Jesus loves you – until He doesn't

An Old 1970's Joke: "The Good News... 'Jesus is coming..'  The Bad News:  'He's Pissed!' And in reality HE IS!

Here's an interchange with Jesus, recorded by the prophet Isaiah well before Jesus was born or the New Testament existed:

"Why are your clothes so red, as from treading out the grapes?

"I have trodden the winepress alone. No one was there to help me. In my wrath I have trodden my enemies like grapes. In my fury I trampled my foes. It is their blood you see upon my clothes. For the time has come for me to avenge my people to redeem them from the hands of their oppressors. I looked but no one came to help them; I was amazed and appalled. So I executed vengeance alone; unaided, I meted out judgment. I crushed the heathen nations in my anger and made them stagger and fall to the ground." (Isaiah 63:2-6 TLB)

We live in a world that is growing more demoralized every day at the hands of evil men and women. By hook or by crook (I guess we could say Big Media or Big Tech today) they occupy positions of power in most governments.

The limits to power placed upon Western-style governments by their constitutions are not regarded as limits at all – just niddling annoyances to be worked around with fancy dances and outright lies.

Truth as most of us have known it no longer exists, except as a water boy for the narrative. Government is no longer employed to uphold the law; the law is employed to uphold the government, regardless of how corrupt or evil it may be. We all saw that very clearly during Donald Trump's first term in office, with much of the government straining to destroy him.

When the Wuhan virus emerged, churches were among the first institutions attacked by politicians during their newfound flu-mergency. It took nearly two years and a U.S. Supreme Court ruling affirming that the First Amendment means just what it says: Government has no authority over churches.

Why were churches attacked so quickly and shut down? Because the church, even in its broken and pacified condition, terrifies the political left and the kingdom of darkness they worship.

God frequently describes himself as long-suffering. He is, and for that all of us can be eternally grateful. But He is still the only God in the universe, the only Creator, the only One who sits on the Throne, and the only One who in righteousness executes judgment against those who attack his sovereignty. There is no appeal from His rulings. There is no escape from His justice.

The Apostle Paul – who was certainly in a position to know – emphasized that humanity is in a spiritual war against powers and principalities that are opposed to God's rule (Ephesians 6:12). Paul urged those of us who bear the name of Christ to employ the power we obtained at the Cross to fight against the powers and principalities of evil. Yet, how many of us who have attended churches all our lives know how to do this?

Today, everyone is "woke" over made up, imagined grievances that have emerged from the pit of hell. Yet the pit of hell's greatest fear is that the Christian church will become "woke" to the power against evil that Jesus gave it at the Cross. The powers of darkness quake at the thought of an awakened church, filled with believers who know who they are, in Christ.

Jesus does not "need" us to act. That's why I opened with the passage from Isaiah. But He would very much like us to act, because that would be a sign of maturity; that we didn't just sit in church pews our entire lives, listening to elementary-level messages that we thought we had reserved for the kiddies. Perhaps there are churches out there that would like to become "woke" in a good way, as in a Great Awakening. This might be a good time for churches to take up their own discussion among their local body.

I opened with Isaiah 63 for a reason. Many Christian churches seem to discount God moving in any significant way in our era. Perhaps I misunderstand, but today's churches allow for God to move in the lives of individuals, but I hear very little about God moving among nations. Do churches today even believe that God is able to exert his will over our technological oligarchs?

I think we are much, much closer to divine intervention across the world than many imagine. I think it will occur at the national level. God operates on a much larger chessboard than we can possibly imagine. Our job is to cooperate with Him when He moves. Can Jesus do it himself? Isaiah 63 speaks of both nations and individuals. I don't think He is going to be handing out free passes for those in power to continue worshiping powers and principalities. Remember, Jesus is the Captain of the Angel Armies. If He ends up doing this, it's not going to be for the faint of heart. A functioning Church would never have let things get to this point.

The Latest Hollywood Murder Coverup

Guns in Hollywood 101: NO REAL GUN IS ALLOWED ON THE SET!  This is more of a Columbo Murder Mystery than an accident!

