why not?

Just believe in yourself. Surely you were created in the image of God.

Maybe you need to find comfort in the collective. (the ant gene)

Comfort IS NOT TRUTH

Their is not much clarity in the Bible, just a load of propaganda.

The clarity is in the heart.

All love resides in the heart.

Thank you

Ata,

Thank you for your thoughts,

and kind words.

You and I have distinctly different Beliefs,

and that is what makes the world go round.

Perhaps you might want to start your own thread to expound on your views.

Start it and I will read it.

**

Time is short,

I don't wish to rehash the Dots journey into the Gnostic/New Age/Kabballa/etc. etc. type stuff here.

I obviously do not believe these types of teachings, but have researched the origins of same.

I find no proof for the above, as coming from God.

To each his own.

Life is about personal responsibility,

make your own decisions.

You will ultimately answer to your maker,

as will I.

**

I spend a great deal of time learning and studying God's Word.

I have not spent much time in any brick and mortar Churches,

but hundreds of hours watching and listening online.

https://www.sermonindex.net/

This I think is an advantage,

inmho,

as I have zero denominational bias.

I hear,

I read,

I pray,

I ask the Holy Spirit,

and I confirm, in my own Bible a 1769 AV KJV.

I have been given all the proof I need,

and I am persuaded.

I pray for understanding,

and a personal relationship with Lord Jesus,

ABBA,

our Heavenly Father,

and the Holy Ghost.

God reveals Himself to whomever He chooses,

I write from personal experience,

a 'wretched sinner' saved by Grace.

Praise the Lord,

His loving Heart,

His Grace,

His tender Mercy,

all Glory to Him.

We have had this discussion regarding the veracity of the Holy Bible before.

I have posted evidence proving the Prophetic nature of the Scriptures.

My whole old "Socks thread" was my journey proving the Bible, teaching and learning as I read.

Watch this for Ten minutes, it is factual and convincing.

Thank you.

I believe God has kept his promise to preserve His Holy writ for all time, every jot and tittle.

"For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. "

Spend ten minutes watching this video it sums up my position succinctly.

Comment on the video is welcomed.

There are contained in the Bible hundreds of examples of

God speaking through his Prophets foretelling events,

hundreds of years before they transpire.

Who besides God Almighty can tell the future with detailed accuracy?

Ata, I have journeyed long and far,

in search of God.

I have found Him.

I found Him because He found me first.

Isaiah 42:5

"Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them."

Isaiah 42:9

May God touch you with Gentle Kindness,

may He Bless you and keep You,

Amen

Gnostic chiliastic evolution: Satan's alternative plan of salvation

By Linda Kimball

"...so far as human wisdom and resources are concerned, the salvation of sinners is as impossible as raising the dead. Every conceivable method of expiation and purification has been tried without success." Charles Hodge

In the hearts of all humans, bar none, is the possibility of evil, thus sin, said GK Chesterton, is as obvious as potatoes. This being the case it is completely irrational for the unrepentant to think they can purify themselves and others when it is their evil conscience and will turned toward wickedness – aspects of their souls – that need cleansing. And it is because man is evil and depraved, that the 20th century's purification movements – Marxist Communism and Nazi Socialism – purified the human gene pool by murdering in excess of 160,000,000 men, women and children of which in Russia, approximately half were Christians. According to Srdja Trifkovic, persecution and martyrdom of Christians under 20th century totalitarianism, and mainly of Russian Orthodox Christians under Communist Bolshevism,

"....is by far the greatest crime in all of recorded history....Attempts at "killing the soul" started only months after the Revolution of 1917." Persecution and martyrdom was, "several times greater than the Holocaust in terms of innocent lives brutally destroyed. It has killed more Christians in a few decades than all other causes put together in all ages, with Islam a distant second as the cause of their death and suffering. And yet it still remains a largely unknown, often minimized, or scandalously glossed over crime." (New Martyrs of the East and Coming Trials in the West, Srdja Trifkovic, OrthodoxyToday.com)

In his analysis of Marxist Communism, early conservative intellectual Frank Meyer describes it as the state form taken by a materialist pagan,

"...faith determined to rule the world" Communism is the "final synthesis of all heretical tendencies that have pervaded Western civilization for many centuries." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement, pp. 251-252)

Communism is a godless, philosophically pagan form of heretical Jewish elements and heretical Protestant liberalism's upside-down, anti-creation account grounded in a chiliastic-evolutionary, apocalyptic proclamation of a coming new order based in belief in the inevitability of evolutionary progress from molecule to sea-weed, reptile, ape, hominid, and finally god-man and in the perfectibility of this fallen world. (1)

Chiliasm in Greek means 'thousand years' and is primarily a godless version of the millennial belief expressed in some Christian denominations that there will be a paradise on earth where Christ will reign for a thousand years prior to the final judgment and future eternal state.

