freundJPost: “Barack Obama is running scared.

In advance of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress next week about the growing threat of a nuclear Iran, the normally placid president of the United States is suddenly breaking out into a political sweat.

One by one, Obama has been dispatching his minions to deride, denounce and disparage a speech that hasn’t even been given yet. Indeed, President Obama is doing everything in his power to attack the message and the messenger in an attempt to salvage a possible deal with the Iranian ayatollahs.

But in doing so, he runs the risk of stirring up a menace no less frightful: the demon of anti-Semitism.”

Opinion: Oh, but it gets worse. On January 26, Breitbart reported that “five Obama campaign operatives have reportedly arrived in Israel to lead a campaign to defeat the Israeli Prime Minister in upcoming national elections scheduled for March 17.”

The anti-Netanyahu, left wing Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports a group called “One Voice,” reportedly funded by American donors, is paying for the Obama campaign team. That group is reportedly being led by Obama’s 2012 field director Jeremy Bird.

The most important speech of the 21st century is tomorrow. “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you.” Psalm 122:6

American Thinker: “History teaches that entities don’t willingly relinquish power; it didn’t happen in 1776 and it won’t happen now. People are generally quite zealous about increasing their power, though. This returns us to the courts’ usurpations. Do you know where the power of “judicial review” came from? It was declared in the 1803 Marbury v. Madison decision — by the Supreme Court.

That’s right: the Supreme Court gave the Supreme Court the Supreme Court’s despotic power.”

Opinion: The ideological lines between the parties are all but gone.

  1. Abortion – check
  2. Amnesty – check
  3. Obamacare – check
  4. Same-sex marriage – check

Activist judges decide which laws are constitutional and which are not. The president uses executive action to make 5 million new citizens that are in violation of immigration law, and all the while the nation pretends the next election will set America back on the path to freedom.

The writer of Chronicles, Ezra, knew that only prayer could save the Israelites:

Only prayer will save our nation:

“If my people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land” 2 Chronicles 7:14

Last Sunday we wrote about the Tabernacle, established by God as the place where He would meet with the nation of Israel during their time in the Sinai, and until the time of Solomon’s Temple, the first Temple.

“And let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them. According to all that I show you, that is, the pattern of the tabernacle and the pattern of all its furnishings, just so you shall make it” Exodus 25:8-9.

Matthew Henry writes: “… some think that, though there were altars and groves used for religious worship before this, yet there never was any house, or temple, built for sacred uses in any nation before this tabernacle was erected by Moses, and that all the temples which were afterwards so much celebrated among the heathen took rise from this and pattern by it.”

Our Post today is a summary of the most important part of the Tabernacle: the Mercy Seat.

When God revealed the pattern of the tabernacle and the way to approach Him, He also declared exactly where He would meet Moses:

Exodus 25:22 “And there I will meet with you, and I will speak with you from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are on the ark of the Testimony, about everything which I will give you in commandment to the children of Israel.”
 

Once a year, on the Day of Atonement, the high priest would sprinkle blood on the top of the lid between the two angels.  The place where the blood was sprinkled was called the Mercy Seat. As God looked down from above to the Mercy Seat, He saw the blood covering the broken Law, atoning for the sins of the people.

Today, the only thing between us and the Law is the blood of Jesus. God sees His blood and His wrath is removed.

Sin has to be dealt with – or we die.

Today marks the 4th anniversary of this blog. A friend warned me that this sort of thing can get intense and was he ever right. Lee didn’t mention that it would cost me relationships. I have been told that I am too religious. Then there is the book. That is the most difficult part. Most

Sunday Post: A New Year's Spiritual Exam

The beginning of each year is a great time to do a spiritual exam to set the rudder on the ship for the year ahead. Got Questions (.org), a Christian website, does an excellent job of deep theological questions as well as basic, new-believer concerns, and everything else in-between. They are a resource which we use and recommend.
