Sunday June 4th – Open Thread

Our 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 †

    Ramadan in Kabul: Triple jihad suicide bombing at funeral, 12 murdered, 90 wounded
    June 3, 2017 5:54 pm by Robert Spencer

    “A Taliban spokesman recently explained: ‘Our fight is Jihad and an obligatory worship. And every obligatory act of worship has 70 times more reward in Ramadan’.”

    https://www.jihadwatch.org/2017/06/ramadan-in-kabul-triple-jihad-suicide-bombing-at-funeral-12-murdered-90-wounded

    Note: Self-motivated jihadis make a run for more rewards as they murder their way to the afterlife. May they get their just reward this day via a MOAB.

        You might recall the stories about the 19 jihadi 9/11 terrorists, some of whom while they were planning the attacks often spent time in bars drinking and paying for lap dances. When you are on jihad you may do all sorts of forbidden things. What a disgusting, uncivilized belief system framed by the Evil One himself!

    Seizing Of Philippines City By Islamist Militants A Wake-Up Call For Southeast Asia

    June 4, 2017

    http://www.oann.com/seizing-of-philippines-city-by-islamist-militants-a-wake-up-call-for-southeast-asia/

    for the past 12 days, Marawi City on the southern island of Mindanao, has been under siege and overwhelmed by the Maute group, alligned with ISIS…

    according to the article, this siege “is the biggest warning yet that the Islamic State is building a base in Southeast Asia and bringing…brutal tactics to the region.”

    “For some time, the governments of Southeast Asia have been worried about what happens when battle-hardened Islamic State fighters…return home as the group loses ground in the Middle East, and now they have added concerns about the region becoming a magnet for foreign jihadis.”

    ” ‘If we do nothing, they get a foothold in this region’, said…the defense minister of Malaysia.”

    indeed…if we do nothing.

    FTA – Islam, like cancer, needs a cure. And we all have to participate in the search for one before it’s too late.

    What we need now is an international terrorism accord — and, unlike the climate accord, a binding one — that would commit the world, including the Muslim nations themselves, to the complete reformation of Islam that is the necessary basis for an end to this terrorism.

      The ‘cure’ for Islam is written in Isaiah.

      The rise of Islam is discipline for decadence and disobedience. (Isaiah 10:5, 26:3, 30:15) and cannot be cured or removed or defeated by the sword of man – only the Sword of the LORD – which is the Word of GOD. (Isaiah 31:8-9)

      Repentance and return to GOD and HIS WORD is the only cure for Islam.

      The decadence and disobedience of the Western Nations has invited Islam to rise and conquer. Western nations have laws that enable us to break all of GOD’s laws and some that would force us to do so.

      See also Romans 1:18-32.

      There is only one way of true peace and it isn’t Islam.

      Jesus is our Peace with GOD …and man. (Ephesians 2:14)

    Why would the PLO (Progressive-Liberal Organization) nee DNC, not want to shutdown immigration, in light of the ISIS threat? At least for the past several years.
    They just don’t see the threat? Maybe. I think some of the PLO population probably doesn’t have all the Intel and wants to feel good about opening their hearts and our country. The leadership though, they know. Not only do they know, but, they’re fighting to keep the gates wide open. Why put us at risk?
    There has to be another reason. I think it has to do with One Global Community; this seems to be their ultimate goal, but, never discussed. Anyone think different?
    How could you possibly get a democracy to give up it’s identity and borders?
    Brainwash the children.
    Dilute the population with those that have no interest or understanding of our constitution.
    Remove our means to fight back.

    It’s not possible to build up the rest of the northern hemisphere population to our standard of living so the only why to do it is to bring our standards of living down, while we pay for other countries standard of living to be raised.

    Why give the Paris Climate $1B of our hard borrowed money?
    Another way to spread the wealth perhaps. What I want to know is where is that $1B going. Anyone know how the $1B is used?

    BTW, I don’t think the DNC is a functioning party any longer. I think it is the PLO now, see above. So, the Donkey and Elephant are taken, which animal represents the PLO?
    Snake?
    Ostrich?

    MY FACEBOOK POST THIS SUNDAY MORNING:
    “It’s Sunday morning, when Christian churches call their members to attend and worship. However, when some Christian Pastors say, “Well, who’s to judge what’s the one true religion in the world”, I say to them: “You’ve lost your way in your leadership role. If all religions are equivalent, you are irrelevant in bringing folks to Christianity.”
    This is not hypothetical; I’ve personally heard a couple of Pastors make such statements. It’s eye-opening and jaw-dropping to me.”

      Dearest H Hutto,

      Thank you. Thank you for remembering me and for your words of peace.

      Today is a glorious day for me. Today is my favorite Christian Holy Day — Pentecost. More than the glorious day of celebrating Christ’s arrival on this big rock, more than Good Friday when Christ proclaimed, “It is finished,” more than Resurrection Sunday when He rose from the grave and death, I look forward to this day — Pentecost — when the Holy Spirit came in power and glory, filling the redeemed of Jesus Christ with His glory.

      So as we worship The One true and holy God, your goodness and mercy show the meaning of this day — through the Holy Spirit’s majesty.

      Glorious Pentecost to you, by brothers and sisters in Christ.

    This is a great blog- hard to get your mind around how intertwined each and every event and action is related to the past and our future, biblically and prophetically. I recommend a reading of it- *snip* A man of peace. Trump was welcomed in Bethlehem with the declaration, a “sign” no less reading “man of peace”. The town where over 2000 years earlier the Prince of Peace would be born now welcomes the man of peace.

    The plastic surgery, I don’t know if it’s because she’s getting older, or if she’s had more done, but it is starting to look kind of ugly, IMO.
    That, and the odd, self-important hand gestures, give me a feeling of revulsion. Walter Cronkite never used to resort to waving his hands in the air and making faces.
    I notice 60 Minutes is running a ‘Putin is the devil” piece along with a Chobani ‘aren’t Muslim immigrants great’ commercial disguised as news.