The contemporary chiliastic-evolutionary movement is Technocracy. The world is being actively transformed by an amoral power elite and their minions according to a very narrow economical/political/social philosophy called Technocracy, and it is impacting every segment of society in every corner of the world:

"Technocracy is being sponsored and orchestrated by a global elite led by David Rockefeller's and Zbigniew Brzezinski's Trilateral Commission...Originally started in the early 1930's, Technocracy is antithetical to every American institution that made us into the greatest nation on earth. It eschews property rights, obsoletes capitalism, hates politicians and traditional structures, and promises a lofty utopian dream made possible only if engineers, scientists, and technicians are allowed to run society. When Aldous Huxley penned Brave New World in 1932, he accurately foresaw this wrenching transformation of society and predicted that the end of it would be a scientific dictatorship unlike anything the world has ever seen." (Preface, Technocracy Rising, Patrick Wood)

Huxley concluded that Technocracy produces scientific dictatorship designed to scientifically engineer, manipulate, dominate and control the world's wealth and resources and micro-manage every human being in every detail of his life. Moreover, said Huxley, the scientific and evolutionary system itself would become a god that was worshipped and questioning any aspect of it, such as the validity of evolution as empirical science, or any decision or outcome would be tantamount to blasphemy.

Like its' 20th century counterparts, Technocracy is the evolutionary chiliastic expression of a coming Golden Age that is the culminating hubris of Promethean god-men who having 'murdered' the Christian God mean to purify and remake man and creation.

In "Science, Politics and Gnosticism," highly respected political philosopher Eric Voegelin (1901-85) identifies many modern Gnostic movements. They range from Comte's positivism, to progressivism, Hegelianism, Masonry, Marxist Communism, Nazi Socialism, Schleiermacher's doctrine of faith, Protestant liberalism, and Luciferian Theosophy.

In an upside-down exegesis typical of Gnosticism, Helena Blavatsky, the founder of Theosophy, leading Masonic thinker, and important formulator of chiliastic evolution wrote in her book, "The Secret Doctrine" volume II,

"...it is but natural...to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind..." (Theosophy University Press, 1888, p. 243, 513)

Chiliastic-evolutionary systems are modern forms of ancient and very "elitist" pre-Christian and Christian-era Gnosticism which assigns the Holy Triune God to hell and instead worships Lucifer. Furthermore, it teaches that salvation is attained through the 'elitist' knowledge of Gnostic teachers such as gurus, god-men, certain scientists and Oprah Winfrey, a contemporary spiritual guide possessed of the knowledge of the Gnostic cosmogony.

With Satan as the spiritual father of an army of unrepentant Gnostic pagans, it is no wonder that modern Gnostic systems have so far produced every dictatorial, genocidal utopian movement of the 20th century and underpin contemporary spiritually pagan, chiliastic New Age and Technocratic globalist's hopes and visions. In his article, "Leftism a Radical Faith," Bruce Riggs notes that much of the political history of the extended 20th century is that of massive extinctions of citizenries by their dictatorial governments:

"Take the engineered mass starvations, torture chambers, firing squads, and gulags of Lenin and Stalin; Nazi gas chambers; Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge killing fields; the genocides of Mao's "Great Leap Forward,"; and the tyrannical North Korean Sung dynasty, and one will find that over one hundred million people have been slaughtered." (2)

The authors of the Black Book of Communism point to the godless anti-creation Darwinian "biological and zoological" strain of thinking as the engine of evil that proved itself a most effective means of denying the humanity of millions of victims:

"This strain of thinking is why so many of the crimes of Communism were crimes against humanity, and how Marxist-Leninist ideology managed to justify these crimes to its followers." (The Black Book of Communism, Stephanie Courtois, p. 751)

The devilish Gnostic rebel Vladimir Lenin concurs. Anti-creation Darwinism put an end to the belief that human, animals, and vegetable kinds bear no relation to one another and,

"that they were created by God, and hence immutable." (Fatal Fruit, Tom DeRosa, p. 9)

Twentieth century Gnostic pagan god-states systematically dehumanized and murdered millions of people in order to create an imagined earthly Eden purified of evil, and this is clearly insane. Yet this evil religion whose spiritual father is Satan continues today as a God-hating, globally elitist, evolutionary progressive, politico-centric faith entirely disdainful of orthodox Christian and faithful Jewish beliefs and contemptuous of those who subscribe to them.

