An Introduction to Christ
Jesus Christ is the first-born from the dead. The Savior bore our sins and died on the cross, was buried, and rose again on the third day. His resurrection proved that eternal life is possible for us, too, as Jesus taught in John 11:25: “He who believes in Me will live even if he dies.”
Jesus Christ is the ruler of the kings of the earth. It is the Lord who raises men to power, just as it is He who removes them (John 19:11; Rom. 13:1). Meanwhile, believers have access to a higher authority. In God’s throne room, we can beseech Him on behalf of our nations and lay claim to His promises.
Jesus Christ loves us and released us from our sins by His blood. Note the change of tense in John’s writing.
The Lord’s love is ever-present, but He has freed believers from their past. Both the penalty and power of sin have been broken.
When people ask you about Jesus, introduce Him by guiding them through this mini-biography. In just a few sentences, John describes Christ’s character, divinity, and authority. The disciple was not timid about proclaiming the Lord. We shouldn’t be shy, either, when we serve so great a Savior. Source
Why the Stock Market's Dow Jones Industrial Average
11-25-20, APicciano.commons.gc.cuny. edu -- The economy has improved since Covid virus' initial scare. The Covid vaccine could begin distribution by the end of the year has recently given the market more reason to be optimistic. The Dow’s rocket ride to 30,000 got big boosts from the Federal Reserve, which slashed short-term interest rates back to roughly zero and took other measures to stabilize financial markets and Congress came through with trillions of dollars of financial aid for the economy.
Claims for unemployment benefits dropped from 6.9 million in March 2020 to 742,000 last week. Company profits didn’t tank as much as initially feared.
Since then, Honeywell and Caterpillar have provided the biggest boosts to the Dow as expectations have built for a recovering economy.
Over the longer term, profits strengthened sharply for most Dow companies since it first rose above the 20,000 threshold at the start of 2017. At American Express analysts expect earnings per share to bounce back from the pandemic and tally $6.69 next year, versus $6.07 in recurring earnings in 2016.
At the same time, investors today are more willing to pay higher prices for each $1 of earnings because alternatives are less attractive. The yield on the 10-year Treasury Tuesday was 0.88% compared with 2.5% in January 2017...
DO NOT BE CAUGHT UNAWARE:
A GREAT SHAKING IS COMING TO AMERICA
On December 21, 2020 Three Planet Alignment:
‘Christmas Star’ First Time in 800 years
The Lord Jesus Christ said:
“Take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, drunkenness, cares of this life and so that day come upon you unawares. 35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 Watch ye therefore praying always that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man [Jesus]."
10-15-20, * -- The Lord Jesus is coming! 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 Sad that mockers and scoffers say -- “We heard that before! When will this be?” 2 Peter 3:3-4 I say, when you least expect it will happen; did Korah expect the ground to open and swallow him and his followers? Numbers 16:32
The Lord Jesus told us: “There shall be signs in the sun, moon and stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring.” Luke 21:25
Distress of nations? America was only great when the Lord Jesus was first in the hearts of the majority. Now that the laws of the land have been corrupted and the hearts of many people are polluted by depravity and wickedness … He is no longer.
The USA has not repented for blaspheming the holy name of the Lord, the murder of millions of unborn babies and legalizing the marriage of same sex couples.
The Lord said now a handful of misguided people hold prayer rallies calling on Me to forgive this Nation - "I will not hear them!' We see in Jeremiah 14:7-9 intercessory prayer was offered, but not heard. We see that intercession even of Moses and Samuel (Jeremiah 15:1; 1 Samuel 12:23) would profit nothing. The Lord said: “Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto Me for their trouble.” Jeremiah 11:14
[Note: 23 rapture scriptures here]
- On Thursday, 12/10/20 or Kislev 24 (Hanukkah only day mentioned in scripture Haggai 2:18-23) The Lord’s feast begins with an the eight day celebration called ‘The Festival of Lights’ – King Jesus is the ‘Light of the World.’ John 8:12
- On Tuesday, 12/14/20 there is a solar eclipse [which means judgment of the nations] and this is the day of the Electoral college vote in America. [There is a terrible dispute over the outcome of the recent Nov 3, 2020 presidential election and it’s expected to go to the Supreme Court.]
- On Tuesday, 12/21/2020 is the winter solstice; the shortest day of the year
- On 12/21/20 a rare planetary alignment of Jupiter /Saturn/Mars first time in 800 years ; it’s been called the Star of Bethlehem to announce the "birth of Christ." Matthew 2:1-23 
Of America’s 330 million population, only a small number will be raptured when Jesus calls His children out. 1 Corinthians 15:52 Reportedly, sixty million attend a ‘Christian’ church, but too many are dead to the Holy Spirit being unrepentant, disobedient “church attendees.” These lost souls support many divorces, abortion of children, homosexual marriage defending the depravity of many; leaving only 17 million who will be called out. I believe the Lord is coming before 2020 ends. Even so, please come Lord Jesus. Revelation 22:20
“The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.” Isaiah 24:19-20

Mainstream Media told Not Allowed to Investigate Voter Fraud
11-19-20, USSANews -- I was just told by a journalist in one of the top three newspapers that they were just told NO STORIES of any voter fraud.
This is pretty much confirming that indeed this election was stolen and the mainstream media will not publish or investigate anything that would undermine mentally impaired 78 yr old Democrat Joe Biden.
