This happened last night in my back yard.



Even in the night there is light and beauty

'Even in the night there is light and beauty.' And of course this can be a metaphor for these days in which we live, for even in the darkness of them, there is our Lord who is light and beauty and He is with us. That was a very much needed touch and thanks for posting it.

The darkness is slowly being burned up with the light regarding the news today. Truth is being told all over Russia and Europe with a movie that favors the 911 truth movement and this is a good thing. It has been revealed that the Bush administration authorized attacks with Pakistan without notifying the Pakistani government. The people of Pakistan are burning efigies of Bush and America, and the people are calling for retaliation. Does anyone know anything about the new president (Bhutto's husband) such as if he is another puppet or opposed to the Bush administration?

Keep hanging in there y'all and keeping the faith.

So what do you all think about Sarah Palin?

This woman scares the shit out of me.

If this woman ever get to be president(& she may very well because McCain is in poor health)this country is done for.

I got a very bad feeling about this woman.She is also a raptue nut.

Sandra, blessings and thanks for making it a better day; been missing you girl in a big way and glad you are back. I hope you stay.

Anonymous,

Just the fact that Palin is a rapture nut and thinks that Alaska will be an Armageddon refuge (?) says it all for me. She is just another of the false religion with all its' propaganda and doing satan's bidding to lead people astray.

I bravely copied this from Les Visible's site and thought you might enjoy it:

Palin needs to shut up about Russia! Hell, how does a loving Mother send her Son off to fight, kill or be killed in a war! We have the access of information and technology(the Internet)and with this tool we can know the truth! Such an action on her part speaks volumes about this woman/manchuraian! She is a bimbo and then some; like Clinton and the rest of them...If she will sell out her own Son, what would she do to a stranger (s)! This friends is the true dead giveaway of what and who she is!!! And slamming Russia, well, she is certainly gonna offer us up as she climbs the ladder to Evil's (the father of lies) feet. Truthers must see this!

*****
I am so fed up with the lies and the propoganda, I could tune out the world and not miss it for a second - other than His people that gather here.

Love to all.

Sandra said...

FF,
Thank you for the welcome back. I needed to leave for awhile to do some prayer and reading. The world needs so much love and truth. It is hard sometimes because you get frustrated with the lies and half truths. I watched Palin tonight and I wonder how a woman who claims to be a Christian can sit there and lie to the reporter. If I did that I would have so much anxiety and the Lord would pull at my soul until I confessed the lie. I just have a hard time understanding the world but that is because I am not of this world the same as you. It is hard at times to stay positive when the world is going to hell.

I have my "little man" over tonight. He is Down Syndrome and I am watching him because his mom is at a retreat this weekend. He keeps me centered because he is who he is and does not put on airs as "normal people" do. I read a book once called "Gods Clowns" and Downs Syndrome children played a role in the end times. Of course it was fiction but I do believe they are sent to us for a special purpose. I am just trying to figure out why Palin was blessed with a child with Down Syndrome.


God Bless

I do so well understand exactly what you mean Sandra, but we can rejoice that we are not going to hell with the world; instead He is raising us up. All praise and thanks to the Lord. I am full of joy that you are back. All thanks and praise to the Lord. It's good to take rest in the Lord - we simply must. And He always carries us through. Sometimes it's good to realize that we may not agree on everything at all times even among each other and we have to expect to sometimes agree to disagree but continue pressing on. Onward Christian soldiers...together as one as He prayed for us to be.

We may not know everything in this life either such as why Palin was blessed with a special child, but I hope and pray that she recognizes it as such. Maybe it is a test for her. Unfortunately the child has already been exploited for their political purposes and benefit in my opinion and this a little unsettling but I hope it is the media more than her, but she allowed it - that how good she is that she didn't terminate the pregnancy even with the knowledge that the child was 'not normal.' I bet your special person loves you just as much as you love him. The 'no airs' is so refreshing as is their humbleness and forget about trying to fool them - they will catch you every time.

