Day of Vengeance to come

As a young man I joined the Army at 17 years of age, in 1963 I went through Basic training and then advanced training. I was sent to a place called Dreux in the Normandy area of France. I was there when JFK was assassinated, we thought it was WW 3, we spent a week guarding the perimeter of the base, scared to death that the Soviet army would be coming. Of course that did not happen, but we were really scared. I can imagine that the Jews who had come with Ezra to rebuild the temple felt like that too. They had begun to rebuild the walls as well, and the people in the area around them began to make trouble for them.

Their fear made them stop working on the walls, they also began to assimilate into the people groupings around them, inter-marriage became something that they thought would lessen the animosity against them. They forgot that God had expressly forbidden that type of exercise, they were not to marry outside of their own people. They were not to worship anything other than Yahweh, God, and yet idol worship was beginning to infiltrate their society. The Levites who were the priests left the city and began to work their own farms because the people were not paying their tithes to the temple.

Nehemiah was called by God to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, and in the 2nd chapter we see how forceful he is in getting the people to do just that. In the reading today we see that the people were gathering together and they are ready to hear the word of God read. Ezra read from the book of the Law, but he read in Hebrew, the people no longer spoke Hebrew they had taken up Aramaic in its place. This was the language of the people around them and it was the common language of the day, they could not understand what Ezra was reading. So there were a number of Levites who were explaining in Aramaic what it was that was read, and what it was that Ezra was telling them.
Just an aside here, the reading was from morning until noon and the people stood to hear the words of God. They also worshiped with uplifted hands, then with their heads bowed and looking down at the ground.

As the people heard the word of God, they began to weep, realizing that they were doing wrong in the sight of God. Then they were told that this was to be a feast day to the Lord, that they were to celebrate, but note that their celebration was not only for themselves. They were to make sure that any who had need were to receive a portion from those who had plenty. Our reading ends with the words, “Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

In Psalm 19 we read about God, that the heavens declare His glory, the heavens is that great expanse that we can see at night. Thousands of stars, thousands of galaxies which we can’t see with just our eyes, but with a telescope we can begin to see it all. Some one once said that if it cost a penny to travel 1000 miles, it would cost $2.38 to travel to the moon, $930 to the sun, and $260 million to travel to the nearest star. The light we see from the Andromeda galaxy shows us where that galaxy was 2 million years ago, that is how long it takes the light from that galaxy to reach us. God created all of that expanse, so yes it does declare His glory.

David ends the psalm with words of praise to God and instruction for God’s people. “Psa 19:7-11 NKJV The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul; The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple; (8) The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes; (9) The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. (10) More to be desired are they than gold, Yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. (11) Moreover by them Your servant is warned, And in keeping them there is great reward.”

Now we come to Luke 4:14-21. All that has gone before in that which we call The Old Testament, leads up to what we find in the Newer Testament. Jesus has been preaching and teaching in Galilee, and he finally arrives in Nazareth, where he grew to manhood and he goes to the Synagogue on the Sabbath Day, that is Saturday, and he stood up to read. Reading from the scroll of Isaiah “Isa 61:1-2 NKJV “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; (2) To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn,”

Let us understand what Jesus is saying here, it is important for us to see that this which he has read is known as the Ministry of the Messiah and when Jesus says “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” He was in the clearest possible manner proclaiming that He was the Messiah of Israel. So what exactly was this mission, this ministry? He came to deal with the great problems of mankind throughout all of history.
Poverty: To preach the gospel to the poor.
Sorrow: To heal the brokenhearted.
Bondage: To proclaim liberty to the captives.
Suffering: Recovery of sight to the Blind.
Oppression: To set at liberty those who are oppressed.

He came to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.

The dawning of a new era for this world and its hurting multitudes, he presents himself as the answer to all the ills of the world. No matter what you may think of the ills of the world, Jesus is the answer to them all. It is also significant that he stopped reading with the words “to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” the rest of that verse is: “and the day of the vengeance of our God.” The purpose of the first coming of Christ was to proclaim the good news the acceptable year of the Lord. We are living in the present age of grace, we are still able to come before the throne of grace and receive salvation because Jesus came the first time. He came to die and to rise from death into newness of life, so that you and I could see that there was and is a newness of life for us.

