The Colors of Autumn

Image
The changing colors of the leaves this time of year is breathtaking to watch.

What I find interesting is that these leaves are dying, yet they are so beautiful in the process.

Death is a natural event for all of us. Are you ready?

Since going to my high school reunion, I have learned of several friends who have died which is sad and I will miss them.

Wisdom says to prepare for death because it will come to each of us one day.

How does one prepare? By finding hope in God through His Son.

In Matthew 11 the Lord Jesus Christ says:

28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Abiding in Jesus

John 151 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. 3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. 4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. 9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. 10 If ye keep my comman…

Who is this King of Glory?

Psalm 24

1 The earth is the LORD's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

2 For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?

4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

9/11 Deception and Lies

9/24/07 UPDATE
Article: Seven CIA Veterans Challenge 9/11 Commission Report






Below: How can these news folks remain so calm as they watch the horror of 9/11? UNLESS... they were in on it.







Notice the eye witness in the video below never says 'plane'.



Below: 911 fake planes on CNN compared with some output from the state of the art tools available for faking the truth. FumeFX, Afterburn, Maya unlimited, XSI, Hudini are the tools used to create reality. Whoever believes that planes hit the worldtrade center should look at the wrong perspective trackings and the different explosions on the same event.



We've been tricked, we've been fooled, we've been deceived by those we've trusted.

John 8

42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your fat…

Jesus Christ is my Creator, the First and the Last and the Light of the World

1 Corinthians 1:18 says, "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God."







Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

Friends

Our high school reunion has rekindled MANY old friendships and the women in this photo were in my kindergarten class!

What a delight to reconnect and rekindle old friendships.

Friends are so important to each of us.

And for me, my VERY BEST FRIEND is the Lord Jesus Christ Who is ALWAYS there for me no matter what. His love for me is so great that He laid down his life for me. This is amazing love.

He says in John 15, "This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoev…

This weekend was my high school reunion and what a BLAST it was!

Below is a video clip from our lunch at Bob's Big Boy restaurant where we used to hang out after the games and where I was a carhop later on - what a hoot!!

Psalm 139

1 O lord, thou hast searched me, and known me.

2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.

3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.


4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.

5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.


7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;


10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.

12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the…

Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers (part 6 of 8)

OUTRAGEOUS! This 10 minute portion of the video "Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers" exposes among other things the wrongful acts of Haliburton in Iraq.

"Private contractors are getting rich while everybody else is suffering: This is the point director Robert Greenwald makes -- passionately -- in this 2006 documentary. Using whistleblower testimony, firsthand accounts, financial records and classified documents, Greenwald levels charges of greed, corruption and incompetence against private contractors and shows the subsequent devastating effect on Americans and Iraqis."


THOU SHALL NOT STEAL.

What Can Wash Away My Sin?

Image
Yesterday, while walking past a vineyard I was tempted to pick some grapes along someone's fence as I had done on previous times. However, this time I was feeling guilty, so I didn't take any.

This 'feeling' was the Holy Spirit telling me in His quiet way that it is wrong to steal. The previous times I ignored Him but this time I listened and obeyed.

But if we ignore God, it becomes easier to ignore Him the next time and here is the danger of ignoring the Holy Spirit: our heart will get hardened which can lead to loosing our salvation if we don't repent.

Years ago, I joined a group of pro-life folks who would talk to the girls about alternatives besides abortion. And because I had an abortion, I could speak from experience. One day while in front of an abortion clinic in Atlanta, a woman holding her Bible high walked by with a pregnant girl saying, "God will forgive us!"

My heart broke then and does now as I think about the things I've done in the past w…

Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army by Jeremy Scahill


These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.



Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.


Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the …

The Princess and Psalm 23

Psalm 23

1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

What is a Disinformation Agent?

A disinformation agent is someone who is being paid to mislead folks with lies and half-truths hiding the real story.

The technique of disinformation is important to intelligence agencies and after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the Pentagon set up the Defense Department's Office of Strategic Influence with a mission "to provide news items and false information directly to foreign journalists and others to bolster U.S. policy and the war on terrorism." This new office attracted much criticism and eventually was shut down in 2002 as defense officials publicly denounced the dangers of such a program.

In any case, now more than ever, disinformation abounds and one needs discernment to separate the lies from the truth.

This 2 min video below tells a bit more about disinfo agents. He also makes comments that lead you to believe he supports Ron Paul. As much as I would love to believe that someone like Ron Paul can 'do it', I am suspicious of Ron Paul. Anyone wh…

He Was Numbered with the Transgressors - Isaiah 53:12

Image
Why did Jesus tell his disciples to buy a sword?

I've heard Christians use this verse as proof that we should bear arms and fight back.

However, the scripture tells us that Jesus had his disciples buy and bring swords so that he would be 'numbered with the transgressors', thus fulfilling the prophecy of Isaiah 53.

In Luke 22, Jesus says, "...he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end."

In the garden, when Peter cut off the ear of one of the Roman guards, Jesus said, "Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?"Then Jesus healed the soldier…

One Tin Soldier

WAKE UP, CHRISTIAN AMERICAN and face the fact to what we as a nation have been doing and continue to do across the globe!

There is NO EXCUSE for the horror and TERROR we have inflicted upon innocent peoples everywhere in the name of freedom? For who? Surely not for them.

Many Americans have been brainwashed by the controlled mass media and sold a 'bill of goods' by our greedy, selfish, corrupt leaders to believe that war is good, killing is right, and torture is necessary.

The Lord Jesus Christ NEVER condoned violence. We don't read in the New Testament of the Christians hurting/killing their enemies. Nor do we read of the disciples rebelling against the government.

We do read to love our enemies. We do read to pray for our leaders. We do read to trust in the Lord with all our heart.

And in the Old Testament, the Sixth Commandment in Exodus 20 says, "Thou shalt not kill."
