September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. 1 Jn 2:27

Preachers and evangelists have their place. Fellowship has its place as well. Both are important. But I find direct inspiration, through prayer, to be the most reliable for personal growth.

I've also had to walk away from a church full of people that I loved when doctrine contradicted everything that He had shown me over several years.

The breaking point was when the leadership outright told me, "We don't believe that part of the Bible." I'd been with them for years before this came up.

I chose truth over personal comfort.

"We ought to obey God rather than men" is often easier said than done. But Christ has always been faithful to fulfill my needs one way or another since then. My lifeline is with Him first and most, and not with a flawed brick and mortar church. The church has saved nobody.

Hawaii Governor Signs Bill Banning Help for Homosexual Youth, Claims 'Sexual Orientation Is Not an Illness'

 The Democratic governor of Hawaii has signed a bill banning professional counselors from helping struggling youth resist homosexual feelings.

“Sexual orientation is not an illness to be cured,” Gov. David Ige claimed during the signing at the state capitol building on Friday.

Tell that to the young boys that were forcefully raped by older perverted men - often authority figures. The old pervs know exactly what “turning” is. They know that deep shame will keep the boys quiet. And they know that the boys will become future abusers.

When you say "women occupying positions of authority within a church organization" are you talking about the Roman Catholic Church, Tennis Shoe?

Can't say whether it's within the RCC since I haven't really dealt with them that deeply.

I've seen it among chaplains and some protestant circles. This definitely comes from toxic feminist ideology infiltrating the churches. Such ideology has been directly responsible for the destruction of families world-wide.

And yes, the picture of the family is not something that just pops up overnight. But it is a admirable goal.

There's something I completely neglected to mention. God gets ALL the credit for the Norman Rockwell scenario. I had received a personal prophecy years before it happened. Not to say it didn't require effort on my part. But, ultimately, He is the one that kept His word to me. And, so far, it has been the most fulfilling, meaningful, and happiest time in my life. The circumstances of those years absolutely defied the statistics occurring in society at the time.

In fact, I'd go so far to say that without God in the midst of a marriage, it is doomed. I've seen way too many divorces and shattered families that I had considered invincible during my lifetime.

Anyways, bless you brother. May Lord Jesus Christ watch over you and your family.

And to you as well.

Heh. I've seen little statues of that guy on people's dashboards. Crazy thing is, it isn't Him. A lot of churches still haven't figured this out.



As for the Norman Rockwell scenario, it's never been just handed to me. What that picture doesn't show is the amount of work and emotional investment it takes to get to that point. I had to learn what it meant to be a father and a husband. And I'm still learning as I go. The only perfect Father is He who is in heaven. Why? Because He knows more about me than I do. Humans are limited in that regard.

Which leads me to one of our limitations, our 5 senses. There are actually more than 5. An episode of vertigo due to an inner ear infection proves that beyond a doubt. But even with those extra senses, I am limited by time, space, and understanding. God exists outside of time and space. All knowledge, power,  love, and wisdom come from Him, the source of all life.

Religion, following some established moral code by my own efforts, has failed. It changes nothing about my inner being.

But knowing that Gods will is to adopt me as a family member, a royal heir, into His eternal kingdom is entirely different. For that, there is a deeper more profound change as I agree and see things more in line with the Creator and less with the world.

Sounds like you're in good hands already. God is calling your spirit out of the prison environment that we are all born into. It's encouraging to see. You're not alone. And you're not the first to walk this path in search of meaning. Ecclesiastes used to be my favorite book. It means “teacher”. And I strongly identified with the author and his journey.

The spiritual realm is quite real. Our ancestors used to know and acknowledge this. The evil entities within that realm are battling for ownership of human souls. However, because of what Jesus Christ did and is still doing, they have effectively already lost the battle. Christ has taken the control of humanity away from them and given it back to humans to decide which way they want to go now and forever.

It's important that you come to your own personal conclusions about just who Jesus Christ is. Religious gatekeepers abound to hinder your connection to Him and the Father. Christ IS the middleman. Not any humans. His ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts.

I'm not completely free from addictions and sin as long as I am within this fallen human body. But I can say that I am less sinful than, say, 10 years ago. What is love? What is grace? What is mercy? I rely on these things daily to be able to function in this life.