I read your other comment at the previous post and was thinking similar to yours about the timing being wrong. Ike is going to change things quickly I believe. The news reported that there are billions being lost every hour as all the refineries are shut down and most likely going to be destroyed. The economy is fragile enough without another huge loss, a possible huge spike in gas prices could send people over the edge and voila, you have the making of a perfect storm, and it has a name of Ike that cannot be blamed on Bush. It could very well just be the timing that was wrong. We remain watchful and prayerful just as before and always...onward Christian soldiers.

Come Lord Jesus, come quickly.

"Has not our modern world created its own idols?" Benedict said in his homily, and wondered aloud whether people have "imitated, perhaps inadvertently, the pagans of antiquity?"

"This is a question that all people, if they are honest with themselves, cannot help but ask," the pontiff said.

http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory?id=5793993

I hope the Pope answered this question himself and will sell off all the riches of the Vatican and give to the poor nations of the world. Again pointing the finger at others while the catholic church hoards its wealth.

Our eyes are open Benedict and we see the hypocrisy of your message. No wonder people are turned off to Christianity.

Sandra said...

I hope all that are going to vote in this election do so with open eyes on the lies being told on both sides. Here is a couple of websites to help you understand what the candidates are saying and the facts. An informed people is not what most running for office want and they want you to buy into their slogans. Sadly most people are too lazy or don't want the facts because of their bias. They want to stay asleep to the reality of the facts:

That would make for a really good day, Sandra, to have the vatican sell off its riches and give to the poor. What a nice thought my sister - I loved it. Bias runs deep and the veil of delusion is strong that the Lord sends to those who refuse to seek Him. Thanks for the links Sandra, and can I say again how blessed we are to have you back among us.

I heard the other day that Obama's foreign policy advisor is Zbignew Brezenski(sp?) and this man is certaily of satan's synagogue in my opinion.

I copied this from the other site and wanted to share because as Sandra has said the world needs more truth. We should spread it around:

Russia my friends are part of the plot to rid the world of millions of the human masses that flood the planet.

NO....NO.... and NO... We have no friends or allies just false flags and false hopes. Amazing how they can stir up the s--- [and if you notice] one bowl at a time.

We continue to do a landslide business with Communist China, but stir up the s---- with Russia. Amazing how quickly we change seats at the glutton table of deceit.

Rev 7 [7-8] And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse; and his name that on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto ....THEM....over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

If you notice it's "him" whose name is Death, but the magic word is "THEM" the power was given unto to.

Ah ! for the WORD....If it wasn't for the WORD, there would be no word at all.

Like Mr. Ron "who loves the Constitution" Paul, Russia is just another bowl to be stirred in the bowls of s--- by the power that was given unto THEM.

There is no saving the planet, the only thing worth saving is us, [if we chose to do so], by the loving grace of "whosoever believeth in HIM, should not perish, but have everlasting life".

It was a battle for a long, long time, for me to concede to the loss of "this land that I love". Only by the Grace of GOD do I realize there is nothing on this earth more important than my "soul". [and we do have one ...you know]

That is how GOD speaks to us, that is how we know it is GOD and it is the truth. Through our souls. If it weren't for that truth, there would be no truth on this earth at all and we would be among the rest of the mindless sheeple, lost to the beast that rules this earth.

Young Brother, If I am not mistaken one of Peter's sites had this 'word verification' but he was able to remove it. It's not a big deal, but if it would work without it that would be even better. Just a suggestion for a possibility.

The news is reporting that it is 'uncertain right now exactly what Ike means for gas prices around the whole nation.' I heard gas prices were being raised while people were evacuating. I have been watching to see if any of the refineries were destroyed but it might be too early to know for sure.

I seen Bush giving a brief statement about declaring Texas a disaster area and it might just be my imagination, but he seemed disappointed that there wasn't actually more destruction. Had to be my imagination, right?

