Syria says Israeli helicopters strike targets in Southern Syria
5-1-20, Devdiscourse.com -- Today, May 1, 2020 in Israel, Syrian state media reported that Israeli helicopters fired several rockets from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on targets inside southern Syria in what Western intelligence sources have described as an increase in strikes against Iranian-backed militias this year. According to state media bases and convoys run by Lebanon's Iranian-backed Islamic terror group Hezbollah, the attacks caused only material damage. [..] Israel says Iran's military presence in Syria, where its militias are fighting alongside Syrian President Bashar al Assad's forces, is a strategic threat and claims that Tehran seeks a permanent presence along its northern borders.
2-28-20, Haaretz -- Syria's official news agency SANA reported that recently Israeli struck Syrian military positions in the Quneitra province in the Golan Heights wounding three Syrian soldiers. There was no immediate comment from Israel.
However, in a rare acknowledgment of operations in neighboring Syria, Israel said that its warplanes struck Islamic Jihad targets south of Damascus, in addition to sites in the Gaza Strip. The strike came after Islamic Jihad fired a barrage of more than 20 rockets into southern Israel in response to the death of one of its operatives, who was shot by Israeli forces after they said he was laying an explosive charge near the Gaza border fence.
Early in February 2020 SANA reported that Syrian air defense systems were activated following a strike near the Damascus Airport that came from the Golan Heights. The Al-Hadath news channel reported that seven militants were killed in the attack targeting Iranian-backed militias.
Syrian state TV reported that an Israeli drone fired a missile at a car in southern Syria, killing one person whom it named as a "civilian." Several other media outlets aligned with Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime said that the man was a local policeman. Local media reports have identified the man as Imad Tawil, a senior Islamic terror group - Hezbollah - official aiding Iran's efforts to secure a foothold on the Golan Heights.

Coronavirus lockdown has led to increase in suicides
4-6-20, Police chiefs say as fears grow of economic doom caused by the Covid virus lockdown, domestic violence and sex abuse have increased with the fear of sickness ...
Coronavirus-Related Suicides Increased
3-31-20, Along with the deaths happening across the world caused by the Covid virus; the economic struggles due to businesses closing indefinitely and major events being pushed back or canceled altogether have caused increased suicide reports to surface around the globe including the USA.
"It's Time to Take Shelter"
"A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished. v7 The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
4-29-20, The world is experiencing a never before event; a virus that may destroy the world’s economy as nation’s leaders – because of fear of the Covid illness – have ordered their populations to ‘shelter in place’ and stay home from work. Businesses have closed many bankruptcies in process and suicides are on the increase. Many people are defying the order and are being arrested while criminals – for their safety - are being released from jail.
God’s Word tells of a time such as this saying 'when you see certain things,[Matthew 24:33] to “take shelter!” [Isaiah 26:20] Many now blaspheme almighty God having no respect for Him or His creation. Babies are legally being killed at birth – same sex people are legally married; depravity of all kinds seem to be acceptable behavior. [Isaiah 5:20]
We now see a fulfillment of Matthew 24:12 when the love of pleasure (self gratification) is greater than love for God. Modern day America and the days of Lot and Noah have many similarities that are hard to ignore. [Luke 17:28]
We are approaching a time of God’s undeniable wrath being poured out the earth and it's in perfect accord with His justice. The Apostle Paul writes, “Because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed.” Romans 2:5
God’s wrath is in proportion to human sinfulness: “If you say, ‘Behold, we did not know this,’ does not He who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not He who keeps watch over your soul know it and will He not repay man according to his work? Proverbs 24:12; 2 Thessalonians 2:12
God is a God of love; but He is also righteous - His wrath is to be feared because:
- we have all sinned and fallen short of God's glory (Romans 3:23)
- apart from being born again in Christ, [John 3:3, 7] we are justly condemned sinners who will be punished (Matthew 25:46; Romans 5:1)
- He is powerful enough to do what He promises (Jeremiah 32:17)
His mercy and love are so great that almighty God has repeatedly warned all who will listen. Only possible 'shelter' is in the Messiah Jesus Christ. [John 14:6] www.openbible.info/topics/how_to_be_saved

