The Power of Faith
“Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of His goodness, and the work of faith with power.”
1-9-19, Henry M. Morris, III -- When God grants the gift of faith to enable us at the point of salvation (Ephesians 2:8), it isn’t a static power that merely resides in our minds, but is rather an empowerment that is expected to grow into a dynamic and demonstrable “divine nature” (2 Peter 1:4).
Faith preserves and protects us: Jesus insists, “He that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life” (John 5:24). These words are precise. Once faith is exercised, an eternal transaction takes place wherein a person is passed from spiritual death to eternal life. This is an absolute change and eliminates the possibility of hell (John 10:28-29).
Faith is power for effective prayer: The “mustard seed” promise in Matthew 17:20 does not refer to size or amount - but to quality. The Greek comparative hoce translated “as” in that passage refers to the same kind of faith as the mustard seed. Just so, the promise of Matthew 7:7 (if you ask and seek, you will find) depends on our confidence (faith) in the Lord God.
Faith is the shield against the Enemy: God’s armor in Ephesians 6:10-18 lists “the shield of faith” that provides an ability “to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.” That shield is defensive in the sense that it only provides protection when we use it to block the darts. The active use comes when we “resist the devil” (James 4:7) as we remain “steadfast in the faith” (1 Peter 5:9). Source
Muslim Terrorists in Gaza, Israel Continue to Bombard the Jewish State of Israel without Loss of Foreign Humanitarian Aid – Except for America
Israel must must close its collective ears to the world’s assorted hypocritical attacks; many of whom would have leveled Gaza years ago. It’s obvious that the Jew hating world will always find Israel at fault. She is a nation requiring a magnifying glass to locate on a world globe and therefore needs to be forceful in its response to those who wish it dead and who constantly act to accomplish that goal. *Excerpted and adapted full original report here
The New York Times Incentivizes Hamas Violence
1-4-19, Gatestone -- While Hamas is happy to boast openly about its fighters tearing at the border fences in Gaza and hiding behind civilians to evade Israeli soldiers—the New York Times makes no mention of this. Israeli soldiers are portrayed as faceless killing machines, without a single reference to the flying of incendiary fire kites, terror tunnels, rockets or cross border explosive devices utilized by the terrorists aka Palestinians.
- Israeli civilians are not occupiers or usurpers; the Jewish people have lived in Israel proper not in occupied or disputed territory. This area was built from scratch by Israelis on barren desert land and the Israelis have a right to be protected.
- The Times's absurd conclusion that Israeli shooters may have committed a "war crimes," ignores the law of war crimes.
Dec 19, 2018 - GAZA, ISRAEL - The USA cut $200 million in aid to the Muslims in Gaza and Judea & Samaria [aka the West Bank]. Officials said humanitarian programs for Palestinians are seeking more money than requested -- last year they sought $539 million. Since the USA cut funding to the terrorists in Gaza international contributions continue or increase:
- Germany will increase it's 81 million euros [$94 million] in aid for UNWRA this year and will increase its contribution.
- France from 2014 to 2016 provided €500,000 via the Social Fund for Development (FSD) to Palestinian and Israeli NGOs
- UK in Sept 2018 said it would be giving an additional $9 million
California #1 Utility May Be Bankrupt - Again
CEO Ms Geisha Williams Resigns
1-14-19, The huge #1 California utility company, PG&e said the bankruptcy process will not affect electric or natural gas services as its shares plunged 55 percent on Monday, 1-14-19 to $8.92, giving it a market capitalization of less than $5 billion.
On November 8, 2018 shares of PG&E Corp. (NYSE: PCG) closed near $49. A week later at just over $17. What happened in between may lead the largest gas and electric utility in northern California to file for bankruptcy protection - wildfires. In 2001 the company filed for bankruptcy following a run-up in wholesale electricity prices that were later linked to Enron’s manipulation of the California power market. Former governor Gray Davis used state funds to bail out PG&E; will it happen again? New governor, Gavin Newsom is unlikely to want to follow in Davis’s footsteps and may be willing to let PG&E go through with a debtor-in-possession plan.
1-14-19, PG&E remains committed - restoration and rebuilding efforts will continue.
On Jan 13, 2019 PG&E's CEO, Geisha Williams, stepped down before news emerged that the company may declare bankruptcy over the November 2018 "Camp Fire" and other California wildfires that devastated the state and for which PG&E may be held liable.
If the bankruptcy occurs, who will eventually pay? PG&E shareholders or PG&E customers? How California answers that question this time around is the big question.

Israelis would be free to live anywhere west of the Jordan River. Variations of this “Jordan option” have received increasing attention across the region in recent years.

