Is this just me, or is anyone else noticing the same thing?

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.”
September 20, 2017, 04:32:32 am Christian40 says: "The most popular Hepatitis B vaccine is nothing short of a witch’s brew including aluminum, formaldehyde, yeast, amino acids, and soy. 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."

I'll admit, I have a short memory from previous years, but...

Over the last week, it seems like almost everywhere I go, the stores have already put up their xmas displays, products, et al. No, it's not just a few things they're starting to sell in a certain part of their store, but it's as if when you walk in their store, you're like "Have we hit mid-Dec already?". Yeah, it was only early Nov last week(including before the election), and almost everywhere I've been, and even the tv stations as well, Walmart, Macy's, etc, you would think xmas is like a week or 2 from now. And to boot - tv channels like Hallmark and Lifetime have already starting rolling out their xmas movies. Lifetime doesn't do so until after T-Giving in years past. I'm also starting to see xmas tv/newspaper ads to boot.

I don't know...we're heading into a "fiscal cliff" economically, and now these stores, tv channels, etc are anxious to put out all of their xmas items?

Again, I have a short memory, and don't remember what they did in years past, but nonetheless I don't recall anyone putting out their xmas displays THIS early, nor television putting out their xmas movies/ads this early.

Its been getting earlier and earlier. The companies think that most people are still caught up in traditions of man and seek to take financial advantage of it. Maybe they’re right.

The second the halloween displays came down(the day after), the xmas baubles came out in my area. They also managed to minimize bargain or discount items. The generically-marked candy was just moved to another shelf. Same price.

Guess we’ll see if the now-traditional black Friday tramplings and stampedes go as planned. Ambulance companies will certainly find it profitable.

Was at the grocery store the last couple of days, and now they're starting the annual xmas music over the loudspeaker. Don't remember them doing this this early in the season. Over the last week whenever I would turn on the tv, there's at least 1 xmas movie on somewhere. And now they're really flooding the ads.

Xmas is the most seductive of them all - definitely best to cover your eyes and ears when you see/hear this stuff around you.

Radio station in my city has already switched to 24/7 Christmas/Holiday music which didn't begin before until Thanksgiving.

Seductive- yes- to lure many into a final state of indebtedness and no reserves...We are also seeing people with bumper stickers that say "socialism" - they aren't even hiding their agenda.

Oh- and now that Christians have bought into embracing the whole skull logo junk- now you may even see the PAGAN HOLIDAY for what it IS with them dangling from X-mas trees - like I just saw in a tattoo parlor window. To

Last several years they have been doing this pre-November holiday. It's not new.

It's the secular world, and really none of our business. They'll get their reward. But I question just how much we need to be reminded of it all.

What we need to focus on is what we SHOULD be doing (preach the Word), not what others shouldn't be doing. All these stories need to be shown from a scriptural perspective how they are not what we should be doing, not just post stories of their antics.

5 posts in this thread till I posted, and not a single bible verse! Come on people, don't let this junk get you sidetracked. I'm finding myself clicking the "Mark as read" more and more without even opening the threads.

"For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret." Ephesians 5:12 (KJB)

Pro_12:26  The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them.

Mar_13:22  For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

1Jn_2:26  These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.

Rev_2:20  Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.


Maybe the pre-Nov xmas stuff has been going on in other parts of the country, but personally in the areas in my lifetime I've lived in(New Orleans, North Texas, etc), this is pretty much the first time I've seen the displays/ads/programs go up almost in full force this early.

Pt being that you just don't want to expose yourself to the xmas deceptions as much as possible, b/c scripture warns us(as shown in these 4 verses) over those that SEDUCE you. No, not saying you've given yourself to strong delusion if you happen to be in a place listening to xmas music, but nonetheless you'd like to avoid those situations and places as much as possible, b/c the flesh is weak, and is vulnerable these deceptions.

Another good example is the false bible versions - when Obama got elected, Christians around me were concerned that their bibles were going to be taken away from them. But little have we all(including myself) forgotten that the NWO minions have been doing that for decades now...by throwing out all of these many different "flavors" into the market, which has seduced everyone through the lust of our eyes and flesh(ie-those "NIV teen study bibles" and those "cartoon kindergarten bibles"). Ultimately, it was as if they did so without firing a shot.

Anyhow, just find it a bit disturbing that they've gotten into the game rather early this year(at least from my end) - as much as the Holy Spirit has shown me the deceptions of xmas, nonetheless I won't lie to you and say that the temptations ARE right there, and it's not getting easier with alot of it being thrown in our faces this early in the game.

Matthew 26:41  Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

1Jn 2:15  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
1Jn 2:16  For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
1Jn 2:17  And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.


Proverbs 4:14  Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.
Pro 4:15  Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.
Pro 4:16  For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.
Pro 4:17  For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence
