The presidency what it means

Go to the ant, you sluggard! consider her ways, and be wise. Which having no captain, overseer, or ruler provides her supplies in the summer. And gathers her food in the harvest. How long will you slumber O sluggard? When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep. So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler, and your need like an armed man. A worthless person, a wicked man, walks with a perverse mouth. He winks with his eyes. He speaks shuffles his feet. He points with his fingers. Perversity is in his heart. He devises evil continually, he sows discord. Therefore, his calamity shall come suddenly. Suddenly he shall be broken without remedy, Proverbs 6:5-14.

Solomon tell us of his eventual doom. And, much can be learned from what Solomon wrote. After all he built a mighty kingdom, and most likely knew from observation what he wrote in picturesque form for us. It could be considered the behavior of American presidents in relationship to the electorate. Or for that matter, the forth coming presidency of Donald Trump.

The tale of the determined ant is the pathway to his demise. Especially today as presidential rogue thugs have created ways to lock out the peoples voice. In modern day politics the peoples voice really doesn’t matter. Most likely because politicians can’t bear to hear the truth from the electorate because it’s an affront to their sense of superiority. And in the end, that might be the legacy of President elect Trump.

If there is going to be a change in the nations political scenery it must be a national movement. Because a political assault against the electorate isn’t regional. It’s an assault against the electorate nationally; the legitimate governors of these United States. We know that the states, and the feds have mismanaged their governance that it has drastically erased what it means to be middle class. Our nation has moved to be a people of elitism of the wealthy few. Who are oppressing the majority through state and federal legislation which will make it impossible to earn sustainable income. Which by the way will be just the beginning of the electorates woes.

Soldiers know that in war, they are considered as being disposable assets by their commanders. Knowing that many have made the ultimate sacrifice for the good of the country. However, today that same scenario is being applied to the electorate. Whose value is seen as a duty to enrich the elite and wealthy of the nation, and thus are disposable. Through low wages and increasingly dangerous working conditions. The difference is that it’s not for the good of the nation. It’s just the opposite and the electorate better wake up and create different America.

It would be a mistake for retirees, or any one, except the elite, to think that they are exempt from this emerging economic slaughter. Triggered by the feds but supported by the states which will emerge to be a national assault on the electorate.

So be smart, and tank up, and return America to what it used to be which was a God fearing and obeying nation. And, you’ll be reversing current godless trends for yourself and family.

American style of governance is a true gift from God. Humans are incapable of creating three separate but equal branches of government. With the electorate seen by our founding fathers as the Creator’s masterpiece for their success. God has been removed as the cornerstone that held it all together. And that is why things in America are going to become unbearable at home and abroad.

MAYBE! Tomorrow you’ll read the result of an investigative report showing you why things are so bad for the working class and sure to get worse. Unless the people tank up and develop a democratic country. With a later discussion doing it the Jesus way.

Coexistence costly

On a particular day Jesus was meant by some angry people, who confronted him directly. Challenging Him by demanding, if you are the Christ tell us directly.

With a public out cry occurring with Jesus engaging in this exchange of words. I told you, and you believed not; the works that I do in my Father’s name they bear witness of Me. But you believed not because you are not one of us. My people hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never parish, neither shall anyone plunk them out of My Father’s hand. My Father, who gave them to Me is greater than all, and no man can plunk them out of the Father’s hand. I and my Father are one! That was more than the gathering mob could endure. This Christ, born of a woman, and equating Himself with God was worthy of death by stoning.

Jesus showing no fear said, many good works have I shown you from My Father; which of those works are going to cause you to stone me?  The mob was quick to respond. For good works, we’ll not stone you. But for equating Yourself with God, for that we’ll stone you! (source John 10:23-33)

When Jesus walked the hallowed territories of Palestine, He was often confronted by an opposing religion to his teachings. Who had the support of a wimpy political system that tried to walk on both sides of the street at the same time. Which led to the brutal murder of Jesus.

Now two thousand years later those of us, who hear His voice, and have His eternal promises which never ages. Know that we can’t be plunked from the Father’s hand because Jesus is the Father. But we can be stoned by a suicide bomber because we know Allah is not God and Muhammad has no standing as a prophet in these United States. And that Islam is a sham as a religion, and must be seen as a military political system determined to impose Islamic law upon the United States.