I thank God for you. And I thank God for your honesty.
8  General Category / Bible Study / Re: FATHERLESS on: September 17, 2017, 10:14:12 am
Romans 12:14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.

Psalm 68:5 A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.

Psalms 82:3  Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.

Psalms 146:9  The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.

Exodus 22:22  Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.

James 1:27 - Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, [and] to keep himself unspotted from the world.


Over 15 years ago, I was looking for a wife. I ran into a woman that had a small child. A single mother. The story was typical back then and in many places still is. She got pregnant from a guy that really wanted nothing to do with the child. The guy had visitation rights but never showed up. He had a weird obsession with finding this woman that did not want to be found.

The woman seemed enamored towards me. But the child was a problem. I wanted nothing to do with it. I didn't cause this problem. And I was not responsible for picking up the pieces of this train wreck. The woman knew this too. The child was a liability to any prospect of a husband.

I am ashamed to admit that I had a brief evil thought about this. That I could somehow manipulate this woman to ditch her child so that I could have all the attention to myself. But this was quickly followed by the notion that I had no right to do this. It was wrong.

And so, I recognized that if this was to be, it was to be a package deal. I remember driving home one day from visiting this woman and asking God that if this was his plan for me, to give me a heart for this child.

And He did.

Be a father to the fatherless

That's what I heard.

Around that time He told me that I didn't have to go any further. I could just walk away. Or, if I chose to take this on, he would honor it and back me up. I had never been married. And the responsibility of being an instant parent scared me. Yet, I saw it as an honorable proposal. The former evil thought was banished forever.

Two other statements that I recalled at that time came from personal prophecies that I had received several years prior.

“They that are forgiven much, love me much. They that are forgiven little, love God little.”

and

“God's not only going to give you a wife, he's going to give you a whole family. And it's going to be so wholesome and so real to give meaning to your life. God's going to do this because he loves you.”

That last statement I kept hidden in my heart. I told no one about it for years.

It took a few years after that for me to work through the internal housekeeping necessary to prepare for what was to come. Needless to say, there was a lot of prayer continuously in the spirit. But eventually, it happened. We were married. And God kept His word to me.

Although I felt a huge weight of responsibility and accountability on my shoulders the day we were married, I can honestly say that these past 10+ years have been the happiest and most satisfying times of my entire life.

Thank you for expanding on this here and in the bible study section. I guess I've just never seen Paul's writings as unique and separate. On the contrary, I see him dealing with the question, “Christ died. He was resurrected. He ascended. Now what? What has changed and what do we do now?” Christ essentially changed our entire reality as humans.

So, where the gospels leave off, and leave questions or even misunderstandings leading to error, I see continuation explaining who we are and who we can be in the kingdom of God.

The only other people that I've personally seen reject or badmouth the “pauline writings” are women occupying positions of authority within a church organization.

Are you saying that the HR people are correct? Was Paul wrong? Should his writings have not been included in the cannon?
11  General Category / False Religions / Has Anybody Dealt With Hebrew Roots People Before? on: September 10, 2017, 11:51:49 am
So, here's what I'm dealing with. I'm seeing people that somehow get drawn to ancestry.com and discover that hey have Jewish lineage. Suddenly, there's an appearance of minorahs, yamikas, other accouterments and dietary restrictions in their home. They tend to suddenly doubt the “pauline writings” and go on tirades against “hypergrace”. They get visibly upset when the word “legalistic” is used. There's also an obsession with the Hebrew language. They seem enamored with orthodox Judaism even though they'll admit that it excludes Christ. So theres a glomming on to the messianic community.

I can't help but think this is subtly dragging people out of Christ's house and into Mosaic law even though they will argue that it doesn't.

As for me, I depend on grace and mercy DAILY. I'm not Jewish AFAIK. And even if I was, it wouldn't matter as to my spiritual condition. However, I feel pressured toward their dietary restrictions in addition to shopping for my own family's health. Being gluten/dairy/aspertame/HFCS/GMO-free is already putting the clamp on what I can buy. Sometimes I just can't avoid it. That's all there is on the shelf.

