revelation. The Bible does not mention whether the early church acknowledged any given time of the year when Jesus’ birth was remembered or observed.

    If it was, it was certainly not observed the way we do nowadays with a feast of self centered gluttony, greed, materialism, merchandising, etc. Change just two letters around in the name of Santa & you get Santa. What more of a hint could we need other than that to know that the devil has thoroughly corrupted the observation of Christmas.

    Satan has inverted the idea of Christmas, turning it’s meaning inside out with a blitzkrieg of massive retail sales & Hollywood films & TV shows which have acted as pass interference that has literally kicked Jesus Christ right out of Christmas, replaced with love stories, adoption stories, the acceptence of same sex marriage & other human emotional problems & conditions, mixed in the theme of Christmas, confusing the minds of nearly everyone. Christmas trees have replaced the Cross in most homes.

    When will the prophetic 3 1/2 year ministry of the two witnesses, the 2 olive branches of God, begin? In the month of June but the year is not currently known.

    How can we know their ministry will start in the sixth month of June? John said the 2 witnesses will prophesy 3 1/2 years, at which point the beast, the Satanically possessed antichrist of the botoomless pit, (a black hole?) will have the power to kill the witnesses.

    Please read Rev. 11: 3-13. In verse 10, when the dead bodies of the 2 witnesses are laying lifeless in the streets of Jerusalem for 3 1/2 days, during those days, the people of earth will rejoice, MAKE MERRY AND SHALL SEND GIFTS ONE TO ANOTHER because the 2 witnesses had called down plagues from Heaven to prove to a disbelieving world God meant business.

    How fascinating the idea that John used the words in Rev. 11:10, SHALL REJOICE, MAKE MERRY & SHALL SEND GIFTS ONE TO ANOTHER.
    This could only be describing the Christmas season. John had assumed the only reason the people of earth made MERRY & SENT GIFTS TO EACH OTHER was because they rejoiced over the fact the 2 witnesses had been finally killed after numerous assassination attempted had been made on their lives the previous 3 1/2 years.

    John wrote that the 2 witnesses would punish a world who not believe them & a world who had turned it’s collective backs on God by shutting up the skies so it wouldn’t rain during the days of their 3 1/2 years of their warning the world.

    John wrote that the bodies of the 2 witnesses would lay dead in the streets of Jerusalem for 3 1/2 days as all the nations watched. John did not describe a scene from the 1st century but a scene in real time from the 21st century. John, as he wrote Reveation, was experiencing an anomaly of a space-time continuum in that God teleported John’s psyche to a futuristic time period, the 21st century, which allowed John to actually time travel in order to view these events of the distant future from his distant past of the 1st century. John was one of the time travelers of the Bible.

    The fact that John saw all the people of all the world’s nations being able to watch the dead bodies of the 2 witnesses suddenly spring back to life when God resurrects them is certainly describing sattelite dish & cable TV news programs, such as we see on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, etc.

    John wrote that such fear suddenly filled the hearts & minds of the people of the earth when they saw this resurrection collectively at the same time. The people of the ALL the nations witness this resurrection simultaneously via sattelites so apparently it will not matter if it is daytime or nighttime when people witness this fearful miracle because everyone will see this at the same time on their TV sets.

    When the 2 witnesses rise into the daytime sky in a cloud and acsend to Heaven above Jerusalem, a great earthquake will strike the holy city. Will we witness this in our lifetime?

    Jesus said that the first generation who are born in a regathered Israel will still be alive on the earth when these scriptures should be fulfilled. We must carefully study the signposts of Bible prophecy because it is unfolding before our eyes even now.

    Amazing what animals we can become. This was black friday madness was brought to national attention a few years back with fighting over the “tickle me Elmo” doll. Is it uncanny timing that the Elmo puppeteer is in trouble, accused of being a pedophile. The election was just another example of people voting selfishness over what was the right thing to do.

    • Matt said

      Back when I was a teenager I worked at a Toys R US for a part time after school job, now this was back when the cabbage patch dolls first came out. I know full well what animals people can become…my job was to pass out these dolls. It got so bad they had to put me behind a steel cage for my safety as people were going crazy. More so if they got one they didn’t like. Remember these dolls were the first to come out with a birth certificate and these nuts acted like these dolls were real kids…talking to me as if I was the delivering doctor.
      It was quite bizarre how they acted over these dolls.

      My grandson has ADHD they tend to develope slower in their emotions and he sometimes confuses cartoon etc. behavior and such w/reality, things are done so real today. I remind him that’s fiction & he says “right”. He’s very imaginative & creative. I think we have many teens and adults who have never fully transitioned and they in some level think the stuff is real! (He doesn’t have peers nearby to challenge his maturity what’s their excuse?). Boy are they going to fall for the strong delusion!

  28. From prayer tonight… for your consideration.

    There’s a very straightforward way to keep the Sabbaths of God in order to explore what Christ has for each — every week in rotation.

    s — Passover Day
    m — Unleavened Day
    t — First Fruits Day
    w — Weeks Day (Pentecost Day if you prefer)
    t — Trumpets Day
    f — Atonement Day
    s — Tabernacles Day (or Booths Day…)

    PD, UD, FD, WD, TD, AD, BD

    Themes:
    PD — Christ’s Sacrifice as the Lamb Slain
    UD — Christ’s Burial and overcoming Hell
    FD — Christ’s Resurrection and Eternal Life
    WD — Christ’s Sending the Holy Ghost (7-Fold Ministries)
    TD — Christ’s Return to earth for His Bride
    AD — Christ’s Reign in the Millennial Kingdom
    BD — Christ’s Renewal of His Creation

    I’ve every confidence He has much to share about each.
    For me that’s usually meant how what He’s shown in one part of the Bible is connected to another.
    Practice is the point though. No doubt the Comforter (the Spirit of Truth) is very willing to Coach!

    Doesn’t matter that Christ wasn’t born December 25… but there is evidence that he may have been conceived around December 25. December 25 still has significance.

    Watching that 10 minute video above was really disturbing. You can easily see how this sort of thing can happen today in modern society…. given what it has become. I was watching a few documentaries the other night about the Roman Empire from it’s rise to it’s fall and all the signs that were going on within the Republic/Empire before it’s collapse. The whole time I was watching it I kept thinking America. Our parallels are so much like ancient Rome it’s scary.

    “Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Monday abruptly announced he was quitting politics, injecting new turmoil into the Israeli political system weeks ahead of general elections”

    This is such a shame. This Barak wasn’t a problem. I do SO wish that our Barack would quit politics and his attempts to dilute our Constitution. This is news is not a shocker though, if anyone knows anything about Ehud Barack, he is really not that hardcore of a poliitcal animal. He’s more like a Chris Christie after eatting a Softee donut. Netanyahu probably made a decision Barak differs with, most likely Iran.
