Pete Buttigieg's unfinished business in South Bend could derail his progress to the Oval
12-22-19, NBCNews -- Lingering and sometimes raw unhappiness and frustration in South Bend, Indiana where black people make up about a quarter of the population, with 32 percent living in poverty - a decline from about 50 percent from before Democrat Pete Buttigieg took office in 2011 - exiting after 8 years in 2019.
His bad performance in Indiana threatens to upend Mayor Pete's efforts to court African Americans, as he faces enormous hurdles in winning their crucial support. Interviews with So Bend's black leaders reveal clear anger on multiple fronts about their outgoing mayor. His signature initiatives fell woefully short and that he never attempted locally what he's now proposing on to do for the nation as president.
Apostle Paul’s Remarkable Statement:
If the dead rise not; we are most miserable.
“If Christ be preached that He rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? If there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: and if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain and your faith is also vain. Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that He raised up Christ: whom He raised not up, if so then the dead rise not. For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished; if in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.”
12-23-19, * -- The fact that Christ arose from death is super important to all born again believers. The Apostle Paul makes a crucial statement [1 Cor 15:12-19] as He is establishing facts regarding resurrection and redemption of our bodies using the resurrection of HIS own physical body as proof. Paul said that being a Christian is a pitiful existence if our hope in Christ does not assure us of a life beyond this earthly one. [Hebrews 9:27-28]
The fact that the Lord Jesus Christ existed is the most documented historical fact in human history. Authors, both secular and sacred, acknowledge He lived, was born in Bethlehem and lived in Nazareth, though opinions vary on who He was. He is the most polarizing figure in human history. As Christians, we have more than historical facts of Jesus first appearing.
- Our citizenship is in Heaven - Philippians 3:20-21, Christ's resurrection from the dead and ascension into heaven was not going to be limited to just Him. He was the firstborn, meaning the first to rise from the dead and remain alive forevermore. [Jesus also brought Lazarus from death before Jesus' crucifixion - John 11:1–44.]
- We are predestined - Romans 8:29-30, 2 "For those God foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers. And those He predestined, He also called; those He called, He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified."
- Many believers have already passed [fallen asleep]; but those who are alive and remain when Jesus, as a conquering King, returns - will bypass death and be instantly conformed into the image of Christ and thus return with Him. The Lord will appear and meet them/us in the air with the bodily resurrected saints who had died. Both groups will be made immortal and incorruptible in a moment and twinkling of an eye. Revelation 19:11; 1 Corinthians 15:52-53; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

Bible Truths Proven: Israel Ritual Baths Discovered
Thanks to Heavy Rains: Ritual Baths for Temple now Fully Functional for First Time in 2,000 Years
Almighty God said to ancient Jews: "Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the LORD empty"
1-13-20, Excavation and archaeology are a blessing to believers proving the truth of the Holy Bible. Thousands of years ago, Jews would travel from all over Israel three times a year to visit the Holy Temple in Jerusalem to worship God, as the Bible commands in Deuteronomy 16:16:
- Pesach [aka Passover] Exodus 23:15; Luke 22:15; 1 Corinthians 5:7
- Shavuot [aka Pentecost] — all males shall appear before Hashem your God in the place that He will choose. Also called "The Feast of Weeks" to travel to Jerusalem (Exodus 23:14–17; 34:22–23; Deuteronomy 16:16). This important feast gets its name from the fact that it starts seven full weeks, or exactly 50 days, after the Feast of Firstfruits. Since it takes place exactly 50 days after the previous feast, this feast is also known as “Pentecost” (Acts 2:1), which means “fifty.” [Also 50 days after the resurrection of Messiah the Lord Jesus Christ. Acts 2:1-4]
- Sukkot [aka Tabernacles] As a feast instituted by God, Sukkot was never forgotten. It was celebrated in the time of Solomon (2 Chronicles 8:13). In fact, it was during Sukkot that Solomon’s temple was dedicated (1 Kings 8:2). It was observed during Hezekiah's time (2 Chronicles 31:3; Deuteronomy16:16), and after the return from exile (Ezra 3:4; Zechariah 14:16,18-19).
