WEST VIRGINIA DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE WAS PAGAN WITCHCRAFT CULT LEADER

 

  • A Democratic candidate in West Virginia was an active leader in pagan witchcraft for years and instructed others.
  • Lissa Lucas wrote two books on occult practices, including a how-to book for casting spells.
  • Lucas told The Daily Caller News Foundation she doesn’t think voters will care about her ‘spirituality’ because they’re not ‘religious bigos of a Wiccan cult to its third level — the highest stage for most Wiccan cults — and instructed lower-level Wiccans in occult practices, TheDCNF’s investigation found.

Lucas’s campaign has raised more than five times as much money as her Republican opponent, thanks in part to national media attention that has left out Lucas’s witchcraft.

She authored two books on casting pagan spells, writing under the name Llysse Smith Wylle.   MORE


Halloween Pagan to the core!

REPUBLISHED FROM 2009!

In another "Why we do what we do series" articles, we will examine Halloween an why this day Halloween2 isn't as innocent as most of us believe.

History:

Today's holiday known as Halloween has its origins in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain. The festival of Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest season in Gaelic culture, and is sometimes regarded as the "Celtic New Year". Traditionally, the celebration was a time used by the ancient Celtic pagans to take inventory of supplies and slaughter livestock for winter stores. The ancient Gaels believed that on October 31, now known as Halloween, the boundary between the alive and the deceased dissolved, and the dead become dangerous for the living by causing problems such as sickness or damaged crops. The festivals would frequently involve bonfires, into which bones of slaughtered livestock were thrown. Costumes and masks were also worn at the festivals in an attempt to mimic the evil spirits or placate them. In pagan times often humans were burned in these bonfires along with cattle and other animals.

Halloween1 In the 1950's and 60's the day was mostly a children's fun day but over the past thirty years, Halloween has become a holiday that is not just for kids any more. Halloween has fast become the party holiday of adults and parents. It ranks number two behind Christmas in decorations and annual sales within the United States.

The term Halloween is shortened from All Hallows' Even (both "even" and "eve" are abbreviations of "evening", but "Halloween" gets its "n" from "even") as it is the eve of "All Hallows' Day",which is now also known as All Saints' Day. It was a day of religious festivities in various northern European Pagan traditions, until Popes Gregory III and Gregory IV moved the old Christian feast of All Saints' Day from May 13 (which had itself been the date of a pagan holiday, the Feast of the Lemures) to 1st November. In the ninth century, the Church measured the day as starting at sunset, in accordance with the Florentine calendar. Although All Saints' Day are now considered to occur one day after Halloween, the two holidays were, at that time, celebrated on the same day. Liturgically, the Church traditionally celebrated that day as the Vigil of All Saints, and, until 1970, a day of fasting as well. Like other vigils, it was celebrated on the previous day if it fell on a Sunday, although secular celebrations of the holiday remained on the 31st. The Vigil was suppressed in 1955, but was later restored in the post-Vatican II calendar. Therefore, you Protestants out there following the holiday, you are following yet another Catholic holy day that was adopted from paganism and nothing found in the Bible. The same applies to Sunday replacing the Sabbath, by the way. It was the Catholic church, hundreds of years after the first New Testament Pentecost that changed the Saturday Sabbath to Sunday. Catholics have every right to worship on Sunday's, non-Catholics do not!

Unlike other paganized 'Christian' holidays, Halloween has no scriptural basis whatsoever! None, zero, Nada! It is a totally pagan day from start to finish that God condemns us to follow! Satan, the devil who is the god of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4), who deceives the whole world (Revelation 12:9), is the author of all these days. Ironically, Satan wears the greatest costume of all, masquerading as an Angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:13-15). Jeremiah 10:2 (King James Version)  "Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them."

Scripture also records God’s command: "When you come into the land which the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you anyone… who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord" (Deuteronomy 18:9–14). The Bible clearly forbids dabbling in witchcraft and the occult and idolatry, but the Israelites ignored these instructions. Israel incurred God’s wrath because its people "practiced witchcraft and soothsaying, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger" (2 Kings 17:17).