Utah Senator Mitt Romney claims President Trump investigating strong evidence that there has been voter fraud in the Nov 3, 2020 election is 'undemocratic' ... The charge is absurd on its face. How is exploring and utilizing all avenues of the law “undemocratic”?
The “no evidence of voter fraud” line is also patently false. There is plenty of evidence staring us right in the face: not just the videos and stories out of ballot counting stations across the country, but statistical evidence like voter turnout percentage as well.
People like Mitt couch their opinion on the voter fraud allegations in terms of not being presented and argued in a court of law. It takes serious time to gather evidence and build up a case that can be argued beyond a reasonable doubt, and there are hard and fast deadlines in place for certifying votes and the convening of the Electoral College.
To us average citizens, we have seen enough evidence of fishy or illegal behavior to make up our minds. If Joe Biden becomes president, he will not have done so fairly and squarely.

Arizona Voter Fraud Witness Army Col. Phil Waldron
11-30-20, Spectator -- Rudy Giuliani's first witness at the Arizona hearing on Monday was information warfare officer Retired Army Colonel Phil Waldron. Waldron is an expert on automated voting machines. On 11/25/20 in Pennsylvania's public hearing on “election issues” - one military officer Army Col Phil Waldron dropped a bombshell about a 600,000 voter spike that caused the entire audience to gasp.
Both in PA and AZ Col Waldron said that only a “detailed forensic analysis” could determine how many Pennsylvania and Arizona citizens had their “civil rights violated.”
Jesus said, "Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled; do not be afraid. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, for to this you were called as members of one body. And be thankful."
11-29-20, This week our Brother from Ohio USA, John Haller reports on world news; that even OANN and Newsmax doesn't report.
- Imagine that in America people are penalized who Biblically counsel someone about their sexuality.
- The increasing boldness and war drum beating from Iran
- Covid-19 vaccines that seem to be everywhere, yet nowhere, at the same time.
- Middle East update
- And of course the corrupt American election?
His patience has been long suffering and longstanding. However, He will not endure the world and its multi-fronted transgressions forever. At some point, the clock will run out and the final sides will be chosen.
Christians... be comforted. It doesn't matter how evil seems to be progressing.
It's nothing compared to the judgment almighty God will bring on a world full of blasphemers, baby killers, mockers and deniers once His bride is safely at His side. While we cannot know the exact time of His call and arrival; we can see the 'season' and when He is at the door. Matthew 24:33; Romans 8:35-37; Matthew 5:10-12

"We're Soldiers of the Lion!"
"...the hour of dawn appears...with the Spirit's mighty sword - Satan's had this planet long enough, get back to outer darkness and leave the saints alone; your weapons cannot prosper, we're commissioned by the Throne!"
The field is white and frosty, the hour is drawing near
The battle lines are being drawn as the hour of dawn appears
In the stillness of the morning, the air is crisp and charged
With the tension of the battle, and the enemy at large
The battlefield is crowded, but the soldiers here are few
Yet the enemy is held at bay, no weapon can get through
Our tiny band of warriors continue in our stand
And as new soldiers join us, we prepare to take the land
We form a line of conquest, like fire our armor shines
With unshakable advancement, we move against the lines
Our swords are drawn and ready, and our numbers grow each day
We'll soon be fully strengthened and we'll blow the troops away!
We're the soldiers of the Lion, we're the army of the Light
The unstoppable battalion that drives away the night
And the Lion is our standard, and we know we cannot die
'Cause the mighty name of Jesus is our sovereign battle Cry!
We move against the forces of the father of all lies
And the enemy is forced to flee before our very eyes
For no demon can resist us or begin to stand against
An army fully armored, no! Hell has no defense!
So look out powers of darkness, your hour has finally come
Our commander's name is Jesus, and we've got you on the run
And we'll charge you and we'll route you
With the Spirit's mighty sword
You've had this planet long enough,
You know you're not our Lord!
So get back to outer darkness, and you leave the saints alone
Your weapons cannot prosper, we're commissioned by the Throne!

What standard of proof for Hunter Biden's incriminating laptop?
11-24-20, HavasuNews -- Republican and conservative journalists and politicos need to avoid a trap when discussing the Hunter Biden laptop issue. The trap might be called the "can't prove untrue" maneuver. On NBC’s “Meet the Press,” moderator Chuck Todd said to former CIA director John Brennan, “So far with this dossier, nothing has yet been proven untrue. How significant is that?”
Brennan responded, “Just because they were unverified does not mean they were not true.”
That was the wrong standard to apply to the dossier, to the journalists’ everlasting discredit. Now, it's the wrong standard to apply to the Hunter Biden emails.
It is not fair to anyone involved to say that the emails must be true because they have not been proven false. Rather, the job is to try to find what evidence supports them and what evidence does not. There has been confirmation from one of the recipients of a 2017 email that it was indeed genuine. Don’t look for any help from the big media organizations that are trying to kill the story. It’s an important job at an important moment. Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner.
A Black Hole Has Taken Hunter Biden's 'Laptop'??
10-29-20, MyMcr.net -- Turns out, Hunter's laptop hard drive contains thousands of emails involving the exact corruption and influence pedaling that President Trump asked the new Ukrainian President Zelensky to investigate.
Everything that President Trump suspected about Joe and Hunter Biden was correct - the Bidens are corrupt.