Why WAS a gun on Alec Baldwin movie set loaded with live ammo? Mystery over deadly chain

The deadly chain of events on set that led to Alec Baldwin being handed a gun with live ammunition and accidentally shooting and killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins have become clearer after it emerged last night the actor fired a live round, believing it to be a blank. The tragic accident came days after Baldwin's stunt double also fired off bullets on the production's set on Saturday after being told the gun was 'cold', a phrase used to signal to cast and crew the gun is not loaded with live or blank ammunition and is safe to fire for the scene. New details of safety issues on set emerged as the production's armorer was named by a search warrant released on Friday as 24-year-old Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the daughter of legendary Hollywood armorer and firearms consultant Thell Reed, and revealed she was leading firearms on a film set for only the second time. Baldwin accidentally killed Hutchins when he aimed and fired towards a camera operated by the cinematographer, striking her in the chest and director Joel Souza in the shoulder. After firing the shot, Baldwin was heard saying: 'In all my years, I've never been handed a hot gun.' Experts yesterday told DailyMail.com safety on set is usually extremely tight with live bullets never used in filming and it remains unclear why a firearm loaded with live ammunition was on the Rust set at all.

'He's supposed to check guns. He's responsible for what happened': Audio of 911 Rust calls

Audio recordings from the 911 calls made from the set of Rust have shown panicked attempts to get ambulances on the scene. A cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins (top right), was killed and the film's director Joel Souza (bottom right) injured when the star of the film, Alec Baldwin (top left) pulled the trigger. Baldwin has said he is devastated by the accident. In the 911 calls, Mamie Mitchell, a script supervisor, urgently asks for an ambulance. She then blames the assistant director for his handling of the guns.


20 Years Ago: The West Warwick Nightclub Fire Killed 100 people

 

The Station nightclub owners claim 'sound foam' was 'cheap packing foam' that helped fire

Jeffrey and Michael Derderian (upper right) claim that 'sound foam' installed in West Warwick club was actually 'cheap packing foam' that helped the deadly fire spread, causing 100 deaths and over 200 injuries, the brothers said in their first public interview on the incident with 48 Hours. 'We wanted the full story to come out, not just some of it, and that for people who want to, come to their own conclusion on what happened that night,' Jeffrey Derderian told 48 Hours ' Jim Axelrod, a three-minute snippet of which was released on Thursday. 'We understand the enormity of what happened. People suffered enormously,' Jeffrey told the Boston Globe in a separate interview prior to the premiere of their upcoming 48 Hours segment. 'We don't want sympathy, but it never leaves us.'  


Salmonella outbreak in multiple states linked to onions

The more we depend on foreign countries for our food, the more we will be poisoned...  Joke of the Day? ORGANIC CHINESE FOODS at Walmart! (Yes, true statement- but still a joke).

 

Authored by Mimi Nguyen Ly via The Epoch Times,

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a food safety alert on Wednesday regarding an outbreak of Salmonella infections in multiple states it says has been linked to whole onions.

At least 652 people from 37 states have reported sick, 129 of whom have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported, the CDC announced.

The onions—whole red, white, and yellow varieties—were all imported from Chihuahua, Mexico, and distributed across the United States by ProSource Inc., according to epidemiological and traceback data, per the CDC.

“The outbreak strain was identified in a sample of cilantro and lime from a restaurant condiment cup collected from a sick person’s home,” the CDC alert reads.

“The sick person also reported that the cup contained onions, though none were left in the cup when it was tested.”

About 75 percent of the sick people who were interviewed said that they ate or possibly ate raw onions or dishes containing raw onions before they became sick, and several ill people reported eating at the same restaurants, which the CDC said indicates “they may be part of illness clusters.”

Investigators determined that ProSource Inc. supplied onions to many of the restaurants where sick individuals had eaten, including the restaurant where the condiment cup was collected. The investigators are now working to see whether other onions or suppliers are also linked to the outbreak.

The CDC advises people who have unlabelled whole onions at home to throw them away. If the onions are known to have been imported from Chihuahua, Mexico, and distributed by ProSource Inc., people should not eat them and businesses should not sell or serve them, the agency advised.

Furthermore, people are urged to wash surfaces and containers that may have touched the onions, using hot soapy water or a dishwasher.

People who eat food contaminated with the Salmonella bacteria can develop diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramping within 6 hours to 6 days, the CDC warned. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. Most people recover without treatment, but sometimes cases can be severe and warrant hospitalization. Severe illness is more likely in children younger than 5, adults 65 and older, and people with compromised immune systems.

The CDC urges people to contact a doctor if they have severe symptoms.

 


Leaked contracts show Pfizer 'bullying' governments

More proof that these worthless vaccines are scams to bilk taxpayers out of BILLIONS! Maybe Trillions!

