Jesus Christ, when asked by His disciples what shall be the signs of His coming and of the end of the world, referred to perhaps the greatest sign which goes virtually unnoticed,i.e. deception (Matthew 24:4-5, 11, 24).
He further warned about a power, identified as the Abomination of Desolation, that would manifest itself as the savior of the world just before His return to planet earth (Matthew 24:15). Paul calls it the man of sin who seeks to take the place of God in men's hearts and in God's church (2 Thessalonians 2:3-5). The Protestant Reformers called it the antiChrist entity of Bible prophecy.
Pope Francis boldly confirms that characterization. He declared, "No one becomes Christian on his or her own! Is that clear?...There are those who believe they can maintain a personal, direct and immediate relationship with Jesus Christ outside the communion and the mediation of the Church. These are dangerous and harmful temptations" (Vatican City, Wednesday, 25 June 2014). Find out more.
Men have debated, discussed, and even denied who Jesus is. But who is this Jesus, anyway? Was He just a good man? Was He simply a charismatic and influential religious teacher? Was He God as He claimed and His followers believed Him to be? Was He a fraud and cosmic trickster? Or is He truly whom He claimed to be, the Only Savior of the world?
Then comes someone's idea of the Ecumenical Movement. It is a clarion call in the religious world for all religions to come together for the purpose of fostering world peace. Recognizing the dire and profound conflicts, rifts, and mistrust existing among the several faith factions, the promoters of this coming-together movement feel that greater peace can be achieved if all religions become united. Essentially, their argument is that if each faith group, by casting aside their peculiar points of doctrines, can indeed unite and usher in a season of universal peace. They conclude that, at the very core of spirituality, they all worship the same God and would thus find salvation through whomever each group recognizes as its god.
But, this line of thinking places the sincere Christian in a real predicament; for Jesus Christ, the Founder of their religion, declared quite emphatically, "I Am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no one cometh unto the Father but by Me (John 14:6). Find out here who Jesus truly is.
While others rushed to the lifeboats as the ship sank, millionaire Benjamin Guggenheim stoically sat sipping brandy with his personal secretary Victor Giglio, declaring they were 'prepared to go down like gentlemen'.
It was one of the most haunting tales to emerge from the Titanic disaster. American businessman. A native of Philadelphia and son of mining industrialist Meyer Guggenheim. First class passenger who perished at sea in the sinking of the RMS Titanic. Faced with impending death Mr. Guggenheim and his valet surrendered their lifebelts to a ship's steward and returned to their cabin suites to change into formal evening attire. Guggenheim is best remembered for making the remarks "We've dressed in our best, and are prepared to go down like gentlemen" and "Please tell my wife I did my best in doing my duty." Mr. Guggenheim and his valet were last seen seated in deck chairs sipping brandy and smoking cigars. (bio by: Nils M. Solsvik Jr.)
Christopher Moody, the brother of James Moody, the only junior officer to die on the Titanic, was sent a letter by the ship's owners asking for the equivalent of $3,000 to have his body sent home to Scarborough.
At 7:22 a.m., Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, dies from a bullet wound inflicted the night before by John Wilkes Booth, an actor and Confederate sympathizer. The president’s death came only six days after Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his massive army at Appomattox, effectively ending the American Civil War.
Booth, who remained in the North during the war despite his Confederate sympathies, initially plotted to capture President Lincoln and take him to Richmond, the Confederate capital. However, on March 20, 1865, the day of the planned kidnapping, the president failed to appear at the spot where Booth and his six fellow conspirators lay in wait. Two weeks later, Richmond fell to Union forces. In April, with Confederate armies near collapse across the South, Booth hatched a desperate plan to save the Confederacy.
Learning that Lincoln was to attend Laura Keene’s acclaimed performance in Our American Cousin at Ford’s Theater on April 14, Booth plotted the simultaneous assassination of Lincoln, Vice President Andrew Johnson, and Secretary of State William H. Seward. By murdering the president and two of his possible successors, Booth and his conspirators hoped to throw the U.S. government into a paralyzing disarray. MORE

On this day in 1865, John Wilkes Booth, an actor and Confederate sympathizer, fatally shoots President Abraham Lincoln at a play at Ford’s Theater in Washington, D.C. The attack came only five days after Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his massive army at Appomattox Court House, Virginia, effectively ending the American Civil War.
