The name Stephen Lennon, aka, Tommy Robinson, a vocal critic of Islam isn’t likely to ring a bell of familiarity with many Americans. But it’s different through out Europe, who often experience Islamic terror. Like the killing of two police women in Belgium buy a Muslim on a two day furlough from prison. He knifed the officers, then took their guns and shoot them. Killing both and shouting, Allahu Akbar, meaning, Allah is the greatest!

Tommy was arrested and jailed because he was filming outside of a court where a Muslim rape gang trial was being held. Charged with contempt of court because of a prior suspended sentenced immediately to a 13 month sentence.

Tommy Lennon headed the English Defense League serving as a constant voice of warning about the world Islamization goals of Muslims. Tommy became a noticeable irritation to the British government, who labeled him a trouble maker. And has been prosecuting him for years. Making life difficult for him and his family to secure the basic necessities of life.

After his arrest the British media was forbidden to report his arrest and jailing. Effectually shutting free speech.

A member of the German parliament has offered Tommy political asylum an interesting u turn. Germany once the perfect voice of speech suppression offers Tommy asylum. While Great Britain, once the voice of free speech, says we are filling the shoes Germany once wore.

An interesting read, Tommy’s book, “Enemy of the State.”

For tomorrow, an explanation for all the aforementioned of this discussion.

The restored soul and how to get there

While listening to a often sung hymn, “How Great Thou Art,” I found myself once again struck by the majesty of the words. Each stanza has a particular focus on the greatness of God. From creation, to Christ and his return, covering all of his major themes. With each theme there are myriads of jewels for the worshiper to discover. As the spirit of God touches your soul.

This padre gets maximum satisfaction while out and about the country side, and seeing a stunning sight. Like the magnificence of a rain bow, or the sight of a recently born baby. Instantly, blessing that baby silently, as God touches our respective souls for just a few moments and brings us together for all eternity. These are the words of my blessing, child you can not come unto Jesus except the Father draws you to Him, John 6:44, Concluding with my favorite blessing because life is tough and will get tougher. Jude 24-25, “Now to Him, who is able to keep you from stumbling. And to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy. To God our Savior, who only is wise. Be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever.” Amen.

Then from memory, I sing to myself the appropriate stanza and chorus. It is an uplifting experience especially in a world that has a tendency to wear one down. Even infants!

Praising God is one way God restores our souls, and leads us in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake, Psalms 23:3. Enjoy the experience! For your consideration, the four stanzas and the chorus. The chorus of course repeats itself after each stanza. Read them slowly and meditatively and sense the power of the words. Really works well while listening to the hymn being sung while allowing your soul to absorb the words through your eyes and ears.

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power through out the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul, My Savior God to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Savior God to Thee,
How great Thou art, My Savior God to Thee!

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.
When I look down, from lofty mountains grandeur
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.

Chorus stanza repeats: Then signs my soul, My Savior God to Thee.

And when I think that God, His son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scare can take it in;
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take my sin away my sin.

Chorus repeats: The sings my soul, My Savior God to Thee.

When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration,
And then proclaim, “My God great Thou art!”

The sings My soul, My Savior God to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Savior God to Thee,
How great Thou art. How great thou art!

For those, never having had the uplifting experience from the hymn. You can do so by selecting a search engine. Search by using the words, “How great thou Art,” Shea or Presley. But to listen to all four verses type, Boberg, who was the original author. That should take you to youtube.com. I enjoy both the George Beverly Shea and Elvis Presley renditions best.

a city of lies

Traveling through a desert a man saw a women standing alone with eyes bent on the ground.

Who are you? he asked. ‘I am Truth,’ she answered. And why have you left the town to live in the desert? Because times have changed, she said. In days gone by, lying was confined to a few. But now days whenever you converse with people you find they are all liars.

Human life is a vile and wretched thing, when falsehood is honored above truth. (source: Penguin Classics-Fables of Aesop-A City of lies)

What represents truth in our world? Truth is difficult to define because truth is capsuled by the perspective of the observers. One persons truth is another persons lie. Take yourself on a journey. In examination of life that is vile and indeed wretched. Perhaps you’ll discover that falsehoods are honored above truths. And perhaps a journey well designed will sort out the truths from the lies. Perhaps ending some applicable handles for distinguishing truths from lies.

Think of the following in terms of yourself. Especially in terms of denied equity. Equity when the government bailed out Wall Street, but failed to bailout homeowners with lost homes through foreclosures. Who should have been seen as being to big by the government to be allowed to fail, as they did with Wall Street.

And the list of denied equity could go on, but the reader can add their own tails of lost equity. But with the addition of those, lots of money for war, no money for education. Inequitable pay in the work place. The millions without health insurance forced to pay the Obama tax penalty because they can’t afford to buy insurance even with government subsidies. Solution! Livable wages indexed by continued wage increases based upon inflation. Exasperated by wage inequity between the sexes when doing the same job. And a horrible inequitable system of taxation in favor of corporate conglomerates and the rich.

Then determine how badly you want to make the liars, pay for their lies. “Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; for truth is fallen in the street and equity cannot enter,” Isaiah 59:14. Right does not have to stand afar off because truth can be made to stand tall in the streets so that the people can enter. But of course, it takes people called Christians, who have experienced 2 Corinthians 5:17.

Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened that it cannot save; nor His ear heavy that it cannot hear.

