What in the world is going on? Have you seen any of this?

6/19/17:  As we wonder what is the world is going on, we can ask have you seen any of the following? Perilous times. 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 (lacking self-restraint; uncontrolled) Fierce Despisers of those that are good Traitors Heady (rash) Highminded Lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof What should you do? “  According to 2 Timothy 1-5:  Run, and from such turn away.” And what time is it?  The answer is according to the letter to Timothy: these are signs of the end times.

Christian’s Reason for Optimism

June 2, 2017: Here are a few reasons why Christians should enjoy optimism which may require reviewing the reference in the written document. God of the Universe loves us. John 3:16 Sins are not remembered against us: Hebrews 8:12. Jesus is constantly interceding on our behalf: Hebrews 7:35. What ever happens can be for our benefit:  Romans 8:28. We shall enjoy prosperity in what ever we put our hand to: Deuteronomy 28:8. Not to worry about something coming against us. Isaiah 54:17. Note: Some are conditional.

Stopping Fake News

May 31, 2017: I bind every lying demon spirit that is coming against the righteous and or those in high places in public office, In Jesus name. According to Your Word cause those propagating such lies to fall into the hole they have dug for another and or have the boulder they intended to roll onto another roll back on them.  Proverbs 26:27.  And make it pubic what happened to the perpetrator.

Handling Disapointment Proactively

4/30/2017: Disappointment handled the Biblical way without presumption.  The following proactive approach is outlined in James 4:13-15. “Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit. Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.  Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that.”

Who really died at Auschwitz?

12/24/2016: Who really died at Auschwitz?  This has made the Internet rounds since 2004.  A Google search proposes the original source and the unknown author. Original Source: online Spanish magazine Gentiuno and their posting of Nov 21, 2004. Author: Unknown, but ascribed to Sebastián Vivar Rodríguez who may well be fictious. The absence of either does not make the posting any less true or worthy of our attention.  I rather think of what was born or re-born from the Holocaust; Israel in 1948 and Jerusulem in 1967. The following is an edited and modified version of the original which is posted on www.truthorfiction.com/europe-died-in-auschwitz-by-spanish-writer-sebastian-vilar-rodrigez/ I walked down the streets in Barcelona and suddenly discovered a terrible truth – Europe died in Auschwitz . . . We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world. The contribution of these people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned. And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride. They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime. Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts. And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition. We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs. What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe. Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it ‘offends’ the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving in to it. It is now approximately seventy years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the six million Jews, twenty million Russians, ten million Christians, and nineteen-hundred Catholic priests who were ‘murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated. Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be ‘a myth,’ it is imperative to make sure the world “never forgets.” How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center ‘NEVER HAPPENED’ because it offends some Muslim in the United States?  

The Cloud, old definiton with new meaning

12/18/2016: Physical clouds in the sky take all types of forms, most are beautiful, especially as they roll in from across Lake Michigan [In the summer :)] Then the scripture says that the return of Christ in Revelation 1:7 “Behold, he cometh with clouds, and every eye shall see him…” Before universal television that idea did not seem a tangible reality.  Now it is. Then it occurred to me that the Internet, web, millions of cell phones that now store and recieve images from what is now called “the cloud” is expanded potential for “every eye to see him” Of course God is not limited to TV nor the Internet’s cloud, but I could not help but seeing evidence either in or from the cloud.

A Gift that is both Good and Perfect; Definitions

12/18/2016: I came across gifting that would be both good and perfect today.  I was curious about the definitions thereof.  So looked at the following and they turned out to be similar if not the same definitions. James 1: 17 “Every good” Virtuous, Right, Commendable, Benevolent, Competent, Skillful. “Every perfect” Virtuous,  Right, Commendable, Kind, Benevolent, Competent, Skillful. King James Bible Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. International Standard Version Every generous act of giving and every perfect gift is from above and comes down from the Father who made the heavenly lights, in whom there is no inconsistency or shifting shadow. JB Phillips But every good endowment that we possess and every complete gift that we have received must come from above, from the Father of all lights, with whom there is never the slightest variation or shadow of inconsistency..