Worst GMO Foods for Your Good Health
7-28-12, NaturalSociety.com -- Top 10 Worst Foods. #1 Corn, Soy, Sugar, Aspartame, Papayas, Canola, Dairy, Zucchini & Yellow Squash. Genetically modified foods (GMO foods) have been shown to cause harm to humans, animals, and the environment, and despite growing opposition, more and more foods continue to be genetically altered. It’s important to note that steering clear of these foods completely may be difficult, and you should merely try to find other sources than your big chain grocer. If produce is certified USDA-organic, it’s non-GMO (or supposed to be!) Also, seek out local farmers and booths at farmer’s markets where you can be ensured that the crops aren’t GMO. Even better, if you are so inclined: Start organic gardening and grow them yourself.
Everything you need to know about GMO labeling in 2020
1-8-19, In 2017 the US government passed a national Genetically Modified Foods (GMO) labeling law to have one uniform standard for labeling GMOs, also referred to as BE (bioengineered). Smaller food manufacturers with limited resources may also choose to label their GM foods using a telephone number that can provide additional information or an internet URL.

Joe Biden Obviously Has Dementia and Should Withdraw
3-9-20, Democrats ought to be ashamed of themselves. They spent the last four years criticizing Pres Trump in no small part for his mental state including an impeachment provision in the Constitution in large part as a contingency to remove a sitting president over his mental health - but now you choose Joe Biden as your presidential candidate who obviously has some problems thinking and speaking at the same time..
Why Did Jill Biden Give a Campaign Speech While Joe stood by frowning?
4-27-20, 100percentfedup.com -- The Hill tweeted an incredible video of Jill Biden standing next to her husband Joe,-->
<-- as Mrs Biden ran through a list of why her husband is the most qualified man in America to become the world’s most powerful leader. She said:
“This moment reminds us that the presidency is about true leadership — having the forethought to prepare for the worst, the backbone to lead through chaos, the character to move beyond politics.”
While Mrs Biden gave her little speech the Democrat’s presidential candidate, Joe Biden, stood next to her motionless, but frowning. Then, almost like he was waiting for a cue, Joe seemed to wake up and smiled at his lovely wife. See video here: pic.twitter.com/lhwvRiaXHT
4-28-20, DailyIowan -- According to David Brown from USA Today, “UFCW, a food and retail union that represents over 900,000 grocery workers, surveyed 5,000 of its clients, and 85% said customers are not practicing social distancing. At least 30 supermarket employees have died as a result of COVID-19, the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) said in a release on Monday. Another 3,000 have called out of work after showing signs of illness or other possible coronavirus-related complications.” Because of the lack of social distancing, many workers have gotten sick and even died from the virus. To help stop the spread and protect workers, grocery stores should transition into online shopping only where customers can only pick up or have their items delivered.
If, in the Old Testament Almighty God was so insistent of the preciseness of the materials and process of erecting the movable Holy Place, the Priests garments, artifacts and the way to slaughter the sacrificial animals, and He was - why do we think He's so liberal today?
Jesus said, "The first of all the commandments is, the Lord our God is one Lord: and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, with all thy soul, with all thy mind and with all thy strength. v19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you..."
4-28-20, In the Old Testament we learn of the detail given by God to Moses for the erection of the movable “Tabernacle” and Most Holy Place where God’s ‘Ark of the Covenant’ was housed. These scriptures clearly display the importance of God's focus on details. There are many chapters devoted to the materials, proportions, decorations, colors of the priests’ garments, who can approach God in the Most Holy Place and the specific manner of dissecting and offering the animal sacrifices.
Once annually sin was temporarily removed by the sacrifice of certain objects; God specified the blood of the certain sacrifices, a bull and a goat, covering both the sins of the priest, his family and all the people. As an illustration of the monumental detail God gives in His instruction for the tent ‘Tabernacle’ and priests garments a very short excerpt of what He told Moses:
After Moses was given the Ten Commandments, God gave him extremely detailed instruction [Exodus 25:1 to Exodus 31:11] for the construction and assembly of:
Then the Lord Jesus came as the ‘Lamb of God’ to permanently cleanse and remove the sins of the world for all who will repent and come to Him for salvation. Jesus said we must be born again. [Luke 13:3; John 3:3, 7]
Seeing the specificity of God’s tabernacle building and sacrifice detailed commands in the Old Testament; how is it that today many people behave as if the Lord God almighty has lowered His royal requirements and expectations for our precise obedience to His commands?
Sad that many now believe they just say a simple prayer asking God to forgive them and then continue to live as before; with no more thought about blasphemy and obedience. They believe God ignores their disobedience as 'once saved always saved.' Seems illogical that a person would repeatedly & deliberately without remorse keep sinning after believing Jesus died for them telling them to obey. Were they ever truly saved?
The fact is that God is the same as yesterday, today and forever. [Hebrews 13:8] Jesus said, ‘If you love Me obey My commands’ and the most important command: The first of all the commandments is, the Lord our God is one Lord: and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, with all thy soul, with all thy mind and with all thy strength." [John 14:15; Mark 12:29; 16:15; Matthew 28:19; Leviticus 18:4]