But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.

For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue has muttered perversity.

No one calls for justice, nor does any plead for truth. They trust in empty words and speak lies; they conceive evil and bring forth iniquity.

They hatch vipers’ eggs and weave the spider’s web; he who eats their eggs dies, and from that which is crushed a viper breaks out.

Their webs will not become garments, nor will they cover themselves with their works; their works are the works of iniquity, and the act of violence is their hands.

Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.

The way of peace they have not known, and there is no justice in their ways; they have themselves crooked paths; whoever takes that way shall not know peace. (scriptural texts:Isaiah 59:1-8).

The prophet Isaiah unveils the American consequences for traveling such a road.

Therefore justice is far from us, nor does righteousness over take us; we look for light, but there is darkness!

We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes; we stumble at noonday as at twilight; we are as dead men in desolate places.

We all growl like bears, and moan sadly like doves; we look for justice, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far from us.

For our transgressions are multiplied before You, and our sins testify against us, and as for our iniquities, we know them.

In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.

Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.

So truth fails, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. (scriptural texts:Isaiah 59:9-15a).

A pause in the heavens causing divine evaluations noticed by the prophet Isaiah. And action, would occur by divine intervention

The LORD saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor; therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him; and His own righteousness, it sustained Him.

For He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on His head; He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak.

According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay, fury to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies; the coastlands will fully repay. (scriptural texts:Isaiah 59:15b-18).

As history shows nations who shun righteousness as national standard bearer, become nothing. History demonstrates their regrets but it’s to late.

So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; when the enemy comes like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him. (scriptural texts:Isaiah 59:19-20).

Someday in the future the times will be different. It’s the in between times that will be muddy.

“The Redeemer will come to Zion, and to those who turn from transgressions in Jacob,” says the LORD. (scriptural text:Isaiah 59:20). A prophetic declaration concerning the United States. It’s the lineage of Jacob the winged lion of Daniel, Daniel 7:4, headed to the shores that would become America. Made to stand on its own two feet and given a man’s heart. Tagged by mortals around the world as Uncle Sam for her unending benevolence, guidance and protection.

“As for Me,” says the LORD, this is My covenant with them. My Spirit who is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your descendants, nor from the mouth of your descendants’ descendants,” says the LORD, “from this time and forevermore.” (scriptural text:Isaiah 59:21).

To say that troublesome times are upon the community of nations is indeed an understatement. God has chosen the Jews as His prime example as to what it means to get on His bad side. Gentile nations have followed the Jewish path and are nonexistent. Nothing more than inked pages in history books. Modern Israel is still to feel more of His displeasure’s as history progresses to its climax. With the United States suffering greatly from turning away from its divine commissions. As a light to the world, and as the salt which is its only preservative from self destruction. Acknowledged as truth by Jesus in Matthew 5:13-14. But despite her darkest days, yet to come. America will always have a remnant of descendants faithful to Jesus. And that’s by divine oracle as cited by the prophet Isaiah.

The wounds of friendship

On a sunny day a rabbit was enjoying his day. Thinking to himself what a day! Warm and sunny under a clear blue sky. Now, only to find some food and my day will be complete thought the rabbit.

Suddenly, he heard voices. Knowing immediately that the voices were those of his arch enemies. He had heard them talk before. “Saying nothing like a fresh rabbit to mix in with those vegetables for a good stew.” Intuitively knowing that he was the rabbit meant for that stew. Wasting no time he hit the trail at full speed.

He came upon a farmer and begged for help. Explaining his dilemma. The farmer pointed to a shed, and said. “Go inside and you’ll be safe.” Soon the hunters arrived, “And asked if he had seen a rabbit in the area?” No! But as he spoke he used gestures to point to were the rabbit was hiding.

For some reason, the hunters did not get the message. But, the rabbit observing clearly got the message too.

Once the hunters were out of sight the rabbit emerged from hiding. He made his way past the farmer never saying a word. The farmer scolded the rabbit for being ungrateful for his deliverance from the hunters. Oh said, the rabbit! “Indeed I would have thanked you. If your actions, had matched your words.” (source unknown)

Unlike the rabbit, most avoid correcting our farmers for their betrayals. O! the stories that wounds could tell, if they could speak for themselves. One of the wounded did rise to speak upon an inquiry. “What are those wounds in your hands asked the questioner?” With the wounded replying, “They are the wounds received in the house of my friends,” Zechariah 13:6. How many could tell similar stories? And often do silently to themselves because those wounds are to painful to discuss.

Then came Jesus saying, “Come unto me, all you that labor and are under heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Accept my way and learn from me; for I am meek, and gentle at heart, and you shall find rest,” Matthew 11:28-29.

What did the rabbit gain by his chastisement of the farmer for not matching his actions with his words? We do not know, do we? Perhaps at least, some personal satisfaction. But did the inner frustration plague the rabbit, allowing for no peace of consciences? Most likely, because that is the way most respond to betrayals, especially from those close to us whom we have trusted. And this padre thinks such inner responses of fenced in emotions are a contributing factor to many illnesses. Jesus offers a better way by offering to bear our burdens. But the key to experiencing His rest is to accept the Christ way which can only be done by learning of His expectations. They start with Romans 10:9-10, “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raise Him from the dead, you will be saved. For the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

The intricacies of the Christ way are as simple as they are complex. Therefore, take upon yourself an expanded study of those complexities and there intricacies. Perhaps such an endeavor may make them easier to understand.

