June 4 Faith Defined

Scripture Reading: 2 Corinthians 5:1–8

Key Verse: 2 Corinthians 5:7

For we walk by faith, not by sight.

So much is written about faith these days. We think and talk about trusting God, and try, even though we stumble at times, to walk by faith. Many times, it is our trying that trips us up. God wants us to learn to live by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7). This means living with the idea that He is able to do what we cannot do for ourselves. What a victorious thought! It is also a marvelous invitation to experience freedom from doubt, worry, and disbelief.

Before we can trust God fully, we must come to a point of helpless dependence. It is here that we realize we simply cannot do it all, be all that is needed, and have all the answers. If we could, there would be no need for God. We would be in total control and very proud of it. While God gives us the ability to solve many of the problems we face, His greater desire is for us to live our lives dependent on Him. Godly dependence is not a sign of weakness but one of immeasurable strength and confidence. There are problems in life that only God can solve, tasks only He can perform, and solutions that can only be discovered through the wisdom He gives.

The basic foundation to faith is this: trust God more than you trust yourself. When you do this, you gain wisdom and hope for every area of life.

Dear Lord, help me to trust You more. Give me a confident conviction that You keep Your promises.[1]

June 4 Keys to Triumph

Scripture Reading: James 1:1–8

Key Verse: James 1:2

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials.

Problems, heartaches, and pressures have always been a part of the Christian life. The early church suffered greatly at the hands of Roman and Jewish leaders. Early church members often worshiped in secret to avoid arrest and persecution.

How could the early church handle such extreme pressure? The people learned to turn their trials into triumphs by praising and worshiping God. In fact, historians say if one word could be used to characterize the early church, it would be joy.

Throughout the ages, God has always moved in response to the praise and worship of His people. The power of praise and joy opened the doors to Paul and Silas’s jail cell. A shout of praise to God brought down the walls of Jericho. Praise led Hezekiah’s army into victorious battle.

The heartbeat of James’s message to the early church was simple—don’t allow your trials to overcome you. Instead, turn your trials into triumphs.

The keys to triumph are a joyful heart, a willingness to understand God’s ways, a surrendered life, and an attitude of faith. No matter how fierce the trial, how strong the temptation, you can experience victory today by expressing your praises to God.

O God, I don’t want to let my trials overcome me. Give me the ability to turn them into triumphs by understanding Your ways and rejoicing in You. Give me a joyful heart of praise.[1]

June 4 A Winnable War

Scripture reading: Colossians 3:8–11

Key verse: Romans 7:17

It is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.

In the 1860s our nation was embroiled in a bitter civil war—one part of our country pitted against the other. In the twentieth century, America fought in wars with and against other nations.

As a believer, you participate in a spiritual battle with consequences that are just as deadly. Understanding the nature of the conflict, however, can greatly alter the outcome.

Here’s why: when you received Christ as Savior, you received a new spirit, and you became a distinctly new person. Your old identity apart from Christ was done away with.

How does that affect your walk with Christ? Tremendously. As a new creature in Christ, you are no longer at war with yourself. It is not a civil war—the old John Doe versus the new John Doe. If that were the case, you would always be at odds with yourself, and that would be frustrating at best. Such tension often leads to a mediocre Christian experience—winning some and losing a lot.

The truth that sets you free is this: the battle you face is partisan—the new you against the principle and power of sin that still indwell you. This is a winnable war.

Thank You, Lord, for the truth that sets me free. I praise You that I am a new creature in Christ.[1]

Flashback From Four Years Ago: George Soros Admits to Funding the Forced Migration of Muslims Put into Place by the U.N – A Step Closer to the NWO

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

Hard to believe that I wrote this article four years ago. I want the reader to see clearly how this invasion of Muslims into Europe was accomplished.

When the United Nations teams up with George Soros – watch out world!!

Original article from 2015

In this past September’s Sustainable Development Summit at the United Nations, a plan was put in place to ensure that their goals would be met by the year 2030. You can always be sure that a shadowy figure is lurking behind the scenes when plans for One World Government are discussed at the U.N.

