Quotable Quotations

FBI Director James Comey At The Hearing Of The House Judiciary Committee On Wednesday, 9/28/16:   “Call me whatever you want, call us wrong, but don’t call me a weasel.”

I have quite a few other names I could call him like turncoat, compromising Clinton sycophant, lukewarm, doormat, wishy-washy, weak and anemic enabler of the Clinton machine, insipid, destroyer of the former great and reputable FBI, etc., etc., etc.  …But I won’t call him a weasel even though he is one.

FBI Director James Comey, speaking at a hearing of the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, defended his decision not to recommend the DOJ prosecute Hillary Clinton, and pleaded with lawmakers not to call him a “weasel.”

You can call us wrong, but don’t call us weasels. We are not weasels,” weaselled Comey, who at six foot eight inches tall is hands down the biggest weasel in American politics right now.

 

Southern Baptist Convention ~ June 12-15, 2016 ~ Part 12

Southern Baptist Convention   ~   June  14-15, 2016    ~    St. Louis

************

Business Highlights:

1)Golden Gate Seminary in San Francisco underwent a name change to Gateway Seminary.

2)Women should not be drafted.  Women may enlist in the armed forces.  That decision is entirely up to each individual.

3)Southern Baptists voted to NOT endorse the displaying of the Confederate Flag.  It offends some of our black brethren and others.  Retired Judge Paul Pressler from Texas who always comes to the Southern Baptist Convention, wanted to address this issue.  He was not afforded the opportunity to speak and as a result, he was very angry.  James Merritt won the moment with the following quotation that rang with clarity to all who heard it:

“All the Confederate Flags in the world are not worth one soul of any race.”

4)The Southern Baptist Convention voted to support Israel.  A vocal minority who believed in “replacement theology,” expressed their viewpoint that Israel is no more special in God’s eyes than any other country.  [Replacement Theology is a view held by a minority of evangelicals.  They believe that God is finished with using the nation of Israel in His plan, and that the Lord only works through the church now.  A thorough exegesis of the scriptures and end times prophecy reveals this viewpoint to be false].  Their spokesman even claimed he was an orthodox Jew from Israel.  Nonetheless, the SBC voted overwhelmingly to support Israel.

5)There should be a sensitivity given to Gays and the LGBT, yet it is vitally important that they acknowledge their sin, prayerfully leading to their repentance.

6)Several budget items were presented from the SBC Executive Committee, and “rubber stamped” by the messengers who came to the convention.  There were 7,321 registered messengers at the 2016 convention.

7)Seminary Update:  “Out of the ten largest seminaries in America, six of them are Southern Baptist.”  Paige Patterson  Another interesting fact is that Conservative Seminaries are thriving, while secular Seminaries are dying.  Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (SBTS) in Louisville, Kentucky, has over 5,000 students – the most pastoral students EVER in one school at one time.

Voting For The President Of The Southern Baptist Convention

The Three Candidates:

1)David Crosby from First Baptist Church of New Orleans, Louisiana, endorsed by Fred Luter.

2)Steve Gaines from Bellevue Baptist Church, Memphis, Tennessee, endorsed by Johnny Hunt.

3)J.D. Greer from Summit Church, Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, endorsed by Jimmy Scoggins.

Presidential Vote:  After 2 votes, Steve Gaines was three votes short of the needed votes.  There was to be a third vote.  Greer conceded to Gaines, while Gaines later stated he was going to concede to Greer.  Steve Gaines was elected since he was a bit higher in the votes from the last vote.  It was a work of grace and unity for these candidates to concede to each other.  Steve Gaines is our new president.

J.D. Greer and Steve Gaines were an interesting contrast.  Steve Gaines represents a classic flagship SBC church, following Adrian Rogers as their pastor.  J.D. Greer is oriented towards the millenial generation, and incredibly, had a jihad declared on him while he was serving as a missionary overseas.  His picture was displayed before radical Islamics, and a death warrant was placed upon him.  That is why I voted for him.

