The RACIST Democratic Party: Here Is All You Need To Know

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

As a Jew, I was born into the Democratic Party. Most Jews are. It seems that this is true in Black families as well. When a Jew or a Black changes parties and becomes Republican or just plain Conservative, they are disparaged and vilified to the point of being shunned by family and communities.

My mother was so much more upset at the fact that I had become a Conservative, than knowing that I believed in Jesus Christ as my Savior!

I ran across a great website – the article is from 2012, but absolutely needs to be read by Blacks across our nation. Many of them are finally waking up to reality, but sadly many are still so duped.

I am going to print this article in its entirety. Please share this with all of your black friends, neighbors and co-workers before they go into the polling places and…

UPDATE – Charlottesville – It Could Have Been Prevented – Guess Whose Civil Rights Were Not Protected

Judge Napolitano on how far free speech can go

Guess whose civil rights were not protected.

UPDATE AT BOTTOM OF PAGE

The incidents of the deaths and violence at Charlottesville, VA, on August 14, 2017, are so great that they can affect the lives, families and businesses of everybody who is an American citizen. Therefore, I am sending this post to many people who are outside of the my normal delivery scheme.

The deaths of the three people in Charlottesville, VA last weekend are totally senseless. There were many times for local and state leaders to do just that, “lead;” and prevent those deaths from occurring. At the bottom of this page is a time line of events that was published by ABC News. The report shows things that the usual liberal news outlets have not mentioned in their reporting, or lack thereof.

It has been all too often that news reports have come to our radio and tv sets, have been wrong, and had to be changed or retracted, because the news reporting agencies “jumped the gun,” and provided data that had not been determined by critical analysis. That is what has happened with the reporting of the tragedy at Charlottesville. The President made a brief statement on the evening of the killings; he spoke on that which had been made known to him. Liberal media and democrats have continued an attack on the President because of his lack of “jumping to judgment.”

If you read ABC’s chronology of events, you will see that caution was necessary for the President to make an accurate statement. Also, you will see that the rush to judgment has greatly altered the truth of the reporting of this tragedy. First of all, it will be helpful to watch the following news videos that will shed light on the necessity for those in media and government to have all of the facts before anyone makes a definite statement of fault in this, and in other similar incidents. Judge Napolitano’s interview matches closely with the acts of the ABC report. But, before the videos are shown of Napolitano, Carlson, and Hannity, it must be said that those types of interviews are not shown on the liberal news outlets of ABC, CBS, NBC, CNBC or MSNBC.

Consider how the Governor of Missouri did not do all that was necessary to keep a town from being burned and looted.

Michael Brown Stepdad BURN THIS BITCH DOWN

After the Grand Jury made its decision to not indict Ferguson, MO police office, Darren Wilson, for the murder of Michael Brown, is when the “burn the bitch down” incitements began. The burning of the city began and continued for days, causing local black business owners to lose their businesses due to fires and looting. No charges were filed against any of the rioters in Ferguson, MO. No charges of incitement to riot were filed against the people who yelled, “burn this bitch down.” We all remember the chant, “hands up don’t shoot. Well; it didn’t happen. Democrat Governor Jay Nixon waited too long to protect the city.

Democrats and Obama ARE SCARED! Loretta Lynch: “Need more ‘marching, blood, death on streets”

Loretta Lynch said that our nation needs people to die while protesting. Well…Mrsssss. Lynch. Your wish has been granted.

CONSIDER THE TIMELINE OF EVENTS OF AUGUST 14.

In February, the Charlottesville City Council voted to remove the Robert E. Lee statue. That is something that city leaders can lawfully do.

In March, a lawsuit was filed by several groups and individuals, against the removal of the statue. That is something that citizens can lawfully do.

In May, a group protesting the removal of the statue gathered, carrying torches, in what was then called Robert E. Lee Park, where the statue is located. They were met by counter-protesters. It was not said if either of those groups had obtained a permit to assemble.

