    Seven months removed from prison, former U.S. Rep. William Jefferson of Louisiana is trying to undo a $392,000 civil judgment for stockholders in a defunct telecommunications company that figured into his criminal case. He's asked a federal judge in Louisville, Ky., to reverse the order that he pay the money to iGate Inc. investors. The reason: The convictions on which the civil award rested have been overturned. "Thus, no basis any longer exist[s] on which this court may maintain its judgment and order," Jefferson's motion says.The lawsuit was filed 11 years ago by Daniel Cadle of Newton Falls, Ohio, on...
  • The Fate Of The nations...Messianic Psalms pt17

    The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever. Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight. Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.(Psalm 9 :17-20)Many people miss the full import of the Psalms of the Bible, because they limit their understanding of them to being divine poetry, or as wisdom literature. Some correctly go further and realize that the...
  • The Heathen Have Dug a Pit...Messianic Psalms pt 16

    The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken. The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah. (Psalm 9:14-15)The ninth Psalm is an eschatological revelation. The Psalmist ,by the Holy Spirit celebrates the coming of the LORD . At his Arrival, the united international enemies of Israel fall, they are turned back and routed! They had besieged her in their fury, but God rebukes them,”putting out their name” forever! The LORD comes...
  • Consider My Trouble...Messianic Psalms pt 16

    Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death: That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.(Psalm 9:13-14)Psalm 9 is an eschatological psalm. It describes the coming of the Lord to this earth to deliver a besieged people, Israel, surrounded by menacing enemies on the verge of destroying her. The Psalmist reveals that Israel’s enemies will be routed by the very presence of the Lord, the perousia spoken...
  • When He Makes Inquisition For Blood....Messianic Psalms pt 14

    Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings. When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.(Psalm 9:11-12)The message of Psalm 9, is the coming of the Lord. He comes to deliver Israel from the enemies who besiege her in the last days. He comes to Judge the world in righteousness. He comes to put an end to the wanton destruction of the enemy. Here we see another of the reasons the Lord comes again, He comes as the judge to to make inquisition for...
  • The People Imagine A Vain Thing...Messianic Psalms pt 5

    Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision. (Psalm 2:1-4)Psalm One and Psalm Two go together. Psalm one looks at an individual over against the world he lives in. The Individual is separated inwardly, he thinks differently because he has a different source, the Law of God. He meditates on...
  • The Doctrine of Balaam...Balaam pt 11

    Nevertheless I have a few things against you, for you have there those who hold to the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit fornication… (Rev 2:14)By the end of the fourth ‘parable’ of Balaam, both he and Balak the king were fully aware of God’s purposes for Israel. The utter impossibility of using any kind of divination against Israel was now obvious to the badly shaken king and to the seer also – whose eyes God had opened. They would go...
  • Balaam And The End... Balaam pt 1

    And the children of Israel set forward, and pitched in the plains of Moab on this side Jordan by Jericho. And Balak the son of Zippor saw all that Israel had done to the Amorites. And Moab was sore afraid of the people, because they were many: and Moab was distressed because of the children of Israel. And Moab said unto the elders of Midian, Now shall this company lick up all that are round about us, as the ox licketh up the grass of the field. And Balak the son of Zippor was king of the Moabites at that...
  • Ray Vasser pat 2 "Unite and Conquer"

    01/18/2018 1:31:46 PM PST · by pastorbillrandles · 1 replies
    We are seeing, in the name of human rights, an all out assault on the unity of society as the exploitation of social distinctions are on rise. You see one might think the enemy of our souls would use the “old divide and conquer” motive. Not so fast! It is now to “unite and conquer.” One of the marks of the last days is division according to the Words of Jesus that is found in Matthew 10:34-39 He said “…I did not come to bring peace, but a sword…to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother…a...

    How to Influence the Way the Lord Will Judge Us Msgr. Charles Pope • November 13, 2017 • This is the seventh in a series of articles on the Four Last Things: Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell.Works of Mercy, Pieter Bruegel In the past several posts, we have been considering the judgment that awaits us. Not only must we be ready in the ways we have described, but should allow our looming judgment to help our attitude today.Scripture says, Always speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the Law that gives freedom. For judgment...

    On the Sin of Rash Judgment, as Seen in a Commercial Msgr. Charles Pope • August 18, 2017 • One of the most commonly committed—yet least often confessed—sins, is that of rash judgment. The commercial below humorously depicts the sin and how wrong we can sometimes be.In reality, the sin is not often humorous and can lead us to some very dark places. On account of rash judgments, we may harbor grudges, resentments, fears, and unjust anger. We may allow it to foster pride, feeling ourselves superior to others. We may even seek revenge based on misinformation or as...

And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.(Revelation 9:13-15)The area of the nation now known of as Iraq, has gone by the names of Mesopotamia, Assyria, Babylon, Shinar, Ninevah and Sumer in ancient times. It has...
  • On the Passing of a Pornographer

    On the fall of a Pornographer; But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.(Matthew 18:6)Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art...

    Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. (Revelation 9:14-15)The Source of the Euphrates River is in the nation now known as Turkey, and from the mountains of what was once known as Armenia. Armenia was the first Gentile nation to officially accept Christianity, in the second century, and maintained a Christian presence even through the dark years...

    Can We Influence How the Lord will Judge Us? Msgr. Charles Pope • September 17, 2017 • The readings from Mass for the 24th Sunday of the Year were a continuation from the previous Sunday, when our Lord taught us of the requirement that we correct one another. Yesterday’s readings remind us that our correction must be done with mercy and humility. Failing to correct an erring or sinning brother is not mercy at all, but correcting in a harsh or mean-spirited way falls short as well.As an extended meditation on yesterday’s Gospel let’s consider a kind of “mathematics”...

    On the Need to Be More Urgent in Preparing for Final Judgment Msgr. Charles Pope • May 1, 2016 • At every funeral I celebrate, I spend a good portion of the sermon urging everyone, including myself, to be more intent on preparing for death and judgement. I remind the assembled of Jesus’ numerous parables on this theme. I remind them that no one loves them more than does Jesus, and yet no one issued more warnings of judgment and Hell than He did. I do this at funerals because the overwhelming majority of people I see there do...
  • The Last Great Apostasy...the West in prophecy pt 7

    Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so...
  • The Kings Of The Earth and Their Rulers...the west in prophecy 5

    Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.(Psalm 2:1-3)Psalm 2 is as apt a description as any I have seen in scripture, of what has happened to the Western World over the pas 100 years. The Psalmist asks two very pertinent questions; “Why are the nations of the world in an uproar?”“Why do the peoples imagine a vain thing?” or “Why are...
