TRUTH,       WORTH CONSIDERING,    3/3/21     By Ken Smith <><

An ardent family member was bombing away at me for how many lies that were told by Trump and voted for Biden.   I had a choice to try to defend or just to be quiet.  I decided to just be quiet.  It was not a matter of, in politics, who told the most lies but the direction of the Country.  Actually we had two choices in Nov.   To vote for a Constitutional Republic with all of it’s flaws or to change direction and head into Socialism with all of it’s flaws.   The history of the past, of course, concedes victory to our Constitutional Republic as having more individual freedom than any other nation on planet earth.  But we now find ourselves losing that freedom guaranteed by our Constitution as a God given right.   Our youth are believing in the unsupported promises of socialism and today we are headed unhindered into uncharted socialist waters for the U.S.  Just a bit more trillion dollar borrowing on the backs of our grandchildren and this nation will be bankrupt and up for auction.   Dollars will be as worthless as were the German Marks in 1927.   

As for us Christians, real Christians, it would be easier for us under the lawful eye of our Constitution but the Church will become much cleaner with the persecution that is now headed in our direction.   TRUTH IS, Romans 13, we will have the government that we deserve as allowed by God.   As Christians we have not protected our freedom of speech nor religion and our Bible is now on the way to being classified as a bad hate book, like in China, North Korea, Cuba and many other Socialist countries.

So the answer is in Gen. 11:1-6 and John 17:20-22,   And the whole earth was of one language and of one accent and mode of expression.  2 And as they journeyed eastward, they found a plain (valley) in the land of Shinar, and they settled and dwelt there.  3 And they said one to another, Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly. So they had brick for stone, and slime (bitumen) for mortar.  4 And they said, Come, let us build us a city and a tower whose top reaches into the sky, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered over the whole earth.  5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built.   6 And the Lord said, Behold, they are one people and they have [a] all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do, and now nothing they have imagined they can do will be impossible for them.    (Look at all of the groups that have united on the socialist side?)   And we Christians are so full of pride that we can not even find unity in our own homes.  Much less our so called churches/social clubs and theaters.

Ever notice the verse in the wonderful LORD’S PRAYER of John 17, the verses 20-22?  It is the part where Jesus prays for you and me.   “ Neither for these alone do I pray [it is not for their sake only that I make this request], but also for all those who will ever come to believe in (trust in, cling to, rely on) Me through their word and teaching,21 That they all may be one, [just] as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe and be convinced that You have sent Me.  22 I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one [even] as We are one:   (Notice: MAY BE ONE, it is our choice.)  But no UNITY, no POWER (GLORY)   In Eph. 4:11-16 Apostle Paul teaches the same thing: “And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers.  12 His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ’s body (the church),  13 [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [[a] full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ’s own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him.  14 So then, we may no longer be children, tossed [like ships] to and fro between chance gusts of teaching and wavering with every changing wind of doctrine, [the prey of] the cunning and cleverness of [b] unscrupulous men, [gamblers engaged] in every shifting form of trickery in inventing errors to mislead.  15 Rather, let our lives lovingly [c] express truth [in all things, speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly]. Enfolded in love, let us grow up in every way and in all things into Him Who is the Head, [even] Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).  16 For because of Him the whole body (the church, in all its various parts), closely joined and firmly knit together by the joints and ligaments with which it is supplied, when each part [with power adapted to its need] is working properly [in all its functions], grows to full maturity, building itself up in love.

Yours, in HIS great Love and wonderful Grace and Mercy, Ken<><

I would like them to focus instead on the real threat this country faces, which is the homosexual, transsexual, anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-reason, pro-Chinese Communist, anti-free speech, gangster government, “cancel culture” agenda of the Left.   Pete H.

YES!!!  And they are all coming into unity like to Tower of Babel Gen. 11:6   And if the Christians do not get into UNITY the U.S.A. Could become ROME all over and have fun feeding Christians to the Lions.  Good to hear from you,    Be Blessed in your day,   Ken<><  (Course on the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.

Worthy Brief <;      John 7:37-38 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believes on me, as the scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.   Iran on Sunday ruled out holding an informal meeting with the United States and European powers to discuss ways to salvage the unraveling 2015 nuclear deal with major powers, insisting that Washington must first lift all its unilateral sanctions.    Top Israeli defense and political leaders are scheduled to meet on February 28 to discuss a response to what Israel’s defense minister says was likely an attack by Iran against an Israeli-owned cargo vessel in the Gulf of Oman.    The House approved a $1.9 trillion pandemic relief bill early Saturday in a win for President Joe Biden, even as top Democrats tried assuring agitated progressives that they’d revive their derailed drive to boost the minimum wage.   Less than 10% went towards pandemic?

There is but ONE Church of Christ Jesus and all who Love, Honor and Obey HIM are members.
