The woman, Tabitha lived in the port city of Joppa; she was a renowned philanthropist. She had a vital ministry helping widows and the poor. As she became ill, subsequently died and prepared for burial, the apostle Peter was summoned. He rushed to her bedside praying ... thus raising her from death.
To Tabitha belongs the worthy distinction of being the only woman in the New Testament identified as a disciple. The name 'Tabitha' is interpreted Dorcas: she was full of good works. She became sick and died: her body was washed and laid in an upper chamber awaiting burial when the disciples called for Peter.
Peter went with the disciples to Joppa. They brought him into the upper chamber: and all the widows stood by him weeping. Peter put them all forth and kneeled down, praying and turning to the body said, "Tabitha, arise." She opened her eyes: and seeing Peter, she sat up. Acts 9:36-40
Chicago: Murders Exceed Los Angeles & New York Combined ... Chicago’s gangs “no longer know or fear the police”
8/31/2016, Chicago is wrapping up its most deadly month on record since the mid-90s, with more than 480 people shot and 78 dead, almost all of them ascribed to gang violence. The total number of murders for the year is nearing 500 – well on track for a record – and there’s still a full four months to go.
This grim milestone adds up to more murders than New York City and Los Angeles combined. We’ve pretty much run out of awful adjectives to describe what’s going on in the 'windy city.' The Harrison District on the West Side, for example, has had almost 400 people shot this year after logging 350 all of last year. Englewood saw 330 people shot all of last year and has tallied close to 300 this year. more

Europe: 16 Years Ago He Said, 'MultiCulturalism Won't Work!" They Didn't Believe Him, Thought He Was Racist ...
Dutch commentator Paul Scheffer published his "Multicultural Drama" declaring that multiculturalism in the Netherlands had failed. No one believed him; across Europe his angry critics just called him racist, bigoted and nationalistic. Others dismissed his views as mere rants and ramblings of a Leftist in search of a cause. They now see the 'light.' more
Currently, with European Muslim youth radicalizing at an unprecedented rate and the threat of new terrorist attacks, Europe is reassessing its handling of Muslim communities and its counter terrorism strategies and laws. Among the changes being considered are a reversal of laws that allow radical Muslims to receive handouts from the very governments they seek to destroy; restricting foreign funding of mosques; and stronger surveillance on private citizens.
Following the November 2015 attacks in Paris, Dutch intelligence agencies from all EU countries, Switzerland, and Norway, now have the objective of sharing information, exchanging new clues, insights, and suspect alerts, and discussing improvements to a Europe-wide system of counterterrorism and intelligence. more
9-1-16, In my view I'd rather have a man who is familiar with handling great wealth and a vast payroll using HIS OWN money than having a inexperienced novice take over the great budget of the USA as we did with Obama.
And considering that - although Mrs. Clinton currently also has great wealth - she acquired it using the USA government and donations from others. She never actually created anything on her own. What payroll does she have?
Mr Trump is a well known patriot of the USA and has her best interests at heart. He doesn't need to ravage the coffers of the United States of America.

US Politics: All This Media Hullaballou About Russia Hacking Into the Election May Be a 'Setup!' As we know the media is not for Trump
VANITY: Are they setting us up to blame the RUSSIANS for the voter fraud?
The plan obviously is that when that nasty treasonous creature Clinton STEALS the election is. Well you HAVE been following the news right?
If that corrupt woman gets the win and then gets exposed with electronic voting fraud who is going to be blamed? Maybe The RUSSIANS! The RUSSIANS! The RUSSIANS!

Anna is one of the Bible’s most unusual women. Introduced at the end of the Birth Narrative (Luke 1:1-2:40). Anna was called a 'Prophetess' who after Simeon arrives at the purification of Mary, she arrives. Simeon and Anna arrive at the ritual independently, though both seem led by divine direction (Luke 2:22-38). Simeon prophesies that the child, Jesus is God’s salvation, “prepared in the sight of all people, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel” (Luke 2:28, 30b-32). Simeon praises the Lord while Anna offers thanks.
"There was one Anna, a prophetess,
the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity; She was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of Him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem." Luke 2:36-38

