Thinking again, sorry but…….

It’s New Years eve. Most of the Holiday Hoopla is over. That’s good news.

Holidays are supposed to be a time of family, joy, togetherness, which in some ways it is. Then there is the hurriedness, the shopping, which gift for whomever, wrapping, stress, being careful not to offend the easily offended, so we smile a lot. Tolerate the noise and confusion, which at a much younger age was part of the fun. These days, the wiser, elder days as they are called, not so much.`

Writing out cards (even to the people we see every day and will see at the festivities, Do you understand why we do that?) We lug around car loads of gifts, we put up all matter of decorations, inside, outside, just to take them down again. Grocery shopping,( not to be confused with the gift shopping), preparing, cleaning, cooking, serving, eating, wrapping, wasting, singing, sharing, snapping pictures. And then it’s done. Meanwhile……

This is the thinking part….for me, a Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother I wish for things not so mundane, not just the traditional or obligatory matters incorporated into these Holidays. I thought of the drinking, the eagerness of it. I thought of Jesus at the wedding, making wine out of water. No one it seems gave a thought about it, where it came from and why is never mentioned. The wedding guests were there by invitation. Probably most of the village, neighborhood or town was invited, back in the day.

The Drinking of anything takes no preparation, anyone can do it, if a liquid is available. We are born ready willing and able to suck it right down. At any time in almost any place. God said every thirsty one is welcome. Only one requirement is needed, we must be thirsty. Even if the thirst is of greed, ambition, pleasure, knowledge, sinner tired or the weary, are invited to come to drink. What a gift.! Irrespective of persons God calls us to drink of Him, with Him. We invite friends, family, colleagues to our Holiday celebrations, . He also invites us, we need an invitation to attend, to drink of Him. His call, His invitation is the act of truly being thirsty.

I looked around at my family this year and wondered if any there were thirsty? Really thirsty for more than what was made available by our host. I know a few had drank of Him, truly, but I care about those younger not yet thirsty. How do we get thirsty? We have a built-in need for water, we are actually made up of a lot of water. Pretty clever of our creator, right? However, that is one of the first places our evil nemesis distorted.

Advertisements for an abundance of thirst quenchers invade our spaces daily. Temporary thirst quenchers with no effect on the soul. Our souls as I look around and listen are very dehydrated, sick even. Where is the teaching, the advertising for the souls thirst quencher? It is to be taught us by our parents, early on, modeled for us every day, what this thirst inside us feels like, the thirstiness that can not be quenched except by Jesus, Our Lord God. The culture of today runs from it, and they seek refreshing in all the wrong places. With beverages that increase

the dehydration. Our culture, even at the Holidays have seriously dehydrated, nauseous, souls. Sadly those who need it are of the mind set that they are not welcome. Their china, tea cups are cracked or broken, ashamed of the poverty in their souls. Who taught that? A depraved dehydrated lost culture is who.

There are no requirements, no BYOB, just thirst. Are you thirsty? You need no golden cup, no fine china, to convey the water to the thirsty, The mouth of poverty is welcome to stoop down and drink of the life giving stream.Blistered, dried cracked, leprous and filthy lips may touch the stream of divine love and not pollute the stream, but rather be healed, purified by it.

Poverty need not keep us from Him

Our Redeemer lives, He loves us, and he calls out to us saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. ” Our sinfulness, our dehydrated souls are not barriers to the invitation to believe in Jesus. Come be purified. Quench the deep thirst of body and soul.

‘They know they’ve been caught’: Limbaugh nails Dems on Trump spying | WND

Truth2Freedom's Blog

Democratic senators on Wednesday made sure the nation knows that “there was political bias, there was personal hatred bias” in the FBI’s abuse of the FISA system to investigate the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential race.

How?

They’re “making it obvious here by harping on it.”

Talk-radio host was commenting on Wednesday’s hearing in the Senate featuring Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

His investigation found a massive list of failures on the part of the Obama administration regarding its investigation into the Trump campaign in 2016. He also said he found no evidence of political bias, but then without subpoena power he could only investigate what people voluntarily told him.

Rush Limbaugh explained the realities of the situation.

“So [Sen.] Lindsey Graham was great in his opening statement exposing all of this. Then it got to questioning of Horowitz. ‘I think, well, there’s no bias, no documentary evidence, poor Carter…

The New Gnostics in Today’s Church — Lighthouse Trails Inc

(Author of the new release, War Against the Saints)

I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. (1 John 2:21)

The church is undergoing perhaps her final assault from within, as she has been beset with a new wave of Gnostics who have entered in.

What is Gnosticism? One definition of Gnosticism states:

Gnosticism was built on Greek philosophy that taught matter was evil and the Spirit was good. . . . So-called “Christian Gnostics” said since matter was evil, God could not really incarnate in a human body; He only appeared in human form and only appeared to suffer, but basically, it was an illusion. . . .

Prior to Christianity, the Gnostics taught that man is composed of body, soul, and spirit. The body and the…

For those in Rio Linda, Patriot David explained in a comment box to his internet friends:

Hillary allegedly planned and motivated since July 2016, all the alleged corruption of this Coup to frame the President of criminal acts that they actually did. Hillary emails was the alleged communicator to the Clinton Foundation, a large subsidiary of the Globalist who were partnered for many years to bring the United States to a 3rd world status for “more” power/money. IMO; everyone involved in the Coup are all traitors to the Constitution and the American People and the punishment should be Extremely Harsh.

The Return of the Conqueror

And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. (19:11–13)

As it did in 4:1, heaven opened before John’s wondering eyes. But unlike 4:1, heaven opens this time not to let John in, but to let Jesus out. The time has come at last for the full, glorious revelation of the sovereign Lord. This is the time to which all of Revelation (as well as all of redemptive history) has been pointing, the time of which Jesus Himself spoke…

What The “Expert” Panel Should Have Told You About Impeachment… But Didn’t | ZeroHedge News

Truth2Freedom's Blog

Authored by Rob Natelson via The Epoch Times,

This short essay does what the House Judiciary Committee’s panel of “expert witnesses” did not successfully do.

First, it explains the meaning of the Constitution’s “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” standard. Next, it discusses how that standard applies to President Donald Trump’s interactions with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Finally, it details the kind of evidence the House Judiciary Committee should gather to determine whether the president committed an impeachable offense.

Many phrases in the Constitution—such as “necessary and proper,” “Privileges and Immunities,” and “Convention for proposing Amendments”—carry specialized 18th century meanings not obvious to the modern reader. Recall that most of the leading Founders were lawyers and the Constitution is a legal document. Some of these phrases derive from 18th century law.

Therefore, to understand them you have to consult 18th century legal materials in addition to better-known sources such as the…