This shadowy and unscrupulous man is none other than George Soros – a man who has used his billions to destabilize nations and governments – a man who turned in his own Jewish brothers and sisters to the Nazis during the Holocaust, and facilitated the mass confiscation of the property and wealth…

Esteemed NSA Whistleblower Bill Binney Says He Has Evidence DNC was NOT Hacked – “The Mueller Report and the Rosenstein Indictment Is All Based on Lies!” — The Gateway Pundit

Roger Stone is requesting proof that the Russians hacked the DNC server, as was reported in the Mueller report. He claims if the Russians didn’t hack the DNC, his case should be dismissed.

An IT expert and NSA Whistle blower who looked at the data online can confirm that the DNC data leaked by WikiLeaks was definitively not hacked, it was copied to a disk or flash drive.

We reported on May 11, 2019, that Roger Stone and his legal team are requesting the report from Crowdstrike, the firm connected with the Deep State who reportedly did inspect the DNC server after emails were released by WikiLeaks.

Their position is that if the Mueller team and the FBI did not inspect the DNC server, then how can they know that the server was hacked. This logical argument makes sense –

The Mueller team is fighting back against the Stone team and arguing that it is not necessary to see the documents that support that Russia hacked the DNC –

We’ve been saying for months that the entire Russia collusion delusion is a sham. To date there has been no information reported that ascertains that the DNC was hacked by the Russians. No reports to date show that the DNC server was inspected by the Mueller team and the FBI. Since this is the case, there is no way the Mueller team can claim the server was hacked.

More people believe that the DNC has emails stolen by an insider and this is how the DNC emails reached WikiLeaks. The WikiLeaks team has stated numerous times that Russians did not provide them the DNC emails.

Since there is no proof for the emails being hacked, the reports Russians involved in the collusion delusion evaporate. This would and should destroy the entire Russian sham make-believe case.  Our reporting has been confirmed by others in the Intelligence community.

Overnight it was reported that former NSA employee and whistle blower, Bill Binney, has reviewed the information provided online and it shows that the data coming from the DNC was not hacked but rather copied to a disk or flash drive!

Binney says:

The problem with the Mueller report and the Rosenstein indictment is it’s all based on lies.  I mean the fact they’re still lying about the, saying the DNC was hacked by the Russians and the Russians gave it to WikiLeaks.

Well, we had some of our people and our group, the VIPS, the Veteran Intelligence Professionals, look at the data that WikiLeaks posted on the DNC data.  They actually posted the DNC data…

…that entire set of data was read to a thumb drive or a CD Rom then physically transported.  Now this is what Kim Dotcom is saying.  This is what Julian Assange basically was inferring. Others have been saying the same things.”

It’s clear the DNC was not hacked and it’s more likely an insider like Seth Rich copied the files to a disk drive than that the Russians hacked the DNC.

The major problem Stone has with his case is that his judge is the corrupt Obama appointed Judge Amy Berman Jackson. As we reported, the judge overseeing the Roger Stone case, Amy Berman Jackson, has demanded that she see the entire unredacted Mueller sham report in order to oversee Stone’s case. Judge Jackson is a corrupt Obama appointee who will go to any length to stop a conservative from receiving justice.

Sadly, Judge Jackson has a horrible far left record on the bench. In 2013 Judge Jackson rejected arguments from the Catholic Church that Obamacare’s requirements that employers provide cost free coverage of contraceptive services in spite of being contrary to their religious beliefs. This was overturned by the Supreme Court.

In 2017 Judge Jackson dismissed the wrongful death suit against Hillary Clinton filed by two of the families who lost loved ones in Benghazi. The families argued that Clinton had done little to help their sons and then lied to cover it up.

Then on January 19, 2018, Paul Manafort’s case was reassigned to Judge Jackson on January 19th, a few weeks after being filed.  She put Manafort in solitary confinement.

No individual who disagrees with Obama will receive justice in Judge Jackson’s court.

Judge Jackson was next somehow assigned to the Roger Stone case. She also placed a gag order on Stone as she did Manafort, preventing him from defending himself in the public square while Jackson’s colleagues in the media and at the Mueller team defame Stone daily.