There are two things wrong with this scenario. Muslims disagree with my caricature of Allah and his prophet while fully waring for an America under Islamic law. While, we have a wimpy government in Washington. Doing their best to repeat the tragedy that Jesus encountered. By walking on both sides of the street at the same time. Which if allowed to continue, will result in the brutal murder of many.

The cost of discipleship is ones willingness to put oneself in harms way for Christ. As did Jesus, when declaring himself to be God. So to, must we, as Christ believers. When we denounce Islam for what it is, a military political system determined to remake America in the image of Allah and Muhammad.

The Tale of the Fox and the Brier Bush

At this time of year life in the Tampa Bay area life is becoming less comfortable because of the heat and humidity. Such conditions makes for a wide variety of outdoor activities more uncomfortable for the many different life forms.

So one day a fox was out for a stroll. The fox came upon a fence. And wondered, what could be on the other side? The fox thought to itself and decided that there was only one way to find out. Up the fence it climbed only to lose its balance. While falling, the fox grabbed onto a brier bush. Only to discover that the many thorns on the brier bush ripped into its body inflicting great pain. The fox cried out to the brier bush. And said, “I turned to you for help! Instead you have hurt me.” The brier bush responded by saying. “You wrongly judged my purpose. To become entangled with me,’ said the brier bush, “results not only in pain but much suffering.'”

The fox and the brier bush offer a lesson in expectations. Many people experience much pain and suffering during the course of the year. They will reach out for help from people, governments and religious institutions that they thought they could trust. Only to become severely hurt because trust is a tedious experience that always requires close scrutiny, so as not to get ripped off.

Before putting your trust in any Christian creed or its many doctrines investigate its tenets. You may decide Christianity is not for you. What mortal can determine truth for another? But if a serious inquiry is made, it is doubtful that would be the conclusion for ones self.

For it is written, know the truth and the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. Truth is different for each seeker. For this padre, Jesus is my truth. Especially the militancy of Christ and His church. A discussion, “Cardinal Sean O’ Malley, 22 April 2016, Which provided some examples of God’s militancy. For today, here is part of the Christ position, “I am come to send fire on the earth… verse 49, Luke 12. “Suppose that I am come to give peace on the earth, I tell you NO! but rather division, Luke 12:51. This division Christ is talking about is a division that separates our two worlds. One is light, as expressed in Luke 2:32, “A light to lighten the gentiles, and the glory of your people Israel.” From that, 22 April 2016, discussion recall our Judeo-Christian responsibilities. We will stand together in light or perish together from the onslaught of darkness. Our foes are presented to us in Ephesians 6:12, … ” against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” One world is obsessed with God’s plan for the universe with its multiple complexities of light. While the other is obsessed with the extermination of the light through governments and those raving wolves as false prophets of Matthew 7:15. The church faces two major problems today. One is that the church has allowed the government to be its ruling authority. From that, has emerged those raving wolves, who are slowing but surely snuffing out the light of Christ’ church.

People can not find the truth in modern governments. Nor from the many prophets, who announce the way to the path of God their way. Both paths are about empire building in the name God. For this fable of the fox and the brier bush, the brier bush is representative of both paths who are about empire building. The fox is representative of the seeker of truth. The seeker of truth once entangled with either path can come away with much pain and suffering. Read your Bible and take notes. From your notes, you determine whether the modern church is representative of the Christ you studied and the church He founded. Or, more representative of the brier bush. Another option is to take advantage of the services Church for Sanctuary offers the Tampa Bay community. You decide the topic you want discussed and this padre will provide the response.

Keep in mind this padre favors Christ centered militancy to check the darkness of our government. And the darkness of America’s, foes clothed in religious righteousness. With none being greater than the cancerous growth of Islam polluting the American landscape.

The Tale of the Fox and the Brier Bush, modified from Penguin Classics-Fables of Aesop-“Friend or Foe.”