My concern is that this movement will lead to a sort of spiritual elitism or pride that will dovetail perfectly with the appearance of the antichrist or son of perdition. Shout out to FervorForFaith on his antichrist series!

Has anybody dealt with this phenomena before? And, if so, how did you talk to these people? Maybe there's nothing that I can say that will change hearts and minds if they are convinced that they are on the right path to righteousness. Maybe it's time to part ways with these folks.

14  General Category / War On Family / Re: Homeschool Curriculums: Attack on your children?? What? on: September 30, 2016, 01:49:49 am
I've used Abeka and found it to be quite good, well rounded curriculum. I didn't detect anything “reprobate”. In fact, if children are going to be exposed to worldly literature, it's best seeing it from a Christian perspective. Science and Math were top notch as was the Writing/Composition.

As far as being a lazy parent “just sitting them in front of a DVD”, I can say that the average school day ran for 9 hours. AFTER my child did the work for the day, it was books on the table, administering and reviewing tests and quizzes for the day, homework check, and review of any fuzzy topics. Also preview assignments for the next day. Because of this, the school day would occasionally be dragged out to 12+ hours, which was grueling for both of us.

IIRC, research papers started early, like 6th grade or so, and continued every year thereafter. This was much more high speed than my public school education. Book reports were constant as well.

On the final year, we were doing school 6 days per week to finish the curriculum earlier.

The biggest gripe we had with Abeka was their blending of patriotism/nationalism with God. They actually have nothing to do with each other.

The hardest part of homeschooling was maintaining discipline, especially when children were young. We had to set up a structured routine to differentiate between school time and play time.

Beyond just silly. The Mandela effect is being intentionally promoted online. The effect of this promotion is to cast doubt on <fill in the blank>.

To cast doubt on the KJV is to specifically target Christian believers. And who on the earth would possibly be interested in doing that? Adamant antichristians. Of which there are many.

I also noticed that no other texts out of all the world's religions were mysteriously changed at all due to some alleged time distortion. The Vedas, Koran, Talmud, and Book of Morman are all just fine. Still intact.

I like the following observation. It fits a past motive to where Western societies are today.


Quote
KJV a Major Obstacle to the New World Order
Issue Date:July/August 2015

By David W. Daniels

A Google search for “New World Order” turns up thousands of references. People love to talk about the New World Order, (NWO). What do they mean?

In the simplest form, it is two things:
1. A world without God.
2. A world without reminders of God.

Prominent occultist Manly Palmer Hall was deeply into the New World Order. He wrote about the NWO —and showed what the King James Bible has to do with it.

Hall wrote about many religions. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a 33rd Degree Mason, loved Hall’s occultic, NWO teachings. Forty-seven years after Hall wrote about Masonry, he was given an honorary 33rd degree. The man had major connections and lots of money.

During World War II, over a year before the USA bombed Japan, Manly P. Hall considered how to make one world government:

“In the next ten years we will have to rebuild a world civilization. I hope for some psychologists and even philosophers to be among those appointed to administer this problem.... We will sit at a council table and figure how to iron out the troubles on the earth. ...no postwar program can be successful unless at least three and probably five generations of social conditioning goes with it.”

Hall foresaw five generations of conditioning, starting in first grade, needed to “create a world capable of mental and emotional tolerance.”

Now look what Hall claimed is “erroneous” thinking.

“To make things right we[/b] will have to undo much that is cherished error. The problem of revising the Bible shows how difficult it is to do this. For the last hundred years we have been trying to get out an edition of the Bible that is reasonably correct; but nobody wants it. What’s wanted is the good old King James version, every jot and tittle of it, because most people are convinced that God dictated the Bible to King James in English.” (Emphasis mine.)

Never mind that he lied about King James Bible-believers. Catch what he said?

Who is “we”? Hall is an occultist! Who was he involved with? And what did “they” do to the Bible, from the 1840s-1940s? The only “Bible” supposedly found in the 1840s was Codex Sinaiticus. Why is an occultist, who disbelieves the Bible, concerned with “fixing” it? If he got rid of the King James Bible, what would go in its place? “Psychology can be the basic science of human tolerance...

Psychology from grade one and teaching “tolerance” sounds like today!

