It's no longer what you think, it has a whole new meaning!

How do you starve an Obama supporter? It's really very simple. Just hide their food stamps under their work shoes.

Please let me make this clear to everyone: I do not hate the man, I hate what he is doing to this nation and to our Constitution.

A Special Bible Lesson

Here is another Bible lesson that I felt was especially needed for all of us, being the current situation we are facing today.
Bible Pathway Ministries

Bible Pathway with Rick Hash

Read: 1 Timothy 1-6

Highlights: Warning against false doctrine; thankfulness for mercy; bishops and deacons; instructions about widows and elderly; gain or godliness.

I exhort therefore, that first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty (1 Tim. 2:1-2).
Nero, the Roman ruler, was cruelly persecuting Christians at the time Paul wrote the Book of 1 Timothy. Yet, the Bible emphasizes the importance of Christians praying for those who have authority over them, even though many rulers are ruthless, ungodly men and women in leadership roles all over the world. In the United States in particular, there are many political and business leaders who follow Christ. We must remember to pray for these leaders. We can pray that God would touch their hearts and draw them to Himself. Even if the leaders are treating believers poorly, that is the time to pray for them. Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you (Luke 6:28). We can pray, that God will turn their hearts. We can also pray that God will remove them from power and place a believer, in their office. We know from the Word of God that when people begin to pray and hearts change that a whole nation can experience revival. If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins, and will heal their land
(2 Chr. 7:14). Sometimes it is in God’s plan for the rulers of a nation to be unbelievers.
Strange as it may seem, the Scriptures record occasions when God even used wicked rulers to accomplish His purpose. God may do this for many reasons. Sometimes, it is to pronounce judgment on a nation. Other times, it may take an evil leader to wake a nation up to its complacency. Even other times, God may be trying to steer the nation in another direction and it took this leader to do that. We often waste a lot of effort trying to figure out what God is doing when it is not in His plan for us to know. At times, He may reveal what He is doing, but not always. For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the LORD (Is. 55:8).
We can have the confidence from God’s WORD that our prayers work. They work in our world and in the unseen world. Hearts can be changed, bodies healed and demons put to flight.
And I will give unto thee the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven (Matt. 16:19).

Thought for the Day: Pray for all that are in authority – both political and spiritual.

Today's Bible Lesson

Philippians 1-4 (KJV)


Exhortations of humility, steadfastness; Christ's humiliation and exaltation; Christ, our strength and provider.

For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the Spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh . . . If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more (Phil. 3:3-4).

The flesh is the term by which Scripture refers to our human nature that is not subject to the indwelling Holy Spirit (Rom. 8:7), for the flesh lusteth against the Spirit (Gal. 5:17). Satan knows that the effort and energy of the natural man can never please God, conquer sin, or transform lives. The self-effort of the flesh is still the great enemy that continually hinders and quenches the Spirit. Much unsuccessful effort can be traced to this one failure. We can try and try with everything within us and we will never overcome the enemy. We are incapable within ourselves. We have a flesh that desires to sin. Our own righteousness will not stand up to the attack of the devil. But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away (Is. 64:6).

Reliance upon our own physical abilities becomes obvious when we allow our human efforts to take priority over daily prayer, Bible reading, and waiting in faith for God's direction. The enemy has always used our physical and emotional needs to find weaknesses within ourselves. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world (I John 2:16). This is the way Satan attacked Jesus when He was fasting in the desert. The devil first reminded Jesus how hungry He must be. In this, he used the lust of the flesh, as His flesh desired food. Secondly, he showed Jesus all the worldly cities. This used the lust of the eyes. Finally, he tried to get Jesus to throw Himself off the top of the temple. He even used Scripture that said the angels would rescue Him. This attack was using the pride of life. Did Jesus fall to the enemy? No! Why? He countered Satan with Scripture every time. We must be ready to do the same. In our flesh we are no match. Our hope is in God and His Word. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world (I John 4:4).

Remember that we have a host of Scripture at our disposal to combat the enemy. God gave us this great weapon to use in our daily Spiritual warfare. Ask the Lord to help you in all that you endeavour to accomplish. Ask Him to reveal from the Word of God things that will help you in your daily walk.

We are to allow the Holy Spirit to reign in our lives. When we choose to live by our own rules, we set ourselves up for great loss. Let's be like Paul who declared: I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me (Phil. 4:13).

Thought for the Day: Sure disaster awaits the Christian who feels so strong that he does not need the Lord's help.
