Living in the present, the now. We serve a Now God. Really God is Not On Time. We’ve Finally Caught Up With Him. Gotten on His Time, In His Kingdom. God Never Changes. We Do. God has given us The Bible, so we can learn how to live, how to live a prosperous life. He wishes above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers. 3 John 2

God’s altar was to be built of unhewn stones, that no trace of human skill or labour might be seen upon it. Human wisdom delights to trim and arrange the doctrines of the cross into a system more artificial and more congenial with the depraved tastes of fallen nature; instead, however, of improving the gospel carnal wisdom pollutes it, until it becomes another gospel, and not the truth of God at all. All alterations and amendments of the Lord’s own Word are defilements and pollutions. The proud heart of man is very anxious to have a hand in the justification of the soul before God; preparations for Christ are dreamed of, humblings and repentings are trusted in, good works are cried up, natural ability is much vaunted, and by all means the attempt is made to lift up human tools upon the divine altar. It were well if sinners would remember that so far from perfecting the Saviour’s work, their carnal confidences only pollute and dishonour it. The Lord alone must be exalted in the work of atonement, and not a single mark of man’s chisel or hammer will be endured. There is an inherent blasphemy in seeking to add to what Christ Jesus in His dying moments declared to be finished, or to improve that in which the Lord Jehovah finds perfect satisfaction. Trembling sinner, away with thy tools, and fall upon thy knees in humble supplication; and accept the Lord Jesus to be the altar of thine atonement, and rest in Him alone.
Many professors may take warning from this morning’s text as to the doctrines which they believe. There is among Christians far too much inclination to square and reconcile the truths of revelation; this is a form of irreverence and unbelief, let us strive against it, and receive truth as we find it; rejoicing that the doctrines of the Word are unhewn stones, and so are all the more fit to build an altar for the Lord.
It is in the Bible, Mark 3:14-17. This is what Jesus called His 12 disciples when He appointed them to continue to be with Him, and that He might send them out to preach [as apostles or special messengers], and to have authority and power to heal the sick and to drive out demons.
Even Michael Jackson knew you had to start with the Man in the Mirror. Michael Jackson, The Man in the Mirror I wonder if he Michael knew the verse in James 1:23: For if anyone only listens to the Word without obeying it and being a doer of it, he is like a man who looks carefully at his (own) natural face in a mirror; For he thoughtfully observes himself, and then goes off and promptly forgets what he was like.
It’s Christmas time. Just remembering my dad, all the wonderful things he did in this city called Los Angeles, Ca.
I didn’t think it weird to go to church in the morning and in the afternoon go back again to another church to hear a preacher and a concert, because that’s what we did with my dad.
I get upset when I see my nephew not raising his kids in some church, to the point that he almost became Muslim.
I get upset when I hear my first love speak about Jesus as if he’s some ideological theory, and not the Man, God and Spirit that He is.
I think a lot about what would my dad have done, because he was the closest person I know of in my life that knew Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit.
We always had a place to live, always had food on the table, clothes to wear, a car to ride in. He did a lot for this city, in this city, but never ran for a political office.
I was born and raised in this city, left it in 1990 to live in the Inland Empire, returned in 2004 when my dad went to be with Jesus. Every other city I lived in was not my home town. I was so close to LA, but yet so far away. When I came back, LA was different, the people were different, the kids I grew up with were either deceased or had moved out of LA, to other areas of Southern California or the East Coast cities of New York and Atlanta. We were going to succeed, make a name for ourselves in this world.
I’ve been alive in this world over 60 years. I’ve seen a lot of things, I’ve heard a lot of things. I heard from Obama’s lips on inauguration day “they won’t get jobs my first year in office, maybe by the end of my 4 year term,” but no one agreed with me until it happened.
I remember exactly what I was doing when news broke out that John Kennedy and Robert Kennedy were killed, but not when Martin Luther King was killed.
I saw on the news how Mrs. Hilary Clinton joked about what happened to John Kennedy and Robert Kennedy when referring to our incoming President Donald Trump. I know she and whoever she is the front man for have killed many people, and they aren’t finished, and won’t finish until someone finishes them.