Booth, a Maryland native born in 1838, who remained in the North during the war despite his Confederate sympathies, initially plotted to capture President Lincoln and take him to Richmond, the Confederate capital. However, on March 20, 1865, the day of the planned kidnapping, the president failed to appear at the spot where Booth and his six fellow conspirators lay in wait. Two weeks later, Richmond fell to Union forces.
In April, with Confederate armies near collapse across the South, Booth hatched a desperate plan to save the Confederacy. Learning that Lincoln was to attend a performance of “Our American Cousin” at Ford’s Theater on April 14, Booth masterminded the simultaneous assassination of Lincoln, Vice President Andrew Johnson and Secretary of State William H. Seward. By murdering the president and two of his possible successors, Booth and his conspirators hoped to throw the U.S. government into disarray.
On the evening of April 14, conspirator Lewis T. Powell burst into Secretary of State Seward’s home, seriously wounding him and three others, while George A. Atzerodt, assigned to Vice President Johnson, lost his nerve and fled. Meanwhile, just after 10 p.m., Booth entered Lincoln’s private theater box unnoticed and shot the president with a single bullet in the back of his head. Slashing an army officer who rushed at him, Booth leapt to the stage and shouted “Sic semper tyrannis! [Thus always to tyrants]–the South is avenged!” Although Booth broke his leg jumping from Lincoln’s box, he managed to escape Washington on horseback.
The president, mortally wounded, was carried to a lodging house opposite Ford’s Theater. About 7:22 a.m. the next morning, Lincoln, age 56, died–the first U.S. president to be assassinated. MORE
A sudden crash during a drag race Saturday killed veteran driver Ronnie Davis, 66, and seriously injured a journalist.
Davis died on Sunday of his injuries, while photographer and writer Ian Tocher, 55, was injured and underwent surgery; he is now recovering, the Associated Press reported.
At the time of the crash, Ronnie was driving a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette during a qualifying run at the PDRA Spring Nationals at the Rockingham Dragway in North Carolina, the Richmond County Daily Journal reported.
He had just completed the final run when, as the AP described it, the Corvette “turned left and shot across the track in front rival Mark Malcuit’s car. Davis’ car cleared the right-side guardwall and barrel-rolled.”
At one point, Davis’ car shot into the right lane before being launched into the air and above a retaining wall. According to Bleacher Report, Ronnie finished the lap in lap “in 4.130 seconds at 178.19 miles per hour” before the wreck.

We are told in both Exodus 12:40-41 and in Galatians 3:17 that the Israelites left Egypt after 430 years. But then we are told in both Genesis 15:13 and in Acts 7:6 that they would leave Egypt after only 400 years (NOT 430 years)! Is this a contradiction? It certainly appears so. But it is NOT!
To solve the mystery of this supposed contradiction we must first go to the 15th chapter of Genesis. In this particular chapter God confirms the covenant that He had previously made with Abraham while he was still living in Ur. Then God tells Abraham, “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years” (Gen. 15:13).
For many years I thought the above verse meant that the Israelites would be slaves in the land of Egypt for 400 years. But that is NOT what this verse is saying at all! The whole point of this Scripture is not to tell Abraham how long his descendants would be slaves in Egypt, but to tell him how long it would be before they finally left Egypt (to begin making their way back to the land of Canaan). In other words, this verse should read: “...and they will afflict them until four hundred years.” In even plainer terms, what this Scripture is saying is that the Israelites would leave Egypt in 400 years—that’s 400 years from the time that God made this statement to Abraham! So why does the Bible say 430 years in Exodus 12:40-41 and Galatians 3:17? Because 30 years had passed since God first made the promises to Abraham—while he was still living in the land of Ur—that’s why!
In Galatians 3:17-18 we are told that the law (the ten commandments—which were given just a few weeks after the Israelites left Egypt) came 430 years after the promises were made to Abraham! Please note—it does NOT say that the law was given 430 years after the Israelites arrived in Egypt. It says that the law came 430 years after the promises were made to Abraham! That’s 430 years after the promises were FIRST made to Abraham—while he was still living in Ur of the Chaldeans! It all fits.
