CHURCH 17APR11

Php 2:1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
Php 2:2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
Php 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
Php 2:4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
Php 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Php 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
Php 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
Php 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Php 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
Php 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
Php 2:11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Php 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
Php 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

MOST PEOPLE WHO ARE CHRISTIANS HAVE ISSUES ON THEIR HEART WITH THE ABOVE

TAKE A PERSON THATS A CHRISTIAN AND PLACE THEM IN A HARSH ENVIROMENT

THEY GET USED TO THAT ENVIROMENT

ITS UP TO YOU TO WORK ON YOUR OWN SALVATION

EVERYONE NEEDS TO FOCUS ON GOD

PEOPLE SAY THEY WANT TO BE LIKE JESUS – THINK ABOUT THIS

TO BE LIKE HIM, YOU HAVE TO GIVE UP ALL

LONG SUFFERING COMES FROM JESUS – THE ABILITY TO GET ALONG WITH PEOPLE WHOM YOU DO NOT LIKE

IF JESUS LOVES YOU – WOULD YOU GIVE UP YOUR LIFE DEFENDING HIM – OR WOULD YOU GIVE UP YOUR LIFE FOR ANOTHER IN ORDER TO SAVE HIM

JESUS DEATH TOOK A LOT OF LOVE FOR EVERYONE EVEN THE SINNER

IF IT WASN’T FOR JESUS WE WOULD HAVE NOTHING

CHRIST DIED FOR YOU – MANY ARE CALLED BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN

WHEN THE LIGHT OF THE LORD COMES UPON YOU – YOU WILL BECOME A CHANGED PERSON

PREACHERS NEED TO PUT YOU FIRST THEMSELVES SECOND

JESUS WAS NEVER BETTER THAN ANY ONE

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN HUMILIATED BY SOMEONE IN FRONT OF OTHERS

JESUS WAS HUMILIATED BY HIS OWN PEOPLE – HE COULD HAVE COME DOWN OFF THE CROSS BUT HE DIDN’T

HE DIED FOR US – THERE WILL COME A TIME WHEN EVERYONE WILL BEND HIS KNEEE AND CONFESS TO THE LORD

RIGHT NOW MOST PEOPLE WILL NOT BOW TO ANYTHING

WHEN CHRIST REINS FOR 1000 YEARS EVERYONE WILL BOW – WITHOUT CHOICE

WHAT JESUS SAID IN THE BIBLE IS FOR YOU – GODS PLEASURE WILL BE WORKED OUT IN YOU BY THE POWER OF THE LORD

CHRISTIAN NEWZ:

GLOBAL CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION PICKS UP DURING LENT

By: John David Powell

A few weeks ago, at the start of Great Lent, I told my wife I really should sit down and chart the negative news about Christians and Christianity that always seem to increase during the Lenten and Christmas seasons. Maybe it’s just my heightened sensitivity, but then again, maybe not.

Sure enough, the so-called mainstream media did not disappoint me. Maybe I should rephrase that and say the mainstream media did exactly what I expected. And, they had help from an unfortunate source.

Terry Jones, who pastors a small Florida congregation, made good on his promise to burn a copy of the Koran. That ill-conceived action resulted in murderous outrage in many parts of the Muslim world and led to condemnations from religious, political, and military leaders in this country and around the world.

The hard truth is that Muslim extremists do not need a publicity-hungry, Koran-burning preacher from Florida to go on a murderous rampage. They are quite ready to unleash their violence for a variety of reasons, and not just against Christians.

You would be hard-pressed to find stories about the murder a few days after the UN killings of at least 41 Muslims in Pakistan by other Muslims. In this case, as reported by the BBC, suicide attackers carried out the attack near a Sufi shrine in Punjab during an annual three-day festival. Sufis are a minority Muslim group regarded as heretics by Muslim hardliners.

This attack, which killed five times as many Muslims, followed an attack last October that killed six Muslims at a shrine in Punjab province, and an attack on a Lahore shrine earlier this year that killed at least 42 Muslims.

Fox News tried to tie recent violence against Ethiopian Christians to the Koran burning, even though its own story reported an on-going Muslim persecution of Christians in that country. On March 24, Fox News reported that Muslims torched about 50 churches and dozens of Christian homes earlier in the month, forcing as many as 10,000 Christians to flee for their lives after accusations that a Christian in their community desecrated the Koran. At least one Christian was murdered in the violence believed to have been instigated by Muslims promoting religious intolerance in the area in Western Ethiopia.

