Murder? Blame the Inanimate Object - the gun
7-8-19, It’s a sham.The stated goal of some anti-gunners is typically moral - reducing fatalities. They try to take the easy way: blame the inanimate object. Ignore the tens of millions of law-abiding gun owners who commit no crime, who do no harm every year. Cite poorly done or misconstrued research that caters to a predetermined finding...

In a televised speech recently Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah issued a new threat to Israel’s cities and sensitive sites, boasting of their ability to hit targets deep inside the Jewish state of Israel.

Letter Oldest Christian Document Found 230s AD
"The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, Thou shalt preserve them from this generation forever."
7-11-19, The papyrus 'P.Bas. 2.43' has been in the possession of the University of Basel * for over 100 years. The letter has been dated to the 230s AD and is thus older than all previously known Christian documentary evidence from Roman Egypt. It describes day-to-day family matters; yet is unique in its own way: it provides valuable insights into the world of the first Christians in the Roman Empire, which is not recorded in any other historical source. John 1:1
The earliest Christians in the Roman Empire are usually portrayed as eccentrics who withdrew from the world and were threatened by persecution. This is countered by the contents this papyrus letter.
The letter in early third century indicates that Christians were living outside the cities in the Egyptian hinterland, where they held political leadership positions and did not differ from their pagan environment in their everyday lives. The document stands out from the mass of preserved letters of Greco-Roman Egypt by its concluding greeting formula:
After reporting on day-to-day family matters and asking for the best fish sauce as a souvenir, the letter writer uses the last line to express his wish that his brother will prosper “in the Lord.” The author uses the abbreviated form of the Christian phrase “I pray that you fare well ‘in the Lord’.” 1 Thessalonians 5:2-3
“The use of this abbreviation – known as a nomen sacrum in this context – leaves no doubt about the Christian beliefs of the letter writer,” says Sabine Huebner, Professor of Ancient History at the University of Basel.
“It is an exclusively Christian formula that we are familiar with from New Testament manuscripts.”
The name of the brother is also revealing, Huebner goes on to explain: “Paulus was an extremely rare name at that time and we may deduce that the parents mentioned in the letter were Christians and had named their son after the apostle as early as 200 AD.”
By means of extensive prosopographical  research, Huebner was able to trace the papyrus to the 230s AD. This makes the letter at least 40-50 years older than all other known Christian documentary letters worldwide.
The location of the papyrus was also successfully reconstructed: It comes from the village of Theadelphia in central Egypt and belongs to the famous Heroninus archive, the largest papyrus archive from Roman times. Titus 3:15; Revelation 22:21

Muslims/Arabs 'Palestinians' Leader Abbas Declares a Halt to Peace Agreements with the Jewish State of Israel [what peace have they had??]
7-25-19, Jerusalem Post -- On July 25, 2019, Muslim leader of Fatah in Ramallah Israel - Mahmoud Abbas called an emergency meeting of Muslim leaders in Ramallah.
announcing that Palestinian [PA] leadership has decided to “halt” all agreements signed with Israel.
He has reached out to Islamic terror group Hamas in Gaza, offering to end the dispute between them.
The meeting was called to discuss this week’s demolition of Palestinian buildings in the Wadi al-Hummus area near the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Sur Baher that the Jewish state of Israel declared illegal. 
Abbas said: “We announce the leadership’s decision to stop dealing with agreements signed with the Israeli side. As of tomorrow, we will lay mechanisms for implementing the decision taken by the Palestinian Central Council.” More here
7-23-19, Despite being given the green light by Israel’s High Court of Justice, the European Union says the demolition of illegally built homes in eastern Jerusalem violates international law.
The majority of these structures, unlike others Israel has demolished in eastern Jerusalem, are located in Area A and B of the West Bank. The demolitions capped a seven-year legal battle over the buildings, which Israel maintained posed a security risk as they were erected too close to the security fence. Work crews began the demolition work early on Monday morning, 7-22-19, completing it within hours.
7-30-19, Recently liberal "pearls" were clutched from coast to coast again when Pres Trump said citizens of Baltimore 'living in hell.' That's the Congressional district of Elijah Cummings. “Racism,” they cried. They cry that in response to any criticism who, to use another of their broken record responses, happens to be a “person of color.” The president was responding to Cumming's comments on the illegal border situation:
- Recently Cummings attacked the acting Sec of Homeland Security, screaming at Kevin McAleenan over the conditions of illegal migrants held at the border.
- Illegals on the border have 3 meals/day with a roof over their heads while many in Cummings’s district do not.
- Apparently rats and roaches are the only growth industry in West Baltimore Maryland.
Prophetic Times: Ad Hominem Redefining Truth
"Judgment is turned away backward, and justice stands afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. Yes, truth fails; and he that departs from evil makes himself a prey."
7-30-19, * -- Have you ever noticed that when people in a discussion have no facts or logic to back up their argument, they often resort to name calling or labeling? When this happens, it is a sure sign that they are losing the argument. There’s a term describing this behavior: “ad hominem.” Webster’s definition:
"appealing to feelings or prejudices rather than intellect; marked by or being an attack on an opponent's character rather than by an answer to the contentions made."
These days it's exactly what people are doing when they cannot support their arguments and someone disagrees with them; an attack is made on a person's character. The result is a labeling of the most undesirable nature, such as bigot, racist, etc. It’s important that we know and understand this method of argument as it’s in the news daily.
The recent row between President Trump, Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) & Al Sharpton [reverend**] is an excellent example. The president attacked Cummings for being in Congress a long time, yet his district has not seen any progress . Rather than defend the progress Cummings believes he's made in Baltimore, the strategy is to paint Trump as a racist and bigot [US govt advanced $16 billion under Pres Trump in 2018-Ed.]. The claim is based on fact that Cummings is black, as are most of those living in his district; the ad hominem immediately turned the discussion to racism and bigotry as the main issue.
Given the old adage that if you say a lie often enough, it becomes the truth, ad hominem arguments take a toll on their targets, especially in these days of 24/7 media. The uninformed, skeptical, cynical and suspicious will naturally gravitate toward what they want to believe rather [because they’re lazy or don’t really care about truth-Ed.] than check the true nature of the situation.
These are indeed prophetic times as truth is being redefined by ad hominem. Be aware. Seek the truth. Find what is acceptable unto the Lord. Proverbs 12:17-20; Ephesians 5:10; Romans 12:2

