“Unfortunately, not many Christians have the courage to make the stand for truth.” – Steven Ben-Nun, a Messianic Jew (starting at 2:23) Continue reading “Steven Ben-Nun: “Not many Christians have the courage to make the stand for truth””
Glorious, anointed, resting-in-God song from 1975 that I was blessed to experience as a young Christian! Christian music was awesome then, and will again be someday, when ‘ONE’ happens “that the world will know” (Jesus’ prayer in John 17)!
I was able to see Chuck a few years later, while attending the University of Minnesota — just him and a piano in the student union.

Abide (Paul Clark)
The more I go on with you Lord
I find that I cannot afford
To stay away from your side
It’s in the Vine I’ll Abide
Your words are truth and life to me
They cleanse and sanctify me
I know it’s power can’t be denied
It’s in the Vine I’ll Abide
A child of God I know I am
I’ve been washed in the precious blood of the Lamb
But I haven’t touched the hole in His side
But in the vine I’ll Abide
To bring forth fruit this is my aim
And give the glory to Your name
To do the same you must decide
If in the Vine you’ll Abide
Jesus is the Vine
“Gotta Serve Somebody”
by Bob Dylan
You may be a preacher with your spiritual pride
You may be a city councilman taking bribes on the side
You may be working in a barbershop, you may know how to cut hair
You may be somebody’s mistress, may be somebody’s heir
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes
You’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody
4:00 Eyes: how essential and amazingly complex tears are!
8:00 Ears! How amazingly complex ears are!
Ear hairs are 72 times finer than regular hairs. They’re also like springs. When they snap from very loud sounds is when people lose their hearing.
No doubt, this is mostly excellent, words that can help many of us love and forgive more easily and fully.
But something bothered me about this when a friend posted it. My part of our discussion is below the image.
Note my comment below (in blue), showing how Hagee deceived Trump into thinking he’s helping rebuild the temple for good; though, it will be an abomination where animal sacrifices will burn, and from where the antichrist will rule during the tribulation, giving the order to chop off Christians’ heads.
Hagee told Trump instead that Jesus will rule from the temple, but this can only happen after the end of the tribulation — if there really will be a millennium.
This is reverse-Christianity.

The Evangelicals Who Pray for War With Iran
Mike Pence and Mike Pompeo, who urged Trump to kill Qassem Soleimani, are ardent proponents of Christian Zionism.
Last Friday, a day after Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani and nine others were killed in a U.S. drone strike in Iraq, the Christian Zionist advocacy group Christians United for Israel emailed its millions of supporters to praise President Trump’s move. … Continue reading “The Evangelicals Who Pray for War With Iran – Pence and Pompeo, who urged Trump to kill Soleimani, ardent proponents of ‘Christian’ Zionism”
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy. 44 But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat you and persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Don’t even the tax collectors do the same? 47 If you only greet your friends, what more do you do than others? Don’t even the tax collectors do the same? 48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

9:50 Interview begins — thus only 25 minutes long.
24:35 “Libido Dominandi” is Jones’ book: Libido Dominandi: Sexual Liberation & Political Control, linked below.

30:30 “All of these forms of sexual liberation, they’re all forms of control.”
32:15 Solution is aligning with Logos.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. THOSE WHO BELONG TO CHRIST have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts.
Vatican calls on Catholics to stop trying to convert Jews
Declaration asserts Jewish people can be saved without converting, urges Christians to work with them to fight anti-Semitism Continue reading “Vatican: Stop Trying to Convert Jews – Salvation without Jesus — Like John Hagee’s dual covenant heresy”
The heart is more than a pump, containing brain-like cells. Many emotions and decisions come from the heart, not the brain. So NEVER get a heart transplant!
It’s pretty easy to tell which type I am. How about you?
Head-locators are categorized differently than heart-locators. Head-locators make decisions based on logic and facts whereas heart-locators make decisions based on their emotions. Do you think from your head or your heart?
I wrote this on Facebook in 2014, and today added a section at the end:
Jesus wants HIS JOY to remain in us, that our joy will be FULL. But this will only happen when we do what He commands — Life in the Son. Jesus’ words in John 15:
9 Even as the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Remain in my love. 10 IF YOU KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, YOU WILL REMAIN IN MY LOVE; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and remain in his love. 11 I have spoken these things to you, THAT MY JOY MAY REMAIN IN YOU, AND THAT YOUR JOY MAY BE MADE FULL.
12 “This is my commandment, that you LOVE ONE ANOTHER, EVEN AS I HAVE loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. 14 YOU ARE MY FRIENDS, IF YOU DO WHATEVER I COMMAND YOU.
And two chapters later, in John 17, Jesus says: “that they may have MY JOY MADE FULL IN THEMSELVES,” and promises to give us His GLORY to help us be ‘ONE’ with each other in Him, “that the world will know.”
But we must do it His way: ONE with each other in Christ “that the world will know!”
John 10 is being used to deceive the sheep — many ‘pastors’ today lying by omission. This first part of the passage (v. 27) is rarely quoted when they claim Jesus is saying we cannot lose our salvation. Jesus’ sheep hear His voice and follow Him, and no one can snatch them out of Jesus’ hand.
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give eternal life to them. They will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all. No one is able to snatch them out of my Father’s hand.
Who is “them?” Those who hear Jesus’ voice and follow Him.
Then look at what Jesus says in John 15 about the Vine and the branches. Branches that don’t abide in Him, not producing fruit that remains are cut off, thrown into the fire and burned.
We must hear and obey to be Jesus’ sheep.