Judge Jackson ordered that she should see sections of the Mueller report related to Roger Stone –

A federal judge in Washington on Thursday ordered the Justice Department to turn over any unredacted sections of Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s report on Russian activities during the 2016 presidential campaign that relate to longtime Republican political operative Roger Stone.

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson gave federal prosecutors until Monday to “submit unredacted versions of those portions of the report that relate to defendant Stone and/or ‘the dissemination of hacked materials.’” Jackson said she would review the material in private to see if it is relevant to the case and to decide whether Stone and his defense team will have access to the material, likely under strict supervision.

Roger Stone will have to wait until corrupt judge Jackson looks at the unredacted Mueller report and determine whether he is allowed to see it! This is unbelievable!!!

Mueller, Weissmann and Judge Amy Berman Jackson should be thrown in jail for their blatant abuse of the US judicial system in torturing and destroying the lives of those who worked with President Trump all based on a pile of lies. Americans want justice!

Judicial Watch: The Russia Hoax “Rests Entirely on Mr. Obama and His Administration… Let’s Get Obama Under Oath!” (VIDEO) — The Gateway Pundit

The Gateway Pundit reported in February 2018 that a text message was released reportedly from corrupt FBI lovers and former Mueller investigators that implicates former President Barack Obama as being involved in the spygate scandal…

FOX News released the text implicating President Obama in the Russia Hoax:

Newly revealed text messages between FBI paramours Peter Strzok and Lisa Page include an exchange about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey to give to President Obama, who wanted “to know everything we’re doing.
The message, from Page to Strzok, was among thousands of texts between the lovers reviewed by FOX News. The pair both worked at one point for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Page wrote to Strzok on Sept. 2, 2016 about prepping Comey because “potus wants to know everything we’re doing.” Senate investigators told FOX News this text raises questions about Obama’s personal involvement in the Clinton email investigation.

Among the newly disclosed texts, Strzok also calls Virginians who voted against then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s wife for a state Senate seat “ignorant hillbillys.” (sic)

Corrupt lovers Strzok and Page both worked at the FBI.  As a matter of fact, they were both very high up at the FBI and are both very corrupt.  Strzok is famous for his activities in protecting Hillary Clinton from criminal charges in 2016.

Both these characters were selected by Robert Mueller to assist in his Russia – Trump farce investigation along with a team of similar characters – all Clinton and Obama cronies.

Yesterday, Judicial Watch’s Chris Farrell said the following about this text on Obama:

…These folks are so far out of bounds and so far beyond that pale.  When people talk about it being a coup, there’s no exaggeration there. It was a coup.  It was an effort to unseat or destabilize the Trump Administration, the President personally but actually his entire administration and we’ve never seen anything like it.

This makes, you know, pick your favorite scandal, Watergate, Whitewater, whatever, it makes all that look like Keystone cops. This was a very sophisticated, very thought out….

There’s a very important text message from Lisa Page to Peter Strzok and that is from November of 2016 and the context for the text message is – Strzok asks Lisa Page, “Hey, what are you doing?”  or words to that effect.

She reports back very excitedly that she’s preparing talking points for Director Comey to go brief the President on what they’re doing.  And the quote from Lisa Page is quote – “POTUS wants to know everything we’re doing” – closed quote.

That POTUS of course is Barack Obama.  And, I will take Lisa Page at her word. It’s an off the cuff communication with her paramour.  She’s excited.  She’s getting the Director prepped.

I want to know, what did Obama know.  What did he approve?  What did he tacitly nod his head for?  What did he explicitly authorize?

This entire, it’s a tragedy.  It’s a scandal we’ve never seen before constitutionally.  This rests entirely on Mr. Obama and his administration.  It starts with them and we need real accountability.  Let’s get Mr. Obama under oath.

President Obama – What did you know and when did you know it?  And more importantly, what did you approve and what were you behind?

Grieving the Holy Spirit — Servants of Grace

Ephesians 4:30, “Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.”