Patience is required because it is not an over night journey. Instant gratification is not part of the Christ way for finding comfort for our labors and burdens.

turbulent ways of death

Blessed are they that come in the name of the Lord. See Psalms 118:26. Collectively, Christians must become those people, who through their blessedness must make a difference. Why? Because the nation has transgressed against God, the nation has galloped in support of gay marriages. Sexual identity is now a matter choice. If a person of a particular sex, asserts an opposite sexual identiity. Then that identity must be recognized by society. And afforded, all the accommodating amenities Sure ways to provoke God.

For, He created them male and female. See Genesis 1:27; 5:1-2. And, determined that they would marry. See Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:5-6 and Ephesians 5:31.

So when one hears nonsence from a man introducing his male companion, as his wife. And someone asserting, I’m sexually something that I’m not by birth.

Wise up folks because, “Who knowing the judgment of God, that they who commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same but have pleasure in them that do them,” Romans 1:32. Attention was called to two phrases, ‘worthy of death.’ Clarifying that death in our scriptures is not always ‘physical death.’ It equally applies to the nation experiencing the death of its strength making it vulnerable to its enemies. And, the ‘physical death’ of its prosperity. Causing economic ruin with tail spinning peripheral effects, like hunger, disease and crippling weather patterns. Or death through smothering national debt that Congress can’t come to grips with. Because, the nation lacks spiritual oxygen.

All suggestive that judgment is upon a people and their nation, who being straight condone homosexual behaviors. Sealing judgment with the prophetic phrase, ‘but have pleasure in them that do them.’

Keep what you are about to read. And as, time unflods fill in the data. Because the confederacy for troublesome times is arriving on time.

“For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; and those who hate You have lifted up their head. They have taken crafty counsel against Your sheltered ones. They have said, ‘Come and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more. For they have consulted together with one consent; they form a confedercy against You.'” See Psalms 83:2-5.

Just how is this confederacy to destroy Israel occurring? Through a global body sphere headed by a charismatic leader. Who will convince this global body that he is a peace maker, who will settle the out of control conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. Threatening to ignite the global community in global warfare. He’ll do just that by signing a peace treaty between this world body and the antagonists. It’ll work temporarily, but will end up being disasterious for Israel.

The above paragraph has a biblical bases. Instead of enumerating all the details it’ll have greater authenticity, if readers discovers them for themselves. Here though are some helpful hints. Watch global events, as they unfold through the always available global news media. Then match them biblically from ones research.

The Bible reveals a global institution with many tentacles for global influence. A prototype for such an institution exists today known as the United Nations. And if one is news observer, then one is aware that the United Nations is becoming more powerful as it ages. Slowly, but surely using its tentacles to strangle international behaviors. Working to create a world community where nations legislate laws that adheres to its legislation.

The Bible identifies its leaders, as being the false prophet and the anti-christ. Sphere headed by that infamous fallen angel known as Satan.

To the glory of Israel

Of all the problems facing the world community, why does the Middle East get so much attention? Especially the Israeli/Palestinian conflict concerning statehood for the Palestinians. With Jerusalem being the major focal point of disagreement between the parties.

There is only one answer and it’s a simple answer, religion. Because all the land in dispute are lands to which Israel traces its genealogy, as does Christendom. What makes the lands important to Israel and Christendom is that the lands were promised to the Jews. Noted as follows, “And I will establish my covenant between Me and you. And your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant. To be a God to you, and to your descendants after you. Also I will give to you, and to your descendants after you, the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God,” Genesis 17:7-8.

The Israeli/Christendom connection came about as follows. Abraham didn’t have a heir to pass on the covenant God made with him. The two had a dispute about that because Abraham and his wife were very old (Genesis 17:17). But God set the record straight, “Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him,” Genesis 17:19. It’s the genealogy of Christ back to Isaac that makes the land Canaan sacred also to Christendom.

But the Arab/Muslim world says it isn’t so! And those opposing opinions is what the Middle East conflict is all about. But not just the Middle East because the global community falls on both sides of the dispute. With increasing momentum shifting against Israel. With former President Obama being among those favoring the Palestinians. But not willing to come forward and explicitly make such an endorsement because the majority of Americans were not there yet.

But a whole new threat to Israel occurred, when Obama went to war against Libya based upon a United Nations resolution but without congressional consent. For Israel, that has spelled  heap-um big trouble. Because within the former Presient’s administration were three high ranking officials, who played significant roles in the Council’s war actions against Libya. And this trio had expressed strong anti-Israeli sentiments in the past. They were, Susan Rice, U.S. National Security Advisor. Who was a vehement critic of Israel. In her position, she constantly advocates for U.S. support for the Palestinians. And if support can’t be generated, she urges that the U.S. not exercise its veto option.

Then there was, Samantha Powers, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Who has voiced support for the Palestinians by urging the sending U.S. troops to protect them from Israel.

Not to be forgotten was Hillary Clinton, who served in President Obama’s administration during his presidency. Whose sympathies for the Palestinians dates back to her days as First Lady. No wonder, Obama wanted her to be apart of his administration. Together they built a pro Arab/Muslim coalition through out his administration. And Obama proved himself to be the most anti-Israeli/American President ever.