The ancient mikvah was rediscovered just 35 years ago. Although it is currently under the control of the military and has not yet been completely restored, Mr. Brezis spoke excitedly about the Biblical significance of the mikvah and the area surrounding it. He knows it has the potential to captivate Bible-based Jews and Christian alike as he's
witnessed visitors crying at the site, as they come to understand its Biblical significance.
Visitors imagine an ancient time that the area around the mikvah was crowded with thousands of pilgrims together it often brings them to tears.
It is still possible today to see Jerusalem from the nearby Jewish community of Neve Daniel. Brezis connected this location to Avraham’s vision of Jerusalem on his journey to fulfill God’s command to sacrifice his son Yitzchak (Isaac). On the third day Avraham looked up and saw the place from afar. Genesis 22:4
Since the mikvah hasn’t yet been fully restored, the rainwater-filled pools may only last a few weeks, during Israel’s rainy season. Nevertheless, it’s amazing to see this place, even without the water. More here
Gaza Green houses looted - The Abomination of the Desolation
10-1-15, Zionism-Israel.com -- When Israel left the Gaza Strip one of the most telling symbol of the fiasco that Gaza is becoming, followed in short order by the explosive Islamic terror group Hamas parade that resulted in about 20 deaths.
The greenhouses were a symbol of ingenuity and hope for the future of Gaza was looted and destroyed. The Muslim aka Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia implored Palestinians to leave the structures intact. “These greenhouses are for the Palestinian people. We don’t want anyone to touch or harm anything that can be useful for our people.”
Everyone who hoped for the best for the future of the Palestinian people hoped to see in Gaza the beginnings of Palestinian national construction, akin to the Jewish construction that characterizes the Jewish re-settlement. The reality is a bitter disappointment, worse than the worst as Muslim Arab world want to save the Palestinians from chaos and self-destruction, but they only hate and try to destroy the Jewish state of Israel by launching rockets and digging terror tunnels. Living on the largess of generous nations.
Palestinians looted dozens of greenhouses, walking off with irrigation hoses, water pumps and plastic sheeting in a blow to fledgling efforts to reconstruct the Gaza Strip. More here from NBC
Prophetic Truth & Consequences
"To take a spoil, and to take a prey.v1 Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, And do not be still, O God! For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; And those who hate You have lifted up their head. They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, "Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more." For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You: The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab and the Hagrites; Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assyria also has joined with them; They have helped the children of Lot."
In scripture the Islamic Nations are named one by one; those who intend to annihilate the Jewish nation of Israel. And the nation of Iran most vocal with their Gen Salami in 2014 proclaiming they have troops in Lebanon ready to attack Israel; and Turkey's Erdogan not far behind. These current Iranian horrors are no surprise.
1-13-20, * -- The foreign policy of the immediate past US president [Obama] engineered a destabilization in the Middle East that has resulted in great suffering of humankind as well as advancing the march of end time prophecy. Strategically, that president locked in an irreversible pathway that accelerated world events toward the Ezekiel 38 prophecy where Magog, Meshach and Tubal (Turkey) leads Persia (Iran), Ethiopia (Sudan) and Libya against Israel in the end of times: "To take a spoil, and to take a prey (Ezekiel 38:12)."
Think about the truth in Obama's 2011 Arab Spring, assassinating Libya's head of state, Muammar Gadhafi, promoting the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign policy partner, and sending Iran billions of dollars in cash. Also think about the consequences.
Obama also bolstered Iran's terror-sponsoring activities as well as its nuclear ambitions. On November 25, 2013, his White House announced that it was entering into a deal with Iran to "stop" its nuclear program. The pact was ratified by the Senate in September 2015, empowering the president to complete a deal with Iran that would allow the terrorist state of Iran to build a nuclear bomb over the next ten years and pay them over $300 billion to do it; some $1.8 billion in cash arrived in Tehran on a pallet. Iran then ignored the deal, advanced its nuclear development, attacked oil tankers, embassies, killed Americans in Iraq, and fomented terrorism around the world.
As current President Donald Trump stated on January 8, 2020 and it is true based on events reported during the previous presidency: "Iran's hostilities substantially increased after the foolish Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2013, and they were given $150 billion, not to mention $1.8 billion in cash. Instead of saying "thank you" to the United States, they chanted "death to America."
