  1. 2018 Japanese Disasters and a Worldwide Stock Market Crash

    WOW! Real Life with Jack Hibbs, Calvary, Chino Hills, and JD and Amir Tsafari, I subscribe to them on Youtube and watch them all the time. Seems we have friends in the same circle
  2. 2018 Japanese Disasters and a Worldwide Stock Market Crash

    I've just recently become aware of David Wilkerson myself. Through a couple of programs and ministries I trust; David R. Reagan (Lamb & Lion Ministries) and Jan Markell (Olive Tree Ministries). In fact, many of the programs I watch and listen to has mentioned him, yet to date I know very little about him.
  3. Very interesting topic I'm gleaning a little information on bit by bit. Back in Jesus' day you had various religious sects; the Pharisees, Sadducee's, Sanhedrin, Essene's, etc. The Essene's seemed to have suddenly disappeared completely during Christ's presence on Earth. I've been listening to some postulation that makes some sense. Whether true or not, I'm hearing the Essene's converted to Christianity and that's what happened and why they suddenly disappeared? It was even stated that it was possible that John the Baptist was an Essene? I have much literature on the Dead Sea Scroll's I've yet to read, but based on everything I think I know, it makes sense the scrolls were placed there for safe keeping. Probably because of the Jewish rebellions and Rome's impending destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70 I would guess. I'm still wondering why it took decades for the transcribers, preservers to release any information on the scrolls?
  4. True gospel preach into the world.

    By no means am I making a comparison here, but... I think it safe to say, Billy Graham preached the Gospel to more people than all the Apostle's, combined.
  5. CSPAN comment this morning

    CSPAN and CPAC are close enough for me to make another observation. Used car salesmen and pawn shop owners, what do they both have in common? What honor ability or credibility does one Rick Harrison (of Pawn Star fame) bring to the table in politics? Who's next in line?
  6. CSPAN comment this morning

    Just a personal observation and view of indoctrination and the mindset of liberalism I've personally gathered and believe. Liberalism is all about me, me, me, and a collective Utopian hive void of any self initiative to get ahead by risk and hard work. They believe that what you earned, saved and have is to be shared equally between society. It's more than obvious, career politicians and ranking government employees are not there as 'public servant's, but for power, prestige, all leading to eventual wealth and influence for personal objectives and agenda's. Generally speaking and with few exceptions in my observations, liberals (blue's) are takers and not givers. All polls show Democrat's and liberals give much less percentage wise of their incomes to charity (not political causes) than the general population, conservatives, Christians and independents. It's my contention the vast majority of liberal's are cowards with yellow dripping off their backs. They won't personally intervene in anything with risk to self, they hire body guards and protection and pass laws to forbid you to protect yourself. Look at just one of those liberals, Nancy Pelosi, you just don't know what stupid nonsense will come out of her mouth next. She still thinks George W. Bush is still president! That's representative with government in general, they're blinded. One last statement: As I previously stated, politicians are not in Washington to serve their constituents. That the overwhelming majority of Democrat's / liberals are takers and not givers. Look at the percentage of the swamp in Washington, D.C. (Congress) that are not military veterans and / or patriots. I'll refrain from talking about John Kerry and John McCain and their service. Liberalism is a disease. The disease is satanic and fleshly in nature. The cure is in God through Jesus Christ and prayer for our nation.

  9. Handguns in UK

    Hi Ya Davida! Hey I'm not defending this guy by any means, he should have acted immediately and done "something'. But consider this, he may have been properly trained, but was he ever tested? I'll use myself as an example. I was adequately trained in the Army as an assault helicopter M-60 machine gunner and mechanic, on my way to Viet Nam. Many, many times I wondered to myself how I would react the first time I got shot at, it was troublesome and a scary thought to me. Would I do my job and accurately fire back at the enemy, would I freeze, would I soil myself??? It didn't take long after I entered the country to answer my troubling question. Flying left seat in a UH-1C Huey assault helicopter with machine gun in hand. We were taking .50 cal machine gun fire, with green tracers the size of footballs coming toward me and zeroing in. Fortunately I did my job, with a touch of the pucker factor, and suppressed the incoming fire. My point is; unless you've been tested and/or are mentally prepared to put yourself in harms way, you may freeze or cower. I've seen a number of cases like that, and hopefully the academy or boot camp can weed out those prone to not doing there job when it's needed most. If the above description is indeed fact, I would say the police academy may be at fault for not weeding him out. Or he thought it might be best to wait for backup, since a handgun is no match for an AR-15.

  11. Billy Graham’s flawed message

    We in the flesh all struggle with demons and Satan attacking us. I would think Satan attacks the hardest on those Pastors and preachers most effective in winning souls to Christ. As of '1966' Billy Graham had preached to an estimated 50,000,000 people. How many can't be known, but I would think an untold number came to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior hearing and believing his preaching the word of God. We don't know the Reverend Graham's personal relationship with the Lord or the reasons of his changed doctrine. We do know this though... Mt 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Mt 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Mt 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. I'm by no means making a comparison, but look at the Apostle Paul's thorn in the flesh and how he was buffeted by Satan.
  12. Billy Graham’s flawed message

    All great men of God have stumbled and struggled. It's not my place to guess anyone's Salvation. Pertaining to the Reverend Graham, a couple of Bible versus come to mind. Mt 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Mr 9:38 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us. Mr 9:39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me. Mr 9:40 For he that is not against us is on our part. One quip I really like that came from Billy's wife Ruth, to paraphrase: If God doesn't judge America soon, He owes an apology to Sodom and Gomorrah. I think few would dispute he lead an untold number of the lost to the saving faith in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Based on scripture I think you're right. Tradition holds that Pilate's wife was a secret believer in Christ.

    Technically you're correct, I didn't even think about that. You got me!
  15. Resource officer report

    Do we judge and make conclusions before we have all the facts and sequence of events? I've certainly been guilty of that. I'm going to play the evil advocate and I'm not defending this guy, and I don't know all the details. However, as law enforcement, most departments I've heard about have a policy of waiting for backup at shootings and not acting alone. In addition he was severely outgunned and out supplied. You don't take a handgun to an AR fight by yourself according to all policies I've heard about. With that said let's turn the tables around. There was no security officer around, you there waiting for your son to come out for a dental appointment. You have a handgun in your vehicle hidden but not on you because it's against the law to have a handgun on school property. You witness the beginnings of this soon to be massacre just as your son gets into the car. After you call the cops on your cell phone, what are you going to do? #1. Knowing it's against the law to even have your handgun with you. #2. Knowing your responsible for where every round lands. #3. Knowing maybe that you may face criminal charges, and certainly will face civil suits from parents, ACLU, liberals and probably the school district. #4. Knowing you will be hounded and persecuted by the media, not a hero. Make one mistake and the media zero's in on that and digs up every piece of dirt since you've been born. #5. Knowing most likely it's going to bankrupt you defending yourself with lawyers, witness expects, etc. And you're going to lose your reputation, home, everything you own and your employment. What are you going to do? What should Peterson have done? P.S. You don't see these cowards walking into an NRA convention or 'shot show' doing this. No, the deliberately pick defenseless soft targets like schools and churches. The first time a good guy with a gun shoots at them they will soil themselves and run like the cowards they are. RANT OFF
