Passing judgement on a person’s sin, makes you an equal sinner. God didn’t make a list of sins & say one was worse than the other. He did however say that the greatest thing we can do is love. Let’s all love more…

James 4:12 There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and to destroy; but who are you who judge your neighbor?

James 2:10 For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become guilty of all of it.

Matthew 22:37-40 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.” -Jesus

Have a loving week my friends!!!

Have A Nice Rest… Christine McDonald

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Christine "Clarity" McDonald with tags , , , , on July 11, 2020 by paulthepoke

In the mornings I was throwing up, in the afternoons I was throwing up, and in the evenings I was throwing up. I’d try to eat, and would just throw up. I was picked up by the police a few weeks later in a sting operation. By this point I was almost five months along.

When I went to court, they didn’t have enough on me to keep me or convict me, because I hadn’t taken the money or even negotiated the price for my services. Plus, the officers had not shown up in court to assist in the prosecution. So the charges were dropped.

However, the judge told me, “You won’t be released.”
“What do you mean?” I asked.
He explained that I was being held without charges, but the baby I was carrying was being protected from me. I would remain in custody until the birth of the baby.
“You can’t do that,” I said. “You can’t hold me without charges.”
“Lady, I just did,” was his answer.

I had been in jail for about two weeks before I went to court. They had confirmed I was pregnant, given me double meal trays and vitamins, and sent me to a prenatal appointment at the local hospital.

I see now they were holding me for that court date, collecting information and waiting for me to reach five months. At five months, the fetus is considered a human life and not just a fetus. The baby is considered viable and has a chance at life if born that early. Taking the baby into custody as they did was the best thing they could have done for me or her.

The judge informed the county officers that he was to be notified when I went into labor and again at the time of delivery. Then he said, “Ms. McDonald, at the time of delivery you’ll be free to go if the baby is tested and found to be drug free. But if the baby tests positive for drugs, I promise you that the state will bring charges against you for child endangerment and any other charges I can come up with, and I will encourage maximum sentencing and full prosecution.” Then he looked at me with a smile and said, “You have a nice rest.”

While I was locked up, I was not offered any social services. I just stayed in a cell alone, waiting and waiting. That was in late 2000. I had the baby in March 2001. I remember getting double trays at mealtime to ensure the
baby grew.

I remember drinking gallons of water, too. Following my own mindless logic, I was trying to flush the drugs from the baby’s system.

To be continued…

Isaiah 11:3b-4 Jesus, the Judge

Posted in Isaiah, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , on January 19, 2014 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 11:3b-4 And He will not judge by what His eyes see, nor make a decision by what His ears hear; but with righteousness He will judge the poor, and decide with fairness for the afflicted of the earth; and He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked.

The He is Jesus. He will not rely on His senses, hearing and vision, to make determinations. Righteousness will be the determining factor. The Hebrew word for righteousness is “tsedeq”. It means what is just and right (Strong’s Concordance). It is fair and honest. It cannot be bought or bribed. It is equitable and has integrity. It does not care how much money somebody has.

…and with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked… In the Hebrew, the word for slay is muwth. It means to die, kill, or have one executed (Strong’s Concordance).

2 Thessalonians 2:8 Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming…

The lawless one is the Antichrist. In the Greek, the word for slay is anaireo. It means to take up, to lift up (from the ground), to take up for myself as mine, to take away, abolish, to put out of the way, or kill slay a man (definitions per Strong’s Concordance).

With this definition, the understanding would be Jesus is going to take the Antichrist as a possession and escort him to the Lake of Fire. Revelation 19:20-21 And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone. And the rest were killed with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh.

The Father is consistent with the expectation and intent of His Son throughout Scripture. Wickedness does not pay.

Psalm 2:9 “You shall break them with a rod of iron, You shall shatter them like earthenware.”
