A Fishy Fable???

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Fake News???, Trend Update with tags , , , on March 13, 2019 by paulthepoke

Jonah 1:17 And the LORD appointed a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.

Jonah 2:10 And the LORD spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah out upon the dry land.

So you think Jonah is a little fairy tale or story???

Matthew 12:40 For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Church in the 21st Century… Beer Please!

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Culture, Fake News???, Gospel, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on March 5, 2019 by paulthepoke

March 2019: Welcome to Castle Church Brewing Community in Orlando, Florida.

Castle Church Brewing Community

https://www.castlechurchbrewing.com

We are a community that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace.  This faith comes through the good news of Jesus Christ and gives us the freedom and the courage to wonder, discover and boldly participate in what God is up to in the world.  We welcome you to participate in this community of faith –regardless of your age, race, gender, life experience, complexities and questions. You have a unique story that can only add to the richness of the larger story that makes up Castle Church. There is a place for you here!

The point of this post is not to bash and shame this local church. It is not all bad. It is not all right by Christ either.

I am not opposed to drinking. I have been known to drink an adult beverage or two. Can a person come to know the saving power of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ over an alcoholic beverage? Sure they can.

John 2:6 Now there were six stone water jars there for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons.

For all the teetotalers out there, Jesus is throwing one hell of a party. Jesus subjected a wedding party to 120-180 gallons of wine. And He kept the good stuff (120-180 gallons) for the end of the party after the people have drunk freely. See John 2 for the complete story.

Colossians 3:9-11 Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its Creator. Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all.

Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

The church claims to be a “Reconciling in Christ” congregation. By their definition… Castle Church openly and unambiguously affirms persons and couples of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions.

It is one thing to welcome people from all social, ethnic, sexual orientation, gender identification, and diverse backgrounds. It is another to condone sinful behavior. The culture has it wrong when they equate sexual behavior (regardless of the age, orientation, and context) apart from Biblical marriage as “love”.

Matthew 19:4-5 He (Jesus) answered, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?…

God loves the sinner; but He does not condone or love the sinful behavior. Do not kid yourself. We are called to change our behavior as a new creation in Jesus Christ. He died and paid the fine for all deviant sin. Yes, any sin is deviant regardless of how small we humans view it. His resurrection demonstrates He has power over sin and death. Christ’s efforts for sin are not to be twisted or mocked.

Would it be a good idea to bring a non believer or a brother or sister in Christ who struggles with alcohol or chemical addiction to this local body? One can study the Bible over a beer. Will anyone be accountable to another if somebody is drinking too much? They have “connect groups”. They have a great selection of draughts. How much is too much? And who decides? Look forward to deep theological discussions over a beer(s).

Is this group building up the body of Christ? One can participate in yoga and share a beer later. They have volunteer groups participating in the community. Wear trendy “swag” while representing the church. A calendar of events is on display for all to join.

Fake News??? Transgender Rights, Feminists, and Lesbians…

Posted in Culture, Fake News???, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 29, 2019 by paulthepoke

Genesis 1:27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Matthew 19:4-5 He (Jesus) answered, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?…

This is where we are relative to God’s word…

The following commentary is from the setting that is The Heritage Foundation. Yes, this occurred at a home of conservative political thought. The Heritage Foundation is one of the nation’s most influential institutions for conservative thinking. Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Rush Limbaugh… you get the idea.

Pay close attention. The content required multiple re readings. For those not versed in these issues, this can be a little confusing…

Kara Dansky was invited by The Heritage Foundation to speak on a panel. Ms. Dansky is a self proclaimed feminist lawyer and spokeswoman for Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF). She is not a lesbian.

Ms. Dansky’s concern… Transgender Activism is anti woman and anti lesbian. She is calling on men to stand up to Transgender Activism.

Other members of the panel included Hasci Horvath. Hasci, originally a man, identified as a woman and had surgery. Horvath had an interesting observation.

“And it’s really shocking how many men on the internet are defending the whole trans thing. Straight men are all about the trans, and you have to wonder what the heck is going on.” -Hasci Horvath

Another panel member was Julia Beck. Julia is a lesbian and former member of the Baltimore mayor’s LGBTQ Commission. Ms. Beck encountered the semantic police in a very harsh way. She was booted from the Baltimore LGBTQ Commission. Her violation, inappropriate use of pronouns…

“I got kicked off of the Baltimore mayor’s LGBTQ commission, as the only lesbian, simply for stating biological facts. I was found guilty of ‘violence.’ My crime? Using male pronouns to talk about a convicted male rapist who identifies as transgender and prefers female pronouns.”

“The man who led my inquisition also identifies as ‘transgender.’ He is the president of the Baltimore Transgender Alliance and claims to be a lesbian.” -Julia Beck

The following is from PJMedia.com assistant editor Tyler O’Neil. There are multiple video clips from Mr. O’Neil at his Twitter feed regarding this conference. Below is a sample.

Click on the video clip for comments.

“The meeting made one thing crystal clear: Inclusivity means all voices are welcome, except women’s, except lesbians’. Everything is about the T now, entirely eclipsing the L, G, and B. The T is diametrically opposed to the first three letters in the acronym, and especially to the L.” -Julia Beck

This article is an interesting read. See the link below.

