Saturday September 21st – 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 †

    Trump is right about trade with China and America First is an ethical position and. ultimately, I think he/we will win. But please pray for all the poor peasants in China and the disabled children who languish in orphanages.

      It’s the smug superior attitude of these a-holes that really rubs me raw. Look at their reaction after she was finished. They had already dismissed her before she stopped speaking. They paid no attention to what she said.

      Are you a big Supremes fan???


      • Robert Smith says:

        You could say I’m not a fan in the sense that I read all about them etc. but I did listen to them a ton which is the part that matters.

        One of the earlier records I bought was whatever version of Diana Ross & The Supremes Anthology triple record set. That was well before I got into audio so I played it on an all-in-one receiver with a record player on top. The ones that allow you to stack records. As they say I wore it out. It might just be the massive amount of time I listened to it but I thought it sequenced well.

          I was going to honor your gift on the Open Thread of The Supremes video with an equally interesting video. In November of 1964 there was a concert, ‘The TAMI Show”, held in Santa Monica, CA that featured, among other acts, The Supremes. What stopped me from posting it was the low quality of the videos available on the internet. I own the DVD which is vastly superior to the internet offerings. Still, you should google “The TAMI Show” and check out the whole 7+ minutes of The Supremes on YouTube to get an idea. If you like what you see, spend the $8 or so and buy the DVD from Walmart and I promise you the quality of the DVD is light years ahead of the YouTube offerings … equal to your offering. There is NO lip syncing at The TAMI Show.

    The First Month of the Year

    Even a child knows that January is the first month of our calendar year. For the ancient people of Israel, however, the first month of the year was the month of Abib, which roughly equates to our month of April. Speaking of Abib, God said,

    “This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you” (Exodus 12:2).

    If you are wondering why God chose April as the beginning of months for His chosen people, we learn the reason in the next chapter:

    “Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt….This day came ye out in the month Abib” (Exodus 13:3,4).

    God wanted His ancient people to “remember” that their birth as a nation marked a new beginning for them, so he instructed them to “observe” this month as something special unto the Lord (Deut. 16:1). God’s people today often do the same with their spiritual birthdays. Many who can tell you the exact date they were saved consider the day worth remembering each year.

    But what if you can’t remember the day you trusted Christ as your Savior? There are many believers who grew up under the sound of the gospel and were saved at an early age. Occasionally we hear from these dear saints, who tell us they are troubled by the fact that they cannot remember the day they were saved. Since they can’t remember the date, some even wonder if they are truly saved.

    When we hear from believers like this, we like to point out that while we can’t remember the day we first understood that we were born an American citizen, now that we know it to be so, we know that all the rights promised to citizens in the Bill of Rights are ours. In the same way, while you may not remember the day of your spiritual birth, now that you believe, you can be sure that the promise of eternal life and all the other blessings found in Paul’s epistles are yours.

    The point is, of course, that it doesn’t matter when you first believe something; what matters is what you believe right now. If you believe you can get to heaven by something that you yourself can do, you are not saved. If you rather believe you are going to heaven because of what Christ did for you on Calvary, we’ll see you someday in glory!

      Like alot of Chris Rea’s music. “On The Beach” one of my favs of his. The lyrics on “The Road to Hell” sum up modern life very well.

    My American friends, I posted here a song from the Old Testament from Psalm songs. It is really a prayer for someone who is in trouble and some say it’s for soldiers before battle. In any case it’s quite amazing that the song is probably three or four thousands years old and present time Israel is using the same language with very little difference. It’s translated. Blessings!

    “And now, saith the Lord, that formed me from the womb to be His servant.” Isaiah xlix. 5

    The first thing that happens after we have realized our election to God in Christ Jesus is the destruction of our prejudices and our parochial notions and our patriotisms; we are turned into servants of God’s own purpose. The whole human race was created to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. Sin has switched the human race on to another tack, but it has not altered God’s purpose in the tiniest degree; and when we are born again we are brought into the realization of God’s great purpose for the human race, viz., I am created for God, He made me. This realization of the election of God is the most joyful realization on earth, and we have to learn to rely on the tremendous creative purpose of God. The first thing God will do with us is to “force through the channels of a single heart” the interest of the whole world. The love of God, the very nature of God, is introduced into us, and the nature of Almighty God is focused in John iii. 16 – “God so loved the world…”.

    We have to maintain our soul open to the fact of God’s creative purpose, and not muddle it with our own intentions. If we do, God will have to crush our intentions on one side however much it may hurt. The purpose of which the missionary is created is that he may be God’s servant, one in whom God is glorified. When once we realize that through the salvation of Jesus Christ we are made perfectly fit for God, we shall understand why Jesus Christ is so ruthless in His demands. He demands absolute rectitude from His servants, because He has put into them the very nature of God.

    Beware lest you forget God’s purpose for your life.

        Globalists elites are spoiled brats all grown up in stature. They have all they need but want more and desire to take everyone else’s toys also so they can control the game at any time. Those kids used to sit at home without friends because nobody wanted to play with them, probably still do.
        If you gave up everything as they ask, still nothing would change, they would make another plea for humanity.
        We used to laugh at insanity like this, or give it very little credence but in our world today education is all but gone. People are not taught ‘how’ to think they are told ‘ what’ to think.

        I was told by an old navy man when they approached china a day or two before the ship hit port they smelled China’s putrid filth. That was 30 plus years ago.

    Some of you may have heard that the Colt Arms Co. will be halting production of its AR-15 for the civilian market. Well, it’s true. Here is an official statement from the bigwigs at the company: Make of it what you will.
    But do not be unduly concerned, there are other manufacturers producing that rifle. This article also kinda bolsters my contention that the ‘-15 is the preferred choice. Not because it’s a superior weapon, but its widespread availability. It’s the 7-Eleven of home defense rifles – there’s one on every corner. Anything goes wrong, you need some parts – you don’t have far to look. Could be a key factor in surviving the zombie apocalypse.

    Nativity of ourvMost Holy Lady, the Theotokos and Ever-virgin Mary

    September 8th on the traditional Calendar of the Orthodox Christian Church
    September 21st on the civil calendar

    Dismissal Hymn
    Thy nativity, O Theotokos, hath proclaimed joy to the whole world; for from thee hath dawned the Sun of Righteousness, Christ our God, annulling the curse, and bestowing the blessing, abolishing death and granting us life everlasting.

    Kontakion (Hymn)
    Joachim and Anna were freed from the reproach of childlessness, and Adam and Eve from the corruption of death, O immaculate one, by thy holy nativity, which thy people, redeemed from the guilt of offences, celebrate by crying to thee: The barren woman giveth birth to the Theotokos, the nourisher of our life.

    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.

    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.
