Dr. Billy Graham will “Lie in Honor in U.S. Capitol Rotunda” on Wednesday, February 28, and Thursday, March 1.
Former President Barack Obama found himself in hot water with his progressive constituency last week by a tweet honoring the late Reverend Billy Graham. Headline:
“Obama faces progressive backlash for tweet honoring the late Rev. Billy Graham,” the Washington Times headlined.
Retweeting Obama, Christian Carter appeared to think that the former president was swimming against the tide: “Wasn’t really feeling the love and guidance… He may have done well by many people, but the man also hurt countless individuals in the LGBT and other communities. We don’t need to celebrate his death, the same as we don’t need to celebrate his life.”
Kaylara, a self-professed pagan, had some more inept sagacity to share on Obama’s tweet: “Nope. He spent decades demonizing my religion and directing hatred at us as well as the LGBTQ community. He gave hope and guidance to horrible people on how to be more horrible and bilked poor people to enrich himself, and taught his kids that too.”
The ‘progressive backlash’ aimed at former homosexual marriage and transgender bathroom champion President Barack Obama is that homosexuals transitioned from a ‘libertarian’ position in 2008 – framed as “Do us a favor, and let us live our lives in the privacy of our homes” – to a ‘totalitarian’ stance during Obama’s American experiment, 2009-2017, resulting in “Christian bakers, Christian photographers, and Christian retreat centers will take part in our weddings or be bankrupted.” Prayerfully, this was their last gasp.
If not for Divine Intervention in 2016, in the unwonted form of Donald J. Trump, fascism would well be on its way to a centurial run under the tutelage of a Hillary Clinton presidential victory. The dog whistle sent from her predicted electoral triumph promised that “Christians will sanction and ceremonialize same-sex weddings or spend time in jail.” Boy, did we dodge a bullet.
Progressive liberals are relentless, and brazen. Bolstered by their ‘Amen Corner’ – the cultural mountains of influence of America: public education, higher learning, newsrooms, sports, the Courts, the Fortune 500, Big business, Hollywood, and medicine – these Leftist crusaders do still live to fight another day.
A telling example, Juan Williams authored an opinion piece in The Hill, “Evangelicals sell their souls for Trump.” [February 19, 2018]
My friend Rev. Dr. Laurence White’s response should be planted deep into the soil of the about 65M-80M Evangelical, and 40M Pro-Life Catholic, Christian constituency:
“Mr. Williams misses the point, although I was pleasantly surprised by his righteous indignation over sexual faithfulness between husband and wife in marriage. A political candidate is chosen for his position on the issues not his/her personal piety. Neither Donald nor Hillary are practicing Christians. Their professions of faith are superficial at best and consistently inconsistent with their lifestyles. To assert the moral superiority of Hillary over Donald is ridiculous and irrelevant. Moral indignation in politics is almost always selective – my guy is a saint and your guy is the devil. Williams is guilty of the same hypocrisy that he is attacking in his article. An election is not a canonization. The most consistent Christian in the oval office in modern times was Jimmy Carter. His presidency was a disaster. At the same time, despite his commitment to the Lord of Life who established the family, he supported abortion and the destruction of marriage. Donald Trump, on the other hand, has proven to be the most pro-life, pro-family president since Ronald Reagan. I hope and pray that more authentic Christians will run for office. But even then there will still be no perfect candidates. In the meantime our God has a remarkable way of using flawed instruments to accomplish His purpose.”
Joseph Boot comes through with the gist of the issue: “First, culture is the public manifestation of the religious faith commitment of a people (be it Islamic, Christian, humanistic, etc…) so in fact there is no avoiding religious ‘civilization’ and ‘culture’ where any given worldview predominates. That is to say, there is no such thing as a neutral culture. ‘Multiculturalism’ is therefore just a contemporary term for polytheism (many gods). But no society can be governed by more than one ultimate source of authority without provoking civil conflict and social chaos. This is for the simple reason that Sharia law is not equal to English Common Law; nor is the Hindu caste system equal to the Western legal tradition of equality before the law. Each system has a different source of sovereignty and thereby a different God or ‘god’ behind them.”