There are untold millions today that call themselves Christians. But how many know what it truly means to be a Christian? When compared with the Jesus of the Bible, the Jesus we generally hear about today is a distorted representation of the reality. Jesus of the Bible has been given a makeover that would make Him unrecognizable to the early church. His love is being presented as acceptance for every abominable sin. His grace is proclaimed as a license to break His law. Judgement and justice is virtually absent.
Yes indeed, Jesus loves everybody and His grace is both amazing and abundant beyond measure. The Jesus of the Bible hates sin, which is the breaking of His law (1 John 3:4). But the popular Jesus has done away with His law and His grace becomes a pass to practice sin.
Consequently, millions upon millions have been deceived into accepting a jesus who saves people in their sins. But the real Jesus invites you to follow in His footsteps (1 Peter 2:21-23). Follow your Perfect Example.
It’s equipped with advanced-driver assistance systems.
General Motors Friday made news for the high price it paid for a startup that develops self-driving technology. It forked over more than $1 billion for Cruise Automation, which most recently was valued at $90 million.
Honda, meanwhile, is making waves for the relatively puny price tag it’s attached to its new Civic LX Sedan that can be purchased with autonomous driving capability. The vehicle costs $20,440, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The Civic LX can be equipped with advanced-driver assistance systems, known as ADAS, which keeps a car in its lane and allows for automatic braking and cruise control. Automakers shy away from characterizing ADAS-equipped cars as “self-driving” for fear of raising questions about liability if the system makes a mistake. Nevertheless, in a new Civic, a 25-mile drive can be made with the driver’s hands off the wheel and his foot off the gas so long as lane markings are visible and another vehicle is in front of the car, according to the WSJ. The Civic can sense when it should slow down, veer, or brake.

West Virginia looks perfect for Donald Trump: a struggling working-class state filled with the types of voters who have backed him elsewhere and could deliver one of his biggest victories.
But a sweep there might not matter. That’s because as many as 34 delegates — the entire contingent — may be free to back whomever they want at the Republican National Convention.
Much the same is true in Pennsylvania, home to a hotly contested April 26 primary, where there are 54 uncommitted delegates. Other states and territories, from Colorado to Wyoming to Guam, will also send squads of unbound representatives.
These are the swing voters of the GOP nominating contest, nearly 200 activists and elected leaders beholden to nothing except their personal judgment and empowered to make or break candidacies.
If Trump arrives at the July convention in Cleveland just shy of the 1,237 delegates required to secure the nomination outright, these unbound delegates could decide to push him over the top — or force a contested convention with successive rounds of balloting. MORE
Today is Firstfruits. This is the day after the last Day of Passover Week (or the Feast of Unleavened Bread, a 7 day Festival of God) Today, a special Sabbath starts the count to Pentecost (50 days from today).
The firstfruits of God's plan are those who are called now, in this age, and are having their minds and attitudes changed to become like Jesus Christ through God's Spirit working within them.
The apostle James noted that God has "brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures [i.e., of those He's created]" (James 1:18).
Paul well understood that those called and converted in this age between man's creation and Christ's second coming are the firstfruits of God's plan for the salvation of humanity. He referred to several first-century Christians as the firstfruits of God's calling in specific locations (Romans 16:5; 1 Corinthians 16:15). Looking ahead to the resurrection of those who remain faithful to their calling, he said, "We also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption [that is, full rights of sonship], the redemption of our body" (Romans 8:23).
However, the firstfruits of God's plan, those who are called now, find themselves in a vastly different situation from that of those who will follow in the later spiritual harvest period.
Jesus said that those who are His followers in this age are not to be "of the world, just as I am not of the world" (John 17:16). They are called out of the world and are expected to develop the character of Christ, while the rest of mankind is deceived (Revelation 12:9) and following values abhorrent to Christ (1 John 2:15-17 ).
Never have you seen indicated on tombstones that some of the bodies there were only the physical relics of souls which are now screaming in hell fire!
Yet, such is the belief of millions who confidently assume the teaching of a heavenly home, or an ever-burning hell.
No matter how sinfully the recently departed might have lived, many a pastor seems able to comfort distraught loved ones with the thought that, at the very last moment, cantankerous and crusty old Uncle Claude somehow made it through the pearly gates!
For over twenty-eight years, I have offered a certified cashier's check for $10,000 to anyone who can come up with the words "immortal soul," "When we get to heaven," "I will see you in heaven," and "We go to heaven when we die."