Hard to believe, but we started 2020 concerned about a hoax of an impeachment of President Trump concerning the Zelensky phone conversation and now who even remembers what impeachment was all about?
For 3+ years, Dems and the mainstream media (CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NY Times, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) tried multiple schemes to remove President Trump. In early 2019, after two years of investigating possible Trump-Russia collusion during the 2016 election, Robert Mueller’s report and found NO COLLUSION whatsoever. (We’ve since learned that Hillary, with Obama and Biden’s approval, initiated the Russia hoax to cover her email crimes.) All attempts failed so now the Dems have implemented another scheme ... [we'll have to steal the election!! But first we have to get rid of Hunter's laptop ...]

Gratitude in Affliction
"Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O LORD, according unto thy word. Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed Thy commandments. Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept Thy word. Thou art good and doest good; teach me Thy statutes. The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep Thy precepts with my whole heart. Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight in Thy law. It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn Thy statutes. The law of Thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver."
Psalm 119:65-72; Micah 2:7
11-28-20, Pastor Charles Stanley -- At Thanksgiving, we typically express gratitude for God's blessings. We should also be grateful for something that doesn't seem like a blessing — such as a trying circumstance you want Him to remove or change. A grateful heart is most precious to God when, humanly speaking, our situations may not warrant giving thanks. By making the following foundational decisions, we can begin to see the value of our adversities and respond with appreciation:
3. Submit to God in the circumstance. Although we may not like the situation, knowing that God "[is] good and does good" (Psalm 119:68) allows us to confidently place our lives under His authority. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
4. Draw from Him the strength to endure. No one has the ability within himself to endure hardships with gratefulness. Only by relying on the Lord can believers go through adversity with an appreciative heart. James 1:3
5. We learn from all experiences. Easy ones and difficult ones. Romans 12:12
Now, think about that circumstance you would like changed, and with a new mindset, offer this prayer to God: "Lord, I accept this situation as coming from You. In faith and trust, I place myself under Your loving authority, and draw from You the strength I need to endure with gratitude." Source

President Trump Should Now Pardon Snowden and Assange
11-11-20, Freedom -- Now that his term in office is maybe over, President Trump can send one parting shot at the national-security establishment and its acolytes as well as to the mainstream press, one that would be based on a pure sense of justice: Issue pardons for Edward Snowden and Julian Assange before and if he will soon leave the White House, preferably now rather than later. [..]
The worst mistake the American people ever made was permitting the federal government to be converted to a national-security state and then falling for its Cold War racket. The best thing the American people could ever do is restore our founding governmental system of a limited-government republic. A good first step in the right direction would be to pardon Edward Snowden and Julian Assange. What a great way for Trump to stick it to the deep state and its supporters in the mainstream press before he departs the presidency.

The Faithful Creator
“Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to Him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.”
1 Peter 4:19
11-27-20, Henry Morris, PhD -- This is the only verse in the New Testament describing the Creator as faithful [1 Peter 4:19] God had a very specific purpose in creating the universe and especially people and He will surely accomplish that great purpose.
We do see other verses that He is faithful that repeatedly stress God’s faithfulness. With respect to the physical universe, “for ever, O LORD, Thy word is settled in heaven. Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: Thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.” (Psalm 119:89-90) As far as His promises to His people are concerned, “know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations” (Deuteronomy 7:9).
The faithful Creator is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ, and He rebukes the compromising church of the last days with these majestic words: “These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God” (Revelation 3:14). Although many professing believers will prove unfaithful to Him, “yet He abideth faithful: He cannot deny Himself.” (2 Timothy 2:13)
The triumphant book of Revelation comes directly “from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness” (Revelation 1:5); and when He finally returns to Earth in power and glory, His very name shall be “called Faithful and True” (Revelation 19:11). He is both Alpha and Omega, and thus all His “words are true and faithful” (Revelation 21:5). Our salvation is sure, therefore, because “God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord” (1 Corinthians 1:9). Source

Why Black Friday Is Called Black Friday

“Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia [modern day Turkey]. I beseech you pilgrims in a foreign land..."
1 Peter 1:1, 2:11
11-26-20, Henry Morris, PhD -- These “strangers” to whom Peter wrote his two epistles were actually “pilgrims.” He used the same Greek word (parepidemos) in 1 Peter 2:11: “Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts.” The word means a resident foreigner, and its only other New Testament usage is in Hebrews 11:13, speaking of the ancient patriarchs who “confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.”
We give honor today to the American “pilgrims,” as they called themselves (thinking of these very verses), who left their homelands in order better to serve God in a foreign land. The “pilgrims” to whom Peter was writing likewise had been “scattered abroad” for their faith (note Acts 8:4).
For that matter, every born-again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ is really just a pilgrim here on Earth, ambassadors for Christ in a foreign land.
“For our conversation is in heaven” (Philippians 3:20). That is, we are citizens of heaven (the Greek word translated “conversation” in this verse is politeuma, meaning “a community” or “citizenship”) and are here only for a time to serve our Lord until He calls us home.
And while we are here, we may endure many trials and sorrows just as did those Massachusetts pilgrims. Nevertheless the Lord supplies our needs—just as He did for the original apostles of the Lord Jesus — and we ought to abound in thanksgiving, as they did.
