SEPTEMBER 17 GUILTY SILENCEq

Peter and John answered…We cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.

Acts 4:19–20

In this unfriendly world, is our Christian deportment too fearful and cowardly? Is this generation guilty of the sin of silence?

The Bible has much to say in praise of prudence, but it has nothing but condemnation for the coward! It is also plainly taught in the New Testament that the soul that is too timid to own and confess Christ before men will be denied before the Father in heaven.

It is apparent that Christian men and women are not speaking out as they should when the Enemy stalks into the very sanctuary and pollutes the holy place! Fun and frolic, films and fiction, Hollywood ideals and religious entertainment, big-business techniques and cheap worldly philosophies now overrun the sanctuary. The grieved Holy Spirit broods over the chaos but no light breaks forth.

Could it be that too many of God’s true children—and especially the preachers—are sinning against God by guilty silence? Those who do speak up on the side of Truth will pay a price for their boldness but the results will be worth it!

Lord, I pray for Hollywood filmmakers, secular businessmen, and unscrupulous politicians. Impress upon each one their need for a Savior—and then help them to change the world through their godly influence.[1]

SEPTEMBER 17 NOT WHAT I WANT TO BE

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.

—Philippians 1:6

There comes a time when the true believer must take his stand on the oath and covenant of God and refuse to be shaken. He must lift high his happy affirmation, not in arrogance, but in faith and in deep humility. Perhaps his declaration of independence will go something like this:

I am not yet perfect, but I thank God and my Lord Jesus Christ that I am done with the past and I do now trust in my Savior for full deliverance from all sins. I cannot pray like Daniel, but I shall never cease to praise God that He inclines His ear to me. I am not as wise as Solomon, but I glory in this, that “I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day” (2 Timothy 1:12). I have not the gifts of Moses or Isaiah or John, but I’ll be everlastingly grateful that I have been given the moral perception to understand and appreciate such men as these. I am not what I want to be, but thanks be to God that I do want to be better than I am; and I am sure that “he which hath begun a good work in [me] will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:6).

Here I stand. I can do nothing else, so help me God. SIZ104-105

Lord, do the work that must be done in Your power, through Your Holy Spirit, to bring Your work to completion in my life. Amen. [1]

Senate Democrats on the Judiciary Committee are working overtime to delay Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

On Thursday, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) referred a mysterious letter about Kavanaugh to the FBI.
Feinstein had been holding on to the letter since earlier this year.

It turns out the woman who sent the letter to Democrat lawmakers – Christine Blasey – is a far-left activist.

Independent journalist Mike Cernovich says Christine Blasey is a far-left activist who spent all weekend deleting her social media accounts.

The only other witness to the alleged attack said it never happened and the allegations are “absolutely nuts.”

On Monday morning Judge Brett Kavanaugh responded to the allegations.

Kavanaugh refuted the 36-year-old claims and later said he was not even at the party in question.

Moments ago President Trump addressed the media. Trump called out Sen. Dianne Feinstein for not bringing up the alleged incident when she had her private audience with the Supreme Court nominee last month.

BREAKING NEWS.

The Democrats thought they could roll out a last minute “me too” accusation to delay Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

It didn’t work.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is voting anyway on Thursday despite unsubstantiated, decades old allegations of sexual abuse against Brett Kavanaugh by a far left activist.

Brace for well organized protests, says investigative reporter, Paul Sperry.

The Senate met for the first time Monday afternoon since Christine Blasey Ford, a California professor and far left activist publicly came forward with allegations of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh.

Christine Blasey Ford is a far-left activist who alleged Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her over 35 years ago while she was at a high school party in Maryland.

On Monday, Judge Kavanaugh told Senator Hatch (R-UT) that he was not even at the party in question!

“Highly problematic that accuser Christine M. Blasey-Ford cannot provide an exact date of alleged incident — no day or month, not even sure of the season. Fact she didn’t tell anybody contemporaneously also a problem in terms of corroborating her story,” says investigative reporter, Paul Sperry.

We are at war–the Democrats will do anything and everything to prevent the Supreme Court from cementing a conservative majority.

Kellyanne Conway Discusses Accusations Against SCOTUS Nominee Brett Kavanaugh…. — The Last Refuge

Supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh presented the following statement today following a high school sexual assault accusation from Christine Blasey Ford:

“This is a completely false allegation. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes—to her or to anyone. Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday.”

“I am willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way the Committee deems appropriate to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity.”

Counselor to the President, Kellyanne Conway, discussed the issues this morning on Fox and Friends:

HUGE! Kavanaugh Tells Senator Hatch He Was Not Even at the Party in Question — The Gateway Pundit

The Senate met for the first time Monday afternoon since Christine Blasey Ford, a California professor and far left activist publicly came forward with allegations of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh.

All the facts aren’t even in but Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is calling for a delay in the Kavanaugh confirmation process.

Now this…

Kavanaugh told Senator Hatch that he was not even at the party in question!

Senator Hatch blasted the Democrats on Monday for the way they handled the accusations thus far, reported Chad Pergram.

Senator Hatch said it seems in bad faith to withhold info from Republicans and from the FBI for over a month.

Furthermore, the only other witness to the alleged attack said it never happened and the allegations are “absolutely nuts.”

The Senate is meeting for the first time Monday afternoon since Christine Blasey Ford, a California professor and far left activist publicly came forward with allegations of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called for a delay in the Kavanaugh confirmation process.

REWIND…

On Thursday, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) referred a mysterious letter about Kavanaugh to the FBI after holding onto it for months.

The author of the letter, Christine Blasey Ford is a far-left activist who alleged Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her over 35 years ago while she was in high school in Maryland.

The only other witness to the alleged attack said it never happened and the allegations are “absolutely nuts.”

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) went off on Feinstein Monday because she wouldn’t even join him, in a phone call with the accuser–an obvious attempt to delay Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

The Dems are so dirty they had to go back over three decades to Kavanaugh’s high school days to dig up ‘dirt’ using a left-wing activist.

The Republicans better move forward with voting this week otherwise they will only embolden the left to roll out left-wing activists with shady “me too” stories to derail conservatives in the future.

This is a developing story…

September 17 Daily Help

We would see Jesus.—John 12:21.

IS this thy condition, my reader, at this moment? Hast thou but one desire, and is that after Christ? Then thou art not far from the kingdom of heaven. Hast thou but one wish in thy heart, and that one wish that thou mayest be washed from all thy sins in Jesus’ blood? Canst thou really say, “I would give all I have to be a Christian; I would give up everything I have and hope for, if I might but feel that I have an interest in Christ?” Then, despite all thy fears, be of good cheer, the Lord loveth thee, and thou shalt come out into daylight soon, and rejoice in the liberty wherewith Christ makes men free.[1]
