Intro to Gov. Sarah Palin Writes To The Elijah List Family!

Below is an email from the Elijah List of which I am a subscriber. Theologically I may not agree with everything the Elijah List stands for, yet I do agree with much. The Elijah List is a for profit Christian organization that is of the charismatic persuasion emphasizing the Prophetic Movement.

I realize a lot of Christians may have a problem with the Prophetic Movement but you really need to get over it if you are one those problematic Christians. The Elijah List believes in the basics of the Christian faith and that is good enough for me. Ergo, try and hold up on the ‘heresy’ comments that many will wish to share.

Publisher Steve Shultz has a little marketing intro to a Sarah Palin email for the Elijah List subscribers and that is what I am sharing with my blog readers.

Elijah List

I’ll be honest! I was super jazzed two years ago to learn that Governor Sarah Palin reads “The Elijah List” every day!

Back in 2013, we shared how she wrote:

“The Elijah List has been a blessing to my family in many ways…Often God gives encouragement through an article that seems to be written just for situations we face at a specific time…The Elijah List team is working so hard to provide a modern forum that strives to ‘strengthen, encourage, and comfort, the Body of Christ!” -Gov. Sarah Palin

Today, I’m happy to provide a “new article” that Gov. Palin has just sent me, written specifically for our Elijah List readers!

You’re going to be super encouraged by it. I hope you’ll check out her new Devotional book, “SWEET FREEDOM” which we carry…this is just hot off the press! Here’s the link: www.elijahshopper.com/sweet-freedom-a-devotional-by-sarah-palin.

Also, one of Sarah Palin’s favorite pieces of art (pictured below on her mantle) is a picture of Jesus, “cracking up” laughing, that she ordered from THE ELIJAH LIST by artist Jennifer Page. She took a photo of it so Elijah List readers could see it.

We’ve made sure there are plenty of these available for you when you order today…so you can get one for yourself and a friend!

I LOVE THAT PICTURE OF JESUS LAUGHING!!

Please keep Sarah Palin in your prayers and be sure to forward this article to your family and friends!

Enjoy!

Gov. Sarah Palin Writes To The Elijah List Family!”

Sarah Palin, Wasilla, Alaska

Dear Elijah List Family,

I don’t necessarily like to be known as a “politician.” When the descriptive noun is applied to me in national interviews I jokingly plea that the reporter not use the “p-word” around me. However, it comes with the territory when one has held office and remains involved with a passion for political and cultural reform. Having been there, and willingly remaining in the lion’s den of politics, this politician can see clearly our nation is in a critical season of transition. For many, these are the most frightening days of their lives. Now more than ever our hope must be in the One True God. He is our only hope. He is our security. Not knowing what tomorrow holds, we must know who holds tomorrow.

Many in government and media try to convince us that God should not be in the political arena with us, invoking the concept of “separation of church and state.” Don’t be deceived into believing we can survive, much less thrive, without Him! Do you know where the phrase “separation of church and state” actually comes from? If you guessed the U.S. Constitution or our Declaration of Independence, you’d be wrong.

Thomas Jefferson referred to it in a letter to the Danbury Baptist Association, which had written him seeking help. Connecticut had established a state church – the Congregational Church, which meant the Baptists’ religious freedom was not an inherent right, but a favor granted by the state. Jefferson wrote to the Baptists that he shared their belief in religious freedom and that under the First Amendment was enshrined “a wall of separation” between the federal government and the churches; the government was not allowed to interfere with religion, guidance he expected the states would follow in perpetuity.

Today, it’s hip to invoke “separation of church and state” to insinuate or even demand that the Church have no influence on government and no role in politics. That is exactly wrong. In fact, Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptists closes with an invocation of God and prayer. (Photo Sweet Freedom: A Devotional – by Sarah Palin via elijahshopper.com)

Another great American founder, General George Washington, commanded the Continental Army under a flag featuring an evergreen tree and the words “An Appeal to Heaven.” Today, it is imperative that we continue in the tradition of our founders in appealing to Heaven for the survival of our country; not only our leaders, but as voters.

Every campaign season, voters face decisions based on many reports. It can be easy to feel fearful of the doom and gloom you hear from big dog media and popular pundits, but as Believers we can take comfort in knowing our God is bigger, stronger, wiser, and so much more merciful towards us than anything we hear in the news.

Use Caleb and Joshua as our example. They were men of faith, not fear. God directed Moses to send twelve spies to Canaan. Ten spies saw giants in the land and relayed fearful reports. They felt as small as grasshoppers and wanted to just hop away into oblivion. But Caleb and Joshua ignored the giants. With unrelenting trust, they went up at once and took possession, “for we are well able to overcome.” They knew they were more than conquerors through our mighty God!

Friends, Caleb and Joshua ‘r us! And it’s time to take possession! Our examples didn’t hesitate – we’ve hesitated long enough, America – we must “go up at once!” and stake claim of this land of the free. Ignore the media giants and consider how to help and whom God would have you support.

When I was chosen to run for Vice President of the United States, I prayed voters would see through the media haze to see who we, as candidates, really were. Maybe I didn’t pray hard enough! Today, many Goliaths are in our nation’s path. Just as He led Moses’ men to see clearly, He’ll give you the same confidence as you seek His direction, personally and politically. It’s imperative we support godly, competent leaders.

