Sen. Shelley Hughes @ 9:00 – “Another thing I have employed in my role is to really try to work with everyone in the legislature without holding grudges, even if someone has done something that maybe is questionable, is to really have a good attitude, even when it would be easy to get resentful about things. And my trick for that — I am a person of faith — if somebody has done something wrong, instead of letting that resentment build up, I actually pray for that person. And it really changes my mindset, and keeps my attitude. I think having good relationships has paid off.”
WONDERFUL, except Jesse’s advice at 5:08. The Holy Spirit gives Christians thoughts too, not just demons. And we can get totally FREE of those demonic thoughts, so there is only One Voice left: the Holy Spirit.
“She apologized to her kids for all the hate, she apologized to her husband for fighting him AND she forgave her mother.”
If you’ve prayed a repentance prayer and still don’t feel guilt free, sometimes saying a prayer is not enough. Sometimes we must reconcile to be free, to have no condemnation:
“There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are in Christ Jesus, who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit” – Romans 8:1
“If therefore you are offering your gift [lifting up ‘holy’ hands to the Lord] at the altar, and there remember that your brother has anything against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift [worshiping in Spirit and in truth].” – Mt. 5:23-24
This is why Paul was able to say:
“..I also practice always having a conscience void of offense toward God and men” – Acts 24:16.
Where we spend eternity depends on this, but reconciliation will also bring in revival (when we’re ‘ONE’ in Christ – John 17):
“Confess your offenses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed.” – James 5:16a
God is waiting to pour out His grace on us when we actually do Jesus’ greatest two commandments.
If our consciences condemn us, this probably isn’t the Devil, as many pastors teach. This is the Holy Spirit warning us to get right with each other so we can be clean and FREE from guilt — ‘ONE’ with each other! To be going-to-heaven Christians and for Jesus to fill us with His joy and peace, we must be right with each other.
Let us be ‘ONE’ “that the world will know!”
Lana is not yet a Christian. Excellent discussion!
I transcribed at minute 17:00:
“You should discern, but not be angry. You should see evil, but not be angry at what you see because evil will overtake you and it will control you. Discern it without the anger. So see evil, speak up, but don’t hate.” – Jesse Lee Peterson
We Hold These Truths greeted messengers to the 2017 annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), held in Phoenix, Arizona. The vigilers were armed only with signs like “Choose Life, Not War,” “Blessed Are The Peacemakers,” “Where Are The Peacemakers?” and “No More Wars For Israel,” and two fliers: “Choose Life Not War” and “Does The Bible Require Followers of Jesus to Support the Jewish State of Israel?” After over 200 vigils around the country, in terms of people engaged and fliers distributed, this vigil turned out to be one of our most effective ones, since we started them in Nov. 2002 at the First Southern Baptist Church of Scottsdale [AZ].
I just wrote this comment in response to this Talks at Google video:
“Union with the Divine” requires holiness — “without holiness no one will see the Lord.” Heterosexual lusting is also a sin that will keep us from heaven if we don’t repent. | Jesus stopped the Pharisees from stoning the prostitute, and then he told her: “go and sin no more.” | Many “Christians” are not actual Christians (led by the HOLY Spirit, followers of Christ). HATING ANYONE IS SIN. We must LOVE all. | Here’s the key: This is a spiritual war with unseen but completely real demons. Demons drive homosexuality, and the end result of all unrepentant sin is hell. Homosexuality is a demonically driven sin. We must be free, and can be! “Submit to God; resist the Devil, and he will flee.” FREEDOM!!! I wrote this:
Nathan Albert stood with friends along the Chicago Pride Parade route, bearing signs of apology on behalf of Christians who had failed to represent Christ’s love to the LGBTQ community. Little did he know that millions around the world would soon see him captured in an iconic photograph hugging a man in his underwear (photo: http://goo.gl/jQZXqC). Embracing Love is the story behind that photograph, the story of a musical theatre actor turned pastor who shares personal and pastoral stories of the LGBTQ community. He invites readers past the intimidation of controversy for the sake of embracing people with the love of Jesus.

