Dr. Ben Carson: From my devotional. (God is a nice guy).

As I’ve done in the past I like to share from my devotional. A few of them have been from Dr. Ben Carson and have always been inspirational, thought provoking to me causing me to ponder my own walk and to look inside and helpful in tough and dark time’s in my walk. This devotional was given to me by my father years ago, way before Ben Carson became a public figure or Presidential candidate . Sharing these posts from him I think would help to get to know him apart from the “Lame Stream Media’s” agenda, spin and other political sources and references and share a rare look at the man’s heart and faith if you’v never had the pleasure before.

I would be very comfortable with this man running the country along with my favorites of the Republican candidates, Fiorina, and of course love Ted Cruz. Personally I think both Carson and Cruz are godly, faithful men and we could do a lot worse with theses guy’s in charge. They both have a clear record on what they believe and stand for. Florina would be a good leader too, I voted for here when she ran in California and I think she is faithful and her sharing of her faith has been truthful though I do not agree with her on her comment’s last night on the talk show when she said ” a Muslim shouldn’t be prevented from serving as president “ I think that was a “Politically Correct” answer.

Though I may agree with most of what Trump say’s in regard to immigration, the border and the way he has forced the conversation to the front of issues we are facing today that need to be dealt with. I think we’v had enough of a prideful arrogant, divisive leader for quite sometime. No doubt he’s a good business man and if he were to get elected I think it would be a sad commentary on our nation, showing the world we are hateful, childish, arrogant, a generation of me, me, me and screw the rest of you. I respect and agree with what Scott Walker did and said yesterday another godly man! “I believe that I am being called to lead by helping to clear the field in this race so that a positive, conservative message can rise to the top of the field,” Walker said. “… I encourage other Republican presidential candidates to consider doing the same so that the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front-runner.”  That’s my two cents anyway, moving on to the devotional. BTW on subject of politics’s one of the most excellent tool’s I use fro none bias look at politicians  is VoteSmart.org , give it a try.

“The Love of the Father” Author: Dr. Ben Carson.

“ABOUT my faith in God, I want to express a few heartfelt thoughts that may sound simplistic or irreverent. As I continue to develop my relationship with him , I have discovered that God is a nice guy.

 I confess that while growing up, I had bought into the concept of God as a stern individual who busily jots down in a book every mistake we make, so that on Judgment Day he can call us up and point to each one, saying “Why did you do this? I know you did this,” and then divulge to everybody present the unpraiseworthy actions of our lives.

 I have slowly matured, and have experienced God’s help in many crises. I have come to realize the God does not want to punish us but, rather, to fulfill our lives. God created us, loves us, and want’s to help us to realize our potential so that we can be useful to others.

 The relationship that God wants with me became particularly clear to me after Candy and I had children of out own. I realized how much I love my sons and how much I want for them. Of course I want them to be successful, and want to give them everything I can to make them happy. And I realized that God loves me even more than I love my own children.

 I cannot give my children everything, but I try to arrange their environment so that they can learn to stand on their own feet, to respect others and to become valuable citizens. 

 If I lavish everything on them, they will never reach those goals, but as long as my children know that I love them- that I will stand behind them and do everything within my power to assure their success in life, I feel that I have done what I can for them. They will develop confidence in my love for them and will know that I only want good for them.

 As I have considered my relationship with my sons, it makes it clear to me the relationship that God wants with me and with all the children he has created in the world.” 

Been there, through that and still maturing. Though I don’t have children of my own I have nephews and nieces. I’m 50 something and about 22 years old as a Christian,( still young and growing) I tried and and I can only hope and pray what I’ve shared with them when they where young and coming up would be pleasing in your eyes Lord and help them some how on their journey and relationship with you.

Again I wouldn’t mind having a man with a heart and knowledge like this running the show for a while, especially after what we’ve been through these past seven years and opposed to the “front runner” now. Wouldn’t it be a nice change?

God bless America and you!

It’s not just the sin and perversion of homosexuality. Redefining Marriage.