(Photo by Jennifer Page “His Joy” via elijahshopper.com)

Between 1933 and 1981, there was only one major presidential address that included the words “God bless America.” But when Ronald Reagan kicked off his presidency by invoking God’s blessing on our nation, he set a new standard. From his inauguration through President George W. Bush’s final term, the phrase was used forty-nine times, and President Obama continued the practice. Our Presidents call out to God. Great! But we need some reciprocity. Our purpose is not just to be blessed by God, but to bless Him.

Our Founders sought the Lord when embarking on this grand experiment called America, knowing they needed Him if they were to break away from tyranny and to secure freedom.

For God’s favor to remain, we must turn back to Him and not squander America’s blessings of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Today, thank God for blessing us. Remember Psalm 33:12: “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He chose for His inheritance.” Pray every heart turns to Him. Take action! Invite God back into this nation – His nation. Rededicate America back to Him.

And have fun doing it. Really! Do not fear and don’t let your children fear. Remind them our Warrior King has the whole world in His hands and He wants us to be bold and joyful despite less than ideal circumstances.

Upon my fireplace hearth is a beautiful picture I ordered from the Elijah List. Artist Jennifer Page depicts the smiling Son of God as our happy Savior full of the vibrant life He freely offers us. In my living room, Jesus is cracking up! I want my family to look up and see He is the cup of overflowing laughter, carefree sweet freedom, and miraculous blessings we can drink from to nourish our homes and our nation if we’ll all look up and believe Nehemiah 8:10, “The joy of the Lord is your strength!”

Merry, merry Christmas brothers and sisters!

The Commonality between Leftist Paradigms & Scientific Theories

Truth & Theories are not NECESSARILY the Same

 

John R. Houk

© March 13, 2014

 

I received a comment from a person who identified himself as “dougindeap” which if you do the word/space separation is obviously “Doug in Deep”. Or anyway that was my first interpretive inclination. My guess is the person’s name is Doug but euphemistically symbolized “dug” as in digging a hole. So I presumed that “deap” was a euphemism for digging in deep as in being entrenched in a position to stand one’s ground when attacked. However I decided I had better look and see if there is a word “deap” and if so find out its meaning.

 

I soon found via Google there are applications of the word “DEAP” as an acronym. I quickly eliminated the first item on the search – “Urban Dictionary: DEAP”. This first Google item references “DEAP” as the name of a RAP artist from Philadelphia born as Ricardo Leon Jr.

 

The next item on Google I inadvisably skipped over allowing the third Google search item to catch my eye – “DEAP – Definition by AcronymFinder”. This took me to a page that asked the question: “What does DEAP stand for?” Followed by a short list of acronyms for DEAP:

 

All definitions (13)

 

1)     DEAP: Developmental Educational Assistance Program

 

2)     DEAP: Dwelling Energy Assessment Procedure (Ireland)

 

3)     DEAP: Disability Entitlement Advocacy Program

 

4)     DEAP: Drop Everything and Pray

 

5)     DEAP: Directional Electrostatic Accretion Process

 

6)     DEAP: Dark Matter Experiment using Argon Pulse-shape discrimination

 

7)     DEAP: Diffused Eutectic Aluminum Process

 

8)    DEAP: Descendants of Early American Peoples

 

9)     DEAP: Direct Entry and Advanced Placement

 

10)DEAP: Disaster Emergency Awareness & Preparedness

 

11)DEAP: Dundee Employment and Aftercare Project Ltd (Scotland)

 

12)DEAP: Disability Equipment Assessment Programme

 

13)DEAP: Diplôme d’Etat d’Auxiliaire de Puériculture (French: Qualification for Childcare Assistants)

 

The list numbers are added by me and not AcronymFinder.

 

Just as a reminder I embarked on this quest of looking at acronyms for “DEAP” to see if there is a different meaning than my first impression for commenter “dougindeap”. At this point I have decided the quest is a wild goose chase which I am way too often guilty of participating. Nevertheless, I continue to digress.

 

I did not point out that at the very top of the Google search page was a definition directly given for “DEAP”:

 

Web definitions

 

DEAP is a direct dark matter search experiment using liquid argon as target material. DEAP utilizes background discrimination based on the characteristic scintillation pulse shape in argon. …

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DEAP

 

I did not click the Wikipedia link. Although Wikipedia is convenient their content is based on a collective of contributors that may or may not be credible and are typically slanted toward the Left in editorial content. I am not averse to using Wikipedia as a source like most of academia is; however I do like to look at correlative sources to gage the accuracy of a Wikipedia article. Interestingly the Wikipedia excerpt at the top of the page was number 6 on the AcronymFinder list: Dark Matter Experiment using Argon Pulse-shape discrimination.

