Why Some People Believe It Is Okay To Murder Other People

WHY SOME PEOPLE BELIEVE IT IS OKAY TO MURDER OTHER PEOPLE

Hopefully this title can help make a person stop their scanning and do a double take. I can easily see a person saying to themselves “I didn’t see that correctly did I”. One of the problems for the human race is the absolute fact that many millions of people do believe in this idea. I am a 61 yr old white male and I have lived all of my life within the borders of the lower 48 States of the U.S.. Through my life experiences (mostly as a long haul truck driver) I have learned many things, as I hope that all people have been able to do.

I am going to tell you a true story where the center point would be about February of 1978 in a small town in south-west Virginia named Galax. I had shortly before this time gotten out of the military and had decided to live in Galax which is the town where I was born instead of going back to the town where I spent my growing up years at in northern Illinois, in a town named Belvidere. During my growing up years in Belvidere I attended the local Church of Christ, so when I moved to Galax I started attending services there at the South Side Church of Christ.

I only attended services there for three weeks. The Preacher with his wife and young daughter were from the state of Pennsylvania so they were not local folks, in fact they were Yankees, so I was a bit surprised that he had even been hired there in the first place. After services on the third Sunday evening the Preacher turned in a thirty-day notice. It was easy to see that there was something wrong going on at this Church, so as I was filling out of the building that evening I spoke with the Preacher to ask him why he was quitting because I was thinking about becoming a regular there and if there was something bad going on here I would like to know about it so to help me in deciding if I would continue attending there. The answer the Preacher gave me, I will tell you what he said toward the end of this story. But, what he told me opened my eyes to a question that had puzzled me for many years. The inner question within my thoughts was “why in some people’s minds is it okay to murder other people, why does anyone think they have the right to do that to anyone”?

In world history there have always been wars, both big and small, and for many different reasons. It is expected that people kill other people during a war. But it is not expected during a peaceful time. If you kill people during a war battle there will be no repercussions leveled against you. What I want to speak to you about is the killing of people in the civilian world. For an example, look at the violence in the south side of Chicago Illinois. It seems that most of this violence is about drugs and turf wars. Who or what gives a person the right to do all of this killing? Look at world history, it is filled with blood. Just looking at the US history, look at how all non-whites were treated for about 400 years. Didn’t matter whether you were Black, Hispanic, Asian, or Indian they were all disrespected horribly. The question again, what made some people think they had some God-given right to commit these acts of hate?

Now I want to go back to 1978 and my talking with the Preacher who was quitting. My eyes were opened by his answer. He told me that the people there at that congregation believed that the only people who had Souls were whites, to say the least, my shadow never darkened that doorway again. What my eyes were opened to was the fact that if a person looks at another person and in their eyes they are not looking at another human, just an animal, it makes it easy to kill that person if you believe that way. Throughout human history some of the most horrible acts of violence have been committed in the name of God. When you look toward the Middle East you see that most everyone in the region hates Israel and most Israelis have no love loss for Islamist. Almost everyday you hear of Jihad’s against people within and outside of their own faith. Us Christians should not get to uppity, we have had many people killed where both sides did what they did in the name of Jesus Christ. How much blood was spilled in wars between Protestants and Catholics? They both believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died and was raised the third day by the power of the Holy Spirit, so how does either side think that God will approve their actions? Hopefully now you will have a better understanding as to why some people think it is okay to kill someone else. In the name of God, no one has the right to be offensive toward anyone else and if there is no offence then there is no need for a defense. But that is only wishful thinking, humans are simply too egotistical to put others up onto their own plain and to quit thinking of others as being of less worth than themselves. Contrary to some religions beliefs and contrary to some groups beliefs all people are human beings and thus all people do have a Soul. Jesus told us plainly that no murderer has any part in the Kingdom of God. There was a time before the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ that only the Royal Bloodline could have salvation and by Jesus’s own words we (Gentiles) were considered not be a people. In fact Jesus in a parable referred to all of us Gentiles as dogs. Yes God is great, and humans are at times animal-like and, dumb as a stump.

