Monday June 29th – 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 Holy Spirit And The Believer Today

    Grace and faith are the characteristic features of the present dispensation. Not only is salvation now declared to be by grace, through faith, but the Spirit also operates in the believer by grace, through faith. He does not take possession of us and cause us to do what is right, but dwells within each believer (I Cor. 6:19) to provide needed guidance and the strength to withstand temptation, and we may avail ourselves of this provision by faith.

    The Spirit, Who first imparted life to us will also impart strength to withstand temptation and overcome sin. In our inability to even pray as we ought, “the Spirit… helpeth our infirmities” and “maketh intercession for us” (Rom. 8:26). In our weakness we are “strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man” (Eph. 3:16) and God even stoops to “quicken [our] mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in us” (Rom. 8:11).

    “Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh” (Ver. 12).

    The implication from the above passage is that though sorely tempted we are debtors to the Spirit who dwells within and provides overcoming power.

    The question, in times of temptation, is generally whether we truly desire to overcome, for we may overcome in any given case by grace, through faith. In the present dispensation it is not true that it is not possible for the believer to sin, but it is blessedly true that in any situation it is possible for him not to sin, for the Spirit is always there to help.

    By Pastor Cornelius R. Stam

    1Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

    Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

    Ephesians 3:16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

    Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

    Romans 8:12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

    As long as we’re being told of the correctness and righteousness of the BLM movement let’s go back to the words of one of its early founders, Huey P. Newton, and accept his quotes as gospel:

    An unarmed people are slaves or are subject to slavery at any given moment.

    When a mechanic wants to fix a broken-down car engine, he must have the necessary tools to do the job. When the people move for liberation they must have the basic tool of liberation: the gun.

    The University is likely going to cave to this ludicrous demand given there long deliberations but it’s not certain yet. They should have said absolutely NO weeks ago.

    To sell out their significant Scottish born heritage because an unrelated Scottish name “Clan” that began in 1100 AD is pronounced the same as the Klan group founded in 1865 is another example of lefty lunacy and intolerance.

          On this subject of “kneeling” as it is described.
          Kneeling is going down on both knees as I do at Mass.
          I genuflect (touch the ground with my right knee) before the altar when the Blessed Sacrament is present. Apart from when I asked the luckiest girl in Scotland for her hand in marriage, that is the only time I use my knees.
          These disciples of Satan are genuflecting in homage to their master.
          Over here in this Marxist statelet called Britain all footballers (soccer ) genuflect to Satan before games. All now wear blm on the back of their shirts in place of their names.
          One day historians will marvel at this mass hysterical attempt to destroy your great president – our last hope.

    DIRECTION OF DISCIPLINE

    “And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.” Matthew v. 30

    Jesus did not say that everyone must cut off the right hand, but – If your right hand offends you in your walk with Me, cut it off. There are many things that are perfectly legitimate, but if you are going to concentrate on God you cannot do them. Your right hand is one of the best things you have, but, says Jesus, if it hinders you in following His precepts, cut it off. This line of discipline is the sternest one that ever struck mankind.

    When God alters a man by regeneration, the characteristic of the life to begin with is that it is maimed. There are a hundred and one things you dare not do, things that to you and in the eyes of the world that knows you are as your right hand and your eye, and the unspiritual person says – Whatever is wrong with that? How absurd you are! There never has been a saint yet who did not have to live a maimed life to start with. But it is better to enter into life maimed and lovely in God’s sight than to be lovely in man’s sight and lame in God’s. In the beginning Jesus Christ by His Spirit has to check you from doing a great many things that may be perfectly right for everyone else but not right for you. See that you do not use your limitations to criticize someone else.

    It is a maimed life to begin with, but in v. 48 Jesus gives the picture of a perfectly full-orbed life – “Ye shall be PERFECT, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

  20. Details of the Satirday Jefferson Square Park (Louisville) shooting are still a bit sketchy, with a member OF the protest shooting INTO the tent city that housed OTHER “Protestors” killing a local reporter.

    Pay attention to the very beginning of this video. The person directly in front of the videographer is NOT the shooter, but he IS carrying a pistol in his right hand. Why? You can tell from everyone’s reactions that no shots had been fired PRIOR to the ones heard a few seconds after this video starts.

    Judging from the lack of background details available about the killer, and the fact this WAS being recorded BEFOREHAND, my spider sense in tingling.

    Has anyone done a DEEP DIVE into the shooter’s social media content?

      • At this point, I haven’t ruled out ANY possible explanation for that shooting, including yours.

        But, it’s difficult to think that this guy was any sort of professionsl, since he allowed himself to be caught so easily.

        Is he an outside (antifa?) agitator trying to INCITE a riot?

        Was the shooting an attempt by antifa to stage a “false flag attack” that could be blamed on the “Alt Right”?

        What other possibilities exist, other than “He’s a Nutjob” or “He was angry because the other people told him to leave”?

    To Ponder

    Let me ponder on the wonderful healing of tbe daughter of the woman of Canaan (Matthew 15: 22):

    1. How the Canaanite woman begged the Lord persistently and repeatedly to save her daughter from the devil that was tormenting her.
    2. How the Lord praised the woman’s faith and healed her daughter.
    3. How the Lord can also free my soul from the devil, who has fallen and alienated himself from God. All I need is the prayer of persistent faith.

    From “The Prologue from Ohrid” by Saint Nikolai (Serbian-born Bishop who reposed in the USA and was a former prisoner at Dachau).

    Here’s what I think: Brutus Graham played golf with PT to deliver this message, pull out now and the torture of the American people will stop; COVID will magically go away, so will BLM & Antifa riots, statues will get a reprieve. Graham might have even offered PT a deal: no prosecution, he goes back to Trump real estate in peace if he doesn’t do anything deleterious to the Chinese, Soros, global cartel between now and end of term. In essence, the cartel is saying to him if you truly love the American people withdraw and save them from a depression & rioting.

    This meshes with the stories being pushed by the corrupt media. I believe it is this bad. The military top brass has been compromised against him and us, prob 80% of the national political class are traitors, Justice and upper echelon law enforcement are corrupt and aligned against PT and us, Chief Justice Roberts, today’s Benedict Arnold had his cover blown (and prob something else) with the discovery that he visited Epstein’s island in 2011, what’s left of local police is being emasculated, and the ballot tally in November will rival Stalin’s elections.

    PT will never cave; but the tools at his disposal to right the ship have been conveniently removed or compromised. Lincoln had more arrows in his quiver. I pray often that President Trump prevails. I don’t know how he’s going to save this republic.

    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.
