Thursday September 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 Origin of Lawlessness

    “What do you attribute the lawlessness to that currently plagues the nations?”

    It is a product of the mystery of iniquity, which is Satan’s plan to undermine all God-given authority. He has been effectively working behind the scenes since the days of the Apostle Paul to bring the world to a state of chaos, with a specific purpose in mind (II Thes. 2:1-12).

    The false religions that Satan introduced throughout the centuries all stand in direct opposition to the true Church, where righteousness is extolled as a virtue. Contrariwise, in the name of religion, which Karl Marx called “the opiate of the people,” terrorists shed the blood of innocent victims to promote their ungodly ideology. Sadly, we are only witnessing the tip of the iceberg. Make no mistake, the primary target of these extreme jihadists is Christians. Simply watch their training clips, and you will find that most of the images they are shooting at have the Cross of Christ embossed on them.

    Satan also loves to sing the praises of theological liberalism! The Word of God that once influenced the lives of both the believer and unbeliever is no longer held up as the final authority. The new normal is there are no absolutes any more. The mantra of our day is, “Let every man do what’s right in his own eyes” (cf. Judges 21:25). As a result, our streets have become like the wild west with shootings and murders commonplace.

    With no spiritual mooring to the Word of God, marriage has become optional with more and more couples living together. This is the seed plot for immorality and pornography which have become rampant, leaving the souls of men and women burdened with guilt and a sense of worthlessness. Satan has successfully undermined the authority of the home, which is foundational to any society. Every time he destroys a home it weakens the moral fabric of a nation.

    Clearly Satan is behind these evil influences and every other evil known to mankind. He merely sets things in motion, and the flesh is more than willing to accommodate whatever sinful pursuit that is put before it. The goal of the evil one is to bring the world to the precipice of utter confusion. When he accomplishes this objective, he will introduce the Antichrist after the Rapture of the Church. The man of sin will step onto the stage of the world as a man of peace, with all the answers to the world’s ills that have eluded men. He will be an overnight sensation being the Devil’s “Answer Man.”

    2 Thessalonians 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
    2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
    3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
    4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

    5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
    6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
    7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
    8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

    9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
    10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
    11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
    12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    Judges 21:25 In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.

    THE UNBLAMEABLE ATTITUDE

    “If…thou rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee…” Matthew v. 23

    If when you come to the altar, there you remember that your brother has anything against you, not – If you rake up something by a morbid sensitiveness, but – “If thou rememberest,” that is, if it is brought to your conscious mind by the Spirit of God: “first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.” Never object to the intense sensitiveness of the Spirit of God in you when He is educating you down to the scruple.

    “First be reconciled to thy brother…” Our Lord’s direction is simple, “first be reconciled.” Go back the way you came, go the way indicated to you by the conviction given at the altar; have an attitude of mind and a temper of soul to the one who has something against you that makes reconciliation as natural as breathing. Jesus does not mention the other person, He says – You Go. There is no question of your rights. The stamp of the saint is that he can waive his own rights and obey the Lord Jesus.

    “And then come and offer thy gift.” The process is clearly marked. First, the heroic spirit of self-sacrifice, then the sudden checking by the sensitiveness of the Holy Spirit, and the stoppage at the point of conviction, then the way of obedience to the word of God, constructing an unblameable attitude of mind and temper to the one with whom you have been in the wrong; then the glad, simple unhindered offering of your gift to God.

    The only reason I’m posting about someone’s personal business is because Andrew Cuomo is at the center of New York Uniparty dirty politics, and part of the resistance to our president, and also has designs of his own on holding that office.

    When Andrew went berserk, with his crazy abortion laws, and nobody in politics said anything, I had to wonder what his girlfriend, Sandra Lee thought about that, because she’s a little bit of a practicing Catholic. Although abortion doesn’t bother her, I had to think that infanticide might.

    It has been confirmed, the rumors are true, they are no longer a couple.
    https://www.timesunion.com/news/article/Cuomo-splits-from-longtime-girlfriend-Sandra-Lee-14468072.php
    I’m thinking his deranged pursuit of power at any cost might have played a part.

    He’s self-destructing. I was worried about his threat to our president’s re-election, but that is diminishing daily.

    It’s worth noting that this is the man who took it upon himself to decree what marriage shall henceforth be in New York.

    BTW, if we are going to be giving live-in relationships the same status as marriage, New York’s and other state’s financial disclosure rules for elective officeholders should be updated to reflect that.

      I think Trump, a businessman Cuomo has no great love for, being elected, especially after Cuomo – a professional politician – has been passed over for consideration by imported Rats like Hillary has to hurt. I don’t think that in any sane universe Cuomo could believe the Rat elites would pressure wash him and put him up for POTUS so all he has left is bile that he’ll spew on Trump.

    Here we have impeachment hearings being mounted against Trump for infractions manufactured out of whole cloth by slimy tailors and Obama/Holder are walking the streets after being the proximal cause of how many Mexican (and at least one US) death? Oh yeah, and the illegal manufacturing of fully auto weapons, illegal sales of weapons and those fully auto weapons and their sales across international borders.

    If any real Republicans had any huevos they’d push DoJ for an indictment and, barring that, file in the International Court – the guns were illegally made in the US and illegally transported across an international border and knowingly sold to violent criminals. That would be delicious irony, Obama the Internationalist brought up on charges in the Hague. Won’t happen though as it would set a precedent for going after countries that supply weapons to insurgents and neither side wants that.

    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.