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies."

We Weaken Immune System By Isolating People
Body is robbed natural ability to develop immunities
Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi own the largest testing site in Kern County, California:
"Accelerated Urgent Care"

- Do such numbers “necessitate shutting down medical systems?”
- Do such numbers “necessitate people being out of work?”
“I’ve talked to the head of the California Dept of Public Health. I’ve gotten their opinion on this and a lot of the leaders in Sacramento, and we’re all in agreement, but we need to have Governor Newsom in agreement with us to lift this (stay-at-home order). I’ve talked to our local head of the Health Dept. and even though they’re in agreement with me, they’re waiting for the powers that be to lift.”

4-22-20, 23 ABC News, KERO -- Dr. Dan Erickson of Accelerated Health Care talks about the impact of the lockdown and the coronavirus on Kern County California. The numbers of the Covid virus victims are low as well as fatality rate. Having made it their “life’s work” to understand immunology, microbiology, biochemistry and virology, Dr. Erickson and Dr. Massihi conclude that all of our sheltering in place, excessive hand washing, not touching our faces, wearing of masks, wearing of gloves, disinfecting our homes, and so on, has robbed our bodies of their natural ability to develop immunities. In other words, by staying home for extended periods of time, we are weakening our immune systems. The longer we do it, the worse it gets.

Does God keep punishing us for our sins even after we've confessed them and asked Him to forgive us?
If we are ‘in’ Christ Jesus … there is no condemnation; Christ took our sins away... but...
4-25-20, Archives of Billy Graham -- When we are born again we confessed our sins and put our faith and trust in Christ alone for our salvation so we are ‘IN CHRIST’ [Romans 8:1, John 3:3, 7], God takes away all our guilt – absolutely and completely. The psalmist declared, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord’ – and You forgave the guilt of my sin.” (Psalm 32:5) We are forgiven!
However, this doesn’t mean that all the consequences of our past sins will suddenly vanish and we’ll no longer have to deal with them. Sin always has consequences – always. The devil tries to convince us that this isn’t so and that we can ignore God’s laws and get by with it – but that’s a lie. The guilt for our sins is gone when we repent and come to Christ – but the consequences often remain. [Colossians 2:14]
We must not let this fact discourage us, because something is different about our lives now: God is with us! We no longer have to face our problems and temptations alone. God has come to live within us and by His Holy Spirit [Acts 2:37-39] He will help us as we turn to Him. The Bible says, “The Spirit helps us in our weakness.” (Romans 8:26)
If we should unintentionally slip and sin … we must immediately confess being determined not to do it again … and as time goes by we will become stronger in the Lord and have less and less slip ups. [1 John 1:19] However, if we deliberately and repeatedly continue to sin without any remorse ... we probably were never born again in the first place. [Hebrews 6:4, 10:26-31] God knows our hearts. [Matthew 7:23]
Each day, we must turn our problems over to Christ asking Him to give us the strength and the wisdom to deal with them. [Romans 5:10] Source
Do you know you're going to Heaven when you die?

