in response to W H O ~ K N E W...
thats very true, Jesus was killed, and killed by HIS own people, but NOT because HE came to rule at that time, HE came to sacrifice HIS life for the sins of man, and to reconnect sinful man with a perfect, sinless GOD in the only way it could be accomplished in GODS economy, a free gift, sent because of GODS love for us, offered to whosoever will, HE covered our sin, so GOD could relate to us through HIM and only HIM.. JOHN 14:6 HE knew what HE came for, and what was going to happen... thats the heart of the Christian faith.... Jesus crucified, and gloriously ressurrected to rule and reign. I look forward to HIS soon return.
GODs sovereign rule was rejected way back in Davids time, when HIS chosen nation wanted a King, like all the other nations around them, and they chose Saul, rejecting GODS rule, but GOD allowed it, and when Saul would not listen to GOD, GOD chose David. Its ancient history, and here we are, still rejecting GOD, and GODS man for the job. What do I really think about it all, well.....I would never vote for Obama...never, he is scary, have you read his book? he thinks that the Declaration of Independance is out-moded, this document declares that all men are created equal, and are endowed by our Creator with inalienable rights...Obama says that it means we are born into this world free, and arrive with a bundle of rights that can't be taken away by any person or state without just cause...hmmm, wonder what just cause would take away our rights? being old? disabled? he already thinks that the unborn have no rights, and an infant that survives an abortion should NOT be protected.... this country has lost a great deal of respect for life because its value has been diminished and the dollar has become more important...what I am writing is all too true... so whos next? the old, or the disabled? as for Mccain, I am not enthralled with him either, but for me, he is the lesser of two evils. I have this magnetic sign on my car....see below
"They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not (against me you've appointed unholy people to lead my nation): of their silver and their gold have they made them idols (your money was more important to you than your moral beliefs), that they may be cut off. (Cut off from what? -- From God's protection) (When we appoint non-Christians to lead us we literally bring about our own destruction) Hosea 8:4
so you see where I am at, and for IMHO a very good reason, the benefit of all humankind, GODS will, WILL be done, I KNOW HIM, and thats just how it is....plain, simple, and honest.
I am sure I will be labeled a crackpot... or perhaps a cracked pot... I don't care, I am not in a popularity contest for humans, I love them, and care about them, I am one and I am here on earth to serve GOD, the best way I can, the good Lord willing. the truth, is the truth, pretty or not, popular or not, and I don't believe there is one truth for you, and another truth for me, and another for someone else, if that were the case truth would have no meaning...its truth, or its not truth!!! I know that truth will prove itself with time.
