Isaiah 17 Rising?

I want to call your attention to to Isaiah 17.

[Isa 17:1-14 KJV] 1 “The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from [being] a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. 2 The cities of Aroer [are] forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make [them] afraid. 3 The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the LORD of hosts. 4 And in that day it shall come to pass, [that] the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean. 5 And it shall be as when the harvestman gathereth the corn, and reapeth the ears with his arm; and it shall be as he that gathereth ears in the valley of Rephaim. 6 Yet gleaning grapes shall be left in it, as the shaking of an olive tree, two [or] three berries in the top of the uppermost bough, four [or] five in the outmost fruitful branches thereof, saith the LORD God of Israel. 7 At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel. 8 And he shall not look to the altars, the work of his hands, neither shall respect [that] which his fingers have made, either the groves, or the images. 9 In that day shall his strong cities be as a forsaken bough, and an uppermost branch, which they left because of the children of Israel: and there shall be desolation. 10 Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, and hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength, therefore shalt thou plant pleasant plants, and shalt set it with strange slips: 11 In the day shalt thou make thy plant to grow, and in the morning shalt thou make thy seed to flourish: [but] the harvest [shall be] a heap in the day of grief and of desperate sorrow. 12 Woe to the multitude of many people, [which] make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, [that] make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters! 13 The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but [God] shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind. 14 And behold at eveningtide trouble; [and] before the morning he [is] not. This [is] the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us”.

I am not trying to be a doomsayer, but I am going to make this observation and then let you, my readers, decide how you want to respond to this Middle East powder keg situation. I am definitely going into a ‘season’ of prayer about what the Lord would have me do “as we see that day approaching”. One thing I know for sure is that I am not going to make any projections concerning the start of the Day of the Lord, the timing of the Rapture of the Saints, the length of great tribulation, etc. I am already ‘on the record’ with articles on those events. So, if you are curious as to what I think, it is right here on Hey Jude 15 for the ‘world to read’. Let’s just say that God has NOT told me to apologize or retract anything I taught in those articles. I want my readers to study the Word of God to see for themselves if what I teach is a valid approach to end times prophecy. If you desire to study you MUST NOT use other peoples ‘theories’ to measure my teaching against! Pre-trib, post-trib, mid-trib, pre-wrath, amillenialism, covenant theology, preterism, etc. are only mens’ (peoples’) surmisings. I do not believe any of these “theories” are Biblically sound.

Just a small commentary on Isaiah 17 and I will post this short update. Most fundamental Bible scholars agree that this is a prophecy that is yet to be fulfilled. I totally agree on this point. Most of that group of scholars are pre-tribulation rapture adherrants (which I am not). They say that the sixth trumpet war ‘wholly’ happens during the great tribulation. On that point I disagree. Here is why.

I believe that the 6th trumpet war ‘starts’ before the great tribulation begins. Obviously, the sixth trumpet is before the seventh/last trumpet. I believe and teach that, when the 7th trumpet begins to sound, the “mystery of God” will be finished (Rev. 10:6,7). The mystery of God is the CHURCH, ([Eph 3:1-11 KJV] 1 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, 2 If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: 3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, 4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) 5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; 6 That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: 7 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. 8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; 9 And to make all [men] see what [is] the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: 10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly [places] might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, 11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:)  that universal body of true believers who have been redeemed and who have remained faithful to Jesus until the end (death or the rapture of the saints). The seventh trumpet starts sounding at the rapture and keeps blowing until the second coming of Christ to earth during the battle of Armageddon.

Here is the crux of why I am writing this post; I believe that Isaiah 17, the destruction of Damascus is the flashpoint occurrence (beginning) of the 6th trumpet war. With the current state of hostilities between Iran, Syria, and other Muslim nations against Israel, we are seeing the precursors to Isaiah 17. [Rev 9:13-20 KJV] 13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. 15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. 16 And the number of the army of the horsemen [were] two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. 17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses [were] as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. 18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. 19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails [were] like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt. 20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk.

Friends, keep up with current events in the Middle East. I believe it is essential for us as leaders of our families to be aware and on our toes at this point in history.