"He that hath the Son [Messiah Jesus Christ] hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life." 1 John 5:12-13

After Virus 'Pandemic' World's Economic Lock Down; Hunger May Reach 250 Million in a World of 7.7 Billion People: Biblical Proportions
Source: World Food Program (WFP)
The Lord Jesus said, "Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places."
4-24-20, WFP -- The world is at risk of widespread famines “of biblical proportions” caused by the world government's delusion locking own nations resulting in economic disaster in an attempt to quell the Covid-19 virus that has been proven to have a high rate of recovery. The WFP’s senior economist, Arif Husain, said the economic impact of the pandemic was potentially catastrophic for millions “Who are already hanging by a thread. It is a hammer blow for millions more who can only eat if they earn a wage. Lockdowns and global economic recession have already decimated their nest eggs. It only takes one more shock to push them over the edge. We must collectively act now to mitigate the impact of this global catastrophe.“
David Beasley, head of the World Food Program (WFP), said in his report that estimates of populations suffering from hunger could go from 135 million to more than 250 million; calling it the worst humanitarian catastrophe since the Second World War.
Those most at risk are in 10 countries affected by conflict, economic crisis. The fourth annual Global Report on Food Crises highlights Yemen, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Nigeria and Haiti. In South Sudan, 61% of the population was affected by food crisis last year, the report says. Even before the virus fiasco hit, parts of East Africa and South Asia were already facing severe food shortages caused by drought and the worst locust infestations for decades. Disaster of western nations soon to follow.
Addressing the UN Security Council during a video conference, Mr Beasley said: "Excuse me for speaking bluntly; the world must act wisely and fast. We could be facing multiple famines of biblical proportions within a short few months. The truth is we do not have time on our side. I do believe that with our expertise and our partnerships, we can bring together the teams and the programs necessary to make certain the new pandemic does not become a human and food crisis catastrophe.“ [..snip]

US President Trump is right: defund the World Health Org [WHO] But can he?
4-15-20, WashExam -- Recently Pres Trump announced that he will halt financial contributions to the WHO while his administration conducts an investigation into the organization’s handling of Covid-19 virus. However, he's already faced Democrat blowback; but he is absolutely correct here. There's ample reason to believe that the WHO’s mishandling of COVID-19 fiasco has left the world unnecessarily and unreasonably unprepared for this virus and the organization’s continued parroting of Chinese propaganda is motivated by more than mere stupidity. The WHO’s mistakes were not few nor isolated. In January 2020 it downplayed the risk of the virus repeating China's numbers as fact; then misled the public to believe that the virus could not spread via human-to-human. It publicly refused to acknowledge scientific data from Taiwan simply because China does not view Taiwan as a legitimate country.
<--WHO railed against intl travel bans, condemning and recommending against them as late as February 29, 2020 — an unjustifiable and shockingly late application of political correctness to salve the feelings of the Chinese dictatorial regime that had supported and helped elect WHO's current president.
Since Feb 2020, WHO officials have been focused on appeasing China instead of holding the regime accountable for its dishonesty despite revelations from the U.S. intelligence community that revealed China leader Xi Jinping repeatedly lied.
However, Pres Trump - at this time - cannot withhold funding from WHO as it's already been appropriated for 2020. The president doesn’t have a method for taking it away. Democrat controlled Congress controls appropriations & Nancy Pelosi isn’t going to approve WHO being defunded. Therefore, Trump’s announcement changes nothing whatsoever for the rest of the year.

Dr Erickson goes over faulty projection numbers from Drs Fauci & Birx compared to actual numbers for Covid virus. He shows that the tests and confirmed cases on record that the death rate is under 1%. He also shows comparison of Sweden vs Norway where Sweden did not lockdown and Norway did. Pres Trump was given only option ... if you don't lock down nation millions will die - that was false - but he had no choice he didn't/doesn't want any Americans to die.