 

You can look at the other acronyms for DEAP in your own wild goose chase but I am focusing on the dark matter experimenting using argon pulse-shape discrimination:

 

Liquid argon based Dark Matter detection

 

Dark matter makes up about 25% of our universe, yet it has never been detected. The goal of the DEAP experiment is to directly observe and identify this dark matter component of the universe. This will be achieved by observing the elastic scattering of dark matter particles, probably in the form of Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs), from argon nuclei. Argon in its liquid form is a favorable detection medium for Dark Matter searches because it has a high stopping power against ionizing radiation and good light yield, it allows for any desired detector shape and, due to its low cost, for a large detector mass. A very low background can be reached due to ease of purification and scintillation characteristics which are suitable for achieving very powerful pulse shape discrimination. A prototype detector, DEAP-1, has READ THE REST (DEAP: Liquid argon based Dark Matter detection; DEAP Project Director – Mark Boulay; Department of Physics, Stirling Hall, Queen’s University at Kingston, Kingston, Ontario, Canada; http://deap.phy.queensu.ca/)

 

O yeah, you might as well be speaking Greek or Chinese to me in my comprehension ability here. Nonetheless, this is what I gleaned about DEAP. Physicists believe Dark Matter exists; HOWEVER the primary component that science thrives on – AND is the primary reason there are so many non-believing Western scientists as far as Christianity goes – IS MISSING. Science thrives on OBSERVING in order to MEASURE something that is studied. If something cannot be observed it cannot be measured. If something cannot be measured then its reality is not proven. So if an abundance of data is out there that suggest something should be there to measure the preponderance of science decides to make an educated guess and stipulate it is there. BUT it cannot be observed there; hence the educated guess is a THEORY. Science believes that something is there because data suggests something is there? I think the word that should be on the tip of your tongue is FAITH. Faith is that pesky little belief system that knows there is something there subjectively by deciding to completely KNOW something is there. For Christians we KNOW God exists not because of a measurable/observable feeling in the sense realm but because of an immeasurable inner subjective experience in the spiritual realm.

 

Okay so DEAP was my wild goose chase in making an attempt to understand any hidden meaning in the pseudonym of “dougindeap”. More than likely my first impression was correct in that a person choosing to go by Doug has dug in deep holding to a position believed to be the only answer.

 

Dougindeap made a comment to a blot post I made at the NeoConservative Christian Right (NCCR) entitled “Returning to a Christian Moral Stand will Perpetuate the USA”. You can tell from my title that I believe Christian Morality is what has made the USA good and as long as America is good then the USA is great. America has been that shining city on a hill that has been a beacon of light shining to the world that when a government is accountable to the people Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness is an honorable and a Creator endowed quest for humanity to attain.

 

 

13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.

 

14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5: 13-16 NKJV)

 

 

I found President Ronald Reagan’s January 1989 Oval Office Farewell Address on video. You should listen to the entire speech. This is a speech about what it is to be an American. At the very end watch the portion about the city on a hill (18 minute 30 second spot):

 

VIDEO: Farewell Speech – President Reagan’s Farewell Speech from the Oval Office 1/11/89

 

 

For America to remain good it is my contention that a Christian America influencing government keeps government from embracing human-centered (humanistic) greed and corruption that sways away the created from the Creator. I believe the Founding Fathers believed this AND contrary to Church/State separationist propaganda even the maligned Deist Founding Fathers believed this. Here’s why.

 

American Deists were very different from European Deists. American Deists were completely dedicated to the Biblical Morality the Christian Creator bestowed upon humanity through Jesus Christ. They believed that without the morality in the Bible to be the crux of community humanity would bend toward evil corruption destroying the rule of law that makes society cohesive. A nation of evil voters means the election of evil morally corrupt leaders. Morally corrupt leaders leads to corrupt government. Corrupt government leads to government-centered power. Government-centered power leads to despotism. Despotism leads to an oppression that robs individuals of a choice on how to achieve Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

 

European Deists – as exampled particularly in the French Revolution – excludes a Divine influence of a moral standard. Rather European Deists believed that whatever humanity defines as the standard of morality is the only compass to follow for life’s decisions and existence. The butchery of the French Revolution that ultimately led to the bloody realization of an absolute ruler in Napoleon Bonaparte bent on European conquest from France in the West to Russia in the East to Britain in the North and even to North Africa in the South to force humanity under a one-man rule to be the paradigm of Secular Humanism.

 

And so Dougindeap follows the Left Wing propaganda (which is even presumed by a number of deluded Conservatives) that the Founding Fathers overtly established the principle of Separation of Church and State in the U.S. Constitution AND that the Judicial Branch correctly asserted this principle in judicial decisions including our present time. I am going to do a rebuttal to Dougindeap’s assertions in a future post. Below are his thoughts. Just one more thing though pertaining to the judiciary. New Hampshire became the ninth State to ratify the Constitution on June 21, 1788. The U.S. government began operation on March 4, 1789. The Supreme Court of the United States of America did not make today’s interpretation of the First Amendment pertaining Church/State separation the law until 1947 with the majority opinion delivered by Justice Hugo Black. Dougindeap’s assertion of Judicial consistency in upholding Separation of Church and State as in keeping the Christian faith out of anything to do with taxpayer money simply is not supported by the facts.

