Evil now called good is the USA. “What sorrow for those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, for those who are wise in their own eyes and think themselves so clever.”(Isaiah 5:20)

Members of Al-Qassam brigades, the armed wing of the Hamas movement, take part in a news conference in Gaza City
US news outlets and the administration work to turn public opinion against Israel in its fight against the terrorist organization of Hamas who uses children as human shields and raise children to be suicide bombers. Once identified during the Bush administration as an evil terrorist organization, now quoted by some major politicians as Hamas being a humanitarian organization who have no room to store their defense weapons so they must use schools and hospitals. 
A prophecy: The word of the LORD concerning Israel. The LORD, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the human spirit within a person, declares: "I am going to make Jerusalem (Israel) a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves. (Zechariah 12:1-3)

(7/24/14) Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple. And if you only do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you, this is what sinners do. Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Heavenly Father is merciful.

Even though we who are “born again” know better, there is always the temptation to withhold the love of Holy Spirit inside us and retaliate in our dead nature “the flesh”. All because we have been hurt so little when by comparison Christ suffered terribly for us all while we were yet unsaved sinners. We are to be faithful followers and ambassadors of Christ. Whatever injuries we suffer as a result of our duty to share Christ in love, God is faithful to heal every hurt and reward us generously here and in heaven. Otherwise we miss out completely and our reward is only the bruising of our own egos here on this dieing world which awaits judgment.

Listen to the Lord who created you. The one who formed you says, “Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior (Jesus Christ). Isa 43:1-3

Even for those of us who walk with Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth, there are times we forget who we are and our new nature in Christ which is truth, peace, love, and joy.  While it is our obligation to be in the world to share the love of Christ and the good news of salvation to the lost, we sometime mistakenly look to the world, our old life, and the loved-lost for comfort and friendship. This is when God reminds us who we are in Christ Jesus (his beloved) and that we have been bought with the great price of God's Son sacrificed on the cross.  And although we are in this dieing world we are no longer of this dieing world, we have passed from death to eternal spiritual life. Without Christ Jesus there is no hope, only a fearful expectation of death and judgment.

Dear friends, if we deliberately continue sinning after we have received knowledge of the truth, there is no longer any sacrifice that will cover these sins.  There is only the terrible expectation of God’s judgment and the raging fire that will consume his enemies. (Heb 10:26-27)

Billy Graham. The greatest man of God, Preacher, Evangelist, and Statesmen of the 20th Century.

Billy Graham, used by God for the conversion of millions to Jesus Christ throughout the world for over 75 years.  He was close White-house adviser to 10 Christian U.S. Presidents from Harry Truman 1945 to George W. Bush 2008.  At age 95 Billy Graham gives his last message of warning and hope to our nation which is in serious trouble and in need of spiritual awakening to the message of the Cross of Jesus Christ before its too late. Please listen with an open heart and mind, your eternal future depends on it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bba2Dqaw6SI

In conjunction with this video message Billy Graham took out nationwide adds asking Americans in a simple statement to take action. This letter sparked a discriminatory investigation by the government.
"As I approach my 94th birthday, I realize this election could be my last,” I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel. I urge you to vote for those who protect the sanctity of life and support the biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman.” (Billy Graham)

You do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? You are like a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ. (James 4:14/1 Cor 15:57)

I have been spending time with my daughter who is temporarily living with me on her way to seek new things, so much reminding me of my youth. I thank God the opportunity to share with her these little times and experiences. I also thank Jesus Christ for providing me the Holy Spirit who dwells inside me, giving me the power to enjoy every precious moment in love, faith, and charity. And power over Satan who strives to drive the wedge of conflict and covetousness in all relationships. Without the Lord in my life I would lose everything, including my own soul.

I love the way you hold me lord. Please hold my children and bring them to the realization of your salvation, in Jesus name Amen..