From our knowledge of the Triune God, we know that each person of the Triune God delights in that which the other persons are doing. To that end, there is a mutual indwelling among the persons of the Godhead—the Father in the Son and the Holy Spirit; the Son in the Father and the Holy Spirit in the Father and the Son. When we put on Christ, we put on the Father and the Holy Spirit to live out the new life in Christ according to the pattern the Scriptures prescribe so that God’s people may live in a manner that pleases the Triune Creator. When Christians violate the standards given to disciples of Jesus, not only is the Son of God grieved but so also the Father and the Holy Spirit.

In our passage today, Ephesians 4:30, Paul makes this very point when he warns Christians not to “Grieve the Holy Spirit of God.” When Christians sin, the Holy Spirit experiences grief in a manner appropriate to His deity. The Holy Spirit cannot stand the presence of sin and hates it when God’s people, His dwelling place, entertain transgression (Hab. 1:13). Even though the reality of His grief proves the Holy Spirit’s personhood, this particular grief is not the same as ours. The Holy Spirit cannot be paralyzed by grief for His grief, unlike ours, is always holy, undefiled by sin, ungodly jealousy, and all the other flaws that attend our grief.

The Holy Spirit’s grief is ultimately a mystery as John Calvin comments, “No language can adequately express this solemn truth, that the Holy Spirit rejoices and is glad on our account, when we are obedient to him in all things, and neither think nor speak anything, but what is pure and holy; and, on the other hand, is grieved when we admit anything into our minds that is unworthy of our calling.”

The Holy Spirit is sensitive to sin because of His close relationship with His people, those who have been saved, set apart, and defined as the Lord’s holy people because of Christ alone (1 Peter 1:13-16). The Holy Spirit seals God’s people “for the day of redemption” (Ephesians 1:13-14; Ephesians 4:30). The Holy Spirit dwells within the people of God the moment they trust in the Lord Jesus, marking them as the people of God who will be spared divine wrath on the day of judgment. Through the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit, Christians are daily being conformed into the image of the Lord Jesus. A return to a pattern of life wholly dominated by sin for Christians is impossible for all those whom the Holy Spirit has sealed (Romans 8:29-30). Even though Christians may fall into significant sin, which grieves the Holy Spirit, introducing a distance between Him and His people in relation not to their security in Christ, but to their fellowship and communion with Christ.

Before listing the various attitudes and actions that spring from being forgiving, the apostle says, “Do not grieve the Holy Spirit” (Eph. 4:30). These words challenge our theology as much as they encourage our hearts. We are not accustomed to thinking of our thoughts and actions affecting God’s heart. There are even aspects of our theology that make us question whether it is proper to think this way. The apostle, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, speaks with incredible intimacy about the nature of our God and his heart for us. Just as Christ can be touched by the feelings of our infirmities (Heb. 4:15), his Spirit grieves over our failure to love as we should in the Christian community. There is some poignancy in the consideration that the Holy Spirit, the One who is our Comforter (John 14–16), is himself grieved by our sin. The thought is meant to arrest us and correct us. The same Spirit who convicts my heart of sin, generates in me love for God, gives me new birth, provides my apprehension of the beauty of grace in the world, and seals my redemption until the coming of my Lord—this same Spirit who loves me so intimately and perfectly, I can cause to grieve. Not wanting to hurt him is a strong motivation for not intending the harm of his people or purpose.

The purpose of the Holy Spirit informs us most specifically why antagonisms that disrupt the church disturb him. What is the Holy Spirit’s purpose? It is to testify of Christ. The Spirit’s witness in my heart of the truth of the gospel is the seal on my heart that I am his for the day of redemption. Jesus said, “But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me” (John 15:26 KJV). When we are indwelt by the Spirit but possess attitudes or actions that are not reflective of Jesus, we undermine the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Thus, the progression and witness of the gospel require not grieving the Spirit by any form of malice that creates disturbances within our heart or his church.

When God’s people sense a distance in their relationship to God, it’s wise to ask ourselves if we are engaged in some persistent, sin that grieves the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit may withdraw for a time so we might recognize that our sin has grieved Him and that we need to deal with it. When Christians do sin, we are to turn from sin to Christ alone who offers forgiveness for sin (1 John 1:9), since He is our Advocate (1 John 2:1), so that they may not grieve the Holy Spirit and live according to the pattern God has prescribed for His people in His Word.

