  • Who Would Be The Best Presidential Candidate For Energy Companies?

    02/08/2016 5:10:23 PM PST · 6 of 6
    JesusIsLord to Don Corleone

    If by energy the author means oil, the answer is “Bush”. The Bush family has been in bed with Saudi and Texas oil interests since forever. I can’t believe Jeb will be any different from his dad and brother in this regard. Saudis were responsible for 911. What was W’s response to his Saudi friends after 911? Crickets.

    And when it came time to walk his talk on the most important issues in this election, Cruz blinked.

    The reality is that all men have shortcomings.

    The first president I voted for was Jimmy Carter. I did so because Jimmy made it publically known that he was a "born-again" Christian. It turned out that Jimmy put the nation's ungodly values over God's. I regret voting for Carter. I want a man in office who will put God's priorities over the nation's. I think Cruz is that man.

    I'm still praying about who to support but for now it is Cruz.

    You've all hitched your wagon to a guy that was a liberal lefty less than a year ago..

    Your point is well taken and I'm in full agreement. I don't trust Trump. There was a time when he supported: abortion, gay marriage, and the Clintons. He now says he's changed his views. He's an arrogant man.

    The following is from the Harbingers:


    Based on Isaiah 9:10, - "The bricks have fallen, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will plant cedars in their place," the northern 10 Tribes of Israel refused to repent after they were struck by the Assyrians - which was a warning from the Lord. Instead of listening to the alarm, of turning back, and humbling themselves in repentance, they boasted of their resolve, that they would rebuild stronger and better than before. They ignored the warning and rejected the call to return. They defied it. Sadly, their defiance led to the nation's total destruction years later. The ancient prophecy forms the key to the nine harbingers of judgment, which are given to a nation in danger of judgment - each of which have reappeared on American soil - marking America as the nation in danger of judgment.

    Trump's mantra' "Make America Great Again", could be interpreted as another attempt by a politician to "fix America" without God's blessing. We have made abortion and desecration of marriage the law of the land. Strong will and arrogance will not fix our problems. WWII Germany is a testament to this fact. We've in trouble and I don't believe Trump understands why we're in trouble.

    Ted Cruz is not perfect but I believe he understands that we need to receive God's blessing to fix this nation.

  • "Lunar" Sabbath

    JesusIsLord to roamer_1
    The same Yeshua who told us to keep Torah, and to do the commandments? .

    The law is holy. The Torah is holy. Men are not.

    The following excerpts from Trumpet Ministries offer a fair explanation to the seeming contradictory views of Yeshua and Paul:

    If we really believe that the writings of the Apostle Paul are the inerrant Word of God, then we must accept the fact that we are under no part of the Law of Moses.

    How, then, do we reconcile the statements of the Lord Jesus concerning the Law? "I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished."

    And what does Paul means when he says "the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith; now that faith has come, we are no longer under the supervision of the law?

    It sounds like the Lord Jesus is saying the Law is still in force. It sounds like Paul is saying the Law has been done away with.

    Can these two apparently contradictory statements be reconciled. If so, how?

    In the seventh chapter of the Book of Romans, Paul tells us that the Law of Moses, instead of guiding him into righteousness, caused sin to come to life in him. He wanted to obey the law but his sinful nature caused him to disobey the Law.

    Then, in the eighth chapter, Paul explains the relationship of the Law to our salvation in Christ. Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, (Romans 8:1)

    Paul is addressing Jews, telling them that they can look up from the scroll of the Law and put their faith in Jesus, and yet be without condemnation. The righteousness they were seeking under the Law is given to them through Christ.

    It is difficult for Gentiles to understand the text of the New Testament because we do not realize how important the Law was to the Jews. After all, the large church in Jerusalem under Pastor James comprised thousands of Christian Jews, all keeping the Law of Moses. Paul's epistles reflect his continuing struggle to persuade the Jews to turn from the Law to Christ. Our misunderstanding of Paul's reasoning have caused us to believe Paul was saying now that we have faith in Christ we do not have to live righteously. Actually Paul was teaching now that we have faith in Christ we do not have to keep the Law of Moses. A vast and significant difference. A misunderstanding of this difference has produced moral chaos in the Christian churches and has made Paul's writings appear to contradict themselves.