America, it is time to wake up. We cannot continue to disobey God and enjoy peace and freedom and prosperity. If we are true to obey God, God will be true to forgive our sins and to bless us before the world! Start reading your Bible! Learn what it is that your God wants you to know. The God who created you wants you to be their friends! Both the Father and the Son are God (John 1) and have invited us into their family!


 


It's no accident children are drawn to Satanism

Halloween is not harmless, and the messages Satan is giving to your children is dangerous

1
But too many Americans are dismissing any Christian walk at all and turning to experimental and sensational “spirituality,” the kind that allows humans to do pretty much whatever they wish. They assume this is the road to happiness.

Of course, believers know it’s the road to destruction.

It’s a Halloween trick on a cosmic scale. As more Americans than ever – including youth – are turning to astrology, trances, witchcraft, paganism and even Satanism, there’s a very real probability that the spiritual door to the occult opened for many people within supposedly Christian congregations with these elements of apostate belief:

  • Worship of “gods” alongside Christ – Allah, Buddha, etc.
  • Praying to female goddesses – Sophia, Kali, Isis – to reflect “equality”
  • Seeking altered consciousness (a trance or meditative state)
  • Praying to the dead or conducting a séance
  • Practicing astrology
  • Deviant sexuality

All these sinful practices open one’s spirit to rebellion where Satan and his demons deceive and entice. As 2 Corinthians 11:14 tell us, “… Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.” But it’s a lie leading to hell.

Recent reports point to self-declared Christian “witches” along with a dramatic rise in the number of witchcraft adherents. Christian faith in some circles is never weighed as a serious option.

Witchcraft is being normalized and glamorized to young girls through media like Teen Vogue. This fall, a revived “Sabrina” series is debuting on Netflix, and this time, it’s not a comedy but a gruesome drama with story lines that include Satanism. And “Charmed” is back as well, with a plot that’s a diabolical stew of occult rituals along with feminist politics – and of course, the requisite sexual perversion. One of the characters is a lesbian.

HALLOWE'EN IS PAGAN!

The Sigil of Baphomet: emblem of the Church of...The Sigil of Baphomet: emblem of the Church of Satan (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

By Garner Ted Armstrong

HALLOWE'EN, commonly spelled without the apostrophe today, is utterly PAGAN! All its symbols and customs stem from ancient heathen mythology. Why should any Christ-centered, Bible-believing person revel in ghoulish death? What place have witches, goblins, demons, skeletons, "Jack o' Lanterns," black cats, and the worship of "Samhain, the Lord of the Dead," in a Christian society? Millions use "Halloween," as it is commonly misspelled today, as an excuse for wild revelry. Little do they know that it is the ghoulish "New Year" for Satanists!

by Garner Ted Armstrong   [printer-friendly]     [pdf format]

Are you a slave to custom? Do you blindly accept whatever "society" imposes upon you, blissfully ignorant of the origin and meaning of commonly observed customs?

Each October, like so many dupes or slaves, hundreds of thousands of shopkeepers and clerks labor to install their usual "Halloween decorations" each October.Each autumn, thousands of markets, drugstores, department stores and millions of houses and lawns become scenes of "jack-o'-lanterns," witches, broomsticks, black cats, leering skeletons, weird, bleeding skulls, knives, daggers, spears and swords, bloody masks, fake spider webs and other symbols of the devil and his demons, and macabre death.

Rand Paul on Political Climate: ‘I Really Worry’ of a Political Assassination

1In an interview on Kentucky WHAS radio’s “Leland Conway Show,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) warned against Democrats like Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) calling for people to confront Republicans in public.

Relevant portion begins around the 8:05 mark.

“These are people that are unstable. We don’t want to encourage them,” said Paul. “We have to somehow ratchet it down and say we’re not encouraging that violence is ever OK.”

Paul went on to say he fears there will be an “assassination” as a result of the rhetoric coming from lawmakers like Booker and Waters.

“I really worry that someone is going to be killed and that those who are ratcheting up the conversation. They have to realize that they bear some responsibility if this elevates to violence,” he added.