The second part of that verse is not yet here, and so we have time to become children of God, it is still the acceptable year of the Lord, but the day is coming when that will end, and then comes the day of the vengeance of our God. None of us knows when that Day of Vengeance will come, but, if we truly believe that Jesus is who he said he is, then it will come! What does this mean for you and I in the time of acceptance? It means we have a job to do, it means that we are to stand in the gap against the forces of darkness, and proclaim that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, that sin leads to death, and Christ leads to life.

How can we stand, how can we come against the forces of darkness? We stand in the power of God, we have been promised the Holy Spirit and the gifts of ability to do the work that God has called each of us into. In 1 Corinthians 12 the apostle Paul speaks of the gifts of the Spirit. 1Co 12:27-30 NKJV Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually. (28) And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues. (29) Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? (30) Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret?

In the time of Nehemiah and Ezra, individuals would receive the Holy Spirit to help them do the tasks they needed to do, so we see these men and many prophets such as Isaiah and Jeremiah, working to bring the the people of God to understand that they were moving in wrong directions and needed to work for God not against God. We see the miraculous building of the walls under Nehemiah, and the preaching of the prophets as they struggled with the sins of the people. In today’s reading in the book of Nehemiah, we see that the people are grief stricken by the reading and teaching of the scriptures by Ezra and the Levites.

In the time of Jesus the Spirit still only came upon men as needed and left after the job was done. Today, and since the first Pentecost after the resurrection, the Spirit inhabits each of us as we become believers, children of God. The Spirit helps us and guides us into all righteousness, and away from that which is sinful. Helping to mold and shape us into all that God has for us to be, and giving us the power to work against the forces of evil in the world.

Many people think that we need to kill the people who are the army of ISIS, and I suppose that some of them will have to die in battle, but Jesus himself teaches that we are to pray for our enemies. Pray that they may come to see their wrong and change their ways, and come to Jesus as Savior and Lord. We are also to pray for those who lead our nation, whatever they may be doing and no matter whether we agree or disagree with them, we are to pray for them and ask the Lord to guide and help them to see the right.

I hear a lot of folks talking about how we have to elect the right people to congress and to the state government, yet we have been doing that for many years. Has anything gotten better? The truth is, if we are not involved in the Father’s business, by being in prayer, by standing against immorality of all kinds, by using the resources that God has provided to help the poor, to bring healing to the brokenhearted, proclaim liberty to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind and to set at liberty those who are oppressed. If we are not working to bring people into the kingdom, then we are against God, that is not a good place to be.

We live in a nation that is rushing headlong into hell, can we stand and work to stop that train? If we will not then our nation is doomed to continue on a path that leads to destruction, Jesus said we are to make disciples, have you talked to anyone lately about Jesus? Our purpose is to be the light of the world because we serve the risen Savior of mankind and our lives are to be a reflection of that light. Just as Luke, Paul, Nehemiah, Ezra, Isaiah, Jeremiah and a host of others through all of time have shown the light of God in their own lives and have had an affect on those around them, we too are to shine.
We too are to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, until the time comes when there is no more acceptance, only the day of vengeance of the Lord comes upon this world. We who have come to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, who have the Holy Spirit of God indwelling us, need to be standing for right, shining the light of Christ into the darkness of this world.

If there is anything in our own lives that goes against the word of God, we need to rid ourselves of that sin, asking God to cleanse us of all unrighteousness, and help us to be warriors for the kingdom. We who profess Jesus as Lord and Savior, should want to share the joy of our salvation with others, so that they too might become as we are, sinners saved by the grace of God. As we look at the stealing, rape, murder and just plain hatred toward one another, we need to first pray, and then act in accordance with the will of God, as it is plainly written in the scriptures.