In June, a plaque was removed from in front of the Robert E. Lee statue. If that action was performed by order of the City Council, it was lawful. If it was performed by anyone else, an unlawful act occurred.

In July, Robert E. Lee Park was renamed Emancipation Park by the City Council. That action was lawful

On Friday, August 11, the Democrat Governor of Virginia spoke in an antagonistic against “Unite The Right, white nationalistic rally. Even though the Governor may have disagreed with the protesting group, it was his responsibility as the chief law enforcement officer of the State of Virginia to promote an atmosphere of constitutional acceptance of the free speech, against the local government, that would take place the next morning. It was not his duty to screen the speech of the protesters, or to cast unfavorable light on the protesters. The governor did not know if other citizens may have been present in the park, also peacefully assembling and observing the protest.
2:55 p.m.

On Friday evening, a judge that the protesters could have their protest, as had been scheduled. That which is important to know, is that the demonstrators against the City’s decision had been granted a permit to have the demonstration. The judge could also have allowed another location for the demonstration to be conducted, which would have been easier for the protection of the demonstrators.

A statement by the Police Chief of Charlottesville, and filmed by CNN, can be found at the bottom of this page. In the statement, the Chief said that he regrets not responding properly to the events of the day. He used the term, “alt right group,” in reference to the demonstrators against the statue removal. That is a new term to me. He also mentioned that, at 5:15 into the interview, those in Emancipation Park were ordered to leave. The demonstrators had the permission of a judge to be in the park. Local and state law enforcement did not protect the rights of the demonstrators to be in the park. At 8:00, a reporter said that he saw people being assaulted, with police officers standing by and not stopping those acts. At 8:20, the chief said that they (PD) cleared the park. With that action, the chief was stating that those who were lawfully in the park were being attacked by people who did not have a permit to be there. At 9:37, the chief said that he had regrets for not acting differently toward the violence. At 11:25, a reporter stated that police officers were told to not make arrests without the permission of the mayor.

In retrospect, it is easy to see that the Democrat Governor, Democrat Mayor, and Charlottesville PD had plenty of time to prepare of the demonstration of August 14. They knew of the possibilities of violence that could take place. The Governor and Mayor acted as democrats, instead of leaders of the state and city.

The first amendment to our nation’s constitution states:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

There are two parties to the first amendment, which are “the what,” and “the who.” The “what” is the guarantee of the constitution to free speech and peaceful assembly, to petition the government for a redress of grievances. The “who” is any citizen of the United States Of America. Notice that the constitutional guarantees relate to government issues, and not others. A business owner can determine which speech is permitted in such an enterprise. The “who” is guaranteed by the “what” to be able to speak against the government, and to be able to assemble as a group to speak against the government. Regardless of how repugnant that speech is, it is still protected speech, and has to be protected by the government, which includes protecting the people who are speaking. There is no requirement of the constitution for anyone who is assembling to petition a grievance against the government for grievances, to tell anyone in advance about the content of their speech or petition. The government is not allowed to question our speech or reason to assemble. The government must permit our speech to be free, and our assembly to be protected from those who may agree with the content of our speech, or the reason for our reason for assembly. The Virginia governor was acting irresponsibly when he spoke out against the demonstrators, who had a constitutional right to petition the government in Emancipation Park. He knew that it would stir up flames of hatred. The same thing can be said of the Mayor. He should have made the park a safe place for the demonstrators. The Police Chief should have kept the demonstrators safe from the people who entered into the park and attacked them.