Not in all those twenty-eight years, with millions hearing my words, has a single person been able to claim the certified cashier's check for $10,000!
If You have been reading The Plain Truth and Our YOUR HEALTH TODAY, you already know this:
Vegetarianism over generations can result in genetic mutations which increase the risk of heart disease and cancer.
Researchers found a long-term vegetarian diet means populations are more likely to carry DNA that makes them vulnerable to inflammation.
The mutation is believed to make it easier for vegetarians to absorb necessary fatty acids from plants, but also boosts their production of arachidonic acid, which increases inflammatory disease and cancer.
Over generations, a vegetarian diet can result in genetic mutations which increase the risk of heart disease and cancer, scientists claim (file photo)
This, coupled with a diet rich in vegetable oils, means the mutated gene turns fatty acids into arachidonic acid.
The problem is also worsened because the mutation obstructs the production of Omega 3, which protects against heart disease.
This is an increasing issue given the shift in people’s diets away from fish and nuts, which contain valuable Omega 3, to vegetable oils, which contain the unhealthier Omega 6.
I have listened to Merle Haggard since I was a boy. I liked rock and roll, but grew up in a total country and western household. Listened to Hank Williams (and that is SR) and Ernest Tubb; but one star I really did like was the early songs of Merle Haggard. So back in the day when I would listen to Garner Ted Armstrong on the radio, he would frequently mention that Haggard was one of his best friends. After Garner Ted died, I came across some interviews with Haggard where he talked about his friendship with Ted, and was especially shocked to find out that Merle's largest hit, was in fact inspired by a Garner Ted radio show.
According to Merle Haggard, his 1969 hit, "Oakie From Muskogee," his biggest hit ever, started out as a joke and was written over a period of time, but the total time spent writing the song was probably no more than twenty minutes!
Merle said, "We were on the road, coming out of Arkansas and the bus passed a sign that read "Muskogee-19 miles." And somebody, I don't remember who, said "I bet they don"t smoke marijuana in Muskogee." Everybody thought that was funny. Roy Burris who was our drummer at the time - and I - started adding to that. Several days later, I was listening to a Garner Ted Armstrong radio program and he talked about the smaller colleges just didn't have the problems like drugs and riots-all those things you heard about happening at the larger colleges."
The two were fast friends, and spent time hunting together in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. Garner Ted would often talk about their friendship and how Haggard's songs reflected the good and bad about American middle class society. He once joked about Haggard's song "If we can make it through December" about a married couple that basically was always on the verge of breaking up - an American moral dilemma, especially worrisome in the 1970's.
For his part, Haggard had said of Armstrong, “He was like a professor to me. What education I have, I owe to him."
Haggard said after he heard of the death of Garner Ted Armstrong, "after Johnny [Cash]died, I lost a real close friend in Garner Ted Armstrong. There was a period where I didn't even want to watch the news to see who else was gone."
Haggard's manager, Frank Mull, said Haggard died at home in Palo Cedro, California, of pneumonia. The death came just a few days after the singer canceled his April concert dates after suffering from a recurring bout of double pneumonia. In a statement issued by his publicist last week Merle said: 'I want to thank my fans for their prayers and well wishes. 'I hope to be back on the road in May, but I'm taking it one day at a time.'
The statement said that his doctors wanted him to take one more month off the road to rest and recover. The singer of hits like Okie From Muskogee, Mama Tried and Workin' Man Blues had also cancelled dates in February and March. He had a battle with lung cancer in 2008 but despite illness and his advancing age kept up an ambitious touring schedule. Indeed, his 2015 tour schedule saw him perform in over 30 cities.
RIP Merle. It's a blessing, and a good sign from God to die on your birthday!
Sugar is known to be a major contributor to fatty liver disease. And yet, a new study revealed the best way to combat sugar – is with sugar. A natural form, called trehalose, prevents fructose from entering the liver, scientists at Washington University School of Medicine said. Trehalose also triggers a housekeeping process in liver cells that gets rid of excess fat buildup. The sugar can be found in certain plants and fungi – including shiitake and oyster mushrooms. Experts said the finding could lead to new treatments and prevention for fatty liver disease.