Sarah Palin's first tv interview with Charlie Gibson was very revealing. She didn't know what the Bush Doctrine (preemptive srikes on any nation posing a threat) was and after Charlie told her what it was, she never answered if she agreed with it or not. She really seems like a manchurian candidate if there ever was one. She is the first VP chosen in over 32 years to never have met with any foreign head of state. But she looks good and sounds good. What's the problem?!

Hang in there y'all for surely our redemption draweth nearer.

Love in His name.

Sandra said...

FF,
For the majority there is no problem at all with Palin. For all those republicans who were blaming women for the breakup of the family because they went to work they sure have changed their tune. Not Dr. Laura though. She does not think it was a good choice.

My sister who is a staunch republican call me long distance to tell me the bad democrats were bad mouthing Palin because she is a woman with 5 kids. I told her I did not know what she was talking about but I would search to find out who said it..behold it was the conservative republican Dr. Laura so sent her this link. No response from her. Here is the link on what Dr. Laura wrote on her blog:

Hello all,

I have somethings to share with everyone. First, I recieved a great email from Jay Atkinson at Latter Rain, and wanted ot share it. Also, YB hang in there. I sense your heart is in the right place. Remembe, the destruciton foreshaodwed in Revelation will be on the Beast and those who worship its image and recieve its mark. His people will be protecte din the Ark of his mercy, and is any of us fall into their hands, the Spirit will empower us ot be overcomers by our witness. In other words, its all good people so smile!

On to what I am sharing. First, I read a great book on prophecy called the Apocalypse Code by Hank Hanegraff. Very easy to understand and it debunks dispensationalism with the sharp sword of truth,.

And here is the link to the article from Latter Rain.

Peace to you all and let us be busy with the Lord's Work.

I hear gas prices are supposed to surge by about $.50 a gallon come Monday...because of the storm 'Ike' hitting Texas and oil refineries, supposedly. Unbelievable...but what's more ridiculous is how accustomed I've become to paying $4 a gallon like it's nothing ;) I guess it's better than the $5 and up they pay in Europe..

It was refreshing to see that no attacks occurred in the U.S. on 9/11...in NY, the entire sky was a hazy gray the whole day and there was a chill in the air, it was very eery, and 'looked' like 9/11. Seven years ago, but still felt like yesterday..

Sandra said...

Nathandave,

I love that. "It is all good". I say that a lot lately because I do know that we will overcome in the end. I do know that we have to stop being quiet against the bullies of this world and to give back the truth with their lies. They are mean and will twist anything said that brings light to the world and we have to be prepared for that. My husband use to say there are some people you can not wake up and they will die that way but I use to try to shake them awake. I finally have realized that it is useless because they are so into the lie that nothing you say to them is going to budge them from the lie. The final stage has been set for the battle between truth and lies. Between awakening to this nightmare or staying asleep and falling for the lie of the deceiver. The choice is always ours because God is not a dictator and wants us to choose our path.

I thought this was an interesting paragraph in your link:

"Show her no mercy. When Babylon falls, the beast is crippled and will not rise up again until later, we have a window now. Counter the pride and arrogance of the Republican Church with confidence and authority. Blow the trumpet and sound the alarm loud enough that it overwhelms the immense lies against us. Since they have stolen the spiritual authority of the people, get back into church and reclaim all of them. They like to throw stones, throw them back. They like machine gun politics, fling arrows of truth at them, expose the violence, let them know that blood is on their hands and Jesus is coming soon to judge them"

My personal belief is we have to work with the people outside the church because those in the church will not listen. They have already chosen the LIE. That is just my humble opinion but they kicked Jesus out and they will do the same to us. I tried to do it within a church I was going to and was labeled as a "Busybody". That is Ok because Jesus would be labeled it today if he was trying to bring truth to the churches.