 

 


Pittsburg: The Victims

Authorities identify all 11 victims of Pittsburgh synagogue shooting aged from 54 to 97

Pittsburgh authorities have released the identities of all 11 victims, aged 54 to 97, who were gunned down by suspect Robert Gregory Bowers while worshiping at a synagogue on Saturday morning. Jerry Rabinowitz, 65, Rose Mallinger, 97, Daniel Stein, 71, Richard Gottfried, 65, Joyce Fienberg, 75, Cecil Rosenthal, 59, David Rosenthal, 54, and Melvin Wax, 88, (left to right) were among those killed. Bernice Simon, 84, Sylvan Simon, 86, and 69-year-old Irving Younger were also identified as victims by Chief Medical Examiner Dr Karl Williams Sunday morning. David and Cecil Rosenthal were brothers and Sylvan and Bernice Simon were husband and wife. Stein had recently become a grandfather and Gottfried was a dentist. Bowers killed the victims inside the Tree of Life Synagogue on Saturday during worship services before a tactical police team tracked him down and shot him, police said in an affidavit.


Merkel to Quit as Party Chief as Her Chancellorship Wobbles

The Bible clearly identifies Europe as the Beast of Revelation and the King of the North. For years, Bible scholars who know this has been waiting for Europe to reawaken it's Nazi past and find a strongman to lead a newly yet to be formed Holy Roman Empire, with recognition from the Pope and led by Germany.  Modern day Germany are the people that the Bible refers to as the Assyrians.  Europe is begging to get closer to their destiny...

(Bloomberg) -- German Chancellor Angela Merkel will quit as head of her Christian Democratic party after almost two decades, a person familiar with the matter said, a dramatic sign of her waning authority that will raise questions about her staying power as chancellor.

The unexpected reversal by Merkel, 64, signals the beginning of the end of an era during which her command of Germany put its stamp on Europe and beyond for more than a decade. Even so, Merkel’s term as chancellor runs until 2021 and Merkel has said she intends to serve it out. She is scheduled to speak to the media at 1 p.m. local time on Berlin.

The chancellor told a leadership meeting of her Christian Democratic Union on Monday that she won’t run again as party chairwoman at a convention in December, according to the person, who asked not to be identified because the meeting was closed.

Market reaction was muted with the euro remaining above last week’s low against the dollar on the news, which followed setbacks for Merkel’s CDU-led bloc in regional elections this month. Merkel herself blamed the losses on infighting in her national government.

After 18 years as party chief, the move throws open the succession race for a post that has traditionally has been the springboard for CDU chancellors.

Contenders

Possible contenders include Health Minister Jens Spahn, who has publicly criticized her open-doors refugee policy and is championed by the CDU’s social conservatives; Ralph Brinkhaus, a fiscal hawk who unexpectedly ousted Merkel’s longtime parliamentary caucus leader; and Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, her hand-picked party general secretary who’s often cited as her most likely successor.

Others include two state premiers Armin Laschet and Daniel Guenther, who carry weight after recently leading the CDU to victory in regional elections.

CHINESE OFFICIALS BURN BIBLES, FORCE CHRISTIANS TO DENOUNCE FAITH

As the US Media is only interested in FAKE NEWS and down right liars like Woodward,  you can read THE REAL NEWS HERE!

The Chinese government is destroying cross, burning bibles, closing churches and forcing Christian believers to sign papers renouncing their faith as the crackdown on religious congregations in Beijing and several provinces intensifies.

The suppression of religious freedoms comes as an official government campaign to “Sinicize” religion by demanding loyalty to the atheist Communist party and removing any potential challenge to the party’s power in the country.

“The international community should be alarmed and outraged for this blatant violation of freedom of religion and belief,” Bob Fu of China Aid, said.