The key to fighting fatty liver disease - which occurs when sugar fructose enters the liver - is sugar, scientists revealed. A natural sugar called trehalose prevents fructose from entering the liver and gets rid of excess fat Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is closely linked to obesity – and affects nearly 25 per cent of people in the US. The disease is believed to develop as the liver works hard to process dietary sugar – especially fructose – that is found both naturally in fruit but also in high-fructose corn syrup, used to sweeten soda, for example. The body stores fructose in the liver – as fats called triglycerides.
But in severe cases, the fat builds up to toxic levels that may require a liver transplant. There is currently no drug treatment for the disease. However, weight loss has been proven to reduce the buildup of fat in the liver.
WHAT IS FATTY LIVER DISEASE?
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease occurs when there is an accumulation of fat in the liver of people who drink little or no alcohol.The disease is common and, for most people, causes no signs and symptoms and no complications. However, in some people with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, the fat that accumulates can cause inflammation and scarring in the liver. This more serious form of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is sometimes called nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. At its most severe, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease can progress to liver failure.
The disease usually has no signs or symptoms, but when symptoms do appear, they include:
Pain in the upper right abdomen
The team of researchers investigated the effect of trehalose in mice with fatty liver disease.Study author Dr Brian DeBosch said: ‘In general, if you feed a mouse a high-sugar diet, it gets a fatty liver.‘We found that if you feed a mouse a diet high in fructose plus provide drinking water that contains three per cent trehalose, you completely block the development of fatty liver.
‘Those mice also had lower body weights at the end of the study and lower levels of circulating cholesterol, fatty acid and triglycerides.’
Trehalose is a naturally-occurring sugar that is found in plants and insects.It consists of two glucose molecules bound together.The natural sugar has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for human consumption. But, Dr DeBosch cautions that more research should be completed before humans ingest the sugar.
He said: ‘I can’t recommend it to my patients yet.
‘We know the mice that received drinking water with three per cent trehalose lost weight, and we suspect that weight loss was due to loss of fat, but we can’t be certain that’s the only effect.
‘We need more studies to make sure they were not losing bone or muscle mass.’
However, he warned people should avoid foods with added fructose – particularly sugar-sweetened beverages.
As Wisconsinites head for the polls, our Beltway elites are almost giddy. For they foresee a Badger State bashing for Donald Trump, breaking his momentum toward the Republican nomination.
Should The Donald fall short of the delegates needed to win on the first ballot, 1,237, there is growing certitude that he will be stopped. First by Ted Cruz; then, perhaps, by someone acceptable to the establishment, which always likes to have two of its own in the race
But this city of self-delusion should realize there is no going back for America. For, whatever his stumbles of the last two weeks, Trump has helped to unleash the mightiest force of the 21st century: nationalism.
Transnationalism and globalism are moribund.
First among the issues on which Trump has triumphed – “We will build the wall – and Mexico will pay for it!” – is border security.
Republican candidates who failed to parrot Trump on illegal immigration were among the first casualties.
For that is where America is, and that is where the West is.

There seems to be no stopping Donald Trump. He has obliterated just about all of his politically correct opponents. Much has been said and written about his inability to become the president of the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave, but nothing nor no one has been able to slow his growing popularity with a significant swath of the American people.
His sound bite refrain, 'Let's Make America Great Again' has certainly captivated the minds of many. But the question must be asked, what does he really mean and with whom is it resonating so powerfully?
Unstoppable Donald Trump
In 2007, housing prices sunk to a catastrophic low and the housing market was about to collapse. But today, it is at an all time high. Prices have risen and the market is robust. At that time, the unemployment rate was 12%. Today is at less than 5%. Who can forget the banking and auto industries that were imploding at a faster rate than the now defunct French Supersonic Transport passenger aircraft. Back then, the stock market was dropping precipitously and the body bags from Iraq were a staple on the daily news.
America is still the world's #1 Superpower. It remains the strongest economy on the planet. Sure we don't have a perfect, problem-free scenario; but America is already great.
The comparison has been made between the Donald and Hitler---same emotional rhetoric, void of substance or reason. They both preyed on people's fears, prejudices, and insecurities. If Donald makes it to the White House, will he complete the comparison by eliminating those he deems unacceptable?

I have never voted in my entire life and I am not about to start now. Just about every single politician we have ever had has been corrupt. Even “Honest Abe” (i.e. Abraham Lincoln) was only elected president because he bribed the delegates at the National Republican convention.
