Misery Loves Company - by Pete Garcia -
Author's note: [This was the very first article of my writing ministry for Jack Kinsella's Omega Letter. Eight years ago to the day, hundreds of articles later (I've lost count), and by the grace of God, I am still at it. Thank you to all the long time readers (and new ones) who have found our small corner of the universe. I've cherished your kind words of support over the years. I can say with all sincerity, that there have been many times I wanted to quit, but the Lord has moved you to share a word of encouragement with me, and that was enough to sustain my conviction that this was what I was supposed to be doing.
Now it seems I am back to where I started (in a manner of speaking), with the gifting of the Omega Letter website to me by the Kinsella and Velemirovich families. Not entirely sure how to proceed, but I do covet your prayers for guidance and discernment on how to move forward with two websites. There is the one I began at and have so much history with; and the other, my own, who I have come to love as well.]
"Part of every misery is, so to speak, the misery's shadow or reflection: the fact that you don't merely suffer but have to keep on thinking about the fact that you suffer. I not only live each endless day in grief, but live each day thinking about living each day in grief."-CS Lewis
We see it every day; suffering is common amongst every country, and every people. Suffering varies from people and place; to some it's internal, and they struggle daily or even hourly for sanity or clarity. To some it is external, and it is an environment placed upon them by either too much or too little of something. None of us choose to be born who we are...we are born and then learn as we grow up what hand God has dealt us.
I grew up on the bottom side of the middle class. We weren't stuck eating mayonnaise and cracker sandwiches breakfast, lunch, and dinner...but we definitely didn't have the best of everything either. Growing up I felt a tinge of envy at those who had more than I did, because I believed on some level, that happiness was found in things. I didn't appreciate the things I did have and therefore felt cheated somehow. It wasn't until I went on a church youth trip to a border town in Mexico did I truly appreciate everything I had.
We went to the Matamoros city dump, a sprawling 20 acres of trash, filth, and sewage. To my surprise, people lived there. One lady we met lived literally in a house comprised of various forms of card board. The running water was the open sewer stream next to her hut. The worst part was, she had young children living with her. I don't know if she is still alive or what became of her kids, but that was one of those definable moments in my life were I became a little more appreciative of all the blessing's God has given me.
I don't pretend to know all why God allows certain things in the lives of believers', but I know that hardships, whatever flavor they come in, produce resolve in the believer. A certain hardness that doesn't make us inflexible, but makes us unbreakable. I don't remember where I heard the analogy, but I think it fits along the same lines of thought:
The same sun which hardens the clay melts the wax.
The sun doesn't change, it's the materials that it lights upon who react in different ways. Do we take our problems and lather ourselves with misery and pity? Or do we find strength in our situations, whether internal or external, and hand them over to God? I know, I know...easy to say, and hard to do. Doing it, and being consistent in doing it, is a moment by moment slow moving picture reel. It's taking each problem, circumstance, event, and giving it to the Father, and then moving on and letting go.
Peter, moved by the Holy Spirit, shows us how we are to live as Christians
"For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ". 2 Peter 1:5-8
Now I don't think that my woes of a lower middle class upbringing compares to something like cancer, or abuse, but we all at some point or another lie awake at night praying "Why me God?". Our trials are not unknown to God, nor were they before He created the world. On some level I have begun to understand, that we are chosen for our trials. If God thought we could never rise above them, than I don't think we would have received it. Paul chronicles his troubles:
"Five times I received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was pelted with stones, three times I was shipwrecked, I spent a night and a day in the open sea, I have been constantly on the move. I have been in danger from rivers, in danger from bandits, in danger from my fellow Jews, in danger from Gentiles; in danger in the city, in danger in the country, in danger at sea; and in danger from false believers." 2 Corinthians 11:24-26
So if our troubles, sufferings, calamities, persecutions, afflictions, or whatever befalls us in this life, seem to overwhelm us, let us take solace in a verse that places our problems in some sort of perspective, from the same guy who penned the previous verse.
"For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all." 2 Corinthians 4:17
Rejoice in the Lord. We may not know what God has in store for us, but He knows, and as we move through this life, let's take account of the things God has blessed you with.
"Some people feel guilty about their anxieties and regard them as a defect of faith but they are afflictions, not sins. Like all afflictions, they are, if we can so take them, our share in the passion of Christ." - CS Lewis
Palestinians and the Bahrain Conference: Condemning Arabs While Asking for Arab Money
- by Khaled Abu Toameh -
In 2009, the late Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdel Aziz announced his country's decision to donate $1 billion to contribute to the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip.
The monarch made his announcement during an Arab economic conference in Kuwait. The Saudi pledge never materialized, mainly because of the continued dispute between the Hamas rulers of the Gaza Strip and Mahmoud Abbas's Palestinian Authority (PA) in the West Bank.
The king undoubtedly had good intentions and sought to help his Palestinian brothers, especially the two million residents of the Gaza Strip who remain in dire need of financial and economic assistance.
When King Abdullah bin Abdel Aziz died six years later, the Palestinians did not hesitate to show their contempt for the Arab leader who had offered to help improve their living conditions and ensure a better future for Palestinian children.
The contempt was so intense that Palestinian worshippers at Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem booed down a preacher, Ismail Nawahdeh, who mourned the death of the Saudi king. As Nawahdeh read the statement, hundreds of Palestinians began shouting slogans denouncing the late monarch.
A decade has passed since King Abdullah bin Abdel Aziz offered the $1 billion donation to the Gaza Strip, but it seems that nothing has changed in the world of the Palestinians. The Palestinians are now incensed with Saudi Arabia and some other Arab states for agreeing to attend a US-led conference in Bahrain. The main purpose of the conference, held under the banner "Peace to Prosperity," is to help the Palestinians build a prosperous and vibrant society. "With the potential to facilitate more than $50 billion in new investment over 10 years, the plan presents the most ambitious and comprehensive international effort for the Palestinian people to date," according to the plan, which was released on June 22 and will be presented to participants of the Bahrain economic conference.
As expected, the Palestinians, who are boycotting the Bahrain conference, have rejected the plan, dubbing it a "bribe" to entice the Palestinians to relinquish their "national rights." While the Palestinian rejection of the plan did not come as a surprise, their strong condemnations of the Arab states that have agreed to attend the Bahrain conference are an indication of the disdain in which the Palestinians hold Arab leaders and governments.
In the past week, Palestinian officials and factions were unanimous in making a last-minute appeal to the Arab states to heed the Palestinian call for boycotting the economic conference in Manama, Bahrain. The largest Palestinian faction, Fatah, headed by Mahmoud Abbas, said in several statements that anyone who attends the conference would be considered a traitor. Fatah also went a step further by urging Arabs to stage demonstrations in front of Bahrain's embassies in their capitals.
The Palestinian strategy is clear: to incite the Arab masses against their leaders and governments. The Palestinian attacks are no longer directed against US President Donald Trump and his "Zionist" advisers, Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt and US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman. Now the targets are the Arab heads of state, particularly those who are seen by Palestinians are being in collusion with Israel and the Trump administration.
The late Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdel Aziz, despite his desire and ambition to help the Palestinians have better lives, was ridiculed after his death. The Palestinian refusal to mourn him during Muslim prayer at Al-Aqsa Mosque is the most degrading act a Muslim can perform against a fellow Muslim.
It is as if the Palestinians were saying that King Abdullah bin Abdel Aziz was a bad Muslim and a traitor -- and, as such, he did not deserve to be honored in a mosque. Such disgrace is generally reserved for Muslims who commit the most serious sins and crimes.
As the Palestinians were condemning Arabs for agreeing to attend the conference in Bahrain, Palestinian leaders repeated their appeal to the Arab states for financial aid. On the one hand, the Palestinians are condemning Arab countries for attending a conference aimed at boosting the Palestinian economy and improving living conditions in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. On the other hand, Palestinian leaders have no problem begging their Arab brothers for urgent financial aid.
The Arabs, however, seem to have become familiar with Palestinian tactics and, other than lip service, they are not poised to part with their money in the near future in favor of the Palestinians.
On June 23, Arab foreign ministers were scheduled to meet in Cairo to discuss the Palestinian appeal for a "financial security net" from the Arab states, on the pretext that Abbas and his government are facing a severe financial crisis and are unable to pay full salaries to their employees. This is not the first time that most of the Arab states meet to discuss the "financial crisis" facing the Palestinians.
The Palestinians, for their part, are not pinning high hopes on the Arabs, particularly in light of the Arabs' failure to fulfill previous promises of financial aid. The Palestinians are asking the Arabs to give them $100 million each month to help them "face political and financial pressure" from Israel and the US administration.
In the coming days, the Palestinians are expected to step up their attacks and denunciations of the Arab states for being in collusion with Israel and the Trump administration. Mass protests planned in the West Bank and Gaza Strip during the meeting of the conference in Bahrain will also see Palestinians strongly condemning Arab "traitors" who attended the economic workshop.
The Palestinians realize that some of the key Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates, are no longer prepared to wait for them and have decided to board the train whose final destination is prosperity and economic opportunities for both Palestinians and Arabs.
The Bahrain conference could mark the beginning of a "divorce" between the Palestinians and many Arab countries. The Palestinians may soon discover that their Arab brothers have priorities that supersede the Palestinians' everlasting financial self-immolation, priorities such as the Iran threat and their own new economic uncertainty.
The Palestinians had nothing to lose by attending the Bahrain conference or accepting the economic plan. Instead, they chose to reject the billions of dollars the US economic plan is offering them and incite their people against Israel and the Trump administration. Even more serious is the Palestinian effort to incite Arab masses against their leaders - a step that is sure to aggravate tensions between the Palestinians and the Arab world.
In a scenario that is best characterized as bizarre, the Palestinians' denunciation of Arab heads of state as traitors comes at the very moment that they are banging down their doors, begging for cash.
This time, however, the Arab leaders are refusing to be the Palestinians' suckers. The image of the Palestinians' posthumous humiliation of the late Saudi king is difficult to forget.
The decision of six Arab states to attend the Bahrain conference despite the Palestinian boycott call shows that the Arabs have chosen to endorse a new direction - one that will leave the Palestinians to fend for themselves in a hell of their own making. For their choice to thumb their noses not only at the US but also at influential Arab states, the Palestinians are likely to emerge as the biggest losers.
Nearing Midnight: Anti-Semitism a Sure Signal - Terry James - https://www.raptureready.com/category/nearing-midnight/
Sometime ago, I wrote the following in an article that had the title "Israelicide":
Forewarning of the fate that the nations of earth face leaps from Bible prophecy. Those who make Jerusalem and Israel the object of hatred will pay a terrible price. And make no mistake, the city and nation (Jewish people) are inextricably linked: "And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth are gathered together against it" (Zechariah 12:3).
To "burden themselves" with Jerusalem and with Israel (Judah) in this case means to come against the city and people in a hostile sense. God is saying through Zechariah that at the end of the age, near the consummation of His dealing with this earth system, all nations of earth will make Jerusalem and His chosen people the center of their anger and aggression. The aggressors against God's city (Jerusalem, the apple of his eye-see Zechariah 2:8) and the Jewish people will result in devastation for those attackers.
Perhaps it's just the old advertising guy in me, but I want to coin a new word-"Israelicide"-for what the nations of the world are doing. The word means two things in my thinking: 1) to commit satanically inspired genocide against the Jewish race; and 2) the collective suicide of Israel's enemies whose coalescing unity of mind curses Israel.
Since the time I wrote that article, a new presidential administration has come to power. President Donald J. Trump has formed a close relationship with our strongest ally in the Middle East-or anywhere else for that matter. Whereas Mr. Obama made the statement right off the bat after coming to power following the 2008 election that he would put "daylight" between America and Israel.
Obama, indeed, proceeded to do exactly that. We remember that upon Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to the White House, President Obama treated him shabbily. He left the prime minister after a very short visit and went to have dinner in the White House private quarters. it was a deliberate snub that set the tone for the entire Obama presidency.
Mr. Trump, on the other hand, has warmly embraced his friend Bibi and the Jewish nation. A majority in Israel have reciprocated with warm friendship upon the president's actions. There are many places within Israel being named after Donald Trump. Some religionists consider him the second coming of Cyrus, who befriended Israel's people millennia ago.
This indicates that all is improved in regard to Israel's welcome into the world community, right? Wrong... Not at all.
Statistics show anti-Israel bias is on the rise-even in America. It seems to follow the pattern of the insane rage against Israel's close friend, Donald J. Trump.
As reported earlier, New York City, where the heaviest Jewish population in the U.S. resides, saw a massive 82 percent rise in anti-Semitic hatred in the first three months of 2018 alone, according to the New York Police Department. The Anti-Defamation League's 2018 audit of anti-Semitic incidents found that there was an even bigger rise of anti-Semitic hate crime in New York State- an increase of 170 percent from the third to the fourth quarter of 2018.
Perhaps the most troubling aspect of growing anti-Semitism in America is that taking place on American college campuses. Again, in my view, this seems to closely follow the hellish course of anti-Trump hatred, fomented, I believe, by radical leftist professors, aided and abetted by the Democrat Party and the main stream news and entertainment media.
The so-called conservative voice continues to be completely muzzled by colleges and universities for the most part. We have heard time after time of even well known speakers who put forth the conservative viewpoint being prevented from carrying out previously agreed-to speaking events. The conservative voices almost all advocate for Israel as the national entity that is legitimately a nation being accosted. The left-in my opinion now a victim of a collective reprobate mind as forewarned in Romans chapter 1-see Israel as the "occupier" of land belonging to the Palestinians. Thus, although there was never such a people known as Palestinians before the end of World War I.
It is dumbfounding that even some self-acclaimed evangelicals join the chorus of Israel illegitimately occupying territory belonging to the Palestinian pretenders.
The young who have no understanding of truth about the Israel-vs-Palestinian issues because they have been grossly under educated or lied to by their leftist professors are suffering an increasing, collective anxiety. They fear Israel will precipitate a conflict that will morph into worldwide nuclear war. This, they are taught in many cases.
Such deliberately spawned hatred for Israel among the colleges and universities has been among other factors bringing about a forum to address these things. A brief news excerpt follows.
Moderating a panel in Jerusalem this week titled "The Mainstreaming of Anti-Semitism: The Media, BDS and Celebrated Bigotry," David Hazony, executive director of the Israel Innovation Fund, analyzed the issue right off the bat: "What you are seeing on [North American college] campuses is only a thin slice of the anti-Semitic beast that has emerged in our public life around the world in the last six months, in the last year."
The event was hosted by the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis (CAMERA), in partnership with the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA) and Hazony's organization.
Hazony added, "All of a sudden, The New York Times' editorial-page cartoons; all of a sudden, columns; all of a sudden, valedictory addresses, commencement speeches, congressional convocations, politicians-all of a sudden in America, you've got synagogues being shot up, synagogues being torched. All of a sudden, what we thought had been hidden, gone away, has come roaring back."
He went on to ask: "Is it possible that anti-Semitism and assimilation-the two great crises facing the Diaspora today-are really two sides of the same coin?"
"At a time when the next generation of Jews feels less connection, has less knowledge, has less commitment to our collective than any generation in the past," he continued, "is it any wonder that this monster that's been lurking in the deep smells blood, smells weakness and chooses this time to rear its head?". (Jerusalem Conference Addresses Recent Spike of Jew-Hatred in US, Breaking Israel News | Latest News. Biblical Perspective By JNS, June 14, 2019)
The growing anti-Semitic hatred in the US-supposedly Israel's ally and best friend-indicates the level of hatred Satan is ratcheting up around the world. I believe it is a global hatred against God's chosen nation, around which those who ultimately will follow Antichrist will rally.
Israel and America are almost alone as major national players that stand against a ravenous, globalist hunger to bring down all national boundaries. The hatred for this president by the one-world, no-national-boundaries collective, makes it obvious how near Christ's call must be to the Church.
With the Church removed to Heaven, God's program for again dealing with Israel in order to bring about a remnant of the Jewish people for Christ's Millennial kingdom, will then get underway. Most all the world will come against Israel and Jerusalem at the time of Armageddon. They will all be destroyed, just as the Gog-Magog forces of Ezekiel 38-39 that will have attacked Israel earlier. Israel will be the last nation standing.
"And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your descendants after you. And I will give to you and to your descendants after you, the land of your sojourning, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God." (Genesis 17:7-8)
Power - By Hal Lindsey -
The internet ad says, "Find strength in knowing your options." The theme is typical of advertisements across all media. Empowerment, strength, authority, and control provide the main selling points in commercial after commercial. Madison Avenue has been selling us things for a long time. They know what they're doing. They keep their fingers on the pulse of what people long for and what they fear.
And it's obvious that right now the people of planet earth long for control and power. They fear being weak and vulnerable.
These themes echo throughout society. New government programs, new businesses, new products, new computer apps, and even non-profit organizations almost always promise to "empower" people in some way.
We are also entertained by power. For decades, superheroes were marketed to children. Psychologists say that children like to identify with superheroes because children feel small, vulnerable, and powerless. But these characters have now gone mainstream. Their popularity crosses demographic lines, cultures, countries, socio-economic groups, and language. What does that say about how people are feeling? It says that many adults feel as vulnerable as children. They sense impending doom and feel powerless to stop it.
The phenomenon is worldwide. In recent years, almost all the world's highest grossing movies featured characters with a superpower. In Star Wars films, Jedi knights use "the force" to access the supernatural. As far as I know, Marvel films are always about superheroes and their powers. And Harry Potter indulges the fantasy of tapping into a power called magic.
Perhaps people feel weak and vulnerable at this point in history because massive governments can do what they want and seemingly get away with it. Giant corporations seem to have similar power. People also feel economically vulnerable. Nations across the world now teeter on the edge of a debt crisis that threatens to bring down economies everywhere. The veneer of civilization feels thinner than ever.
People feel vulnerable in all kinds of ways. Get your wording wrong in an email to a friend, and you could lose your job and your reputation. In the United States, we used to believe in "innocent until proven guilty." But in many ways that has been reversed. People feel vulnerable to accusation as never before in this country.
Fear of global warming has turned even the most secular among us into believers in a coming apocalypse. Climate scientists might as well walk around Times Square wearing sandwich signs that say, "The End is Near." But people don't look at them as kooks. They believe it. And whether a danger is real or not, if people believe it, they feel vulnerable. That sense of vulnerability will grow as we go deeper into the end times. It will eventually lead to the Antichrist and False Prophet rising to prominence with a message of empowerment.
But God tells us to trust Him. Walk in faith, knowing that He is good, and He has made certain promises. Those promises are better than money in the bank - infinitely better! Put your life in His hands, then trust Him to hold you securely forever. If you're tempted to feel fear or anxiety, pray. Philippians 4:6 in the New Living Translation says, "Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything."
Remember that Jesus said to pray in His name, using His righteousness and His authority as you stand before God the Father. Nehemiah 9:32 calls Him, "The great, the mighty, and the awesome God, who keeps covenant and lovingkindness." Ephesians 1:19 speaks of, "The surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe." Revelation 19:6 calls Him "the Lord God omnipotent." That means He is all-powerful.
And He loves you. You don't need an imaginary superhero. Jesus gives you access to real power, and real peace.
Daily Jot: Deception, disruption, duplicity and dishonesty - Bill Wilson - www.dailyjot.com
The mainstream media and Democratic Party presidential hopefuls are taking President Donald Trump to task for sounding the alarm on Iran and then pulling back. They say he went against his repeated campaign promises to not telegraph military actions as did his predecessor. They say it was reckless foreign policy and Joe Biden went so far as to say that it was "a self-inflicted disaster." Biden said that Trump walking away from the Iranian nuclear deal actually was a breakdown in diplomacy that will allow Iran to make a nuclear weapon and that Trump was failing to protect national security by not securing a stable energy supply through the Straights of Hormuz. The facts speak otherwise.
The Iranian nuclear deal actually gave Iran the green light and over a billion American dollars in cash to continue its nuclear development. The previous president admitted his deal with the terrorist-sponsoring nation only prevented nuclear weapons for 10 years. Trump did not telegraph his military action against Iran, he was actually using an old Teddy Roosevelt foreign policy tactic-speak softly and carry a big stick. The "big stick" was a threatened attack on Iran for shooting down an American drone in international airspace. The "speak softly" was the offer to discuss issues between Iran and the US rather than go to war over them.
For these Democratic Party presidential candidates to decry the horrible situation in the Middle East as Trump's fault, and the media to allow their statements to stand without challenge is blatantly irresponsible on both parts. The Middle East is an extraordinary mess because of Arab Spring where the previous Administration supported the terrorist organization Muslim Brotherhood fomenting revolution throughout the region and destabilizing or overthrowing governments. The Democratic Party hopefuls' foreign policy is to support policies that create problems, and then blame the problems on the guy who tries to fix them. Some of the things they are saying defy common sense and expose their deadly weaknesses.
We do not need another war. America is far too long in the wars in the Middle East. We have lost too many of our sons and daughters, too many are maimed for life because America is the world police against Islamic aggression. If he does nothing more the rest of his presidency, Donald Trump did the right thing by showing restraint and trying to negotiate peace with Iran, which has gone way too far in its own warmongering. All the political forces are shouting "WAR" in Trump's ear, yet they will be the first to criticize him if he takes the bait or criticize him if he doesn't. Christ said in Matthew 5:9, "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God." Peace is a tough business, especially when you have Islam, the media and political hypocrites working deception, disruption, duplicity and dishonesty.
Daily Devotion: The Scalpel of the Holy Spirit - by Greg Laurie - www.harvest.org
Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, 'Men and brethren, what shall we do?' - Acts 2:37
Peter was going for broke. Standing with the Eleven on the Day of Pentecost, he said to the crowd, "Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ" (Acts 2:36).
Talk about taking a risk. They could have killed Peter for saying that. I wonder if Peter thought, "Okay, maybe I cowered before the opinion of someone I didn't even know by that fire in the courtyard, but those days are gone. I have new power now. I have the Holy Spirit permeating my life. And I'm going to tell the truth."
To show you that his message was the right one, look at their reaction: "Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, 'Men and brethren, what shall we do?'" (verse 37). This could be translated, "They were pierced to the heart." This phrase appears only here in the New Testament, and it means "to pierce" or "stab." Thus, it depicts something sudden and unexpected. It was the conviction of the Holy Spirit.
We all have been stabbed in the back, but have you ever been stabbed in the heart? It's when someone says something to you that isn't easy to hear. The reason it hurt is because they were right. It feels like a horrible thing, but it is a good thing. Don't think of it as a sword killing you; think of it as a scalpel in the hand of a surgeon who's saving your life and cutting the cancer out.
At Pentecost, the people were stabbed in the heart by the scalpel of the Holy Spirit. There was a sense inside that they needed to get right with God.
