  • Eating to Live Not Living to Eat

    Bounty and plentitude always carry responsibility and stewardship, both of which we have lost all sense of across the “fruited plain”...

    “For amber waves of grain,
    For purple mountain majesties
    Above the fruited plain!
    America! America!
    God shed his grace on thee”

    So sad to witness the undertaking of transformation of this bounty to a feudalistic, rationing, poor, ignorant society, which is what the “powers that be” wanted all along.

    Congrats you architects of “destiny”... you finally finished raping blind and bound lady liberty. Next comes the demise of all earthly kingdoms by the One Who Sits on the Throne... (let him who reads understand)

    What’s next? Asteroid strike and market crash this year?

    May the Good Lord have mercy on us and them, for they know not they are the architects who are forging their own gallows pole for attempting to destroy God-given liberty, acting as God, attempting against people’s health, life and limb, lying, stealing and murdering and last but NOT least, destroying the Earth.

  • Annihilation or Eternal Punishment?

    I/We, should not follow the teachings of the “Church”, but the teachings of the Word of God. You/we need to study history. Hellfire was a concocted view from the Mother Church (let him who reads understand) to scare or divide potential followers into the Church. Jesuit teaching if you ask me.

    Ecclesiastes states, that “the dead know nothing” Ecclesiastes 9:5, and on the same breath—their memory, that is their consciousness is in an unconscious state, not that we forgot them...

    What “Eternal Fire” represents are the PERMANENT, IRREVERSIBLE consequences of the destruction of the SOUL in the SECOND DEATH in the LAKE OF FIRE, after the SECOND RESURRECTION. The devil knows this, but he wants you to believe the GOD is a stern and unjust judge and Christians believe this lie like the law of gravity. The second is true, but the first is a flat our lie.

    ASHES DO NOT BURN. This is what that means, since the same word use to describe that ‘Hellfire’ in the New Testament by Peter, referring to the destruction of SODOM and GOMORRAH, is the same Greek word used in Revelations.

    My question is.... Is Sodom or Gomorrah still burning? The answer is obvious... it is now under the dead sea and definitely no light show there.

    It never ceases to amaze me how the false, stubborn view of this point remains so prevalent and has such an enchanting grip on its adherents, in spite of the fact that is contradicts so diametrically what God is and respresents, which is LOVE.

    John 3:16 says that “God SO LOVED THE WORLD...”, “so that NONE should PERISH” Perish, mean ‘to expire or be destroyed’ NOT to continue to have ETERNAL LIFE BURNING IN HELL... if this is so, then CHRIST DIED IN VAIN, and we all have by default of our existence “Eternal Life”, whether it be in HEAVEN or HELL.

    The Great White Throne Judgement described in Revelations, refers to the Second Death and the Destruction of the SOUL, or God deleting your consciousness file from His archive, as it where, to illustrate in technological terms.

    Gotta run.... but if any of you need all the pertinent chapter and verses, I would be more than happy to give you more reason to believe, from a Biblical, rather that “Traditional” perspective, that Hellfire does not exist in the popular sense. God is merciful and gives everyone what they ultimately want, to live with Him Eternally, the ONLY source of LIFE. ...or to be unplugged from HIM Permanently and perish.

    Lucifer CANNOT CREATE or SUSTAIN or PERPETUATE Life, like his adherents stubbornly claim and cling to. Lucifer is nothing but a created being, but he is more than happy to deceive you all on this point. He know what is coming to him, but the claimed followers of Yeshua do not. This is a sad thing truly indeed.

    “The people perish for lack of knowledge” and I would add, the prevalence of deception.

    Shalom

    The link in the Onion source hyperlink is the original hoax bill video that is supposedly about legislating funding for an emergency situation involving, at the very least, flesh eating bacteria outbreaks and at the very worst “otherworldly” threats. The you tube link in the comment section is another video relating to a congressman’s questioning of the supposed secret blackout meeting’s topics in question, which is apparently unprecedented for congress to call a preliminary secret meeting prior to legislation of a bill, which is also unconstitutional.

    Can you please share either publicly or by private response, why you are hesitant to just click on a link on this forum? I think they do a pretty good job of shutting out obvious infractions of their sharing policy...
    I can only think of two reasons why you wouldn’t and just making sure I am not ignorant of all possible scenarios.

    Thank you US Navy Vet!! I do subscribe the notion that only the King James Version of the Bible is not doctored by deceivers, who mis-conveyed key portions of the three main strands of the Bible translations to the present common languages, particularly English, during Middle Ages.

