Friday July 20th – 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 †

    The Kaiser’s Surprise

    In his comments on Isaiah 57, Dr. Harry Ironside shares this story:

    Years ago, before the First World War, Professor Stroeter, a well-known prophetic teacher in Germany, used to go through the country giving lectures, and using charts to unfold the dispensations. His lectures attracted the attention of the German Emperor, Kaiser Wilhelm, who in spite of his many idiosyncrasies, was quite a Bible student, and used to preach in the palace chapel on many occasions.

    The Kaiser invited Professor Stroeter to his palace to give him an idea of what he was lecturing upon. The professor was taken into the library and spread a roll of his charts out on the table. The Kaiser followed him as he pointed out various things in the dispensations until the Second Coming of the Lord. After a lengthy conversation the Kaiser said, “Do I understand you aright? Do you mean to say that Jesus Christ is coming back literally, and that when He returns all the kingdoms of the world are going to be destroyed and He will set up His kingdom on the ruins of them all?”

    And Professor Stroeter said, “Exactly, your Majesty….”

    “Oh, no,” said the Kaiser, “I can’t have that! Why that would interfere with all my plans!”

    We don’t know if Professor Stroeter understood the dispensations well enough to have expressed to the Kaiser that the coming of our Lord to rapture His church must come before the wrath of the Tribulation and the Second Coming of Christ (I Thes. 1:10; 5:9). Regardless, what a frank admission from a man who professed to be a student and teacher of the Word of God!

    How about you, dear reader? If you are not saved, you will be left behind when the Body of Christ is “caught up” to meet the Lord in the air (I Thes. 4:17). While we believers will “ever be with the Lord” in heaven, the seven years of Great Tribulation that will follow on earth will surely interfere with all that you have planned. Why not trust the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior by believing that His death, burial and resurrection paid for all of your sins. Then you too can look forward to being a part of all that the Lord has planned for His saints.

    But we close by asking Christians if the Rapture will interfere with your plans, or be the triumph of His grace in your life? When John Wesley was asked what he would do the following day if he knew the Lord were coming, he replied that he would rise at his usual hour, spend time in his regularly scheduled morning devotions, and arrive promptly at his first speaking engagement of the day. In other words, he wouldn’t have to change a thing in his life to prepare for the coming of the Lord. May this be true of us too!

    The Prayer to St Jude
    O most holy apostle, Saint Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus,
    the Church honoureth and invoketh thee universally, as the patron of hopeless cases,
    and of things almost despaired of.

    Pray for me, who am so miserable. Make use, I implore thee, of that particular
    privilege accorded to thee, to bring visible and speedy help where help was almost
    despaired of.

    Come to mine assistance in this great need, that President Trump may receive
    the consolation and succor of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations,
    and sufferings, particularly an end to the evil perpetuated by liberals that he may praise
    God with thee and all the elect throughout eternity.

    I promise thee, O blessed Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favour,
    to always honour thee as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully
    encourage devotion to thee.

    I hope these posts are read by folks who can take a solid idea back to whoever is in charge of “The Plan”. This is a war being fought on many fronts and I have no complaints, just one suggestion.

    A golden opportunity is being missed by not scheduling at least two tough votes a week for the red state Dem Senators. You all know how the game is played. The Supreme court vote cannot be the only tough vote scheduled. I have my own ideas for disruptive votes that will tear the Dems apart. Curious what other Treepers might suggest?

    • I think this is an excellent idea. We should see the repeated disruptions by those invested still in destroying our country…and RED media army (and there are enough now who can do a little extra work and not depend upon FAcebook and YOutube and TWitter to disseminate) can cleverly get the behavior exposed and help those on the left who still have working brain cells see the complete disdain for their ideas by ‘their betters’.

      An example that is not red state but ought to be covered: California’s judges ONCE AGAIN determining that a perfectly legal movement to divide the state has to be rejected.

      A documentary needs to be made on how many times in the last 15 years Californians voted surprisingly similarly to fly over country…and how many times our kangaroo court overturned them.

      THIS is part of the reason the illegals are so welcomed here. It is becoming harder and harder to mute the voice of the masses with crooked judges of the much overturned 9th circuit.

      As Trump appoints more constitutionally based judges California’s 9th circuit becomes at risk. Trump has whipped them into a frenzy by merely commenting he is looking into splitting it.

      There is a race to overrun the state with illegals and dependents (Kate Steinle showed us that along with the abortion/baby parts retail business there is zero love for legal citizens’ lives) so that there will simply not be enough red Californians left to eventually be victorious over our own fetid swamp.