So how about Donald Trump? Well, he does have one thing going for him: he is not a politician! And so far it appears that he is not bought (though I'm not at all convinced he won't someday take "legal" bribes just like all the rest of the politicians). Does he lie just like a politician? Absolutely! Does he say a lot of foolish things at times? Absolutely! Does he sometimes say things that are immature and downright childish? Absolutely! Does he sometimes say things that are offensive and irresponsible at times? Absolutely! Is he (if he becomes president) going to "make America great again"? Absolutely NOT!
Was it General McArthur who said (right after WWII) that the problems of the world are spiritual in nature. He said that if we want to solve the world's problems we need to change our hearts, both individually and collectively. And how true those words are! But unfortunately that is never going to happen. This world is bent on evil and things are getting worse and worse with each and every passing day. As the Bible states: "The heart is deceitful above all else and terribly wicked. Who can understand it?"
The ONLY one who could possibly change this country (as well as the rest of the world) for the better is Jesus Christ. Right now (as the Bible makes abundantly clear) Satan is running the show and he is not about to let up on deceiving mankind. He (along with his demonic cohorts) are very busy every second of every day inspiring humanity to do wicked things (not the least of which is savagely slaughtering over a million precious little babies each and every year in our nation alone). And things are only going to get worse, much worse, until we find ourselves on the brink of the total annihilation of the human race ("cosmocide") in the soon-coming third world war. But the good news is this: just as we are about to destroy ourselves (and the planet as well) Jesus Christ returns to earth. And He WILL stop the madness for once and for all, as Satan will be dethroned and removed. Christ will then rule in righteousness, love, power, and wisdom. The world will then burst forth in joy, peace, and prosperity. But until that day, things are prophesied to get worse and worse.
So would Trump (if elected president) be able to bring about the change that so many of us desperately desire? Of course not! The lies and deceptions will continue. The politicians will continue to be bribed ("legally" and "illegally") and to submit to their big corporate masters. Islamic terrorists will continue to savagely massacre scores of innocent people. Helpless little babies by the millions will continue to have their limbs ripped apart and their precious little bodies sucked out of their mother's wombs (all in the name of "pro-choice"—pro-murder actually!). Morals will continue to get even worse and worse (very similar to the ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah) with ever increasing perversions. More and more people will continue to reject God and instead have faith in the foolish evolutionary hypothesis. And on and on and on it goes.
So would Donald Trump be able to bring about real positive change? Absolutely not! Besides many of his other shortcomings, he is terribly lacking in character, which is one of the most important things for a president to have. But unfortunately, as bad as he is, he's probably the best candidate that we have (which shows just how bad things have gotten and how low we have sunk!).
Bernie Sanders is perhaps the only candidate who doesn't lie on a continuous basis. Plus, you know exactly what you are getting with him as he doesn't play games and try to deceive the American public. (Hillary "Let Me Tell You A Lot More Lies" Clinton of course is an expert at this, and this is why she has a great chance of being elected, as she is too clever in her deceptive ways for much of the American public.) Unfortunately, Bernie Sanders is a Democrat, which means he is in favor of the barbaric butchering of millions of little babies, so there is no way I could possibly support him (or any other pro-murder candidate). Plus of course he has socialist (if not even communist) leanings (and has even praised Fidel Castro as well as at least one other communist dictator). Plus of course he's in favor of stealing from the rich (as he said he want's to tax them 90%) and giving to the poor (free food, free housing, free cell phones, free college, free medical, free sex changes, etc.—what's next—free pornography and free sex for everyone?). (But of course none of this is really free. The federal government is about 18 trillion dollars in the red, and it’s only a matter of time before we collapse from bankruptcy.)
But the best thing about the possibility of Donald Trump being elected president is this: If he becomes president the American public would essentially being telling politicians: "Kiss My XXX!!!" Which of course is why so many people are supporting him! They are sick and tired of the BS that takes place in this country each and every day from our elected corrupt habitually-lying officials. And they have said "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! I'M MAD AS HELL AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!! LET'S SEE HOW YOU LIKE THIS—I'M VOTING FOR DONALD TRUMP!!!" And that’s what it’s all about. — Mike Exton (3-31-16) TheBibleComesAlive@gmailcom, www.TheBibleComesAlive.com,

As Jesus began His ministry, speaking in the synagogue in His hometown of Nazareth on the He declared, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord...This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears" (Luke 4:16-21).
