God's Word  ~  Trusting God  ~  Topical Scripture List  ~  Names of God  ~  Chronologies

"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me,  for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:28-29

"Please pray for God's people around the world!  As you can see in the paragraphs below, cruelties and perversion is spreading in many parts of the world.  Meanwhile, Christians are tortured and killed for refusing to deny our Lord. Yet, countless Christians would rather face death than deny their beloved Lord! .


"Abide in Me and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me."  John 15:4


My Lord asks, "Is there any God besides Me, or is there any other Rock? I know of none.” [Isaiah 44:8]

      Neither do I!  But sometimes I think and act as if there is another Rock -- another solid place to stand, another unshakable support. Yet, I know that He alone must reign in my life. He alone truly knows my heart, my future, and the solution to every struggle. He truly is my one and only Rock!
    Jesus showed us the difference between a wise man and a foolish man. One built his house on a rock, the other on sand. Both faced fierce storms, but when
the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew and burst against the house, one stood firm and the other fell. The wise man followed God's way. But the foolish man just did what was right in his own eyes -- what felt good from a finite human perspective.
     I, too, have heard God’s Word and His call to follow. He compels me to come to Him, follow Him, work with Him, and rest with Him. I will not  build on the shifting sands of the world! Not when my Lord has called me to come and stand on the
unchanging, everlasting Rock - Jesus Christ Himself!
    Knowing well how weak I am, He has reached down to “
lift me up on [that] rock..." For He indeed is “the Rock of my refuge.” I need only "abide in Him," acknowledging that "My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever!" (Psalm 73:26)


Environment.  Pope Francis: ‘Defender of the Pagan Gaia Faith: “I encourage the collaboration between persons and associations of different religions on behalf of an integral ecology,' Francis said, offering good wishes to young people discussing what he described as 'the care of the common house.'.... Pope Francis should be brought in on the fact that the environmental movement genuflects not to God but to Gaia." See Green Lies and Amazing Truths

Moral Corruption.  Schools Implant IUDs in Girls as Young as 6th Grade Without Their Parents Knowing: "...a high school in Seattle, Washington... is now implanting intrauterine devices (IUD), as well as other forms of birth control.... The IUD is known as a long acting reversible contraception, and may even act as an abortifacient. So, a young teen in Seattle can’t get a coke at her high school, but she can have a device implanted into her uterus, which can unknowingly kill her unborn child immediately after conception." See Depravity


Spiritual Warfare.  Catholic Group Exposes Red Influence in the Vatican: "...the American Life League (ALL) has uncovered dramatic evidence of links between the highest levels of the Roman Catholic Church and an international communist group known as the World Social Forum. The evidence suggests overt Marxist influence on the climate change movement that Pope Francis and his top advisers are now embracing.” See Pedophile Call for "A Child's Sexual Bill of Rights"


Hate Speech. They Want To Use ‘Hate Speech Laws’ To Destroy Freedom Of Speech In America: "...these hate speech laws that are being implemented... are not just about preventing speech that promotes violence or genocide against a particular group of people. ...these laws are written in such a way that anyone that says something that 'offends' or 'insults' someone else is guilty of 'hate speech'. ...If I say something that offends or insults you, there is a very good chance that I have just committed 'hate speech.'"


Moral Corruption. DOJ wants to legalize bestiality, pedophilia: "Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay says not only is all hell breaking loose after the Supreme Court’s ruling on gay marriage, but we’re on the fast track to legalizing '12 new perversions,' including pedophilia and bestiality. ... He also pointed to a 'secret memo' from the Department of Justice when Malzberg if the tax exempt status of religious institutions could be pulled if they teach against gay marriage. ...

    "They’re now going to go after 12 new perversions, things like bestiality, polygamy, having sex with little boys and making that legal. Not only that, but they have a whole list of strategies to go after the churches, the pastors, and any businesses that tries to assert their religious liberty. This is coming and it’s coming like a tidal wave.” See The Fall and Rise of Human Violence

Spreading Evil.  Nigerian School girls slit Christian's throat under orders from Boko Haram: "Schoolgirls that have been abducted by the Nigeria-based Boko Haram Muslim terror group are now being seen on the battlefield fighting on behalf of the terror entity.
     "... the young female soldiers are now being used as foot soldiers for the group, with some being used to 'terrorize other captives' and 'carrying out killings themselves.' ... '17-year-old Miriam, who escaped Boko Haram captivity, said that the Boko Haram jihadis forced Christian men to lay down then told the girls to 'cut their throats.' 'Amnesty estimates that more than 2,000 girls have been abducted by the militant organization since the beginning of 2014." See The UN Plan for Global Migration

Religion, Pope,  Nature & Control. Pope Francis heads to Iowa to press republicans on marriage Climate: "Roman Catholic leaders in the early voting state of Iowa will call...  on candidates for president to follow the teachings of Pope Francis and focus as much on the environment and income inequality in 2016 as they have in past elections on opposing gay marriage and abortion.... The push from Pates and other bishops in Iowa threatens to disrupt the historically reliable alliance of evangelical Christians and conservative Roman Catholic voters, putting pressure on Republicans who have leaned on their religious faith to guide them on social issues. See UNESCO's Declaration on the Role of Religion