It makes no difference to me if the state of Robert E. Lee is maintained in a park, or in a museum, but history can not be erased. (A post will follow that relates to slavery in Africa, and other parts of the world.)

https://www.thoughtco.com/african-slavery-101-44535

The thing that is terribly frightening to me is to think that mob rule can act in the place of our constitution. We elect officials to make decisions, such as moving monuments, as opposed to having historic markers destroyed by people who do not have the lawful right to do so. It is frightening to me to think that the majority of our media, and of our government, do not know the protections that our constitution provides for all of our citizens. Of course, Civics is no longer taught in our schools; neither are cursive writing and sentence diagraming. These three casualties are a result of the Department of Education, which was begun under Democrat President Jimmy Carter. After the shooting in the church at Charleston, President Obama gave a measured statement, and made one of more content later. That is what President did, concerning the violence and killings that took place at Charlottesville. It is amazing that the liberal press, ABC, CBC, NBC, CNBC, MSNBC are more interested in the words of our President, as opposed to the true story of the violence that was allowed to happen, and should not have happened last Saturday.

UPDATE -BEGIN

So, what can we say? It’s very easy! Two police officers and one female civilian died due to a Democrat Governor and Mayor, and a City Police Chief, that did not follow the constitution as it relates to protecting the rights of a group who had gained permission to exercise their rights of free speech and assembly to petition the government.

So, going back to my opening question. “Guess whose civil rights were violated and not protected.” The civil rights of all citizens of the United States of America are guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America. Whether we agree, or disagree, with a person, or with a group of persons, our constitution demands that their
first amendment rights be protected, as follows:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

The people of the “Unite The Right, white nationalistic rally” were granted their constitutional rights of “free speech, for their people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” A Federal Judge granted the rights of that group. However, the judge did not grant the right of any other group to interfere with his ruling. The Governor of Virginia, the Mayor of Charlottesville, and the Chief of Police of Charlottesville did not protect the rights of those “whose right were guaranteed by the Federal judge.’ The deaths that occurred in Charlottesville were as a result of the Democrat Governor and Mayor not demanding that the Charlottesville Police Department protect the civil rights of the people of the “Unite The Right, white nationalistic rally.” If more law enforcement personnel were needed, the governor could have provided extra police protection. But, the Democrat governor did not do that. We may not agree with the person, or group of people, being protected by the First Amendment, but we still have to protect their constitutional rights.

UPDATE – END

After the city of Charlottesville had lobbied for a change in venue due to the size of the event, a judge ruled that the event could remain in Emancipation Park as planned.

Hundreds of white nationalists, some wielding torches, gathered at the University of Virginia ahead of Saturday’s larger rally. Their chants included phrases such as “white lives matter,” “you will not replace us,” and the Nazi-associated phrase “blood and soil.” The mayor of Charlottesville called it a “cowardly parade of hatred, bigotry, racism, and intolerance.” xxxxx

Pre-Tribulation Rapture – A Discussion

Click onto any highlighted word to see the videos and text on the blog.

Valid Arguments Against The Pre-Tribulation #Rapture ? NO!

The opening video shows a wonderful discussion that relates to the rapture of the church. Drs. David Reagan and Thomas Ice are recognized as being Bible scholars, having an exceptional understanding of the scriptures that relate to the end times, which is also known as eschatology.

Many people discount the truth of the rapture (English, rapture, from “to seize, catch up, snatch away;” Latin, rapio; Greek, harpazo). The people with whom I have had such a discussion have not taken the time that is necessary to study scriptures that explain the end times. A key verse of scripture that explains the severity of the time of tribulation is Matthew 24:21, “For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will,” (commentary on verse shown below).

By having an understanding of how bad it will be during the tribulation, it will be easier to understand why Christ will not leave His saints, “the bride of Christ,” on earth during that time. For someone to think that the church will have to go through the tribulation, is to believe that every born again man and woman, as well as every infant and little child, will be present when the Judgments of God are unleashed upon the earth. Those judgments, “seal, trumpet and bowl” judgments, are fully described in Revelation, Chapters 6-19. The rapture is for born again believers of Christ. The tribulation is for those people who are not born again, and are known as “earth dwellers,” Revelation 3:10, 6:10, 8:13, 11:10, 13:8, 13:14, 17:8. Please take time to study this post; study it often.