Halloween is not harmless.

image from blog.clipartqueen.com

By Bob Barney

"Trick or treat," we've all heard that, haven't we? Has anyone ever figured out, that not only is Halloween  pagan to the core, it also is a study in Democratic Party propaganda and education. "Trick or treat," simply means to give me something that I want, or I will do you harm. Jesse Jackson has made a fortune  "tricking in treating" himself. So has the Rev. Al Sharpton and of course the infamous ACORN!  I guess maybe the real reason that liberals love this holiday more than any holiday that we celebrate America, is that it is the closest holiday which represents the way they run their lives. To these liberal, un-American, amoral, immoral and totally dishonest politicians and cohorts, Halloween and the practices of this holiday is exactly excellent training ground for tomorrow's liberal terrorist. So when you send your child out tonight, in ghoulish costumes, representing the devil and all the evil in the world, and in your child promises to trick someone if they don't get "treated" sends a message to your child more frightening than the holiday itself. The message your child gets is that in order to get a free lunch, one must be willing to practice terrorism, or at least threaten it. Halloween is not an innocent holiday for us to observe and to enjoy. It is not harmless either. Each year hundreds of children are injured and maimed by sick people that put razor blades, Needles and pins inside candy treats. How in good conscience can you allow children to go to strangers' homes, and accept anything that they will eat? If that is not child abuse I don't know what it's. It's time this country gets serious about its lack of morals, and its lack of godliness. Wake up, read the articles on The Plain Truth, and put a stop to this harmful pagan holiday.


Saudi Arabia Says It Will Retaliate Against Punitive Measures

Maybe the future King of the South (Daniel 11)

1Saudi Arabia will retaliate against any punitive measures with an even “stronger” response, the official news agency reported, in an apparent reaction to U.S. President Donald Trump’s threats to take action over the disappearance of a prominent government critic.

 “The kingdom rejects any threats,” the Saudi Press Agency reported, citing an official it didn’t identify.

Saudi Arabian equities slumped as much as 7 percent Sunday on concern over possible U.S. measures.   In an excerpt from an interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes”, Trump added pressure on the kingdom, vowing “severe punishment” should the kingdom’s leaders be linked to the disappearance of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.   MORE


Exact $500million replica of the Titanic will set sail in 2022

Exact replica of the Titanic will set sail in 2022 and follow original ship's route

Construction has resumed on the Titanic II after an ongoing financial dispute. The new boat will feature the same cabin layout as the original to mimic its 'overall aesthetic', including formal dining rooms, a grand staircase, a smoke room, and a Turkish bath. The ship will also be able to fit nearly the same number of passengers as the original - but this time there will be far more lifeboats, just in case it meets a similar fate as the doomed ship that hit an iceberg and sunk in 1912, killing 1,500 people.


New study shows increase in people driving while stoned

Driving under the influence -- whether of alcohol or drugs -- continues to be an area of concern. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over one million drivers were arrested in 2016 for driving under the influence of either substance.

The agency also reported that marijuana use among drivers is on the rise -- increasing by 13 percent in the last year.

A new study that was recently published in De Gruyter’s Journal of Drug Policy Analysis explores the increase in driving under the influence of marijuana, as well as possible options available for testing THC levels.

Aiming for safety

As more states across the country legalize marijuana use, the researchers believe it may lead to more instances of people driving high. While there are several risk factors associated with driving under the influence, slowed reaction times and impaired depth perception and spatial judgment are some of the major concerns.

In addition to more stoned drivers, the researchers were interested in finding reliable ways to test drivers’ THC levels should they get pulled over. While breathalyzer tests are the most common -- and accurate -- way to determine a driver’s blood alcohol level, doing the same with weed proves to be more difficult.

The researchers suggested an oral fluid drug test as one such way to measure THC levels. This would involve getting a saliva sample from the driver and analyzing the drug levels. However, the report notes that these tests don’t measure specific levels -- just the presence or absence -- of drugs in the saliva.

An alternative would be a blood test, which would be able to assess how much marijuana is in the bloodstream. However, that would have to be performed by a trained medical professional in a medical facility -- which isn’t realistic for drivers getting pulled over on the side of the road. Additionally, the researchers note that THC levels drop rapidly in the blood, and would therefore pose the same concerns as the oral fluid test. It would be difficult to determine the level of impairment based on a blood test.

One potentially successful method would be a gaze test. The researchers explain in their report that several drugs -- including marijuana -- produce tiny movements in the eyes while the person under the influence attempts to stare straight ahead. While this method is still being tested, many law enforcement officials rely on field sobriety tests, which the researchers say can get tricky, or one of the chemical tests discussed above that may not produce the most accurate results.