For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. He who believes in Him, who clings to, trusts in, relies on Him, is not judged, never comes up for judgment; and for him there is no rejection, no condemnation—he incurs no damnation. But he who does not believe (cleave to, rely on, trust in Him) is judged already, he has already been convicted and has already received his sentence, because he has not believed in and trusted in the name of the only begotten Son of God. He is condemned for refusing to let his trust rest in Christ. (John 3:16/18)

Knowing the truth really does set one free, not a cliche. From the time I believed and the scriptures (God's word) came alive for me, and the Holy Spirit entered into me, I knew from that moment on that our physical life here on earth was not driven by our flesh and blood existence nor our desires for the inanimate. But rather by architectural design of the one true God of the universe who spoke this living world into existence (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).  The reason is for a place of testing, where man and women originally created free and without sin and in the image of God have fallen and failed the first test of obedience.  And although man becoming like God gaining the knowledge of good and evil, in disobedience forfeited access and friendship with his creator God.  Now every man and woman born are  predisposed toward evil, rebellion, and sin toward and against God.  And therefore forever separated from the one Holy God must be sentenced and destined for both physical (the 1st death) and spiritual (the 2nd eternal) death in Hell.  But the all loving and merciful God provided “The Way” of escape for those that are willing to “believe” (change direction and follow Christ).  God Himself willingly paid the penalty for the entire history of sin for every man and woman ever born regardless how bad.  God The Father allowed his only begotten son (God the Son) to leave heaven and be born physically as a man (Jesus Christ) to experience physical life just like us but without sin.  Jesus Christ paid the price and penalty of everyone's rebellion that the Father required. Not just rejection, crucifixion, and physical death, but much more Christ being holy became sin itself and had to suffer the total rejection of his own Father.  But because of this inexpressible act of love and sacrifice, not only was all sin atoned for but Jesus Christ himself was raised up more glorious by the Holy Spirit to sit at the right hand of the Father. This is the “GOOD NEWS” of the Gospel that the penalty for sin and death for everyone past, present, and future has been paid. A pardon is offered to anyone and everyone who is willing to participate in the demonstrated action of believing and being like Jesus Christ raise from the spiritual to spiritual life, born again of the Holy Spirit never to die again.  So for those that desire to be like Jesus and want the power to overcome not just life problems, but sin and death, there is still time while your alive but you must "believe and turn" to the lover of your soul (Jesus Christ) and be born again.

Cast your burdens upon the LORD, and he shall sustain you: he will never suffer the righteous to be moved or shaken. (Psalms55:22)

For those who are being saved, the following poem is a marvelous expression of truth so plainly evident in the born-again believer's renewed mind, and yet seemingly impossible to express in human words. Given to us by the Holy Spirit through Pastor Isaac Wimberley.

If there are words for Him then I don't have them.  You see my brain has not yet reached a point where it can form a thought where it can adequately describe the greatness of my God.
    And my lungs have not yet developed the ability to release a breath with enough agility to breathe out the greatness of His love.
    And my voice you see, my voice is so inhibited, restrained by human limits, that it's hard to even sing a praise up you see, if there are words for Him, then I don't have them.
    But my God, his grace is remarkable, his mercies are innumerable, strength impenetrable.  He is honorable, accountable, favorable, he's unsearchable yet knowable, indefinable yet approachable, Indescribable yet personable.  He's beyond comprehension, further than imagination, constant through generations, King of every nation.  But if there are words for Him then I don't have them.
    You see, my words are few, and to try and capture the One True God using my vocabulary would never do.  But I use words as an expression, an expression of worship to a Savior.  A Savior who is both worthy and deserving of my praise, so I use words..... 
    My heart extols the Lord, blesses his Name forever.  He has won my heart, captured my mind and has bound them both together.  He has defeated me in my rebellion, conquered me in my sin. He has welcomed me into His Presence, completely invited me in.  He has made Himself the object of my sight, filling me with mercies in the morning, drowning me with grace in the night.  But if there are words for Him then I don't have them.....
    But what I do have is Good News.  For my God knew that man made words would never do, for words are just tools that we use to point to the truth.  So He sent His Son Jesus Christ as "thee word", living proof he is the image of the Invisible God!  The first-born of all creation!  For by him all things were created, giving nothingness formation and by his word he sustains by the power of his name. For he is before all things and over all things he reigns, holy is his name, so praise him for his life.....
    "The Way" He persevered in strife, the humble Son of God becoming the perfect sacrifice, praise him for his death....That he willingly stood in our place, that he lovingly endured the grave, that he battled our enemy and on the third day rose in victory!
He is everything that was promised.  Praise him as the risen king, lift your voice and sing!  For one day he will return for us and we will finally be united with our savior for eternity!
    So it's not just words that I proclaim, for my words point to "thee word".  And "thee word" has a name, hope has a name, joy has a name, peace has a name, love has a name.