There can be no doubt that homosexuality is a sin and a perversion of the original design, especially when it comes to redefining marriage. Matthew 19:4-5 King James Version (KJV) 4 “And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?” But that’s what satin does, he perverse s and call’s into question anything God does or say’s. “‘Did God really say that you must not eat from any tree in the garden?” ( Bible verses about Marriage ) Progressivism is a cult and of the devil. It all has to do with the original sin of pride and wanting to be god’s. The very reason satin was thrown out of heaven and to the earth, pride, he wanted to be God. ( Why did God allow Satan and the demons to sin? ) From their founding fathers who also believe in “Population Control” BTW and channeling spirits for guidance. Progressives, truly do believe that through science they can become god’s, through government and legislation they know best and all anyone else has to do is conform. I’ve done the research and posted about it, if you would only take the time to research it for yourself you’d see the difference between their cult and God is that God allows choices/freewill, where progressives do not and attack relentlessly those that oppose their beliefs or opinions. They’v been at “The fundamental change of America” for some time, some say 100 years at least but in 1962 when they got prayer banned in the public schools they went main stream and they’v been at the business of removing God from society ever since. Their agenda should have been realized. Sad for us it wasn’t or no one thought how devastating that small step would be. I’m sure that there had to be people sounding the alarm bells but like now and since 2008 no one payed attention. They where and are to caught up in the sin of pride, me, me, me and only me matters and what can you do for me. Who has time for God when it’s all about me. Let me be clear here. Though the “Cult” and perversion is of the devil most of the people behind it are lost, though some know exactly what the are doing. But there is hope for the lost.

John 3:16-21Modern English Version (MEV) 16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 He who believes in Him is not condemned. But he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 This is the verdict, that light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone who does evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that it may be revealed that his deeds have been done in God.”  

And as far as Christians are concerned it’s NOT the people behind all this, Ephesians 6:12-18Easy-to-Read Version (ERV) 12 “Our fight is not against people on earth. We are fighting against the rulers and authorities and the powers of this world’s darkness. We are fighting against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenly places. 13 That is why you need to get God’s full armor. Then on the day of evil, you will be able to stand strong. And when you have finished the whole fight, you will still be standing.”

14 “So stand strong with the belt of truth tied around your waist, and on your chest wear the protection of right living. 15 On your feet wear the Good News of peace to help you stand strong. 16 And also use the shield of faith with which you can stop all the burning arrows that come from the Evil One. 17 Accept God’s salvation as your helmet. And take the sword of the Spirit—that sword is the teaching of God. 18 Pray in the Spirit at all times. Pray with all kinds of prayers, and ask for everything you need. To do this you must always be ready. Never give up. Always pray for all of God’s people.”  So our fight is in the heavenly s in prayer, “against the rulers and authorities and the powers of this world’s darkness. We are fighting against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenly places.”  

Also walk with integrity in our own homes, walk the walk. Choose leaders that do the same and understand the the principals of the founding fathers of this once great nation, Judaeo Christian principals and values. As I’ve said in other post’s I’ve started reading the bible over again and am in the Old Testament. You want to know what causes a nation or people to fall? NOT following God’s directions  rejecting His guidance and warnings. The bible say’s, Romans 15:4  “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope”. 1 Corinthians 10:11 “These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the culmination of the ages has come”.

“For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.” (Romans 15:4)

“Let no modern Christian ever think that he can ignore the Old Testament and base all his faith and practice on just the twenty-seven books of the New Testament, as vital as they are. Even the apostle Paul, who wrote more of the New Testament than anyone else, depended heavily on the Old Testament Scriptures for his exposition of the New Testament doctrines he had received “by the revelation of Jesus Christ” (Galatians 1:12).

So, what does the bible have to say? Be glad and thankful for the New Testament and Jesus Christ. If Christ hadn’t come to save us and we where still in the Old Testament times. Leviticus 20:13  “If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.”  Deuteronomy 22:5  “A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the LORD your God detests anyone who does this.” 