In short, devilish Gnostic chiliastic evolution is a Satanic spiritually pagan religion with the look of a religious inquisition that represents the 20th century heretical version of orthodox Christianity. Unless we grasp this crucial point the nature of this devilishly evil religion will elude us. (3)

Rise of Satan's Chiliastic Technocratic Utopia

In "False Dawn: The United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion," Lee Penn wans that the United Religions Initiative (URI) and the Gaia initiative represents the spiritually pagan religious facet of the coming Technocratic New World Order. The URI is a United Nations organization that to a significant extent is animated by Satanic Gnostic chiliastic evolution. In preparation for the coming new order, a 'new' pagan spiritually is under construction of which the Earth Charter is set to become its Holy Writ.

Crafted by a conclave of 'Wise Persons' headed by former Soviet dictator Mikhail Gorbachev, the Charter's benign sounding verbiage,

"and symbolic nature camouflages its dangerous purpose. The Charter is intended to become a universally adopted creed that will psychologically prepare the world's children to accept the necessity of world government to save the environment. It is also an outrageous attempt to indoctrinate your children in the UN's New Age paganism." (The New World Religion, William F. Jasper, New American, 2002)

The URI has attracted a diverse group of activists and powerful supporters such as the Dalai Lama, progressive churchmen from the People's Republic of China, pro-gay Episcopalians, radical Muslims, feminist goddesses and witches, rich capitalist foundations, the Club of Rome, the Temple of Understanding, and the Lucis Trust, formerly called Lucifer Publishing. (pp. 5, 7, 23-26)

Prominent supporters include occultist Robert Muller (former UN assistant secretary general and father of Common Core), Neale Donald Walsh, George Soros, Mikhail Gorbachev, Maurice Strong, Ted Turner, and Barbara Marx Hubbard. (ibid)

Penn notes that evolution is absolutely ventral to the ambitions of Technocratic global elites. Thus after more than eighty years of nearly unopposed evolutionary evangelization in schools, seminaries, pulpits, media, academia and elsewhere global elite god-men like Jeremy Rifkin are finally free to declare that evolution is a living "Mind" enlarging its domain as it evolves up and through the "chain of species." Moreover, now that the evolution god "Mind" reigns supreme, global elitists no longer feel like guests in someone else's home and therefore obliged to make their behavior conform with a set of pre-existing cosmic rules:

"It is our creation now. We make the rules (and) establish the parameters of reality. We create the world (and) no longer have to justify our behavior...We are responsible to nothing outside ourselves for we are the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever." (Algeny, Rifkin, 1983, p. 188)

Here we see that in the completely delusional, entirely depraved (Jer. 51: 17-18), and ultimately demonically orchestrated global elite dream-scape it is not the personal Triune God who has created and sustains the world. No, it is each Gnostic man-god who creates and sustains his own world and meaning in every moment out of his own divine consciousness. In other words, since according to the devil the substance of the Holy Creator God is distributed throughout all of the cosmos, including the mind of man, then by occult magic rituals such as transcendental meditation and brain-altering drugs, man can tap into the god-force within, thereby becoming a little god who controls the cosmos because he controls "Mind." The physical world then, is an illusion because reality is inside the divine mind of the god-man.

