NOVEMBER 6 THE TRUE MEANING OF WORSHIP

Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all. Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.

—1 Chronicles 29:12-13

Actually, basic beliefs about the Person and the nature of God have changed so much that there are among us now men and women who find it easy to brag about the benefits they receive from God—without ever a thought or a desire to know the true meaning of worship!

I have immediate reactions to such an extreme misunderstanding of the true nature of a holy and sovereign God.

My first is that I believe the very last thing God desires is to have shallow-minded and worldly Christians bragging about Him.

My second is that it does not seem to be very well recognized that God’s highest desire is that every one of His believing children should so love and so adore Him that we are continuously in His presence, in Spirit and in truth.

That is to worship, indeed. WHT023-024

Lord, help me, in the midst of all the blessings You shower upon me, to keep my focus on the Giver and not on the gifts. Teach me to love and adore You in genuine worship. Amen. [1]

Man Doesn’t Care Who Wins, Just Happy He Won’t Have To See Political Ads For A While

ARLINGTON, VA—Local man Lenny Martin told pollsters Tuesday that he doesn’t care who wins any of the political races today, so long as he doesn’t have to see any more political ads or signs plastered all over his town for at least another year or so.

He also pledged his vote to the candidate with the fewest and least annoying commercials.

“I just looked through the list and chose the guys who weren’t interrupting my internet browsing and channel surfing every five minutes whining for votes,” he said in his exit poll. “I figure they must be pretty decent people if they weren’t talking about themselves all the time for the last six months.”

He takes a similar tack with his state’s propositions, voting for the ones that didn’t litter his neighborhood with signs non-stop for months on end. “Look, I assume that if you spend millions of dollars putting signs up to get me to vote for something, your proposition probably wasn’t all that good in the first place. Now, these proposals I’ve heard nothing about? The ones that never pestered me while I was watching football or listening to the morning traffic report? These I can get behind.”

At publishing time, Martin had settled into his couch only to see ads starting to run for the upcoming 2020 presidential race, causing him to cry out in anguish and cover himself in dust and ashes.

Paul Craig Roberts: What This Election Is Really About

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

I never cease to be amazed at the insouciance of Americans. Readers send me emails asking why I ever supported Trump when he was the Establishment’s candidate. If Trump was the Establishment’s candidate, why has the Establishment spent two years trying to destroy him?

The failure to put two and two together is extraordinary. Trump declared war on the Establishment throughout the presidential campaign and in his inaugural address.

As I wrote at the time, Trump vastly over-estimates the power of the president. He expected the Establishment, like his employees, to jump to his will, and he did not know Washington or who to appoint to support his goals. He has been totally defeated in his intention to normalize relations with Russia. Instead, we are faced with both Russia and China preparing for war.

In other words, the same outcome that Hillary would have achieved.

Trump has been so harassed by the Establishment that he is having trouble thinking straight. He was elected by “the deplorables” as the first non-Establishment candidate since when? You have to go back in history to find one. Perhaps Andrew Jackson. Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan were not the choice of the Democratic and Republican establishments, and the ruling establishments moved quickly to constrain both presidencies. The Democratic Establishment framed and removed both Carter’s budget director and chief of staff, depriving Carter of the kind of commitment he needed for his agenda. The Bush people that the Republican Establishment insisted be put in positions of power in the Reagan administration succeeded in blunting his reformist economic program and his determination to end the cold war. I fought both battles for Reagan, and I still have the bruises.

Trump is an outsider elected by “the deplorables” whose middle class jobs were offshored by America’s global corporations for the benefit only of the executives and large shareholders. A few people sold out the American middle class, which is shrinking away.

In the rest of the world, Trump’s true allies are the presidents of Venezuela, Bolivia, Nicaragua, the former president of Ecuador, and the former president of Honduras, who was overthrown by “America’s First Black President,” the consequences of which are the caravan moving toward the US border. The Establishment has succeeded in so confusing Trump that he has declared the Establishment’s war against the non-establishment leaders in Latin America.

So what is this midterm US election about?

It is about whether “the deplorables” have been brainwashed by the Establishment’s media whores and fail to support Trump in the House and Senate elections. If the Democrats, whose politics is Identity Politics, get the House and/or Senate, Trump will be completely impotent. The Establishment hopes to drive the lesson home to every future presidential candidate to never again appeal to the people over the vested interests of the Establishment.

In America democracy is a scam. The oligarchy rules, and the people, no matter how they suffer under the oligarch’s rule, must submit and accept. No more presidential candidates, please, who represent the people. This is the lesson that the Establishment hopes to teach the rabble in the midterm elections.