Hall is right. For a new world order, you’d need people conditioned from childhood, like the Nazis conditioned German kids. (He actually wrote that, too.) And for “tolerance,” you need people who will “go with the flow.”

But Christians are like big, bright buoys in the water, who, Hall would say, were anchored to the “jot and tittle” of the King James Bible. So Hall hoped to “free” you from the solid anchor of the King James, so you’d “flow with” his New World Order.

In his Students Monthly Letter, Fourth Year, No. 12, Hall elaborated:

“Examine several editions of the Christian Bible…. the polyglots, and get a parallel Greek-English text.… We will discover numerous errors and alternative renderings.... Read the Vulgate, the Septuagint....  You will see the uselessness of picking phrases to pieces and trying to think in terms of ‘jots and tittles.’”

It doesn’t matter what they “free” you to. All that matters to them is what they get you from: The King James Bible, God’s holy and preserved words in English.

Either trust God’s holy words, or “free yourself” —to be a slave to the New World Order. For more information, see the short video “Why the NWO Hates the KJV".

Some words do not become archaic.

It technically fits the word's etymology within 40 years or so.

Quote
stuff (n.)

early 14c., "quilted material worn under chain mail," from Old French estoffe "quilted material, furniture, provisions" (Modern French étoffe), from estoffer "to equip or stock," which according to French sources is from Old High German stopfon "to plug, stuff," or from a related Frankish word (see stop (v.)), but OED has "strong objections" to this.

Sense extended to material for working with in various trades (c. 1400), then "matter of an unspecified kind" (1570s). Meaning "narcotic, dope, drug" is attested from 1929. To know (one's) stuff "have a grasp on a subject" is recorded from 1927.

Still just seems odd to me to use that word vice something more precise like “possessions” or “belongings”.

I'm still a little perplexed over this. Does this look right to you for something written in the 1600s?
I guess I've just not noticed this before.


Genesis 31:37
Whereas thou hast searched all my stuff, what hast thou found of all thy household stuff? set it here before my brethren and thy brethren, that they may judge betwixt us both.

Genesis 45:20
Also regard not your stuff; for the good of all the land of Egypt is your's.

Exodus 22:7
If a man shall deliver unto his neighbour money or stuff to keep, and it be stolen out of the man's house; if the thief be found, let him pay double.

Exodus 36:7
For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much.

Joshua 7:11
Israel hath sinned, and they have also transgressed my covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have put it even among their own stuff.

1 Samuel 10:22
Therefore they enquired of the Lord further, if the man should yet come thither. And the Lord answered, Behold he hath hid himself among the stuff.

1 Samuel 25:13
And David said unto his men, Gird ye on every man his sword. And they girded on every man his sword; and David also girded on his sword: and there went up after David about four hundred men; and two hundred abode by the stuff.

1 Samuel 30:24
For who will hearken unto you in this matter? but as his part is that goeth down to the battle, so shall his part be that tarrieth by the stuff: they shall part alike.

Nehemiah 13:8
And it grieved me sore: therefore I cast forth all the household stuff to Tobiah out of the chamber.

Ezekiel 12:3
Therefore, thou son of man, prepare thee stuff for removing, and remove by day in their sight; and thou shalt remove from thy place to another place in their sight: it may be they will consider, though they be a rebellious house.

Ezekiel 12:4
Then shalt thou bring forth thy stuff by day in their sight, as stuff for removing: and thou shalt go forth at even in their sight, as they that go forth into captivity.

Ezekiel 12:7
And I did so as I was commanded: I brought forth my stuff by day, as stuff for captivity, and in the even I digged through the wall with mine hand; I brought it forth in the twilight, and I bare it upon my shoulder in their sight.

Luke 17:31
In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.

Wanna know why people have trouble with things flying around the house? Things teleporting from one spot to another? Strange knocking sounds at night? Light going on and off for no reason? Things appearing by their bedside terrorizing them? Or even on the bed? “Alien” abductions?

Because they invited it. They wanted it there. Like  playing with the ouija. People are inviting and expecting spiritual entities to show up. What they don't know is that, once there, the entities don't go away by human command. We don't really have the authority to boss them around.

I believe it mentions in the Bible the big AC ruling by intrigue. Interesting word. Isn't that what gets people to buy ouija boards to begin with? Intrigue?