Thus, everyday Christians all over the world have cause for thanksgiving. Since we are “enriched in every thing” through our Savior, this “causeth through us thanksgiving to God” (2 Corinthians 9:11).
We should be “abounding therein with thanksgiving” (Colossians 2:7). Source
PA Hearing Expert Witness: "The Biden Injection" Vote Dump ...
11-25-20, Mayor Rudy Giuliani asked retired Army Calvary Officer Phil Waldron about the PA vote count for Biden? He said: CLOSE TO 600,000. I THINK OUR FIGURES WERE ABOUT 570 SOME ODD THOUSAND THAT ALL THOSE SPIKES REPRESENTED OVER TIME FOR BIDEN.
And for President Trump? "I THINK IT WAS A LITTLE OVER 3,200." [the crowd laughed]
GIULIANI continued: "Now just just to go back to your original, your original document, this one pager that they all hav,e mail in ballots counted without being observed. Those are the ballots can we’re talking about that when not observed in Allegheny County and In Philadelphia, correct all right 682,770. Now this is the part that is a mystery, mailed ballots sent out 1,823,148 but when you go to the final count of the vote, there are 2,589,242 mail ballots. What happened ….. how do you account for the 700,000 mail ballots that appeared from nowhere?"
Judge Blocks Further Certification of Election in Pennsylvania
11-25-20, EpochTimes -- After the Keystone State of Pennsylvania announced the certification of the presidential election results on Nov. 24, 2020 the plaintiffs filed an emergency request (pdf) just before midnight, arguing that there was no need to act so fast. In 2016, Pennsylvania certified the presidential election on Dec. 12, 2016. Now a Pennsylvania Commonwealth Judge Patricia McCullough ordered state officials to not certify the results of the 2020 election until her court holds a hearing on an election contest on Friday, Nov. 27, 2020. She also blocked the certification of all the other election results saying:
To the extent that there remains any further action to perfect the certification of the results of the 2020 General Election for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States of America, respondents are preliminarily enjoined [prevented] from doing so..." The office of Gov. Wolf didn’t immediately respond to a request by The Epoch Times for comment.
The story of the Pilgrims begins in the early part of the seventeenth century (1600s AD). The Church of England under King James I was persecuting anyone and everyone who did not recognize its absolute civil and spiritual authority. The first Pilgrims were devout Christian rebels. In 1600 England those who challenged the kings ecclesiastical authority and those who believed strongly in freedom of worship were hunted down, imprisoned and sometimes executed for their beliefs.
A group of separatist Christians rejected the Church of England and didn’t want to live under the rule of King James, first fled to Holland and established a community there. After eleven years, about forty of them having heard about this New World Christopher Columbus had discovered, decided to go. They agreed to make a perilous journey to the New World, where they knew they would certainly face hardships, but they did it so they could live and worship God according to the dictates of their own conscience and beliefs.
Led by William Bradford on August 1, 1620 the “Mayflower” ship set sail carrying a total of 102 passengers; now known as Pilgrims. On the journey, Bradford set up an agreement, a contract establishing how they would live once they arrived in the new land. It set forth just and equal laws for all members of the new community, irrespective of their religious beliefs or political beliefs. The revolutionary ideas expressed in the “Mayflower Compact” came from the Holy Bible.
The Pilgrims were a devoutly religious people completely steeped in the lessons of the Old and New Testaments. They looked to the ancient Israelites for their example. And, because of the biblical precedents set forth in Scripture, they never doubted that their experiment would work. They believed in God and that they were in the hands of God. The journey to the New World on the tiny fifty foot sailing ship was long and arduous.
According to Bradford’s detailed journal, there was disease, seasickness and it was wet. It was the opposite of anything you think of today as a cruise today on the open ocean. When they landed in New England in November 1620 AD it was a cold, barren, desolate wilderness. There was no shelter; no inns where they could refresh themselves - there was nothing.
The sacrifice they made for freedom was just beginning. During the first winter, half the Pilgrims — including Bradford’s own wife — died of starvation, sickness or exposure. When spring finally came by that time, they had met the indigenous people - the Indians who did indeed teach them how to plant corn and other ways to sustain themselves. This is important to understand because this is where modern American history lessons often end.
Thanksgiving is actually explained in some textbooks as a holiday for which the Pilgrims gave thanks to the Indians for saving their lives, rather than what it really was. They ultimately gave thanks for to God for sending the Indians, for ending the drought and that so many did survive.
They actually had to enter into contracts with their merchant-sponsors in London, because they had no money on their own. The needed sponsors. The merchants in London were making an investment, and as such, the Pilgrims agreed that everything they produced to go into a common store, or bank, common account, and each member of the community was entitled to one common share in this bank. Out of this, the merchants would be repaid until they were paid off.
All of the land they cleared and the houses they built belong to the community as well. Everything belonged to everybody and everybody had one share in it. It was 'Socialism.' They were going to distribute it equally. Considered the epitome of fairness, sharing the hardship burdens and everything.. Nobody owned anything; it was a commune. Bradford, became the governor of the colony, recognizing that it wasn’t working. It “was as costly and destructive…” His own journals chronicle the reasons it didn’t work: “...got rid of the whole commune structure and assigned a plot of land to each family to work and manage, and whatever they made, however much they made was theirs. They could sell it, they could share it, they could keep it, whatever they wanted to do."