Check out the following link for a more detailed explanation of the rapture:
https://www.gotquestions.org/rapture-of-the-church.html

Matthew 24:21 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Christ discusses the great tribulation with His disciples, who are Jews.

21 For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will.

24:21 great tribulation. The words “has not been” and “nor ever shall be”—along with the description that follows—identify this as the yet-future time in which God’s wrath shall be poured out upon the earth (see note on Rev. 7:14). Jesus’ descriptions of the cataclysms that follow closely resemble the outpouring of divine wrath described in the bowl judgments of Rev. 16 and His subsequent appearing in Rev. 19 (see note on v. 30).(MacArthur Study note)

Does God Really Care About, “Who Wins The Big Game?”

Auburn’s Final Play in Iron Bowl: Chris Davis Return for TD

Click onto any blue letter or number to see the videos and text on the blog.

The college football season begins on Saturday, August 26th. There are many teams that have already made up their minds that they will be chosen to compete for the national championship in a four-team, two-game playoff. All of the players have been sharpening their skills, and being told by their coaches how to “play as a team.” But, really! Does care about winners and losers in football?

The opening video is one of my favorite ones in all of football. It shows how Auburn beat Alabama in the last play of their game in 2013. Will this year’s College Football Championship Game end in such an exciting manner; who knows? But, the question still remains about God and football, “Does God Really Care About Who Wins The Big Game,” or any other game? By the way, the Head Coach of Auburn is Gus Malzahn; he is a true, “brother in the Lord,” which means that he knows Christ as his Lord and Savior.

Psalm 18:1-3 New King James Version (NKJV)

God the Sovereign Savior

1 I will love You, O Lord, my strength.
2 The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;
My God, my strength, in whom I will trust;
My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
3 I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised;
So shall I be saved from my enemies.

The movie, “Facing The Giants,” is one that deals with many different relational situations. One of the key lines in the movie is spoken by Coach Grant Taylor when he says, “if we win, we praise Him (God); and if we lose we praise Him.” Another word to remember from the coach is, “give it your best, and leave the rest to God.” One of the best statements was made by Brooke, the coach’s wife, “nothing is impossible when God is on your side.” There are five key events that should be watched for. 1. Coach getting a new truck. 2. Coach getting a $6,000 a year pay raise. 3. Coach buying flowers for his wife. 4. Coach and his wife having a very romantic dinner. And, 5. The moon lit sky after the dinner. The following two paragraphs contain a Wikipedia description of the movie.

In 2003, Grant Taylor (Alex Kendrick) is the head coach at Shiloh Christian Academy, and has yet to post a winning record in his six-year tenure. After his seventh season begins with a three-game losing streak, the players’ fathers start making noises about replacing Coach Taylor with defensive coordinator Brady Owens. This is not the only problem that Grant is facing. His car is breaking down, and he discovers that he is the reason that his wife Brooke cannot become pregnant.

Grant Taylor creates a new coaching philosophy and decides to praise God, no matter what the result. At the same time he guides and urges each one of his players to give the maximum effort, and motivates them to believe that they can win under God’s provision. From that point on, the Shiloh Eagles (Grant’s team) lose only one more game for the rest of the season and advance all the way to the state championship game against the three-time defending champion, the Richland Giants. Even though the Eagles have only a third as many players as the Giants, the Eagles hold their own and ultimately win the game on a 51-yard field goal from a backup kicker who had never kicked more than a 35-yarder before. Grant’s prayers to have children are also answered as Brooke conceives after four years.

The following link will give you an introduction to the movie. It will take you to one of the most emotional scenes in the movie. The setting deals with the giants of life that the coach faces, including the inability of him and his wife to have children.

The full length movie of “Facing The Giants” is available for you to see by way of the iTBN link which follows.

God’s Love For Israel

Text

Jeremiah 30:3 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

3 For behold, days are coming,’ declares the Lord, ‘when I will restore the fortunes of My people Israel and Judah.’ The Lord says, ‘I will also bring them back to the land that I gave to their forefathers and they shall possess it.’”