We know all too well about Christian war fever — that sickening blind worship of the state that elevates George W. Bush to Messiah status and seeks to justify his immoral, unscriptural, unconstitutional war in Iraq by incessantly repeating the mantras “obey the powers that be” and “God is a God of war.” But who is Charles Spurgeon and why should we care what he said about war?
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834—1892) was an English Baptist minister who served as pastor of the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London from 1861 until his death. But Spurgeon was no ordinary minister. He was a pastor, a preacher, a teacher, an author, an editor, and the overseer of a pastor’s college, a Christian literature society, and an orphanage. He is still widely revered today among Baptists (and others as well) as one of the greatest Baptist ministers in history.
Spurgeon preached his first sermon as a teenager and, in 1854, was called to the pastorate of the historic New Park Street Church, Southwark, London. During his thirty-eight-year tenure, the church increased from 232 to over 5,000. During the remodeling of the Park Street chapel to house the growing congregation, Spurgeon preached at the 5,000-seat Exeter Hall, a public auditorium. But because the remodeled chapel was still too small to accommodate the crowds, the church began construction of the Metropolitan Tabernacle, which sat 5,500 and had standing room for 500 more. In the interim, Spurgeon preached to thousands at the Surrey Gardens Music Hall. He was truly one of the most popular preachers in history. When he died in 1892, 60,000 people filed past his casket in the Tabernacle.
Spurgeon lives today through his sermons. From 1855 until his death, his Sunday morning sermons were published weekly. By 1865, Spurgeon’s sermons were selling 25,000 copies every week. They would eventually be translated into more than twenty languages. The sermons were then collected in one volume and reissued at the end of each year in book form. After Spurgeon’s death, the series continued until 1917 using his Sunday evening sermons. The six volumes of the New Park Street Pulpit (1855—1860) and the fifty-seven volumes of the Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit (1861—1917) contain 3,561 sermons, 25 million words, and fill 41,500 pages. Many of these volumes are available online, and most are in print.
Unlike some Baptist preachers today who shamelessly serve as spokesmen or apologists for Bush and his “splendid little war” in Iraq, Spurgeon was not the least bit excited about war and war fever.
Spurgeon on War
Spurgeon’s comments on war can be found in his sermons on a variety of topics. He rarely preached a sermon that was specifically about war. His observations about war are overwhelmingly negative:
Long have I held that war is an enormous crime; long have I regarded all battles as but murder on a large scale (“India’s Ills and England’s Sorrows,” September 6, 1857, Music Hall, Royal Surrey Gardens).
Not from a Christian perspective, but significant insight into how she was filtering out much of what men said based on some personal, hurtful experiences from a few.
“We have to stop expecting to be offended, and instead, we have to truly, openly and sincerely listening. That will lead to a greater understanding of ourselves and others, to having compassion for one another, working together towards solutions, because we are all in this together. And once we do that we can finally heal from the inside out. But it has to start with listening.”
In 2016 Cassie Jayes made a documentary called “The Red Pill” where she explores mens rights issues and the movement behind it, which is absolutely worth seeing: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3686998/

Islam is not the main enemy of Christians, Talmudic Judaism is. Islam teaches Jesus was a Prophet from God, to be respected and honored. Islam also teaches that Moses was a prophet.
Judaism through the Talmud, teaches that Jesus was a false prophet, liar, heretic, bastard, who is boiling in excrement in Hell. Islam is not the main enemy of Christians, Talmudic Judaism is, because Judaism is being sold to Christians as an acceptable alternative to being a Christian, that Jews get to go to Heaven without accepting Jesus, but everyone else must burn in Hell. Christians are being taught that we must support and fight for the nation of Israel against all Muslim nations, and they must occupy land in the Middle East, and they don’t need Jesus to gain salvation. Jesus said the Antichrist would rule the whole world from Jerusalem.
The Zionists who control the leadership of Judaism and Christianity, through religions, governments, and corporations, and most media, are purposely dividing Christians and Muslims, and fueling the hate towards each other to create the cause and affect of the final battle called Armageddon, and they are stoking the flames of the final war with bombings, invasions, occupations, torturing, oppressing, stealing from, and killing the people of mostly Muslim or Arab nations, and reactionary, random acts of self defense called terrorism. Christians must love all people, including Muslims, and agree not to take part in, or support any acts of aggression or oppression in nations. And when the world sees us Christians standing on the principles of peace and non aggression and non intervention, they way Jesus taught us to do, then Christians will be able to win some of them to Jesus with our faith and actions in Jesus’ name.
“There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT” – Romans 8:1.

