Friday April 26th – 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 Lamentations of Orthros / Matins for Great and Holy Saturday service is this evening.

    Today is – for those who are healthy – a strict fast day without food, but drinks such as plain water, plain tea, plain coffee are permitted. The Lenten fast will be broken after the Paschal service early Sunday morning, so meat, milk, eggs, cheese, etc. are eaten again.

    The Lamentations service is profound with a dignity that should not include theatrical, worldly chanting or singing.

    Saints Joseph of Arimathæa and Nikodemos, who took the Body of our Lord, God, and Saviour Jesus Christ down from the Cross and gave It burial in a new tomb are brought to mind along with His Mother and the Myrrh-bearing women.

    Standing in the Church, listening attentively, and praying, cannot be matched by seeing a video of this service; it has to be lived.

    For anyone who is interested, there is one video that I found that includes still photos of scenes from the Holy City of Jerusalem, especially from the Church of the Anastasis, the Resurrection, also called the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

    It includes the Lamentations, in part, with Greek chanting and English titles. The YT account is Vasileia – in case this does not upload and someone would like to find it.

    Minneapolis: Muslim cop who killed unarmed woman says he shot her to “stop the threat”
    April 26, 2019 9:00 AM By Robert Spencer

    This proves the truth of what I have said all along about this case: Mohamed Noor was not competent to be a police officer. If he had not been a Somali and a Muslim, he never would have been on the force at all. Identity politics kills. If there is any lesson to be drawn from the killing of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, that is it.

    We are All God’s People. *** IMPORTANT ***

    What matters is faith in Him. We are admonished in the Bible for misinterpretations of genealogies on who are to rule Versus Faith in God.

    Israelites in the Bible are not a monolithic people and not necessarily synonymous with modern Israelis.

    TITUS 3:9 ESV

    But avoid foolish controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels about the law, for they are unprofitable and worthless.

    1 TIMOTHY 1:4 ESV

    Nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies, which promote speculations rather than the stewardship from God that is by faith.

    Lineages outlined in the Bible is important for historical context and in the context of faith. There are several references as to how the later-borns worked harder than the first-born and had faith in God. The chosen who does not rule with God’s love as expected becomes God’s “shame” whereupon He decreed that those whom he loved first to rule is no longer that whom he cherished most.

    Noah had more than three sons but only Shem, Ham and Japeth made it to the Arc.

    It is Noah, not the Lord, who cursed Ham and said that Japeth shall live in the land of Shem and use Ham as slaves. It’s more prophetic than anything meant as rule of law ordained by God. Jesus is the Right Hand of God, John 4.

    1 CHRONICLES 28:6-7

    He said to me: ‘Solomon your son is the one who will build my house and my courts, for I have chosen him to be my son, and I will be his father. I will establish his kingdom forever if he is unswerving in carrying out my commands and laws, as is being done at this time.’

    2 CHRONICLES 7:17-18

    “As for you, if you walk before me faithfully as David your father did, and do all I command, and observe my decrees and laws, I will establish your royal throne, as I covenanted with David your father when I said, ‘You shall never fail to have a successor to rule over Israel.’

    JESUS WAS OF JOSEPH, AND OF DAVID. He said, “a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.”

    Follow the original texts on historical lineage unaltered in Septuagint which matches the Dead Sea Scrolls and Stephyn the Martyr. Beware altered texts in newer versions which come from NOT the Original Hebrew but the Hebrew Masoretic Text (new circa 125 AD).

    Please watch and share to make aware of altered texts.

      Pardons! Son of Christ was of Virgin Mary.
      He was true, of the Lord.

      2 CHRONICLES 7:17 – 22

      17 “As for you, if you walk before me faithfully as David your father did, and do all I command, and observe my decrees and laws,

      18 I will establish your royal throne, as I covenanted with David your father when I said, ‘You shall never fail to have a successor to rule over Israel.’

      19 “But if you[a] turn away and forsake the decrees and commands I have given you[b] and go off to serve other gods and worship them, 20 then I will uproot Israel from my land, which I have given them, and will reject this temple I have consecrated for my Name. I will make it a byword and an object of ridicule among all peoples. 21 This temple will become a heap of rubble. All[c] who pass by will be appalled and say, ‘Why has the Lord done such a thing to this land and to this temple?’

      22 People will answer, ‘Because they have forsaken the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who brought them out of Egypt, and have embraced other gods, worshiping and serving them—that is why he brought all this disaster on them.’”

    Please join me in prayer.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

  13. A prayer for Justice Kavanaugh and Col. Flynn:

    Prayer to St. Michael

    St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
    be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
    and do you, O prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits
    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
