Joy in the Morning

Psalm 30:5 – Joy Comes In The Morningbut his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.

This is such a comforting Psalm, assuring us of a brighter future. I specifically enjoy every morning! I was informed by Specialists eight years ago that I had five years left to live at most. That puts me about three years past my terminal date right now! We are a family of faith and trust God. We also believe that many in the Medical Profession are gifts from God. We, (My wife & I) trust both! We accept the reality of the work on our behalf, but direct most of our appreciation to the Lord. So, in the morning when I arise, my first feeling is a deep and awesome realization that I’m here for another day. “Joy comes every Morning”.

It dawned on me this morning that his simple truth has always existed for everyone! As has often been said.. “This is the first day of the rest of our lives”, God Bless You today!

Debate???

Last Nights Debate:

What happened?

There is a lot of discussion about who won and who lost. I seriously think there were no winners or losers, except the American Voters who lost!

I don’t blame either of the candidates, or the moderator for the loss of control and order.

I do blame whoever was in charge of the “process”! As the Moderator switched from one candidate to the other, he always did two things; 1) he asked for a response to what the opposition candidate just said, and 2) he-posed his own question asking the candidates to respond to both in two minutes, which is impossible!!

This is the exact OPPOSITE of what the voter deserved and/or expected. One point at a time with a longer well explained statement was NEEDED by America.

Lousy Debate Management!!

Hope you are NOT one of these!

Acts: 28:26-27

“”‘Go to this people, and say, “You will indeed hear but never understand, and you will indeed see but never perceive.” For this people’s heart has grown dull, and with their ears they can barely hear, and their eyes they have closed; lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them.’”

Paul quotes a Prophet to those who will not believe.

Why do Men Lust for and Dishonor Their Bodies?

Here’s What the Bible Says;

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.” For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.”

The Salty Sailer and the Fireman

“THE SALTY SAILOR and the FIREMAN”

The views this mother has about Donald Trump are much like many other people.  Her characterization of Trump as the “Salty Sailor” or as “The Fireman” paint an excellent picture!!  She has written many great books about her son and family.  This is a Comment from KAREN VAUGHN, Mother of Aaron Vaughn, Navy Seal.

“Sometimes God uses the no-nonsense, salty sailor to get the job done.  Appreciating what the man is doing doesn’t mean we worship the salty sailor or even desire to be like the salty sailor.  It doesn’t even mean God admires the salty sailor.  Maybe He just knows he’s necessary for such a time as this.

I believe with all my heart that God placed that salty sailor in the White House to give this nation one more chance in November 2020.  Donald Trump is what he is – and he is still the man he was before the election – and without guilt. I very much admire what that salty sailor is accomplishing.

He’s not like me.  That’s okay with me.  I don’t want to be like him.  I will never behave like him.  I know we’ve NEVER had a man like him lead our nation before.  It’s crazy and a little mind-blowing at times, but I can’t help admire the stamina and ability he has – acting with his heart rather than a calculated, PC, think tank-screened, carefully edited script.  I still believe that is WHY he became our President and WHY he’s been able to handle a landslide of adversity and STILL pass unprecedented amounts of good legislation for our country AND do great works for MANY other nations, including Israel.

I’m THRILLED with what he’s doing for my nation, for the cause of Christ (whether intentional or unintentional, doesn’t matter to me), and for the concept of rebuilding America and putting her FIRST.  I will not be ashamed of my position because others don’t see him through the same lens.

Should it matter to me if a fireman drops an f-bomb while he’s pulling me from a burning building?  Would I really care about what came out of his mouth in those moments?  Heck no!  I’d CARE about what he was DOING.  He wasn’t sent there to save my soul and I’m not looking to him for spiritual guidance.  All I’m thinking in those moments is, “Thank you, GOD, for sending the fireman.”  AND DONALD TRUMP IS OUR FIREMAN.

I’ll soon post this article again for those who still might not understand me.  This man is crass.  Okay.  He’s not careful with what he says.  Okay.  You feel offended that he’s not a typical statesman.  Okay.  But he is DOING THE JOB of rebuilding the nation Karen’s son died for… the nation I feared was on a fast track to becoming a hopeless cause.

Forgive me if I’m smiling.”

In What Spirit Do They Come To You?

“By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.”

FCC Chairman: Chinese 5G a ‘Major Concern’ for United States

Pai raises concern over national security—including surveillance and espionage—connected to Chinese 5G products

“In a sense the social credit score being utilized along with such internet censorship and thought con- trol—derived from CCP criteria—is the digital equivalent of tattooing

serial codes on the foreheads of Chinese citizens and those peoples unfortunate enough to live in foreign authoritarian regimes who are now importing this technology of surveillance, control, and brutal repression.”

In his remarks, Pai framed the discussion about 5G and the United States’ security as one in which the nation “cannot afford to take a risk and hope for the best. The stakes are too high.”

“For too many years, some have dismissed this concern as hypothetical, or as a smokescreen for protectionism. But if there is a silver lining to the episodes of the past month, it is that millions of Americans have now come to understand that the threats posed by the Chinese Communist Party are comprehensive and all too real.”

Meanwhile, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said in an interview with Bloomberg on Nov. 3 that licenses would be coming “very shortly” for U.S. companies to sell components to Huawei amid hopes of reaching the “phase one” trade deal with China.

Our Christian Relationship

It is difficult for me to devote even a short span of time to being still in thought, and just listen. To wait for God to guide me. To keep my own thoughts about today’s needs and possible calamities from racing through my mind. Yet it remains as one of my daily goals get to a place where I do enter God’s rest and quietly live my busy day in a constant state of Expectation. Today, I once again resolve to continually and constantly expect God’s presence and to listen to the Holy Spirit that I might receive those blessings which I know He has for me.

If YOU Have Committed to Christ, God Is Trying to Give You Gifts!

“I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore it says, “When he ascended on high he led a host of captives, and he gave gifts to men.” (In saying, “He ascended,” what does it mean but that he had also descended into the lower regions, the earth? He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.) And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭4:1-16‬ ‭ESV‬‬

https://www.bible.com/59/eph.4.1-16.esv

Note From Bob:

The gifts he wants you to have are for you to use in the building of His Kingdom. (Which Jesus introduced When He First Came)

1. Are you Open to receiving those gifts?

2. What are the gifts He wants you to utilize?

3. Are you prepared to follow His “Great Commission” and use those gifts to build His Kingdom?

4. Or.. are you one of the many believe that your life is “All about you” ?

I believe we believers will be judged by how well we received and used these gifts. (When Jesus Comes Back to Receive us Again)

Are You a Follower of Jesus.

“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”

‭‭Colossians‬ ‭3:12-17‬ ‭ESV‬‬

https://www.bible.com/59/col.3.12-17.esv

In this verse, Jesus was talking to those who would be building His Church while listening to the Holy Spirit. He Called them to edify those God has called, to encourage and to unite. Surely there are ways to build an efficient Local Church in Love, without offending those God has brought to the scene! We all need to pray for those who “lead” the Churches. Pray that we don’t do damage to the work God has already done.