The door can only be shut by a higher authority than the demons. And that's not us right now.

I've found that it's OK to be angry with Him as long as I tell Him that.

I'm still His no matter what. And He can handle any temper tantrum I can throw at Him.

Do people disown their own children because of a tantrum?

By talking to Him, I've found that honesty tends to come front and center. It's quite liberating. That's when he can really work with me.

After the anger passes, I feel like there is new ground to explore with Him.

I don't despise spiritual gifts. And I agree that Christians must be empowered to deal with what is to come.

Just because something is supernatural doesn't mean it's automatically witchcraft, nor does it mean that it's automatically of God. There has always been the real and the counterfeit. I've read of both kinds of tongues.

Personally, I have used tongues when I really couldn't put things into words. I was alone, not impressing anybody except Him. And sometimes it would become singing to Him. Recognizing who He is. Gratitude for Him being there for me and everybody else.

As far as “looking foolish”, I really don't care how I look if I'm part of something that He is doing for His kingdom. It's actually better that way. Nobody can say that I did anything and all the credit gets deferred to God.

The globalism agenda, uniting the nations under one-world governance, international connectivity, and a united world commerce system are paving the way toward that happening. When combined with the human tradition of having authority arranged in a pyramidal structure, I see the prophecy as inevitable.

Fervorforfaith has some interesting observations in his “antichrist moment” series on YouTube.

His thread is here:

When I first read about how every eye would see the witnesses dead bodies for 3 days, I thought impossible, not going to happen. That was the 80's.

But now that webcams with live streaming have been set up everywhere in such a short time, that part of the table is set. AFAIK, this has never been possible before throughout human history. Unless one is talking about pre-flood conditions. But that is strictly speculative.

The two have little to do with each other.

Actually they do. It's obvious that the little boys are running around carefully setting the table so that the big guy can just slide into the chair at the head of the table when the time has come. They are all cooperating towards that goal as indicated by current world events.

What does this thread reveal about the anti christ?

That there's a lot of them at the moment. That their influence is becoming more accepted. And that Christians are expecting him to be revealed soon.

It's like being an alien if you're a Christian. 

I've felt that way for a long time. I'm here but not really a part of this. Thank God the Bible says this is normal.

Man and the wicked spiritual forces that currently dominate the earth have absolutely nothing to offer me that I would want. As the days pass, it becomes more uncomfortable for me to be here. It's like having to fight for crumbs off the floor while God offers the entire banquet.

So why am I still here? There remains a harvest of souls that will turn to Him in the future. And if I don't tell these people the truth about Christ, the world will simply lie to them about it. God really doesn't need me in order to accomplish this. But, just as any parent wants to include their child in what they are doing, He does the same with me. My reward is to have a deeper understanding of His character, thoughts, and emotions. I believe such intimacy and love is what everybody's pining for.

The other reason is for my brothers and sisters in Christ. Like me, they can be aggressively pummeled by world forces. If the enemy can't keep me in his camp, then he will do what he can to render me ineffective for my Father's Kingdom. If this is happening to me, then it is happening to them as well.

I don't know about you. But I sure could use encouragement and wisdom when surrounded by bilge and deceit.

I'm convinced that He places us precisely where we need to be at the precise time that we need to be there. Looking forward to your thoughts and fellowship here. Please enjoy your stay and don't be a stranger!

I've found inspiration and encouragement both on and off line. Although I prefer the face-to-face interaction. God has provided that for me. And it hasn't been under a controlled church roof. The best interaction I have had has been whilst sitting around a table eating a meal. Although I must say that I've had my fair share of dry periods that seemed isolated. But even that had a purpose.

I'm convinced that His people are scattered over the face of the earth all connected to Him and to each other spiritually through Him. May you find the strength that you need and the connections that He would have for you to accomplish His purposes in your life.

They're around. You might be surprised.

One lady that inspired me years ago was Tricia Tillin form Derbyshire. Her research and personal testimony addressed issues that nobody else was talking about at the time. Website was called Cross + Word and focused on influences occurring within churches. It really helped me to sort through all the confusion about what was happening in the world and was a huge motivator to turn toward God and the Bible for answers.