Our Daily Bread / Shaping Your Thoughts / August 12, 2016

Read: Romans 12:1-8
Bible in a Year: Psalms 84-86; Romans 12

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. —Romans 12:2

When Marshall McLuhan coined the phrase “the medium is the message” in 1964, personal computers were unknown, mobile phones were science fiction, and the Internet didn’t exist. Today we understand what great foresight he had in predicting how our thinking is influenced in this digital age. In Nicholas Carr’s book The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains, he writes, “[The media] supply the stuff of thought, but they also shape the process of thought. And what the Net seems to be doing is chipping away my capacity for concentration and contemplation. Whether I’m online or not, my mind now expects to take in information the way the Net distributes it: in a swiftly moving stream of particles.”

I like J. B. Phillips’s paraphrase of Paul’s message to the Christians in Rome: “Don’t let the world around you squeeze you into its own mould, but let God re-mould your minds from within, so that you may prove in practice that the plan of God for you is good, meets all his demands and moves towards the goal of true maturity” (Rom. 12:2). How relevant this is today as we find our thoughts and the way our minds process material affected by the world around us.

We cannot stem the tide of information that bombards us, but we can ask God each day to help us focus on Him and to shape our thinking through His presence in our lives. —David McCasland

Father in heaven, still and focus my mind, quiet my heart, and fill me with Your thoughts throughout this day.

Let God’s Spirit, not the world, shape your mind.
INSIGHT: Tradition has it that the apostle Peter brought the gospel to Rome. This is unlikely as there is no historical evidence that Peter was ever in Rome. The gospel was probably brought into Rome in two ways. First, among the three thousand converted on the day of Pentecost, there were “visitors from Rome” (Acts 2:10). These converted returnees could have brought the gospel back home. Second, because it was the capital city of the Roman Empire, thousands of other believers (visitors, tourists, soldiers, traders, businessmen, and migrants) would have come into Rome. These visiting believers would have brought the gospel with them. Sim Kay Tee

Southern Baptist Convention ~ June 12-15, 2016 ~ Part 11

Southern Baptist Convention   ~   June  14, 2016    ~    St. Louis

President’s Address:  Ronnie Floyd

Paul Ryan (Speaker of the House):  “The stakes could not be higher.”

Theme: Racism

Message:  The Stakes Are High – God gave Ronnie this message after twenty one days of fasting and prayer.  In the midst of terrorism, we have called 1,000 missionaries home.

We want to save a gorilla and murder babies.  Gay marriages are accepted.  Rainbow colors fly over the White House.  Our religious liberties in America are at stake.  The Israelites were taken to Babylon.

Esther 4:13-17

13 Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther, Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king’s house, more than all the Jews.

14 For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?

15 Then Esther bade them return Mordecai this answer,

16 Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.

17 So Mordecai went his way, and did according to all that Esther had commanded him.

We are here at the right time to accomplish the purposes of God.

If Satan cannot get us to do the wrong thing, he will get us to do the right thing in the wrong way.  Both are sin.

America is in a crisis.  We face either an awakening, or falling into an abyss.  America is in an economic, relational and racial crisis.  “All men are created equal.”  Declaration of Independence.  Dread Scott Decision.

1)Now is the time for Southern Baptists to come together.

John 17:21 King James Version (KJV)

21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

2)Now is the time for Southern Baptists to lead.  Structures are needed to support the work of the church.

3)Now is the time for Southern Baptists to evangelize.  Evangelism is the main thing, but is dying in our denomination and churches.

4)Now is the time for Southern Baptist to give.  Cooperative Program (CP).

5)Now is the time for Southern Baptists to prayer.  We are meeting to pray tonight.  Acts 4:31  “And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.”

Bring prayer back to the schools, but also bring it back to the church!  9/11/01  2996 people were killed, 6,000 were injured.  We need 1)prayer and a 2)great awakening.

Jeremiah 7:28   “But thou shalt say unto them, This is a nation that obeyeth not the voice of the Lord their God, nor receiveth correction: truth is perished, and is cut off from their mouth.”  -We do not want to be this nation.  Ronnie Floyd closed the message with an altar call for pastoral commitment.