In fact, they chanted "death to America" the day the agreement was signed. Then, Iran went on a terror spree, funded by the money from the deal, and created hell in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, and Iraq." These are the true consequences of bad leadership. These events, set in motion by the previous president, are irreversible and will have even deeper prophetic consequences in the years ahead. The prophecy clock advances each day because of them.

Iran's General Qassem Soleimani Responsible for American Deaths
1-2-20, Breitbart -- The U.S. Dept of Defense claimed Thursday, 1-2-20 evening that Iran’s General Qassem Soleimani, was killed in a U.S. airstrike in Baghdad, Iraq, “he was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans.” It's true.
Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Al-Quds Force leader Qassem Soleimani directed Iranian military operations abroad, including terror. Reportedly he directed rocket attacks last week that on Dec 27, 2019 killing American civilian contractor in Iraq - 33-year old Nawres Waleed Hamid. Last year, President Donald Trump designated the IRGC as a terrorist organization — an acknowledgment of reality.
Reported in a 2013 profile of Solemani by the anti-Trump New Yorker: John Maguire, a former C.I.A. officer in Iraq said: “Soleimani is the single most powerful operative in the Middle East today and no one’s ever heard of him.” In 2011, the Obama administration sanctioned Soleimani for his role in plotting a foiled terror attack in a Washington, D.C. restaurant with the aim of assassinating the Saudi ambassador to the U.S.
Suleimani took command of Iran's Quds Force fifteen years ago, and in that time he has sought to reshape the Middle East in Iran’s favor, working as a power broker and as a military force: assassinating rivals, arming allies, and, for most of a decade, directing a network of militant groups that killed hundreds of Americans in Iraq.
The U.S. Dept of the Treasury [under Obama] sanctioned Suleimani for his role in supporting the Assad regime of Syria, and for abetting terrorism. And yet he has remained mostly invisible to the outside world, even as he runs agents and directs operations. More here
Now the deluded leftist media and Democrats are wringing their hands that Soleimani was killed. These people are nuts!
There's Only One Group Mourning Soleimani's Death
1-7-20, Nikki Haley, "Soleimani's death was a long time coming. You don’t see anyone standing up for Iran. You’re not hearing any of the Gulf members, you’re not hearing China, you’re not hearing Russia. The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership and Democrat Presidential candidates.” It's disgusting.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi [D-CA] and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer [D-NY] both accused President Trump of circumventing constitutional guidelines to take out Soleimani, which she described as "a provocative and disproportionate military airstrike."
Pelosi took the opportunity to introduce her War Powers Resolution "to limit the President's military actions regarding Iran." Although there was no complaints when Obama reportedly took out Bin Laden without Congressional approval. Two faced hypocrites!
‘Opposite of Benghazi’: Obama’s weak response motivated Trump to strike Iran's Gen Soleimani
1-12-20, WashTimes -- Pres Trump calls his military clash with Iran over a besieged U.S. embassy in Iraq “the opposite of Benghazi” & people close to him say it’s impossible to overstate how deeply the president was influenced by the fatal 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. facilities in Libya. Pres Obama’s weak response with no response for 13 hours causing Ambassador Stephens and 3 other Americans to be killed.
So when Iran-backed forces attacked the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and set fires to the walls of the compound, Pres Trump quickly ordered a contingent of Marines to defend the complex. Then he ordered a drone strike in Baghdad that killed Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, a designated terrorist believed to have plotted the embassy assault and to have been planning more attacks on Americans. More here
Iran does have a role to play in the end times. History of Iran and its neighborhood, as it relates to biblical history:
The prophet Jeremiah prophesied that Elam, a nation east of Babylon, west of Persia and south of Media would be conquered and then rise to power again. True to that prophecy, Babylon conquered Elam in 596 BC. However, then Persia, under Cyrus the Great, took control of that area, and the Elamites and Medes became part of the Persian Empire. The Medo-Persian Empire ascended to power and conquered Babylon in 539 BC, fulfilling the prophecy of Isaiah 21:2. This happened during the time of Daniel; in fact, Daniel later resided “in the province of Elam” in Persia. Persia is the setting for the book of Esther and the first part of Nehemiah... More here
John Haller reports ...
