JUSTICE AND MERCY OF THE MINOR PROPHETS
Joel 2:13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.
WE HAVE ALL SINNED WE NEED TO REPENT
WHAT IS REPENT
ASKING FOR GODS FORGIVENESS WHOM WE HAVE SINNED AGAINST
YOU CANNOT ASK FOR FORGIVENESS AND KEEP DOING THE SAME SIN
Joel 1:1 The word of the LORD that came to Joel the son of Pethuel.
Joel 1:2 Hear this, ye old men, and give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land. Hath this been in your days, or even in the days of your fathers?
Joel 1:3 Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation.
Joel 1:4 That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpiller eaten.
Joel 1:5 Awake, ye drunkards, and weep; and howl, all ye drinkers of wine, because of the new wine; for it is cut off from your mouth.
Joel 1:6 For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion.
Joel 1:7 He hath laid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree: he hath made it clean bare, and cast it away; the branches thereof are made white.
Joel 1:8 Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for the husband of her youth.
Joel 1:9 The meat offering and the drink offering is cut off from the house of the LORD; the priests, the LORD’S ministers, mourn.
Joel 1:10 The field is wasted, the land mourneth; for the corn is wasted: the new wine is dried up, the oil languisheth.
Joel 1:11 Be ye ashamed, O ye husbandmen; howl, O ye vinedressers, for the wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field is perished.
Joel 1:12 The vine is dried up, and the fig tree languisheth; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree, even all the trees of the field, are withered: because joy is withered away from the sons of men.
Joel 1:13 Gird yourselves, and lament, ye priests: howl, ye ministers of the altar: come, lie all night in sackcloth, ye ministers of my God: for the meat offering and the drink offering is withholden from the house of your God.
Joel 1:14 Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the LORD your God, and cry unto the LORD,
Joel 1:15 Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.
Joel 1:16 Is not the meat cut off before our eyes, yea, joy and gladness from the house of our God?
Joel 1:17 The seed is rotten under their clods, the garners are laid desolate, the barns are broken down; for the corn is withered.
Joel 1:18 How do the beasts groan! the herds of cattle are perplexed, because they have no pasture; yea, the flocks of sheep are made desolate.
Joel 1:19 O LORD, to thee will I cry: for the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness, and the flame hath burned all the trees of the field.
Joel 1:20 The beasts of the field cry also unto thee: for the rivers of waters are dried up, and the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness.
THIS COULD WELL EXPLAIN THE HAPPENINGS IN THESE UNITED STATES TODAY
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD SHEEP WHEN THEY HAD NOTHING TO EAT, (DID YOU KNOW THAT ONLY THE SHEPPARD WHOM OWNS THE SHEEP, CAN CALL HIS SHEEP) THEY WILL BLAT AND BLAT, SHEEP WILL NOT STOP IF THEIR SHEPPARD DOESN’T STOP AS THEY FIGURE HE WILL LEAD THEM TO BETTER PASTURES
CAN YOU SEE ANYTHING GOING ON IN THIS NATION FOR LACK OF REPENTANCE
IS THE SEED ROTTEN, AND ARE THE CATTLE STARVING
(READ MATTHEW 18 AND YOU WILL SEE ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF WHATS HAPPENING IN OUR NATION)
Mat 18:17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.
IF PEOPLE DO NOT WANT TO CHANGE SHUN THEM
1. A collector of toll or tribute. Among the Romans, a publican was a farmer of the taxes and public revenues,and the inferior officers of this class were deemed oppressive.
As Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples. Mat 9.
2. The keeper of a public house; an innkeeper.
REPENTANCE NEEDS TO COME FROM THE HEART OR GOD WILL HEAR YOU
2 Chronicles 7:14 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 7:15 Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.
WILL GOD JUDGE OR SHOW MERCY
Ezekiel 7:3 Now is the end come upon thee, and I will send mine anger upon thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon thee all thine abominations.
Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
GOD WANTS PEOPLE NOT TO GO TO HELL, HE LOVES EVERYONE, GOD ALLOWS THINGS TO HAPPEN TO SHOW YOU THAT YOUR WAYS ARE NOT OF HIM
PEOPLE HAVE DREAMS THAT SHOW THEM THEIR WAYS, IT IS BELIEVED THESE DREAMS ARE OF THE LORDS CHOOSING
Luke 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
Luke 6:46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
A LOT OF THE NEW TESTAMENT WAS WRITTEN TOWARD THE JEWS, JUST BECAUSE JEWS ARE THE CHOSEN ONES DOESN’T MEAN THEIR NOT SINNERS
THE JEWS WERE GREAT FOR SACRIFICE BUT CONTINUED TO SIN
WHAT COMES FROM YOUR HEART WILL SHOW YOUR ACTIONS IN LIFE
HAVE YOU EVER TALKED TO A PERSON THAT LOOKED MEAN AND THEIR THE BEST PERSON EVER
AND THEN TALKED TO A PERSON THAT LOOKS ANGRY AND IS
ONE CAN PUT MAKE UP ON AND LOOK GREAT BUT THEIR NOT GREAT UNDER THE THE MAKE UP
DO YOU SEE PEOPLE FOR HOW THEY LOOK OR HOW THEY ACT
GOD SEES PEOPLE FOR HOW THEY ACT
THE JEWS OF JESUS TIME PUT PEOPLE OF INFLUENCE IN THE FRONT, JESUS PUT PEOPLE IN PLACES ACCORDING TO HOW THEY ACT
WE NEED A FOUNDATION IN THE LORD, WHEN A PERSON PUTS UP FOUNDATION FOR A HOUSE IT HAS TO BE PERFECT – ITS HARD TO BE PERFECT IN THE EYES OF GOD
Luke 6:47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
Luke 6:48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
Luke 6:49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
WHEN PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH LIVE OUT OF GODS WILL – HE WILL LEAVE THEM
WHEN PEOPLE PRAY FOR HEALING AND THE PERSON DIES, DON’T TURN AWAY FROM THE LORD
THE LORD NEVER TOLD US THAT WE WILL GO THROUGH LIFE WITHOUT PROBLEMS, WE WILL HAVE MANY PROBLEMS
REMEMBER WHEN YOU DIE YOU WILL LEAVE WITHOUT ANYTHING THE SAME WAY IN WITCH YOU WERE BORN
THE LORD WILL BRING YOU THROUGH ALL HARD TIMES NO MATTER WHAT