Can You Be Both Patriot American and a Christian?
"A wise man will hear and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels."
7-29-19, Bill Wilson -- In 2011 Filmmaker Chris Pinto* appeared on radio and television shows lambasting David Barton of Wallbuilders** for misleading Christian Americans about the foundation of Christ as the cornerstone of this nation. While I am not a historian, it is of interest to me. It is a fact that this United States of America had predominantly Christian roots at its founding and its laws are based on the laws of the Bible.**
- In 1565, the Protestant French Huguenots, who came to what is now Florida to escape persecution, were martyred by Catholic Spanish troops.
- The 1606 Jamestown Charter from King James stated ”...in propagating of Christian Religion to such People, as yet live in Darkness and miserable Ignorance of the true Knowledge and Worship of God, and may in time bring the Infidels and Savages, living in those Parts, to human Civility, and to a settled and quiet Government...”
- Sixteen years later “The Mayflower Compact”  proclaimed: “Having undertaken, for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith, and honor of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia...”
“Take heed that no man deceive you.” Matthew 24:4
On January 10, 1963, Florida Congressman A.S. Herlong, Jr. read into the Congressional Record  the 45 stated goals of communism from “The Naked Communist” by Cleon Skousen. Numbers 27-30 stated:
“27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch." 28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state." 29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis. 30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man".”
Rest assured that God WAS in control of forming this nation for His good purpose. You can be both a patriot and a Christian—the freedom of one confirms the other.

'Port of Beirut now Port of Hezbollah,' Israel's Ambasador Danon tells United Nations Security Council [UNSC]
7-23-19, JerPost -- Iran is smuggling arms to Hezbollah in Lebanon through the port of Beirut by exploiting “civilian maritime channels,” On July 23, 2019 Israel’s ambassador to the UN in New York, Danny Danon, warned the Security Council. He said: “Israel found that Iran and the Quds Force have begun to advance the exploitation of the civilian maritime channels, and specifically the Port of Beirut.”
7-26-19, One of the most enduring narratives pushed forth by the Alt-Media Community is that Russia is “allied” with Iran in spite of all the evidence suggesting that it’s actually much more closely aligned with “Israel” in an intimate strategic partnership that can best be described as “Putinyahu’s Rusrael“. Maria Khodynskaya-Golenischeva’s latest article for her country’s top think tank, the Valdai Club vehemently denied that there was ever any intention for Moscow to construct a so-called “Russia-Shia axis” ... her country militarily cooperates with both the Syrian armed opposition and even the Islamic Republic’s hated foes in “Israel” as part of its regional “balancing” act... it comes “primarily from the West”... her comment strongly implies that this interpretation of events is therefore disreputable and might have the ulterior motive of discrediting Russia. In any case, her words are the most authoritative confirmation yet that Russia is not, nor ever was or will be, in an “alliance” with Iran.