US Election Polls Mean Nothing -- Dave Hodges
John Coleman, the author of the classic book Conspirators Hierarchy, The Committee of 300, was one of the the first writers to call attention to the existence of Tavistock, in 1969, and the rest as they say is history. Subsequently, we learn from Coleman’s work that polls were designed to not really measure public opinion, they were designed to shape public opinion.
The Pollsters Are Polling
8-30-16, Bill Wilson -- Everyday there is a new poll about the upcoming election. People are concerned when the polls are trending away from their candidates. But don't be alarmed. Polling is a science. The candidates themselves commission the best polls. They usually know the real story. To accurately reflect the situation, polls must be taken from a random sample; the questions must be asked in a way that do not bias the answer; and there can be no leading of the interviewee in any direction by the one asking the questions. The polls taken by the news organizations rarely follow these criteria. Their samplings are biased toward what they perceive as a larger Democratic base and the questions are slanted to lead the interviewee. [..snip] One questions pollsters ask:: "Would you be more or less likely to vote for Donald Trump if you knew he has supported racism by..." or "Would you be more or less likely to vote for Hillary Clinton if you knew she supported the unequivocal right of a women to have an abortion?"
It's interesting to note is that the test themes [in the polls] all had a common theme; anyone who would vote for Trump will be labeled a racist and a bigot. Clinton, from the direction of this poll, appears to be seriously considering cornering the voters and dividing them based on racism and bigotry. If you don't want to be labeled a racist, you better vote Hillary. This is a longstanding political tactic of the Hegelian Dialectic used by communists to move people from what they think to what they want them to think.
Exercise your sound mind as led by the Holy Spirit.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Lyle Steed Jeffs, along with 10 other members of the Fundamentalist Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS aka Mormons), were charged with defrauding the government of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP aka food stamps) benefits, as well as conspiracy to commit money laundering in February. FBI warns that Jeffs should be considered armed and dangerous. The men were released June 9 to await their trial, scheduled for October. Jeffs escaped 10 days later, around June 18 or 19, possibly by coating his feet with olive oil and slipping out of his ankle monitor. [Note: Sure seems like overkill to me - while Obama releases criminals by the thousands from prison and Gitmo; while the FBI although finds many lies and careless handling of NATIONAL SECURITY and won't prosecute her ... they are sweating to get this Mormon behind bars for food stamp abuse!? Your view? - Annette ]

Jesse Jackson thinks Donald Trump is a champion of minority empowerment. Or at least he used to before the turn of the millennium.
In both 1998 and 1999, Trump was an honored guest at the annual Wall Street Conference hosted by the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, Jackson’ DC-based “multi-racial, multi-issue, progressive, international membership organization fighting for social change.” He said: “We need your building skills, your gusto,” Jackson told the real estate mogul before stating Trump is a model for “people on Wall Street to represent diversity.”
It’s a mighty sad day in Travelers Rest, South Carolina – where patriotism is determined on a “case-by-case” basis – in a stadium named after a man who nearly gave his life defending the Stars & Stripes. The principal, in an effort to prevent any potential issue in this rivalry game, decided not to allow students to bring in full-sized American flags. They were turned away at the gate with the flag and told they were welcome to come in, but they could not bring their flags with them. Fox News here
King David made a pact with the Philistines; Rizpah's two sons were massacred, and although against Hebrew law, their bodies lay exposed without burial. For months, night and day, Rizpah, publicly mourned and protected their bodies from predators. Her actions won over King David; he went to war against the Philistines and won. The men had a proper burial and ultimately the famine ended.
"The two sons of Rizpah whom she bare unto Saul, Armoni and Mephibosheth; And he delivered them into the hands of the Gibeonites, and they hanged them in the hill before the Lord: and they fell all seven together, and were put to death ... And Rizpah took sackcloth, and spread it for her upon the rock, from the beginning of harvest until water dropped upon them out of heaven, and allowed neither the birds of the air to rest on them by day, nor the beasts of the field by night."

A recent study by an Oklahoma think tank found that teachers’ salaries in Michigan are the highest in the nation ... although salary data from a National Education Association survey showed that Michigan’s average teacher salary when unadjusted is $63,878, ranking 10th nationally. But when salaries are adjusted to reflect the difference between prices here and the national average, Michigan teachers on average earned the equivalent of $69,888 in the 2015-16 school year. The study was authored by Byron Schlomach of the Oklahoma-based 1889 Institute, a free-market think tank. http://www.michigancapitolconfidential.com/22723

The 1,100-mile pipeline, which is estimated to cost $3.7 billion, is nearly halfway complete. But construction on a section that would sink beneath the Missouri River, just north of the reservation of the Standing Rock Sioux, has been halted under orders from the sheriff of Morton County, Kyle Kirchmeier. He said protesters, nearly 30 of whom have been arrested in recent weeks, were creating safety issues. Yet the protesters say they are creating something very different – new resistance against what they say is a seemingly endless number of pipelines, export terminals and rail lines that would transport fossil fuels across or near tribal reservations, risking pollution to air, water and land. more

