"Witches" Announce Their Opposition To Trump

Common Sense Commentary: The more the Liberal Socialists and Democrats scream, lie and attack Donald Trump, and his supporters, the more ridiculous and vile they become, and the more I am convinced that God must be using Trump as he used the Persian King Darius in delivering God's people, Israel from the bondage of Babylon. Trump's enemies are turning out to be the same people who are the enemies of Christ, His churches, and of Israel. I have never been a great fan of Trump, but when all of the long list of those who denigrate and persecute God's people are revealing themselves to be enemies of Trump also, they are convincing me that God must be using Trump for His own divine purposes. If Trump's lifestyle and rhetoric, in the primaries, turned me against him, the actions against him by Hollywood, Democrats,
Soros, Socialists, and the now Trump hating "witches" have turned me to his side of the fight. If I know anything about the battle of the ages between Lucifer and God, the evil I see trying to destroy Trump is on the Lucifer side of that battle ... certainly not God's side of it.

The latest group of heretics to take an open public position in opposition of Trump, his administration and his supporters is "The Witches of the world". Not that I put a lot of realistic credibility in people who call themselves "Witches", but at best they are a bunch of deluded, misguided lost souls. At the worst they are instruments of Satan and enemies of God. Whatever powers they may or may not have, as self professed witches, their intent is anti Christic and anti Christian. RB

This from the U.K. Daily Mail

Witches including Lana Del Rey will gather at midnight to cast a spell on President Trump and his supporters in hopes of banishing him from office


  • Witches will protest President Donald Trump on Friday at midnight by casting a spell under the crescent moon 
  • The purpose of the binding spell is to stop President Trump from doing harm and banish him from office 
  • Among the objects required to complete this spell are an unflattering photo of Trump, a tiny orange candle, a Tower tarot card and bowls of water and salt 
  • After lighting the small candle that has President Trump's name carved onto it, participants must begin the new chant that was written just for this spell...
  • 'I call upon you _____, To bind / Donald J. Trump So that he may fail utterly ... That he may do no harm/To any human soul,' says the chant
  • The lyrics also take aim at President Trump's supporters, with the lines: 'Bind them in chains / Bind their tongues / Bind their works / Bind their wickedness'
__________________________________
The above is a prayer to some un-named power. If these so called "Witches" are not praying to Jehovah God, exactly who are they praying to?


All Christians must decide which side they are on. There is only us and them. If you don't know which side you are on, you are one of them. RB


These "witches" and false prophets remind me of the false prophets of Baal who were in a competition with God's prophet Elijah. Elijah had challenged them to a "contest" to see if their god or his was the most powerful. They went up on Mount Carmel where was an altar of the Lord. There the 450 prophets of Baal heaped up wood on the altar and put a slaughtered calf upon it as an offering to their god, Baal. They prayed to Baal all day long, screamed at him and jumped on the altar begging Baal to consume the sacrifice... They grew angry and cut themselves up seriously, threw dust into the air and pleaded with Baal ... but not a word, spark or move came from him, so they tore the altar up. Then Elijah and his fellow believers rebuilt the altar, heaped wood upon it and placed their slaughtered calf on top of the wood. Elijah had them dig a trench around the altar and pour three barrels of water upon the entire thing. Then Elijah prayed to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to show the great crowd of people that He, Jehovah, was the true God. Fiery Lightening struck the altar and consumed the sacrifice, the wood, stones, water and dust of the altar. You would think the outcome of our recent election would convince the screamers that God could have turned it their way if He had so desired. After all, the whole world thought the witch would win. RB

See this screaming objection to prayer in Jesus name...

Would You Consider This Person A Friend ?

Or even a Christian ?

Suppose you had a friend who joined the Ku Klux Klan, an evil organization whose guiding mantra is their own superiority and a demeaning contempt and danger to all who disagreed with them. Or, suppose your friend joined the Nazi Party which embraces basically the same creed.... or the Communist Party, or a Muslim terrorist organization. You might reason with your friend, argue against his lack of judgment, point out the error of his new friends and pray for him. But, if he was intransigent and embraced the hate, error and evil anyway, you would have to cease to be his friend.... Right? "Can two walk together, except they be agreed?" Amos 3:3.  

