    The link is to a different story for time's sake of posting this---Look, I love Rush Limbaugh. Especially the past year he was like a companion when I was working from home alone. However, it's time to get back to talk radio, discussion and problem solving. I honestly feel Rush would not like this weeks long tribute to him---I think he'd want to be honored but he'd want us to get back to brainstorming, calling in and making a difference. I have moved on to other talk radio between 12-3....Not out of disrespect but out of Respect for Rush to...
  • The Father Heart of God

    The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever. He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. (Psalm 103:7-10)Our God is love. He doesn’t merely have love, He is Love. To resist the LORD is to resist Love, and goodness and truth. Throughout the sacred scriptures God has revealed his heart of love to mankind, and the greatest revelation of Divine Love of all, is the cross of Jesus Christ. In that singular act of...
  • Jesus Said That by This the World Would Know We Were His Disciples

    When God sent Moses to the children of Israel in the book of Exodus, He gave him miraculous signs to perform so that the people would believe that God truly sent him. In the same way, when Elijah the prophet spoke to his unbelieving nation, he called down fire from heaven to prove that God had really spoken through him. Yet Jesus said to His disciples that it was by our love for one another, not by our miracles, that the world would know that we were His disciples. Isn’t that striking?To be sure, signs, wonders, and miracles were and...
  • A Very Modern Presumption...Love pt 8

    The misguided way our generation has been taught in church about the Love of God, is best typified by by a famous anecdote about the death of a very prominent poet and Atheist, Heinrich Heine in 1856. When He was asked by a Priest, on his deathbed, what if He had been wrong about God, as an atheist? He replied, “Gott wird mir vergeben, das ist seine Aufgabe””, or in English “God will forgive me, that is his job“.A good many modern Evangelicals and mainstream Christians in general have been taught false doctrines such as “self esteem” , “Unconditional love”,...
  • Luke 14 Warning against Presumption

    And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God. ( Luke 14:15)The Parable of the Great Feast in Luke 14 is all about the danger of presuming on God’s Love. Jesus is at a Sabbath feast, having been invited by one of the Pharisees. As he observed the other guests taking their seating, as close to the host of the feast as possible, He warned them about presuming upon their own status. In Jewish culture in the 1st century,...
  • The Love of God in it's context...Love pt 7

    God is Love (I John 4:8)And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation. (EXODUS 34:6-7)God is Love. Yet, that is not all that the Bible says about God. Scripture also reveals that, God is Light and in Him is no darkness at all....
  • How God (once) Loved the World...Love pt 6

    02/15/2021 4:08:23 PM PST · by pastorbillrandles · 4 replies
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. ( John 3:16)Why is it that Jesus, in John 3:16, doesn’t say that “God Loves the World…”, rather, even the English version of the Bible (rightly) speaks of God’s love in the past tense…? “For God so Loved the World…”.Does God love the World? Obviously the gospel of Jesus Christ crucified as a sacrifice for our sins, and resurrected, is still being offered to the World, so yes it is legitimate to say that God...
  • Love Sums Up The Whole of The Law of God...

    Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. (Romans 13:8-10)I believe that in God’s providence, Love has been my theme of late. It is a serious subject...

    Oh my dearly beloved, my heart rejoices greatly when I think about my Heavenly Father’s wondrous love towards you and me; sinners saved by His ETERNAL grace and mercy (John 3:16-17, 1 John 3:1-4)! To all of us that know God the Father by means of Jesus Christ our Savior, we are called His sons or children (John 1:12, Rom 8:14-19, 1 John 3:1-3)! Such wondrous truths cannot even begin to be fully comprehended by His redeemed ones (1 Cor. 2:9)! It will take all of FOREVER just to begin to experience and enjoy the PERFECT LOVE of our Heavenly...
  • America's Fatal Eros Love Addiction

    IFB ^ | 2/13/21
    n Roman mythology Cupid usually appeared as a winged infant carrying a bow and a quiver of arrows. Cupid’s arrows would induce wounds of inspired love or passion in all of his victims. Cupid is frequently invoked as a fickle, playful, and deviant (perverse) individual. Cupid sounds much like the lewd and licentious mainstream pop star artists of our day! Eros is the Greek name for this being and also the Greek word for love (i.e., LUST), which describes the unbridled sexual passions of fallen man (Rom. 1:24, 28, 29). The sole desire of Eros love is to find self-gratification...

Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings:...

    We love him, because he first loved us. ( I John 4:19)The World is heading into a dark night. Daniel chapter 8:23 puts it well, we have arrived at , “… the latter time …when the transgressors are come to the full…” . All of us will be put to the test of our faith and love by circumstances and pressures brought to bear, within and without. I asked the LORD for a teaching to help us prepare for this, and HE gave me a sermon on “Loving God”. I would like to share some of the highlights of what...

  • The Trinity - 1 Yet 3 - Makes Human Family-Love-Relationships Possible

    01/30/2021 10:37:02 AM PST · by JAG 5000 · 19 replies
    The Trinity is all about Love. The Trinity is heart-warming. It is the Trinity that makes human loving family relationships possible , , , but first let is "get the math out of the way." All orthodox Christians are Trinitarians, that is, we believe there is one God who exists in three Persons -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.. Unfortunately many people get bogged down in the seemingly mathematical contradiction involved in 1 yet 3. Forget trying to solve the 1 yet 3 thingy -- that's impossible to solve. Why? Because there is nothing on this earth comparable to 1...
  • Is It Racist or Bigoted to Oppose Homosexuality?

    Is It Racist to Oppose Homosexuality?by Dave Miller, Ph.D. One favorite ploy by those who wish to advance the homosexual agenda in America is to compare opposition to homosexuality with the discrimination of African Americans that has characterized some portions of the American population. If you oppose the legalization of homosexuality and favor a ban on same-sex marriage, you are “just like racists who oppressed blacks in the South.” The Bible certainly teaches very clearly that the mistreatment of one’s fellow human beings is sinful, and that God makes no distinction between humans on the basis of skin color, ethnicity,...

    The Word of God, King James Version | "In the Beginning, God..." | The Lord Jesus Christ, Creator of Heaven and Earth
    When you study and meditate on The Word and devote a special time at the beginning of your day to spend time with the Lord Jesus in prayer and thanksgiving, it is a form of worship in Him. Of course our Everlasting Father rejoices in this, as He very, truly only wants the very best for us--and knows the end from the beginning, for He is the Creator of All Things. Let us not go through our day today without acknowledging Christ in everything we set out to do, as He lovingly wants to guide our path, and to speak...

  • Beijing prepares for ‘World War III’ with US in South China Sea as military spending SOARS

    01/04/2021 3:09:47 AM PST · by RomanSoldier19 · 25 replies ^ | Jan 4, 2021 | By JAMES BICKERTON
    CONGRESS has approved a new $740.5bn (£541.9bn) defence spending bill overturning President Trump's veto as a Senator warned of "World War III" with Beijing. This was achieved by a cross-party alliance of Democrat and Republican lawmakers. The bill included a five year $18.5bn (£13.5bn) ‘Pacific Deterrence Initiative’ to boost the US military presence in the Pacific Ocean. Tensions between America and China have been surging in this region, with the US refusing to accept Beijing’s claim of sovereignty over the South China Sea. The new legislation, which came to 4,500 pages, was drafted by the Senate armed services committee. It’s...