✝️ 7-11-20, The weight of the 'world's sin' ... the infinite blessings and resources of our salvation in Christ are described as providing the power of surpassing greatness, the grace of surpassing richness, the peace which surpasses all understanding. Thank YOU, Lord. John 1:29; Revelation 5:12; Philippians 4:7
✝️ 7-9-20, When the Lord Jesus was on the cross and the people scorned and scoffed; His great love for all ignorant uninformed sinners showed forth. He died for all sinners. Romans 5:8; Luke 23:34 However, after we are aware we're no longer ignorant of Who He was and 'what we do;' THEN we are all responsible if we reject Christ. John 3:17-18
6-29-20, Jesus said, 'Obey Me!' John 14:15; 1 John 2:3, 3:22 Of course we are forgiven when we sincerely pray for forgiveness turning our lives to the Lord Jesus. We must intend to sin no more ... if we do ... quickly repent as we didn't INTEND to. John 8:11 More here: https://www.gotquestions.org/go-and-sin-no-more.html
✝️ 6-27-29, The lawlessness we are now seeing on America's streets ... who are these young people? The kids raised under liberal theories forcing parents to withhold discipline from their children & taught liberal leftist dogma in the government schools & universities - now they are unruly selfish hateful barbarians. God said to train up children & they wouldn't depart from it [Proverbs 22:6] □□ ... true for evil □ as well as good □ behaviors. More here: https://bit.ly/3i55gQf
✝️ 6-12-20, The Lord □Jesus' mom, Mary's cousin Elizabeth's son John the Baptist was brutally killed because of a wicked hateful woman. Her foolish husband, King Herod - although he liked John; had him executed because of a promise - he musta been drunk - to make such a promise to his wife's daughter, Salome who's mom, Herodias wanted John dead. Matthew 14:3-11; Mark 6:14-29; Luke 9:7-9
✝️ 6-11-20, Regarding forgiveness: the Lord □ Jesus clearly taught that marriage was between a husband & wife. [Matthew 19:5; Mark 7:21] He loves all sinners both the heterosexual & homosexual. He promises forgiveness to everyone who repents coming to Him for salvation. He told the woman caught in adultery: "Go and sin no more.” Matthew 11:28
✝️ 6-9-20, The Lord □ Jesus explained to Nicodemus that he must be 'born again' [John 3.3, 7]. In Utah I've heard some LDS people scoff and ridicule believers in Christ who are 'born again.' Those who scorn are lost; Jesus clearly said to 'marvel not that you must be born again'; without Christ we are lost. John 3:17-18
✝️ 6-8-20, Jesus is God; He came to save sinners. “For He [Jesus] Whom God sent speaks the words of God: The Father loves the Son & has given all things into His hand. He that believs on the Son hath everlasting life & they that believes not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on them.” John 3:34-36
✝️ 6-7-20, The Lord □ Jesus spoke from the cross first of forgiveness, salvation then of His Mother's care into John's hands. He spoke of being forsaken & then triumph as His task as human was complete shedding His perfect blood for the forgiveness of sins to all who repent believing in Him. His body was thirsty. And last of His reunion with the Father. Matthew 27:46; Luke 23:34, 43, 46; John 19:26-28, 30; Mark 15:34
✝️ 6-3-20, Interesting the different duties of God's arch angels. Michael is a warrior who will defeat Satan and Gabriel was/is God's messenger appearing to: Prophet Daniel 8:15-17, 9:21-24 ... Zacharias, father of John the Baptist, Luke 1:11-18... Mary, Mother of Jesus, Luke 1:26-31... Joseph, Husband of Mary, Matthew 1:20-24, 2-13
✝️ 6-2-20, In appx 530 BC the Lord God of Israel chose the Persian [aka Iran] King Cyrus to protect and help the Jewish exiles in Babylon. Who would come back and rebuild Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem where now - since 688 AD - a Muslim mosque sits. Mark 13:14; Isaiah 45:4-6, 9, 12-13. World Without End. Ephesians 3:20-21
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12; Jeremiah 1:5; Galatians 6:7; 1 Thessalonians 5:4
✝️ 5-27-20, See Romans 13:11; James 5:8; 1 Peter 4:7; 1 Thessalonians 2:19; Titus 2:13; 1 Cor 15:51-52, Rev 11:15 Scripture tells us that "The coming of the Lord is at hand;" but thousands of years have passed without the Lord’s coming. We must remember that one thousand years are like one day to God (Psalm 90:4; 2 Peter 3:8). The rapture will happen without warning at any time and believers in the Lord Jesus must be ready at all time. Certain current events cause us to believe we are near the Lord’s trumpet call and that the rapture of the church is ‘at hand.