Separation of church and state is a bedrock principle of our Constitution, much like the principles of separation of powers and checks and balances. In the first place, the Supreme Court has thoughtfully, authoritatively, and repeatedly decided as much; it is long since established law. In the second place, the Court is right. In the Constitution, the founders did not simply say in so many words that there should be separation of powers and checks and balances; rather, they actually separated the powers of government among three branches and established checks and balances. Similarly, they did not merely say there should be separation of church and state; rather, they actually separated them by (1) establishing a secular government on the power of “We the people” (not a deity), (2) according that government limited, enumerated powers, (3) saying nothing to connect that government to god(s) or religion, (4) saying nothing to give that government power over matters of god(s) or religion, and (5), indeed, saying nothing substantive about god(s) or religion at all except in a provision precluding any religious test for public office. Given the norms of the day (by which governments generally were grounded in some appeal to god(s)), the founders’ avoidance of any expression in the Constitution suggesting that the government is somehow based on any religious belief was quite a remarkable and plainly intentional choice. They later buttressed this separation of government and religion with the First Amendment, which affirmatively constrains the government from undertaking to establish religion or prohibit individuals from freely exercising their religions. The basic principle, thus, rests on much more than just the First Amendment.

 

That the words “separation of church and state” do not appear in the text of the Constitution assumes much importance, it seems, to some who mistakenly supposed they were there and, upon learning of their error, fancy they’ve solved a Constitutional mystery. To those familiar with the Constitution, the absence of the metaphorical phrase commonly used to name one of its principles is no more consequential than the absence of other phrases (e.g., Bill of Rights, separation of powers, checks and balances, fair trial, religious liberty) used to describe other undoubted Constitutional principles.

 

To the extent that some nonetheless would like confirmation–in those very words–of the founders’ intent to separate government and religion, Madison and Jefferson supplied it. Some try to pass off the Supreme Court’s decision in Everson v. Board of Education as simply a misreading of Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptists–as if that were the only basis of the Court’s decision. Instructive as that letter is, it played but a small part in the Court’s decision. Rather, the Court discussed the historical context in which the Constitution and First Amendment were drafted, noting the expressed understanding of Madison perhaps even more than Jefferson, and only after concluding its analysis and stating its conclusion did the Court refer–once–to Jefferson’s letter, largely to borrow his famous metaphor as a clever label or summary of its conclusion. The notion, often heard, that the Court rested its decision solely or largely on that letter is a red herring.

 

Madison, who had a central role in drafting the Constitution and the First Amendment, confirmed that he understood them to “[s]trongly guard[] . . . the separation between Religion and Government.” Madison, Detached Memoranda (~1820).

 

Indeed, he understood the original Constitution–without the First Amendment–to separate religion and government. He made plain, too, that they guarded against more than just laws creating state sponsored churches or imposing a state religion. Mindful that even as new principles are proclaimed, old habits die hard and citizens and politicians could tend to entangle government and religion (e.g., “the appointment of chaplains to the two houses of Congress” and “for the army and navy” and “[r]eligious proclamations by the Executive recommending thanksgivings and fasts”), he considered the question whether these actions were “consistent with the Constitution, and with the pure principle of religious freedom” and responded: “In strictness the answer on both points must be in the negative. The Constitution of the United States forbids everything like an establishment of a national religion.”

 

While some also draw meaning from the variously phrased references to god(s) in the Declaration of Independence (references that could mean any number of things, some at odds with the Christian idea of God) and try to connect that meaning to the Constitution, the effort is largely baseless. Important as the Declaration is in our history, it did not operate to bring about independence (that required winning a war), nor did it found a government, nor did it even create any law, and it certainly did not say or do anything that somehow dictated the meaning of a Constitution adopted twelve years later. The colonists issued the Declaration not to do any of that, but rather to politically explain and justify the move to independence that was already well underway. Nothing in the Constitution depends on anything said in the Declaration. Nor does anything said in the Declaration purport to limit or define the government later formed by the free people of the former colonies. Nor could it even if it purported to do so. Once independent, the people of the former colonies were free to choose whether to form a collective government at all and, if so, whatever form of government they deemed appropriate. They were not somehow limited by anything said in the Declaration. Sure, they could take its words as inspiration and guidance if, and to the extent, they chose–or they could not. They could have formed a theocracy if they wished–or, as they ultimately chose, a government founded on the power of the people (not a deity) and separated from religion.

Genesis-Creation and Redemption


Creator of Heavens and Earth

John R. Houk

© September 15, 2013

 

If you visited my blogs in the past you are aware that I am a Christian Right kind of guy. What the Bible says is what I believe. Now saying that I am going to state something that will make some disagreeable and others agreeable. I am not a the-earth-was-created-6000-years-ago kind of guy.

 

During the period of 1650 to 1654 Protestant Bishop James Ussher published his studies of the age of the Earth as chronicled literally in the Bible. His published conclusion was that God created the Earth in 4004 BC (Before Christ). Ussher’s scholarship based on the literal time data derived from the Bible is actually quite brilliant.

 

I however, do not believe time periods in the Bible – or at least in the Old Testament – are not literal according to material linear time. You see I do believe God made Creation ex nihilo by speaking His handiwork into existence. BUT I believe God’s twinkling of the eye is not something that can be measured accurately in human corporeal understanding. The Eternal dimension of God’s dwelling is immeasurable.