Lesson Preview

Ezekiel 9 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Date: 594 B.C. (Scofield Study Bible)

Place: Jerusalem, Southern Kingdom Of Judah

Notice the personal involvement of God in His judgment of the sin of Jerusalem. We can easily see that “sin is serious stuff!”

Consider verse 9.

9 …“The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great, and the land is full of bloodshed, and the city full of perversity;”

Notice the note on verse 3.

3 “Now the glory of the God of Israel had gone up from the cherub, where it had been, to the threshold of the temple…” (My note) In due time, the Glory of the Lord will leave the temple in Jerusalem, and will not return until the time of “the Millennium/Kingdom of God/future kingdom of Messiah/Millennial reign of Christ.” When the Glory of the Lord leaves the temple,(having fully departed (Ez 11:22, 23), the Glory will not return until (Ez 43:2–7). There will be no such return of the Glory of the Lord when the temple is rebuilt in 515 BC (Ezra 6:16), or when a temple is built during the tribulation (Daniel 9:27; Matthew 24:15; Second Thessalonians 2:4; Revelation 13:14-15). Without the Glory of the Lord, a “temple” is only a “structure,” having a floor, four walls and a roof.)

Notice in verse 4 how righteous Jews will escape God’s judgment by having a mark placed on their foreheads. (“put a mark on the foreheads;” see MacArthur note.)

Notice in verses 5-7 that God’s judgment was all-encompassing, beginning in the temple.

Notice in verses 8-11, the conversation between Ezekiel and God. Ezekiel was pleading for mercy. God reaffirmed that sin must be judged, using the word “perversity, to describe the actions of the Jews of Jerusalem (that which is perverted, perverted justice…Hebrew 4297. “mutteh”)

Lesson Text: Ezekiel 9

The Wicked Are Slain

1 Then He called out in my hearing with a loud voice, saying, “Let those who have charge over the city draw near, each with a deadly weapon in his hand.” 2 And suddenly six men came from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with his battle-ax in his hand. One man among them was clothed with linen and had a writer’s inkhorn at his side. They went in and stood beside the bronze altar.

3 Now the glory of the God of Israel had gone up from the cherub, where it had been, to the threshold of the temple. And He called to the man clothed with linen, who had the writer’s inkhorn at his side; 4 and the Lord said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.”

5 To the others He said in my hearing, “Go after him through the city and kill; do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity. 6 Utterly slay old and young men, maidens and little children and women; but do not come near anyone on whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary.” So they began with the elders who were before the temple. 7 Then He said to them, “Defile the temple, and fill the courts with the slain. Go out!” And they went out and killed in the city.

8 So it was, that while they were killing them, I was left alone; and I fell on my face and cried out, and said, “Ah, Lord God! Will You destroy all the remnant of Israel in pouring out Your fury on Jerusalem?”

9 Then He said to me, “The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great, and the land is full of bloodshed, and the city full of perversity; for they say, ‘The Lord has forsaken the land, and the Lord does not see!’ 10 And as for Me also, My eye will neither spare, nor will I have pity, but I will recompense their deeds on their own head.”

11 Just then, the man clothed with linen, who had the inkhorn at his side, reported back and said, “I have done as You commanded me.”

The Romans Road

Consider the following verses that explain the road to salvation.

Romans 3:23 New King James Version (NKJV)

23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Romans 5:8 New King James Version (NKJV)

8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 6:23 New King James Version (NKJV)

23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 10:13 New King James Version (NKJV)

13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Consider the following video discussion of sin, as it relates to those living in the world today.

Will God overlook our sin, or must He deal with it?

In Ezekiel 9, Jerusalem Jews were saved from the judgment of God because of their righteousness (9:4). In the book of Romans, the Apostle Paul explains in Romans 3:21-22 that righteousness comes through faith in Christ, to all who believe in Him as Savior and Lord.