(Theology) The War Will Never Ever End

THE WAR WILL NEVER EVER END

 

Today the headlines from Israel and Gaza, war, more deaths and destruction. In 1948 the Jewish people took back about 1% of the Holy Land and renamed it Israel, as it was, is, and will always be. The people that later became known as the Palestinians were displaced into the other 99% of the Middle-East. None of their Islamic brothers wanted them and they became know as a people without a Nation, displaced. The Arab people who did take them in like the people of Jordan soon threw them out because of the ways in which they acted toward their hosts. Even though their brothers who possess 99% of all the land, no one wants them in their countries. Instead, these “brothers” used them as a pawn for over sixty years, not supporting them, just using them.

Then the Israeli PM did that which he had no authority to do, he gave up some of the Israeli land in an effort to obtain peace with the Palestinian people and their Islamic neighbors. The PM gave them what is now called the West Bank and Gaza, hoping for peace. As I wrote then, Israel only accomplished giving these hate filled people closer bases into which to use to attack Israel and their people from.

God gave to the Israeli PM his just reward for giving away land that is no mans property to give away. He was told not to do it, he did it anyway. He quickly stroked, suffered, never repented and died. This is called the Holy Lands for a reason, this land above all of earths land is called Holy because it is where Christ will rule from the NEW Jerusalem after Satan and his angels are put into hell for ever.

Toward the end of times the ten demons who possess the ten human rulers here on earth new Jerusalem will be sub-planted by the three demon generals who sit at Satan’s left hand. These three “super leaders” will come from the three divisions of human powers. 1) the Americas, 2) Europe/Russia, 3) Asia. You see yet, the sign of God is 3, the sign of man is 6. The three men who would be gods, three of the last four “super” anti-Christs. Have you figured out yet who “The” anti-Christ is, The Root who sub-plants them from beneath is? Should be obvious, their boss, Satan himself, The Anti-Christ. He who would be God but who will instead only rule Hell once the trumpet of God sounds. He comes from beneath for two symbolic reasons. One is because where he now is “god” is geographically beneath the current world super powers where his base is. His throne is now upon the Temple Mount above the Wailing Wall as he demands “Submission” from all.

When Gods’ trumpet sounds, the world will then see and understand that they have been duped by their leaders and that these “super” leaders have been Satan’s henchmen. Friends, it will be too late for those who bowed to the will of Satan to repent. The demons will be cast straightway into Hell because they have already been judged. Satan will be cast into his new Kingdom after the last humans have had their turn before the  judgement seat of Christ. Unfortunately, billions of duped humans will spend forever there in the fire with him. This religion IS NOT a “great and peaceful religion” no matter what the buffoons say on TV. IT IS the most powerful attack on the people of earth that has ever been established.——-“THE WAR WILL NEVER END—UNTIL GODS’ TRUMPET SOUNDS”…..People wake up, or you are going to die twice, 1) the physical death, 2) Eternal separation from the presence and grace of God in Hell with Satan and his followers…… People, Please wake up!!!

(Theology Poem) The Second Death

THE SECOND DEATH

 

Tell me, can a man die a second time for the same crimes

Can a hanged man be brought back just to be hanged again

When the heart stops can you be revived, just to die again

When lightning strikes can electricity bring the heart back

These things are certainly true, yet they’re not of what I mean

 

Once we die and our brain has stopped, the first death has come

All who have ever lived, will be raised from the dead, one time

The time is coming when they all shall hear Christ’s voice, and arise

Those who did good in their life shall rise to God’s eternal love

For those who were evil they shall face the resurrection of damnation

 

The Father raised His Son Jesus Christ, who only had only once to die

In like manner shall all the followers of Christ be raised to eternal life

Those who knew not the Father nor the Son shall rise unto the flames

They who believed not the love of the Truth, they shall die once again

The Second Death is separation from God, into Hell’s eternal flames

 

 

 

(Christian Poem) Living In The Spirit Of Christ

LIVING IN THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST

 