America cannot function when both Secularism and Christianity “are perceived and treated as equally ultimate – the result of such irrationality can only be social suicide and judicial chaos.”
“Clearly someone’s vision of law and justice is going to be legislated and someone’s vision of ‘love’ endorsed by the state – an ‘establishment orthodoxy’ that opposes rival orders is inescapable.”
About 250 pastors are running for local office in 2018: city council, school board, parks and recreation, etc. Thank God that Gideons and Rahabs are now taking up a place in the front ranks of the battle for the Soul of America.

Is Hillary Clinton an ‘enemy’ of religious liberty?
According to Sean Hannity of Fox News, “Journalism is dead.” I could not agree more. Listen to the four following current news stories that were not only distorted, but they reported the EXACT OPPOSITE of the facts of the matter. It has never been more important for Americans who desire the truth and want to be correctly informed, to be sure of their news source(s). For instance, the large majority of Americans are against abortion and the sixty million babies who have been murdered since Roe verses Wade. You would never know this, however, from the mainstream media. Very few objectively report the truth, as can be seen in the following videos. The second video reveals how former President Barack Obama, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Department of Justice were in collusion to oppose Donald Trump’s running for the presidency. The Trump dossier and unconstitutional political espionage used by the previous administration, makes Watergate look like child’s play in comparison. The so called Donald Trump Russian Collusion was simply a massive smokescreen to cover up the real agenda of the left wing Deep State in our nation:
There comes a moment in every nation, where the people decide WHAT their country will be… WHO will write their legacy… and WHICH direction they will turn… towards or away from freedom. In our nation, it IS that Tipping Point. It is OUR time to accept the responsibility given to us by our forefathers, and turn America towards liberty… or lose it forever.

Read: Philippians 2:5–11 | Bible in a Year: Genesis 18–19; Matthew 6:1–18
At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth. Philippians 2:10
Cleopatra, Galileo, Shakespeare, Elvis, Pelé. They are all so well known that they need only one name to be recognized. They have remained prominent in history because of who they were and what they did. But there is another name that stands far above these or any other name!
Before the Son of God was born into this world, the angel told Mary and Joseph to name Him Jesus because “he will save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21), and “he . . . will be called the Son of the Most High” (Luke 1:32). Jesus didn’t come as a celebrity but as a servant who humbled Himself and died on the cross so that anyone who receives Him can be forgiven and freed from the power of sin.
Jesus Christ is not valued at all until He is valued above all. Augustine
The apostle Paul wrote, “God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9–11).
In our times of greatest joy and our deepest need, the name we cling to is Jesus. He will never leave us, and His love will not fail.
Jesus, You are the name above all names, our Savior and Lord. We lift our praise to You as we celebrate Your presence and power in our lives today.
Jesus Christ is not valued at all until He is valued above all. Augustine
By David C. McCasland | See Other Authors
God, who exists eternally in three Persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—has a variety of names that describe His attributes, including Good Shepherd, Lion of Judah, Lamb of God, Prince of Peace, Almighty God, Strong Tower, and Comforter. Yet here in Philippians 2 Jesus is called the “name that is above every name” (v. 9). Paul, the author of Philippians, goes on to say that at the sound of His name “every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth” (v. 10). Why this enthusiastic praise for the name of Jesus? It’s because of who He is, what He left behind, and what He accomplished. Jesus, the Son of God, left the magnificence of heaven and the presence of His Father and humbled Himself by taking on “human likeness” and “becoming obedient to death” (vv. 7–8). Thus humbled, Jesus was “exalted . . . to the highest place” and given the name above all names (v. 9). He died and rose again because of His love for us and is deserving of our praise and the overflowing joy it expresses.
Whom can you tell about Jesus?
Peter Wehner, former President George W. Bush’s speech writer and senior adviser to Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, opined in the New York Times on Sunday, ” Why I Can No Longer Call Myself an Evangelical Republican.”
I don’t know Peter Wehner.