So, imagine a Political Party which supports the killing of unborn babies, legalizing same sex marriages, legalizing illegal narcotics use, forcing all public restrooms to be open to both sexes including children, open borders to illegal entry, total government support for everyone who doesn't want to work, and defending criminals from law enforcement. You don't have to imagine it ... there is such a Political Party.... It is made up of eternal souls for whom Jesus died and they need to hear the gospel. And yes, God will save them if they repent and believe and I will gladly witness Christ to them ... I care for their eternal souls ... but they are not my friends. God loves their souls (John 3:16) but hates what they do.... "Thou (God) hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity...." Heb.1:9 

Jesus said..."And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." Matt.7:23.

God commands His people ...
"And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them." Eph.5:11.

"Love" Is An Often Misused And Abused Word

Common Sense Commentary: Human love, for a person, grows from "acquaintance" to "like" to "friend" to "affection" to affection multiplied by a hundred, a thousand or a million ....Human love, in the New Testament, is in various forms of  the Greek word "phileo". It is often fickle and unreliable and misapplied ... quite different from Godly Love. Phileo love can range from warm affection to white hot obsession. Many a person has given his or her life for love and many others have been murdered because of it. A mother's love for her child is usually one of the very strongest phileo loves. A child's phileo love for his parents usually lasts a lifetime. The love between a man and a woman can nurture, strengthen and secure or destroy one or both. People phileo love food, pleasure, position and power. These human types of love are various forms of "phileo" as in pedophile, philanthropist, and Philadelphia, meaning human love. The "love" of God expressed in the Greek words "agape" and "agapao" is as different from "phileo" as Giovanni loving spaghetti and "God so loving the world that he gave his only begotten Son...." to die on the cross for sinners.

In the terminology of the lost world, the word "love" is often just referring to sex. In that vulgar concept, "making love" never means being kind to someone or cherishing them or making them a cake or helping them across the street. The word "love" has thus been as corrupted as the word "gay".

Considering those contrasts, what do little children think "love" means? RB

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds , 'What does love mean?'

The answers they got were broader, deeper, and more profound than anyone could have ever imagined .....

'When my grandmother got arthritis , she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore.. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love.' 
Rebecca- age 8

'When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.'
Billy - age 4

'Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.'
Karl - age 5

'Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.'
Chrissy - age 6

'Love is what makes you smile when you're tired.'
Terri - age 4

'Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him , to make sure the taste is OK.'
Danny -  age 8

'Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and just listen.'
Bobby - age 7

'If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate.'
Nikka - age 6

'Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday.'
Noelle - age 7
__________________________
Godly love, in the New Testament, the Greek word "Agape", may be experienced by humans too through faith in Christ. RB

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Jn.3:16.

"By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." John 13:35.

"... the fruit of the Spirit is love ...." Gal.5:22. 

"He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love." 1 John 4:8.

Precious Memories, How They Linger ... Of My Forever Friends

More Precious As The Years Carry Me Farther From Them...

Mrs Blair and I arrived in Tallahassee, Fla., with our six children, on this date, Feb.20, 1963 to start Temple Baptist Church, now North Florida Baptist Church. I write today to all of you who were ever members of that body of believers.

Most of life's experiences are not worthy of memory, for most are of mundane, trivial, and temporal things. But some things are enduring, eternally precious, and will never be forgotten. Spiritual birth, through faith in Christ, is the crowning glory among eternal memories. Whereas, physical birth, without the second birth, has a very pointless duration and a very sad ending. At this time there are over seven billion flesh and blood people on earth experiencing the wood, hay and stubble of life in addition to the pains, difficulties and temporal pleasures which come their way. But of those billions of living individuals, though many profess Christianity, there are probably many fewer who are actually born again believers in Jesus Christ. Oh yes, most of the world's people have some sort of religion, for every human being has a born in, deep inclination toward believing there has to be a God somewhere out there. Even as the intellectual Athenians built an altar "To The Unknown God".

Besides the usual memories of childhood, growing up and those thousands of unimportant, common memories which all of us have, I have many others which are precious fuel for the low burning flame of old age.... Memories of the mountain top years of my life ... All of which, in one way or another, have to do with God's service, His calling and ministry ... for me, and those precious people I served with and loved over those glorious years.

Sometimes, in the darkest hours of night, the faces and voices of old friends drift through my memory ... and carry me back to those precious times, at the top of the world where you and I were blessed to be a part of things eternal.... together. That holy place where our great God and Father came down and drew us up into His presence... endures still. It was not our church or our message He chose to bless. It was His own ... and we were just there ... hoping to be be used by Him. I think we all sincerely desired His will for our lives, and struggled to be obedient and faithful ... as best we could. The many successes we saw unfold through those years, which accompanied our feeble efforts, were not my successes, or yours, but His. Yet, more yours than mine ... your faithfulness, sacrifices and prayers ... my voice ... but God's word, God's holiness, God's will and God's glory. I have always known it was our Lord, not I, who founded and built that church.The credit and glory are all His. It was that knowledge which signed all of my letters, over my signature with  Psm.115:1 "Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake." 

