NOVEMBER 2 REJOICE—OR GRUMBLE

Ye greatly rejoice, though…ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations.

1 Peter 1:6

I think all of us meet Christian men and women who always seem to look on the gloomy side and are never able to do anything with life’s problems but grumble about them! I meet them often and when I do, I wonder: “Can these people be reading and trusting the same Bible I have been reading?”

The Apostle Peter wrote to the tempted, suffering and persecuted believers in his day and noted with thanksgiving that they could rejoice because they counted God’s promises and provisions greater than their trials!

We do live in a sinful and imperfect world, and as believers in Christ we acknowledge that perfection is a relative thing now—and God has not really completed a thing with us, as yet!

Peter testified that the persecuted and suffering Christians of his day were looking, in faith, to a future state of things immeasurably better than that which they knew, and that state of things would be perfect and complete!

Lord, I pray that today, regardless of the difficulties I may face, I will be in a perpetual state of rejoicing because of Your promise of a hope and a future (see Jeremiah 29:11).[1]

NOVEMBER 2 IN HIS HOLY TEMPLE

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

—1 Corinthians 10:31

On Monday, as we go about our different duties and tasks, are we aware of the Presence of God? The Lord desires still to be in His holy temple, wherever we are. He wants the continuing love and delight and worship of His children, wherever we work.

Is it not a beautiful thing for a businessman to enter his office on Monday morning with an inner call to worship: “The Lord is in my office—let all the world be silent before Him”?

If you cannot worship the Lord in the midst of your responsibilities on Monday, it is not very likely that you were worshiping on Sunday! …

I guess many people have an idea that they have God in a box. He is just in the church sanctuary, and when we leave and drive toward home, we have a rather faint, homesick feeling that we are leaving God in the big box.

You know that is not true, but what are you doing about it? WHT122

Lord, may I today—whatever day it happens to be—go about my tasks with an overlying sense of worship, that You would be glorified in everything I do, say or think today. Amen. [1]

Ben and Jerry’s To Donate Proceeds From New ‘Resist’ Flavour To Anti-Israel Hate Groups Linked To Louis Farrakhan — Now The End Begins

 

Ben & Jerry’s controversial decision to release a new anti-Trump flavor in collaboration with, among others, Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour, has prompted the company’s Israel franchise, which is owned independently, to distance itself from the ice cream giant.

Some of the the most anti-Israel people you will ever meet are self-loathing American Jews who despise the sovereign nation of Israel, and would love to see it driven into the sea and replaced by the mythical Palestinian people. Such is the case with childhood friends Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, founders of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, and inventors of the pro-Palestinian ice cream flavour they have entitled ‘Resist‘.

“Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.” Psalm 129:5 (KJV)

Ben and Jerry posed proudly with rabid anti-Israel hate monger Linda Sarsour as they pledged to turn the profits over to hate groups she supports and is associated with. Sarsour’s ‘associates’ include Jew haters like Tamika Mallory, who herself is an ardent supporter of Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan, you might recall, recently posted a speech still up on Twitter where he referred to all Jews as subhuman ‘termites‘.

So you see, just because you are biologically Jewish does not mean that you cannot be anti-semitic and anti-Israel, because obviously, Ben and Jerry are both.

Ben & Jerry’s Israel Distances Itself From Anti-Trump Ice Cream Flavor

FROM BREITBART NEWS: The limited edition flavor, entitled Pecan Resist, “supports groups creating a more just and equitable nation for us all, and who are fighting President Trump’s regressive agenda,” the American company said in a statement Tuesday.

Proceeds from the new flavor will go to four groups, including Women’s March, whose leaders are rabidly anti-Israel. Linda Sarsour, who was pictured in a tweet with the company’s eponymous founders, has in the past accused Israel of “apartheid” and shared a stage with Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh. Another Women’s March leader, Tamika Mallory, recently accused Israel of committing a “human rights crime” when the state was established by “killing, stealing” and “taking the lives of people who were there first.” Mallory is an ardent supporter of virulently antisemitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

Don’t know Linda Sarsour? Take a look!

Watch these two videos so you can see who Ben and Jerry’s is ‘proud to support’ with the profits of their new ‘Resist’ ice cream flavour. Watch as she calls for jihad against the American government, thanks Ben and Jerry!

On Wednesday, Ben & Jerry’s Israel arm distanced itself from the move

“Ben & Jerry’s Israel is an independent and Israeli company,” it wrote on Facebook, noting that all of its products and ingredients are manufactured and sourced locally.

“We have no connection to the decisions made by the global brand, and we don’t get involved in local or world politics.”

The company said that it would not be selling “Pecan Resist” and will “continue to work and act for the community and for Israeli society.” SOURCE

Benjamin Franklin “You Have A Republic, IF You Can Keep It” His Fears Are Being Realized Today

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

Today I asked my Facebook friends to answer a simple question.  I asked them what type of government we have in the United States.  Most of my friends are Christians and Conservatives; and those who answered were well informed and correct. 

When the Constitution was written, our Founding Fathers deemed that the best government (Under God) would be a Constitutional Republic. I stipulated “Under God” for a very good reason. God was an integral part of the writing of our Constitution – and apart from Him, the Republic would not stand.

Our Constitution was written for a moral people.  If you ask any liberal what form of government we have in the U.S. – invariably they will answer with “Democracy.”  And they are dead wrong.  That answer is what the Leftists want to replace our Republic with.

You see, America is a Nation of laws.  Some call it a Democratic…

Bill Clinton Turns Radioactive as Dem Candidates Stop Asking Him to Campaign For Them — The Gateway Pundit

Bill Clinton with intern Monica Lewinsky

How the mighty fall.

