The Empty Tomb.

The Empty Tomb

We have before us today the open sepulcher, the bewildered alarm it caused, and the faith it both elicited and excited. John’s Gospel comes to a conclusion in chapter 20 with a proclamation of Jesus’ victory over death and then is followed in chapter 21 by an epilogue.

Each Gospel writer stresses certain aspects of the discovery of the empty tomb. John began his resurrection story with a testimony of how he came to personal faith in the Resurrection by considering the evidence found in the open tomb. The empty tomb bore witness to a physical or bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Contrary to cult heresy our Lord was raised in the same body He was crucified in. He is risen.

“For in Him we live and move and have our being…”

ISLAM WAS BANNED FROM THE USA IN 1952

Islam was Banned from the USA in 1952 but You’re Not Supposed to Know It!

ISLAM WAS BANNED FROM THE USA IN 1952 but Obama doesn’t want you to know that, nor does he respect or uphold US law.

The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization and nationality for the United States.

That Act, which became PUBLIC Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of aliens to the US and remains in effect today.

Among the many issues it covers, one in particular found in Chapter 2, Section 212, is the prohibition of entry in to the US if the alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by force, violence or by other unconstitutional MEANS.”

This, by its very definition, rules out Islamic immigration to the United States but this law is being ignored by the White House.

Islamic immigration to the United States would be prohibited under this law because the Koran, Sharia Law and the Hadith all require complete submission to Islam which is antithetical to the United States GOVERNMENT, the Constitution and to the Republic.

All Muslims who attest that the Koran is their life’s guiding principal subscribe to submission to Islam and its form of government.

Now the politically correct crowd would say that Islamists cannot be prohibited from entering the United States because Islam is a ‘religion.’

WHETHER it is a ‘religion’ is immaterial because the law states that aliens who are affiliated with any organization that advocates the overthrow of our GOVERNMENT are prohibited.

Public Law 414 – June 27, 1952

“THE ADMINISTRATION IS BREAKING THE LAW”

by Kevin Cannon, We the People Alabama, ©2015

The text of the 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act is on the website of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)

(Dec. 8, 2015) — The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and nationality for the United States. That act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of Aliens to the US and remains in effect today. Among the many issues it covers, one in particular, found in Chapter 2 Section 212, is the prohibition of entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by “force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.” This, by its very definition, rules out Islamic immigration to the United States, but this law is being ignored by the White House.

The law prohibits entry of “Aliens who the consular officer or the Attorney General knows or has reason to believe seek to enter the United States solely, principally, or incidentally to engage in activities which would be prejudicial to the public interest, or endanger the welfare, safety, or security of the United States.” It also prohibits the entry of Aliens who are members of or affiliated with any organization that advocates or teaches, the overthrow by force, violence, or other unconstitutional means of the US or of all forms of law, and Aliens who publish, circulate and distribute materials teaching or advocating the overthrow by force, violence or other unconstitutional means of the US Government or of all forms of law.

Islamic immigration to the US would be prohibited under this law because the Koran, Sharia Law and the Hadith all require complete submission to Islam, which is antithetical to the US government, the Constitution, and to the Republic. All Muslims who attest that the Koran is their life’s guiding principle subscribe to submission to Islam and its form of government. Now the political correct crowd would say that Islamists cannot be prohibited from entering the US because Islam is a religion. Whether it is a religion is immaterial because the law states that Aliens who are affiliated with any “organization” that advocates the overthrow of our government are prohibited. It also prohibits those who distribute literature that advocates the overthrow of our country, which would include the Koran.

In fact, there are many verses in the Koran that command Islamists to kill those who do not submit to allah and the prophet. If Congress so desired to hold the White House accountable to the current immigration of refugees (which also must comply with the law), it has the Immigration and Nationality Act to cite. The Administration is breaking that law. The question is “Does Congress have the political will to do something about it?”

To read the law, go to this link and scroll down to Chapter 2, Section 212:

Time to drain the swamp!  

 

 

Do you want to know a secret?

The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant. My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for He shall pluck my feet out of the net. Psalm 25:14-15.

In all era’s godly men and women have practiced the fear of the Lord. The Scriptures have a lot to say about the fear of the Lord.