Kelly,
Personally I don't care if gas goes up to $10 because I want this country to come to its knees on its consumerism and realize what gluttons this country has been. I know some might say "but it will hurt the poor". The poor will survive because they have had to endure so much and have grown stronger in their battle against the forces of evil. Hope no one stones me for that remark but I am getting tired of trying to wake up people who will not see the truth staring them down and if it takes the economy to come down for them to realize that they have made an idol of "money" so be it.

Yours in Christ

I believe the tide is starting to turn. It will be a battle like no other. I was at the evangelical site the other day discussing America being Mystery Babylon and I was told by one person that they 'abhor what I come and do to the believers on that site with whatever it is that I do.' They hate the truth (and the messenger bringing it) and we have been silent about it for so long which should make for an interesting combination...oh yeah - we are gonna rock. We will bring glory to the Rock on which we so firmly stand while His enemies become His footstool. How can we not desire that.

The sooner the better that it goes down. A person close to me the other day told me that she was disappointed that something didn't happen on the 11th as she very much wants an end to this system of things.

The Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae buyouts are expected to bring in an economic depression and this will be by design also. All we have to know and remember is that He who is in us is greater than He who is in the world. God is with us and whom shall we fear? God's strength is amazing. I told the associate pastor at my work the other day everything I believe after he asked me who I was going to vote for. He sat and listened and I think time stood still for him. All he could say when he left was 'wow.' I no longer feel any concern about what he or anyone thinks of me for my belief because I am what God has made me and how can I be ashamed of that. It was so liberating that I cannot wait to do it again. For Jesus' glory, all for His glory. The truth according to His holy word is not going to be stilled for very much longer. Are we ready to rock? Are we prepared to challenge the status quo and suffer any consequences? It is certainly starting to seem so and a joy to witness.

God will give us discernment to know when to dust our feet off and move on; when the ground cannot grow the seed. He will guide us every step of the way and this is why we need not fear. This is why we can rejoice at the joy in our heart even in the midst of this enveloping darkness. The light will overtake the darkness and it is dawning. Rejoice and give thanks and praise for the blessings that will be and are being poured out among His faithful.

The midwest that was saturated from before is getting soaked again. There are flash floods everywhere, and my area even had the eye of Ike pass through early this morning. I do not recall that ever having happened before.

But, there are going to be many things happening that we have never seen before. Maybe this is where we now say, 'bring it on' and when our Lord's mission is accomplished, His will be done on this Earth as it is in Heaven. Come quickly dear Lord Jesus.

Your sister in Christ.
Love to all.

Kelly said...

FF,

I am also hearing that the Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae buyout's will hurt the economy dearly; and have heard several utterances of economic depression come the start of the new year...I agree that our nation has been ruled by the 'almighty dollar' for far too long..we are so deep-rooted in consumerism, it's hard to imagine our nation without it's corporate conglomerates, system of trade and technological marvels.

"He who is in us is greater than he who is in the world.." what I live by daily and what always gets me through, your encouragement is always appreciated : )

To my sisters FF, Sandra, and Kelly:

Very inspiring you all. Thank you.

Lehman Bros. is trying to figure out a way to thwart 'panic' among its investors, we have our 4th largest city under water, major flooding in Illinois and Indiana, and most likely spiking gas prices because of Ike. Greenspan announcing that it is the 'worst economy that he has ever seen' probably will help further their agenda in a quick way also.

Be prepared for the worst and keep praying for the best. Staying watchful and witnessing the testimonies of faith here is a blessing more than ever. I wish I could find the words to describe the joy and edification that His people bring...it is nothing short of amazing and makes this journey so much more bearable. Bless you all.

From Jude 1:20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, 21 Keep your selves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

And Psalms 119:129 Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them.
130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.
131 I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy commandments.
132 Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name.
133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.
134 Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep thy precepts.
135 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy statutes.
136 Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not thy law.

***

We are so blessed my brothers and sisters and praise Him for all His blessings and mercies. I pray for His face to shine on each and everyone of you for what better is there that can be given.