All That I have commanded you 2a

Continuing with the Teaching on the Mount with Jesus instructing the Disciples, and of course by extension all who claim the name Christian today.

Mathew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God. In the King James Version the word sons is translated as children and rightly so, for all who are of the faith and work for peace are children of God. Chrysostom, who was Bishop of Constantinople and lived from 349 to 407 AD had this to say about Mathew 5:9: “The Blessings of Peace. Chrysostom: Here he not only responds that they should not feud and become hateful to one another, but he is also looking for something else and something more, that we bring together others who are feuding. And again he promises a spiritual reward. What kind of reward is it? “That they themselves shall be called sons of God.” For in fact this was the crucial work of the Only Begotten: to bring together things divided and to reconcile the alienated.” I have to agree with this word of truth. God sent His Son Jesus into the world that the world might be reconciled to God. It was the death of the perfect man, who was also God, to bring the possibility of reconciliation of the creature (man) with the creator (God). Thus when this reconciliation is completed, through our repentance and acceptance of the Lordship of Christ that we also receive peace in our innermost being. As the Spirit works within our lives to bring us closer to God, we also find a peace in our lives that has no comparison with any man-made peace. It is indeed the peace of God that passes all understanding.

In the gospel of John verse 14:27 Jesus says this to His disciples: “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” As He was preparing to leave this earth and return to His place in Heaven Jesus wanted the disciples to receive that which only He could give them. This gift is still available today to all who will accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. I hear many politicians talking about peace, but we seem to have nothing but war on every side, even amongst those same politicians. The only peace, the only true peace comes when we realize that God is in charge, and although things may be going awry, God is still in charge and will be with us and help us to come through the tough times we face, His peace is that which is truly beyond understanding.

This next one is troubling to many today Mathew 5:10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” We of course live in a nation where we are free to worship as we please, yet, there are those who are not allowed to worship as they wish, even in our nation today. There are those who want to change the Constitution, ridding it of the First Amendment, the one that says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” We have heard the cries of politicians and lawyers that the First Amendment should be done away with, it is antiquated and no longer fit for our generation. Others are saying that we, the Church, must change our way of reading and interpreting scripture to rid ourselves of the antiquated ideas we hold about morality. In many places in our world, people of faith are arrested and jailed for daring to read the words of the Apostle Paul who said in the epistle to the believers in Rome.
Romans 1:24 “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; “ speaking about immorality in all manner of works and beliefs. Here is the rest of the quotation: “being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.” This is through verse 32 in Romans chapter 1 (NKJV).

Note that this speaks of sin in all its various iterations. Understand that all that goes against God’s law, is sin and all is equally punishable by death, not as we understand death but a second death after we leave this life. There is an eternity and we choose by the way we live our lives how we will live in that eternity, heaven or hell. God does not consign you or me to heaven or to hell, the choice is our own. This should make those who speak of choice as they murder babies quite happy as you do have choice. Many times in scripture we see the choice offered, choose life or eternal damnation also life but divorced from God. Today we hear the word martyr bandied about as if blowing yourself up in order to kill others makes you a martyr. It does not make you a martyr, it makes you a murderer and a believer in a falsehood. True martyrdom comes to those who do not want to die, they want to live, but for God and for the sake of the gospel. The Apostles except John all died horrible deaths, from Peter who was crucified in Rome, to Thomas who was killed and reportedly drawn and quartered in India. They died for preaching the Love of God and brought many souls into a right relationship with Jesus Christ. They harmed none, they killed none, they loved all and tried to help them to find righteousness for themselves.