Given the likelihood that an ancient evil intelligence has crawled inside Rifkin and other Technocratic god-men the fact that New Age spirituality relies heavily on spirit revelations channeled through mediums such as Blavatsky, Bailey, Benjamin Crème, Robert Muller, Neale Donald Walsh and Barbara Marx Hubbard, to name but a few, should come as no surprise. Penn observes that all together they form a comprehensive anti-Gospel setting forth a Gnostic progressive vision of apocalyptic spiritualized totalitarianism that includes:

1. Praise for Lucifer as the light-bearer and giver of wisdom

2. Highly evolved humans are gods.

3. Advocacy for extreme population control

4. Concentrated hate directed at faithful Judaism, orthodox evangelical Protestantism, and Roman Catholicism5. Forecasting a pending, and for them, desirable selection of mankind in which the progressives enter the New Age millennium and reactionaries face extinction. For "New Age Apostles of 'progressive' Social Darwinism, these casualties are a necessary price to pay for human evolution." (Penn, p. 7)

Speaking through Barbara Marx Hubbard, her spirit guide 'Christ' prophesied in 1995 that the Rider of the Pale Horse will use the 'sword' as one of his means to "kill those who choose to remain self-centered." (ibid, Penn, p. 322)

The meaning of 'self-centered' is briefly defined in the Global Biodiversity Assessment; a document mandated by the U.N. sponsored Convention on Biological Diversity. This document explicitly refers to Christianity as a faith that, rather than making God and humans one with nature, has instead set God and humans "apart from nature," a process in which nature has "lost its sacred qualities." The document states:

"Conversion to Christianity has....meant an abandonment of an affinity with the natural world." (Al Gore, The United Nations and the Cult of Gaia, Cliff Kincaid, americasurvival.org, 1999)

In other words, because orthodox Christianity teaches that there is an unbridgeable gulf between the Triune God and His creation that is only breached by Jesus Christ then idolaters like Jeremy Rifkin do not and cannot share the substance of the Triune God as pantheism teaches. According to Christianity man is radically different from the Lord and atonement, purification and mediation is achieved only through Jesus Christ, Who rose from the dead. This means that neither Rifkin nor any other Technocratic global elitist is god but rather an evil idolater speeding along the broad, smooth highway to hell.

All modern Gnostic pagan movements share the same chiliastic goal: a coming "new pantheist order" and "new pagan god-man" completely purified of all evil and existing in oneness with the evolutionary god force. This means extermination of all faithful Christians and Jews and other dissenters who refuse to become one with the god of forces.

Purification also extends to Biblical moral standards, sexual ethics, traditional marriage and traditions derived therefrom since they have been by-passed by the ongoing process of evolution. These will be changed just as all distinctions between nonlife forms, life forms and gender will be blurred in the idea of evolution from molecule to ape to man and woman to transgender to androgynous god-man. In the same way, all distinctions between good and evil, nations and religions will be merged in the chiliastic vision of worldly purification.

In conclusion, Gnostic chiliastic evolution is the anti-gospel of Satan, thus the antithesis of the glorious Gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ. So powerful is the stranglehold of Satan's anti-gospel on millions of darkened Western minds that it has imaginatively inverted the order of creation and reversed the direction of Biblical theism, meaning that the millions of people whose minds are in bondage to Satan and his legions can no longer think right-side up. With creation ex nihilo virtually replaced by the evolution god it is now believed that men have not fallen from perfection but are instead gradually evolving upward from their ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual perfection.

For all Westerners who are perhaps uncomfortable with, offended by, or outright hostile toward the personal Holy Triune God and His plan of salvation Satan's anti-gospel provides them a chiliastic plan of purification and a substitute deity – evolution – the animated god force of the cosmos which men believe they can control and direct. Through scientifically controlled and directed evolution they imagine they are destined to realize unimaginable spiritual advances.

https://americanprophet.org/Politically-Correct-Lies-the-Big-Bang-Theory-Evolution-and-There-is-NO-God-columns_Holt_2270.htm

**

excerpt;

"Creation itself and the things that reside within said creation fairly scream; there is a God! I have even heard it said that intelligent design does not necessarily reflect that God is responsible for said design. Really now, who then is? No human could have designed Creation let alone the things in it – like humans. "

excerpt;

Creation VS the Big Bang Theory

“Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing, spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist.”
Stephen Hawking – The Grand Design

The universe created itself – really? How? That would imply the universe is self- aware and this writer does not buy that. Let’s think about that a moment. With all that man has made, has man truly created anything? No. Everything ever made by man has come from something. The materials to make anything and everything were here on this earth, someone just figured out how to use those materials. In other words, we are to believe that the universe was and is a sentient being of some sort able to create itself at some point? I think not. Nothing of a complex nature can be made without thought involved, therefore it stands to reason that the universe did not create itself, someone created it – God. The universe is so complex science does not even begin to understand it all, there is no chance it happened randomly or by itself.

