A Reason For Joy

Today is a special day for joy, thanksgiving and praise to God.

Due to the efforts of the five sane members of the U.S. Supreme Court, millions of babies may be spared from dismemberment on bloody sacrificial altars in baby mills throughout our country, denying the disgusting devil’s servants who run these baby mills both their prey and their profit. The procedures used by the butchers in these baby mills are truly barbaric and sickening in the extreme . . . clearly the devil’s handiwork. Shutting down a large number of them is unquestionably a compelling reason for celebration.


A Song of Praise for the Lord’s Faithfulness to His People

Psalm 100 – A Psalm of Thanksgiving.

Make a joyful shout to the Lord, [a]all you lands!
Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
Know that the Lord, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and [b]not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the Lord is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.

Shout joyfully to the LORD (100:1). The term “joyfully” doesn’t appear in the Hebrew. Literally rendered, it’s “Shout to the Lord!” The word “shout” comes from a Hebrew word meaning “to raise a noise, to give a blast (as on a trumpet).” The composer calls for the kind of shouting that erupts from a person so full of joy he can’t contain his emotions, the kind of uninhibited whooping you hear from fans at a football game. He says, in effect, “Shout in joyful approval of God!”

It’s hard to imagine feeling that joyful about the Lord, isn’t it? Let’s face it; when’s the last time you shouted like a sports fan because of something you read in Scripture? When have you ever pumped your fists and shouted after a sermon on God’s attributes? I’m not suggesting we become charismatic; but certainly we should feel some excitement, at least a little joy. Sometimes the Lord does things that defy natural explanation, accomplishing something completely beyond our capabilities. When He comes to our rescue, don’t accept this silently. Shout to Him. Lift up your voice in praise! By doing so, we counteract that grind of ingratitude that so easily can climb aboard.

Serve the LORD with gladness (100:2). A healthy sign of the grateful life is serving. Few decisions are more effective in easing the daily grind of ingratitude than serving others. In doing God’s work, we serve Him, not the local church, not the superintendent of some department, not the pastor or some board. We serve the Lord. It is He we worship and for Him we labor—not people! And please observe that the motivation is neither grudging nor guilt-ridden; we are urged to serve “with gladness.” The Hebrew term for this phrase was used to describe pleasant things that gave happiness.

Now let’s get real for a moment. You don’t always feel like serving. Yet waiting until you feel grateful isn’t a good plan; you’ll never serve! The psalm doesn’t imply we should serve only when our hearts are filled with joy. On the contrary, we are commanded to serve regardless; gladness will soon follow. In fact, when I start feeling sorry for myself or my attitude takes a cynical turn, I know it’s time to serve someone who’s in worse shape. It’s not long before gladness pushes negativity out of my heart.

Come before Him with joyful singing (100:2). Let me simply emphasize the word “joyful.” I get the picture that God prefers to have us be happy people, rejoicing in His presence, for He has mentioned it in each line of this psalm thus far.

Are you joyful? Really now, is your face pleasant—is a smile frequently there? Do your eyes reveal a joyful spirit within? When you sing in church, for example, is it with joy? The next chance you get, glance at the people around you. Are they smiling? Look at the people ahead of you or behind you. Any smiles . . . any joy?

It’s time to lighten up! After all, joy is a choice. Dress up your testimony with a genuine spirit of joy! It does the heart good and it’s truly contagious.

Joy is a choice. A genuine spirit of joy does the heart good and it’s truly contagious.
— Charles R. Swindoll


What to think about when . . .

Everything around you seems to be going wrong . . .
We know that God makes all things work together for good for those who love him and who are called according to his purpose.  Romans 8:28

We see people trying to get ahead by lying and cheating . . .
In their hearts human beings plan their lives, but the Lord decides where their steps will take them.  Proverbs 16:9

We’re thinking our future looks pretty dismal . . .
No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined the things that God has prepared for those who love him. 1 Cor 2:9

We see those liars and cheaters acting like rich aristocrats above the law . . .
Wait for the Lord and keep to his way, and he will exalt you to inherit the land; you will look on the destruction of the wicked. Psalm 37:34

We feel all the troubles of the world on our shoulders . . .
But not only that, let us also rejoice in our troubles; because we know that trouble produces endurance, endurance produces character, and character produces hope; and this hope does not let us down, because God’s love for us has already been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.  Romans 5:3-5

Every day seems just part of a long, grinding existence . . .
The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes. The Lord has done it this very day; let us rejoice today and be glad.  Psalm 118:22-24

We see the world literally going to hell . . .
Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. Colossians 3:2-4 

We see traitors trying to take over our country . . .
God wins!

“We are advised to not judge ALL muslims by the actions of a few lunatics,”

____________

That is true.

muslims should not be judged by the actions of a few lunatics, they should be judged by the actions of one lunatic.

The mass-murderer they choose to follow and seek to emulate, their founding lunatic, their spiritual leader and teacher.

Things which normal people call atrocities, mohamad encouraged and called ‘good’. So the “actions of a few lunatics” are the actions of the faithful, those who actually do what mohamad taught.

And where there are a billion followers, there are never just “a few” of anything.

Doesn’t every follower seek to be faithful?

If not, then why continue following?

Some might say because in many parts of the world, if someone tries to leave islam, they will be murdered for apostasy.

Does that not say it all?

Who will defend or make excuses for a religion that murders those who would try to leave it?

  • Can any Trump supporter please rationally explain why the supposed election steal by dems was refuted by his own AG, his own acting AG, GOP AGs, GOP election officials, Trump appointed judges, most of Trump’s advisers, and most of the GOP lawmakers?