But it’s strange; I would have thought that the final straw for evangelical Wehner might have been his boss, President George W. Bush in England in 2003, equating Jehovah and false god Allah as the same God:
Q Thank you, Mr. President, Mr. Prime Minister. Mr. President, when you talk about peace in the Middle East, you’ve often said that freedom is granted by the Almighty. Some people who share your beliefs don’t believe that Muslims worship the same Almighty. I wonder about your views on that.
And, Mr. Prime Minister, as a man also of faith, I’d like to get your reaction to that.
PRESIDENT BUSH: I do say that freedom is the Almighty’s gift to every person. I also condition it by saying freedom is not America’s gift to the world. It’s much greater than that, of course. And I believe we worship the same God . (11/20/03)
Or as if that weren’t enough, Laura Bush’s deceit and hypocrisy from 2000-2008 — keeping quiet through two presidential campaigns so her husband could be elected and reelected; and misrepresenting her position on same-sex marriage and abortion:
First Lady Supportive of Gay Rights and Abortion Rights — not Michelle Obama, but Laura Bush!
Or Ken Mehlman — former White House Political Director, former Bush/Cheney 2004 Campaign Manager, and former RNC Chairman 2005-2007 — who paraded himself (once he left Washington, DC) as homosexual and led the amicus brief advocating homosexual marriage, in the Obergefell vs. Hodges case, before the Supreme Court in 2015.
Karl Rove and Ken Mehlman framed the BUSH/CHENEY 2004 reelect on “Family Values” as they placed same-sex marriage bans on the ballots in AR, GA, KY, MI, MS, MT, ND, OH, OK, OR, and UT.
Following the Bush 43′ reelection victory we learned that the showcasing of “moral virtue” by the BUSH/CHENEY 04′ campaign was a ruse. Machiavellian to the core, “Political expediency placed above morality and the use of craft and deceit to maintain the authority and carry out the policies of a ruler.”
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee led the Arkansas initiative. He emailed me following the 2004 charade:
“Looking back, we all now know we were played for chumps as we led sincere efforts to pass Constitutional amendments in our states (I led one in 2004 that won by 70%), only to now realize that those running the White House didn’t respect or even agree with the principles involved – just knew it would drive voters to the polls and help turnout and win.”
Or Cindy McCain advocating for homosexual marriage in 2010, after her husband was the Republican presidential nominee in 2008. Why didn’t she say this when her husband was campaigning for President in 2007-2008?
You see the pattern here, one thing they all have in common — like candidate Barack Hussein Obama at the Saddleback Presidential Debate in 2008 — deceit, so as to be elected:
Obama: “I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. Now, for me as a Christian-for me-for me as a Christian, it is also a sacred union. God’s in the mix.”
Warren: “Forty million abortions, at what point does a baby get human rights, in your view?”
Obama: “Well, you know, I think that whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity, you know, is above my pay grade.”
It speaks to character: veracity — “habitual truthfulness”.
As to Peter Wehner, a “NeverTrumper”, he has become so obsessed with Donald Trump that, like a drunk, it has impaired his vision. Wehner cannot see the real crisis, which would be there even if Trump wasn’t, and that’s the reason the New York Times accords him that perch, as a ” dupe of Secularism.”
There is good news; Gideons and Rahabs are beginning to stand.

With Thanksgiving rapidly approaching, I wanted to make sure I took the time to personally write my ACT for America family, and share with them that which I am most thankful for.
1. I’m thankful for our military heroes. With so much attention and praise given to ungrateful athletes who kneel during the National Anthem, I’m thankful for true heroes who risk their lives, leave their families, and in some cases, pay the ultimate price for my freedom. Their sacrifice is one I will never forget, nor take for granted.
2. I’m thankful for our law enforcement officers. The Thin Blue Line is under attack from the mainstream media on a daily basis. Imagine risking your life for someone, only to have them turn around and blame you for almost all of society’s ills. Imagine being tasked with protecting your community from terrorists, only to have some leftist politician like Bill DeBlasio tie your arms behind your back in the name of political correctness. I respect and honor those who serve and protect, unlike the NFL.