      And someone needs to do a REAL bio piece on Brown’s history…going all the way back to what looks like an Alinsky style invasion of Jesuit seminaries, which made so many in that order toxic leftists.

      While they’re at it, as long as we are on that subject, those who value LEGAL immigration need to have a really close look at the LONG TIME ACTIVIST archbishop of L.A. Gomez (amnesty for every one and open borders for DECADES) and his leftist crony pals Bishop McGrath of San Jose and Bishop McElvoy of San Diego…These three belong in a footnote in the history of the Catholic church among those who have given it a black eye through the centuries. They have openly gathered to defeat Trump in the next election, with rhetoric that Jesus would most certainly never countenance. Trump ironically sounds far more devout and humble than they do…and that is saying something.

      To get back to your point, now is a golden opportunity you are right to continue to trigger the left while they have absolutely no sense of how they sound since to each other they are the epitome of self-restraint, logic and wisdom.

        • Oh I know. McGrath, if you’ll forgive the language, is hellbent on inflicting his madness.

          Church of hte Resurrection, in Sunnyvale, is actually pretty good but that may be far for you.

          There ARE some churches still that know this is not the heart and mind of Jesus all of this politics.

          Jesus did not rail against the laws in his day.

          It’s this darn Alinsky crap and all of the public education that these people got going back to The Pill and Vietnam and the hippie love the one you’re with….
          oH, and of course…relativism (don’t judge me!)..

          Even Mary, when asked back in Rwanda why she did not appear more replied that the hearts were too hard. REminds me of Jesus saying the same about being disdained in his home town. Likewise, Mary said that people are so cynical that miracles do not reach them as they once did.

          No surprise when our commie/socialist education and politicians have taken God away from the public since that unconstitutional interpretation of church and state was rendered completely inappropriately as people being free to shut down free religious speech if it offended them.

          Let’s face it, atheist socialism IS the imposed religion, with so many of those idiots willing to go next to Gaia worship and then fall right into the hands of Sharia.

          Prayers and sacrifice is all I can say. We cannot say no to the Eucharist because that is Christ we are rejecting, but MAN are those homilies a penance!! And you cannot even write to your bishop OR the US Catholic bishops because they’re all nuts.

          Cordileone is very good on many things and I have to wonder what must be pressuring him to support these illegal immigrants when things he has said imply he DOES know better.

    • Oh fantastic and congratulations on your new miracle!!!! My mother had three of us ranging in age from newborn to 2 1/2 and there is no question that local grandparents were of immense help. And less than half a decade later she would be studying for and passing a bar exam at of less than half a dozen women in her class (it may have been one of two or three).

      I am proud to say that when CA representative Anna Eshoo (Kamala Harris type back then in the mid 70s) tried to pretend that women were oppressed, had less opportunity and could not be good role models for their daughters, my mother wrote a reply, citing Eshoo’s inaccuracies with pinpoint, substantiated evidence, ending with the truth that her own daughter certainly didn’t lack a role model that could be drawn upon for inspiration (full disclaimer: as a teen I was in no mood to have a very constitutionally based, highly intelligence and insightful lawyer for a mother. I would get cross examined in my stories and did NOT like being held accountable for general comments) .

      “America” was by then a rag trending liberal and they allowed her article blasting The Feminist Myth, hoping to get more readers and reaction…and boy did they ever get that!…

      Amusingly, another response that she wrote to the L.A. times, disagreeing with a fawning critique of a liberal trash book, inspired so much rage that the paper encouraged a back and forth with the rage aimed at her with wild accusations and claims; and her response t hat eloquently and calmly tore apart their inaccuracies so perfectly that even more spluttering rage was expressed.

      I got a glimpse early on therefore of this behavior that we are now seeing.

      I am a pro life advocate now who gets to use the same restrained respect against thsoe who are spluttering with rage against me. Ironically, here in the Bay Area, the most vulgar and hostile are women ranging in age from mid 40s to their 80s from very wealthy neighborhoods. More evidence is being collected that their rage is due to their own abortions leaving them quite broken and haunted and their denial of it is what makes them among the most over the top….it’s quite a challenge to go from thinking that sweeping out blobs is a women’s right….to realizing that being partner to an murder that wreaks physical agony on a baby was done voluntarily with self-righteous glee.


      I am so SOOO happy that you are among those choosing life. Love and limitless futures for your family, the community and the world are all possible when on the other side the attempt to escape the truth closes all doors to realizing the full potential of one miraculous life.

      God bless you.

      It has turned into a big full-time business for them.

      They can at least keep the poop off of Our Land, since they get to use it for virtually nothing.