Signs of the Times. The Vatican Wants the Temple Mount Taken From the Jews: "In 2000, speaking in a mosque in Palestinian-held Ramallah, Yasser Arafat declared, 'No one will succeed in removing us from our land, including Jerusalem, and the Palestinian flag will fly from the Temple Mount and from the churches in Jerusalem.' Managing change
      "Arafat could say that because he had won the Vatican's support for his terroristic strategy. On June 26th, 2015, the Vatican signed its first treaty with the 'State of Palestine'. Since then, the Holy See’s taking a stance as the ally of the heads of the Palestinian Authority in the place most holy to the Jewish people, became almost a fait accompli....
     "What will the Jews do...? Here's what they should do: Start taking control of the Temple Mount. It will be harder to chase them away if they do that." See Jews in Holy Land? What Jews? 

War.  ISIS Vows to Conquer Gaza, Israel & Palestinian Authority [May need to click on X to open]:  "ISIS... – not satisfied with the way Hamas terrorists have governed the Gaza region – has decided to seize control of the enclave itself. And the terrorist organization says it does not plan to stop there, either — the group apparently issued a video statement Tuesday warning of its intent to conquer the State of Israel and the Palestinian Authority as well..." See  The Muslim Brotherhood and plots to exterminate Jews

War.  Ramadan Attacks Prompt US to Sound Terror Alarm: "This weekend, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security sent an alert to 18,000 law enforcement agencies. It warned of possible ISIS-inspired attacks in the United States over the Fourth of July holiday weekend.... Another cause for concern is a new social media campaign by ISIS. It's currently blasting at least 90,000 messages a day worldwide, urging mass murder. It's just the latest in an on-going campaign to recruit young people in the United States."  

Religion? What kind?  Pope Francis: ‘Defender of the Pagan Gaia Faith’: "Pontificating from his window in a Vatican palazzo on Sunday, Pope Francis bypassed tens of thousands of pilgrims and tourists, to lavish with gushing praise a few hundred activists who had marched to St. Peter’s Square under the banner ‘One Earth, one family”....

     “I encourage the collaboration between persons and associations of different religions on behalf of an integral ecology,” Francis said, offering good wishes to young people discussing what he described as 'the care of the common house.'

     "... the environmental movement genuflects not to God but to Gaia." See Heresy in high places

Religious Corruption. Climates and Pontiffs change, Christ never does: "On an undeniable roll, man-made global warming/climate change activists can legitimately present the greatest coup in their decades-long history: The Pope, social media’s top public figure, has thrown in with them. In President Barack Obama’s ‘Brave New World’ world where transitioning over to genders and colours with which you weren’t born is a growing trend, Pope Francis is now the world’s prime global warming/climate change activist.... "

     "...under Francis, the papacy has drifted over from religion to politics.... It is one thing for Pope Francis to throw in with the propaganda of the far left on global warming. Quite another to star in a YouTube that ridicules Jesus Christ." See Depravity

Obama's Background.  Scholar Speaks on Obama’s Red Mentor: "The black scholar who previously revealed Obama’s personal relationship with Communist Party operative Frank Marshall Davis is now speaking in detail on the record. ... the major U.S. media ignored the relationship and the matter of whether Davis had influenced Obama’s politics, and even had recruited him to the Marxist cause. It was apparent that the media did not want to publicize anything that might inhibit the election of the first black president in the U.S....

     "Obama makes at least 22 explicit references to 'Frank' in his memoir... and in a recently discovered 1995 speech promoting his book acknowledged that Davis had 'schooled' him on the subject of white racism.... The Communist Party USA backed Obama for president in 2008, and in 2012 said his re-election was 'absolutely essential.'"

Lawlessness.  'Great Concern' About Terror: Congressmen, British PM Warn of Attacks: "McCaul said the concern stems from a 'confluence' of events: 'ISIS spokesman calling for jihad during Ramadan, which is happening right now. You have the one-year anniversary of the caliphate or Islamic State; and now we have the Fourth of July coming up, which is one of the holidays we celebrate that they like to target this sort of thing and these anniversaries..." See The fall and rise of human violence

Lawlessness.  Mark Levin: ‘Our Constitutional Process is Dead’: “Our Constitutional system, our Constitutional process is dead. ... Congress cannot delegate parts of the Constitution to other parts of the government, nor can other parts of the government seize those parts that it may want.... And today, all three branches of the federal government legislate: Congress, the executive, and the courts.”


"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? ... Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us..." Romans 8:35, 37

"Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

When enemy forces threatened to attack God's people, [King] Jehoshaphat simply turned His eyes and heart to His faithful Lord and expressed his faith:

“O Lord God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven, and do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations, and in Your hand is there not power and might, so that no one is able to withstand You?
     ...we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, BUT OUR EYES ARE UPON YOU." 2 Chronicles 20:6, 12