The destruction of Sodom Genesis 19 

“Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.” Romans 1:24  “He said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of others, but God knows your hearts. What people value highly is detestable in God’s sight.” Luke 16:15 

I think I’ll have to make this a two part post. I’ll leave you with some wisdom from Proverbs. “The wicked flee though no one pursues,but the righteous are as bold as a lion. 2When a country is rebellious, it has many rulers,but a ruler with discernment and knowledge maintains order. Read more here. Proverbs 28

See you on part two of the post hopefully, there some good commentary there.

“The angels minister to God’s servants in time of hardship and danger”.

From my devotional this morning authored by Billy Graham I took a trip down memory lane and then was taken on a journey and found some things that had been on my mind lately but honestly was probably to lazy to search for them.

From the devotional. “Hills Full of Horses”.

God’s angels often protect his servants from potential enemies. Consider 2 Kings 6:14-17 . The king of Aram had dispatched his army to Dothan, learning that Elisha the prophet was there. Upon dressing in the morning, the prophet’s helper exclaimed excitedly to Elisha that the surrounding countryside bristled with armies and implements of war. Elisha assured him, “Don’t be afraid… those who are with us are more than those who are with them”(V.16) . Elisha then prayed that God would open the eyes of the young man to see the host of protective angels: as he did so, the young man “saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.” This passage has been one of the great assurances and comforts to me in my ministry.

The angels minister to God’s servants in time of hardship and danger. We find another outstanding illustration of this Acts 27: 23-25 . Paul on his way to Rome faced shipwreck with more than two hundred others on board. Speaking to the fear ridden crew he said, “Last night an angel of God whose I am and whom I serve stood besides me and said, “do not be afraid, Paul. You must stand trial before Caesar; and God has graciously given the lives of all who sail with you” (V. 23-24) .

Some believe strongly that each Christian may have his own guardian angel assigned to watch over him or her. This guardianship possibly begins in infancy, for Jesus said, See that you do not look down on one of theses little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my father in heaven” ( Mathew 18:10 ). Author Billy Graham. Billy Graham Evangelistic Association

When I drove a bus there was this one route I used to drive that ended at the foot hills of  Idyllwild  . I loved coming to the end especially in the mornings. I was almost totally surrounded by hills and the mountain and I would look up and could see the trees in the distance on the hills and mountain that surrounded me and it would remind me of ( 2 Kings 6:14-17) in my minds eye I could see all the hosts around me and it comforted me especially on those bad days. In the morning and as the sun rose it was so beautiful and amazing to me and I thanked God for it every time and on those bad days, they didn’t turn out so bad.

When I first became a Christian, God of course started leading me and directing my steps. One of the teachers He introduced me to was Chuck Missler his website is Koinonia House . He used to speak at Calvary Chapel  Costa Mesa a long time ago and I was there most every time and really got in to his Personal Update (monthly) used to be called “K-Rate”. You can check out the subscriptions on the top right of his website. He taught and warned about islam and muslims before they where part of our vocabulary. He’s a brilliant man and has gone through a lot, himself and his wife. Anyway’s, one of the topics I really enjoyed was his views of angels, demon and end times.

I’ve enjoyed these before and am enjoying them once again. You can check out more of his video’s here on YouTube Koinonia House .  I’ve was also there when he taught at Calvary on the subject’s, it was and exciting time in my young Christian life!! I learned a lot from his teachings. I’m always amazed at God’s leading’s. When I was a young Christian He also led me into taking a course on Mormonism which came in very handy later on in my walk.

God bless America and you.

“With God advising me”, Dr Ben Carson.

This is from my devotional reading today authored by Ben Carson a presidential candidate just encase you missed it. Reminds me of my Mom, she raised four by herself and I’ve seen this work in my own life always being amazed at how bills get paid when I know I don’t bring in enough money.

“IT WILL NOT RUN DRY”

“When Ben Carson was in the tenth grade, he felt the influence of peer pressure, continually nagging his mother for an Italian knit shirt, just like “everybody else” had. His mother came up with a plan.