Now, 54 years since the birth of our church ... God's church, began in February/March, 1963, an old man's midnight memories are a treasure and a comfort which overshadow any regrets or failures. In the darkest hours of night, I see your faces ... and  "I thank my God upon every remembrance of you...." Phil.1:3.  You are, and always will be... my Forever Friends. I love you all with a love only Christ can give. Psm.115:1, Pastor Blair


Precious mem'ries, unseen angels
Sent from somewhere to my soul
How they linger, ever near me
As the sacred past unfolds.

Precious mem'ries, how they linger

How they ever flood my soul
In the stillness of the midnight
Precious, sacred scenes unfold.

As I travel on life's pathway

I know not what the years may hold
And as I ponder, hope grows fonder
Precious mem'ries flood my soul

Precious mem'ries how they linger

How they ever flood my soul
In the stillness of the midnight
Precious, sacred scenes unfold.

Precious Memories written by Ed Reeves.

What ever happened to the great old hymns,
where did they go...or is it us who departed
from them? RB

A Call To Boycott Everything Jewish

That would include Jesus, born of  Jewish mother.

Common Sense Commentary: This boycott of everything Jewish is just another example of the inexplicable depravity of hating Jews and Christians. It is not just Muslims who hate us but their hatred has spread into American schools, colleges and among many Democrat Politicians and a significant number of the party's supporters. Christian, Biblical doctrine forbids hating Jews, Muslims or anyone else .... except, maybe the Devil. You may disagree and even dislike someone, and rebuke them, but to "hate" people is sin. "For God so loved the world....".... But he drove the moneychangers out of the Temple with a whip.

"For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved." John 3:20.

"Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. ' Matt.24:9

"Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you." 1 John 3:13.

A short time ago, Iran's Supreme Leader Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei urged the Muslim World to boycott anything and everything that originates with the Jewish people.

In response, Meyer M. Treinkman, a pharmacist, out of the kindness of his heart, offered to assist them in their boycott as follows:

"Any Muslim who has Syphilis must not be cured by Salvarsan discovered by a Jew, Dr. Ehrlich. He should not even try to find out whether he has Syphilis, because the Wasserman Test is the discovery of a Jew. If a Muslim suspects that he has Gonorrhea, he must not seek diagnosis, because he will be using the method of a Jew named Neissner.

"A Muslim who has heart disease must not use Digitalis, a discovery by a Jew, Ludwig Traube.

Should he suffer with a toothache, he must not use Novocaine, a discovery of the Jews, Widal and Weil.

If a Muslim has Diabetes, he must not use Insulin, the result of research by Minkowsky, a Jew. If one has a headache, he must shun Pyramidon and Antypyrin, due to the Jews, Spiro and Ellege.

Muslims with convulsions must put up with them because it was a Jew, Oscar Leibreich, who proposed the use of Chloral Hydrate.

Arabs must do likewise with their psychic ailments because Freud, father of psychoanalysis, was a Jew.

Should a Muslim child get Diphtheria, he must refrain from the Schick" reaction which was invented by the Jew, Bella Schick.

"Muslims should be ready to die in great numbers and must not permit treatment of ear and brain damage, work of Jewish Nobel Prize winner, Robert Baram.

They should continue to die or remain crippled by Infantile Paralysis because the discoverer of the anti-polio vaccine is a Jew, Jonas Salk.

"Muslims must refuse to use Streptomycin and continue to die of Tuberculosis because a Jew, Zalman Waxman, invented the wonder drug against this killing disease.

Muslim doctors must discard all discoveries and improvements by dermatologist Judas Sehn Benedict, or the lung specialist, Frawnkel, and of many other world renowned Jewish scientists and medical experts.

"In short, good and loyal Muslims properly and fittingly should remain afflicted with Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Heart Disease, Headaches, Typhus, Diabetes, Mental Disorders, Polio Convulsions and Tuberculosis and be proud to obey the Islamic boycott."

Oh, and by the way, don't call for a doctor on your cell phone because the cell phone was invented in Israel by a Jewish engineer.

Meanwhile I ask, what medical contributions to the world have the Muslims made?"

The Global Islamic population is approximately 1,200,000,000; that is ONE BILLION TWO HUNDRED MILLION or 20% of the world's population.

