It is with a heavy heart that I bring to you the news that our dear friend Phil passed away this morning.

Phil went into cardiac arrest again while hospital staff attempted to bring his body temperatures up and this time they could not resuscitate him.

We’re going to miss Grumpy. He was a friend, patriot, veteran and one heck of a warrior on social media. On a personal note, I will miss our chat sessions.

Sympathies and blessings to Phil’s family, friends and loved ones.

God bless you, Phil. Rest in peace, my friend.

LONDONDERRY, N.H. – Federal bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. are threatening a New Hampshire school district after it withdrew its local high school from the National School Lunch Program. School officials last year decided to remove Londonderry High School from the National School Lunch Program after nutrition regulations championed by first lady Michelle Obama resulted in a significant drop in cafeteria sales, and a significant increase in food waste, the New Hampshire Union Leader reports.

The move meant the high school forfeited federal subsidies that come with the program, but officials increased lunch prices and introduced new offerings students love to make up the difference, and then some[…]

Fear of Others?

c600x450Are you afraid of others? It seems there is a misconception by some that if you have great faith you suffer from fear. My God tells me that if I trust in Him, He will take my fears away!

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort which we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

Psalms 34:4 “I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all myfears. 5 They looked to Him and were radiant, and their faces were not ashamed. 6 This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. 7 The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them. 8 Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!

Unhappiness and dissatisfaction cannot exist when you put your faith in the Lord and He takes away your fears.

Render Unto Caesar – Ken Turner

We have a responsibility as followers of Christ to defend the Bible and correct misquotations and deliberate manipulations of His Word –1 Peter 3:15– and in his post, Mr. Turner used a partial quote in order to fit his agenda. I do not know this man but in reading his post the intent is clear. The complete verse, Matthew 22:21 They said to Him, Ceasar’s.” And He said to them, “Render therefore to Ceasar the things that are Ceasar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”

The intent of Jesus is clear here, He was asked about paying taxes. He made clear taxes were the product of man and government, God doesn’t require taxes. God does have a part in marriage. God was clear about that as well. Genesis 2:24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

Marriage has always been the province of God!!!! The United States formally recognized marriage in the law in 1923. But even if marriage is recognized by law, it remains something that belongs to God and therefore what He tells us is a priority over what man or government orders.

The statement by Mr. Turner misleads what the Bible says and is therefore a false declaration on what is required by the followers of Christ. In all that we do if there is a conflict between man’s law and God, God is always first.wpid-chr14



Message for the Day

1.jpg21 Then the LORD said, “There is a place near me where you may stand on a rock. 22 When my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by. 23 Then I will remove my hand and you will see my back; but my face must not be seen.” Exodus 33:21-23

Stand up for God

1 The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble;
the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;
2 Send thee help from the sanctuary,
and strengthen thee out of Zion;
3 Remember all thy offerings,
and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.
4 Grant thee according to thine own heart,
and fulfil all thy counsel.
5 We will rejoice in thy salvation,
and in the name of our God we will set up our banners:
the Lord fulfil all thy petitions.
6 Now know I that the Lord saveth his anointed;
he will hear him from his holy heaven
with the saving strength of his right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses:
but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. (KJV)Psalm 20:1-7