        “…strangely attracted to towels…” Lol! That made me snicker out loud. Thanks!

        Mine are all wild born ferals, most of which have become more or less domesticated. There are some you would never know they are ferals and others you definitely know they are. They come and go as they please; I don’t try to keep them in or out–except black ones around Halloween. I mostly let them decide. A few prefer outdoors more than in, but most of them spend a lot of time indoors too–hence the towels. I learned long ago if I wanted to protect my work equipment, towels it is, especially the printer.

        Now that they are all finally past the kitten stage (thank you, Lord, for small mercies!), they do sleep through the night. Every now and then one of them will scratch at the door at some ungodly hour waking me up to be let in or go out. In the good weather months, several of them like to spend the night outside. In the winter, though, 100% want in and 80% are plastered up against me in the bed. One time I woke up and counted 12 bunched up against me, which explains why I couldn’t hardly breathe let alone move…. 😉

        Taking care of ferals is very hard on your heart. I lose a lot of them due to predators, people who hurt them and illness/disease. I’ve lost 8 since I moved to TN. I love ’em and provide food, shelter and blankies/towels and the occasional vet visit for their comfort and care and it’s the best I can do since it’s just little ol’ me paying for everything. You don’t want to know what my cat food/supplies bill is every month. Trust me. 😉

    SPIDERS AND SPACE WEATHER: Did you know that spiders can fly? Biologists call it “ballooning.” Spiders spin a strand of silk, it juts into the air, and off they go. Airborne arachnids have been found as high as 4 km off the ground. Originally, researchers thought spiders were riding currents of air, but there’s a problem with that idea. Spiders often take flight when the air is calm, and large spiders fly even when air currents are insufficient to support their weight. It’s a mystery.

    Scientists from the University of Bristol may have found the solution. In a paper published in the July 5th edition of Current Biology, they proved that spiders can propel themselves using electric fields.

    “We exposed adult Linyphiid spiders (Erigone) to electric fields similar to those which naturally occur in Earth’s atmosphere,” explains the paper’s lead author, Erica Morley. “Spiders showed a significant increase in ballooning in the presence of electric fields.” A remarkable video of their experiment shows one spider flying when the fields were switched on, then sinking when the fields were off again.

    The electric fields spiders use for propulsion are part of Earth’s global atmospheric electric circuit (GEC)–a planet-sized circuit of electricity that researchers have known about since the 1920s. In a nutshell, thunderstorms help build up a charge difference between the ground and the ionosphere 50 km overhead. The voltage drop is a staggering 250,000 volts. This sets up electric fields linking Earth to the edge of space. Cosmic rays ionize Earth’s atmosphere, turning it into a weak conductor that allows currents to flow through the GEC.

    Scroll down for the rest of the story…..

    Politics is downstream from culture. Do Not Look Away:

    “James Gunn has been fired as the director of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” after a series of offensive tweets were unearthed that made light of such controversial topics as pedophelia and rape. Disney, the studio behind the comic book franchise, made the announcement in the midst of Comic-Con, the geek convention where Gunn is beloved for his horror work in films such as “Slither” and for the irreverent take he applied to the superhero genre in the first Guardians and its sequel. ”

    Backstory: Gunn went on an anti-Trump tirade on Twitter, prompting 4-Chan users to dig into his past tweets. These “jokes” were shared with at least one convicted pedophile. Gunn then chose to mass-delete 10,000 tweets dating from between 2008-2012, which was revealed when he accidentally tweeted out a search command.

    Gunn joins fellow directors Brian Singer (pedophile allegations) and Brett Radner (sexual misconduct) who have been fired over sexual conduct.

    It should be kept in mind that there has been a massive invasion of SJWs into “nerd culture” (comics, card games, video games, board and tabletop games etc) in the last five years, which also has begun affecting the content of blockbuster movie franchises.

      That neat tech, but I’m of a firm belief that the determined human mind and human spirit and human courage can outwit, out strategize, and beat machines anytime. How many times in history has a low tech, more determined army beaten a bigger, high tech army?

      Keep in mind that these robots and the programs that run them were created by fallible humans. These machines have flaws, parameters outside of which they do not work well, and vulnerabilities.

      The Jews better count on their own brains first if they hope to survive.

    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.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    Just in case you weren’t disgusted enough. I’m watching MIB on Paramount network, and there’s a graphic on the corner of the screen announcing a new show.
    “Rest In Power – The Trayvon Martin Story. New Series.”
    Here’s a promo clip I found on YT, and the comments below.

    Now I’m going to go find something good. I have something in mind, it won’t take long.