 

The Genesis Creation epic God has allowed us to see in His Word, I believe, is not in the realm of 24 hour human understanding.

 

8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us,[a] not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3: 8-9 NKJV)

 

This tells me that human linear time does not measure up to God’s plan as it pertains to human reasoning. And the one day/thousand years comparison then should not be taken literally either. Although I don’t think it is impossible for God Almighty to make creation in 24 hour periods; however that which humans can measure seems to indicate that God did not take that path. So I am not going to commit myself to believing creation happened in terms of thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands or millions of years or whatever human concept of time.

 

Now granted the context of 2 Peter 3: 8-9 is that God is not slack in completing the Redemption plan of humanity. The first instalment of Redemption is that the Blood of Christ Redeems the human spirit by changing the old man corrupted by Adam’s Fall is created anew becoming a new person in Christ Jesus – behold old things have passed away and our human spirit is a new creation. Jesus Christ is coming back to Redeem humanity fully. Not just the human spirit but soul and body as well. The context in the Second Epistle of Peter is the coming Full Redemption of humanity; nevertheless it is an indication that our God who lives outside of time made his Creation according to an Eternal existence which in the material world could be measured in any number of ways that the Word of God tries to simplify for human comprehension.

 

Now I have quite probably taken too long to get to the point. I just read an article on WND which is a promotion of a movie production that is entitled “Genesis 3D”. The movie is the Creationism view is valid because it is the Word of God and Evolution is fallacious because it is thought of a man’s theory; viz., Charles Darwin.

 

 

I am a Creationist except for that 6000 year human measured chronology thing. Evolutionism is a theory that STILL is not a proven fact. The only verifiable data on Evolution is that changing environment can change the genetics of an organism as observed in short termed experimental evidence. Using short term evidence for long term conclusions is a stretch in which science utilizes predictions and conjectural constructs for a preconceived conclusion.

 

I will stick with the Word of God which to those who Believe by Faith know is Truth.

 

1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.

 

3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. (Hebrews 11: 1-3 NKJV)

 

By “faith” God framed existence ex nihilo by His Spoken Word. Human theory cannot definitively paint a picture of existence’s beginnings when that theory is outside of the Word of God. AND as much as the proponents of science proclaims the theory is the truth, science has NEVER found the observable evidence that makes a validating connection to Evolutionary theory.

 

Here is the Truth as disseminated by the Word of God:

 

1 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was[a] on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

 

3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.

 

6 Then God said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” 7 Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.

 

9 Then God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good.

 

11 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 13 So the evening and the morning were the third day.

 

14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. 16 Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. 17 God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

 

20 Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.” 21 So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 23 So the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

 

24 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

 

26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all[b] the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

 

29 And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. 30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so. 31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

 

2 1 Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. 2 And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.

 

4 This is the history[a] of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, 5 before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown. For the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground; 6 but a mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground.

 

7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. (Genesis 1; 2: 1-7 NKJV)

American Voters are Accepting of Leftist Principles


American takes Flag from sickle-hammer

John R. Houk

© December 3, 2012

 

I believe there was a time that American voters had a concern about stealth Marxism/Communism transforming America into a Collective in which Liberty and Civil Rights were defined by the State rather than Constitutional Rule of Law. After Election 2012 I now believe Americans could care less about American Freedoms. People are simply willing to have their lives and culture defined by the State.

 

Feel me, hear me, see me and touch me and tell me what to believe for my own good. The toehold to despotism is the illusion of government dependent beneficence. If the government is the hand that feeds you and the creator of a temporal synthetic existence causing security euphoria, then actual Liberty won and instituted by law by the people and for the people will be lost to an oligarchic bureaucracy that in turn has government policy distributed by a ruling elite.

 

The polarization in America is between hardcore Leftists that have convinced (apparently most) Americans that a Secular Humanist, Multicultural Diverse and Judeo-Christian destroying society is the path to utopia AND those Americans that have an awareness of fiscal responsibility, Social Conservatism based on Judeo-Christianity as well as the Original Intent of the Founding Fathers revolutionizing the Rule of Law of a Representative Republic.

 

We Americans on the Right side of the polarized scale must step up our level to communicate to Americans the risks to American Liberty by unwittingly investing in the Socialist-Marxist-Communist journey to the illusion of a man-made utopia. Friends, there is no such thing as a utopia that realizes the greater good for the betterment of humankind when the architect is man.

 

Yes, I am a Christian. I am a Christian that believes a great debt is owed to Jews. Even though the Jews do not share the Christian sentiment of Salvation in Christ Jesus, the New Testament clearly proclaims that Salvation is of the Jews. Our Savior was born a Jew, raised a Jew and lived as a Jew in His earthly walk that led to the Crucifixion, Death and bodily Resurrection that Christians believe brings Deliverance from bondage of a Satan influenced age and a transference to the Kingdom of God.

 

The only utopia on planet Earth will be after the Creator forms the New Earth-New Jerusalem and the New Heaven in which the nations that have come to their senses believe in the Kingship of Jesus Christ. The Rule of Law will not be devised by humanity; rather humanity will have the Will of God imprinted in their new creation spirit knowing instantly the good rejecting any evil that separates from God Almighty.