In capsule form world history

Have you noticed a rather numb acknowledgment about trust in God. Like God has lost his relevancy in our modern world. And, perhaps, here is why, “How can anyone still need religion, if to explain the universe when we have science; to control the universe we have technology; to negotiate power we have politics? If you are ill go to a doctor, not a priest. If you feel guilty, you go to a psychotherapist. If you feel depressed, you take Prozac and not the book of Psalms. And if you seek salvation, you go to our new cathedrals, namely shopping centers, where you can buy happiness at extremely competitive prices,” (source:The Meaning-Seeking Animal,” The Tablet).

God looks at all that stuff this way. “Why do the heathens rage, and the people imagine vain things? The Kings of the earth set themselves up, and the rulers take counsel against the LORD, and against His anointed (Christ) saying, let us break their bands asunder (believers), and cast away their cords from us (rendering God’s message useless),” Psalms 2:1-3. And no doubt this contempt for God is the result of the opening paragraph. But it’ll end this way, “He that sits in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall have them in derision,” Psalms 2:4.Then the judgment, “Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, and shall distress them with His great displeasure,” Psalms 2:5. And finally, “Yet have I set My King upon the holy hill of Zion,” Psalms 2:6.

It’s rather amazing because in six verses, God has placed before us the history of the world. The worlds rejections of obedience to edicts, statutes and ordinances, verses 1-2. Thinking that they had put any God notions to sleep forever with the crucifixion of Christ, verse three, But He is resurrected, and from heaven, laughs, verse four. Finally, comes the long promised judgment, and His earthly kingdom, in Jerusalem, verses 5-6. With of course, centuries of history between each one of those verses.

Is it so victory 2 those who want it most

SHOCKING: U.S. reports that 100 Americans have joined ISSI’ as they struggle to overthrow the government of Basher al-Assad. The government reports that some of those Islamic warriors have returned to America. When will they turn their guns on Americans, as they struggle to conquer the world for Islam?

Support Israel’s Operation Protective Edge. Every tunnel must be destroyed that allows Arab Muslims to enter Israel to kidnap and murder Jews. The United States has a big with no bite! They condemn Russ for its support of Ukrainian rebels as they fight to become apart of the Russian confederation. So at least, why doesn’t the United States the same mouth to Iran? As the Iranians train and arm the Islamist in the Gaza strip to kill Jews regardless of age or gender.

The United States demonstrates its complete impotency in world affairs as it continues to allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons. In the end, if there is an end to a nuclear armed Iran it’ll come from Israel. Who enjoys this eternal promise, “Up, Zion! Escape, you who dwell with the daughter of Babylon,” Zachariah 2:8. America is the daughter of Babylon. For thus says the LORD of hosts, “He sent me after the glory to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye,” Zachariah 2:8.

So tell your representatives through out the United States government to go after Iran as they go after Russia. Instead of all the excuse making coming from Secretary of State John Kerry that he calls diplomacy. Which the Iranians and the world knows is useless rhetoric for more time for nuclear bomb making. Do it before the boys and girls of do nothing exit Washington for their summer recess.

Terror center stage ISSI

What is old is becoming new, as Daniel proves that stuff to be true. Said Daniel, “And he changes the times and seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise, and knowledge to those who have understanding.” Text:Daniel 2:21. Governments will fall; new ones will take their place; it’s the changing of the times and seasons. He will give them wisdom and understanding to them on how to confuse and confront those who don’t like the changing times. Because the new seasons will be most unfavorable to them. Wake up U.S.A.

For heavens sake dear God, why not leave things as they are? The old masters were bad enough and the new masters are older than the old masters. And! A whole lot meaner. Strange world, the world of the real.

Here’s why, you have fooled around with my inheritance, Israel and allowed the apple of my eye to be plundered. Texts:Jeremiah 51:19c and Zachariah 2:8. So there’s a need for a change in the hierarchy. So it will be.

This padre holds that the false prophet and Antichrist will be Muslims. And has suggested in previous discussions that their empire will be administered from modern day Turkey. And this padre has written that Muslims will destroy the United States, perhaps with a nuclear weapon.