What really happened is they turned loose the power of a free market after enduring months and months of hardship — first on the Mayflower and then getting settled and then the failure of the commune. There was no incentive for anybody to do anything. And as is human nature, some of the Pilgrims were lazy and others worked hard. It didn’t matter because even the people that weren’t very industrious got the same as everyone else. Bradford explained: "The most creative and industrious people had no incentive to work any harder than anyone else… [W]hile most of the rest of the world has been experimenting with socialism for well over a hundred years — trying to refine it, perfect it, and re-invent it — the Pilgrims decided early on.” He decided, “to scrap it permanently.” because it brought out the worst in human nature, it emphasized laziness, it created resentment.
Resentment sprang up on both sides. So Bradford wrote about this. “‘For this community [so far as it was] was found to breed much confusion and discontent, and retard much employment that would have been to their benefit and comfort.
“For young men that were most able and fit for labor and service did repine that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men’s wives and children without any recompense,'” without any payment, “‘that was thought injustice.’
Why should you work for other people when you can’t work for yourself? What’s the point? … The Pilgrims found that people could not be expected to do their best work without incentive.
“So what did Bradford’s community try next? They unharnessed the power of good old free enterprise by invoking the undergirding capitalistic principle of private property. Every family was assigned its own plot of land to work and permitted to market its own crops and products. And what was the result? ‘This had very good success,’ wrote Bradford, ‘for it made all hands [everybody] industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been.’ …
“Is it possible that supply-side economics could have existed before the 1980s. … In no time, the Pilgrims found they had more food than they could eat themselves. Now, this is where it gets really good, folks, if you’re laboring under the misconception that I was, as I was taught in school. So they set up trading posts and exchanged goods with the Indians. The profits allowed them to pay off their debts to the merchants in London.
“And the success and prosperity of the Plymouth settlement attracted more Europeans and began what came to be known as the ‘Great Puritan Migration.'” The word of the success of the free enterprise Plymouth Colony spread like wildfire and that began the great migration. Everybody wanted a part of it. There was no mass slaughtering of the Indians. There was no wiping out of the indigenous people, and eventually — in William Bradford’s own journal — unleashing the industriousness of all hands ended up producing more than they could ever need themselves.
So trading post began selling and exchanging things with the Indians — and the Indians, by the way, were very helpful. Puritan kids had relationships with the children of the Native Americans that they found. This killing the indigenous people stuff, they’re talking about much, much, much, much later. It has nothing to do with the first thanksgiving.

People's Various Reactions to Covid Virus 'Scare'
Government's Dictates and Restrictions
"Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear Him."
11-24-20, Some Christians and those informed of the risks of the current Covid virus freely go about our normal activities, trusting God to take care of us and that even the CDC reports the risk of death is low.
We express opposition to government dictates to close businesses, wear masks, ban gatherings and prohibit church attendance and singing!
Now we hear there may be a mandated vaccination dictate or we will not be permitted to buy or sell or travel?? Hmm … sounds like mark of the beast? Revelation 13:17 We must not fear what the government can do to us. Jesus said:
"Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." Matthew 10:28
Past Words of Wisdom from the 16th Century Priest Martin Luther during 'Black Plague'
In August of 1527 the plague struck Wittenberg Germany causing many to flee in fear for their lives. Christian minister Martin Luther and his pregnant wife Katharina, remained in their beloved city in order to care for and treat the infected. Despite the calls for him and his family to also leave Wittenberg, Luther’s mind was set on helping the infected. He came to the conclusion that it was not inherently wrong for one to so value their life that they did not remain, but only so long as the sick had someone of greater faith than they to care for them. He balanced this position with the conviction that this one of greater faith ought not condemn the one of weaker faith who fled. Matthew 25:41–46 Martin did not die from the plague ... he passed to Jesus in 1546. His biography here
11-23-20, Independent.co.uk -- Covid virus ... Heiko Maas says invoking Sophie Scholl as a parallel to current government Covid restrictions mocks iconic dissident's courage. Several people protesting coronavirus restrictions in Germany are depicting themselves as victims of government persecution. Some are even wearing Stars of David symbols that the Nazis forced Jews to wear during the Third Reich before they killed them.

In 353 U.S. Counties, 1.8 Million More Voted than legally registered to vote
11-9-20, DailyWire -- Recently a report from Judicial Watch's [JW] Tom Fitton indicates that among 353 U.S. counties, 1.8 million more voters are been registered than eligible voting-age citizens. JW revealed the results of their 2020 study showing that more than 100% of registered voters ... VOTED! Tom reported: “The new study shows 1.8 million excess, or ‘ghost’ voters in 353 counties across 29 states. The data highlights the recklessness of mailing blindly ballots and ballot applications to voter registration lists. Dirty voting rolls can mean dirty elections.” The eight states where state-wide registration rates exceeded 100% included Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Vermont. The most recent registration data posted online by the states themselves. This data was then compared to the Census Bureau’s most recent five-year population estimates. In June 2019, Los Angeles County issued notices to as many as 1.5 million inactive voters after JW had reached a settlement agreement with the county.
There is Undeniable Mathematical Evidence the Election is a Fraud
11-5-20, RedElephants -- President Trump's campaign called for multiple lawsuits on the grounds that the ongoing vote count would result in tallying illegally cast ballots. The lawsuits are an aggressive effort to highlight anomalies, statistical impossibilities, or other problems that could affect vote counts before a final presidential winner is declared.