I’ve written about global Christian persecution since I started writing columns back in the late 1980s. In fact, that’s how I was introduced to the Sovereign Military Order of the Temple of Jerusalem, the Knights Templar. One member compiling reports of Christian persecution for the Templars’ application to be a United Nations NGO found my online writings and asked if I would like to help out. That was back in the mid-90s when Web searches were not as easy as they are today.

I haven’t written as much in recent years, mainly because search engines have made it easier to find such tales and keep this issue in front of people who care. But it appears that the reporting of Christian persecution is like preaching to the choir.

Here are some more examples of global Christian persecution not connected to the Koran burning.

An affair between a Christian man and a Muslim woman caused Muslims to attack, plunder, and torch an ancient Coptic church near Cairo. While some of the attackers chanted “Allahu Akbar!”, others removed ancient relics of saints and martyrs and kicked them around in a soccer game before converting the church into a mosque. Thousands of Christians had already fled the village because of overall terrorism against the Coptic community, including the kidnapping and rape of Christian girls.

The Nigerian Compass reported that last Christmas Eve, Muslim bombers killed at least 30 people in the state of Borneo. One blast was in front of a Catholic church.

Last November, the Assyrian International News Agency reported that Muslim gunmen who took hostages in a Baghdad church killed at least 58 Christians, including two priests, and wounded 75 others before Iraqi forces rescued the survivors from their terrible ordeal. A group called the Islamic State of Iraq took responsibility, calling the church “the dirty den of idolatry.”

Here’s a side note to that incident. The church was surrounded with concrete barriers and razor wire because church leaders feared an attack if Jones made good on his first threat to burn the Koran on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Apparently, the al-Qaeda-linked group did not need the specter of a burning Koran as a reason to attack and kill Christians.

The terrible truth is that the sun rises and sets on many countries around the world with Christians hunkered down in fear for their lives because they live among Muslim extremists. We in the United States cannot relate because we do not share this fear. At least not since 9/11.

AFP CRASHES GLOBALIST CONFAB

By Mark Anderson
BRETTON WOODS, N.H.—When this AMERICAN FREE PRESS writer—accompanied by photographer Stephen Lombardo—finally reached the sleepy enclave of Bretton Woods in northern New Hampshire on Sunday, April 10, there was no immediate outward sign that top bankers, former federal officials, former foreign officials, academics and select journalists were holed up in the historic Mount Washington Hotel to monkey with the world’s financial machinery. There were no television news crews camped along the long drive off of Highway 302 to give viewers a glimpse of this meeting—known as Bretton Woods II….

Short Life Expectancy for BP Whistleblowers?

The investigation, if it can properly be so called, of the unsolved murder of the former high ranking Pentagon official and presidential advisor John P. Wheeler III, who was also an expert on chemical and biological weapons, may be taking a turn in the direction of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
Wheeler, 67, a West Point grad, was beaten and thrown into a garbage dumpster. His body was discovered in a Wilmington, Del. landfill last New Year’s weekend. Both police detectives and news commentators described it as “an apparent hit,” but little else was ever learned, and no suspects have surfaced….

Americans who are fed up with what many perceive to be President Barack Obama’s intransigence toward Israel will find a refreshing alternative in 2012 if Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) manages to capture the Republican Party’s presidential nomination.
The attractive, outspoken congresswoman—founder of the Tea Party Caucus in the House of Representatives—is an aggressive, no-holds-barred supporter of the Zionist nation. She has taken Obama to task, asserting that “the Obama administration has decided to . . . leave Israel to face the world alone, effectively abandoning our longtime friend and ally when they need us the most.” Mrs. Bachmann told one interviewer of her special passion for Israel: …

Several prominent legal analysts have suggested that the ruling from Vaughn Walker, who formerly was a federal judge, that vanquished the vote of Californians on Proposition 8 defining marriage as between one man and one woman should be vacated immediately because the judge likely is a “direct beneficiary” of his own ruling.