  • It is “clean enduring forever” (Ps.19:9).
  • It can be learned (Ps.34:11).
  • It is the “beginning of wisdom” and the “beginning of knowledge” (Ps.111:10; Prov. 1:7).psalm25-14-15

Our text reveals several promises to the one who fears the Lord:

  • Guidance: “Him shall He teach in the way that He chooses” (Ps.25:12).
  • Spiritual prosperity: “He himself shall dwell in prosperity” (ps.25:13).
  • Future posterity: “his descendants shall inherit the earth” (Ps. 25:13).
  • Divine confidant: “The secret of the Lord is with them” (Ps.25:14).
  • Covenant: “He will show them His covenant” (ps.25:14).
  • Deliverance: “He shall pluck my feet out of the net” (Ps.25:15).

God reveals His secret council in close friendships, as He did to Abraham who feared the Lord (Gen. 18:17-19), and as He did to the apostles (John 15:15).

 

Justification through the Blood, Sanctification through the Spirit.

He-is-Risen

Being justified freely by his grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God: to declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. Romans 3:24-26 KJV.

Redemption, apolutrosis, Strong’s #629. “To deliver by paying a price.” The N.T. records the fulfillment of the O.T. types and prophecies of redemption through the sacrifice of Christ. The completed truth is set forth in the three words which are translated redemption:

  1. Agorazo, “to purchase in the market.” The underlying thought is of a slave market. The subjects of redemption are “sold under sin” (Romans 7:14), but are moreover, under sentence of death (Ezk. 18:4; John 3:18, 19; Rom.3:19; Gal.3:10). And the purchase price is the blood of Redeemer who dies in their stead (Gal.3:13; 2Cor.5:21; Mat. 20:28; Mk. 10:45; 1 Tim. 2:6; 1Pet.1:18).
  2. Exagorazo, “to buy out of the market.” The redeemed are never again to be exposed to sale.
  3. Lutro, “To loose,” “To set free by paying a price (John 8:32; Gal.4:4,5, 31,5:31Rom.8:21). Redemption is by sacrifice and by power (Ex. 14:30); Christ paid the price, The Holy Spirit makes deliverance actual in experience (Rom.8:2).

He is our Redemption, He is Risen, let us rejoice.

Obama & The Human Stain: Or How Political Correctness Gave America a Con-Man Presidentnar in chief

By Kelly OConnell  February 13, 2011

The Human Stain, Philip Roth’s seminal novel regarding Political Correctness, racism, and the insipid hypocrisy of leftist morality, is a fitting backdrop to Barack Obama’s improbable presidency. In the story, Professor Coleman Silk, a half-Black Jewish professor, posing as a White man, is taken down by the mechanical application of PC rules to an accidental insult he gave to two African-Americans.

Now, we can introduce the 800-pound donkey in the room. Let’s ask a simple question: Could Barack have been elected president without the doctrine known as Political Correctness?

Or is simply to ask the question an unforgivable act of racism? In fact, the vast majority of Americans realize no person as inexperienced, untested, wildly liberal, or of such questionable past could ever have hoped to be elected without some kind of uncanny boost. But what is the result of this presidency based on nonsensical ideological doctrine? And what can be done to fight off the rise of the unscrupulous, unethical, incompetent and unqualified spore of the PC movement? This is the question addressed in this essay.

  1. The Human Stain

In brief, the novel The Human Stain depicts a professor who twists ethnicity to his advantage, then was ironically tagged a racist when he made an innocent remark deemed anti-Black. Here is one writer’s summary of The Human Stain:

Professor Coleman Silk is driven from his position as Dean of Faculty at a small, New England liberal-arts school called Athena College because of a remark willfully misconstrued as racist. Coleman, a professor of classics, wonders why he has never seen two of his students in class. “Do they exist or are they spooks?” he asks his class. The absentees are, of course, black, and a decorous mob of the politically correct immediately launches itself at Coleman’s throat, despite his honest protests that he had used the word only in its primary signification, as a synonym for “ghosts.”

Roth’s tome is well-worth a read. The underlying premise of the story is electric—the implicit hypocrisy of Political Correctness against the backdrop of sin, ie the human stain, making for powerful, topical drama. Barack is like Coleman because both hid their true ethnic roots to gain political advantage. For example, Barack is arguably only half Black. He masks his White roots to gain leverage on opponents.

We are left with the question in The Human Stain, of whether the ambitious and aged Silk could have risen while still sharing his true racial history with his colleagues. Even his own family is unaware of his true identity. Likewise, could Barack have ever been elected without a pro-minority bias, egged-on by a PC media; further—could he possibly retain over 40% support today despite a wholly flaccid and injurious reign? Common sense says, “No!”