In Wisconsin, voter turnout matched the record high of 2004 of 74%. [Ridiculous!]
The Wisconsin Elections Commission uses the estimated voting age population as the denominator when calculating statewide voter turnout numbers. Turnout was 67 percent in 2016; 70 percent in 2012; 69 percent in 2008. Apparently Joe Biden smashed Barack Obama’s 2008 turnout in most places in the country. Some statistically savvy observers noticed other mathematical flaws, as random numbers in statistics should follow a pattern in their distribution. If the numbers are falsified, it is easy to detect.

Patriotic Americans Are Too Timid
Democrats Have Declared War on America
Remember What Jesus Did With the Money Changers??
Matthew 21:12-13; Revelation 19:11
11-23-20, David Horowitz, Front Page* -- By now it should be obvious - even to conservatives - that we are in a war. It is a conflict that began nearly fifty years ago when the street revolutionaries of the Sixties joined the Democrat Party. Their immediate goal was to help the Communist enemy win the war in Vietnam, but they stayed to expand their influence in the Democrat Party and create the radical force that confronts us today. The war that today’s Democrats are engaged in reflects the values and methods of those radicals. It is a war against us - against individual freedom, against America’s constitutional order, and against the capitalist engine of our prosperity.
Democrat radicals know what they want and where they are going. As a result, they are tactically and organizationally years ahead of patriotic Americans who are only beginning to realize they are in a war. The Democrats’ plan to steal the 2020 election was hatched many years ago when Democrats launched their first attacks on Voter I.D.s, and then every effort to secure the integrity of the electoral system. Those attacks metastasized into an all-out assault on Election Day itself with early- and late-voting grace periods, and a flood of 92 million mail-in ballots, hundreds of thousands of which were delivered in the middle of the night to be counted behind the backs of Republican observers after Election Day had passed.
The result of these efforts is that Election Day no longer really exists as a day when the votes are cast and counted. This is a fact that offers generous opportunities for the election saboteurs to do their work. Those saboteurs’ opportunities were greatly enhanced this year with the installation in =>
<= battle ground states of voting machines specifically designed to calculate how many votes were required to steal an election and then to switch ballots already cast and deliver them to the chosen party. Mail-in ballots were indispensable to the realization of this plan.
I will not dwell at length on the years it took the Republican Party, and American patriots, to recognize what the Democrat Party had become or the threat it posed to our country as an enemy within. Suffice it to say that Republicans can still be heard referring to Democrats as “liberals” when it is obvious even to them that there is nothing liberal about their principles or methods. They are vindictive bigots who are actively destroying the First Amendment in our universities, on the Internet and in our once but no longer free press. Suffice it to note that while Democrats accuse Republicans including the President of being racists and traitors, the response of Republican leaders is this: “Oh, the Democrats are just playing politics.”
This is not “playing” people. It is war. They are trying to kill us politically, and we need to respond accordingly, to fight fire with fire. Today’s Democrat Party is a party of character assassins and racists. Republicans know this but are reluctant to say it. That is how a pathological liar and corrupt political whore like Joe Biden can accuse the choice of 73 million Americans of being a white supremacist and also murdering 220,000 corona virus patients. That’s why Biden and his gunslingers can do so with no consequences – without so much as a wrist slap – from “moderates” and independents, who know better. The Democrats’ ability to intimidate well-meaning Americans is that great.
Is this too blanket a condemnation? Where, then, is the Democrat who was outraged by the four-year Russia collusion hoax and the failed coup and impeachment attempts – all of which accused the president, without a shred of evidence, of treason? Where was the Democrat who dissented from the public lynching of an exemplary public servant, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, over an incident that never happened 37 years ago at a time when he was a high school kid? Where is the Democrat who has condemned the violent street criminals of Antifa and Black Lives Matter who got away with conducting the most destructive civic insurrection in American history, orchestrating mayhem and disrespect for the law that led to the murders of scores of people who happen to have been mainly black?
What follows is a basic vocabulary for understanding the political war that has engulfed us. When it is used by enough Americans who love their country, it will cancel the surreal universe that Democrats’ lies have imposed on us, and the war will be on its way to being won.
Democrats are not democrats; they are totalitarians. They have declared war on the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, the Electoral College, the Senate, the Supreme Court, the election system, and the idea of civil order. They have called for the Republican President of the United States to be de-platformed and jailed. Their obvious goal is a one-party state that criminalizes dissent. To them, support for such basic necessities as borders and law enforcement are racist. If you oppose their efforts to legalize infanticide, they will condemn you as enemies of women, and if you make videos of their confessions to selling body parts of murdered infants, they will - like Kamala Harris - throw you in jail.
Progressives are not progressive; they are reactionaries. They are out to abolish liberal value systems and create a status hierarchy where race, gender, and sexual orientation define and confine you to an unalterable place in their new social order. If you are white or male or heterosexual or religious – Justice Kavanaugh was all four - you are guilty before the fact.
But if you are a member of a designated (but increasingly imaginary) “victim” group you are innocent even when the facts show you are guilty - like the reprehensible female who lied to Congress in a calculated attempt to destroy Kavanaugh’s life and career. If you are a member of a “victim” group you have an unlimited license to persecute others. Thus, the LGBTQ lobby is currently behind a nation-wide crusade to strip Christians of their First Amendment rights and criminalize their religion. They use their victim status to leverage their hate of people who don’t embrace their agendas, and deploy it to crush them – and only Republicans seem to care.