1-12-20, America, Israel and Missiles, oh my! Isaiah 2:3-4
Unless you've been living under a rock, or cowering in your "safe space" you cannot help but realize that the convergence of events has taken a major adreneline shot in the arm over the past week. With the precision strike on one of the most notorious Iranian generals in history [Soleimani], eventually relegating what was left of him to room temperature, there has been a variety of responses.
While the everyday Iranian people are celebrating his demise, the regime, and their allies in the US mainstream media, are lamenting his death in surreal tributes and accolades.
Unlike the Bin Laden death, which the American media celebrated and lauded praise on Obama...
... the tone of this death has taken on a regretful, remorseful apology tour with unprecedented worship of this violent General.
It is a despicable display of sympathy for one of the world's worst humans, while the vitriol and rhetoric that should have been directed the brutal Iranian regime ... it was redirected toward President Trump who authorized the strike. It is a surreal world we live in...and who knows where this is going next. What we do know, and are assured of, is that our Lord is in full control of the affairs of men, and He will not leave or forsake us.
Don't fret and worry...while John Haller will share his critical analysis of the current state of the world, do not despair. These are the things that must happen before we see the Lord Jesus' arrive in glory to judge the earth and her people for the transgressions they commit. Jeremiah 31:31-34
'Worship the King!'
O worship the King,
all glorious above!
O gratefully sing
His power and His love!
Our shield and defender,
the Ancient of Days,
pavilioned in splendor,
and girded with praise.
O tell of His might!
O sing of His grace!
Whose robe is the light,
whose canopy space.
His chariots of wrath
the deep thunderclouds form,
and dark is His path
on the wings of the storm.
The earth, with its store
of wonders untold,
Almighty, Thy power
hath founded of old,
hath ‘stablished it fast
by a changeless decree,
and round it hath cast,
like a mantle, the sea.
Thy bountiful care,
what tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air;
it shines in the light;
it streams from the hills,
it descends to the plain,
and sweetly distills
in the dew and the rain.
Frail children of dust,
and feeble and frail,
in Thee do we trust,
nor find Thee to fail;
Thy mercies, how tender!
How firm to the end!
Our Maker, Defender,
Redeemer, and Friend!
O measureless Might,
while angels delight
to worship Thee above,
the humbler creation,
though feeble their lays,
with true adoration
shall all sing Thy praise.

10-23-19, Fox News -- The Democrat Party has painted itself into a corner promising the American people that they have evidence showing that President Trump has committed multiple impeachable offenses. However, the witnesses they're attempting to use have no first-hand information about the actions that the Democrats cite for the grounds for impeachment. Most of the evidence that these witnesses offer are their own feelings and opinions on hearsay information that they heard through office gossip. The American people must demand an end to the tomfoolery that has consumed those we entrust with our country.
Heaven: Will We Recognize Our Loved Ones?
“And it came to pass, that the beggar Lazarus died and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died and was buried; in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments seeth Abraham afar off and Lazarus in his bosom.” V12 “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”
1-11-20, Almighty God’s word, the Holy Bible gives us a glimmer of understanding of what heaven will be like; we know the struggle of sin will be over; “nothing unclean will ever enter it, only those who are written in the Lamb’s book of life.” (Revelation 21:27) We also know that people in heaven have feelings joy, singing, laughter but no sadness or tears. Revelation 21:4; Luke 6:21
If we're born again [John 3:3,7] children of God, we have no fear of the day we stop breathing on this earth. We’ll have eternal life with the Lord Jesus Who has gone to prepare a place for us – Heaven. John 14:3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17
The sister of Lazarus [not the beggar Lazarus, Luke 16:22-23], Martha said to the Lord Jesus when her brother died: “I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day." John 11:24. Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.” John 11:25 After Jesus arose from the dead, His disciples were still able to recognize Him and we will be like Jesus*. 1 John 3:2; Matthew 17:2 and equal to the angels. Luke 20:36
Among the wonderful promises of the Lord Jesus; #1 of course is the forgiveness of our sin and His guidance to all who honor and obey Him. Then when we stop breathing - we go into the presence of the Lord. Colossians 2:5; Luke 11:28 Hallelujah!

