Thursday November 7th – 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 †

    I can’t understand why so much of the public thinks Trump’s a divisive figure. So far he’s accomplished the near impossible, uniting the Jewish pols in Congress (save two Republican Jewish Senators) and out three Moslem reps. Of course it’s being united in hating him and Conservative America but hey, no one’s managed to get them all on the same sheet before.

        Yes, but just as that petulant child who was caught with his hand in the cookie jar the Islamic doctrinaires will come up with every excuse in the book as to why the non-Moslems and non-native Arabic speakers do not have the skills, insight and understanding to correctly interpret the Koran.

    Pray About Everything

    “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God” (Phil. 4:6).

    God would have us pray about everything, whether it is of a spiritual or physical nature. In view of the fact that God has blessed us with all spiritual blessings today, we certainly agree that our prayer life should primarily center on spiritual things, such as praying for lost souls, a fuller understanding of the Scriptures, a knowledge of God’s will, wisdom, etc. Here again, however, we must keep in mind the importance of balance in the things of the Lord. God would also have us make known our physical requests.

    Paul prayed about his physical infirmity, not once, but three times (2 Cor. 12:7-9). Prior to his incarceration in Caesarea, the apostle requested that he might have a prosperous journey to Rome; that is, free from hardship (Rom. 1:9,10). We are to pray for earthly rulers that we might lead a quiet and peaceable life to further the cause of Christ (1 Tim. 2:1-3). Paul instructs us not to be an ungrateful people, as Israel was in time past; consequently, we are to return thanks at every meal for God’s bountiful blessings (1 Tim. 4:4,5). We are also to pray about the circumstances in which we might find ourselves. As we have noted, Paul coveted the prayers of those at Philippi that he would soon be delivered from his prison cell in Rome. The apostle writes to Philemon along these same lines: “But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you” (Phile. 1:22).

    Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

    2 Corinthians 12:7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.
    8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.
    9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

    Romans 1:9 For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers;
    10 Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you.

    1 Timothy 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
    2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
    3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

    1 Timothy 4:4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
    5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

    Philemon 1:22 But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.

    Happy Cursday, Treepers!

    I put my fly-rod up and found a comfortable spot to watch the stars come out. Nellie came to sit beside me. I scooted around and put my head on her back, using her for a headrest, but she didn’t seem to mind. Cold air swept above us, yet near the ground it did not feel too bad. We watched the planets appear, then the stars. The sky grew darker until each star stood out, white against black against the gray of the mountaintops. Nellie remained stationary, only her nose sniffing into the wind. She did not budge for an hour, and by that time the stars had eaten into the blackness, shuddering white in a cold sky.

    The future of policing (although I don’t think any Police Depts in the US will be able to afford it). This is in Dubai:

    From wiseGEEK:
    Look! Up in the Dubai sky! It’s not a bird or a plane: It’s a souped-up police motorcycle! That might sound like the premise of a cheesy action film, but the truth is, what sounds like fiction now could be fact quite soon. Dubai, the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates, owns a flying motorcycle known as a Hoverbike, and if all goes to plan, it will have a special police unit zipping through the air on more of the bikes by next year. Technically known as an “electric vertical take-off and landing” (eVTOL) vehicle, the motorcycle is battery-operated and considered a first-responder unit capable of reaching places that other vehicles can’t. The only holdup at present is the limited distance the battery offers, but the manufacturer, the California-based Hoversurf, says it’s working to make flight times more in line with police needs, whether through better batteries or improved propulsion systems. For what it’s worth, Dubai currently has an exclusive contract with Hoversurf to purchase as many of the bikes as it wants, but that doesn’t mean they are off-limits to civilians. As long as you aren’t put off by the $150,000 USD price tag and can pass a test to ensure that you can handle the flying machine, then you could soon be taking to the skies on your own superbike.

    THE UNDETECTED SACREDNESS OF CIRCUMSTANCES

    “All things work together for good to them that love God.” Romans viii. 28

    The circumstances of a saint’s life are ordained of God. In the life of a saint there is no such thing as chance. God by His providence brings you into circumstances that you cannot understand at all, but the Spirit of God understands. God is bringing you into places and among people and into conditions in order that the intercession of the Spirit in you may take a particular line. Never put your hand in front of the circumstances and say – I am going to be my own providence here, I must watch this, and guard that. All your circumstances are in hand of God, therefore never think it strange concerning the circumstances you are in. Your part in intercessory prayer is not to enter into the agony of intercession, but to utilize the commonsense circumstances God puts you in, and the commonsense people He puts you amongst by His providence, to bring them before God’s throne and give the Spirit in you a chance to intercede for them. In this way God is going to sweep the whole world with His saints.

    Am I making the Holy Spirit’s work difficult by being indefinite, or by trying to do His work for Him? I must do the human side of intercession, and the human side is the circumstances I am in and the people I am in contact with. I have to keep my conscious life as a shrine of the Holy Ghost, then as I bring the different ones before God, the Holy Spirit makes intercession for them.

    Your intercessions can never be mine, and my intercessions can never be yours, but the Holy Ghost makes intercession in our particular lives, without which intercession someone will be impoverished.

    How four-legged heroes like military dog Conan are trained
    By Gabrielle Fonrouge
    November 7, 2019 | 6:53am

    SAN ANTONIO — ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi spent the final moments of his life running from one of the US Military’s greatest weapons: a vicious Belgian Malinois named Conan.
    But dogs like Conan are not born heroes — they have to be finely honed from everyday puppies into fearless four-legged warriors.
    And it is no walk in the park.

    America should take a page from Israel’s book on Mexico cartels
    By Russ Vaughn – November 7, 2019

    Our federal government spends tens of billions of taxpayer dollars to protect murky, questionable national interests throughout the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America, and who knows where else in the world, but for some unfathomable reason, it steadfastly refuses to protect our very real, very vital, crystal-clear national interests on our own southern border.

    If ABC had so much information about Epstein and those tied to him, how likely is it that Law Enforcement did not have the same information? The efforts by ABC to cover it all up should be a criminal offense. I really wonder if Law Enforcement also had the information and declined to do anything about it?

    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.
