Independence Day!
« on: July 04, 2015, 06:06:42 PM »
I've always loved the best know quote from the Declaration of Independence.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

Liberty is a cool word and the basis of patriotism.  All politics aside, the ideas of the founding fathers are awesome.  Enjoy the festivities folks!

I agree.

Amen.  Enjoy everyone, and say a prayer for this great country, our home.
7"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8"For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

Matthew 7:7 -8

Happy Independence Day to everyone. However, we must keep on praying for our country because we are becoming a more secular society. This week, I read in the news that a court official ordered the Ten Commandments Statue to be removed from the public square in Oklahoma. Sadly after the recent Supreme Court ruling on homosexual marriage, extremist atheists and homosexual advocates feel more empowered to silence people of faith who stand for traditional values.

  I believe in Jesus peace    , He is our protection and safety  and His Kingdom is not of this world .
 
  I do see the   judgment in the world by divisions  , as Jesus   said and so it is  , if satan is  divided against satan     meaning  adversary  , slanderer  ,accuser
  that   how can his kingdom  stand ?    the world is in  its throws  right now  , so busy , too busy     ..  and as    HOW we judge so shall we be judged accordingly
 
 

       A House Divided
25And knowing their thoughts Jesus said to them, "Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and any city or house divided against itself will not stand. 26"If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then will his kingdom stand? 27"If I by Beelzebul cast out demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? For this reason they will be your judges.
 
 
 Jesus did not come to bring peace but a SWORD   matt 10 The Sword of the Gospel

34"Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35"For I came to SET A MAN AGAINST HIS FATHER, AND A DAUGHTER AGAINST HER MOTHER, AND A DAUGHTER-IN-LAW AGAINST HER MOTHER-IN-LAW;

  AND BRING FIRE  ON THE EARTH   Luke 12 Not Peace, But Division
49"I have come to cast fire upon the earth; and how I wish it were already kindled! 50"But I have a baptism to undergo, and how distressed I am until it is accomplished!

   Those two  meanings show me the divisions in Christ /anointing are  very  real      reality ...  that is cutting and burning     of SPIRIT &TRUTH    TO THE CORE .     to dividing of souls from spirits     in many    and  as well meaning as they may be  , having an opinion or "judgment "   can  lead to a world of hurt
 
 
    Worshipping the FATHER IN SPIRIT &TRUTH    is everyone's quest really  ,   a journey towards a goal  ,to know exactly what that means ..
  making it a personal conviction    ...  so many are growing in truth and grace   as we see the world crumble and burn   around us , tearing  down the works of mens hands   before our eyes .
 
 God will build His House  even in troublesome times ,,   not by strength or might but By His Own Spirit   
 
  I am thankful for every  good and perfect thing God has made right with  Himself already    and  desire to see His completed  GLORY !!
 
  :HeartThrob:
 
Jesus is the reward  !!

 :sigh: I just wish "the Republic for which it [the flag] stands" still existed, as it did in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, but don't get me started... :sigh:
Socrates taught Plato.  Plato taught Aristotle.  Aristotle tutored the son of Philip of Macedon.  This boy grew up to become Alexander the Great, largely by slaughtering a lot of people.  That's philosophy.

Jesus spoke the Truth.  He blessed the poor.  He healed the sick.  He even raised the dead.  He died on a cross for us, lived again, and came back long enough to tell us to love one another.  That's religion.