**********

Jerry Young spoke on A National Conversation On Racial Unity in America.  He referred to the recent tragedy in South Carolina.  Racism is a sin problem.  We are salt and light.  We are contaminated salt and concealed light.  We need to press the salt and turn on the lights.  The one who murdered nine in Charleston wanted to create fear and terror – but he went to the wrong place – to church.  “Love is greater than hate.”  Marshall Blalock

How To Be Saved

It is imperative that the most important doctrine in all of Christendom is repeated frequently on this blog site, and that is the plan of salvation.  What good is it to learn a lot about the Bible if you are not saved/born again/and washed in the shed blood of Jesus Christ?  What good is it to you if you know the plan but not the Man?  It is one thing to know the plan of salvation… but then we must put feet on our faith.  We must repent from sin and trust in God’s only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, for salvation.  Listen to Billy Graham and Charles Stanley preach on this monumental doctrine:

A Christian Pastor Assesses Donald Trump

Open the following link for a character assessment of Donald Trump by a Christian pastor.  I agree with this pastor.  Donald has character flaws, yet is great on policy.  Is there something wrong with carefully screening immigrants in order for our nation NOT to be destroyed by people who do not concur with our way of life and freedoms?  Is there a problem with a desire to refuse illegal immigration?  While other leaders do not support our military veterans and law enforcement personnel, Donald does.  Is there a problem with creating and enhancing trade and jobs in our nation?  If we do not secure our borders, we will no longer be America.  The left wing media erroneously paints him as a racist, a fascist, a bigot, and an extremist, yet they never touch on his platform and policies.  I wonder why?  Pastor Steve

Eschatology 32 ~ Why I Believe In A Pre Tribulation Rapture

This verse highlights God’s ideals when judging Sodom and Gomorrah.  It highlights the hermeneutical Law  (Principle) of First Mention.  God NEVER changes.  “I am the Lord and I change not.”  “I am the same yesterday, today and forever.”  He separated believers from unbelievers, and the righteous from the unrighteous at every judgment: The Flood Of Noah, Sodom And Gomorrah, and Rahab At Jericho.  The Tribulation Period will feature millions, and even billions of people of dying, as the Lord treads the wine press and unleashes His fury on a Christ rejecting world.  God’s word says “My judgment will be without mercy.”  Many Christians underestimate the fury that will be unleashed during the Great Tribulation.  The Bible calls it the period of Jacob’s trouble.  All hell will break loose on the planet earth, during this apocalyptic judgment.  If I would not wish this on my worst enemy (and I would not), then tell me why the Lord would break His own covenant of love and redemption for the body of Christ?  It simply does not add up.  This blog site has many scriptures that validate a Pre Tribulation rapture of the church; here is yet another:

 

Genesis 18:25  King James Version (KJV)

25 That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?

Genesis 18:25 is a universal proof text that God will never judge the sheep with the goats, the wheat with the tares, or the righteous with the wicked.

Fiery Trials Build You Up In The Faith

Fiery Trials

 

Read: James 1:2-12
Bible in a Year: Ecclesiastes 7-9; 2 Corinthians 13

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds.—James 1:2

Fire can be one of the worst enemies of trees. But it can also be helpful. Experts say that small, frequent fires called “cool” fires clean the forest floor of dead leaves and branches but don’t destroy the trees. They leave behind ashes, which are perfect for seeds to grow in. Surprisingly, low-intensity fires are necessary for healthy growth of trees.

Similarly, trials—pictured as fire in the Bible—are necessary for our spiritual health and growth (1 Peter 1:7; 4:12). James wrote, “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything” (James 1:2-4).

It is in the season of trial that God’s purposes are often realized, for there the conditions are right for us to grow into spiritual maturity. This growth not only equips us for living, but it also enables us to more accurately reflect Jesus to a world that desperately needs Him.

In the hands of our Father, our trials can achieve His purposes for our good and for His honor. They can shape us into the likeness of His Son. —Bill Crowder

Father, teach me to trust You for the strength to endure difficulties and the faith to wait for Your good purposes to be accomplished in me.
Encourage others! Go to odb.org and share what God taught you through a challenging time.