Wall Street Warns GOP About Debt Ceiling

It’s not just Tim Geithner who’s warning about the dangers of not raising the debt ceiling: Wall Street is pressing Republicans to reach a deal, lest fears over the U.S. defaulting on its debt send the global economy into a tailspin. During a recent series of meetings, Wall Street executives and lobbyists warned Republican lawmakers that letting the debate drag into the summer would disrupt credit markets. The government says it will reach its borrowing limit on May 16 and risks defaulting on its debt on July 8 without fresh funds.
Though some lawmakers believe
the debate can go past May 16 without causing too much damage, and the White House has indicated it might take until June to reach a broader deal, taking the debate down to the wire will likely make businesses and investors skittish. “Bond markets will start to get very nervous if we go beyond May 16 without a debt-ceiling agreement being reached,” said Ajay Rajadhyaksha, head of fixed-income strategy at Barclays Capital. And if investors don’t trust long-term government debt, interest rates would rise, making the government’s borrowing costs go up and hastening
the risk of default. “Wall Street understands that if we default on our bligations, our markets are going to crash,” said freshman Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY). “They’re doing their job and talking to a lot of members.” …

A floundering presidency heading for a fall? Barack Obama hits rock bottom in latest Gallup poll

By Nile Gardiner
The latest Gallup Daily tracking three-day average represents a new low for Barack Obama, with just 41 percent of Americans approving his job performance as president. This matches his previous lows in August 2010 and October 2010, just before the mid-term elections, and it is significantly down from his 2011 average of 48 percent. The president’s disapproval rating now stands at 50 percent, the highest point since August last year. In contrast, George W. Bush’s approval rating at this stage of his presidency stood at 70 percent (April 2003), and the average for US presidents in the ninth quarter stands at 57 percent.

Opponents or Enemies?

In any conflict, it is a deadly error to mistake or underestimate the adversary’s capabilities, will to employ them, or ultimate goals.

Around the globe, what was once confidently deemed “Western civilisation” is in an end-stage battle with champions of a collectivist and statist ideology which, over the last century, has enacted programs of redistributive taxation, borrowing, and spending whose unsustainability has now become self-evident and which, unless the present course is altered, will collapse in at most ten years. Further, the second- and higher-order effects of these policies have led to demographic collapse in the societies which have adopted them, crippled capital formation and the creation of productive enterprises, and been used as a justification for mass immigration from regions hostile to the culture and values of the West which have been responsible for its prosperity.

Carcinogens Injected Into Wells: Report
This could damage President Obama’s push for greater use of natural gas as an alternative to oil: A report issued late Saturday by Congressional
Democrats has found that the process of tapping into large reserves of natural gas-known has hydraulic fracturing or “fracking”-involves
injecting hazardous chemicals into wells. Democrats on the House Energy and Commerce committee said their report was the first comprehensive
national inventory of chemicals used by companies that engage in the practice. The report says that between 2005 and 2009, more than a dozen
leading energy companies have injected hundreds of millions of gallons of drilling fluids containing possibly carcinogenic compounds, including
methanol, benzene, sulfuric acid, and lead. Some ingredients mixed into the hydraulic fracturing fluids were common and generally harmless, like
salt and citric acid. Others were unexpected, like instant coffee and walnut hulls, the report added. But many ingredients were “extremely toxic.” …

Like ancient Egypt, if Americans follow this vision, we will all end up slaves.

TREASON!
ILLUMINATI BETRAYED BRITISH AGENTS IN WWII
By: Henry Makow

In the wake of D-Day June 6, 1944, hundreds of acts of sabotage were committed by the French Resistance — with one exception.
There were none in the north and north west where they mattered most.

There, the “Prosper” and related “Scientist” networks had been mopped by the Gestapo in 1943. Prosper’s courageous young leader, Francis Anthony Suttill, 34, was languishing in a concentration camp.

He and scores of British agents were later executed, along with over 10,000 members of the French Resistance. One hundred and sixty plane loads of armaments –2600 containers — including tons of sten guns and explosives, were seized by the Nazis. (193)

EMAIL FROM DEVVY KIDD-

How despicable:

“Why are our severely wounded troops in this desperate situation?

“Mainly because the government isn’t doing its job. As you may have already read in past newspaper articles, bureaucratic bumbling is forcing our troops severely wounded in Afghanistan or Iraq to wait an average of SIX MONTHS for their disability checks after leaving the hospital and being separated from the military.

“Now we learn that caregivers who were promised benefits from a law signed by President Obama nine months ago have received nothing. Yes, nothing – after nine months.”

“The government isn’t helping our wounded heroes and their families, but I’m hoping you will. Please make a tax-deductible donation to the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes right now.

“As the article points out, last May President Obama signed the law, called the Caregivers and Veterans Omnibus Health Services Act.

“As you can imagine, caring for a loved one who has been severely burned, blinded, paralyzed or even brain-damaged can be an emotionally and financially draining experience. This legislation was designed to give these caregivers some relief in the form of counseling, health-care training and other benefits. Perhaps the most important benefit: Caregivers are entitled to respite care for up to 30 days a year, and a monthly stipend estimated at $2,350.