Leaked Contracts Show Pfizer “Bullying” GovernmentsCoolcaesar/Wikimedia CommonsPfizer World Headquarters in Manhattan

The COVID shot developed by once-obscure German company BioNTech in cooperation with American pharmaceutical giant Pfizer has proven a business success. First to receive Emergency Use Authorization in the United States, the Pfizer shot has become America’s most popular COVID-19 vaccine, with more than 240 million doses administered. Globally, it also ranks number one in terms of usage: As of October 20, more than 405 million people have received Pfizer shot.

No wonder the jab has already become the most lucrative drug of all time, with sales expected to double in 2022.

But the rapid proliferation of the shot, under contracts negotiated between the company and national governments, has been made possible thanks to Pfizer employing a heavy-handed approach that includes “bullying governments” by barring them from “discussing the agreements without Pfizer’s approval,” and demanding “unilateral control to make key decisions and securing an intellectual property waiver for itself,” according to the report released on Tuesday by consumer advocacy group Public Citizen.

While supplying the world’s most-sought after shot, only five out of 73 formalized deals between Pfizer and national governments have been formally published. And even those contracts that were made public contained “significant redactions,” Public Citizen found. The group has been able to obtain several leaked, unredacted contracts that “offer a rare glimpse into the power one pharmaceutical corporation has gained to silence governments, throttle supply, shift risk and maximize profits in the worst public health crisis in a century.”

Public Citizen claims there are several “unfair and abusive” tactics that Pfizer employs in its contracts:

1. The company “reserves the right to silence governments”

The Brazilian government was put in an impossible position by Pfizer insisting on a number of “problematic” terms that Brazil was forced to accept in the midst of the COVID pandemic. The terms included Brazil waiving sovereign immunity, imposing no penalties on Pfizer for late deliveries, and an agreement to resolve disputes under a secret private arbitration under the laws of the United States.

In addition to that, the contract shows that the Brazilian government is prohibited from making “any public announcement concerning the existence, subject matter or terms of [the] Agreement” or even commenting on its relationship with Pfizer without receiving the prior written consent of the company.

A similar provision is included in the Pfizer contract with the European Commission and the U.S. government, but in those cases, the obligation to obtain another party’s agreement to publicly comment on the relation applies to both parties.

Traveling around seeing the beauty Florida

Florida holiday guide: The Sunshine State is bursting with attractions, from Miami to Key

Do you think of Florida as just one big theme park? Think again. With secret islands and sweeping expanses of wilderness, it's a place where you can really get back to nature, and where you're more likely to see a pelican or heron than a cartoon duck. Not only that, the Sunshine State has a wealth of historic towns and cultural cities, and miles of sandy shores. And as UK tourists are allowed to return from next month, it makes the perfect place for winter sun. Pictured: Seven Mile Bridge (top left), Captiva Island (top right), Alligator Alley (bottom right), Sarasota (bottom left), and Crystal River (inset).


From the Plain Truth RED LETTER EDITION of the Bible, where all words of Jesus are in Red in both OLD and New Testaments! . . .

Jesus

image from m.media-amazon.com
 
 
John 1:1 is actually predates Genesis 1:1! John 1:1 explains who God really is that we read about in Genesis. We learn here that Jesus is the WORD or spokesman of the Godhead (Elohim) and that He and the Father make up the Godhead. We learn many things in the Gospel (Good News) about Jesus from the pen of John. We learn that Jesus was the “I AM” of Exodus who spoke to Moses from the burning bush. We learn that the only God that mankind has ever seen is Jesus, and that nobody but he has ever seen the Father God. Without the knowledge of the Good News of John, we can never fully comprehend the Old Testament scripture.. This is why I suggest that the book of John be read BEFORE reading Genesis for the first time. Jamieson writes that John “was the younger of the two sons of Zebedee, a fisherman on the Sea of Galilee, who resided at Bethsaida, where were born Peter and Andrew his brother, and Philip also. His mother's name was Salome, who, though not without her imperfections ( Matthew 20:20-28 the Lord on one of His preaching circuits through Galilee, ministering to His bodily wants; who followed Him to the cross, and bought sweet spices to anoint Him after His burial, but, on bringing them to the grave, on the morning of the First Day of the week, found their loving services gloriously superseded by His resurrection ere they arrived. His father, Zebedee, appears to have been in good circumstances, owning a vessel of his own and having hired servants ( Mark 1:20 Evangelist, whose occupation was that of a fisherman with his father, was beyond doubt a disciple of the Baptist, and one of the two who had the first interview with Jesus. He was called while engaged at his secular occupation ( Matthew 4:21 Matthew 4:22 ( Luke 5:1-11 ( Matthew 10:2 DA COSTA calls him--and he and James his brother were named in the native tongue by Him who knew the heart, "Boanerges," which the Evangelist Mark ( Mark 3:17 doubt from their natural vehemence of character. They and Peter constituted that select triumvirate of whom But the highest honor bestowed on this disciple was his being admitted to the bosom place with his Lord at the table, as "the disciple whom Jesus loved" ( John 13:23 ; 20:2 ; John 21:7 John 20:24 him by the dying Redeemer the care of His mother ( John 19:26 John 19:27 There can be no reasonable doubt that this distinction was due to a sympathy with His own spirit and mind on the part of John which the all-penetrating Eye of their common Master beheld in none of the rest; and although this was probably never seen either in his life or in his ministry by his fellow apostles, it is brought out wonderfully in his writings, which, in Christ-like spirituality, heavenliness, and love, surpass, we may freely say, all the other inspired writings.”
 