  • I have no idea why Barr lied, but all he had to do is watch Gregg Phillips’ testimony to the Arizona legislature and he would realize he was wrong, if he was honest. I know phone location capabilities from mapping with Google and my phone. I know drop-box set-backs are easily within phone location resolutions (just listen to Siri’s lane warnings when you drive – that embodies the science principles Phillips is talking about). The science that Phillips presented was extremely convincing. He used very conservative parameters, but a fairly brilliant idea (repeated trips to stash houses) which refined his data set in a way that actually makes the exact precision of the data a moot point – and THAT is brilliant.
  • He’s undoubtedly missing a LOT of data too – from mules who were smart enough to confound the system. That shows me the magnitude was WAY more than needed to throw the election.
  • I’m not going to say that Barr didn’t know better – he had to. LE uses this stuff all the time. I don’t know why he lied, but he is ex-CIA, and the loyalty runs deep.
  • I haven’t even seen “Mules” yet. But once I understood the data, that’s all I needed. It’s hilariously brilliant science. AND here is the funniest/saddest part. This is the exact same science that Apple uses to make their phones responsive to users – to make them know that you’re looking at them, or putting them in your pocket, etc. THEY KNOW THE TRUTH, TOO. Sad that they’re THAT dishonest.
  • You don’t even NEED the video to know that Phillips caught these jokers – AND why Pocahontas is on the warpath to restrict this data. HA! Phillips proved it to me. I don’t care what the world thinks. Athanasius contra mundum!

Comments a questions for several people, which, of course, all are welcome to read and comment on. I tried paragraphing, but can’t seem to do it, so here goes. To TheseTruths, I liked your take on the man you were defending, suddenly can’t remember the name, and frankly, I haven’t payed a lot of attention to his work on the election fraud but I love Truethe Vote, which may be the same thing. To D.P., how do we know the supposed death-bed confession from Norma McCorvy is real? I mean, maybe it is, but whom can we trust? She’s not around to deny it. Maybe it’s CIA or some other entity wanting to discourage us from believing a story that helped our side. Or just wanting to turn us cynical? Maybe some are desperate to make us believe none of the people in the baby-murder mills repent, or even if they don’t become Christians, at least turn away from this evil. I just don’t know.

Linda

I agree, Zoe. I can’t believe that any Christian group would pay her to pretend to be pro-life. That just doesn’t compute. Now I can easily believe the other side paid her to be the face of pro-choice. This sounds like some nasty projection.

singularzoe

I guess my big concern is the way the people behind this, whether the three-letter agencies, the Rockefeller evil-doers, whoever, are trying to manipulate all of us and have done my whole life and beyond. Also the communists, and they really do wish us ill, and Russia/China/eu Etc. are allies, and they play good cop/bad cop and all kinds of games to throw us off, and I gag every time I hear someone talk about how heroic Russia was in World War II, knowing they were allies of the nazis until Hitler turned on Stalin, but they are all totalitarians wanting to control the world.

RDS

The world has been so topsey-turvey for so long, it’s hard to know what the real story is about Norma McCorvey.
IMO, the best that can be done for her is to ask the Almighty God to have mercy on her soul.

Wolf Moon

Amen!

TheseTruths

Hi, Zoe! Thank you. I was talking about Gregg Phillips, who is the man who worked with Catherine Englebrecht of True the Vote to gather the data that was shown in the movie 2000 Mules to prove election fraud. (In case you don’t know, the movie shows people on video dropping multiple ballots into drop boxes, which is illegal. Also, through cell phone tracking, they found out a lot of data about those people like where else they had been, where they got the ballots, etc.) Gregg and Catherine are getting sheriffs on board to help monitor elections and fight the fraud, and also to help with other issues. Some of it can be seen on the website Project America Now.

I still haven’t seen the film, which is why wasn’t familiar with him. Thank you. Illinois is steeped in voter fraud. After all, it’s the Chicago way, not that I live near there. It’s shameful that in my district democrat election judges vastly outnumber republican ones, according to our dem county clerk.l, it is

Deplorable Patriot

Zoe, that bit about Norma McCorvy has been out for a while. I don’t put it past anyone to pay a mercenary to get their message out, or for humans to be callous. That source is not trusted by many here, but the information is usually solid.

singularzoe

Thank you, D.P. I had seen it before, but for some reason it really got to me yesterday.

Evangelicals need to seriously reevaluate how they talk about and treat Catholics. Look at the Supreme Court—it was courageous, faithful Catholics that delivered the end of Roe. Spirit-filled Christians should be thankful for such clear moral teaching and bold action.

Wolf Moon

I chalk it up more indirectly. Real Catholics believe in truth and honesty, and will admit that Roe v. Wade was shoddy law. They didn’t ban abortion. They removed fake law generating a fake right to an abortion out of thin air.

Well, it’s Sunday night. Were there any riots this weekend at all? Any church vandalism? Did the “Night of Rage” ever pan out? I’m not seeing anything, but I also didn’t look very hard.

RF121

One pregnancy center in Longmont, CO vandalized that I saw. Overall a big fizzle. Dems gotta be worried about that outcome.

Can’t even get your droogs moving on a fine June evening for some horrorshow ultraviolence. Are they all viddying Disney cartoon lesbians?

I looked quite a bit. The biggest thing out here was the guy with a makeshift flamethrower who was arrested and charged w attempted murder on a p.o. I saw more vile videos on gay groomers from the weekend “pride” than any rage night.