Master Po: Where is evil? In the rat, whose nature it is to steal grain. Or in the cat? Whose nature it is to kill the rat.
Young Caine: The rat steals. Yet for him the cat is evil.
Master Po: And to the cat, the rat.
Young Caine: Yet master, surely one of them is evil.
Master Po: The rat does not steal. The cat does not murder. Rain falls, the stream flows, a hill remains. Each acts according to its nature.
Young Caine: Then is there no evil for men? Each man tells himself that what he does is good. At least for himself.
Master Po: Grasshopper. A man may tell himself many things. But is a man’s universe made only of himself?
Young Caine: If a man hurts me, and I punish him – perhaps he will not hurt another.
Master Po: And if you do nothing?
Young Caine: He will believe he may do as he wishes.
Master Po: Perhaps. Or perhaps he will learn that some men receive injury, but return kindness.

“No nation can continue to flaunt the laws of God and violate the laws of God and get by with it forever. It can’t happen.
This country is on a collision course with the judgment of God. And the thing that disturbs me personally the most about it is that the ‘Christians’ of this country seem to be the biggest cheerleaders for this crime of aggression. The more people we bomb, the louder ‘Christians’ shout ‘Amen!'”

Message Highlight – Nations That Continue To Violate God Laws Will Suffer Consequences
America is perhaps the greatest perpetrator of the crime of aggression, but Americans believes it to be impervious to retaliation by an Almighty God.

Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious, which are: adultery, sexual immorality, uncleanness, lustfulness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, strife, jealousies, outbursts of anger, rivalries, divisions, heresies, 21 envyings, murders, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these; of which I forewarn you, even as I also forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24Those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts.
6:7 Don’t be deceived. God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that will he also reap. 8 For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption. But he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

US Support for Syria Strikes Rates Low in Historical Context
10 other military actions assessed since 1983 had majority support
Only action with lower approval was Libya in 2011, at 47%
82% of Republicans approve, compared with 33% of Democrats
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Americans’ support for the military strikes against Syria last week is historically low compared with reactions to previous U.S. military actions. Fifty percent of Americans approve of the missile airstrikes, while 41% disapprove. Ten percent have no opinion.
Over Eight in 10 Republicans Approve
Reactions to the missile strikes President Donald Trump ordered are much more positive among Republicans (82%) than among Democrats (33%) nationwide.
Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
“This is a serious sickness,” I believe I just heard the HOLY Spirit say.
This song just gets me! This is part of what’s wrong with country music. And to me, it’s one of the most disgusting songs ever written. It’s the rally cry and justification to annihilate a nation for something the country didn’t do to us. Then Toby publicly has the nerve to claim God’s blessing for the evil we do to them in Jesus’ name.
God is going to bless US for completely ignoring Jesus’ second greatest COMMANDment to love our neighbors as ourselves??
Because of our self-centered, superior attitude and actions, many now not only hate US for using our power to kill them. They also don’t want anything to with our Jesus, whom we claim we’re serving. Many will join Al Qaeda, or immigrate and be our enemy.
How would we like it if a much stronger country regime-changed US, killing many we love — which experts like Joel Skousen think Russia and China may someday do?!! And God won’t let it happen??
We call ourselves a Christian nation while completely ignoring Jesus’ second greatest COMMANDment to love our neighbors as ourselves if people are Muslim.
If we expect God to bless US, then we’re even supposed to love our enemies, as Jesus said — instead of taking the low road — because we can — and it felt good to the flesh, rallying together against a people “who hate US” (and now actually do).
Sean Hannity made it feel good:
The line, “’cause we’ll put a boot in your ass / it’s the American way,” is part of the introduction of the Sean Hannity radio show that is played at the beginning of each hour. (source)
Will we ever learn that Sean Hannity lies too? And why is Toby still singing this song? He should have shelved it long ago, and repented, admitting he was wrong; though, he was probably one of many who wouldn’t even look at the proof that the planes’ jet fuel didn’t take down the towers, and the hijackers weren’t even from Afghanistan, officially.
Why is anyone still listening, and cheering to this disgusting song that should have been shelved long ago, if we had any integrity:

By Toby Keith
Now this nation that I love Has fallen under attack [WTC collapse not Afghani caused, proven – ed.]
A mighty sucker punch came flying in
From somewhere in the back
Soon as we could see clearly
Through our big black eye Man, we lit up your world Like the 4th of July [Afghanistan – ed.]
Hey Uncle Sam [Zionist controlled media did – ed.]
Put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty
Started shaking her fist
And the eagle will fly
Man, it’s going to be hell
When you hear Mother Freedom
Start ringing her bell And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you Brought to you Courtesy of the Red White and Blue
[Verse 2] Justice will be served [‘Justice’??? – ed.]
And the battle will rage
This big dog will fight
When you rattle his cage
And you’ll be sorry that you messed with
The U.S. of A [though Afghanistan didn’t do 9/11 – ed.] `Cause we`ll put a boot in your ass It`s the American way [not God’s way – ed.]
[Spoken] God bless our troops And God bless America [really??? – ed.]
Toby Keith Trump Inauguration 01/19/17 Red White and Blue (The Angry American)
I transcribed this because I think it’s SO IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!!!
As I look back over my life now, and as people look back and think: if they get a diagnosis like stage 4 cancer…. I can only speak for myself….
I start reflecting on a lot of things in my life. Who I need to say ‘I’m sorry’ to? Who I need to do something for? And it is a time of really positive reflection. And I wish that I had done this maybe before I had the diagnosis, maybe 15-30 years ago. And we can all do that.
And I would like to see the year of 2017 be a year of reflection of all of us of our own lives.
And if that means that we need to go back and make some amends, or if we need to go back and do some things that will make our lives even better at this point and their lives better, then it’s time.

I got this word from God for a church founder in Anchorage, 25 years ago, while getting ready to discuss with the then, head pastor what I had recently been shown about why God couldn’t move in our church.
It says a lot about what needs to happen for real Christianity and full revival to occur. And this is also a salvation issue: “There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT.” (Romans 8:1)
This is also the prophecy that inspired my ’93 4GIVNG and ’95 NOHATE license plate — as I was told: “STRONGHOLD of UNFORGIVENESS”:
“Our eyes are full of sawdust. We can’t see clearly to see the kingdom. There is MIGHT and there is POWER and there is GLORY, but it is being withheld until these relationships are made right, until we love our brother enough to feel his hurt deeply and say kind words of salve that heal their souls.
[___] can do this. This is vital. They are necessary. For he must do this for healing to occur. He is a man of integrity in many ways.
Fear must decrease. Love must increase. He will fight and he will win the battle over the stronghold of fear and unforgiveness, sayeth the Lord.”
“It’s crazy how people get uptight, mad, irritated or outright mean just because someone shares an opinion on Facebook that’s contrary to theirs. Lighten up and enjoy some fun, healthy dialogue. If you are that threatened by other’s perspectives, you have much bigger problems. You need to mature and leave insecurity behind. The people who disagree with you aren’t your enemies. But, if they were you’d have to love and bless them anyway.”