    Thanks again for calling me on it. I will only post KJV portions of scripture to retain fidelity to the true meaning of the Inspired Word.

    I still think it gets my point across... need more input on this topic. Thank you for sharing....

    “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in HIGH PLACES” Ephesians 6:12 KJV

    I recommend you watch the following link, regarding the KJV only school of thought:

    amazingdiscoveries.tv/media/125/213-battle-of-the-bibles/

    AND...

    amazingdiscoveries.tv/media/126/214-changing-the-word/

    I am now also studying Hebrew and Greek, for “such a time as this”

    Blessings and Maranatha!!

    I know the mis-informers out there are masters at playing both sides of the coin and rubbing up both sides of an issue to reach a central objective.

    The Bible says in Proverbs 11:14, "For lack of guidance a nation falls, but victory is won through many advisers"... (sad to ponder the clear and present truth behind these words btw), so in essence we can collectively debunk and arrive to the true meaning of the information being propagated out there, whether it be false or true. Nothing is happenstance in this day in age and everything is monitored and weighed carefully as it relates to information. Everything is coldly calculated in other words.... can anyone share some thoughts on this or related topics please my freeper brethren?

    movie may be good... but this is also a great Iron Maiden song! ;)
    my favorite rendition is the original, with the late Paul Di ‘Anno...

    ...sorry, but i couldn’t help had to mention Maiden’s tribute... of course it is not about “Erik” the phantom, but “Eddie” the phantom!

    i was recently laid off and don’t have insurance. i know the deductibles will be outrageous and the quality of care in general will be diminished. that is the natural course of socialized medicine, at a time when i have zero disposable income. oh, btw... jobs, or at least gainful employment, i have noticed are harder to come by. not surprising, eh?

    what a moronic comment, of many, i keep hearing from the left and obama supporters... at least this goon considers the extra $10k a year on his premium as, “disposable” income... many of us will bite the same bullet and we have no such income to dispose of! thanks a lot you ignorant lamus!
    if you are not part of the elite, it will also all go downhill for you dumbo. welcome to the road to serfdom in America!
    i don’t put a lot of thought into my posts anymore... just express my disdain and anger for these left turds. the new normal sucks and the real common sense is considered extreme... and it all came upon us so quickly and many lamuses are still clueless. sad.

  • Fish oil, Omega-3 causes huge increase in risk of prostate cancer

    And there is no mention of the fact that you can get equally beneficial omega 3 from a non-animal source.... Flaxseed Oil... I wonder what the drive-by mass hysteria media can conjure up on that impeccable source. Wouldn’t put it past them to come up with something.

    We’d probably be better served being more concerned with the mercury in the fish oil itself.  I personally alternate between fish oil and flaxseed source omega 3 to make sure I always supplement omega 3 regardless of the source. Omega 3 is also a powerful antioxidant, essential to combatting the big three... heart disease, diabetes and hypertension.

  • The True and Complete Meaning of the "Prayer of Jabez"

    hope_dies_last to imardmd1

    I do understand and agree with your emphasis, although the prosperity gospel didn’t really jump out at me in the comment.

    We are at a point in time where many people realize and see through the facade of material prosperity as being an all in all marker of realization or a sign of God’s blessing. Given the recent instability of the times in this post-modern, lack luster era, many people, christian and non-christian alike, are looking more for purpose and self-fulfillment.

    The fact that the Prayer of Jabez is much more than a simple success formula or the expressed desire for prosperity, is what makes it so fascinating to me. I find it to be more a yearning of the soul for finding one’s true calling and purpose in life according to God’s will.

    We are best served to steer away from any inkling and falsity of a watered-down “name it and claim it” gospel that the loaves and fishes followers pursue to themselves convey to the unfortunate misleading of many.

    doubt that I'll ever achieve the status of a Abraham, Moses, or Jabez.

    I definitely understand where your coming from on this and admire your respect for these patriarchs of old.

    The Bible does not tell us the humanly faults of Jabez, although the prayer itself hints to a moment of need in the life of Jabez. Very seldom do we come to God in this way when things are going well. Typically, when we are right before God, we pray many more intercessary type prayers on behalf of others in need around us, when we know God has our back and the Spirit points us in the way of being prayer warriors in the spiritual battle and we partner with God in breaking strongholds.

    However, we do know Moses and Abraham had their not so modest humanly faults as well. Moses had comitted murder, and was prone to rage that ultimately lead Moses to basicaly fowl up an important messianic typology God had intended at Horeb by striking the rock more than once and by not merely speaking to it.