In the 2018 Election When the Democrats Took Control of the US House of Representatives - computerized voting machines may have been hacked
11-22-19, AmerThinker — In essence, widely understood among reasonably sophisticated IT people the security protections in software operated on voting machines throughout the USA had been purposely disabled or ‘un-activated;’ allowing possible penetration of the machines via online access methods. Also mismatches in time-stamped data flows suggest votes were changed. For example, using open-source “Burp Suite” web-crawling software, the investigators looked into a company that supplies software used at polling locations in Texas and 15 other states. They found readily accessible information within this company’s website showing purposeful disclosure of passwords by which anyone could log in to databases that include a wide range of voter and precinct and poll-worker information, including voter names, addresses, social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, etc.
Blatant Voter Fraud In Plain Sight In 2018 Mid-Term Elections
11-27-18, The United States is currently in a constitutional crisis, and has been for years, over having the dirtiest elections in the world. Of course, there are the usual voter fraud tactics being used such as people voting multiple times in the same election, illegal aliens being allowed to vote, electronic ballots programmed to switch votes for a particular candidate and votes being cast by dead people. Now, we are dealing with local precincts who have elections supervisors who destroy, deliberately hide, and claim to miraculously find literally hundreds of thousands of votes after elections are called. Of course, the main counties involved are the usual dens of corruption that have been at it for decades, namely Broward, Palm Beach, and Miami-Dade counties in Florida.
More devastating accessible ‘storyboards’ effectively amount to disclosure of source code for this software (in both IoS and Android form), opening a range of possible nefarious ‘black hat’ hacking and manipulation that can enable, in bottom line terms, control over any and every voting results in America. (..snip)
A vigorous investigation, exposure and correction would be a monumental republic restoring process. AG William Barr needs to get on this! If the fraud is as widespread and systemic as many believe - there isn’t going to be a technical fix in time for the 2020 elections. There may in fact be only one solution:
An American grassroots effort on a scale never before seen to demand that the 2020 election be by paper ballot, counted manually, in all 50 states.
Pelosi forced to send articles of impeachment to Senate or it'll be dismissed
1-10-20, RT.com -- After Republican leadership in the Senate rejected Pelosi's requested conditions and moved to dismiss the charges unless impeach articles sent, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi caved saying they will be transmitted next week. Republicans pointed to the delays as proof the Democrats were not serious and that the entire process was a partisan attempt to overturn the 2016 election. They also pointed to Pelosi holding a vote to approve the trade deal with Mexico and Canada a day after the hoax of impeachment, and inviting Trump to deliver the annual State of the Union address on February 4, 2020 as if nothing had happened.
Why Pelosi stalled for three weeks to send President Trump impeachment articles to the Senate
Dec 19, 2019 · The drama over when Pelosi will send Trump’s impeachment articles to the Senate ... she's stalling because she knows there is no 'there' there! It's a phony political hoax ... so she stalled hoping to pull some magic trick out of the hat preventing his acquittal.
Nancy Pelosi doesn't have 'shared respect for life' as Mike Lee [R-UT] who is a Mormon ... considering she's pro abortion and the govt killing Americans and hiding it.
Impeach Barack Obama! U.S. citizens killed in Obama drone strike
3-19-14, On May 22, 2013, the Obama administration "formally acknowledged for the first time that it had killed four American citizens in drone strikes outside the battlefields of Afghanistan and Iraq"...As LaRouche Democrat and U.S. Senate candidate Ms Kesha Rogers of Texas calls for the impeachment of Democrat President Barack Obama, she lists among her reasons the "assassination" of U.S. citizens.
The Obama White House claims that only American Anwar al-Awlaki was specifically targeted. However, there is no way to verify that, since the deliberations are secret.