The Discovery of Unicorns and Their Biblical Importance
"But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.”
3-31-16, * --Recently, an interesting fossil animal skull was discovered. What makes it so special? It was the skull of a unicorn. I’m not kidding. Siberian unicorns are an extinct mammal species that looked more like a rhinoceros instead of a horse. However, their horn wasn't on their snout like a rhino, but instead, was on their forehead. This discovery of a skull in Kazakhstan is notable because it is carbon dated to exist much more recently than previously thought.
We actually shouldn’t be surprised that unicorns once roamed the earth. They are mentioned eight times in the King James Holy Bible. These creatures are referred to in modern translations as “wild ox.”
People have a problem with the Bible’s unicorns because we cannot think of a similar modern animal. However, a single-horned feature is found in both the rhinoceros and the narwhal.
In the passage in Job, their mention was to help Job to see God’s greatness. And using an imaginary animal would have defeated that purpose. More in Psalm 22:21, 29:6, 92:10; Isaiah 34:7, Numbers 23:22, 24; Deuteronomy 33:17
There is even archaeological evidence in rock drawings of large, one-horned, equine-like animals. A report on these drawings details an animal with a “single horn, directly in front, about as long as one’s arm…it was not attached to the bone of the forehead, but fixed only in the skin.”
Indeed, this extinct giant one-horned animal supports the truths of the Bible as both God’s inspired Word and a true historical document. Yes, unicorns were real.
There's a lot of confusion...
King Solomon Richest Man in World Had No Happiness
King Solomon said, “I was great, and increased more than all that were before me in Jerusalem: also my wisdom remained with me. Whatsoever mine eyes desired I kept not from them, I withheld not my heart from any joy; for my heart rejoiced in all my labour: and this was my portion of all my labour. Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit.”
1-11-19, King Solomon was convinced he knew how to find happiness and because he had vast resources at his command, he was able to pursue and gain it. Yet after gaining everything he had every wanted, he reluctantly concluded that his life was still empty and without meaning. His search for lasting happiness had failed and his soul was still vexed and without happiness. Deuteronomy 28:20
Are you in danger of making the same mistake King Solomon – the richest man in the known world made? Are you convinced that the things of this world will bring you happiness and peace? Are you pursuing them with all your might?
Don’t be deceived; they never will. [Ecclesiastes 4:6] Why? We are all created to know God and obey Him so until we fully turn to and trust God we'll never have true joy and peace.
Psalm 37:4, 144:15; Proverbs 16:20; Ecclesiastes 6:9; Micah 6:8; John 3:16, 15:9-11; Hebrews 13:5; Philippians 4:19; James 5:1
Dept Of Defense Reveals The Pentagon Caused $27.7 Billion to ‘Expire’ As Trump Seeks $5.7 Billion In Border Wall Funding
Legal analysts say Trump would have the authority to leverage unused DOD funds to construct a wall in the event he declares a national emergency. A border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border could cost up to $21.6 billion, the Dept of Homeland Security reported in 2017.
Harvard law professor Mark Tushnet told NBC News, “My instinct is to say that if he declares a national emergency and uses this pot of unappropriated money for the wall, he’s on very solid legal ground.” -- *Excerpted and adapted full original report here

Thorner: Foolish Lawmakers Efforts to Eiminate Electoral College
Currently there is a National Popular Vote (NPV)  scheme endorsed by many that is a destructive scheme seeking to evade the 12th Amendment to the US Constitution. It’s goal is to elect the President where only the inhabitants of major metropolitan areas would unfairly end up electing the President. [..snip]
In California, supposedly Mrs Clinton received 4.3 million more votes than Donald Trump, but how many of these votes were cast by illegal aliens? We'll never know; reportedly Mrs Clinton received 8,753,788 votes in California. [See map: nearly all what’s called the ‘fly over’ states would be excluded from the fair process of all Americans choosing the nation’s leader if only majority vote counted.]
The amendment in the US House of Representatives is unlikely to pass since it would require a two-thirds vote in both chambers of Congress and then must be ratified by three-fourths of the states.
 Electoral College: Amendment #12 of the U.S. Constitution - the Electoral College is the formal body which elects the President and Vice President of the United States. Ratified in 1804 in Presidential elections to assure all states would be represented fairly; those with high population would not rule the nation. More here

End Time Admonitions of Jesus' Half Brother James
“Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. Look! The wages you failed to pay the workers who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter. You have condemned and murdered the innocent one, who was not opposing you.”
1-6-19, In the Holy Bible’s New Testament there is the book of ‘JAMES’ … who was he? He was not the apostle James; the son of Zebedee, for that James was martyred quite early - the events and circumstances described by this James suggest a much later date.* He was the half brother of the Lord Jesus Christ. **
Brother James gives numerous admonitions for our good & acceptable behaviors before the Lord:
- Avoid selfish desires ruling our hearts, James 1:13-15, 3:14-16, 4:1-4
- Watch our tongues and language, James 3:2-3, 4-5, 6-12
- Born again believers should do good works that back up our faith, James 1:22, 2:14, 3:13, 17
- Keep from deep involvement in the wicked material world, James 1:9-11, 2:1-4, 5:1-2, 3-6
- Be of a humble nature - not haughty and arrogant, James 4:6, 10, 13-15
- Seek wisdom asking God’s help praying for one another, James 1:5-7, 5:13-18
- We must exercise patience & endurance in trials, James 1:2, 5:7, 8
- Appreciate and honor almighty God; be doers of God’s Word, James 1:17, 4:8, 12, 5:11
May we all practice what James preached.
