Trouble In This World

Sometimes when I look at the posts in my blog reader list, I shake my head in disbelief as to what is happening in this crazy, corrupt, and vile world.  It seems like so many of the evil perpetrators are not being caught, arrested, tried, and jailed as would be the case in a “perfect world.”  Jesus told us that “in this world, you (we) will have trouble.”  Jesus never minced words and told the utmost truth in all circumstances.  That is why I believe in Him and follow Him.  He is the Living Word and the Bible is the written Word of God.

When the news of the day gets REALLY crazy, I’m so glad that God gave us the ability to have a sense of humor.  It is a kind of relief from many of the cares and troubles of this world.

For instance.

Here are two examples that appeared on my blog news feed over the past few days:

It is funny to see the faces of people who have, and are, trying to undermine the American people in a swamp, circling the drain.  What is not funny is the realization of the terrible things they believe in, have done, and continue to do that hurt everyday Americans.

As a Christian conservative woman, I understand that people like this hate me, hate my beliefs, hate my advocacy for Jesus Christ and God’s Word, the Bible; and attempt to do everything they can to diminish me and those like me.  The derogatory phrase, “those who cling to their guns, Bibles, and religion” comes to mind.

Now, this one is funny because the fake news “dossier” that we now know that HiLIARy and Podesta devised and paid for, and the minions in the media of mass deception (who all cried when she lost the election and may even scream at the sky once again as the anniversary of the date of her loss approaches), put forth lie after lie after lie over the past 11 months in order to make it appear that President Trump colluded with Russia.  It ended up backfiring…big time!  It just blew up in her face.

Hat tip for the graphic:  Pastor Ward Clinton’s blog.   Also see Hillary Didn’t Know…

Also, recall that Hillary labeled a large portion of Americans as “a basket of deplorables.”

Oh wait…one more!

One sentence made me laugh:

“What could possibly go wrong???”

Then, even after having a few laughs, the reality of this fallen world creeps in yet again.  I was going to list some here but all one needs to do is to type in any evil proclivity into a search engine and you will get a disgusting eyeful of evidence.

I often write about the topic of “a woman’s right to choose” (code word for acceptance of abortion) at this blog.

My viewpoint?

Choose Life, Your Mother Did!

When someone tells me that I have “no right to tell women what to do with their own bodies” (which is code word for allowance and acceptance for abortion) and claims that it’s not “evil,” “abhorrent,” “murder of a baby in the womb,” etc.; what they are doing is actually advocating for their own fleshly beliefs and desires.  Even some Christians are guilty of this!  They see this particular idea and definition of “choice” as  more important than LIFE, as well as that new spirit that has been created within them by God through being born again in Jesus Christ.

 

It is a war within between the flesh and the spirit.

 

Excerpt from As Seen Through the Eyes of Faith: The War Within

The Bible teaches us that when we come to Christ and are born again, we become “…a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2 Cor. 5:17)

God creates within us a new spirit, a new man, a new nature, born in His image, in the likeness of the Spirit of God.

He gives us new desires. He gives us a hunger for righteousness and holiness and a longing to please our Heavenly Father.

Through the power of the Holy Spirit who comes to dwell within us, the Comforter sent by God helps alongside and empowers our new man to walk after and seek after those things which are right.

However, we still dwell in the same old fleshly body with the same old sin nature. And therein lies the war.

“For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.”  (Rom. 7:18-19)

The joy of having the Lord in my life is most important, precisely because every other type of happiness proceeds from it.

Colossians 3:16 – Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.

David Jeremiah writes:

It’s not a “positive sentence” [like a typical mantra from man], it is manna from heaven because it is a promise from God.

[Self-control] is a battle that begins in our minds.  Our minds as well as our hearts need to be focused on God and His Word.  Daily Bible reading is the one habit that will make you happier–and holier–every day.

The Bible contains all the information needed for life’s challenges.  Its words provide strategies for every situation we face.  They are life-changing and life-giving.  God’s promises are never-failing, and His truths are infallibly reliable.

The Eyes of Faith: Three Spiritual Enemies

Excerpts:

Our enemy is that old deceiver and liar, the devil. But he works with two associates to tempt us and keep us from the victory. These companions of the devil in his endeavors are the world and the flesh.

“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” (1John 2:16)

When we become a Christian, the Bible teaches us that God has “…delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.” (Col. 1:13)

That is why the Bible tells us in 1 Peter that the devil goes about as a “roaring lion” seeking “whom he may devour”.

This is done by understanding the way that the devil uses the world and flesh together to deceive us and draw us into sin and iniquity.

The enemy’s goal is to wound us to the point of losing hope and faith, so that we give up and our sins become presumptuous to the point that we are unable to be used of God.

“If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:” (Psalm 66:18)

“If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.” (2Ti 2:21)

    When I think about Jesus “overcoming the world” I realize that the ultimate need for mankind is to have our sins forgiven. The only way was for God the Father to provide a Savior in order to accomplish this goal. When Jesus willingly went to the cross for our sakes, he became the propitiation for our sins- the sins of the world- and through genuine belief in Him, we are cleansed of all unrighteousness. His death on the cross was necessary in order to take on all the sins of the world ( when I think of the enormity of that, it boggles my mind!) and our belief in Him saves us from the penalty that we deserve! His resurrection from the dead proved that He is God ( the second Person of the Trinity) and thus He has the power to save us from an eternity without God.

    Hey Christine! I noticed that tomorrow we’ll see who will be the first to be indicted in the Russian collusion hoax. I kind of feel for the first fall guy/gal … We all know Mueller is doing nothing but covering Hillary’s and Obama’s corruption. It really makes me sick. The corruption is so clear now that we (I for sure) do not believe anything put out by the media or any government entity. I hope you’re doing okay. Rina’s sister had to evacuate her home the other day. She lives in Marietta. I think her home came out in-scathed thank the Lord.

      Hi Steve,

      People are speculating just whom corrupt Mueller is going to “indict.” We know it won’t be HiLIARy or Obummer! Maybe Podestas? If he “goes there” and names Manafort or any other former Trump associate, then we know that it’s all a ruse to cover up for the REAL perpetrators!

      I don’t know whether or not you ever visit The Gateway Pundit, but I just finished reading a new post that might interest you.

      The Gateway Pundit: TRUMP GOES THERE: Blasts Democrats For Using Terrible Witch Hunt for EVIL POLITICS!

      Yes! I agree that the corruption and cover-up for HilLIARy, Obummer and the Demon Dems is so clear that anyone with half a brain could figure it out! However, those whose minds have been so corrupted and obviously veiled from the truth will continue to spit and spin as much and as hard as they can to cover their egregious crimes! It makes me sick, too! These criminals are spawns from satan, enemies of God and man!

      We are doing well, thank you. Hope you and Rina are doing well. I’m so sorry to hear about Rina’s sister needing to evacuate her home and hope that her home made it through and that she is able to return to it.

      P.S. Another blog that is a daily read for me is The Last Refuge (a.k.a. “The Conservative Treehouse”) That blog has a huge following and sometimes I comment there, too. Some posts gather 100’s of comments, even over 1,000! I have learned a lot from the comment section as well as the blog.
