No one can love like God loves unless they have obeyed Acts 2:38,9:
Peter, who had been given the keys to the kingdom of Heaven, the same Peter whose revelation was the very rock on which the Lord said He was going to build His church, this same Peter stood and told them what they had to do to be saved.
Then Peter said unto them, REPENT, and be BAPTIZED every one of you in the NAME of Jesus Christ for the REMISSION of SIN, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the PROMISE is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
So they, (the disciples,) were in Jerusalem waiting on the promise of the Lord. And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all in one place and in one accord. And it happened. The promise of the Father, the Holy Ghost, The Comforter, The Spirit of Truth, the Spirit of Christ, The Spirit of Resurrection filled all the house where they were sitting and there appeared cloven tongues like as of fire and it sat upon on each of them and they were ALL Filled with this Holy Ghost and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Peter came with other Apostles and preached Christ unto them and while he was preaching the Holy Ghost fell on Cornelius' entire household. The Apostles were amazed. Do you know why?
"And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord." (Acts 10:45-48)
Rom 5:5......the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. 29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also. 30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. 31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. 32 For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.
33 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. 34 And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. 35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
1Jn 3:23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.
Mat 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
I know what it is to have Love of God spread abroad in my heart by the Holy Ghost more than 41 years ago and YES it will cause you to LOVE EVERYBODY. Everybody means just that ...everybody.
If Texas left the Union?
If Texas seceded we wouldn’t have to worry about the nation wide mandatory vaccination of young girls 11-13 with the Merck drug that fights the HPV virus. He made the vaccination mandatory and then gave parents the option to opt out on behalf of their children. Isn’t that the government intrusion he’s complaining about regarding the Federal government.
He rejects stimulus when it pertains to extending unemployment benefits as his unemployment rate rises. Another Republican champion of preserving no bid contracts for Cheney’s Halliburton and large bonuses for failed finical CEO’s but let’s not help the unemployed in this economic town turn. Instead let’s break unions and ruin more high playing, benefited jobs for those not collage educated.
It’s not the Federal Government Rick Perry is complains about it’s a Federal Government that impacts his wish list. If they secede he’d have to fund the border guard from a state level or appeal to the government of the United States for help. If they secede he’d have to fund entitlement programs are do away with them entirely and then what ? He rejected the funds earmarked for extending unemployment benefits but he accepted the 17 billion for other programs. He accepted more then he rejected then went to the tea party and talked of the intrusive Federal Govement. It was a gimmick to appeal to what Republicans think is the anti American independent thinkers who hate taxes, gays and abortion. The idea the Texas is uniquely American and doesn’t need America is the wet dream of a delusional desperate regressed grand old party of days gone by.
He also grossly inflated the contributions Texas makes to the country and was wrong on several key points including their right to secede. I don’t want to diminish Texas it’s a fantastic state with a rich history and incredible people. With an honorable mention going to the authentic Mexican and Southwestern grills can’t be beat.
What Rick Perry did was dishonest and stirred a group within the country whose influence he is over estimating in hopes of winning in the election of independents coming. He like many Republicans is hoping to tap the grass roots of appeal of independents like Ron Paul and mainline it.
When formed in 1845 Texas did not negotiate the right to secede from the union. They did negotiate the right to divide up into four different states at some point, they can not pull out of the Union without expecting a military response. I love the Texas military but they wouldn’t be able to stand up under the United States military of the other 49 states, or 48 if Alaska refuses. It would be devastating for the state and they’d have to manage the border issue without Federal help which also would be a daunting task. His rant like that of Sarah Palin was intended to appeal to fringe groups within Texas who hold the annexation of it into the union was illegal, someone needs to let Rick Perry know this isn’t the age of the Alamo.
He wasn’t misquoted he literally said I know people think this is just a gathering for far right fringe groups, I don’t think that’s true but “if you are I’m with you”.
If Texas seceded it would be forced with funding our ending the NASA program in it’s state. It would have to get the NCAA to give them state a special consideration for participation in sporting events. Not a member of the Union it’s popularity might decline as a tourist state and local airlines might consider pulling their branches out of the new nation. It would likely be accepted in NAFTA without an issue and get a vote on the security council without an issue. If it joined the United Nations it could get NATO troops help with securing their border, this will help with the steep cost to the nation. Of course after secession they could consider a new approach to illegal’s, they could shoot them on site and fine heavily the businesses that employ them, deny them benefits and rights. That might open them up to human rights violations issues but they’d be free of Federal oppression. They could drive unions out and create a low cost state for corporations since Rick Perry is worried about employers he’d create an employer friendly state and pay workers low wages, withhold benefits, deny education options.
What Rick Perry really needs to worry about his two former presidents came from his state and there is nothing that prevents them from running against him for the office of president of the Republic of Texas. If he divided the state up it would mean more senators and congressmen to represent them in the Union as it now stands.
Today this Texas Lady had her coffee with two nice warm Poppy Seed Koloches. Back to my roots day.
When my children where little, they loved an occasional pancake supper. That was an easy one to prepare, & we poured designs in the pan. Oh ! sweet,sweet memories
