Israel – A Reminder for this New Year

“Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: and I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: and I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Genesis 12:1-3 (KJV)

With the recent UN resolution against the nation of Israel, and our leaders response against Israel by abstention from voting, and refusing to veto the action of the world court our nation has placed itself in great jeopardy.

I realize there are Palestinian Christians, and I realize there are people on the opposing side of Israel who may be peaceful; but the objection of Palestinian leaders is not a two state solution, but the destruction of Israel and then a one State solution.

Let us pray for the peace of Jerusalem, as did David millenniums ago…

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee. Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.” Psalm 122:6-9

 

Christmas Day Two Hundred Forty and Eight

What do I want for Christmas?

Missourians, Listen up.  I want the State of Missouri to have Religious Freedom.  Is it religious freedom if pastors, store owners and all others cannot live by their convictions on moral issues.  I want you to stand, if you are a Christian, and even if you are not; because if you do not one day it will affect your decisions; to stand for Missouri SJR 39.

The following is a FB message from the Missouri Baptist Pathway editor Don Hinkle.

There are two Republicans who, at the moment, are opposing passage of SJR 39 in the Emerging Issues Committee. Both are leaving the House after this term and intend to run for State Senate seats in their areas.

I want to urge every freedom-loving Missourian to stop and call and/or email both of these and tell them to let Missourians vote on SJR 39 and to pass it out of committee without amendments.

The first is Rep. Caleb Rowden of Columbia. His phone number is 573-751-1169. His email is: Caleb.Rowden@house.mo.gov.

The second is Rep. Anne Zerr of St. Charles. Her phone is 573-751-3717. Her email is: Anne.Zerr@house.mo.gov.

I will be on Dick Bott’s radio program tomorrow to discuss both of these lawmakers. It can be heard on all 49 Bott stations that blanket Missouri.

Let’s do it.