 

Yes that is correct. I injected faith and politics as the God-Kind of life that government will be like without humanity calling the shots. The Founding Fathers realized that government should not have any business in religion yet that religion (specifically the Christian religion) must be the conscience of government. Robbing America of a Christian conscience has slowly changed our society in which greed, violence and distrust are embedded in our culture.

 

We Americans of the Right must find a way to reinstill the vision of the Founding Fathers complete with the conscience that keeps government in line and by extension our culture in a better moral state.

 

You may wonder what set off this line of thought. Well it was an article by Trevor Loudon that exposes the tentacles of the Left forming policy of the Democratic Party as administered by the Obama regime on the USA.

Natural Born Sinners


Hell or Heaven - Rom. 6-23

A Youtube friend sent me one of the most awesome sermons I have read for a person to choose Life in Christ Jesus the Redeemer-Savior.

 

Even if you are a Christian this is a good refresher of the reason you are Born Again. At the end of the sermon CBYakima has a video by TheAbaloneKid. The two may be one and the same person or two good friends. I am uncertain; nevertheless be sure to read and grasp the sermon that is a road map to Salvation in Christ.

Natural Born Sinners

 

By CBYakima

Sent: 7/3/12

 

From Here To Eternity, my friend on You Tube.

By God’s command I send you the most important message you will ever receive in this life. Take it seriously. Choose the way of God this very day and receive Godly life now and forever.

It’s the heart condition that exists which is our problem that stops us. We are natural born sinners. Sinners by nature who have no connection to God who is our maker. It is our inherited condition. Because of this God is strange to us. Jesus Christ on the bloody stick (often called a “cross”) is strange to us! This is our condition. We are born separated from God spiritually. Thus God cannot be the leader in our lives. God cannot shed grace upon grace on us. God loves all humans but cannot act in our lives until by His grace and through faith God gives, we believe God, and then, by faith!, receive all God has for each of us in this life, which is in Jesus Christ.

Sin has deceived us, because it is just as natural to us as looking at our face in a mirror. We do not see what our heart, and mind and soul cannot see is our lost condition. Only God can wake us up. Only God can bring life to us from the spiritually dead condition and separation from God we suffer in our lost state. If God would appear right now God would be a total stranger to us.

The proof of our fallen and dead spiritual condition is in our sins. God cannot accept sins and receive a sinner for GOD is perfect and Holy. ONLY JESUS CHRIST CAN STAND IN FOR US BEFORE ALMIGHTY GOD! We are God’s creation. God has given us a way to overcome this condition. Like symptoms of a disease, our sin is the evidence of our lost condition. And even after we are “born again” we will sin because our old nature remains. But when we truly BELIEVE GOD and His WORD, we will be given a new nature through the Spirit of God who will come and reside in us and we will slowly but surely change and understand God more and more.

That’s why God has said we MUST be born again by Spirit and through His word in the Bible which is the truth. He is our physician. Jesus Christ has told us of our condition. Left unattended we will die in our sins and be judged one day by Him.

This is the TRUTH OF GOD, not our thoughts about life but His TRUTHS. Now they seem foreign to us.

In order to overcome it we must be “Born Again”! Jesus Christ is our only sure hope. He paid the price for our sins. He is God the Son with full authority to pay that price in His perfect life and sinless being. Under false accusations and judgment, HE DIED FOR US AND SHED HIS BLOOD ON THE CROSS THAT IS THE PAYMENT for all our sins. And He rose from the dead to guarantee us eternal life in Him.

By receiving this free gift of God’s grace is the only way GOD can have direct communication with us. This is how we become God’s adopted children: through Jesus Christ who is our Savior. He has saved us from the penalty of our sins. He has delivered us from death which is spiritual separation from GOD that already exists, into a new relationship, as children of GOD, FOREVER!

Pick up a Bible and reread the passages I quoted in my message. Read the other verses that accompany those scriptures. It will help you understand more.

I know it’s strange to hear these things. That is natural to our STATE OF BEING. Our life and the society around us encourage our attitude of being “better”, and “Getting more out of life”, “success” “YES WE CAN!” , and taking “our place” as another sucker for all the lost ways, apart from Christ, of the different world orders and their beliefs and philosophies. But we were made BY GOD a long time ago. God gave His human family LIFE! God owns us and all that makes up the earth and Heavens and Galaxies.

God is not mocked by the lost of the world! Mankind is already under judgment for sin. It turned it’s collective back on God a long time ago. And civilizations have come and they have gone into the graveyard of NO returns. And all types of people that make up nations and states are under judgment excepting those who believe on Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior which is who He is. Let me repeat a short but most powerful verse all should learn:

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

God has a ironclad plan for His creation. GOD WILL HAVE HIS WAY. God calls His human creation! That is God’s way. He is calling you. God is telling you the truth. ONLY JESUS CHRIST SAVES. You must believe WHY AND HOW. If you are destined to be a child of GOD through the Son of God, you WILL understand! GOD will open your eyes and you will see and understand by the Spirit of God. Only the Spirit of God can inform you by the Word of God which is revealed to this world, in the Bible, through Jesus Christ who is God.

May God bless you to be His. I am here to help.