As to the date of this Gospel, the arguments for its having been composed before the destruction of Jerusalem (though relied on by some superior critics) are of the slenderest nature; such as the expression in John 5:2 &c.; there being no allusion to Peter's martyrdom as having occurred according to the prediction in John 21:18 to require mention. That it was composed long after the destruction of Jerusalem, and after the decease of all the other apostles, is next to certain, though the precise time cannot be determined. Probably it was before his banishment, however; and if we date it between the years 90 and 94, we shall probably be close to the truth.
John is the oldest surviving member of the twelve and his message is about the Divinity of Christ, his preexistence as THE LORD and the message that the LAW can only be understood with its greatest cornerstone--- LOVE. Love covers sins, and the Law of God is LOVE.
 
John 1
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God (The Father), and the Word was God (Elohim-The God Family).
WORD- from Greek Logos. Jesus or Yahweh, or THE LORD IS GOD, along with the Father! There is not a hint of a trinity here!
 
2 He was with God (The Father) in the beginning.
 
3 All things were made by Him (Jesus- the Word), and Nothing exists that He did not make.
 
4 In Him (Jesus) is life, and the life was the light of mankind.
 
5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not suppressed it.
 
6 There was a man sent from God (Elohim-The Family of God) whose name was John (The baptist).
 
7 He came to tell everyone about the light so that everyone might believe because of his testimony.
 
8 He himself was not that light; no, he came to bear witness concerning the light.
 
9 This was the true light, which gives light to everyone entering the world
 
10 He (Jesus- Yahweh the LORD) was in the world -- the world came to be by Him -- yet the world did not acknowledge Him {as God}.
 
11 He came to His own homeland, yet His own people did not receive him.
 
12 But to as many as did receive Him (Jesus), to those who put their trust in His person and power, He gave the right to become children of God (the Godhead (Theos - or Elohim)),
Theos is the Greek version of Elohim in Hebrew, meaning God or Godhead. Sometimes it pertains in the Gospels to The Father, often it means both Jesus and the Father, as it does here.
 
13 who were born, not of blood, or by physical means, but because of God (Theos).
 
14 The Word became a fleshly human being and dwelt (tabernacled or pitched his tent) among us, and we saw His glory, the glory of the Father's only Son, full of grace and truth.
This is why we observe the Feast of Tabernacles!
 
15 John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, "This was He of whom I said, 'He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He existed before me.' "
 
16 We have all received one blessing after another. God's grace is not limited.
 
17 For the Law (Torah) was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus (Yeshua) the Messiah.
 
18 No one has ever seen God (The Father); but the only and this unique Son, who is identical with God and is at the Father's side -- He has made Him known.
 Do you see what is being said here by John? This just isn't understand by Christians that not only is Jesus the LORD of the OT, but that he was identical and EQUAL to the Father!

John the Baptist Is Not the Christ

19 So this is John's testimony: when the Jews of Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask John who he was. John gave witness to them.
 
20 He did not try to hide the truth. He spoke to them openly. He said, "I am not the Christ."
 
21 "Then who are you?" they asked him. "Are you Elijah?" "No, I am not," he said. "Are you `The Prophet,' the one we're expecting?" "No," he replied.
The Prophet: that prophet--announced in Deuteronomy 18:15 , &c., about whom they seem not to have been agreed whether he were the same with the Messiah or no.
 
22 So they said to him, "Who are you? -- so that we can give an answer to the people who sent us to ask. What do you have to say about yourself?"
 
23 He answered using the words of Isaiah the prophet. John said, "I'm the messenger who is calling out in the desert, 'Make the way for the LORD (kyrios-Yahweh) straight.' "(Isaiah 40:3)
kyrios- Greek for Yahweh or LORD or JESUS' Prior self!
 