What should this election be about?

If America had an independent media, the election would be about the dangerous situation created by Washington that has caused two militarily powerful countries to prepare for war with the US. This is the most serious development of my lifetime. Everything President Reagan worked for has been overthrown for the material interests of the power and profit of the military/security complex.

If America had an independent media, the election would be about the American police state that, based on the 9/11 lie, the weapons of mass destruction lie, the use of chemical weapons lie, the Iranian nukes lie, the Russian invasion of Ukraine lie, was accepted by the insouciant Americans. Those responsible for these lies, which have caused massive war crimes, for which US administrations should be indicted, are feted and rich. The rest of us have experienced the loss of civil liberty and privacy. Any individual in the way of the police state is mowed down.

If America had an independent media, the election would be about the de-industrialization of the United States. Today, as this article makes clear – the offshoring of American manufacturing and industry has reduced the US military to dependence on Chinese suppliers.

And the Trump administration starts trouble with China!

If America had an independent media, the election would be about the 20 years of US and NATO/EU war crimes against Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, Pakistan, Syria, and Yemen, and US and NATO support for Israel’s war crimes against the remnants of the Palestinian people, and US and NATO/EU support for the neo-nazi regime established by the Obama regime in Ukraine to commit war crimes against the breakaway Russian provinces, the populations of which refuse to become victims of Washington’s overthrow of the democratic elected Ukrainian government and installation by “America’s first black president” of a neo-nazi regime.

If America had an independent media, the election would be about the orchastrated demonization of Iran. The completely stupid dope that Trump appointed Secretary of State just declared (the utter fool should not be permitted to open his mouth) that Washington was going to drive Iran into the ground unless the government agreed to behave like a normal state.

What does Pompeo mean by a “normal state.” He means a state that takes its marching orders from Washington. Iran has not invaded any country. The government in power is the continuation of the government that overthrew the Shah, a dictator imposed on Iran by Washington when Washington and London overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran.

What the despicable Pompeo is really saying is that Iran has to go, because Iran, like Syria, is in the way of Israel’s expansion into southern Lebanon, because Iran and Syria supply the Hezbollah militia, which has twice defeated Israeli invasions of southern Lebanon. The vaunted Israeli army is only good for murdering women and children in the disarmed Gaza ghetto.

If America had an independent media, someone would ask Pompeo precisely what Iran is doing that warrants Washington unilaterally, in the face of opposition of the European, Russian, and Chinese signatures to the Iran Nuclear Agreement, pulling out of the agreement and imposing sanctions that no other country on the planet, except Israel, supports?

But, of course, America has no independent media. It has a collection of whores known as NPR, Washington Post, New York Times, CNN, MSCBS, Fox News, etc.

Without an honest and independent media, there is no accountability of government. America has no honest and independent media. Therefore, in America there is no accountability of government.

“The deplorables” are faced with a dilemma. The president they elected has been overcome by the establishment and cannot represent them. Instead, Trump gives his supporters warmonger John Bolton as National Security Advisor and warmonger Pompeo as US Secretary of State. He might as well have appointed Adolf Hitler. In fact, Hitler was a more reasonable person.

So again, America is having an election in which nothing of any importance is discussed.

Unless the American people rise up in armed rebellion, they are finished as a free people, and, of course, they cannot rise up in armed rebellion. Not so much because the police and every agency of the government has been militarized as because Jewish cultural Marxism and the Democratic Party’s Identity Policics have the American people disorganized and at one another’s throats. Cultural Marxism and Identity Politics have divided the American population into victims and victimizers. The true victimizers and true victims are not part of the picture, which is a construction that serves ideological agendas. It is not the oligarchy that is the victimizer, but the Trump-voting white male. It is not the multi-billionaires, but the marginalized former manufacturing and industrial work force that is the source of oppression. This former work force is black and white, but the Democratic Party’s Identity Politics has blacks and whites at each other’s throats.

My conclusion is that America is doomed. The people, with few exceptions, are not smart enough to continue to exist. Perhaps the outcome of the elections today will change my mind. If the vote goes to the Establishment, all is lost.