3. I’m thankful for you, my fellow grassroots patriot, who prefaces country above self, and volunteers their time and energy to make America a safer place to call home. It is selfless citizens like you, now more than 800,000 of which make up this organization, who are saving this country from self-destruction. ANTIFA, CAIR, the SPLC, etc. none of them stand a chance against our unified grassroots machine. We are too strong, too determined, and love this country far too much to let them succeed.
4. I’m thankful Barack Obama is no longer President. This is one that certainly cannot be overstated. How refreshing it is not to have to listen to our President lecture America about tolerance and “Islamophobia,” after an Islamic terrorist attack. No more James Taylor playing “You’ve Got A Friend,” to combat ISIS. No more praising America’s enemies, or attacking our allies like Israel. I could go on about why I’m so thankful for this, but you’d still be reading this in 2018 if I did.
5. I’m thankful for the fact that I am an American citizen. I dreamed of coming to America when I was living in a bomb shelter as a little girl, but never in a million years ever thought my dream would one day become a reality. I owe more to this country than I can ever repay, but it is through this organization that I can certainly try to repay that debt.
I sincerely wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving, and can’t wait to share with you what we at ACT for America have in store for you in the very near future.
I would like to add one more to Brigitte’s list. I am thankful that Hillary Clinton was not elected as our president. The next time that you feel negative towards our nation, envision where we would be RIGHT NOW if she were elected. Blessings, Pastor Steve
Antifa Rallies Planned in at Least 20 U.S. Cities – Won’t ‘Stop Until This Regime Driven from Power’
November 04 2017
The left-wing, Antifa Refuse Fascism group is planning rallies in at least 20 cities across the United States on Saturday to demand that the duly-elected President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence be “driven from power.”
In a full-page ad in the New York Times on Wednesday, the group advertised its event:
Nov 4 it begins — be there — join with the thousands who will gather in cities and towns across the country. A movement of protests that continue every day and night, growing until we become millions … determined not to stop until this is driven from power.
Newsweek reported on Thursday:
“Refuse fascism,” a nascent protest group with ties to a more explicitly left-wing radical group, “the revolutionary communist party,” doesn’t seem like a typical fit for the left-leaning pages of the paper known as The Gray Lady, but very little has been normal about the Trump era so far, according to organizers.
The regime is destroying the planet by ignoring climate change, they say, and they claim it is turning America into a fascist country through an unprecedented series of executive orders.
“What Trump and his administration are doing could pose an existential threat to humanity,” Andy Zee, a member of the advisory board for Refuse Fascism, told Newsweek in a phone interview.
“We’re in one of the most perilous moments in history right now,” Zee said.
The Refuse Fascism website states:
No! In the name of humanity, we refuse to accept a fascist America! Take to the streets and public squares in cities and towns across the country continuing day after day and night after night — not stopping until our DEMAND is met: This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
A list follows naming what those nightmares are, including discrimination against Muslims and gays, objectivism and harassment of women, and the danger posed by climate change.
The “about” portion of the Refuse Fascism states:
We launched RefuseFascism.org at an emergency meeting at the Great Hall of Cooper Union in NYC on December 19th, 2016. Watched by some 200,000 people on HuffPo’s FaceBookLive, Andy Zee, PZ Myers, Carl Dix, Jeremy Scahill, Imam Ayub Abdul-Baki, Rev. Doris Johnson, Sunsara Taylor, Immortal Technique, and Fran Luck spoke along with messages from Gloria Steinem, Chase Iron Eyes, Isabel Cardenas, and others on the fascist character of the Trump/Pence Regime and called on people to get organized to stop it before it came to power.
But some are saying that the reaction to the planned rallies is overplayed and is being characterized by some conservative websites as the start of a civil war.
The Washington Post reported:
Infowars has warned “Antifa Plans ‘Civil War’ to Overthrow the Government.” The John Birch Society put out two recent videos warning Americans to “stay home and tell your children to do likewise” on Saturday. YouTuber “A Glock Fanboy” notched more than 400,400 views for a clip raising the alarm about “the first day of the revolution or whatnot.”
Time magazine flatly said the claims of an insurrection are: “simply not true.”
There will indeed be anti-Trump rallies in 20 cities around the U.S. on Saturday, from Atlanta to Honolulu, organized by a left-wing political action group called Refuse Fascism whose goal is unseating Trump. But its tactics — including but not limited to a “passionate speak-out with music and participatory art” — are a far cry from violent insurrection.
