I have been undergoing an extremely stressful and busy time in my life and I have kind of had to select what I’m going to do and drop and unfortunately as much as I love communicating with people, even those I don’t agree with, I’ve just had to put my two blogs on the back burner.

I’m not unemployed at the moment but at my current job i would consider myself under-employed, which has led to a major share of my stress level and not being able to carry the load I’ve been carrying for the last 3 years.

Keep the faith and keep on keepin on.

FBI SPY FLYER

When I stopped laughing long enough to be wipe my eyes and breath, I thought I would add a fourth part to this series of posts.
Remember that flyer from the FBI that was posted on WND that I showed and talked about in my post “FBI’s most wanted list Part II”?

I just wanted to Hi-lite a few things from that flyer, and a few of the many reasons why it is so incredibly stupid.

Obviously whoever wrote it never took a class on Critical Thinking 101 or ever learned about logical errors or even has any logic for that matter.

1. According to the flyer, as you can see, Crocodile Dundee has to be a terrorist worthy of being arrested. He is not only interested in using dynamite for a purpose other than it was intended for, he did use it…
Pay close attention to the end of this video for proof that Crocodile Dundee is a terrorist.

2. According to this section, I must be a terrorist because I’m missing parts of two of my fingers on my right hand. Never mind the fact that they were severed on a gasket cutting machine in an industrial accident when I was only nineteen.
3. According to this section, FEMA has to be infested with terrorists. Look at the official FEMA website… http://www.fema.gov/areyouready/assemble_disaster_supplies_kit.shtm
Look at this snip from their website:

According this this flyer it’s a sin to just be a wise steward of their money, who isn’t stupid enough to use a credit card for everything and spend a tremendous amount on interest rates when you don’t have to.

And sense when is it a criminal act to protect your identity from everyone who asks for it.
I went to a medical clinic and they asked for my social security number and I told them they didn’t need it. Am I a terrorist? Don’t think so Tim!

Believe it or not the FBI has published this incredible flyer to encourage American citizens to spy on each other and report to the listed number on the flyer. Ripley himself, wouldn’t even believe this one.

Amerikans spy on your neighbors


Below is a link to an article from WND that discusses a recent flyer issued by the FBI.

Well, I don’t think even Ripley would believe this load of cra* that Obama’s administration is hoisting upon the American public.
Below is an article from the Spokane Examiner, isn’t it amazing how you never hear about the Obama administration trying to rip our rights away on major publications or major news networks?

“I’ve never said a prayer in my life that didn’t end with Jesus Christ,” said the Rev. Scott Rainey, left, who’s shown with Erin Leu, attorney for Liberty Institute.

Federal judge overrules Obama VA, says pastor can pray in the name of Jesus
By Joe Newby, Spokane Conservative Examiner
..

One would expect to hear a Christian pastor pray in the name of Jesus at a cemetery on Memorial Day.

That’s what Pastor Scott Rainey of Houston’s Living Word Church of the Nazarene has done for the last two years. This year, however, he was ordered not to by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Houston National Cemetery.

After being asked to submit his prayer in writing before the service, the pastor was told by cemetery director Arleen Ocasio he could not pray unless he edited the text and removed the name “Jesus.”

The prayer concluded with “in the name of Jesus Christ, the risen Lord.”

“Our national cemeteries are places for all veterans of all beliefs,” Ocasio wrote. “We cannot be exclusive at a ceremony meant to be inclusive for all our nation’s veterans.”

Attorney Geoff Berg supported Ocasio’s position, calling it “the American way.” “This is a country without a specific religion,” he told My Fox Houston.

But a federal judge stepped in and the pastor was allowed to give his prayer.

According to Fox News:

U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes issued the order preventing the Dept. of Veterans Affairs and the Houston National Cemetery from ordering Pastor Scott Rainey to remove the name of Jesus from his prayer. The judge ruled that such censorship violated the First Amendment.

The First Amendment reads:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Jeff Mateer of the Liberty Institute represented Rainey, and called the action by the VA ‘government censorship.’

“Our veterans fought and many died for our religious freedom and to have it stripped away under the façade of inclusiveness is the height of offense to those who have served our country,” he said.

Jared Woodfill, Chairman of the Harris county Republican Party, called the move “religious persecution” by “the wild-eyed left.” Woodfill writes:

Respected Houston Pastor Scott Rainey, who has delivered invocations before the Texas State House of Representatives, the Harris County Commissioners Court, and for the past two years, at the Houston National Cemetery’s Memorial Day Ceremony, was denied the permission to pray according to his faith.