“At the signing ceremony President Obama called this legislation a “major step forward in America’s commitment to families and caregivers who tend to our wounded warriors every day.”

“What Obama didn’t mention is the bill will help just 850 veterans, not 3,500 as originally promised. Additionally, there are tens of thousands of veterans who need caregiver help, so even the 3,500 who would have been covered isn’t nearly enough. First Lady Michelle Obama recently appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” to explain all the things her husband’s administration is doing for military families. But in reality, the parents who had such high hopes for President Obama’s caregiver legislation have received nothing but empty promises.”

Free trade as policy? Expect a collapse

http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.printable&pageId=283813


Richard Benson, President of Specialty Finance Group on February 12, 2004:

“While the industrial sector is recovering, employment in the manufacturing sector has not increased since the start of the recession – there has been job loss in manufacturing for the past 42 months in a row. The United States has been in an economic recovery for over a year and a half and continues to lose manufacturing jobs every month! This is unprecedented! America is losing manufacturing jobs paying $45,000 – $60,000 a year so it needs three new service jobs paying $15,000 – $20,000 a year just to replace the one manufacturing job that was lost.”

The U.S. textile industry has been unmercifully devastated by free trade which has birthed “outsourcing.” Since NAFTA & GATT were shoved down America’s throats, millions of jobs in all three key sectors (manufacturing, industrial, agriculture) have now gone off U.S. soil. Millions. Outsourcing is growing like a runaway cancer, right along with the country’s trade deficit. This is good for America? Americans wonder why there are no jobs, but they reelected the same incumbents who refuse to get us out of all those unconstitutional “free” trade treaties. Obama/Soetoro is trying to push through another one and he will be supported by anti-American jobs Speaker of the House, John Boehner.

Ezra Taft Benson, former Secretary of Agriculture, An Enemy Hath Done This, pg 155; 1969:

“Already, I can hear the chorus chanting “Isolationism, isolationism, he’s turning back the clock to isolationism.” How many use that word without having the slightest idea of what it really means! The so-called isolationism of the United States in past decades is a pure myth. What is isolationism? Long before the current trend of revoking our Declaration of Independence under the guise of international cooperation, American influence and trade was felt in every region of the globe. Individuals and private groups spread knowledge, business, prosperity, religion, good will and, above all, respect throughout every foreign continent. It was not necessary then for America to give up her independence to have contact and influence with other countries. It is not necessary now.

“Yet, many Americans have been led to believe that our country is so strong that it can defend, feed and subsidize half the world, while at the same time believing that we are weak and “interdependent” that we cannot survive without pooling our resources and sovereignty with those we subsidize. If wanting no part of this kind of “logic” is isolationism, then it’s time we brought it back into vogue.”

I’m not an attorney and cannot give legal advice. Just need to say that off the top to keep myself out of legal hot water. This is not legal advice. I am providing this information because it might be helpful for some folks.

Millions of Americans are hurting financially. They’ve lost their jobs or home (or both) and the looming IRS deadline tomorrow is likely making many depressed and in a state of panic because they don’t have the money owed to the IRS. Ignoring the problem only compounds it later on.

Not many people know about the Form 911. This is a form filed with the IRS to forgive your debt to them. I assisted a family member about ten years ago and was successful in getting the three years in back taxes wiped off the books.

If you are in a tough spot financially or know someone who is, this is the link to the IRS’ site for the Form 911 and qualifications:

Just because you file one doesn’t mean you will be forgiven the entire or even part of the amount allegedly owed. But, if you don’t file on Monday by midnight, well, the thieves will start the clock on penalties and interest. Here is a web site regarding the hardship form which includes phone numbers for what is called a Taxpayer Advocate:

This is another with information from a CPA which you can study and evaluate:

Option 6: HELP from 9 – 1 – 1
“Form 911 is a form to use when there is an EMERGENCY. The official title of Form 911 is Application for Taxpayer Assistance Order. We usually shorten it to “hardship.” Should the action being taken by the IRS create a substantial hardship, a Form 911 may be appropriate. When an IRS employee receives a 911, they are required to take action within days. Most always they will cease all collection activity until the problem posed in the Form 911 has been resolved. In the mean time you and your representative have had time to get information organized, forms completed, and other data the IRS Collection Division has requested. Form 911 buys time and helps get the problem solved quicker.”
