What Does The Lord Require Of You?

I was out all day yesterday so I wasn't online to release comments on my previous post until around 8:30 p.m. (PT). I didn't even know that Rick Santorum suspended his campaign until I got home and heard a news report about it. I am wondering why he did that? Was it because of his ill daughter Bella? Was it because the polls may have shown him losing to Romney in his home state? Was he or a family member threatened? All of the above? Will we ever know the truth?

I read my blogging friend Steve's recent blog post and the headline links in the email copy I receive. I need to check out all of those links. It's quite depressing to realize that our once free country is no longer a land of liberty, freedom , and justice for all. Obama changed all of that in his nightmarish Chicago thuggery methods and I believe that they would stop at NOTHING to stay in office indefinitely.

I met with two friends (both strong Christians) who can't even look at or listen to Obama anymore. Neither one of them read my blog regularly, so they probably don't even know about half of criminality that is going on and the evil that is being unleashed upon America through Obamafraud's handlers.

I see people on Face book paying absolutely NO ATTENTION to the destruction of our nation that is going on right before our very eyes! They are involved in a kind of tunnel vision - too into their stupid Face book games, or their dogs, or hobbies - to even care about the cesspool our nation is swirling into. It really grieves me so much - so I know how friends like Steve, who keeps up with the latest Obamafraud machinations intent on destroying our Republic, feel.

I really think that the only way to get Obama out of the White House is for him to be arrested, charged with treason against America, and led away in handcuffs to prison. It will take a very brave officer of the law, who would know that he/she will probably stare death in the face, to accomplish such a feat.

I don't know whether we are in the end times, or whether this period of history is just the "birth pangs" heading towards Christ's return for His own. Time will tell.

I re-joined BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) yesterday. [MUCH THANKS to my friend Mary Ann for inviting me!] It was so good to be back studying the Bible with 300 other Christian women. There are just five more weeks in the study of  Acts.  This week we are in the book of James.  What is studied, learned, lectured about and done in our homework sessions is calming to the soul and uplifting to the spirit when so much turmoil, fear, war, economic uncertainty, and all the rest of the crises happening in our nation surround us. I realized yesterday that I needed to get back to an inductive type of Bible study that will challenge me and help me to continue to praise, worship, learn about, and apply God's Word in my life.

Well, I want to give a special God bless to Steve today! Keep alerting the blogosphere with your excellent posts and links so that people will finally be awakened to what is actually going on in our nation and the world.

Too many live with blinders on.

Too many ignore God's Word and Jesus Christ's invitation to follow Him.

 Too many will die without being saved by mercy and grace through the cross of Christ!

 All that we can do is share the truth of the evil, sin and death in this world while continuing to share the message of the Gospel of Christ; praying for those who don't yet know Jesus as their personal Savior to finally learn the TRUTH and turn to Him.

What does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God (Micah 6:8)

<><><> John 3:3 - "Believe me," returned Jesus, "a man cannot even see the kingdom of God without being born again."<><>

3:5-8 - "I assure you," said Jesus, "that unless a man is born from water and from spirit he cannot enter the kingdom of God. Flesh gives birth to flesh and spirit gives birth to spirit: you must not be surprised that I told you that all of you must be born again. The wind blows where it likes, you can hear the sound of it but you have no idea where it comes from and where it goes. Nor can you tell how a man is born by the wind of the Spirit."
Jhn 3:16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Jhn 10:30   "I and [my] Father are one."
Jhn 8:32  "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

Jhn 15:26  "But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.

Mat 28:19  "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

Mat 28:20  "teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, [even] to the end of the age." Amen.

Hat tips to all links.

Good afternoon Christine! You are so right that very few people pay any attention to what destruction Obama and company are doing to this nation. I check out some liberal blogs and I'm stunned by the ignorance there. One in particular that I wrote about early this morning claimed the government wastes less than $1 million a year out of the massive spending. When I read things like that I realize more and more these people are like ... well "the simple believeth every word ..." Those people will believe Eric Holder when he says the video proving voter fraud is fake.
I relly hate being so negative in the midst of all this, but I don't like kidding myself.
I mean, what happened to the Breitbart tapes that we going to devastate the Obama regime? I was so frustated when the little twerp Ben Shapiro said he wouldn't touch Obama's forgeries ...
Anyway, I know for a surety I can come here to Christine's blog and get a word of encouragement when I'm feeling overwhelmed.
Thank you so much for the kindest words that's been said about me for ... oh, a couple decades! :)
You're the best and I'm honored to be your friend.

Over at Citizen Wells blog, another case for proof of U.S. citizenship in order for Obummer to be on the ballot was dismissed by a N.J. judge. I think that Zero is Malcolm X's son - and the "racism" mantra, along with some kind of lame "protection of Obummer's identity" is being used to keep this a secret from the public while allowing the courts to ignore the issue.

I'm so glad that you feel encouraged coming here Steve! I certainly felt encouraged when I went back to Bible Study Fellowship.

No matter what happens on this earth, we know Who wins in the end and where we will be as believers - with Jesus Christ. There is nothing that could ever compare with that!

I too was surprised to learn that Santorum had dropped out so quickly. I thought he'd hold out at least until the PA contest.
My take: he really IS concerned about his daughter. After all, she was born with her condition, and in '09 and '10, his family spent over $100,000 on her medical expenses. That's got to hurt.
He also suddenly remembered that if Pennsylvanians really wanted him, he'd still be a Senator. Being rejected twice by his fellow Keystoners might have been too much for him; he lost by 17 points last time.
Why would Obama threaten someone who had no real chance of winning the nomination? Santorum staying in longer would merely fracture the GOP even more! By leaving now, he has solid credibility with the GOP simply by hanging on so long, and he's not an old man; there's always '16, or even '20, to look forward to.

Over the years, I've heard national candidates (mostly conservative 'Pubs) claim that God told them to run. They never say that God told them that they'd win, but they say they were told to run. If the reason was for them to learn a lesson, it works; ask Rick Perry and Herman Cain. Ask Santorum, now.

I know you're upset over current events,'ve often told me, “God is in control”. Do you believe that? Then things are happening exactly the way God wants them to. “Let not your heart be troubled” and all that.

Obama is capable of anything. With his awful past, terrible present, and the dismal future America would face if he is re-elected, there is nothing that he wouldn't do to remain in the position of "king" that he narcissistically imagines himself to be right now.

Did you know that one of his lawyers now admits that the online COLB is a forgery? But they will even try and spin that. Disgusting!!!