Had Hillary succeeded in her presidential bid, no doubt she would have pick up where Obama left off. For the glory of Israel, her presidential bid failed

So with those American players tenure’s ending, we will not see another Palestinian resolution going beyond what the United Nations did on 29 November 2012. When the world body voted to grant the Palestinians, non-member observer state status. It’ll be interesting to see if the United Nations declares statehood for the Palestinians in during President Trump’s tenure. But we, can expect the United Nations to continue to demand that Israel surrender captured lands through Israeli fruits of war.

The defeat of Hillary Clinton meant that Israel will not be warned by the U.N. that she must immediately take steps to exit all lands within the international recognized State of Palestine. Or worry about a U.S. led military strike against her. However, that doesn’t mean that sometime in the future that the, United States will not join the community of nations to attack Israel. Because of this prophetic announcement, “For I will gather all nations to battle against Jerusalem; the city shall be taken, the houses rifled, and the woman ravished,” Zechariah 14:2.

Hard to believe that American bombs would ever fall upon our long standing ally, Israel. But the wrong presidential administration in power, could make it possible sometime in the future. The people act, and force congress to make U.S presidents get constitutional authorization before engaging the nation in a war.

how to recognize a phony

People ask, “How can I discover the will of God for me?” Don’t expect to hear a voice like Paul experienced, As he was on his way to arrest, as many Jews as possible. To be prosecuted for promoting a way to experience God other than through Judaism. Which was the experience of many people, as recorded through out the Bible, who were verbally, or through dreams had God’s will manifested to them.

Although there are many of the glergy who disagree. Mostly because they are prosperity entrepreneurs. More interested in empire building than adhereing to grace age teachings. They specialize in scare tactics in order to fill their pews and enrich their bank accounts. At the expense of spiritual enrichment.

Jesus said this about them, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but are inwardly ravenous wolves,” Matthew 7:15. Because, “Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven,” Matthew 7:21. The verses between 15-21 are about the evils of prosperity entrepreneurs, as oppossed to grace age teachings given to the Apostle Paul during his three years of seminarian training in Abriba by Jesus Himself. See Galatians 1:15-18.

Peter chimed in, and said this about those prosperity entrepreneurs scatterd through out modern Christendom. “…, which untaght and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the scriptures,” 2 Peter 3:16.

Concerning the will of God, if not already, become a church drop out. Start a home Bible study, and consider inviting friends and neighbors to become a part of the group. Focus at first in a slow deliberate study of Paul’s writings.

Next, consider your passions of interest by instinct. Note the following, “For as, many, as are led by the Spirit of God, these sons of God,” Romans 8:14; and; “But if we hope for what we can not see, we eagerly wait for it with perservance,” Romans 8:25; concluding with, “And we know that all things work together for good, to those who are caused according to His purpose,” Romans 8:28.

a wonderment cured

Ignore the asds! They are not supported by this Padre. Ads are nothing more than an attempt to get your money. And to give you as little satisfaction as possile. I’m stuck with them because this is a word press blog.

Ever wonder why Christendom is so anemic today? Me too! Though seminarian trained and ordined this padre didn’t feel comfortable with what he was taught. Something was missing, and what was missing was an inability to make the scriptures work for me. Scriptures like, John 14:13-14, which promises, “And whatever you ask in My name, that will I do! That the Father may be glorifed in the son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” It wasn’t some ordinary person making that promise. It was, Jesus Christ, Himself! So why, for me, where my prayers falling upon seemingly deaf ears? Have you ever had that experience?

So after decades of wonderment the cure arrived. From an unexpected source, who suggested the following. “Who is speaking or writing? To whom is it being said to? And what are the circustances before? And what follows after all that has been determined?” I later discovere it had a biblical bases. Found in 2 Timothy 2:15, which says, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker, who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Those four questions are tantamount for understanding any negative experiences when exercising prayer. Or for that matter, an experiential understanding of the complete Bible. So, going back to, John 14:13-14, Jesus was talking to His disciples. At a time, when the Jews were still under the mosaic law and all the rituals of temple worship. So those verses have no relevancy for our times and experiences. Which lasted, well into the book of Acts. Until Jesus changed Paul’s destiny and gave him a destiny of radical change.

Because, we are now anchored to grace age experiences, as revealed to the Apostle Paul for us today. Note, Galatians 1:15-16, “But when it pleased God, who separted me from my mother’s womb, and called me through His grace. To reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the gentiles. I did not immeditely confer with flesh and blood.”

So to complete this journey concerning prayer during the time of grace turn to Philippians 4:6-7, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your request be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and mimds through Christ Jesus.” Note there is no all inclusive promises, as was the case from, John 14:13-14. Different time, and circumstances woven around the aforementioned questions. Also, a slow meticulous study of Romans chapter eight will be most helpful for the understanding of prayer and other matters as well.

It is strongly recommended, for a stalwart Christo experience master Paul’s writings. With Christo being interpreted as enlightened and anointed. Something that’s not likely to occur, if one is closely associated with modern day Christendom. It’s also strongly recommended that home Bible study groups are formed.

a game changer

It was said in closing paragraph from yesterdays discussion that there is a sickness found in John’s gospel. And that, Paul provides the cure.

Though the sickness is recorded by John, it’s compounded by Jesus himself. And for emphasis He repeats Himself. Saying, “And whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father in heaven maybe glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” See John 14:13-14. Emphatically, this Padre asserts it’s not going to happen! It’s all inclusive, so if Jesus doesn’t answer someones prayer does that mean that Jesus is a deceiver? NO!