Anwar al-Awlaki and Khan were killed in Yemen on Sept. 30, 2011. A March 9, 2013, Times news story about the strike said al-Awlaki, a Muslim cleric born in New Mexico, incited and plotted terrorist incidents involving U.S. targets, including lending support via email to Muslim killer Nidal Hasan in 2009 before he killed 13 and wounded more than 30 people at Fort Hood in Texas. Khan, who the story said came from North Carolina, edited the online Islamic al-Qaeda propaganda magazine Inspire that promotes killing and arson wildfires. More here

Extinct volcanoes are coming back to life
1-2-20, Watchers.news* -- An extinct volcano by definition is a dead volcano, which has not erupted in 1000s of years. It's now obvious that volcanoes are erupting at a faster pace, not only around the ring of fire, but also around the entire globe. Even dormant & extinct volcanoes are becoming active again. An extinct volcano by definition is a dead volcano, which has not erupted in 1000s of years and is not expected to erupt ever again. In other words there's no magmatic, seismic or degassing activity going on. Following are five extincts that are suspicious:
- The Bolshaya Udina volcano is located in eastern Russia may be active again and scientists are worried that it could have "catastrophic" consequences1
- The Oraefajokull volcano in Iceland has been dormant since its last eruption in 1727-1728 may be waking up2
- Sotarà volcano in Columbia has eruption warning levels and would be first in recorded history3
- Cerro Negro volcano, and Volcán Chiles volcanic complex are located along the border of Columbia and Ecuador are are experiencing unrest.4

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
1-9-10, * -- The recent big drama in Iraq is a game changing event. On Jan 2, 2020 the USA Military eradicated the no.1 master mind of terror in the Middle East and the bitterest enemy of Israel since its RE-birth in 1948 – Iran’s General Qassem Soleimani.
Since Soleimani’s death the Iranians have retaliated with a face saving rocket attack on Iraq – killing no one. [Except a commercial Ukraine Airliner with 180 passengers. (1)] Apparently this current round of violence has ended, but a new round of President Trump’s sanctions targeting Iran’s non-oil industries and ruling elites while the U.S. will ratchet up enforcement of existing sanctions. (2) [Sadly dozens of Iranian citizens were killed during a stampede at the burial procession of Soleimani (3).]
The Iranian & US fake news media attempted to deceive the world by reporting that there were 80 U.S. casualties in the Iran rocket attack. An hour later, both the U.S. president and the Iranian foreign minister tweeted that there were no American casualties and no additional hostilities planned. In reality, the Iranian strike was far less severe than the one Iran launched last week that started this whole round of escalation.
As world events are unfolding and the truth of the Word of God, I’m getting excited understanding the times and the seasons as we keep the faith and occupy until He comes to take us out of here. Hallelujah!

Why Is My Dog Always Hungry?
1-16-17, It is not a secret to anyone: dogs are naturally greedy; especially when it comes to food. Often begging for treats - watching while you're cooking, watching & begging while you sit at the table to eat. This doesn't mean that your dog is hungry, just that he is a glutton. Yeah he is.
Hands-On Guide to Checking if Your Dog Is Over Weight
Simple method to check your dogs weight:
Run your hands along his back and sides - if he's proper weight you'll feel the ribs & spine and small amount of fat covering them. Also, at the base of the tail you'll feel a small layer of fat and it is smooth to the touch.
The Wisdom of God and Leadership
“And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had judged; and they feared the king: for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him, to do judgment.”
10-12-19, Henry Morris, PhD -- Although God’s wisdom is expounded in depth in the Scripture, there are only seven times that the specific phrase “the wisdom of God” is used as such. The above text is indicating that God’s wisdom can actually be manifested in men through divine inspiration. The Persian [current day Iran] king recognized this also in Ezra. “And thou, Ezra, after the wisdom of thy God, that is in thine hand, set magistrates and judges . . . all such as know the laws of thy God; and teach ye them that know them not.” (Ezra 7:25)
Thus, the wisdom of God is always consistent with His laws—that is, with the Scriptures.
The first New Testament reference is from Christ. “Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles” (Luke 11:49). Here the Lord is applying a scriptural principle from 2 Chronicles 36:15-16, in effect calling the Scriptures themselves “the wisdom of God.”
Then three times the Apostle Paul uses the same phrase: “In the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God.”
“We preach . . . Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.” That is, through both the written word and the living Word, we can proclaim true wisdom. “We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery . . . which God ordained before the world unto our glory.” 1 Corinthians 1:21, 23-24; 2:7
“to the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God.” Ephesians 3:10 "For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:" Romans 1:20 Source
Full Transcript President Trump's Remarks
"Iran appears to be standing down...."
