As For Me

As for me, I have no ax to grind, but “the ax of truth.” My grandparents were poor and uneducated. When the great depression of 1929 occurred, my grandfather was twenty-five years old, my grandmother was twenty-one, and my mother was three years old. As a family they were share croppers, which meant that they worked the fields of other people; my mother would help in picking the fields (that would be child abuse today) for cotton, peas, beans, corn, and anything else that would make money for them, or give them food to eat. They would farm in Florida in the winter time, and farm in Georgia during the summer months. My grandfather would hunt and fish for food, in addition to the food that they would take from the ground. As with almost all of my family, they were Democrats. My grandfather used to talk about “Hoover Days,” and thought that FDR was the poor man’s President. Myself, I am neither Democrat, nor Republican. I don’t even like the term “Independent,” because after a political debate, there is always a line that shows up on the tv screen that shows Independents as “being a line” that hangs helplessly in the air between Democrats and Republicans. My father was a merchant seaman, union member and Democrat. He was in the United States Army Air Corps in the second world war, and was stationed in the Philippines, not far from the base where I was assigned during the Vietnam War; he was also assigned to a base in New Guinea. My mother was a homemaker (that is higher than a Ph. D.). She also had jobs, but was always at home whenever my brother, sister and I would come home from school. When I started school, first grade was “first.” My SAT score was “808,” “ouch!” During the year before Jimmie Davis became the Democrat Governor of the state where my family resided, he recorded “Suppertime.” San Nunn was a Democrat Senator of the state where I resided at the time of my military retirement; he flew an American flag over our nation’s capitol, on the day that I retired, in honor of my military service. That flag is now in my retirement shadow box, which also has ribbons and medals, of which I know nothing about the significance of most of them. If a funeral procession approaches me, I stop my car and pray for the grieving family members. If I am at a parade, and see the American flag being carried toward me, I stand at attention, remove my hat and place it over my heart, and remain standing at attention until the flag passes by. I love “Mom, home and apple pie.” I believe that the United States of America is the best nation that has ever existed. I believe in God (Elohim) as the creator of our world, and try to honor Christ as my Lord and Savior. I love and respect those whom may neither love nor respect me.

The Church is the Church, and Israel is Israel. The Church did not replace Israel, and is not spiritual Israel. In the New Testament, “church” and “Israel” are mentioned as being separate entities. In the New Testament “church” is mentioned 112 times; Israel is mentioned 79 times; both are mentioned as being separate entities The Kingdom “has not yet come,” and will not come until the Jewish bloodline of Israel accepts God’s chosen king (Deuteronomy 17:15), which will take place at the end of the Tribulation when the nation of Israel faces decimation and calls on Messiah, Christ, in faith, to save them (Zechariah 12:10). Individual salvation is of the Jews (John 4:22), and comes through Christ (John 14:6). Things are discussed in this website that relate to God’s creation, from “eternity to eternity,” and all that is addressed within those parameters. Consider Isaiah 43:13, “Even from eternity I am He, And there is no one who can rescue from My hand; I act, and who can reverse it?” The Moody Study Bible adds a comment: “God is the ruler of all, and there is nothing that can stand against Him. His will is irresistible. The Bible Knowledge Commentary adds this thought: “No one can reverse what God puts into action or thwart His plans.” The articles that are found in this site may relate to anything that is found in the Bible, from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation22.21, as well as anything else that may relate to the Bible.