Science itself denies the universe created itself, if the Big Bang Theory were true – there would be:

Monopoles – a particle that has a single magnetic pole instead of two opposite poles such as magnets have. These monopoles have never been found despite being diligently searched for.

Antimatter – in the Big Bang Theory, matter was created from energy – at the same time antimatter should have been created in equal amounts. Yet only trace amounts of antimatter have been found. (1)

**

excerpt;

"The human eye: extremely complex with all that it can do. The human eye can visualize different colors and shades of color, depth perception, and see objects up close and then refocus and see objects far away.

“To suppose that the eye, with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest possible degree.” - Charles Darwin

Evolution

Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution is rife with problems as even he admitted, and yet most still cling to this preposterous theory. In the above quote from Darwin, he admitted that there was no way the human eye could have been formed by natural selection! In order for the Theory of Evolution to be true, there must exist transitional forms, i.e., the in between forms that would have existed when one species transformed into another one, e.g., apes into humans. This fact alone disproves evolution, as these forms have never been found in the fossil record.

Then there are the supposed ape-men used as the defining proof that evolution is true, Piltdown man, Nebraska man, etc. All of them proven to be fake."

A Prayer for a Nation

A Prayer for a Nation Divided

by J. Matt Barber, July 11, 2016

Dear Heavenly Father, Creator of Heaven and Earth, today we grieve for a nation divided.

The wages of sin is death, and we are a culture of sin and death.

Lord, we mourn and pray for the families of innocent men in Dallas, slaughtered for the whiteness of their skin and the shield upon their chest alone.

Comfort them.

Console them.

Love them.

These brave heroes were slain as they served and protected the very souls who now dance upon their graves and mock their compatriots.

We also pray for these reveling enemies of life and order who exult in death and disorder.

“Pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with violence.

“From their callous hearts comes iniquity; their evil imaginations have no limits.

“They scoff, and speak with malice; with arrogance they threaten oppression” (Psalm 73:6-8).

Open their eyes, shut their mouths and soften their hearts, oh Lord.

We have become a Romans 1 nation.

And so we, Your Romans 8 people, repent on behalf of corrupt leaders and an entitled, quarrelsome public.

“Just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of [You], so [You] gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.

“They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity.

“They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice.

“They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy.

“Although they know [Your] righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them” (see Romans 1:28-32).

We likewise pray for the loved ones of those whose lives have been needlessly taken by a miniscule minority of peacekeepers who have betrayed a sacred duty.

They are not the rule.

They are the exception.

The exception proves not the rule.

Yes, black lives matter.

Yes, white lives matter.

Yes, all lives matter.

The time is once again at hand, King Jesus, for we the people, as did our forefathers before us, to declare our dependence upon You.

Please hear our prayer, oh Lord.

Today we are divided. Our leaders, the powers and principalities, have sown seeds of wickedness, violence, chaos and division as we the people reap the poisonous fruits of strife and discord.

Lord, today we reaffirm both our temporal independence – our national sovereignty – and our eternal dependence upon You and Your supreme sovereignty.

Father, rebuild this house upon your rock, who is Christ Jesus.

For America labors in vain.

As surely as Your benevolent fingers hold together the fabric of the universe and every cell in our temporal bodies, it is by Your grace and Your grace alone that a nation divided, a nation in rebellion, can endure.

We are indeed a nation in rebellion.

We are indeed a nation divided.

How, then, shall we endure without You?

We cannot.

For You are just.

And Your justice demands judgment.

Have we entered Your judgment, Abba Father?

If so, Your judgment is just.

We, too, have sown seeds of wickedness, rebellion and division, Lord Jesus.

And for this we repent.

Though the hour is late, we now fall to our face, humble ourselves, pray and seek Your face.

Lord, though our public policy may lag behind, we, nonetheless, turn from our wicked ways.

Hear us from heaven, oh Lord.

Forgive us our sins.

Please heal our land.

Setback our death throes, we beg of You.

We declare, once more, America’s dependence upon You, King Jesus.

For without You, we are lost.

Without You, all is lost.

Yet with You, all is gain.

A Dark Place

Black clouds swirl overhead, an icy gale scrapes jagged ridges as far as the eye can see.

