He Lifts His Voice – The Earth Melts

But the Lord Almighty is with us.
The God of Jacob is our fortress.

“…he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.”
– Psalm 46:7-8

Heard at the Royal Wedding Today

Be Thou My Vision

This will not be a complaint about the wedding today.

As I was watching the wedding today I was moved by the great hymn, “Be Thou My Vision,” being sung as Harry and William stood awaiting the bride, wearing military uniforms. Regardless of the details of their lives, nothing tarnishes the soaring theme of this anthem of devotion and praise.

Pray for all those in authority

“A king’s heart is like streams of water in the LORD’s hand: He directs it wherever He chooses.” – Proverbs 21:1

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.” – 1 Timothy 2:1-4  

He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire.
– Psalm 46:9

The following is an intercessory prayer based on the above scriptures.

Father, we pray that You would this day take hold of the hearts of all in authority in every sector of every nation or tribe on earth, from the least to the greatest, both the wicked and the good, and turn their hearts to do Your will, even when they are against You. We base our request on these scriptures, which will not return to You void, but will accomplish the purpose for which they were given. We do this in the name of Jesus, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness, and that the gospel of the kingdom may cross all borders unhindered. Amen

Hillary: I lost because America hates women

Clinton said, “There is still a very large proportion of the population that is uneasy with women in positions of leadership, and so the easiest way to kind of avoid having to look at someone on her merits is to dismiss her on her looks.”

Hillary, I would make a slight adjustment to your excuse, to make it more accurate.

Adjustment:

LARGE PORTION OF U.S. HAS ANGER, RAGE ABOUT EVIL WOMAN NAMED HILLARY CLINTON SEEKING POWER 

See? Just 4 additional words make Hill’s statement more believable.

 

Did you know there is a “kink community?”

WARNING!!! Mind Bleach Required!!!

AP: ‘Kink community’ angry at New York attorney general comments

Disgraced NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman

By David Crary

NEW YORK (AP) — Many members of what’s widely known as the kink community are outraged that Eric Schneiderman, in resigning as New York’s attorney general, depicted his alleged violence toward several women as “role-playing and other consensual sexual activity.”

Aficionados of kinky sex noted that Schneiderman’s accusers insisted they had given no consent — which is considered obligatory among most practitioners of kink…

I did not know there was such a “community” and wish I had not seen the term

On the other hand, if such a “community” does exist, it is best we know who and where it is so we can defend against it.

There is so much mental and spiritual risk when even touching this subject that I am not going to venture into detail about it. Even serial killer Ted Bundy warned of the dangers of BDSM pornography shortly before his execution.

The fact that a group can openly identify itself as the “kink community” is a testimony to the damage done to our culture by things like the novel, “50 Shades of Grey.”

The Epistle of Jude speaks to the peril involved in dealing with such a level of perversion.

“But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold. They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.” These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.

But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.

Be merciful to those who doubt; save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.

To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.”

Art – Fashion – Religion – Vanity

First, this is NOT an anti-Catholic post. If anything, it is anti-celebrity, anti-vanity, anti-blasphemy. Some of the finest Christians I know express their faith in Jesus Christ in the Roman Catholic Church.

Blasphemy at the Met

Vogue: Met Gala 2018 Theme: “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”

MAY 4, 2018 4:04 PM – by Laird Borrelli-Persson

Monday, May 7th, the Costume Institute will sanctify its love of fashion as it presents “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” Designed to create a dialogue between fashion and the masterworks of religious art in the museum’s holdings, the show will be presented in a trinity of locations: the Anna Wintour Costume Center, the medieval galleries at the Met’s Fifth Avenue location, and further uptown at the Cloisters. Central to the conversation will be the papal garb on loan from the Sistine Chapel sacristy, many of which have never been seen outside the Vatican, even in the 1983 Met blockbuster, “The Vatican Collections: The Papacy and Art.”

Blasphemy – Mockery

At what point do we recognize the truth about this event? Indeed many showed up with creative and lovely outfits. But then we have the inevitable spawn of Madona.

The usual gaggle of pigs in the parlor.

Question:
Who Benefits

Answer:
“Officially, it’s the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute benefit, a black-tie extravaganza held the first Monday in May to raise money for the Costume Institute (a.k.a. the fashion department).” – New York Times

With all this fine art at the Met thing taking on a Catholic Church identity, complete with the presence of church officials and artwork on loan from the Vatican, I at first, thought it might somehow benefit some church related needs. But no, it raises money to support the training of more fashion designers.

Hey! Where’s the spirit cooking workshop?

Don’t let anyone trouble you…

The Fear Continues

BND: Televangelist Jim Bakker calls his Missouri cabins the safest spot for the Apocalypse

BY KAITLYN SCHWERS

Televangelist Jim Bakker suggests that if you want to survive the end of days, the best thing you could do is buy one of his cabins in Missouri’s Ozark Mountains. And while you’re at it, be sure to pick up six 28-ounce “Extreme Survival Warfare” water bottles for $150…

St. Paul dealt with similar alarmists in his 2nd letter to the church at Thessalonica.

1Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers and sisters, 2not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come.
— 2 Thessalonians 2

Bakker’s activities are not identical to the ones St. Paul rebuked here, but the harm done is the same. It is to remove people from their confidence in Jesus, and to throw them into despair. This is a tactic worthy of Sun Tsu, who wrote The Art of War. The most successful general is the one who persuades his enemy to give up without a fight.

So Mr. Bakker, you are telling us we need to be afraid of what men might do. Is that what Jesus would advise?

4“I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. 5But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him.
– Luke 12:4-5

Let’s stand with Jesus, take up the full armor of God, and engage the enemy, instead of hoarding survival food and hiding under a rock.

What’s the worst that could happen? We might die?

If you were born the chances of your death are 100%!

Food for thought.
