Friday January 27th – Open Thread

Tomb of the Unknown ChristmasOur Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    Mozart’s 261st birthday, born 27 Jan 1756. A true genius, anticipating at times later greats like Beethoven (if you’re a fan of Beethoven, listen to Mozart’s 40th and 41st symphonies some time).

      Mozart’s 40th (my favorite of his symphonies) has been called “the perfect symphony.” Happy birthday, Wolfie!

        The 40th (which supposedly is nicknamed the “Great” symphony but I never hear anyone simply call it the Great Symphony) was my first real intro to Mozart.

        I remember going to a live performance of the 41st (“Jupiter”) once, and after that thunderous fugue-style finale was finished, there was something like five solid seconds of stunned silence from the audience, with a couple of quietly spoken “wow!”s heard. It blew their hair back. I guess they are used to Mozart being a little more restrained in the Classical era tradition. (Mind you most of that audience had probably heard “Jupiter” before.) That 41st finale is probably his single greatest symphonic movement…but three of the ones from the 40th are right behind it, so overall the 40th gets top prize, at least in my book.

        Today our “classical” (really “Orchestral” is the better term; “classical” is properly a reference to the period from 1750-about 1820, Mozart and Haydn’s era) music writers today write such incoherent, rambling crap. None of them can touch Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, Tchaikovsky, and Dvorak.

    • You are in our prayers. God put you in that situation, just as He has put you in other situations that you have lived though, for His purposes. You did the right thing, or you wouldn’t be here. Put everything in God’s hands at all times.

    Arkansas House Passes Dismemberment Abortion Ban
    January 23, 2017

    This afternoon the Arkansas House of Representatives passed a good, pro-life bill that bans some abortion procedures.

    H.B. 1032 generally prohibits D&E and sharp curettage abortion procedures in which a living, unborn baby is violently dismembered. The bill passed the House Public Health Committee last week. Today it was passed by the entire House of Representatives.

    From here the bill will go to the Arkansas Senate. You can read the text of H.B. 1032 here.
    Below is a breakdown of how the Arkansas House of Representatives voted.

    Sign please if you agree….

    Reinstate Lt. Col. Terry Lakin into the U.S. Army with full rank, pay, benefits and pension immediately.

    The former Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin was a highly-decorated Army flight surgeon who questioned whether or not the orders he received from Obama were legitimate. Court-martialed, imprisoned, expelled from the Army and denied pay, pension and benefits, Terry was merely following his officer’s oath and constitutional duty. It is an outrage that this was allowed to happen. Obama refused to answer Terry’s letter and ended up producing a forged birth certificate. Terry who was a medical doctor is a valuable asset to the American military and the fact that his military chain of command and his congressional representatives allowed him to be court-martialed and run out of the army is an outrage for all Americans. This grave injustice needs to be addressed and corrected ASAP.

      Moral implications (and there are plenty of them) aside, this process has been hotly debated for a long time, as has the use of swine organs, tissue, etc. in humans. A large problem is the potential to make human recipients vulnerable to diseases now found only in swine. There are many, many posdible ramifications here, most not so good.

    Rest Only in Christ

    by Henry M. Morris, Ph.D. | Jan. 27, 2017

    “But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark.” (Genesis 8:9)

    Unlike the raven, which Noah had sent out first, the dove could not live on the carrion floating on the floodwaters. After nine months cooped up in the Ark, she had reveled in her freedom when Noah first released her from the window of the Ark. Unaware of the outside perils while safe with Noah, she flew gaily off into the open spaces beyond, just like many a professing Christian, eager to cast off the constraints of his or her parental religion. “And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest. Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness” (Psalm 55:6-7).

    But the dove could find no rest away from Noah, whose very name means “rest”! His father, Lamech, by prophetic inspiration, had called his name Noah, saying, “This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed” (Genesis 5:29). So, she finally returned, finding rest once again in Noah’s outstretched hands.

    Just so, the Lord Jesus, in His greater ark of secure salvation, is waiting at its open window with arms outstretched, inviting all those weary of the doomed world outside to return to Him. “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30). Christ’s message to the weary wanderer is: “I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, . . . return unto me; for I have redeemed thee” (Isaiah 44:22). HMM

    Netflix has a new movie that trivializes, if not normalizes CANNIBALISM.

    I sat down to eat a late lunch and watch a movie on Netflix.

    What should appear on the open page, but this movie ad with a couple, captioned “She craves human flesh, but he just wants to live a normal life. Sometimes compromise is necessary to make a marriage work.”

    The movie is Santa Clarita Diet – starring Drew Barrymore.

    I see this as an extension of the Pizzagate/Spirit Cooking evil world of the left.

    I called Netflix, but the woman was very defensive and said they do not censor movies.

    I said that normalizing cannibalism is unacceptable in any venue.

    Goodbye, Netflix.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
