For those of you who may have been offended by the unannounced hiatus...my apologies. I admit that there's not a whole lot I can add, as far as comments, at this time, to the current fiasco called the United States, or the soon to be, the United States of Socialist Republic(USSR), under Mr. Obama.
As far as Israel is concerned, it's perfect timing in the selection of their new Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. As long as the United States has Barack Obama as the U.S. President, Israel is going to need Mr. Netanyahu; In my opinion, with Mr. Obama in office, Israel has pretty much lost United States as an ally and with no one else to back them up, Netanyahu is really going to be tested, but I believe that Benjamin Netanyahu will weather the storms of ostracism from the rest of the world and keep Israel safe. Whatever it takes, Israel needs to do whatever means to protect herself, because no one else will, with the exception of the all-mighty Lord. Because Israel is the apple of God's eye (Zechariah 2:8), I know for a fact that God will protect Israel from those who go against Her.

“God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God. Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
Psalm 53: 2, 3
King James Version
I was talking to a dear friend yesterday morning. My friend is going through a very difficult time right now and he is very discouraged. He has had a lot of sorrow and heartaches in his life. As he was sharing the difficult situation he is facing with me, God laid it on my heart to be sure that my friend knows without a shadow of doubt and understands that Jesus really does love him and that Jesus hurts when he is hurting. I gave my friend one of my new business cards and he read on the card “Jesus loves you.”
As my friend was looking at my business card, he got tears in his eyes and said “I’m not a good person. I don’t know how Jesus could love me. I have done a lot of terrible things in my life; hateful things that I know I should not have done.” I told my friend that the unconditional love of Jesus for us is not based on who we are or on the things that we have done or will do. The unconditional and compassionate love of our precious Saviour for us is based on who He is.
Jesus is not only the definition of unconditional love and compassion; He is unconditional love and compassion! His heart is filled with forgiveness for all of us. None of us are any good and none of us are worthy of His love, no, not one of us. It is only because the heart of our precious Saviour is filled with compassion, forgiveness and unconditional love for us that He willingly walked that long and lonely road to Calvary to die for our sins.
He allowed the people to curse Him, mock Him, ridicule Him, beat Him beyond recognition, spit on Him and nail Him to a cross of horror and agony because He loves us so much. What unconditional love and what compassion flowed from the heart of our precious Saviour on the darkest and most horrible day in all of history for you and for me.
That same unconditional love and compassion still flows from the heart of Jesus for every one of us every day of our lives. He loved us yesterday; He loves us today just as much as He did yesterday and He will love us tomorrow just as much as He does today. There is nothing that we can do that will cause Him to stop loving us. Yes, all of us fail Him and hurt Him at times, but He still loves us unconditionally. There is no one like Jesus! No one loves us like Jesus loves us.
We can do good deeds every day and give money to charity but those things do not make us good people. When my friend said to me “I’m not a good person”, he was telling the truth. My friend is not a good person. You are not a good person and I am not a good person. There was only one perfect person and His name is Jesus. I am so thankful that one day our dear Heavenly Father opened His compassionate heart to us and sent His beloved Son to pay the price for our sins so that we may have the privilege of being saved and live in Heaven with Him for all eternity.
Don’t wait until you think you are a good person to ask Jesus into your heart to be your personal Saviour. You will never be good enough no matter what you do. If you have never opened the door to your heart and invited Jesus into your heart to be your personal Saviour, I urge you, I plead with you to say “yes” to Jesus right now. You may not have a tomorrow or even another hour. Swallow your pride, admit that you are a sinner and invite the Christ of Calvary into your heart right now before it is too late!

Newsmax.com – McCain Shredding Obama's Lead: "Iraq isn't the only place where the surge seems to be working. John McCain's gains over the last five days are remaking the political landscape as Election Day approaches.
The double-digit leads Barack Obama held last week have evaporated, as all three of the top tracking polls..."
John McCain stated during his performance, "Do I know how to sing?...About as well as she [Barbara Streisand] knows how to govern America." Now here's my twist to the quote; Does Obama know how to govern America?...Sure, if Barbara Streisand knows how to govern America.
(Note: if the below video does not work, here is the link to the video's page: Classic Hits from John McCain)
See current SNL backstage footage of John and Cindy McCain as he reminisce on the Streisand performance:
What about Obama’s relationships with Rev. Wright and Father Fleuger and the radical Marxist Saul Alinsky (who dedicated his book to Lucifer) and Tony Rezco and Bill Ayers and Acorn and the Socialist New Party and the Woods Foundation? What about his sealed birth certificate?
Doesn’t it bother people that Hugo Chavez and the Castro brothers and the President of Iran and a spokesman for the PLO and Hamas and the PLA in Gaza and Al Qaida all want Obama to win? That should tell them something. All of these groups fear McCain. Duh!
"Awake sleeper and arise from the dead", Ephesians 5:14, before it is too late.
Trick or treat!
Pray for Obama's defeat.
Or else God help us.
