Luke 24 [The tomb is empty]

24 But very early on Sunday morning the women went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. 2 They found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. 3 So they went in, but they didn’t find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 As they stood there puzzled, two men suddenly appeared to them, clothed in dazzling robes.

5 The women were terrified and bowed with their faces to the ground. Then the men asked, “Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive? 6 He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Remember what he told you back in Galilee, 7 that the Son of Man must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and that he would rise again on the third day.”

Most amazingly, it was just this past week that I heard on the radio the answer to the “3 days” riddle that Christians have been struggling with as regards Jesus’ time in the tomb  in relation to the Sabbath in the scripture. It was from a preacher who lived over 60 years ago and his show Dr. Barnhouse & the Bible. He said that during that week (Passover), the Wednesday was also a Sabbath day. Crucified on Wednesday, risen on Saturday, the regular Sabbath. He specifically mentioned he is not troubled at all by the Church having the tradition wrong as regards good Friday and Easter Sunday. It all made sense to me as I have heard some of the other contortions to try and get the days to come out right.

Hi Eda, trebuie să spune-mi ceva despre tine, ai fost frumos destul ca să-l lovească pe mai multe din posturile mele, şi EU sunt curios cum cineva din Romania chiar aflat despre blogul meu minut putin. Vă place parea neobisnuita pentru un poet (sau astfel încât I-ar fi crezut). Jim

You can’t say that!

We have to give up our freedom for security!

“To argue against any breach of liberty  from the ill use that may be made of it,  is to argue against liberty itself,  since all is capable of being abused.”

The police state

“The test for whether one is living in a police state is  that those who are charged with enforcing the law  are allowed to break the laws with impunity.”

– Jon Roland
(1944-) founder of the Constitution Society

[Waco, Ruby Ridge, our borders... even on NPR the other day there was the audio from the cop mikes as they rousted a homeless guy (James Boyd) in a tent in Albuquerque, NM. He didn't comply fast enough with their shouted commands to put his hands behind his head. They shot him dead. The fact that he was unarmed and wasn't actually a threat to anyone doesn't seem to trouble the citizenry. Cops just put forth their typical defense, "He could have had a gun!" Yeah... he could have had a lot of things, but he didn't. Why did you shoot him? The fact that there are slob cops is not the real shocker, it is that they are allowed to walk. Where are the citizen review boards? Oh that's right, the cop shops assure us we don't need them. This deadly ignorance of the populace wouldn't be so bad, but it is taking me with them. In Santa Rosa, California the cops murdered 13 year old Andy Lopez as he walked home with his toy replica gun. Everybody walked. The other little key ingredient to all this, is where is your precious "conservative" talk radio host during all this? Deafening silence. - Jim Roach]

From the “it figures” category …

aaa b michoacan

["Mexican Authorities Arrest Vigilante Leader", Sunday Des Moines Register 4/6.] Years ago I had read where the people in the interior of Mexico were demonstrating for the right to possess firearms. Their message to the government was, “if you aren’t going to protect us, let us protect ourselves”.

Now 15 years later, they have. The Mexican government was so incompetent and corrupt, the Mexican people in the region of Yurecuaro (Michoacán), got hold of weapons, formed their own vigilante groups and kicked out the drug cartels. Evidently there was some bickering between groups, and THEN the Mexican government steps in to arrest one of the leaders Enrique Hernandez Salcedo.

Doesn’t that about figure? Decades of drug cartels shooting up the landscape and terrorizing the villagers, and the corrupt Mexican government is nowhere to be found. But they CAN be found when it comes time to arrest the vigilantes.

It reminds me of our own outlaw government. They are completely impotent against inner city drug gangs and controlling our borders, but they WILL infiltrate and takedown patriot groups and militias. They can spy on Americans. They can invade our privacy. They can read our emails and listen to our phone calls, but can they stop a Boston bombing? Nope. Can they bust child prostitution rings in the large metropolitan  areas? Nope. Can they bust all those child porn internet sites? Nope. But they can inflate charges against somebody like Randy Weaver and bust him. Stopped a real crime wave there they did.

The governments of Mexico and the United States may be structured vastly different, but the people running them are exactly the same.

Benjamin Franklin says take farmers, bankers and oil companies off the dole

“In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer. There is no country in the world where so many provisions are established for them; so many hospitals to receive them when they are sick or lame, founded and maintained by voluntary charities; so many alms-houses for the aged of both sexes, together with a solemn general law made by the rich to subject their estates to a heavy tax for the support of the poor. Under all these obligations, are our poor modest, humble, and thankful; and do they use their best endeavours to maintain themselves, and lighten our shoulders of this burthen? — On the contrary, I affirm that there is no country in the world in which the poor are more idle, dissolute, drunken, and insolent. The day you passed that act, you took away from before their eyes the greatest of all inducements to industry, frugality, and sobriety, by giving them a dependance on somewhat else than a careful accumulation during youth and health, for support in age or sickness. In short, you offered a premium for the encouragement of idleness, and you should not now wonder that it has had its effect in the increase of poverty.”


– Benjamin Franklin
(1706-1790) US Founding Father

“Migrant backlash surging in Mideast”

Cairo- “Parties backing crackdowns on immigration are ascending to new heights in Egypt, Syria, Iran and elsewhere in the Mideast by tapping into worries that the open-borders policies of the Mideast are diminishing local culture and costing jobs.”

The above article from the Sunday April 6 USA Today was changed by me to say Mideast instead of European Union. The countries were changed from the original Britain, France, Austria and Switzerland. The way I wrote it, that Europeans were flooding into Mideast countries, is of course silly, absurd and ridiculous.

But we accept it as our duty to allow the reverse. Mideast countries of course would never allow churches to be built in the land of Mosques. They would never allow European immigrants period. Let alone have them turnaround and demand the schools start teaching in English or French, and that Christianity must now be taught in the schools. But that is exactly what is happening in Europe (and parts of the U.S.).

On the Saturday previous on NPR, there was a report about the 5 million Muslim immigrants in France are now demanding dietary changes in the schools based on their religion. Dr. Peter Hammond among others have detailed what happens with Muslim populations as their percentage to the majority grows.

The once aw-shucks friendly immigrant gets pushed by their Mullahs to become increasing strident, then militant and eventually violent. It has been demonstrated in country after country what happens as the thresholds of 2-3 %, 5 %, 10 %, 20 %, 40 %, 60 %, 80 % and 100 %. What starts out as proselytizing grows by steps through demands, into hair-trigger rioting, chronic terror, and eventually ethnic cleansing and genocide as they pass 80 %, as is happening to Christians in the Mideast this very day.

For some reason, Europeans and Americans are incredibly slow learners. Despite telling us for fourteen hundred years that their mission is to “kill the infidel”, we refuse to listen.

This certainly can’t be true!

This enables it to sway the emotions of the masses.”

These are the ones I’m counting on …

1 Peter 4:8 Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.

John 10:28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me,

Luke 18:13 “But the tax collector stood at a distance and dared not even lift his eyes to heaven as he prayed. Instead, he beat his chest in sorrow, saying, ‘O God, be merciful to me, for I am a sinner.’ 14 I tell you, this sinner, not the Pharisee, returned home justified before God. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
