Why Fight God's Promises To Israel?

Psalm 96:4-5
4  For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.
5  For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.

The Bible, modern news, and ancient history, alike, are all filled with reports of numerous people, groups, and nations that have despised Israel and that continue to seek to destroy it. It is noteworthy that those same haters of Israel seem to equally despise God Almighty. I say that because Israel's detractors clearly ignore God's promises to Israel. Obviously, those who curse and fight against Israel do not want God's blessings on themselves.

Research Your Survival Food Supplier... BEFORE You Buy!!

There are a lot of people and companies "out there" who are selling "survival food". While most of us know that we need to be wary of the "ours is best" hype, do we really do our research before we make a purchase from a company... I mean do we really look into who they are and the details of what they are selling? Here is an example of a company that is spending a lot of time, effort, and probably money selling themselves and their products, but the reviews do not match their hype.

Here are numerous other reviews of a host of such companies. These reviews seem to be done by people who believe they are possibly going to really need to use the food someday, hence they seem to take their assessment of the long term food supplies very seriously.

Bad Leadership & Bad Citizenship Scatter Nations

As individuals, let us not deceive ourselves into thinking that we can avoid our God-given responsibility to be active participants in the moral, political, and spiritual development, protection, and general welfare of our society. We must be ready to do right AND to expose and work against the wrong doings that surround us, beginning with our own sin. Jesus sternly warned us to examine our own hypocrisies about our belief structures, our judgments, and our deeds

Here's an example of one leader whose actions caused the nation of Israel to be scattered to the four winds... because most of the people just went along with his unholy ways:

Islamic Nuclear Treaty Leader Dodges Interview Questions About Jihad

Ok, folks... I know I'm getting up in years, and I may not be as sharp a tack as I once was...
...during the 60 Minutes interview with Iranian leader Rouhani, telecast September 20, 2015, didn't it seem like Rouhani made an extra special effort to dodge every question that had anything to do with jihad?! ...especially as jihad has been focused and directed against the USA... 

Islam has been trying to gain religious and political supremacy over EVERYONE for a LONG time. How is it that so many non-Islamic people, especially in "politically correct" circles here in the USA, seem to be making an extra effort to ignore the fact of Islam's centuries long, almost eons long, spiritual, religious, and secular war on virtually everyone around them. Don't take my word for it.

There is ONLY ONE WAY OUT of this mess before it becomes a total melee.

To Be or Not To Be Seduced: Taking Responsibility For Our Own Choice To Sin

Yes, there are many who yearn to lead us into sin. BUT, let us NOT deceive ourselves into thinking that there is no penalty for choosing to allow ourselves to be seduced.

Lust & Destruction, or Wisdom & Peace

This flesh that we humans occupy will try to betray God and us in all sorts of ways. That is our own sin nature trying to assert itself over God's calling to our own spirit. If you're feeling an urge to have intimate relations (sex) with anyone other than your husband or wife, then consider what King Solomon wrote after all his vast experimentation.

Open Letter To CT Politicians: 20150921: State Police Training Facility

I have lived in Northeast CT, for 41 years, including Ashford, Coventry, Columbia, Willimantic, Windham, Willington, and Union. Like most of the people with whom I speak, we like the woodsy atmosphere, rather than city life. I’m, also, a gun owner and shooter. I’m a retiree, a combat veteran, and a very concerned citizen. I, very much, enjoy our healthy Northeast CT environment. That said, let’s look at the gun range fracas that has some folks in Willington so upset.

What does God Say About...?

A lot of people want to know what God thinks and says about a host of topics. Here's a link to a growing collection of recorded sermons delivered at Galilean Baptist Church in Stafford Springs, CT, on a variety of subjects. I hope that you find the topic for which you are searching and that these messages are a life changing encouragement to you, as they have encouraged me in my own walk with Jesus Christ. Most of these messages are geared toward people who have already trusted Christ for salvation, that we might grow in our relationship with God. This information is meant to build godly men, women, and children. This is a challenging and very refreshing alternative to the worldly, people-pleasing hype that you find in a lot of places these days. If you can't find the sermon topic you want, you can ask in the comments section of this blog, or contact the pastor of Galilean Baptist Church via the church website.

If you want a real relationship with God and you want to grow in that relationship, then this is the right place for you and me to meet, around the Word of God. Galilean Baptist Church is a Christian fellowship in which we can each take an active part to learn, work, and grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ, INSTEAD of waiting to be entertained, pacified, self-satisfied, or coddled.

What Happens To Sinful Societies?

If you want to see a prime example of what happens to sinful societies, look at the ongoing disobedience of the nation of Israel whenever they rebelled against God (even as our nation rebels against God today). Throughout history, God repeatedly warns them and they occasionally repent. Yet, Israel is the only nation in history to survive continually throughout the ages, even as God has promised. Shall we continue to mimic their sins and thereby choose to receive similar punishments, or shall we emulate Israel's times of repentance toward God, that we might receive God's blessings?

Jeremiah 14

So, what can I do to help fix this sinful situation? Here's God's solution.

