CNN: “Navy SEAL Charles Keating IV, the grandson of savings-and-loan financier Charles Keating Jr.,died in combat against ISIS in northern Iraq, his family said Tuesday.

“He is our family hero in every sense of the word,” cousin Elizabeth Ann Keating told CNN.

Keating, 31, is the third American combat casualty since the U.S. redeployed forces to Iraq in the summer of 2014 to advise local forces and conduct special operations against ISIS. He was an adviser to Kurdish Peshmerga forces fighting ISIS, Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook said in a statement Tuesday.

ObamaCare Has Made The IRS A Shambles

 GEO POLITICS, GLOBAL ECONOMY, National security, New World Order, Prayer  Comments Off on ObamaCare Has Made The IRS A Shambles
Feb 122016

Investors: “The IRS admitted to Congress what many suspect: That its abysmal customer service and failure to protect taxpayer data are because it’s diverted its resources to ObamaCare. Now it wants another billion.

House Republicans were flabbergasted when Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen asked the House Appropriations Committee for another $1 billion for the IRS budget for fiscal 2017, following the $290 million increase he got in fiscal 2016. An extra billion is a 12% beef-up for the agency’s budget.

Seems the customer service is a shambles, with 8 million, or half, of calls from taxpayers seeking to comply with the law going unanswered. And for those who do get through, it takes an average of 23 minutes on hold.”

Opinion: ObamaCare, conceived in lies and bankrupting the nation; IRS mired in scandal, takes the Fifth; Mainstream Press, silent.

Our nation is in need of prayer.

Sunday Post: A New Year's Self-Exam

Job’s lamentation to God: “How many are my iniquities and sins? Make known to me my rebellion and my sin” (Job 13:23).

In Psalm 17:3 David said, “You have tried my heart.… You have tested me and You find nothing.”

Then, in Psalm 26:2 he cried out, “Examine me, O Lord, and try me.” “Test my mind and my heart.”

David prayed for God to examine him, “Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me and know my anxious thoughts; and see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way” (Psalm 139:23-24).

In Lamentations 3:40-43 Jeremiah urged his fellow Israelites, “Let us examine and probe our ways, and let us return to the Lord,” and the Lord challenged Israel to “Consider your ways!” Haggai 1:5-7.

And Paul wrote about the self-examination to be done before partaking of Communion: “…But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup (1 Corinthians 11:28).

What better way to start the new year than in prayer and an inward search into our spiritual life in Christ?

May you be blessed richly during this coming year!

SUNDAY POST: Part Six, "EZEKIEL's SCROLL of a BOOK"

“Now when I looked, there was a hand stretched out to me; and behold, a scroll of a book was in it” Ezekiel 2:9.

The Book of Tears is referred to by David in his Psalm 56 verse 4: “You number my wanderings; Put my tears into Your bottle; Are they not in Your book?” Whether the book referred to is the same book as the Book of Life, or another one, we cannot know. “For now we see

SUNDAY POST: Part 3, The Book of Remembrance

We continue our look at the ‘books’ mentioned in Scripture; those that are mentioned in but are not the 66 stand-alone books of the Bible. This Sunday, we look at The Book of Remembrance spoken of by Malachi 3:16 which records the names of those “who fear the Lord and meditate on His Name.” We hope that the interpretations
