To Those in the Gulf

Some of you are suffering right now. Some — with the loss of your source of income — are wondering when and where that next pay check is coming from. Some may even be wondering if you are going to be able to live in that home you own or rent.

Whether you believe in my God or not, still I ask that you hear me. There IS a God. And He has seen this event long before it happened. THEN WHY did He let it happen, some may ask? Well, I can’t answer that, but IF man had anything to do with it being done intentionally, you can bet God had nothing to do with it. Could He have stopped it? Sure he could have. But, if you have children and they reach a certain age, do you control everything they do? Do you force them to obey you? Of course not. God is also like that. He would no more want you or I to be a puppet than you would want your child to be one.

I could tell you what I really think about this catastrophe being part of end time events and stuff like that, but that will not suffice for the moment. That is not what you need right now. Not that I know what you need — I certainly don’t, because I’m not God.

But I do know what it is to feel helpless, hopeless and in deep despair. That much I do know. Though I am not in your shoes and could not possibly know what you are experiencing, I do know, that all of us — American or not — are about to experience events that will either make us or break us.

There’s an old saying that a lot of folk think it is true: God helps those who helps themselves. Uh, actually, no. That is a lie. He helps those who put their trust in Him. We all will come to a point — if not more than one — where we will be at the end of our rope. But rest assure, GOD is at the end of that rope.

He sees what you are going through and He cares. He truly does. The God who created heaven and earth is perfectly capable of taking care of any of us at anytime.

Do not give up — come what may. The things you are experiencing are meant to strengthen you for more things that are coming.  All of America will be next in one way or the other. You have had a head start. My prayer is that God will raise you up and you will be an example of truth, grace and strenght for the rest of us in the days to come.  

Do not put your hope in man. Put your hope in God. He has been your provider and He will continue to be your provider.

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace, comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work. –2 Thessalonians 2:16 -17 —

This should make feminists and liberals angry. Beings it is you people with all the compassion. But it will mean nothing to you, because it is mainly the libs behind this kind of thing. After all, they know what is best for us all, right? WRONG! Those of you who are setting up who is to live and who is to die, are going to burn! Oh yes!

3 Namibian women with HIV say they were sterilized

WINDHOEK, Namibia — Supporters of three HIV-positive women in Namibia who say they were sterilized without their consent held protests to support the women’s decision to sue the government, a legal aid group said Wednesday.

The Legal Assistance Center said protesters began staging sit-ins at two state hospitals in the southern African nation on Wednesday.

The three women allege they were sterilized without their consent, and that the sterilization violated their rights to have children and not to be discriminated against.

The women are seeking damages at a High Court hearing scheduled for Friday. Protest organizers said the sit-ins will continue until after the hearing, the first legal challenge of its kind in Namibia.

The government maintains the women gave their consent and says it will fight the damages claim.

One protest organizer, Vicky Noa, said the sit-in was about women’s demand for fair medical treatment.

There should be “peace of mind that if you have HIV you can still go to the hospital and be treated with dignity and equality,” she said. “If we were scared that we might be sterilized we will not use the hospital services as much. We do not want to be denied the right to motherhood.”

RedeemedHippie:[No woman should! Especially from any government agency. You remember this you young liberal women who have put healthcare as your god in America. You remember this. You older ones too, remember. You may have had your children but there is no guarantee you will get to have grandchidlren. You remember this.] 

Mark Nonkes, a spokesman from the legal support group, said about 40 people gathered at Katutura hospital in the capital early Wednesday, waving placards and handing out flyers.

At a second facility north of the capital of Windhoek, patients and their visitors were supporting the protest there.

UNAIDS estimates there are some 200,000 people living with HIV in Namibia, about one fifth of the population in one of the world’s most sparsely populated nations.

Veronica Kalambi, an official from the Women’s Health Network, said women’s rights were often violated in state health institutions.

“HIV-positive women are holding the health system accountable for the wrongs done to them,” she told The Associated Press.

Sterilization is a drastic tactic to treat HIV-positive women, as mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS can be prevented with medication.

Witchcraft in Media and a Testimony

WARNING: Graphic descriptions of true events. I would not let a child watch this.

If you wish, fast forward to 4:50 to a beautiful testimony of what God did for a woman caught up in witchcraft. Very moving.

There is an account of the possessed man who ran to Jesus. They leave out the part where the Word says, “and he worshipped Him.” I think that is important to mention. Think about it, this man was so full of devils YET, he worshipped Jesus.

And I guess this is as good as time as any to ask, does anyone know why Jesus allowed the demons to enter the swine? Surely, He wasn’t having mercy on demons?! All I can understand from that is how angry it must have made the owners of the pigs after they (the pigs) jumped over a cleft!