Put on the whole armor of God,

Ken Hall

………ps, Today is the official opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. What do you think Muslims think of that occurrence? !!!!!!!! psss…I believe that the destruction of Damascus is a nuclear bomb event that will be blamed on Israel (I do not believe that Israel is crazy enough to start a nuclear war)!!

Isaiah 17 Rising?

Review of Hey, Jude 15 after 40 articles.

It is time to take stock on whether I qualify as a false prophet. I mean business, I do. I do not want to lead anyone astray!

I just posted my 40th article a few days ago, so I am going back and review what I have written in the 2+ years of Hey, Jude 15. One third is what I call Bible teaching and the other two thirds are commentary or discernment on the times in which we live (the great apostasy). I believe that the Bible teaching I have done is fundamentally sound. I do not read or listen to anyone else’ s teaching. It is mostly the Bible, Holy Spirit, and me. What  I say is my own exegesis. When I started intensely studying the Bible and using my Spiritual gifts about nine years ago, God has showed me wonderful things and has shown me to not ‘follow men’! I know I am seen as kinda ‘out there’ as judged by the pet doctrines of most teachers in the days in which we live. So, if you read my blog, you are welcome to comment on the content. I will answer each serious inquiry. I do not ‘argue’ about Scripture. So do not come looking for a battle. You will not get it here. As I said, I am going back and reading my articles now.

Stay tuned for a week or so for an article of me evaluating “me”!!

Review of Hey, Jude 15 after 40 articles.

Why Call You Me, Lord?

 

Do you think Jesus requires all committed Christians (His modern day disciples) to be under His Lordship and to try to live up to the standard He set for the original twelve. Listen to His words in Luke’s gospel.

“20 And he lifted up his eyes on his ‘disciples’, and said, Blessed [be ye] poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. 21 Blessed [are ye] that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed [are ye] that weep now: for ye shall laugh. 22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you [from their company], and shall reproach [you], and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake. 23 Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward [is] great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets. 24 But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation. 25 Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep. 26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets. 27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, 28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. 29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the [one] cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not [to take thy] coat also. 30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask [them] not again. 31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. 32 For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. 33 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. 34 And if ye lend [to them] of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. 35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and [to] the evil. 36 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. 37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: 38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. 39 And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch? 40 The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master. 41 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 42 Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother’s eye. 43 For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 44 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. 45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. 46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? 47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: 48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. 49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.” [Luke 6:20-49 KJV]

You see, Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. The Bible states that in Hebrews 13. That is one of the great traits of our Holy Trinity. They DO NOT CHANGE. They are immutable in essence and action. Do you believe that statement or are you of the type that change God’s words and instructions into man’s deceitfulness and iniquity? I define iniquity as “ religious sin”.  Things that you do in the religious/spiritual realm that abrogate the word of God, Jesus’s clear written instructions! The un-Biblical things that hirelings tell their congregants, and that most gladly follow. Second Peter chapter two describes these false workers, BUT It also condemns those who blindly follow false teaching. It is your job to be a discerning Christian and flee from this awful iniquity. There is nothing on earth more full of iniquitous sin that a false teacher who abuses the word of God and teaches others to do the same. Nothing!!!

So if you have never been told or have forgotten that you are supposed to obey the word of God, and walk in the Spirit so you can tell false teaching and prophecy when it comes your way, I am reminding you NOW. It will not be a good excuse on judgment day to blame your lack of discernment on others, telling the Lord this, ” I followed so and so”. No Christian, you are responsible  for knowing and obeying the Lord’s commandments that apply to you. The Holy Spirit and the Bible are supposed to be your guide in all things, and they will never lead you wrong. It is always apostate men (and women) who lead you into perdition and away from God.

“Why call me you me, Lord, and do not what I say?”–Jesus Christ–

Thanks for reading Hey Jude 15

Why Call You Me, Lord?

Is This Encouragement Or Admonition?

Is it possible to encourage the saints about this world we live in? Personally, I do not think it possible (or wise) to try and put a ‘rosy’ glow on this current world situation. Neither is it Biblical!

Having said that, we Christians should encourage one another.Have you heard the saying, “that guy is too heavenly minded to be any earthly good”. I believe that we should be “heavenly minded” as much as possible. Tell me what is wrong with putting a God-spin on what you are saying. The only problem with talking “Bible” a lot is that then we must “practice what we preach, or we are a hypocrite. Another quick point, you cannot talk Bible unless you know Bible.