Next we come to the truth of working against the sinfulness of the world in which we live, Jesus says that we should rejoice when persecuted for the gospel: Mat 5:11-12 NKJV “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” Again let us hear from Chrysostom: “But to keep you from supposing that being slandered of itself makes people blessed, he has added two qualifications: first, that it happens for Christ’s sake, and second, that what is said be false. Do not expect to be blessed if you are being reviled for something evil, and what is being said is true.” All through the history of Judaism and Christianity there have been times when people were persecuted because they were speaking truth against lies and hatreds. Today it happens in many places in the world, and lest you think it cannot happen in the USA please do not believe that lie. Those who stand for the truth today are ridiculed and brought into court fined and castigated. Violence is becoming a way of life for those who hate the light of the gospel message. They have won some battles and are working now to win more, soon the Church in America will have to make a choice to either stand for the truth, or perhaps even suffer greatly or die.

During the “Arab Spring” we saw crucifixions in Egypt. Now with ISIS on the march across the Middle East, we see people beheaded and we have even seen beheadings in this country and will see more as time moves on.
Do not think that you are safe from persecution, if you truly believe that Jesus Christ is Lord, and you follow His teaching and avoid the things of this world, you will find less and less willingness for you to be able to speak the truth. Look at what has happened with the advent of Obamacare. This law has tried to force the Church to provide types of coverage that goes against the teaching of the Gospel. Forcing nuns to have to provide insurance which covers abortion for their fellow Sisters, they are still fighting against this craziness.

Now of course there will soon be people branded as bigots and brought up on charges of hate crimes for refusing to perform homosexual weddings, simply because it is against the belief structure under which these men have lived as Pastors. This has happened in many places in history and will come upon us as we stand for the truth. Rejoice in that persecution for you are not alone, they persecuted Christ and put him to death, if you follow in his footsteps, you may have to suffer as he suffered.

The next rule if you will of living the Christian life is this: Mat 5:21-22 NKJV “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘YOU SHALL NOT MURDER, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire.”

Chromatius was Bishop of Aquileia from 388 to 407 AD and wrote on this passage: “This is what the Lord said: “I have not come to abolish the law but to fulfill it.” In other words, to accentuate what was considered least; that is to say, to reform for the better the precepts of the law. For this reason the holy apostle says, “Do we, then, overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law.” The law commands us not to murder. The gospel commands us not to get angry without reason, that we may remove every root of sin from our hearts, because anger can even lead to homicide.”

Jesus came to fulfill the law, and not to abolish it, we need to be aware of all of the law and of those parts that truly are abolished by God, such as the dietary laws. But the Holiness Code which is what is being spoken of here, is still in effect today, we as Christians are to live holy lives because our God is holy. It is something we strive for everyday, and sometimes it is extremely difficult, but we strive anyway. The apostle Paul speaks of running the race that he might win the prize. That is our task to run the race that we might receive the word of Jesus Christ, “well done thou good and faithful servant.” If you are truly a follower of Jesus Christ, then it means that you will study and learn and become more and more like Christ every day of your life. Too many have fallen by the wayside, and have given up the race. Keep going brethren, for the goal is eternal life in the presence of almighty God.

4 Hostages, 1 Murder

President Obama has cemented whatever it was that he wanted to accomplish in regard to the Nuclear program in Iran. He also has insured the Nuclear Arms Race in the Middle East and the possibility of Nuclear conflagration sometime soon in that part of the world. In the process America seems to have forgotten that Iran holds 4 Americans in their prisons, and this president doesn’t seem to care one whit about that, he ignored the opportunity to say to Iran, “if you truly want this deal, you will immediately release those 4 men to us. Once they are safe in our hands outside of Iran, we will conclude our agreement with you.” Instead he said, they had nothing to do with Nuclear programs, yet when Iran asked for the ability to purchase ICBM’s from Russia, again mind you nothing to do with Nuclear programs, he gave them what they wanted. This is so egregious on the part of this President, after giving 4 Taliban generals from Gitmo in exchange for one traitor, he won’t even try to get the release of 4 of our men while giving away the store to the Iranians who are chanting even louder “Death to America, Death to Israel.”

