December 15, 2012 journal, God told Moses to speak to the rock but he smote the rock and he lost the goal of his life to reach the Promised Land. It is so much easier to speak to the rock than to hit a rock and bite the dust. We can all use some of that learning process. Adam-and-Eve ate of the forbidden fruit under the influence of Satan the Serpent and lost the Garden of Eden. Surely God would not punish them so severely for what seemed to be a small violation of his orders but he did in their disobedience to him. So, always think twice before you violate God's holiness and His Holy Word of truth and righteousness as recorded for our benefit and preserved for us through the ages. The Holy Spirit will show us the meaning and inspire us to keep our minds on the Lord daily as a table of good food the best in life for our enjoyment. If we love God we will serve him and give our lives to Him in true worship giving praise to him continually for breath, knowledge and wisdom. Everything we have does not come from Wal-Mart and we can survive without Wal-Mart or any earthly things. Jonah survived being in the belly of a whale for 3 days and others were raised from the dead. Jonah was disobedient and that's what got him swallowed up. What happened to Adam & Eve, to Moses, to Jonah and to the disciples was not a death sentence in terms of eternity, it was just a temporary setback and it was an education for their future. We may need to pay a price but not in terms of money. When one man saw the miracles the disciples did in Christ's name he offered to pay money for that gift and of course he would resell it and be rich. What a shame that today the evangelists are selling it. The Disciples answered him saying, it is not for sale. "Thy money perishes with thee". Thy heart is not right in the side of God- From the Book of Acts in the New Testament chapter 8 beginning with verse one KJV. "And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles. 2And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him. 3As for Saul, he made havoc of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison. 4Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word. 5Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them. 6And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. 7For unclean but crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed. 8And there was great joy in that city. 9But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: 10To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. 11And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries. 12But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. 13Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done. 14Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: 15Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: 16(For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) 17Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost. 18And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, 19Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands; he may receive the Holy Ghost. 20But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. 21Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. 22Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. 23For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity. 24Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the Lord for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me." Another shooting in Oregon in a shopping mall with a big violent weapon as North Korea shoots off a long range missile toward the Philippines. We've all chosen war rather than peace by shooting at the rock with the churches approval rather than speaking to the rock. Now our actions have backfired. We would not meet friendly with our enemies except to fire on them with our weapons superiority like Al Capone shot up Chicago paid the price. Finally be Governor of Michigan signed a Right to Work bill without union membership. But, the auto industry is long gone. He locked the barn door after the horse was stolen. America thinks its getting by without God but is sinking everyday in quicksand and lost. Satan thrives on our disobedience. Let us prepare every day to meet the Lord our God. They train our soldiers to assassinate overseas people then when they come home they are predisposed to killing sprees or confined to mental health institutions for their entire lives and that is understandable. But, why are we teaching people to kill on a wholesale basis? The truth is, it is not us the US is the foreign agent that considers our blood to be wasted. The latest shooting may have been trained on television considering the terror they teach. isdivc "It seems the concept of privacy, as envisioned in the Constitution, is being stood on its head. Privacy of the citizens was understood to be inherent and not to be violated by the government unless there are reasonable grounds for suspicion presented to and affirmed by a judge. Now the concept seems to be that a government agency. Especially security agencies, can spy on citizens whenever the government pleases and, if you're not doing anything wrong, you don't have to worry. Of course, if you say the "wrong" word in an email or on the phone, of course, it will be detected by computer network sniffers and you may get 'special attention' as a possible terrorist. The burden then shifts to you to prove a negative, i.e. that you are not part of a terrorist network. This seems a complete perversion of what the Founders had in mind." Turn off the television and the mobile phones to stay clear of the listening devices and those who are trying to rob you electronically. There is no safe hiding place for people to escape the information age. There are cops and robbers on every corner and there is corruption in Washington and in every state in the nation. Do not believe what you hear. Do not believe any thing on television and do not take a flu shot for your own protection. I pray God to inform the Church and deliver us from this Antichrist universal domination.