    Because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. (Romans 8:2) The law of the Spirit of life is the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit Himself is our Law, under the new covenant. The law of sin and death is explained in the preceding chapter. It is the interaction of the Law of Moses and our sinful nature. The Law of Moses condemns the actions of our sinful nature, thus producing death in us.

    Paul is saying the law of the Spirit of life sets us free from the death produced by the interaction of the Law of Moses and our sinful nature. Remember, Paul's motive in writing such statements is to convince Jews ("I speak to those who know the Law") that the salvation that is in Christ is superior to the Law of Moses.

  • "Lunar" Sabbath

    01/24/2016 1:21:26 PM PST · 8 of 19
    JesusIsLord to Phinneous
    The following gives the Apostle Paul's perspective (the Christian perspective) on the Sabbath and other Jewish traditions.

    "Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ. Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you. Such a person also goes into great detail about what they have seen; they are puffed up with idle notions by their unspiritual mind. They have lost connection with the head, from whom the whole body, supported and held together by its ligaments and sinews, grows as God causes it to grow.

    Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules: "Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!"? These rules, which have to do with things that are all destined to perish with use, are based on merely human commands and teachings. Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom, with their self-imposed worship, their false humility and their harsh treatment of the body, but they lack any value in restraining sensual indulgence." - Colossians 2:16-23

    My takeaway from Paul's teaching is this - when "tradition, rules or culture" become your God or your Way - you are missing it.

    Yeshua said, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No man comes to the Father (Abba) but through Me! This is the essence of Christianity.

    Don't be surprised to see the barber patron shooters arrested for using excessive force or for shooting when the criminals were exiting the scene. The argument will be, "since the criminals were exiting, they no longer posed a threat." Then there's the civil court, where the deceased parents can sue for big bucks for the death of their child.

    Our government makes it very difficult to defend ourselves.

    Remember Bernhard Goetz. "He shot four young men when they tried to mug him on a New York City Subway in 1984. He fired five shots, seriously wounding all four men. THE GOVERNMENT CHARGED HIM with attempted murder, assault, reckless endangerment, and several firearms offenses. A jury found guilty carrying an unlicensed firearm, for which he served eight months of a one-year sentence. In 1996, one of the shot men, who had been left paraplegic and brain damaged, obtained a civil judgment of $43 million against Goetz ." - (From Wiki)

    Well, of course. However, "Apostolic Tradition" doesn't come out of a hat.

    Hopefully, we agree that when a tradition, any tradition, contradicts Jesus' words/teaching, that tradition is false. When we hear the Pope or his theologians contradicting Jesus' words and gospel in general, we must say the teaching of those men is false!

    Another way of saying this: when Apostolic Tradition is in agreement with the NT and particularly the gospels, we can say Apostolic Tradition is true. When Apostolic Tradition conflicts or contradicts with the NT and particularly the gospels, we MUST SAY that Apostolic Tradition is false.

    Regarding the subject at hand, is the Pope speaking Ex Cathedra - or not? This is critical.

    My source for criticism is the National Catholic Register article, which the post is based on. When we read, "But the question remains: How can Jews be saved if they do not accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior? The document tries to square that circle by stating it remains "an unfathomable divine mystery" how the Jews can attain salvation "without confessing Christ explicitly."

    This position/teaching is at best confusing and at worst a lie! Satan is the author of confusion and Lord knows, we are hearing mixed messages coming out of Rome.

    Go against Israel, then suffer the consequences. Align with Israel, and the trajectory changes.

    Are you suggesting that preaching the gospel to Jews is "going against Israel" or do you mean something else?

    A core tenet of Christianity is proclaiming the gospel (good news), that Messiah came, died for mankind's sins and will come again. To say that Christians are against Israel because they share Yeshua is nonsense. If you love someone, you tell them the truth in love. If that love is rejected or not believed, you continue loving and praying for that person but also respect their free will. Parents with adult children understand this principal.

    In a free society, we need the right to say what we believe to other people. Without saying, any discourse should be civil and without threats of beheading.

    That the Jews.... stood at Sinai and heard the Voice of G-d is known because they were there. They never forgot. They passed it on to all their descendants in an unbroken line. Unlike so many chrstians, who believe in G-d because the Bible tells them to, they believe in the Bible because G-d told them to.