Lawlessness – The Ideology of the Left and the God of this Fallen World — The Ignorant Fishermen Blog

One can sum up today’s Democratic party in one word, LAWLESSNESS! Lawlessness is the promotion and application of the rejection of sound moral absolutes; which were instilled into the creation by its ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator (Gen. 1:1-31, Rom. 1:18-32). The Democratic leadership of today has fully embraced lawlessness and the base things of this fallen world (Rom. 1:18-32, 2 Tim. 3:1-7, 2 Thes. 2:10-12, Jude 1:7). These godless reprobates – in their godless rebellion – have sought to rename lawless and evil tendencies with euphemistic feel-good titles, while slandering and branding all those who uphold morality as evil! Almighty God spoke through the prophet Isaiah 2700 years ago and stated, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Dear friends, when the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator says, WOE unto an individual, that individual best very soberly realize that they are indeed in ETERNAL danger of Almighty God’s ETERNAL JUDGMENT (Rev. 20:11-15)!

 
One can sum up today’s Democratic party in one word, LAWLESSNESS! Lawlessness is the promotion and application of the rejection of sound moral absolutes; which were instilled into the creation by its ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator.


Since 1992, all of the Frankfurt School’s wildest dreams have come to be!  Since 1992, all of Saul Alinsky’s tactics applied by the godless Left have produced its poisonous and destructive fruits upon America and its founding ideals; leaving this nation decimated and weakened, ready to implode! But, by the grace of Almighty God, Almighty God gave us a little space for national repentance and in His ETERNAL providential goodness spared us from the godless and lawless Hillary and America’s demise by allowing Donald Trump to be our nation’s president! Who would of ever conceive or comprehend what Donald Trump would do in just these last two years!?! Absolutely amazing in so many ways! Since the 2016 elections the Left has been on full parade for all to observe their godlessness, lawlessness, hate and destructive tendencies against President Trump, evangelicals, conservatism and simple moral absolutes. Since President Trump has undone much of President Obama’s lawless restraints, the economy and many moral goodnesses have abounded in just two years! Exposing and revealing just how evil and lawless the Lefts policies on America have been!

When you think of the American Left today, always equate lawlessness to their character; for indeed they are godless, lawless and demonic to the core.

 

When you think of the American Left today, always equate lawlessness to their character; for indeed they are godless, lawless and demonic to the core (Rom. 1:18-32, 2 Tim 3:1-7, Jude 1:10)! These have sold themselves, their souls and their followers to Saul Alinsky’s master and to the ways of their father (John 8:44, Eph. 2:1-2).

Today, the Democratic party and media have fully embraced lawlessness! Today the Democratic base and voter has fully embraced lawlessness and has reaped the horrific consequence thereof (Gal. 6:7). Wherever lawlessness and godlessness are found today you will ALWAYS find violence, licentiousness, broken families, poverty, disease, tyranny, ignorance, anarchy, psychological issues, drug addiction, abortion, murder, STD’s etc… for all such things are the fruit of a lawlessness existence (Gal. 6:7).

The majority of today’s Democrat voters and those of the Democratic base are liberal /progressives whose “reality and belief system” is rooted in the firm rejection of Almighty God and His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS, core moral absolutes and the practice of a sensual subjectivism, that view God ordained absolutes through the lawless prism of moral relativism and pluralism. These possess a fear of moral absolutes and believe that true freedom is to be free from any Divine instituted moral absolutes or laws that suppress their unbridled passions (Psalm 14:1-3, Isa 24:5, 2 Tim 3:1-7, Jude 1:10). They are lawless in their practice and hostile to any that impose a Divine reality or the adherence of moral absolutes (Rom. 1:28-32). Just as their father (i.e., the Devil), they follow his godless example to live a godless and lawless existence, always seeking the fruit of RIGHTEOUSNESS by lawless means (Isa. 5:20; 48:22; John 8:44; Gal 5:19-20).
.

They possess a fear of moral absolutes and believe that true freedom is to be free from any Divine instituted moral absolutes or laws that suppress their unbridled passions.

The Lord Jesus stated that, you shall know men by their fruits and by their actions (Matt. 7:16-20). It is simple enough to see that where ever the “virtues” of secular liberalism are promoted and exercised that poverty, disease, anarchy, crime, social chaos, the break down of the family unit, violence and horrific social devastation are to be found.

When one rejects and abandons the core moral building blocks for a health society for a godless delusion of lawlessness, expect to find social devastation and chaos (2 Tim. 3:1-7).

By applying these lawless solutions, these excel the rate of today’s social ills at EXPONENTIAL rates.

What is most alarming is how the very people that impose their delusional solutions and remedies upon the American people seek also to fix these ills of society by applying the very same logic that got us to this social catastrophic point in the first place. By applying these lawless solutions, these excel the rate of today’s social ills at  EXPONENTIAL rates. Today’s American social culture is at the extreme breaking point. The evidence is everywhere, yet the majority of American’s live in the apathetic delusion that all is well and that we will remain and prosper as times past. Wake up America, the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