Regarding Iran Military Action and
US Disposal of Iran's General Soleimani
United States White House
Washington DC, USA
President Donald J. Trump:
"As long as I am President of the United States, Iran will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon.
Good morning. I’m pleased to inform you the American people should be extremely grateful and happy that no Americans were harmed in last night’s attack by the Iranian regime. We suffered no casualties, all of our soldiers are safe, and only minimal damage was sustained at our military bases.
Our great American forces are prepared for anything. Iran appears to be standing down, which is a good thing for all parties concerned and a very good thing for the world.
No American or Iraqi lives were lost because of the precautions taken, the dispersal of forces, and an early warning system that worked very well. I salute the incredible skill and courage of America’s men and women in uniform.
For far too long — all the way back to 1979, to be exact — nations have tolerated Iran’s destructive and destabilizing behavior in the Middle East and beyond. Those days are over. Iran has been the leading sponsor of terrorism, and their pursuit of nuclear weapons threatens the civilized world. We will never let that happen.
Last week, we took decisive action to stop a ruthless terrorist from threatening American lives. At my direction, the United States military eliminated the world’s top terrorist, Qasem Soleimani. As the head of the Quds Force, Soleimani was personally responsible for some of the absolutely worst atrocities.
He trained terrorist armies, including Hezbollah, launching terrorist strikes against civilian targets. He fueled bloody civil wars all across the region. He viciously wounded and murdered thousands of U.S. troops, including the planting of roadside bombs that maim and dismember their victims.
Soleimani directed the recent attacks on U.S. personnel in Iraq that badly wounded four service members and killed one American, and he orchestrated the violent assault on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad. In recent days, he was planning new attacks on American targets, but we stopped him.
Soleimani’s hands were drenched in both American and Iranian blood. He should have been terminated long ago. By removing Soleimani, we have sent a powerful message to terrorists: If you value your own life, you will not threaten the lives of our people.
As we continue to evaluate options in response to Iranian aggression, the United States will immediately impose additional punishing economic sanctions on the Iranian regime. These powerful sanctions will remain until Iran changes its behavior.
In recent months alone, Iran has seized ships in international waters, fired an unprovoked strike on Saudi Arabia, and shot down two U.S. drones.
Iran’s hostilities substantially increased after the foolish Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2013, and they were given $150 billion, not to mention $1.8 billion in cash. Instead of saying “thank you” to the United States, they chanted “death to America.” In fact, they chanted “death to America” the day the agreement was signed.
Then, Iran went on a terror spree, funded by the money from the deal, and created hell in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, and Iraq. The missiles fired last night at us and our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration. The regime also greatly tightened the reins on their own country, even recently killing 1,500 people at the many protests that are taking place all throughout Iran.
The very defective JCPOA expires shortly anyway, and gives Iran a clear and quick path to nuclear breakout. Iran must abandon its nuclear ambitions and end its support for terrorism. The time has come for the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia, and China to recognize this reality.
They must now break away from the remnants of the Iran deal -– or JCPOA –- and we must all work together toward making a deal with Iran that makes the world a safer and more peaceful place. We must also make a deal that allows Iran to thrive and prosper, and take advantage of its enormous untapped potential. Iran can be a great country.
Peace and stability cannot prevail in the Middle East as long as Iran continues to foment violence, unrest, hatred, and war. The civilized world must send a clear and unified message to the Iranian regime: Your campaign of terror, murder, mayhem will not be tolerated any longer. It will not be allowed to go forward.
Today, I am going to ask NATO to become much more involved in the Middle East process. Over the last three years, under my leadership, our economy is stronger than ever before and America has achieved energy independence. These historic accompliments [accomplishments] changed our strategic priorities. These are accomplishments that nobody thought were possible. And options in the Middle East became available. We are now the number-one producer of oil and natural gas anywhere in the world. We are independent, and we do not need Middle East oil.
The fact that we have this great military and equipment, however, does not mean we have to use it. We do not want to use it. American strength, both military and economic, is the best deterrent.