Bible Museum Admits Some of its Dead Sea Scrolls are Fake

Dead Sea Scrolls

WASHINGTON (AP) — When Washington’s $500 million Museum of the Bible held its grand opening in November 2017, attended by Vice President Mike Pence, there were questions even then about the authenticity of its centerpiece collection of Dead Sea Scrolls.

Now the museum has been forced to admit a painful truth: Technical analysis by a team of German scholars has revealed that at least five of the museum’s 16 scroll fragments are apparent forgeries.

The announcement has serious implications not only for the Bible Museu

Jeffrey Kloha, chief curator for the Museum of the Bible, said in a statement that the revelation is “an opportunity to educate the public on the importance of verifying the authenticity of rare biblical artifacts, the elaborate testing process undertaken and our commitment to transparency.”

The scrolls are a collection of ancient Jewish religious texts first discovered in the mid-1940s in caves on the western shore of the Dead Sea in what is now Israel. The massive cache of Hebrew documents is believed to date back to the days of Jesus. With more than 9,000 documents and 50,000 fragments, the entire collection took decades to fully excavate.

Most of the scrolls and fragments are tightly controlled by the Israeli Antiquities Authority. But around 2002, a wave of new fragments began mysteriously appearing on the market, despite skepticism from Biblical scholars.

Lax oversight of outpatient centers allow deaths and serious injuries to go unexamined.

The first man died in April 2014. Another died later that month. Then on July 18 of that year, a woman was rushed to a hospital where she was told she was lucky to be alive.

They all went to the same Little Rock, Ark., surgery center for a colonoscopy, among the safest procedures a patient can have. And each stopped breathing soon afterward, court records say, sustaining the same type of brain damage seen in a drowning victim.

What happened at Kanis Endoscopy Center prompted no review by officials in Arkansas, which, like 16 other states, has no mandate to report patient deaths after surgery center care. So no facility oversight authority has examined whether the deaths were a statistical anomaly or cause for alarm.

A Kaiser Health News and USA Today Network investigation found that surgery centers operate under such an uneven mix of rules across U.S. states that fatalities or serious injuries can result in no warning to government officials, much less to potential patients.  MORE


Stress this! The best cure ever for anxiety

By Joe Kovacs


image from i0.wp.comWe live in a frantic, pressure-packed world full of trouble.

Everything seems to be happening at a faster pace than ever, and millions of Americans are now suffering from stress, anxiety and sometimes even depression because of it.

The news itself confirms it. A recent story from U.S. News and World Report blared the headline, "Stress Is Keeping Americans Up at Night."

It has the results of a survey by Bankrate.com indicating a stunning 69 percent of Americans say they occasionally lose sleep due to something they're worried about. Yes, about seven in every 10 people.

The top fret-maker for many people is relationships, with 41 percent in the survey saying it keeps them up at night. A close second at 36 percent was financial concerns preventing people from plunging into a good night's sleep.

After relationships and money concerns, 30 percent of people say work stresses them out, followed by 28 percent blaming health, and 14 percent indicating politics was causing their insomnia.

The research indicates issues surrounding the family are especially worrisome, as they're "the biggest source of stress among people who lose sleep because they're up thinking about their relationships."

"If you're economically secure but someone in your family is not, you might worry about what's going to happen to them," says Jennifer Ailshire, a University of Southern California professor who has studied the tie between poor sleep and family relationships. "You could have worries from a relationship because you're actually in conflict with someone. Or it could be a very good relationship, but you're concerned about a sibling or a parent or an adult child who themselves are going through either economic hard times or their own relationship issues or maybe health scares in their life."

Meanwhile, college students are pressing the panic button more than ever.

The College Fix reports "the number of college students looking to counseling for help for mental health struggles is drastically increasing across the nation, according to studies, campus counselors, and many recent news reports."

"Data over the past five years from counseling centers nationwide have shown that the top two reasons students come for counseling are anxiety and depression," Karen Nakayama, director of the Counseling Center at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, told the Fix.

"Currently, anxiety is number one and depression is second. In the past, depression was first and anxiety was second," she said.

No matter what people are concerned about, it seems like worrying is on the rise. But can it be stopped, or at the very least, reduced in some measure to get people back to sleeping normally?