✝️ 5-22-20, Interesting that the Lord □ Jesus said at the 'LAST SUPPER' He'd drink wine with the Apostles again in His Father's kingdom. Another confirmation & validation of scripture & teaching that we will be with Him in glory. Hallelujah! Matthew 26:26-30; Mark 14:22-26; Luke 22:14-23; 1 Corinthians 11:23-34
utah333 ✝️ 5-19-20, No other Disciple of Christ had so many visions & revelations as the Apostle Paul & he isn't generous with his descriptions. So his report - when he was translated [aka raptured] - is sparse. Some believe it happened when he was left for dead after he was stoned at Lystra. [Acts 14:19] Whenever it happened it's encouraging to add his name to the list of the other five: Enoch, Elijah, Philip, John and Jesus. Next it'll be the 'Church.' More here https://bit.ly/3bIwuI1
✝️ 5-18-20, In 1634 AD Rembrandt's 'DOUBTING THOMAS' painting depicts the fact that disciple Thomas did not touch the risen Lord Jesus. Shame and shock is what's displayed when he exclaimed, 'MY LORD AND MY GOD!' And the admonition of Christ that those who've not seen still believe are blessed. John 20:24-29
✝️ 5-17-20, During these stressful times as the world struggles to understand believing they can fight against a virus; when the economy is falling everywhere ... I feel such pity for those who don't know the Lord □ Jesus. Surely they are most fearful. The Lord said if you only have faith as small as a tiny mustard seed nothing shall be impossible. Luke 13:3; Ma
✝️ 5-8-20, □ Jesus is the Light of the world. His born again disciples carry His Light. We are hated as He was hated because evil mankind loves wickedness and darkness. Example: Christian churches closed for Easter during covid scare; but Muslim mosques aren’t – New York giving them 500K free meals for Ramadan. Matthew 10:22; Mark 13:13; John 3:19, 9:5; Galatians 2:20
✝️ 5-7-20, Sins □ Jesus Harshly Condemns; He said, “God knows our hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. V9 For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” [Pride] Luke 16:15, 18:9-14; Hebrews 1:8-9
✝️ 4-30-20, When the Lord □ Jesus Mother told her son that at the Cana wedding celebration there was no wine - I wonder if the Lord did little miracles around the house so Mary knew of His abilities expecting Him to quickly whip up some good wine. And He did! The Lord's first miracle on earth water into wine. John 2:1-11
✝️ 4-29-20, We learn the importance of loving God from Psalm 91 where Moses is blessed by God Who said: 'v9 Because thou hast made the Lord... the most High, thy habitation; v14 Because he hath set his love upon Me, therefore, l will deliver him & set him on high, because he hath known My name. He shall call upon Me & I will deliver him ... & shew him My salvation." Psalm 90:1, 91-14
✝️ 4-28-20, The Lord □ Jesus, in the book of Matthew, lists what’s called the “Beatitudes.” He lists the items in our lives in His 'Sermon on the Mount' that examine our values, vision & habits to wholehearted obedience to God. We seek His forgiveness & acceptance for eternal life with Him; this is the good news 'Gospel.' John 14:6; Matthew 5:1-48, 6:1-34, 7:1-28.
✝️ 4-27-20, In the days when □ Jesus walked the earth and healed all who came to Him ... imagine the horror of those who He healed who believed He was the Son of God as they may have watched their Savior brutalized and killed. Hopefully they were nearby 3 days later!! Hallelujah. Mark 16:1-20; John 20:1-31
✝️ 4-26-20, Seeing this wonderful painting of King Jesus with this beautiful child makes me think of all the innocent children who are now with Him in Heaven as their lives were brutally taken in abortion before they were officially 'born.' I imagine those millions of babies will be in the Lord's army when He returns in power and glory. Hallelujah! Revelation 19:11, 14
✝️ 4-22-20, Considering the harsh punishment God meted out in the Old Testament for blasphemy - why do people in the modern world now think it's perfectly permissible to disobey God's commandment #3 & blaspheme [deliberately & repeatedly] HIS HOLY NAME?? God will not be mocked [Galatians 6:7] there is judgment coming someday; He has a record book, keys to death & Hell. Revelation 1:17-20
✝️ 4-14-20, Based on the behaviors of some church goers; apparently they think God is like an old lenient Grandpa winking at deliberate unrepentant sin. Even sins that are done repeatedly with no remorse. Because the Lord God loves us so much, He generously warns us ... He has a book where names of forgiven sinners are recorded. Almighty God demands us to honor and obey Him. Revelation 1:18, 3:5, 20:1; Malachi 3:16 □□