Romans 3:21-22 New International Version (NIV)

Righteousness Through Faith

21 But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. 22 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile,

Notes – Ezekiel 9 – MacArthur Study Bible (Everybody should own a MacArthur Study Bible)

9:1 charge over the city. God summoned His servant angels to carry out His judgments. These angelic executioners (cf. Dan. 4:13, 17, 23) came equipped with weapons of destruction.
9:2 six men. Angels can appear like men when ministering on earth (cf. Gen. 18:1; Dan. 9:20–23). One man. He was superior to the others. Linen indicates high rank (cf. Dan. 10:5; 12:6). Perhaps this was the Angel of the Lord, the pre-incarnate Christ (see note on Ex. 3:2). He had all the instruments of an oriental scribe to carry out His task (vv. 4, 11).
9:3 the glory…had gone up. The glory of God departs before the destruction of the city and temple. The gradual departure of God from His temple is depicted in stages: the glory resides in the temple’s Most Holy Place, between the wings of the cherubs on each side of the ark of the covenant over the mercy seat, then leaves to the front door (9:3; 10:4), later to the E gate by the outer wall (10:18, 19), and finally to the Mt. of Olives to the E, having fully departed (11:22, 23). The glory will return in the future kingdom of Messiah (43:2–7).
9:4 a mark on the foreheads. Since God’s departure removed all protection and gave the people over to destruction, it was necessary for the angelic scribe (Angel of the Lord) to mark for God’s preservation the righteous who had been faithful to Him. Those left unmarked were subject to death in Babylon’s siege (v. 5). The mark was the indication of God’s elect, identified personally by the pre-incarnate Christ. He was marking the elect (cf. Ex. 12:7). Malachi 3:16–18 indicates a similar idea. Cf. Rev. 7:3; 9:4. The marked ones were penitent and were identified for protection. Here was a respite of grace for the remnant. The rest were to be killed (vv. 5–7).
9:8 Will You destroy all? Ezekiel is fearfully aroused in prayer because the judgment on Jerusalem and Israel is so vast. God replies that pervasive sin demands thorough judgment (vv. 9, 10), yet comforts him by the report that the faithful had been marked to be spared (v. 11). Cf. Rom 11:1, 2, 25–27.

The book of Ezekiel show’s God’s prophetic purposes being fulfilled in the lives and nation of Israel. Jimmy DeYoung has called the book of Ezekiel “the timeline of the Jews.”

Purpose of Writing: https://www.gotquestions.org/Book-of-Ezekiel.html

Ezekiel ministered to his generation who were both exceedingly sinful and thoroughly hopeless. By means of his prophetic ministry he attempted to bring them to immediate repentance and to confidence in the distant future. He taught that: (1) God works through human messengers; (2) Even in defeat and despair God’s people need to affirm God’s sovereignty; (3) God’s Word never fails; (4) God is present and can be worshiped anywhere; (5) People must obey God if they expect to receive blessings; and (6) God’s Kingdom will come.

Eschatology

Eschatology is the study of the teachings in the Bible concerning the end times and of the period of time dealing with the return of Christ and the events that follow. Those events, follow, but are not in the order as shown: the Resurrection, the Rapture, the Tribulation, the Millennium, the Binding of Satan, the Three witnesses, the Final Judgment, Armageddon, and The New Heavens and the New Earth. In one form or another most of the books of the Bible deal with end-times subjects.

Background

My study of the end times goes back to the year of 1976. There have been many people who have helped me to understand this exciting part of God’s Holy Word. There have also been many credible source documents that I have studied, “over and over.” The following individuals (some alive, and some deceased) are recognized for their knowledgeable of matters that relate to the end times. Their study materials have helped me to prepare this series of posts on “God’s Plan For The Ages.” Their names are presented below in no special order of importance. It is easy to research their qualifications through the internet.