With this little ditty let me let me leave you for today, encouraged (or admonished?) with Jesus’s words from the gospel of John. “31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue  (stay) in Word, [then] are ye my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” [Jhn 8:31-32 KJV]

Blessings to the blessable,

Ken

Is It All Good? (Should It Be?)

 

 

What is your ‘state of mind’ today? Are you happy? Are you basing your contentment  with this life on a real ‘ self-examination’ of your innermost thoughts and desires? As humans, we are uniquely equipped for self deception and everything that terrible existence (being self-deceived )leads to. We pat ourselves on the back and keep strolling around in la-la land, giving no thought to hardly anything really worthwhile, much less Biblical.” IT’S ALL GOOD, MAN!”

Well, I guess I got on ‘your good side’ with that statement! Not! I tend to do that to people. I am not sorry, because it is a Biblical mandate for the preacher to do such.

“1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. … 16 All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” “17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” [2Ti 3:17 KJV]i 3:1-5, 16,17 KJV] Also, “1 I charge [thee] therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;” [2Ti 4:1-3 KJV]

I want to focus on these 10 verses of Scripture in my post today. particularly 2 Timothy 3:16, 4:1-3. The Bible tells us that in the last days ‘perilous’ times shall come. There is no concensus on when the “last days’ start(ed). I am of the opinion that these days started in May 1948.

 “32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer [is] nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, [even] at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 36 But of that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37 But as the days of Noe [were], so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two [women shall be] grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46 Blessed [is] that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 49 And shall begin to smite [his] fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for [him], and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint [him] his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” [Mat 24:32-51 KJV] 

I copied and pasted that passage to let you read for yourself the Scripture that is telling us about Israel (the fig tree) and the length of the ‘last days’. This Scripture tells us the length of the last days, I do believe. The “last days” cover a time period of 70 years-1948 through 2018.; the time of the nation Israel’s sovereignty. You see,  Israel is going  to be overrun by the Gentiles one last time. The “little horn” and his  Muslim armies will decimate Israel before, and into the tribulation of God’s chosen people. By me saying that Israel will lose her nationhood in 2018, does not mean that ‘all things will be fulfilled ‘ ; there are wars and battles, destruction and mayhem to come after Israel is put down again.

I am projecting this! The church age will end in this year: 2018.The church age ends at the ‘parousia, the glorious appearing of Jesus Christ in the air (clouds) to receive His glorious bride’, the Church. Here is a couple of verses from Rev. 10 that God gave me a few years ago that sheds light on when the Church age ends. “6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: 7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets” [Rev 10:6-7 KJV] Notice the very last clause in verse 6 and all of verse 7. Let me reword those verses for you. “There will no longer be any time to be saved when the seventh trumpet begins sounding. The Church, the mystery of God, will be complete, as God has revealed unto His prophets, who recorded His Word.

Let’s mosey back to 2 Timothy 3 for a minute. As I said when we started, I have a commission from God to speak the truth, whether it offends or not. The Bible needs to be proclaimed ‘boldly’. Tickling your ears will only harm you in the long run. If I do not speak the truth of God’s Word and somehow get your attention on these critical issues that are facing the church today then everyone loses. Listen to these verses that are my “marching orders” from the Lord.

“17 Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. 18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked [man] shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. 19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. 20 Again, When a righteous [man] doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand. 21 Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous [man], that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.” [Eze 3:17-21 KJV]

A lot of people will tell you that this Old Testament Scripture is not binding to the man of God in these days. I have good Biblical words for that kind of talk and thinking, liberal hogwash (2 Peter 2:22). These false teachers have stolen the family farm from you while you are asleep at the wheel of your Spiritual life. They  have come in as sheep, but they are surely wolves.

Listen to this, reader friend, “13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” [2Ti 3:13 KJV]. These false workers are deceived themselves (by demonic forces) and they go about telling their congregants many heresies that deceive and bind them into ineffectual Christians, at the best, or making them into what 2 Timothy 3:2-5 tell us about, at the worst case. 