Woodfill’s harshest criticism was directed at the Obama administration:

The Obama Administration is trying to socialize the American economy and now they’re also coming after our religious liberty.

Liberty Institute attorney Erin Leu told Fox News Radio that Ocasio’s actions were clearly unconsitutional and issued a warning: “People should be very alarmed that the government was attempting to censor someone’s private religious prayer.”

For now, Pastor Rainey can continue to pray in the name of Jesus Christ – even in a National Cemetery.

“I have never said a prayer in my life where I didn’t end it by saying ‘in the name of Jesus Christ, I pray, amen,’” Rainey told My Fox Houston.

There are many amongst supposed evangelicals who are wild about Obama. Amazingly enough 25% of those claiming to be Evangelicals voted for him in the last election.
Obama still has links to Socialist/Communist organizations. The US Communist Party just threw their hat in the ring for Obama 2012. He has links with Bill Ayers, a known US Terrorist and bomber. He has had links with the violent Black Panther Party via his former advisor Van Jones.
He has countenanced his former Pastor who is as evil and filled with white hate as anyone can be and friends with Louis Farrakhan who has said all sorts of nasty things about everyone, including his fellow African Americans.
Some of my fond memories of Louis are the following comments:

White people are potential humans…they haven’t evolved yet.”
Philadelphia Inquirer, 3/18/00

According to a journalist’s account, “Farrakhan called ‘the white man’ the ‘anti-Christ’ to rousing applause.”
Jackson, MS, 9/19/97, Clarion-Ledger, 9/21/97

I won’t insult the intelligence of the reader by printing any more of his trash.

The man who was somehow elected to the Whitehouse despite so many moral reasons and some legal reasons why he should not have been, is a man who supports the tearing down of our nation, has insulted our nation and has allowed Trillions of dollars to be wasted, in fact if we as citizens did what the liberals have done to our nations money I’d be shot as a traitor.

No one cares, the press sits silent as Obama and his fellow Socialist’s rape our nation. Far too many Pastor’s sit idly by an say nothing.

But there is at least one pastor who gets it and is willing to speak the truth.
Below is an excerpt from a Sunday morning sermon from a Pastor somewhere in the South, in the former Bible Belt.

Genesis 47:13-27

RECENT VIRGINIA CHURCHSERVICE – STIMULUS SERMON

I would love to give the Pastor of this predominantly black church in Virginia a hug and a high five. This guy is obviously a leader.

Perhaps we should each decide who our real leader is. It is amazing to see that very little has changed in 4,000 years.

—————————————————

Good morning, brothers and sisters; it’s always a delight to see the pews crowded on Sunday morning, and so eager to get into God’s Word. Turn with me in your Bibles, if you will to the 47th chapter of Genesis, we’ll begin our reading at verse 13, and go through verse 27.

Brother Ray, would you stand and read that great passage for us? ….. (reading)
(Read along by clicking on http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Genisis%2047:13-27&version=KJV )

Thank you for that fine reading, Brother Ray. So we see that economic hard times fell upon Egypt, and the people turned to the government of Pharaoh to deal with this for them. And Pharaoh nationalized the grain harvest, and placed the grain in great storehouses that he had built. So the people brought their money to Pharaoh, like a great tax increase, and gave it all to him willingly in return for grain. And this went on until their money ran out, and they were hungry again.

So when they went to Pharaoh after that, they brought their livestock – their cattle, their horses, their sheep, and their donkey – to barter for grain, and verse 17 says that only took them through the end of that year.

But the famine wasn’t over, was it? So the next year, the people came before Pharaoh and admitted they had nothing left, except their land and their own lives. “There is nothing left in the sight of my lord but our bodies and our land. Why should we die before your eyes, both we and our land? Buy us and our land for food, and we with our land will be servants to Pharaoh.” So they surrendered their homes, their land, and their real estate to Pharaoh’s government, and then sold themselves into slavery to him, in return for grain.

What can we learn from this, brothers and sisters?

That turning to the government instead of to God to be our provider in hard times only leads to slavery? Yes. That the only reason government wants to be our provider is to also become our master? Yes.

But look how that passage ends, brothers and sisters! Thus Israel settled in the land of Egypt, in the land of Goshen. And they gained possessions in it, and were fruitful and multiplied greatly.” God provided for His people, just as He always has! They didn’t end up giving all their possessions to government, no, it says they gained possessions! But I also tell you a great truth today, and an ominous one.