While we are talking about the egregious actions of this President, let us take a moment to look at his history of intervention in various killings across this nation. There have been 4 incidents in which this president decided to get involved each had to do with a black person being killed by a white man. Starting with Martin in Florida, a case that was decided as self-defense on the part of the white man. Ending with Gray in Baltimore the President and the Department of injustice decided to get involved, and of course in the case of the horror in Charlotte with the racially motivated killing of 9 innocent black persons by one hateful racist. I have a problem with a President who will get involved with one and ONLY one type of killing, that of a black by a white, while totally ignoring the senseless murder of a young white woman walking with her father and being gunned down by an illegal (criminal) resident of a Sanctuary City in direct contravention of Federal law. We have heard NO word from this President nor from his INJUSTICE Dept. in regard to this horrific crime.

I seem to remember him claiming that he would be the President of ALL the people of this nation, yet it seems that ALL the people are black and anything else is not worth mentioning except in pejorative terms. His legacy will be that he has managed to BALKANIZE our nation he has set in motion a clear program of marginalizing those not of color in this nation as beneath his notice and those of color are near and dear to his heart. This is a terrible and completely a destruction of 250 years of work in this nation to try to bring us together as one people. He has single-handedly set back racial progress in this nation by at least 100 years. I grew up in an integrated neighborhood in NYC, today it would not be the same as it was 60 years ago when I was a young man. The we played together and worked together, today it is becoming more and more difficult to see that happening, simply because this President and his Injustice Dept. have set about destroying those who would work together to build a greater nation that what they inherited. I fear for this nation, I fear for the people who would try to undo the horrible damage this man has done to this country, it seems that we may very well have walked down this road perhaps a mile too far.

I sincerely hope that I am wrong in this assessment but I fear that I may be right. I pray that God still holds some love for this nation that once loved and revered Him, but that too seems to have vanished. We are a morally bankrupt nation these days and we continue on that pathway to destruction. What do you think? Leave a comment and tell me what you see for this nation.

Freedom to Think?

Well it seems that our society is becoming more of a populace of sheeple, while the government is becoming more like royalty. Walter Williams paints a really scary portrait that seems to be closer to reality than many think. Governments in the 20th Century killed more of their own people than all the wars of that century managed to kill. Yet we the people of this nation have learned nothing from that historical truth. We continue to allow our police departments to become para-military units, using gestapo type tactics to invade our privacy and even at times to kill innocent people. Soon the Federal government will have drones flying over our towns and how long will it be before those drones will be armed with rockets to be fired on “suspected” terrorists in our own backyards. The Government will of course tell us it is just protecting us from acts of terrorism.

The government now owns about 20% of our economy, that is they are spending money they did not earn, to ensure that the elites of our society, Senators and Congresspersons would continue to garner power to themselves, while the rest of us lose our freedoms. The intolerance of the progressive mindset is becoming such that you are not allowed to have any idea that does not conform to their ideal of what you should think. We see people viciously attacked, and even driven from their jobs by this hatred. I am amazed that even though Sarah Palin is no longer running for any political office, she is still vilified by so many on the left. Ann Coulter is another example, if she goes to speak at a college she is greeted with pie in the face and other disrespectful activities. Justice Clarence Thomas is constantly vilified by the left also.

The government wants to take away our rights to be who we are, they want to stop discourse in the public square. Homosexuals hatred of straight people knows no bounds. Sorry to tell you but homosexuality is not the natural course of life, nor is some of the other things that our society seems now hell bent on making normal. Even child pornography seems to be more acceptable today than it was just a few years ago. Please know this, God will not be mocked, the Apostle Paul wrote of sin and its consequences 2000 years ago, and here we see what happens when our society decides that it is ok for so-called musicians call women “whores” and treat other people as if they were subhuman, if they don’t kowtow to their way of living.

Our nation is becoming coarser and coarser every day, violence is only the tip of the iceberg, human sexual perversion is the reality in all too many places. This past week there was a teacher arrested for having sex with a student when she was 15 years old, and is now 4 months pregnant, and the same week a police officer was arrested for having sex with the same minor. Teachers are supposed to be role models yet they seem to think it is OK to have relationships that just a 50 years ago would have gotten them a long time in prison and might be they would have been killed for this kind of behavior. Police officers who act this way should also be put in prison for abusing their position.