So the clergy, when confronted by parishioners inquiring as to why their prayers seem to fall upon deaf ears. The standard answer which is not very satisfying to the seekers. Who are often told that their prayers weren’t offered according to will of God. And most clergy, have a repertoire of responses in order to prove their point

Here’s one of their favorites. Jesus knows what you are in need of before you ask him. And he, or she, as good pastors of the seeking sheep open their Bibles to prove their point. Here it is from Jesus Himself, “But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in a secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think they shall be heard for their many words. Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.” See Matthew 6:6-8. Must have been a vain repetition or something you really didn’t need. Case closed, or is it?

Here’s what you need to know in order to avoid confusion. First, Jesus was talking to His disciples. He promised to do what is recorded in John 14:13-14. And often for them, He was faitful to His word. Secondly, Jesus came born of Mary, and destined by the Father to be their Messiah. And as their Messiah, He came to fulfill the prophetic promises to establish God’s kingdom on this earth. But the Jews rejected Jesus, as their Messiah. See John 1:11. And forfeited the establishment of His kingdom here, at that time. John 14:13-14, applied to His disciples, and the people had they accepted Jesus as their Messiah. The disciples are no longer here, nor has the Kingdom of God been established. Plain and simple, John 14:13-14 isn’t applicable today. Because, the Gospels were designed to announce the coming of the Christ. In fulfillment of the Abrahamic promises. The Jews who lived during the time of the gospels were under the law estblished by Moses. And all the temple resposibilites, instituted for the Jews by God through Moses. Which were, still in effect during the early chapters of the book of Acts.

Things changed, when God directed the Apostle Paul to offer the gospel of grace to the Jews and Gentiles. Don’t believe anything the clergy tells you. Unless you can find support for what they are saying in the Bible. This is complicated and needs to be taught. Concerning the past, and the change, here is what Peter wrote, “…, and consider the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation. As also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him has written to you. As also in his epistles, speaking in them things hard to understand. Which are some things hard to understand which some people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the scriptures,” 2 Peter 3:15-16. This padre is available to unravel this horbile mess of the modern day church. Done upon request free of any payments for services provided. However, God does know what we all need before we ask Him.

So is Jesus in the prayer answering business today? Sometimes. For tomorrow, the how and when, the promised cure, with sickness made sick.

attitude is everything

If you are politically savvy, then you know the migration by Muslims from their hell holes to European countries. Has led to nothing but violent disruptions. Raising up a new brand of politicians saying enuf is enuf. Causing one candidate, to comment and ask, “There’s something I just don’t understand. People who come to France, why would they want to change France, to live in France the same way they lived back home,” Marine Le Pen.

There is an answer, and when this padre gets to it, it’ll be scary. But first there are more important matters to address. In the fullest sense of the concept, we are engaged in a spiritual world war. Denied by most which will be to their peril. And such a notion might be shared by some politicians. But they are not going to admit it because it would ruin their political careers. This spiritual war had its beginning during the lifetime of the Jewish patriarch, Abraham. Some of which has been discussed but needs greater elaboration. Hang in there because its forthcoming.

Recently, this padre had spent several discussions chronicling the life and times of the Jewish prosecutor Saul. Who was determined to eliminate by any means necessary the people of the Way, or Christians. Only to end up becoming the Way’s foremost advocate. Which reverberated into a global revolution. Which some of us have experienced, in our lifetimes. Now that’s power and influence worth having.

And if you don’t have it, it’s yours for the asking. Here’s the simple process. You confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. See Romans 10:9-10. That’s it. Pretty simple. Now like, Saul, Ananias, this padre and many others. You are of the Way. The Way is a word taken from, Acts 9:2. It’s a word Jesus used when He said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. See John 14:6.

As a reader, you are unknown to this padre. You may be one of the disillusioned of Christendom. A church drop out for personal reasons whose numbers are growing. This padre is one of them.

Or like Saul, a first timer. First acquaint your self with Saul’s or Paul’s writings. They include the book of Acts through Hebrews. Our Bible is the perfect word of God providing answer to life’s troubling issues, personally or globally. It’s complex book that requires a lot of foreknowledge as to how our Bible is put together. In order to understand and see the complete picture.

For tomorrow one concrete example that has caused and is causing some to become church drop outs. The clergy isn’t taught this stuff as seminarians. So they make people feel that it’s their fault. When it isn’t because it’s explainable. The sickness is found in John’s gospel. And Paul provides the cure.

trump jr jumps into the mix

Another yesterday, replaying itself out through a numed global community. Because the frequency is the same, only the players and locations change.

Unfortunately, London has a Muslim mayor. Mayor Sadiq Khan, responding to the events that saw madman, Khalid Masood, do what Muslims do best which is to injure and kill.

It’s their centuries of history. It’s not going to change in our twenty first century. It’s only going to intensify making mockery of politicians who say, as did Mayor Sadiq Khan, “I’m not going to allow terrorists to divide London, and destroy our way of life. We haven’t in the past, we are not currently, or in the future.” Source: the blaze.com.

It’s not about any of that stuff. Muslim jihadists only care about conquering the world for Allah and his prophet Muhammad. Until the world understands that and works to close Muslim mosques which are nothing more than military fortresses for jihadists. Where trained jihadists are given encouragement and sanctuary until its time to attack. The mayhem will continue and grow.