The Bible or The Bayonet

The Eyes Of The Only Self-Existant God

Proverbs 15:3:
3  The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

22 And if thou say in thine heart, Wherefore come these things upon me? For the greatness of thine iniquity are thy skirts discovered, and thy heels made bare.
23  Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.
24  Therefore will I scatter them as the stubble that passeth away by the wind of the wilderness.
25  This is thy lot, the portion of thy measures from me, saith the LORD; because thou hast forgotten me, and trusted in falsehood.
26  Therefore will I discover thy skirts upon thy face, that thy shame may appear.
27a  I have seen thine adulteries, and thy neighings, the lewdness of thy whoredom, and thine abominations on the hills in the fields.

Like It Or Not... THE Name of God Is...

Like it, or not, we human beings often try to find some OTHER way to avoid doing what is clearly right in front of us, AND... like it or not, God says that He and Jesus, His Christ (also known, biblically as Immanuel or Messiah), and His Spirit are one and the same being or person. He, furthermore, warns us that if we neglect, or seek to attack, or try to avoid His truth, in any way, then we are NOT on God's side. He warns us that we shall remain at enmity with God UNTIL we personally admit, accept, AND receive God's Word and the promises that go along with recognizing who He is. This is an urgent matter for all of us to settle with Him, as this is a one life offer, with no replays and no other ways to escape

Pop News Glosses Over Iranian Anti-Israel Pseudo-prophecy

I am NOT going to rehash thousands of years of history and Bible prophecy, but it is EXTREMELY noteworthy that, in the shadow of the Obama-Iran nuclear negotiations, and the start of U.S. Senate hearings about it, that the Iranian Leader Khomeini proclaimed pseudo-prophetically that Israel will not survive the next 25 years.

OOPS!! He goofed! Obviously Khomeini does not believe the God of the Bible nor God's promises to preserve Israel until God puts all Creation to the torch (as Peter mentions in one of his letters). I'll leave it up to you to find those references for yourself, this time.

Anyone paying attention to the Bible and current events should see Khomeini's comments as an outright invitation to all those who the Bible says will eventually gather themselves together to rid the world of Israel, at the Battle of the Valley of Armageddon. The thing is, Jesus Christ Himself shall return to win THAT war FOR ISRAEL. The very word that Christ shall speak against Israel's attackers shall slaughter the attacking hordes of all the antisemitic worldly governments. The totality of that defense of Israel shall be so complete that the blood of the attackers is going to run through and fill that valley as deep as a horse's bridle. This is NO JOKE, for God has said that it shall happen.

Gird yourselves, my friends, in body, mind, and spirit, for the Iranians, at the weakness of Obama's negotiations, have thrown down the gauntlet, an open challenge to Israel, and to all haters of Israel. Be ready. Be sure you are saved the way that God says you need to be saved BEFORE Jesus comes. The coming battles shall ONLY be won in Spirit and Truth, not with the fleshly weapons of war. Yes, that is all in the Bible, also.

Yes, God Warns Pastors, Also

Most of us have heard more than one horror story about the abuses and neglects of various teachers of secular things or spiritual things, including those who claim to be preachers and teachers of what God wants or expects of humanity. Let me ask you this... are YOUR pastors, deacons, or bishops following their own inclinations, following their flocks, or going along with the worldly flow? In God's Word, the Bible, God warns everyone about that kind of spiritual corruption that will happen in the latter days, the last days, and the end times, of which Christ, the prophets, and the apostles spoke so often, even as the Holy Spirit had Paul sum up in 1 Corinthians 10:1-14.

Why Wait For Punishment When We Can Repent & Be Saved Now?

The Immutability of God's Promises:
Genesis 26:1-5
1 And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar.
2  And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:
3  Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;
4  And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;
5  Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

Dark Times? Suffering? God Is STILL Here

I must confess that I do not always remember all the wise things that God continues to teach me. Yet, I bless God for all the times when He reminds and corrects me, returning me to His ways. Even though His corrections aren't usually pleasant for my flesh, still, I praise Him for setting me straight or using me for His glory. The life and trials of Job (pronounced with long "O") show us how little we understand many things that happen around us, even as Job was in the middle of trials that God allowed and Satan all too willingly precipitated, as God proved to Satan that Job's faith could not and would not be destroyed. As with Job, so may every believer trust the promises and salvation in which God holds the souls who call upon Him, even in our darkest hours.

In Jeremiah 33:3, God says to Jeremiah, "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not." We need to remember that the full context of this passage includes the fact that God said that to His prophet when Jeremiah was in prison, not when the man was out to dinner with friends, or at the country club, or living a life of ease.

Discover Who Starts Trouble & Stop Their Evil

First, it was the Ferguson riots, then Baltimore, then provocative executions of people in church. Now there have been outright executions of police officers, with some groups, with evil intent, calling for more of the same violence. Don't tell me that there aren't people trying to ferment a revolution to overthrow our Constitution and Nation! ...and guess what!! The violence is NOT being perpetrated by all the millions of gun-owning law-abiding citizens, nor by their firearms or ammunition!!

I just got an email from Star Parker (CURE) that seeks to educate US citizens and leaders about what she and others are calling Liberal-backed executions of police officers, and I quote:
