The Last Days and the Left's Lies (Part 1) - By Sean Gooding - https://www.raptureready.com/2019/10/22/last-days-lefts-lies-sean-gooding/
Proverbs 29:18 "Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; But happy is he who keeps the law."
This verse is often used as a catalyst for people in churches to 'cast a vision'; they have some goal in the future that they wish to attain, and they use this verse as a springboard for their vision. Some claim that God has given them a vision and, as such, this now becomes the defining focus of their lives. But nothing could be further from the truth. This verse is actually talking about the proper teaching of the Word of God. Where there is no clear teaching of the Word of God - no proper expository, contextual teaching of the Word of God - people, referring to the society around us, cast off restraint; they are unable to control themselves. I recently read this account offered by a dear brother in the Lord who is a student of History:
On OCTOBER 11, 1798, President John Adams wrote to the 1st Brigade of the 3rd Division of the Militia of Massachusetts: "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net." Adams continued: "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
British Statesman Edmund Burke told the National Assembly, 1791: "What is liberty without virtue? It is the greatest of all possible evils...madness without restraint. Men are qualified for civil liberty in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their own appetites." Edmund Burke continued: "Society cannot exist, unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere; and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without."
U.S. Speaker of the House Robert Winthrop stated on May 28, 1849: "Men, in a word, must be controlled either by a power within them, or a power without them; either by the word of God, or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible or by the bayonet."
Here we see that these very wise men understood that man will not control himself. He must have the Word of God preached and taught or the government will be forced to control him. The Bible is the foundation of all moral law. In it we find right and wrong very clearly laid out so that even a child will know them. King David wrote this in Psalm 119:11-16,
"Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. Blessed art thou, O Lord: teach me thy statutes. With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth. I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches. I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways. I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word."
The first part is familiar to many; God's word memorized in our hearts and minds helps us to stop sinning against God. We will still fail; we live in the flesh but we will fail less. We will sin less, but in this life we will not be sinless. God's Word is a restraint to sin and lawlessness, but it is only effective if people know it. Like medicine, it is only going to fight the universal infection of sin if it is taken in consistent doses. Lately, the attacks on those that are Christians have become more and more overt, and frankly more and more acceptable to the masses. This was reported by Fox News on October 3rd, 2019, and confirmed by Ben Shapiro on his news as well:
"Dr. David Mackereth, 56, a National Health Service employee, was fired from his post at the Department for Work and Pensions in July because he would not use a transgender pronoun, saying he believes 'gender is defined by biology and genetics' and the 'Bible teaches us that God made humans male or female.'"
Over the past 50+ years, we have allowed the Left-leaning politicians to take the teaching of the Bible out of the public view, beginning with the schools; and we have a generation of children that simply does not know that there are only two (2) genders. All else are mental issues and used to be considered so until the 'revelation of the Bible' was moved out of the public sphere. Sadly, the main issue is not the Left-leaning politicians; it is that the Lord's 'churches' are not teaching the truth either. Many are not teaching the truth; every sermon is about how good we are and how God is bringing us from one season to the next, and the idea of sowing seeds, and on and on we go. Look, the Bible has all of that; but first and foremost, we are told by the apostle Paul that the scripture is given to us for doctrine first, but also for other things. See 2 Timothy 3:16-17,
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."
Notice the order: doctrine, then reproof and correction, then instruction in righteousness, and then we are furnished "unto good works." All reproof must be based on doctrine. Doctrines are the fundamental and eternal principles that are clearly laid out in the Holy Scriptures. Here are a few of the doctrines that we find clearly laid out in the scriptures:
We can go on, but all of these are doctrines; these are the rules that God has set up for us to live by, for us to govern society by, and to have order and, yes, restraint. In Judges 21:6 and 17:25, we are told that "in those days they had no king, and every man did what was right in his own eyes." If we pair this with Jeremiah 17:9, that man's heart is deceitfully wicked, then we see that when men do what is right in their own eyes, it is almost always evil and sinful. In Deuteronomy 17:18 we are told that the King that rules Israel was to have a copy of the Law with him at all times so he could govern justly. You see, the Law restrained the King, and the King obeying the law judged the people, properly executing justice.
The Left ideologies are that we don't need God, we don't need the Word of God, and we can simply live to please ourselves and all will be well. When left to ourselves without the Word of God, we never choose what is right. We need the restraint of the Bible to help us. We, the Lord's people, with our voting record, have allowed the Left to take away the Bible from the public view, taken them from our schools, diminished free speech and limited where and how we can use the Bible. The NFL just tried to fine a man from one of the teams for wearing a headband saying "Man of God." This used to be celebrated, but now it is vilified.
In an article from June 8, 2017, about a man named Russell Vought who was nominated by the President for the Office of Management and Budget, Bernie Sanders made it clear that he, Vought, was unfit for the job as he was a devout Christian who believed that Jesus was the only way of salvation and had expressed that thought in a paper saying that Muslims did not believe in the God of the Bible. This is a doctrine. Jesus clearly states that He is the only way, the only truth and the only life; no one can come to the Father but through Him. Mr. Vought clearly stated his beliefs. But Mr. Sanders came this conclusion:
"I would simply say, Mr. Chairman, that this nominee is really not someone who is what this country is supposed to be about," Sanders said. "I will vote no."
A man who has Christian beliefs is NOT WHAT THIS COUNTRY IS ABOUT? Now, go back to the quoted piece at the very beginning of this article, and you will see that, in fact, this man, Mr. Vought, was the very epitome of what the USA was about; he was a man who understood the restraint that the Bible brings to men when we obey its doctrines. Then, as Paul tells Timothy, we can do proper reproof, we can do proper correction, and we can produce proper works (proper lifestyle, both individually and as a nation; 2 Timothy 3:16-17).
The Last Days and the Left's Lies (Part 2) - By Sean Gooding - https://www.raptureready.com/2019/10/22/last-days-lefts-lies-part-2-sean-gooding/
"Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; But happy is he who keeps the law."
As we began to look at this set of lessons last week, I began by showing that this verse, Proverbs 29:18, is often misused as a way to 'cast a vision,' speaking of the future. A pastor looking to inspire his people at the first service in the new year may 'cast a vision' for the year, something that he wants the church to work at or accomplish. But this verse has specifically to do with the revelation of God's Word, as the word revelation implies. Specifically, it has to do with the teaching and preaching of God's Word. Last week we also looked at another verse, 2 Timothy 3:16-17,
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."
This is a great verse as we explored, to show us the purpose and the power of the Word of God. Today, even in churches, we have too many who question the accuracy of the Bible; they question that it is complete and ALL we need to be equipped to serve the Lord. The Bible is sufficient to equip the Lord's people and the Lord's churches to do the work here on earth until Jesus returns. Further, there is a serious lack of knowledge of the Word of God. The idea of studying, reading, re-reading and then reading it some more is missing.
One will never get to the end of the Bible and conclude that you have it all. Never! There is always something else that you missed. Notice I did not say something new.
As you read in the Bible, you will discover things that you simply were not mature enough either as a person or as a Christian to receive. I know countless mature pastors, serious students of the Bible, that will point to something they had recently seen for the first time in a passage that they had read countless times and preached from many times. This is what we mean when we say that the Bible is a living entity, it is alive; and as we grow, the Holy Spirit shows us more and more. We have an example of this in John 16:12-13 with Jesus and the apostles,
"I still have much to tell you, but you cannot yet bear to hear it. However, when the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth. For He will not speak on His own, but He will speak what He hears, and He will declare to you what is to come."
There were things that Jesus longed to tell His closest friends and servants, but they could not understand them yet. They had to wait for the Holy Spirit to indwell them, and then they would understand. Even later in life, the apostle Peter wrote this about Paul's writings, 2 Peter 3:15-16,
"Consider also that our Lord's patience brings salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom God gave him. He writes this way in all his letters, speaking in them about such matters. Some parts of his letters are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction.
Peter tells us that some parts of Paul's writings were hard to understand, not impossible. They would take study and research to understand, and maybe a bit more spiritual maturity, or maybe time. We explore Paul's writings and are able to get more than the early NT churches got, since we have the mirror of history to enlighten us. So, what we see is that there needs to be diligent 'revelation' of the Word of God by pastors and preachers, by Sunday School teachers and Seminary Professors, as we are charged in 2 Timothy 2:15,
"Make every effort to present yourself approved to God, an unashamed workman who accurately handles the word of truth."
But the recipients need to be diligent listeners as well. Show up, listen, take notes, re-read the passages, and then obey the things you learn.
Notice that the verse we are considering at the top of this lesson has 2 parts: The need for the revelation of God's word and that people keep the Law. One can find any amount of good, well-laid-out Biblical teaching in many churches, on YouTube if you are careful, in publications like the Daily Bread and others; but if you do not keep or obey what you learn, it is of no value to you.
Last week we looked the first part of the verse in 2 Timothy 3:16, the statement that the Bible, scripture, is profitable for doctrine. These are clearly stated Biblical laws that should govern us, things like the fact that God created us (Genesis 1-2), that Jesus is the ONLY way of Salvation (John 14:1-6), that we will answer to God as the saved (2 Corinthians 5:9-10) and to the Lord (Revelation 20:11-15). We can go on, but the gist is that these are eternal principles that cannot be altered. These are the foundation for us to be restrained. The proper teaching and explanation of these doctrines help us to make good decisions, help society at large, even the lost, to make good decisions about the choices put before them/us.
The verse goes on to say in 2 Timothy that the Bible, God's inspired Word, is also profitable for 'reproof and correction.' Reproof is defined as 'an expression of blame or disapproval.' Correction is defined as 'a change that rectifies an error or an inaccuracy.' Thus, reproof is pointing out sin and wrong; correction is then doing it the right way. Here is an example Ephesians 4:28,
"Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth."
This verse is speaking to those who are thieves in the church at Ephesus or maybe were thieves in the church at Ephesus. He tells them to stop stealing as a means of supplying their daily needs, and go get a job. They are to work with their hands; and through good work, they will get their needs met. In 1 Corinthians 7:9, we see this admonishment with regard to sexual relationships and marriage,
"But if they cannot control themselves, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion."
Paul tells the church there that if some of them are able to be like him and be celibate for the ministry, then they should do so. But if their sexual desires and needs are strong, they should marry. Don't just engage in a sexual relationship outside of marriage; get married. As well we can see in Matthew 5:23-24,
"Therefore if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift."
Here is another reproof and then a correction: you come to offer a gift to God; you recall that you have an issue with a brother. Out of anger, maybe harsh words were said, and you left it that way. We are told to go to the brother and make the situation with him right, and then come and worship God. Reproof and correction. In Ezra 10:2-3, we see this account,
"Then Shecaniah son of Jehiel, an Elamite, said to Ezra: 'We have been unfaithful to our God by marrying foreign women from the people of the land, yet in spite of this, there is hope for Israel. So now let us make a covenant before our God to send away all the foreign wives and their children, according to the counsel of my lord and of those who tremble at the command of our God. Let it be done according to the Law.'"
The captive families who had returned from Babylon had begun to intermarry with the pagan and Gentile women in the cities around Israel. Ezra showed the people that this was wrong; this is reproof. Then they made a covenant to 'send away all the foreign wives.' Here we see reproof and correction. This is a part of what happens when the revelation of God, when the word of God, the Bible is clearly and skillfully taught to the people. It provides them with doctrine, this doctrine reproves wrong living, wrong ideas, wrong opinions, wrong actions and offers a remedy, called corrections.
We live in a time when no one wants to call out evil; no one wants to call out error. People, even God's people, may get offended, and they will call us intolerant. I read this today, and it was a sobering idea; I am not sure who wrote it or said it, but read it for yourself and see:
"Many Christians believe that the highest calling God has placed on us is to be nice. These Christians are wrong. God has not called us to be nice. Rather, he has called us to be good. Here's the difference: Nice people never confront evil; good people do. Nice people are weak; good people are strong. Jesus wasn't nice. He was kind, he was compassionate, he was caring; but He was unbending and unflinching when it came to standing for the truth. And it cost him His life."
Here we see that we must be ready, with the proper and skillful understanding of the Word of God, to be able to bring reproof and offer the path of correction: stop doing that; start doing this. Today, one of my dear friends is out in front of an abortion clinic offering hope to the women, both patients and nurses. He and a team are praying, loving and offering alternatives. They have seen hundreds of babies saved from abortion and many workers stop working in the industry; they have even seen the abortion clinics be closed down.
The lies of the Left are that everyone can just do what feels good to them, and live and let live. Well, in this case, what feels right to a pregnant woman is death to the baby in her and a curse on our society as we anger a Holy God.
The lies of the Left are that there is no right or wrong; we just need to tolerate each other. But there is right and wrong; our Holy Creator put that in all of us.
The lies of the Left are that sexuality is subjective and not confined to the restraints put in the Bible. So, sex before marriage, with others while married, homosexuality - and recently here in Canada, the Supreme Court ruled that sex with an animal was not illegal. Even more disturbing is the subtle yet steady push to lower the age of consent, making sex with minors as young as 10 years old. There are even women pushing this. On May 5, 2018, a woman named Mirjam Heine gave a speech at the University of Würzburg in Germany, where she stated that societies view of paedophilia had to change. She went on to say that paedophilia was an 'unchangeable sexual orientation.' Later, this would be compared to homosexuality as an unchangeable sexual orientation. But these are lies. The Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11,
"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God."
Notice in verse 10 that effeminate men were included and men who abused themselves with other men; these men were changed by the salvation that comes through the grace of God. Yes, we can all be changed in Jesus. Our sinful state does not have to be permanent because of what Jesus did for us on Calvary.
There is right and wrong; the Bible tells us so. There is a place for us as believers to stand rightly, on the properly and skillfully taught Word of God and say no, this or that is wrong, and then to offer Biblical correction to situations in our lives, the lives of our children, the lives of our church family, and ultimately the lives of our nations.
The Encroaching Darkness - By Jill Martin Rische - www.olivetreeviews.org
NOTE FROM JAN: Late October is a time when we always can feel the encroaching darkness. Nobody analyzes that better than Jill Martin Rische, daughter of Dr. Walter Martin. This activity was predicted in the Bible for a last generation. It is just one more sign that things are falling into place.
I, personally, know the danger and destructiveness of a Ouija Board. I thought it was a game. Dozens of kids at my Christian college were playing it. I soon learned it had occult power and I destroyed it before my life would have been destroyed.
What is happening to the world around us? Someone's poured gasoline on the very dry tinder of the human heart and our world is on fire. Evil is good-good is evil, and Satan is alive and well on planet earth.
In the 21st century, we find ourselves dropped in the middle of a spiritual battlefield where military lines are drawn and the invisible war is upon us. From Judge Kavanaugh to President Trump to a coup in the U.S. House of Representatives, the world as we know it has exploded.
As Predicted - Evil Is Waxing Worse and Worse
If ever there was any doubt about this, Halloween 2019 brought a ton of proof in the form of a Ouija board weighing in at a monstrous 9,000 pounds. It is heavier than an elephant, longer than a brontosaurus, and larger than five full-size semi-trucks.
Nicknamed "Ouijazilla," it comes complete with a 400-pound planchet (a pointer) and sits on a huge green space just outside Salem, Massachusetts-headquarters of the Satanic Temple and scene of the infamous Salem witchcraft trials.
The brains behind this actual door to hell is a tattoo artist by the name of Rick "Ormortis" Schreck, vice president of the Talking Board Historical Society-an organization dedicated to contacting spirits from the other side. Schreck aimed for the Ripley's Believe It Or Not world record for giant Ouija Boards, and walked away with the prize.
Largest Occult Tool on Earth
It's hard to conceive of so much visible evil in one place, and yet there it is-in our faces-the largest tool of the occult on planet earth.
This is much more than a publicity stunt, though. It is a concerted effort to promote the evil that God has condemned. "There shall not be found among you anyone who...practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord" (Deuteronomy 18:10-12).
He Knows His Time Is Short
As Christians, we see the enemy ramping up his strategy and breaking free of restraint, and this means there are victories to be won. We are fighters, and it's time to check the armor and scope the battlefield.
As if this were not enough, once again witches gathered from around the world at one minute to midnight on October 25, to curse President Trump.
According to Michael M. Hughes, a witch promoting this spell, they will continue to curse Trump "at midnight on every waning crescent moon until he is removed from office."
Make no mistake - we are the target
In case you may think this is only about attacking Donald Trump-think again: This curse is also aimed at you and everyone you hold dear. It is specifically "crafted to bind Trump and all who aid or abet him."
The pack of occult wolves behind this bizarre attack is known as the #MagicResistance-an alliance of 13,000+ witches worldwide, doing their level best to destroy the President and his supporters. They try to frame this curse as not really being a curse-just a "binding spell" not meant to cause harm.
But a simple review of spell details reveals that the tarot card called "La Torre" or The Tower is a central part of the ritual. It depicts a man falling from a high, crumbling tower and its meaning is dark and dangerous.
"The Death card is usually the card people are terrified of, [but] out of all of the cards in the deck, The Tower is the one you really need to brace yourself for. The Tower Tarot card represents chaos and destruction." So the actions of these witches are clear to all who care to look-they intend danger and destruction; they wish to cause catastrophe in Trump's life and in the lives of millions of men, women, and children across America.
There is no such thing as a good witch
One of the greatest ironies in this world-wide cursing is that Hughes recommends including Psalm 23. This is nothing new-sorcerers in Egypt turned to the power of God 2000 years ago. They used the name of Jesus first in their exorcism rituals, followed by a long list of Egyptian deities.