It doesn’t have to be that way. The populace must embrace and return the world to Christ honoring societies. Meaning the community of nations will have to deal harshly with the devils who live among, their Muslim population. In the not so far past it would have been impossible for a Muslim to ascend to the office of Mayor in London. Because the cross purposes of Islam and the nations Judeo-Christian of London were not compatible.

This is Mayor Sadiq Khan reality for London and Great Britain. London and the country has in the past, and will live into the future with a threat of severe. Explaining, “that an attack is highly likely.” Source:the blaze.com.

In light of the Westminster fiasco, Mayor Sadiq Khan issued the following statement. “The threat of terror attacks are, ‘part and parcel of living in big city.'” Concluding by encouraging Londoners to be vigilant to combat dangers. Source:the blaze.com.

Causing Trump Jr. to tweet, “You have to be kidding me?!: Terror attacks are part of living in a big city, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan.” Source:the blaze.com.

Causing, CNN reporter, Christiane Amanpour to refer Trump Jr’ tweet as a “sort of knee-jerk reaction.” Source:the blaze.com. It’s what to expect from news outlets like CNN. The likes of CNN don’t have the slightest clue of the dangers the Judeo-Christian world faces from Islam. They know little about the biblical roots of Islam. Nor do they know the biblical roots of Great Britain. The two societies are polar opposites and will never live in harmony. The attack on the city of Westminister represented not only an attack upon democracy but upon God Almighty himself. Because, Great Britain has a biblical rooting. Destined to be something other than what Great Britain is today. All behaviors have consequences, and Great Britain has, and is experiencing those consequences.

Know your Bible, so you can know your world. And then, act to save it. Through the angelic great commission reiterated by Jesus himself. See Revelation 14:6; Matthew 28:19-20.

no greater evil

The scenarios are an synopsis of yesterdays terror today. As was this yesterday, it’s today is the same. The differance is the calendar date and Islamic thugs. After all, we have centuries of history to prove its authenticity reaching us today. Proven by web searches.

“Saudi embassy confirms UK terrorist had been in Saudi Arabia. There embassy says while there he taught English.” Source:The Times of Israel.

What The times didn’t inquire about was what Khalid Masood was doing there while not teaching? Easy answer! Being radicalized! He learned his art well driving his Gray Hyundai 140 over the Westminster bridge plowing his car into as many people as possible. Arriving at his planned destination the Houses of Parliament. There he leaped from his car fatefully stabbing a police officer.

Only to earn his just reward, as police shot and killed him. One less Muslim maniac to contend with.

Furthermore, it’s a serious mistake to consider Saudi Arabia an ally. It’s long been rumored that the Saudis were active participants in the 9/11 attacks. And are, the financial source for the construction of Islamic mosques through the United States. Which are nothing more than military fortresses, from which they will emerge to attack us, when the time is right. Those mosques are Americas Trojan Horse!

Better take to heart the prophecy of the great Jewish seer, Moses. Who warned, Muslims are a wild and unmanageable people. Always at war with themselves and others. See Genesis 16:11-12. The Apostle Paul said get rid of Muslims. Because they will jihad the world until they replace Judeo-Christians cultures and values with Islam. See Galatians 4:29-30.

Misery strikes he might dial ur number

It doesn’t mater, if the news about Isamic terror happened a yesterday ago, or is about to happen, or planned for some tomorrow. It doesn’t mstter because Muslims are determined to kill you.

So here’s one from a yesterday. Shared because it’s emerging as a facorite wespon of death by Muslims. Driving a gray Hyundai 140, he plowed through through a crowd of people on the Westminster bridge, as he headed towards the Houses of Parliament. A witness provided this account. “A guy came past my right shoulder with a big knife and just started plunging it into a police officer.” The police officer, Keith Palmer, was on duty protecting the nations seat of democracy. He died from his injuries along with three other people killed on the bridge.

This was a Islamic world attack designed to repeat there slogan. Which declares, “Allah is our objective. The Prophet Muhammad is our leader. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying is the way of Allah our highest hope

Here’s the casualty list making this a global attack. Four killed! Injured were twelve Britions, four South Koreans, three French, two Romanians, two Greeks, two Irish and one each from China, Germany, Portugal and the United States.

We are engaged in a world war. Muslims know it, cheer for it and love it. While the non-Muslim world, believes the political rhetoric. Which is Islam is a peaceful religion, with only a few jihadist giving Islam a bad name. Muslim know differently, and cheer for the rhetoric and love it too.

But there was a westerner (Acts 22:28),who knew better. We know him as the Apostle Paul. Considered by this writer to have been the greatest churchman of history. Moving the world from the paradigm of law to another. Known historically, as the age of the church.

He said, Christians were the children of promise through the lineage of Isaac. Going on to show a deadly contrast. Pointing out that there was one born of the flesh, Ishmael the father of Islam. Who persecuted Jews, and Christians, then and now because Ishmael wanted to be the son of promise. To resolve the problem this was his advice then and for now. “Nevertheless, what does the scripture say? Cast out the bondwoman (Hagar mother of Islam)and her son (Ishmael father of Isalm). For the son bondwoman shall not be an heir with the son of freewoman. So then, brethren, we are not children of bondwoman but of the free. ” See Galatians 4:30-31.