The human brain can be separated from the host body

Yet the Spirit of God cannot be separated from the brain

Can the Soul of a human be taken from the grasp of God

The Spirit of God and the Soul of a man are not the same

If the Spirit of God indwells even Satan cannot separate you

 

Everyday man kills the body of many sheep belonging to Jesus

Christians love and meekness are counted as weakness to many

Yet Satan nor man can separate God’s love from His believers

Christ now sits at the right hand of the Father interceding for us

Satan can lay nothing at the charge of the Holy Spirit led believer

 

If the Spirit of Christ be within us, the Principalities hold their peace

Know ye not that all things work for the betterment of true Believers

God’s Spirit knows the hearts, minds and Souls of all who love Him

For those who love Him, His Spirit intercedes in our lives and prayers

Living in His Spirit, Christ gives us the glory of God’s love everlasting

 

 

(Biblical Educational Poem) Babylon And The Great Whore

BABYLON AND THE GREAT WHORE

 

Do we seek what is Truth, or do we seek flowers

Comfort of the flesh does not equal what is Truth

That which is Truth raises condemnation by the world

Lie to the world and they will praise all that you do

The wicked lay in wait to adorn the evil with gold

 

Babylon does not lay in ruin in western Iraq as some believe

You are told that which is true yet you do not see or understand

Some think the Power Cities of today is Revelation’s meaning

Understand, the residence of Saint Peter, this is the wicked city

The Language of the Mediterranean, Babylon shall cease to be

 

The Great Whore resides within the sphere of this ancient city

Babylon’s Great Whore has spread her evil upon the seven lands

Saint Peter was never the Rock upon which this Witch was built

She has billed Herself as the Bride of Christ, yet She will not be

People, understand, Rome is the City, the Vatican rides the Beast

 

 

(Wisdom Poem) Standing Against The Lord

STANDING AGAINST THE LORD

 

Why would a man stand against their own Creator

Man in his pride stands, before whom we should bow

The Lord knows our wickedness that we call triumphs

For riches, some do slay the widow and the fatherless

They through ignorance believe the Lord does not see

 

Foolish men do think themselves to be wise, yet are fools

The Lord knows the thoughts of all men, and they are empty

Without the Lords help the wise and the just would perish

The thrones of the wicked shall be consumed in the flames

For those who consume innocent blood end their own names

 

Through unbelief the Hebrews for 40 years dropped like flies

Do not harden your heart through lack of faith, lust and greed

The Lord formed the Land and the Sea, they are His footstool

God formed the eye to see, the ear to hear, the mind to learn

Standing against the Lord is like the wisdom of a Dung Beetle

(Faith Poem) The Cross

THE CROSS

 

Upon the Cross in silence He Suffered

Upon the Cross they mocked the Lord

At His feet the Lord’s Mother wept

Upon the Cross He bore our sins

Upon the Cross he paid our price

 

Mid day the darkness settled in

The Earth did tremble and did shake

Imagine the ones who nailed him there

Did Pilate really wash his sins away

High Priest dismayed the Temple torn

 

Abba Father Father it is done

The Son of God He took our place

His side pierced no bones did break

Laid in a Tomb to wait three days

Thank you Lord all our Souls you saved

 

Super Bowl: Eagles Coach Praises Jesus, Nick Foles Gives Glory to God

Super Bowl: Eagles Coach Praises Jesus, Nick Foles Gives Glory to God

(PHOTO: REUTERS/KEVIN LAMARQUE)Philadelphia Eagles Nick Foles celebrates with Jason Kelce after winning Super Bowl LII.

Doug Pederson, the head coach of freshly crowned Super Bowl LII champions the Philadelphia Eagles, gave glory to God in his reaction to the historic victory.

“I can only give the praise to my Lord and savior Jesus Christ for giving me this opportunity. And I’m going to tell you something. I’ve got the best players in the world, and it’s a resilient group,” Pederson said in a post-game interview, according to Philly.com on Sunday.

“I love this coaching staff. Mr. [Jeffrey] Lurie, the owner. And not only do we have the best fans in the world, we now have the best team in the world. Thank you guys.”

