WHAT DOES THE BLOG NAME MEAN?


2 Timothy 2:1 Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
5 And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.

We cannot avoid the affairs of life mentioned in Verse 4. But, we must be very sure that we do not become entangled in them. We must, through Christ and uncommon sense, master the affairs of life.

Hardness in Verse 3 is what we today call "hard times". So, good soldiers simply endure. Millions of saints and sinners have survived hard times before us. Have we learned from them, or will we repeat all the dumb choices? Hmmmmmmm

WHAT ABOUT MUSLIM IMMIGRANTS INTO THE USA?


There are a large number of Americans who believe that immigrants are nothing but intruders. This attitude is heavily felt toward illegal Mexicans who cross the border. 

But, many people also feel that Muslims should be restrained. They fear that Islam will overwhelm the USA and the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Let us think carefully. Here is Thomas Schirrmacher from Germany speaking on this very topic. His message is exactly the same and in context in the USA.

YOU FELL
ARE YOU LAYING IN THE GRAVEL MOANING?


The whole message of the Bible is about men and woman falling, all of us. It is also about those same men and women being given a new start and being invited by Jesus Christ to finish the race set before them.




Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

MASAI CHRISTIANS SING ABOUT THEIR HOPE IN CHRIST


When I was a kid growing up in Kenya many Christians in that country assumed the Masai might never really take an interest in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Masai are one of those rare cultures who had a benevolent God concept, but they had almost no superstition or fear of devils and spirits. They were a near vacuum in the spiritual part of life.

God had other ideas. The Gospel HAS been received by the Masai people. Many have come into Christ. A friend of mine has gone to Kenya twice to be the cook for a Masai pastor. He had a great time being the White man cooking for the African pastor. Roll reversal, but more than that, a testimony to the work of the Holy Spirit in true believers.

So, listen to this song of hope that was born in Africa, not imported:



AND, the old men sing praise to God too:

I CONTROL THE BUTTER




While attending a dinner, newly elected Senator Bill Bradley asked the waiter for an extra pat of butter. The waiter said, "Sorry, one pat per person."

The emcee overheard and demanded: "Do you know who this is? This is Bill Bradley! All-American from Princeton. All-Pro with the Knicks. U.S. senator! Potential president!"

The waiter responded, "Do you know who I am?"

The emcee replied, "I guess I don't. Tell me."

The waiter said, "I'm the guy who controls the butter!"

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. Even a powerful person needs the person who controls the butter. Each person and each person's job is important—in the high calling of our daily work.

AMERICANS ARE NOW SLAVES TO VISA AND MASTERCARD


We have been expecting this news for about a year. Americans will not stop spending their way along, in spite of the fact that inflation is rising far faster than wage increases. When this happens, there are two choices:


1. Cut back on ALL non-essentials, and buy down your own debt as fast as possible.


2. TANK. We all will crash personally and as a nation. 


The Gross National Product will crash, and there will be a run away spiral into oblivion. This has never before happened in US history. All crashes in the past were not accompanied by massive personal debt along with national terminal debt.

In the end, the biblical law of finance will take hold, and YOU CANNOT STOP IT, AND THE FEDS WILL NOT STOP IT-- China will own America.


Proverbs 22:7 The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.


I wonder if Solomon would not be horrified if he saw the USA predicament? The borrower is servant to the lender (rich), and the rich are servant to China.


You need to read about STRONG DELUSION.


1 in 4 have more credit card debt than savings.



Now, the Feds are squeezing the banks to stop charging fees on debit cards, and the banks are fighting back. This has nothing to do with the above discussion except to say this-- when the war to claim your last nickel is raging between the Feds and the banks, YOU will be used as blackmail by both the Feds and the banks. WATCH THIS


So, after the debit cards are found to be a bad idea, what will the Feds do to force you to pay off your debts?


Oooops, wrong order of thinking process. First, understand what predicament the Feds and IRS are in. You have little of no cash on hand, you are maxed in credit card debt, and you have too little in income to use either your credit card of checking account anymore. 


Result, you will hit the last resource-- try to put off of avoid paying your income tax. The Feds are looking at a massive shortfall in April when tax payment come due with self-employed and those who do not have enough deductions. What will the Feds do? The ONLY think left to do:


1. Call in gold.


2. A bank holiday, in which they will reopen the banks and limit withdrawals..... and


3. A cap on credit card debt. This will likely be a percentage spending limit on all future credit card debt balances on an al a carte basis. Technology can pull this off nicely.


The result will be instant poverty if you have no cash on hand. A vast percentage of home loans will soon be foreclosed. When the money stops flowing, it is all over. There is no precedent in US history to predict what will happen next.


So, if Obama plays games with banks, gold, and credit cards, he will give the next election to Ron Paul. The Republicans will be forced to beg Paul, and Cain for VP, to rescue them. Romney will look like part of the problem because of his big government and big business image.


The fat lady is singing folks.