Even witches and sorcerers know there is power in the name of Jesus, and in the living Word of God-they just don't believe it works against them. But God says it is alive, active and sharper than any two-edged sword. It will not return void.
God is greater
He is far more powerful than any evil these lost souls can summon, and the Bible says an undeserved curse will never come to rest (Proverbs 26:2). In the last days, human hearts burn for revenge. They will do anything to get it.
It feels surreal at times, but Jesus spent a large part of His ministry teaching us how to fight against the prince of this world and against a dimension of reality we cannot see.
Paul warns us to take up the armor of God and be prepared to fight, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places" (Ephesians 6:12).
We should not be surprised by this level of evil or afraid of its power. The Bible tells us that we will judge the angels, and they know it. They are terrified of the great power we have as children of the Most High God.
We are facing the end of this world and Satan will not go quietly. But Jesus is coming back for us and until He returns, we will occupy.
California Wild Fires - A Small Picture of the Coming Day of the LORD! - David Pepe -
Deadly wildfires continue to ravish California and have been dominating the national news cycle for the last week. In light of these horrific fires, we wanted to bring everyone's full attention to the realities of what is to come upon the earth in the not so distant future (Rev. 8). Below is an excerpt from the Daily Mail stating the effects of these fires on the California state.
In ALL sincerity, our thoughts and prayers go out to those in California whose lives have been greatly affected by these horrific fires. Our TRUE desire is that they will see Almighty God's true hand of rescue as He reaches out to rescue fallen humanity from this fallen world and our fallen selves (John 3:16-17, 1 John 4:10). The images of these wildfires when observed on video look apocalyptic and grip our imagination in great awe. It is in such times like these - while these images are fresh in our minds as Americans - that we want to EXPONENTIALLY magnify this event and focus our attention on the very soon coming Day of the Lord (Rev. 6-19)!
The first of the seven Trumpet judgments (which follow the Seal Judgments - Rev. 6) in the Day of the Lord is described in horrific EXPONENTIAL detail
"And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up (Rev. 8:6-7)."
My dear friends, from this Divine first Trumpet Judgment one-third of ALL trees upon the face of the earth will be burnt up!! Dear friend, can you even begin to imagine such a catastrophic event!! Can you even begin to imagine the smoke rising into the earth's atmosphere and its effect on millions upon millions of people from billions of burning trees?!! Oh, my dear friend... it can only be EXPONENTIAL in every facet and yet this is just one of Almighty God's Divine plagues on godless humanity.
We have done the math and it is absolutely mind-blowing! There is an estimated 400 billion trees on planet earth and one-third of all those billions of trees that will burn comes to roughly 133 billion trees! 133 billion trees will be burnt up not to mention the smoke that will come from these burning trees!!! Also... 7% of all landmass is covered with grass. This area covers 9.93 million sq/km or 3.8 million sq/miles. This total area containing grass - which is given over to fire - is roughly a little bit bigger than the total land mass of the United States which would include Alaska. Indeed my dear friends... the earth will be on fire!!
Dear friends this is just one of the many EXPONENTIAL Divine plagues that Almighty God will send on the earth during this time of GREAT wrath upon the wickedness of ungodly men (Rom. 1:18-32, 2 Thess. 2:8-12, Rev. 6-16)!
Indeed all these things will be in the not so distant future and if you know not the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior then you will be left behind in this world.
What is even more mind-blowing then these global raging fires is that the majority of the world's godless unregenerate masses from all nations will STILL continue in their godless and lawless rebellion against Almighty God, His ETERNAL spiritual absolutes and moral absolutes for time (2 Thess. 2:8-12, Rev. 9:20-21). They will not desire to look to Almighty God in a saving way but curse the very One who LOVED the world and gave Himself for its transgressions (Isa. 53, John 3:16-17, 1 John 4:10). Oh, how hard the heart of fallen man can get!!
Dear friend, what about you? Upon hearing this message, will your heart get softer to Almighty God's Divine REALITY and to His saving grace for YOU or will it get hard as Pharaoh's heart did? Will you harden your heart against the ETERNAL LOVE, GRACE, and MERCY of Almighty God? If you cannot look to Him now in the day of peace (as it were) do you think billions will in that Day with EXPONENTIAL plagues abounding (Rev. 6-16)!
Today my dear friend is the day of salvation! Now is the time! For we know not what tomorrow will bring! Dear friends if you know not the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior be sure that you do business with Him today! We have countless resources to help you come to a saving knowledge of the Savior of the world and to grow in the grace and knowledge of Him. Dear friend, may it be so, for you will NEVER EVER be the same!