The preaching of the Biblical Word, with clarity, power and anointing is the only remedy for the sin-sickness, apathy, and apostasy that has ensnared our churches, Bible colleges, and seminaries. These are places of Laodicean error, and there is only this hope for them; repentance on the individual level. Corporate “revival” is not forecast in the ‘last days, only apostasy and error.”10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” [2Th 2:10-12 KJV]

I know those verses from 2 Thessalonians 2 are harsh-sounding to Christians (?) nowadays, but my mission is summed up in these verses from the book of Jude. “20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, 21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22 And of some have compassion, making a difference: 23 And others save with fear, pulling [them] out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. 24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present [you] faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 25 To the only wise God our Saviour, [be] glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.” [Jde 1:20-25 KJV]

Is It All Good? (Should It Be?)

New Format. Commentary on the Current Headlines in the News. 1/26/2018

Okay folks . I  am revamping my thinking on what it will take to get your attention about the sorry state of this country, biblically speaking.

If I were a pagan with a good sense of fiscal responsibility, I would be thrilled with President Donald Trump’s job performance in that cesspool called Washington, D. C.. Sorta thrilled,  I am anyways. (Whoops! Good, nobody was listening (Are those moments named McCainian slips or poosibly Grahamesque humbug. Not from me, I tell you the truth. Those 2 guys haven’t been around the truth since they were in diapers. Nope, they sure ain’t.

Alas, that is not my calling. I am a writer on Biblical subjects, a Biblical modern day prophet. One who sees trouble approaching and sounds the warning that wolves are after you, that the demons of hell are seeking your soul. So, if you want to titlize me correctly, you could say this; Ken Hall- modern day prophet/watchman. That sounds kind of haughty. Oh well. So be it.  Amen

So, on to a new topic (or two ) that is currently in the news.

The government SHUTDOWN. This is baloney; rotten BALONEY! I am not going into many details about what is going on here. Some kind of political move (filibuster) that will stop the federal government from ‘fully functioning’ come Monday morning in ‘Dirtington, D. C. The federal government’s employees will stop being paid come Monday (the sorta opposite of washed is dirt(y). So , I say, Dirtington is a great name for such a stinking place. The Bible calls her the ‘great whore’ of  the modern day earth. This is not a sexual reference. As defined by Webster, a whore is a venal or ‘unscrupulous’ person. These venal ‘skunks’ will try their best to get these illegal immigrants ‘free access’ to benefits they ‘do not deserve’.  Immigration is a good thing when done legally and properly administered.

I want to remind you where all this ‘junk’ got started. An illegal (to be implemented, in other words -unconstitutional) executive order by Barack Obama! These people were here illegally, against the laws of this sovereign country. Everyone knows this! 

I want to make a strong statement. President Trump could (and should) rescind that unconstitutional DACA order from Obama. The President is showing great  ‘business sense’ to get the economy fired back up and going, but he is ‘dropping the ball’ in  the   ‘cohones’ department when it comes to ‘playing’ politics in the trenches of Dirtington, D.C. I am finding that, in many cases, he talks big, but  wields a ‘ little stick ‘. It is not going to last much longer ( his ability to get away with lies about the promises that got him elected). Not much longer at all!!! Personally, I think “The Art of the Deal” is written all over the White House and its current residents and guests. So campaign promises are just a part (lying) of the Donald’s hat tricks and show business savvy. Had to make them, had to break them

So, what happens at 3400 Pennsylvania Ave. Right now, it is looking like a deal has been struck for ‘safe harbors’ for the Trump fleet. Sailing before long for the Trumpster and his beloved.

As for me, I am staying away from Dirtington, D.C. and putting on the armor Of God daily, and watching things In Israel and the Middle East.

Keep oil in your lamps! Do not ‘sell out’ or go to sleep ‘in you soul’!

Keep the faith that was ONCE delivered unto the saints. Keep your garments washed and white.  Keep your Spiritual radar up and running.  “23 Let us hold fast the profession of [our] faith without wavering; (for he [is] faithful that promised;) 24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some [is]; but exhorting [one another]: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. 26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. 28 He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: 29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance [belongeth] unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. 31 [It is] a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. 32 But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions; 33 Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used. 34 For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance. 35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. 36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. 37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. 38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if [any man] draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. 39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.” [Heb 10:23-39 KJV]. 

Are you one who explains those verses away? I would not bet my life on that tactic.