Identity politics is a pure form of racism, yet Trump is the only Republican I’m aware of who has had the political spine to call a Democrat a racist. Identity “wokism” is a totalitarian politics because it encompasses every aspect of life, down to the pronouns one is ordered to use. The progressive police state will leave no space free.
Racists and aspiring totalitarians are what Democrats have become. The only moral principle they are guided by is the old Bolshevik saw, “the ends justify the means.” They will say anything however false and condone anything, however criminal, which advances their goal of maximum power.
Since race is the principal weapon wielded by Democrats, this is most evident in their claim that there is “systemic racism” in America, which needs to be rooted out even if it means destroying the very foundations of law and order. When two Republican canvassers refused to certify the election result in Detroit – a city once the richest in America but now mainly black and poor thanks to fifty-nine years of misrule by Democrats – they were accused of “systemic racism.” This charge and the accompanying threats by the Democrat mob were so intimidating the two withdrew their objections. But if there was in fact election fraud in Detroit, to object to it is not by any stretch of the imagination “systemic racism.” To believe otherwise is to believe that black people, due to their skin color, are incapable of committing election fraud. How racist is that?
“Systemic racism” is an assertion made reflexively by Democrats that is never accompanied by evidence. For good reason. Systemic racism has been outlawed in America since the Civil Rights Act of 1964. If there were actual instances of systemic racism in 2020, there would be lawsuits – plenty of them. Even making the racist assumption, which the Identity Politics crowd does make, that all white people are white supremacists by dint of their skin color, there are tens of thousands of black lawyers, prosecutors, district attorneys, attorneys general, and elected officials who would be filing lawsuits over a practice that is illegal. You never hear of massive lawsuits over systemic racism, because “systemic racism” is a myth. The myth lives because it is an indispensable weapon wielded by Democrats to advance their anti-democratic agendas and quests for power.
The only reason Democrats are able to do this so successfully – even going so far as to justify the arson, looting and general destruction in more than 600 American cities this summer – is because Republicans, and conservatives generally, are too timid or cowardly to confront them. This war will continue until patriotic Americans summon the courage to call Democrats the racists, liars, character assassins and aspiring totalitarians that they actually are. And to do so in so many words. Blowback works. Source
AOC, others pushing for apparent blacklist of people who support President Trump...
11-9-20, FoxNews -- Several leftist Democrats led by NY Congresswoman Alexandria Cortez are pushing for a blacklist of people who worked with and support President Trump ... they're calling it a A "Trump Accountability Project" intended to hold "responsible" those who helped him. In an apparent response to criticism, she tweeted: "Lol at the 'party of personal responsibility' being upset at the idea of being responsible for their behavior over last four years." On 11/6/20 she tweeted: "Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future? I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future."
AOC & Co. target Trump supporters, this one says 'come get me'
11-14-20, BostonHerald -- Anti Trump zealots are out to punish people who supported President Trump. Robert Reich, a leftist professor who once ran for governor of Massachusetts — and thankfully lost — and served in the Clinton administration, wants to create a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to ”erase Trump’s lies” and expose those who “enabled” them.
A ringleader in all of this is ex New York bartender now Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Cortez [aka AOC] who has urged her supporters to create an archive of "Trump sycophants" and their social media posts for future reference, all of whom would be dragged before Reich’s commission.
Almighty God Has a List ...
"Know therefore that the LORD thy God, He is the faithful God, Who keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love Him and keep His commandments to a thousand generations." vs 13-14 God said: "Son of man, when the land sinneth against Me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out Mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it."
Deuteronomy 7:9; Ezekiel 14:13
11-22-20, This week Brother John Haller in Ohio at Fellowship Bible Chapel speaks about our post-truth, Covid virus - based society. Currently, we're at the point where many of those elitist who consider patriotic Americans "the unwashed masses" can make declaration ... and we heard and saw them say it ... yet they with the innocence of a young child report ... 'I didn't say that!' They either actually believe it themselves, or hope that if they lie to you often enough, you'll believe it.
John takes a look at the potential for an incoming Biden administration. It's being fueled by the radical progressives who are making lists of every person who would speak out against their Socialist, leftist, commie agenda and how they plan to target them with relentless verbal, physical and cyber-abuses.
Judgment may be coming to the USA.
Many Christians don't accept that a God of love destroys nations when they become decadent, depraved and degenerate.
Consider His word when He is angry, the Earth trembles; the nations cannot endure His wrath. (Jeremiah 10:10) God said, ‘I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the Lord, do all these things.’ ” (Isaiah 45:7) God said: "I send a pestilence into that land, and pour out My fury upon it in blood, to cut off from it man and beast: Though Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, as I live they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness."

God of the Mountain
by Lynda Randle
Life is easy, when you're up on the mountain
And you've got peace of mind, like you've never known
But things change, when you're down in the valley
Don't lose faith, for your never alone.
For the God on the mountain, is still God in the valley
When things go wrong, He'll make them right
And the God of the good times, is still God in the bad times
The God of the day, is still God in the night.
We talk of faith way up on the mountain
But talk comes easy, when life's at its best
Now its down in the valleys, trials and temptations
That's where your faith is really put to the test.
