February 27 A Call to Repentance

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 50:7–10

Key Verse: Isaiah 50:7

For the Lord God will help Me;

Therefore I will not be disgraced;

Therefore I have set My face like a flint,

And I know that I will not be ashamed.

Genuine repentance of sin includes: agreeing with the Lord that our behavior or thought pattern is ungodly; establishing in our thinking that this sinful habit is displeasing to God; identifying—with the Spirit’s help—what would please Him; and taking steps under the Spirit’s power to turn from sin and walk in godliness. Whether we are nonbelievers starting to come to faith in Jesus or believers wrestling with sin, we all need to practice biblical repentance.

Three key words describe the process of repentance: recognition, agreement, and commitment. Unless we recognize that our behavior or thoughts are sin, we will not see any need to confess them to God. Recognition comes as we study God’s Word and learn what He identifies as sin. We must then agree that God’s pattern for life is correct and ours is wrong.

The epistles to the Ephesians and Galatians are both helpful in revealing what pleases and displeases God. Without agreement, our confession would be more of an “I am sorry about the consequences” statement. Commitment is also necessary. Isaiah proclaims, “For the Lord God will help Me; therefore I will not be disgraced; therefore I have set My face like a flint, and I know that I will not be ashamed” (Isaiah 50:7). We must commit ourselves to turning away from sin and choosing God’s way.

We who belong to Jesus can change permanently. Remember: Christ promises that those He sets free will be free indeed (John 8:36).

Lord, thank You for the freedom that comes through repentance. I recognize my sin, agree with what Your Word says about it, and commit my life to You. Forgive me.[1]

Twitter Legal Warns Michelle Malkin Her ‘Mohammed Cartoon Tweet’ Violates “Pakistan’s Blasphemy Laws” – Which Are Punishable by Prison or Death — The Gateway Pundit

Twitter legal sent conservative firebrand Michelle Malkin a warning last week that her Mohammed cartoon tweet violated Pakistan’s “blasphemy laws.”

The specific blasphemy laws Michelle Malkin violated are punishable by life imprisonment or death and Twitter happily delivered the death threat to her.

“I’ve been #SiliconValleySharia -ed. Here’s the notice Twitter’s legal dept sent me last week, warning me to get legal counsel because anti-blasphemy Muslim zealots complained that my Mohammed Cartoons tweet violates Pakistan’s laws,” Malkin said in a tweet on Wednesday with a screenshot of the warning.

Below is the ‘offensive’ Mohammed cartoon tweet Michelle Malkin posted — she originally posted it January of 2015.

Michelle Malkin then stated that she responded to Twitter’s legal team seeking answers.

“I have written to Twitter’s legal & media relations departments seeking answers and comment on why American citizens who use their service are now subject to Pakistan’s oppressive anti-blasphemy laws. No response yet – hi @jack can you respond==> #SiliconValleySharia” Malkin said in a tweet.

In an email to Twitter, Michelle Malkin states she’s an “American citizen who rejects sharia law” and she “never agreed to any terms of service limiting tweets” on her “American law-abiding opinions of sharia and Islam” when she signed up for Twitter.

“I would like to know who or what government agency, private organization or individual complained about my tweet, when they did so, and what criteria you will use to decide whether to take any action on the reported content,” Michelle Malkin said in her email response to Twitter legal.

Pamela Geller received the same warning from Twitter after she criticized Sharia enforcer, Linda Sarsour.

This reporter received the same warning from Twitter legal over a tweet posted calling for burkas to be banned in the United States.

The Pakistani blasphemy laws Twitter is warning about is punishable by life imprisonment or death:

Section 295B criminalizes “defiling the Holy Quran,” and carries a penalty of life imprisonment. 295C mandates that those who “by words, either spoken or written, or by visible representation, or by any imputation innuendo, or insinuation, directly, defiles the sacred name of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) shall be punished with death, or imprisonment for life and shall also be liable for fine.”

So we are looking at the punishment of death, imprisonment and/or a fine — and all not necessarily in that order.

Feel safer yet, America?

Representative Jim Jordan Skewers Michael Cohen and Insufferable Hearing Scheme of Leading Democrats… — The Last Refuge

Ranking member of the House Oversight Committee Jim Jordan (R-OH) outlines the fraudulent basis of the testimony from convicted liar Michael Cohen.

In his opening statement during the hearing Jim Jordan outlines how political operative Lanny Davis, a Clinton loyalist, worked with House Democrats and Chairman Elijah Cummings to politicize the use of Michael Cohen’s testimony with specific intention to target President Donald Trump.

.

In his opening statement Jim Jordan brilliantly outlines the democrat playbook, and exposes the entire purpose of the hearing. In his second round of questioning (below) Jordan goes deeper into the Michael Cohen and Lanny Davis fraud.

Wikileaks RIPS Michael Cohen: “Julian Assange Has Never Had a Telephone Call with Roger Stone”… Wikileaks Teased DNC Emails in March 2016 — The Gateway Pundit

Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels famously said, “Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth.”

Democrats stand by this tactic to this day.

On Wednesday former Trump attorney and criminal liar Michael Cohen testified before the House Oversight Committee.

Mr. Cohen told the committee that President Trump knew about the Hillary Clinton email dump in advance.

Michael Cohen: “Mr. Trump knew from Roger Stone in advance about the Wikileaks drop of emails.”

Of course, this was another lie by Michael Cohen.
Later today Wikileaks, once again, called out Cohen for lying under oath.

Wikileaks: Donald Trump’s estranged lawyer, Michael Cohen, who has been sentenced to three years in prison for lying to the FBI, will testify today before Congress that Trump knew about the Wikileaks release in July 2016 during a call with Roger Stone.

Wikileaks had already publicly announced its pending publications and has repeatedly denied speaking to Roger Stone.

This was just another Michael Cohen lie.
And Democrats keep repeating it hoping some day it will be true.

In fact the pending DNC email release was public knowledge.

Julian Assange announced the pending investigation in June.
