Friday October 13th – 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 †

    If Hillary Clinton were to be asked if Harvey Weinstein’s behavior compared to that of her husband’s would her response be, “close, but no cigar” ?

    Due to my ‘scientific’ upbringing, I have always struggled with the concepts of immaculate conception and being risen from the dead, despite assurances from good friends and colleagues. After 60 odd years of life, I have finally been Born Again.
    Credit for much of this goes to a cupla years of CTH, SD + crew + All the unwavering posts by the Treepers. Your belief is amazing and I have seen it work. Eg : PDJT was elected against all odds, and continues the good fight.
    Blessings and Prayers to all

      Wonderful news golsono. Remember, we are all at different points on our path. When you feel a bit discouraged, please look up and to the front!

      GREAT news, golsono ! ❤

      lots of blessings to you 🙂

      Golsono, that is marvelous news! Though we won’t meet in person in this life, we will surely meet in the next, my brother.

      Always remember that our Lord doesn’t mind sincere questions. Jesus, Himself, is Truth, and He will lead us in learning what is true about science, humanity…every subject if we truly seek it out, asking His discernment.

      Matthew 7:7-8 says, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

      The entire “Sermon On the Mount” is our Lord’s guide…

      God bless!

      Wow, what a glorious day this is, to meet another brother/sister in the Lord.

      Praise, honor, glory and dominion are our God’s now and forever more. His goodness and grace has poured upon your life and He bought you, Jesus paid the price, and the Holy Spirit drew you — hallelujah, all the angels in Heaven rejoiced when you were made a new creation. . . no matter your age!

      Sweet, wonderful, wondrous news. Thank you for letting us know!

      That is wonderful news golsono – God is Great!


  3. Searching for the phrase, *Do not be afraid* in the ancient, inspired writings of Moses reveals a consistent message for those who choose to be warriors for what is right and true (as given by the One who is Truth).

    Exodus 14:13 [ The Sea Is Divided ] Then Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid! Take your stand [be firm and confident and undismayed] and see the salvation of the Lord which He will accomplish for you today; for those Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see again.”

    Has the need for preparedness ever been brought into a clearer focus?

    When asked to provide a resilient power delivery system for our nation, the power companies dragged an old non-resilient digital electric meter out of mothballs, slapped a new “smart” name on it and spent our tax dollars replacing our more reliable, more accurate and safer meters with them. And our power grid is just as vulnerable (or worse) than before the billions were spent.

    Am praying for creative answers to this serious problem.


    • smiley says:

      oh my…now this is rather uncanny b/c I have been reading various sites for the past hour on this very subject : an EMP attack…perish that thought !

      only creative suggestion I have is : FARADAY CAGES/SHIELDS

      which is probably not answer you’re hoping for ?

      • The issue following an EMP is not whether your digital toys work anymore. The stories about the power delivery infrastructure following the hurricane in Puerto Rico illustrate very effectively the issues. No power, no services, no trucking.


    • The Tesla power wall (large battery to store locally generated solar power) removes the need for power lines that seem to be vulnerable to wildfire damage. All the usual issues related to disaster preparedness apply: water, food, protection from elements, helping neighbors, dealing with threats.
      Drilling down, with power, DIY communications networks can be used when all the usual systems are down. And that’s where storing digital equipment in an EMP protective manner comes in. 🙂

    Suppose the trees and weeds in Napa are in big trouble now? State of Californica is going to fine them for the massive pollution they are causing. Don’t the plants know that is against the law? Governor Moonbean is not a happy camper. The state’s wine industry is going up in smoke just as Hollywood is imploding. Need more electric toy cars, glorified golf carts

    Watching Jessica’s murder trial. They’ve recessed until tomorrow.
    Very good day for Prosecution. These FBI agents and Analyst are pretty good in their presentation of filmed interrogation.