  1. What is Political Correctness, From Where Did It Arise?
  2. Cultural Marxism

The idea behind Political Correctness was hatched by a group of progressive German academics, the Frankfurt School, before WWII when they relocated to America to escape Hitler’s wrath. They realized Marx was wrong—the poor were not ready to revolt and throw off Capitalism for a property-less society. These Marxists decided the only way to create the society Marx envisioned was by subverting its institutions by misinformation, propaganda and seduction of the mentally unformed. Writes one expert,

If we look at it analytically, if we look at it historically, we quickly find out exactly what it is. Political Correctness is cultural Marxism. It is Marxism translated from economic into cultural terms. It is an effort that goes back not to the 1960s and the hippies and the peace movement, but back to World War I. If we compare the basic tenets of Political Correctness with classical Marxism, the parallels are very obvious.

  1. Elements of Political Correctness

William Lind explains the Elements of Political Correctness:

  1. Both Marxism and Political Correctness are totalitarian ideologies, ie they allow no dissent and claim ultimate truth which people are then forced to follow.
  2. Political Correctness, aka Cultural Marxism, claims all history is determined by power. Nothing else matters.
  3. In Political Correctness certain groups are good—feminist women, (non-feminist women don’t exist) blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals. These groups are “victims,” defined as “good” despite how they act. White males are categorized as automatically evil.
  4. Political Correctness relies on expropriation, ie arm-twisting use of the government to recover what was “stolen” from them.

III. The Obama Presidency, Unfit at Any Speed

  1. Our Stillborn Napoleon

Obama’s incompetence has become so well attested; it’s reached apocryphal status. No matter what kind of imbecility is attributed to Barack, the average American would tend to believe it. But how did this transition of perception occur? How did one so touted as a super-competent, “messianic” mega-genius fall so utterly, so quickly?Obama_NapoleonBellyHandCrM

According to Occam’s Razor, the likeliest explanation is that, whatever his IQ, Barack is, on a practical, real-world level—a staggering cretin. For example, he’s never taken note of the fact that socialism and Marxism always fail, and kill millions of the innocent along the way. How was one elected with all the fanfare of a Heisman winner, yet be such a zero? This can really only be explained by pointing out that Obama’s instinct for incompetence was masked by his lack of real leadership experience, which would have exposed his tragic instincts.

  1. The Secular “Messiah”

How on earth did the Intelligentsia ever come to the conclusion Barack was anything more than a conceited, unenlightened, journeyman political hack? The fact Obama was a dyed-in-the-wool liberal/ Marxist made his elitist backers think of their own genius. Barack’s visceral socialism merely proved to the Ivy Leaguers and media drones he was a fetal Aristotle or freeze-dried Isaac Newton. Just add a presidency, and out would wriggle Obama Buddha from his Harvard Law Review chrysalis, ready to rule the world.

But, having been coddled and given every advantage by the establishment, Barack responded not by growing into each task, but by learning to be a con artist. That is, for every special position or opportunity Obama was handed, instead of seeing it as a challenge and chance to grow, he responded by raising his con-man act another notch. So by the time Barack reached the US presidency, 100 days after election to the US Senate, he was qualified for only a few things. These were: Speechifying, with a special emphasis on moral outrage; Marxist logic, in all its anti-intuitive convolution; and doing his con-man job of pretending to know everything as the African American Buddha.

Politically Correct special status belongs to such meritorious individuals as women, Blacks, or gays. Barack’s inclusion is described in a Los Angeles Times’ op-ed penned by a liberal writer trying to explain Obama’s come-from-nowhere appeal:

Obama is running for an equally important unelected office, in the province of the popular imagination—the “Magic Negro.” The Magic Negro is a figure of postmodern folk culture. “He has no past; he simply appears one day to help the white protagonist.”

He’s there to assuage white “guilt” (i.e., the minimal discomfort they feel) over the role of slavery and racial segregation in American history, while replacing stereotypes of a dangerous, highly sexualized black man with a benign figure for whom interracial sexual congress holds no interest.

This op-ed also fostered an irreverent spoof by Rush Limbaugh.

  1. Obama & Herman Melville’s The Confidence Man
  2. Melville’s Confidence Man

Herman Melville, in his last major work: The Confidence ManHis Masquerade, well plumbs the psyche of the professional trickster. Melville tells a colorful tale of a con-artist traveling aboard a riverboat in the mid-19th century down the Mississippi. The protagonist first charms, then cheats his fellow passengers. The Confidence Man begs the question: In whom can we safely place our confidence?