  “Benjamin, I’ll tell what. I’m going to turn the budget over to you. You pay for the food and take care of all the other bills. You can have what ever is left over. I’ll bring home every penny in cash and turn it over to you”…

  “You start Monday morning. Remember, after you pay all the bills, whatever is left, you can have. You can take every penny, every dime, and go downtown and buy all the Italian knit shirts you want.”

 At last I had won. No more nagging. No more begging for Italian knit and leather jackets. I could by them myself. On Monday morning, as she promised, Mother handed me all the money she had made the previous week. Then she handed me a list of expenses for things such as food, gas for the car, and utility bills. Eagerly I worked, allocating the money . Of course, long before I came to the clothing I had run out of money.

  “There isn’t any more money left,” I said as I looked up at her. I felt really dejected. All the money was gone and I still hadn’t put any money down for lunches or the telephone bill. “That’s right, Bennie. And you know I didn’t hold anything back. This about the same amount I bring in every week.” “I know that,” I said. As I looked up at her, for the first time, I felt ashamed for my insistence on Italian knits, “but… how do you do it?” I asked.

  “Only with the Lord’s help,” she said.

 That was the moment of insight for me. For the first time in my life I truly grasped the meaning of the hardship my mother lived under. No matter how often I looked at the income and compared it with what we had to pay out, it amazed me that my mother had kept [my brother] Curtis and me alive. And she did it with such style that our neighbors were convinced we were financially well off.

   “You must be a financial wizard,” I said. ” With God advising me,” she said, “I sure am!”

Like I mentioned in the beginning of the post I’v been amazed to see this at work in my own life. I’ve never received a mysterious check form some anonymous person saying God told me to give this to you or any of those other stories you may have hear about,[not saying it’s not possible] but there have been times when I was really in a jam and need big money I didn’t have and God always has come through for me in some amazing way’s. Most if not all just by things falling into place just at the right time that I never saw coming or would have imagined.108n

God bless America and you.

“Thomas Jefferson Defines What a True Republic Is”

If you took the time to read the last post House of Representatives: The Power of the Public Purse and liked it then check out this one from the same Blog.

.thomasjeffersonquoterepublicanconstitution“We shall now be so strong that we shall certainly split again; for freemen thinking differently and speakingand acting as they think, will form into classes of sentiment, but it must be under another name; that of Federalism is to become so scanted that no party can rise under it.

As the division between 1. Tory [Democrats & GOP] is founded in the nature of men, the weakly [cowardly]and nerveless, the rich and the corrupt, seeing more safety and accessibility in a strong executive;

and 2. Whig [Tea Party Republicans] the healthy, firmand virtuous feeling confidence in their physical andmoral resources, and willing to part with only so much power as is necessary for their good government, andtherefore to retain the rest in the hands of the many, the division will substantially be into Whig and Tory, as in England, formerly. ~ Thomas Jefferson to Joel Barlow, 1802

It was to escape the oppression resulting from governments controlled by the select few, so often ruling under the assumption that “might makes right,” that gave birth torepublics. Monarchial rulers refuse to recognize their accountability to the people governed by them. In a republic the converse is the rule. The tenure of office may be for ashort or a long period, or even for life, yet those in office are at all times answerable, either directly or indirectly, to the people, and in proportion to their responsibility to those for whom they may be the public agents, and the nearer the power to enact laws and control public servants lies with the great body of the people [This is referring to the House of Representatives, they are the closest to the American people because they are up for re-election every 2 years, instead of 6 like the Senate and 4 like the President. This  is also the reason the House of Representatives have the  Power of the Purse, because they are more accountable to the people and it is through the House of Reps that the people are supposed to be able to weld that power by defunding something the President is doing that the people disagree with],” Read more from the original post here. Thomas Jefferson Defines What a True Republic Is

I love it but the Ultimate Power is in God’s hands and America has forgotten that. America is a Christian country and until she wakes up and returns to her root’s there is no hope as long as we rely on “man” to make things right  and that’s what the progressives are all about. They believe they are god’s, all knowing all the while denying the true and only God all the way to hell and taking the country with them. 12527_1102387379788129_7964815829127888969_nBwbPwpnIUAEretN