Nor is it likely that the streets will be teeming with angry mobs: only 990 people have said that they’re attending the demonstration in New York, according to the event’s Facebook group.
Among the at least 20 cities where rallies are set to occur are Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Honolulu, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Seattle.

If you listen to the mainstream media, you would think our nation is falling apart at the seams, and our president is on the verge of impeachment. Well, just what are the facts?
The Trump Economy-
Our economy has taken off.
261,000 jobs were created in October.
24,000 manufacturing jobs were filled at this time.
Unemployment is at a 17 year low.
Consumer confidence is at a 17 year high.
Over one million fewer Americans are relying on food stamps, the best numbers in over 7 years.
The homeowners rate has risen in the last quarter.
More people are in the work force than 7 years ago.
The stock market is doing very well.
Donald Trump has promised to make our economy great two years ago, and that is exactly what has happened.
Rush Limbaugh: Trump Not Getting Enough Credit for Booming Economy
Posted By: admin
on: November 01, 2017
In: All News, Finance, Politics, US News
If you look at the latest round of approval polls for President Donald Trump, you would think we’re looking at one of the least popular presidents of all time. If these polls are to be believed, Trump is spiraling down the drain to some of the worst job approval ratings any president has ever seen. And, to be clear, we fully believe that these polls are (relatively) accurate. Yes, they may be weighted to this degree or that one, but we have no problem believing that the majority of Americans strongly disapprove of Trump’s presidency. Why would they? The mainstream media’s coverage of Trump has been like one long highway car crash since January. Garbage in, garbage out, as they say.
And it is garbage, make no mistake about that.
On his program Tuesday, radio host Rush Limbaugh noted that if Americans were getting the truth about Trump’s presidency and, in particular, its effect on the economy, those poll numbers might look quite a lot different. But Limbaugh argued that Trump is in no way getting the credit he should be getting for the economic boom.
“I’m gonna shoot you straight here,” Limbaugh said. “Donald Trump’s not getting nearly the credit he deserves for the performance of the U.S. economy. You talk about a rebound? I mean, where was it 10 months ago? Where was it a year ago? Where was it during the seven years of Obama? Remember they were trying to tell us that we had to adapt to a new reality, and that is an America in decline? We had to adapt to these things because America’s past had been not real. Our economic heft and our superpower status was largely undeserved.
“But now it was time to pay the piper and find out how the rest of the world – that we have been trampling all over – lives,” he continued. “And Trump, of course, has reversed thinking; he has reversed performance; there is confidence among consumers. They’re spending. Jobs have been created.”
The problem here – in addition to the media’s disdain for Trump – is that the American people have been sold a lie for the last six years that told us that Obama had rescued us from the recession and all of the accompanying crap. Americans didn’t really BUY that, of course – the proof was in last year’s election, if nothing else – but it’s a story the media is sticking to even to this day. And so they can’t exactly turn around and give Trump credit for this huge recovery…because they’ve been telling us the economy recovered long before Trump came into office. It’s fake news on top of fake news.
But numbers don’t lie, and eventually the media’s fiction will catch up to them. Americans are going to start noticing the economic boom with or without the media’s help, and – like every president before him – Trump will get the credit. Oh, the left really doesn’t want that to happen. Sadly for them, there’s nothing they can do about it.
If you remember the Sitcom “Hogan’s Heroes” from a generation ago, then you remember the character played by John Banner: Luftwaffe POW camp guard Sergeant Schultz. His legendary retort about ANYTHING that came up was: “I see nothing, I hear nothing, I know nothing.” Later in the show it was changed to “Nothing, NOTHING!” That is precisely the reply we always hear from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her supporters, The Obama administration, former Attorney General Eric Holder, the rogue element within the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Justice and the State Department, about all of their alleged scandals. Whether it is the Benghazi scandal, or that of the Internal Revenue Service, Gunrunner, Fast and Furious, Quid Pro Quo, the Trump Dossier, the Clinton Foundation and the Uranium One sale to Russia, and a host of others, the Deep State response is always as follows:
Make Counter Allegations
They have the strategy down pat. Hillary Clinton lies like an Afghan carpet, and it comes so natural to her, that one would truly suspect that she could lie and pass the polygraph test while doing so. The rigged system already had her “in” as president of our nation prior to November 8, 2016. Hillary Clinton will find that there is a price to pay on Judgment Day. What Crooked Hillary Clinton does not seem to understand, is that the one true Triune God of the universe is much, much stronger than her despicable agenda and those who attempt to promote it. If Christians will submit to II Chronicles 7:14, and continue to pray for this sin sick nation, then perhaps the Lord of the universe will continue to intervene in our favor.