Jostled waves of granite rage cross the landscape, shoving against the horizon.

An angry sky blasts frozen stone unseen, a howling indignant tempest screams from all around.

Roaring past gnarled roots and barren trunks, dry creek beds, eroded hills shrunk low.

Majestic towering cedars, babbling brooks, whispering grassy steppes, long gone pounded into the past, but a fleeting memory.

Soaring falcons, flowing flocks of water birds, delicate flocks of dancing songbirds, gone.

Herds of field beasts, clans of big cats, horses galloping playfully, a faded memory slid into the past.

Harsh terrain streaks forth unrestrained, uncaring, consuming all beauty, all wild life, all goodness with wicked efficiency and extreme indifference.

**

This forlorn wasteland is to be found where?

This is not a place, but a thing, the Heart of Man.

This was My stoney heart for the better part of my life, lost from our Heavenly Father.

This is the Heart of those lost, lost from God, those who know not the Heart of Lord Jesus.

**

We are born of the Flesh, and live our lives being subject to our imagination, our fleshly desires.

The desire of the fleshly eyes, we see, we want.

We spend our lives pursuing things, cars, houses, jobs, stuff we think will make us happy.

As we accumulate these things we find out sooner or later that the joy of ownership is fleeting at best, and pick a new bigger faster better version thinking this will give lasting joy.

A child has a loving innocent heart, a heart we must all grow back into in order to be received into Heaven.

As we grow up the eyes and ears hear and see the imaginations and desires of men, we too grow away from innocence into the hardened adult heart.

Mans heart once the garden of Eden, a blessed heart in union with God, sharing loving communion in the cool of the day, a Father and his beloved children loving laughing together strolling through Paradise.

The way it was meant to be, the way it will be again, Praise the Lord.

**

Adam's heart once deceived now fallen and lost, has transformed from the blessed Garden of God's love and communion, to the lost landscape of Pride and Self-reliance.

Spiritually empty disconnected from the loving heart of Jehovah, Lord Jesus, the Holy Ghost.

Ego and Pride has displaced the yearning of our Spirits to walk with God.

A place of lies and deception, a stiff cold hard impenetrable landscape, a broadway unto the Pit of Hell.

Narrow is the Path unto Salvation, and few are them that find it, broad is the way unto destruction, and many are they that travel it.

Without God our hearts are hard black stone, having a form of godliness, but never coming unto the understanding of God's purposes, His plan of Salvation open to all Tribes Tongues, Nations.

His will that none shall perish, that all come to Jesus, for Jesus is Redemption, He is Salvation, Reconciliation of God unto All.

All people are able to be saved from eternal destruction, All!

Jesus a pure sinless Man gave His life for You, no man took His life from Him.

Jesus in complete obedience to the Will of Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, freely gave His Life.

His precious blood the full price paid for Adam's fall to be forgiven. Our Heavenly Father is Pure and Just, in perfect righteousness required a legal basis to forgive our Sin.

The Law of Sin is Death.

If God forgave us without legal basis, satan could accuse God of wrong doing, forgiving unjustly the Sinners, Adam through You and Me Today.

God can do no wrong, He is Just and True, Holy and Hallowed.

Praises and Blessing be upon His Loving Heart.

Jesus the Pure and Innocent only begotten Son of God, became Sin for all mankind, all Sinners, Murderers, Thieves, Adulterers, Liars, all Sinners.

This is God's purpose to be able to forgive every man.

This is why there is no other name under Heaven that can save and forgive the most deeply lost Sinner.

Jesus, the only name, the Lord Jesus Christ the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Life eternal in the presence of God is a fully paid for gift, Jesus' precious Blood, the immense payment paid to redeem your wretched Soul.

We are saved through God's loving heart, God is Love.

 God loved us so much, He gave His only begotten Son as payment to buy our wretched ungrateful selfish sinful souls, that we be spared eternal torment in the lake of Fire.

And what do we have to do to receive this priceless gift?

Call on Jesus.

Ask Jesus to be Lord over our lives, confess that you have sinned, turn from your sin, repent, believe sincerely in the Life, Death, Resurrection in the Flesh three days later, Jesus ascension to the right hand of God's throne in Heaven.

**

If you are not sure about all this, and truly want to know if what the Bible tells us is true.

In honesty and humility call on Lord Jesus in a private location, ask Jesus to come to you and let you know if He is God.