The story may have been written after Melville read the New York Post account titled Arrest of the Confidence Man, of “William Thompson, whose brazen deceptions ushered the term “confidence man” into the American vocabulary.” The story ran in 1849, a few years before Herman’s publication date of 1856.

Melville’s story is more a study of how the con-man’s victims react, than the criminal himself. Each person is psychologically sized up, won over to the evil doer’s confidences, and then robbed. And much like with Obama, the scam could not be pulled off without well-meaning, but fatuously naive people ready to be conned.

  1. Sam Vaknin’s Diagnosis of Obama’s Malignant Narcissism

Dr. Sam Vaknin is the author of Malignant Self LoveNarcissism Revisited. He famously diagnosed Barack as having a serious mental disorder, being a full-blown malignant narcissist. (A fascinating interview with Vaknin on Obama is found here: onetwothreefourfiveHis description of the Narcissist:

Feels grandiose and self-important; Is obsessed with fantasies of unlimited success, fame, fearsome power or omnipotence, unequalled brilliance; Firmly convinced that he or she is unique; Requires excessive admiration, adulation, attention and affirmation—or, failing that, wishes to be feared and to be notorious; Feels entitled. Demands automatic and full compliance with his unreasonable expectations for special priority treatment; Devoid of empathy. Is unable or unwilling to identify with the needs of others; Behaves arrogantly and haughtily. Feels superior, omnipotent, omniscient, invincible, immune, “above the law”, and omnipresent (magical thinking). Rages when frustrated, contradicted, or confronted by inferiors.

  1. Summary

So, Americans have the worst of all possible worlds. First, the poseur Barack was able to slip into the world’s highest office on the wings of a false, Marxist creed, Political Correctness. Second, Obama had spent his entire life learning how to pretend he is competent, effective, and even brilliant—while being continually advanced. But, instead of learning how to lead, he merely aped the outward traits of successful people. This left him particularly vulnerable to crises, since during normal times his leadership might go unnoticed, whereas during times of peril a leader’s quick decisions can make the difference between life and death. And so we observed Barack play golf while the Gulf Oil Spill hemorrhaged petrol for months.

Obama’s propensity to pretend he was qualified for various posts, despite any training, developed until he was a full-fledged con artist. This was perfectly symbolized by accepting the Nobel Peace Prize after 11 days of presidential eligibility, unaware this exposed him as a habitual fraud. But even his most recent actions, after two years of ineffectual service, were inane. He backed a radical Islamic sect, who favors Sharia’s Islamic law—the Muslim Brotherhood, after abandoning one of America’s most important allies in the Middle East, in the name of “democracy.” This reinforced perceptions of suspect analytic skills, a perpetual orientation towards radical Marxism, and default towards reactionary Islam.

Finally, Obama’s likely categorization as a Malignant Narcissist is unnerving because when conditions are most dire, we can expect the worst from Obama as a leader. We have already seen, even after getting repudiated in a gruesome election, Barack still demands hard leftist policies. And for all these reasons, he must be impeached from office for the survival of the American Republic.

What do you think?

 

 

Obeying the Holy Spirit in the call to Deliver.

Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:1,2 NKJVDeliverance-1

This passage directs qualified, spiritually equipped believers to be available to minister restoration to fellow believers who have fallen aside or been trapped or bound by sin.

This topic is going to come to the forefront in the body of Christ as the days get darker. Far too many Christians are squeamish and in fear when this topic is mentioned. And why is that? “Don’t scare the sheep” is the motto that is prevalent in far too many fellowships.  Recently a Pastor of forty years admitted he had never dealt with a demonic spirit. What would these so called Pastors do when a person’s vocal cords are held by an unclean spirt making the person not able to confess one’s sin?

Far too many churches are so caught up in the latest entertainment provided by the Laodicean church.

So, how are brethren to help one trapped in sin? The answer is within you, ask the Holy Spirit to show you how.

John 11:44 illustrates this principle of restoration freeing the bound/trapped/fallen. Following Lazarus’s being raised from the dead, he is still encumbered with his grave clothes—a man with a new lease on life, still needing release from the trappings of the past (the linen strips—grave clothes).

Note that Jesus told His disciples to “Loose him, and let him go,” entrusting the completion of the miracle He began to care and ministry of those He assigned. Today, Jesus Christ still entrusts the reborn/forgiven soul to ministry of caring disciples wherever or whenever bondages residual to an individual’s past threaten his or her growth in the family of God.