It seems that we are really heading toward the complete disintegration of our society into anarchy, and yet our politicians continue to do as they please, and no one seems to care that our nation is now becoming a second rate nation instead of being the shining city on the hill of Ronald Reagan. Wake up people, our nation has been blessed by God for the last 200 + years, but that blessing is about to be taken from us. Repent! Recognize what you are becoming, children of Satan, instead of people of God!

Greed, Immorality, Cultural hatreds these are not the things that made our country great, these are the things that have torn down many societies over the centuries, wake up and change your ways, repent of the wrongs and reverse course, or face the consequences.

Hate Group Lists
March 20, 2013, 12:40 pm
Filed under: Culture, God | Tags: , ,

I find it amazing that the only people who publish hate group lists are liberal organizations, such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is really an activist group pushing for Homosexual rights and other liberal rights groups. I was reading about an attack on the Family Research Council which has been labeled as a “Hate Group” by the SPLC. The attack was made by GLAAD a homosexual advocacy group which labeled FRC as “one of the countries most dangerous hate groups.” Yet the only hate was the attack made against FRC and Josh Duggar who had applied for a position with FRC. Of course Josh is also a Christian and promotes Family Values which seems to be the “Hate” these people are talking about.

Now, as a Christian myself, I believe in those same family values. Marriage should be between a man and a woman, we are built to complement each other, to fit together if you will. My scriptures tell me that God made us this way so that the man will leave his mother and father and will cling to his wife and the two shall become one flesh. That is a beautiful picture, only possible in traditional marriage. I believe that children should be raised in a loving home, where the mother and father teach the child the things he or she will need to know to go into their own relationships. I also believe that the scriptures teach that homosexual activity is frowned upon by God, I am not taught to hate those persons involved in that activity, just to be unhappy that they are involved in the life style. I therefore act out of love, not hatred, to try to get folks involved in sin, (any sin), to meet Jesus and understand that Jesus died to free them from sin and to bring them into a right relationship with God.

The truth is that we are all sinners, we all condemn ourselves to eternal damnation, but through the grace of God we are freed from that penalty, if we admit we are sinners and ask for forgiveness through the blood of Christ. I don’t expect everybody to believe as I do, although I do want everyone to enter the Kingdom of Heaven and become a part of the family of God. After all we Christians, who are not perfect, just forgiven, are expecting a great supper one day with Jesus Christ as bridegroom and the Church as his bride, and we would hope that there will be myriads and myriads of celebrants there to enjoy that celebration.

The choice of course is always yours, God does not condemn, your decisions condemn you or bring you to salvation. I also think I might receive some hate mail in regard to this particular entry in my blog, but, I felt it necessary to set out the truth in all of this. We act out of Love, because God acted out of Love toward each of us. BTW, I will not deny that there are those who call themselves Christian, who are not acting in a Christian manner. I agree with those who stand against this anti-christian behavior. We who call upon the name of Christ, should act as Christ acted, not as the world acts. Please think about your position in life, what are your activities? Do you honor yourself and God by your actions, or are you still enthralled by the evil one, and the world? I hope that you will read my words and understand that they are not malicious, but rather hoping to bring you to the throne room of God.

Children beheaded by Taliban
September 13, 2012, 6:20 pm
Filed under: Happening Now | Tags: , , , , , , ,

A story by Reuters shows us what Afghanistan will look like if the Taliban regain power. We will see the country return to women no being allowed to work, of not even being allowed out of their homes unless accompanied by a male member of her family and she must be covered from head to toe. No skin must show or she can be stoned to death immediately. Children beheaded and even one whose skin was removed. Check out this story Reuters this is horrific.