Love in His name.

I have been telling people for 10 years to get out of debt and to live more simple but it has gone on deaf ears. Nobody thought it was going to end. I did know that we could not continue building bigger and bigger homes, drive SUV's and RV's without it coming tumbling down eventually. It was the mindset of those with the "most toys" in the end wins. Well guess what???? It has ended for the majority of the people. They decided that things meant more than walking gentle on the earth. I have to admit that I am frustrated because it did not have to be this way. If you were a Christian you should have cared more for people than "things". Than along comes the prosperity movement in the churches which relied on "Greed" of people. Mega churches were built and they heard that "money" was a blessing and that prosperity was around the corner if only you would pledge and believe. So while the pastors of those churches got rich off the sheep and even had air condition dog houses people in third world nations suffered. I will no longer give to big charities because they have top executives who have outrages salaries. The one organization that does not have high salaries is the Salvation Army.

I am frustrated at the whole system in this country. We could have done such good in the world but we chose to get involved in "GREED" and thinking that we were better than others. When I see the suffering and death in the world and this country pounds it chest saying we are the beacon of hope it makes me sick. Things will not change unless we as a people say enough is enough. Get involved, start with your family and the community. I personally will not try in the churches. As far as I am concerned they are part of Babylon. When they started bringing the flag into the church it was the beginning of the end in my humble opinion. Jesus said "Do not give a oath" and the flag and the pledge should be off limits in church. We are to teach the lessons of Jesus not "America is the promised land". Take it from an Indian living on Indian reservation that is not the thing to promote.

When I saw what they were promoting at the "family values" conference it made me realize the hate that is in this country. The Obama waffles was racist to the core and Lou Dobbs being there and saying "my wife will love this" was over the top. They took the picture off of Lou Dobbs but I saw it and it is on other blog sites.

Hello Everyone,

I am very glad to see some more familiar faces back here. I needed to take a few days rest from blogging (obviously), but should be back to posting soon. Just wanted to say "hi" and thanks to you all.

The days since the seemingly uneventful 7th anniversary of 9-11 have been jam-packed with further developments. Things are picking up pace. NathanDave, I am reading the "Latter Day" article that you shared, and I fully agree with your stance about preaching the truth more loudly now. What 9-11-08 taught me is that every day is a grace period, and an opportunity to penetrate the darkness just a little bit more with whatever light God has entrusted each of us with. God is waiting for us just as much as we are waiting for God. Right now, every day is our invitation to reclaim the promised land from the Giants that now possess it. (Numbers 13-14)

What a blessing for us to become stronger as the world system grows more weak. There is so much ground for us to cover. Thankfully we have each other to share this with.

Sandra, copied this for you as I know it will resonate deeply with you:

Feel like putting in my two cents on Russia. Russia and China have grand plans for the Whore. They plan on sweeping her with the broom of destruction. Do the research my friends. Ah, but what if GOD is merely gathering up the war machines of the earth to do away with them? Do away with them after they've been used to judge the Whore. The same whore who the rest of the world has become drunk with the wine of her fornication. Most notably her monetary sorceries.

A Whore who has gone mad with consumption and entertainment. A Whore who is lovers of pleasures more than lovers of the CREATOR and her fellow "neighbor". A Whore who is in a perpetual state of "disconnect" due to her endless stream of consumption and entertainment. A Whore who is going to get down right offended when GOD raises up a "people" who will declare her lewdness to her. Hence> 24And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

A Whore who dwells carelessly and says within her heart "I am and no one else will be". A high minded arrogant Whore. A Whore whose main export is monetary inflation to the rest of the world. A Whore who accounts for 5% of the world's population yet she consumes 40% of it's resources. A Whore who all that trade by ship have been made rich by her insatiable appetite for material goodies. A Whore who has been able to live high on the hog via monetary smoke and mirrors. Via monetary sorceries.

Love and peace to all. Stay watchful and hopeful.