Hillary Clinton’s Russia collusion IOU: The answers she owes America — Christian Research Network

“In short, the Clinton machine flooded the FBI with pressure — and bad intel — until an investigation of Trump was started. The bureau and its hapless sheriff at the time, James Comey, eventually acquiesced with the help of such Clinton fans as then-FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.”

(John Solomon – The Hill)   During the combined two decades she served as a U.S. senator and secretary of State, Hillary Clinton’s patrons regularly donated to her family charity when they had official business pending before America’s most powerful political woman.

The pattern of political IOUs paid to the Clinton Foundation was so pernicious that the State Department even tried to execute a special agreement with the charity to avoid the overt appearance of “pay-to-play” policy.

Still, the money continued to flow by the millions of dollars, from foreigners and Americans alike who were perceived to be indebted to the Clinton machine or in need of its help.

It’s time for the American public to call in their own IOU on political transparency.  View article →

Rachel Maddow’s Ratings Plunge, CNN Ratings Drop Another 16% In Prime-Time — The Gateway Pundit

Rachel Maddow’s reign is coming to an end.

The hard-left MSNBC talking head has pulled strong ratings since Donald Trump was elected. But things have changed dramatically since the report from special counsel Robert Mueller was released.

Maddow has pushed the Russia-Trump collusion for more than two years, but Mueller’s report said there was insufficient evidence to prove the charge. Mueller also refused to proceed with charges of alleged obstruction.

In May, Maddow’s show suffered its worst ratings since Trump took office, losing 500,000 viewer, Fox News reports.

There appears to be a direct connection to the Mueller report, which was released April 18. In the first quarter of 2019, Maddow averaged 3.1 million viewers each night. But in May, she averaged just 2.6 million viewers.

“Maddow lost nearly 500,000 viewers for her first episode following the release of Barr’s letter,” Fox reported. “Then she plummeted 13 percent in April compared to the same month in 2018, according to TVNewser, falling behind “Tucker Carlson Tonight” in the process. In May she averaged 2.6 million – her worst month since Trump took office – and a far cry from the 3.1 million viewers she averaged during the first quarter of 2019.”

What’s more, the New York Times doesn’t want its reporters to appear on Maddow’s show, Vanity Fair reported. The Times wasn’t worried about ratings, though, but rather the fact that Maddow is just “too partisan.”

Meanwhile, CNN’s prime-time ratings have crumbled again, dropping 16% last month. The liberal network’s prime-time viewers averaged 761,000 viewers. Worse, the network’s viewers total viewers daily dropped to only 559,000 viewers. Fox News, meanwhile, averaged 2.3 million prime-time viewers and more than 1.3 million total day viewers.

CNN has been nuking conservative contributors over the past several months. Last week, the network fired former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli after reports emerged that he was in the running for a Department of Homeland Security post in the Trump administration.

The network also canned economic analyst Stephen Moore after Trump said he was going to nominate him to serve on the Federal Reserve Board. CNN and other outlets reported about old comments Moore made about women and President Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama, and Moore withdrew his name from consideration.

Moore wasn’t happy. “CNN is the hate Trump network,” he said. “They just trash Trump every single hour of every single day. All they’ve talked about for two years is the [special counsel Robert] Mueller report — and how bad does it make them look now that it proved nothing?”

After Mueller’s highly anticipated report on alleged collusion between Trump and Russia came and went in April with a whimper, CNN’s prime-time ratings plunged 26% from the same period in 2018. CNN suffered its lowest-rated month in viewers since October 2015, according to Nielsen Media Research’s ratings. CNN had just 767,000 average prime-time viewers, down from 1.04 million in April 2018.

Bryan Lanza, a former Trump campaign deputy communications director, said the plunging numbers are because CNN is now purely “anti-Trump.” “If you hate Trump, you tune to CNN to validate your hatred,” Lanza told Mediaite. “Not sure it’s a winning formula — and I’m validated by their last-place performance against other outlets.”