The Enemies Destroyed Themselves
2 Chronicles 20:20-22
In the Wilderness of Tekoa as the people of Judah and Jerusalem set out early in the morning, King Jehoshaphat stood up saying:
“Hear me, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Believe in the LORD your God, and you will be upheld; believe in His prophets, and you will succeed.”
Then Jehoshaphat consulted with the people and appointed those who would sing to the LORD and praise the splendor of His holiness. As they went out before the army, they were singing:
“Give thanks to the LORD, for His loving devotion endures forever.”
The moment they began their shouts and praises, the LORD set ambushes against the men of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir who had come against Judah, and they were defeated.
2 Chronicles 20:15
The giraffe tongue is dark black, blue, or purple in color. Even though a typical giraffe neck can stretch as long as six feet, the giraffe's tongue usually only 18-20 inches long. Giraffes spend up to 12 hours each day eating, the tongue's dark color might protect it from exposure to the Sun's rays, thereby preventing sunburn! Their favorite food is acacia leaves that have high moisture content, up to 75 pounds of leaves in a day provides them with much of the water they need and can go days without drinking if they have plenty of acacia leaves.

PEACE: INNER TRANQUILITY
"I will fear no evil, for You are with me."
6-14-13, * -- When Jodie Foster accepted an award at the 2013 Golden Globes, she confessed: “I want to be seen, to be understood deeply, and to be not so very lonely.” Her words echo Jim Carrey, another successful American actor, who once said, “I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of, so they can see that it’s not the answer.”
We are tempted to put our hope in the false gods of money, sex, power and fame to satisfy our longings. As these Hollywood celebrities remind us, counterfeit gods never deliver on their promises. The Lord Jesus promised HIS peace, and it’s a peace that we can count on [John 14:27]. No better Scripture describes this placid state of the soul 'peace' than Psalm 23:1-6.
Inner spiritual peace is derived from being forgiven and knowing we are accepted in God's forever family. Only when we recognize that the Lord Jesus is present with us - in good times and not so good times - can we have an abiding peace that does not depend on our circumstances; wealth or health.
Fear and anxiety are natural responses to worrisome situations; but we can experience peace in the midst of dread by doing what God commands: “Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns.” (Phil. 4:6–7)

In Only Two Weeks Deadly Brain Infection Killed Eddie Gray
- A four-year-old boy from Louisiana picked up the deadly Naegleria fowleri while playing on a homemade water slide.
- California woman Kelsey McClain, 24, contracted the brain infection and died after entering her nose while she was swimming in the Colorado River in 2016.
- The organism does not cause illness if swallowed, but can be deadly if forced through the nose while swimming.
- There is currently no known cure for the amoeba.
- Since 1962 only 145 cases in the USA.
Colloidal Silver has been known as an effective antibiotic for centuries. In the early 1900s, Alfred Searle, founder of the Searle pharmaceutical company, discovered that it could kill the most deadly pathogens. Searle stated that applying colloidal silver to human subjects has been done in a large number of cases with astonishing results. The main advantage was that it was rapidly fatal to microbes without toxic action on its host. Recent research has also stated that colloidal silver can destroy antibiotic resistant microbes like MRSA, the bird flu and SARS.
Oil of oregano takes care of pathogenic bacteria without disrupting beneficial bacteria. It is also antiviral and antifungal which makes it a powerful three-in-one combination that rivals pharmaceuticals while not encouraging antibiotic resistance.
Echinacea has been used to treat a wide variety of infections for hundreds of years. Traditionally, it was used to treat open wounds, diphtheria, blood poisoning, and other bacterial related illnesses. Today, this potent herb is used mostly for colds and flu, due to its ability to destroy the most dangerous forms of bacteria such as staphylococcus aureus, which causes deadly MRSA.
Manuka Honey - Applied topically it can kill a wide range of pathogens including MRSA and flesh eating bacteria. Seven Proven Benefits and Uses of Manuka Honey - Healthline - Mar 29, 2018 - Manuka honey is a type of honey native to New Zealand. It's produced by bees who pollinate the flower Leptospermum scoparium, commonly known as the manuka bush. Manuka honey's antibacterial properties are what set it apart from traditional honey.

5-25-19, The Dems are scared as they know they can’t beat Trump in 2020. So they’re desperately trying to find anything they can to try and discredit him or better their chances. A presidential impeachment has little chance of passing as they’ll never get the Senate on board. They really don’t have any reason to go after Trump. Graham is right this is nothing more than political revenge for beating Mrs. Clinton.