Faith is seeing God in the dark and in the light.

 INSIGHT: James, the half-brother of Jesus, believed that Christ was the Messiah after witnessing His resurrection from the dead. James led the early church as a “Messianic Jew,” a term referring to someone who has been reared in the traditions of Judaism and who acknowledges Jesus as the Messiah. In today’s reading, James says that a positive attitude toward trials—“consider it pure joy . . . whenever you face trials of many kinds” (1:2)—is central to the Christian life. Trials are beneficial because they produce positive character change through the power of God.

Putin Warns Trump ‘New World Order Out To Get You’

Trump has no allegiance to the KGB, Vladimir Putin and dirty Kremlin politics, yet it appears that Putin and Trump have found political glue in their mutual antipathy of the New World Order.  Every president following Ronald Reagan in the United States has been a supporter of the New World Order.  Hillary Clinton is their next choice and they will do all they can to place her in the Oval Office.  I believe the Clinton Foundation probably has cash that came laundered through the NWO.

Blessings, Pastor Steve

 

Putin Warns Trump ‘New World Order Out To Get You’

Posted on June 19, 2016 by Baxter Dmitry in News, World // Comments (72)

Brave Vladimir Putin has delivered a scathing attack on the New World Order and warned Donald Trump that the ‘secret cabal’ have him ‘in their crosshairs.’

‘There is a secret cabal above the elected rulers of your country, they have very clear goals for the next couple of years…They do not want you to be President, and they are conspiring against you.‘

President Putin hasn’t endorsed Trump, but any enemy of the New World Order is a friend of the Russian President’s, and he had a few words of warning to share with Trump when they spoke on the phone on Friday.

Putin warned Trump to expect ‘dirty tricks like we’ve already seen, and much worse‘ according to a Kremlin source, warning him that elite members of the GOP, his own party, are currently plotting against him and will attempt to take away his nomination for the presidency.

‘The elites will do whatever it takes to stop you thwarting them,’ Putin said, according to sources, hinting at a possible assassination plot should Trump’s campaign continue gaining momentum.

 

 

It is understood that Putin said if the exit polls differed from the official results by so wide a margin in a Russian election, the Western media would be shouting about election fraud and corruption.

Asked about the presumptive Republican nominee for president while taking questions at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum, Putin again described Trump as a “flamboyant” or “colorful” man, using a Russian word – “яркий” – that can be translated in different ways, from gaudy to striking to dazzling.

“But here’s where I will pay close attention, and where I exactly welcome and where on the contrary I don’t see anything bad: Mr Trump has declared that he’s ready for the full restoration of Russian-American relations. Is there anything bad there? We all welcome this, don’t you?”

In an annual press conference with his countrymen last April, Putin expressed skepticism about the American electoral process, which he believes is corrupt – elite family clans taking turns occupying the White House. He also hinted how he personally saw Hillary Clinton.

‘First there was Bush senior in power, then Bush junior. [Bill] Clinton was [U.S. President] two times in a row, now his wife has ambitions. Again, the family might stay in power. As they say in Russia, a husband and a wife are the same Satan.’

Neither side of the political establishment want Trump anywhere near the White House. The mainstream media are vilifying him. In short, the sock puppets of the New World Order are united against him. They have a lot to lose if somebody who isn’t playing by their rules takes control.

It is not known if Putin received this information from Guccifer, the anti-Illuminati hacker who accessed Hillary Clinton’s emails, or whether the inside information came from another source. What is clear however is that Putin has been vocal about destroying the New World Order’s chokehold over global economics and geopolitics, and he is determined to see this through.

In Russia there is an old saying that roughly translates as ‘If you don’t understand the past, you won’t be able to understand the present, or shape the future.’ Putin lives by this saying. According to sources he has been studying the history of the New World Order so he can understand their plans and destroy the invasive organisation before its roots and branches spread too far and wide around the world and it becomes too late.