We see the same thing happening today – the government today wants to “share the wealth” once again, to take it from us and redistribute it back to us. It wants to take control of healthcare, just as it has taken control of education, and ration it back to us, and when government rations it, then government decides who gets it, and how much, and what kind. And if we go along with it, and do it willingly, then we will wind up no differently than the people of Egypt did four thousand years ago – as slaves to the government, and as slaves to our leaders.

What Mr. Obama’s government is doing now is no different from what Pharaoh’s government did then, and it will end the same. And a lot of people like to call Mr. Obama a “Messiah,” don’t they? Is he a Messiah? A savior? Didn’t the Egyptians say, after Pharaoh made them his slaves, “You have saved our lives; may it please my lord, we will be servants to Pharaoh”? Well, I tell you this – I know the Messiah; the Messiah is a friend of mine; and Mr. OBAMA IS NO MESSIAH! No, brothers and sisters, if Mr. Obama is a character from the Bible, then he is Pharaoh. Bow with me in prayer, if you will…

Lord, You alone are worthy to be served, and we rely on You, and You alone. We confess that the government is not our deliverer, and never rightly will be. We read in the eighth chapter of 1 Samuel, when Samuel warned the people of what a ruler would do, where it says “And in that day you will cry outbecause of your king, whom you have chosen for yourselves, butthe LORD will not answer you in that day..”

And Lord, we acknowledge that day has come. We cry out to you because of the ruler that we have chosen for ourselves as a nation. Lord, we pray for this nation. We pray for revival, and we pray for deliverance from those who would be our masters. Give us hearts to seek You and hands to serve You, and protect Your people from the atrocities of Pharaoh’s government.

In God We Trust…

I was originally going to send this to this persons email, but his website doesn’t give any way to contact him, so this is just an open post for him to respond to in case he ever sees it.
Feel free to respond whether you agree or disagree.