The Eagles’ 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots marked their first-ever Super Bowl title at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota, having previously lost title games in 1981 and 2005.

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, who was named the game’s Most Valuable Player, saw God’s hand in his path to the final, commentators who spoke with him said.

Tony Dungy, former head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and of the Indianapolis Colts, said in a post-game interview, according to NBC Sports:

“Nick Foles told me last week in Philadelphia he thought the Lord had him here for just this time. He knows this is Carson Wentz’s team, but he was ready to go tonight, and he played like a champion.”

Foles wept tears of joy when discussing the team’s victory, holding onto his daughter, Lily.

“All glory to God. Lily really likes this mic. She has no idea,” the MVP said.

Praising his Eagles teammates and coaching staff, he added: “To be here with my daughter, my wife, my teammates, this city … we’re very blessed.”

Foles has not kept his Christian faith a secret, describing himself on Twitter as a “believer in Jesus Christ, husband, father, son, brother.” The 29-year-old star athlete has said in the past that after his football career comes to an end, he is thinking of becoming a pastor.

“I want to be a pastor in a high school,” Foles said at a news conference ahead of the Super Bowl.

“It’s on my heart. I took a leap of faith last year and signed up to take classes at seminary. I wanted to continue to learn and challenge my faith. It’s a challenge because you are writing papers that are biblically correct. You want to impact people’s hearts,” he said.

Foles explained that high school is a very challenging time for young men and young women.

“So much temptation in this world, so much going on with social media and the internet that you want to talk to them and address it, and share all the weaknesses I have because I’ve fallen many times,” he stated.

“It’s something I want to do. I can’t play football forever. I’ve been blessed with an amazing platform and it’s just a door God has opened, but I still have a lot of school left and a long journey.”

Others, such as Eagles’ punter Donnie Jones, also placed their faith in God in the run-up to the major event.

“[I] always know that He’s going to be there, He’s going to take care of you,” Jones, who attended a Catholic High School in Baton Rouge, said of God.

“That’s kind of been the way of my career. I’ve moved around with five teams. When I didn’t know things were going to work out, He always put me in the right spot. You’ve got to have faith, believe,” he added, according to The Catholic Spirit.

(Poem Of Faith) Knowing Comfort

KNOWING COMFORT

 

Comfort is knowing and living a Holy Spirit led life

Though we be dead to the world in Christ ye shall arise

From the shout of an Archangel we shall see Jesus on High

The dead shall arise and they shall not die the second time

If we love the Lord we shall again see our loved ones smiles

 

It is wrong to be idle, do your work to help save all you know

Work with your hands yet study the will of God to survive

Without love, without faith, the Lord’s Spirit does not abide

For who will defraud their Mother and starve their own child

A father or mother who loves their child will give them comfort

 

It is the will of our Creator that we should all be morally clean

We have all been given the charge to be comfort one to another

The world cannot see nor understand the Spirit of God within us

Ask for what we need in God’s name, His Spirit intercedes for us

If we love Christ then keep His commandments and know His comfort

 

(Religious Poem) Our Comfort Is Through God’s Servant

OUR COMFORT IS THROUGH GOD’S SERVANT

 

The Lord has held His peace and stayed His hand

Yet the time comes when He will blow upon the flames

The Lord’s prophets speak before the events do happen

The Lord God created us yet many choose to bow to idols

Our Creator has given us a Covenant of Light many do shun

 

God will hold the hand of all of those who choose to love Him

Jew of Gentile the Holy One of Israel spilled His blood to save us

Do not fear those that loathe you and that try to bring you shame

They in their own wisdom are confounded and know not God’s light

By the power of the Lord’s right hand they shall all soon pass away

 

The human cannot begin to search the understanding of the Creator

Those that hope and wait on the Lord shall be blessed with His glory

The Paintbrush of the Lord is truly beautiful if we open our eyes to it

The Lord watches over the circle of the Earth and all of His creations

Be of good cheer the Temple Mount is His Throne the Earth His footstool