The advice from the Bankrate survey may seem typical. It quotes Brad Klontz, associate professor of practice at the Financial Psychology Institute, who says writing about what's worrying you can help.

"Dump this stuff from your brain onto paper. And I think part of us relaxes when we believe that maybe we're perhaps going to take some steps to fix this stressor," Klontz said. "Get over the shame, come up with a list of things you need to do and then start asking for help."

Ailshire at USC suggests other ways to calm you down before bed, including exercise, yoga and even meditation. Those ideas may work for you and they may not.

But the obvious and best answer to the problem of our personal fears and anxiety is rarely, if ever, mentioned in today's news stories. Perhaps because it involves the G-word. It's a word that some people find more offensive than the F-word or the N-word. And what is the G-word? The word is God.

Yes, folks, your very own Designer and Creator actually has quite a bit to say on the matter of anxiety and stress, but many people don't know about it, don't put it into practice or outright reject it because it comes from the Holy Bible.

So let's crack open the Good Book and see what it has to say.

First of all, Scripture is no stranger to people who have all kinds of stress, anxiety and turmoil in life. Here are some examples from the Psalms:

I am faint and severely crushed; I groan because of the anguish of my heart. (Psalm 38:8 CSB)

So I confess my iniquity; I am anxious because of my sin. (Psalm 38:18 CSB)

I am weary from my groaning; with my tears I dampen my bed and drench my couch every night. (Psalm 6:6 CSB)

King David wrote many of the Psalms, which are actually songs, and he was personally familiar with severe cases of stress and anxiety. Just imagine how many sleepless nights he endured dealing with his adulterous affair with Bathsheba, her subsequent pregnancy and his secret plot to kill her husband Uriah the Hittite, not to mention the agony he went through not knowing if Bathsheba's child from his sinful union would die or not after being stricken by God. (The child did die.) All that would make anyone quake.

And stress was not relegated to the Old Testament only. The Bible says the best of all men, Jesus Christ, knew first-hand what it was like to suffer intensely, even before He was flogged and nailed to wood. In his final prayers, Scripture says:

Being in anguish, he prayed more fervently, and his sweat became like drops of blood falling to the ground. (Luke 22:44 CSB)

So there is no doubt the Word of God is familiar with what human beings go through at their most turbulent times. Anxiety and fear are serious problems, and can be extremely distressing.

But there are numerous statements from your Maker that can help us deal with anxiety when it does strike. Interestingly, yoga, exercise and writing down one's worries are hard to find in Scripture as cures for the problem.

One famous song by David says: "When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?" (Psalm 56:3-4 CSB)

So David does acknowledge his fear, but immediately notes that when he's afraid, he will trust in God to help. It's no secret that "In God We Trust" is one of America's mottos, but do we really trust in Him? Or do we merely claim to?

God says through the prophet Isaiah we shouldn't fear, since He is personally with us providing divine strength and help:

Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10 CSB)

For I am the LORD your God, who holds your right hand, who says to you, 'Do not fear, I will help you. (Isaiah 41:13 CSB)

The Bible is replete with statements urging us not to fear, because fear does not help relieve stress or anxiety. It only makes the situation worse.

In the New Testament, Jesus gives a good-sized discussion about fear and anxiety, and He instructs us to put them out of our minds. It may take some effort on our part to accomplish that, but He provides some simple examples to demonstrate why we should put our faith and trust in God instead of worrying ourselves sick:

"Therefore I tell you: Don't worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Isn't life more than food and the body more than clothing?

"Consider the birds of the sky: They don't sow or reap or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren't you worth more than they?

"Can any of you add one moment to his life-span by worrying?

"And why do you worry about clothes? Observe how the wildflowers of the field grow: They don't labor or spin thread.

"Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was adorned like one of these.

"If that's how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and thrown into the furnace tomorrow, won't he do much more for you ​-- ​you of little faith?

"So don't worry, saying, 'What will we eat? ' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear?'

"For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.

"But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you.