Chaim,

START THE NEW YEAR RIGHT


Here is an excellent New Year’s word posted by Carolyn Spring-Baker. The Carolyn also refers to a YouTube link attributed to Sanctus Real.

START THE NEW YEAR RIGHT

 

Posted by Carolyn Spring-Baker

December 31, 2011

In Christ Network

 

Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye”   ~Colossians 3:13~

 

To start the New Year right you must let go of any old grudges that are weighing you down. Philip Yancey describes forgiveness as an UNNATURAL ACT and says, “You don’t find dolphins forgiving sharks for eating their playmates. It’s a dog-eat-dog world…not a dog-forgive-dog world.”

Grudges come naturally when you’ve been hurt, whereas forgiving requires God’s enabling grace.

Jesus said, “If you do not forgive…your Father will not forgive your sin” (see Matthew 6:15).

Humanly speaking, there’s not one single reason God should forgive your sins, yet the offenses He pardons you for every day far outweigh anything you’ll ever be asked to forgive others for.

By forgiving, you change the whole dynamic. You open the door of a prison where you are both prisoner and jailer, setting yourself and the other person free. Grudges not only isolate you from people who were once friends, they actually shorten your life by producing deadly enzymes that contribute to a host of physical ailments.

One man told his counselor, “I wish my brother could come to my wedding, but we haven’t spoken in years.” The counselor asked, “How come?” Pausing, the man replied, “It sounds ridiculous now, but I don’t even remember.”

Drifting apart is the natural result of an unforgiving spirit; forgiveness reverses the trend by restoring and healing broken relationships.

It’s a medical fact that forgiveness adds years to your life. As a rule, when you talk to people who’ve passed the eighty-year mark you find they are at peace with themselves – because they’ve learned to forgive and let go.

Can you FORGIVE AND LET GO?

Thank You Father for the mercy & grace You show to us on a daily basis. Forgiving us for the simplest sins and even when we do what we think is unpardonable. Father I ask today that you will convict the hearts of all who are reading this, let them see what it is that is in need of forgiveness, and then Lord lead them to the act of forgiving everyone that they hold a grudge against. Father this I know You can do as You did this for me the other night, and I feel so much better now and want to see my brothers & sisters in Christ feel the weight of the world lifted off of them. In Jesus name we pray Amen.

Two Horses


Brown & White Horse

 

Here is an awesome Christian parable that should evoke all Christians to check their heart this Christmas season.

 

JRH 12/11/11 (Hat Tip; Vicki)

************************************

Two Horses

 

By Unknown Author

Sent Dec 6, 2011 at 4:05 PM

 

Just up the road from my home is a field, with two horses in it.

 

From a distance, each horse looks like any other horse. But if you stop your car, or are walking by, you will notice something quite amazing….

Looking into the eyes of one horse will disclose that he is blind.  His owner has chosen not to have him put down, but has made a good home for him.

 

This alone is amazing.

If you stand nearby and listen, you will hear the sound of a bell. Looking around for the source of the sound, you will see that it comes from the smaller horse in the field.
Attached to the horse’s halter is a small bell. It lets the blind friend know where the other horse is, so he can follow.

As you stand and watch these two friends, you’ll see that the horse with the bell is always checking on the blind horse, and that the blind horse will listen for the bell and then slowly walk to where the other horse is,
Trusting that he will not be led astray.

When the horse with the bell returns to the shelter of the barn each evening, it stops occasionally and looks back, making sure that the blind friend isn’t too far behind to hear the bell.

 

Like the owners of these two horses, God* does not throw us away just because we are not perfect or because we have problems or challenges.

He watches over us and even brings others into our lives to help us when we are in need.

Sometimes we are the blind horse; being guided by the little ringing bell of those whom God* places in our lives.

Other times we are the guide horse, helping others to find their way….

Good friends are like that…  You may not always see them, but you may trust that they are always there.

Please listen for my bell and I’ll listen for yours.

And remember…

Be kinder than necessary – – – Most everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Live simply,
Love generously,
Care deeply,
Speak kindly…….

FOR WE WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT!

Beloved Brethren, Friends The Lord Has Called;

We know that God always has His Elect Saints in every generation. This is His will and He executes it in the midst of rank apostasy as well as all world conditions in any time.

People speak of “Revival” coming! They are even believers! But I say to them:

Revival has never left any generation.

It is a personal miraculous event.

It is fashioned through the power of the Holy Spirit in each of God’s chosen.

It manifests in the service of a saint as well it should, in our maturation, knowing our Father’s will for us.

And the convicting power of the Spirit proves it in our refreshed and empowered walk as we shed our sins before His mercy seat above and the blood of Jesus keeps cleaning us so we can be empowered to REVIVE again and again, manifesting in WORKS OF FAITH for His Glory.

Revival is ongoing in each of us. This is what God sees. And anoints. And empowers each of us to GO OUT and exercise His Gifts in His love. There is no “Look over here” “revival is in this building” or “revival is in this group” “this nation”. NO!!

REVIVAL IS IN EACH OF US AND THE PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING! Each of us is blessed to partake of with God’s fullest power given us as much as we are chosen to serve according to His perfect will for us.

