I am not defending anyone; white or black. I just think it behooves us to refrain from repeating things that engender strife, or fills us with ungodly expectations, no matter who it comes from. Words take on a life of their own. So do pictures! We must minister grace to the hearer. I would not even repeat what is in the headlines because 'words take on life' and diminish hope. These young people who know nothing of spiritual warfare are destroying themselves and others with their lyrics. They are framing worlds of destruction. Even the cops are affected by the words framing their small world. Al Sharpton is a big part of the problem. He is a disgrace and needs to be recognized as such. I wish you hadn't brought up his name. Because he vexes my spirit. But I can pray for renewal. I believe that if everyone looks forward to national rioting, God will give our nation the desire of its heart. Far fetched? They go to God fasting and praying.
S C from OH And how would you label âwhite copsâ who kill those made in Godâs image with impunity? âgorilla familyâ I can only say to you what our Lord said to those who thought they were of Abrahamâs seed. âYou are of your father the devil.â I mean that. You are a little demon. You like most unregenerate degenerates leave wars for your children to clean up. No wonder there is so much ADHD and sicknesses like paranoia, schizophrenia, high blood pressure, heart disease, etc. because you are ignorant of your own father, the devilâs, devices. I hope I am wrong in interpreting your post. I really do. Because for a new creature to say things like this is not of God. It is something Hitler would say. And, George Bush wanted to nationalize the police force. It is all part of the New World Order. Mike, who cares about a personal text about the spreading âŚ Your words can kindle a fire. You are not discerning about this spiritual issue. SC from OHIO. You are the one who needs salvation from yourself. You have cursed the image of God and then think God will accept your praise. Don't think you're OK. OK?
Jim and Dorcas, perhaps we can see it this way. All things are for our sake. We cannot lose. Their heresy and attempts to keep people in the dark causes us to pray more fervently, study more earnestly as the noble Bereans in preparation to give answers that effectively change the way truth is presented to those captives. It is true, they cannot give what they have not received. A good thing is their acknowledgment of having delivered "boring" sermons. Hopefully, many will find saying the rosary boring as well as useless. This realization of something missing just might bring some to the true light. Perhaps they go to the stream of living waters (John 4). I certainly will pray for this to become a reality. May the joy of the Lord become theirs.
Pennned, regarding vaccinations, you will find the following references to Youtube videos helpful to mull over: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgiMqgjS-zM presented by Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz of Dr. Robert Gallo's findings. Also, at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amXSy7ZDhsI, another by Dr. Horowitz, AIDS was manufactured by the Government - Dr. Len Horowitz. I wish I could get to you DVDs of extensive studies on eugenics. It is not a new phenomena. However, it is more blatant because those who control media have cause so much division demographically, in every genre, etc. You name it! The powers that be want to conquer at the cost at losing their souls. This is why we, Christians, must make every attempt to go beyond cultural borders to be light to the alienated. They are blind and need sight. They hear and yet do not hear. I hope my grammar is understandable.
"[AUTHOR]Michael Hranek[/AUTHOR]If you want to read something bizzare listen to the RC St Augustine's allegory of the Good Samaritan. It is way beyond me how so many adore this Dr of the RCC as somekind of authoritative Bible expert. I imagine the lost and ignorant think it is so spiritual
A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho = Adam Jerusalem = the heavenly city of peace from which Adam fell Jericho = the moon, and thereby signifies Adamâs mortality Thieves = the devil and his angels Stripped him = namely of his immortality Beat him = by persuading him to sin And left him half-dead = as a man he lives, but he died spiritually, therefore he is half-dead The priest and the Levite = the priesthood and ministry of the Old Testament The Samaritan = is said to mean âGuardian,â and therefore means Christ himself Bound his wounds = means binding therestraint of sin Oil = comfort of Good hope Wine = exhortation to work with a fervent spirit Beast = the flesh of Christâs incarnation Inn = the church The morrow = after the Resurrection Two-pence = promise of this life and the life to come Innkeeper = Paul"
Mike, This is so bizarre until I need specific reference. E.g. page etc. I wonât believe this until I read it firsthand. Repulsive!