"Therefore don't worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." (Mathew 6:25-34 CSB)

By calling people "you of little faith," Jesus is saying that if we're constantly worried and anxious, we actually have very little faith. God clearly takes care of the animals and flowers, and says we're worth much more than those parts of creation. And our Father in heaven knows we need to have nourishment and clothing. The solution is to seek the kingdom of God and the righteousness of God, and all our needs will be provided. In other words, our top goal must be entrance into His eternal kingdom, and He'll gladly give us everything we need.

At the end of a similar discussion in Luke, Jesus added:

"Don't be afraid, little flock, because your Father delights to give you the kingdom." (Luke 12:32 CSB)

The apostle Paul also addressed the subject of fears and anxiety, saying:

Don't worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7 CSB)

This is not only a directive against fretting, but it also tells us to have direct discussions with God in prayer, letting Him know what's on our mind and what we'd like Him to do. That's when the supernatural peace of God becomes divine protection for our hearts and minds, allowing us to experience tranquility.

Paul also noted:

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but one of power, love, and sound judgment. (2 Timothy 1:7 CSB)

What he is saying is that when we become followers of God and receive the Spirit of God in us, we won't be afraid, because God's Spirit is not one that causes us to be afraid. Instead, because we receive power, love and sound judgment, our hearts and minds with be filled with those better things, instead of being afraid all the time.

In the final book of the Bible, in Revelation 21:8, it actually states that "the fearful" or "cowards," depending on the translation, will join murderers, idolaters, liars, the sexually immoral and those who practice witchcraft in the lake of fire, which is the second death. This is serious stuff, a matter of eternal life or eternal death.

Thus, we all need to make every effort to stop being afraid, and put our complete faith and trust in the One who is with us, strengthens us and helps us. We need to stop rebelling against God's instructions and instead become His obedient children. Then, He will grant us the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, and we can have our minds at rest, enabling us to get the physical sleep we all need.

As the song says, God "gives sleep to the one he loves." (Psalm 127:2 CSB)

The film is a gripping courtroom drama reminiscent of "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit" — only this is a true story, and the special victims are the hundreds, if not thousands, of late-term babies that real life Dr. Kermit Gosnell delivered alive and killed in his filthy abortion clinic in Philadelphia.

The movie, "Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer," is meticulously documented and based on actual court transcripts and the grand jury’s report. Mercifully, the screenwriters masterfully convey this grisly tale without actually showing any graphic or gory visuals. The movie closes with dialogue between the detective, played by Dean Cain, and a young reporter that seems to be a sharp challenge from the filmmakers to the media: Don’t ignore this story (and others like it) due to bias on abortion politics.

A similar bias allowed Gosnell to operate with impunity for 30 years with virtually no inspections from the state health department. The grand jury report described Gosnell as a “butcher of women” stating that he “didn’t just kill babies. He was also a deadly threat to mothers.” Two women died at his hands, and countless others were gravely maimed, yet numerous complaints fell on deaf ears. These horrors were eventually discovered only by accident, when the clinic was raided by the FBI and the DEA in a bust of Gosnell’s illegal prescription drug ring. The agents were shocked to find little babies’ bodies “ scattered throughout, in cabinets, in the basement, in a freezer, in jars and bags…. It was a baby charnel house.” Were it not for this, Gosnell would still be “serving” women and snipping babies’ spines at his “Women’s Medical Society” in West Philadelphia.

Tragically, there are other Gosnell-type abortionists operating today with impunity. Much of what Gosnell did illegally is being done legally in other states that do not have Pennsylvania’s 24-week abortion limit. Abortion doctors in Maryland and New Mexico openly advertise late second- and even third-trimester abortions online, and this ugly truth is mostly, inexplicably, ignored by the media.

One such late-term abortion specialist is the notorious LeRoy Carhart. Unlike Gosnell, Carhart was smart enough to evade scrutiny by moving his clinic from Nebraska to Maryland, which has no meaningful limits on third-trimester abortions. Carhart was caught on tape explaining that he injects a poison, Digoxin, into the baby’s heart prior to inducing labor, so that the baby won’t be born alive.

Limbaugh on Khashoggi: ‘Where Was This Concern for Our Ambassador and Three Other Men Brutally Murdered in Benghazi?’