This is my prayer this morning. Lord I know you are covering President Trump with Your Word. I know he is Your Choice for President of this great nation called the United States of America. We’ve gotten it wrong so many times, but not this time. This country needs a lion, a Cyrus to make it great again. IT IS NOT THE AMERICA I knew as a child. I can’t shake the image I saw just the other day of a young woman and her child getting ready for bed sleeping on the concrete sidewalk in downtown LA, at 5 o’clock in the evening. Too many good people are homeless, because jobs went to other countries, or they were outpriced from the market for homes or they got sick and got behind in their payments and lost their homes. TOO MANY GOOD PEOPLE, just here in Los Angeles, Ca.
Are all the people living in tents near downtown Los Angeles, recovering alcoholics and drug addicts? Are they all from other cities other than LA? Call it optimistic or whatever, but I know there are more good Americans than bad. Our country didn’t become good just by looking good., no country does. It’s because of its people.
So I’m asking anyone that hears, Wake Up and get involved in your city, your state and country government. Because if we don’t keep our representatives accountable nothing will change. If it’s only praying for those in authority, every Christian can do that. But we also HAVE to make our presence known. We have to let them know we’re praying for them, And let them know what we think. We have to go to their public meetings at least once a year, just to see what they talk about, what they consider important in our communities.
Do you think the same sex marriage bills would have gotten passed if Churches in California had stood up against it? Where are the God-fearing men in Los Angeles, in California. We still have a lot of people going to church on Sunday, and synagogues on Saturday. We claim to be communities that believe and serve The God of our ancestors. How could these demons come to rule our state, our country? They are not the voice of the majority, they are not the voice of the Christian or the Jew. We have been silent too long.
Awake and Be Heard Americans. This is Still the Land of the Free.
Ways in which to defeat the agenda are covered later in this book but the main one is simply to know what the agenda is and tell others how it directly affects them. This will stir people from their apathy and make them realize they are under attack. Their survival mechanism will kick in, they will become educated on
the issues and they will wake their fellow human. Remember – those who fought and died for freedom in the American Revolution only had 5% of the population on their side. To avoid having to die for freedom, we need to win the war of information.
****Guess this is me, feel free to hide my posts from your Facebook feed. No one needs to die unnecessarily, especially not knowing why you died.
This is censoring the Truth. Now this is from the EU. But it affects the U.S. alternative media. Listen people, how long do you continue to listen/watch only mainstream media. Don’t you see by now that they are liars, incite riots, encourage people to kill police officers. Ask yourself how much of your thinking is influenced by what you see on CNN, NY Times, …(mainstream media). Please people start thinking for yourself. Take the time to look around on the internet, NOW. Just one case—- take a look at the recount results, online.
Guess I’m an old man. God said your old men will dream dreams, your young will have visions. This one was a nightmare, not a dream. It showed how Clinton supporters really want to stop all the young people from having babies, from being able to procreate. And it showed they would physically do something to stop it, if you were a Trump supporter.
This woman is a killer and a coward. She won’t do it herself. But anyone that doesn’t agree with her will be killed and this is DICTATORSHIP. I don’t know about you, but I find it highly offensive for the Democratic Party to send me lists of candidates that I as a Democrat should vote for. I thought we lived in a free country, where we could vote our conscience, or do any of our representatives in Congress have a conscience anymore.
The media has not once shown the videos about Russian President Putin’s warnings to The USA. That we are on the brink of a WWIII, if we don’t stop acting like little kids, and we get our entire country Nuked. Mrs. Clinton doesn’t want you to see the truth. This should be a red flag to any Christian. She IS NOT an honest person. You say all of us lie about some things. But not All of us lie about things pertaining to national security, not All of us hold the office of President of the United States of America. I feel a basic character trait of a President of the USA should be honesty and integrity. When you have kids, you know they did something wrong when they blame someone else for something they did, or try to get you to focus on what someone else is doing to take the attention off of them. ALL Parents know this, so why can’t they see it in Hillary.
Honestly, I hope Mr Trump doesn’t address her as Secretary Clinton again, she doesn’t deserve that title, and there is someone else in that office. We saw robots in the movie RoboCop turning against their makers after those makers lost their titles. Mr. Trump, she lost that title in 2013, you can turn on her.