If I were a candidate and it was my time in history to be recognized and heard by millions, I would want the most divisive questions about homosexuality, abortions, greed and feminism that could be put forth. Then I could in context tell the world what God thinks about each of these issues. What a witness that would be to this lost and evil world. The media call these things gotcha questions, because they are harder to spin, but the real issue is why do they even try to spin them. The reason is of course part of my presupposition; no practicing Christian can be elected to high political office. If they tell the truth in a Godly manner, they will not be elected. The best they can hope for is to try and spin their way to success as some sort of an ungodly greater good concept.[/QUOTE]So Frank, why not throw your hat in the ring. You have as much to offer, and probably more, than they have offered. All you need is to ask the others S. C. R. A. P. See an earlier post for description of acronym.
LIARS! LIARS! LIARS! Every one of them. They will find themselves in Hell.
Oh my God, You alone are holy. Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake. Answer our prayers to you to vindicate Your holy and righteous name. Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God? Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thee. Forget not the voice of thine enemies: the tumult of those that rise up against thee increaseth continually.Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? They have profaned Thy name. Deal with them according to their doings. My soul waits upon Thee. Until our prayers are answered, we will take the Gospel to every creature.
Mike wrote: "Same-sex marriage debate forces GOP contenders to tread carefully" They aren't being forced into anything, but are letting themselves be intimidated by a few loud noisemakers, and their media defenders. Let one stand for truth, not be intimidated, and he WILL be elected. It is the usual liberal media lapdogs who put out this "Republicans be careful" nonsense. Note this is a Washington Post news item. Isn't that enough to know? Isn't it interesting how we listen as if it meant anything real?
By-the-way, Mike and other posters. Who owns the newspaper publishing companies and magazines. I knew only of William Randolph Hearst who flooded the market with magazines appealing to the senses; titillating our base nature and had many woman putting their husbands into debt with aesthetics, etc. Who's behind preparing us to accept future increases in violence and skyrocketing prices, etc. before it happens. First, they prepare us to accept what they are planning for their gain. It is the "history of the future." Everyone MUST read The Iron Curtain Over America, by J. Beaty and Report From Iron Mountain, by L. Lewin. You'll be glad you did.

"(vs praying) I want to explain how the acronym S. C. R. A. P. is applied to my selection of public servants; especially presidential candidates. I ask these questions: Whatever they are proposing, will it increase the Size, Cost, and Reach of Power? Are we dealing with ethics, or morality? I look at the constituency. This is my criteria. As joint heir with Jesus, I pray for Godâs kingdom and righteousness to prevail as our Lord told us to do; not synchronize my life with the wicked. Lord convince us to do things the way you prescribed. May Your will be done. Give us discernment between the profane and the holy. Make Your thoughts our own. Open our eyes to see that protests, and voting are not the answes. You are the answer. Help us to see that celebrating Christmas and voting men to rule makes the holy and the profane look alike. Show us how these things synchronize; not make distinctions between the world and Your people. . Lord, teach us to pray.
John UK wrote: There is here a Declaration of Independence from the Kingdom of God and the King set on the holy hill of Zion. My reading today took me into Luke 19, and I read the passage in KJV and then in TLB, where I found, what? The words "Declaration of Independence". v14 But some of his people hated him and sent him their declaration of independence, stating that they had rebelled and would not acknowledge him as their king.
"Yep. Also, Psalm 2 is clear about rejecting the exalted one. Their raging today is no different than in Genesis 19:9. They are breaking down the doors of morality. But the fire of God's wrath will consume them. Even now the fire of the Word of God is causing them to cry out for water. But they are going to the wrong wells. They are fueled by their corrupt conscience. There is a fear among many of them of judgment to come. But they need to run to the one who can forgive and cleanse them. This is sad and grievous. Perhaps it is time for us to set aside as much free time as possible to pray for those wanting to be free from peer pressure.