Yes I want our men and women out of Afghanistan, not so the country can return to barbarism. These children were killed because they were considered immoral, not that they had done anything wrong, but because their families were trying to live their lives in freedom. These barbarians cannot be the future of this or any country, but, if we turn our backs on this there will be murder, rape, stoning, and maybe a few more crucifixions as they have already done in Egypt. It is time to stop believing that these people will return kindness for kindness, it will not happen. The history of Islam has been bloody, much bloodier than anything Christianity has done. You see, if these people defeat an enemy there are three choices offered. Become a Muslim, become a slave or DIE. NEWS FLASH for those of you women out there, you will become 2nd class citizens, any man in your family group can have his way with you and you have NO RIGHTS!

Please people wake up! This is not a peaceful religion, it is a religion of war and hatred, these people are not our friends. Even those who live in this country, will become just like the ones who conquer and kill, because their god requires that the subjugation of all the world under the Caliphate that the Muslim Brotherhood, Iran and the Mullahs are aiming for. BTW a Muslim man may have more than one wife it is legal for them to have 3 or 4 wives, don’t believe the lies that are being propagated by the government, it is not true that this is a great religion, it is instead a murderous group of people who use allah as an excuse to maim and kill. These people are barbarians. Women and children mean nothing to them only power is what has meaning.

I am amazed that the progressives are working so hard to shut Rush Limbaugh up, there is a concerted effort to get him off the air. Yet I don’t see any “outrage” when these people say that Sarah Palin is, well Bill Maher said the two four letter words in regard to her, and neither of them were slut. Montel Williams can say that he hopes Michelle Bachmann will slit her wrists, yet there were no cries for the his sponsors to leave his show.

The reality here is not that Rush said something that should not be said in polite company, or on the public airways, the truth is this is about the Progressives trying to force those who believe that killing babies is wrong into doing so anyway. You see this all started because Ms. Fluke testified before Congress about the high cost of contraceptives, of course it only cost $9.00 at Target just a mile from her school, but that wasn’t her point, she was and is an activist for the Abortion (kill the children) industry.

I still don’t understand why an innocent child is to blame for the actions of the adults that caused this pregnancy anyway. You see, we keep talking about choice, about the woman’s right to choose. Well the choice was made when the woman and man chose to have sex without contraception (which is really cheap), a box of condoms is only a couple of dollars, and, as already shown, target sells womens contraceptives for only $9.00 for a 30 day supply. As for Rush Limbaugh, I did not like what he said, but I defend his right to say it, I also don’t like when the Progressives say these thing, but also defend their right to say it. It is after all one of those Free Speech things that the Progressive cause likes to tout, when it is their side saying these things, but never free speech when it is a Conservative person saying them.

By the way, when does Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachmann get a phone call of support from the President? I mean if Ms. Fluke can get a call when she is insulted, turn about should be seen as fair play, I would think, and of course our President keeps speaking of fair treatment for all persons, so where is the fairness for Laura Ingraham, Michelle Malkin and the other conservative women who have been cursed and maligned by the people who are his supporters? Perhaps it is time to begin calling those companies who support progressives such as Time Warner and HBO and others, and cancel our subscriptions to their services, as Rush Limbaugh’s sponsors were harrassed by those on the progressive side, trying to shut Rush up.

It is time for the “fairness” to work both ways, it is time for those who hate to wake up and smell the burnt ground they are leaving in their quest to shut up anyone who does not agree with them. A schorched earth policy is not a good policy, it tends to burn longer than you expected it to and it might just find it’s way into your own back yard.

Of course I did grow up in a different time frame, being born in 1945, I am not a part of that, “me first” generation that came after us, that has taught itself that the world and the universe revolves around itself. It is time for the hateful rhetoric to end, it is time to return to a more civilized time, when you could disagree with each other without trying to destroy each other, but rather to hold a conversation in which both listen and speak after hearing the other. Right now all we hear is a cacophony of noise from the progressive side, and an attempt to speak softly from the conservative side, apologizing for the slight, (which of course was not accepted), and trying to move the conversation into quieter and saner discourse. We still need to find a way to allow people of conscience to be able to live by their faith instead of forcing them to live by the rules that the state puts down, even though the state is exceeding its power in doing so.