Hello Mr. Stewart,
This is a letter that I’m going to post on my blog https://1personofdifference.wordpress.com
I Post this in response to your article “It’s the Blood of Jesus!” on your blog page:
http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Believer’s%20Corner/Doctrines/blood.htm
I and my wife have been going to your website for quite some time as we are researchers and concerned by the heresies and apostasy going on in God’s church today. One major heresy and apostasy is hyper focusing on something that is not crucial to salvation and making something to be more than it is to be divisive and cause confusion in the church. I would strongly urge you to rethink your stance on this and to repent and also to apologize to John Macarthur for the deplorable way that you have accused him of not being a Christian brother. This letter is in hopes of edification not of pointing fingers. Paul tells us what we are supposed to do when a brother is wrong and I do so humbly and with love.
While I agree with you wholeheartedly about the Seventh Day Adventist’s being severely incorrect in a lot of things and being cultish in nature, I think you are way off and on the fringe of participating in heretical acts.
If you have had any change in your beliefs but have yet to change your website I would welcome any comments to my blog post.
This is not to attack you; you did enough attacking in your comments about John Macarthur. We are called to be discerners, rightly dividing the word of truth by brother Paul in 2 Timothy.
There is a specific misunderstanding in your desire to promote the blood of Jesus over Jesus himself.
What is my argument that what you are saying is heresy? The argument that I have laid forth and answered in these pages is that you are in essence saying that Jesus’ birth, earthly testimony, torture, death, burial, resurrection into heaven is not enough to save us, that he had to perform a final work. This after jumping all over the Seventh Day Adventists for the heresy of requiring works to enter into heaven in their pushing of the “Work of investigative judgment”.
You are attempting to get us to believe that Christ’s work on the cross was not enough he had to perform a “work” of his one, before he could atone for our sins. This idea of yours doesn’t seem the slightest bit heretical too you? When Jesus said, “It is Finished” he was talking about the need for the Old Testament and its need for animal sacrifice as a temporary atonement each time an Israelite sinned. He was also saying there would be a new Passover and it would bring the Holy Spirit into our lives. We would no longer need a physical sprinkling of a lambs blood over our doors to protect us from the Spirit of Death. We have the forever lamb’s blood in our hearts which as Paul tells us is the living temple, sanctified and held holy by the spirit who is the physical/spiritual embodiment of Jesus our High Priest.
Why do we not see in the word of God that our redemption wasn’t finished until he ceremoniously dripped his blood on the mercy seat. That is part of what was finished on the Cross, Old Testament rabbinical and priestly ceremony.
Hebrews 9:12 – Hebrews 10:19-42 – do indeed point to Christ’s blood, but to just simply see the blood as the be-all/end-all and to say there was more than the cross, is not only incorrect but heretical.
First, we know that the sacrificial lamb had to be without blemish. Christ was without blemish, both before and after his physical death.
By the time Jesus was talking to Mary, he had been buried in Joseph’s tomb, and the stone had been rolled away and he was gone… When the women came to care for his body (T)he Angel of the Lord said to them … “Who have you come for? He is raised from the dead.”
By the time Mary had come to seek him, Jesus had gone to the gates of hell in a representative fashion of our fallen state (The sins of the world were placed on him and God turned from him as God could have no sin, or know no sin. Since Jesus is part of the triune Godhead, Jesus had to literally be not only physically separated from the Holy Father but spiritually separated from the Father as well.) I personally think that is what scared him so much in the garden was the knowledge of that spiritual separation more than the physical death.
While I respect Dr. DeHaan and listened to the DeHaan clan on the radio for years, I think Dr. DeHaan was incorrect in several aspects in the piece you quoted from his book, “The Tabernacle.”
I don’t believe that what he was telling her was that he wasn’t consecrated yet. He was consecrated by the very fact that he was Jesus Christ. I believe he was cognizant as a man that Mary was a human, and she would probably have her hopes up that he would remain with them in his sanctified body so they could worship him on earth. Remember also that she was a Jew and the Jews of the day had the thought that the Messiah would bring God’s kingdom to earth and defeat the Roman tyranny. I think the reason he said don’t touch me was because he didn’t want her heart to be broken when he left. Even the men who were his disciples, who should have known better after following him everywhere for three years, had a hard time believing that he had returned from the dead. In fact this brings my point to bear that you and Dr. DeHaan are wrong in your ideas about why the Christ told Mary not to touch him. If you remember, at the time that he met the disciples in the upper room, he talked with Thomas, and because of Thomas’s doubts he told him to touch his hands and feel his wounds so that he would believe wholeheartedly. This would tell us that what you and Dr. DeHaan believe is wrong.
Remember he wasn’t just some guy walking around the outskirts of the city with bloody holes in his hands and feet, he was God as well as man. The very fact that he was the atonement for our sins through his death, burial and resurrection, means that he was consecrated to begin with because as we know from the Old Testament history the lamb had to be spotless. But there the comparison ends because he was not only spotless from birth but perfect and Holy. I believe that you are incorrect in your interpretation of scripture as to what our Lord Jesus meant when he said, “It is finished”.
Jesus was referring to the Old Testament covenant. What do I mean by that?
1. Jesus himself is now the Holy of Holies and the Mercy seat.
2. The Tabernacle is no longer necessary, as Paul tells us in Corinthians, and Jesus tells the Disciples before the day of Pentecost. The instant of our salvation, the Holy Spirit enters our body and our body becomes a living temple that we are required to treat with reverence and dignity.
3. As Jesus breathed his last breath on the Cross, darkness came over the whole earth. The Veil that covered the entrance of the Holy of Holies was ripped in two. This is significant in its timing following’ Jesus cry of “It is Finished!” He physically and spiritually became the lamb that was slain, without blemish, totally replacing the need for Old Testament restitution or atonement. No longer were our sins just covered over, but totally removed. As we read in the word, “totally blotted out from The Book of Life.”