Discernment: Judging “Fruit”
A fig tree cannot grow olives or a grapevine grow figs; neither can a salt spring produce fresh water; so how can a flagrantly deliberate, repeated unrepentant sinner be a born again believer in Christ Jesus?
The Lord Jesus said, “Every tree that does not bring forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not everyone that saith unto Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? And in Thy name have cast out devils and done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them,” I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity!”
4-23-20, * -- There are many people who claim to be Bible believing born again “Christians” [John 3:3, 7] while their actions and behaviors say otherwise. The Lord Jesus explicitly said, “ye shall know them by their fruits.” [Galatians 5:22-26] True born again believers are not to “judge” other people’s claims of being a Christian; only the Lord knows our hearts. (Matthew 7:1-5) However, every true believer needs to be aware of the ‘standing’ of people they come in contact with; it’s an obligation. How else would we obey the command not to be unequally yoked [2 Corinthians 6:14] with unbelievers if we can’t discern if they are? It’s basically simple to see if a person’s “fruits” are consistent with their claim. Actions, behaviors and obedience to God are their ‘fruit’ as true believers do not the following:
- deny God’s Word spending time inventing various conflicting theories in an attempt to replace God’s truths trying to make it say what they want to believe; changing the meaning of what it literally says
- “pick and choose” what they want to believe, ignore, deny or repeatedly disobey what they don’t want to believe without repentance
The Lord Jesus Christ’s Great Commission [Matthew 28:18-20] to His faithful followers is one of the most significant passages in the Holy Bible. It's the last recorded personal instruction given by Jesus to His disciples and a special calling to all His followers to share His good news with a lost and dying world. Jesus came, died and rose again to save all repentant sinners who seriously intend to live for and obey Him. [John 14:6, 15; Mark 16:15; 1 Corinthians 1:18] We need to share this truth to all we are able.

Coronavirus Recovery & Symptoms
WebMd.com -- Covid-19 has high recovery rate as most people will experience a mild case with a 2-week recovery. Early estimates predict that the overall COVID-19 recovery rate is between 97% and 99.75% for people with no other health issues or the elderly. If you contract the virus, symptoms may show up 2 to 14 days after your infection and can vary from one person to the next. The most common sign is a fever, which for most adults is 100.4 F or higher. Nearly 9 in 10 people who test positive for the disease have a high temperature...
Why the COVID-19 Financial Crisis Is Like No Other
3-18-20, Time.com -- During the last recession, there wasn’t enough attention paid to people who found themselves faced with huge bills and had to file for bankruptcy or go deep into debt. The country is being affected by a sudden shock that is preventing people from going to work and getting paid. Checks from the government might help people buy food and pay rent, but they won’t fill concert halls, restaurants —especially when shelter-in-place restrictions are still in place. -->
<--The majority of those workers who've been furloughed are hourly workers who were already scraping by; 40% of Americans would have trouble covering an unexpected $400 expense. The stimulus 'bandaid' approved by Congress is not enough to protect the millions of workers who may not be able to buy food; workers have nothing to fall back on. If people get $1,000, but can’t leave their house what good is it ... it's only a temporary fix. The 'lockdown' is worse than the virus that has a high recovery rate ...
Threescore Years and Ten
“The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labor and sorrow; for it is soon cut off and we fly away.”
4-22-20, Henry Morris, PhD --When Moses wrote about age seventy or eighty being the average age of man on earth; it was near the end of his life at age 120 years old (Deuteronomy 34:7). All the rest of the people of Israel (except Caleb and Joshua) who had been over 20 at the beginning of the 40-year wilderness wanderings had died there (Numbers 14:28-34) and so there were no others over sixty years old.
In former days men had lived much longer. The oldest, Methuselah died at age 969 [Genesis 5:27], Adam died at 930, Noah at 950, Shem only lived to 600 and Abraham died at 175 years of age. Thus, the normal lifespan by Moses’ time was down to 70 or 80 years and he prophesied that this would continue.
The purpose of mankind is to honor and serve almighty God; that's why He created us. And as we grow older it should be our focus as no other. We fulfill our purpose of glorifying God by living our lives in relationship and faithful service to Him (1 Samuel 12:24; John 17:4) and telling others what Christ has done how our lives have changed. King Solomon tried living for his own pleasure, yet at the end of his life he concluded that the only worthwhile life is one of honor and obedience to God (Ecclesiastes 12:13–14).
For mankind the latter years are largely “labor and sorrow.” (Genesis 3:17-20). Many elderly people struggle mightily to prolong their lives; but we're “soon cut off,” then, we “fly away!” The soul/spirit complex of the born again [John 3:3, 7] Christian believer, released from its weary body, flies away to be with the Lord. Those left behind may sorrow, but “to depart, and to be with Christ…is far better.” [Philippians 3:17, 20-21]
“For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” (Philippians 1:23, 21)
In the meantime, as our time grows shorter, it is more important than ever that we “walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time” (Colossians 4:5). “So teach us to number our days,” prayed Moses (and so should we), “that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom” (Psalm 90:12; Job 12:12; Ecclesiastes 1:18). Christians are disciples of Christ - we have a mandate to share His good news of salvation with a lost and dying world. Jesus is the Only WAY to have eternal life with God.