Ask and be sincere, Lord Jesus will reveal Himself.

Those who call on the Lord shall be saved, those who trust in the Lord shall not be ashamed.

Jesus has known you all your life, He Loves you no matter what you have done. Nothing in your past cannot be forgiven, Paul the Apostle who wrote nearly two thirds of the new testament was a murderer forgiven through God's Grace and Mercy.

If you are Lost and feel no body cares, please realize God loves You.

He has always been with you, even in the deepest depths of your Sin and Despair.

He knows your Heart, your Pain, your Worry, let Him Help you carry the load, He is not angry with you.

He loves You.

You are one of His Children, come home to Him.

God's Grace and Mercy are yours for the asking!

May all who read this Post be Blessed and Highly Favoured of our Blessed Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

God Loves You, please realize you are on His Heart, call on Him Beloved.

Glory, Glory, Glory be unto Thee, Most High, only True and Living God.

Father Son Holy Ghost,

Amen.

A bulletin board for simple or profound, fluffy or considered, expressions of light and freshness.

Stories of an uplifting nature or poems, or humor, or silliness, anything really that brings a smile or a warmth to an otherwise troubled cold world. 

A gentle forum of blessings given and received.

Holy Scriptures, spiritual topics, welcome, if delivered in the spirit of respect and cordial discourse.

Manners please.

A happy place of inclusion, a place of ease to banter or inform with considerate and gentle demeanor.

I hope some will participate, and spread goodwill generously.

Norma McCorvey RIP

Norma McCorvey died Saturday in Katy, Texas, at the age of 69, following a period of failing health. McCorvey (shown) was more commonly known as “Jane Roe” in the historic 1973 Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade, the case that overturned all state laws banning abortion. However, she spent much of her life working to undo the damage of Roe v. Wade.

At 21 years of age and pregnant with her third child — the first two having been given up for adoption — McCorvey sought an abortion only to find it illegal in her home state of Texas. Through a series of circumstances she was introduced to attorneys Linda Coffee and Sarah Weddington who used a desperate and ill-informed young McCorvey to further an agenda to legalize abortion at the federal level. Although she agreed to be the plaintiff in the case, McCorvey, who had only a ninth grade education, admitted her lack of understanding of the situation. In an affidavit she gave to the District Court of New Jersey in 2000, she stated,

excerpt;

" They were looking for somebody, anybody, to use to further their own agenda. I was their most willing dupe,” she said. Her understanding of abortion was just as naïve, as she admits, “Abortion, to me, meant ‘going back’ to the condition of not being pregnant.”

excerpt;

"Although Roe v. Wade opened wide the doors for women in every part of the country to receive abortions legally, McCorvey herself never had an abortion. Her third child was also put up for adoption. For years she fought conflicting emotions concerning abortion, but continued to be involved in the abortion movement in various ways, including working at abortion clinics and making public appearances at events.

However, though McCorvey is notorious for her connection to the legalization of abortion, there is another part of her life that may not be as noted. Her views began to change through an array of horrific experiences within the abortion industry, as well as acquaintances within the pro-life movement, such as Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life. McCorvey began to see and understand the fullness of her actions. Renouncing her past and trying to rectify what she could of her erroneous influence, McCorvey began to spend her life speaking out against abortion and started her own ministry, Roe No More, in 1997. In the above mentioned affidavit, she asserts,"

excerpt;

"On her journey in the fight for life, McCorvey has seen many victories and defeats. Her optimism was evident according to priestsforlife.org as McCorvey’s good friend, Janet Morana, claimed, “Just prior to the March for Life this January, Norma told me to greet all the pro-life activists in her name and tell them to keep strong in the battle for life, which we are winning.”

One of McCorvey’s wishes, along with the protection of life, was to separate herself from America’s history and taint of abortion, to amend and heal what she could, as she lamented, “I long for the day that justice will be done and the burden from all of these deaths will be removed from my shoulders.” In reconciliation of her past and her present, she once declared,"

Forgiveness is available for all Men and Women who call on the name of Lord Jesus.

May God Bless.

Psalm 25

Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.

O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.

Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.

Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.

Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.

Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.

Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD.

Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.

The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.

All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.

For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.

What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.

His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.

The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.

Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.

The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses.

Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.

Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.

O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.

Psalm (25:1-20)kjv [bolding and emphasis mine]