Three months ago, after destroying 100 percent of ISIS and its territorial caliphate, we killed the savage leader of ISIS, al-Baghdadi, who was responsible for so much death, including the mass beheadings of Christians, Muslims, and all who stood in his way. He was a monster. Al-Baghdadi was trying again to rebuild the ISIS caliphate, and failed.
Tens of thousands of ISIS fighters have been killed or captured during my administration. ISIS is a natural enemy of Iran. The destruction of ISIS is good for Iran, and we should work together on this and other shared priorities.
Finally, to the people and leaders of Iran: We want you to have a future and a great future — one that you deserve, one of prosperity at home, and harmony with the nations of the world. The United States is ready to embrace peace with all who seek it.
I want to thank you, and God bless America.
Thank you very much."

1-8-20, Fox News -- Reportedly Iran fired dozens of missiles aimed at bases in Iraq in retaliation for the American strike that killed Iranian general Qasem Soleimani last week. Iran may have chosen to just send a face saving message rather than take significant enough action to provoke a substantial US military response. Many believe the current action is possibly a signal that the Iranian administration's current desire is to calm tensions. Iranian missiles landed close to the US consulate in Erbil, but didn’t target the consulate itself, though the belief is that they could have...
Obama's Legacy Is Dead and Trump Killed It
5-20-18, RedState -- Obama was a race-baiter ... he spent a decade or more in a church led by a virulent racist and bigot. Throughout his tenure in office, he sought to stoke racial tensions for political goals. Whether it was the “beer summit” or Trayvon Martin or Michael Brown or #BlackLivesMatter, Obama consistently pitted races against each other. [..] World events certainly are not peaceful, but are better than they were in 2016.
Pres Trump has changed the world:
Jesus said, "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
1-7-20, As we watch the world's terror in the Middle East, Israel, Australia and mayhem in governments ... we just want peace. True peace can only be achieved from within. How? Well, when we're born again in Christ [John 3:3, 7] the holy Spirit dwells within us. The Apostle Paul says that it will go deep into our hearts and minds.
Contrary to the pontificating of liberals and their psychobabble, it isn’t something that can be explained in a self help book or with a few simple steps ... it only comes from God (John 14:27).
Followers of the Lord Jesus Christ - most of us - are at peace. It's not because our surroundings are peaceful, but because our hearts and minds are at peace with God. We are children of the King of Kings [Revelation 17:10-11] and He has everything under control. Whatever the evil world leaders plan ... the Lord is WAY ahead of them. Much of what we see that incomprehensible lunatic leaders contrive may be the result of God's strong delusion. [2 Thess 2:10-12]
Be at peace.
For liberals, it’s more fun to blame climate change than arsonists for Australian fires – but 200 arrests show it’s not so simple
1-7-20, Two hundred people arrested for arson in Australia; 85% of bushfires started by humans… most deliberately. The fires are primarily raging in New South Wales, which is home to Sydney and more than seven million people. The fires have killed 25 people [that's known so far] and destroyed hundreds of millions of animals and livestock, thousands of homes and more than 19 million acres of land. [..] Those charged with arson could face harsh penalties, including manslaughter, which carries a penalty of 25 years in prison. Police in New South Wales have taken legal action against 183+ people for fire-related offenses since early November 2019, including "discarding a lighted cigarette or match on land." More here
Bushfire arson: Why do people deliberately light bushfires?
11-13-19, Australia's most notorious bushfire arsonist is Brendan Sokaluk, a former Victorian Country Fire Authority volunteer, who killed 10 people when he deliberately lit a bushfire on Black Saturday. Sokaluk became one of Victoria's worst killers in 2009 when his fire killed 10 and razed more than 150 homes.
Australian Rainforest burning
9-10-19, Guardian -- In Australia 50% of the Great Barrier Reef, the potential loss of these areas is burning ... there are about 80 fires in Queensland and a further 60 blazes raging through New South Wales. The maps show the east coast terrifyingly lit up like a grotesque Christmas tree. Many of these fires are burning out of control as the relentlessly gusty winds ground the firefighting aircraft needed to bring the blazes under control.
As of January 6, 2020:
Twenty-five people dead
Destroyed: 1588 homes, 153 facilities, 3122 outbuildings
Burned: 19 million acres
