Justice Antonin Scalia Dead……Murdered or act of God?

Follow the process for God’s sake

Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead Saturday, “in peaceful repose”, what ever that means. We will miss Justice Scalia. He was the voice of reason in an increasingly unconstitutional society. He fought hard, at risk, to keep the court in a verbose reading, as opposed to some living evolving document. He brought sanity to the SCOTUS in an increasingly relevant based time. He knew, like the founding fathers, the importance of the separate three branches as laid out at the founding. As they, he knew the inherent danger of “interpreting in modern setting” the “thoughts” of the founders and he obstinately fought to preserve the intention of the Constitution. He will be missed.

And what of the timing of this untimely death. Continue reading

One Nation God , America Declares New Independence


A couple of days ago something happened to me that would have been one of those, “okay, that hurt” episodes out in the field. While clearing out in the woods a major thorny vine got a hold of me in the ear. dan bloodInstead of being a little prick it kept bleeding forcing me to come in. Nurse Sue was home so she tended me and it was a little prick, not worthy of all the show all over me. While she fussed and fumed all over me that there was so much blood for such a little thing I just sat there and smiled. Eighteen years earlier she chased me around with a Tetanus shot the night before we got married so that I wouldn’t get lock-jaw on our wedding day because I’d cut my finger (maybe now she’s thinking that’s one way to get me to be quiet). Well, there’s no chasing around with a shot this time. While sitting there I hadn’t, yet, caught a view of what I looked like. When I did get a view and saw all the blood I said to Sue jokingly, ” Wow, I wonder if that’s prophetic? Well, at least I get shot in the head.” Continue reading

Do Unto Others as They Have Done unto You.

I had to twist that a little bit because, though I believe the other way, sometimes the shoe fits. As in this case, sometimes offense is the better defense. Recently, the Duggar family, who has a reality show (sic) about their plethora of kids, has been hauled into a public display, beat down, punishment simply because the family matriarch has taken a strong public stand against forcibly allowing men ( with a Y chromosome ) free access into women’s lounges, restrooms, showers etc simply because the “felt” like a woman that day. They also removed a picture of homosexuals kissing posted to their personal Facebook page, oh the horror ( they also would have removed pic of a guy and a gal kissing wearing nothing but a G string ).

Get On Your Knees and Fight Like a Man!


http://cccmurphysboro.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/praying-israelite.jpgIt’s obvious, I love music. I live and breath music and the more that I can offer up in God’s service the sweeter it is and the more connected I feel. But today’s music has been getting soft, nice, unoffending. Don’t get me wrong, I like the music, but in a lot of cases there is no strength to it, no relational connection to Christ, kind of like music you could safely hear on secular radio, or love songs you could sing to your sweetheart. Much of the music has lost the edge, the edge of the sword.

Is this what’s happening, Continue reading

Here We Go, King Obama Has Done Spoke!


obama pointing finger

Now you listen to ME!

Well, there ya have it. We’ve warned, cajoled, shouted front the house tops and now, out the mouth of the king himself, comes the declaration that the US Constitution is meaningless. Whether Congress goes with him or not he’s going forth with his own agenda and purpose. We presented to you Obama as king in, “Obama, Messiah, King of the Lose” and what the Bible told us about another nation that wanted to turn from the sovereignty of God to a earthly king, “like all the other nations…”  Continue reading

Welcome to the church of ungod


Well it’s coming, and come. The church of ungod. un-crossYesterday was an advent, a coming out party for the atheists who actually coveted what, at minimum, the pseudo christians had, and created their own church. I’d mentioned years ago, when I lived in the shadow of the FFR (freedom from religion) headquarters, that atheism is just a religion without God. They had their annual meetings with songs and preaching and someone there actually said, “it seems like church”. Continue reading

Don’t Be Troubled


In response to Glynda’s message “Nothing To Fear“.

“”Good morning Glynda,

Yes, it has seemed a little worrisome in the silence. It hasn’t been just you, but for many of us. And your confirming Word is that He HAS been working all along, just as He promised us, through Word last year.

In looking behind (I know, we shouldn’t look back) we can see He has been carrying us, no harm has befallen us, some of us have been put into a forced(?) “be still and know I am Lord” period.

For some it is a disconcerting period, not hearing Words of judgement and calamity, but, God fulfilled His Word and put into action in November, that which was warned. There is no need to HEAR a Word right now, look around and see the evil unleashed as God withdraws His hand of protection.

“Be still”, until God specifically calls you into action, and enjoy His presence by your side. Let not your hearts be troubled, He is here. Continue reading
