What if America were a dictatorship, or perhaps a monarchy? A dictatorship usually has a negative connotation; and a monarchy, not as feared; but no matter what the case, it can be good or bad, depending upon the individual in charge. A dictatorship in America may sound preposterous and unthinkable because it is not a part of our constitution; but really, we have seen it before not too far back in our history; the prime example being the jew, Abraham Lincoln and the War Between the States.
Is it possible that America could come under a dictatorship? We wouldn’t think so; but this week I discovered something I had not previously known. It is a law revealed in the following post.
Scripture Reading: Psalm 15:1: “LORD, who shall abide in Thy tabernacle? Who shall dwell in the holy hill?
What great questions in today's scripture reading! These are some of the greatest questions that could be asked by man. What is your answer to these two questions that are asked by King David? What is the answer given by the God of David? The answer is given in the rest of the verses of this short Psalm.
The word “abide” means to dwell there continually. It does not mean to visit or to be a guest or spend a short time in worshipping there. The ungodly might worship in the earthly tabernacle, but would they abide in the city where God lives forever?
Events are history. Most events revolve about wars and their aftermath. War winners write the history. If one does not have a reason to know better he must accept the victor’s version — there is nothing else he can do. The victor’s version is often twisted or downright wrong.
When a person has lived on the same land as his ancestors for ten generations, the history handed down to him is often different. He has a personal interest in it. A different history results in a different worldview. Not only is his worldview often different — it can be the correct one while the official version is not.
To many, the road to Richmond is just another Virginia two land back-road; trees, creeks, hills, an occasional unworked farm. I know the road and have had reason to travel it countless times. It crosses battlegrounds, a scalping place, a massacre, worked out coal mines, a canal — the list goes on. It seems that every rock and hill has a story. The road is a long memory trail.
What is heresy?Who among us are the heretics? Can we tell, or count, the Heretics among us, if we have little or no idea what Heresy is? We are 3 Questions into this Lesson. Have we even finished the 1st Paragraph? Are we belly up dead in the water already? If we have trouble with Investigation, shall we turn to Confession? Who, among us, is willing to have a good Confession before God“I am an Heretic!”? Volunteers, raise your right hand. Let the record of this proceeding show that we have one hand raised and it is mine. This is troublesome. At this point, let us ask, what does The LORD God require of us?
God requires us “to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God.”Man translates H120 Adam, aw-dawm’. “He hath shewed thee, O Adam, what is good.” If we do justly, love mercy, as our Heavenly Father does, are we acting like Family? How important is it to know from God what is good? Do we know what is good apart from Him?
“To the chief Musician upon Nehiloth [flute or wind instruments: perforated pipe], A Psalm of David.
1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. 3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. 5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity. 6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak lies: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
7 But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple. 8 Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.
9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue. 10 Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.
11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. 12 For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.” – Psalm 5
The personal prayer of King David (Ps. 5) and the national lament and prayer of Israel (Ps. 44).
Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 7:6 “For thou art an holy people[Israel; with whom the everlasting covenant was made] unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto Himself, aboveall people that are upon the face of the earth.”
And now we come to the fifth part of this series. What other issue does neither party endorse? What issue do both parties condemn? Both parties are in total agreement that their view on white supremacy and white privilege is racist, and that it is an evil, horrible sin. They both agree that there should be no group of people who are somehow above all other groups. They totally ignore or explain away that Deuteronomy 7:6 and the many other verses in the Bible that teaches that the God of the Bible chose a racial people (not people out of all races) to be a special people to Himself! And they also totally ignore that there is another mongrel group who hates and wants to kill the people who the LORD God chose!
The books of Isaiah and Psalms are the most often quoted by the writers of the New Testament. The hymn that Jesus sang with his Apostles at the Last Supper was likely the Egyptian Hallel (Pss. 113-118) or a part of it. In the agony of the cross, Jesus meditated upon Psalm 22:1, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” (Matt. 27:46; Mk. 15:34). And, according to Luke 23:46, it was with the words from Psalm 31:5, “Into thine hand I commit my spirit…” that He died. The hymns that Paul and Silas sang in the Philippian jail (Acts 16:25) were probably some of the Psalms. Paul recommended the singing of Psalms to the congregations addressed in Ephesus (Eph. 5:19) and Colossae (Col.3:16).

The above scripture teaches that a certain nation, Edom, prevented the nation of Israel from passing through their territory in a peaceful way; even after they had promised to pay for the water that their cattle and they would drink out of their streams. Seems like there was some hatred between these two groups of people! As a result, Israel started on their last phase of their journey to Canaan, going around both Edom and Moab, to come into the promised land from the east of the Jordan River.
This is the fourth part of the series, “Evil Good and Good Evil.” The series explains that there are many of our LORD God’s laws that He has given to us that are not in either the Republican or Democratic party platforms.
Greetings Kindred and Fellow Sheep. We are on a FirstName Basis here. My name is Walter. In the Roman Gregorian calendar Year of Our Lord, [Anno Domini in the Latin], Two thousand twenty, the greater number of State Governors declared Panic-demic Emergencies. They issued Emergency Orders forbidding Churchianity from assembling.
Isaiah 26:20 Come, my people, enter thouinto thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
“Hide thyself ... until the indignation be overpast.” What is “The Indignation?” In Greenville, Mississippi, the police interdicted an assembly of cars on a meetinghouse parking lot on “Palm Sunday” telling pastor and people the Governor’s Emergency Order cancels Constitutional Rights. They issued citations subjecting them to a potential fine of $500.00. The Governor of the State of Maryland issued a Proclamation declaring the Easter Bunny!! an Essential Industry! Is there any second witness to God decreeing His People to hide themselves? Do we have second witness to the end time Prophet Isaiah?