4. As with most Old Testament history, the Passover was merely a foreshadowing of Jesus’ work on the Cross. The act of spreading the Lamb’s blood for the passing over of the spirit of death, was to be done by the head of each household. Yes the blood of a lamb was the Icon that the spirit of death was looking for, but the actual application of the blood was applied by human hands. Jesus as the son of man and the Son of God was the true personification of the lamb’s blood preventing the Spirit of Death from taking us to eternal spiritual damnation and death.
5. Where did Christ’s blood come from? It came from the Roman Centurions beating him, whipping him with a cat of 9 tails, and putting the Crown of Thorns on his head, then nailing his hands and feet to the Cross, then finally from the spear thrust into his side, blood and water flowed, mingled down.
Your hyper-fixation on Christ’s blood, and trying to say that he wasn’t sanctified before going up into heaven, and that Christ’s work wasn’t done on the cross simply because he hadn’t sprinkled the blood on the Mercy Seat yet is a damnable heresy and you are hoisted on your own Petard that you falsely accuse our Brother John Macarthur of.
He was already sanctified and holy before he came to earth so there was no need not to be touched, and as we already said he was touched by Thomas. There is no Biblical evidence that he had already ascended then re-descended before speaking with the Apostles, so the mere fact that Thomas touched him physically, totally destroys your argument.
Your assertions are not only wrong, but heretical because you are calling Jesus’ death on the cross an incomplete and insufficient work.
What Macarthur is saying is correct, while Christ’s blood is certainly a part of the sacrifice for our sins, it is not alone in its importance to our salvation. Jesus’ physical blood as it flowed through his veins was no different than yours or mine. It was needed to remain inside the body to sustain life, like water and food and nutrients. It is the penultimate culmination of Jesus sacrifice for us, but it is neither the only part nor the most important part. When you add the blood however to everything else however, it becomes the blood of the Lamb of God that washes away, not just covers our sins.
When John Macarthur states that his physical blood is merely a manifestation you are throwing the baby out with the bathwater and ignorantly or intentionally missing what Macarthur is saying.
The blood of a mere mortal would not atone for anyone’s sins. It is a factor among many factors.
1. Jesus is son of man and Son of God, a full part of the Holy Trinity.
2. Jesus had to make a way for an end-all/be-all for our sins.
3. Jesus was born a perfect birth through the spirit as foretold in Isaiah and other Old Testament proclamations
4. Jesus’ earthly life had two purposes, to wake the sleeping and point the way to eternal salvation in heaven and to glorify the Father.
5. Jesus taught that through him and his death, burial, and resurrection was the only path to salvation through faith. Isaiah tells us that the lamb came that he might be slaughtered and lifted up.
6. Christ was betrayed and through that betrayal, and the sins of the world, became totally separate from God for a short time so that the Holy Father, could bring to bear the full brunt of his judgment against his son for the guilt of the world.
7. He was prosecuted and persecuted and had a crown of thorns put on his head, beaten so bad he needed help walking, and then his hands and feet were nailed to a cross and then the cross was raised to cause torture and a slow death by suffocation.
8. He descended into hell, was raised again and seen by a large witness of people, and then was taken up into heaven where he sits on the throne next to God the Father.
In the following paragraph, Dr. DeHaan is completely wrong when he asserts that this is a comparison between the Old Testament priest and Christ as our new High Priest in the order of Melchizedek, “we remember that the high priest after he had offered the sacrifice, was to enter the holy of holies, before he did anything else, with the precious blood. No one was allowed to approach him. Everyone was shut out until this was completely done.”
When Christ died on the cross it was truly finished. To say that he had to go to heaven and sprinkle his blood on the Mercy Seat is heresy because it’s adding works to Christ’s gift of his death on the Cross at Calvary. Jesus was and is perfect, the son of man and the Son of God, nothing else was required. He is the mercy seat. He is the Holy of Holies and he resides in our hearts which is the new temple. Indeed, Christ’s blood was shed on the Mercy Seat, but it was done as he was dying on the Cross.
You mix metaphors with reality. You say that he had to go to heaven to sprinkle his blood on the Mercy Seat. Well if you are relating him as the high priest, then that is an incorrect and heretical assumption and adding to the word something that is never spoken. If Jesus tells us that the Holy Spirit is going to come down and fill us, and Paul tells us that the temple is now in our bodies, why would Jesus have to go to Heaven to the Mercy Seat when the Mercy Seat was in the temple in the Holy of Holies in the first place?
If God the Father sent his Son to die here on earth because he had to be a human with spiritual perfection, and all the Old Testament points to this like a lighthouse in the fog, why would his work on the Cross not complete our salvation and he had to go to Heaven?
By making this Heretical assumption, you are literally removing the holy deity of Christ, and his work on the Cross, and personifying a single part of the case of salvation.
We are not called to judge men or their salvation, we are called to seek out their fruits and judge their fruits. I see no fruit of heresy or lack of salvation on the part of John Macarthur. I may not 100% buy the 5 points of Calvinism but I would certainly not deny him as a brother in Christ, nor call him a heretic.
Jesus on the Cross said it was finished and it was! To add anything to that or take anything away from that is strongly warned about in Revelations 22.

  • Angie’s good deeds continue!

     Angelina Jolie touches down in Altinozu, Turkey, on Friday afternoon, where she’ll meet with nearly 10,000 refugees from war-torn Syria.

    The Associated Press reports that 36-year-old Jolie, Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner, will be greeted at the refugee camp with a 16-yard banner reading “Goodness Angel of the World, Welcome.”

     The refugees have fled Syria due to a violent crackdown on anti-government protesters.

     Jolie, whose last humanitarian visit was to Tunisia (where thousands had fled from Libya) in April, is currently staying with Brad Pitt and their six kids in an $11 million mansion in Malta. Pitt, 47, is filming “World War Z” in the southern European nation.


  • While I feel sorry for the People of Syria that had to flee to Turkey, they obviously have no clue what an angel is!