I truly believe that every person involved in selling uranium (Uranium One) to Russia in exchange for millions of dollars (Quid Pro Quo) should be rightly accused of treason and promptly executed. They make Benedict Arnold look like a “choir boy” in comparison.
Blessings, Pastor Steve <><
Let not your heart be troubled. If you are like me, and occasionally feel that the wicked are skating past justice, you will be blessed by the 37th Psalm. Enjoy…
David urges men to patience and confidence in God, by contrasting the condition of the godly and the wicked
1 Fret not thyself because of evil-doers, Neither be thou envious against them that work unrighteousness. 2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb. 3 Trust in Jehovah, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on his faithfulness. 4 Delight thyself also in Jehovah; And he will give thee the desires of thy heart. 5 Commit thy way unto Jehovah; Trust also in him, and he will bring it to pass. 6 And he will make thy righteousness to go forth as the light, And thy justice as the noon-day.
7 Rest in Jehovah, and wait patiently for him: Fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, Because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. 8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: Fret not thyself, it tendeth only to evil-doing. 9 For evil-doers shall be cut off; But those that wait for Jehovah, they shall inherit the land. 10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: Yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and he shall not be. 11 But the meek shall inherit the land, And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. 12 The wicked plotteth against the just, And gnasheth upon him with his teeth. 13 The Lord will laugh at him; For he seeth that his day is coming. 14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, To cast down the poor and needy, To slay such as are upright in the way. 15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, And their bows shall be broken. 16 Better is a little that the righteous hath Than the abundance of many wicked. 17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken; But Jehovah upholdeth the righteous. 18 Jehovah knoweth the days of the perfect; And their inheritance shall be for ever. 19 They shall not be put to shame in the time of evil; And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. 20 But the wicked shall perish, And the enemies of Jehovah shall be as the fat of lambs: They shall consume; In smoke shall they consume away.
21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again; But the righteous dealeth graciously, and giveth. 22 For such as are blessed of him shall inherit the land; And they that are cursed of him shall be cut off. 23 A man’s goings are established of Jehovah; And he delighteth in his way. 24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; For Jehovah upholdeth him with his hand. 25 I have been young, and now am old; Yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his seed begging bread. 26 All the day long he dealeth graciously, and lendeth; And his seed is blessed. 27 Depart from evil, and do good; And dwell for evermore. 28 For Jehovah loveth justice, And forsaketh not his saints; They are preserved for ever: But the seed of the wicked shall be cut off. 29 The righteous shall inherit the land, And dwell therein for ever. 30 The mouth of the righteous talketh of wisdom, And his tongue speaketh justice. 31 The law of his God is in his heart; None of his steps shall slide. 32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, And seeketh to slay him. 33 Jehovah will not leave him in his hand, Nor condemn him when he is judged.
34 Wait for Jehovah, and keep his way, And he will exalt thee to inherit the land: When the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it. 35 I have seen the wicked in great power, And spreading himself like a green tree in its native soil. 36 But one passed by, and, lo, he was not: Yea, I sought him, but he could not be found. 37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright; For there is a happy end to the man of peace. 38 As for transgressors, they shall be destroyed together; The end of the wicked shall be cut off. 39 But the salvation of the righteous is of Jehovah; He is their stronghold in the time of trouble. 40 And Jehovah helpeth them, and rescueth them; He rescueth them from the wicked, and saveth them, Because they have taken refuge in him.
Psalms 37:1-40 (ASV)