It comes down to this, we are in a global conflict between our Judeo-Christian values and those of Islam. So if you value, the culture and values of western society, you better follow Paul’s advice. Get rid of the Muslims. Because Muslims will continue their jihad until they are recognized as the people of promise. In the meantime misery that struck Westminster might dial your number.

a change in attitude

After a back and forth discussion between Divine Providence and Ananias. Finally Jesus said to Ananias, “Go for he is a chosen vessel of Mine to bear My name before Gentiles, kings and the children of Israel. For I will show him, many things he must suffer for My names sake.”

Wow! What a mouthfui and it’s unfortunate that most of the populace doesn’t have a clue, as to what had been said. Mostly, because the religionist within the church have screwed things up so badly. That more, and more people just dont’t want anything to do with religion of any stripe.

From apprehension, and fear, Ananias goes to the home of Judas. There he finds the blinded Saul. Having feared Saul because of his infamous hatred for the people of the Way. He now greets him as one of them. Saying, “Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you came, has sent me that you may receive your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” Then the astonishing occurred because something fell from his eyes like scales. And he, regained his ability to see immediately. And then, he was baptized.

This padre has been pretty much paraphrased the events before and after Saul’s change of attitude which reaches back several recent discussions. For a quick review see Acts 9:1-18. But if you have the time those recent discussions are worthy reads. As will be the following two. Because they set the stage for finishing off the discussion as to how things got so bad. Cultivating with the finishing touches of discussions concerning Islam. The absolute worse scourge ever known to humanity. Superseding the evils Nazism through exponential ways!

As discussed previously, this padre honors Paul as the greatest churchman to have ever lived. Yet these discussions refer to him as Saul. That’s because when Jesus conversed with him, he called him Saul. And when Ananias visited him, he addressed him as Brother Saul.

For Saul, we don’t have an absolute declaration as to how he became known as Paul. Perhaps he thought a name change would make him less of a threat to the Jewish community. It makes sense because he wanted to be all things to all people. See 1Corninthians 9:19-23. And he referred to himself, as Paul, see Ephesians 1:1. As did Peter, in one of his epistles, see 2 Peter 3:15-16.

a street called straight

Experiences don’t get any more bizarre than what happen to Saul and his associates during yesterdays discussion. But it will, as events continue to unfold.

Saul blinded, and his associates spooked out after seeing their boss mysteriously tossed to the ground. Seeing no one in the vicinity that could have done that to Saul. All they heard was verbal communications between Saul and a voice that they couldn’t identify.

Saul had been told to go to the city and once there he’d be told what to do. Blinded, Saul had to be escorted to Damascus. As they journeyed, his associates most likely were thinking to themselves that once they got to city there would be consequences. After all, their boss was use to being the one who did the punishing. Finally they reached Damascus and secured lodging. Now everyone was becoming concerned, after all they had been there three days and the boss was still blind. And hadn’t drank anything or eaten food in three days.

Members of the Way were busing adding numbers to their movement. One of them was a man named Ananias. Divine providence has no limitations. So He came to Ananias though some kind of a vision. Ananias responded, “Here I am Lord.” He received these instructions. “Arise and go to the street called Straight. Inquire at the house of Judas, and ask for Saul of Tarsus.”

Ananias didn’t mix any words because he knew what he was dealing with when it came to Saul of Tarsus. That’s one of the problems the Way has today. The Way is busy advising Jesus instead of executing His advice. Peter coined this phrase for them, saying, “They are untaught and unstable people of the Way. They are people who twist to their own destruction the scriptures. See 2 Peter 3:16. It just happens to be that Peter was referring to the opposition Paul was encountering, who previously was the fierce prosecutor known as Saul of Tarsus.

Paul as part of his own experience was aware the others had had the same experience. So he wrote the following. But Isaiah was very bold and says, “I was found of them who did not seek me; I was made manifest to those who did not ask of Me.” See Romans 10:20.

People who have had such experiences make the best truth seekers and doers. Because they are outside of Christendoms snare. And are not tarnished by their nonsensical tirades.

The Way is in need of people who are fed up with churches as they are today. And stay as far away from them as they can, as does this padre.

How you got here is known only to you. After all what we are studying right now is the uniqueness of Divine Providence, as lives are impacted and changed. The Way has no membership, collects no money. If you are compelled by Divine Providence, study the writings of Paul, Acts through Hebrews. Got questions get in touch. Always willing to offer a helping hand. Then get it together your way and change the world around you.

people of the way

Jesus is dead! But the scourge remains, as His followers continue to promote His causes. Troubling to the authorities was that Jesus had declared Himself to be their liberator. Telling His followers that whatever they asked of Him, He would do it. What did they ask of Him? Did their questions have anything to do with undermining their authority? Or god forbid, did they ask to become the new ruling authorities?

Saul a Jew hated people who advocated an approach to God other than through Judaism. So he threaten all people who were of  the Way. Making his intentions well known by circulating his determination to murder people of the Way if necessary.

This Way rebel had left behind a frightening unusualness about Himself. As He healed the sick, returned sanity to the insane, and brought to life those who had died. Took a few fish, and some bread, and feed several thousand people.

Very disturbing to the authorities was the Ways criticism of their religious observations. By declaring themselves to be followers of the rebel who made Himself equal to God. That rebel found fault with their legal system. There was a disturbing fearsomeness about Him. For they had heard that even raging sea waters at His command were no longer threatening. The Way followers had they been given the same powers as their founder possessed?