They have not rule over their spirit. They have been taken captive by the enemy.
Oh Lord our God, once again be merciful to those who have fallen prey to Satan's lies. Send laborers

"Strange that there has not been an outcry from the Jewish community. Are we to think they read the article in detail for its intention? Most people would have gone to the streets. So I think they, in the Jewish community, knew ahead of time not to protest. Just another ploy for us to think they, Zionists, are not the Mid East terrorists we think they are. They are not the peaceful people we are led to believe they are; in the Palestinian region. Don't forget to get your copy of The Iron Curtain Over America, by J. Beaty and Report From Iron Mountain, by L. Lewin. And, yes, we've all had enough from those who refuse to turn to God who grants peace through Jesus Christ.
[AUTHOR]Mike[/AUTHOR]"I think ye this: 1.The deciding factor in electing presidents is not, nor can be gay support, by the sheer lack of their numbers. Media publicity doesn't convert to votes. On the other hand, millions of Christian stay-at-home non-votes is a deciding factor.
"If Christians did not vote then how did we get Obama? Did no Christians vote? Or are you inferring that Mick Romney would have been the choice for America? A Mormon for president! I think that a Christian has more power praying for God to raise up a man after His heart, He will raise up a man after His heart. Where in the Word of God are Christians mandated to vote? Now prayer; that's a different thing. When I vote, it is based on who or what group is supporting the candidate, the group's affiliation, and S. C. R. A. P. Size, Cost, Reach & Power. I'll add morality vs or & ethics."
Great Sermon! Great encouragement.
I thank God for SermonAudio and the available spiritual resources.
It is absolutely beneficial to engage with others as we post. There is so much we can say to one another here that cannot be said even in our churches. I have often asked co members, in the church I attend, what happens after Sunday? There is no one to talk with about the many issues challenging our walk. Churchgoers are eager to leave and not fellowship over what the message was about.
When I was a child, my mother and her peer met every Friday night for prayer. It was called a missionary meeting, but they read the Bible and prayed afterward. We don't have that anymore and it leaves us lonely and alone at times.
The more we become individualist and isolate others, the greater the necessity of resources such as SermonAudio and the Chat Board where we meet others.
A thought! Women should be able to find their niche here. This can be their mini pulpit to minister to others.
God has given us a great gift.

"âThese narcissistic politicians will do anything to gain power and prestige. I suppose that Democrat candidates will vie for gay support also. It is sad when that becomes the deciding factor in electing a president to run this once great nation. Can you see where America is headed? Can you see where we are leading other nations? Can you see that the ultimate âman of sinâ will elect a Sodomite ruler - the Antichrist. Little antichrists will give all their support to Sodomite presidents/prime ministers/kings/princes, etc, then the Sodomite Antichrist."

" Hey, sc from Oh! I checked the posts and almost an entire page was "Franklin Graham ..." and this was for breakfast. The other person probably had FG for breakfast too.
The Lord loves us. Isn't that great? But FG needs to be toast.
John, Christians have reached out to this bunch with the Gospel. They have rejected it, or used "grace" and "love" of God to justify walking in darkness. The arms of our Lord Jesus Christ are still open and reaching out to all. They need to run to him, not Rubio. Rubio is does not love them if he cannot speak the truth, in love to them. "What they knew of God they did not glorify Him as God. What other groups is Rubio reaching out to? What is the next squeaky wheel he and other candidates will seek to oil with hatred in disguise? Did he reach out to them prior his candidacy?
I don't believe it is going to work out the way Pamela Geller intends anymore than a rap song about killing cops. Who going to take time to question the motive of Judge allows âKilling Jews is Worshipâ MTA ads? My prayer is that Jews find out its intent and not get angry like those folk in Ferguson. How would we feel if signs about killing Christians posted on the subway?