Remember yesterdays discussion about the beast with the head wound unto death that was and healed, and all the world marveled.Text:Revelation 13:3. It’s argued hear that the thought to be mortally wounded beast was the Ottoman Empire. Which will be revived in this 21st. century to terrorize the world. Grouping its power and authority from Revelation 17:12. “The ten horns … are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet. These are of one mind, and they will give their power a authority to the beast. These will make war with the Lamb …” Texts:Revelation 17:12-14a. Two comments:The ten kings will be a united confederation of Arab Muslim states. And the waters where the harlot sits are people, multitudes, nations and tongues. They are the peoples and their nations of modern western society. The ten horned Arab Muslim states. These will hate the harlot, (U.S.) making her desolate and naked. Eating her flesh with the burning of fire. Suggestive of a nuclear attack. “For God has put it into their to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled.”  And the woman whom you saw is that  great city which rules over the kings of the earth? That great city is the United States. Texts:17:15-18.

Just some food for thought because there’s a whole lot more giving greater credence to this argument.

Recall the recently declared state of ISSI or the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq. Holding territorial lands within both Syria and Iraq. Done without treaty, fanfare of any sort, or anyone’s permission. Wasting no time by appointing a caliph. ISSI spokes person, Abu Muhammad al-Adnani declared, “He’s the imam and caliph for Muslims everywhere.” ISSI’ announced that its leader, Abu Bakr al-Gaghdadi has universal authority. As caliph he’s thought to be a successor to the Prophet Mohammad. As caliph he’s the Muslim world’s political and military leader. Picked up by global news sources, and shared is an ambitious goal of the caliphate to return borders created by colonial powers to there precolonial days.

If the declaration of a successor to Mohammad as caliph, can withstand the jolts of illusionism coming from some parts of the Arab Muslim world. In particular the negative reaction from the Grand Mufti of Egypt. Then, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as anointed caliph might well be the Antichrist.

If his position as caliph gains recognition by other Muslim states in the region; its going to mobilize an insurmountable fighting force for the community of nations to deal with. It’s been reported that at least 100 American Muslims have joined ISSI. They did so by using their passports to fly to Turkey. Then before ISSI existed they slipped into Syria to fight with the rebel group against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.That occurred by the rebel force issuing a verbal call for Muslims globally to join the fight. It’s a reasonable assumption that mosque leaders globally encouraged a response to that call. Including mosque leaders from within the United States. Simply put, the world, and in particular the United States can’t war successfully against the forces of ISSI.

For Americans, talk about terror, it’ll take on a new meaning, when ISSI issues a call to attack us. And to take it a step further the call is issued to Muslims everywhere to flood to America to join the fight against the infidels.

Some politicians like Sen. Rubio of Florida are saying that the United States must involve itself militarily in Iraq against ISSI. A statement of complete incompetence by the senator. And most likely by his colleagues on both sides of the aisle. Which clearly shows his ignorance concerning modern warfare against the Muslim world. Obviously the White House is clueless also. Said it before, so I’ll say it again; if America is to be saved it’ll be through its Christian population. And a special breed of Christians which are those who name Jesus Christ as their personal redeemer.

For those really desperate to understand our world, don’t rely upon traditional media sources. They are locked into the godless nonsense of inclusiveness and political correctness. Tied to the big money of corporate conglomerates. Where offensiveness is deadly because it effects their profits; and the Devil smiles. Therefore use your computer to search the internet comparing and contrasting your discoveries. Most important determine how those discoveries match up with what the Bible says.

Getting to know yourself

People are curious creatures because believe it or not, we all are created in his image. Which suggests, that God also is curious. But his curiosity seems to be more intuitive because he already knows how things end from the beginning. Certainly God would not get any satisfaction, if for example, he exercised his proclivity. By creating a species in his image that knew nothing other than to bless, honor, glorify and worship their creator.

So God spared himself of having a species that catered to his wishes to be honored, glorified and worshiped in an involuntary manner. By allowing his human species the freedom not to honor or worship him. So he set the world on a course that would either bless, honor, glorify and worship him or reject such a proposition. And from that decision, we have today’s world.

Which seems to have scriptural support. There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil. He was wealthy and it was said that this man was the greatest of all people of the East.

Then on a particular day God struck up a conversation with Satan. Asking, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is none like him on the earth. A blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil?” And Satan answers, not so because you have created an environment that gives him no other alternative.

Satan challenged God by demanding that choice should be given to Job. And asserting do that, and he’ll curse you to your face. And God replied to Satan saying, “Behold  all that he has is in your power; only do not lay hand on his person.” And, Job suffered great losses. But he was still unmoved to curse God. Instead he blessed, honored and glorified God. In it is said this way, “In all this Job did not sin nor charge God with wrong.

Later Satan and God had another encounter. And a reiteration of the aforementioned reoccurred. But this time God scolds Satan. By saying, “Still he holds fast to his integrity, although you have incited me against him, to destroy him without cause.”

Satan responded, “Skin for skin! Yes all that a man has will he give for his life.” Then we have this Satanic challenge, “Stretch out your hand now! And touch his bone and his flesh, and he’ll surely curse you to your face.” And an angry God said to Satan, “Behold he is in your hand, but spare his life.”

And Satan did just that and Job suffered. And along come Job’s wife. Asking, “Do you still hold fast to your integrity? Curse God and die!”

And Job said to his wife, “You speak as a foolish woman speaks, Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips. Texts:Job Chapters 1-2:9. Life is all about freedom to chose.

In the scriptures shared this question is asked of Satan twice. And the LORD said to Satan, “From where do you come?” Satan answered, From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it.” Texts:Job 1:7;Job 2:2. There is a Satanic presence on this earth and it’s a struggle to determine how curious human creatures respond to challenges to bless, honor, glorify and worship their creator. And from around that, revolves world turmoil.

Because choice exist to dishonor ones creator by denying that a creator exists. Asserting that world turmoil is a struggle for the survival by nations. And the nation most advanced technologically, sets the perimeters for that struggle. A role the United States has played on the world scene for sometime. But America got there because of reliance upon the wisdom of divine providence. But a new god has captured the nations attention, and God refers to his challenger as the god of idolatry. Idolatry in this instance is the worship of technology.

If you don’t know yourself, than you will not understand the unraveling of the United States. And to really know yourself, you must experience, Romans 10:9-10. Which brings about the understanding recorded in, 2 Corinthians 5:17.

And tomorrows discussion will help you understand why. It’s because the Word of God is a closed voice for most searchers of any issue; unless one can confirm the voices of Romans and Corinthians. It’s part of the mysteriousness of divine conscientiousness. If you haven’t already entered Jesus’ inner group, now is the time.

Is it U

The old priest lay dying in a hospital. For years he had faithfully served the people in the nations capital. He motioned for his nurse to come closer.

“Yes Father?” said the nurse. “I would like to see the democratic senate majority leader, Sen. Harry Reid and the republican leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell before I die,” whispered the priest.

I’ll see what I can do Father,” replied the nurse.

The nurse sent the request to them and waited for a response. Soon the word arrived. Harry and Mitch, would be delighted to visit the priest. As they went to the hospital, Harry commented to Mitch, “I don’t know why the old priest wants to see us, but it will certainly help our image,” Mitch couldn’t help but agree.

When they arrived at the priest’s room, the priest took Mitch’s hand in his right and Harry’s in his left. There was silence, and a look of serenity on the old priest’s face.

Finally Mitch spoke, “Father of all the people you could have chosen, why did you choose us to be with you near the end?”

The priest slowly replied, “I have always tried to pattern my life after my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” The old priest continued, “He died between two lying thieves. I wanted to do the same.” (source unknown)

What can one say, after all that’s what it means to be a politician. Time to clean house, not with the recycled newcomers, who run as Republicans or Democrats. But with something entirely, very new, therefore, very different. Not from the rag bag of yesterday.

But first a recall of something that doesn’t get a lot of media attention but should. Because its about truth telling and not oneupmenship which is a constant political game played on capital hill, at the expense of the people. Who’s the blame? We the electorate because we allow it to occur!

Angered over how the various political crises that keeps playing out? Then transfer your anger into change. Hopefully, tomorrows posting might be helpful to that end.