24 Some Pharisees who had been sent
 
25 asked him, "If you are neither the Messiah nor Elijah nor `the prophet,' then why are you immersing people in water?"
 
26 To them John replied, "I am baptizing people in water, but among you is standing one whom you don't know.
 
27 He is the one coming after me -- I'm not good enough even to untie his sandal!"
 
28 This all happened at Bethany on the other side of the Jordan River. That was where John was baptizing.

Jesus Is the Lamb of God

29 The next day John saw Jesus (Yeshua-or Joshua) coming toward him. John said, "Look! The Lamb of God! Who takes away the sin of the world!
the Lamb of God
--the one God-ordained, God-gifted sacrificial offering. that taketh away--taketh up and taketh away. The word signifies both, as does the corresponding Hebrew word. Applied to sin, it means to be chargeable with the guilt of it ( Exodus 28:38 , Leviticus 5:1 , Ezekiel 18:20 ), and to bear it away (as often). In the Levitical victims both ideas met, as they do in Christ, the people's guilt being viewed as transferred to them, avenged in their death, and so borne away by them ( Leviticus 4:15 , Leviticus 16:15 Leviticus 16:21 Leviticus 16:22 ; and compare Isaiah 53:6-12 , 2 Corinthians 5:21 ). (Jamieson)
 
30 This is the One I was talking about. I said, 'A Man who comes after me is more important than I am. That's because He existed before I was born.'
 
31 I myself did not recognize Him. But God wants to make it clear to Israel who this person is. That's the reason I came baptizing with water."
 
32 Then John gave this testimony: "I saw the Spirit (pnuema) coming down from heaven like a dove, and remaining on Him.
Spirit: 
    In the Old Testament the Holy Spirit (Ruwach) it is feminine in form, but is an essence of God and not a God. In the NT, the Spirit has a masculine form, but again is an essence-not a person. God (Jesus and the Father) are made up of Spirit, as man is made up of flesh and blood. The Holy Spirit is  WHAT God is made of and not part of a TRINITY!  As of now, until we are resurrected from the dead, there are only two beings in the Godhead!
 
33 I would not have known Him. But the One who sent me to baptize with water told me, 'You will see the Spirit come down and remain on someone. He is the One who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.'
      Spirit is the “flesh and blood of the Divine ones (angels and the Godhead) but HOLY SPIRIT exclusively is the essence that makes up God- not angels.
 
34 And I have seen and borne witness that this is the Son of God."
 
Jesus begins choosing HIS disciples:
35 The next day, John was again standing with two of his disciples.
 
36 On seeing Jesus walking by, he said, "Look! God's lamb!"
 
37 The two disciples heard him say this. So they followed Jesus.
 
38 Then Jesus turned around and saw them following. He asked, "What do you want?" They said, "Rabbi, where are you staying?" "Rabbi" means Teacher.
 
39 He said to them, "Come and see." So they went and saw where he was staying, and remained with him the rest of the day -- it was about four o'clock in the afternoon.
 
40 One of the two who heard John speak, and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
 
41 He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which is translated, the Christ or “one who has been anointed.")
 
42 And he brought him to Jesus. Now when Jesus looked at him, He said, "You are Simon the son of Jonah. You shall be called Cephas" (which is translated, A pebble).
 
43 The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, "Follow me."
 
44 Philip was from the town of Bethsaida. So were Andrew and Peter.
 
45 Philip found Nathanael and told him, "We have found the One that Moses wrote about in the Law (Torah). The prophets also wrote about him. He is Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph."
 
46 "Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?" Nathanael asked. "Come and see," said Philip.
 
47 Jesus saw Nathanael approaching. Here is what Jesus said about him. "He is a true Israelite. There is nothing false in him."
 
48 "How do you know me?" Nathanael asked. Jesus answered, "I saw you while you were still under the fig tree. I saw you there before Philip called you."
 
49 Nathanael said, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!"
 
50 Jesus answered him, "you believe all this just because I told you I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than that!"
 
51 Then he said to the disciples, "What I'm about to tell you is true. You will see heaven open. You will see the angels of God going up and coming down on the Son of Man."
The key to this great saying is Jacob's vision ( Genesis 28:12-22 ), to which the allusion plainly is. To show the patriarch that though alone and friendless on earth his interests were busying all heaven, he was made to see "heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon a" mystic "ladder reaching from heaven to earth." "By and by," says Jesus here, "ye shall see this communication between heaven and earth thrown wide open, and the Son of man the real Ladder of this intercourse."