    All day, alternating back and forth from showing segments of interrogation-room film (from a 2 day session in Nov 2015, and another day’s session Jan. 2016) of FBI agents interviewing Perp, with laptop full of video stills and cell phone data (some as long as 45 min segments) THEN having the FBI agent there in the Courtroom to answer direct questions from the Prosecution regarding the segment we & Jury had just watched. Defense should cross-exam. Agent tomorrow.

    There was a camera at the the M&M store outside, that was pointed such that it constantly filmed Perp’s mama’s driveway. The “hour” that Jessica was missing (via phone logs) Perp was also missing. Perp seemed surprised at first that the M&M camera actually filmed his mama’s driveway, and learned a thing or two about cell phones and the trail they leave behind.

    Perp originally talked in 2015, concocting ever growing story about being at the Sandbox, and talk to Big Mike and others, and BigMike drove him here/there, or dropped him off here/there. Agents talked to BigMike before Jan 2016 interrogation. BigMike was verified to be in Tennessee w/confirmed hotel room for big football game that weekend.

    There is also a vid-still (not sure when, but he’d only been friends with Jessica 2 weeks) of Perp with Jessica’s keys. He of course said it was two days before when they tried to go to the liquor store that he’d driven Jessica’s car.

      About the keys, lots of people keep more than one set of car keys. That’s because if one has been mislaid I still need to get to work on time; and if I lend my car to one of the visiting kids or my husband, I still may need to go pick the car up somehow. So it isn’t surprising to me that there was one set of keys in Jessica’s car in the ignition, and that another set was thrown away into the ditch. Jessica probably had another set of spare keys.

      Jessica is the reason why I found the Treehouse, like many many others. I pray for her and hope that she has peace, and I am grateful for what she gave to me (I searched and found the Treehouse because I was appalled by what happened to her). Jessica may have saved many other lives by her sacrifice. I pray her life will fulfill its highest purposes in one way or another. RIP Jessica

    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 and their families 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.

    And, Lord, we pray for all the people who have been affected by the earthquakes and hurricanes.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    Good evening everyone, God bless you all, always

    Psalm 27New King James Version (NKJV)

    An Exuberant Declaration of Faith
    A Psalm of David.

    27 The Lord is my light and my salvation;
    Whom shall I fear?
    The Lord is the strength of my life;
    Of whom shall I be afraid?
    2 When the wicked came against me
    To eat up my flesh,
    My enemies and foes,
    They stumbled and fell.
    3 Though an army may encamp against me,
    My heart shall not fear;
    Though war may rise against me,
    In this I will be confident.
    4 One thing I have desired of the Lord,
    That will I seek:
    That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    All the days of my life,
    To behold the beauty of the Lord,
    And to inquire in His temple.
    5 For in the time of trouble
    He shall hide me in His pavilion;
    In the secret place of His tabernacle
    He shall hide me;
    He shall set me high upon a rock.
    6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me;
    Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle;
    I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.
    7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice!
    Have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
    8 When You said, “Seek My face,”
    My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”
    9 Do not hide Your face from me;
    Do not turn Your servant away in anger;
    You have been my help;
    Do not leave me nor forsake me,
    O God of my salvation.
    10 When my father and my mother forsake me,
    Then the Lord will take care of me.
    11 Teach me Your way, O Lord,
    And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies.
    12 Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries;
    For false witnesses have risen against me,
    And such as breathe out violence.
    13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
    That I would see the goodness of the Lord
    In the land of the living.
    14 Wait on the Lord;
    Be of good courage,
    And He shall strengthen your heart;
    Wait, I say, on the Lord!

  11. Hi Treepers! I need your help. My state rep sent this to us on FB. Below is the link to the petition to President Trump to ask him to isssue a Clemency/Pardon for Sgt. Derrick Miller. The story is at the link.

    Thank you all. I believe this man needs to be pardoned immediately. He acted in self-defense.

    Hello Treehouse People: As the week-end ensues, please remember the words of our Lord. “I have spoken to you that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer. I have overcome the world.” We can be absolutely certain that He is the way, the truth and the light. Enjoy yourselves and be obedient to His Word. It’s the best way. Thank you, Sundance, for lifting me up with the Lord’s prayer