    What you believe concerning Christians is not true. Jews.... walked with Yeshua Messiah and heard and saw in Him - God. They witnessed His life personally. They never forgot what they witnessed. They proclaimed their witness, which was also recorded, and passed it on to all their spiritual descendants in an unbroken line. I am one of their spiritual descendants. I believe their report and equally important, I believe what my heart tells me concerning Jesus. Jesus is Messiah revealed in both OT and NT and in my heart.

    In fact they (Christians) spend their entire lifetimes obeying commandments and praying and hoping that they don't go to hell when they die, because they can never be sure.

    This is not true. Christians believe that Yeshua and not the Commandments are the way of salvation. Our hope is in the finished work of Yeshua as reparation for sin and reconciliation to Abba. If there are so-called Christians teaching otherwise, they are denying Christ.

    Zionist Conspirator - If a man is set on believing a certain way, no amount of persuasion or academic proof will sway him. This is evidenced in history by blind allegiance to Nazism, Communism, Islam and other belief systems - all of which are false.

    I believe you've closed yourself to any argument favoring Christianity so I won't try to persuade you otherwise.

    Theology aside, I'm going to tell you who Yeshua is to me personally. I grew up a broken young man. An absentee father contributed greatly to that brokenness. I was a follower of the crowd, my instincts and my desires. If anything, Jesus was a distant, impersonal and at best a historic figure. My path, a path of self, was unsustainable. I had become a reveler, drunk, drug addict and whoremonger.

    There came a day when I came to the end of myself and confessed to a Christian that I was a broken man. He prayed with me and that began a journey with Jesus, which has brought me to now. My Redeemer lives because He lives in me. I have experienced the power of the Holy Spirit. When I read scripture, both OT and NT, it resonates with Messiah and the power of His Word. I have experienced the same Jesus and Holy Spirit as they are witnessed in scripture.

    We could argue all day about the validity of Jesus and the NT so I'll leave you with this. When I was at my lowest point in life, Jesus showed up and saved me. My guess is that there are many in this forum who've experienced the same Jesus!

    I bid you Shalom!

    Rabbi Mendel Kessin offers an interesting perspective on our upcoming election and its actors. His condescending view of Christianity as a force used by God to combat paganism was to be expected. Him looking forward to Messiah is valid. However, like many Jews and Gentiles, he will likely and ignorantly embrace the anti-Christ seeing he's blind to recognizing Yeshua, who is the Messiah.

    Jews are generally know as being smart and bright. Now I must ask, when you have Rabbis like Mendel Kessin calling out Obama and Hillary - how is it that the vast majority of Jews in America support the godless Democrat party?

    Could it be that the blindness that affects our ability to recognize Messiah affects other areas of our understanding?

    Pray for Israel to call on the name of Yeshua. They will prosper who bless her.

    Francis seriously needs a church refresher!!!

    In 1094 or 1095, Alexios I Komnenos, the Byzantine emperor, sent to the pope, Urban II, and asked for aid from the west against the Seljuq Turks, who taken nearly all of Asia Minor from him. At the council of Clermont, Urban addressed a great crowd and urged all to go to the aid of the Greeks and to recover Palestine from the rule of the Muslims. The following excerpts form Urban II's speech and admonition to Crusade:

    "Most beloved brethren: Urged by necessity, I, Urban, by the permission of God chief bishop and prelate over the whole world, have come into these parts as an ambassador with a divine admonition to you, the servants of God. I hoped to find you as faithful and as zealous in the service of God as I had supposed you to be. But if there is in you any deformity or crookedness contrary to God's law, with divine help I will do my best to remove it. For God has put you as stewards over his family to minister to it. Happy indeed will you be if he finds you faithful in your stewardship. You are called shepherds; see that you do not act as hirelings. But be true shepherds, with your crooks always in your hands. Do not go to sleep, but guard on all sides the flock committed to you. For if through your carelessness or negligence a wolf carries away one of your sheep, you will surely lose the reward laid up for you with God.

