Merry Christmas

Over two thousand years ago in the lonely town of Bethlehem, a child was born.  He grew to be a man.  It was documented that over his life, he fulfilled over three hundred prophecies.  He died, was buried and rose again on the third day.  He was seen by over five hundred witnesses and then ascended into heaven.  On this Christmas eve, we would want to wish each and every reader of this blog a Merry Christmas.  And remind you that while on his first trip he fulfilled prophecy to the letter at the exact right time in the exact right way.  He is coming again and will fulfill prophecy again.  Not any prophecy written by Mayan Indians, or Buddhist or Muslims.   But scripture, completed over nineteen hundred years ago.  This same Jesus who ascended into heaven will return in like fashion.  May he always and forever remain the reason for the season.  May he fill your heart with his presence.  And may the new year bring you all the joy the Spirit can bring.

Offending the Little Ones

Yesterday there was a shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.  Twenty-eight are dead.  Twenty are children.  I was looking up the verse today about harming the little ones and I found it rather fascinating.    The verse in Matthew 18:6 says.  "If any one should offend one of the little ones, it is better that a millstone be thrown around his neck and he be cast into the sea."   The word offend in the Greek is the word that we get scandalize from.  The idea is to entrap, trip up or entice to sin, apostasy or displeasure.  The Middle English word for offend means, make to.  So who is more at fault in this crime?  Is it the person pulling the trigger or is it the education system that has scandalized our little ones?

When doing a word search for millstone, I looked at the four usages in the New Testament.  There is three in the gospels all having to do with this conversation that Jesus was having about the children with his disciples.  Matthew 18:6, Mark 9:42, Luke 17:2.

The next usage is in Revelation 18:21-22.  It refers to Babylon.  "And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea saying, Thus with violence shall the great city Babylon be thrown down and shall be no more at all.  And the voice of the harpers, and musicians, and of pipers and trumpeters shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;"

Is this an indictment against Babylon?  Has Babylon scandalized the little ones?  I ask you.  If America is Babylon then we are in trouble?  If Rome is Babylon, then they are in trouble?  Be careful how you are teaching the little ones.  Proverbs 22:6 says "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it".

Connecticut. school shooting

As of this time, I have news that 26 are dead 18 are students in an elementary school in Connecticut.   Of course we are going to give our condolences to the families of these children and teachers.

The Bible says in 1 Timothy that the last days  will be perilous times.  It doesn't matter what you do it will be dangerous.  I have reffed basketball in Columbine.  I know what peril is.  Will it get worse.  It has been trending that way.  Is there something behind hind it?   We can always ask.

First of all they say that the shooter is a father and is among the dead.  How convenient.  Nothing like a dead suspect to suspend the investigation.  It was used with Kennedy. was declared a lone gunman and Ruby killed him in broad daylight.  There is no way of having a trial if the the person who is declared to be the perpetrator is dead.   So at least with Kennedy, there has been private investigations.

Why children?  First it gets every ones attention.  Second, it gets the emotions involved.  It worked with Oklahoma City.   Third Satan has always wanted a virgin sacrificed.   The more innocent the better.  Look at the fires of Molach.  Where children were burned to death on purpose. 

The call is going to be to ban guns.  Don't fall for it.  The ban should be for mind control medicines and black ops programs in the government.   We put kids on prozack and then they play violent video games.  At some level they snap and then go shooting.  There are black ops programs in the government to promote mind control activities.  Usually you find that more than one shooter was involved and they kill one so that the investigation is off.  Other situations such as the Fort Bliss shooting was a Muslim extremist, but I don't think that this is it. 

Bob Costas last week called for a gun ban.  We don't need that.  That is going to start a civil war.  This country needs a lot of prayer.  But Satan is doing his best right now to create fear.  We have Dec 21 coming up and this can make it worse.  People are already suicidal over that.  So let's get our heads together and keep things straight.  Israel has M16 in lockers in all classrooms.  No school shootings.   

Stay tuned,   There will be more to come.