“YES LORD, I AM HERE TODAY! LEAD ME LORD, AND MAKE ME A LIVING SACRIFICE IN SERVICE IN LIFE FOR YOUR GLORY FORGIVE MY SINS AND FILL ME AGAIN AND AGAIN AS I OBEY YOUR TRUTHS”

Thank God for you, Beloveds. Your family is standing daily in the light of the Lord wherever you reside, and even if God deems it His will to remove you from where you are now, that Glorious Light of Jesus and His truths remains as a love gift FROM GOD who first moved you to where you were needed, and then elsewhere IF that is His will.

A TESTAMENT REMAINS THAT GOD WILL USE OVER AND OVER IN THAT HOUSE, AS IT IS HIS GOOD PLEASURE TO SEND HIS LOVE AND GRACE IN MANY WAYS, AS A REMEMBRANCE OF HIS ELECT WHO HE HAS SENT TO OFFER UP THEIR LIFE FOR THOSE HE SENT TO. IT CANNOT BE FORGOTTEN. GOD STAMPS IT ON THE LOST SOUL AND THIS GRACE WILL NEVER LEAVE, BUT HAVE IT’S DAY OF RECKONING, BY THE PERFECT WILL OF HIM WHO SENT HIS OWN.

There are no vain attempts God makes. His word will never return void of some impact He ordained, yet in TIME, His time, it will be according to His will. BUT THE SENT ELECT SHALL NOT HAVE SERVED IN HIS LOVE IN VAIN! NEVER!

REVIVAL HAS ENTERED THIS HOUSE! This coffee shop! This sidewalk or back ally…this part of the world we are positioned in.

And so too your labor of love has, by His predetermined will, gone out beyond the borders of your personal life, and I thank God we could have had this blessing together here AND in THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST REVIVAL!

For in each house, apt, Starbucks, etc someone is moved by God, in the few hours in a lifetime of a multitude of days, God willing, that they experience this unified and faithful collective event, they will NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN. GOD MAKES REVIVAL WHERE HE MAKES IT, AND IN THOSE HE CALLS AND CHOOSES… AND IT WORKS!

And everyone who loves the Lord can COME! And Use.

http://www.theabalonekid.com/id103.html Revival Event.

 

Receive the blessings of a faithful work. Make this video yours and share with saved and lost. Revival Event is ongoing around the world. JUMP IN!

The Gospel of Jesus Christ set forth in scriptures encourages all humans to believe on Jesus Christ for remission of sins and eternal life. A revival has the purpose of encouraging believers to be dedicated, confess sins, and live in Christ and to the lost to come to Him for forgiveness of their sins.

It is a great truth: REVIVAL BEGINS AT THE CHURCH ON OUR KNEES.

Hats off to YOU TUBE for it’s genius of providing a vehicle for freedom of expression, through these videos of biblical topics. Without this blessing through their creation this Revival would not be possible.

I gratefully acknowledge the faithful and anointed contributions of ministers, evangelists, teachers and recording artists. Without the Lord’s blessings upon them this revival would not be happening.

Father Abraham has Many Sons, Many Sons have Father Abraham


John R. Houk

© May 2, 2011

 

A friend on my AC2C social network found a couple of YouTube videos as a response to my post entitled, “Discourse on the Reality of God”.

 

In the YouTube videos is part 1 and 2 of a sermon by Frank Turek of a five part break down on YouTube. It is entitled, “I Don’t Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist Show”.

 

Part 1 and 2 Turek discusses Abraham and faith. Part 1 Abraham’s time life is told when God Almighty instructed Abraham to take the only son by his legitimate wife Sarah to be sacrificed to God. Thus Abraham embarks on a journey to Mt Moriah with Isaac and a couple of servants.

 

Just as a side-note Mohammed words recorded in the Quran plagiarizes this moment and has Ishmael on this journey of faith. You can tell it’s plagiarized by the fact that Isaac was a young teenager by this time and Ishmael had long been banished from Abraham’s tribal family along with Ishmael’s mother the Egyptian handmaid to Sarah which was Hagar.

 

In case you have not read your Bible in awhile, just as Abraham was to kill Isaac in sacrifice, God Almighty spoke up audibly telling Abraham to hold up. Abraham had proven his undying faith and because of this all the nations of the world would be blessed in Abraham through the son of promise Isaac’s descendants. Christians know those descendants as those that led to Jesus’ birth. By faith in Jesus’ death on the Cross and the Lord’s bodily Resurrection to life and re-glorification of His entire Godly attributes all who believe will have life in Christ in this walk on earth and in the future; the full redemption of spirit, soul (mind attributes) and body (which is clothed in glory rather than man-made clothing). The blessing of Redemption to those who Believe transcends the blessings promised only to the Hebrew Tribes of Israel thus by extension to all humanity who believe.

 

This transcending beyond the 12 Tribes of Israel is not a replacement. Rather the transcending of blessings is an engrafted adoption into the Tribe of Judah by the Blood of Jesus that mystically joins Believers to the Body of Christ. For clarity’s sake there is no Christian Gentile replacement but rather a joining of Christian Believers to Judah enabling all that Believe to be sons of Abraham and also inheritors of the blessings of Abraham.