Wednesday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh compared the situation involving journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was allegedly brutally killed at a Saudi Arabian consulate in Turkey, to that of the tragedy of September 11, 2012 at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that resulted in the deaths of J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

Limbaugh noted the reluctance of the media and others to question the handling of the situation by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton versus how President Donald Trump will handle the Saudi government regarding the apparent Khashoggi murder.

Partial transcript as follows (courtesy RushLimbaugh.com):

Ladies and gentlemen, I have a question. I continue to get emails about the so-called Washington Post journalist, Jamal Khashoggi. My question is a really rather simple one: Where was this concern for our ambassador and three other men brutally murdered in Benghazi? Somebody explain that to me? You realize how much attention is being paid to what… Has it been confirmed….? Did something happen since this program began?

Has it been confirmed that Khashoggi was murdered by the 15 hit men from Saudi Arabia? Has it been confirmed? It’s not confirmed? So it’s still likely or thought to be… And the story is that it took him seven minutes to die, that they dismembered him alive, at some point gave him drugs to knock him out, and then they listened to music while they did all of this. And of course until I blew up the theory that the Apple Watch contained the evidence, they were gonna try to make it look like proof existed in the form of audio recordings.

Khashoggi knew what was in store for him and he had finagled his Apple Watch to record the stuff somehow on his iPhone. That is very, very unlikely because of it being technologically impossible, barring just only two exceptions. I would have a tough time believing Khashoggi even knew to do or how to do. But all of this concern. And remember Hillary Clinton, when repeated questions were asked about how in the world four Americans were allowed to be murdered in Benghazi, with no assistance, and Hillary Clinton’s reaction?

(paraphrased) “What difference does it make now?” she said in frustration. Does anybody see a disparity here in proportion? Now, of course, we all understand why. The Democrats seriously believe they have a way of blaming Donald Trump for this. CNN all afternoon has tried to make it look like that Trump knows the Saudis did it and is trying to provide them cover. That’s… It’s despicable! The graphics that they are using to try to make that case. But I think there’s a lot proportionality missing here. Again, I don’t think the media realizes how obvious their subterfuge is to people now.


MEDIA BLACKOUT: JOURNALIST TARGETED FOR BEING WHITE TRAGICALLY DIES

Forward: Notice how the media, including FAUX NEWS keeps calling Khashoggi an AMERICAN journalist, implying he was a US citizen.  HE IS NOT!  He is an Arabian, WORKING for an American newspaper!  That's a big difference.  In my opinion, Khashoggi was an anti-American terrorist supported, and I don't give a hoot that he is dead- and it certainly isn't worth $300 oil!  And that's what you are going to get, if Trump falls for this nonsense!  Below is a real dead American the media doesn't tell you about!

A shocking racial hate crime has killed a man who lived his life trying to help others, but the details in the case mean there will be no riots, and you probably won’t hear his name mentioned on the national news.

The assault occurred in May, but the victim remained on life support until his death on Thursday. To make the horrific attack even worse, authorities believe the journalist was targeted and ultimately killed because of his skin color.

RAN KAVANAUGH STORY WITH KNOWINGLY FALSE INFORMATION

The Washington Post falsely suggested that Georgetown Preparatory School was hiring a new employee to deal with fallout from the Kavanaugh hearings, despite the school directly contradicting WaPo’s report.

Emily Heil reported on October 18 that Georgetown Prep was hiring a director of alumni relations, and wrote that the school posted the advertisement for the position this week. The article further suggested that the school was adding the position because of the news surrounding the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a Georgetown Prep alum, to the Supreme Court.

However, Heil was informed prior to publication of her article by a spokesperson for Georgetown Prep that the position was posted back in July.

Heil specifically asked spokesperson Patrick Coyle when the alumni director job was posted, according to a copy of the email posted by @AG_Conservative.

Ancient inscription of first full spelling of 'Jerusalem' thrills archaeologists

 The Hebrew spelling of the city - pronounced Yerushalayim - is the same today.

Danit Levy, Israeli Antiquities Authority Excavation Manager, stands by the stone column drum with a 2,000-year-old stone inscription

The name of the city in that form appears only rarely from the period of the second Jewish temple (first century AD) and usually in religious and political contexts, said David Mevorach of the Israel Museum, where the stone is now being exhibited.   MORE