Indeed! The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
Daily Jot: Using secret tribunals to destroy your freedom - Bill Wilson - www.dailyjot.com
The Democratic Party is behaving like a third world dictatorship by holding a secret tribunal on impeaching a duly elected president and propagandizing the testimonies of witnesses with vague and controlled releases to the news media. This is unheard of in America, where traditionally such things are done in public. and it is amazing that this is allowed to continue in secrecy. Last Wednesday, Republicans led by Minority Whip StevIe Scalise (R-LA) tried to enter the hearing room in the Capitol basement, where House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff set up his secret tribunal. The hearing was delayed for five hours. It should have been delayed permanently or until these hearings are conducted in public.
There is a pattern here that is very dangerous to America's Constitutional Republic-a political party using dictator-like tactics in secret and releasing to the media only damaging information to shape public opinion. Think back to post-election 2016, when the Democratic Party, candidate Hillary Clinton and the now ex-president paid for a false dossier on Donald Trump and then used it to convince the "secret" FISA Court to authorize spying on the Trump campaign and transition team. In November 2016, HeatStreet reported "that the FBI sought, and was granted, a FISA court warrant in October, giving counter-intelligence permission to examine the activities of 'US persons' in Donald Trump's campaign with ties to Russia."
No evidence against Trump was found, but the wire-taps were continued, according to HeatStreet and the New York Times, under the pretext of national security. While the ex "president" himself may or may not have ordered wire taps and surveillance on Trump, even after he was elected, evidence suggests the ex "president's" Administration did spy on Trump and numerous other US citizens during his two terms in office. It is reported, documented and was considered routine. Now Judicial Watch is investigating the State Department for using a George Soros-backed Facebook-owned social media tracking tool to spy on conservative talk show hosts, Trump's son, his attorney and more than a dozen US citizens. The operation was conducted in Ukraine at the behest of the former ambassador appointed by the ex-president.
The deep state is very deep. It can conjure up evidence, control a narrative, and make a case against anyone it wants-including you. The government has overcome the power of the people evidenced by secret tribunals, spying, fabricating cases against those who oppose it. These powers are conducting these things without due process and are daring the public to stop them by their mere illegality. Unfortunately, the Democratic Party has allowed itself to be wrapped around the axel of the deep state. In John 3:20, Jesus said, "For everyone that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed." These deeds must be exposed and accountability demanded, otherwise your freedom of religion and of speech will be crushed in darkness.
Daily Devotion: Empty Pursuits - by Greg Laurie -
But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.-John 4:14
My wife, Cathe, likes Indian food. During some of her childhood she lived in Malaysia, where she ate all kinds of exotic Asian and Indian food.
I, on the other hand, don't really like Indian food. I grew up in Southern California, where I ate hamburgers and French fries. I also ate TV dinners. I don't know whether you could actually call TV dinners from the 1950s and 1960s food, but that is what I ate.
So when I go to an Indian restaurant with Cathe every now and then, I'll order some rice, bread, and something with chicken. And all I know is that afterward I'm still hungry and want something to fill my stomach. It just doesn't leave me satisfied.
In the same way, we can chase after all the things the world says will satisfy us. But in reality, it will leave us empty. And we can learn this the hard way or the easier way.
Let me appeal for a moment to those who are still young: Don't find this out the hard way. I know people who have wasted decades of their lives figuring this out the hard way. Figure it out at an early age. You don't have to waste years of your life.
Those of us who are older know a few things because we've lived life. And I can tell you this: you can miss a lot of misery. At the ripe old age of seventeen, I started on a course that I'm still on today. And I've never regretted being on this path of following Christ. Not once.
Chasing after other things won't satisfy you, but Christ will. He is the Bread of Life that will satisfy your spiritual hunger. He is the Living Water that will satisfy your spiritual thirst.

"Share in the Blessings and Rewards that will last Forever!"
"Folks, it's all beginning to unravel. America is in more danger of falling than at any time in its history. But I believe Bible prophecy predicts this very decline. From this point on, we believers have to get serious. We are going to face discouragement, disillusionment and, most certainly, persecution in the time between now and the Rapture. But don't be discouraged or disillusioned. The coming turmoil will provide us unrivaled opportunities to share the good news of the Gospel. So be ready to share your faith and your hope with those who need Christ. We still have time to reap a great harvest of souls for God's kingdom!" - Hal Lindsey