In one’s new life, forgiveness of all sin is secured instantly through justification by faith in Christ, But additional ministry is often needed to help with breaking old sin patterns called structures.

The law of Christ is to love one another as He loves us. “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” John 13:34.

What Inner Healing is

What Inner Healing is.

Pastor Manny

“God’s methods are many, His principals few, the methods may vary, the principles never do.” Al  Ells

Inner healing or, more accurately deep-level healing is a ministry in the power of the Holy Spirit aimed at bringing healing to the whole person as expressed in the Hebraic  understanding of wholeness.  David expressed it this way: “Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts, and in the hidden part You make me to know wisdom.” Psalm 51:6.

From that standpoint we are provided a much closer understanding in the Greek method of expressing wholeness from compartments, of our Tri-part being as expressed in 1 Thessalonians 5:23.

Since the majority of human aliments are closely tied to damage in the emotional and spiritual areas, I.H. focuses there.

looking inI.H. seeks to bring the power of Christ to bear on healing the roots from which damage springs. The soul of man provides a rich potting soil for the cultivation of memories which serve as nutrients of long term memories. Specific bad roots are often uncovered and related bad fruit exposed such as, unforgivness, anger, bitterness, rejection, low self esteem, fear, worry, and sexual issues.

Romans 12:2 says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…” Inner Healing is the renewing of your mind.

As we go through life, we get hurt. When we are hurt, we do our best to keep from falling apart or reacting in such a way that our behavior is considered socially unacceptable. Either way, we suppress our honest (truthful) reaction. Ideally, we would have dealt honestly with each hurt at or soon after the time it happened. But in the course of our lives we stuff the hurt and believe the lie that it’s ok, just go on.

This unwillingness to “keep a short account” with our hurts, leaving them to fester within us results in mild to severe disruption in three relationships: with God, with ourselves, and with others. Disruptions in these areas create most of the garbage, rats like to feed on.

The ideal relationship with God would see us as new and growing creatures (2 Cor.5:17). United with our Lord and one with Him in spirit (1 Cor. 6:17), filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:4) and living as close to the Father as Jesus did (John 5:19, 30).

The ideal relationship with self would see us accepting, loving, and forgiving ourselves as God accepts loves and forgives us. We are full –fledged children of God (1 John 3:1; Rom 8:14-17; Gal 4:4-7) as joint heirs with Jesus. Such a relationship frees us to totally forgive any who hurt us.

The ideal relationship with others, would see us as accepting, loving, and forgiving others as God accepts, loves, and forgives them as he has enabled us to accept, love and forgive our selves. We relate in a healthy, constructive manner with all others, especially Christians.  We relate properly to all God-ordained authority.

These are the ideals. In reality we are far from these ideals. So we find spiritual illness in our lives as the results of factors such as sin, neglect of our relationship with God, wrong views of God, and anger at God for what He allows to happen. In addition, we may have inherited a generational spirit or curse and be under satanic attack due to the garbage within us.

Such relational illnesses tend to show up in emotional problems. Our reactions to what others have done to us or what we have done to ourselves often result in damaging attitudes such as guilt, anger, bitterness, forgiveness, and fear.

Improper family conditioning often ushers in responses such as perfectionism, performance orientation, and a critical spirit and feelings of inadequacy and unworthiness.

Note: That, it is the reaction, not the hurt itself that becomes the problem. This proves out so many times in sessions with wounded people. Wallowing in even a legitimate reaction, then, results in the build-up of the emotional garbage demons feed on.

We often have the right to be angry or even take revenge. But Jesus knows if we hold onto that right, the inner infection will destroy us. So He says, “Give it to me.” He is concerned with how you reacted to what happened to you and the fact that you are holding on to it. He is saying “give it to me so I can free you up to receive healing in this wound on your emotions.” As long as you hold onto it He cannot heal you.

Emotional Illness is often signaled by a fear of facing the past. Our brains (spirit brain knows everything because it is linked to the person of the Holy Spirit, physical brain) record everything that happens in our lives. However, they also hide and suppress the recall of the heavy stuff. This is helpful for immediate survival, but if it is kept buried, it infects the present.

Many of us have suppressed hurt for so long and know so little of what to expect if we let it surface that we respond with fear at the very suggestion of dealing with the past. And the enemy is very active in encouraging such fear. Hiding our inner stuff without dealing with it, however, affects the three relationship’s mentioned above.
