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.”

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

(ie, the infrastructure is very bad here b/c for many years, they were grossly underspent on. 1st Tim 6:10, the god of materialism has its roots firmly in the West) And remember once upon a time ago when shacking up b/w straight couples drew shock awe?

Exodus 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Here is what i believe.

Jhn 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

He was a carpenter from the very beginning.   Wink

Thank you, Mark.

I was thinking about this today.

I can see the name morphing Jesus > Jaweh > Jehova > Jeshua.

And I can see Christ’s words. “Before Abraham was, I am.” And “I am the Alpha and the Omega”.

And I can see the beginning of the book of John.

I can see this intellectually. But to be honest, it’s not firmly embedded in my heart yet.

Was Christ always separate from the Father? These verses would say “yes” – that the entire world has never seen or known the Father. Is it important that I make this connection? And, if so, why?

One thing I do know. Christ is separate, yet working as one with the Father, seated at the right hand of the Father. And He has been given authority as Lord of Lords over all things. His character is one of deep compassion for each and every one of us as opposed to the devil, who doesn’t give a twit. Christ has given His people the keys to His kingdom and made a way to destroy the works of the devil in people’s lives on this earth. And he has made a way for people to have eternal life, forever together with the source of all love and life.

People want to know the Father? The Father draws them to His Son.

Couple of years ago, I had a close friend that had a direct, personal, spiritual encounter with God. At the same time, I believe there was some demonic interference that greatly confused the situation. Prior to that, he had been to church. He knew the story of Jesus in his head. Heard it a million times. I was moved to agonize in prayer for this man and his family. He was at a serious crisis point in his life – about to lose everything. The family was about to be destroyed. I sought help from several churches that had no idea what I was talking about.

One of the things that he realized during this encounter was, “Oh my God! You really did send your Son to die for me.” This was profound. It was the difference between “knowing” and really knowing with every fiber of his being. He also realized that this was the very thing that he had been searching for his entire life. All the worldly substitutions that he used to try to fill the void inside himself were nothing compared to this.

Since then, I’ve seen some miraculous changes in this man. God had begun and continues to do a deep work within his heart. Some things that he used to enjoy and thought were important are fading away. While other things that he never even thought of are becoming his primary interests.

When God touches someone directly, there is no wondering or doubt. He can do things that man-made churches will never be able to do.