Luke 11:17 But He (Jesus), knowing their thoughts, said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and a divided household falls.

Come Lord Jesus…

Day Light to Dark in Russia, July 2018

Posted in Fake News???, Prophecy, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars..., Trend Update with tags , , , on July 27, 2018 by paulthepoke

Amos 8:9 “And on that day,” declares the Lord GOD, “I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth in broad daylight.”

July 25, 2018: And the lights went out in Russia… in the middle of the day. And this is Newsweek reporting! The sky went dark as night from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the middle of the day. The event took place in Siberian Russia in the Yakutia region.

“When the sun fell out of sight people started phoning the local administration. Many, especially older people, got spooked. It did not come immediately but gradually. The sun was not visible from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the day. We went out on the street especially for it, which many can confirm. Now we don’t even know what to think. We do not have any specialists and the rumors keep multiplying.” Konstantin Starostin, head of Nizhne-Bytantaysk.

“It was around 11 in the morning and the house was pitch dark. Nothing was visible without electricity. Everyone was walking around with torches on. There was no wind. Being out in the street was impossible.”

“How can something cover the sun so that it is not visible? Only a lunar (eclipse) is likely to and if that is the case that this issue is not for us. We do not observe for solar eclipses,” Yuri Degterenko, Deputy Head of the Weather Board’s Environmental Monitoring Group.

“If it was smog from fires, people would know. There would be smoke and a burning smell. Our meteorological stations did not trace such a thing.”

“It was overcast in general so maybe some dark cloud blocked the sun but it could be something that was not a cloud. There was no rain after that,” Yevgeny Potapov, Head of Verkhoyansk.

Russia’s weather agency did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the matter.

Amos 8:9 “And on that day,” declares the Lord GOD, “I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth in broad daylight.”

Is this the fulfillment of Amos 8? I don’t think so. The context of the verse is the Lord pronouncing judgment on Israel. I take it this event will ultimately be fulfilled in Israel during a period of judgment.

But don’t kid yourself… This event shows the scenario is possible. It happened just like the verse declared.

Matthew 24:5 For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray.

Matthew 24:24 For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.

 

Dateline: South Carolina, April 2018

Christ Incarnate Arrested in High Speed Chase

“Crump had earlier mentioned that since he was the reincarnated Jesus Christ that he had no earthly possessions and did not claim the coin collection. Because a proper owner of the coin collection could not be identified, it was entered into evidence as found property along with the other property from the vehicle.”

Joseph Kevin Crump was charged with reckless driving, failure to stop for blue light, leaving the scene of an accident, improper lane change and hit and run.

Exodus 30:13-16 This is what everyone who is numbered shall give: half a shekel according to the shekel of the sanctuary (the shekel is twenty gerahs), half a shekel as a contribution to the Lord. Everyone who is numbered, from twenty years old and over, shall give the contribution to the Lord. The rich shall not pay more and the poor shall not pay less than the half shekel, when you give the contribution to the Lord to make atonement for yourselves. You shall take the atonement money from the sons of Israel and shall give it for the service of the tent of meeting, that it may be a memorial for the sons of Israel before the Lord, to make atonement for yourselves.”

The Sanhedrin of Israel is back in the news. The Sanhedrin reconvened in 2005 after a 1,600-year absence. They oversee legal matters and future construction of the pending third temple.

The Sanhedrin of Israel is back in the news. The Sanhedrin reconvened in 2005 after a 1,600-year absence. They oversee legal matters and future construction of the pending third temple.

Click on video link for additional analysis.

The Sanhedrin is going to mint a coin with the likeness of United States President Donald Trump and King Cyrus on one side of the coin. The coin is the half shekel Temple tax. The tax is per the law. If you are 20 years old or older, you owe one half shekel to God. It does not matter how much money you have. There is no sliding tax scale with God.

A coin with the likeness of Donald Trump will be presented for the atonement of the son of Israel. Notice, there are two gentile leaders on the coin dedicated to the future Jewish Temple. WHAT???

http://en.hamikdash.org.il/about/we-need-your-support/the-temple-coin/

 

Rabbi Hillel Weiss, Chairman of the Mikdash & Tsion Association, Sanhedrin Spokesman has made some fascinating comments.

“Cyrus and Balfour, non-Jews who played an enormously important role in Jewish history fell short and their political success suffered as a result. Trump’s political agenda can only succeed if it is focused on building the Third Temple on the place that God chose: the Temple Mount. He must not advance any two-state solution or this will lead to his downfall,” warned Rabbi Weiss.

“President Trump cannot allow the Arabs to believe that half of Jerusalem, let alone the Temple Mount, will fall to them. This coin should serve as a sign of our gratitude as well as a reminder of what still needs to be done. Anyone who owns this coin is showing that he agrees with both of these aspects: the gratitude for what Trump has done and the cautionary reminder that Jerusalem is the place of the Jewish Temple.”

“The mitzvah (Mosaic Law) is for Jewish men of specific ages to sanctify the coin to the Temple. Until the Temple is built, it is not possible to sanctify anything to the Temple. This coin is intended to help in preparations for the Temple and anyone can take part in that at any time.”

If necessary, moneys raised from the sale of the coin can be used for construction of the Temple.