For the God on the mountain, is still God in the valley,
When things go wrong, he'll make them right
And the God of the good times, is still God in the bad times
The God of the day, is still God in the night
The God of the day, is still God in the night.
From Ruling Class to Oligarchy*
"You peons shut up and obey!"
11-20-20, ** -- By its campaign and conduct of the 2020 election, the ruling class in America has ceased pretending to be part of a constitutional republic. By treating fellow Americans as inferiors through word and deed, its members renounced their common citizenship with us. Eschewing persuasion, they set about compelling obedience to an openly manipulated election. Henceforth, they must rule or ruin as the oligarchy they have become. This happened as government’s stated reason took upon itself the tasks of eliminating poverty and harmonizing the races, and as it controlled ever greater shares of the national income.
Increasingly, their powers were based on claims of expertise coming from the universities. These underwent a fourfold increase in size (from 9 percent of Americans with four-year degrees in 1965 to 36 percent in 2015). Their connection with government conferred both wealth and additional prestige. By the beginning of the Obama Administration in 2009, … the American country class’ budding resistance spurred the ruling class further to become conscious of itself, to increase its own privileges, its cohesion, and above all its contempt for and demands on those below them. That’s why the 2016 presidential election revealed a substantial anti-ruling class majority among Americans electing NY businessman Donald John Trump and may prove to have been the last more-or-less bona fide free election in America’s history.
In short, during the Obama years the ruling class was becoming an oligarchy that ruled by exercising the powers of government and of incumbency in corporations as well as all manner of social institutions. Private institutions, allied with government and inspired by government-supported universities, increasingly exercised arbitrary powers. Donald Trump’s surprising victory proved to be the catalyst for this oligarchy to articulate itself into something that was able to transcend our constitutional republic altogether, to dispense with and even to penalize the habits and institutions that had held it together. Ours is now a socio-political system wholly different from that constitutional republic of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. It is mandating a way of life that few in America could have imagined.
It had been clear to the ruling Democrat class that Donald Trump was dangerous only because he represented his supporters - the ‘irredeemable deplorables.’ They attempted to dispirit and discredit them in their own and others’ eyes. Demonizing Trump was the means by which they sought to do this. [It didn’t work as it only enflamed freedom loving patriotic Americans they called ‘irredeemable deplorables.’-Ed.]
When the Covid hit, Americans didn’t realize how thoroughly their ruling class had already jelled into an oligarchy with the intention above all to crush them. Not comprehending how assuredly it would not waste this opportunity to do so. President Trump was tragically led astray and his misplaced faith in the objectivity of “the experts,” personified by Dr. Anthony Fauci, conservatives were persuaded to respond to an epidemic with an infection/fatality rate comparable to the average flu as if it were the plague. Thus, by following the ignorant promise of safety through masks, etc. did conservatives at first agree to suspend face-to-face relationships. They suffered to disarticulate social life even more than economic life, to put aside one’s friends and God. They agreed to restrict their understanding of things to what the mass media would allow them to hear. They did all of this even as evidence mounted that the “experts” were nothing but agents of the oligarchy [and their fears were unfounded as more than 95% of all Covid victims survive.-Ed.]
On election night, Nov 3, 2020 – as predicted – corrupt election officials in places controlled by the Left’s ruling class stopped counting until it was clear how many ballots it would take for President Trump to be defeated. The requisite number came, filled out by - no one knows who. And then the call came from all of society’s commanding heights [the Democrat’s media]: Trump’s defeat had been declared. It wasn’t declared by the Constitutional authorities designated to decide who wins and loses. However, the increased instances of fraud President Trump’s campaign lawyers investigated and found; the louder and from more sources the judgment was declared that there was nothing to investigate. It had been decided.

Cuomo Crackdown: Only 10 People Allowed In Home; Former Lt ...
11-12-20, Daily Wire – According to Fox News Betsy McCaughey, the former lieutenant governor of New York, ripped into the Gov Cuomo as a “petty tyrant” over the new restrictions - she said: "Just defy this ridiculous governor. Defy his petty, despotic edicts. He has no authority to do this, and [in fact], if the New York state legislature were doing its job, it would've stepped in many months ago to limit in duration and scope the so-called emergency powers of this governor the way many others states have..."
Tyrants at all levels of government use shutdowns to silence political opponents ...
8-26-20, WashingtonTimes – America cannot rebound from Covid virus without restoring freedom of assembly! USA tyrants on all levels of government continue to use shutdowns to silence their political opponents. When we imagine tyranny, we often think of some cruel, contemptuous autocrat in a building of some kind far, far away. The image that comes to mind is some Kremlin bureaucrat, grinning in his carpeted office as he prepares to erase the next political pariah from the following day’s Pravda. Not some USA bureaucrat telling Americans to stay in their homes and wear a mask!
Police Have Started Revolting Against Draconian Covid Edicts...
4-22-20, The Federalist -- Police chiefs from Texas to Washington are standing up against draconian orders from local leaders demanding strict adherence to extreme Covid edicts. The Houston Police Officers’ Union recently declared its members would not enforce the local County Judge Lina Hidalgo’s ruling of mandatory for any individual over the age of 10 to wear a mask in public.
In Michigan, four sheriffs recently announced their refusal to enforce Dem Gov. Whitmer’s lockdown orders she deemed it illegal for Michiganders to travel “between residences” or buy garden seeds.