God’s Final Warning To America: UPDATED INFO
Are Christians Idiots?
You cannot be a follower of Christ and seek to force your neighbor to contribute to your welfare at the point of a sword or gun. You cannot be a modern socialist and a Christian. Those who think they can may be idiots. They are certainly non-participators in the Gospel of the Kingdom preached by Christ……
Defining America’s Exceptionalism, Part 17
I have not handpicked only the verses that deal with their religious beliefs. Most of their writing contains references to their faith. They appear all through their writings. Even when they would write about another patriot talking between one another, they would talk about the strong faith of a third party. Their Christian faith was the most important thing to them. They were men of honor and integrity and their characters were above reproach..

Not long ago, I read a fascinating book unlike any other. Translated into English from Arabic, the Girls of Riyadh compiles a series of emails written by a young Saudi Arabian woman who, at the time of the book’s release, was pursuing an endodontic degree in the States. Probably more entertaining than anthropomorphically relevant, our girls of Riyadh have much to teach us about Islamic culture and faith……..

U.N.: Iran Accelerating Nuclear Program
The United Nations nuclear watchdog says Iran appears to be accelerating its nuclear program. A report based on inspections of Iran’s nuclear facilities last month says the country has installed more-advanced machines for enriching uranium and moved them underground, where they’ll be less vulnerable to airstrikes. The report also expresses concern that Iranian scientists are researching nuclear-warhead designs. Iran maintains that its program is peaceful, and the upgraded enrichment machines are for medical purposes….

UN’s Agenda 21 Equals Organized ‘Snitching’
America was founded on the idea that private property is sacred. Americans cannot conceive their country without the right to own property. As they go about their daily lives, the United Nations Agenda 21 is methodically chipping away at our country’s solid foundation.
Under the guise of protecting the environment, water conservation, resources, reducing carbon footprint, reducing the use of electricity, smart grid, smart meters, cutting down the use of fossil fuels, separating people from their cars in favor of mass transit, biking and walking within five minutes of residence, returning land to wilderness by moving large rural and urban populations into high rise tenements in green zones, and social justice, the UN is taking over our lives….
No Number Of Broken Windows Can Save Us
I know it was predictable. But it is still pathetic. In the wake of Hurricane Irene ripping up the East Coast, although much, much weaker than was predicted, there are people salivating about how the billions in damage may provide a spark for the sluggish U.S. economy. I really wish I knew how many more times we have to suffer through this sort of tripe from people who obviously have never bothered to learn anything of importance except how to pound on keys and produce idiocy….

Hezbollah Now in Cuba
A year ago many prominent Israelis seemed smitten with Fidel Castro. “I thank you from the bottom of my heart,” wrote Israeli President Shimon Peres to Fidel Castro on Sept. 24, 2010. “I must confess that your remarks were, in my opinion, unexpected and rife with unique intellectual depth. Your words presented a surprising bridge between a harsh reality and a new horizon. You tried to sail to bigger seas, to show that a small geographical size doesn’t have to reflect human smallness.”
Federal law requires every school that receives federal funds to provide an educational program about the U.S. Constitution during the week of September 17th – Celebrate Constitution Day
Is your child’s school planning a special celebration of the U.S. Constitution? It should. Federal law requires every school that receives federal funds to provide an educational program about the U.S. Constitution during the week of September 17th. Every parent should call the school their child attends and ask if such a program is planned. If no such program is planned, then each parent should ask why, and offer to provide an educational video to help the school meet its obligation….