Perhaps of greatest concern to them was His declaration that the world that they knew and cherished would be abolished. How was this to be accomplished? A degree of urgency had settled upon them. Because they knew that He had told his closest associates that in His absences, He would send another as a replacement. And was this replacement in their presences now? And if so, would His replacement have even greater influence than the Forayer they had executed?

Speculation, and fear was over, it was time to eliminate this threat. Before the threat eliminated them. So the authorities assigned a prosecutor to destroy this Way movement. Word had spread that the prosecutor, who had Stephen stoned to death was out to get them. And, that he had gotten arrest warrants for them. And was on his way to Damascus to arrest them. To be brought back to Jerusalem to stand trial. They knew he’d go right to their synagogues making them easy prey for arrest. Should they flee and hide? No, they’d stand their ground and let come what would come.

Saul on his way to Damascus got the surprise of his life. Suddenly without warning a light from the heavens above completely engulfed him. Saul fell to the ground, and a voice said to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” So Saul asked, “Who are you?” The reply changed his life forever. “I am Jesus whom you are persecuting.” What do you want from me? asked Saul. Jesus responded, “Get up, and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

Saul getting up from the ground discovered that had lost his eyesight. Shook to the very core were the men who had accompanied Saul on his journey. Frightened, and speechless because they had not seen anyone. They just heard a voice.

To be continued tomorrow.

whirlwinds of contractions settled

From the whirlwinds of contractions emerges information that you can count on. From yesterday it was said that the Jesus declaration of, “Whatever you ask, I’ll do it,” is an erroneous expectation for today.

It is often erroneous thought that the New Testament replaced Old Testament Jewish customs. It didn’t! The following writers were primarily talking to Jews. The gospels, the epistles of James through Jude. And Revelation chapters 1-5, with the remaining chapters being applicable in a more universal manner.

It was a period of transition and controversy. There we find those writers talking to Jewish believers. For them there was only one requirement in order to experience forgiveness of sin. Jesus Himself established the criteria. Recorded as. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” See John 3:16. A period of transition because the Jews were steeped in Judaism and were found in their synagogues observing Jewish orthodoxy. Controversial because some Jews were experiencing the gift of everlasting life.

The criteria for Jew or Gentile is different today. And is recorded as follows, For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. See Romans 10:4. Now the expansion of belief for Jew or Gentile, “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” See Romans 10:9-10.

Because Jesus came to His own, and they rejected Him. Instead of Jesus establishing God’s kingdom on this earth in fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies. The Father created a detour by sacrificing His only Son on the cross. With His kingdom on earth to become a reality sometime in the unknown future.

In the interim, Jesus interrupted a Jew hating prosecutor and made him His ambassador to the gentiles. For the first time in history, God decided to include we gentiles in His plan of redemption.

This padre ventures to say that most of Christendom doesn’t have the slightest clue as to the implications of what has been discussed or will be discussed. Including the implication of the words of Jesus, “If you ask anything in my name, I’ll do it.” See John 14:13-14. Adequately discussed previously with the change forthcoming. Found it necessary to lay the right foundation for the best understanding.

Powerful stuff to settle the confusion which is necessary for the Way to emerge to be what it should be. Churches without walls. With people being mobilized to practice the way of Paul for the glory of His Savior and ours, the Lord Jesus Christ.

foray of indulgence + funky trump

“ISIS is a terrorist organization, but it is not just a terrorist organization. It is a mafia adept at exploiting decades-old transnational gray markets for oil and arms trafficking. It’s have a conventional army that mobilizes and deploys foot soldiers with a professional acumen that has impressed members of the US military. But it has a sophisticated intelligence gathering apparatus that infiltrates rival organizations and silently recruits within their ranks. Including Trump’s United States.

It is also a spectral holdover of an earlier foe than al-Qaeda. Most of its top decision makers served either in Saddam Hussein’s military or security service.” So argue the best selling authors of, “ISIS: Inside the Army of Terror by Michael Weiss and Hassan Hassan. The authors provide an interesting discussion about the rise and inner workings of ISIS. There are a growing number of books available about Islamic terror because the subject has the world scared to death literally.

The problem with such books is that they only cover the peripheral subject manner. Never really getting to the core of Islamic terror. Only one source gets to the core of Islamic terror and it’s our Judeo-Christian scriptures from the book of Genesis to the book of Revelation.

By the time these discussions end the reader will understand the peripheral and the core of Islamic terror.

It will not end until Jesus slaughters the nations who gather to annihilate Israel. Here’s a primer on the subject. “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut to pieces, though all nations of the earth gathered against it.” See Zachariah 12:2-3.

That’ll be a shocker for the community of nations. Wait until this occurs because it’ll be the shocker of all shockers. “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.” See 2 Peter 3:10. Through nuclear weaponary?

Dont’t expect North Korea to become a nuclear free state. Makes more sense for North Korea to be alligned with the King of East. It’ll be easy for First Chairman Kim Jong-un to play Donald Trump. His ego will get in the way causing him to think he got something he didn’t get.

Trump thinks he got something by attacking Syria for its use of chemical weapons. Only thing Trump got was an enflated ego. Causing him to think, “Wow look at me a world changer!” He changed nothing and he’ll change nothing on the Korean Peninsula.