Humans Lockdown Over Virus - leaving streets diserted
Wild Animals Reclaim Territory
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa said in early April 2020 that he would extend the quarantine at least until the end of the month.
- In India people in New Delhi have spotted monkeys looking for food in an alleyway lined with closed shops. And peacocks venturing to the city of Bengaluru 
- In Venice, Italy, clear blue canals have lured swans and fish before tourists return in gondolas.
- In Wales mountain goats roamed the streets of Llandudno; they typically live on a nearby hill that looks over the town, rarely heading into it.
- In Illinois USA the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago that’s closed to the public, penguins have been released into the public areas and are wandering about.
- London England a herd of deer settled on someone’s front lawn

Why did the Jews So Meekly & Willingly Cooperate with the Nazis?
In 1941 Germany & Poland the many places where Jews were first sent were small sections of their own towns; then the Jewish areas were blocked off, allowing very little food in or anything else to enter. After being starved and herded like cattle, they were promised safety that IF they went ...
<-- they would go to a place where they would receive proper care & provisions. Instead they were herded into trains where there was no food or water where they were summarily tortured, starved & slaughtered as sheep. [Note: any promises from government for its citizens safety is to be carefully examined. The government cannot protect us from a virus - it can destroy us however by taking our jobs & closing down our businesses over a virus that has very high recovery rate.]
WHAT'S UP WITH AREA51? The Truth Is Out There some Americans went to see ...
4-22-20, PopMech -- Today, Area 51 is still very much in use. According to Google Earth, new construction & expansions are continuously happening. On most early mornings, eagle-eyed visitors can spot strange lights in the sky moving up & down. No, it's not a UFO; it's the semi-secret contract commuter airline using the call-sign "Janet" that transports workers from Las Vegas's McCarran Airport to the base. As for what's happening these days in America's most secretive military base, few know for sure.
<-- There are many educated guesses, including improved stealth technology, advanced weapons, electronic warfare systems & in particular, unmanned aerial vehicles. Chris Pocock, noted U-2 historian and author of several books about the matter, told Popular Mechanics he thinks classified aircraft, more exotic forms of radio communication, directed energy weapons, and lasers are currently under development at the base. While the lore around Area 51 may be nothing more than imaginative fiction, that won't stop people from gawking just beyond those chain link fences. More here: https://ly/2Y1Oc5Q
The Penalty for Blasphemy
"A woman's son blasphemed the name of the LORD, and cursed. And they brought him unto Moses: (and his mother's name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan:) 12And they put him in ward, that the mind of the LORD might be shewed them. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying: "Bring forth him that hath cursed without the camp; and let all that heard him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation stone him. 15And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Whosoever curseth his God shall bear his sin. 16And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of the LORD, shall be put to death."
4-21-20, * -- Taking the Lord’s name in vain is the third of the Lord’s Ten Commandments of what we must not commit. Cursing the name of the Lord is a particularly brazen violation of the of the Ten Commandments [Deuteronomy 5:11]. God takes His glory and honor seriously; for He is the most worthy being of all (1 Sam. 2:12–36; Heb. 3:3). Cursing Him is a grievous sin.
The issue of blaspheming the Holy Spirit is a difficult one, most Bible scholars agree that we have not committed this sin if we feel remorse and want God to forgive us intending not to repeat the offence.
Today’s passage [Leviticus 24:11-12, 13-16] illustrates that the Lord will not hold guiltless those who commit blasphemy (Deut. 5:11):
- God does not overlook any sin, so no one is held guiltless for breaking His law
- Only when we have repented trusting Christ Jesus to forgive and accept us as we obey Him can we be forgiven (Rom. 3:21–26)
- All forms of blasphemy are forgivable except the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, which is the impenitent ascription of the works of the Devil to the Lord even when one knows better (Matt. 12:22–32). Only those whose hearts have been completely hardened against God and His grace have committed this sin.
