Another false prophet


I am taking a moment here from my hiatus to poke my finger into the eye of the rapture watch/doomsday cult.  

People like this false prophet using everything but scripture to tell you lies.

These Balaams claiming to know something would have us sitting on our roofs waiting for the end.

Well here’s a clue it didn’t happen. Nobody knows when Christ will return, nobody.

Matthew 24:36

But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. 

So read your Bible, listen to the elders in church as they teach and throw away every book that sets dates for future events.

That is all.

Catechism


What is prayer?

    Prayer is pouring out our hearts to Godin praise, petition, confession of sin, and thanksgiving.

    Psalm 62:8

    Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us.

    Catechism


    How does the Holy Spirit help us?

      The Holy Spirit convicts us of our sin, comforts us, guides us, gives us spiritual gifts and the desire to obey God; and he enables us to pray and to understand God’s Word.

      Ephesians 6:17–18

      Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.

      On Hiatus


      Hi as I said last Friday I am taking a break from the blog the catechism posts will continue every week as they are automatic.  I will return in a month or two.  I have plans to update the look of the blog and we’ll see how that goes but I will be back God willing.

      Catechism


      What do we believe about the Holy Spirit?

        That he is God, coeternal with the Father and the Son, and that God grants him irrevocably to all who believe.

        John 14:16–17

        And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.

        Frenetic Friday


        So let’s talk about hairstyle:
        HT: Billy Leonhart

        Now just because this is the haircut my father and uncles wore when they enlisted and fought against the Nazis in World War II doesn’t mean anything.  Because history who needs it! However let me suggest some alternatives.

        The Staliny yes comrades there is nothing that say antifa like the haircut of a man who slaughtered between 20 to 40 million people. (Accounts vary)

        Ah the Che Che for the rough urban social justice warrior.  The head of Castro’s La Cabaña prison and responsible for over 1000 firing squad executions and the forced labor camps which imprisoned Jehovah witnesses, homosexuals, Afro-Cuban priests, and anyone else who opposed the revolution. And of course the Mao, the Pol Pot, and the Kim Jong Il.  You might want to select by the number of people they had executed.

        Switching to the Evangelical world have you heard about the Nashville Statement?  Click on the link if you want to read it.  Needless to say this has caused the liberals/progressive “Christians” an apoplectic fit. You can read some of the responses:


        We go to Iceland for some breaking news from the Culture of Death!

        Down Syndrome disappearing in Iceland because of Abortion

        Speaking of Science this is a few weeks old but worth noting:

        Man plays God

        In a news report from the MIT Technology Review scientists have reported that they have successfully modified human DNA and created a genetically modified human embryo.   Soon despite what scientist say won’t happen will.  Designer babies have entered the first stage soon the dreams of eugenics will take on reality.  And just so you know the method they are using known as CRISPR doesn’t create “mules” no these children will pass on their changes to future generations. Last year this technology was call a weapon of mass destruction by top US Intelligence services.

        Finally I am taking a brief hiatus from the blog.  A minimum of a month a maximum of two months.  The catechism posts will continue to occur on Sunday.  Look for changes coming to the blog.

         

        Catechism


        Since we are redeemed by grace alone, through faith alone, where does this faith come from?

          All the gifts we receive from Christ we receive through the Holy Spirit, including faith itself.

          Titus 3:4–6

          But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior.

          Movie Review: Little Shop of Horrors



          Producer:  David Geffen
          Writer:  Howard Ashman
          Director:  Frank Oz
          Cast:  Rick Moranis,Ellen Greene,Vincent Gardenia,Steve Martin,James Belushi,John Candy,Christopher Guest,Bill Murray
          Based on Little Shop of Horrors
          by Alan Menken Howard Ashman
          The Little Shop of Horrors
          by Roger Corman

          Considering this is the day of the solar eclipse it seemed appropriate that this movie should be reviewed.

          Little Shop of Horrors a musical based on the infamous Roger Cotman film that was rumored to have been shot in a 24 hour period. (Actually 48 hours) about a shnook named Seymour Krelborn who finds a unique plant after a solar eclipse.  Seymour works in a run down florist shop owned by Mr. Mushnik along with the beautiful Audrey whom Seymour secretly loves.  Mr. Mushnik wants to close the shop but Audrey suggests that a unique plant may draw customers.  Mr. Mushnik puts Seymour’s plant, named Audrey 2, into the window and sure enough the customers come in by the droves.  But Audrey 2 droops at the end of the day and Seymour discovers the awful truth to keep Audrey 2 alive he has to feed her blood.

          And as Audrey 2 grows so does the need for more blood until the obvious happens.  But by this time Audrey 2 tells Seymour that all the luck he has been experiencing is because of her.

          I won’t give away much more of the movie.  Needless to say it is a fun in a black comedy manner and you might find yourself singing along to some of the songs.  My favorite is the dentist song and I usually hum it as I am getting my bi-yearly check up.  My dental hygienist hates me.

          This movie is for fifteen years old and older.  There is some swearing and physical abuse of a woman, as well as the murders.  But it is balanced by some great songs and some great acting by the cast.  

          This is a four star movie.