    "Although, O sons of God, you have promised more firmly than ever to keep the peace among yourselves and to preserve the rights of the church, there remains still an important work for you to do. Freshly quickened by the divine correction, you must apply the strength of your righteousness to another matter which concerns you as well as God. For your brethren who live in the east are in urgent need of your help, and you must hasten to give them the aid which has often been promised them. For, as the most of you have heard, the Turks and Arabs have attacked them and have conquered the territory of Romania [the Greek empire] as far west as the shore of the Mediterranean and the Hellespont, which is called the Arm of St. George. They have occupied more and more of the lands of those Christians, and have overcome them in seven battles. They have killed and captured many, and have destroyed the churches and devastated the empire. If you permit them to continue thus for awhile with impurity, the faithful of God will be much more widely attacked by them. On this account I, or rather the Lord, beseech you as Christ's heralds to publish this everywhere and to persuade all people of whatever rank, foot-soldiers and knights, poor and rich, to carry aid promptly to those Christians and to destroy that vile race from the lands of our friends. I say this to those who are present, it meant also for those who are absent. Moreover, Christ commands it.

    "All who die by the way, whether by land or by sea, or in battle against the pagans, shall have immediate remission of sins. This I grant them through the power of God with which I am invested. O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ! With what reproaches will the Lord overwhelm us if you do not aid those who, with us, profess the Christian religion! Let those who have been accustomed unjustly to wage private warfare against the faithful now go against the infidels and end with victory this war which should have been begun long ago. Let those who for a long time, have been robbers, now become knights. Let those who have been fighting against their brothers and relatives now fight in a proper way against the barbarians. Let those who have been serving as mercenaries for small pay now obtain the eternal reward. Let those who have been wearing themselves out in both body and soul now work for a double honor. Behold! on this side will be the sorrowful and poor, on that, the rich; on this side, the enemies of the Lord, on that, his friends. Let those who go not put off the journey, but rent their lands and collect money for their expenses; and as soon as winter is over and spring comes, let hem eagerly set out on the way with God as their guide."

    No Mr. Kasich. We cannot tolerate people who believe they have the right to tax, torture, imprison, enslave and kill people who are not Muslim.

    Islam is as bad if not worse than Nazism! It should be eradicated from this earth!

    Where did the money go? Why aren't the bond administrators and those who spent the money being audited? Why isn't the AG investigating for maleficence? Why doesn't anyone in government go to jail?

    Oh I forgot - we have an AG Democrat who won't investigate Democrat criminals and thugs.

    There was a time in French history when the little people had had enough. Our untouchable and criminal "ruling class" reminds me of the French aristocracy before their revolution. As I recall, it didn't end well for French "ruling class".

  • What Is Meant by the "Sacrifice of Praise" in Scripture?"

    JesusIsLord to Salvation

    Earthly fathers who love their children do not want their love reciprocated from a sense of obligation. How much more our heavenly Father? God's order is this: the Father loved us first as demonstrated in the giving of His Son for our salvation. Once received, the love of the Father can then be shed abroad from our heart. "And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love." Romans 5:5

    If a man or woman understands and receives the love of Jesus in their life, they will, out of the abundance of their heart, desire to love and worship the One who first loved them. If the gospel is merely "religion" and "obligation" to a person, there will be no agape love or true worship in that person .

    John 4: 19-26: "Sir, "the woman said, "I can see that you are a prophet. Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem." "Woman," Jesus replied, "believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth." The woman said, "I know that Messiah" (called Christ) "is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us." Then Jesus declared, "I, the one speaking to you - I am he."

    I assume that was a rhetorical question....

    It was not. There is so much corruption and evil in the Decmocrat party. Democrats and their media lackeys are unashamedly anti-American, anti-Constitution and anti-Christian.

    I don't understand why Conservative Republicans aren't using media appearance and political ads to expose the blatant evil and crime of the Democrats? Conservatives dealing with Democrats reminds me of a man taking a knife to a gunfight. I mean, Conservative seem unwilling to go to the mat and stay on message to take down Democrats. We have much to learn from Democrats in terms communicating propaganda. They're much better at it. What are conservative politicians afraid of? Offending liberals?

    I'm tired of hearing the rantings of conservatives like Trey Gowdy, Jason Chaffetz and others only to realize they are only - rantings.

    I want to see people go to jail and hung for treason!

    Blacks are 13.2% of the U.S. population. 68% of NFL players are black.

    Blacks and race baiting media should have ZERO complaints about the NFL.

    Blacks should be thankful that affirmative action doesn't apply to professional sports.