Bill Clinton has gone radioactive as Democrat candidates have stopped asking him to campaign for them.

The Democrats are keeping their distance from the Clintons as they scramble to redefine themselves in Trump’s America and adjust to the #MeToo era.

Clinton, the once popular “closer” on the campaign trail is seeing a big chill from fellow Democrats.

The former President’s abuse of power and extracurricular activities in the Oval Office have drawn sharp rebuke from Democrats in certain circles and the once Clinton-friendly media.

The New York Times hit Bill Clinton in a scathing headline Friday, “No One Wants to Campaign With Bill Clinton Anymore”

As Democrats search for their identity in the Trump era, one aspect has become strikingly clear: Mr. Clinton is not part of it. Just days before the midterm elections, Mr. Clinton finds himself in a kind of political purgatory, unable to overcome past personal and policy choices now considered anathema within the rising liberal wing of his party.

The former president, once such a popular political draw that he was nicknamed his party’s “explainer-in-chief,” has only appeared at a handful of private fund-raisers to benefit midterm candidates, according to people close to him.

The Women’s March even rejected Slick Willie:

“I’m not sure that with all the issues he has, he could really be that helpful to the candidates,” said Tamika D. Mallory, an organizer of the Women’s March, who’s now promoting female candidates across the country. “It would do the Democratic Party well to have Bill Clinton focus on his humanitarian efforts.”

Veteran Democrat strategist Rebecca Kirszner Katz blasted Bill Clinton:

“It was an abuse of power that shouldn’t have happened and if the Clintons can’t accept that fact 20 years later, it’s hard to see how they can be part of the future of the Democratic Party,”

Clinton’s wife and twice-failed presidential hopeful Hillary has also been branded the kiss of death by many after her toxic 2016 White House bid.

Hillary Clinton also bullied her husband Bill’s sex abuse victims and is still dogged by her private email scandal–both losing arguments for the left.

Of course the Clintons are working behind the scenes helping with fundraising, but it is very telling that Democrat candidates don’t want to be seen with them, especially Bill Clinton, in public.

November 2 Daily Help

“HEAL my soul, for I have sinned against thee.” For this also the godly praise the name of the Lord, saying, “He healeth all our diseases.” What a transcendent comfort it is that in the person of Jesus “dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily!” My soul, whatever thy disease may be, this great Physician can heal thee. If He be God, there can be no limit to his power. Come just as thou art, for he who is God can certainly restore thee of thy plague. None shall restrain the healing virtue which proceeds from Jesus our Lord. All his patients have been cured in the past, and shall be in the future, and thou shalt be one among them, my friend, if thou wilt but rest thyself in him.[1]

DHS: 270 convicted criminals, 20 nationalities in caravan

(Video screenshot)

Seeking to dispel “myths” about the caravans headed to the United States’ southern border, the Department of Homeland Security claimed Thursday they are comprised of people from at least 20 countries, and more than 270 are either known gang members or have criminal backgrounds.

In a release titled “Myth vs. Fact: Caravan,” DHS, without citing sources, said the charges against the violent criminals in the caravans include “aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, armed robbery, sexual assault on a child, and assault on a female,” the Washington Examiner reported.

Meanwhile, the first 100 troops have arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border. Another 7,000 military personnel will arrive through the weekend ahead of the caravan’s arrival. President Trump has said he could send as many as 15,000 troops.

At the White House on Thursday, Trump was asked if the military personnel might open fire on the caravan.

“I hope not. I hope not. It’s the military. I hope there won’t be that,” he said.

“But I will tell you this: Anybody throwing stones, rocks, like they did to Mexico and the Mexican military, Mexican police – where they badly hurt police and soldiers of Mexico – we will consider that a firearm.”

The initial caravan, now with an estimated 4,000 people about 900 miles from the U.S. border, will depart from Matias Romero, Mexico, early Friday. It could arrive sometime between Nov. 3 and 12, depending on whether or not the members walk or drive.

Two more caravans, with another 1,500 people, are behind it.

A DHS spokesman told the Washington Examiner the 270 criminals had previously been convicted, not just charged.

“We also continue to see individuals from over 20 countries in this flow from countries such as Somalia, India, Haiti, Afghanistan and Bangladesh,” DHS said. “There is a large segment of this population that we know nothing about and we must be prepared to defend our border and enforce our laws to protect the citizens of our country.”

The DHS report supports Trump’s claim last week that “unknown Middle Easterners” were in the caravan.

Mexican officials have confirmed that known criminals are among the migrants.

Mexican Interior Minister Navarrete Prida said Tuesday in a radio interview that he has videos from Guatemala “that show men dressed in identical clothing, sporting the same haircuts, handing out money to women to persuade them to move to the front of the caravan.”

“We know, for a fact, that some members of the caravan threatened [Mexican] Migration Institute personnel and we have images showing many of them preparing Molotov cocktails,” he said.

Trump: Asylum not about poverty

DHS has emphasized that there is a legal process for seeking asylum in the United States by applying at a port of entry.

Trump has warned that any migrants who try to enter the U.S. illegally between ports of entry will be automatically returned.

An asylum seeker must prove that he or she has a well-founded fear of persecution based on race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion.

Trump said asylum is “about safety” rather than “a program for those that are living in poverty.”

In a change of policy, he said, asylum seekers will remain in custody until their hearing date.

“We’re not releasing anymore – we’re going to no longer release, we’re going to catch, we’re not going to release. They’re going to stay with us until the deportation hearing or the asylum hearing takes place,” he said.