    We know Abraham succombed to doubting God's promise and it is well documented that he also lied, became drunk and had improper relations, all of which the details are not important to this discussion.

    The point of all this is that although we can agree the work God acheived through these men was monumental, we should not put them on a pedestal and believe that God could not do equally great things, in and through us. No one is worthy. Only God makes one worthy in His calling for His purposes and although the canon of scripture is closed, the Book of Acts in the New Testament does not end like the other books of scripture, but rather remains as an open register or work in progress of the "acts" of Christ's disciples. All of these good works in the advancement of Christ's Kingdom are however faithfully being registered in God's Book of Remembrance according to Malachai 3:16-20.

    The beauty of God's story of redemption, as registered in the Bible, is that God wrought this work by partnering with frail human elements such as us. This is the mystery of redemption when God has called that which isn't, as if it were. God justifies the unjust through faith and God has mercy on whom He will have Mercy irrespective of persons. God is an awesome God and you and I are his most prized piece of work.

    Alex - thank you for your ministration.

    Doubt is definitely a hindrance not only to our spiritual progress, but also to our earthly or physical endeavors.

    I also have stood in awe of Job’s timeless oowords, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him...” Job 13:15. I soon realize how dwarfed my faith is at times in the face of giants, but I am comforted to know that the One who began the good work in me, will also finish it and that are all work in progress. We will always have room to grow.

    I am amazed by how much we receive, when we are willing to share.

    God is good, all the time. :)))

    Thank you for this reminder.

    I have very often said that all good gifts come from above and that all evil that may befall us is the result of the exercise of the unconsecrated free will of individuals, straggling consequences of past actions or in some isolated cases directly from the dark spiritual realm.

    God in His Permissive, not direct, Will may permit these events, by trying our faith, with the sole purpose of furthering our spiritual growth and endurance.

    We often however, and me personally, have made the grievous mistake in the past of believing God has it in for us. There is nothing we can do to make God love us more or make Him love us less.

    God in His Sovereignty tempts no one, but in His permissive will only allows certain undesirable events, whether they be brought on by exterior forces or we bring it upon ourselves, always in His Love and with His perfect intention for us in mind.

    AMEN! God is also calling for reform and the casting away of those hindrances, namely hidden idols or sin that we may still have endeared deep down or have made provision for... it is only when we are willing to let go of these that miracles start to happen.
    Thank you for your prayers.

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
    I have not posted in a while, but yesterday I ran into several mind-blowing verses... no doubt God is working in my present drought and wilderness journey.

    God takes note when we speak of these things and invoke His name into our conversations... and He records them in the Book of Remembrance!!!!

    Please note what the following scripture is saying:

    Malachi 3:16-18:

    “Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another,
    And the Lord listened and heard them;
    So a book of remembrance was written before Him
    For those who fear the Lord
    And who meditate on His name.
    “They shall be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts,
    “On the day that I make them My jewels.
    And I will spare them
    As a man spares his own son who serves him.”
    Then you shall again discern
    Between the righteous and the wicked,
    Between one who serves God
    And one who does not serve Him.”

    Powerful.

    Learning to trust the Lord in troubling times such as this, when unemployed and actively seeking work, is a great opportunity to reinvent oneself and humbly ask for the Lord's guidance and meet the greatest challenge of all... finding rewarding and life-fulfilling work.

    Statistics often show that 70% to 80% percent of folks hate their jobs. I have come to learn in the midst of our current hardships, that it is not as important to have a higher paying, prestigious job, but rather one where you find fulfillment, purpose and joy in the undertaking. My prayer in my quest is now more ambitious than ever... With my heart in hand I now share with you folks, that my strongest desire is now to find such fulfilling work, as well as direction for my life and I sincerely hope and pray you do too!

    I might add that this fulfillment, in and through our labors, does not just relate to our wage-earning labors and our career, but also in our work for the Lord in our churches and in our personal witness work for Christ. We may also way too often be worn out by even the noblest of our labors when we are not laboring in His Strength. We need to pray for God's strength for all our endeavors, as our strength is limited, but God's Might is Infinite.

    I now pray for legacy, permanence and fulfillment not only for my labors down in the plains of Mamre, in the wage-earning worldly toils, but also for my labors in God's vineyard in Jerusalem, Samaria and the ends of the Earth, as those who know the Truth have been commissioned to labor in by Christ himself in Matthew 28:16-20.

    Let us not forsake the one, for doing the other.

    Godspeed Freeper Family!!!