They have received the following Nobel Prizes:

The Jews are NOT promoting brainwashing children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non-Muslims.

The Jews don't hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, or blow themselves up in German restaurants.

There is NOT one single Jew who has destroyed a church.

There is NOT a single Jew who protests by killing people. The Jews don't traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels.

Perhaps the world's Muslims should consider investing more in standard education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems.

Muslims must ask 'what can they do for humankind' before they demand that humankind respects them.

Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the Palestinians and Arab neighbors, even if you believe there is more culpability on Israel 's part, the following two sentences really say it all:

'If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel."

Benjamin Netanyahu: General Eisenhower warned us. It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.

He did this because he said in words to this effect: 'Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened'

Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it 'offends' the Muslim population which claims it never occurred.

It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it.

It is now more than 65 years after the Second World War in Europe ended.

Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center 'NEVER HAPPENED' because it offends some Muslim in the United States?

Charity Is Commendable, Socialism Is Robbery

One is voluntary, the other is confiscation

Common Sense Commentary: Socialism neutralizes the efficiency of Free Enterprise, free ideas, motivation to work, productive incentive and personal responsibility. As Satan has a religion, evolution, and a remedy for pregnancy, abortion, he also has a political system, socialism administered by a tyrant. RB

Quotes on Socialism....

Judas was a Socialist ... Jesus was not
"Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair....Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him, Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein. Then said Jesus, Let her alone...." John 12:3-7
Ronald Reagan

“Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don't need it and hell where they already have it.”

Winston Churchill 
"Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance and the gospel of envy."
.
Margaret Thatcher: 
"The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money."

Here is what some of our Founding Fathers and signers of the Constitution said about socialism.

“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it." Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to Joseph Milligan, April 6, 1816

“A wise and frugal government… shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.” — Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1801

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” — Thomas Jefferson

“Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare, but only those specifically enumerated.” — Thomas Jefferson


“The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. If ‘Thou shalt not covet’ and ‘Thou shalt not steal’ were not commandments of Heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society before it can be civilized or made free.” — John Adams, A Defense of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America, 1787 

“With respect to the two words ‘general welfare,’ I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.” — James Madison in a letter to James Robertson 

In 1794, when Congress appropriated $15,000 for relief of French refugees who fled from insurrection in San Domingo to Baltimore and Philadelphia, James Madison stood on the floor of the House to object saying:  “I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.” — James Madison, 4 Annals of Congress 179, 1794 

“[T]he government of the United States is a definite government, confined to specified objects. It is not like the state governments, whose powers are more general. Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.” — James Madison 

“Wherever the real power in a Government lies, there is the danger of oppression.” — James Madison 

“If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the general welfare, the government is no longer a limited one possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one subject to particular exceptions.” James Madison, “Letter to Edmund Pendleton,” — James Madison, January 21, 1792, in The Papers of James Madison, vol. 14, Robert A Rutland et. al., ed (Charlottesvile: University Press of Virginia, 1984). 

“An elective despotism was not the government we fought for; but one in which the powers of government should be so divided and balanced among the several bodies of magistracy as that no one could transcend their legal limits without being effectually checked and restrained by the others.” — James Madison, Federalist No. 58, February 20, 1788 

“There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.” — James Madison, speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 16, 1788 

“When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.” — Benjamin Franklin 

“I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it.” — Benjamin Franklin 

“They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty or safety.” — Benjamin Franklin 

“The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.” — Benjamin Franklin 

And this from Veritas, A Conservative Viewpoint
These quotes and others make it clear that those who promote "redistribution of wealth" as a task for the government run against the very basic principles underlying the United States of America. This is no detail. 

What is really surprising is that many of the champions of socialism live in prosperity because of capitalism and because of the fruits of other people's work and the strength of the ideals of the Founding Fathers and their counterparts in other lucky places. Nevertheless, they are not repelled by using their own prosperity as an argument against freedom and capitalism. 

But these left-wing people's wealth is not a manifestation of socialism. Quite on the contrary: it is a manifestation of the creative power of capitalism combined with their character of parasites. To get a more realistic picture for what kind of a societal arrangement they stand for, you should look into North Korea or Cuba, countries that were transformed according to the ideas of their own soulmates.".....Communists 

Are the principles of America guaranteed to exist forever, even if the people and the circumstances are against them? Let me end up with two not quite optimistic quotes: 

“Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There was never a democracy that did not commit suicide.”  John Adams signer of the Constitution and a founding father.

“But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.”  John Adams
