The Washington Post: “CHARLESTON, S.C. — Police are searching for a gunman who opened fire and killed nine people Wednesday night during a prayer service at a historic African American church in downtown Charleston, S.C., in one of the worst attacks on a place of worship in recent memory.

At least one other person was injured in the assault, which police described as a “hate crime.”

Police launched a manhunt for the gunman, described as a clean-shaven white male in his early 20s, who has sandy blond hair and a small build.”

Opinion: This is a time for prayer.

Prayer for the 9 families who lost loved ones

“Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;  Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.  For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-5

Prayer for the members of Emanuel Methodist Episcopal Church

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” Matthew 5:4

Prayer for the city of Charleston

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

Prayer for our nation

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

LGBT Activists Rush Onto Stage To Disrupt March for Marriage Rally

 New World Order, Prayer  Comments Off on LGBT Activists Rush Onto Stage To Disrupt March for Marriage Rally
Apr 272015
 

ssmBreitbart: “Dr. Deborah De Sousa Owens, who along with her husband Rev. William Owens leads CAAP  (Coalition of African-American Pastors) , was the scheduled speaker at this smaller March for Marriage in support of traditional marriage sponsored by the Russellville Tea Party.

Owens, a licensed Church of God in Christ (COGIC) evangelist and missionary, told Breitbart News between 60-70 counter-protesters appeared at the event and at least three LGBT activists ran up onto the stage with her as she was speaking, attempting to disrupt her address by shouting out questions to her, trying to intimidate her.

“I asked the police to remove him,” Owens said, “but they didn’t and I continued speaking, ignoring the interruptions.”

“The group of mostly young people continued harassing our group, and were trying to talk over me and bully me,” she said. “I have never seen anything like it.”

Opinion: Remember back in 1960 when abortion was only for cases of rape, incest, and to save the life of the mother? No one ever explained how killing the child could save the mother… but I digress.

Abortion was to be rare and only in early pregnancy. As the song goes ‘but that was yesterday and yesterday’s gone.’

Enter same-sex marriage. It was supposed to be about being able to leave an estate to a same-sex partner, or visitation rights in a hospital when only family was allowed. ‘Memba that?

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court will hear arguments on the question of marriage in the United States. The final decision is expected in June and if the ruling goes the way it appears, expect a major assault on the Bible and those who preach it.

Prayer is always the right answer.

SUNDAY POST: Put On The Full Armor Of God

fullArmorofGod

Last Sunday we posted about habitual sin, and the control, destructiveness, and misery it causes us.

Our inability to overcome a persistent sin is proof that we have allowed and repeated an offense which satisfies a particular desire in us. Each time it is repeated, it settles more deeply into an ingrained pattern.

It could be something as simple as biting your fingernails to more serious mannerisms/behaviors/disorders such as, drinking alcohol to ‘calm your nerves’, looking at immoral websites, physically abusing someone, etc. These are opposite to the spirit and design of the gospel (the heart).

We are called to “bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ” 2 Corinthians 10:4-5. Our ‘warfare’ is with a spiritual enemy who wishes to cast down any and every argument against the knowledge of God. An enemy of our saving faith in Christ who wants to struggle against our peace in Christ.

We who are followers of Jesus Christ and study His word know when our behavior is disobedient and opposes the Word of God. We have His Holy Spirit nudging our spirit. John 14:26

(Link Fixed)US Declassifies Document Revealing Israel's Nuclear Program

Arutz Sheva: “In a development that has largely been missed by mainstream media, the Pentagon early last month quietly declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document detailing Israel’s nuclear program, a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race, and which the US until now has respected
